Should vaping be banned in schools?

The team Reporter from Taupō Times

Hi neighbours - Principals in schools are backing the government's plan to ban most vape flavours.

They warn that without firm action, New Zealand will have a new generation of people addicted to nicotine. Many students mistakenly believe that vapes contain only water and flavouring.

What are your thoughts? Should vaping be banned in schools?

Hi Neighbours, could you imagine cows floating down the Waikato River?

These cows are floating on Europe's largest port, in another effort to make cattle farming more sustainable. The owners call it the world's first 'floating farm'. It's in Rotterdam and they want it to minimize waste and land use, and also bring food production closer to the city.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Te Kuiti

"Kia ora – Heidi Brittenden from New World Te Kuiti here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is the Allan Scott Rosé 2019. It was personally quite hard to pick one standout wine from the list, but this rosé is so delicious, and I usually don’t even like rosé! It’s a well- balanced dry wine that is also refreshing and fruity with hints of strawberry. If you’re new to rosé, this is a perfect drink to enjoy with friends on a sunny afternoon outdoors.”
