SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Remi

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

An update on a SPCA dog that was successfully adopted.

"Remi has been a ball of crazy adorable energy since the start. Meaning she fits right in with our big family and is always happy to meet new people. She continually find ways to get up to mischief but she's so cute it's impossible to get mad at her. She has adjusted really well to living with three cats and six chickens (although the cats were very unimpressed at first).Our entire family has fallen in love with her and can't wait to see what crazy adventures she gets up to next."

Team Of 400,000

Michael from Trentham

Around 400,000 eligible people living in NZ still need their first Covid vaccination jab.

That is a lot of high risk takers for spreading and contracting the disease.

One Pfizer jab is insufficient. One way of describing it, is: one jab gives up to 57% protection whereas two jabs gives up to 95% protection.

The full vaccination of two Pfizer jabs is mandatory for all workers in MIQ facilities, ports and airports. It is now mandatory for another grouping of workers with the first vaccination inserted by November 15 and these are: all educational teachers and school staff, healthcare workers and staff.

Listened to a seemingly educated middle aged English woman on ZB this morning who said that in NZ there is so much over concern and anxiety with Covid 19 whereas in England no one is very concerned and just go about their normal lives.
Well so much for concern. In the UK 8.4 million have been infected (England 7.1 million) and 139,000 deaths (England 121,000). Concerned NZ: 4,900 and 28.

Poll: Do you support the rules to build new homes?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tens of thousands of new homes could be possible in Wellington after a major bipartisan housing announcement from Labour and National.
A new bill supported by both major parties strips red tape from the building process in an effort to accelerate medium-density housing.
The rule change will allow people to build up to three homes of three storeys on most sites in Wellington without any need for resource consent from August 2022.
Tell us what you think and if you do not want your comments used put NFP.
