SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Eddie and Valarie

This week we feature two guinea pigs.

"We were bought to SPCA because our family could no longer care for us. We are now looking for a home together. Eddie and Valerie are sweet guinea pigs who love their food.
We are very sweet to watch, and are getting better at being handled, but we really don't like it, like most guinea pigs. We will need a large grassy area with a weatherproof hutch for day time. At night, we will need to be inside with you as part of your family so will need an area inside your home. It will need to be large enough for us to fit comfortably for the night, or for days when the weather is just too awful to be outside in. If that sounds like your set-up, please get in touch with our Small Animal Team for an appointment."

Have you spotted a rook on your property?

Community Engagement Advisor from Greater Wellington Regional Council

These large invasive birds are a problem in the Wellington region because they eat and destroy newly germinated seedlings, which sometimes means entire crops need to be re-sown.

We need to protect our region’s environment and economic wellbeing from damage, which is why we aim to remove rooks … View more

An oxymoron has the effect of creating an impression, enhancing a concept, and even entertaining the reader. Can you think of another example of an oxymoron?

Something a bit different this week. Louise Thomas features regularly on Neighbourly but it appears she is not the only bird lover in the family.
"This beautiful drawing was a present from my lovely daughter, Caitlin, for my birthday. It's a portrait of a chap who frequents a large tree at the back of our neighbour's section - it borders our section at the back so he is often peering into our yard - this is the view we normally have of him. I've always valued the handcrafted gifts my children give me - looking at them in chronological order is like viewing the ascent of man. This one's going straight to the trophy room. Kererū/wood pigeon (Hemiphaga novaeseelandiae)."

Hi Everyone,

Ethos energy has a passion for kids and their future . Some schools in the Wellington region are in appalling condition and in most cases the schools are powerless to make improvements as resources are based off yearly budgets or there is no funding available at all leaving schools to be run down and very energy hungry.

The simple question for me is: 'How do we expect the next generation to be inspired to be the next leaders and entrepreneurs of this country when they are surrounded by technology from the 70's?'

A recently published research paper on schools in NZ stated that lighting, Heating and Cooling was in the top 5 issues, teachers have in the classrooms.

Our goal is to change this and to do that we need to carry out our own research on schools. We are currently looking for 5 schools in the wellington region to carry out energy assessments for lighting, heating, cooling and general ventilations.
From this research Ethos Energy will develop a system of support which would include Finance solutions, Installation and foreseeable maintenance, which we hope to rollout across all schools who need basic things as heating, cooling and Lighting.

So If this something your school would like to be a part of please get in touch with James

Hi Neighbors,

Ethos Energy is proud to be leading the way in fresh air ventilation for domestic, commercial and education facilities using Mitsubishi Electric Balanced Pressure Lossnay Heat Recovery Ventilation Systems.

The 4 Functions of the Lossnay Core

The Balanced Pressure Lossnay Heat Recovery Ventilation System removes stale, dirty air and draws in fresh air from outside. Lossnay also recovers heat energy from the air being transferred to pre-warm (or pre-cool) the fresh air being drawn into your home. Lossnay is ideal for small to large sized homes between 52m2 and 400m2.

The stale air extracted from your home is Return Air (RA). Return Air can contain high levels of CO2, odours and other pollutants. This Return Air stream also contains heat energy that Lossnay can recover, which is not the case with positive pressure ventilation systems.

As the stale Return Air is removed, the Lossnay Core ‘recovers’ the useful heat energy from it. The air is then exhausted (EA) outside along with the unwanted pollutants.

Outdoor Air (OA) is introduced to provide fresh air. It is first filtered, then passed through the Lossnay Core. This allows it be pre-heated in winter (or pre-cooled in summer) using the energy recovered from the Return Air.

Supply Air (SA) then enters your house as fresh pre-heated or pre-cooled air.
