Are you aged between 55 and 65 and interested in shaping the future of digital identity in New Zealand? Would you have half an hour to spare on Thursday 11 October or Friday 12 October 2018 to come and meet with us in Wellington?
We are a design team working across government on solutions to keep customers in the digital space when applying for NZ Super. We are keen to test out our ideas with you. As a thank you for your time and input we will give you a supermarket voucher.
We will need you to come to:
Lightning Lab GovTech
Level 4 of the Credenza Building
40 Taranaki Street, Wellington
We will run through some of the options that we are exploring, hear your opinion and find out what your preferences are.
If you would like to meet with us please send an email to the team at supersmoothDI@gmail.com - We will be in touch to arrange a convenient time to come in. Alternatively if you would still like to meet with us but can't attend on either of these days, we would still like to hear from you.
Wellington City Council is moving to eventually gte rid of pokie machines in the city.
Barring any last-minute changes of heart, a Wellington City Council committee will agree to the policy, meaning all existing pokie machine venues can keep operating, but no new permits will be issued and, over time, this will theoretically lead to fewer gambling machines.
The "sinking lid policy" is being driven by Cr Tabatha Paul.
If the eventual drop-off in pokie machines led to community groups getting less funding, Paul said it would be time for the central government to step in.

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.
The owners of popular eatery Monsoon Poon have no plans to change the restaurant’s name, widely interpreted as a reference to female genitalia.
Monsoon Poon’s owners Nicola Richards and Mike Egan (pictured), say there was never any intention for the restaurant’s name to be taken as a derogatory or racist term.
Richards said “at no point” had that been the intention, and it was not how the word was interpreted by the business owners.
“You will find that Poon is a very common Chinese and Korean surname, and we simply thought it worked well with the word ‘monsoon’,” she said.
