What do you do when you can't design buildings?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Best known for his controversial 1973 Park Mews complex in Wellington, Roger Walker has returned to painting to get his architecture fix during lockdown.

With a hint of the playful, whimsical art of Disney's Mary Blair, Walker's paintings hark back to his award-winning building block design style. I love Rog's work.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
