When does NZ move to the 'traffic light system'?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hundreds of thousands of Kiwis who do not yet have both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine face a tightening of their freedoms on December 3, when the Government moves the entire country into the new “traffic-light” system.

Hundreds of thousands of Kiwis who do not yet have both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine face a tightening of their freedoms on December 3, when the Government moves the entire country into the new “traffic-light” system.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the date on Monday, saying Covid-19 was not going to be eradicated from New Zealand.

“The hard truth is that Delta is here and not going away,” Ardern said.

While Aucklanders will finally see an end to New Zealand’s longest lockdown, those in other parts of the country could face far more restrictions if they have not been fully-vaccinated.

"My paintings are of moments that have caught my attention... They are little flashes of memory and image. Introspection, for me, is a going inwards. That is now partly triggered by reflecting on my illness (cancer) without it “knocking me down.”" - Beth Hudson

"In this instance the painting (in this exhibition) takes on a life of its own, going beyond the chalked outline of a hand, converting it into something rich and vibrant." - Fran Marno

"My partner is writing a book... based on a chess board with 2 Queens on the board... Hence, I am working with canvas squares like a chess board with imagery of mine and my partner’s scarves, which represent our bodies." - Sue Marshall

"I was drawn to the shape and material of the fishing weights; they look like water droplets and they have been hot and molten and are now cold and set. It got me thinking of memories, embarrassing, passionate, sad and happy ones..." - Cath Head

Make sure to check in for the final week of PulseArt "Over my Shoulder" exhibition featuring 4 artists from this Auckland based lesbian group formed in 1999.

Exhibition ends 30 November.

Current gallery hours are:
Tuesday - Friday 10am-3:30pm
Saturday 11am-3pm

Kia ora neighbours,

A new poll released by the Hauraki Gulf Forum has found there is overwhelming public support for more measures to protect and restore the Hauraki Gulf/Tīkapa Moana.

Of over 1000 respondents, 81% said they love and have a very strong attachment to the Gulf, including its beaches, shorelines and islands. The greatest public concerns for the health of the Gulf are plastics (73% of respondents said this had the most negative impact), sewage (72%), chemicals (70%), and commercial fishing (63%).

Methods proposed to protect the Gulf include planting all waterways, re-establishing lost shellfish-beds and reefs, and banning fishing methods such as dredging and bottom-trawling that damage the sea-floor. 84% of respondents supported these actions, with less than 3% in opposition.

Do you love being in/around the Gulf, and do you think it should be protected? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the North Shore Times.

Skippy, where the bloody hell are ya?

Not at Long Bay Regional Park, apparently.

A suspected wallaby has kept Auckland Council busy since a park volunteer claimed to have spotted it in April.

But trail cameras and a wallaby detector dog have been unsuccessful in detecting the wallaby, while scat samples collected for analysis ended up belonging to a possum.

As night fell on Wednesday, a team of forest survey specialists took to the sky with a thermal and night vision drone, in a final attempt to prove or rule out the wallaby’s existence entirely.

Mission Bay water fountain to be switched back on

Mission Bay’s Memorial Fountain will be switched back on this weekend after 19 months as water restrictions in Auckland are lifted.

But Auckland Council is reminding people not to splash about in the fountain, which is a memorial for the nephew of late Auckland mayor Sir Ernest Davis.

“We are very fortunate to have this stunning memorial located on our waterfront,” Ōrākei Local Board chair Scott Milne said.

“That we are now able to turn it on again is great news, and something we are sure many will be pleased to learn because the fountain really is an attraction that visitors from all over the city come to see.”

The fountain was built in 1947 as a memorial to Trevor Moss Davis, the nephew of late Auckland mayor Sir Ernest Davis.

Ōrākei Local Board chair Scott Milne said visitors need to be considerate when heading to Selwyn Reserve.

“It I s also a good opportunity to remind people that we need to be mindful and respectful of the fact that it is a memorial, and not a splash pad or paddling pool,” he said.

The fountain was turned off in February 2020 as Auckland entered a drought.

It was turned on briefly in March for the America’s Cup finals, but has mostly been empty for the past 19 months.

Used car prices are on the rise!

I bought Bluey last year September on my return from Europe just for a few months to run around before I leave NZ again.
The few months turned into 14 months but I’m selling as leaving again.

My criteria was to find a cheap car that drives well, has no warning lights on and looks good in the price range inside and out. (Few little scratches/tiny bent-age related, see pictures)

I looked at many but all had warning lights on and / or looking awful in the inside.
Then I finally found Bluey.

Purchased him from a lovely asian couple that also took great care of him. They sold as they were also leaving NZ.

In this 14 months period since I had it, he has been absolutely wonderful to me.

The only issue I had with him was the two headlights on both sides went out, but the mechanic put in new bulbs and they’re all good since.

Warrant of Fitness and Rego will expire in more than 6 months time sometime mid next year.

He had a service about 2-3 months ago.
Also oil been topped up a months back.

My car before that was $25K more, yet I prefer driving Bluey.

My car friends importer friends are telling me that used car prices are on the rise.

Get Bluey today for a great price and you might even make money on him.

I’m a non-smoker, non-racer female driver.

Price negotiable.

My all times favourite fitness machine as a holistic personal trainer and qualified Power Plate Instructor

Power Plate is Certified M.E.D.I.C.A.L device!
Used in hospitals & physio theraphy places!

Absolutely misunderstood fact that You just stand on it! No! You exercise on it to get the result.

Built on space technology: A new treatment under study by NASA-funded doctors could reverse bone loss experienced by astronauts in space by using vibrational machines.

Thanks to the acceleration, it also speeds up your result:
to loose fat
build muscle
achieve flexibility
reduce cellulite
increase bone density in a FUN way!

You can combine using it with weights, stretchy bands, Pilates ring, even TRX etc.

I taught Step Aerobics classes and Circuit Training on Power Plates for 20-50 year olds

My 80 year old client loved it as it helped her to not only reduce her dress size but reduced her cellulite

My athletes loved it as it’s much harder to train with it then with weights only and the muscles got tired faster, which resulted in faster results

My 40+ year olds loved it for general fitness purposes and increased flexibility much faster then going to yoga

I love using these machines for 14 years as it’s a fun and time efficient way to exercise.

Well loved and well looked after.

Comes with a FREE shock and noise absorber. RRP $890

Works perfectly!
An incredible investment in your well-being you’ll be pleased you’ve made.
