It's been a lot of fun doing that show but I'm really excited about starting the new job. ABIGAIL DOUGHERTY/STUFF Rachel Ashby is the new host for Auckland radio station 95bFM's breakfast show. I think some people beyond Christchurch don't fully understand that Christchurch is not a recovered city, it is a city in the process of recovery and that recovery is not linear. I think it's the role of pākehā to really listen, and really step up and not be passive anymore. I'm usually doing quite a lot of things at once, so I'm quite looking forward to a chance to potter.

The Highlanders had some good fortune, with their 36 points good enough to take eighth spot, and book a trip to play the Crusaders next weekend. Photo: Getty ImagesThe Super Rugby quarter-finals have been set after a dramatic final morning that saw the Highlanders sneak into the final spot after other results went their way. They had the Bulls to thank, who denied the Lions a bonus point, leaving the Lions - who finished runner-up the last three seasons - out of the playoffs. One point would have been enough for the Lions to steal eighth spot from the Highlanders. A trip to play the Brumbies is the Sharks' reward, while the Chiefs will visit the Jaguares in Argentina.

If you've got the tramping bug, the Kepler Track is right across the lake and so is a glow-worm cave.

Lake Horowhenua - once pristine, now one of the most polluted rivers in New Zealand. So news that two Hollywood heavy weights - Titanic director James Cameron and Hobbit maker Peter Jackson - are teaming up to promote a meat-less New Zealand will cause ripples, here and internationally. Brand New Zealand is overdue for a shake up from from the bucolic images of cows and sheep grazing on clean green pastures that have sustained our agriculture exports for so long. But we all know - from the rivers that are un-swimmable, and the water that is undrinkable - that clean, green New Zealand is falling a long way short. That means confronting the difficult truth about agriculture in New Zealand - and accepting that it is time is innovate or die.

Powerlifting has been unearthing superhuman talent as an official Paralympic sport since the mid-1980s, where competitors perform unthinkable feats with kilograms by the hundreds. Ryan Pierse/Getty Powerlifting has been unearthing superhuman talent as an official Paralympic sport since the mid-1980s. My powerlifting score would be the overall sum of the squat, bench press and deadlift. RISK RATINGNeedless to say, you shouldn't perform powerlifting if you suffer or have suffered from joint, back or heart problems. The sport can be taxing on the body, so you should always practise with a knowledgeable powerlifting trainer.
Two amateur Kiwi scriptwriters have secured the rights to the stage version of the hit film Blues Brothers after talks with Hollywood bigwigs Dan Ackroyd and the late John Belushi's widow. The 1980 blockbuster earned rave reviews and featured an all-star Hollywood line up of Ackroyd, Belushi, Carrie Fisher, Aretha Franklin, John Candy and Ray Charles. "We set out to put on a Blues Brothers movie adaptation but we were told we had to write our own one, so we did," Lockhart said. That led to discussions with Aykroyd and Judith Belushi, who own the intellectual property for the name 'Blues Brothers' and the characters. "Every Blues Brothers story has the same formula," Lockhart said.
The expiration of her Scottish girlfriend Melissa's two-year working holiday visa only provided more motive to seek a better life elsewhere. "We decided on Australia, more specifically Melbourne, because many of our friends had raved about it being "Wellington on steroids" with better wages and more of a big city feel." GRACE HOWARD The couple travelled the Great Ocean Rd on the cheap by installing a mattress in their rental van. The longer Howard spends in Melbourne, the more it grows on her. My living conditions and wages are substantially better in Melbourne but I'm not on board with the nationalist attitudes and the colonial centric-mindsets here.
TVNZ Friends' "warm, cosy" humour is a comfort in these troubled times, believes the show's co-creator Marta Kauffman. I'll say something like, 'Oh that's like when Joey did this', and my friends look at me like I'm crazy." As demand for comfort viewing increases, shows like Friends and The Office are becoming major players as streaming services diversify. In America, Parks and Recreation, Friends and The Office are all available on Netflix. But if she can't watch Friends on TVNZ OnDemand anymore, she's got a fallback option – her DVD box sets.
