It's a talent only a few of us have, and now the hunt is on to find Aotearoa's best group of a cappella singers.
The Naked Choir starts this Sunday night on TVNZ 1, and host Jeff Hunkin came into to tell us what it takes to be the best.
What does it take to be NZ's best a cappella group?

You may be surprised to learn that New Zealand, the US and UK all have a 90 per cent abortion rate for Down Syndrome fetus'.
A new documentary series produced by Attitude TV is tackling the big questions around the condition, called What's Up with Down Syndrome.

I think until you are personally faced with this situation, you are in no position to judge. DS children can grow to lead semi/independent lives, others cannot and require life long care, parents of these people grow old and die, then what happens to them? What about the effect of the other children in the family? All questions you have to ask yourself and it's a very hard thing to go through.
04/28/2017 at 08:33
I don't think it's about shaming people it's about changing people's out dated negative perceptions regarding people with ds. With education and support they are achieving so much more than people realise... Than we realised. when our daughter was diagnosed we were scared . she is blowing away our preconceived ideas every day :)
04/28/2017 at 01:59
People with Down syndrome are beautiful people. There needs to be way more education and awareness especially from the medical fraternity, who advocates the abortion choice. There is support for parents out there if they choose to take it, associations they can turn to and people with Down syndrome can live wonderful lives given the chance. I am a grandmother of a four year old with Down syndrome and I just love him to bits.

Age is just a number... right? So why do people criticise others for being in relationships with large age gaps?
Our relationship guru tells us why it generates so much intrigue and gossip.

My Aunty met her 2nd husband in the late 70s when she was 40 and he was 18. They loved each other very much and did everything together. They lasted 30 years until he passed away at the age of 58 9 years ago. My aunty who is now 85 is still alive and kicking, So age really is a number, For years, people used to make them feel arkward about their age gap, but they didn't care because they loved each other so much

French politician Emmanuel Macron is 25 years younger than his wife, Brigitte.
But that’s the same age difference as Donald J. Trump and Melania Trump, which has lead to far fewer headlines. Is it a double standard?

It's got nothing to do with anyone else but the people involved. There shouldn't be an "acceptable age gap". Whether it's 2 years or 22 years- as long as both parties are happy and it's a legal age then who really cares! It's a bit ridiculous that there was even a discussion made about it!
04/27/2017 at 18:49
There is no acceptable age difference - the word "acceptable" is not necessary. What matters in a relationship is love, trust, affection - all the good things that makes one happy!
04/27/2017 at 19:10
I have no problem with the age difference, it's the fact that he was 17 , she was not only 24 years older but his teacher. Now that I find hard to except.

04/27/2017 at 05:59
Not surprised. Rtd's are aimed at that market. Lolly water. Stop the sale of the crap and watch the statistics change fast.
But who cares, girls are allowed to drink as much as boys if they want. They might regret the rtd's when they hit 30 and have put on 30kilos more than they want.

Don't these girls have any self respect,all so care about their bodies ? All that alcohol will cause all sorts of problems if not now ,later on in life.liver, kidneys, and the brain to name a few , that will slowly be damage plus

Read the article in Stuff today about negotiating your way to get to an appointment at WINZ and then tell me where those on the wrong side of the digital divide, without home internet, should go if not to their local library. We assist so many people at the one I work in and some areas in our town have only about 54% of popn with internet access.

Libraries are brilliant. I walk past Auckland Library often and it's always busy, ppl waiting for it to open. You see ppl chatting while waiting and watching others walk past and most say "Hi". I've not been in a long time, but seeing this and free book Thursday trolley outside, it's a community MUST HAVE.

The Herald's figures were rubbish because they counted everyone getting off a flight from Australia as "Australian", even if they were a citizen of another country.
The National Business Review has accurate figures. In short: Chinese and Indian students comprise the biggest groups of immigrants. How one feels about that will differ, but any debate is better informed by the truth, not the Herald's propaganda.

I often go to the Auckland Central library right as it is opening and there is a queue waiting to get through the doors. Libraries ensure people who can't afford books have access to them and also provide programmes during school holidays. The computers there are also always heavily used. Not everyone can afford kindles, the Internet or books from a bookstore, but the people making these decisions obviously can!
04/26/2017 at 19:19
Everyone saying they haven't been to a library in years and therefore they aren't relevant are surely not qualified to make that call - if you haven't been, you haven't seen how many people are still using them! Every time I've been into 2 local libraries, they have been packed!
04/26/2017 at 19:21
I recently took my 2 year old daughter to a 'wriggle & rhyme' children's session (singing along to nursery rhymes) at the library in Browns Bay - you couldn't move for all the kids, parents, grandparents (and prams!). It was crazy! Having publicly funded libraries is an essential step to getting kids interested in books & reading.
