Thirty years since its last makeover, Te Aroha's historic and prized Coulter Bridge is finally getting a paint job, thanks to a band of local volunteers helmed by Matamata Piako mayor Ash Tanner. Coulter Bridge in Te Aroha was built in 1928 and named after Robert Coulter, a former mayor of Te Aroha for 20 years. It spans the Waihou River and connects thousands of vehicles each day to the Waikato and Coromandel.

Waka Kotahi has issued a statement to Waikato drivers everywhere: Avoid non-essential driving today if you want to avoid the potholes. This is because severe weather has made it hard for contractors to clear up any new potholes that may have formed, as they are occupied with fixing the slips.  Dylan Thompson, AA Road Safety Spokesperson is here to explain what's going on with the Waikato weather and why fixing the potholes is a consistent issue. "It's more the fact that we haven't been putting enough investment into the road maintenance budget for quite some time, and then we end up with potholes as a symptom of that."

Otro Rally legendario que vuelve a Campeonato, en este caso la prueba de Nueva Zelanda. Por eso desde el Podcast Técnica Fórmula 1 se le va a hacer una merecida y extensa previa, con todos los detalles, pues desde el 2012 no teníamos esta prueba en el calendario. ¿Cómo son estas pistas? Las pistas por las que se abre paso el Rally de Nueva Zelanda son rápidas y fluidas, de tierra y con curvas peraltadas. Discurren a través de los bosques y a lo largo de la costa neozelandesa, dejándonos imágenes de postal. Esos tramos, elegidos por los equipos como el Rally del año 2001, son un sueño para los pilotos. La prueba arrancará el jueves por la tarde con una ceremonia de salida en Pukekawa Auckland Domain, seguida por un tramo superespecial dentro del parque de la ciudad. El viernes tendremos una dura jornada, incluyendo tramos clásicos en la Costa de Whaanga y en las pistas de la región de Waikato, cerca de Te Akau. El sábado, la acción se desplaza al norte de la base del Rally (Auckland), para una doble pasada por Kaipara Hills, Puhoi, Komokoriki y el regreso a Auckland. El final del domingo comprende un tramo en Whitford Forest Te Maraunga Waiho y el tramo expresamente diseñado para el Rally “Jack’s Ridge”. Ambos se disputarán dos veces y el segundo Jacks Ridge será el Power Stage. Algunos datos a tener en cuenta. Aparte de que los equipos que abran el Rally irán limpiando la superficie de arena suelta para los demás, también hay que tener en cuenta que el reconocimiento previo será crucial, pues varios pilotos actuales nunca han disputado una prueba aquí. Además será importante evitar problemas mecánicos, pues la primera etapa (que comprende más de al mitad de la distancia competitiva del Rally) será sin asistencia, tan sólo habrá una zona de montaje de neumáticos en Raglan. Eso quiere decir que cualquier problema con el coche será severamente castigado. Para los espectadores europeos, la hora para seguir la prueba en directo será algo incómoda. Concretamente, en España, la prueba del jueves comienza a las 7 de la mañana del jueves. Y la primera del viernes, a las 8:33 hora local, la podremos ver a las 21:33 en España. Es decir, que el que quiera ver el Power Stage, tendrá que madrugar el domingo, pues en directo se emitirá a las 4:00h. Cómo llegan los pilotos y los equipos a Nueva Zelanda. El Rally de Nueva Zelanda es el antepenúltimo de la temporada, así que aquí pilotos y equipos se lo están jugando todo ya. ¿Será campeón Rovanperä ya en Nueva Zelanda o se mantendrá la emoción? En cualquier caso, aunque aún no hay nada decidido, la ventaja, tanto de Rovanperä sobre Tänak y Neuville, como de Toyota sobre Hyundai es grande. Además, después de que las 3 últimas pruebas se las haya llevado Hyundai, está claro que en Toyota estarán deseando resarcirse. El equipo japonés ha confirmado ya su alineación para 2023, temporada en la que seguirán contando con Rovanperä, Evans y Katsuta, con la duda de si Ogier hará algún rally el año próximo. Ogier, concretamente, se sube al Toyota en esta prueba, para lo que el equipo ha tenido que bajar del auto a Lappi. ¿Están preparado ya algo para el año próximo o sólo compensando al piloto que tantos títulos les ha dado? Por su parte, M-Sport ha eliminado la inscripción de Fourmaux para este rally, después de los daños que tuvo su coche en el Rally de Ypres. Y en Hyundai las cosas no andan mucho mejor: Tänak no se corta al hablar de su escuadra, que le hizo ceder ante Neuville, cuando el estonio era más rápido, en la última prueba ¿está Tänak ya fuera del equipo? Todas estas dudas, despejadas en la madrugada del domingo. Escucha el episodio completo en la app de iVoox, o descubre todo el catálogo de iVoox Originals

When Phillip John Smith left a Waikato prison on approved temporary leave in 2014 no one suspected that within days he would be leading authorities on an international man hunt. Smith, also known as Phillip John Traynor, was meant to spend his time outside the wire at an address in Auckland with a sponsor. The leave was part of a plan to reintegrate the convicted killer and sex offender back into the community. But instead of going to the address in Auckland he made his way to the airport and boarded a plane to South America. Smith's plan was to never return to New Zealand.  However a chance sighting lead authorities right to him at a backpackers in Brazil. Smith  was jailed for life for murdering the father of a young boy he'd been convicted of sexually abusing. So how did he get a passport? How did he get past border authorities? And how was he captured in the heart of one of the busiest cities in the world?

Tracey Dixon-Neale is a 43-year-old Mum of 4 living in the small farming community of Onewhero in the Waikato region of the North Island of New Zealand. As an 11-year-old girl Tracey was sexually assaulted by a family friend which was prolonged by a yearlong court case. In the following years her stepmother left her and her father, she dropped out of high school and eventually moved in with her mother. As her weight started to climb her mother suggested trying the diet pill Duromine. After some time on diet pills, Tracey was offered Speed and Methamphetamine. This eventually spiraled out of control and led to a crippling addiction which spanned over the course of a few years. With the love and support of her now husband Tracey got clean and has remained clean for over 19 years. Shortly after getting back on track Tracey became pregnant with her first child. Two weeks after finding out she was pregnant her father was diagnosed with terminal Cancer. After nursing her father and best friend through his illness and following his death her weight started to climb again. After two more children, enduring the loss of two babies and welcoming her fourth and final child, Tracey's weight was at an all-time high of 115kgs. (253 pounds) At a Doctor's appointment her general practitioner suggested she try Intermittent Fasting. She went home, googled Intermittent Fasting and started that night. In the two and a half years since then she has not missed a single fast and so far, has managed to lose over 43kg. (95 pounds) Tracey has gone from having a self-proclaimed 'allergy to exercise' to joining the gym as a reward for losing her first 40kg. She now enjoys daily cardio on the cross trainer/elliptical machine and daily weight/strength training. She is also a moderator on The Fasting Highway. Tracey's relationship with food has completely changed over the past two and a half years although she still remains a passionate Cook and Baker. She is focused and determined that she will happily remain a Faster for the rest of her life and help educate as many people as she can along the way. The Fasting Highway News.

In this episode I welcome on the esteemed exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist Stacy Sims, PhD. My patients have been hearing me talk about her for years when I first started recommending her book ROAR. And, now with so many women struggling with their metabolism during their 40's and 50's , I asked her to come on and speak about her new book Next Level: Your guide to Kicking Ass, Feeling Great, and Crushing Goals Through Menopause and Beyond. There are not many people who have left me speechless during my podcast and Dr. Sims did. Her explanation of the importance of estrogen, protein, nutrient timing, specific training stimuli, and overall resilience was precise , poignant, and actionable. I am sure you are going to enjoy this episode and feel more equipped to understand what the heck is happening to your body as you age. About our Guest STACY T. SIMS, MSC, PHD, is a forward-thinking international exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist who aims to revolutionize exercise nutrition and performance for women. She has directed research programs at Stanford, AUT University, and the University of Waikato, focusing on female athlete health and performance and pushing the dogma to improve research on all women. With the unique opportunities, Silicon Valley has to offer, during her tenure at Stanford, she had the opportunity to translate earlier research into consumer products and a science-based layperson's book (ROAR)written to explain sex differences in training and nutrition across the lifespan. Both the consumer products and the book challenged the existing dogma for women in exercise, nutrition, and health. This paradigm shift is the focus of her famous "Women Are Not Small Men TEDx talk .Her contributions to the international research environment and the sports nutrition industry has established a new niche in sports nutrition; and established her reputation as the expert in sex differences in training, nutrition, and health. As a direct result, she has been named:One of the top 50 visionaries of the running industry (2015) by DMSE Sports.One of the top 40 women changing the paradigm of her field (2017)by Outside Magazine.

Ata and I discuss with Dave some of his intellectual background that seeks to respond to community needs, as well as some of his research interests with intergenerationality, education, and developing critical depth in the terms and concepts we use. Dave shares the positive and important aspects of intergenerational relationships that can alleviate tensions and provide worthwhile wisdom and practices that provide grounded pathways for future generations. We discuss challenges in dominant institutions of schooling as well as their legacies, and the significance of education. We consider Epeli Hau‘ofa's scholarship and the importance of engaging with messy intellectual terrains, facing a greater complexity that requires multiple lenses, while also upholding Indigenous relational ethics, which are also critically confronting external and internal power dynamics.   Terms: Hohoko 'a e To'utangata (inter-generationality, intergenerational and genealogical consciousness); Loto Tonga (in Tonga, the center of Tonga, term that refers to Tongans positioned in the Kingdom of Tonga); Tu'a Tonga (outside of Tonga, the periphery of Tonga, term that refers to Tongans positioned outside of the Kingdom of Tonga in NZ, AUS, US, etc.); Mokopuna (grandchild); Tauhi Vā/Tauhi Vaha‘a (Mediating relationships, upholding kinship/clan and socio-spatial points of relation); Mamahi‘i Me‘a (passion and devotion – both Tauhi Vā and Mamahi‘i Me‘a are among the Faa‘i kaveikoula ‘a e Tonga or Four golden pillars of Tongan culture and society as emphasized by HRH Queen Sālote Tupou III); ‘Eiki Mokopuna (chiefly grandchild or chiefly grandchildren, a unique intergenerational relationship); Tapu (protections, restrictions, commonly considered as ‘sacred-ness'); Ha‘a (lineage, clan); Vā (relation, point between/of relation/connection); Mānava (to breathe, give life); Manava (womb); Mana (potency, honour, prestige); Whakapapa (platformed layers of connection, origin, genealogy); Si‘ota‘aki (harmful criticism, harmfully taking apart another's views or stories); Si‘o (to see or perspective); Ta‘aki (to unpack or take apart); Si‘o-Ta‘aki (reconceptualized as “to deconstruct perspectives, reveal underlying causes, and change understandings”); Post-humanism (a field of studies that looks beyond the human or anthropocentrism/humancentrism, may also confront the assumed universals or presumed hierarchy of humanity and/or the concept of the human); Hoa (partner/companion in both lea faka-Tonga and te reo Māori), Hoa-Haere (close friend, partner, or comrade in te reo Māori), Hoariri (enemy/antagonist in te reo Māori, comprised of partner/companion and anger, sometimes interpreted as angry friend).
