2:10 Kiwi Help in Haiti - Roger Wilson - In January 2010, a magnitude 7 earthquake devastated the Carribbean Republic of Haiti, killing hundreds of thousands of people, and displacing millions more. Three and a half years later, and much of Haiti is still under rubble, as the country-one of the poorest nations in the world-struggles to recover from the catastrophe. But the rebuild in Haiti, though slow, has started.
And there's a group of New Zealanders who've been adding their efforts to it, as part of a project that grew out of one Nelson family's tragic loss in January 2010.
This is the foundation that organised the trip. It was set up by a Nelson woman who lost her husband and two little girls in the Haiti earthquake of 2010 http://www.kenbelafoundation.org/our-story/
2:20 Cape Palliser Shipwreck - Ken Scadden - A memorial to one of New Zealand's most famous shipwrecks could do with a wash and brush up. The South Wairarapa District Council has been asked to tend to the headstone marking the grave of a dozen sailors who lost their lives when the Zuleika ran aground in Palliser Bay more than a century ago. The ship was on a voyage from Dunedin to Wellington when she struck the rocks near Cape Palliser after being caught in a heavy gale.The wreck was notable for the tragically young age of many of the sailors who died aboard. Ken Scadden is the President of the Maritime Archeological Association, and an archivist who knows the sad story of the Zuleika.
Here's the Auckland Star story from the National Library of New Zealand website - "Terrible Shipwreck"

3:10 Tune Your Engine - Dan McLaughlin - The theory is simply: to master any skill it takes 10-thousand hours of deliberate practice. It's a theory made popular in Malcolm Gladwell's book Outliers. In April 2010, professional photographer Dan McLaughlin decided to put the theory to the test.
He quit his job and committed to spending 6 and a half years of full time practice and hard yacker to play golf well enough to join the PGA Tour. This from a man who had never played 18 holes of golf in his life.
With just over 5 thousand hours to go, he has a single digit handicap. The Dan Plan
