New Zealand's first 'no sugary drinks logo' has just been released, and it will be available for display in schools, businesses, workplaces, public spaces and event venues. It's similar to the 'smokefree' logo, designed to remind people of their health and well-being, and send a clear message about the damage caused by too much sugar in our diets. The logo has been launched at the third symposium being held by health advocacy group FIZZ in Wellington today.Auckland University marketing lecturer, Dr Bodo Lang, is a member of FIZZ and he designed the logo.

1.25 The Science of Identity

It's the science of identity, and how we define who we are. But how do we do this? Is it through blood, DNA, whakapapa, or our cultural environment? Auckland Libraries and the University of Auckland, with the support of the Royal Society of NZ, are today running a free public event on identity and how we define it. Dr Carla Houkamau is a senior lecturer at the University of Auckland and Brad Argent, a family historian and spokesperson for Ancestry, will be speaking at the event today.
