1.15 Plan to Revamp Karangahape Road

Proposed changes to Auckland's iconic Karangahape Road have been released this morning.

It's one of New Zealand's most colourful strips, but what does the future look like, for the Central Auckland hub?

Public feedback on the changes is open until 20 November 2016.

Journalist, Russell Brown, has been looking at the proposal released by Auckland Transport and Auckland Transport.

1:25 Being a Gay Christian

Craig Watson grew up in a conservative baptist church where homosexuality was viewed as an evil in a person that must be got rid of.

For years he tried to pray away his own sexuality - and went as far as going overseas to find a counsellor to help him "get the gay away"

It wasn't until three years ago, when he was 31 that he began to rethink his attitude to himself.. and met a pastor who embraced and accepted gay people.

His mission now is to help young gay Christians realise they don't have to choose between religion and their sexuality - and has organised the Awaken conference in Auckland which will take place over Labour weekend.

2:25 Why Tuatara are so unique

Tuatara expert Nicky Nelson of Victoria University has everything you need to know about one of the world's most unique animals.

Tuatara are in an order of their own, one of four types of reptile. They are not dinosaurs as some have suggested, but date back 230 million years.

3:10 Bernie Roth: Life by Design

Life lessons don't often come from the engineering department at prestigious universities like Stanford. But for more than 40 years mechanical engineer Professor Bernie Roth has been teaching a class about applying design concepts to life.  

He says the  same concepts  engineers use to design buildings or irrigation projects can be used to lose weight,   achieve work/life balance or just about any problem life throws at us.  

His class "The Designer in Society", is one of the most popular at Stanford University.
