1:20 Remember: No Dogs Allowed

A predator control operator up North is calling on locals and visitors to stop ignoring No Dogs signs at Matapouri's Whale Bay. 

The volunteer Kiwicoast group has set up a dog-free reserve to help native wildlife, including kiwi, to flourish. 

But Jarrid Plows says the no dogs message isn't being heard, and it's a problem for many of New Zealand's protected bushes.

3:10 Who Can You Trust?

Trust is defined as a  confident relationship with the unknown, which might also be the perfect definition for  almost every interaction we have online.

The internet is changing trust in fundamental ways says Rachel Botsman, a scholar at Oxford's Saïd Business School. We are willing to let complete strangers drive us around town and stay in our flats.

We trust strangers but we don't trust institutions, politicians or the media. 

Rachel Botsman explains this seismic shift in her new book,  Who Can You Trust? How Technology Brought Us Together - and Why It Could Drive Us Apart.
