09:30 Should the HPV vaccine for cervical cancer be free for boys too? - Dr Nikki Turner
Two HPV vaccines haves been recommended for girls in the US for nearly 10 years which includes Gardisil which is the vaccine available here. It protects against human papillomavirus (HPV), the virus that causes most cases of cervical cancer, and Gardasil also protects against nearly all cases of genital warts. The vaccine also helps to protect against less common cancers, such as vaginal and other genital cancers and some mouth and throat cancers that are caused by HPV infection.
The HPV vaccination programme began in New Zealand in 2008, initially through General Practices and since 2009, largely through schools at year 8 (age 12). Young women up to the age of 20 can also get the free three dose vaccine from their family doctor or practice nurse.
Australia offers the vaccine free for boys, but that's not the case here. The Ministry of Health's HPV coverage target for girls aged 12 years is 70 percent for dose one of the vaccine, 65 percent for dose two and 60 percent for completing all three doses. The coverage rate of all girls born in 2000 is 54 percent completing all three doses. Pacific Island girls have higher coverage at 69 percent of all three doses. Maori girls have coverage of 60 percent of all three doses.

10:05 What "good" psychopaths can teach us about suceeding in life
Dr. Kevin Dutton, an Oxford University psychology professor, has spent a lifetime studying psychopaths. He first met SAS hero and author Andy McNab during a research project. What he found surprised him. McNab is a diagnosed psychopath but he is what Dr. Dutton calls a "good psychopath". Unlike a "bad psychopath", he is able to dial up or down qualities such as ruthlessness, fearlessness, conscience and empathy to get the very best out of himself – and others – in a wide range of situations. Together, they have written the book The Good Psychopath's Guide to Success, which is out now, published by Random House, RRP $37.99. Take the psychopath test.
