A new report says if nothing is done to address the domestic violence, the financial and economic burden will grow more than ten-fold, to nearly 80 billion dollars in a decade.

The study's been commissioned by the Glenn Inquiry, which is looking into the problem of child abuse and domestic violence, which results in an average of 12 deaths a year in this country.

The lead author on the project is the economist, Suzanne Snively.

10:05 Versatile athlete Melanie Burke, back from Ironman world champs

Melanie Burke is one of the country's most versatile athletes – she is an accomplished professional athlete with forays into running, duathlons, rowing, cycling and of late Ironman competitions. She grew up in Wanganui - a fairly typical Kiwi childhood, and she now lives and works in Auckland and does a fair bit of travelling abroad to events.

Her commitment to sport and training takes up a lot of the 34 year old's time, but Melanie says fortunately her employers are flexible - and she's able to attend overseas endurance meets. She has recently returned from her first professional Ironman champs in Kona, Hawaii, last month (October).

11:30 The Monday Morning Cooking Club

In Sydney in 2006, Lisa Goldberg was one of a group of Jewish women  who began meeting every Monday morning. They cooked, ate, drank endless cups of tea and discussed the merits of different recipes, some handed down through the generations. After just a few weekly meetings, the Monday Morning Cooking Club was born. Hundreds of dishes later, six members of the sisterhood handpicked their favourite recipes to contribute to their second book Monday Morning Cooking Club - the Feast Goes On. Lisa Goldberg is one of the authors and will run through some time honoured recipes with Kathryn and tell the story behind the dishes.

Book: Monday Morning Cooking Club - The Feast Goes On

Recipes - Salmon pastrami, Aunty Myrna's cabbage rolls and Kranzkuchen.
