The Panel with Andrew Clay and Jennie Moreton (Part 2)

From The Panel, 4:05 pm on 27 July 2018

This Saturday some Kiwis will be able to witness a rare celestial event, a selenelion. A selenelion is when the sun and an eclipsed Moon are in the sky at the same time - what could be a once-in-a-lifetime event. It's caused by the refraction of light caused by our atmosphere. We discuss why some people get excited at the possibilities events like this can have on our lives. What the panelists Andrew Clay and Jennie Moreton want to talk about. Sir Bob Harvey has called the resident who live around Eden Park "cry-babies" after a planned concert there was scrapped due to opposition. Locals voiced their concerns about the charity concert which led to its cancelling. It was reported the cost of obtaining a resource consent to hold the concert at Eden Park was upwards of $750,000. We ask the panelists if this is seems to be a quite a huge number. Researchers have found tow thirds of dairy owners or managers interviews perceived tobacco to be important to their business. The survey was looking into how the country could reach its smoke free 2025 target. A former dairy owner and vice president of the Crime Prevention Group, Ash Darji, tells us why owners are reluctant to stop selling cigarettes. Singer Demi Lovato is recovering from a drug overdose, with friedns saying she had been "partying" a lot recently. We ask whether the use of the word "partying" is wrong to use when it coms to drug taking as it may be normalising the destructive behaviour. Meanwhile, more than 100,000 people have signed a petition to cancel a new show on Netflix that has been dubbed "fat-shaming". Insatiable follows a teenage girl who is bullied because of her weight, but exacts her revenge when she her jaw is wired shut and see loses weight. Plus we touch on stories about Tom Cruise and TV show Love Island.
