1.15 Major Blow for Clark's UN Bid

A major blow for Helen Clark's bid to become the next secretary general of the UN. A late contender from Bulgaria might be the final nail in the coffin for our former Prime Minister as there's a school of thought that an Eastern European woman would keep a lot of members happy. Kristalina Georgieva has thrown her hat in the ring this morning with the official nomination from her government. She's also a EU budget commissioner and for many who are voting in the contest ticks a number of boxes as a preferred region and gender to take over from Ban Ki-moon. Her nomination comes just days after a poor straw poll for Helen Clark where she slipped to 7th place out of 9 candidates. Mark Leon Goldberg is the Editor of the UN and global affairs blog the UN dispatch also the host of global dispatch's podcast.

1.30 Magpies on the attack in a Timaru Park

Mountain bikers in Timaru are taking more of a risk in a Centennial Park of late with over protective magpies dive bombing the cyclists. The incidents have been happening on a particular track in the park where a magpie mum and dad feel they are getting too close to their nests. It's generally around this time of the year when the magpies get quite feisty and aggressive. Lyn MacDonald from New Zealand Bird rescue has some tips on what to do about the magpie attacks.

3:30 This Way Up

Not too many people go on holiday to Fiji and see a way to change other people's lives for the better. But 17-year-old Finn Ross went fishing there and saw how local people were struggling with old or broken fishing gear and the problems this was causing. So Finn and his mate Max Lichtenstein decided to do something about it. They set up a charity called Let Them Fish that's collecting hundreds of second-hand reels and rods, kilometres of fishing line, and lots of diving stuff here in New Zealand and sends it off to people who need it in Fiji and Tonga. There's currently collection points at nine fishing shops in Auckland, Tauranga and Whangarei, and they have plans to take the idea nationwide. This Way Up's Simon Morton went to see how it works.
