Andrew Little says Labour would need a considerably greater share of the vote to form a government than the latest polling of 24 percent.

Mr Little revealed yesterday he offered to step down as Labour leader following the party's lowest ever poll result.

But how reliable are polls these days, given they were so wrong regarding Trump and Brexit? We ask AUT Social scientist, Professor Charles Crothers

It turns out that the age old advice from medical experts about finishing all of the antibiotics prescribed might be wrong!

Traditionally medical and pharmacy professionals have encouraged patients to finish all of the antibiotics given to them even if they feel better before the course is complete.
 
A group of specialists say that advice is increasing resistance to the medicine, but that has been countered by another group of experts who say there is no evidence to support their claims.

Dr Siouxsie Wiles explains what we should do if we are on antibiotics.

3:10 The New Urban Crisis

For years, world renowned urbanist Richard Florida argued the solution to fix decaying cities is appealing to the creative class to reject the suburbs in favor of the city. 

His solution worked well, so well it created a new kind of urban crisis; expensive superstar cities like Auckland that leave other regions and the poor behind. The magnetic draw of college educated millennials, entrepreneurs and artists has  accelerated gentrification, unaffordability and inequality. 

Richard Florida explains how he got it wrong in his new book, The New Urban Crisis. How Our Cities Are Increasing Inequality, Deepening Segregation, and Failing the Middle Class-and What We Can Do About It.
