It has been two years since the massive
Christchurch earthquakes completely
reshaped the city. Much has been written
about various aspects of the Christchurch
recovery, but this book provides the missing
analysis of where the city stands now, and
where it looks to be heading.
Following up from 2011's Earthquake,
A City Recovers is an extensive and up-to-date
examination of the current state of the city.
The Press' team provides poignant imagery
and expert insights; this is a fascinating rev
of Christchurch's recent tragic past and its
challenging yet promising future.
A City Recovers is availabl
from May 3 from all
leading book retailers.

three double passes to Ali
Harper and Naughty & Nice, at
the May 18 concert at Rossburn
Receptions, in Spark Lane.
This is your chance to see Ali Harper
and Naughty & Nice perform before
Harper heads to New York in June.
Harper will perform with an eight-
piece band, which includes some of
the most talented musicians in New
Zealand. Special guest Rodger Fox
will be appearing, as well as singer
Matthew Pike, from Wellington.
Why ''Naughty & Nice''?
''It's a bit of a running joke with
friends and my audiences,'' Harper
said. ''I pride myself on being a little
bit nice and whole lotta naughty,
especially as I get older!
''In my theatrical life, I have done
my fair share of pure, innocent
leading lady roles, and then when I
do my concerts, I turn things up a bit
and pop in some deliciously naughty
songs I have picked up.''
Harper has been performing
professionally since 1991. She is a
versatile performer and has
appeared around New Zealand in
theatre, cabaret and television.
This concert will feature blues,
gorgeous sultry ballads with French
and Latin flavours, and her own
deliciously naughty slant on some of
the greatest story-telling songs.
''This album really is a chocolate
box selection, showing off my very
eclectic taste in music and the many
hats I like to wear. It's also a bit of a
tribute to how colourful we women
Harper's two-CD album allows you
to relive those live, fun-filled and

children of Sefton School.
It is designed to be a family-
friendly day out. The competition

with the finals about 2pm. All the

country, where teams compete for

Hellers, in 2011, agreed to sponsor
the event for three years. This is a
well-loved New Zealand name,
grown locally from scratch, just like
the Sefton Tug of War! Hellers has
ensured that the Sefton Tug of War
will have a long future, growing
bigger and more fun every year.

The holistic view is widely accepted
A different definition, claiming
that disease is a result of physical,
emotional, spiritual, social and/or
environmental imbalance, is used in
alternative medicine. What primarily
distinguishes holistic healing from
complementary medicine, and
integrative medicine is that
