History Life FM started 2pm 6 March 1993 on 99.3 FM in Christchurch to the sound of U2 "In The Name Of Love" as a station broadcasting a mix of Christian and secular music. However the frequency was leased from More FM and the station was shut down on Friday, 11 July 1997, at 6pm due the lease expiring. Life FM was restarted in Auckland, Waikato and the Bay of Plenty in 1997 as a 100% Christian (Christian music) network (radio network) and was relaunched in 2002. Listener contributions from around the world make up about 70% of the network's budget. Since 2004, regular "Lifeathon" live radio events have raised a large proportion of this budget. In 2005, the event featured Zed (Zed (band)) lead singer Nathan King, boxer (boxing) David Tua, Christian band Mumsdollar, musician Dave Dobbyn and netball player Irene van Dyk.

As a result of various developments, the food scene of New Zealand in the early 21st century is in a state of flux: cosmopolitan Pacific Rim fares reign is now the norm in much of metropolitan eating out scenes, There are even reports that in Auckland by 2007, the traditional fund-raising sausage sizzles at many schools in the more affluent suburbs have been replaced with sushi, a supposedly lower fat and healthier alternative. and traditional hearty settlers food, now dubbed ''Kwisine Kiwiana'', but reinterpreted through Pacific Rim cooking knowledge, is a popular cooking style for eating out scenes even in the most remote rural regions. Most of the home cooking prepared at households in Auckland is now a mix of traditional Kiwiana dishes heavily modified by Mediterranean and Asian techniques and ingredients, and adapted versions of Mediterranean, Chinese, and Indian dishes (Indian cuisine). In the more culturally traditional parts of the country, such as rural Canterbury (Canterbury (New Zealand)) and the West Coast (West Coast (New Zealand)). However, traditional Kiwiana fares are still the norm at many homes. In general, there are minimal differences between the food preference of New Zealand and Australia. The food trends in New Zealand tend to trail its trans-Tasman counterparts by a few years to a decade, such as the Mediterranean cookery did not become mainstream in New Zealand until the dawn of 1990s, while its influence was already felt in Australia by the 1980s; and while Australia has by the early 21st century developed a well established niche specialist produce distributing channel, a similar system is still in its infancy across the Tasman. However, in recent times Auckland and Wellington have food fashions moving essentially in sync with that of Sydney and Melbourne. A positive Australian comment on modern urban New Zealand cooking, specifically Auckland, is from Bruce Elder of the Sydney Morning Herald, "...here was a time when discriminating eaters from Australia were told to take a packed lunch when visiting New Zealand. Now it is consistently good and also, at the upper end, very cheap. With an exchange rate of around $NZ1.20 equalling $AUD1 meals at the best restaurants in Auckland work out at around $AUD25 for mains and that, literally, is half what you would pay for the same in Sydney's upmarket restaurants." Bruce Elder, ''Eating in New Zealand (Part 2)'' http: blogs.smh.com.au trampaboutnz archives 007306.html. A number of Sydney and Melbourne fine-dining restaurants have Auckland connections - such as Wildfire restaurant in Sydney is owned by the former owner of Cin Cin in Auckland. Molecular cuisine has also landed in Auckland as in Sydney by 2006, but is still unheard of in much of the country. There are 10 major wine-producing areas in New Zealand, with Marlborough (Marlborough, New Zealand) famed for its sauvignon blanc, Gisborne (Gisborne, New Zealand) for its chardonnay, and Central Otago and Martinborough building a reputation for pinot noir and pinot gris. Hawkes Bay is known for its bold cabernets and Auckland's Waiheke Island is home to one of the top 20 cabernet blends in the world. Marlborough and Hawkes Bay are New Zealand's two premium wine-growing regions. New Zealand In New Zealand, Dick Smith Electronics has over 75 locations Wikipedia:Auckland City commons:Auckland

Auckland

The '''Auckland urban area''' ( In Māori (Māori language), Auckland's name is '''Tāmaki Makaurau''' and the transliterated version of Auckland is '''Ākarana'''.

The Auckland urban area (as defined by Statistics New Zealand) ranges to Waiwera in the north, Kumeu in the northwest, and Runciman in the south. It is not contiguous; the section from Waiwera to Whangaparaoa Peninsula is separate from its nearest neighbouring suburb of Long Bay (Long Bay, New Zealand). Auckland lies between the Hauraki Gulf of the Pacific Ocean to the east, the low Hunua Ranges to the south-east, the Manukau Harbour to the south-west, and the Waitakere Ranges and smaller ranges to the west and north-west. The central part of the urban area occupies a narrow isthmus (List of isthmuses) between the Manukau Harbour on the Tasman Sea and the Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean. It is one of the few cities in the world to have two harbours on two separate major bodies of water.

The 2014 Mercer Quality of Living Survey ranked Auckland 3rd place in the world on its list, while the ''Economist's (Economist Intelligence Unit)'' World's most liveable cities index of 2011 ranked Auckland in 9th place. In 2010, Auckland was classified as a Beta World City (Global city) in the World Cities Study Group's inventory by Loughborough University. http: www.lboro.ac.uk gawc world2010t.html "The World According to GaWC 2008"
