Before having too much fun manipulating and being innovative with our emotions, we first need to learn how they work, and how to control them. Understanding how we are wired up, the effect our emotions have on our performance and physiology and how they affect our behavior and relationships are part of the learning process.

I often hear bandied about that if we tighten our laws around alcohol especially around the Rugby World Cup we will be the laughing stock of the world as Auckland needs to be a global city.
