tHe fuTuRe Of supeRmaRkeT sHOppingCanada is encouragingshoppersto use more technology in supermarkets,so they can buy,bagand pay for goodsthemselves. On entering a store, you take a portable scanner, and then you check in items as you go along. When you’ve finished, the scanner adds up the value of yourpurchaseditems. You then bag the items yourself and pay at aself-checkoutmachine. This seems to be the future, and companies will make bigsavingsonoverheads, as there will be fewer checkout employees.Some people might miss thebanterwith employees, but other people seem to love it: “It was good,” one shopper said, about their self-checkoutexperience. “I didn’t have to speak to a single person!”

New Zealand and Mexico can learn a lot from each other when it comes to earthquakes, as both countries have capital cities near majorfaultsand with large areas built onreclaimed land. Structural earthquake engineers who visited ruins in Mexico City after the 2017 earthquake recognised that Wellington has similar vulnerable constructions. In 2016, many South Island buildings survived the Kaikoura earthquakeunscathed, but that was largely because Wellington was further from the epicentre; any closer and the story would be completely different. A government enquiry into building standards isongoing, but industry experts fear that property owners will leave improvementsuntil the last minute, creating a demand that will be difîcult for the engineering industry to meet.

It’s dangerous work and they don’t do it for the money, which is apittance, but because they are part of a team that knows it is doing something worthwhile. As one woman said, they would do it for free: “It feels goodthat you saved somebody’s home, you know?” Unfortunately,when they leave prison, the women cannot be hired by their local county îre departments, which prohibit the hiring offelons. Even the prison department regrets this situation; it seems ashamethat the state cannotreap the beneîtsofits training programme, while also helping ex-offendersto geta solidfoothold insociety.
