14 NORTH SHORE TIMES, NOVEMBER 11, 2010 NEWS MASSEY UNIVERSITY. MAKING AN IMPACT ON THE WORLD. Kirsty Hammond is as curious about the cows as they are about her. Her passion for animals and a deep curiosity is what's taken the Massey PhD student to the forefront of the fight to decrease New Zealand agriculture's contribution to greenhouse gases. Cows and sheep lose between 2 to 12 percent of their energy in methane. Kirsty is working out how to get them to turn this into milk, meat and wool instead. It's a special sort of alchemy that has national and international implications. It's a win for both farmers and the environment, not just in New Zealand, but across the globe. From pasture to the plate, Massey University is encouraging innovation across the whole food chain. Massey people like Kirsty are having an impact on the lives of people and animals, all over the world. To find out how Massey can help you make an impact, visit www.massey.ac.nz or call 0800 MASSEY.

By LISA HONEYBONE ' I really just love creating costumes and get a real kick out of seeing a production come together. ' Cathie Sandy The real heroine of Com- pany Theatre's latest production is not on stage but behind the scenes. Costume designer Cathie Sandy has trav- elled all around Auck- land over the last few months in preparation for Music Hall which will be performed at the Rose Theatre in Belmont from November 13 to 27. The production has 16 in the chorus, several guest artistes, a five- piece band and a chair- man, most of who have at least six complete cos- tume changes each. Mrs Sandy has spent hours researching the Victorian era as she has done for all the other shows during the last 27 years with the company. I really just love cre- ating costumes and get a real kick out of seeing a production come together,'' she says. Phone 445-9900 to book.
