Imagine that some crazy professors convince a bunch of participants at a five-day mindfulness retreat to agree to take part in an experiment where half of them are given magic mushrooms, and half of them a placebo.

The Public Information and Inquiry Centre which was activated to support the flood operation across the north coast closed at midday yesterday.

The Public Information and Inquiry Centre took more than 1850 calls from members of the public seeking flood information; however, more recent calls were traffic related.
