They don't go for the chicken and pasta dishes on the menu. Many chefs say they avoid those dishes because they are the "least interesting and "overpriced".

New Zealand's kick a** Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is redefining the image of a woman. Not only is she leading the small island  country, she's doing so as "unmarried, pregnant and going on maternity leave" according to NBC News.

Unlike the United states, New Zealand is not new to electing women to lead them, in fact Ardern is its third female prime minister and they allowed their women to vote 20 years before American women were given the same right.

Now, shes the first elected leader to ever take a maternity leave. In an interview to the Today show, she commented that “I’m looking forward to the day when we won’t have news stories about that because it won’t be nearly as unusual".

Prime Minister Ardern is in a committed relationship and claims her and her partner Clarke Gayford, also the baby's father,  are very committed to one another, she joked that they just haven't gotten around to a wedding and "haven't correctly sequenced, perhaps".
