New and altered geographic names of Te Tau ihu

 Cache   

On 1 August 2014 a number of new or altered geographic names took effect as a result of the following Treaty Claims settlements:

More information about, and exact location of, these places can be found on Land Information New Zealand's Gazeteer or the GIS maps produced by Nelson City Council, Tasman District and Marlborough District Councils. History, orgin and meaning information about the names has been taken from the LINZ Gazeteer. More complete information about the cultural associations iwi have with places and resources throughout the top of the south can be found in the Te Tau Ihu Statutory Acknowledgements, 2014 [PDF] (Nelson City Council, Tasman District Council, Marlborough District Council).  A statutory acknowledgement recognises the particular cultural, spiritual, historical and traditional association of an iwi with an identified site/area and is one form of redress [PDF] required by the Te Tau Ihu Settlement Act(s).

  • Horoirangi / Drumduan
    A hill at 657 m east of Glenduan approximately 14 km northeast of Nelson City. Ngāti Kōata states that this is the highest peak at back of Glenduan and refers to the ascending from the heavens, and has cultural associations for Ngāti Kōata. Ngāti Kuia: Peart, in Old Tasman Bay (p. 125) translates Horoirangi as ‘Washing of the sky.” This is the highest peak at the back of the Glenduan. Its name derives from the description of when the clouds envelope Horo-i-rangi, which is a sign of bad weather.
  • Rotokura / Cable Bay
    A bay adjacent to Pepin Island between Ataata Point and Fall Cove approximately 16 km northeast of Nelson City. Te Atiawa and Ngāti Tama note that there is an old pā site at the Pepin Island end of the causeway and Rotokura was named as it provided ethereal reflections of the tall native trees, great solitude and peace of mind.
  • Tasman Bay / Te Tai-o-Aorere
    Ngāti Tama and Te Atiawa state that; this is the name the Bay was known by our tipuna; this name is recorded in historical evidence for the Tribunal; sometimes Te Tai-o-Aorere is called Te Tai Tapu which is a mistake as Te Tai Tapu is Golden Bay;Te Tai-o-Aorere is the ancient name for Tasman Bay and Manawhenua iwi continue to use the name today Ngāti Kuia history: Ko Maungatapu te maunga Ko Mahitahi te Awa Ko Te Tai-Aorere te Moana Ko Whakatu te Marae Ko Ngāti Kuia te Iwi Ngāti Kuia have lived on the shores of Te Tai-o-Aorere and it forms part of our pepeha and identity.
  • Te Punawai Pā
    South east of Haulashore Island. Old Ngāti Koata pa site on hill side and down to beach to left of Richardson Street (i.e. towards the Port).
Tasman
  • Golden Bay/ Mohua
  • Wharepapa / Arthur Range
    Ngāti Tama notes that Wharepapa is a sacred ancestor, providing a historical and spiritual link to the natural world. Wharepapa is the highest maunga in the takiwa and a vital link to the spirits. Ngātii Rarua history: the highest peak of these ranges is Tu Ao Wharepapa and is one of the two sacred maunga for the manawhenua of Motueka. Its significance is embodied in the pepeha “Ko Tu Ao Wharepapa te maunga, ko Ngāti Rarua te iwi….”. Important source of the plant Nei Nei which was used to manufacture the wet weather capes worn by our tupuna. Also a number of sacred caves or tomo are situated within this maunga.
  • Pourangahau / Mount Robert
    A hill at 1421 m adjacent to Lake Rotoiti on Robert Ridge approximately 4.5 km southwest of St Arnaud. Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence says that Pourangahau translates as a standing place for the “posts of research”. From here, Ngāti Apa were able to look over the sacred lake of Rotoiti.
  • Mangatāwhai
    Intersection of Tophouse/ Korere Tophouse Road. Ngāti Kuia Tribunal evidence states that Mangatawhai translates as ‘place of many trails’. This area was where many of the trails connecting Nelson, Marlborough, West Coast and Canterbury connected.

  • Paratītahi Tarns
    Between Mt McRae and Peanter Peak, SE Lake Rotoiti. Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence states that the proposed names mean ‘Purpose in life’. Ariki children were taken here in summer time to be washed, before presentation to the people in life.
  • Pikikirunga/ Canaan Downs
    Off Takaka Hill. Te Atiawa and Ngāti Tama state that Pikikirunga is named after a taniwha and the traditions of karanga. Wainui Caves say Ngararahuarau gave the first karanga and when he died he exploded and his scales were embedded in the hills. Was locally known as Canaan Downs.
  • Pukekoikoi Hill                
    Nr Tapu Bay, SW of Kaiteriteri. Te Atiawa and Ngāti Tama state that: this is a significant area for Te Atiawa. The tipuna called the hill by this name (it is recorded in J.D. Peart, 1937, Old Tasman Bay, p. 128). Pukekoikoi was renowned for its use of koikoi as more practical rākau to use when learning the blocks, the attack and the defensive movements of mau rākau.
  • Te Araruahinewai
    Confluence of Maitland Creek/ Motueka River. Headwaters of the Motueka, which is called – Te Ara Ruahinewai - meaning "Lead us from the hinterland to Tasman Bay" – where the marriages between the hapu were consecrated to enable safe travel.
  • Hinemoatū / Howard River
    A river flowing from the confluence of Hodgson Stream and Tier Stream into the Buller River, approximately 13 km west-northwest of Lake Rotoiti. Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence describes Hinemoatū as a Ngāti Apa ancestress; mother of Tama, a great mokopuna of Tarakaipa.
  • Maniniaro / Angelus Peak
    A hill at 2075m at the western end of Angelus Ridge in Travers Range approximately 7.5km southwest of Lake Rotoiti. Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence states that this is the accompanying lake to Roto Maninitua – both are the footpaths of Ngāti Apa’s dead, as they fly back to touch the shores of Hawaikinui, Hawaiki.
  • Maungakura / Red Hill
    A hill at 1791 m on Red Hills Ridge near the upper reaches of Motueka River Right Branch approximately 26 km northeast of St Arnaud. Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence states that Te Huarau was a taniwha, a kaitiaki, and he and she kept the Maungakura safe from harm.
  • Motuareronui / Adele Island
    An island north of Fisherman Island separated from Te Waipounamu by Astrolabe Roadstead, approximately 5 km northeast of Marahau. Ngāti Tama and Te Atiawa state that whanau korero says that Motuareronui is the big island of the swift moving clouds. Ngāti Rarua describes this as a large tongue shaped island.
  • Poukirikiri / Travers Saddle
    A saddle approximately 1.5 km south of Mount Travers in St Arnaud Range, between East Branch Sabine River and the upper end of Travers River, approximately 19km southwest of Lake Rotoiti. Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence states that this is the pathway to our sacred mountain of Kehu (Kehu Peak) – a guide to our elders and protector of the last swimming place of our spirits before they return to Hawaiki.
  • Pukeone / Mount Campbell
    A hill at 1330 m east of Wharepapa / Arthur Range between Riuwaka River South Branch and Pokororo River approximately 13 km west of Motueka. Te Atiawa notes that Pukeone (meaning sandy hill) is where Te Atiawa carried the sand to the top of the hill to signal to whanau. The brown area today marks where the fires used to be. Pukeone is highly significant to Te Atiawa. Ngāti Rarua history: there is korero regarding the origins of the name Pukeone and one theory advances that it is a tupuna name from early times perhaps belonging to one of Rakaihautu’s party. The translation of Sand Hill however can be related to the practice of carrying sand to the summit of the maunga where signal fires were lit to tell of special occasions. The fires burning on top of Pukeone could be seen as far as away as Whakapuaka. A fire was lit on Pukeone following Wakefield’s acceptance of Nelson as a settlement site.
  • Rākauroa / Torrent Bay
    A bay approximately 10 km northeast of Kaiteriteri. The Anchorage is within the bay. Ngāti Tama notes that, as the name implies, the area was wealthy with trees and Ngāti Tama and Te Atiawa established ship building operations there after their arrival in the rohe. This name was also recorded in Peart's Old Tasman Bay and other documents. Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence translated this as a type of tree. Rakauroa was the name of the bay, with many Ngāti Apa occupation areas.
  • Riuwaka River (was Riwaka River – also note Riuwaka River North & South Branches)
    A river flowing generally east from the confluence of Riuwaka River North Branch and Riuwaka River South Branch east of Wharepapa / Arthur Range into Tasman Bay / Te Tai-o-Aorere approximately 5 km north-northeast of Motueka. Te Atiawa states that this is: taonga wairua; Puketapu hapū have tribal accounts of relationships with the river; rivers are tapu; the mouth of the river is named after the tekoteko on top of Te Āwhina, which in turn were named after the tipuna who discovered Antarctica (Hui Te Rangiora); Riwaka is a spelling error and the “u” changes the meaning ; Riuwaka is the place that Hui Te Rangiora landed and was named by him because of its natural features.; Riuwaka is documented in Old Tasman Bay (Peart). Ngāti Rarua history: traditionally named the Riuwaka River – Riu is the name for the bilge of a waka or basin where water would gather. In this instance it is a reference to the puna or pools where the river emerges from within Papatuanuku. There are a series of pools below the Riuwaka resurgence and each pool has specific cultural purpose for the manawhenua iwi.
  • Rotomairewhenua / Blue Lake
    A lake west of Franklin Ridge and north of Rotopōhueroa / Lake Constance in Spenser Mountains approximately 25km southwest of Lake Rotoiti. Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence states that this name means ‘Lake of peaceful lands’. This lake was used for the cleansing of male bones.
  • Rotomaninitua / Lake Angelus
    A lake at 1650 m on Robert Ridge in Travers Range adjacent to Bristol Pass and Hinapouri Tarn, approximately 6km west-southwest of Lake Rotoiti. Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence states that this is the resting place of our spirits. When we depart this life into the next, Roto Maninitua refers to directing our wairua through to be washed, to bathe and to swim inside and underneath the snow, or should it be summertime, inside and underneath the mountain.
  • Rotopōhueroa / Lake Constance
    A lake below Franklin Ridge in Spenser Mountains approximately 26km southwest of Lake Rotoiti. Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence, translates this name as the ‘long calabash’. This lake was used for the final cleansing of the bones of our female tipuna, before they were entrusted to be stored in and around Ngāti Apa’s sacred places in the Sabine Valley.
  • Separation Point / Te Matau
    A coastal point between Whariwharangi Bay and Mutton Cove extending into Golden Bay / Mohua approximately 18 km northeast of Takaka. Te Matau is an ancestral name and important to Ngāti Tama and Te Atiawa as it is one of the boundary markers between Onetahua and Motueka. The name was changed by D’Urville, but iwi still refer to this name and old title deeds support the name Te Matau. Te Atiawa Tribunal evidence also recorded this name (see A Riwaka Nga Hekenga p. 117, Tribunal casebook Northern South Island Inquiry). Ngāti Kuia and Ngāti Apa note that Peart in Old Tasman Bay translates the name as meaning the fish hook of Maui. It was the western most point of the tukuwhenua and an occupation area. An older name for this place is Te Matau-a-Maui.  Ngāti Rarua history: This translates as The Hook and represents the Eastern most point of Golden Bay and the Western tip of Tasman Bay. It was an area surrounded by a number of settlements of the local manawhenua iwi.
  • Te Horowai / Speargrass Creek
    A stream flowing from Robert Ridge approximately 1 km northeast of Rotomaninitua / Lake Angelus into Buller River approximately 8 km northwest of St Arnaud. Rangitāne and Ngāti Apa Tribunal evidence states that Ngāti Apa ancestor, Te Horowai, is buried here.
  • pupusprings.jpgPupu Springs - Karen Stade

    Te Kauparenui / Gowan River
    A river flowing north from Lake Rotoroa at Rotoroa (locality) into the Buller River approximately 1 km east of Gowanbridge. Ngāti Apa tribunal evidence translates Te Kauparenui as “The Great Division”.Te Kauparanui refers to the great earth rending that closed and formed the lake we have today and that in another lifetime Te Kauparenui shook and shook so hard that it created a huge tidal force that created the river of the Gowan.
  • Te Mamaku / Ruby Bay
    Te Atiawa and Ngāti Tama note that, as the name implies, the black tree fern was once plentiful and provided resources to the iwi. This was a pa site, an occupational reserve, a kai basket, and there was a waka landing site at McKee Domain. This was also a trading beach.
  • Te Waikoropupū River
    A stream flowing from the northern end of Walker Ridge generally northeast into Takaka River approximately 1 km northwest of Takaka. Spelling alteration from Waikoropupu River (“Te” and macron added to a recorded name). The English meaning for Te Waikoropupū is the bubbling spring waters. Te Atiawa and Ngāti Tama state that the river is in the sacred valley for Te Atiawa, outlined in evidence in Te Atiawa Tribunal hearing at Motueka. Ngāti Rarua translates this name as “Bubbling Waters” and notes that this is the home of the kaitiaki Huriawa who was responsible for keeping the waterways of Mohua clear and pristine. The waters have been utilised for many sacred occasions, such as blessings, cleansing and revitalisation of the unwell. Manawhenua iwi always offer karakia before entering this sacred place.
  • Tokangawhā / Split Apple Rock
    A rock just off the coast of Towers Bay adjacent to Tokongawha Point, approximately 2 km north of Kaiteriteri. Ngāti Tama and Te Atiawa note that the split is one of the boundary markers.
Marlborough Sounds
  • Te Aumiti / French Pass
    A strait between Rangitoto ki te Tonga / D’Urville Island and Te Waipounamu, northeast of Current Basin approximately 1 km northeast of French Pass (Anaru). Ngāti Kōata states that Te Aumiti is of significance to Ngāti Koata, who have many cultural historical stories and korero associated with Te Aumiti. Ngāti Kuia translates Te Aumiti as “The current that is swallowed.” This was the place where the Shag guardian of Kupe drowned. The story of the naming sets up part of the oral map for navigating the waters and the customs behind it. The full name is “Te Aumiro o te Kawau a Toru”.
  • Whareātea Bay (Durville Island).
    Misspelled name of bay/area on the north east side of Rangitoto ki te Tonga / D’Urville Island. Was also locally known as Whareata Bay.  
  • Tory Channel / Kura Te Au
    A strait separating Arapaoa Island from Te Waipounamu, extending generally east-west from Dieffenbach Point in Queen Charlotte Sound / Tōtaranui to West Head and East Head in Cook Strait. Te Atiawa and Ngāti Tama note that this: was an important mahinga kai and settlement site for Te Atiawa; was the Te Atiawa main highway; Te Atiawa continually monitor and defend this waterway today in Environment courts; Kura Te Au separates Arapaoa Island from the mainland in the Marlborough Sounds. Kura Te Au is named because of the red colour of the sea imparted by a variety of plankton and the  multitude of the crustacean krill; Kura Te Au is place where Kupe killed the giant wheke and the blood ran through the channel. Kurahaupo and Rangitāne note that this means “the red current”. When Kupe killed Te Wheke o Muturangi, the octopus bled into the current there, turning it red. The name also denotes the red Krill found all around the outer Sounds which is eaten by octopus and whales (hence the whaling presence) and is part of the Kupe oral map.
  • Whakakitenga Bay
    A bay adjacent to Wairangi Bay, at the northeast end of Squally Cove in Marlborough Sounds. Ngāti Koata state that the name Whakitenga bay was a misspelling; Whakakitenga Bay is the correct spelling.
  • Matapihi Bay (1km NE of Okiwi Bay)
    Bay north of Okiwi Bay at the foot of Matapehe.
  • Meretoto/ Ship Cove (Queen Charlotte Sound)
    cookwebberq.s.Sound.jpgWebber, John (1751-93). View in Queen Charlotte's Sound. London : Boydell, 1809 (oils from a sketch made on Cook's Third Voyage). Alexander Turnbull Library. B-098-015
    Click image to enlarge
    Te Atiawa and Ngāti Tama note that this cove is of significance as it is: of historical importance to previous iwi and Te Atiawa; Wahi Tapu; a burial site; tauranga waka. This is the original name, with reference to the bloody mere Rangitāne: Meretoto is the place where the first interaction between Cook's crew and Rangitāne Tupuna, such as Te Rangihouhia and Kahura first took place. Was also locally known as Ship Cove and was named Ship Cove (Meretoto) on NZ topographic maps.
  • Omhuri
    An isthmus separating Whakitenga Bay and Elaine Bay in Tennyson Inlet. Reported to be where Te Rauparaha and his taua entered into the Nelson region rather than travel around through Te Aumiti (French Pass)
  • Arapaoa Island
    An island adjacent to Tory Channel / Kura Te Au and Queen Charlotte Sound / Tōtaranui approximately 14 km northeast of Picton. Te Atiawa and Ngāti Tama note that this island is the location of traditions of Kupe but highly significant to Te Atiawa. Kupe finally dispatched whekenui with a massive Arapaoa (downwards blow) to its head. It is the spiritual home of Te Atiawa, with many Kaimoana sites, many papakaianga, fortified Pa sites, whaling sites, cultivation sites, waka landing, building waka, repairs. Arapawa is a spelling error. Ngāti Kuia Tribunal evidence notes that Ara means ‘to rise’ and ‘paoa’ is to strike with a weapon. The Island was named after Kupe’s rising stroke which killed the octopus Te Wheke o Muturangi. It features in waiata and stories of the iwi.
  • Greville Harbour / Wharariki
    A harbour on Rangitoto ki te Tonga / D’Urville Island extending generally northwest from Wharairiki Bay to between Ragged Point and Two Bay Point. Historical name of cultural association. Wharariki being the name of a particular type of red flax, with minimal fibre, which is an important taonga to Ngāti Koata people.
  • Matapara / Pickersgill Island
    An island in Queen Charlotte Sound / Tōtaranui adjacent to Arapaoa Island and Blumine Island (Oruawairua). Te Atiawa’s close association with Matapara / Pickersgill Island is through ancestry, conquest and customary occupation. This motu, like many others in Totaranui, was a strategic point for warfare, occupation and contains wāhi tapu for the iwi. The foreshore surrounding Matapara / Pickersgill Island was utilised for both offshore fishing and for preparation. Matapara / Pickersgill Island was a roosting and nesting place for the little blue penguin and the shag. It was also known for its kohekohe and tawa forest. During the turn of the century the island was used for harvesting of wheat crops, speargrass and cocksfoot. Matapara is the traditional name for the island and has been used by whanau and hapu since the conquest of Totaranui by Te Atiawa.
  • Pelorus Sound / Te Hoiere
    Ko Matua Hautere te Tangata, Ko Kaikai-a-waro te taniwha, Ko Te Hoiere te Waka, Ko Ngāti Kuia te Iwi Ngāti Kuia notes that Inskull in Place Names of Marlborough (p. 55) translates this name as a type of tree, and it was the name of the waka, captained by Matua Hautere, which brought Ngāti Kuia to the area. It was guided here by their two kaitiaki, Kaikaiawaro and Ruamano. It forms a substantial part of Ngāti Kuia identity, history and place of occupation. Ngāti Toa history: Te Hoire is the traditional name given to Pelorus Sound by Ngāti Toa; the sound was renamed by Lieutenant P. Chetwode after the ship he commanded: the HMS Pelorus. Pelorus Sound was an area of concentrated Ngāti Toa occupation and control; the iwi were considered to be the ‘direct owners’ of the Sound, as well as the connected valley and river, in the 1830s and 1840s. Ngāti Toa first came into possession of the region following their conquest during 1829 and 1830. According to historian W.J. Elvy, at the time of Te Rauparaha’s raids, Ngāti Kuia held the Pelorus Sounds and the valley. The invaders, however, “cleaned up the districts pretty thoroughly, reducing the survivors to slaves, or forcing them to hide in the mountainous fastness of the hinterland.” Hopai Pa located in Crail Bay, is one famous battle site at which Ngāti Toa were victorious . Two Ngāti Toa pa, the Canon point pa, and Te Akaroa pa, are located at Port Ligar. Another site of significance was the stream mouth at Clova Bay, which was given the name Totaranui. This was a landing site for waka that crossed from Omere on the Wellington South Coast, and was used extensively during the invasion and conquest of Te Tau Ihu.
  • Queen Charlotte Sound / Tōtaranui
    Te Atiawa and Ngāti Tama state that: Totaranui waterways are the veins of Te Atiawa, each and every bay is highly significant to Te Atiawa; Totaranui is the original Te Reo name; Totaranui was bountiful inTotara. Following a series of taua 1827–1830, Ngāti Toa established themselves at a number of locations in the Marlborough Sounds, including Queen Charlotte Sound. There were a number of Ngāti Toa pa sites in Totaranui, including Te Rei o Karaka pa at Karaka Point, and Ngakuta Point Pa. Ana-o-koha, located in the Dieffenbach point area, is the site of an historic battle, at which Ngāti Toa successfully repelled and defeated an attempted ambush . Another site of significance is Ship Cove, an important tapu area where the daughter of Te Pehi Kupe is buried. Colonel Wakefield, while collecting signatures for the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840, encountered a large Ngāti Toa group.
Marlborough
  • Waikārapi Lagoon
    Was Vernon Lagoon near Blenheim. Waikārapi refers to the series of channels and weirs (Pa-tuna) built around the wider lagoons area to trap the various species of fish and birds that frequented the wetlands. This was specifically identified in the map of the Wairau drawn by Ihaia Kaikoura and copied by Ligar in 1847. Was locally known as Vernon Lagoon.

    Kahuroa Hill
    11km NE of Havelock, nr Pelorus Sound Ko Kahuroa te Maunga, Ko Te Hoiere te Awa, Ko Ruapaka te Kainga, Ko Ngāti Kuia te Iwi. The name means the long cloak and comes from the mist which shrouds it. Ngāti Kuia Tribunal evidence states that this maunga has an urupa on it and forms part of waiata, and stories. It is above the Ngāti Kuia land at Ruapaka, and forms part of the pepeha for the whanau of that place. The name means the long cloak and comes from the mist which used to shroud it. It is part of the Ngāti Kuia pepeha for the Ruapaka Kainga.[ Notes for Polynesian Society, Smith; and Ngāti Kuia evidence, Moses.]
  • Otauira Pā               
    On the shore of Robin Hood Bay, South of Port Underwood. Rangitāne Tribunal evidence records that this site translates as ‘Water rushes.’ This was an occupation and fishing area. Otauira is the Rangitāne Pa site at the mouth of the Waikutakuta stream where Ihaia Kaikoura drew the map of the Wairau for Ligar in 1847.
  • Te Ana-o-Rongomaipapa Bay
    Between Rarangi and Whites Bay. Rongomai Papa was the Rangitāne Tupuna who established Pukatea Pa and  ambushed and killed the giant flying Taniwha Ngarara Huarau. The cave that he hid in is still visible to the present day - Te Ana o Rongiomai Papa. [Tuiti Macdonald MP wrote this story for S.Percy Smith in 1906.]
  • Te Ope-a-Kupe Rock
    A rock near Port Gore. Te-Ope-a-Kupe was named by Kupe and means the group of kupe. It is a tauranga waka what was used by him for his waka Matahourua and succeeding generations of his descendants. Ngāti Kuia korero states that this was one of the landing places of Matua Hautere and his waka Te Hoiere, Te Whakamana and his waka Te Ara-a-Tawhaki and Tukauae and his waka Tahatu. There is is a rock at the site which our people says has his foot print which shows where he and his crew got of his waka. This place is still used today as a safe anchorage by Ngāti Kuia.
  • Te Pokohiwi / Boulder Bank
    Between Wairau River and White Bluffs. According to Inskull Te Pokohiwi translates as the “shoulder” and this name refers to the shape and position of the Bank. Was also locally known as Boulder Bank.
  • Ōhinemahuta River
    A stream flowing from Richmond Range near Mount Sunday into Wairau River approximately 4 km northwest of Renwick. Old Rangitāne/Ngāti Mamoe name of place where Tupuna Hine Mahuta lived hence – Ōhinemahuta.
  • Ōpaoa River
    A river flowing from the confluence of Omaka River and Ruakanakana Creek approximately 2 km northeast of Renwick generally east into Wairau River at Wairau Bar. Ngāti Rarua translates this as Smoking River, which can be described as the mist or fog rising off this particular river giving the appearance of smoke hanging over the water. This awa along with the Wairau was an important food resource and integral part of day to day life for Ngāti Rarua. Rangitāne notes that Inskull in Place Names of Marlborough (p. 54) translates ‘Paoa’ as smoke – ‘smoky river’. There are several different explanations for the name. This place was very swampy and the river became murky with the appearance of smoke. It is also known as the place of the grey teal. The tupuna Paoa had a pa there and the place was named after him.
  • Ōraumoa / Fighting Bay
    A bay east of Te Whanganui / Port Underwood approximately 17km east south-east of Picton. Ngāti Toa history: Fighting Bay, located on the Eastern Coast of Te Tau Ihu was a very important Ngāti Toa tauranga waka. It was located in close proximity to the concentrated Ngāti Toa settlement at Port Underwood, and provided a site from which Ngāti Toa could travel directly across Te Moana o Raukawa to the South Coast of Wellington. It was the site of a battle with Ngai Tahu and hence its name. Rangitāne history: Raumoa was the name of a Rangitāne ancestor who lived in the Wairau and travelled to this place for special seafood hence the name O-Raumoa, - the place of Raumoa.
  • Pukatea / Whites Bay
    A bay approximately 1 km northeast of Rarangi where Pukatea Stream flows into Te Koko-o-Kupe / Cloudy Bay. Ngāti Rarua records that this was the first landing place of the Ngāti Rarua taua in the fight for Wairau. It was also a former fishing reserve of Rarua, Toa and Rangitāne, and a campsite and mahinga kai site. Rangitāne history: Puketea translates as a type of tree. This was where a Kurahaupo tupuna killed a taniwha. It was an occupation and fishing area.  Pukatea was a traditional tauranga waka and was used by Te Rauparaha and his allies during the invasion of Te Tau Ihu in 1827 (Inskull). This site was taken as a reserve in the 1950s.

  • Ruakanakana Creek
    A stream flowing near Renwick into Omaka River (was known as Gibsons Creek). Ruakanakana Creek is the place where weirs were dug to trap Lamprey eels (kanakana) on their annual migration – hence Rua Kanakana or pit of the Lampreys.
  • Takapōtaka / Attempt Hill
    A hill at 729 m on Rangitoto ki te Tonga / D’Urville Island approximately 8 km north-northeast of Te Aumiti / French Pass. This was the name of the hill prior to European settlement.
  • Te Anamāhanga / Port Gore
    A bay between Cape Lambert and Cape Jackson adjacent to Cook Strait approximately 3 km northeast of Endeavour Inlet This name translates as ‘Twin bays’. Te Huataki of Rangitāne landed here. Ngāti Kuia and Ngāti Apa also lived here.
  • Te Hoiere / Pelorus River (see Pelorus Sound above)
  • Te Koko-o-Kupe / Cloudy Bay
    A bay approximately 15.5km north-east of Blenheim extending from Robertson Point to White Bluffs/Te Parinui o Whiti and eastwards into Cook Strait. Ngāti Rarua history: The scoop of Kupe. The place that was scooped out or formed by legendary explorer Kupe. Rangitāne translates this name as the scoop of Kupe. Kupe’s waka went aground at Wairau (Vernon) Lagoons. Ngāti Toa history: The wider Cloudy Bay region, encompassing both the Wairau and Port Underwood, was an extremely significant area to Ngāti Toa. Ngāti Toa was acknowledged to have possession of this Bay and it was a location of concentrated occupation. Ngāti Toa had both residences and cultivated lands in Cloudy Bay. Cloudy Bay was also an important centre of the thriving whale industry. The population did decrease in the late 1840s, however Ngāti Toa did maintain their occupation of Cloudy Bay. Ngāti Rarua history: This name originates from the time of Kupe and his infamous pursuit of the octopus Te Wheke o Muturangi. The name literally translates as the Scoop of Kupe meaning the place or area that was scooped out or formed by Kupe.
  • Te Tara-o-Te-Marama / Mount Freeth
    A hill at 625 m approximately 3 km southwest of Picton. Te Atiawa and Ngāti Tama note that this was the maunga used for the whanau in the area; Ko Tara o te Marama – meaning ‘it is the peak of the moon’ (‘tara’ as in Taranaki). Rangitāne note that Insull’s Place names of Marlborough (pp. 47 & 51) translates this as ‘Moonlight mountain’. At a certain time of the year the rising moon follows the gradient of the maunga.
  • Te Whanganui / Port Underwood
    Ngāti Rarua: Te Whanganui means the large harbour. Ngati Toa: This was the largest and most concentrated area of Ngati Toa settlement in Te Tau Ihu; their interests in Port Underwood were based upon both conquest and effective occupation. According to Dieffenbach there were approximately 400 Ngāti Toa living in the ‘Cloudy Bay’ area. This community was led by Nohorua, Te Kanae and Rawiri Puaha and was centred on the mission and whaling industry. A pa and urupa were located on Horahora Kakahu Island in Te Whanganui. This is a very important historical and cultural site as this was the location at which a number of Ngāti Toa chiefs signed the Treaty of Waitangi.
  • Tokomaru / Mount Robertson
    A hill at 1036 m on Robertson Range approximately 6 km southeast of Picton. Ngāti Toa history: Tokomaru is a site of cultural significance. It is recognised as being te maunga o Ngāti Toa ki roto i te Wairau. Ngāti Rarua history: Sacred mountain for Ngāti Rarua within the rohe of Wairau. The name has origins within pre Aotearoa settlement and relates to a peak of the same name in Hawaiki. Translation refers to a toko or pole used within a tuahu or shelter erected on the summit of this peak that gives maru or shelter and protection over the whenua or plains of Wairau. Its significance to iwi is immense and is enshrined within the pepeha “ Ko Tokomaru te pae maunga, ko Ngāti Rarua te iwi…”.
  • Tūtūmāpou Hill
    A hill at 319 m south of Te Hoiere / Pelorus River approximately 1.5 km west of Canvastown and 10 km west-southwest of Havelock. Ko Tutumapou te Maunga Ko Te Hoiere te Awa Ko Te Hora te Pa Ko Ngāti Kuia te Iwi The Ngāti Kuia translation means the bird snare (Tutu) in the mapou tree. The mountain was a regular food source of kereru for Te Hora Pa, which still in use today. It is part of the Ngāti Kuia pepeha for Te Hora Marae.
  • Waikutakuta / Robin Hood Bay
    A bay southwest of the entrance to Te Whanganui / Port Underwood approximately 10 km southeast of Picton. Ngāti Rarua describes this as the place of the water rushes. It was a former site of large Māori settlement, and an extensive cultivation site. This was the name used by Ngāti Rarua for Robin Hood Bay. However, the original name may only relate to a feature or natural marker within the Bay. The name Waikutakuta is recorded in a waiata tawhito of Ngāti Rarua titled “Ka kati i te karaka”. Ngāti Toa history: Robin Hood Bay, located in the south of Port Underwood was an area of concentrated Ngāti Toa occupation. The settlements of Cloudy Bay and Port Underwood were predominantly coastal, at locations such as Robin Hood Bay, however inland areas were heavily utilised for various resources. In the 1830s Te Rauparaha had a home in Robin Hood Bay, which he visited and occupied during the whaling season each year. Te Rongo, wife of Te Rangihaeata, is said to be buried at Robin Hood Bay. She was killed at Wairau during the 1843 incident.

Ground-motion amplification in Cook Inlet region, Alaska from intermediate-depth earthquakes, including the 2018 MW=7.1 Anchorage earthquake

 Cache   

We measure pseudospectral and peak ground motions from 44 intermediate‐depth Mw≥4.9 earthquakes in the Cook Inlet region of southern Alaska, including those from the 2018 Mw 7.1 earthquake near Anchorage, to identify regional amplification features (0.15  s period). Ground‐motion residuals are computed with respect to an empirical ground‐motion model for intraslab subduction earthquakes, and we compute bias, between‐, and within‐event terms through a linear mixed‐effects regression. Between‐event residuals are analyzed to assess the relative source characteristics of the Cook Inlet earthquakes and suggest a difference in the scaling of the source with depth, relative to global observations. The within‐event residuals are analyzed to investigate regional amplification, and various spatial patterns manifest, including correlations of amplification with depth of the Cook Inlet basin and varying amplifications east and west of the center of the basin. Three earthquake clusters are analyzed separately and indicate spatial amplification patterns that depend on source location and exhibit variations in the depth scaling of long‐period basin amplification. The observations inform future seismic hazard modeling efforts in the Cook Inlet region. More broadly, they suggest a greater complexity of basin and regional amplification than is currently used in seismic hazard analyses.


          

Losing Sight of Jefferson and Falling into Plato

The Death of Socrates, by Jacques-Louis David (1787)

 

Many professors at higher-level academic institutions profess to be practitioners of a Socratic method of teaching, which is a method of students arriving at understanding by a teacher “pestering” them with probing questions that lead to self-searching. Many, if not most, of such practitioners presume that the method facilitates true learning. Socratic teaching and learning are not reducible, in John Dewey’s words, to pouring information into the heads of students, but they are a matter of drawing out what is, in some sense, already there.

Socrates (469–399 B.C.) was one of Ancient Athens’ most unusual citizens. He professed a profound love of Athens insofar as he claimed he could never offer a return to Athens (or its citizens) as valuable as what he had, throughout his life, gained from the cosmopolitan polis.

 

What was unique about Socrates was his zetetic (seeking) manner of living. He renounced all pleasures other than the pleasure he experienced in searching for knowledge, which he said he never possessed. He claimed to be wise only inasmuch as he recognized that he, unlike other prominent Athenians, understood that he knew nothing, and thus, that human wisdom counted for nothing next to divine wisdom.

 

Never claiming to have any (real) knowledge—that is, knowledge of things substantive such as of the virtues piety, wisdom, justice, self-control, and courage—he spent his days throughout his life in pursuit of knowledge. His daily zetetic activity showed that he did not consider that activity fatuous. That demonstrates that he, at least, thought that acquisition of knowledge was humanly possible. Otherwise, his life would have been as pointless as searching to find great-tailed grackles, birds endemic to hot places like Texas, in Anchorage, Alaska.

 

Socrates’ method of pursuit was elenchus—a method of dialectic exchange in which the one chiefly in pursuit of knowledge, usually Socrates, asked an interlocutor a number of questions, pointedly articulated to get at the nature of a particular virtue, or even virtue in general.  After expostulation of an initial definition from an initial question—e.g., “What is virtue?”—questions would be crafted to expose insufficiencies in the proposed definition—e.g., “Whatever is just is virtuous” (Meno)—with the expectation of either refinement of the proposed definition or proposal of a different definition, in keeping with flaws in the definition, exposed by later questions.

 

The end of all such elenctic Socratic dialogs was aporia—a state of puzzlement or confusion which characterizes an interlocutor who came to recognize that he did not or might not know what he had thought he knew. In Plato’s Socratic dialogs, interlocutors in aporia often walk away in anger from Socrates, but sometimes walk away accepting that they must now seek the knowledge they hitherto thought that they had.

 

Socrates, Plato tells us in Apology, made few friends through his practice as he showed prominent Athenian politicians, poets, and craftsmen that they did not know the things they thought that they knew (things such as justice, piety, and beauty). He doubly irritated many, as the youth often imitated his methods. Hence, he was ultimately sentenced to death because of numerous charges, each reducible to corruption of the young.

 

Socrates was not supposed to be sentenced to death, for Athenian democracy was in the main largely tolerant of differences of opinion—even somewhat disruptive differences of opinion (consider Epicurus’ philosophical Garden, which placed just outside Athens, preached a minimalist sort of hedonism, through freedom from mental disquiet, ataraxia, and social withdrawal). Socrates merely could not promise to stop doing what was considered by many to be so disruptive of daily Athenian affairs—his daily dialectic.

 

There are too few genuine Socrateses in today’s higher education and even fewer students, willing to be challenged dialectically. Anyone who has taught in higher education for more than two decades has doubtless come to recognize that the “New Millennials” and even the generation beyond them, the students born in or after 2000, are difficult, if not impossible to teach. They are, in the words of Professor Elayne Clift, “devoid of originality, analytical ability, [and] intellectual curiosity.” She continues, “Having passed through a deeply flawed education system in which no one is paying attention to critical thinking and writing skills, they just want to know what they have to do to make their teachers tick the box that says ‘pass.’” All the other teachers do that.

 

Why? Students have an effective tool, rage, through a sense of academic entitlement, which many utilize as a security blanket. When they perform poorly, as they often tend to do, they blame their poor performance on poor teaching. Teachers, due to pressure aligned with need of strong evaluations, seldom challenge inculpation. They are too afraid of poor evaluations and direct complaints, which may readily result in loss of adjunct work or failure to attain tenureship. Many teachers, I believe, now sheepishly accept the notion that they, not the students, are the problem. Moreover, students are also in a position of power because they are viewed as consumers, and institutions are in the market to attract as many students each year as they can attract. Education is increasingly following the pattern of successful businesses, which follow the mantras: The more customers, the more money, and the customer is always right.

 

Socratic teaching in such a milieu is impossible, because it is designed principally to expose ignorance. Today’s students are entitled to a passing grade without working because they already know everything they really need to know. Each is a sun of his own solar system—no binary stellar systems here!—and the orbiting bodies orbit for the sake of that sun. Says Daniel Mendelson, “Perhaps because they have received more attention than any generation in the history of Homo sapiens, millennials seem to be convinced that every aspect of their existence, from their love lives to their struggles with reverse peristalsis, is of interest not just to their parents but to everyone else as well.”

 

Plato millennia ago saw the problem as one of pure democracy (demokratia). In a democracy, according to Plato in Republic, each person thinks of himself as the equal of all others in all ways. The city is full of freedom and free speech and everyone is free to do what he wants to do when he wishes to do it. Democracy, constitutionally, is a “supermarket of constitutions,” as it embraces all persons and all rules. “[A democrat], always surrendering himself to whichever desire comes along, lives as if it were chosen by lot” (557a–561b). 

 

Thomas Jefferson, of course, was aware of the pitfalls of democracy. There can be no such thing as a pure democracy over a large expanse of land, he avers, but only in a small parcel, such as a ward, where smallness of political space enables all to have an equal share in political matters. Hence, Jefferson, while in France, speaks to James Madison (30 Jan. 1787) of the need of representative government, where “the will of every one has a just [and not a direct] influence,” for affairs of state and country. Even with representative government, he continues to Madison, “the mass of mankind … enjoys a precious degree of liberty & happiness.” Nonetheless, “it has it’s evils too: the principal of which is the turbulence to which it is subject,” because of its embrace of freedom of expression.

 

Yet the pitfall of turbulence is often massively misconstrued or hyperbolized by scholars—e.g., Conor Cruise O’Brien. Jefferson writes thus in a letter to Madison (20 Dec. 1787) of Shays’ Rebellion, an event which horrified many, especially New Englanders. “The late rebellion in Massachusetts had given more alarm than I think it should have done. Calculate that one rebellion in 13 states in the course of 11 years, is but one for each state in a century & an half. No country should be so long without one.” Earlier in the same year (Jan. 30), he writes to Madison, “A little rebellion now and then is a good thing & as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.” Some six years later (3 Jan. 1793), he writes to William Short of the sanguinary effects of the French Revolution: “My own affections have been deeply wounded by some of the martyrs to this cause, but rather than it should have failed, I would have seen half the earth desolated. Were there but an Adam and an Eve left in every country, and left free, it would be better than as it now is.” The bloodshed of a rebellion is, of course, abominable in the short term, but “this evil is productive of good. It prevents the degeneracy of government, and nourishes a general attention to the public affairs.” In sum, what appears as a pitfall of democracy on a large scale is really its great strength.

 

Jefferson did have an antidote—a means of preventing too many rebellions. That was periodic constitutional reform, effected through robust discussions by the people themselves. John Stuart Mill agrees. The strength of a vital democracy, Mill notes, is not only its tolerance of difference of opinions, but also the vitality with which it aims to iron out those differences through respectful, progressive debate. Robert Healey agrees: “Democracy is a means of determining courses of action through use of open and admitted conflict of opinion. Its ideal is not the achievement of a homogeneous society, but true cooperation, the working together of different people and groups who have deliberated with each other.” Thus, the aim of democratic thriving is citizens’ engagement with the institution through collisions of ideas. Those collisions are not purposeless, but aim at truth or at least heightened understanding of problems or issues in a solemn effort toward resolution.

 

Robust discussion is what is missing in the educative climate of the twenty-first century which worships a new, radical liberalism—toleration of diversity of opinion as an end, not as a means. The teaching milieu in the twenty-first century embraces tolerance of differences, but not progress with the aim of ironing out those differences through respectful debate—the Jeffersonian ideal behind periodic constitutional renewal. Thus, with disavowal of the Jeffersonian ideal, there is avowal of Plato’s concept of democracy in which freedom has become an end, and a deteriorative end, and not a means to an end—human flourishing.

 

We ought to strive today to recognize and aim at the Jeffersonian democratic ideal, not the Platonic degenerative conception. Within the ideal of Jeffersonian republicanism, there not only is room for Socratic methods of teaching, there also is need for Socratic methods of teaching. Why? It is, as Jefferson noted, better to have turbulent liberty than quiet servitude.

A Decade of Care: Hanes Launches 10th National Sock Drive to Help the Homeless; Tops 3 Million Donated Pairs

 Cache   

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., November 22, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Small gifts often have the most meaning.

For the millions of people living homeless, a clean pair of socks is often described as “the gift of humanity.” Hanes, America’s No. 1 basic apparel, underwear and sock brand, is partnering with organizations fighting homelessness nationwide to deliver comfort to those who need it most through the Hanes National Sock Drive. The brand is marking 10 years of helping provide care and compassion during this year’s drive by:

  • Donating more than 250,000 pairs of socks directly to organizations fighting homelessness in all 50 states, along with Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. Since the program’s inception in 2009, Hanes has provided more than 3 million pairs of socks – one of the most requested items by relief agencies – to help the homeless.

  • Giving an additional pair of socks for every order of any apparel placed in December on Hanes.com. Socks will be provided to local homeless shelters.

  • Partnering with Rainier Fruit Company for its second “Pears for Pairs” campaign, which is currently running in United Supermarkets, Harris Teeter, Wegmans, and Lunds & Byerlys stores. From late September through January, Rainier is donating a portion of the proceeds from bulk and bagged pear sales to the Hanes National Sock Drive. In 2018, the Pears for Pairs campaign resulted in 20,000 pairs of socks being donated to five nonprofits.

  • Offering consumers the opportunity to participate directly in the program by visiting www.hanes.com/donate to gift socks ($1), women’s underwear ($1), men’s underwear ($1.50) and bras ($6) that will be distributed in needed styles and sizes.

  • Continuing its 10-year collaboration with Invisible People and its founder, Mark Horvath, to help raise awareness about homelessness. Invisible People uses innovative storytelling, educational resources and advocacy to help change how the public views homelessness and those living homeless in the United States and abroad.

“Most of us take basic apparel for granted, but we know a new, clean pair of socks can mean a lot to those experiencing homelessness,” said Sidney Falken, chief branding officer, HanesBrands. “We are committed to bringing a little comfort to those who need it most – and it is incredibly gratifying to have others, including many individuals across the country, join us in this effort.”

More than 100 agencies, including The Salvation Army Bell Shelter (Bell, California), Homeward Bound (Asheville, North Carolina) and Compassion Outreach Ministries (Columbus, Ohio), have received sock donations from Hanes.

“Small things really do make a big difference to our clients,” said Steve Lytle, director of The Salvation Army Bell Shelter. “The smile on a client’s face when she received a clean pair of socks for the first time in months was priceless. There was joy in her eyes and it was clear that the socks were the most precious gift she could have received in that moment. Another client said his gift of clean socks was a sign that there are people who care and that his life did matter.”

Homeward Bound distributes more than 2,000 pairs of socks a month to those living homeless.

“Homelessness is a community problem and it will take everyone’s support to help end the epidemic,” said Ashley Campbell, the agency’s outreach specialist. “Right now, some of your neighbors are living outside, in tents and under bridges, vulnerable to inclement weather and violence, stripped of dignity and our collective respect.

“There are so many ways to help,” Campbell continued. “Educate yourself about homelessness in your community, volunteer at your local agency fighting this issue or simply make a donation that would help a nonprofit save its limited resources.”

Jeffrey Tabor, director of TWO Men’s Ministry House for Compassion Outreach Ministries of Ohio, added that there is no donation too small to be used for good to fulfill a basic human need.

“Imagine the importance of just one pair of socks when you are focused on keeping your feet dry and warm during the cold winter months,” Tabor said. “That’s why we are so thankful for our partnership with Hanes, which has fulfilled an immediate, basic human need for so many people.”

Lytle underscores, however, that sometimes it all boils down to human contact. “Acknowledge people who are experiencing homelessness with a smile or hello,” he said. “By engaging with a person who is experiencing homelessness we are saying ‘I see you and you matter.’”

The Hanes National Sock Drive is part of Hanes for Good, the corporate responsibility program of Hanes’ parent company, HanesBrands (NYSE:HBI).

More than 100 agencies, including The Salvation Army Bell Shelter (Bell, California), Homeward Bound (Asheville, North Carolina) and Compassion Outreach Ministries (Columbus, Ohio), have received sock donations from Hanes.

“Small things really do make a big difference to our clients,” said Steve Lytle, director of The Salvation Army Bell Shelter. “The smile on a client’s face when she received a clean pair of socks for the first time in months was priceless. There was joy in her eyes and it was clear that the socks were the most precious gift she could have received in that moment. Another client said his gift of clean socks was a sign that there are people who care and that his life did matter.”

Homeward Bound distributes more than 2,000 pairs of socks a month to those living homeless.

“Homelessness is a community problem and it will take everyone’s support to help end the epidemic,” said Ashley Campbell, the agency’s outreach specialist. “Right now, some of your neighbors are living outside, in tents and under bridges, vulnerable to inclement weather and violence, stripped of dignity and our collective respect.

“There are so many ways to help,” Campbell continued. “Educate yourself about homelessness in your community, volunteer at your local agency fighting this issue or simply make a donation that would help a nonprofit save its limited resources.”

Jeffrey Tabor, director of TWO Men’s Ministry House for Compassion Outreach Ministries of Ohio, added that there is no donation too small to be used for good to fulfill a basic human need.

“Imagine the importance of just one pair of socks when you are focused on keeping your feet dry and warm during the cold winter months,” Tabor said. “That’s why we are so thankful for our partnership with Hanes, which has fulfilled an immediate, basic human need for so many people.”

Lytle underscores, however, that sometimes it all boils down to human contact. “Acknowledge people who are experiencing homelessness with a smile or hello,” he said. “By engaging with a person who is experiencing homelessness we are saying ‘I see you and you matter.’”

The Hanes National Sock Drive is part of Hanes for Good, the corporate responsibility program of Hanes’ parent company, HanesBrands (NYSE:HBI).

Intricacies in the cross talk between metabolic enzymes, RNA, and protein translation

 Cache   
The development of techniques allowing the systematic capture of the RNA-bound proteome has yielded many surprises. Among these, metabolic enzymes have been frequently detected as RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) by different profiling methodologies in various cell types (Hentze et al., 2018). Compared to previous—more simplistic—views, it is now known that cellular metabolism (not only limited to the tricarboxylic acid, TCA, cycle) is compartmentalized. In fact, metabolic enzymes translocate to the nucleus and are enriched at actively transcribed loci, where they sustain epigenetic/epitranscriptomic marks through localized metabolite production (Mews et al., 2017). It has been proposed that the interaction with nascent RNAs facilitates the anchorage of metabolic enzymes at target loci (Bao et al., 2018), and it is plausible that mature RNAs work in the same way to assist metabolic reactions in the cytoplasm. Yet, it is becoming increasingly evident that the interaction of metabolic enzymes with RNA also has metabolism-independent functions, and protein translation is emerging as a key missing nexus (Figure 1A). For example, the glycolytic enzyme pyruvate kinase muscle 2 (PKM2) promotes protein translation through simultaneous binding to target mRNAs and ribosomal components (Simsek et al., 2017). Thus, deeper understanding of the relationship between RNA and metabolic enzymes is necessary for gaining a complete model of metabolism and other cellular functions as a whole.

Feds declare economic disasters for Swan Lake, McKinley fires

 Cache

Small business owners who can show that they lost customers because of the Swan Lake Fire on the Kenai Peninsula can now get low-interest federal loans to help them recover.

The U.S. Small Business Administration declared the Kenai Peninsula and surrounding areas an “economic injury zone” due to the widespread Swan Lake Fire this summer. The fire, which started June 5 and burned more than 167,000 acres, threatened the Sterling Highway in August and burned across the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge between Sterling and Cooper Landing.

Though firefighters controlled fire activity through the early summer and scaled back operations in July, a windstorm and exceptionally hot, dry conditions in mid-August caused the fire to flare again, crossing the Sterling Highway and threatening Cooper Landing with evacuation.

Alaska’s exceptionally hot and dry summer saw a number of fires start and burn in areas they have not burned in the past. Because of the lack of rain on the Kenai Peninsula, the Swan Lake Fire was able to burn through alpine territory across the Mystery Hills and down into the popular Resurrection Pass Trail area.

In East Anchorage, a brush fire in a wooded area in early July prompted a hasty response and evacuation orders among nearby residents. Hot, dry conditions with risks of high wind prompted forestry officials to declare a complete burn ban across the Kenai Peninsula for several weeks in August. A pair of destructive fires dubbed Deshka and McKinley also sprung up in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, burning dozens of properties from Talkeetna to Willow.

Cooper Landing and Sterling are usually major destinations throughout the fall and summer for tourists, with plentiful hiking, fishing and camping opportunities. This summer, because of the difficulty of transportation and the heavy wildfire smoke, many visitors cancelled their trips, leaving business owners to swallow the shortfall.

Though the Kenai Peninsula Borough’s sales tax figures for the third fiscal quarter have not yet been published, some small business owners estimated between a 5 and 20 percent revenue loss, said Cliff Cochran, Kenai Peninsula Center Director for the Alaska Small Business Development Center.

The western peninsula was affected as well, with tourists from Anchorage not wanting to risk getting stuck if the fire closed the highway and the air quality significantly impacted by smoke.

“In-state tourists from Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley saw videos circulating on social media of the fire billowing over the highway, causing many of them to cancel trips down to the peninsula,” Cochran said in an email. “B&B and lodge owners complained that this occurred even when the fire was not anywhere near the highway and there was great weather with mountain views on the peninsula.”

Air quality and threats of evacuation kept many tourists away from Cooper Landing, which depends heavily on the seasonal income from May to October. Firefighters and other personnel stationed in Cooper Landing buffered the impact some, but when they left, revenues dropped further as residents looked to conserve income after a poor summer, Cochran said.

In some cases, small businesses reported their revenues down between 20 to 30 percent in September and October.

The Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly appealed to Gov. Michael J. Dunleavy, who sent a request for a disaster declaration to the Small Business Administration on Oct. 2. About a week later, on Oct. 8, the agency granted the declaration for the Swan Lake Fire.

The disaster declaration makes low-interest federal loans available for small businesses affected by the fire. Small business owners on the Kenai Peninsula and in the adjacent areas — including Kodiak, the Municipality of Anchorage, the Mat-Su Borough, and the Lake and Peninsula Borough — can apply for assistance.

Business owners in the affected area don’t have to show property damage, only economic injury, said Kevin Wynne, the public information officer for the SBA’s Office of Disaster Assistance in the West Field Operations Center.

The interest rates are set at 4 percent for small businesses and 2.75 percent for private nonprofits. The loan funds can be used as working capital but not to replace lost revenue, Wynne said. All of the loans are worked out on a case-by-case basis as people apply.

“(The rates) make recovery very affordable for small businesses,” he said. “One of the great things about the loans is they get a five-month deferral. They’re going to be low payments anyway, but (business owners) can spend all their resources in getting back up in running.”

The Swan Lake Fire wasn’t the only disaster declared for Alaska’s summer. North of Anchorage, the McKinley Wildland Fire burned only 3,288 acres but caused much more property damage than the Swan Lake Fire. Ignited on Aug. 17, the fire had damaged 52 homes, three businesses and 84 outbuildings by the following night and threatened the Parks Highway, leading to road closures and traffic control.

The SBA also declared a disaster for the McKinley Fire, though the conditions are a little different because buildings were damaged. In that area, homeowners are eligible for loans to help pay for repairs in addition to the small businesses in the area; in the Swan Lake Fire area, only small businesses are eligible.

Homeowners can borrow up to $200,000 to replace or repair damaged real estate and up to $40,000 for damaged personal property. To date, the SBA has approved three homeowner loans for a total of $479,000 in the McKinley Fire area, Wynne said.

The loans have a deadline, though. For homeowners in the McKinley Fire area, that’s Dec. 2. Small business owners in the McKinley Fire area have until July 1, 2020, and until July 8, 2020 in the Swan Lake Fire area. That’s in part because business owners have to get their paperwork in order, including tax documents and profit and loss statements, and that can take time, Wynne said.

Small business owners can apply for loans online at the SBA’s website.

“It’s generally as quickly as possible that they can apply,” he said. “Generally, for businesses, it’s within 21 days. The loan officer will call them and work with them to get the loan approved.”

    Event Update For 2019-11-29

     Cache   






    The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




    A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
    B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
    C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
    D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
    E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
    F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

    When we left La Cruz in Banderas Bay on November 4th for the Sea of Cortez we were looking for cooler weather. Our last two nights in the La Cruz anchorage were hot and sweaty so we looked forward to cooling sea breezes as we sailed North.
