Where does the impeachment inquiry go now?

 Cache   
The U.S. House of Representatives impeachment inquiry hearings picked up steam this week, as nine current and former U.S. officials testified on President Donald Trump's controversial dealings with the Ukrainian government. With three full days of testimony this week, and two the previous, International Edition’s Steve Miller speaks with Dr. Craig Albert, a political science professor at Augusta University, to unpack as to what the testimony meant to the Democrats and Republicans. Plus, a former CIA officer who pleaded guilty to an espionage conspiracy with China faces sentencing. The AP's Matt Small reports. In a major policy reversal, South Korea said Friday it has decided to continue a 2016 military intelligence-sharing agreement with Japan that it previously said it would terminate amid ongoing tensions over wartime history and trade. The decision comes at a time when the United States has requested substantial increases to what it wants South Korea and Japan to pay for hosting US forces in their respective countries. International Edition’s Steve Miller speaks with John Grover Korean Studies Fellow at the Institute for the National Interest. Later in the program... after three years of investigation, Israel's Attorney General has decided to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in three separate cases. The most serious charge is bribery, and it is the first time in Israel's history that a sitting prime minister has been indicted. Linda Gradstein reports Netanyahu accused the attorney general of trying to stage a coup. Turning to world news... British police say they have arrested a 23-year-old man from Northern Ireland over the deaths of 39 people from Vietnam who were found in a refrigerated container truck last month. The top U.S. representative in Taiwan says Washington is working with it to combat efforts by Beijing to influence upcoming elections on the island. Police will be out in force at polling stations in Hong Kong this weekend as keenly contested local elections take place amid ongoing anti-government protests. A rare near-mint condition copy of the first Marvel Comics comic book has sold at auction in Dallas for $1.26 million. A jury in New Zealand found a man guilty on Friday of murdering British backpacker Grace Millane, almost a year after the incident took place. Reuters' Jayson Albano has the details. Finally, a new report finds most adolescents around the world do not get enough physical activity on a daily basis to be healthy and to stay healthy as adults. Lisa Schlein reports this World Health Organization study presents the first-ever global estimates of insufficient physical activity among adolescents aged 11 to 17.

Political albums from November 2019.
November 28, 2019

Here are the best new albums that relate to this month's political news, including the album of the year. If you read to the end, there's also a bonus. What albums would you suggest? Comment on TwitterFacebook, or email


1. TO THE GRAVE - GLOBAL WARNING

On November 1, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced plans to take action against banks and insurers that were boycotting the coal industry over climate change concerns. Four days later, 11,000 scientists declared a link between human activity and climate change, yet as people began to die in "unprecedented" bushfires sweeping Australia, Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack blasted anyone linking the fires to climate change as "raving inner-city lunatics". In the midst of the madness, Sydney deathcore band To The Grave released their new climate-themed album, which opens with the apt song "Holocaustralia". "In a genre oversaturated with violent lyrics simply for the sake of violence, I found that the most horrific things I could write about were right in front of us all, the things most of us choose not to look at," said singer Dane Evans, whose vocals range from a roar to a Gollum-like rasp over music that's as extreme as Australia's politics. LISTEN>>>    

2. ARCHIE ROACH - TELL ME WHY 

Things got batshit crazier when McCormack's fellow National Party member Barnaby Joyce claimed two people who died in the fires were probably Greens voters, implying they deserved to die because, Joyce claimed, the Greens had stopped the backburning of the bush. It was a complete fabrication, besides the fact that the Greens are strong supporters of Australia's Aboriginal people, who have backburned the bush for millennia. Telling the stories of those people was activist and musician Archie Roach, who released his autobiography along with an accompanying album on November 5. Tell Me Why maps out his life, "from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader". It came as protests swept the country after a white policeman shot an Aboriginal man dead in the Northern Territory, adding to the never-ending tally of Black deaths in custody for which no one has ever been jailed. MORE>>>

3. SOLE & DJ PAIN 1 - NO GOD NOR COUNTRY

Raging against such racism is US rapper Sole, who opens his explosive new album with the song "FTL", which seethes: "Slap on the wrist, that's a white male. Slapped behind bars, that's a black male. Don't need me explaining white supremacy cos so many see it every day. But to my fellow settlers: check yourself, don't forget everything you've got's on the back of someone else. Fuck the law, cos it's racist. Fuck the court it's too expensive. Fuck the jails they don't fix shit. Fuck the cops cos they ain't shit." And on "Extremist" the long-time podcaster and protester spits: "As we speak, millionaires are buying up streams and lakes in New Zealand, building doomsday bunkers. What about the rest of us who can't afford to leave this mess that you made? If resisting this makes me an extremist, then that word is utterly meaningless." Everything about this record, from Sole's sharp raps to DJ Pain 1's blunted beats, is flawless. It's the album of the year for me. LISTEN>>> 

4. MOOR MOTHER - ANALOG FLUIDS OF SONIC BLACK HOLES 

Also raging against racist cops is Afrofuturist Moor Mother with her new experimental electronic album, released on November 8. On "LA92" she speak-raps: “Latasha got shot over orange juice. No cash, got shot. No justice body rock... LAPD on PCP, body bag body bag for you and me.” The lyrics refer to the 1992 murder of 15-year-old Latasha Harlins by Korean-born liquor store owner Soon Ja Du, who had accused her of shoplifting. The event, along with the videotaped police beating of African-American Rodney King two weeks earlier, became the impetus for the Los Angeles race riots. Describing the album, she said: “My whole work is to fight against the erasure of black people, the erasure of poor people, the erasure of black women, the erasure of women... If you have the knowledge of what’s happening in the world, and what has happened in the world to marginalised people, then what will you do with your energy?” LISTEN>>>

5. COLDPLAY - EVERYDAY LIFE 

Even tame, white British pop rockers like Coldplay were raging about racist police brutality this month. The song "Trouble In Town" on their new album, released on November 22, samples racist harassment by police, while Chris Martin sings: "I get no peace, and I just get more police." The band said they wouldn't tour the album until they could find a way to do it without damaging the environment. Meanwhile, as Britain headed for the polls in a race-baiting election, political albums were released by Black British artists who have first-hand experience of racism. The new album by Kele, who once publicly called out Sex Pistol John Lydon for allegedly being racist towards him, was praised as his "most political work yet". The latest LP by London Afrobeat Collective was hailed as "one of the best of 2019's releases". And the new long-player by Michael Kiwanuka was praised by seemingly everybody, even being called "one of the greatest albums of the decade".​​​​​​ MORE>>>    

     

6. VARIOUS ARTISTS - AQUÍ NOS ESTÁN MATANDO - HERE THEY ARE KILLING US

As police cracked down on activists all over the world, from rioters in Hong Kong to anti-coup protesters in Bolivia, Chilean singer Mon Laferte took a stand against lethal repression in her home country. On the red carpet at the Latin Grammy Awards, Mon Laferte opened her jacket to reveal a message written across her bare chest: "En Chile torturan violan y matan", which in English translates to, "in Chile they torture, rape and kill". After her album, Norma, won Best Alternative Music Album, she posted a photo of her red carpet look on Instagram with the caption, "Mi cuerpo libre para una patria libre", which translates to "My free body for a free homeland". A week later, Chilean record label Imperecedero Discos released a 52-track compilation album to help raise money for the victims of repression at the hands of the Chilean state. The album, titled Aquí Nos Están Matando - Here They Are Killing Us, features punk bands from all over the world. LISTEN>>>

7. LIFE AQUATIC - NEON CORTEX 

On the other side of South America, Brazil's most popular politician, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, was freed from jail on November 8 after his detention prevented him from running in last year's Brazilian elections that made Jair Bolsonaro president. Among Lula's many supporters is US academic Noam Chomsky, who is also the subject of the song "Chomsky's Ford Galaxie" found on the debut album by Brazilian experimental hip-hop outfit Life Aquatic. "Life Aquatic is born in ABC Paulista, the urban centre of greater São Paulo, trying to represent the submergence and lack of oxygen of life in a society that makes the simple become complex," they said. "Breathing becomes a difficult task, generating suffocation and discomfort, as when you are alone and submerged in complete mismatch with your system. Our mission? Try to gain breath again so as not to lose another scuba brother to this average life that tries to swallow us every millisecond." LISTEN>>> 

8. RAISED FIST - ANTHEMS 

As the US tried to reassert its power over South America with a coup in Bolivia and continuous pressure on Venezuela, Sweden dropped its rape charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is facing extradition to the US for revealing its state secrets. On November 15, Swedish punks Raised Fist released their new album on the same day that Assange's lawyer called his extradition case "a threat to free speech worldwide". The album's title, Anthems, is no empty boast - the band capture the catchiness, heaviness and rasping vocals of AC/DC and inject that with a heady dose of leftist politics. The release followed a similarly heavy political album from fellow long-time punks, Agnostic Front. Talking about their 12th album Get Loud!, which covers everything from inequality and corruption to political manipulation, the "godfathers of hardcore" said: “We’ve always had a voice; had a lot to say. We’re always screaming for a change." LISTEN>>>

9. DAWN RAY'D - BEHOLD SEDITION PLAINSONG

Also screaming for change are Agnostic Front's fellow punks Subhumans, with their aptly-titled new album, Crisis Point. On "Poison", they yell: "When the earth dries up and the food runs out, all the money in the world won't help you out. Cancer, dementia, poverty prevention, clean up your act avoid extinction." Riffing on the same doom are folk-metallers Dawn Ray'd, with their new album, Behold Sedition Plainsong. On "Soon Will Be The Age Of Lessons Learnt", they warn: "As the ice melts and the ocean swells, all our masters are building is hell. The anticipation, the unsatisfiable hunger, the knowing but not ever knowing. As the last trees are murdered, and the insects are dying in droves, death crawls up the chain." On November 26, the United Nations declared in its annual assessment on greenhouse gases that the world will miss its chance to avert climate disaster without an immediate and all-but-impossible fall in fossil fuel emissions. LISTEN>>> 

10. CATTLE DECAPITATION - DEATH ATLAS 

At the end of the month, Australia's climate politics sank even lower as Energy Minister Angus Taylor faced jail for allegedly doctoring a document to claim that Sydney's Lord Mayor, who supports action against climate change, had spent millions on air travel. Instead of standing him aside, the Prime Minister rang the police. Summing up such dire politics were grindcore band Cattle Decapitation, with their new album, released on November 29. Describing the LP, whose artwork features the Grim Reaper carrying the burnt-out husk of the Earth on his back, vocalist Travis Ryan said: "I want people to be shocked into thinking more about their futures, their loved ones, the pain they're potentially subjecting their future generations to. Everyone just seems to live in the now with no care for tomorrow, and that's incorrect thinking, as far as today goes. Don't make tomorrow a cancelled cheque." MORE>>>

It is clear from a review of national and international literature that increasing numbers of professional practitioners participate in interprofessional supervision arrangements but that to date this form of supervision has not been extensively investigated. The research contributes to the knowledge base of interprofessional supervision practice through the exploration, description and mapping of the attributes, processes, skills and structures which underpin this practice, with particular attention to the management of difference. This qualitative research, which had four phases, was located in Aotearoa New Zealand. Phase one identified the broad regulatory and professional context for interprofessional supervision while phases two and three explored how expert informants (participants who had training and experience in supervision and who were currently in an interprofessional supervision arrangement)experienced and practised this mode of supervision. In phase four a 'framework of interprofessional supervision', developed from the findings of phases two and three, was presented to the original participants of phase two who were invited to provide feedback. The responses of the participants shaped the construction of a Map for Interprofessional Supervision. This map provides detail and parameters to this form of supervision and offers a template to guide those who are engaged in, or who wish to engage in, supervision with someone from a different profession. Key elements which underpin the Map for Interprofessional Supervision demonstrate that: interprofessional supervision is a practice in its own right which requires training and expertise; participants in interprofessional supervision work within the dual perspective of professional identity and identifying as a professional; and interprofessional supervision is an aspect of interprofessionality with three distinguishing features: membership, choice, and negotiated relationship. Finally a Diversity Model of interprofessional working is presented. Here interprofessional supervision, as an example of this model of interprofessionality, demonstrates that diversity, when chosen and valued, can clarify and reinforce professional identity and knowledge whilst at the same time be a catalyst for the development of new insights, new knowledge and new expertise.
          

Hypoxia and thermal tolerance in New Zealand triplefin fishes

 Cache   
Hypoxia and thermal tolerance in New Zealand triplefin fishes McArley, Tristan Temperature and the availability of oxygen (O₂) each have a profound influence on the metabolism of fish and play a key role in shaping the distribution and abundance of species. All fishes are exposed to at least some fluctuation in each of these environmental parameters, but few species are subjected to the extreme acute changes in O₂ availability and temperature faced by fishes inhabiting intertidal rock pools. This thesis, with a focus on intertidal species, explores the physiological responses of New Zealand triplefin fishes to variability in O₂ availability (hypoxia and hyperoxia) and increased temperature (acute and chronic exposure). Decreased O₂ availability (hypoxia) is common in rock pools and challenges the aerobic metabolism of fishes living in these habitats. In Chapter 2, the critical O₂ tension (Pcrit) - a measure of hypoxia tolerance - was compared between two intertidal and two subtidal triplefin fishes endemic to New Zealand. The intertidal species had a lower Pcrit than the subtidal species indicating adaptations to meet O₂ demands of maintenance metabolism at lower O₂ tensions. While maintenance metabolism (measured as standard metabolic rate; SMR) did not show a major functional difference between species, the intertidal species had higher maximal rates of O₂ consumption (ṀO₂,max) and higher aerobic metabolic scope (MS). The high O₂ extractive capacity of the intertidal species was associated with increased blood O₂ carrying capacity (i.e. higher Hb concentration); additionally, intertidal species had higher mass-specific gill surface area and thinner gill secondary lamellae that collectively conveyed a higher capacity for O₂ flux across the gills. The specialist intertidal species also had higher glycogen stores in both white muscle and brain tissues, suggesting greater potential to generate ATP anaerobically and survive in rock pools with O₂ tensions less than Pcrit. Overall, Chapter 2 shows that the superior hypoxia tolerance of intertidal New Zealand triplefin species is not linked to a minimisation of basal metabolic demand (SMR), but is instead associated with a maximisation in the O₂ extractive capacity of the cardiorespiratory system (i.e. ṀO₂,max, MS, Hb concentration and gill O₂ flux) and glycolytic tissue stores. Environmental stressors often occur simultaneously or in quick succession, but how animals respond to multiple stressors is not well studied or understood. Acute heat shock has previously been shown to improve subsequent low O₂ (hypoxia) tolerance in an intertidal fish species, a process known as cross-tolerance, but it is not known whether this is a widespread phenomenon. As acute heat and hypoxic stress tend to occur out of phase in intertidal rock pools, Chapter 3 specifically examined whether a New Zealand rock pool specialist, the triplefin fish Bellapiscis medius, exhibits hypoxic cross-tolerance (i.e. longer time to loss of equilibrium (LOE) and lower critical O₂ saturation (Scrit) under hypoxia) after recovering from an ecologically relevant heat shock. Non-heat shock controls had a median time to loss of equilibrium (LOE50) of 54.4 min under severe hypoxia (7% of air saturation) and a Scrit of 15.8% air saturation. However, contrary to expectations, treatments that received an initial 8 or 10°C heat shock showed a significantly shorter LOE50 in hypoxia (+8°C = 41.5 min; +10°C = 28.7 min) combined with no significant change in Scrit (+8°C =17.0% air saturation; +10°C =18.3% of air saturation). No evidence of heat shock induced cross-tolerance in B. medius was, therefore, found because acute exposure to peak temperatures resulted in an impaired tolerance to hypoxia. This is cause-for-concern because climate change will increase the frequency and intensity of heat shock events in rock pools rendering B. medius less able to cope with multiple stressors across successive low tides. Daytime low tides that lead to high temperature events in stranded rock pools often co-occur with algal mediated hyperoxia as a result of strong solar radiation. Recent evidence shows MS can be expanded under hyperoxia in fish but so far this possibility has not been examined in intertidal species despite being an ecologically relevant scenario. Furthermore, it is unknown whether hyperoxia increases the upper thermal tolerance limits of intertidal fish and their ability to withstand extreme high temperature events. Therefore, Chapter 4 measured the metabolic response (mass-specific rate of oxygen consumption [ṀO₂]) to thermal ramping (21-29°C) and the upper thermal tolerance limit (CTmax) of two intertidal triplefin fishes (B. medius and Forsterygion lapillum) under hyperoxia and normoxia. Hyperoxia increased ṀO₂,max and MS of each species at ambient temperature (21°C) and also after thermal ramping to elevated temperatures such as those observed in rock pools (29°C). While hyperoxia did not provide a biologically meaningful increase in upper thermal tolerance of either species (>31°C under all conditions), the observed expansion of MS at 29°C under hyperoxia could potentially benefit the aerobic performance, hence the growth and feeding potential etc., of intertidal fish at non-critical temperatures. That hyperoxia does not increase upper thermal tolerance in a meaningful way is cause for concern, as climate change is expected to drive more extreme rock pool temperatures in the future; this could present a major challenge for these species. Intertidal fish species face gradual chronic changes in temperature and greater extremes of acute thermal exposure through climate induced warming. As sea temperatures rise, it has been proposed that whole animal performance will be impaired through oxygen and capacity limited thermal tolerance (OCLTT, reduced aerobic metabolic scope-MS) and, on acute exposure to high temperatures, thermal safety margins may be reduced due to constrained acclimation capacity of upper thermal limits. Using the New Zealand triplefin fish (F. lapillum), Chapter 5 addressed how performance in terms of growth and metabolism (MS) and upper thermal tolerance limits would be affected by chronic exposure to elevated temperature. Growth was measured in fish acclimated (12 weeks) to present and predicted future temperatures, and metabolic rates were then determined in fish at acclimation temperatures and with acute thermal ramping. In agreement with the OCLTT hypothesis chronic exposure to elevated temperature significantly reduced growth performance and MS. However, despite the prospect of impaired growth performance under warmer future summertime conditions, an annual growth model revealed that elevated temperatures may only shift the timing of high growth potential and not the overall annual growth rate. While the upper thermal tolerance (i.e. critical thermal maxima) increased with exposure to warmer temperatures and was associated with depressed metabolic rates during acute thermal ramping, upper thermal tolerance did not differ between present and predicted future summertime temperatures. This suggests that warming may progressively decrease thermal safety margins for hardy generalist species and limit the available habitat range of intertidal populations.

224 Collingwood Street

 Cache   

Stanton Cottage, 224 Collingwood Street is an Italianate villa, built approximately 1865.

About the area

The streets around Brougham Street and Upper Collingwood Street are often known as Nelson's Dress Circle, due to their elevated position and the number of large old houses sited there. Collingwood Street is named after Cuthbert Collingwood (later Lord Collingwood and an Admiral) who was one of Lord Nelson's greatest friends.

History of the house

Designed by architect William Beatson and commissioned by William Moses Stanton in 1865, this charming cottage was built to accommodate Stanton’s mother Mary and mother-in-law Sarah James, both widows.

Stanton arrived in Nelson on the Clifford in 1842, aged thirteen, with his father William, mother Mary and four siblings. He went on to have many occupations including teacher, insurance salesman, storekeeper and publican. He became a clerk to the courts and during this time, handled the Wairau massacre depositions. By 1848 he was a full-time librarian and in 1850 he married Sarah Lee Hodgson who died giving birth to their twins. In 1853 he remarried to Ellen Elizabeth James who had come to New Zealand with her mother on the Fifeshire

The house was designed so that each of the women would have their own sitting room and bedroom but the kitchen was to be shared. The estimated cost of the construction was £697 pounds, 12 shillings.

In 1899 the cottage was bought by Percy Boland Adams, the owner of Melrose House for Joseph Busch, his manservant and gardener. Busch was a talented gardener and created a beautiful garden at the cottage as well as doing much of the tree planting at Melrose. He held the role until he died in 1937. He lived here with his first wife Sarah and baby Isobel, however Sarah died in her early twenties. He remarried and went on to have a family of four girls and two sons. 

In 1951 the house was purchased by Lucy Alborn, a young widow. The garden was smaller than the original as it had been subdivided and the house had been renovated inside but it still retained many of the charming original exterior features that she had admired as a child when she walked past. Alborn lived in the cottage for fifty-four years.

Style and Construction

Architect William Beatson had also designed William Stanton’s own house at 214 Collingwood Street and the large sections were adjacent. Beatson was a London architect who emigrated to New Zealand in 1851 and designed many of Nelson’s first churches, commercial buildings, houses and schools including the original Nelson College. He was one of the few architects in Nelson at the time who had received formal architecture training. 

The design of 224 Collingwood Street was likely inspired by the Italianate villa which was in vogue in England at the time. The design features round-headed windows which light the bedrooms and stair landing and gabled brackets and eave details repeated. It is made of the same materials as Stanton’s original house at 214 Collingwood Street but without the coat of plaster over the top.  The roof was covered with galvanised tinned iron tiles. A freer hand may have been given to the architect on this house than for Stanton’s own house and Beatson’s preference for Palladian symmetry and accent of a central focus can be seen.

  • 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.

    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)

    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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

New Zealand free camping problems

Artificial intelligence and solar-powered cameras are among the high-tech tools that are being trialled in New Zealand as ways to combat some of the negative impacts of freedom camping.

Tourism Minister Kelvin Davis has just announced a suite of measures designed to encourage responsible freedom camping, and to help councils manage travelling tourists.

This summer, at least 10 camping sites will be furnished with the artificial intelligence (AI) equipped solar-powered cameras, allowing campers to see if a campsite is full in real-time through a special app.

The website, stuff.co.nz, reports that technology is being piloted as part of the broader $8.5 million package first announced in August, which also included temporary council facilities, education and enforcement projects, and camping ambassadors.

Mr Davis said the Government's efforts have substantially reduced the freedom camping problem and he expected a reduction in complaints this summer.

"The ambassadors were probably the most effective tool for educating, giving information and doing things in a friendly Kiwi sort of way," Davis said. "Rather than using the big stick, it was more about encouragement, sharing information and being helpful, and we found that that was the most effective tool we had in the kit last year."

Stuff.co.nz reports that freedom camping has frustrated local authorities in recent years as crowds of motor-home and van-dwelling travellers descend upon scenic areas to camp, forgoing locations with facilities like toilets and rubbish bins.

A Government-appointed working group has been trying to determine fixes to problem freedom camping, beginning with a PR-blitz informing campers of New Zealand's environmental values, and moving campers on from places they shouldn't be. It will also start using the term ‘responsible campers’ instead of ‘freedom campers’.

नील वैगनर के पांच विकेट से इंग्लैंड ढेर, न्यूजीलैंड ने पहले टेस्ट में हराया

 Cache   

माउंट मोनगानुई (न्यूजीलैंड)। तेज गेंदबाज नील वैगनर के पांच विकेट की बदौलत न्यूजीलैंड ने सोमवार को यहां पहले क्रिकेट टेस्ट के पांचवें और अंतिम दिन इंग्लैंड को पारी और 65 रन से हरा दिया। इस जीत से न्यूजीलैंड ने दो मैचों की श्रृंखला में 1-0 की अजेय बढ़त बना ली है। साथ ही यह भी तय हो गया है कि टीम घरेलू सरजमीं पर लगातार सातवीं श्रृंखला में अजेय रहेगी। अंतिम सत्र में न्यूजीलैंड को जीत के लिए दो विकेट की दरकार थी। सैम कुरेन (नाबाद 29) और जोफ्रा आर्चर (30) ने नौवें विकेट के लिए 59 रन जोड़कर इंग्लैंड की ड्रा की उम्मीद बांधी।

वैगनर ने हालांकि लगातार गेंदों पर आर्चर और स्टुअर्ट ब्राड (00) को आउट करके इंग्लैंड को 197 रन पर समेटकर न्यूजीलैंड की जीत सुनिश्चित की। इंग्लैंड ने पहली पारी में 353 रन बनाए थे जिसके जवाब में न्यूजीलैंड ने नौ विकेट पर 615 रन बनाने के बाद पारी घोषित की थी। इंग्लैंड ने दिन की शुरुआत तीन विकेट पर 55 रन से की। टीम को पारी की हार से बचने के लिए इस समय 207 रन की दरकार थी।

इंग्लैंड की टीम ड्रा के इरादे से उतरी। टीम ने बेहद धीमी बल्लेबाजी करते हुए दिन के शुरुआती 41 ओवर में कप्तान जो रूट (11) का विकेट गंवाकर सिर्फ 66 रन जोड़े। लंच के बाद बेन स्टोक्स (28) का धैर्य जवाब दे गया और वह टिम साउथी की बाहर जाती गेंद को विकेटों पर खेल गए। वैगनर ने इसके बाद जो डेनली (35), ओली पोप (06) और जोस बटलर (00) को पवेलियन भेजा जिससे इंग्लैंड ने 17 रन पर चार विकेट गंवाए। वैगनर ने 44 रन देकर पांच जबकि सेंटनर ने 53 रन देकर तीन विकेट चटकाए। न्यूजीलैंड को हालांकि झटका लगा जब ट्रेंट बोल्ट सुबह सिर्फ एक ओवर फेंकने के बाद पसली में दर्द के कारण मैदान से बाहर चले गए और फिर दोबारा खेलने नहीं आए।

The optional 53 hp (39 kW) CVCC engine displaced 1488 cc and had a head design that promoted cleaner, more efficient combustion. The CVCC design eliminated the need for catalytic converters or unleaded fuel to meet changing emissions standards, unlike nearly every other U.S. market car. Due to California's stricter emissions standards, only the CVCC powered Civic was available in that state. This created a sales advantage in Honda's favor in that CVCC equipped Honda products afforded the buyer the ability to choose any type of fuel the buyer wanted, and due to emissions equipment not being damaged by using leaded fuel, the buyer could use any gasoline products available. This was also an advantage due to some regions of North America having to ration available gasoline supplies due to periodic shortages at the time. A five-speed manual transmission became available in 1974, as did a Civic station wagon (only with the 1500 CVCC engine), which had a wheelbase of 89.9 inches (228 cm) and an overall length of 160 inches (406 cm). Power for this version is 75 PS (55 kW) in the Japanese domestic market. Civic sales also increased and topped 100,000 units for this year.

 “On The Beach”
by Nevil Shute

“Nevil Shute’s 1959 novel “On the Beach” is set in what was then the near future (1963, approximately a year following World War III). The conflict has devastated the northern hemisphere, polluting the atmosphere with nuclear fallout and killing all animal life. While the nuclear bombs were confined to the northern hemisphere, global air currents are slowly carrying the fallout to the southern hemisphere. The only part of the planet still habitable is the far south of the globe, specifically Australia and New Zealand, South Africa, and the southern parts of South America.

From Australia, survivors detect a mysterious and incomprehensible Morse code radio signal originating from the United States. With hope that some life has remained in the contaminated regions, one of the last American nuclear submarines, the USS Scorpion, placed by its captain under Australian naval command, is ordered to sail north from its port of refuge in Melbourne (Australia’s southernmost major mainland city) to try to contact whoever is sending the signal. In preparation for this long journey the submarine first makes a shorter trip to some port cities in northern Australia including Cairns, Queensland and Darwin, Northern Territory, finding no survivors.

The Australian government makes arrangements to provide its citizens with free suicide pills and injections, so that they will be able to avoid prolonged suffering from radiation sickness. One of the novel’s poignant dilemmas is that of Australian naval officer Peter Holmes, who has a baby daughter and a naive and childish wife, Mary, who is in denial about the impending disaster. Because he has been assigned to travel north with the Americans, Peter must try to explain to Mary how to euthanize their baby and kill herself with the pill should he be killed on the ocean voyage.

The characters make their best efforts to enjoy what time and pleasures remain to them before dying from radiation poisoning, speaking of small pleasures and continuing their customary activities, allowing their awareness of the coming end to impinge on their minds only long enough to plan ahead for their final hours. The Holmeses plant a garden that they will never see; Moira takes classes in typing and shorthand; scientist John Osborne and others organize a dangerous motor race that results in the violent deaths of several participants. In the end, Captain Towers chooses not to remain with Moira but rather to lead his crew on a final mission to scuttle their submarine beyond the twelve-mile (22 km) limit, so that she will not rattle about, unsecured, in a foreign port, refusing to allow his coming demise to turn him aside from his duty and acting as a pillar of strength to his crew.

Typically for a Shute novel, the characters avoid the expression of intense emotions and do not mope or indulge in self-pity. They do not, for the most part, flee southward as refugees but rather accept their fate once the lethal radiation levels reach the latitudes at which they live. Finally, most of the Australians do opt for the government-promoted alternative of suicide when the symptoms of radiation-sickness appear.”

Suidani lauds govt for listing Bina Harbour

Premier Daniel Suidani.


Malaita Province Premier Daniel Suidani has applauded the national government for making the Bina Harbour Tuna processing plant project a top priority in its 2020 budget.

Mr Suidani stated this is a press release after Minister for Finance and Treasury Harry Kuma announced the priority projects for 2020.

Mr Kuma in his 2020 budget speech highlighted that Bina Harbour project and other key Malaita project which placed sixth priority project will be seriously implemented by the Democratic Coalition Government for Advancement (DCGA) government in 2020.

Mr Suidani stated the announcement is welcoming news for the people of Malaita province.

“I must thank the national government for its support toward the project.

“My government the MARA government as outlined in point 3 of the 6 points I have announced will work in support of current national projects underway in the province including this Bina Harbour project.

“My people need this development since we have been waiting for a very long time, we do not want to be told of something that may end up not materialised.”

“It is a known fact that the New Zealand Government have been helping out with the Bina project and that other donors including Australia, IFC and USA are also showing support to the project.”

“This is good news to the most populated province of Solomon Islands. It is understood that the proposed facility would process 26,950MT of fish annually and employed more than 2000 people. 

“As expected, this project will be complemented with a large commercial wharf suited to international export shipping as well as the significant fuel bankerage for the supply of fuel to the fishing vessels. The spin off from the project would surely bring development to Malaita province.” Premier Suidani said.

The RFL chief executive, Ralph Rimmer, has said Wayne Bennett could be given a new contract to lead England into the 2021 World Cup despite Great Britain’s recent disastrous tour of the southern hemisphere. The 69-year-old Australian is out of contract after the Lions lost all four games against Tonga, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

When asked if Bennett could be retained as coach, Rimmer said: “Certainly he has a chance. We shouldn’t forget what Wayne has done up until this point. We’re all hurting, but until this point we have progressed really well. We’ll take until the end of the year and there will be some recommendations from the review, which will go to the RFL board in the new year.”

Xi Jinping gập đầu giữa muôn trùng rắc rối

 Cache   
BM
Chưa bao giờ Tập Cận Bình ngập đầu giữa muôn trùng rắc rối bằng lúc này, từ vụ biểu tình Hong Kong đến “vụ án Huawei” rồi mới đây là vụ một điệp viên Trung cộng đào thoát sang Úc khai nhiều tình tiết kinh thiên động địa và hôm nay thì sự kiện Tòa Bạch Ốc ký Đạo luật Dân chủ và Nhân quyền Hong Kong. 

Chưa hết, một mặt trận ít được chú ý nhưng rất quan trọng và ảnh hưởng dữ dội đến vai trò Trung cộng tại Đông Nam Á. Đó là Đài Loan. Cần nhắc lại, trong báo cáo “Indo-Pacific Strategy Report - Preparedness, Partnerships, and Promoting a Networked Region” mà Bộ Quốc phòng Hoa Kỳ công bố ngày 1-6-2019, Mỹ đã làm Bắc Kinh điên tiết khi lần đầu tiên gọi Đài Loan là “quốc gia”, thay vì công nhận lãnh thổ này là một tỉnh của Trung cộng, như chính sách mà Bắc Kinh luôn yêu cầu thế giới “cấm được cãi”. Báo cáo trên có đoạn: “Vì các nền dân chủ Ấn-Thái Bình Dương như Singapore, Đài Loan, New Zealand và Mông Cổ là đáng tin, có năng lực cũng như là đối tác tự nhiên của Hoa Kỳ nên cả bốn quốc gia này đều đóng góp cho các sứ mạng của Mỹ khắp thế giới. Họ cũng đang thực hiện những bước tích cực trong việc duy trì một trật tự quốc tế mở và tự do”. 

BM
  
Đây là điều chưa từng có tiền lệ. Trước đó, cũng có một vụ “kỳ cục” chưa tiền lệ nữa, khi John Bolton, với tư cách cố vấn an ninh quốc gia, đã gặp một trong những viên chức quốc phòng cao cấp nhất của Đài Loan – Tổng thư ký Hội đồng an ninh quốc gia Đài Loan Lý Đại Duy (David Lee) – vào đầu tháng 5 tại Washington. Đây là cuộc gặp đầu tiên của giới chức an ninh hàng đầu Mỹ-Đài Loan kể từ năm 1979. 

BM
  
Nói đến chính sách ngoại giao Hoa Kỳ, vấn đề đạo luật, đặc biệt những đạo luật được Quốc hội đề xuất và chuẩn y, là rất quan trọng vì chúng không mang tính nhất thời mà có sức ảnh hưởng về chiến lược lâu dài. Cần nhắc lại, tháng 3-2018, Đạo luật du lịch Đài Loan (Taiwan Travel Act – TTA) với nội dung khuyến khích các cuộc gặp cấp cao giữa Mỹ và Đài Loan đã được phê chuẩn từ Tòa Bạch Ốc. Trước đó, ngoại giao Washington-Đài Bắc bị chi phối bởi Đạo luật quan hệ Đài Loan (Taiwan Relations Act-TRA), vốn chỉ cho phép giới chức cấp thấp của Đài Loan gặp Mỹ. Gần một năm sau, tháng 5-2019, Hạ viện Hoa Kỳ lại chuẩn y Đạo luật bảo trợ Đài Loan (Taiwan Assurance Act-TAA), bày tỏ ủng hộ Đài Loan trước sức ép ngoại giao lẫn quân sự từ Bắc Kinh. Khuyến khích Đài Loan mua thêm “đồ chơi” quốc phòng cũng như tham gia các tổ chức quốc tế, TAA được Hạ viện thông qua với tỷ lệ 414/0! 

BM
  
Tiếp đó, Ủy ban đối ngoại Thượng viện Hoa Kỳ cũng nhất trí thông qua (ngày 22-5-2019) dự luật ủng hộ Đài Loan “tái chiếm” vị trí quan sát viên trong Hội đồng Y tế Thế giới (cơ quan có quyền đề ra các quyết định của Tổ chức Y tế Thế giới-WHO), nơi đã không mời Đài Loan dự họp kể từ năm 2017 bởi sự cản trở từ Bắc Kinh. Một trong những “minh họa” rõ rệt nhất cho loạt diễn biến nóng hổi trong quan hệ Washington-Đài Bắc là một cơ quan ngoại giao của Đài Loan đặt tại Washington đã được đổi tên, từ “Hội đồng điều phối Bắc Mỹ” thành “Hội đồng Hoa Kỳ vụ của Đài Loan” (“Trú Mỹ quốc Đài Bắc kinh tế văn hóa đại biểu xứ”) vào cuối tháng 5-2019. Còn nữa, giữa tháng 6-2019, một thông điệp khác lại được Washington đưa ra mà giới nghiên cứu chính trị Đài Loan đã diễn giải theo chiều hướng tích cực cho họ. Đó là sự kiện tướng hưu Không quân Hoa Kỳ David Stilwell, người thông thạo tiếng Hoa và tiếng Triều Tiên, được Thượng viện chuẩn y vị trí trợ lý Ngoại trưởng đặc trách Đông Á-Thái Bình Dương. 

BM
  
Cùng với các đạo luật liên quan Đài Loan và bây giờ là Hong Kong, câu chuyện “đạo luật” từ nước Mỹ liên quan chính sách đối ngoại của họ cho thấy một điều: sức mạnh Quốc hội Hoa Kỳ. Họ không chỉ ảnh hưởng nguyên thủ của mình mà còn có thể làm nguyên thủ gần như bất kỳ quốc gia nào cũng phải ngán sợ. Tập Cận Bình có thể hô phong hoán vũ trong nước và Tập có thể so găng tay đôi với một nguyên thủ quốc gia khác nhưng Tập sẽ bất lực trong việc đối diện với một tập thể gọi là “Quốc hội Hoa Kỳ”.

25 days of Ausmas: Rem Brujin, CD, Brainheart on Aldi Australia's Look who's blown in

 Cache   

Every day an advertising creative from Australia and New Zealand will offer their own favourite Christmas campaign from over the years as we celebrate the best work from the festive period the world over and hear their views on what is best in class.

“The most Aussie Christmas Ad ever”. This statement was presented as a question in an Ad Media publication announcing the launch of Aldi’s second instalment in their ‘The more the merrier’ Christmas campaign last year. I have dispensed with the question mark, because it most definitely is. Without a doubt. Anyone who says otherwise is wrong and needs their head read. That is my unfiltered, non-considered, not open to discussion response at least. Which leaves me just 410 more words to unpack why, with a little more consideration and insight.

Christmas is a funny time in Australia. The physical environment is diametrically at odds with northern hemisphere Christmas traditions.

Yet we still follow them. Roast turkey, roast ham, Christmas pudding, and some poor uncle in a Santa Suit with sweat rivulets down the back of his legs due to the 36-degree heat. All while ‘Walking in a winter wonderland’ plays in the background. Because the core elements of Christmas (family, inclusion, giving, cheer) are beautiful and special and we Australians want that for us too. The fact that these traditions are climactically bizarre, bordering on insane, is not lost on us either.

So we have adapted them slightly to suit our world down under. Fresh prawns on ice, plump cherries, diced mangos, Santa pool ponies; that sort of thing. Not instead of, more on top of everything else. Still, we haven’t had much in the way authentic Australian Christmas stories or imagery. We don’t have a “Love Actually’, nor an “A Miracle on 34th Street”, nor carols. Actually, we do have two beautiful Christmas carols in the guise of popular songs – Paul Kelly’s “How to make gravy” and Tim Minchin’s “White wine in the sun”. I can’t sing either of them without a lump forming in my throat and the eyes misting up. Both are quintessentially Australian in sentiment, in story and in their humanity. Flawed, authentic and beautiful.

To me, Aldi’s “Santa Crashes Christmas’ 90 second advertisement is the third authentic Australian Christmas story to have that effect on me. The same central theme, ‘The joy of coming together at Christmas’, is shared by all three works. But I think what makes ‘Santa Crashes Christmas’ even more special is twofold.

Firstly, it cinematically imbues Christmas with imagery reminiscent of great iconic Australian films. Filmic aspects that remind me of movies like ‘Rabbit Proof Fence’ and ‘Mad Max’, a music score with hints of ‘The Man from Snowy River’, combined with modern ethnically-diverse casting, all serves to make this story simultaneously nostalgic and authentically current.

Secondly, it tells the story of Santa being stranded a long, long way from home, exhausted and at the mercy of a land as unforgiving and cruel as it is beautiful; being warmly welcomed by strangers, sharing in their hospitality and pitching in with their work, to create something truly special for all. That is not just the story of an Australian Christmas. It’s the story of Australia itself. The one we want to be true at least.

As a little addendum, seeing the brand line “The More the Merrier’ placed over images of Christmas hams, prawns and puddings on bus shelters across Australia in December, makes me realise that Aldi not only created the most wonderful brand ad, but also a brilliantly effective retail campaign and product strategy which has enabled them to ‘own Christmas’ in Australia.

The Road to Chookyblues. Part One Sydney.

 Cache   
Chookyblue and I started blogging within a few months of each other, twelve years ago!! A lot has happened in that time, for both of us. Some good, some bad, some wonderful. We have crafted and blogged our way through many adventures. Reading each others blogs along the way.
Recently we finally got to meet in person. But I had some other stops to make first.
I told Tony that I wanted to visit Australia for my 50th birthday, and he agreed, I knew I was onto a winner when I suggested that we go in October instead of August (My actual birth month),and visit Janice and Mick while we were there, but more about that in another post.
First stop, Sydney.
We left home in New Zealand on a beautiful warm sunny Sunday afternoon and drove to Christchurch where we booked into a hotel, but only for half a night as we had to be up just after 3am in order to catch a very early flight to Sydney.
 The plane landed at about 7am local time on Monday, so lots of time to wander around. Tony hadn't been to Sydney for about 20 years and was a little disoriented, as he said, he used to start in the docks, not mid town! He soon found his bearings and we made our way to Darling harbour where we visited the Maritime Museum. Tony was excited to discover that we could visit both a warship and a submarine. They brought back many memories for him of his time in the New Zealand navy.
Inside the museum I was fascinated by some sculptures made entirely from rubbish pulled from the oceans.
There were many pieces suspended in the entrance foyer,
 And even attached to pillars and walls.
We spent quite a lot of time at the museum before heading back into town and looking at the shops. The only purchases made were a sun hat, as I had left mine at home and some head ache tablets. 
It was a long day so after a look at the shops we had an early tea and an early night.
On the Tuesday morning we visited the aquarium. That was my treat, I do love to visit the fishies.
We got there twenty minutes before the doors were due to open, in the hopes of missing out on the long queues. We were not the only ones who thought of that, but luckily didn't have to wait long. Tony took LOTS photos. I didn't, I was too busy watching the fish.
The Dugong was very friendly and hung out at this window for quite some time. As it turned out, we had arrived at this window just before feeding time.
 We also hit lucky and turned up just on feeding time for the eagle rays too.
 If no one was waiting, a staff member would bang on the structure near the surface and very soon a ray would appear and leave very shortly after with his jaws working away at whatever had been popped into his mouth.
 It was wonderful to watch, of all the fishies I think rays are my favourites.
 They look so graceful flying through the water. Such beautiful creatures. Not just eagle rays, but all rays, large small, what ever. Love them! 
 Of course there were dozens of species of  other fish and sharks too. There was also a sea turtle, but he didn't want to pose nicely for Tonys camera. It was fun to see him though.
Last of all, a trip to see the penguins. I think they may have been Tony's favourite judging by the number of photos he took!
We spent most of the morning looking at the fish and I made sure to go around the ray tank twice. 
After lunch in town, we headed to the station, to begin part two of our journey.
I'll blog that next time.

'There's a new level of anger': the women fighting to end the 'rough sex' defence

 Cache   

The shocking Grace Millane killing has highlighted a dramatic rise in the number of murder cases in which ‘rough sex’ is the defence. Now women are speaking out, sharing their stories and campaigning for a change in the law

In the first 48 hours after the guilty verdict in the Grace Millane murder case, Fiona Mackenzie received 50 interview requests from the media in the UK, US and New Zealand. In the previous week, as Millane’s killer claimed she had died in a “sex game gone wrong”, Mackenzie, founder of We Can’t Consent to This, which campaigns against the “rough sex” defence, had managed to recruit a voluntary press officer to help with the deluge. Between them, they had juggled BBC Breakfast, ITN, Sky, Channel 5, local TV and radio stations, with Mackenzie also covering her full-time corporate job as an actuary.

“My employers have been very accommodating,” she says. “I’m still claiming that this doesn’t take up much time – though I’ve had to give up computer games and reading novels.” She’s not complaining about the extra work. “For the first half of this year, it was a real struggle to get much interest at all. I think the Grace Millane murder has really changed things.”

Smoking in pregnancy is a key factor for sudden infant death among Māori.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 11;107(11):1924-1931

Authors: MacFarlane M, Thompson JMD, Zuccollo J, McDonald G, Elder D, Stewart AW, Lawton B, Percival T, Baker N, Schlaud M, Fleming P, Taylor B, Mitchell EA

Abstract
AIM: To examine the sudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI) disparity between Māori and non-Māori in New Zealand.
METHODS: A nationwide prospective case-control study ran from March 2012 to February 2015. Exposure to established SUDI risk factors was analysed to investigate the disparity experienced by Māori. Infant ethnicity was based on mother's ethnicity. Māori ethnicity was prioritised. Non-Māori includes Pacific, Asian, NZ European and Other.
RESULTS: There were 137 cases and 649 controls. The Māori SUDI rate was 1.41/1000 live births compared to 0.53/1000 for non-Māori. Parents/caregivers of 132 cases (96%) and 258 controls (40%) were interviewed. Smoking in pregnancy was associated with an equally increased SUDI risk for Māori (adjusted OR = 8.11, 95% CI = 2.64, 24.93) and non-Māori (aOR = 5.09, 95% CI = 1.79, 14.47), as was bed-sharing (aOR = 3.66, 95% CI = 1.49, 9.00 vs aOR = 11.20, 95% CI = 3.46, 36.29). Bed-sharing prevalence was similar; however, more Māori controls smoked during pregnancy (46.7%) than non-Māori (22.8%). The main contributor relating to increased SUDI risk for Māori/non-Māori infants is the combination of smoking in pregnancy and bed sharing.
CONCLUSION: The association between known SUDI risk factors, including bed sharing and/or smoking in pregnancy and SUDI risk, is the same regardless of ethnicity. Māori infants are exposed more frequently to both behaviours because of the higher Māori smoking rate.

Mohawk’s Air.O Becomes First Unified Soft Flooring to Achieve Declare and Health Product Declaration Certifications

 Cache   

Mohawk Industries announced today at Greenbuild that the company’s Air.o Unified Soft Flooring (USF) line has achieved rigorous Declare and Health Product Declaration (HPD) certifications. Air.o has been showcased this week as part of Mohawk’s portfolio of flooring solutions designed to minimize environmental impact at the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. The Air.o display at Mohawk’s booth helped the manufacturer earn the coveted Green Exhibitor Attendee Choice award at the international trade show yesterday.

Engineered with just one material and latex-free with no “new carpet” smell, Air.o is the only 100% recyclable soft flooring available in the market. The line continues to expand to meet growing popularity demands and serve the needs of families everywhere. Air.o gives consumers greater design capabilities while offering an easy-to-clean, VOC-free option to serve their homes.

“Declare labels and HPDs help us expand our commitments more strategically and better communicate, organize and connect Mohawk’s holistic approach to sustainability across our family of brands,” said George Bandy Jr., chief sustainability officer at Mohawk Flooring North America. “The next generation is very cognizant of the types of companies and organizations with which they do business. We know that this next step in our journey will allow us to reach new customers and spread our message of sustainability further than ever before.”

Mohawk holds current and relevant certifications that illustrate its leadership in product transparency and commitment to manufacturing products that help contribute to healthy spaces. The International Living Future Institute’s Declare program provides a clear, elegant and informative "nutrition label" for building products. Declare aligns with Mohawk’s commitment to transparency in support of the Living Building Challenge's Red List and Responsible Materials Imperatives to streamline material documentation and project certification. Declare helps consumers make conscious, informed decisions.

Health Product Declaration™ (HPD), developed by the Health Product Declaration Collaborative™, is a standard format for reporting product ingredients and associated health information. HPDs objectively provide the critical information needed to support accurate supply chain disclosure and informed decisions by building designers, specifiers, owners and end users.

“Consumers want to know that a company like Mohawk has a commitment to transparency, effectiveness, performance, design and overall corporate social responsibility,” added Bandy. “It’s not just about creating better products, but also about educating our consumers at the point of sale around the types of solutions that are better for them and their families.”

Greenbuild continues through today, Nov. 22, at the Georgia World Congress Center.

Takaka airman in doomed fight with German U-Boat - by: Gary

 Cache   

'For Valour' a painting by English artist Charles Thomson depicting the 1943 Liberator bomber attack on a German submarine  

Exhibiting extreme bravery under fire is what our Victoria Cross war heroes are all about, invariably with eyewitness reports from serving comrades or superiors defining the event to get the medal awarded.

Only once during World War II was a VC awarded on the testimony of an enemy, and that was to a Kiwi airman. But the episode also involved four other Kiwi pilots, including Takaka man Flight Sergeant Terry Soper.      

The VC went posthumously to RNZAF Flying Officer Lloyd Allan Trigg. Born in rural Houhara, Northland, the 29-year-old was serving with the RAF's 200 Squadron RAF Coastal Command in West Africa when the B-24 Liberator bomber he was commanding sighted a surfacing German U-Boat on 11 August 1943 - 386 kms off the coast of Dakar.

Flying Officer Lloyd Trigg VC. 

That U-Boat, U 468, commanded by Oberleutnant Klemens Schamong, was sunk in the subsequent attack which proved fatal for the attackers as well. Trigg and his crew of seven were shot out of the sky and all died. Honours due then to Trigg's crew for going down with him like that. Two Brits, one Canadian and four other Kiwis; Flying Officer I. Marinovich of Auckland, Flight Sergeant A.J. Bennet of Wellington, Flight Sergeant L.J. Frost of Wellington, and Flight-Sergeant Terrance Soper (RNZAF # 2412908) of Takaka, who was the wireless operator/air gunner on the Liberator that day.

 

UBoat U468 Commander Oberleutnant Klemens Schamong. 

Terry, as he was known, was the son of Algernon Leslie Soper and Jean Winifred Soper (nee Vaughan) of Puramahoi near Takaka.

It was no surprise Soper joined the RNZAF, his farming family had developed a fondness for flying, even selling off 100 acres of their farm at Puramahoi to the Golden Bay County Council in March 1936 so an airfield could be developed there, the beginning of Takaka Aerodrome which exists there today.

For the Kiwis, Trigg and Soper in particular, being seconded to the RAF's 200 Squandron off West Africa must have fulfilled their wildest aviation dreams.

Their job was reconnaissance and escorting convoys, and Trigg as commander was well appreciated by his superiors, awarded the DFC in June 1943 for his 'fine operational career and setting a conspicuously good example with his keenness to fly under all conditions'. 

But things went wrong off Dakar on that fateful day. The battle was decisive, all over in a matter of minutes. The Liberator was heading back to base after an eight-hour reconnaissance when the U-Boat was sighted on the surface at 0945 hours.

Trigg immediately turned his Liberator around and swooped  down to 50 feet to come in for the attack. But the U-Boat gunners were quick off the mark, responding with sustained deck fire to score multiple direct hits on the Liberator with their 20mm guns.   

Not deterred by the state of his badly damaged aircraft now streaming a trail of fire and smoke from the tail, Trigg continued his attack. At this point he could well have pulled out of the run and crash landed on the ocean, probably putting out the fire in the process and enabling some sort of evacuation into their life raft.

But Trigg was determined. Passing directly over the turret of the submarine, the Liberator took direct flak through its open bomb doors as it dropped its "ash cans" or depth charges out of them. Their precision was perfect, two of them exploding right next to the submarine and causing catastrophic damage. It sunk in a matter of several minutes. 

The Liberator continued on for another 300 metres before exploding as it crashed into the sea with the loss of all its eight crew. Of the 42 Germans aboard the U-Boat only seven survived the sinking. Escaping chlorine gas from the sub is thought to have killed many as they scrambled up to get out, with the subsequent gruesome shark attacks costing the lives of another 13 of the U-Boat crew in the water.

An inflatable safety raft from the RAF Liberator which had somehow survived the explosion was located by some of the floundering Germans, and the U-Boat Commander and seven of his crew remained in this until spotted the following day by a RAF search plane who initially thought the men in the raft were the crew of the Liberator. They were picked up by the HMS Clarkia two days later.  

On the testimony of the U-Boat Commander Klemens Schamong to his Royal Navy captors, Flying Officer Lloyd Trigg - of Northland, New Zealand - was posthumously awarded the VC. He was a brave man who showed grim determination and  courage, as did all his crew that day. Trigg left behind his wife and two sons, a four-and-a-half and a three year old.  

The attack and sacrifice was anything but futile. One U boat could cause absolute ongoing mayhem and allied merchant sailor deaths, so getting them out of circulation was a priority. There is no doubt in my mind that the entire crew of the Navigator would have been with their captain in carrying on the attack despite the damage to their aircraft.   

Flight Sergeant Terence Soper is remembered in his hometown on the Takaka War Memorial (1939-1945), while the entire crew of the Liberator are also remembered on the RAF Malta Memorial near Floriana, which is dedicated to the 2,298 Commonwealth aircrew who lost their lives serving around the Mediterranean and have no known grave.  

Just like Flight Officer Lloyd Trigg and Flight Sergeant Terry Soper, they are all the bravest of the brave. No matter what we may think about the futility of war these days, we must never forget the sacrifices given.

Root delight as his 226 sets up England final day pushJoe Root could not hide his delight after a masterful 226 ended his run drought and gave England a much-needed boost in the second Test against New Zealand on Monday as they ended day four believing they can square the series. It took a five-wicket haul for the tireless Neil Wagner to bring England's first innings to an end at 476, a lead of 101. At stumps, New Zealand were 96 for two and needing to bat late into the final day although rain may yet have the last word with further showers forecast for Tuesday.

Buoyant Warner unfazed after world record bid cut short

Australia’s David Warner during nets.
Australia’s David Warner during nets.

MELBOURNE, Saturday -David Warner’s brilliant, unbeaten 335 in the second test against Pakistan on Saturday thrilled the Adelaide Oval crowd but a pragmatic declaration by Australia captain Tim Paine crushed hopes of a tilt at Brian Lara’s world record.

Warner became the seventh Australian batsman to bring up three figures on day two and finished with the 10th highest score of all time after his 418-ball epic. The lefthander moved just past the 334 scored by Don Bradman in 1930 and matched by Mark Taylor’s unbeaten 334 away to Pakistan in 1998.

Among Australians, Warner now ranks second only to Matthew Hayden’s 380 against Zimbabwe in 2003.

With Warner scoring at a rapid strike-rate of 80.14, Lara’s 400 against England in 2004 seemed there for the taking as the man nicknamed ‘Bull’ punished a demoralised Pakistan attack. Batting partner Matthew Wade was providing good support at the other end and there were seven wickets in the bank.

Yet with rain forecast in the coming days, sentimentality was shoved aside as Paine declared the innings closed at 589 for three, giving his bowlers a few overs before the dinner break.

The skipper may have felt exonerated when Pakistan collapsed to 96 for six at stumps in a dreadful reply.

Warner, himself, said he had no regrets but admitted he was thinking about Lara’s record as he motored past 300.

“If the boundaries were a little bit shorter, I might have taken them on a bit more,” Warner told broadcaster Fox Sports.

“Wadey kept on saying to me at the other end, let’s not run too hard and run ourselves out.”

He said he had more regrets when dismissed for 253 in Perth against New Zealand in 2015, having been in rollicking form with a fast outfield. He now holds the distinction of being one of only three Australians to score more than 250 twice, the others being Bradman and former captain Michael Clarke. – Agencies

Despite Root, Burns tons England ‘disappointed’ as New Zealand hit back

HAMILTON : Despite centuries to Joe Root and Rory Burns England expressed disappointment at stumps on day three of the second Test against New Zealand after losing late wickets in Hamilton on Sunday.

England captain Root ended his run drought with an unbeaten 114 while Burns rode his luck to post 101.

But after they took England to 201 for two, the tourists were 269 for five at stumps and still trailing New Zealand by 106.

“I enjoyed the fact I got it (hundred) but at the same time disappointed me and Rooty couldn’t stretch our partnership and get us deeper into the game,” Burn said.

“We’re disappointed to lose a couple of wickets at the back end as well.” With only five wickets remaining and 16 overs washed out by rain in the final session, England’s vision of building a healthy lead was rapidly fading.

The tempo swung away from England when Burns was run out and New Zealand followed up with the quick wickets of Ben Stokes and Zak Crawley.

“The run out got us going,” said Tim Southee who accounted for Stokes, adding that New Zealand never gave up hope despite the 63 overs it took to break the Root-Burns partnership.

“We hung in there for long enough and we were able to get those rewards late in the day for all the toil we put in.

“If things aren’t happening you keep on trying.” With Root and Burns putting on 177 for the third wicket, England found the “bat-long” partnership they had been searching for in their attempt to follow the same recipe New Zealand used to win the first Test.

But following the dismissal of Burns, Ben Stokes was gone for 26 while Zak Crawley made one on debut.

Root was under added pressure to not only guide England to a position of strength but also to end his own run dearth amid suggestions the pressure of captaincy was affecting his form.

To that end, he was in no mood to take risks as he faced 258 deliveries in six hours to reach 99, before his century came on a surprise mistiming that saw an inside edge fly past the wicketkeeper to the boundary. His 17th Test hundred was his first in 15 innings since the West Indies in February.

Burns lead a charmed life on the way to his second century when he was dropped on 10 and 19 and on 87 survived a run-out opportunity when New Zealand botched the return throw.

But two balls after reaching three figures he ambled through the first single when Root called for two and although he accelerated on the return leg he was a centimetre short when BJ Watling broke the stumps.

Stokes strayed from the “bat-long” script when he replaced Burns and compiled a brisk 26 before Southee extracted slight movement off the wicket and found an edge for Ross Taylor to hold. AFP

Who is CHE Proximity

More than ever before the medium, the message and it's sequencing are inseparable from each other.

‘Unlike any time in history, connecting the medium, the message, and its sequencing to the consumer is more vital than ever.

Connected creativity is the synchronization of strategic positioning, engaging creative, combined with the next generation of engagement planning to ensure ideas create the cut-through needed to deliver the strongest commercial performances. Today, creativity cannot be left to chance. One brand expression or big TV ad is simply not enough.

More than ever, brands need to live in culture and our consumers worlds, allowing audiences to not only consume brands, but take part in owning, creating and amplifying them. To do this, the role of influencers, publishers, the news and bought media are inseparable from each other and the expression of the idea itself. To create such work, the classic disciplines of the marketing mix – advertising, experience, PR, CRM, media, digital – must all be unified, removing P&Ls, biases and incumbency to reveal a new breed of agnostic agency, resulting in connected creativity.

At CHE Proximity, we see this as the shift from brand as advertising to brand as experience. It is as profound a change in advertising as the printing press was to the democratisation of information. We are investing our every effort into leading this transformation and in doing so, supporting the sustainability of our cherished industry as an essential ingredient of modern commerce.

This is what we call Connected Creativity.

Mohawk’s Air.O Becomes First Unified Soft Flooring to Achieve Declare and Health Product Declaration Certifications

 Cache   

Mohawk Industries announced today at Greenbuild that the company’s Air.o Unified Soft Flooring (USF) line has achieved rigorous Declare and Health Product Declaration (HPD) certifications. Air.o has been showcased this week as part of Mohawk’s portfolio of flooring solutions designed to minimize environmental impact at the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. The Air.o display at Mohawk’s booth helped the manufacturer earn the coveted Green Exhibitor Attendee Choice award at the international trade show yesterday.

Engineered with just one material and latex-free with no “new carpet” smell, Air.o is the only 100% recyclable soft flooring available in the market. The line continues to expand to meet growing popularity demands and serve the needs of families everywhere. Air.o gives consumers greater design capabilities while offering an easy-to-clean, VOC-free option to serve their homes.

“Declare labels and HPDs help us expand our commitments more strategically and better communicate, organize and connect Mohawk’s holistic approach to sustainability across our family of brands,” said George Bandy Jr., chief sustainability officer at Mohawk Flooring North America. “The next generation is very cognizant of the types of companies and organizations with which they do business. We know that this next step in our journey will allow us to reach new customers and spread our message of sustainability further than ever before.”

Mohawk holds current and relevant certifications that illustrate its leadership in product transparency and commitment to manufacturing products that help contribute to healthy spaces. The International Living Future Institute’s Declare program provides a clear, elegant and informative "nutrition label" for building products. Declare aligns with Mohawk’s commitment to transparency in support of the Living Building Challenge's Red List and Responsible Materials Imperatives to streamline material documentation and project certification. Declare helps consumers make conscious, informed decisions.

Health Product Declaration™ (HPD), developed by the Health Product Declaration Collaborative™, is a standard format for reporting product ingredients and associated health information. HPDs objectively provide the critical information needed to support accurate supply chain disclosure and informed decisions by building designers, specifiers, owners and end users.

“Consumers want to know that a company like Mohawk has a commitment to transparency, effectiveness, performance, design and overall corporate social responsibility,” added Bandy. “It’s not just about creating better products, but also about educating our consumers at the point of sale around the types of solutions that are better for them and their families.”

Greenbuild continues through today, Nov. 22, at the Georgia World Congress Center.

For more information on Mohawk’s Air.o products, visit MohawkFlooring.com or see your local Mohawk sales representative.

Star Wars show The Mandalorian set to break TV piracy records as Disney+ isn't widely available

It was kinda inevitable, really. TV series piracy is booming again, thanks to a one TV series that is availabke only in handful of countries.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure this one out. Star Wars universe has always been extrenely popular - and in recent years, even more so. In fact, the final movie in the original movie series is set to hit the movie theaters in December, 2019. Then, you create a first live action, made-for-adults TV series to the Star Wars universe, with massive budget. Series gets extremely good ratings in IMDB (pilot has the average of 9.3/10 and two other episodes have also average around 8.5/10).

Only legal way to watch the series is recently launched Disney+ service.

And Disney+ service is only available in five countries in the world.

What happens? You have a massive amount of people who are eager to watch the show, no matter what.

So, even those people who kinda dropped the whole torrenting business half a decade ago or so - when Netflix et al finally arrived to most countries, providing a legal way to binge-watch movies and TV shows - are back into the piracy game again. Disney+ is currently available only in United States, Canada, the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand.

It seems that The Mandalorian is set to break at least this year's piracy records, by far. Other major TV events of the year, such as Game of Thrones' final season were widely available through legal services, too. But with Mandalorian, if you live in, say Europe (excl. Netherlands) or in most of Asia, your only option to see the show it to get it illegally.

Quite many news sources have reported how widely The Mandalorian has been downloaded from various online services and torrent sites.

Oh. In case you have no idea what the Mandalorian is, here's the trailer:



Several European countries are set to get the Disney+ service in spring of 2020, including the UK, Germany and France.

The global slowdown shifts lower

 Cache   

Kia ora,

and welcome to Monday's Economy Watch where we follow the economic events and trends that affect New Zealand.

I'm David Chaston and this is the International edition from Interest.co.nz.

Today we lead news many key economies are struggling to find meaningful growth and expansion.

But firstly in China, both of their official PMI measures reported improvements in November. These were better than expected results. The factory one was a surprise because it moved from contraction to expansion, even it its weak. The services one was more positive, moving up to 54.4 and a solid, moderate expansion.

However, a respected analysts is saying that growth in the Middle Kingdom will fall to only +5.7% in 2020 as investment levels stay weak.

In Hong Kong, there were more demonstrations on the streets overnight. This time students were joined by the elderly who came out in support because they claim the 'job is not done'. But the rally grew quickly into tens of thousands, and then descended into violence. 

In India, their Q3 2019 economic growth is also sliding, down to +4.5% year-on-year and way below their official targets.

In Japan consumer confidence rose again in November continuing a trend that started in July and that was unexpected. But it still remains very weak. In fact, the IMF said that Japan's growth over the next two years is likely to be less than +1% in each year.

In the US, early reports are that shopping mall crowds haven't been at their usual Thanksgiving holiday levels, and that online options are strong. Some major retailers are said to be absorbing the cost of tariffs to keep prices unchanged. Not helping sentiment is that the slimmed-down 'phase one' trade deal with China still isn't done.

In Canada, their Q3 GDP growth slowed to just +1.3% above the same quarter a year ago. And that is even slower than the US which slipped to a +1.9% gain. But the Bank of Canada is not expected to change its 1.75% policy rate when they review it Wednesday night (NZT).

In Germany, their retail sales data for October was weak and way below what was expected. But at least their jobless numbers didn't weaken. Employment rose. But that might not last - Daimler said it would cut 10,000+ jobs as it shifts to electric vehicles. In transportation, going green is going to cost jobs in a major way. But Germany has dodged slipping into recession with surprise but small growth in Q3-2019.

In Australia, the RBA is signaling that buy-now, pay-later payments platforms aren't going to be allowed to prevent retailers surcharging customers for the fees they impose. This is because such rules 'no surcharge' rules raise prices for everyone including those who don't use the system.

Aussie private sector debt growth slowed in October to its weakest growth rate in almost ten years. Part of the reason is that the growth of BNPL schemes is siphoning off traditional personal credit growth and is not being counted. But there are also sharp slowdowns in both housing and business debt growth as well.

And the international media is noticing the recent New Zealand restart of government infrastructure projects, pointing out these come at a time growth is slowing and taxpayer 'investment' is required to keep it alive. It is the 'fiscal friend' that the RBNZ has been calling for.

The UST 10yr yield is unchanged at 1.77% and that is unchanged for the week. 

Gold is at US$1,464 and little-changed for the week.

US oil prices are down further to just on US$55/bbl. The Brent benchmark is just on US$62.50/bbl. Fear of demand falls is behind the sudden reduction. And the price falls comes despite OPEC output cuts.

The Kiwi dollar remains remarkably stable, now still at 64.2 USc and is essentially unchanged in a week. On the cross rates we are now at 94.9 AUc and another +½c gain in a week. In fact for November it has gained more than +2c. Against the euro we are little-changed at 58.3 euro cents. That puts the TWI-5 at just over 69.6.

Bitcoin is lower today at US$7,321 and down -5.7% from where we left it on Saturday.

After 7 year journey, new plant means yogurts will be locally made in Seychelles

 Cache   

A newly established dairy producer -- Maurilait Seychelles -- launched its production plant in the island nation last week and is offering consumers a variety of locally produced yoghurts.

The Minister of Health, Jean-Paul Adam, said it is a great achievement to have a production like this established in Seychelles.

"It adds value in our economy and also brings a product which is healthy to the market, giving a wider choice to Seychellois consumers," he said.

Adam added that this is something that is very positive.

"All of us Seychellois, when we see this product, we are happy to see written on it 'Proudly made in Seychelles'. We feel that it is something very positive in our society," said Adam.

Requiring an initial startup cost of over $2.7 million (SCR37 million), the company has modern equipment specifically designed for the production of fresh yoghurt and yoghurt drinks.

Maurilait Seychelles which is located in the industrial area of Providence on Mahe, operates under the international franchise Yoplait. Maurilait Production Ltée, is a company established in Mauritius since 1976 and member of the Eclosia Group. The group partnered with two Seychellois brothers Andre and Bertrand Rassool to set up Maurilait Seychelles Ltd. Maurilait based in Phoenix, Mauritius.

Procedures to bring Maurilait products to Seychelles started in 2012 and after seven years the project has become a reality. The construction of the factory at Providence started last year and the first products were put on the shelves on September 2.

"We met once in Mauritius with some Mauritian friends who are part of the Eclosia group. At the time, they were already exporting Yoplait to Seychelles in large quantities, and we thought why not produce it locally instead of just importing it. We carried out a market study and we found out that it would be good to introduce the business here," said Andre Rassool. 

He added that the products are already popular in Europe and other islands in the Indian Ocean.

"When you compare Yoplait with other brands already on the Seychelles' market, Yoplait is at the very top. There are other projects in the pipeline that we will announce later," said Rassool.

Employing 19 workers, the plant produces yoghurt -- plain, sweetened, vanilla, strawberry, litchi and mixed fruits -- in 125g pots. The yoghurt drinks, 'Yop', come in four flavours -- fruits and cereals, strawberry, mango and vanilla - in 250-millilitre bottles.

Contrary to long-life dairy products, the new locally-made Yoplait yoghurts contain live and active cultures, which constitute a fresh yoghurt recommended for good digestion and immune function.

The general manager of Maurilait Production, Caroline Rault, told reporters that ingredients come from the same providers as that of the factory in Mauritius.

"The milk powder comes from Europe and New Zealand and as for the fruits, they mainly come from South Africa. We are trying to develop all that we can on a national level," said Rault.

The factory is equipped with a laboratory where analysis and quality control are carried out on a day-to-day basis. To ensure sanitary safety, Maurilait Seychelles provides a traceability system from the supplier to the customers. As for any fresh product, the storage and usage instructions are clearly stated on each pot.

23. Data-Driven Workforce Planning and Org Design with Rupert Morrison, CEO at OrgVue

 Cache   

Our guest this week is Rupert Morrison. A native New Zealander and rugby fanatic who grew up on a sheep farm, but off the field, Rupert is leading the way in data-driven organisational planning as CEO of OrgVue. It was in Rupert's years as a management consultant, frustrated by the many tedious hours spent building models in PowerPoint and Excel that were unsustainable for his clients that drove him to build his own solution in OrgVue, a SaaS platform for workforce analytics and modelling.

So impassioned. He's also authored a Chartered Management Institute, shortlisted book of the year on data driven organisation design.

We'll spend much of today's episode in conversation about the following topics:

  • How HR needs a serious step change in order to manage the business and not just Human Resources in times of change
  • We look at why finance is often stepping in on workforce planning and how HR must partner with them
  • We look at the role analytics plays in shaping the future workforce
  • As with all our guests on the podcast, we also look into the crystal ball and ponder what the role of HR will be in 2025

This episode is a must listen for any HR professional who wants new ideas, wants to add value to their organisation, and wants a voice at the board level, not just lip service. I'm sure listeners will enjoy Rupert's thinking on some of the most pivotal and challenging issues that HR isn't addressing.

Uganda and Rwanda lead East Africa in switch to electric cars

 Cache   

Uganda and Rwanda are racing ahead of their East African neighbours in the global switch to electric motoring, even as infrastructure shortcomings limit investments in the emerging sector. Both Kampala and Kigali have unveiled electric vehicle assembly plants in the past two months, blazing the regional trail with Kenya and Tanzania only making baby steps toward embracing the new technology. Uganda’s state-owned Kiira Motors Corporation has so far shown the biggest ambition in the region by building two battery-powered cars and a solar electric bus. The electric bus, called the Kayoola Electric Vehicle Series (EVS), has been built using Kiira Motors home-grown green mobility technologies while partnering with Chinese Equipment Manufacturer, Motor Co. Ltd. The buses can cover a distance of 300km under a single charge and have a capacity of 90 passengers (49 sitting and 41 standing), compared with the diesel engine ones which have a capacity of 65 passengers. Last year Uganda committed nearly Ush24 billion ($6.4 million) to put the first fully home-made car on the road. The amount is part of a planned Ush145 billion ($39 million) spending over four years, 2018 to 2022. In Rwanda, German automaker Volkswagen started assembling electric vehicles in Kigali in October this year, with the German power equipment firm Siemens planning to set up 15 charging stations in the Rwandan capital. This comes after a local Rwandan firm, Ampersand, started selling electric bikes powered by batteries that can last for about 75km of riding. East Africa’s uptake of electrical vehicles however remains extremely low compared to global leaders, according to Global EV Outlook report 2019. Lack of investment in charging infrastructure and absence of fiscal incentives such as subsidies and rebates on vehicle acquisition taxes, and lower toll or parking fees are to blame, the report launched by the International Energy Agency states. Measure It notes that scaling up of EV adoption in the region requires measures that provide incentives to increase the availability of vehicles with zero and low tailpipe emissions including massive investments in charging infrastructure installations on highways and in buildings. “We must address the issues of infrastructure and energy because these vehicles need energy and space for charging. The government should also consider tax incentives to attract investors and even buyers of electric vehicles,” said the Group chief executive of Nairobi-based motor dealer Simba Colt, Dinesh Kotecha, in an interview. In Kenya, Finnish firm EkoRent introduced a fully electric taxi dubbed Nopia Ride last year. The firm has installed five charging stations in three locations, including the Two Rivers Mall, the Hub Karen and Thika Road Mall. The Tanzanian government last year approved an initial roll-out of electric Safari vehicle at its flagship national park of Serengeti in an effort to reduce gas emissions. The Mount Kilimanjaro Safari Club became the first tour company in Tanzania to release a 100 per cent electric Safari cars in the region. Tanzania is reportedly seeking to power its electric cell driven vehicles through mass production of graphite minerals, with plans to build four of such factories in the country. In Ethiopia plans are underway for a local electric vehicle assembler—Tom Renewable Electric Bike Assembly & Sales—to start production in the country. The electric vehicles can go up to 40Km/h and are charged using standard 220v electric outlets. The vehicles take between four and six hours to get fully charged and can travel up to 60km on one charge. It is estimated that Ethiopia spends $3 billion annually to import fuel, pushing its annual spending up by 10 per cent. Japanese Firm Mitsui and Co. The company in April made a successful trial for a three-wheels electric car in Addis Ababa. The electric car called ‘E-trike ‘has five dedicated batteries, each with a capacity to go 80 kms with a single charge. The company has plans to establish an assembly plant in Ethiopia. Two decades ago, the world decided it was going electric and in 2009 a multi-governmental policy forum was established under the Clean Energy Ministerial to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles worldwide. The CEM consists of 24 nations and the EU, who together account for 90 per cent of all investment in clean energy in the world and 75 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. So far 13 countries are participating in the EVI including Canada, Chile, China, Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and UK. Electric mobility is expanding at a rapid pace globally, with the total electric car fleet exceeding 5.1 million last year, compared with 3.1 million in 2017. China remains the world’s largest electric car market, followed by Europe and the US, while Norway is the global leader in terms of electric car market share. By  The Eastafrica

'OK, Boomer' and the church

 Cache   

By Allen T. Stanton

The phrase “OK, boomer,” entered the world, like all good memes, through the newest social media platforms. Inspired by a silly song, the phrase has become a shorthand quip Generation Z and Millennials use to express frustration with the perceived out-of-touch views of baby-boomers.

The quip took on new heights recently when a talk radio host, himself a “boomer,” called the phrase ageist and bigoted, equating it to using the N-word. The ridiculousness of that comparison aside, his comment attracted a decent amount of attention. The phrase, “OK, boomer,” once relegated to memes, now found itself being discussed in national publications, on major news networks, and even being used in New Zealand’s parliament.

A debate sprang up. Is it rude of Gen Z and Millennials — described as selfish, lazy, overly sensitive, and accused of killing all things from Applebee’s to department stores — to likewise denigrate their elders? Or, is it a harmless parody of a typical generational divides, a modern day version of the 1960’s “Don’t trust anyone over 30”?

I am both young (a firm member the Millennial generation) and look younger than I am. When I started my job at our small college, a colleague asked me if I was excited to begin my freshman year. Once, when I arrived to lead a continuing education event held in a larger church, the kind volunteer at the front desk informed me that the youth pastor was unavailable, but that I was welcome to schedule an appointment for another time.

By virtue of my job, I am almost always the youngest person in the room, often by several decades. I’ve lost track of the number of times that I’ve walked into a meeting only for someone to say, “Oh, I thought you’d be older.” Aside from the various quips about being and looking young, I’ve learned that in general I need to always overprepare before I make a suggestion or a proposal. Otherwise, my suggestions will be met with a “When you have more experience, you’ll understand why that won’t work.”

That dismissal is not uncommon. When we elected delegates this summer, all of the Annual Conference sessions that I attended had a moment where someone urged “experienced leadership.” Meanwhile, younger electors insisted that we needed “fresh perspectives.”

There is an unmistakable tension between generational leaders, and it flows deeper than the worship wars of the 1990s and early 2000s. Who gets to offer their voice? When does experience count as a positive, and when does it prevent us from recognizing what new thing can happen? When do we need a fresh perspective, and when does that perspective betray a deep naivete and a failure to think through implications?

My wife and I volunteer as the youth leaders at our church, which I always find refreshing. Despite working at a college, my day job has me interacting with students infrequently, almost never as part of my given responsibilities. My work interacts more with pastors and community leaders, frequently asking how best to adaptively lead our institutions in changing environments. My work with our youth group is a refreshing way to hear new perspectives, to see how our middle and high schoolers are conceiving of and living out their faith, absent the cynicism that frequently enters into the “adult meetings.”

A few weeks ago, we held Youth Sunday, where the youth group leads both of the worship services. They select the music, the themes, serve as liturgists, and occasionally even preach. This year, they selected the story David and Goliath as our theme, driven by the obvious lesson of a young David achieving a victory for all of his people, a victory that the older generations could not win.

Afterward, I was approached by an older member of the church, who lamented that those types of messages and themes were tiresome and frustrating. “It feels like everyone is saying to my generation, ‘Sit down, shut up, but keep funding everything.’”

To be fair, their opinion was the minority, and in fact the only complaint someone voiced to me. Yet, like most criticism, it was the one that really stuck with me, particularly as “OK, boomer” broke into a national conversation.

I do not think it’s true that younger generations want our senior colleagues to “sit down, and shut up,” as the lone complainer stated. There is, though, an earnest frustration that younger voices are not present in the conversation.

Conversations require a natural flow of listening, periods of silence where we take in other information, perspectives, challenge our own assumptions, and shape what happens next. Being the youngest person in the room has shown me that often, my age positions me in a place of being talked to, a perceived student waiting to be taught by someone with more years. I overprepare each proposal and recommendation precisely because I want to be seen as a peer rather than a student. My senior colleagues, I have noticed, are freer to offer off-the-cuff suggestions; their general experience affords them a louder and more substantial voice, regardless of their research, preparation, or even experience with the particular issue at hand.

At the same time, I am not naïve enough to think that my ideas are sufficient on their own. I lack the institutional and social memories that drive an organization. I am often unaware of the subtle nuances that dot meetings and decisions. I am under no illusion that fresh perspectives on their own are sufficient to build either a functioning movement or an institution.

There is a reason I seek out and speak with mentors who have more professional experience than I do. I learn from their experiences what I can do, what hasn’t been done, and what to avoid. The mentor relationships that I maintain are ones where my ideas are taken seriously, but questioned and sharpened. My mentors are people who push me to make my ideas into something, helping them take shape so that they can transform into something useful.

Those conversations require a certain amount of trust. My mentors must trust that I am competent in my role, trust that I have the best intentions for the institution in mind, and trust that I will ask for help when I need it. They need to know that I want to continue the good work that they have begun, which is generally why I select them as mentors.

Likewise, I trust that my mentors genuinely want to empower me to lead, that they will listen to my ideas, that they will ask important questions along the way so that I can better discern what I need to do, and that after considering their advice, they will support my efforts, joyful when it goes well, and helpful in figuring out how to be better when I fail.

The question in our church’s generational divide is not whether baby boomers should give up their leadership roles for lack of new ideas, or whether young adults have the experience to lead. Such reductive thinking does us no good. Rather, we should be exploring how to support those mentorships and relationships that support empowering the next generation to adapt and lead, share important institutional knowledge, and in turn learn from and utilize new insights and new ideas to help us engage our faith in the world.

We don’t need more lectures or dismissals about a lack of experience, and neither do we need to forget the institutional memories that have shaped our church. Adaptive leadership requires both the wisdom of experience and the insight of a fresh perspective. Both, after all, are vital for the future of the church. 


          

Paul Blair: Schools investment the beginning of big infrastructure spend

 Cache   
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says her $400 million spending announcement for almost all schools in the country is just the beginning of what is expected to be a sizable Government spending spree.
But Ardern is giving nothing away as to which areas of the economy are next in line for a fiscal boost from the Government.
Speaking to party faithful at Labour's annual conference in Whanganui yesterday, Ardern capped off the weekend by announcing the sizable funding package.
The overall package, which is the largest spend on school infrastructure in 25 years, works out to be about $700 per student and will benefit more than 2000 schools across the country.
"Nearly every school and community in New Zealand will benefit from this windfall investment. I'm proud that students and teachers will be the first to benefit from our infrastructure upgrade."
Schools can expect to get between $50,000 and $400,000 each, depending on the size of their role, to spend on infrastructure projects.
That includes fixing classrooms and making them more modern, replacing roofing and guttering and resurfacing paved areas.
The announcement has been well received by teachers and principals.
Whanganui City College is receiving just over $200,000 and its principal, Peter Kaua, said the money was a "great Christmas present".
It means the school is able to bring forward projects that have been on the backburner for years, he said.
For example, the "18th-century" style classrooms will be getting a modern revamp, Kaua said.
But critics, such as National Leader Simon Bridges, said the Government was full of spin and the funding was "business as usual" masquerading as a new spending announcement.
Ardern, however, rubbished this and said it was a "significant" package.
She said it had an added economic benefit, too.
The Reserve Bank has been warning of an economic slowdown and has been calling for the Government to spend more money to boost economic activity.
Both Ardern and Finance Minister Grant Robertson denied they were strong-armed into spending by the bank's Governor, Adrian Orr.
But Ardern did say it was "patently obvious" that the $400 million – which schools have two years to spend – would have a clear economic benefit.
Most of the projects many of the schools will use the new money for are already planned and ready to go – "this will enable those projects to get underway soon," she said.
She said the money to fund the school infrastructure spending spree would come from borrowed money.

On Saturday, Robertson said the Government had a "once in a lifetime" opportunity to borrow more money while interest rates were at an all-time low to help pay for a "significant" spending plan for key infrastructure across the country.
He said the Government would reveal the full detail of the full plan at its economic and fiscal update in mid-December.
Asked for a hint as to what's next, Ardern wasn't playing ball.
"Just a handful more sleeps," she told reporters.
Meanwhile, she said she was happy with how the conference as a whole went and said it was "overwhelmingly positive".
In fact, she ranked it a 10 out of 10 when asked for a rating.
But it did not come without its challenges.
The dark cloud of how the party dealt with allegations of sexual assault and criticisms over its handling of that process loomed over the conference.
Those criticisms ultimately led to the resignation of former Labour president Nigel Haworth last month.
Ardern addressed these issues in her opening speech on Friday night – albeit not explicitly referencing the saga itself.
"We are not a perfect organisation," she said.
"We have learned some incredibly important lessons and through all of that, I know something that we must work harder at is making sure our place is one that is safe and positive for every single member to participate in."
MP Poto Williams was in charge of a "first principles" look at the culture of the party as a wh...
          

Claire Szabo elected new Labour Party president

 Cache   
Auckland woman Claire Szabo has been elected the new president of the Labour Party after beating two other candidates in a contest at the party's conference in Whanganui.
She is the chief executive of Habitat for Humanity, a charity which builds houses for people on low incomes.
She beat Tane Phillip, the party's senior Māori vice-president, and Lorna Crane of the Westport branch.
The vacancy was created after the resignation of Nigel Haworth in September.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made it clear publicly she was dissatisfied with his handling of sexual assault allegation against a Labour staffer and volunteer, which is the subject of two investigations, one into the complaint and another into the handling of it.
Szabo's pitch in the conference programme says she would "deal capably with the upcoming investigation reports".

The vacancy was created after the resignation of Nigel Haworth in September.
She would also "ensure organisational performance with adequate finances, focused teams, a clear plan and accountability to each other".
Szabo was Labour's candidate on the North Shore in 2014 and was No 38 on the list that year.
She and her husband live in Maungakiekie and have two children, a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old.
She grew up in Papakura and describes herself a Hungarian-Kiwi.
"As the daughter of a refugee and a nurse, the wife of a teacher, and the working mum of two small children, I understand that everyday life can have its challenges," she said in her written statement to conference delegates.
"Mum worked night shifts and dad worked for the council. We lived in a council-owned house which we eventually bought.
"This not only helped my family but taught me about the difference housing and home ownership can make."
She has a music degree from Auckland, an education degree from Trinity in Dublin, a degree in commerce and administration from Victoria, and a masters in public administration from Harvard.
At Habitat for Humanity, she oversaw the operations of 11 charities that delivered housing to low-income people in New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and Nepal.
 
          

Chris Hipkins: What you need to know about $400 million funding boost for schools

 Cache   
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has unveiled a $400 million spending plan to help pay for "much-needed" infrastructure investments in schools across New Zealand.
Here's a brief guide on all you need to know about what's going on.
How much?The total one-off cash injection is $396 million, or about $700 per student. The amount per school differs depending on the roll; but every school on the list will get at least $50,000 or up to $400,000.
Who gets it?Almost every school in New Zealand – some 2050 state schools will get a piece of the $400 million pie, provided they were built before 2015.
What will the money be spent on?
Infrastructure. The Government made the money available for schools to bring forward any projects, such as getting a new roof or new classrooms.
When can schools start spending?As soon as they're ready to go. If schools have projects they want to start, the Government wants them to start as soon as they can. Schools have two years to spend all the money they are allocated.
Where is this $400 million coming from?It's likely a lot of it will be coming from borrowing. The Government says since interest rates are so low, now is a good time to borrow money to fund infrastructure spending.
Is there more spending to come?Yes. The Government has made it very clear it has a pipeline of projects it plans to announce next month. But until then, top ministers are saying nothing about where the money is going next.

Barry Soper: Winston Peters faces more questions over NZ First foundation

Winston Peters has more questions to answer after leaked documents show he was in on the discussions about how the New Zealand First foundation was set up.
The Electoral Commission is looking at reports the party filtered donations through the foundation.
Winston Peters has been at pains to stress it as a party issue, and not one he's across as the Parliamentary leader.
Newstalk ZB political editor Barry Soper told Mike Hosking the issue is likely to continue to hang over Peters.
But he says ultimately it's up to the Electoral Commission to decide if there's been any wrongdoing.
"If politics is about perception, the perception is the party is  all over this, even if Winston Peters says the party is arms length from it.
"I think you will see a lot more to be drip fed, but the place for this to be decided to find out whether or not it's legitimate is the electoral commission."

June Ranson: Immigration NZ accused of 'extreme vetting' to limit numbers

 Cache   
The immigration industry says officials are using what one lawyer described as Donald Trump-style "extreme vetting" to limit immigration numbers.
Immigration representatives say bureaucratic tactics are being used to slow down residence processing, a claim Immigration New Zealand (INZ) denies.
New residents fell to the lowest levels since the turn of the century this year despite a sharp increase in applications.
The number of residence applications rose from a low of 15,000 in April last year to 35,000 last month, according to figures from the INZ website.
The body that represents immigration lawyers and advisers, the Association for Migration and Investment, said it was concerned at the visa process slowdown and whether there were ulterior motives for it.
"When a case officer can come back and ask for any additional information, you'd think they'd come back and ask for all the things extra they need," its chairwoman June Ranson said.
"The problem is, you give them that, and then it's almost as if they invent another question. Rather than wrapping it all in together, they go backwards and forwards - it's almost like you've got a new penpal, and they want to keep in touch with you.
"That is totally inefficient, but it is happening, and it just drags out the application so you wonder if there's ulterior motives to it."
Immigration lawyer Richard Small said there was a growing culture of "extreme vetting" alongside a decrease in discretion in decision-making.
American President Donald Trump took office promising to enact an "extreme vetting" immigration system.
American academics say having been blocked on building a wall with Mexico to limit immigration numbers, the Trump administration was using the "invisible walls" of long processing times and administrative changes to make it harder for immigrants to work, settle and visit family there.
Case officers in New Zealand were asking for information they did not usually request and which were sometimes not contained in immigration instructions, said immigration adviser Toni Alexander.
"I had to remind an officer over and over that a medical was cleared, for instance, now when there should be no further obstacles, she has decided to submit a request for an NZ police clearance, a request which should have been made a very long time ago. A police clearance can take six weeks - so it is just a delaying tactic.
"We're frequently told [by case officers] 'oh well, my technical adviser told me to ask for this'. So they're being instructed from above and it's a process of slowing down applications because technical advisers are senior people, and they know the instructions very well, as well as we do."
Immigrants had been waiting so long that even their extended temporary visas were now expiring, she said, adding expense and inconvenience.
They were being asked to resubmit evidence that had become outdated because of the delays.
INZ border and visa operations general manager Nicola Hogg said in a statement there had been no attempt to slow visa processing.
"New Zealand continues to be an attractive destination and application volumes have been increasing steadily across all categories," she said.
"We are also seeing an increase in the level of risk and complexity in applications.
"Certain applications are always going to take longer to process because of the risk factors present."
There were two main stages when applicants were asked for additional information: when the application was first received and after it was allocated to a case officer.
"However, sometimes when we receive information, we need to make an additional request for further information - for example, if the information supplied is insufficient to demonstrate immigration requirements are met," she added.

Ashley Church: Property commentator criticises Reserve Bank's mortgage restrictions

 Cache   
At least one commentator says the Reserve Bank's decision to leave the Loan to Value Ratio unchanged was the wrong move.
It means most first home buyers still need a deposit of 20 percent and investors need 30 percent.
OneRoof's Ashley Church told Mike Hosking in 2013 the Reserve Bank promised LVRs would lower house prices and more recently claimed they'd saved the market from risky borrowers.
However, Church says there's no correlation between risky borrowing and reducing the number of loans in the market.

Kirk Hope: Government's plans to protect vulnerable contractors criticised

 Cache   
There are doubts about the effectiveness of the government's plan to improve contractors' rights.
There have been increasing reports of vulnerable contractors working long hours, earning less than minimum wage, and having no power to negotiate better arrangements.
One of the government's options is to extend the rights of some contractors so they can bargain collectively about their terms of employment.
But Business New Zealand chief executive Kirk Hope told Mike Hosking collective bargaining wouldn't suit people in the gig economy.
"They've already looked at a little bit with the Hobbit Law and it didn't work that well, and I think that's quite a challenging area they will have to deal with if they want to go down that path."
He says only few contractors who are negatively affected, so the rules don't need to be changed entirely.
"We'd say really look at the labour inspectorate and target some of their activities to ensure those baddies can be identified and action can be taken."

 Cache   
A special police unit to tackle gangs akin to the Strike Force Raptor team in Australia has been given the cold shoulder by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
The unit for New Zealand police was pushed strongly by the National Party as one of the main proposals in its law and order discussion document, released yesterday.
National leader Simon Bridges said the unit would be modelled on the Strike Force Raptor force in New South Wales, which handled all gang-related incidents.
It could check for liquor licences if booze was served at a gang pad, inspect tax records for welfare fraud, take away drivers' licences if traffic fines were unpaid, and use council rules to shut down gang clubhouses for shoddy workmanship or unconsented work.
The Raptor team also enforced a law that made it illegal for certain gang members to hang out with other gang members.
But Ardern shunned the idea.
"Our police already do incredible work to combat the issue of gangs," she told reporters today.
"We already have organised crime units, we have specialists within New Zealand police on the issue of gangs."
She said of the 1800 new police officers this parliamentary term, 700 are tasked with tackling organised crime and gangs.
"We should acknowledge that our New Zealand police already do a fantastic job there."
A former National MP has also dismissed the justice policies.
Safe and Effective Justice Advisory Group head and former courts minister Chester Borrows told Mike Hosking there are different types of offenders, and the tough stance won't work for all of them.
"I can see some really good incentives there around, for instance, changes to clean slate and those sorts of things, but other things I don't like and I don't think they'll work."
His says his former party's tough stance is unlikely to work.
"91 per cent of people in our prisons with diagnosable mental health disorders or dependencies on drugs or alcohol, but DHB's aren't in charge of health in our prisons, Corrections are, and they aren't talking with one another."
Figures released by Police Minister Stuart Nash show the total number of patched gang members in New Zealand has increased by 26 per cent since October 2017.
National also proposed a ban on gang patches from public places, revoking parole for gang members who return to gangs on release, and creating new sentences for violent gang crime.
It supports greater police powers to search the homes and cars of gang members for firearms. This is similar to the Government's proposed Firearms Prohibition Orders, except these do not target gang members but violent, dangerous people.
"The Government I lead will harass and disrupt gangs every single day I am prime minister, with the single-minded goal of eliminating them," Bridges said yesterday.
National's proposals raise human rights issues including freedom of movement, freedom of association, freedom of expression, the presumption of innocence and the right to be free from unreasonable search.
Other proposals include:

No parole for a murderer who won't say where a body is.
No early release for offenders who don't have NCEA Level 2 literacy and numeracy.
Requiring Corrections to notify local schools 48 hours before the release of a sex offender into a community, or within 72 hours of housing the sex offender in a new residential address.
Increasing penalties for those caught supplying synthetics to eight years' jail - though the Government's new drug lawallows life imprisonment for synthetic drug dealers.
Enabling cumulative sentences for offences such as murder, manslaughter, rape and sexual violation, and also if a criminal offends while on bail, in custody, or on parole.

 
          

Phil Stocker: British supermarket chain to stop stocking NZ Lamb

The British meat industry is defending a supermarket chain's decision to stop stocking New Zealand lamb.
Waitrose will sell British-only lamb from 2021.
New Zealand exporters fear it could be a sign of growing protectionism in Britain after Brexit.
But British National Sheep Association chief executive Phil Stocker told Mike Hosking Brits want to eat locally-produced food.

Vaughn Couillault: At least a third of kids are vaping - principals

 Cache   
High-decile schools say at least a third of their students are trying vaping - and they want quick action to regulate it.
The Secondary Principals' Association and 36 individual principals of mainly high-decile schools have signed an open letter with health groups urging the Government to regulate the burgeoning industry.
Auckland Secondary School Principals' Association president Richard Dykes, of Glendowie College, said teenagers who had never smoked tobacco were being lured into vaping by advertising that was targeting young people.
"I would guess at least 30 to 40 per cent of our students have at the very least tried it. Some principals are reporting more than 50 per cent," he said.
"It tends to be the slightly higher-income communities. That probably reflects the price. The fear is that it will spread to other people as the cheap knock-offs come in from Asia."

The Ministry of Health's 2018-19 NZ Health Survey, released this month, shows that 25 per cent of teens aged 15 to 17 have vaped with an electronic cigarette at least once, up from 19 per cent last year.
The number in the age group vaping at least once a month doubled from 1.7 per cent to 3.4 per cent and is now comparable to the numbers smoking tobacco cigarettes (3.8 per cent).
Associate Health Minister Jenny Salesa said a year ago that legislation would be introduced this year to restrict the way vaping products were displayed in shops and possibly ban vaping in bars, restaurants and workplaces.
But the bill has still not appeared. The open letter from principals and health groups says the delay "is not in the best interests of children or smokers who want to stop".


"Delays in tabling a bill for debate continues to leave the vaping market open for commercial exploitation, rather than setting clear parameters for how products are marketed, sold and used," the letter says.
"This gap in legislation is being filled and exploited by fierce competition. Market forces are now defining the vaping environment in New Zealand, as opposed to this environment being defined by the need to protect health."
The letter was organised by Action for Smokefree 2025 (ASH) and signed by the heads of the Medical Association, Cancer Society and other health groups and academics as well as principals.

Prof Robert Beaglehole: "There are issues around quality control of the vaping material, advertising and promotion, and where you can do it." Photo / File
ASH chair Professor Robert Beaglehole said the groups did not want to ban vaping, but wanted regulations to ensure that it was taken up by people wanting to quit tobacco smoking rather than by non-smokers.
"The evidence is that vaping is perhaps 95 per cent less harmful than cigarette smoking," he said.
"Vaping is the inhalation of nicotine dissolved in liquid, often with flavours. You get the nicotine but you don't get the deadly constituents of burnt tobacco.
"It works. It helps people stop smoking, and it's much cheaper because cigarettes in New Zealand are so expensive.
"But it's unregulated in New Zealand. We desperately need legislation and then regulation to encourage people who smoke and want to stop to vape, but discourages non-smoking young people from vaping."
He said there was only a "slight risk" that people would become addicted to nicotine through vaping, but non-smokers should still be discouraged from trying it.
"There are issues around quality control of the vaping material, advertising and promotion, and where you can do it," he said.

Prof Doug Sellman: "We should see it as a medicine, not as a recreational product." Photo / File
Professor Doug Sellman of the National Addiction Centre agreed that the risk of addiction from vaping was "very small", but supported the call for regulation.
"It should be made available through pharmacies....
          

Comment on Ubiquitous Coincidence or Deliberate Targeting? The New Science of Mind, Brain, and Education by Robin

 Cache   
I have laid out some of the reasons why I believe that the desire not to teach reading properly was tied to a desire to limit and control the Ideas in circulation for the typical member of an age cohort. We then know what Ideas and Images guide perception and control the interpretation of experiences. Very useful if transformation of the student at the neural level of their KBVAF is desired. https://whatedsaid.wordpress.com/2019/11/30/the-biography-of-a-central-idea/ from New Zealand came in today <blockquote>Each IB PYP unit of inquiry is based on a meaningful, transferable, conceptual idea that offers possibilities for trans-disciplinary inquiry. Sometimes a central idea comes easily, once we know our conceptual lenses. Sometimes it’s the result of sustained collaborative play with words. Sometimes we know a central idea isn’t perfect, but it’s the best we can do. On occasion, we know it isn’t perfect but we don’t mind, because it expresses the right message and we care more about the sentiment than the rules.</blockquote> Read that carefully and then this-- <blockquote>As the ideas from the book began to take hold in our Year 6 community, students explored the notion of Ubuntu, an African concept which translates approximately as I am because we are, and the learning began to look less and less like traditional school and more of a transformative experience for learners and teachers alike. Seeing how the learning was unfolding, one of the teachers suggested an idea for a whole school inquiry for next year: ‘A community collaborates to create change’. Teachers of the lower grades suggested that a more appropriate version for the younger learners might be ‘Individuals collaborate to build community’. Analysing the data gathered from teachers’ reflections for our self study, the Teaching and Learning team noticed a pattern. Many of the suggestions and wonderings revealed the idea of building cohesion as an opportunity for growth, be this in terms of encouraging connections between early years and primary, increasing flow of learning time, building a stronger sense of belonging or improving our partnerships with parents. Perhaps the whole school central idea might be ‘Cohesion empowers community’ or ‘Building cohesion strengthens community’, strong possibilities and yet, while we are not afraid to introduce difficult vocabulary to our youngest learners, not quite child friendly enough…</blockquote> What you are asking of students is contrary to what they have been told, what they have experienced, and what they have felt, repeatedly. They want the world to change for them. What makes the world work successfully and what fractures it most every time were never part of the upbringing of most.

Suidani lauds govt for listing Bina Harbour 

 Cache   
Premier Daniel Suidani.


Malaita Province Premier Daniel Suidani has applauded the national government for making the Bina Harbour Tuna processing plant project a top priority in its 2020 budget.

Mr Suidani stated this is a press release after Minister for Finance and Treasury Harry Kuma announced the priority projects for 2020.

Mr Kuma in his 2020 budget speech highlighted that Bina Harbour project and other key Malaita project which placed sixth priority project will be seriously implemented by the Democratic Coalition Government for Advancement (DCGA) government in 2020.

Mr Suidani stated the announcement is welcoming news for the people of Malaita province.

“I must thank the national government for its support toward the project.

“My government the MARA government as outlined in point 3 of the 6 points I have announced will work in support of current national projects underway in the province including this Bina Harbour project.

“My people need this development since we have been waiting for a very long time, we do not want to be told of something that may end up not materialised.”

“It is a known fact that the New Zealand Government have been helping out with the Bina project and that other donors including Australia, IFC and USA are also showing support to the project.”

“This is good news to the most populated province of Solomon Islands. It is understood that the proposed facility would process 26,950MT of fish annually and employed more than 2000 people. 

“As expected, this project will be complemented with a large commercial wharf suited to international export shipping as well as the significant fuel bankerage for the supply of fuel to the fishing vessels. The spin off from the project would surely bring development to Malaita province.” Premier Suidani said.

Why This Church Crowd Has a Lot to Answer For

 Cache   

First, they told us our language was too churchified and we would need to jettison such terms as justification, sanctification and washed in the blood.

I remember Arthur Blessit. The hippie-looking, jive-talking, cross-carrying brother in Christ took the young churches by storm. We stayed most of the night with Arthur at the local youth hangout witnessing for Christ, trying to look and sound cooler than the teens, picking up the drug culture's language in an attempt to bring the gospel into a foreign land. Heaven alone knows whether we did good.

Then, they came at our music. Away with organs and pianos, and in with drum sets and keyboards and guitars. Amplification on steroids and heavy metal, ear-assaulting, nerve-rattling instrumentations were not far behind.

No one is insisting that pipe organs and upright pianos are scriptural. But when ushers have to hand out ear plugs at the door, something is bad wrong.

Next, we had to get rid of the hymnals and go to screens, forget the hymns and bring in the latest choruses.

Some of those choruses are great. But so were many of the hymns. Why did the church feel it had to turn its back on what had served it well for hundreds of years in order to be contemporary?

Then, the church people had to get rid of suits and ties and the preachers were to start wearing blue jeans, sneakers, and sweatshirts. I'm personally giving Rick Warren credit for much of this with his Hawaiian shirts. You have to wonder, did pastors actually think if they started wearing those gaudy things would they soon be running ten thousand in worship?

When I point out that the commentators and broadcasters of televised sporting events all wear suits—three piece, even, and with neckties!—and that airline pilots wear uniforms for a reason (to inspire confidence), those defending their sloppy Sunday appearance get ballistic and accuse me of all sorts of unchristian behavior.

All of this was supposed to bring the world into the church to hear the gospel.

How's that working out?

How. Is. That. Working. Out.

When you enrolled in that physics course in high school, did they tell you that since you would not understand such terms as the laws of motion, electromagnetism, and relativity, they would simplify them in order to make this easier for you?

Did the math teachers throw out terms like "the value of the integral" and "sines, cosines, and algorithms" to make math more accessible?

Yeah, right.

When medical students begin classes, are they offended that the language of medicine is arcane and sometimes difficult and unknown to the laity?

Only in the Church

Only in the church have we been so afraid of offending the outsider that we jettison two-thirds of the things we were doing in order to make him feel welcome.

Lest someone accuse me of callousness, I do want the outsider to come. I do want us to reach the lost with the gospel. The question is not whether we want that but how we accomplish it.

And he's still not coming. Yet, we keep doing those silly things.

A long, long time ago I read of a fellow named Mark Sabre. He stood outside the church–in Australia or New Zealand, it seems like–and noticed what the church was doing. It was giving dances and parties and remaking itself in the image of the community around it. "They call it making religion a living thing of the people," Mark observed. So people could join the church without having to give up anything.

And then Mark Sabre made an observation that has remained with me for at least half a century....

A man wouldn't care what he had to give up, if he knew he was making for something inestimably more precious.

Let us never forget the old adage: He who marries the culture today will be a widower tomorrow.

The gospel is unchanging. Our Savior, the Lord Jesus, is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). "I am the Lord; I change not" (Malachi 3:6).

Should the church be flexible and willing to adapt its methodologies to the culture, to the language, to the peculiarities of a tribe? That seems to be the message of the new wineskins.

New wine must be put into new wineskins (Mark 2:22). The gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is, without doubt, that new wine from Heaven which the old forms would no longer hold and which burst out of their confines before our eyes in the New Testament. That gospel has been bursting through all attempts to corral it ever since. The Lord's message is "the power of God unto salvation to every one who believes" (Romans 1:16). There is nothing else like it on the planet. It's the best news ever.

The one thing the gospel does not need is you and me reshaping it into a crude imitation of the world around us. The glitter of the world and its shallowness will all pass away. But the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ will reign forever.

Let us stand firm and be who He made us. For Jesus' sake.

A man wouldn't care what he had to give up, if he knew he was making for something inestimably more precious.

18 Wind and Solar Markets to Watch in 2020

 Cache   

The world’s total renewable power capacity will grow 50 percent between 2019 and 2024, according to the International Energy Agency. For investors keen to tap into this growth, mostly driven by solar and wind, the question is where to look.

To find out, GTM asked a range of industry experts and insiders for their recommendations on wind and solar markets to watch in 2020. We ignored those markets that already made the list last year.

What follows is a smattering of mature markets returning to form and some that are brand-new.

Without further ado, and in alphabetical order...

Australia: Wind

We listed Australia as a solar market to watch last year, and the country remains one of the more interesting places to invest in PV. But it’s also a big deal for wind power, said Karin Ohlenforst, director of market intelligence at the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). Even though the country’s large-scale renewable energy target has been reached, she said, “the fundamentals for wind are so good a market of up to 2 gigawatts is expected by 2020.” 

Brazil: Wind

Brazil is another maturing renewable energy market where GWEC sees ongoing opportunities for wind in 2020. The wind industry group expects growth in Brazilian installations, along with those in Argentina and Chile, that will come from the execution of auctioned capacity and growing opportunities for bilateral power-purchase agreements. 

Chile: Solar and wind

Chile has long been seen as one of Latin America’s strongest markets for renewables, and the country continues to attract investment from solar developers such as Spain's Solarpack. “Opportunities can still arise for new solar capacity” in the country, said Solarpack’s CEO, Pablo Burgos, although it remains to be seen whether investor confidence might be dented by the anti-government protests that erupted in October. 

China: Solar and wind

China is hardly a new market for wind and solar, but the offshore wind market “is expected to almost double [in 2020] compared to 2019,” said Rolf Kragelund, director for global offshore wind at Wood Mackenzie. GWEC estimates the offshore wind market could hit 4 gigawatts of capacity. Turning to PV, Wood Mackenzie believes a subsidy-free project pipeline could add 9 gigawatts of capacity to the grid in 2020. 

Ethiopia: Solar

Ethiopia’s hydro-heavy generation mix means the country already has enviable levels of clean energy on the grid. The trouble is that most of the country's residents aren’t on the grid, which is why Ethiopia is looking to boost solar development, said Global Green Growth Institute Director General Frank Rijsberman. “You can put solar on the rooftops, and [then have] mini grids and smaller independent systems” sited in rural areas, Rijsberman said. “Small...utility-scale solar that can deal with secondary cities and so on: That, I think, is the future.”

Greece: Solar

Greece is one of several European markets that Solarpack's Burgos is keeping an eye on in 2020. Renewables investment could benefit from the Greek administration’s decision to phase out coal generation by 2028, announced in September. “Greece is the only country in Southeast Europe to have announced a coal phaseout date,” noted advocacy group Europe Beyond Coal in a press statement. “Details of the strategy to achieve the target will be announced by the end of 2019."

Hungary: Solar

Like Greece, Hungary in Eastern Europe has announced plans to abandon coal, with a switch-off date of 2030. In November, the Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority launched the nation’s first renewable energy auction, giving clarity to the future project pipeline. Burgos said Hungary is now among the European markets “putting solar schemes at the forefront of their renewable energy commitments.”

India: Solar

India’s massive and multifaceted solar market continues to deliver opportunities for investors, with Wood Mackenzie’s Q2 2019 Global Solar PV Market Outlook reporting on “auction activity starting to pick up now that [the] election period is over.” Long-term solar growth in the country is likely to be buoyed by a government target of 500 gigawatts of renewable generation by 2030.

Indonesia: Solar

With its vast population and 6,000 or so inhabited islands, Indonesia harbors massive potential for solar developers. So far, progress has been sluggish, with a rooftop net metering scheme failing to stimulate interest. However, lawmakers changed the rules for rooftop PV in October, potentially paving the way for increased growth. Indonesia only had around 60 megawatts of solar installed at the end of last year but plans to boost capacity to 6.5 gigawatts by 2025.

Netherlands: Solar

Although relatively mature, the Dutch solar market still has plenty of room for near-term growth, with 5 gigawatts of capacity expected to be installed between 2019 and 2020. Despite the country’s low irradiance, its "support mechanisms, in the form of feed-in tariffs and tax incentives, help to boost solar” there, said Burgos.  

New Zealand: Wind

Wood Mackenzie’s wind power outlook for Asia-Pacific gained a lift from an unusual source in September. The analyst firm reported that contract wins in New Zealand would “boost an otherwise dormant market” in Asia-Pacific. Just two large projects, Waipipi and Turitea, added 252 megawatts of capacity to New Zealand’s wind industry pipeline this year. The question now is whether that momentum will be sustained in 2020. 

Oman: Solar

Middle Eastern markets remain a magnet for PV developers thanks to their excellent solar resource, growing energy needs and often favorable regulation. In its Q2 2019 Global Solar PV Market Outlook, Wood Mackenzie singled out Oman for special treatment. “Competitive state tenders continue to be launched at a fast clip, including 1,100 megawatts of new project sites at Manah,” WoodMac said.

Poland: Solar

GTM highlighted Poland’s growing wind potential last year. Despite previous setbacks, the country now seems earnest in wanting to foster renewables, with offshore wind in particular looking to benefit. Solar developers are keen to grab a piece of the action, too. Burgos said the Polish solar market had much in common with Hungary. Both states “have committed to reduce their carbon footprint and both are supporting PV with feed-in tariff models,” he said.

South Africa: Wind

South Africa’s once-vibrant renewable energy market has had a rocky few years courtesy of Eskom, the nation’s beleaguered electricity behemoth. But with the too-big-to-fail state utility slowly getting its affairs back under control, the picture for wind is improving, said Ohlenforst. “After two years of pausing, installations are [set] to pick up again in 2020,” she predicted, with the market poised to top 700 megawatts next year.

South Korea: Wind and solar

South Korea “would like to scale up” on renewables, said Rijsberman of the Global Green Growth Institute. “They have the money [and] the government has the targets.” The problem for developers is finding affordable land in the crowded country, he said. This is hampering efforts to scale up solar development and increasingly putting the focus on offshore wind as a major contributor to South Korea’s clean energy plans.

Ukraine: Solar

Last year the Ukraine was enthusiastically hyped as a wind destination. And in October the market delivered with the announcement of Europe’s largest onshore wind farm, a 750-megawatt monster in the southeast of the country. The country’s PV market, which is now approaching 3 gigawatts of capacity, also remains buoyant despite moves to replace feed-in tariffs with an auction system. Developers such as Solarpack and Scatec Solar are eyeing the market, with the latter installing its first Ukrainian plant in August.

U.S.: Wind and solar

Even as the renewables industry waits to see if there will be an extension to the supporting federal tax credits, developers are bullish about the U.S. market. In the immediate term, the country is in the middle of its biggest-ever build-out of onshore wind capacity, and the offshore market is taking off as East Coast states increase their targets.

Vietnam: Wind

The end of a generous feed-in tariff in June this year saw developers rushing to connect almost 4.5 gigawatts of PV capacity to the grid in a matter of months. Now that the solar rush is over, the government is looking to repeat the trick with wind, also offering enticing incentives, said Rijsberman. “A lot of companies are now doing the same thing for wind in Vietnam as they were doing for large-scale solar,” he said. “What hasn’t really happened yet is rooftop solar, partly because the regulation doesn’t favor it.”

Jacinda Ardern unveils borrowing plan as PM puts Labour on election footing

Leader pitches schools overhaul in party conference message aimed at nation’s voters as much as Labour members

New Zealand Labour has used its party conference to announce it would borrow money for “significant” infrastructure spending – a move long urged by businesses and economists – as it made its pitch to New Zealanders ahead of a 2020 election.

The party put its most popular asset, prime minister Jacinda Ardern, front and centre at the weekend gathering, which also saw the election of a new, female president, as it moved to address claims it has mishandled internal sexual assault complaints.

Sex, violence, racism: how the Grace Millane and Christchurch trials challenge court reporting | Megan Whelan

 Cache   

As New Zealanders grapple with graphic content and whether to name names, the media must ensure it toes the line of justice

The murder of British backpacker Grace Millane, and the upcoming trial of the man accused of the Christchurch terror attacks have led to widespread discussions about violence and racism and safety and sex. They also pose big questions around how journalists and editors handle graphic detail and court rulings.

The Millane case sparked intense public interest in New Zealand, including public vigils, international media attention and widespread public comment. A 27-year-old man was convicted of her murder. The man’s name and details that may identify him remain suppressed.

Press Conference - Parliament House, ACT

 Cache   

PRIME MINISTER: Thank you for coming together. Foreign interference has been an evolving threat for some years now. It's a threat that our Government has been addressing with stronger laws, stronger powers, greater resources. Over the last few months, on the advice of our agencies, we have worked to establish a countering foreign interference task force which brings together the key agencies to focus our efforts even more greatly on this evolving threat. That ensures that we will be developing new specialist capabilities both from an investigatory capacity as well as being able to pursue investigations and bring them to either disrupt activity or, indeed, follow through and prosecute. This Taskforce to counter foreign interference is about identifying it, disrupting and prosecuting. And that builds on, I think, the outstanding work of our agencies over many years. As I move around at various international fora, one of the key issues that other leaders raise with me is they inquire into how Australia has been able to move so successfully in both identifying, calling out and taking action to counter foreign interference. It's an issue that is presenting in many other jurisdictions, and Australia is seen as a world leader in this area. That is recognised from my perspective purely by the volume of inquiries that are made to me about these issues as we move around, particularly with our close partners. 

Foreign interference comes from many, many different sources and it's important that we have the capacity to deal with it. It's an evolving threat and it's also been a building and evolving response. Since we came to Government, we have put in an additional $3.1 billion into ASIO and AFP to deal with the many threats that Australia faces, including this one. And I want to commend the Minister for Home Affairs, Peter Dutton, on his leadership of that agenda and ensuring that we're always staying ahead of this and leading the way on this working closely across all of our agencies to ensure that we get the result that Australians expect of us in keeping them safe, keeping Australia safe and most importantly protecting our democracy and our society. Peter.

THE HON. PETER DUTTON MP, MINISTER FOR HOME AFFAIRS: Thanks very much, PM. This is an $87.8 million investment into our agencies. We know that for decades, foreign interference has been an issue in our country, like it is in any other democracy, and we want to make sure that we protect our institutions. There's a lot of work that we have done with the higher education sector, for instance. There's work we have been doing behind the scenes for a long period of time. So this investment will go into, obviously, ASIO, the AFP, as well as AUSTRAC, ASD, the Australian Geospatial Intelligence Organisation and ONI as well. It is a significant investment and as the Prime Minister rightly points out, it's on the back of significant investment we have made over a period of time, not just financially, but in terms of the laws that the agencies can work with to try and deal with the issue of foreign interference. I want to commend the work of Mike Burgess and before him Duncan Lewis as well as the work of the Australian Federal Police now under Reece Kershaw, before that with Andrew Colvin. All of the front-line officers work on a daily basis, whether it’s in the area of counter-terrorism, in the area of countering foreign interference or many other threats that the Prime Minister alluded to a moment ago that they deal with day and night. This will bolster their capacity to deal with the issue of foreign interference and we have always listened to our agencies about changes to the law that may be required, about further investments that may be needed, and that's exactly what we're doing here today.

JOURNALIST: Prime Minister, what will be done that wasn't being done before? What will the money be spent on? We’re talking more headcount across these agencies or we talking more powerful computer systems? What exactly is the money going to?

PRIME MINISTER: Obviously, there are some elements of this that we can't go into precise detail about for obvious reasons. We're not about to give a heads-up to those who would seek to interfere in Australia's arrangements. But I alluded to in my remarks the development of specialist capabilities. We have the ability to develop a response force here that can really set the standard globally in understanding how foreign interference takes place, understanding how to disrupt it most successfully and to counter it, and ultimately to be able to put yourself in a position where you can take matters to prosecution. Now, in some cases, it would involve the Minister acting in his capacity to be expelling those who shouldn't be in this country if they have acted in this way. As you know, we have already taken some decisions along those lines. So this is an evolution of our capability that has been building. This threat has been evolving and we have been staying ahead of it by building that capability now over many years and most recently, this initiative which improves the collaboration, ensures that the tools they have are world-class and they can work together to identify, disrupt and prosecute.

JOURNALIST: When the most recent example of alleged foreign interference is fully investigated, that is interference in the Liberal Party preselection process in Chisholm, which has been alluded to publicly by ASIO, do you intend to release the result of that investigation or have ASIO release it?

THE HON. PETER DUTTON MP, MINISTER FOR HOME AFFAIRS: Well, Michelle, obviously the Director-General, Mr Burgess, put out a statement in relation to these matters. I would expect he would have a subsequent statement to make but that's an issue for him, but as you'd expect, they're not issues we would go into. What can be made publicly available will be, but on the advice I have received, I don't have any concern in relation to issues domestically. I think there is in relation to this particular matter, I think the Director-General will have something further to say in due course and I'll let that investigation run its course.

JOURNALIST: Prime Minister, it was announced today that Nick Xenophon is working for Huawei as a strategic consultant. Should someone who is a former Senator be on the foreign interest register?

PRIME MINISTER: He needs to comply with the law like everybody else.

JOURNALIST: He says that Huawei has been treated maliciously, unfairly, copped slurs. What do you say to that characterisation of the treatment of Huawei, particularly in the context of the 5G network ban?

PRIME MINISTER: Well, as the Treasurer who made the decision regarding 5G matters, that was a decision we took in Australia's national interest and we stand by it and it was not directed at any one operator. It was a decision that applied across any number of those who would have sought to make applications that would have fallen foul of the standards that we set. So, look, I wish Nick all the best in his new employment and it sounds like he's prosecuting his case. It's a free country.

JOURNALIST: What concerns do you have about Yang Hengjun and what more can be done diplomatically in this area?

PRIME MINISTER: Well, let's be clear - these are matters that are under investigation and these are things that the Director-General of ASIO has already issued a statement on. But I concur with the Minister's response which is to say based on the advice I have, I have no concerns about any of his domestic activities.

JOURNALIST: I think the question actually is about the fellow who is locked up in China.

PRIME MINISTER: I'm sorry. I thought we were talking about the other issue, the names are very similar.

JOURNALIST: Given your frustration with the prosecutions here, do you think that his treatment - he's been shackled for interrogation - that your pursuit of more prosecutions in Australia could see more tit-for-tat?

PRIME MINISTER: Well, Australia always has to stand up for our citizens and we have to be true to who we are as a people. And I, as is the Foreign Minister, are very concerned following the most recent consular access that we have had about the treatment and we have raised these issues consistently now for some time and we would like to see the issues about access to lawyers, about getting a clear enunciation of what the matter is that have been brought against the Australian citizen at the centre of this case, and, thirdly, that his access to family and treatment that would meet, you know, world standards is being provided to him. Now, the most recent consular access was a matter of great concern to me and the Foreign Minister and we will continue to make those representations on behalf of an Australian citizen.

JOURNALIST: Prime Minister, on Ensuring Integrity, do you share the view of your colleagues that Senator Hanson has somehow been cowed by the unions, especially in the shadow of the state election in Queensland next year?

PRIME MINISTER: The Attorney-General has made those comments last week. Look, I just deal with each Bill on its merits and I deal with the Senators as we deal with each case. A number of observations have been made about the events of last week. It was disappointing, it was disappointing that having been given those assurances that that was gone back on ultimately when the vote was taken. Those are the events of last week. I think they're all very transparent about what occurred there and the disappointments we had about how that was handled by One Nation. But we move on to the next issue. We'll be taking the Ensuring Integrity Bill forward again. It will come back into the House of Representatives this week after it goes back through Party Room this week, and we will take it forward because we believe in it. We believe that union thugs should not go on to building sites and threaten people or in any area of the workplace and be able to do that on and on and on and on and not face any expulsion from the industry for doing that. They should be. I put laws in place to do that to bankers. It should be in place to do that to union thugs too.

JOURNALIST: Do you agree with the Americans that your policy of stripping citizenship is counter-productive and that they should be brought back here and prosecuted?

PRIME MINISTER: I believe Australia's policy should be set in Australia's national interest and no-one else.

JOURNALIST: Are you prepared to accept the New Zealand offer in order to try to secure Jacqui Lambie's support for the repeal of the medivac law?

PRIME MINISTER: Our policies on those matters haven't changed.

JOURNALIST: Mr Dutton, you're a former police officer, would you have appreciated or taken a call from the Prime Minister into a matter that you're investigating?

THE HON. PETER DUTTON MP, MINISTER FOR HOME AFFAIRS: Well, you're talking about the dark ages when I was last a police officer. I had a lot of hair, weighed a lot less and it was a long time ago. I said at the time last week I thought the Prime Minister's call was entirely appropriate. The Prime Minister has obligations under the Ministerial Code of Conduct and the alternative view would have been that he didn't avail himself of the information and, therefore, he couldn't fulfil his obligation under the Ministerial Code of Conduct and you would have been critical of that. So I think his actions were entirely appropriate to make the enquiries. The Prime Minister pointed out at the time that Mr Fuller and the New South Wales police have responsibility for the investigation, nobody sought to impede that. Entirely an issue for them. But should the Prime Minister have made the call to get all of the facts to see whether or not he needed to act under Ministerial Code of Conduct? Absolutely. He did the right thing and I think that's been well-detailed.

JOURNALIST: Prime Minister, the Government has noted that the ageing population is putting new demands on the pension and the aged care system. Your department, Prime Minister and Cabinet, employs just one person over the age of 65. Should the Government and your department be doing more to employ older Australians?

PRIME MINISTER: Yes. Thank you.

Itulah beberapa pendaftaran beasiswa tahun akademik 2020 - 2021 maupun 2021 – 2022 yang bisa dicoba. Jika ingin mengetahui pilihan beasiswa lainnya silakan bukan laman utama beasiswapascasarjana.com.

Cara Mendaftar Beasiswa 2020 – 2021
Pendaftaran beasiswa secara online menjadi pilihan paling banyak yang digunakan penyedia beasiswa saat ini. Meski penggunaan berkas fisik masih ada, namun trendnya menurun seiring kemudahan pendaftaran beasiswa secara online. Banyak sponsor beasiswa yang memilih aplikasi secara online karena selain menjangkau pelamar lebih luas, permohonan yang masuk pun lebih terukur. Dengan begitu, proses seleksi menjadi lebih ketat. Sehingga penyedia beasiswa bisa menyaring kandidat-kandidat penerima beasiswa yang potensial berdasarkan kriteria seleksi mereka.

Lalu bagaimana cara mendaftar beasiswa secara online? Berikut kami uraikan beberapa langkahnya.

1. Tetapkan pilihan beasiswa
Silakan lihat pilihan beasiswa yang pendaftarannya sedang dibuka di atas. Anda akan menemukan nama beasiswa beserta link dan juga deadline pendaftaran. Pilih yang jadwal penerimaannya belum berakhir. Kemudian klik link beasiswa tersebut untuk melihat penjelasan lebih lanjut.

2. Cek bagian pendaftaran
Setelah membuka halaman informasi beasiswa yang diminati, sorot pada bagian “Pendaftaran”. Biasanya kami muat pada paragraf-paragraf terakhir. Lihat penjelasan cara mendaftar beasiswanya. Bila pendaftaran beasiswa secara online, link pendaftaran biasanya kami sertakan di bagian paragraf tersebut. Sebaliknya bila pendaftaran via pos atau berkas fisik, alamat pengirima berkas juga kami tampilkan di sana.

3. Pendaftaran beasiswa sepaket
Maksudnya adalah pendaftaran beasiswa juga sekaligus pendaftaran ke universitas. Biasanya ditujukan bagi calon mahasiswa baru atau semester awal. Umumnya beasiswa seperti ini menetapkan calon penerima beasiswa dari berkas pendaftarannya ke universitas. Jadi, pelamar hanya daftar ke universitas, lalu secara otomatis dipertimbangkan juga ke program beasiswa yang sedang ditawarkan.

4. Pendaftaran beasiswa terpisah
Pendaftaran beasiswa terpisah maksudnya adalah pelamar mendaftar ke program beasiswa secara mandiri, tidak termasuk pendaftaran kuliah atau universitas. Jadi pengajuan aplikasi beasiswa berbeda dengan universitas. Termasuk soal dokumen yang harus diserahkan juga biasanya berbeda. Umumnya yang ditemui, sponsor beasiswa biasanya mensyaratkan sebelum pelamar mendaftar ke program beasiswa, pelamar terlebih dahulu harus mendaftar ke universitas dan memperoleh letter of  acceptance (LoA) yang sifatnya conditional atau unconditional.

5. Pendaftaran beasiswa mahasiswa aktif
Maksudnya adalah pendaftaran beasiswa ditujukan bagi pelamar yang sudah tercatat sebagai mahasiswa, baik dari kampus tertentu atau pada jenjang semester tertentu. Beasiswa model ini biasanya lebih mudah dikenali karena syarat asal kampus pelamar atau jenjang semester yang ditetapkan sudah diketahui sejak awal. Umumnya sponsor beasiswa menjaring pelamar secara online menggunakan website mereka sendiri atau partner. Itulah beberapa cara mendaftar beasiswa 2020 – 2021 yang kam nilai relevan saat ini. Anda bisa menyimak tips beasiswa lainnya dari link di atas.

Berikut ini adalah beberapa tips mendapatkan beasiswa yang pernah diulas sebelumnya:

Cara Menulis Essay Beasiswa yang Baik dan Menjual

Cara mendapatkan beasiswa 2020 – 2021
Pendaftaran beasiswa secara online selain memberi kemudahan banyak orang karena bisa diakses secara luas, sisi tidak ‘nyamannya’ adalah membuat kompetisi beasiswa semakin sengit. Pelamar bisa membludak dan membuat seleksi kandidat tambah berat. Apalagi jika kuota yang tersedia tidak banyak, maka tidak ada jalan lain selain mempersiapkan diri sebaik mungkin agar bisa terjaring memperoleh beasiswa yang diidamkan.

Lalu bagaimana cara mendapatkan beasiswa, khususnya di tahun 2020 – 2021? Hal pertama yang harus Anda lakukan adalah mengenali jenis dan karakter beasiswa tersebut. Apakah ia beasiswa prestasi, beasiswa penghargaan, beasiswa riset, beasiswa latarbelakang sosial, atau beasiswa preferensi tertentu. Setelah kenal, coba evaluasi diri dulu, kira-kira dengan latarbelakang Anda, cocoknya beasiswa seperti apa. Selanjutnya baru siapkan aplikasi secara matang untuk diajukan. Sebenarnya tiap beasiswa memiliki karakteristiknya sendiri, karena itu pendekatan untuk memperolehnya pun berbeda. Silakan simak tips di atas untuk penjelasan lebih lanjut.

Joe Root hits epic double century but rain may foil England in second Test

 Cache   

In becoming the first visiting captain to score a double century in New Zealand, Joe Root felt his mandate swell in a way that the political leaders back home can only dream about. The hope now for England is his form carries through this heavy Test winter on the road.

Root’s epic 226 at the tree-lined Seddon Park came over 10-and-a-half hours and 441 balls spent rooted to the crease. With Ollie Pope in tow for a similarly determined 75 – one that points to his bright future – the captain helped post a total of 476 all out from 162.5 overs and with it a first-innings lead of 101 runs.

Exploring the village of Supetar, Croatia

 Cache   
The great thing about arriving somewhere in the dark is that when you wake up the next day it is a revelation. We had fallen into bed tired and sleepy on our first night but that didn't stop us getting up early next morning to see the view from our terrace, and what a view it was.  Our large roof top terrace looked right out over the village of Supetar, down to the boat harbour and the sea and across to the mainland of Croatia.  With a spa pool, sun loungers and that stunning view we spent a lot of time up there taking spas, relaxing, watching the activities on the harbour, drinking wine and chatting.  It was magical.

The view from our terrace

But lovely and all as the view was we were keen to explore the village so set off to walk along the coastline. Supetar went through hard times when things were tough but has now reinvented itself as a holiday destination, popular with Croations, so a number of the houses have been restored as holiday homes or lets.  Many locals leave Brac for the worst of winter, when it is snowing and the famously strong, freezing winds batter the island, but this was late summer and it was clear the village was in its summer holiday mood. I enjoyed picking and poking at the little craft shops lining the harbour side and my delighted grandson spotted a lot of activities available to rent, including bumper cars, football, kayaks, pool and water slides. They were for later, though, for now we were heading towards St Nicholas cemetery.

St Nicholas cemetery - note the two large mausoleums on the right
I enjoy wandering through cemeteries.  They are peaceful places and you can learn a lot about a people and their culture there.  St Nicholas, nestled among whispering pines and cypress trees on a headland overlooking the sea, boasts a number of large, rather grandiose mausoleums and two tombs from early Christian times.  The ruins of Villa Rustica, from the early Roman settlement of the island can be seen near the cemetery. Some of the mausoleums and graves are embellished with carvings by Ivan Rendic, Croatia's most famous sculptor.  Interestingly his own grave is humble but fitting. I was particularly pleased to see surnames I recognised of people I knew in New Zealand. It was quite a thrill to note where my friends' ancestors had come from.

Left: The Petronovic family mausoleum

We wandered around  the cemetery for quite some time but the day was getting hotter so we headed for home, stopping off at a cool, shady beach side cabana for icy cold fruit drinks on our way.

That afternoon I took a stroll around the village following a well marked historic trail.  It is such a pretty, picturesque place where tumble down ruins covered in creepers, with a charm and beauty all their own, nestle among restored and tidy homes. I thoroughly enjoyed this walk despite the local drivers who belted along the narrow streets at break neck speed.  I decided it was preferable to stick to the quiet lanes, of which there are plenty, and enjoy the small vignettes of village life along the way.




















Later we enjoyed a glass of wine and watched the sunset from the terrace as the church bells rang out vespers across the village. 



That evening my family took me to dinner at Konoba Vinotoka, as a belated birthday present.  Set in a pretty little square among olive trees, draped in fairy lights and overlooked by the Church of St Martin it was a delightful spot. We had authentic Croatian food, including the freshest of fish and vegetables, marinated olives, cheeses, nuts, local breads and pumpkin ice cream, all delicious and the perfect end to our first day in Croatia.

Trans-Tasman Talk Ep.12 - Whose Tasman Nations?

 Cache   

Presented in association with The Unshackled. Trans-Tasman Talk (TTT) is hosted by Tim Wilms from Melbourne and Dieuwe de Boer from Auckland. The show debuts every Tuesday at 9pm New Zealand time and 7pm Melbourne time. Episodes are broadcast live on Youtube via Right Minds, The Unshackled, and The BFD.

Who runs the countries on either side of the Tasman? Revelations in Australia have shown that the Chinese Communist Party tried to plant a spy as a Liberal MP. There is some actual journalism being done as Australian media investigates, but on the other side of the ditch, the reaction to CCP influence is always far more muted. In New Zealand, American comedian Stephen Colbert was on a state-funded visit to do PR with Jacinda Ardern and announce that he'll move to New Zealand for real next year - but Tim and Dieuwe don't think he'll give up his 15m salary.

Former Australian senator David Leyonhjelm has lost a defamation suit that Sarah Hansen-Young of the Greens took against him. Th court ruled that he owes her $120,000 for slut-shaming her, but if progressives believe that being a slut isn't a bad thing, how can it be defamatory? In New Zealand, the legal feud between NZ First and National continues as threats of fraud and lawsuits continue to fly. It's all about the donors, and by now it's more than clear enough that both parties have special interests buying up influence.

The extent to which the bureaucracy is running and how disconnected MPs often are have been highlighted by Scott Morrison's office having transgender bathrooms, which he quickly ordered dismantled after their existence was revealed. Morrison's image seems to be starting to fade as he shows little tangible progress on the issues that got him elected.

A Westpac scandal has rocked Australia where it's been revealed that 25 million illegal transactions for sex trafficers and paedophiles had been approved by the bank amounting to 11 billion in revenue. The CEO has since resigned and been given a 2.7m "golden handshake" after he made statements that the breach was not an issue for everyday Australians and seemed more concerned that they'd have to cancel their Christmas party.

In a more lighthearted story to round out the show, we see that 25% of Kiwibuild homes have not sold on the market, nor will Housing NZ attempt to acquire them. Comrade Jacinda is building houses that even her own government won't buy.

"Latest TIP Report Will Surely Inspire And Motivate Port Operations Division Personnel Manning The Ports To Sustain Their Efforts In Fighting Human Trafficking." Bureau Of Immigration Port Operations Division Grifton Medina

 Cache   

INTRAMUROS, Manila—The management of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) exhorted its officers assigned at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and other ports to keep up their vigilance after it was announced that the Philippines retained its Tier 1 ranking in the US government’s human trafficking index for 2019. “I commend and congratulate the men and women of our port operations division (POD) who guard our ports day and night to ensure that countrymen are saved from the scourge of human trafficking,” Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said in a statement. The Philippines retained for the fourth consecutive year its Tier 1 ranking in the recently-released 2019 Trafficking in Persons Report of the US Department of State. Morente said that the rating is “a tribute to your hard work and dedication to your duties as gatekeepers of our country.”

Morente urged Bureau of Immigration personnel in the different ports to “remain vigilant as there is no sign that these human trafficking syndicates who prey on the poor, including minors, will stop their nefarious activities.” Bureau of Immigration Port Operations Division Chief Grifton Medina, for his part, said “the latest TIP report will surely inspire and motivate POD personnel manning the ports to sustain their efforts in fighting human trafficking.” Medina said there will be no letup in the bureau’s anti-trafficking campaign even as he reported that more than 10,000 travelers were stopped from leaving the country from January to April this year, mostly for having incomplete travel papers and questionable purpose in going abroad. A Tier 1 rating means that the Philippine government fully meets the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking and has continually demonstrated serious and sustained efforts to combat human trafficking. The Philippines leads the ranking in East Asia and the Pacific, sharing the Tier 1 status with Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Other countries mentioned in the report who were given a Tier 1 rating are Australia, Canada, France, Netherlands, New Zealand and Spain. "The Tier 1 status was given to only 33 countries all over the world," said Morente. "We are proud to be a big part in the government's efforts against human trafficking. We will not stop protecting our fellow Filipinos from this threat. The result of this report is a reminder why we do what we do," he added. The report also acknowledged the BI’s accomplishment in deferring the departure of 24,753 passengers due to incomplete or missing travel documents or misrepresentation, referring for investigation 286 potential cases of suspected trafficking, identifying 286 potential victims of trafficking, and arresting nine suspected traffickers. BI stopped 199 foreign registered sex offenders from entering the country last year, the same

Coming December 3rd
Get it on Amazon
Thank you to Berkley Publishing via Netgalley for my ARC



I spent my entire weekend wrapped up in A Madness of Sunshine. From page one until the very twisty and stunning ending I was absolutely captivated by a widow returning home. Everything about this was fresh and new to me. From the setting in a picturesque yet dangerous environment of Golden Cove, to the people cast as old friends and new.

Nalini Singh has really delivered a thoughtful and highly compelling read. I seriously hope there will be more. I find myself craving a deeper look into this world and everyone Singh created within it.

5 Brilliant Stars.
~Tanja



New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh welcomes you to a remote town on the edge of the world where even the blinding brightness of the sun can’t mask the darkness that lies deep within a killer…

On the rugged West Coast of New Zealand, Golden Cove is more than just a town where people live. The adults are more than neighbors; the children, more than schoolmates.

That is until one fateful summer—and several vanished bodies—shatters the trust holding Golden Cove together. All that’s left are whispers behind closed doors, broken friendships, and a silent agreement not to look back. But they can’t run from the past forever.

Eight years later, a beautiful young woman disappears without a trace, and the residents of Golden Cove wonder if their home shelters something far more dangerous than an unforgiving landscape.

It’s not long before the dark past collides with the haunting present and deadly secrets come to light.

GHD helps students to embrace Indo-Pacific opportunities

 Cache   

Global professional services company GHD has highlighted the importance of building cultural and professional experiences in the Indo-Pacific region at the New Colombo Plan awards presentation in Canberra on 25 November.

The New Colombo Plan enables more than 120 Australian university students to live, study and work in the Indo-Pacific region each year with the aim of deepening Australia’s relationships in the region.

In the 2020 intake announced by Foreign Affairs Minister Marise Payne, GHD is proudly sponsoring two scholars and Fellows of the program – Shannon Shulz and Kit Muirhead, both from University of Melbourne. Shannon will spend time in GHD’s Fiji office next year while Kit will join GHD in Papua New Guinea. On their return to Australia these two scholars will be offered similar internships in one of GHD’s Australian offices.

“We share the government’s commitment to the Indo-Pacific Region and we understand that personal ties, experiences and respectful partnerships create the strongest connections,” says Ben White, GHD’s Operations Manager for the Pacific. 

“Across GHD’s regional offices – Fiji, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Guam, Saipan and China – and long-term project sites in Timor Leste and the Cook Islands, it is the partnership between our local employees and those based in Australia, New Zealand and the United States that makes us a strong part of the regional community,” said Ben.

May Ngui, GHD’s Canberra Regional General Manager, says “We, like all the program’s business partners, are proud to be directly partnering with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to deliver the New Colombo Plan. These scholarships are building future leaders who will contribute to the Indo-Pacific region in which we have a footprint across a range of sectors and organisations. Together with these emerging leaders, we can create lasting community benefits.”

To date, GHD has hosted a total of six New Colombo interns in its Fiji and Philippines offices, with Evie Packett and Joel Kennaway from the 2019 scholar group currently doing internships at GHD offices in Fiji and the Philippines respectively.

Trigger warnings don’t help people cope with distressing material

 Cache   


Imagine you're a lecturer teaching a celebrated novel that features violent scenes – say, F Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby (1925).


It transpires that one of your students has themselves been a victim of violence and now, thanks to your words, they are reliving their trauma. Could you, should you, have done more to protect this person?

Beginning in 2013, many students at universities in the United States began demanding that their lecturers do just that and provide 'trigger warnings' ahead of any potentially upsetting content. For instance, one student at Rutgers University in New Jersey highlighted the potential harm that The Great Gatsby might cause, with its 'variety of scenes that reference gory, abusive and misogynistic violence'.

As you might have noticed, the use of trigger warnings has since spread beyond US universities to educational institutions around the world, and further: into theatres, festivals and even news stories. The warnings have become another battlefield in the culture wars, with many seeing them as threatening free speech and the latest sign of 'political correctness' gone mad.


None


Ideology aside, one could make a basic ethical case for giving warnings in the sense that it's the considerate thing to do. If I invite a friend round to watch a movie that I know features disturbing scenes, it's simply courteous and thoughtful to alert my friend in advance, in case she'd rather watch something more anodyne – and one could make the same case for a lecturer about to discuss distressing topics.

But as the debate over trigger warnings has raged, advocates for them have made strong psychological claims. First, they've argued that trigger warnings give people with a history of trauma a welcome chance to avoid the upsetting content. The literature scholar Mason Stokes of Skidmore College in New York has said that his teachings of Jim Grimsley's novel Dream Boy (1995), which explores themes of child sexual abuse, caused one of his students – an incest survivor – to need in-patient psychiatric care. 'I've warned students about the emotions this novel might trigger every time I've taught it since,' he wrote in The Chronicle of Higher Education in 2014, the implication being that, in future, any of his students with a history of trauma will be able to avoid his upsetting lectures and therefore avoid needing acute psychiatric care.

Second, trigger-warning advocates say that such warnings give students and others the opportunity to brace themselves emotionally. In her New York Times op-ed 'Why I Use Trigger Warnings' (2015), the philosophy lecturer Kate Manne of Cornell University in New York argued that they 'allow those who are sensitive to [potentially upsetting] subjects to prepare themselves for reading about them, and better manage their reactions'.

None


Whereas the ideological arguments for and against trigger warnings are difficult to settle, the specific psychological claims can be tested against the evidence. On the first claim, that trigger warnings enable survivors of trauma to avoid re-experiencing the negative associated emotions, critics argue that the avoidance of potentially upsetting material is actually a counterproductive approach because it offers no chance to learn to manage one's emotional reactions. As a result, fears deepen and catastrophic thoughts go unchallenged.

Consider a meta-analysis of 39 studies in 2007 by Sam Houston State University in Texas that found a 'clear, consistent association' between using avoidance-based coping strategies (that is, staying away from upsetting stressors or avoiding thinking about them) and increased psychological distress. For a more concrete example, look at the findings from a study, published in 2011, of women who witnessed the Virginia Tech shooting of 2007 – those who tried to avoid thinking about what happened tended to experience more symptoms of depression and anxiety in the months that followed.

On the question of whether trigger warnings give people the chance to brace themselves emotionally, a spate of recent studies suggest that this simply isn't how the mind works. In 2018, an investigation by Harvard University asked hundreds of volunteers on Amazon's Mechanical Turk survey website to read graphic literary passages – such as the murder scene in Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment (1866) – that either were or weren't preceded by a trigger warning of distressing content ahead, and then rate their feelings. The warnings had little beneficial effect on the volunteers' emotional reactions.

None


In the spring of 2019, a paper by the University of Waikato in New Zealand had nearly 1,400 participants across six studies watch graphic video footage, either preceded or not with warnings. This time, the warnings reduced the upsetting impact of the videos, but the size of this effect was 'so small as to lack practical significance' – and this was true regardless of whether the participants had a history of trauma or not.

Around the same time, a group at Flinders University in Australia looked at the effect of trigger warnings on people's experience of ambiguous photos accompanied by different headlines – such as a picture of passengers boarding a plane either with an upsetting crash-related headline or an innocuous business-related headline. Trigger warnings increased participants' negative feelings prior to the photo presentation, presumably as they anticipated what was to come. But, once again, the warnings didn't make much difference to how volunteers responded emotionally to the photos.

It was a similar story in the summer of 2019 when researchers at McKendree University in Illinois gave volunteers warnings (or not) prior to watching educational videos about suicide or sexual assault. Again, the warnings had no meaningful effect on the emotional impact of the videos, including for volunteers who'd had their own personal experience of the topics. Post-video quizzes also showed the trigger warnings had no benefit for the participants' learning.

And just this autumn, another relevant paper was published online. It wasn't about trigger warnings per se, but investigated a cognitive principle central to the trigger-warnings debate. A team from the University of Würzburg in Germany wanted to see if advance warnings could allow people to better ignore distracting negative images while they were engaged in another task. Their consistent finding across three experiments was that people cannot use warnings to prepare or shield themselves from being distracted by an upsetting image.

None


All these new research findings don't undermine the ethical or ideological case for trigger warnings, but they do cast serious doubt on the psychological arguments mustered by trigger-warning advocates. At the same time, the results provide some support for other psychological claims made by trigger-warning critics – such as the attorney Greg Lukianoff and the social psychologist Jonathan Haidt, authors of the book The Coddling of the American Mind (2018) – namely, that these warnings encourage a belief in the vulnerability of people with a history of trauma and, in fact, in people's vulnerability in general.

For instance, the Harvard research found that the use of trigger warnings increased participants' belief in the vulnerability of people with post-traumatic stress disorder – an unwelcome effect that the researchers described as a form of 'soft stigma' (also, for the subgroup of participants who started out the study believing in the power of words to harm, the trigger warnings actually increased the negative impact of the passages). Similarly, the McKendree research found that the only meaningful effect of trigger warnings was to increase people's belief in the sensitivity of others to upsetting material and in the need for warnings.

It's important not to overstate the scientific case against trigger warnings. Research into their effects is still in its infancy and, most notable, none of the recent studies has focused on their use among people with mental-health diagnoses. Yet already the results are surprisingly consistent in undermining the specific claim that trigger warnings allow people to marshal some kind of mental defence mechanism. There is also a solid evidence base that avoidance is a harmful coping strategy for people recovering from trauma or dealing with anxiety. The clear message from psychology then is that trigger warnings should come with their own warning – they won't achieve much, except encourage maladaptive coping and the belief that folk are sensitive and need protecting.Aeon counter – do not remove
