    Four Top Victorian Labor Ministers Retire, State Cabinet to Reshuffle
    By Alfred Bui
    June 24, 2022 Updated: June 24, 2022

    The Victorian Labor government has been forced to organise a cabinet reshuffle after four senior ministers announced their retirement.

    On June 24, Deputy Premier James Merlino, Health Minister Martin Foley, Police Minister Lisa Neville and Sports Minister Martin Pakula issued statements confirming their decisions to step down from the cabinet. They also would not recontest in the November state election.

  3. A bit of farming history.

    Hiram M. Drache of Illinois Periodicals Online, a digital imaging project at the Northern Illinois University Libraries, reminds us that that to till an acre of land with a hand-held spade required 96 hours. To plow an acre with a crude wooden plow took 24 hours. With John Deere’s first plow, it took between 5 and 8 hours. And by 1998, a 425-horsepower John Deere 9400 four-wheel-drive pulling a 15-bottom plow (15 blades) could till an acre in just over three minutes. According to Drache:

  4. Exclusive Letter From a Jan. 6 Prisoner: ‘Light Brushfires of Liberty in the Souls of Men’
    Facts Matter
    Roman Balmakov

    A former Green Beret named Jeremy Brown has been sitting in jail for the past seven months as a Jan. 6 prisoner. His crime: one misdemeanor count of allegedly trespassing on U.S. Capitol grounds.

    However, thanks to a serendipitous chain of events, an investigative journalist at The Epoch Times—the award-winning Patricia Tolson—obtained a letter, written by Jeremy’s own hand from behind bars.

    I wanted to read this letter together with you all, because it is an authentic account that I believe all Americans should have access to. It’s the true first-hand account of a Jan. 6 prisoner that might truly “light brushfires of Liberty in the souls of men.”

  6. If New Zealand really cared about conservation we should offer a home to these most beautiful and critically endangered animals. They would be ideally suited to life in the Southern Alps where their natural prey, the Himalayan Tahr, already lives. Perhaps DoC could then dispense with the disgusting practice of shotgunning Tahr from helicopters.

    It is worth noting that there has never been a recorded case of a Snow Leopard attacking a human.

  8. Efeso Collins wants free Public Transport for Auckland.

    He also wants people who have absolutely no form of Public Transport in their towns to pay for it.

    Towns that have no Public Transport of any kind like Taumarunui, Waiouru, Taihape and it goes on. This is despite the fact that all these towns get Taxed and pay Transport Levies in their Regional Council Rates.

    Well Efeso Collins and his money grubbing non achieving ilk, can just fuck right off.

    If Aucklanders want free Public Transport, pay for it yourselves, don’t expect the rest of New Zealand who get Levied or Rated for it and still have no Public Transport pay for your own wished for, jollies.

  9. Government announces light rail and second Mt Victoria tunnel for Wellington

    The Government is moving ahead with a second Mt Victoria tunnel for Wellington and light rail running from the central railway station to Island Bay as its “preferred choice”.

    Upgrades will also be made to improve traffic flow at the Basin Reserve, which involves the extension of the Arras Tunnel.

    This morning Finance Minister Grant Robertson and Transport Minister Michael Wood outlined the long-awaited decision on Let’s Get Wellington Moving’s (LGWM) big projects.

    The second Mt Victoria tunnel will have two lanes for vehicles and two lanes for public transport. The existing tunnel will be transformed into one for walking and cycling.

    It means there will be no additional lanes for cars through Mt Victoria.

    Light rail to the city’s southern suburbs was preferred due to the route’s potential for new housing.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/government-announces-light-rail-and-second-mt-victoria-tunnel-for-wellington/BXWMCLPBDHHGUNTMJF6CB6527E/

    ah but ots not what yopu think. Nothing ever is.

    Following today’s announcement, a detailed business case will be carried out. Other LGWM partners, including the city and regional councils, will also need to agree on the plan for that work to progress.

    Wood said given the scale of the project, this business case would also consider the alternative option of bus rapid transit along the light rail route.

    “This is a prudent step to take and ensure we can maintain momentum on the project.”

      Like bollards for front of shops, so excavators or tractors are used for ram raids.

  12. Dear Sporting Shooters,
    OUR LATEST MEDIA RELEASE:

    Superintendent Karyn Malthus

    Superintendent Malthus says, ‘Keeping firearms owners safe is a key focus for Police’. Yeah Right!

    “Safe from who?”, asks Neville Dodd President of the Sporting Shooters Association.

    From our perspective the biggest threat and the most damage to firearm owners in New Zealand unquestionably comes from the present government and Police.

    Between them they have marginalised the firearm community, confiscated and destroyed treasured and historic firearms, made it harder to obtain a firearms licence, not forgetting year long delays in licence renewals, carried out home invasions, the destruction of licensed owners property, produced regulations that will close shooting clubs and ranges, and put owners at risk by neglecting to secure their addresses and personal details. In addition they have made it harder for landowners to control pest animals on their property. Next we face the Registration of all firearms with the inherent risks that poses for law abiding owners to say nothing of the huge impost on the taxpayer ($1 million per week).

    At the same time as all of this the number of shootings of civilians by police appears to be on the increase.

    So superintendent we can do without the focus of Police, thank you very much.

    REGISTRATION TODAY = CONFISCATION TOMORROW
    WHAT COMES NEXT? A POLICE STATE.
    Know your history
    END

    • This burglary has been minimized, with the slow drip feed, supposed low numbers but finding it is increasing.
      .
      …. Confirmation today that a register of firearm owners stolen from Auckland Police station covers 2003-2018, means over 67,000 firearm owners and their private addresses may have been in the hands of criminals. ….
      …. Police to play the theft down …..
      .
      ….. While firearms will have been kept securely, determined thieves armed with tools, knowledge and time can break into safes and other security measures.
      A major protection for owners is therefore that criminals don’t know which properties have firearms.
      .
      …. digital register is fallible when managed by Police.
      .
      ….. full firearm register will potentially provide another shopping list for criminals.”

      https://www.thedailyexaminer.co.nz/over-67000-people-and-their-property-endangered-by-police-negligence/
      .
      So the police do not accept that they are endangering members of the law abiding public.
      .
      They claim they “Serve & Protect” but serve the gangs & terrorists in New Zealand.

    I gave up Stuff and the Horrid about two years ago, breaking an ingrained habit of many years after finally becoming sick of the juvenile, idiot nonsense they promote as “news”, and the entrenched, lecturing stances they take on things like climate change and the avalanche of Maorification currently engulfing the nation. I kept on skimming Newhub though, because it often seemed the least of the available evils. But lately they too have descended further and further into the pit of mindless drivel. I’m giving up.

  18. The latest data come from a study in Britain released last week. Researchers reviewed every one of the 185 deaths that followed a positive Sars-Cov-2 test in English kids and teenagers in 2020 and 2021 – the equivalent of about 1,100 deaths in the United States. They found that 104, almost 60 percent, were not linked to Covid.
    Only 81 children and teenagers actually died of Covid over the two-year period, about 1 percent of all deaths in people under 20. But even that figure sharply overstates the risk to healthy children. Of the 81 kids and teens who died, 61 had an underlying condition. The most common was severe neurodisability, in 27 cases.
    In other words, 20 healthy English children and teenagers died of Covid during the first two years of the epidemic – fewer than one a month. England has more than 13 million people under 20.

    She said the risk posed by Covid-19 to staff at the border is “much lower than it was previously”.

    “Alongside high rates of vaccination amongst border workers the number of passengers arriving by air with Covid-19 is less than 3%,” she said.

    Mandates will remain in place for health and disability workers due to their close contact with vulnerable and immunocompromised people.

  22. Taupo is the latest Green & socialist paradise to ban cars & terminally fuck their town centre.

    ……”The final phase of the four-stage Taupō Town Centre Transformation project is under way which will see Roberts St and Lake Terrace transformed into a “people-friendly environment”, with one-way traffic access along the former stretch of State Highway 1.”……

    The “improvements” will allow unemployed yoofs to take over the once bustling area, drugs to be dealt openly, graffiti to be applied out of sight, cover for tourists to be mugged & provide ample space for beggars & street people. The resultant closure of upmarket businesses will see the proliferation of drop in centres, second hand shops, needle exchange hubs & open up new venues for “Bottle O” outlets. Parking will be moved out of the town centre into residential streets.

    The ratepayers will meekly accept their part as financiers of the proposed slum.

      Here in Christchurch the Hoyts EntX in the city centre has been a huge failure. The food court is being converted into a Timezone in a last ditch attempt to make the facility pay. All those eateries out of business, poor fuckers. And why? Because the anti-car ideology driving the rebuild has fucked the city centre. Going to see a movie at EntX means being ripped off for parking, a stiff walk away from the venue, often in cold and unpleasant conditions. Going to Hoyts at Riccarton Westfield Mall, however, means parking in the same complex, for free, and walking into the venue undercover all the way…

      • The Charities Act 2005 states

        …..”To avoid doubt, if the purposes of a trust, society, or an institution include a non-charitable purpose (for example, advocacy) that is merely ancillary to a charitable purpose of the trust, society, or institution, the presence of that non-charitable purpose does not prevent the trustees of the trust, the society, or the institution from qualifying for registration as a charitable entity.”…..

        And this how dear old Motormouth McCroskie got skewered. Family First does not relieve poverty, advance education or religion, or any other matter of benefit to the community. All it does is advocate for narrow minded, bigoted legislation which Bob likes & wants pushed down the throats of everyone else.

        The Supreme Court has it’s faults, amongst which are rampant feminism & socialism but in this case had the good sense to discern between unadulterated advocacy & charity.

  23. 🔥🏠🔥

    House prices may be declining and mortgage interest rates may be rising, but the amount first home buyers are paying to get their own home remains at or near record highs.

    Not only are first home buyers with a low deposit paying higher prices on average than their counterparts with a full 20% deposit, they are also borrowing a lot more.
    The average mortgage approved in May for first home buyers with less than a 20% deposit was $127,000 more than the average mortgage approved for first home buyers with a minimum 20% deposit.
    And low deposit buyers will be paying through the teeth for the privilege. Banks typically charge additional fees and higher interest rates for low equity loans, to reflect the higher level of risk involved.
    So low deposit borrowers will almost certainly be facing considerably higher mortgage payments than their counterparts with a full deposit, and because they would also have less equity in their home, they would have less room to restructure their loan if they faced unexpected financial hardship.

    • It’s an ugly trade Curious & I suspect that the push to allow abortion up to full term has it’s genesis in some need for human tissue for research which I seriously doubt will improve our lives. Eg Pfizer’s poisonous “vaccine”.

      For what it’s worth my position has been constant for decades.

      It is that abortion should be neither encouraged or discouraged but be available up until the end of the first trimester. After then it should be rare & only allowed to save the mother’s life or to abort a non viable foetus.

      If any of Skydaddy’s helpers feel better & more holy by disagreeing with my stance then let them fill their boots.

    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2022/06/cdhb-launches-review-after-man-accused-of-fatally-stabbing-woman-confirmed-as-mental-health-patient-on-community-leave.html
    The Canterbury District Health Board has launched a full review after a mental health patient on “community leave” allegedly murdered a woman in a random stabbing in Christchurch.

    On Saturday, Laisa Maraia Waka was fatally stabbed in the street while she was on her way home from work in the suburb of Sockburn. She was found with critical injuries and, despite medical assistance, died at the scene.

    “I can confirm that the man accused of her murder was a patient of the DHB’s specialist mental health service based at Hillmorton, who had been on community leave.

    • I watched the launch last night from upstairs.
      Wasn’t quite sure where Mahia was in the dark but it showed up pretty quick after launch.
      That pic must have been a professional job. It disappeared after it reached 14 Km.
      Pretty impressive to watch.

  32. Covid-19: Nurse’s dismissal for anti-vax social media posts ‘justified’

    A Wairarapa nurse’s claim of unjustified dismissal after posting “professionally inappropriate” and anti-vax messages on Facebook has been knocked back by the Employment Relations Authority (ERA).

    Registered palliative care nurse Amanda Turner was sacked in April 2021 for posting what her employer, the Wairarapa District Health Board, considered inappropriate material about Covid-19 vaccinations matters and “comparative religious issues”.

    The ERA’s summary said concerns were raised with Turner’s nurse manager that she had posted “anti-vaccination information/advice on her Facebook account and criticism of government actions to protect the community from Covid that was potentially impacting on staff’s vaccine uptake”.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/129113530/covid19-nurses-dismissal-for-antivax-social-media-posts-justified

    Beck said Turner said she was aware of the DHB’s social media policy but thought it did not extend to private Facebook posts.

    “Ms Turner’s suggestion that her Facebook posts were private does not bear scrutiny as she shared them with up to 200 others and patently the complaints about such would not have arisen if they had not been accessed by a co-worker and brought to the attention of the DHB.”

    Beck said there was a “significant risk” of harm to the reputation of the DHB had her postings been viewed by the wider public including her local community.

    Already we know that the DHB was failing so not really anything that wasn’t known.
    Now they complain they do not have enough staff.
    The cancel culture and the lack of up to date information is getting worse.

  34. V2’s 6.24pm link referred to a palliative care nurse who was dismissed by the Wairarapa DHB for posting her opinions on Facebook. One of those opinions was “For example, describing it in one posting as a ‘murderous vaccine’.”

    Today’s https://expose-news.com/2022/06/28/scaffold-tissue-and-nanowires-most-likely-cause-sads/?cmid=66ee9a3e-7c04-4e42-a7a8-2a305c75b97d has an interesting & detailed look at what pathologists & embalmers are finding in the corpses of those vaccinated against Covid but dying from unexplained causes. From the article:

    …..”Reviewing images shown by Mike Adams of synthetic tissue growing inside people after being injected with Covid “vaccines,” she said, “this is most likely the cause of ‘Sudden Adult Death Syndrome’.”…….

    ……”The samples pulled out of the veins and arteries of Covid vaccinated corpses shocked the world and exposed that something more than just “vaccination” is happening with the Covid vaxx. The fact that mainstream media did not pick up on this story is more proof we’re in dystopian times.”…….

    Whether you are for or against the vaccines it’s worth at least a quick read.

  35. Murphy showed up at Mass one Sunday and the priest almost fell down when he saw him.
    He’d never been to church in his life. After Mass, the priest caught up with him an said, ” Murphy, I am so glad ya decided to come to Mass. What made ya come”…?
    Murphy said, “I got to be honest with you Father, a while back, I misplaced me hat and I really, really love that hat. I know that McGlynn had a hat just like mine and I knew he came to church every Sunday. I also knew that he had to take off his hat during Mass and figured he would leave it in the back of the church. So, I was going to leave after Communion and steal McGlynn’s hat”…
    The priest said, ” Well, Murphy, I notice that ya didn’t steal McGlynn’s hat.
    What changed your mind”…?
    Murphy replied, ” Well, after I heard your sermon on the 10 Commandments I decided that I didn’t need to steal McGlynn’s hat after all”…..
    With a tear in his eye the priest gave Murphy a big smile and said; “After I talked about ‘Thou Shalt Not Steal’ ya decided you would rather do without your hat than burn in hell, eh”…?

    Murphy slowly shook his head. “No, Father, after ya talked about ‘Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery’ I remembered where I left me hat”…..

  36. Wellington transport: Greens say another tunnel not helpful for low-carbon future, National asks why not more lanes for cars
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/politics/2022/06/wellington-transport-greens-say-another-tunnel-not-helpful-for-low-carbon-future-national-asks-why-not-more-lanes-for-cars.html

    It includes light rail running from the railway station to the southern suburbs, digging a new tunnel through Mount Victoria with two lanes for buses and two for cars, banishing cars from the existing tunnel, and upgrades to Basin Reserve to reduce congestion, including extending the Arras Tunnel.

    “It just won’t work. Eventually, you’ll have to have cars through Mount Victoria tunnel because 58 percent of Wellingtonians drive to work,” said ACT leader David Seymour.

    National also wants to see all four lanes for private cars through the proposed new tunnel

    But Greens transport spokesperson Julie Anne Genter said: “We all know that more lanes for cars isn’t going to make congestion better, it’s going to make it worse”.

  37. Ancient human fossils found in the ‘Cradle of Humankind’ are a million years older than expected

    All of the Australopithecus-bearing cave sediments may be close to a million years older.

    An innovative fossil dating method developed by Darryl Granger, a professor of earth, atmospheric, and planetary sciences in Purdue University’s College of Science, has revealed that multiple fossil remains of early human ancestors were found at the site of Sterkfontein Caves could be much, much older than previously thought.

    In a study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a team of scientists used space particles to analyze bones in the Sterkfontein Caves, part of a major fossil site in northern South Africa known as the “Cradle of Humankind.”

    Their findings pushed the age of some of these fossils back by more than a million years. This would make them older than Dinkinesh, also known as Lucy, the world’s most famous Australopithecus fossil.
    A new discovery could lead to the development of drugs that halt Alzheimer’s
    Cradle of civilization

    For decades, paleoanthropologists and other scientists have studied Sterkfontein and other cave sites in the Cradle of Humankind to shed light on human and environmental evolution over the past four million years.

    In 1924, Professor Robert Burns Young from Buxton Limeworks in the Taung district of the North West Province of South Africa sent two crates of fossils from Taung to Professor Raymond Dart of the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.

    Dart immediately recognized the significance of a small fossil skill that belonged to a creature that was neither fully ape nor man. It represented one of our ancestors – an extinct hominin closely related to humans – which he called Australopithecus africanus, meaning “southern ape of Africa.”

    Since then, thousands of fossils, including hominid fossils, have been uncovered at the “Cradle of Humankind,” a UNESCO World Heritage Site that comprises a variety of fossil-bearing cave deposits, including at Sterkfontein Caves. The latter was made famous by the discovery of the first adult Australopithecus, an ancient hominin, in 1936. Hundreds of Australopithecus fossils have been found there, including the well-known Mrs. Ples, and the nearly complete skeleton known as Little Foot.
    The fossils are much older than we thought

    Now, Granger and a team of scientists, including researchers from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and the University Toulouse Jean Jaurès in France, have discovered that not only Little Foot, but all of the Australopithecus-bearing cave sediments date from about 3.4 to 3.7 million years old, rather than 2-2.5 million years old as scientists previously theorized.

    That age places the fossils toward the beginning of the Australopithecus era, rather than near the end. Dinkinesh, who hails from Ethiopia, is 3.2 million years old, and her species, Australopithecus africanus, hails back to about 3.9 million years old.

    “Sterkfontein has more Australopithecus fossils than anywhere else in the world,” Granger said in a statement. “But it’s hard to get a good date on them. People have looked at the animal fossils found near them and compared the ages of cave features like flowstones and gotten a range of different dates. What our data does is resolve these controversies. It shows that these fossils are old – much older than we originally thought.”
    Scientists used accelerator mass spectrometry to measure radioactive nuclides in the rocks

    Now, there are a few ways to date cave sediments. In East Africa, where many hominin fossils have been found, the Great Rift Valley volcanoes lay down layers of ash. Scientists use those layers to estimate the age of a fossil. In the caves in South Africa, researchers don’t have the “luxury.” They usually employ other animal fossils found around the bones to estimate their age or calcite flowstone deposited in the cave.

    The fallacy in the technique is that bones can shift in the cave, and young flowstone can be deposited in old sediment, making those methods potentially incorrect. A more accurate method would be to date the actual rocks in which the fossils were found. The concrete-like matrix that embeds the fossil, called breccia, is the material Granger and his team analyzes.

    Granger and the team used accelerator mass spectrometry to measure radioactive nuclides in the rocks, as well as geologic mapping and a deeper understanding of how cave sediments accumulate to determine the age of the Australopithecus-bearing sediments at Sterkfontein.
    The dating method gives ‘reliable’ results

    The team also made detailed maps of the cave deposits and revealed how animal fossils of different ages would have been intermixed during excavations in the 1930s and 1940s, which, in all possibilities, would have led to decades of confusion about the previous ages.

    “What I hope is that this convinces people that this dating method gives reliable results,” Granger said. “Using this method, we can more accurately place ancient humans and their relatives in the correct periods, in Africa, and elsewhere across the world.”

    The age of the fossils influences scientists’ understanding of the living landscape of the time. It could answer several complex and pressing questions – the evolution of humans in a particular place, their fit in the ecosystem, and who their closest relatives are and were.

    Dating the fossils at Sterkfontein back to their right age is a significant step towards solving the entire picture.

    Abstract: Sterkfontein is the most prolific single source of Australopithecus fossils, the vast majority of which were recovered from Member 4, a cave breccia now exposed by erosion and weathering at the landscape surface. A few other Australopithecus fossils, including the StW 573 skeleton, come from subterranean deposits [T. C. Partridge et al., Science 300, 607–612 (2003); R. J. Clarke, K. Kuman, J. Hum. Evol. 134, 102634 (2019)]. Here, we report a cosmogenic nuclide isochron burial date of 3.41 ± 0.11 million years (My) within the lower middle part of Member 4, and simple burial dates of 3.49 ± 0.19 My in the upper middle part of Member 4 and 3.61 ± 0.09 My in Jacovec Cavern. Together with a previously published isochron burial date of 3.67 ± 0.16 My for StW 573 [D. E. Granger et al., Nature 522, 85–88 (2015)], these results place nearly the entire Australopithecus assemblage at Sterkfontein in the mid-Pliocene, contemporaneous with Australopithecus afarensis in East Africa. Our ages for the fossil-bearing breccia in Member 4 are considerably older than the previous ages of ca. 2.1 to 2.6 My interpretation from flowstones associated with the same deposit. We show that these previously dated flowstones are stratigraphically intrusive within Member 4 and that they therefore underestimate the true age of the fossils.

  38. The Complete Subjugation of NZ’s Media
    Labour has corrupted our media through the Public Interest Journalism Fund
    https://thebfd.co.nz/2022/06/20/the-complete-subjugation-of-nzs-media/

    That is essentially how the Public Interest Journalism Fund is set up – like a loan. Not only do applicants have to thoroughly explain how they will adhere to the particular co-governance model of understanding the Treaty in order to get the funding in the first place, they have to agree that should they deviate from presenting this perspective NZ On Air can say that they have defaulted on the agreement and demand the funding be repaid.

    Additionally, the agreement stipulates that in the event of a default:

    “You indemnify us against all liability we may have to any third party as a result…”

    Oh, and they can “takeover” the project too. In which case they would demand all of your resources be at their disposal and/or get another company to complete the project – adhering to the correct narrative of course. In the situation of a “takeover”, the agreement states:

    “You hereby irrevocably constitute and appoint us as your attorney-in-fact with full power and authority…”
