  1. Dark and damp here with aqua descending from above this morning.

    Might have to go looking for and root out Spies with “Chinky Sounding Names” who could be lurking in the dark parts of the King Country today. Unlike the Government who won’t name their Spies, I will, when I catch them. Just doing my bit.

  2. Thank you The Ancient Hooligan, that will be very helpful. I watched a 60 minutes documentary last night about Chinese spies and police and the army going into Fiji and removing any persons they choose and the police of Fiji did nothing!!!!!!!. I think we have more far more reason to be very frightened of the Chinese than we do Russia where the governments of the western world seem to have a great dislike/hatred of. That 60 minutes programme was very scary and I would not be going to Fiji any time soon. well in my lifetime that is for sure.

    • Lizzie, the Chinese are not acting any differently in Fiji than they are in Vanuatu, the Solomon’s, PNG or probably Africa.

      Winston Peters in the late 1980’s warned this country about the influence of China in this country and to wary of them. he was roundly castigated, but he has proven to be correct. China is doing what China has always done, spy on other countries and their own people. They always have and always will.

    • Wow lizzie
      Quoting 60 minutes from the teevee !!
      and being scared by it
      ha ha

      Were these the same 60 minutes critters who went into a ‘no go zone’ in Sweden after being told not to by the local police. Where they left s guy in a wheelchair.
      Be Kind

      Is it the same 60 minutes mob that were involved in a kidnapping in the Middle East- illegally of course.

      Quoting teevee shite does nothing for credibility.
      Hint, it is usually very very very very biased.

  3. My annoying gripe of the day – waking around 4.30 ish – no, not with a pressing bladder wake up – and then unable to get back to sleep. Active mind on overdrive.
    About 5 ish I do go to the loo to take that thought away but no – still awake. so then anytime from about 5.30 – get up. Normal bedtime around 11. So about 5-6 hours sleep a lot of nights.
    Now SB can get on and tell us how he exists on well less – I am just not sure how. And obviously AH and Lizziep are usually up well by now,
    Anyway bit of morning “spillover” showers going on, meant to be a southerly change mid morning and we are off to Timaru for the day.
    I feel for the people on the bridge – what a terrible way to go.

    • the bridge fuckup is unreal ay hp, im blown away how much collapsed so easily. “lucky” it was 1am when it happened i guess and not rush hour or something but yeah shit of a way to go.

      as for your sleeping thing mrs sb the last 3 nights has been waking at exactly 1.18am then cant get back to sleep which creates a very very tired grumpy and very yelly wife 🙁 . last night i was still up watching youtube when she appeared and broke down crying at 1.20am, shes still awake and grinding teeth in frustration so guess the kids best walk on egg shells today.

      sleep is a motherfarker at times, i gave up being frustrated about it 20odd years ago and just embraced it! lots of ppl wish there were more hours in the day to get stuff done so thats what i try do with some of that sleepless time.
      you could become the waimo weirdo (if theres an opening for the position 🙂 ) and be the 4.30am gardener or go for a walk/ bike ride etc.

      • Was the captain aware of how the vessel would react to emergency re-start procedures?

        If he knew that there was a chance that the vessel would initiate a hard turn, it would be a bad decision to restart if the ship would have likely drifted past the bridge pylon if he had done nothing.

    • Switch off your phones and YSB and all earlier. It winds your brain up and keeps the adrenalin going. You need to give it time to cool down.
      I heard just yesterday that eating a banana in the evening is good. Causes the body to produce melatonin and that is a sleep hormone.

      Was the same last night. Worked late then couldn’t sleep.

      Oh and stop drinking around tea time then ya bladder doesn’t piss you off.

  4. Morning all, fine up this way with a big moon. Haven’t even bothered with the news this morning, I’m busy at work and need to be in the right frame of mind to get everything sorted out so I can escape at lunch time tomorrow. I’m going up to Russell to give drinking and fishing lessons to the locals.

  7. A Southlander is being interviewed by a survivalist magazine…….

    “If you were shipwrecked on a desert island, what’s the one thing you’d like with you Drew?”

    “A sheep.”

    “Nice. All that lovely roast lamb, mutton broth & some delicious chops will keep you going for ages. Plus the fleece will keep you warm, you can make tools from the bones & you could use the pelt for a hammock.”

    “Oh yeah, I hadn’t thought of that.”

    • looks like i got ripped off at school during sex ed, i had to fumble my way through that stuff on my own with zero tips and tricks.

      to be fair tho a large chunk of kids are sexually active at 13/14 now anyways, its not right but its naive to think theyre all innocent and need protecting from this shit. theyve all got smartphones with porn, tic tok and slutty whore idols anyways.

      • I’ve definitely noticed a change in knowledge about matters sexual over the past six or seven decades IAASB. Not long into my first year at boarding school one of the prefects was discovered ‘in flagrante delicto’ halfway up the back passage of the (male) chapel organ player. Even though it was a religious college such behaviour was not to be tolerated & both were summarily expelled.

        At assembly the following morning the Principal, a loquacious prick gifted with infinite stupidity, waxed long & eloquently about sin & “the beast with two backs”.

        Not one person in the junior school had a fucking idea of what the silly old fool was banging on about.

  8. After being married for thirty years, a wife asked her husband to describe her.

    He looked at her for a while, and then said, “You’re A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K.”

    She asked, “What does that mean?”

    He said, “Adorable, Beautiful, Cute, Delightful, Elegant, Foxy, Gorgeous, Hot.”

    She smiled happily and said, “Oh, that’s so lovely. What about I, J, K?”

    He said, “I’m Just Kidding!”

  9. Conversation with a normie:
    Me: sorry we missed seeing you before Christmas when you had Covid

    Her: yes. It was because I was “unvaccinated”

    Me: oh, so you’re not jabbed?

    Her: Oh, no, I was jabbed and boosted, but I hadn’t had the most recent winter booster so that’s why I got Covid.

    Me: You know the jabs don’t stop you getting Covid right?

    Her: well they worked for me

    Me: [non-plussed and sensing I’m dealing with a moron]. Well, it seems you survived

    Her: it was actually pretty bad. I was ill for almost a week.

    Me: Hardly a deadly virus then.

    Her: well, it was for many

    Me: How many people do you know that died or were hospitalised during the pandemic

    Her: well, none. But that’s because we’re not even fifty yet. Older people died.

    Me: do your parents know anyone who died.

    Her: no.

    Me: [laughing] well, be sure to get your next booster then.

  10. The job of Progressive Prosecutors to create the “virtuous cycle” ….. Yeah right, Humbug …. & this guy proved it was a step too far for even San Francisco.
    But then lands a nice Job at Berkley law school, California to bring on more Progressivism in the Judiciary.

    Former SF DA Chesa Boudin Says Victims Don’t Have Rights
    https://youtu.be/lir0yC8EDUk
    6 mins 03 secs : Mar 25, 2024

    Former [voter recalled] San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin says at a conference at Berkeley Law that victims don’t have rights under the Constitution.

    So that defendants have the same rights as the victims, so the system should not cater for the victim.
    That has been staring in our faces in New Zealand for a few decades now, but covered over by “lip service” like ‘victim impact reports’ & ‘victim support’, etc., that are ‘2 facedly’ allowed by the controlling authorities.

    But the NZ “Cultural Reports” are to be actioned as if they are the ‘defendants rights’.

    To see that, is to also see what is in practice in our systemic education in adjusting history & its values, that now many in professional elite class accept as the new normal, and flows deep into the systemic New Zealand Judiciary.

  11. For those with an interest in kid’s education (your own kids or grandkids) then this interview –Paul Brennan with Tim O’Connor from Auckland Grammar is worth 20 minutes of your time. I knew the NZ education system is now a mess but I did not realise how bad it is. An example given –some schools cannot attract teachers to teach physics at a senior level. Some of the kids want to go on to University to do engineering, so they have teach themselves the physics ( or Chemistry) they need –not sure how they show the university they have met the entry requirements.
    There is no uniform standard through out the country anymore.

  12. Ol’ fruity farrar

    He reminds me of the maori.
    They can be one quarter or one eight maori but identify only with maoriness.

    I note that farrar did a thing years ago about his ancestry and maybe a quarter jewishness but that is pretty much all he acknowledges now.
    he has become increasingly left in recent years ( the jew thing. Politically he is fair and square Demonrat by US standards; stinky left New York jew by his postings; Diagnosis > 98.5% full on TDS )

    10 years ago he seemed to display neutrality .
    Now he is going more and more left by each quarter.
    I’d say he will be unashamedly hard left (Bradbury country) in 3 or 4 years but likely go fully unhinged if Trump wins and is able to actually take the presidency in January 2025.

    He is so out of tune with his readers I wonder why they bother, let alone fund this very lefty activity.
    I have a glance in about twice a week to fruityblog. Less and less shit to bother with as time goes by. I generally have a bo peep to see by how much his readers disagree with his RINO shit.
    I wonder if the missus is the one making him ‘come out’ with the pinko gig.
    Clearly he has been a pinko a long time- Slater called him out years ago for this – but now it is shameless leftyness.

    This one is interesting.
    Normally there are some downticks on comments.
    Often for Che Guava- whom I find valid and insightful -get downticked more than up; even when viable and logical.
    This one where Fruity Farrar praises Grunter Robber sons valedictory speech is interesting.
    Pretty much every comment – I glanced at 2/3 – is anti robbers son/farrar with zero downticks
    eg 19-0; 23 -0; 14-0; 27-0; interesting
    https://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/2024/03/highlights_from_grants_valedictory.html

    Read if you wish.
    I can see farrar as being full-on in support of turning Russia into a jew-inspired communist state 1917 to 1924.

    • Even twelve years ago DPF identified with the wet left of the Nats & he’s been on a port tack ever since.

      What I’ve never been able to understand is why his blog attracts authoritarian, hard right, religious fruitcases as commentators. Kowtow, Tony Stuart et al would be a better fit with Baity or Bob McCoskrie.

    • “ten years ago he displayed neutrality”

      I remember him when he was in the young Nats and at party conferences was always supportive of things like Ministry of Wimmens Affairs and Treaty issues .
      Never thought of him as a conservative then and certainly has that left bent now.

  13. Wow I feel so bad
    I mean jeepers, China spied on NZ.
    Oh this is terrible !!!!

    gee wizz.
    And China , wow they like, went into Tibet in the 1950s. Naughty China.

    The US is so saintly.
    They have only invaded Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan etc this century.
    Interfered in the elections of more than 3/4 of South American, Central American and Caribbean countries.
    Not merely ‘having a look’ but changing outcomes.

    US drone bomb multiple countries like Somalia and Pakistan (an ‘ally’)
    They have armed troops on Germany and Japan nearly a century after WW2.
    In truth US does not want them spending 2% GDP on ‘defense’ . ergo why it is never enforced.

    The US while illegally in Iranian waters in 1988 shot down Iran Air Flight 655 and killed 290 people and would not admit nor apologize…. but that is OK.
    Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down by Ukraine by Ukrainians but hey, sticking with the fake narrative, lets blame Russia.
    Always Russia BAD.
    They have supplied weapons to Saudi to attack and murder Yemen people for years but when Yemen people push back ..ooh noes

    Where really is Sergei and Yulia Skripal. What really happened ?
    What has really happened to Kate Middleton.
    The British goo-mint lie like bastards., Always have, always will, will always be duplicitous but hey Mother fkg England. Rule Britannia. (bit not over illegal immigrants)
    And they never spy. Oh no.
    Bit of a shame about the Cambridge Five, Old Chap; what ho!

    The US is spying on you through you Google Android or Apple Cellphone (Yeah, they are) .
    Why do you think they made sure Nokia and Canadian Blackberry (RIM) were killed off? Duh!

    They can read your Gmail any day of the week.
    They have been building profile on you through Xkeyscore for over a decade now.
    This picks up your fakebook activity, linked in, Instagram and other computer activity.
    You YSB login is tied to an email so your comments are linked.
    Five eyes spies on you – you know for your safety.
    This comment is being ID’d and linked to me.
    Five eyes countries spy on each others citizens to circle around local privacy laws so it is all A..OK. She’ll be jake.

    So imagine my concern that the Chinese goo-mint spied on the rotting scum in parliament in 2021 that were treating us like criminals and locking us in our homes, forcing us to take medical procedures or lose income.
    the very people who told us to ‘be kind’ and the same ones who called us a River of Filth.
    Saint Jizzinda, Saint Grunt, Saint Brylcreem, Saint 3 Pies.

    Those bastard Chinese have been building schools and ports in the Pacific countries.
    I’ve seen them, I can tell you. Its awful, these schools I saw in Vanuatu. Allowing education.
    I’m just surprised the US has not bombed these by now ////
    They sure curtailed the education in Libya where literacy for male and female was over 90% in this country where church was separated from State.

    Well golly gosh, I will speak with my Chinese green grocer this very afternoon and ask her to convey my concerns… my very deep concerns to… the Government of China.

    “We’re all getting, unfortunately, a little less intelligent at a whole population level,” says epidemiologist Professor Michael Baker. He’s responding to new research suggesting a steep decline in IQ scores among COVID infected individuals.

    A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine indicates that even mild cases of COVID can result in deficits in memory retention, reasoning skills and cognitive planning.

    Researchers at Imperial College London, examined the cognitive performance of approximately 113,000 individuals who had previously contracted the virus. Individuals who had experienced more severe COVID symptoms, requiring intensive care, exhibited an average decline of approximately nine IQ points.

    Losing seven IQ points equates to a ten-year ageing effect.

    Individuals with persistent symptoms, often associated with long COVID, demonstrated an IQ decrease of around six points, impacting daily functioning. Even individuals who had recovered and were no longer symptomatic showed a slight decline in IQ scores, approximately three points lower than those who had never been infected.

    Baker describes the phenomenon of “brain fog” reported by many COVID patients, as a significant cognitive impairment affecting memory and complex thinking processes.

    He notes that brain damage caused by COVID may be irreversible.

    Talk about moving the goalpost. French cities reconsider plans for low-emission zones after facing stiff opposition from citizens. The government (unconvincingly) justified the reversal of the reviled policies citing significant ”improvement” to air quality, making restrictions unnecessary.

    The law mandated Low Emission Zones in all urban areas with over 150,000 inhabitants by the end of 2024, excluding the most polluting vehicles based on a national sticker system.

    Most cities like Strasbourg and Marseille are now postponing implementation indefinitely due to concerns about the impact on low-income families and public resistance against what’s seen as an unworkable environmental mandate.

    This decision is allegedly supported by an improvement in air quality (environmental groups aren’t convinced) but may (more likely) also be inspired by a desire to avoid sparking a Yellow Vest-like backlash among car users, particularly lower-income households. The vehicles of low-income families make up the majority of cars targeted by the low-emission scheme. However, France’s largest cities, Paris and Lyon, will still implement the proposed system.

    Critics view this as a strategic decision ahead of European elections, aimed at appeasing disgruntled voters.

    In a small town in B.C., Canada, copies of a book challenging narratives favourable to some Indigenous people (which, in itself, is considered racist by many in media and academia) were being distributed by the mayor’s wife. The mayor ultimately denounced her actions for the sake of political correctness.

    The Quesnel city council unanimously voted to denounce the book “Grave Error: How the Media Misled Us (and the Truth about Residential Schools).” The book critically examines claims that lack solid evidence of mass graves of Indigenous children allegedly killed while attending residential schools.

    Indigenous Residential Schools were run by the government and operated by churches from the 1880s through much of the 20th century.

    Contributors say this is a free speech issue and there is a need to confront uncomfortable truths. Opponents view the book as hurtful and disrespectful to Indigenous communities and is offensive because it supposedly downplays the harms of residential schools.

    Editor’s note: Political correctness prioritises Indigenous feelings over truth, branding challenges as “wrongthink.” Similarly, in New Zealand, politically correct narratives often cast European colonists as villains and Māori as heroes, despite nuanced truths.

    A comprehensive analysis by Visual Capitalist and Derivation.co illustrates that almost half of the world’s more than 7,100 languages are considered “Endangered”. Some even face extinction, but not Te Reo Māori!

    Currently, over 88 million people speak endangered languages. Approximately 100 languages are at risk of total extinction within decades if no action is taken.

    The top four countries with the most endangered languages are Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Australia, and US Indigenous communities.

    However, new AI tools are aiding in preserving endangered languages, while efforts to teach school children Te Reo Māori in New Zealand, and Hawaiian in the US, have shown success. ( But at what cost to taxpayers?)

  20. https://www.1news.co.nz/2024/03/27/govt-should-pay-rates-like-everyone-else-auckland-mayor/
    Auckland Mayor Wayne Brown has called for the Government to pay rates on its properties in the city, claiming the change would bring in more than $36m a year for New Zealand’s biggest city.

    Government-owned properties in Tāmaki Makaurau included schools and hospitals. At the moment, the properties were exempt from rates. Auckland Council estimated the value of those rates at more than $36 million in 2023/24 values.

    “Why should central Government get a free ride? They use our infrastructure but don’t pay the bill,” he said this morning, in a statement.

    Other properties including airports, churches and port land were also exempt, he added, urging law reform around non-rateable land.

    “Aucklanders are struggling to make ends meet,” Brown said. “Everyday Aucklanders are doing it tough.”

    Brown said it was a case of fairness. “Aucklanders are being shortchanged. We put more into Treasury’s coffers than we get in return,” he said.

    • Don’t like this one. Like his focus on cutting spending, but its only a matter of time before the minions put a price tag on the school oval, and sell it to developers. Somethings should be priceless.

      Economic threats, in the era of cheap debt, are a joke. 95% of state projects over run on budgets. We need to get serious. When a project, like a state council, over-runs its budget, the funds reach a hard stop. A crisis. A liquidation point. Sell up the team and the project. The funds stop. The knee-jerk reaction has become a shrug, with a sheepish handing over of the state credit card, and a carefree promise that our grandkids might pay later.

      $50 mill was wasted ‘looking at a cycle bridge CONCEPT’
      Millions on a tramway to Mt Roskill that never happened
      Millions and millions on cycle lanes that steal existing road and are hardly used

      Brown has been a disappointment.
      I never voted for him. I expected this.
      He has pushed buses hard…. is all I hear.

      They never look at cutting expenditure
      His deputy – Dizzy Desley Simpson; married to Goodfellow, long term drone Chairman of the Gnats -was hand in hand with Phar Goff and never looked at cost reduction/curtailment nor value for money at any point.
      With Brown still not looking at cost curtailment in any meaningful sense.

      the pathetic City Rail link is years behind and Billions over budget.
      There’s ya money leak.
      Bring back the MOW.
      This all transfers wealth away from the ratepayer to private hands, with shitty results like broken motorways from the time they open.

  21. 3 Very Unusual Things That Are Happening In The Heavens Right Now.

    Within the past few days, so much has been happening in the heavens. There has been an enormous geomagnetic storm that has caused “a major disturbance in Earth’s magnetic field”, a comet that only comes around once every 71 years is racing through the inner solar system, and a lunar eclipse just painted the sky red over much of the planet. And of course we are just a couple of weeks away from the Great American Eclipse of 2024.

  22. Just before the stroke of midnight, Congress pulls off a miracle and passes an omnibus bill to save us from a “government shutdown!”
    The heroes have saved the day, adding another $1.2 Trillion of spending to the $34 Trillion debt load.!
    It means that both parties embrace policies that are leading to our financial bankruptcy. This further threatens the dollar as the world’s reserve currency and will result in catastrophic changes worldwide that nearly no one in Congress seems capable of imagining. Republicans capitulating to Democrat demands to “save us” from a government shutdown may temporarily keep the appearance that “this is fine,” but in the end they are making the coming crash all the worse.

    • Seymour has not apologized wg.
      Depends on how you see these points on making amends.

      Though about a week before the election he did say that the Covid Inquiry should have some forum for the public to raise & put questions to be considered.
      Sort of meant that he would not oppose Winston Peters, who earlier before the Wellington Protest was saying this & more if you want to read it all on his face book link.
      .
      4th October 2021 …. ‘no-jab means no dole and no parole’ …..
      https://www.facebook.com/winstonpeters/posts/6901232156569519/
      .
      David Seymour woke up belatedly by the polls, that he stuffed up, so put this in.
      .
      June 2023 ….. “Restricting public feedback to online submissions and some ‘invite-only’ forums and hui will only serve to further alienate sections of society who objected strongly to some elements of our Covid-19 response.
      .
      “One of the aims of the Inquiry should be to offer a voice to people who feel excluded and work to bring New Zealand together as a community.
      ACT would like to see more inclusive, open public forums included as part of this exercise. ….

      https://www.act.org.nz/covid_19_inquiry_needs_broader_public_input
      .
      Though I think the media did not allow much trumpeting by ACT on this also even though Seymour repeated it again.
      .
      “ 29 September, 2023 …. ACT will take the politics out of the Royal Commission into the Government’s Covid-19 response by allowing all New Zealanders to have their say on what should be investigated through a new crowdsourced terms of reference”, says ACT Leader David Seymour.
      https://www.act.org.nz/taking_the_politics_out_of_the_covid_19_royal_commission
      .
      So those 2 did get the National Party, Luxon to swallow this.
      Those were the cards that were dealt of the pack, & what we have to play with as they have followed through. …
      .
      Public submissions to the Royal Commission of Inquiry into COVID-19 Lessons Learned opened on Thursday 8 February 2024 and have now closed. …
      Closed in this past week.
      https://www.covid19lessons.royalcommission.nz/have-your-say/
      .
      I do not trust them as far as I can throw them, so it remains to be seen, & can those issues that are raised;—- be swept under the carpet?
      Certainly the point is to make the noise, message them, and keep their noses on the covidial grindstone.
      Plus thanks to VFF, Reality Check Radio, Hatchard, NZDSOS, blogs, sharing, etc..

  23. Can we take the idea that this [Baltimore bridge collapse] was a terrorist attack off the table … and absolutely we cannot do that,” President Trump’s former national security adviser (and retired lieutenant general) Michael Flynn told Alex Jones in an online interview.

    Flynn called the container ship ramming the 1.6-mile-long bridge mile bridge at the Port of Baltimore a “black swan” event.
    Meanwhile, the White House and federal government agencies have been quick to declare this was not a terror attack.

    Maritime job Placement Company BalticShipping shows the captain of the container ship is a Ukranian.

    It has now been confirmed that the only people on the bridge when it collapsed was a pothole repair crew. A total of eight workers were reportedly on a meal break when the cargo ship crashed into the bridge. The eight workers plunged off the 185-foot bridge into the frigid water. Two of the eight workers were rescued, one who was hospitalized and one who refused treatment. The six other workers are presumed dead.

      How far is New Zealand behind in pushing something like this?

      Malcolm Roberts 🇦🇺 @MRobertsQLD
      The Digital ID Bill is going to be rammed through the Senate tomorrow after Labor has proposed cutting all debate.

      Email, and more importantly, call the Senators for your state. Tell them you will not accept them ramming Digital ID through without a proper debate.

      One Nation will be opposing this bill being rushed through the Parliament and will keep you updated.

  25. There were no vehicles traveling on the Francis Scott Key Bridge when it fell into the ocean thanks to heroic police officers who jumped into action.

    It has now been confirmed that the only people on the bridge when it collapsed was a pothole repair crew.

    A total of eight workers were reportedly on a meal break when the cargo ship crashed into the bridge.

    The eight workers plunged off the 185-foot bridge into the frigid water.

    Two of the eight workers were rescued, one who was hospitalized and one who refused treatment.

    “He brushed his clothes off and wanted to see his family. He was shaken up a little bit but nothing major. I guess the good lord was on his side,” a first responder said.

  27. Team Of Chinese Engineers Targeted By Suicide Bomber In Pakistan.

    Separatist Islamic insurgents in Pakistan appear to be engaging in all-out war with the government and its Chinese partners who are building Belt and Road Initiative projects in the south Asian country. Beijing has been investing billions into Pakistan, but some regions are very high-risk in terms of the security situation.

    After a string of attacks on locations hosting major Chinese infrastructure projects, there’s been a fresh suicide attack which killed five Chinese nationals Tuesday. A Pakistani driver was also killed when a suicide attacker crashed his explosive-laden vehicle into the group’s convoy, in northwest Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

    The Chinese nationals were engineers on their way from the capital of Islamabad to Dasu, which is the location of a new hydroelectric dam being constructed by a Chinese company.

  28. When wind turbines rotate, however, they generate not only electricity but also infrasound.

    For Dr. Ursula Bellut-Staeck, this development represents “a huge problem for all forms of organisms,” including humans. The medical doctor and scientific author has been studying the health effects of infrasound for several years. She has been looking into infrasound as a stressor on the cellular level since 2015 and published a paper in 2023 on how infrasound affects microcirculation and endothelial cells.

    Infrasound is defined as a sound wave with a frequency of less than 20 hertz (Hz). The lower the frequency of the sound, the greater its wavelength and the harder it is to shield from it. Infrasound can penetrate walls, people, and animals.
    Today’s wind turbines reach frequencies as low as 0.25 Hz. The wavelength of this frequency is just under 0.86 miles.

    Reported adverse effects of industrial wind turbines include weakness, dizziness, headaches, concentration and memory issues, ear pressure, cardiac arrhythmia, and sleep disorders, according to research cited in Canadian Family Physician.

    • “The thinking is based on feeding the soil biota rather than the plant. The scientist behind the product, who has spent many years researching the option, says feeding the soil adequately in a balanced manner means the plants will be healthy and will optimise yields.”

      Thats nothing new. I built a successful company on that principle 20 years ago. It was almost impossible to get any headway with the dumb “Scientist” in the back pocket of the solid fertiliser companies.
      But I persevered and sold out at the best time.
      For those interested why it works google “mycorrhiza” and read all about them.

      • Yep humans can do the same thing. 72 minerals in a capsule. chelated minerals.
        Using the old seaweed fertilizer does the same. tomatoes luv it and so do apples.

        Been there done that years ago in around 1975

        Nothing new under the sun and the older generations used to dig their crap into the soil.

        In Felding the then-new sewerage plant had drying beds where the product from the digester was run out to dry in the sun. Once dry it made good garden fert. full of all those good things.

        I think that this now goes to landfill these days. to mutch exctasy and met hfor the plants.

    • My takeaway is that they’re using the compost as a medium to transfer the minerals to the soil. Most cockies have a gut feeling if something might be missing from the soil but the normal soil test only checks for levels of nine trace minerals out of a range that includes; Magnesium, Chloride, Potassium, Sulfate, Sodium, Boron, Bromide, Calcium, Carbonate, Silicon, Nitrogen, Selenium, Phosphorus, Iodine, Chromium, Iron, Manganese, Titanium, Rubidium, Cobalt, Copper, Antimony, Molybdenum, Strontium, Zinc, Nickel, Tungsten, Scandium, Tin, Lanthanum, Yttrium, Silver, Gallium, Zirconium, Vanadium, Beryllium, Tellurium, Bismuth, Hafnium, Terbium, Europium, Gadolinium, Samarium, Cerium, Cesium, Gold, Dysprosium, Holmium, Lutetium, Erbium, Ytterbium, Neodymium, Praseodymium, Niobium, Tantalum, Thorium, Thallium, Rhenium. There’s probably room to fine tune mineral requirements a little.

      Unless of course you’re a dairy farmer where the Holy Grail is referred to as Olsen P levels where the percentage of phosphate is indicated. Little else seems to matter.

      Folk lore suggests that a parrot trained to screech “Olsen P, more phosphate, Polly have a cracker’ would be a sitter for a Fonterra Tit Puller of the Year award. 🙂

      • Compost helps the build up of the microcosm of bacteria and little critters in the soil. Plants need them fellas to make the minerals into a usable form.
        If you doubt that look where sprays the kill all those things are used a lot. The ground get to a point where the plant cannot get its food. A good example is boysenberries where eventually the pklant get ill thrifty and don’t yield. Kiwifruit IMHO suffer the same even though they are deep rooted. all that PSA crap was encouraged by spraying the crap out of the plants and the ground. I have a friend who was assessing the orchards and the ones without PSA all had long grass and were probably called unkempt. Growers tend to mow the crap out of the place rather than loading the ground with plenty of things like hay, pea straw chook shit or even wool shed crap. or even planting lupins down the rows.
        Longtime since I read all that up. Had a soil scientist that lived locally and he showed me.

        • The tidiest, best looking agricultural properties are not always the most productive. The downside is that grass & hay provide shelter & nursery conditions for insects not all of which are beneficial. Ditto for weeds.

          But dag manure certainly. Unbeatable as a mulch, high in nutrients & conserves moisture.

      • Much used to depend on how much you owed the farm supply companies. Once you got to a certain limit they’d tell you what your fertiliser budget was & what you would spend it on.

        It hasn’t changed much except that the banks now run your farm for you if your equity gets too diluted.

        • Southern US States organized a successful Farmers Alliance in 1875, a few years after the US civil war. 1000’s of farmers essentially created their own money. Jackson had destroyed the Mega Bank during his term, and people were sick of the bank crashes. Credit was issued by suppliers to farmers. The Farmers Alliance became the Popularist Party. Needless to say the Usury class attacked the Alliance and destroyed it. Interesting period of history, of what might have been. Sounds like the modern bank of Supply Company might go down too, under its own greed.

  31. I wanted to let you know about my new ‘no body, no parole’ members’ bill which I have lodged in Parliament.

    This bill would see convicted murderers ineligible for parole if they do not reveal the location of their victim’s body.

    The Concealment of Location of Victim Remains Bill provides that offenders who refuse to disclose the location of a victim’s body may be denied parole.

    My Members’ Bill acknowledges the additional anguish faced by families who do not have a chance to lay their loved ones to rest, because of an offender’s refusal to disclose the location of a victim’s remains.

    This bill would amend section 9 of the Sentencing Act 2002 to include the failure of an offender to disclose the location of the body in a list of aggravating factors a sentencing court must take into account.

    This would also insert a new section 28A into the Parole Act 2002 to require the Parole Board, when considering an offender for release on parole, to refuse parole unless the board is satisfied the prisoner has cooperated satisfactorily in the investigation of the offence to identify the victim’s location.

    This Bill has been modelled on legislation from the United Kingdom and New South Wales, passed in 2020 and 2022, respectively.

    The United Kingdom law was brought due to the murder of Helen McCourt, who disappeared in 1988 and whose body has never been recovered. The offender was sentenced to life imprisonment with a non-parole period of 16 years and was released in 2020 and died in 2022 having never revealed the whereabouts of Helen’s body.

    In New South Wales, similar legislation has been adopted, colloquially known as ‘Lyn’s Law’ after former Sydney teacher Chris Dawson was convicted in 2022 of murdering his 33-year-old wife Lynette who disappeared from their northern beaches home over 40 years ago. The body of the mother of two has never been found.

    Both of those laws have successfully acted as incentives for those who conceal the remains of victims to front up about their whereabouts and have prevented those who refuse to do so from being released on parole.

    Ultimately, this Bill puts the victims of crime at the heart of our justice system.

    It is the intention of this Bill to deny offender’s the opportunity to return to society, if they are not prepared to give their victims family and friends the opportunity to be reunited with their loved ones.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    • Tell Tom Rutherford to zip it sweetie

      Keep his lips zipped for 3 years and try shopping for some long pants
      This kid knows nothing

      There are sooo many fake convictions for murder in NZ
      The cops are super lazy.
      They pick on a target and build a BS case to stitch the person up.
      It is often illogical like the Teina Pora case.
      This happened with Scott Watson.

      Wee Tom Rutherford was born in the 1990s but does not know how bad it was then
      Teina Pora, Scott Watson.
      I’d add in Lundy
      Then these BS cases get in front of a dead loss NZ Dudge and the person gets sent away.
      The story that the pigs told for the Lundy situation was more suitable for a drag queen story hour – pure fantasy with mental health issues (cops ) included.

      The David Dougherty case was another example. Not murder but the pigs don’t even try.
      Helen Milner murdered her husband and the cops did not even try
      they dont usually go near women for murder.
      The Lauran Dickasen case still no sentencing 2.5 years later and we know she did it.

      I would estimate one third of convictions in NZ for murder are dubious
      Too many clowns think the cops are diligent and honest
      Ask Peter Ellis for an alt view.
      Ah thats right he is dead and died without clearing his name.

      Ask Daniel Pryde of Dunnydin about poo lice harassment and how the cops protected a crooked, nasty areswipe cop for years (Buis) , and lied about it

  33. How many IQ points will they lose?

    Brain fog and extreme fatigue are some of the symptoms teachers are experiencing as a result of Long Covid.

    A new study has found that teaching is the most vulnerable profession when it comes to who will experience long-term symptoms of Covid-19.

    Otago University associate professor Amanda Kvalsvig, one of the study’s authors, earlier told Morning Report that scientists in New Zealand and internationally were now convinced that the prevalence of Long Covid was likely to increase.

    “That’s a reason to take preventive action.

    “There’s been a lot of optimism that it will just go away, and we’re now seeing very firm evidence that that is not going to happen.”

  34. This is as explosive as it gets. Intel sources in Moscow discreetly confirm this is one of the FSB’s prime lines of investigation.

    December 4, 2023. Former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen Mark Milley, only 3 months after his retirement, tells CIA mouthpiece The Washington Post: “There should be no Russian who goes to sleep without wondering if they’re going to get their throat slit in the middle of the night (…) You gotta get back there and create a campaign behind the lines.”
    January 4, 2024: In an interview with ABC News, “spy chief” Kyrylo Budanov lays down the road map: strikes “deeper and deeper” into Russia.
    January 31: Victoria Nuland travels to Kiev and meets Budanov. Then, in a dodgy press conference at night in the middle of an empty street, she promises “nasty surprises” to Putin: code for asymmetric war.
    February 22: Nuland shows up at a Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) event and doubles down on the “nasty surprises” and asymmetric war. That may be interpreted as the definitive signal for Budanov to start deploying dirty ops.
    February 25: The New York Times publishes a story about CIA cells in Ukraine: nothing that Russian intel does not already know.
    Then, a lull until March 5 – when crucial shadow play may have been in effect. Privileged scenario: Nuland was a key dirty ops plotter alongside the CIA and the Ukrainian GUR (Budanov). Rival Deep State factions got hold of it and maneuvered to “terminate” her one way or another – because Russian intel would have inevitably connected the dots.
    Yet Nuland, in fact, is not “retired” yet; she’s still presented as Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs and showed up recently in Rome for a G7-related meeting, although her new job, in theory, seems to be at Columbia University (a Hillary Clinton maneuver).
    Meanwhile, the assets for a major “nasty surprise” are already in place, in the dark, and totally off radar. The op cannot be called off.
    March 5: Little Blinken formally announces Nuland’s “retirement”.
    March 7: At least one Tajik among the four-member terror commando visits the Crocus venue and has his photo taken.
    March 7-8 at night: U.S. and British embassies simultaneously announce a possible terror attack on Moscow, telling their nationals to avoid “concerts” and gatherings within the next two days.
    March 9: Massively popular Russian patriotic singer Shaman performs at Crocus. That may have been the carefully chosen occasion targeted for the “nasty surprise” – as it falls only a few days before the presidential elections, from March 15 to 17. But security at Crocus was massive, so the op is postponed.
    March 22: The Crocus City Hall terror attack.

    The Russian population has handed to the Kremlin total carte blanche to exercise brutal, maximum punishment – whatever and wherever it takes.
