    • …. The severity of the virus was concerning, as was the factit mutates, …..

      ….. The Department of Conservation were trialling a vaccine to combat the virus, but stated it wouldn’t be possible to give it to all endangered birds. …..

      The ones that do survive the natural virus will build a new “herd immunity”
      The surest way to cause further mutations, that figure how to hide from the vaccine.
      With a very high risk that the virus becomes “hot” even more deadly.
      Then the birds in the wild in particular, will find that Bird flue is even more deadly.

    • Just like the bees when they killed off the bee Hives with some virus. It is all bull shit, just like the corona virus shit they passed about, don’t touch other dogs about when out walking and stuff like that for goodness sake. It was the normal flue like symptoms that people have got for hundreds of years, all depends on your immunity and health and well being, 1000s of people die every year of flues. . Chickens will stop the meat and the egg production but we will see won’t we????

      • Line breeding as is practised with chook breeds & bees is a complicated subject of which I’ve only scratched the surface. There are however constants. One is that you can only ever breed for two points at a time.

        Concentrating on maximum egg lay along with efficiency in food/production leaves little room for health considerations. If nature was left to do its best health & therefore survival would naturally lead everything.

        Enter the vaccine maker.

      • “enter the vaccine maker”
        Problems known about much earlier by others raising questions , but ignored, & now this 2015 report.
        Posted this link the other day, and hysteria of bird flue increases.

        …… thanks to an inadvertent effect from a vaccine.
        Chickens vaccinated against Marek’s disease rarely get sick.
        But the vaccine does not prevent them from spreading Marek’s to unvaccinated birds.
        .
        “With the hottest strains, every unvaccinated bird dies within 10 days.
        There is no human virus that is that hot.

        https://www.pbs.org/newshour/science/tthis-chicken-vaccine-makes-virus-dangerous

        Fortunately that disease has stayed with in the hen & chicken industry, & seems to stay pretty much on their grounds.

        Also to note, that vaxx for Marek’s disease is done in New Zealand on the big commercial scale hen & chicken farms.

        Now kindly New Zealand’s DOC want to play in “well being”, and looks at increasing the risk by creating a large extinction event of birds, in New Zealand.
        Would DOC ever tell us that may be another “leaky vaccine”?

        • ……”“With the hottest strains, every unvaccinated bird dies within 10 days.
          There is no human virus that is that hot. “……

          Let’s consider how many human generations have lived since the salk vaccine against polio was introduced in 1955. Three maybe four?

          Marek’s disease vaccine was introduced in 1970. A generation for a chook would probably be two years so upwards of 25 generations have had no need to develop any resistance to the virus.

          I suspect that there lies the answer.

        • nasska:—
          The original Salk polio vaccination is not a “leaky vaccine”.
          Tshere is a fair to read in that article.

          … It’s important to note childhood vaccines for polio, measles, mumps, rubella and smallpox aren’t leaky;
          they are considered “perfect” vaccines.
          As such, they are in no way in danger of falling prey to this phenomenon. …..

          Although the Bill Gates version of the polio vaxx may be is where we can start the count of generations,
          I do not think it is the generation of the person or animal, but it is how fast the virus may breed, in any case.

          These days I believe the commercial poultry farms are always using an updated Marek’s vaxx.

          Then weigh-up how many generations of the the covid virus, in a large population?
          What number of mutations are we up to in the covid system?
          Is it just luck that the virus has become more benign? while vaxxing into the face of an ever changing virus?

          I also have concerns now about the whooping cough, pertussis vaccines,
          Now double down on that in how they went to a double vax for tetanus to a triple vaxx, just to be all inclusive for tetanus, pertussis & diphtheria.
          No choice in New Zealand, as they say;- “think of the safety & health for your grand children”.

          I now wonder about all the tetanus jabs in sheep & cattle, but then again, none of them are allowed to reach an old age. 🙂

          • Just to clarify on the animal front, that is, are the companies changing the formulations of those animal vaccines?
            Do they need to? , as most farmers will not realize that.

            Just like how the definition of vaccine was changed, that suited “Big Pharma”.

            To weigh up, that a few generations of intestinal worms seemed to become drench resistant to the different families of drenches.

            • You have no idea of the contents of a cocky’s mailbox. Take out the pamphlets advertising specials on fence posts along with “new” more effective drenches/vaccines & the bloody box would fly away in the norwesterlies!

              You become immune to the crap before the stock becomes resistant to the products. 🙂

              But many of us saw the writing on the wall for drench resistance. We culled worm & disease prone animals from breeding flocks & changed stocking practises until the need for remedies was reduced doubtlessly costing pharmaceutical companies a bomb. Who can remember footrot?

              Long term the same thing is going to have to be done with viruses else we’ll be hostage to vaccine developers.

    • It seems the system is spending money to go down this track.
      It would seem that now mRNA vaxxes are now considered a valid technology as there were no problems to be seen, So to be put into into good use for everyone’s benefit, as soon as they can be called up.
      Even Remember that “Nobody is Safe until All are Vaccinated”, so it will go.

      2nd July …. The U.S. government has awarded $176 million to Moderna (MRNA.O), opens new tab to advance development of its bird flu vaccine, …. ….. pre-pandemic mRNA-based vaccine against H5N1 avian influenza. ….
      .
      ….. the risk that the virus will mutate and gain the ability to spread easily among people, touching off a pandemic. …. remains low …. also negotiating with Pfizer (PFE.N), opens new tab for an mRNA vaccine against H5N1. …..
      .
      ….. Those shots could potentially be used to inoculate farm workers and others at risk of exposure …..

      https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/us-awards-moderna-176-million-produce-bird-flu-vaccine-2024-07-02/

      I sort of wonder that for the chooks & the dairy cows why wouldn’t a good old fashion lock down for 2 weeks to flatten the curve be put in place. 🙂

      It must be due now for repeat, as those mRNA vaxxes are still in use, and so are proven, unopposed, so ready to go again, this time to fly like a bird.

  1. Housing Minister Chris Bishop is set to double down on his war on house prices with a swathe of liberalising zoning and land reforms, to free up land markets and developers to deliver high and low density housing and commercial developments.

    In a copy of a speech Bishop will give to the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand seen by The Post, Bishop will set house zoning targets for councils; scrap urban-rural limits; encourage mixed use zoning; and get rid of minimum floor sizes and balcony requirements for apartments, while Government will much more tightly define high density transport corridors eligible for development.
    https://www.thepost.co.nz/politics/350331318/chris-bishop-set-out-radical-land-use-and-planning-reforms

    The speech contains six key measures. The 24 so-called tier 1 and tier 2 councils around the country — mostly the bigger ones — will have to meet new “housing growth targets”. These targets will require affected councils to zone 30 years worth of land for “live-zoning”. Currently councils need to “plan for 30 years”, but only live zone for three years.

Within there was an article about Patrick Gower and how he’s worried about his future. It was an extraordinarily sad article, seeing poor Paddy so down made me cry spontaneously because I’m so kind. Maybe we could get together and start a give a little page for poor Paddy? Golly that’s a good idea and I just know you guys will give till it hurts! I might even get an award for being so nice. That’s so cool I might start crying again.

  3. -Minister announces new Kāinga Ora board, lays out ‘expectations’
    RNZ

    The Government has announced a refreshed board for its housing agency, and laid down new expectations including material reduction in operating losses.

    It follows the resignation of chief executive Andrew McKenzie on Tuesday, with a redundancy payout of about $365,000.

    One of the new board members – Ceinwen McNeil – is also a member of the three-person team who reviewed the organisation, alongside former National Party prime minister Sir Bill English, and Simon Allen.

    The previous chair of Kāinga Ora Homes & Communities was replaced by Simon Moutter in May, after the review was delivered to the Government.

    In a statement, Housing Minister Chris Bishop confirmed McNeil – along with Arihia Bennett, Jenn Bestwick, Alan Dent, Peter Jeffries and Fiona Mules – would replace Robin Hapi, Professor Philippa Howden-Chapman, Nicole Anderson, Sir John Hanson and Campbell Roberts.

    what he hasn’t said is how he is going to make the tenants pay more of their rent rather than the taxpayer i.e. is he capping rental subsidies at their current level or lowering them or will they continue to increase.
    Hasn’t said what he will do about those that don’t pat, do damage etc etc.
    Not solved those issues.. Those ones generally need a concrete cell.

  5. Putin and Xi to meet at SCO summit to bolster security and counter Western influence.

    Putin and the Chinese president have expanded the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), a club founded in 2001 with Russia, China and Central Asian nations, to include India, Iran and Pakistan as a counterweight to the West.
    “The organisation has firmly established itself as one of the key pillars of a fair, multipolar world order,” Putin said, adding that bilateral ties between Moscow and Beijing were at their best in history.

    “Our cooperation is not aimed against anyone, we are not creating any blocs or alliances, we are just acting in the interests of our peoples,” Putin said. In his opening remarks, Xi told Putin that China and Russia should “uphold the original aspiration of friendship for generations” in response to an “ever-changing international situation”.

The funny part was the South Island and particularly Southland was doing really well and the same thing appears to be happening again. I suppose the good news is Willis can’t be worse than that fat idiot Robbo and if we get through this things should come right in a big way. Unfortunately Rome wasn’t built in a day and sabotaging the economy was one of the few things Labour did properly.

Crewing to the Islands shouldn’t be too much of a problem at this time of the year.

    The new Prime Minister, Mr Manele, elected after power-sharing talks that followed the April election, will be courted by Xi Jinping’s administration on a week-long trip.

    Across Honiara, there are signs of Chinese support – none larger than the national stadium, which played host to the Pacific Games earlier in 2024. The cost to China was reportedly $500 million and will cost the cash-strapped government $14 million to maintain for the year.

    “Australia, Solomon Islands and New Zealand, we are part of the forum family, the Pacific Islands Forum family,” he said.

    “Geography has put us in this situation, whether we like it or not.”

    Mr Manele’s bluntness is a reminder of his willingness to play both sides of the geopolitical game to develop his country.

      What is the State to do in an aging population where the ratio of the working-aged to the retired changes from around 4:1 to 2:1 and then to 1:1?
      Is the State to increase taxes (making it even harder on youngsters to afford to start families and hence exacerbating the problem)?

      Is the solution MAID?
      Tax breaks for families looking after their elders?

      • The super high tax periods in history have been to pay off stupid world wars. The people pay before, during war (with their lives), and later with actual tax payments. Tax is about war, not retirement, or social services. Too many people are on the take, and governments don’t really put anything aside, they spend every cracker like fools. A large chunk of the rolled over government debt is WAR debt paid to dodgy banks.

        Big problem for all countries. Tax breaks in the form of small strong communities who look after their own? I fear many big lefty cities will eat their elderly like a version of THE ROAD. Lift retirement age to 80. Who knows, its gunna hurt.

  13. That was pretty bad of this woman to attack this Chinese student on a bus with an steel bar the other day.

    What sort of person gets on a bus with a steel bar? Sounds like a premeditated crime.
    The bus driver was criticized for letting the attacker exit the bus, but the driver was probably fearful that they would be next. I mean, would you want to trap a bar-wielding nut on your bus?

    The media reports give no description of the attacker, but she must have been pretty large and physical to attack a 6 foot 2 inch 16-year-old male (who for all she knew might have had martial arts training). What sort of woman would that be?

    I suspect that she has a criminal record and is known to the police. This is probably not the first time she has attacked someone in public. She came prepared, after all.

  14. Inside The Chinese Money-Laundering Network Fueling America’s Fentanyl Crisis.

    Previous cases of money laundering in the US involving Chinese nationals have raised serious questions about how much Beijing knows about these dark laundering networks. For instance, a recent Wall Street Journal report revealed that Chinese crime groups and drug traffickers used the Toronto-Dominion Bank to launder money from US fentanyl sales.

    In mid-April, the House Select Committee on China revealed that the Chinese Communist Party used tax rebates to subsidize the manufacturing and exporting of fentanyl chemicals to overseas customers.

    The “biggest mystery” here is why the Biden administration hasn’t taken a tougher stance on China while America’s fentanyl epidemic kills as many citizens each year as two Vietnam Wars.

The Great Mythical Deity above knows why as my casual observations lead me to believe that she spends a maximum of ten minutes a week in there & most of that involves setting electronic options.

    Needless to say my faultless logic fell on deaf ears so the past ten days have been spent waiting for tradesmen or driving down to the local coin operated laundry. I now consider that I’ve heard most excuses for turning up late or on a different day to that arranged. Eg:

    # My order for parts didn’t arrive. They’re in Wellington, should be here by Friday

    # It’s been a crazy week. I’ll call you Thursday and let you know when we will be there.

    # I got called for Jury duty.

    # I’m a man short.

    # I thought I told you.

    Next week I expect:

    # I couldn’t find my shoes this morning.

    # I had to go get a haircut.

    # I’m sick.

    # My wife just got pregnant.

    # A kidney stone ricocheted off my spleen.

    NatWest is locked in a row with farmers for urging customers to buy less red meat.

    A “carbon footprint tracker” on the bank’s mobile app uses transaction data to advise customers on how to reduce their carbon footprint by changing their spending habits.

  17. World Bank Finally Reclassifies Russia to Top Category: ‘High Income Country’.

    Economic activity in Russia was influenced by a large increase in military related activity in 2023, while growth was also boosted by a rebound in trade (+6.8%), the financial sector (+8.7%), and construction (+6.6%). These factors led to increases in both real (3.6%) and nominal (10.9%) GDP, and Russia’s Atlas GNI per capita grew by 11.2%.

    (After everything that the terrorist cabal has thrown at Russia to try to destabilize and steal her resources, Russia, under the leadership of popular Putin, has absorbed the blows and goes from strength to strength. That’s gotta hurt.)
