Have Your Say





  1. Quick everybody lets line up for the death jab coz the toothy one says so, yeah right bugger off ya mole.
    Im trying to work out what’s more dangerous Cindys teeth or a chainsaw, she definitly follows in her “Auntie Helen’s” image like that, two NZ prime mincers that could eat an apple through a picket fence.



    • Looked like a whiteish scraggly methed out disgruntled ex employee, hard to tell with pixelated image but the scraggly look does fit with the peacefull religion so guess tine will tell but its not a methed out cuzi bro cuz they shop at pak n save.



  2. So turns out if youre a bludger, oppressed and just a general whitey hater and you havent liked the negative outcomes of previous legal action just try try try again untill after 30 years you wear down a judge untill they say “fuck it here ya go now piss off and stop annoying us” … problem is it sets a precedent and other greedy clack bunts (cheers for that wording hunty) will jump on the bandwagon.

    Viking posted on this last night and i think the comment i made needs expanded on, is there any ballsy lawyers that YSBers know that would take on the woke mob and the oppressed folk and challenge them to gather their customary rights in a pre european way?
    I think its fucking appalling they can exercise customary rights exclusive to them whilst using technology and methods developed by everyone else in the world they wish to exclude.

    I think all excluded new zealanders have a right and duty to protect maori customary ways,  we should band together to ensure they use dug out canoes, carved bone fish hooks, woven flax whitebait nets, no wetsuit masks snorkels etc grass skirts and travel on foot (not on whiteys road or footpaths) to these places. 

    Theres many others to add to the list but seriously we need to take action and play these greedy cunts at their own game.  Lets find a lawyer and then crowdfund, theres plenty of highly fucked off kiwis from all backrounds that i rekon will happily contribute.

    Enoughs enough lets fucking stop this shit.



  3. This os of concern. Who is big Brother?

    Police open investigation into Newsroom

    Newsroom is slapped with a full $13,000 order for costs, and is now subject to a police inquiry, over a video story that changed a worrying Oranga Tamariki practice


    so you don’t like what is said. you agree the changes and then you call the p[Police.
    Time the Wellington Headqaurters were moved to inver cargill. Get rid of the stupid.



    • Could this be the beginning of the end of the media’s love affair with Jacinda? One can but hope.

      On the other hand, Newsroom is fully committed to the “climate emergency” BS so it’s hard to feel too sorry for them.



    • There are three institutions actively engaged in degrading our way of life:-
      1. Poo lice, aka Stasi
      2. Media filth
      3. Tertiary/Education liars and MSU (Make Shit Up) Practitioners.

      If two of them turn on each other and feathers fly, this is a good thing.

      There is no ‘independent media’ watching out for us.
      They are the enemy within.
      They are white-ant scum.
      Any damage to them, from any quarter, is a good thing.



  4. He Puapua report: Judith Collins calls on Government to lay out its implementation plan for report

    Collins has been accused of playing the race card, using terms such as segregation and racist separatism to describe the new proposed Māori Health Authority – one of the Māori kaupapa put forward in He Puapua.

    “We’ve only had an election a matter of months ago and the Government did not ever mention He Puapua or any of the recommendations in it. They did not ask the New Zealand population to sign up to it and they didn’t actually have the conversations,” Collins said.

    The draft document recommends transferring the DOC estate to Māori.

    “And it’s being applied by stealth,” she told Magic Talk earlier on Monday.



    • No wonder shitty labour ran a 1 issue election campaign, if they had of spoke a word on any of this then the outcome would have been very very very different.

      Jacinda arderns labour party, the most deceitful govt in new zealands history.



      • I would go further than that, Stupid.

        Jacinda Ardern’s government of Lesbian rubber dick operators, Homosexual butt fuckers and Serial Rapists is AS DECEITFUL as ANY government ANYWHERE in WORLD HISTORY.

        She has turned New Zealand into a Cuntry called Assotearoa Nu Xiland.

        Ardern is, in the words of Mrs Rissole, an ASSHOLE.

        *** ding ding ding BREAKING NEWS ding ding ding ***

        News media reports coming in are that Caligula and Nero have apparently applied for refugee status here in Assotearoa Nu Xiland – apparently more perverted than the Whore of the City of Rome.



    • You have to wonder about the intelligence of allowing a vital resource to be connected to the internet so it can be compromised.

      I am not a genius but my main work computer is not connected to the internet. I use a “sacrificial” computer to read/write emails and look at websites.



  5. From a 2005 report:
    Background: Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is caused by a newly discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV). No effective prophylactic or post-exposure therapy is currently available.

    Results: We report, however, that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage. In addition to the well-known functions of chloroquine such as elevations of endosomal pH, the drug appears to interfere with terminal glycosylation of the cellular receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2. This may negatively influence the virus-receptor binding and abrogate the infection, with further ramifications by the elevation of vesicular pH, resulting in the inhibition of infection and spread of SARS CoV at clinically admissible concentrations.

    Conclusion: Chloroquine is effective in preventing the spread of SARS CoV in cell culture. Favorable inhibition of virus spread was observed when the cells were either treated with chloroquine prior to or after SARS CoV infection. In addition, the indirect immunofluorescence assay described herein represents a simple and rapid method for screening SARS-CoV antiviral compounds.

    And the French Government knew about the benefits of HCQ well before the pandemic got going. The health officials had a meeting on the 12th December 2019 and gazetted the ban on Hydroxychloroquine being dispensed on the 13th January 2020. Not even people needing anti-malarial or treatment for RA could get it.

    Now why would they do that do you suppose?



    • Not even people needing anti-malarial or treatment for RA could get it.
      Another reason why?

      It is the first vaccine that meets the World Health Organization’s goal of a malaria vaccine with at least 75% efficacy.
      Still in trial.

      If more problems, deaths, sickness, then easier to push a vaccine.
      Vaccines are good idea, but the ethics, the big money behind and the big pharma, now with questionable ethics, and controlled media, all pushing to go this way,



  6. Announcement made, now can the clown car implement their policy? I thought the Crown already had laws in place to seize assets from people associated with organised crime.

    The Government is bringing in Firearm Protection Orders – meaning specific, “high risk” people cannot own, use or access a firearm, in a move targeting gangs and organised crime.

    Williams said the orders would “strengthen action already taken to combat the influence of gangs and organised crime”.

    The Government will also bring in a new law to enable the seizure of assets from people associated with organised crime.



  7. Anyone else aware of the rumours regarding J0hn F. Kemedy jr? That he is aIive and wiII be instaIIed as interim P0TUS? Or is the Ieft working an internet sting operation.

    • Can I just ask why Newshub thought it necessary to clarify that the boiling water was hot?
      Newshub journalists might struggle with he meanings of words, but many non-journalists do not.
      I have known from quite a young age that boiling water is hot.

      That said, I hope the police officer makes a full recovery.



  8. Daily Fail doing its best to keep the fear ramped up.

    A growing number of current and recovered Covid-19 patients in India are contracting a deadly and rare fungal infection, doctors revealed on Monday.
    Mucormycosis, dubbed ‘black fungus’ by medics, is usually most aggressive in patients whose immune systems are weakened by other infections.



  9. Sorry if posted before, am busy.
    100 refugees to be imported, every 6 weeks.
    1,000 per year.
    Ain’t they allowed to import up to 6 more refugees each.fro memory.
    Better start building more motels, or do refugees get the houses and motels are for bennies?
    Back to work, see you all later!

    • So what was in the definition before?
      Then after?

      A word? a look? attitude? swear word?
      Vandalism? Damage? Threatening violence?
      Any triggering aspect? or drunk? or drugs?

      Can it be profiled? woman? children? men? age? with children or not? groups of people? + all these things we are not suppose to think about, so every one is guilty.

      A person with cash? cheque? eft-pos card? credit card?

      About any particular purchase? tobacco? bread? meat? alcohol?

      Eating food? like grapes, biscuits, ?
      Shop-lifting and being questioned?

      Is the price of lock-down? not enough of “living wage” or benefit?

      Or is it all just talk? virtue signalling?



  11. Mortgage financial hardship cases up by nearly 12,000


    The number of mortgage borrowers experiencing financial hardship increased by 10 percent in April – and that number could rise, a new report shows.

    The April Centrix Credit Indicator Outlook released on Tuesday, shows 11,900 mortgage accounts were flagged as under financial hardship, up 1100 (10 percent) month-on-month. This followed the end of the mortgage holiday scheme on March 31.

    “I don’t think we’ll see a huge number of mortgagee sales…I think there will be more people taking initiative and downsizing their property rather than the banks forcing their hand,” McLaughlin added.



  12. From Simon Black at Sovereign Man.
    “Early in the 2nd century AD, around the year 101, the Roman humorist Decimus Junius Juvenalis began publishing a collection of satirical poems poking fun at the Empire.
    Rome was already in serious decline by the time Juvenalis wrote his first poem. In the first century AD alone, Romans suffered the tyrannical insanity of Caligula, the destructive extravagance of Nero, multiple civil wars, and the ‘Year of the Four Emperors’ in 96 AD.
    Needless to say, Juvenalis had plenty of inspiration for his satires.
    He was like the George Carlin of his day– making fun of everyone, even the most sacrosanct institutions. And he didn’t pull any punches.
    Juvenalis made fun of the Senate for their endless hypocrisy. He made fun of wealthy noblemen for acquiring their wealth by sucking up to the Emperor.
    He made fun of the merchant class and its constant obsession with status. He made fun of the military for acting as if they were above the law.
    He made fun of how the Imperial government pretends to give a damn about the common folk. And he made fun of the common folk, saying “the mob cares for nothing but bread and circuses. . .”
    Most of all, Juvenalis made fun of the extreme decay in Roman morality.
    By the 2nd century AD, the Roman virtues of ‘strength and honor’ had been replaced by deceit, idleness, apathy, and corruption.
    Edward Gibbon echoed this sentiment in his work The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, published in 1776.
    Gibbon’s primary thesis is that Rome became a victim of its own success– its extraordinary wealth and prosperity made people lazy, complacent, and entitled.
    Social cohesion broke down. Violent crime rose. There was no unity, no sense of community. People fought with one another over trivial issues, rather than focus their attention on approaching enemies.
    It’s difficult to not see the historical parallels when reading the daily news in our own times.
    Recent FBI statistical releases, for example, show the number of murders in large cities across the United States has soared by 32.2% over the last 12 months. Vehicle theft is up 11.9%. Arson is up 56.9%… no doubt due to the mostly peaceful protests that we witnessed last year.
    Not to mention there’s been a disturbing trend in violence at airports across the United States– places that are supposed to be full of security.
    Last week the Associated Press reported that the number of ‘unruly passenger incidents’ has reached more than 1,300 so far THIS YEAR, as opposed to an average of roughly 100 to 130 per year over the past ten years, according to data from the Federal Aviation Administration.
    The Internet is abound with videos of full-on brawls at airports like Detroit and Miami International, with airline passengers beating each other to a pulp because of seating issues, baggage fees, masks, or just about anything else.
    Frankly it’s an embarrassment to watch… and symbolic of modern moral decay.
    Social media is even worse. Platforms which were originally intended to provide a sense of community have instead become cesspools of garish narcissism and childish arguments waged by petty insults.
    Similar to ancient Rome, there is no cohesion, no community, no civility. People are now so tightly wound that nearly every possible issue leads to outrage and violence.
    Sometimes it feels like western civilization has become a never-ending Jerry Springer episode, replete with fist fights, race riots, screaming matches, puerile insults… and an eager, bloodlusty crowd chanting for more.
    Ancient Romans had their Coliseum. We have Twitter.
    All of this, of course, barely scratches the surface.
    I wrote to you last week about how an entire generation of young people is being brainwashed.
    Students as young as five are taught to obsess over the melanin content in people’s skin. They’re taught to identify as either victims or oppressors, and to find excuses everywhere to be outraged.
    They’re taught that intellectual dissent results in censorship or social banishment.
    They’re taught to subordinate themselves to authority and never ask any questions, no matter how absurd or ridiculous the decrees.
    They’re taught that human beings, including themselves, are filthy disease carriers.
    They’re taught to respond to challenges by cowering in fear.
    Meanwhile, 15+ months into COVID-19, we still have dictatorial governors playing God with people’s lives, telling them what they can/cannot do, what to wear, and how to live.
    And in its effort to give people more bread and circuses, the government is ready to spend $11+ trillion on every socialist program imaginable, at a time when the US national debt is already closing in on $30 trillion.
    The central bank is facilitating the excess by conjuring trillions of dollars out of thin air to loan to the federal government, and thereby creating the biggest inflation spike seen in years.
    This is all happening at a time when the enemies are at the gates.
    It was only on Friday that the Colonial Pipeline in the United States– which carries more than 2.5 million barrels of oil per day– had to be taken offline after being hacked.
    And a few months ago, of course, even the US federal government suffered a massive data breach after discovering that hackers had been inside of their systems for more than eight months.
    Yet the CIA’s big priority these days is showcasing its diversity and inclusion credentials.
    It’s disgraceful… all of it. And the Chinese Communist Party must be rolling on the floor laughing as they watch the West cower in fear and utterly destroy itself from within.
    Sadly this trajectory is unlikely to change, certainly not anytime soon.”

  13. Just received an email from business.govt .nz with answers to questions received after a previous email for employers about vaccinations.

    This question takes the prize for silliest question of the day.

    ” Are we allowed to exclude unvaccinated customers or visitors from our workplace to minimise the risk of infecting our vaccinated staff?”

    The answer was no by the way. (at least until the princess changes the law)



    • If your staff is vaccinated, they should be unable to get the chyna rona and if they do it will not be as bad. If you exclude the unvaccinated, you may have to let go some employees and go broke!
      So they tell us! St cindy says be kind! Cause she doesn’t give a fuck!



  14. “Happy “Tax Freedom Day”
    If New Zealanders had to pay off the year’s tax bill before keeping any money for ourselves, we would have spent the first 130 days of 2021 working for the Government. That makes today the day you stop working for the Government and start working for yourself.

    What a relief. Unfortunately, Tax Freedom Day is set to fall later in future years, because our tax bill is growing. Income tax brackets aren’t adjusted for inflation, so we’re steadily being pushed into paying higher tax rates, even when we’re not getting any richer.

    New Zealanders are spending more than a third of the year working just to pay Grant Robertson.

    Then there’s the Government’s record borrowing. The debt will have to be repaid with interest in future years. Soon we’ll be slaving away for the Government through the winter.

    Tax Freedom Day is a day for New Zealanders to reflect on whether every dollar taken by politicians is spent on what is really necessary. Should, for example, government agencies be spending our money on funerals for turtles? Or would they have been better off not taking that money in the first place?

    Here at the Taxpayers’ Union our mission is to fight for lower taxes, less waste, and more transparency. One way we do that is by exposing examples of stupid government spending that would have been better off returned to taxpayers. One only needs to pick up a newspaper to see that our efforts need to re-doubled.

    So Hunty, if you agree Tax Freedom Day should fall earlier in the year – chip in to our campaign fund so we can fight for you, the taxpayer.

    In politics the squeaky wheel gets the oil. There are hundreds of special interest groups demanding more and more of your taxpayer money for their pet causes. Help balance the debate by chipping in to the only organisation that is willing to call out Wellington (and town halls!) for how they spend your money.”



  15. Apart from being net tax payers is there a stat they dont over represent themselves in?

  18. Donald J Trump@realdonaldtrump

    The major Michigan Election Fraud case has just filed a bombshell pleading claiming votes were intentionally switched from President Trump to Joe Biden. The number of votes is MASSIVE and determinative. This will prove true in numerous other States. All Republicans must UNIFY and not let this happen. If a thief robs a jewelry store of all of its diamonds (the 2020 Presidential Election), the diamonds must be returned. The Fake News media refuses to cover the greatest Election Fraud in the history of our Country. They have lost all credibility, but ultimately, they will have no choice!




    First it was the French. Senior members of France’s armed forces wrote to the the current Macron administration saying they are disturbed by what they see as a betrayal of France. The say French culture and society is being pushed aside by attempts to establish an Islamic caliphate in the country.

    Now in the US, senior past officials of the Defence Forces, Generals and Admirals, have written a similar letter voicing their concern with the Biden administration, which they perceive as more aligned with global communism than the interests of the United States.

    10TH MAY 2021
    The NZPIF has been discussing the recent housing policies with tenant and other affected groups. We have also researched how rental providers will be affected and what the likely affect will be. This was done as there was an absence of any Government information, as confirmed by the Government officials’ policy impact statement.
    Our research showed that 69% of respondents would not be affected by the Bright Line change from five to ten years. This IS, of course, assuming that no adverse life event forced them to sell some or all of their rental properties.
    The main concern was removing the ability to claim mortgage interest payments as a legitimate tax deduction. Our research showed that 90% of respondents would be affected by this tax increase at an average cost of $4,542 per rental property.
    Most respondents, 70.3%, hoped to be able to increase rental prices so they could continue owning their rentals. The median rental price increase was $21 to $30pw.
    We sent the results of our research to various Government Ministers and requested meetings to discuss the matter. We also held meetings with the First Home Owners Club, Tenants Protection Canterbury and Renters United in Wellington.
    The First Home Owners Club and Tenants Protection Canterbury agreed with our belief that removing mortgage interest tax deductibility was not in best interest of their members. We asked them to support us in requesting Government reconsider this policy, which they did.
    A letter was drafted stating we understood the Government’s desire to help first home buyers, but also outlining our concerns about removing interest deductibility. We asked them to reconsider this change.
    The NZPIF believed that this was a very powerful letter. It was powerful because it included the perspective of tenants, that they were collateral damage in the change, and also that of first home buyers, the intended beneficiaries of the policy. The First Home Owners Club did not believe it would help their members but in fact would make it harder for them to save deposits required to purchase their first homes.
    The NZPIF had a meeting at Parliament yesterday, Monday 10 May 2021, to present in person our research findings as well as our letter from the three organisations. This meeting was held in the Minister of Finance’s office with five Ministers attending. They were Minister of Finance, Grant Robertson, Minister of Housing, Megan Woods, Minister of Revenue, David Parker, Associate Minister of Housing, Poto Williams and Parliamentary Under Secretary for Revenue, Dr Deborah Russell and twelve Government policy advisors.
    While we were respectfully received and listened to, we were disappointed to find that our letter and request were dismissed out of hand. This wasn’t totally unexpected, so we had prepared a plan B, which was to propose the modification of how the removal of interest deductions could be introduced.
    While the IRD is going to undertake public consultation on the new tax change, this consultation is limited to specific details of the tax change, not the main structure of the tax change.
    We asked that if Government was not prepared reconsider removing interest deductibility completely, would they consider modifying how the tax change would be introduced.
    In 2017, the UK Government also removed interest as a tax deductible expense from rental property. However, the way they introduced the tax change was far less severe and impactful than is planned in New Zealand.
    We presented the Ministers with a fact sheet on the UK introduction, which limited mortgage interest claims to the base tax rate of 20%, rather than higher tax rates. The UK also allowed rental property held in companies to deduct mortgage interest as before.
    This more measured reduction in claiming mortgage interest as a tax deduction meant an estimated 18% of rental property owners with debt would be affected in the UK, compared with 100% in New Zealand. Because of the way the UK Government introduced their policy, rental prices have not been affected to a large degree.
    We were extremely disappointed that, after confirming with an official that the way the UK introduced their policy had been considered, the Minister of Finance said it was unlikely they would look at changing the structure of how they wanted it introduced in New Zealand.
    It now appears that no consideration is being given to advice from tenants, first home buyers, officials from the IRD, Treasury and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development and from economists and tax experts do not agree with this tax change. The introduction of the tax change and its ramifications are totally the responsibility of the Government.
    In addition to this, Government has also asked officials for advice on rent controls, indicating that they realise rental increases are highly likely from this new tax law.
    Should rent controls be introduced, the NZPIF believes that this will confirm that removing mortgage interest as a tax deduction was a poor decision.



  22. Chris Hipkins softens his stance on the public sector wage freeze, committing to reviewing the guidance next year, rather than in two years, as previously decided

    The Government is softening its commitment to freezing the wages of most public sector workers who earn more than $60,000 a year.

    Following a meeting with unions on Tuesday, Minister for the Public Service Chris Hipkins agreed to review the new Public Service Pay Guidance in late-2022, rather than in mid-2023, as previously decided.

    While the unions were pleased, Hipkins downplayed the change, saying: “We’re in unusual and unpredictable times, and we’ve agreed to bring the review forward by a few months.

  23. GOP Governors Slash Unemployment Benefits as Businesses Plead for Workers
    By Isabel van Brugen
    May 9, 2021 Updated: May 10, 2021

    Expanded federal unemployment benefits that were implemented during last year’s pandemic relief efforts are ending earlier than scheduled in Arkansas, Montana, and South Carolina—and Florida is expected to follow suit as Republican governors nationwide respond to pleas from businesses to encourage Americans to return to work.

    “We absolutely can put more people to work,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) told reporters during a press conference Wednesday, announcing that Floridians receiving the $300 weekly extra payments will soon have to provide proof that they’re actively looking for a job.

    The Republican governor signaled that he would soon follow a similar push from other GOP states in encouraging Americans to return to work.

    Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) has said that by the end of June his state would no longer participate in the extended weekly unemployment benefits under the Biden administration’s new $1.9 trillion stimulus plan—three months earlier than its expiration.

    Earlier, the Republican governors of Montana and South Carolina announced similar plans, claiming that these benefits have discouraged people from returning to the workforce and have become a drag on the recovery.

    GOP Texas lawmaker Kevin Brady meanwhile has said he expects more states will follow suit, accusing the White House of being “in denial” that many businesses are struggling to hire more people.

    “Normally when you’re getting unemployment, the whole idea is that’s temporary, and you need to be looking for work to be able to get off unemployment,” DeSantis said of the matter. “It was a disaster, so we suspended those job search requirements. I think it’s pretty clear now, we have an abundance of job openings.”




  24. Labour’s union paymasters get their rewards

    Labour’s so-called Fair Pay Agreements (basically compulsory wage controls) are an ideologically driven project without any sound analytical or evidential basis for the problem they claim exists. Treasury themselves acknowledge this point.

    The Cabinet Paper says FPA’s could lead directly to:

    businesses having to cut costs by reducing staff numbers and hours.
    businesses possibly leaving the market.
    driving costs up for goods and services.
    wide-spread negative effects on employment.
    uncertain implications for productivity.

    The Government says our labour market has an “entrenched weakness” in that a majority of employees are not in a union. This is despite also claiming our labour market has strengths in creating jobs, high rates of participation, and our workforce is relatively skilled and qualified.

    Once again, it’s an ideological solution looking for a problem. It is also deeply concerning when you actually consider that unions:

    help decide who is the Labour Party Leader.
    donate a significant amount of money to Labour (over $450k since 2017).
    are made up of mostly Labour Party members.

    So, what do these agreements actually do? Well, they:

    clearly breach the principle of ‘freedom of association’.
    basically introduce compulsory wage controls.
    legislate that non-union members contact information can be obtained by unions.
    will not prevent unions from including other messages in communications.
    will allow unions access to workplaces without employer’s consent.
    will see up to $75,000 paid by the Government to a union for bargaining each FPA.
    will see annual payments of $250,000 to the Council of Trade Unions for three years.
    will see 90 per cent of a workforce at the mercy of the other 10 per cent.
    will see entire industries bound by agreements whether they participate in the FPA bargaining process or not.

    So basically, Labour have delivered a policy their own Treasury say isn’t supported by evidence, will not help workers, but will substantially help the unions that fund them directly.

    National’s position is clear. We respect the individual freedom and choice of Kiwis to make their own decisions in their workplace. The National Party will repeal these recycled National Awards.

    The British company Oxitec is deploying a total of 144,000 genetically modified mosquitoes to study how to control their reproduction and thus stop the spread of dengue, Zika, and other types of ailments in humans and animals.
    As reported by Axios , the company, which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation , released the mosquitoes a week ago from the Florida Keys.


    except….what about the mutations Bill…

    GM Mosquito Progeny Not Dying in Brazil: Study
    Sep 17, 2019

    A field experiment in Brazil that deployed genetically modified mosquitoes to control wild populations of the pest may be having unintended consequences. According to a genetic analysis of mosquitoes in the area, it appears the engineered stock has bred with wild mosquitoes and created viable, hybrid insects, scientists reported.




  26. Cricket: Forget the thwack of leather on willow, bamboo could make the best cricket bat
    Few sounds signal the arrival of springtime quite like the crack of leather on willow as the cricket season gets under way.

    But in a development destined to send shudders through cricket pavilions around the world, Cambridge University has suggested that cricket bats should actually be made of bamboo.

    According to researchers at the Centre for Natural Material Innovation, bamboo cricket bats would be lighter, stronger and offer a larger “sweet spot” – the point from which the ball achieves maximum acceleration.


    The study points out that there is a shortage of good-quality willow in England, which takes up to 15 years to mature to the point where the wood can be used to make cricket bats.

    By contrast, Moso and Guadua, the two most suitable types of structural bamboo, grow abundantly in China, across South East Asia and South America,

    Ongoing shortages of medical equipment causing concern as Covid-19 continues to disrupt supply chains

    Those on the frontline of patient care in NZ are worried that crucial medical supplies are still scarce over a year after Covid-19 started affecting supply lines around the world.

    The disruption to global supply chains caused by Covid-19 is far from over, with hospitals being hit by shortages of drugs and other key surgical equipment.

    Health authorities have juggled global shortages of drugs like anaesthetics and other key surgical equipment during the pandemic.

    Operating theatres in NZ were put on notice last year when global supplies of the highly favoured anaesthetic, propofol, began running low.

    “Propofol is a medication that I’d say just about every patient in New Zealand who gets an anaesthetic receives, it’s very widely used,” Sally Ure of the College of Anaesthetists said.

    “Suxamethonium is a muscle relaxant that we use when we need to secure someone’s airway in an emergency when they’ve got a full stomach,” Ure said.

    Hospitals were advised to conserve stock as New Zealand’s drug buying agency, Pharmac, sought alternative supplies.

    Some specialists who don’t want to be identified have said they were concerned that operations would be affected if things got worse.

    Guest editors at a major academic pharmacology journal resigned after a paper on Ivermectin had been pulled for no good reason after successfully navigating peer review.


    “The recent extraordinary and unprecedented actions by Frontiers in the rejection of the review manuscript “REVIEW OF THE EMERGING EVIDENCE DEMONSTRATING THE EFFICACY OF IVERMECTIN IN THE PROPHYLAXIS AND TREATMENT OF COVID-19” and the original research manuscript “HOSPITALIZED COVID-19 PATIENTS TREATED WITH CELECOXIB AND HIGH DOSE FAMOTIDINE ADJUVANT THERAPY SHOW SIGNIFICANT CLINICAL RESPONSES” after review and acceptance of each manuscript by four/five well qualified peer reviewers (during final validation) is what has prompted our collective resignation.”





  30. Melanoma concerns?….Not to worry….these bastards have inreased those worries.

    Owner of sunscreen testing lab used by NZ companies admits $63m fraud

    Consumer NZ chief executive Jon Duffy said a number of New Zealand-based manufacturers had used AMA Laboratories to justify SPF claims.
    “For many years, manufacturers sent us test reports from AMA Laboratories when our tests found their sunscreens weren’t up to standard. Manufacturers continued to rely on AMA Laboratories’ results despite our tests showing products failed to meet their label claims,” Duffy said.

    “With all the attention on this issue, it isn’t reasonable for a manufacturer to maintain that an AMA Laboratories report is good evidence its product provides the protection claimed on the label. Consumers have been deceived.”
    In a country with melanoma rates as high as New Zealand, Kiwis are entitled to expect better, Duffy said.
    Duffy said any manufacturer that relied on reports from AMA Laboratories should urgently retest its products.
