    • Pat 2.1

      I have several thousand hectares of soon to be productive land an easy commute from McMurdo to sell you if youre interested…..and all for less than a majority shareholding in a Silicon Valley Tech Co.

      • veutoviper 2.1.1

        LOL!

      • bwaghorn 2.1.2

        Would you chuck a bridge to get there in as well .

        • Pat 2.1.2.1

          could probably manage a seat on a Hercules, one way for the the right buyer

                Had an Malaysia A400 fly over the house this morning which might do the tick as it can do the the return trip on a tank of gas, as for the para jump in I’m not too keen on (if I got too the UK in the late 90’s I was going to look into joining the Paras if my 3 other choices got knock back)

    Baking in the Netherlands.

    Unbelievable. In 117 years of records here in central NL, the hottest day had a 24h average of 27.1°C.On Thursday, the record leaped to 27.7°C.And yesterday, it rocketed to 29.8°C, over 2 full degrees warmer than any day before!Terrifying, even. pic.twitter.com/zaCjZxTs1F— Kees van der Leun (@Sustainable2050) July 28, 2018

      Well it’s not surprising considering there are wild fires within the Arctic Circle aka Northern Sweden and Finland atm which are unheard in modern times. Hell even I’m starting to think our build up has started a couple of mths early here in Darwin as there been an awful lot of big black fluffy clouds rolling and the humidity hitting the high 60’s/ Low 70’s already which we expect to to see around October/ November.

  5. Exkiwiforces 5

    That’s interesting map and thank you whoever put it up. Btw is there a link to the whatever that site is? As it poses some interesting questions IRT to Antarctic Region IRT the Antarctic Land claims suspend under the Antarctic Treaty and the Arctic Sea claims around the Nth Pole.

    Government seeks public input on well-being indicators

    “Our nation’s well-being is not a number on a GDP chart, and our government, this government, recognises that,” Mr Shaw said. “The economy is obviously important but GDP is not the be all, end all.”

    Mr Shaw said this was about understanding the real picture of success and well-being that went beyond just productivity and turnover and throughput.

    “Most people will tell you that the security of their job, the health of their kids and their ability to pay the power bill is more important to them.”

    https://www.radionz.co.nz/news/political/363044/government-seeks-public-input-on-well-being-indicators

    On that note, lets start with taking count of the number of power bills that are missed annually.

    The number of suicides.

    The number of hardship grants.

    The number of thefts/robberies, violent crime.

    The number of Homelessness/NZ Housing waiting list.

    The above are a number of measurable indicators to start things off.

    What measurable indicators would you add to the list?

  7. Fireblade 7

    There was an exchange during Question Time today which was interesting considering Peter Goodfellow’s recent comments.

    Hon Simon Bridges: (comment at the end of supplementary question) All he can do is come down to the House and make jokes about it?

    Rt Hon Winston Peters: (starts answer with) Look, I can’t win the jokes stakes; I’m looking at one, in terms of his ambition.

    Hon Gerry Brownlee: A point of order, Mr Speaker. If it’s parliamentary to refer to a member as being a joke, would it not equally be parliamentary to refer to a member as being drunk?

    Mr Speaker: My view is that one is a matter of fact and the other is a matter of opinion. If the member is seriously suggesting the latter in the House and he is inaccurate, he is making a gross breach of privilege.

    Hon Gerry Brownlee: Speaking to the point of order—

    Mr Speaker: No, there is no point of order. The member will resume his seat

    Hon Gerry Brownlee: Well, I’m entitled to an explanation, surely.

    Mr Speaker: The member will resume his seat.

    Auckland 2050: Council report paints dystopian future for the city

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/105888488/Auckland-2050-Council-report-paints-dystopian-future-for-the-city

    “Roller doors have fallen across shops in Three Kings, Mt Albert and Birkenhead forcing frightened residents to shop in locked-down malls, while those with jobs live behind the walls of heavily-guarded, gated communities.”

    But these are not scenes from The Hunger Games, they are featured in an Auckland Council document which sets out the city’s blueprint for the next 30 years …

    But Best of All! – “The equality of the 1970s is a distant memory that shows no sign of returning. There is an obvious divide between those with homes and work, and those without,” the report reads…..

    Hmm… hows its taken this long to work that out! And/or, Coming to a place near You .. Next!

    • Draco T Bastard 8.1

      The inevitable conclusion of capitalism.

      The NASA-funded HANDY model offers a highly credible wake-up call to governments, corporations and business – and consumers – to recognise that ‘business as usual’ cannot be sustained, and that policy and structural changes are required immediately.

      Although the study based on HANDY is largely theoretical – a ‘thought-experiment’ – a number of other more empirically-focused studies – by KPMG and the UK Government Office of Science for instance – have warned that the convergence of food, water and energy crises could create a ‘perfect storm’ within about fifteen years. But these ‘business as usual’ forecasts could be very conservative.

      This is why it has always failed.

      • Dennis Frank 8.1.1

        Yes, I bought his book when it came out. The collapse scenario is realistic (based on complexity theory) but the problem with indeterminacy is that folks always adhere to the status quo. The inertial effect of paradigms (belief systems) entrains believers and keeps them on track. So preparation for disaster is restricted to those in the power structure who are authorised to do contingency-planning and recommend strategies to the governing elites.

        Quantitative easing proved to be an effective such strategy. It saved capitalism from the crisis (gfc), demonstrating the resilience of the system. Escalating natural crises produced by global warming challenge the managerial competence of both governments and elites. Synchronicity of several such is indeed likely within a few years. Insurance is already becoming a non-viable industry: that trend become terminal. Can’t really insure against Gaia.

        Christian fundamentalists will claim it’s God’s will, instead, and the rapture is coming soon. I haven’t heard of Mohammed prophesying global warming bringing an end to civilisation, so could be Islamists will realise he was short-sighted?

    • Gabby 8.2

      So that’s what they’re aiming for.

    • Molly 8.3

      Interesting. Was in a meeting with the eventual Unitary Plan General Manager, right at the beginning of the consultation process and he actually laughed at my suggestion that included in the Unitary Plan should be mechanisms to help transition due to climate change.

      Not surprising that, foregoing any choice regarding actual transition planning – they decide instead to reluctantly ‘accept’ a scenario of a divided Auckland. You would think that even the suggestion would get them working on planning so that does not happen.

    A mansplaining chart that could really help some people.

    “Mansplaining may seem like a trivial issue in isolation, but how we communicate tells other people how much or little they are valued. And in my experience, humans feel better, work more effectively, and behave better when we feel valued ourselves.”

    http://www.bbc.com/capital/story/20180727-mansplaining-explained-in-one-chart

    • Dennis Frank 10.1

      That’s a very well-designed chart! But I think you could sum up the behavioural tendency she targets by including empathy-deficity with paternalism.

      Speaking of which reminds me long ago I learned to handle guys like that. You kind of reflect it back to them in a way that makes them feel out of their depth. Being paternalistic to a paternalist establishes reciprocity, but including an insight into the situation that is obviously highly-relevant yet demolishes their stance has a remarkable effect on their body language (think of a dog slinking away, tail between its legs). Such insights seem to pop into my head in a fraction of a second in those situations. Hubris must be promptly eliminated, of course.

    • Gabby 10.2

      Men can’t read it if it’s stapled to their foreheads marty.

    Tracey Martin got destroyed in question time yesterday…not a good look.

    • AB 11.1

      Anybody who believes that LinkedIn ‘networks’ and ‘endorsements’ mean anything, or that LinkedIn itself is any more that an idiotic, conformist pile of crap, is delusional.
      An appropriate act of revolt would be for everybody to wake up tomorrow and delete their LinkedIn profiles – after all, we only have them because everybody else does. But I guess nobody wants to jump first.

      • Jimmy 11.1.1

        I agree with you on Linkedin. Unfortunately her being caught out regarding the dates of the endorsments just gives someone like Mike Hoskings shit to stir up and try to make them look bad.

  12. Gabby 12

    She’s probably right though. It all looks a bit Cunliffe-lettery. Unless you know of some business or social interactions that haven’t come to light?
