WilD FOOD... WILD TIME!

PORTS WIDE OPEN MV RENA: WHAT WAS HER CARGO Since the breakup of the MV Rena both the authorities and military have leaped into action in contrast to their initial response (where the navy alone was put on standby but given no orders for four days).

The annual Hokitika Wildfoods Festival will be held on Saturday, 10 March 2012. A gastronomic celebration of wild foods, the Hokitika Wildfoods Festival has something foreveryone. For those who appreciate gourmet greatness, there will be scallop kebabs, wild pork sausages and bacon, spit roast venison, paua patties, kina shots, marinated tuna, whitebait patties, whalebait, and deep-fried shark. This year, festival-goers can also savourrare fare – Fish ‘n Game are giving away samples of pukeko, smoked trout and paradise duck. For those game enough, there is something to challenge even the strongest of palates. For the main course, there’s snails, seagull eggs, grasshoppers, mountain oysters, crocodile and kangaroo bites, and those willing can choose how they would like their huhu grub – live, cooked, or even chocolate-coated! For dessert, there’s colostrum cheesecake, mastitis mousse, or comb honey chucks and honey ice cream pancakes.

a week after my appearance on the Vinny Eastwood Show, then identified aluminum byproduct cryolite mislabeled and stored in the stern. Dr Nick Smith, Minister of the Environment, would naturally play this down as he had also played down the role of Corexit 9000, a nano-engineered emulsifier used not just in oil exploration but for oil dispersal. It is linked to, first, an aggressive flu (which often goes untreated) before long term neurondisorders arise at later date which can strike up to year after initial contact with high rate of illness. So, in the Gulf of Mexico, the high level of illness amidst volunteers and clean upworkers continue to worry health officials.

This includes very specific instructions: to stay clear of all containers and not to touch any of the “milk powder” that was ashore. The government (Nick Smith to be specific) via the media acknowledged hazardous goods including cryolite were aboard the stern where this author has long suspected hazardous goods may be stored. This follows “11” hazardous goods being known to have been on the MV Rena.

3. Potassium nitrate class 5.1

www.bayofplentytimes.co.nz/news shipleaking-oil-and-may-have-dangerous/1128069

4. Ferrosilicon which emits a flammable gas when in contact with water.

Alkyd sulfuric acid alone has been identified by the media, leaving initially ten other cargoes unidentified as to what they are and what steps are now being taken to protect the public and the environment.

1. Hydrogen peroxide

More importantly these were cargoes listed according to UN classifications as “International dangerous goods identification number” but, as I noted on the Vinny Eastwood Show, we were given no guarantee that things were not being mislabeled or marked ‘tractor parts’. My fear was that any deliberate toxic waste stored would be in the stern where it was most likely to be lost if the ship broke apart.

2. Trichloroiscyanuric acid

And sure as little apples are green, TV3,

With a little help from FaceBook site, MV Rena Response Monitoring and Action Group, I then identified the following:

With this in mind, it hard not to see why the Minister of the Environment, Dr Nick Smith’s remarks that Corexit was as harmless as dish washing liquid have been lambasted by environmental salvage experts who denounce Smith’s statement as an outright fabrication. “They are more harmful than the oil itself, and they are not less toxic than dish washing liquid!” www.sciencelearn.org.nz/News-Events/News/ Rena-wrecked-on-reef-oil-clean-up-on-going cont. pg 2

WILD FOOD... WILD TIME!

PORTS WIDE OPEN

MV RENA: WHAT WAS HER CARGO cont. from pg 1

Not a usual Saturday lunch. To wash it all down, there will be bubbles for the ladies, and Monteiths for the men. Not to mention rhubarb, rose petal and elderflower bubbly, honey mead, kowlua and milk, locally brewed moonshine, and fruit juice slug – not for the fainthearted. And yes, there will once again be stallion semen protein shots for the brave. Pure testosterone.There will be entertainment throughout the day on the main stage, with an assortment of music types and characters, as well as a series of cooking demonstrations by a well-known chef. The festival will also host its very first wedding, with the groom- and bride-to-be regular attendees at the event. For those who don’t really need an excuse to dress up, there is a best-dressed prize for the most creative and imaginative, in keeping with the ‘wild time’ theme. There is also a photography competition and countless photo opportunities – just picture the face of someone crunching the head off a grasshopper, or putting a stillwriggling huhu into their mouth. Tickets to the festival are on sale now, with strong early sales from Australia, Canada and Auckland, as well as Christchurch. Date: 10 March 2012 Venue: Cass Square, Hokitika Time: Gates open at 10am, with the festival closing at 5pm Tickets: Tickets are $37 from Ticketdirect outlets, or $39 at www.ticketdirect.co.nz

cont. from pg 1

Smith is also ignoring in his public briefing the fact that Corexit 95000 is no longer used by BP (responsible for the Horizon gas platform leak) because of health concerns, including the fact that chemicals react differently depending what form they are found in or what they come in contact with. For example, researchers believe Corexit may be up to a hundred times more toxic to humans and other species when in fact mixed with oil or concentrated as is the case in NZ where, initially, spraying methods had Corexit deployed in a concentrated form when dilutions levels where incorrectly applied and ignored Corexit’s own manufacturer’s guidelines not to be sprayed close to shore.

SLEEPING DOG LEGISLATION: What all kiwis, not just food growers should be whining about. As of 2012 New Zealanders will find them selves staring down the barrel of two particularly nasty forms of legislation the already passed the search and surveillance bill and the proposed Food Bill which is to go before NZ parliament this year. The first now gives up to seventy NZ government agencies, such as the NZ Meat Board, unlimited power which can be extended to private security of corporations by said agencies,

The Surveillance bill also does away with the right to silence and its critics maintain may even be used to approve censorship of blogs or website deemed subversive. ie. Information sharing of information or available as matter of public record may now become a crime.

The MSC is believed to be in negotiation with government for a compensation deal which includes recompensating volunteer clean- up workers. It is advised that volunteers check anything they are asked to sign by either MSC or the government in the event of compensation to ensure it does not contains any caveat to prevent legal action from being taken in the future should the need arise. Which bring us back to the issue of what was on the Rena. Officially, 32 containers have now been identified as containing hazardous goods, twenty in the stern cont. pg 3

Shapeshifter, SHIHAD AND DAVID DALLAS TO HEADLINE ORIENTADIUM 20-25 FEBRUARY 2012

Sonic thrash, riff-driven pop and krautrock free-jams . A Dunedin band who describe themselves as “tasty jam with 80% fruit”

The season of bread and circuses in the town where the Tartan Mafia love their togas and wine.

Their recipe as self described on their face book site reads :

This February, OUSA present the biggest Orientation Week the country has ever seen, hosting top flight New Zealand music legends Shapeshifter, Shihad, David Dallas along with well known support acts such as Cairo Knife Fight, Home Brew and Sunshine Sound System.

“Simon Maclaren – former guitar-slinging front man with ’90s trash popsters Love’s Ugly Children, prime mover behind revered krautrock hypnotists The Subliminals and creator of melodic dream time entity Sleepers Union; Wildly popular music-comedy sensation The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra are back on the road with their newest record, “I Love You…”, another serving of infectious, ukulele-infused hit songs. This tour sees the orchestra play new towns never before explored by the band, who look forward to bringing their charming swagger to new corners of New Zealand. Heavenly harmonies and stunning solos are juxtaposed against hilariously budget special effects, madcap antics and questionable banter, delighting crowds of all ages. Lead by Age Pryor (Fly My Pretties, Woolshed Sessions), the band formed six years ago at a tiny café in Wellington and have since become a cult favourite, causing a mad scramble for tickets wherever they go. WELLINGTON INTERNATIONAL UKULELE ORCHESTRA WHERE: Sammy’s Dunedin WHEN: Friday 9th March 2012 TIME: 9.00pm (doors open at 8pm)

Pour in a measure of Lucy Hunter – a member of the opposite sex and a member of Opposite Sex; Add a generous dollop of Jeff Harford – occupier of the drummer’s throne for a line of Dunedin outfits that goes as far back as Bored Games and takes in the likes of The Rip, My Deviant Daughter and Valve along the way. Polish off with a dash of Geordie Frame – formerly of the mysterious Metal Cactus and now mulch-instrumentalist extraordinaire

BOOKS WITH BITE

Shapeshifter are unquestionably New Zealand’s greatest drum and bass act, their live shows are an unmissable staple for a Kiwi summer and OUSA is making sure Dunedin gets their share this summer along with support from mainlanders Sunshine Sound System and NightshadeOn the back of touring in Europe and releases on the legendary UK based Hospital Records.Add to that Cairo Knife Fight and Dunedin’s own Knives at Noon and you’ve got a Rock n Roll lesson so good it should be made compulsory.

Hip-hop heroism abounds when Harlembased superstar David Dallas brings his full live band to Dunedin for the very first time, sharing the stage with heavyweights PNC & P Money and rap’s enigmatic enfant terrible Home Brew. Orientadium MMXII assembles New Zealand’s funniest Shorter Person (Dai Henwood), youngest Billy T Award Winner (Rhys Mathewson) and biggest fan fiction fan (Rose Matafeo) for a night of Big Laugh Comedy, and the legendary Toga Party kicks off the week’s celebrations with big time tunes from Bulletproof & Jessie G.

A Little West Coast GEM Empire Under the Long White Cloud self published by author Gary Blair is quite frankly a bloody good yarn and Mr Blair should be very proud of himself. I have read it and a que has formed in household by other members also wanting to read it after watching the reactions of those who have. 8 years in the making, this is a fact based fictional novel. The book is written by Gary Blair, who was once a jockey in his youth, apprentice to the late Ray Harris from |Tuahiwi. Based in the mid 1850s, and the story follows a lads fight for survival in this the furthest outpost of the British Empire. And his experience on the Collingwood Goldfields, the history of the early mariners, the story of Te Rauparaha, and the slaughter of the tribes who lived in the far north of Te Wai Pounamu between 1827 -1831 and beyond. The book works on many levels as historic novel revealing the seedy history of NZ politics, gun runners, race relations and those with greed in their eyes.

of the 1800’s was. The books also works as parody on greed and what happens when loose sight of with real prize and you get the feeling and appreciate that the author is sharing his own insight of this philosophy via this most remarkable tale. Finally it is romance made all the more poignant by the integrity paid to the story conclusions. Emprie Under the Long Wite Clouds Is Not a sophisticated read but an honest one handled with care and love. If you enjoyed the simplicity but detail of Huckleberry fin you will certainly enjoy this tale for sure. http://www.trademe.co.nz/books/ fiction-literature/new-zealand/author-ac/ auction-430697801.htm

On another level the book is simply good yarn about NZ pioneer history which brings history alive warts and all (including oral sex and opium). Detailed from start to end from how to pack a pipe to breaking a horse in but rarely dry or drawn out in way that make the reader know the author has forgotten them. It confirms what I have long known NZ history was every bit colorful as the Wild West and Cowboy era but until now has it interest suck dry by academics historian and Victorian Presbyterianism, regional parochialism. The sort of censored version which glossed over the seedy and made NZ history slightly less exciting than a frontal lobotomy patient on Valium. We need more books like this to remind us of just what a fascinating (and often violent) place the NZ

information on Fleur, the restaurant, local suppliers and the Moeraki area.

The restaurant, run by the inimitable Fleur Sullivan, was ‘Just one of those places that keeps cropping up in conversations’ whenever there was a gathering of ‘foodies’, he said. Set in the sleepy little fishing village of Moeraki on the Otago coast, Fleurs Place has an unbeatable setting. There’s water on three sides, fishing boats bobbing in the harbor, the famous Moeraki boulders across the bay and, to the north, the open sea. Fleur uses only the freshest of local ingredients - indeed, fishing boats land their catches right into her restaurant. This book combines recipes supplied by Fleur herself with photographs of the spectacular scenery of coastal Otago and the Moeraki area. Side-bar text includes

TIME FOR TEA & A SPOT OF CAKE Annie’s Victorian Tea Rooms – a Living History Experience of Hospitality with Style in the Traditional Victorian Manner where everything Stops For Tea! One of the newest businesses to start in Oamaru, Annie’s Victorian Tea Rooms & Store is an exclusive tea rooms and the Gateway to Oamaru’s Victorian Precinct . This is the collection of the oldest Victorian buildings in Australasia – one of New Zealand’s best kept secrets. The tea rooms building itself was originally used as a draper store in 1871, followed by AMP and book store, in 1885. This is a popular place for both morning and afternoon tea or light lunch. Once inside, you will be greeted by a butler and maid and transported back to an elegant age with the Victorian surroundings of white tablecloths, flowers, pictures, warm fire, when needed, and occasionally music from the pianoforte. You are served homemade sumptuous cake, sandwiches with good strong leaf tea or coffee from fine chinaware. “It brings out the lady and gentleman in us all.” Opening hours 10.00am to 7.00pm Tuesdays – Sundays or by appointment for any functions.

The Waitaha have been struggling to be regognised as an independent people, the first indigenous people of In 2004, an extremely rare gold-colored kea/ parrot was sighted near their mountain Aoraki (Mount Cook). In Waitaha mythology, such a bird is thought to carry messages from the ancestors and it is understood to be a sign, or “tohu”.

Gardens move people in different ways according to where, when and how they have lived their lives, their collective memories and cultural experiences. We are all caught up in some way with what has gone before. It is a space which gathers around itself a history to which assumptions cling. To some extent assumptions from historical precedents determined from antiquity influence us, but more importantly we are influenced by our own history and by moving around in other peoples’ culture and beliefs. To the modern mind the idea of gardens as conveyors of meaning is an unfamiliar one. Yet a garden can convey meaning in a similar way that a building can. Like a good poem, a garden contains many levels of meaning and draws a different response from every individual. For on the personal level, only you know the meaning of your garden

Loan & Mercantile Looking for a preserve, chutney, relish or pickle just like your Grandma used to make? Then look no further, because French Chef Gilbert Prevort from The Loan & Mercantile is the creator of the most amazing condiments using the freshest North Otago produce. How it all started... Fleur Sullivan, owner of Fleurs Place in Moeraki, was the visionary behind the opening of The Loan & Mercantile, a tavern and eating house in Oamaru’s historic precinct. The Loan & Merc (as it’s known to locals) developed a wide range of North Otago renowned produce into preserves, chutneys, relishes, pickles and other specialty lines. And it was through a great working relationship with Fleur when it all started for French Chef Gilbert Prevort.

NZ may as well hang a sign saying “Toxic waste pirates unwelcome”, because, whatever fee is imposed on those who dare transgress, it would be nothing compared to the profit to be made from their trade. Especially when insurance is included into the booty. No proof exists that this was the case in the Rena case but the fact remains the Mediterranean Shipping Company have a nasty history which extends to deliberate dumping of toxic waste and then lying about it afterwards. To recap from my DEADLINE first blog on the Rena (www.postmanproductions.org) MSC not only have a horrific history of not only shipping toxic waste but of deliberately spilling oil and waste. In Israel, MSC deliberately leaked oil, using a pipe fitted in the ship into the harbor.See -- Bunkerworld News - Latest News - Israeli court imposes country’s ‘highest ever fine’ for oil spill. www.bunkerworld.com

In England, MSC Carla spilt open, pouring radioactive barrels into the British Channel after the old ship, badly maintained, broke up. www.iaea.org/About/Policy/GC/GC42/SciProg/gc42scifor-8.pdf

Toxic waste was also found on the wreck of the MSC Napoli and along British beaches from yet another UK incident, the MSC NapoliDisaster: ‘Containers Washed Up’ www.superstock.co.uk. In India, in 2010, MSC Chitra-MV Khadija Oil Spill caused millions in damage. www.marineinsight.com www.marineinsight.com/news headline/2010msc-chitra-mv-khadija-oil-spill-damageworth-rs-515-crore/ In the UK, tonnes of used syringes and condoms rejected from Brazil were sent back after containers under the guise of recyclable plastic on an MSC ship sent to Brazil were found to be actually illegal waste. MSC was later fined by government of Brazil for their role in illegal toxic waste dumping. While in the USA, MSC was to illustrate their

MSC Ship Management would, in the end, plead guilty. But only because authorities gave them no other chance and were determined to make the maritime firm accountable. On 2 Nov 2010, The Maritime Union of Australia would raise serious concerns over the Flag of Convenience (FOC) shipping system, after another near disaster when the Liberian-flagged MSC Basel ran aground off Brisbane yesterday morning. The ship is also suspected of being involved in radioactive shipments and is licensed to ship major hazards class A.

Maritime NZ media spokesman, Sophie Hazlehurst, confirmed 32 container identified as hazardous, including the cryolite, but was unable to answer the vast majority of our inquiries, as she “did not want to prejudice As for the MV Rena and MSC New Zealand current investigations” which included the operations, the MSC Basel is a ship that, in ship’s and the company’s history and how fact, regularly visits Wellington and Lyttelton these were relevant to the accident.

Jonathan White Exhibition Heart in the Wilderness

Since then DEADLINE has attempted to contact both Grant Dyson of Braemar Howells UK who are handling the Rena salvage operations and Dr Vim Nijhof, the manager of the National Radiation Laboratory, and Maritime NZ to ask the following questions: This outstanding exhibition is on for a limited time at Mountfort Gallerys spacious 170 square meter premises in the heart of QUEEENSTOWN. This represents a very rare opportunity to see the largest single body of work ever exhibited by Jonathan,it is the first major exhibition in over 10 years.

However, the cryolite was not correctly labeled, and not recognized as a dangerous good. MNZ did not receive confirmation that the cryolite had not been mislabeled until 22 November nearly two months after the accident when MNZ had already contacted the firm and being told only container had hazardous goods. In other words, MSC only came clean once the presence of a dangerous cargo had already being identified. When asked in fact how it could be deemed that MNZ action were not related to the media query and therefore MSC action seen in light of coming clean only after being caught red handed lying to Maritime NZ, Ms Hazlehurst responded that she was unable to answer that as she “did not have the relevant information in front of her.” Ms Hazlehurst likewise was unable to confirm monitoring of the Rena was

taking pace but as to whether the ship was being monitored for other material including radioactive material she advised that we contact the firm in charge of the ships salvage operations (Fitza) and that Maritime New Zealand records of the current hazardous goods on board the MV Rena where largely “reliant on the information provided by the shipping company.” In other words, the public would just have to take the word of firm with a history of criminal action and fraud at their word when MNZ accepted the “strong assurance by MSC that there are no other potentially dangerous goods on board that have not been declared.” DEADLINE rang the number of the both the cargo and ship salvage operators respectively several times and, to date, none of their appointed media spokes people have picked up the phone to answer queries. We also contacted MSC NZ agents directly, seeking to submit questions to them, including their past history of being involved in shipping contraband through NZ, such as the discovery last year of MSC containers found to be carrying Chinese made armaments parts (the third such arms- related discovery in Dunedin since 2003 when both missile components and the radioactive by product tantalum were unearthed in containers at the Port of Otago. DEADLINE then contacted The National Radiation Laboratory manager, Wim Nijhofs, who was then asked to comment on above normal radiation levels taken by DEADLINE’S own source, taken form car windscreen in Dunedin “after some light rain this afternoon”, that returned “0.32 microSieverts per hour, mostly alpha and beta [gamma waves]”, leading our specialists to respond ,“It’s here.” Dr Wims responded, “That’s a very, very low reading, probably attributable to background radiation.” but then admitted, when we pointed out source was doctorate level physic student who specialized in radioactive health and safety, that he could not be sure and verification was difficult as the NRL was operating on a make- shift basis following the December Christchurch quake. Dr Wims concluded that, as far as he was aware, the NRL were not liaising with Maritime Services or the salvage teams and were not involved in monitoring or taking readings. Relevant to why NZ should be concerned by MSC presence in NZ and the exact content of the Rena is the article: ‘Why Is This Cargo Container Emitting So Much Radiation?’ www.wired.com which reads: “On July 13, 2010, MSC cargo container arrived in Genoa,

Distinctive blends reflect changing tastes Gone are the days when whiskey was distilled in a few, generally colder countries. Many brands now come out of distilleries in tropical countries like India where the mass produced drink is often blended with imported Scotch and sweetened to taste. Up to recently, Australia and NZ’s whiskey making efforts were often described as ‘experimental’. But that failed to recognise a strong down under tradition that goes all the way back to the early whalers. The first recorded kiwi distiller was Owen McShane, who by 1838 was supplying whaling settlements around the South Coast, from Waikawa to Preservation Inlet. Nowadays, regional

Terry started his working career as a carpenter in Christchurch, taking off for his OE before then settling in Golden Bay 35 years ago. He was one of the co-instigators and builders of Awaroa Lodge in the early 1990s, then later set up making honey mead and developing his Le Champs de Miel honey bubbly, a world first for a methode traditionalle from honey. When the cost of manuka honey dealt to that business, Terry set up his distillery where he was joined by his partner Rachel. Their main equipment is a three-metre high all-glass triple distillation still with a 200 litre capacity. Around five years ago they also bought a large quantity of 14-year old rum in barrels to blend with their range of liqueurs and toppings.

The SimPit unique features set it apart from typical flight simulators with quality visual and motion effects. Its six projectors providing a 270-degree field of vision are coupled with a computer controlled motion platform and versatile instructor’s station; users can select from more than 100 different aircraft ranging from a gliders and helicopters to an F18 or Boeing Airbus. They can fly in any conditions, over extremely realistic and highly detailed terrain in NZ Australia and other locations around the world, fly pre-set VFR and IFR scenarios and complete missions including search and rescue and even duel or aerobatic flights with others.

Schnapp Dragon’s distinctly Golden Bay range now also includes 14 other lines of fruit liquers, honey and fruit wines and a range of citrus cellos, all from fruit harvested locally from organic orchards and citrus groves. Terry says the inspiration for his operation View from inside the SimPit cockpit - Story came from a trip around Europe. “Every opposite page village seemed not only to have a small distillery that processed excess fruit into wines, spirits and liqueurs, but its facilities

The brain child of Tomas Zahradka who has a passion for “everything which can be flown - helicopters, airplanes, wingsuits, parachutes, kites - you name it”. Tomas worked in aviation industry for almost over 8 years as a skydiving instructor, wingsuit instructor and finally as a helicopter instructor until he started building the SimPit. Tomas interests in simulators began in 1991 playing the F117 stealth fighter and the “legendary Elite on good old ZX Spectrum. Tomas states “back then all games ran on the special and super powerful graphic chip called imagination - I used to sit in front of a small 14” Black and White TV till late at night imagining all the fantastic cockpits and scenery around myself - something that inspires me still...growing up I got hooked on science fiction and I’ve dreamt about owning one of the VFX1- the first virtual reality helmets, and living and working in cyber space. Later on I’ve become the proud owner of VR920 the grand, grand, grandchild of VFX 1. In 2009 I Tomas decided to change careers from skydiving instructor and became a helicopter pilot/instructor. “Naturally when I started learning to fly I started looking for something like that around for helicopter training - nothing.

So I started building a small SimPit myself to help myself through the training. Lack of funds and expensive hardware forced me to think about alternatives, and 3D technology came out as the cheapest and the best option” Since then Simpit wings have spread and currently only the sky is the limit.

For the last six years, Terry Knight and Rachel Raine of Schnapp Dragon Distillery in Takaka have been using the simple ingredients of malted barley, yeast and Te Waikoropupu aquifer water that’s been underground 10 years to make their distinctive Waitui single malt. Peated in the distilling process with Chatham Island peat, it is then subtly infused with a hint of manuka honey to give its rich aroma and flavour. Only small batches of the 37 percent spirit is produced, which is then stored for four years in oak barrels before hand bottling. Explains Terry; “Although a lot of distilleries don’t allude to it, honey has been long been used for sweetening up whiskey. The delicate oak gives the whiskey its ‘weight’ but the manuka honey definitely delivers an almost toffee taste that’s in perfect balance with the malt. It takes away the ‘garish’ taste that whiskey definitely presents for some.”

were often used as a processing centre by the wider community for turning their excess crops into food products. This business model could work well for many NZ towns.”

Climo states “Being one of the “True Kaitiaki” (Natural gaurdians)of pounamu i have always been round pounamu my entire life. Though i did’nt start carving till later it always was a fascination. I loved looking at the pieces in Museums that my Tipuna (ancestors) had done, mostly simple forms all done by hand. With tools of today makes just about anything possible, the only limits being the brain. I mess around with other arts as well having my own band, a 3 piece, we play all sorts of events playing what we call “Twisted Bluegrass” . With carving , i love the fact that whatever is made from Jade is around “forever” as this stuff don’t rot in time.

Developed in Port Chalmers, NZ.Possum fur was chosen because it is simply the best material available for the purpose. The only other fur with this characteristic is the polar bear. As you would expect this gives possum fur outstanding thermal qualities. It feels like it radiates heat. As an introduced and unwanted species in NZ, the possum is responsible for endangering native flora and fauna, the use of the fur is therefore a positive ecological action, contributing to the ongoing survival of birds such as the kiwi.

The Art of Qi Sunny Chen gives an insight into the art of Hang Sang How do illnesses and suffering come about? How should we deal with them? On the broader level, illness is brought about by genetic influences from the past and everything in our consciousness and behaviour that precludes health, eg; unhealthy emotions and unhealthy life habits. More specifically, all conditions can be attributed to disorders of Qi - Qi deficiency, Qi blockage, poor quality of Qi, or a combination of all these. By replenishing or unblocking Qi, or by improving the quality of Qi, the source of the disease is addressed and the illness will be diminished or eradicated.

Sonny Chin When the three elements work together, nourish each other, transform each other, and influence each other. For example, Shen is the master of Qi, and Qi will influence Jing. Sonny is a master of the Hang Sun Technique which using the Jing qi and Shen aims to combine the mind, the body and the spirit to function as one (the state of alert relaxation). Controlling the breath with our pure consciousness regulates the internal energy and attunes the body to become more receptive for self healing. The mind and body’s energy centres stabilise and harmonise for daily activities - to enjoy life.

Choosing a Tuxedo or Suit for Your Wedding Day Proper fit is the key when it comes to dressing the men in the wedding party. To determine the fit, try on the suit or tuxedo, including the correct shirt and shoes. Place your arms at your sides, fingers extended. The hem of the jacket should be no longer than your middle finger. The sleeve should grace the top of your hand, and your shirt cuff should peek out from the jacket sleeve no more than half an inch. Your trousers should skim the heel of your shoe in back and break slightly over the tops of your shoes in front. Because the extra buttons on a double-breasted jacket draw the eye toward your midsection, that style looks best on someone who’s tall and slender. To create a more debonair silhouette, consider having some extra padding put in the shoulders and the waist taken in a bit.

What’s your style?

Although you work effectively on illness alone, the emphasis of Qi is more on “treating the whole person” since suffering, including illness, occurs when there are problems in life. Most of us experience ignorance, attachment, confusion and other problems which need to be addressed if long-term healing and improvement of life are to be brought about.

Whether you go for a traditional or trendy look, you need to understand the elements of style at your disposal and how to carry them off.

• Cutaway or morning coat: In its

traditional design, this coat is for the most formal morning weddings. Coats are black or gray with a single button at the waist and one broad tail at back. You wear this style of coat with a winged-collared dress shirt, ascot, and striped trousers.

The Principals are; Jing - the physical body and all the physical structure of the body.

• Dinner jacket: In classic white or ivory or a subtle pattern of the same, with peaked lapels or shawl collar. Works well in summer months or in warm climates, in the afternoon or evening, and is considered an appropriate substitute for a standard tuxedo. Great for a casual wedding or a rehearsal dinner .Available for purchase or rent at a formalwear shop.

Qi - life force, vital force. Shen - the consciousness, the spirit, the true self and the soul.

• Stroller coat: Variation of the morning coat, usually hip length. Looks good with fancy waistcoats. • Tails: A jacket that’s short in front with two longer tails hanging in back. Worn with braces (suspenders) and a white pique shirt, vest, and bow tie (as in “white tie and tails”). Very formal. • Traditional tuxedo or black tie: Usually worn after 6 p.m., but can appear at a formal daytime wedding anytime after noon. A black or gray jacket with a single button is the most classic. Has shawl, peak, or notched lapels.

• Updated black tie: The evening suit is a newer variation on the classic tux with the satin or grosgrain trim on the lapel and pants legs, albeit subtly. These tuxes are worn with a black shirt and a regular tie in lieu of a bow tie, and often with a belt rather than suspenders.

Antique furnishings combined with the amenities discerning travellers demand; contribute to the unique graciousness and ambience. Food and wine are integral to the Lodge experience with evening table d’hôte fine dining a highlight. Informally elegant and relaxing with personalised unobtrusive service – Pen-y-bryn is the perfect place to indulge, relax and unwind.

Finding the right suit, tuxedo, and accessories can take as much time as locating the perfect wedding gown. If you’re getting married in a popular wedding month and are planning to rent for yourself and/or the ushers, reserve the tuxedos as soon as possible so that you don’t wind up with the dregs. Because you’ll be on your honeymoon, have the best man return rented outfits the first working day after the wedding.

Cashflow forecasts are a management tool that can be used in the decision making process. It is much like driving a car. You normally look out of the window screen looking forward (forecasting) and occasionally refer to the rear vision mirror (historical information). A cashflow forecast is used to assess possible funding requirements and to explore the likely financial consequences of alternative scenarios. The forecast can be used to prevent major planning errors, anticipate problems, and to identify areas where improvements can be made to the cashflow.

THOUGHTS OF A RANDOM MAN cont. from pg 3

where really open, ya could spot it in your day. Its like when you think something, it happens without even saying anything. The other day we got given two computers with out screens and I thought: we need to screens. 15 minutes later, two separate people walk through our door with a screen each and here is me thinking I just thought of those screens we needed and here they are in front of me. Once upon a time I didn’t understand thought. sometimes I still don’t but when my eyes opened up and the walls came crashing down. the whole world changed around me. If I was happy, everyone was happy. If I was sad, everyone was sad. its like I’m in the movie The

Matrix and I can adjust my thoughts to work the surroundings and take a thought from my head and make it real. I challenge you to try it. Sit an old computer in the corner. Make sure its broken, maybe a ibm 386. acknowledge its there every time you walk past it so when you look back you’ll find the new one is right in front of you. So every edition now, will write about my thoughts. I will let you in on them and hopefully they take us somewhere together. Just maybe we can open some eyes together

Italy. It had torrents of radiation coming out of it. No one knew what was inside, and no one knew what to do next and here’s the crazy thing -millions like this toxic payload pass thru Italy every year in trade worth billions”.

New Zealanders need to be asking these questions over and over - over and over again and keep asking tell we get actual answers because we’re not getting them now - that’s for certain.

Unlike Italy NZ does not have, as John Key the Prime Minister of NZ admitted, the equipment to make such detection possible so we have no idea what comes in and out of our ports. Or what might be on any given ship in NZ waters including the sinking MV Rena.

DEALDINE advises members of the public who remain worried as to the precise cargo and dangers the Rena may pose to contact MP Nick Smith, Minister for the Environment.

And, as we know, radioactive waste is shipped through NZ all the time. We know the RENA carried toxic materials – but as to what exactly we now have to rely on a company with a history of dishonest behavior andapparently little effort by the authorities to monitor the ship forsign of any other hazardous goods. www.3news.co.nz/Renas-owners-refuse-to-give-answers/

Email: nick.smith@national.org.nz and express their concerns and then forward Dr Smith’s response back to DEALDINE or other media outlets.

Ph: 03 466 4370 email courses @diveotago.co.nz operator at sea in our parts, as we see when we look into the history of the MV Tycoon which is currently spilling oil into sea off Christmas Island. And like the Rena, took place as consequence of crew undertaking actions which seemed odd in terms of the obvious obstacles present and the expected course of action. Cargo and the missing container carrying by MNZ more than 30,000kg of toxic material aside, the Rena wreck, if nothing else has shown NZ there are gaping holes in the security of our ports and public safety, via the issue of what is exactly passing through our waters. It also exposes major issues on how can NZ even think of further oil exploration. Not at least until we have shored up our ability to react to such an incident and have better understanding of the chemicals used both to disperse and conduct oil exploration which the likes of Dr Nick Smith are clearly in denial of.
