Car parks drive local politician potty BY GABRIELLE STUART A community board member has described the plight of people with disabilities trying to park in the south of the city as “hilarious”. “If you didn’t laugh you’d cry,” said Spreydon-Heathcote Community Board member Karolin Potter. Over the past three weeks, she and fellow community board member Helene Mautner have visited every cluster of shops in the ward, looking at the disability parking spaces. They found problems at more than 20 centres and shopping ar-

eas, including Barrington, Addington and Colombo St. Problems include parks which are too narrow for a driver with a disability to get out of their vehicle, high curbs with no ramp access for wheelchairs, and ramps which are too steep. They were particularly concerned about parking at Pioneer Recreation and Sport Centre, where there are two disabled car parks near the back entrance, and three at the front. The parks at the back are close to an entrance, but Ms Potter said the parks at the front were more than 100m away. • Turn to page 5

ROCK IDOL: Jon Toogood, frontman of New Zealand rock band Shihad, working with year 12 Hillmorton High School student Hunter Haley.

Musicians mentor students BY GABRIELLE STUART Hillmorton High School students have had the chance to work one-to-one with some of their music idols this term. Frontman of New Zealand rock band Shihad, Jon Toogood, and Dave Dobbyn’s house band member Mark Vanilau spent three weeks working with senior music students at the school. They worked with the stu-

dents to help them develop their NCEA compositions. Deputy principal Eleanor Sim said it was very rewarding for the students to have their work looked over by a fresh set of eyes and ears. “The reaction of students has been excellent, as they have come out of their shells and related really well to the advice offered. Jon Toogood even played some bass guitar on one student’s recording. That’s some guest spot.”

The Music Mentors programme is organised by the New Zealand Music Commission. In previous years former student Jason Kerrison of Opshop and Julia Deans of Fur Patrol have visited the school through the programme. “We love the mentoring in schools programme and we always put our hand up for it, and they really seem to enjoy coming here,” Ms Sim said.

Dedication lands award BY GABRIELLE STUART

Somerfield resident Gordon McKay regularly spends 40 hours working as a coastguard volunteer, on top of his full-time job. Last week he had his hard work recognised, being named Coastguard Canterbury Air Patrol Volunteer of the Year. “If you do it for the love you don’t mind it,” Mr McKay said. He has been involved in coastguard work since he was a teenager. He learnt to fly through the British Royal Air Force, and worked for many years on professional rescue ships in the seas around Europe. When he moved to New Zealand in 2006, he joined the coastguard four days after he arrived. “It only took four days and I already missed it,” he said. He said it was a challenge to adjust to the New Zealand volunteer coastguard model. Rescue efforts often take several days, and he said it was sometimes difficult to stop and go back to his job as a project manager for Horncastle Homes. “Sometimes I’ll try to take a holiday just to rest. I have a very understanding boss at work who has supported me the whole way through.” He has a wife and five-year-old daughter, and said it wouldn’t be possible to do the work without his family’s support. “My daughter calls it “daddy’s

My wife is rather understanding, but she would much rather I was doing this than going down to the pub for the rugby with the boys.” Mr McKay has been working to develop aerial drones for search and rescue work, which were used in the search for Christchurch man Peter Crowther, who was lost last year in Arthurs Pass National Park.

Mr McKay has also worked to help air and water based units work better together. He said there was a lot of communication involved in a rescue operation. “On the sea you are focused on what is around you, and everything’s chugging along at a rate of a few knots. In a plane everything runs so much quicker. It’s much faster paced, very snappy, decision orientated. Up top we can see the whole picture.” He said he felt the award reflected the work of the whole team. “Me and my team put a huge amount of effort into this, so it is nice to have that acknowledged.”

Amanda Wallis has won a victory in her battle to make an Addington intersection safer. The mother-of-four has campaigned since April this year to have the intersection of Brougham and Selwyn streets made safer. She organised a petition and several workshops over the issue, as well as a protest this month, which was cancelled because of rain. This month the New Zealand Transport Agency has agreed to make changes to the intersection. A new, two-phase pedestrian crossing will be installed, with a protected pedestrian island in the middle of the highway. A right-turning arrow will also be installed for vehicles turning into Selwyn St. The changes were made public after Wigram MP Megan Woods met with the NZTA to ask it what was happening with the intersection. “Amanda has put so much energy and so much passion into this issue, and I would like to see staff at NZTA sit down and make an effort to communicate with the community.” NZTA traffic and safety manager Tony Spowart was open to the idea. “The transport agency welcomes any future opportunity to meet with the community to discuss the safety issues at the intersection and the initiatives being planned.”

Awesome ideas pushed to Ministry of Awesome founder Kaila Colbin was once a top amateur boxer in New York City. Now, she fights for people with entrepreneurial dreams in Christchurch. Max Towle talked to her about Coffee and Jam, cooking school, and street smarts. Hi Kaila, I can immediately tell you’re from the US from your accent. That’s right, I was born and bred in New York City.

What’s life like there? It’s a little bit like the movies to be honest. There’s always something amazing going on and the kids are all doing ridiculous

things. I thought it was a great place to grow up. I thought I was street smart growing up, but honestly, when I first came to New Zealand about 10 years ago I had trouble with the simple things like hanging up a clothes line or lighting a fire. I couldn’t tell the difference between a sheep and a goat. A friend once said my intelligence goes down with population density when I move around. Why come to New Zealand? It was a boy who brought me here, actually. Are you still together? We’re not together anymore but we are still friends and I am eternally grateful to him for bringing me to this country. Did you have any plans when you came? I literally had no idea what I was going to do when I first came here. I don’t have a simple job title like an accountant or lawyer so I had trouble finding work as someone who was broadly

capable. I had done a whole heap of things before that in the US. My degree was in hotel and restaurant administration. I’ve worked in visual printing, in the wholesale jewellery industry . . . I guess I would call myself a serial entrepreneur. Then I worked in graphic design and for a PR company. I also work for TEDxChristchurch, which is a programme of local events that bring people together to spread ideas. We’ve had events where inspirational speakers speak on a whole heap of subjects. How was the Ministry of Awesome founded? In early 2012, myself and a few like-minded people decided that the city needed support for all the people who were trying, and maybe struggling, to do awesome things. At our first meeting, which was just me, Vicki Buck, Sam Johnson, and (former Ngai Tahu strategy manager) Sacha McMeeking, we just had a coffee at the Addington Coffee Co-op and signed a mock constitution. In our early days, we would just have dinner with someone rather than having a meeting in an office or something. What is the Ministry of Awesome? We try and open doors for people and help them make connections with key people in the city. We run around 70 events each year and have lots of people come along to our meetings. We have hundreds of one-on-ones with

people to offer them support. We basically want to push people in Christchurch who are entrepreneurial. People shouldn’t think they’re crazy just because they have a crazy idea. What we might see is a computer programmer turn up at one of our meetings and say they want to get involved in a project, then someone else might say: “Hey, I’m looking for a computer programmer.” We try and foster those serendipitous moments. Pick one recent success that the ministry has had? Just recently, we gave a hand to Amy Burke who’s running the Help for the Homeless campaign in Christchurch. We saw what she was doing and called her up and asked if she wanted help running her meetings and putting a structure in place for her organisation. We let them use our office space. We’re helping them get set up as an official organisation. These may seem like small things, but sometimes people don’t know how to do them. There are people trying to do incredible things, but they may have small barriers that stop them from doing what they want to do. How is it funded? The Ministry of Awesome has been incredibly lucky to get so much funding. The Canterbury Community Trust has backed us since our beginning. Kiwibank has been a great funder, and so has the city council.

ACTIVE: Kaila gives a presentation at the regular Coffee and Jam meeting. What about your “Coffee and Jam” meetings? Our meetings are extremely casual, but we now have about 80 people coming each week. And I’m fairly sure they’re not just coming for the free food. The purpose of the meetings is to help people connect with each other. We usually have someone pitch a new project or business in Christchurch, and then afterwards there’s an entrepreneurial educational speaker. How did you meet people like Vicki Buck and Sam Johnson? Sam I met through TEDx. But I think we’re all just like-minded

people. Christchurch is a very small place and once you start to tug on the thread that is Christchurch, you find out it’s connected to the entire city. What’s an average day in your life? If there is such a thing? A typical day would be lots of meetings. Something like the Ministry of Awesome is only successful because of the team behind it. It’s a lot of reaching out to random people, whether on Facebook or on the phone. We brought the former mayor of San Francisco down to Christchurch recently. How that happened was I Googled him, cold

called him from the white pages, first spoke to his wife on the phone, then convinced him to come here. How would you like to see the future of the city develop? My hope for Christchurch is that we realise the promise that emerged from the rubble. I don’t think that’s a promise of shiny new buildings, but of people who are creative, active, engaged, quirky, interesting, and diverse. We need that kind of reputation as a city. If someone is cutting edge, Christchurch should be the kind of place that welcomes them. Do you often travel back to the US? I do. I’m on the board of the cooking school my mother founded in New York. It’s the oldest natural foods cooking school in the US. It’s called the Natural Gourmet Institute and we have an accredited professional chef training programme. My family is back in the States which is another reason why I go back and forth so frequently. Are you a great cook? Actually, no, not really. I’m usually surrounded by so many people who are fantastic in the kitchen. I’m more of an “eatie,” than a “cookie.” What are your hobbies? I am a rock climber and a boxer. I used to be quite a serious boxer in around the year 2000. I had about eight fights and I was ranked second in the US in my category as an amateur. I also try to explore more of the South Island when I can.

•From page 1 “Pioneer was most upsetting, because it just seemed like the parks were a complete afterthought.” There are fifteen staff car parks which are closer to the centre than the front entrance disability parks, as well as designated bike and bus parking. City council recreation and sports unit manager John Filsell said there had been no written complaints about the location of the parks over the past year, although there had been complaints about people parking in them without permits. He said options for relocating or adding more parks had been reviewed since the issue was raised by the community board. “We have yet not been able to identify any practical solutions that would allow us to relocate the northern car parks closer to the entrance without significantly impacting traffic flows and facility operation.” But he said that locations for extra parks near the south entrance were being looked at. Dr Mautner said she was disappointed by the number of problems they found across the ward. “Even one bad car park is a disappointment. For people with disabilities, not being able to travel around freely has a real impact

on their lives.” Ms Potter said it made a simple trip to the shops an ordeal. “We met a women at the Centaurus Rd shops who said she had to back onto the pavement from the disabled car parks, because it was too frightening to go up on her wheelchair frontways. It was too steep and she was afraid she’d tip right over.” CCS Disability Action mobility parking and access adviser BJ Clark said there were similar problems across the city. “I applaud the community board for highlighting this issue because it’s one where we get a lot of complaints. We have tried media campaigns and we have tried working with the malls to find ways to monitor them, but it continues to be a huge issue. “Some people have no thought for their fellow man, and they don’t understand what it’s like to be a person with a disability.” He said the design of the parks was important. “Having kerb access is just as important as having the marked space.” The community board has asked for a city council report on car parks to be compiled, with options for fixing the problems. Once the report is finished, they plan to present it to the city council.

Bright idea in award contention BY GABRIELLE STUART

ROCKIN’: Year 8 Hillmorton High School students Chay Kaa-Luke, lead guitar; Jimmy Hemera, rhythm guitar; Ethan Moody, drums; and Dylan Knights, bass have formed a band, Lion’s Den. They’re just some of the year 7 and year 8 students who have taken advantage of expanded weekly music lessons this year, since the school became a composite school. The school took on more than 150 junior students in February after the closure of Branston, Linwood and Manning intermediate schools.

Library demolition begins Demolition of the Linwood Library on Cranley St began last week. The library has been closed since it was damaged in the February 2011 earthquake, and again by fire in 2012. It has been deemed uneconomic to repair. The demolition is expected to take three weeks, and will be completed next month. The temporary Linwood Library and Service Centre

will continue to operate in Eastgate Mall as the city council continues investigations into the future of the Cranley St site. City council community facilities rebuild unit manager Darren Moses said care would be taken to ensure the public was inconvenienced as little as possible while the building was being demolished. “We are aware that the library has been an eyesore since it was damaged by fire, so this is

a sign of progress for Linwood residents. While the temporary library in the mall remains popular with the community, the council will be continuing to look at how the service can be provided long-term in the area,” he said. The city council plans to hold an expression of interest process for parties interested in leasing the empty site on a short-to-medium term basis until the future of the site is decided.

When Pat and Nicola Martin started their Sydenham business Solar Bright, they had no qualifications, no experience, and limited funds. But they did have ideas and determination. Seven years later, they are finalists for a New Zealand Innovators Award for a potentially life-saving invention. Their “PATeye” sits on the road like a normal catseye reflector, but flashes with a blue light when there is ice on the road. It is already in use in car parks at The Hub Hornby and Westfield Riccarton, and is being tested by the NZTA for use on the roads. It is also being tested for use in Europe, Asia and the United States. “It is pretty exciting to be sitting in an office in Sydenham and having all this happening around us,” Mrs Martin said. The couple moved to New Zealand from the United Kingdom 13 years ago, with their one-year-old daughter. “At the time we said we’ll just travel New Zealand for a year, before she gets older. And we ended up staying here, to the disgust of our parents.” At the time Mrs Martin was working as a personal assistant, and her husband was working as on shop fit outs. “Neither of us have been to university or have any formal qualifications, but Pat has owned his own business since the age of 17 and I’ve always been entrepreneurial.” She said they wanted to put some of their ideas into action. “We’ve always been people who jump in with both feet and worry about the consequences later.”

BRIGHT SPARKS: Entrepreneurs and owners of Sydenham business Solar Bright, Pat and Nicola Martin. They have been named NZ Innovators Award finalists for their PATeye invention, which is designed to detect black ice.

She said they made a good team. “Pat doesn’t worry about anything, and I’m probably the other side where I worry a bit too much.” Since they started the business they have been responsible for several successful inventions, including the public solar charge table in the Re:Start mall. The winners of the New Zealand Innovators Awards will be announced in two weeks.

WORKSHOPS: Artists Against Slavery volunteers running community classes. They will lead a series of creative workshop in New Brighton next week.

Artists to help victims of slavery BY GABRIELLE STUART

Local artists hope to use their skills to help victims of human trafficking, through a series of creative workshops in Phillipstown next week. Janie Porter has mobilised a group of her friends and acquaintances, who will volunteer their skills to lead community workshops. They will teach everything from dance and sign language, to cake decorating and painting techniques. All the funds raised through the “Louder” workshops will go towards Hagar International Creative Arts and Recovery programmes in Cambodia and Vietnam. The programmes teach new skills to women and children who have been victims of slavery. Ms Porter said the group of friends had LOCATION charity, ADVERT.pdf 1 Against 1/05/2014 formed aNEW registered Artists Slavery.

“We’ve run art exhibitions in the past, but this will be the first time we’ve done anything like this.” She expected more than 100 people at the workshops this year, and hoped the workshops would become an annual event. “We’re starting small this year, but if all goes well we hope to expand it next year.” She said that all the costs of the workshops would be paid for through separate donations, so all the funds raised through the workshops would go to Hagar International. The workshops will be held from October 9 to October 11, at the Grace Vineyard City Campus on Ferry Rd. Workshops will also be held at the Grace Vineyard Beach Campus in New Brighton. More information on the workshops can be found at www.artistsagainstslavery.org. People cana.m. register for the workshops on the 11:51:35 website, or at either of the church sites.

Cold beer, hot food, good times

I

t’s hard to believe that this popular bar and restaurant at 280 Lincoln Road has only been open just over a year – it already has a reputation for a buzzing atmosphere, friendly staff and great food. Open for lunch, dinner, drinks or even just a coffee with friends, Morrell & Co was inspired by simple beginnings. It all started with a childhood love of homemade food such as meatballs – a Friday night favourite on the farm. Fast forward a few years, and the passion for terrific food – teamed up with a fairly healthy obsession of a cold beer and a good yarn with mates – makes it a great place to be. This simple trifecta became the essence of Morrell & Co: Cold beer, hot food, good

Fat Freeze machine gets results! The cryolipolysis (Fat Freeze) machine is so effective – you will be amazed by the results.

H

ow does the treatment work? With our treatment, we use a specially designed vacuum to gently draw up the skin area; the automated cooling handles then starts the treatment, which can be programmable, including treatment time. The great thing about this treatment, apart from that it’s simple and really effective, is that it’s designed to be a ‘lunchtime job’, where clients can return to normal activities right afterwards without discomfort and the only tell-tale signs being a flushed skin appearance (on the treated area) for a few hours.

WOW!

50% off first treatment

Research from the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery suggests a loss of 20 to 40 per cent for each treatment (where 20 per cent is the average). After a two-month wait, when you are ready for the next treatment, you can look forward to another 20 per cent and even more being lost. Sometimes one treatment is enough. The technology of using cold to decompose fat cells was pioneered by the president of the Pennsylvania University School of Medicine in America and has since gained FDA approval as well as European CE. Unlike other slimming technologies out there, this one is designed as an alternative to liposuction for areas of localised fat, for example, back rolls, muffin tops, love handles.

Q&A

Can I use this treatment?

Good candidates have bulges in certain areas they want to get rid of. This is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. The client should always consult with the practioner.

What can I do after the treatment?

Usually we have patients going back to work immediately after the session. Some patients experience redness, tingling or numbness in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. For others some bruising and discomfort may occur.

How long until I see results?

Visible changes occur as quickly as three weeks, while the most dramatic results show after two months. The body will continue to flush out fat cells along with its toxins up to four to six months after treatment.

After 60 days, 1 treatment

Are these changes here to stay, or will they disappear? The affected fat cells will be eliminated. As long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.

After 40 days, 1 treatment

Not suitable for people suffering from obesity, cardiac conditions or diabetes. Find Red Beauty at 336 Bealey Avenue. Phone 366 3414, or visit www.redbeauty.net.nz.

After 75 days, 1 treatment

ebecca Cragnolini believes that people do not need to suffer in silence, but can take control of their own wellbeing using some simple but effective techniques. Self Hypnosis and Neurolinguistic Programming is based on the understanding that we are unique and we have all the resources within us to make the changes in our lives and attitudes. However, sometimes we require someone to work alongside to bring out these strengths. That’s where Rebecca comes in. She has 18 years of experience working in health for the Canterbury District Health Board and National Health Service in England and her passion for hypnosis is founded in her own discovery of how easily and effectively changes can take place when using these approaches. The system she employs is a series of techniques designed to help people get positive and successful results. It is based on the understanding that within each of us is a wealth of resources which we barely use but once tapped can change our lives. Over

the years we can develop beliefs and habits that initially serve a purpose but now are unhelpful such as believing will never be able to lose weight, stop smoking, be calm in a plane. Techniques such as goal setting, relaxation and visualisation exercises bring about the change. Rebecca believes that when we know the changes have come from within us, we can have confidence they are sustainable and we are in control. While many of her clients see her individually, she also offers group sessions and is happy to go into workplaces or social groups to talk about what she does. This is a gentle, empowering, pain-free system that lets us make our own changes based on the way we naturally learn and develop habits and is paired with Rebecca’s consistent positive feedback and support. Some clients see a change after just one visit, some after ten or more. It is highly individual, and working with a practitioner like Rebecca will provide support throughout the journey.

Parishes forced to combine BY GABRIELLE STUART Burwood, North New Brighton, and New Brighton Anglican parishes plan to combine, because they are losing worshippers. Through the merger the combined parish will cover a large area along Pegasus Bay, stretching from Southshore to Spencerville. The name of the new parish has still to be decided. Burwood Anglican Parish warden Elizabeth Hanley said the church alone had lost about 20 per cent of its members since the earthquake. “We have got quite a few parishioners who have gone into rest homes, and others

who have moved to other suburbs.” She said that meant it wasn’t viable to run so many parishes. The combined parish will be formed in November. It will be centred on the All Saints Burwood site, because of its facilities and also because it has very little earthquake damage. St Mark’s at Marshland and St Luke’s (above), at South New Brighton will continue as worship centres, while St Faith’s New Brighton and St Andrew’s North New Brighton will continue their community focused ministries during the week. A Transitional Action Group has been formed

to work out the details of the merger, identifying the strengths of each parish, and coming up with a mission action plan for the new parish. Sunday service times are: 8.30am at All Saints 305 New Brighton Rd; 10am at All Saints and at St Luke’s 212 Pine Ave and on the first and third Sundays at 10am at St Mark’s 338 Prestons Rd. Family focused times: On the first Sunday of the month All Saints has a family service at 10am and St Luke’s has a Big Breakfast at the same time, where all are invited. On the fourth Sunday there is Messy Church, activities and scripture for all ages, at 4pm at All Saints. This is followed by a shared meal.

St Andrew’s defending champions

NO DEBATE ABOUT THAT: A St Andrew’s College debating team defended their title on September 19 at the Canterbury School Debating Competition final. Year 11 students April Oakley, Harrison Smith and Isabella Garbett were named the junior champions against Cashmere High School. The moot of the evening was “This house would sacrifice New Zealand’s outstanding natural landscape in order to generate clean energy and fight climate change” and the St Andrew’s team were affirmative.

Toy library struggling BY GABRIELLE STUART

The economic upturn in Hornby is causing one community resource to struggle. Many of the members of the volunteerrun Hornby Toy Library were lowerincome families. Many have moved away from the area since the earthquakes, due to rising rental prices. Toy library chairwoman Amanda Cosgrove said the library was struggling to find both members and volunteers. “We’ve lost some of our biggest market,

so we’re down to about 50 families regularly using the library. We do go through cycles as the children in some families outgrow the toys, and others come through, so it does come in waves. But we’d usually have at least 75 families.” However, she said the families signing up with the library were becoming more diverse. The toy library is currently based at Sockburn School, and is open on Thursdays from 5.30pm to 7pm and Saturdays from 9.30am to noon.

Trampoline troubles

BY MARK THOMAS – FIRE RISK MANAGEMENT OFFICER

Last Monday’s wild weather had fire crews zipping about to a variety of incidents including power lines down, roofing iron coming away, as occurred at the Court Theatre in Addington and at least three calls to runaway trampolines. I’m not sure if we were dealing with the same trampoline here but if we were it seriously needs a choke chain. One of these calls in Mairehau reported the trampoline stuck on the roof of a house although a later call in the same area had one lurching down the street. The final indignity for St Albans crew on arriving back at the station late in the afternoon was to find their entry denied by a fallen tree. More work. Another week of kitchen fires with an occupant of a house in Flay Crescent, Burnside suffering burns in trying to rectify the situation. I believe he was not seriously injured. An interesting point was the call last Thursday to a house in Innes Rd where a home sprinkler system had extinguished a cooking fire. Finally springtime also means duckling time. St Albans has already this week been called to rescue several of these from a drain in Normans Rd. It appears the entire brood was returned safely to mum.

Homeless ‘ghetto’ worry BY GABRIELLE STUART

A plan to build temporary accommodation for the homeless in New Brighton has sparked a mixed reaction from locals. The plans to build an accommodation village were outlined at a city council meeting by Help for the Homeless Christchurch founder Amy Burke. Some people are concerned the plans could create a ghetto. But New Brighton community groups all agree on one thing – that homelessness in the east is a problem. Just two weeks ago, Southshore residents found someone sleeping rough on the dunes. Volunteers at St Faith’s New Brighton hold a free community lunch each week. St Faith’s community development worker Mary McCammon said this winter they saw, on average, one new person each week who was homeless. “Every week we have people in here who are homeless or desperately looking for accommodation, or sleeping rough. It’s a huge problem.” But although she acknowledged the problem, she had concerns about the Help for the Homeless plan. The plan put to the city council was to build a village of separate units, with communal living spaces and gardens. The group initially hoped to build the village in Rawhiti

PROBLEM: Once abandoned houses are demolished, there are concerns homelessness will become worse as people squatting in them will have nowhere to go. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN But he believed the plan was well thought out. Ms McCammon agreed that more accommodation for the homeless was needed. But she was concerned about how that was done. “Some people who are homeless are homeless because of problems like drug addictions, and for some people it is purely financial, so I don’t know if lumping everyone together would be helpful.” She said it would be important it was well managed and well staffed. “It would have to be some place that offered hope to people rather than making them feel like they’ve ended up at the bottom of a heap. “You don’t need a lot of money for that but you need to be connected with community resources,

When the plans were posted on social media, Ms Burke was accused of creating a “ghetto”. Ms Burke did not respond for comment. Ward city councillor Glenn Livingstone has spoken with Ms Burke about the plan. He believed “ghettoisation” could be avoided if it was well designed. “If it’s not done well there is a concern. Any initiative like this needs to be done well and done right the first time.”

and have the right people behind it.” Burwood-Pegasus Community Board chairwoman Andrea Cummings said she did not know details of the plan. She was concerned that as earthquake-damaged houses in the area were demolished, the homeless would become more visible. “I’ve heard anecdotally that a lot of people have been sleeping in the abandoned houses, and obviously as they are demolished they’re going to need somewhere to go, and that’s going to add a lot of pressure.” A report from city council staff on possible locations for a hub has been requested. That is expected to be put to the city council in October.

ince the earthquakes turned our lives upside down, do you have days when everything is in the “too hard” basket? Do you have times when it’s hard to concentrate or prioritise all the things which need to be done and you just can’t seem to think straight however hard you try? Maybe you’ve joked about “quake-brain” or having a “senior moment” when you have struggled to remember something important, or perhaps you just can’t recall the last time you got a good night’s sleep. Earthquakes don’t just damage the built environment; they also tear apart the fabric of everyday life, quite literally turning the world upside down for those affected. Recovery isn’t just about repairing buildings and infrastructure, communities and lives need to be rebuilt too. We know from research that Cantabrians are weary, and that traumatic events like earthquakes - and dealing with their aftermath - take their toll on our minds and our bodies in many ways. New Zealand Red Cross have learned from international experience and created a series of training

Earthquakes don’t just damage the built environment; they also tear apart the fabric of everyday life, quite literally turning the world upside down for those affected. sessions for community groups and workplaces to help us understand the science of stress and give practical tips on how we can support each other through the recovery process. Community sessions are free – all you need to provide is the venue (the workplace sessions are charged at a cost.) So if you would like to learn more about how we respond to stress and how to cope with our natural reaction to an unnatural situation, why not book a free 45-minute training session for your community group?

Careless translation bites chicken exporter

he people who write advertising slogans are clever with words. They can make a simple frozen chicken hugely appealing. A clever wordsmith named Ed McCabe was paid a substantial fee to write these ten words. “It takes a strong man to make a tender chicken.” This slogan for Perdue Chickens helped sell 15 million frozen chickens through American supermarkets in one year. Yes, the chickens were top quality meat. But the Perdue export department got it wrong. They translated the slogan into Spanish as “It takes an aroused man to make a chicken affectionate”. Hispanic and Mexican cooks were not amused. Three points to ponder. • Clever writers can earn substantial fees. • Translating English into other languages has traps for the unwary. • Proofreaders who understand two languages are valuable people in exporting, document translating and book publishing. “We show all our writing students how to get their articles, stories, poems or instruction books published,” says Brian Morris, Principal

at New Zealand Institute of Business Studies. “They also get thoroughly proofread before being released.” Readers who are interested in writing or proofreading work at home should call 0800 801 994 and ask for the free report #805 When You Have A Passion For Story Telling. Whether your topic is food, electronics, cars, cooking, gardening, sport or business, there is satisfaction in getting your book written and published.

earn about ‘Antarctic Exploration in the Heroic Age’ at the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA), this term. This two-week course on Saturday morning introduces early Antarctic exploration and its link to New Zealand. “Pressing scientific questions demanded collaboration between different countries,” says course tutor Dr Ursula Rack. “Of greater public interest, however, was the touch of adventure. World War I brought Antarctic science to a halt, with the exception of the epic Endurance expedition, led by Ernest Shackleton, in which a New Zealand captain played a crucial part.” ‘Antarctic Exploration in the Heroic Age’ is one of several Saturday seminars at the WEA in October-November. Everyone is welcome to attend the courses, seminars and activity groups at the WEA which has been offering adult education in the city since 1915. The full list of courses on offer in October-November can be seen in our programme. ‘Ireland in the 21st Century’ is a Saturday afternoon seminar which critically examines the northern ‘settlement’, the southern economy and likely outcomes over the next decade. “The 21st century began with, officially at least, a great deal of promise,” says course tutor Dr Philip Ferguson. “Thirty years of armed conflict in the north came to an apparent end and the south of Ireland appeared to be entering a period of dynamic economic growth. By the end of the first decade of the century, however, things were less bright.” Two further Saturday afternoon seminars look at recent history in Iraq, post 2003, and

ItalianStyleCuisine A fresh new menu makes Little Italy Restaurant in Bishopdale a must to visit. Occupying the front section of Farringtons Tavern, Little Italy Italian restaurant is a casual and charming eatery where you can relax and sample the best of Italian cuisine without travelling to Europe! First impression when you enter the restaurant is that you've walked into a Mediterranean café. It possesses a European rustic charm with gingham table clothes and picture windows complete with planted window boxes that look out on Italian landscapes. "Our new menu has an excellent range of delicious meals to suit everyone as well as a kiddies menu and a takeaway Pizza menu," said Mark Pearce, co-owner. Included on the menu is a huge selection of the expected traditional pasta and pizza dishes through to some interesting Italian flavour-infused mains. "Our Pork Belly Parmigiana Stack looks spectacular and is delicious. We slow cook the Pork Belly overnight making it so tender that it melts in your mouth. The pork is then served on a Buttery Mash with warm crisped Cabbage, Apple and Parsnip Puree, and finished with a Chunky Napoli Sauce and Mozzarella, "

FARRINGTONS TAVERN & LITTLE ITALY RESTAURANT is located at 119 Farrington Ave, Bishopdale. Phone 359 2930. Little Italy Restaurant is open daily from 11.30am to 9.30pm with no surcharge fee on Public Holidays. For more info go to www.littleitaly.co.nz or find them on facebook.

Kids 2-course special

with a Kiwi twist

said Mark. Another stand out main is their Pistachio Fettuccine - Pan seared Chicken is cooked in a white wine and cream sauce, tossed with a Pistachio Nut/Baby Spinach/Feta Pesto, and finished with fresh Parmesan. "Another spectacular looking dish is our Portobello Stack entree". Portobello Mushrooms are stuffed with Basil Pesto and Parmesan Cheese and finished with a roast Capsicum sauce. Little Italy is part of Farringtons Tavern and is open daily from 11.30am. With it's Italian concept theming, Little Italy is an ideal venue for private functions. It can comfortably accommodate parties of up to 70 people with catering to suit any budget and offers the perfect choice for your end of year work party. Mark and the team are happy to discuss options on 359 2930.
