THAT’S ODD IT SEEMS even Santa isn’t entitled to special parking privileges after a traffic warden slapped a parking ticket on his sleigh. And now Father Christmas and his little helpers face coughing up £35 – or double that if they don’t pay promptly. The bah humbug howler happened as Chris Uttley was towing the Hinckley Round Table sleigh in Leicestershire, England. He stopped the sleigh for 30sec on a zig-zag line. “I was just transferring some collection tins from my car to the sleigh when she pounced,’’ Mr Uttley said. “I explained the circumstances, only to be told nothing could be done. I thought it was very heartless. I found the warden was very smug. “Santa was absolutely shocked,” said Chris. “He said the warden should be put on the naughty list and get a lump of coal for Christmas.”

SYDNEY SIEGE AFTERMATH

Shots fired . . . no option Mike Kyne was part of the anti-terrorist squad which tracked and shot Aramoana killer David Gray. He gives reporter Tom Doudney a unique insight into how the Sydney siege would have played out MIKE KYNE knows what it’s like to go up against a dangerous killer while innocent people are in the firing line. Like in Aramoana, there was no shortage of armed police on the scene, as Sydney’s hostage drama developed at the Lindt Chocolate Café in Martin Pl on Monday. The gunman, Haron Monis, was killed in the siege along with two of his 20 captives. They were 34-yearold café manager Tori Johnson, who reportedly tried to tackle Monis, and 38-year-old mother-ofthree Katrina Dawson, who reportedly spent much of her time trying to help a pregnant colleague and was shot trying to defend her. Mr Kyne says the situation would have been dictated much more by the actions of Monis than the police outside. The police response would be more reactive with the first move being to cordon off and contain the situation. “You don’t want a moving offender in a vehicle or something, so you want to isolate the incident away from the population so there is less risk to others,” he said. “Let’s say it was Merivale Mall – let’s say someone walks in with a gun and takes 10 people hostage in the shop. Right from the start, police negotiators would be trying to talk to the person, find out what they want, police have also got to get everyone else out of the mall. All that is taking place and then the specialist negotiator would take over and the special tactics team would get into place in case they needed to assault the place.” Mr Kyne said the preferred option for police would be to resolve the situation peacefully but a deci-

WHAT TO DO IN A HOSTAGE SITUATION •Be patient and try not to stress out. Don’t expect people to come running to your aid straight away. Remember that although you may feel alone, there will be people outside of the situation working to try and resolve it on your behalf but it will take time. •Be compliant. Obey any instructions that are given as far as you can. If you are told to put your hands on your head or on the floor, for example, do so. •Keep quiet, try and become invisible – don’t look like a threat to the offender. •Don’t try and look the offender in the eye. The natural instinct is to do that but try and look away, instead, so that you are less likely to attract their attention. •Quietly record in your mind those events you think are going to be useful afterwards.

SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE: Former policeman and anti-terrorist squad member Mike Kyne, who was part of the team which shot David Gray at Aramoana (inset), says the siege in Sydney would have been dictated more by the actions of hostage taker Haron Monis than police.

es’ survival instincts would probably have been working overtime to make sure they didn’t antagonise Monis, although in some cases people could behave impulsively. “If you look through history some hostages have done some silly things really with an offender but they have got away with it. There is no logic really to survival instincts – it’s instinctive behaviour.” The hostages would also have been thinking of how they could get out of the situation and with only one gunman looking after all them, it was not surprising that five had managed to escape before the final stand-off. “I bet you a lot of the hostages [who escaped] will say ‘the door was open, his back was turned and I ran’.” Christchurch-based Mr Kyne, who now advises companies on dispute resolution and risk management, said he was often in the business of advising bank tellers and other professionals to try and avoid confrontation and not take any unnecessary risks during a hostage situation.

but to move in However, it was difficult to assess the actions of Tori Johnson without knowing exactly what had happened and how desperate the situation was. “He may have thought his only choice was to try and take him on and if that was the only choice he felt he had, then good on him. “You can’t say it was the wrong decision because we were not there but if that has cost him his life, that is a damn shame. “The other thing you are going to be wary of if you are going to have a go is that putting your own life in danger is one thing but you don’t want to live with the consequences of someone else being fatally injured as a result of the action you took.” Mr Kyne said the Sydney siege showed how at any time, almost anybody could be vulnerable to being targeted by someone with extremist views, or who had lost common sense, and was committed to making a statement using an act of violence. “The classic one we have had here in the last six months was the Ashburton Work and Income shooting (September 1),” Mr Kyne said.

TAKING HER CHANCE: A hostage runs to armed tactical response police officers for safety after she escaped from the Lindt café during the siege. “There is really no difference so now? Because you could have except that he ran away and got been out having coffee just like caught later but we could have anybody else.” faced the same hostage situation Mr Kyne said he was in confidown there.” dent in the ability of New Zealand He said the basic elements to police to respond to hostage situhostage taking situations had not ations. changed over the years, with the “We certainly hold our own and, main motivators being either to in fact, we are very well advanced use people as a bargaining chip or with those sort of tactics.

Past experiences influence actions HOW WE react to dangerous situations such as being taken hostage is influenced by our past experiences, Canterbury University associate professor of psychology Martin Dorahy says. Professor Dorahy (right) said people’s biological wiring affected whether they chose to run, fight or freeze. “People who have been quite distressed or traumatised, often early on in their life, will tend to freeze and collapse, whereas people who have had more supportive early experiences are likely to be able to keep their thinking

alive and therefore can assess the situation relatively quickly and can determine whether it’s going to be appropriate to fight, or to flee.” Professor Dorahy said being able to remain calm and think things through would usually boost a person’s chances in a survival situation. However, there were sometimes occasions where it could result in a worse outcome. “If you are thinking and trying to strategise something you might miss an opportunity to just flee so if you just

go purely with your emotions it can occasionally be helpful.” Professor Dorahy said the actions of Katrina Dawson, killed defending a pregnant colleague in the cafe could have been shaped by her experiences as a mother of three children. These instincts would have initially helped her get through the situation by focusing her attention on supporting someone else, which she reportedly did by looking after her colleague throughout the drama. However, these same instincts would also have distracted her from her own well-being.

Old foes on cricket pitch meet again By Grace Cabell

FORTY-ONE years ago a young Richard Hadlee played against Allan Kerr in a club cricket match at Lancaster Park. Yesterday they met again for the first time since the match when Sir Richard was invited as a surprise guest at Mr Allan’s retirement party at Sockburn School. Mr Kerr has been a teacher at the school for 36 years. He was “blown away” by Sir Richard’s visit. “I can’t believe it. Cricket has been my passion since I was a kid, it’s been my life,” he said. Sir Richard was invited to the farewell by the school’s board of trustees and had said he would love to attend. The pair caught up about the game 41 years ago and shared stories about their cricketing pasts. “I was that tearaway, annoying fast bowler,” said Sir Richard. Mr Kerr was a useful cricketer in his day too, playing for the New Zealand under-20 team. Mr Kerr kept playing cricket until he was about 50. “When you play sport you don’t want to stop playing the game, it’s the

same with teaching, isn’t it,” he said. “When I first got here it was all children from the Wigram airbase who were brought up in the air force environment – the kids are very different now,” he said. He said he would continue to teach but only part-time. “I decided a few years ago that when I turned 60 I would stop fulltime teaching and I had my 60th birthday this year.” He said he had mixed emotions about leaving the school but looked forward to travelling with his wife upon his retirement.

Hospital takes shape

Burwood Hospital’s massive redevelopment is nearing the halfway mark. Murray Cleverley, Canterbury District Health Board chairman and spokesman for the Hospitals Redevelopment Partnership Group, said work is on track for this major project, which began construction at the beginning of this year. “It’s really exciting to see things progress and the buildings start to take shape – it’s great to see it all coming together,” he said. The 30,000 sq m redevelopment will be able to accommodate 230 inpatients and manage 80,000 outpatient visits each year. It will include an extended radiology department, a new outpatient department, a new main entrance and a new back of house area. Mr Cleverley said more than $650 million of government funding is being spent in total on the redevelopment of Burwood and Christchurch hospitals – the largest health-building project in New Zealand’s history. Buildings have been demolished to make way for the new facility, which will rest on special earthquake foundations. New car parks have also been constructed, along with a temporary main entrance. The latest images show one of the three three-storey ward blocks – as it is now and an artist’s impression of how it will look when it is finished. Windows, sliding doors and sun louvres are among the features that are yet to be added.

Missing French tourist POLICE HAVE released photos of the missing French tourist they have named as Celine Vitrioul. Ms Vitrioul (right) is unaccounted for in the Arthurs Pass region. Two photos taken by Canadian tourist Genevieve Forcier as she hiked on route 12 in Arthurs Pass, and by a family Vitrioul stayed with in the North Island were yesterday released by police. Ms Forcier is believed to be the last person to have seen Ms Vitrioul. She was due to pick up a sleeping bag at a backpackers lodge on December 11. The Department of Conservation reported a French tramper was two days late returning from a tramp on Cass Saddle. Ms Vitrioul was believed to have left a note with her sleeping bag on December 8 at Arthurs Pass Backpackers. She said she planned to tramp the Cass Saddle and expected to return in three days to pick it up. She has not returned to collect it. Police want Ms Vitrioul or anyone who knows where she is, or has seen her, to phone on 363 7670 or the anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111.

Careful where you swim By Emma-Jane McLennan

SWIMMING IN sewage this summer will make you sick – and many swimming spots in Canterbury are contaminated with it. The region is home to more “very poor” quality swimming spots than anywhere else recorded in New Zealand. Canterbury has 15 “very poor” water quality sites, while Auckland has four that are unsafe for swimming, and the east coast of the North Island has one. Wellington has 10 “poor” quality sites, compared to Canterbury’s nine, but no “very poor” swimming spots. Canterbury is also home to 18 “fair” quality swimming sites, 41 “good” ones, 15 “very good” ones and four which had insufficient test results. The main reason for poor water quality is both human and animal faecal discharge entering the water, according to Environment Canterbury’s website. This could come from human sewage, urban or industrial storm water run-off, discharges from farming or the presence of wild bird colonies The major health risk with swimming arises from ingesting disease-causing microorganisms through the mouth, nose and ears.

Scooter ‘flasher’ not quick enough By Tom Doudney

POLICE CORDONED off parts of Rolleston in the early hours of Sunday morning to catch a man alleged to have exposed himself to women while riding his scooter on three separate occasions. The man, a resident of the Rolleston area, has been charged with indecent exposure. He was arrested after police received a call from two women who said they had just been flashed by him. Sergeant Franco Lovrich said the suspected offender was stopped on his scooter at a police cordon on Rolleston Drive and did not resist arrest.

Xmas party gives kids a lift By Bridget Rutherford

CHILDREN suffering from cancer had something to smile about on Saturday when they attended their annual Charlotte Smulders Christmas party. The event, which was organised and funded by the Smulders Family Charitable Trust, saw more than 200 people gather at Selwyn House school for three hours of carnival-themed fun. Charlotte and Pier Smulders are the owners of The Christchurch Star Company. Some of the fun included a merry-go-round, a bouncy castle, face painting, a visit from Santa and a number of different activities. Santa arrived on a YikeBike and gave presents to all of the children who attended. It was the fourth year Mrs Smulders had organised the event after she took over from the late Diana and Robbie Robinson who had run the parties for more than 20 years.

Bain’s compensation Dagg ties the knot bid goes back to court with high school DAVID BAIN’S legal team has been in confidential discussions with the Minister of Justice over his bid for compensation. A judicial settlement conference was held at the High Court at Auckland, on Monday in relation to the redress Mr Bain (right) is seeking after spending 13 years behind bars for the murder of his family in 1995. Mr Bain was later acquitted at a retrial the New Zealand Herald reported. The meeting between Mr Bain’s legal team, including Michael Reed QC and former All Black Joe Karam, and lawyers representing Justice Minister Amy Adams, was held ‘in chambers’, meaning media could not report on proceedings. Media were also barred from sitting in on the conference, held before Justice John Faire. Mr Bain’s representatives remained tight-lipped after the meeting, declining to comment on what happened or reveal anything that was discussed. Long-time Bain supporter Mr Karam told the New Zealand Herald: “Judicial settlement conferences, by their nature, are completely confidential, so apart from saying I was there, I can’t

say anything else.” Mr Reed QC, confirmed the meeting was “completely private”, and he was “not permitted to say anything”. The compensation bid has hit a number of obstacles since Mr Bain first asked for redress from the Government in 2010. An independent report into his case by retired Canadian judge, Justice Ian Binnie, ruled Mr Bain was innocent “on the balance of probabilities”, and ordered him to be paid compensation for spending more than a decade in prison. However, this was questioned by then Justice Minister Judith Collins, who ordered a review of the report by High Court Judge Robert Fisher, who concluded it “would be unsafe to act upon the Binnie report”. In January 2013, Mr Bain filed for a judicial review of Ms Collins’ decision. Mr Bain was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in 1995 for murdering his parents, two sisters and brother at their Dunedin home, but was acquitted at retrial in 2009. Earlier this year he married

Christchurch primary school teacher Liz Davies in a private ceremony. The couple welcomed their first child, a baby boy, at the beginning of December. Mr Bain’s legal team will be back in court in February. David Bain’s life: • 1994 – David Bain’s parents, two sisters and brother are shot and killed in their Dunedin home. • 1995 – Jury finds Bain guilty of murdering his family. He is sentenced to a mandatory life term. • 1995 – Court of Appeal dismisses appeal. • 2007 – Five-day Privy Council hearing in London begins. It orders a retrial. • 2009 – Bain is found not guilty on five counts of murder, following a retrial. • 2010 – Bain asks the Government for compensation for 13 years in prison. • 2012 – Justice Minister Judith Collins rejects Justice Binnie’s report after Robert Fisher, QC found a number of alleged errors. • January 10, 2014 – Bain marries Liz Davies in a private ceremony at a Christchurch vineyard. • June 2014 – The couple announce they are expecting their first child. • December 2014 – Liz Davies gives birth to a boy.

sweetheart

CRUSADER AND All Black Israel Dagg has wed his high school sweetheart Daisy Aitken on Friday. The wedding was held at Mana Lodge in the Poukawa Valley, Hawke’s Bay, a country estate owned by the late Sir Paul Holmes. Guests were ordered to meet at Dagg’s former secondary school, Lindisfarne College in Hastings, from where they caught buses to the lodge. Even the guests didn’t know where they were going. The couple are originally from Hawke’s Bay. Dagg’s grandfather, Pat, told the Herald on Sunday more than 100 attended the wedding with famous faces including teammates Victor Vito and Cory Jane. “He’s got a big family, Izzy, so they were all there, his mum and his dad of course, sisters and brothers. “It was a family affair pretty much, scattered with a few All Blacks.” Daisy wore a traditional wedding dress. “She looked lovely, of course - she looks lovely at any time.” Vows were exchanged on the estate’s grand lawn next to the swimming pool and the reception took place in a marquee nearby. “They were just starting the dancing and merriment when I went home,” Pat said.

Daisy Aitken and Israel Dagg “But I imagine they went to midnight or 1 o’clock.” Dagg’s high school friend Conrad Reiter was best man. Meanwhile, Air New Zealand has issued a warning to a flight attendant after allegations she gave Dagg a lap dance during an alcohol-fuelled flight from the United States. The incident allegedly involved Dagg being “straddled” by the off-duty female attendant, according to a source who said there has been a string of drunken and “silly” episodes involving younger staff. Seven off-duty cabin crew were investigated following the flight from Los Angeles two weeks ago, which brought the All Blacks home from their northern hemisphere tour, Fairfax Media reported.

The Big Question

New Zealanders are less likely to vote for a political party if the leader is too old, has different religious beliefs or is homosexual, a Research New Zealand survey has found. Reporter Gabrielle Stuart gets reaction. The results of the Research New Zealand survey, which polled 501 people by phone: ■■ What attributes of a political party leader would make you less likely to vote for that party? • 59 per cent – more than 75-years-old • 41 per cent – strong religious beliefs (different to

Danny Osborne – University of Auckland political psychology lecturer: The attributes of a leader play a huge role in whether or not people vote for them. Research shows that people aren’t always knowledgeable about the actual policies of a party, so they will often base their votes on personal attributes which they believe represent policies. Sometimes it is a subtle influence. There has been research showing the physical attributes of a candidate can influence whether they win an election, for instance in one of our projects we asked people in the US to judge our political leaders from a photo, and the results showed that their perceptions of competence predicted who won the majority of the seats in the last election, just based on a snap judgement of appearance. I think so there is this norm of equality which has developed which means people often aren’t willing to say those things will influence their voting choices, but there are more subtle ways of seeing that those prejudices are influencing their votes. That also explains why people say they vote based on policies, but when you look at their voting choices they’re often explicitly opposed to the policies they said they would support.

yours) • 34 per cent – an immigrant to New Zealand • 32 per cent – strong links to a union • 20 per cent – homosexual • 8 per cent – of a different ethnicity to you • 3 per cent – a woman

Emanuel Kalafatelis – Research New Zealand director: The results that surprised me were relating to the extent that people would accept a leader who was gay. I through that was a good result overall. Seventy-five was quite a random age and on reflection I think we should have probably gone for a lower age, but what was driving that one was Winston Peters. He has had aspirations to be leader and is getting on in age. (The results around ethnicity) reflect the diversity of New Zealand really. I would have hoped that people would be a little more open-minded, but when this poll was done there was a lot of information out there about terrorism and I think that drove some of the results. And as a general trend we found that female New Zealanders are more open or liberal minded than males, and the further south you move through the country people are more conservative.

Terry King – Grey Power president: You need to look at the people who vote, and you’ll find that people in the older age group are more likely to vote. I think that neutralises any general viewpoint in relation to age, because a lot of young people aren’t interested in politics, but a lot of older people do turn out to vote. As the population ages I think it is a very good and healthy thing to have older politicians in Parliament. Providing older leaders can relate to all age groups there is no issue with that. I am aware of mayors around the country who are older. You only need to look at Tim Shadbolt (aged 67), he has returned every term and is doing very well. I don’t think age works against someone, in fact it should work in someone’s favour. Rawa Karetai – Rainbow Wellington chairman: It is not surprising that the numbers (of people who would not vote for a party with a gay leader) are as high as they are. It is sad that we still do have prejudices but it does show that we are moving toward a progressive and fair society. There have been changes to human rights in the last 20 to 30 years, and that is reflected in that it is becoming less of an issue. But the questions over whether Grant Robertson should be leader brought this issue up for us, and it was concerning and disappointing that those questions were asked because it doesn’t define him and his ability to lead. We understand that there are still prejudices in the community, and it does take time to change. The numbers are about on par with what we understand in the community at the moment, but that is still higher than we would expect, and we hope that numbers will drop.

Political leader attributes

Ricky Thomas, decorator, of Hornby: “I look at the leader first and foremost, but as long and they’re straight up and honest it’s more about who they are than what they are.”

Eveleen Hornbrook, retired, of Hei Hei: “You shouldn’t have to know these things, about what church they go to or what they think about those sorts of things. That stuff should be personal, even for politicians.”

Rochelle Bachelor, mother, of Addington: “It doesn’t bother me. Everyone has a choice and you shouldn’t judge people by their lifestyles, because it doesn’t change their policies.”

Mic Davies, storeman, of Shirley: “It wouldn’t really change things for me, because it’s more about how the person comes across. I’d vote for a leader who was clear about the party’s policies and what they want.”

Rodney Blee, retired, of Broomfield: “In 50 years time I would still vote for the same party, and there hasn’t been a politician yet who has put me off. I’m a Tory through and through and you couldn’t change me.”

Ronald Fisher, retired, of Upper Riccarton: “I vote for a party as a whole. My mother and father were Labour, so I have followed in their footsteps and kept backing Labour, no matter what their leader is. I never listen to the debates anyway, to be honest.”

Hugh Polaschek, retired, of Halswell: “The reason I wouldn’t vote for Labour is that they would work with the Greens, it has nothing to do with the leader. I wouldn’t be happy if they tried to do things like shove religion down my throat, but if they keep it to themselves I have no problem with what they do or believe.”

Marilyn Samson, unemployed, of Dunsandel: “I always vote for the Labour Party and I don’t know if there’s anything that would change that. I wouldn’t vote for them if they were racist or something like that, but I don’t care about any personal stuff. I just vote for them because they’re sensible and understand normal people.”

Do sunscreens stop you from Summer is here so it’s time to slip, slop, slap and wrap. But can you trust your sunscreen’s UV protection claims? Emma-Jane McLennan reports SUN AND sand at Taylors Mistake seemed the perfect way to spend a Monday afternoon this week for friends Jess Wright, Gemma Hutchings and Violet McLellan. The three were in too much of a hurry to grab the sunscreen on the way, but would normally use highprotection SPF 50+, Ms Wright said. “I usually just go for the cheapest brand.” Ms McLellan agreed. “Yes, like Banana Boat!” Ms Hutchings admitted that she didn’t usually use sunscreen: “I don’t usually get burnt,” she said, looking down at her shoulders. But harsh New Zealand sun has made the country home to the highest rate of melanoma skin cancer in the world. You already know the basic reason for sunburn: When your skin is exposed to the sun for a period of time, eventually it burns, turning red and irritated. But under the skin, things get a little more complicated: The sun gives off three wavelengths of ultraviolet light: UVA, UVB and UVC. UVC light doesn’t reach the earth’s surface. The other two types of ultraviolet light not only reach your beach towel, but they penetrate your skin. Skin damage is caused by both UVA and UVB rays. Sun protection factor measures a sunscreen’s protection against sunburn caused mainly by UVB radiation. Broad-spectrum sunscreens protect against both UVB and UVA rays – the latter is the unseen factor that plays havoc with your DNA.

TANNING: Jess Wright, Gemma Hutchings and Violet McLellan at Taylors Mistake on Monday. Choosing the right sunscreen will help prevent burning. The four products are deemed ‘worth considering’ by Consumer NZ. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN SUN SAFETY TIPS • Look for sunscreens with an SPF 30+, plus water resistance and broad-spectrum protection • Apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before going out into the sun • Apply plenty of sunscreen, using about 35ml for a full-body application • Mopping up sweat or towelling will reduce sun protection: Apply again straight away • Cover up with clothing • Try to avoid the sun between 10am-4pm UVA rays can prematurely age your skin, causing wrinkles and age spots. But they don’t redden the skin like UVB does, so SPF tests tell you little about the UVA damage you could be getting.

Ultraviolet light can alter your DNA, contributing to skin cancers, including deadly melanoma. A Cancer Society of New Zealand spokeswoman said that although most Kiwis are getting into

the habit of good sun smart behaviours, outdoor lifestyles and tanning are big risk factors. “New Zealand has very high levels of UV which impact on our outdoor lifestyle especially over the

summer months. Tanning is a sign of sun damaged skin which is not the best look as you get older. Being sensible and remembering to be sun smart help to reduce the risk of skin cancer later in life.”

Sunscreen

burning? Sunscreen is one of the best ways to combat sun damage, but a concerning new research report from Consumer NZ has thrown doubt on some brands’ sun protection claims. The organisation recently measured the SPF and broad-spectrum protection of 12 sunscreens – and said it was concerned with the findings. Seven products didn’t meet the SPF claim on their label and two failed their broad-spectrum claims, while others were given “partial passes.” However, most manufacturers have been able to supply test evidence that their product meets its SPF label claim, with one re-testing in the same laboratory but with a different result. “Our testing has raised concerns about the variability of sunscreen testing laboratories. This needs to be investigated by Medsafe,” it was written in the report. Aloe Up was one of the sunscreens that received a bad rap. As a result the distributor voluntarily recalled the batch number (in spite of their own in-vivo testing to support its label claim) and all but six tubes were removed from sale. Since then, Aloe Up has retested the same batch at their test lab, AMA Labs, using a five-subject test. These results mean Consumer

READY FOR SUMMER: Make sure you are sun safe before hitting the beach.

DEADLY: If you have spots like this one, get it checked out. MELANOMA FACTS • New Zealand and Australia have the highest melanoma incidence rates in the world • Melanoma is the fourth most common cancer in New Zealand, with more than 4000 cases a year • In 2008 317 people died from melanoma in New Zealand – 202 men and 115 women • 70 per cent of melanoma cases occur in those 50 years and older • Melanoma is reasonably common in younger age groups. Significant numbers of men and women between the ages of 25 and 44 get melanoma. 30 per cent of cases occur in those younger than 50 years • Melanoma rarely occurs in children • Death rates are higher among men and appear to be increasing • Melanomas are usually black or brown but can also be skincoloured, pink, red, purple, blue or white • If detected early they are almost always curable NZ is satisfied that Aloe Up will meet its label claim. Now Consumer NZ is campaigning for the Government to start ‘testing the testers’: “Our testing has highlighted major issues in sunscreen testing. For consumers to have faith in sunscreen products, health authorities need to deal with this issue,” it wrote. Consumer NZ also plans to test sunscreens again next year, in time for summer. The problem is, New Zealand has an unregulated sunscreen market which is why the products are classed as cosmetics, the Cancer Society spokeswoman said. “Regulating the market would certainly help this process to change from cosmetic to therapeutic.” A spokeswoman for the Environmental Protection Authority

said sunscreen’s classification as a cosmetic means it is tested for hazardous substances, not incorrect SPF claims. “[It] imposes rules and conditions on them to ensure that they are safe for use.” But whether or not a sunscreen lives up to it’s claims can only be found through voluntary Australia and New Zealand Standard testing (AS/NZS 2604). Kiwi companies are encouraged to meet the standards, but products that meet other standards such as those in the European Union or United States are also permitted. Even sunscreens that meet no standard at all can legally be sold here. In Australia sunscreens are regulated as therapeutic products and are required to meet the Australian and New Zealand standard for sun-

screen products. In 2012 the prime ministers of Australia and New Zealand announced their intentions to set up a new agency, which would mean all Kiwi sunscreens would be required to meet the standard. The Consumer NZ report read: “Disappointingly, last month the two Governments announced they’ve stopped trying to establish a joint agency. Our Government says it will upgrade New Zealand’s therapeutic products regulation – and we think making sunscreens a therapeutic product is now a priority.” So what sunscreens should you use? Just four products in the Consumer NZ test were deemed “worth considering.” They were the Cancer Society Kids Pure SPF 50+, Nivea Sun Kids

Pure & Sensitive SPF 50+, Banana Boat Kids Spray SPF+ and Kiwiscreen Kids SPF 50+. They were top-ranked because of their “very high” SPF and broad-spectrum protection, and also because they were the cheapest products testedmeaning you won’t have to stint on sunscreen. The Cancer Society spokeswoman said the main thing is to remember that sunscreen is all about application and re-applying for it to be effective to achieve the level of SPF as stated on the label. “This will help reduce the risk of skin cancer and sunscreen is to be used with other sun smart behaviours. Sunscreen should be used in conjunction with the rest of the sun smart measures and not used alone if at all possible.” •For more information go to sunsmart.org.nz

Hillary’s pilot on South Pole expedition dies By Kyle Knowles

of the air force museum when it was being built. After the Antarctic exhibition he was posted in Washington D.C. for three years as Air Attaché. In 1963 he was an honorary aide-decamp or assistant in the field to GovernorGeneral Brigadier Sir Bernard Fergusson, a role Mr Claydon held for a year. In 1965 Mr Claydon retired from the air force and continued to help Sir Edmund with his work in Nepal. His brother, Arthur, also served in the air force in World War 2. He died in 1996. Mr Claydon’s funeral is being held at St Marks Chapel at the former Wigram Air Force Base tomorrow at 11am.

THE CHIEF pilot on Sir Edmund Hillary’s expedition to the South Pole has died in Christchurch. Wing Commander John Claydon, 97, died on Monday after living a full life that included flying in World War 2, being part of Sir Edmund’s Commonwealth TransAntarctic Expedition to Antarctica and training new pilots in the air force. Mr Claydon was one of the first members of the New Zealand Permanent Air Force which later became the Royal New Zealand Air Force in 1937. He was first a fitter and later became a pilot. He had three tours of the Pacific during World War 2. Before enlisting in the air force he served in the New Zealand Army between 1934 and 1936. He received the Air Force Cross and the Polar Medal for his role as the squadron leader and chief pilot in the expedition to the South Pole between 1955 and 1958. That Antarctic voyage was lead by Sir Edmund and they were the first people to reach the South Pole over land since Robert Scott in 1912. He was formerly the commanding officer of Wigram’s Flying Training Wing as well as being the John Claydon and the RNZAF Antarctica flight’s Auster Mark 7 during the trans-Antarctic expedition in 1956. chairman of the friends

Deep foundations make building earthquake safe By Tom Doudney

A FIVE-STOREY building touted by its makers as potentially the safest in Christchurch will be more below the ground than above it due to the size of its foundations. Work on the $50 million Awly building in Durham St, opposite the Canterbury Provincial Council Buildings, began in September 2013 and is scheduled to wrap up in April. Built by Arrow International, the building is 26m tall but its foundations extend to 35m below ground level. It features 83 piles, each 1.2m in diameter with an average depth of 35m below ground level. If placed end to end, the piles would measure 3km – nine times the height of Auckland’s Sky Tower. The building will also be sitting on 72 base isolators. In an earthquake it is designed to slide 5m each way and then move back into place. Arrow International Christchurch director Andrew McKenzie said base isolators were recognised as one of the best options for earthquake strengthening as the building was able to move on the isolators. “It used to be quite rare to see this system used in New Zealand as it was a method used mainly on key Government buildings like Te Papa, Parliament buildings and the Wellington Hospital,” Mr McKenzie said. “Historically we haven’t often seen this system used in private projects because of the cost, but the owners, the Yeo family, were adamant that their design team came up with a building that is as strong and as earthquake-proof as they can achieve in New Zealand.” The building also features 1143

Merrier motorists as petrol prices drop By Tom Doudney

MOTORISTS HAVE got an early Christmas present as petrol prices have continued to fall at the pump. Petrol prices are now well below $2 a litre for unleaded fuel. Wigram resident Shontelle Mills said she budgeted carefully, so she had noticed the drop. “I try to use [my car] as little as I can. I would use it for shopping, taking my child out to pre-school, that kind of stuff,” she said. Her son’s pre-school was in Prebbleton, so she had to make two long return trips each weekday.

▌READERS’ ▌ LETTER

Tilford St residents Lisa Clement and Murray Davidson respond to an article in last Wednesday’s Star where it was revealed that the street was the source of most noise complaints in Christchurch. We do live in Tilford St and have done so for about eight years. I have always thought our street to be a beautiful street full of colour and vibrant people ranging from all different ages. I cannot dispute the complaints to the council. We have extremely talented people in our street who have different tastes in music to most of us. I will point out that yes they might be loud they do stop at a semi-reasonable hour. From memory this happens at best once a year. We also have the Woolston Club rocking out big time, when the doors are open the street can hear. We do have noisy parties too

sometimes, we have cars racing up our street, but not that many are that game due to the round bumps and our street having so many dips. Don’t you think this might be your street? Parties, cars and domestic arguments? Whether it be Fendalton, Merivale, Papanui, Rolleston. It’s called suburbia. I do find it quite sad that we are being judged on a few people who make complaints and who probably are the kind to pick up a phone rather than make the effort to talk/ communicate with the people who are bothering them. You mentioned a lady being scared of speaking out, because she might get a brick through her window, not all people think like that, and are her neighbours really that bad? This sort of thing tarnishes a street reputation. Woolston is a great place to live in. Living in Tilford St, is a pleasure. I think more people need to stand up and actually start to be proud of where you choose to live. Be respectful.

Eight-legged creepy-crawlies have fear of ants ARACHNOPHOBES rejoice – new research shows the critters you fear the most have their own phobias. A Canterbury University researcher said most spiders were terrified of ants and even “run for their lives” in fear of a jumping spider that pretends to be an ant. Spider and ant expert Dr Ximena Nelson said more than 300 species of spider have evolved to mimic ants other spiders feared. The jumping spider myrmarachne melanotarsa looks like, acts like, and hangs out with ants. Dr Nelson said it even formed “mini colony-type gangs” to thwart predators. “But most spiders are afraid of ants, and they even fear these fake ants that are really spiders,” Dr Nelson said. Dr Nelson, a spider and ant expert, believed the jumping spider evolved its ant-like ways in which each morph that resembled ants more was selected for and morphs that did not resemble ants were selected against. The deception worked better if the fake ant behaved like an actual ant too. “Ants are social and can mount a strong response if alerted to potential danger. They are extremely lethal to many spiders. Many ants also contain formic

acid, which they can use for defence by squirting it on potential predators, causing considerable harm,” Dr Nelson said. Only a few spiders were “ant specialists” that routinely consumed ants. “These species typically have venom or behavioural modifications that enable them to cope with ants. It has been suggested that the webs of Australian red back spiders are designed to catch ants,” Dr Nelson said. According to Te Papa, about 35,000 to 40,000 species of spider were known to scientists. The national museum said in New Zealand, around 1100 species were discovered, and 95 per cent of them were found nowhere else on earth.

Working past retirement age concerns Cantabs By Gabrielle Stuart

LESS THAN a third of people believe they will be able to retire before 65, and Cantabrians are particularly concerned it will effect their mental health. A survey by job seekers’ website SEEK found the majority of people polled wanted to retire at 65, but only 28 per cent believed they would. One in 10 New Zealanders surveyed believed they would still be working past 75. Christchurch residents surveyed were particularly concerned about their mental health as they grew older in the workplace. Fifty-three per cent of Cantabrians said they were very concerned, compared with 35 per cent of all those surveyed. Builder George Shirtcliff will turn 65 next year, but does not expect to retire. He recently brought a section in Wanaka which he wanted to build a house on, and said he would need to save more before he could afford it. But he enjoyed his job, and was not sure if he would want to retire even if he could, he said. “I think it’s a bit of both. I think in some cases people are pressured to keep working because the pension isn’t much. But I just have to keep busy.” He had no worries about his mental health, but said that after a recent injury in a motor-cycle accident, his physical health was on his mind. At 75, Age Concern Canterbury co-ordinator Lois Anderson said she would stop work immediately if it was jeopardising her health. But for now, she said she worked because she enjoyed it. “I enjoy helping the elderly people, believe it or not. It feels like a really worthwhile job.” She said that she retired when she turned 65, but was lured back into work on a casual basis by former bosses.

SAVING: Builder George Shirtcliff, 64, said he didn’t believe he could afford to retire next year and was likely to be working for several more years.

FRUGAL: Age Concern Canterbury co-ordinator Sharyn Anderson, 68, said she would like to retire but was not willing to give up travelling.

“Then they found they could slot me into a permanent position, and I have really enjoyed it so I have stayed.” She said she planned to keep working indefinitely. But fellow Age Concern Canterbury employee Sharyn Anderson said that she would have retired long ago if she could afford it. The 68-year-old said she lived fairly frugally, aside from holidays she took each year. “I have always been a traveller, so now my children have grown up I work so I can travel around the world and live life to the full. I would not be able to do that on superannuation.” She said she would like to retire, but was faced with a “catch 22” situation. “If you work you have the money to go on these holidays but you don’t have the time, and if you don’t you have all the time in the world but you can’t afford to do anything with it.” Older New Zealanders polled in the SEEK survey were “less idealistic” about when they wanted to retire, with only 31 per cent of people aged 55 to 64 expecting to retire by 65. The survey found lower income earners expected to work longer

than those on higher incomes. It also found that men were more concerned about their mental health in the workplace, and were more likely to stay for monetary reasons. Grey Power Christchurch president Ian Brownie said if people were “reasonably frugal” he believed they could retire by 65. He believed working later was not good for the economy. “I don’t see why you should sit there and take a job when there are people waiting to get into a job. There’s no sense in having an old fella sitting there until they’re 70.” But Age Concern Canterbury chief executive Simon Templeton disagreed. “I think with the aging population it is going to be more important. As a society we need people over the age of 65 to be working, otherwise we aren’t going to have a sustainable society.” But he believed people could retire earlier if they were willing to change their lifestyles. “To live just on superannuation is living very frugally. You can’t go on holidays to the Gold Coast or go out for meals or buy coffees from a café every morning, and a lot of people aren’t willing to give those things up.”

Fashion on the polo field

welve leading labels presented a parade of sartorial magic on December 11 at the Port Hills Polo Club. Fashion on the Polo Field took place under grey evening skies, but the atmosphere inside the marquee was bright and elegant, as models strutted the length of the catwalk, showing off garments which drew applause from guests. Organised to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House South Island (RMHSI), the evening included an auction of enviable must-have luxury items which were vigorously bidded for under the eagle eye of flamboyant auctioneer Bob Davidson. At one point, even a curious polo pony peeked around the entrance of the marquee to see what all the noise was about.

KenKen is a registered trademark of Nextoy LLC

It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2012 KenKen Puzzle LLC. All rights reserved

The much anticipated day has arrived the official STAGE ONE Grand Opening of the Richmond Working Mens Club. It’s been a long journey for the club since the shock discovery that the original buildings were beyond repair following the February quakes. “We’re grateful to the other Canterbury clubs for warmly accepting our members during this time, especially the Richmond Bowling Club for allowing us regular use of their clubrooms,” said Ricky Gilmore, General Manager. Although there are a few minor tasks still to be completed, the club will be fully operational and open to members, guests and affiliated members from 11am tomorrow. “While design for Stage Two is underway, it won’t be complete for a few more years,” said Ricky. “In the meantime we invite everyone to enjoy our new club facilities that will be open 7 days.”

Looking back and ahead Games of the year ■■ Pat Smith Trophy Final Halswell Hornets v Celebration Lions It’s rare that a final produces a great game. All too often, the occasion means teams play within their shells, but that wasn’t the case in this one. After the two sides traded early blows, Halswell ran out to a 24-8 lead at half-time, before Celebration mounted a comeback to tie things up at 24-all with only a few minutes remaining. The last chance then fell to Hornet Brendon Tusa, who crossed in the 78th minute to deliver his side the title. ■■ ASB Women’s Knockout Cup Coastal Spirit v Universities The local rounds of the national cup were completed in a flurry in April and May, with defending champions Coastal needing to beat local up-and-comers Universities to move on to the national section. Ahead 1-0 heading in to injury time, they looked to have done it, when Universities found an equaliser, just rewards for a secondhalf where they had controlled the game. Neither side found the net in extra time and so it was penalties to decide a winner, where Coastal emerged on top. ■■ Reta Fitzpatrick Cup Final Coastal Spirit v Universities The battle between these two sides ran all season, with Uni handing Coastal their only league loss in a game that also saw them claim the Hawkey Shield. Their fifth and final encounter came in the cup final, where they combined to produce a roller-coaster of a game. Coastal were up 2-0 after half an hour, before Uni pulled one back. On the hour mark, they found their equaliser, then Coastal edged back in front in the 73rd minute, before Uni equalised again, all three of their goals coming from striker Aimee Phillips. Both sides were chasing the win in regulation, and it was Coastal who found the goal, courtesy of Annalie Longo, as they completed the league and cup double. ■■ Crusaders v Sharks This one is here for all the wrong reasons, but I’m afraid its historic nature has to be respected. South African sides just don’t win in New Zealand. And they especially don’t win when they’re reduced to 14 men in the first half, and to 13 for a spell in the second. But somehow, the Sharks did. In the lead-up to the game, Sharks coach Jake White had talked up his side’s chances of producing a game that would be talked about for years to come. Afterwards, his opposite Todd Blackadder was spitting tacks. He would get his revenge though, as the Sharks couldn’t perform another miracle when the two sides met again at the same venue in the semi-finals.

the earthquakes. Plans for a sports hub at Nga Puna Wai took a big step forward, with a public consultation period running for two months up until last Friday, and council hearings schedule for early next year. Russian philanthropist Slava Meyn’s plans for a football facility out at Yaldhurst were revealed and resource consent was granted last month. The new stadium, to replace Lancaster Park, seems to have been kicked quite far down the road, with the latest timeline suggesting it won’t be built until 2025. While the one we currently have in Addington does a mighty job, I’m not sure it can keep doing it for more than a decade to come. I got a taste of Forsyth Barr Stadium in October, and it’s exactly what the city needs. Of course, money is hard to come by at the moment, and you can understand why the project has to be put on the backburner.

With 2014 almost in the books, Andrew Voerman casts his eye over the sporting year that was and looks forward to the one that will be. ■■ The Mainland Pride showed that women’s football in the city is in the middle of a special era, winning the national women’s league for the second year in a row, losing only one game along the way, while teenage defender Meikayla Moore has established herself as a member of the Football Ferns squad ahead of next year’s World Cup. Men’s club side Cashmere Technical also went back-to-back, in the Chatham Cup, the first time that feat has been achieved since the mid-90s, after beating Central United 2-1 in the final. Tech fell just short of winning the quadruple, falling to Western in the English Cup final after already securing the Mainland Premier League and South Island Football Championship trophies. ■■ The Crusaders season ended in heartbreak. Leading in the final in Sydney with a handful of minutes remaining, they turned over possession and conceded a penalty, which Waratahs kicker Bernard

YOUNG STAR: Teenage Mainland Pride defender Meikayla Moore made several appearances for the Football Ferns in 2014, as well as helping the Mainland Pride to their second national league title in a row. ■■ Looking to 2015, there’s ​

Foley duly slotted through the posts. It was a long, hard slog just getting to the final. After their customary slow start, they burst into life while away in South Africa, with the emergence of big Fijian wing Nemani Nadolo as their goto man on attack, and only lost two games from there on in, with their best performance coming in a 38-6 shellacking of the Sharks in their semi-final. Another year without a title, but one where they weren’t that far off the pace. ■■ The Canterbury Wizards farewelled that moniker with a win in the Plunket Shield, and losses in the semi-finals of the Ford Trophy and HRV Cup. The new-look Kings, playing in purple, (and attracting the biggest crowds of the tournament at Hagley Oval) started strongly in the new season’s Georgie Pie Super Smash before fading and failing to make the finals. Tom Latham’s domestic form was rewarded with a call up to the Black Caps’ test team, where he’s already compiled two hundreds, while Matt Henry has emerged as the most recent addition to their pace bowling stocks.

COMEBACK: Andy Ellis had an impressive season with the Crusaders, as they finished second to the Waratahs, prompting calls for his return to the All Blacks.

■■ Following a cracking club league season, where the Halswell Hornets just pipped Celebration Lions in the grand final, the Canterbury Bulls headed into their national premiership campaign full of confidence that this could be their year – and so it turned out to be. The signings of Ken Tofilau and Cyrus Timo-Latu with the under-20 sides at the Newcastle Knights and North Queensland Cowboys respectively, as well as that of Rulon Nutira with the St George Illawarra Dragons, show

there is plenty of talent around the city. ■■ For the first time in seven years, the ITM Cup isn’t spending the summer in Christchurch. Canterbury’s run finally came to an end, with their campaign beset by injuries, and an untimely All Blacks call up for their fourthchoice first-five, just when his services were needed the most. ■■ The Canterbury Rams made their return to the NBL, posting a respectable 6-12 record, and filling Cowles Stadium for their home games. With Mark Dickel on board for next season, and the Otago Nuggets and Waikato Pistons both pulling out of the league, they’ll be looking to move up into a finals position in 2015. ■■ It was a mixed year with regard to making progress on replacing the facilities lost in

plenty to be excited about. Before this year’s out, Hagley Oval will host the Boxing Day test, and with sales for day one already in excess of 4000, it promises to be a special occasion. Then comes the World Cup in February, and the Black Caps’ opening game as well as two others. The Crusaders have brought back pretty much their entire squad, and Robbie Fruean to boot, and will be looking to finally break the drought that has stretched from 2008 to now. This could be the end of an era – you’d have to be a brave man to bet against it being Richie McCaw and Dan Carter’s last season in the red and black. Then there’s the FIFA Under-20 World Cup, which will bring 11 games to Christchurch in June, including a semi-final. While as hosts, we will be doing extremely well to make it out of our group, the month-long feast of football it will provide is attraction enough.

ON THE RISE: Teenage fullback Ken Tofilau was key to the Canterbury Bulls’ success this season, and has now signed with the Newcastle Knights under-20s.

Golden Oldies The Star continues to look back at its sporting past. Canterbury Cricket chief executive Lee Germon is pictured in December 1985, alongside Mark Hastings, as they prepared to contest the national under-18 tournament. Nine-year-old Simon Blackwell of Cashmere was sent sprawling during a tournament that month, where he showed “the application, the anguish,

(and) the determination,” of “a crucial tie-breaker in a United States Open semifinal.” He went on to win the match 9-2. At the same tournament, Paul McLaughlin, Michael Corbett and Grant Johnson had to enlist the help of chairs as they went about their umpiring duties. On New Year’s Eve that year, Canterbury softball pitcher Chubb Tangaroa showed off his speedball. December 21, 1985

Canty cricket captain leads by example By Andrew Voerman

FIRST-INNINGS runs will be top of Canterbury’s wish-list when they take on Otago in Rangiora starting tomorrow. First-up knocks of 242 and 269 in their two Plunket Shield matches so far have left them chasing the game the second time around. And captain Peter Fulton says it would be nice if they could get it right first time and take some of the pressure off themselves. “That’s two games in a row in the Plunket Shield where we haven’t really batted that well in the first innings. “Hopefully, this next game we can get some guys having big scores.” If they need any inspiration, Fulton is the man to look to. His 209 not out in Canterbury’s second dig against Central Districts at the weekend handed his side the advantage heading into the final day, where they completed their first win of the season, bowling CD out with less than four overs to spare. He said it was nice to return to four-day cricket, where there was plenty of time to bat and build an innings, after a month of Twenty20 action. “It’s just pleasing I guess, to not only get a hundred, but to kick on and make a really big score which is what you always want to as a top order player.” While their batting needs work, Fulton has been impressed with

■■ THE GAME Plunket Shield

Round 3 Canterbury v Otago Mainpower Oval, Rangiora Thursday-Sunday, 10.30am

TOP ORDER: Peter Fulton made 209 not out against Central Districts. how his side have bowled, especially in the CD game. “The wicket was pretty good for batting so to be able to bowl Central Districts out twice on what was a pretty good batting pitch was a pretty good effort, and if we’re going to have more success in the Plunket Shield we’re going to need our bowlers to keep doing that. “If you’ve got a bowling attack that can take 20 wickets in a match, you give yourselves a good chance.’’ Wicketkeeper Fred Anderson made his debut in the win over CD, claiming seven catches, and had done everything that was asked of him, said Fulton. “It’s a good sign when you have a young guy like that who can come in and fit in straight away.

“He just went about his work and fitted in perfectly really.” Sunday’s win was Canterbury’s first at the new-look Hagley Oval in five attempts, which Fulton said was nice to finally have achieved. “Everyone was pretty happy with that, and looking forward to playing there more in the future.” Tomorrow’s game will be played at Rangiora’s Mainpower Oval, on a pitch which Fulton said has tended to play rather slow in the past. “It could be one of those games where you’ve got to be pretty patient with bat and ball, sometimes once a batter gets in it can pretty hard to dislodge him.” Otago come into the game as the only side yet to register a win this season, but should have the services of Brendon McCullum as they look to change their luck around. On Sunday, they fell agonisingly short of what would have been a record fourth-innings chase in New Zealand, losing by 27 runs to Northern Districts, all out for 474, with a handful of overs remaining.

FLICKED: Canterbury’s Courtney Buckman plays a shot to square leg during her side’s win over Otago yesterday as part of the national women’s under-21 tournament. Opening the batting, Buckman scored 42 as Canterbury amassed 359 for three, a total that proved well beyond their southern rivals. The tournament runs until Monday at Lincoln University.
