Capital athletics meeting forced to move as track not ready By Jamie Adams

One of the biggest events of Wellington’s athletics calendar will not be taking place in the capital this season. The Team Ledger Bayleys Capital Classic 2018 was meant to happen at Newtown Park this Saturday after a postponement from Friday due to work replacing the surface of the running track. Weeks of work on the track had taken place over summer to get it finished in time for the Classic, which doubles as a trial for the Commonwealth Games, however by Wednesday morning Wellington City Council spokeman Richard Maclean confi rmed that the track would not be ready for it. Contractor Polytan had been working to resurface the track only five years after it had previously been resurfaced it due to moisture buildup underneath parts of it. “It’s defintely not happening. We have, since before Christmas, been urging the event organisers to find another venue,” Richard says. “The contractors have been

working long hours but there is a limit to how many days and hours the crews can work without a break – and some local residents have been complaining about the noise when the crews have worked late.” Capital Classic meeting director Tony Rogers confirmed the meet will be moved to Cooks Gardens in Whanganui

to be held on the same day. Tony was disappointed with the outcome, given the dry weather over the past week had given contractor Polytan plenty of time to allow lanes to be painted and settled. “We are disappointed because the project time hasn’t made the guidelines fot the timeline we had put out.”

The event could have been postponed further but was necessary in this case due to it doubling as a trials event for April’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. Richard was confident the track would be ready for other upcoming athletics of the summer such as such as the MacEvedy Shield.

Local artist brings augmented reality to Maori treasures By Jamie Adams

Augmented reality (AR) will be available at the public’s fingertips when an acclaimed “live art” event comes to Wellington next month. Pukana, by Suzanne Tamaki and Plan Beta, is one of several exhibitions that will feature on a two-storey arrangement of shipping containers on Wellington’s waterfront as part of The Performance Arcade from February 23. Thanks to the technological marvel of AR, the shipping containers and scaffolding will be clad with digital images of traditional Maori architecture and artefacts that can only be viewed on a smartphone via a downloadable app. The secret is in the printed decals or geo-locating beacons that are embedded on the containers, similar to QR codes that can be found at many exhibitions nowadays. Suzanne, of Newtown, says her idea came after she met Joff Rae and fellow digital producers “the Lost Boys” of Strathmore-based Plan Beta, while curating a Matariki exhibition for Toi Poneke. “Joff had been working in augmented reality and I was working in the Maori collection team at Te Papa, so I had access to their taonga,” Suzanne says. “Joff was wanting to create 3D images of the taonga. “I spoke to the collection manager about it and realised it was an opportunity to create a few ideas for an exhibition.” Using a locally-sourced photogrammetry booth, the team was able to 3D-scan a range of Maori artefacts that could then be viewed as virtual images. As distinct from virtual reality, which requires a bulky

headset, augmented reality sees the artefacts “pop up” on a smartphone screen from certain angles. Suzanne is excited about her exhibition as not only will it attract more interest, being on the waterfront rather then inside a gallery, it is likely to be the first of its kind in New Zealand. “This hasn’t been shown in a public space yet.” She notes how what the public will view on their screens will be “copies of copies”, however she does not believe replicating


inbrief news Kai and kapa haka for Waitangi Day The Wellington City Council is encouraging people to come together to celebrate Waitangi Day at the venue our national day was named after. Te Rā o Waitangi will be happening on Wellington’s waterfront from noon on February 6. The main musical event at Waitangi Park will feature a line-up of award winning Maori performers including Whirimako Black, Rob Ruha, Tomorrow People and Alien Weaponry. It starts at noon and runs until 7.30pm. Kai will also be offered to the public that morning at Te Wharewaka o Pōneke. A hangi will be lowered into a pit at the Wharewaka Terraces at 9am with a waka salute, a weaving demonstration and public kapa haka practice sessions taking place while the food cooks. The hangi will be lifted for lunch at noon and there will also be musical entertainment outside Karaka Cafe from 2pm.

Call for action over sugary drinks

taonga diminshes their value. Running over two weekends, The Performance Arcade is an accessible and free festival of performance art and live music that has attracted 50,000 people every year to Wellington’s Waterfront since 2011. A total of 24 works from 30 artists will feature, including from Wellingtonians Daniel James with Instant Replay and Angela Kilford with Weaving The Walk. The Performance Arcade 2018 runs from February 23-

Recent research on the sugar content of non-alcoholic drinks showed New Zealand drinks have higher sugar levels compared to Australia, Canada and the UK. The New Zealand Dental Association is calling for immediate measures to address sugary drink harm, including an icon label on sugary drinks, a sugary drink levy, and ensuring schools are “water only”. Sugar is a major contributor to dental decay, the association says. “An end to the confusion around ‘sugar per 100mls’ is within our grasp,” NZDA’s Dr Rob Beaglehole says. “We’re asking for a sugary drink icon. This would clearly let consumers know how many teaspoons of sugar are in their drink.”

With the lovely scent of rotten flesh By Julia Czerwonatis

The Begonia House in the Botanic Garden carries a peculiar smell since last Sunday after its stinking flower started blooming. “The Stapelia grandiflora, commonly known as carrion flower or starfish, is pollinated by flies,” Ali Whitton, Wellington Gardens’ visitor experience team manager, explains. “That’s why it smells like rotten flesh.” The flowers emit an odour as a technique to attract flies in areas where other pollinating insects are scarce. The Stapelia Grandiflora, native to South Africa, is a

cactus-like plant with fine hairs growing on its succulent leaves. In October last year, a similar plant nicknamed Stinky McStinkypants also bloomed with the aroma of rancid flesh in the Begonia House. “We don’t have a proper nickname for our Stapelia Grandiflora yet. It looks a bit like one of the monsters from Stranger Things, so perhaps that’ll be inspiring for a name,” Ali says.  The carrion flower is expected to bloom for two to three days. With any luck, it’s still flowering today. Visit the Begonia House anytime between 9am-5pm. Entry free.

Band to reunite for Gardens Magic concert

Fire in Makara Wellington fire fighters were called out on Monday at 11.30am to a scrub fire on Makara Road, between Makara Cemetery and the intersection Makara Rd/Opau Rd/Takarau Rd. While fire fighters had the flames extinct by 1.20pm, crews were working well into the afternoon dampening down hot spots. No people were harmed nor houses damaged. Fire Emergency spokesperson Carlos Dempsey says fire services didn’t know yet what caused the fire.

Darren Watson will rejoin his 1980s rhythm & blues band Chicago Smoke Shop for Saturday’s Gardens Magic ‘Lucky Dip’ concert. PHOTO: Supplied

The worst kept secret of the Summer is out - Wellington City Council’s Gardens Magic Lucky Dip concert this Saturday sees two legendary acts take the Soundshell stage. It’s been 30 years since rhythm & blues band Chicago Smoke Shop trod the boards in their hometown. The 10-piece, horn-driven rhythm & blues extravaganza features original band members Darren Watson (frontman/songwriter) Richard Te One (drums), Aaron Te One (rhythm guitar) and special guest harmonica virtuoso Terry Casey, regarded as New Zealand’s finest blues harp player and the co-founder of Smoke Shop with Watson in 1985. But that’s not all - Julia Deans finally returns to Wellington as the opening act. With a honey-sweet falsetto

as well as a menacing growl, the voice of Julia has offered light and shade to a variety of musical endeavours over the years. From fronting Fur Patrol’s muscular pop-rock to her electro-pop stylings with Tiki Taane; from co-conspirator with renowned supergroup The Adults to sultry chanteuse in Silo Theatre’s production BREL; Julia has never shied from adding new strings to her bow. The Lucky Dip concertruns from 8pm to 9:30pm this Saturday, January 20 at the Wellington Botanic Garden’s Soundshell. In the event of rain Chicago Smoke Shop will perform on Monday, January 22 instead. Keep an eye on Wellington City Council’s Facebook page for updates or postponement details.

The Newtown Residents Association is planning further action after a disappointing outcome to a public meeting over the fate of their local Kiwibank and NZ Post branches. At last December’s meeting, representatives of the state-owned enterprise and its subsidiary confirmed that Newtown’s branches will merge with Kilbirnie’s to create a new hub to cater for the entire eastern and southern area of Wellington. The plan is part of a nationwide trend of NZ Post and Kiwibank branches consolidating in the wake of what their management says is reduced revenue and foot traffic as the internet becomes the dominant service provider. Postal services would remain, but only at agencies such as grocery stores which would provide limited services. The reaction from locals was overwhelmingly negative and NRA spokesman Warwick Taylor says a large turnout at a follow-up meeting of residents last Sunday shows demand for further action is high. “We had 30 people turn up, which is quite high at this time of year,” he says. “As a result of discussions we’ve set up three working groups, one of which is going to do a petition and we are hoping to get that done by the end of the week.” While Newtown is still resisting the change, they are also preparing for the result of a lost battle, Warwick says. “A group of people are looking at possible agencies. “We are wondering what the extent of that will be both in the variety and the access.” Another public meeting on the issue will be held at Newtown Mall, 199 Riddiford Street, on Sunday at 2pm. rom Ashley Wi

Emma already has plenty of knowledge of the shop, having worked there as a one of its counsellors for five years. “I am really excited about developing it and taking it further,” she says. “I like the combination of artists and the healing part of the shop. They go well with the health and wellbeing aspect. “Koru Hub has a life of its own.” Aptly reinforcing the idea of a new start in a new year, Jackie sold the business on January 1 with plans to spend the next few years travelling in New Zealand and overseas. “I’ll be going to the South Island then going up north. In autumn I’ll be going to Europe for a period of time then see what happens next.” Emma is mum about her plans for Koru Hub but Jackie is embracing the idea, expecting any changes to be “lovely”. The shop has changed hands several times in its 16-year existence but Jackie believes it’s not something that can be truly “owned” but rather “taken care of” for the benefit of the whole community.

Lego exhibition reaches epic milestone A popular exhibition at Te Papa has reached a milestone with 50,000 people having visited Brickman: Wonders of the World in the 35 days since it opened at Te Papa. The exhibition,which runs until February 11, showcases 50 of the world’s most iconic landmarks and masterpieces made exclusively from Lego bricks by Ryan McNaught, one of only 14 Lego Certified Professionals in the world. Te Papa chief cxecutive Geraint Martin says Ryan’s creations have huge appeal. “It’s been fantastic seeing kids of all ages enjoying the magic of Lego,” he says. “There is an audible ‘wow’ as people enter the space and come face to knee with Michelangelo’s Statue of David, and see Saint Basil’s Cathedral from Moscow’s Red Square. “It’s well on its way to being one of our most popular summer exhibitions – right on par with last year’s Bug Lab.” The interactive building stations have been a huge hit, Te Papa host supervisor Melissa Wells says. “People have been loving building their own pyramids, leaning towers of Pisa and coral for the Great Barrier Reef inspired by, and adding to, Brickman’s masterpieces,”

U3A is setting up a branch in the eastern suburbs. The global organisation, whose name stands for University of the Third Age, is for people who are retired or semi-retired who wish to keep their minds active and learning. Members meet together to share and learn from each other and sometimes outside speakers. Groups can be varied, for example, topical discussions, literature and poetry, just to name a few. Once a month an outside speaker is invited to talk on their specialist subject. Organiser Bev Webber says not all groups are academic. “Some are more social, for example going to the theatre or movies. Some groups meet in private homes and some in community halls.” Annual subscriptions are at $15 per person or $20 for couples. Sometimes a small amount is required to help pay hall hire. Bev says minds and bodies which are kept alert, always learning and active, age more slowly than those which are not used. “There is an old adage, ‘use it or lose it’ - don’t lose it!” Bev encourages those intersted to attend a meeting at Kilbirnie Community Centre on January 24 at 1.30 pm to find out more and sign up.

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: Should learning another language be compulsory at school?

Leanne Dilnot, Island Bay “Yes, it would be handy to have Maori taught in schools here. It’s supposed to be much easier to learn than other languages.”

David Witt, Owhiro Bay “I think it’s a good idea. I was brought up with a second language and it was compulsory. Language widens your attitude.”

Leone Hunter, Lower Hutt “It should be optional. Some people find it really hard, some will enjoy it.”

Michael Reddell, Island Bay “I don’t think it should be compulsory. My kids are choosing to learn a language. That’s the best way.”

Kath Boswell, Brooklyn “I don’t agree with anything compulsory but am keen for New Zealanders to learn te reo Maori. Younger kids are more open to learning languages.”

Heath Marks, Island Bay “I don’t think it should be compulsory but if you want to, yes. I’d be very annoyed if I had to.”

LETTERS to the editor

Mayor’s prophecies have nothing on the Bible Dear Editor; Re your CSN, Jan. 11, I wore my frequent cynical grin while reading what our young Mayor Mr Lester plans/ dreams Wellington will be like 100 years hence. Prominent people have been making such rosy longterm prophecies for 200-plus years now - sometimes based on their contemporary trends and knowledge, but always combined with wishful thinking,

and nearly always wildly wrong when the time has fully come. The prophets are always dead and gone by that time, will never get the public roasting that false prophets deserve, so at present can safely prophesy whatever pleasant things they like. Knowing all this, one thinks not of kakapos and kiwis in the backyard, so much as of metaphorical kangaroos in the top paddock,

bats in the belfry, or bees in the bonnet, in these optimistic predictions made by human wisdom. By the same token, if there should indeed be a colossal figure of our Ms Jacinda Ardern in 2118 Wellington, my guess is that it won’t be as our greatest Prime Minister, but as a sort of later Guy Fawkes who somehow succeeded in doing what he unsuccessfully planned to do - destroy Parliament, in effect. The only infallible prophecies are those

of the Bible; so as well as horrific natural disasters, there are soon going to be the inevitable consequences of all the wicked legislation and social degeneration, getting rapidly worse and worse, over the last half-century. This chaotic situation will be with us within ten or even five years, let alone a hundred; so I’m glad I’ll soon kick the bucket. H Westfold, Miramar

Childhood asthma and the school holidays Asthma is a common illness in New Zealand, affecting one in six Kiwi kids. Over the school holidays children are often exposed to many varying environments, which is different to what they usually would on a normal school week. Doing things like going away on family trips, being looked after by other caregivers in new environments, or attending sleep overs at friends’ homes, can mean that your child is exposed to

their asthma triggers. “A trigger is something that makes asthma worse or brings on an attack,” Head of Education and Research for the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ, Teresa Demetriou says. “Knowing as much as you can about your child’s asthma triggers can help you to reduce exposure to them, making your child’s asthma easier to handle.”

Making country predator free ‘benefits human health’ The Predator Free 2050 campaign to rid New Zealand of rats and possums will have major benefits for human health as well as for native plants and animals, University of Otago, Wellington public health researcher Dr Mary McIntyre says. In New Zealand rats carry infections such as salmonella, toxoplasma, giardia and campylobacter that can be spread to humans through contact with the animals or contaminated food and water. “Possums carry bovine TB [tuberculosis], which is also an ongoing and expensive livestock problem,” Mary says. “It is less well known that possums also provide a potential reservoir for mosquito-borne diseases such as the Ross River Virus.” “Nearly three out of five [58 percent] known infectious diseases in humans across the world are estimated to be caused by ‘zoonotic’ [shared with other animals] pathogens,” Mary says. “New Zealand has been a ‘land of milk and honey’ for the rats, which were introduced largely unwittingly, and for possums that were introduced in the 19th century to establish a fur industry. “The spread of diseases is largely a cost to society of our globalising travel habits. This greatly increases the chances

Trust appeals for street names that remember the fallen By Jamie Adams

of spreading new pests such as mosquitoes and ticks.” The establishment of mosquito-borne disease by infected people is a particular concern for New Zealand since there are already mosquitoes here which carry infections such as dengue fever. “In the right conditions people travelling from overseas could infect the local mosquitoes – instead of the other way around,” Mary explains. Eradicating pests would also remove any further need to use 1080 poison, says Mary. Wellington has been at the forefront of the predator-free movement, with almost all of its suburbs undertaking backyard

trapping throughout the city; there are now 24 backyard groups registered. “Forty-odd community groups are actively trapping in the city’s reserves and 80 community groups are working in the broader ecological restoration space,” says Predator Free Wellington Project Director, James Willcocks. “Not only are we leading the charge from a predator free perspective, but [last] year Wellington city has also seen almost 350,000 native trees planted.” The 5000 households participating in backyard trapping have removed over 13,000 rats, mice, weasels and stoats, according to the group.

With the official four-year commemorations of World War One ending in less than a year, there has been a renewed call to recognise historic military events or brave soldiers by featuring a poppy on signposts in streets and towns around New Zealand. It comes from the Poppy Places Trust Remembrance Project which says New Zealanders have an opportunity to make sure that a generation which suffered huge casualties is not forgotten and to recognise sacrifices in other conflicts. With an estimated 3000 existing streets identified with military connections, project manager Joe Bolton has called for a major public push to leave a lasting legacy for future generations to be signposted with a red poppy. “All it takes is a request by local residents to their councils, using a process set out on the Trust’s website - - to replace or modify existing street signs with the addition of a red poppy to mark its significance,” Joe says. Wellington city councillor Andy Foster has been the driving force behind the appeal in Wellington. The Onslow-Western ward councillor began researching the history of the city’s streets after

attending a Poppy Places Trust conference in Hawke’s Bay before commemorations began four years ago. “While some streets names are obvious, there are plenty that people didn’t have the faintest idea of their origin.” The campaign has led to a similar movement starting in Australia as more people become aware of the legacy of the war poppy, Andy says. Already five streets in Wellington’s southern and eastern suburbs have been identiifed as having a connection to World War One battlegrounds and the soldiers that fought in them, and have had poppies placed on their signposts as a result. Freyberg Street, Lyall Bay (named after Bernard Freyberg’s borther Paul); McColl Street, Vogeltown and Robieson Street, Mt Victoria all had poppies installed on the 100th anniversaries of their namesake’s deaths. Two other streets - Bruges Street, Miramar and Wingate Terrace, Newtown - had their poppies placed on Armistice Day 2014. Those who believe there are more streets in Wellington that have a connection to the Great War should get in touch with Andy to have their eligibility assessed. Email

NZSO go back to Bach in concert series Wellington will host special performances over two nights in February with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra celebrating some of Bach’s best-loved works, followed by a summer concert by the NZSO National Youth Orchestra. Back to Bach will feature works by the music giant and two of his contemporaries, Italian violinist Pietro Locatelli and French opera composer Jean-Philippe Rameau. NZSO Concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen, who will direct the concert and perform, says it will be a superb mix of Summer Concert conductor Guy Noble has led all of Australia’s main orchestras and worked with many international performers.

music from the Baroque era of 1600-1750. The Cathedral of St Paul is also an appropriate venue as Bach composed many of his works to be performed in churches. “Back to Bach is exciting not only because we play two of his very famous Brandenburg concertos, but also music from the same era by Locatelli and Rameau. This music is the basis for what classical music is now.” Leppänen says the concert is also special because there is no conductor. “Every player is extremely important. Everyone is basically leading the music, so you will see and hear a very active performance from all of us.” The concert will also include one of Bach’s most popular and admired works, the 2nd movement of Suite No. 3 in D major, best known as Air on the G String. The following day the will see the 60-member National Youth Orchestra perform works by Beethoven, Elgar and Dvorák. The orchestra will be conducted by Australian Guy Noble. He will accompany acclaimed young Kiwi cellist Matthias Balzat, who won the prestigious National Concerto Competition last year. Mathias will perform Elgar’s Cello Concerto, one of the most popular cello concerti ever written. The programme also features Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3, from his only opera Fidelio, and Dvorák’s Symphony No. 8 inspired by the composer’s love of Bohemian music.  Back to Bach will be held at Wellington Cathedral of St Paul on February 2, while the National Youth Orchestra summer concert will be held at the Michael Fowler Centrre on February 3. Both concerts start at 7.30pm.

Volunteers get sizzling to fund surf clubs Bunnings Warehouse Lyall Bay is gearing up for the Emergency Services Volunteers BBQ, taking place on Saturday, to raise much-needed funds for surf lifesaving. In its second year running, the barbecue encourages locals to support the Worser Bay and Lyall Bay surf lifesaving clubs by visiting Bunnings Warehouse Lyall Bay to buy a sausage (or two) or make a donation. Team members will be running the sausage sizzle with all money raised going directly to local emergency services volunteers. Matt Warren, Senior Executive of Surf Life Saving New Zealand said he is looking forward to the day, as it’s great to see the community come together to support emergency services. “This great initiative will see all funds raised go straight to local surf lifesaving

clubs, helping our volunteers continue serving the community in times of need. “We encourage locals to head to their local Bunnings to buy a sausage or make a donation to help us raise funds and continue the vital work we do.” Bunnings Warehouse Lyall Bay complex manager, Matthew Kimmins, said this is a terrific way for team members and the community to show their appreciation for these everyday heroes and the important work they carry out on a day to day basis. “The team is really excited to help raise vital funds for our local surf lifesaving,” Matthew says.  The Emergency Services Volunteers BBQ will be held at Bunnings Warehouse Lyall Bay on Kingsford-Smith Street, Rongotai, from 9am to 4pm on January 20.

World champion ready to take on Kiwis


ANZ helping Wellington get on top of their game this summer ANZ is giving keen cricketers from Wellington a helping hand to get on top of their game this summer. The programme will give New Zealand cricket fans the chance to get the help they need to improve their game. Whether it’s getting new team uniforms or replacing tired old gear, giving a pitch and clubrooms a makeover or the chance to get a one-on-one coaching session with a Black Caps or White Ferns player, ANZ is supporting cricket at every level this summer. Since 2009 ANZ has been supporting aspiring cricketers, their teams, clubs, schools and casual fans as they set out to make the most of New Zealand’s favourite summer game. This year ANZ extended its support to the White Ferns team which makes it now the major sponsor of the Black Caps and White Ferns

ANZ Head of Sponsorship Sue McGregor, said that ANZ is proud to support cricket at all levels - whether it’s the Black Caps and White Ferns representing our country on the international stage, or the next generation of players battling it out at the local grounds every Saturday. “We want to give players and fans the support they need. Whether that’s with a new set of cricket gear, something for the club that will make a difference, or making it possible to meet one of their heroes for some inspiration or motivation. “We know sometimes all you need is just that little bit of extra help to achieve, so we are committed to helping as many cricket fans as we can.”  Applications are now open at

World champion darts player Phil “The Power” Taylor is coming to Wellington. The Englishman is regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, having won 16 world cmapionships and a staggering 216 tournaments over a 32-year career. He recently retired from competitive darts, having finished runner-up at this year’s world championship in London, his 29th appearnce also being a record. Phil will attend an exhibition match at Walter Nash Stadium on February 3 alongside four top North Island darts players - Rob Szabo, Craig Caldwell, Mick Lacey and Tahuna Irwin - as well as four qualifiers who will confirmed on the day.

Dart Players New Zealand operations manager Katrina McBeath says they were able to secure Phil’s visit as he is currently in Australia attending a series of exhibition matches there. She is excited about what such a high-profile visit would have on the interest of the sport. “Darts is a sport that’s growing in the country at the moment and even in juniors coming through. this will certainly help.” The qualifiers will be decided at two venues, including at the Wainuiomata Darts Club. The four will then travel to Lower Hutt to take on “The Power” and a chance at bragging rights.  Tickets to the event are $60 and available at

Baz’s blueprint goes global Make no mistake, even in retirement Brendon McCullum still has a big impact on the highest form of the game. The former Kiwi skipper’s ballistic hitting approach at the top of the order is a trend now copied by every country in the world. The man known as ‘Baz’ perfected the art of the fast start by unsettling the bowlers with his footwork and raw power against the new ball. The tactic injects immediate momentum and eases the scoring pressure on the batsmen to come. England’s Jason Roy proved how game-changing this tactic can be when he blazed 180 in his team’s five wicket win over Australia in the opening one-day contest against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. In pursuit of 305 for victory, Roy was the aggressor as England had 87 on the board after 10 overs. While Roy continued to amass his match defining score, many openers eventually lose out of the roulette wheel that is aggressive stroke play

at all costs but a rapid 40 or 50 can be just the momentum shift needed for victory. McCullum mastered it in the last three years of his career and proved a team can comfortably chase in excess of 300 these days when 15 years ago it was seen as almost an assured win for the team batting first. The advent of Twenty20 cricket also has a lot to do with the higher totals. Batsmen are now comfortable chasing eight to 10 runs an over in dying stages of a run chase. Roy has sparked the tour for the English. His aggression along with that of pace bowler Mark Wood provided the blueprint for success going forward against Australia. Meet aggression with aggression, something their toothless test team didn’t do. Aggression is what McCullum used to make up for New Zealand’s short-comings on paper and turned them into world beaters. It’s changed the game as we know it.
