Two major reports that yesterday found "systemic failure" in
ACC's privacy-protection measures have vindicated concerns
long raised by Otago ACC claimants, Dunedin ACC campaigner Dr
Denise Powell said yesterday.
Establishing a new Antarctic science foundation is a
"fantastic" move that will accelerate global research on the
frozen continent and the Southern Ocean's role in climate
change, Prof Gary Wilson, of the Otago University, says.
University of Otago vice-chancellor Prof Harlene Hayne
yesterday rejected any suggestion the university was
contributing to alcohol abuse problems, saying excessive
drinking was a society-wide problem.
