They are the ones who should pay for the cleaning up of the
waterways their "collective" read multinational
monster have done to much environmental damage
to this country without any consequence for to long.
Mr Fixit strikes again! Answer to everything. Insert terse or
witty one-liner here. Of course doctors, we dont need
doctor's here! We can all do it on our smart phones with Dr
Google! Let's stop paying Stephen for a year. Better yet
let's vote this no-idea-make-it-up-as-you-go-along man out of
office. He got his so called education for free, so get lost.
So much investment in NZ - this is great news! At some point
the money will have to start trickling down, or maybe even
torrents will flow, seeing that it has pooled at the top for
so long. After all, we are producing and selling more dairy
than ever, so perhaps it is time all New Zealanders start to
reap some of the benefits, like being able to upgrade
hospitals, keep physio pools, housing, jobs etc...
Putting NZ on the map. Raising the profile of Otago
University. Call me old-fashioned - go on, see if I care! -
but I can't see how "investing" in sports teams attracts
worthwhile students and other bright innovative people to
Dunedin better than this hero, "A University of Otago
professor whose research into stomach cancer has saved lives
"Prof Guilford's research included playing a key role in
developing non-invasive bladder cancer diagnostic tool
Cxbladder, which is being sold by Dunedin company Pacific
As he says "the research was the result of work put in by a
team of scientists". What an attraction for above-average
researchers, the opportunity to work on such valuable
research with such a talented leader!
Let's see more of this kind of thing to attract people to
Dunedin, to OU, instead of the "watch sport in a stadium,
party till you pass out, burn a couch student lifestyle"
When I moved from Sydney to Dunedin in 2010 there were 2
direct flights per week in summer months between the 2
cities. I used these to fly back for Christmas with family.
In 2013 this cost me $650. (I went at a different period last
This year there are no direct flights and the cost is $950
return. I could go a bit cheaper if I was willing to sit all
night in Auckland airport (no thanks).
Therefore I have booked with Emirates from Christchurch for
$640 (and I will get a meal). The flights from Dunedin to
Christchurch with Air New Zealand (of course no choice) are
$136 up on 22/12 and $156 back on 30/12.
I have booked with Intercity bus up for $19 which I have now
done several times, it connects nicely with Emirates. Coming
back there are no late buses but I have booked a night in the
YMCA for $80 and $5 for the bus the next day.
Hamas fires missiles at civilian-populated areas. They broke
every ceasefire, and they will be first to fire missiles
again. They will continue to fire mssiles from civilian areas
to discourage Israeli retaliation, and martyr the public to
gain international sympathy. There will be no elections
in Gaza; all who disagree with Hamas will be sorted out
forcefully. The building materials will be used by Hamas for
more tunnels, instead of helping its people. Hamas will
receive more weapons and money from their wealthy
supporters. Notice how Egypt doesnt want to have a border
crossing with Hamas? Why not blame Egypt for the blockade?
Read the Hamas and PLO charters if you want to know why
there will never be peace. This extreme unrelenting hatred is
why there is no solution. If it was about land there would
already be peace.
Well done Chorus. I thoroughly appreciate all the street art
we're seeing in our city: it's respected & therefore left
alone by taggers, and provides colour and amusement in
otherwise dull corners. More please!
