E-coli found in Waimarama water supply

Residents in Waimarama, Hawke’s Bay, have been told to boil their water, after E-coli bacteria was detected in the public water supply.

People in Hastings District Council should boil the water before using it for “drinking, cleaning teeth, making ice, washing dishes and preparing food.”

“The council is [already] the focus of a public inquiry into how campylobacter got into their water supply last year.”

Two weeks ago, the Enfield Road Reservoir in Hawke’s Bay that supplies much of Napier was chlorinated after testing positive for E-coli.

Phenomenal Police Incompetence/Institutional Corruption

Trailer-load of evidence “insufficient”, police  say

“Police say there was insufficient evidence to charge a group of people caught with a trailer-load of household items during an alleged burglary.

“The incident was highlighted by Whanganui woman Ngaire Madams who in an interview on Monday said police had caught ‘red handed’ people responsible for burgling her home, but let them go.”  http://www.nzherald.co.nz/wanganui-chronicle/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503426&objectid=11796835

Hundreds of whales killed in mass stranding at Farewell Spit

Posted by te2ataria on February 11, 2017

NO road fatality report allowed on Friday!

######

About 420 whales beached at Farewell Spit in Golden Bay

It is said to be New Zealand’s third-worst recorded whale stranding.

At least 340 pilot whales have died after a mass stranding on Farewell Spit, and about 80 were still alive tonight.

“The whales were reportedly stranded about one kilometre from the base, inside the Farewell Spit.

Project Jonah said there were many reasons for whales to strand. If they were old, or sick, a whale might struggle to keep up with the pod. Underwater explosions caused by sonar, seismic testing or underwater sea quakes could also have an impact on them,” said a report.   http://www.stuff.co.nz/nelson-mail/news/89265113/mass-whale-stranding-at-farewell-spit

Man killed in explosion on cruise ship at Port Chalmers

[Donald, it was negligent homicide, NOT terrorism.]

Police said there was a fatality on board a vessel [the Emerald Princess cruise ship] at Port Chalmers this evening.

“In a statement, Carnival Australia communications manager David Jones said initial reports suggested the incident happened during technical work on the hydraulic launching system on a tender vessel.” http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/89259548/emergency-services-rush-to-port-chalmers-after-explosion-on-cruise-ship

What does the frigging “I” in IPCA stand for?

IPCA finds officer bungled investigation of colleague, but… 

“A Taranaki officer failed to properly investigate a crash involving an off-duty colleague, the Independent Police Conduct Authority (IPCA) has found.”

But the whole thing was a waste of time because “IPCA did not find any evidence that suggested the investigating officer’s decisions were made as a result of bias or favouritism towards the off-duty officer,” the Acting Central District Commander Infector Stewart was quoted as saying.

Salvation Army’s 2017 State of the Nation Report: SNAFU

Posted by te2ataria on February 9, 2017

NO road fatality report allowed so far today!

Sent by a reader

Hundreds of  thousands of  New Zealand children live in income poverty

Child Poverty: Number of children living below poverty line (50% of median income after housing costs): Hundreds of thousands (Exact no. not available! )

Criminal Nation:

  • Total charges prosecuted against adults (excl. traffic offences): Hundreds of thousands.
  • Number of unique victims of physical & sexual assaults: Tens of thousands.
  • Number of adults convicted of a criminal offence: 64,616
  • Number of unique victims of physical & sexual assaults: Tens of thousands, possibly many many more.
  • New Zealand’s prison population reached a record 9,851 and is set to exceed 10.000 this year.
  • The average cost (adjusted for inflation) of keeping a prisoner in prison has risen from $86,700 in 2010/11, to $91,000 in 2014/15, and in 2015/16 to $92,800.

Gambling  Nation: Per-capita spending on gambling rose 3% during 2016 to $623 for every adult. In 2010, it was slightly higher at $638 per adult. [The no. of homes that can be burgled  is finite! —Moderator.]

Alcoholic Nation: 19.3% of the adult population were assessed as drinking hazardously in 2015/16, which is 4.4% higher than in 2011/12.

Bankrupt Nation:  Average household debt rose 6.7% during 2015/16 to $144,400, while total household debt reached a record, equalling 96% of GDP (NZ$255bn).

Housing Availability: Almost 10,000 consents for new dwellings were issued in Auckland during 2015/16—the highest in 11 years. At the same time, the region’s population grew by 45,000 people, further adding to its housing shortage, which is estimated at more than 18,000 houses over the past five years.

Benefits and Pensions: The number of people receiving working-age benefits declined by just over 4,000 to 297,000, while the number of people being paid a retirement pension rose by 26,000.

Number of food parcels provided by The Salvation Army: 54,000 (2014), 55,200 (2015), 56,000 (2016).

Illicit Drugs: Convictions for illicit drug offences rose for the first time in seven years by 5.5% to 9,886. This is still 28% fewer than five years previously. [Speaks volume for police complicity?]

Off The Track is the 10th State of the Nation report from The Salvation Army’s Social Policy and Parliamentary Unit.

How accurate is the data provided by the Salvation Army?
“Auckland’s housing bubble continued to grow during 2016, with the median house price jumping 12% to almost $854,000,” says the report.

However, the average value of an Auckland home passed the $1 million mark in early September 2016. Quotable Value’s monthly house price index for Auckland in August hit $1,013,632 – up from July’s figure of $992,000.

At least seven people killed by drowning over Waitangi weekend

At least one death was negligent homicide

Bay of Plenty of Deaths

Woman drowned in the Waikato River after gates of the Aratiatia Dam were opened yesterday. The victim, most probably an overseas visitor, “was swept away yesterday when spillwater from the Mercury Energy-owned dam, near Taupo, surged down the Waikato River, and her body was found this morning,” said a report.

“Mercury Energy Chief Executive Fraser Whineray said the power company was reviewing the warning signs and procedures in the area to see if any improvements could be made,” said the report.

“We’ll be … checking to see if there’s anything further that can be done to minimise the risk, but we’d really ask, please, if people can not be down in the rapids area because it can be very dangerous when those spillways are open.”

Adding insult to injury, in the time-honoured Kiwi tradition, Taupo mayor said locals tended to stay away from the area on the Waikato River where the woman drowned.
