Foreword: What does a failed country look like? 

“We have a [kosher] white supremacist establishment that shame even Donald Trump [NY mafia,] spend billions on an incompetent and unnecessary military, and let a brutal police force [and private security/spy firms] run the country [and commit murder and other heinous crimes] with absolute impunity, but have no clean water [and go blind while waiting for eye care, or die within hours of being released from hospital, while a significant portion of the taxpayers’ money goes toward servicing money-laundering operations, instead of feeding the 325,000 kids – and their families – who live below the poverty line… and we allow Chinese gangsters and the likes to inflate property prices, making home ownership impossible for many ] in New Zealand…” — A Reader

Homelessness in Nelson ‘as bad as big cities’

[Many] more than 40,000 New Zealanders were classed as homeless in 2016, according to research carried out University of Otago.

Census data showed the number of homeless people in Nelson almost doubled to 400 in the seven years to 2013.” [The homeless who failed to answer the Census FIVE YEARS AGO are not included in the data!!!]

“Nelson mayor Rachel Reese said there was no central register for recording accurately, but now, five years on from the 2013 Census, the number was bound to be higher.” [No shit!!!]

“What we do know, based on Census data, is that between 2006 and 2013, Nelson, Auckland and Wellington regions showed the biggest increase in homelessness – and where Nelson sits is very poorly understood at a government level,” the useless mayor said.

Defence Force Turns Toxic

With a Frigging Defence Force like this, we better not make any foreign enemies

Toxic foam: Defence Force blocks vital water contamination data
“New Zealand Defence Force is blocking a regional council from getting vital information it needs to investigate toxic firefighting foam contamination in its water supply.”

“Horizons Regional Council covers the area from Ruapehu to Horewhenua. It asked NZDF weeks ago for modelling about groundwater movements under the contaminated Ohakea airbase – it received nothing. The Ministry for the Environment also refused its plea for help trying to finding out how drinking water in Bulls was contaminated with low levels of foam chemicals, PFAS.”

Escaped murder in the hands of police, but are seriously ill? Suffering from cholesterol increase, uric acid increase, thyroid disease, testicular and kidney cancer, pregnancy induced hypertension, diabetes [and associated eye diseases,] birth weight decrease, or even worse? You may have been poisoned by NZ Defence Force!

Myrtle rust found for first time in Manawatu -MPI

Posted by te2ataria on March 19, 2018

Foreword: Seriously ill? Suffering from cholesterol increase, uric acid increase, thyroid disease, testicular and kidney cancer, pregnancy induced hypertension, diabetes [and associated eye diseases,] birth weight decrease, or even worse? You may have been poisoned by NZ Defence Force. [See bottom of page!]

Myrtle rust spreading throughout the country

Myrtle rust has been found in Manawatu for the first time, the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has just confirmed.

The fungus was detected on a young ramarama (Lophomyrtus) in a planted area off Victoria Esplanade in Palmerston North, said MPI.

“It is disheartening that myrtle rust has been detected in another region, but it is consistent with the expected infection pattern,” said myrtle rust response spokesperson Dr Catherine Duthie.

“Residents can help, by checking the myrtle plants in their garden. At this time of year, the fungus is still in its sporulation, or spreading, stage. This means it is very visible. Without touching the plant, you can look on either side of the leaves and new shoots for any sign of a bright yellow, powdery eruption. Some leaves could also be buckled or twisted, or look diseased with dry pustules that are grey or brown. It’s really important not to touch the plants or brush against them, as this can disrupt the spores and speed up its spread.”  https://www.mpi.govt.nz/news-and-resources/media-releases/myrtle-rust-found-for-first-time-in-manawatu/

Why is NZDF used to crackdown on home-grown cannabis?

Because it’ll help to stabilize the market price of lucrative drugs that enrich the establishment!

Cannabis crackdown uncovers 10,000 marijuana plants…

“About 10,000 cannabis plants have been seized as part of an annual police operation supported by the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF),” said a report.
https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/102406629/Cannabis-crackdown-uncovers-10-000-marijuana-plants-30-guns-and-50-000-cash

Why is the NZDF involved?

They’re instructed to destroy local competition to ensure the price of other drugs like “P” and cocaine will remain stable. The drug cartel that controls the market in NZ and Pacific Islands [their associates include key government officials and powerful members of  the establishment] is  determined to retain its monopoly over sales of lucrative illicit drugs in the region.

National outbreak of whooping cough declared –MoH

Posted by te2ataria on December 2, 2017

WARNING! SEVERE Karmic Events Occurring Throughout NZ! ARE YOU READY?

*****

WATCH THIS SPACE – YOUR LIFE MAY WELL DEPEND ON IT!
.

Another national outbreak of whooping cough declared in poxy New Zealand

A national outbreak of whooping cough has been declared, following 1,315 reported cases of the disease since January 2017, the Ministry of Heath reported.

“Babies under one year old are most vulnerable to the disease and often catch it from older siblings, their parents or family members and friends,” said Ministry of Health Director of Public Health Dr Caroline McElnay.

“The best way to protect babies is for pregnant women to get their free immunisation against whooping cough between 28 and 38 weeks of pregnancy, and take their baby for their free immunisations when they’re six weeks, three months and five months old.” Any siblings should also be up-to-date with their immunisations – older children receive free boosters at four and eleven years of age. If people are unsure whether they or their children have been immunised, they can talk to their health practitioner, doctor or nurse.

“New Zealand’s most recent national outbreak spanned from August 2011 to December 2013, with about 11,000 cases notified. A total of 3 deaths in babies and young children occurred during this period, with hundreds needing hospital treatment.”

Myrtle rust found in Wellington region

Myrtle rust, the fungal plant disease, has been found in Lower Hutt, north of Wellington the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) reported.

MPI laboratory confirmed positive infection in 3 ramarama (Lophmyrtus bullata) plants in a Hutt Valley garden Thursday night.

“The 2-metre-high plants are in a row and are heavily infected, says the myrtle rust response incident controller Catherine Duthie.

“Myrtle rust is a fungus that attacks – and can potentially seriously affect – myrtle species plants, including natives such as pōhutukawa, ramarama, mānuka and rātā.”

“This new find, significantly further south of other known infection in the upper North Island, is very disappointing,” Duthie says.

Water Shortages, Drought…

Wellington’s emergency reserves are empty

“Wellington’s water crisis is deepening despite usage dropping with the rollout of a sprinkler ban, and more restrictions are likely sooner rather than later. On Friday, available water only outstripped usage by two million litres, and that was with the region already drawing heavily from emergency lake supplies that would normally remain untapped until late January.” https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/99447972/More-water-restrictions-likely-in-Wellington-as-emergency-reserves-are-drained

Myrtle rust appears in west Auckland

“The fungal plant disease myrtle rust has been found for the first time in the Auckland region,” MPI reported.

“The Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) says a serious infection of several hundred Lophomyrtus (ramarama) plants has been confirmed on a commercial plant production property in the Waimauku area of west Auckland.

“Myrtle rust is a fungus that attacks and can seriously affect myrtle species plants including some significant natives such as pōhutukawa, mānuka, kānuka and rātā.

“Myrtle rust response controller Dr Catherine Duthie says the facility owner reported suspected myrtle rust to MPI on Tuesday and MPI was able to confirm the infection late yesterday (Wednesday).”

Laboratory tests by MPI confirm presence of plant fungus in Te Puke, Bay of Plenty [of Death]

The infection has been found in a 25-year-old ramarama plant in a private residential garden, said Myrtle rust response Incident Controller David Yard, who called the new find “very disappointing.”

“We had thought that the incursion could be contained to the small geographical area around Waitara. While it’s too early to say what the new detection will mean in terms of the ongoing operation, it’s certainly not good news in terms of its distribution in New Zealand,” he said.

“Our preliminary talks with the property owner have not found any obvious link with the situation in Taranaki or Northland, and there have been no recent nursery plant introductions to the garden. This lends weight to the possibility that this new location is a wind-borne infection.”

To date, there are 46 known infected properties in New Zealand including 4 in Northland, 2 in Waikato, 39 in Taranaki and the 1 new find in Bay of Plenty.

The number of properties infected with myrtle rust nationally has risen to at least 39, according to the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).

“Thirty-three of the affected properties are in Taranaki, 4 in Northland and 2 in the Waikato (Te Kuiti). Over the weekend, there was a new positive detection in Northland – on 2 plants traced from the original affected nursery in Kerikeri. The plants have been removed and safely destroyed.

“Myrtle rust has been found on a mix of both seedlings and adult trees and the affected species are pōhutukawa, Lophomyrtus bullata (Ramarama), eucalyptus, mānuka and Syzygium smithii (Lilly Pilly). It has not been observed on feijoa as yet.

MPI says it has received 720 reports of suspected symptoms from the public.

“There are 34 confirmed properties with myrtle rust infection – 29 of these are in Taranaki with 3 in Northland and 2 in Waikato (King Country),” MPI said.

While most of the infections have been found on young seedlings, there are instances of the rust appearing in large established trees at a number of locations.

The spread of this fungal plant disease could have serious impacts on a range of plants in the myrtle family including pōhutukawa, mānuka, ramarama, feijoa and eucalypts, MPI said.

Record number of NZers diagnosed with HIV

Posted by te2ataria on May 31, 2017

The Most Heavily Censored Blog in New Zealand  [Watch Out for Ceaseless Swarms and Immense Tsunamis of Bad Karma, Mister Ingrish!!]

*****

HIV cases in NZ jumped 9% in 2016

“In 2016, 244 people (217 men, 27 women) were first known to be infected with HIV in New Zealand, 118 through Western Blot antibody testing and 126 through viral load testing. Of these 244, 30 had been previously diagnosed overseas.

“Of the 244, 159 were men who have sex with men (MSM), 5 men were infected through either sex with another man or injecting drug use, 42 people (22 men, 20 women) were infected through heterosexual contact, and one person was infected by injecting drug use (IDU). For the remaining 37 people (30 men, 7 women) the means of infection was unknown or information is still to be received.

“The total number of diagnoses in 2016 (244) was higher than in 2015 (224). Among MSM the number diagnosed rose from 136 in 2014, 153 in 2015, to 159 in 2016. However, the number diagnosed each year will not be the same as the number infected, as people may be infected a number of years before being diagnosed.”

“Overall 23 people (20 men, 3 women) were notified with AIDS in 2016, compared to nine people in 2015. Of the 23, 16 (70%) were MSM, 4 (17%) were infected heterosexually, 2 men (9%) were infected by either sex with another man or injecting drug use, and for one person (4%) the means of transmission was not reported.

“Twelve (52%) were of European ethnicity, 4 (18%) Māori, 6 (26%) Asian, and 1 (4%) Pacific Islander. Sixteen people had their AIDS diagnosis within three months of being diagnosed

with HIV and would probably not have had the opportunity for antiretroviral treatment to control progression of their HIV infection.”

Only in New Zealand: Fairy Tale Ending for Teenage Murderer

Indian dairy owner’s teenage killer paroled and sent back to school

A teenager who stabbed and killed an Indian dairy worker in West Auckland has been released from a youth justice facility.

Arun Kumar, 57, was killed in June 2014 after being stabbed by a then-14-year-old and his 12-year-old friend.

The teenager, who was granted permanent name suppression in High Court, was found guilty of Kumar’s manslaughter [NOT murder, of course] and jailed for six years, but later released on appeal.

Just Like That!

The racist, shameful, frigging judges in the “Court of Appeal ruled the sentencing judge failed to take into full consideration the effects a traumatic brain injury had on his behaviour on the day of Kumar’s death.”

If the teenage murderer had a brain injury, why wasn’t  he kept under some kind of supervision?

Why is he now set free and sent back to school, where he can kill again?

How wealthy/ well-connected  is his family?

Why did the court fail to take into account the victim’s right to live?

Wasn’t Arun Kumar conveniently eliminated from the “justice” equation because he was an Indian, and therefore expendable?

“What did I do wrong? Why do you have kill so many Indians in New Zealand with impunity?” Slain Henderson dairy owner Arun Kumar, 57. Photo: supplied/via stuff NZ

Myrtle rust spreads to new region

A positive detection of myrtle rust has been made in the Waikato region.

The fungal plant disease was identified in a small number of plants at a nursery in Te Kuiti. The new location was found as a result of MPI tracing sales of plants from another positive nursery.

MPI has personnel on the ground in Te Kuiti and restrictions are in place on the movement of risk goods from the property. The property will be treated with fungicide.

As with all other finds to date, MPI will continue to search surrounding areas for signs of the fungus.

This new find, along with a further 3 properties in Taranaki, brings the total number of confirmed infected properties to 16 nationally.

The majority of properties are in Taranaki with just 2 confirmed in Northland and the one new Waikato find.  http://www.mpi.govt.nz/news-and-resources/media-releases/myrtle-rust-find-in-new-region/

Myrtle rust: Number of infected properties rises to 12  — [Bad Karma]

Myrtle rust is a serious fungal disease that affects plants in the myrtle family. Plants in this family include pōhutukawa and mānuka. The first detection of the disease in mainland New Zealand was at a Northland nursery in early May 2017. The disease is likely to affect some of our iconic native plants as well as commercially-grown species.  [MPI]

Myrtle rust has been found in Kerikeri in Northland and in Waitara, Taranaki. It is also widespread on Raoul Island in the Kermadec group, about 1,100km to the north-east of New Zealand. Myrtle rust (Austropuccinia psidii) is also known as guava rust and eucalyptus rust. The fungus attacks various species of plants in the Myrtaceae family, also known as the myrtle family. It is found in many parts of the world including New Caledonia and all along Australia’s eastern seaboard. Myrtle rust spores are microscopic and can easily spread across large distances by wind, or via insects, birds, people, or machinery. Source: info@mpi.govt.nz

Myrtle rust fond on at least 12 properties

“Four further Taranaki properties have tested positive for myrtle rust, bringing the number of positive locations nationally to 12.

“At this time, the disease has only been recorded in 2 regions – Northland and Taranaki. 8 of the affected properties are plant nurseries or retailers/distributors, and it has been detected in four private gardens.

“This response is rapidly changing as large numbers of members of the public report through suspected finds. To date, Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) has received some 380 reports of suspected symptoms through its 0800 number and the number of affected properties is expected to grow.”  http://www.mpi.govt.nz/news-and-resources/media-releases/myrtle-rust-response-media-update-22-may-2017/

Since NASA can’t even fly a condom, would it be safe to think of Mars landing as just another wet dream??

NASA’s Wanaka super duper pressure balloon (aka, the Condom) has crashed just over a week into its anticipated 100-day journey.

“The data strongly suggests the balloon has developed a leak [just three days after its lunch.] This is an unfortunate development in our test flight, but we’re gaining some important data from this mission that will apply to future flights,” said the wasteful agency’s balloon incompetent programme director, Debbie Fairbrother.
