Three out of four of migrants arriving were non-New Zealand citizens

Some 130,400 migrants (many of them Chinese) arrived in NZ and 58,400 departed the country so far this year.

Meanwhile, a record 3.6 million tourists visited New Zealand in the year to May, leaving behind hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste that NZ can’t cope with.

“Migration, in conjunction with sluggish supply of new housing and associated land use restrictions, may have had a significant effect on house prices in New Zealand,” said a 2014 Treasury report [and they have stayed silent since.

Some are reaping the rewards of record immigration numbers, but they are not the ordinary Kiwis

Govt ill-prepared for immigration boom – survey

“New Zealanders overwhelmingly favour a cap on immigration, with many saying the country is unprepared to cope with a surge in numbers, according to a new survey.” http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/333483/govt-ill-prepared-for-immigration-boom-survey

Despite various spins on the social impact of unmanageable number of foreigners coming to NZ, record migrations and tourism have severely impacted the housing crisis.

AND, YES, 3.6 million tourists driving on our poorly-designed roads cause additional congestion, deaths, and injuries, as well as producing much more pollution.

Myrtle rust fungus found in Bay of Plenty

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.

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.”

Water thefts reported in dry Mangawhai

Desperately dry weather is bringing out the best – and worst – in residents in north Auckland.

A Mangawhai Police spokesperson says there have been no official reports, but a resident did make an informal complaint.

Filling up with 10,000 litres before going away for the weekend, the resident returned to find an empty tank, but filed no official report with police.

If New Zealand is a happier country than Australia…

Posted by te2ataria on January 18, 2017

Sent by a reader, edited by Moderator N.

Then why, oh why, every kiwi dreams of moving their shit across the ditch???

Happy Planet Index has ranked Australia as the 105th happiest country, out of 140, and New Zealand, wait for it, 67 places higher at 38th.

Why is it then everyone and their uncles in this country dream of moving to Australia one day?

[The pathetic, totally discredited World Happiness Report, most probably paid for out of the UN funds by a certain senior official, had previously ranked NZ in the top 10 happiest country, but just one place ahead of Australia.]

NZ scored poorly on the ecological footprint, ranking 119th, but ahead of Australia at 139th out of 140.

The swine-sewage-infested Luxembourg came last on the ecological footprint front, and was the 139th candidate overall, just one place ahead of the “worst” country, Chad.

“The Happy Planet Index measures what matters: sustainable wellbeing for all” according to its website.

“Wealthy Western countries, often seen as the standard of success, do not rank highly on the Happy Planet Index.”

“Instead, several countries in Latin America and the Asia Pacific region lead the way by achieving high life expectancy and wellbeing with much smaller Ecological Footprints.

“The Happy Planet Index provides a compass to guide nations, and shows that it is possible to live good lives without costing the Earth.”

2. Mexico  [Is Trump a factor?]
3. Colombia [YKM?]
4. Vanuatu  [Only if you can,t live without earthquakes!]

Only in New Zealand: Harbourmaster stood down for helping to save orca

Posted by te2ataria on December 15, 2016

Sent by a reader

Department of Conservation unable to protect orca in NZ waters

A Coromandel harbourmaster has been stood down after helping to free an entangled orca using a Waikato Regional Council vessel.

The rescue attempt took place after the Department of Conservation (DOC) failed to send their people to free the drowning whale, said Dr Ingrid Visser of the Orca Research Trust.

“The breeding female was trapped by a cray pot line for 16 hours before locals acted,” she said.

Visser called DOC’s inaction “inexcusable”.

“The Coromandel Peninsula has had at least three orca entanglements that I know of, so the Department of Conservation should be well prepared for this.”

The harbourmaster has been taken off operational duties until further notice, said Waikato Regional Council chief executive Vaughan [butt] Payne.

New Zealand has the highest rate of orca entanglement in cray pots in the world, Visser said.

“There are about 100 female orca around New Zealand and here we have a breeding age female left to fend for herself with the help of her family – it’s deplorable.”

Gail Thwaites, one of numerous people who had attempted to contact DOC about the orca, felt disgusted.

“DOC didn’t do their job.

“I think it’s disgusting that the harbourmaster was stood down. He was acting in good faith with good intentions to save this whale. I’d love to know what the story would be if nothing was done and the whale died.”

Nurse steals money from elderly patient with dementia

Eva Martha Harrison, 63,  a registered Hamilton nurse stole hundreds of dollars from a rest home patient with dementia.  It’s not known how many other patients the  has ripped off in her 44-year career.

“She was fired from that job in July 2014, one month after the theft. She subsequently applied for a position at the Waikato District Health Board.”

She was employed despite having an array of previous convictions including assault, theft, DUI… In fact, she could have been a mass murderer and still work as a nurse without any hesitation by Waikato District Health Board.

Retired kiwi judge Roy Wade  has suggested American officials are becoming cynical of New Zealand’s growing use of “discharge without conviction” law.
