Lead has lowered your IQ, and E. coli could kill you!

Once again, who needs clean water in New Zealand??

Raised levels of lead found in five Dunedin primary schools

The Southern District Health Board say they are investigating raised levels of lead in five Dunedin primary schools: Bathgate Park, George Street Normal, Mornington, North East Valley and Opoho, a report said.

“Medical officer of health Marian Poore said the highest sample level was 595mg of lead per kg of soil, which is above the recommended government standard for home gardens (210mg) but below [the totally arbitrary level set] for public parks (880mg).”

Principals’ Federation criticise delay on reporting lead levels

The Principals’ Federation say they are alarmed the health authorities have taken about 16 months before telling schools that soil on school grounds are contaminated with raised levels of lead.

“Bathgate Park was one of the schools affected, and principal Whetu Cormack told Morning Report he was only told by the Ministry of Education about the results yesterday,” a report said.

Lead exposure destroys your life
“Children with elevated blood-lead levels at age 11 ended up as adults with lower cognitive function and lower-status occupations than their parents…”

“The findings, published [in March] in JAMA, were based on a study that followed about 1,000 children born in the early 1970s in the coastal city of Dunedin, New Zealand. More than half were tested for lead in 1983, and nearly three decades later, those who’d had higher blood-lead levels as children were more likely to have lower IQs and to wind up lower on the socioeconomic ladder. Both associations remained even after researchers accounted for the children’s IQs, their mothers’ IQs and their social-class backgrounds.”

The dairy industry gives a new meaning to Golden Bay
“While monitoring water quality at Te Waikoropupū Springs Friends of Golden Bay noticed that where Fish Creek flows into the Springs reserve it repeatedly had an unpleasant appearance and smell after rain events.”

“Bearing in mind the recent outbreak of illness in Hawke’s Bay, we initially tested for both Campylobacter and E.coli. We took samples during rain events when the problem was evident. We are glad to report no Campylobacter was found. However, the picture with E.coli is a different matter. We present the results in the table below,” say Friends of Golden Bay.

E-coli levels from farm runoff under rain events will always be high and exceed drinking and swimming water standards.” and “It is common to get between 1,000-10,000 E.coli/100ml, depending on the density of cows and timing of when the cows were last in the paddock. It is like where we were at with dairy shed effluent 20 years ago.”

If clean water is “fundamental to the citizens of this country” why isn’t it properly protected by law?

If  “there is nothing more fundamental to the citizens of this country than clean water,” then why, oh why, have you failed after decades of mis-government to properly protect it by law, Mr Attorney-General?

The gastro outbreak in Havelock North which sickened more than 5,000 in August 2016 “is unacceptable for a developed country,” the government has finally admitted.

Attorney-General Chris Finlayson, who has just woken up from his Zombie state hibernation, has told all councils to take note of the official findings [or else what?] of an initial report that has criticised Hastings District Council and Hawke’s Bay Regional Council for failing to safeguard the town’s drinking water.

“All local authorities need immediately – not wait until Stage 2, immediately – check their processes. There is nothing more fundamental to the citizens of this country than clean water.”

Pike River mine families shafted again by NZ government

Posted by te2ataria on May 1, 2017

On November 24, 2010, we wrote:

Did you see the F**KING PM [John Key] on the News YESTERDAY?

His face looked as pale as panda feces; his body language said it all. He knew  decision to seal the fate of the miners was already made. The government was not going to get any of them out of the blasted mine alive, and they needed a “closure” at explosive speeds!

“It is our belief that no-one has survived and everyone will have perished,” police superintendent Gary Knowles told reporters. He knew the Army had blown up the mine on PM’s order to have an excuse for wrapping up the rescue operations in Pike River coalmine.

NZ Army killed two Australians, two Britons, a South African and 24 New Zealanders. [Zombie Democracy: Apartheid Fort NZ Bog]

 

‘Inside the Pike River mine – what police never showed the families’ —Newshub

The video shows a robot going down the mine’s tunnel.

It has to dodge a hanging pipe and it comes across one of its own kind – the wreckage of a capsized robot that failed – before dodging its way past.

It’s very wet and the footage shows the robot needs some help, with two men inside too.

Wearing Mines Rescue uniforms and using breathing apparatus, they work casually and without gloves using a pocketknife and duct tape to make a piece of cardboard into a roof.

The robot’s journey ends when it gets to an abandoned loader as its way is blocked.

It gets into trouble – overheating – and emitting what appears to be smoke.

Until now, this video has been kept from the families of the 29 men killed, like Dean Dunbar, father of 17-year-old Joe Dunbar.

The footage is six years old, date-stamped March 15, 2011 – three months after the final explosion, and held by police ever since.

“How could they do this to Joseph and the other guys? Why?” Mr Dunbar says.

“They’ve had the footage; we haven’t.”

The Government, authorities and the mine’s controllers have always maintained it’s too dangerous to enter, which Mr Dunbar rejects.

“They created a situation of absolute danger; they made it look and sound explosive. It’s not,” he says.

“We’re going to peel back that litany of lies and expose it for what it is.”

The robot was in the mine’s access tunnel, known as a “the drift”, which was 2.3km long.

The wreckage it goes past is one of two Army robots, abandoned at either 800m or 1050m.

It gets 1570m down the tunnel, to the loader used by Russell Smith – a survivor who got out.

The final 730m are unexplored.

The families say this is crucial, because at 1900m there is an electrical substation that could have evidence, and also because survivor Daniel Rockhouse escaped from about that point as well – meaning there are potentially bodies left behind.

The mine was in police control at the time of the video, but police say it was not passed onto either the families or the Royal Commission because “it was assessed as having no evidential value”.

Mr Dunbar says that with no explosion, it proves going into the tunnel is safe and always has been.

“We shouldn’t have to convince the good people of New Zealand that your Government has been lying to you for so long, and we shouldn’t have to. These guys deserve better, mate,” he says.

Why would Easter road kills be any different to hundreds of others throughout the year?

Smoke Screen: “Police to investigate causes of Easter road deaths”

“According to Ministry of Transport provisional figures, there were two deaths over the period from 4pm Thursday to 6am this morning [Tuesday.]”

What the number according to the perfidious police [syn: “lying bastards”]? What happened to the other deaths that were reported by them?

As for the actual number, as many as 9 road fatalities may have occurred over the holiday period. However, the UNCENSORED death reports were as follows:

One person was killed in a crash on the Riverton-Wallacetown in Southland on Sunday. “Twenty one-year-old Conor Drake, of Otautau, died after a crash between a four wheel drive and a Fonterra tanker.”

A pedestrian was killed after being struck by a car on the side of Tapuaeroa Rd at Ruatoria near Gisborne, just before 1.00 am on Sunday.

How Ruatoria man Nelson Hari was killed

“Police are investigating exactly how Ruatoria man Nelson Hari, a shearer and keen hunter, came to his death as he walked home about 12.40am on Sunday on a dark country road after drinking with friends.”  http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11840094

On Saturday, a man was killed while participating in a motorbike race in Methven, about an hour from Christchurch. But he doesn’t qualify as a “Grateful Dead” and will not be included in the official road toll.

What’s the excuse for the disqualification? “The road was closed to the public at the time [!?]”

The point of this official chicanery? To somehow claim credit for “improved” Easter road toll compared with last year’s, despite much worst even official figures year-to date. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/police-investigate-causes-easter-road-deaths

Moderators are aware of at least 16 serious crashes with up to 20 people hospitalized with serious to critical injuries. Based on local information, as many as five of the injured are, sadly, “highly unlikely to pull through.”

Let wait and see, if any would be reported.

To Auckland Councillor Cathy Casey: This shop’s sign is perfectly acceptable!

An Auckland Councillor has laid a complaint with the Human Rights Commission over a sign in the window of an Avondale shop banning people wearing burkas from entering.

Burka does NOT represent Islam. They are perverse vestiges of the Ottoman Empire.

Woman can dress modestly and appear perfectly decent, as required in Islam and Catholicism, without having to look ridiculous!

Apart from the obvious safety reasons, concerning both the wearers and everyone else around them, burkas are demeaning to women; they belong to the 19th century Ottoman Empire.

10 fatal crashes short of $4.5billion

Posted by te2ataria on April 7, 2017

Heavily Censored Police Road Fatality Reports

  • Friday’s Update: ONLY ONE vehicle-related fatality report allowed by police today, as of posting, despite multiple serious crashes that have been reported locally.
  • Thursday’s Update: ONE vehicle-related fatality report  (second cyclist killed by a truck in two days) allowed by police, as of posting.

NZ’s road crash costs just a dozen or so fatal crashes shy of $4.5b [but how accurate are those official figures?]

Total social cost of motor vehicle injury crashes in 2015 was about $3.79 billion, at June 2016 prices, according to the Ministry of Transport (Minitru).

In addition, there are an estimated 220,460 non-injury crashes, valued at a further $0.66 billion. This gives a total social cost of all motor vehicle crashes in 2015 of $4.45 billion (increased from $4.13 billion in 2014). These estimates include the costs associated with both reported and [estimated] non-reported cases, and allegedly covers all injuries recorded by NZ Police, hospitals and ACC.

Loss of life/ life quality due to permanent impairments accounted for approximately 91 per cent of the total social cost of injury crashes, while vehicle damage accounted for about five percent with other costs accounting  for the remaining four percent.

Average Social Cost per Reported  Crash:

  • Fatal: $4.73 million
  • Serious: $912,000
  • Minor: $99,000

Average Social Cost per Reported Injury:

  • Fatal: $4,180,000
  • Serious: 776,000
  • Minor: 77,000

Guria (1995) estimated that the number of non-injury crashes is 8.4 times the number of minor injury crashes.

“Techno Economic Services, which is based in South Auckland, won the council project in the middle of last year, despite never having provided waste management or construction services before. The company was not a registered company at the time it won the tender. It registered with the Companies Office several months after securing the Franz Josef job.”
