New Pike video shows no sign of inferno

“New footage from deep inside Pike River Mine shows no sign of an inferno or underground fire.

“The footage, obtained by Newshub, also shows what appears to be a pair of spectacles belonging to Ben Rockhouse, the only miner working in that area who wore glasses.

“Filmed in 2011, just over a month after the fourth 2010 explosion, the footage shows the coal face of the mine, as deep as operations had got.”   http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2017/06/new-pike-footage-shows-no-sign-of-inferno.html

Myrtle rust fungus found in Bay of Plenty

Posted by te2ataria on June 13, 2017

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

*****

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.

How the super rich swindle, harm, humiliate, dispossess, exclude… and starve you

Posted by te2ataria on May 17, 2017

The Most Heavily Censored Blog in New Zealand  [Watch Out for Tsunamis of Bad Karma, Mr Ingrish!!]

-oo-8-oo-

Sent by a reader:

Super rich depend on ideologies and behaviors that enhance and sustain their hegemony

The following excerpts are from a newly published study ‘Preferences for group dominance track and mediate the effects of macro-level social inequality and violence across societies’ conducted by academics in Denmark, Norway, Harvard University in the United States and Victoria University in Wellington. ).

Social Dominance Orientation (SDO) – Inequality and Political Unaccountability

The greater the inequality of resources and power, the greater level of political unaccountability, corruption, and lack of democracy and rule of law we expect, because these phenomena precisely signal and enforce that the lion’s share of resources goes to the dominant group by virtue of its power and greater formidability.

Willingness to enforce group hegemony violently to sustain hierarchy

[…] macrolevel inequality and violence were associated with greater individual-level support of group hegemony. Crucially, this individual-level support, rather than cultural-societal norms, was in turn uniquely associated with greater racism, sexism, welfare opposition, and even willingness to enforce group hegemony violently by participating in ethnic persecution of subordinate out-groups. These findings suggest that societal inequality is reflected in people’s minds as dominance motives that underpin ideologies and actions that ultimately sustain group-based hierarchy.

[…] higher-ranked individuals enjoy privileged access to resources, territory, mates, and ultimately greater reproductive success.

The study is posted at Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences (PNASS)

Let’s put that in context:

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.

Update 5 – Te Anau Milford Highway crash

Wednesday, 22 March 2017 – 10:09am
This release can be attributed to Southern Area Commander Inspector Joel Lamb.

This is a horrific incident that has impacted a large amount of people and that of the Te Anau and Milford communities.

Police can confirm that the vehicles involved were a passenger bus carrying tourists and a rented smaller vehicle.  The collision caused a fire which enveloped both vehicles.

Police, Fire and Ambulance worked together to secure the scene to extinguish the fire, treat the wounded and assist those affected by the crash.  The scene of the crash was cleared late last night.

Both vehicles were substantially damaged as a result of both the crash and the subsequent fire.

All occupants of the bus were able to exit the bus.  Several of these occupants required first aid at the scene and later at a local medical centre.

Witnesses reported to Police that there were two individuals in the smaller vehicle.  Police are working to identify all individuals in the vehicle but can confirm that there were no survivors from that vehicle.

Due to the damage to the vehicle it will take the Police Disaster Victim Identification Team some time to positively identify any individuals in the vehicle. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/update-5-te-anau-milford-highway-crash

Road massacre in Huntly: Australian violinist and two stepsons killed, while his partner and her daughter barely escaped death

The Australian family decimated in the deadly car crash had just arrived in New Zealand on Monday and had been on their way to visit relatives for the holidays.

Australian violinist Stephen Phillips and his two stepsons, aged 12 and 14, were killed instantly when the [most probably defective] rental car they were travelling in collided with a truck on State Highway 1 at Huntly on Monday afternoon.

The boys’ mother was rushed to hospital in a critical condition along with her daughter Tessa, 9, who barely survived the crash.

“There’s bits of car scattered hundreds of metres from where the crash happened. It’s everywhere, as far as the eye can see,” said an eye-witness.

Phillips, 54, was First Violinist with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) and his partner, Belinda Williams, 40, was a casual guest musician for the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and played the viola.

“Stephen had been a member of the QSO since 1987 and Belinda has played with the QSO since 2002.”   http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/84441039/ages-released-of-three-males-who-died-in-huntly-crash
