  • Jeremy Eade,

    Dickens was a hero to one particular Russian novelist. It's quite a story. His books sweat even in translation. Raskolnikov, a movie that would hurt.

    Y'know Ian - I've never met - or heard- or otherwise learned about ANYONE eating Egretta alba or any other kind of localised egret...the bird/s, while largish, never seem to have been targetted as kai...feathers, yes, especially breeding plumage ( us primitive natives caught 'em, plucked the feathers and released the adult birds in time for them to continue their breeding cycle. It was only the people with guns who decided killing was the best way to harvest....feathers...))

  • diversitynz,

    Check out what we're doing at Diversityworks. Self-employment makes a lot of sense when compared with these do-gooding charlatans. Not for everyone, but certainly levels playing fields.

    He’s also on record saying Workbridge – the usual go-to employment agency for the disabled – isn’t much cop.

    That's been my experience too. Although Deaf Employment consultants don't seem to fare much better. It's more be a case of over-supply of talent and no demand from employers for it.

    At least some attempt is made by these organisations, which is more than you can say for the mainstream employment and temping agencies. From their perspective, one disability is a problem. Two makes you for all intents unemployable.
