    Snap! NZ = 2 degrees of separation...

    the Silvan of course like so much of your fair city is sadly no more

    The building is still there though,
    looking much the same as it did after Feb 22+...
    But you know how those two roll
    when yer served lemons make lemonade
    they've gone back to the niche demo business
    one of the few people actually reusing rather than dumping elements of old houses.

    I recycled the feel of the original Ferry Road Demolition logo I did for them decades ago in the new endeavour's signage & logo - they also recycle interesting wood into great frames for Riccarton Market.

    ...and yes I know deconstruction is about concepts and critique not buildings, but what better word to evolve and weather the erosion of language that has accompanied the post-quakes environment...

    issues facing the news media

    Any intimation of how a signed TPPA will affect your new model approach and modern news 'ownership' and subsequent enforcing any property breaches within the signees and beyond?

    Interesting times....

    ps Hi Al - I think we met through your cousin (and my old mate) GT at the Silvan some years ago...

    I understand Osborne is an 'Asset Manager' up north, if he sticks with National there won't be much for him to do, judging by their take on 'assets' - it'll be back to weightlifting... and the family beauty business

  • Hard News: The greening of the Red Zone,

    drone's-eye view of Avonside 'redzone'

    from this Press article

    and here is an article about the redzone tree survey

    and yet another EQC head jumps ship before they are held accountable

    Police culture and competence...

    Top cop 'forgets' crime files in cupboard!!
    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11421129

    Yet Rodney Hide weighs in on on how dirty police cars are - apparently that really depresses him!!!
    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/opinion/news/article.cfm?c_id=466&objectid=11421086

    and I see court documents have 'disappeared' from files on the Pike River case
    http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/67466264/Pike-River-court-file-goes-missing

    seems that having systems is no guarantee of people following them.
    be nice if police and justice always extended a helping hand rather than sitting on them.

    What do you think we should do?

    Drag them, kicking and screaming, out of denial and into the 21st century!

  • Hard News: An unacceptable failure of care,

    Boys named sue...?
    Please delete my earlier comment if it is in any way a possible legal impediment, but I would really like to know if there was less of an inquiry because one of the boys' fathers was a policeman, that he might have been at the same station as the Child Protection Team, to my mind, makes it worse, if it is true that none of the boys' parents were approached formally or in any recorded fashion (ie a paper trail or notes)...
    Hearing Greg Connor try and say they were overworked and under resourced, when they didn't even do the basics, makes my blood boil - especially if they could have just talked to the parent-officer on site!

  • Hard News: An unacceptable failure of care, in reply to Sacha,

    Rozzer beef…

    Danyl also agrees they need to be sacked.

    Sounds like these ‘old cops’ didn’t think this child protection squad supplied the ‘better work stories’ they wanted – but what message does that send the ‘new cops’ ?
    https://www.newcops.co.nz/about-the-job/better-work-stories

    Do we know if any of these police have children themselves?
    I’m thinking not, as they have shown no empathy or compassion …
    or even any clue – given the number they ignored!

  • Capture: Movement, in reply to JacksonP,

    So just got the early morning traffic on the move.

    Good to see that everyone is staying on their correct side of the road...
