    just the facts...

    ...how hard is it for us as a species to understand that everything we have comes straight from nature, and when we die we’re going straight back to nature, and that we are inescapably a part of nature? Or that when nature no longer finds us useful we’ll be discarded, just like countless other species before us? Our survival as a species depends on that understanding and acceptance of those facts.

    Excellent summation - could the Education Dept see that that is printed on all our school exercise books in future!
    Oh, and given to every politician, too!

    art official dissemination...

    Engineers recommendations...

    and the hits keep coming...

    The Christchurch Art Gallery will not reopen until the middle of next year (2013), the gallery's director says.
    Jenny Harper said engineering reports indicated the gallery had suffered structural damage in the earthquakes.
    ...
    "Due to the extent and the complexity of the likely repair work, it has become clear that the gallery will not be able to reopen as early as we had hoped," Harper said.

    They are looking at maybe using CoCA's premises - so what has happened to The Canterbury Society of Arts one wonders...

    Heart Earth...

    It’s a big picture.

    We live within such a thin blue layer...
    Why do 'we' seem so hellbent on screwing it up?

  • Hard News: Finally, the Teapot Tape?, in reply to Dylan Reeve,

    mission accomplished...

    Well Key always said it was about the principle, so perhaps he was telling the truth about that much.

    Key's an investment banker johnny, so I'm sure that when he's talking with Banks he probably meant the principal and whatever interest and leverage he could gain...

    ...and I'm guessing these recordings weren't stored on Mega Upload then...

    hmmm, Mu the mythical lost continent of the Pacific...

    problem solved...

    In any case, I’m not clear how more autonomy would
    fix Christchurch City Council’s current problems.

    Three little letters - eco!
    auto-economy
    The City Council will shortly announce a new civic venture
    (a cunning byproduct of the ongoing communications revamp)
    they will sell shock absorbers!
    in two relevant styles: vehicular and psychic
    the current moral malaise at the CCC driving the latter
    and everyone else driving the former over, frankly, shocking roads!
    The auto industry has already reported a huge rise in
    the demand for these auto ameliorators -
    This new City Holdings endeavour will be known
    coyly as "Hope Springs Eternal for a vibrant City"...

    ...it is not known if Tony Marryatt has yet applied to be a director.

    Scorched earth polity?

    Why the fuck was Brendon Burns placed so low on the list that Chch Central has no effective opposition advocacy?

    which results today in Brendon Burns quits politics... , the electorate office is abandoned, signless and empty, no reminder in the central area that once Labour cared. Cosgrove is now a List MP and could've been seconded to occupy that site and keep the flag flying, but no all the earthquake issues have been dumped on Lianne Daziel (no relation) who already has her hands full with her own electorate's major problems - which the Council and CERA seem to be steadfastly ignoring as well...


    also interesting to note the members of the Council's:

    CEO PERFORMANCE REVIEW AND REMUNERATION SUBCOMMITTEE
    The Mayor (Chair)
    Councillor Helen Broughton
    Councillor Tim Carter
    Councillor Barry Corbett
    Councillor Glenn Livingstone
    Councillor Sue Wells
    Terms of Reference
    To manage a performance agreement with the Chief Executive and his ongoing relationship with the Council, and recommend to the Council reviews to the remuneration package of the Chief Executive Officer, taking into account advice from an external adviser.
