    Their opening hours are in the last link above - I am intrigued as to why your website links would direct to a UK 'opening hours' site for a pharmacy?
    (not that I followed it, just saw that it was - are you Annette Bot?)

    When ACT is your only friend you gotta realize you are in a bad way.

    Seymour seems to think that Uber /’ride sharing’ will stop congestion on the morning commute for Aucklanders – I can see how that might go down well with shallow thinkers but I don't think it is uber’s target market.
    …and it is a bit rich him accusing someone else (Bridges) of being ‘baby-faced’ when he is still metaphorically in nappies himself…

    Death cab for cutie..

    interesting that they turned comments off after an hour!

    Also worth noting that an early NZ broadband competitor, Woosh, ceased existing last month.

  • Speaker: Are we seeing the end of MSM,…,

    a tale of two stories – more a paste rather than a reliable source!!
    Both The Herald and Stuff are running the same story about ‘azodicarbonamide’ with the same headline:
    The yoga-mat chemical’s quiet fast-food exit
    - only Stuff acknowledges a primary source – it says its from the Washington Post – but a search there reveals no such story!
    Further searching reveals Bloomberg– to be the original source – and the author Deena Shanker has worked for them since April this year.

    Virtually all other web uses of this fresh story either credits or links to Bloomberg why would Stuff just drop a Washington Post credit in there?*
    (actually some other news aggregators already link to the Stuff story so that just spreads the confusion!)

    Is Bloomberg paid for reuse?

    Personally I think any ‘credit’ for source on any stories picked up should be a weblink to source which a) verifies and b) possibly adds more detail that may have been omitted – but hat’s just me I guess…


    *Perhaps Stuff are confusing the source for this ‘Food Babe’ story from last year at The Washington Post ?

    I guess we already have HONC and STONC!*

    *Herald On-line News Content and Stuff On-line News Content
    though STUFF may actually be Social Transmission of Unremittingly Fluffy Facts

  • Hard News: All right, then – take me to Rio,

    As to that Aussie swimming sledger - no surprises there I guess - but I thought that kind of behaviour was up there with doping as a something contrary to the Olympic sporting ethos...
    Maybe they'll offer 'Bullying' as a demonstration sport at the next Olympics - though those seem to have fallen away since Barcelona in 1992.
