  • Hard News: Te Reo Māori in schools:…,

    I think some Maori should be a part of basic NZ literacy

    I was speaking with a friend the other day. He said that his Illiteracy didn’t bother him to much becouse he was good with numbers. He said he told his accountant that his cafe business turned over 1.3 million last year, and that the accountant told him he was only a few tens of thousands out.

    She rapidly learned a lot of words you don’t find in dictionaries.

    I went to a Maori primary school. My pronunciation is good. Vocabulary, not so much. But my tertiary education was at Northland polytechnic. Which unlearned some of what I thought I know about language in context. I lucked in when I landed at New Zealand’s most unprestigious art school.

    I think the milk might have been getting ladled out to Russell and his cohort, for much the same reasons the Japanese hand out whale meat to school children.

    I see, I am going to have to talk at lots of peoples people. But eventually, with every one talking at each other, and with Kim Dot Com throwing his weight around, somebody is going to talk back at us. Which will be a start. I’ve got a good feeling about this.

    Update! I have just been talking at Kim Dot Com’s interface. Kim is enthusiastic about throwing his weight at this project. What can I say. Wow, just wow!

    Ok, I have my first expression of interest or should I say dissatisfaction with the certified burners available in New Zealand, besides Lucy.

    I am now threatening to become the agent for funky wood burners, and no, I will not be wear my undies on the outside.

    So who would like a funky wood burner?

    If I see some interest here, I will conduct a serios bit of market research. Then we shall think about sticking it to the man, and jumping thru every hoop it takes to bring funky wood burners to the people.

    Rather than shouting theater, the scriptwriter wrote. “This is inappropriate, heads must roll! Rolland, yet another juvenile electrical engineer, fresh out of design school, had also been fucking around with the sound system..

    Linda really likes the little Dovre vintage that you mentioned, Lucy. And she is suggesting it to one of her friends. It is cute, like you said. That would be a much more difficult stove to build in an engineering workshop.

    Maybe that could be a candidate for a consortium approach. If there is enough interest from New Zealand , the overseas manufacturers might come to the party, and get there burners compliant here.

    But that’s not the point, I know. I am just going build a big wood fire kiln over in the back yard, and I might put salt in it. Thats going to learn them a couple of things, or three.

    Drawing long straws, from your half lived notions. “Cesium, potassium and iodine rich animal droppings, prove the existence” You stake your reputation on this crap!

    They look pretty simple and inexpensive to fabricate. If it only costs around 10 k to have emission tested. We wouldn't need to many interested party's to make it worth while.
