Another confused editorial from the Herald this morning.
Firstly it says:
Some may benefit from better public transport, but many would gain little or no direct or indirect advantage.
and the a couple of paragraphs later:
Virtually overnight, there would be less road congestion. Equally, to cater for those induced to leave their cars at home, planners would have to ensure that convenient, quick, reliable, comfortable and affordable public transport options were available.
So those that are induced to leave their cars at home would benefit from better public transport directly, while those travelling on the less congested roads would have an indirect advantage. Doesn't that contradict the first paragraph I've just quoted?
In some ways it's a shame that both axes are rubbish as looking at the plot from Danyl, if you take the points to the right of 25 on the x-axis (estimated class size) it appears to show a strong inverse correlation between class size and achievement.
and who gave Dotcom the bank account number details to deposit the cheques into said account?
or did the cheques get to Team Banksie and were deposited by a minion while skiing
Possibly a side-track, but if the port workers jobs are contracted out, would they be contractors or employees?
regulations about toasters and companies register etc should be separated out from the strategic planning element.
Watch out for another leaky building type crisis in a few years after the ex-Economic Development people put pressure on the ex-Housing people to lower building standards – all in the name of productivity of course.
There will be similar pressures on the ex-Dept of Labour people as OSH standards drop, again in the name of productivity. Of course the poor consequences of the merger won’t be seen until after the next election…
Despite many words being written by Auckland Council officers, there is really only lip service being paid to building new cycle lanes. Take Ngahue Drive (borders Stonefields) as an example - this road was recently realigned to be 2 (narrow) lanes each way.
As a result there is nowhere for cyclists to ride safely - not even a footpath if travelling north-east. Surely it would not have been a big expense to have created a cycle-lane at the same time as the realignment.
He says Mr Dotcom is not a flight risk, although he has access to helicopters and private jets and has passports in at least three nationalities under different names ...
All that because of unproven allegations.
Not quite sure what you're saying here - aren't they unproven because they haven't been to Court yet, so any raid on any person/property by Police will be because of unproven allegations?
did Felicity Price or her company CPR have any input in any way into the work she will be reviewing?
possibly yes, given this:
Felicity has resigned from communications company Carter Price Rennie to carry out this independent audit.
Why the need to resign?
This could be applied to many things this year, but fortunately not the RWC Final, although the opening night almost was.
