    In other neckbreaking News…
    I have heard a rumour that TVNZ has taken up the baton from TV3 and are considering “Re-branding” “One News”.
    “We are looking at making news more of an instant injection of news on demand” an informed insider told me “The news you want when you need it, a bit like your morning coffee” she told me. “Thinking along these lines we have come up with some exiting ways forward in brand recognition, instant information about things you want to be informed about , and as such have come up with a symbiotic approach to recognitional nomenclature invoking our commitment to News”
    The shortlist of names, I am reliably informed is headed by a well canvassed favourite of staff and looks to be the new name of new News…
    NewsHit
    “I think people will see it as new” she said.
    TVNZ

    Which brings us, neatly to George Washington Carver, as the humble peanut is also a legume. In his 1916 bulletin, "How to Grow the Peanut and 105 Ways of Preparing it for Human Consumption" Carver gave a short overview of peanut crop production and contained a list of recipes from other agricultural bulletins, cookbooks, magazines, and newspapers, such as the Peerless Cookbook, Good Housekeeping, and Berry's Fruit Recipes. He did not, however, include Peanut Butter which led to a conspiracy theory leading to a CIA operation involving none other than Stan Smith.

    Your aggressive driver note reminded me that I saw yet another cyclist down on the side of the road on Tamaki Drive today, covered in someone's coat and a crowd attending them.

    Certainly hope they were OK, a quick scan of the news hasn't shown anything...
