  • Hard News: Media3: Standards Showdown,

    Some years ago before I was a parent I found myself in a discussion with a bunch of academic high achievers with secondary school age children. They agreed that different schools were appropriate for different children and that that is why the younger son or daughter may not attend the same school as the elder sibling. Academic standards were important but not the be all and end all of choosing a school.

  • Hard News: Back to mediocrity,

    My experience of some great stadiums = beer is always crap, food worse than 3am servo hotdog. Eden Park has going for it (in my limited recent experience) simple ingress egress, no loud music at every pause in the game (hello rugby at the MCG).

    Now all we need is a 2.30 Saturday kick off and we will be happy.
