Sorry bad unix pun...
I hope RNZ's servers are up for this one,
It just got Boingboinged, via Juha Saarinen :)
Sounds like Winston's just played the media big time...
Radio New Zealand, thanks to the advocacy of Richard Hulse and others... is available live, and on-demand, to listeners anywhere.
Although, not to iOS users.
They have been promising live streaming through their iphone app for over a year now, but so far nothing has come of it.
The ABC app from Australia is a good example of how to do this (although it is only available from the Oz app store)
In 1975 the people of New Zealand voted against a compulsory superannuation fund
and did so again in 1997 by a fairly stonking margin
The trade agreement we have with Australia seems generally well liked by both people and business in each respective country......
Although the recent ".everything" decision will probably see the eventual demise of many of the traditional domain space monopolies, (although the $200K price will mean it will be a rather slow death)
I don't think this is good news for Labour, and here is my reasoning.
Yes, it gives them more of a chance of "coming through the middle" in the Maori electorates, but this has to be balanced by the possible loss of party votes, and for a big party like Labour party votes are what determine their eventual power in parliament.
Many Maori party electorate voters in 2008 split their votes between Maori and Labour, ( Labour won the party vote in all the Maori seats in 2008), If Hone can come to some understanding, formal or otherwise, that Mana will go after the party vote, and leave the electorate vote for the Maori Party, then these party votes may coming from Labour.
From Labour's point of view I suspect that they would not call the swapping of a couple of list MPs for two or three Maori electorates a good trade if their total number of seats in the house were reduced by 2-3.
One item of cycle infrastructure that's often omitted - which Stephen noted above - is safe places to park the bike. That means decent bike racks, which means proper Sheffield-style racks (the giant metal "staples" in the ground), allowing you to lock the bike frame to something large and immobile. The traditional "front wheel holder" bike racks that NZ seems to love are, frankly, rubbish; you can't lock the bike securely, and if someone knocks your bike you'll bend the front wheel.
Yeah, having a secure rack is a must, but they need to look good too, I am really liking these racks that are popping up in a number of places round Welly, they also visually reinforce that it is a space for cycles, rather than just a couple of regular loops of metal.
