All Natural Ingrediants
Processed foods are notorious for their jaw-droppingly long lists of chemical-laden ingredients, each one sounding worse than the last. But as these detailed infographics show, even the simplest of foods are anything but.

Why am I not surprised that "they" continue to use the more harmless-sounding terms "aqua" and "water" for the most abundant ingredient of all three of these natural foods? Are they trying to disguise or hide the most heinous ingredient of all, dihydrogen monoxide?

Appalling case of abuse by NZ authorities

This is an horrific story of police failing to do their job properly and the ongoing effects it is having on the family involved. 

There is something seriously wrong with the New Zealand system when after 3 different judges have rejected the charges, when the child says nothing happened, and when the mother says nothing happened, that the father is STILL not allowed unsupervised access to his children.

How awful for the family.
"Particularly concerning was the police refusal to take statements from independent witnesses in his support, he said."

+Thrash Cardiom Sounds about right, we'd describe them as being like a hungry pit bull. Once the teeth bite into flesh, they want their pound of it, regardless.
The good staff are I think outnumbered by those who believe anything a child says is verbatim, and they run with that and ignore anything to the contrary.

New Zealand's Dairy/Beef Problem

It’s all about cows’ wee. Each day, every dairy cow in the country passes 23 litres of urine, and there are now 6.7 million of them. There are also around 3.6 million beef cattle, which means our landscape gets drenched with more than 230 million litres of bovine urine (plus the outpourings of calves and 29.6 million sheep) every day. The nitrogen load of a single urine patch can run to a tonne per hectare, and that’s far more than any natural system can absorb – more than 750 tonnes of nitrogen run into Lake Rotorua alone each year.

Depending on soil type and topography, it can take up to 100 years for nitrogen to leach into the nearest waterway, and that’s the zinger right there. Many of our waterways are already saturated with nitrogen (and its evil twin, phosphorus), such that regional councils are spending tens of millions of ratepayers’ – and taxpayers’ – dollars trying to clean them up. But we haven’t even begun to see the worst of it. Beneath every dairy district, there is a subterranean tidal wave of nitrogen seeping inexorably downhill, into groundwater, into creeks, then rivers, then estuaries. As it goes, it whips plants into superfertile overdrive: freshwater algae run riot, exploding into blooms of sometimes-toxic scum.

Chris Lewis quickly backed down from the suggestion of a dairy moratorium in the Waikato, but environmentalists won't let it go so easily. The Waikato Federated Farmers president now insists he merely raised the notion as a “straw man” at an executive meeting, and that he was subsequently ...

[Brought to my attention by a friend on that other social network, sometimes FB does have content worth reading it seems :)]

This cannot be reposted too often, it is the most obvious argument against the position taken by media companies on globalisation.

"A different viewpoint is that these companies want to reserve the economic benefit of globalization for themselves.
They have no problem with global outsourcing of call centers, post-production, animation, pressing DVDs, etc. Nor with routing revenue through unrelated countries to evade taxes. It's all about having access to the lowest cost of production.
But these same companies are trying to limit consumers to buying only through tightly controlled distribution channels. Even if it's not their content, they want to block it -- they don't want consumers to have access to the world market.
We expect a worker in Seattle to compete with a worker in Thailand, and to take less pay if that's what it takes. But we want to enforce that the Seattle worker pays $250 for a textbook instead of $8, pays $15 for a DVD instead of under $1, and 20x for prescription drugs."

It's not dissimilar to grey importing which isn't illegal in New Zealand.  

Why should I have to pay more to view digital media than someone in the US or Australia or the UK?  There are no extra costs involved. There are no layers of businesses between me and the product. 

It's simply a case of charging more because they can and not for any valid reason.

Very well done. Too bad the people who should read it never will. And even if they did, their faith is probably so strong that it would have no effect on them.

NZ Farmers not good employers

How rife is this?

A Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) sting exposed dairy farmers exploiting and short-changing staff, with 19 out of 29 farms inspected breaking the law.

Investigation catches out dairy farmers around the country who have short changed or exploited staff by breaching employment laws.

The photo comes with the article that is linked to in my post.  The article is about the effect of nitrogen produced by dairy and beef cattle on New Zealand's environment.

Courier Post is useless A parcel came for me that needed to be signed for. It arrived before the business opened. Instead of attempting delivery later in the day as every other Courier company does, they took it back to their depot and sent me an email. I had to complete a form selecting whether to get it delivered in another day, pick it up from the Depot (wherever that may be) or to redirect it to another address. I selected to have it delivered tomorrow. No doubt they will attempt to deliver it before the business opens which means I will have to be there bloody early. I'm a trifle annoyed by this. For future orders I'll be requesting any other viable service be used other than Courier Post even if it is only a kid on a bicycle.
