A perfect example of how (not) to identify the root cause:
She said Wellington's D-graded bays shared similar high urban development and hills running down to the beaches, which was the cause of the problems.

Wouldn't you think that people are using substandard equipment to do their business in, causing it to run into our pristine 100% pure water resources? The Council, of course, doesn't want to hear that, because they are responsible for or approved the use of of substandard equipment.
It might not surface as solids, but human waste is present in two Wellington bays, says report.

Perhaps again superior NZ educated drivers involved? Reporters are quick to point at 'tourist drivers', but why not state that NZ drivers are involved? Are reporters too biased to be able to bring untainted news? Perhaps a proper overseas education would help with that. (Don't look at the US, as all the news from there is also biased, but that's just my personal opinion).

Certainly, the oddities of NZ Roads
(Terrain, Topography, Black-Ice, ContraFow, etc., do catch out lots a foreign drivers,
that are used to something different).

But this weekend, it appears that KIWIS
are outdriving our skills,
are outdriving our visability,
and outdriving the variable conditions
(weather, etc.) !

Fog,
BlackIce,
Snow,
Youth (inexperience),
Fatigue,
the Winter-damp (grip),
Complacency (older drivers ?),
balls-bigger-than-brains,
and shortage of good passing opportunities,
are the usual factors.

Over-use probably does. Like with most other things, too much is not good for you.
Your body has an amazing ability to restore itself after damage. However, if you keep 'rubbing salt in the wound' it won't be able to repair that damage.
First things first: No one has proven that cellphones cause cancer. In fact, most research suggests otherwise. But you might not realise that, based on some news circulating Friday - New Zealand Herald

"We have nothing to hide so at the end of the day New Zealand should have the best international practice in this area," Mr Key said last month.

I guess he means to say that we are among the best performers in hiding the dirty money for the rich and infamous.

This is so wrong in NZ. They will get away with a slap on the wrist and they are allowed to keep their mouth shut about their 'mates'. They should get a full sentence in prison without parole, only to be reconsidered if they name their co-offenders.

Yeah, if they don't cough up the names of their accomplices, they should have whatever time they'd get for the crime added to their sentences.
So two slaps on the wrist with a wet bus ticket.

And Key would say: I don't know. You know, it's not that bad. We have a world class economy. (before he gets briefed on the issue). After that he will just say that the government is working on these issues.
Strident remarks by Stephen Jennings, one of New Zealand’s wealthiest citizens, on housing, education and the economy suggest that the even the business community is tiring of the government’s endless softly-softly, writes Duncan Greive. Over the past few days we’ve seen a startling insertion int

Would you think that this is another tourist driver? Or would it be one of those really well educated NZ drivers, that also have a fair amount of consideration for their fellow road users?

With all the upheaval about tourist drivers in NZ, it would be good to know whether a tourist driver was one in charge of one of the two vehicles involved? The reporter not mentioning it (we're not biased) it probably is one of those superior NZ educated drivers.

It's probably time for the US to do some serious damage to Assad. Bomb the palace/official buildings in Damascus with the clear intention to do take Assad out.
The US State Department has said Syria's air strike on a hospital in Aleppo was "reprehensible," and has called on Russia to use its influence to pressure Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government to stop the attacks.

Russia owns Assad, they have two bases there, used to do 30 billion in trade. If Putin was decent, he would end the war and let Assad steal a couple billion and live in Moscow.

My work involves trying to keep people safe by promoting a safety-conscious approach to what ever we do, including the handling of dangerous goods (or hazardous substances as they are called in New Zealand). I prefer to enjoy nature without a (wet) piece of textile around part of my body. I try to do my bit in protecting the environment by not leaving my rubbish behind and most of the time collecting a bag or two of rubbish from the beach before going home.
