I didn't know we still had slavery in New Zealand. 'Owning' a person equals slavery. Perhaps (some) farmers consider their employees as their property and they don't need to be paid a full wage. The latter is based on recent info that (most) farmers don't pay minimum wages and abysmal wages for farm managers. It is time that parliament stops treating farmers as 'above the law' business owners.
MP Ian McKelvie's comment:
He went on to say, "I wonder whether there's a great deal of difference between stealing someone's person and someone's sheep." 
"There's equal concern about the treatment of animals as there is about people."

Did Obama order the Special Operations forces to flee/withdraw, leaving much of their equipment and ammo ready to use for ISIS?

The Americans weren’t really that serious in hitting ISIS to help us. 
By: Hemin Lihony hlihony@rudaw.net A shocking betrayal, waves of suicide attacks, days hiding in the desert. This is a first-hand account by a top Kurdish commander in the Iraqi armed forces about what really happened – and what happens next – in Ramadi, Anbar and Iraq. Transcript...

Simple question: How, and where in G+ help do I find the 'trick' to show the most recent posts in my stream. I often get the ticker/counter showing a number of new posts in my stream, but when I click on it, I just get a number of old posts at the top. I did know the magic word at some stage but forgot.

+William Scuby if you wanted to see everything from all your circles chronologically then creating a new circle with everyone from your other circles and viewing that circles stream should work.

Not that you may bump into limits if you tried to achieve this all in one go though.

I'm sure this sentence has been redacted:
"You're not doing anything," she says to me. "Get another hose."
It should actually read: 
"You're not doing anything," she says to me. "Get your hose out."

Now read on :)

The next step would have been for every Palestinian having to wear the equivalent of the yellow "david's star". What would be coming after that? Concentration camps? And the US continues to support Israel. Who's pulling the strings in the US?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu scrapped a plan that would have barred Palestinians from Israeli public buses in the West Bank.

Monsanto on the back foot? If I'm correct, Glyphosate was first registered as an anti-biotic, so it makes sense. They have knowingly been making people sick for all those years.
Efforts to publicize a class action lawsuit against Monsanto for false advertising it's best-selling herbicide Roundup have been rejected by the media.

One of the most endangered birds in NZ.
The kōkako belongs to the endemic New Zealand wattlebirds, an ancient family of birds which includes the North and South Island saddleback and the extinct huia.

So, what's the problem?
Overseas media reported this week that New Zealand is the best place in the world to be a prostitute. We go behind the closed doors of our legalised brothels.

It is a tool, and a dangerous one, that requires training. The company is responsible for preventing kids to have access to those tools. Why is that not enforced by WorkSafe? Every accident with a farmbike that involves kids, or people not employed by the company/farmer,  should have someone prosecuted. Whether that is the company director, farmer-owner, or the manager directly responsible for the safe use of the tools, doesn't really matter. The message must come across that farm bikes should be locked up and made inaccessible to people that have not been specifically authorised to used them. The latter should only happen AFTER suitable training.
It's time to ban kids from riding quad bikes because voluntary guidelines are not working, doctors say.

Perhaps a class action would get the ball rolling. Where's McGrady when you need him?

Is the next war just around the corner (read: elections)? 
Lies were of no less value than truth, so long as they both created enough fear.

This article  is spot on +William Scuby     No truer words than this have ever been spoken: 
 "The administration picked out the parts that they wanted — supported, unsupported, plausible, absurd, it didn't matter — and used them in their campaign to turn up Americans' fear." 
Thank you for sharing it , but of course it will only be accepted by  us  Democrats and some independents.  The  Republicans will use the same model as Bush to judge this article.

Feeling at home in my natural state. I also believe that the following quote was written for me: "Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Introduction
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.
