Really hope the #NSA isn't using a bag of words model. I just ordered "The Making of the Atomic Bomb"

I was rather shocked to find an Australian public park where it is an offense to loiter.

New Zealand's version of the Wright brother's receives a cheap replica of his plane (original was not preserved) on an obscure piece of highway that is difficult to find. A fitting tribute.

I want to buy a new laptop to run Linux. Unfortunately, I can't find anything remotely as good as a MacBook Pro (Chromebook Pixel looks nice, but needs an upgrade with more local storage). What does everyone run Linux on these days?

"Iriheke Te Kani Manu Pere, 33, suffered a critical injury on Friday when a Bushmaster rifle carried by an armed offenders squad member went off following his arrest."

I have no reason to doubt the police account that the shooting was accidental but the Herald lets itself down by failing to use clear English to describe the situation. Generally when a rifle carried by someone "[goes] off" and the bullet enters someone's body we refer to this event as a "shooting." As in, "The police shot Mr Pere." Or "An armed offenders squad member accidentally shot Mr Pere."
