Post-Sevens febfast


Post-Sevens febfast


People who overdid it at the Wellington Sevens this weekend can give their poor livers a break for the rest of February by signing up to febfast.

“The Sevens caps off a busy summer celebration season and many people are looking to give their bodies a break,” febfast coordinator Jackson Wood said.

“febfast is the perfect opportunity to push pause on alcohol and reassess your relationship with booze.

Mr Wood said previous febfasters had reported feeling healthier, having more energy, losing weight, and saving money.

“Nearly two thirds of people who have taken the febfast challenge now have more alcohol-free days every week since completing febfast,” Mr Wood said.

“The benefits of taking a month off booze stay with people for the rest of the year and they feel better for it.”

Registrations are still open for any guilty Sevens fans at www.febfast.org.nz

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
