“Being the global 50th anniversary for the iconic Mustang, the 2014 event in Christchurch will be a very special occasion and we’re delighted to be a part of it,” said Corey Holter, Managing Director of Ford NZ. “Previous Mustang conventions have been superbly managed by the respective organising clubs with their local sponsorships, and we have greatly appreciated their efforts. Accordingly we’re delighted to go further this year and provide direct support to the organising club, Canterbury, for this one off opportunity in Christchurch.”

The Canterbury Mustang Owners’ Club is equally delighted with Ford NZ’s involvement. Club President Jeff Waghorn recognises the impact and responsibility of Ford’s investment. “Our club had already been humbled by the opportunity of hosting the 50th celebration convention in Christchurch in October. Now, with Ford’s direct support, we are even more motivated to create an event truly befitting the 50th, and befitting the profile of the Ford brand.”

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
