Salvation Army Rural Youth Scholarships In 2007

PRESS RELEASE

The Salvation Army Allocates $153,000 For Rural Youth Scholarships In 2007

The Salvation Army through the Edmund Sanderson Jeff Farm Scholarship Scheme has approved 56 scholarships valued at $153,000 to young people from around New Zealand to study at Lincoln University and Telford Rural Polytechnic.

The scholarships include studies relating to general agriculture, agricultural science and commerce, dairy practice, farm management and forestry. Other courses considered were apiculture (beekeeping) and equine knowledge.

The Salvation Army own and manage (through a Farm Board) a substantial holding of 1932 hectares (4800 acres) in the Kaiwera District near Gore, running in excess of 20,000 su, comprising Romney sheep, predominantly Hereford cattle, and an increasing deer herd.

This property was bequeathed to The Salvation Army many years ago by the late Mr Jeff with some conditions, the principal clause being that “the farm and farm profits be used for the training of underprivileged youths in farming”.

The objectives and the purpose of the scholarships are to encourage young people who otherwise would not have the opportunity to fulfil their desired goal. The Salvation Army awards these scholarships as a significant investment in young people in New Zealand and rural industry.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940.

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
