Most Holiday Payments Paid

The Ministry of Education says most of the holiday payments for school staff that were expected to be delayed have now gone into bank accounts.
Chief Information Officer, Leanne Gibson, says 2,600 holiday payments were made today and the remainder will be in bank accounts during the day tomorrow.

“We had initially expected holiday payments for this group of non-teaching staff to be delayed until tomorrow, but most have gone through today.

“Other people who are still due their holiday entitlement will receive it tomorrow.”

Ms Gibson says the Ministry is sorry for the delay, but is pleased the majority of staff have been paid and that the latest fortnightly pay cycle has successfully paid 92,000 staff.

“We have continued to see improvement every fortnight and the Ministry and Talent2 are confident the final pay round for 2012, on December 21, will run smoothly.

“We know this is a really important time of year for people, which is why we have brought this pay day forward and put measures in place to ensure everyone is paid before Christmas.

“If any staff member is either not paid or significantly underpaid, the Ministry will make a direct payment to them if their school isn’t able to do that.”

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

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

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. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
