TOP SCOOPS

SLUDGE: If You Thought Grant Gillon Was Offensive…

- The following are a series of colourful quotations made by members in the NZ Parliament. As can be seen, the remark made by Grant Gillon on Tuesday is not the first offensive remark made in the house linking members and animals. See... Sludge Report #21 – Beasts In The House [1] in the Headlines wire. In the latest reaction to the obscene remarks, political mavericks The Corrective Party say Mr. Gillon should be congratulated. See... Mr. Gillon, Produce the Sheep!!! [2] in the Politics wire.

Scoop IT: Bad Religion Virus A Hoax

- A virus warning was passed on to Scoop allegedly from an IBM worker in the United States this morning. It warns of a particularly vicious email virus: "It Takes Guts to Say Jesus". See... "It Takes Guts to Say Jesus" Virus Warning [1] . A Scoop reader has since pointed out that the virus warning is a hoax. See... F-Secure Hoax Warnings Pages [2] in the Science wire.

Scoop Business: Retail Sales Ease Slightly

- Retail trade figures for May 2000 show the pattern of growth in the underlying sales trend apparent since May 1998 is now easing according to Statistics New Zealand.

Keith Rankin: NZ Business Confidently Worried

- Last week's National Bank Survey of Business Confidence revealed the biggest loss of confidence since 1988. Yet, unlike 1988, there is no obvious reason for the apparent pessimism. It's no good blaming government policies such as slightly higher top tax rate. Keith Rankin, in his Thursday column... Rankin: Business Confidence and Goodhart's Law [1] in the Headlines wire.

Letter From Elsewhere: On Macho Men

- "Macho masculinity has been all over the media lately, in one form or another - and not just in the ads or sports reports. The head of a prestigious private school carpeted for rugby sideline ranting. An Olympic hero claimed to have a hidden life of gay sex." Anne Else in the first of a regular column... Letter from Elsewhere: Macho is as macho does [1] in the Headlines wire. Also see…Bullying, Violence A+, Science, Maths D [2] in the Headlines wire.
