Keith Rankin: Marginalised Males And The Suicide Problem

- We are starting to acknowledge that suicide is a topic that must be discussed and discussed openly. But in New Zealand almost all the media references are to youth suicide. However in 1998 - the latest year for which New Zealand suicide statistics have been published - 57 percent of suicides were by men aged over 25. See... Keith Rankin: The Last Taboo [1]

New York Markets Do The Dead Cat Bounce

- A few days of confidence on the New York stock markets early this week gave way overnight to another rout, taking the world leading markets back close to their two year low levels of last week. In other words this week’s brief return to confidence on Wall has turned out to be yet another dead cat bounce. See... New York Markets Do The Dead Cat Bounce [1]

Begging The Question: What future for Kiwis in Oz?

In his debut Scoop column Jimmy Solen rings the changes. See... Begging The Question: What future for Kiwis in Oz? [1] . See also.. Australian social security agreement signed [2]

Offenders Should Pay Their Dues And No More - Tanczos

- The purpose of the Clean Slate bill is, as the explanatory note says, to ensure the fair administration of justice for those offenders who have committed minor crimes and are unlikely to re-offend. See... Clean Slate Bill Introduction Speech - Tanczos [1] . See also... Dunne To Correct Miscast ‘Clean Slate' Bill Vote [2]

Scoop World: Israel Strikes Palestinian Targets

- It is too early to assess the results of the strike. I can say, however, that we hit one target in Ramallah and four targets in the Gaza Strip. Among these targets were a weapons depot, a Force 17 installation, a training base of the Presidential Guard, and several armored vehicles. See... General Ron Kitry's Remarks On The 28 March Strike [1]

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport
