Scoop Image: Satellite Image of South Island Snow

An image of the snowbound South Island taken from NASA's Modis Satellite. The satellite happened to pass over New Zealand to capture much of the South Island under snow. Thousands of South Islanders throughout the Otago, McKenzie Country and Canterbury regions remain without electricity and telecommunications today. The crisis is due to the Big Freezy weather-Bomb that hit the Mainland this week. Electricity woes will continue through to the weekend. See... Scoop Image: Southern Snow From Outer Space [1] ALSO:

    Legal Stimulation: Greens Want Party Pills To Remain On Sale

    - The findings of the first of four research projects into party pill use and its effects are being welcomed by the Green Party, with a note of caution that they should not be used to justify total prohibition. The research, which shows that as many as one in five New Zealanders have tried BZP or party pills, was released by the Ministerial Committee on Drugs today. It also found that 60 per cent of those surveyed believed there should be tougher regulation of the sale of the pills. See... Party pill research doesn't justify prohibition [1] ALSO:

    Weather: Hurricane Season Begins For South-East Coast of USA

    - The Atlantic Hurricane season for 2006 is expected to be one of the worst ever. Last year's season was in fact the worst ever to date, and will be hard to beat, however, so far 2006 is shaping up as expected. Nine days into the season what is now Tropical Storm Alberto started to form in the Gulf of Mexico. Four days later 20,000 Florida residents have been ordered to evacuate a section of the Florida coast which is expected to bear the brunt of an 8-10 foot storm surge in advance of the hurricane – which according to the latest advisory is now not expected to be an actual hurricane on landfall in 18 hours.

    Peter King Examines The New Zealand Defence Force

    - This study is a private investigation into the value for money offered by Vote Defence. It concludes that it should be possible to operate a defence force that is better equipped and more capable of responding to all likely emergencies than the one we have at present. The force would have higher wages, lower operating costs but have a headcount of just over two thirds of the current force. See... A NZ Security Review - Opportunities Lost [1]

    Gitmo – Where Suicide Is "A Good PR Move "

    - The US Government today sought to distance itself from a statement calling the suicides of three Guantanamo Bay prisoners "a good PR move to draw attention" as human rights groups, legal experts and newspapers in the Middle East renewed calls for the prison's closing. Colleen Graffy, deputy assistant U.S. secretary of state for public diplomacy, told the British Broadcasting Corporation over last weekend that the suicides at the US-run camp in Cuba were a "good P.R. move to draw attention" and "a tactic to further the jihadi cause."

    More Comment On The Death Of Abu Musab Al Zarqawi

    - As reported in 2004 by Jim Miklaszewski of NBC News the U.S. Military presented President Bush three plans to kill or capture Abu Musab Al Zarqawi [link] between June of 2002 and January, 2003 before the invasion of Iraq. In each instance the authorization was not forthcoming. They never pulled the trigger and by March of 2004 over 700 terrorist killings had been blamed on Zarqawi. Investigative reporter, Greg Palast presents the case that it was the U.S. that effectively invited Zarqawi into Iraq in the first place.
