TODAY’S TOP SCOOPS

Lyndon Hood: Prison Heating Solution Discovered By Scoop's Satirist

Recently Scoop's Lyndon Hood was puzzling over some recent press releases from National's Simon Power. [1] Perhaps, Mr Hood pondered, when Mr Power was complaining that prisons had underfloor heating when "96% of houses don't" he was saying that prisons should use some other kind of heating - something less suited to an institutional environment and a less energy-efficient use of taxpayer money. Or perhaps something easier to dismantle and turn into a weapon. See... Lyndon Hood: Heat Prisons With Power's Rhetoric [2] MORE:

  • National - Prison floor heating excuse beggars belief [3]
  • United Future - Priorities muddled when schools colder than prison [4]

    Immigration: Calling Skilled Migrants, New Zealand Wants You

    - More new migrants will be welcomed under the New Zealand Residence Programme during the next 12 months in response to continued skill shortages, Immigration Minister David Cunliffe announced today. "Up to 52,000 places offered to migrants means more vacancies will be filled," Mr Cunliffe said. "This will help employers who continue to say skill shortages are a constraint to the growth of their businesses, and will contribute to economic growth." See... Migrant level raised to meet skill shortages [1]

    Weather: Think June in NZ Was Particularly Cold? You Were Correct -

    MetService meteorologists say that the low-pressure system on Monday 12th June was a major system, bringing severe wind, rain and snow. It was followed by a sustained blast of polar-chilled southwesterly winds that kept some snow on the ground for longer than a week. "Such sustained cold is extremely rare", commented MetService Weather Ambassador, Bob McDavitt. "This is the first occasion we have seen it happen this decade, but there were two notable examples during the nineties." See... Sustained June Cold Was Rare [1]

    Timor: More Kiwi Troops Fly Out This Weekend to Troubled Country

    - More than 50 New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) personnel will depart for Timor-Leste on Saturday 1st July. Soldiers from the 2/1st Battalion, Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment, at Burnham, and logistics personnel from Linton Camp will fly out on Saturday morning onboard a RNZAF Boeing 757.

    Food: Public Health Inquiry Into Rugby Toffs' Ills Progressing

    - The investigation by the Auckland Regional Public Health Service (ARPHS) into the cause of the Eden Park gastroenteritis outbreak is progressing. Interviews have been conducted on 407 patrons. Of those, 81 (20%) have reported illness. Of the four affected hospitality areas investigated the rate of illness was highest for the Hall of Legends where 36% of the 178 interviewed patrons were ill. See...

    Transport: Muscle Cars In The Govt's Sights

    - Transport Safety Minister Harry Duynhoven today said the first step in the government's drive to target noisy vehicles will come into force in three weeks. The Director of Land Transport New Zealand issued a Gazette Notice yesterday which allows an objective test for measuring vehicle exhaust noise levels to be introduced. "Once the equipment arrives in the country and the training for testers takes place in July, the objective noise test will proceed full-steam ahead," Mr Duynhoven said. See...

    Broadcasting Standards: South Park Protected by Bill of Rights

    - The decision of the Kupe gas field partners to proceed with the near billion dollar development of the offshore field is a vital step in securing our energy future, Finance Minister Michael Cullen said today.

    Scoop Satire: Parliamentarians Go To The Movies

    - The wild speculation of history's great creative minds has, I've often thought, rarely been able to match the droll and improbable events that occur in the politics of this nation. But recently a rash of occurrences in the life of Parliament had a particularly strong resemblance to the works of moving-picture artists. See... Lyndon Hood: Parliament Imitates Art [1]

    Gush Shalom - Wednesday June 28, late afternoon: Israel - The taxi driver on the way to the demonstration was very outspoken: "God damn these dirty murdering terrorists. Why do we have to keep them in our prisons, and feed them like in a luxury hotel? I would gladly send the whole lot of them over to Gaza in order to get our boy out of there alive and well."

    Guantanamo Bay: Bush's Gulag Gets Marching Orders From SCOTUS

    - A rolling sense of awe has enveloped the mainstream news media since yesterday's Supreme Court decision on Guantanamo. The specifics of the decision are part of the discussion, to be sure, but the sense of amazement has a more basic root. After all this time, after a seemingly endless series of over-reaching power grabs by the Bush administration, someone with a big enough stick finally got in the way and said, "No." See...

    Timor L'este: Maryann Keady & John Pilger On The Timor Crisis

    - Three years ago, I wrote a piece talking about attempts to oust Prime Minister Mari Alkatiri in East Timor, then a new struggling independent nation. I wrote that I believed the US and Australia were determined to oust the Timorese leader, due to his hardline stance on oil and gas, his determination not to take out international loans, and their desire to see Australia friendly President Xanana Gusmao take power.

    Occupied Palestine: Gaza Under Attack Again

    - I am writing while the jet fighters are in the sky with their horrible sounds, bringing death and horror. It is 10:30 pm and I am still waiting, like everyone. I hope they will not go ahead with their operation into Gaza; the outcome could be horrible. The resistance movements are going ahead with their preparations too, but it is obvious which side holds the balance of power. Anyway, Israel - resistance or no resistance - is attacking us all the time, but this time will be different, and in the process many civilian lives will be lost. I am listening to the local radio. It seems that the operation started in Khan Yunis. The artillery started shelling under the cover of Apache helicopters and jet fighters. See... Mona Elfarra: Gaza Under Large-Scale Attack [1] MORE:
