Scoop’s Great Big Thankyou Page Launched – THANKYOU!

Dear My Scoop Subscribers,

Since the last Scoop Update we are delighted to report that Scoop has received a few cheques in the mail from our debut sustaining subscribers.

So far Scoop has two secret admirers - one maniacal and one angelic - and the hugely munificent John Williams from Christchurch.

And as promised in the last Scoop Update we have now launched our Great Big Page Of Thankyou’s as a mark of appreciation to our sustaining subscribers.

This can be viewed at.

http://scoop.co.nz/mason/features/?s=thankyou

Our debut subscriptions have – as you no doubt have noticed - helped keep the Scoop fires burning over the darkest days of what has so far been a bitterly cold winter.

But, that said, the online advertising market appears to have taken something of a turn for the worse, and more sustaining subscribers are still needed.

Are you feeling angelic today. If you are then you too can have your name, logo or link on our Great Big Page Of Thankyous!

Binoy Kampmark: Predictable Monstrosities: Priti Patel Approves Assange’s Extradition
The only shock about the UK Home Secretary’s decision regarding Julian Assange was that it did not come sooner. In April, Chief Magistrate Senior District Judge Paul Goldspring expressed the view that he was “duty-bound” to send the case to Priti Patel to decide on whether to extradite the WikiLeaks founder to the United States to face 18 charges, 17 grafted from the US Espionage Act of 1917...

Digitl: Are we happy living in Handy's Age of Unreason?
In 1989 Charles Handy wrote The Age of Unreason. It's a book that looked forward to a time where telecommuting would be an everyday reality. We live in that world today, although we use the term working from home. The book contains other predictions that were on the money... More>>


Reactionary Succession: Peter Dutton, Australia’s New Opposition Leader
The devastation wrought on Australia’s Coalition government on May 21 by the electorate had a stunning, cleansing effect. Previously inconceivable scenarios were played out in safe, Liberal-held seats that had, for decades, seen few, if any challenges, from an alternative political force. But the survival of one figure would have proved troubling, not only to the new Labor government, but to many Liberal colleagues lamenting the ruins. The pugilists and head knockers, however, would have felt some relief. Amidst the bloodletting, hope... More>>


Digitl: Infrastructure Commission wants digital strategy
Earlier this month Te Waihanga, New Zealand’s infrastructure commission, tabled its first Infrastructure Strategy: Rautaki Hanganga o Aotearoa. Te Waihanga describes its document as a road map for a thriving New Zealand... More>>


Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>




The Conversation: Cheaper food comes with other costs – why cutting GST isn't the answer

As New Zealand considers the removal of the goods and services tax (GST) from food to reduce costs for low income households, advocates need to consider the impact cheap food has on the environment and whether there are better options to help struggling families... More>>
