PUBLIC ADDRESS 12/11/04 - Still on the wires

Still on the wires | Nov 12, 2004 09:40
Russell Brown's Hard News

A little more comment on yesterday's broadband post: although I felt that the view advanced in Telecom's keynote presentation at the Tuanz conference - it's not the network, it's the content - ran way too close to saying "it's all your fault, you ninnies", I was at the same time...,

If you see just one movie this year.... | Nov 11, 2004 15:52
David Slack on his own account

You can generally rely on Brian Rudman to smoke out a secret and get it to hang its sorrowful head in front of us all. So what a surprise to see him baldly declare last week that he knows an especially good one and won't tell...,

Drama? What drama? | Nov 10, 2004 22:46
Fiona Rae from the couch

I arrived fashionably late at TVNZ's launch of its 2005 season programmes, which is just a euphemism for a) I went to the wrong place first (note to self: read invitations before setting out); and b) parking about a mile away from the Maidment Theatre, where the launch was actually…,

Also, readers in or near Auckland may wish to note that Public Address is presenting the second Flying Nun Pub Quiz on occasion of the release of the Second Season DVD compilation, on Wednesday November 24, at the King's Arms, from 8pm. Further details are in the ad displaying on Hard News and other pages, via which you can also enter to win copies of the DVD. It will be very good fun and you should feel free to join us on the night, when the good folk of Flying Nun will be distributing some very festive prizes.

Cheers, RB.

The proposed ‘New Zealand Income Insurance Scheme’ (‘the scheme’) has attracted strong debate among the more left-wing and liberal groupings, within New Zealand-Aotearoa.

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.

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>>
