Living the invasion with Tze Ming Mok

When I met John Ong at last year's ASPA awards I was super-impressed that his family was tight with the Lims of Lim's Supermarket and Lim Chhour foodcourt. This meant that he was famous. The Lims people, the Lims...

Graham Reid's many things

The hidden costs of living in a leaky building are legion, but today we were dealt a bitter and somewhat personal blow. But first let me backtrack a little and explain how costs can mount beyond the mere bill for repairs (in our case a tidy $60,000 or thereabouts, plus...

Keith Ng: Is cool

Last month's issue of New Scientist presented the ultimate deux ex machina: The sun will save us from global warming. Similar to Al Gore's graphs, it correlates sunspot activity with temperatures on Earth...

Could it have been just another case of bumbling poor judgment, the mind softened as the mouth opened? A question was put to US President Joe Biden, visiting Tokyo and standing beside Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida: “You didn’t want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily for obvious reasons. Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?” The answer: “Yes. That’s a commitment we made.”.. More>>

Dunne Speaks: Robertson's Budget Gamble On Treasury
The popular test of the success or failure of Grant Robertson’s fifth Budget will be its impact on the soaring cost of living. In today’s climate little else matters.

Keith Rankin: Liberal Democracy In The New Neonationalist Era: The Three 'O's
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. This debate should be seen as a positive rather than negative tension because of the opportunity to consider and learn from the implications and sharpen advocacy... 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>>

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>>
