Political Activists in Cassocks "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Today's Australian carries a couple of interesting headlines.

New Zealand blocks holidaying refugees coming from Nauru

and


Nauru claims refugees are trying to return

The first headline is self explanatory while the second refers to forty or so of the many illegal immigrants resettled in the USA who find life in the States is too tough and want to return to their concentration camp on Nauru Island.  Apparently you have to work for a living.

A few weeks ago Adolf sat through a Sunday sermon delivered by a highly educated woman with a pommy accent who told the congregation Australia is running a concentration camp in Nauru.

Some concentration camp.   

Inmates can go on holiday whenever they please, run businesses in the local towns and have their children sent to Australia for medical treatment, the latter paid for by Australian tax payers.

The Anglican Church needs to have a good hard look at the impostors it admits to its pulpits.

Paul Mertons Birth of Hollywood #2 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Wikipedia

Paul Mertons Birth of Hollywood is a 2011 BBC documentary series written, directed and presented by Paul Merton. The three-part series traces the rise of the American film-making industry in Hollywood through from the early years of film-making to the foundation of the major motion-picture studios and the new class of the film star.

Episode one follows the rise of the American industry from its beginnings with Thomas Edison and his Motion Picture Patents Company, and looks at figures such as the Biograph girl Mary Pickford, the controversial film pioneer D.W. Griffith, the origins of Charlie Chaplin, the foundation of United Artistsand the industrys move from New York to the orange groves of Hollywood, California

Moving towards the 1920s, Merton examines how conservative American lobbyists, fresh from obtaining prohibition, now turned their attention to the unregulated film industry. Merton views this through a study of the career of the silent film star Roscoe Arbuckle and how a false accusation led to his expulsion from the industry and as an excuse for instigating film self-censorship. Meanwhile, Merton looks at the effect of the First World War and the flamboyance of directors such as Cecil B. DeMille

The rise of the Hollywood film studios in the 1930s is told through the story of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. MGMs powerful young producer, Irving Thalberg, challenged the power of the director in making films and refused to allow his own name to appear in his films credits

Gresham College: Prof. Chris Budd Mathematics and the Making of the Modern and Future World #8 Maths Goes Into Space "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

A fascinating series delivered by Professor Chris Budd, CBE from Bath University

About this lecture

Many of us have been in a medical scanner and benefited from its use in medical diagnostics. But how many of us have considered how it works? The maths behind modern medical imaging (showing how CAT, MRI and Ultrasound scanners work) will be explained, showing how mathematics done in 1915 is now saving countless numbers of lives. 

Recent advances in mathematics are leading to much better images for doctors to use for their diagnoses; and similar methods and ideas are used in diverse applications such as remote sensing, oil prospecting, crime detection, studying bees and saving the whales.

https://youtu.be/prAAIFzXYF0

About the lecture series

In this lecture series by Professor Christopher Budd, the emphasis will be how mathematics gives us a glimpse into the future both of technology and of many other areas of our lives.

Since Newton, we have become used to science making confident predictions about the future, including on the motion of the planets and the times of the tides. However, some things seem very hard to predict, such as the stock market or the weather. Is this a fault in the way we model these systems, or is there a genuine limit to how far we can predict the future? One explanation comes from the theory of chaos, which explains why small changes now can lead to large uncertainty in the future. Professor Budd will describe how chaos theory works and how things can change rapidly.

Climate change is important, controversial, and the subject of huge debate. Much of our understanding of the future climate comes from the use of complex climate models, which are based on mathematical and physical ideas. Professor Budd will describe how these models work and the assumptions that go into them. He will discuss how reliable our predictions of climate change will be and show how mathematics can give us insights into both the past and the future.

One of the biggest advances in modern technology has been the development of GPS systems which allow us to find our position to very high precision. GPS is just the latest advance in the science of navigation, which has had a profound effect on human civilization. Professor Budd will show how mathematics has played a vital role in making navigation as accurate as it is today and the impac...

Gresham College: Prof. Carolyn Roberts Britain In Troubled Waters #2 The Next Big UK Flood: Britain Under Water "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

About this series

Rivers are all around us, flowing from the rural to the urban and carrying with them traces of all that makes up the modern environmental conundrum that is one of the largest problems facing the UK today. From drought and floods to pollution and urbanisation, this series of lectures takes us on a journey into the heart of the environmental problems facing us all.

About this lecture

What are the odds that events will conspire to put London under water during the next few years? Are the catastrophic Summer 2007 floods in the English Midlands and the recent events of southeast England harbingers of worse to come, particularly as the climate shifts? 

Serious flooding poses major challenges to the UKs security, despite changes in the way we try to manage both water and damage. 

The lecture will review the UKs recent experiences and explore how management and infrastructural improvements are being attempted. Can science, technology and collaboration reduce our vulnerability to floods?

Keeping Up Appearances The Pageant "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

lousy formatting , audio OK, but could be better, and best viewed full screen. In many ways the audio is the main attraction

Wikipedia

Keeping Up Appearances is a British sitcom created and written by Roy Clarke. It aired on BBC One from 1990 to 1995. The central character is eccentric and snobbish middle class social climber Hyacinth Bucket(Patricia Routledge), who insists that her surname is pronounced Bouquet.[2]The sitcom follows Hyacinth in her attempts to prove her social superiority, and to gain standing with those she considers upper class. Her attempts are constantly hampered by her lower class extended family, whom she is desperate to hide. Much of the humour comes from the conflict between Hyacinths vision of herself, and the reality of her underclass background. In each episode, she lands in a farcical situation as she battles to protect her social credibility.

The show comprised five series and 44 episodes, four of which are Christmas specials. Production ended when star Patricia Routledge moved on to other projects

And We Used To Laugh..... "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

..... at the idea of investment advisers and life insurance salesmen prospecting for clients at funerals.

I vaguely remember reading of some American who turned it into such an art form people did not know they were being sounded out.  He's give them a follow up phone call a couple of weeks after the event.  Very smooth and he made a fortune but I doubt he would have got away with it for long in NZ.

Here's one fellow who did get away with in Australia, big time.  His reward was a few years in the slammer.

One of Lovells victims included a friends widow, who he approached at a funeral and solicited a $100,000 investment which he promised would yield substantial returns.

Now the Tax Office is after him for over $700k and he's crying poor.

Mind you, when you've been living high on the hog, on money taken under false pretenses, the dosh tends to run out after a while.  Four years' jail and three years' unemployment have taken their toll.

I hope the ATO has registered bills of sale over every asset he owns.

BBC Drama: Strangers and Brothers by C.P.Snow #8/13 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Wikipedia

Strangers and Brothers is a series of novels by C. P. Snow, published between 1940 and 1970. They deal with among other things questions of political and personal integrity, and the mechanics of exercising power.

All eleven novels in the series are narrated by the character Lewis Eliot. The series follows his life and career from humble beginnings in an English provincial town, to reasonably successful London lawyer, to Cambridge don, to wartime service in Whitehall, to senior civil servant and finally retirement.

The New Men deals with the scientific communitys involvement in (and reaction to) the development and deployment of nuclear weapons during the Second World War. The Conscience of the Rich concerns a wealthy, Anglo-Jewish merchant-banking family. Time of Hope and George Passant depict the price paid by clever, poor young men to escape their provincial origins.

Snow analyses the professional world, scrutinising microscopic shifts of power within the enclosed settings of a Cambridge college, a Whitehall ministry, a law firm. For example, in the novels set in the Cambridge college (a thinly veiled Christs), a small, disparate group of men is typically required to reach a collective decision on an important subject. In The Masters, the dozen or so college members elect a new head (the Master) by majority vote. In The Affair, a small group of dons sets out to correct a possible injustice: they must convince the rest of the college to re-open an investigation into scientific fraud. In both novels, the characters strongly resist letting in the external world, whether it be the press, public opinion, the college Visitor, or outside experts.

The books were adapted by the BBC into a 13-episode television series, which began airing in January 1984. The series starred Shaughan Seymour as Lewis, Sheila Ruskin as his mentally troubled first wife Sheila and Cherie Lunghi as his second wife Margaret. Other actors of note who took part in the series include Anthony Hopkins, Nigel Havers, Peter Sallis and Tom Wilkinson.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats -S05 E10 The Trouble With Gary "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Season 3 Episode 5 appears to be missing

Water Rats is an Australian TV police procedural broadcast on the Nine Network from 1996 to 2001. The series was based on work of the men and women of the Sydney Water Police who fight crime around Sydney Harbour and surrounding locales. The show was set on and around Goat Island in Sydney Harbour.

Water Rats premiered on 12 February 1996, and ran for six seasons and 177 episodes. Colin Friels and Catherine McClements were the original stars of the series and were instrumental in the shows early success. They both departed the show in 1999. In later seasons, Steve Bisley, Aaron Pedersen and Dee Smart became the shows main stars.

For the sixth and final season in 2001, the show concentrated more on the cops personal lives rather than just focusing on the crimes committed. The Nine Network cancelled the show after six seasons. Executive Producer Kris Noble blamed escalating costs for the cancellation. However, Bisley and Smart had also just quit the show, and the series had already been suffering a ratings battle following the departure of Friels and McClements in 1999.

DW: New Challenges for the Bundeswehr! "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

 

A UN mission involving German troops is taking place in Mali, West Africa. The German army is acting as an international military peacekeeping task force. But how can Germanys Bundeswehr master the challenges of the future? Around 1,000 women and men of the Bundeswehr are deployed as part of the UN mission in Mali. But what exactly is their task? The documentarys writers Djamila Benkhelouf, who served with the Bundeswehr herself for two years, and Nino Seidel accompanied the soldiers in Gao. They provide a multifaceted insight into everyday life, both in the camp and on patrol. Specialized personnel such as pilots, facility defense staff and explosive ordinance experts are in particularly high demand for such missions; their training can take months, sometimes years. The deficit in these specialized personnel within the German military is becoming apparent to the soldiers in Mali; deployments are becoming longer, while at the same time new missions are being added around the world. This documentary asks: how has the German military changed in recent years? It is no longer a purely defensive force that would respond only in the case of an attack on Germany. How has it been confronting the new crises and upheavals in Europe and in the wider world? Is the Bundeswehr up to this new challenge?

Gresham College: Prof. Carolyn Roberts Britain In Troubled Waters #1- A body in the River "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

About this series

Rivers are all around us, flowing from the rural to the urban and carrying with them traces of all that makes up the modern environmental conundrum that is one of the largest problems facing the UK today. From drought and floods to pollution and urbanisation, this series of lectures takes us on a journey into the heart of the environmental problems facing us all.

 

About this lecture

The bodies of murder victims, whole or in pieces, often end up in rivers or canals. Carolyn Roberts work as an Expert Witness with UK police forces has applied the principles of hydrology to murder investigations.

In these tragic and gruesome settings, environmental science can help to identify where bodies have come from or gone to. Drawing on macabre and fascinating case studies, the lecture will range from particular cases to general principles of tracing bodies, and the application of science in supporting the law.

Probably not for those of a nervous disposition, but of guaranteed interest to the curious.

Keeping Up Appearances S05 E11 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

lousy formatting , audio OK, but could be better, and best viewed full screen. In many ways the audio is the main attraction

Wikipedia

Keeping Up Appearances is a British sitcom created and written by Roy Clarke. It aired on BBC One from 1990 to 1995. The central character is eccentric and snobbish middle class social climber Hyacinth Bucket(Patricia Routledge), who insists that her surname is pronounced Bouquet.[2]The sitcom follows Hyacinth in her attempts to prove her social superiority, and to gain standing with those she considers upper class. Her attempts are constantly hampered by her lower class extended family, whom she is desperate to hide. Much of the humour comes from the conflict between Hyacinths vision of herself, and the reality of her underclass background. In each episode, she lands in a farcical situation as she battles to protect her social credibility.

The show comprised five series and 44 episodes, four of which are Christmas specials. Production ended when star Patricia Routledge moved on to other projects

BBC Drama: Strangers and Brothers by C.P.Snow #7/13 "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Wikipedia

Strangers and Brothers is a series of novels by C. P. Snow, published between 1940 and 1970. They deal with among other things questions of political and personal integrity, and the mechanics of exercising power.

All eleven novels in the series are narrated by the character Lewis Eliot. The series follows his life and career from humble beginnings in an English provincial town, to reasonably successful London lawyer, to Cambridge don, to wartime service in Whitehall, to senior civil servant and finally retirement.

The New Men deals with the scientific communitys involvement in (and reaction to) the development and deployment of nuclear weapons during the Second World War. The Conscience of the Rich concerns a wealthy, Anglo-Jewish merchant-banking family. Time of Hope and George Passant depict the price paid by clever, poor young men to escape their provincial origins.

Snow analyses the professional world, scrutinising microscopic shifts of power within the enclosed settings of a Cambridge college, a Whitehall ministry, a law firm. For example, in the novels set in the Cambridge college (a thinly veiled Christs), a small, disparate group of men is typically required to reach a collective decision on an important subject. In The Masters, the dozen or so college members elect a new head (the Master) by majority vote. In The Affair, a small group of dons sets out to correct a possible injustice: they must convince the rest of the college to re-open an investigation into scientific fraud. In both novels, the characters strongly resist letting in the external world, whether it be the press, public opinion, the college Visitor, or outside experts.

The books were adapted by the BBC into a 13-episode television series, which began airing in January 1984. The series starred Shaughan Seymour as Lewis, Sheila Ruskin as his mentally troubled first wife Sheila and Cherie Lunghi as his second wife Margaret. Other actors of note who took part in the series include Anthony Hopkins, Nigel Havers, Peter Sallis and Tom Wilkinson.

Classic Aussie Crime Drama: Water Rats -S05 E09 Chinese Checkers "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"

Season 3 Episode 5 appears to be missing

Water Rats is an Australian TV police procedural broadcast on the Nine Network from 1996 to 2001. The series was based on work of the men and women of the Sydney Water Police who fight crime around Sydney Harbour and surrounding locales. The show was set on and around Goat Island in Sydney Harbour.

Water Rats premiered on 12 February 1996, and ran for six seasons and 177 episodes. Colin Friels and Catherine McClements were the original stars of the series and were instrumental in the shows early success. They both departed the show in 1999. In later seasons, Steve Bisley, Aaron Pedersen and Dee Smart became the shows main stars.

For the sixth and final season in 2001, the show concentrated more on the cops personal lives rather than just focusing on the crimes committed. The Nine Network cancelled the show after six seasons. Executive Producer Kris Noble blamed escalating costs for the cancellation. However, Bisley and Smart had also just quit the show, and the series had already been suffering a ratings battle following the departure of Friels and McClements in 1999.

$84 UNDERPANTS SEEM CHEAP IN 2018, SOMEHOW? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.nz"



The first foray into government for the by then ex National Party Minister as a representative of Winston First ended in a chaotic dissembling collapse when four of  "The Tight Five";  Delamere (now apparently a go to talking head on matters immigration), Henare The Younger, now gone from public life  after a varied career,  Morgan of Underpants fame currently ensconced in the top trough of Tainui, Rana Waitai ex policeman now retired barrister (enough said), joined four others to abandon Winston in his hour of need when he became personna non grata to Prime Minister Shipley in 1998. His initial time at the cabinet table had ended in similar fashion whith his being sacked by Bolger seven years earlier.
Of course it was de ja vue all over again with Clark in 2008 as her coalition was crumbling and the Key era was upon NZ.

Now in 2018 enjoying all the baubles and adulation as the appointer of the Coalition of Losers and using all he has learnt about insurance he has loosed a maniacal verbose porn viewer not with a small change  credit card to enable purchase of $84 underpants, The Jones Boy has millions at hand for whatever he thinks will give him and his boss, job security, with seemingly no need to bother with pesky accountability issues.

This is the blurb:-

A manned re-entry into the Pike River mine will go ahead, and is expected to take place in February next year.

The Pike River Recovery Agency recommended a single entry approach as the safest and most appropriate option.

The total estimated cost of the recovery has been put at $36 million. 

Lynn Freeman speaks with Anna Osborne, whose husband Milton died in the mine, Dave Gawn the Chief Executive of the Pike River Recovery Agency and Rob Fyfe the governments independent adviser on the plans for the re-entry of the Pike River mine.

There is so much wrong with this, but few if any will listen. The media have lapped this up.

Yesterday, the cost was upped to $50 million, but since when did NZ media deal in facts.
