Since the breakup of the MV Rena both the
authorities and military have leaped into
action in contrast to their initial response
(where the navy alone was put on standby but
given no orders for four days).
This includes very specifc instructions: to
stay clear of all containers and not to touch
any of the milk powder that was ashore.
The government (Nick Smith to be specifc)
via the media acknowledged hazardous
goods including cryolite were aboard the
stern where this author has long suspected
hazardous goods may be stored.
This follows 11 hazardous goods being
known to have been on the MV Rena. ship-
Alkyd sulfuric acid alone has been identifed
by the media, leaving initially ten other
cargoes unidentifed as to what they are and
what steps are now being taken to protect the
public and the environment.
With a little help from FaceBook site, MV
Rena Response Monitoring and Action Group,
I then identifed the following:
1. Hydrogen peroxide
2. Trichloroiscyanuric acid
3. Potassium nitrate class 5.1
4. Ferrosilicon which emits a fammable gas
when in contact with water.
More importantly these were cargoes
listed according to UN classifcations as
International dangerous goods identifcation
number but, as I noted on the Vinny
Eastwood Show, we were given no guarantee
that things were not being mislabeled or
marked tractor parts. My fear was that any
deliberate toxic waste stored would be in the
stern where it was most likely to be lost if the
ship broke apart.
And sure as little apples are green, TV3,
a week after my appearance on the Vinny
Eastwood Show, then identifed aluminum
byproduct cryolite mislabeled and stored
in the stern. Dr Nick Smith, Minister of the
Environment, would naturally play this down
as he had also played down the role of Corexit
9000, a nano-engineered emulsifer used not
just in oil exploration but for oil dispersal. It is
linked to, frst, an aggressive fu (which often
goes untreated) before long term neuron-
disorders arise at later date which can strike
up to year after initial contact with high rate
of illness. So, in the Gulf of Mexico, the high
level of illness amidst volunteers and clean up-
workers continue to worry health offcials.
With this in mind, it hard not to see why the
Minister of the Environment, Dr Nick Smiths
remarks that Corexit was as harmless as
dish washing liquid have been lambasted by
environmental salvage experts who denounce
Smiths statement as an outright fabrication.
They are more harmful than the oil itself,
and they are not less toxic than dish washing

Smith is also ignoring in his public briefng
the fact that Corexit 95000 is no longer
used by BP (responsible for the Horizon gas
platform leak) because of health concerns,
including the fact that chemicals react
differently depending what form they are
found in or what they come in contact with.
For example, researchers believe Corexit
may be up to a hundred times more toxic to
humans and other species when in fact mixed
with oil or concentrated as is the case in NZ
where, initially, spraying methods had Corexit
deployed in a concentrated form when
dilutions levels where incorrectly applied
and ignored Corexits own manufacturers
guidelines not to be sprayed close to shore.
The effects of Corexit will be felt long after
any signs of the oil spill have gone and the
beaches LOOK okay. The MSC is believed
to be in negotiation with government for
a compensation deal which includes re-
compensating volunteer clean- up workers.
It is advised that volunteers check anything
they are asked to sign by either MSC or the
government in the event of compensation
to ensure it does not contains any caveat to
prevent legal action from being taken in the
future should the need arise.
Which bring us back to the issue of what was
on the Rena. Offcially, 32 containers have
now been identifed as containing hazardous
goods, twenty in the stern cont. pg 3
What all kiwis, not just food growers should be whining about. cont. from pg 1
As of 2012 New Zealanders will fnd them
selves staring down the barrel of two particu-
larly nasty forms of legislation the already
passed the search and surveillance bill and the
proposed Food Bill which is to go before NZ
parliament this year.
The frst now gives up to seventy NZ govern-
ment agencies, such as the NZ Meat Board,
unlimited power which can be extended to pri-
vate security of corporations by said agencies,
the right to conduct surveillance on line and in
the physical fesh in manner never seen in NZ.
The second bill now makes the right to grow
food a government privilege to be handed
out when and as the government see ft.
Breaches of privilege enforceable again by
armed police and corporate rent a cops act
ing on behalf of agencies like the NZ Meat
Board and your local council.

The Surveillance bill also does away with the
right to silence and its critics maintain may
even be used to approve censorship of blogs
or website deemed subversive. ie. Information
sharing of information or available as matter of
public record may now become a crime. Coin-
ciding with right wing businesses personalities
meeting with NZ
and US offcial to host such meeting as Taking
Back the Internet hosted in 2005 in by the US
NZ chamber of commerce at Otago University

NZ what constitute a terrorist or political dis-
senter and is worry in light of radical new law
changes in the USA.

Not a usual Saturday lunch.
To wash it all down, there will be bubbles
for the ladies, and Monteiths for the men.
Not to mention rhubarb, rose petal and
elderfower bubbly, honey mead, kowlua
and milk, locally brewed moonshine, and
fruit juice slug not for the fainthearted.
And yes, there will once again be stallion
semen protein shots for the brave. Pure
testosterone.There will be entertainment
throughout the day on the main stage,
with an assortment of music types and
characters, as well as a series of cooking
demonstrations by a well-known chef.
The festival will also host its very frst
wedding, with the groom- and bride-to-be
regular attendees at the event.
For those who dont really need an excuse
to dress up, there is a best-dressed prize
for the most creative and imaginative,
in keeping with the wild time theme.
There is also a photography competition
and countless photo opportunities just

carrying the mislabeled cryolite Four of
these containers are on the deck near the bow.
They contain empty tanks that previously
held hydrogen peroxide, and could give off
gasses that could cause eye, nose/throat/
skin irritations, states the MNZ site before
reporting, Six containers below deck contain
ferrosilicon, potassium nitrate and potassium
superoxide. See details on these chemicals
below. The other recently declared 21 containers
hold cryolite (see details below).
Thus one containers whereabouts remains a
mystery and its specifc cargo remain omitted
from MNZ site. With no information cited
either as to the whereabouts of the 5000 kg
of trichloroiscyanuric acid classed as high
aquatic eco-toxicity listed or the 23,000 kg of
alkysulphonic liquid -class 8 Range (highlow)
of aquatic eco-toxicity listed either. Perhaps the
nearly 30,000 kg of aquatically toxic material
are all stored in the one missing container not
accounted for on the MNZ site. Basic math
shows us something is just not right here.
Meanwhile the content of the containers and
their whereabouts continues to add to the
residents of Taurangas woes.
Amanda Ward notifed DEADLINE how, on
October 11, 88 containers were washed into the
sea in rough weather, with, as of last week, 58
remaining unaccounted for.
The fgures can no longer be found on theMNZ
It has actually now been acknowledged that
over 300 containers have now been lost
with only 20% recovered. Or translated, 200
containers have simply vanished although
black box recorders of the MV Rena were
sent to Australia well before Christmas. Yet the
public still have had no notifcation as to the
cause of the MV Rena demise other than the
fact that at least one blogger was shut down pre-
election for his knowledge on the affair - after
his primary claims where corroborated by The
As we discover, the ship was insured for no
less than 4 billion dollars but, because of NZ
law, only a fraction of this may ever be paid,
as NZ law places maximum levels as to what
compensation can be sought despite the ship
being fully insured. The New Zealand Herald
reported, Under the Maritime Transport Act,
the capped civil liability to the ships insurers is
estimated at $14 million by legal commentators.
John Key yesterday said the clean-up so far had
cost an estimated $12.1 million.

That is what the founder of Invercargill radio
station Ifnity FMhopes his station will provide
the community.
The station, which currently broadcasts in
Invercargill, Christchurch and on the internet,
was started last year when Greg Selman, or
Ozzie, sold his car to buy gear and began
transmitting from his garage with an Xbox.
With a passion for radio and a concern that
many of the voices in his community were not
being represented by other stations, Ozzie set
forth on his project to give people a voice.
It is hard to get a job in radio, most people work
for free and there are very few regional stations.
He describes the station as a baby learning to
Infnity began with only Ozzie, but had 50 staff
at one point and now has 27 interns including a
dedicated news crew which is attracting more
This is furthering Ozzies goal for ifnity to
speak on issues that other stations tend to miss.
The station has also secured the services of
two of New Zealands most popular Dub Step
DJs Optimus Gryme and Organikismness who
produce shows on Friday nights, plus Best
Selling author and independent newspaper
proprietor Ben Vidgen (who recently joining
forces with Oz to found the Southerns
Independent Media Alliance) and will be co-
hosting every Sunday night a news show with
Ifnity kick arse news team.
Greg Ozzie Selman is the CEO & founder of
Ifnity FM
A quick introductory note when Oz frst submitted this my
frst thought were to I should edit it and give it a bit of
gloss but in the end I decided against this. . For as some
one who is inficted with dyslexic I have learned too often
how we can to easily ignore the court jesters who lisp
wisdom as with serial gullibility we fall for the eloquent
lies of princes delivered to us in the highest of tongues.
Yet real communication is not based on grammar alone
but on the power of ideas that lie in the minds of us all.
Where to start?? My names Ozzie. You dont
no me or have any relation to me, but today I
got asked to write. See, today I asked a question
in my brain. I didnt tell anyone what the
question was or or what it was about, I didnt
have time because I looked up and there it was.
The answer to my question. It was the next
status update on face-book from someone else.
It solved what I was asking. It let me avoid
something at the same time.
Sometimes life is a bit like that. You look up
and bang its there in ya face but ya miss it. it

Wildly popular music-comedy sensation The
Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra
are back on the road with their newest
record, I Love You, another serving of
infectious, ukulele-infused hit songs.

This tour sees the orchestra play new towns
never before explored by the band, who look
forward to bringing their charming swagger
to new corners of New Zealand. Heavenly
harmonies and stunning solos are juxtaposed
against hilariously budget special effects,
madcap antics and questionable banter,
delighting crowds of all ages.

Lead by Age Pryor (Fly My Pretties,
Woolshed Sessions), the band formed six
years ago at a tiny caf in Wellington and
have since become a cult favourite, causing a
mad scramble for tickets wherever they go.

Empire Under the Long White Cloud self
published by author Gary Blair is quite
frankly a bloody good yarn and Mr Blair
should be very proud of himself. I have read
it and a que has formed in household by
other members also wanting to read it after
watching the reactions of those who have.
8 years in the making, this is a fact based
fctional novel. The book is written by Gary
Blair, who was once a jockey in his youth,
apprentice to the late Ray Harris from
|Tuahiwi. Based in the mid 1850s, and the
story follows a lads fght for survival in this
the furthest outpost of the British Empire.
And his experience on the Collingwood
Goldfelds, the history of the early mariners,
the story of Te Rauparaha, and the slaughter
of the tribes who lived in the far north of
Te Wai Pounamu between 1827 -1831 and
beyond. The book works on many levels as
historic novel revealing the seedy history of
NZ politics, gun runners, race relations and
those with greed in their eyes.

On another level the book is simply good
yarn about NZ pioneer history which brings
history alive warts and all (including oral
sex and opium).
Detailed from start to end from how to pack
a pipe to breaking a horse in but rarely dry
or drawn out in way that make the reader
know the author has forgotten them.

It confrms what I have long known NZ
history was every bit colorful as the Wild
West and Cowboy era but until now has it
interest suck dry by academics historian
and Victorian Presbyterianism, regional
parochialism. The sort of censored version
which glossed over the seedy and made NZ
history slightly less exciting than a frontal
lobotomy patient on Valium. We need more
books like this to remind us of just what a
fascinating (and often violent) place the NZ
of the 1800s was.

The books also works as parody on greed
and what happens when loose sight of
with real prize and you get the feeling and
appreciate that the author is sharing his
own insight of this philosophy via this most
remarkable tale.
Finally it is romance made all the more
poignant by the integrity paid to the story
Emprie Under the Long Wite Clouds Is

the simplicity but detail of Huckleberry fn

When British television chef and restaura-
teur Rick Stein was told he could choose
to go anywhere in the world to write a
travel article for English newspaper the
Daily Mail, he chose Fleurs Place in Mo-
eraki, New Zealand.
The restaurant, run by the inimitable
Fleur Sullivan, was Just one of those
places that keeps cropping up in conver-
sations whenever there was a gathering
of foodies, he said. Set in the sleepy
little fshing village of Moeraki on the
Otago coast, Fleurs Place has an unbeat-
able setting.

Theres water on three sides, fshing
boats bobbing in the harbor, the famous
Moeraki boulders across the bay and, to
the north, the open sea. Fleur uses only
the freshest of local ingredients - indeed,
fshing boats land their catches right into
her restaurant.
This book combines recipes supplied by
Fleur herself with photographs of the
spectacular scenery of coastal Otago and
the Moeraki area. Side-bar text includes
information on Fleur, the restaurant, local
suppliers and the Moeraki area.

MPs on both side of the fence need to think
long and hard about what the consequences
of this act will do in removing a citizens
right to air grievances & seek address
though public forums. Thus providing the
means to address issues concerning the
breach to the social contract that exist be-
tween state & its citizens as is the intended
model of genuine democracy.
This author personally BEGS all MPs to
think and discuss amongst there familys and
colleagues what the consequences of such
legislation now mean not just to society as
whole but personally to themselves their
familys and friends. Laws that irreversibly
changes the social fabric of NZ which kiwi
are deeply proud of in most dangerous ways
that force and provide protest to act with a
negative reactions having being deprived,
under such legislation, all other forms of
redress unless exceptionally well resourced.

If MP personalty participate in stripping a
societys right to protest in a legal non vio-
lent its means they are actively responsible
for the gap that are now springing up in NZ
between those who do have power and those
who they would make powerless under such
laws. Laws which ultimately do little to pro-
tect the long term sovereign interest of NZs
own citizens against in contrast the legal and
fscal clout of multinational corporate who
ultimately stand to have their commercial
agendas only enhanced by such legislation.
Especially when the combine power of such
act is put in force. Big sticks dont create
obedient dogs only ugly natured dogs more
likely to bite back.
For such laws will be executed as stand
alone bills but works in their most draco-
nian form when brought into force against
a subject simultaneously. In this manner the
legislation not only takes away the right to
protest against the state, via legal non vio-
lent means, but it then takes away a citizens
right to literally feed & medicate themselves
& their familys (as they choose to see ft as
responsible law abiding citizens who can be
trusted to make as adults rational decisions
concerning their own personal welfare).
As graduate of political science and history
who focused on the study of terrorism there
are few times I have ever found that political
violence can ever be condoned.

The exception however is when a state make
the mistake of giving no quarter .Of not just
denying its citizens the right to lawfully pro-
test but then deny those citizens the right to
seek address in cases where the states action
can be proved not only to be prejudice and
present an unfair bias but directly risk the
safety and well being of the citizens, their
friends and family, which many increasingly
feel the food bill does and similar proposed
legislation does.

Bad legislation risks unleashing a ugly
response in a country which has had little
history of genuine politically motivated
violence in over 150 years (minus the state
sponsored Rainbow Warrior Affair con-
ducted by foreign government not domestic
activists). These laws are danger to political
stability of NZ and to NZ democracy and
attack the very foundation upon which the
concept of democracy was borne.

Not only in such circumstances do such laws
when put into legislation set the conditions
for social violence to unfold but historically
where ever this has happened violence has
being inevitable. These laws in short make
in the context of NZ history, its long term
history of political stability, no sense and do
nothing but create a problem -

Gardens move people in different ways
according to where, when and how they
have lived their lives, their collective
memories and cultural experiences. We are
all caught up in some way with what has
gone before.
It is a space which gathers around itself
a history to which assumptions cling. To
some extent assumptions from histori-
cal precedents determined from antiquity
infuence us, but more importantly we
are infuenced by our own history and by
moving around in other peoples culture
and beliefs.
To the modern mind the idea of gardens
as conveyors of meaning is an unfamiliar
one. Yet a garden can convey meaning in
a similar way that a building can. Like a
good poem, a garden contains many levels
of meaning and draws a different response
from every individual. For on the personal
level, only you know the meaning of your

Looking for a preserve, chutney, relish
or pickle just like your Grandma used
to make? Then look no further, because
French Chef Gilbert Prevort from The Loan
& Mercantile is the creator of the most
amazing condiments using the freshest
North Otago produce.
How it all started...
Fleur Sullivan, owner of Fleurs Place in
Moeraki, was the visionary behind the
opening of The Loan & Mercantile, a tavern
and eating house in Oamarus historic
precinct. The Loan & Merc (as its known
to locals) developed a wide range of North
Otago renowned produce into preserves,
chutneys, relishes, pickles and other
specialty lines. And it was through a great
working relationship with Fleur when it all
started for French Chef Gilbert Prevort.
Gusto; its all a matter of taste when
it comes to freshly made Italian pasta!
Taking the best four, free range eggs,
extra virgin olive oil and salt, Mark creates
handmade pasta with love. Selling ready to
eat packs at the Oamaru Farmers Market,
it will make your weeknight dinners quick
and easy! Simply add a sauce and voila. A
healthy meal that the kids will love too.
How it all started...
Asta La Pasta started with Marks love
of Italian food after working as a Chef in
Wellington at litaliano Caffe in Tinakori
Road, Thorndon. When he headed home
to Oamaru, he came up with the idea of
making pasta himself.

NZ may as well hang a sign saying Toxic
waste pirates unwelcome, because, whatever
fee is imposed on those who dare transgress,
it would be nothing compared to the proft to
be made from their trade. Especially when
insurance is included into the booty.
No proof exists that this was the case in
the Rena case but the fact remains the
Mediterranean Shipping Company have a
nasty history which extends to deliberate
dumping of toxic waste and then lying about it
To recap from my DEADLINE frst blog on
the Rena (
MSC not only have a horrifc history of not
only shipping toxic waste but of deliberately
spilling oil and waste.
In Israel, MSC deliberately leaked oil, using
a pipe ftted in the ship into the harbor.See
-- Bunkerworld News - Latest News - Israeli
court imposes countrys highest ever fne for
oil spill.
In England, MSC Carla spilt open, pouring
radioactive barrels into the British Channel
after the old ship, badly maintained, broke up.
Toxic waste was also found on the wreck of
the MSC Napoli and along British beaches
from yet another UK incident, the MSC
NapoliDisaster: Containers Washed Up
In India, in 2010, MSC Chitra-MV Khadija
Oil Spill caused millions in damage. headline/2010-
In the UK, tonnes of used syringes and
condoms rejected from Brazil were sent back
after containers under the guise of recyclable
plastic on an MSC ship sent to Brazil were
found to be actually illegal waste.
MSC was later fned by government of Brazil
for their role in illegal toxic waste dumping.
While in the USA, MSC was to illustrate their
sense of corporate responsibility by trying
to cover up their role in toxic dumping , an
action which resulted in MSC fned by Justice
Department for Deliberate Criminal Action.
see also #06-055: 02-01-06 MSC Ship
Management Sentenced For Oil Pollution
Management (Hong Kong) Limited a Hong
Kong-based container ship company has
pleaded guilty and was sentenced
to pay a $10 million criminal fne after
admitting to engaging in conspiracy,
obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence,
false statements and violating t].
MSC Ship Management would, in the end,
plead guilty. But only because authorities gave
them no other chance and were determined to
make the maritime frm accountable.
On 2 Nov 2010, The Maritime Union of
Australia would raise serious concerns over
the Flag of Convenience (FOC) shipping
system, after another near disaster when the
Liberian-fagged MSC Basel ran aground off
Brisbane yesterday morning. The ship is also
suspected of being involved in radioactive
shipments and is licensed to ship major
hazards class A.
As for the MV Rena and MSC New Zealand
operations, the MSC Basel is a ship that, in
fact, regularly visits Wellington and Lyttelton
and should also be more closely monitored by
environmentalist groups.
As for the Rena, an excellent Radio Live
interview with a Bluff seaman, who had
worked on the Rena, and knows both the Rena
and MSCs shocking conditions, highlights
the frms reputation which extends to the
delightful nickname of More Shits Coming
that the frm is known worldwide by port
workers. The comment section on this website
may in fact be the origins of persistent rumour
that the Rena is carrying yellow cake or other
radioactive cargo. One comment on the site
states, I heard a caller on
Radio Live saying Rena had
been intercepted by Russian
and American Navy ships,
looking for radioactive
Since then DEADLINE
has attempted to contact
both Grant Dyson of
Braemar Howells UK who
are handling the Rena
salvage operations and Dr
Vim Nijhof, the manager
of the National Radiation
Laboratory, and Maritime
NZ to ask the following
Are they are aware that the
MV Rena has regularly
docked at ports in Australia
associated with the shipment
of yellow cake raw uranium
Are they aware that this
specifc ship has been alleged
to have been inspected by US and Philippines
authorities in relation to the shipment of
radioactive material (nature unknown)?
Are they aware of the shipping frms
extensive reputation for shipping toxic waste
illegally and not cooperating with either
authorities or media?
Maritime NZ media spokesman, Sophie
Hazlehurst, confrmed 32 container identifed
as hazardous, including the cryolite, but was
unable to answer the vast majority of our
inquiries, as she did not want to prejudice
current investigations which included the
ships and the companys history and how
these were relevant to the accident. Ms
Hazlehurst was able to confrm that they
identifed the cryolite after media inquiries
were made but the media queries were never
followed up and were ,as she understands, in
fact unrelated to MSC disclosure. When asked
to clarify this against Maritime NZs own web
site which states : The contents of these 21
containers were not declared as dangerous
goods in the original manifest provided to
MNZ and as required under the International
Maritime Dangerous Goods Code...The
manifest records the product as Cover Bath
Material and Pure Tapped Bath Material.
This is aluminum trisodium hexafuoride, a
by-product of the aluminum smelting process
also known as cryolite. MSC identifed 11
containers of dangerous goods. MNZ was also
provided with a copy of the manifest.
It is the responsibility of the shippers or
freight forwarders to correctly identify and
label goods. MNZ sought a thorough review
of the manifest some weeks ago, following
queries from media about material that could
have come from an aluminum smelter.
However, the cryolite was not correctly
labeled, and not recognized as a dangerous
good. MNZ did not receive confrmation that
the cryolite had not been mislabeled until
22 November nearly two months after the
accident when MNZ had already contacted
the frm and being told only container had
hazardous goods. In other words, MSC only
came clean once the presence of a dangerous
cargo had already being identifed.
When asked in fact how it could be deemed
that MNZ action were not related to the media
query and therefore MSC action seen in light
of coming clean only after being caught red
handed lying to Maritime NZ, Ms Hazlehurst
responded that she was unable to answer that
as she did not have the relevant information
in front of her. Ms Hazlehurst likewise was
unable to confrm monitoring of the Rena was
taking pace but as to whether the ship was
being monitored for other material including
radioactive material she advised that we
contact the frm in charge of the ships salvage
operations (Fitza) and that Maritime New
Zealand records of the current hazardous
goods on board the MV Rena where largely
reliant on the information provided by the
shipping company. In other words, the public
would just have to take the word of frm
with a history of criminal action and fraud at
their word when MNZ accepted the strong
assurance by MSC that there are no other
potentially dangerous goods on board that
have not been declared.
DEADLINE rang the number of the both the
cargo and ship salvage operators respectively
several times and, to date, none of their
appointed media spokes people have picked
up the phone to answer queries. We also
contacted MSC NZ agents directly, seeking
to submit questions to them, including their
past history of being involved in shipping
contraband through NZ, such as the discovery
last year of MSC containers found to be
carrying Chinese made armaments parts (the
third such arms- related discovery in Dunedin
since 2003 when both missile components
and the radioactive by product tantalum were
unearthed in containers at the Port of Otago.
DEADLINE then contacted The National
Radiation Laboratory manager, Wim
Nijhofs, who was then asked to comment
on above normal radiation levels taken by
DEADLINES own source, taken form car
windscreen in Dunedin after some light
rain this afternoon, that returned 0.32
microSieverts per hour, mostly alpha and beta
[gamma waves], leading our specialists to
respond ,Its here.
Dr Wims responded, Thats a very, very low
reading, probably attributable to background
radiation. but then admitted, when we
pointed out source was doctorate level physic
student who specialized in radioactive health
and safety, that he could not be sure and
verifcation was diffcult as the NRL was
operating on a make- shift basis following
the December Christchurch quake. Dr Wims
concluded that, as far as he was aware, the
NRL were not liaising with Maritime Services
or the salvage teams and were not involved in
monitoring or taking readings.
Relevant to why NZ should be concerned by
MSC presence in NZ and the exact content
of the Rena is the article: Why Is This Cargo
Container Emitting So Much Radiation? which reads: On July 13,
2010, MSC cargo container arrived in Genoa,

The brain child of Tomas Zahradka who
has a passion for everything which
can be fown - helicopters, airplanes,
wingsuits, parachutes, kites - you name
it. Tomas worked in aviation industry
for almost over 8 years as a skydiving
instructor, wingsuit instructor and fnally
as a helicopter instructor until he started
building the SimPit.
Tomas interests in simulators began in
1991 playing the F117 stealth fghter
and the legendary Elite on good old
ZX Spectrum. Tomas states back then
all games ran on the special and super
powerful graphic chip called imagination
- I used to sit in front of a small 14 Black
and White TV till late at night imagining
all the fantastic cockpits and scenery
around myself - something that inspires
me still...growing up I got hooked on
science fction and Ive dreamt about
owning one of the VFX1- the frst virtual
reality helmets, and living and working in
cyber space. Later on Ive become
the proud owner of VR920 the grand,
grand, grandchild of VFX 1.
In 2009 I Tomas decided to change careers
from skydiving instructor and
became a helicopter pilot/instructor.
Naturally when I started learning to
fy I started looking for something like that
around for helicopter training - nothing.

So I started building a small SimPit myself
to help myself through the training. Lack
of funds and expensive hardware forced
me to think about alternatives, and 3D
technology came out as the cheapest and
the best option Since then Simpit wings
have spread and currently only the sky is
the limit.
The Mission Options:
The SimPit offers an affordable,
professionally crafted 3D multi aircraft
simulator with pseudo holographic
environment (just like the star trek
HoloDeck) for entertainment and fight
instruction. The unit provides a safe,
very effective and entertaining learning
environment for potential aviation
students, students, commercial pilots and
the general public.
For general entertainment the SimPit
offers variety of fight missions, local and
online competitions, and users are able to
join others online. You can fy anything
from Pioneering aircraft up to most
modern military jets currently in service,
fy for fun or engage in search and rescue
scenarios or full on combat missions
The SimPit also provide with an excellent
aircraft and environment simulator in a 3D
simulated environment allowing students
and pilots to prepare for fight training,
aircraft type ratings, fight missions and
emergency procedures training.
Studentsrequire less dual time in aircraft
(with instructor on board) and thus saving

distilleries use distinctive spring waters and
infuence their typically grain neutral spirit
with subtle yet salivating blends that appeal
directly to a whole new, generally younger
and more experimental generation of whiskey
For the last six years, Terry Knight and
Rachel Raine of Schnapp Dragon Distillery
in Takaka have been using the simple
ingredients of malted barley, yeast and
Te Waikoropupu aquifer water thats
been underground 10 years to make their
distinctive Waitui single malt. Peated in the
distilling process with Chatham Island peat, it
is then subtly infused with a hint of manuka
honey to give its rich aroma and favour.
Only small batches of the 37 percent spirit is
produced, which is then stored for four years
in oak barrels before hand bottling. Explains
Terry; Although a lot of distilleries dont
allude to it, honey has been long been used
for sweetening up whiskey. The delicate oak
gives the whiskey its weight but the manuka
honey defnitely delivers an almost toffee
taste thats in perfect balance with the malt.
It takes away the garish taste that whiskey
defnitely presents for some.
Schnapp Dragons distinctly Golden Bay
range now also includes 14 other lines of fruit
liquers, honey and fruit wines and a range of
citrus cellos, all from fruit harvested locally
from organic orchards and citrus groves.
Terry says the inspiration for his operation
came from a trip around Europe. Every
village seemed not only to have a small
distillery that processed excess fruit into
wines, spirits and liqueurs, but its facilities
were often used as a processing centre by the
wider community for turning their excess
crops into food products. This business model
could work well for many NZ towns.
Terry started his working career as a carpenter
in Christchurch, taking off for his OE before
then settling in Golden Bay 35 years ago. He
was one of the co-instigators and builders of
Awaroa Lodge in the early 1990s, then later
set up making honey mead and developing
his Le Champs de Miel honey bubbly, a
world frst for a methode traditionalle from
honey. When the cost of manuka honey dealt
to that business, Terry set up his distillery
where he was joined by his partner Rachel.
Their main equipment is a three-metre high
all-glass triple distillation still with a 200
litre capacity. Around fve years ago they also
bought a large quantity of 14-year old rum in
barrels to blend with their range of liqueurs
and toppings.

Distinctive blends
refect changing
Gone are the days when whiskey was
distilled in a few, generally colder
countries. Many brands now come out
of distilleries in tropical countries like
India where the mass produced drink is
often blended with imported Scotch and
sweetened to taste. Up to recently, Australia
and NZs whiskey making efforts were
often described as experimental. But
that failed to recognise a strong down
under tradition that goes all the way back
to the early whalers. The frst recorded
kiwi distiller was Owen McShane, who by
1838 was supplying whaling settlements
around the South Coast, from Waikawa
to Preservation Inlet. Nowadays, regional

Climo states Being one of the True
Kaitiaki (Natural gaurdians)of pounamu
i have always been round pounamu my
entire life. Though i didnt start carving till
later it always was a fascination. I loved
looking at the pieces in Museums that
my Tipuna (ancestors) had done, mostly
simple forms all done by hand. With
tools of today makes just about anything
possible, the only limits being the brain. I
mess around with other arts as well having
my own band, a 3 piece, we play all sorts
of events playing what we call Twisted
Bluegrass . With carving , i love the fact
that whatever is made from Jade is around
forever as this stuff dont rot in time. I
get my inspirations from my Tipuna and
good ole Mother Nature which in turn
brings the Art from the Heart,

Thats were I came into contact with everyone
full time and in 2004 I launched my label
FREAKWARE to the public at a deco pub
situated at a main intersection of down town
Wellington. I was fortunate enough to snag
the national news for the launch as they were
and obtained a fantastic opportunity to show
the underground on prime time, something they
dont show. Since then I have developed my
initial stage ideas into live fashion events that
have numbered 43 since September 2004. Thats
not including the numerous t.v. and newspaper
profles as well as the mags from u.s., japan and
aussie, then of course our photoshoots that are
They have been in numerous places throughout
the capital from large enough pubs, clubs,
mansions, private houses and the cemetery that
was a public park since 1893 and has since had a
motorway ploughed through it, hence my reason
to highlight the area as the cemetery had buried
the founding families of the capital. all a bit
disturbing really
Our latest concept for live performance has been
to umbrella the event with the title BLACK
CIRCUS! In that we combine fashion sections
with live performers, alternating the sets.

Healthy Skincare
Made In Dunedin
Ive been paying a fortune for skin care and
your creams are better. You should put your
prices up. This is a comment Penelope Sell has
often heard since opening her pure plant based
skincare and soap shop in Dunedin called REAL
Adesire to have and provide genuine, all
natural skincare, soap and shampoo that was
affordable and actually improved peoples skin,
inspired Penelope Sell to create her popular
body, bath and healing range made on site in her
Dunedin shop. I love working with plant oils
and essential oils for their healing and rejuvena-
tion properties. I was tired of all the false claims
of being natural and particularly tired of all the
plastic packaging which actually leaches nasty
chemicals into the product, as well as being
bad for the environment. I use glass packaging
which can be re-flled in the shop or recycled by
me on site.
Exorbitant prices that went along with the
beauty charade was also annoying. Youre
paying for marketing, she says. My marketing
is mostly word of mouth.
With many common chemicals in skin and hair
care coming up as suspect carcinogens it is be-
coming more and more important to watch what
you use on your body. Skin is a porous organ, it
absorbs what you put on it. Sodium laureth sul-
phate, ammonium lauryl sulphate and titanium
dioxide, are still used in lots of so called natural
products. These chemicals are harsh and used
in industrial foor cleaning products and paint
strippers. I use plant derived ecocert certifed
organic and sustainable surfectants for shampoo
which is derived from coconut and sugar. It
makes for a much more gentle product safe for
babies and those with sensitive skin.
I didnt know how good these products would
be, she says. My skin and hair has defnitely
improved since Ive developed these products.
My customers are hugely supportive and tell
their friends about the products. They come
back with compliments which is a great encour-
So dont miss out. Next time you need a sham-
poo, moisturiser, eye cream, healing product or
delicious essential oil bathing treat head into

Possum Merino blends.
Developed in Port Chalmers, NZ.Possum fur was
chosen because it is simply the best material
available for the purpose. The only other fur with
this characteristic is the polar bear. As you would
expect this gives possum fur outstanding thermal
qualities. It feels like it radiates heat.
As an introduced and unwanted species in NZ, the
possum is responsible for endangering native flora
and fauna, the use of the fur is therefore a positive
ecological action, contributing to the ongoing
survival of birds such as the kiwi.

Sunny Chen gives an insight into the art of
Hang Sang
How do illnesses and suffering come
about? How should we deal with them?
On the broader level, illness is brought
about by genetic infuences from the
past and everything in our consciousness
and behaviour that precludes health, eg;
unhealthy emotions and unhealthy life
More specifcally, all conditions can be
attributed to disorders of Qi - Qi defciency,
Qi blockage, poor quality of Qi, or a
combination of all these. By replenishing or
unblocking Qi, or by improving the quality
of Qi, the source of the disease is addressed
and the illness will be diminished or
Although you work effectively on illness
alone, the emphasis of Qi is more on
treating the whole person since suffering,
including illness, occurs when there are
problems in life. Most of us experience
ignorance, attachment, confusion and other
problems which need to be addressed if
long-term healing and improvement of life
are to be brought about.
The Principals are;
Jing - the physical body and all the
physical structure of the body.
Qi - life force, vital force.
Shen - the consciousness, the spirit, the
true self and the soul.
When the three elements work together,
nourish each other, transform each other,
and infuence each other. For example,
Shen is the master of Qi, and Qi will
infuence Jing.
Sonny is a master of the Hang Sun
Technique which using the Jing qi and
Shen aims to combine the mind, the body
and the spirit to function as one (the state of
alert relaxation).
Controlling the breath with our pure
consciousness regulates the internal
energy and attunes the body to become
more receptive for self healing. The mind
and bodys energy centres stabilise and
harmonise for daily activities - to enjoy life.

Proper ft is the key when it comes to dressing
the men in the wedding party. To determine
the ft, try on the suit or tuxedo, including the
correct shirt and shoes. Place your arms at your
sides, fngers extended. The hem of the jacket
should be no longer than your middle fnger.
The sleeve should grace the top of your hand,
and your shirt cuff should peek out from the
jacket sleeve no more than half an inch. Your
trousers should skim the heel of your shoe in
back and break slightly over the tops of your
shoes in front. Because the extra buttons on
a double-breasted jacket draw the eye toward
your midsection, that style looks best on
someone whos tall and slender. To create a
more debonair silhouette, consider having some
extra padding put in the shoulders and the waist
taken in a bit.
Whats your style?
Whether you go for a traditional or trendy look,
you need to understand the elements of style at
your disposal and how to carry them off.
Cutaway or morning coat: In its
traditional design, this coat is for the most
formal morning weddings. Coats are black or
gray with a single button at the waist and one
broad tail at back. You wear this style of coat
with a winged-collared dress shirt, ascot, and
striped trousers.
Dinner jacket: In classic white or ivory
or a subtle pattern of the same, with peaked
lapels or shawl collar. Works well in summer
months or in warm climates, in the afternoon
or evening, and is considered an appropriate
substitute for a standard tuxedo. Great for a
casual wedding or a rehearsal dinner .Available
for purchase or rent at a formalwear shop.
Stroller coat: Variation of the morning coat,
usually hip length. Looks good with fancy
Tails: Ajacket thats short in front with two
longer tails hanging in back. Worn with braces
(suspenders) and a white pique shirt, vest,
and bow tie (as in white tie and tails). Very
Traditional tuxedo or black tie: Usually
worn after 6 p.m., but can appear at a formal
daytime wedding anytime after noon. Ablack
or gray jacket with a single button is the most
classic. Has shawl, peak, or notched lapels.
Updated black tie: The evening suit is a
newer variation on the classic tux with the satin
or grosgrain trim on the lapel and pants legs,
albeit subtly. These tuxes are worn with a black
shirt and a regular tie in lieu of a bow tie, and
often with a belt rather than suspenders.
The gorgeous dark suit: For a dressy but
not formal wedding or for the groom who
absolutely wont wear a tuxedo. Choose
charcoal, black, or navy and a solid-color or
subtly patterned tie to dress it up.
Finding the right suit, tuxedo, and accessories
can take as much time as locating the perfect
wedding gown. If youre getting married in a
popular wedding month and are planning to
rent for yourself and/or the ushers, reserve the
tuxedos as soon as possible so that you dont
wind up with the dregs. Because youll be on
your honeymoon, have the best man return
rented outfts the frst working day after the
If you do rent, you can usually pick up the tux
two or three days in advance.

DEADLINE introduces South Dunedins
Piano Specialist Jim Strang an artisan
whose life is dedicate to a very old
invention that has constantly shown it s
always capable of doing something new
and surprising.
The beauty of pianos, both in physical
appearance and as the ultimate musical
instrument, has led their ongoing popularity
throughout these ever changing times.
Appreciation and passion for this unique
and complex instrument is what drives Jim
Strang and his Dunedin company Piano
Jim was introduced to the piano industry
by his father Harry, a prominent Dunedin
musician and piano tuner for many years.
Jim completed a four year piano technician
apprenticeship in February 1984, and for the
next two years was in charge of the piano
department at Dunedins Bristol Piano Co.
In 1986 he also began contracting to
Newmans Piano Co in Timaru, and working
around the countryside with his father
Harry. This lasted until
his departure to London in
July 1988.
While there he spent 18
months in a workshop
situation, gaining
considerable piano
rebuilding experience and
refning his skills. He also
passed the British Piano
Tuners Guild Expert piano
tuning exam with merit,
and became a member of
the BPTG.
Piano Specialists was opened in 1994. A
retail outlet exclusive to the restoration and
retailing of pianos. Achance meeting in 2007
let to Jim teaming up with master technician
Jochen Gueldner, who had recently moved
to NZ, and had been out of the trade for
some time. This has led to a very successful
partnership where Jochen looks after most
of the piano restoration and Jim does the
tuning, a circuit that covers Central Otago,
Southland, as well as Dunedin.
This also allows them to assess pianos for
purchase and/or restoration in these areas,
and means that they can service what they
sell.Supplying their discerning customers
with quality restored European pianos is
what Piano Specialists is all about. While a
lot of people play the piano, not everyone
knows what to look for when buying, or
how to properly care for this complicated
Following is some free advice for
prospective piano buyers:
Pianos are extremely sensitive to humidity
fuctuation, and can easily be seriously
damaged by very high, or low humidity.
With the piano having had its hay day
around one hundred years ago, and with a lot
of those old pianos still foating around, it
is very diffcult for the uninitiated to tell the
ones that have potential from the ones that
dont. With over 8000 separate parts, and
over 5000 different brand names, it pays to
seek advice from an experienced technician.
When looking to purchase an instrument for
a beginner, people generally do not want to
invest a lot of money in case this is a passing
phase, but please resist the temptation to
pick up an old dunger.
It is diffcult enough to learn to play an
instrument, without the instrument itself
holding you back. Children especially will
become discouraged when no amount of
practice can make them sound good, which
will often lead to them giving up, and
their potential life long enjoyment of the
piano being lost.As well as sapping your
motivation, this type of piano can also sap
your bank account with the necessity for
extra tunings and frequent repairs. Any
student will be more motivated to learn
on a decent instrument,
and making more of an
investment is motivating
within itself.
Once restored by Piano
Specialists, a piano will
give many years of trouble
free pleasure. All pianos are
guaranteed, delivery and
initial in-home tuning is
usually included. For those
clients for whom an acoustic
piano is just not practical,
Piano Specialists are also the agents for the
Korg range of digital pianos.
The shop at 203 King Edward St Dunedin
is open Wednesday and Thursday 10am to
5pm, and Friday 9.30am till 2.30pm, or by
When visiting the Premises, you may be
served by the third, up and coming member
of the team, the very personable and talented
James Dickson.James is a grade eight
pianist whose personal commitment to
understanding the workings of the piano is
leading towards him becoming Dunedins
next trained piano technician.

Why produce
The life blood of any business is cash. A
business may be making good profts but can
still go out of business if it is short on cash.

Acashfow forecast attempts to predict the
timing of a businesss cash income and cash
expenditure. With this knowledge you can
plan for any big outgoings that may occur,
e.g. new plant and machinery purchases, tax
and GST.

Cashfow forecasts are a management tool
that can be used in the decision making
process. It is much like driving a car.
You normally look out of the window
screen looking forward (forecasting) and
occasionally refer to the rear vision mirror
(historical information).
Acashfow forecast is used to assess possible
funding requirements and to explore the
likely fnancial consequences of alternative
scenarios. The forecast can be used to
prevent major planning errors, anticipate
problems, and to identify areas where
improvements can be made to the cashfow.
With the economy struggling and the
exchange rate variations, there is a cash
squeeze on many businesses. It is advisable
to plan ahead and one method is to look
at the likely effects this may have on cash
resources. It is far easier to plan remedial
action now than after an event.
Fore-warned is fore-armed.

Italy. It had torrents of radiation coming out of
it. No one knew what was inside, and no one
knew what to do next and heres the crazy thing
-millions like this toxic payload pass thru Italy
every year in trade worth billions.
Unlike Italy NZ does not have, as John Key the
Prime Minister of NZ admitted, the equipment
to make such detection possible so we have
no idea what comes in and out of our ports. Or
what might be on any given ship in NZ waters
including the sinking MV Rena.
And, as we know, radioactive waste is shipped
through NZ all the time. We know the RENA
carried toxic materials but as to what exactly
we now have to rely on a company with a
history of dishonest behavior andapparently
little effort by the authorities to monitor the ship
forsign of any other hazardous goods.
New Zealanders need to be asking these
questions over and over - over and over again
and keep asking tell we get actual answers
because were not getting them now - thats for
DEALDINE advises members of the public
who remain worried as to the precise cargo and
dangers the Rena may pose to contact MP Nick
Smith, Minister for the Environment.
and express their concerns and then forward Dr
Smiths response back to DEALDINE or other
media outlets.

Sadly, the MSC is not the only dodgy maritime
operator at sea in our parts, as we see when we
look into the history of the MVTycoon which
is currently spilling oil into sea off Christmas
Island. And like the Rena, took place as
consequence of crew undertaking actions which
seemed odd in terms of the obvious obstacles
present and the expected course of action.
Cargo and the missing container carrying by
MNZ more than 30,000kg of toxic material
aside, the Rena wreck, if nothing else has
shown NZ there are gaping holes in the security
of our ports and public safety, via the issue of
what is exactly passing through our waters.
It also exposes major issues on how can NZ
even think of further oil exploration. Not
at least until we have shored up our ability
to react to such an incident and have better
understanding of the chemicals used both to
disperse and conduct oil exploration which the
likes of Dr Nick Smith are clearly in denial of.

where really open, ya could spot it in your day.
Its like when you think something, it happens
without even saying anything. The other day
we got given two computers with out screens
and I thought: we need to screens. 15 minutes
later, two separate people walk through our
door with a screen each and here is me thinking
I just thought of those screens we needed and
here they are in front of me.
Once upon a time I didnt understand thought.
sometimes I still dont but when my eyes
opened up and the walls came crashing down.
the whole world changed around me. If I was
happy, everyone was happy. If I was sad,
everyone was sad. its like Im in the movie The
Matrix and I can adjust my thoughts to work
the surroundings and take a thought from my
head and make it real. I challenge you to try it.
Sit an old computer in the corner. Make sure
its broken, maybe a ibm 386. acknowledge its
there every time you walk past it so when you
look back youll fnd the new one is right in
front of you.
So every edition now, will write about my
thoughts. I will let you in on them and
hopefully they take us somewhere together. Just
maybe we can open some eyes together

Ireland and the West Coast have always had
links since 1860's and by 1870s the Irish
comprised over one-ffth of New Zealands
immigrant population. The number of Irish
(commonly from Munster in the south-west of
Ireland) to be found on the coast being twice
as many as all the women in total. Despite the
fact that emigration agents like John Marshman
advised, Irish emigrants should be refused
They came frst to Otago from 1861, and then
in more pronounced numbers to the West Coast
from 1865. Many being soldiers who had been
discharged during the New Zealand Wars, and
there was a continuing migration into Auckland.

keep an eye on
live music and a wild dancing of jigs is a given.
So get on your green and come on down to
the green green beauty of the west coast in

sure to have a spectacular St Paddy's my little

" There's an utter,utter joy and pleasure
in working with paint that fulfls me
tremendously. I feel like I'm fying."
Clare Reillys works express an underlying
connection with the natural environment,
in particular an empathy with native birds
combined with a celebration of the joyous
aspects of life.
Serene and meditative, her paintings are sacred
works for a secular age.
Her painting career has spanned the last three
decades, and she continues to paint full-time in
In recent years Clare has completed many
private commissions and her works have
found their way into collections in Argentina,
North America, Israel, Europe, Australia and
the Middle East, as well as throughout New
Zealand. She has exhibited extensively over
the past three decades.
For the past three years, Clare has worked
closely with the Banks Peninsula Conservation
Trust on the Tui Restoration Project, and was
given the opportunity to be part of the 2010
Tui Capture and Transfer team that worked on
Maud Island, as well as providing resources for
fund-raising the project.
