A NEED FOR ECONOMIC BLUE PRINTS PROVIDED PER REGION OF NZ – MARINE COASTAL SURVEILLANCE BEEF UPS & WORLD NEWS BITES – 18.8.12
The mood of New Zealand tonight:
We are getting more water safety, coastal management conscious. The look tonight is NZ and American coast lines staff working together. We also see value in diverting our attention to third world nations real woes to realise a degree of gratitude in light of a failed economy per NZ citizen in the last ten years. The footage helps restore our own sense of gratitude while putting a noble spin on it, with a health focus from NZ.
Christchurch drives a lot of the news tonight as well. Despite appearances it is a region with a solid economic plan outlined in the future. (All other regions must do the same now). And: our world rugby champs of rugby football have a game on in Aussie. Weathers patchy crap still. :)
News at 6pm: TVOne with Karen Olsen, Gregg Boyd, Bernadine Oliver Kerby and Toni Street on news.
6pm: Karen: A fine day for most. Plenty of rain cloud looming in the Tasman. Greg Boyd: Tonight drama off the Coromandel Coast.
Missing Fisherman: 1 of 2 men fishing in Petone. 1 swam to safety. One drowned. Wear life jackets is the message.
6.01pm Bernadine: Five fisherman saved. Sunday’s film crew captured footage on board HMNZ Canterbury. No life raft no dinghy on board an 11 metre launch stager.
A coast guard vessel from Great Barrier Island is on it: The Canterbury Seasprit. Ltd Commander Ryan speaks in his American accent. Cmdr Sean Stewart, shortly after being rescued their vessel sunk. A VHF radio on board.
Ray Burge, operations manager. The fisher people hit a rock. Sharon Fergusson reporting. The captain was qualified, goes the compliance tale. Snr Const. Gary Larson. All wore life jackets and were grateful. In other reports: 2 other men rescued off Whangaparoa coast. Ray Burge. They had a cell phone. No life jackets. To be safer: Every boat should have a VHF radio and flares.
New Plymouth: The missing 3 rock climbers who disappeared 10 days ago. Divers are still searching.
ChCh: Red zone residents still getting grief with their homes insurance. Still in the news. Lisa Davies reported.
6.07pm: More news from Christchurch. Car enthusiasts have held a car rally for the Christchurch Cathedral rebuild project. Our petrol heads tribes of Pakehas are out in full force in Otautahi.
6.08pm: Lt Rhys Jones questions Sargeant Creaghan’s plight surviving an air crash. “The air force should have done more to prevent the tragedy.” The crash took three lives. Dave Greenberg, an American accent speaks for Westpac helicopters (their NZX shares are up this week too btw – good ad placement for Westpac bank in prime time).
Sarah Bradley, reports: The defence force needs to be able to know the limits of being able to push our ships and air crew to protect others. If curtailed in court, not a good sign of confidence for the force.
6.10pm: Mike Moore, the USA is looking for a stronger economic presence in Asia-Pacific.
(Added: The US is in severe heat, drought conditions. The USA also overprints money. These are the points to bargain with. Should NZ consider land swaps with Americans back in America, to help bring parity to the currency issues due to overprinting the greenback?
The context of the USA being attractive: NZ’s annual wage is at $30k lower than Autralia per annum, or 90% lower to ACT in Australia p.a. If we don’t look at Aussie we feel great. However, Kiwis need more ‘money,’ as it’s extrememly mean right now, yet what kind of money?
If the USA is beefing up presence in Satellite Island territory nations (especially in future oil, fuels, land-property sales deals), how can the Indigenous Peoples of the South Pacific win, as much as the American investors winning too? That’s Mr Moore’s role to help show in the South Pacific so NZ and the USA can rock out a show together. It’s all good.
Economic Planning Blue Prints per Region: At the moment, we have a 3D model of a 20 year plan of ChCh rebuild designed. The model is valued at $30billion. It has a price tag ticket on it, theoritically. The tax payer by inference must pay for it.
So: Each region in NZ should have a similar economic 3D model presented to the NZ people as well, clearly depicting what each existing NZ citizen can expect of their own region in NZ, and what they all will get out of trade deals, such as the US trade program Mr Moore is explaining tomorrow on the telly.
How can we show this to NZ citizens, our priority stakeholders in NZ, regardless of what anyone else would have us beleive?
Where are the blue-prints? If they haven’t yet been whipped up, let’s get them going on and rock em out.
Based on the blue-prints, who are the foreign investors NZ wants to co-partner with to build parts of the economic models presented. What foreign countries are best suited as co-investment partners per region? Those kinds of talks need to happen.
You could almost set up regional TV, a TV channel, or stream it online. Each region has the plan on it. Accessible 24 hours a day to view. The economic garden of the region is shown in it. Citizens can see very clearly, where their future’s economically fit into that garden plan of a region’s economy. So Mayors, local MPS step up and just do it. Name your foreign investment partners of choice. Then go get them. A procative strategy might help, unlock the deadlock mindset of ‘wait for government to do it.’ The numbers show, such an approach -eg: $90k less per NZ citizen than Aussie, in take home pay over the next 3 years - hasn’t worked. Therefore citizens need to rise up and incite government to be more awesome too. Otherwise -$90k and the pretenders won’t be there, to cop the blame for posturing and not delivering. So, we are left with little choice but to act like a government is required to as citizens and make the government’s job more of a joy. Most importantly, our own freaking lives, lifestyle and future way better and a joy too. Apparently, this is the best way to go!
Again, so we’re all clear as to why?: Each year each Kiwis miss out on $30k.
Thta’s Tick, tock – robbed! So we need to move on all trade deals faster and ensure the bulk of the profits and flows, go back to NZ citizens not a few wealthy NZ citizens being absolute hogs, or being sent out of the country entirely through TransNational companies not giving back enough to Kiwis.
So: It’s exciting for American investment prospects, at this stage. In regards to oil and energy companies etc – how do Kiwis win too? Mr Moore speaks tomorrow on Q+A in looking at closing the $30k per NZ citizen deficit compared to our Aussie bros earnings. Nice one! : )
6.15pm: Russian punk band, were jailed for Hooliganism. The rock trio jailed for two years for publically challenging Vlad Putin. The story appeals to Brits and Americans mainly. Sting, Madonna, Paul McCartney all speak for the wealthy and the kids freedoms. ABC News reports Vlad has a 1 billion mansion built by his wealthy friends in Russia near the black sea. US and UK say disproportionate to the crime for the band.
6.17pm: Marikana shooting tragedy. Amy Kelly has the report of the miners at the hands of police brutality. The findings: “The wealth under the ground, is absent above. Twenty years of ‘democracy’ has bought little benefit. The hope in the wake of the brutal police killings, shows meaningful changes needed. Kiwis also protested in Auckland for the 34 deaths. John Minto: Most people in SA are worse off now, than they were under the old regime (eg: living conditions).”
(Added: The trend post GFC is very evident everywhere. The wealthy all need to be turned upside down and have their pockets emptied of half of it, in most cases).
6.19pm: Julian Assange – the case drags on.
6.20pm: Pneumonia in the third world. Joy Reid: Children die constantly. Prof David Murdoch of ChCh has been bolstered by Bill Gates money to fund a $50 million research program. The Asia-NZ foundation is supportive of journalists covering stories like this. (Added: Expect Gates to muscle into NZ in the future). A good story.
6.21pm: Steve Marshall has a beastly set of wheels. It’s a gas advert story. $1k to fill the tank up in Aussie.
Next: Rugby’s Sir Graham Henry: “AB’s – Aussies: it will be close.
Aussie’s injured captain: “Aussies will win.”
This vehicle has already been given a ticket.
Karen: Weather – “The thunder in Auckland, set off fire alarms. By 6am it was all gone.” Wow!
Today: ChCh 12. Hastings 17. Tokoroa 16. National high Whangarei 19. Fine in Auckland this evening.
6.29pm: Bernadine: Petrol stories. After dipping below $2 a litre it’s now nearing its all time high.
Sarah Bradley interviews the public: “The Price is bad,” says a Kiwi. Another puts it more simply, “How do we get from A to B? so we pay the price of gas.”
Factors of gas price rise: Eurozone, a rise in Xide tax are cited.
Jonte Mills BP spokesperson: Sale only slightly down. Mark Stockdale – demand increasing, supply isn’t. Jonte: product gone up 20% in last 6-8 weeks. Re-evaluate driving habits. So the consumers pays. Their recommend: “Food is more a priority than gas.”
(Or, in light of the $30k deficit per NZ citizen in wages each year compared to Australia, the recommend is walk to work). Lol!
Best Story of the Night: 6.31pm: South Island marino wool. Japanese company. The 3rd largest suit producers in Japan are splashing out on NZ wool. They’ve signed up for 90 tonnes of S.I wool. Graig Smith, H Dawson’s Wool trader says “good.”
Mr Kaoru (Japan) believes NZ has good products. Half a billion NZ dollars. Max Bania reports the story saying: “A suit that can be shower cleaned is what the company makes. The number of the suits will double in the next season. NZ’s Finance Minister, Bill English, says he will meet with the company too. Marketing exposure is a plus as is an actual order of incoming not outgoing money.
6.33pm: Burmingham. The crazy German Opera written between 97-2003 is amazing. “Every line of music is made up of unconventional notes. Musicians brave air elements and heights to bring the Opera’s music. Damon Albarn of Blur loves the Opera two.
6.36pm: Toni Street on Sports: Valerie Adams: Won at Stockholm in shot put. 20.26m. She beat her nearest Russian rival by 1 mtre. She gets to go home in, 2 months time.
6.41pm Steve Marshall – Rugby news. (Added: It’s good to see NZ’s rugby sports stars doing some cross-over codes sports appearances. It all helps accessibility to grow NZ’s brands and audiences, right?!). Cory Jane and budswent to rugby league match. Cory Jane‘s tweets are online.
Graham Henry: Says Quade Cooper (omitted from tonight’s team) is talented.
Richie McCaw. [The Wallabies are] all quality individuals, we’ve got a big challenge.
6.43pm: Tigers Bulldogs. Kristen Inu scored the victory with a field goal. In the 74th minute, where the Tigers had to force 6 points in 6 minutes to stay in the game and force extra time. The Bulldogs victory happened. Wow!
6.44pm: Broncos 19. Storm 18. Storm in 2nd spot behind Bulldogs on rugby league’s table now.
6,45pm Soccer: Manchester United’s Van Persie speaks. “Trust the voice within” is his message.
Dan Roan BBC. Manchester’s brand: 3 billion pounds over three years. Broadcast in 212 countries and 731 million countries. Yet soccer football has an image problem.
Soccer players make improper comments on twitter. Richard Scudamore speaks for the premiere League spokesman. Trying to be serious and not laugh at the same time, he says: [As management] “we aren’t complacent, and yet football (the players) is clearly different (from other sports code).
(Added: Much more booze involved for fans than most other codes too. Although baseball and basketball in the US could challenge that maybe in some State’s matches).
6.47pm: Cricket: England holds on no.1 status is tenuous. South Africa England match: 206/5 at stumps. –(Added: I find cricket hard to get into when the black caps need a boost).
6.48pm: Max Bania in Belclutha. Otago Rugby heartland. David Latta, Tony Brown, Jamie MacKintosh all speak on the South’s rugby getting a grass-roots revamp.
6.50pm: 9 month stint. Kirk Penney basketball. Back at his old hunting ground and as relentless as ever. Always a part of The Breakers family. Always looking forward. Looking for different experiences and different opportunities. On Sunday, he’s off to Turkey to play. He’s a talent in European leagues. Dean Vickerman Breakers assistant coach speaks too. Will we ever see him back in the breakers uniform? Who knows? Kimberly Downes reported.
(Added: Stories of the new basketball talent coming through? Young basketball players doing time in Aussie, then returning to play for NZ? Basketball players going on summer camp training in the US? Nice to see Kirk still enjoying his top level run).
Toni Streets outro is lol: Gold medallists: Drysdale, Bond, Murray are considering reviving an 8 for the next Olympics in rowing.
6.56pm: Karen. Looks stunning although weather is total crap tomorrow. “Not nice tomorrow. A big ugly trough turning up from the Tasman. Lumpy storm cloud. The beast muscles in. A frosty start over the South Island. Low cloud or fog. Wellington rain arrives in the evening.”
(And that was TVNZ’s news bites this eve – To TVNZ: Thanks for the news. Creative. :)
And hello Gizzy. Nelson. Manwatu and The North as well today).
