Orli had then made David the best pair of jeans in the world. Worn in “sullen” reverence to Orli’s superior craftsmanship, on day two David’s skin would mysteriously have a glow.
The jeans made David want to dance, so they were tagged as only his jeans, for now.
In his jeans, in the kani kani of life, dance David did.

TTG, NDA GROUP, AG-SCI & WHAT GREG MUIR’S TEAM COULD DEVELOP NEXT FOR NZ FARMERS BEST INDUSTRY INTERESTS & ENDEAVORS
The agri-tech group finished 16th on the TIN100 survey of companies set up to improve technology and research. TTG splashed $73m for the acquisition.
What’s needed now is for a company like TTG, to develop the same thing with a banking software system invention, that can then track ‘white gold’ (aka dried dairy product with the water then extracted) around the world to see if NZ farmers are achieving the best brand leverage from dairy leaving the farm gate to distribution world wide.

A QUIVER OF HAPPY TUNES – SHAMROCK, GINGER & A NGAHERE DNA-TEQUILA SHOTS ROCK CONCERT, BERRY INFUSIONS OF LIFE’S DIVERSE RHYTHMS
The ancients believed long ago, if you respect the treaty made between the sky and earth, then where the two intersect in constant dialogue, you find harmony. At the principles where they meet, are still the mysteries of Te Ao.
In the secret part of a ngahere forest he knew of in Nouveau, David gathered the fauna that he needed.
At the seaside villa, he would blend it, then run its dna through to solution stage. He would clone it and have to remix it on mass.
There was an acid rain storm brewing, he could feel it in his bones. The people in a metropolis across the world would need to drink the solution in advance to immunise the city, before the rain fell on their skin.
He contemplated how he was going to get the metropolis to do that, without causing alarm. (more…)
In the restaurant, Abdul hit the trap door of the aquarium. A glass tunnel rose up through the tank, parting the waters. The panel in front of them slid up to the roof. Abdul and David walked through the tunnel where two 1939 Nortons stood. A blast from the past of the old world.
Solar generated lights from the fields above were sensor activated in advance as they rode underground, passing side streets, between the grid of the large underground storage barns laden with grains.
After about a mile, at barn door 157 they stopped.
Inside Abdul’s office, stood some of the most advanced science equipment on the planet.
“Okay, what have you got?” (more…)
David loved visiting Nouveau. As a nation, it had grown [it's] own momentum when regions and city councils mined their own resources. The resources they mined and developed as sustainably as able. An incredibly resourceful people. They then spun the momentum into the future their own residents in the regions wanted. When you visisted Nouveau, each town and city had its own vibrancy. Eclectic cities. People were happy. (more…)
On the twelfth wing platform of the secured rooftop garden circle, David strolled through the aisle between the rows of lush bountiful green taking what he needed. He altered the the nutrient blends that feed into the garden's atmos-derived mist jets once a week, according to his body's shifting eruthrocyte and leukocytes needs. Mesculin, garlic chives and baby kamo kamo took his fancy today. The sky's light in the setting sun calmed the circadian rhythm system of the circus called his nerves from the day. (more…)

“Other Worldly: the sealed fragrance range,” is an idea buzzing through the brain.
It’s nice to have a creative brain. Sometimes…
with my Iwi entrepreneur cap on then: the no.1 issue though is: do you distill the range from Lake Vostok’s ice shelf H20, sealed off from light or air for at least 14 million years, or do you create the line sourced of H2O from elsewhere? (more…)
“The law of the suppression of radical potential” is an idea first described by Brian Winston in his book, Technologies of Seeing: Photography, Cinematography and Television. According to the law, when a communications technology is realised, its growth is suppressed through the constraining influence of already prevailing institutions and other mechanisms.
Winston shows how the law can be used as a model for describing the life cycle of many communications technologies. His approach is in particular directed against technological determinism and instead proposes that the emergence of new media and new technologies is mediated and controlled by society. (more…)
Guess what? Invention creates jobs. Innovative people know innovation creates exports. Innovation creates wealth.
Engineers can be useful at growing wealth too. Isn’t that fun news?! :)

MR WEB, SIR TIM BERNERS-LEE’S VISIT TO WELLINGTON WILL FOCUS ON CYBER SECURITY THAT ENCOURAGES OPENNESS IN BUSINESS, SOCIAL, ECONOMIC INNOVATION
An “open and uncaptureable” internet, is what Sir Tim Berners-Lee hopes to communicate in New Zealand to a Wellington audience.
in 1989, TBL was the first to communicate via proto-web technology at the European Particle Physics Laboratory, CERN. It became the world wide web. Social, economic and innovation opportunities is the main aim of his visit. The internet needs openness and transparency in the world of hypermedia matters for New Zealand and the world he believes.

“We have this tall poppy syndrome where it’s not good form to say you’re clever at something, except of course if you’re in rugby, but we’ve got to change that paradigm and celebrate what a huge dent we make on the global stage, and most people just don’t know.”

Kiwi bioscience companies secured millions in international investment and grabbed the global spotlight this year. Is granting taxpayer dollars to science and technology companies that end up doing most of their business overseas, or being acquired by an overseas company, wise?
The most globally awarded bioscience company in NZ is LanzaTech. Sean Simpson is one of a few scientists at work in the company. The clean energy and renewable chemicals technology company, [majoring in ethanol production at steel mills that churn through iron sands in their daily output] is considered in the top echelon. The company employs 85 pax.
Other companies Paul lists as being scalable are:
•Living Cell Technologies (Auckland) joint-venture with Japan’s Otsuka Pharmaceutical Factory to co-develop for the neurology industry. A deal is inked at $34 million, tentatively. (more…)
Rowing, yachting and cycling are the major winners announced as`tier one’ sports in New Zealand.
The three sports are set to get a large chunk of a $62 million sports funding pool in New Zealand.
All NZ sports and athletes are so good. Must have been hard to make that call.
[Invention of the day for the Kiwi family - not seeing the funding: How about... this. An Italian design company SBK have devised a way to convert a bike to power a boat. Now kids can go fishing while cycling--Read on @Gizmag.com].
This prezzie could be a good starter kit for the aspiring tier one junior athlete of the future in NZ. Hedge your bets. Road and sea.

Billionaire and millionaire’s favorite new make up products have arrived. New science that is fun.
A personalized blue print of your dna (in particularly your body’s cells) can now be made into stem cells and restored, to patch up the body and stave off the ageing process. The stem cell research breakthroughs are the elixor cure to repair general wear and tear.
CNN News: Sir John B. Gurdon 70 of the UK and Shinya Yamanaka 50 of Osaka Japan, have scooped The 2012 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. The award was given on Monday for work that revolutionized the understanding of how cells and organisms develop.
The groundbreaking research is set to increase longevity in the human body. The scientists discovery that “mature, specialised cells can be reprogrammed to become immature cells capable of developing into all tissues of the body,” is winner said the the Nobel Assembly, which consists of 50 professors at the Karolinska Institute.
The reprogrammed cells are new stem cells. They can then be placed into other areas of the body and the cells “are able to develop into all types of cells in the body,” the professors collective said in a statement. (more…)
3D CHAORI ACTION MOVIE CINEMA – GETTING A $1 BILLION A YEAR EARNING, MAORI & CHINESE ACTION FUSION INDUSTRY MOVING
He was a Maori Prince, a Viking of The Sun. She, a Chinese Princess from the Ming Dynasty. In a new horizon, in a mythical land on a new frontier, they were cast in an epic war to fight for their love.
What the world needs to see is 3D mythological cinema of this nature in New Zealand.
3D Chaori Cinema (Asian-friendly Maori action movie cinema) is a $1 billion a year generating industry waiting to happen in NZ. In my mind’s eye I see it growing in New Zealand. It supports the already well established 3D cinema of NZ. It just makes movies a lot quicker for the growing Asian movie market of the world.
It needs a development fund to get started. Russell Crowe the first person in the world of Maori descent to win an Oscar and Hollywood’s Lucy Liu are giving a similar concept a go in the film, Man with Iron Fists. We need to move more into 3D with Chaori cinema texts in and from New Zealand. Cliff Curtis, a Maori actor has also been a success starring in Asian nations in an Asian action star mythological film.
We have enough trial models on display in aspects of this genre to really go for it and develop it further. Chaori cinema is another strand of cinema to be developed in New Zealand to sit alongside what Sir Peter Jackson, John Barnett and newcomers like James Cameron have already achieved from New Zealand.
It is a brand new cinema strand though, that can only make the overall package more attractive when perceiving New Zealand as a stand out filmmaking nation location. It makes sense to develop Chaori cinema and Maori cinema that is Asian-markets friendly, more.
It’s an authentic visual expression of New Zealand for the wider world’s markets.
