New Zealand Prime Minister Celebrates the Act of Censorship

"The left is committed to censoring I want you to listen to the speech given at the UN by Jacinda Ardern the prime minister in New Zealand And I want you to notice the war analogy She gives it the end of this when talking about how she is so eager to censor information online and listen to how she sent it in such a cutesy nice way How she's the one protecting democracy by engaging in anti democratic communist vile type is a behavior like censorship Check this out This week we launched an initiative alongside companies and nonprofits to help improve research and understanding of how a patient's online experiences are curated by automated processes This will also be important in understanding more about disinformation online A challenge that we must as leaders address Sadly I think it's easy to dismiss this problem as one in the margins I can certainly understand the desire to leave it to someone else As leaders we're rightly consumed that even the most light touch approaches to disinformation could be misinterpreted as being hostile to values of free speech that we value so highly but while I can not tell you today what the answer is to this challenge I can say with complete certainty that we can not ignore it To do so poses an equal threat to the norms we all value After all how do you successfully end a war If people are led to believe the reason for its existence is not only legal but noble How do you tackle climate change if people do not believe it exists Notice the war analogy she uses The language is deliberate It's not by accident folks

AP's global religion team explores sacred rivers around the world, what they mean to those whose faith is tied to the waterways, and the existential challenges ahead.

"In this week's religion roundup a stream of faith runs through the world's sacred rivers The global religion team at The Associated Press explored sacred rivers around the world and the existential challenges they face AP explored 6 rivers that cross the Middle East the Pacific Northwest New Zealand Nepal Nigeria and Chile Among them is the Jordan River familiar to Christians and Jews from biblical stories AP's Jesse guardar ski and adherence along the banks of the Jordan describe the role the river plays today The Jordan River is revered by Christians as the site of the baptism of Jesus Because in my religion they use it many times throughout the years So it's good to actually real well you also from the souls Many modern day visitors immerse themselves in the sacred waters in a show of faith We can just simply imagine John's baptizing the believers here waiting for the arrival of Jesus Christ But the lower Jordan River has suffered from decades of water diversions for agriculture and domestic use Today the river's annual water flow is down to just a tiny fraction of its historic levels The Jordan joins other sacred world rivers and facing severe challenges in the Pacific Northwest the Columbia river winds its way from British Columbia through the states of Washington and Oregon The river and the bounty it provides feature prominently in Native American ceremonies at rituals Patricia whitefoot from the yakama nation says the waters are a reminder that humans weren't the first ones here We're taught that the animals and the fish and the birds the mountains the water They were all here And so what we do is really a gift a gift to all of us Today dams climate change and population growth threatened this way of life On the ocean river in Nigeria illegal gold mining along the river has made its waters increasingly toxic However some like activist Anthony and deja vu are hopeful that the sacred river can return to a safe condition I'm optimistic and I believe that it is possible the government just needs to have that political will to save the iconic river AP journalists depart says the people she encountered on the project were grateful that the religious role of their rivers was no longer being overlooked They were thrilled that someone actually wanted to talk about their religion because that has always been pushed to the back door in the middle of legislation politics fishing rights all those issues have taken the front seat over the years over the decades but when it came to religion hasn't really seen the light of day You can find more about AP's 6 part sacred rivers project at AP news dot com I'm Walter ratliff

New Zealand Only Delayed the Inevitable

"New Zealand was prepared to lock down its entire population literally forever. All they did was postpone the fateful amount of infection and death. It was a complete farce what was done, New Zealanders bought it because you were told to worship. The state and quote unquote science. The confusion of science with scientists is like the confusion, very often, of clergy with religion. There have been a lot of bad clergy people in the history of the world as we well know, some terrific ones I might add. But science and scientists are not the same thing to say the least. It's very scary what's going on.

New Zealand Tried to Hide From Covid. But Covid Found It

"New Zealand COVID deaths soar to record high as omicron wreaks havoc. COVID death rates have reached pandemic highs in New Zealand as the country battles another havoc inducing omicron wave. Once held up as evidence that it is possible to suppress the virus, New Zealand's swift response to the pandemic and its geographic isolation allowed it to escape the wrath of the pandemic. Jacinda Ardern's government dropped its zero COVID policy. Which saw the nation nicknamed a hermit kingdom last year, once the population was largely vaccinated, 8 in ten people now double jabbed. So what does that mean? What percentage of the people are single jab must be even more obviously? 8 and ten double jabbed since then, the virus has spread. Are you ready? Here's one of the great lines in modern journalism. Experts told mail online. That's the daily mail. That previously low levels of infection in New Zealand due to strict COVID curbs. Is behind, actually, should be our behind. Daily mail, writers are not known for their grammatical acuity. Or behind the high fatality rate, because the economically crippling measures only delayed inevitable infections that could have built up immunity.

The Only Difference Between New Zealand and China

"How many times have I played for you? The frightening comments of the dictator of New Zealand, an elected dictator, but that doesn't mean anything. We've elected a dictator in our country. State of emergencies, that's all they have to declare, I think that the state of emergency allowance should be removed, I understand the dangers because they might actually be a real emergency as opposed to the ones that the left make up, nevertheless, I, the abuse of something is greater than the use of something, then you get rid of the something. So my Friends, it is time to get rid of the state of emergency, allowance for governors, and for presidents. The left will abuse any possible use of authority to become a dictatorial regime, and in light of that and in light of New Zealand, what that woman did, locking up her country, China style. It was truly China style. The only difference between China and New Zealand for much of the last two years is that in New Zealand, you had a freely elected dictator whereas in China you had a non freely elected dictator. The difference is minuscule, except that I blame the New Zealand people more than I blame the Chinese people.

New Zealand Prime Minister Gives Harvard Commencement

"Well, the prime minister of New Zealand gave the commencement address. And I'm actually going to compliment her first and then I'll tell you what I didn't like about the speech. You know, she was a very composed articulate speaker. And one of the things I took away was her tone was very nice and conciliatory and thoughtful. And I remember throughout the speech thinking, even though I don't agree with just about anything, she says, I wanted to root for her because of the way that she came across and, you know, as I'm entering this world of the professional media world where I'm going to be espousing conservative beliefs and trying to win people over. I took note of that because I thought I should really try to have a good tone and sound again sound not that it should be disingenuous. But as you know, Dennis, your tone matters so much. And again, even though I disagreed with her, I wanted to root for her, so that was something I took away.

COVID Lockdowns Would Have Been FAR WORSE Without 2nd Amendment

"Than what you saw the last couple of years with COVID of how important it is? That people are able to defend themselves against a potentially tyrannical government. COVID lockdowns would have been far worse if it wasn't for the Second Amendment. We would have been closer to New Zealand or Australia because if only one side has the guns, they get to call all the shots. James Madison, we have a picture of James Madison here. In our studio. The father of the United States Constitution said quote always remember that an armed and trained militia is the firmest bulwark of republics that without standing armies, their liberty can never be in danger. Nor with large ones safe. Now what is a militia? You see militia gets misrepresented by the media saying, oh, that's a trained force and only people in the military. Nope, George Mason, who inspired the Second Amendment said, I ask, sir, what is the militia? Quote, it is the whole people to disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them. The founding fathers were clear that if you disarm a people, you enslave them. The purpose of the Second Amendment is to be able to protect all the other amendments. The purpose of the Second Amendment protects your right to privacy, the Fourth Amendment protects your right to sell against self incrimination, the Fifth Amendment protects your right to due process 6 7th Eighth Amendment. Protects your right, the speech and to assembly. A free people must have leverage against tyrants. One of the reasons why America has a tradition of the many ruling the few, not the few ruling the many. It's because we've been armed. And for some people, they just don't like hearing this. It's an uncomfortable truth while it's what it is.

New Zealand Caller Debates Gun Law, Comparing to U.S.

"Hear you're from New Zealand. Yeah, I really just called because I wanted to point something about out about what their lady was saying about New Zealand and gun control. Sure. So we, in New Zealand, you know, we can get a gun. Down license, we get signed off by the police and then you can have it. But you have to keep it locked away. So there should be a rule in place. You guys have concealed carry here, which is makes it very easy for someone to say, go buy a gun. They decide there's no law to control this. Well, wait a minute. I think you're conflating two issues, but I'm interested in your perspective as somebody from another country like New Zealand. You say you got to keep it locked away. What good does that do you if you want to use your gun for personal protection? If somebody on that subway had had a gun and could have defended themselves, there'd be a whole bunch of people who weren't going to be shot and potentially killed by this guy. You see here in America, there's millions of people who carry for the very precise purpose of defending themselves against bad guys. Yeah. And I don't think correct me if I'm wrong, camera, but I don't think you guys do that in New Zealand, do you? I've been here for like four years and so I've seen a lot. You know, every day you see shootings a little bit of place all over the country. Right. Oh, we're going to fix this. We're going to fix this. I know, but to help me understand New Zealand's perspective, are there a lot of people do they not have concealed carry in New Zealand? No, they don't. And there's a reason I mean, we don't have like a bigger country, like here. We have 5 million people in New Zealand. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I got you. A lot of hunting and stuff, but we only have guns for that sort of type of purpose. It's not really for like carry around critique yourself like you've got to go to conceal carrying corn, but you go to jail.

"Yes, you can kind of tour around this Thornton fear, arrow valley fair, new town. Is a really fun one. And these tend to be on the weekends. I'm guessing? Yes. Okay. So they'll be on a Saturday or Sunday in summer that spread out around the summer. So just depending when you're there. Thornton and new channel, the two biggest Thornton tends to be December and newtown in the new year change bed. Okay. And then Cuba dupa, which is the keyword street, first of all. It's been a bit less of a thing through COVID years, obviously. Right. But they shut down the street for the day. And you get lots of live performers. There's usually a couple of stages that will have local bands performing and all of the restaurants and cafes along Cuba street will sit up in a stall in front of the spot and make street food for the day. And it did get canceled in 2022, but they're planning to have it in the end of March in 2023. So we shall see. Yeah. So yeah, that's a lot of fun. Excellent. Anything else we need to cover in terms of neighborhoods, things to do side trips. So I've covered off our valley, Cuba street area, cube street has night markets every weekend as well, which can be quite good. It's mostly food tracks. There's also so they're kind of waterfront area has to papa. It has a theater oriental bay in all of that. I think through the food is a huge part of Wellington that's worth maybe talking about a little bit more because it's really kind of a culinary capital of New Zealand. So there's Wellington on our plate, which is the big foodie event of the year. But there's also some really top restaurants in the city. So the two I would mention there is here Kai. So that is by manik physio, who was on she was on Gordon Ramsay's show recently, actually. Okay. As a top New Zealand chef who does a lot of Maori and Polynesian cooking styles in her restaurant. So she's got a restaurant in the mount cook suburb of Wellington, which is very difficult to get into, but amazing if you can. Okay. So if you're planning a trip away in advance, that's worth looking into. Lots of native ingredients. Things like that, lots of seafood. Just really interesting, amazing food. And then Rita in our valley, which is just in this little house in the suburb tucked away, you wouldn't know it was there. But does incredible food is more European influences there..

"And it's about kind of 20 to 30 minutes to the summit from oriental bay and you get beautiful views all across the bay. Got it. And this is the mountain that was named after Queen Vick. Yes. So it's a Victoria. I'm not Victoria. Yep. And it's part of a bigger skyline walkway that connects the whole city. So you can walk from that Victoria all the way to the south coast or up into the hills by the eastern suburbs. Okay. So doing a bigger chunk of that walk as the great option if you've got a few days there and want to go for a longer hike. Got it. And so in oriental bay, you've got to have fish and chips on the beach. If you're there at dinnertime. Okay. So my favorite place to go is the chipotle on Marjorie bank street. And you get your fish and chips and new newspaper or your paper box and take it down and eat it by the beach or there's also some really cute sheds in oriental bay that you can climb on top of great place to get a photo. Very bright primary colors. Painted up there with the little boats in the background. Okay. Yeah, that's kind of the closest beach area to the city. But from there, you're really close also to papa, which is the national museum in absolutely worse spending half a day, or even a full day at. Yes. Yeah, all of the other museums and Wellington are taken skip those go to papa, take your time there. The scale of our war exhibit that was designed by Peter Jackson and where to workshop the team behind her and Lord of the Rings and things is incredible. You've got these mess of scale models. And it's about Gallipoli, which is the main battle World War I that New Zealand soldiers were involved in. So for those who are not familiar, Gallipoli being a Peninsula in turkey and a place where the amateur traveler turkey trip will be going in September, so if you happen to have some friends from one of the anzac countries, they might appreciate that. Very significant Australians in New Zealanders. Right, exactly. And that's in KPop. Yes, so the exhibit isn't a papa. Is that new then a new exhibit? No, so it's been there for about two years now and I believe it's continuing through to 2025. Got it. Hope that would count as news. It's been there since I was in te papa. Got it. Well, and I recall that that was a good museum for an introduction into the local Maori culture as well. Absolutely. So there's a lot there on the history of New Zealand and right from when the Maldives arrived to New Zealand through their history and then when the European settlers arrived, the Maori land was New Zealand land wars and the history since then including the treaty of waitangi between the Maori and the Europeans in New Zealand. So great way to get introduced to that. You can see things like a moldy walker, which is the canoes that they arrived in New Zealand in hundreds of years ago..

"And great cafes and things in the area as well. There's garage project, which is a craft beer brewery that literally did start an alternative station. It is still there now. You can go and do tasting flights and things like that. Can you get an oil change at the same time? Okay. And when you say we should stay there, are you recommending any particular hotel, Airbnb, hostile? So if you're going for a hotel, best to stay in the central city around lampton key area. Okay. There's a newly opened one double tree by Hilton and while it sounds Hilton chain, it's in a beautiful old heritage building and they give you free cookies on arrival. Well, the free cookies are always a double tree, but there are properties are not all equally interesting. So yeah. There are a lot of Airbnb spread around the city as well, which is a good cheaper option because there aren't many hostels. So looking the areas like arivale is really good, more oriental bay if you're looking for a nicer Airbnb with some waterfront views. Excellent. What else are we going to do while we're there? In our valley, the walks around there, there's some great shops on arrow street, and the craft beer tasting Rita is one of the best restaurants in Wellington to get into. That is a bit of a pain to get a booking because it's often very full that they do incredible food. It's very kind of modern New Zealand cuisine with lots of local produce, European influences. And I don't know that I know modern New Zealand cuisine. Fair point. So it is very influenced by the British cuisine. Well, we would hold that against it, but. And you don't want to call it a bringing in some more of their Asian fusion influencers because of the kind of world that we're in. And local produce, so New Zealand. So it does great wine, but there's lots of fruit orchards around the hawks Bay Area and capital coast, yet produce from lots of seafood, especially as well, and that links to the traditional Maori cuisine with Kai Moana, seafood. Okay. Got it. Excellent. Anything else in the arrow valley that we should talk about? You say there are lots of cute little shops you got a favor. The shopping person late, I would actually go old bank arcade on lampton key rather than to our valley. Okay. But our valley has more of the kind of you find antiques. You'll find the video store, lots of thrift shops, things like that. Got it. Then I think the second time that you have taken us down to the area around old bank, the neighborhood there, should we go there next or where we go next? So lampton key and Wall Street are kind of called the golden mile and Wellington because that's where a lot of the cities businesses, the CBD, but there's also a lot of food and shops around there. So you'll find a mix of lamp drinking illustrate have a lot of chain stores. But if you go into old bank arcade, which is literally the old bank heritage building, which has got all the beautiful mosaic tiling on the floor or wooden balustrades, that sort of thing. You'll find some more local boutiques. My favorite is ruby near foreman's clothing. There's a whole range from home warriors, things like that. And a little cafe Smith the grocer as well, which does great brownies. Good to know..

Author Eric Cassell's Book 'Animal Algorithms' Is Full of Extraordinary Information

"Brand folks. I'm talking to Eric castle, CA SS ELL. He's the author of animal algorithms. Full of extraordinary information. Eric, I was just reading here that one species of migratory shorebird breeds in the Arctic regions, it's called the bar tailed God wit. I love these the names of these birds. But you say you write that they're four subspecies that migrate to different regions with the most interesting being the Alaskan godwit, which migrates between either New Zealand or Australia in the southern hemisphere to western Alaska in the northern hemisphere. And this is what kills me. You write the migratory route consists of a series of non stop flights. One bar tailed godwit that was tagged with a satellite tracking device was recorded flying nonstop for 6000 350 miles from New Zealand to China. Then after feeding for 5 weeks, it flew another 4013 miles to the Alaska Peninsula even more impressive impressively the same bird flew the return route to New Zealand covering 7189 miles non stop in 8 days that's an average speed of about 35 mph for close to 200 hours. I mean, the book is full of stuff like this, and it just can not help fill you with awe and wonder at some of these creatures whose names we've never heard before. Yeah. Some of those behaviors of particularly these long distance migrating birds is, like you say, it's pretty amazing. But it's amazing for a number of different reasons. One is the navigation ability that we've already talked about. But the other is the physical capabilities of these birds to fly thousands of miles nonstop. And what happens is that the birds going through a process, prior to migrating, there's a lot of physiological changes that take place and one of which is obviously they must eat a lot of food to store up enough calories for the journey. It's called curveball loading. It's called carbo

"Zealand is seeming to be firmly entrenched in mitigation and separation efforts rather than in vaccination. Baxter has that story and the rest of the global news from the Bloomberg 9 60 San Francisco newsroom. Yeah, you look at it. Yeah, Brian, I know you learn your numbers guy. If you look at the numbers here, it's it's pretty easy to make that assumption. New Zealand's prime minister sent to Ardern defends her elimination strategy as further extends that strict nationwide lockdown now until August 28 Bloomberg's Paul Island says it maybe is the only thing in the toolbox. Now at the moment elimination really the only option because the vaccination rate in New Zealand is Very, very low. It was even worse than Australia was at a few weeks ago, 20% fully vaccinated. That's the lowest in the G. D. That also lags the global average. Yeah, the government is trying to ramp up the vaccination campaign. Now this flies in the face of what Singapore is doing, urging all employers to consider implementing what it calls the differentiated vaccine rules. Advisory says the vaccine or test, but the employee would have to pay for the tests themselves. It did add that the companies have the right to terminate employees who do not comply. China reporting out 35 new coronavirus cases August 23rd and the U. S. Where the FDA is fully approved. The Pfizer Biontech vaccine and President Joe Biden is asking business to mandate vaccinations. While we're starting to see initial signs that Cases may be declining in a few places nationwide cases are still rising. Especially among the unvaccinated. So he says, the key is vaccination. The approval should provide more assurance and protection of businesses who mandate them. New York City quick to jump on the vaccination train Chancellory supporter says mandatory for school teachers and staff Our schools must be safe spaces for all Children and by mandating at first owes by September, 27. The first month of school. We are adding yet another layer of protection for our kids. So that's the last week in September U. S military also on board. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby says it will be mandatory vaccination to serve a timeline. For vaccination completion will be provided in the coming days. Yeah, The Pentagon is just been waiting, uh, with boots on ground for the full approval to do it, and they are and the evacuation efforts in Afghanistan, according to the NSA is moving at a record pace. Now Director Jake Sullivan says being helped out by we have established a network of transit centers in multiple countries in the Gulf in Europe. Where we are getting us citizens on flights home and we are running biometric and biographic background checks on Afghan evacuees before bringing them to the United States and Sullivan in the last 24 hours, says 28. U. S Military flights evacuating 10,400 people from Kabul. So, looking at the clock doing a little double math. Here, it looks like New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has just a little over two hours and 20 minutes left in office last day on the job and delivering his parting address remained Defiant today, when government politicizes allegations and the headlines condemn without facts, you undermine the justice system and that doesn't serve women and it doesn't serve men or society. Cuomo's replacement, Catherine Huckle, says she will take over. Well, it doesn't say she will take over at midnight. All right, Brian, sir. All right. Thanks very much, said 38 minutes past the hour. It is time for world sport..

'cause it's this place that when you first got there you will say. Why on earth did this woman recommend. Funder i don't know why i'm here. It looks like an industrial little town. Why am i here. And where the toilets. But there's a toilet but in fact there are a few major things to see there. One is there's a tone basin which is where like there's all these boats docked there that are gorgeous. There's little clock museum which i mean. If you like clocks go if not just looking from the outside window you could see enough. But there's a sculpture trail and quite large. And that's where. I mentioned chris booth. He did a walk and wave sculpture there in partnership with another artist if you walk around as the whole basin and waterfront cross a bridge go to the other side can take you a good hour or more. And there's tons of amazing sculptures and then the other thing that's there is there are hikes that are gorgeous. The sculpture park. It's called the who tail loop sculpture park. So it's an actual loop that you take to see that. And then i did the mount par haka walk. It was a bit long in. It's uphill both ways. That's the thing here. I gotta tell you. I feel like in new zealand like it's always hill. Even when it should be downhill. I feel like i'm always walking up and it's insane but that must be why people here are in such great shape. 'cause they're just doing a lot of walking at the top of mount power haka. Is this beautiful view of fugger. A and there's a sculpture of immoral. It's a maori woman. That's a beautiful sculpture up there and there is a cross like if you got the sunlight correctly and i put this on my blog post to another blog post about gray. The sun shines through this cross and it glows red. And it's absolutely beautiful so that's a beautiful walk and that will take you..

"They are so new that there are. I've met new zealanders. That have no idea what i'm talking about and have never tasted one or her to one and they are as i understand it working to be able to freeze them somehow. Also that they're available all year round but for now just two months of the year and they are delicious. So highly recommend that in kerry kerry itself. There are five waterfalls all of which are so. There's two of them that you can easily do in one day. So i mentioned we. We talked about that f. Sound there's far pook eighth falls and rainbow falls. And if you go down to the carry inlets which by the way has a wishing well which also is to me any town with a wishing well right is just you gotta go and so right by that inlet. There's the stone store which has a museum up top highly recommend seeing and you can also from their visit. The campus the campus is the oldest building in new zealand. Serves a lot of rich history. Right here in kerikeri. There's a restaurant called the plough and feather which is now kind of pub style and it sits right on the water so you can have a beautiful view and also eat mostly pub food and sometimes they have like other food as well. I also recommend if you like drinking have a phychi sour fit. Joe is one of the fruit that grow up here. And i think it's originally from brazil and i had never tried. I didn't know they made look her out of it. So if you're familiar with fiscus our firm like chile or something. This is that that but with joe which is sweeter and they have them at the plough in feather just had one the other day. They're really good. And then as you walk towards where you'd pick up the trail for the fire pook falls. There's also the honey house. which is i believe. In the olden times they actually stored honey there. But now it's a cafe which is also lovely there's ducks and kuku and beautiful birds right out front. That i think are used to being fed by people. And then there's this bridge that crosses over the water that's the inlet and if you're lucky to be here during rainy season so right now it's winter and it's raining a lot up here. I've never seen in my life so many rainbows which is another reason to come to new zealand. The rainbows here are stunning and last year. Some friends and i came out after a storm and we saw a rainbow. And i've never in my life. We we saw four rainbows. It was three separate vans right. Three separate bows with space in between them and one of the rainbows did the color spectrum like back to back purple on one side yellow. Whatever the colors in the middle and then it was like a double band of yellow and it went all the way out through the spectrum to the right but it was like to band together. And if you're over that bridge and you can see that. I have a picture of a rainbow while i'm standing at that bridge..

The administration is preparing for a possibly turbulent summer. Violent crime overall is lower than five years ago. But after plunging early in the pandemic, crime rates are rising. The White House says the president will lay out a plan to fight back, including more money for cities that need more police and a crackdown on gun dealers. Who Break federal laws. He's already announced several executive actions on gun control.

"Won't to wet collaborative late. There's lots of activity like The nasa sophia infrared aircraft comes to new zealand to observe the southern sky in on the aviation side. There's been a lot of support for Experimental testing there's been balloon testing and large scale the testing and things like that. in fact. there's there's even a recent agreement in in the area near christ church for a a new current space testing area out near earnings flat and so there's a support across the board in the areas that make this a friendly place. in fact we have talked to several people in moving companies here from europe that they just couldn't find a place in europe for their flight tests and they wanted to come to new zealand just develop their airspace. systems is there. danger guys could become too crowded. There's potential there. The i mean certainly We're talking just in the aviation and High altitude areas Right now it's not much traffic for the it's much less than other parts of the world but and then of course satellite orbits a global. And so there's the other concern about the increasing number of satellites that are in the sky that have both plus minus aspects of that with the stratosphere getting more crowded and the danger of space debris increasing. We need to know where it all is. So it's incredible this point tracking facilities being set up Nina esp and that's really contributing to how well we know the positions of all of the things around the earth and if you're launching satellites You really need to know the information because the last thing you want to happen is a collision which would be a disaster. I small piece of debris just a couple of centimeters in size has the energy of appiano moving at sixty miles per hour. We are often called. Google maps of space. We're building the base layer map of the low-earth orbit environment. It's a dynamic map. It's changing it. Shows where the satellites are where the debris is where the new satellites are going. And we're satellites are being taken out of orbit. The company labs in based in california has four radar tennis around the world and one of them on this on the south island here is eland and they have a unique partnership with the government in new zealand. provide tracking for anything launched from new zealand is part of the new zealand's obligations to minimize space debris under us agreements. And i'm really impressed by what new zealand has been able to do in this area by partnering with a commercial satellite tracking provider there. Actually i i hear about my friends that are connected with the us tracking system in the the us military and and they're stuck using computers from the nineties and struggling to keep up with new satellites whereas leo labs is providing really modern tracking to the new zealand government. And so i think a couple of new zealanders laptops has about the same capabilities the us space force in this area. Many many years ago. I used to work on the hubble telescope program nassar and you know you travel around america and goes all these amazing places and see incredible engineering and i to say what i moved down to. The you know few years ago if you told me. I'd be seeing similar activity here and using and that's gonna happen but he has an and the pace of is quite impressive And these are serious companies. They don't like small up. Some of them are doing quite big business and i are actually really contributing to the local economy in the regions of new zealand. Then again that's another aspect of this all of the developments. The senate in auckland or wellington they are out in the regions and there are opportunities out in the region for people to set up these new businesses. And of course the other thing we go through member is the opportunities to launch spacecraft here There's not much to south of us. So if you launch threat south you pass over any populated countries until you get on the other side of antarctica. So that means if your rockets do crash. They don't do any damage so again. Museums are pretty good. Place to be able to launch rockets into space attracting people from i think it is. Yes and i think given the amazing performance of this country during kofi Living in new zealand become a lot more attractive than the last year or so And i think if you couple that with economy that is Willing to kind of adapt the relative ease of access to government and the people who make decisions it does make this country a very interesting place for folks to come and work and you can see that. There's a lot of investors trying to move down to new zealand at the moment. And and of course a lotta talented engineers and would love to work down here in this part of the world. I think the thing we go to think about here though. Is you know the future museums. Economy exporting milk to china. You'll probably making you know certain amount per kilogram but if we stop exporting ideas to the wool. The the property that we're doing is really valuable so you know instead of paying whatever is maybe sixty seventy one hundred bucks for kilo of of milk to go somewhere. We might send kilo of high tech stuff. That's worth tens of thousands of dollars and there's real opportunities. I think here in the new economy and of course able services economy. We need to education system that generates lots of people have the talent that we need in this new era and not just scientists and engineers. You know there's also ways that folks office can contribute towards this as well designers and that kind of thing so I do think all of this activity does mean that it's up to us now to join education system. He can produce people who can serve this new economy. That's all for today. I'm alexia russell. Thanks to ian griffin erik. dalstrom and maria.

"you zealand" Discussed on RNZ: The Detail

"Billion dollar missions. This is astronomer and space engineer. Eric dalstrom who came to new zealand four years ago on a henry fellowship. As part of his quest to help countries get more involved in space projects. He's an international space consultant. When we talk to our friends around the world everybody in the space community knows about new zealand. It's held up as a as a role model for how to get a lot of activity going so that It's been a big transformation from when we first visited for years ago when we told the government that we wanted to help space entrepreneurs in new zealand and they said are there three of them. How many are there and my wife made a big effort to collect to new zealand. Space directory that's our website space-based dot co and There's about two hundred and forty organizations and companies can there now. Two hundred forty organizations in new zealand have business to do with space. Yes yes now. Now we take a broad view we also include some of the Astronomy tourism groups and things like that just to be complete but they. But there's a lot more activity going on than people realize and that's one of the biggest shocks to us coming from california. Is that new zealanders will do amazing things. And they don't want won't talk about themselves. The in california you'll he'll someone will hype themselves in the first ten minutes but in new zealand taking a lot of effort to to find out all the amazing things people are doing. What are the kafer. Does driving us operations. Why up people sitting up here well. On the rocket launch side the geographic isolation is actually a real advantage because when you're launching rockets or anywhere in the world at this point you what you want is to not interfere with air traffic and shift traffic and You don't realize how much trouble there is launching from florida with all the aircraft flying into miami. They have to be shut down for hours for every launch and so here without much. Traffic to the eastern south rabat's lots of opportunities to launch. But the other side is what. I call the power of small It's the new zealand. Space agency is something around something less than forty people and you can get the decision makers in one room and get decisions made very quickly so that is is such a contrast to the big space faring countries around the world where the bureaucratic inertia is so large. The new zealand government has been very good about being very responsive to to new ideas and approving things while maintaining a new zealand perspective on what should be allowed could there be a downside to that i mean you know what are the chances of a bad actor Coming in getting easy. Xi's to what it wants to do. They're very good checks. You know throughout the system so It's possible you can imagine but it's In new zealand works very closely with the us government because rocket lab having shifted their headquarters to the us is involving both the us government. Dan the new zealand government and approvals of their launches but And you know it's conceivable that there could be bad actors trying to extract the technology but it but They're actually seems to be pretty good safeguards in place and also the the fact that in new zealand the community is very small and people know each other. It's not like anonymous. People showing up trying to learn secrets is going to be is going to get very far documents. Obtained by news hub showed twenty applications for space or high altitude activities have been made to the new zealand. Space agency since twenty seventeen. None have been declined. New zealand has one space lawyer. Maria poser is an expert in regulation and risk management in the industry. It's just surprising when you start thinking about it. How many entities we have amy's eland that are under touching either direct or indirect wuck supply for compartment tree or something like that she renews zealand. It's really quite mind. Blowing pose doesn't see anything sinister and the cutting of rid type for these high tech companies to get permission to operate here saying the application process is rigorous. They have a look at the application as a whole they want to know what's going on. Why is it happening foods activities. All you're going to be undertaking. Which technology are you going to be doing. So there's a lot of due-diligence that's under tightening. But she sees. We do operate differently to most countries with space. Capability does not have a huge history in spice development much like all other five nations for example. The us for example. There's going to really rich military history of development and of course with nasa to development of space technology vice exploration reset and design. There's a lot that they have that they could draw upon in the formation of their own legislation and legislation hikes on that context of that history but for new zealand we I think it's absolutely a hundred percent driven by commercial activity so we've come to this from a position of commercialisation and commercial context. So when you look at then you can have a look at the new zealand. Space agency website. We actively want to engage with and to taste to undertake space activities from new zealand so there is still a framework in place. Under the spice act that operates here in new zealand. Went by entities. Have to apply for permits licenses depending on their activities so there's still a framework in place it needs to be adhered takes about because of the way new zealand tree spice activities from that commercial perspective. It does have a different dogs from other nations. Does that make sense yet. But what kind of different stunts. So i mean it's not coming from a the government controls and decides everything. It's coming from a k. Your business tell us about. It will be set up kind of thing. That's comeback money for the country. You hit the nail on the head. we quite collaborative. We.

"It's probably not something that many of us have thought about. Oh really want to think about but what happens to have frequent flyer points after we die assets like money in physical property. Can of course be bequeathed but it doesn't quite work like that with frequent flyer points. That's because as the terms and conditions of pretty much every low t. program made clear points are the property of the airline not the account holder and have no monetary value of course points can be redeemed for things of value.

"This weekend New Zealand's Labour Party swept to a fairy-tale victory stunned. . Prime Minister. . Justin. . The are dern beamed as a rapturous crowd applauded beginning her speech with a thankful molly reading. . In. . In <hes> tongue it Athena what? ? dern promised a big tent kind of administration. . For every New Zealand has never been so important more than it has been now. . We living in an increasingly polarized world a place where more and more people have lost the ability to see one. . Another's point of view having come in for criticism during the campaign on failing to address housing shortages and poverty. . She acknowledged there were difficulties ahead. . Over the next three years. . There is much to do. . We will build back better from the covert crisis. . Stronger. . With an answer to the mini challenges New Zealand. . Already faced. . Challenges or no the scale of the win came as a surprise even to her supporters. . The easiest way of describing is that it was unparalleled in modern history. . I wonder why it had Austrailia and correspondent say the Labor Party which has just endured dance policy one, , forty, , nine percent of the and that was compared to nearly twenty seven percent for the main opposition, , which is called the national policy, , which is conservative that is the best result Labor's result for any policy since the fifties and it gives it a majority of seats in parliament, , and that is the first time that any he's been. . Able to govern on its own underneath. . Zealand. . System of proportional representation which has been in place since one, , thousand, , nine, , hundred, , sixty, , they were winning in both provincial rural conservative strongholds, , ondon rich city areas, , and to give sense New Zealanders vote for both the preferred party and an MP on their ballots and labor top the preferred party votes in sixty eight of its seventy constituencies really astounding result for them and what was the the campaign like De Campaign was focused on pretty much only one subject which was the government's response to the coronavirus. . It was really a referendum on how the government and I think in voters is particularly prime minister has responded to the virus that response was to shut down the borders, , I to China, and , then to the rest of the world and then to rally support. . For, , what was a very, , very strict lockdown in New Zealand at the beginning of the pandemic and say, , Bara brief surges pretty much. . Succeeded I. . Need Twenty Five people have died and that was really what the campaign focus on the fact that life has been able to return and roughly to normal people are eating out people cramming into restaurants and their normal numbers. . Forty six thousand people watching rugby match against Australia, , this weekend. . So the campaign was very much focused on that response and the opposition kind of found it quite difficult. . See Find Ground on which to oppose the government, , and so the scale of that result then is just a reflection of how satisfied everyone has been with the response to the pandemic. . That is the singular issue of its left remembering that before the pandemic hits. . Labor a was looking the polls. . The suggesting that Labor was on track to lose. . This election would have been a one term government, which , is not very common in New Zealand central a being. . Overseas particularly, , for the way that she responded to the Christ church terrorist attacks, , they were much last year when these two mosques were attacked by a white supremacist and she was obviously hailed. . The way she united New Zealand does after that and staunchly defended immigrants but adulation wasn't really reflected back at home until the pandemic has. . So was this a vote for her or a vote for the Party and it's I think it's got to be with her and not a great deal to do with the Party and its policies. . So it was a campaign that was thin on policy on both sides update from national and Labour but I think it was a set of referendum on the prime minister's response. . To the coronavirus even historisches appointment submit that she's a very gifted communicator particularly in times of crisis and young people particularly look to her. . She has a kind of unpretentious approachability that I think that a lot of Kiwis light and political analysts in New Zealand will say that it's very much a politics of personality though she wasn't always popular home as she was overseas. . I, , think that Kiwis do derive a kind of sense of pride from hug label standing as well. . So in a way that has served her well at home. . Speaking to damage he said that her brilliant lies in the way she plays into their sense of exceptionalism. . In key, , we always liked to think that set apart by more than their geography and they punch above that waits. . But what about apart from the personality and crisis management and so on. . What about sort of kitchen table politics? ? This is. . Just. . On the Labor government comes in for a lot of criticism because when she came to power in two thousand seventeen. . Labor was making a lot of very lofty promises to do things like reduce child poverty it was going to end homelessness in New Zealand. . It was going to build one hundred thousand affordable houses in ten years. . Of generally make New Zealand to Faira Besser country and it's pretty much failed to deliver on every single one of those things. . The Prime Minister's critics point out that almost counts of poverty and social inequality museum and actually heading quits. . Houses are increasing at the moment in New Zealand increasing through the crisis. . So this is a big big criticism of her detractors that she is a great at moving motivational speeches, , but quite a poor Administra- certain hasn't actually got much done. . So that might explain why this time around the world kind of such lofty promises it was rather more timid. . But. . She's still got a strong base of support is on the left who are GonNa be expecting her to do a lot more particularly now she's not in. . She's she's not having to form a coalition particularly now that she can govern on her own and so to your mind the the big difference then between the first term and this coming second term is that she that Labour will be governing alone. . Is the big difference with governing Elaine comes a lot more responsibility. . There is still a chance that Labor form some kind of coalition with the Greens will they. . They don't need. . Them might be handy have degrees inside the government say they're not handling the sidelines said that could either be a formal coalition or a more informal arrangement in which the Greens folks with Labor early onset issues. . So a much stronger position on a lot more pressure within this time around. . But what about fulfilling all those promises in light of the economic situation? ? I mean new. . Zealand certainly must have suffered economically from the pandemic if not quite so much as elsewhere in terms of the human cost, , it is in a recession. . Now the economy is going to contract by about six percent. . This year unemployment is rising the wage subsidy that is coming off. So . Wild New Zealand has done very well at keeping the virus out there going to be lots more questions about what that has caused it, , and how it is going to drive a recovery how it's going to get out of that mess. . The Prime Minister says that there is a plan for recovery which includes things like building lots of roads but to her pregnancy looks quite incremental. . They out there in no big plans for tax reform for example of just third some income tax hikes. . But only on the talk to percent of workers say theoretically might think that with such strong majority, , they pressure more radical agenda but there are many people in New Zealand see that. . So to be so popular, , you've got to be fairly uncontroversial owner. . Thank you very much for joining us. . Thanks, , Jason. .
