I don't know why which is not like me always asked the question. Why conrad black in the spectator has a fairly direct statement about. Monday's election canada. Another stupid redundant dismal canadian election. I like when a guy tells you what he thinks. In the title in the six years of his government trudeau has distracted the country with a ludicrously alarmist view of climate change and preposterously self-important notion of how much difference canada with its miniscule carbon footprint and generally high ecological standards can make to. This end is persecuted. Candidates greatest industry oil and gas unmercifully and driven. Large sections of western. Canada contemplate possible deliverance of separation. Canada is divided as the united states. And i understand why people would want to separate from one another. It's why i agree. I re- wouldn't left to say it. I agree you have nothing in common with me. And i have nothing in common with view so i don't want the united states to dissolve.

White House Announces New Security Pact With Australia and UK
"Let's just talk briefly about this new partnership between the us australia and the uk. Casey it was announced yesterday. Just explain what it's intending to achieve. Guess there's it's an e packed in in theory and is a security pact. We have a situation where australia will be making new submarines with health in the us. Osa the caper in the us technology in us intelligence. And it has created a diplomatic steph or a number of reasons one. Because obviously you have the five is and this appears to be a breakway from the fives. Some of the countries have in it meeting on coming up with the rain plan. And i think that is seeing even though it's not specifically as a response to china and this is a group trying to tackle they think will be chinese aggression in this area. I think that you use saying the allies or the allies of the uk. Australia and the us. I'm unhappy because you have a situation. Where france had been quite a public their annoyance over this land because a french company had previously had a contract to let australia on submarines and that has now gone in favor of lectern with the us. And that i think are new zealand. A member of the five. Is you have a proper. Because just into autumn relating to rules they had previously in place is saying that these submarines won't say. Hey kennel enter. Newseum waters and i think that is just suggesting a tilt. In towns case foreign policy in the areas it's focusing on usa allies most values
U.S., Australia and UK Unveil New Security Partnership
"The biden administration's efforts to counter chinese dominance in asia and support allies in the region is gathering steam. This week the us uk and australia agreed a landmark security pact in the indo pacific. The move will see australia. Build nuclear powered submarines for the first time the pack will also cover artificial intelligence cyber and quantum technologies. So what does all this mean for australia. Monaco's contributor in canberra ardebili. Gary sent us. This report the news that ustralia is going to be getting nuclear-powered submarines came out of the blue five years ago. We signed an agreement with the french to provide us with diesel-powered submarines. It has since become clear that these technology would not be adequate to meet security challenges. Plus they wouldn't be delivered for almost twenty years at the same time. Need security partnership between australia. The us and uk was announced called aucas. All of this is pretty big knees. Even if you're not someone to spend a lot of time thinking about submarines the full details haven't yet been announced but it is clear that it's all about sending a strong message to china. Tensions between australia and china has been increasing over the past few years so this deal is all about australia. Proving to beijing that it has big and powerful allies that it can rely on but it will get australia. Offside with other friends new zealand and pacific countries are avowedly anti nuclear. Oh new zealand has already said it won't allow the subs in its waters. Australia is a signatory to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. So we can expect that e inspectors will be doorsteps wanting access and china has put out a statement. Saying it's irresponsible big questions now. Are this tacitly. Say that his strategy is undoubtedly in a cold war situation with china. And just how much safer will australia. Now be

Facial Recognition Tech: Open Your Eyes to Radiation
"So infrared radiation. Which is the thing that we're using the tool that they're using for this facial. Recognition is thermal radiation is more electro magnetic radiation spectrum and a certain wavelength above red visible light between seven hundred nanometers and one millimeter. That's the wavelength and then there was a study done on and this is brutal. I'm sorry that this happened to the rabbits. However i am anna site. This study in service of the rabbits that unfortunately were brutally killed in this process. A hate that studies are still doing this. But this is something that was done study was done in new zealand to look at potentially harmful effects of this infrared radiation. This i are standing. For infrared radiation on the either rabbits were exposed to varying amounts of the i. r. then were unfortunately. This is where it's brutal. I'm just telling you they're heads. Were cut off. So then they were able to look at the lenses and the retinas and all of that stuff immediately after that and they concluded that the protein of the islands is very very sensitive to this infrared radiation. And that's the difference. Infrared radiation really doesn't do much in this form to the scan into the body but when it's directed at the i that's where things can go sideways and actually can contribute to cataracts. The exposure of the rabbits was up to ten minutes and keep in mind that that is not the exposures usually ten seconds for the phone. But what we don't know yet is how little and how much will create the damage. But if you're opening your phone multiple times a day than that adds up and then over time over length of you using your phone and weeks months and years and decades. Now you're starting to get the hint. That infrared radiation going into your eyeball is not a great idea. According to the international commission on non ionizing radiation protection is c. n. i. r. p. They made a statement of the i. r. energy from ira an i. r. b. poses a risk to the human eye the penetration depth of these. I are bands varies from one point. Two and three micrometres therefore the corner the lens and the retina can be damaged due to the thermal effects associated with the i. r. exposure

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.

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.

"Traveling for programming right through the end of last year up until January there was no way we could. Possibly with all the things that are unknown about covered as as the as it started to lockdown that we could anticipate anything like where we are right now. So we had to make a decision which way we would go. It was either cancelled the festival for twenty twenty or go online. And now we're fully sit up to go online, and you know we. We will be looking at exploring the possibility of limited screenings and sentiment obesity, but the scale of the film festival is so great that we can't possibly in four and a half five weeks. Flip everything and suddenly go back cinemas. It's just it's just a great machine of Organization of accessing rights. That's another thing like the films that we know have normally sure on cinemas. We access theatrical screening rights so now we only hold this moment. Online screening rights festival screening rights. Booking films inviting them, having been confirmed is incredibly complex process. Actually it's not just like we walk into the civic and throw the switch, and there's a movie style, but how difficult was at to make that decision between closing or going online? It was heartbreaking. There was so many factors one was. Do. We leave a great gap of the festival in this country. It's the largest cultural of inter. Museum. The numbers of people that anticipated in the middle of the winter to bring light, which is something. We're very aware of light story ideas issues. That was the first question. Do we simply cancel? was there an alternative? We looked around just at the time. We were making this decision. The very first successful online festival happen. That would see dox Copenhagen Documentary Festival. And they managed to. Turn around on a dime took them about five days to go from an incinerators festival to fully lockdown on nine pistol. And the they did that successfully, so we had a model could be done, and we had more lead time like that. We were doing budget projections in terms of possible audiences and the numbers, which were just horrific, even medium case scenario with some cinemas Oakland with social distancing. There would be a seventy five percent four often audience, because how many people a get we? We had two hundred sixty thousand sold tickets. That's an extraordinary number. We also knew they'll beautiful films out there that we had already chosen and we'd already invited that we wanted people to see there layers and layers of decision making now. It'd ever done this before so us. It was a little. It was like both terrifying and thrilling. But what does an tone switching a film festival with how many films? do you normally show? We normally show around one hundred, sixty hundred and eighty films right. So, what does it take to take it from that to an online offering? Well? If you'd asked me that a few months ago, to said God only knows let's make. Let's figure it out, and that's actually what we will be together. One. The in in terms of the numbers of films we, we shortened the time frame. It will be a ten day festival rather than the usual two weeks will be presenting something between sixty five and eighty films, including our shorts collections. One thing we did have to do was films that we'd already invited. We had to go back and renegotiate rights. We had to present all of those distributors. Rightsholders assurances that we had an entirely secure platform that would prevent piracy. We had to look premium status because films that. Now Theatrical version of the festival then may go onto with at a theatrical life later on and shown cinemas across the country. Soc Going Online, we actually had to draw an expertise, which I drew down from Europe of creating an entirely new category of rights, which is non theatrical festival streaming rights. We were helping define actually something that was is so fluid that everyone who is trying to have an all my fiscal. We trying to figure this out at the same time, so this sort of technicalities, but they were, they played a really big role in they occupied us. Did any of the filmmakers or distributors say no, yes, of course. Yeah and that was expected. We we knew that some filmmakers would be unable to or. To present a film I first time online. Sometimes it's about premia. Sometimes, it's about the New Zealand premium that I fully understand other distributors that we usually work with who are controlled by American studios. For example they were as as as colleagues individuals. They were warm and and supportive of what we were trying to do, but they had your blanket policies handed down from Los Angeles saying no online festival. So you know that's to be expected as well like I. I knew from the start that there would be people who wouldn't be able to offer assist films in the same way. But this? This is a real experiment I wasn't I mean you don't know if it's going to succeed. I, know it's going to succeed. Of course, it's an experiment. No one's ever done it before.

"To. You've got Milan of course Nikki Caros New Zealand Shot Disney film, which will be another big screen APEC, which is still down for the twenty third. Of July an every day you wake up and you something else change and be different, but the reality is. This is new. Zealand we might be ready to open. the state's wine. Open a big blockbuster if they cinemas on so not only if they had to deal with covert, but now you've got mass protests. The last thing anyone is going to do is a open a cinema. Regain obey. People aren't really interested in going to the Cinema Z eight. I think the stat that I heard was at least eighty five percent of domestic cinemas in the states must be opened before wonder brothers will consider releasing tenant. So, what does that leave the state of the New Zealand Cinema Industry? Struggling events obviously. Publicly having to make quite a few people redundant, the company and and strategic The income has been flipped zero. I mean they've had to close the doors They want to get open as soon as possible. Points will be the same as Aaron combined. Strident Company the signs of autism and am I think they've had a couple of little cinemas Australia open, so it's says already saying they were ready to go as well so that what vein China is going to do as it's, they've got licensed for a couple of really great big screen old school films. They've got diehard They've got alien and aliens. They've got the Matrix and they've. They've got the Gulf Gremlin. So that'll probably open the doors and Shiduan a few of those table back in which for someone like me I'm pretty doggone much aliens on the big screen any day, but it's not the same rates as opening a fast and furious or black widow. It's just it's just not we at the behest of America that's at the end of the day. It's not like they're gonNA say Milan can show in New Zealand. Because of course they want to show in China Nikki Curry's been very specific about this at the story having come from China to be a film that they will embrace and cinema sort of. Cars, but the New Zealand there as a potential big upside. But how big is that I mean we head the Avatar crew? Arrive and we've made a big deal of that. American producer Jon Landau has made the cut. He's making the sequels with James Cameron. I'm in New Zealand on the set of the avatar sequel. Restarting the three point, three billion dollar film industry, which provides CD, four thousand jobs can't come soon enough. Is that the beginning I mean? How realistic is that that this could be a real bone for for making New Zealand I think if we get an Thurston getting hard the. The question that we could take advantage of this situation and Einar NFL from from the film commission has been talking about this, but I've also been speaking to a lot of hits of production houses by stable New Zealand, is obviously people from screen time and around the traps that have big co pros at corporate productions that are shaping up and down the country that would instantly put on hiatus, and all I need is one or two people own honesty I think there was one production that needed just three Canadians to come back into the country for the entire production of. I I. Two hundred people I'm to kick back into into action and I know when the the covered. The new protocols were released by the New Zealand Film Commission in Ed slutty started to get kicked back off. I know we side Fatih Three's production kicked off last week, and then narrow from running for the final season, the casting again for ads, which means casting agents awaking again, and you'll have location scouts out, and about the power of the dog started again today, the giant campion one at so. Those are ones that were already in production kicking off We've always been looked at as a great place to shoes. If we're able to let people into the country, that's the biggest cave. There's absolutely no reason why they can't be a bone. You've got those brand. New spanking studios have just opened as well which I'm dying for a snake Baker and we still up. And we need to. We need to capitalize on this because. It's a big industry, and it also means if we can't blanket late hold of internationals, and even to be on cruise. It means we have to look to new. Zealand people to to fill those and I know a lot of companies will recasting roles was looking for New Zealanders because they could get their internationals beckon. So. I haven't been asked to be customer waivers. As Weaver and etta. Consider and it's great having their Avatar people back in here. It's a huge production, and it employs just hundreds and hundreds down through the tracks, but they'll be all sorts of other little ones cruising bacon as well. I certainly hope so. That should be entitled to that same exemption. So, what do you think the future is for international film festivals I'm so interesting and what can has announced last week? Week as it headed selection and couldn't show them the festival. Obviously, they cancelled the still, but they've given it as a kind of a badge of honor with Anderson's French dispatch might go to white to say this film I'm at a host of other international films I've fifty of them have been given the CAN stamp of approval so that they can go out and be released as a can. Qualify as sedating when you look at the the cover or the poster, and it's got the the Ken Competition or out of commission in can am which is rents massive badge of honor. But you've also got an opportunity for those films into use to market themselves, which is really really really great thing to do. Venus sounds like I'm not sure. If you saw a story at the weekend. focusing on in it's just it's just nobody there in the city. Obviously tourism's it's. It's only way of making money and the Venice film festivals, Joe and September the governor has said that that phone will go ahead. And if it does so, the feast is confirmed it will be the first big major festival, so everybody's diversified, but everyone wants the film festival circuit back up and running well as Kate Rogers sees the international film. Festival circuit is the life blood of entertainment, reporter and filmmakers distributors the entire industry. Some have canceled this year. Others have gone online New Zealand's is just weeks away from going online for the first time in its forty eight year history, but getting the it for the new boss. Martin Ray Bouts has been tough the. Interesting thing was was finding US sales, each of us in different roles dealing with. The anxiety that came with covert the not knowing what the future might hold from all different corners, all of our partners in everyone that the fistful normally interacts with. They didn't know what the future was looking like, and they certainly didn't know what a digital online fiscal future was looking like. Are you talking about sponsors? And all sorts of says he s and the rights holders industry it is both internationally and locally because it it had never been done before, and there were a couple of vegetables internationally, that will sort of jumped on the online format before us better yet. We've been making it up as we go along and it take like all of lockdown to get their the. Where we, we started before lockdown, we had made the decision to go online before lockdown with Sydney through all of lockdown. I've never worked so hard. As in lockdown very sick of my friends, telling you what yet? Another Netflix's series that Binge Watch like. I don't want to hear that. Looking twenty, four, seven I'm talking to people in new. York. That I'm talking to people in Christ church. I'm not sleeping with US moving into one now. Is this a mistake that you've made this decision that? The New Zealand filmfest was going online rather than. No I'm so glad you asked me that because. It gives me a chance to to have. People understand that it takes six months to set up a film festival. The work that goes into actually takes a year like we've been.

And so you have this continual tension with the New Zealand government which is an New Zealand politics. Which is as a country. Our economy does run on a lot of migration is traditionally run. And we're not quite sure how to run it without steady inflow of migrants coming in but it is electorally is about You know some people say five fifteen percent Some say more voters who are very concerned about Levels of migration an impact on the cultural issues around New Zealand New Zealand's cultural identity so deliver this issue of false expectations. I mean we need the oversea students. We need those people who come in from the Pacific nations to pick fruit. But does it create problems because they have the expectation that that will lead to residency. Yeah well I mean you know a lot of these migrant exploitation scams this is normally the key calls of them which is the disconnect between the way that the lucky hood of getting residency has been portrayed to many of these people are applying for it. This is the reality as it has changed over time and the thousands gathered like a another surge of immigration for example that was a time when about eighty percent of migrants came from offshore. And today when you're talking about people applying for residencies it's the other way round. It's people who are already here and who are on work visas who are now applying for residencies and that is a situation where people have given up a lot to come to a foreign country and with the expectation that Yes it's going to be difficult and they're going to have to jump through a few hurdles but this is still a likely pathway to residency but those opportunities of basically shrunk if you looked at the number of work visas versus the number of residencies. They were kind of planning for I. Think in two thousand and eight. They're about one hundred. Twenty five thousand applicants On work visas for a planning range of that. Kinda hit about forty seven thousand a year. And now you're looking at about two hundred and nine hundred thousand people in where he visas. Applying for about Thirty Seventh A playing range about thirty seven thousand. Wow so yeah I mean. It really illustrates the pressure on on immigration New Zealand and appreciate from migrants to won't be citizens a New Zealand and I think that it's a New Zealand cultural thing as well. I mean I think that we like to see ourselves as a nation of migrants and as a welcoming country for migrants so we have traditionally been very reluctant to put in place schemes that you know schemes to say Some little Dubai. Where in Dubai they have. A large number of migrant workers come in and they have no expectation that they're going to become citizens or residents of Dubai on a permanent basis. It's just the way it is. Yeah that's the way it is but New Zealand culturally. I think that we have very much shied away from that kind of system because I guess we see that as You know creating effectively a migrant underclassmen ironically arguably You have created a similar situation if you are Basically putting people in work visas and they get they're able to keep renewing them fourteen years but they.

"All right so like I mentioned earlier. I've been really digging Kiwi Slang this week and so here's another word. You can expect me to slip into our conversation soon. Jan Dole's calls that's the The New Zealand word for flip flops and it was coined by Kiwi businessman. Who was inspired by the footwear? He saw on a trip to Japan so soon after he and his son started started making their own version of the rubber slip on in their own garage in New Zealand and as a way to pay homage to the culture that inspired it all they name their product. Gender handles which is sort of like a Portmanteau of the words Japanese and sandals. So you know the kids show power rangers right it. Of course the power rangers. I can explain it to you so you know the show was massively popular. It was filmed with us like existing footage in Japan. And then a new characters in California another Mrs but but The show is a massive success and got imported all around world but not to New Zealand. the show is actually bad there for being too violent and and this was true even after production for the show shifted New Zealand in the late nineties. Ladies more than a dozen seasons long running show were filled their ears but kids in New Zealand. Didn't get to see any of it until the ban was lifted in two thousand eleven. Thank goodness was lifted. But you've probably heard all the rumors about all the crazy laws that New Zealand supposedly has like the one that prohibits quote militias bell ringing being a unfortunately while that was really a law New Zealand. At one point it is no longer on the books in fact the country has been pretty good about updating. Its laws and doing away with weird eared outdated stuff but there is at least one exception. Though according to the New Zealand Herald it is still against the law to say no questions asked when advertising advertising a reward for missing property so if your dog drives off with the car one day you can't post a flyer asking them for their return. No questions asked if you you could actually be slammed with a fine of up to two hundred dollars. Here's a Nice feel-good story from a few years back in two thousand and sixteen forty thousand New Zealanders banded together and bought the country of brand new public beach and when the eight hundred meter stretch us in up for sale early that year. Two brothers in law. Adam Gardner and Wayne major major decided to launch a crowd funding campaign to try and keep the beach from falling into private ownership so during the campaign individuals incorporations pitched in to help by the park. The New Zealand government even got into action. They threw in a two hundred twenty five thousand dollars a US dollars to the effort and in the end donors raised about one point seven million dollars which which was enough to by the beach from the original owner and today the beaches run as part of the Abel Tasman National Park where it's free and open to the public. Yeah it's definitely a feel good story but I Actually think I can top this story because one thing I learned this week is that New Zealand is home to the first of its kind a nationwide secret. Santa Gift Exchange so this program started on twitter back in two thousand ten when one New Zealand user suggested that anyone interested should connect through the site and then dig through the post of they're assigned person in order to sniff out clues about the kind of gift that they might like the first couple of gift. Exchanges proved so popular with the public. That in two thousand thirteen thirteen New Zealand's postal service actually signed on as the official sponsor so the program continued in the years since even adding a physical warehouse to help deal deal with all the packages now. Thousands of Kiwis take part each year. And it's all for the sake of making a strange holiday just a little bit brighter. Oh I really like and and I think it is better than my story and it's also seasonal which is I- richest great. So so congratulations. I think you get the trophy all right.

"Yes. We'll what's that mango. So you're you're never going to believe this but I finally found a New Zealand bird. That's even more endearing than the Kiwi. I actually feel weird saying this but I know I need congratulate you because I'm pretty sure this has been a dream of yours for a while now so so congrats If you I mean some days I doubted it was even possible but this week. Yeah I read about these big green parrots that lived there called chaos and they are so mischievous end so clever that I just had to give them the top spot. Because I know it's a controversial pick but I like to keep things spicy. You're saying this is actually controversial. Yeah so I'm like Kiwis aren't universally adored. They're kind of these one one and a half foot tall mischief makers and they will steal laces for boots or strip the rubber off your windshield wipers. But the wildest prank I've heard is that actually drag traffic cones into the middle of the road and leave them there and some researchers believe. This is an intentional act. Like it's a crafty way to get drivers to slow lowdown enough that the parents can beg for food. That is kind of a neat trick. It also does on a little bit dangerous. I wonder how many of these hit. Yeah I mean it's become a real problem but the good news is that there's this conservation team in New Zealand. That's been testing this ingenious way to keep the chaos distracted. They've installed all these little parrot gyms by the roadside right and so it kind of looks like a Miniature Jungle Gym Swings and spinning toys and little ladders. I guess I kind of feel like everything you've said to this point may not. Actually they be true. But I'm I'm going to go with it. So are these GE you call them. Gyms are these gyms actually helping. Yeah they are so far. Fewer birds are messing with traffic cones and the roads are a whole lot safer. But you know these parrot. Gyms aren't the only out of the box solution that New Zealand's come up with over the past few years from state-approved wizards to hard-driving hard-driving dogs.

"And so I heard about this this weekend while I was driving north into wine country. And I didn't originally I this is how this is how accustomed IM to hearing about these types of shooters. My assumption was that it happened in New Zealand, and they said, oh, we were attacked not because we are open to people because we're closed off. But because we're open, and I my initial gut reaction was oh, we've had another another Muslim shooting like somebody's a mad at New Zealand now, and they're out and know, they've had some sort of mass shooting and killed fifty people turns out that's not the case at all turns out, it was a white shoot or white nationalist who shot up this a couple of amok. I read one mosque here. This is part of the problem. I wanna get to shot fifty people in a mosque. But I got back this morning and started looking I wanted to read through what had happened. And so one of the things that I try and do is I don't I try not to comment on this stuff until there's been a little bit of time. So that I can analyze what's really happened because as Matt pointed out a little later on earlier this morning. He said there was what did you say? There were reports of multiple shooters and pictures of them on as it was happening live. There was stuff on Twitter. There was pictures that were posted of multiple different guys. Fatigues being arrested, and it was an official multiple reports. That went out that said that there was four people who are arrested three men and one woman, and there were multiple different reports of multiple shooters, and is interesting because a lot of these mass shooting of insolently that's happened where there's been reports of multiple shooters and the officials come out and say, it's just one one shooter, and that's it and I can understand like in the Las Vegas shooting where there was multiple different hotels reporting from miles apart. That there was people coming in saying there shooters nearby and in an area where there's lots of large buildings stuff, you could get on the sound of gunfire could be reflecting and weird ways stuff. So people could think that there's multiple shooters. There's only one in this one it was pretty cut and dry. There's multiple shooters going on. So they caught the one guy. So when are they going to catch the next one? But now supposedly there was only just the one. So is your is. It sounds like your contention is that there was some sort of conspiratorial cover up of more than one shooter. Well, I would say what would be that the is a conspiratorial cover up. But just that there's there seems to be a lack of transparency and the the biggest focus right now from the perspective of the New Zealand government. And the media is rather than dealing with the issue and covering perhaps about the victims and discussing the situation itself the media the narrative pivoted to white nationalism gun control and trying to wipe all evidence of the shoot. From from the internet to eliminate his his manifesto that he wrote they're trying New Zealand has made it a crime to possess footage of the event and someone's already gotten ten years in prison for it for possessing footage of it.
