It's time to cam up... With the Roar fast approaching many hunters will be reaching for their camo clobber. This week we've gone a little mad, with savings right across our camo range, starting at 20% off. http://www.swazi.co.nz/product-category/mens/
This map, courtesy of the Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand, shows New Zealand’s search and rescue area transposed onto Europe. It covers and area of the Pacific and Southern Ocean so big it would include all of Europe (up to the North Pole), the Mediterranean, the Middle East, North Africa and parts of Central Africa almost to the Equator. If an aircraft or ship or boat is in trouble, then it’s the job of the NZ government to help them, calling on the appropriate agencies such as the New Zealand Defence Force’s ships or maritime aircraft.
Did you know that tūī have two voice boxes, make noises so high the human ear can't hear them, and even sing while they're mating? Our Northland conservation advocate, also known as "birdman" talks to RadioLIVE about the tūī. Kimberley
The deceit of a Filipino internet pirate who failed to own up to his illegal activities reveals more stringent vetting of immigrants is necessary. He was given permanent residency. New Zealand cannot rely on the personal honesty of some immigrants. While Vonn Ryan Motomal had no criminal conviction he did not disclose to Immigration NZ that he had been ordered by a US court to pay $35 million for internet piracy. This shows a loophole exists and should be rectified. Motomal was employed as an electronic marketing manager at the failed private college, International Academy of NZ. This college typifies how appalling the international student industry Tertiary Education Minister Steven Joyce is so proud of can be in New Zealand. Last year the college was shut down after it was found corruption and dishonesty were rife. That said, how did Motomal pass the good character test? The answer, he should not have.

"Two additional Oscars should be made for monologue of the year (Taika Waititi’s priest funeral speech) and quote of the year (Rachel House’s CW Officer Paula, comparing herself to Sarah Connor, the “chin up” version). Just a sensational film."
The #Netball community is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Silver Ferns player number 113 and SKY Sport NZ commentator Tania Dalton. Words cannot express how much she will be missed. She will always be in our hearts.
Thirteen’s an unlucky number for most, but for plasma donors it’s just right. That’s the number of different life-saving products that can be made from plasma. Let’s get a thumbs up for the donors who give gold.
It's not often our friends from USAF come to visit, so while they are here they thought it would be a great opportunity to do some C-17 Globemaster low flying training around the lower North Island for the next few days. It's a big aircraft, so will make a bit of noise and it might be a good idea to keep an eye on your pets if you get a fly over.
