It all came to a head in the fourth test at Eden Park with the All Blacks leading the series 2-1. The test and the tour inspired what is arguably the greatest New Zealand sports book, the wonderful Old Heroes by Warwick Roger. This was his greatest test, the All Blacks’ 35-32 win in Johannesburg inspired by two sensational long-range Bunce tries. Modern classicOctober 5, 2013The All Blacks and Springboks play constantly, it seems, in the professional era, but some games stick out more than others. This was a boomer, a barn-stormer, and those who saw the All Blacks win 38-27 at Ellis Park were lucky to witness a bit of everything.

A honey bee colony is highly structured with a queen bee, workers (female) and drones (male) that each have their allotted roles. Many urban beekeepers keep bees because of their fascination with bees and to support pollination in their locality. It is essential that we maintain honey bee colonies and increase the understanding of the nature and importance of bees. Bees are under threat worldwide, including New Zealand, so every effort should be made to support bees and beekeeping, including in urban areas. A bee swarm can be of concern but is infrequent and something bee keepers try to prevent.

Two level 4 lockdowns and closed borders have hit downtown Auckland and Queen St hard, and there is presently no strategy to revitalise the downtown economy. An Auckland restaurateur who heads into a loss-making level 3 faced with closing both his businesses says there needs to be greater awareness of the plight of the hospitality industry. LAWRENCE SMITH/Stuff Matthew Fitzgerald, pictured at his former restaurant Madame George, faced closing two businesses as a result of the pandemic. “I don’t even know if [the Government] know what’s going on or they choose not to know what’s going on... I don’t know if it’s wilful ignorance or they’re too busy.”Restaurant Association chief executive Marisa Bidois said while it was “a relief” to see Auckland going into level 3, it wouldn’t be a salve for all businesses.

We need to critically examine whether it’s appropriate to talk about rising house prices as if this is a good thing, when in reality, rising house prices can also play out as rising inequality, crime, mental illness and violence. Newspaper stories and headlines could be rewritten – just substitute any reference to "rising house prices" with "rising inequality" and you have a fuller picture of what is going on. Or we can design our housing system to ensure that everyone, no matter who they are, has access to quality affordable homes. We can make the price of property commensurate with the real value of property. Redesigning the housing system to be more fair and equitable means we are going to have to make some changes in our thoughts, attitudes, policies and practices.
