A war against Iran ?
Makes me think of Bush in 2003 and his "weapons of mass destruction"...

What a coincidence !!!
Like Trump , just a bit more than a year before re-election.
Don't you feel a pattern here ? Or are tou too dumb to see it ?
Curious, dumb rhymes with Trump. Coincidence ? :roll:

Baddy is right.
Let's face it. USA is the nation of perpetual wars.
What's saving Americans is that USA is isolated from other countries.
Pray that Mexico never become too dangerous

And since Americans don't change president when in war, I fear Trump will be re-elected easily.
There is more stupidity than hydrogen . . .
:P

Maarten van der Weijden, Olympic champion in marathon swimming in Beijing 2008, has just successfully completed his Elfstedentocht swim marathon. Over 200km, 4 days in the water, all to collect money for cancer research. Respect.

Tonight in the all important Pizza News

Scorned Hell Pizza customers bitter over fake burger meat
Maddison Northcott·20:53, Jun 28 2019



Hell Pizza recently added a burger pizza, but the catch is they didn't tell anyone it was actually fake meat.

The people have spoken and they are not happy.

Duped Hell Pizza customers say they feel deceived and betrayed after being sold plant-based patties under the ruse of beef burgers.

The New Zealand-owned chain jumped on the meat-free trend last week, launching a pizza with ingredients including "medium-rare burger patty".

Image
CAMERON BURNELL/STUFF
Hell Pizza General Manager Ben Cumming stirred controversy when the fast food chain brought out a rabbit pizza to coincide with Easter.

On Friday, they revealed the patties crumbled on top of their pizzas, served with honey mustard, onion rings and gherkins, were in fact a plant-based creation from US company Beyond Meat.

Christchurch woman Benna Jackson said failing to disclose what the burger was made from was "so wrong".

Image
HELL PIZZA
In 2017, the company posted pictures on social media of crunchy, edible insects sitting perkily on top of the popular snack to test customer reaction.

She was pleased she decided to stick with her usual order instead of branching out to try the novelty flavour but said because of the stunt, she would never order from Hell Pizza again.

"I would like to know what I am eating. I personally choose to eat real meat ... if I wanted vegan options I would order it."

Hundreds of others agreed with her, with reactions ranging from mild irritation to full outrage.

Commenters on the announcement in the Hell Pizza Facebook page said the meat alternative was "terrible", and they picked it off and fed it to their dog. Others said tricking people into trying vegan food was "unethical and potentially dangerous".

The stunt was "dishonest" and "didn't allow customers to make an informed choice", Trinity Jackson said.

Jackson said the reason for their choice was not relevant, just that all the information was available to make an informed one.

Image
Hell Pizza names include Mischief, Mayhem, and Wrath.

However, she said the meat-free burger was a great idea for a pizza topping and was pleased vegans would have more choice.

"[I have] no problem with them making a meat free pizza, but I have a big problem with the deception and non disclosure."

Hell said it had sold 3000 of the pizzas since last Friday and only one customer had guessed that the patties were plant-based.

According to a survey done by Hell, 80 percent of eaters said they were pleasantly surprised or unfazed to find out it was plant-based, and more than 70 percent would buy it again.

Concerns were raised that the meat-free alternative would include unexpended ingredients and put those with allergies at risk, but Beyond Meat products are soy, dairy and gluten-free. An information tab on the website included a full ingredient list.

Sarah Schaap said the advertising "didn't bother" her and she would usually check what a patty contained before ordering.

"Given that my son has coeliac disease I'm very wary of ingredients," she said.

Others came to Hell's defence, calling the pizza "progressive".

"You don't really miss not having meat in the pizza. I mean, I can eat this and not complain," one woman said after tasting the pizza for the first time.

Another said they "don't really mind whether it's meat or not to be honest. I mean, food is food".

Becca Herman said plant-blased products had the potential to significantly reduce the damage caused to the environment by animal agriculture.

Using meat-like substitutes seemed like a "great alternative" for those seeking to reduce the harm, she said.

"I so far haven't had a chance to try them, but I love the idea of them."

Ghost Note:
I've been a Hell Pizza customer for well over a decade, I don't know what happens in Christchurch but locally they we're advertising the "burger" topping with "meat as fake as the Donald's wall". Most of their advertising is humorous hell/devil related and topical, and can be a little close to the bone for some, particularly the god botherers that infest our little slice of paradise. They appear to be totally transparent about the source and contents of the ingredients in their food as far as the ge free gm free glutin free free range and of course, like the world, may contain nuts.....

Geothermal mudpool that burst into Rotorua woman's backyard could become permanent garden feature

Benn Bathgate·15:38, Jun 26th, 2019

Susan Gedye might have to get used to having a steaming hole to a sulphurous underworld in her backyard.

The Rotorua woman awoke on Tuesday morning to what she thought was an earthquake but later discovered a mudpool had opened behind her house.

"There was mud flying everywhere, it was shaking everything."

Image
BENN BATHGATE/STUFF
Susan Gedye said she was alerted to the new mudpool outside her home when everything started shaking on Tuesday morning.

Gedye's garden, on Rotorua's Meade St close to the Whakarewarewa Living Māori Village, was welcoming the region's latest mudpool.

GNS volcanologist Brad Scott, who visited the site on Tuesday morning, said it had been the location of geothermal activity before, but "this time round it's a little bit different".

Image
Supplied
GNS staff have been in site investigating and monitoring the new mud pool.

He said there were three scenarios for the site.

"The normal behaviour is for it to cool down and go away," he said.

The other two options were for it to remain active, or the least likely option was for the site to expand.

Image
SUPPLIED
GNS Science volcanologist Brad Scott said the eruption was 'part and parcel of living in Rotorua.'

He said given the amount of heat being given off, "it looks like it wants to stay there".

He said GNS would continue to monitor the site, but said Meade St residents had little to fear.

"I don't think there's an issue. It's part and parcel of living in Rotorua."

Image
BENN BATHGATE/STUFF
Rotorua Lakes Council said the region is no stranger to geothermal activity.

On Tuesday, when her house started rattling at 2am, Susan Gedye thought it was an earthquake, a big one too.

"After about two minutes I went to the kitchen and thought shoot, something's not right here."

Then she had a look outside to see hot mud flying from the ground.


She said she alerted Rotorua Lakes Council to the eruption of mud and steam billowing out of the bank in her garden, and they initially told her she would be safe to stay the night.

It wasn't a good night's sleep.

"It was shaking the bed all night so it was hard to sleep. It was a long night."

She said that by morning the advice had changed.

"There was mud flying everywhere and they said it might be time to go."

Gedye spoke to Stuff outside her property as steam poured into the sky and the odd spurt of mud was flung upwards, with a loud bubbling noise.

She was relaxed about her situation however, at one point joking she should start charging the curious sightseers.

She also said she was able to move her and her two children in with her father, so she's "houseless but not homeless".

'I'm just thankful no one was hurt."

She said the area had seen geothermal activity before, with steam bursting from the bank in 2017.

"It just came out of the bank and stopped, but it's worse this time."

A council spokesperson said their geothermal inspector had checked the sight and observed venting under pressure from a hole in the lip of the bank with wet mud also being thrown out of the hole.

"There was some ground collapse later in the morning and later in the day the occupant of the property where the activity was occurring was advised to move out as a safety precaution."

This just in from the tourism awards


Springfield Store and Cafe: Come for the award-winning pies, stay for the abuse
Blair Ensor·08:17, June 30th, 2019

A rural Canterbury cafe has attracted dozens of terrible reviews and a visit from police offering customer service advice. Its owner has been described as the rudest woman in New Zealand. BLAIR ENSOR reports.

Springfield, about 65 kilometres west of Christchurch, is the last petrol stop on State Highway 73 before the road snakes through the Southern Alps via Arthur's Pass to the West Coast.

The rural town, which has about 500 residents, is best known for its large pink doughnut sculpture, a nod to cartoon character Homer Simpson who lives in a town of the same name and loves doughnuts.

In more recent times, conversations about the town have turned to the Springfield Store and Cafe – dubbed the "F… Off Shop" - which has attracted some of the worst feedback of any cafe in New Zealand.

Image
STUFF
Karyn Cullingford and her husband Donald own the Springfield Cafe and Store. She's been called the "Wicked Witch of Springfield" by a reviewer.

Since February 2014, the cafe has been the subject of 101 reviews on TripAdvisor, including 71 "terrible" ratings, the most recent of which was posted in the past fortnight.

Customers have likened it to Fawlty Towers, a British sitcom about a badly run hotel, and say the owners are grumpy, rude, abusive and a disgrace to hospitality.

There are mixed reviews about the cafe's food and coffee. It's twice won national awards for its pies. A flat white will cost you $5.30.

"The best part of this place was the salt on the average chips. Worst service I've ever experienced and the … rudest," a February review says.

"Horrible customer service. I don't like saying anything bad about a place, but I couldn't help myself here. Rude. Unfriendly. The food isn't even good. Do yourself a favour and keep driving," another review posted a fortnight later says.

Among the three five star reviews the cafe has received is one from a customer last August who says the food is good but "we generally stop purely for the entertainment". "The lady is so grumpy . . . but she can cook. We recommend stopping by. If you're feeling brave, make a complaint."

Police say they have received complaints from people who've visited the cafe. They've spoken to the owners and provided "customer service advice".

Stuff has been told of people being chased from the cafe by the owners. Others have left in tears.

Some Springfield locals boycott the cafe, which they believe has tarnished the town's reputation.

"It's an embarrassment to our community," resident Graeme Dawson told Stuff. "I want them gone – the whole town wants them gone."

'AN UTTER DISGRACE'

Chloe Tipple and several friends visited the Springfield Store and Cafe in early January and watched as a woman was abused by a staff member and left in tears.

The woman, an Australian tourist, was with her partner eating lunch at the cafe and politely asked the barista when their coffees would be ready.

After some confusion about the sort of coffee the woman had ordered, the man "proceeded to humiliate her", Tipple says. He yelled that he'd give her money back, then got inches from her face and insulted her, telling her she was rude.

The woman "burst into tears" and left with her partner without finishing their food.

Image
STUFF
The Springfield Store and Cafe has been a mainstay of the Springfield community for more than 50 years.

Tipple, from Christchurch, had never visited the cafe and was unaware of its reputation.

"It was like he [the staff member] flicked a switch. I think he was probably under pressure but even if you're busy you don't snap at a customer like that."

Appalled at what she'd seen, Tipple felt compelled to write a review on TripAdvisor. She was amazed to find dozens of posts from people who'd also had terrible experiences.

"How embarrassing for us as a nation to have a cafe renowned for bad customer service. What an utter disgrace."

Locals in the town are reluctant to talk publicly about the cafe, but say there have been several incidents where customers have left in tears. The busier the cafe is, the angrier the couple who own it seems to get.

Image
STUFF
Springfield, population about 500, is a tight knit community, home to three cafes and service station.

Dawson, who's chairman of the Springfield township committee, says the cafe is run by a "bunch of lunatics who hate serving people".

"You don't have to talk to too many people before you come across somebody who's had a bad experience there."

Springfield is a "natural stopping place" for people heading east or west on State Highway 73 and the cafe "does nothing for this township's reputation", he says.

"It's become known for the F… Off Shop because that's what you get told [when you go there]. If you stop there you won't be treated like a human - you're more than likely to get abused."

Dawson, who's lived in the town since 1997, says many in the "tight knit" community want the cafe shut down, but they're powerless to do anything other than pull their support.

The Springfield Store and Cafe has been a mainstay of the Springfield community for more than 50 years. It's one of three cafes in the town. The next place you can get coffee en route to the West Coast is Arthur's Pass, an hour's drive away.

Image
STUFF
Springfield farmer Graeme Dawson believes the cafe has tarnished the town's reputation and he wants the owners gone.

Former Selwyn mayor Bill Woods bought the business and the building that houses it in 1983.

He and his wife ran the store and cafe for several years before selling up and leasing the building to the new owner.

The business has passed through several hands since then. Karyn and Donald Cullingford, the current owners, took on the lease nearly a decade ago several years after they moved south from Auckland.

Woods says he and his wife find it "a little disturbing that they [the Cullingfords] are not treating their customers the way we did".

"There's nothing I can do because they comply with the lease. Of course we don't have it in the lease that they have to be nice to their customers because that's a given. People won't come back if you're not nice to them."

He acknowledges that he could choose not to renew their lease, but says that's not an option.

"The present lessees invested a lot of money in buying the business off the previous owner. If I was not to renew the lease that would mean that I would ruin their investment. Bill Woods doesn't do that sort of thing, he wouldn't be able to sleep at night.

"The best way to help the community if they don't like the business and the people themselves is to give [the Cullingfords] a lease with a reasonable period so they can sell the business and recoup their investment, and that's what I've done."

NEW ZEALAND'S NASTIEST WOMAN?

Karyn Cullingford was the only person working at the Springfield Store and Cafe when Stuff visited earlier this month. Her husband was at home.

If you read the reviews, Cullingford is apparently the "rudest woman in New Zealand", known for being blunt, unfriendly, and seemingly disinterested in her job.

"Avoid this place," a post on TripAdvisor in September last year says. "The lady behind the counter had zero manners and zero respect for her paying customers."

Stuff sat and ate lunch at the cafe - an overcooked steak pie and a lacklustre flat white – before approaching Cullingford for comment.

During that time, there was nothing about the way she acted to suggest she was the "Wicked Witch of Springfield", as one reviewer wrote in 2017. She was pleasant to the handful of customers who came into the store, and even managed a couple of jokes.

In between serving people and making coffees, Cullingford tells Stuff that she refuses to read the online reviews about the cafe, most of which are written by "keyboard warriors". The 60-year-old laughs when she's told some of the words used to describe her.

"A lot of people that read [the reviews] come in here to get bitten. Do I seem like New Zealand's nastiest woman?"

Cullingford, who placed fifth and second respectively in the cafe boutique section of the 2012 and 2013 Bakels New Zealand Supreme Pie Awards, acknowledges that on occasion, particularly when she's worked a lengthy stretch without a day off, she can be "a tad grumpy".

"I know I make damn good food and ... when people diss my food I do get a bit upset."

She doesn't buy into the idea that the customer is always right. In short, they're not, and people's expectations when it comes to the service they receive from cafe staff are too high.

"People should come for the food, not my wonderful personality," Cullingford says.

Those who leave their manners at the door are a particular bugbear.

"As far as I'm concerned, we don't have a class system in this country. You're just as worthy as I am regardless of your creed, your colour, your religion or your age. Everybody deserves some form of manners.

"If you come in here and treat me like a bit of s..., you're going to get it back."

Cullingford says she's been called some "really nasty names by people on the other side of the counter".

Over the years, she's been threatened with knives, and rape, and "I've had customers hold me over the counter and hit me in the face".

Cullingford says that she has a habit of talking to herself, so she doesn't forget what she's doing. On occasion that's got her in trouble. She recalls an incident where she was muttering caramel milkshake repeatedly and a customer said to her "are you calling me a b....?". That resulted in a negative review, she says.

Image
STUFF
Donald Cullingford and his wife Karyn have owned the Springfield Store and Cafe for nearly a decade.

Cullingford and her husband have seen a lawyer about the online reviews, which she believes have deterred some people from visiting the cafe. She also acknowledges that people stop by to see what all the fuss is about.

"If I'm prepared to go further with it she [the lawyer] is sitting there waiting … but I don't want the stress. A lot of it I've brought on myself – I'll totally say that, hands up."

Cullingford says she and her husband shifted to Canterbury for a change of scenery and a better lifestyle.

"We didn't think we were moving to a different country."

Telling people they were from Auckland was the "biggest mistake of our lives".

Cantabrians are "nasty", she says. "I get people who come in here and say 'don't give me any of that f...ing Auckland coffee'. Do you not understand how people [in Canterbury] hate Aucklanders? Man, it just blows me away."

Cullingford says that when she and her husband first bought the business locals came to them wanting discounts and favours.

"We had no loyalties to anyone in this town. I said 'no, I'm not here to make friends – I'm here to make money'."

Locals say the couple didn't involve themselves in community activities and became isolated.

"People in this town don't like me and I acknowledge that," Cullingford says.

There's some good news for those who want the Springfield Store and Cafe shut down. It's on the market and people – "the type … who don't care about reviews" – have shown an interest in buying it, she says.

Canadian cartoonist loses job after illustration of Trump went viral

Michael de Adder
Image

New York (CNN) A Canadian cartoonist's illustration of President Donald Trump playing golf over the bodies of two drowned migrants went viral Wednesday. Two days later, Michael de Adder said on Twitter that he had been let go by a publishing company in New Brunswick, Canada.

De Adder's illustration depicted Trump asking the two dead migrants, "Do you mind if I play through?"

The cartoon refers to the image of Oscar Alberto Martínez and his 23-month-old daughter, Angie Valeria, lying face down in water surrounded by reeds. The two drowned while attempting to cross the Rio Grande River to get into the United States.

Stupid. The cartoon depicts Trump just as he is. No care for ordinary human life.
This censorship is becoming dangerous.

I woke up this morning to radio reports predicting commuter chaos.....

Derailed freight train in Wellington cancels services for 20,000 commuters
07:41, Jul 03 2019

Most peak time train services have been cancelled in Wellington on Wednesday morning after a freight train derailed.

The only services operating are on the Johnsonville line, which was not affected by the incident. Other lines into downtown Wellington have been damaged and only a handful of replacement buses are available, meaning up to 20,000 passengers travelling during the weekday peak will need to find different ways to travel.

It's possible the disruption could continue into the afternoon, as crews work round the clock to repair the damaged lines.

Crews inspecting train tracks after a freight train was derailed in Wellington, causing delays for the commuter network.

The NZ Transport Agency is warning motorists in the capital to expect additional delays.

On Wednesday morning KiwiRail chief operations officer Todd Moyle said the three derailed wagons and remainder of the train were removed from the site by 5am, using two cranes and crews working through the night.

Image
JEFF TOLLAN/STUFF
A wagon had lost its rear wheels in the incident.

"The recovery of the derailed wagons was complicated by having to work around the overhead wires. The power supply to these wires had to be isolated before the recovery could commence," Moyle said.

Wagons on a freight train derailed while it was leaving Wellington freight yard about 7.40pm on Tuesday, Moyle said. The wagons remained upright but the engineer was unable to stop the train for another 230m.

The incident damaged tracks and . points on the main tracks into central Wellington.

Freight trains coming into the city overnight were cancelled.

It meant there were no trains running between Wellington and Petone, Wellington and Porirua, Wellington and Melling, or Wellington and Masterton for the morning commute.

Metlink had been unable to source bus replacements, aside from six buses which were due to leave Masterton for Wellington at 6.47am only.

Image
JEFF TOLLAN/STUFF
KiwiRail had brought in two cranes and staff from across the North Island.

"The disabled freight train has caused damage to the tracks and points at Wellington junction which is where the Kapiti and Hutt Valley lines meet just outside the Wellington station area," Metlink posted on its website.

"Work crews are currently on site assessing the damage and required repairs, but at this stage we have no indication of how long this will take."

The Johnsonville line was not affected, although previously advertised bus replacements would be running as trains, Metlink said.

"feel like a coffee bro? yeah I could go a coffee mate, tracks f#$ked bro, yeah it's f#$ked mate, how 'bout that coffee"*

In a statement, Metlink added: "We advise taking alternative transport or delaying travel if possible. We have not been able to source buses to transport the around 20,000 passengers who usually travel by train during a weekday peak."

Metlink buses will be accepting rail tickets, and customers should refer to the journey planner on the front page of the Metlink website for alternative bus routes.

KiwiRail had brought in two cranes and staff from across the North Island to help local staff remove the damaged wagons and repair tracks, and were working through the night. The cause of the derailment is being investigated.


Moyle said KiwiRail apologised for the inconvenience and was working as quickly as possible to restore the network to its normal operation, adding "safety is our utmost priority."

KAPITI LINE:

Reduced train services stopping at all stations will run on a half hourly timetable from 6am between Waikanae and Porirua only. These services will depart Waikanae on the hour and at 30 minutes past the hour.

If you are wanting to travel between Porirua and Wellington, Metlink recommends alternative transport or avoiding travel.

HUTT VALLEY LINE:

Reduced train services stopping at all stations will run on a half hourly timetable from 6am between Upper Hutt and Petone only. These services will depart Upper Hutt at :00 and :30 past the hour.

If you are wanting to travel between Petone and Wellington, Metlink recommends alternative transport or avoiding travel.

WAIRARAPA LINE:


Only six buses are available to travel between Masterton and Wellington in the morning, which will be departing at 6.47am only. Metlink recommends alternative transport or avoiding travel.

MELLING LINE:


All Melling line services are cancelled. Please arrange alternative transport or avoid travel.

JOHNSONVILLE LINE:

Train services will continue to run to timetable on the Johnsonville line as it is not affected by the derailment.

The current bus replaced services departing Wellington at 5.32am, 6.42am and 7.42am as well as the services departing Johnsonville at 6am, 7.15am and 8.15am will run as trains. These services will continue to be bus replaced from July 4; the buses normally used for these services will be re-deployed to transport passengers into Wellington from the disrupted lines.

CAPITAL CONNECTION:

The service that runs from Palmerston North to Wellington will be replaced by buses for all stations to Ōtaki. Passengers in Waikanae and Paraparaumu are asked to make alternative arrangements, due to limited bus availability.

Derailed freight train in Wellington cancels services for 20,000 commuters
07:41, Jul 03 2019

Most peak time train services have been cancelled in Wellington on Wednesday morning after a freight train derailed.

The only services operating are on the Johnsonville line, which was not affected by the incident. Other lines into downtown Wellington have been damaged and only a handful of replacement buses are available, meaning up to 20,000 passengers travelling during the weekday peak will need to find different ways to travel.

It's possible the disruption could continue into the afternoon, as crews work round the clock to repair the damaged lines.

Crews inspecting train tracks after a freight train was derailed in Wellington, causing delays for the commuter network.

The NZ Transport Agency is warning motorists in the capital to expect additional delays.

On Wednesday morning KiwiRail chief operations officer Todd Moyle said the three derailed wagons and remainder of the train were removed from the site by 5am, using two cranes and crews working through the night.

A wagon had lost its rear wheels in the incident.

"The recovery of the derailed wagons was complicated by having to work around the overhead wires. The power supply to these wires had to be isolated before the recovery could commence," Moyle said.

Wagons on a freight train derailed while it was leaving Wellington freight yard about 7.40pm on Tuesday, Moyle said. The wagons remained upright but the engineer was unable to stop the train for another 230m.

The incident damaged tracks and . points on the main tracks into central Wellington.

Freight trains coming into the city overnight were cancelled.

It meant there were no trains running between Wellington and Petone, Wellington and Porirua, Wellington and Melling, or Wellington and Masterton for the morning commute.

Metlink had been unable to source bus replacements, aside from six buses which were due to leave Masterton for Wellington at 6.47am only.

KiwiRail had brought in two cranes and staff from across the North Island.

"The disabled freight train has caused damage to the tracks and points at Wellington junction which is where the Kapiti and Hutt Valley lines meet just outside the Wellington station area," Metlink posted on its website.

"Work crews are currently on site assessing the damage and required repairs, but at this stage we have no indication of how long this will take."

The Johnsonville line was not affected, although previously advertised bus replacements would be running as trains, Metlink said.

"feel like a coffee bro? yeah I could go a coffee mate, tracks f#$ked bro, yeah it's f#$ked mate, how 'bout that coffee"*

In a statement, Metlink added: "We advise taking alternative transport or delaying travel if possible. We have not been able to source buses to transport the around 20,000 passengers who usually travel by train during a weekday peak."

Metlink buses will be accepting rail tickets, and customers should refer to the journey planner on the front page of the Metlink website for alternative bus routes.

KiwiRail had brought in two cranes and staff from across the North Island to help local staff remove the damaged wagons and repair tracks, and were working through the night. The cause of the derailment is being investigated.


Moyle said KiwiRail apologised for the inconvenience and was working as quickly as possible to restore the network to its normal operation, adding "safety is our utmost priority."

KAPITI LINE:

Reduced train services stopping at all stations will run on a half hourly timetable from 6am between Waikanae and Porirua only. These services will depart Waikanae on the hour and at 30 minutes past the hour.

If you are wanting to travel between Porirua and Wellington, Metlink recommends alternative transport or avoiding travel.

HUTT VALLEY LINE:

Reduced train services stopping at all stations will run on a half hourly timetable from 6am between Upper Hutt and Petone only. These services will depart Upper Hutt at :00 and :30 past the hour.

If you are wanting to travel between Petone and Wellington, Metlink recommends alternative transport or avoiding travel.

WAIRARAPA LINE:


Only six buses are available to travel between Masterton and Wellington in the morning, which will be departing at 6.47am only. Metlink recommends alternative transport or avoiding travel.

MELLING LINE:


All Melling line services are cancelled. Please arrange alternative transport or avoid travel.

JOHNSONVILLE LINE:

Train services will continue to run to timetable on the Johnsonville line as it is not affected by the derailment.

The current bus replaced services departing Wellington at 5.32am, 6.42am and 7.42am as well as the services departing Johnsonville at 6am, 7.15am and 8.15am will run as trains. These services will continue to be bus replaced from July 4; the buses normally used for these services will be re-deployed to transport passengers into Wellington from the disrupted lines.

CAPITAL CONNECTION:

The service that runs from Palmerston North to Wellington will be replaced by buses for all stations to Ōtaki. Passengers in Waikanae and Paraparaumu are asked to make alternative arrangements, due to limited bus availability.

I was a big fan of the swedish version of mad magazine from around 1966-67 and onward.
it was basically the american magazine translated into swedish. and greatly translated too.
we had most of the tv series that mad magazine made parodies of on swedish tv, and, of course, we had the movies.
great cartoonists and writers. lots of classic stuff.

in the early 80's, though, it started to incorporate swedish material. some of it was good, but most of it not so much.
it lost its touch for me. it was discontinued 1993 (a couple of attempts to revive it occurred, though, but nothing came out of those).

Jim Beam warehouse filled with 45,000 barrels of bourbon burns down
Hamza Shaban
09:37, Jul 04 2019

US firefighters were battling to contain a massive blaze at a Jim Beam warehouse with 45,000 barrels of bourbon, as crews struggle to contain damaging runoff that has already begun to flow into a nearby creek and the Kentucky River.

Government officials say the runoff - a mixture of whiskey, hose water, barrel residue and charred debris - will potentially lead to a "severe fish kill" as bacteria feast on the alcohol and deplete the water's oxygen supply.

To minimise the impact, officials have advised firefighters to let the fire burnout, said John Mura, a spokesman for the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet. "Given the extreme heat of this fire, it would not do a lot to put out this fire and would simply carry the bourbon residue a lot further."

Bourbon up in flames. A warehouse fire at a Jim Beam distillery in Woodford County, Kentucky, saw firefighters from four counties responded to the blaze.
The building housed more than 2.3 million gallons of bourbon, based on the number of barrels and their typical volume. The Energy and Environment Cabinet has also alerted the drinking water plant, Mura said.

Drew Chandler, the emergency management director for Woodford County, told local news station WKYT that lighting might have sparked the fire at one warehouse Tuesday night local time before spreading to a second storage facility. Crews managed to extinguish one, he said, but the other fire was proving more challenging.

Flames and smoke rise from a bourbon warehouse fire. To minimise the impact, officials advised firefighters to let the fire burnout.
A standard barrel contains about 200 litres of bourbon, which is aged for years to achieve its desired colour and flavour. The bourbon gives the flames ample material to burn, Chandler said. Generally, any alcohol that's at least 80 proof - like most bourbon - is flammable.

Chandler told the Louisville Courier Journal that the fire was burning so hot he could feel the heat even standing as much as a football field away, or about 100 metres. The intense temperatures were keeping the crews from getting close enough, he said.

"We are thankful that no one was injured in this incident, and we are grateful to the courageous firefighters from multiple jurisdictions who brought the fire under control and prevented it from spreading," Jim Beam's parent company, Beam Suntory, said in a statement. "We have a comprehensive warehouse safety program that includes regular inspections and rigorous protocols to promote safety and the security of our aging inventory."

AP
Bourbon mixes with water in the Kentucky River. The runoff - a mixture of whiskey, hose water, barrel residue and charred debris - will potentially lead to a "severe fish kill".
The company operates 126 barrel warehouses, which collectively hold 3.3 million barrels, in the state. The warehouse that was destroyed contained relatively young whiskey, Beam Suntory said, the loss of which will not impact availability.

A September report by the Courier Journal found that facilities where bourbon makers age their products can go without independent safety inspections for decades, raising public safety and environmental questions about an industry central to the state's economy. The report documented a series of warehouse collapses and fires, including a lightning-sparked blaze that burned down a Jim Beam facility in 2003.

In 2010, the state adopted new structural requirements for bourbon warehouses. The rules include mandatory fire suppression systems in new facilities taller than five stories. But older warehouses are not required to update their buildings, according to the report.

In the past year, bourbon distillers have also had to contend with the economic consequences of President Trump's trade war. US whiskey exports slowed during the second half of 2018, after trading partners including the European Union enacted retaliatory tariffs of up to 25 per cent, raising the cost of American-made whiskey and bourbon. Sales fell by 11 per cent from July to December last year, compared with the same period in 2017, according to data compiled by the Distilled Spirits Council.

On July 4th, the high temperature in Anchorage, Alaska was 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

That's the highest temperature ever recorded in Anchorage...

In Italy, a Decades-Long Search for a Missing Girl Brings Another Twist
By Elisabetta Povoledo
July 11, 2019

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/11/world/europe/italy-vatican-emanuela-orlandi.html

ROME — Thirty-six years ago, the teenage daughter of a Vatican City employee vanished off a Rome street on her way home, beginning one of Italy’s most enduring mysteries: Over the years, reports have variously linked her fate to the Sicilian Mafia, the K.G.B. and the plot to assassinate Pope John Paul II.

On Thursday, the latest trail led her family and a Vatican-appointed forensic scientist to two tombs inside the Vatican walls, the burial places of princesses well over a century dead.

The team only found another mystery: The tombs were empty. Even the bodies of the dead princesses were missing.

It was yet another strange turn for a family that has suffered false leads, red herrings and intense media attention since the girl, Emanuela Orlandi, disappeared at age 15 on June 22, 1983. Their quest to discover her fate has taken them down many tortuous paths, following up on tips, anonymous letters and reports of sightings.

Like other well-scrutinized cold cases around the world, Emanuela’s disappearance has inspired many conspiracy theories. She has been linked to the C.I.A., to Bulgarian agents, to a Roman crime gang and to an American archbishop involved in a major Italian banking scandal.

But clues in the case have been scanty, despite investigators’ efforts. This was not the first exhumation in search of her remains.

The path to the tombs began in late 2017, when Emanuela’s brother, Pietro Orlandi, was approached by the first of several people working inside the Vatican who suggested that Emanuela might be buried in the Teutonic Cemetery, which for centuries was a final resting place for people of Germanic origin.

His sources told him to seek the place where an angel was pointing in the cemetery, which is between St. Peter’s Basilica and the Paul VI Audience Hall.

That led Mr. Orlandi to the tomb of Princess Sophie of Hohenlohe, who died in 1836. Giovanni Arcudi, a professor of forensic medicine at the University of Rome Tor Vergata, began the exhumation of the tomb on Thursday.

Mr. Arcudi was authorized by the Vatican’s chief prosecutor to analyze the contents of the tomb — as well as the adjacent tomb of Princess Carlotta Federica of Mecklenburg, who died in 1840 — and take samples for DNA testing. The theory was that Emanuela’s body was inside one of the tombs.

Through the family’s lawyer, Laura Sgro, in February, Mr. Orlandi formally asked the Vatican to open the tomb of Princess Sophie. The family received approval last month to have both tombs opened.

But any hope that the tombs would provide answers to the family were quickly dashed when the Vatican issued a statement hours after the operation began.

“There were no human remains nor funerary urns,” the Vatican spokesman Alessandro Gisotti said in the statement.

Princess Sophie’s tomb led to a large underground space that was “completely empty,” the statement said, while the tomb of Princess Carlotta “had no human remains.”

The Vatican added that the cemetery had undergone work during the first part of the 19th century, and again in the 1960s and 1970s, and that it would examine the documentation regarding these interventions.

On Thursday, Ms. Sgro said the family was trying to understand why they had been sent on yet another fruitless search.

“We expected everything today, but not to find two empty tombs,” she said on the Italian affiliate of Sky News. “We want to know why we were sent there, and why there was nothing.”

After the tombs were found empty, Mr. Orlandi, Emanuela’s brother and the leader of the family’s decades-long efforts, told the Italian affiliate of Sky News, “Part of me was relieved that Emanuela was not there.”

He added in a separate interview on Thursday that his family had become used to “illusions and disillusions,” and that they had known that the exhumation could have been a further waste of time. “Still,” he said, “I was surprised that there was nothing at all.”

Mr. Orlandi said he had called on the Vatican to investigate after receiving several tips from people working in the Vatican, though none of them were there at the time of his sister’s disappearance.

He said that he had been “positively surprised” by the Vatican’s assistance. “For the first time in 36 years, the Vatican has concretely done something important” in the case, he said.

Opening the tomb “signals a change of position,” he said, noting that when he met Pope Francis in 2013, the pope told him that his sister was “in heaven” and left it at that.

Mr. Orlandi said the Vatican’s overture had been important, because after decades of denying any links with the case, there was “an admission that there is a possibility of internal responsibility.”

But he said the missing princesses — even the sarcophagus in Princess Charlotte’s tomb was empty — posed a new dilemma for the Vatican. “Now, even the heirs don’t know where they’ve gone,” he said. “I think this is a problem for the Vatican that will have to be justified.”

Giant jellyfish spotted off Cornwall coast

Divers have swum with a huge barrel jellyfish off the coast of Cornwall.


Lizzie Daly, a biologist with Wild Ocean Week, said the creature was as big as her body.

It is the largest species of jellyfish which is found in British waters, with the average diameter being about 40cm (16 inches).

Hawaiian Elders Arrested as Standoff Continues Over a Telescope Slated for a Sacred Mountain
By Jennifer Sinco Kelleher and Caleb Jones / AP 2:19 AM EDT
https://time.com/5629162/hawaii-mauna-kea-telescope-protest/

(HONOLULU) — Thousands of protesters have joined a swelling effort to stop construction of a telescope they have long tried to keep off a mountain considered sacred to some Native Hawaiians, but state officials doubled down Wednesday on their commitment to ensure the project will be completed.

After a day of growing crowds and arrests of elderly demonstrators, Hawaii Gov. David Ige signed an emergency proclamation giving law enforcement more options to end the blockade.

The state hadn’t decided whether to remove protesters from the mountain, but the proclamation makes that an option, Ige said.

“We are certainly committed to ensuring the project has access to the construction site,” Ige said. “We’ve been patient in trying to allow the protesters to express their feelings about the project.”

About 2,000 people packed the base of Mauna Kea after the arrests, Hawaii County Managing Director Wil Okabe said. That’s more than three times the number of protesters who had showed up in previous days.

Police in riot gear temporarily lined the road to the top of the Big Island mountain, which is valued by astronomers for its consistently clear weather and minimal light pollution and the site for the $1.4 billion Thirty Meter Telescope, expected to be one of the world’s most advanced.

Protest leader Kealoha Pisciotta told The Associated Press that police took away about 30 elders who were prepared to be arrested as they blocked the road.

“They’re taking our kupuna,” Pisciotta said, using the Hawaiian word for elders, and sobbing. Around her, people sang “Hawaii Aloha,” a Hawaiian song that’s common at events.

Some of the elders being arrested used canes and strollers to walk, while others were taken in wheelchairs to police vans. Those who could walk on their own were led away with their hands in zip ties.

State spokesman Dan Dennison 33 people were arrested, given citations and released.

Walter Ritte, one of the protesters arrested, said he was driven down the mountain and later went back to the base of Mauna Kea but didn’t plan to block the road again Wednesday.

“But tomorrow is another day, and we’re free to do whatever we want tomorrow,” Ritte said.

Native Hawaiian protesters and other opponents of the Thirty Meter Telescope say they are concerned that construction will desecrate and damage the mountain.

The project has been delayed by years of legal battles and demonstrations. Last year, the Hawaii Supreme Court ruled that telescope officials had legally obtained a permit, clearing the way for construction to begin.

But protesters are still fighting at the mountain and in court, filing a lawsuit last week that said the project must post a security bond equivalent to the construction contract cost before starting to build.

Telescope officials said the challenge has no merit and is another delay tactic.

Some Native Hawaiians say they don’t believe the project will desecrate Mauna Kea. Most of the cultural practices on the mountain take place away from the summit, said Annette Reyes, a Native Hawaiian from the Big Island.

“It’s going to be out of sight, out of mind,” she said.

Authorities closed the road to the mountain Monday to allow construction to begin, attracting hundreds of protesters who formed their own roadblocks.

The blockade forced astronomers to stop operating 13 existing telescopes on the mountain Tuesday. Dozens of researchers from around the globe won’t be able to gather data and study the sky.

Observations won’t resume until staffers have consistent access to the summit, a move that is needed to ensure their safety, said Jessica Dempsey, deputy director of the East Asian Observatory, one of the existing telescopes.

“Our science time is precious, but in this case, our priority is just to make sure all of our staff is safe,” Dempsey said.
