  Nicola Willis wants less school holidays for kids
Posted by: crispier taco - 29-01-2019, 12:49 PM - Forum: Unrealpolitik - Replies (15)

Nicola Willis Wrote:I think it's time to talk about whether a six-week school holiday makes sense in 2019. Should the summer break be shortened to five or even four weeks? This year I'll be working on a Private Member's Bill to get the conversation started.

In an article in The Herald, Nicola Willis has suggested that because it's expensive and time consuming to care for kids during the school holidays, we should have less school holidays for kids.

This may be a result of the changing attitudes and laws about how much supervision is appropriate for children (a lot more than before), but sending them to school because they're inconvenient seems a bit shit. Shouldn't we be talking about other options? Free community center projects that people can throw their kids at where they develop other skills or run around in the grass or something? Idk

thoughts?



ps: also she states that kids get dumber over the break which is I guess is pretty legit
Nicola Willis again Wrote:Research shows the "summer slide" in student achievement is real. Kids' literacy abilities can decline over the six-week break, with one study showing students losing months of progress over summer. Much of term one can be spent getting kids back to where they left off the following year. This is a real barrier to achievement.

  Member's Bills, arbitrarily rated
Posted by: crispier taco - 25-01-2019, 12:30 PM - Forum: Unrealpolitik - Replies (9)

Parliament Website Wrote:Members' bills are bills introduced by members who are not Ministers. Every second Wednesday the House gives precedence to local, private, and members' bills. On these days members' bills are debated.  

I bolded the "not ministers" bit, currently of our 120 members of parliament, there are 29 ministers (20 from Labour, 5 from New Zealand First, 4 from Greens). Accordingly we ought to have 91 non-minister members that can submit bills, however the website currently only lists 66 proposed bills. Not sure what the deal is there, but whatever.

This is one way that members that are either in opposition or not in a position of particular power within the coalition can voice something important to them.


I'm going to go through each proposed member's bill and talk about them and give them ratings out of 5.
Beware my own political bias will be a big part of this
I'll likely get bored of this before getting through all 66
please comment and validate all my wasted time

Rainbow CRISPR babies born last November
Posted by: crispier taco - 23-01-2019, 01:04 PM - Forum: Everything Else - Replies (2)

Nature News Wrote:A Chinese scientist claims to have helped make the world’s first genome-edited babies — twin girls, who were born this month. The announcement has provoked shock and outrage among scientists around the world.

He Jiankui, a genome-editing researcher at the Southern University of Science and Technology of China in Shenzhen, says that he impregnated a woman with embryos that had been edited to disable the genetic pathway HIV uses to infect cells.

[...]

Documents posted on China’s clinical-trial registry show that He used the popular CRISPR–Cas9 genome-editing tool to disable a gene called CCR5, which encodes a protein that allows HIV to enter a cell.
(full article here)

So near the end of last year the first real life X-men were born and their super power is to be immune from AIDS from some but not all HIV viruses (some don't enter by CCR5 but by CXCR4). Fun note: you can also prevent HIV replication by deletion of the NPC1 gene but that also causes horrific childhood-onset neurodegeneration

Although Chinese Scientists, Southern University, China, and the whole world everywhere has condemned this whole thing, it's open the conceptual doorway and it will happen again. In the next 10 years it will not surprise me if in some developed nations we CRISPR away things like Huntington's Disease and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Jami-Lee Ross Wrote:Leaving bitterness and hatred behind

The last time I actively took part in public debate, over three months ago, I found myself at the apex of a mental health crisis that became a life and death situation. My absence from Parliament and the media since then has understandably raised questions. I hope to now answer some of them.

I’ve been to hell and back. I almost lost everything, including my own life. I just can’t be driven by hatred anymore, or the pursuit of getting even with Simon Bridges, Paula Bennett or anyone else in the National Party. Life is too short for that. My time and energy needs to be focussed on doing everything I can for my family, my constituents and my country.

If I could go back in time, my biggest wish is that I could have spared Lucy from this painful experience. She never deserved any of this, and politics is always harder on those loved ones in the background, than on the MPs themselves.

I can’t spare Lucy that pain or take back any hurt I have caused. But what I can do is dedicate myself for however long I have left in public life to making those around me proud of the good work that I can, and will, do.

My plea to the 70,000 people living in my electorate is that I hope they are willing to judge me on the decade and a half I have spent serving Botany and the wider Howick area, and not that one challenging and confusing month where things fell apart for a while.

I am still the same person that has always worked hard for them, that has never been afraid to speak up for them, or knock on their door and front up to them face to face. The only difference is that my life has been laid bare for all to see now, and I happen to be a flawed human being.

Last year showed me that I need to be a better husband, I need to be a better boss, and I needed to be honest with myself about my own mental health struggles a lot earlier. I have been working really hard on these things in the past few months.

Had I known at the start of last year what I know now, all this could have been different. I was recognising in myself early in the year that things weren’t right. I wasn’t feeling myself. I was privately becoming emotional over things I wouldn’t normally have. And I was hiding how I was really feeling from everyone around me.

I should have been honest with myself and asked for help earlier. It wasn’t until another National MP sent me that now infamous text message telling me to kill myself that I finally cracked and I sought help from an old friend and counsellor that worked with me when I was a teenager. He quickly realised that I was in need of actual medical assistance, and so I was being treated by a psychiatrist for the later part of last year.

The normal rules of politics say I should do everything I can to hide my own health. But it’s no secret I eventually end up being sectioned to Middlemore Hospital’s acute mental health facility in October. We don’t always see positive stories of the country’s mental health services, but I can’t speak more highly of the people working there.

I am so thankful for the amazing individuals that save lives through our mental health system. I am also grateful for the dedicated men and women that work in our emergency services. They displayed to me the kindness of human nature at a very difficult time when I was so emotionally distressed that I had tried to harm myself.

I hope to add my voice to those trying to educate New Zealanders, particularly young people, that it isn’t weak to speak up about how you are feeling. I’ve learnt the hard way that it is okay to not feel well, it’s okay to ask for help, and that there is usually a huge amount of kindness and compassion out there in the community.

I don’t have hatred or animosity towards Simon or Paula anymore for the way they treated me. At the time they were doing all they knew how to do with the skill set they have.

But I still take responsibility, because it wasn’t fair on them. It wasn’t fair on Simon and Paula for them to be put in a position where they had to choose between helping someone with a health issue, or to put that person under more pressure because it was the better political move to make.

I do want to say thank you to the people that tried to help. I have subsequently learnt that at least two of the four women in the October 18 Newsroom story first spoke to the National Party leadership because they were concerned about my health and wellbeing. They identified that I was struggling and they were doing what they thought was the right thing. I want to thank them for caring.

Should the National Party’s response have been to send them out to talk to the media? Probably not, but people don’t always do very rational things in the heat of a political crisis when they are under pressure.

I have received a personal apology from one of the women that was sent to the media by Paula. I am grateful for her apology, but I more feel sorry for her that she was put through that traumatic experience. I can’t imagine how difficult it must have been for her to have her boss request she hand over all her personal text messages. Then to also be asked to talk about her personal life so National could “combat” me during that week – it can’t have been easy.

I also know the National MP that sent me that text message has been suffering a lot of personal pain and family heartache in the last year. She was once my best friend in the caucus – there must have been a lot of personal stress in her life for her to end up sending me a late night text message inciting me to commit suicide.

We shouldn’t have hurt and betrayed innocent parties in the way we did. I obviously wish she hadn’t given an anonymous interview to the media, but I know how hard it can be when the leadership is pressuring you in to doing something.

One of the things that I have been coming to terms with is the comments in the second Newsroom story from some of my ex staff members and how they were so unhappy working for me. That was so terrible to hear. Clearly I was not a good boss, but worse than that I didn’t even realise. I never knew they felt that way. I didn’t realise that my actions were creating such an unpleasant workplace. How terrible is that?

I thought I was a good boss and that I had mostly good relationships with my staff. That clearly wasn’t the case and reading about how I made some of them feel was gutting. I am so ashamed about this and I have been working with my psychiatrist to make sure that never happens again.

I wondered why Parliamentary Services never brought this to my attention at the time, so I asked – turns out it’s because they had never received any formal complaints about me and never had need to investigate me like they have other MPs. But even so, people that worked for me have obviously felt hurt by the working environment I created, and for that I am sorry.

I do want to say though – while I have been a bad boss and I must do a lot better in that area – I was led to believe by the leadership that there were allegations of sexual harassment. I have never sexually harassed anyone, and never had any complaints made about me of that nature.

I know people are naturally wondering how Simon and I went from close friends to political adversaries. It’s true, less than a year ago I was doing everything I could to help him achieve all his own personal goals. And I was proud to be doing so. Somewhere along the way our friendship sadly deteriorated.

Simon has had nearly a year as leader and he’s tried his best. You can’t blame him for trying. But I was in his leadership team and I was one of about half a dozen that saw the full polling we were doing each week – the detailed polling report that the rest of the Caucus isn’t allowed to see. It didn’t matter how much we tried to do, each week Simon’s personal favourability kept going backwards further and further.

This was frustrating. And I was feeling frustrated because when I was questioning Simon’s personal polling and what we could do about it, more and more I felt squeezed out of the inner circle. Some leaders welcome those that challenge them, others close up and listen to the voices they like the sound of. I wasn’t one of those voices.

My mistake was I took my feelings and started sharing them with other MPs. And this was viewed, probably rightly, as me being disloyal. And Simon treated my dissenting voice as something he felt he needed to jump on. And he jumped pretty hard.

So when you saw me go on medical leave in early October that was actually me being pushed out for the rest of the year for disloyalty. And this is where my mental health struggles and my disagreements with Simon started to converge pretty heavily.

A colleague that’s still in the caucus and leadership team rightly observed that if you back a wounded animal into a corner they’ll either curl up and wet themselves, or they will bite back as hard as they can.

I clearly wasn’t thinking straight at the time. I clearly wasn’t coping. And I was in a sort of hate fuelled daze. And so when I was put under immense pressure, with my whole personal and professional life threatened, I decided to bite back as hard as I could. These weren’t the actions of someone in a good state of mind. But it’s where we got to, and the whole country was watching.

I’m happy to put my hand up and say I should have reached out for help a lot earlier. Maybe we could have avoided that whole saga had I done that. We probably could have avoided the collateral damage too.

I feel so sorry for people like Maureen Pugh, who is nothing but a lovely person, who had to hear what Simon thought of her in a taped conversation. That wasn’t nice. And those incredible public servants like Chris Finlayson and David Carter – they shouldn’t have had to hear me and Simon discussing their careers so flagrantly. They all deserved better.

I’m also sorry for the hurt I caused the good, hard working, National MPs, most of whom were my friends. What normal person goes and hurts the people they are closest to? These people weren’t just colleagues – they were my political family. My friends. There are some great people in that caucus and they deserve to have the chance to be back in government one day.

I’m deeply sorry for my actions that have hurt people. And I have a lot of repairing to do. But I also know I was put under enormous pressure too. When that PWC report was released to the media, I had only been told of it about an hour earlier. I hadn’t had a chance to read it, to understand it, or to seek advice on it. To this day the full report with the QC’s opinion hasn’t been released to me.

I didn’t know at the time that Simon and Paula talked to the media (because I hadn’t read the report) that it never actually identified wrong doing on my part. It never identified me as having done anything. What it did was draw together communications, which were unrelated, and formed a view that should never have been able to be formed, as well as saying that the evidence was not conclusive.

After everything that’s happened I struggle to feel any animosity towards him anymore, but I do wish Simon would have given me the opportunity, like I pleaded for, to at least read the report and talk to the Caucus before it was released publicly. I reckon we could have avoided this whole situation had he not refused my request for natural justice. But that’s all history.

My focus now is on the future, and being positive. My health is considerably better and I am working on greater resilience. I am still the MP for Botany and I owe it to many people to do good for them. I also think it is important not to run away from this difficult time. As the highest profile New Zealander in recent years to have attempted suicide and survive I want to use the platform I have as an MP to do what I can to help other New Zealanders like me who have had a temporary breakdown but remain good people.

I also want to go back to being the type of representative I was earlier in my career, free from political party posturing, to just speak up for the people that voted for me.

I wish as a National MP we had done more to cut red tape and regulation to fix the housing crisis that means young people can’t afford to buy a home. We should have put more in to the country’s underfunded health services and public transport systems. And we should have realised that we let the Auckland Council get out of control and that’s costing Aucklanders more and more each year.

These are the type of issues I want to get back to speaking up for on behalf of my constituents. We spend too much time in Wellington fighting with each other over petty things when we should be focussed on what will improves lives and what helps a family’s back pocket.

But as well as returning to being the best MP I can be for my community, I also need to be a better husband and father. In those dark moments when I felt there was no hope and no way forward – when my world had crashed down around me so much that I found myself standing on train tracks thinking I had no option but to end everyone’s pain – it was the vivid picture in my head of three year old Charlotte’s little happy face that stopped me from actually going through with doing something dumb.

No amount of political point scoring is worth hurting other people, or crushing the happy face of my little girl. We all got in to politics to try to make the world a better place for the boys and girls of the future. In October we forgot that. And we let many people down.

I am reminded at this time of a famous Mandela quote from his time leaving prison on Robben Island: “as I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison.”

I am still the same person that has been proud to work hard for Howick and Botany for a decade and a half. But I can admit, last year, I didn’t get everything right. I am sorry. I will do better.

Jami-Lee Ross may now be emotionally/mentally stable now but acting like he thought he was a good boss and totally denying any sexual assault (only that he had an affair which was rude to his wife more than anything) means he's quite clearly still the lying shitbag that you grow out of a party run behind the scenes by the cast of Dirty Politics.

That he claims that half the women that went to Paula Bennett about him were actually concerned for him is either shocking self-delusion or a smug lie.

He plays up needing to be a better father, husband, boss and he is a cunt and I don't believe him. I 100% believe he had a daughter because it makes him look better as a politician.

Acts genuinely surprised that his employees felt pushed to the brink and hated working for him because he was an abusive and terrible boss (which is also crushingly ironic because he's casting himself as a victim of his superiors, and claiming them to be capricious and unfair).

Several times he talked about forgiving Simon Bridges, using the opportunity to insinuate Simon was the bad guy and Jami-Lee was an innocent victim of a leader lashing out, throwing all sorts of shade.

All in all, Jami-Lee Ross is total trash and although he has his mental health in check that doesn't alter the fact he is reprehensible trash and the only possible silver lining is that he will probably push a pro-mental health political agenda, but this comes at the cost of the protection of women in NZ from sexual impropriety from people in positions of power, and also the voice of workers under an abusive boss.

So apparently being a truck driver is a constant misery, punishingly long hours, debt traps and peeing in bottles.

Reckon this is because truck freighting is unaffordable or the freight companies are just assholes?

If it's just not affordable, what do we do? Should freight companies charge more for their service? Do we need trains or something?

  New Zealand Tax
Posted by: crispier taco - 22-01-2019, 11:57 AM - Forum: Unrealpolitik - No Replies

Oxfam research Wrote:The research revealed that New Zealand's two wealthiest men, Graeme Hart and Richard Chandler, increased their collective wealth by $1.1 billion between 2017 to 2018.

In that same period, the poorest 50 percent of New Zealanders saw their collective wealth decrease by $1.3b.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has recently caused a fair amount of outrage in suggesting that the income earned by American citizens over the $10 million threshold should be taxed at 70%.

While New Zealand is obviously quite different to the United States in regards to the extremely wealthy and welfare for the poors, our highest tax threshold is $70,000, for which the tax rate is 33%

Reckon we should have higher (marginal)tax thresholds for the very wealthy in NZ?

  2019 Spring Anime
Posted by: Oathy - 21-01-2019, 08:39 PM - Forum: Degenerates - Replies (2)

I had very low expectations coming into this season of anime as next season is super stacked (Attack on Titan S3P2, One Punch Man S2, Chihayafuru S3, even the Fruit Baskets remake) but I have been pleasently surprised by some of the shows airing this season. Heres a run down of 3 that I'm watching:

Tate no Yuusha no Nariagri (The Rising of the Shield Hero)
Airs Wednesday, MAL: https://myanimelist.net/anime/35790/Tate..._Nariagari
This is your typical e-sekai where the main protagonist is transported to another world (think Sword Art Online-ish) which has been done over and over. They seem to bring in some sort of twist each time they redo it and this one puts a real nice spin on it that I enjoy. The basis of it is four people gets transported to this game-like world and are called 'the heroes'. They each have different weapons (sword, spear, bow and shield). They are expected to save the fantasy world by defeating waves of enemies that come periodically, the only thing is the heroes are low level and need to grind monsters to level up. The main protagonist is the shield hero and is pretty much written off by everyone as useless because he can only defend and cant even wield a sword. He ends up getting fucked over big time, loses all of his money and respect from the city he is in (I wont spoil how) and ends up being pretty much driven by his rage and anger at everyone else. The first episode is 45 minutes and is pretty epic, if you watch it and dont like it then you wont like the whole series and also fuck you.

Yakusoku no Neverland (The Promised Neverland)
Airs Thursday, MAL: https://myanimelist.net/anime/37779/Yaku..._Neverland
This is a mystery/horror about kids in an orphanage who are looked after by one person, "Mama". Kids are aged between 5-12 and everyone is super happy, loving life and awaiting the day they will move out of the orphanage and into a real family. Each child has a weird barcode tattooed on their neck which is a little weird but I'll run with it. They do some weird tests everyday where a score is taken but doesn't really seem to mean anything. They get to play outside everyday where they usually play tag (foreshadow much?). The only thing is they are not allowed to go past a fence which surrounds the area of the orphanage. They are also not allowed to go near a big gate - the only way in and out of the orphanage. The protagonist is a 12 year old girl who is smart and very athletic. There are two other main boys, both super smart (all getting top scores on this test they do). The episode ends with one of the younger kids in the orphanage being adopted and taken through the main gate. The protagonist realises the person leaving has left her teddy bear behind, and rushes after her. She breaks the rules and goes past the gate to hopefully give the teddy bear back, only to find the girls dead body and some supernatural creatures talking with each other. Now its time to form a plan to escape.

Dororo
Airs Tuesday, MAL: https://myanimelist.net/anime/37520/Dororo
This one is set in feudal Japan where the leader of a town is sick of famine and no money so rather than praying to the gods for help, he prays for help from 48 demons. He tells them if he can rule the nation they can have anything of his that they want. A while later his wife has their first born son. As he is born lightning strikes the house. The baby is born without skin, eyes, ears or anything really. The leader is ecstatic because he knows the demons are listening and hes going to get what he wants. The baby is taken to the riverside to be killed, but instead is placed in a boat and sent down the river. 16 years passes and an unknown warrior who has prosthetic arms and legs and wears a mask is walking through towns. He also has swords for arms which is pretty fucking cool. The story follows this warrior as he defeats supernatural beings and I guess figure out where he came from? And revenge or something? I dunno its only 2 episodes in.

If you like the sound of any of these, give it a watch and let me know what you think. If you wanna watch it week by week I can post weekly discussion threads about all of the episodes.

Pretty sure that didn't come up at all right? He could've removed the Kim dynasty or Saddam Hussein or other contemporary world leaders and power players.

Which politicians would you purge?
The president of Gabon? Bolsonaro? Queen Lizzie II and all her heirs until Prince Louis of Cambridge is King?
