Just 17 months in and Willis & Bond property developers have raised the rents on the former Horowhenua DC pensioner flats

PLEASE NOTE, THIS POST WAS REMOVED FROM FACEBOOK BECAUSE IT VIOLATES COMMUNITY STANDARDS, I KID YOU NOT. EWR.

Willis & Bond with front company Compassion Housing raised tenants’ rents in July 2019 by $15 per week. These are the flats that were all but gifted to the property developers Willis &Bond, a sale that so many Horowhenua people vigorously opposed. At the time of the sale at a fire sale price the public were told the then current contracts with tenants would remain the same. Those were set to end however within 12 years.

Other changes introduced since the takeover have been the banning of cats for pensioners. Once pets that tenants currently own die, they are not allowed to obtain another. Since pets for the elderly are known to be very therapeutic. one is left wondering, what ever are Willis & Bond thinking?

Here in NZ we have entered a new era in terms of housing. We currently have 43K+ homeless and climbing, they are building hospices for the aged (hospices used to be for the terminally ill), your corporation that parades as a government is pondering on euthanasia, our state homes continue to disappear from availability as we speak (land banked, simply bulldozed as tenants tell me, or are sold to property developers) & Labour’s promise to replace them has been kicked a bit further down the road. Neo-lib economics. Profits are more important than people. Our forbears who worked hard to ensure all Kiwis were housed & fed would turn in their graves if they could see what is happening now.

Note: this situation in no way reflects on the staff of Compassion Housing or their quality of service as housing providers. They are doing their job as employees of the company they work for. However, when put up for sale by HDC it was promised the flats would go to a housing provider. They did not keep their promise, the flats were all but gifted to a property developer & many of us were not duped by the partnership that ensued.

AMERIKA: Democracy Is Now A Hindrance To The Imperial State – By Charles Hugh Smith

“…The corporate mass media is the PR machine for the Imperial State. If the state seeks to sell the public a war of choice, the media dutifully pounds the drums of war. If the Imperial State decides to disempower a president or other elected official, the media will hound the elected official until he/she is disgraced or buried, too busy fighting off the ceaseless media propaganda to function. The mass media excels at ruthlessly mocking political targets, reducing their stature in the public eye”

Democracy Is Now A Hindrance To The Imperial State – By Charles Hugh Smith

Democracy is the coat of paint applied for PR purposes to the Imperial State.

If we step back from the histrionics of impeachment and indeed, the past four years of political circus, we have to wonder if America’s democracy is little more than an elaborate simulation, a counterfeit…

Life Expectancy Falters in the UK: Slow Death but Fast Profits for the Agrochemical Sector

Counter Information

Global Research, June 26, 2019

A special report in the Observer newspaper in the UK on 23 June 2019 asked the question: Why is life expectancy faltering? The piece noted that for the first time in 100 years, Britons are dying earlier. The UK now has the worst health trends in Western Europe.

Aside from the figures for the elderly and the deprived, there has also been a worrying change in infant mortality rates. Since 2014, the rate has increased every year: the figure for 2017 is significantly higher than the one in 2014. To explain this increase in infant mortality, certain experts blame it on ‘austerity’, fewer midwives, an overstrained ambulance service, general deterioration of hospitals, greater poverty among pregnant women and cuts that mean there are fewer health visitors for patients in need.

While all these explanations may be valid, according to environmental campaigner Dr…

Bayer Shareholders: Put Health and Nature First and Stop Funding this Company!

Counter Information

Global Research, October 14, 2019

Campaigner and environmentalist Dr Rosemary Mason has just written an open letter to Bayer Crop Science shareholders and Chairman of the Board Werner Wenning. She has also sent them a 13,000-word report. Mason is appealing to shareholders to put human health and nature ahead of profit and to stop funding Bayer. In her report, she sets out why shareholders should take this course of action.

Mason outlines how the gradual onset of the global extinction of many species is largely the result of chemical-intensive industrial agriculture. For instance, she argues that Monsanto’s (now Bayer) glyphosate-based Roundup herbicide and Bayer’s clothianidin are largely responsible for the destruction of the Great Barrier Reef and that the use of glyphosate and neonicotinoid insecticides are wiping out wildlife species across the globe. Mason also argues that the science behind (chemical-dependent) GMOs is…

WHO & UNICEF recommend vitamin A be administered to children with measles

“Several recent investigations have indicated that vitamin A treatment of children with measles in developing countries has been associated with reductions in morbidity and mortality. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) issued a joint statement recommending that vitamin A be administered to all children diagnosed with measles in communities where vitamin A deficiency (serum vitamin A <10 µg/dL) is a recognized problem and where mortality related to measles is ≥1%. The recommended regimen is 100 000 IU by mouth at the time of diagnosis for infants younger than 12 months of age, and 200 000 IU for older children.”

Vitamin A Treatment of Measles

Let’s move on to vitamin A in the treatment of measles and the prevention of severe cases of measles. Lets start as well with some background on the lack of major media attention to this actually important issue of vitamin A in the treatment of measles. In fact vitamin A is much more important than the dangerous MMR vaccination. Vitamin C is also anti-viral. If you combined vitamin A with highly absorbable liposomic encapsulated vitamin C you could likely avoid any chance of getting severe measles and with any resulting complications. Then you as well will have immune system beneficial life time immunity. No vaccine can do that. See as well the vitamin C pages here on this site.

Revealed: The Australian companies manipulating our weather

From tottnews.com

For over five decades in Australia, the study of clouds, rain and the atmosphere has been largely hidden from the public, as a secretive network of government agencies and private business interests continue to manipulate the weather around us to their personal benefit.

OVERVIEW

Geoengineering, or weather manipulation, has now become commonly accepted as the deliberate intervention or large-scale manipulation of the climate system of Earth to counteract ‘global warming’ or to influence the environment.

Global climate is controlled by the amount of solar radiation received by Earth and also by the fate of this energy within the Earth system. That is, how much is absorbed by Earth’s surface and how much is reflected or reradiated back into space.

The reflectance of solar radiation is controlled by several mechanisms, including Earth’s surface albedo and cloud coverage and the presence in the atmosphere of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2).

To this notion, geoengineering aims to target these key areas, with two main underlying techniques responsible: direct carbon dioxide removal, such as cloud seeding, and solar radiation management that aims to cool the planet by reflecting more sunlight.

Methods

Geoengineering proposals were first developed in the middle of the 20th century. Relying on technologies developed during World War II, such proposals were designed to alter weather systems in order to obtain more favourable climate conditions on a regional scale.

Australia has been heavily involved in these processes since the beginning of advancements in technology, with major projects, documented experiments, legislative pieces and more, for over 50 years.

CSIRO: CREATING THE RAIN

One of the best-known techniques of geoengineering is cloud seeding, a process that attempts to bring rain to parched farmland by dispersing particles of silver iodide or solid carbon dioxide into rain-bearing clouds.

Cloud seeding may involve attempting to produce rain when none would normally fall or it may be working to increase precipitation over a particular area.

This theory began in Australia shortly following the world’s first laboratory trials, after new research papers published by USA researchers I Langmuir and V Schaefer stated that rain could be induced by seeding clouds with dry ice.

After a series of experiments in New York, the two researchers managed to make it rain using silver iodide bullets. They got a patent for their technique, referred to as ‘cloud seeding’, soon after.

As a result of the international study, cloud seeding was first trialed in Australia in 1947 when the CSIRO used Royal Australian Air Force aircrafts to drop dry ice into the tops of cumulus clouds.

According to CSIRO history, the method worked reliably with clouds that were very cold, producing rain that would not have otherwise fallen, leading to more subsequent trials.

The first documented date of this success was in 1947. Described by CSIRO:

“This is believed to be the first documented case anywhere in the world of an appreciable man-made rainfall reaching the ground and the first time that dynamic cloud growth had followed seeding.”

Climate Change, Junk Psychology and the NZ Herald

Sto Vounó

In September of this year a letter from scientists and professionals was delivered to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, entitled There is No Climate Emergency.  The letter points out that:

  • Natural as well as anthropogenic factors cause warming.
  • Warming is far slower than predicted.
  • Climate policy relies on inadequate models.
  • CO2 is plant food, the basis of all life on Earth.
  • Global warming has not increased natural disasters.
  • Climate policy must respect scientific and economic realities, and concludes.

Our advice to political leaders is that science should strive for a significantly better understanding of the climate system, while politics should focus on minimizing potential climate damage by prioritizing adaptation strategies based on proven and echnologies. (The letter is reproduced in full below.)

VOODOO ECONOMICS: Climate and the Money Trail – By F. William Engdahl

“…The very mega-corporations and mega-billionaires behind the globalization of the world economy over recent decades, whose pursuit of shareholder value and cost reduction who have wreaked so much damage to our environment…are the leading backers of the “grass roots” decarbonization movement from Sweden to Germany to the USA and beyond. Is it pangs of guilty conscience, or could it be a deeper agenda of the financialization of the very air we breathe?

There are more than 10,000 peer reviewed scientific publications that clearly outline the dangers of electromagnetic radiation of all kinds. The amount of radiation present in our environment does not at all compare to the radiation, and type of radiation that is emitted by natural sources. Computers, wifi, cell phone towers and more have severely increased the amount of electromagnetic radiation that human beings are surrounded with, and it’s quite clear that it does and is hazing and impact on human health and possibly a big…
