Sidney Bruhl is a playwright who has run out of success. His faithful wife Myra is supportive and tells him it is just a phase, but is her belief in him misguided? Sidney tries to persuade his reluctant wife to plagiarise the work of playwright Clifford Anderson who has sent him a script for comment. Helga Ten Dorp is a psychic who foretells of ominous happenings and untimely gruesome deaths. But is she away with the fairies?

Political, party donations.

Political is in the title so you can choose to ignore!
Monetary donations to political parties are subject to rules. Depending who you are and where you come from they range from $50 to $30000. Most of that money would likely be used for advertising and like we see in USA wealthy politicians have advantages! I find it strange that a major radio and TV outlet in New Zealand is totally owned by an American company (see Wikipedia) with unrestricted freedom. Both TV3 and so called Radio Magic broadcast an incessant tirade of abuse denigrating our Prime Minister and government. They are primarily a political platform, American owned, and with mischievous support for a National government. It makes a mockery of any rules regarding donations. Such support would be worth millions if it had to be paid for by any political party. I will resist comment on the quality of the dialogue used on air. The value of daily repetition cleverly inflicted on a gullible public, and with 96% coverage, should however not be under estimated. Funny old world!

The Political Football

David from Glen Eden

We're in a good place just now, but can it last? Covid-19 is rampant worldwide. We have made mistakes and New Zealanders from infected countries are flooding in, many at our cost. Some even refuse testing. Is that lunacy or is that lunacy?

We're in a good place just now, but can it last? Covid-19 is rampant worldwide. We have made mistakes and New Zealanders from infected countries are flooding in, many at our cost. Some even refuse testing. Is that lunacy or is that lunacy?
Does anyone have an answer. NO. Not even Mr Muller. The opposition is using covid-19 as a political football. They don't have any really better answers, only criticism. Mr Muller says we can't continue to keep people out, we'll be on our knees. But he has also criticised government for letting people in. I must say. with present repatriation from badly infected countries we will be lucky to escape another wave. When / if that happens you'll have something to complain about.
There are selfish people around, even mischievous, everyone needs to be aware. At this point in time NZ is in receipt of word wide acclaim. Is it too much to ask that ALL political parties contribute to our continued success rather than just try to win an election with hind sight criticism. It won't work, we are not all stupid.

Parental leave entitlements for new and expecting parents will increase from tomorrow-- 1 July

The Government will bump up paid parental leave as legislative changes take effect from tomorrow. It is timely that employers update policies and procedures so that staff are aware of their new entitlements.
More paid parental leave
====================
From July 1, the paid parental leave period will increase from 22 weeks to 26 weeks. Eligible expecting employees will be entitled to 26 weeks' paid parental leave to care for babies due or born from 1 July 2020. Primary carers such as adoptive parents are entitled to 26 week's paid parental leave for children under the age of six placed in their care from 1 July 2020. More paid parental leave will support working families with new borns and young children by reducing financial stress and increasing time for bonding and breastfeeding.
More 'keeping in touch days'
=======================
'Keeping in touch days' allow employees to work limited hours for their employer, while receiving their paid parental leave entitlements from the Government. From 1 July 2020, keeping in touch days will increase from 52 to 64 hours. Employees on parental leave will be able to work up to 64 hours without losing their entitlement to paid parental leave. This change will help support workers stay in contact with their employer for longer while receiving paid parental leave. Employees can attend team days, training, and perform other work during keeping in touch days. The change to parental leave provisions will be welcomed by new and expecting Kiwi parents.
Employees are more likely to take 6 months' parental leave that is paid, giving employers greater certainty about the length of time to replace the role. Many Kiwi employers face the challenge of finding cover for staff on parental leave. Employers may find it easier to replace the employee for a period of 26 weeks than 22 weeks.
Research suggests fewer primary carers return to the workforce following a longer parental leave. However, employers can attract staff back to work through effective policies like flexible working arrangements. Offering flexible working arrangements and attractive return to work policies has proven successful for Vodafone. The digital services employer tops up parental leave payments to an employee's full salary for 22 weeks. Vodafone's phased return to work policy has proven popular with staff returning from parental leave. For their first six months after returning to work, staff are only required to work 30 hours per week but are paid full salary based on 40 hours per week. Since this policy has been in place, 97% of Vodafone employees have returned to work following a period of parental leave. While paid parental leave is fully tax-payer funded, employers should check how legislative changes affect additional entitlements under workplace policies.

Last day at 50km/h: Auckland CBD speed limits to drop from tomorrow--- June 30

Brian from New Lynn

On June 30, almost all 50km/h streets in the CBD - including the likes of Karangahape Rd, Symonds St and Quay St - will fall to 30km/h. Fanshawe St, Hobson St and Nelson St drop to 40km/h, while Federal St and Elliott St, which are shared with pedestrians, will be 10km/h. An interactive map … View moreOn June 30, almost all 50km/h streets in the CBD - including the likes of Karangahape Rd, Symonds St and Quay St - will fall to 30km/h. Fanshawe St, Hobson St and Nelson St drop to 40km/h, while Federal St and Elliott St, which are shared with pedestrians, will be 10km/h. An interactive map released earlier this month shows almost every major road in the CBD will see speed limits drop as part of Auckland Transport's (AT's) Safe Speeds programme. While road safety advocacy organisation Brake NZ supports the lower speed limits, it wants them introduced more frequently beyond the confines of the city too. "We would like to see this rolled out much more widely in the future," the charity's director Caroline Perry told. "[We want lower limits] in a lot of our communities, suburban centres, around schools and childcare centres - all those areas that global best practice tell us we should have those low 30km/h speed limits for the best chances of safety and saving lives in those areas."
Many rural roads in the Rodney and Franklin districts will see reductions, while changes will also be made to limits on about 100 other roads across the Auckland region on Tuesday. But it's in the inner city that speed limit changes will be most pronounced, with almost every single major road to be affected. "We support these lower speed limits… the World Health Organization says where people on foot and bike are mixing with motorised traffic, it should be 30km/h limits or less," Perry said. "It makes sure if the worst happens, and you're involved in a crash with someone who's a pedestrian or a cyclist, they have the best chance of survival. The reduction in speed makes a big difference." In 2016, Christchurch City Council implemented a 30km/h zone of its own in its CBD. The impacts were notable - a 36 percent reduction in crashes resulting in injury in the two years to March 2018, compared to the two-year period prior. Perry says while the safety impacts are obvious, it's also made the inner city "more liveable and more accessible in terms of people feeling safe to go out and walk and cycle". "That's what we really want in our urban centres," she said. In 2018, 54 people died on Auckland's roads and 595 others were left with serious injuries. AT says it wants to see that number drop to zero by 2050.
