As she gave them three forms of ID, she said she saw an image on a phone they had been looking at that appeared to be of a Māori woman wearing a cap.

Ffs.

It’s such mealy mouthed nonsense.

They can’t “put it right” vis a vis that woman, and they have no intention of actually putting it right for others by ending the weird face misrecognition trial.

Sorty if this is a dumb question but does the Privacy Commissioner have power to stop it?

Cat flaps are psychologically bad for cats.

Also keeping them in overnight means way less catfights/vet bills.

That said I love those image recognition catflaps they yield some hilarious picturs, especially the lightbox/silhouette method.

If you’re tired of feijoas you’re tired of life.

Yay, this will stop me having to click around so much when I miss a few days and am wondering what you’re all up to.

The animal psychologist that convinced me put it like this: how would you like it if there was a door into your house you couldn’t lock and violent people could randomly come in, day or night.

Even the ones that are chip controlled, cats themselves don’t know and will engage in catdoor guarding behaviour.

If your cat is young and likes the odd fight it’s probably okay though.

It’s not different from nature. Neither are predation, parasites and diseases.

Stationary single point food sources would be rare but if there was one, resource guarding and physical competition would be normal as well, as would behaviours such as marking territory with urine.

Data from the US (where they have predators like coyotes) always give cats in the wild a 2-5 year lifespan.

I think the figures are better here, but cats in their natural state still have much harder lives than most pet cats.

Personally, if I have a pet my aim is to give it a long happy life, but I know mileage varies and everyone draws the line wherever they feel comfortable. I’ve mostly been lucky enough to have windows I can leave open for cats during the day.

Feijoa jam time.

Pear and banana. There’s something about brown skinned pears with feijoa that just works.

I don’t know much about them. I get the impression they’re big in Australia, probably because of snakes etc.

To be honest even though it’s better for bird life, I’ve never kept a cat inside all day. My last cat was super old for a really long time though, and didn’t get up to anything much on her own except dozing in the sun or peeing under a particular tree.

Is it the guy in this article? Maybe you could talk to the prison staff, see if they have a contact for him.

Also try a facebook group for Whanganui news or buy sell swap or whatever their local community uses.

Silly conspiracy theory: Big Pseudoephidrine wants sick kids to go to school to spread the cold virus.

Oh geez, I didn’t realize how deranged this plan was. No wonder that principal from HoraHora school (which does fantastic things) was acting so angry.

This makes no sense - he wants to fine the families.

It’s really weird how he talks about how important the years of education are while simultaneously moving to make kids hungrier and undervaccinated.

Yes we need a robust system.

I was fretting before about this govt just undoing stuff without any policy direction of their own, but now we’re beginning to see the policy directions I take that back.

The Northern Boys was quite the rabbit hole for me, SindhuWorld, Norman Pain’s solo stuff, etc. Very cool.

Ah so that’s what happened to the cheap St Georges Bay Rd hostels (City Garden and Lantana Lodge) ! They must have all been converted into de facto SRO housing by MSD and that’s why they no longer operate as travel accommodation.

Some of those rooms were tiny and the place was a labyrinth, and it was dodgy before it had a captive population - must have been a complete hellhole as an always-at-capacity social housing facility.

And yes does sound like another arson. Really lucky nobody lost their lives in this one.

liv,

It’s actually not amazing, given what they are.

Overseas SROs are often linked with fires, partly because they tend to be old hotels/motels with old wiring and have owners who don’t care much about safety, and I think partly because they attract crime.

Various cities have had to pass ordinances about them for this reason.

Nail polish remover and cotton wool or something similarly fibre-filled, like an old towel.

Only other thing I can think of is moisturiser. Like, hand cream and then use a green scrubbing thingy.

The fact the US military probably pollute in other ways isn’t really that relevant to the direct effects of Israel’s war in Gaza though.

Here’s a quick example of the kind of things people are looking at (this estimate doesn’t look at things like forever chemicals and rebuild costs so it’s quite a low estimate):

The vast majority (over 99%) of the 281,000 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2 equivalent) estimated to have been generated in the first 60 days following the 7 October Hamas attack can be attributed to Israel’s aerial bombardment and ground invasion of Gaza, according to a first-of-its-kind analysis by researchers in the UK and US.

According to the study, which is based on only a handful of carbon-intensive activities and is therefore probably a significant underestimate, the climate cost of the first 60 days of Israel’s military response was equivalent to burning at least 150,000 tonnes of coal.

The analysis, which is yet to be peer reviewed, includes CO2 from aircraft missions, tanks and fuel from other vehicles, as well as emissions generated by making and exploding the bombs, artillery and rockets. It does not include other planet-warming gases such as methane.

Maybe you should make yourself a Neocities page, that’s like pre-social media internet…
