Mirror magic: boosting solar

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 12:50:00 +1300

From a few panels on your rooftop to the giant solar farms spreading around the globe, cheaper solar tech has been boosting demand for this type of renewable energy throughout the world. In the US a new 30 percent tariff on imported panels, imposed by the Trump administration last month, is focussing attention back on a decidedly analogue way to do more with less. The good old mirror- or 'booster reflector' to give it its technical name!- could be poised for a bit of a renaissance, according to Joshua Pearce, who is a Professor of Engineering at the Michigan Technological University.

High Fliers

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 21:30:00 +1300

Country Life heads to the top of Mount Murchison for the 2018 Hang Gliding Nationals. Over a week, 60 competitors race to various locations from the scenic Tasman peak. The gliders can reach 9000 feet and travel for up to 120 kilometres in a day. Pilot safety is top priority and organisers say injuries are most likely to happen during take-off and landing. Competitors who don't make it to the race destinations need to find a paddock to land in.

We ask the panelists what they think. What the panelists Mark Knoff-Thomas and Stephanie Rodgers want to talk about. A Sumner man is regreting he oredered branches to be cut from a Norfolk pine tree near a building he owns, after people labelled it "eco-terrorism". The man says he had no idea the tree was protected and was only worried the bracnhes were too close to power lines. But there has been outrage over the trimming as the branches will now not grow back. The city council is considering whether there will be any action over the incident. We ask the panelists what they think. There are calls for more transparency for buyers purchasing cars from dealers, after multiple cases involving cars imported after being declared write-offs in Australia. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has confirmed it'll be reviewing regulations this year. We ask Craig Pomare, chief executive of the MTA, whether this is a common occurrence and what potential buyers can do to protect themselves. Auckland Council will spend $200,000 on a dumping hotline, hoping to catch those people who are dumping rubbish illegally on the side of city streets.

One of the pirates involved in the murder of Sir Peter Blake has been captured after 15 years on the run. He was arrested in Brazil during a routine stop. Sir Peter Blake was the world's most famous yachtsman at the time and his violent death by pirates on the Amazon was an international story. We ask the panelists if this latest arrest brings justice to his family and to the many kiwis affected by his death. America's latest school shooting has ignited the discussion about gun use and ownership however there are many facts that seem to circulating that are incorrect or at least, exaggerated. Overall there are still a high number of shootings throughout the country but there are suggestions that has declined over the years. There's a lot of debate around gun control, which has been raging for some 50 years. We ask International Law expert Al Gillespie why there is so much confusion and if gun violence is decreasing in the US. A family's day at Abel Tasman was interrupted by a drone, which followed the group as they walked along the beach. The Department of Conservation says concessions must be obtained when flying drones around national parks, and it's unlikely one would be granted for recreational use at Abel Tasman.
