Do Auckland's proposals for managing cats go far enough?

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 09:44:00 +1200

Auckland Council is reviewing its Pest Management Strategy, including a period of public consultation, which has just closed. One of the sticky issues, as regards cats, is the lack of a clear demarcation of what is a 'pest cat' and what is someone's 'pet cat'. Dr Imogen Bassett is the Biosecurity Principal Advisor at Auckland council. The University of Auckland's Dr Margaret Stanley specialises in urban ecology and has been investigating the impact domestic of cats on biodiversity.

Expedition hopes to find Shackleton's Endurance

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 08:51:00 +1200

A British-led scientific expedition is hoping to find arguably the most famous ship in Antarctic history - Ernest Shackleton's Endurance. The Endurance sank in 1915 after being trapped and then crushed by ice in the Weddell Sea. The crew escaped in lifeboats and were eventually all rescued after Shackleton and five men made an epic 1300km voyage to South Georgia in a 6-metre open boat to raise the alarm. Next summer's expedition will be led by Professor Julian Dowdeswell, the director of the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge.

Native tree extinctions feared as myrtle rust spreads

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 08:44:00 +1200

Areas of New Zealand may see localised extinctions of native trees as myrtle rust continues to spread. It's been just over a year since the invasive plant pathogen was detected in New Zealand. It first turned up on Kermadec pohutukawa on subtropical Raoul Island. A short time later it was found in nurseries in Northland and Taranaki. Since then it's been found at more than 580 sites - and that number grows daily. Alison Ballance reports on the spread, and the possible long-term effect, of myrtle rust in New Zealand.

'The Church is not honest' about priest celibacy - former monk

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 08:26:00 +1200

An expert on celibacy is predicting a long battle in New Zealand for the Catholic church to face up to the issue of priests secretly fathering children. Several New Zealanders have for the first time contacted an international online support network to say a priest is their father, and an Auckland woman recently won acknowledgement of her case by her Bishop. Richard Sipe is a former Benedictine monk and sociologist whose research into the criminal sexual activity of Catholic clergy helped underpin scores of US lawsuits against the Church. He spoke with RNZ's Phil Pennington.

Morocco's charm offensive to protect phosphate sale to NZ

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 08:22:00 +1200

Moroccan authorities have mounted a charm offensive in New Zealand to protect their vital phosphate trade with this country. Opponents of the trade say Morocco runs an illegal military occupation of phosphate-rich Western Sahara and New Zealand should not be buying products from there. A four member Moroccan team has held a series of meetings here, arguing the incorporation of Western Sahara into Morocco is a benign process that actually helps the territory.

Huge drop in youth crime rates, improvement still needed - Sio

New figures reveal a big drop in youth offending rates, with offending by young people aged between 14 and 16 dropping 63 per cent since 2010. But the degree of improvement has not been as significant for all groups, particularly Maori and Pasifika youth. Aupito William Sio is the Associate Minister of Justice.

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 08:10:00 +1200

US President Donald Trump says his new foreign policy chief has forged a "good relationship" with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in a secret meeting last week. The CIA director and nominee for Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo met Mr Kim in Pyongyang, the highest-level contact between the United States and North Korea since 2000. Mr Trump tweeted the meeting went smoothly and denuclearisation would be good for the world including North Korea. Mr Trump is expected to hold a summit with Mr Kim by June.

Waitangi Tribunal slams Crown over Whakatōhea deal

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 07:54:00 +1200

The Crown has again been accused of rushing to finalise Treaty settlements at the expense of giving iwi a fair hearing. In a decision released this week, the Waitangi Tribunal found the Crown breached the Treaty of Waitangi by negotiating a $100 million deal with a group that didn't have the backing of the whole iwi. As our Te Manu Korihi reporter Te Aniwa Hurihanganui explains, it's not the first time.

Raul Castro to be succeeded by technocrat in Cuba

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 07:46:00 +1200

For the first time since Cuba's revolution in 1959, the country is set to be led by someone who is not a Castro. Fidel Castro was in charge for 32 years until his brother Raul took over as president in 2008. Now the 86-year-old Raul Castro is standing down and despite some predictions, there won't be a Castro family dynasty. Alina Balseiro announced to the Cuban parliament that the sole candidate to succeed President Castro is the 57-year-old Vice President, Miguel Diaz Canel. Miami's director of the Cuban Studies Institute, Professor Jaime Suchlicki, explains the implications.

An Auckland company may be caught up in an international money laundering controversy after it was identified helping to manage a network of New Zealand-registered companies and trusts for its clients.
