The New Zealand National Party leader, Dr. Don Brash says that they only want immigrants who accept the “bedrock values” of New Zealand society. Brash said to the Association for Migration and Investment: “New Zealand should not welcome those who want to live here but reject core aspects of the country’s culture.”

Dr. Brash says that the following are the “bedrock values”:

  • Acceptance of democracy,
  • The rule of law,
  • Religious and personal freedom,
  • Legal equality of the sexes,
  • Speak English, or learn it quickly.

“If you don’t accept these fundamentals then New Zealand isn’t the place for you. Many migrants to New Zealand in recent times have come from cultures that do not share the same ‘bedrock values’,” said Brash.

David Cunliffe, Immigration Minister, said: “The National Party leader’s comments are pejorative and insulting.”

Canada: The One: Making a Music Star was cancelled today, just over a week after its debut. Overall it aired only four episodes.

ABC’s (American Broadcasting Company) show site for The One says, “There are no plans for additional episodes. Thanks to all who participated in and supported The One!”

According to an interview with the host over the phone from Hollywood on CFRB 1010 Toronto; George Stroumboulopoulos said that “he was not surprised because he thought maybe that the show’s message didn’t come across making viewers not understanding the show.” “He also said that he is happy that he is still hosting CBC News: The Hour.” Stroumboulopoulos has said, however, that he was only taking The One as a “summer job,” and does not plan to stop hosting The Hour.

CBC is now considering a Canadian version of the show.

“It’s too early to tell,” said Kirstine Layfield, CBC’s executive director of network programming. “We’re not under any pressure to make immediate decisions.”

Layfield said a decision would be made in a few weeks.

If CBC goes ahead, it would launch its own Canadian version of the show this fall.

“The Canadian version of The One is still in early development,” Layfield said, adding that the CBC has learned from the American version. “We’ll use that when we take a look at what we’re going to be doing with the Canadian version.”

The One only got 236,000 Canadians viewers for its debut episode, and pulled in 938,000 total viewers. It drew 3.2 million U.S. viewers and finished fifth in its time slot. [1] According to Nielsen Media Research, 150,000 Canadians tuned in Tuesday nights show. [2]

This is the first and, so far the only version of the Operación Triunfo / Star Academy format to not be completed before the end of the series. Since ABC and Endemol were running a contest with a prize of a recording contract someone will eventually be declared “the One.” Just how a winner will be declared is still being discussed. [3]

Floyd Landis on the Tour de France, July 23 2006.

On Monday, the result of a counter-analysis of Floyd Landis’ B-sample, as requested by the Americans, will be announced.

Landis, who came in first on this year’s Tour de France, has previously tested positive for an abnormally high testosterone balance in his blood stream. This led to claims that he was involved with doping, in order to improve performance.

According to Patrick Lefévère, the president of the Association of professional cycling teams, “Our sport’s survival is at stake”…”We can no longer afford to have teams or riders who just won’t learn still starting races.”

Landis continues to deny any wrongdoing.

“I want the result to be made public immediately, I see no reason why not,” Landis said. “I’m proud that I won the Tour because I was the strongest guy there”

Blog about Liverpool city council causes stir

Blog about Liverpool city council causes stir

A Blog entitled Liverpool Evil Cabal and supposedly written by insiders of the Liverpool City Council, going by the nom de guerre ‘Tony Parrish’, is causing a stir in the English city of Liverpool.

The Blog is apparently blocked by the council to prevent staff from reading it during office hours. The council has also extended the block to its public access terminals in places such as libraries, affecting the Internet access of residents of Liverpool.

Liverpool City Council has often been described as a Bear pit for its volatile nature and has been anxious to throw off the image generated in the early 1980s by Militant Tendency and Derek Hatton.

Ancient prayer book found in Irish bog

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 5:00 am

Friday, July 28, 2006

An early medieval Christian Psalter (prayer book) was discovered in a bog in the Midland Region of Ireland on July 25, 2006, prompting some to term it the Irish version of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The psalter was found by a worker excavating peat from the bog. The worker immediately covered the book with damp soil, as exposure to dry air after so many centuries of dampness might have destroyed it. He was praised by Dr. Patrick Wallace, director of the National Museum of Ireland, for doing that. The book was found open to the page of Psalm 83.

The Psalter is currently kept under refrigeration at the National Museum while researchers determine how to open the book without damaging the book’s pages and possibly destroying it.
