    I'm seriously surprised that no-one makes a million a minute yet! Bill Gates, where are you and why are you not making more money? More about A million dollar minute

  • Law Abiding Citizen

    I'm particularly looking forward to seeing this; partly because I absolutely love Gerald Butler (hot bod, hot acting) and partly because you can come in halfway through the movie and still manage to be entertained.

  • Paranormal Activity

    Last post: Ella on 14.03.11 at 01:46 | Started by Ella on 06.10.09

    I have to say - this is probably New Zealand's best horror film, and best underdog story really (considering it was never meant to be as big as it has become!). The fact that it became a hit in the United States soon after it was first screened to audiences shows how popular this film is. I'm dying to see what all the fuss is about, and see if it really can make me scared enough to sleep with the light on (which is what some of my friends were caught doing after watching it).

  • Holidays: Exhausting or Refreshing?

    Last post: Ella on 14.03.11 at 01:46 | Started by R on 21.04.08

    Take advantage of the holiday season, and spend quality time with your kids and family. Children look forward to this time of the year in particular, and will always remember it when they are older. Set traditions from an early age, as these can be passed from generation to generation. Appreciate the time you have, and remember that you can have an amazing time with your partner and kids, if you just try to enjoy all the frivolities. More about Holidays: Exhausting or Refreshing?

  • Financial Tremors

    I completely agree with the editor's comment regarding privitising profits and socialising losses - bailout schemes such as the one that is bailing out South Canterbury Finance saves those who had money in the company, but at what cost to the wider public? Is it really the responsibility of the average Joe taxpayer to make up for the losses of investors? I think not. They knew the risk upon investing in the business (for all investments, regardless of the size and company, contain at least SOME risk), and while I feel extremely sympathetic for them, I do not believe that it should be a loss that taxpayers should bear or contribute towards. It was not the decision of the taxpayers to invest in SCF.

    With regard to salaries in the public sector, I think that they are always going to be higher than the average salaries in the private sector. There's no good reason for it - but I have a feeling it will always be that way. I don't think they'd take too kindly to a paycut!

    Overall, New Zealand is a young country, with a lot to learn. As a country, we maintain a naive attitude and expect handouts and bailouts a lot of the time, when it would not be expected overseas.

    Oh, and, in response to your question: Yes, I think the public service is too big for the size of our country! More about Financial Tremors

  • Fishhooks on the foreshore

    Last post: Ella on 14.03.11 at 01:46 | Started by Kieran on 08.09.10

    I agree with Samala - why do we have to divide everything into Maori or Pakeha this and that? I'm proud to be from a mixed heritage family - both Maori and Pakeha, and I'm honestly sick of all the nonsense. What our ancestors did was important, but it's history and should be remembered but not used to punish or take advantage. Put simply, we are New Zealanders - every one of us. It shouldn't matter what our blood line says, because that one thing should mean that we are all treated the same. More about Fishhooks on the foreshore

  • How to Reclaim Your Attention

    Last post: Ella on 14.03.11 at 01:46 | Started by DawnBreaker on 24.06.10

    I love this! I definitely waste too much time on unnecessary things and need to limit my attention to what is really essential. Easy to say, hard in practice, but I like the way this articles puts everything into simple, easy-to-understand instructions - will definitely be trying to implement these in my life, especially the "give your attention to the important" one!
