    • Wellington super city, like, could be totally super close
      • 5 Apr 2009
      • Salient
      • United Future MP Peter Dunne has called upon Wellington to become a ‘super city’, a recommendation similar to the one put forward to Auckland by the Royal Commission. “If there are reasons for Auckland to do this, then the reasons behind a Wellington ‘super city’ are even more compelling,” Mr. Dunne said. Dunne suggested that Wellington’s population of 472,000 was reason enough to amalgamate the capital’s nine local councils into one city council.

    • An Alternative History
      • 15 Mar 2009
      • Salient
      • For real, compadres. The site of the main Victoria campus was decided by a thousand-pound donation from a major shareholder in the Kelburn Tramway. The cable car opened in 1902, the Hunter Building in 1906, and students have been forking out or sweating it up the hill to class ever since. It could all have been so different. Salient presents… the Victoria University That Might Have Been.

    • Gender and Women’s Studies not down with Karori Kool
      • 8 Mar 2009
      • Salient
      • Victoria University of Wellington’s decision to relocate its department of Gender and Women’s Studies (GWS) to its Karori campus has created a myriad of logistical nightmares, claims a source from inside the department. The source, who wishes to remain anonymous, damned the decision to move the department in 2005, noting a lack of access to even the most basic of academic provisions.

      • A Special General Meeting (SGM) will be held in the Quad at Wednesday lunchtime for students to decide whether $12 million will be spent by the VUWSA Trust on the upcoming Campus Hub Redevelopment project. The Campus Hub project will transform the Quad as we currently know it, making it the “social heart” of the campus.

      • Ominous dark clouds are gathering over Wellington in the lead up to tommorows election! As the rain starts to pour down and the lightening crashes around the bowl that is Wellington, I look out from the Salient office and I contemplate tomorrows election. What fortunes await us on November 9? A Labour Green arrangement? An Act, National, United future arrangement? Both of them + the Maori Party?

      • Salient
      • Stethoscope: $200, Gloves: $200, Surgical equipment: $100,000. A patient not noticing you left a rag in their newly sewn up stomach… priceless. Wellington Hospital is becoming renowned for what Dr Liz Hesketh described as “unsafe clinical practice.” Several news media publications have followed what seems to be an increasing number of errors and staff resignations. Salient Feature Writer Jenna Powell looks at Wellington Hospital, the moral panic surrounding its practices, and what is being done to ensure the safety of all patients.

    • Ranfurly Shield returns after 27 years in provincial wilderness
      • 28 Sep 2008
      • Salient
      • After twenty-seven years of relatively mediocre tenures by lesser provincial unions, including North Harbour, the Ranfurly Shield, regarded by many to be this country’s premier rugby prize-piece, finally returned to the capital following Wellington’s rampant 27-0 defeat of Auckland last weekend. The Lions, touted as favourites by fans, the TAB and that guy who called up Radio Sport to bitch about Graham Henry but kinda got sidetracked, were positively ruthless in dispossessing the log of wood from the finely manicured fingers of its former holders.

    • Real. Hot. Bitches. Word!

      • The Real Hot Bitches are a Wellington dance troupe who get together once a week in Lyall Bay to dance to 80s music. But they’re also so, so, so much more. They wear lycra g-strings with gay abandon, they have a collective approach to choreography, they’ve broken the world record for the largest synchronized dance routine (2843 people danced to Bon Jovi’s ‘Shot through the Heart’ in February 2007).

      • On Monday 1 September Contact Energy lodged a resource consent application for its Waitahora wind farm with the Tararua District Council. As my father, sheep and beef farmer Shaun Currie, co-owns and manages Waewaepa Station, where part of the proposed wind farm is to be located, I am inherently biased. However, I have kept this report free of my comment and opinions, and

      • Every year hundreds of parents breathe a sigh of relief as their 18 year olds embark on the beginning of their future in the supposed safety of University Accommodation. Victoria University’s student accommodation has been renowned for dodgy foundations, mould, mushrooms, religious fanatics and several outbreaks of scabies.

    • Gang Land
      • 13 Jul 2008
      • Salient
      • Parts of Invercargill burn during a feud between the Mongrel Mob and Highway 61. The Mob carry out three brutal home invasions in Hawke’s Bay throughout June. And the trial of a dozen Mob members for the drive-by shooting of a Black Power member’s daughter in Wanganui continues. The mayors of Hastings, Wanganui and Invercargill have all said enough is enough, but Aotearoa’s gangs have been around for half a century and their numbers are growing. As more Victoria students move out of the gentrified and over-priced Kelburn and Te Aro areas, many of us will end up among the council flats and gang history of Newtown.

      • As many of you will know, the recent proposal to incorporate the film programme into a new school of ‘Visual Culture’ was defiantly routed. With some 108 proposals made to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, there was a clear indication that the proposal made little sense, both administratively and academically. To be frank, it reeked of bureaucratic wankery. (more…)

    • Hataitai Past 2021 Calendar

      • <figure data-test="image-block-v2-outer-wrapper" class=" sqs-block-image-figure image-block-outer-wrapper image-block-v2 design-layout-poster combination-animation-none individual-animation-none individual-text-animation-none image-position-left " data-scrolled > On Sunday 18 October, we launched our Hataitai Past 2021 Calendar. What a journey it has been! The process of creating the calendar started in March during Covid-19 Lockdown - not that we were bored! The idea came about as we felt that fundraising events were not going to happen for quite some time.  Quotes and samples from national printers were sourced, then onto the mammoth task of selecting photographs by committee approval.  So many great photos to choose from. We spent hours pouring over wonderful pieces of our community’s history. What a business!  We decided that our very own local Smith Print was the best designer and printer to use for the job.  What an amazing product they’ve delivered for us. The Wellington Libraries Recollect collection, and the Alexander Turnbull Library had wonderful photographs available - some at a small fee. Their librarians were very helpful. As was Russell Jenkins of the Wellington Tramway Museum.  What a wonderful Tram photograph they sourced for our cover page..  As Hataitai has a unique heritage, we have ensured that photos were included of the old Patent Slip, the Tram Tunnel and the Flying Boat, as well as a variety of others. You may not have known that there was a commercial Flying Boat service operating in Evans Bay from 1938 to 1954, where passengers boarded a small passenger terminal near Hataitai’s current changing rooms and flew to Sydney. The proceeds are going towards the Hataitai Community House. As with many small and nonprofit businesses, our income has been greatly impacted by Covid 19. If we achieve high sales we hope to also support the redevelopment of the Hataitai Centre (previously known as the Bowling Club)  We are now thrilled to be able to launch this wonderful calendar. It will make an excellent Christmas present for your family, at only $20 each, or 3 for $50. The calendar is sponsored by many local businesses and for that we are very grateful. We could not have done it without you. To order, please email hataitaievents@gmail.com, or you can pop into one of our stockists - Hataitai Pharmacy, Coolsville, Waitoa Social Club and the Hataitai Community House, at 112 Waipapa Road.  We will also be selling the calendar at our up and coming community markets.  Keep an eye on our Latest News for details.
