    Demand for puppies during lockdown and beyond has seen an explosion of backyard breeders, not all of them good. That's according to industry association Dogs NZ. SPCA inspectors seized a number of designer dogs, reportedly more than 20, after executing a search warrant at Christchurch property yesterday. It follows one of the largest prosecutions in the SPCA's history last month; two German Shepherd breeders have been banned from owning animals for a decade. Dogs NZ director Steven Thompson talks to Lisa Owen.

    So the National Party conference was held over the past weekend in Christchurch. Things went well until late on Sunday night when planes started being cancelled and MPs and party members went mumbling off into the wet cold winters' night in search of a bed. The conference was organised and dull which is just what a party wants. An action filled conference is not the sign of a settled party. But they seem settled on Luxon and Willis and so the game continues with a policy thrown out to keep the party in public discussion. Maybe I've just been in the game too long, but I could have guessed it would be some sort of benefit policy that says something along the line of kids don't want to work, benefits are a lifestyle and the Ministry of Social Development are useless. Which is exactly what they said. I've heard these plans so many times in so many guises. I wonder where this army of competent community advisors are going to come from in a time of skilled staff shortages, and I wonder about the cost of bureaucracy to monitor the spending of taxpayers dollars by NGOs and third party providers. But that's the National way. In an election year, tax cuts and benefit bashing are their bedrock. But here's a thing. Is National really promising tax cuts? ACT finally called their potential coalition partner out this weekend pointing out that National is not planning tax cuts at all but just shifting the brackets. Their release says tax bracket indexation is just Labour's tax policy adjusted for inflation. Therefore it's not a tax cut. It's tax tinkering that effectively freezes Labour tax policy in time. Which, of course, it is. Always has been. Brackets haven't moved under three administrations now, both National and Labour. That's nearly a decade of increased tax revenue year on year. That's nearly a decade of people being placed into higher tax brackets than they can afford. It really is a rort. It's not the rich getting richer that bothers me. It's the policies from both parties that see the poor getting poorer that makes our country impoverished.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Amy Carter joins Purposely Podcast to share her founder story launching The Christchurch Foundation. Amy understands what it's like to lead in a time of crisis. Amy shares the issues she dealt with and the emotions she experienced along the way. However, moments of doubt, sleepless nights did not knock her enthusiasm, she maintained her focus and sense of purpose to see her through the tough times. In 2011, Amy was a business owner when disaster struck. The Christchurch earthquake killed 185 people and permanently changed the physical and social landscape of the city she lived in. It affected her view on philanthropy and shaped her focus on what the city needed. This eventually led her to set up the Christchurch Foundation in 2017. The foundation went on to play an instrumental role in raising $13 million to respond to the 2019 terrorist attack on two Mosques that killed 51 people. The worst terrorist atrocity ever in New Zealand and with hundreds of lives changed forever The Christchurch Foundation was under immense pressure to get it right. To facilitate the right kind of response that was ‘led by the victim's needs' and helping people both in the immediate aftermath and to this day and beyond. Amy has also been at the centre of a media storm that criticised her salary and took issue with elements of the charity and how it has operated. Criticism that Amy points as unfair and based on a lack of understanding of the community foundation model and the role they play in facilitating and encouraging place-based giving. One of the most respected philanthropy leaders in New Zealand, Amy is bold in her approach, and is not afraid to disrupt the status quo and tread her own path. Her new focus is to tap into the generosity of Cantabrians (a term used to describe people from the Canterbury region of NZ) living abroad with the launch of a UK based entity. This move was about building on their core focus to make it easier for people to give to the causes within Christchurch that they care about whether they live locally or not. They are a donor-led organisation rather than cause-led. That means that they act on behalf of the generous person or business who wants to give, matching them to causes that share their ethics, values, and desired outcomes. They are one of 17 community foundations in New Zealand with a total endowment of over $200 million focused on doing good both today and in the future. Amy's career has seen her working or volunteering for some of New Zealand's iconic charitable organisations including Surf Life Saving New Zealand, Swimming New Zealand, Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust, and St John. She has always been heavily involved in the Canterbury community and has sat on boards at University of Canterbury Students Association, The Canterbury Employers Chamber of Commerce and Sumner Lifeboat. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/mark-longbottom2/message

    Is any job better than no job? The National Party seems to think so - announcing yesterday that, if it becomes government, there'll be no more young people lying around on the unemployment benefit playing video games all day. “The free ride is over” - that was the warning shot fired from the luxurious surroundings of Christchurch's new Te Pae Convention Centre, to young people in Aranui, Linwood, Spreydon, Otara….in fact, anywhere in New Zealand where there is a young person currently receiving the unemployment benefit. Or jobseeker benefit, as it's known these days. And when I saw the coverage on TV last night, I thought I was back in the 80s. Especially pre-'87 when it seemed anyone who had a spare bit of cash was starting up or joining a shares club and there were yuppies left, right and centre who seemed to be making money out of nothing. It turned out they were making money out of nothing and it all came crashing down but, before it did, if you weren't in a share club or if you weren't a yuppie you were what we here in New Zealand referred to at the time as a dole bludger. If you were on a benefit, it was because you couldn't be bothered working and all you needed was a good kick up the backside and sent out to do an honest day's work. Because it never did us any harm! That was back in the 80s. But fast-forward to yesterday, and the National Party seems to think the same solution is needed. The gist of its policy is that anyone under-25 who's been on the jobseeker benefit for more than three months, would get what's being called a “job coach” to essentially do whatever is needed to get them into a job. And then when you get a job - if you stick at it for 12 months, you get a $1,000 bonus from the taxpayer. But if you don't go along with the plan laid out by the “job coach”, then there would be what the National Party is calling “sanctions”. Even the word “sanctions” reeks of Margaret Thatcher doesn't it? This morning, party leader Christopher Luxon told Mike Hosking on Newstalk ZB that these sanctions would start with state-control of beneficiaries' spending and then eventually their unemployment benefit would be out the window if they didn't tow the line and get a job. Now I think this policy is a disaster. It will sound good but, in my view, it will achieve nothing. It's all big stick with a little bit of carrot. It's the sort of thing that is very easy to trot out - but making it happen is a completely different story. For starters, does the National Party have any idea why some or all of these young people aren't working? Doesn't it understand that some of them come from really good families who have done all the right things - who aren't “the no-hoper parents” people like to rant on about - but despite all that, life just throws some cruel things at these young people. Things like mental health issues. But also self-esteem and confidence problems. Kids who, especially over the past two-to-three years, have spent so much time in isolation that the idea of going out terrifies them. I know young people right now - some of them I've known since they were babies - who are really struggling at the moment. And what does National think will help them? Telling them that the free ride is over and they need to get a job. Is this really still the answer in 2022? Are we really going back to the days of calling everyone who doesn't have a job a “dole bludger”? Another reason why I think it won't work, is that National seems to have completely forgotten - or ignored - what would actually have to happen to make it work. Where would all these “job coaches” come from? What would the Ministry of Social Development have to stop doing, so it could implement this new policy? What would the consequences be of cutting someone's unemployment benefit just because they don't get a job? More crime anyone? I was talking to a 75-year-old woman on Saturday night who is still working. She started working when she was 16 and she's at the point now where she thinks it's time to wind things up. I'd never met her before and I don't know alot about her but it sounded to me like she and her husband had done pretty well for themselves, but they had obviously worked very hard to get there. Now she could easily be very critical of “the current generation” and be of the view that if she managed to work hard and keep working, then anyone could. But she wasn't, and even she acknowledged that life is so much more complicated for young people today. And I'm picking that, like me, she won't be falling for this cheap talk from the National PartySee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, 2C26 Transfiguration (Year C) Baptisms 11:00 a.m. Eucharist Sunday 7 August 2022 Exodus 34:29-35 Psalm 99:5-9 2 Peter 1:13-21 Luke 9:28-36 “[B]e attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts” (2 Peter 1). When we were first becoming friends I did not talk much about my old life. Before joining you I served at Christ Church, Los Altos for fourteen years. From inside, that church building looks like a jewel box. It has four massive walls of stained glass. Each 12 x 34 ft. window depicts a different season of the year. The stained glass alone weighs 19,000 pounds. As the first person to arrive there every summer morning I remember the silence and the overwhelming feeling of God's presence in the light. Gabriel Loire (1904-1996), the artist who created those windows also made the Grace Cathedral Human Endeavor windows which honor Thurgood Marshall, Albert Einstein, Jane Addams, John Glenn and others. We have other Loire windows in the transept clerestory and the north quire aisle. But what I really want you to notice today is the rose window that Gabriel Loire also made. It is dedicated to the patron saint of our city, St. Francis, and to the poem attributed to him called the “Canticle of the Sun” (1224-5), the oldest known poem in colloquial Italian. This is the largest rose window in the far western United States. It is 25 feet in diameter and has 3,800 pieces of glass. Every morning, light from the sunrise filters through it. Every night we illuminate it from inside so that the city can see its beauty and be reminded of God. In summary, I have spent pretty much every day for twenty-one years experiencing the beauty and love of God through Gabriel Loire windows. Then a month ago for the first time we visited the workshops where all of them were fashioned. We set out from Chartres Cathedral on one of the most beautiful walks of my life past clay tennis courts and ancient sycamore trees, past a viaduct along a river which wound through green meadows. Without an appointment we walked up the driveway to the Loire studios and a man in white coat like a lab technician asked to help. It turned out to be Bruno Loire, Gabriel Loire's grandson. He asked us to wait in the gardens and then totally rearranged his schedule so that he could show us everything. We visited four different studios where they make the glass. We saw a secret project for fashion week. Bruno drove us to a nearby church to see the glass there. We had afternoon tea with Gabriel Loire's widow. Bruno showed us how he makes the kind of stained glass in our windows. With a mallet he shattered a piece of blue glass and handed it to me as a gift. Still sharp, it cut my thumb. I kept trying to hide the fact that I was bleeding. And here it is. I want you to imagine that this piece of glass is your truest self, your soul if you will. It is beautiful. It is utterly unique. Perhaps you find it easy to see this holiness and distinctiveness in children. As we get older people have a harder time seeing this beauty in us but it is still there. Whoever you are as you listen to my voice, I want you to know this: that like this piece of glass, you are beautiful. The musician James Taylor speaks about his first twenty-one years in an autobiographical audiobook (called Break Shot). For a while at the end of his teenage years he was a psychiatric patient at Maclean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts at the same time my grandfather was a chaplain there. I sometimes wonder if they met. James Taylor talks about being a jealous agnostic. He wants to believe, in part because he sees that if we live only for ourselves, if we only serve our own ego, this selfishness can be a dangerous trap. He sees the power of being in community of caring for other people and the world. Today we celebrate baptisms together, the sacrament by which God adopts us as children. It is the way that we become members of the church. It is how we become one with Christ, experience forgiveness of our sins and have new life in the Holy Spirit. If each of us is like this beautiful fragment of glass. Baptism is the reminder that we are even more beautiful together. Baptism is like having your beautiful fragment of glass included in a vastly larger window. That window is the church and it tells the story of what God did in the past and shows us what God is doing now. In the dark night of the world this light can give other people heart. This brings me to a difficult topic. We along with 85 million other people are part of the global Anglican communion, the third largest Christian body in the world. This week the bishops of all these churches met together in England. On Friday a group calling itself the Global South Fellowship of Anglicans published a statement. In it they declare that a gathering of churches which cannot agree about same sex marriages cannot be in communion with each other. Although these bishops have no authority over us here in North America, these are very alarming words, especially as we worry about the forces that seem to be undermining our nation's commitment to marriage equality. At Grace Cathedral we believe that every person without exception is deeply loved by God. This is true of LGBTQ+ people. It is true of same sex couples. We will not stop marrying these couples who come here seeking God's blessing. We see the Holy Spirit at work in their lives. Let me close with that poem of praise from the thirteenth century that I mentioned earlier as the inspiration for our window, Francis' “Canticle of the Sun.” “Praised be my Lord God, with all creatures, and specially our brother the sun, who brings us the day and who brings us the light; fair is he, and he shines with a very great splendor. O Lord, he signifies to us thee! // Praised be my Lord for our sister the moon, and for the stars… which he has set clear and lovely in heaven.” “Praised be my Lord, for our brother the wind, and for air and clouds, calms and all weather, by which thou upholdest life in all creatures. // Praised be my Lord for our sister water, who is very serviceable to us, and humble and precious and clean.” “Praised be my Lord for our brother fire, through whom thou givest light in the darkness; and he is bright and pleasant, and very mighty and strong. // Praise be my lord for our mother the earth, … which doth sustain us and keep us, and bringest forth divers fruits, and flowers of many colors, and grass… Praise be my Lord for all those who pardon one another for love's sake… blessed are they who peacefully shall endure, for thou, O Most High, wilt give them a crown.” The face of Moses shone after he had been talking to God. When Jesus spoke to God on the mountain, Luke says that, “the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white” (Lk. 9). You too are God's beloved child. You too shine with the glory of God's majesty. There are 3,800 pieces of glass in our rose window that is about the same as the number of people who worship here at Christmas. We are beautiful together. And the light of God shines through us.

    It was destined to be sold off by the Christchurch city council - but a last minute change of heart means the heritage-listed Rolleston House is to be converted into a community arts venue. It's getting a new name too, Toi Auaha. When the council considered getting rid of the over 100-year-old building, local artists lobbied to keep it. They worked with the council's Principal Arts Advisor Kiri Jarden, who heads the city's ambitious Arts Strategy Toi Otautahi. Rolleston House was built in the late 1890s, and for most of its life it's been used as a hostel. But Kiri Jarden tells Lynn Freeman that the building's been empty since the Youth Hostel Association closed its doors in 2019. It had been due to be sold off before its last-minute reprieve.

    Employment relations specialist Sylvia Wood has been elected National Party president at the party's conference in Christchurch. Wood takes over from Peter Goodfellow, whose 13 years in the job make him the party's longest-serving president. Wood has over 25 years' experience in human resources and employment relations. National leader Christopher Luxon said he was "delighted" to announce Wood had been elected "unanimously" by the party's board. National Party delegates elect their board, and the board elects the president. Wood said it was a "great privilege" to be elected president. "Thank you to all our members for the support, passion and commitment to our party," she said. Wood paid tribute to Goodfellow for his passion and commitment. "I welcome your support and knowledge for the work we have ahead of us," Wood said. "In January this year, the board set the strategic direction for the party: a total focus on winning in 2023." She said the party needed unity in caucus, good data, and sufficient funds to win in 2023. Wood also said the party needed a relentless focus on the party vote - not just electorates. "An absolute, obsessive focus on the party vote, because that is what we need to win," she said. - by Thomas Coughlan, NZ HeraldSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Mark Graham: Counter-protest planned, police in talks with Brian Tamaki-led Freedoms & Rights Coalition

    A counter-protest supporting democracy is planned to go head-to-head with a rally led by Brian Tamaki's Freedoms & Rights Coalition in Auckland this weekend. Counter protest organiser Mark Graham said it was a spur of the moment decision to show up and "save the nation's democracy". "The coalition and Brian Tamaki are not calling for freedom and rights, they want things to be done the way they want. That's just selfish. "He is throwing a tantrum because he is not getting what he wants. This is not democratic." Graham said their group was building in numbers since last night's decision to head to Auckland Domain on Saturday. "It is an important issue for us. We do not like what the coalition is doing, it is just not right. "We hope more people will show up to save our nation's democracy." Police have confirmed they are in talks with organisers of this weekend's anti-Government protest in and around Auckland Domain, which organisers threaten will be "impactive". A police spokesperson said they were discussing potential routes and plans with the group. "Police recognise the lawful right to protest. We also recognise the rights of the public to go about their lawful business. "We will monitor and respond to the situation accordingly to ensure public safety and to make sure any disruption to the public is kept to a minimum." A call has been made on social media for people who oppose the anti-government sentiments to gather as a counter-protest, with some saying they would block motorway entrances to prevent any attempt by demonstrators to disrupt traffic. The rights coalition stormed the Southern Motorway last month. The group, led by Destiny Church's Brian Tamaki, are calling Saturday morning's protest a "Kiwi Patriots Day and March". The group revealed it was also planning a major demonstration at Parliament grounds in a few weeks Details of this weekend's march route have not yet been shared with the public. It has said it would not be the same as the previous protest but would be "impactive". Newmarket Business Association chief executive Mark Knoff-Thomas said it hoped the protesters would respect the business owners' right to trade. "The last one caused major disruptions to our trade. We saw an immediate impact as Newmarket was cut off from the public so shoppers could not come in. "Saturday's our busiest day and in these times we need all the business we can get." Bishop Brian Tamaki led group plans to host a 'Kiwi Patriots Day and March' at Auckland Domain on Saturday morning. Photo / Brett Phibbs Auckland Council says it has concerns about potential health risks posed by the event and protestors desecrating consecrated ground around the area of the Cenotaph and Court of Honour. Director of customer and community services Dr Claudia Wyss said the proposed activity could result in "damage to the Domain, interruption of public enjoyment, prevent access to the Auckland Museum, and disrupt scheduled sporting activities". And given the high level of Covid-19 in the community, there were health risks. "It is important to note that the proposed activities require prior approval from the council, and that an application for the relevant event permit and other associated trading permits has not yet been received. "Events and activities held in a public place without prior approval can result in enforcement action." The council had written to the organisers making their position clear, Wyss said. "We are in touch with the police and will support them in any action they deem necessary on the day to prevent a breach of the law or damage to public property." The group claims the upcoming march will be an "opportunity to unite freedom fighters across the North Island and rally the public for the coming events ahead". A similar demonstration is also planned for Christchurch the following weekend. Police yesterday said they were still making inquiries about the last month's protest, and no charges had been laid. - Akula Sharma, NZ HeraldSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    I am excited to connect with Dr. Lara Briden today! She is one of my favorite naturopathic doctors and the author of the bestselling books Period Repair Manual and Hormone Repair Manual. She has 25 years of experience in women's health, and she currently has consulting rooms in Christchurch, New Zealand, where she treats women with PCOS, PMS, endometriosis, perimenopause, and many other hormone- and period-related health problems. Dr. Briden is a wealth of information! She brings a fresh perspective and a positive voice to the health and wellness space, and I often recommend her book, Hormone Repair Manual, to my clients and patients.  Today, she and I dive into her background as an evolutionary biologist and discuss how she became passionate about supporting women and advocating for them throughout their lifetime. We talk about perspectives on aging, what the second puberty (perimenopause) is, and the impact of histamine, mass-cell granulation, and estrogen. We discuss fat redistribution in middle age and the loss of insulin sensitivity. We speak about how using alcohol impacts brain health, sleep, the gut microbiome, appetite, cravings, and hinders estrogen metabolism. We also touch on ways to address dysfunctional uterine bleeding in middle age and explain how to advocate for your health, how middle-age impacts the nervous system, and the role of inflammatory foods, including dairy.  I hope you enjoy our discussion as much as I did! Stay tuned for more! IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN: Dr. Briden talks about her background as an evolutionary biologist and how she changed her career and became an advocate for women's health. Many women fear the process of aging. Dr. Briden and I talk about women's mindsets and their perspectives on aging.  Why is there so little awareness about perimenopause? Dr. Briden defines menopause and discusses the timeframe in which some women experience perimenopause symptoms. How can ongoing hormonal fluctuations during perimenopause, or second puberty, increase the likelihood of women having issues with a histamine response? Dr. Briden talks about fat redistribution in middle age and explains why women need to stay on top of it from a metabolic perspective. How can our modern-day lifestyle make the metabolic shift women experience in menopause even more challenging? Dr. Briden talks about natural treatments and hormone therapies to lighten the flow of the extremely heavy periods that some women experience during perimenopause. Dr. Briden discusses the connection between cow dairy and an inflammatory reaction in some people. Women need to understand what happens in their bodies when they have either a partial or a full hysterectomy. Dr. Briden talks about estrogen and brain health. How does alcohol affect the body? What are the best options with the fewest side effects for hormone therapy for women?
