Maria Bradshaw: NZ Government’s Approach To Suicide Prevention Increases Incidence

Maria Bradshaw

VinnyEastwoodShow Maria Bradshaw is a mother who lost her only child, Toran to suicide in March 2008. He passed away at 17-years of age and Maria holds the mental health system responsible. Following his death, Maria undertook two years of research and has amassed a large amount of evidence which shows that the New Zealand government’s approach to suicide prevention actually increases, rather than decreases the incidence of suicides.

In August, 2010 she established CASPER (Community Action on Suicide Prevention Education & Research), a group which brings together families bereaved by suicide whose aim is to effect change in legislation, policy and practice in suicide prevention in NZ. Since its launch 5 minths ago, CASPER has 435 members from 20 countries around the world and has achieved some significant change including persuading the Chief Coroner that open reporting of suicide is beneficial rather than harmful.

In a must-hear interview, she recently spoke to Vinny Eastwood and Will Ryan of the Vinny Eastwood show about New Zealand’s appalling suicide rate and what she has learnt since Toran committed suicide.

90-Year-Old NZ Activist: The Causes Of ADD & ADHD – Why Ritalin Is Not The Solution

For over 25 years, 90-year-old former special needs teacher Betty Hooper collected evidence relating to the treatment of children diagnosed with ADD, (Attention Deficit Disorder) and ADHD, (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder).  In this 11.23 minute long video, which was filmed at the Whangarei Public Library on February the 1st and 2nd, she talks about some of what she has learnt and offers advice on how to treat hyperactivity.

Mrs Hooper is an independent researcher and not affiliated with any group.

She is well qualified to talk about this topic, as she says she is old enough to have witnessed a deterioration of children’s behavior over the decades.  In addition,  she self-funded a research trip to Cuba in late-2005, in order to compare the diets and behaviors there, with those in New Zealand.

Penny Bright: Does The NZ Prime Minister Personally Profit From NZ’s Indebtedness?

31 January 2011

By Penny Bright, Auckland.

Hi folks!

Had a VERY productive night at the ASB Lunar Festival 2011 ‘Year of the Rabbit’ celebration at the Telstra Pacific Events Centre in Manukau City, Saturday 29 January 2011.

What a forced, faded, ‘shonky’ smile I got from Prime Minister John Key, when we made eye contact from about three feet away, as he did the ‘mix & mingle – meet the people bit’  following the Lion dance opening event!

Is this because he has yet to reply to my Official Information Act request of 26 January 2011, where I have asked him;

“Can you please uphold the principles of ‘open, transparent and democratically accountable’ government, and provide the following information:

1) On a line-by-line accounting basis, provide the detailed information which shows EXACTLY to whom New Zealand has become indebted, since the National/ACT Government came to power in November 2008.

2) In particular, the information which confirms since the National/ACT Government came to power in November 2008, whether or not New Zealand has become indebted to the Bank of America, any subsidiaries of the Bank of America, or any lending institutions of any form, which have any connections to the Bank of America.”

(The reason why I have asked about the Bank of America, is because Prime Minister John Key has declared a pecuniary interest as a shareholder in the Bank of America in the latest ‘Register of Pecuniary Interests of Members of Parliament, as follows:
http://www.parliament.nz/en-NZ/MPP/MPs/FinInterests/8/c/3/00CLOOCMPPFinInterests20101-Register-of-Pecuniary-Interests-of-Members.htm

‘Register of Pecuniary Interests of Members of Parliament:

Summary of annual returns as at 31 January 2010

Pg 36

Hon John Key (National, Helensville)
Interests (such as shares and bonds) in companies and business entities.

Bank of America – banking  “

Is is NZ Prime Minister John Key personally profiting from NZ’s growing indebtedness?

It’s a fair question – isn’t it?

It appears that a growing number of concerned citizens are interested in his reply………

GM crops breed economic dependence, new form of slavery, says cardinal

By Carol Glatz
Catholic News Service 

VATICAN CITY (CNS) — If farmers in Africa had greater access to fertile, arable land safe from armed conflict and pollutants, they would not need genetically modified crops to produce food, said the head of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.

Making growers reliant on proprietary, genetically modified seeds smacks of “the usual game of economic dependence,” which in turn, “stands out like a new form of slavery,” said Cardinal Peter Turkson.

Waitara Tap Water Treated With An Ionizer Yields Surprising Results

Hi Clare (FYI)

This photo was taken about 6 hours after connecting the charger leads to the electrodes 2 days ago.

This is our Waitara tap water after passing through a 0.5 micron charcoal filter. Both compartments were filled with the same water and what you see in the left tank is what came out of the right (and of course what was in the left tank).

The residue has to be removed with a nylon brush and citrus detergent. After seeing this I am not planning  to drink any more untreated tap water, (ever).

Note: Unfiltered tap water produces the same dark colour (not charcoal from the filter), whereas unfiltered natural spring water produces a whitish brown colour.

New Documentary From John Pilger – The War You Don’t See

From the award-winning director of The War on Democracy comes John Pilger’s latest work, The War You Don’t See. This hard-hitting exposé scrutinises the effects of the media during wartime, asking what is the role of the media in rapacious wars.

When symbols are separated from facts and the facts don’t matter, could the media be accused of conspiring to play down the carnage and of using ‘embedded journalism’ to amplify the lies? This documentary unveils the war you don’t see and allows you to make up your own mind.
