Tsunami warning sirens

found to be non-compliant

TSUNAMI WARNING sirens

have been found to be noncompliant

with the national

standard.

The sirens are tested regularly,

however, the noise they make

does not comply with the tone

set in the National Emergency

Agency’s Technical Standard that

was issued in 2014.

The city council has now

launched an investigation into

how the 45 sirens can be upgraded

along the coastline between Taylors

Mistake and Brooklands.

City council head of civil

defence emergency management

Rob Orchard said the sirens did

not comply with two components

of the technical standard, but it

was still an effective tool used

to warn people of an imminent

tsunami on the coast.

“The sirens though are only

one of the tools we would use if a

tsunami

was coming our way,” he said.

“If we get information that a

distant source tsunami generated

from across the Pacific Ocean or a

regional source tsunami generated

from the eastern North Island is

likely to hit our coastline, we will

use all available channels to get

that message out to the public.”

Desperate push to get Dekken pedalling

• By Bea Gooding

FOR MANY children, learning

to ride a bike is seen as a luxury,

but for six-year-old Dekken

McClintock, of Aranui, it’s a

matter of necessity.

Born with Prader-Willi

syndrome which causes weak

muscles, obsessive eating, and

slow development, the rare genetic

disorder has led to further

complications. Over a period of

time spinal deterioration has led

to him developing scoliosis.

His mother, Rachelle Mitchell,

is now on a desperate mission to

raise $10,000 towards the cost of

a specialised trike in order for

her son to build muscle strength

before it is too late.

She said because he was

diagnosed early, there was still

time for him to gain strength

before running the risk of being

wheelchair-bound and undergoing

further operations later in

life.

“Because he has a really low

muscle tone, he can’t sit on a

normal bike and balance as he

doesn’t have the core strength,”

said Mitchell.

“In my eyes, the trike isn’t a

luxury item, it’s a necessity. We

don’t have the luxury of being

able to go to The Warehouse or

Kmart to buy a $100 bike.”

The specialised trike by Trikes

NZ designed for disabled riders

has an upright seat with a back,

a harness and pedals at the front

rather than the sides.

Dekken would be able to use

the trike into adulthood because

the base had the ability to extend

as he got older, with the possibility

of converting it to electric in

the future.

“His legs will be outstretched,

and there’s something special on

the pedal that means he doesn’t

need to have power behind the

push as long as he can move

them. It doesn’t matter if he can’t

push strong,” she said.

“It will stop the scoliosis from

getting worse as he will get a

healthy blood flow through his

body and it will increase his cardio,

strengthening core muscles.

“If it gets worse he’ll end up

really hunched over making it

more difficult to walk than what

it already is.”

Dekken was born prematurely

at 34 weeks weighing only

1500gm after six weeks in neonatal

care.

He has had seven operations

since then, including a double

hip and femur surgery, and five

surgeries to rectify obstructive

sleep apnoea – a condition which

can cause breathing to stop during

sleep.

Said Mitchell: “He gets tired

really easily and struggles to

keep up with other kids his age.

Because he can’t regulate his

emotions, he gets frustrated at

not being able to do things like

everyone else.”

WE’RE STILL

HERE FOR YOU

CHRISTCHURCH.

100% LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED

Many of you living in the local community will have noticed that our office at Homebase, Marshland Road is no longer lived in by the team at House of Travel Shirley.

But never fear we have not closed down nor run away to the Bahama’s!! Instead, we have taken the opportunity to merge our store with the team at Merivale.

A change in the ownership of the Merivale store, plus our lease expiring presented an option to continue to support the greater communities around both stores, but under one roof.

In light of how our industry has been decimated by the covid-19 crisis it made perfect sense.

We are now located in Merivale Village, directly opposite the mall entrance. While the car parking is not as convenient as before there are still many car parks behind the mall plus a

myriad of lovely shops and cafes. So please come in and see us next time you are in the area. Our contact details have all remained the same, so we are just a phone call or email away.

We wanted to take this opportunity to give you an update on what is happening in our industry and how things will hopefully pan out in the future. We also wanted to outline what we

can do to help you with your travel arrangements and to encourage you to think about supporting local businesses whenever you can.

Covid-19 has certainly turned our lives upside down and I think we are all thankful we live in such a fantastic country and the way this virus has been contained is admirable and the

commitment all Kiwis have made has been unwavering.

But as we are from a small island at the bottom of the globe, we are passionate travellers, always looking at ways to explore and understand new cultures and continue to have

wonderful experiences abroad. So, we suspect many of you will be chomping at the bit to get away again!! So, please watch this space! We anticipate some of our Pacific Island

nations may open their borders to New Zealand tourists soon and then Australia should follow suit. Things will eventually get back to a “new normal”, however, there will likely be new

rules and regulations in place.

In the meantime, we are helping many of our clients see their own backyard and we have put together some amazing itineraries to get out and see this beautiful slice of paradise we

live in. Summer is coming so if you are keen to get away and explore our country please just get in touch with us. We urge you to give us a call instead of booking online – many of the

websites you will be familiar with (booking.com / Expedia.com etc) are big multi-national companies and do not help our economy in any way. While their prices may look appealing,

hand on heart we can normally do it for the same or even less.

We have a team of eight here at the combined store so thought it would be a great chance to introduce you to the team.

Our team are very experienced consultants and booking with a travel agent for your future holidays will ensure you get value for money, 24/7 support before, during and after your

trip, help with any queries over Covid and border restrictions, a real person’s advice and opinions plus at HOT we are TAANZ bonded which means your money is safe with us.

We look forward to welcoming you in store soon and please if you haven’t already joined, we’d love you to like our Facebook page. www.facebook.com/HouseOfTravelMerivaleShirley

Childhood centre gets defibrillator

THE CHANCES of surviving

cardiac arrest have been boosted

for the community surrounding

an Aranui early childhood

centre, with the installation of a

new defibrillator.

The automated external defibrillator

was gifted to Te Kotahitanga

Ki Waitaha Kohanga Reo

to support efforts by St John to

improve cardiac arrest survival

rates in New Zealand.

The life-saving device was

one of 28 gifted to organisations

across the country by ASB and

Phillips this month.

“We are very grateful for the

opportunity to have an AED

device on our premises,” head

teacher Poea Rangi said.

“This will benefit our whole

community with saving lives especially

our kaumatua and kuia

in our Haporī,” she said.

“Death from cardiac arrest is

our silent toll.”

Findings from a St John out

of hospital cardiac arrest report,

revealed that five people a day –

almost 2000 a year – are treated

by ambulance officers for a cardiac

arrest in the community.

The chance of survival can be

greatly improved with bystander

knowledge of CPR and use of an

AED.

People in low income and

rural areas were not only twice

as likely to suffer a cardiac arrest

but had considerably fewer

public AEDs available compared

to Europeans, Pacific Island and

Māori communities.

They also had a disproportionally

higher incidence of

out-of-hospital cardiac arrest

associated with risk factors such

as deprivation.

St John is going to great

lengths in communities around

the country to install AEDs in

public locations such as marae,

schools, businesses and sports

grounds.

They are also delivering the

“3 Steps for Life” programme,

to teach people how to perform

CPR and use an AED.

“Studies by St John have

revealed that every minute

that goes by without CPR or

defibrillation reduces the chance

of survival by 10 to 15 per cent.

Only about 13 per cent survive a

cardiac arrest,” St John right

care adviser Hauora Māori Michelle

Ormsby-Brett said.

“We know that this survival

rate can be doubled by people

taking three easy steps; calling

111 for an ambulance, starting

CPR immediately and using the

nearest AED.

“Having an AED accessible

at a community kohanga reo

where many people gather,

means lives can be saved.”

Investigation

siren upgrade

• From page 1

If you hear the tsunami sirens,

Orchard said to check if there is

an official tsunami warning for

your zone; either red, orange or

yellow.

“The warning is given on the

radio, television, social media or

through an Emergency Mobile

Alert to your phone. If there is

an announcement to evacuate

the zone you are in, follow the

instructions immediately,’’ he

said.

If a tsunami came from a

local source, there would not

be enough time to activate the

sirens.

“In that case, the best warning

sign is the earthquake itself,” said

Orchard.

“If you are near the coast

and you experience a strong

earthquake that is difficult to

stand up in, or lasts for a minute

or more, you should immediately

move to higher ground or as far

inland as possible.’’

Orchard said he is investigating

how the city’s sirens could be

upgraded so they comply with

NEMA’s Technical Standard.

He will bring a report back to

the sustainability and community

resilience committee.

Freedom camper restrictions

COMPLAINTS from the

community has lead to the

temporary closure of a popular

spot for freedom campers.

With the surf lifesaving season

getting under way, the city council

is closing the North Beach car

park to freedom campers at the

weekends.

There have been issues in the

past with camping activities taking

over the car park, preventing

access to the beach and the surf

lifesaving club.

In response to the complaints,

city council chief executive Dawn

Baxendale decided earlier this

year to close the car park to freedom

campers from 7pm Friday

to 7pm Sunday during the surf

lifesaving season.

The surf lifesaving season traditionally

started during Labour

Weekend.

“Freedom campers in certified,

self-contained vehicles can still

use the North Beach car park for

up to two nights during the week,

but over the weekends the car

park will be off-limits to them,’’

said city council head of strategic

policy Emma Davis.

“This summer we are expecting

to see more Kiwis exploring

our beautiful district. If you are

planning a camping holiday, or

have friends or family planning

one, please remember there are

restrictions on where you can

Akaroa and Banks Peninsula.

“If you plan on camping in a

tent or sleeping in a vehicle without

facilities, you need to stay

in a camping ground that has

facilities you can use. We have

some fantastic camping grounds

so there are plenty of options for

people to choose from.

“If you’re planning a campervan

holiday, you can freedom

camp in some areas provided

your campervan is certified,

self-contained with a toilet,

wastewater and rubbish facilities

on board. Please be aware that

camping in town centres and in

city council parks and reserves is

not allowed under our Freedom

Camping Bylaw.

“There’s a great map on our

website which shows you where

you can stay or you can use the

CamperMate app,’’ Ms Davis

says.

She said the bylaw was now

five-years-old and will be reviewed

over the coming months

to make sure it was still “working

as intended.”

Any proposed changes will be

subject to public consultation

new services offered at longestablished

podiatry clinic

For more than 25 years, Charlotte

Russell and her team at Feet First

Podiatry have been providing a full range

of professional podiatry services at their

Upper Riccarton clinic. Over that time,

they have continually kept abreast of

innovations in the profession ensuring

clients receive the most up-to-date

treatment for their feet.

Now, a new Podiatry Assistant has

joined the team. Trained and qualified

in Europe, Agata is providing general

podiatry services, including a new service

the clinic has introduced – Toenail

Reconstruction. A painless cosmetic

procedure, this restores the natural

appearance of nails that may have been

damaged through accident or have

become discoloured or unsightly due to

fungal infection. Lasting six to eight weeks,

the cosmetic nail allows a new, healthy nail

to grow underneath.

Full information on the procedure

can be seen on the Feet First Podiatry

website, www.feetfirst.co.nz.

Another new service being offered

at Feet First Podiatry is the Medi-Pedi,

(medical pedicure), which is a safe,

hygienic pedicure service carried out in

their clinic with sterile instruments.

Recently, there have been reports of

clients suffering from nail infections after

visiting nail bars for pedicures, which were

likely caused by the use of non-sterile

instruments and nail varnishes that had

been applied to multiple clients.

before

after

A toenail before and after Toenail

Reconstruction has been carried out.

The cosmetic nail has restored the

toenail’s natural appearance.

As Charlotte explains, in Christchurch

there are no by-laws governing nail bars,

so clients have no protection from any

unhygienic, unprofessional practices.

On the other hand, at Feet First Podiatry,

Charlotte and her team provide an

hygienically clean environment with health

and safety guidelines being followed and

all instruments sterilised by autoclave.

Clients are also invited to bring their own

nail varnish.

Located at 37 Main South Road, Feet

First Podiatry is open Monday to Friday

from 8.30am to 5pm, with late nights

on Tuesday and Thursday to 7pm by

appointment. Off-street parking is

available.

Feet First also runs several satellite

clinics. These are at the Marshland

Family Health Centre, Marshland Road

on Mondays, the Redcliffs Clinic, Augusta

Street, on Wednesday afternoons, and at

Darfield Pharmacy on alternate Fridays.

Complementing the services offered at

Feet First Podiatry is their retail store The

Shoe Room, located opposite the Lone

Star in Riccarton Road. The store offers an

extensive range of specialised footwear for

people that have foot problems, difficulty

finding shoes or simply those looking for

stylish, comfortable shoes.

Opening hours are Monday 10am-

5.30pm, Tuesday to Friday 9.30am-

5.30pm with a late night by appointment

on Thursday, and Saturday 10am-4pm.

UnDERStAnDinG

CAPACitY

As lawyers, we are required to

meet with you and take your

instructions in order to help

you complete the particular

legal task you are planning.

Sometimes when we do this,

we need to take a little extra

time to consider your mental

capacity to make decisions.

Mental capacity is a client’s

capacity to make a decision.

Decision making requires

living that a client:

EXERCiSE thE minD

of the mind that could distort

life • understands the decision their decision making.

SUDOKU - EASY SUDOKU - mEDiUm

they are having to make

• can discuss with us the

possible options available

to them in a way that shows

they appreciate the risk and

or benefit of those options

• understands the impact

that a decision, or the lack of

a decision, may have on them

or their loved ones

• is able to articulate and

discuss all of the above with

us.

It is important to note that

the level of capacity required

isn’t the same in every

situation. For example, to

make a Will, the legal test

is whether the client knows

they are making a Will

and the effect of doing so,

whether they understand the

extent of the assets they are

dealing with, whether they

comprehend the moral claims

which they ought to give

effect to, and finally whether

they are free of any disorders

However, when giving

instructions to complete

Enduring Powers of

Attorney, the test is lower

and is satisfied if a client

understands the broad

consequences of granting an

enduring power of attorney

and can process the relevant

information and appreciate

the nature and effect of the

power they are giving.

Having these discussions can

be difficult. However if there

is a risk that a client’s Will or

Enduring Power of Attorney

or other decision of a legal nature might

be challenged it is wise for the client to

obtain a medical certificate in respect of

their capacity in consultation with their

lawyer.

A failure to take this basic precaution

may cause uncertainty, delay, cost and

distress later on.

If a client is concerned about this risk it

SOlUtiOnS On lASt PAGE

is best to discuss with your legal advisor

or general practitioner.

The aroma of biscuits has filled the home of Gianni

Barbafiera since childhood. Moving his wife and

young daughters from South Africa decades ago

in the quest for a safer environment and a more

opportune life, Gianni spends his days working

for Hamilton Jet and his Saturday mornings at the

Riccarton Farmers Market showcasing his variety

of cultural delicacies at his booth, Wooden Spoon.

Referred to as the ‘biscuit man’, we caught up with

him to talk about his customers favourites.

what’s your history with

biscuits?

My father was born in a small Tuscan town in Italy.

He migrated to South Africa in the early sixties,

where he met my lovely mother and my four

siblings, and I grew up.

My earliest recollections, when I was very young,

probably only three or four years old, include

wonderful memories of a weekly home baking

routine. My grandmother employed a wonderful

cook, who would make a selection of biscuits,

my favourites being the flower shaped one with

a cherry in the middle. Baking was part of my

childhood and upbringing.

The nineties were a period of uncertainty in South

Africa, and so my young family at the time, arrived

in New Zealand, ready to re-start our lives.

a biscuit smorgasbord

Most of our early biscuits had an Italian origin,

but not being bound by the restrictions of Italian

traditions, we were free to explore the entire world

of biscuits. Not only Italian Ricciarelli, Cavallucci

and Biscotti, but German Pheffer Küken,

American Snickerdoodles, Scottish shortbread,

English Garibaldis and more.

My wife is the baker and I’m the front of the house.

We pride ourselves on tradition, authenticity and

quality.

any time for a hobby?

Week days are spent with a job I enjoy, Saturdays

are filled with talking with customers who have

become friends, family and I do like to sing in our

Parish choir. Stop by the Biscuit stall, The Wooden

zeaLand’S future

Thanks to COVID we are in the middle of a digital

revolution that is changing the way the world does

business. Technology is supporting the industries

and people that are being disrupted right across

society. Yet the tech sector fails to reflect the

diversity of the world it is enabling.

In a committed move to address this long-standing

issue, NZTech campaigned hard for more diverse

candidates to consider standing for its board.

The message was well received and NZTech’s new

board is the most diverse the sector has ever seen,

which puts the NGO in a great position to better

help the tech ecosystem, and New Zealand, adapt

and evolve in the time of COVID.

NZTech is the voice for technology in New

Zealand. It is a not-for-profit, organisation which

brings together 20 tech associations and more than

1500 member organisations which collectively

employ more than 10 percent of the New Zealand

workforce. The companies and people work

together to help create a more prosperous New

Zealand underpinned by technology.

With three Maori tech leaders on the board the

organisation is well placed to evolve to support

better inclusion in the sector. The NZTech board

has seven women with three in their thirties

spread across New Zealand including Auckland,

Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch.

Maori and Pasifika tech success will be a

critical driver of economic well-being for all

New Zealanders in coming years, presenting

opportunities for the development of new tech

businesses, new jobs and the creation of a globally

unique approach to New Zealand tech.

While covid is having a detrimental impact on

much of the economy, the New Zealand tech

sector continues to grow and create jobs.

There are more than 100,000 people employed

in New Zealand in the tech sector with several

thousand new tech jobs created every year.

Tech exports are likely to be the second biggest

export earner for New Zealand in 2020, generating

more than $12billion in revenue last year for the

top 200 tech exporters.

“NZTech is working with the Ministry of Business,

Innovation and Employment on the development

of an industry transformation plan designed to

further increase the growth of the tech sector so

it can help economic recovery with increasing

exports and jobs,” says NZTech chief executive

Graeme Muller.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Joint pain: Do I have arthritis or

could it be mainly my muscles?

The team at Physical Sense in Sydenham

sees clients with a range of symptoms but

many of their middle-aged and senior clients

visit complaining of pain in one of their joints.

Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests

that a major part of the pain could be due

to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis.

“Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason

for the pain may be the muscles around

the joint,” she explains. The images show

how a muscle knot (the crosses) in a back

muscle can give hip pain (aches and pain

are the red areas in the drawings), a knot

in a muscle on the back of the shoulder

blade can give a deep pain in the front of

the shoulder and a muscle knot all the way

near the groin can give an ache in the knee

(especially at night in bed).

Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year

old client with severe arthritis who walked

with a stick, told her, “I will end up in

a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight

through my right leg due to pain in my hip

and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she

was walking with her stick but without the

severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was

one of the factors that made her muscles

spasm but the other was that older people

move less and the flexed position the hip

is in when we sit is particularly bad for

the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that

although the client was 89 and could have

been “given up on” or told to live with the

pain, she made a difference to her health

and wellbeing.

The same lack of movement can be the

reason for your knee pain or your shoulder

pain and the same few treatments could

make a huge difference for you.

At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques

(massage and triggerpoint deactivation

techniques) are used to release the muscles.

The client also gets a home exercise

program designed to mobilize and stretch

the joint, strengthen the important core

muscles and increase general strength and

SHOULDER

PAIN

KNEE PAIN

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

balance. They teach a movement sequence

that stretches the joint in all directions

whilst the client is able to lie safely on their

bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients.

In many cases having the muscles

released and being taught how to maintain

it, is enough to stay on top of the problem.

HIP PAIN

If severe arthritis is the underlying cause,

some maintenance therapy may be

necessary, but that is often more affordable

and, for older patients, better tolerated

than surgery. After only one treatment you

should know that it will work for you. Call

and only pay $50 on that treament.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the

door and there is ample parking. To enquire about joint pain treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

Homesteads

The Story of New Zealand’s Grand Country Houses

by debra Millar

A stunning tribute to the grand homes built by New Zealand’s pioneering pastoralists,

Homesteads shares a remarkable legacy of this country’s rural heritage. These houses

are among some of the country’s most iconic, many of them surrounded by equally

notable gardens, and all still lived in today. Jane Ussher’s evocative photographs

capture the unique character and architectural diversity of each homestead, while Debra

Millar explores the stories that have shaped these landmark rural properties through

generations. Featured homesteads include Mount Peel Station, Longbeach Estate, Terrace

Station, Surrey Hills and Blue Cliffs Station in Canterbury; Gwavas Garden and Oruawharo

in Hawke’s Bay; Merchiston Station and Pukemarama Station in Manawatu; Puketiti

Station on the North Island’s remote East Coast; and Kuriheka Estate in Otago. This is a

book that showcases an extraordinary range of architecture, interiors and gardens, and

brings the past into the present day.

Wild at Heart

The Dangers and Delights of a Nomadic Life

by Miriam lancewood

Gripping sequel to the international bestseller Woman in the Wilderness, Miriam

Lancewood’s story of the quest for a simple life, unfettered by society’s norms.

Miriam Lancewood’s first book Woman in the Wilderness told her story of living for seven

years in the wilderness of New Zealand with her husband, hunting and gathering, and

roaming the mountains like nomads.

Miriam and Peter left New Zealand to explore other wild places. They walked 2000 km

through the forests of Europe and along the coast of Turkey, mostly camping under trees

and cooking by fire.

They lived on the edge, embracing insecurity, and found the unexpected: sometimes it

was pure bliss, sometimes it was terrifying.

But when they moved on to the Australian desert, they met with disaster.

The Second Life of Tiger Woods

by Michael Bamberger

From Michael Bamberger, author most recently of the New York Times bestseller Men in Green, the

intimate and extraordinary Tiger Woods comeback story, in which the iconic golfer—his game,

body, and life in shambles—makes not only a triumphant return to the winner’s circle (his 2019

Masters title), but discovers along the way more widespread love and admiration than he had ever

known before.

Only Two For Everest

How a First Ascent by Riddiford and Cotter Shaped Climbing History

by lynley McKinnon

The First New Zealand Himalayan Expedition, in 1951, was initiated by Earle Riddiford,

who with Ed Cotter and Pasang Dawa Lama made the first ascent of Mukut Parbat, their

target peak in the Garhwal Himalaya. Accompanying them on that expedition, though not

to that summit, were two other New Zealand climbers, Edmund Hillary and George Lowe.

Hearing of the success on Mukut Parbat, the New Zealand Alpine Club suggested to the

Alpine Club in London that acclimatized New Zealanders would be a valuable asset on

the forthcoming 1951 British Reconnaissance of Mt Everest, to be led by Eric Shipton.

This resulted in an invitation for two New Zealanders to join the party: thrilling news the

four climbers received while they were ensconced in the hill-country village of Ranikhet. A

day and a half of bitter dispute rent the party asunder. Which two should go to Everest? In

this enthralling narrative, journalist Lyn McKinnon tells the stories of Earle Riddiford and

Ed Cotter, two extraordinary New Zealanders whose climbing achievements were forever

eclipsed by the exploits of others.

Wild Horses of the World

by Kelly Wilson

An honest study of the diverse beauty of the world’s wild horses and the harsh, yet

picturesque landscapes they call home.

Wild horses have been an important part of wildlife on Earth for centuries, yet many herds

now face serious threats — and very few people can claim to have seen them galloping free

across the plains, or scaling mountain passes.

Kelly Wilson has. For this book, she spent years researching the world’s wildest herds,

travelling the globe and living among them. From the remote forests of Canada and

snowcapped mountains of America, to the unforgiving deserts of Australia and windswept

beaches of New Zealand, Kelly has captured a raw and honest portrayal of these animals

— their rugged beauty, their unique way of life, and the harsh, yet picturesque landscapes

they call home.

Live the adventure alongside her, as Kelly looks into the secret lives of wild horses, how

their populations are managed, and the many hardships they must overcome in their fight

for survival.
