Dominon Post
A web page based on the Wellington newspaper, the Dominion Post

Incredibly, the Dominion Post does not have its own website.

* It does have an "About Me" type page on the Fairfax site. See:

http://www.fairfaxnz.co.nz/businesses/dompost.html

* And it has the page whose link is provided in this entry in The Unscrambled Web, which is part of the "stuff.co.nz" site. It doesn't show you what the paper looks like, and is an unreliable guide to what is in the paper on any day, but it's the best we have.

FARK.com
Funny news stories from around the world

"The word Fark doesn't mean anything. It's a word Drew used instead in chat rooms and online games back in the early 90s. He became known for saying it at random intervals just for the hell of it, so one day in late 1997 he decided to go out and register the domain. Drew had somehow gotten into the habit of sending odd news to friends of his in England, where he lived for a year while in college. He started sending emails with the funny news stories to his friends via email. However, emails were going out several times a day, and Drew started to suspect that they might be annoying. Remembering he owned the Fark.com domain name, he started a website and told all his friends to go there for the weird news. That was February 12, 1999.

"During all of 1999, Fark got 50,000 pageviews.

"During all of 2004, Fark got over 400 million pageviews.

"We're not sure what we'll get during 2006, but at this rate by the end of the year there will be more people reading Fark than will be alive on the planet at that time. It will be interesting to see how that works out."

Illuminati
Real conspiracy or fictitious?

Wikipedia describes Illuminati as follows:
The Illuminati is the name of many groups, modern and historical, real and fictitious, verified and alleged. Most commonly The Illuminati refers specifically to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment secret society. However, it often refers to an alleged shadowy conspiratorial organization that controls world affairs behind the scenes, usually a modern incarnation or continuation of the Bavarian Illuminati. Illuminati is sometimes used synonymously with New World Order.

The word conspiracy, as it relates to this site, will be defined in the context of a scheme: to act in harmony toward a common end. As it has been known for centuries, "alchemists conceal in order to baffle the vulgar." This site exists for the sole purpose of penetrating the veil.

John Pilger
Complete articles, letters, blogs and books.

John Pilger is a world-renowned journalist, author and documentary filmmaker, who began his career in 1958 in his homeland, Australia, before moving to London in the 1960s.

He regards eye-witness as the essence of good journalism. He has been a foreign correspondent and a front-line war reporter, beginning with the Vietnam war in 1967. He is an impassioned critic of foreign military and economic adventures by Western governments.

"It is too easy," he says, "for Western journalists to see humanity in terms of its usefulness to 'our' interests and to follow government agendas that ordain good and bad tyrants, worthy and unworthy victims and present 'our' policies as always benign when the opposite is usually true. It's the journalist's job, first of all, to look in the mirror of his own society."

He believes a journalist also ought to be a guardian of the public memory and often quotes Milan Kundera: "The struggle of people against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting."

Noam Chomsky wrote: "John Pilger's work has been a beacon of light in often dark times. The realities he has brought to light have been a revelation, over and over again, and his courage and insight a constant inspiration."

Harold Pinter wrote: "John Pilger unearths, with steely attention, the facts, the filthy truth, and tells it as it is."

Matrix Masters
Provocative and little publicized stories from the world's press

The mission of Matrix Masters' News summaries can best be summed up in the lines Franklin Rosemont wrote in his introduction to the writings of Slim Brundage, where he described Chicago's famous College of Complexes:

The aim of the College of Complexes, as an educational/recreational forum, was neither to recruit members nor to mobilize troops for the achievement of specific goals, but rather to inform, agitate, educate, emancipate, provoke, inspire, offend, scandalize, tickle, and excite.

Well, our aim here at Matrix Masters is to provoke an unmuffled, ungagged, and unsilenced generation of world citizens into speaking up and taking the actions necessary to wrest control from the privileged few and to reclaim this planet in the name of all the humans, animals, plants, and other forms of life who share its bounty.

And as for our name, “Matrix Masters”, we intend this as a reminder that ultimately YOU are the Master of Your Own Matrix . . . unless, of course, you have surrendered that right to someone else :-).

Radio New Zealand
The official website of the state broadcaster

Radio New Zealand is a Crown entity established under the Radio New Zealand Act 1995.

Radio New Zealand provides listeners with exciting and independent radio programmes in accordance with the Radio New Zealand Charter.

Radio New Zealand broadcasts over three nationwide networks; Radio New Zealand National, Radio New Zealand Concert and the AM network which relays Parliamentary proceedings. Radio New Zealand International (RNZI) is our overseas shortwave service, broadcasting to the South Pacific and beyond, while Radio New Zealand News provides comprehensive, up-to-the-minute news and current affairs information.

National and Concert are funded by New Zealand On Air.

Contact information can be found on the Contact Us page.

Radio New Zealand — Brief History
Public broadcasting had its beginnings in 1925 when, under a five year contract, the government granted the Radio Broadcasting Company substantial income from radio dealers' licences and 25 shillings from each receiving licence on the condition that the company expand four existing stations in the main centres to establish a national non-commercial broadcasting system, the direct forerunner of today's National Radio.

Company income was insufficient to meet demands for expansion and 1931 legislation established the government-appointed New Zealand Broadcasting Board which was also dependent on licence fee income. In 1936 the first Labour government set up the National Broadcasting Service as a government department which soon added fully commercial stations.

After the war this system became the New Zealand Broadcasting Service (NZBS) and in 1962 government department status ended with the establishment of the New Zealand Broadcasting Corporation (NZBC). During the next thirty years the system was changed numerous times but a public, non-commercial radio service remained as an integral part of the mix.

The 1995 Broadcasting Act established Radio New Zealand as a stand-alone, Crown-owned entity with major responsibilities being National Radio, Concert FM and Radio New Zealand International.

Radio New Zealand National
Broadcasting 24 hours a day, Radio New Zealand National reaches almost every New Zealander. Its programme mix includes news and current affairs, documentaries and features, drama and music. At least 33% of the music it broadcasts is New Zealand in origin.

Talk-orientated programmes make up 60% of air time. National is well known for its high profile programmes and personalities including 'Nine to Noon with Kathryn Ryan', 'Saturday Morning with Kim Hill' and 'Sunday Morning with Chris Laidlaw'.

Specialist features and documentaries produced exclusively for National focus on the interests of particular groups in the community.

Drama production includes plays and readings of New Zealand literature.

Maori programming can be heard across the schedule.

Radio New Zealand Concert
Radio New Zealand Concert is Radio New Zealand’s fine music network. Music comprises 85% of air time. Much of this is classical, with additional specialist music programmes covering jazz, contemporary and world music.

Concert actively promotes New Zealand music and composition, providing an important showcase for the best of the country’s performing artists. Its specialised production department commissions work from New Zealand musicians and composers, and initiates a wide range of music programmes. The station delivers live broadcasts of concerts and recitals both of New Zealand artists and visiting international artists.

Concert also features international programmes selected from public radio broadcasters overseas.

Parliamentary Broadcasts
The AM network broadcasts all sittings of Parliament.

Radio New Zealand International
Radio New Zealand International (RNZI) provides vital news and information services, via its shortwave broadcasts to the South Pacific. It also provides a wide range of New Zealand programmes to listeners in the Pacific and beyond.

Radio New Zealand News
Radio New Zealand News are vital elements in our programming, providing impartial news and information to New Zealanders every day.

Radio New Zealand Sound Archives/Ngā Taonga Kōrero
Sound Archives / Ngā Taonga Kōrero is the country’s leading archive of contemporary and historical radio programmes. It is responsible for collecting, preserving and providing access to New Zealand’s audio heritage.

Replay Radio
Replay Radio produces and sells copies of many interviews and programmes broadcast on National and Concert, plus selected material from other sources.
