But the working assumption is now that Greece will not avoid default indefinitely. "The most clear message Greece is sending right now ... is that we are absolutely determined, without weighing any political cost, to fully meet our obligations versus are institutional partners," Venizelos said. "We must prove all those who say that Greece can't, or doesn't have the will, is a pariah or does not deserve to be in the euro, wrong" he said. He also said that holders of Greek government bonds were warming up to a debt swap plan Greece aims to conclude next month, a key part of its new rescue package agreed in July.



Many are yet to be convinced to reinvest in the city. There was very little institutional investment in Christchurch's CBD compared with other main centres and the central city's commercial properties were predominantly owned by between 60 and 100 individual investors, he said. "And those people probably didn't get the level of consultation that was required to make sure that they recommit to Christchurch. "That's something we're grappling with at the moment and we are desperately trying to engage with the council to make sure we don't have a flight of capital. "We need to create an environment in which they feel their investment is welcomed and encouraged and made easy here. "At the moment that's not necessarily the case with the new draft plan. It needs some refinement."



Your furry companion cannot join you, and forget take-out this weekend because you are not allowed commercially produced takeaway food, which includes McDonald's, Burger King and KFC. Bottles, glass, cans, breakable containers, vacuum flasks, and drink bottles are on the list. If you fail to comply with the venue regulations, you can be refused entry or be evicted.



The IRD is cracking down on the hidden economy, launching dawn raids on the homes of people operating cash businesses. At a series of briefings the IRD has held for tax advisers over the last few weeks, attendees learned the department would be targeting "the hospitality, scrap metal, fishing, aquaculture, tourism and horticultural industries". Advisers were told that the hospitality sector would be the first to get extra scrutiny, with ethnic eateries getting particular attention.



Dozens of elderly patients have suffered bleeds – and at least two have died – after taking an anti-blood clotting drug which was rushed onto the market by Pharmac in a deal worth more than $100m. Some doctors say Pharmac, the government drug funding agency, may have put lives at risk by funding Pradaxa, also known as dabigatran, before more was known about managing its side effects. It is unclear how many deaths have resulted, but the Sunday Star-Times has heard of two elderly patients, a man and a woman, dying after bleeds. Other patients, mostly odler than 75, have experienced symptoms including coughing up blood, rectal bleeding and bleeding around the brain. Some improved after they stopped taking Pradaxa but others needed multiple blood transfusions and in some cases there were major surgery complications. An 84-year-old man had to wait nine days for surgery on a fractured hip because of complications associated with Pradaxa.



Lightning struck houses, powerlines were on fire, and roofs lifted off houses after a tornado ripped through the west Auckland suburb of Avondale this afternoon. nzherald.co.nz breaking news videographer Tim Rathael reports that St John Ambulance workers saw the tornado directly in front of them while on a job and were among the first to report it to other emergency services.



Ministry of Health and National Health Board research has found that the region had the highest cancer registration rate in the country - "significantly higher" than the national rate. The cancer registration rate in the Bay of Plenty is 360 per 100,000 population, while the national mean is 339.3. The cancer mortality rate in the Bay is 140.4 per 100,000 population - the seventh worst in the country - while the national mean is 132.8.



Canterbury has been jolted by two aftershocks this morning. The latest, at 11.19am, measured 4.5 on the Richter Scale, and was centred 10 kilometres south-east of Christchurch at a depth of 11 kilometres. A 3.6 was felt at 7.04am, which was located 10 kilometres south-east of Diamond Harbour at a depth of 12 kilometres.



Wild weather has ripped boats from their moorings, damaged power lines and caused havoc for an Auckland yacht race this morning, while the Metservice warns parts of the South Island could be in for a blizzard. Snow is expected to low levels over the far south tomorrow, with the possibility of heavy falls above 300 metres.



An audience of 1,635,780 watched live broadcasts of the All Blacks playing Tonga on Sky Television and free-to-air broadcasts on Television One and Maori Television. "That is an absolutely incredible number especially when you consider that the total potential television audience in New Zealand is 1.9 million households, and some 200,000 people were in central Auckland and another 60,000 were at Eden Park, plus thousands more watching live in Fanzones across the country."



A talented schoolgirl rugby player died just two days after becoming ill with the flu. McAuley High School student Faima'ala Iakopo complained of feeling unwell at school on August 21. The 15-year-old saw a school nurse and her parents were advised to take her to a doctor. But Iakopo, who had been "perfectly healthy" according to the school, became increasingly sick and died in hospital on August 23. Medical experts said it was extremely rare for a seemingly healthy young girl to die from the flu and warned sufferers to seek medical attention if their condition deteriorated.



Kim Dotcom was given residency despite declaring two convictions, which he said had been wiped by "clean slate" legislation in Germany, his home country. But declaring those convictions has cost him the $30 million home in rural North Auckland that he wanted for his family. Officials originally approved the application to buy, saying enough time had passed. But Associate Finance Minister Simon Power and Land Information Minister Maurice Williamson decided he did not meet the "good character" test to buy land here.



TVNZ has told Good Morning hosts Sarah Bradley and Brendan Pongia to reapply for their jobs - and is also holding auditions for the roles. At least 14 people will lose their jobs when the magazine-style show moves from Wellington to Auckland and TVNZ says it wants to "tap into" talent already in Auckland. Pippa Wetzell has previously been linked to the show but, in a recent interview, denied she was interested. Pongia and Bradley have hosted the show since 2006 and are thought to be on annual contracts.



A Cambodian man says his young grandson has lived partly on milk he suckles directly from a cow since the boy's parents left their rural village in search of work. Um Oeung says 20-month-old Tha Sophat started suckling the cow in July after he saw a calf do the same.



"We need a collective response to highlight the issues – we're not looking for a bail-out, we want fair play for red zone residents," spokesman Mike Coleman said. The group was worried that insurance companies were not honouring full replacement policies for homes that were due for demolition in the red zone and that there was no mechanism in place for reviewing the rateable values on which the government offers were based. Residents also wanted the government to take more active measures to improve the availability and affordability of sections for new homes so they could relocate without losing equity or increasing their debt. Coleman said there also needed to be certainty and clarity regarding the future use of red zone land. "We would like to see the land become a permanent public reserve. This would give some peace to those having to leave the land, confidence for those in adjoining green zones and real impetus to the rebuild of the eastern suburbs."



The families of the 29 men killed in the Pike River mine explosion say attempts to reach the bodies of their loved ones are being blocked by the mine's receivers and managers. They say gas levels underground are now stable enough to allow Mines Rescue staff to walk down the mine shaft as far as the deep underground rockfall – a distance of about 2.5km – where they believe some bodies may lie. "This could happen next week but we're getting no co-operation from the receivers and Pike management," Bernie Monk, the spokesman for the families said. "Mines Rescue have been ready to go in for two weeks now." Pike River receiver John Fisk denied he was holding up the recovery effort and said the operation was proceeding as quickly as possible, given the safety considerations. "I understand the frustration from the families because they obviously want things to happen quicker but we need to do this carefully," said Fisk.



Organiser Steve Crow said the parade had been cancelled because public opinion was against the event's timing given the family nature of the Rugby World Cup. "A recent online poll shows 68 per cent of people against us holding Boobs on Bikes at this time. So, and in keeping with our longstanding belief in democracy - as much as it pains us to do so - we are cancelling."

オールブラックスとフランスが対戦する日に予定されていた、”Boobs on Bikes parade”(トップレスの女性がバイクに乗ってパレードするイヴェント)がキャンセルされたようです。主催者は、オンラインの投票で68%の人々が反対を支持していることからキャンセルを決めたと述べています。


Aged 10, John Key decided he wanted to be PM. Forty years on, with one term (nearly) under his belt, has it been worth the climb? He talks to Adam Dudding. The most recent film John Key enjoyed was The King's Speech, in which a renegade Australian speech therapist saves King George VI's bacon by nursing him through his stammer.
