    Tết Maori:

    Matariki: New Zealand celebrates first Indigenous public holiday
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...public-holiday

    Across Aotearoa New Zealand, people have been gathering this week in pre-dawn mornings and icy winter nights to honour Matariki, the Māori new year. This year marks the first time the celebration is being formally and legally recognised, making it the country’s first Indigenous public holiday.

    Matariki is the Māori name for a cluster of stars known elsewhere as the Pleiades. The constellation is visible from New Zealand for eleven months of the year, but disappears from the skies for a month in winter, reappearing in mid June, around the time of the winter solstice. Its rising is recognised by many iwi [tribes] as the beginning of a new year.

    The holiday centres on three principles: remembrance of those who have died, celebrating the present with family and friends; and looking to the future promise of a new year. It is believed to be one of the first Indigenous celebrations to be recognised as a public holiday in a settler colonial state.

    shark bites in Australia are increasing
    https://www.theguardian.com/news/dat...nt-to-know-why

    A new dataset on shark incidents in Australia stretching back to 1791 has found an increase in reported attacks, especially in recent decades, but researchers caution changes in the frequency and manner of reports need to be considered when examining the data.

    The data could also be affected by increasing populations or changing social norms around things like swimming.

    “Globally and in Australia, shark bites on humans have increased steadily over the past few decades,” says Prof Charlie Huveneers from Flinders University.

    Sydney’s beach almost vanishes after wild weather causes severe erosion
    https://www.theguardian.com/australi...severe-erosion

    Weeks of rain and wild weather have severely eroded beaches in some coastal regions of New South Wales.

    Some of the worst hits areas were Sydney’s Cronulla and North Maroubra beaches, and Bar Beach in Newcastle.

    Xứ kiwi ho cò gáy:

    New Zealand voted second-worst place to move to
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...ace-to-move-to

    In a resulting ranking of 52 countries – those for whom there was a large enough sample size – Aotearoa New Zealand ranked in the doldrums, at 51. It was beaten to the bottom by Kuwait.

    New Zealand’s poor ranking may come as something of a surprise. During the pandemic, some of its cities were rated the world’s most livable, and “moving to New Zealand” has become a common catch-cry among Americans dissatisfied with their own country’s political outlook.

    Mexico was ranked first in the survey, with particularly high scores for personal finance and the ease of settling in. Filling out the top five were Indonesia, Taiwan, Portugal, and Spain.

    Qantas asks executives to volunteer to fill in as baggage handlers
    https://www.theguardian.com/business...ggage-handlers

    Senior executives at Qantas are being asked to trade their high-profile positions to work as ground handlers as part of a plan to combat labour shortages.

    The embattled airline’s chief operating officer, Colin Hughes, told staff in an internal memo that Qantas is seeking expressions of interest for a contingency program over a three-month period.


    At least 100 managers will be recruited to sort and scan bags and transport luggage.

    Aotearoa or New Zealand: the moment to change the country’s name
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-countrys-name

    The petition, which has sparked international interest from outlets such as NPR and The Wall Street Journal, was launched by the Māori party in September 2021 and has recently been submitted to parliament for consideration.

    It calls on the government to change New Zealand’s official name to Aotearoa (pronounced ow-tear-roh-ah), a te reo Māori name for the country, and to “identify and officially restore the original te reo Māori names for all towns, cities and places right across the country” over the next five years, completing the process by 2026.

    Surprisingly good orientation of a butterfly in flight of thousands of kilometers



    The insect popularly known as the “death sphinx butterfly” (although it is actually an insect) has been the subject of an investigation using small tracking devices to track the flight of specimens of this species. .

    Monitoring results suggest that the death sphinx butterfly continuously adjusts its flight direction during its nocturnal migration in response to winds and other topographical features to maintain its course, which indicates that these animals continue to grow throughout their journey. use a sophisticated system. Or compass mechanism for navigation.

    The discovery reveals new insights into how these insects travel such long distances during seasonal migration and shows that complex migration strategies are not unique to vertebrates.

    Every year, billions of migratory insects such as butterflies, locusts and moths travel great distances around the world on a journey crossing continents, mountain ranges, oceans and a wide range of environmental conditions.

    Although long-distance seasonal migrations are relatively well understood at the population level, how different insects accomplish them is less understood.

    This is the case of Lepidoptera that migrate at night, such as the death sphinx butterfly, which travels up to 4,000 km between Europe and sub-Saharan Africa.

    Given the challenges of tracking such small nocturnal flying animals over such long distances, individual moths have never been observed during their migration. As a result, the abilities and behaviors these creatures use to maintain a straight flight path over long distances are unknown.

    Miles Mainz of the Max Planck Institute for Animal Behavior (now at James Cook University in Australia) and his colleagues placed small very high frequency (VHF) radio transmitters on the backs of death sphinx butterflies and attached them to an airplane during night migration flights. Tracked, Received Detailed itinerary for seven samples.

    Mainz and his colleagues found that these moths not only fly in one direction with a favorable tailwind, but were also able to correct their specific flight paths in the face of damaging winds and terrain features to maintain a straight flight path. Destination

    According to the study authors, maintaining a consistent straight flight path and flight speed throughout the night in variable wind conditions is a strong indicator that the moth has an internal compass mechanism. This, and the insect’s exceptional night vision, suggest that death depends on a combination of visual landmarks and Earth’s magnetic field to navigate considerable distances during sphinx butterfly migration.

    The study is titled “Individual tracking reveals long-distance flight-path control in a nocturnal migrating moth.” And it has been published in the academic journal Science. (source: AAAS)

    Australia raises permanent migration cap to 195,000 to ease workforce shortages
    https://www.theguardian.com/australi...orce-shortages

    About 35,000 additional people will be able to permanently migrate to Australia this year after the Albanese government announced the lifting of the migration cap to 195,000 places.

    The immigration minister, Andrew Giles, said the government will spend $36.1m to hire 500 more staff in the home affairs department to clear a visa application backlog that now stretches to 900,000.

    Dai Le likens Covid lockdowns to ‘communist dictatorship’ in first speech

    https://www.theguardian.com/australi...n-first-speech

    Le, a former Liberal party candidate and independent deputy mayor of Fairfield, told the parliament of her family’s arrival in Australia as refugees in 1979.

    They had fled Vietnam in 1975, when she was just seven years old, boarding wooden boats to the Philippines and then Hong Kong, before being accepted to resettle in Australia.

    “I remember running with my mother and two younger sisters, scrambling to make our way on to a boat and pushing through the cries and screams of women,” Le said, at points becoming emotional while recounting her family history.

    “I remember the moment when I thought we would die when a huge storm hit our boat.”

    “I remember my sister and I hanging on to dear life, while my mother held my other sister tightly in her arms ... I remember how my face almost hit the ocean as our boat rocked so hard from the storm.”

    Le, wearing traditional Vietnamese dress, known as an áo dài, emblazoned with a design of the Australian flag, spoke of her “gratitude and freedom” at coming to Australia

    “We were filled with hope as we looked out on to the horizon of endless possibilities,” she said.

    “This migration story belongs to all of us. It’s our story, and we can all be proud to share it.”

    Her speech was greeted by supporters in Parliament House’s public galleries clapping, shouting and chanting her name.
