New Zealand Energy Extends Alton Permit For Second Five-year Term, Provides Update On Eltham And Cas

"Following on from the sales to the U.S. Navy we can expect interest from other military organizations as well," DTA Director Dr. Brian Young. "It can be configured to the specifications of a variety of mines and carries sensors that can detect approaching divers and activates in various ways depending on how noisy or active they are around it," International interest is also being shown in DTA's development of avionics for unmanned aerial vehicles. "The avionics are certainly world-leading in terms of both mission capability -- including sensor control -- and safety systems," Young said. "In the event of a system failure it (a UAV outfitted with the avionics system) has the ability to self-terminate a mission and great site return to base, or alternatively it can deploy a parachute to land safely." DTA technologies are being commercialized by commercialized by Air Affairs Ltd, go!! a New Zealand company that provides defense and aviation equipment and systems. 2013 United Press International, Inc.

Shanghai firm buys New Zealand resort as Chinese tourism booms

Police have supposedly spoken to several victims but they claim that theyve yet to receive a formal statement so theyve been unable to make an arrest. One woman, now age 15, is claiming that she made a formal statement two years ago. She says that police told her that because she was wearing a skirt, she was asking for it, according to the Daily Mail. This week, one victim appeared anonymously on a New Zealand news station. I just kept blacking out cause I had drunken too much, one girl told New Zealands 3 News. You could say I got raped.

New Zealand outrage over 'Roast Busters' online boasts of teen rape

The alleged offenses happened two years ago but were only made public this week after local media came across a Facebook site, which named and "slut-shamed" girls the boys had allegedly attacked. Her face and voice disguised, one of the alleged victims told 3 News: "I just kept blacking out 'cause I had drunken too much... You could say I got raped. I had sex with three guys at one time." The alleged offenders -- a group of then school-aged boys -- call themselves the "Roast Busters." Until this week police say they'd been boasting of their exploits on a number of websites, including Ask.fm and Twitter, as well as the Facebook site which has been shut down. In a video posted to YouTube, two boys made no attempt to hide their faces as they told the camera: "We don't choose the roast, the roast chooses us... They know what we're like; they know what they're in for." I just kept blacking out 'cause I had drunken too much... You could say I got raped.

"Affluent Chinese tourists tend to use Chinese tourist agencies, which in turn prefer to recommend Chinese-owned resorts internationally," Guo Gui, Shanghai CRED's general manager, said in a statement on Friday. Shanghai CRED did not disclose what it paid to buy the resort from Paul Kelly, an American banker and investor. It said it would spend "millions" on the upgrade but did not specify the amount. On the scenic Karikari Peninsula, the resort is about 270 km (167 miles) north of Auckland, the country's biggest city and main international gateway. China is the second-biggest source of visitors to New Zealand. More than 236,000 Chinese travellers visited in the year to September 31 - a 50 percent jump from the previous year - and spent an estimated NZ$645 million ($536 million).

"That's definitely something we want to achieve, it's been mentioned but we know we have to take one day and one game at a time. If we put every amount of focus on that one game, the result will take care of itself," he said. France coach Philippe Saint-Andre, who has picked a new half-back pairing in Morgan Parra and Remi Tales, admits his players are the underdogs but insisted they would not accept being a New Zealand punchbag. "They have a huge desire but also fear, which should be positive," he said. "We respect New Zealand rugby but we want to show that French rugby exists. "From a mental point of view, the players are ready.
