It's also listed under "sport". That was never an elective when I was at school... Although, to be fair, I did go to an all boys school.

Personally, I find the article above it fairly pointless. Pure speculation about a cluster which could indeed be serious, but could also be all points in between to pretty much nothing, but pretty much nothing doesn't make a good headline so lets give people something extra to worry about in the meantime.

Stuff, not a headline - but in the body.

 

https://www.stuff.co.nz/southland-times/news/122895412/m-bovis-investigations-continue-in-southland-but-few-and-far-between

 

"A total of 158,150 animals have been culled and $174.6 had been paid as compensation to farmers to date."

 

Not even a 0 in the $, and never realised it would be so cheap :-)

 

(Who proof reads there? Oh, that's right - NO-ONE!)

The Fonz is my "cool" reference point so I'm glad they included that picture. Now I know I can trust that article.

 

Sidenote - interesting that Stuff is now saying that the measure success by Trust and not Clicks - https://www.stuff.co.nz/opinion/300114743/world-news-day-why-stuff-measures-success-by-trust-not-clicks

 

Be interesting to see if the content on the website evolves.

They've published it as an opinion piece...😃, maybe not everyone at Stuff feels the same way.

 

My sidenote (I've said it before but will say it again) - Stuff won't win my trust so long as they're still showing Outbrain clickable crud.

I like this from Stuff:

“Solvander left the crash scene but was found nearby a short distance away by police.“

Fairly certain that Isaac Newton didn't attach anything to a kite to study electricity.  Benjamin Franklin, on the other hand....

 

(Come on, Stuff - not only did they live in two different countries, they were barely alive at the same time together: Sir Isaac Newton, December 1642 – March 1727; Benjamin Franklin, Jan 1706 - April 1790)

 

Sigh.

Perhaps they didn’t attend any STEM subjects, or history for that matter!

 

The only requirement to be a journalist these days is to have a social media account.

"It appals me that anybody is looking at significant price increases right now,“

Yes, Stuff. Your spelling and proofreading “appals” me.
