New Zealand Fault Line Wakes Up: Plate Boundary Rupture Would Cause A Massive 9.0 Earthquake And Tsumami – “We Need To Think Japan 2011″

Fault Line Wakes Up: New Zealand Could Be DESTROYED By Massive 9.0 Earthquake:

A 2016 earthquake has awoken a fault line that was thought to be dormant. Now that it’s becoming active, fears have arisen that New Zealand could be destroyed by a massive 9.0 magnitude earthquake.

The devastating Kaikura earthquake in 2016 has resurrected the Hikurangi subduction zone where two tectonic plates clash and one is pushed down. Geologists are now warning that this trench could cause a massive earthquake on the ocean floor, and could trigger other 9.0 magnitude earthquakes and tsunamis that will reach the western coast of the islands in just seven minutes.

The Australian plate is heading north while the Pacific plate is heading west, and the combination of these motions means that the Pacific plate, which includes much of the South Island, is moving relative to the Australian plate at a rate of about 40millimeterss each year in a southwesterly direction.

Ursula Cochran, from the science firm GNS, told The Marlborough Express:

“We need to think Japan 2011 basically, because if our whole plate boundary ruptured it would be a magnitude-9 earthquake.”

New Zealand: National MP Trained By Chinese Spies

Newsroom Investigation: National MP trained by Chinese spies:

A National Party MP who studied at an elite Chinese spy school before moving to New Zealand has attracted the interest of our Security Intelligence Service.

The list MP Jian Yang did not mention in his work or political CVs a decade he spent in the People’s Liberation Army-Air Force Engineering College or the Luoyang language institute run by China’s equivalent of the United States National Security Agency.

New Zealand Has The Highest Adolescent Suicide Rate Of All Wealthy Countries, Says New Report

New Zealand Has The Highest Adolescent Suicide Rate Of All Wealthy Countries, Says New Report:

The Building the Future: Children and the Sustainable Development Goals in Rich Countries report measured the rate of suicide in adolescents across 41 OECD and EU countries.

It found almost one in five (19.8%) children in New Zealand are living in relative income poverty, and that the nation has the sixth-highest teen birth rate (Mexico was first).

“It is important we don’t just look at our shocking youth suicide rate, and realise that the children who are having suicidal thoughts are likely the same children who are living under the poverty line and with food shortages,” UNICEF New Zealand’s national advocacy manager, Dr Prudence Stone, told BuzzFeed News.

“New Zealand is ranking poorly even as a high income nation because our leaders and successive governments have not been strategic, and we know that the first services to go when there is no increase in funding are mental health and public health services.

“Too many children are losing hope and giving up.”

Adele Caught Shapeshifting Into Eight-Foot Reptilian In New Zealand

Warning readers to “hold onto their hats”, the New Zealand Herald writer claims that a number of fans who were invited backstage to meet Adele witnessed the British singer “shapeshift into a giant lizard” and then apologize for scaring them, explaining that she meant no harm and is a “good reptilian.”


Adele Caught Shapeshifting Into Eight-Foot Reptilian In New Zealand:

Adele “shapeshifted into an eight-foot reptilian” backstage at Auckland’s Mount Smart Stadium after the final concert of her world tour, according to shocked fans and a reporter from the New Zealand Herald. 

The ten super fans, invited backstage to meet Adele after her final New Zealand show, got more than they bargained for when the singer “shapeshifted” into a “massive, at least eight or nine feet tall, powerfully built reptilian” with “greenish-grey scales“, to quote one of the witnesses.

Jim Joint, reporting for the New Zealand Herald, wrote that the super fans told him Adele had “flickering reptile eyes with a black stripe down the middle” and “scaly horns and protrusions” all over her body.

She looked shocked, like she wasn’t prepared for the change,” a witness told the Herald.

As 200 More Whales Are Stranded In New Zealand, Heroics Turn To Heartbreak

As 200 More Whales Are Stranded In New Zealand, Heroics Turn To Heartbreak:

The day began with grim resolve, as volunteers descended upon a remote New Zealand beach to try to send some 100 beached pilot whales back to sea. By mid-afternoon local time, most of those whales — the survivors of country’s third-largest stranding on record — had successfully swum back into Golden Bay.

It could have been a happy ending to a story that began tragically, with some 300 whales found dead after more than 400 stranded earlier in the week on Farewell Spit, a thin strip of beach that arcs like a bent finger into the waters north of New Zealand’s South Island.

The volunteers’ celebrations did not last long, though.

Another large pod, composed of approximately 200 whales, stranded just hours later near the original site. The members of that second group appear to be different from the original survivors, which had been tagged before being refloated. None of the new whales bore those tags, NBC News reports.
