WikiLeaks' Kiwi leaks
Source: Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times has obtained from WikiLeaks around 1500 American cables that refer specifically to New Zealand.

WikiLeaks in the process of releasing 251,000 United States embassy cables from around the world but, until today, none of the 1490 cables sent from Wellington have been made public.

The cables we have obtained reveal that full collaboration with US intelligence agencies curtailed after New Zealand's anti-nuclear policies were resumed in August last year, something both governments kept secret. Ahead of a scheduled visit in January this year, postponed until November, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was warned not to acknowledge the news in public.

The cables also reveal an increase in co-operation with US intelligence agencies and military, contradicting statements in New Zealand intelligence agency annual reports that their operations relate purely to national security. According to the cables, US and New Zealand officials again preferred to keep the change secret.

4. You mean it hasn't always been that way?
That would be the real newsflash!

7. Metastasis.
Metastasis (Greek: displacement, μετά, next, + στάσις, placement; plural: metastases), or metastatic disease (sometimes abbreviated mets), is the spread of a disease from one organ or part to another non-adjacent organ or part. It had been previously thought that only malignant tumor cells and infections have the capacity to metastasize; however, this is being reconsidered due to new research.<1><2><3>

... rugged individual/
Glisten like a pearl,
At the bottom of the world/
The tyrany of distance
Didn't stop the cavalier/
So why should it stop me,
I'll conquer and stay free.

Ah, come on all you lads/
Let's forget and forgive/
There's a world to explore/
Tales to tell back on shore/

I just spent six months in a leaky boat
