4 people are sitting together on a train journey through Europe. There is a Kiwi fella, an Aussie bloke, a small old granny and a hot Swedish lady.

There is a Kiwi fella, an Aussie bloke, a small old granny and a hot Swedish lady. The train heads on through a dark tunnel and a moment later everyone hears the sound of a vicious slap. When the train comes out of the tunnel, the Aussie has a nasty red handprint on his face. Nobody says anything. The small group assumes the Aussie must’ve groped the Swedish lady when it was dark and earned himself a slap. The Swedish lady assumes the Aussie bloke tried to grope me in the dark, missed and groped the small granny who in turn slapped his face. The Aussie bloke assumes the Kiwi fella must’ve groped the hot Swedish lady in the dark tunnel, and she tried to hit him and hit me in the face. The clever Kiwi fella thinks: I’m looking forward to the next tunnel so I can belt that Aussie guy in the face again.

Shot Bro - Covid buses will start operating from this morning to boost vaccinations in harder-to-reach parts of the community.

Brian from New Lynn

The buses are being unveiled at Auckland Airport Park & Ride facility. The converted black and orange Park & Ride buses have vaccinate signs posted on their sides. One reads "Roll up your sleeves, Auckland". Another sign says "Vaccinate for Auckland". Labour MP Willie Jackson said the answer to boosting vaccination among Māori and Pasifika people was to enlist the help of people from within those communities.
"Our people know our people." Jackson said he was pleased to see the support at community level for vaccines.
"I'm really excited because we need to get out into these communities in South Auckland," he said. The buses would help those who may have been reticent or not had easy access to vaccines. Auckland Mayor Phil Goff said: "We are taking the vaccine to the people." The aim was to get up to 80 per cent of Aucklanders having had one shot of the vaccine by the end of the week. While the current lockdown was the right decision, the country could not rely on lockdowns forever. The six buses - on loan to the Northern Region Health Coordination Centre - will act like pop-up vaccination clinics. Pukekohe is one of the first areas a bus will visit this afternoon. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern this week asked for names for the "Mr Whippy"-style vaccine bus service and has now narrowed it down to four favourites - Jabba Waka, Shot Bro, Jabbin' Wagon, Vaxi Taxi.

Joy, the Internet is Here!

Oh jolly good we said
We can persecute the living

The internet is here!
Oh jolly good we said
We can persecute the living
And celebrate the dead

We’ll talk up all the old things
And make the present bad
And look forward to a future
That no one yet has had

We’ll become experts in all matters
That once were out of our bounds
And run select secret societies
All hidden underground

We’ll mine for money whilst sleeping
And see planets beyond the moon
Whilst never leaving our armchairs
Or the comfort of our room

And when the children’s voices
Vanish from the streets
We’ll put it down to friends on Facebook
And watch their Google meets

We’ll research how to garden
And go online and buy the tools
Then contact our local handyman
Because we’re told outside is for the fools

We'll be asked by the Facebook Gods
'What is on your minds'
And answer them with integrity
and then be moderated for being unkind

Yes, the Internet has made man-kind
And for that we are forced to pay
Without the knowing of what the future holds
As for hindsight, we’ll turn that knowledge away

Australia's two most populous states are trialling facial recognition software that lets police check people are home during COVID-19 quarantine, expanding trials that have sparked controversy to the vast majority of the country's population.
While the recognition technology has been used in countries like China, no other democracy has been reported as considering its use in connection with coronavirus containment procedures.
The UN has warned against facial rcognition technology, arguing it could pose a serious danger to human rights -
"Facial recognition technology might seem like a convenient way to monitor people in quarantine but ... if something goes wrong with this technology, the risk of harm is high".
