  • Tuke wants NZ round Sailing: Black Foils wing-trimmer Blair Tuke has reacted to the news SailGP has tacked away from Christchurch next year. Lyttelton Harbour hosted the last two New Zealand legs — and had a contract to hold the 2025 edition. New Zealand won the medal race there in March — at a regatta where the opening day was canned due to the sighting of a threatened dolphin species. Tuke’s steered clear of rocking the boat, but hopes New Zealand remains a SailGP stopover — a schedule announcement for next season is imminent.

  • Allied against West Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have signed an agreement that pledges mutual aid if either country faces “aggression”, a strategic pact that comes as both face escalating standoffs with the West. The deal could mark the strongest connection between Moscow and Pyongyang since the end of the Cold War. Both leaders described it as a major upgrade of their relations, covering security, trade, investment, cultural and humanitarian ties. The summit came as Putin visited North Korea for the first time in 24 years. Kim said the two countries had a “fiery friendship”, and that the deal was their “strongest ever treaty,” putting the relationship at the level of an alliance.

    In game seven of the 1970 NBA Finals, New York Knicks centre Willis Reed shocked fans, pundits and opposition when he made his way onto the court to take his place opposing LA Lakers big man Wilt Chamberlain.

  • Tesla grumpy only ‘handpicked allies’ picked for emissions feedback

    The Government is quietly reviewing the emissions standards for the vehicles car companies import into New Zealand, although it is not keen to publicise the changes or consult on them very widely.

  • Sold-out final is a beginning, not the conclusion

    The sold-out signs are up, Auckland’s landmarks are getting lit up in blue, and a convoy of Chiefs fans are preparing to make the hour and a half (roadworks dependent) journey up State Highway 1 tomorrow.

  • Price rises on way for Spark customers

    Spark is the latest service provider to increase prices. The telco’s broadband and mobile customers will pay between $2 and $8 per month more from August, depending on their plan.

  • Bond for drillers ‘won’t work’

    Resources Minister Shane Jones wanted to introduce oil and gas bonds so the sector would be compensated if a future government upended its work — but he’s been told it’s not workable.
