Will former US President Barack Obama visit New Zealand this year?
It sounds like he's promoting Air NZ

Although the details of his possible visit haven't been revealed, it is understood it will be arranged by Air New Zealand to align with the launch of a new route to the United States.
The route may be to Chicago, which is Obama's home town.
It was announced last year that former Prime Minister, Sir John Key was spreading his wings and joined the board of Air New Zealand, which may of been a deciding factor for Obama to come to New Zealand and potentially promote airline due to their friendship, the Herald reports.


Barack Obama's speech in Auckland to be invite-only affair

He wouldn't reveal how much the visit will cost.
"We didn't want to have this like a typically-promoted speech, where we were advertising and selling tickets, so all of the sponsors were of the same mind that we wanted to make this an invitation only speech so that people get to enjoy him without having to pay.

I miss the old days, when former presidents didn't feel the need to whore themselves out for speaking fees

NZ gynaecologist told to apologise after removing both of woman's fallopian tubes without consent
I thought that maybe he might lose his medical license, or be suspended, or at least a hefty fine.
But no, he has to apologize. No doubt "I'm sorry you're upset"

maybe this has lost something in translation
Good Sorts: Kate Borman for her idea to reuse reusable diapers

aside from the obvious point that reusable implies they can be reused, I seem to recall that people have been arguing about this one for years because washing reusable diapers uses so much energy that a lot of environmentalists think that disposable diapers are the lesser evil
