Kaikōura $30 million 4.5-star hotel build a 'game changer' for town
the world's changed so much since I grew up.
It used to be that a 5-star hotel was the bee's knees. Now we're up to what, 8-star hotels. And now I find out we can have partial stars. It used to be that if a hotel was better than a 4-star hotel but not quite up to being a 5-star hotel, then too bad, it was a 4-star hotel. Nowadays, it can be a 4.5-star hotel, and no doubt a 4.124-star hotel or a 4-and-2/3-star hotel

NZ's socialist healthcare system is cracking down on bad doctors
Public hospital radiologist ordered to apologise for inaccurate scan reading of woman later found to have pancreatic cancer
"I'm sorry if anyone's upset"?
Her report does not say where the case occurred or who the radiologist was.
Of course not. You wouldn't want the public to know so they could avoid him (or her) in the future.
It seems the radiologist still has a medical license and a job

the days when we get an AI (built into the scanner?) to read the scans, the better

Air New Zealand world's first airline to serve up plant-based burger on flights
The award-winning Impossible Burger claims to cook, smell and taste like beef.
other than carnivores with health issues, who would want such a thing?
carnivores want real meat and vegetarians don't want to eat something that tastes like meat
I'm always reminded of ADM who used to sponsor one of the sunday talk shows long ago (the brinkley show I think) and had a rubbery veggie burger they used to advertize to precisely that demographic, people who'd had heart attacks and so on
