The Guardian view on Jacinda Ardern: pregnant with meaning | Editorial

New Zealand was the first country to give votes to women. Now it gives childcare to the prime minister’s partnerOf course it ought not to be news that someone with an important job has a baby and then gets on with their work while their partner gets on with the childcare. Men do it all the time. Even some women do, if they are rich and powerful enough to turn their childcare over to paid help. But the announcement by Jacinda Ardern, the prime minister of New Zealand, that she will have a child, take six weeks’ parental leave, and then leave the bulk of the childcare to her partner, Clarke Gayford, is still important. It’s an assertion of everyday equality from the first country in the world to give women the vote.Ms Ardern and Mr Gayford are not exactly a couple like any other: she’s the prime minister, and he’s a television presenter, whose show centres on him killing and eating fish. But their relative prominence makes the impact of their decision greater. Even Mr Gayford’s screen persona as a macho outdoor man increases the significance of their announcement. It demonstrates that they recognise there’s an important sense in which neither of their high-powered jobs is going to be as influential as the work they do as parents. Continue reading...

Alastair Cook becomes the first man to carry his bat in an MCG Test Australia end a rain-affected day on 103 for two, 61 runs behind 6.18am GMT That’s all, folks. It’s a frustrating scene for England, though I’m sure they’ll return with bushy tails in the morning. Australia will be equally optimistic that David Warner and Steve Smith can continue their excellent defensive performance and secure a draw. They will resume tomorrow morning on 103 for two, still 61 runs behind. Thanks for your company, goodnight! 6.17am GMT “Hang on, Guy Hornsby,” says Sarah Bacon. “Nowt to be sniffed at, gin-wise, when one is an Aussie living in England, and up at sparrow’s in arctic temps to watch this thing. Seeing as we’ve already had our wins, may as well partake of gins! Bed beckons, but I’ll see this Test match through if it kills me. (It won’t.)” Continue reading...

Bright spots at a gloomy time for the British wine trade

The immediate future isn’t looking all that rosy, for obvious reasons, but there are success stories to help lift the wine trade’s moodIt would be easy to head into 2018 feeling deeply gloomy about the wine trade. Prices are undoubtedly going to continue to rise, as a result of which cheaper wines will only decline in quality and supermarket ranges will shrink even further (not least because, on the face of it, no one seems to want to drink anything but prosecco, New Zealand sauvignon blanc and malbec). The best bottles are going to more lucrative markets. Continue reading...

Новая Зеландия: Блинные скалы

 Punakaiki is a small community on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, between Westport and Greymouth. The community lies on the edge of the Paparoa National Park. The Pancake Rocks are a very popular tourist destination at Dolomite Point south of the main village. The Pancake Rocks are a heavily eroded limestone area where the sea bursts through several vertical blowholes during high tides. Together with the 'pancake'-layering of the limestone (created by immense pressure on alternating hard and soft layers of marine creatures and plant sediments), these form the main attraction of the area. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punakaiki Paparoa National Park is on the west coast of the South Island of New Zealand. It was established in 1987 and encompasses 306 km².[1] The park ranges from on or near the coastline to the peak of the Paparoa Ranges. A separate section of the park lies to the north and is centered at Ananui Creek. The park protects a limestone karst area. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paparoa_National_Park zyalt: Блинные скалы, Новая Зеландия Одно из самых удивительных мест в Новой Зеландии - Блинные скалы (Pancake Rocks). Находятся на западном побережье в нацпарке Папароа. Название свое они получили из-за необычной формы. Скалы напоминают стопки сложенных блинчиков. Образовались они 30 миллионов лет назад в результате эрозии известняковых пород. Их слоистость объясняется тем, что породы, из которых сложены “блинные стопки”, имеют различную плотность. Со временем вода и ветер вытесали на поднявшихся из морских глубин скалах затейливую резьбу. Вид на скалы с моей летающей камеры ). Собственно, блинная часть справа находится.
