England to wear black at World Cup - report
11:54 AM Friday Jul 15, 2011
NZ HERALD

The England rugby team look set to wear a black strip at the Rugby World Cup according to reports. The 2003 world champions, who traditionally wear white, will open their tournament by wearing a black jersey and shorts combination against Argentina in Dunedin on September 10 the Daily Mail reports. The side wore a similar strip against Australia during a match at Twickenham last year.

The paper reports the the kit will debut against Wales at Twickenham on August 6 and in three of England's warm-up games ahead of the World Cup. However if they meet the All Blacks in the tournament they would likely wear white. France wore a darker version of their traditional navy blue strip at the last World Cup which forced the All Blacks to wear a grey jersey in their quarterfinal match at Cardiff, which the French won 20-18.

'Psychic calf' McCow becomes world star
NZ HERALD
5:30 AM Monday Jul 18, 2011



Maungaturoto has never had a celebrity like it - Richie McCow's fame has extended far beyond his Northland paddock after world media picked up the story of the "psychic" calf. The Telegraph newspaper in Britain reported Richie was to "follow in the tentacles" of Paul the Octopus during this year's Rugby World Cup. Richie also made headlines in India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Australia, France, Jamaica, and Taiwan. Newspapers ranging from the Borneo Post, the Whitsunday Times, and the Caribbean Herald reported the story. Last week, the calf was hailed by his owners as an omen after being born all black except for a white mark on its forehead - which looks like a silver fern.

The Herald will put that apparently special nature to the test by presenting the calf with two containers of food prior to the All Blacks' matches. One container will be marked with a New Zealand flag, the other with the flag of the All Blacks' opposition. A German octopus called Paul gained worldwide fame during the 2010 Fifa World Cup by correctly calling the outcome of eight football matches. Paul died in October of natural causes, but had received death threats from enraged fans of the teams it correctly predicted to lose. Richie will be under even more pressure - his owner Kyle Underwood, 21, told the Herald he faced the freezing works if the All Blacks exited the Cup early.

While that threat was included in most international reports, the Daily India website chose to omit it - perhaps because of the sacred position of cattle in Hinduism. Richie has been invited to be the star attraction of next month's Auckland Pet & Animal Expo, following in the paw prints of last year's drawcard, the winner of New Zealand's Next Top Cat Model. And Mr Underwood has fielded an offer of luxury bedding for Richie from 'Bonnie the Cow', suppliers of premium animal bedding to the dairy farming sector. Mr Underwood has started a Support Richie McCow Facebook page to manage his calf's growing fame.

Cup Visitors to Get Digital Lowdown on Central Auckland
SCOOP
Thursday, 28 July 2011, 2:35 pm

Skyline and friend

World Cup visitors can now get their very own digital guide to the local ‘hood’ thanks to a new city guide, compiled by a Who’s Who of fashion, food, art, shopping and fun in downtown Auckland. The Insiders’ Guide to Downtown Auckland enables out-of-town visitors, footy fans and their travelling companions to experience the locals’ favourite haunts and hideaways and enjoy what central Auckland has to offer beyond the rugby field. The guide is available now in digital format as a FREE downloadable iPhone, iPad, Android App or online ebook. For the less tech-savvy it will also be available in a pocket-sized collector’s booklet in late August, when thousands of rugby fans from all over the world and New Zealand descend on Auckland.

The easy to use app makes it effortless for overseas visitors and out-of-towners to navigate to and from inner city hotspots – without incurring unwanted roaming charges. Users can search or 'explore' for content by 'map view' or by 'neighbourhoods' and find Insiders picks, tips and hidden city secrets. The app features more than 400 references, and detailed maps covering six must-visit downtown Auckland neighbourhoods. The Insiders – foodie Ray McVinnie, architect Nat Cheshire, photographer Karen Inderbitzen-Waller, stylist Atip Wananaruks, arts critic Hamish Keith and hospitality expert Poi Eruera – offer their picks and secrets of their favourite bars, cafes, designer boutiques, art galleries and local restaurants and eateries.

Heart of the City CEO Alex Swney says the inner city area hosts a great mix of experiences that are often ‘off the beaten track’ and wants visitors to explore more than just Queen Street and the Queens Wharf fan zone. “The Insiders’ Guide to Downtown Auckland concept is based on the principle that often the best things you experience in an unfamiliar city are those that have been recommended to you by someone who lives locally,” he says. “To make things easier for out-of-towners, the Guide divides the CBD into six districts – each with its own unique flavour – and spills the ‘what’s hot’ secrets of the locals who know this city like the back of their hand.” Alex Swney believes the guide will be a useful navigation and social tool for international and domestic visitors and locals alike.

“Come Rugby World Cup time, all Aucklanders will be asked to play tour guide at some point. Now there’s a handy prompt to help visiting friends, family or strangers make the most out of their stay – and Aucklanders might even learn some new secrets themselves.” Visiting fans can now download the free App by visiting www.biglittlecity.co.nz/InsidersGuide. Once downloaded, the App can be used anywhere without requiring a data connection, meaning it’s the ultimate no-fuss pocket guide. For those who do need to download the app whilst on the move, enhanced Wi-Fi coverage is available in the central city throughout the entire length of Queen St, Britomart, Queens Wharf, Aotea Square, North Wharf and Viaduct Harbour. A sign up is required. There are also a large number of businesses in the city with Wi-Fi access – many offer this free with a purchase.

A collector’s pocket-sized hard copy of the book will be available from August, distributed throughout downtown Auckland at various locations including retail stores, hotels, transport hubs and visitor attractions. To find out more, or to download the Insiders’ Guide to Downtown Auckland App, visit: www.biglittlecity.co.nz/InsidersGuide/

Auckland's 10-hour opening party
NZ HERALD
5:30 AM Thursday Aug 4, 2011




The Rugby World Cup will open with a bang as Auckland turns on a huge 12-minute fireworks show to mark the the start of the tournament. Details of the city's plans for the big day - on September 9 - were revealed yesterday. Auckland Mayor Len Brown told the Herald exclusively that the 10-hour opening night programme would span the Viaduct Harbour and Quay St to Queens Wharf. It would be "the party to begin all parties", but would also be family-friendly, the Mayor said. The programme begins at 4pm when 20 carved waka each carrying 30 people will paddle into the Viaduct Harbour. Dave Dobbyn will serenade the return of the rugby tournament to New Zealand by singing Welcome Home.

A mass haka by the 600 waka paddlers will be followed by an 80-minute concert by the Finn Brothers on Queens Wharf. "We will open Rugby World Cup 2011 in an unforgettable way, to make it the greatest-ever World Cup," Mr Brown said. Big screens will line the waterfront area to show what is going on in other places, including Eden Park. A 20-minute opening ceremony at Eden Park will lead up to the main spectacle - the 12-minute fireworks and lighting show. Organisers said it would be New Zealand's biggest pyrotechnics display, and landmarks and tall buildings around Auckland would be used for lighting displays.

Most of the World Cup television coverage would be focused on rugby pitches, and the 12-minute window was a unique chance to showcase Auckland to the world, they said. "In this very short space of time, we will be introducing ourselves as a true international city," Mr Brown said. "We're going to do the country and Auckland proud." It was a segment he was particularly looking forward to, he said. "Like any Kiwi, I like that. There's something about us - we like the flames." The opening whistle would also be poignant, Mr Brown said. "That's going to be the culmination of the hard work of a lot of people, going back to Helen Clark and Tana Umaga and the pitch they put up against all the odds to get this."

Organisers said people should arrive early to the waterfront because only 50,000 would be allowed into the celebrations. Dane Rumble and Midnight Youth will feature in post-match entertainment, finishing about 2am. Up to 2000 volunteers and staff will be helping to run the World Cup programme. Organisers saying anyone going to the opening game at Eden Park, kicking off at 8.30pm, should skip the waterfront celebrations and go directly to the stadium. Mr Brown said the World Cup programme, particularly closing off Quay St for pedestrians, would become a blueprint for future events and for the waterfront. "The greatest legacy of the Rugby World Cup is to return our waterfront to our community as a place where you socialise," he said.

It is a very exciting time for us in Auckland. Our city has been transformed and is already starting to feel like a different city. One by one areas are starting to open up and will leave the city with a legacy that forms the foundation of better things to come.

AOTEA SQUARE and EDEN PARK STADIUM opened in October up last year. The Auckland Airport is finished and the new 13 storey HOTEL recently opened for business.

On the 6th of August our new waterfront opens up - complete with new boulevards, heritage trams which will later be converted to light rail so that the new office workers and residents can travel into the city centre, an indoor events centre, a new pedestrian/cycle bridge which connects the city centre with the waterfront and a new park (I have been able to get a sneak peek, pics below). On the same day is the grand opening of a new motorway which will help alleviate some of the traffic.

21 August sees the launch of our new buses and bus routes which are set to revolutionise the way we travel around Auckland. Integrated ticketing was launched a few months back and is proving to be a huge success.

3 September is the unveiling of our new world class ART GALLERY which will be followed by QUEEN'S WHARF aka Party Central.

The downtown area is being transformed - many streets are becoming shared spaces which will make Auckland a more pedestrian friendly city and at the same time we are striving to become the world's most liveable city as well. It is going to great to not have to live in a construction zone any more and we look forward to welcoming the World



The TRAM SHED .....

We want this World Cup to be as much for children as for adults, therefore we have created a park in the new waterfront called SILO PARK. The 6 pack Silo's will later be incorporated into a new building and the single silo will be used for outdoor movies, wall climbing, a viewing deck and a cafe. Please remember that there is still some work going on there and this isn't the finished product Enjoy the pics ....

JELLICOE STREET forms the main spine of the project and this is where the tram will run. A new office building is being constructed here and this is where you will find Auckland's Fish Market. NORTH WHARF will be lined with cafes, restaurants and bars where you can watch the fishermen off-load their catch of the day.

THE VIADUCT EVENTS CENTRE is our new indoor exhibition centre and will provide visitors with a viewing deck across the Waitemata Harbour and the city skyline. KARANGA PLAZA (which means to welcome) is the arrival point from the city centre. Here you will find an information kiosk, tidal steps that lead down into the water, the Wynyard Crossing cycle and pedestrian bridge and a 5 star hotel is planned for the site.

WYNYARD CROSSING will effectively link the city centre, the East Waterfront (which was constructed for the America's Cup) and the new West Waterfront. The plan is to extend the tram line across a new bridge and into the city centre.

TE WERO ISLAND used to be a huge parking lot but parts of it have been reclaimed for pedestrians. This will be the main thoroughfare between Queen's Wharf (Party Central) and the new waterfront.

Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium opens.

image hosted on flickr


HDR Inside the Stadium Panorama
by Pommedan (Back... Just), on Flickr

Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium was officially opened, blessed and made ready for business early yesterday, just two years after piles for the building were driven into the ground beside the Otago harbour. Prime Minister John Key did the honours at a stadium he said would become known as "the house of pain and pleasure": pain for visiting football teams and pleasure for its users. The service began shortly after 7am, with a mana whenua dawn blessing. Mr Key, Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull, Carisbrook Stadium Trust chairman Malcolm Farry and officials entered the stadium to a rousing haka by pupils from King's and Queen's High Schools.

Mr Key unveiled a plaque that read "My success is not the success of one, but because of the success of many": a Maori proverb suggested by Ngai Tahu. He told a crowd of about 500 at the opening the stadium was "incredibly important" for the city of Dunedin, and for Otago. He noted the $15 million the Government had provided for the venue, which he said had been given because the future of the city was linked to the strength of the University of Otago, and the stadium was "integral to the growth of the university and the medical school". "It was my view the Government should step up to the plate."

Mr Key said there was always controversy when a project of the stadium's size was built, but in his experience, it died away once the project was completed. Mr Cull strayed slightly from his speech notes, when he said the stadium had been built "pretty much on time and on budget. It is a phenomenal achievement, by any measure, very worthy of celebration." He paid tribute to Mr Farry, and the trust, which had been behind the project "all the way through the entire process". The vision of a stadium catering for the needs of the region had been "vindicated" by the early booking of Elton John. "More headline acts are in the pipeline, I understand," he said.

The stadium was built at a lower cost than any other in New Zealand, with a roof, "that will enable us to be the best - not the biggest - but the best stadium in New Zealand", he said. The formalities were followed by entertainment from the City of Dunedin Choir, City of Dunedin Pipe Band, John McGlashan College Pipe Band and vocalists Kawiti Waetford and Janine Weatherly.

Work is progressing rapidly at Party Central (Queen's Wharf) and the "cloud" is becoming a landmark loved by many. This will be the hub during the RWC 2011 where lots of schmoozing and business deals will be made. Queen's EWharf is located next door to the Downtown Ferry Terminal and across the road from the underground Britomart Train Station. I personally can't wait to explore the area when it is complete.
