WHAKATANE, New Zealand (Reuters) - Fearing the volcano could erupt again, search parties were unable to set foot on New Zealand’s White Island for eight people still missing on Tuesday, after an eruption a day earlier killed at least five and injured more than 30. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said reconnaissance flights showed no signs of life on the ash covered island, and police doubted whether any survivors would be found, as eyewitnesses detailed the horrific burns suffered by those caught up in Monday’s eruption. “The scale of this tragedy is devastating,” Ardern said in parliament. “To those who have lost or are missing family and friends, we share in your grief and sorrow and we are devastated.” Police said 47 people were on the uninhabited island, a popular sightseeing excursion for tourists, at the time of the eruption. Twenty-four came from Australia, nine from the United States, five from New Zealand, four from Germany, two each from … [Read more...] about Spitting volcano keeps search parties off New Zealand’s White Island

Washington (CNN)The Justice Department inspector general's report released Monday amounted to a massive fact-finding that shaded in contours of the Russia investigation.

Westpac readies for new tech dubbed 'ambient intelligence' The bank's new CTO wants to 'mesh' the bank's technologies together so the customer experience is seamless. Westpac's newest CTO David Walker has predicted that as the bank continues with its digital transformation journey, the next thing the bank will look at is something he has labelled "ambient intelligence"."We believe, I believe, it's about how do we mesh this into our everyday life, how do we become seamless, how do we become invisible," he said."This is going to be the next step forward from day-to-day transactions, day-to-day events. How do you become meshed so you're invisible and part of everyday life?" Walker, who only joined Westpac three months ago, boasted how this new technology would be the next step in the bank's digital journey, which has since moved from being just a physical shopfront to mobile banking.

STUFF If he'd served the maximum sentences for all his crimes, Les Orchard would have spent 5500 years in prison. With 1160 convictions, 1000 jail sentences, and a maximum jail time of over 5000 years, Les Orchard could be New Zealand's most prolific fraudster. He does it all for fun, he tells Steve Kilgallon. We meet in a McDonald's opposite Wellington's main railway station. He's wearing a striped dark shirt, a fleece jacket, and carrying a neat briefcase. Tanned from two weeks holiday in Fiji, he's in much better shape than our old file photographs show him. He looks like an accountant or a small business owner. Instead, he's quite likely New Zealand's most prolific, and certainly most unrepentant fraudster. Among his scams was, he claims, "selling" Rangipo prison to Japanese investors as a backpacker's lodge. Over a McChicken burger and a green tea, the remarkable life story of a man who has amassed 1160 convictions and 1000 sentences of imprisonment pours … [Read more...] about Les Orchard is probably New Zealand’s most prolific fraudster
