The romantic stories of New Zealand Bachelor and Bachelor contestants unfold | Instant News

I mean … LOOK at those smiles of love! Video / TVNZ

I’m not going to ramble on here because you’ve suffered enough – so let me kick off this “After Party” recap by saying, Shivani and Paul are the cutest couple I have ever seen.

And now that I’ve dropped the bomb, let’s discuss it.

Shivani and Paul walked out into the mansion’s grounds together and at once my partner’s radar buzzed. Apparently so is Art’s eye candy because she pulled the suspicious happy couple over for a chat and that’s when the treasure chest of love is FINALLY opened, folks.

Love is in the air, and the two are nowhere to be found.
Love is in the air, and the two are nowhere to be found.

“I heard through the grapevine that you guys have been hanging out.” Art started the conversation and immediately the two lovebirds started giggling like teenagers in an attempt to make my heart burst.

“We were just hanging out for a bit,” Paul said into the confession camera, but the blush on his cheeks revealed all the secrets he wanted to hide.

So how did this happen, you may ask? Remember when Paul taught Bachelorettes how to barbecue? Yes so, Shivani was sent home that night and by the magic of the universe, the two sat together on the plane where their affection took off (got it?).

Sounds a bit like a Hollywood rom-com but I LOVE IT and while the two haven’t confirmed their bf / gf status yet, it doesn’t seem like their love bubble is going to burst anytime soon.

In other After Party news, Annie cries feeling like an outsider and even her OG bully girl Lydia is hesitant about it. Ouch. Maybe Nikki was right when she said, “catch that guy, get rid of the girls.” Or in Annie’s case, losing men and women.

Vaz took off his shirt a million times then complained about being recognized as the man who took off his shirt – that line is obsolete the first time you say it, Vaz. Move over.

But all attention is turned away from a shirtless figure when Nikki – an eager cupid, drags him and Georgia away to chat in a love corner. That didn’t go well, obviously, because Vaz later informed the confession cameras that he was going to sneak into DM Negin.

* Eye roll * There’s nothing I can say about that.

Devaney decides his history – and his current feelings – because Vaz needs to know and he won’t leave her alone, which of course means he doesn’t want a bar for her because men never want what they can have.

Trust Dev, he is not the one who escapes.
Trust Dev, he is not the one who escapes.

Vaz walked away from him and the wise Lexie said what every best friend said to him when he was drunk at least once, “Devaney, you have to stop it. You have to stop it.” Thank God for Lexie.

And to cut this short, since not much happened, Chanel and Moses went for a walk where Chanel asked why Moses didn’t tell her she liked him.

Moses, the boy who hesitated, broke his heart a second time by saying “honestly, at that moment, I didn’t know how I felt about you.”

Ughhhhhhhhh really Moses?

But that doesn’t bother Chanel too much as it turns out that this cheerful gem of a woman has found herself a man.

“I deserve someone to tell me every day that I am right for them and I have them. I became a man and I was very happy.”

Cheers ladies!
Cheers ladies!

Cheers for it my queen and cheers for the end of another Bachelor / Bachelor season.

The Brains Trust: Dementia – ‘That’s a secret we’re trying to hide’ | Instant News

Dementia is perhaps the biggest and worst understood problem in New Zealand. This is rapidly growing in our aging population – almost everyone will have a family member or know someone suffering from some form of the disease. It is already the number one cause of death in the UK and for women in Australia and a similar trend is likely to occur here.

But we don’t talk much about dementia. Maybe it’s understandable because the conversation can hurt. Many patients find their own children and grandchildren unrecognizable because they are reduced to childlike states with only memories from their youth. The family members in turn watched helplessly as they got lost by their parents and grandparents. They see their loved ones become frustrated and frightened because they have forgotten how to perform basic daily rituals.

Herald reporters Mike Scott and Carolyne Meng-Yee decided it was time to start talking about the “D-word,” as Meng-Yee put it, in The Brains Trust, our six-part online video series funded by Broadcast New Zealand. In the article below, she reminisces about how she and Scott came up with a plan to uncover the disease and tells the story of a devoted caregiver and scientist looking for a cure. And as Meng-Yee explained, for him and Scott this was more than just a story – it was personal.

Covid 19 coronavirus: Experts are calling for stricter checks on travelers after hundreds of people arrived in NZ and left for Australia | Instant News

One expert called for stricter checks on travelers leaving New Zealand as soon as arriving here after receiving news that hundreds of new arrivals had departed for Australia.

NZ statistics have confirmed that the 549 people who arrived in New Zealand on or after October 1 left for Australia in October or November.

Most of them (492) are residents of New Zealand, and many are believed to be flight crew and business people who still travel regularly despite the Covid ban.

But Professor Shaun Hendy of the University of Auckland, who has become an example of the risks of international travel during the Covid-19 pandemic, said the figures show the need to track down all those who leave quarantine in case of another outbreak in the community.

“We need to be better at following up with travelers and understanding where they are going,” he said.

“If we ever consider a situation where we ask for a follow-up [in a community outbreak], then we want to be able to ask people to come for the test and for further interaction with the border system, so it’s important to know whether they remain in New Zealand or not. “

The latest figures come after Australian authorities said that 12 people had been quarantined at Auckland’s Pullman Hotel at the same time as people who contracted Covid there last month. traveling to Sydney.

Three of them traveled from Sydney to Hong Kong, two went to Queensland and seven others lived in New South Wales.

NZ statistics say the 549 people who arrived in New Zealand after October 1 left in October or November – 39 in October and 510 in November, the latest figures available.

Australia allows New Zealanders to traveling without quarantine to New South Wales and the Northern Territory from 16 October, to South Australia from 20 October, to Victoria from 9 November and to Queensland from 12 December.

New Zealanders traveling to Western Australia still have to quarantine for 14 days.

The 549 people who arrived in New Zealand after October 1 and traveled to Australia before the end of November represented 2 percent of the 24,133 people who arrived in New Zealand in those two months, and a similar proportion of the 27,106 who left New Zealand. country in those months.

Nearly all (492) of the 549 people were New Zealand residents, with only 57 residents of other countries entering New Zealand after 1 October and leaving on 30 November.

New Zealand Statistics population indicators manager Tehseen Islam said the 549 arrivals who traveled to Australia included flight crew, who had to undergo Covid tests every seven days but do not have to be quarantined for 14 days.

Covid Response Minister Chris Hipkins said he had asked officials “to consider the entire process and to explore whether the system could be modified so that those who depart quickly for Australia can and should pay a premium to stay in MIQ”.

“I don’t see any evidence of specific motivation why people travel to Australia within months of landing in New Zealand,” he said.

“There may be various reasons, and travelers can include any number of New Zealand nationals.

“We need to strike the right balance in recognizing people’s rights to freedom of movement by fairly managing the MIQ’s limited resources and the Kiwi’s right to return.”

Switzerland- Covid Review: not all of our predictions are wrong | Instant News

(MENAFN – Swissinfo)

One year after the pandemic, we still have many questions. Here in Geneva, we can ask those questions of world leaders in the field of public health.

When can we get vaccinated? When can we meet friends again? When, oh when, will this virus give up?

It is very interesting, reporting on Covid-19 over the past 12 months, to reassess some of their answers one year later.

In this week’s episode of the podcast, Inside Geneva, I look back on interviews conducted nearly a year ago with Margaret Harris of WHO, and with Vinh Kim Nguyen, an emergency doctor with MSF who is also co-director of the Geneva Graduate Institute’s Global Health Center.
