Together at home and at work – meet five couples who like each other and complement each other’s careers in politics, entertainment and hospitality.

He left the role in 2018 to become Air New Zealand’s head of government relations and is now head of corporate affairs for the airline.

Belich, who represented the Labor Party in the Epsom seat won by David Seymour, was a lawyer and practiced volunteer attorney in Community Law for many years.

She and Kirton live in downtown Auckland with their two children who are elementary school aged and are awaiting the birth of another child.

Health and Diplomacy

Another new Labor List MP, Dr Ayesha Verrall, also has a partner to complement her work.

Verrall rose to national prominence when infectious disease specialists audited New Zealand’s contact tracing system and recommended improvements during our first Covid-19 lockdown.

His colleague, Alice Revell, has an equally impressive biography as an international lawyer and New Zealand diplomat.

Revell is the lead negotiator for New Zealand for a UN treaty on marine biodiversity outside national jurisdiction. He is also a former legal advisor to the New Zealand Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York.

Lovers On Screen and Off

They were once a married couple on A Place to Call Home and real-life husband and wife Sara Wiseman and Craig Hall are both vying for the award at this year’s New Zealand Television awards.

Wiseman was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in One Lane Bridge, and Hall for Best Actor for Head High.

It’s been a busy year for the talented acting duo. Wiseman also starred in the Kiwi mini series The Sounds and the Australian TV series Between Two Worlds, in which Hall also starred. He has also played in the Aussie Halifax mini-series: Retribution, and Bondi Slayer.

Behind the duo of dream cameras

Also up for the gong at the NZTV Awards are behind the scenes husband and wife Claire McCarthy and Denson Baker.

McCarthy was nominated for Best Director for the TV mini-series The Luminaries and best cinematographer Baker for Eleanor Catton Man Booker’s award-winning book adapted.

Collaboration is nothing new for couples. They worked together on the romantic film The Waiting City, which is set in India and the 2018 film Ophelia, which is based on a reimagined Hamlet. Baker also worked on The Dark Horse.

McCarthy will begin working as director for Naomi Watts in the US film The Burning Man.

Husband and Wife Hospo

2020 has been the year when celebrity chefs Josh Emett and Helen Cranage fulfill their old dream of opening a restaurant together.

While Emett has spent the last decade forming partnerships at various restaurants, he and Cranage returned from England this year and are joined at two places in Auckland, the Oyster Inn in Waiheke and the recently opened Onslow on Princes St in the city center.

Cranage, who previously worked in international finance, has been by Emett’s side at every turn and as they raised their son. But finally it was time to put both their names on an equal footing on these projects.

Onslow is a place they have wanted to create together since they first met. At last week’s opening, it was Cranage’s chance to shine as the two shared a podium to greet guests.

The UK born Cranage welcomes guests in a beautifully articulated te reo and her husband takes pride as a beating from his business partners. They will be busy this summer with their two restaurants across from Waitematā.

Milan fashion week: Armani presents the Spring / Summer 2021 catwalk on prime-time TV amid COVID – fashion and trends | Instant News

Forty-five years after founding his fashion group, Giorgio Armani came up with a new way to showcase his latest catwalk creation on Saturday – a prime-time TV show.

The show is one of the highlights of Milan’s fashion week, which has hosted a mix of live and virtual catwalks for its first edition since coronavirus restrictions have made the mix of glamor, celebrity and hype at such events even more complicated.

86-year-old Armani, affectionately called “King Giorgio” in his native Italy, presents men and women with their “Timeless Thoughts” Spring / Summer 2021 show using soft pastels, floral prints, and intricate embroidery.

The show, preceded by a short documentary about Armani’s career curated by his own designer, is broadcast on Italy’s free-to-air La7, one of the country’s main channels, with the aim of opening up to a wider public.

While no traditional VIP vanguard compliments the design, Armani’s signature clean and elegant style is showcased: trouser suits, short jackets with round collars, silk and organza blouses in pale grays, beige, light blues and greens, and sparkling nights. to wear.

“Out there, hell is gone, I’d rather think that we could stay outside,” Armani said of his sober design as he spoke to reporters at the collection preview.

He said travel restrictions made the presentation of male and female designs more sensible, although it is too early to say whether he will follow that model again in the future.

“We will have to wait anxiously to see what will happen,” said the designer, who has announced that he will be putting on his next haute couture show in Milan rather than Paris.

Italy imposed one of the strictest and longest lockdowns, starting in early March. Now new infections are just under 2,000 a day, rising again, but below the levels seen in France, Spain and the UK.

Its fashion and textiles industries, with a turnover of 95 billion euros ($ 98 billion) and 600,000 workers are the second most important across the country, were shaken from the decline in sales.

According to the Confindustria business lobby, women’s clothing exports fell 24% in the first six months of this year.

The Armani collection ends with a model in a night robe with a black cat face in a silver sequined vest, a tribute to Armani’s pet, Angel, who died in July.

Scattering snowfall and record-breaking low temperatures | Instant News

As much as we dislike, we sometimes feel winter in May, and today will be one of those days. Although we can start the day with partial sunlight, scattered snow will adorn the scenery this afternoon. Interestingly, today’s snowfall record is a trail, set in 1947, so that every piece we get officially at Metro Airport, even busy, will tie our daily snowfall record! This will be another windy day, with strong northern winds at 10 to 20 mph, and altitude struggling only to reach its lowest point until mid-40 (5 to 7 degrees Celsius).

Lakeshore Flood Advisory remains valid until 4:00 Saturday for our Lake Huron coastline area.

Today’s sunrise is at 6:19 a.m., and today’s sunset is at 8:41 p.m.

The snowfall gradually diminished until Friday night, with the sky partly cloudy after that. Temperature has fallen to record-breaking levels, coming out of the mid to upper 20s (-3 to -2 degrees Celsius). Detroit’s official low record on Saturday morning is 28 degrees (-2 degrees Celsius), set in 1983. The north winds become west at 8 to 13 mph.

Prolonged sub-freezing temperatures have prompted the National Weather Service to issue Freeze Alerts Friday night to all except Sanilac District until 9:00 Saturday night. Gentle vegetation will be killed tonight, unless covered or taken to a house or garage.

Saturday itself begins with sunlight, but clouds grow during the day and at least part of the afternoon will be cloudy before the sky is clear before nightfall. Highs near 50 degrees (10 degrees Celsius), and it will be a windy day.

Clouds rise Saturday night, with lows in the mid-30s (1 to 2 degrees Celsius).

As for Mother’s Day, computer models come to a somewhat better deal in scenarios where bathing will develop (sorry, ma’am). Height must rise slightly higher … to the mid 50s (13 degrees Celsius).

It may rain Sunday night, with low in the mid to 30s (3 degrees Celsius).

Every first shower Monday morning will end, with the sky becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. Highs in the low 50s (11 degrees Celsius).

Partly sunny on Tuesday, with highs in the mid-50s (8 degrees Celsius).

Most sunny starts on Wednesday, before the clouds rise late in the afternoon. The highest rebounded to a low level of the 60s (16 degrees Celsius).

Rain is possible on Thursday, with the highest in the mid 60’s (18 degrees Celsius).

Bathing and thunderstorms may occur on Friday, with altitudes approaching 70 degrees (21 degrees Celsius).

Computer models disagree about next weekend, but it seems we are mostly sunny Saturday, and (hopefully) partly cloudy on Sunday. The second highest day is above 60s (20 degrees Celsius).

VHSL makes it official, canceling all sports and spring activities Sports | Instant News

The Virginia High School League Executive Committee chose Thursday to cancel the spring sports season for the remainder of the 2019-20 calendar year because of the continuing threat from COVID-19.

The previous league had opened up the possibility of staging an event or tournament during the summer after Governor Ralph Northam’s decision in March to cancel K-12 schools for the remainder of the academic year.

VHSL sponsors the following spring sports: baseball, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis and track and outdoor fields.

“This very difficult decision was made by knowing the great disappointments experienced by students, athletes, participants in academic activities, coaches, administrators, parents and their communities,” VHSL executive director Billy Haun said in a news release.

“We are very sorry about that [seniors] who will not have the opportunity to represent their school or wear their school uniform one last time after years of hard work and devotion. “

Haun said the VHSL considered the health of the participants and audience as a major factor in the committee’s vote.

“Every option for the spring sports season will require that COVID-19 is no longer a threat and does not pose a health risk to our student-athletes or the community,” Haun said.

“Unfortunately, the situation has not changed and it is not possible to have spring without putting people in danger.”
