Evacuations of Homegrown Music Festival reportedly sparked by a tattoo

The evacuation of thousands of concert-goers from the Homegrown Music Festival last night was reportedly sparked by a tattoo.

Police said on Sunday morning that initial concerns were "to do with a tattoo" however they said the concern "was a mistake".

It has been reported the tattoo was thought to be linked to far-right ideology, however, it turned out it was traditional.

Around 5000 concertgoers were evacuated from the main stage at the Homegrown Festival in Wellington around 9.20pm.

Greedy Boeing’s Avoidable Design and Software Time Bombs

As internal and external pressures mount to hold Boeing responsible for its criminal negligence, the giant company is exerting its immense influence to limit both its past and future accountability. Boeing whistleblowers and outside aviation safety experts are coming forward to reveal the serial, criminal negligence of Boeing’s handling of its dangerous Boeing 737 Max airplanes, grounded in the aftermath of two deadly crashes that took 346 lives. Boeing, is used to having its way in Washington, D.C. For decades, Boeing and some of its airline allies have greased the wheels for chronic inaction related to the additional protection and comfort of airline passengers and airline workers.

A 13-year-old student’s school project earned him a grade of 82 percent — and a three-day suspension.

A fallen soldier battle cross is made of a service member’s rifle, their boots, and typically their helmet and dog tags, and has been practiced since before the Civil War.

MADURO: US WITHHOLDING $5BN OF MEDICAL SUPPLIES IN ‘CRIMINAL’ MEASURE

The US government is withholding US $5 billion which was meant for the purchase of medicines and raw materials used in medical production, President Nicolas Maduro claimed Wednesday.

Speaking from Miranda State, Maduro denounced that US authorities “have ‘kidnapped’ US $5 billion [in] one of the most criminal, brutal, fascist economic measures which has been seen in the economic history of the world.” “Trump is the person responsible,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was a logical, if not horrific, thing Trump has done here; after all, very ill people in a country cannot fight against its overthrow.

TWO INDIANA POLICE OFFICERS FACE FEDERAL CHARGES IN VIDEOTAPED BEATING OF HANDCUFFED MAN

This article was produced in partnership with the South Bend Tribune, a member of ProPublica’s Local Reporting Network in 2018.

A federal grand jury has indicted two Elkhart, Indiana, police officers on civil rights charges for repeatedly punching a handcuffed man last year, U.S. prosecutors announced Friday.

Elkhart County prosecutors had originally charged the two officers, Cory Newland and Joshua Titus, with misdemeanor battery in November, after the South Bend Tribune and ProPublica learned of the incident and requested video.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good that they have been indicted.!

WITH A HARD BREXIT LOOMING, UK INVITES 10,000 FOREIGN TROOPS OVER FOR MILITARY EXERCISES

As the drama over Brexit continues to reach new heights, the U.K. government has raised eyebrows by announcing that it will host 10,000 foreign troops for a massive military exercise beginning the day after Brexit had been set to take place.

The announcement of the exercise has raised the specter of a post-Brexit “martial law” scenario, given that the Theresa May-led government has been examining the possibility of declaring martial law in the country in the event of a no-deal Brexit since at least this January.

According to a government press release, the NATO-affiliated military exercise known as “Joint Warrior” will take place from March 30 until April 11 and will see the U.K. host 10,000 soldiers as well as 35 warships, five submarines, and 59 aircraft and helicopters. Thirteen countries will participate, including the United States, France and Germany, and the exercise will occur in areas spaced throughout Scotland, Wales and England.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If I were a British citizen living in the UK right now, particularly if I had kids, I would be very, very concerned, and see what can be done to get the heck out of Dodge, before the excrement hits the ventilation system.

PENTAGON: WE’RE BUYING BOEING F-15S TO KEEP 2 FIGHTER MAKERS IN BUSINESS

The decision to buy new Boeing F-15s reflects the Pentagon’s desire to keep two American companies making fighter jets into the next decade — and not the acting defense secretary’s ties to the company, a senior defense official said Friday.

The 2020 budget request contains $1.1 billion to buy eight F-15X jets, a new variant of an aircraft the Air Force last bought nearly a decade ago. The twin-tailed plane was chosen over Lockheed’s cheaper single-engine F-16 in part to keep a second U.S.manufacturer in the tactical-jet business as the Pentagon begins exploring new technologies for a new generation of warplanes, the official said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I certainly hope, for the sake of our military, that these planes won't go down like those Boeing 737 did, and that FAA inspections are in place to make sure that they do NOT go down in flames.

  PODCASTS                 SPLC IMPLODES: PRESIDENT AND LEGAL DIRECTOR RESIGN AMID SEXUAL MISCONDUCT SCANDAL

The Southern Poverty Law Center - the "vicious left-wing attack dog" used by the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon to identify "hate groups" - is unraveling.

A week after co-founder Morris Dees was ousted over sexual misconduct claims - with two dozen employees signing a letter of concern over "allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism," the head of the SPLC, Richard Cohen, as well as the organization's legal director, Rhonda Brownstein, resigned on Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For the way SPLC treated Mike and WRH over the years, color me incapable of crying one tear for this wretched tool of the left to demonize, and attempt to destroy, any blogger or site who was not in lock-step with their views.

2.3 MILLION AT RISK OF IDENTITY THEFT DUE TO FEMA NEGLIGENCE

FEMA mishandled the personal information of 2.3 million people driven out of their homes by wildfires in 2017 and hurricanes, an Inspector General report released Friday found.

During our ongoing audit of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program, we determined that FEMA violated the Privacy Act of 19741 and Department of Homeland Security policy by releasing to [contractor] the PII and SPII of 2.3 million survivors of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria and the California wildfires in 2017.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that even so long after Katrina, FEMA is still pathologically incapable of getting anything right!!

OREGON BILL WOULD CREATE BANKING ALTERNATIVE FOR CANNABIS INDUSTRY, BYPASS FEDERAL RESERVE

A bill filed in the Oregon House would establish limited state-chartered banks to serve the cannabis industry. Final passage of this legislation would remove a major federal roadblock in front of the developing industry in the state and further nullify federal prohibition in practice.

Rep. Pam Marsh (D) and Rep. Ken Helm (D) introduced House Bill 3169 (HB3169) on Feb. 28. The legislation would create a self-contained, state chartered banking system for the cannabis industry in Oregon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that Oregon is doing the right thing here; it will be interesting to see how this bill progresses in its Legislature.

Last week we started a new feature in Notes from the Field – a Friday roll-up of bizarre, often overlooked stories that my team and I think are worth following with great interest.

Boeing 737 Max Case is Latest Example of Why Industry Can’t Regulate Itself

The fatal crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, just months after the Lion Air Flight 610 crash in Indonesia, has led to governments and airlines around the world grounding their Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft amid concerns that, after two crashes killing 346 people, the model is unsafe to fly. Airlines are attempting to cancel their orders of the aircraft, citing public-safety fears. However, the 737 Max is already one of Boeing’s best sellers, with 376 planes delivered and an impressive 4,636 more ordered but undelivered. American, United and Southwest Airlines are among the top users of the model, although it is flown around the world by carriers such as Air Canada, Air China and the European giant Ryanair.

The Real Reasons American Evangelicals Support Israel

It never fails. Whenever a Republican president makes a controversial or contentious move to support Israel — such as moving the American embassy to Jerusalem, or yesterday’s decision to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights — you’ll see various “explainers” and other stories that purport to inform progressives why the American Evangelical community is so devoted to the nation of Israel.

The West Africa Squadron: The British Royal Navy’s Deadly Battle To End The Slave Trade

After Britain abolished its slave trade in 1807, the British Royal Navy launched an initiative of seafaring patrollers known as the West Africa Squadron to squander the remaining slave traders in the Atlantic.

The Gruesome Story Of Baby Face Nelson — Public Enemy Number One

COMPOST: Under investigation and up for reelection, Netanyahu’s kinship with Trump has never been clearer

JERUSALEM — He is accused of pandering to far-right elements previously considered beyond the pale even for many members of his own party, while sowing division to win votes.

He has started his own Internet broadcasts to circumvent traditional media outlets he brands “fake news,” while remaining preoccupied over their coverage of him.

Deeply concerned about leaks and disloyalty, he has tapped a team centered on family members to run his campaign.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was using Trump-style messaging and Trump-style tactics long before there was a President Trump.>>>

Trump Once Again Proves He's Netanyahu's Private Santa Claus
Gantz's hacked phone hasn't hurt his party, but Netanyahu's submarine affair may finish him – unless Trump saves him Ayelet Shaked’s perfume video is her party's Hail Mary

The prime minister goes before the cameras with a gloomy visage and film-noir lighting, his silhouette shimmering from behind, and demands that his rival reveal forthwith the contents of his smartphone, which supposedly in the hands of Iranian intelligence. If the candidate is elected, the prime minister warns, he could be subject to blackmail. A security apocalypse! A second Holocaust! When Benny Gantz is in the prime minister’s chair, he’ll give the Iranians information about Israel’s nuclear weapons, to ensure they don’t make public his personal correspondence. That’s the implicit message of the prime minister’s remarks.

What are you hiding from the public and your colleagues, Benny Gantz?>>>

Early Humans Didn’t Need Religion To Build Complex Societies, Study Claims

Philosophers of religion, historians, and social theorists have long argued that early humans — and their significant transition from small tribes to cities of more than a million people about 12,000 years ago — required having faith in “moralizing gods” in order to come together and construct those expansive, functioning societies.

“You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby”: Virginia Slims and the Women’s Lib Movement

Perhaps no other marketing campaign in the history of advertising captured the spirit of the times like the Virginia Slims’ “You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby!” campaign. The series of print and TV ads were a bit of a history lesson…showing what women endured in the past juxtaposed with a modern, liberated woman. In the midst of the women’s liberation movement, these ads served as a measurement to show women that, even though they were still fighting for total gender equality, they had come a long way over the years. March is Women’s History month, so it is only fitting that we take a look at how one company’s marketing program helped support a social movement.

Perkin Warbeck, the Great Pretender

A great mystery in English royalty is the fate of the “two princes in the Tower.” Edward and Richard, ages 12 and 10, were both too young to take over the English throne when their father, King Edward IV, died in 1483, so the crown was to go to the King’s brother, Richard, Duke of York until the true heir became of age. The Duke had his nephews placed in the Tower of London to keep them safe until coronation day. But sometime in the summer of 1483, the young princes disappeared. Their fate remains a mystery. Several years later, however, a man showed up claiming to be the long-lost younger prince, Prince Richard. His name was Perkin Warbeck and he turned out to be a great pretender with ulterior motives.
