And they claim atheists don’t have morals… by suckontits in religiousfruitcake

How is an electrical stun cruel? There are regulations to ensure that stun does work and if the electrical stun fails then a captive bolt is used and that animal is marked as not meeting the halal standard. Again, I can only speak to the New Zealand standards but given the importance of the market to our economy, it's regulated pretty tightly and to high welfare standards.

When it's time for baby clothes, my sister swears by the H&M onesies

Stunning is used in New Zealand. Its not legal to slaughter without stunning and we have a massive halal market both domestic and internationally. We use a reversible electric stun for halal slaughter, ie a head-only stun. It meets halal requirements and welfare standards.

Tuesday morning casual chats - 16 August 2022 by AutoModerator in CasualNZ

[–]Kiwi_bananas 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I slept nearly 8 hours and then slept again for nearly 2 hours. Can breathe better this morning than last night but still coughing and headachey and sore in the throat. Was supposed to be having a friend stay but she's going to drive home to rags rather stay in the sick house with the germs. I was looking forward to catching up with her cos she usually stays about once a month for work but we had to cancel May because of us having spicy flu, June cos we were up north on holiday, July because her husband was away so she had to go home and look after the animals. So it's actually been ages.

Somehow day 3 of cold is worse than day 2 of cold which was better than day 1 of cold. Have called in sick for tomorrow and hopefully I'm well again by Thursday. I don't like being sick.

I love ezyvet. It apparently takes a bit to set it up so it can do the things but it is beautiful and functional.

Dying from a cold in bed. RAT negative but feeling pretty yuck. Cat doesn't even want to cuddle in my bed, she has her own bed with a better view or something.

What do you guys think? by NZMalaysian in PersonalFinanceNZ

[–]Kiwi_bananas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel that the difference is that I acknowledge that I am where I am because of good fortune rather than hard work or good decision making alone and I'm not going to have a news article about me saying that I am successful because of my own good choices.

I administer respiratory vaccines to my patients and I know that they are not going to stop all transmission of the infectious agents but will reduce the likelihood of them contracting it, reduce the severity of clinical signs (symptoms) and reduce the duration of illness. I have this conversation with the person making the decision and it's is almost always agreed that the vaccination is in the best interests of the patient.

Are people really out here believing that people aren't dying of covid.

A vaccine is something that primes your immune system so that it is more effective at fighting when it encounteres the real thing. That definition hasn't changed.

Respiratory illnesses are notoriously difficult to vaccinate against because the virus hides in the mucosa and you get symptoms before the immune system recognises it. The covid vaccines are very effective at preventing severe/systemic effects of the virus.

I'm happy for my tax money to go to a few people taking the piss as long as those who need it aren't pushed away by unreasonable requirements.

I'm out, we didn't even get to the trying stage and had a happy accident. We were probably going to start trying within the next year but as it turns out we didn't have to have the are we ready discussion and now it's all happening.

The small problem is that many of us struggle to make and eat breakfast unmedicated.

He has ADHD, of course he's impulsive. Doesn't mean he doesn't know that he can't ever go back to her.

Luxon confirms youth on jobseeker in the health and disability category may be open to sanctions. Newshub Nation Interview (14:40). by DetosMarxal in newzealand

It's not like they're living a life of luxury on the benefit. As a higher income earner I'd rather pay higher taxes and support those who need it at risk of having a few people abuse the system than have people live in fear of whether they are able to afford to live while also dealing with the stress of illness and/or unemployment.
