What do doctors do when faced with patients who are dying?
BODY:
A just released article in the New Zealand Medical journal is exploring what actions GPs take in end of life medical care. It found a small number of doctors give patients drugs with the express purpose of ending their lives. Many others gave drugs or modified treatment knowing it could increase the likelihood of death. The author of the survey, Dr Phillipa Malpas, is a researcher at Auckland University's school of medicine. She is also a member of the Voluntary Euthanasia Society and a strong advocate for the legalisation of physician assisted dying.

The most good you can do
BODY:
In his book The Most Good You Can Do, philosopher Peter Singer presents a compelling argument for effective altruism. He says donations to charities should be based on the evidence of their effectiveness rather giving to whichever one tugs on the heartstrings the most. He says we can and should be more ambitious in our giving. What's more, he makes a strong case for 'earning to give' and says you don't have to have an 'ethical career' to do the most good. He's the author of more than 20 books, a professor of bioethics at Princeton University, and laureate professor, School of Historical and Philosophical Studies, University of Melbourne. Peter Singer will be in New Zealand at the Christchurch Arts Festival in association with WORD Christchurch.

Thoughts of Bill at 103
BODY:
Bill Tuckey is one New Zealander well past his centenary.
EXTENDED BODY:
“I can’t growl. There’s no reason why I don’t go on for another couple of years!” Bill Tuckey, centenarian-plus-three.

At 103 years old, Bill Tuckey of Rawene goes for a walk every day to stop “seizing up”, as he puts it. He reckons he’s got little to complain about apart from the odd ache. His wife died twenty years ago and he misses her a lot. He has also outlived two of his six children.
Diminutive, with small twinkling eyes, Bill sits in a patch of winter sun, on his porch in a comfy old chair. He‘s sounding pretty fit after all these years, and says he keeps up with the daily news. But he thinks his body doesn’t behave as well as it used too.
“My brain makes me do silly things. I think, ‘what the hell did you do that for?’”
Bill’s parents ran pubs around the country, so for some years he boarded at Kings College in Auckland, and he’s now that school’s oldest surviving pupil.He came to live in the small Northland seaside town of Rawene when he was sixteen and eventually married a local girl.
Since 1950 he’s lived in the same little house up on the main road above the town and near the hospital. He and his wife brought up their six kids here and the wife’s old dad lived with them till he died.
Bill Tuckey is determined not to go into care if he can avoid it. He enjoys the lunches that the hospital sends over to him every week day, and says that helps keep him from occupying one of the hospital’s beds. Most of his life he worked in dairy factories, but he says that industry has changed so much. He remarks that Fonterra seems to have got itself into the “poop” recently.
He can’t believe the price of milk these days, and he wonders how families cope today. Bill has lost count of his descendants, but he knows he has one great, great grandchild, with another on the way.
Bill drove a car until he was 100 and says he decided to stop before he killed someone. He misses that too.
Bill has been following the debate on euthanasia.“Sometimes I think,’ Oh God, what can you do to get out of this place!’”But he reckons he couldn’t do it himself.
He takes a regular walk in the afternoon stopping for the odd “yak”, and as long as he keeps his health he thinks he’s good for a couple more years yet.
A statistic or two;

On Census night in 2013 there were 105 men in New Zealand over the age of 100, and 453 women.
The oldest living person is believed to be a 107-year-old woman in Christchurch.
By 2050 the population is forecast to reach 5.3 million and the percentage of people 60 years of age and older will rise from just under 20-percent to almost 30-percent.
People aged 85 and over are making up a growing proportion of the 65+ group – from 10-percent in 2001 to 12-percent in 2013.

EXTENDED BODY:

John Knight reckons he’s shot and killed thousands animals during his hunting career. He spent much of it deer culling from helicopters on the West Coast but called it a day after being involved in an accident while hunting near Karamea.
After he had recovered from the injuries sustained in the helicopter accident, he bought a boat in Napier and went deep sea fishing but due to personal tragedy the business was sold and John travelled the world.
After a few years he returned to New Zealand and went back to the West Coast where he now lives a self-sufficient lifestyle and works a black sand gold claim on beach near Harihari.
The 74 year-old says “I leant a long time ago that when you retire you can do what like but you’ll probably die within a few years unless you have a hobby or an interest so I took up gold!”

Ewe Me and the Lambs
BODY:
Relda Greenhalgh farms about an hour away from Kawhia, near Mount Pirongia. It's an isolated spot to start with, but she also lives with no phone or power. Her most recent project is breeding from sheep which have some of the multiple birthing Booroola genes, so she can get four to five lambs per ewe. She says other people rear calves, she'll rear the lambs that the ewe can't manage. Along with farming, Relda sings and composes songs. One song about a possum has been accepted onto the NZ Primary School song list. In her earlier years she worked in a circus and did rodeo riding.
EXTENDED BODY:
Relda Greenhalgh says she's an expert at "making a big job from a small project".
Relda and her husband Moss Johnston farm 130 hectares about an hour north east of Kawhia in northern King Country.
Two seasons ago Moss took over running the dairy grazers, leaving Relda to look around for something to keep herself busy, and make the farm a bit more money.
She says an ideal project came up when, not too far away, her grandmother's cousins, two women in their eighties, were selling up their flock of multiple birthing sheep.
They had a Romney, Suffolk , Booroola mix, with the ewes regularly producing four or five lambs each. Booroolas were brought into New Zealand in the 1980's to improve the fertility of merinos, and these two enterprising women added some of them to their operation.
Relda collected forty ewes and two rams. She lets the ewes rear two or maybe three lambs, and bottle feeds the extras, keeping them in a pen she calls Bin Inn. "Bulk lambs."

The hope is to get at least 120 lambs from 50 ewes, and while admitting it's lots of hands on work, "it's really no different to calf rearing." In fact she even has a cow in the mixture, milking a wee jersey cow to feed the lambs once they've finished with the early lamb milk powder.
Moss has designed a special holder which is attached to the fence and lets six lambs feed from bottles at once, while some lambs are left on their mothers and just topped up with a bottle morning and night.
Relda's always wanted to be a farmer, but her second love is singing and composing music and one of her songs about a possum has been accepted onto the New Zealand Primary School's playlist. That's worth a bit of money, but not alot. "As an artist it's just a thrill to create a song. But the fact that something I've done is good enough to be taught to kiwi kids is very special."
Relda spent some time considering working in Nashville, the home of country music, but says the system didn't suit her. "I can't write a song a Tuesday because that's when they wanted me to write a song."
Rodeo riding, western rope spinning, circus work, skinning possums and shearing are also on her resume.
