Turnbull Library admits it bought a fake Lindauer
BODY:
The country's national heritage collector, the Alexander Turnbull Library bought a fake Lindauer painting, despite being warned by an expert that is was likely to be a forgery.
EXTENDED BODY:
The country's national heritage collector, the Alexander Turnbull Library bought a fake Lindauer painting, despite being warned by an expert that is was likely to be a forgery.
In 2013 the Turnbull Library paid $75,000 at an auction for the portrait of a Maori man named as as Hoani or Hamiora Maioha, and signed G.Lindauer.
Before making the purchase, the library got the advice of colonial art expert Roger Blackley of Victoria University, who told them it was obviously not genuine. "I said it looks incredibly strange and is a fake".
But the Turnbull curator decided to discount Mr Blackley's advice, and instead get the views of its in-house experts, who believed it was a genuine Lindauer, and the purchase went ahead.
Gottfried Lindauer (1839-1926) was New Zealand's best-known painter of Maori subjects in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries - known for the accuracy of his portraits - which is why they are sought after historical records.
The library put the portrait in its catalogue and also provided an image of it to the New Zealand Listener in 2014 for a major article on New Zealand portraiture.
However, earlier this year Auckland Art gallery conservator, Sarah Hillary analysed the painting as part of her preparation for a book on Lindauer. Her forensic study indicated that there was no way the work could be a Lindauer as it contained titanium dioxide, which was not available as an artist's pigment when Lindauer was painting. She also pointed out that the brushwork was quite rough compared with the careful brushwork of Lindauer.
Chief librarian for the Alexander Turnbull Library, Chris Szekely said the revelation was particularly disappointing for the library, and the police had been informed.
"We backed our own judgement in the face of an assessment from an external expert. Art historian Roger Blackley had commented to us on the painting's strange appearance. We listened to his views but proceeded with the auction. Differing opinions are not uncommon in these matters, and in this instance we went with the library's in-house expertise. It is now evident that we were wrong."
Chris Szekely and Sarah Hillary spoke with Nine to Noon.

Former gang member and inmate says prison rehab doesn't work
BODY:
Fa'afete Taito was a member of the King Cobra gang, he was also a P addict and served over 14 years in prison for a range of crimes including aggravated robbery and drug dealing. He says the anti-violence and other rehabilitation programmes in mens' prisons are a waste of time, particularly for gang members who go straight back into a world of violence both inside and outside prison. He told a Prison Forum at the weekend that the only way to genuinely create change is to start in the community in which the men live.
EXTENDED BODY:
Former prisoner and gang member, and career criminal Fa'afete Taito has told a prison forum why he believes the current rehabilitation system is failing.
Fete Taito was a member of the King Cobra gang, he was also a P addict and served over 14 years in prison for a range of crimes including aggravated robbery and drug dealing. He says the anti violence and other rehabilitation programmes in mens' prisons are a waste of time - and the only way to genuinely create change is to start in the community in which the men live.
Six years ago Fete Taito turned his life around - He severed ties with everyone in his life, bar his immediate family - moved to a different part of Auckland and got himself off P.
He recently graduated from Auckland University with a Bachelor of Arts degree double majoring in Sociology and Māori and will continue with post graduate study next year.
At the weekend he spoke about his experiences at an Auckland forum on the prison system in the 21st century which was attended by prison researchers, MP's, youth workers, psychologists, criminologists and some department of corrections staff.

Houston, a city of 2.4 million people that has no zoning regulations, which leads to two consequences: affordable housing and endless sprawl.
Yet, even without zoning, greening the city is possible.
Honey traveled back to New Zealand via San Francisco, which has a different predicament.
In San Francisco, the venture capital economy is driving up the cost of renting, which mean people are renting out bunks at outrageous prices
But, on a lighter note, he discovered Houston might be the best place to build a real Jurassic Park.
He talks to Katrhyn Ryan about the differences between the cities, and his trip to the USA.

Why We Work - Barry Schwartz
BODY:
How we work isn't working according to psychologist Barry Schwartz who says we focus too much on the pay packet and not enough on what makes work satisfying. In his new book Why We Work Schwartz argues for radical revisions to the way we think about work. Money, he says, is not a effective motivator but job satisfaction is. The book suggests ways to change work culture so that employees stop dreading work and enjoy it instead.
EXTENDED BODY:
Going to work just for a paycheck is an outdated concept that needs to change according to psychologist Barry Schwartz who says everyone, from hospital janitors to factory workers, can and should, get more out of work than money.
“People want more than a paycheck from their work. The structure of work has largely made it impossible to get anything but a paycheck” Schawrtz tells Jesse Mulligan.
In his new book, Why We Work, Schwartz identifies ways to build a better workplace and transform beliefs about what motivates employees.
Adam Smith, the so called "Father of Capitalism", established the idea that people are basically lazy according to Schwartz .
Smith’s idea is that workers “would rather lie on a couch all day watching rugby. If you want them to do anything you have to pay them” says Schwartz.
And 200 years ago, Smith’s idea turned into reality.
“The workplace got transformed into the image Adam Smith had” Schwartz explains. “If all you see around you is people showing up at the factory door and doing the same monotonous thing day after day all of a sudden his theory about why people work comes true.
If that is the only job you can get, then why else would you work expect for a paycheck?”
The result, Schwartz says, is very low job satisfaction.
“A Gallup Poll found that 90% of people are either unengaged or disengaged from their work across the world. Only 1-10 is enthusiastic about showing up for work everyday."
Schwartz believes the call centre or order fulfillment center is the equivalent of the factory of Smith’s day and research suggests there is a way to make even the most mundane jobs fulfilling beyond the paycheck.
“If you want work places that work well you want to create work that people want to do. You want to give people a chance to use their discretion and autonomy. You want what they do from day to day to vary. You want to show them you respect them so you aren’t always looking over their shoulders."
Schwartz hopes millennials, people born in the early 1980’s to the year 2000, will change the nature of the workplace.
“I am hopeful talented millennials won’t stand for the kind of work that the rest of us have just resigned ourselves to."

China Revisited - a tribute to Jack Body
BODY:
Outstanding New Zealand composer Jack Body passed away earlier this year, so a tribute concert is being performed by the new Zealand String Quartet with an upcoming tour to China to follow. Lynda Chanwai-Earle meets the NZSQ to find out more about "China Revisited" and Jack's legacy of collaborations with Asia.
EXTENDED BODY:
Composer Jack Body 1944-2015.
He was great fun, had a twinkle in his eye and a rather wicked, ironic sense of humour at all times. Loved to party but a serious repository of music of other cultures. – Gillian Ansell, Viola, NZSQ.

Outstanding New Zealand composer Jack Body passed away earlier this year – so a tribute performance to honour Jack’s musical legacy in China and around Asia was performed with the New Zealand String Quartet, which included a traditional Chinese tea ceremony before and after the concert.
China Revisited – A concert inspired by Jack Body was a one off special performance by the NZSQ, which took place at St Andrews Church on the Terrace in the heart of Wellington’s CBD to a respectfully well attended audience.
The traditional Chinese tea ceremony made a beautiful and somewhat surreal start to the performance in its hushed silence, before Jack’s 2009 composition Bai Sanxian began.
Presented by the Confucius Institute at Victoria University, the concert recognised Jack’s legacy, his unique compositions and creative collaborations with China and other countries in Asia over the last four decades.
At the concert in addition to Jack’s music, the Quartet performed the works of New Zealand’s finest composers John Psathas, Gillian Whitehead and Beijing based Virtuoso pianist and composer Gao Ping, a long-time friend of Jack Body’s.
Looking back at his extraordinary music career Jack Body began at Auckland University. He also studied in Cologne and at the Institute of Sonology, Utrecht. During 1976-77 he was a guest lecturer at the Akademi Musik Indonesia, Yogyakarta, and from 1980 to 2010 he lectured at the Victoria University of Wellington School of Music, now Te Kōkī New Zealand School of Music.
Jack’s music covered many genres including; orchestral music, solo and chamber music, music-theatre, music for dance and film as well as electroacoustic music. He was passionate about the music and cultures of Asia, particularly Indonesia. As an ethnomusicologist Jack published recordings that included traditional and rarely heard music from Indonesia and China.
Jack Body was the Music Consultant for the Confucius Institute at Victoria University since it opened in 2010. Through his deep interest in and enthusiasm and love for China, the musical and cultural programme took off.
During China Revisited Jack’s 2003 composition Saetas 1 “Wolf/Tchaikovsky” performed between the works from the other composers. The concert finale was Jack’s 1987 composition; Three Transcriptions; Long-ge, Ramandiana, Ratschenitsa.
Afterwards I spoke with Jack’s partner Yono Soekarno. Yono remembered Jack’s passion for traditional Asian music particularly from China and Indonesia going back as far back as the 1970’s and 80’s. Yono reminisced over Jack’s collaborations with the renowned Kronos Quartet in 1997 who “were like visiting rock stars at the time”. In the classical world, the Kronos Quartet had huge international following.
The concert was perhaps a bittersweet experience for Yono especially when they played Long-ge at the end, as part of Three Transcriptions and the piece Jack had composed for the Kronos Quartet in the first place."This is special for me because it’s quite nostalgic, everything brings back memories; it’s lovely to hear everything again. And now to hear it again, in intimate surroundings, makes you want to cry."
Wen Powles Director of Victoria University’s Confucius Institute tells me that Jack probably invented cross-culturalism before it was even thought off. "We will always have Jack as our inspiration. We want to give more longevity to his vision. Because of jack we are very keen to support NZ composers who are interested in working on Asian or Chinese music in particular. The institute are buying an entire suite of traditional Chinese instruments and we will bring Chinese composers to teach."
I spoke with two members of the NZSQ; cellist Rolf Gjelsten and on viola Gillian Ansell who remembered Jack embracing many cultures through music:
Totally unique creature Jack was. Larger than life, seemed to love everything he did. Very enthusiastic, very sincere and passionate about what he did and what he wrote in his search for the meaning of his own music and his fascination with other cultures.

Following this concert the NZSQ will tour to Hangzhou, China, from the 15th of December this year to perform at a commemorative concert and conference organised in Jack’s honour by his Chinese colleagues and friends.
Gillian Whitehead explained how Jack inspired her new work “Quartet” which will debut in the NZSQ tour to China in December this year. "He was a wonderful entrepreneur. He did so much for the country, bringing other cultures into the country and taking New Zealand’s music overseas."
NZSQ manager Christine Argyle showed me the beautiful publication of Jack’s biography sitting next to the elegant objects of the tea ceremony and CD’s of the NZSQ and Jack body’s work.
She tells me that the tour to China will include a conference and concerts, the theme being “transcriptions”, music that has been transcribed from folk music by NZ composers and then developed into larger pieces.
“One concert will be all Jack Body and then another concert with other NZ Composers who have worked with Asian music. He has influenced so many composers in New Zealand. He has brought to NZ this incredible cross-cultural influence into NZ music – that’s his big legacy, bringing in other cultures and blending these cultures into the New Zealand tradition and inspiring the next generation to do that too.”
Jack will be forever remembered through his music, he was able to express his personality and openness to other cultures in a very powerful way that will hopefully eliminate prejudiced in the world. – Rolf Gjelsten, Cello, NZSQ.

More information can be found about this extraordinary composer at Jack Body. Among the more delightful tributes on Jack Body’s website is renowned Chinese composer Tan Dun wishing Jack a happy 70th birthday:
At the end of this Voices podcast we have included the full track from the first of Jack Body’s Three Transcriptions (1994) performed by the NZ String Quartet; Helene Pohl on violin, Douglas Beilmanon Violin, Gillian Ansell on the viola and Rolf Gjelsten on cello from their album notes from a journey.

That was the handwritten message on Horomona Potene Mason's first sign when he began begging thirteen years ago, but these days you're likely to see: Hi there people, any spare donations? I'm trying to look for work.
It's the middle of winter when I meet Horomona Potene Mason (Horo) and he's rugged up in a hoodie and a heavy blanket covering his lap; a blue holdall the size of a body bag, beside him. The 28-year-old is friendly and happy to chat.
"I knew nothing about begging until I got to Auckland where a friend of mine got me to sit down with him and hold a sign. Eventually people started dropping down spare change [and] one chap from Australia put down all his pokie money - $900."
Horo has travelled between Auckland and Wellington to beg and it has become part of his daily routine to head out onto the streets to take a spot on the pavement. He goes into town come rain or shine and is content, he says, as long as there's adequate shelter.
In the past, Horo made up to $40 a day, but that has all changed since the increase in people on the street. More often than not, passers-by will drop hot food, as opposed to money. Horo says he's grateful for whatever he's given.
"I don't sit in the same area twice and it's first in first serve. Thirty dollars is sufficient for me to say, that's enough for the day and come back at night."
Horo attended Mana College and has worked in retail. He also speaks fluent Te Reo and dreams of becoming a Māori journalist. But life-changing events have presented a number of obstacles that have played a contributing role in his situation.
His mother died of cancer when he was 12-years-old and he was subsequently fostered out to family that he didn't know, and a situation of abuse. He has also been dealing with psychosis and schizophrenia, which runs in the family, and has spent time in and out of psychiatric wards. More recently, he has left a problem with alcohol behind him.
The details about Horo's past are only the tip of the iceberg, and the rest is difficult to fathom.
Horo will be the first to tell you that life on the streets isn't easy, but he's come to accept begging as a way of life, and believes that it offers a sense of community and a place to belong: "I feel more down to earth with people that are in the same predicament as me [and] since that first time, I've never given up…it makes ends meet."
One of the only problems that Horo has encountered - and one that has become more frequent with the increase in people begging - is beggars stealing from each other when their backs are turned.
'A complex phenomenon'
"Street begging's a really complex social phenomenon [and] I don't think there's one simple explanation for the growth," Director of Down Town Community Ministry (DCM) in Wellington, Stephanie McIntyre says.
She says it's not surprising that beggars have made an appearance on New Zealand streets, and that we've been relatively slow to catch up with other countries around the world. What has changed in recent years, is that begging has become acceptable and people are showing signs of generosity here, she says.
"It's reached a level of social acceptability [and] I think there are some generous people who almost prefer to give some money to an individual, rather than an organisation."
Other contributing factors to the rise in begging have come via increases in rent and unaffordable accommodation over the past five years. McIntyre says changes to the benefit system mean that people have also been transferred from Invalid and Sickness benefits onto Job Seeker benefits.
It's a problem that often leaves people without any income for periods of time, she says.
McIntyre sees different cases coming through DCM - an organisation that helps people in need with a variety of services - which include finding accommodation for people, gaining access to health services and assistance with money management. For whatever reason, some people are without any form of identification and cannot gain access to services or facilities, such as opening a bank account-a basic requirement on application for a Work and Income benefit.
And before assuming that beggars are using funds to enable substance addiction, she encourages people to think twice.
"This is not a homogeneous group of people. For other people it's paying their rent and there are people who are begging who are housed. They might sit out there with signs saying I'm homeless -they know and understand [that] sitting out there with a little sign that says, 'I'm actually housed, but I don't have enough money to pay my rent will you contribute to me,' is too complex a message to get across to someone who is walking past you on the street."
Steve Flude is the manager of the Soup Kitchen, run through the Suzanne Aubert Compassion Centre, and regularly sits out on the street with Wellington's most vulnerable citizens. He liaises with around a dozen social service organisations who volunteer their professional social workers and support teams as part of an outreach programme.

"We're out sitting next to people, so the guys that sit outside New World on Willis Street are getting food, a bit of money; they might get the odd smoke. Once they've got what they need for the day they leave and someone will probably fill that space."
Flude says there are increasing concerns for younger people who are on their radar, along with older women in their 50s or 60s.
"There was a young guy living behind a wall for a number of months and the street outreach team kept trying to connect with him. He was hungry, not well dressed - it was having an impact on his mental health [and] it was the start of winter.
"To make that decision to sit out on the street all day, you'd have to be in a pretty low position."
Flude and his team managed to get the young man into a night shelter and hooked up with Te Aro Health to get him on his feet again, and back on a benefit. The reason he'd sought refuge on the street was due to a minor requirement that he needed to fulfil with Work and Income New Zealand.
There are many examples of situations like this that Flude has seen during his 25 years of working in outreach, and like McIntyre, he acknowledges there is a variety of issues.
"Some of them sit for money, some of them sit because they're socially isolated and want a connection with the wider community, some do it as part of a routine…"
He believes that begging isn't about a choice and refers to a quote from Martin Luther King: ''Don't question why people beg, but question the edifice that creates the need for people to beg''.
"We're a rich country, homelessness is not a huge issue in this country, we could do something about it easily if we wanted to, but there isn't a willingness to do it."

Currently the rise in begging could be seen as seen anecdotal as it seems like there is visible increase of those on the street but, to date, there are no statistics available to back this up.
Simon Tendeter, Communities and City Partnerships Team Leader and Alternate Emergency Welfare Manager for Wellington City Council, says that sourcing statistics relating to begging is difficult, especially given the transient nature of these individuals and the number of people sitting on the street varies from day-to-day.
Wellington City Council are in partnership with the Retailers Association and the local police to find a solution to the problem of begging.
"Our role is to better understand what the issues are, in order to better action a solution," he says.
Their main concern is about community and individual welfare.
A national Quality of Life survey was conducted in 2014 and shows that New Zealanders see begging as an issue.
What isn't clear is that this ''concern'' is not indicative of whether people are supportive or disapprove of begging as a growing phenomenon in this country.
Some members of the community might suggest that begging impacts on trade and tourism, but Wellington does not have any rules or regulations against begging, and Tendeter says that people are permitted to beg as long as they're seated on the pavement and not inhabiting space within store premises.
The Wellington City Council is looking to launch a project with associated research into begging between now and the beginning of 2016, which may call for the community and media involvement.
"The council is here to represent everyone, and we need to find solutions that attempt to meet everyone's needs," says Tendeter.
