Google posts satellite images of post-quake Christchurch

Google's satellite imaging partner, GeoEye, has taken new pictures of Christchurch, putting a new perspective on the damage caused by the Tuesday, February 22 earthquake.

The satellite photos were taken on Thursday, February 24th from the GeoEye-1 satellite.

Some parts of the city are covered in clouds, but substantial portions of the central business district are clearly visible.

Why does he still have a passport? The Serious Fraud outfit was called in by Aunty Helen when it was politically expedient to stir things for a supposed political advantage for a paltry $100 grand. It is strange that Bryers seems immune from any real action when he has ripped off Mum and Dad for $80 million. <a href="http://www.brain-dumps.biz/A-plus-dumps.html">a+ dumps</a>

Kerry Finnigan and Mark Hotchin could buy it through FAI Finance and the Strategic Finance Consultant could run it.

Let's hope there is something left for the poor old tax payer after McGrath Nicol, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Korda Mentha et al have all taken their considerable bites from the pie

Face was the best part of SCF - rather than suffer under the incompetence of the CEO Mcleod and his side kick Bosworth they carved out a profitable niche. the lack of capital represents the packaging of the recveiver rather than the true quality of the loan receivables.

Much more than HR, if you bother to read the rest of the article. The reading and comprehension skills of the NBR readership these days is quite alarming!

It is also alarming that people consider HR to be just about restructuring! I agree - she has much much wider skills than HR - I would suggest that HR is not her main skillset

Nice to see the whingeing by the feminist brigade has achieved a positive result for them.Though how an H.R Specialist can qualify as a M.D., baffles me. I guess our Oz financial Masters can hand out some scraps to the PC's given her boss is another Kiwi that has pushed the right buttons.

We are uncertain of the <a href="http://www.findacellphoneuser.com/">Cell Phone Lookup</a> next step, but we are certain of God. Immediately <a href="http://www.outdoorlightsgalore.com/">Outdoor Lighting</a> we abandon to God, and do the duty that lies nearest, and He packs our life with surprises <a href="http://bestpelletstoves.blogspot.com/">Pellet Stoves</a> all the time....

Dairying has grown strongly in the surrounding areas with high world prices for milk products and the use of irrigation to lift grass growth on dry land. With its higher labour use this has helped stop declines in rural population. Many cropping and sheep farms have been converted to dairying. Thanks.
