What fewer New Zealanders may know is it is the 150th anniversary of some of the battles of the New Zealand wars.
“The Waikato War (1863–64) was waged by the government against the Kīngitanga movement, which arose in resistance to land sales in Waikato.” In her blogpost Defending Orākau, Ariana Tikao, Research Librarian at Turnbull Library shares a bit of this battle.
While plumbing the depths of the internet last night, I came across this sweet video from the ridiculously photogenic/cute Kid President. The message is relevant to all students and teachers, and especially here in Christchurch. With what you learn here at CPIT, you should be well equipped to move into industry and employment, but since you’ve got some time to think while you study, why not think about changing the world? Kid President has managed to do quite a bit with himself, and he’s ten, so who knows what you can achieve?
Cake and books combine – a wonderful day for librarians!
Enter our fabulous Edible Book Competition which will be held on Tuesday 1st April 2014. We had great fun last year putting this event together with Food & Hospitality and hope to see even more entries from everyone this year.
Don’t worry if you’re not a dab hand in the kitchen, it can be just as much about smart thinking! Take a look at some previous entries (to see what I mean) and you’ll notice that you don’t necessarily have to make a ‘cake’ to enter the competition. Entries should be creative interpretations of book titles.
Prizes will be awarded for the best entries in the following categories:
Want to know some background to this competition? Read on ….
Entries can be viewed from 9am on Tuesday morning in the Atrium in the Rakaia Centre. Winners will be announced at 12.15pm, and then the cakes can be devoured!
This year there will be a new addition of a graffiti cake where you can grab an icing pen and decorate the cake with the name of your favourite book or author. Also don’t forget to cast your vote for your favourite cake in the ‘People’s Choice Award’.
It will be a fun day for all so get thinking, get baking and making and join us on April 1st for CPIT’s second International Edible Book Competition.
It is sometimes said in Ireland, that God created alcohol to stop the Irish taking over the world. Though I’m not sure how much truth there is to that claim, it certainly seems to me that on this one day a year, the world gets to see what it’s missing out on. Here in New Zealand, you have a fair claim to the celebration- many Irish moved out here among the first wave of settlers, and by some accounts there were a few look-a-likes here even before then.
But still, like most of the western world, once a year, everyone here gets to be Irish for a day. People wear any scrap of green they can lay hands to, and the proliferation of “Kiss me I’m Irish” Tshirts, hats and badges, combined with free-flowing beer tends to lead to all kinds of debauchery. So with that in mind, I wondered what the library could do to help out your celebrations.
I have, therefore, prepared the following gems of wisdom to help you through the day.
Do use the word ‘Sláinte’ instead of ‘Cheers.’ It’s pronounced “Slawn-cha,” more or less.
Donot begin a conversation with “Fiddle-dee-dee, potatoes!”
Do wear a bit of green. You can skip this if you’re actually Irish.
Do not get all drunk and lose the run of yourself. It’s dangerous for you and your friends won’t thank you for having to take you home early.
Do adjust your social media privacy for any pictures you’re tagged in. Prospective employers will look at your profile, and you don’t want them to see pictures of you painted green and doing a kegstand.
Do have some patience with your bar staff, who will be flat out. They’re human too, and are busting their humps to keep you happy. The best way to improve your service is to tip like an Irishman.
Do not forget that you’re celebrating all things Irish, not being drunk. Show a little kindness to someone in need while you’re out, and make your night a little more memorable.
Do take a look at the TX section in the library, near the entrance. If you want to mix up some cocktails like a sir, or cook yourself a feast for Tuesday morning, that’s the place to get good at it.
Do not contact the police if the Irish tell you that they’re “Having the craic.” Having the craic is not a crime. Having the craic is all but mandatory on St. Patrick’s Day. If you’re not sure what having the craic is, then I submit this video of some goats having the craic, proving that you don’t have to be drunk to have fun.
Follow these simple guidelines, and you’ll be enjoying fine form, in fine spirits. Stay safe and look after your friends, and enjoy the feeling of being Irish, even if just for a day.
