Social Development Minister Paula Bennett says benefits and superannuation will increase for more than one million New Zealanders from 1 April 2011. "We’ve locked the Annual General Adjustment into legislation to give certainty," says Ms Bennett. Main benefits, Superannuation and Student Allowance rates, all increase from April 1 to reflect increases to the Consumer Price Index. Main benefits will increase by 3.75% from 1 April 2011, this includes the GST compensation component of 2.02% added in 1 October 2010. For more information visit: http://www.msd.govt.nz .
Businesses and employees will enjoy greater certainty and flexibility at work with changes to the Holidays and Employment Relations acts that took effect 1 April 2011, says Minister of Labour Kate Wilkinson. "The Government worked hard last year to produce a package of changes that will encourage employers to hire, reduce compliance costs and give employees greater choice with how they take their holidays," Ms Wilkinson says. The changes include: extending the 90-day trial period to all employers; giving employees the choice to cash in their fourth week of annual leave, on agreement with their employer; allowing employees to negotiate the transfer of a public holiday to another day; adjusting the Relevant Daily Pay equation with a new calculation known as Average Daily Pay; and doubling the penalties for breaching the Holidays or Employment Relations acts.

To support the Christchurch City rebuild, donations of computers, printers, mobile phones and networking equipment are available to non-profit organisations affected by the emergency. Good quality donated hardware has been re-imaged with free copies of Microsoft’s Windows XP operating system and Microsoft Office 2007 Basic. All licensing fees have been waived by Microsoft. If your organization or an organization you know in Christchurch has lost computers, printers or mobile phones as a result of the earthquake, contact Remarkit Solutions on 04 912 1020 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org . You can also request IT equipment online at: http://it4christchurch.blogspot.com/ .
Placing infants and toddlers in child care is not ‘bad’ for them - provided it is good quality, according to the findings of a report released by Children’s Commissioner John Angus. The report, Through their lens: An inquiry into non-parental education and care of infants and toddlers, suggests quality is variable in this country and some improvements are needed to ensure consistent high quality. The report makes a number of other recommendations across policy, regulation and practice to strengthen the provision of formal care for infants and toddlers. These include creating better connections with health professionals and improving access to quality education and care in low socioeconomic areas. The full report can be found at: http://www.occ.org.nz . A summary document is also available.
The latest NZCCSS Vulnerability Report shows families cannot afford any cuts to essential social services. The report shows that more and more families are finding they cannot provide the essentials for their children and are seeking support from social service agencies. NZCCSS' Trevor McGlinchey says that this is impacting on our young peoples’ ability to achieve their potential and resulting in anger and tension in families. "The many, many families who are either on benefits or have had their incomes seriously reduced because one parent has lost their job, or because of reduced hours, are finding life incredibly stressful," says McGlinchey.

Ms Toni Hocquard, Chairperson of the Social Workers Registration Board is pleased to support the Minister for Social Development, Paula Bennett, in her quest for better outcomes for families and children through strengthening social work practice and supervision. Ms Bennett has announced changes to Family Start funding including new outcomes and ways to measure them, an increased focus on child abuse detection/prevention, making sure it is reaching families who need it most as well as implementation of a new team of specialist technical advisors. The new programme standards and guidelines are to be introduced in stages over two years to allow providers time to refocus their programme delivery. "Ensuring competent social work practice and professional supervision are core components of social worker registration in New Zealand," Ms Hocquard said. "The Board is becoming increasingly concerned about the number of unqualified people currently offering social work services to vulnerable children and their families. Many of these individuals are not registered social workers and although well meaning they are not able to be held accountable for their actions and potentially undermine the reputation of the many qualified and competent Registered Social Workers practising in New Zealand," said Ms Hocquard. The Board has released a discussion document on whether the current voluntary registration under the Social Workers Registration Act 2003 is meeting the purpose of protecting the public by ensuring that social workers are competent and accountable for the way in which they practise. The discussion document is available on the Board’s website: http://www.swrb.govt.nz and feedback will be accepted until Friday, 1 July 2011.
InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand Inc) is pleased to announce it has tripled its level of financial support for NetHui 2011 and reduced event costs. The result is that the cost of attending NetHui 2011 is now only a registration fee of $30 plus GST, payable to the conference company organising the event. "NetHui has always been about community discussions of important Internet issues. We received some comments from the community that the original registration fee was acting as a barrier to attend. They were not comfortable taking up our offer of waiving or reducing the registration fee on a case by case basis. So we’ve cut costs and dug into our budget to remove that barrier for everyone while still producing a high quality event," says InternetNZ Chief Executive Vikram Kumar. NetHui 2011 brings together everyone involved with Internet issues in New Zealand. It is being held over three days in Auckland at SkyCity, from 29 June to 1 July 2011. The first two days involve roundtable discussion streams covering Access & Diversity, Digital Citizenship, Governance & Legal, Government & Openness, Innovation & Emerging Issues, and Education. The final day brings everyone together for focused panel discussions. Further information and registration is available at: http://www.nethui.org.nz .
Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) need to work together in order to continue providing vital services in the face of significant funding challenges, says Platform chief executive Marion Blake. Ms Blake, whose organisation is a national network of mental health and addiction NGOs, said that with years of austerity measures ahead, it is clear that New Zealand will not be able to invest in health in the way it has before. "Clearly everybody in the health sector is going to have to learn to do more with less," said Ms Blake. "We need to get more creative about how we use what we have and how we deliver services – and one of the keys to this will be collaboration. It will become essential for elements of our mental health and addiction services to collaborate, work differently with each other and even merge just as we are already starting to see happening in all aspects of organisational life in New Zealand." Ms Blake said that GPs should also be able to refer people directly to a community organisation contracted by a District Health Board to provide mental health and addiction services.
Applications for funding under the 2011/12 Māori Provider Development Scheme (MPDS) are now being invited. Alongside the opening of applications, the Ministry of Health has published the MPDS 2011/12 Purchasing Intentions, which provides an overview of the criteria for MPDS funding. The document, available from the Ministry’s website, indicates how available funds will be allocated across the 20 district health board (DHB) regions in New Zealand, as well as identifying how the available funding will be split between regional and national providers of health and disability services. To download an application form visit: http://www.maorihealth.govt.nz/moh.nsf/indexma/maori-provider-development-scheme . Applications close at 12 noon on Friday, 27 May.
Volunteering Otago is expanding! The need for a volunteering matching service has been identified in the Central Lakes district and Volunteering Otago is filling that gap. Gillian White, based in Wanaka, has been appointed to coordinate the Volunteering Central scheme, which is funded by The Central Lakes Trust. The project aims to increase local participation in the non-profit and community benefit sector, as well as increasing the community's understanding of the range of volunteering opportunities within the region. In addition to creating a comprehensive database to enable volunteers to be matched to suitable opportunities, the scheme will also offer support to organisations in which volunteers play a role. Information, networking, recruitment services and training will all be on offer. For more information on the project Gillian can be contacted via email at: email@example.com or on 021 500 394.
A new Quarterly Generosity Indicators report is now available to coincide with the Philanthropy through the Looking Glass conference. This analyses two new quarters worth of data. The research findings are compared with previous quarters and include analysis of the effects of major disasters such as the Pacific tsunami, Christchurch's September earthquake and the Pike River mine, which all occurred in the period for which data is now available. This is the first time that we can gauge the impact of such events on the giving and volunteering behaviours of New Zealanders. As more detail on the behaviours of givers becomes available, this will help community groups target who, where and how they recruit and engage prospective supporters. Check the latest data on the Office for the Community and Voluntary Sector (OCVS) website: http://www.ocvs.govt.nz/work-programme/building-knowledge/giving-research/qqi-march-2011.html .
Payroll Giving to New Zealand charities has hit the $2 million milestone in just 15 months, Revenue Minister and the architect of the scheme, Peter Dunne, said. "The scheme raised $1.4 million for charities in its first 12 months to January this year, and it has really taken off with a further $600,000 in the first three months of this year." Mr Dunne said an important aspect of the scheme now was that people could make donations to the Christchurch Earthquake Appeal through it. Under payroll giving, people donate automatically from their pay to their chosen charity from a list of donee organisations approved by Inland Revenue. The employee then gets their tax credit each payday instead of having to wait until the end of the tax year to make a claim.

National child empowerment organisation Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower Trust NZ says controlling bullying behaviour can have positive outcomes. Kidpower’s National Centre Director Fiona Bryan says as schools consider the effectiveness of their bullying prevention policies, in light of recent cases of bullying that have hit the media, they need to think carefully about the outcomes of those policies. "It’s not in our children’s interest to have a knee-jerk reaction to the media publicity. There are ways that bullying behaviour can actually be managed to have positive outcomes for the children who are bullying as well as the potential victims." Fiona Bryan says this is the time to take the opportunity to teach social skills to children who are bullying. "We urge schools to seek expert advice to help with their bullying prevention policy review process. It may take more time, but there are techniques that expert groups such as Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower Trust have, that can turn this difficult process into positive and effective action." Research shows that school-based programmes can help prevent bullying and give children the social skills they need to protect themselves.
Samaritans have seen a huge increase in calls over the past weeks due to the Christchurch Earthquake. "Our volunteers have spoken to people about grief, loss, hardship and pain We expect to see these calls to continue to increase with the hardship still very prevalent in Christchurch," says Bruce Wall, chairman of Samaritans NZ. Samaritans would therefore like to take this opportunity to call on the community to consider becoming a volunteer. "Samaritans always need more volunteers and it is true to say that they save lives and help many in their time of crisis. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization and the way they have worked together in this time of natural disaster show just how wonderful they are," says Bruce. Anyone interested in volunteering can visit the website http://www.samaritans.org.nz for more information.
The Government will spend about $8.5 billion over the next few years to help the rebuilding of Christchurch, Finance Minister Bill English announced. "The earthquakes do not fundamentally change our economic situation or the Government’s program," he said in a speech to the Wellington Employers’ Chamber of Commerce. "They simply make the task of returning to surplus a little more difficult." At this stage, the Treasury estimates the direct cost to the Government of the two earthquakes at about $5.5 billion, which will be fully provided for in the Budget on 19 May. "About $3 billion of this relates to our share of local government infrastructure, roads, insurance excesses on schools and hospitals, temporary housing and land remediation agreed after the September quake, demolition costs in the CBD, ACC costs and the business support package. The remaining $2.5 billion will cover expected costs of decisions we have yet to make – the biggest cost is likely to be remediation of land damage from the February quake. The final cost of land remediation is yet to be determined," Mr English says.
Variety - The Children's Charity is seeking applications for financial help from families and children who have been affected by the earthquake in Christchurch. Variety is there for children in all sorts of challenging circumstances and has been working in the Christchurch community for many years supporting sick, disabled and disadvantaged children. Some examples of things that the charity is funding from its earthquake appeal include replacing mobility and medical equipment for children with special needs, providing toys or equipment for those who suffered great loss, financial help with school or sports fees, or helping children to cope with loss. The charity has raised more than $164,000 through donations to its earthquake appeal. It is working with local schools, communities and individuals to fund a number of projects and is also currently looking to support any additional children who have been affected. If you and your family require help, or know of any children that do, please visit: http://www.variety.org.nz or telephone 09 520 4111 to complete an application for funding.
Access and Rural Women New Zealand are looking for deserving applicants for their 2011 scholarship. "We will be awarding the Rural Women New Zealand & Access Scholarship to a health professional to help further his or her studies," says Rural Women New Zealand National President, Liz Evans. "Given our rural focus, we are particularly looking for someone who has an interest in providing health or disability services in the rural sector." The Rural Women New Zealand & Access Scholarship is a $3000 tertiary scholarship, payable for one year only. Applications close on 1 July and preference will be given to applicants who are studying at post-graduate level. Further information and application forms can be found at: http://www.access.org.nz .
A review of the Māori language strategy and sector has been completed and Te Paepae Motuhake has publicly released its review report 'Te Reo Mauriora'. The review examined the strategy and infrastructure of the Māori language sector to ensure the programmes and expenditure across the whole of government are responsive to Iwi/Māori aspirations. The Government will now carefully consider the contents and recommendations of the Panel’s report and make an initial statement to outline the overall direction of the whole of government response. It is intended that the initial statement will be made during Māori Language Week, 4 – 10 July 2011. This will be followed by further work to develop a new Māori Language Strategy, for confirmation in early 2012.

Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and the Ministry for Culture & Heritage are pleased to announce Sistema Aotearoa. Sistema Aotearoa is a system of musical tuition based on El Sistema, one of the world’s most successful music and social development projects. An internationally-renowned programme first introduced in Venezuela more than 35 years ago and since adopted around the world, El Sistema has been used to teach music to more than 300,000 young people. It has been credited with improving the lives of participants and their families, reducing crime, increasing school attendance rates and preventing people from turning to gangs and drugs. The APO, with funding from the Ministry for Culture & Heritage, will manage a pilot programme based on El Sistema and sited at Otara Music Arts Centre (OMAC). Through its outreach projects such as Remix the Orchestra, the APO has strong links with OMAC, which has pledged support alongside schools, church groups and other community organisations. Sistema Aotearoa will involve professionally trained musicians working in a community setting after school and in holidays to bring the joy and discipline of music making to children. There is no cost to participants. Pupils will learn basic musicianship and the skills of playing an instrument in a way suitable to their age. For more information on Sistema Aotearoa visit: http://www.apo.co.nz/sistema_aotearoa.aspx .

In days of yore — the days of shorthand, secretaries and typewriters — a manager would dictate a letter. The secretary would write it down on a pad in shorthand and then go and type up a copy.
These days most of us type our own material into a computer. I don't know about you, but I'm a poor typist and also a bit lazy. I find typing long things to be quite hard work.
That's why these days, when I have quite a lot to say, I quite often dictate it straight into my computer. In fact, that's how I've written this tip.
And it's something you could do too as the software has become very effective and not too expensive.
I don't know if other products are even available, but the acknowledged leader in the field of dictation software is Dragon Dictate from Nuance. The software is available for both Windows and Mac for around US$200. If you earn money with your writing the software may well pay for itself in time saved within a few hours.
To get the best from the software you need two things: to do a little bit of training so that the software is able to recognise your voice, and a good quality microphone. On their website Nuance recommend microphones that work well with Dictate.
In earlier times the software needed a great deal of training and was not always very accurate. I've been using it off and on for years now and can definitely say that these days it is very accurate and very easy to use.
In some ways the hardest thing about learning to use it well lies in the switch from typing to speaking. You need to marshal your thoughts and keep track of what you were wanting to say and the best way to say it — it really is very different from typing.
You may well also find that you say too much because it becomes so easy just to ramble on. At least when you're typing (well for me anyway), I get tired and want to stop. That does tend to keep my written documents a bit more concise.
If you write a lot I recommend that you check out this software. If you have a quiet environment and want to save your arms and wrists from the risks of excessive typing this may work for you.
Just as a note, I dictated this whole tip and only a few things needed fixing: a typo, a couple of dashes, the URL for Nuance and some edits I wanted to make after the fact.
I neherā — i ngā wā o te tuhipoto, o ngā hekeretari me ngā patotuhi — i taea e te kaiwhakahaere te kōrero ā-waha i tētahi reta. Ka tuhipototia e te hekeretari ki tētahi pukapuka tuhituhi, kātahi ka patopatohia e ia te reta.
I ēnei rā patopato ai te nuinga o tātou i ā tātou tuhinga ki te rorohiko. Kāore au e mōhio ki tōu kaha patopato, engari ko au, he koretake ki tērā mahi, ā, he āhua māngere hoki. Ki a au nei, he mahi uaua te patopato tuhinga roa.
Koinei te take i ēnei rā, ina nui aku kōrero, ka kōrero tika tonu atu ki roto i taku rorohiko. Otirā, i pēneitia e au tēnei kōrero āwhina.
Ka taea anō e koe tēnei nā te tino pai haere o te pŪmanawa, ā, kua iti haere anō te utu.
Kāore au e mōhio mēnā ka wātea ētahi atu momo pŪmanawa pēnei, engari ko te momo pŪmanawa kōrero ā-waha tino rongonui ko te Dragon Dictate a Nuance. Kei te wātea tēnei pŪmanawa mō ngā rorohiko Windows, Mac hoki, ā, kei te āhua o te US$200 te utu. Mēnā ka utua koe mō ō mahi tuhituhi, tērā pea ka hoki mai ō moni ki a koe i roto i ētahi haori ruarua noa iho.
Mō te whakamahi tōtika i tēnei pŪmanawa me mahi i ēnei mea e rua: me paku whakangungu i a koe kia waia ai te pŪmanawa ki tōu reo, ā, me tiki anō i tētahi hopuoro pai. Kua tŪtohua e Nuance ngā hopuoro tino pai e mahi pai ana me Dictate ki tā rātou paetukutuku.
I ngā wā o mua he tino nui te whakangungu i te pŪmanawa, ā, kāore hoki i tino tōtika āna mahi. I ētahi wā whakamahi ai au i tēnei pŪmanawa i roto i ngā tau kua hori, engari ka taea te kī mārika, he tino tōtika, he tino māmā ki te whakamahi i ēnei rā.
Me kī, ko te mea tino uaua pea mō te ako ki te whakamahi ko te huri mai i te patopato ki te kōrero ā-waha. Ko te mea kē, me āta whakahiato i ōu whakaaro me te mahara tonu ki tāu e hiahia ai ki te kōrero me te āhua tino pai rawa o te kōrero i tēnā — he rerekē rawa i te patopato kupu.
Tēnā pea ka kite koe nui rawa o kupu. He tino māmā noa te kaipohau. Ina patopato te tangata, mōku tonu, ka ngenge haere, ka pīrangi ki te whakatā. Na tēnei ka āhua poto noa aku tuhinga.
Ko tāku e tŪtohu ana, mēnā he nui ō mahi tuhituhi me tirotiro e koe tēnei pŪmanawa. Mēnā he taiao mahi mauru tōu, me te kore hiahia anō kia pāngia ō ringa me ō kawititanga ki ngā mate o te patopato, tēnā pea he pai tēnei pŪmanawa māu.
Kia mōhio ai koe, nāku i kōrero ā-waha katoa tēnei kōrero āwhina ka mutu tino iti noa ngā whakatikatika: he kupu hē, e rua ngā āputa, te PRO mō Nuance, me ētahi whakatikatanga nāku tonu i hiahia ki te whakauru.
I recently took over a small job for a website community. I help subscribers, keep some records and look after the membership of the mailing list.
There are constant comings and goings: people join or leave, and PayPal sometimes unsubscribes people for no apparent reason.
None of these things are particularly hard but I did need to learn new routines.
Your organisation probably also has routines for computer-based work, for example, to log in to your website and update content. Or which folder you save certain documents in or how to set up for this month's newsletter.
With any luck you have documentation of all these things so that if a current staff member or volunteer leaves a new person can find out how to do things.
Chances are though, that the documentation is not quite all it could be. It can be very hard to make sure you have all the right steps in all the right sequences and without leaving anything out.
My colleague made a screencast while she taught me my new role. This meant that everything she did on screen was recorded as a video. Later, rather than bothering my colleague with questions about small details I was able to simply review the video to see what to do.
I recommend making screencasts for your own internal training purposes — it's extraordinarily easy to do.
I nā noa nei i tīmata au i tētahi mahi iti mō tētahi hapori paetukutuku. He maha ngā haerenga mai me ngā haerenga atu: ka hono ngā tāngata, ka wehe atu rānei, ā, i ētahi wā ka wete mai a PayPal i ētahi tāngata, ko te āhua nei mō te kore noa iho.
Ka āwhina au i ngā kaiohauru, ka pupuri i ētahi pŪkete me te tiaki i ngā mema o te rārangi tuku mēra.
Ehara ēnei mahi i te mahi, engari me ako au i ētahi ritenga hou.
Tēnā pea he ritenga anō o tō whakahaere mō ngā mahi i runga rorohiko, hei tauira, mō te takiuru ki tō paetukutuku me te whakahou i ngā kōrero i reira. Mō ngā kōnae rānei hei tiaki i ētahi tuhinga, me pēhea hoki e whakarite ai mō te pānui o tēnei marama.
Waimarie pea pēnā kei tō whakahaere ngā pepa tōtika o ēnei mahi katoa, ā, ki te wehe tētahi kaimahi, tētahi kaitŪao rānei, kua mōhio tētahi tangata hou me pēhea te mahi i ngā mahi.
Heoi anō, tēnā pea kāore anō aua pepa i te takoto tika ki tērā e hiahiatia ana. Me uaua kē ka whakarite kua whakatakotoria ngā upane hei whai i te raupapa tika, me te kore mahue o tētahi mea ki waho.
I hanga taku hoamahi i tētahi pāhōmata i a ia e ako ana i a au ki taku tŪnga hou. Ko te tikanga o tēnei i hopukina ngā mea katoa i mahia e ia i te mata hei ataata. I muri iho, ka taea e au te mātakitaki anō i te ataata kia āta mōhio ai au me te kore whakahōhā anō i taku hoamahi.
Ko tāku e tŪtohu ana kia hanga pāhōmata mō ōu ake mahi whakangungu ā-roto — he tino ngāwari noa iho.
As a Mac user I can make screencasts with QuickTime Player X, free with Snow Leopard. These videos are very basic but satisfactory. See: http://mactips.info/2011/02/make-a-screencast-or-audio-recording-with-quicktime-player-10 .
Since I frequently publish instructional videos, I normally use a sophisticated piece of software called ScreenFlow.
I'm not sure if QuickTime Player on Windows is able to make recordings of the screen. However people I trust tell me that Camtasia is superb and that Jing is good too.
To make a video of what's on your screen simply tell the software to start recording, and make sure it's recording your voice too. Then work through your normal process such as adding a user to a mailing list, explaining it as you go.
Hei kaiwhakamahi Mac ka taea e au te hanga pāhōmata me te QuickTime Player X, he mea koreutu me Snow Leopard. He tino waitau ēnei ataata, engari he pai.
Nā te mea he rite tonu taku whakaputa ataata tohutohu, ka whakamahia e au tētahi pŪmanawa mātanga e kīia ana ana ko ScreenFlow.
Kāore au i te tino mōhio mēnā ka taea e te QuickTime Player i Windows te hopu pāhōmata o te mata. Heoi e kī mai ana ētahi tāngata e whakawhirinaki ai au he rawe a Camtasia, ā, he pai hoki a Jing.
Hei hanga ataata o ngā mea kei tō mata, me tohutohu te pŪmamawa kia tīmata ki te hopu, me te whakarite kei te hopu anō i tō reo. Kātahi ka mahi koe i āu hātepe noa pēnei i te tāpiri i tētahi kaiwhakamahi ki te rārangi mēra, me te whakamārama haere i a koe e mahi haere ana.
At the start of the video introduce the topic: "How to add a user to the mailing list". Include a date and your name, so people know who to refer to for more information and how old the video is.
Work a little more slowly than usual, so viewers can keep up.
Make one short video per topic rather than one giant one for everything.
