Not Fit For Purpose - Shell Drill Ship Noble Discoverer NZ Herald 22 July 2012

The following article is from the NZ Herald newspaper. This is in response to the Shell drill ship The Noble Discoverer not being in a fit state. We reported on the Noble Discoverer mishap on 18 July - Eco-Warrior: Noble Discoverer Mishap Justifies Lawless Protest Waikato Times 18 July 2012 - this ship is not in a fit state to go to the Arctic.

The NZ Herald had this article and quotes from Lucy:


Actor Lucy Lawless and five Greenpeace activists are arrested by police on top of the derrick of an Arctic-bound Shell drillship in Port Taranaki, New Zealand. The arrest ends their occupation of the Nobel Discoverer which lasted 76 hours. The Shell contracted drillship is heading to the Arctic to start drilling for oil. Shell is positioning itself to be at the head of an oil-rush into the Arctic, in expectation that climate change will continue to drive up the average Arctic summer ice melt, and so make drilling in the region easier. Oil spills are virtually impossible to clean up in Arctic conditions. Lawless unimpressed as Shell ship breaks free
NZ Herald 22 July 2012

Eco-warrior princess Lucy Lawless has slammed oil giant Shell as its drilling ship runs into new trouble. Lawless is awaiting sentencing for boarding Shell's Noble Discoverer with fellow Greenpeace activists when it visited Taranaki in February.

At the time, Shell did not publicly disclose that the drill ship's anchor cables had failed in a storm off the Taranaki coast. This week the ship slipped its moorings in an Alaskan harbour, drifting close to the coast before it was towed back to deeper water.

"It was another sign of what a crappy tug that is," Lawless said. "The fact it has to be towed shows it's not fit for purpose."

Lawless said the incident was evidence of "the contempt Shell has for the safety of the environment".

Veteran seamen had told Greenpeace the ship was dangerous, she said.

"A lot of old salts were coming up saying, 'it's a death trap'."

Shell NZ spokeswoman Shona Geary said three anchor cables had broken in gale force winds and 11m swells off Taranaki. "No one was injured and there was no harm to the environment. Maritime NZ investigated and found no further action was necessary."

High Arctic Sanctuary Campaign Petition Reaches 957,699!

This is quite impressive. In the short time the High Arctic Sanctuary Campaign petition has been up (it was officially started on 21 June 2012 in Rio during the Rio+20 Earth Summit) it has reached 957,699 signatories.

Greenpeace says:

Come with us to the North Pole. When we reach 1 million signatures we’ll plant your name and a Flag for the Future on the bottom of the ocean at the top of the world.

Lucy tweeted today

 

 

WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?

Image634783327239042968At a press conference at the UN Earth Summit in Rio this morning (at approximately 01:30hrs NZ time), New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless launched an ambitious plan to declare a global sanctuary in the High Arctic.

She revealed the plan alongside entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson, and Greenpeace International's Executive Director Kumi Naidoo.

One of the key steps of the plan is to gather a million signatures on a scroll, and place them in an indestructible pod on the sea floor, four thousand metres below the North Pole.

Lawless joins Sir Paul McCartney, Penelope Cruz, Robert Redford, Jude Law, the world's biggest boy band One Direction and dozens of other famous names in demanding that the uninhabited area around the North Pole be legally protected and made off-limits to polluters. Other signatories include, Pedro Almodovar, Thom Yorke, Emily Blunt, Baaba Maal, Javier Bardem, Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel and some of China's most famous musicians. The list includes nine Oscar winners, ten Golden Globe winners and five Grammy Award winners (details below).

Right now the huge expanse around the Pole belongs to all of us because it's defined in international law as the high seas, and underneath it is the deep seabed which is the common heritage of all mankind. But as temperatures rise due to climate change, and the ice melts, the Arctic states are making territorial claims on the seabed so they can open the door to the oil giants. The Arctic sea ice has retreated dramatically in recent years and scientists say the North Pole could soon be ice-free. (1)

The Arctic is crucial to avoiding a state of runaway climate change, as it acts like the Earth's refrigerator, keeping the planet cool by reflecting the sun's energy off its surface.

Eco-Warrior: Noble Discoverer Mishap Justifies Lawless Protest Waikato Times 18 July 2012

The following article was in the Waikato Times 18 July 2012 about Shell's very old drilling ship The Noble Discoverer. Lucy and the Taranaki 7 boarded this ship on 24 February in the longest running Greenpeace protest to date. They brought world wide media attention to Shell's plans to drill in the Arctic. You can read more on the AUSXIP Lucy Lawless Save The Arctic Support Page for more news, photos, video and other multimedia related to this protest.

screenshot_02Noble Discoverer Mishap Justifies Lawless Protest Waikato Times

The Waikato Times 18 July 2012


The Shell-chartered drilling ship that was the target of Greenpeace protests has struck trouble in Alaska.

Greenpeace says its protest against the Noble Discoverer has been justified by a near-miss involving the drilling ship in Alaska.

The controversy-plagued ship slipped its mooring and drifted perilously close to the shore in the Aleutian Islands on Monday.

Environmental campaigners are using it as the latest example of why there should be no exploration oil and gas drilling in the Arctic Circle.

Alaskan environmental organisations have been quick to point out the Noble Discoverer was involved in a similar incident when it was in New Zealand – its eight-anchor mooring system failed in a storm off Taranaki – and how it was the focus of Arctic drilling protest action at Port Taranaki by Greenpeace, involving Kiwi actress Lucy Lawless.

‘‘I’m concerned about the safety of the drilling operation if the rig can’t hold in place in the kinds of storms we can see in the Chukchi Sea, and the Bering Sea on the way up,’’ said Pamela Miller, of the Northern Alaska Environmental Centre.

Greenpeace New Zealand climate campaigner Simon Boxer said the latest Noble Discoverer incident once again justified February’s protest action at Port Taranaki.

‘‘We drew the world’s attention to the whole Arctic drilling programme – in Taranaki, we woke up the world,’’ he said.

‘‘And now this. This latest incident makes us even more worried that there will be problems if the drilling takes place.

‘‘We hope to God it doesn’t happen. There’s such a short weather window up there. Latest estimates are that if there was a well blowout there, the weather would mean it would take at least two years to bring it under control.’’

Witnesses say the 157-metre-long Shellchartered ship bumped into a beach in front of a big hotel overlooking Dutch Harbour, and lay stuck there for more than an hour before being towed to deeper water. Winds were gusting up to about 50kmh at the time.

The Noble Discoverer is part of a fleet poised to head north for exploratory drilling in the Arctic waters of the Beaufort and Chukchi seas.

Shell said an inspection of the hull showed no signs of damage.

Lucy Highlights From Spartacus Comic Panel | CinemaBlend 13 July 2012

Cinemablend had the highlights of the Spartacus Comic Con Panel. Below are just the Lucy Snippets (Photos by AUSXIP Assistant Editor Lori Boyles who attended the event)

Image634778809779169921

6:11 - The crowd also went crazy when Lucy Lawless arrived! What an excellent surprise! Lawless says the show helped rebrand her. Manu Bennett talking about the human nature of the show. He lost his mother and brother in a car accident when he was young. He tries to play his roles honestly as a tribute to his mother and brother.

6:14 - Fan asks Lucy about last season. Lucy says Lucretia might have been a bit nuts at the beginning. She asked DeKnight if Lucretia was really crazy. He said she's "criminally insane" (the finale definitely proved that!). McIntyre tells her she's amazing.

6:27 - Lawless talking about what Lucretia went through with Ashur. Talking about Lucretia's rationale for not killing him, because she had other plans. She says it was challenging as an actor. Nick Tarabey says the Ashur/Lucretia scenes were tremendously challenging. He said Lawless was amazing.

6:34 - They're talking about the deaths and all of the beatings they took. The fake blood apparently turns to glue and "rips your skin off." Viva Bianca talking about her final scene. Producers said she didn't look dead enough. They had to reshoot it. Sounds like she had a miserable time shooting that scene. Lawless says it was a beautiful death for Ilythia. Bianca confirms that she is actually dead. Lawless follows this up with a laugh, saying "...inside." Craig Parker talks about the idea of his character coming back, joking that Glaber was a sword-swallower. Peter Mensah thanks DeKnight for the way Oenomaus went (saving his best friend and thinking about being with his wife.)

6:38
- Jenna Busch (moderator) comments on the kick-ass chicks in the show. DeKnight says he came from the "Joss Whedon camp" where there are a lot of strong female characters. He calls Lawless and Bianca's performances brilliant and phenomenal. He says it was a joy to write for them. And they're showing us the trailer again!

Highlights From EW's Women Who Kick Ass Comic-Con panel

LLPANEL1

EW has the highlights from the Women Who Kick Ass Comic Con Panel. The following are snippets about Lucy's part on the panel:

As a big supporter of strong women, Entertainment Weekly brought together some of entertainment’s most bad-ass females for a panel during San Diego Comic-Con. Moderated by EW’s Lynette Rice, the Women Who Kick Ass panel featured Kristin Kreuk (Beauty and the Beast, Smallville), Nikki Reed (Twilight, Breaking Dawn), Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead), Anna Torv (Fringe), Kristin Bauer van Straten (True Blood), and surprise guest Lucy Lawless (Spartacus) for a wide-ranging chat about stereotypes, the challenges that come with playing a tough woman, and…going to jail?! Read on for the highlights:

+ FREE LUCY Lawless, who was arrested in February after she and other activists protested aboard an oil-drilling ship in New Zealand, told the crowd that she’s not sure what will go down at her sentencing on Sept. 12, but admitted, “I am guilty — of trying to save the environment!” Massive cheers erupted.

+ LOVE FOR SIGOURNEY WEAVER The panel credited Cate Blanchet and Girls‘ multi-hyphenate Lena Dunham as inspiration, but no one got more love than Weaver, to whom Lawless admitted she’d recently written a “fan letter.”

Army Developing Xena Inspired Body Armour

Xena.jpgHere's an interesting article about the US Army developing Xena inspired Body Armour for Female Soldiers:

The US military is developing "Xena: Warrior Princess"-style body armor for women that it hopes will give them greater protection on the battlefield, with more curves in the chest and hips.

It is a considerable engineering challenge to make body armor that better fits the bodies of female troops, US military officials acknowledge, and such armor may be years in the making.

"Some people would like to eventually make plates so it's like 'Xena: Warrior Princess' and conforms to the shape" of female soldiers, he adds.

Yet there are engineering challenges. The more curves the plates have, the heavier they get. It also creates potential weaknesses in the armor, like creasing a paper, Lozano explains.

"There are some complex curvatures that come into play with female hard-armor plates," he says. "I could make female hard armor, but it would be twice as heavy." As a result, some of the Army's developmental efforts involve "unique chemical designs" to create plates that are lighter and conform to different body shapes.

Currently, female soldiers have a choice of 11 male body-armor sizes.

Lucy Tweets and AUSXIP Casper Auction Ends

Image634772866304414063The AUSXIP special charity auction to benefit CASPER has ended. Lucy donated, autographed and added some addition comments to the artwork has sold for $700 USD ($840 NZD). All money raised will benefit CASPER.

Many thanks to those who bid / supported the auction.

 

ABOUT CASPER

CASPER is an organisation delivering services for those bereaved by suicide. Rising suicide rates and research evidence that suicide is increased by New Zealand's current mental health approach to suicide prevention, has led CASPER to develop a model which addresses the social drivers of suicide.

The organisation provides family support services, community and youth education which focus on building a strong sense of belonging, participation and hope for those experiencing emotional distress. The CASPER suicide prevention model is based on New Zealand and international research which shows that suicide prevention is most effective when located within families and communities rather than mental health clinics.

CASPER is available to provide information and support to the 65,000 New Zealanders bereaved by suicide in the past 25 years and the 11 new families each week who experience the suicide death of a loved one. It provides youth suicide prevention education in schools and community education workshops. CASPER supports community and opinion leaders and policy makers with research to support evidence based suicide prevention.

The organisation is a registered charitable trust and does not receive government funding.

Lucy Mentions From The Net: Auckland Concert and Rio+20 Fan Event

There's a couple of Lucy mentions - one from her recent trip to Rio+20 Earth Summit where she met the fans at Pier Maua where the Rainbow Warrior III was docked - and the other was her first Auckland concert.


AUCKLAND CONCERT

Image634769845637148437Get ready "lesbitarians!"
Posted in: Events, Hall of Fame
By Jacqui Stanford - 2nd July 2012

Urzila Carlson, the woman described by Lucy Lawless as "the funniest Kiwi stand-up ever" will be the MC at Auckland's Lesbian Ball this weekend.

"Well actually I did that thing with Lucy Lawless," she says of Lawless' Girls Behaving Badly show in May, which also featured musicians Anika Moa and Julia Deans. "I didn't think it was going to be a gay gig, but wouldn't you know it, it was!" Carlson says of the crowd.

Before the show Lawless, a straight lesbian icon across the globe, described Carlson as the "funniest Kiwi stand-up ever," in a weekend newspaper. "I love her man, so I was blown away when I saw that. I was like, really?" Carlson says. "I didn't even think she would know who I was!"

Lucy Lawless Message to Susanna Rustin From The Guardian

Image634768933720585938This is an update to the excellent Lucy interview by Susanna Rustin in the Guardian which was posted a few days ago.

In the comments section, Susanna has responded to the comments and included a note from Lucy to her which was sent after the interview was filed. The message is located about 6 from the bottom on Page 2 of the comments

Thanks for comments. Lucy Lawless sent me the following, which I didn't see until after I'd filed the interview, so I'll post it here.

"I forgot to mention the most important thing of all, the 'why must we save the Arctic'. When you spend so much time with people who understand the issues, you forget that most people may not be aware of the vital role the Arctic ice-cap plays in stabilising the world's weather patterns, and that our continued consumption of fossil fuels is effectively destroying this, the world's 'air conditioner'.

Now that climate change is causing a disastrous summer ice melt, Big Oil is moving in to dig up more of the stuff which caused the problem in the first place. Lunatic? You bet."

Lucy Attends Woman's Weekly 80th Anniversary Party 15 June 2012

Posted  yesterday the news that Lucy is featured in the 80th Anniversary issue of the New Zealand Woman's Weekly. There is an interview with Lucy - a brief Q & A they asked a selected group of New Zealand women (scans to be up soon). Lucy also attended their glittering party to mark 80 years of the magazine on 15 June 2012.

Lucy sang the song "Somebody Told Me".  Because there isn't footage from this event, here's Lucy singing "Somebody Told Me' from her recent Auckland Concert.
