Five theses on the non-existence of the present

1 Wars are fought first in the imagination. The invasion of the Waikato was planned in Auckland; the city's toponyms record its guilt. Pt Chevalier had a firing range; the suburb is named after a top marksman. On nearby Meola Reef a dummy Maori pa was built; soldiers shelled and sniped at it.

2 The photo was taken in the German port of Kiel in 1916. It shows mines being loaded onto SMS Wolf, a raider headed for the Pacific. In April 1919 Edward Whare & two friends were riding down a beach near Raglan. They spotted a strange object, stopped. The smoke column was seen miles away. The war had taken its last victims.

3 Events metastasise. In 1863 imperial troops moving through Ramarama's puriri forest were ambushed & gunned down by Waikato guerrillas. 80 years later Private Bryan Sharp fled from nearby Ravensthorpe convalescent hospital, hid in a remnant of the ancient forest, & shot himself.

4 On an autumn night in 1948 two men - one imaginary, one real - were killed at Auckland's Town Hall. Joe Burns, a professional Canadian-Hawai'ian boxer, lay still after being smashed by local fighter Tommy Downes. Burns' real name was Peni Latinidavetalevu. He was not a pro.

Latinidavetalevu was an illegal migrant from Fiji. He had stowed away on a ship to Auckland & created Joe Burns, complete with a publicity photo & stories of US fights. Fijian police saw the photo & recognised him. He would have been arrested, had he survived his fight.

5 Auckland had a blood moon last month. I don't like that phrase, nor the overproduced photos of the event. Neither can convey the peculiar sense of intimacy I felt, as I looked into the ruddy face leaning over Glen Eden's rooftops. TE Hulme died in 1917, but he saw my moon:

A touch of cold in the Autumn night—
I walked abroad,
And saw the ruddy moon lean over a hedge
Like a red-faced farmer.
I did not stop to speak, but nodded,
And round about were the wistful stars
With white faces like town children.

Any programmer that has used STATA for a while has probably used the option for their STATA assignment. You too could testify that you have used it in your STATA assignment help services But to some, it's not that very clear on how it works. But the simplest explanation that I can give about it is that it tries to process a command by grouping the variables. I used your statistics homework help services and I know a thing or two about your STATA team.

Do you have a C++ homework help tutor from Canada? I have a small programming assignment that can best be sorted by a C++ expert. The only reason why I want a programming homework help experts from our country is that I want someone who clearly understands our system. If you do not have any tutor from Canada the only other country I would consider is the United States. I will be waiting for your communication on the same.

I want to be honest with you. I am not the type of person who easily gets annoyed at people. Three months ago I sent you an email seeking communications system assignment help. My task was completed on time but after a struggle with the first Matlab assignment help, I was assigned. He was not responsive at all. I only enjoyed working with you after I demanded for a new Matlab homework help solver. The new person I was given was amazing. Always available when needed and a good communicator. I don’t know whether you allow people to decide who should handle their assignments because if it was possible then that is what I would do for the rest of my assignments.

I have a very urgent assignment which is required in less than 6 hours. Part of the work is done and therefore I need an economics assignment help expert to complete part three of the question and check whether I have done the other parts correctly. My budget for it is very minimal and therefore I don’t expect you to charge me more than $50 for the small remaining part. The beauty is that if I am happy with your solutions I'll need your economics homework help services again.
