New Zealand's Maori King Snubs Prince William











Prime Minister John Key expressed disappointment at the snub, which would have involved Prince William visiting King Tuheitia during his April 7-16 trip to New Zealand with wife Catherine and baby son Prince George But King Tuheitia's office rejected the review offer, arguing the 90 minutes allotted for the visit to the Maori leader's base in the North Island was not moved here long enough for proper protocols to be observed. His representatives also slammed the "faceless bureaucrats" who organised the itinerary, accusing them of adopting an inflexible approach when dictating the terms of the proposed visit. After agonising over what to do, the Maori leader decided not to agree to the meeting and sent a personal letter to the royal couple outlining his reasons, his office said in a read this statement. "A senior rangatira (chief) noted that the king and the Kiingitanga (the movement he leads) are not some carnival act to be rolled out at the beck and call of anyone," the statement said.

It would have put the king in an impossible situation." Key said 90 minutes was a "quite generous" amount of time, given the royals' busy schedule, and it was a shame the visit to the Turangawaewae marae, or meeting place, would not go ahead. "It's rather disappointing because I think Prince William would have enjoyed going to Turangawaewae," he told TV3. "But it was King Tuheitia's people who said 90 minutes is not long enough. If you look at (the royals') programme, there are very few places where they're there for an hour, let alone 90 minutes.

Los Angeles Approves Sweeping E-cigarette Restrictions











The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday approved sweeping new regulations that would treat e-cigarettes like conventional cigarettes, after one of the most personal debates to be heard on this site the council floor in years. On a 14-0 vote, lawmakers outlawed "vaping" -- the practice of inhaling the vapors produced by e-cigarettes -- in most work sites and many public places, including parks and certain beaches. Lawmakers voted to continue allowing e-cigarette use in so-called vaping lounges, where patrons can try the various e-juices that are loaded into the battery-powered devices. And they narrowly defeated a push by the e-cigarette industry to let the practice continue in 21-and-over establishments, such as bars and nightclubs. The debate saw lawmakers share their own experiences with tobacco and the hazards that come with it. Councilman Mitch O'Farrell, who pushed for the new restrictions, spoke of his unhappiness at breathing secondhand smoke during his days as Kim Kardashian a waiter in the early 1990s.
