new zealand pm jacinda ardern says shes frustrated she hasnt been allowed to take a pay cut

Jacinda Ardern has expressed her frustration in still being on full pay two months after she agreed to take a 20 per cent cut.

The New Zealand Prime Minister announced in April her NZ$470,000 a year salary would be slashed by one fifth for six months in a show of solidarity with Kiwis struggling financially during the recent coronavirus lockdown.  

Government ministers, Opposition Leader Simon Bridges and top public sector executives will also take a 20 per cent cut while backbench MPs will have their pay slashed by 10 per cent. 

Ms Ardern says she was forced to accept her continued full pay by law but said donating a proportion of her salary to charity would be problematic.

The legislation was passed in parliament in May but took four weeks to be signed off by the Remuneration Authority.

Ms Ardern has assured the cuts will apply for six months when they take effect on July 9.

‘What I am frustrated by is how long it’s taken,’ Ms Ardern told reporters on Tuesday. 

‘That is frustrating, but regardless … it will last for six months.’

‘One of the frustrations for us is, I did test whether I could just not accept my full pay but I was told ‘No’. By law I couldn’t do that. 

‘So we changed the law, now we’re waiting for it to be implemented by the Remuneration Authority.’ 

‘Frustratingly, the simplest option was to change the law but unfortunately that’s what is taking the longest.’

Remuneration Authority chairwoman Dame Fran Wilde​ said it had to make sure the pay cuts were fairly set.

‘There has been absolutely no delay on the part of the Remuneration Authority. This was done very fast,’ she told Stuff.

‘We had to do all of that testings of the numbers. We then had written it up in legal form, we had sent it to Parliamentary Council Office, who had also done there checking – which takes a little while – and then we signed it and it was gazetted. And that all happened in less than four weeks.’

Frontline public sector workers such as police officers and health care professionals won’t be affected by the pay cut. 

Ms Ardern will take a NZ$47,000 pay cut over half a year.

Deputy prime minister Winston Peters will go from $334,734 a year to $267,788 for the six months while ministers will see their $296,007 salaries fall to $236,806. 

Ms Ardern said the government canvassed the idea of donating sacrificed salaries to charities.

‘Giving it to charities did open up wider issues. First, we had to demonstrate what we said we were going to do. Second, it then raises the question of who a member of the Government would choose as a charity, and that could raise issues in itself,’ she told NewsHub

ACT leader David Seymour, who had been calling for MP salary cuts before Ardern’s announcement in April has volunteered to take a 20 per cent cut, which he will donate to charity.

‘I’ll be asking the public which organisation I should donate the remaining part of my salary to,’ Mr Seymour said.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison rejected calls to follow Ms Ardern’s lead in having his taxpayer-funded $549,250 salary slashed, despite the devastating loss of jobs as a result of the pandemic 

‘I know people are taking a hard hit every day in their businesses,’ he told radio station 2GB in April.

‘But I don’t think it’s actually helpful in a crisis to start having people turn on each other about who’s getting what.’

Jennifer was one of the nominees this year for Lead Actress in a Drama series for her work in Apple TV Plus’ The Morning Show.

She was nominated alongside The Crown’s Olivia Colman, Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer, Ozark’s Laura Linney, Killing Eve’s Sandra Oh and Euphoria’s Zendaya – with the latter star scooping the award.

Jennifer previously won an Emmy in 2002 for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role of Rachel in Friends.  

She also earned four more Emmy nominations for her time on Friends, plus Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her stint on 30 Rock in 2009.

The Morning Show marks Aniston’s first return to TV in a starring role, playing Alex Levy in The Morning Show, inspired by Brian Stelter’s book Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV.

Alex Levy is an anchor on a hit morning show in New York, whose partner gets fired after a sexual misconduct scandal as she fights to keep her job from emerging reporter Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon).

Jennifer’s appearance comes after she had a virtual reunion with ex-husband Brad Pitt during a star-studded table read of the Fast Times at Ridgemont High script last week.

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards took place with a largely virtual ceremony due to the pandemic on Sunday night. 

Producers sent over 130 home video kits to stars for their remote speeches, and Jimmy Kimmel anchored the show from the Staples Centre as other presenters delivered gongs to some of the winners’ homes in full tuxedo hazmat gear. 

Host Jimmy, 52, admitted the traditional glitz and glamour could end up a ‘beautiful disaster’ as the Emmys became the latest major awards show to grapple with holding a ceremony during a still-raging pandemic.

Choosing the comedian to emcee the ceremony reverses course from last year’s no-host ceremony.

Emmy Awards 2020: Hugh Jackman is gracious in defeat

Hugh Jackman has long been considered the ‘Nicest Guy in Hollywood’.

And the 51-year-old Australian actor lived up to his reputation on Sunday, during the first-ever virtual Emmy Awards ceremony.

In a live stream from his New York home, Hugh pumped his fist in the air and cheered on Mark Ruffalo, after losing out to the American actor in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Category.

Frank hoodwinked Long Island’s Roslyn High School, conning his way to millions to fund his extravagant lifestyle, before being sent to prison in 2006 for larceny.  

Hugh’s performance quickly received rave reviews, with USA TODAY branding it ‘great acting’, while Decider called it an ‘Oscar-worthy role’.

In an interview with Variety in April, Hugh described the opportunity to portray the real-life school superintendent as ‘fascinating’.    

‘The role itself was something different from what I’ve done. I liked the idea of someone who is super successful, very, very good at what he did, beloved by the community – and fell down this slippery path,’ he said. 

Hugh also described playing the villain as ‘delicious’ in an interview with Collider.

‘As an actor, it just had so much to play with, and so many things that I’ve never really had the opportunity to play with. He’s seemingly very charming, but also just a viper… Those things, I just found really exciting to play,’ he said.

private details of almost 20000 australian university students leaked online in massive data breach

Personal information belonging to almost 20,000 University of Tasmania students was mistakenly made public for more than five months due to security settings being configured incorrectly.

Affected students were on Monday informed of the breach, which made their data available to anyone with a UTAS email address from late February to August 11.

UTAS says analysis of the files has revealed a ‘number of users’ with university emails have accessed the information.

The data, which contains personally identifiable information, is used to inform how the university supports students in their studies, UTAS says.

Bank account details were not part of the data breach.

‘Security settings on shared files were unintentionally configured incorrectly, which made the information visible and accessible to unauthorised users,’ the university said in a statement.

The university says it became aware of the breach on August 11 and has engaged independent experts to assist.

‘I sincerely apologise to all students who have been affected by this incident,’ University of Tasmania Vice-Chancellor Rufus Black said.

‘We have undertaken a thorough review of how this information became accessible and took immediate steps to ensure it is secure.’

UTAS is in the process of contacting people who accessed the data and has ‘sought assurance’ that the files, or screenshots or shared copies of the files, have been permanently deleted.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Rufus Black added every student affected was on Monday contacted 'to explain what happened, to apologise, and to offer support.' He said the university (pictured) engaged independent experts to assist in securing the information

Information belonging to the 19,900 students was made public through Microsoft Office365 platform SharePoint, which is used to store, share and access files. 

Access privileges were incorrectly configured on an Office365 application, which displays content to users based on those privileges.

‘There is no evidence this data breach was a result of malicious activity,’ UTAS said.

‘The system has now been correctly configured.’

UTAS has set up a hotline for students with questions or concerns.

The university has since established a dedicated support line ¿ 1800 019 897 ¿ to assist students with any questions or concerns about the incident or their information. Pictured: A university student studying
