Cricket players' ban reduced after homophobic and racial slurs

Two Hawke's Bay cricket players banned for the season over racial and homophobic slurs are back on the cricket pitch.
The match between year 11-13 students was called off on January 21, after the two players made both racial and homophobic slurs towards the Western Districts XI, which had players of Sri Lankan, Indian and Pakistani heritage.
Hawke’s Bay Cricket Association (HBCA) did not name the players, but Stuff understands the pair are the sons of former Central Districts representatives Mike Pawson and Craig Findlay, who is chief executive of HBCA.
The initial ban was appealed and the pair are already back playing cricket. Race Relations Commissioner Meng Foon has criticised the reduction in penalty​ and called for a restoration process.
What do you think of the ban?

Our next exhibition opening is this Sunday at 3pm. Everyone is welcome to attend. Admission is free, there is no need to book - drinks and nibbles will be provided.

Romuald Rudzki, the author of ‘Prealism and the First Prealist - a guide to the new way of painting' is holding an exhibition alongside his father-in-law Cornelius Vickers. Here’s a bit more about their work:

This is Prealism – an exhibition by Dr Romuald Rudzki
Rom was taught by the English artist Chris Welsh between 1969-1976. He received the Financial Times’ David Thomas Award in 1996 and obtained his PhD in 1998.

Rom lives on a lifestyle block in the foothills of the Tararua Ranges in New Zealand with his wife Alison and a menagerie of domesticated and wild animals.

Rom’s paintings are in both the traditional figurative style as well as the Prealist method which requires kenosis (emptying of the artist’s will) in order to allow those elements of art that exist before (‘Pre’) the artist (such as type of paint, type of surface, gravity and temperature) to create new work through the medium of the artist.

A defining feature of Prealism is that no two people will see the same painting in the same way, as each person will view the painting based upon their own ‘vocabulary of experience’ which includes the ‘found images’ within the painting

Cornelius Vickers at 91

Cornelius (Con) Vickers is having his first solo exhibition at age 91. Born in 1930 in Seaton, Country Durham England, Con started painting at school during the war. At age 12 he won 1st prize for a painting of a spitfire titled ‘Plane over France’ which came with prize money of half a crown or two shillings and sixpence, a princely sum for a young boy.

His working life was as a bricklayer then as a building manager before accepting the offer of early retirement at age 60. He then took evening art classes and after the death of his beloved wife Sheila, emigrated to New Zealand to be with his daughter Alison, son-in-law Romuald and grandson Rob. Con now lives next door to them with a garden he cultivates and the canaries he breeds.

“My painting takes my mind off everything else,” says Con “it takes all your stress and worries away.”

His art works include local landmarks such as the windmills, as well as paintings of native birds, and some composite pictures of several scenes.
The exhibitions run until Tuesday the 6th of April.
