About a year ago, I was diagnosed with a heart condition called atrial fibrillation and prescribed 40 mg of verapamil three times a day. The heart specialist tried cardioversion (a short procedure involving an electric shock to the heart) in an attempt to stabilise my heart rhythm. Before this could be done, I had to take warfarin, 5-6 mg/day. The cardioversion was not successful, and my GP advised me to carry on with the warfarin at a slightly lower dosage in addition to the verapamil. He explained that staying on both these medications would cut my chances of having a stroke to 1 per cent while, without them, the risk is 5 per cent.

Karen Olsson (” Up Against Wal-Mart “), a former editor for the Texas Observer, writes primarily about labor and politics for such publications as Texas Monthly, The Nation, and the Washington Post.

James Whitlow Delano (” A Tale of Two Chinas “) won the prestigious 2000 Alfred Eisenstaedt Award from the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism for his photography from China.

Currently the dean of the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley, Orville Schell (” A Tale of Two Chinas “) has written nine books about China and is a frequent commentator on Chinese issues.

The editorial announces that members from Dunedin and Auckland have joined the PHANZA committee to improve national representation and accountability.

In heritage related issues Tony Nightingale expresses his concerns that the plans for the Tomb of an Unknown Warrior will destroy the approach and landscaping of the National War Memorial;  Michael Kelly writes about the loss of New Zealand’s coastal archaeology due to increased subdivision and development and Jan Harris talks about her experiences planning a new museum in a historic building in Otaki.

There is also a review of the Southern People Southern Land exhibition at the Otago Museum and Kelly’s regular web-site review  looks at a virtual history tour of the Port of Los Angeles.
