The country's previous foreign minister, Winston Peters, is also Māori. "I'm privileged to be able to lead the conversation in the foreign space," Mahuta said, according to national broadcaster Radio New Zealand. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's center-left Labour Party was reelected in a landslide last month, winning 49.1% of the vote according to preliminary results. Taking 64 of the 120 seats, her party was the first to win a majority since the country's current political system was introduced in 1996. Ardern's incoming parliament looks set to be one of the most diverse in the world. "This is a cabinet and an executive that is based on merit that also happen to be incredibly diverse and I am proud of that," Ardern said Monday as she announced her cabinet. Who is Nanaia Mahuta?

The Beatles All-New Editions of The Beatles 1 Pair Beautifully Restored Promotional Films and Videos with Brand New Stereo and Surround Audio Mixes Beatles 1+ Deluxe Edition Celebrates the Sight & Sound of The Beatles in 50 Films & Videos London – September 15, 2015After The Beatles stopped touring, and because travelling around the globe to promote new releases was impossible, the band increasingly made what could be described as “mini movies”. These pioneering promotional films and videos helped to define the way we have come to watch music, not least because The Beatles approached filming with the same ease and innovative spirit they brought to the recording studio, exploring new creative possibilities with infectious delight. Showcasing the band’s filmed work to accompany their 27 No.1, U.K. and U.S. singles, The Beatles 1 is newly restored and expanded in multiple configurations for global release on November 6 by Apple Corps Ltd/UMG. It’s The Beatles, as you’ve never seen them before. 1. 1.

The Path To Peace Is Paved With Empathy The theme for 2020’s International Day of Peace, observed today, is ‘Shaping Peace Together.’ With the isolation brought on by the pandemic, that may seem harder than ever, but it will truly take togetherness to emerge as a more peaceful world. Where unity is perhaps most crucial right now, is with regard to the climate emergency — and it is an emergency. The health of our soil is also something that can make or break our survival as a species. It’s also true that sometimes, before we can promote peace amongst others, we have to find it within ourselves. Whatever brings you solace, take the time to put it into practice, both for yourself and those around you. The International Day of Peace was created to be an annual call for the world to respect 24 hours of non-violence and cease fire against our foes. It doesn’t seem like too much to ask for all of humanity to be kinder. The United Nations welcomes everyone to participate in their UN75 Survey. Photo credit: Julian Lennon.
