British actor Julian Sands is missing since last Friday after going hiking in mountains north of Los Angeles. The tone of the reports is 'missing, presumed dead'.

For only society can give or concede it to them; they themselves cannot take it, or give it to themselves.

Auckland's been having a bit of a killer storm as well - 3 dead from unprecedented flooding. 250 mm of rain in 24 hours, with half of that falling in a two-hour period yesterday.

Airport flooded and closed for two days, multiple roads destroyed and hundreds of houses wasted. All from flash flooding.

Good pics here: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/wea...rd-in-auckland
