Again I have corrected "Glide down the river in British style with a uniformed boatsman." to "Glide down the river in Cambridge University style with a uniformed boatsman." for the very simple reason punts that the Brits do NOT go around in punts, you Do NOT find punts across Britain. You DO find them in Cambridge. they are charateristics of Cambridge University.
Earthquake warning box
I am toning down the Warning Box about earthquake damage in Christchurch. The information is incorrect and unduly negative. The 100,000 figure equates to the estimated number of insurance claims that the Earthquake Commission (EQC) - a specialist earthquake insurance scheme - had expected to receive as a result of the earthquake. The local newspaper reported has reported about 75,000 claims lodged, with only 5,000 claims costing more than $100,000, suggesting the building needs to be totally replaced, as a typical NZ house would cost at least $100,000 to rebuild. - Huttite 07:41, 6 October 2010 (EDT)
