A Golden Bay company has removed clothing items with images of Hindu deity Ganesh off its website after a complaint from the Universal Society of Hinduism.

Mariposa Clothing, based in Takaka, also apologised to anyone who felt offended by the items.

“Mariposa has removed the pants this morning,” Mariposa Clothing’s Tracey Brignole told the Herald this morning.

“It was certainly never our intention to cause any offence and we apologise to anyone who did take offence.”

Upset Hindus called on Mariposa Clothing to stop selling “Ganesh pants” and apologise to the community.

A statement issued by Hindu statesman and president of the Universal Society of Hinduism Rajan Zed in Nevada over the weekend called on the Kiwi clothing retailer to remove the offending garments from its physical stores and website.

The Cost of Creating and Launching a Business Website

To make your mark online, you need to create a business website.

While it may sound difficult and expensive to start a business site from scratch, there are options for all budgets and levels of expertise.

What are the basic website building costs?

It’s difficult to estimate how much your small business’s website will cost from the outset. Numerous factors, at multiple stages in the process, can affect the final price.

Here’s how to make your website more accessible

There are many things to consider when setting up a website, and accessibility is one factor that can sometimes be overlooked. An accessible website is one that’s optimized for all people, including those with impaired vision or hearing, motor difficulties, or learning disabilities. 

Having an accessible website is not only a responsibility against discrimination, but it’s also a legal requirement in several countries, and you open yourself up to lawsuits by not adhering to the guidelines. 

Additionally, from a business marketing perspective, the design and functionality features mean that accessible websites perform better and are higher ranking in search engine lists. Your website is therefore more likely to gain attention from a larger potential audience when it’s accessible to everyone.

Here are the facts

According to WHO, over a billion people in the world – 15% of the global population – are living with some form of disability, and

Dominion Voting Systems reacts to Sidney Powell election lawsuit

The company provided a bulleted list of claims it says were not true – from foreign ties to hackability.

DENVER — A company that has been named in numerous election fraud theories – many with little or no evidence to back them – has taken aim at comments from one of its biggest detractors.

Dominion Voting Systems, which maintains voting machines in Georgia and other states, laid out a long list of claims by attorney Sidney Powell which it said are false – and provably so.

The company described many of Powell’s statements as part of a “bizarre election fraud conspiracy” that would have required unreasonably coordinated actions between thousands of people from the state to the local level – including themselves.

“This quite simply did not occur,” the company said in a statement released on Thursday.

“The allegations included in the draft complaint are baseless, senseless, physically impossible, and
