She resorts to western medicine and steals some of Suffocate’s nail clippings to get a DNA test done. The DNA results come back with bad news: Suffo and Puleng’s DNA are incompatible and they will not be able to produce a baby.

Most South African men can tell you what’s in every obscure alcoholic drink and where you can get the best one, but if there’s one drink men should know more about, it’s Rooibos tea.

This June is National Men’s Health Month, which is celebrated across the country with screenings, health fairs and other educational activities to encourage men to make their health a priority.

Men’s health has already shown a steep decline in recent years as chronic lifestyle diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and cancer tightens its grip. Aside from cigarette smoking and poor diet, alcoholism is considered a leading cause of many of these debilitating conditions.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recently declared South Africa the drunkest country in Africa, consuming 27 litres of pure alcohol per capita annually, which is about 53% more than the rest of the continent. Continue reading

Recently Statistics SA announced that the country’s unemployment rate had jumped in the first quarter of 2016 from 24.5% to 26.7%. This means that today there are 8.9 million South Africans who want to work, are able to work, but are not able to find employment and most of these willing citizens are of South Africa’s youth.

Besides data from other emerging world economies suggesting that entrepreneurial activity increases job security and contributes positively towards Gross Domestic Product (GDP), the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) report notes that in South Africa such activity remains considerably low, and although it has increased marginally over the last 10 years, in 2014 it dropped by a staggering 34% (from 10.6% to 7%). The report further states that there has been an increase in women’s entrepreneurship primarily due to government support, but that the perception of opportunities to start a business, and confidence in one’s own abilities to do so, remains alarmingly low compared to other sub-Saharan African countries.

Black Sails 2014While you can bet a treasure chest of gold, diamonds and pearls that the food served on the set of the pirate drama series Black Sails (the fourth season is currently filming in Cape Town), is nothing but the best, the menu aboard ships in the Golden Age of Piracy in the  early 1700s was anything but nutritious, appealing or even edible!  Pirates lived in cramped, miserable conditions and suffered from debilitating diseases, with the majority of them dying before the age of 30 as a result of warfare, the gallows or indeed a very poor diet.

Shipboard food was limited to what would keep in the course of prolonged voyages. Bread came in the form of hardtack or ‘ship’s biscuit’, rock hard squares of flour-and-water dough that after a few weeks at sea was inevitably infested with weevils. Beef was salted or dried and so tough that sailors often carved it into buttons and belt buckles. Beer, ale, and rum were the choice of drink since all kept better than fresh water. Continue reading
