STUFF!

It’s finally coming! Legendary Jan Keizer and Anny Schilder, the original voices of BZN, will be taking to the Silverstar stage for the officialBZN 40 Year Celebration.

During May 2016, the South African public can gear up for a trip down memory lane when BZN’s Jan Keizer and Anny Schilder will perform at Silverstar, accompanied by a world class band. As music icons of the 70’s and 80’s, Jan and Anny received numerous gold and platinum awards for their work.

Their story started back in 1965 when a group of friends from the Dutch town of Volendam started making music under the name of BZN, short for ‘Band Zonder Naam’. Eleven years later they had their big breakthrough with the number one song ‘Mon Amour’, with the fabulous vocals of beautiful Anny Schilder and Jan Keizer as the popular male lead singer.

Johannesburg/Lagos: Insane antics, crazy stunts and life-threatening feats of senseless folly are all part of the scenery in Ridiculousness Africa, the new comedy video clip show that will have you gasping into your evening cocoa (MTV, DStv channel 130).

Hosted by small-but-perfectly-formed SAFTA award-winning actor, comedian and TV host,Thomas Gumede, Ridiculousness Africa hunts the length and breadth of the internet on your behalf seeking out the weirdest, the whackiest, and uncontestably the most stupid stunts ever committed to video.  So, if you love to watch people doing strange, unusual and frankly idiotic things in boats, cars, bikes, pools, on trampolines and more, then this is the show for you.

Gumede will be joined by co-hosts, co-conspirators and “Club 808” presenter Boity Thulo and Nigerian comic genius Basketmouth as they laugh, shriek, hide behind the sofa, and generally dissect the jaw-dropping exploits of irrational peeps who just can’t control the urge to do something incredibly stupid in front of a camera.  Continue reading

OUTCRY FROM PUBLIC AND ANIMAL PROTECTION GROUPS ABOUT THE FRANCHISE’S NON-COMMITMENT TO SOURCE EGGS FROM CAGE-FREE HENS IN SOUTH AFRICA

THOUSANDS SUPPORT PETITION AGAINST MCDONALD’S SA TO STOP SUFFERING OF HENS AND COMMIT TO CAGE-FREE EGGS!

An online petition supported by thousands and additional pressure from four local animal protection groups might just get McDonald’s South Africa’s attention to source eggs from cage-free hens in South Africa, despite the popular franchise’s refusal to commit when appeals were made earlier this year. To date, more than 16,400 people have signed the petition.

During September 2015, McDonald’s internationally committed to phasing out battery cages from their supply chain in Canada and the United States within 10 years (following previous animal welfare commitments in Europe, North America and South America). However, corresponding commitments have not been made by McDonald’s South Africa.  Continue reading

With April the month of health awareness, it’s yet another reason to try and kick that cigarette habit. Though smoking is on the decrease, there are still an estimated 7 million people in South Africa aged 18 or older who need their fix. Nicotine is a powerful drug that develops dependence in its users, and it’s ranked third on the list of the world’s most addictive substances, behind hard drugs like crack cocaine and heroin.

Now a new wave of people are discovering the proven benefits of exercise in their quest to kick the habit. While smoking aids like e-cigarettes and nicotine gum end up prolonging the dependence on nicotine, exercise is a potent alternative to the craving, and helps develop a healthy mind and a healthy body.

Johannesburg, 26 April 2016 The recent anti-rape protests at Rhodes University by students and staff members highlight an important and disturbing issue in South African society, where it is estimated that one in five women are victims of rape and other forms of gender-based violence (GBV) each year.

Not only have the protests brought to the fore the scourge that is rape and GBV, they have also  sparked a call for a fundamental shift in our collective consciousness regarding the manner in which rape and GBV are dealt with, as well as how the unequal power relationships between genders should be addressed.

In the spirit of joining this call and strengthening its voice, youth leadership development organisation loveLife extends its support for the protests and its core underlying message – that we as responsible, aware and engaged citizens do not stand for rape and other forms of GBV; that we see it as our duty to protect and uphold the rights of those who have been marginalised and made vulnerable in a society that has for far too long been complicit in reinforcing unequal gender power relationships.

If you’ve ever caught yourself replicating dance moves from a music video, then you’re direct proof of the power of a video as a branding tool. To recognise both the creative process and the value of a music video in the building of an artist as brand, the Loeries have created a dedicated music video category. Entries for this year are open, and artists or producers creating innovative music videos are encouraged to enter their work.

Last year New Monday received a silver Loerie for the production of Thee More Shallow’s 2am video. Prior to the category being established, music videos for artists such as the Die Antword, Spoek Mathambo and Skrillex have been awarded Loeries for creative excellence. Continue reading

My Citi Bus Stations vandalised DuNoon Uzasa Phoenix

My Citi Bus Stations vandalised DuNoon Uzasa Phoenix

STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER: TRANSPORT FOR CAPE TOWN, COUNCILLOR BRETT HERRON

The City of Cape Town is extremely concerned about the devastating consequences that the violent protests and vandalism of MyCiTi stations has on the law-abiding residents of Dunoon.

Over the past six weeks, at least three of the MyCiTi stations along Potsdam Road had to be closed for several days, denying MyCiTi commuters from Dunoon access to essential public transport services to get to work to provide for their families. Furthermore, the Phoenix station on Omuramba Road has been closed since 15 March 2016.

I have extracted commuter statistics for the MyCiTi stations at Usasaza, Dunoon, Killarney and Phoenix to determine how many of our residents have been affected. Today I can confirm that over 3 000 commuters from Dunoon and the surrounding areas have been adversely affected on a daily basis by the thuggish behaviour of a small group of troublemakers who have no regard for the law.
