Big Food and mainstream medicine have been
scaring Americans about whole milk for decades.
You see, the food industry — with the full backing of mainstream medicine — has spent hundreds of
millions of dollars to convince Americans that a
low-fat diet prevents obesity, heart disease and

into a highly glycemic food, which spikes your
blood sugar and significantly raises your risk of diabetes.

The income that the City receives from rates and services enables the delivery of top quality municipal services. The City therefore continues its focus on those who are able to pay, but refuse to do so, while at the same time offering assistance to those who are experiencing financial difficulties. Read more below:
In the current financial year, the City of Cape Town made close to R3 billion available to provide rates rebates and indigent relief to qualifying residents. The proposed funding earmarked for social assistance in the next financial year is currently being discussed as part of the budget process.
‘It is really important that we all contribute our fair share for services. Those who are in financial difficulties must approach us for relief. Hoping that the debt will go away or ignoring the problem is not the answer, and there is help on offer. As a caring City, we make allowance for residents who are unable to pay for basic services to make representation to the City for relief, and for those who are struggling to pay their municipal accounts to enter into an agreed arrangement/instalment plan to pay off their arrears.
‘If those who have the means to pay refuse to pay for services that they use, it has a marked impact on the sustainability of the City. It is vital that we instil a culture of payment. Residents need to acknowledge that while we all have rights, we all have responsibilities too. If any resident’s water is restricted, electricity supply disconnected, prepaid electricity purchases limited or if legal action is instituted against them, this is done as a last resort. This only occurs if residents have ignored all the notices sent to them and they have not made any attempt to obtain assistance from the City. We must continue to focus on financial resilience in order to continue providing services,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Finance, Alderman Ian Neilson. Continue reading
There were tears of joy and broad smiles, as well as a sense of relief in the Springbok Sevens camp following their tournament win in Canada this weekend, which came just at the right time for the Blitzboks to gain momentum for the rest of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.
Siviwe Soyizwapi, who had the honour of captaining the Blitzboks in their final two matches of the HSBC Canada Sevens in BC Place on Sunday after Philip Snyman was ruled out due to injury, said they felt a lot of mixed emotions in Vancouver.
“We needed this victory,” said Soyizwapi.
“We are rebuilding the squad and it was such a relief for us to get back to winning ways. This win was building and building, and it was just reward for the hard work.
“This win was very emotional for us as we worked so hard the last couple of weeks. We have smiles on the faces now as the massive efforts got reward. It was a perfect weekend where so many things came together for us, guys trusting and backing each other, all buying to the game plan and the squad working as brothers.”
The Celeb Feasts with Zola show has been cooking up fantastic recipes, with some of South Africa’s best-loved personalities bringing laughs, some moving moments and lots of fun into award-winning, television chef Zola Nene’s kitchen.
In March the wonderful lineup continues, kicked off on 5 March with the soulful singer-songwriter Zahara, accompanied by her mentor Mojalefa ‘Majakes’ Thebe, the Sowetan-born singer, songwriter and music producer. Zahara who has been singing, literally since she was 6 years old, is best known for her award-winning debut album Loliwe. Last year this lady with the big heart had a traumatic experience when she was stabbed by people she was trying to give food to, miraculously managing to escape before they could get into her car. The two good friends, with the help of Zola, cooked up a wonderful meal. Starting with mussels in an aromatic white wine broth, a main meal of rice stuffed pork chops with mustard and cultured cream, they ended off this taste-sensation with froyo sundaes made with peanut chocolate sauce and praline.
STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S MAYORAL COMMITTEE MEMBER FOR ENERGY AND CLIMATE CHANGE, COUNCILLOR PHINDILE MAXITI
Contrary to what is being claimed in public, the suburb of Khayelitsha is not in utter darkness and the City has been working hard over the past years to provide appropriate public lighting in this suburb. Work is ongoing and lighting continues to be rolled out.
As at February 2019, the total number of installed conventional lights in Khayelitsha is 2 251 while the total number of installed high masts lights is 218. This is in accordance with the Khayelitsha Lighting Master Plan which was agreed to with the relevant subcouncil managers of Khayelitsha in November 2017.
The plan includes the installation of 33 additional high-mast lights in Khayelitsha. Conventional lighting is planned for the majority of primary arterial, residential collector roads (low-to-moderate capacity roads), secondary arterial and commercial roads which were identified for conventional streetlight installation.
The planned new street- and high-mast lighting installations for Khayelitsha as from the financial years between 2018/19 and 2022/23 are as follows (subject to finalisation, due process and engagements): Continue reading

Junior Springbok coach Chean Roux would have been excused if he experienced some form of déjà vu on Tuesday when the SA Rugby Academy squad took on his old team, the DHL Stormers, in a friendly hit-out that would have stood the youngsters in good stead as they stepped up their preparations for the rest of the season.
Roux, who is also at the helm of the SA Rugby Academy, represented the Capetonians in Vodacom Super Rugby during his playing days. He was very grateful to his former team-mate and current DHL Stormers head coach Robbie Fleck, for agreeing to the “friendly match” in Bellville.
The SA Rugby Academy squad gathered in Stellenbosch last week Wednesday for the second of three training camps, and the session against the DHL Stormers marked their second “live” hit-out against opposition teams, in line with the Academy’s objective to develop top-class players.
The teams took to the field at DHL Western Province’s High Performance Centre in Bellville, where Roux had the opportunity to guide his team hands-on during a series of short breaks.
The Minister of Social Development, Albert Fritz, has condemned the shooting in Pook se Bos, Rylands, that resulted in the death of a three-year-old boy who was caught in the crossfire and subsequently died in hospital.
The incident reportedly took place on Monday at 10:15am at Pook se Bos informal settlement. Unidentified men in a white light delivery vehicle shot in the direction of the child’s home.
MEC Fritz said, “We are deploying a social worker to investigate the needs of those affected by the shooting. If you have been affected by the incident and require psycho-social support, please contact your local DSD office. Alternatively, you can call the DSD Hotline on 0800 220 250 for support.”
