Demographics of South Africa
Over the years, this show has included some fascinating and rare interviews you will be hard pressed to find elsewhere. Tonight is no exception. Not only do I speak to a man who is a true aficionado of serial killer lore, but he comes from the very place tonight's topic took and takes place. And the place, dear listener, is somewhere we in the West seldom gets too much information about. I am of course talking about the great nation of South Africa.

In the fight against global warming we're constantly told to do our bit to reduce green house gas emissions. However, a claim circulating that just ‘100 companies are responsible for 71% of global emissions' can make any individual effort seem futile. But does this claim mean what you think it means? We look into this and the claim that the pandemic pushed South African stress levels up by 56%. With guests Abbas Panjwani from Fullfact and Kirsten Cosser from Africa Check.

Dads need to help boys understand and shape masculinity. In years past, fathers were often "there, but not there," according to Craig Wilkinson, a dad of two and founder of Father a Nation, a South African nonprofit that addresses gender-based violence, crime and fatherlessness by restoring and equipping men to be nation-builders, fathers and role models. Dads focused on providing for their families, as that's what they were taught. They didn't engage emotionally because their parents didn't emotionally engage with them -- and because few people recognized fathers' role in the emotional development of children. Now we know that fathers are critically important to their children's well-being -- to the world's well-being. "Boys look to older men to model for them how to be a man," Craig says. The question boys are often asking (whether they verbalize it or not) is Am I man enough? Do I have what it takes? When boys aren't taught to harness their strength and drives, they may behave in ways that harm themselves and others. But "if a boy is seen and validated...and taught to use his drives and his strengths for good, there's no need for him to hurt himself or misuse his strength in any way," Craig says. Consistently "being there" for our boys is key. "If they consistently know you are there and the door's open, they will come," Craig says. "They will come." Parents, he says, need to "Be there. Be present, be engaged, be there." In this episode, Jen, Janet, & Craig discuss: The changing role of fathers Finding male mentors What boys and girls need from dads Counteracting mixed messages about masculinity Supporting boys through puberty How moms can facilitate father/son relationships Signaling your availability to your son (even if you don't live with him) Making micro-connections A human-first approach Links we mentioned (or should have) in this episode: craigwilko.com -- Craig's website; includes links to his books Father a Nation -- includes link to free online course, No Excuse for Abuse: Why Gender-Based Violence Happens and How We Can Stop It The 12 Dad Verbs Mathew Blades on Healing Generational Trauma -- ON BOYS podcast Love Bridges: Why Moments of Micro-Connection Matter, by Maggie Dent Need help with your boys?

On the equity investment spectrum from venture capital at one end to public markets at the other, private equity occupies a vast area in the middle. A successful private equity strategy is a hybrid of those concepts, with venture capital influences like growth and scale and public market influences like strong cash flows and solid assets. Each market is different. In South Africa, the private equity industry is based on relationships and the best deals are done in an elite club. In the UK, the market is far more welcoming to a new entrant and there is a wide network of brokers that can bring access to deals. Joined by Rob Grieve from Westbrooke Alternative Asset Management who recently relocated to the UK to build Westbrooke’s private equity business, we bring you a unique opportunity to learn more about the private equity industry and the differences between the UK and South African markets.We highly recommend giving this show a listen.

The party's existence was kept secret until 1977, and no one outside the CPK knew who its leaders were (the leaders called themselves “Angkar Padevat”). While the Khmer Rouge was in power, they set up policies that disregarded human life and produced repression and massacres on a massive scale. They turned the country into a huge detention center, which later became a graveyard for nearly two million people, including their own members and even some senior leaders. http://www.reyum.org/ (Reyum Institute of Arts and Culture: ) Reyum was a non-profit, non-governmental organisation dedicated to Cambodian arts and culture.

Novels tend to portray alcohol use as tough and gritty, or fun and relaxing or romantic and sexy – take your pick! As a culture we've internalised these ideas which has contributed to the “normalisation” of drinking. My guest this week is trying to create some balance by featuring a sober heroine in her Cyberpunk novel “Bubbles in Space”. Sarah Jensen is a Canadian science fiction author and strongly believes that we need more sober characters in fiction. For people in recovery sober characters are powerful and inspiring. Sarah shares her own recovery story with us and explains how she has drawn upon her struggles with alcohol to create her fictional character: In this Episode Although she dabbled in high school and had the occasional binge at college Sarah's drinking didn't really take off until she became a parent and signed up for the mommy juice culture. In fact when a later diagnosis showed that she had been suffering from post natal depression she realised that she had been self medicating with alcohol for 4 years As a writer she was also part of the creative circles who bought into the belief that alcohol fuels creativity – “write drunk, edit sober” was a popular myth I discuss this myth (and others) in my interview with South African author Eusebius McKaiser in the Tribe Sober podcast, episode 77 – called Busting Sobriety Myths - released in January 2022 At the age of 34 Sarah realised that she was facing some choices – was she going to be a Better Mom – or a Drinker, a Better Wife – or a Drinker, a Better Writer – or a Drinker. She realised that drinking had taken up such a lot of space in her head that there was no room for anything else We discussed the twisted thinking that arises due to the fact that some brilliant writers were alcoholics – of course they were not brilliant BECAUSE they were alcoholics - it was more down to them being so driven that they were able to succeed IN SPITE of being alcoholics… We wondered how much better they could have been and how much more they could have written if they were not drinking excessively. Most functioning alcoholics are using so much energy to hold it all together that when they stop they have a surplus of energy to use for more constructive endeavours – we see this over and over in our tribe Sarah talks of having an “epiphany” one day when she could sense the toxins building up in her body and realised that she was on a slippery slope As a reader she turned to Quitlit - Annie Grace's book (the Naked Mind) make her realise that she had an opportunity and a choice to save herself from a lot of pain Because she hadn't hit “rock bottom” she felt fortunate that she was able to make such a choice before she became totally dependent Sarah realised that sobriety was a gift not a punishment This reframing helps us change our mindset – at Tribe Sober we say that sobriety is an opportunity and that we will gain so much more than we will lose.. Another book which resonated with Sarah was The Biology of Desire by Marc Lewis as she wanted to understand more about how the brain works and the science behind it and as she discovered Mindfulness she read The Power of Now by Eckart Tolle So in fact Sarah tackled the problem intellectually but she also connected with online sober communities to keep her on track. As she began to clock up some sober time she found that one of the important advantages of being in a sober community was that it served as a reminder of how hard it had at the beginning We both have been blown away by the authenticity and kindness of the sober online communities – if you are looking for a small and friendly sober community then go to tribesober.com and hit “join our tribe” Sarah did feel some nostalgia for the “good times” which would have been triggered by Fading Affect Bias – when our brains trick us into forgetting the bad times and remembering the highlights of our drinking days.. I explained that we recommend to our members that they write a Goodbye to Alcohol Letter listing just how unhappy alcohol has made them over the years – something to read back over when FAB strikes – Sarah has promised to write us a Goodbye to Alcohol letter and you can find all of ours on tribesober.com/Inspiration/GoodbyeLetters – send yours in and we will be happy to publish it! We discussed how drinking becomes part of our identify and that when we ditch it we have to work on our sober identity – and be out and proud! Sarah wants to be a voice of strength and positivity – not only for dependent drinkers but for “normal” drinkers – she wants to show people that you don't HAVE to participate We agreed that there is no need to reach rock bottom – the smart people step off the slippery slope before it gets too difficult Benefits of sobriety for Sarah include more mental space together with a feeling of extra brain power – we always say that Sobriety is a Superpower and it sounds as if she experienced that! She used her increased energy and motivation to focus on the important things in her life In early sobriety reading was Sarah's “safe space” but she found that some detective stories and women's fiction would trigger her This made her determined to create some balance by having a sober character in her book She has drawn on her own experiences to create this character who is thriving in her sobriety – rather than being miserable and relapsing as in many current books. Sarah wants to create a “safe list” of books to read in early sobriety -books that will inspire, rather than trigger us or give us FOMO – please send your recommendations to email@example.com and we can work on this list with Sarah. I asked her for some advice for anyone who is thinking of quitting… Just know that questioning your drinking is a start Seek out others who are on the same path Prepare for a shift in your social life but remember you are not alone in this Sarah's latest book is called “Bubbles in Space” – “Tropical Punch” – you can find the info about that and her other books on her website which is scjensen.com More Info Subscription membership – you can join up HERE. 20% ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP DISCOUNT CODE ANN052022 – valid during May 2022 To access our website, click HERE.

Afriforum is hiding behind free speech rights in order to justify their nostalgia for apartheid. In this episode of In The Ring With Eusebius McKaiser I explain why the legal debate is less important than the political and moral debates.I explain why we should be concerned about anyone who desires to cling on to symbols of hate, symbols of trampling on black people's dignity. There are issues here that the law cannot settle. I frame these for public discussion. The legal issues are less clear cut. In my view, Afriforum will probably lose the legal case but I do explain why, notwithstanding the legal brilliance and oratorical prowess of Adv Tembeka Ngcukaitobi, I think the legal issues are more complicated to make sense of than the political and moral dimensions.

The Friday Newsletter | Daily Gardener Community Historical Events 1904 Birth of Salvador Dalí, Spanish surrealist artist. Educated in Madrid, Salvador was a son of Catalonia, and he never lost his love for the beauty of his homeland. Early in his career, Salvador gravitated toward surrealism. By 1929, Salvador Dali was regarded as a leading figure in the art form. Like Sigmund Freud, Salvador Dalí used the landscape to metaphor the human mind. He once said about the coastline of his beloved Catalonia, I personify the living core of this landscape. Today, two museums are devoted to Salvador Dalí's work: the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, Spain, and the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. And in 2020, the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota, Florida, presented Salvador Dalí: Gardens of the Mind. The exhibit's centerpiece was Flordalí, a fantastically-colored series of flower lithographs from 1968. In Flordali, Salvador created imaginary surrealist enhancements to favorite blossoms. He made Dahlia unicorns, which feature a twisted horn in the middle of the bloom. Lilium musicum has vinyl records and sheet music for petals. Pisum sensuale is a sensory plant with fingers with painted nails and voluptuous lips. Panseé (Viola cogitans) is a self-portrait with pansies for the eyes and mouth. 1907 On this day, the American botanist Nathaniel Lord Britton was in Nantucket preparing for a lecture on plant protection. Nathaniel had brought along fifty colored lantern slides from the Van Brunt collection to use in his presentation. Nathaniel and his wife co-founded the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, New York. Nathaniel's time in Nantucket was brief - only for a day - but he wrote these observations in a letter about his trip. [On Nantucket] The mayflower is the most abundant of spring wildflowers, carpeting the moors on the south side of the island and lending a rich, spicy fragrance to the ocean breezes that sweep over these exposed tracts. It is in less danger from picking than from the surface fires, which are common occurrences in spring. The later blooming wildflowers suffer more or less at the hands of summer tourists, but I was glad to observe that the residents of Nantucket as a whole are keenly alive to the importance of preserving the natural beauties of the island and carefully guard the localities for many rare plants, especially the Scotch heather and the two European heaths (Erica cinerea and E. tetralix) which occur there. 1923 On this day, a schoolyard garden reported outside of Lochness gave the following update, As sheep are constantly breaking into the garden work has been stopped till the walls are rendered sheep-proof. This little entry was discovered by the modern-day owner of the property Katharine Stewart, and she shared it in her delightful month by month garden book called A Garden in the Hills (2006). Katharine reflected on the journal entry regarding the sheep and wrote, I know exactly what he meant. More than sixty years later, the sheep, the more agile variety, are still sometimes managing to leap over the wall, where the superimposed netting has given way. That can mean goodbye to all the summer lettuce and the winter greens, not to mention the precious flowering plants and all the work that went into producing them. The little school in the Scottish highlands closed in 1958. A few years later, Katharine and her husband, Sam, bought the property known as the croft at Abriachan near Loch Ness. There, Katharine began her writing. Reflecting on her first days in the garden at the croft, Katharine wrote, When we arrived, wild raspberries, willowherb, and sweet cicely had largely taken over. To bees and butterflies and to many kinds of birds, this was paradise! For us, it held all the thrill of uncharted territory. Every day a fresh discovery was made. Even now, I come on surprises each summer. Digging [has] revealed many other interesting things-worn-out toys, pieces of pottery, a pile of school slates from a dump against the top wall, evidently discarded when jotters came in-and, most interesting of all, several 'scrapers' dating from prehistoric times. Meanwhile, I often imagine my predecessors here looking on the same outline of hills, the same scoop of the burn in the hollow, listening to the same sounds of lark and owl, the bark of deer, and many more long gone-the howl of wolf, maybe the growl of bear. The heather would have been their late summer delight, making drinks of tea or ale, thatching for their roofs, and kindling for their fires. Sometimes envy them the simplicity of their lives, though the hardships must have been great. They didn't have a Christmas to celebrate, but they knew all about the winter solstice, and they must have been happy to see the bright berries on the holly, as we do today. Late in life, Katharine Stewart went on to become a teacher and then her town's postmistress. She died in 2013 and is survived by her daughter, Hilda. 1940 Birth of Margaret Visser, South African-born writer, and broadcaster who lives in Toronto, Paris, and southwest France. Margaret writes about history and anthropology and the mythology of everyday life. She once wrote, Salt is the only rock directly consumed by man. It corrodes but preserves, desiccates but is wrested from the water. It has fascinated man for thousands of years not only as a substance he prized and was willing to labour to obtain but also as a generator of poetic and of mythic meaning. The contradictions it embodies only intensify its power and its links with experience of the sacred.
