Sugar The proposed tax on sugary drinks is likely to be introduced in April 2018, Treasury deputy director general Ismail Momoniat announced in parliament. However, there is still disagreement on the exact level of tax, with businesses wanting a revised tax every three years, while Treasury wants to implement its current proposal of approximately 10% on a soft drink can, and increase this over time, reports BusinessDay. The tax was first propositioned in former finance minister Pravin Gordhan’s 2016 budget speech, with government proposing that these drinks be taxed at a rate of 2.29 cents per gram of sugar, with the idea

that drinks with large amounts of added sugar will be taxed more. Drinks which contain natural sugars – like unsweetened milk and 100% fruit juice – would not be taxed, while sugar-sweetened drinks where the sugar content is not disclosed on the packaging would be taxed at a fixed sugar level of 50 grams per 330 ml. The proposal was later reportedly changed to look at both intrinsic and added sugars when calculating the tax. Treasury had also proposed a new threshold that would make the first 4g of sugar per 100ml beverage exempt from the sugar tax.

Fears of job losses Momoniat said the problems facing the sugar industry pre-existed the introduction of the health promotion levy, with ANC MP Derek Hanekom adding that the levy proposal might act as a welcome catalyst to tackle these problems. However, businesses and unions say that they are still concerned about the effect of the new tax on jobs in the sector. “This has been one of the most extensive public consultations on a bill,” said Cosatu’s Matthew Parks. “We don’t want to collapse government’s health. Not a single Cosatu member does not have a family with diabetes, cancer and

so on. But we are talking of unemployment of 36% to 38%. We are concerned with job losses.”

Noodlottige draai! Verskeie verbeterings is in Nigel aangebring onder andere spoedhobbels waar nodig, asook die verf van paaie en herstel van talle padtekens, wat verblydend is. Die eienaar van 71 Ferrybridge Laan, Nigel poog egter tevergeefs vir die afgelope 5 jaar om die munisipaliteit te oortuig om ‘n spoedhobbel by die gevaarlike draai wat vanaf Johan van der Merwe Rylaan in Ferrybridge uitloop te beveilig. Talle ongelukke het die afgelope 5 jaar om hierdie draai plaasgevind, waarvan sommige wel aangemeld was en ander nie, party ernstig en ander minder ernstig. Versekeringsmaatskappye bly opdok en dan is daar wel die gevalle van oortreders wat geen dekking het nie, waarvoor die huiseienaar die volle aanspreeklikheid moet aanvaar.

Volgens die munisipaliteit is hul bereid om die spoedhobbel aan te bring, nadat ‘n petisie saamgestel is, dan selfs is daar nog steeds kostes wat deur die aansoeker vereffen moet word. Tot dusver is daar geen lewens geeis met enige van die vorige ongelukstonele nie, maar nou met die komende Desember feesmaand is hierdie ‘n kommerwekkende situasie. Die vraag is sal die munisipaliteit eers wakker skrik en reageer as daar ‘n noodlottige ongeluk plaasvind en ‘n lewe dalk geeis word. Daar is talle ander spoedhobbels op verskeie gevaar paaie geplaas, wat sal die rede wees dat hierdie draai dit nie regverdig nie.

How do fireworks affect you animals? Lighting up the night sky with a magnificent display of pyrotechnics is a popular and fun way to usher in a new year, but while it may be enjoyable for us, it is hellish for our four-legged companions. Fireworks, along with thunderstorms and owners who have gone away, are the main causes of lost or stray animals over the holidays. Several hundred animals are picked up by the SPCA over the festive season. The group again urges people to think of pet safety. It appeared as if people show a complete disregard for animals with their New Year’s celebrations. Microchip Owners can do a microchip implanted between the shoulder blades of the animal, and is permanent. Should your pet go missing report this to Nigel or Heidelberg SPCA. There are various ways to prepare your pet for thunderstorms or fireworks: Make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise earlier in the day. Try a light jog or brisk walk, play a game of Frisbee or fetch to tire it out. Jogging with cats is not recommended. Keep pets indoors when thunderstorms or fireworks are expected, preferably with human companionship. Close all windows, curtains and doors where possible to block out flashing lights and sounds. Provide toys, treats and other distractions to keep pets occupied. A frozen treat like a chicken stock popsicle

is advised. Try to stay at home with your pet if fireworks or thunderstorms are expected. Make sure your pet is microchipped or appropriately tagged for easy identifi-cation if it gets lost. Speak to your pet’s vet about supplements and medication available for managing anxiety caused by loud noises. Music The best way to keep an anxious or scared pet calm, is to turn on music or the television to muffle the sounds of thunder or fireworks. Nothing too loud – classical music is great. It is most effective when you first play the music well before the thunderstorm or fireworks start, at a time the animal is already peaceful and relaxed. It will begin to associate the music with being calm and content. Then play the music a couple of hours before the storm or fireworks start and continue to play through bedtime. Don’t fuss over or punish your pet if it becomes agitated with the sounds, doing so only makes the behaviour worse. Act as if all is normal and ignore the fearful behaviour, unless it is hazardous to your pet. Provide a secure place, preferably indoors, so your pet can’t escape your property if startled by loud noises. Allow your pet to hide in a “safe place” if it chooses. This might be a blanket-lined cupboard or pet cave. When scared of sounds the location of which they cannot pinpoint, pets often prefer small, enclosed areas. If your pet runs to hide in a corner or under the bed, don’t try to coax it out; let it be where it feels safe. Ensure that you are calm and stress-free so that your pet’s fear doesn’t mirror your fear. Once you ride out the first thunderstorm or fireworks display, you will get better at managing your pet’s fear and anxiety. Like they say we cannot prevent thunderstorms, but we can prevent the noise created by fireworks. Remember, there is always the option of no or low-noise fireworks.

FESTIVE MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE MAYOR Another protracted year has swiftly passed leaving us overwhelmed with its burdens, challenges achievements and tribulations. 2017 marks the first year of the current administration and naturally teething problems have been present. However, we must appreciate the efforts and dedicated team of the entire city towards the transition. The year has seen a number of major initiatives implemented, which seek to strengthen service delivery and build from the gains and achievements of the previous administration. The City of Ekurhuleni continues to strengthen its identity as a synergised and integrated city, getting rid of the “nine towns” stigma. Through the Siyaqhuba rapid service delivery programme, we have managed to

harness relations with our communities. It is with humble appreciation that the programme has become synonymous with service delivery. The commitment demonstrated by our departments indicates that Siyaqhuba can only grow from strength to strength. Our joint efforts in all levels of the city will ensure this outcome. I wish to thank each and every one of you for making the City of Ekurhuleni function as effectively as possible. Our external corporate image has improved and we maintain standards of fiscal prudence. As we usher into the festive season, I urge everyone to rest, indulge and more importantly spend time with family. During the year we are all embroiled in the system of governance; at times this requires immense sacrifice which affects the most important institution, the family.

Happy Holidays Warmest thoughts and best wishes for a wonderful holiday and a prosperous 2018.

New state of emergency laws The presidency is currently in the process of drafting new regulations to deal with a potential state of emergency in the country. According to a copy of the proposed laws seen by Rapport, the regulations – which were first drafted in 2016 – had recently been sent to the SA National Defence Force for urgent input. The regulations specifically deal with the measures that should be followed should the president decide to declare a state of emergency – including the authority to cut communication channels (including a national internet shutdown) as well as the authority to arrest or detain any person to maintain peace and order within the country. Speaking to the Rapport, Jacob van Garderen, national director of Lawyers for Human Rights, said that the proposed regulations were similar to those seen under the 1980s apartheid government –

especially because of the far-reaching powers they would give to security personnel within the country. He said that the reasons for drafting the regulations were also troubling given the context of the Marikana incident as well as past xenophobic attacks in the country. Human Rights Commissioner, André Gaum, said that the regulations would have to be redrafted as they currently infringed on a number of Constitutional rights in their current form. The Constitution currently states that the decision to announce a state of emergency can be overturned by the High Court, and can not last longer than three months. Emergency laws is when a government or other authority declares a state of emergency in an area, it introduces special measures such as increased powers for the police or army, usually because of civil disorder or because of a natural disaster such as an earthquake.

Verdere stygings Gaan jy meer vir brandstof in Desember betaal? Die pryse van brandstof kan na verwagting in Desember skerp styg weens die verdere styging in die ruolieprys en die verswakking in die wisselkoers. Volgens die jongste inligting van die Departement van Energie het die prys van petrol 93 (ULP & LRP) op Woensdag, 6 Desember met 71,9c per liter en die prys van diesel met ‘n 0,005% swaelinhoud met 61,1c per liter verhoog. Vakansiegangers sal hul huiswerk deeglik moet doen vir hierdie Desember se wegbreek, aangesien die brandstofprys ‘n groot inpak op meeste beurse gaan hê. Die AA het verwag dat petrol met 74c per liter sal styg, diesel met 63c per liter en paraffien met tot 75c per liter. Volgens die AA kan die prentjie nog verder vererger voor die einde van die maand. Ons kan nie die tekens ignoreer dat SuidAfrika moontlik voor Desember verdere afgraderings in die gesig staar nie.” Volgens die AA kan kommer oor die regering se f iskale dissipline die rand

verder negatief beïnvloed en kan dit saam met die stygings in internasionale oliepryse verdere brandstofprys verhogings vir die res van 2017 en selfs tot vroeg in 2018 tot gevolg hê. Die prys van petrol het begin November met 4c per liter gestyg, diesel (met ‘n swaelinhoud van 0.05%) met 23c per liter en diesel (met ‘n swaelinhoud van 0.005%) met 27c per liter. In Oktober het 93-oktaan-petrol met 25c per liter gestyg, terwyl die prys van 95oktaan-petrol met 29c per liter gestyg het. Die prys van albei grade diesel het met 42c per liter gestyg. Volgens internasionale bronne het die gemiddelde daaglikse Brent ru-olieprys hierdie maand tot sy hoogste vlak sedert Junie 2015 van $64,27 per vat gestyg. Weens die styging in die ru-olieprys kan die gemiddelde internasionale prys van petrol moontlik met 45,7c per liter styg en die prys van diesel moontlik met 34,3c per liter in die dieselprys. Brandstofprys verhogings is onvoorspelbaar lesers word vermaan om voorsorg te tref en die ergste te verwag.

Neem jou kind se van selfoonverslawing. Toets jouself behoeftes, ontwikkelingsvlak en persoonlikheid in ag voordat jy vir hom ‘n selfoon sommer ook.

Slimfone verslawend Presies hóé verslawend is slimfone? Vir baie het slimfone ‘n kommunikasienaelstring geword. Ongelukkig het slimfone ‘n hoogs verslawende faset. Al ‘n paar tieners dopgehou wat bymekaar sit, maar doof vir mekaar, sit en musiek luister, elkeen met ‘n eie slimfoon in die hand en eie oorfone in die oor? En boonop nog besig om te Facebook of te SMS dat jy net die duime sien beweeg? Slimfoonverslawing is ‘n wêreldwye neiging. Een uit elke drie volwassenes en 60% tieners het erken hulle is erg verslaaf aan hul fone. Meer as die helfte van volwassenes (51%) en 65% van tieners het erken hulle gebruik hul slimfoon terwyl hulle sosialiseer met ander, met byna ‘n kwart van die volwassenes (23%) en ‘n derde van die tieners (34%) wat hul slimfone tydens etes gebruik.

PAGE 11 dalk heeltemal oorboord sal gaan met ‘n slimfoon. Onthou, die finale besluit oor wat jou kind kry, berus by jou. Dis heeltemal onnodig om vir ‘n jong kind ‘n slimfoon te koop. Kry kinders betrokke by ‘n gesprek deur vrae te vra en hul aandag af te trek van hul fone. Kort voor lank mis niemand meer hul selfone nie. Deur selfone in gesinstyd en aan etenstafel te verbied, skep jy vir jou kind sekuriteit, want jy help hom om te leer van balans tussen sy sosiale behoeftes, sy gesin en vriende en die nodigheid van selfdissipline. Nellie voel baie sterk daaroor dat kinders nie alles moet kry wat hulle begeer nie, en se dis noodsaaklik dat ouers sterk leiding neem in die vestiging van kinders se waardes.

2018 gly of gedy Vetsug onder kinders het kenners wêreldwyd bekommerd, maar Suid Afrika word as die land beskou waar dit die vinnigste toeneem. Hoeveel ure van die dag spandeer die meeste kinders tyd voor die TV en/of rekenaar, moenie die selfoon uitsluit nie. Doen ouers regtig moeite om hulle kinders te inspireer om te beweeg en aktief te wees. Dan is daar natuurlik die “mediese tydbom” en sommige medici beweer ons kweek ’n “siek generasie, omrede kinders so jonk as twaalf jaar medikasie vir leefstylsiektes soos diabetes en hoë bloeddruk gebruik. Oor die talle redes kan lank en breedvoerig uitgewei word. Kinders speel nie meer nie. Veiligheidsoorwegings veroorsaak dat hulle nie meer vryelik op fietse kan kerjakker en skool toe stap nie. Selfone, TV en rekenaars is hul gunstelingmaniere van ontspan (die sogenaamde “skermgenerasie”). Oorwerkte ouers misluk boonop om kinders gesonde oefen- en eetgewoontes te leer. En die gebrek aan balans in ons eie lewe spoel oor na ons kinders. Die oplossing is veelvlakkig: Skole, ouers en die regering moet hande vat. Ouers se rol Jong kinders tot en met graad 9 moet minstens ’n uur per dag speel en hardloop. ’n Liefde moet by hulle gekweek word vir skop, rol, en vang. Sportwetenskaplikes vertel dat f isieke ontwikkeling ’n regstreekse invloed op hoe kinders op skool vorder het. Dis noodsaaklik vir dinge soos liggaams-

koördinasie, hand- oog- en voet-oogkoördinasie, ritme, tydsberekening, motoriese vaardighede, balans en spiertonus. Jou kind kan rekenaarspeletjies speel én oefen. Maar soos met alles in die lewe, is balans belangrik en daarvoor moet die ouer sorg. Kinders funksioneer die beste binne reëls en daar moet grense gestel word. Skole se rol Die hoof se ingesteldheid bepaal hoeveel aandag L.O. kry. Boonop is daar ’n behoefte aan goed opgeleide onderwysers in kinder kinetika. En by minder bevoorregte skole ook aan geriewe. Soms maak skole ‘n groot ophef van kinders met sporttalent want húlle kry positiewe erkenning. Die outjie wat nie in sport uitblink nie, voel later hy is net goed genoeg om voor die TV te sit. Maar sport is nié net vir eerstespan-spelers nie.” Volgens kenners moet die positiewe uitwerking van sport op jou liggaam meer beklemtoon word en word daar nie genoeg klem gelê op sport en oefening vir goeie gesondheid, genot en sosiale interaksie nie. Kinders wat nie in sport presteer nie, wat die meerderheid is, moet ook betrokke raak by speel en oefen. Snoepwinkels en kafkos Snoepwinkels by skole is ook ’n groot probleem. Dis noodsaaklik om jou bloedsuikervlakke stabiel te hou, wat ’n kind se konsentrasie verbeter en hiperaktiwiteit kan verminder. BEWEEG SÁÁM MET JOU KINDERS

Jou voorbeeld is belangrik. Staan dus self van die rusbank af op en moedig jou kinders aan om saam met jou te beweeg.
