World Food Day next week Celebrate World Food Day on 16 October, an internationally-recognised anniversary meant to focus global attention on the plight of hungry people around the world. The earth produces enough food for everyone, yet an estimated one billion people suffer from hunger. Why? Some areas have a surplus of food while others have a shortage, and fully one third of all food produced is wasted. FoodBank SA is a non profit organisation working to create scaled and cost effective solutions to the hunger faced by 11 million South Africans, in part by linking community organisations that require food for hunger relief with suppliers of that food. FoodBank has four pillars of operation: FoodBank is given thousands of tonnes of

usable surplus food annually by supermarkets and food producers, and donates this food via a network of over 1,700 agencies; FoodBank uses its bulk buying power to purchase staple foods at greatly-reduced prices to nutritionally balance the food it rescues and can donate; FoodBank cultivates new food sources, mainly by nurturing small farmers and ensuring they have access to markets where they can sell their surplus produce; and FoodBank runs an outreach programme which encourages everyone working to relieve hunger relief to collaborate, in order to eliminate competition and foster synergies. FoodBank’s mantra is “Feeding Community Development”, linking hunger relief with empowerment so that people use a plate of food as a starting point to become self-de-

pendent. Please mark World Food Day by supporting your hungry neighbours in South Africa. On Tuesday 16 October, World Food Day, don’t buy lunch. Instead, pack your lunch at home and donate the money saved to FoodBank. To donate, go to the website www.foodbank.org.za and click on the Donate button. For just R1.70 FoodBank can provide a meal to someone who really needs it. That means you could feed 10 people for R17, the price of an inexpensive takeaway. And of course, R34 will give 20 hungry people a meal. That’s quite a thought to put on the table! Please don’t wait. Hunger doesn’t! For more information about World Food Day or FoodBank, contact keri@foodbank.org.za or telephone 082 444 4933.

Watch your cellphone! ACCORDING to a leading insurance company, theft of cellphones have increased significantly. Claims figures from Dial Direct show that cellphone theft is on the rise, with the number of mobile phones stolen from its customers rising by 23,5% between January and June this year. The spike in June is the highest since December 2011. The company’s senior executive, Bradley Du Chenne says insurance claims reports from customers give them some insight into the trends around theft and the modus operandi commonly used by thieves. “Based on our information it seems that the number of phones taken by force, as in a smash-and-grab or mugging incident, are becoming less frequent, while cellphones are increasingly being taken by opportunistic criminals under less aggressive circumstances, such as pickpocketing, off people’s desks at work, or from counters and tables in public places,” he says. According to Nielsen Southern Africa, some 29 million South Africans use a cellphone.

With this in mind, cellphone thieves don’t have to look very far or hard to find a target. Du Chenne says people shouldn’t make it any easier for criminals by keeping a close watch on their cellphones and making them less visible. “It seems like the order of the day is for people to study their cellphone screens while they’re out at shopping malls, in the street, in pubic restrooms, and at restaurants. While you want easy access to your phone, unnecessarily brandishing it about while you heedlessly check your Facebook feed or e-mails is quite simply an advertisement of what phone you’ve got to potential thieves. “ Cellphone users who walk and talk are also particularly vulnerable because thieves know that they are distracted. It is more sensible and safer to tuck it away in a bag or deep, secure pocket and only take it out if really necessary. If you do take it out, make sure you carefully tuck it away again when you’re done using it.” Dial Direct offers these tips to protect your mobile device:

) Conceal your cellphone when you are in a public place. ) Don’t leave your phone in clear view on a table or car dashboard. ) Do not leave cellphones unattended in your office or any other public place. ) Put your phone on silent or vibrate when you are in a public place and only answer it when it is safe to do so. ) When you do pull out your mobile handset in public, make sure you are in an environment you feel comfortable in. ) Keep a safe record of your phone’s PUK and serial numbers. ) If your phone is stolen, report it to your operator immediately and obtain a blacklisting reference number. If the phone is blacklisted, the thief will not be able to use your phone. ) If you use your phone for business purposes or to store sensitive information, take the necessary measures to back-up and protect the content, as well as wipe the device clean should it land in the wrong hands. ) Make sure you have adequate insurance.

Workshop to be held on cyber crime Cyber crime is always evolving to try and outwit and scam more unsuspecting people and businesses as awareness of their existing scams become wide spread. Every year cyber crime increases as more criminals are attracted to the growing number of internet users available to scam anonymity and better fraud prevention techniques linked to offline crime. Within the recent past many large organisations, banks, and small businesses have become victims of the scourge of document and cheque fraud, wire frauds and various types of business frauds. These frauds have resulted in the loss of

funds from tens of thousands to multi-million dollar losses. With continual digitization of financial records and transactions, fraud prevention and detection is set to be more challenging. More than usual, auditors need to be alert for situations, control weaknesses, inadequacies in record keeping, errors and unusual transactions or results which could be indicative of fraud, improper or unlawful expenditure, unauthorised operations, waste, inefficiency or lack of probity. With this in mind, we will hosting a workshop that will address alongside usual forensic audit issues, the challenges that have

emerged as a reason of digitization trends. Whether you are new to the world of trading online, have been lucky to avoid being scammed or are even aware of some scams operating on the internet. This one-day workshop will provide you with a clearer understanding on how to minimise your exposure to scams and strategies to protect your business on line. Cyber Crime and Online Fraud will be held on 20 November at the Sport Science Institute, Newlands, Cape Town. This workshop is facilitated by Dave Oswald, the managing director, Forensic Restitution.

Student gee terug ’n Stellenbosse meestersgraadstudent het haar luilekker vakansie onlangs afgestaan om leerlinge van haar alma mater te help om praktiese ondervinding op te doen in watertoetsing. Veronique Meyer, ’n oudleerling van Hoërskool Lückhoff in Idasvallei, is vanjaar besig met haar meestersgraad in mikrobiologie, met ’n fokus op die watergehalte van een van SuidAfrika se grootste riviere. Sy het onlangs van ’n skoolvriend verneem dat leerlinge van haar ou skool sukkel om die praktiese gedeelte van hul biologie-kurrikulum te voltooi. Hulle moet eksperimente op watermonsters van ’n plaaslike rivier te doen. “Ons is nou besig om die aard van besoedeling van die Krommerivier in te ondersoek en het Veronique genader om te help bepaal of die water moontlik met E.Coli-bakterieë besoedel is,” verduidelik Cheryl King, ’n onderwyseres by Lückhoff. Al het sy nog nooit klas gegee nie, het Veronique besluit om tog die kans te waag en navraag begin doen oor die moontlikheid om ’n praktiese sessie vir die leerlinge by die Universiteit Stellenbosch aan te bied. Aangesien dit vakansietyd was, het die departement Mikrobiologie haar toestemming

gegee om ’n praktiese sessie in een van die goed toegeruste voorgraadse laboratoriums aan te bied. . “Ek was aanvanklik op my senuwees, maar toe ek begin sketse trek en verduidelik hoe die prakties uitgevoer sou word, het dit natuurlik gekom. “Al die senuwees het weggeval,” vertel Veronique. Die leerlinge het botteltjies water uit die Krommerivier vir die eksperimente saamgebring. Veronique het die volgende dag die resultate na die skool geneem en die leerlinge verder gehelp om die data te verwerk. “Volgens die leerlinge se toetse kon ons sien daar is wel besoedeling in die Krommerivier.” Volgens King was dit vir die leerlinge ’n onvergeetlike ondervinding om ’n praktiese sessie in ’n goed toegeruste laboratorium te kon doen. Sy meen dit het hulle baie motiveer. “Daar is so baie kinders wat net verlore raak langs die pad. Dit het gevoel asof dit my plig is om, al is dit net een uit die groep, te motiveer om iets met hulle lewe te doen,” verduidelik Veronique oor haar ervaring. Sy sê die ervaring het so ’n vuur in haar aangesteek dat sy hoop om weer by ’n soortgelyke geleentheid betrokke te raak.

Help those in need Can you imagine a Christmas with no presents? This is the harsh reality of many of the children registered with The Santa Shoebox Project. Thanks to the community’s overwhelming generosity, this sad reality will no longer be the case, as 2 044 boxes have been pledged to date. However, with only 20 days left to the drop off boxes in Stellenbosch, 2 665 box pledges are still short. The local project organisers appeal to all individuals, schools, churches, clubs and companies to please join them in transforming the underprivileged kids of the community’s expectations of being empty-handed to box-full. Your participation in the project has a huge impact on these children’s lives. All of the items in each shoebox are truly treasured and carefully cared for. The process of pledging is as simple as logging on to the website and registering your email address. From there, you are able to select your very own child whose life you will certainly enrich. The Santa Shoebox Project is a non-profit organisation that has been working to collect gifts at Christmas time for thousands of underprivileged children since 2006.

Donors personally choose and fill gift boxes and then decorate and label each one with the recipient’s name. Visit the website at www.santashoebox.co.za for step by step instructions. The drop-off of completed boxes in Stellenbosch will take place from 23 to 25 October at the NG Kerk Welgelegen. For financial contributions, please contact Ally Knight on 072 679 7491 or 2 wcape@santashoebox.co.za.

Toets jou vir chroniese siektes Dit is veel goedkoper om gesond te bly as om ongeskik te raak vir werk of om gereeld die kliniek te moet besoek oor komplikasies weens voorkombare siektes soos hipertensie en diabetes. Die Wes-Kaapse Regering Gesondheid se veldtog van twee maande ter voorkoming van chroniese siektes onder pasiënte het pas afgeskop. Chroniese siektes soos hipertensie en diabetes verteenwoordig vyf van die top tien oorsake van sterftes in Suid-Afrika. Mense met chroniese siektes het aanvanklik geen simptome nie en dus soek baie pasiënte met chroniese siektes eers hulp wanneer kardiovaskulêre siekte, diabetes en chroniese respiratoriese siekte ’n akute stadium bereik.

Om siekte op hierdie laat stadium te behandel is nie net duur nie, maar ontneem mense van die voordele daaraan verbonde om hul toestand in ’n vroeë stadium te beheer of om verdere komplikasies geheel en al te voorkom. Die Wes-Kaapse bewusmakingsveldtog sal tot en met Desember duur en by alle gesondheidsfasiliteite aangebied word. Gemeenskappe word uitgenooi om hulle plaaslike sentrums vir ondersoeke te besoek. Die Kaapse Wynland-distrik gaan hom egter in die volgende twee maande op twee groot chroniese siektes, naamlik diabetes en hipertensie (hoë bloeddruk), toespits. Hier volg meer inligting rakende die siektes: ) Diabetes (tipe 2) is volkome voorkombaar as ’n persoon ’n gesonde leefstyl lei. Dit het egter baie komplikasies as dit nie behandel word

nie. Dit is een van die hoofoorsake van blindheid in Suid-Afrika. Dit het ook voetprobleme tot gevolg, wat soms tot amputasie kan lei. Gesonde leefstylingrypings vir mense met ’n hoë risiko van diabetes kan die voorkoms daarvan met 35% tot 58% verminder. ) Die meeste gevalle van hipertensie (hoë bloeddruk) kan voorkom word of makliker hanteer word as leefstylveranderinge vroeg in die diagnose gemaak word. Hipertensie, wat deur rook, stres, oormatige alkoholgebruik, vetsug, ’n ongesonde dieet en ’n gebrek aan oefening veroorsaak word, kan moontlik tot kardiovaskulêre (hart)probleme en beroerte lei. As jy reeds op medikasie is vir ’n chroniese siekte, onthou jy kan steeds ’n gesonde, vervulde lewe lei deur jou medikasie te neem en ’n goeie, gesonde leefstyl te handhaaf.

CALL A SPAYED A SPAYED: The Animal Welfare Society Stellenbosch (AWSS) is making good progress in its Kayamandi spaying project. Thus far almost half of the projected dogs and cats in the area have been spayed, and those involved are hoping to complete the project by the end of November. Seen here are some of the local children with their dogs at the base at Kuyasa in Watergang. The dogs are transported from the base to the AWSS, where local veterinary surgeons perform the operations. The project is led by Dr Annelize Roos and supported by Western Cape Premier Helen Zille.

Road-show to introduce new banknotes The month of October marks the start of provincial road shows by the South African Reserve Bank (SARB), aimed at educating and raising public awareness about the new banknotes, which come into circulation before the end of the year. The communication campaign around the forthcoming new South African banknote series, depicting

and honouring former President Nelson Mandela, was launched in early September by Reserve Bank Governor, Gill Marcus. Retail malls, transport hubs and pension pay points in urban and rural areas of the country’s nine provinces are some of the touch-points that have been earmarked for the public outreach programme. “We want to reach every South African through this communication

On Sunday and Monday the South African Reserve Bank introduced Stellenbosch residents to the new banknotes and they paid a visit to the Bergzicht taxi rank on Monday.

campaign. The SARB road show will be in the Western Cape region from 1 October to 16 October 2012 to familiarise communities with the new banknotes prior to circulation,” says Hlengani Mathebula, Head: Group Strategy and Communications, South African Reserve Bank. The road show was in Stellenbosch on Sunday and Monday where they stopped at the Eikestad Mall as well as Bergzicht Taxi Rank. The road shows included demonstrations with the new banknotes; and informative material about the new banknotes. “It is our responsibility as the Reserve Bank to protect the credibility of the South African currency. This can only be done by making sure that the public know their money and its distinct features really well,” says Mathebula. Information about the new banknotes is also available across different communication platforms, such as radio, television, billboards, banners, the SARB website, print and online media, including social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and mobile device sites.

Inskrywings vir Die Burger-fietstoer oop Inskrywings vir die Wes-Kaap se tweede grootste fietsresies, Die Burger-fietstoer, open Maandag 8 Oktober om 13:00. Die Burger-fietstoer vind Sondag 2 Desember plaas en die begin- en eindpunt is weereens by die Hoërskool Stellenbosch. Fietsryers kan kies uit twee afstande: ’n vinnige 92 km-roete vir ervare fietsryers, en ’n korter 44 km-roete wat ideale oefening vir onervare fietsryers is. Die 92 km-roete is ook die laaste keuringswedren vir die 2013 Cape Argus Pick n Payfietstoer, wat op Sondag 10 Maart plaasvind. Hoe om in te skryf Besoek www.dieburgerfietstoer.co.za en volg die maklike aanwysings om aanlyn in te skryf. Inskrywings is tot 5 500 (92 km) en 1 000 (44 km) vir die verskillende roetes beperk. Roete beskrywings

Die vinnige 92km-roete: Fietsryers sal hul eerste klim van die dag teen die historiese Ou Helshoogtepas teëkom, vanwaar hulle deur Pniel in die rigting van Paarl ry. Wanneer hulle die R101 bereik, draai fietsryers regs en hou aan met Cecelia en Arboretum Rylane na die R301 rigting Wellington. Ná die afdraai links op die R44, sal ryers hul laaste heuwels van die dag klim voor hulle na die eindpunt in Stellenbosch terugkeer. Die korter 44km-roete: Fietsryers volg die 92 km-roete teen die Ou Helshoogtepas uit en ry dan deur Pniel en afwaarts met die R45. Die twee roetes skei by die R45 Simondiumpad. Die 44 km-roete draai links na die R44. Die twee roetes sluit weer op die R44 bymekaar aan, sowat 15 km voor die eindpunt in Stellenbosch.

SHOW JUMPING CHAMPS HOP TO IT: The WP Junior Show Jumping Championships will be held on 20 and 21 October at Stellenbosch District Riding Club, situated just off the R44, next to Stellenbosch Airfield. The club has rallied many sponsors, including Lexus Helderberg as one of the main sponsors, and the event will feature a display of cars that will be available for test drives. There will also be lots of horse-shop stalls, as well as ample catering. The competition will run between 08:00 and 17:00 each day.

PRG hockey plan annual golf day A workshop on eyeware and visual skills was recently held for the members of Maties Cricket Club. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Maties cricketers get to enjoy a little eye candy A recent workshop held by the Centre for Human Performance Sciences (CHPS) at Stellenbosch University was a sight for sore eyes to the members of Maties Cricket Club. During the workshop the cricketers were given the opportunity to sample specialised Nike Vision cricket eyeware, while also being exposed to visual skills training. Grant van Velden, sports vision specialist at the CHPS, facilitated the workshop and opened proceedings with a presentation highlighting the importance of both sports vision training and eye protection on the field of play. “The idea for this workshop came largely as a result of Mark Boucher’s recent eye injury suffered on South Africa’s cricket tour of England,” he says. “While this was an unfortunate and relatively freakish incident, we believe it served to highlight the importance of protecting one’s eyes while on the field. As a result, we decided to create this platform in partnership with Nike Vision and Mellins I-Style for Maties cricketers to be educated around the issue.” After the opening presentation, the Maties cricketers took part in various visual skills training drills under the watchful eye of Van Velden, while at the same time sampling Nike Vision eyeware during these activities. An optometrist working at the Mellins branch in the Neelsie student centre was on hand to provide input to the interested cricketers.

“All athletes recognise the importance of physical and mental conditioning, but there are still many who do not focus on actual visual training despite the fact that the visual component plays a critical part in their performance,” says Van Velden. “Many athletes do not even realise that the visual system can be trained just like we train our bodies in the gym, and this is an important message that we tried to convey during this workshop.” According to Van Velden, another important aspect relates to the mode of training: “We believe that it is important to conduct visual skills training in a manner that closely resembles actual match situations, since this serves to create a realistic scenario in which the athletes are likely to find themselves on the field of play. “As a result, the drills we utilised largely incorporated cricket-specific elements such as fielding a ball and returning it over the stumps – a lot of which was coupled with a decision-making component.” As far as the immediate future is concerned, Van Velden says the Centre for Human Performance Sciences will certainly investigate the possibility of presenting similar workshops in the future, including for sport codes other than cricket. “We will be discussing the options with our partners for this project, namely Nike Vision and Mellins I-Style, and we are certainly very positive about the potential that this area holds.”

The Paul Roos Gymnasium hockey committee has started a new fundraising initiative, in the form of an annual golf day, to benefit their players. The golf day is set to happen at Bellville Golf Course today (Tuesday). The aim is to raise funds to help the school continue nurturing hockey players with talent, elevate already high standards, and ultimately broaden hockey development at Paul Roos Gymnasium.
