A number  of  reasons  to  celebrate WITH

MANY people either look forward to the festive period and begin their countdown to Christmas in October, while others are left running for the hills to avoid  the  ‘silliness’  that  comes  with  the  season. As we get ready to wind down and take a breather, we decided to reflect on some of the wonderful reasons  to  celebrate  the  year  that  was.

Blind students join forces to launch book

Community mourns former SAPS member FEVER REPORTER

NTANDOYENKOSI DLAMINI >>ntandoyenkosi.dlamini@media24.com

T

HE University of KwaZulu-Natal and Shuter and Shooter Publishers (Pty) Ltd launched a book titled Ngamehlo Osiba last Friday at the uMsunduzi Museum. The book, edited by Professor Nakanjani Sibiya, is an anthology of short autobiographies contributed by 10 visually challenged students from all over South Africa who share their challenges and how they overcame them. Gauteng’s Lindiwe Manana, who lost her sight on the eve of her wedding, also contributed to the book. Professor Sibiya said being with the university for years, he was always troubled by the students who can’t see, and decided to ask them to write about their lives and daily experiences. “Imagine your heart leaps with joy as you finalise preparations for your wedding on the forthcoming weekend. Then a severe headache attacks you while on the way to collect your wedding gown; your vision is completely lost by the time the big day arrives. Do you resort to suicide?”asked Sibiya. “A car in which you are travelling is involved in a horrible accident, you sustain some injuries and complain about persistent headaches after you

have been discharged from hospital. Sadly, you lose your sight a short while thereafter. How do you deal with the sudden change?” The professor also asked: “You are a few weeks away from completing your degree when a throbbing headache derails your dreams and renders since you were a toddler. Your father continually refuses to seek medical advice and insists that some traditional ritual will suffice. Eventually, you will suffer permanent eyesight loss. How do you survive the tragedy?”

He highlighted that these are but some of the situations encountered by contributors to this anthology, all of whom are visually challenged — some from birth and others later in life. He emphasised that a common feature in their life stories is the tenacity that permeates their quest to overcome challenges attendant to visual impairment. “Shunning self-pity, they relate heart-rending experiences that impart many eye-opening life lessons. It’s great when these stories are told

by them and not us,” said Sibiya. The contributors are currently pursuing postgraduate academic qualifications at UKZN. The event also highlighted that anything is possible for people living with disabilities, and that nobody should be discriminated against. Shuter and Shooter Publishers’ CEO, Primi Chetty, said this is the first launch of many. “We are incredibly proud to be associated with these writers and for allowing us to be the custodian of their thoughts,” said Chetty.

Bursary win is a ‘saviour’ NTANDOYENKOSI DLAMINI >>ntandoyenkosi.dlamini@media24.com

EATHER Secondary’s Grade 12 pupil, Ashiel Maharaj, was the lucky recipient of the 13th annual IT Certification Academy (ITCA) bursary draw that was held recently. According to Shanice Basdeo, ITCA’s national operations co-ordinator, ITCA is an institution that provides the highest standard with international certifications and national qualifications to students and working professionals. “We started our bursary draws in 2006 and the one held this year was our 13th annual bursary draw. It was started in an effort to provide financial aid to students who have a passion for IT but not the means to pursue tertiary studies,” said Basdeo. Basdeo explained how pupils go about applying for the bursary, saying that applicants were required to submit either an application form or a 30-second video telling ITCA why they deserve to win the bursary. All applicants were then invited to the live bursary draw, which was on October 5, where pupils competed against each other and faced elimination rounds in order to win. Lucky to receive the bursary, valued at R81 900, to study with ITCA Pietermaritzburg, Ashiel said he was extremely elated. “I was over the moon because I knew it was a saviour to my mother since tertiary studies are very financially straining,” said Ashiel. He said he had applied for a computer science course at the university of South Africa “because I have a passion when it comes to computers and my second option was forensic science because I enjoy puzzles and love challenging my mind with different scenarios”. Now that the worry for next years’ fees is a thing of the past, Ashiel’s mother, Nirasha, said: “I am extremely grateful to ITCA for PAWN - BUY - SELL providing my son “Lending a helping hand since 1999” with an opportunity at a bright and prosperous future.

Fireworks supplier promotes safety

Safety first when handling sparklers and fireworks

I

NDIAN Fireworks is proud to have been a sponsor at the Msunduzi Diwali Festival for the sixth year now. We are also proud to announce that we will be trading from two stores this year for your convenience, one being at the Blind and Deaf hall in Olympia way and another in Allandale Drive at best drive centre opposite Hollywood. We hope to build a lasting relationship with the Blind and Deaf Society and contribute towards the society for many more years to come. We are also humbled and thankful for the response we have received from all our local primary schools and for allowing us to be the first fireworks dealer to conduct a safety campaign, in which we educate pupils on the use of fireworks and safety. We started this campaign last year and will be conducting it every year in the future. We are not just an ordinary fireworks dealer, but we sincerely have the community at heart. The safety of our children and animals form part of our motto and ethos of our company, therefore we also started giving out free calmettes to your animals at our store since last year. We have already begun of our campaign for this year with our first school being Spring Haven Primary, where we handed them an appreciation certificate and educated pupils about safety when using fire-

works. We have conducted this safety drive in more than 10 schools. We would like to thank TPA Primary School, Spring Haven, Northdale Primary, Regina Primary, Deçcan Road Primary, Allandale Primary, Orient Heights Primary, Union Park Primary, Ridgeview Primary and

Merry Land Pre-school for joining us in the Indian Fireworks safety drive, and allowing us to help ensure that children and adults are educated about the dangers and use of fireworks during the seasons and on how to keep each other and our pets safe. — Supplied.

SPARKLERS and fireworks injuries are common during the festival of Deepavali, Halloween, Guy Fawkes, Christmas and New Year’s Eve when traditionally sparklers and fireworks form a part of the celebrations. Unfortunately, their beauty and intrigue comes with a great potential to inflict damage to our eyes. Children aged 15 and under account for up to 50% of the total injuries caused by fireworks and sparklers. In the most severe cases, sparklers and fireworks can cause chemical and thermal burns to the eye, with these injuries possibly causing permanent damage and vision loss. SO, WHEN HANDLING SPARKLERS AND FIREWORKS, THE FOLLOWING IS RECOMMENDED: F – Focus on what you are

doing when handling fireworks. Don’t be distracted. A – Aim fireworks away from people and flammable materials. C – Children should not handle or light fireworks. E – Eye protection is important while handling fireworks and using sparklers. D – “Dud” or failed fireworks are extremely volatile. Discard them safely, immediately! If an eye injury from fireworks occurs, it is a medical emergency. Rinse the eye continually with tap water and seek medical attention immediately at an urgent care or emergency facility. The Pietermaritzburg Eye Hospital has an ophthalmologist on emergency call 24/7 if your healthcare professional needs support. You can call 033 812 2300. — Supplied.

ADDSWORTH Grade 4 pupil Kelly Abrahamse (10) took part in the KwaZulu-Natal Top Model competition on October 5 in Durban where she was selected as a Miss Teen Finalist for KZN Top Model SA 2019. According to Kelly’s mother, Jolene Abrahamse, Kelly was beaming from ear to ear when she received the news. “I saw she realised all her sacrifices and hard work got her closer to reaching her goals. Her smile — amazing. That is a reward on its own,” said Abrahamse, who is not only Kelly’s mother but also the founder and owner of Reflections Modelling Agency. “I entered a number of my models into the KZN Top Model search and four of them have gone through to the finals. We need local support for these Pietermaritzburg models to achieve their dreams,” said Abrahamse. Looking back at her daughter’s journey, Abrahamse said Kelly has always wanted to enter competitions, adding that she was hesitant to allow her to do so because she felt Kelly was just not ready. “She needed extensive grooming — loads of hard work, self-belief and some refinement. I finally gave in and decided it was time for her to try it out, not to win, but have fun and have her first experience,” said Abrahamse. She emphasised that as both Kelly’s mother and modelling teacher she was ecstatic and proud, adding: “It’s powerful when an individual realises they are capable of so much more and they believe in themselves. I know she can do any thing she applies her mind to.” Model The work that the models need to put in for the fiKelly Abrahamse nals is extensive as they have to find sponsors and was selected as a Miss raise funds for the KZN Top Models charity.

From the beginning of this month, the Department of Transport, with its entities, have been creating awareness on transport services in aviation, maritime, public transport and roads. In the same spirit, we asked some of our local residents about some of the modes of transport they have never used and why. This is what they had to say:

‘What mode of transport have you never used and why?’ NICK MARLIN

Nick Marlin said he has used every mode of transport there is: “From bicycles, aeroplanes to ships, I have experienced it all. I went to a boarding school, that’s where I received my taxi experience, so I have used most of the modes of transport made available to us.”

HUEMISHKA GOVENDER

Huemishka Govender: “I have riden mostly everything; I have flown before, been on a taxi and experienced a bit of sea travel. I have never been on a train before but I will be getting my first experience this December. My father has organised a train trip from ‘Maritzburg to Durban.”

LONDEKA DLAMINI

Londeka Dlamini: “I am a taxi hopper of note so that is out of the question. Yes, I have been on a train but, unfortunately, I haven’t been on an aeroplane, ship or boat before and that’s because of my financial situation.”

EDDY KHUNA

Eddy Khuna: “The work I do involves a lot of travel because my employer has clients all over the country. I have flown, used taxis and been on the train. I have never been on a ship or boat before and I don’t think I will ever get on one. I find sea travelling very scary so I am good.

Lincoln Meade meeting L

INCOLN Meade residents took to the streets on Saturday, October 19 to distribute pamphlets for the community meeting to be held on November 9. The purpose of the meeting is to establish the Lincoln Meade resident and ratepayer association. At the meeting residents will get to nominate fellow residents to a resident and ratepayer association committee and thereafter office bearers will be elected. There is a movement to establish and revive resident and ratepayer associations in Msunduzi and to set up a resident and ratepayer association umbrella body that would comprise all resident and ratepayer associations in Msunduzi. Residents in Msunduzi are mobilising to take back their residences so that they are safer and cleaner, and seek to work with their local ward councillors. Residents are frustrated by the Msunduzi council and poor service delivery and the formation of a resident and ratepayer association umbrella body will hold those in power

Co-ordinator of the resident and ratepayer association umbrella body, Anthony Waldhausen, said: “The residents are taking back their city and will establish resident and ratepayer associations in their respective areas one area at a time. The umbrella body will be non-political, accountable and transparent, united in our diversity, be an advocacy, consultative and a pressure group that provides solutions and root out corruption in all spheres of society. It will also provide capacity building support to resident and ratepayer association committees and structures.” Lincoln Meade resident are encouraged to attend the community meeting on November 9 at 2 pm on the field across the Lincoln Meade store on Grimpthorpe Avenue.

ENTERTAINMENT

Night of music, praise and worship NTANDOYENKOSI DLAMINI >>ntandoyenkosi.dlamini@media24.com

N

ON-PROFIT organisation We­Serv Christian Lyric Theatre and Shisanyama has promised a night of praise, worship and good vibes at the Dominican House Chapel in Scottsville on Friday, October 25. According to Delana Rawlins, cofounder of WeServ, the organisation is not a church but more of a Christian chill spot with live entertainment. “I felt the need to create a space for artists because, being an artist myself, I know what is needed. “Most of us sing in church but that’s as far as it goes. What can we as Christians do for entertainment? Is there a place where we can have fun, be entertained and still worship our Lord all at the same time?” asked Rawlins. She added that she realised, through her Christian journey, that there are a lot of broken people who want help but feel too judged and condemned in a full gospel church. Also, she said she wanted to create a space where people would enjoy the presence of God without feeling pressured or forced to live in a Christian way. The main artist for the event will be a Durban group called Grace Enough. Doors open at 5 pm and the show starts at 7 pm. Entrance is R20 for adults and is free for children under

Piano lovers are in for a musical treat FEVER REPORTER LOVERS of classic music and fans of the piano are promised a delightful programme of music for four hands on one piano with Mark Nixon and Christopher Duigan at the Tatham Art Gallery on November 3.

Mark Nixon is a graduate of the Amsterdam Conservatory, the Guild-

hall School of Music and Drama in London, the University of Cape Town, and UNISA. From 2000 to 2002 he was the Anthony Saltmarsh Junior Fellow at the Royal College of Music.

the age of 10. “Entertainment includes singing, dancing, rapping, poetry and much more. Everything we do is unto the glory of God. We believe, through our vision, society will be reshaped and even changed. “Our artists will have an opportunity to be mentored, to network and to socialise with other artists,”said Rawlins, adding that artists who are interested in getting a platform to showcase and work on their talent can contact her or anybody on the WeServ team. “Interested artists will get the op-

portunity to network and be mentored by other artists. They have an opportunity to master their craft by having a stage with an audience to watch them. “For the more experienced musicians, they have the opportunity to mentor junior musicians and to market their businesses through scouting for talent and then working with those they have chosen,” said Rawlins.

OPINION

October 23, 2019

The broad influence of BC IAN MACQUEEN THIS year marks the 42nd anniversary of Black Wednesday, when the apartheid regime banned 18 civic organisations in an attack on media freedom and civil society. Many of the organisations were aligned to the Black Consciousness Movement. The high number of organisations outlawed by the nationalist government speaks to the breadth of impact Black Consciousness (BC) had on SA. South Africans often adopt simplistic historical narratives. For example, the historical role of BC is seen primarily in its renewed challenge to the apartheid state in inspiring the Soweto Uprising of June 16, 1976. A fuller appreciation of its history and impact transcends this narrow focus. The craft of historians has been summed up in the so-called five Cs of historical thinking: context, complexity, contingency, causality and change over time. Using this principle, I have studied South African civil society in the late 1960s and 1970s. While this time was seen as a lull in the opposition to apartheid, closer examination emphasises the importance of ideas, debates and movements in the peri-

od. My book Black Consciousness and Progressive Movements under Apartheid, shows how activists drew on global movements of social change in their responses to the oppression of apartheid. To understand BC and its wider impacts historically, we need to understand this broader context. BLACK CONSCIOUSNESS Firstly, BC emerged together with a growing global Christian challenge to apartheid. The World Council of Churches set a benchmark at the Cottesloe Consultation (December, 1960) in response to the Sharpeville Massacre of March 21, 1960. At the consultation, South African churches, including Afrikaans churches, effectively rejected apartheid. The final statement read: “all racial groups who permanently inhabit our country … have an equal right to make their contribution towards the enrichment of the life of their country”. The World Council of Churches became further radicalised. By 1970, it had authorised the first of a series of financial grants to the banned ANC and other liberation movements. Secondly, my book helps to place BC in the wave of global protests in 1968. The sit-in by white students

at the University of Cape Town is normally given pride of place. But the protest by black students at the University of Fort Hare in 1968 led to a wider mobilisation across SA universities. During their sit-in, Fort Hare students sang the anthems Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika and We Shall Overcome. Their choice showed how their desire for national liberation and the influence of the Global Sixties merged. The radicals within the mainly white National Union of SA Students (Nusas) were quick to recognise the legitimacy of the challenge of BC and pushed for a change in Nusas accordingly. Thirdly, I locate BC in the rebirth of the labour movement. My book points to the limits of the binary that BC leader Steve Biko and philosopher Richard Turner have often been cast in. I argue for their common understanding of economic exploitation as the basis of apartheid. They agreed on the need for drastic structural change to address the social ills but disagreed on how to achieve this. Pointing to Biko’s thinking on the economic rationale of apartheid unsettles the pigeonhole that he is often placed in as a theoretician of race.

Fourthly, my book acknowledges the tension between BC and feminism. I show how female activists within the BC movement appropriated the liberation that their male comrades laid claim to. Lastly, my book uses the term “shock waves” to describe the impact of BC on organisations like Nusas and the Christian Institute. The Christian Institute was established by Reverend Beyers Naudé and a small group of Dutch Reformed clergy in August 1963. Naudé’s contact with Biko and BC activists in 1971 helped change the orientation of the institute. RECOVERING HISTORIES South Africa has important and often forgotten histories that must be recovered. The frustrations that are manipulated by populists need to be channelled correctly. South Africans need to remember the organisational and ideological efforts of the country’s noblest daughters and sons, and strive to follow in their footsteps. — The Conversation. • Ian Macqueen is lecturer, Department of Historical and Heritage Studies, University of Pretoria.

THE COOKHOUSE: MAKING LIFE SIMPLER

Craik Speirs Athlone Circle HAVING relocated to Athlone Circle from the Cascades area, Craik Speirs has created a new stateof-the-art salon for his team of experienced hairstylists and barbers. A bigger store with new equipment and fittings has set the tone to separate out the professional brand from the rest. What sets this elite and experienced bunch of people apart from any perceived competition in Pietermaritzburg? Well, it has to be their “Michelin star” type status; their image and appearance; their attitude; how they think and behave; the way they treat people and make them feel; the atmosphere; the décor; the music they play; the products they use; and the overall value they add. Speirs has just completed the one-year “master colour expert“ (MCE) programme, being the first person from PMB to have completed this global Wella course. The MCE programme is the most advanced of its kind, making it one of great value, teaching its delegates the latest in colour

technology and techniques. Speirs is now working closely with his team to ensure all Craik Speirs clients benefit from this new knowledge. Although men have been supporting and have utilised the Craik Speirs brand and services since the brand was born, men generally feel more comfortable in an exclusive and private environment when being groomed. For this reason, the brand has separate areas in store, creating a designated “barber shop” feel. Hot-towel shaves, beard grooming, ears, nose and eyebrow grooming and mini facials, are all on the new list of services available at Craik Speirs Man. So, no matter who you are, what your hair needs, the Craik Speirs Hair Company and Craik Spiers Man will take good care of you. This is not just another visit to a hair salon. This is an experience. Try it. It may change your life! #ExperienceLookingGood Craik Speirs Athlone Circle 0333471954. www.craikspeirs.co.za — Supplied.

THE Cookhouse is an innovative business dealing in the convenience food market, making life a whole lot easier in the fast lane we find ourselves living in. The idea is the brainchild of Tanya Nicolson, former owner of the award-winning restaurant Nicolson’s in Hilton. All recipes are created by Tanya’s husband Jonty, who is renowned in gastronomic circles throughout KZN. His speciality skills set The Cookhouse apart from other convenience foods. Bringing delicious, quality food to the family dinner table was Tanya’s vision, together with providing the convenience of saved time and added value. Products on offer are freshly produced frozen home-style meals. Simply defrost during the day and heat when ready to eat. No prep, little time and great convenience. Stock of the entire menu and all portion sizes are available in each store. So no need to order, simply pop in and shop. Also, pensioners (over 60) get 10% off on Tuesdays!

The menu includes a variety of dishes with ingredients sourced locally wherever possible and with emphasis placed on supporting home-grown products. The Cookhouse kitchen staff compliment includes a qualified male chef and seven women. Five more women are employed to manage the four stores now in operation, including the latest outlet at Athlone Circle. All employees have become part of The Cookhouse family and are integral to it’s success. Expansion plans are in the pipeline, although not to interfere with the balance of quality, service and administration. Tanya says “our heartiest thanks go to our loyal customers who have supported The Cookhouse from day one, back in 2014, and who continue to pop in for their favourites”.

Schizophrenia: being proactive with care can benefit your life B

EING diagnosed with schizophrenia is extremely daunting for a person and for their loved ones but, with the right treatment, people with the disorder are able to live a meaningful life. According to online mental health resource Psycom, most adults living with schizophrenia will experience the onset of symptoms by the age of 30. This impacts negatively on the development of a person’s lifestyle as it is at a point where most people are developing careers or academic growth. THE WORLD’S VIEW ON MENTAL HEALTH As society evolves, people are becoming more tolerant of mental health. More mental health awareness support groups and foundations are available, making support and funding for treatment accessible while also reducing the stigma associated with mental health disorders. Employers are also challenged to provide support and give people living with mental health issues an opportunity to maintain their lifestyles and continue their careers in a supportive environment. HOW DOES SCHIZOPHRENIA FIT IN? With advancements in treatment, many people with schizophrenia can work and function

in everyday environments. Completing tasks and successfully navigating work responsibilities creates a feeling of self-worth. This results in people presenting milder symptoms of the disorder. WHAT BENEFITS PEOPLE LIVING WITH SCHIZOPHRENIA? When assisting people living with schizophrenia, families and support structures are of utmost importance, and that includes employers who can offer the following support: • Personal time to gather their thoughts and get back to work • Support from in-house mental health coaches • On-site meditation services and wellness centres that give employees access to professional help. TREATING SCHIZOPHRENIA Due to the constant research into more effective treatments with less risk of relapse, longacting injectable treatment is available which can be administered on a monthly basis. What this does is create stability in the life of a person living with schizophrenia, and allows them to live and work with the disorder. If you know of a colleague or loved one diagnosed with schizophrenia, refer them to

HE Body Protection Compound (BPC) patch is ideal for men over the age of 40. All you need to know about the changes in the body that men need to attend to is explained in this article. For people with Crohn’s disease, IBS and other intestinal pathologies, BPC157 could literally be a life-saver. For everyone else a potentially healthpromoting health-insurance, which acts on signalling pathways that have been implicated in heart and vascular health and seems to play a role in the etiology of vascular dementia, Alzheimer’s. BPC-157 has also generated significant attention within the athletic community because of its ability to battle muscular or tendon injuries. The most common way to supplement with BPC-157(Body Protection Compound -Pentadecapeptide BPC157) has been via injection, pills or liquid. Globalderm has formulated a TransDermal Patch that you can simply stick to dry skin. BPC has been shown to: • Promote the regeneration of the cells of the intestinal wall (intestinal health); • Promote and accelerate muscle, tendon

and bone healing (sports and other tissue and bone injuries); • Accelerate wound healing, assist in healing ulcers and fistulas, prevent and reverse lesions of intestinal tract and liver; • From A as in “astaxanthin” to Z as in “zinc”. It seems, there’s a supplement for everything. Everything but active tissue repair. Yes, a healthy diet, anti-inflammatory vitamins and related compounds may help you recover from everything, ranging from the inevitable daily wear and tear of our stressful lives to a debilitating injury, but no legally available supplement has actively promoted wound, bone and overall tissue healing — until now. We have a 30-day supply available for purchase in our online store. Globalderm is a proud South African manufacturer of TransDermal Patches. Based in Pietermaritzburg, we deliver our products worldwide. For more information or to order visit our online store www.globalderm.co.za or contact us via WhatsApp on 083 383 2720.

Love your bones ARE you investing in your bone health? One of the key messages that came out of World Osteoporosis Day on October 20 is to invest in the future of your bone health at every life stage. What this means is that the earlier you start investing in the health of your bones and getting enough calcium in your diet, the better your bone health will be as you age. Consuming enough calcium in your diet is not only important as you grow older. Children, teenagers and young adults need enough calcium to continue building bone mass into their mid20s. From then on, bone mass can be lost without sufficient calcium in our diets. “Achieving peak bone mass before 21 will pay great dividends later in life,” says Professor Tess Van der Merwe, honorary clinical professor and researcher at the University of Pretoria. Whatever your age or gender, it is vital to include calcium-rich foods in your diet, limit those that deplete calcium, and get enough magnesium and vitamins D and K to help calcium build bone strength. World Osteoporosis Day takes place every year on October 20 to raise global awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis. If we do not have enough calcium in our diets, the calcium is removed from where it is stored in our bones. Over time, this causes our bones to grow weaker and may lead to osteoporosis — a disorder in which bones become very fragile, which can increase the risk of bone fractures. It is important to consume calcium from foods and beverages. Taking an appropriate calcium supplement is also a great way to increase your calcium intake as the right supplement will contain relatively large amounts of elemental calcium, that absorbs optimally in the body. B-Cal®, South Africa’s number one prescribed calcium range, has launched a new product to supplement

their already extensive range of calcium supplements to include a calcium supplement with a vitamin k2 offering. B-CAL®-K2 is a 5-in-1 formulation to promote bone health and prevent Osteoporosis and includes 500 mg calcium, 100 mg magnesium , 1000 iu Vitamin D3, 60 mg Vitamin C and 45 ug Vitamin K2. What sets B-CAL®-K2 apart from other calcium supplements on the market is the inclusion of magnesium, Vitamin K2 and Vitamin C which are clinically proven to help fight osteoporosis. While many of us might be aware that calcium, vitamin D and regular exercise are important factors for maintaining bone health, few of us are aware of the important role played by magnesium and Vitamin K28. In fact, research has shown that the heavy focus to date on calcium has resulted in less emphasis on how important other nutrients are for bone quality and the prevention of osteoporosis. Magnesium is increasingly being recognised as an important contributor to bone health, as it is essential for the absorption and metabolism of calcium. In addition, the right balance of calcium and vitamin K2 may help fight osteoporosis and enhance bone health while at the same time preventing the calcification and stiffening of the arteries which contributes to a healthier heart. Nutritional needs for bone health should ideally be met with proper food choices, but where vitamin K is concerned, even a healthy westernised diet has been found to include insufficient amounts of this important vitamin and not enough to satisfy the body’s needs. In fact, where bone health is concerned, supplementation of the average diet is recommended for vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin K8.

‘Angels’ are on a mission F

OR many children, their grandparents and parents are their heroes. Heroes who help them, nurture them and love them. What kids don’t know is that sometimes even heroes need help. Every day up to 360 South Africans are affected by strokes, with data suggesting that about a third of those who suffer a stroke will die, and a quarter will be left with a life-changing disability. The risk of stroke increases with age and in South Africa, stroke is the most common cause of death of people older than 50 years old. This October (Stroke Month), the Angels Initiative is on a mission to save South African heroes by getting families around the country to join the

FAST 112 Heroes. The FAST Heroes 112 team will be visiting schools to help children identify the signs of strokes, teach them what to do should one of their loved ones experience these signs, and turn them into the next generation of heroes. The team will provide the schools with material and teach them creative ideas to remember all important stroke facts so that they can remember how to save their hero. “Stroke awareness and education is important to the Angels Initiative. In South Africa 10 people suffer a stroke every hour. Getting the message across to as many South Africans as possible can save the lives of countless heroes,” says Carica Combrink,

Do you have NO more Medical Aid funds for GP visits?

WE WOULD LIKE TO ASSIST OUR PATIENTS AND OUR COMMUNITY

Angels Initiative project lead. A stroke is a “brain attack”that occurs when oxygen supply to the brain is cut off by a blockage or damage to a blood vessel in the brain. This causes the brain cells to die, which can be fatal or result in disability. The chances of recovery for stroke sufferers depend on somebody recognising that they are experiencing a stroke and getting them to an emergency hospital FAST. IF YOU SUSPECT A STROKE DO THE FAST TEST: Face: Smile and see if one side droops. Arm: Raise both arms. Does one arm drift down? Speech: Repeat any sentence. Is there trouble speaking or understanding? Time: Time saved is brain function saved. A person loses 1,9 million neurons each minute in which stroke is left untreated. Every minute counts in accessing care. “The FAST heroes 112 campaign aims to educate people about stroke and nourish the relationship between children and their care-givers, regardless of whether they are parents, grandparents or another person. If you think about it, in fighting against strokes, we are not merely mobilising against some disease, what we are doing is saving the experiences

which so often get stolen by stroke,” says Carica Combrink. Visit www.fastheroes.com for more information on stroke, to register as an ambassador or nominate a school to join the campaign. The Angels Initiative wants to provide families with tools with a dual role, to help spend quality time together as a family, and by doing so, transfer the knowledge about stroke through incidental learning. By identifying stroke symptoms and immediately calling an ambulance call centre, including 112, you can save a life. The Angels Initiative’s awareness campaigns and training activities are supported by medical company Boehringer Ingelheim, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, stroke support groups, regional health departments and other role-players. — Supplied.

Our sight is a gift A

S Helen Keller is quoted: “Alone we can do so little, but together we can achieve so much.” The team that cares for your health, and specifically your eye health, has many members and we are all committed to you, our patient. “We are privileged to play a role in the care of your eyes and your vision to maintain and improve your daily life,” says Allison Deysel, Pietermaritzburg Eye Hospital manager. Seventy-five percent of all cases of blindness are avoidable, through preventive actions or treatment, which is why learning about how to care for your eyes and making time to prevent what you can is so important. Protect the windows to your soul, look after yourself — you’re worth it! Prevention doesn’t have to be expensive. Self-care for eyes begins with day-to-day decisions such as protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays by using UV A & B filtering sunglasses and wide-brimmed sun hats (CANSA approved are best). These measures slow the formation of cataracts and pterygiums (whitish or yellowish growths of the covering of the inner area of the eye between the pupil and nose). Your eyecare team begins with your pharmacist, who can assist with simple advice and easily available affordable options for daily needs such as dry eye and allergy symptoms. Beyond self-care, your optometrist plays a critical role in assessing your eyes to identify any changes or progression of conditions. Sticking with a healthcare professional you trust is

particularly important for continuity of care so that they can compare the eyes to previous examination findings. For members of a medical scheme or life insurance policyholder, the cost of many screening examinations are allocated from a special fund and are not deducted from the savings portion of the fund. Communication with your professional about cost associated with care is important to ensure you benefit optimally from the resources you have available. Technologies have been developed and designs have been adapted for vision that changes with age. Smartphones, for example, have a range of settings for ease of use including adjustable font sizes for easy reading, a torch for low light conditions and voice control and response. Watches with clean faces and crisp numbers are as elegant as they always were. Camera zoom lenses can bring an image so close that you feel you could reach out and touch it. Similarly, eye-care technology and surgical procedures have vastly improved and expanded to improve outcomes and reduce risk of complications. There is so much more we can diagnose and treat now. General well-being and quality of life is maintained when you embrace the tools and use the resources that are available to keep safe, keep active and live life to the fullest. EXPERT TREATMENT. EXCEPTIONAL CARE. The Pietermaritzburg Eye Hospital is a specialist facility committed to eye health. Our patient-centric approach combines exceptional care and expert treatment. We examine, diagnose and

provide treatment through a team of doctors, each with their own area of expertise, who are supported by an experienced nursing team. Our highly-qualified ophthalmologists have extensive experience in diagnosis and treatment of cataracts, chalazion, diabetic eye disease, eye and eyelid cancers, glaucoma, keratoconus, medical retinal conditions and corneal grafts, ptosis, squint correction, tear-duct disorders, AMD (age-related macular degeneration). Certain symptoms are considered an eye emergency and require the attention of an ophthalmologist.

If you experience any of the following: sudden vision loss, altered eye movements, unexplainable eye pain, visual field loss or a bulging eye, contact an ophthalmologist or call Pietermaritzburg Eye Hospital for advice. We are here to help you, if you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 033 812 2020 or e-mail us at admin@pmbeyehospital.co.za Should you have an after hours emergency, you can call 033 812 2300 to contact the ophthalmologist on call.

Did you know repeated eye rubbing can seriously affect your child’s vision? Children who have allergies such as sinus problems, allergic rhinitis, eczema and asthma are likely to have ocular allergies. These present with symptoms such as recurring or persistent eye rubbing, red, ,itchy or teary eyes, frequent blinking or light sensitivity. These can be an indication of allergic conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin transparent layer of tissue that lines the inner layer of the eye. Conjunctivitis causes redness and itchiness of the eyes. There can be a sand-like or gritty sensation which causes the urge to rub the eyes. Conjunctivitis, when left untreated, can lead to a more serious condition, keratoconus. This is when the front clear layer of the eye, the cornea, thins and bows forward. Normally this layer is round like a soccer ball. In keratoconus it forms a cone. This occurs because the collagen layers (protein fibres) of the cornea, that holds the shape of the cornea, weaken. This can take place as a result of the recurring or persistent eye rubbing. Keratoconus, if left untreated, progresses and it can result in the need for a corneal transplant. Observe your children closely to look for eye rubbing or any of the other ocular symptoms mentioned above. Diligent use of the prescribed treatment and regular ophthalmic checks will prevent the progression of the above conditions and preserve vision. Dr Sanjay Lalloo

RICKET South Africa (CSA) and KFC celebrated a decade of partnership during the KFC Mini-Cricket Provincial Seminar, held at the Pietemaritzburg Oval on Saturday. Speaking on the importance of this partnership at the event attended by over 50 delegates, Howard Lethuba from CSA said the KFC Mini-Cricket programme is one of the most impactful and significant development programmes in the South African sporting landscape and goes far beyond the game of cricket. “It brings youngsters from across our diverse communities together and not only introduces them to our wonderful game of cricket but also allows them to get active. This is a very important programme that contributes to the social cohesion of our nation,” said Lethuba. Lethuba added that the celebration mostly acknowledges the coaches and coordinators, who all volunteer freely. “These selfless people need to be applauded for the commendable work they have done throughout the past 10 years, always bringing passion and commitment to the game,” said Lethuba. He highlighted that the programme is the entry level for the majority of our cricketers

into the talent development pipeline, emphasising that there are memories created during the programme which will live forever, through the involvement of children as ball boys and girls, as well as participants at the coin toss at KFC T20 international matches and during various interactive initiatives. Delivering a talk at the celebration, MiniCricket coach Johnny Philander said he looks forward to many great years of growing the programme and creating even more unforgettable experiences for the KFC minicricketers. He stressed that in, order for the programme to survive another 10 ten years, coaches need to stick to connecting with the mini-cricketers and what they do. “It goes without saying that there must be something right that the coaches are doing since the programme has existed for this long. And to continue maintaining this partnership, coaches need to take into consideration the cultural differences in teams and connect with the coaching as well as the players in order to develop some form of identity for the team and the relationship shared by the coach and players,” said Philander. Concluding, he said: “The skills developed in this programme go beyond the game of cricket. In the programme, mini-cricketers learn about leadership, discipline, team work and friendship.”

Swimming gala series commences T

HE Ribbon Gala Series at Howick Prep Pool have started. These galas are for any swimmer who can swim across a 25 m pool; wanting to take their swimming to the next level. This is a fun, relaxed guided experience for young swimmers to learn about the sport of swimming. Anyone is welcome besides those registered with the SSA. Everyone who participates at R15 per swim is awarded a ribbon depending on the time they took to complete their swim. This will help them learn their best time and what they need to achieve in their next attempt to get the next level ribbon. As young swimmers

learn to set small goals and improve their racing confidence, their swimming will naturally improve in this all inclusive approach. These Ribbon Galas then culminate in our highly popular Top 8 Medal Gala at the end of the season where swimmers are invited to race for a podium finish and are awarded gold, silver and bronze medals according to their positions. Age group champions and Victor & Victrix Loudorum are then crowned for the season. Only swimmers who have taken part in our Ribbon Series are eligible for selection to the Medal Gala. For more information, contact Liesel on 072 148 2447— Supplied.

FEVER REPORTER ORGANISERS of the Ward 34 Annual Community Awards are appealing to local businesses for support and partnership. According to one of the organisers, Jerry Barnes, although the stage may be set and the basics are covered, they believe if businessmen in the area came on board with their support, everything will go smoothly and make the event bigger and better. The awards ceremony will be on November 1. Barnes said when it comes to preparing for the

awards ceremony, his only nightmare is finding a sponsor for the awards’ dinner. “Since we started these awards in 2017, we always sit together with our recipients and have something to eat after the presentation. Unfortunately this year things are looking a bit quiet and tight, but I don’t want to give up,” said Barnes.
