On Saturday 12 April, Johannesburg saw the annual Mrs South Africa CANSA Gala dinner, where the Top 24 finalists for 2014 were announced at Emperors Palace, the official host of Mrs South Africa. The finalists were revealed in all their glory at the event in aid of the pageant’s official charity, The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA). The Top 55 semi-finalists started their journey at the beginning of March and have been helping (CANSA) as health and fundraising volunteers working with CANSA staff to provide care and support to those affected by cancer. In 2013 the pageant and their finalists raised over R300 000 for CANSA. The Top 24 breathtakingly beautiful finalists, who will be contending for the crown, are out to impress the 2014 Judges: Cindy Nell Roberts a former Miss South Africa and Principal Judge Simba Mhere, who is a Top Billing presenter. As well as Lourine Wannenburg – Owner of Eden moon productions, Marelize Steyn Earle – Former Mrs South Africa and Vuzi Zwane – Emperors

Palace Executive. This formidable panel judged the contestants based on criteria that they believe the Mrs South Africa 2014 winner should embody. “Traditionally the pageant world is portrayed as a superficial and a ‘beauty’ only orientated industry,” says Joani Johnson, CEO of Mrs South Africa. “Mrs South Africa is a pageant of substance. We look for real women, women who are wives, mothers, and homemakers. They are ambitious, successful and businesswomen. Mrs South Africa is an empowering organisation, giving women from all around the country an opportunity to make their mark.” The Grand Finale will be on 8 August, a month that celebrates women, at Emperors Palace where the new Mrs South Africa will be crowned. The night promises to deliver a glamorous affair that will celebrate all women from all walks of life.

World Travel Awards: D’ oreale Grande Hotel

Jittetjie tog, hierdie Pistorius-saak is omtrent boeiend. Gysie rol al sy oë wanneer ek die tvkontrole by hom vat, want hy weet presies watter kanaal ek gaan kies. Daar is nou al soveel nuwe fasette van die saak geopenbaar gedurende Pistorius se kruisondervraging, maar hai wee jy, ek weet wraggies nie wie of wat om te glo nie.

tragedy. Now to get the obvious answers out of the way, remembering definitely affects us positively when one considers that just by remembering we can make sure such happenings never happen again. So we buy our tickets in time, arrive at the stadium ahead of time and we stay away if we do not have tickets for games. Is that just about correct? This is easy when dealing with the second issue, but when we remember Hani and many others who lost their lives fighting for the South Africa we now call home then things become slightly shifty. When Churchill said history would be kind to him, he indirectly revealed a trait of mankind. We will tell the story but only from a viewpoint which highlights points which make us look better or better yet in a manner which forces the receiver of the story to view us in a

positive light. I don’t particularly have a problem with this, if nothing else this mannerism encourages everyone to tell their story. What I do have a problem with is the shortage of an openminded story receiver, South Africa remains divided precisely because of this. I was driving somewhere during the week when I noticed one election poster which read “the SACP says Do it for Hani - Vote ANC,” and this got me thinking. What good will an ANC vote do for the memory of Chris Hani? Then the answer came to me - History favours those in power.

tame TIMES readership – per month

History will be kind to me for I intend to write it - Winston Churchill Is there any value in history? Does remembering benefit us equally? These questions probably seem random I know, but that is only because you are not yet in my mind-space. Just to give a little background on what got me considering these questions, in the previous week as South Africans we remembered the death of Chris Hani in 1993 and we also remembered the 43 people who tragically passed away eleven years ago in what we today know as the Ellis Park

Ek wil nie teveel tyd spandeer om te spekuleer oor waar moontlike leemtes of waarhede in die saak sit nie, want wie is ons om te sê wat nie eers daar was nie? Ek wil eerder gesels oor die kwessie van vuurwapens. Dit is vir my verregaande dat mense vandag sommer so gemaklik met jag-vuurwapens kan rondloop. Ek begryp dat ons in ‘n land woon waar die ruwe werklikheid van roof en misdaad altyd dreig, maar as die wette en regulasies rondom vuurwapens nie streng is nie, dan maak mense makliker duur ongelukke. Ek glo as niemand vuurwapens besit het nie, sou daar nie soveel skietmoorde gewees het nie; hetsy nou per ongeluk, of doelbewus. Maar hoe maak ‘n mens nou? Besit ‘n mens geen vuurwapens nie, dan kan jy jouself dalk nie verdedig indien daar ernstige gevaar is nie. En as ‘n mens ‘n vuurwapen wel besit, kan dit weer te maklik misbruik word. Tip: Hierdie week wil ek ‘n vraag vra: Is dit beter om streng rëels rakende vuurwapenbesit in plek te stel, of nie? Is dit net ‘n kwessie van verantwoordelike gebruik daarvan? Of is die nagevolge van vuurwapenmisbruik bloot net te ernstig om kanse te vat?

The show must go on

GLAMOUROUS: The ladies learning to belly dance.

The lovely ladies of the East Rand Business Women Forum (ERBW) were at Birchwood on Wednesday for their monthly get together to network and to take some quality “me” time out of their busy schedules. The beautiful and talented Tarryn Rego, a 26-year-old natural beauty and also the founder of Hizi-Hizi, treated the ladies to a display of belly dancing. It was stunning to see Rego dance and everyone appreciated the skill and practice required to be an expert. Rego shared with the ladies how she balances her career as a chemical engineer with her passion for dancing, especially belly dancing. She mentioned that she has applied “The show must go on” to every facet of her life and encouraged the audience to go make their lives happen no matter how they are feeling. The audience had loads of fun trying out their belly dancing skills as Rego taught them a few basics. Hizi Hizi is a group of belly dancers who get together to train on Saturdays. They perform at a lot of charity events and fêtes. “I’ve been a hiphop-, latin-, tap- and modern dancer since I’ve been four years old and added belly dancing to my list of skills at age 11. It was my mother Leslie who introduced me to this form of dance,” said Rego. After a visit to Egypt, she fell in love with belly dancing and years later I decided to give it a try. I have a natural talent and passion for this dance form and found a

Tribute to the Bee Gees Bee Gees admirers can relive the energetic pop trio from 4 to 26 April 2014 at the Odeon Showbar at Emperors Palace. Local performers, Mark Richardson, Luciano Zuppa and Paul Buckby have collaborated to replicate the greatest Bee Gees hits for The Bee Gees Tribute Show. Bee Gees brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb rocked the 1960s and early 1970s, and dominated the disco music era in the late 1970s. They topped the music charts with greatest hits, such as “Stayin’ Alive”, “Night Fever”, and their beautifully harmonised ballads “Massachusetts” and “I started a joke”, to name a few. The Bee Gees Tribute Show covers a range of their hits from both the earlier days, as well as the upbeat and flashy disco era. The intimate showbar ensures that the audience forms part of the interactive show; the singers frequently dance in between tables and they are not shy to pull you up onto your feet to disco rock with them. Bee Gees fans can look forward to a very colourful, energetic and glittery evening filled with beautiful showgirls and disco balls. A few of the audience favourites so far include: “Tragedy”, “More than a woman”, “How deep

is your love”, “Stayin’ Alive” and “You should be dancing”. The tribute trio accurately imitated the famous high-pitched vibrato lead vocals, as well as the three-part tight harmonies and the Barry Gibb’s signature falsetto notes reminiscent of the late 1970s and 1980s. According to an article on the Emperors Palace website; “‘Night fever’ with the month long Bee Gees Tribute Show”, Paul Buckby said that they decided to take on the Bee Gees not as an attempt to replace them, but to celebrate their talent and legacy: “Barry Gibb once said that the Bee Gees would like to be remembered for their music long after they had gone. So we are ot trying to fill the shoes of the Bee Gees; we’re just lifting our hats!” The Bee Gees Tribute Show will run until 26 April at the Odeon Showbar at Emperors Palace. Performances take place every Friday and Saturday night at 20:00. Tickets cost R80 per person and can be purchased at the door; Winners Circle members qualify for discounts. Groups can pre-book booths for up to five people for R400. Book your tickets through Emperors Palace Box Office on 011 928 1297/1213, or at www.emperorspalace. com and www.computicket.com.

Get ready for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of SpiderMan. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time

with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being SpiderMan comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realise that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp. Release date in SA: 25 April

FIGHTING TO THE TOP: Sbusiso Zingange not backing down against his opponent, Nkosinathi Ntshangase. Amateur lightweight boxer Sbusiso Zingange from Boksburg dominated the Balance Rhythm Dedication Boxing Promotions tournament on Thursday 10 April at Gold Reef City Casino. Zingange fought relentlessly to achieve the highest amateur boxer score at the tournament; an impressive 60 to 53 win. This was Zingange’s fifth tournament fight, and so far he is unbeatable. As soon as Zingange and his competitor, Nkosinathi Ntshangase, locked horns in the boxing ring, all the spectators were circling the crate with anticipation. Zingange struggled through the first three rounds, and his opponent, who already had fourteen fights under his belt, seemed to have the upper hand. Zingange, VICTORY: Sbusiso Zingange and his proud boxing coach. however, surprised everyone when

he dropped Ntshange unexpectedly in the fourth round, after which the last two were spent merely improving his winning score. “The first two rounds were difficult. I pushed and pushed. After four rounds I saw that this was my fight,” the proud victor said. Zingange intends to continue his winning streak all the way to nationals. Boxing South Africa CEO, Lousa Mcha, also attended the tournament and expressed his delight to see the support for future champions, such as Zingange, in the making: “The fights were evenly matched. It’s a good sign to see a lot of boys on their way up. This is a good opportunity for people to come and appreciate boxing. I hope BRD will carry on doing what they do,” Mcha said.

It is that time of the year again, when we are entertained with the Indian T20 Premier League, which involves all of the big hitting batsmen in the game from around the world. I say big hitting batsmen, as this is what has made this tournament the success it is. The tournament will start in Dubai tomorrow and end in India on the 1st of June due to the elections in India. Since it’s inception in 2008, it must be said that the batsmen have far out weighed the bowlers, in terms of results. The hitting of boundaries wether they are four’s or sixes is what has brought the Iikes of the Chennai Super Kings and KKR in the past as the the eventual winners. The IPL is pretty much a hit and a miss if you are a bowler, as you need the luck that goes with this format in hoping that the batsmen miss hit a few. The ICC sanctioned festival of cricket brings together the best of the best when the teams try and set the highest run rates possible. The Overseas players that represent the individual franchises play a huge and responsible role when it comes to the bragging rights in India with the locals. The Chennai Super Kings are two time winners of this title, with Indian skipper MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, Brendon McCullum and our own FAF DuPlessis, would seem to have the balance and experience to win a third title. However, there are a couple of other teams that will surely come close. Gary Kirsten is the new Delhi Daredevils coach and has the services of Quinton De Kock, JP Duminy and Kevin Pietersen who will hopefully challenge Dhoni and co. Other contenders for the title should come from Mumbai Indians who have ‘Mr Cricket’ in Michael Hussey, Rohit Sharma and Lasith Malinga, as well as the Royal Challengers Bangalore boasting the brilliant Virat Kohli, AB De Villiers and Chris Gayle. It should be a fantastic spectacle of cricket in it’s own right. My bet is that Dhoni and his Super Kings will grab a third title.
