WINNERS!!!

Jan Braai VUURWERKE Stoney Steenkamp & Johnene Janse van Vuuren are the winners of Jan Braai’s Vuurwerke. Happy braaiing!!


An Eggscellent Dish!!!

The first time I ate frittata I must have been about seven years old. It was served to me by my friend Paula’s mother, who was this short little Italian mama who loved to prepared delicious little dishes for us to eat after school, I loved the name of this open-faced omelette and felt very grand telling my mother in my best Italian accent that we had ‘frittata for lunch’. I went to bed that night saying the word ‘frittata’ over and over until I thought that I sounded Italian. The Italian word ‘frittata’ derives from ‘friggere’ and it roughly means ‘fried’. I used to love watching Paula’s mother beat the eggs and cook them with mushrooms which she had simmering in golden butter, some Parmesan cheese and spring onions with a little bit of garlic, and then cook it all together over a slow heat and finishing it off in the oven under the grill. She said that one should always first cook ingredients like mushrooms or tomatoes and zucchini first, as they have a high water content and would make the frittata watery and unpleasant. I have never forgotten her advice. A frittata is a wonderful dish to serve to a crowd at breakfast and you can be made in a large ovenproof dish. What I like about a frittata is that you can clean the fridge out and put all the little bits and pieces into it and it always turns out beautifully. My friend Enzo makes the most delicious frittata using leftover spaghetti and lashings of Mascarpone cheese and Parmesan cheese – it tastes like heaven. I love to make one with petite pois, Mascarpone cheese, Parmesan and mushrooms. There are so many delicious combinations, it’s up to you and your tastebuds. Try one for dinner or lunch or even breakfast – they are delicious hot or cold and make a great addition to a picnic.

Baked Mushroom 4 (starter portions) Leek Frittata Serves Preparation time: 15 minutes Let’s Cook!

Cooking time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

• 2 tsp Canola/olive oil • 1 medium leek, white and light green parts only, cut in half lengthwise and thinly sliced • 250g sliced mushrooms (a mix of white button & big brown) • 1 tbsp water • 1 clove garlic, minced • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme • ½ tsp salt • Freshly ground pepper, to taste • 6 large eggs • 1 cup evaporated skim milk • 1 cup (120g) shredded Parmesan cheese

Method 1. Preheat oven to 190 °C. Spray a 22cm pie dish with cooking spray and set aside. 2. Heat Canola/olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add leeks and sautée three minutes, until softened. Add mushrooms and sautée five to six minutes until softened and most of the water has evaporated. Add 1 tbsp water to deglaze the pan. 3. Stir in garlic, thyme, ¼ tsp salt and pepper, and cook for one minute until fragrant. Remove from heat. 4. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, evaporated skim milk, remaining ¼ tsp salt and pepper to taste. 5. Sprinkle ¾ cup of cheese in bottom of pie dish and top with mushroom and leek mixture. Pour egg mixture on top and sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup cheese. 6. Bake frittata for 30 minutes until top is puffed and golden brown.

Chris ‘Woody’ Wood Will Farquarson Dan Smith Kyle J Simmons Since they first burst onto the music scene in 2010, Bastille has become one of Britain’s most instantly recognisable chart-dominating bands. Their hits, like Pompeii and Of The Night, have become global festival anthems, blaring out from stages across the world from Cincinnati to Zurich, from Cape Town to London, From Joburg to Paris. AWSUM News caught up with them on their recent SA tour.

Q You have gone from a relatively unknown four-piece band to one of the UK’s and the world’s best-loved indie bands, playing sell-out shows across the globe, at breakneck speed. How did Bastille happen?

Q Who are your music icons?

Q Who are the Bastille band members?

A That’s such a tough question. The Fugees, The Beatles. Bowie, Prince and Hendrix. Also Bon Iver, James Blake, Kanye, Frank Ocean, Sigur Ros, Christine and the Queens, Rationale. Yeasayer, Vampire Weekend … I could just go on listing artists for ages. It would also be good to have some comedy there as well. Regina Spektor is awesome. She’s an incredible songwriter, and her voice is amazing.

A The band consists of lead singer Dan Smith, drummer Chris Wood, guitarist Will Farquarson, and bass-guitarist Kyle Simmons.

Q Welcome back to South Africa. Dan, you have special ties with this country. Tell us about it.

A It all started with Dan and his songs and his laptop in his bedroom. In about 2010 we started playing in pubs and things started to take off and build and build. Pompei happened, and we ended up being known around the world.

Q Where do you enjoy performing the most – big arena or smaller venues? Why? A There’s not really a preferences, and festivals are great as well. We love performing in South Africa, and especially at Emmarentia dam in Joburg. In fact, prior to our performance at the O2 arena, this was our biggest gig. We’ve also recectly done a tour of small clubs in the US and UK, playing the new album from start to finish. It reminded us how awesome it is to play tiny, sweaty venues where you can see everyone’s faces and get stuck right into the crowd. From performing in tiny pubs in London, to arenas and then festival main stages, performing outdoors was the best, and we look forward to our gigs at Emmarentia Dam in Joburg and at the Botanic Gardens in Durban. There is something really special about playing in a beautiful setting. Being from the UK, we don’t really get to play headline shows outdoors. In a lot of other countries like in America, they have big sheds to perform in, but in the UK it is either inside or you are outside at a festival, so getting to play in warm and beautiful settings is very cool and very exciting for us. Q What was a highlight (or two) of the band’s career so far? A Certainly the first night we played at O2, as far as shows go. We have a great job – we travel the world!

AWSUM NEWS OCTOBER 2017

A I love South Africa because my entire family are either from SA or live in SA. It’s also a beautiful country and it is an amazing place. When we got the opportunities to play some shows in SA a few years ago, we were all very excited. I was very excited to show the band and the rest of the guys in our crew that I work with, to show them the country for the first time. None of them had ever been to SA. When we got there, we got to see how well known our music was. We have been looking forward to coming back and performing. We look forward to performing in front of the Durban crowd, and singing Durban Skies. It’s also a nod to my family history and the importance of South Africa in my life and my family’s life. Even though my sister and I are both Londoners, it is the idea of being from South Africa and being South Africans that has been a part of our lives. Q What can the South African audiences look forward to? A Defintely a mixture of new and old songs. Our album Wild World has been talking about the world, questioning it, being confused by it. We’ve spent the last year singing songs about how abhorrent we find certain politicians, and we have a stage production that involves footage of a shadowy politician figure making this visual. The new arena show has loads of special effects and video and is a rave. This show is the biggest thing we’ve ever done; we want to do it properly and put on an interesting, conceptual, impressive show. But obviously we’re not that big of a band, so it’s just trying to get to that point, working together with everyone to put on something that’s going to be fun and creative.


AWSUM

Celebrity Interview Q What is the theme of Wild, Wild World? A The loose theme of the album was that the world can seem quite messed up sometimes when you’re watching the news, but that everyone’s got to get up the next day and go to work – and that people, human relationships and friendships, stuff like that, are such nice positive things … there are no worthy intentions with the record or anything; we see each song as quite different. They are all little stories in and of themselves, but that was just a theme that seemed to just keep cropping up, in and amongst of the rest. I don’t know how escapable world events seem sometimes. It’s not meant to be really dramatic and it’s not a political record, it’s not meant to have any one kind of message – we’re just four idiots!

A Woodie: I play football very badly. Will: Woody is kind of the dad of the group. Kyle: Yes! Woody can change a car tyre. I think Dan might be able to, but I certainly can’t. Dan: Well, I would try! Chris: Kyle can drive a forklift truck. Will: Although I can fly a plane.

Q What is your favourite song on the album?

Q Who would the band like to have around the dinner table?

A One we think is going to be super fun live once everyone knows it is Lethargy. Four Walls is one that so many people who have heard the album are drawn to.

A Someone like Gary Lineker, who would have tonnes of stories, and definitely Keith Richards.

Q Will your next album be similar? When is it due?

Q What would the band like to achieve over the next few years?

A Our third album is well under way, and will be released early next year. We never really stop writing and recording, but we can confirm we spent a lot of this year writing our third album. We wanted to do something that feels a bit different, wanted to take it a step on from our last record and acknowledge that since we released that album the world seems an even more bizarre and tempestuous place. However, the album wouldn’t necessarily dwell on that, and would serve as an apocalyptic party record instead.

A We would love to simply keep producing music and if we can continue to play live as long as possible, that would be great. We are always thankful to be where we are now, but always looking to further expand and, of course, continue to write more records.

Q You also make the popular Bastille mixtapes. Any more in the pipeline? A We are glad to let fans of our mixtape series, Other People’s Heartache, know that a fourth edition will be released soon. It’s a bunch of very weird covers, a bunch of new tunes, and some surprising collaborations. I can’t tell you what’s on it yet, but it will be out this year, with the new album to follow early next year.

Q What do you do to relax? What other things do you do?

Q What are the band’s favourite TV show? A We’re all massive fans of the survival television show Naked And Afraid. We stumbled upon it on the tour bus and became completely obsessed with it. Q What message do you have for our readers about leading a successful life and achieving your dreams? A Don’t give up. Do what you want to do. Keep on going. Practise and you’ll get better.

Wait for it…the countdown to summer has begun, so get yourself sorted with the latest bits ‘n pieces that will take you from chilly to chilled out. Pepe Sofianos stacks up the must-have stuff that says it all.

SUMMER STUF F

There’s a sure way to get your yeah hair sorted – all you need is a nifty Tangle Teezer. It’s quite unique because it has two-tier teeth that do double duty. The longer teeth tease and detangle and the shorter teeth smooth and define. It’s also great for back-brushing to add volume and easily brushes out. Tangle Teezer is small enough to fit into a girlie bag, jacket pocket or gym bag so you can touch up your mop anytime. • For the girls there’s the Skinny Dip compact styling hairbrush in a kitschy-cute tropical palm and flamingo print from one of London’s top accessory designers. It also gives your tresses a serious shine, so babes, think of it as lipgloss for your hair. • A special edition Tangle Teezer Compact Styler with the Star Wars iconic characters and one with its most fearsome warrior, the Stormtrooper is for the guys so you can have perfect hair on the move - even if it’s gone over to the dark side!

Wowee Kylie! Check out how she works those cowboy boots with itty-bitty shorts and a T.

IT TAKES TWO TO TANGLE

I’M LOVING… …these big blue mirrored sunnies. They spell summer perfectly and they’re unisex, so you can always borrow each other’s shades. Sharp!

Oh yeah – it’s Ian Somerhalder from the Vampire Diaries like you’ve never seen him before looking real cute in that hat.

HATS FOR CHAPS

Hats for guys are IN for this summer. And the best part is that they really do look stylish and they make a change from the never-ending cap squad. After all, they also protect your scalp and face from the sizzling effects of the sun, so more kudos to you for wearing one. The best hat for the season is a trendy straw Fedora – it’s sporty enough to wear to the beach and it’s right at home when Blue hat, R129, you want to be more H&M. Cream hat, city slicker. R99.99, Mr Price.

Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama goofing around with the mother of mirror shades.

They cost R290 each and are available at Clicks stores and also online at www. takealot.com.

MIRROR, MIR RO THE COOLE R ON MY FACE, WHO ST DUDE IN THE PLACE? IS OK no need to look any further. Super shades for summer are mirrored, blue or green with silver frames and you can go aviator or round. Get both and swap them to match your mood.

Mirrored aviators and John Lennon rounds are hanging out in all your fave stores like The FIX, H&M, Mr Price, Truworths Man, Cotton On from R59.99 to R359.

SUMMER BOOT CAMP Who said booties are just for winter? Summer may be the season of sandals but you can still totally rock your beloved ankle boot and be right on top of the hottest trend of the year. Models and celebs are just totally in love with this look by adding a pair of chunky booties with the essential go-to denim shorts, taking skimpy skirts to new levels with Dora boots like Jessica Alba or simply adding sass to a sunny dress with cowboy boots. Whatever the combo, boots are a great way to freshen your summer. Take a look at our street style inspo on how to work them now.

BRACE YOURSELF, BRO…

How about investing in a bracelet to vamp up your look? Guys, there are some trends that just don’t fade and one of them is the surfer’s bracelet. Call it that or friendship bracelet or whatever, it’s all about piling them on. The latest lot are braided bands with anchors and seaside stuff or switch to rattling a bunch of chains. Put as many bracelets on your wrist as you want and mix and match them -- - don’t worry, they are never too much!

HEY GIRL, YOUR EARRINGS DON’T MATCH! Ha! Who cares? The MISMATCHED EARRINGS trend is one hectic look but trust me, it’s an accessory milestone that will linger, simply because it’s OTT and very easy to pull off and gets you noticed. It’s caught on with high-flyers like Ivanka Trump who wowed guests at a red carpet event. It also adds a bit of a runway edge to any look because it’s different and creative. So when you want to spice things up a bit, wear mismatched earrings. Works every time. Best of all, it means you don’t have to cry a river when you lose one earring --- just pair it up with another lost ear-hugger and you’ve got your own designer earrings. Have fun!

Health & Wellbeing 6 Benefits of giving up caffeine

Feeling inspired to kick the coffee habit? Here’s 6 ways your body (and your wallet) will thank you.

There’s nothing quite like the alluring scent of coffee brewing in the morning – but too much caffeine can wreak havoc on your health. Caffeine is addictive. For many of us, having a cup of coffee in the morning is just an automatic part of our routine – we feel like we need it to wake up and function. Missing one cup when we’re hooked can lead to headaches, irritability and fatigue. Breaking free of your dependence on coffee gives you more control over your health, encouraging your body to use its own natural sources of energy. Here are some of the ways a break from coffee can benefit you:

1. More energy Coffee might perk you up, but experts say the idea that coffee gives you energy isn’t actually true. The burst of alertness you feel is a stress response that gives you a short-term artificial lift. Just as if you had perceived and external threat or danger, your muscles tense, your blood sugar elevates and your pulse speeds up. This high is followed by a crash, and withdrawal effects such as fatigue and headaches can set in. Regular coffee-drinkers know that the boost you get steadily lessens over time, so you end up needing more and more to get the effect you crave, making it difficult to rely on the body’s natural source of energy. If you can break your dependence on caffeine, those daily fluctuations of alertness should even out, giving you more consistent, natural energy throughout the day.

2. Less stress Giving up coffee can help you lower your stress levels and calm nerves. Because caffeine stimulates an excess release of stress hormones and interferes with brain chemistry, it can contribute to states of anxiety and depression. It also blocks the production of the body’s natural calming and mood-elevating neurotransmitters such as serotonin.

3. Better sleep It goes without saying that sipping an espresso after dinner will keep you up, but coffee can disrupt your quality of sleep even if you drank it earlier in the day and the buzz you feel has long worn off. Studies suggest that caffeine consumed six hours before bedtime can shorten the deep-sleep phases of your sleep cycle, resulting in poorer sleep quality and duration. Sleep experts suggest not drinking coffee or other caffeinated products after lunchtime, or at least eight hours before bedtime, to avoid it disrupting your sleep.

4. Weight loss If you usually take your coffee with sugar, milk or flavourings, giving up your daily grind also means cutting down on your daily sugar and fat consumption – that mocha caramel latte has hundreds of calories hidden away! The link between coffee itself and weight is contentious among scientists, but some research suggests that drinking large amounts of caffeine can slow down your metabolism and lead to the abnormal retention of fat within cells, contributing to weight gain over time.

5. Better digestion Coffee is acidic and contains compounds that can irritate the lining of the digestive tract. In some cases, this irritation can lead to digestive discomfort, indigestion and heart burn; in others it can contribute to conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, gastritis, GERD and dysbiosis (imbalances in your gut flora). It can also prevent you from absorbing vital nutrients properly. Giving up coffee is a great way to show your digestive system some kindness, helping you to process your food efficiently and comfortably, resulting in more energy and greater overall wellbeing for you.

6. More cash in your pocket We all know the price of a good cup of coffee keeps getting higher – but what gets harder to keep track of is how much each one adds up. Just think: if usually you buy one coffee a day, five days a week, at an average of R25,00 each, that’s around an extra R500,00 you’ll have in your pocket at the end of a month to spend however you like. https://www.medibank.com.au/livebetter/6-benefits-of-giving-up-caffeine/

How to replace screen time with foundational reading skills

Most parents are very aware that too much screen time for young children isn’t a good thing, but many are just as uncertain about what exactly the problem is and, importantly, how time can be more constructively spent without it becoming an additional daily burden adding to the stress of the adults. Taking the guesswork out of quality family interaction, which also assists in the development of the child, is half the battle won. Parents who rely on some screen time to get a bit of a breather shouldn’t feel guilty, but they should ensure they also spend time every day connecting with their children through activities. Activities, which are both fun and will aid the cementing of the skills they will require for reading success in future, can be woven into the daily routine. Research into the reading brain indicates that 40% of children learn to read easily, but 40% of children are at risk and 20% at severe risk. Over twenty thousand studies of children failing at reading in the USA indicated that the bottom 40% of readers lack phonemic awareness, which is the ability to hear, identify and manipulate individual phonemes –

1. Talk and listen

So how can parents help their children?

In these days of digital media, we are talking less to each other and much of the communication taking place is instructive, such as: ‘It’s time to bath.’ ‘Pick up your clothes.’ Instead, try to focus on generating discussions, for instance talk about the highs and lows of your day; introduce topics such as: ‘If you could do anything you wanted, what would it be and why.’ ‘Tell us about the best thing you saw today.’ It is important to ask open-ended questions (which don’t have a yes or no response), to elicit full answers. Dads are especially good at this!

2. Read to your child Read both fiction and factual books from a very young age and join the library to give a wider choice. Choose quality stories that link to your child’s interests, not just Disney ones. Let your child see you reading books and magazines. When you read a menu, shopping list, or road sign, involve your child and discuss how wonderful it is to be able to read and understand the information around you.

3. Sing and recite Sing songs, recite rhymes together and read poems. Rhyming is such an important pre-reading skill, but fewer and fewer children learn any rhymes at home. Nursery rhymes are basically historical nonsense but children love them and they are easy to memorise.

4. Play with words Play with compound words – breaking popcorn into ‘pop’ and ‘corn’, fishtank into ‘fish’ and ‘tank’, etc. They make good car games, and make a walk to the shops shorter and more fun. I Spy is another fun favourite but use the sound at the beginning of the word, not the name of the letter. Cat starts with ‘k’ not ‘cee’.

«

Activities as listed above should be fun for adults and child, and should not become another chore for parents, but rather an easy, entertaining way to connect as they go through their usual routine in the morning and the evening. Additionally, to build solid listening skills, parents should not repeat instructions and comments, as this programmes a child not to listen the first time. Parents should make eye contact (lower the phone!), and pay attention to what their child is saying so that they model the desired listening behaviour. Above all, be excited about your child’s developing language and literacy skills. Investing quality time in your children can be achieved by including them in daily routines. Complementing this time with activities such as the above can make a tremendous impact on setting a child on the path to their own personal academic excellence.

the smallest unit of sound in the spoken word. The human brain is wired for developing spoken language which is why, with good personal interaction, babies develop speech from an early age without intentional teaching. But there is no automatic brain wiring for reading and spelling, so all aspects of these skills need to be taught systematically and explicitly. Modern life has increasingly seen young children spend significant amounts of time in front of screens, which focus their brains on visual more than auditory content. The major problem with screen time is that much of the spoken content of what they watch is too fast and often indistinct, making them less likely to concentrate on it. This has impacted on the development of accurate listening skills. This all sounds quite negative, but the good news is that brain repair and the re-routing and development of neurons are possible and that with correct teaching, the children who would have learned to read easily will read at a higher level while the ‘at risk’ children will be able to read well.

Education The business of being a student

1

8

7 5 4

While students find themselves halfway through the 2018 academic year, some are fully embracing the quintessential student life, while others are placing greater focus on the beginning steps to their future careers.

Transitioning from high school learner to varsity student can be challenging. Some relish the care-free student lifestyle, while others are eager to take the first step to career success and adulthood. If you find yourself in the second mindset, career-driven and looking for a way to kickstart your entrepreneurial journey, it is suggested that you approach your studies as a CEO would approach their business. The following tips can help start you on that journey:

To-do list item no. 1: Make a to-do list As you transition from varsity to the working world, you will find your days filled with an ever-changing list of deadlines and tasks to complete. You may find that everything seems urgent, and the mountain of work intimidating. Like most challenges in life, it’s all possible if you approach one task at a time. Manage your work load (and stress levels) by keeping a daily to do list, prioritising the importance of tasks by deadline date, impact or volume of work. As the saying goes “failing to plan is planning to fail” - develop the habit early on and nurture it throughout your career.

Healthy body = healthy mind Maintaining a healthy a diet is important, even if fast food is the most convenient - balance is key. Try to get those greens in, drink lots of water and remember that you need a healthy and happy mindset if you want to perform at your best. Take at least 30 minutes out of your day to move your body. Whether its hitting the road, lifting weights or a simple walk outside, the most successful people maintain that a strong body is the key to a strong mind. Exercise also releases endorphins, improving your mood, helping you sleep better all while reducing stress and anxiety.

It’s okay to nap – just make it a power nap After a long day of lectures, and a night of studying ahead, you may feel sluggish and slightly overwhelmed. Give yourself a break and enjoy a power nap (20 to 30 minutes should suffice) to improve your mood, refresh the mind and allow you to continue at peak performance.

Classmates now, colleagues tomorrow #networking The longer you are in your chosen profession, the higher the chance that you will come across an ex-classmate or varsity friend. Classmates at varsity could easily end up as colleagues or business partners down the line and these relationships should be nurtured from early on. You are in charge of your own reputation and ultimately your personal brand. The network you build and nurture in varsity could impact your future business connections so do your future self a favour and give some thought to how you treat and interact with your peers.

Varsity is a fun, chaotic, exciting learning experience with all kinds of adventures. Be sure to embrace each and every experience, while balancing your studies with your bustling social life. Be a youth, but keep an eye on your future and treat your varsity journey as an early business venture. After all, the only time success comes before work is in the dictionary.

We really embodied the spirit of what a Rainbow Nation is, clothed in the vibrant colours of the South African flag and different African patterns. During our amazing Heritage Day Eucharist, a few girls shared some information about their respective cultures in their own language. It made us all appreciate the intricacy of language and how it speaks to identity. The whole experience made

people see the value of their culture and the importance of not losing touch with their history and heritage. It gave us something to think about and really question our roots. The students who did not wear traditional clothes wore a South African shirt to show their pride in our country. The entire day was filled with excitement, laughter and the spirit of Ubuntu. It was phenomenal. Thank you to everyone who took part in the day and showed off who they really are. Article by Promesse Nkongolo and Pelo Mpuru (Grade 12).

Showing: From 27 October 2017 Created by: Jean-François Tosti, David Alaux, Eric Tosti, Julien Fournet Developed by: David Alaux, Eric Tosti Written by: David Alaux, Eric Tosti, Jean-François Tosti Summary: Not a patch on the Madagascar films, this relentlessly chirpy kids’ animation is set in a colourful jungle menaced by a pyromaniacal koala bear called Igor (overlooking even the basics of natural history, since it’s a fact widely known that koalas sleep for up to 22 hours a day, the lazy blighters). The only thing standing between Igor and jungle annihilation is a plucky orphaned penguin and his gang of underdogs. Loud and zappy, The Jungle Bunch trots out predictable be-kind-be-brave platitudes, but lacks anything distinctive of its own. And at the risk of sounding like a nannyish custodian of young minds, it’s pretty aggressive in places – one of the good guys is a dimwitted gorilla with an almighty thump.
