Idees vir ’n Warm Winterhart-projek

D

ie winter is hier! Die koue klop aan die venster, dit is tyd vir lekker pannekoek en sop, en die Kaapse reëns betrap ons gereeld sonder ’n sambreel. Maar … wat van hulle wat nie ’n sambreel het nie – ook nie ’n huis met vensters of ’n ietsie warm om te eet nie? Vir talle minderbevoorregtes hier in ons streek is die winter vreesaanjaend. Ons hart bloei wanneer ons ’n man, vrou of kind op straat sien wat in wind en weer staan en bedel. Die meeste van ons wil graag iets vir hulle doen … maar ons weet dat om geld te gee nié ’n goeie idee is nie. Hier is wel ’n klompie goeie idees; dit is prakties en dit kan maklik saam met jou gesin, jou vriende of jou klasmaats aangepak word. Só kan julle ’n verskil maak: MAAK MAGIES VOL! Maak blikkieskos bymekaar, en rys, bone, pap, langlewe-melk en ander nie-bederfbare produkte, en begin ’n kosbank. Daar is altyd gesinne wat daardie kos bitter nodig het, én organisasies wat na sulke gesinne probeer omsien. Julle kan hier ’n groot verskil maak – en só ander se magies so vol soos julle s’n kry! ÓÚGOED IS WARMGOED Die koue en nat weer kry ons almal onder – maar het jy al daaraan gedink dat daar mense is wat in hierdie nat winter nie skoene het om aan te trek nie? Gaan kyk ’n bietjie in jou kas – en loer sommer in jou broer of suster of ma of pa s’n – en tel ’n bietjie

die pare skoene en tekkies wat nooit meer gebruik word nie. En die jeans wat nooit meer gedra word nie (omdat dit te styf sit!). En wat van die opgevoude kombers wat al twee jaar lank ongebruik daar lê? Dit is tyd dat daai goed ’n nuwe huis kry! En onthou sommer ook daardie serp wat nie meer cool is nie. Daar sál iemand wees wat dit sal LOVE! Onthou die Engelse spreekwoord: “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure!” MAAK KLEINGELD GROOT! Kies ’n organisasie wat jy wil ondersteun – en doen dit dan! Kyk, ’n mens het mos altyd ’n klomp kleingeld in jou beursie (dalk gooi julle dit in ’n bottel wat iewers in die huis staan). Moedig jou bure, ouers en die res van die familie aan om van daardie swáár sente – én die ewe swaar blink geld – ontslae te raak.

Stuur vir ons fo to’s van júlle Warm Winterha rtprojek!

Stel dan ’n doelwit: Hoeveel geld WIL jy insamel? En: Wanneer wil jy die projek voltooi? Vertel al wat leef en beef daarvan op Facebook en whatsapp. Kry nou sommer jou hele skool hierby betrokke. Gaan teken dan ’n prent of die skoolwapen met bordkryt op ’n parkeerterrein of sommer op die netbalbaan (hoe groter die prent, hoe meer plek vir die geld!). Op ’n spesifieke dag – of by ’n spesiale geleentheid wat jy met die onderwysers gereël het – bring almal dan hulle kleingeld en pak dit binne-in die getekende prent. Jy sal jou verstom oor hoe groot kleingeld word! Daar is ’n KLOMP maniere om in hierdie winter ’n verskil te maak. Hierbo is maar drie idees.

6 Ways to Keep Your Kids Healthy this Winter By Heather Montgomery www.everydayfamily.com

As winter arrives, you may be dreading the colds, flu, and general ickyness, that seems to accompany it. Here are six tips to help you and your children stay healthy this winter. WASH YOUR HANDS
 It’s estimated that children with proper hygiene miss 2 days of school each year, while children who do not practice proper hygiene miss 3 days a year. Teach your children to wash their hands well, and often. This includes before and after meals, after coughing or sneezing, after using the restroom, and when they come home from school. You can also use alcohol-based wipes or gels when a water source is not readily available. KEEP WARM
 Make sure you and your children are dressed appropriately for the colder weather. Jackets, gloves, and hats are all important clothing pieces to protect against the elements and keep your body in tip top shape. EAT WELL
 Make sure your children get wellbalanced meals. Give your family the vitamins and minerals they need, so their bodies have the energy to stay healthy. SLEEP Sleep is one of the most

important things we can do to give our body a leg up against sickness this winter. Each member of your family should get at least 7 hours of restful sleep each night, more for your younger children (10-13 hours). FOOD SAFETY As you prepare your holiday meals, wash your hands often when handling food. Keep any raw meats, poultry, and eggs away from food that is ready to eat or already prepared. Invest in a quality food thermometer to check the temperature of all of your cooked meals, make sure they are at least at the proper eating temperature. Do not use the same knives, cutting boards, or utensils to prepare raw foods and ready-to-eat foods. QUARANTINE If you still get sick after taking precautions, quarantine the family members. Do not allow your children to return to school until they are 24-hours free of fevers or vomiting. Wipe all surfaces with disinfectant, as well as washing clothing and bedding in hot, soapy water. Consider getting your children a flu shot this year to give you a leg up against sickness.

Music &

your ears ... Written by: Monika Nagel B.Communication Pathology.Pret (2007)

Many of us are experiencing a new found love for i-pods and other earphone listening music devices. They are a sanctuary from loud traffic noise and work tasks. Every time we put them in our ears, we can however not stop ourselves from hearing our parents’ ever echoing words: “Put that softer or you’ll go deaf!” The reality is that our parents were absolutely right. Listening to loud music or any other loud sounds can cause permanent, irreversible hearing damage. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have concluded that any sound louder than 85dB can cause permanent hearing damage. Most listening devices have a maximum output of 103dB. At this level, only 15 minutes of listening can and probably will cause permanent hearing damage. When it comes to music devices, the golden rule is listening to music at a volume no louder than 80% (90dB) on your music device. Even then, it is important to listen at this level for no more than 90 minutes daily. After 90 minutes of listening, our hearing cells or cochlear hair cells are tired, and need a day or so to rest and recover.

Music has many positive effects on our emotional wellbeing and is therefore an important part of our everyday lives. We should however never forget about the wellbeing of our ears and hearing abilities. Once you have a hearing loss, you will never be able to enjoy the music as well as when you first developed your initial love for it. “My car is capable of driving 120 miles an hour (193km/h) down the streets, but as society we have set speed limits because those are safer. We need to set some sort of speed limit for music listening.” – Dr. Cory Portnuff (University of Colorado)

HANDY HINTS FOR YOUR HOME

These Handy Hints will remind you of the ways you can save around the home – some you may be able to do, and others you may not be able to do, but every single one of them can help you save money and energy. Even if you only choose one or two, it all adds up!

FRIDGE/FREEZER

• Check seals and doors. Doors need to close firmly. • Check the temperature. Fridges work best between 3° and 5°, freezers work best between -15° and -18°. • Room to breathe. Fridges and freezers run better with air circulating around them.

HEATING

• Check the temperature. Keep the room temperature between 18° and 21° in winter. • Seal those cracks and gaps with blockers like a door ‘snake’ • Throw on a jersey so you can turn your heater down • Keep the curtains closed to keep

the warmth in.

HOT WATER

• Shorten your shower to save water, money and energy! • Fix those dripping taps. They can waste up to 1 litre of water/hour • Hand wash single dishes instead of using the dishwasher • Try a front loader washing machine they use less water and up to 60% less energy

ELECTRIC PUMPS

• Use the right size, and don’t pay for wasted energy • Install a timer, and only use it in off peak times or when you need to • Use a pool cover, this can reduce the need for filtering.

YES, YOU CAN RECOVER BAD DEBT The adverse effect that bad debt has on any business is aggravated by the current economic climate. As a result of the legal cost implications, more and more individuals and businesses are shying away from handing bad debt over to Attorneys for collections. This leads to an increase in bad debt written off, and effectively allows the consumer to get away with having received goods and/or services for free.
