  • Photos of drowned Syrian boy shock world as refugee crisis grows

    Harrowing pictures of a drowned Syrian toddler washed up on a Turkish beach brought home the horror of the escalating refugee crisis on Thursday as Europe was accused of letting the Mediterranean become a "cemetery" for migrants. Ugly scenes erupted meanwhile in Hungary as migrants refused to get off a train to be moved to a camp, prompting Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban to lash out at Germany over its handling of the spiralling situation. Europe remained deeply divided over the response to the worst crisis of its kind since World War II, despite the heartbreaking images of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi lying dead in the surf after the boat taking his family to Greece sank.

  • De Gea doesn’t need olive branch - United - Premier League

    Reuters Manchester United insist it is not necessary for Louis van Gaal to make a trip to Madrid to repair his relationship with David De Gea. Manchester United insist it is not necessary for manager Louis van Gaal to make a trip to Madrid to repair his relationship with David De Gea, after the collapse of the goalkeeper's proposed transfer shattered the 24-year-old's hopes of a move back to his home city. As Ander Herrera insisted his compatriot was too good a professional not to reintegrate rapidly at Old Trafford, sources at the top of United rejected the suggestion that a trip was required similar to the one Sir Alex Ferguson made to Lisbon in 2008 when he persuaded Cristiano Ronaldo to delay a move to Real Madrid for one more year.

  • Selfie madness: Too many dying to get the picture

    The rise of selfie photography in some of the world’s most beautiful, and dangerous, places is sparking a range of interventions aimed at combating risk-taking that has resulted in a string of gruesome deaths worldwide. The act of taking a picture of oneself with a mobile phone, placing the subject centre-stage, has exploded in popularity in recent years, with everyone from Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II to U.S. President Barack Obama joining in. Dozens of grisly selfie-related deaths and injuries in early 2015 led Russia’s Interior Ministry to launch a campaign warning avid mobile phone snappers about the danger of, among other things, posing for a selfie with a lion. In June, two men in the Ural Mountains died after posing pulling the pin from a hand grenade; in May a woman survived shooting herself in the head in her Moscow office; a month later a 21-year-old university graduate plunged 40 feet (12 metres) to her death while posing hanging from a Moscow bridge.

DA leader Helen Zille asked these questions in her statement on Sunday, "Tackling the new Aids denialism", - and she was also kind enough to give us the answer to bringing our HIV-infection rate under control. Zille said the reason we top the list of countries with the largest number of people living with HIV is because we are unfaithful. Quoting Dr Helen Epstein's book, The Invisible Cure on the HIV Pandemic in South Africa, Zille said the only countries in Africa that have turned the Aids pandemic around are those that have focussed on partner reduction.
