• 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.

    Why does South Africa have the largest HIV-positive population in the world? 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.

  • Black shakes up white preserve of game farming | The New Age Online

    The game breeding industry in South Africa is the epitome of white, khaki-clad Afrikaner life -- just the sort of business that black entrepreneur Mike Gcabo loves to break into. "I have a number of black investors who have invested their money with me and I set out to deliberately bring them into the fold," said 48-year-old Gcabo, who has a goatee and wears a black baseball cap. Some whites fear that South Africa could eventually suffer a similar fate as Zimbabwe, where land was seized from white-owned farms with disastrous economic consequences. In contrast, Gcabo -- who made his money as a mining consultant and later served in government -- is upbeat about the future and keen to share his expertise and enthusiasm.

  • 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.
