  • Cape in asteroid tsunami zone

    The map, which combines data on population density with data on where asteroids would most likely hit, came about after software was developed at the University of Southampton in the UK. Astronomer Nicola Laoring, of the South African Astronomical Observatory, says the map indicates that Western Cape would be at risk. "If an asteroid hits water, which is a distinct possibility given that 70% of the Earth is covered in water, then the impact could result in a tidal wave causing a tsunami in coastal regions. "The western coast of South Africa is also a high risk area as it lies along an asteroid impact corridor," she said.

  • Zuma's nine-point plan aims to make ANC members rich: Zille

    In her weekly newsletter posted on the Democratic Alliance's website, she said the plan Zuma presented on Thursday disguised his real intentions, which would benefit his network of loyal cadres. "It is an insider enrichment scheme disguised beneath the mantle of the so-called 'developmental state', a word which in ANC-speak, means precisely the opposite of what the English language intended it to," Zille said. Zuma's nine-point plan included resolving the energy crisis, adding value to the country's mineral wealth, and encouraging private sector investment. Focusing on Zuma's call for the energy crisis to be resolved, Zille said this was what South Africa needed, but the African National Congress was not putting any plan into action.

  • Chris Brown unhappy about his mom seeing daughter

    The Loyal hitmaker has filed to have his paternity over 13-month-old Royalty established so he can go to court over custody and child support arrangements with the tot's mother, Nia Guzman, and insiders claim he made the move after his bid to see the youngster this week was blocked because she was with her paternal grandmother Joyce Hawkins - who Brown has a strained relationship with - in Virginia. According to TMZ, Guzman insists this is the only time she has ever stopped the 26-year-old singer from seeing his daughter, but it seems that was enough for him to make the decision to take legal action. While the model had been seeking around $15,000 a month in child support, Brown had wanted to pay $2,500 but they had reportedly agreed on $10,000 a month, effective from this month.
