  • 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.

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.
