  • White settlers never stole any land from Africans: iLIVE

    Black Africans never owned any land. Black Africans NEVER owned any land. Who "disadvantaged" the 'black' people of the interior in Southern Africa before the (supposed) belligerent 'white' settlers moved inland in the mid 19th century..? As certainly, what the 'settlers' found was not a hugely advanced infrastructure, deep mines, airports, vast libraries of written works, grandiose institutions of learning, etc. No, as little as 170 years ago they found masses of black people (indigenous to the Southern tip of Africa, The San) living on the fringes of the stone age.

  • 'We've found another Earth'

    Not only is this planet in the "Goldilocks zone" - where life can exist because it is neither too hot nor too cold to support liquid water - its star looks like an older cousin of our sun, the space agency said. Known as Kepler 452b, the planet was detected by the agency's Kepler Space Telescope, which has hunted for worlds like ours since 2009. "Kepler 452b is orbiting a close cousin of our sun, but one that is 1.5 billion years older," it said. If the planet is rocky, and the scientists believe that it has a better than even chance of being just that, then it could be in the midst of a fearful scenario, as the heat from its dying star evaporates Kepler 452b's lakes and oceans.

  • No dialysis for HIV sufferer - Western Cape | IOL News

    A family has questioned Groote Schuur Hospital’s policy on its dialysis programme, saying doctors are “playing God”, while violating a kidney patient’s right to healthcare, after their young relative was sent home to die. Nomtha Loretta Mazana, 28, from Gugulethu was discharged from Groote Schuur last week after doctors told her she didn’t qualify for dialysis because she has HIV but was not yet on antiretroviral (ARV) treatment. Mazana, who was admitted last Wednesday with severe headaches, said the doctor that treated her had instead advised her “to go to church as she needed to be strong spiritually” when dealing with renal failure.

  • Nudism in full swing in KZN as opposition backs down

    After bringing in police to arrest nudists when the province's first legal nudist beach opened in April, threatening to lodge a complaint with the public protector and appeal to the Hibiscus Coast Municipality to change its approval, the opposition group has "vanished". The Concerned Citizens Group, which claimed to represent thousands of residents in towns along the province's South Coast, has not "put a stop" to the nudist beach, as it had planned to do. "It seems as if all those who were opposing the beach have ridden into the sunset," said SA National Naturists Association chairman Serge Pavlovic yesterday. The group's spokesman, the Rev Mike Effanga, could not be reached for comment.

  • Bobbi Kristina Brown's funeral scheduled for Saturday

    The family of the 22-year-old aspiring actress, who died at a hospice last Sunday (26.07.15) after being found unresponsive in a bathtub at her home near Atlanta on January 31, will reportedly gather to mourn and celebrate her life at St. James United Methodist Church in Alpharetta, Georgia before she is buried next to her late mother, Whitney Houston, at Fairview Cemetery in New Jersey next Monday. The Fulton County Medical Examiner released the starlet's remains at approximately noon yesterday, after completing an autopsy to determine an official cause of death. A source told UsMagazine.com that family members, including Bobbi Kristina's devastated father Bobby Brown, were originally hoping to hold the funeral tomorrow, but pushed it back to enable all of her loved ones to attend. Last month, Bobbi Kristina's conservators filed a $40 million lawsuit against her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, accusing him of domestic violence and of stealing her money.
