The Best Festivals in Cape Town: May and June 2016

http://insideguide.co.za/best-festivals-in-cape-town-may-june/
May and June might be chillier in Cape Town, but these festivals laugh in the face of winter. These are some of our favourite fests in and around the Mother City.

Accidental discovery could help batteries last years longer

Today, most smartphone and device batteries are made from lithium and slowly lose capacity over thousands of recharges. Researchers at UC Irvine built a battery that substituted gold nanowire in electrolyte gel for the lithium and lost barely five percent battery capacity over 200,000 charge cycles — but they aren't totally sure how it worked.

See http://www.engadget.com/2016/04/22/accidental-discovery-batteries-last-years-longer/
While fiddling with nanowire and gel, scientists made a battery lasting over 200,000 charge cycles.

On Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning the ANC spin machine was forced to go into over-drive to explain the huge swathes of empty seats at the party’s election manifesto launch in the Nelson Mandela Bay metro. It followed a difficult week, in which the Gauteng ANC had spoken out against President Jacob Zuma, and ANC Women’s League leader Bathabile Dlamini was reduced to tears on the streets of Port Elizabeth. It is becoming increasingly clear t...

Follow the money.... This is why the ANC's Women's League and MK Veterans Association are hell bent on supporting Zuma.
Allister Sparks writes: "Now, the Guptas have gone. Whether they will return is hard to say. But I have a suspicion they wanted to escape the fallout from what could be the Vesuvius of all Zupta eruptions. The story of the Gupta family’s involvement with uranium mining in SA has been compiled in some detail by a researcher named Lily Gosam...
The story goes back to 2010 when Oakbay bought Shiva Uranium, then a struggling operation, for a knock-down price of R250-million — about 14% of its reported value at the time. There were claims that Zuma intervened to persuade the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) to lend Oakbay the money after the more natural state institution to help with such a deal, the Public Investment Corporation, turned it down as a bad buy.
But at that price, it was a snip if things had gone the right way for the Zuptas. The deal included a number of black economic empowerment partners, among them the ANC’s MK Veterans Association, its Women’s League and a group called Mabengela Investments, of which Duduzane Zuma owned 45%."

South Korea covered up mass abuse, killings of 'vagrants'


BUSAN, South Korea (AP) — The 14-year-old boy in the black school jacket stared at his sneakers, his heart pounding, as the policeman accused him of stealing a piece of bread. Even now, more than 30 years later, Choi Seung-woo…

Seriously good coffee shop with a steampunk theme. Has been rated "the world's best coffee shop". Service can be a bit slow, because they're always very busy.

"Dive bar" themed gastropub. Lots of interesting menu items. A bit pricey.

Deluxe Coffeeworks roasts my favourite coffee in Cape Town. This is the main roastery in Roodehek Street. It has a seriously cool "hipster" vibe, and shares The Yard with The Dogs Bollocks and The Witches Tits. Seriously good place to grab a coffee.

Dodgy bar. Not for the faint-hearted. Good for hardcore alcoholics and partiers. Gambling machines in the back.

One of Cape Town's oldest pubs, and one of the best to get pub grub at a decent price. Not a gastropub. Lots of screens if you're a sports fan (I'm not). They do a good sunday lunch.
