“Eating fat does not make you fat.” Grauniad reports "In a damning report that accuses major public health bodies of colluding with the food industry, the National Obesity Forum and the Public Health Collaboration call for a “major overhaul” of current dietary guidelines. They say the focus on low-fat diets is failing to address Britain’s obesity crisis, while snacking between meals is making people fat.
Instead, they call for a return to “whole foods” such as meat, fish and dairy, as well as high-fat, healthy foods including avocados, arguing:

So sad to see this following the years of reconciliation, reconstruction and development in South Africa.
In teh last few weeks, teaching had been suspended in the Vuwani district of the northern province of Limpopo after about 20 schools were burnt down by local residents, now this :(

Mozambique's tuna fleet rusts as an African success story fades - Reuters
The 24 fishing boats rusting in the harbour of Mozambique's capital were meant to be a modern tuna fleet that would rake in hard currency, create jobs and provide a cheap source of protein for one of the world's poorest countries.

Fun and games - looks like the EU is planning to haul Britain before the EU courts - just weeks before the Brexit vote - for charging foreign lorries to drive on UK roads after the British government introduced a levy of up to £10 a day two years ago to 'level the playing field' given that British truck drivers already had to pay tolls on the continent. So it looks like even though British hauliers also have to pay the charge, the EU will claim it unfairly penalises foreigners ... more here from +SPIEGEL ONLINE http://www.spiegel.de/international/europe/eu-commission-to-mount-legal-challenge-of-uk-truck-toll-a-1089114.html
The European Commission had hoped not to provide fresh anti-EU ammunition to pro-Brexit voters ahead of Britain's upcoming referendum. But SPIEGEL has learned that Brussels is planning to launch legal proceedings against the UK over its truck toll.

Came across this from Dr Adam Dalby,a junior doctor working in Antrim - shortly to move to Yorkshire, where he will work under the Government's new contract ..... "I continued to support strike action until March 31 2016, when the first draft of the contract was released. I decided to do something radical, and actually read all 80 pages.
It was something of a revelation. This contract gave a 13.5 per cent uprating in basic pay (compared with the 11 per cent that had been previously offered – pay clearly had mattered in the negotiations, despite the BMA's claims to the contrary). It introduced an innovative way of monitoring hours, under dedicated guardians. It limited the total number of hours that could be worked in a week from 91 to 72. It gave 15 days study leave to first-year doctors. It cut down the number of consecutive nights and long days from the previous contract, and gave a guaranteed, 48‑hour break between consecutive long night shifts and night work."

Persistence hunting is a rare and difficult skill, where San hunters use a combination of tracking and endurance running to relentlessly pursue an animal.
To protect them from the burning hot sand and sharp thorns the Ju/'Hoansi made sandals from eland skin, one of the thickest and most durable leathers in Africa. They stopped making the sandals because hunting restrictions stopped the supply of skins, and today, only the tribal elders retain the knowledge and skills of how to make the hunting sandals.This project is a partnership with a Ju/'Hoan San community, to help revive the ancient skill and assist them to make and wear their traditional walking sandals.

Own a pair of the original bushman San-dals, designed for persistence hunting and barely changed for thousands and thousands of years.

So sad to see what Mandela's legacy is being turned into ....
+Financial Mail "I am so heartsore about what is happening to Pravin Gordhan (Finance Minister) that I can hardly bear to write about him. Here is the most decent and honourable of South Africans, a true servant of the people, being hounded and harassed and threatened by shadowy, slithering powers that he might once, years ago, have considered comrades. Jacob Zuma’s intellectual inability to protect his own economy from harm is one thing. Actually preparing, slowly, deliberately and consciously to do the damage himself surely has to border on treason, or sabotage. No? Okay, then he is in almost no danger himself. He simply poses one to his country and, big time, to his party.
It is when leaders become detached from normal life that they begin arresting colleagues who disagree with them. What we are seeing in our country now are all the floodgates of exile ANC politics being opened, the thieving and lying and betraying that crippled the organisation almost wherever it operated suddenly being laid bare before all the people so we can watch. Back in exile, where nobody was watching, you could get away with the most vile behaviour and all it has taken for it to happen before our eyes is for the Leader and his coterie to pretend there’s no-one else in the room."
