5 ANC Premier's returning to their positions. 2 female premier's out of 8 provinces. 
Only two out of the eight provinces where the ANC is in charge are set to have women premiers, while five of the premiers are set to continue their terms.

Mankind shooting themselves on the foot.
 
Let's save the earth? 
The slogan should be "Let's save ourselves".
In the words of George Carlin, "The planet is fine. The people are fucked."
 The environment and life on earth are resilient enough to continue even after severe climate change and nuclear apocalypse. But humans and food sources we depend on are not. 
Saving our current environment is nothing remotely altruistic, it is just applying some long term thinking in our self-preservation instinct. 
Happy ‪#earthday

"A right to Freedom of Choice! Message after a day of human rights!

Why doesn't God simply ban evil? Why does God allow suffering? A question that has been presented by agnostics and atheists over time in an attempt to question God's existence and omnipotence.

To understand the answer, we must consider the consequences such an action would bring. Understanding why God allows evil and its resultant suffering requires a fundamental understanding of one of God's greatest gifts as well as how man has continually abused that gift.

The gift is free will or, as it more popularly called, freedom of choice. God granted this freedom to our first human parents, Adam and Eve, at creation. But over the millennia we have proven ourselves to be woefully inept stewards of this precious gift and its far-reaching responsibility.

As God explained to ancient Israel, the freedom to make choices is essential to developing righteous character (Deuteronomy 30:15-19). Without freedom to choose, we would be little more than robots, with our behaviour either preprogrammed and unchangeable or dictated in all its details by an outside force such as God Himself.

But that is not God's intent. He has different expectations of us because of His much higher purpose for us. He wants us to choose to obey Him from the heart. He wants us to enthusiastically love and cherish His values and standards, which are based on two overriding principles loving Him with all our hearts and loving others as much as we love ourselves (Matthew 22:35-40). As we will see, choosing to obey God and learning to love others when we have the freedom to do otherwise is vital for the future God has planned for us.

Of all the earth's physical creatures that God has made, man alone can exercise free will. Simpler life-forms, such as microbes and insects, are preprogrammed to react in certain ways to certain stimuli. They behave in accordance with their environment and have virtualy no independent decision-making abilities in the sense that man does.

The actions of more-complicated life-forms, such as mammals, are also largely governed by instinct, though they do make rudimentary decision when reacting to stimuli and adapting to situtions. Human beings alone among eartly creatures have an advanced sense of time. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God "has put eternity in [our] hearts." In other words, we can contemplate the future. We make far-reaching decisions and plan our lives months and years in advance.

We also study the past; we have a sense of History. We learn lessons from our experiences and the experiences of others. God gave the capacity for advanced decision-making abilities only to man among His earthly creation. God designed human beings to make choices. Yet we have never learned how to make consistently wise and properly informed choices. Nor have we learned how to effectively manage our emotions, motives and desire and their influence on our decisions.

Understand that the suffering we have in our lives and in the people around us are results of misinformed choices. When we act of our greed and selfishness as human beings, we choose to advance the legacy of suffering in our lives which will affect others in the long run.

Finally, "I call on heaven and earth as witnesses today that I have offered you life or death, blessings or curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants will live." (Deuteronomy 30:19 GW)

Exercise your freedom of choice today by chosing life!" - Abuti Rams

The sun and positioning of the planets. Makes me feel that sense of superiority that exists in every natural feature.
 
Sometimes it's good to feel again the dimensions of our world.

Another justification for the Nkandla debacle.

We going into elections with no substantiative closure.

President Jacob Zuma has opened up about why he reckons the R246 million security upgrades at his Nkandla homestead were necessary.

EFF leader J.S Malema labast's President Jacob Zuma in a battle ahead of votes on May 7th 2014(Election date South Africa). He justifies how his past mistakes should be fixed by him afforded. A chance to occupy government.

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has ridiculed President Jacob Zuma, calling him a “domkop” (fool) while slamming the rest of the ANC and union federation Cosatu for having “sold out”.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles roll
ed into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’

The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..

‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else—-the small stuff.

‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.

If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.

Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.
