SA broiler farms feel the pinch as chicken imports sore

Chicken lovers take a listen to this!
''Chicken imports reached a new record high in 2018, according to an imports report drawn up by the South African Poultry Association (SAPA) and based on official SA Revenue Service statistics.
Imports in 2018 totalled 538 434 tons, an increase on the previous record year 2016, when 528 108 tons of chicken reached this country. Imports dipped slightly in 2017 due to outbreaks of avian influenza (bird flu) in the European Union, which had been a major source of dumped chicken.
However Brazil quickly increased its exports, filling the gap left by EU producers and becoming the major source of both frozen broiler portions and of mechanically deboned meat (MDM) which is used in the food processing industry.''

Online this morning we speak to SAPA GM Mr Izaak Bruitenbach

Whatsapp bullying leads to teenage girl taking her own life

Another incidence of bullying is believed to be at the centre of what has led a 13-year-old Doornpoort Primary School pupil in Pretoria to commit suicide.
The parents of the Grade 7 pupil found her body in her bedroom on Monday.
The Sinoville Crisis Centre, which deals with matters affecting young children and teenagers, asked that the child's identity not be disclosed.
According to the centre, the teen sent her friend an image of herself, which was distributed among pupils on various WhatsApp groups. The pupils mocked and shamed her.
It is believed that the deceased was criticised about her physical appearance and that she felt humiliated and feared going to school.

Capetonians lose almost a week in traffic each year

Listen guys, so traffic I don’t need to tell you what a nightmare traffic is in Cape Town – and I feel its far worse since the start of the year. On most week days, traffic starts picking up from 2.30 pm in the afternoon already, which previously was unheard of.
So yesterday, we actually picked up an article stating that the average Capetonian spends a massive 162 hours each year sitting in traffic, the equivalent of nearly a week. According to a Global Traffic Scorecard by INRIX which analyses the traffic congestion and mobility trends in more than 200 cities across 38 countries, Cape Town is ranked 28th in terms of traffic congestion.
So to help us understand why our roads are so crazy, is Megan Bruwer, the project coordinator for the Stellenbosch Smart Mobility Laboratory. She’s also a lecturer in transportation engineering at Stellenbosch university
