THE CONNECTING ROOM

There is a common understanding that as parents the most difficult conversation you can have with you children is about sex. But what about discussions on race, crime, prison and so on.
A recent article spoke about how a family member was murdered.
The adults were mindful of not speaking about the act of murder in front of their children, who are nearing two and five.
But somewhere, the children had heard and while on a usual errand the 5 year old asked what is murder.

Heartbreak can be such an intense experience that some scientists suggest it feels the same as physical pain.
A 2011 study found that people had similar brain activity when they viewed a photo of a former love and when they burned their arm.
It might even be possible to die of a broken heart.
People who are in the early stages of grief are more likely to experience increased blood pressure and heart rate, which can raise their cardiovascular risk.
A 2018 study found that widows and widowers were 41 percent more likely to die within the first 6 months after losing their spouse.
The researchers suspect this was a result of a 53 percent increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

THE HOT BOX

The Competition Commission included a scathing assessment of Uber’s practices in South Africa as part of a new review into the passenger transport system.
On Wednesday, the commission published a report that included proposals to overhaul the taxi licensing system in South Africa.
This is to help increase competition and level the playing field between metered taxis and their e-hailing counterparts.
As part of its report, the Commission detailed criticisms of Uber’s operations in South Africa, including allegations that some of its drivers may now be earning less than the minimum wage, as their incomes continue to fall.
For a trip of less than 2km, an Uber driver used to earn a net amount after commission of R68 when the e-hailing company first launched in South Africa in 2013, and when it still was looking to attract drivers.
But as more operators flooded the market, this has since been whittled away to only between R17.75 and R18.50:
On average, an Uber driver now needs to do four trips to reach the same amount of earnings he earned in 2013, the Commission found.

THE HOT BOX

According to city press Columnist Sipho Masondo, The ANC has run its course and has reached a dead end from which it is close to impossible for the party to offer South Africans anything of value.
He says The party has entered a twilight zone from which the only logical step is to plunge into the graveyard of political parties which failed to transform themselves from being liberation movements into political outfits running 21st century economies.
The piece recounts how following the election in 1994, The ANC came into power with no money in the Treasury.
The National Party’s politicians had plundered every little cent when they saw their regime collapsing and the then new government was left with billions of debt.
But In a matter of a few years the ANC built Treasury and the South African Revenue Service, collected billions in taxes and settled all the previous government’s debt.
So efficient was the ANC with finances that former finance minister Trevor Manuel ran a surplus for a good few years.
Masondo goes on to comment that black people are not able to run anything efficiently is propaganda.
But we look at were are now and know for sure the ANC of then is not the governing party of to day.
