STORIES

Does eating carrots improve your vision? Well, it must do...have you ever seen a bunny with glasses? That’s a story we all know, but while there is some truth to it, it’s actually partially a con... WW2 propaganda was at the root of this food-related tall tale, told by many parents to get children to eat their vegetables at the dinner table. The myth that carrots help with night vision was actually started by the Royal Air Force during World War II. In an effort to keep their new radar system under wraps, the RAF claimed that eating lots of carrots gave its pilots the edge in the skies, helping them to spot enemy planes. While this wasn’t technically true, the orange veggies can help promote healthy eyesight. Carrots contain beta-carotene, a compound which your body converts into vitamin A and then into a light-sensitive pigment called retinal.Retinal is found in the cells at the back of the eye and helps to convert light into a signal that can be transmitted to the brain.  Now you know!

 

So we all know about recycling, but Coca Cola has taken it to a whole new and quite frankly brilliant level. They have taken their different size plastic bottles, From 250Ml to 500ml to 1 and 2 L and they are transforming the way people use things in and around the home. They are rolling our lids for their bottles, now these lids are all different but they fit ALL the diffierent size bottles. Like "one lid fits all", and the lids are for instance like, a lid that will control paint coming out of it for kids in school. Another lid is a sprayer lid, so you can fill the coke bottle with water and spray your plants or fill it with ANYTHING that you want to Spray. There is a handsoap pump, LID that get attatched you can use it for handsoap or shampoo or whatever and there are I think 12 different household type lids that you can use and reuse all your plastic coke bottles, I really think its an ingenius idea.

 

This year, 2016, sees the introduction of no compulsory school fees for secondary schools, and, like the case was with primary schools which implemented the same a few years ago, the one thing that stands out is that financial pressures on these schools increase dramatically, and there are many parents at Govt schools  who cannot afford school fees and it’s great that their offspring are not excluded from school because of financial reasons. But there are many parents who can afford to pay but choose not to. Now it is their prerogative, but since schools now are going to be under more financial pressure than ever, one would think that a contribution would be valued...there is now much confusion about parents who have paid already being able to claim the money back from the school...at least that’s according to the Ministry of Education, but one parent from Swakopmund said  the school in question refused the refund and said it would be considered a so called “voluntary contribution”...so, the minister said schools must pay back or suffer the consequences...and confusion reigns supreme.  So, question today...if you know the school needs the money and you can afford it, will you pay voluntarily...or will you refuse to even if you know the quality of education offered at your child’s school will suffer due to a lack of money?
