Polar bears and iPads, ice bergs and Blackberry’s, forests and Twitter.

This week’s post deals with the issue of our world’s resources, and the severe crisis in trying to sustain these valuable commodities. I stumbled upon this post whilst wading through a very long list of new Twitter feeds. 

Now because I am a Journalism student, I've had to adapt to the habit of receiving an inordinate amount of news, at all hours of the day and using my own filter to decide what I need to read right away, what I need to read by the end of the day, and what I can add to a list of things I’ll hopefully read later on this year (key word – hopefully).

First things first… I am not a hippie. I am not a tree-hugger. I am not a political activist. I am just a Journalism student, who has a keen interest in History, Politics and humanity’s incredible ability to ruin all the good stuff about this planet of ours.

I am a cynic. I am critical. I do believe that we can use history and past mistakes to fix the present and secure a better future. Global warming - I think I believe it exists. The apocalypse of 2012 – I’m rooting for that to be real, for it to be a cleansing session for our world. South Africa – I’m a true patriot at heart but very aware of this country’s flaws and inability to solve crises.

SA media threatened

Posted by TechAngel in SAPS , media , Journalism


I was disturbed to hear this afternoon of a Sunday Times journalist being arrested and forcibly removed by the SA Police Service at the Sunday Times' offices in Rosebank. Such acts are reminiscent of the apartheid days prior to 1994.
