HIV/AIDS has plagued South Africa for many years now. The infection rate is among the highest in the world. According to estimates drawn from surveys, one out of three women under age 25 are living with HIV. In 2009 a phone-based counselling centre called RedChatZone was launched to support and to give information to those living with HIV.

Me & a Ukulele

So... I'm an aspiring Ukulele player.  Well, sort of.  I haven't got one, have not even searched for one, have no idea what these things cost... but I've been listening to some awesome Ukulele tunes on Youtube and have just made up my mind to learn the Ukulele.

As we get older I guess these adventurous compulsions don't find us that often anymore.  But I'm reviving that ghost of a creative from whichever closet she's slumbering in and will attempt to learn something new every month.

Currently I am teaching my dumb left-hand how to write.  It's a daunting task, and I've no idea how I decided to undertake this feat, but I'm sure there must be some-or-other great mental asset to being (artificially) ambidextrous.

According to the following article on Sport24.co.za, Iran's girls football team has been kicked out of the Youth Olympic Games because FIFA rules prevent players wearing an Islamic head scarf.

Note that in principle I am not a supporter of anything Fifa does at all.  I am also not a Muslim, in fact I am a Christian and even I can see the problem with this.

Across the globe Fifa is waving around this message that football brings people together.  It is a game for the world to enjoy and it spreads a message of peace.  So how is kicking a team out of the tournament based on them wearing Islamic head scarves supporting this ideal they are trying to promote?

Their(FIFA’s) rules state: "basic compulsory equipment must not have any political, religious or personal statements.”
