The Family Africa

What a wonderful Youth Day with about 50 plus volunteers cele­brating Youth Day with us at our centre. Volunteers from Cosmo Christian Centre, ranging in age from 12 to 18 yrs spent 8 hours with us. We divided them into different teams, cooking, gardening, clean­ing the playground and playing with the children. They all did an amazing job keeping the kids occupied and happy all day and serving them a lovely meal. We also had time to conduct a interactive HIV awareness programme with them so that they would understand the nature and devastating impact of HIV in South Africa. Our brief from the youth leaders was to help these teens, who come from privileged backgrounds, understand what it is like to live in a squatter camp so part of the programme was to take groups right into the heart of the squatter camp and do a home visit for one of our support group mem­bers. When they was the conditions she lived in with no electricity, running water or even windows for security reasons – a half blind sick woman enduring terrible conditions – many of them were moved to tears. (We did not take photos of the shack and the lady because we felt it would be intrusive.) The teens went away with a different per­spective on their lives, which has made them feel more appreciative of what they have. We look forward to seeing them again in the not too distant future.

The Family Africa Blanket Drive is going well with blan­kets pouring in.
This week YFM Radio Presenters, staff and friends brought over 100 lovely blankets to distribute to our Free Day Care Centre and our orphan group. Everyone was thrilled.

    hah! The “Goreacle” returns, as an evil devourer of Patagonian Toothfish! Only in America can a clueless youth culture (including the mentally childish peopleing Hollywood)can a fat, failed former Vice President become a hero for creating an imaginary crisis whose “resolution”, as you note, will turn this country into a third world nation.I’d be scared if it wasn’t to freaking funny.

    Som någon påpekade tidigare angående japan.Det är väldigt intressant hur man kallas rasist i Sverige för att man vill att invandrare ska komma till Sverige, och integreras, samtidigt som man i Japan är emot all icke-arbetskraftsinvandring. Jag talar inte om Japan, utan alla länder i världen. Sverige har en ganska låg nivå på vilka man kallar rasister och inte. Väldigt sjukt land.Rasism är ett misshandlat ord i USTICKARSVERIGE.

    You know, I would never even consider getting my cholesterol measured.Like virtually all natural processes, don’t you feel that a population’s distribution of cholesterol levels probably follows a power law? I’ll bet dollars-to-donuts that Corbain , et. al. throw out the outliers – individuals with levels of 500+ with absolutely no indications of Atherosclerosis. Do the right thing on the inputs (i.e. eat right), don’t sweat someone’s decision on what the outputs should look like (i.e. cholesterol and all those other silly levels you fret about).

    You know, it’s sad, but even as one who takes antipsychotics, I had stigma against the meds themselves. I was a psychiatric crisis worker when I started to take them, so that just totally freaked me out, even though I knew they’d help. I waited as long as I could before taking them, but once I thought there were helicopters following me and I had an incident at the store where I thought everyone was watching me, I knew there was no option left.I’m okay about it now, but it was hard as a psych professional to take them.

    a person is presumed innocent and has a right to a trial. There’s not an “unless the client or his or her attorney Knows that they are actually guilty” exception.Some would say that it’s unethical because it wastes judicial resources on a foregone conclusion. To that I say: then hire more judges and build more courtrooms. An attorney should not sacrifice his or her client’s constitutional rights on the altar of the state’s budget.(NB: I’m speaking about US law. I don’t know what the rules are in the UK.)

    I’m in Grand Rapids, MI which is not obviously NY or NJ, but is about 4 1/2 hours from Milwaukee. I’m also movnig in the next 60 days to Madison, WI. I just read the book and am completely blown away. I’m young (22) but am over weight (248lbs 6ft tall) despite daily workouts and trying to cut back on eating. I’m fairly convinced it is all the fast food because I fly for work quite a bit and get stuck eating out a lot. I’m just about to begin my wheat free journey and am more than happy to provide anything in person or via email etc. Cheers Mike
