Monday Morning Edition

Good morning all!

My View

NSRI warns of increased shark activity around Plettenberg Bay.  GRDM puts out rabies and vector awareness information.  

Oakhill’s Aimee Canny to represent SA at swimming.  Gof news from Fancourt and Knysna.

Theresa May is getting it from all sides.  The Pope talks socialism – have to keep in step with the globalists.  One of the miracles of the ‘modern democracy’ – Macron’s approval rate is 25%, yet he is still in power.  CIA pin blame for Kashoggi’s murder on the Crown Prince.  Trump says it’s possible but premature.

Who President Ramaphosa appoints as head of the NPA will give a clear indication as to what extent he controls the ANC.  Looking forward to Pravin Gordhan’s testimony.  Patricia de Lille to round up all the old Independent Democrats.  The ANC in Mpumalanga settle their differences with blades.  What it will take to amend the constitution to allow for the land theft.  Gigaba may find himself back in the principal’s office.  

Interest rate hike a 50/50 things again.  Transnet board members face a massive lawsuit.  Eskom turns to diesel.

Zverev wins season closer.  Rassie on Willie’s yellow card.  Hansen to announce his plans before Christmas.  Banyana beat Nigeria and the Protea women bat Bangladesh – but it’s too little too late.

NSRI Plettenberg Bay and Bitou Municipal authorities are urging public caution to bathers and paddlers along the Plettenberg Bay coastline due to confirmed increase shark activity inshore along the coastline of sharks attracted to and feeding on a juvenile Humpback whale carcass that has washed ashore amongst rocks at Groot Bank, close to Keurboomstrand, off-shore of the Salt River, Groot Bank area, Plettenberg Bay.

Awareness: Rabies

Rabies is a contagious and deadly viral disease, causing damage to the brain and the spinal cord. It affects both humans and animals, and in most cases, results in death once the disease symptoms develop.

Public Awareness: Vector Control

Vector control is an important component of many disease control programmes. It is a cornerstone of very effective campaigns to control vector-borne diseases. For a number of diseases where there is no effective treatment or cure, such as West Nile Virus and Dengue Fever (not endemic to the Garden Route), vector control remains the only way to protect populations.
