Knowledge is understanding that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.



Tomato provides the needed anti-oxidants. These anti-oxidants remove the free radicals which cause diseases like cancer. It also prevents heart attacks due to abundance of vitamin C and E. Tomato also contains lycopene which prevents bad cholesterol in the blood. Lycopene happens to prevent cancer of the mouth pharynx, esophagus, stomach, colon. It also reduces risk of pros-trate and cervical cancer. The presence of vitamin C in tomatoes helps it to fight diseases like asthma. Tomato is known to treat eczema. By drinking tomato juice everyday you can see the difference. To remove dark circles under your eyes make a paste by using 1 tsp tomato juice, 1/2 tsp lemon juice, a pinch of turmeric powder and a pinch of gram flour. Apply this paste under (not in) your eyes and keep it for 10 minutes. You will notice the difference with regular use.

Egypt the top of Africa Egypt retained their MTN Africa Cup of Nations crown in Accra on Sunday when Mohamed Aboutraika lifted the champions to a 1-0 win over Cameroon and a record sixth title. The Indomitable Lions were dominated throughout and, in the 77th minute, a blunder by captain Rigobert Song allowed Pharoah’s Mohamed Zidan to square the ball to Mohamed Aboutrika, who fired home from close range. Aboutrika hit the headlines during the African competition for revealing a T-shirt with “Sympathise with Gaza” emblazoned on it after scoring a goal, and the giant screens relayed live images of crowds of Gazans joining the party. The city of 16 million Egyptians celebrated, joined by hundreds of Palestinians who took to the streets and coffeeshops of Gaza City to join in the celebrations.

Rather than throwing an item out when neither you nor anyone else can make use of it, have it recycled. And while recycling is not perfect – it requires energy and the process of changing something into something else often produces by-products – it is better than sending goods to the landfill or having them incinerated. Find out what types of materials can be recycled in your area. Clean and sort the materials before putting them out on the curb as often collectors will not pick up recycling that is mixed or contains non-recyclables.
