World AIDS Day – Save Sex rather then Safe sex

I was sitting with the Jamiat the other day and one of the issues we discussed was the Aids epidemic. The one issue I raised in the meeting was: Shouldn’t we make it compulsory for couples to get tested for AIDS before Nikah?
In an Indian […]

AA travel tips

  • on’t keep your gaze focused at a single distance as this will increase eye fatigue
  • Glance about frequently and take in areas at the edge of the area lit by your headlights
  • Reduce your speed at night
  • Following distances should be increased at night
  • Headlights should be dipped well before an approaching vehicle is within range of the main beam
  • Headlights need to be adjusted periodically
  • In addition, increased road accidents over the years at Van Reenen’s pass on the N3 has highlighted the risks associated with negotiating mountain passes; with the increased traffic volumes this holiday season, the AA urges motorists to be aware of the risks when negotiating these mountain passes.

    The AA and BP have highlighted that being aware of the risks mountain passes pose can reduce the accident rate and have listed the following ways in which this can be done:

  • Be aware of reduced visibility
  • Be aware of loose debris caused by rock slides
  • Reduce speed because there are sharp corners and it takes longer to stop on loose surfaces or steep gradients
  • Apply brakes in a straight line before entering a bend
  • Mist and fog is often present so keep your headlights on at all times
  • Ensure your car is roadworthy and your tyres are in good conditio

How to grow DHANIA Coriander (Coriandrum)

If planning to grow Coriandrum outdoors from the off it is best to sow out the seed every two weeks at a depth of 1cm from the last frost of spring until the autumn. Coriander likes to grow in an area of that has plenty of sunlight, and prefers a rich soil of pH 6 to 7. If you plan to grow seedlings of coriander indoors then they should be grown in peat pots and prepared about 6 to 7 weeks before you plan to put them out, from early spring onwards. Alternatively you can grow them indoors all year around.

Harvesting Coriander

Both the leaves and seeds of coriander can be used in cooking. Coriander seeds should be harvested by covering the stalks in a paper bag, tape the bottom of it, and allow the coriander seed to set. When ready simply snip the stem and remove the bag, and rub the fruit to release the coriander seeds. If you are harvesting the leaves then simply snip them off when require and use fresh.

  4. In the remaining oil, add remaining ginger, garlic and crushed red chilli and fry for a minute. Add the salt and spring onions. Stir fry for a minute. Add 1-1/2 cups water and bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp. cornflour to 1/4 cup water and dissolve well. Gradually add to the gravy and stir continuously till it resumes boiling. Boil till the gravy becomes transparent.
  5. Add florettes and soya sauce. Boil for two more minutes and remove.
  6. Serve hot with noodles or rice.
  7. Variations:

Johannesburg: GHD Salon Styler & StraightenersGood hair day (also known as ‘GHD’) The irons use ceramic technology on their heating plates, which is the reason for the golden, rather than silver, appearance of the plates. The technology involves using ceramic on the blades rather than traditional metal which reduces the frizzing and damaging impacts on the hair caused by the severe heat. Regardless, GHD does offer several hair care treatments as well as a variety of other such products to counteract the heating effects of their straighteners.
