To sacrifice; to offer in sacrifice ; To kill or destroy, often by fire.

Where is the Cango caves situated?

Answer: Oudtshoorn

29km from Oudtshoorn, at the head of the picturesque Cango Valley, lies the spectacular underground wonder of the Klein Karoo - the Cango Caves. Situated in a limestone ridge parallel to the well known Swartberg Mountains, you will find the finest dripstone caverns, with their vast halls and towering formations

There are approximately 1,300 known species of scorpion, and they are all venomous. Scorpions have two types of venom: a translucent, weaker venom used to stun and an opaque, more potent venom used to kill heavier threats.

Also did you know It is estimated that there are several million earthquakes in the world each year On average, about 60 earthquakes per year are classified as significant, with 19 classified as major.

How to Fall Asleep Easier at Night

Stop drinking coffee or any caffeinated beverages after mid-afternoon. While some people can drink a pot of coffee and promptly go to bed, others retain the effects of caffeine for up to 16 hours. Have your last cup at lunch and drink decaff after in order to fall asleep easier.

Forget warm milk. If you have trouble falling asleep, opt for herbal tea with a dash of nutmeg, instead. Alternately, swallow a nutmeg capsule with a small healthy snack about one hour before bedtime.

Take a walk after supper or do some gentle exercises for half an hour but avoid exercising within 3 hours of bedtime. Your body needs time to allow the adrenaline to wind down before you fall asleep.

Create a happy story in your head. Remember something you loved as a child, perhaps a favored pet or childhood friend. Imagine a story where you and your pet or friend walk together once again and be the age you were when you had this friend. Make your story totally happy and "feel" the depth of happiness between you.

Make a mental list. It can be a grocery list or a to-do list but imagine yourself writing your list on a piece of paper or a blackboard. Feel your hand as it forms the letters and see your list clearly.

Tell yourself that whatever is keeping you awake won't be solved tonight by worrying. During times of stress, our minds jump into action when our bodies relax. If stress is the cause of not falling asleep, form your problem into a question and repeat the question over and over in your mind, telling yourself that you will dream of a satisfactory answer.

Sit up and force your mind to focus on one thing. Insomniacs complain that their mind jumps from idea to idea, never focusing long enough to make a mental decision.

Get up. the longer you toss and turn, the angrier you will become and sleep will be that much more elusive. Get up and do something. Don't do anything strenuous but check your email and answer your correspondence or watch an old rerun on TV.

Wear soft foam earplugs or get a white noise machine if noises disturb you at night. Some people are frightened to sleep and in that case, a good guard dog on your floor might offer some reassurance that no one will slip up on you, unawares.

An interview with Dermatologist Dr Jean Louw who joined us to dispel some myths of the causes of bad skin also discussed the need to know facts on looking after skin.
We then were joined by Athlone SAPS Inspector Bennett and Lameez De Vos from the Safe Schools programme. Who joined us to speak about their plans on taking action against truancy in schools. To find out more contact them on 0800 45 46 47

Lastly we spoke to Trevor Johnston CEO of Educo Africa. Who joined us and who is safe and sound after he took on a challenge where he for six days straight stayed on the side of a building on a portaledge 2m to 1.5m. This is without a conventional toilet, just a book and dry food. This was to raise R1 million for the On The Edge campaign. To find out more call 021 761 89 39
