Hi and good jolly day to you. Today on the Morning Cruise saw Community Buzz Thursday. Check it out:

Something taken as food; a meal

What was the name of the very first newspaper in South Africa?

A – the voice B – the Star C – the Cape Gazette and African Advertiser

C – the Cape Gazette and African Advertiser

The history of the South African newspaper industry is a colourful one dating back to the early 1800's. The first newspaper, the Cape Town Gazette and African Advertiser, was published in the Cape Colony in English and Dutch. It was, however, little more than a mouth piece for the government of that time and it was only in 1829 that the principle of press freedom was established in South Africa.

Warm weather and changes in atmospheric pressure may trigger headaches and migraines. In a recent study, researchers found that with every 5° C increase in temperature, the risk of severe headaches jumps by nearly 8 percent. Also did you know over the last 40 years food production actually increased faster than population.

How to Avoid Junk Food at Work – by Richard Ferri

We all fall victim to eating junk food at work; virtually no one is immune. We all fall victim to eating junk food at work; virtually no one is immune.

Manage your junk food intake or let it ruin your health. The choice is really yours! Totally avoiding eating any junk food is only for those of us with Superman-like strength and willpower. Sadly, if we totally abstain we may end up overeating and consuming way more junk food then we would have had in the first place. So at the beginning of the day, allocate a predetermined amount of junk food you will allow yourself. (Some days you may not feel like having any and cheer yourself on!)

Do not make a big deal or announce your plan to avoid/limit junk food. You will be setting yourself up for peer pressure, office jokes and endless monitoring by your coworkers of what you eat. You are doing this for YOU.

Look at your body in the mirror totally naked (I know this is hard for some of us, but is really essential). First list what you LIKE about your body and then what you feel needs improvement. Don't be shy--this list is for your eyes only. Write down the truth.

There are plenty of eHow articles on nutrition, building muscle and working out. Read them if you need to refresh your knowledge base. Determine what your goals and nutrition needs are and fit in a "junk food allowance." Remember, just because you give yourself permission to have some junk food, there are simply going to be days you will not want or crave any. Rejoice privately!

Keep a stash of healthy snacks in your office. Before you go get that cup of coffee or take a bathroom break, eat some raisins or other healthy snacks before finding the junk food glaring up at you.

Write down your junk food intake each day and the reason why you felt compelled to eat it. Sometimes it is as simple as the person who brought the cake is an excellent baker and you knew it would be wonderful! Other times, and most often, it will be stress, boredom or peer pressure. Now you have to figure out how to handle these differently.

Most importantly: don't beat yourself up if you had a bad day and ate a lot more junk food then you anticipated. It is "progress, not perfection" that should be your goal.

Lastly we spoke to Chris Osbourne from the Ethel’s Place Youth Care Centre. It’s a youth intervention programme helping empower the youth of Mitchell’s Plain.

Magic Johnson:
If the community is happy, then they support your business and if your business is doing well, then you can give back even more to the community.
