SA TRIVIA QUESTION
What town in the Northern Cape is the gateway to Namibia. It’s also known as the town of Diamonds, Copper and Spring flowers?
A – Colesberg B – Springbok C – Kimberley
Answer: B – Springbok
History of Springbok
In 1684 Nama and Khoisan people arrived at the Castle in the Cape of Good Hope to sell their bangles and bracelets. Simon van der Stel believed they come from the Monomatapa of Africa, and started expeditions to the most western corner of the Northern Cape Province. Today this area is called The Garden of the Gods and is famous for the wondrous display of spring flowers that explode into bloom every August and September.
Copper was discovered on the farm Melkboschkuil in 1850. In 1852 the farm was bought from Long Kowie Cloete by the mining company Phillips and King, which later become known as Cape Copper Company. The mine became the first commercial mine in South Africa, but was worked out by 1888. Springbok was build around the copper mining industry.
DID YOU KNOW (http://www.didyouknow.org/)
In a small Chinese study, researchers found that children who drank milk fortified with probiotics—beneficial bacteria found in the intestinal tract of healthy humans—during the winter and spring had less colds, needed less antibiotics, and missed fewer school days than children who had plain milk. Not only did the children who received probiotics remain healthier during the course of the study than those who did not, but those who received a combination of two strains of bacteria in their milk rather than just a single one had the fewest fevers, coughs, and runny noses overall and recovered from illnesses the fastest.
