Australian scientists believe kangaroos may hold the key to developing an effective treatment that will prevent skin cancer. Researchers are investigating a DNA repair enzyme found in kangaroos as well as many other organisms that is able to repair DNA damage linked to many skin cancers. They hope that by using this enzyme as a model, they will be able to develop a "dream cream" or other treatment that can repair ultraviolet damage done to human skin by sun exposure.
TIP OF THE DAY
How to Overcome Serious Regrets
There is no such thing as a life without any regrets. However, regrets can become either burdens that interfere with your present happiness and restrict your future, or motivation to move forward. If you find yourself overcome by regrets, here are some steps that should help you integrate them.
1. Determine what your regret really is. Do you regret something you did or something you didn't do? Something someone else did or did not do? A circumstance beyond your control? It is important to step back from the feelings of regret and identify exactly what the regret is.
2. Ask for forgiveness and make amends. Apologize for any harm you may have caused others, it does not kill to ask for forgiveness so give it a go! Forgive yourself. Forgiving others will make you happier. Be compassionate toward everyone involved including yourself.
3. Accept the circumstances. Avoid blaming others but rather take responsibility for anything that you could have better handled.
4. Deal with toxic relationships. Sometimes other people cause us to do things that leave us with serious regrets. Do you have a toxic relationship that needs to be addressed or severed?
5. Grieve for your regrets. When we feel regret, we re-live guilt, sadness or anger over and over again. Allowing yourself to experience these feelings fully with the intention of moving forward can help you stop revisiting them.
6. Recognize what you have learned or gained. When you find yourself thinking of the regret, turn your thoughts to the things you have learned and the opportunities that are now yours - even if they are not what you would have preferred. There is always a lesson even in pain and sadness. Look for the lesson and focus on it instead of what might have been.
7. Write out a plan or agreement for yourself that identifies how you could avoid having this sort of regret in the future.
Zane Imam and Asanda Fanti. Zane is from an organisation called rainbow UCT (www.rainbowuct.org.za) and Asanda from the Triangle project (www.triangle.org.za) both based in Cape Town. They joined me to discuss society’s sentiments towards gays and lesbians in 2009. I wanted to know whether attitudes have changed, are people well informed or not and especially since there are still hate crimes against lesbians in South Africa. Fortunately both Zane and Asanda noticed that people are more accepting, not 100% but there is a change. For both Zane and Asanda their biggest challenge is getting their family to accept their sexuality they come from strict religious and traditional backgrounds which in most cases renders a problem. However they both want all gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders to love who they are despite the difficulties and not deny their own freedom and right to life.
