TIP OF THE DAY
How to Become Literate
Being literate is not just about knowing how to read - it's about knowing what to read, and how to talk about it when the time comes. Want to know their secrets?

1 Read.
First, read what interests you. Maybe you aren't really into big novels - you find them too unnerving, too much. Instead, why not try magazines at first, or graphic novels? Or pick up a book of short stories - read in small, easy to digest bits at first. But the most important thing you can do is simply commit to reading, even just a little, each day.

2 Progress to more challenging reading.
After a month or two of reading a snippet here or there of this or that, try moving up to things that are a little more challenging. For example, choose a modern classic, like Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (or Philosopher's, depending on where you live). These are not just for children - they are books that have been read and enjoyed by millions of people. If you try one of these and still have trouble committing to the longer length of the read, try Reader's Digest - it offers condensed versions of regular books, along with newsy, chatty articles from lots of different magazines.

3 Find a book group.
Once you've begun reading, you will want to talk over the books you're reading. Lots of people join or form book clubs. It can be simple - call your sister or brother, or a couple of friends. Meet for coffee, and there, agree on a book that you will all read. Meet again a month from that date, and hopefully you will all have finished the book, and can discuss it. Talking over things you've read can really enhance your experience of the book, as you share with friends the feelings the book evoked, or the fun you experienced as the story unfolded. Not only that, but a book club keeps you reading - you know you will be talking about this book in just a few days, so you have a goal in mind as you read.

4 Set personal goals for reading.
Lots of very literate people do what is known as "parallel reading" - or reading several books at the same time. Maybe you will keep one in the bedroom and read for a bit before you sleep each night. Maybe you will keep one in the bathroom and read there for a while, or one in the den, etc. Even if you don't wish to get this crazy, you can still set goals, like, "I want to spend this next year reading classics" or "I will read all of Shakespeare's comedies this year, and next year, maybe I'll tackle the tragedies." Even if you don't achieve the entire goal, you will have still read some of what you set out to read. And that's good. Try setting a time frame within which you want achieve your reading objective.

5 Choose well-known books.
If you enjoy reading offbeat things, that's fine. But if you want to become more literate in the conventional sense, you will want to choose books others have heard of. Ask your librarian to help you. Reading well-known works has two benefits: First, it gives you a common frame of reference for things you may hear from lots of other people, and second, it educates you in ways you may not have thought of.

6 Enjoy reading.
Perhaps your taste runs more to science fiction than to classic literature - there's no shame in that. Or maybe you like more romantic fare. There's plenty to be found in literature. Or maybe you will find that you like English poetry, but are not so crazy about American. Whatever. Anything you read makes you a more literate person. It exposes you to new words, and to ideas from people all around the world, and from different times in our history. Whatever you like to read, there will certainly be plenty of reading material. So you aren't a Shakespeare buff, you're still literate, and you will gain more enjoyment from your choices if you read what you are interested in.

Starter Reading Lists
Here are a couple of reading lists - they're just suggestions to help you begin your adventures:


· For Classic Literature:

As people become overwhelmed by working ever harder to pay for more stuff, frugal living is a hot topic. living below your means make conscious spending decisions to live a full and rich life.
Step 1
Set Up a Budget and audit your own spending habits. Compare your expenses (including debt) with your income. If you're consistently spending more than you earn, it'll be no surprise that you're carrying a larger and larger debt load
Step 2
Make a list of short-, medium- and long-term financial goals. List in detail what you'll have to give up in order to meet each. Give yourself a reasonable period of time to practice your new spending habits in order to see progress.
Step 3
Go through your belongings and gather as much as you can.
Step 4
Favor quality over quantity, and buy the best you can afford. You'll save money in the long run since high-quality items last longer and require less maintenance. This applies to adult clothing, furniture, electronics and cars. On the other hand, buy used quality kids' clothing and toys every chance you get.
Step 5
Use cash as much as possible, and debit cards for household bills and purchases so the money is immediately deducted from a checking account at no interest.

DID YOU KNOW
The use of poison gas in World War I was a major military innovation. The gases ranged from disabling chemicals, such as tear gas and the severe mustard gas, to lethal agents like phosgene. This chemical warfare was a major component of the first global war and first total war of the 20th century. The killing capacity of gas was limited — only 4% of combat deaths were due to gas — however, the proportion of non-fatal casualties was high, and gas remained one of the soldiers' greatest fears. Because it was possible to develop effective countermeasures to gas attacks, it was unlike most other weapons of the period.

TIP OF THE DAY
How to Stop Others From Controlling Your Life
By Alicia Brian, eHow Member
Step 1
Identify first in what ways you feel others are controlling your life. What specifically do you think that they are doing which is taking over or changing what you would normally be doing or experiencing?
Step 2
Recognize that you have more power over your own life than you may already be acknowledging. Unless you are a minor, where you live, who you talk to and how you spend your time is often actually all your own choice.
Step 3
Determine if you really think that another person's actions are making you feel weakened, angry or manipulated.
Step 4
Discuss this matter directly with the person whom you feel has too much control over you. This is often difficult to do, but will generally create a more respectful environment over time if communication is enabled.
Step 5
Stop yourself from rushing into this discussion as if it has to be a confrontation. The manner in which you broach any subject with another individual, especially a topic in which you believe you have been treated in an unfair way, is the foundation upon which the discussion will be sitting.
Step 6
Recognize that the person you will be discussing this with will have their own ideas as to what is occurring and that these ideas may conflict with yours. If you want them to be open-minded to what you are trying to say, you must be willing to give them that same consideration in turn, despite any previous considerations which you may feel have been void when they dealt with you.
Step 7
Analyze whether or not you would feel controlled by this individual if you were comfortable in your own skin. Have you held back from voicing your opinion on a regular, daily basis? Have you been accepting situations in your life without rebuttal that you would have preferred not occur? Have you been completely honest with all of the people around you so that they knew how you felt about certain matters when they made their suggestions?
Step 8
Take a moment to think about whether or not by way of changing your own behaviors and actions in your life, the problem you believe to exist could be corrected. It may be necessary to have the discussion with this individual regardless of all of the details involved, but then continue to focus on your own behaviors and how you can better your life.
Step 9
Consistently remind yourself that all you have to do in this life is live and die. It is very good to consider that this world is a codependent one in which we all have to live and depend upon other life in order to exist and live comfortably. Equally important is to recognize and act upon ways in which we can selflessly help others. If we are keeping all of these things in mind and acknowledging that we actually are in control of our own lives, things will get better for us over time. Open communication can be key to learning and growing for all.

WE ALSO FEATURED:
Reruns of interviews done before focusing on abuse experienced by both males and females. The last interview played focused on healthy family lifestyles.

How to Take Control Of Your Life

By Christen Henderson, eHow Member (http://www.ehow.com/)
Too often we take ourselves for granted. Take control of your life, and start living out your own dreams! We make promises to ourselves we never keep, let yourself down, never follow through, or become a push over - snap out of it!! Show life who's boss by taking control of your life and learn to do what makes you happy!
Step 1
Focus on the good attributes you like about yourself. Stop sweating the small stuff, and be happy with what you have already! Start by making a list of 25 things you like about yourself. Include talents, features, quirks, and achievements. Tape it inside your planner, bathroom mirror, car, or fridge. Read it everyday!
Step 2
Stay away from people who drag you down. That's right. AVOID THEM! You might need to cut a few ties from friends who always tell you what you DIDN'T do, rather than what you DID. Stick with positive people. It's proven that happiness is contagious.
Step 3
Save some money!! Make a goal to save at least 10% of your income. This is after all what taking control is about. To put cash away: Eat out less, shop at discount stores, and don't splurge. This will ensure you getting off to the right start in taking by your life!
Step 4
Live light! Don't take everything too personal. Lighten up a bit. Blaming yourself for things that are not your fault is a major cause of low-self esteem. So the next time you feel the itch to blame yourself - stop, breathe and remember crap happens. Move on!
Step 5
Be positive! Stay away from negative thinking. This means, every time you have a negative thought, toss it aside - make it a point to turn it into a POSITIVE thought. See the good or the funny in something about the situation. You will start to see a big change in the way your thinking.
Step 6
Create time to do what you want. Whether it's your relationships working out, or even reading a book. Make that extra time in your life.
Step 7
Stop caring about what others think!! If you live according to your own values - you will feel more confident and believe in yourself. Doing this will ultimately end up in taking control of what YOU want!

WE ALSO FEATURED:

How to Celebrate Father's Day
(www.ehow.com)
Step 1
Pamper him with whatever cooking ceremonies he enjoys most, whether it's breakfast in bed, a burgers-and-beer lunch at the local sports bar, dinner at his favorite four-star restaurant - or all of the above. (After all, Father's Day comes but once a year.)
Step 2
Avoid the ties, shirts, golf balls and best-selling thrillers. Instead give him something you know he'd love but isn't likely to buy for himself: CD, collection etc

Step 3
Look for clues. If he keeps saying he wishes he'd practiced the piano when his mother told him to, sign him up for lessons. If he reads every issue of "Gourmet" Magazine cover to cover, give him a gift certificate for a cooking.
Step 4
Give him the ultimate gift: your time. Present him with a gift certificate announcing the plan: dinner and a ball game, a day at the beach, a weekend outing to the rugby, a camping trip, or simply an afternoon of side-by-side digging in the garden.
Step 5
Make him a scrapbook commemorating "Life With Father" over the past year. Or go all out and make a scrapbook, or a series of them, covering your whole life together.
Step 6
Honor your father's memory if he's no longer living. Send a donation to his favorite charity, or lend a hand to a cause he cared about etc.

Step 7
Remember, you needn't limit Father's Day to your biological dad. Do something nice for all the father figures in your life, whether grandfathers, stepfathers, uncles, godfathers, big brothers or that first boss who helped you launch your career.

TIP OF THE DAY
How to Clear Your Skin Naturally With Honey
If you suffer from acne, or the occasional blemish you will try everything and anything to make that ugly red pimple disappear. Nature is the best remedy for your healing your acne and tightening pores.

Step 1
Go to your local grocery store and look down the isle that has honey. You will be picking out a honey "face wash". You should read the labels on the honey jars carefully when deciding which one you want to buy. Make sure you buy honey that is 100% pure unfiltered, unprocessed natural honey.

Step 2
Instead of spending tons of money on several different acne medications that contain harsh ingredients like benzyl peroxide, clear your acne naturally with one simple ingredient: Honey. Replace your current acne wash with a jar of unfiltered pure honey.

Step 3
Now its time to wash your face with your new uncooked honey! Take a warm wash cloth and place it over your face. This will allow your pores to open. Make sure your hands are clean, and open your honey jar and take a small quarter size amount out with your fingers. Slowly rub the honey all over your face using circular motions.

Step 4
For better results allow the unfiltered honey to sit on your face like a facial mask for 10 minutes. This allows the honey to seep into your pores and kill bacteria.

Step 5
Wash your face with warm water, and then finally with cool water to close your pores. Repeat steps 3-5 every day for as long as you want clear skin! Please see my resources at the bottom of the page to see how you can get clear skin in 3 days!

GENDER HUB WEDNESDAY
By Denisia Adams
Hello to you and hello to a normal day at work. If you South African you would’ve been celebrating a high significant day, Youth Day.

Today on Gender Hub we focused whether times have change for gays, lesbians, bisexual, intersex etc. Check it out.
WORD(s) OF THE DAY
magnanimous

generous in forgiving an insult or injury; free from petty resentfulness or vindictiveness: to be magnanimous toward one's enemies.

high-minded; noble: a just and magnanimous ruler

SA TRIVIA QUESTION

DID YOU KNOW

TIP OF THE DAY
How to Make Decisions
Step 1
Mark out the parameters of the decision clearly: What choices do you have? Are there more than two?

Step 2
Gather as much information as you can about each alternative - talk to the appropriate people, seek advice from friends and family, and research by reading books and magazine or newspaper articles.

Step 3
Get the experience that will help you make an informed decision. For example, if you're trying to decide whether to become a doctor or not, first volunteer at a hospital or clinic.

Step 4
Jot down a list of pros and cons for each decision. Prioritize which considerations are very important to you, and which are less so.

Step 5
Recognize that there are no right reasons for making a particular decision. The fact that a particular path is important to you, regardless of what others think, legitimizes it.

Step 6
Think honestly about any fears, motives or biases guiding your thinking. Recognize them for what they are.

Step 7
Brainstorm alternatives. Can you synthesize the available alternatives into a compromise that maximizes the pros and minimizes the cons? Look for ways to have your cake and eat it too.

Step 8
Put an end to collecting information about your decision. Avoid thinking that with just a little more time and information, you'll be able to make the one perfect decision. Remember that no decision is perfect and that all choices are made in a condition of some uncertainty.

Step 9
Recognize that you might learn things in hindsight that would have changed your decision had you known about them earlier. This thought is normal, and should not be allowed to stall your decision making.

Step 10
Make the decision.

WE ALSO FEATURED:
An interview with Zayne Imam Vice Chairperson of Rainbow UCT.

TIP OF THE DAY
How to Spend Time With Family

Have a great time, grow a lot closer to your family members and make new memories by scheduling regular family fun nights. Choose convenient times and plan activities that will entertain everyone. Most of all, be enthusiastic about the togetherness.

Step 1
Schedule a regular night for family time, so everyone knows not to set up other dates, appointments or plans with friends during those times. Aim for days that don't typically find any of you working late, studying for tests or attending business or club meetings.

Step 2
Draw up a schedule to determine who will select the next family activity. Assure the family unit that you're rotating the privilege, so nobody grumbles about doing something they're not "into." Generate a list of possible outings, games, crafts or discussion topics to help younger family members choose.

Step 3
Keep it affordable by mixing ideas you can do at home, like a family barbecue or movie night, with more extravagant outings, like taking in a play or spending the day at an amusement park.

Step 4
Encourage "silly" activities that will put everyone at ease, encourage laughter and create memories that you'll talk about years from now. Have a funky fashion show, make pies and hold a pie-eating contest, or do karaoke.

Step 5
Tune out all distractions to concentrate on this time and having fun together. Family game night won't be as much fun for the kids if mom and dad are constantly checking their cell phones or watching a sporting event on television at the same time.

Step 6
Use the time to grow closer as a family. Insist that everyone leaves disagreements or outside stress at the door. If two of the kids begin to bicker during the activity, distract them or tell them to table the argument until the evening is over. Discuss their favorite parts of the evening the next day to encourage sharing.

WE ALSO FEATURED:
Poet, Lewis Watling who joined us to speak his life as a poet. Lewis was born in England in 1919. We also briefly spoke about his recent launch of his collection of poems, “Not More of the Same”.

TIP OF THE DAY
How to Be Polite to Annoying Family Members

Spending time with family can be a joy. But for some people, it is a death sentence to spend time with annoying family members. Here are some steps to help you be polite when spending time with annoying family members.


Step 1
Greet annoying family members with an affectionate hello, a hug or kiss. If you ignore them the rest of the day, at least they will remember your first encounter.


Step 2
Show kindness. If you see your family members in need, offer to help them. This could be as simple as offering a glass of water or helping with dinner. By showing kindness, you soften their attitude and diffuse any potential arguments.


Step 3
Make the first move. Don't always wait for annoying family members to come talk to you. If you talk to them first, then you retain some control over the conversation. This is better than being caught off guard later.


Step 4
Be mindful of your body language and non-verbal actions. Frowning or rolling your eyes will send the message that you do not respect them.


Step 5
Listen to what your family members have to say. You may have heard the same story about Aunt Edna's bunion many times before, but you are being polite just by listening.


Step 6
Speak appropriately. Use respectful words such as yes ma'am and no sir, avoiding foul language or slang terms.


WE ALSO FEATURED:
An interview with Gary Naidoo from Gama Productions about their efforts to keep kids from using performance enhancing drugs for sports. He said that prevention was the best step to stopping this problem, since most of the kids today who will become professional athletes have grown up seeing athletes on TV using these drugs. They have produced a play and public service announcement to warn children about these dangerous substances.


We then spoke to Lungileo Makhaza from the City of Cape Town. He joined us online to speak an event run by the City Of Cape Town at the Voorbrug Hall in Delft. The event will be building on Community protection week also highlighting children’s rights issues at community level.

GENDER HUB WEDNESDAY
By Denisia Adams

Good day to all you beautiful people. Yes as you can tell I got it ALL this morning and by that I mean I woke up on the right side of the bed and I had breakfast.

Today on our Gender Hub Show our topic we (the morning cruise team) focused on was/is a subject that bugs bother men and women alike, HEALTH – OUR BODIES – FAT!!! Check it out:


WORD(s) OF THE DAY
sybarite \SIB-uh-ryt\

TIP OF THE DAY
How to Easily Save Money On The Food You Eat

Step 1
Always eat breakfast in your own home. Get up 15 minutes earlier and you can have a healthy and inexpensive breakfast. For adults, include the coffee so you will avoid the temptation of that overly-priced cup on the way to work.Put on the coffee the night before and invest in a thermos cup to take to work.Make your own lunch. Plan for this when you shop so you will have a variety of ingredients and no excuses.

Step 2
Cut out the soft drinks. This is not just an economy move but also a move towards better health for your whole family. If you MUST have a canned drink to survive, bring it from home. Bulk buying saves.

Drink water

Eat fresh fruit. Buy what is in season.

Buy what is on sale. When you shop, have a list but be ready to make changes if for example the chicken is not on sale but the ground beef is.Learn to turn your back on temptation. That means not listening to the pleas of your children for extra treats or snacks when shopping.

Have the weeks meals well planned so you know exactly what and how you are cooking.Eat your dessert apple on the way home or as you cook to avoid the hunger pangs which can lead to impulse buying of junk food meals. Give fruit to hungry whining children. There is no harm in having dessert first if it is a nourishing dessert.

Step 3
If you must eat out, consider having an afternoon drink before you leave home. This will be a fraction of the cost of a restaurant drink.Come home for your coffee and even your dessert. These are big ticket items in restaurants.

Step 4
If you really want to save, eat vegetarian meals when out. They are healthy and much more economical.Remember that lunch menus vary little and are less expensive than dinner menus. Take your friends and co-workers out to lunch instead of dinner if at all possible.Before you go out to a restaurant, inquire about their charges. Then you will not be in for any unpleasant surprises when you are presented with the menu.
Step 5
Junk food is bad for your health and generally over-priced so avoid it for yourself and for your children. Do make sure that you treat yourself occasionally. Food is one of life's greatest pleasures.

WE ALSO FEATURED:
Philip du Toit – Personal Trainer from Bella Rosa Lifestyle in Durbanville (021- 914 92 85). He (and others) joined us to discuss our gender hub topic being Men, Women and our bodies. It’s the one subject men and women fixate about, "I’m too fat", "I’m too thin". Philip spoke about our fitness and it is true generally men do lose weight quicker than women due to testosterone and muscle content. Also he mentioned that lots of women have this idea that working out with weights makes them bigger and won’t lose the fat. It’s officially a myth. Basically men and women are different in obvious places but generally fitness/health is pretty much the same or least the way we should go about it.

One of the most difficult things for men and women to do is to DI-E-T. We then spoke to dietician Claire McMahon who says that men and women have to do the same thing really. We need to avoid quick-fixes and ridiculous eating plans ones that don’t include any carbohydrates or meats, especially ones that starve you or in some men cases ones that have to much of everything. Protein and moderation is very important when trying to lose weight or just maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Basically when trying to lose weight or trying to become healthy it’s a lifestyle change something that has to be worked on daily. Most importantly there are NO QUICK FIXES and also accept your build. For men and women, if you’re designed to look a certain way, don’t force it otherwise.

Lastly we were joined by Debbie Nash the Clinical Director for Montrose Manor. She joined us to speak about eating disorders. This includes being obsessed with image and weight. She went on to say that eating disorders is seen as the psychosocial illness of the century. She also responded to some of the comments made by the everyday person on the street about eating disorders.

***The message here is we need to accept who we are outside and inside. Which does not mean accepting our ugly habits and unhealthy lifestyles. It is time for good change but be patient with yourself, our "systems" work differently so don’t focus on others and just love yourself. ***

WE ALSO FEATURED:

Patrick Solomon from Molo Songololo, Children’s Rights Centre. He joined us to discuss a very disturbing fact about how Western Cape teenagers are selling their brothers and sisters to theirs friends for group sex sessions. Even parents are turning a blind eye and selling kids for sex to family, neighbours and strangers. What’s more, all they get out of it is as little as a packet of chips (crisp), depending on what the need be. It ranges from drugs, alcohol and even to contribute to the household income. It’s also said to occurring more so during holidays when parents are not around. To find out more about this study you can contact Molo Songololo on 021 448 54 21.

We then played a feature done by one of Bush Radio’s news interns about safety in malls.

Lastly we were joined by Dr John Steer a Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon. We discussed how dangerous our excessive use of mp3/4 players or by simple listening to music on our cellphones at louder than recommended volume is extremely damaging to our hearing. 1.2 hours of daily listening is the maximum, full volume listening should never exceed five minutes a day. This could mean that at the age of 30 one could have the hearing ability of a 80 year old. So if you’ve noticed kids are increasingly reluctant to listen to grown ups or parents this could might as well be because they almost deaf. Dr Steer mentioned one could even lose their hearing in a split second of intense sound. If a shotgun goes off next to your ear, in that split second you lose your hearing.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

ART – C FRIDAY
By Denisia Adams

Hay it’s the weekend, already? Actually, I’ve been waiting for the weekend it’s been a long week. So I’m just going to have a good time. Enough of my diary entry for the day lets check out what happened on today’s show:

WORD(s) OF THE DAY

2. Tending to cause sleepiness or drowsiness.

S.A TRIVIA QUESTION

TIP OF THE DAY
4 Ways to Stop Overeating
1. Keep a log of absolutely everything you eat from the moment you get up to the moment you go to bed.Don't forget to log what you drink as well. Sometimes, just seeing everything on paper is enough to make you realize how much you are eating. Talk with your doctor or nutritionist to see how many calories you really need, and then compare the two. Chances are, you're probably consuming more calories than you thought.

2. Start using smaller plates.
Even if it's only for your meal and not the rest of your family's, studies have shown that smaller plates really do help when it comes to weight loss. Eat only what is on that plate and avoid going back for seconds. You'll get that mental feeling of having cleared your plate, but it will be with much less food than you normally get. If you have difficulty with portion control, this technique can really make the difference.

3. Get a food scale.
It's tough to know how big a portion should be and having a food scale around really makes it easier. Chances are, what you thought was one serving is probably closer to two. It can seem a little frustrating and quite a bit crazy at first to weigh everything you eat, but after the first week or so it will become old hat.

4. Allow yourself your favorite foods, but cut back on their size.
In some cases, overeating is triggered by the feeling of being deprived. Instead of quitting all of your favorite foods cold turkey, allow yourself to eat them, but in much smaller quantities. If this is still a problem, try replacing these foods with similar versions that are lower in calories. There are new snacks that are packaged into 100 calories packs that are very similar to popular desserts and these can really help in this situation.
