An interview with recovering drug addict and drug awareness activist, Steve Hamilton. He joined me in the studio this morning discussing the truth about drugs according to Steve, “Drugs Are Cool – But They’ll Kill You.” Steve has been touring South Africa and neighbouring countries for the last twenty years with his road show for schools and presentations for Teachers, Parents and Corporate companies. We also discussed his book published in 2002, I Want My Life Back available at Exclusive books as well as his great concern for the youth. Steve engages with the youth/adolescents regularly especially whilst on tour and Steve says the youth/kids have forgotten to dream, to really dream. So why is this? Is it the Broken Window theory? This means for instance if you continue to remind people they stay in the “Cape Flats” (not known for it’s wonderful scenery if you know what I mean) you give them the impression that that’s their worth. For a better explanation
http://www.helium.com/items/1398654-evaluating-broken-windows-theory-of-crime Steve also has a powerful message about drugs which goes, “if you want to know what a drug addict looks like, look in the mirror.” Never say NEVER ME. To be in contact with Steve contact 072 197 3357 or email: onesecondchange@gmail.com

DID YOU KNOW FACTS
Today Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel was born. Gabrielle was a pioneering French fashion designer whose modernist philosophy, menswear-inspired fashions, and pursuit of expensive simplicity made her arguably the most important figure in the history of 20th-century fashion. She was the only person in the field to be named on TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
Her stylish, elegant designs revolutionized fashion during the 1910s, freeing women from the uncomfortable and stiff apparel worn at the end of the 19th century. Whether by chance or by design, Chanel furthered her own image: the woman of the 20th century, embodying independence, success, personality, style, and confidence. Coco made sure women would love her products.

Dr Vaughn Stannard from an organisation named Beautiful Gate in Crossroads Cape Town. Dr Stannard says the primary focus of the organisation is to protect children, children who have been abandoned, orphaned and run aways. The organisation also focuses on reuniting these children with their lost families which is followed by counselling. Dr Stannard mentioned how heartbreaking the process is families sometimes are unwilling to accept the children, they’re unprepared or finically incapable. Lots of these kids are HIV positive which causes them to be marginalised from their families and their communities. There is obviously a big need for a change in community members attitudes for it’s not only the neglect and abandonment for the childrens parents or families it’s the neglect of their communities.

An inquest into the death of Brit Frederick Edwards in 1933 found 200 nails, 36 staples and 3 penknives in his stomach. But he didn’t even have half the appetite of Frenchman Michel Lotito, whose stage name was “Mr Eat All.” Michel ate 18 bicycles, 15 shopping carts, 7 TV sets, a computer, numerous razor blades and, believe it or not, one Cessna 150 light aircraft. The aircraft meal was not fast food, though; it took him two years, 1978 – 1980, to munch through the delight. He finished the shopping cart in four-and-a-half days.

COMMUNITY BUZZ THURSDAY

SA TRIVIA QUESTION
Which town, named after the wife of a colonial administrator, was besieged by the Boers during the South African war?

A – Ladysmith B – Paarl C – Darling
Answer: A – Ladysmith

HOW TO:
“ The 5 love Languages”
Words of Affirmation Actions don’t always speak louder than words. If this is your love language, unsolicited compliments mean the world to you. Hearing the words, “I love you,” are important—hearing the reasons behind that love sends your spirits skyward. Insults can leave you shattered and are not easily forgotten. Quality Time In the vernacular of quality time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there—with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby—makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful.
Receiving Gifts Don’t mistake this love language for materialism; the receiver of gifts thrives on the love, thoughtfulness, and effort behind the gift. If you speak this language, the perfect gift or gesture shows that you are known, you are cared for, and you are prized above whatever was sacrificed to bring the gift to you. A missed birthday, anniversary, or a hasty, thoughtless gift would be disastrous—so would the absence of everyday gestures.
Acts of Service Can vacuuming the floors really be an expression of love? Absolutely! Anything you do to ease the burden of responsibilities weighing on an “Acts of Service” person will speak volumes. The words he or she most want to hear: “Let me do that for you.” Laziness, broken commitments, and making more work for them tell speakers of this language their feelings don’t matter.
Physical Touch This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive.

On Monday afternoon 9 August (National Women’s Day) the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra presents a special peace concert in commemoration of the atomic bomb that was dropped on the Japanese city of Nagasaki on 9 August, 1945 - the last major act of World War II. An estimated 73 000 people died instantly as a result of the bomb, with another 74 000 injured. Several hundred thousand died or suffered serious disease afterwards due to the fallout and radiation sickness.
The year 2010 also marks 100 years of official relations between Japan and South Africa: Japan was one of the first countries to formalise ties with the Union of South Africa when it was founded in 1910.
The soloist for this historical concert is Hanneli Rupert, the well-known lieder recitalist and one of South Africa’s leading mezzo-sopranos, who was also the soloist for the première of Schnittke’s Nagasaki. The choir is the New Apostolic Church Choir.
