For the lovers of superhero movies et more:

DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN,” an 18-episode season with Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio returning, streams on Disney+ in Spring 2024.

Can't wait for this. And apparently there's a rumour going round that Jon Bernthal will return for The Punisher. Just hope Disney doesn't mess this up.

Shocking and disgraceful...[Warning , disturbing photos ]


The Phoenix Forensic Mortuary is now a building filled with the stench of dead bodies lying around, hovering flies and a health hazard for its workers.
The mortuary’s storage capacity is seriously exceeded and strained. Bodies are lying on the floor since there is no storage in the fridges, she said.

“There are still unidentified bodies from last year’s July unrest and this year’s floods.”
Ayanda Zulu

FLIES, STENCH AND NO DISINFECTANTS​

The fly-catchers in the autopsy room are out of order, meaning there are flies hovering the mortuary.
In addition, the mortuary has no cleaning or disinfectant chemicals, resulting in the mortuary reeking of an unbearable stench.
The mortuary has no blades or needles to cut and stitch up bodies, said Zulu.
“There is no PPE – gloves, gowns, masks – issued to the workers in the past three months. Drains are blocked on the other side of the autopsy room for months now,” she said.

Right click anywhere on the page and translate to English. Note, this is an opinion piece, but it's from someone who lives in Germany. Seems SA is the world leader in something eventually. We were the first to have implemented load shedding and Australia, and now it seems possibly Germany, is to follow.

I suppose it's fairly logical - Europe (with the exception of France due to their massive nuclear programme) is heavily dependent on natural gas; remove this and pressure hits the electric utilities.

Not that it makes anything better, but remember the massive brownouts in the USA and New York blackouts in the late 70s and early 80s due to the fragility of their grid in those days - and, of course, Texas last winter.

and the ''fxxk you poor consumer'' trend continues...[and it explains why there is NO chicken at Norwood PnP FOR THE LAST WEEK] suspicious indeed.

South Africans have a love affair with chicken. But higher prices are testing if they can afford it​

As of the beginning of July, the price for a whole frozen chicken has increased 20% year-over-year to about R33,65, according to research by the banking group Absa's Agri Trends: Livestock Report.
And poultry prices will continue to climb, according to the report.
"We expect chicken prices to follow an upward trend over the coming weeks, supported by a weaker exchange rate, sustained high input costs, and firm consumer demand for affordable sources of meat protein," the report says.

Cooking oil price rise​

  • 5 litres of cooking oil cost R228,94 in South Africa in June 2022
  • Certain vegetable cooking oil (except olive oil) is zero-rated, meaning its exempt from value-added tax (VAT)
  • Cooking oil price is the lowest in Cape Town at R222,31
  • Cooking oil cost R229,41 in Durban in July 2022
  • Gauteng had the highest cooking oil price in July 2022 – R239,82

Tensions remained high in Tembisa on Tuesday after riots on Monday that claimed at least four lives and caused extensive damage to infrastructure. A strong contingent from the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Police Department stood against the backdrop of the charred Tembisa Community Civic Centre. Fragments of computer screens, keyboards, printers and other office machinery littered the grounds. ESKOM :
“We have withdrawn services in Tembisa due to the ongoing protests. Services will only resume when it is safe for our employees to work in the area,” said Eskom.
Not only has Eskom withdrawn, but the burning of a substation on Monday has left some areas without power.
The affected areas include parts of Tembisa 1, Clayville, Olifantsfontein, Winnie Mandela and Birch Acres Extensions 23 and 25.
But the City of Ekurhuleni says that they could not be able to repair the damage as the situation in the township remains volatile.
