Gambling in Malls

Gambling in Malls

Guest : Mike

Should Electronic Bingo Terminals (EBT's) better known as slot machines be allowed in
shopping malls? That debate has been playing out in the High Court since 2005 since
the KZN Gaming and Betting Board granted licences for operators to install more than
600 slot machines in malls across that province. Various groups ranging from People's
Forum against EBT's to Casino tycoons are vehemently opposed to this move claiming
that by being placed in malls they would be targeting the most vulnerable members of
society and that by being in malls problem gamblers would find it hard to avaid.

Guest : Genevieve Chisholm

It was a little after midnight. Genevieve Chisholm rubbed her eyes and headed out to
check on the rescued horse. He was severely malnourished. Feeding him meant waking
up every two hours just so that he could keep up his strength. But saving animals is
what Chisholm does. She has 1 260 animals in her care – and the number doesn’t stop
growing.
At Flag Animal Farm, a rescue centre in Durban, creatures from tiny hamsters to
abandoned rabbits are left on Chisholm’s doorstep every day. Often, they’re from
people who no longer want their pets or who’ve neglected them. “We have saved just
over 14 and a half thousand lives,” Chisholm says. Her on-site vet attends to every
animal when they arrive. For any wild creature that comes to the farm, Chisholm works
closely with the Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife to release them. As much as she
can, she chooses not to send a rescue away. “I don’t believe in rehoming,” Chisholm says.
“An animal at Flag Farm is safe for the rest of their lives.”
Despite the large number of creatures under Chisholm’s care, she gives each one a
name and an equal amount of love. “The animals that come here all become part of my
family,” she says. With blind ponies, a three-legged cat, and more than a hundred
bunnies among the cows and goats, she’s created a haven for every type of animal.
“Where there’s breath, there’s hope,” Chisholm says. “And we will fight until the last
breath.”

Blood Shortage

16 January 2020 8:36 PM

Guest : Michelle Vermeulen

The Western Cape Blood Service needs your help, they only have enough stock to last 4
days & are in urgent need of
O- and B+ blood groups. The festive season has put some strain on supplies as regular
donors take a break during the festive season and with folks going back to work blood
donation has taken a back seat. 

FIXED DONATION SITES
N1 City Mall-Blue Route Mall and 9 Long Street.

Caring for your folks who didn't plan

15 January 2020 9:53 PM

Guest : Hardi Swart| Director of Autus Private Clients

A very interesting article in this weeks Sunday Times on How to support ageing parents
who didn't plan for their retirement. Most people have a retirement plan for the old
age, pension, investments & maybe a bit of cash stuffed in a mattress but what to do if
your parents were not savers & only have a Social Grant to provide for their retirement?

NO RELIGION IN SCHOOLS: BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR

15 January 2020 9:33 PM

Guest : Lisa Joshua Sonn

It is my context that teaching religion at school has also been a way to facilitate
behaviour. A set of rules that keeps children respectful of a higher being, an authority
figure with inexplicable powers, fearful of a God who can see everything you do, though
S/He is invisible and a God who can punish you or reward you according to your actions,
which then ensured compliance and obedience.
The Ten Commandments are simple enough to keep children and adults on the straight
and narrow in the world. The powerful and frightening vision of Moses presented with
those two tablets remain in my mind’s eye, there was a burning bush, Moses had a thick
grey cassock, a long beard and wild hair. Quickly as a child I embraced those
commandments as the real deal!
