Cape Town weather – Heatwaves expected, on high alert for fires

According to the weather officials the temperatures are set to soar today in Cape Town as the summer weather keeps on coming. Some places in Cape Town as well as outside Cape Town might get temperatures above 40 degrees today.

Usually this time of year is when the big fires start, last year the Cape Town fires that caused the most havoc also started close to the end of February.

Cape Town is now on a high fire alert and as we found out the fire brigade is ready and waiting.

So most of Cape Town will probably be a traffic jam today as most people will be heading to the beaches.

Remember the sunscreen.

Precious star Gabourey Sidibe wins big at NAACP awards

I cannot think of another actress more worthy of receiving the reward for best actress award at the NAACP awards. Gabourey Sidibe is new to the acting scene and went to the audition on a whim not truly believing that she could be a actress. To say she is a big girl is a understatement, Gabourey is a really big girl and not ashamed of it.

The reason this was the best choice is because this had to be one of the hardest roles to play. Gabourey played Precious in the movie Precious : about a abused and neglected sixteen year old girl who is pregnant with her second child, that is the result of abuse/incest, she has HIV and cannot read.

This role takes guts and strength, Gabourey Sidibe real life is a far cry from the role she played. She is a confident young woman who grew up in a loving supporting family both parents in the entertainment business. This is a award truly deserved. Her acceptance speech Gabourey gave a emotional shout out to

all the Precious girls everywhere. This is for you

Precious the movie went on to win 5 more awards (total six) at the 41st National Association for the Advancement of Colored People’s annual Image Awards in Los Angeles. Some of the awards where Best Independent Movie and Best Movie and of course Best Actress. 

The director Lee Daniels, who won Best Director award, made a slip up during the acceptance speech. Much to Gabourney’s embarrassment, making it sound as if he was revealing Gabourey’s weight when in truth he was actually referring to the character Precious’s weight from the book. How it came up, he was describing how difficult it was for him to find a Hollywood studio willing to take on the film.

No-one wanted to see a movie about a 350-pound black girl who is struggling and who has HIV

The success of the film has proved the critics all wrong.

LT Chuck Anthony of Hawaii National guard says dont judge local by looking elsewhere

LT Chuck Anthony of the Hawaii National Guard gave out a great piece of information by saying people should not look any other place to determine how exactly it will be where you are.

Hawaii sports also came to a stand still as most sport games have been cancelled.

Hawaii is preparing for the Tsunami heading that way, it should hit Hawaii within a few hours.

Two hours to be exact, the first waves are expected in Hawaii.

People should also wait for the waves to finish, just because the first few ways are not that big does not mean you can go down and it is safe. Big waves can come last and bring the biggest destruction.
