After a scorching heatwave that still is Cape Town is not a bit cooler. In the past week the Cape experienced temperatures of 40 degrees and up. Vredendal on the border of the Western Cape as well as Clanwilliam reached more than a whopping 44 degrees, that is almost half way boiling point. Closer to Cape Town is Worcester, they experienced 42 degrees this week while the normall cooler areas also experienced heat above 38 degrees.
Thursday the weather gave Capetonians a chance to breath again. While the heat is not entirely gone it remains a bit cooler around the Western Cape today.
Weather experts however predicts heavy rains for February in Cape Town but that remains to be seen.
It was so hot that a nurse in Du Noon passed out from the heat while scared patients and their children apparently sat in a room with no open windows or doors.
A recent study by a Mexican based research group has Capetonians up in arms. The study claims that Johannesburg is safer than Cape Town. There are also other cities included in the research but these results took the cake.
The Mexican Security, Justice and Peace research said Cape town is the 34th most dangerous city in the world. It is not known whether they included Khaylitshia or just the main parts of Cape Town.
The world’s most dangerous city came out as San Pedro Sula in Honduras.
Twitter was abuzz after the results were made public, mostly from Capetonians being upset that Johannesburg rated as safer than Cape Town.

You might of heard about the famous base jumper that “crashed” yesterday into Table Mountain.
Table Mountain National Park was not impressed and said the following:
“He managed to release his emergency chute and we believe he would have died without it,” said Merle Collins, a spokesperson for Table Mountain National Park. She also added that Corliss did not have a permit. “The danger associated with base jumping does not allow us to issue permits. He did not have permission. We will definitely fine him and possibly press charges.”
The company behind the stunt is actually HBO.
He broke both his legs. Here is the video:
The City of Cape Town responded with concern about the new laws of banning cruise liners from the V&A Waterfront and dent tourism might suffer because of ruling. The Department’s Director of Immigration ruled that from now on passengers will not be allowed to dock at the V&A Waterfront but cruise liners must dock at Duncan Dock.
This means that 13 cruise ships that were scheduled to dock at the V&A Waterfront must now dock elsewhere, taking along with it 18000 potential tourists.
“We are obviously uneasy about the possible impact of this ruling on Cape Town’s status and reputation as a cruise tourism destination as well as on tourism revenues to the city. The City notes concerns about security risks underlying the decision. However, we will discuss the ruling with the relevant authorities to find a way to best serve Cape Town’s tourism interests, without compromising the status of the port as a secured area,” said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Events and Marketing, Councillor Grant Pascoe.
So i was over there at my favourite server and it turns out my one small tower is causing an entire server to crash. Apparently this is an issue with the pistons that Notch has not finished yet. They should at least put back gears in the game until this redstone and piston issue is sorted, otherwise what will our inventions run on? Water?

CapeTonians will soon be buying candles and using fires or gas to make food. Eskom recently warned of possible load shedding coming in the next few months. The City of Cape Town was informed that due to the inability of Eskom to meet the high demand for electricity throughout the country that Cape Town will most probably experience load-shedding soon.
According to the Mayor of Cape Town :
The risk of load-shedding has been exacerbated by on-going maintenance works that Eskom has undertaken as it grapples with the task of boosting capacity to supply electricity to avoid sustained power outages.
As the round of load-shedding in 2008 revealed, the process of load-shedding is a difficult one. Sustained power outages would be an inconvenient and adverse disruption of our daily and economic lives, to say nothing of the social impact.
However, as responsible citizens, we can all do our part to either avoid or mitigate the negative impact that load-shedding would have on our country by reducing our use of electricity.
I urge all Capetonians to do everything possible to use electricity prudently during this period to relieve the heavy burden on our power supply so that we can avoid power outages.
Simple acts such as switching off all unused electrical appliances or using alternative energy means will go a long way towards conserving electricity.
Eskom has assured me that they are putting measures in place in an effort to avoid load-shedding.
Meanwhile, our collective acts of compromise as responsible citizens could be the difference between blackouts and keeping the lights on in the next few weeks and beyond.
We must all play our part.
Malls are made for shops, companies and corporations. Malls are not made for people. Think about the old days when people had to grow their own food, hunt for their own food and farm their own food. Think about the reward they got. Hard work and small reward but the reward meant so much more.
This is not the same as working a job you dont like then getting a reward you already knew the outcome of. The excitement of the small reward outweighs the rewards of which of was known before receiving it.
Point is, the reward is not that big when shopping because of the want when walking through a mall. Take this for example.
A guy goes hunting for food, he captures a rabbit. The reward was huge because he only spotted the rabbit, maybe a few other animals but not lines and rows of animals that he really wants. Imagine he walked through a mall, saw 100′s of rows of goats for example, thousands of animals that could be eaten, then at the end he gets the rabbit. The satisfaction will just not be the same.
Be a minimalist shopper this year.
