At the Novalis Ubuntu Women’s Day Event, I heard that there ‘is
no Superman. We are who we’ve been waiting for.’ Challenging
and inspiring words for challenging and exciting times. As I reflect
on the events of recent weeks, August has been dominated by
two major events: the elections and the Olympics. The changing
political landscape sets us continued challenges to build a more
just society and to redress wrongs of the past and of the present.
Our Olympic athletes inspire us with their tenacity, dedication and
courage, especially those who have overcome immense odds to
achieve success. Congrats to our medallists and all competitors.
Do you want to make a positive environmental change? Maybe you
can help Greenpop plant trees during Arbor Month in September.

Would you like to know how to relieve your own muscle discomfort or
to help others? Ross Emmett’s EMM-Tech (Easy Muscle Management
Technique) is a fast and effective way to relieve muscle pain and
discomfort, increase flexibility and stabilise balance either as self
help or to assist partners and friends. Capetonians from all walks of
life can learn this technique here in October.
