Peeing in public will cost you R40 000 in Durban

Entertainment March 8, 2016

There’s a new law (by-law) in town, if you are ever caught peeing in public and you happen to be in durban, you’ll be fined a hefty R40000, or face two years imprisonment, the new law is set to come into effect this coming friday.

The New by-law’s Chapter 7 reads:

“Any person who is convicted of an offence under this by-law is be liable to a fine of an amount not exceeding R40 000 or to imprisonment for a period not exceeding 2 years, or to both such fine and imprisonment,”

“In the case of a continuing offence, an additional fine of an amount not exceeding R200 or imprisonment for a period not exceeding 10 days, for each day on which such offence continues or both such fine and imprisonment, will be imposed.”

It also be determined by offense committed.

“Abusive, threatening or foul language or gestures will not be tolerated in public spaces. Neither will fighting, urinating or defecating in public.”

“The public will not be allowed to bath or wash in public unless it is part of a religious or cultural ceremony and permission has been sought. Any member of the public caught spitting, performing any sexual act, appearing in the nude or exposing genitalia will also face prosecution.”

It is reported that the aim of the new law is to regulate, control behaviour which might cause discomfort, annoyance or inconvenience the public – the aim is to prevent all of this from happening.

Although there are a lot of doubts from especially from Cheryl Johnson, of Save our Berea, who doesn’t think this will be enforced.

“But how are they going to police it? We have a spike of crime on the Berea. Nearly 20 Durban High School pupils have been mugged while walking to school since the beginning of the year. We have muggings in our parks on a regular basis. We can’t walk along our streets in safety,”

It gets even tougher.

“Consumption of liquor, being drunk in public, gambling and the use of drugs is forbidden. The public may also not lie down or sleep on any bench, street or sidewalk in a manner that prevents other people from using it. Begging for money or goods with gestures and words is also banned.”

Report coverage.

Finding your soulmate makes you age faster

Entertainment February 24, 2016

Ageing

Now before you get mad at me, and before I get into medical terms – This has been proven to be right by you, your phrases, and how you carry yourself when you find ‘The One’.

You often hear people say.

  • I want to find the one and settle down

People define setting down differently that what settling down really is. Once you find the one – you send the message to your body that you are now done! You’ve find the one and you won’t be looking for anything further more than what I have.

You body then sends the messages to the brain that ‘hey guys, you can now knock him dead!’ – which is why sometimes love don’t work out because we have a thing about “”Settling down” when in fact it is that time when you find the one that you should be working even hard to keep ’em.

  • I want to grow old with you

Ever seen a 25 year old who looks like he’s been in world war I ? That’s because when we think we have found the one, we think that where life stops and quite frankly that when it begins.

Remember every change comes with a new beginning and never the end.

BEING IN LOVE

The danger comes in, when you stop caring about yourself and focus entirely on what you have. Find the balance. People in love – newly love birds wouldn’t understand this, because in their minds, all they think about is “Who cares” Well young man and young lady – you are a human being, and being is part of what we do, it is only when we stop being, that we start to age – and fast.

The idea is not to instill fear – the idea is to let you know that all we want to see is you looking your age.

When you find the one, never send wrong messages to your brain and your body, you should know what settling down really means, it means a start of a new beginning, a Grade higher, to start working extra hard.

STARTING A FAMILY 

Even when you have little brats running around calling mommy! Daddy! It’s gonna be hard to focus on yourself. People often say – once you have kids it’s no longer about you – everything is about them – and often the phrase is misinterpreted.

  • Love your kids
  • Save money for your kids
  • Make sure they eat health and drink water
  • Make sure they are clothed
  • They go school and pass their Grades
  • and believe me there’s more

But you lose a sight of the person in a mirror – that’s when you stop being – and it will affect you and just you.

 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LOSE SIGHT OF THE PERSON IN THE MIRROR

 

  • You put on weight (You eat unhealthy)
  • Your sex life decreases and gets to zero action
  • You begin to blame your kids
  • You might lose your husband or the father of your kids if you not married
  • You’ll begin to lose interest in life
  • You stop being…

 

But it all begins with a hello, Nice food, I like you, Hugs, Kisses and be mine forever. Never settle down, settle up, Look your age, Do your Age, Be your Age just don’t Age.

Zack! 🙂

Chrissy Teigen & Emily Ratajkowski Have A Sexy-Off

Entertainment April 30, 2015

Both girls look absolutely ah-mazing as they celebrated the launch of Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 with Chrissy’s husband John Legend last night. Model Chrissy, 29, was wearing a pair of *very* saucy hot pants.

Wear it dry, and you’ve got your standard dusting of color—classic and predictable (in a good way). But wet! Wearing it wet opens a whole new world of opportunity. “What you’re doing is bringing out the pigmented nature of the shadow,” makeup artist Vincent Oquendo says. “Whenever I wet an eye shadow, it’s when I really want it to pop—but it really has to be a special kind of product to be able to blend after it sets. Because a lot of the times when it sets, you get streaking.” Nobody wants that. In order to avoid any wet shadow mishaps, follow these guidelines:

Product

First, go with the obvious: any eye shadow labeled wet-to-dry. The Nars Dual-Intensity line is the standout—the singles come in 12 different shimmery shades, and there’s a corresponding brush (then there’s the newly released Dual Intensity Blush line, which was all over Fashion Week—but that’s a product for another post). Burberry also makes a few very versatile shades specifically for this in their Wet & Dry Silk Shadows. And the technique-specific eye shadow category isn’t just a ploy to get you to buy more product. “You can’t just use any eye shadow for this,” Vincent says. “Certain ones will harden up on top and become unusable because they’re not made for this.”

Baked shadows are also fair game—we’re fans of Laura Mercier’s Baked Eye Colour Wet/Dry and Lorac’s Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in particular.

For more advanced players, Vincent suggests moving on to straight pigment (MAC or even OCC’s Pure Cosmetic Pigments). With the added moisture, they’ll become easier to layer with other products. For a look with more depth, try using a cream shadow as a based before swiping with a wet powder shadow. “It’s like insurance,” Vincent says. “You’re doubling your wearability.

Brush
This all depends on exactly what you want to do. “Mind the resistance,” Vincent says, particularly if you’re looking for uniform color across the lid. “I tend to recommend a blender brush, which is the brush that looks like a feather duster. If you do it with a stiff brush, you’re defeating yourself before you even start. The joy of a wet-to-dry is you have to get it right amount of product loaded up, and then it blends itself. If the brush is too stiff, it will leave the shadow streaky and then much harder to control.”

However, if tightlining or waterlining is in the cards, a much thinner brush is required accordingly.

Liquid
Do not, repeat, do not put eye drops, water, or any other sort of liquid directly on your eye shadow. This’ll screw up your product for later use. “Lately, I’ve been wetting the brush with the Glossier Soothing Face Mist, but Evian Mineral Water Spray is good for sensitive eyes,” Vincent says. If the top of your powder does get a little hardened by wet application, there’s a trick to remove it: Get a clean mascara spoolie and “exfoliate” your compact, Vincent recommends. This won’t crack the compact and will make it ready to go once more.
