One Thing for the Week: I'll Just Never Do That
Gareth will never have a sex change, Leigh-Ann will never be a billionaire, and Siya will never have sex with a girl... not that we ever thought he would. The team shares why it's important to create a list of things that you will never do for your own peace of mind.
One Thing for the Week: Thanks Councillor, I'm Full
As one ages, there are two things that must mature: your mind and your palate. This week, try food that's not on your usual menu, food that ‘scares' you. If don't feel so brave - or don't have a stomach made of cement - why not write an e-mail to your ward councillor (or at least tag them on a social media post) about something positive that has happened under their watch.
One Thing for the Week: Family Feud
Call your parents or a relative you haven’t spoken to for a long time and sort out a feud that needs to be put to bed. Everyone has some ongoing feud that is doing them more damage than good. So for this week, call up the cousin you hate and wish them well for the new year. They might keep on being an a******e, but you can start the year with a clear conscience and be the better person. That irritating old relative that nobody in the family likes? Phone them and say hi. Reconnect with an estranged parent. It might be one of the best things you ever do, or it could just be a noble gesture.
Er, that’s it.

Joe also has his say on the price of wedlock... forget money, your mortality may be at stake.
Ted Blom (Independent Energy Analyst)
How deep do the effects of corruption run within Eskom? Who are the people who have led this march to ruin? What does that mean for the ordinary taxpayer? Ted Blom is back to untangle the different 'stages' of what feels like Eskom's inevitable demise. From being a crown jewel in the State's portfolio, Eskom is now a burdensome noose around the neck of all of South Africa's citizenry. How long will it take Eskom to get their act together? Is there light at the end of the tunnel, or is loadshedding part of a 'dark' future for our country?
