"Gautrain construction devastating Gauteng Gummi bear communities "

Posted by on | | 0 comments
"JOHANNESBURG. They're dashing and daring, courageous and caring, faithful and friendly with stories to share, but hundreds of Gummi bears have already been pulped by tunneling machinery under Johannesburg. According to conservationists, the Gautrain will wipe out Gauteng's population of the magical bouncing bears "far more quickly than Duke Igthorn could ever have imagined".

Construction workers on various Gautrain tunneling sites say they are finding fewer and fewer traces of the magical bears.

"It used to be that we'd see them once every couple of weeks," said mechanic Josiah Mphundu.

"We'd break through some rock, and we would see these bears, bouncing here and there and everywhere.

"But not any more."


Conservationist Eric Monkey-Chandler said that efforts to save the remaining bears had been hampered by a lack of knowledge about the secretive animals.

"Magic and mystery are part of their history," he said. "

I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to blog this... but I got it! And it's totally changed the way I work. I guess any upgrade from what I had would have helped make me a little more organised, get a little more connected, be a little more stylish. But this is more than I'd hoped. The iPhone has completed my little tech circle - it completes me :D

To give you an example, I'm currently sitting in front of the fire at work (it's bitterly cold in Jozi today) listening to Flo Rida's "Low" which I just downloaded via a peer-to-peer app, updating my twitter and facebook status, syncing my calendars, busy loading new episodes of Big Bang Theory and Paddington Bear, MSNing people in the office where its too cold to go and trying to set up my mail sync once and for all - all over wifi on my phone.

For someone like me who loves getting the most out of a piece of tech and constantly discovering new things it can do, this thing is amazing. Customizable, upgradable, and pretty to look at.

This is my iPhone and it's name is "Nutmeg".

...I'm really looking forward to Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. It's by the same director of Pan's Labyrinth, and while I don't think the story will be anywhere near as poetic or touching, it is full of those familiar fantastical creatures. And I'm a sucker for fantastical creatures.

If you've seen Pan's Labyrinth you'll especially recognise the creature with eyes in all the wrong places. The trailer is great, and apple offers three of them at a really hi quality - a pleasure to watch.

Yay for little creatures with funny eyes that fly!
