Jane Goodall: The inspirational true story of one woman who moved the world

Ramon Thomas meets Jane Goodall at TEDGlobal in Tanzania, 2007In 2007 I was fortunate to meet Jane Goodall at the TEDGlobal Conference in Arusha, Tanzania. So seeing this premier information I immediately shared it with friends. Free fundraising premier for South Africa

By advancing our awareness of – and fighting for the preservation of chimpanzees, this remarkable woman has given humans a greater understanding – not only of primates, but of ourselves.

The Jane Goodall Institute of South Africa and Ster-Kinekor Theatres will be hosting a premiere of the uplifting documentary on Dr Jane Jane Goodall, “Jane’s Journey,” on February 8 2011 at Cinema Nouveau Rosebank.

Tickets to the premiere are free although guests will be required to make a donation of any value to The Jane Goodall Institute on entry to the premiere. Guests also have the opportunity participate in an auction of JGI rescue photo sets and memorabilia. Bookings for the premiere can be made through TicketLine on 082 16789 and are on a first come first served basis.

It was more than 20 years ago, that Dr. Jane Goodall, now 75, decided to give up her career as a primatologist, as well as her private life, in order to devote all her energy to saving our endangered planet.

How Indians do arranged marriage in 21st century

Rajpat (the father): Son, I want you to marry a girl of my choice.

Son: “I will choose my own bride!!!”

Rajpat: “But the girl is Bill Gates’s daughter..”

Son: “Well, in that case… Ok”

Next Rajpat approaches Bill Gates.

Rajpat: “I have a husband for your daughter….”

Bill Gates: “But my daughter is too young to marry!!!!!”

Rajpat: “But this young man is a vice-president of the World Bank.”

Bill Gates: “Ah, in that case… Ok”

Finally Rajpat goes to see the president of the World Bank.

Rajpat: “I have a young man to be recommended as a vice-president..”

President: “But I already have more vice- presidents than I need!”

Rajpat: “But this young man is Bill Gates’s son-in-law.”

President: “Ah, in that case… Ok”

And that my friend, is how Indians do business.


Queensland Flood – Appeal to Youtube

My friend Anthony Larter sent me this on email. Even though I’ve never been to Australia I’m posting this message because over 100,000 people have been affected by these floods. South African weather bureau has also predicted floods in different parts of South Africa. Someone on Twitter recently mentioned 2010 was the hottest and wettest year in the history of the world – it’s probably better to say since weather patterns have been recorded in the last few 100 years or so. So many South Africans live in Australia, I’m sure some of them are affected.

My friend, Ryan created this video last night as an appeal to YouTube to donate all the revenue earned by the advertisements they force us to watch when opening a YouTube video. Since there are hundreds of videos arriving on YT from the Queensland floods, we thought that we’d appeal to them to donate all the money to the Premier Flood Appeal account. We’re hoping that by sending this video around to everybody
we know (even if they don’t live in Australia or are affected) so that we can get as many views as possible, so they take notice.

Please help out our Australian friends by forwarding this link to everyone you know.

Dronk katoliek sit in biegkas (confession).

Seuntjie van drie vra sy ouma:
“Ouma, is jy van karton gemaak?”
Ouma lag lekker en sê: “Haai nee my skat, hoekom vra jy dan nou vir Ouma so?”
Seuntjie antwoord: “Want Pappa sê altyd Ouma is ‘n regte ou doos.”

Geduld is ‘n stadige manier om jou moer heeltemal te strip
