DESIGNER GEAR

I once had to design a Zimbabwe Jail Survivors Outfit, which I did with some success, and now I am in the process of designing a Zimbabwe ZESA Survivors Outfit.

Now ZESA, to our external friends, is the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority, which should have its name changed to ZENSA, Zimbabwe Electricity Non Supply Authority.

We have become relatively fond of our power shortages over the years - time for the family to play scrabble, eat by candlelight, spend hours buying diesel to run the generator, and spend hours looking for gas to run the gas stove.

But these last few weeks have been exceptionally trying as we have power cuts daily, for seven to eight hours at a stretch sometimes rice in 24 hours !!

And to cap it all, we are conditioned creatures, if they give us a schedule of the outages, we can make a happy little plan to deal with the daily grind of washing, bathing and cooking,, but when they are really mean they cut the supply on our "free" days, and that makes us rabid.

Now there is no point in complaining as most of us are in the same boat, so I set out to design a ZESA Survivors Outfit.

With the current heatwave we have been experiencing, the nights are horrendous, no fan means no moving air, grumpy insomniac people and worst of all it means mosquit s galore !!

Despite getting up at the crack of dawn and flinging open each and every door and window, to cool the house down, by 6 pm its still as hot as hades inside. The only solution is adjourn the pool or the shower, and if you are lucky enough to have a pool, the cool night air beckons deliciously, but we all know that out there lurks a zillion blood thirsty mosis !!

And so back to my Designer Outfit.

It comprises a mosquito net ring suspended with an alice band on top of the head. Artfully draped and secured with the sheerest and most voluminous mosquito netting to the floor, subtle holes for the arms, and a headlamp fixed to a headband inside the net.

One would rather resemble a gargantuan Caspar-the- friendly-ghost and it would frighten off any erstwhile robbers too.

It d s tend to get rather heavy in the pool and when wet d s tangle up against ones legs, but it keeps the bugs at bay and allows one to waft around on the cool lawn without mosi molestation occurring.

Make sure its capacious enough to drape over a small chair so you can sit down comfortably and play bridge or scrabble on the computer while the battery lasts. When the computer battery dies, make sure you have a phone with a few games on it, and then when all else fails, allow your arms to emerges from the arm sockets and play chess with a handy husband, having of course sprayed said arms with "peaceful sleep."

Now when all avenues of entertainment have been exhausted, the ZESA Survivors Outfit, wet still from your pool wallow, can be used to drape over you in bed. It has a two fold effect. Firstly it will deter the little beasties, and secondly it will keep you cool till the welcome coolth comes at 3.00 am by which time the Little Man in the Power Station may have woken up and switched your power supply back on again !!

Now this is all very tongue in cheek and I feel desperately sorry for the Zimbabweans who do not have pools, generators, inverters and the like to make life worth living. I feel too for the Mums and Dads trying to get homework done in the dark, getting school clothing washed and ironed is no mean task, and of course, I feel the most for the sick and elderly who have to deal with all this nonsense ....... in the dark.

BULAWAYO MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY
54 OLD GWANDA RD FOURWINDS. 09 246887, 0774096081

It has been a great first half year for us at BMAA. JUDO, It was a honour earlier this year, to be asked by the national team coaches; Debbie Jeans and Pat Warren, to assist in the teams preparation prior to the ALL AFRICA GAMES. It was also the launching of a new era in Zimbabwean Judo. Thanks to help from Debbie and Pat, we have now established a Matabeleland Judo Team, and with Dusty Smith as our captain, we are all looking forward to December when we will travel to Harare, where the two teams will meet, fight and train together for the first time. My personal short term goal is to put a Matabeleland player on the national squad. Currently the team covers five weight categories, and we are looking to cover the others, so anyone who has ever done Judo or would like to learn is more than welcome at the Academy.

BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU, (BJJ)
With a Judo fight team solidly in place, we are now looking to it as a breeding ground for the first; Zimbabwean, Brazilian jiu-jitsu team, to compete in South Africa next year. Please do not get the local forms of Jiu-jitsu mixed up with BJJ, this is an internationally recognised fighting sport and at this time can only be taught in the correct manner at BMAA.

BOXING,
The Thursday Boxing is going from strength to strength, and we are currently waiting to hear from Patrick, the director of Zimbabwean Armature Boxing to see if we can offer anything to that particularly strong national team.

WOMANS SELF DEFENCE
With one rolling class on a Saturday and eight private classes, this has become one of our more popular sessions. with a view to working against three types of predator, the ladies learn to protect themselves using a system of techniques tried and tested around the world. From an instructor who has worked closely with both the Metropolitan Police (UK) and the Royal Ulster Constabulary and their 'Anti rape crisis' programs. LADIES; BE PREPARED, DONT BE THE VICTIM
KRAV MAGA Another very popular lesson, using this practical problem solving system to go from; 'Standing still, too Extreme violence', this is a great way to stay fit and confident. This is another exclusive to BMAA as we have the only official instructor in the county.

Thursday 17 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
It's all for one and one for all as the Musketeers - D'Artagnan (Michael York), Athos (Oliver Reed), Aramis (Richard Chamberlain) and Porthos (Frank Finlay) - band together to defeat the machinations of Cardinal Richlieu (Charlton Heston) and Milady de Winter (Faye Dunaway). Raquel Welsh, Geraldine Chaplin, Spike Milligan, Christopher Lee and Simon Ward are among the other well-known names in the all-star line-up. "Delightful tongue-in-cheek version of Dumas classic, mixing swashbuckling adventure and romance with broad slapstick. One of Raquel Welch's finest hours" - Maltin's Film Guide. Admission: $3.00 [free to Film Subscribers]
BRUCKNER: TE DEUM / MAHLER: SYMPHONY NO.8
Friday 18 November at 7.00 p.m. in the Robert Sibson Hall N.B. CHANGE OF DATE! Mahler's vast choral symphony is conducted by Leonard Bernstein is preceded by Bruckner's heaven-storming Te Deum, a work particularly dear to Mahler. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]
THE FOUR MUSKETEERS
Thursday 24 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m. The Musketeers' adventures continue in the "second half of Director Richard Lester's irreverent but amusing approach to Dumas with less emphasis on slapstick this time round and a surprisingly dark conclusion. Rich cast in top form" - Maltin again! Admission: $3.00 [free to Film Subscribers]

GOUNOD: FAUST
Friday 25 November in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m. - with supper interval. This ever-popular opera comes in a Royal Opera House production conducted by Antonio Pappano with the husband and wife team of Angela Gheorghiu and Roberto Alagna as Marguerite and Faust, and Bryn Terfel as Mephistopheles. 'Terfel sings with panache and Gheorghiu... is capable of encompassing both the lyricism of the love scenes and the horror of her subsequent descent into insanity. The real revelation, however, is Alagna, who gives the performance of a lifetime..." - The Guardian. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

BULAWAYO FLORAL GROUP

The next meeting of the Bulawayo Floral Group will be our Christmas get-together and our final meeting for 2011. This will be held on Wednesday 7th December 2011 at 2.30pm in the hall at the Church of Ascension, Hillside.

ZIMBABWEANS PLEASE JOIN THE ZIMBABWE DISAPORA VOTE CAMPAIGN

It is high time the Zimbabwe Diaspora arose and declared that enough is enough. The diaspora has been the lifeline of the country for many years through remittances, it is about time that the diaspora had a say in how the country is governed. Many of us have stood aside and waited for sanity to prevail, but that hope has proved an illusive fallacy. Einstein once defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. If the Zimbabwe diaspora d s not stand up to be counted, then it has itself to blame for the continued decay of its homeland. One of the initiatives that the Zimbabwe Diaspora Vote Campaign is undertaking is a petition which when completed will be presented to the Zimbabwean Parliament, to the Constitutional COPAC, theUnited Nations, SADC, AU and EU. Do you bit.

To sign the petition Go Here or to http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/zimbabwe-diaspora- vote-now-support-the-zdvc.html

We need about US $ 500 to enable us to do this. Any extra monies raised is used in the following months to buy little extras for the residents ie: meat and personal toiletries.

MTHOMBOTHEMBA (m-tom-bo-tem-ma) PRIMARY SCHOOL

This school, situated 26km out on the Bulawayo / Hope Fountain Road caters for approximately 350 children of which 82% are orphans.

Recently connected to ZESA, the school is appealing for two or three computers - one for the office and others for the classroom so that the children can discover the wonder world of the computer.

On the 23rd November, the school will be holding a Cultural Day Celebration and assistance in way of food, dress, dance display etc would be most gratefully accepted in order to make this day a spectacular event. Your assistance in anyway, will enrich the lives of these marginalised children and will be very much appreciated

ZIMBABWE NATIONAL BALLET DISASTER

'The Zimbabwe National Ballet Centre was destroyed on Sunday 30th October after the roof caved in leaving the building unsafe and unusable. The Dance Trust of Zimbabwe announced that the collapse of the centre, which was built 35 years ago and has housed and trained the national dancing community for decades, is a national disaster and throws doubt over the future of dance in Zimbabwe. All dancers, teachers, parents and friends of dance were devastated by the news as it leaked out. Fortunately the centre was not in use at the time and there were no casualties.

The National Ballet centre, situated on East Road, Harare (behind Reps Theatre) has staged many shows over the years including its annual dance festival Starlight Dancing. It is also registered as a Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) examination centre and its facilities are used daily by many of Zimbabwe's top dance studios and dancers including the Tumbuka Contemporary Dance Company, The Dance Foundation Course, The Outreach Project and the National Ballet dancers themselves.

INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND:
The National Ballet was formed approximately fifty years ago by teachers and lovers of ballet. It was, and still is, run by a committee of volunteers. The name "National Ballet" was chosen because, at that time, it was possible for the company to tour nation wide. The National Ballet was registered as a Welfare Organization in 1978. The original members of the National Ballet were dancers, teachers or persons, who were interested in furthering the cause and course of ballet in Zimbabwe. Affiliated to the National Ballet were "The Friends of the Ballet", who assisted to raise a large proportion of the funds required to buy the land and build the Centre.

ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE NATIONAL BALLET:
Formation of the Classical Company Raising sufficient funds to buy the plot of land on which the Ballet Centre stands Raising sufficient funds to build the Ballet Centre, which comprises two studios, two office buildings, staff quarters and two containers, which store costumes, props etc. Paying for the building in total Extending the present office Staging performances of classical and other ballet seasons sometimes with international professional dancers as principal artistes Staging productions of "Starlight Dancing" and "Stars of Tomorrow", which provide all dancers with the opportunity to perform on a stage in front of an audience. Promoting dance through tours to other cities in Zimbabwe, films, workshops, lectures Sourcing funds and starting the Outreach Programme in 1984 as "Vano vano tamba'" - the children who dance. Sourcing funds to start Dance Training Courses, which gave young underprivileged Zimbabweans the chance to gain employment in the field of Dance Gaining international recognition for the Dance Training Courses held at the Ballet Centre in Harare and other Dance Training Courses. Forming the first professional dance company in Zimbabwe - the Tumbuka Contemporary Dance Company using suitable graduates of the first Dance Training Course - thus providing employment for young Zimbabweans Sourcing more funding to enable the Outreach Project to be expanded using graduates of the first Dance Training Course Collaborating with the Tumbuka Contemporary Dance Company to stage productions Collaborating with the Oslo National College of Art Department of Ballet and Dance to the benefit of some of the pupils of the Dance Training Courses

Collaborating with The Repertory Theatre to their and National Ballet's benefit. Chairman of The Dance Trust of Zimbabwe, Tereza Carter, said that "Rebuilding the National Ballet Centre is critical to ensure that all gains over the past 35 years are not jeopardised. Dance in Zimbabwe must continue and it is important that the National Ballet Centre remains the hub of that national project.'

We are appealing to well wishers, friends of Dance and the Corporate World to assist in our appeal for funds to rebuild the National Ballet Centre. Donations to the fund no matter how small would be most sincerely appreciated.

Alliance Fran aise de Bulawayo

DELF DALF DIPLOMAS Registration now open!

The Alliances francaises in Zimbabwe (Bulawayo and Harare) will have a new session of DELF and DALF diplomas from Monday 28th of November to Friday 2nd of December 2011. For more information or to register, please contact us on (09) 250 245 or on afbyo@yoafrica.com.

DELF (Dipl me d' tudes en Langue Fran aise) and DALF (Dipl me Approfondi de Langue Fran aise) are official qualifications issued by the French Ministry of Education to certify French language proficiency of foreign students. DELF & DALF are both modern diplomas designed to assess the communicative skills of candidates in real situations, using authentic documents. Composed of independent units the DELF and the DALF evaluate language know-how where spoken French is the main area of focus. DELF Diplomas have been adopted by more then 154 nations. These diplomas are designed for anybody willing to give a value to his/her capability in French language, be it for personal or professional purposes, regardless of the studying strategy (intensive, extensive or self training) Some of the highlights of DELF Diplomas are :
International Recognition : Diplomas awarded by the French Ministry of Education and accepted worldwide including the government of Quebec in Canada. Exams are held world-wide conducted under the supervision of the French Embassy of respective countries at accredited official examination centers. The DELF-DALF structure is modeled on the Common European framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), which serves as an international reference in the organization of language teaching and certification. Candidates having earned the DALF are exempted from language entrance examinations in French universities. Candidates having earned the DELF / DALF diplomas earn extra points for migration to countries like Canada etc and their chances of employment at host country increases manifold compared to those who do not possess them.
Types of Diplomas : There are 6 types of Diplomas that make up DELF and DALF which are completely independent. It means that the candidates can register for the examination of their choice, according to their level. The diplomas are classified as under : The DELF A1 and A2 diploma certifies that the holder has basic competency in French and is able to communicate in normal everyday situations. The DELF B1 and B2 diplomas certifies that the holder has an autonomous knowledge of French and Francophone civilization and is able to analyze a text orally and in writing. The DALF C1 and C2 diplomas guarantees that the holder has an extensive knowledge of the French language and has mastered advanced levels of expression in selected areas such as Economics and Law, Social Sciences, Health and Life Sciences, and Sciences.

WARM HEART UGLY FACE

Do you remember queuing in the bank every day to draw your allowance that would buy half a loaf of bread ?
Do you remember when our husbands would go off and "play golf" on Friday lunchtime just in case the police came to throw them into the cells for the weekend ?
Do you remember staring at rows and rows of empty shelves and wondering what you were going to feed the family ?

What short memories we all have .....

Well thankfully Jerome Gardner has documented those crazy days and now his book " Warm Heart Ugly Face" is available. The story of a traumatic decade of hyperinflation and its debilitating consequences for the people of Zimbabwe.

WRIGHTS NURSERY NEWS LETTER 1/11/11

We have had our first rains and hail, (60 mm in Hillside) but the season only really gets going from mid -Nov. The initial rains will bring relief to all the shallow rooted plants but more deep rooted plants, like roses and your fruit trees, will need a deeper soaking. October appears to have been a record for the heat and has been the hottest since 1962. November looks like it is trying to better that!

WHAT TO DO IN NOVEMBER

November is the last month for getting you garden ready before Christmas. Any thing you plant now will still have time to grow out and look good for the holidays. Dead head all you flowers. Once a plant starts to set seed it has completed its mission. By deadheading weekly you will extend your flowering season dramatically. Lift your winter bulbs and let them dry off before storing them away for the summer. Check your power lines and see if you have any branches touching them. See if you can cut them back or if you think you cannot cope call Zesa. Slugs and snails will be out in full force with the rains and they are voracious after a long winter. They can be very destructive in your garden and need to be controlled before they start breeding the next generation. Weed you beds and lawns whilst they are still small and manageable. Feed your roses on a monthly basis. ( 50 - 100 gms per bush depending on size) You should be carrying out a monthly rose insecticide spraying and a monthly fungicide spraying at this stage. Feed your pot plants monthly for the rest of summer. One teaspoon for a 6' size pot and a tablespoon + for bigger pots If your orchids are over their flowering you can look at cleaning them up, cleaning out the back bulbs and re-potting them. Whilst you can still remember which areas had too much sun in October think about planting a new tree for more shade in the future.
ECO/ENVIRO
I have had many folk ask about pests and disease in their garden this month so I wanted to give you all some simple guidelines to work with.
I have been trying a number of herbal and eco-friendly insecticide options over the years and I must admit that I have been disappointed in the results. Until I find some effective options to give you I want to tell you what I do to balance the environment with effective control. I first look at the problem. Once I have assessed the problem I look for the most environmentally friendly control option. . Lady Birds can control a small infestation of aphids A bad infestation of scale needs a stronger remedy. If I can get away with Jeyes fluid or soapy water I will do so. Usually I look to see which of the Green label chemicals will do the job. If a Green label cannot do it I will see what Orange labels will work. Occasionally I go to a Red label in the case of a bad infestation. Once a year or so I might need to use a Purple label chemical. All the chemicals need to be handled correctly, use the correct dosage, spray only the problem areas and spray at dusk so you do not kill friendly species. Because the volumes needed are usually small try buying a disposable syringe to measure out those difficult 2- 5 ml doses Used responsibly I have no problem using commercial pesticides.
BUSY LIZZIES ARE BACK!
From mid November we will have Busy Lizzies back for sale. The stock is a new variety that is not as susceptible to the virulent virus that killed off most Busy Lizzies in Southern Africa a few years ago. The producers have however recommended that you follow a simple spray routine to keep the plants healthy. Every 2 weeks do a drench of PHOSGUARD or PHOSPHITE at the rate of 2 mls per litre. Water in as you would do usually do routinely, to ensure the soil is all soaked. If you notice that any plants are starting to look sick and are keeling over you then need to spray a curative remedy like RIDOMIL. Hopefully there will not be much of a disease challenge, as most gardens have not had Busy Lizzies in them for many years.
WHAT TO PLANT

WHATS HAPPENING IN THE NURSERY
The Zonk I Zizwe site continues to flourish despite the heat. We are getting in weekly deliveries from Harare and there are many new varieties of plants now available. There is a great selection of roses which include quarter and half standard roses, climbers, mini roses and a wide range of HT and cluster (floribunda) roses. We also have a new selection of Alstromereas, a wide range of fruit trees including a new Turkish edible fig. We have managed to get a selection of well-grown Litchee trees from Mozambique. We will also be putting out potted Xmas trees. These are approximately 1.2 mts tall.
