Upfront – July 2012
Recently I find myself getting worked up a lot quicker than usual. Even the smallest thing, such as a car refusing to give me a gap in traffic, or bad service, seems to set me off. And I’ve noticed that most people around me react in the same way … tempers flare, words are exchanged and, in the end, the only thing we actually achieve is raising our blood pressure. To find out why we seem to be such an angry nation, turn to page 48.
This month, I’ve made a conscious decision to calm down and take inspiration from our cover star, the epitome of serenity and forgiveness, Nelson Mandela. Read all about
his life and work on page 18.
We celebrate Madiba’s birthday with a feature on the 67 Minutes campaign, a worthy cause started to honour our former president’s 67 years serving his country. See what SA celebs are doing with their time or read about a few local charities where you can do your bit (page 23).
An exciting addition to Club is its food section. We’ll be featuring yummy dishes every month and we decided to start with recipes from Madiba’s personal chef’s new cookbook. Fire up the oven and turn to page 52.
