1 Nail them! Ankesh Madan, Stephen Gray, Tasso Von Windheim, and Tyler Confrey-Maloney, four students from North Carolina State University who have invented a nail varnish that changes colour on contact with date rape drugs like Rohypnol, Xanax and GHB when dipped in a drink. The group calls themselves Undercover Colors. I think it’s a brilliant invention – though many feminist groups are refusing to endorse it on the grounds that (as Katie Russell from Rape Crisis England & Wales put it) ‘ …it implies that it’s the woman’s fault and assumes responsibility on her behalf, and detracts from the real issues that arise from sexual violence…’ Of course – but I see no problem with doing everything we can to stop the use of date rape drugs. ‘We hope this…

winning letter A plate for a plate I read in your December issue about JAM SA, and the people who go hungry. The contribution they suggest that we make is R30 a month or R360 a year. And then it hit me! That’s less than what we spent at dinner on our last evening in Cape Town, and less than what we spend on dinner in Montreal. So, I’ve challenged myself to ‘add a plate for Ubuntu.’ For every restaurant meal or takeout, or at Christmas celebrations I’ll take the value of my plate and put it in a piggy bank. The day I started, I added C$12 for brunch. The next day I raised C$10 from each of the friends who came to my usual tea gathering for meditation and toning.…

My son Alex was born with two clubfeet – both his feet were turned over and inwards, pointing towards each other. It was a shock. Back then, in 2003, they performed corrective surgery on the baby at just a few months old. I was against that, so I started researching online and found an article on the Ponseti method, which involves gentle manipulation of the foot and minimal, non-invasive surgery. A link led me to Dr Ponseti’s website. I knew I’d found my answer. At the time, there were no doctors in South Africa trained in this method, so we went to the US to meet Dr Ponseti. The casting method was so gentle that Alex fell asleep! The entire process took 16 days. We were the first South Africans Dr…
