dstv box office

VFW Action. It’s said that with age comes wisdom, but for the US war veterans in this film it’s a refusal to suffer fools. A group of old-timers (including Stephen Lang and William Sadler) get together at a bar for Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). When a young woman (Sierra McCormick) runs into the bar with a bag of drugs, a gang leader (Travis Hammer) sends his minions to get it back, but unfortunately for him he didn’t take the tough oldsters into account. This is an entertaining throwback to the low-budget action films of the ’70s and ’80s. It’s in the same vein as Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse movies, but it’s even more old-school skop, skiet en donder with chainsaws, axes and even monster trucks being used. Half the fun is trying…

A martyr is someone who’s tortured, persecuted and killed because of their religious or political beliefs. They’re revered and honoured by others who share their beliefs because they’re willing to get hurt, suffer and die rather than renounce (give up) their beliefs. The word martyr can also be used negatively. If someone plays the victim, in other words pretends to suffer or repeatedly points out their suffering to get attention and sympathy, one might say to them, “Don’t be such a martyr.” In this case, it’s not a compliment!…

make your own rock candy

SUGAR crystals are a great treat for a sweet tooth – plus making them also provides for a fun science experiment. And all you need is a few simple ingredients and a bit of patience. WHAT ARE CRYSTALS? Crystals are solid substances that form from molecules (particles so small that you can’t see them with the naked eye) which are arranged in exact and repeating patterns. Crystals most commonly form from a solution when liquids cool and start to harden. The loose solid molecules group in a repeating and uniform pattern which results in crystal formation. STEP 1 Pour different colours food colouring (and flavouring, if using) into the glasses. You only need a few drops of colouring, but make the solution as dark as possible for the best results. STEP 2 Let an adult help…

elon musk and a pig called gertrude

HE’S famous for his aerospace enterprise SpaceX and his electric-car company Tesla, and now Elon Musk is shaking things up again with his new venture, Neuralink. The South African-born entrepreneur hopes to help people with spinal-cord injuries or conditions such as dementia and Parkinson’s to move and communicate by implanting computer chips in their brains. At the moment the groundbreaking technology is still being tested on pigs – and that’s where Gertrude comes in. Elon introduced the pig to the world during an online media conference. He said researchers implanted the Neuralink device in her brain three months ago. The Neuralink is a type of microchip, the size of a coin, which is connected to the brain with tiny wires – thinner than a human hair. The microchip sends signals to a computer screen…
