The abandoned corner plot at Greatmore and York Street is a neverending issue with illegal dumping.

 

It is an ongoing cycle of dumping and more dumping:

 

After big community effort to clean it up, it only took the festive season holidays for it to turn into a dump site again.

 

It is frustrating, as all efforts us neighbours are putting into keeping the abandoned field clean are a sisyphean task.

 

This time City of Cape Town cleaned up the worst of the rubbish, but not the rubble dumping: 

There’s even a brand new shoe! Why is it always only one?

It is however this unsightly dumping that attracts more dumping!

Who does this, dumping their rubble so it’s a problem for everyone. It’s free to drop off waste at the Woodstock Dump down the road!

That’s why access to this abandoned plot must be restricted with a fence. It’s simply not possible otherwise to fight against the flood of waste and dumping.

Since out of control fires seem to be the norm on the abandoned plot at 27 Greatmore Street where we even have arson attacks, I react very worried every time I smell fire around the neighbourhood.

There is a distinct difference between a lovely braai smell and the sting of toxic smoke.

Looking around for the source of the fire, surely enough there is black smoke coming from 27 Greatmore Street.

The sight that presents itself is quite worrysome:

 

This time, the fire is burning into the neighbouring house:

 

 

Yet, it appears no-one cares!

 

 

People in the illegally built hokkie were passed out and it was not possible to wake them up.

 

 

So we called the fire brigade to avoid further spreading of the fire, it is a dry and windy summer in Cape Town after all.

 

 

This is the fourth fire at 27 Greatmore Street.

I cannot stress enough how dangerous a fire hazard illegal housing is, also for the surrounding properties.

Hutch, the biggest out of our pack of dogs, looks easily clumsy, lumbering along, trying to keep up.

But he always amazes me with his love for swimming.

 

In the water, everything that makes Hutch look cloddish on land, works to his advantage.

Instead of being heavy and slow, he is buoyant and strong.

 

No surprise then that Hutch loves the beach.

 

He can’t wait to get into the water and runs straight to the ocean, checking out the waves:

 

I only let our dogs play in the swash.

But Hutch decided otherwise and went for a little swim in the calm sea:

Our rattie gardens came in many different shapes and variations, from tomato surprises to healthy wheatgrass to leftover seeds in a flower pot and now a whole planter box.

 

All I do is chuck what is left over from the rattie food into some soil instead of the bin.

 

A bit of water every now and then and the seeds and grains start growing.

 

The ratties love the fresh greens and enjoy foraging in the soil.

 

It gives them some outdoor playtime in a safe and well known environment.

 

It shows how comfy the ratties feel in their rattie garden when Mia starts to groom herself.

The avast hack check shows you the accounts that have been hacked and had their passwords leaked.

 

As one of your regular internet safety measures you should update your passwords on a regular basis.

 

If you need motivation to do this, quickly check if your password was stolen.

 

Updating all your passwords across all online platforms can be an exhausting task, depending on how active you are in signing up for internet services.

 

So you know which accounts are the most urgent to start with, check which ones have been hacked:

 

Avast Hack Check shows the accounts of which hackers have stolen and leaked your password.

It’s a great way to actually remember some of those accounts that have been dormant for years.

 

Just make sure the new password is indeed secure!

One of the reasons why we fail to stick to our New Year’s resolutions is because we have unrealistic expectations.

 

There are lots of great examples of realistic New Year’s Resolutions. However, they are quite general. If you want to accomplish your New Year’s resolutions, you’ll need to make your own to be specific and personally relevant to you.

 

How to keep your New Year’s Resolutions realistic

 

–  Break your year down quarterly, monthly, weekly

Take your New Year’s resolutions and break them down into the smaller steps it takes each quarter, month, week to achieve them.

 

–  Use a one page yearly calendar as a goal setting template

Use a large one page yearly calendar to jot down your goals over the course of the year, hang it up clearly visible and easily accessible.

 

–  Fill in your goals backwards

Start with the end of the year and your New Year’s resolutions. Work back to the beginning of the year with the necessary actions and complete the timeline.

 

 

Finally! Some Realistic New Year’s Resolutions that are easy to keep. 😉

January 19th 2020 is the day people are most likely to give up on their New Year’s resolutions according to new data insights from Strava, the world’s largest sports participation platform.

 

Quitter’s Day

Last year’s Quitter’s Day was January 17 2019, which is now honored as Ditch New Year’s Resolution Day.

Based on global athlete data from 2019 this year’s Quitter’s Day is January 19 2020.

 

Concluding from this global community data, Strava’s tips for extending the New Year’s resolution past Quitter’s Day include:

–  People keep people active: Find a friend or join a club to help keep you motivated. Cyclists going on group rides cover twice the distance of solo rides. One in three weekend activities in the UK is done with at least one other person.

–  Staying consistent: Athletes aiming for three activities a week instead of two tend to be more consistent, resulting in twice as many activities over the year.

–  Goal setting: Athletes who set goals in January are increasingly likely to remain active as the year goes on, and are still active.

 

So push past Quitter’s Day!

BC x Seattle Humane

We are Bellevue College students partnering with Seattle Humane, an impact non-profit organization, with their mission to find homes for the animals in their shelter that are normally considered "unadoptable." Seattle Humane is unlike any animal shelter. They take in animals no matter the breed, age, or physical condition and hold them for as long as it'll take them to find proper homes for these animals. Their hard work and care is exactly what we need to create a better environment for the animals we love. Please follow our instagram page @bcforhumane for more animals in need of a home.
