The Western Cape - famed for its winelands, mountains and beaches - has been experiencing severe water shortages which have worsened in the last year because of a drought in the region. "I shower briefly‚ once every three days‚ and for the rest wash in the hand basin. I used to wash my hair every day‚ but now only when I shower‚ with visibly negative consequences," Ms Zille wrote in a column. "However‚ I regard oily hair in a drought to be as much of a status symbol as a dusty car." Still, Ms Zille, the founder of South Africa's opposition Democratic Alliance (DA), has shocked many with the revelations of her showering schedule. Ms Zille is no stranger to controversy. She caused a storm recently after posting a tweet in which she suggested there were some positive aspects of colonialism . Of course, for some South Africans, sacrificing your shower time might seem to be a middle-class problem. Those living in Cape Town's informal settlements have to rely on a communal tap for water and bath out of a basin, while low-income households would usually have running water in the house and a bath. This latest statement, however, has some thinking that her take on water preservation is admirable. So how did we end up knowing about the hygiene habits of one of South Africa's best-known politicians?
A Look At Speedy Systems In
Often they are made from high-end leathers that scratch or stain easily, so wearers have to be careful about how they handle the bag. Senreve cofounders Coral Chung and Wendy Wen, whose former careers involved stints at VC and consulting firms, were the very women who loved their swish sacks, but often carried a cheaper, more practical option when they traveled or went to a meeting. With Senreve , they’ve launched a collection of made-in-Italy leather bags priced between $495 and $895 that are designed to appeal to the discerning high-end traveler. The brand’s direct-to-consumer approach means that the bags are a tad cheaper than products of similar quality from other luxury brands. The Maestra by Senreve. [Photo: courtesy of Senreve] I tested Senreve’s hero bag, the Maestra , made from a sturdy Italian leather with a suede interior. I opted for the light blue “ice” color and found that after rigorous use–and a minor incident involving a sticky-fingered toddler–the 13 X 10-inch bag was no worse for the wear. The genius of the Maestra is that it can be carried in four different configurations–backpack, cross-body, shoulder bag, and satchel–that all look good.

Some Emerging Opportunities In Common-sense Plans
Government to ban use of plastic bags below 51 microns Plans to rope in women SHGs to manufacture alternative materials; spot fine to be imposed on traders violating rules After a failed attempt, the territorial administration will once again try to impose a ban on manufacture and use of plastic bags below 51 microns. Announcing the decision at a press conference here on Wednesday, Social Welfare Minister M. Kandasamy, who also holds the portfolio of Science, Technology and Environment, said after taking into account the environmental hazard caused by plastic, the government has decided to ban plastic below 51 microns. The manufactures and traders would be given six months time to shift to alternate products, post which the government would impose fine on manufacturers and traders who use plastic carry bags, he said after chairing a meeting of officials from various departments. กระเป๋าเป้ nike If manufacturers or traders were found to be using the material after the ban comes into force, the government would impose a spot fine and prosecute the violators. As per the Food Safety Act, hoteliers are not supposed to pack hot items in plastic items due to potential health hazards. The government has advised hoteliers to abstain from packing ready to eat food items in butter paper and instead they should use plantain leaf for packing hot food items, he said. The government would rope in women-run self help groups to manufacture alternate materials. It is not the first time that the territorial administration had embarked on a mission to ban plastic items below 51 microns.
