How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450ºF; line 2 large baking sheets with parchment. Place broccoli in a large bowl and drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cayenne, if desired. Using your hands, toss to coat broccoli with oil and seasonings; spread broccoli evenly on baking sheets. Roast until broccoli is tender and lightly charred in spots, 10 to 15 minutes, stirring once and switching baking sheets from top to bottom halfway through. Let cool completely, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together lemon juice, mustard, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Slowly drizzle in remaining 3 tablespoons oil, whisking constantly until blended.
Add celery, apple, and roasted broccoli to dressing; toss to coat. Top with almonds and serve.
Scroll through Hannah Bronfman’s Instagram feed and you’ll get a nice picture of what healthy living looks like: The 29-year-old DJ and fitness influencer regularly shares snapshots of her killer workouts and stellar skincare regimen with her 364,000 followers. (FYI: She’s obsessed with microcurrent facials.)
But these days, Bronfman’s current motivation to keep up her clean lifestyle is her wedding. She's tying the knot with fellow DJ and social media star Brendan Fallis this weekend in Morocco.
Bronfman's idea of wedding prep has nothing to do with detoxing, however. “There’s all this stupid pressure about losing weight for your wedding,” the HBFIT founder told The New York Times earlier this month. “I’m really not into it.”
The soon-to-be bride's goal is to feel her best on the big day. Here are five ways she has made wellness a top priority during her wedding week.
Bronfman says she always tries to avoid dairy, but in the last few days, she's been following a macrobiotic diet while staying at the Sha Wellness Clinic in Spain. She wrote on Instagram that this new way of eating has made her "rethink her diet completely."
In an Instagram story, Bronfman shared this snap of her and the almost-groom getting cozy on the tennis court. Talk about a perfect match.
After slipping into some killer Adidas gear (Bronfman’s a global ambassador for the brand), she got her "om" on. Not a bad idea to get centered before the wedding craziness begins: "will try to channel the zen to calm my inner hype beast!!" she wrote.
Because no skincare enthusiast would be wedding-ready without her go-to products, Bronfman tagged two of her beauty must-haves in this snapshot she posted to her Instagram story yesterday: The Bright Eye Firming mask from Joanna Vargas ($60 for 5 masks; joannavargas.com) and KNC Beauty's All-Natural, Collagen-Infused lip mask ($25 for 5 masks; birchbox.com).

Cape Town – Proteas batting coach Neil McKenzie says that South Africa will not take the third and final one-day international (ODI) against Bangladesh lightly despite clinching the series.
The Proteas lead the three-match ODI series 2-0 with the final game scheduled in East London on Sunday.
McKenzie believes that despite the tour not going well for Bangladesh – there are positive signs.
“There are signs, there’s definitely no doom and gloom for the Bangladesh side,” McKenzie told reporters on Friday.
“I think it’s just when you run into a guy like AB de Villiers in his prime in Paarl last week.”
McKenzie admitted that the Proteas will not see the game as a “dead-rubber” despite winning the series.
“We’re just trying to win three-nil,” said the former Proteas batsman.
“You can’t underestimate any team and Bangladesh have showed over the last year and a half that they have played some good cricket at times. They beat Australia in a Test game and they’ve beaten South Africa in a couple of one-dayers,” he said.
“It’s another one-day international for us and it’s an honour playing for us. There’s no dead-rubber and we won’t take the game lightly.”
If the Proteas manage to whitewash Bangladesh, they will retain their No 1 position on the ICC ODI team rankings.
The third and final ODI gets underway on Sunday at Buffalo Park at 10:00.
PRETORIA – The City of Tshwane Municipality officials on Friday cycled around town as an initiative to promote an environmentally-friendly mode of transport.
The cycling is part of the Green Mobility Fridays initiative aimed at building awareness that cycling can also assist in decongesting traffic.
— City of Tshwane (@CityTshwane) October 20, 2017
The cyclists went on a 5km route starting their journey at the Tshwane House at 7am. They cycled up to Sisulu Street and went right into Visagie Street and then right into Paul Kruger Street, through Church Square, and finally right into Madiba Street.
The awarness aims to encourage motorists to be less dependent on their cars and to use public transport like the Tshwane Bus Service, A Re Yeng, Metrorail, Gautrain and taxis.
“This initiative is all about stepping out of our comfort zone and get into our buses and taxis and on bicycles or do a bit of footwork on both Fridays.
One understands that using public transport might not be as enjoyable as commuting in your own vehicle, but it does ease congestion, reduces emissions and gives you plenty of quality time to get to know your neighbours or people working around your workplace,” said Tshwane’s MMC for Roads and Transport, Sheila-Lynn Senkubuge.
As part of the awareness, the municipality created a car-free zone in Hatfield by closing Burnett Street between Festival and Grosvenor Street from 5am until 5.30pm.
“The Tshwane Green Ride goes beyond the riding of bicycles, as it connects communities that historically were spatially and socially divided and thus serves as a social connector. It is also of great significance to educate our communities about the considerable economic, social and environmental benefits of clean mobility.
This is the reason we want to urge members of the public to join and support these Transport Month activities wherever they are in the city,” said Senkubuge.
African News Agency
Johannesburg – Government has expressed shock and sadness following the death of Joe Maila, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi’s spokesperson.
“Joe practised his craft with passion and this trait saw him grow from strength to strength as he served across various government departments over the years,” said Minister of Communications Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane, on behalf of government communicators.
Maila apparently accidentally shot himself at a shooting range in Silverton in Pretoria, police said.
“In his daily work, he always viewed the media as a partner to address the health challenges we face as a country.
“He contributed to creating an informed citizenry as he communicated government’s health policies and programmes to the public,” Kubayi-Ngubane said.
She said Maila upheld the principles and ethics of the communication profession.
Inquest docket opened
Gauteng police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini said: “A 48-year-old male shot himself at a shooting range in Silverton at around 18:00 on Thursday.”
Dlamini said the circumstances surrounding the incident would be part of an inquest.
An inquest docket has been opened.
The minister said in a statement on Friday afternoon that it was with a “profound sense of sadness” that he made the announcement about Maila’s death.
“He passed yesterday evening. The circumstances surrounding his death are not yet known to the ministry. Joe Maila is survived by his wife and two children,” Motsoaledi said in a statement.
“I appeal to the media and members of the community to allow the family space to deal with his death. Details of his memorial and funeral services will be announced as soon as we receive information from the family.”
Johannesburg – Former president Kgalema Motlanthe says citizens should be concerned about Cabinet reshuffles as they destabilise the state.
He was speaking at the launch of the Olof Palme Youth Education Initiative at Midrand High School, outside Johannesburg, on Friday.
The initiative is aimed at enhancing social values and international solidarity between the youth of Sweden and South Africa.
Motlanthe said it was of concern that when new ministers take up their positions after a Cabinet reshuffle, from their first day on the job they are accompanied by new senior managers.

“[The new minister comes with] 14 to 16 new senior managers without first going into the department and understanding the strength and institutional memory which resides in the department. You know what that means? It means that the state is being destabilised and weakened,” he said.
He explained that when new people are brought into a department by an incoming minister they find themselves on a steep learning curve and in an environment with little or no institutional memory, leading to a wobbly state and a high turnover of staff at senior management level.
“It shouldn’t happen that way, we should be very very very worried each time there is a reshuffle, it means the entire experienced team is set aside and a new team is brought in, because the state must always be stable,” he said.
‘We should never rest on our laurels’
He explained that the country’s Constitution allows citizens to be active in changing the situation and for democracy to prevail.
“Once we are passive and we are not active, and we don’t know and understand our rights, democracy can go terribly wrong, it can be skewed, and work for those who can afford it and never work for those who can’t afford it,” he said.
Motlanthe spoke fondly of the close friendship between struggle stalwart Oliver Tambo and former prime minister of Sweden, Olof Palme, saying that it showed their shared values. Tambo, Motlanthe said, was instrumental in helping Palme take the stance he took on apartheid. Tambo would have turned 100 years old this year.
Palme – who was assassinated in 1986 – was one of the few leaders who spoke openly about breaking the shackles of the injustices and unfairness of apartheid. Motlanthe described him as a man who played a massive role in making the world a better place.
“Tambo regarded Palme as one of our own, as a South African, because of his influence in bringing about change in South Africa.
“His life serves as a reminder that we should never rest on our laurels, but continue to fight for a better life,” said Motlanthe, encouraging students to make the work of Tambo and Palme their own.
JOHANNESBURG – Sebetja Matsaung, the evidence leader in Eskom’s disciplinary hearing of suspended Eskom acting CEO Matshela Koko, threatened to “take out” Financial Mail deputy editor, Sikonathi Mantshantsha.
In an explosive exchange of words, Matsaung swears at and insults Mantshantsha, and threatens to take him out “the African way.”
Koko has pleaded not guilty to six charges in connection with his failure to declare a conflict of interest.
Koko was suspended as CEO of Eskom in August, reportedly for not declaring a conflict of interest over the awarding of a contract to a company linked to his stepdaughter.
Matsaung has subsequently apologised to Mantshantsha.
Two in 10, of the one million children with tuberculosis (TB) globally, die each year.
Speaking from the Union World Conference on Lung Health that took place in Mexico earlier this month, Dr Jeffery Starke said a staggering 96% of these deaths are in children who never received anti-TB drugs because the disease is very difficult to diagnose in kids.
A much-needed solution
An international paediatric TB expert, based at the Texas Children’s Hospital in the United States, he said the largely preventable and treatable disease causes so many deaths in children because it is often misdiagnosed as pneumonia or meningitis.
But new research coming out of the University of Cape Town (UCT), presented at the conference, may provide a much-needed solution.
TB is usually diagnosed using sputum samples: mucous coughed up from the lungs. But children often don’t have the force to cough such samples up and may be subjected to very “invasive” diagnostic methods, if at all, said Dr Paula Fujiwara, scientific director for the Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease.
These can include a technique called gastric lavage where a tube is inserted through the nose and fed down to the stomach of the child to extract the contents, which are then sent to a lab to test for TB.
Tissue from the tongue
Three consecutive samples are ideally needed for a correct diagnosis, requiring three repeat trips to a health facility or for the patient to be admitted – which is labour intensive and costly to both patients and their families as well as the health system.
But for the first time, scientists are investigating whether tissue from the oral cavity, including from the cheeks tongue and gums can be used to successfully diagnose TB.
Researchers from UCT and the Tuberculosis Vaccine Initiative found that tissue from the tongue was the most sensitive. They are currently involved in phase two of a trial which aims to enrol 275 patients in the Western Cape to test if these samples can successfully be used to diagnose TB – especially for patients who can’t or find it difficult to produce sputum.
So far they have “promising” results for 49 samples from TB patients, 45 of which have tested positive in the laboratory using the oral swab method, translating into a sensitivity rate of 92%.
Rapid point-of-care tool
The implications for the success of this study are significant, particularly for children, according to Dr Angelique Luabeya, one of the trial’s lead researchers.
“It would be so easy to take a sample. My daughter could do it,” she said. “Patients themselves could even take a sample – it would be as simple as brushing your teeth and nobody does that for you.”
A small brush is used to scrape the inside of the mouth, after which the brush is sealed in a small container and sent to the laboratory for testing. In contrast, sputum testing requires a patient to cough up mucus, a process that, if not done under the right circumstances, can even aid transmission of the air-borne disease.
The “long-term” vision is to translate this diagnostic method into a rapid point-of-care tool that can be used by lay health workers without the need for laboratory testing.
Said Luabeya: “The beauty of it is it’s so simple that we wonder why no-one’s done it before.” – Health-e News.
