ON THE LIGHTER SIDE


The answer to the puzzle last week was 87 did you get it right?

 
 Rolls in Cape Tiown

 WHY?


 The Fridge



One morning at a doctor 's clinic a well built man arrives complaining of severe
back pain, the doctor examines him and asks OK what happened to your
back?


The patient replies "you know that I... work as a bouncer for a local night club? This morning I got home to my apartment early and heard a noise in my bedroom. On entering I knew someone had been with my wife and the balcony door was open. I rushed out the balcony door and did not find anyone.

As I looked down from the balcony I saw a man running out and he was dressing himself.

I grabbed the fridge and threw it at him.  That's how I strained my back"The 2nd patient arrives looking as if he has been in a car wreck.

The doctor said "My previous patient looked bad, but you look terrible. What the hell happened to you?"

He replied, "You know I have been unemployed for a while now. Today was the first day at my new job. I forgot to set my alarm and was running late. I was running out of the building, getting dressed at the same time, and you wont believe it but I was hit by a fridge."Then the 3rd patient arrives;

He even looks worse than the other two patients do and shivering like a reed.

The doctor is now shocked.

Again asks, "What the hell happened to you.....!!?""Well, it started like this.... I was sitting in my neighbor's fridge"

More than 20,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in Sri Lanka, and many of them prove fatal. The Rotary Club of Colombo, Sri Lanka, set out 10 years ago to save some of those lives by establishing the Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Centre.


In partnership with the National Cancer Control Programme and the Ministry of Health, the center in Colombo has screened more than 35,000 patients, mostly low-income, and detected more than 7,500 cases of abnormalities that required further investigation. The Rotary Club of Birmingham, Alabama, USA, donated a mammography and ultrasound scanner to the center’s breast cancer screening facility.

The Colombo Rotary club is seeking to open early detection clinics in other easily accessible locations throughout Sri Lanka.

LATEST NEWS FROM RAGES.


Elephants are worth 76 times more alive than dead


310 Nbi

 

 
Africa's elephants are under siege. Driven by foreign demand for ivory, poachers are killing these iconic animals faster than they can reproduce. More than 120,000 African elephants were poached from 2010 to 2013, and on average, one is now killed every 15 minutes somewhere across the continent.


The motivation for this carnage is the high price of ivory: A pair of elephant tusks can bring in about $21,000 on the black market. But according to a new report by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust's iWorry campaign, every living elephant can generate $1.6 million for its local economy by attracting eco-tourists. In other words, a live elephant is worth 76 times more than a dead one.
