We live in a multilingual, transforming society in which language plays a dynamic and central role. We use it every day for communication and it is not possible to imagine life without it - it is generally recognised as a mark of what makes us human. But how often do we think about exactly what language is and how we actually use it? Language, society and communication introduce established and new linguistic concepts and theories, and links these to contemporary issues in society and the media, including new social media, with a particular focus on southern Africa. Language, society and communication explore how language is intricately bound up with issues of power, status and identity. It explores the tension between the diverse nature of everyday language practices, on the one hand, and the societal pressures towards managing and containing this diversity, on the other. It also demonstrates the relevance of linguistic study (e.g. phonology and syntax) to real-world problems (e.g. analysis of a child's acquisition of language), within a southern African context. Study questions and case studies, which relate the theoretical ideas discussed to current research, are provided at the end of each chapter. Language, society and communication is aimed at undergraduate students studying linguistics, language and communication and related fields such as language education.

In the context of junk diets, embedded scientists, corrupt - or simply ignorant - doctors and dietitians, human health and omertàs, what you believe about your personal nutrition will determine not just how you live, but also how you die.' - Tim Noakes

What would you do if you discovered that the food you have been told is good for you is actually the cause of your ill health …?

In December 2010, Professor Tim Noakes was introduced to a way of eating that was contrary to everything he had been taught and was accepted as conventional nutrition 'wisdom'. Having observed the benefits of the low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) lifestyle first-hand, and after thorough and intensive research, Noakes enthusiastically revealed his findings to the South African public in 2012. The backlash from his colleagues in the medical establishment was as swift as it was brutal, and culminated in a misconduct inquiry launched by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). The subsequent hearing lasted well over a year, but Noakes ultimately triumphed, being found not guilty of unprofessional conduct in April 2017.

In Lore of Nutrition, he explains the science behind the LCHF/Banting diet, and why he champions this lifestyle despite the constant persecution and efforts to silence him. He also discusses at length what he has come to see as a medical and scientific code of silence that discourages anyone in the profession from speaking out against the current dietary guidelines. Experienced journalist Marika Sboros provides the full backstory to the HPCSA hearing, which reads like something out of a spy novel. Written in an accessible style, Lore of Nutrition is informative, highly controversial and an eyeopener for anyone who cares about their health.

The World Health Organization estimates that of the 6 million cancer cases diagnosed worldwide each year, 3 million are the result of poor diet. Having watched loved ones succumb to cancer, Clean Food for Cancer is Tammy Sutherns' attempt to give cancer patients and their families the opportunity to look at some ideas and theories on nutrition and diet so they can make up their own minds about what works for them.

Thorough research and expert advice from scientists, oncologists, dieticians and psychologists are interspersed with personal stories from cancer patients and their families, many of whom had to sift through masses of information on Google before they came up with personal solutions. Their experiences highlight the need for such a resource in today's world of information overload and often confl icting advice.

After an overview of cancer, its types and causes, the book introduces readers to 'clean' eating, from the more moderate approaches of eating a balanced diet and avoiding preservatives, hormones and other harmful toxins (going 'organic'), to the more extreme approaches of vegetarianism and veganism. One chapter covers the controversy surrounding red meat, providing research and findings from both sides of the pasture, and another to the fairly new concept, for South Africans at least, of raw food.

The book also touches on various alternative holistic therapies, such as Ayurveda and Reiki as supplements for the more traditional treatments of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. The author is not out to provide a cure or an alternative to medical treatment, but rather to encourage patients, or anyone at risk of cancer, to adopt a diet that promotes good health and that might assist the treatment and recovery processes.

Contents: Introduction; A cruel disease; The C word; Eating clean; Raw food; Does meat matter?; The role of diet in cancer treatment; Taryn's story; Lionel's story; Martin's story; Lindsey's story; Luke's story; Chris's story; Complementary therapy; Cancer prevention; Cancer and you; Afterword; Recipes; Notes; Bibliography

Volksgeneeskuns in Suid-Afrika is 'n versameling van 8705 boererate en het die eerste keer in 1965 verskyn. Vandag, 60 jaar later, lyk die mediese en farmakologiese landskap totaal anders.

In this poignant, hilarious and deeply intimate call to arms, Hollywood's most powerful woman, the mega-talented creator of Grey's Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away with Murder and Catch, reveals how saying YES changed her life - and how it can change yours too. With three hit shows on television and three children at home, Shonda Rhimes had lots of good reasons to say no when invitations arrived. Hollywood party? No. Speaking engagement? No. Media appearances? No. And to an introvert like Shonda, who describes herself as 'hugging the walls' at social events and experiencing panic attacks before press interviews, there was a particular benefit to saying no: nothing new to fear. Then came Thanksgiving 2013, when Shonda's sister Delorse muttered six little words at her: You never say yes to anything. Profound, impassioned and laugh-out-loud funny, in Year of Yes Shonda Rhimes reveals how saying YES changed - and saved - her life. And inspires readers everywhere to change their own lives with one little word: Yes.

Everywhere she looked, the world was in poor shape. And because she'd quit drinking, she no longer had the comfort blanket of alcohol to tamp down her anxiety. How did sober people stay sane?
In recent times, the self-help industry has exploded into a multi- billion dollar global industry - and along with it has come every imaginable type of therapy, healing or general woo-woo. In the past, Rebecca scoffed at this industry, mocking its reliance on half-baked science and the way it appears to prey on the mentally fragile.

But as she searched for a meaning of life that did not involve booze, she found it increasingly hard to rationalize her default scepticism. This shit really seems to work for some people, she reasoned. And it's not like I have any particularly solid alternatives.

Rebecca lives in Cape Town, the undisputed epicentre of 'alternative' paths to peace and enlightenment in South Africa. She decided that over the course of a year, she would embark on a quest for personal wellness, spiritual enlightenment and good old-fashioned happiness. She was willing, within reason, to try anything. She would open herself to even the most outlandish contemporary fads in self- improvement.

What followed was a twelve-month immersion in the world of auras, chakras, hallucinogenic drugs, sweat lodges, sangomas, past lives and more.

And by the end of it? Maybe she would find some new ways of thinking and living. Or maybe she would emerge with her prejudices untouched.

Either way, it would be a good story.
