Two days into her retirement, Liz Biden, with the unwavering support of husband Phil, decided to turn their private home in the bush into a hotel for guests. The result is the glorious Royal Malewane, located in the greater Kruger National Park and has been a favorite palm of dignitaries, celebrities, and admired by guests for over 22 years.

Following a stay at The Farmstead in 2019, I secretly asked to come back for a stay at Royal Malewane, who read about the fascinating history of ownership in their beautiful book on the coffee table, A Perfect Stay – Inside the Royal Portfolio. My daughter and I arrived at the stately entrance to Royal Malewane with ‘welcome home’ greetings, making us feel embraced by the warmth of hospitality here.

On the main deck next to the waterhole, our table is set for lunch and the personalized menus show a lovely touch. The smidgens colors give life to the dark wooden dining table and leather chairs. A soft red cherry throw doubles as a knee -length blanket while the bright green hues provide glorious silver service.

Scottish -born executive chef Archie has stepped forward to introduce himself and with over 15 years of culinary expertise in England, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa, the eateries are for unparalleled cuisine at Royal Malewane. We ate superbly prepared lamb shank, perfectly prepared beef fillet, melted brownish chocolates, and my daughter’s favorite “best pizza ever”.

We were staying in suite number 7, and the nyalas resident temporarily looked up from custody as we toured them. The handmade doors open into an exquisite haven, with all the luxurious furnishings selected by The Royal Portfolio famous inside doyenne Liz. Not conforming to the standard of ‘safe’ safari colors that include beiges and creams, the not -so -bad use of pure cotton bedding will make you feel like you’re sleeping under a soft cloud.

Persian rugs are carefully placed next to the bed, under the couch in the lounge, and in the glorious bathroom. Slide the doors to open the feeling of that bush to penetrate or remrieve under the pergola while raising your daybed under the threatening eyes of passers-by including the giraffe, elephant, and in our case, the most lovely nyala.

Following a relaxing afternoon spent on our private veranda, we met in the lounge of ranger HJ and tracker Selby for our game drive through the renowned Thornybush Game Reserve. Amidst the cloud of dust, we see them – a pack of seven wild dogs in Africa. One of them had an injury to his back leg as well as a broken jaw and couldn’t stand the rest of them, getting caught until they stopped and ‘nursing’ his wound by licking it. We spend time with the two elephants feeding, stripping the leaves from the dry branches of the tree.

After our sundowner stops, night begins to fall, and on our return to the lodge, HJ signals to Selby to fix where he needs to go, as once in a lifetime sightings have only been reported. In all our years on safari, it was a first for our daughter and my eye – staring at a pangolin in its natural habitat. We were informed that we could get out of the vehicle to take a closer look and the intricate detail on this scaled mammal infuriates us that it is the most practical animal in Asia and Africa. We left him to do business

Returning to the lodge, we ate the best food at Masiya Bar before retiring. The next morning, we saw a pair of mating lions on our game drive, as well as a large lion pride feasting along with some uncomfortable round bellies. It was time to go home after another wonderful meal and while we were waiting for our Airlink flight to Hoedspruit Airport, my son and I asked to be able to spend a few more nights alone at Royal Malewane. Riding the steps of the Airlink Embraer E-Jet, we were relieved by the friendliness of flight attendants, ample plane room, more spacious seats, and landing at Cape Town International Airport ahead of schedule. Just another reason we prefer to enjoy The Freedom of the African Skies with Airlink.

Tuesday’s tone: Sustainable Suburbia https://thebiblepost.com/tuesdays-tone-sustainable-suburbia/ Mon, 18 Oct 2021 21:32:52 +0000 https://thebiblepost.com/tuesdays-tone-sustainable-suburbia/ Fifty years ago, I left my suburban family home to move to the city, and I have lived within a few kilometers of the CBD ever since.

Fifty years ago, I left my suburban family home to move to the city, and I have lived within a few kilometers of the CBD ever since.

I hated my first years in suburbia, I felt lit up by its ordinaryness. My architectural studies have only confirmed this contempt, pouring essays on poor design from houses to planning.

My working life in maintenance suggested that density was the key to the future; that we had to open Baulkham Hills to Surry Hills, Ringwood to Collingwood, Woodbridge to Northbridge. But it seems impossible: the suburbia is so vast, and expanding so rapidly, that it can no longer be changed. The preserved suburbia is the most absurd oxymoron.

But recent events, specifically the COVID years, suggest that we look at suburbia in a different light. Could the very things we condemn in suburbia – low -density sprawl, monotonous monoculture of forms, white picket fence family appeal – be its safety. Can we have sustainable suburbs in the future? Here are some speculations.

Difference and density

Sydney’s mismanagement of the lockdown revealed a huge difference in households, the north and east had smaller numbers in larger houses, the southwest had more people in smaller dwellings. Most of the commentary cited discriminatory political policies applied to the low SE (socio-economic) status of SW households; but behind those observations is a note of social hope.

Larger household sizes are often because multicultural means multi-generational: grandparents, parents, and children living together are common in the Mediterranean and Asia (and our indigenous peoples), but not the Anglo-Celtic-Saxon originated in Skippys, where children can’t wait to leave to buy their own home.

We now see enormous social benefits to the ‘rule reversal’: while parents are working grandparents will take care of the children until the children are old enough to take care of the aging grandparents. . It increases social interaction and helps with child care, home education and cultural transmission. The social benefits are matched by a slight increase in density, aiding in sustainability. So that’s a win in suburbia.

Power over people

Australia has led the world in the uptake of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, almost entirely because it is a suburban country. More than 25% of homes have installed PV panels, an easier purchase for an individual suburban house owner than a strata owner in collective apartments. And many installers are discovering the value of batteries as prices fall.

It is locally generated energy: it is produced, stored, and used by one or more homes. It is the outs of substations and long -distance transmission wires of centralized fossil fuel power stations that are beloved by the National Party and the loony right. While they were stuck at 20ika century trying to replace one fuel with another, 21st The suburbia of the century has completely skipped the debate, moving to the future of ‘wireless’ transmission.

Again, it is precisely the characteristics of suburbia that make this work: large roof areas and lower population densities allow the energy generated to be “carbon neutral”, or better yet, by export. its to local businesses, schools etc., it can be ‘carbon positive’ in ways that the proportionally smaller roof area of ​​apartment buildings, with a larger number of residents, can’t.

Ironic then, that the higher density of urban buildings, often seen as ‘more sustainable’, have always relied on distant power (from wind, solar or forbidden by the sky, gas) to increase the smaller area of ​​PVs they can achieve. Strike two against the inner city.

Proceed

One of the ongoing criticisms in suburbia is the high reliance on fossil fuels for transportation; the low population density rendered mass transit ineffective, increasing reliance on the ICE (internal combustion) car. Electric vehicles change all that. Upon request local electric buses can take residents on the local tram or train (all electric), and all individual travel can be carbon neutral when cars are charged at home. from solar PV to the roof.

Suburbia offers a great advantage for the last issue: billing. A detached house, with its own carport, garage or non-street area can have a dedicated ‘quick charge’ point to plug into. But in the inner city it is impossible to charge an electric vehicle if you live on a terrace without a garage in a back lane or an apartment without parking. You rely on public billing points (rare) or shopping centers (literally spending your time). Strike three against the city.

Homework

One of the major changes to lockdowns is the increase in ‘working from home’. The idea was incorrectly condemned by many politicians who thought all workers were like them, wore white collars (less than 25%) and worked in the city (less than 25%); they forgot to do manual labor on sites or on the move, which however appreciated the fewer commuter cars on the roads.

But the possibility of working at home has changed the outlook on our fabric in the city. Working from a home (occupied 24/7), avoids the commute and the need for office blocks (unsustainable occupied only 8-10 / 5). We can see many family homes with space for an office or two and the rise of home micro workshops, or home-based creative industries or more pieces of space in store corners. All of this is likely to be more sustainable and a further strike against the city.

DIY

Another failure of suburbia, which can be taken advantage of, is the low level, not to say difficult, construction of houses. This belies the ease with which we can change them, converting a single family into a multi-generational is easy in suburbia; by adding alts and adding, a nanny or granny flat, a studio or an income producing micro apartment, which increases both the efficiency and the value of the suburban house.

Some states have coded the change of homes without reference to the local council, and why not? If you stay inside a nominated envelope and build on the code, then let a thousand ideas thrive on every street. Better, and probably more sustainable, than homogeneous McMansion replacements.

Continuous innovation is one of the great possibilities in suburban housing which, importantly, you can’t do in apartment blocks; ironically built to higher standards, and consequently subject to much greater criticism if things inevitably fail. Anyone who has attempted to make even the smallest alts or additions to a Strata controlled building knows how difficult it can be. The Australian birthright of being a DIY homemaker fails at every turn. Strike of five.

Growing up

When suburbia of Australia doubled between 1950 and 1975 the majority of homemaking was by European immigrants who bought from them traditions of home-grown food. Some planted grapes to become wine (or stronger); others grow fruits and vegetables, some of which have never been seen in Aussie culture before. There are gardens on the market in every house.

Now, there’s a resurgence in the idea of ​​the home garden, (thanks Costa and ABC’s Gardening Australia). The 25-year drive to the eastern states to install water tanks means these gardens, growing fruit and vegetables to feed a family or more, are drought proof. And where the gardens may not have enough land, sun or water there is the community garden (converted from Council land or a local Bolo).

We know that heavy meat diets have huge carbon consequences; More fruit and veg in your diet is good for the health of you and the planet. Home -based gardens are a solution in every suburban block of land but near impossible on the wind -blown roofs of modern apartments, which focus on barbecues and outdoor living rather than planting food for the live. Strike six, on the fence and out.

My conclusion

Recently my 95-year-old Mom and I traveled the memory line to see the house I grew up in. The suburb has changed, property values ​​have gone up and it’s filled with a two -story McMansion replacing the beautiful old Calbungs (California Bungalows – actually a Queen Anne with a veranda). And I realize the suburbia I grew up in is better than it is today.

There were six or more in each house, many of them my age. We played in the streets and parks. We walked everywhere. There is only one family car. We have tenants, sometimes two, in the back who ‘shed’. Schools were local like shops, now replaced by a shopping center. European families have grandparents who go out and stay, and they become multi-generational (without that fancy word). The Greek family on the other side of the fence in the back donated vegetables from their garden.

I grew up in a perfect suburb, even though I didn’t appreciate it. Now that it has become a sterile upper middle-class enclave, I hate the suburbia of my childhood more. If only it could be used six ways forward in sustainable suburbia: multi-generational homes with more residents, finished better, with local work at home, local energy, electric cars and food for to all.

Does it want to get something out of the dynamics of Sydney SW, which has been criticized in the press but if we are close to sustainable suburbia, an oxymoron that is gone.

SOUTH AFRICA

Academic guilt is well established in the literature in the work of female scholars who are simultaneously mothers and lecturers, home builders and researchers, caregivers and administrators.

It is a feeling of not being able to cope with conflicting requests in one’s time and is often accompanied by negative self -judgment.

In South Africa and around the world, women academics had to face this challenge of many roles more intensely when the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to work at home.

In our study, women recounted their experiences at various stages from the ‘difficult’ lockdown from March 23, 2020, to the gradual erasure of the lockdown until the end of September 2020.

At all these stages, universities are closed for face -to -face teaching. Only small exceptions were made where institutions gave permission for certain professional fields such as medical student practical work and laboratory work.

The guilt of academics caught up in work -life balance struggles is certainly not new, but when ‘COVID happened’, three things were different:

• The choice of home as a place of work is no longer voluntary but necessary;

• The incidence of people confined indoors has created new demands on working women – such as helping with children’s home education; at

• Workloads have risen sharply, putting more pressure on academics.

Our national study is the first comprehensive analysis of ‘academic offense’ in South Africa. In one survey, we asked more than 2,000 female academics from 26 university students about their experiences and feelings of academic guilt during the pandemic.

We found that the increasing amount of academic work (teaching, research, supervision and student support) along with increasing in-home commitments put women in situations they described as “overwhelming” and “unbearable”.

Our study shows that higher education institutions need to intensify efforts to retain women academics and prevent them from alienating them.

Improved workplace policies and flexibility in working arrangements should be considered, especially when office and home converge.

Competing roles

Despite major changes in the assumption of gender roles in work and family life, traditional expectations that a woman’s primary responsibility should be involved in caring for children and family are still creating. also stress for working mothers.

This is not to say that men do not experience conflict about the competing demands of their work and home life, but recent studies have shown that women have higher levels of guilt associated with their work. which interferes with family responsibilities related to men.

This is why we chose to present the opportunity for them to express their views. We found that for working women with children, the pressure of many competing roles created a sense of guilt. These duties include some or all of the following:

• Teaching university students online;

• Emphasis on student care;

• House cleaning;

• Shopping for food and making food;

• Comforting anxious children;

• Care of infants;

• Helping children with their school work;

• Research and writing; at

• Dealing with a partner whose employment has been terminated or reduced.

Some respondents also felt bad about regular pay if those closest to them lost their jobs. And some felt that “they should be able to do their job” even if they weren’t emotional in a good space.

Respondents recognized that the use of survival skills, such as the use of “putting television on as a means of child care”, is worthwhile. They did this because the pressure of work gave them little choice.

For some, the conflict that causes guilt is not just between work and family. Women’s academies are also torn between two major university obligations; teaching and research.

The research project showed that change in online tutoring affects respondents ’ability to focus on their research, which is a key consideration for academic promotion.

Female academics questioned their productivity. And the pressure is on South African universities to be ‘research intensive’.

Feelings of guilt were also expressed in relation – that is, in comparison to those (men) who did better in their academic work because of an advantage that was perceived to be unfair.

Many participants mentioned the uninterrupted productivity of men during the lockdown. In many households, traditional gender roles were exposed. Women who were unable to perform a caring role during ‘family time’ were conscientious.

But it is the always appropriate demands of family life that build beyond the guilt felt by academic women. Sometimes, the pulling and crying of a child when a mother turns her attention to her work becomes overwhelming.

Working from home and performing multiple duties is highlighted as a constant offense with personal health consequences.

Notification policy

Our research shows that guilt is common, consistent and consequential for academic women. The study concluded that academic guilt persists between the two main tensions of academic work and family care.

Therefore, universities should evaluate their working from home policies. Institutions also need to pay attention to the support available for the health and well -being of employees.

If universities plan to continue working from home policies indefinitely, they need to be aware of the unintended consequences and its impact on women’s academies and academies more broadly.

Future research should address this by exploring alternative work flexibility models adopted by other institutions during the lockdown, to identify best practices. Such studies should include the experiences of both men and women with young children.

Another variable relevant to this exploration is the career stage of academics. The combination of changing professional demands and changing life demands can create the need for different policies at different stages of the career.

Ultimately this research team, and the policies of institutions more broadly, should focus on creating working environments where women academics can become dedicated researchers and educators without any associated guilt.
