I was horrified to discover that the Australian Curriculum Studies Association has produced a glossy book of over 116 pages filled with the most staggering Islamic dawa and propaganda which is to be introduced into our schools in the coming year. Having scanned through the text, I was shocked at the contents and false pro-Islamic claims that will be pushed into schools and onto our children without of course, any opportunity to put counter views, not to mention the massive amount of evidence from Islam itself that clearly show Islam to be anything but the sweet, victimised religion portrayed in this book!
This entire brainwashing of our children has clearly been planned over a long period of time. Who is behind it and who paid for this propaganda exercise, which will no doubt sell well to Muslim teachers and others who hate our society and are happy to facilitate Islam? Information sessions for teachers are already being given and this has been done as a ‘fait accompli’ with no time for others to object to this Islamic abuse of our secular schools.
This book is called ‘Learning from one another – bringing Muslim perspectives into schools’. In it our children are told not only how to be Muslims but are given activities like finding Mecca and given Islamic prayers. Why do our children need such information? Why does Islam need to be pushed into the classroom? I thought our secular schools were NOT to [...]
PFOA (pentadecafluorooctanoic acid), PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfon ate) have all been linked to cancer and hormone disruption. Some of these chemicals do not break down they are with us forever. They are in the air our families breathe, our food, our homes and our workplaces. Major lawsuits have been won against the manufacturers using these chemicals in other countries and some companies in the U.S. have been forced to phase out their use in the next decade. They are found in:
* Non-stick pans (brands such as Teflon, Dupont, T-Fal, Silverstone)* * Stain-resistant clothes * GORE-TEX * Microwave popcorn bags * Fast food containers * Fire fighting foam * Candy wrappers * Pizza boxes
The solution to saving your family? Remove your non-stick pans and buy stainless steel or cast iron ones that require elbow grease to keep clean. Many of you believe that if their non-stick pan is not scratched, it’s safe. Not true. Toxic cancer-causing fumes are released into the air when the pan is heated at high temperatures. We will add more tips to the next issue of HomeFront.
In a kitchen we handle lots of tools and appliances that can injure us badly. The wrong use of these tools can lead to small cuts and bruises, it’s not rare to hear stories of people losing fingers and/or get nasty injuries. The main cause of kitchen injuries are from being distracted and not concentrating while handling tools like knifes. It is not uncommon for a housewife to become distracted whilst talking with their children or husband while preparing a meal. The other most common causes of accidents are: people cleaning appliances while they are still on (it may sound dumb but happens really often), using damaged appliances that are not working properly.
To avoid accidents
Make sure you are focus on what you are doing, if for some reason someone interrupts you, stop and handle the situation.
Read the appliances manuals. Most people when they buy a new appliance don’t read the manuals and that is a big mistake because in those manuals are all the safety procedures you should follow while using and cleaning the new appliance.
Avoid using old appliances. Not everybody has the money to replace old appliances but if they are older than 10/15 years just stop using it. Sounds like a waste since they are still working but the truth is that a kitchen appliance omits lots of heat, steam, grease etc and with time the electric structure starts to get old and degraded and the appliance can start working improperly any time [...]
Reuse your yogurt pots By Vicky WAU
Yogurt pots are difficult to recycle. Yogurt pots are made from polystyrene, which is a plastic that is not typically recycled. Since you can’t recycle yogurt pots. * As with all plastic containers, where possible keep them for storage, i use mine for small items like push pins, paper clips, and other smaller bits and bobs that have no home.
* You can also use them for filling with fruit squash or juice before freezing to make ice pops, i also use mine to make my own sugar free jello / jelly and i add small bits of fruit to the bottom.
* Schools & playgroups may use the larger yogurt containers as craft materials so ask your child’s teacher about this, you can also use them for crayons, cotton balls, paint brushes etc.
* They can be used in the garden as pots for seedlings.
* They can be cut into strips and used as plant labels. You just need a permanent marker to write on them as the elements to tend to smudge markers that are not water proof.
* Puncture the bottom of 2 pots, thread a string between them, and then children can use them as a cheap telephone, easy and lot’s of fun for your children.
