Editor's Letter

Editing my first issue of Gas Magazine has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences of my life. I have been fortunate to have committed peers (all under the age of 25) who are dedicated to everything they do. For us, bringing you these stories is more important than simply meeting our varsity’s demands.


In this issue, you will read about global issues like internet addiction and the U.S. Navy’s use of dolphins as killing machines. We also focus of South African stories like flaws in our health system and the upcoming elections. Then of course we look at the less serious side of life, like people who worship aliens and what’ll happen to the Proteas in the T20 WC. There’s also a critique of our president that won’t make us many new friends.


If you’re a theatre lover, then you should enter our give-away competition to go see Blood Brothers. If you’re a music junky, then look out the monthly iTunes vouchers (for more info, check out our page on Facebook).


In every team, you’ll find disagreements and people with different opinions… yet we stuck together and conquered. I would like to thank the most amazing editorial team and committed reporters who made every deadline amidst all their other assignments and tests. Our hard work has paid off and we hope you enjoy the results.


Here’s to our next issue and many more!
