Africa can get more from its minerals by building industries to service mines
There are several industries being developed in South Africa that could serve the mining Industry with just for an example I will mention two (2) of them.1) Locally manufactured high quality Grinding Media for the ball Mills2) Self Generation of electricity, not with renewables that will fail, but with Alternative energy generation technologies.Both the above components in mining are expensive and contributes to a huge portion of costs to mine iron, coal, Gold, Manganese, and Platinum, as well as cement etc.. The greatest pity is that BEEE and government lack of support in these critical privately held industries are non existent, thus the continued high costs of mining by companies importing the Grinding Media, and ESKOM bullying the market to survive, doing desperate pricing schedules because of desperate corrupt and inefficient Management.It is clear that self generation by means of advanced alternative technologies, and creating SA factories that use advanced technologies to supply mines with their consumables at a better price and better service.

Basic cyber hygiene practices that go a long way
I run a business of 24 people and it's mandatory to use a VPN on work computers for all of my employees. Most of them can work remotely and I don't want to risk any work related data leak because of insecure connection. I recently changed my VPN provider to Surfshark VPN, the main reason being that they offer unlimited device support, so I bought one account and set it up on every business related device. There were some troubles with macOS because they don't have a macOS client yet, but we work mainly with Windows so that's not a problem. I asked to alert me if there were any significant speed drops, but nobody reported any notice worth changes. I keep an eye out for discounts because I'm extending my plan with Surfshark VPN, currently they're offering a 75% discount using "columbusday" coupon on their website, 1 year plan which I bought already for 30 euros, not a big price for data security. Another thing, you mentioned VPNs do not protect against MITM attacks, but they do by encrypting any data that is being shared between the users, so even if man in the middle obtains it they won't be able to decrypt it. Hackers will always find a way presumably, but isn't that the main reason to take additional security measurements.

#FairnessFirst: SA's Standard Bank commits to global #HeForShe movement
I think what's lacking in Standard Bank's commitment is to correct their gender paygap. It'll be good for them to provide information about their men vs women salaries and what the pay gap is, and what they are going to do about it. Having more women representation is great, but not paying women the same salary for similar positions is still a big issue that hasn't been discussed in their commitments.

Christmas Wish returns to Highveld Stereo
I am in quite a state and really hope that the Christmas wish list can assist. I have a son, Stewart, aged 21 who is currently studying a Bsc Chemical Engineering at Wits University. He works hard and is dedicated and committed to his studies. We paid his first two years but unfortunatly we have fallen on some rough times and his fees this year (85K) we just cannot afford. Stewart is one on 4 children in the family. It breaks my heart to be able to tell him this and I am hoping and praying someone will be able to assist. The banks dont see us as good enough risk for a student loan and I dont know where else to turn. He is willing to work the time off against a loan from any company. Please, please Santa's helpers - if anyone can help a young man, an outstanding young man, please find it in your hearts to do so.

#FoodNextAfrica: The SA startup making ice-cream from insect milk
Oh, it should be a very cool idea, I like to try something new and I would be interested in what kind of ice cream it tastes like) I think this is a very fresh idea, and the technology is innovative. In general, it would be very cool to arrange a tasting with such unusual delicacies, give visitors a try, ask impressions of taste and only after that say that it really was. For sure! That’s how I’d do this. And to the authors of this cool idea, I want to wish good luck and all the best)

Women in leadership - what does race, gender, class have to do with it
God, what an incredibly interesting conference was held, I am extremely upset that I did not manage to attend it. I am especially interested in the socialization of deaf girls, this is a very throttling topic for me, my sister was born deaf and I, like no one, know how hard it is sometimes with such people. Thank you very much that you raised this topic at your conference and I hope that henceforth the attitude towards people with similar defects will be better, God bless you.

Is Africa the Silicon Valley of banking?
There is a condition to make it happen:to empower people via jobs creation and the opportunities. in a word, working on the demand for instead of supply of money. If this doesn't happen, there could be devastating financial implosions.

Efficient, sustainable and effective facilities management
I would think that most business managers and owners would want to run their facilities the most efficient way that they can. Even for me running a self storage centre, I get someone to help me manage the facilities side of things - making sure security and all of the nitty gritty things about the storage units are handled while I manage the business side of things - marketing and getting new customers. It's about being more efficient at the end of the day right?

2017 Access Co-Development Facility competition deadline extended
it sounds like it's a really good opportunity for any fledgling company to enter into if they are able to leverage off of the bigger companies experience and expertise to get a foot in the energy production and storage market. And of course being able to brag about having won such a competition, egging out all of its competitors for the best possible energy plan for the future has its own merits too I reckon!

Five reasons to invest in huddle space
An office would need additional space to cater to the idea of huddle rooms. I think the concept is pretty similar to a conference room which offices would already have by now. It just needs a little more room for the storage of communication equipment. The area would be really beneficial should members get a conducive place to brainstorm ideas and work on a project together as a team.
