Snake oil or genius?
In his particular article, it is quite sweeping & inflammatory to claim that all people who 'bant' are "brainwashed". How did you arrive at this decisive conclusion? Quote from your article: "So what is it that has literally brainwashed people into converting to this LCHF religion?”. Personally, I can only speak for the people I myself have encountered as regards the subject matter, and thus far I have not met an individual who has blindly 'banted' without question, opinion, assessment &/or customization (maybe I am lucky or maybe people who ‘bant’ are generally not mindless fanatics). I must add I am open to any and all fair research done around the topic. And, after any such education I will continue make my own, quiet, non-accusatory decisions about the matter.

As for the “LCHF religion” reference…it comes off as disapproving and is a trivialisation of religion. I would not classify a lifestyle choice/philosophy regarding what a person chooses to eat and drink (or not) as "brainwashed people converting to an LCHF religion" – judgmental some? Perhaps a more constructive question to ask is WHY do people buy into "LCHF/Banting", and/or whether or not their reason/s is/are sensible, practical &/or sustainable.

The biggest stories of 2013, the worst of 2013 - and those that made us laugh
He really was the man who kept the African countries joint for such a long period. Now after couple of years after his death the situation of the African countries is that bad that people are scared to travel the African nations, example I offer people jobs that involve travel but they often decline me when I tell them that they will have to travel to Africa for their specific task mainly because of the high amount of crime rate and terrorism. In a nutshell African countries need to improve their security atmosphere rapidly and I don't think that can happen now after this great man has demised he was the last hope for Africa.

[TrendTalk] Is social media all hype?
It is really interesting to see what conversations on social media; especially community pages, are all about. Hard to interpret. But no holds barred opinion with a total disregard for legal consequences. "Restaurant X should be avoided since the new chef / owner ' because decor, price quality etc. in reply to a honest " Where should I take my father for lunch - I'm new here" Posted on a community page with 5k readers. Now that is data to consider.

'Sima and Shakes'-ing up Cremora's ads - not inside, still on top?
All you have to to is read the label on the pack. You don't even have to buy the product, just read it in your grocery store. That's not the role of advertising.

'Sima and Shakes'-ing up Cremora's ads - not inside, still on top?
As the public becomes more aware and educated concerning additives and carcinogenics which food manufacturers use to concoct food products, I think it would be a great opportunity for the makers of Cremora to use their advertising to enlighten the consumer as to the actual contents of their product. They don't have to give away their recipe - but how about telling us what Cremora actually is?
Is it dried milk powder? Is it polyfiller? Is it some other chemicals concocted to replace milk powder and what are the benefits or dangers in consuming Cremora?

Having grown up with the original ad, I must say this is a very creative and modern take on an old classic.

People will always believe what they want to believe especially when it comes to weight management and health. The R8BN complementary and alternative health industry is another example. Anyone can produce any product without doing peer reviewed trials, package it attractively and sell it for a fortune. Look at the resistance by this industry to Govt plans to regulate it. It is proved over and over again that most of these supplements are expensive urine. Big pharma are equally corrupt and manipulate their research too. Until we grow up and stop letting ourselves get hoodwinked we get what we deserve.

Car dealerships' ad spending "misaligned with customers"
Just a ridiculous article. Its the online "gumtree" manager / marketer simply promoting his own medium with no real fact or substance. The reason why traditional media still work for automotive advertising is that they still provide the best content and invest in content and writers who can give a non biased opinion on a vehicle. Most traditional media are online anyhow, even local publications and they have a direct link to their audience and a credibility. Just buying an arbitrary vehicle from an unknown source on a national "megasite" is maybe where they will do their homework on value and price comparisons, but not really what the local audience will trust as a trusted source.

Car dealerships' ad spending "misaligned with customers"
This was such an interesting read, in a research industry that usually focuses on the OEMs and little on the car dealers that get those manufactured vehicles to buyers. Accenture conducted a report on South African drivers earlier in the year. The tastes of motorists should be where the dealers align their marketing budgets, and as this analysis of the research suggests http://www.usedcarsforsale.co.za/news/49/what-south-african-car-drivers-want-accenture-report, the dealers just aren't cracking it with millennials.
