Corrupt officials - 100 convictions sought
You talk about corruption. President Zuma is trying to get out of paying money back in respect of Nkandla. I have been working for the Government and so does he. If someone made a mistake and you received money or benefits that you are not entitled to, the money is simply deducted from your salary on monthly installments. So how can he say I did not asked for it, and therefore I am not paying back any money. Any other Government official does not have a say, it is simply deducted.

It's all in the logo
Nice article. Very relevant considering all the re-branding being done by big brands and companies.

New look for SABC3
Will all three of the local SABC channels be re-branded? How does this re-branding align itself with the current SABC identity?

New logos for Primedia Broadcasting brands
Great question! Was sufficient research conducted? Were the logos evaluated in terms of meaning, particularly in relation to the brands they represent. The message is quite clear with the logos of 702 and Cape Talk, but for me the big concern is EWN. Apart from the web 2.0 button style aesthetics applied to the logo the 'E' has been represented by three horizontal lines that look very much like the menu button used by most mobile websites. My concern is that the conceptual idea risks ambiguity. One might argue that this is an established brand people will recognize. Even though this is a well established brand, they are attempting to present a new, possibly modern, brand image. Unfortunately this may be at the expense of maintaining clear brand name communication. When I view this logo out of context I don't see the acronym clearly.

The Loeries - where brands and creativity meet
Hmm?

Why do to of the biggest FMCG brand houses have so much interest in the Loeries?

These two institutions remove any creative relevance from their work and substitute it with Millwood Brown research stats and then wonder why they aren't winning awards?

Then on top of that, most... not all work represented at Loeries are not created from "LIVE" briefs, but edge on the side of proactive work, because the real briefs are written by those very like-minded FMCG houses that are now sponsoring the event...

Something isn't right here...

This tactic smells like they are trying to manipulate the industry to producing their type of work, hence the two new categories.

The Loeries should stay independent from big brand sponsorship.

We are doing the industry a disservice by welcoming the wolves into our space.

it will only lead to bad things in my opinion.

SMS is a good fit for mobile marketers
Dear - Voice Broadcast is much more effective than Bulk SMS in that voice requires no level of literacy than SMS.

You still have quite a large number of people in Rural areas in South Africa and Africa that can't read or write but can pick up their phone calls and listen to a broadcast voice message.

So, yes, I agree with you that SMS is better than IM but Voice is even much better.

Customisation - for the big boys it's the best thing since sliced bread
Thanks for the comment Bob and sorry for the delayed response.

That's the great thing about customisation in the QSR industry, there can be everything for everyone. Whether you on low-carb, a vegitarian, lactose-intolerant or any other form of special diet, everyone is accomodated. There's a flip side to the story though, if everyone can get whatever they like and however they like, wont this cause more traffic in QSR restaurants i.e. less home cooking ('healthy food') and as a result a 'fatter SA'? I mean is this not also one reason that encourages obesity in the US and the UK? Just thinking out loud, I still can't wait to build my own burger on home soil!

The dirty truth about the UK's least-loved chores
These figures clearly specifies that our house, windows, air ducts, rugs are needed to be clean in regular basis. Cleaning them in regular intervals creates a healthy environment. This is the reason why my friend and I've have hired Denver carpet cleaning professionals to look behind all our house cleanness.

JB Marks Education Trust receives sponsorship for 2013 awards
Requesting for Educational sponsorship to continue my B-tech ECE .
Dear, Sir/Madam

I am writing this letter in request of educational sponsorship in order to cover related costs and expenditures. I am attending the B-Tech ECE Branch at Gudlavalleru Engineering Collage , Gudlavalleru , Andhrapradesh ,India . I am also enrolling as A grade 12 graduate with 97% student and I reside in Gudlavalleru village ,Andhrapradesh.

Furthermore, I have realized that it is time for me to further my education. I feel that I should prepare myself for when I go to Collage that I will not drop out because of lack of educational knowledge. I choose to keep my educational learning habits up by finishing this course.

As a career choice, I look forward to becoming a Qualified Electronics Engineer As My group ECE .

However, without the B-tech ECE program, this goal is not possible. Therefore, with your assistance I will be able to achieve future goals.

Serious consideration of my request would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

If required any ID Proof details from my educational Qualification , I will submit it ASAP..

Sincerely,
Mutyala Lavanya .

Making the MOST of education in the media industry
Talking about media training... more specific radio... with very little training available in South Africa. In all my years at the SABC there was no training. The only training was on-air - jump in and swim. It is now thirty years later. Every day we hear about "Skills" and that SA can't lose those skills. We are busy establishing radio courses - from managing, presenting,production, technical, advertising and scriptwriting. But oh boy.. the politics and processes to get accredited!! But we will get there. And as you say.. where are the people.. the senior people with the experience and knowledge?

Good. Thanks for the heads-up. Now I can avoid downloading it by mistake and having to listen to that bunch of puritanical hypocrites.

Sports federations sign transformaton agreements
If you pay the piper you can call a tune..... yes, "a" tune and not necessarily 'the' tune. It depends how much you pay - and so it applies to Mbalula's and the ANC cadre's transformation agenda. For all those sports that get taxpayer's cash to fund their sports in various ways, this political interference will be tolerated. However, if there's no cash forthcoming, and in advance to boot, they can kiss goodbye to calling any and all shots.

Why your brand shouldn't act like an Arctic ground squirrel
Good points made Hilton & the use of the metaphor made it so much clearer. But what happens with cold and flu brands that do not quite have much to say during warmer months

What is your brand's social identity?
Interesting article Louise. This is a manner of being distinct from competitors but many brands would find it difficult to be original when presenting their social identity, more so similar brands. Engaging consumers requires captivating content that appeals to them each time, meaning constant research regarding their interests is essential to remain distinct
