It is quite pleasing when one of South African universities has well recognised programmes compared to international universities. This means that the quality of graduates produced by UCT fits anywhere in the world Posted on 15 May 2013 20:06
Agree with the invention of a sim card many application gave way in means of technology. Digital media has been a driving force of most corporate companies, however the traditional print will still and always have a place. With digital print now in our midst as attracted short run print media at cost effective prices. Media or mediums of transacting communiction are vast ie: Internet, Print, Radio, TV, SMS/MMS are brilliant currently. Companies need to focus on the best attraction mediums.

Brilliant article, the points you covered are so critical and almost always forgotten about. You are so right in saying that often the person writing the guideline will not be the one using the guideline and can so easily forget to consider all the scenarios. Posted on 14 May 2013 17:03
I cannot wait the day the language of doing business is Mandarin. Then everyone will know the challenge of using language only spoken in the office for communicating. That does not mean spell checks are not important. Posted on 14 May 2013 14:32
I'm one of those Americans struggling with bad credit due to some hard times in the past. I've wanted to get a car loan but I was afraid to get rejected due to bad credit. Good to know there is a way around it. Posted on 14 May 2013 13:22
Thank you Marion, this is a massive frustration for me as well. And I completely disagree with Joe Black.
Really Joe, you are playing the old race card with this...Why must people always bring things back to race. Its got nothing to do with colour, its got to do with respecting the english language. That quoted communication is full of pompous and ceremonious language that is unneccesary these days. If you are going to talk above the people at least make sure you spell correctly. Simple clear english with correct spelling is not a difficult thing to accomplish. I am first language english and STILL daily rely on spellcheck to make sure I have no errors. If I want to use a "big" word where I am unsure of its meaning...I google it. There really isn't any excuse.
And in the teaching of english...*facepalm*. If the respect isn't there, then where will it come from.
I can guarantee you that if I was asked to right an article in a language that is not my own I would ask my peers to check it and ensure it was correct before it went anywhere. Posted on 14 May 2013 10:10
