JSE unveils a new brand identity
I have just visited the new JSE website. I don't understand how in today's world you could design a site that does not properly resize to a mobile device. The view area bleeds off my tablet. This contradicts the stated objectives of the client 1) showcasing the technology that drives the JSE 2) being more accessible. I suspect that a large portion of visitors to the site will be using tablets. A refreshed logo will not change perception if the user experience is poor.

SABC DA ad ban: The battle continues
ANC Ayisafani-DA advert is a great piece of work, thought provoking not really but a laudable brazen attempt to educate the uneducated and to enlighten the mis-educated. The only offense I can think of under the Advertising Codes (Comparative advertising), DA specifically mentioning ANC and explicitly referring to ANC’s inability to deliver on their promises.

DA continuously poses the need for change, George Orwell’s simplifies DA’s approach by saying “the most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” . It’s an interesting political period in our country indeed and 7 May Ayisafani.

Online property rental simplified
For people looking for property investments, the shortage in student housing creates a lot of opportunity - they can either buy specific properties to convert, or take in students in their own homes - e.g. spare rooms in their homes, or convert extra rooms attached to the property. www.TheRoomLink.co.za is definitely making it possible to rent these out to better quality tenants!

Employment equity report 'disappointing and superficial'
This sort of work is the typical result of putting unqualified (and in the case of two of the commissioners, two people with agendas that are probably very anti business) into positions where they deliberate and pronounce on issues and sectors of which they know nothing and understand nothing.

Tourism Act signed into law
SMME's will benefit if NDT is set to uplift struggling start up industries and the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa (TGCSA) keeps a firm had and help where ever they can, to get destination marketing and eco -tourism off the ground. People want an unique experience when they come to visit South Africa. It has been proven over and over.

Townships are the new black
"Soapies are central to township communities and influences what happens around them. It is on television but it is a reflection of what is real in these communities."

This is absolutely not true. Soapies influence absolutely nothing in township dwellers' lives. Do you think Generations or Scandal represent or reflect the lives of someone who lives in Pimville, Newlands West or Nyanga East? Soapies are a fantasy, detached from the reality of residents trying to make a living. It's a form of escape, not a mirror that shows their lives.

SABC's DA ad ban backfires
First law of advertising success; get your advert banned, have it publicly announced in the news by those who banned it and then see it go viral. Thank you SABC for assisting with the distribution of online advertising.

Sharing the burden of rising property and interest rates
Renting out rooms in homes was quite common in the 50s and 60s, but somehow people have forgotten that it could be a good source of extra income.
