President Zuma calls emergency meeting on Lesotho
President Jacob Zuma lets resolve the Nkandla issue before worrying about the problem in Lesotho.

Let the people of Lesotho resolve their problem.

SABC: Did Tshabalala lie about her qualifications?
It seems to be the culture of most of the people appointed by the African National Congress to lie about their qualifications.

State says it will create 6m jobs in five years
Public Works Deputy Minister Jeremy Cronin has a grin on his face that gives one the impression, 'please slap me, please slap me.'

Six million more babies in five years will be created and not jobs.

Attract youth to academia says Zuma
You mean well with your comments and 'plans' Mr President, but these learners do not have funding. look at how the current students are struggling with payments from NSFAS, how should they study without funding?

Dear Sir

...Infrastructure both to support growth and bring about greater equality,build the industrial economy and develop black industrialists.The structure of ownership and control established over centuries of colonialism and apartheid remains in place.Most sectors are dominated by a few large producers!The majority of household lack financial and productive assets!Sector strategies to encourage economic diversification and jobcreation and the imperative o improving basic education and skills development!

The exlusion of black people from opportunities in the labour marketand direct ownership of businesses and land!Limited investment infrastructure and services in black communities and black entrepreuners were denied access to credit and industrial and retail sites...

Kind Regards

Water pollution in Mpumalanga mines may cause food crisis
I totally agree with this article. If the government isn't going to do something about the regulation and rectification of the plumbing system then who is? These peopl deserve at the very least access to clean water and the facilities to grow their crops and earn a living for themselves.

Growing awareness of SA's water scarcity
It's stories like this that realy make me appreciate the good plumbing that we have in London. Honestly, it is one thing to have problems with getting water to your house and an entirely different problem when there isn't even the infrastructure to give you the choice. At least with proper piping and everything, you have a choice to decide how you wanna get things done.

Retailers strive to adapt as customers struggle
Now isn't that the story of everybody's life. So many things just aren't able to catch up with increasing prices everywhere! It's no wonder that people are worse for wear. While the prices of cars and fuel and food and basic necessities inflate every year, wages obviously aren't going up! How's anybody going to afford anything if they weren't rich to begin with! I say we need to do something about it do something to make living a little bit more sustainable!

Stor-Age acquires Public Storage property portfolio
INTERESTING! As a franchisee for a self storage company, I can't even imagine running such a big operation of 6 locations worth of self storage. But what a challenge… This makes me really curious to see what kind of software system they are using in order to get everything organized and tracking which customers own what units and where! It really gives me a whole new perspective to the self storage game..

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

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.
