Imagine, if you would, you wake up with the soothing rays of the morning sun on your face. The shades on the east side of your bedroom decided to louver automatically a few moments before you planned to get up. Well, that's here already and I'm glad to talk about it because I have been a window blinds supplier since ninth grade.

The majority of South Africans with access to the internet (63%) believe that violence against children has become more frequent in the last five years. This is in line with the global average of 62% in 28 countries believing that violence against children has become more frequent. This is an important finding in view of yesterday being International Human Rights Day and also the last day of the 16 days of Activism Against Violence Against Women and Children.

Many of South Africa's sports teams and its associated sponsors are completely missing the plot when it comes to using social media. Far too many seem content with absolutely no plan and willy-nilly approach to using social networks, instead of actually making the most of the power of social media.
