If you encounter brokers scammers once, this does not mean that all brokers are scammers. Olymp Trade has been working since 2014, and I have been working with them since 2016. The company is a member of Fina?om, so if there were such cases, then Fina?om has long since ruled out Olymp Trade. I think it's silly to talk about one broker on the basis that some brokers are scammers. For all the time I worked with Olymp, I had no problems with the withdrawal of money, which is obvious, since it is a large company offering high-quality services.
Good morningWhere can one possibly buy these grains in bulk in South Africa? We are looking for a local spot, to minimize our carbon footprint and also whether we'd be able to order these goods plastic free?Looking forward to your responseNicola
One can see from this article that Butch has absolutely NO knowledge about focus groups and qualitative research (not even about the so-called quoted costs). A total disgrace that he calls himself a market researcher.
Encouraging to see a International Brand getting it right in light of recent publicity around the woes other International Brands have experienced during the last few months perhaps serving as a reminder about the reality of the South African competitive landscape. Leveraging a kiosk concept and partnering with existing retailers is not a new concept, multiple coffee brands have gone this route among others, the long term success of this strategy would likely depend on the ability of the business to maintain their product quality and integrity if you venture to speak to loyal patrons who had their morning flat white butchered at a kiosk before
This comes as no surprise at all. I made a presentation at the CoCT chambers regarding these amendments (specifically the cell mast by-laws) stating that the Public Participation Process is a sham. It is only used to give a veneer of respectability to a deeply flawed process. The decisions are made long before these PPPs are held and they are merely a rubber-stamp exercise. At the PPP hearing, nobody spoke in favour of these amendments and many speakers raised objections - these were simply ignored. By passing these amendments, they have proven my point. In fact, I regret having participated in this PPP because by doing that, I have simply lent some credibility to an entirely dishonest process. The entire PPP needs to be overhauled - it's not working for citizens. Interestingly, at that same hearing, one speaker raised the fact that CoCT loses 94% of the cases that go to court after these PPPs - that says something in itself.I would assert that these amendments are unconstitutional. On 19 February 2019, the Constitutional Court handed down judgement in the Simcha Trust v Da Cruz & Others and CoCT v Da Cruz & Others. They ruled that local authorities had an obligation, when considering a building application, to apply the legitimate expectations test when considering whether the surrounding area where the building is to be erected would likely be disfigured or whether such a building would be unsightly or objectionable. The legitimate expectations test would accordingly require the decision maker to consider the impact of the proposed development on neighbouring properties from the perspective of a hypothetical neighbour. This judgment is significant in that local authorities are now to apply the legitimate expectations test to all the disqualifying factors in order to make decisions which are geared towards preserving the value of surrounding properties and the appearance of the area as a whole, ultimately ensuring that the interests of property owners in the surrounding area are adequately protected.Section 7 (1)(b)(ii)(aa) of the National Building Regulations and Building Standards Act (Act) sets out certain disqualifying factors whereby local authorities must refuse a building application, namely where the proposed building would:(aaa) disfigure the area in which it will be erected;(bbb) be unsightly or objectionable; or(ccc) derogate from the value of the adjoining or neighbouring properties.If the local authority has to adhere to these rules, how is it that the cell industry can simply ignore them? I am convinced that the cell industry will not be exempt from this CC judgement.On the health issues, there is ample evidence that EMF radiation is harmful not only to humans but to all life-forms. There are thousands of scientists who have raised serious concerns with the roll-out of this unsafe technology. Even a cursory investigation will reveal this. Our government, which is obliged to protect us, is being derelict in it's duty if they does not take cognisance of these hazards and to protect us from them.In my opinion, the most effective way to fight these amendments is to get the DA out of power in Cape Town and move to have the amendments reversed. It has long been my contention that if there is ever a conflict between business and citizens, in a DA world, business will win every time. The DA is more concerned with protecting business' rights than citizen's rights. The DA (and other political parties) receive massive funding from business and thus their decisions are skewed in favour of business. It's a massive conflict of interest and we, the citizens, are the losers. Having experienced how the PPP operates in favour of business, I am of the view that not only is there a conflict of interest, there is massive corruption at play. Given what we have learnt at the State Capture Commission, this will come as no surprise to any thinking South African.Increasingly, we citizens are feeling powerless in the face of a business-centric government. The PPP, that is meant to protect citizens from being ridden rough-shod by our government, is deeply flawed and is farcical. In light of this, we are seeing increasing levels of social unrest and challenging of authority. This will only get worse. In fact, it may be that the only way we citizens will be able to protect ourselves from the health risks of and devaluing of property values by the cellular industry is to disable or dismantle this infrastructure by ourselves. Frankly, when I read about batteries being stolen from cell mast stations, my heart sings. I would be willing to buy these batteries just to keep that happening.
