With a string of long weekends and school term breaks fast approaching, many families are contemplating if a last-minute road trip would make for a memorable Easter journey. With Cape Country Routes’ (CCR) broad-ranging activities, with most establishments catering for both an easy drive from major cities, but also for a slightly longer haul on routes, the collection makes for epic road trips and memorable family holidays. CCR is a collection of owner-managed accommodation and activity establishments located along South Africa’s popular road travel routes. While remaining water conscious during the dry year, the group - all water-sufficient due to strategic, pro-active saving methods - continues to offer individuals and families character-rich city escapes that benchmark great holidays. CCR encourages travellers looking for Easter holiday travelling ideas to discover the Western and Eastern Cape’s best gems. For a relaxing break from daily routines, and something to get the kids rearing to go, opt for a quick drive from the Mother City to the Whale Route for a coastal exploration. Or, if you’re in for the ‘long haul’, take your trip to the Eastern Cape, toward the Addo Elephant National Park. Here are four recommendations to make your Easter one for the books: 1.

A Groundbreaking Concept to Facilitate Employment For Candidates And Companies Via Video Durban, KwaZulu Natal: Today, First Interview launched a brand-new portal aimed at putting job seekers in front of employers - without actually putting them in front of each other! Job hunters simply upload a two-minute video introducing themselves to prospective employers – who can then view the video at their leisure. This short-cuts the entire recruitment process by cutting out time-consuming CV-sifting and initial screening. If employers like what they see and hear on the video, they can contact the job hunter via the portal, requesting their CV and personal details. Candidates have no idea who has viewed their profiles and have no access to employer contact details, making the entire process confidential and secure. First Interview founder and CEO, Angelique Laaks, says, “Our portal is free for both job seekers and employers. It’s simple and easy to use, and it’s local. Most importantly, however, it allows employers to ‘meet’ the job seekers in two minutes - without having to scan through CVs, set interview times, schedule time with HR, and so on. It’s also easier for job seekers, as they don’t have to take time off work, or arrange transport to and from screening interviews.” The whole idea behind First Interview is that it helps prospective employers get a feel for who a candidate actually is – something that’s hard to gauge from a personality-free, one-dimensional CV. The portal is highly beneficial for all job seekers, but particularly for new graduates, and those looking for front-line positions in the customer service, hospitality and retail sectors. These are candidates who are hired for who they are - their personality and how they present themselves – and is more important than a list of qualifications on a CV. First Interview is a free portal that provides the missing link in the recruitment process by changing the selection procedure and allowing . . .
Johannesburg - 03/16/2018. 7 ways you can be a green hero. By Penny Ntuli, communications director of Tetra Pak South Africa It seems nowadays everyone is talking about climate change and how important it is to protect the environment. But what can we actually do about it? Governments and businesses focus on long term, sustainable solutions but it’s not just their job to save the environment that we all rely on. We all live on planet Earth and it’s our job to help protect it for our children and their children. That’s why our packaging containers use only natural, renewable, and recyclable resources to help leave future generations a clean and safe environment. Businesses like ours, and governments, can make a really big impact in making the world a better place for all but it’s everyone’s mission to contribute. Here are seven small ways you can actively take part to help make a big difference: Contribute to the recycling movement Probably the easiest way to help is to recycle – it’s the commonest environment friendly action that people perform. It means you can avoid overusing valuable natural resources and start separating garbage by putting aside carton packages for recycling. Check your labels Many companies like ours try to make going green a viable option for you by using products made from natural, renewable, and recyclable resources. We let you know by marking the product packaging so that all you have to do is check the package when you’re at the supermarket. Look for the sign that it’s made from easily bio-degradable materials or to see if they originate from forests that are managed in sustainable ways that protect trees for the future. We mark this with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) label. It’s proof that the product you are buying is made using wood from responsible sources.

Ethereum is the forked Ethereum which modified the blockchain and consensus rules after the bug in the DAO contract resulted in the stolen funds at http://www.coindesk.com/dao-attacked-code-issue-leads-60-million-ether-theft/. This was met with joy by some, but criticism by others due to the modifying the immutable record of what had happened and trying to reverse it, when the problem was in the poorly coded smart contract rather than Ethereum itself. The change penalized the attacker by preventing them withdrawing funds on this version.

Motivated by his father, University of Johannesburg's Odwa Nkunjana showed his potential by crossing for two tries in their intense Varsity Cup rugby derby against Wits in Johannesburg on Monday. The 22-year-old wing was instrumental in helping his team to a crucial 29-17 victory in the encounter at Wits after they led 21-10 at halftime. The result took UJ to fourth on the log, two points behind Wits, but with a match in hand. They are well placed to make a push for the semifinals in their last two games - against UP-Tuks and University of Cape Town. A third year transportation management student, Nkunjana was pleased to receive recognition by being named the Player that Rocks for the match. "Yes, that was very nice and in a way it's a tribute to my dad who has always motivated me during my rugby career," he said. "He was very good at athletics in his younger days, but did not have the opportunities to achieve what he could have. "So I am really playing for him and it was a boost to receive the Player that Rocks award." Growing up in Witbank, Nkunjana matriculated from Monument High School in Krugersdorp before moving to UJ, where he is living on campus in Auckland Park. In his first year of Varsity Cup rugby, having previously played for the Young Guns, he said he was enjoying his rugby at the university. "The coaches here [led by head coach Werner Janse van Rensburg] are really great and they are helping us a lot. "The big thing I have learnt is that I need to improve my defence. In my first few years it was a bit weak, but I have worked hard on that and improved a lot." He added that he was also concentrating on his communication skills. "I know I don't talk a lot on defence, so that is something I am working on as well as my defending in one-on-one situations." With Blitzboks sevens legend Seabelo Senatla as his role model, Nkunjana said his eventual goal was to try to earn a provincial contract. "I really look up to . . .
