Comtel Communications, a Cape Town based Telecommunications Company have launched Unlimited Calling, a fixed-line product for both residential and business clients. This new offering is an addition to the company’s services that include Fibre & Wireless Connectivity, Hosted PBX & VoIP, and rolling out Open Access Fibre Networks into Multi-Tenant Developments and Neighbourhoods. As the name suggests, clients are able to make as many calls as they like during a month at a fixed cost. Greg Cooper, Chief Operating Officer at Comtel Communications, says that they have kept their monthly fixed rate to a minimum in order to benefit homeowners, SME’s and corporates. Existing clients qualify for even further discounts depending on their packages and lines. Clients with Comtel Fibre, for example, qualify for a 10% monthly discount on the unlimited calling fixed rate. Adds Cooper, “With the explosion of Fibre roll-outs across the country, an ever increasing number of clients are having access to unrivalled speeds and quality. It’s an exciting time for both clients and service providers!” Remember the days when you waited until after 8 to call a loved one overseas and then kept it to a minimum to save on call costs, or when you’d make sure the call was ‘reverse charges’? Comtel offers unlimited calls to most international destinations, and to any National mobile number and fixed-line operator in South Africa (i.e. Vodacom, MTN, Cell C, Telkom, Neotel, etc.) Existing clients can be set up remotely within 24 hours and approved new clients who qualify for the service will be able to get dialing in 10 working days or less, as per the standard installation. Those protracted international conference calls no longer need to be cut short, and your teenager can get another 5 000 words in to the friend she saw a few hours ago at school, without breaking the bank.

March 2016 - Some health problems, such as colds, flu, dry skin or eczema, arthritis and back pain are triggered or aggravated by the cold weather we experience in the winter months. Here’s how to help your body deal with these cold weather ailments. Colds and flu – the common cold, including chest and head cold, as well as seasonal flu are caused by viruses. While flu symptoms are similar to that of cold symptoms, they include fever, headache and muscle soreness. With one’s immunity at a low point once targeted by the flu virus, you are left susceptible to inflammation which can turn a bout of flu into full blown pneumonia. Supplementing with a natural anti-inflammatory such as Buchu, can assist in the prevention of inflammation which is responsible for worsening the degree of one’s illness significantly. Buchu is also a source of Vitamin A, an ideal vitamin in the guard against viral infections such as cold and flu. Painful joints/rheumatic disease – arthritis and other rheumatic diseases are a family of illnesses that can cause inflammation in the joints and pain in the surrounding structures. Arthritis is a serious auto-immune disease or joint disorder that involves one or more of the bone joints being inflamed. Quercitin, a naturally occurring antioxidant in Buchu, has proven to be highly successful in aiding the relief of arthritis pain as it has demonstrated impressive anti-inflammatory properties. Dry skin or eczema – eczema is a recurring, non-infectious, inflammatory skin condition characterised by itchy, dry, inflamed, flaky and reddened skin. Extensive scientific research has proven that formulated organic Buchu oil, which has potent anti-inflammatory, antifungal and antibacterial properties, assists in the successful management of eczema in addition to bringing immediate relief to the inflammation and itchiness symptomatic of eczema. Urinary tract infections – the winter season sees a surge in urinary tract infections (UTIs) due to the . . .
A new board of directors has taken control of Treoc International Limited following the resignation of Founder Coert Coetzee from all directorship and management positions. The new and highly experienced team has been appointed to restructure and position Treoc International for future growth. Treoc, the prominent property education group, with head office in Somerset West, Cape Town, has been at the forefront of property, Trust and wealth education in South Africa for more than a decade. The new Board is made up of CEO Ryno Venter, CFO Johannes Maree, Chairman Jacques Magliolo and non-executives Philip La Grange, Dr. Bruce Malumane, Marianne Snyman and Munya Shamuyarira. Coert Coetzee, who recently indicated his desire to step aside from heading up the company in any way, publically said: “Treoc must adapt to the new corporate governance structures of South Africa. This is a critical time for Treoc and to achieve its true growth potential Treoc needs ambitious and highly diligent CEO and CFO, with strong support of a new Board; one which meets all King III corporate governance criteria.” Ryno Venter, who has accepted the position as CEO, is a highly qualified legal professional with previous senior positions and vast experience in heading up complex legal Trust structures in the property industry. Treoc is one of the largest private companies in South Africa which administer trust structures for private clients. Coetzee commented: “We are very grateful to Ryno for his input as CEO, and more especially the pivotal role he will play during the forthcoming re-positioning of the group.” The appointment of non-executives was rapidly followed with the appointment of King III sub-committees. The new chairpersons of the committees have started their duties in establishing corporate goals in the audit, remuneration and risk fields. Venter says: “We are absolutely delighted to have people of such high calibre joining us at Treoc. All the directors . . .
There is now very little doubt that in the year ahead the banks will be forced to be more careful than ever before in the granting of mortgage bonds, says Dawn van Alphen, CEO of the Cape based bond originators, Bond Magic. “Faced with rising interest rates and an economy that is very close to being in a full-blooded recession as well as with consumers countrywide finding it more and more difficult to meet their commitments, the banks are conscious that the risks attached to loans of all kinds have increased significantly,” said van Alphen. “They will, therefore, be checking even more scrupulously a whole range of factors relating to the applicant, including the security of his employment: the extent of his debts and other commitments,, his credit records of the last five years or more and, perhaps the most crucial of all, the percentage mortgage bond that is required. Any evidence of reckless or irresponsible spending will make the securing of a loan still more difficult.” “In the coming year 100% loans may well be restricted to First Time Home Buyers and very few will qualify for sub-prime loans. The vast majority of borrowers will, in fact, find themselves paying0,5% to 2% above prime –and any applicant whose accounts show that, after paying his bond and meeting his other commitments, he has very little surplus cash will probably have to scale down his loan requirements.” In these conditions, said van Alphen, “although this sounds self-serving”, the role of the bond originator will be more crucial than ever—especially if, as every good originator does, he or she deals with ALL the banks (to get the best available deals). "It is important to realize that origination companies like Bond Magic offer a FREE prequalification service to potential home buyers. This ensures that the applicant avoids any disappointment in the feedback from the banks and. it significantly increases his chance of obtaining a mortgage bond. The originator, who is highly . . .
Developers claim they are setting a higher benchmark in residential security. Living up to the promise that they made at the launch of their 11ha Constantia Nek Estate in December last year, the developers Mark Cockburn and David Delbridge, are installing a security fencing configuration that ,they say, will set a new benchmark for this type of perimeter protection. The work is well under way, and together with the installation of all the services (including a fibre optic backbone) is on target for completion by early fourth quarter this year. The fencing is in two parallel rows, both 2.6 metres high including the electrification. These enclose and are bounded on both sides by cleared “no-go” areas which will be monitored around the clock by 23 state- of-the- art Bosch Thermal Imaging wide lens cameras. These, says Cockburn, are backed up and supported by sophisticated hardware and software, which provides clear, detailed imagery in all weather conditions as well as throughout the night. They will be monitored by two security teams on and off-site, with armed response capability. The concept of parallel ‘off site’ monitoring by dedicated professionals is, he says, an important aspect of the whole security configuration. “The imagery will be identified, analysed and reported on within a matter of seconds," said Cockburn, adding that, “There is always a danger with hi-tech, modern equipment of this kind that it will be unsightly—but this perimeter fence is aesthetically appropriate to the site: Despite being very tough, it is slim, elegant and dark black in colour.” The attractive entrance lodge and gate which will be sited close to the site’s lowest point on the Hout Bay—Constantia Nek road will also be guarded and monitored round the clock. To date, only three months after the launch, over half of the 40 erven in the development have already been sold. Homeowners will build their homes in accordance with “extremely well considered” architectural . . .

Strap in this Easter, urges emergency service provider: The use of safety belts in motor vehicles is without doubt responsible for saving the lives of countless South Africans every year. Those planning to travel by roads over the upcoming holiday period should therefore always make a point of wearing a seatbelt, urges emergency medical services provider Netcare 911. “A number of studies have shown that, in the case of a vehicle accident, injuries are prevented and lives saved when adults and children are properly restrained,” asserts Shalen Ramduth, Netcare 911 general manager of national operations. “Despite this, all too many South Africans continue to drive without wearing seatbelts, and, perhaps of still greater concern, many fail to ensure that their children are safely buckled up.” “Thousands of South Africans are killed or injured on our roads each year. These fatalities could be reduced considerably if all drivers took heed of some basic safety advice, such as ensuring that all vehicle occupants wear safety belts.” Seatbelts save lives Ramduth explains that the principle behind the use of car safety belts for adults and safety seats for children comes down to basic physics: a vehicle that moves forward at a constant speed and then comes to a dead stop, will result in any unfastened objects being propelled forward with enormous force and at the same speed that the vehicle had been moving. “Fitted safety belts and child restraints absorb the energy caused by a rapid deceleration, which usually occurs during a motor vehicle accident, and also considerably reduces the risk of occupants being ejected from the vehicle,” he adds. René Grobler, who heads up Netcare Milpark Hospital’s Netcare Trauma Injury Prevention (TIP) programme, an awareness and educational project aimed at reducing the incidence of traumatic injuries among South Africans, agrees that seatbelts can afford a significant measure of protection to the occupants of a vehicle . . .
