South Africa is a country extremely sensitive to race. Race is what divides us according to who we associate with, where we live, who we vote for and our immediate first impressions of people that we deal with. All South Africans carry the baggage of a devastating shared past that continues to be a huge stumbling block to the success of an incredible nation. For decades we were conditioned to think in terms of our skin colour. Apartheid preached that persons of colour were inferior. Such was the iron grip of the Nationalist Party on the media that privileged white South Africans were not reminded on a daily basis of the crime happening in their own neighbourhoods - job reservation, inferior education, economic hardship and daily persecution of our fellow citizens continued in a mad rush to certain ruin. It was state television, during the 16 June 1976 Soweto riots, that allowed ordinary South Africans a glimpse of the groundswell of resistance against an ever oppressive government and which could have been the opening of the door that led to the release of political prisoners, the unbanning of the ANC and Communist Party, the release of Nelson Mandela and, finally, true democracy in 1994. We, as citizens have been a little bit tardy since then and have allowed our politicians, media and business to slip back into undemocratic and divisive ways. We are now constantly bombarded with divisive language as politicians try to score points by calling everyone out for being racist. The number of taboo words increases and the media have rushed to the party by further increasing the publicity that these politicians crave as we rush towards another crucial set of municipal elections in 2016. We need a movement, a groundswell of ordinary citizens that will say; "Enough - I love my neighbour, I love my country and I refuse to allow anyone to continue promoting this artificial division." The first part of the pledge to go Race Free is; "You pledge to not . . .
Up until recently MyPR.co.za has only made a summary of each article available via our numerous RSS feeds. We now make the Full Press Release text available via our RSS feeds. AND, for the busy publisher using Wordpress, we have a way for you to now automatically aggregate niche content from MyPR and encourage you to follow the model that MyCapeTown has pioneered. MyCapeTown is based on the Wordpress Content Management Platform and utilises an autoblogging platform called WP Robot and the 'Cape Town' tagged RSS feed to automatically publish press releases from MyPR to MyCapeTown The steps are simple: You must be running your site on Wordpress Purchase and install WP Robot HERE * If you are bewildered, help is at hand - for $5.00 I will install WP Robot and set up three campaigns for you. * Current prices range from $89 (Basic) to $129 (Full) to $329.00 (Developer). As a dyed in the wool tight-ass I hummed and hawed about spending money on WP Robot but, after due consideration, went big and bought the developer's version. (Scroll down for links to more auto blogging plugins). My reasons for buying the developer version were: Once off price and lifetime updates. The ability to give proper accreditation and not just 'steal' other peoples work. The fact that it is keyword or RSS based and can be tweaked to whatever niche that I am targeting. The once off price I paid was equivalent to one month of the monthly salary I would have paid a data capturer. Back to a practical example: Once you have installed WP Robot you have the choice of fetching articles from MyPR (and many other sources), republishing on your site as a draft or immediately all under remote control and as regular as you deem fit, whilst you sleep, eat and play. Your WP Robot won't take holidays or day's off sick, ask for an increase or use your resources without your permission. Now that is a sweet deal for a tight-ass such as myself.

Coastal freeway link in great shape for holiday traffic Pretoria, 7 December 2015. Travelling on the N2 freeway that runs from Cape Town along the eastern seaboard to Durban should be trouble-free during the festive season and road users will not experience any delays caused by roadworks. Vusi Mona the Head of Communications of the South African National Roads Agency says there are no major construction activities underway on the artery that links the major coastal resorts of the Western and Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. “As a result, our engineers have rated the 550km stretch between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth expected condition as fair to good barring any unforeseen major traffic incidents or weather conditions,” says Mona. The road consists of a single carriageway with climbing lanes. Drivers are urged to look out for stray animals on the roadside and pedestrian activity especially near Grabouw, George, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. SANRAL also calls on road users to follow important safety tips when they take to the country’s main roads during the festive season. “The main message is to remember that a road is a shared space and that you should be respectful towards tour fellow road users.” Speed limits are clearly indicated on the 21 450 km of roads managed by SANRAL in all nine provinces. “These are maximum limits and drivers should adjust their speed according to conditions such as rain or visibility,” says Mona. Road users are encouraged to take a break during long distance journeys to prevent fatigue and lack of concentration. The automated pay system on SANRAL’s toll roads has been operational since Friday, 4 December. Road users with electronic tags will no longer have to stop at participating toll plazas on the N2 South Coast road at the Oribi, Umtentweni and Izotsha plazas. “Automated payment makes it much easier for motorists who undertake long distance journeys,” says Mona. “They will not have to wait in queues at toll . . .

Former world masters cross-country champion Nico Pfitzenmaier will lead the field in the men's solo category at the three-day RECM Knysna 200 mountain bike race, which starts in the Garden Route town on Saturday. Pfitzenmaier, who took all three stages en route to the overall win alongside Renay Groustra in the team category last year, will be without his partner due to conflicting racing commitments this weekend. "We had a great race last year," said the German-born Pfitzenmaier. "The conditions were quite tough through the rain and mud, so the more technically demanding parts suited us." The Cape Town-based rider will now be on the hunt for his first individual win after podiuming in this category before. While stage racing has traditionally been a team event, events like the RECM Knysna 200 have begun to see a growing solo field for a variety of reasons. "It's not always easy to find a partner who has the same endurance and skill level you have," said Pfitzenmaier, who races in the colours of Dorma. "Sometimes it's quite relaxing to race solo and not have to worry about anybody else." One of the riders he may have to worry about, however, is Plettenberg Bay resident Kevin Evans. Despite announcing his impending retirement from the sport, the four-time national marathon champion will be a fierce contender on his home trails. But Pfitzenmaier is not perturbed by his competition. "I want to enjoy the trails and the scenic terrain – everything on top of that is a bonus." Although his form has been consistent this season, a series of mechanicals and bad luck has seen him relegated to the runner-up spot in various high-profile races. "At joBerg2c I had a bad mechanical on the second stage, where I lost a lot of time and diminished my chances of winning the solo category," he said. At the Cape Epic, Pfitzenmaier broke his hand with two days to go and a vehicle hit his partner Robert Sim, but the pair still managed second overall in the masters . . .
Kevin Evans sealed what could be one of the last wins of his professional career when he and teammate Pieter Seyffert claimed the overall victory in the second edition of the PwC Great Zuurberg Trek mountain bike race near Port Elizabeth on Sunday. Evans and Seyffert (Biogen Volcan-Altech Autopage) were one second behind defending champion Andrew Hill and partner Chris Wolhuter (TIB Insurance) in the 50km final stage that finished at Zuurberg Mountain Village. The duo, who hail from Plettenberg Bay and Johannesburg respectively, clocked 2:26:52 to secure the title in 8:50:21. Despite taking their second stage win, Hill and Wolhuter could not erase the deficit of more than a minute created by the overnight leaders on the opening day. They retained their runner-up spot in the general classification throughout to finish in 8:51:38. The rising Isostar pairing of Jurgens Uys and Jason Meaton rounded out the daily podium in 2:29:36 to remain third in the standings in 9:22:00. Multiple South African marathon champion Evans said the win in the three-day Eastern Cape race was a special one for him. "It's possibly one of my last ones, so it's nice to tick off the Zuurberg Trek as one of the races that I've won." Seyffert said it was an honour to race alongside Evans in his final season as a pro. "And then to take the win just tops it off." Seyffert, who finished second with Hanco Kachelhoffer in the Old Mutual joBerg2c earlier this month, said he and Evans had been climbing well since taking the opening stage. "So with our lead and knowing the pass was coming, we decided not to take any unnecessary risks on the descents today. Chris and Andrew pushed very hard on the technical single-track sections but we kept our cool and luckily had no mechanicals." The foursome rolled together with Meaton and Uys for most of the day. However, on the final climb, Evans and Seyffert upped the tempo to drop the youngsters. Then it was left to the top two . . .
