South Africa, March 24th, 2018 - A new loan product that could change the way you borrow money. Traditionally, if you wanted a loan you would have to walk into a high street bank, complete reams of paperwork and wait weeks for the money to hit your account. However, now online loan companies like Wonga are offering quicker solutions which allow consumers to take back control of their finances. There are many reasons you might need a personal loan, however you may find that searching for one with the right repayment period proves difficult. Wonga traditionally offer payday loans, which you pay back usually within a month. This is ideal if you have a sudden, quick bill or payment to process, but not if you want a bit longer to repay. Other loan companies might offer personal loans that last several years – you can get 3, 5 or even 10 year personal loans. This, on the other end of the spectrum, means you are saddled with this debt for much longer. What customers often want is something in between. This consumer need resulted in the creation of the Wonga personal loan which lasts up to 6 months. First time customers can receive anything up to R4000 which is paid back monthly in 6 equal installments. You can use Wonga’s website slider to decide how much you can borrow and for how long, offering 100% transparency for customers – something which Wonga pride themselves on. The 6 month personal loan provides the flexibility of longer term credit without the long term commitment required by other lenders. For instance, nedbank.co.za offers R4000 loans for a minimum of 12 months which results in a total repayment of R6261. Longer loan terms are perfect for some customers, but for some this is the type of long term commitment some borrowers aren’t looking for. If you want to repay the loan sooner, Wonga operates a policy that encourages early repayment on loans to help customers avoid paying too much interest. This is in an effort to help consumers . . .
Johannesburg, Gauteng, 22 March 2018, Servest are in the process of testing new battery operated landscaping equipment. These include leaf blowers, brush cutters, hedgers, trimmers and pruners, which are all battery operated. “Servest Landscaping and Turf are on par with international best practices in improving productivity, sustainability, and the assurance of aligning business practices to that of international standards”, says, Andre Ferreira, Sales and Marketing Director at Servest. The client, where Servest are currently testing this equipment, is amazed with the low noise levels of the blowers. This was tested outside the boardroom where a meeting was in progress without the participants even knowing that garden machinery was in use. According to an article in BizCommunity, ‘noise is a natural consequence of whatever we do. It forms part of our everyday lives and, we often just tolerate it. Nevertheless, noise has the capacity to cause conflict between those who are generating it and those who are victims of it. However, noise nuisance is a totally different animal and includes operating machinery, or power tools that cause a noise nuisance, among other things’. According to the case of Laskey and Another v Showzone CC and Others (5988/06)  ZAWCHC 50;  4 All SA 1162 (C) (30 October 2006) there are two different kinds of noise, namely, disturbing noise and noise nuisance. A disturbing noise is objective and is defined as a scientifically measurable noise level, and generally compared to the existing ambient noise level. A noise nuisance is a subjective measure, and is defined as any noise that disturbs or impairs, or may disturb or impair the convenience or peace of any person’. [parts of excerpts extracted from https://goo.gl/YbtHVB], Ferreira adds that “the benefits of the battery operated machines include low noise levels, no fuel costs, maintenance costs and long term cost savings. We believe these factors are a value-added . . .

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.

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, 15 March 2018 In the era of communication and collaboration, noise reaches everywhere, including your bottom line. In today’s open offices, noise is the biggest distraction to getting work done. Modern work spaces promote collaboration but in increasingly crowded spaces, the sounds created by hard surfaces and fewer walls can make it hard to focus. Plantronics brings immersive headsets along with an intelligent multi-sensory experience that uses natural sounds and complementary visuals to dynamically adapt to distracting speech and ever-changing noise to keep an office in tune. Hero Solutions: Voyager 6200 UC, Voyager Focus UC, Blackwire 5200, Savi 700 For on-the-go workers, which we’re seeing more and more of, even in South Africa, noise in mobile environments makes it difficult for them, and their teammates back in the office, to hear, be heard and connect to what matters most. For this type of work style, Plantronics has products that easily connect to multiple devices and cancel out noise on both sides of the conversation. Hero Solutions: Voyager 8200 UC, Voyager 5200 UC, Voyager 6200 UC In contact centers, noise is a huge problem. With so many conversations happening at once, focus can sometimes falter, employee comfort can drop, and the security of sensitive customer information could potentially be compromised. Plantronics has purpose-built headsets designed for the Contact Center, but with hundreds – even thousands of headsets to manage, dealing with individual needs can be labor-intensive. Through SaaS, Plantronics delivers insights, simplifies headset adoption and lets IT respond to needs without interruption to the CX, all from one place. Hero Solutions: Encore Pro 500/700, Manager Pro Wherever work happens, noise stands in the way. With Plantronics’ portfolio of collaboration solutions, it doesn’t have to.

GAUTENG, PRETORIA, - Toyota #Warrior3, powered by Reebok, is coming to Tierpoort Adventure Farm in Tierpoort, situated just outside Pretoria East, so if you want to get out and enjoy the outdoors while getting a serious workout in, it may be high time you look into signing up for an obstacle course race. This full, two-day event, happening on the 17th and 18th March 2018, will have the three traditional Warrior distances: 15km Black Ops with 35 Obstacles, 10km Commando with 22 Obstacles, 5km Rookie with 15 Obstacles, plus Reebok sprint races over the 2 days - individual sprint race on Saturday and team sprints on the Sunday. This venue is a trail runner’s dream. The hilly and technical terrain will take warriors over some of the best trails that Gauteng has to offer, but if you are like most of us and don’t really enjoy running, the appeal of obstacle course racing, to most, is that you hardly notice you're running, because you're more focused on dealing with intense, oftentimes military-inspired obstacles that will challenge your mind and body. Every race at Warrior is all about having a good time with your friends and making your weekend fun and active. Mud Monster, Eliminator, Terminator, Intimidator and Maze are just a few of the names given to obstacles at this family-friendly event, which gives anyone and everyone the chance to experience the thrill of Obstacle Course Racing, the fastest growing sports code in the country. Some of the highlights over the weekend include a brand-new Tower of Rage; it’s tall and scary. The much-loved Mud Monster will now be the all-new Mud Mile – the clue is in the name. The short, sharp Reebok Sprint Races, which are really exciting to watch but very tough to do, will be a little longer at 250m with 10 obstacles, a few of which will be natural. This is considered to be the best sprint course yet by the organisers. There will be two kids races on Saturday and on Sunday. WarriorRic will start the kids off under . . .
