The Family Law Database The Family Law Database is a comprehensive collection of the most recent matrimonial law reports from all superior courts across South Africa. Each one of the law reports is concisely summarised into one or two pages. Apart from the summaries, users can also view the original law reports. From as little as R75 per month this database can be a great add-on for those that are already using LexisNexis or Jutastat. It can also provide excellent value for those who find LexisNexis or Jutastat subscription fees to be too exorbitant. The platform was recently launched on 5 October 2018 at a Family Law conference in Sandton that was hosted by Clarks Attorneys (a specialised family law firm). Delegates at the conference expressed that this was a long-awaited technological intervention within this sphere of the law and a must have for any lawyer who deals with family law matters. The Family Law database platform is plain and straightforward. The cases are assorted under various subject categories, and within those categories, the cases are succinctly described in four to five sentences giving you sufficient information about the case to decide whether you want to read the whole document. It also contains a simple and advanced search functionality. Using the advanced search panel, users can limit their search queries to a specific jurisdiction and within a specific topic. All these functionalities can reduce legal research time that would have otherwise taken 5 hours to just 45 minutes. The service is currently only available via P.C. However, it will soon be available across various mobile platforms. Visit www.matrimoniallaw.co.za to create an account or email email@example.com for more information.

Nolan Hoffman says he is always motivated to prove others wrong and that will be his goal when he defends his title in the Bestmed Satellite Classic cycling road race on Saturday. The 110km feature event near Hartbeespoort Dam in North West Province will see cyclists from around the country testing their fitness on a challenging route which includes the infamous Hekpoort climb towards the end of the race. Renowned as a sprinter, the 33-year-old BCX rider showed he could handle a race such as the Satellite Classic by surging first across the finish line last year. "At this stage of my career I always have a lot of motivation for these sorts of races," said the Cape Town Cycle Tour champion. "I'm not necessarily the favourite on the bookies' list, but I like to prove people wrong. "That gives me motivation to do well again and this is a big race in our programme. "It's a hard route and provides a very good indication of where you are at this stage of the season. "If you can get a good result here, it's confirmation that you have done the hard work and are on track for this period of the road-racing season." Hoffman recently won the Tour de Windhoek and although he said that was something of a surprise, he added he always liked to be in good shape at the start of October. "I will be aiming to push hard in the Satellite to see where I am. A win would be good for the confidence and that is a key element for sprinters." While naturally keen to retain the title, Hoffman said BCX had a powerful unit and they would assess the situation on the day. "All of us will be putting our hands up, but the guys are there to help each other. "We have a young guy like Chris Jooste, as well as Steven van Heerden, so we definitely have a few cards to play. "Deciding who is going to be the race leader is always better than just one person having to take responsibility, and we have a number of title contenders." He felt an outfit such as ProTouch, . . .
Books galore were handed over to delighted children in Diepsloot and residents of an old age home in Fourways on 27 September following a successful book drive held at Montecasino (https://www.tsogosun.com/montecasino) in partnership with Fourways Review. The drive celebrated International Literacy Day on 8 September, and all visitors to Montecasino were invited to bring a book to share the love of reading with young and old in the community. Says Mike Page, GM of Montecasino, “The response to our drive was overwhelming and our thanks goes to everyone who came to Montecasino and dropped books into our collection boxes. Books are vital for development, learning and entertainment in the young and old, but unfortunately, in South Africa, SA Statistics states that of the country’s more than 15 million households, only about 50% have any books for leisure reading. The joy of reading should be available to all – and our book drive was an effort to make a difference in our area.” The handover at the old age home saw a team from Montecasino and Fourways Review spending time with the residents, with tea, treats and games, leaving them with lasting memories and 50 new reading material. In Diepsloot, the handover of 150 children’s books from the Montecasino collection and 300 puzzles from Caxton’s People Magazine took place at the Safe-Hub, which is sponsored by Montecasino and based at Muzomuhle Primary School. Primary beneficiaries were Grade 1 classes in the school and children of the Holiness Day Care ECD Centre. The handover team from Montecasino and Fourways review read to the children, shared book stories with them, and treated them to snacks and refreshments. “Favourite books are a treasure in any life – and Montecasino was honoured to be part of this valuable initiative,” says Page.

The Polystyrene Association of SA recently invited officials representing the City of Cape Town, Drakenstein Municipality, JG Afrika and GreenCape on a factory tour to experience first-hand how post-consumer polystyrene collected from local metros, is recycled into lightweight concrete bricks and screed. According to Adri Spangenberg, CEO of the Polystyrene Association of SA, more than 2 000 tons of expanded polystyrene gets recycled annually in South Africa for use in building and construction applications such as the lightweight concrete bricks. “We began supporting lightweight concrete projects in 2012. Over the past six years, the market for this application has seen a tremendous amount of growth and has helped us to grow our recycling efforts exponentially,” Adri says. Owing to the fact that building with lightweight concrete bricks results in considerable savings when it comes to manpower, labour, material and time, municipalities are recognizing this as a good option to help solve both the housing and waste crises in their areas. Whilst initially the cost for a lightweight concrete brick made from recycled polystyrene initially works out the same as for a normal cement brick, developers are able to enjoy significant savings in that it weighs less than half of a conventional brick, has an SABS fire rating and offers excellent insulation against sound and temperature. Furthermore, it takes one day to build a 42 m² home, compared to 3 days when building with conventional bricks. Lightweight bricks also don’t absorb water, meaning that there is no mould and therefore make it a healthier option. According to Adri, they are currently in talks with various municipalities in the Western and Southern Cape about the possibility of building the first Municipal Polystyrene Recycling Hubs. These hubs will be strategically placed in areas to collect post-consumer and post-industrial polystyrene from surrounding areas, with the object of recycling this . . .
2018 has been a volatile year on many fronts, however the property market at Arabella Country Estate in Kleinmond, Western Cape, is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon. Since the beginning of 2018, home sales in the estate have reached over R100 million. “Demand for properties within the estate have soared this year, with more than 20 homes being sold in 2018 already,” says estate manager, Dirk Uys.

The estate has become one of the first in the area to offer full fibre optic access throughout the Estate ensuring high-speed Internet connectivity to all home owners. “Many people moving onto the Estate are doing so to escape the growing stresses and congestion of city life,” says Uys. “We are located just 110km from Cape Town and with the increasing trend towards mobile/home offices and home-based businesses, Arabella has become an attractive alternative, The fibre optic access now gives residents high speed connectivity to be able to work efficiently from home.” Although known worldwide for their exceptional golf course, Arabella Country Estate, also supports a myriad of other outdoor lifestyle activities right on their doorsteps, including mountain biking, trail running, non-motorised water sports on the famous Bot River Lagoon, walking and bird watching.

It’s “Pinktober” and Satin Candy, home to exquisite bras and luxurious lingerie, is partnering with the Pink Drive and are affording all customers the opportunity to have complimentary breast examinations in store and for every Satin Candy Purchase, they will donate R50 towards this charitable cause. “The majority of women who come into our stores for the first time often wear the wrong size bra. Many of them don’t know the health risks that are caused by wearing the incorrect sized bra. These health risks could even lead to breast cancer. We really care about our Satin Candy ladies and we’re excited to partner with the Pink Drive to further educate our community. For every in-store purchase, we will donate R50 towards the Pink Drive as well,” says Satin Candy founder, Sandra Thomas. The Pink Drive team will be doing breast examinations at Satin Candy’s Kloof branch on Tuesday, October 16th and at the Windermere branch on Friday, October 19th, from 10h00 until 14h00. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is observed in October every year. According to the South African National Cancer Registry, one in 27 women in South Africa will be diagnosed with breast cancer and, according to the Cancer Association of South Africa; one in eight stands the chance of getting some type of cancer! The good news is that breast cancer, like other types of cancers, is treatable when detected early. Early detection is absolutely crucial in ensuring effective treatment and a positive outcome. That’s why it’s important for you to examine your breasts regularly and to go for medical check-ups. The Pink Drive KZN Administrator, Janice Benecke, believes the partnership with Satin Candy will go a long way to growing awareness. “Our partnership with one of Durban’s’ leading bra boutiques can definitely help us to extend our reach and accomplish our mission of helping women through early detection, education and support services,” she said.

How can we measure the actual business value created in organisations by diversity amongst our workforces? Rockwell Automation Sub-Saharan Africa Managing Director Barry Elliott discusses. A recent article regarding women in engineering and other STEM-related industries caused a significant furore around whether South Africa should be investing so heavily in attracting women into STEM. This really got me thinking, as it is a topic I feel strongly about. Citing a study suggesting that women are ‘predisposed’ to caring and people-orientated careers, and more focused on family and raising children, the article questions if the returns on investment merit the efforts business and government is directing at women in STEM. Yet there is evidence that is overwhelmingly to the contrary: research conducted into the composition of workforces of companies across the world suggests a clear correlation between diversity, in all its forms, and actual, tangible financial performance. According to a 2018 McKinsey report, Delivering through Diversity, companies in the top quartile for gender diversity across the world were 21% more likely to outperform their bottom-quartile peers on profit margin. This correlation seems especially pronounced at an executive level. And it doesn’t just relate to gender diversity: Assessing ethnic and cultural diversity, McKinsey’s research finds that companies with the most ethnic and cultural diversity are 33% more likely to outperform their peers on profitability. Conversely, companies in the bottom quartile for both gender and ethnic diversity are statistically less likely to achieve above-average financial returns than their industry peers. This supports my own experiences with our teams, and here’s why I think this is so: It’s not that businesses benefit by virtue of being representative on any superficial level alone. Rather, it’s that in being diverse, these companies have access to a wider pool of opinions and . . .
“Education is the mother of all professions”, this is the adage that continues to provide inspiration to countless educators across the world who tirelessly serve the profession with commitment and passion. Educators affect learners’ lives in a positive and profound way; they shape their minds and lay solid foundations for their future career paths. Most educators are not in it for money but see teaching as a calling. As agents for social change they believe theirs is a profession that requires them to go beyond the call of duty. They say they find it immensely fulfilling and rewarding to see their former learners succeeding in their various spheres of influence and making a meaningful contribution to society. It is no exaggeration that virtually every successful person owes it to his or her educator who was always there and willing to lend a hand. In the context of South Africa, the role of educators is a bit demanding as the curriculum has been reconfigured to promote some of the key Constitutional principles. Educators have to ensure they teach learners to understand the importance of critical societal issues such as racial reconciliation, social cohesion, social justice and democratic values. Although educators are passionate and keen to implement the prescribed syllabus, the practical realities and challenges that they encounter every day in the classrooms make it difficult for them to fulfil these objectives. On every given day, educators find themselves having to deal with a range of socio-economic challenges such as poverty, violence, drug and alcohol abuse, teenage pregnancy, overcrowding, poor infrastructure and other related challenges that directly impact on their learners’ performance. Two recent violent incidents highlight the difficulties educators have to deal with: in Zeerust in the North West, a learner stabbed his teacher to death while in Mpumalanga another learner attacked a driver of a school bus whilst the vehicle was in motion. . . .
