Author : Bitcoins Basics 101 PDF Ebook by DAVID DODGE and BRIAN DIXON For example, as mentioned, as more people snatch up bitcoins, the higher their value rises. That is, with more demand, the price will go up. Beyond that, it's going to be interesting to see younger generations begin to study the Bitcoin markets to come up with different ways to look at financial activity. Bitcoin Deflation And Economic Activity. While the future of Bitcoin does indeed look bright, there are some economists who are thinking ahead and say that the cryptocurrency may have a problem in the future due to deflation. The amount of bitcoins that will be produced is fixed at 21 million. This supply of BTC will be used to buy more and more goods and services while it could end up in deflation on a major scale. For example, say you come up with a product or service that costs you 1 BTC to produce. You hope to sell it for 2.5 BTC to make a hefty profit. You go to work setting things up, but when you launch to market, your product or service is only worth .5 BTC due to deflation that has happened while you were producing your product or setting up your service to sell online - and this could be a major stumbling block. As this happens, people are going to be more apt to hold onto their bitcoins because they will become more valuable. However, if no one is using their bitcoins for transactions, the . . .
JOHANNESBURG, DECEMBER 3, 2018 - Trees are very important as they provide our planet with essential environmental services while also giving us jobs, products and fun. To celebrate the many fantastic things about forests, both natural and planted, the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) is running a competition ahead of International Day of Forests on 21 March 2019. The prize: a trip to Rome! According to FAO, "the 2019 theme for the International Day of Forests is ‘Forests and Education’ and we want the world to know how you educate children and youth about the importance of trees and forests. Today, when more than half the world’s population lives in cities and are increasingly disconnected from nature, it is more essential than ever to bring an understanding and awareness of forests and their benefits into children’s lives at an early age.” FAO is inviting teachers, educators and parents to produce and submit a short one-minute video that shows how you impart a better understanding about the importance of forests and trees for our planet’s future. This could be a video of a traditional class, nature walk into a wooded area or plantation, a local park with trees, an artwork, a song or music lesson or even an exercise class. The Paper Manufacturers Association of South Africa (PAMSA) and Forestry South Africa have put together some resources with specific facts on the South African forestry and forest product sector. Visit the special page on www.forestryexplained.co.za for more information. Deadline for entries is 15 December 2018. (We recognise that this is after schools break up for the SA summer holidays. It could however be a fun activity for these last few weeks of school.) How do I enter? To enter the contest, just follow these steps: Make a short video that shows how you teach children and youth about the importance of forests. The video should not exceed 1 minute and can be produced with any professional or non-professional device . . .
In March this year South African ultra-runners, Ryan Sandes and Ryno Griesel, braved sub-zero temperatures, frost bite, exhaustion and starvation to set a new Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) FKT in a time of 24days 3hours 24min covering a staggering distance of 1504k. Joining Ryan and Ryno on their journey was a SPOT Gen 3 satellite tracking device, which proved an integral tool in not only their safety but also the filming of their documentary – Lessons from the Edge – by film maker Dean Leslie from Wandering Fever. “Logistically, this was one of the most complex shoots I have ever done. Having the SPOT tracking and being able to physically see the dot moving was integral to this trip. In fact I would be inclined to say that it would have been almost impossible to have documented their journey without SPOT!” says Dean Leslie from Wandering Fever. “When we had no comms for days on end it was our only source of “communication” with Ryan and Ryno. We were able to see from the live tracking exactly where they were and if they were safe or not, along with that we were also able to plan our weeks and gauge what sort of distances they were covering each day.” The film sees Sandes and Griesel traverse heavily snow-covered mountains and experience incredibly extreme weather conditions unusual for this time of the year along the way. They suffered frost-bitten fingers, serious tummy bugs, breathing difficulties and a couple of near death experiences. A constant on the route, however, was the incredibly welcoming spirit of the Nepalese people who truly embody the spirit of Namaste, and welcomed the both of them into their homes. “There was no way we could have attempted a challenge like this without SPOT and its tracking,” explains Ryno Griesel. “SPOT allowed us share our journey in real time with the rest of the world, logistically plan our routes and allowed us the confidence to push boundaries, knowing that help was always on hand!” Lessons from the Edge makes it . . .

Author : Bitcoins Basics 101 PDF Ebook by DAVID DODGE and BRIAN DIXON With a population well over 1 billion people, the acceptance of Bitcoin in this market is a good sign that it's going to continue increasing in value. 3. Startups - Also, the fact that a lot of startups are being created to fulfill needs in the Bitcoin market is further proof that not only are bitcoins going to be around, a lot of smart people are betting that they're going to increase in value. While tens of millions of dollars have been invested in Bitcoin startups over the last couple years, this number is expected to increase as even more people try to monetize the growing Bitcoin market. 4. New Exchanges - When you look at the number of Bitcoin Exchanges that are starting up around the world, it's yet another sign that Bitcoin is here to say. Some websites count the current total of Bitcoin Marketplaces online to around fifty currently in early 2014, with new ones popping up all the time. This growth shows that many people are betting that Bitcoin is going to be around for years to come. 5. Mining Difficulty - With so much competition and computing power going into Bitcoin mining these days, it's become nearly impossible for a single individual to mine enough bitcoins to break even, let alone make a profit. This, of course, drives the value of bitcoins up even more because it is so difficult to . . .
The future of work: Should Africa resist automation in the workplace? By Devan Moonsamy CEO of The ICHAF Training Institute There has been a lot of buzz about the ‘future of work’ recently. There is major concern over who will become redundant and how this will happen – and rightly so. Wits recently conducted a review of research on the topic and found that most authors studying the issues are in fact negative or at least quite concerned about the impact of technology on employment prospects and society in general. People do benefit from various technologies. We have all experienced how they make our lives better in certain ways, for example, in healthcare. However, redundancy remains a major fear associated with the increased use of technology in the workplace. In Australia and the UK, for example, checkout staff at grocers and other major retailers have almost disappeared. Instead, checkouts at stores like Target (which is much like our Edgars) and Woolworths in Australia (similar to our shop of the same name, but a different company) are self-service. Petrol pumps are also self-service. If South Africa follows suit, this spells doom for many, many workers in these industries, and the majority of them are black and those most in need of employment opportunities. The Edcon group (which includes Edgars, CNA and Jet, among others) has about 39 000 employees, while the Shoprite group (Checkers, House and Home and others) has 147 000 employees, some of whom are in other African countries. We naturally feel afraid of the prospect of any of these people losing their jobs. We need many, many more jobs in South Africa. Fewer jobs is not a viable solution to our economic challenges, and so certain technologies can do more harm than good. If major retailers and petrol companies decide to go the automated checkout route in South Africa, we will likely have massive protests and even boycotts. We could expect that workers themselves – as well as customers – will . . .
Past Cape Winemakers Guild Protégé is Young Winemaker of the Year The title of 2018 Diner’s Club Young Winemaker of the Year awarded to a former protégé of the Cape Winemakers Guild is a feather in the cap of this forerunner of skills development in the South African wine industry. Rudger van Wyk who participated in the Cape Winemakers Guild Protégé Programme before joining Stark-Condé as assistant winemaker in 2016, is the Guild’s first past protégé to be crowned Young Winemaker of the Year. Van Wyk earned the title in this well-respected annual competition now in its 18th year, with his Stark-Condé 2016 Stellenbosch Syrah. He was promoted to winemaker at Stark-Condé earlier this year. During his time as a protégé he honed his skills under the mentorship of Abrie Beeslaar at Kanonkop and Bernhard Veller at Nitida. Van Wyk looks back at his days as a protégé with fond memories: ‘Through the programme my wine knowledge increased greatly and it served as a stepping stone to producing fine wine. My internship also instilled a great passion for the wine industry and the work culture of striving to produce a great wine.’ Founded in 2006, the Cape Winemakers Guild Protégé Programme has established itself as the most successful skills development programme in the South African wine industry. Driven by the single-minded vision of transformation, the programme has seen a total of 24 talented oenology and viticulture graduates garnering valuable experience while enjoying the rare opportunity of working side by side with members of the Guild. To date there are 20 former protégés pursuing promising careers in the wine industry – from private wine estates to larger corporate companies. ‘The Cape Winemakers Guild is passionate about transforming our industry through cultivating and nurturing young winemakers and viticulturists of excellence. This is an ongoing process that needs to be supported by the wine industry. After twelve years of the Protégé Programme we . . .

Johannesburg , 30 November 2018 - To step into the shoes of another person can be the most challenging thing for any human being, however they will tell you that the experience is almost always a rewarding education. Such is the case in the cleaning profession, which is often times a thankless job for many, particularly in South Africa, where we are accustomed to "getting ‘help’. The cleaning industry is estimated to be worth around R6 - 10 billion and not regulated in terms of policy, save for salaries of the workers. There is however an association, which was constituted as recently as 1987 and which is dedicated to developing and setting appropriate standards for the contract cleaning industry [http://www.ncca.co.za/]. The cleaning industry forms part of the services sector, which employs close to 71.8% of the South African population [https://goo.gl/f3L1d4] and it is a profession that allows for entry level jobs for the most low-level skilled persons. “It is for this reason that Servest has set up its Training Academy, to ensure that new recruits are trained in the do’s and don’ts, particularly ensuring that they understand that the cleaning business is not about a task, but about hygiene in spaces, and health and wellness of people, says George Ndhlovu, Operations Director of Cleaning at Servest. The fact that the training facility is in-house, enables Servest to roll out training at any given time, without the process being hampered by budgetary constraints. “We instil the understanding in our colleagues, that their work is specialised and not just a job - for example in the healthcare sector, the nature of the work is hazardous and in the hospitality environment, it is specialised. In understanding this, it gives integrity to the profession and the person undertaking the task”, he says. In addition to investing in the skills and development of colleagues, Servest’s philosophy is to continuously upgrade its equipment and technology, to that of . . .
