Recent landmark legal developments have had a direct bearing on efforts to promote justice for children in conflict with the law, including the relatively new Child Justice Act, The Combating and Prevention of Trafficking Act (2013), The Judicial Matters Amendment Bill and The Criminal Law (Forensic Procedures) Amendment Bill. Leading content and technology solutions provider LexisNexis South Africa has introduced a timely must-have guide for legal practitioners, police officials, probation officers, presiding officers and policy developers who work in the field of child justice. Written in clear and practical language, A Practical Approach to the Child Justice Act is a user-friendly commentary work that includes the legislation, regulations, forms, as well as relevant directives, standards and policies that impact on child justice. There is extensive reference to case law explaining how the courts have interpreted the Child Justice Act, including actual cases as illustration. Diagrams and examples of forms add to the book’s practical value. The authors, who have worked with child offenders and been involved in researching and drafting the legislation, examine the topic in the context of International/Regional Rules and Conventions (CRC), the Constitution of SA (108 of 1996) and the National Policy Framework on Child Justice. Child justice is a work in progress and several possible changes to the Child Justice Act that are in the pipeline are included in brief discussions in the book, which is up to date as at 30 September 2015. Covering all aspects of children in conflict with the law, this publication also investigates aspects related to: the central role of the police official and probation officer, 'young adults' accommodated in child and youth care centres, behaviour management and procedures in the preliminary inquiry. A Practical Approach to the Child Justice Act, (ISBN: 9780409123517) is available through the LexisNexis online bookstore at a . . .
Use your location to get a HelpOut service or taxi to your door in minutes Mobile applications like Tinder and Airbnb continue to provide ways for people to use their location anywhere in the world to find, help, and connect with each other. South Africans have mostly piggy-backed on these foreign-created apps, and with great success, but one local entrepreneur, Francois Briers, still found the need for a more localised and wider offering to meet the needs of South African consumers. “Although many social platforms exist to bring people together in a pleasant and popular way, and are supported by specific services like food, transport and lodging, the various home maintenance and repair issues of everyday life cannot be ignored,” says Briers. “Not much has been done in South Africa to connect consumers with the types of businesses that deal with essential, and sometimes, critical situations. So why not use the ever-growing trend of smartphone apps to make this easier,” he says. To fill this void, Francois launched the HelpOut app, an online tool that connects households with registered servicemen like plumbers, electricians, as well as taxi drivers. With a click of a button they will show up at your door. “’Finding the closest service provider, at the right price, used to mean trawling the internet or referencing the Yellow Pages,” says Francois, “not to mention the time wasted waiting for the service provider to arrive.” “Now it's as simple as downloading a free and user-friendly app, that offers an array of the service providers closest to you and getting emergency work done, or a quote, near instantly!” he says. Building on the success of location services used by other apps, the service offers great advantages to the service providers. More important to note, though, is that when the service provider benefits, these benefits extend to the consumer as well. ’During our research phase, servicemen like DSTV and alarm installers told us . . .
WebScripto, a Pretoria based Website Design Company has recently announced the launch of its Social Responsibility Project aimed at creating 2 free websites per month to qualifying duly registered NPO’s. The aim of this website design project is to enable NPO’s to get a professional website, designed in order to give them online exposure and to reach more people with a view to create public awareness. “Greater public awareness will lead to possible better funding and a better understanding of challenges people and NPO’s alike, face in South Africa”, says Eitel Bock, CEO of WebScripto. “Designing and building a website for an NPO on a pro bono basis is but one small drop in an always empty bucket. The more companies work together to cement Social Responsibility in South Africa, the more sustainable NPO’s projects will become”, says Eitel Bock. WebScripto has since the launch of the project during January 2016, received numerous requests for website designs and development from various NPO’s and NGO’ says Eitel Bock. We evaluate every request based on the actual needs of the NPO and the need of the people who stand to benefit from its services. Assisting NPO’s does not only include the actual website design, but also the building and development thereof. “During the development of the website we focus on the target audience as well as the specific functionality that is required to make the website successful” says Eitel Bock, CEO of Webscripto. Registered NPO’s who would want to benefit from this initiative and would like to request assistance with a website, designed and developed can contact WebScripto on its website at www.webscripto.co.za.

JOHANNESBURG, 10 FEBRUARY 2016 – Perfect weather greeted over 7500 eager ‘warriors’ to the first event of South Africa’s largest OCR series, the 2016 Jeep Warrior Series, which took place from 6 – 7 February, at the Hakahana Trails, Pretoria. The series consists of 8 events with three prized elite categories, all involving mud, challenging obstacles, adventure and fun for all fitness levels and ages, from amateur to professional athletes. The categories are Rookie Elite (15 obstacles over 5km), Commando Elite (22 obstacles over 10km) and Black Ops Elite (30 obstacles over 15km). The toughest being the Black Ops Elite. Opening the series, Jeep Team sponsored competitor, Thomas van Tonder, defeated fierce competition and a brutal course to claim the men’s Black Ops Elite title, with Trish Bahlmann winning the Women’s Black Ops Elite event. The toughest of the three distances is the Black Ops Elite, which meets World-OCR racing standards and attracts South Africa’s top OCR athletes. Black Ops Elite is also the only event in South Africa that doubles as a qualifier for the OCR World Championships. Last year’s Black Ops Elite series winners, Claude Eksteen and Hanneke Dannhauser, both fell victim to one of the toughest obstacles on the day – Breaking Point - a long sequence of ropes, rings, chains and monkey bars that tests upper body strength and co-ordination. Eksteen had set a blistering pace from the start, leading the Men’s race by an impressive 1m40s ahead of 2nd placed, Thomas Van Tonder, until Breaking Point proved true to its name, with Eksteen unable to complete the obstacle. This gave Van Tonder the break he needed to secure victory in 1h38m. Michael Joubert (2013 winner) finished 2nd in 1hr45m, with Greg Avierinos 3rd in 1hr50m. Black Ops Elite Men’s winner Thomas Van Tonder said: “This was no easy race so I’m so stoked to take the win. The course was definitely one of the harder courses I’ve experienced in the Jeep Warrior Series, with the . . .

It takes 7 seconds to make a first impression Arguably one of the key moments in any hiring process is the interview. This defining and equally nerve-racking juncture imparts quite a fair amount of pressure on both the hiring manager and the candidate. The former’s objective is to thoroughly assess aptitude, attitude and chemistry, for the latter it’s putting their best foot forward while simultaneously attempting to make a favourable and lasting impression. Add the competitive environment, contrived atmosphere and rigid time constraints and this be- comes quite the tricky ask. Which is why despite the somewhat unrealistic expectations on the efficacy of interviews, The Talent Boom - a global executive search recruitment agency - believes that injecting creativity into this demanding process will lead to better results. There are a few ways in which this can be done. A serious time to play Introducing creativity and a relaxed sense of play into the process can break up the monotony of repetitive and overly rehearsed interview scenarios for both the interviewer and candidate. In addition to providing an open and interactive environment, this playful interaction further serves to dis- arm the candidate and allow the interviewer to unlock deeper and more insightful answers and assessments. Location, location, location A real estate dictum for a reason, location can add real value to the interview process, particularly when said location is unexpected or taken out of the typical workplace context. Unusual environments stimulate fresh perspectives to the benefit of both the hiring manager and candidate. Interactive ice-breaker An interactive game - specifically designed with the interview process in mind - serves to not only break the ice in a fun, interactive way, but also assist the hiring manager with quickly assessing the candidate on various levels while at the same time allowing the candidate to make a more accurate, unique and - more . . .

(Pretoria) – Some 460 pupils from Orefile Primary School in Olievenhoutbosch had a weight lifted from their shoulders when they received sturdy backpacks to help get their school year off to a positive start. The grade 4 to 7 learners were given the waterproof schoolbags, which were sponsored by the Forest Hill City shopping centre in Centurion, during a fun-filled ceremony on Friday. Dancers and a marimba band from Pan African Music and Theatre Arts got the entertainment off to a lively start, while the highlight was certainly a performance by 2015 Idols winner Karabo Mogane. The 24-year-old, who volunteered to do his first ever school gig, performed five songs from his debut album Love is a Verb. Speaking after the event, school principal Clever Shikwambane said he was grateful to the sponsors and performers who made the day possible. “They have shown love to the kids and gestures like this show that corporate South Africa does care. This gift of quality schoolbags will go a long way to helping the children and their families.” Forest Hill City marketing manager Annah Moremela said it was imperative for the centre to give back to the community it served. “Education is top of our corporate social investment list and our role is to support our youth and complement public sector initiatives. “Our youth are the future and it is indeed in our hands to pave the path to a better South Africa.” Orefile is one of the schools built as part of national government’s Strategic Integrated Projects programme. It became the first green school in Gauteng when it opened its doors in 2013. Built using alternative construction technologies, it was established to alleviate overcrowding issues at Philena Primary School, a prefabricated school that served the underprivileged community. Also present at Friday’s handover to inspect the school’s progress were Johannesburg North district director for education Sipho Mkhulisi and member of the Tshwane mayoral . . .
