Since the beginning of our working careers we have known that work should remain separate from our personal lives. You leave work at work, and home at home, and never the two shall meet. Businesses have always lived by the credo that your personal life may not impact on your working day.
The reality however, is that businesses need people to turn the wheels of commerce, and people have feelings. Individual relationships will create the corporate climate. This means that the person who…

Doesn't matter what you call it, teacher and school evaluation is stressful. STRESSFUL! Because teachers work on their own so much, having someone else come into their classroom and watch them is stressful. Knowing that that person is also evaluating you - deliberately looking at your strengths and weaknesses - is doubly so.
Over the years, teacher evaluation has become a bit of a buzz word, a promise of a means to an end, a way to fix what is wrong with the…
It is with an increasing sense of dismay that I've watched the textbook debacle unfold. In addition to that particular scandal, there is another textbook scandal brewing - one about the selection of authorised textbooks.
In this scandal, it would seem that there is yet more corruption at the highest levels. I say this because of the lack of transparency regarding the issue of the process of the selection of textbooks that occurs in Pretoria. I have chosen not to comment on it thus…Continue

The significance of anti-virus can't be rejected at any cost in our daily lives. Nobody actually desires his personal computer being at the mercy of several computer system attacks and also computer viruses such as Trojan viruses. It is because these types of PC viruses are incredibly harmful for our computer system as well as any data that is within all of them. You will need to understand concurrently that people are not able to simply keep protected from the PC infections entirely.…Continue

I was taught most of the fundamentals about life by my Father and therefore I learnt to think like a boy. It certainly has served me well in many aspects, however I believe that I learnt to copy the social behaviour of men and never really got to know how to appreciate the intrigue of being a woman. I spent most of my free time with my Dad at sports clubs and pubs and was able to interact with people much older than myself. This was another thing that has stood me in good stead. I was never…Continue

You told me, Miss Teacher, that I needed to be a man. But what kind of man did you want me to be? You mocked and humiliated me at six years old, because men play rugby, and I refused. Did you want me to be a humiliated man?
Maybe you wanted a man compliant, who would cram himself into your narrow ideal: A rugby playing man. Not the moffie* you named me in front of the kindergarten class.
Stop crying, you said. You can’t be a…Continue

From a purely external point of view there is no will; and to find will in any phenomenon requires a certain empathy; we observe a man's actions and place ourselves partly but not wholly in his position; or we act, and place ourselves partly in the position of an outsider. ~T. S. Elliot
We hear a lot about empathy these days as if it is the driving force to help others. But is it? The word empathy was only created somewhere around 1905. Does that…Continue
