Most people I have asked now for over 34 years if they are / were creative have responded, “No I am not creative. I can’t draw”.

Alternative to Designated Smoking Areas

Thank you everyone for your input and advice!! I acknowledge Des's information regarding the Law making provision for the protection of non-smokers, and the possibility of Designated smoking areas. Should a company decise it would designate a smoking area: A allocation of space with adaquate ventilation must be provided, Health and Safety regulations then come into play, fire extinguishers etc., extra cleaning, all and expense to accomodate a vice, which, when each smoker looks deep inside… Continue

Fingerprinting

As it is no secret, I am Job seeking. Anyway, last week, I went for an interview at an Employment Agency and was enthusiastically greeted when I entered, whereby, the lady who welcomed me in asks me to take a seat, and I thanked her and took a seat. She then said, no love, would you please take that seat “I will sit here” o.k. I sort of felt a quizzical look come on and moved.  Well, knock me over with a feather! I was asked to place my right thumb on this contraption (that looked a bit like…

Routine Panic

Dr James Dobson, author and I personallypsychologist, refers to our hectic lifestyle as “routine panic”. Always rushing, results in the continuous release of the hormone adrenaline. This hormone puts the body and mind into a constant state of alertness. This creates continuous stress (psychological pressure).



It is of the utmost importance to take things slowly and systematically. Don’t rush! Work as fast as you can, but don’t rush your work. You will just stress yourself and…

Smoke breaks taken by Office Employees

I was confronted with a dilima where previous Management allowed employees to take ad hoc smoke breaks, which meant that when the craving came, they went!  Not only the Office workers but also the factory employees, they would pop outside and puff-away.. If an office worker takes a smoke break it holds up their work. If a production worker takes a break, production is covered by a mate, if the foreman spots him he gets reprimanded . Not a cool situation.

 

As a smoker myself, I…

MEN INTERESTED IN WORKING WITH YOUNG CHILDREN (birth to 6 year olds)!!!!!???????!!!!!

" Eek! A Male! Treating all men as potential predators doesn't make our kids safer." This was the headline of a recent Wall Street Journal article by Lenore Skenazy.



Society tend to think that men that are interested in working with young children are pedofiles.  I read an article about men working at early childhood development (ECD) sites overseas.  They are not allowed to change the…

Are Learnership tax deductions over? SARS won't say.

I have heard via the rumour mill that the learnerships tax deductions stop this year - can anyone confirm or deny this?

 Even SARS doesn't seem to know the answer after about 7 calls/being on hold and bumped around the dept (as they do when you phone in with difficult questions).
