Albie Sachs: The Strange Alchemy of Life and Law

There are not many books capable of bringing tears to your eyes before you’ve reached the Preface. Well in Justice Albie Sachs’ latest book: The Strange Alchemy of Life and Law, the unsettling reaction starts with an explanation of the blue dress depicted on the dust jacket.

I am gifted, and there has been no doubt about that. My life is unusual. When I was 12 yrs old, I became converted to Christianity and Gods Spirit became real to me. At the age of 21 my Grandad died and I inherited half of his oil-painting kit etc, and from that time I began to oil-paint and exibit my paintings. What was odd was that the painting and drawing skills required seemed to be instantly available to me. A God-like spirit apparently is behind the schenes of my life, helping me. I also… Continue

Don’t focus on personal negatives, it can hold you back in life.

Most people are negative and tend to focus on the negative aspects of their life. No one likes the negative aspects of their life and it is natural in one's frustration to focus and bemoan these. But doing so will reinforce any negative picture you have of yourself. If you constantly focus on how bad your life is, all the things that are wrong with you, and what you don't have, you eventually come to the conclusion that there is something wrong with you and that you probably don't deserve any… Continue

Avoid these common financial mistakes.

Avoid these common Financial Planning Mistakes.

It is reasonable to assume that you desire financial success for yourself and your family and you may even have your sights set on becoming fabulously wealthy. What ever your goal, unless you win the lotto, you will not

move past average unless you fully understand the elements that contribute to

wealth. There…

Do you really need a financial planner?

Do you need a financial advisor?

The profession of financial planning is relatively new, the average pensioner will tell you that in their youth financial planning was not even a recognisable term. During and after the Second World War the depression made

it virtually impossible for most people to make ends meet, let alone have

surplus money to invest. Access to financial advisors was the domain of…

My first thought was to post this comment in HIV/AIDS group but it is vital that as many people as possible read this book as it is relevant to everyone, without exception. Confining it to one group, excludes others who may never find their way to the HIV/AIDS section. So I hope you will keep it here.

Most interesting book on HIV/AIDS

My interest and studies in HIV Aids Counselling has led me to buy a book called The Wisdom of Whores by a British Epidemiologist called Elizabeth Pisani. Disregard the Wow! what an eye-opener. It highlights the fiddling of stats by UNAIDS to lead the world to believe that Africa is the biggest loser in this epidemic when in fact the whole world is equally as bad. America and Europe are adamant that they are more civilised, sensible and therefore "cleaner". She exposes the UN for stoking the HIV… Continue

Guide to successful job interview as it is known?

Good day all

My concern today is based on interviews processes that we have, based on my opinion i believe interviews dont assess what is meant to, hence we have employees whom are not competent while on the job but mastered their interview. The reason for this is because the questions asked are typically known prior to interview such as:…
