Why working from home in SA is a good idea

Remote working via the internet could boost South Africa’s economy by R17 billion annually, according to a study.

Mobile workspace solutions company Citrix and the London-based Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) have studied the potential economic impact of a ‘work from anywhere’ culture in South Africa.

Just over 1 250 South Africans took part in the survey with respondents representing knowledge workers such as architects, software engineers, lawyers, doctors, accountants and academics.

Chief findings of the study indicate that remote working via the internet could add 0.4% to gross domestic product and cut commuting costs by R39.5 billion.

Workers could then also save 320 million hours spent travelling to and from work annually, according to the study.

“More interesting for me was the focus on flexible working potentially enabling employers to tap people that have skills; people who are currently not engaged economically or economically active because they can’t work in a formal workspace,” Brendan McAravey, country manager of Citrix South Africa, told Fin24. “For example, a large portion of that is housewives or househusbands,” he said.
Remote working via the internet could boost South Africa’s economy by R17bn annually, according to a study.

The continued uproar by Christians about how atheists 'force' their belief systems on them is a misconstruction of what is actually happened. The truth is that for centuries/decades, Christians forced others to listen to them, and when atheists started saying "Sorry, that's not true, " Christians assumed their defence was offence...

QUOTE: ACROSS the world, people who reject all religious belief or profess secular humanism are facing ever worse discrimination and persecution, but the existence and legitimacy of such ideas is becoming more widely known and accepted.

QUOTE: In common with lots of other reports on the subject, it noted that many countries still prescribe draconian penalties for religious dissent, through laws that bar blasphemy against the prevailing religions or "apostasy" from Islam. Some 19 countries punish their citizens for apostasy, and in 12 of those countries it is punishable by death. In Pakistan, the death sentence can be imposed for blasphemy, for which the threshold is very low. In all, 55 countries (including several Western ones) had laws against blasphemy; the perceived offence could lead to prison terms in 39 countries and execution in six.

QUOTE: Aside from all that ghastliness, the report detected a new trend, a "marked increase" in the specific targeting of atheists and humanists, which was a kind of back-handed acknowledgement of the reality that such beliefs existed and were spreading. Saudi Arabia had enacted a new law equating atheism with terrorism. In Malaysia, Prime Minister Najib Razak had branded "humanism and secularism as well as liberalism" as deviant. And in Egypt, the youth ministry had launched an organised campaign against non-belief among the young, designed to spread awareness of the "dangers of atheism" and the "threat to society" that it posed. 
ACROSS the world, people who reject all religious belief or profess secular humanism are facing ever worse discrimination and persecution,...

"Long story short: `su` is really a broken concept. It will given you kind of a shell, and it's fine to use it for that, but it's not a full login, and shouldn't be mistaken for one."
Bullshit!! Lennart's doing nothing but declaring 'su' as broken so he can "fix" it.  Su is not a broken concept. It's well established in Unix, Irix, Linux, etc. and anyone with a modicum of *nix experience will tell you it works just fine. To be fair, I'll list the problems I've had with 'su' right here..... 1) oh yeah, I haven't ever in over 20 years of administrating *nix systems had a single problem with 'su'. 
With this pull request systemd now support a su command functional and can create privileged sessions, that are fully isolated from the original session. Su is a classic UNIX command and used more than 30 years. Why su is bad? Lennart Poettering says: Well, there have been long discussions about ...

Seriously good coffee shop with a steampunk theme. Has been rated "the world's best coffee shop". Service can be a bit slow, because they're always very busy.

Deluxe Coffeeworks roasts my favourite coffee in Cape Town. This is the main roastery in Roodehek Street. It has a seriously cool "hipster" vibe, and shares The Yard with The Dogs Bollocks and The Witches Tits. Seriously good place to grab a coffee.

Dodgy bar. Not for the faint-hearted. Good for hardcore alcoholics and partiers. Gambling machines in the back.

One of Cape Town's oldest pubs, and one of the best to get pub grub at a decent price. Not a gastropub. Lots of screens if you're a sports fan (I'm not). They do a good sunday lunch.
