    This was us during the previous loadshedding. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Became quite proficient using my little camping gas stove and hob.

    When it comes to Android development https://mlsdev.com/blog/top-custom-software-development-companies, you can hire one individual to develop your app. Of course, it's best to hire a team of developers to help you scale your app. But the more people you hire, the more efficient and profitable your project will be. This will ensure that your app will keep working smoothly and will keep its customers happy. However, it's important to understand that you'll need more developers as your app grows.

    A South African charity wants you to pay to say f*ck in the office on 30 November
    https://www.businessinsider.co.za/g...g-in-the-office-from-rare-diseases-sa-2021-11
    19 Nov. 2021

    • On 30 November, you should pay to swear in the office, even if that office is remote, says a South African charity.
    • Rare Diseases SA wants to use the money for a procurement fund for high-cost medicine, in areas not covered by the state or medical aid.
    • If you are offended by its "Give a f*ck" campaign, you're focussing on the wrong outrage, it says.
    • A range of non-profits will be hitting up donors on Giving Tuesday.
    "... In pre-pandemic 2019, the organisation urged supporters to "[a]nnoy your colleagues until they lose their shit and then make them pay". This year it is touting virtual swear jars, for those working remotely or in hybrid setups.

    The combined proceeds from those swear jars will go towards "a procurement fund for high cost medicine for patients impacted by rare disease", the organisation says, with the hope to eventually hit R100 million. At that ambitious level, it intends to set up a risk equalisation fund, providing much better access to healthcare for people with rare conditions who are sometimes told potentially life-saving medicines are simply too expensive.

    The fundraising is being handled via GivenGain, the Swiss-registered non-profit, linked to GivingTuesday, an initiative that largely targets Americans every year while they are in a generous mood around their Thanksgiving holiday.

    The premise is simple: swear, pay up, and donate the combined cash, while optionally spreading the word under the banner #SwearToCare. If you happen to be offended by the swearing, Rare Diseases SA will use that as a lobbying opportunity.

    "Are you offended? Well, so are we!" says the organisation, in anticipation of complaints about foul language. "We are offended that in South Africa, we have no formalised Rare Diseases policy. We are offended that our government and medical aids are turning a blind eye to the thousands of patients impacted by a rare disease."

    Simply "giving a f**k can make the world of difference to rare disease patients in South Africa," it argues.

    Rare Diseases SA estimates that millions of South Africans live with untreated or undiagnosed conditions, for which treatment costs are effectively impossible to pay. "

    You can visit SA’s national parks for free next week – and this new digital tour can help
    https://www.businessinsider.co.za/south-africa-national-parks-week-free-access-2021-11
    19 Nov. 2021
    • SA National Parks Week starts on 22 November and offers visitors free entry to the country’s 19 national parks.
    • This year’s campaign coincides with the launch of a website which profiles all South Africa’s national parks.
    • The National Parks Explorer site features videos and photos of each park, while also providing practical information on how to get there and where to stay.
    The National Parks Explorer site, developed by the Discover Africa Group, is a guide to all 19 SANParks with interactive information and videos.

    The site provides practical information, like directions, accommodation, and costs, outside of SA National Parks Week, to potential visitors. Each profile also features a video segment which shows the park’s natural environment, biodiversity, history, activities, and interviews with SANParks staff...

    While SA National Parks Week officially ends on 28 November, free access to Addo, Kgalagadi, Kruger and the Tsitsikamma section of the Garden Route National Park is only valid until Friday 26 November.

    Table Mountain National Park also has an exception, with entry to Boulders Penguin Colony not included in SANParks week."

    A South African driving licence is valid from issue until suspended or cancelled by legal process as a result of medical or behavioural unfitness to hold it ... It does not simply expire!
    A South African licence card however expires every five years, and while it may still be in perfect functional condition, the South African public have been led to believe that they must be renewed, under the misguided belief that without them, we have no valid driving licence

    https://www.sars.gov.za/latest-news/media-release-sars-extends-filing-season-deadline/

    Media Release – SARS extends filing season deadline
    23 November 2021 – The South African Revenue Service (SARS) is pleased with the overwhelming response it has received from taxpayers who have submitted their personal income tax returns since 1 July this year.

    SARS would like to thank these taxpayers for responding to our strategic intent of promoting a culture of voluntary compliance.

    However, to afford other taxpayers the opportunity to comply with their legal requirements, SARS will extend the filing season deadline for non-provisional individual taxpayers from 23 November 2021 to 2 December 2021.
