Why President Thabo Mbeki is considering pay rises Ernie Els has fallen
into second place in the world rankings at Tiger Wood's expense. The 28
year old Woods and a former Swedish 24 year old nanny exchanged marriage
vows this week in Barbados. The wedding decorations included 500 roses
at the end of the aisles and a four-tier wedding cake. Guests dined on
flying fish, macaroni pie and shrimp cocktail. Sounds nice doesn't it?

A place where you can set the time by watching whales swim by. A village that offers all the good things in life. A place you would want to call home! In "Focus on" we take a closer look at Simonstown, Western Cape, South Africa also home of the South African navy.
Some of us might be able to "afford" it to dine on "flying
fish" and "macaroni pie" and for others of us it is purely
"bad" - In Have fun we share 10 things that will help
you to remember to lose weight, an article that might be too late for
some of us as summer is here but then again, there is always Monday!

|>> SA and Namibia face Zimbabwe's land fate|

As in Zimbabwe, the vast majority of land in South Africa and Namibia is owned by white farmers, descendants of settlers who under colonial rule were given choice land.
President Robert Mugabe seized on this historical injustice to justify
the forced seizure of 4 000 of Zimbabwe's 4 500 white-owned commercial
farms that were redistributed to blacks, wreaking havoc in the agriculture
sector in what was once southern Africa's breadbasket economy.

|>> Be in the frontline|
The real challenge for Estate Agents is to find a software application (programme) that supports all facets of the industry, cutting out the need to duplicate day-to-day work. CyberAgent answers to all the estate agencies needs.
This week we take a closer look at the "The New Development" module within the CyberAgent application.
The New Development Module module has been developed to assist estate agencies to market and sell New Development properties. Up until now agencies had to contact us whereby we had to develop web pages to accommodate these new developments at a cost. These developments were also only available on the agencies website only and not on all linked websites (www.cyberprop.com, www.real-estate-south-africa.com, www.tiscali.co.za and www.sundaytimesproperty.com).
This module will enable agencies to add the following information about each and every development:
