About Brenda Wardle’s Views On The Woke Movement In South Africa

Similar with very many other parts of the world, South Africa has an increased demand for internet usage in the last couple of years. People have become more conscious of what is happening around them and through social media, they are able to create awareness and promote cohesion. In the last couple of weeks, the country’s online fraternity has been abuzz with conversations that have been strongly ridiculing some racist remarks that were made by Chris Hart, Justin van Vuuren and Penny Sparrow.

On Hart’s case, he got suspended from his high flying bank job and together with the other two, they are facing charges laid against them. The South African online movement is referred to as Woke. It has become such a conscious movement such that everyone pays attention and takes note of it. Internet users in South Africa are politically and socially conscious at all times and together, they mobilize one another through Twitter because all of them are in a position to see through the hype and see the real issues affecting them.

Although the movement is faceless, it has proved to be very strong when matters related to challenging traditional narratives are concerned and especially in matters where human rights have been oppressed. The movement makes proper use of memes and hashtags to drive their message home. The movement has a very firm stand that whoever stands in the way of true transformation should be dealt with regardless of their race, ethnic background or tribe.

According to Brenda Wardle, a South African prominent analyst on legal matters, the movement is an attestation that society has come of age when matters human rights are concerned. She recognizes the fact that the South African constitution gives all people the power to exercise human rights, but it does not mean that some people use the freedom of speech to infringe on other people’s basic human rights.

She said that all and sundry should acknowledge the fact that freedom of expression is limited by specific clauses in the constitution. According to her, the three accused of spreading racism propaganda unlawfully and intentionally prejudiced the rights of all black South Africans by describing them as equal to apes, monkeys and other animals.

Brenda is not new to the law analysis stage both in her country and abroad. She is a regular in almost all major court cases the most recent being the Oscar Pistorius trial. She has also written extensively on law and procurement procedures in South Africa.

Yeonmi Park’s Journey to Freedom

Yeonmi Park cannot stand emotionless when it comes to telling others about her escape from North Korea. With tears in her eyes and sorrow in her voice, Park told a reporter at The NY Times that people should not laugh and joke about Kim Jong-Un. “They always make jokes about his weight and his haircut,” Yeonmi said. The tears streaked her face as her voice quivered. “People that live in this paradise, this heaven, make the jokes. He has killed people and had 25 million more he can kill. To me, Kim Jong-Un is not a joke.” Yeonmi’s family fled North Korea on a cold night in 2007. Her sister, Eunmi, had left prior with a friend. Her father was in prison, and this left only Yeonmi and her mother to the care of the hired smugglers. The group of men led the pair across the half-frozen landscape. “I was scared. I was hurting. I just kept running and running,” Yeonmi recalled on casey&yeonmi. When she and her mother reached China, one of the men tried to rape Yeonmi. The attempt was diverted by her quick-thining mother, who offered herself in Yeonmi’s place. The two were then sold into slavery to one of the smugglers. Yeonmi was forced to marry their captor and into a life of prostitution. Yeonmi withheld many details from her memoir, In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom. Yeonmi noted that people are held accountable for criminal action through association and due to that fact, she hoped to protect her family by changing names or skipping out on some of the details. Yeonmi and her mother were freed from captivity after a few years, and the two decided to leave for South Korea. They were living in China illegally and feared deportation to North Korea. Yeonmi and her mother were detained in Mongolia for several weeks before they were sent to South Korea. “We could not even have imagined this,” Yeonmi said. “There was a democracy and freedom. There was food. It made me so happy to have food.” Yeonmi undertook studies at a university in Seoul and had begun work as a human rights activist.

Securus Technologies Improves Video Visitation and Communications Between Prisoners and Their Families

No one wants to see their loved ones getting incarcerated, but it happens sometimes. I have had several family members that have been locked behind bars and I know the pain that they are going through. They are more than glad to get visitation from family members, but the reality is that they do not always have the support system they need. Sometimes it can be a great inconvenience for family members on the outside to make that trip to see inmates. Fortunately, Securus Technologies has done something wonderful to improve inmate communication between prisoners and their families. 

The technology that has been brought to the market by Securus makes it easy for people to communicate with their families. People have the ability to see their family members via video visitation without even going to the prison, and I think that this is a wonderful concept. I have been able to utilize this communication to see my family members that are in prison. All that I had to do is set up a Securus account. I already had a webcam so it has become a lot more convenient to connect with family members that are currently incarcerated. I do believe that this is a great new innovative way to effectively utilize technology. 

The great thing about this concept is that multiple family members can all come together and start a video visitation with someone that is in prison. That is a good thing because I have a cousin that has a grandmother that is too sickly to get to a prison. I also have some smaller nieces and nephews that are frightened by that thought of going to a prison. With the Securus Technology I can pull the family together and we can all have a conversation with my cousin at one time. 

Securus also gives people the option to use At-Home visitation through their smart devices. This is excellent because it eliminates the stress and hassle to getting to a prison campus. It can be an eerie place to visit, and I would prefer the At-Home visitation over traveling to a prison. This technology isn’t in all prisons yet because this is still new and innovative. I would hope one day that these video communication systems would be implemented in all prisons. People that are locked away on the inside need to communicate with family to stay encouraged while they are away.

Greg Hague’s From Rags to Riches Story Using The Real Estate Market

Greg Hague was an average guy living the dream of selling homes. He’s from the Scottsdale, Arizona area and loved the market there. One day, he contemplated how he could change the way real estate was sold and make his mark on the industry. He was successful, but he wanted more and he wanted to show people how they could have financial freedom and avoid the feast or famine structure of selling homes. His idea spawned into a mega website and an impressive training program, Real Estate Mavericks, that revolutionized the industry.

Hague was satisfied with the 50 or so listings that his branch in Scottsdale handled. He was the broker and had a few agents that sat underneath him. He was making good money, but the industry is filled with so many ups and downs that he had a hard time keeping good agents. His idea was to take the marketing campaigns that many stores utilize and apply it to the housing market. The theory is that stores use a few items to lure customers into their establishment. While they are in there, they will purchase more than just what’s on sale. The end result is that their bottom line on one item decreases, but their overall revenues are up due to this marketing tactic. Now to apply this to the housing market would be difficult, but he figured it out.

His website, 990 Sells Homes, would be a port for realtors to be able to sell multiple homes. The real purpose is that behind this site is tons of people who will list their home with the hopes of selling it for only $990 in commission. They only way they can sell for that price is if they help market their home. If they hold their own open houses and do various other things to market, they can sell without realtors having to do too much work. If they are the ones that bring the sale to the table, then they will sell their home for less than one thousand dollars. However, if the realtor sells the home, then they will still be required to pay the full commission rate. It’s a gamble that many who want to list their homes are willing to take.

Part of the biggest problem with selling a home is that most people don’t want to pay the commission. This site is meant to unite both buyers and sellers and allow them to help each other. 990 Sells Homes has real estate agents all over the country that represent clients across the states. They quickly respond to the needs of the sellers and also assist buyers. Buyers can scroll through the web pages and find hundreds of homes in their area that are priced to move. It’s a win-win for all involved, the sellers sell way more houses and the buyers have a larger inventory to choose from.

Realtors are able to take their feast or famine commission schedules and utilize the methods of the site to have a steady income. The more volume you have the more homes that can be sold. It’s been an answer to pray for everyone involved in the real estate market.
