THE CONNECTING ROOM

According to scientists Families fight at Christmas because of a condition which afflicts them when they are forced to live in close quarters having spent all year apart.
'Hypercopresence' occurs when families are in each other's space 24 hours a day even though they have not seen each other in months.
Over Christmas they have to share the same house, the same bathroom and have to put up with young children stampeding around the place.
Family members become cranky because their autonomy has been taken away from them by the tight schedule.
Professor Melanie Booth-Butterfield, a communications expert at the University of West Virginia, claims that fights occurre when people tried to 'strike out' and reclaim their independence.

THE HOT BOX

The Competition Commission has released its final report on the cost of data.
The commission conducted the inquiry to understand the state of competition in the data services sector.
The focus of the inquiry includes whether prices are higher than they ought to be; the causes and remedies for high prices and the affect of data prices and access to data on low-income earners, rural customers, small businesses and the unemployed.
A report released by the commission in April found that SA’s mobile giants were exploiting the country’s poor.
The report revealed that Vodacom and MTN were charging far more for data in SA than in the other countries in which they operated, with the poor hit the hardest.
The report came two years after the commission began its inquiry, after a widespread public outcry about the high cost of data and mobile operators' failure to carry over unused data.
