BUSINESS FORUM: DIAMONDS AFRICA

My love for diamonds started when, as a young bride, I received a dowry. I wanted to spend part of it on a diamond so I contacted the De Beers head office. They were a little nonplussed that I hadn’t gone directly to a store, but I was adamant that my diamond had to come from De Beers. After pestering them for a few weeks, I was given the name of a dealer from whom I could buy a De Beers diamond.

My visit to the dealer changed my life. Over the years he became my mentor and my very good friend. At our first meeting, we came to an agreement that I would sell some of his stones for a small profit while learning about the nuances of the diamond trade. Initially, it was just a hobby but when my children had grown up I decided to turn it into a career. I completed the course offered by the Harry Oppenheimer Diamond Trading School and also qualified as a GIA graduate. It was a beautiful time in my life.

ThisAbility –IS ADHD considered a disability?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that is very common in today’s children. In fact, it is estimated that 8 - 10% of children in SA have ADHD, meaning, not only is it something that parents need to consider managing at home, but more importantly, ADHD is something that teachers need to not only try identity, but to also manage in the classroom. For parents, the reassurance lies in knowing that their child’s teacher is taking their behaviours into account, and teaching them according to their specific learning needs.

#Amajita: Why are men so angry?

The recent spate of rape cases and violence against women beg the question, why are men so angry? Do men feel emasculated in any way or do they feel rejected and ignored? It is well and good to say that men do not talk much hence they act out, but is this reason enough to help us understand why men are angry?

Are juvenile centers the best form of reform for children who commit crimes?

Last week, the country was shocked by the news of a 19-year-old Mondeor High school pupil being stabbed to death by other children/pupils. The suspects have been released into the custody of their parents. But what is going to happen at the end of this case? Will these children be sent to juvenile detention centers?
Is juvenile detention the best reform for children who have committed crimes?
When reports have shown how horrific juvenile centers can be, is it ideal for children to still be sent to these centers? How else can we correct without sending children to prison?
