Relationship Desk

While men argue that women lose respect and become arrogant when they earn more, women believe that such issues would not exist if men were doing their part and being providers? But what does this mean for the economics of a relationship? Are men uncomfortable with women having more money than them? Does this make the man jealous? Is a man capable of being jealous of his woman? Who should be more successful than the other?

THIS ABILITY: THE LOCAL APP FOR DOMINO’S PIZZA , THAT HELPS STREAMING THE WEB EASIER FOR THOSE LIVING WITH DISABILITIES

The Web was ultimately designed to cater for everyone, everywhere and on any device, using any language and regardless of their ability. This means the Web must remove all barriers to communication and interaction that many physically impaired people face.

Web accessibility is the practice of removing barriers for people with disabilities on the web. Most commonly it refers to those who have temporary or permanent vision issues, people who cannot see the screen and rely on things like screen readers or larger text to access site content.

MINING SAFETY IN AFRICA

Hardly two weeks since the conclusion of the Invest In Africa Mining Indaba, we’ve heard of two major mine accidents on the continent (Zimbabwe and Liberia). This begs the question, when discussing investment in mining how much of a factor does the safety of workers play? Are Africa’s minerals a curse to its people and a blessing to investors? Is our government compromising the safety of workers for investments – how severe are the punishments given to mining companies that do not comply with safety standards in Africa?

AmaJita: Erectile Dysfunction

Nicole Jennings - spokesperson for Pharma Dynamics (a pharmaceutical firm specialising in men’s health)

Ground breaking research conducted at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles confirms that daily exercise can improve sexual function in “all” men who suffer from erectile dysfunction (ED). What makes the research so significant is that for the first time a study was done that represented a racially diverse group of men.
In a country such as South Africa where the majority (78%) of men that are 20 years and older are black, the findings are significant - about 2.7 million men in SA over the age of 40 (roughly about 40%) suffer from ED (see press release below for more info).
Why are men suffering in silence when erectile dysfunction has such a huge impact on their lives? Are the enough avenues for them to explore when trying to deal with this problem? Why are men not talking about this – is it shameful?

GUEST: Dr Shingaai Mutambira – Urologist
