Step aside mom bloggers, there is a new Super Dads blog in town. James is a National Government researcher involved in cutting-edge work in medicine, law and longevity. Recipient of numerous national awards he firmly demonstrates how academics must have practical application.
A father of 3 children he hosts the show SuperDads, dedicated to empowering Men, and encouraging “boys” to learn how to become Men. The outcome, to reintegrate fathers as protectors and participants in the beginning and developments of their families. There is no “lip service” in this show, you learn to lead by example by changing yourself first (man or woman). It’s called male authenticity and is definitely under attack for the lady decades of the ascendancy of redefining masculinity to weaken this.
James uncovers and explains the science, discusses some products, services and available adventures out there for Dads and families to experience in South Africa.

How SARS helps with my Service Dog - Disability Tax Incentives

Today I am at the South African Revenue Service (SARS) of South Africa. I sit down with Ms Renni Naidoo, specialist Specialist: Legal Counsel at SARS. I interview her discussing how SARS provides a very special medical and disability tax incentive. I ask questions on how you the Taxpayers are able to potentially help me and my Service Dog Pebble.

Often, I get asked about nnEMF and the SASSA disability, personally, SASSA doesn’t provide much, and it is an uphill obstacle at times. You get far more supportive value from the taxpayer through the SARS medical and disability tax incentives. This applies to yourself, your spouse, children and or any dependent living with you and in your care.

Prize giveaway - Having a Güdsheet

Finally a biodegradable toilet paper soft for one’s bottom, great for the environment and awesomely giving to those in need. In today’s episode, I interview Ruan from Gudco [ gudco.co.za ] on the Güdsheet. I talk behind the science on what is needed environmentally to have a Güdsheet, along with how to increase one’s longevity in having a Güdsheet.

The ease of toilet paper is often taken for granted but this soft eco-warrior solution using sugarcane is absolutely why we loved Gudsheet!

Corporate Social Responsibility - for those with low dopamine: Why Güdsheet? Millions of South Africans don't have access to a toilet, or even toilet paper. Poor sanitation is the strong proponent of diarrhoea related diseases that kill hundreds of people every day.
Through your purchases, Güdsheet helps provide Toilets & Toilet Paper to underprivileged schools & crèches in need. Why toilets & TP? Because they provide dignity, health and an improved quality of life.

SARS - R&D Tax Incentives

Today I am at the South African Revenue Service (SARS) of South Africa. I sit down with Mr. Andrew Wes one of the panel review members. SARS and the Dept. of Science and Technology (DST) put together a great supportive and incentive package for research and development in South Africa. The incentive package provides:
• A deduction equal to 150% of expenditure incurred directly for Research & Development and,
• An accelerated depreciation deduction (that is, 50:30:20) for capital expenditure incurred on machinery or plant used for R&D.
This is really a big deal and a great potential support option for researchers such as myself. Govt. has pulled back funding particularly for post-graduate researchers such as myself. However, this grant enables the private sector to lend support and get a massive thank you the taxpayers for doing so.

Prize Giveaway - GroPro - Most epic product I have ever reviewed & BEST for Cannabis growth

Sharn from GroPro is definitely in the top 3 products I have ever had the chance to review. It is really amazing. It is not just a worm farm but is also a gardening made easy solution. Water and space saving. Organic. Beautiful.

I believe it is the best value for money as far as domestic garden systems go. No irrigation needed, can be installed in your flat, is pretty and your children will love it as it also functions as a decorative art piece.

I talk about some important biohacks for your GroPro as well as how it is the best system if you wish to grow your own Cannabis. Yes, Cannabis has become decriminalized for private use and growth in South Africa. Using the GroPro, you will be able to produce a better bioavailable crop versus lab grown.

I don’t discuss the Cannabis protocol but it will be available on Patreon in the future.
