We should all fly the flag, sing the national anthem with pride, learn the Diski Dance and celebrate Football Fridays.“Bring along your Diski Dance moves, as well as your knowledge about all things football. Most of all though, bring all your uniquely South African passion and energy.”The People’s Bus provided an interactive 10-minute tour including Fifa World Cup team facts and trivia, foosball table fun and a mini cinema showing unforgettable moments from previous tournaments.

At that time, the world was unsure about what to think of South Africa, with many different messages being sent out by various sources. These did very little to build the country’s brand and it was evident that to attract tourism and investment there was a need to co-ordinate marketing initiatives to make them more effective.This led to the creation of the IMC, whose main objective is the marketing of South Africa through the Brand South Africa campaign. There are many benefits to having a consolidated brand image, with the most important being that a consistent Brand South Africa message creates strategic advantages in terms of trade and tourism for the country in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

Styled and cut and it was beautiful. Second wig i have bought and this is a nice colour. Matched the picture perfectly. Even though this is a synthetic wig i love it. The hair doesn’t even look noticeably fake strait away. The cap fits tightly and stays on easily. Easy to trim and fit to your hair line. Really good choice if you are wanting a new look for a night out or dressup. The wig is gorgeous, and comes in excellent packaging. However, it tangled after my first wear and every time i use it i have to spend an hour brushing out the tangles. I even have to keep the rollers when i’m not wearing it, or else it will tangle just sitting on the wig stand. Worth the money if you don’t mind the maintenance. Really nice wig and great quality for the price. Doesn’t really look like the picture tho – the red is not as vibrant and the wig itself is not that voluminous. Really hard to wear it like the picture too since the lace pics through.

Tags:#health wearables Related Posts How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… By now it’s clear that the structural shift in healthcare is well underway. One of the best articles I’ve read lately to capture this was Dave Chase’s Forbes piece: “Health Plan Industry’s Worst Nightmare: Employers Realizing They Are Actually The Insurance Company,” where he argues that “any company over 100 employees or so is an insurance company in all but name.” Pretty bold, but I wouldn’t say he’s far off.What’s the monetary value of a health plan? Chase regularly advises payers on creative thinking about ways to capitalize on healthcare’s trillion-dollar transformation from volume to value and how to avoid the “zero-sum game thinking.” He goes on to argue that health plans really don’t do anything that can’t be done better by an algorithm. (Cue the entrance of Amazon Health.)And health is, of course, no longer just about your yearly checkups and making your pantry’s contents reflect the food pyramid. People want to know more about their food, make exercise enjoyable, and balance not only physical health, but also mental and emotional health. It’s not so much just diet and exercise — it’s about holistic wellness programs.Employers and insurance providers are taking note. If the concept of health is growing in individuals’ eyes, so must insurance. Standard health benefits (i.e., just your doctor visits, be it regular care or trips in response to a problem) are increasingly being replaced by more comprehensive wellness programs looking to drive better outcomes as patients and as customers. And one of the biggest catalysts behind this is not new policy or social change — it’s tech.A Quick Look at Workplace WellnessWellness programs — adding in programming to make employees’ health goals more robust and attainable — are a popular way for employers to try to mitigate the rising costs of healthcare. So popular, in fact, that workplace wellness is now a nearly $40 billion industry worldwide, according to the Global Wellness Institute. To keep employees engaged, companies are constantly innovating new ways to implement wellness in the workplace.Take a look at Indiana-based Draper, Inc. for example, which was voted 2014’s healthiest workplace in the United States by Healthiest Employers, LLC. It boasts an entire wellness park on company property. The organization holds companywide challenges for losing weight and hosts programs, such as Weight Watchers and Zumba classes, for its employees.Zappos, which has always been admired for its dedication to workplace wellness, takes it a step further by offering free gym memberships and reimbursing employees who participate in marathons. Company leaders even take employees for fun fitness adventures, like laser tag, and give employees extra downtime in the form of Recess Tuesdays.Because the ultimate objective of a health insurer’s wellness program is more specific, the success of these programs relies heavily on health-related data from patients. Today, obtaining and utilizing this data is possible at a larger scale than ever before, thanks to continuously evolving healthcare and consumer technologies.Using Technology to Deliver on Health OutcomesIt’s no wonder why wellness programs have become so widely adopted over the last few decades. For employers, getting their employees engaged helps improve productivity, reduce time off due to medical concerns, and ease the company’s overall health costs. In 2012, a Gallup study showed that employees who improved their well-being cost their companies up to 41 percent less in overall health-related expenditures.For health insurers, health and wellness programs can significantly reduce premiums, particularly for chronically ill and at-risk patients. Such programs often help patients deal with illness more successfully and prevent unnecessary hospital visits, saving insurance companies hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.And, of course, individuals appreciate the programs’ goals to boost their own health. With so much time spent at the office, it can be difficult to prioritize nutrition and exercise; wellness programs demonstrate to employees that their health matters in their employers’ eyes, giving them greater incentive and more permission to take care of themselves. It’s a win-win-win for all parties.But that doesn’t mean wellness plans are perfect — there’s still plenty of room for growth, and that’s where today’s tech advancements come in.Even the most innovative wellness program is only as good as the data that drives it. Today, that means utilizing innovative technologies, such as wearable devices and interactive software platforms, which can passively collect massive amounts of data about each consumer’s wellness.The good thing about fitness wearables is that many people already own and use them regularly — especially younger generations, like Millennials. In fact, their sales are predicted to skyrocket over the next few years. For people who don’t, many employers do or would offer discounts or other incentives for using them. Wearables are also the most significant sources of what insurers crave most: reliable data about enrollees’ health and fitness habits so they can more accurately assess risks. Some providers are already creating initiatives to pair devices with plans.As employers and health insurers continue to implement more engaging wellness programs, technology will continue to shape the way these programs affect consumers’ lives. Three of the most significant changes will be:1. Data-Driven IncentivesThe ability to cultivate and utilize enormous amounts of data is a huge benefit to employers and health insurers, but it will also help employees make the most of the programs available to them. As wearable devices keep track of their health and fitness efforts, they can also alert employees about program features and incentives that matter most to them.For instance, if employees are only a couple hundred steps away from their 10,000-step goal, then a reminder can motivate them to push through the last leg and complete the program. By making it easier to participate, technology can help drive more employees to pay more attention to their wellness.2. More Robust EngagementMental well-being is as important as physical health when it comes to an employee’s holistic wellness. That’s why some programs utilize data to help employees address non-work-related hardships that could be affecting their mental or emotional health. The data mined from wearable devices and participation in wellness programs offers unprecedented insight into what individuals need most for the sake of their mental and physical well-being.This could mean assistance with financial hardships or with providing care to a loved one at home so employees have more time to focus on their mental and physical well-being. Not only will this help improve an employee’s holistic wellness, but it will also generate lifelong loyalty to the employer.3. A More Enjoyable ExperienceEmployee health benefits are undeniably important, but they can be more of a yawn-worthy chore than an exciting addition to an employee’s work experience. Different aspects of today’s technology stand to improve upon that. If employees have already woven their wearables into their everyday life, for instance, taking advantage of their employer’s wellness program can become a seamless experience; they don’t have to go out of their way to make updates or review progress toward goals.Employers and providers can take this a step further, aiming not just for convenience but for actual fun. Gamification is huge for apps, especially health apps — not to mention some employers are already experimenting with how gameplay can help measure employees’ performance at their desks. All that can easily intersect to gamify aspects of employers’ wellness programs, helping employees’ self-care become something they look forward to.Offering ways for employees to stay healthy is good for employees, employers, and health insurers alike. In fact, a well-implemented and engaging wellness program can be one of the most attractive incentives for recruiting and retaining top talent. With more intuitive and holistic technologies being introduced to modernize results and benefits, wellness programs could very well become the norm across industries.

The Bombay High Court has set aside the conviction of a man in a case of abetment of suicide of his wife. “Merely because suicide was committed within seven years of a marriage, it would not automatically give rise to the presumption that suicide had been abetted by the husband,” the bench observed. A single bench of Justice A.S. Chandurkar was hearing an appeal filed by 24-year-old Sheshrao Dange, a labourer and agriculturist, against his conviction under section 306 (abetment of suicide) and 498 A (husband or relative of a woman subjecting her to cruelty) of the Indian Penal Code.Father filed complaintMr. Dange married Meena in April 2000 and the couple had a child. Meena died in April 2002 and soon thereafter, her father lodged a complaint alleging that his daughter had committed suicide because of demand for dowry. Mr. Dange, his parents and his sister were tried for the offences. While Mr. Dange was convicted, the others were acquitted.On August 26, 2003, Mr. Dange was sentenced to rigorous imprisonment for five years under Section 306 and one year under Section 498 A of IPC. The additional public prosecutor in the case submitted that the death of the wife occurred within seven years of the marriage and there was, therefore, a presumption under the provisions of The Evidence Act.After examining the facts of the case, the Court concluded that the prosecution failed to prove its case against Mr. Dange beyond reasonable doubt.
There seems no end to the list of Sachin Tendulkar admirers and the latest to laud the Indian batting icon is West Indian fast bowling great Courtney Walsh. “For me, Sachin has been the number one Indian batsman. Sometimes he has challenged me and at other times I have done so and we were very competitive. When we catch up there is respect from both sides,” stated Walsh, who took 519 wickets in 132 Tests, making him the fifth greatest wicket-taker of all time. Only Muttiah Muralitharan (800 wickets), Shane Warne (708), Anil Kumble (619) and Glenn McGrath (563) have more wickets than Walsh in Test history. Walsh was speaking on the occasion of a stand at Sabina Park being named after him on the opening day of the first Test on Monday. Walsh sees a lot of good in modern-day cricket but feels most of them are not with West Indian cricket. “Most changes are for good but in the West Indies team, consistency is not there, confidence is not there. There is potential and some are very good fast bowlers. We are working and I am sure we would be back soon,” he said. Even after playing for so long, Walsh believes he could have carried on a bit longer but wanted to make way for some promising fast bowlers. “I left a little early. West Indies was touring Zimbabwe and I though it was time to move on, give youngsters a break. “But those youngsters didn’t come through and so I could have carried on a little longer,” he said. Walsh and Curtly Ambrose set up a deadly attack for the West Indies in the ’90s and were the last great Caribbean fast bowlers to emerge from the region. “We never competed against each other; we complimented each other. Our styles were different. We tried to do what the team required. “I never sledged for it was important to maintain the spirit of the game. For me the ball did the talking,” he said. Walsh named Michael Holding, who also belongs to Jamaica, as his fast bowling idol. “I watched him as a kid and later we together played for the same club, Jamaica and of course West Indies.”advertisement- With inputs from PTI
Mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor is happy about the switch to lighter gloves for his August 26 fight against undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather and says his opponent will now struggle to make it past the second round.The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Wednesday, just 10 days before the hotly anticipated Las Vegas fight, approved requests from Mayweather and McGregor to wear eight-ounce gloves rather than 10-ounce ones.”That was a good thing for me. I’m very happy with it,” McGregor told reporters on a conference call.Mayweather had nearly all of his 49 professional wins using eight-ounce gloves, which may accentuate one of his advantages – his hand speed.McGregor preferred the lighter gloves since he is used to the fingerless, four-ounce gloves typically worn in MMA.”That’s it in a nutshell, you’ve got pros and cons on both sides,” he said. “Favours us both in certain ways.”I believe now that the gloves are eight ounces, I don’t believe he makes it out of the second round,” McGregor added.”Part of me … kind of wants to show some skills and dismantle him that way. (But) I do not foresee him absorbing the blows in the first two rounds.”While most pundits have McGregor, who has never boxed professionally, as a heavy underdog, the Dubliner said he was determined to prove the doubters wrong.”I’m just looking forward to August 26, going in and proving what I’m saying and educating the world on what martial arts is,” he said. “And earning my respect in this game also.”advertisementThe Irishman said his gruelling preparations for the fight would enable him to triumph no matter how the fight develops.”There is no way in hell that I am not ready to fight in the deepest of trenches in this contest,” McGregor added.”The training sessions and the practice that we’ve been putting in has been through hell and back. We are ready for absolutely every scenario.”I’m ready to go to war for the full 12 rounds and I am ready to put him away in the first 10 seconds. That’s where my head’s at.”Dana White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), followed McGregor on the conference call and predicted the fight could even threaten the reported $600 million haul from the Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao 2015 showdown.”This is the biggest event ever in combat sports history. This is the most distributed event in pay-per-view history,” White said, also citing the additional digital reach.”This thing is in like 200 countries on pay-per-view. Boxing doesn’t usually do a lot of digital. If you’re in Manhattan or on a desert island somewhere, if you have Wifi you can buy this fight.”
