Closing of @ComradesRace 2015 Early Bird Entries

Closing of 2015 Comrades Marathon Early Bird Entries

The Comrades Marathon Association (CMA) has announced that early bird entries for the 90th Comrades Marathon entry process will close on 30 September 2014. So far, 9420 entries have already been received since the entry process opened on 1 September 2014.

This means that just over 13,000 entries are available before the overall entry process closes at the end of November or as soon as the cap of 23000 entries has been reached. Thereafter, no entries will be accepted so runners are urged to enter as soon as possible or risk missing out.

CMA Race Director, Rowyn James says, ‘South African runners can take advantage of the ‘early bird’ entry fee of R350 for the entire month of September. As of 1 October 2014, the entry cost for South African runners will be R380.’

Runners from the Rest of Africa will be charged an entry fee of R600 and the cost to International athletes is R2000. The entry requirements, which are clearly indicated on the entry form, must be adhered to at all times.

Entries may be made as follows:

· online via the Comrades Marathon website: www.comrades.com;

· by posting the completed entry form with proof of payment to the CMA Office in Pietermaritzburg: P.O. Box 100621, Scottsville, 3209;

· by handing in the completed entry form together with payment at the CMA office in Pietermaritzburg: 18 Connaught Road, Scottsville.

Runners may enter the race before running a qualifying marathon (minimum qualifying distance of 42.2km run in under 5 hours) which must be run between 1 August 2014 and 3 May 2015. Please note that the 2014 Comrades Marathon will not be an automatic qualifier for the 2015 race. Qualifying details must be submitted to the CMA by 5 May 2015.

The 90th edition of the world’s leading ultra-marathon is all set to showcase South Africa’s and the world’s ultra-runners once again come Sunday, 31 May 2015. Being an ‘up-run’, the race starts at the DurbanCity Hall at 05h30 and ends 12 hours later at the Oval Cricket Stadium in Pietermaritzburg.

Incomplete judgment as of now – has Justice been done in #OscarTrial

Shooting straight from the hip here. I made the fatal mistake of reading some print articles immediately before going to bed last night, on Matsipa J’s erratic, confusing and mostly contradictory judgment, which I listened partially to yesterday whilst preparing even more papers for the Mercedes driving, flashy, partying, drinking,’criminal’ attorney, ex-husband who refuses to pay High Court Ordered child support, and who himself has abused and made a mockery of our very questionable justice system.

Shooting straight from the hip here.  I made the fatal mistake of reading some print articles immediately before going to bed last night, on Matsipa J’s erratic, confusing and mostly contradictory judgment, which I listened partially to yesterday whilst preparing even more papers for the Mercedes driving, flashy, partying, drinking,’criminal’ attorney, ex-husband who refuses to pay High Court Ordered child support, and who himself has abused and made a mockery of our very questionable justice system.

So Oscar gets off on pre-meditated murder, to be expected – but to get off on murder?  Culpable Homicide is an act of negligence.  Can anyone really say that Oscar Pistorius was negligent, when he, in a rage, picked up that firearm and fired 4 shots through a bathroom door at someone he could not see?  And what of the extremely publicised volatile and abusive nature, which the judge did mention as possibly…

Eat, drink and be merry, and get paid for it – #Homebiz #WAHM #OnlineBusiness

I have taken the plunge and will report back on what I find. In South Africa with the ZAR/$ being favorable to the USA, the UK and Australia, this is definitely worth a try… Anyone else have any experiences they would like to share?

  1. Eat, drink and be merry, and get paid for it.
  2. Take online survey and get paid $75 per survey
  3. Participate in a focus group and get paid $150 per hour
  4. Read emails for cash payments
  5. Email Processing Homebiz, The Email Processing Giant.

The Verdict is not out on this one yet but the concept seems to be a relatively simple one for folks who have time on their hands and need to supplement their income.

I have taken the plunge and will report back on what I find.  In South Africa with the ZAR/$ being favorable to the USA, the UK and Australia, this is definitely worth a try…  Anyone else have any experiences they would like to share?

Cape Town defence attorney faces criminal charges for breaching High Court Maintenance Order

Cape Town lawyer faces criminal charges and court action – Parents:- For more information and advice if you are fighting this seemingly losing battle please note:

Failure to pay Maintenance

If the non-custodial parent does not pay maintenance, even though being issued with an order, the court can instruct his/her employer to deduct the monthly amount directly from his/her salary. A parent who refuses to pay any child maintenance risks having their personal possessions seized and sold, the proceeds of which will be paid to the custodial parent. Although the courts are against sending a person to prison for non-payment of maintenance, the offender runs the risk of facing a prison sentence.
