In which year had South Africa been readmitted into international cricket?
A – 1991   B – 1800’s   C – 2000
Answer: A – 1991
South African cricket was isolated from the rest of the world for 21 years - from 1970 to 1991 - because of the apartheid policies of the former government. Isolation came at a time when the country could fairly claim to be the top test-playing nation in the world after the Springboks had pummelled the powerful Australians 4-0 with ease.

TIP OF THE DAY (www.ehow.com)
How to Be Good At What You Do
Everyone wants to be good at what they do for work. Many people find themselves in careers that they have no interest in and they struggle to find success. If you have to spend 40 or more hours a week doing something, you might as well do something you enjoy and can be good at.
1. Step 1
Take a personality test at careerdirectonline.org to see where your strengths and weaknesses are. Use the results to find a career that matches your personality.
2. Step 2
Follow your passion. Working on something you are passionate about does not feel like work. When you want to do your job because you genuinely care about the results you will naturally be good at what you do. Enjoy your work. Find pleasure in doing a good job. Take pride in being successful and doing things well.
3. Step 3
Learn everything there is to know. Once you have your career in place you should know everything there is to know about your business or industry. The more you know, the more success you will have.
4. Step 4
Work hard. This should go without saying but there are so many lazy people out there that don't want to get their hands dirty. Don't be afraid to take the hard jobs, they will push you to the next level.
5. Step 5
Network in your field. Go to events and conferences and meet other people that do what you do. By networking with others you will learn from their experiences and grow your knowledge. You can also connect with people online using social media and online forums.

The company's strategic focus is on helping financial institutions.

Vanessa joined us to discuss a recent surveyed conducted by Magnet Communications with students. What was found is the common denominator amongst students is that they want job stability before further studies or travelling this was the most prominent. However this was only one of the many questions asked to a diversity of students, question such as salary expectancy etc. Now according to Vanessa what Magnetic Communications will then do with this information is communicate this to various companies. Thereafter hopefully companies will then get back to them and make use of the information because it is said that many companies don’t know what is out there or what they themselves are looking for. This is a great way to secure the up and coming in this ever changing working world.

How a man plays a game shows something of his character, how he loses shows all of it.
