Payments overhaul About 760 government departments, agencies and municipalities have been asked to supply the call centre with the names of people responsible for payments. To date, 512 have responded. There are about 2.4-million registered SMMEs in South Africa, accounting for 40% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). Small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) experiencing late payments of more than 30 days after doing business with the government can now call a hotline on 0860 766 3729 or fax their details to 012 452 0458 for assistance. Through the hotline, launched by Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies in Pretoria this week, a group of agents will provide a single point of contact to facilitate the speedy payment for services or products provided to the government. Davies said payment processes within the government needed a complete overhaul. “Some of the procedures and processes have remained a stumbling block, and it’s a major challenge that we need to address. Davies said that while the delays could be absorbed by larger companies with access to credit, late payments could have devastating consequences for small firms. “It is our experience that small enterprises are still being paid extremely late, in some instances after 90 days, and this is adversely affecting the viability of small business,” he said. Davies said a number of small businesses had in the past been forced to close down as a result of delays in payments, adding that the Public Finance Management Act called for contractual obligations on accounts to be settled within 30 days of receipt of invoice. 21 September 2009 ‘Contractual obligation’ Source: BuaNews The Small Enterprise Development Agency will be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the call centre. The agency will compile annual reports identifying the major reasons for late payments and identifyiing government departments prone to the problem. “Of course we need to ensure that the processes and procedures are such that they ensure proper control and efficient use of resources, but we must at the same time cut out the unnecessary stress and procedures that delay payments unnecessary,” he said.
It isn’t easy to change. Our brain tends to shut down the desire to improve ourselves and our situation as soon as we are comfortable. As long as we don’t experience too much pain, we don’t change. Even if we know we are capable of more, if we could gain pleasure, we still don’t take action.Here’s your motivation (not that you need to be motivated or inspired).Building Your OwnMost of the reason we don’t take the actions we need to to take is because we are afraid.We fear that we will fail and lose the comfort of our identity. We fear being mocked, criticized, or ostracized and lose our connection to the herd. As much as we love novelty, most of us love the warm comfort of the status quo even more. We’re afraid to lose it. But there are outcomes you should fear more than this little list of horribles.You should fear not living up to your full potential. You should fear leaving this place before you realize your dreams. Or before you even attempt them.You should fear failing the people who count on you. You should fear not investing as much as you can in those relationships that are most precious to you.You should fear not making the contribution you know that you can—and should—make. You should fear walking away the fight that had your name all over it. You should fear lying down.You should fear living a lie, living a life of mediocrity, or living someone else’s purpose instead of your own.This is the list of horribles you should fear. This is your burning platform.Light the MatchEach day when your alarm goes off, the fears above are what should motivate you. They represent real and unrelenting danger.Don’t wait for or wish for motivation. You already have everything you need within you right now. And what you don’t have you are resourcefulness to go and discover.You’re holding the match. Go ahead and catch yourself on fire. Essential Reading!

Euro 2016 runners-up France, with a largely revamped side, were held to 0-0 draw by African champions Ivory Coast in a dull friendly at Lens’s Stade Bollaert on Tuesday.After Friday’s 2-1 win over Sweden in a World Cup qualifier, France coach Didier Deschamps made seven changes, handing Paris St Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot and Stade Rennes goalkeeper Benoit Costil their first international caps.With forward Antoine Griezmann ruled out due to a foot injury, Les Bleus struggled to get into their stride as the game failed to ignite on a cold evening in northern France. (Also read: Spain fight back to snatch draw with England)The crowd booed at the end of the match, obviously disappointed with France’s performance.”We struggled, that’s not what I want to remember from 2016,” said Deschamps. “We could have won that game but we could have lost it. We made too many errors, especially in the second half.”Ivory Coast had the best chance in the 11th minute when Adama Traore’s 20-metre half-volley crashed against Costil’s post and Salomon Kalou, who followed up the shot, poked the ball into the net but his effort was disallowed for offside.France’s best opportunity in the first half came six minutes before the break when N’Golo Kante’s fierce 20-metre strike was blocked by goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo.

Kolkata: The 98th birth anniversary of Satyajit Ray was celebrated in the city on Thursday.Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted “Maharaja Tomare Selam… Fondly remembering Satyajit Ray, legendary filmmaker, on his birth anniversary.” At Mother’s Wax museum in New Town, the wax statue of Ray was garlanded on the occasion by the chairman of Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (HIDCO) Debashis Sen. Orbits of Convergence: Ray’s Tagore, a unique programme by the Tollygunge Club, brought together the works of Rabindranath Tagore and Satyajit Ray. The event, conceptualised, scripted and directed by Subha Pal, with inputs from Subhashish Majumder, is an audio-visual presentation of Tagore’s works, which have been made into films by Satyajit Ray, along with the screening of a documentary on Tagore, made in 1961 on the birth centenary of Rabindranath. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataTagore was very close to the Ray family and had visited the Garpar house of the Rays when Sukumar, Ray’s father, fell ill and died prematurely. Tagore loved Ray because he lost his father at an early age. There will be play-readings too, followed by the recital of poetry and some songs which are reminiscent of both Tagore and Ray’s works. “This event is a tribute to mark the birth anniversary of two luminaries from Bengal — Rabindranath Tagore and Satyajit Ray. Since both their birthdays fall in the month of May, we decided to host a programme which focuses on how Ray’s films brought world-wide fame to Tagore’s works.

But Ray’s works captured beautifully the meaning inherent in Tagore’s works, which were lost in translation,” says Subha Pal, the director. Clippings from five films by Ray which included Teen Konya, Charulata, Ghare Baire, Postmaster and Monihara had been shown at the event. Barun Chanda, who acted in Ray’s Shimabaddha, spoke about Tagore’s interest in movies, during the latter part of his life. Biplab Das Gupta presented the play-reading while director Ashoke Vishwanathan enacted the characters from Ghare Baire and Monihara. Rohini and Debashish Ray Chaudhuri sang songs along with Apala Basu. The programme will also include songs from Ray’s films, as he used some of Tagore’s poems in his films to highlight a particular moment. “Ray’s love for music was much evident in movies like Gupi Gayen Bagha Bayen and Hirak Rajar Deshe and we will also include some songs from these movies,” Subha said. On his 98th Birth anniversary, Indian Museum ,ministry of Culture,is celebrating the day by organising an exhibition of photographs and Memorabilia at Pre-History Gallery, Indian Museum.
