Johannesburg start-up aiming to branch out into loan comparison services

 

South Africa doesn’t have the best record when it comes to the field of price comparison websites. That isn’t to say there aren’t any, for example Hippo and PriceCheck. These sites don’t do anything wrong and all in all do a fairly decent job, but still lag far behind the rest of the world’s go-to price comparison services.

A 28 year old computer systems graduate is planning to create a shake-up in the industry. Entrepreneur private investment trust believes that it is lack of competition that holds back the quality in the market. If you’re at the top of the pile with a shabby product, why spend time, money, and effort making it sleeker for no good reason? Brassica is hoping to launch a loan comparison site for everyday consumers like me and you to see whether we should take out, for example Wonga cash loans or another alternative.

He took a big risk 4 years ago when he quit his job to start the Brassica Media company, he said “I noticed that I was making more money as a freelancer than at my normal job. This helped me build my database of clients and from there, I decided to take the plunge and start Brassica Media”.

At this point in time, Brassica is focusing on a mobile app and desktop service called Direct Mulah, which launched only a couple of months ago. It will allow customers to compare financial service providers, contact them if they so desire, as well as posting feedback on their experiences.

For the most part, SOLIDred Media builds websites for an affordable cost, and helps young businesses with development, hosting and marketing. They also provide SEO, an increasingly important part of getting traction towards a small business.

Moving back to his app, Direct Brassica, …

The Best Topic For An Ebook

 

The truth is, when it comes to choosing a topic for an ebook, it’s not a question of what’s best, but rather…

What exactly do readers want?

As it turns out, the answer is quite simple. Readers want anything and everything. And when you consider there are countless Internet consumers to draw from, the choice regarding suitable subject matter remains countless as well. Granted, not all consumers are shopping for ebooks, but even so, the odds are very much in your favor.

Of course, one has to assume that you’re expecting your ebook to generate a good deal of income. Great plan. But don’t just limit your thinking to topics you ASSUME will generate income. There’s honestly no way to pre-determine exactly what type of subject matter will accomplish financial gain.

So let’s discuss the possibilities.

As you surf the world wide Web, you’ll discover unlimited numbers of ebooks geared exclusively toward Internet Marketing. How it should be done… what, where, who, when. That’s fine. There’s no doubt it’s a popular and oftentimes profitable niche. But it’s certainly not the only one.

And when you think about it, those who are involved in Internet marketing constitute a very small portion of the online population as a whole. What about all the other areas that Internet users are interested in?

If you analyze the most popular keyword searches on a weekly or even monthly basis, you’ll find that few (if any) of them relate to topics that are even remotely associated with Internet marketing in general.

So before you go jumping on the same bandwagon as everyone else, consider the *average* reader…

The majority are still purchasing ebooks the same way they would a tangible book. They’re not seeking to make their fortune via the Internet. They merely wish to …

Peter Eastgate Takes Down 2008 hk prize Main Event

 

After waiting nearly four months to reconvene the final table of the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event, everyone was excited to get the action going.  None could have been more excited than the 22-year-old Peter Eastgate, who broke Phil Hellmuth’s record and is now the youngest main event champion to ever grace the hk prize .  Eastgate walked away with not only the record-holding title, but the WSOP gold bracelet and $9,152,416 in total winnings!

Think back to July and recall that the $10K NL Hold’em tournament began with 6,844 players.  Then it all came down to the infamous November Nine: Ivan Demidov, Peter Eastgate, Kelly Kim, Craig Marquis, Scott Montgomery, Dennis Phillips, David “Chino” Rheem, Ylon Schwartz, and Darus Suharto.

Dennis Phillips, the truck salesman from St. Louis, started the table as chip leader and was able to stick around long enough to see some of the first few eliminations.

First to go was Craig Marqui.  With pocket sevens, Marqui pushed his stack all-in, only to be called by Scott Montgomery who held A-Q.  Flopping a set, Marqui thought his win was in the bag.  That is until Montgomery got runner-runner and sent Marqui home with his straight.

Next to go to the rail was Kelly Kim.  Starting as short stack, Kim wasn’t expected to last very long.  Trying to seize the right opportunity to double up, Kim’s stack became extremely low.  Finally, a break must have come because Kim moved all-in.  Ivan Demidov, Ylon Schwartz, and Darus Suharto all called to see the action.  Lady Luck didn’t play a role in choosing board cards for Kim though.  Defeated, Kim mucked and walked away in eighth place.

David Rheem was next on the list, when his A-K met up against Darus Suharto’s A-Q.  Rheem was devastated, …

Ethereum to $ 45,000 in 2025, Says Crypto Analyst

 

Comparing the return on investment (ROI) of Bitcoin ( BTC ) and Ethereum (ETH) during the 2017 bull run, a Crypto analyst known on Twitter by the name CryptoWolf says that ETH can achieve spectacular growth by 2025.

Ethereum price prediction between $ 10,000 and 45,000 in 2025.

In his recent tweet, the analyst CryptoWolf writes that the price of the second largest cryptocurrency can reach a breathtaking level in 2025 – from 10,000 to 45,000 USD. For this to happen, the return on investment in ETH would have to be as high as 500%.

ROI over the last 4 years.

ETH 130x

XRP 31x

BTC 17x

DOGE 13x

LTC 11x

Btc over the last 4 years had slightly higher returns of Doge and LTC. pic.twitter.com/jD9Nsj8mmc

— CryptoWolf (@IamCryptoWolf) December 27, 2019

Other analysts are equally optimistic. They believe that during the new large bull market, ETH will reach 10,000 USD. However, bitcoin dice they do not often specify specific dates when this may occur.

Another trader, “Filbfilb,” notes that, unlike ETH and XRP, Bitcoin showed over 100% growth throughout 2019. So this shows that ETH has less potential for growth. At least that was the case in the ending year.

A buying opportunity or another bull trap?

Usually, the more mature part of the crypto community treats price drops quite optimistically – as an opportunity to buy cheap bitcoin or any other crptocurrency and to make profits in the long term. This is the idea of ​​”hodling”. Bitcoin fans remember this when the price drops. Ripple retail investors tweet this all the time when XRP makes lower lows in the chart.

However, it seems that some are starting to feel …

Bodog- result hk Leaderboards – Current Leaders May 16th

 

 

When we looked at the weekly Bodog leaderboard last Friday,  result hk WillyNilly had a narrow lead over ParliGod of only 32 points. Here were the top three when the week was over:

 

  1. fitzfitz – 1589 pts
  2. RezinLife – 1577 pts
  3. Dartanian – 1566 pts

 

ParliGod actually passed WillyNilly the day after I wrote last week’s article, but he couldn’t keep the top spot for long either. fitzfitz took the top spot from ParliGod and he was the guy on top when the week was over. Congratulations to fitzfitz for winning the chance to play a Bodog pro heads-up for $1,000.

 

Moving on to this week, here is the current weekly top ten:

 

  1. StraightNutz – 1275 pts
  2. The Maven – 1181 pts
  3. andyvanslyke – 1178 pts
  4. whatever877 – 1007 pts
  5. PhillyGG – 950 pts
  6. Killa_Tyven – 904 pts
  7. dunkin dutchman – 886 pts
  8. fitzfitz – 836 pts
  9. ilovekaren – 829 pts
  10. dukedaddie – 828 pts

 

StraightNutz is in the lead now, but we all know that a 100 point lead isn’t very safe, particularly with a few days left in the week still. There’s the familiar name of andyvanslyke in third place – he’s been in the top ten of Bodog’s tournament leaderboards very often lately. In fact, over the last 30 days, his name has shown up in the top ten of the weekly board 13 times and the monthly board 22 times. Impressive! fitzfitz is also in the top ten again, sitting in 8th place. Can he make a run for first and win the weekly race two weeks in a row? He’s behind by over 400 points right now so it may seem unlikely, but last week he overcame a 300 point deficit to win first place. Maybe 400 points …

LEGAL HASSLE INCOMING

 

 

New banning bill in Illinois

 

More State law aimed at hamstringing Internet gambling is on the radar at present, this time from Illinois.

 

State Rep. Elizabeth Coulson is leading the charge with a Leach look-alike bill that attempts to eliminate Internet gambling by prohibiting banks and credit card companies from processing wire transfers to Internet casinos. If a bank knowingly processed such transactions, it would be fined $1,000 per offense.

 

And any credit card debts from Internet gambling transactions would be null and void, meaning the financial institutions wouldn’t have to pay the online casinos, and in turn, the bettor would not have to pay the financial institution.

 

“Basically, we would say that credit card companies don’t have to pay the Internet debt. So then, guess what, the gambling people aren’t going to want to take cards from Illinois, and then you eliminate the problem,” Coulson says.

 

The bill is currently awaiting a hearing in the Slot Gacor gaming committee, whose chairman, Rep. Lou Lang said more testimony and information about Internet gambling would be needed before the committee could act. Coulson attempted a similar bill last session, and it passed the House 111-0 but was then stalled in the Senate rules committee.

As a fully qualified translator and 20 years’ experience under my belt working freelance in the UK I now tend to concentrate on translating medical texts (questionnaires, patient information leaflets, SOPs) from English into my mother tongue German. But I also love stylistically demanding texts and those that give you the freedom to move away ever so slightly from the source text. Tourist brochures and marketing texts are a great favourite of mine. When I am not working I love spending time with my family, travelling and playing badminton and going to the gym to keep a healthy work/life balance.
