Creativity is the flavour of the month with Romans Pizza

7Investing in education is key to social upliftment in South Africa, and what better way to do it than with pizza, a firm favourite with children everywhere? Romans Pizza is offering school children a chance to explore their creative sides and win fabulous prizes for themselves and their schools – and all they have to do is dig in to a mouth-watering Romans Pizza between now and the end of November

The Scholar-Box competition is as hot and fresh as the flavours found at Roman’s Pizza. Any child or young adult attending school up to the age of 18 can enter, by purchasing and enjoying a large pizza and then creating an original artwork out of the box or boxes. The sky is the limit and the competition encourages entrants to use their imagination and make a pizza box masterpiece.

The prizes are enough to make any school-goer hungry for the top spot: First prize is a PS4, a R500 Musica Voucher, a Roman’s Pizza goody bag and pizza for their entire class. And, most importantly, a whopping R20 000 donation to the winner’s school to be used to develop or upgrade their sports facility. The second and third prizes are just as generous, again giving out a PS4, R500 Musica Voucher and delicious pizza for the class, but with R15 000 and R10 000 for the schools respectively. Even those who don’t win are left smiling, with 20 consolation prizes of a goody bag up for grabs.

According to Bonnie Lee, Head of Marketing for Roman’s Pizza, “We know that so many of valued our customers are pizza-loving children, who want and deserve top-notch school facilities. Sport is a wonderful way of teaching children good values, promoting exercise and encouraging them to adopt beneficial hobbies and interests. That is why we did not want the prizes to only benefit the individual winners but also to give a school full of learners something to enjoy and use for many years to come.” “And”, she adds, “It’s a fun competition that they will enjoy doing. In fact, we had to extend the campaign due to demand from scholars.”

Entry into the competition is as easy as buying at least one large pizza from Roman’s Pizza and tucking in. Then, children can set to work having fun and piecing together their box art. Once completed, young artists should snap a picture of their creation and upload it to the Roman’s Pizza Facebook page or email it to social@romanspizza.com before the 30th of November. The photo should be accompanied by the following details: name, school, age, area and contact details.

Mutant Giant Spider Dog Prank

This is one of the most hilarious prank videos we’ve come across in a very long time – dubbed the mutant giant spider dog prank, it features a dog which was transformed into a giant spider through the use of a spider suit.

The prank was put together by Polish prankster Sylwester Wardega, who caught footage of people being scared witless by the “giant spider” in various scenarios, including a public park at night, an elevator in a building, and what appears to be a dark tunnel in the street.

Here’s the video which will either have you squirming in your seat, or falling off it with laughter:

Nandos Blue Light Brigade Advert

Nandos are famous for their humorous advertising campaigns which often feature current events and frequently contain content that borders on social commentary.

Gautrain Adds Later Train to OR Tambo International Airport

The Gautrain has undoubtedly provided residents of Johannesburg with levels of convenience that they have not previously experienced – the train service to the airport is very efficient, prompt and reliable (except in a few isolated instances where technical difficulties resulted in the train not operating for short periods of time). However, one of the few gripes raised by the public, was that the train service to the airport does not start early enough in the morning or end late enough at night. The Gautrain’s management has listened to these concerns, and has decided to introduce an additional service from from Sandton Gautrain station, by offering a train to OR Tambo International Airport early in the morning and late at night.

The additional service will provide a train which leaves the Sandton Gautrain station at 04:50 and 05:10, and an a train which runs from the airport station up until 20:46 and 21:04 at night. This will allow travellers who have flights very early in the morning and later in the evening to make use of the Gautrain to travel to and from the airport. The additional trains will not stop at any stations between Sandton and the airport, and will run directly to the airport.

Many local residents have voiced their support for the decision on social media, and it is certainly a step in the right direction.

Throwback Tuesday – Tupac Do for Love Music Video

One of the best things about running an independent entertainment site is that when we come across an old music video that brings back memories, we can simply post it without red tape or anybody higher up in the chain of command veto-ing the decision. The Tupac Do for Love music video is a prime example of this – here’s the historic video by one of the greatest rappers to have walked the earth:

Petrol Price Decrease in September 2014

Petrol PriceThere will be a huge petrol price decrease in September 2014, which will bring the petrol price to its lowest level in 2014. On Wednesday, 3 September 2014, the petrol price will drop by 67 cents a litre, bringing it to R13.66 per liter.

There will also be a decrease in the price of wholesale diesel, which will drop by over 25 cents to 12.59 rand.

The decrease in the petrol price is mainly due to the stable rand / dollar exchange rate and the decrease in the oil price in recent weeks. The oil price is currently around $100 a barrel.

Economists are expecting the petrol price to remain relatively stable throughout the remainder of 2014.

Malema Taking on Zuma Regarding Nkandla

A recent question and answer session in Parliament saw EFF members and EFF Commander in Chief Julius Malema taking on Zuma regarding Nkandla and asking him when he intends repaying the money spent on security upgrades.

Zuma looks decidedly uncomfortable when answering the question after being confronted with the issue. Unsurprisingly, his response is non-committal and evasive and does not contain a commitment to repay any of the money.

However, later in the video, when the Parliamentary chairperson begins reprimanding EFF members for demanding a clear answer to the question and threatens to have them thrown out, Zuma is seen laughing at the events that are unfolding around him (this is seen 6 minutes and 20 seconds into the video).

The incident stemmed from the report of the Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela, in which she recommended that Zuma repays the money spent on the upgrades at Nkandla, which he personally benefited from.

Watch the video of the incident here:
