South African law recognises 'incompatibility' as a fair reason to terminate the employment relationship. Incompatibility relates to the subjective relationship between an employee and both his fellow employees and employer within the workplace. More specifically, incompatibility pertains to an employee's inability or failure to maintain cordial and harmonious relationships with his employer and/or fellow employees. It is the employer that retains the prerogative to set the standards for harmonious interpersonal relationships in the workplace.

In this post-recession era, in which significant economic challenges remain and competition for work is fierce, preventing an employee from taking up employment with a competitor, which may give that competitor access to an employer's customers or confidential information is a key weapon.

In their black, floor-length robes, they sweep down the imposing passages of our courts of law with thick bundles under their arms and thundering eloquence in their voices. The advocates' profession, with its roots in English law, is a well-established one. But are the divisions in this profession as outdated as the nature of their attire?

Crime in South Africa has escalated to such a level that it has become part and parcel of our daily lives. The alarming frequency of violent crimes, such as hijackings, muggings, smash and grabs as well as rape, has impelled South Africans to search for methods of crime prevention.

I tasted the first wine that really made sense to me in Stellenbosch about 13 years ago. In order to fuel what soon became an obsession, I undertook a few wine theory and tasting courses and a small scale wine-making course; started reading whatever I could about wine; and committed to a thorough imbibing exercise regime.

In Australia, the Coalition - the Liberal party supported by the National party - was returned to government at a general election on September 7, ending a tumultuous six years of Labor rule. This election outcome was a decisive win for the Coalition; subject to the final tally, 89 seats to the Coalition, 56 seats to Labor and 5 to other minor parties - but fell short of the wipe-out that some observers had predicted. Tony Abbott is Australia's new Prime Minister, the fifth incumbent of this high office in six years.

Along Mumbai's Airport Road a concrete wall is covered with sunshine-yellow advertisements. Running the full length, the corporate slogan reads: BEAUTIFUL FOREVER BEAUTIFUL FOREVER BEAUTIFUL FOREVER. This novel is concerned with what happens behind that wall and how those who live in the shanty slum called Annawadi eke out their poverty-struck, disease-ridden, yet occasionally (and incongruently) happy lives.

Some time ago I delivered a road test on a Lexus, describing it as the luxury offering of Toyota. At the time I wanted to do a back-to-back test with the Infiniti (the luxury offering of Nissan), which unfortunately did not transpire as the test unit I was to have received suffered a shattered windscreen on its way to me. This threw me out of sequence and I was forced into a long wait for the Infiniti. I am pleased to report that it was definitely worth the wait.

What will I most remember about my recent visit to Turkey? Among many and in no particular order: a sense of the past, contrasts, mosques, amazing antiquities, the call to prayer, the aroma of spices, extreme heat, an intensely blue sky, shimmering crystal-clear sea, friendly people, tomatoes that have an incomparable flavour, delicious cakes, garlic, haggling, well-looked after stray cats and dogs, roads in wonderful condition and a lack of litter.

Mark Lamberti has developed an envied eye for an investment - when he took over Makro in 1988 he turned the company around from a loss of R7m on R500m turnover to a group (Massmart) spanning the continent with a turnover of almost R35bn when he stepped down in 2007 - including, importantly, when to exit. Shades of both skills are evident in Lamberti's most recent deal.
