    Moments before 18-year-old Conrad Roy was going to kill himself last summer, he had second thoughts and climbed out of his running truck. The message allegedly came from Michelle Carter, who police now say sent Roy a series of texts in the last days of his life encouraging him to commit suicide. Roy apparently listened; police later found him dead from carbon monoxide poisoning. In a report, police said that before dying, Roy told Carter “he was scared and didn’t want to leave his family,” the Sun Chronicle reported.

  • Four Malema moments

    Leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters Julius Malema has attracted a lot of media attention during his political career for either his language when addressing crowds or his behaviour in private settings. Here’s a list of four Malema moments that caused a stir. Malema refused to engage in a debate with former DA parliamentarian Lindiwe Mazibuko, calling her “the Madam’s tea girl” and “a political none entity”.

  • Forget the myths about foreigners

    AS reports surfaced this week of a new wave of attacks on foreign migrants working in the informal economy, this time in Bellville and Philippi in Cape Town and near Secunda in Mpumalanga, it is clear that the problems that bubbled over recently are far from resolved. The official response from Small Business Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu was to suggest that “foreigners” had certain underhand “trade secrets” that they should be made to share with their South African competitors. This suggestion is akin to insisting that big formal retailers such as PicknPay share their business strategies with their competitors. It is also off the mark because new research shows that far from resorting to underhand business practices that give them a competitive edge, foreign migrants are simply particularly hard-working entrepreneurs who employ similar techniques to those of formal retailers.

  • Will Smith Has Come Back Down To Earth

    Two years ago, Will Smith faced something he’d never experienced before: an unforgiving box office belly flop. Not only did After Earth open in third place with just $27.5 million — a pittance for a sci-fi adventure with a reported $130 million budget — but it opened up Smith and his son and co-star Jaden Smith to a degree of unrelenting ridicule that the elder Smith had astutely avoided since he catapulted to stardom in 1995’s Independence Day. The movie did earn a face-saving $183.3 million overseas, maintaining Smith’s reputation as a global box office draw. Instead, the movie suggests a kind of new normal for Smith, neither a return to his 2000s height as the world’s biggest movie star, nor a collapse into the sad swamp of Hollywood has-beens.

  • Samsung answers iPhone 6 with Galaxy S6

    Samsung Electronics introduced a flagship smartphone with a curved screen and mobile-payment system, seeking to spark sales after a painful year that saw its leadership eroded by Apple and Chinese upstarts like Xiaomi. The new Galaxy S6 and its double curved-screen variant the Galaxy S6 Edge, released on Sunday on the sidelines of an annual trade show here, outlines Samsung’s latest strategy for finding its footing: take on Apple’s iPhone head on, while bringing even more of the manufacturing process under its control. In the US, Samsung said it would be offered by all the major carriers, including Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. The stakes are high for Samsung, which saw its previous flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, fall flat with consumers.

    South Africa’s new ambassador to Washington, DC, Mninwa Mahlangu, has set tongues wagging in the US after it emerged that he may have received his distance-learning degree from an unaccredited institution. Mahlangu has, however, insisted his qualification is solid. In his official short bio, submitted for the ambassadorial position – Mahlangu’s first – he counts a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Fairfax in 1995 as among his qualifications. The Louisiana-based Fairfax University was established in 1986 and discontinued in 2004 when, according to Wikipedia, it relocated to the Cayman Islands.

  • Shuttleworth in court showdown

    TECH wunderkind and space tourist Mark Shuttleworth will face off against the South African Reserve Bank in the Constitutional Court on Tuesday as the central bank argues why it must not repay R250m to Mr Shuttleworth. The bank first hit Mr Shuttleworth with a R250m “exit levy” when he tried to repatriate about R4.3bn in 2009. Mr Shuttleworth paid this under protest and then challenged the exchange control system in the high court in 2010. A few months later, former finance minister Pravin Gordhan repealed that levy — but it was too late for Mr Shuttleworth.
