Study to Play @HUAWEIza #MatePadT8 is Your Child’s Digital Best Friend

Hi Friends,

As many parents continue to keep their young ones at home, children are beginning to adapt to digital technologies at an exceedingly rapid rate. The days of coloring-in books have now been replaced by tablets, which can be used as a platform to create fun digital illustrations, and the interactive face-to-face classes with teachers have morphed into engaging online lessons.

This change seems to be almost seamless for today’s technologically astute children, whose only impediment to truly embracing a digitally transformed way of learning and playing is a lack of the right tools. Today, tablets need to adhere to a variety of criteria in order to truly benefit today’s youth, as well as their families. Devices need to be durable, light, powerful, and of course - fun.

The right tool in the right form
The new HUAWEI MatePad T8 is a device that meets all of these requirements, as it is a feature-packed tablet that comes in a lightweight design. It has a massive screen-to-body ratio of over 80 percent, making the most of the compact form factor to provide a large display area for kids and parents. It comes in a streamlined metal back featuring a sandblasted finish that produces a smooth look, and an ergonomic curved design to ensure a comfortable hold, even over long periods of use.

Powered by an octa-core chipset and housing a large 5100 mAh battery, the HUAWEI MatePad T8 provides everything your kids need for hours of uninterrupted entertainment and education, for just R2,999. The tablet is perfect for families who often find themselves in battles over screen time, with plenty of advanced tools to overcome these simple obstacles and squabbles.

Digital balance with Kids Corner
One of the greatest demands when it comes to tablets has been for a feature that enables parents to track and limit their children’s usage time of a device, so as to prevent their young ones from indulging in copious, unbroken amounts of screen time. The HUAWEI MatePad T8 is the perfect tool to provide your child with that crucial digital balance, thanks to the built-in Kids Corner. Kids Corner is a virtual playground that children can explore without adult supervision. The platform not only aims to create an exclusive learning and entertainment space for children but also ensures that parents can easily monitor their child’s tablet usage – without having to hover over them 24/7.

Full parental controls
With the HUAWEI MatePad T8, you can simply open Parental Controls in Kids Corner to find the four control modules – eye protection, time management, app management, and content management. These features are designed to help children develop healthier, more sustainable technology habits. Settings can be easily modified to limit the number of times a day and for how long your child is allowed to use his or her tablet, as well as enable rest periods.

Screen time limits
You can also establish what apps and media are accessible at different times, which can be used effectively to help ease children into a daily routine. To promote healthy device usage, the Kids Corner includes four eye protection modes – blue light filter, posture alerts, bumpy road alerts, and eBook – to provide a more comfortable user experience.

Correct posture
For when kids are using the HUAWEI MatePad T, Kids Corner also has a few tricks to look after their physical health. Often, when spending time on a tablet or laptop, it is easy to become overly relaxed and slump into postures and positions that are damaging to the joints and muscles. Kids Corner has posture alerts that can identify when the user is lying still for too long and alert them to move and correct their posture. Moreover, the HUAWEI MatePad T features a blue light filter, bumpy road alerts, and eBook mode, which protecting your kids’ eyes.

With its affordable price point, powerful performance, and durability, the HUAWEI MatePad T8 is the ultimate tablet for families. Through Kids Corner, the device places education, protection, and digital wellness at its core, giving parents peace of mind, and the young ones a device that has their best intentions at heart. 

The HUAWEI MatePad T8 is priced at R2,999 and is available on Huawei’s online commerce store at https://huaweistore.co.za/huawei-matepad-t8-wifi-blue.html. From 1 July it will be available at the following stores: Vodacom, MTN, Cellucity, Telkom, Incredible Connection, Makro and Game.

#TheLifesWayReviews KOTA FACTORY @TheViralFever #KotaFactory #Drama

Hi Friends,

Yesterday I binged watched the Kota Factory as it's only 5 episodes which go for about 3 hours 15 minutes and totally fallen in love with the overall story and brought back so many memories from the times when I was preparing for my engineering entrance exams from New Delhi and not from Kota like the TVF's Kota Factory's protagonist Vaibhav Pandey played by Mayur More. Ranjan Raj plays Balmukund Meena who welcomes Vaibhav into his world of IIT preparations and becomes one of the best friends. His acting is superb and brings a lot of soul to the whole series. 

Kota is showcased to be run by two major coaching institutes where Maheshwari Classes is number 1 and if you don't get admission there then you join Prodigy Coaching classes. Vaibhav comes to Kota and joins the Prodigy after being rejected admission by Maheshwari Classes and starts in the lowest batch A10. He is introduced to Uday Gupta played by Alam Khan and Shivangi Ranawat played by Ahsaas Channa by Meena. Slowly as he starts his journey he is helped and motivated by Jeetu Bhaiya who is Physics Teacher at Prodigy Classes and the actor behind this role is Jitendra Kumar. In real life, Jitendra is an IIT Kharagpur graduate and moved into movies and web series. 

Kota Factory not only focusses on the various subjects and the nitty-gritty behind those subjects but also coming out from the home environment to stay in the hostels and PG's where the basic necessities is also a struggle despite the amount of money provided by the family. As the friendship develops, Vaibhav and others not only learns a lot about life but also about the IIT preparations. This web series doesn't only show the competitiveness between students but the mental state of aspirants who are spending 1-2 years of their life in Kota and how it impacts the rest of their life. The 21 Days plan is really awesome and you will definitely enjoy watching this web series. 
#TheLifesWayReviews KOTA FACTORY @TheViralFever #KotaFactory #Drama
The dialogues spoken by Jeetu Bhaiya really hits you to think a lot about your own life whatever stage you are in. I really loved watching this web series and want to see it once again especially the parts of Jeetu Bhaiya. Even when Meena says ''Kabhi Kabhi Milne aur saath rehne mein farak hota hai, Dosti hai koi revision thodi na, joh Karna hi hai'' and this dialogue made me cry. It reminded me of several times when I had to leave a lot behind and just go where life took me. That's the biggest reality of life which we need to accept that change is what will keep you moving forward and accept it as soon as possible and make it a way of life. 

There is not only serious mode in this web series but also when they get to relax for 5 days during the Class 12 practicals time and it brings that they are still kids who are handling the pressure of the world. It is the time when Meena falls for Meenal Parekh played by Urvi Singh and Vaibhav for Vartika Ratawal played by Revathi Pillai whom we saw recently in Special Ops as Kay Kay Menon's daughter. These moments are really great as it will bring back all the memories of first love from your school and college days. 

Kota Factory is a comedy-drama created by Saurabh Khanna and Tamojit Das. The songs are created by Karthik Rao and Simran Hora. Cinematography is done by Jerin Paul and a lot of drone shots really bring a lot of great shots of Kota, Rajasthan. The overall production value is great and all actors just fit in their roles and the story is great with a lot of drama, comedy, and motivation. Also, the whole series is shot in Black and White till the end and really brings back nostalgic memories automatically.

I don't know whether there will be a Season 2 of the series but I am hoping that it will happen sometime after the lockdown as the end result of getting into the IIT is not shown but I am sure even these 5 episodes you will want to see again and again. Go for it if not seen to date. The same is also available on Youtube as well as TVFPlay. RATING 4.5/5

Sawubona!

About Capital Legacy:
Capital Legacy focuses on assisting their clients, by making a difference when it really counts…

There are many unexpected legal fees associated with any estate when someone passes. These fees can often cause incredible cash flow problems or worse yet, eat into the inheritance of the various loved ones it was intended for, those being the beneficiaries of the Will. These fees include Executors Fees, Testamentary Trust Fees, Conveyance Attorney Fees, and Non-Estate Asset Administration Fees, amongst others that are charged as a percentage of your total estate. You can thus quickly see how these expenses can up fast.

There are also unforeseen costs that can occur after passing that can cripple your beneficiaries in the form of immediate funeral expenses, initial overheads (Masters Fees, property clearances, etc.), monthly overheads e.g. education fees, medical aid bills, hospital fees, specialist fees, rates and taxes, water and electricity, levies, should we continue? In the worst-case scenario of you and your spouse pass away, exponentially high inheritance taxes.

All these costs can be covered through the unique solution offered by Capital Legacy in the form of their Legacy Protection Plan™. The Legacy Protection Plan™ accompanies your Will to protect you and your loved ones from exorbitant legal fees when you pass away, not only creating ease of cash flow but also peace of mind for you today.

#TheLifesWayReviews AARYA @DisneyplusHSVIP #HotstarSpecials #Aarya #Thriller

Hi Friends,

Aarya is the latest web series launched on Disney + Hotstar online platform and marks the comeback of Sushmita Sen after a gap of 10 years. Aarya has a good storyline with a lot of twists and turns. Sushmita Sen hasn't aged and seems extremely fit to be in the role of mother of 3 children, two being teenagers. I watched the whole series on the day of the launch i.e. 19th June 2020 on Hotstar Digital Platform but didn't get the time to write the review to date.

Also, I found the 9 episodes to be running too slow and it would have made it more thrilling if the speed of the serial has been increased 10-15% as I got disinterested in the series in the first 2 episodes which I watched at the regular playback speed and when I increased the same to 115% then it was working more and kept me on the edge of the seat. 9 episodes in total will take around 7 hours 45 minutes to finish and you can easily binge-watch them on the tour of Rajasthan and the first few episodes are more like marriage ceremonies of the big fat wedding.

The web series stars Chandrachur Singh which also makes a comeback as Jay Sareen, husband of Aarya Sareen played by Sushmita Sen. Namit Das as Jawahar and Ankur Bhatia as Sangram who is the younger brother of Aarya. These 3 persons are handling the business once run by their dad Zorawar played by Jayant Kripalani. Sikandar Kher as Daulat is Zorawar's, right-hand man and later helps Aarya in all her tasks to run the business. Alexx ONell plays Bob with which younger sister of Aarya, Soundarya is getting married played by Priyasha Bhardwaj. Flora Saini also plays a small role of Radhika/Rads as a lover of Zorawar. Sohaila Kapur plays the ex-wife of Zorawar. Sugandha Garg also makes a comeback as Hina but got nothing much to do as the fiancee of Sangram. Maya Sarao plays Jawahar's wife role as Maya. Maya, Aarya, and Hina are best friends in the web series.
#TheLifesWayReviews AARYA @DisneyplusHSVIP #HotstarSpecials #Aarya #Thriller
The story revolves around the greed of getting rich despite Jay's warnings to Jawahar and Sangram led to the murder of Jay in front of his son. The reign is then handled by Aarya as she overcomes all kinds of challenges and fighting the cause to keep her family close despite several threats from the police and the Shekawat played by Manish Choudhary whose heroine they tried to take and become rich. She herself tries to find the person behind the murder of her husband Jay which keeps you glued to the screen. Sangram runs the operation from jail and ACP Khan played by Vikas Kumar tries to find the culprit. The overall story has many elements which you will like as the fighting spirit of Aarya and the selfish tendencies of Jawahar while all the hell comes loose and there is chaos all around. I really loved the acting of Vishwajeet Pradhan as Sampat - right-hand man of Shekawat. The story tells an emotional part of the afterlife of kids as their father dies and how each one of them tries to handle the situation despite their loving mother and other family members. It's a real struggle inside their hearts, mind, body, and soul and showcased greatly in this web series. Veer (eldest son) is played by Viren Vazirani, Aaru (daughter) is played by Virti Vaghani and youngest son Adi is played by Pratyaksh Panwar. Veer's love interest Pallavi is played by Gargi Sawant.

Some of the issues showcased are just introduced in the story to accommodate everything like ACP Khan to be gay as there is no development of character or something and there is no focus on the same too afterward. Also, the love with the old Bollywood songs is just like as showcased in the Karan Johar's movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil where it was introduced just to match someone's from the production house thinking it will suit the audience and they will like it and here also in this series there are long sequences of the old Hindi songs. It's not like I didn't love those songs but it doesn't make any sense in today's world of web-series unless you are advertising them for SAREGAMA's Carvaan Music player. 

Overall, this web series has a huge star cast with great sets and cinematography and they have kept the ending open so as to make another season. It is not announced yet but in the days to come - it will be as the web series is getting good response from all the fans of Sushmita Sen including me. The web series is produced by Ram and Amita Madhvani along with Endemol Shine India and is based on Penoza a Dutch Drama series by Pieter Bart Korthuis. I also liked the background music done by Vishal Khurana and the story is written by Sandeep Shrivastava and Anu Singh Choudhary. Aarya is directed by Ram Madhvani himself along with Sandeep Modi and Vinod Rawat. Watch it this weekend on Disney Hotstar. RATING 3.5/5

Brown-hooded Kingfisher @SANParksKNP @SANParks #KrugerNationalPark #SouthAfrica

Hi Friends, 

Sometimes in life, you wonder that you shall have the higher zoom camera to capture the beautiful birds which are far on the branches or are flying high in the skies. A similar experience happened to me when I saw this beautiful Kingfisher bird which was sitting far high on the branches of a tree inside the Kruger National Park. 
Brown-hooded Kingfisher @SANParksKNP @SANParks #KrugerNationalPark #SouthAfrica
Kruger National Park is filled with so many different kinds of birds and you need a good telephoto lens so that you can reach them from far far away. It's always good practice to rent the equipment if you can't own the same. 
Brown-hooded Kingfisher @SANParksKNP @SANParks #KrugerNationalPark #SouthAfrica
Brown-hooded Kingfisher is almost the size of Cape Sterling which I shared photos earlier in my posts and weighs just 60 grams. You will be able to find them near any water source especially rivers inside the Kruger National Park. 
Brown-hooded Kingfisher @SANParksKNP @SANParks #KrugerNationalPark #SouthAfrica
In the end, Kingfisher is one of the beautiful birds with a loud and harsh voice. You will find them in pairs maximum else it also roams alone. People also say that it showcases the most dramatic courtship displays in the mating season. All the photos are taken using Nikon D7000 and Sigma 70-300mm Telephoto lens inside the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Impala @SANParksKNP @SANParks #KrugerNationalPark #SouthAfrica

Hi Friends,

Impala is found all over South Africa in all the game drives and all the national parks and they look really lovely in their beautiful and agile body. 
Impala @SANParksKNP @SANParks #KrugerNationalPark #SouthAfrica
This photograph is my favorite as one of the Impala takes the center stage while others check out my next movement to start running from the spot. This led to a great photographic capture as the sand creates the stage like a podium and the grass in the background created the others in far watching the performances. 
Impala @SANParksKNP @SANParks #KrugerNationalPark #SouthAfrica
The beautiful Impala can run at its maximum speed of 80km while 60km is general. One fun fact is that they are also called as McDonald's of the Bush as they are readily available for the carnivorous animals to hunt them easily. 
Impala @SANParksKNP @SANParks #KrugerNationalPark #SouthAfrica
Because they have dark brown lines on either side of their bottoms and one in the middle of the tail, making it look like an M logo just like on McDonald's stores all around the world. If you ever make it to South Africa, do check them out at the Kruger National Park and enjoy this beautiful animal and if you are lucky enough, you will see them getting hunted by the Leopards and Lions. All the photos are taken using the Nikon D7000 and Sigma 70-300mm telephoto lens.

#SponsorsOfBrave 12th Nominee Pharmacist Alwyn Immerman #AdcockIngramOTC

Hi Friends,

The Sponsors of Brave campaign – twelfth nominee – Pharmacist Alwyn Immerman from Umhlanga, KZN

Meet Pharmacist Alwyn Immerman who is driven by his passion to give back and is uplifting his community with the assistance of his four-legged furry friend Humphrey.

At 72 years old, Umhlanga-based Pharmacist Alwyn Immerman has served his community for over 50 years. 

And his four-legged, furry assistant Humphrey has been a fixture at his side since Immerman adopted the little dog from the local SPCA. Humphrey is a calming, supportive friend to all those who visit the pharmacy and helps encourage scared kids to take their medicine when sick. 

Immerman says his passion for pharmacy, and in life, stems from giving back to society instead of taking. 

This shines through in the care he takes of patients and customers, and in his drive to support the incredible work that the SPCA does. With Humphrey as the inspiration, Immerman started fundraising for the SPCA six years ago and has already raised R600 000. He hopes to increase this number to R1 000 000 - to make Humphrey a dog in a million.

#SponsorsOfBrave 11th Nominee Doctor John Michell #AdcockIngramOTC

Hi Friends, 

The Sponsors of Brave campaign - eleventh nominee – Doctor John Michell from the Eastern Cape

Meet Doctor John Michell who serves the communities in the rugged landscape near Mqanduli and Coffee Bay, Eastern Cape. John is always willing to go above and beyond despite the risk and this is why the local community call him a hero and an angel.

While Michell pioneered blood donation at the Zithulele Hospital, this isn't why the local community calls him a hero and an angel.

In March 2019 protests in the area cut off the roads giving access to the nearby Nzulwini clinic. Knowing the clinic was in need of supplies, Michell did not hesitate to pack 25kgs of medication on his back and take on the tumultuous off-road trek to the clinic. He journeyed through the hills, valleys, and swam a river to help deliver the much needed medication and antiretrovirals, and to tend to the 120 or more patients depending on him that day.

#SponsorsOfBrave 10th Nominee Orthotist & Prosthetist Ncedo Ludada #AdcockIngramOTC

Hi Friends,

The Sponsors of Brave campaign - tenth nominee – Orthotist & Prosthetist Ncedo Ludada from the Eastern Cape


Nestled in the town of Mthatha, Ncedo Ludada, found his calling in helping to improve the quality of life for people living with disabilities.

In 2016, Orthotist & Prosthetist Ludada recognized that the cost of prosthetics often prevented those in disadvantaged communities from accessing this care. This prompted him to found his life-changing initiative - the Ludada and Associates Orthopaedic Services. 

"It’s given me a deep sense of meaning and purpose... as I've realized we give hope. I hope that life is waiting to be enjoyed and lived to the fullest. Hope for the marginalized, enabling them to live a dignified life. We are helping to build a nation,” says Ludada.

Ludada is also known to always go the extra mile for his patients, even driving them to appointments if they're having commuting issues. Here is a man who is truly living up to the meaning of his Xhosa name, Ncedo, which translates to Help.

#SponsorsOfBrave 9th Nominee Professor Jerome Loveland #AdcockIngramOTC

Hi Friends,

The Sponsors of Brave campaign - ninth nominee – Professor Jerome Loveland


Professor Jerome Loveland saw an incredible need to help sick children in South Africa - to offer them the best surgeons and care regardless of their background and circumstances.

This passion to help save these 'little lives' led to the founding of a non-profit organization in 2015 called Surgeons for little lives. Today he and a small group of dedicated pediatric surgeons and ordinary people, are committed and passionate about uplifting the lives of less fortunate children needing life-changing surgery.

Watch the incredible impact that this organization has on families around South Africa.

Hi Friends,

The Sponsors of Brave campaign - eighth nominee – Pharmacist Rex Dlamini


With almost four decades of experience as a pharmacist, Rex Dlamini believes passion and patience are the keys to success.

In the 15 years that it's been running over 80 assistants have gone on to be the breadwinners of their families. Rex also supports a local old age center and the association for the mentally challenged areas and his vegetable garden program helps those who are unemployed provide for their families. To help fundraise and promote healthy living he also hosts the Gazamed marathon each year.

In Rex's own words, "If I have something, can't I also help my fellow man?"

#SponsorsOfBrave 7th Nominee Doctor Hugo Tempelman #AdcockIngramOTC

Hi Friends,

The Sponsors of Brave campaign - seventh nominee - Doctor Hugo Tempelman


Doctor Hugo Tempelman found his calling in the Moutse Valley area of Limpopo almost 30 years ago. After seeing the need for proper healthcare in the area, he and his wife, Liesje, decided to open a clinic, and in 1994 they mortgaged their own home to fund the build.

What started as a small health clinic, Ndlovu Medical Centre, has since expanded into a Non-Profit-Organisation, the Ndlovu Care Group that addresses healthcare, child and youth needs, WASH (Water Sanitation and Hygiene), infrastructure support and research for improved community development.

One of the most well-known initiatives to date is the Ndlovu Youth Choir. Started as a sanctuary and healing program for vulnerable children in the area, the vocal powerhouse group achieved international fame at the 2019 America's Got Talent competition.

Templeman is known by his community as a generous and compassionate pillar of hope and strength. He has been given a Zulu name 'Hlanganani' by the people of Moutse, which means “he who brings people together”. Templeman views this is a great honor because he believes that’s what he has been trying to do for the past 30 years.

#TheLifesWayReviews - SHIMLA MIRCHI @NetflixSA #Movie #Comedy #ShimlaMirchi

Hi Friends, 

Shimla Mirchi is a situational romantic comedy and a light-hearted movie that you can enjoy with your family. Shimla Mirchi stars Hema Malani as Rukmani, Rakul Preet Singh as Naina, Rukmani's daughter, Kanwaljit Singh as Tilak, Naina's father, and Rajkummar Rao as Avinash. The movie also stars Shakti Kapoor, Kiran Juneja, Kamlesh Gill, and Dharmendra in a special appearance along with Ramesh Sippy. The movie is written, produced, and directed by Ramesh Sippy himself and was distributed by Viacom18 Motion Pictures. The movie was released in theatres on 3 January 2020 and was soon available on Netflix's online platform and app. 
#TheLifesWayReviews - SHIMLA MIRCHI @NetflixSA #Movie #Comedy #ShimlaMirchi
The movie is really great to watch once during these lockdown times as it brings light-hearted comedy and the acting of Hema Malini needs no introduction. It's really a pleasure to see her live on screen in this movie and Rajkummar Rao has acted just like he does in every movie - perfect to the character. Rakul looks beautiful and her screen presence brings a lot of cuteness and charm on the big screen. The songs are okay but not worthy of remembering and the music is composed by Meet Bros Anjjan. You should definitely watch the movie this weekend on Netflix's digital platform. The story is not so different as it shows the love story of a boy fallen in love with a girl and works as a waiter at her restaurant despite being fully educated and a third angle is introduced when the mother thinks that the boy loves her but the situation is used just like it used to be in Priyadarshan movies but overall you won't waste your 2 hours watching this fun ride in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, India. RATING 2.5/5
