    Discovery Vitality 2021

    Whats the difference between Vitality and Vitality Active? I'm starting a new job and I see that Vitality is R290 and Vitality Active is R89. I'm either a horrible googler or I can't find any info on this online?

    WATCH: Engineers move 8000 tonne bridge 14m sideways in Western Cape

    It depends on the situation. I'm not familiar with the Site and its various requirements but there would be some reasoning for this - i.e space, the construction of the arches, traffic accommodation or some other practical constraint. Bridge's and especially large bridges like this have a ton...

    WATCH: Engineers move 8000 tonne bridge 14m sideways in Western Cape

    Ordinarily, bridges are launched longitudinally. When it comes to bridges of this kind of magnitude, its normal practice to cast and then launch using hydraulic jacks to "push" the bridge along the length of it, per segment which is cast (in concrete). In this case, segments were cast and...

    SA diplomat who 'trashed' apartment in Vienna accused of causing damage worth R53k in India

    It's not about which country is worser. I'm not arguing morality of countries. The posters wanted a single example of a diplomat from the US who has committed a worse offence. I have provided it.

    SA diplomat who 'trashed' apartment in Vienna accused of causing damage worth R53k in India

    How is this whataboutism? The poster wanted an example of someone from the US who has done worse. Nothing about intent was mentioned. Please read :)

    You mentioned nothing about intent. Just wanted an example of someone from the US who has done worse, as a diplomat

    SA diplomat who 'trashed' apartment in Vienna accused of causing damage worth R53k in India

    The context of the post was not the intent, but whether or not a US diplomat has done worse. I would classify a murder far worse than trashing a hotel room.

    SA diplomat who 'trashed' apartment in Vienna accused of causing damage worth R53k in India

    I don't see false equivalence - you asked for an example where a US diplomat has done worse

    SA diplomat who 'trashed' apartment in Vienna accused of causing damage worth R53k in India

    Agreed that the South African case is not an accident, but to respond to your original point - I'm of the opinion that culpable homicide and getting away with it is far worse than trashing a hotel room

    Not excusing the dude trashing the room, but this comes to mind, quite recently. https://www.npr.org/2020/01/24/799143167/u-s-wont-hand-over-wife-of-american-diplomat-wanted-in-fatal-u-k-car-crash American diplomat's wife killed a dude in a car crash and got away scot free

    eHomeAffairs - getting it to work for you

    Update on my situation: It turns out that they didn't register me picking up my passport 10 years ago and that the reason the forms would not load is that I had an existing application open. I went to home affairs at 5AM, saw the line and donated to secure my spot as second in line. Home...
