Finding out information (which I should have known) at 12:30 midnight before a paper is due, is not boding well for my non-panic-mode mode. My brain has shut off. MAN DOWN.
Globalization itself is an intrinsic feature of the evolution of human society. It has brought into existence a socio-economic culture that, at the practical level, constitutes the world in which the aspirations of the human race will be pursued in the century now opening.
No objective observer, if he is fair-minded in his judgement, will deny that both of the two contradictory reactions it is arousing are, in large measure, well justified.
The unification of human society, forged by the fires of the twentieth century, is a reality that with every passing day opens breathtaking new possibilities.
A reality also being forced on serious minds everywhere, is the claim of justice to be the one means capable of harnessing these great potentialities to the advancement of civilization.
It no longer requires the gift of prophecy to realize that the fate of humanity in the century now opening will be determined by the relationship established between these two fundamental forces of the historical process, the inseparable principles of unity and justice.

OH YOU GUYS I FOUND A GEM AND I AM SOOOO EXCITED TO SHARE THIS WITH YOU!!!
Coffices (coffee shop offices) are a huge thing all over the world, and we are very lucky to have quite a few awesome places to work at in Joburg.
A couple of days ago a friend of mine had asked about where one could go to in JHB, to basically sit and work the whole day (with free wifi), but that didn’t necessarily smell like coffee.
This morning, quite by luck, I found THIS place, which has been open for THREE DAYS.
The Hill is a BEAUTIFUL restaurant situated at Constitution Hill. It is open an airy and beautiful to sit at, either inside or out (outside comes with chess and ping pong tables). And it has free wifi. That could be all the information you may need, but in case you want some more here it is:
The Hill is open Monday to Friday 8am-5pm, with secure underground parking in the Constitutional Court precinct.
They had an amazing menu a large variety of vegetarian items (the most expensive thing I saw were Ribs for R100). It’s a test menu at the moment, and it seems that it will be changed based on the season, which is epic because that means you get to eat fresh stuff.
Unfortunately I didn’t get to try any of the food save for a chip offered to me by a guy who was sitting there, and as per his advice “a french fry [chip] is a pretty good barometer of how good the food at a restaurant is”. That chip was AMAZING. I am totally going back there to munch on something. (Vincent the manager says that his favourite item is the pulled pork sandwich)
The venue is spacious and beautiful (yes I know I’ve said that already) and is available for private events (Birthday parties? Wknd Social? hint hint).
You can contact them on 011 339 1005 or info(at)thehillcafe.co.za.
Hopefully we’ll catch each other there for lunch soon, but if not, tell Vincent that Amy sent you, and tell a friend!
*p.s. Just found out that the team who designed the restaurant’s beee—yoo-teee-full inside and out is the Local Studio urban architectural design team (Check out their website here, or their fb page here. ) together with Emmaneel VD Merwe from New Found Form who did the branding and art direction.
