The beer industry is still in recovery from the devastation caused by 19 weeks of no trade.

If government decides to implement restrictions or a ban on the sale of alcohol again, it should give the industry “a rational reason for signing this veritable death warrant”, Zoleka Lisa, vice president of corporate affairs at SA Breweries said in a statement on Friday.

Lisa’s comments come in the wake of reports that Health Minister Zweli Mkhize’s advisors have recommended tighter restrictions on gatherings and liquor sales ahead of a series of upcoming public holidays, including the Easter weekend. Experts have warned that a third wave of the virus could be even deadlier than the first or the second. 

Scientists and government officials have also warned that a third wave of coronavirus infections could surface soon after the long Easter weekend, News24 reported. 

“Unjust and reactive regulations will do more harm

2 Compelling Dividend Stocks Yielding at Least 8%; Oppenheimer Says ‘Buy’

The crises of the past year – the COVID pandemic, the social lockdowns, the economic shock – are on the wane, and that’s good. However, the crisis post-mortems are rolling in. It’s only natural to compare the current economic crisis to the ‘Great Recession’ of 12 years ago, but as Oppenheimer’s chief investment strategist John Stoltzfus points out, “Considering the differences in what caused the Great Financial Crisis of a little more than 12 years ago… and the current crisis… it’s little wonder that as good as things are when compared to this time last year there remains much to be revealed as to how the exit and the legacy of the pandemic crisis will take shape…” Stoltzfus also believes that the economic data, while suffering some setbacks, is generally resilient. Markets are rising, and that, as Stoltzfus

As Meme Stock Mania Fizzles, Wall Street Sees ‘Big Reckoning’

(Bloomberg) — The day-trading Reddit crowd turned the first quarter of 2021 into one of the wildest periods of stock market mania in modern history. Books — plural — will undoubtedly be dedicated to the topic in years to come.But after these small-time speculators banded together to drive up dozens of obscure stocks by hundreds or even thousands of percent — and in the process burned a few hedge-fund barons betting on declines — the movement appears to be petering out. An index that tracks 37 of the most popular meme stocks — 37 of the 50 that Robinhood Markets banned clients from trading during the height of the frenzy — is essentially unchanged over the past two months after soaring nearly 150% in January.Talk to Wall Street veterans and they’ll tell you that this flat-lining is the beginning

“It’s crazy. There is no inventory,” the CEO of KB Home told CNN Business.

For wannabe buyers, the shortage of homes on the market, combined with a surge of competition from other purchasers is setting off bidding wars, all-cash offers and no end of sticker shock.

But this one-two punch of very low supply and roaring demand is suiting homebuilders just fine.

“This is the best housing market I’ve seen in my career,” Mezger said. “It’s a good time to be a homebuilder.”

KB Home’s first-quarter profit swelled by 62%. It handled more home transactions than in any first quarter since 2008. The company’s backlog surged by 74% in value, and nearly doubled in the West Coast.

“There isn’t a city we’re in where I would say it’s a tough market,” Mezger said.

Not only is KB Home (KBH) making far more money now than a year ago,

South Africa’s liquor industry pays R2.5 billion a month in excise duties

  • The alcohol industry, which pays an average of R2.5 billion in excise tax every month, has been pleading with government to halt the annual increase this year, saying it would have to take “drastic action” to cut costs. 
  • Excise tax is the largest cost for manufacturers and the industry contributes R172 billion (3%) to the country’s GDP.
  • The industry says the 8% increase in alcohol duties will result in tens of thousands of job losses.

South Africa’s alcohol industry says “tens of thousands” of jobs are on the line, following Finance Minister Tito Mboweni’s announcement of an 8% excise tax increase on liquor and tobacco.

Over past few weeks, the industry – which pays an average of R2.5 billion per month in excise tax – has been pleading with government to halt the annual increase this year,

Washington, D.C. – Today the International Code Council, the leading global source of model codes and standards and building safety solutions, released a new framework to assist governments and building industry stakeholders in meeting energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction goals.  

The Code Council Board of Directors, which consists of 18 government code officials who were elected by their peers, adopted the framework, Leading the Way to Energy Efficiency: A Path Forward on Energy and Sustainability to Confront a Changing Climate. This framework includes using the Code Council’s American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved standards process to update the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).  

Future editions of the IECC will build on prior successes including an increase of efficiency requirements by about 40%, or an average of 8% a cycle from 2006 to 2021, allowing the IECC to remain a strong avenue for communities to reach their energy efficiency

An industry is a group of businesses that make or sell similar products or perform similar services. Farms are part of the agricultural industry. Factories are part of manufacturing industries. Schools are part of the educational services industry. Industries are important to every country’s economy.

The first human industry was agriculture. Most developing countries still depend on agriculture as their main industry.

Another early industry was mining, or the removal of metals and other materials from the earth. Since prehistoric times humans have mined metals to make tools and other goods.

Manufacturing industries make goods from the raw materials produced by agriculture and mining. Manufacturers make such everyday items as clothing, cars, computers, paper, and processed food. Another manufacturing industry is construction. Construction workers build houses, office buildings, roads, bridges, and sewers.

Service industries dominate the economies of developed countries. Workers in service industries do not provide actual goods. Instead
