Roads boost for business in Limpopo

Posted on by

first_img9 October 2013 President Jacob Zuma on Tuesday unveiled the newly built R81 road linking the city of Polokwane and the rural town of Giyani in Limpopo province. Zuma said the government had invested R245-million in the construction of R81, which would make it quicker and easier to move people and goods between Polokwane and Giyani, which is not far from the Kruger National Park. Construction of the 61.5-kilometre stretch of road started in September 2010 and was completed in July this year, creating 455 jobs in the process. Zuma said he was also pleased with progress in the construction of the new R71 road between Polokwane and Tzaneen, the province’s second-largest town. “A broader road will be more passable and will lessen accidents, especially as we know that this road is used by a lot of the members of the Zion Christian Church in their pilgrimages to the church,” he said. The R71 leads to the Kruger National Park via the Phalaborwa gate, and will therefore allow for easier travel to tourist destinations in the province. The President said the government had prioritised the development of infrastructure to boost inclusive economic growth, create jobs and improve the living and working conditions of South Africans. “We want to create infrastructure that makes life easy everywhere, not just in the big cities. That is why we’ve upgraded roads here in Limpopo and in other parts of the country. South Africa spends about R10-billion to service and re-tar roads each year. To build one kilometre of new tarred road can cost up to R25-million. Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

South African fathers develop baby ‘survival kit’

Posted on by

first_img30 April 2014Two South African fathers have adapted a 1930s Finnish design to come up with a box aimed at supporting South African mothers with newborns.The Thula Baba Box will be made out of plastic and will include essential items, such as clothes, sheets, nappies, health products, and toys. The box itself can double up as a cot, a bath or be used to safely store items.Crucially, the box will also contain information targeted at mothers, as well as incentives to encourage expectant mothers to visit antenatal clinics earlier and more frequently.The project is being driven by De Villiers, a marketing executive, and Hertzog, founder of Action Hero Ventures, a “very early-stage angel fund” based in Stellenbosch that invests in creative and technology start-ups.The pair, who are both fathers, say the box aims to improve the overall wellness of mothers and babies.‘Amazing example’The concept is based on a 1938 initiative by the Finnish government that supplied expectant mothers with a similar box. The box is credited with helping to decrease Finland’s infant mortality rate from 65 deaths for each 1 000 children born in 1938 to 3 deaths per 1 000 births in 2013, Action Hero Ventures say on their website.“We thought the Finnish box was an amazing example of design that changed a nation,” said Hertzog. “We hope that, given some tweaks, our product will have just as much of an impact.”The project is being run in partnership with the Western Cape Government Department of Health, the Department of Economics at Stellenbosch University, and the J-PAL Africa Incubation Fund, which has provided funding.“We are looking forward to seeing the impact of the study [by health economists at Stellenbosch University] on lower-income families in the Western Cape,” De Villiers said.PotentialIt is expected that the box will be distributed to mothers throughout the Western Cape by 2016 and to the rest of South Africa by 2020.The project has been selected as an official 2014 World Design Capital Cape Town project.“We find it encouraging that two fathers are proactively engaged in a collaborative initiative to improve the lives of both babies and mothers in the Western Cape,” Tracey Naledi, chief director of health programmes, said. “We encourage such initiatives that are particularly aimed to support the first 1 000 days of life, and are excited to see the results of the study.”Ronelle Burger at Stellenbosch University’s Department of Economics, said the project had great potential to improve the lives of mothers and babies as it not only distributed products and information, but also offered incentives to change behaviour.“Similar schemes have been successful in promoting health in other countries and we that this study will provide useful inputs for policy making, but also contribute to ongoing international research on the role that incentives can play in promoting better health choices,” Burger said.SAinfo reporter and World Design Capitallast_img read more

U.P. civic polls begin on November 22

Posted on by

first_imgThe BJP has fielded the highest number of ‘crorepatis’ in the 2017 Uttar Pradesh urban body election, according to data analysed by an NGO. It also had the highest number of candidates with criminal record.Voting for 452 municipal posts, including 16 Mayoral posts, will be held in three phases starting November 22. Counting will be on December 1.The data on assets were compiled by Election Watch of the Association for Democratic Reforms, which analyses elections and builds public awareness. Four out of 14, or 29%, of the BJP’s mayoral candidates in U.P. have criminal cases against them. The BSP comes a close second with 21%, or three out of 14 candidates. The SP and the Congress shared the third position among the major parties: 13% of their Mayor candidates have criminal records. The AAP has only one such candidate.Overall, 20 of the 195 candidates across U.P. for the Mayor posts have criminal records against them, 17 of them of a serious nature. Chaudhary Basheer, an independent candidate from Agra, topped the table with six criminal cases under his belt.None of the candidates in Lucknow, reserved for women this time, has a criminal background.The BJP shared the honours for candidates with the highest declared assets with the BSP. Seventy-nine percent of the candidates fielded by the BJP and BSP are crorepatis. It is 73% in the case of SP and the Congress.Overall, across U.P., 70 out of 195, or 38% of the candidates, are declared crorepatis. Navin Kumar Jain, the BJP candidate in Agra, was by far the richest with assets worth ₹409 crore, followed by his party colleague Abhilasha Gupta from Allahabad who declared ₹58 crore. Brijendra Vyas Damdam Maharaj, the BSP nominee in Jhansi, was the third richest with assets worth ₹37 crore.Anil Sharma, coordinator, U.P. Election Watch, said while there was the usual display of money power in the municipal polls, which include Nagar Palika Parishads and Nagar Panchayats, some candidates resorted to innovative ways to escape the radar of the Election Commission. If a candidate was distributing biryani in Jhansi, another in Gorakhpur was giving out free footballs. In Moradabad, a candidate tried to lure voters by distributing brass items, while in Lucknow, a candidate gifted wall clocks in his ward. In Ambedkarnagar, the ADR found, candidates were distributing free biryani and liquor.A good signThe Election Watch also observed that voters this year seemed to consider the credentials of the candidate, instead of merely focusing on party affiliations. “People have shown a tendency to back good candidates. It is a good sign,” said Sanjay Singh, coordinator of the Election Watch. But how did he come to this conclusion? “It was based on a focused group discussion involving 500 people,” he said.last_img read more

I’m ready for big move, says Premier League target Boilesen

Posted on by

first_imgTransfers I’m ready to move back to the big time, says Premier League target Boilesen Robin Bairner 00:00 5/26/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Nicolai Boilesen Denmark Getty Images Transfers Peru v Denmark Denmark Peru World Cup The 26-year-old defender has seen his career stall in recent years but is set to make Denmark’s squad for the World Cup and is in optimistic mood Copenhagen defender Nicolai Boilesen is optimistic that he will be back playing in one of Europe’s biggest leagues come the start of the season.The 26-year-old broke into the professional game at Ajax, but after falling out of favour with the Eredivisie giants due to his refusal to sign a new contract, resulting in a year frozen out of the game, he has bounced back in his native country.Such has been the quality of his return, he has been called into the extended Denmark panel for the World Cup and is expected to be named in the final squad after operating as both a left-back and a centre-back this season. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Furthermore, there have been reports that clubs in France and England have taken note of his form, and while that is something that pleases him, his focus is currently on the immediate future.“I have heard a bit about interest from different clubs from both Ligue 1 and Premier League,” he confirmed to Goal. “I also saw stories about Galatasaray in media, but to be honest, I have no idea if it is just a very vague interest or something more substantial.“It is always flattering, when you hear about interest from big clubs and the biggest leagues. But I am not the best source for these transfer stories, since I don’t hear anything until it is 100 per cent concrete. It is all with my agent. “My only focus is football – and right now it is all about finishing the season well with Copenhagen and then the World Cup.”In the longer term, though, he is seeking a move.“No doubt my ambition is to get back to the bigger leagues in Europe,” he admitted. “I don’t know whether it will be this summer or later, but I went through my football education in Ajax and with the Denmark team, and I feel that I belong in that international level.“I am back at my best, which I believe is proved by the fact that I was back in the Denmark national team for the internationals in March against Panama and Chile. I was a regular before my ‘Ajax punishment’ with one year in the deep freezer for not extending my contract, and I have missed the national team like crazy. There is nothing bigger in football than representing your country.Nicolai Boilesen CopenhagenPersonally, he sees the season as a success, having played more than 40 times for Copenhagen, who made good progress in Europe. “I am 26 now and enjoying being 100% fit. I got the taste of top-level football in the Europa League, where we lost to a top-class team like Atletico Madrid in the knockout rounds,” he said. “They were really, really good, and after facing them I was sure, that they would go on to win the trophy – as they did in great style.“For Copenhagen the season has been a sort of a transition phase and the results a bit disappointing. I don’t want to sound arrogant, but it feels strange not to win any titles, not only for this club but also for me personally. I have been used to a winning feeling; with Ajax I won four league titles and then last season I won the double with Copehagen.”Looking forward, he is confident Denmark can perform well at the World Cup, where they will face France, Peru and Australia in the group stages.“I believe that the Denmark squad has a great potential in Russia, and we definitely have the quality of players to advance from the group. Then it’s the knockout stage, and anything can happen,” he said. “Our current team is unbeaten for 13 games in a row, and that is a national record for 110 years of the national team. It has never happened before, and that shows the winning mentality of this team.”last_img read more

K-Line Fined for Violation of US Ro-Ro Antitrust Laws

Posted on by

first_imgPress Release, September 29, 2014 zoom Japanese corporation Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. (K-Line) agreed to pay a fine of USD 67.7 million having plead guilty of violating U.S. antitrust laws. The charges were raised by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) in connection with the sale of ocean shipping services for roll-on, roll-off cargo.  K-Line said that it had cooperated fully with the DOJ’s investigation and would continue to do so.“K-Line takes this matter seriously and has taken steps to further strengthen its compliance and training programs to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations,” the company said in a statement.According to the ruling of the US Department of Justice:” K-Line conspired to suppress and eliminate competition by allocating customers and routes, rigging bids and fixing prices for the sale of international ocean shipments of roll-on, roll-off cargo to and from the United States and elsewhere, including the Port of Baltimore.  K-Line participated in the conspiracy from at least as early as February 1997 until at least September 2012.”“Our efforts exposed a long-running global conspiracy that operated globally, affecting the shipping costs of staggering numbers of cars, into and out of the Port of Baltimore, and other ports in the United States and across the globe.  Today’s 8September 26th) announcement demonstrates our continuing resolve to bring the members of this conspiracy to justice, ” said Bill Baer, Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division.  “We are continuing our efforts to ensure that both the corporations and individuals involved in this cartel are held accountable for their acts and the harm they inflicted on American consumers.”According to the charge, K-Line and its co-conspirators conspired by, among other things, agreeing – during meetings and communications – on prices, allocating customers, agreeing to refrain from bidding against one another and exchanging customer pricing information.  The department said the companies then charged rates in accordance with those agreements for international ocean shipping services for certain roll-on, roll-off cargo to and from the United States and elsewhere at collusive and non-competitive prices.K-Line is charged with price fixing in violation of the Sherman Act, which carries a maximum penalty of a USD 100 million criminal fine for corporations.  The department said the maximum fine might be increased to twice the gain derived from the crime or twice the loss suffered by the victims of the crime, if either of those amounts is greater than the statutory maximum fine.The company said it would  record 7,023 million yen as an extraordinary loss in the second quarter of the consolidated cumulative term of the fiscal year ending March 2015. last_img read more
