First students graduate from Rural Youth Corps

first_img17 April 2014Six thousand young people graduated from the four-year National Rural Youth Corps (Narysec) programme at Thaba Nchu College of Education in the Free State on Tuesday.South Africa launched its National Rural Youth Service Corps in 2010. The programme was established by the Department of Rural Development and is designed to complement the government’s job creation model.The Youth Corps aims to help transform young people in the rural areas from being job seekers to being job creators in their own right, as well as reducing their dependency on social grants.Speaking at the graduation ceremony on Tuesday, Gugile Nkwinti, the minister of Rural Development and Land Reform, said, “In the coming years, we will be talking about a changed and different rural [life] in South Africa.“It is equally reasonable to predict that because of skilling and creating employment for our young people in our rural areas through Narysec, [it] is bearing fruit.”Rural upliftmentThe long-term programme, which also aims to uplift rural areas with services and infrastructure, started out with 7 900 participants. There were now about 14 000 people enrolled in the programme, Nkwinti said.In 2012, the recruitment drive for the programme was increased from four to six people per rural ward and include residents aged between 18 and 35 who have completed Grade 10. They are trained in technical, artisan and social-work skills.“The Presidency is the developer of youth policy in the country,” Obed Bapela, the Deputy Minister in the Presidency: Performance, Monitoring and Evaluation, said at the ceremony.“Narysec is indeed becoming an intervention programme taking young people, who are unskilled and unemployed in the rural areas, and giving them a second opportunity to be able to get the necessary skills to either seek employment or start their own entrepreneurial opportunities.“It is a very good programme and it has been supported and sustained. We hope that other departments will develop their own programmes that are similar to Narysec to [counter the] challenge of youth skills development,” he said.‘Invaluable opportunities’A graduate of Narysec, Colbert Mabasa, 29, from Mukhomi village in Limpopo who was attending the ceremony, told SANews that the programme created invaluable job opportunities for young people.“My life has changed because of the construction and agricultural skills that I’ve acquired through the programme. I value this programme and I can see the difference the programme is making to young people’s lives, mostly in rural areas.“I know how to build, plaster and make roofing. Before I started with this programme in 2010, I was unemployed and unskilled.“Currently, I am building houses for people in my village. I’ve already registered my construction company and I’ve employed five local people,” he said.Mabasa was part of a group that visited China recently to learn agricultural skills. He also runs a two-hectare garden where he grows vegetables to sell to retailers.“I’ve been sitting doing nothing at home since I matriculated in 2008 as there was no money for me to further my studies. My results were also not good. But now this programme has changed my life for the better and I’m always working very hard so that I can also change the lives of other young people in my village,” he said.HeadquartersThe graduation ceremony was preceded by the handing over of Thaba Nchu College of Education to the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform by Free State Premier Ace Magashule.The college is now the headquarters of the Youth Corps programme. It will also be used as the permanent exhibition centre of the 1913 Land Act Exhibition.SAinfo reporter and SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

SKA South Africa unveils ‘First Light’ image from outer space

first_imgCD AndersonThe Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope project, near the town of Carnarvon in the remote Northern Cape, revealed the first image of space taken using the project’s first phase of 16 fully-functioning MeerKAT receptor units.Named ‘First Light’, the image was presented at an onsite function held on 16 July 2016.SKA SOUTH AFRICA – Google Search https://t.co/rkUO4fplxv pic.twitter.com/PZ5Z7402uv— Sonia (@S_o_n_i_a) July 9, 2016The presentation formed part of a tour of the SKA facilities by other ministers and 11 government deputy ministers, invited by Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor.Among the dignitaries was Ebrahim Patel, minister of economic development and member of the Presidential Infrastructure Co-ordinating Commission (PICC).Infrastructure investment is a key priority of the National Development Plan and the New Growth Path, and the SKA project is one of 18 strategic infrastructure projects identified by the PICC as a priority for national economic growth.The aim of the tour, said Pandor, was to create project ambassadors in the government to spread the message of SKA’s ground-breaking work in the field of astro-science that aided South Africa’s reputation as a global scientific player, as well as to highlight the positive impact of the project on the people of Carnarvon.Min Pandor and Dep Minister during the visit to the SKA tdy, NCape pic.twitter.com/8DfnhprdcU— tommy makhode (@tommymakhode) July 16, 2016‘First Light’SKA’s chief scientist, Dr Fernando Camilo, unveiled the ‘First Light’ image during the ministers’ visit, beginning with some background about how radio wave technology worked and how it was evolving as SKA itself advanced.Highlighting the differences between images taken with a conventional visual telescope – one in Chile – and a smaller radio telescope array in the United States, Camilo said the image captured by the 16-unit array – a quarter of its prospective capacity – was much clearer and lot more detailed than anything captured before. It revealed over 1 300 galaxies in a tiny corner of the universe where only 70 were known before.A particular highlight of the image shows what is known as a Fanaroff-Riley Class 2 (FR2) object: a massive black hole in the distant universe. In the image, matter can be seen falling into the black hole and producing the bright dot at the centre. The FR2 object launches jets of powerful electrons moving at close to the speed of light, emitting radio waves that are then detected with the array. (Refer to the images in the above tweet)Camilo called the SKA array, as it is now, operating on a quarter of its potential, a “remarkable image machine”. These latest image developments were “beautiful and far better than we could have expected”. Once the full array of 64 MeerKATs was completed, the possibilities for uncovering clearer and more noteworthy cosmic events was a very exciting prospect.Global infrastructure for the worldEarlier today, @dstgovza Minister Naledi #Pandor commissioned 16 dishes of the 64-dish MeerKAT completed so far #SKA pic.twitter.com/sLr1XDv80P— SA Gov News (@SAgovnews) July 16, 2016In her keynote address, Pandor, a passionate advocate of SKA, noted “the dedicated work of hundreds of engineers, scientists, managers and other staff, and South African and international industrial partners, as well as the support of the government and people of South Africa for more than a decade”.The project would turn innovation and development activities into real economic benefits for the people of the area and reputation of the country. Africa’s role in the global science community was vital and very much assured, she said. “We are building a global infrastructure for the world.”What is SKA?The Square Kilometre Array South Africa is a radio telescope project made up of a series of receptor dishes called MeerKATs that collect sensitive radio wave frequencies from outer space, detecting objects millions, even billions of light years away from Earth. The SKA facility then processes the huge amounts of data gathered from these radio waves to formulate images of the objects – including the birth of stars and the forming of new galaxies.Scientists use the information and images gathered by SKA telescopes to better understand how the universe evolved and continues to change.South Africa hosts the bulk of the SKA project, with investments by the government and private research partners totalling more than R3-billion ($205m).#MeerKAT #SKA #FirstLight(Infographic courtesy SKA Africa @SKA_Africa) pic.twitter.com/gSzqwzpXXe— CD Anderson (@bizarrojerri) July 18, 2016Currently the South African SKA site has 16 fully-functioning MeerKAT dishes, with the full array of 64 receptors expected to be completed by the end of 2017. This will make it part of the world’s most powerful radio telescope system.Set to be completed by 2020, the entire SKA system of 3 000 dishes in locations around the world, including in Australia, South America and the UK, will give astronomy, physics and a host of other sciences an almost limitless amount of data with which to advance human understanding of the universe.The South African section of the project alone has more than 500 global scientific groupsin line to use the Northern Cape array for research and discovery work over the next five years, bringing in much science tourism revenue.“What this will do is bring to South African and world astronomers the most astonishing and profoundly powerful instrument ever used before in radio astronomy,” SKA South Africa Project director Rob Adam said at the visit on Saturday.SouthAfrica.info reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SouthAfrica.info materiallast_img read more

Knicks block LeBron James at the finish, rally to beat Lakers

first_imgGoogle Philippines names new country director James’ shot didn’t go in. Didn’t even get to the rim.Mario Hezonja blocked James’ shot with 2.3 seconds to play, allowing New York to complete a late rally and beat the Los Angeles Lakers 124-123 on Sunday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics“To beat a great player, sometimes you’ve got to do the unexpected and you’ve got to make big plays,” Knicks coach David Fizdale said, “because you know that they’re gearing up to make a big play.”The Lakers led by 11 with under 3 ½ minutes remaining before the Knicks charged back largely because of their defense against James. DeAndre Jordan also blocked one of his shots in the final minute, and James also missed a jumper with the Lakers clinging to a one-point lead. Bloomberg: US would benefit from more, not fewer, immigrants Knicks: Fizdale said starters Dennis Smith Jr. (sore lower back) and Noah Vonleh (sprained right ankle) were day-to-day and that G Frank Ntilikina (groin) was progressing, though there’s still no timetable for his return.ON THE JOB TRAININGThough rookie Kevin Knox has shot miserably in his first season, Fizdale thought games like Sunday and then Monday against Toronto were good for the first-round pick, no matter how he shot, because they were learning experiences.“Back-to-back games, I think it’s going to be good for him. LeBron today and obviously Kawhi (Leonard) tomorrow, so welcome to the league, kid, and this is what it’s about. This is why I wanted him in this,” Fizdale said. “Take those lumps now and later on in his career no one will remember this stuff, when he now is the guy that’s beating up on the kids.

A blood clot caused shoulder pain for Ingram, and Walton said he hadn’t been comfortable talking about Ingram’s health while he and the team were gathering information on treatment options.“I’m thrilled for him,” Walton said. “He’s a young man that has his whole future ahead of him so it was good to hear that everything was successful.”UP NEXTLakers: Visit Milwaukee on Tuesday.Knicks: Visit Toronto on Monday.

And it appeared his Lakers would ease to the victory when James’ jumper with 3:44 to play gave them a 122-111 lead.But everything changed from there and the Knicks ended up with just their NBA-low 14th victory of the season.“We didn’t close the game out. Being the competitor that I am, it bothers me that I didn’t make enough plays down the stretch. It bothers me that I didn’t even get a shot at the hoop. Of course that stuff bothers me,” James said.“But what’s the difference between their record and our record? Two teams out of the postseason. So it’s no difference. We could have a couple of more wins than them but both teams right now are looking on the outside looking in.”James’ trip to one of his favorite arenas was his first in a long time where his team has no championship hopes, where instead of All-Star teammates, his Lakers had as many mismatched parts as the Knicks. James got the usual big cheers for an exciting play, but also the type of criticism he has rarely faced during his career.Cameras showed James sitting all the way at the end of the bench during first-half play, far from some teammates. Knicks TV analyst Walt Frazier criticized James for not publicly being more part of the team, saying James “doesn’t really care” about the perception.The Knicks made 11 of their 15 shots, and even when they missed it wasn’t because of great Lakers defense. Of their four misses, two were unsuccessful dunk attempts by Jordan.They finished 16 of 22 in the period to lead 41-30, but the Lakers outscored them 36-22 in the second to bring a 66-63 edge into halftime.TIP-INSLakers: Josh Hart returned after missing a game with right knee patellar tendinitis. Lance Stephenson missed a fifth straight game with foot/toe injuries. SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte James finished with 33 points, eight assists and six rebounds in his return after sitting out a game, but the Knicks spoiled it with a closing 13-1 burst. James shot just 4 for 15 in the final quarter.“He just missed shots,” Hezonja said. “If you are saying that you are the reason that he is missing shots, you are an idiot.”Actually, Hezonja was one of the reasons after getting the assignment in his return to the rotation after not playing since Feb. 13, sitting out 12 straight games.Emmanuel Mudiay had 28 points and eight assists for the Knicks, who snapped an eight-game losing streak. His two free throws with 22 seconds remaining were the final points of the game.Kyle Kuzma added 18 points for the Lakers, who have lost three straight and eight of nine.ADVERTISEMENT View comments MOST READ Trump tells impeachment jokes at annual turkey pardon event Miguel Romero Polo: Bamboo technology like no other Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Worlds Largest Boxship Wraps Up Maiden Voyage

first_imgMSC Gülsün, the world’s largest containership, has arrived in Europe after completing its maiden voyage from the north of China, Swiss Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) said.MSC Gülsün is the first of a new class of 23,000+ TEU vessels to be added in 2019-2020 to the company’s global fleet. Ten other ships in this class have been ordered by MSC.Built at the Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) Geoje shipyard in South Korea and delivered in July this year, MSC Gülsün is said to set a new standard in container shipping, in particular in terms of environmental performance.With a length of some 400 meters long and a width of more than 60 meters, the Panama-flagged MSC Gülsün has a record-size capacity for a containership – 23,756 TEU.As explained, this new class has been designed with environmental, efficiency, stability and safety matters in mind. One of the features is the vessel’s shape of the bow designed to enhance energy efficiency by reducing hull resistance. What is more, ship wind resistance is minimized, resulting in lower fuel consumption. Additionally, it is possible to connect the ship to shore power, enabling it to tap local power sources in port.MSC Gülsün’s improved energy efficiency and fuel economy ensure that MSC is on track to meet international 2030 environmental policy targets set by the UN International Maritime Organization (IMO) ahead of time, building on a 13 percent improvement in CO2 emissions per ton of cargo moved already achieved across the MSC fleet between 2015 and 2018, the company said.To comply with an upcoming marine fuel regulation in 2020, the ship is also equipped with a UN IMO-approved hybrid scrubber and has the option of switching to low-sulphur fuel or to be adapted for liquified natural gas in the future.MSC Gülsün and its 10 sister ships are also all designed to meet the next steps in digital shipping by enabling fast data transmission to shore and connection for smart containers.SHI will deliver six of the new class of ships, while SHI’s compatriot shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) is constructing the other five units.Image Courtesy: MSCRead more: World’s Largest Boxship Arrives at Port of Tanjung Pelepaslast_img read more
