  • Active citizens ‘key to Development Plan’

    first_img17 November 2011A key aspect of South Africa’s new National Development Plan, a blueprint for creating sustainable growth and development in the country over the next two decades, is its emphasis on active citizenry, says Brand South Africa CEO Miller Matola.According to Matola, the plan – which seeks to create a “virtuous cycle of growth and development” by removing the most pressing constraints to investment and job creation – is set to improve South Africa’s international reputation and competitiveness.“In these fraught times, with Europe hovering on the brink and America’s economic recovery under threat, having a coherent vision for the country through 2030 could do much to improve South Africa’s competitiveness,” Matola said in a statement on Thursday.“International experiences suggests that trade, tourism and particularly investment respond well to the kind of long-term policy planning we as a nation are doing.”The National Development Plan, which will be refined through public engagement before going to Cabinet, was presented to President Jacob Zuma by Trevor Manuel, chairman of the National Planning Commission, in Pretoria on Friday.The wide-ranging draft plan aims to eliminate poverty and sharply reduce inequality in the country by 2030.It intends doing this by concentrating on, among other things, expanding infrastructure, building a capable state, moving to inclusive planning, creating jobs and uniting the nation.Citizens who Play their PartThe call to get citizens to Play their Part is already an essential ingredient of South Africa’s national debate.For many years, ordinary South Africans have found ways to strengthen society, democracy and the economy. From creating employment opportunities, to mentoring young students, to starting up small and medium enterprises, South Africans have been pursuing sustainable means to make their society and local communities better for all.Matola says that a fundamental shift the National Development Plan (NDP) proposes – from passive to active citizenry – will be the basis on which the whole approach will be built.“What needs to happen now, as highlighted by the NDP, is that as South Africans we take accountability, and make it our responsibility to have a say in our democracy, development and prosperity,” Matola said. “It is about taking things back to basics – involved citizenship and participation.‘We can no longer afford to be ambivalent’“From understanding the Constitution, to pursuing ventures to better the lives of our children and future generations, and being accountable for our environment and surroundings in the midst of climate change, we can no longer afford to be ambivalent about meeting these challenges.”Another notable aspect of the NDP, says Matola, is the call to build a capable state. This will mean that the best people must work for the state – and not just to pursue a good career opportunity but also because they want to serve the people of the country.“The best condition for an improved public service is to encourage especially younger professionals to enter the public sector and build and maintain the capacity required for better service delivery for all,” Matola said.“We all need to play our part, contribute to the National Plan and make sure that the milestones we achieve translate into better functioning communities and a better society.”SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

  • SA women in science honoured

    first_img27 August 2012 South African women whose work in the scientific field has helped change their communities were acknowledged by Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor at the Women in Science Awards in Pretoria on Friday. Winners were presented with certificates and prize money of up to R170 000. The Women in Science Awards seek to honour and acknowledge the country’s women’s achievements in the field of science and research and the department has hosted the event since 2003. The categories include Fellowship for Masters and doctorate students, distinguished women scientists and distinguished young women scientists. Speaking at the awards ceremony in Centurion on Friday night, Pandor said the awards have become a feature of South Africa’s celebration of Women’s Month and the achievement made by women in the predominantly male-dominated field of science. “Many of us have a very esoteric view of science and really do not always make the link that it definitely has answers to many of the challenges that our societies have to address,” Pandor said. She called on women scientists to focus on rural areas and use science to make a difference to women who are vulnerable. Assisting women in rural areas through science “For our part as government, we really are centering science and technology in the thought of policy action of South Africa, so we are really thrilled we have been able to recognise remarkable women who are doing research and innovation, which has begun to make a significant contribution to the development of rural women,” Pandor said. Professor Relebohile Moletsane walked away with the Distinguished Woman Scientist Award. She has published several articles and book chapters on using digital technology and digital story-telling in rural communities, with a focus on HIV/Aids education. She said her goal was to ensure that vulnerable societies had all the necessary information about HIV/Aids and how the disease operates. Dr Rapela Maphanga from the University of Limpopo won the Distinguished Young Women Scientist Award for her research on computer simulations of energy-storage device materials. She has published her research findings in high profile scientific journals and is a junior associate at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Italy. Maphanga has supervised to completion one PhD student, four masters and six honours students. “I believe that the solution for most of our problems lies in science so my aim is to make the little contribution that I can to achieve change and development in our communities,” she said. In the students’ category, seven of the 10 awards in this category went to University of Cape Town science students, with prize money ranging from R20 000 to R30 000. The students were required to use the money towards research work or buying a laptop for research purposes. Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

  • Get Legit Answers to Your SEO Questions With SEOMoz Q&A

    first_imgTags:#biz#Software Guides#tips 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… This new Q&A forum appears to be an extension of that community, and SEOMoz has built controls into it to help ensure that the site’s information remains of high quality. For starters, while members of the free version of SEOMoz can read threads, questions can only be asked and answersed by pro members or SEOMoz staff. Like Quora and other Q&A sites, answers can be voted up or down. They’ve also built a little bit of game mechanics into the platform. For example, members can earn points (“mozPoints”) by answering questions, or if that response gets voted up. To encourage users to populate the site with content quickly, extra points are given when responses are posted within four hours of a question being asked. john paul titlow Need some clarity on keyword research tools, XML sitemaps or search marketing best practices? Good news: The search engine optimization (SEO) resource site SEOMoz has launched a Q&A forum for its pro members. In relaunching its Q&A site, SEOMoz is opening up the dialogue to members of their community, rather than just having SEOMoz staff members answer questions. When it comes to SEO and Web marketing, there is often a thin line between acceptable and frowned-upon practices, and there is no shortage of self-proclaimed gurus trying to sell their expertise to businesses large and small. As a result, it can sometimes be challenging to find resources that are reliable and reputable.SEOMoz has managed to establish itself as one of those resources, offering up a fairly comprehensive repository of SEO and online marketing information and tools. In addition to its own staff, the site is home to a community of SEO and online marketing experts, whose collective expertise tends to lend itself to a more thorough, less spammy approach to SEO.

  • A Passivhaus Debut Just South of San Francisco

    first_imgSome of the most pleasant (and priciest) neighborhoods in the San Francisco Bay Area are those in south-central San Mateo County – places like Palo Alto and Menlo Park, where the homes range in style from suburban contemporary to Mission stucco, and the climate ranges from chilly and wet in the winter to dry and warm during summer months – a season when nights happen to be reliably cool and comfortable.This week, Clarum Homes, a custom builder based in Palo Alto, will unveil what the company says is the first residence in the county designed and built to meet the Passivhaus standard. Clarum, in partnership with building-materials specialist Owens Corning, is making its case for Passivhaus efficiency and comfort with a well insulated, nearly airtight Mission-style home in west Menlo Park, a short distance from Stanford University.Passivhaus, with renewable-energy appliancesThe R-30 roof and R-44 exterior walls of the 3,300-sq.-ft. four-bedroom house were constructed of 12-in. structural insulated panels that were coated on the outside with an elastomeric sealant, then wrapped with a layer of Owens Corning Foamular rigid foam before being clad with three-layer stucco. The R-10 slab is insulated underneath with 2 in. of Styrofoam.SIP seams and joints on the inside were caulked and taped, and then sprayed with Owens Corning’s EnergyComplete synthetic-latex foam. EnergyComplete also was used on the 2×6 framing of the garage, which was insulated with fiberglass batts.The windows in the house are triple-glazed. Most were made by Gaulhofer, of Austria, although Serious Energy fiberglass windows are used in wet areas such as bathrooms and, because those windows are available with low-profile stiles and rails, in the vaulted sections of the great room. Solar tubes were installed in some of the closets, hallways, and a couple of the bedrooms that are heavily shaded by trees. The house showed slightly under 1 air change per hour at 50 Pascals pressure difference during a blower-door test administered before final air sealing and finish work were done, and a final test will be scheduled soon.To push energy costs down further, the house is equipped with a 4-kW photovoltaic system (Sharp panels with micro inverters) and a solar hot water system.Construction costs came to about $220 per sq. ft. The house is listed at $2,695,000.last_img read more
