  • Finland boosts SA small business

    first_img26 January 2006The governments of Finland and South Africa have each committed €6-million (R44.5-million) to a four-year programme to develop small business in SA.The money will go to the SA government’s Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda), with Finnish small enterprises expert Liisa Tervo working as a special advisor to Seda CEO Wawa Damane for two years.“The aim is to set up efficient service delivery systems for SMMEs in all provinces and to also reach smaller towns as well as localities,” Tervo said.The programme is to be implemented at the agency’s strategic, management and operational levels.“This will include building the capacity of management and other staff, and helping Seda develop systems of service delivery,” she said.Damane said the agency had made progress since its launch in December 2004, with an analysis of the its internal capacity, structure and strategy carried out during the course of 2005.Seda opened its first provincial office and two branches in North West province in August 2005, with support and funding from the provincial government.“To us it’s not only about setting up these offices, it’s about them responding to the needs of the people in line with their provincial growth and development strategies,” Damane said.“We’re very conscious about the needs of the entrepreneur. We want to streamline opportunities and make sure that people in the province are aware of them.”The North West government, she said, had invited the agency to convert three of its enterprise advisory offices into Seda service centres.“So by the end of this year we’ll have five centres in that province.”Seda is also set to open provincial offices in Mpumalanga, KwaZulu-Natal, Northern Cape, Free State and the Eastern Cape before the end of the current financial year. Smaller branches will also be established to function as the agency’s main service delivery points.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

  • Cold wet weather and seed viability concerns

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The week starting April 24th saw a great deal of planting progress for both corn and soybeans. In some areas, planters were rolling up until Friday April 28th, when a period of cold, wet weather arrived. Some parts of the Eastern Corn Belt experienced 3 or more inches of rain in a short amount of time with temperatures that dropped into the 40s. Many growers have expressed concern about the viability of their seed after experiencing such adverse conditions.In his article, Early-Planted Corn & Cold Weather, Purdue’s Bob Nielsen states “One of the risks that newly planted corn faces is that of imbibitional chilling injury due to cold soil temperatures during the initial 24 to 36 hours after seeding when the kernels imbibe water and begin the germination process. If the cell tissues of the kernel are too cold, they become less elastic and may rupture during the swelling process. Symptoms of imbibitional chilling injury include swollen kernels that fail to germinate or arrested growth of the radicle root and/or coleoptile following the start of germination. ” Just like corn, soybean seed is sensitive to injury during the 24 to 36 hour period as well. Understanding this critical period following planting, there is cause for concern, especially for any fields that were planted April 27th and 28th, right before the pattern of cold wet weather started. Pictured above is a corn seedling that was taken on Friday, May 5. This corn was planted midday on April 28 with soil temperature at seeding depth of 71 degrees F. As of May 5, the field where this corn was planted had experienced:• Accumulation of approximately 4.5 inches of rain • A drop in soil temperatures from 71 degrees F to 54 degrees F • Temperatures mostly in the 50s and 60s during the day • Only 64 Growing Degree Days • Multiple days where we did not accumulate any heat units(GDDS) • Continually saturated soilsThe corn pictured above has experienced severely adverse conditions from the day it was planted, but, it has sent out a radicle root as well as a shoot, is still hard, and is still viable. Current soil temperatures (54 degrees as of Friday May 5th) are still warm enough for both corn and soybeans to germinate and grow. While growers aren’t out of the woods yet, it’s not time to panic. Yes, we desperately need sunny weather and heat, but we still have adequate soil temps and viable seed that is growing. It will be critical to continue to monitor seedling development and assess stands as plants start to emerge to determine how much seed was impacted by the cold, wet weather.last_img read more

  • 16 days ago​Ex-Man Utd keeper Bosnich: Mistake not replacing Lukaku

    first_img​Ex-Man Utd keeper Bosnich: Mistake not replacing Lukakuby Ansser Sadiq16 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich believes that not replacing Romelu Lukaku was a significant mistake.The Red Devils sold Lukaku to Inter Milan for a sizeable fee in the summer.They also allowed winger Alexis Sanchez to leave to the Italian club on loan.But no attacking players were signed in the summer, apart from Championship winger Daniel James from Swansea. And Bosnich believes that was a mistake.”Let’s be really frank, the recruitment has been poor over the past three or four years,” Bosnich told Omnisport.”Regardless of what the personal situation was, it was a mistake to let Lukaku go without having a ready-made replacement to come in. Especially at that stage of the season.”They didn’t [sign a replacement for Lukaku] and now Martial, Rashford and all of them have to find their spirit, find their soul and fight back.”There’s no use just sort of turning up at training, doing your job, going to the game, hiding, hoping that you don’t get any criticism and picking up your wages. That doesn’t work at a club like Manchester United.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

  • Danica Patrick Gives Americans A Taste Of Their Future With Hidden Camera

    first_imgFor the majority of Americans, going to the dentist is no laughing matter – in fact, an estimated 150 million American adults avoided a dental visit altogether last year. The reason? Anxiety about cost, pain and the extent of dental work they may need.Danica Patrick Gets Busy In The Food TruckSo to raise awareness about the long-term consequences of delaying dental care, Aspen Dental tapped their partner, NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, to give Americans “A Taste of the Future” in a humorous new hidden camera video.“A Taste of the Future” features Danica Patrick behind the grill of a food truck, going undercover to serve up classic food truck fare like fish tacos, burgers and pulled pork sandwiches. But before handing unsuspecting customers their lunch, Danica does something completely unexpected: She drops their food into a blender, serving it up in smoothie form. Customer reactions ran the gamut from confusion to disgust and were captured on hidden cameras for an arresting look at the potential future consequences of avoiding the dentist.“Delaying dental visits for years is similar to what happens when you don’t keep up maintenance on your car and then expect it to perform the way it should. You end up having higher costs to repair damage that could have been prevented with proper, regular maintenance,” said Patrick. “I love the approach that Aspen Dental took with this video – it’s a fun and creative way to deliver what is actually a really serious health message about the importance of oral health to overall health, and I was proud to be a part of it.”Research shows that for many Americans, dental care has become discretionary, a “nice to do” rather than a “must have.” Case in point: a recent survey of more than 1,000 adults conducted by ORC International and commissioned by Aspen Dental Management, Inc. found that nearly two in five American adults (39 percent) say they have limited or will delay dental care due to their financial situation, a number that has increased by nearly eight percent in the past two years. And they’re making the decision despite knowing the long-term financial implications — 80 percent are aware that postponing or delaying routine visits will cost them more money in the long run. The survey also found that nearly one in five consumers would fix problems with their car ahead of addressing pain in their mouth.“We know that dentistry is a category that’s filled with fear and anxiety,” said Mark Censoprano, chief marketing officer at Aspen Dental Management, Inc. “This is the first time that we’ve launched a campaign that relies heavily on digital and social media to get the word out, and we believe that this humorous approach will ignite a conversation and generate buzz about what is an often overlooked healthcare issue – oral health.”The full “A Taste of the Future” video, directed by Hollywood industry veteran Jeff Tremaine, who is widely known for his hidden camera prank television shows like Jackass and feature films such as Bad Grandpa, can be viewed here: www.ATasteoftheFuture.com.This is the latest effort from Aspen Dental to shine a light on the often overlooked dental health care landscape. Last year, Aspen Dental launched the Healthy Mouth Movement to deliver free dental care and oral health education to people in need across the United States. This year, the Healthy Mouth Movement will provide much needed dental care and oral health education to our nation’s veterans, free of charge. As one of the largest networks of dental care providers in the United States, Aspen Dental is stepping in to help raise dental health awareness and to help keep Americans’ mouths on track.For more information, visit www.ATasteoftheFuture.com.last_img read more
