SA, Czech Republic strengthen ties

first_img27 September 2012 South Africa and the Czech Republic have re-committed themselves to enhancing trade and economic relations despite the current financial economic crisis negatively affecting many countries around the world. The two countries – represented by Deputy Trade and Industry Minister Elizabeth Thabethe and her counterpart, Pavel Šolcl – signed a declaration to strengthen cooperation between South Africa and the Czech Republic. The two countries made the commitment at the end of the second session of the Czech Republic-South Africa Joint Committee for Economic Cooperation in Prague on Tuesday. “We shared the view that at the time, when the current financial and economic crisis negatively affects many countries, concerted international efforts are needed to create a more conducive environment for economic and business cooperation,” Thabethe said. “The two sides shared the view that solutions should also be sought in the promotion of multilateral and inter-regional trade.” Commitment to promoting cooperation Both countries reiterated the role of the Joint Committee and committed to promoting cooperation between business enterprises and overseeing development of bilateral economic cooperation in various fields. The importance of the strategic partnership between the European Union (EU) and South Africa was also addressed. The meeting noted that opportunities and investment between the EU and southern African region – including a comprehensive and balanced Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) between the EU and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) – were supported. “Following the Joint Communique, adopted at the occasion of the fifth EU-South Africa Summit held in Brussels on 18 September 2012, we hope that pending issues in the negotiations can be resolved and the EPA could be finalised as soon as possible,” she said. Both countries agreed to exert efforts to enhance the performance of bilateral trade on a mutually beneficial basis and to encourage the private sectors of South Africa and the Czech Republic to participate in efforts to boost trade. “In an effort to diversify bilateral trade, we have proposed to the Czech side to further develop bilateral trade in other potential products, such as machinery, filtering or purifying machinery, boilers, electrical equipment, textiles, automotive and automotive components, furniture, plates, sheet, strip and foil, nickel alloy, wines and fruit juices and processed food,” Thabethe said. “The Czech side informed us that South Africa was included in a targeted group covering so-called ‘countries of interest’ in the 2012-2020 Export Strategy of the Czech Republic, approved by the Czech Government.” “This new export strategy was the main instrument for diversifying and increasing Czech foreign trade and promoting mutual trade, investment and other economic activities with countries included,” she said.

Brand South Africa joins call to oppose gender based-violence

first_imgJohannesburg, Thursday 09 August 2018 –  Today, South Africa commemorates the 1956 Women’s March under the theme “100 Years of Albertina Sisulu, Woman of Fortitude: Women United in Moving South Africa Forward” – in celebration of Women’s Day.This  year’s Women’s Month  was ushered in by thousands of  gender activists, members of the LGBTIQ+ community and women across the country, who took to the streets on  August 1st, in a march to raise awareness against gender-based violence under the banner #TheTotalShutDown.This  Women’s Day  takes place against a backdrop of a rising spate of violence and abuse against women.  Despite progressive laws and policies designed to address these unacceptable levels of gender-based violence – it has not yet translated into action on the ground. Government has called on all sectors of society to oppose any form of violence committed against women and children, and immediately report all cases to the police, in order to bring perpetrators to justice.Brand South Africa’s Chief Marketing Officer, Mrs Linda Magapatona-Sangaret said: “Violence against women is a shameful reality throughout the South African society. It is rooted in gender inequalities, and it still far too often goes unnoticed and unchallenged.“The fight for the removal of violence against women in our society is a fight that each and every one of us must take part in. It is our duty to stand up for women by raising awareness to this injustice. We call on South Africans to be brave – stand up, and speak out against gender based violence.”According to United Nations Women – despite some progress, the numbers remain startling and the stories painful: more than one in three women worldwide have experienced physical violence; one in 10 girls have experienced forced intercourse or other sexual acts; and while at least 140 countries criminalize domestic violence, these laws are often not enforced.It is also estimated that 35 per cent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner at some point in their lives. However, some national studies show that up to 70 per cent of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner in their lifetimeIn South Africa – it has been reported that femicide is on the rise, with Statistics South Africa reporting that the murder rate for women increased drastically by 117% between 2015 and 2016/17.According to Stats SA’s Crime against Women in South Africa report, released in June this year, the number of women who experienced sexual offences also jumped from 31 665 in 2015/16 to 70 813 in 2016/17, which is an increase of 53%. These are extreme increases in less than 2 years.“According to the Bill of Rights, as enshrined in the South African Constitution, every citizen has the inalienable right to life, equality, human dignity and privacy. And yet, gender-based violence persists in our society. Through our collective efforts we can create greater awareness; reduce the number of sexual offences and attacks on women and children,” added Magapatona-Sangaret.So extensive is the scale of the epidemic of violence in South Africa, that in 2014, KPMG’sToo costly to ignore: the economic impact of gender-based violence in SA – estimated that it costs the country over R28 billion per annum, amounting to 1% of the GDP.“This year, as we commemorate the 100 Years of struggle icon Mama Albertina Sisulu, and the many women leaders of her generation, who sacrificed their lives in the struggle for freedom, let us be reminded that the right to live free from violence is a basic human right. We can and must do more to prevent violence against women, support survivors of abuse and bring perpetrators to justice,” says Magapatona-Sangaret.To support victims of gender-based violence and those affected to seek help by reporting any form of violence to the toll-free number 0800 428 428.For more information or to set up interviews, please contact: Tsabeng NthiteTel: +27 11 712 5061Mobile: +27 (0) 76 371 6810Email:[email protected] www.brandsouthafrica.comlast_img read more

Blog Review: Energy Insights by Paul Scheckel

first_imgCuba’s energy programs“Out of economic and practical necessity, Cuba reduced its energy consumption by half over a period of four years. They have now become global leaders in practical, innovative approaches to energy efficiency, renewable energy, and community energy solutions — on a very tight budget. Cuba also looked to increase international cooperation. They now export technical expertise in health care, and have their own solar electric panel assembly facility.“I was impressed by the small hydroelectric power station that used 30-year old Russian technology to provide power for 57 households. The same size system might provide enough power for four average American homes. Each family takes pride in some level of ‘ownership’ of the station and understands the limitations of a finite resource. If one family is being an energy hog, the whole neighborhood feels it. The local school takes power-priority and has a solar power system as a backup.” Paul Scheckel’s career as an energy efficiency specialist began in 1988 when he spent $350 on a 50-watt solar electric panel and turned the bedroom of his rental house into an off-grid zone. A year later he began working for the company he’d purchased the solar panel from, and two years after that started an electric-car company with two friends.By 1993, with the Vermont Electric Car Company now in the rearview mirror, Scheckel was working as an energy auditor. He bought a piece of land at the “end of a VT town road” and began building a house. Because the property was so far away from utility power, his only option was to make his house off-grid. He lived in a tent while he built the house.In the intervening 20 years or so, Scheckel’s property has become a homestead powered largely by renewable energy. The 50-watt panel he once used for lighting and to run a coffee grinder has blossomed into a 2-kW photovoltaic array, augmented by a 1-kW wind generator. A diesel-powered generator keeps the family going when wind and solar aren’t enough.Scheckel is the author of The Home Energy Diet (2005, New Society Publishers), writes a column for the local paper, The Times Argus/Rutland Herald, and has appeared on Ask This Old House. In his consulting work, he focuses on ultra-low energy designs and retrofits.His blog, Energy Insights by Paul Scheckel, borrows heavily from his newspaper columns to explore a variety of topics. You can also visit his website .Scheckel is an occasional blogger. There have been only three posts this year, but you’ll find some interesting content that probably isn’t covered elsewhere, such as details about Cuba’s renewable-energy effort (Cuba? Who knew?), and why you get sleepy after a big meal at Grandma’s house.Here are some excerpts: The problem with big holiday meals“During our family thanksgiving gathering, I got out my CO2 meter to test the air while dinner cooked in the gas oven. The CO2 level in the house soon shot up to over .15%, so we turned on the exhaust fan. It helped a little, but not much. The CO2 level was closing in on .2% and yawns were exchanged by all. Two windows were opened to allow cross ventilation, and within minutes the CO2 levels dropped. I realize now that all those holiday meals at Grandma’s house were accompanied by an unknown poison that put us all to sleep. All we could really do in that environment was watch TV because we were all lethargic from poor indoor air quality.” On the value of energy efficiency“Efficiency is always faster, cheaper, and easier than building a new power plant. Unlike generation – be it coal, nuclear, wind, or anything else – it’s really hard to find any negative impacts of efficiency improvements to argue about.” On making tough energy choices“My friend’s annual CO2 footprint is 13.4 tons for the family’s direct energy purchases. Their indirect footprint includes commercial and industrial aspects of their lives such as the products they purchase and the food they eat, all of which require energy to produce and transport. Average total CO2 footprint for an American family is about 20 tons. Some climate scientists indicate that to maintain a non-threatening level of atmospheric CO2, each of the nearly 7 billion inhabitants of earth would have a budget of about 4 tons of CO2. If you had a limited carbon budget, how would you spend it?” No simple fix for over-consumption“A few weeks ago I was interviewed on the ‘Green, Better, Best’ radio show. I was asked in advance to provide a ‘top ten’ list of energy saving tips for the home. I’ve been asked this many times before, and I always feel like I’m being asked to discover the ‘easy’ button. When it comes to energy generation and efficiency, there are no silver bullets that will take down the beast, but with good planning we can achieve success using ‘silver buckshot.’ ” On the irony of bio-fuels“Aside from the natural gas-derived nitrogen required to fertilize the plants that are the feedstock for biofuels, it takes lots of power to run a biofuel processing plant. Where are these processing plants? In the Midwest – where the corn and soybeans are. What’s the cheapest, most abundant energy source in the Midwest? Coal. I’m all for biofuels, but we need to use them efficiently so that we aren’t simply trading peak oil for peak soil.”last_img read more

How best to avoid a hiding with a team he clearly thinks isn’t up to the job

first_img Pinterest The Fiver FAR AND AWAYThe Fiver would give several pennies for the thoughts of José Mourinho as he sits in the suite he has called home for the past two-and-a-half years at the Lowry Hotel. With the thrill of frightening staff by dressing as a zombie using his shower curtain, snaffling complimentary biscuits and tungsten-tipped screws long gone and being able to take apart and reassemble his Corby Trouser Press quicker than a blindfolded soldier field-stripping an AK47 assault rifle, the Manchester United manager has plenty of time to dwell on the vicissitudes of life, not least how best to avoid a hiding against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday with a team he clearly thinks isn’t up to the job.“Far,” was his abrupt answer, upon being asked on Friday how far Manchester United are away from being the team he wants to play in his image. Asked to elaborate, he could scarcely have been more co-operative: “Far,” he reiterated. He wasn’t done yet, though. Oh no, he’d come prepared with an analogy. Embarking on a lengthy monologue, José explained how football teams are like houses. “A house is not just about buying new furniture, you have to do work in the house and when the house is ready, then you buy the furniture, you spend money on the best possible furniture, and then you are ready to live in an amazing house,” he said, to widespread looks of confusion around the press room. Pinterest Twitter The possibly incorrect consensus seems to be that José was alluding to Liverpool’s massive spending during the summer, although he may just have spent too long in that hotel and be pining for an occasional table, chaise longue and mahogany wardrobe to call his own. Either way, we’re assuming it was a dig at his own chief suit Ed Woodward, who last summer refused to buy him the reinforced stainless steel back door and home alarm system he so craved and instead left him to put Phil Jones on sentry duty, only for the hapless defender to usher the intruders in, make them a pot of tea and then show them where all the valuables are kept.Meanwhile at Anfield, Jürgen Klopp has problems of his own and is kneeling on the carpet, screwdriver in hand and swearing loudly over assorted bits of a flatpack Nathaniel Clyne, now that Joe Gomez, Joël Matip and Trent Alexander-Arnold are all in the carpenter’s workshop in various states of disrepair. “Clyney was unfortunately injured in the last two weeks, nothing serious but serious enough that he couldn’t train,” said Klopp. “Luckily he has been back in full training for the last four days. Is he ready for 90 minutes? I don’t know.” With all available evidence of their performance against Valencia suggesting United will only play for 10, we think he should be OK.QUOTE OF THE DAY“At my first press conference I was told: ‘You know nothing about the players, nothing about women’s football’ and I just thought it was incredibly disrespectful” – Phil Neville gets his chat on with Sachin Nakrani and reflects on a year in charge of England Women and how he plans to lead them to World Cup glory.SUPPORT THE GUARDIANProducing the Guardian’s thoughtful, in-depth journalism [the stuff not normally found in this email, obviously – Fiver Ed] is expensive, but supporting us isn’t.

Playboy centrefold and Worlds Sexiest DJ jailed for helping smuggle boyfriend through

first_img(Colleen Shannon/Facebook)By Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsA former Playboy centrefold and “World’s Sexiest DJ” was sentenced to four months in jail this week for helping smuggle her Canadian boyfriend and convicted cocaine trafficker through Akwesasne and into the U.S.Colleen Shannon, who lives in Los Angeles, was sentenced Tuesday and will begin serving her prison term on Dec. 3, according to court documents filed U.S. federal court.Shannon’s boyfriend Robert Skojo is currently under investigation by the RCMP and U.S. authorities for smuggling cocaine from the U.S. into Canada, according to court documents. Skojo was initially denied entry into the U.S. in 2003 as a result of several criminal convictions in Ontario, including for living on the avails of prostitution and trafficking cocaine.“This case is not, in fact, a purely innocuous story of a boyfriend and girlfriend who were divided by an international boundary,” wrote U.S. Attorney Richard Hartunian, in his sentencing submission to the court. “It is the story of a convicted narcotics trafficker whose girlfriend engaged in complex machinations to facilitate his entry into and transport within the United States, including by lying to border patrol agents and driving the defendant’s vehicle over the border while he entered unlawfully.”The two began dating in June 2011 after Skojo hired Shannon to DJ a party he was hosting, according to court documents. Their love affair evolved over the next few months as Shannon regularly travelled to Toronto to visit Skojo. The two talked about living together, but Skojo’s criminal record kept him from moving to Los Angeles. Then, in September 2011, Skojo was referred by a friend to someone who could help him get into the U.S. illegally, but he initially balked at the idea.Then, on July 2012, Skojo decided to make his move and he planned to enter the U.S. through Akwesasne, a Mohawk community which straddles the Canada-U.S. border and sits about 120 kilometres west of Montreal.According to court documents, Shannon flew to Toronto in August of that year to help Skojo get through the Canada-U.S. border. On Aug. 15, Skojo packed two suitcases and drove his 2005 Bentley with Shannon to meet a contact named “Jerry” at a Toronto gas station.  They followed Jerry to Cornwall, Ont., crossed the bridge to Cornwall Island and met with an unnamed person there to arrange for the crossing.Shannon left Skojo on the island then drove through U.S. customs. Skojo was then ferried across the St. Lawrence River from the island to the U.S. shore, which is still within Akwesasne. They planned to meet at the Great View Motel, just outside Akwesasne.Shannon, however, ran into problems while answering questions from U.S. customs and was put into secondary inspection where she was found to be carrying $9,800 in cash, most of it in $100 bills. Shannon claimed the money came from her work as a DJ. She also told border agents she was a model. The search also turned up Skojo’s luggage.The border agents eventually let her go, but contacted agents with Homeland Security Investigations. She was followed to the Great View Motel where she checked in and awaited for Skojo who slipped into the hotel without being detected by the agent who had the place under surveillance.The two spent the night at the hotel and left in the morning driving Skojo’s Bentley. They were soon stopped by border agents and arrested. During questioning Skojo admitted he was smuggled across the border through Akwesasne.Skojo was sentenced to six months in federal prison last December and fined $1,000.He is “currently the target of a significant narcotics trafficking investigation,” according to Sgt. Frank Gougeon, with the RCMP’s serious and organized crime section, court documents show.Shannon agreed to deal and pleaded guilty to transporting an alien through the U.S.She is scheduled to spin the Playboy Mansion’s Halloween party.She was the centerfold for Playboy’s 50th anniversary edition in [email protected]@JorgeBarreralast_img read more
