Industrial parks must focus on overcoming business constraints, says DTIC

To drive industrialisation in South Africa and promote economic growth, Department of Trade, Industry and Competition industrial cluster development director Gavin Adams says an industrial park’s key objective must be a focus on overcoming the constraints of doing business within a constrained economy. He adds that shifts in the global value chain, as well as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, create a focus on asset-lite, intangible forms of production, while creating risks for traditional physical production, especially within an industrial park.

The media’s Palestine problem

November 29, 2019

ABC’s November 25 Q&A program discussed the push by the United States to recognise illegal Israeli settlements in Palestine. Given this, you would have expected the panel to include a Palestinian.

Instead, Q&A chose to ignore Palestinian voices and stacked the panel with right wingers and pro-Israeli figures. This is like having a panel on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and not including a single First Nations person.

On Twitter, Crikey journalist Jennine Khalik asked: “Do media organisations in Australia have a Palestinian problem?”

She noted: “There are approx. 15,000 Palestinians in Australia — many who are academics across geopolitics in Palestine/Israel and advocates for justice and peace in Palestine, and they couldn’t find one for tonight?”

It was a deliberate decision to exclude any Palestinian point of view, but such decisions are not new. They follow a pattern of misrepresenting and ignoring Palestinian stories in the corporate media.

In a March 17 Al Jazeera article, three journalists were asked about the media’s coverage of Palestine.

A former foreign correspondent for the British Independent said: “Everyone is terrified of putting a foot wrong and being accused of being anti-Semitic that they daren't even ask the necessary questions.”

"Because newspapers have been got at and persuaded and pressurised by the pro-Israel lobby, the upshot over time is that the reader hasn't got a clue what this place [Palestine] is."

Former Guardian freelance journalist David Cronin said that after he reported on Israeli atrocities against Palestinians, he was told by an editor that they would prefer he not report on Gaza.

Al Jazeera also interviewed former Israeli ambassador to South Africa Ilan Baruch, who told them: "Israel was brilliantly successful in offering a narrative to the Western hemisphere that was embraced with little or no objective judgement."

Baruch, who resigned in 2011 because he felt he could no longer represent the Israeli government's policies, said Israel has dominated the Western media narrative during the entire 70-year conflict.

In Australia, it is no different.

Even a news source many Australians look to as being more objective, such as the ABC, have a bad track record on Palestine.

The ABC seems to be particularly intimidated about reporting on Israeli atrocities. Its coverage of the issue has worsened over the years, particularly after former Coalition communications minister Richard Alston initiated an inquiry into the ABC over bias in its reporting of the 2003 Iraq invasion.

The situation is dire in Palestine. Most people would not know that Israel has enacted a total economic blockade on Gaza since 2007, denying people access to building materials, basic food and medicine. The lack of reporting on this and other issues in Palestine is inhumane.

This is as true for Palestine as it is for the lack of reporting on what other repressive regimes are doing — all of which makes it harder to build resistance to them.

That is why Green Left Weekly pays so much attention to covering these issues, not just in Palestine but in many countries and, of course, in Australia. But to continue doing so we need your help.

If you like our work, become a Green Left supporter today.

LIMECO The History & Background:

LIMECO was established in 1994, by LEON COERTZE, in Phoenix Industrial Park just North of Durban CBD. LIMECO were appointed agent for CAPE LIME one of Southern Africa, biggest Lime producing companies. With just a handful of clients it was soon realized that the need to grow was imminent.

1996 LIMECO relocated to the BKB Complex in Jacobs. This location offered sufficient warehouse-space with good access to arterial routes. The premises also boasted their own railway sidings with easy access. By transporting our products by rail we reduced our costs significantly and became more competitive.

1997 LIMECO expanded their product range in the building sector. This allowed LIMECO to expand their customer base and also broaden their horizons even further. LIMECO were awarded the agency for one of the biggest tile adhesive manufacturers in South Africa, Ezee Tile. LIMECO was well on track and rapidly becoming a household name in the market.

1998 LIMECO secured a contract with Specialty Minerals SA for the supply of Imported Lime which led to the establishment of their sister company Bulkco. Through dedication and ongoing commitment LIMECO were also able to secure contracts with Umgeni Water, Isegen SA, Huntsmen Tioxide and eThekwini Municipality, to name but a few. With LIMECO on track in KwaZulu-Natal it was decided to broaden the horizon further and in the year 2000 established another company, Limeco Minerals, Apex, Benoni.

Since then all three companies showed constant growth. After years of leasing, it was time for LIMECO head office in Durban to acquire its own premises.

August 2008 LIMECO opened for business at their newly constructed premises in Amanzimtoti. The warehouse features an indoor loading facility which can handle both break bulk as well as containerized cargo all-year-round no matter the weather. The warehouse has a storage capacity of around 7000 tons.

After nearly two decades of successfully supplying lime to Umgeni Water, LIMECO received a certificate from Umgeni Water in recognition of outstanding performance and being a strategic partner.

2013 LIMECO established Limeco Western Cape and there are no signs of slowing down.

2015 LIMECO became the agent for Lhoist in South Africa, the biggest lime producer in the world with facilities in more than 100 countries. Which secured business with Impala Platinum and Enviroserv.

Due to the tremendous growth in sales achieved since becoming the agents for PB lime in KZN, LIMECO were appointed agents for the Eastern Cape region in 2016.

2017 LIMECO upgraded their loading facilities in order to keep up with the growing demand. In the same year CAPE LIME was bought over by AFRIMAT.  LIMECO still remain the agent for CAPE LIME / AFRIMAT products. 

2018 LIMECO really got stretched to their limits. With high-growth and demand, it was time to expand the warehouse, due for completion 2019

A sea rescue operation system based on LoRa

A sea rescue operation system based on LoRa Dehda, PS; Jayram, S; Abu Mahfouz, Adnan MI; Ouahada, K Current Personal Flotation Devices (PFD), such as life jackets, are equipped with reflective tape and water- activated LED units. As technology advances, it is imperative that safety equipment is enhanced as well This motivates the use of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) technology, such as LoRa (Long Range), to allow for easier detection of individuals when disaster strikes at sea. The methodology involves developing a transmitter device, to be placed in a life jacket and a receiver device ,to be placed in a sea rescue helicopter. MultiTech 's range of LoRa enabled modules were used This includes the LoRa mCard, MultiTech MultiConnect Conduit, LoRa mDot and the MultiTech micro developer kit Sensors placed in the life jacket were that of a pulse sensor, water sensor and GPS sensor. It was found that within a 4 km range, the transmitter transmitted data to the receiver within 1.9 ms. The GPS sensor provided the latitude and longitude of the user with an error margin of 7 meters. The pulse sensor produced a BPM value which was 98% accurate compared to the wrist method test of finding ones BPM. Therefore, in this paper, the authors designed and implemented a sea rescue system which depicted how LoRa can be utilized in such an application and shows how it can be used to transfer data from a device attached to a PFD to a receiver placed in a sea rescue helicopter. Hence and so forth, the use of water sensors, GPS sensors and pulse sensors have been attached to a transmitter device found in a life jacket which then transfer live information to a receiver placed in a sea rescue helicopter. The overall aim of the system is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of current sea rescue operations.

Paris Agreement targets need to be 5 times stronger to actually work

Story 352403074

In almost exactly a year’s time, nearly 200 countries will have the chance to go back to the drawing board and make revisions to their Paris Agreement commitments. It sounds boring, but those voluntary commitments are pretty much the only global tool humanity currently has at its disposal to fight the looming climate crisis. What these countries decide to do when they get together in Glasgow next November to update their commitments will quite literally determine whether the planet devolves into a climate-wrecked hellscape or starts tracking a far more livable course.

A new U.N. report published on Tuesday, a week before many of those nations gather in Madrid for an annual climate change conference, shows exactly what the world needs to do to avoid catastrophic warming. Spoiler alert: it will not be easy.

The report says that nations need to make their emissions-reductions goals five times more ambitious in order to limit warming to 1.5 degrees C — the threshold scientists say is the danger line for global warming. Even if all of the countries involved in the Paris Agreement bring emissions down to the levels they initially pledged to meet, the world would still be on track for 3.2 degrees C of warming. That’s 5.76 degrees F, a scenario that would make the wildfires, hurricanes, heat waves, and droughts of 2019 look like child’s play.

The worse news is that many of the world’s biggest emitters aren’t even on track to meet their Paris accord pledges. Members of the G20, which includes 19 countries and the EU, produce 78 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Of those countries, only China, the EU, India, Mexico, Russia, and Turkey are on track to meet their nationally determined contributions to the Paris Agreement. Meanwhile, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Canada, the Republic of Korea, South Africa, and the United States of America — which is in the process of pulling out of the agreement — need to take stronger action to achieve the targets that they voluntarily set in 2016. (There’s conflicting data on whether the remaining G20 members are on or off track.)

All these countries need to revise their targets significantly in 2020 and then start actually meeting their targets to “close the emissions gap” and avoid a terrible warming scenario. Inger Andersen, the executive editor of the U.N. Environment Programme and the lead author of the report, gives humanity two options: “set in motion the radical transformations we need now, or face the consequences of a planet radically altered by climate change.” Those radical transformations she’s talking about involve cutting emissions 7.6 percent every year between 2020 and 2030 if we want to limit warming to 1.5 degrees, or 2.7 percent per year if we’re willing to resign ourselves to 2 degrees of warming.

It would be the understatement of the century to call these objectives daunting. Luckily, the report lays out exactly what each country in the G7 can do to help achieve those cuts. The United States, for one, can put a price on carbon, shore up fuel efficiency standards for new cars, and implement clean building standards so developers build more efficient buildings. It can also regulate its power plants better and work toward a carbon-free electricity sector. China and India can ban coal-fired power plants, invest in public transit, and work toward zero-emissions cars and buildings. The E.U. can stop investing in fossil fuel-powered infrastructure, cut the natural gas cord, phase out its coal-powered plants, ban combustion-engine vehicles, and retrofit existing buildings to make them cleaner.

Here’s the good news: several G20 members have said they aim to achieve net-zero emissions by mid-century. In the U.S., many presidential candidates are running on platforms that include that ambitious goal. Furthermore, the technology to accomplish the recommendations laid out in the report already exists. What nations need now is the political willpower to make it happen. “We have to learn from our procrastination,” Andersen writes. “We cannot afford to fail.”

 “On The Beach”
by Nevil Shute

“Nevil Shute’s 1959 novel “On the Beach” is set in what was then the near future (1963, approximately a year following World War III). The conflict has devastated the northern hemisphere, polluting the atmosphere with nuclear fallout and killing all animal life. While the nuclear bombs were confined to the northern hemisphere, global air currents are slowly carrying the fallout to the southern hemisphere. The only part of the planet still habitable is the far south of the globe, specifically Australia and New Zealand, South Africa, and the southern parts of South America.

From Australia, survivors detect a mysterious and incomprehensible Morse code radio signal originating from the United States. With hope that some life has remained in the contaminated regions, one of the last American nuclear submarines, the USS Scorpion, placed by its captain under Australian naval command, is ordered to sail north from its port of refuge in Melbourne (Australia’s southernmost major mainland city) to try to contact whoever is sending the signal. In preparation for this long journey the submarine first makes a shorter trip to some port cities in northern Australia including Cairns, Queensland and Darwin, Northern Territory, finding no survivors.

The Australian government makes arrangements to provide its citizens with free suicide pills and injections, so that they will be able to avoid prolonged suffering from radiation sickness. One of the novel’s poignant dilemmas is that of Australian naval officer Peter Holmes, who has a baby daughter and a naive and childish wife, Mary, who is in denial about the impending disaster. Because he has been assigned to travel north with the Americans, Peter must try to explain to Mary how to euthanize their baby and kill herself with the pill should he be killed on the ocean voyage.

The characters make their best efforts to enjoy what time and pleasures remain to them before dying from radiation poisoning, speaking of small pleasures and continuing their customary activities, allowing their awareness of the coming end to impinge on their minds only long enough to plan ahead for their final hours. The Holmeses plant a garden that they will never see; Moira takes classes in typing and shorthand; scientist John Osborne and others organize a dangerous motor race that results in the violent deaths of several participants. In the end, Captain Towers chooses not to remain with Moira but rather to lead his crew on a final mission to scuttle their submarine beyond the twelve-mile (22 km) limit, so that she will not rattle about, unsecured, in a foreign port, refusing to allow his coming demise to turn him aside from his duty and acting as a pillar of strength to his crew.

Typically for a Shute novel, the characters avoid the expression of intense emotions and do not mope or indulge in self-pity. They do not, for the most part, flee southward as refugees but rather accept their fate once the lethal radiation levels reach the latitudes at which they live. Finally, most of the Australians do opt for the government-promoted alternative of suicide when the symptoms of radiation-sickness appear.”

Best sports books of 2019


In a year of great sporting events, Emma John picks the standouts books – including a memoir on pigeon racing and a searing polemic on racism in football

Who knows how many books will be written about the extraordinary sporting year of 2019? Four English football clubs made European finals. Megan Rapinoe of the US and South Africa’s Siya Kolisi inspired their national football and rugby union teams to respective World Cup wins. The Cricket World Cup final was so nail-biting even its tiebreaker was tied.

But great sports books tend to be reflective not reactive and this year the titles that make the best reads are a surprisingly off-piste bunch. It might seem counter-intuitive, after 12 months of end-to-end excitement, to pick up a book on the art of pigeon racing, or a travelogue that meanders gently around Flanders trying to understand its peculiar passion for cycling over cobbles.

Review of the Clinical Evidences of Modulated Electro-Hyperthermia (mEHT) Method: An Update for the Practicing Oncologist

Attila M. Szasz1*†, Carrie Anne Minnaar2†, Gyongyver Szentmártoni1, Gyula P. Szigeti3 and Magdolna Dank1



Background: Modulated electro-hyperthermia (mEHT) is a variation of the conventional hyperthermia which selectively targets the malignant cell membranes in order to heat the malignant tissue and sensitize the tissue to oncology treatments. Although widely applied, the formulation of guidelines for the use thereof is still in progress for many tumors.

Aim: In this paper we review the literature on the effects of mEHT in cancer patients on local disease control and survival.

Methodology: Our review on data presents the collected experience with capacitive hyperthermia treatments with the EHY-2000+ device (OncoTherm Ltd., Germany). A literature search was conducted in Pubmed and articles were grouped and discussed according to: trial type, animal studies, in vitro studies, and reviews. Search results from Conference Abstracts; Trial Registries; Thesis and Dissertations and the Oncothermia Journal were included in the discussions.

Results: Modulated electro-hyperthermia is a safe form of hyperthermia which has shown to effectively sensitizes deep tumors, regardless of the thickness of the adipose layers. The technology has demonstrated equal benefits compared to other forms of hyperthermia for a variety of tumors. Given the effective heating ability to moderate temperatures, the improved tumor perfusion, and ability to increase drug absorption, mEHT is a safe and effective heating technology which can be easily applied to sensitize tumors which have demonstrated benefits with the addition of hyperthermia. Modulated electro-hyperthermia also appears to improve local control and survival rates and appears to induce an abscopal (systemic) response to ionizing radiation.

Conclusion: Based on clinical studies, the method mEHT is a feasible hyperthermia technology for oncological applications. Concomitant utilization of mEHT is supported by the preclinical and clinical data.

Protecting users from government-backed hacking and disinformation


Google's Threat Analysis Group (TAG) works to counter targeted and government-backed hacking against Google and our users. This is an area we have invested in deeply for over a decade. Our daily work involves detecting and defeating threats, and warning targeted users and customers about the world’s most sophisticated adversaries, spanning the full range of Google products including Gmail, Drive and YouTube.

In the past, we’ve posted on issues like phishing campaigns, vulnerabilities and disinformation. Going forward, we’ll share more technical details and data about the threats we detect and how we counter them to advance the broader digital security discussion.

TAG tracks more than 270 targeted or government-backed groups from more than 50 countries. These groups have many goals including intelligence collection, stealing intellectual property, targeting dissidents and activists, destructive cyber attacks, or spreading coordinated disinformation. We use the intelligence we gather to protect Google infrastructure as well as users targeted with malware or phishing.


We’ve had a long-standing policy to send users warnings if we detect that they are the subject of state-sponsored phishing attempts, and have posted periodically about these before. From July to September 2019, we sent more than 12,000 warnings to users in 149 countries that they were targeted by government-backed attackers. This is consistent (+/-10%) with the number of warnings sent in the same period of 2018 and 2017.

govt backed phishing targets in q3 2019.png

Distribution of government-backed phishing targets in Q3 (Jul-Sep 2019)

Over 90 percent of these users were targeted via “credential phishing emails” similar to the example below. These are usually attempts to obtain the target’s password or other account credentials to hijack their account. We encourage high-risk users—like journalists, human rights activists, and political campaigns—to enroll in our Advanced Protection Program (APP), which utilizes hardware security keys and provides the strongest protections available against phishing and account hijackings. APP is designed specifically for the highest-risk accounts.

In the simple phishing example below, an attacker has sent a phishing email with a security alert lure from “Goolge” suggesting the user secure their account. The user clicks the link, enters their password, and may also get asked for a security code if they have two-factor authentication enabled, allowing the attacker to access their account.

Threat detection

Last week at CyberwarCon, we presented analysis about previously undisclosed campaigns from a Russia-nexus threat group called “Sandworm” (also known as “Iridium”). It’s a useful example of the type of detailed threat detection work that TAG does. Although much of Sandworm’s activity targeting Ukraine and their attacks against the 2018 Winter Olympics have been covered publicly, some campaigns have not been reported. 

In December 2017, TAG discovered a series of campaigns from Sandworm attempting to deploy Android malware. The first campaign targeted users in South Korea, where Sandworm was modifying legitimate Android applications with malware. They then uploaded these modified apps to the Play Store using their own attacker-controlled developer accounts. During this campaign, Sandworm uploaded eight different apps to the Play Store, each with fewer than 10 total installs. 

malicious apps targeting users in south korea.png

Malicious apps targeting users in South Korea

We also identified an earlier September 2017 Android campaign from Sandworm where they used similar tactics and deployed a fake version of the email app on the Play Store. This application had approximately 1,000 total installs. We worked with our colleagues on the Google Play Protect Team to write detections for this malware family, and eliminate it.

In November 2018, we saw evidence that Sandworm shifted from using attacker-controlled accounts to try and upload malicious apps to compromising legitimate developers. Throughout November, Sandworm targeted software and mobile app developers in Ukraine via spear phishing emails with malicious attachments. In at least one case, they compromised an app developer with several published Play Store apps—one with more than 200,000 installs. 

After compromising the developer, Sandworm built a backdoor in one of the legitimate apps and attempted to publish it on the Play Store. They did this by adding their implant code into the application package, signing the package with the compromised developer’s key, and then uploading it to the Play Store. However, the Google Play Protect team caught the attempt at the time of upload. As a result, no users were infected and we were able to re-secure the developer’s account.


TAG is one part of Google and YouTube’s broader efforts to tackle coordinated influence operations that attempt to game our services. We share relevant threat information on these campaigns with law enforcement and other tech companies. Here are some examples that have been reported recently that TAG worked on:

  • TAG recently took action against Russia-affiliated influence operations targeting several nations in Africa. The operations use inauthentic news outlets to disseminate messages promoting Russian interests in Africa. We have observed the use of local accounts and people to contribute to the operation, a tactic likely intended to make the content appear more genuine. Targeted countries included the Central African Republic, Sudan, Madagascar, and South Africa, and languages used included English, French, and Arabic. Activity on Google services was limited, but we enforced across our products swiftly. We terminated the associated Google accounts and 15 YouTube channels, and we continue to monitor this space. This discovery was consistent with recent observations and actions announced by Facebook. 

  • Consistent with a recent Bellingcat report, TAG identified a campaign targeting the Indonesian provinces Papua and West Papua with messaging in opposition to the Free Papua Movement. Google terminated one advertising account and 28 YouTube channels.


TAG works closely with other technology companies—including platforms and specialized security firms—to share intelligence and best practices. We also share threat information with law enforcement. And of course there are multiple teams at Google at work on these issues with whom we coordinate. 

Going forward, our goal is to give more updates on the attacks that TAG detects and stops. Our hope is that shining more light on these actors will be helpful to the security community, deter future attacks, and lead to better awareness and protections among high-risk targets.


Jeffrey Epstein asked victim for nude pics a month before sex-trafficking arrest: Lawsuit

Jeffrey Epstein, the high-profile sex-trafficking suspect who died in a Manhattan jail, asked for nude photos from one of his victims a month before he was arrested, according to a lawsuit filed this week. The claim against the disgraced financier's $577 million estate says Juliette Bryant initially met Epstein in 2002, when she was a 20-year-old aspiring model living in South Africa. She says she went to a restaurant with Epstein, after being introduced by a model turned journalist, and then attended a speech in Cape Town he gave the following day, according to the suit. Epstein asked Bryant to...

OutRight Now: Ensuring LGBTI inclusion in Beijing+25

Ensuring LGBTI inclusion in Beijing+25 View this email in your browser


Global reach of so-called conversion therapy


Hi Friend,

Almost 25 years ago, in 1995, the UN held its Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, which resulted in Member States adopting the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action calling for gender equality and realization of human rights of women across the globe.

Driven by OutRight and a small group of partner activists, the Beijing Conference became the first UN space at which lesbians were truly visible. South African activist Bev Ditsie became the first out lesbian to address the UN on behalf of OutRight (then IGLHRC). Although “sexual orientation” was left out of the declaration, lesbian issues formed part of the discussions, inclusive language was used, and the visibility itself established crucial ground for subsequent advocacy.

The LGBTIQ movement and gender equality movement are naturally intertwined. The norms and stereotypes that uphold gender inequalities also cause discrimination, persecution and stigma against LGBTIQ people. Sexism, homophobia and transphobia are rooted in the same prejudices which cause gender inequality; namely that the sex we are assigned dictates how we are supposed to look, behave and live, and who we are supposed to love. Gender based violence affects people across the LGBTIQ spectrum, precisely because we don't fit those arbitrarily assigned gender norms.

In 2020 a quarter of a century will have passed since the Beijing declaration. These movements work closely together, and we are a world away from the context we faced in 1995, but we also face a strong backlash, even from some organizations and individuals who identify as feminist.

As such, 2020 is not only a moment for reflection on the achievements toward gender equality so far, it is also a crucial moment for re-establishing that gender inequalities affect everyone, and that gender equality efforts have to be inclusive of all women and trans people in order to be successful.

The UN is marking the anniversary of the Beijing Conference and Declaration with a number of events which provide an avenue for LGBTIQ inclusion. But unlike 25 years ago, we in civil society should not be the only ones driving LBT visibility and inclusion. Governments have a responsibility to “leave no one behind” and to ensure that the conference and its outputs are truly inclusive of all.

OutRight is working hard to ensure this. Our colleagues have already participated in a number of regional preparatory meetings held in Addis Ababa, Bangkok and Geneva.

Moreover, we have just opened applications for Beijing +25 Fellows, which will allow 8 LBTIQ Human Rights Defenders from the Global South and East, with the guidance and support of our UN Program, to engage systematically in the many processes of the Beijing+25 anniversary, and ensure genuine inclusion of LGBTIQ issues at all levels.

I hope to see many of you at OutSummit in New York City next month where, among many other topics, you will also be able to find out more about our UN program and Beijing +25 plans. If you haven't already, register here.

With best wishes,

Jessica Stern
Executive Director, OutRight Action International

20.08-Carat Blue Diamond From Celebrated Cullinan Mine Sells for $14.9 Million

The exceptional 20.08-carat blue diamond recovered in September from the celebrated Cullinan Mine in South Africa was sold last week for $14.9 million, or $742,000 per carat. Mine owner Petra Diamonds Ltd. described the buyer as "a leading diamond company that wishes to remain anonymous," but that cloak of secrecy certainly will be lifted once the rough gem is transformed into a polished diamond.

A three-dimensional mapping of the rough stone will likely be conducted to determine the size and shape of the diamond that it will yield. We're guessing that it will weigh about 8 carats and be worth $25 million or more. Here's why...

The Blue Moon of Josephine, which was also sourced at the Cullinan Mine, started out as a 29-carat rough blue diamond and was polished into a 12-carat cushion-cut diamond of the highest quality. It rated "fancy vivid" blue in color and "internally flawless" in clarity. It was eventually sold at a Sotheby's auction for $48.5 million, or more than $4 million per carat. The rough diamond that became The Blue Moon of Josephine lost about 59% of it mass during the cutting process. If the same holds true for Petra's 20-carat blue diamond, the result would be an 8-plus-carat gem.

"We are very pleased with this result, which is in line with our expectations and confirms the resilience in the value of very high-quality blue diamonds, undoubtedly one of nature's rarest treasures," said Richard Duffy, Chief Executive of Petra. "We look forward to following this exceptional stone's journey to its polished form."

Analysts had predicted correctly in September that Petra's 20-carat blue diamond would sell in the range of $10 million to $15 million.

Located at the foothills of the Magaliesberg mountain range, 37 kilometers northeast of Pretoria in South Africa, the Cullinan Mine is arguably the world's most heralded diamond mine.

The 117-year-old Cullinan Mine (originally known as the Premier Mine) is credited with producing seven of the world’s largest 50 rough diamonds based on carat weight. These include the Cullinan Heritage (#27, 507 carats, 2009), Centenary (#23, 599 carats, 1986), The Golden Jubilee (#11, 755 carats, 1985) and the granddaddy of them all — the 3,106-carat Cullinan Diamond (#1).

Discovered in 1905, the Cullinan Diamond was segmented into nine major finished stones, each of which was given the name Cullinan and a Roman numeral. Two of the gems are part of the the British Crown Jewels — the Great Star of Africa (Cullinan I) at 530.4 carats and the Second Star of Africa (Cullinan II) at 317.4 carats.

Not only is the Cullinan Mine still producing world-class white diamonds, it is also the world's most important source of blue diamonds.

Diamonds get their natural blue color from small amounts of the chemical element boron trapped in the crystal carbon structure during its formation.

This Gigantic, New Confection Features 3,500 Carats of Faceted Bling

Perfectly timed to coincide with the start of the "engagement season," the Bazooka candy company has introduced a gigantic version of its popular Ring Pop, the colorful confection that looks like a faceted gemstone. While the conventional Ring Pop weighs 40 grams and is equivalent to a 200-carat gemstone, the new Giant Ring Pop weighs 700 grams, or 3,500 carats.

To put this into jewelry-industry perspective, the Giant Ring Pop outweighs the Cullinan Diamond, which is the largest gem-quality rough diamond ever found. That stone was unearthed in South Africa in 1905 and tipped the scales at 3,106 carats.

The novelty lollipop, which comes with a bright red "gemstone" mounted on a "gold" plastic ring, sells for $9.98 at and is also available at Party City, Cracker Barrel, IT'SUGAR and Dylan's Candy Bar.

At first glance, the ring's 60 calories per serving seems reasonable. However, a closer look at the nutrition label reveals the sugary fact that the Giant Ring Pop packs 47 servings.

"We are beyond excited to introduce Giant Ring Pop, as this will be a huge surprise for our fans this holiday season," said Allison McCants, Senior Customer Marketing Manager for Bazooka Candy Brands. "Whether you grew up with memories of the iconic brand or looking for the ultimate holiday gift for that special someone, Giant Ring Pop is the perfect way to go BIG!"

Giant Ring Pop is sold in a single 24.7 oz package and is available in Sweet Strawberry flavor. Bazooka believes the enormous lollipop ring is the perfect prop for a fun social media moment.

The foodies at got up close and personal with the new Giant Ring Pop and reported that "it was just as over-the-top as one would think."

They wrote that the pop "smelled and tasted super nostalgic—the sticky-sweetness of the berry stuck with us for hours after we'd finished tasting it... and we were honestly not mad."

Targeting Environmental Activists With Counterterrorism Measures is an Abuse of the Law

Protecting the endangered Asiatic cheetah. Tweeting a satirical poem. Attending a climate conference. Campaigning against a power plant. These actions hardly conjure images of suicide bombers or coup plotters. Yet, they have been labelled “eco-terrorism,” “extremism,” or “threats to national security” by governments and businesses that seek to block the work of environmental activists.

As young people around the world gather for a global climate strike on Friday, and as the 25th Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25) begins in Madrid on Monday, conference delegates would do well to consider that one important way to protect the environment is to protect environmental defenders.

To be sure, environmentalists face dangers beyond being labelled security threats. From the Amazon rainforest to South African mining communities, activists defending ecosystems and ancestral lands are threatened, attacked and even killed with near-total impunity. But the unjust labelling of environmentalists as dangerous criminals or threats to national security is often more insidious, as it is generally carried out under the aegis of the law.

Authorities have an obligation to prosecute criminal acts. But typically, environmental defenders peacefully exercise their rights to freedom of speech, association, and assembly. Only in exceptional cases would their acts meet a generally-accepted definition of terrorism. And when environmentalists engage in civil disobedience, they do not usually aim to undermine the rule of law. Yet, we should consider the following:

  • In Poland, days before hosting the COP24 in December 2018, authorities issued a terrorism alert and denied entry to at least 13 foreign climate activists registered to attend, calling them security threats. Poland also empowered the police to collect data about conference participants without judicial oversight or participants’ knowledge.
  • In France, days before hosting the COP21 in November 2015, authorities placed at least 24 climate activists under house arrest using emergency counterterrorism measures enacted after the deadly Paris attacks that month. The activists were accused of flouting a ban on COP21 protests.
  • In Iran, eight members of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation, imprisoned since early 2018, were just handed prison terms of up to 10 years for allegedly spying for the US. During a flawed trial, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards accused them of using their work protecting the endangered Asiatic cheetah as a cover. The group’s founder, also arrested in 2018, died in custody under suspicious circumstances.
  • In Kenya, authorities have unjustly accused environmental activists opposing a mega-infrastructure project of ties to the extremist armed group al-Shabab and threatened, beat, and arbitrarily detained them. In July, a court suspended the project’s coal-fired power plant. Activists contend the development will still destroy forests, kill fish, and displace communities.
  • In the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte in 2018 placed 600 civil society activists, including environmentalists, on a list of alleged members of the country’s communist party and its armed wing, which he declared to be a terrorist organisation. Until a court intervened, the list included Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, an indigenous Filipina who is the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples and has protested Philippines mining projects.
  • In Ecuador, eight years passed before environmental activist José “Pepe” Acacho was cleared of “terrorism” charges for opposing mining and oil exploration in the Amazon.
  • In the US in 2018, the then-interior secretary blamed wildfires on “environmental terrorist groups” that opposed logging. In 2017, a pipeline operator sued Greenpeace and other environmental groups for a “rogue eco-terrorist” campaign against an oil pipeline. A court dismissed the lawsuit in February. Largely peaceful protesters said the underground pipeline threatened Native American sacred sites and drinking water.
  • In Russia, since 2012, at least 14 environmental organisations have had their work curtailed and in June, the head of the group Ecodefence!, fled the country to avoid being targeted under an abusive “foreign agents” law. In April, a court fined an environmental activist for “mass distribution of extremist materials” for posting a satirical poem about mining oligarchs.

During the COP25, participating governments should encourage activists to air their concerns about the climate crisis and their own safety, and draw on their combined expertise to help identify solutions.

They should also commit to rigorously implementing treaties that protect environmental defenders. One is the Aarhus Convention, which the European Union and Poland have been criticised for flouting. Another is Latin America’s Escazu Agreement, which requires just five additional ratifications to enter into force. Chile, which will preside over the COP25, should lead by example and ratify it.

COP25 delegates should recognize that to genuinely protect the environment, they also need to protect its defenders—including those unjustly targeted in the name of security.

Targeted: Counterterrorism Measures Take Aim at Environmental Activists


On November 29, 2019, young people will gather at locations around the world for a Fridays for Future Global Climate Strike. On December 2, United Nations delegates, world leaders, business executives, and activists will meet at the 25th Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25) in Madrid to discuss ways to protect the environment. Participants in these events should also discuss ways to protect the protectors: the individuals and groups targeted around the world for their efforts on behalf of the planet.

The dangers facing environmental defenders do not stop at accusations that they are national security risks. From the Amazon rainforest to South African mining communities, activists seeking to preserve ecosystems and ancestral lands are being threatened, attacked, and even killed with near total impunity, Human Rights Watch has found. But in contrast to many of these illegal acts, the unjust labeling of environmentalists as security threats is often more insidious, as it is generally carried out under the color of law.

And while not all environmental activism is peaceful, only in exceptional cases would the actions of environmental activists meet a generally recognized definition of terrorism – actions aimed at terrorizing populations by causing or threatening death or serious physical harm to others to advance an ideological or political agenda. Nor, in nearly all cases, do their actions aim to undermine the rule of law. Typically, these individuals and groups are peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of speech, association, and assembly. When they engage in civil disobedience, their aim is usually to strengthen – and improve the enforcement of – existing environmental protection measures. Here are a few examples where environmental activists have been smeared as terrorists or other national security threats:

  • In Poland, the authorities denied entry in December 2018 to at least 13 foreign climate activists who were registered to attend COP24 in the southern city of Katowice, contending they posed a threat to public order and national security. Along with other individuals and groups, the activists had planned to press COP24 participants for rapid action to address climate change.

    The authorities had previously passed a special law empowering the police to collect data about conference participants without judicial oversight or the participants’ knowledge and consent and ban spontaneous protests during COP24. They also issued a terrorism alert that authorized increased vehicle checks and other security controls for Katowice and surrounding areas for the duration of the summit. Border officials detained and questioned several activists for hours, in some cases without allowing them to communicate their location or contact a lawyer.

  • In November 2015, French police used a sweeping counterterrorism emergency law enacted in response to the deadly Paris attacks earlier that month to place at least 24 climate activists under house arrest without judicial warrant, raid activists’ homes, and seize computers and personal belongings.

    The activists were accused of flouting a ban on organizing protests related to COP21, which was being held in France the following week to sign the Paris Agreement on reducing emissions that contribute to global warming.

  • In Iran, six members of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation (PWHF), imprisoned since early 2018, were handed prison terms of up to 10 years in November for allegedly spying for the United States. During a deeply flawed trial, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards said the environmentalists used their work to protect the Asiatic cheetah – one of the world’s most endangered species – as a cover. A charge against four of the accused of “spreading corruption on Earth,” a crime that can carry the death penalty, was reportedly dropped in October. Two other PWHF members also detained in early 2018 were awaiting judgment. A ninth environmentalist, PWHF founder Kavous Seyed Emami, died a few weeks after his arrest under suspicious circumstances in what the Iranian authorities alleged to be a suicide.

    Issa Kalantari, the head of Iran’s Department of Environment, said there was no evidence that the detained environmentalists were spies. He said the arrests have had a chilling effect on environmental groups in the country.

    The arrests appear to be motivated both by Iran’s “paranoia” about foreign countries using environmentalists as cover and its recognition that anger over environmental degradation can unite populations against government policies, said Kaveh Madani, the country’s former deputy environmental director. Madani returned to his native Iran from London in 2017 to take up the post, but said he was immediately detained and questioned by Revolutionary Guards, who broke into his phone, computer, emails, and social media accounts, and called him a “bioterrorist,” a “water terrorist,” and a spy. He left Iran after seven months, alleging repeated harassment including for his criticism of dam projects, which are constructed by the Revolutionary Guards.

  • In Kenya, the police and military have frequently labeled environmental activists opposing a mega-infrastructure project in the Lamu coastal region, including a coal-fired power plant, as “terrorists” while subjecting them to threats, beatings, and arbitrary arrests and detentions. In 15 cases documented by Human Rights Watch between 2013 and 2016, the authorities accused environmental defenders of membership in, or links to, the extremist armed group al-Shabab but provided no compelling evidence.

    The activists are protesting construction of the Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) corridor, the biggest infrastructure project in Central and East Africa, which is to include a 32-berth seaport, three international airports, a road and railway network, and three resort cities. They contend that LAPSSET will pollute the air and water, destroy mangrove forests and breeding grounds for fish, and take farmland without just compensation, displacing communities and destroying their livelihoods.

    In July, Kenya’s environmental tribunal blocked approval of the power plant absent a new environmental impact study, finding the China-backed developers’ original assessment and public consultation process inadequate. The rest of the LAPSSET project continues. So does the intimidation campaign, activists protesting LAPSSET told Human Rights Watch.

  • In the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte in 2018 placed 600 civil society members, including environmentalists and indigenous rights defenders, on a list of alleged members of the country’s communist party and its armed wing, which he declared to be a terrorist organization. Duterte’s “terrorist list” included Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, an indigenous Filipina who is the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples and a climate change activist.

    In late 2017, Tauli-Corpuz had criticized the government for attacks and other abuses against indigenous communities that opposed coal and diamond mining on ancestral lands. Although a Manila court months later ordered the government to remove Tauli-Corpuz from the list, a Philippines military official in 2019 renewed the campaign against her, accusing her of “infiltrating” the UN for the communist insurgents. Several UN human rights experts condemned Tauli-Corpuz’s listing.

  • In Ecuador, eight years passed before the prominent environmental activist José “Pepe” Acacho, a Shuar indigenous leader, was able to clear himself of “terrorism” charges for his activities opposing mining and oil exploration in the Amazon. Acacho was charged with terrorism in 2010 for allegedly inciting violence during Shuar protests against a mining law.

    He was convicted in 2013 and sentenced to 12 years in prison. Human Rights Watch reviewed the trial documents and found no credible evidence of terrorism-related crimes. In 2018, Ecuador’s highest court threw out the terrorism conviction but instead sentenced him to eight months in prison for “public services obstruction” – a charge for which he was never tried and hence never had the opportunity to contest. Acacho spent 17 days in jail before receiving a presidential pardon in October 2018.

  • In the US in August 2018, then-US Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke blamed “environmental terrorist groups” that opposed logging for wildfires on the West Coast – a proposition immediately attacked by leading environmental organizations including the Sierra Club. In 2017, 84 members of the US Congress, most of them Republicans, asked the Justice Department if activists mobilizing against the construction of oil pipelines could be prosecuted as terrorists. (The department’s response was that in some cases, yes.)

    That same year, a major pipeline operator, Energy Transfer Partners LP, filed a lawsuit against Greenpeace and other environmental groups, accusing them of launching a “rogue eco-terrorist” campaign against the Dakota Access crude oil pipeline. Environmental activists and Native American tribes had tried to block construction of the 1,172-mile-long, underground pipeline through North Dakota during a protracted standoff with the authorities in 2016, saying it threatened sacred sites and drinking water. A federal court dismissed the lawsuit earlier this year.

    Although the protesters were largely peaceful, some resorted to violence and were convicted of protest-related crimes, but none for offenses that even remotely approximated terrorism. UN experts condemned security force responses to the protests as “excessive,” including their use of rubber bullets, teargas, compression grenades, mace, and “inhuman and degrading” detention conditions.

  • In Russia, at least 14 environmental groups have stopped work in recent years, and the head of the prominent group Ekozaschita! (Ecodefense!), Alexandra Koroleva, fled the country in June to avoid prosecution under the draconian Law on Foreign Agents. The 2012 law requires any Russian group accepting foreign funding and carrying out activities deemed to be “political” to register as a “foreign agent,” a term that in Russia implies “spy” or “traitor.” Authorities have used the law to silence groups that opposed state-sanctioned development projects and petitioned authorities for the release of imprisoned environmental activists, a Human Rights Watch investigation found.

    Russian officials including the special envoy for environmental protection, Sergey Ivanov, have applied the “extremist” label to Greenpeace Russia. An activist with Stop GOK, a Russian group seeking to block mining and enrichment plants, was fined in April 2019 for “mass distribution of extremist materials” because he published a poem on the organization’s social media page that the government had banned as extremist in 2012. The Russian nongovernmental organization SOVA Center, which analyzes counter-extremism trends, found that the poem, “Last Wish to the Ivans,” is a satirical address to destitute, alcohol and drug-addicted Russians from oligarchs and authorities profiting from extracting natural resources.

    Stop GOK and Greenpeace Russia were among groups named in a 2018 report by pro-government technologists as “environmental extremists” working for “influential forces in the West” bent on sabotaging strategic industries. The report was widely covered by state-controlled media.

Civil society participation will be crucial to ambitious outcomes at COP25. Parties to the summit, which include all UN member countries and the European Union, should allow activists ample opportunity to air their concerns about the climate crisis and use their combined expertise to help identify solutions. They should also provide activists with a safe space to speak out about the threats they face for carrying out their work.

In addition, parties should publicly commit to robustly carrying out international and regional treaties that protect environmental defenders. One of these treaties is the Escazu Agreement (the Regional Agreement on Access to Information, Public Participation and Justice in Environmental Matters in Latin America and the Caribbean), the world’s first covenant to include specific provisions promoting and protecting environmental defenders. Twenty-one countries have signed the 2018 agreement. But only six countries have ratified it – five shy of the ratifications needed to enter it into force. Chile, which stepped down as COP25 host because of protests stemming from economic grievances, but will still preside over the negotiations in Madrid, should lead by example and ratify the agreement.

COP25 participants should also commit to upholding the Aarhus Convention (the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters), to which Spain is a signatory. The convention – an environmental pact for Europe, the European Union, and Central Asia – grants the public, including environmental groups, an array of rights including public participation and access to information and justice in governmental decisions on the environment, without harassment or persecution. Parties to the treaty, including the EU, and Poland for its crackdown at COP24, have been criticized – including in some cases by the Aarhus Convention’s own oversight body – for flouting these provisions.

COP25 delegates should recognize that to genuinely protect the environment, they also need to protect its defenders – including those unjustly targeted in the name of security.


Final Frontier Friday: ‘Angel One’


Welcome to this special Black Friday edition of ‘Final Frontier Friday’! I don’t know what makes it special, but I’ve decided that it is! And to mark the occasion, we’re returning to the first season of ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ to take a look back at the timeless anti-classic ‘Angel One’. I hope my pain can at least bring you some small measure of joy. In what is sure to become a leitmotif for this article, ‘Angel One’ had the potential to be so much more interesting than it was. While producer Herbert Wright was wary from the start of having the Enterprise crew encounter a matriarchal society (given the sci-fi and fantasy genres’ long history of “Amazon women” and other such clichés), it was quickly decided that the show would use the crew’s encounter with Angel I to weave an allegory for South African apartheid, with the society being divided along gender rather than racial lines. As the story proceeded through the customary round of rewrites, though, the sexual elements were played up (something that Wright credits at least in part to Gene Roddenberry) and the intended allegory was all but lost and we ended up with, well, […]

South African Gin Is Made With Elephant Waste

  A South African alcohol maker say it is using bodily waste from elephants to make the popular drink called gin. Les and Paula Ansley are the creators of Indlovu Gin. They came across the idea a year ago during a safari. They learned that elephants eat many kinds of fruits and flowers. However, the animals’ bodies only process less than a third of the plant material they eat. Ansley told The Associated Press that, weeks after their trip, his wife woke him up in the middle of the night with the idea. Ansley recalled his wife suggesting, “Why don’t we let the elephants do the hard work of collecting all these botanicals and we will make gin from it?” Ansley noted that elephant waste, or dung, possesses the plant material called botanicals. They are substances often used in gin production to add to the taste. The first load of elephant dung came by mail from the park where the Ansleys had taken their safari. Then the two scientists began searching for the best way to use elephant waste in the gin-making process. Now they collect the dung themselves, using their hands.   They described the gin’s taste as “lovely, wooded, almost spicy, earthy.” The taste, they say, changes a little with the seasons and location. The gin bottles are marked with the date and location of where the elephant dung was collected. “So, you’re able to compare almost different vintages of the gin,” Ansley said. It takes about five large bags of elephant dung to make between 3,000 and 4,000 bottles of the gin. The elephant waste is first dried and broken down into small pieces. Then it is washed to remove dirt and sand. Eventually, only the remains of fruits, flowers and other plant materials are kept. Harmful bacteria and germs are then removed from the botanicals, which are dried again and placed in an airing container. Think of it like a “spice cupboard,” Ansley said. Eventually, the remains are added to the gin.   The Ansleys test the gin on their friends before explaining how they make it. “The initial reaction of most people is, ‘What? There’s no way.’ But most people are very keen to actually taste it,” Ansley said. And once people hear about elephants’ digestive process “it becomes a lot clearer to them, and they accept it very well.” The Ansleys decided to name the gin Indlovu, which means elephant in the Zulu language. They did not say how much of the gin they have sold. A bottle sells for around 500 rand, or about $32. The gin is popular with travelers seeking an unusual gift and a story to tell when they return home. One South African visitor, Elsabe Hannekom, said she felt closer to the animals after touching their waste. “So having a piece of them actually feels … good. An export of the African experience, I would say.” After a drink, another guest, Jade Badenhorst, noted: “Interesting. Very tasty. Very nice.

Aviation satellite network outmoded — Kofi Adda


The Minister of Aviation, Mr Joseph Kofi Adda, has said a recent technical audit of an aviation satellite network which provides voice and data interconnectivity for flights in the Africa Region indicated that the network was outmoded.

He also said the rapid pace of network expansion had brought about challenges of interconnectivity and interoperability in the sector.

The network supported the provision of air navigation services in West and Central Africa, the Indian Ocean and beyond.

Comprising 70 earth stations, the network supported fixed and mobile aeronautical telecommunication services and other critical safety services.


The minister was speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting of aviation agencies in Africa and some countries located in the Indian Ocean (AFI) in Accra yesterday.

Among issues to be discussed at the three-day AFI Satellite Network Management Committee Meeting is how to improve and modernise the work of the network, including the replacement of the obsolete satellite.

Managed by four agencies in the region, the AFI Satellite Network (AFISNET), which was installed 25 years ago, has been rendered obsolete in the face of technological advancement, the non-availability of spare parts and technical support.

The participating agencies are the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), the Nigeria Airspace Management Authority, the Roberts Flight Information Region (Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone) and the Agency for the Safety of Aerial Navigation in Africa and Madagascar, which also manages the space for countries, namely, Angola, Trinidad and Tobago, Sao Tome and Principe and South Africa.


Mr Adda called for the re-engineering of the network, which began in 2012.

He said so far technical specifications for the replacement of the obsolete network had been developed and said the major issue now was how to fund a new network.

He, therefore, urged the participants to come up with decisions that would improve efficiency and effectiveness in the aeronautical systems in the region.

Touching on Ghana’s performance in the aviation industry, he said it remained committed to ensuring safety through the provision of efficient networks and technical expertise and funding.

He said various interventions in the sector demonstrated the government’s commitment to make Ghana an aviation hub in Africa.


The Director-General of the GCAA, Mr Simon Allotey, said the satellite network was funded by the European Union (EU) and commissioned in 1994 as a medium for re-integration to provide digital and modern aeronautical services for the region.

Since its establishment, he said, the network had employed mainly point-to-point communication between adjacent air traffic control centres in West and Central Africa.

Additionally, he said, it eliminated deficiencies in data and voice communication and also contributed to improve air navigation safety in the region.

Randomised controlled trial showed that neonates received better pain relief from a higher dose of sucrose during venepuncture.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 12;107(12):2071-2078

Authors: Kristoffersen L, Malahleha M, Duze Z, Tegnander E, Kapongo N, Støen R, Follestad T, Eik-Nes SH, Bergseng H

AIM: We compared the effect of two different doses of sucrose on neonatal pain scores during venepuncture.
METHODS: This randomised crossover study focused on neonates born weighing more than 1000 g from December 2014 to June 2016, who received neonatal intensive care at two hospitals: one in Empangeni, South Africa, and one in Trondheim, Norway. During two consecutive venepuncture procedures, 27 neonates from South Africa and 26 neonates from Norway were randomised to receive 0.2 mL or 0.5 mL sucrose. Half was administered two minutes before venepuncture and the rest immediately before the procedure. South Africa used 25% sucrose and Norway 24%. Pain scores were measured twice using the Premature Infant Pain Profile-Revised: during skin puncture and after the needle was removed.
RESULTS: The mean pain scores during skin puncture were significantly lower with 0.5 mL sucrose than with 0.2 mL (5.3 versus 6.8, p=0.008), but the mean pain scores after the needle was removed were similar with both doses (4.7 versus 5.4, p=0.29). We found no significant association between weight and pain scores.
CONCLUSION: We showed that neonates received better pain relief from 0.5 mL than 0.2 mL sucrose during venepuncture but not after the needle was removed.

Pretty Yende: Taking on La Traviata

Pretty Yende is a young South African opera singer at the top of her game. Having enjoyed a meteoric rise performing in opera houses internationally, this autumn she took on the lead role of Violetta in Verdi's 'La Traviata' at Paris Opera. In this ‘In the Studio’, the cellist Abel Selaocoe talks to her about her preparations for the role, follows her as the challenging production takes shape, and meets her after her triumphant first performance to find out what it means to her. ‘Even if I want to admit it or not, being the first black person to sing this role at Paris Opera is a huge deal’ Yende tells Abel after opening night. For someone who became interested in opera aged 16 after hearing the Flower Duet on a TV advert, success has come swiftly. She made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in 2013 when she was just 27, and released her first album in 2016. Abel talks to Yende about her background in a Zulu speaking home in Piet Retief in South Africa, and asks what it took for her to get where she is. She reveals the way she approaches her work, and reflecting on the opportunities she has had, says: “I represent every person that was never given the chance to be here. Every one of my brothers and sisters with tremendous talent that never got here. I get to be entrusted with the honour of saying ‘it’s possible’.

United Nations Security Council primacy over military interventions in Africa and the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA)

Title: United Nations Security Council primacy over military interventions in Africa and the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA) Authors: Sousa, RICARDO Real P. Abstract: With the end of the Cold War there is a reassertion of regionalism in the international system. In terms of security, this process has the potential to challenge the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) primacy on decisions over military interventions. This paper investigates this possibility in Africa using a revised version of the historical structure of Robert Cox with elements of conventional constructivism. The results are that: the idea of regionalization of security returned to the academic agenda since the 1990s; inter-organizations norms and policies developed to accommodate an exception to UNSC primacy in cases when the African Union (AU) is awaiting a UNSC decision; there is a significant number of military interventions without UNSC authorization between 1990 and 2010, but after 2010 there is no new military intervention without UN SC authorization or recognition; the low capacity of actors in Africa prevents a more interventionist policy without UN SC authorization, but South Africa and to a less extent Nigeria have the potential to shape interventionism in Africa alongside other countries which are capable and willing to engage in sporadic military interventions in their sub-regions. The paper concludes that the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA), centered at the AU, has the potential to decrease the likelihood of civil war initiation if it works consistently and based on clear guidelines as a security guarantee for governments.

The Paintings of Keya Tama

Keya Tama is a South African artist who says he aims to "reunite old and new through contrasting yet unified iconography." Tama's talent for crafting interlocking creatures, either in the backgrounds of his paintings or in the form of murals, also recalls the work of M.C. Escher. Recently, the Los Angeles-based artist has also been collaborating with others in his pieces, such as the work with Caratoes at the jump.

South African artist Linsey Levendall has a hyper-detailed style that appears at once chaotic and controlled.

Casemiro And Richards Win in Birmingham


By: Oliver McManus

Birmingham was the location for a pulsating night of boxing promoted by Frank Warren. Six title fights featured on the show - including a world title clash and three British bouts. The world title fight on the card saw John Riel Casemiro stop Zolani Tete to claim the WBO bantamweight title. Casemiro started rather nonchalantly but didn’t need two bites at the cherry.

It began quietly with a mutual respect between the two fighters; Casemiro a two weight world champion with the IBF. The Filipino challenger looked serene over the opening rounds and had the time to draw a backwards step and turn 90 degrees on a couple of occasions. There wasn’t much in the way of front-footed pressure from Tete.

The South African was popping away his right handed jab with enough regularity to control the fight. Physically he looked huge in comparison to his challenger - significantly taller and bulkier in the arms, as well. In the third there was what looked to be a short, digging hook from Casemiro that blindsided Tete and dropped the champion. It came about from nothing, really, but it scrambled Tete and after light pressure he dropped to the canvas again.

Casemiro wanted to force the stoppage and it didn’t take much more from the challenger. A couple of swinging shots with Tete at the ropes prompted Steve Gray to call the contest off. The damage came about after Tete dipped his legs and was caught with a solid punch to the body coupled with one to the temple - a brain bashing shot. He was dazed more than anything and just couldn’t regain his senses.

Lerrone ‘Sniper The Boss’ Richards picked up where he left off with a classy over Lennox Clarke. In doing so the super middleweight added the vacant British belt to his Commonwealth title. Having returned to title contention with a smooth win over Tommy Langford, in April, this was the second domestic name on Richards’ record this year.

Challenger Clarke oozed with menacing confidence. He was keen to be first to the punch and prodded away with a lead left to find his range. Richards was quick to circumnavigate away from the threat and Clarke fell short initially. Clarke shortened the gap between his feet and began to edge his way further forward.

Richards, trained by Alan Smith, hit his stride almost immediately. He boxed beautifully from range and was sharp on the balls of his feet - changing direction and angles in a buzz. The Commonwealth champion was sporting bumble-bee themed shorts and his footwork was suitably floaty.

Clarke found his range but what he landed wasn’t of much concern to Richards. The local fighter failing to land with real intent. Richards dealt with the shots comfortably and picked punches off from distance. Clarke’s clunky footwork, moving in straight lines, ensured Richards landed with crisp timing. In brief spells there was good work from the challenger who was keen to stay busy with his output. He was showing variety, as well, and was looking for openings. A strong showing but Richards, still, looking the classier operator.

Sniper The Boss seemed happy at not having to force the pace. The fight was playing out an ebbing rate with Richards confident and competent on the backfoot. Clarke gained respect as rounds progressed thanks to his continued commitment to walking forwards. He landed good shots but they weren’t frequent, or sustained, enough to really catch the eye.

It seemed as though the Commonwealth champion was doing what was required - and not much further than that. He was sticking to the basics, carrying them out well, and in doing so looked a level above his counterpart. Could he have forced his cause? Probably, yes. But he didn’t need to - he was looking the better fight and cruisingly comfortable in the process.

When there were pockets of pressure his hands would loosen and fluid three, four punch combinations would flow. It was intelligent boxing from the southpaw who knew when to flick the switch and when he could play it cool. Clarke did grow into the contest and had more prominent success in the second half; a good eighth, tenth and twelfth round did his courage justice. Clarke’s efforts were commendable - he poured his soul into the contest and felt as though he’d won. After the first six rounds he was getting outclassed but he crawled his way back into it in gnarly fashion. Richards the champion but made to think.

115-113 Clarke, 117-112 Richards, 116-113 Richards.

Anthony Cacace defeated Sam Bowen to secure the British super featherweight title. The contest was a real bone-shaker from the off with both men ‘getting involved’. Cacace was the more tactful tactician whilst Bowen looked to dust him up on the inside. It was a plan that had worked, so far, for the defending champion; against Maxi Hughes and Jordan McCorry he was able to find real success to the body.

Facing a slicker opponent in the form of Belfast’s Cacace posed different questions of the Ibstock boxer. Cacace held his ground as the attacks became more frequent. He retained the sleek, stylish element to his output but was more willing to hustle. Indeed, he bustled. Bowen continued to apply pressure as he looked to hurt his man. For every shot Bowen landed it seemed that Cacace would respond in turn; often with sharper, crisper punches.

The middle rounds saw Bowen having his best rounds. High quality in his output and relentless with his workrate you could see why he was a touted talent. Cacace was able to withstand the pressure and held up to the best of Bowen. From that point and into the final third was where Cacace began to move clear in the contest. Both men trudged forward with their heads down and their hands swinging. Cacace was making the jab count in addition into his more adventurous aggression.

Bowen was tough, he was rough and he was ragged. It didn’t matter what he was getting hit with because he was going to hit Cacace back and be damned if he didn’t. The contest was a real boat floater but the challenger did enough to win. 115-113 from Steve Gray and Howard Foster seemed a fair measure of the fight; 112-115 from Terry O’Connor raised eyebrows.

Chris Jenkins retained his British and Commonwealth welterweight titles but not in the fashion he would have liked. The Welshman was cut after a clash of heads before either man had imposed themselves on the contest. As four rounds had yet to be concluded it was declared a technical draw - Jenkins keeping his belts. He will be eager to avoid cuts when he returns in February / March next year as he looks to win the Lord Lonsdale belt outright.

The two WBO European contests saw Sam Maxwell bounce back to his brilliant best with a seventh round stoppage of Connor Parker. Parker withstood much of the pressure but didn’t look like testing his opponent - the stoppage was welcome with Parker taking punishment and looking to brave for his own good. Hamzah Sheeraz defeated teak tough Ryan Kelly with a fifth round stoppage to claim the super-welterweight belt. The fight was evenly matched for much of its duration but Sheeraz softened his man in the fifth with a sharp body shot. Kelly winced and Sheeraz pounced - a thunderstorm of punches finishing the contest.

Midlands Mayhem Fight Card Preview


By: Oliver McManus

Frank Warren returns to Birmingham on Saturday night for the first time this decade. Fans at the Birmingham Arena will be treated to six high calibre title fights with a packed undercard to boot.

Zolani Tete is the honorary headliner as he defends his WBO bantamweight crown against John Riel Casemiro. The South African, in his fourth defence of the title, competes in his first fight of the year. Having had to withdraw from his WBSS semi-final against Nonito Donaire, due to injury, it is a welcome return for the Queensbury fighter.

His challenger is a former IBF light-fly and flyweight champion who has, more or less, campaigned at 118lbs since defeating Charlie Edwards in 2016. The Filipino captured the interim WBO belt in April with a hearty stoppage over, unknown, Ricardo Franco. That was followed by another solid stoppage: this time against Cesar Ramirez, stopped in the tenth. From those two we can discern that size is unlikely to be an issue - despite what logic suggests.

Tete will hope Casemiro’s hot streak can rub off onto him. The southpaw hasn’t clicked in his last two bouts (against Omar Narvaez and Mikahil Aloyan). In those contests he found himself stifled and unable to fire away shots with freedom and fluidity; against Aloyan it was a particularly ugly twelve round battle. Casemiro is a classy, proven operator and he’s not one to shirk a challenge - he should help produce a looser style of fighting.

That could play straight into the hands of the champion - he is an explosive puncher when given the chance. Or it could prove to be one almighty banana skin.

Lerrone Richards and Lennox Clarke contest the vacant British super middleweight title. Richards returned to the fold in April with a standout win against Tommy Langford whilst Clarke has been awaiting title opportunities patiently.

Sniper the Boss produced twelve rounds of highly skilled output against Langford to outwit his experienced opponent. His footwork was intelligent and caught the eye; Langford was looking to land a leaning, looping hook and Richards took a step back, out of range. As the contest progressed Richards was more comfortable and stood his ground: countering Langford with precise punches.

Clarke, based in Birmingham, has been in the championship doldrums since his mandated clash with Darryll Williams went awry on multiple occasions. Three routine wins since beating Jahmaine Smyle in a thriller (December 2017) have kept the BCB-managed fighter busy. Against Richards this is a real opportunity to put lost time to rest. The 28 year old has proven himself to be a robust boxer with a strong workrate. He’s a more archetypal “boxer” in the sense that he’ll happily stand and ‘have a go’ so the contest could spark at any time.

A very evenly matched contest which pits more silky ringcraft against a home-brewed fighter - should be a cracker.
Another British title fight sees Sam Bowen defend the super featherweight championship against Anthony Cacace . Cacace, like Lennox Clarke, has had to be patient for this contest to materialise with injuries pushing it back.

27 year old ‘Bullet’ Bowen has rifled his way up the domestic scene since turning professional; he became British champion in his 13th fight. After that he inked a contract with Queensbury Promotions and has added the WBO Inter-Continental title to his collection. Against Jordan McCorry, in March, he responded to a live opponent in good fashion. Initially McCorry was lively and fought in the pocket of Bowen but gradually the champion imposed his superior strength. Bowen beat up the body of his challenger until the referee provided the mercy call in the ninth round.

Cacace and his camp have had flowing confidence in the months since this fight was first announced. The 30 year old was mandated for European titles last year but has pursued the British with a fervent desire. Belfast’s challenger has boxed diligently in his seven years as a professional with a tenth round stoppage over Ronnie Clark a noticeable highlight. His combination of swift hand speed and a calm, measured approach to each contest hasn’t seen him with the opportunities he perhaps deserves. Saturday night will be his second crack at a British title, having lost in 2017, and he’ll be determined to make the most of it.

The third British title affair is between, welterweight champion, Chris Jenkins and his mandatory challenger Liam Taylor . 31 year old Jenkins is enjoying a flourishing ‘Indian Summer’ to his career having won the title back in March. Taylor, from Lancashire, has been mandatory since winning an eliminator contest against Tyrone Nurse in November 2018.

His fight with Nurse was an edgy affair with plenty of nip-and-tuck rounds. Nurse, a former British champion, started off the livelier competitor but Taylor did enough to win the second half of the contest. Since then he’s had a solitary fight, against Edvinas Puplauskas, to keep busy. He poses a more orthodox challenge to Jenkins than the more rough, rugged style of Johnny Garton and Paddy Gallagher.

Jenkins has become used to having a scrap with gritty contests between the aforementioned Garton and Gallagher. The champion went away on holiday following his fight with Gallagher, in August, and is “feeling fresh and rejuvenated”. Throughout his career you can’t say he’s been tepid and everything, including the kitchen sink, will be thrown on Saturday. Another evenly matched fight to get the Birmingham crowd on their feet.

Two WBO European fights also take place: Sam Maxwell (12-0) and Connor Parker (12-0) meet for the super lightweight title whilst Hamzah Sheeraz fights Ryan Kelly for the super welterweight belt.

Maxwell will be in his first televised bout since a shaky encounter with Sabri Sediri in March. A more routine win over Oscar Amador, in July, restored order for the sharp-shooting Liverpudlian.

Parker has had a steady twelve months since winning the Central Area title last September. Four fights totaling 20 rounds have followed, including a win over Des Newton, whilst the southpaw has kept busy. He poses a more upright, orthodox challenge than Maxwell is accustomed too.

20 year old Sheeraz will look to go 10-0 with a win on Saturday night. He's been matched ambitiously and Ryan Kelly is no man to be sniffed at. Indeed the 25 year old has already impressed under the glare of TV cameras: he swept aside Kelcie Ball within two minutes last September, live on Sky. Sheeraz has impressed since turning pro in 2017 with a gangly, awkward stature. This one could steal the show.

After 7 year journey, new plant means yogurts will be locally made in Seychelles


A newly established dairy producer -- Maurilait Seychelles -- launched its production plant in the island nation last week and is offering consumers a variety of locally produced yoghurts.

The Minister of Health, Jean-Paul Adam, said it is a great achievement to have a production like this established in Seychelles.

"It adds value in our economy and also brings a product which is healthy to the market, giving a wider choice to Seychellois consumers," he said.

Adam added that this is something that is very positive.

"All of us Seychellois, when we see this product, we are happy to see written on it 'Proudly made in Seychelles'. We feel that it is something very positive in our society," said Adam.

Requiring an initial startup cost of over $2.7 million (SCR37 million), the company has modern equipment specifically designed for the production of fresh yoghurt and yoghurt drinks.

Maurilait Seychelles which is located in the industrial area of Providence on Mahe, operates under the international franchise Yoplait. Maurilait Production Ltée, is a company established in Mauritius since 1976 and member of the Eclosia Group. The group partnered with two Seychellois brothers Andre and Bertrand Rassool to set up Maurilait Seychelles Ltd. Maurilait based in Phoenix, Mauritius.

Procedures to bring Maurilait products to Seychelles started in 2012 and after seven years the project has become a reality. The construction of the factory at Providence started last year and the first products were put on the shelves on September 2.

"We met once in Mauritius with some Mauritian friends who are part of the Eclosia group. At the time, they were already exporting Yoplait to Seychelles in large quantities, and we thought why not produce it locally instead of just importing it. We carried out a market study and we found out that it would be good to introduce the business here," said Andre Rassool. 

He added that the products are already popular in Europe and other islands in the Indian Ocean.

"When you compare Yoplait with other brands already on the Seychelles' market, Yoplait is at the very top. There are other projects in the pipeline that we will announce later," said Rassool.

Employing 19 workers, the plant produces yoghurt -- plain, sweetened, vanilla, strawberry, litchi and mixed fruits -- in 125g pots. The yoghurt drinks, 'Yop', come in four flavours -- fruits and cereals, strawberry, mango and vanilla - in 250-millilitre bottles.

Contrary to long-life dairy products, the new locally-made Yoplait yoghurts contain live and active cultures, which constitute a fresh yoghurt recommended for good digestion and immune function.

The general manager of Maurilait Production, Caroline Rault, told reporters that ingredients come from the same providers as that of the factory in Mauritius.

"The milk powder comes from Europe and New Zealand and as for the fruits, they mainly come from South Africa. We are trying to develop all that we can on a national level," said Rault.

The factory is equipped with a laboratory where analysis and quality control are carried out on a day-to-day basis. To ensure sanitary safety, Maurilait Seychelles provides a traceability system from the supplier to the customers. As for any fresh product, the storage and usage instructions are clearly stated on each pot.

Bashir now faces death over 1989 coup that brought him to power


Deposed Sudan President Omar al Bashir, already on trial over economic crimes during his 30-year reign, faces a possible death sentence over his role in the 1989 coup that removed the democratically elected government of Sadid al-Mahdi from power. During a busy week where he has tried to build confidence in the judiciary following the ouster of Mr al-Bashir in April, Attorney General Taj AlSir AlHeabr said he had formed a committee to investigate the June 30, 1989 military putsch which was led by Mr al-Bashir. The committee’s findings will form the basis of prosecution of the Islamic Movement’s leaders, including civilians and military personnel, for undermining the constitutional system. The charge has no limitation for time lapses and is punishable by death or life imprisonment. “The committee has the competencies of public prosecution of military coup perpetrators,” Mr AlHeabr said. It is empowered to call any person to help with investigations and will report back in three months. The attorney general said he hoped the findings would lay down a marker against forceful take-over of government that has characterised Sudan’s politics. The first coup happened in 1958 just two years after independence when Ibrahim Abboud usurped power. He was dethroned by Jaafar Numeiri in 1969 who later suffered the same fate at the hands of Mr al-Bashir. Mr al-Bashir soon cultivated legitimacy with the international community which did not frown at coups then as it does now until he got isolated over his support of terrorist organisations, hostility to a number of neighbouring governments and his ideological leanings to Sharia law. Sudan Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok is now on a diplomatic offensive to have Sudan removed from the US state sponsors of terrorism blacklist, which has limited its ability to attract investments or secure external financing for development in the face of a $55 billion debt stockpile. Last week, the Sudan Council of Ministers resolved to annul the Public Order Act under which women were severely punished for misconducts as provided under Sheria law. The annulment now awaits the endorsement of ruling Transition Sovereign Council. The committee will later write a criminal report against the masterminds and perpetrators on the 1989 coup. Besides Mr al-Bashir, Ali Osman Mohamed Taha, Nafie Ali Nafie, Ali Al-Haj Mohammed, Ibrahim Al-Sanusi and leaders of the National Islamic Front party led by Hassan Al-Turabi also face charges of undermining the constitutional order. Legal experts said the turn of events would represent poetic justice for Mr al-Bashir who during his reign exploited provisions on crimes against the state to intimidate and prosecute political opponents as well as civilians. Article 50 of the Sudanese Criminal Code of 1991 provides that conviction for actions intended to undermine the constitutional order of the country or to jeopardising its independence or unity attracts punishment by death, life imprisonment and confiscation of property. PREVENT FUTURE COUPS The opening of the 1989 coup has attracted mixed reactions with supporters, saying the now independent judiciary should issue deterrents to prevent future coups. Soon after deposing Mr al-Bashir, military generals led by Abdul Fattah al-Burhan, repeated on a number of occasions that they had foiled coups schemed by uniformed personnel and former elements of Mr al-Bashir’s regime. Critics, however, say the trial over the coup would not be seen as anything more than the new rulers sacrificing their former leader to convince the masses of their reform credentials. Mr al-Bashir and scores of close allies are already in custody on trials ranging from money laundering to corruption. “There are more pressing regime symbols that the transitional authority in Sudan should punish such as corruption, the killing of demonstrators, as well as war crimes in the areas of armed conflict, whether in Darfur or South Kordofan,” said Tariq Osman, a political analyst. Mr al-Bashir has already been indicted by the International Criminal Court over atrocities in the Darfur region. The Hague Court, however, could not secure his arrest while he was in power as countries like Jordan, Kenya and South Africa which he visited waved away obligations to arrest him with claims of his diplomatic immunity. The sovereign council has blown hot and cold on handing him over to The Hague for trial, with its military wing reluctant and the civil wing keen to honour the international obligation. However, Sudan is presently not a signatory to the ICC treaty. The military wing of the Sovereign council is also not sitting pretty after AlHeabr vowed on Wednesday to try killers of protesters at a sit-in outside the military headquarters on June 3. Officially, 63 people were killed when uniformed men fired at protests but independent sources said up to 130 people may have died. Fingers at the time pointed at the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces headed by the deputy leader of the Sovereign Council Mohamed Hamdan “Hemedti” Dagalo for the deaths. The then transitional military council denied the claims saying some protesters were armed. “I will try the killers even if it was Al-Burhan himself as no one is above the law,” AlHeabr was quoted assuring families of victims of the attack by the Middle East Monitor on Thursday. Hamdok ordered an investigation into the deaths in September. *** SUDAN PASSES LAW TO DISSOLVE NCP Sudan has approved the dissolution of the Islamist National Congress Party, which run roughshod over its rivals and citizens during President Omar al-Bashir’s 30-year rule. In a determination to wipe emblems of the regime off the face of the earth similar to when the US deposed Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the ruling Sovereign Council, also outlawed the Public Order Act through which the Sudanese, especially women, were subject to degrading punishments if they did not observe a strict code of conduct akin to Sharia law. Under the resolutions reached on Thursday night, Justice Minister Nasrudin Abdel Bari said the NCP will be dissolved and its leaders banned from political activities for 10 years. Its assets will also be seized by the state as they were amassed through its affiliation to...

Kenya has retained its seat on the Council of the International Maritime Organisation, giving it a chance to continue playing a role in global shipping rule making. The vote on Friday evening in London saw 174 member states take part with Kenya retaining its seat under Category C of 20 countries usually reserved for those with special interest in maritime transport or navigation. In Africa, Morocco, South Africa, Liberia and Egypt are the other members of Category C. Kenya holds special interests in maritime transport and navigation as the coastal, port and flag state “whose strategic location along the Eastern Africa coast makes it a most important cog in the wheel of steering global shipping,” according to Maritime Principal Secretary Nancy Karigithu who led the delegation to the polls. “Our re-election to Council will ensure continued representation of a major geographic area in Eastern Africa and the Great Lakes region consisting of the countries Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda,” she said on Saturday. Kenya’s High Commissioner to the UK Manoah Esipisu, also the Permanent Representative to the IMO, said he was delighted by the vote result. “It confirms the world’s confidence on our leadership around maritime transport and safety, and our commitment to the Blue Economy,” he said. Kenya joined the IMO in 1973 and was first elected to the Council under Category “C” in 2001 and has been re-elected in subsequent elections to date, the last being in 2017. It is one seat at a UN agency where Kenya has dominated lately. But this election saw heavy lobbying. Some marine and shipping giants like Sweden, Nigeria and Liberia lost their bids. Qatar, a wealthy oil producer as well as Saudi Arabia also lost out. The IMO is the specialised agency that determines rules on shipping safety and environment. With more than 80 per cent of global trade running on seas, the IMO’s regulatory framework determines how shipping lines and ports operate. By The Eastafrica

Global Climate Protests Ahead of Madrid Meeting

Protesters in cities across the world staged rallies Friday demanding leaders take tougher action against climate change, days before the latest global conference, which this year takes place in Madrid. Photo by Li-An Lim on Unsplash

BERLIN (AP) — Protesters in cities across the world staged rallies Friday demanding leaders take tougher action against climate change, days before the latest global conference, which this year takes place in Madrid.

The rallies kicked off in Australia, where people affected by recent devastating wildfires joined young environmentalists protesting against the government’s pro-coal stance.

Janet Reynolds said she had come to the rally in Sydney after losing everything in an “inferno, an absolute firestorm that raced through my property.”

“It's so unnatural that I started investigating, reading science and really exploring what's happening with climate change,” she told Australian television.

Student Daisy Jeffrey said protesters had come to help raise money for those affected by the fires and to demand action from the government

“People have lost their homes, people have lost their lives. We have to ask: How far does this have to go before our government finally takes action," she said.

Teenage activist Greta Thunberg, who is traveling across the Atlantic by sailboat to attend the climate talks, sent a message of support to protesters. “Everyone’s needed. Everyone’s welcome. Join us,” she said on Twitter.

Since starting her one-woman “climate strikes” in Sweden more than a year ago, Thunberg has drawn a huge following around the world and inspired thousands more students to regularly skip school on Fridays and join climate protests.

Further rallies took place in Germany, South Korea, Poland, England, Turkey, Italy, Spain and France — where environmental protesters took a swipe at Black Friday.

In Berlin, about two dozen environmental activists jumped into the chilly waters of the Spree river in front of parliament to protest a government-backed package of measures they say won’t be enough to reduce the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. The package was blocked Friday by Germany’s upper house, which represents the country’s 16 states.

Later, tens of thousands of students rallied in front of the Brandenburg Gate.

“The generations before us messed it up,” said 17-year-old Robin Ebelt. “And we’re the ones that will feel the consequences. I would like to spend another 60 years on this planet, grow old and have grandchildren.”

Quang Paasch of the activist group Fridays for Future said governments attending next week’s annual climate conference should keep in mind the goals of the 2015 Paris accord, which set a target of keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit). “We need to keep taking to the streets, we need to defend Paris.”

In South Africa, a few dozen people holdings signs saying “Not Cool” and “Stop Pollution Now” protested outside the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in the summer heat of the Southern Hemisphere.

One protester lay on the ground faking death, holding a sign saying “Black Friday Reason to Grieve.”

Africa contributes least to climate change and is the least prepared to deal with it. Temperatures in parts of the continent are projected to rise more quickly than the global average.

“The reality is that we have a climate change emergency,” protest organizer Elana Azrai said. She noted water shortages in parts of the country amid a drought in southern Africa.

Elsewhere, officials have raised the alarm over unusually severe rainfall in East Africa and a pair of cyclones that ripped into Mozambique within weeks of each other early this year.

Scores of young Nigerians marched in downtown Lagos displaying messages such as “There is no planet B” and “Stop Denying the Earth is Dying” as passing vehicles slowed and honked in support.

The megacity is Africa’s most populous and is among its coastal cities threatened by rising sea levels.

Evaluating a mobile tablet project in rural South Africa against criteria to comply with being an innovative educational ecosystem

Evaluating a mobile tablet project in rural South Africa against criteria to comply with being an innovative educational ecosystem Herselman, Martha E; Botha, Adele; Maremi, Keneilwe J The purpose of this paper is to evaluate a specific mobile technology rural schools project known as ICT4E in South Africa to determine if it complies to be regarded as an innovative educational ecosystem. The criteria that were used were sourced from the literature. The project was explained and why it is regarded as a rural school mobile tablet project in education. Some high-level results and lessons learnt from this project are also provided that was used to evaluate whether it can be regarded as an instantiation of an innovative educational ecosystem. The evaluation methodology was applied to do the evaluation. The main results were that based on the criteria and the findings from the ICT4E project it could be regarded as an instantiation of an innovative educational ecosystem as it complied to most of the criteria except for two where it only partially complied. The project was also seen as a good example of how a country’s system of innovation can be supported from a socio-cultural context-specific perspective. Copyright: ACM Digital Library.

Antibacterial Activities of Extracts from Hypoxis hemerocallidea corm


In developing countries, people with severe/chronic illnesses rely heavily on medicinal plants. Unfortunately, very little is known about the chemical composition of these plants, which means that their effect on diseases is unknown. One of the most popular medicinal plants in South Africa is the African Potato, which is used to treat Tuberculosis, a global health emergency in many developing countries. It is also known to have anti-inflammatory properties and can help with the symptoms of AIDS. While all of these uses have been cited for the plant, very few studies have been conducted to confirm the African Potato as effective. By studying the properties of the plant, this study will explore it’s claimed uses. Samples of Hypoxis hemerocallidea corm were extracted using various techniques. The purity of these samples were tested using thin layer chromatography. The properties of the extracts were studied by testing their antimicrobial properties against Bacillus subtilis, Enterococcus raffinosus, Acinetobacter baylyi, Pseudomonas putida, Pseudomonas fluorescens, and E. coli/DH5a using the Kirby-Bauer method to see if the plant has antibacterial properties. The drug discovery process is very long and costly so by basing the drug design off of the structure and properties of the plant it will decrease the cost and time it takes to design a new drug.


Are You Letting Society or the Spirit Shape Your Story?


Kanye West, Beth Moore, John MacArthur, President Donald Trump and Adam Schiff—what do all of these people have in common? Certainly controversy—lots and lots of controversy. But what else? They all have purpose that should be revealed in their life story. Regardless of the circumstances and choices that have landed them in the news and on the lips of people across the country and around the world, God has a purpose for each one of them. The Holy Spirit wants to shape their life story even though we may see the world trying to define and write their life story, and our life story, for us.

God is transforming lives and filling people with the power of the Holy Spirit, and woe to those who try to prevent that holy work. That's why 2 Corinthians 5:16 (NIV) reminds us of this important truth: "So from now on we [should] regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer." While the world and our flesh tempt us to view others through judgmental eyes and shape people's stories for them, the Holy Spirit is constantly working in people's lives to inspire their story. His presence always invites freedom and brings real change.

This past week I watched an extraordinary moment of God's grace when Kanye West was not only recognized, but received by one of my favorite preachers, Joel Osteen. The backlash was deeply disheartening. If our society will not even accept that a rapper proclaiming "Jesus is King" has been truly saved, imagine how we would have treated Paul. He persecuted and murdered Christians, and God still shaped his story into something that glorified Him! After his conversion he immediately went to get baptized by Ananias and ended up writing several books in our New Testament Bible, not to mention the way God used him to work multiple life-changing miracles. Imagine how different all of our lives would be today if Paul had listened to everyone's opinions about his relationship with God and allowed himself to become discouraged about following the Lord's leading.

What about Peter? He denied Jesus before the crucifixion but then repented of his mistake, and God was able to use him in miraculous ways.

Or what about Abraham? He lied not once but twice about his relationship with his wife to save his own skin, among other indiscretions, and he is still counted as one of the fathers of our faith.

Moses was far from perfect, yet God chose him and used him mightily for the saving of His people anyway. Like Abraham, he appears alongside other giants of our faith in Hebrews 11.

When the power of the Holy Spirit came in Acts 2, all that Jesus had done for His followers came to supernatural life. Just like Peter and Paul were drastically changed, we are too when we receive the Holy Spirit. Since the Holy Spirit changes, restores and radically renews people to Him, who are we to decide if their salvation is authentic? Even if it happens not to be, God is the author of that person's story, and our judgment is like an ugly, black smear on the pages of their lives.

Who are you letting shape your story? And how are you shaping others? Are you letting the Holy Spirit do His work, or are you tuning in to—or even joining—the chorus of voices shouting their opinions? It is clear that Kanye West is not letting the voices of the media define his story. He is unapologetically sharing his faith with the entire world, and the Holy Spirit is working, in Kanye's life and others'. Wow! What a thought—unapologetically sharing your faith with the entire world while the Holy Spirit works in your life. That sounds like a follower of Christ.

You are beautiful! I see Jesus in you.

18 Wind and Solar Markets to Watch in 2020


The world’s total renewable power capacity will grow 50 percent between 2019 and 2024, according to the International Energy Agency. For investors keen to tap into this growth, mostly driven by solar and wind, the question is where to look.

To find out, GTM asked a range of industry experts and insiders for their recommendations on wind and solar markets to watch in 2020. We ignored those markets that already made the list last year.

What follows is a smattering of mature markets returning to form and some that are brand-new.

Without further ado, and in alphabetical order...

Australia: Wind

We listed Australia as a solar market to watch last year, and the country remains one of the more interesting places to invest in PV. But it’s also a big deal for wind power, said Karin Ohlenforst, director of market intelligence at the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC). Even though the country’s large-scale renewable energy target has been reached, she said, “the fundamentals for wind are so good a market of up to 2 gigawatts is expected by 2020.” 

Brazil: Wind

Brazil is another maturing renewable energy market where GWEC sees ongoing opportunities for wind in 2020. The wind industry group expects growth in Brazilian installations, along with those in Argentina and Chile, that will come from the execution of auctioned capacity and growing opportunities for bilateral power-purchase agreements. 

Chile: Solar and wind

Chile has long been seen as one of Latin America’s strongest markets for renewables, and the country continues to attract investment from solar developers such as Spain's Solarpack. “Opportunities can still arise for new solar capacity” in the country, said Solarpack’s CEO, Pablo Burgos, although it remains to be seen whether investor confidence might be dented by the anti-government protests that erupted in October. 

China: Solar and wind

China is hardly a new market for wind and solar, but the offshore wind market “is expected to almost double [in 2020] compared to 2019,” said Rolf Kragelund, director for global offshore wind at Wood Mackenzie. GWEC estimates the offshore wind market could hit 4 gigawatts of capacity. Turning to PV, Wood Mackenzie believes a subsidy-free project pipeline could add 9 gigawatts of capacity to the grid in 2020. 

Ethiopia: Solar

Ethiopia’s hydro-heavy generation mix means the country already has enviable levels of clean energy on the grid. The trouble is that most of the country's residents aren’t on the grid, which is why Ethiopia is looking to boost solar development, said Global Green Growth Institute Director General Frank Rijsberman. “You can put solar on the rooftops, and [then have] mini grids and smaller independent systems” sited in rural areas, Rijsberman said. “Small...utility-scale solar that can deal with secondary cities and so on: That, I think, is the future.”

Greece: Solar

Greece is one of several European markets that Solarpack's Burgos is keeping an eye on in 2020. Renewables investment could benefit from the Greek administration’s decision to phase out coal generation by 2028, announced in September. “Greece is the only country in Southeast Europe to have announced a coal phaseout date,” noted advocacy group Europe Beyond Coal in a press statement. “Details of the strategy to achieve the target will be announced by the end of 2019."

Hungary: Solar

Like Greece, Hungary in Eastern Europe has announced plans to abandon coal, with a switch-off date of 2030. In November, the Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority launched the nation’s first renewable energy auction, giving clarity to the future project pipeline. Burgos said Hungary is now among the European markets “putting solar schemes at the forefront of their renewable energy commitments.”

India: Solar

India’s massive and multifaceted solar market continues to deliver opportunities for investors, with Wood Mackenzie’s Q2 2019 Global Solar PV Market Outlook reporting on “auction activity starting to pick up now that [the] election period is over.” Long-term solar growth in the country is likely to be buoyed by a government target of 500 gigawatts of renewable generation by 2030.

Indonesia: Solar

With its vast population and 6,000 or so inhabited islands, Indonesia harbors massive potential for solar developers. So far, progress has been sluggish, with a rooftop net metering scheme failing to stimulate interest. However, lawmakers changed the rules for rooftop PV in October, potentially paving the way for increased growth. Indonesia only had around 60 megawatts of solar installed at the end of last year but plans to boost capacity to 6.5 gigawatts by 2025.

Netherlands: Solar

Although relatively mature, the Dutch solar market still has plenty of room for near-term growth, with 5 gigawatts of capacity expected to be installed between 2019 and 2020. Despite the country’s low irradiance, its "support mechanisms, in the form of feed-in tariffs and tax incentives, help to boost solar” there, said Burgos.  

New Zealand: Wind

Wood Mackenzie’s wind power outlook for Asia-Pacific gained a lift from an unusual source in September. The analyst firm reported that contract wins in New Zealand would “boost an otherwise dormant market” in Asia-Pacific. Just two large projects, Waipipi and Turitea, added 252 megawatts of capacity to New Zealand’s wind industry pipeline this year. The question now is whether that momentum will be sustained in 2020. 

Oman: Solar

Middle Eastern markets remain a magnet for PV developers thanks to their excellent solar resource, growing energy needs and often favorable regulation. In its Q2 2019 Global Solar PV Market Outlook, Wood Mackenzie singled out Oman for special treatment. “Competitive state tenders continue to be launched at a fast clip, including 1,100 megawatts of new project sites at Manah,” WoodMac said.

Poland: Solar

GTM highlighted Poland’s growing wind potential last year. Despite previous setbacks, the country now seems earnest in wanting to foster renewables, with offshore wind in particular looking to benefit. Solar developers are keen to grab a piece of the action, too. Burgos said the Polish solar market had much in common with Hungary. Both states “have committed to reduce their carbon footprint and both are supporting PV with feed-in tariff models,” he said.

South Africa: Wind

South Africa’s once-vibrant renewable energy market has had a rocky few years courtesy of Eskom, the nation’s beleaguered electricity behemoth. But with the too-big-to-fail state utility slowly getting its affairs back under control, the picture for wind is improving, said Ohlenforst. “After two years of pausing, installations are [set] to pick up again in 2020,” she predicted, with the market poised to top 700 megawatts next year.

South Korea: Wind and solar

South Korea “would like to scale up” on renewables, said Rijsberman of the Global Green Growth Institute. “They have the money [and] the government has the targets.” The problem for developers is finding affordable land in the crowded country, he said. This is hampering efforts to scale up solar development and increasingly putting the focus on offshore wind as a major contributor to South Korea’s clean energy plans.

Ukraine: Solar

Last year the Ukraine was enthusiastically hyped as a wind destination. And in October the market delivered with the announcement of Europe’s largest onshore wind farm, a 750-megawatt monster in the southeast of the country. The country’s PV market, which is now approaching 3 gigawatts of capacity, also remains buoyant despite moves to replace feed-in tariffs with an auction system. Developers such as Solarpack and Scatec Solar are eyeing the market, with the latter installing its first Ukrainian plant in August.

U.S.: Wind and solar

Even as the renewables industry waits to see if there will be an extension to the supporting federal tax credits, developers are bullish about the U.S. market. In the immediate term, the country is in the middle of its biggest-ever build-out of onshore wind capacity, and the offshore market is taking off as East Coast states increase their targets.

Vietnam: Wind

The end of a generous feed-in tariff in June this year saw developers rushing to connect almost 4.5 gigawatts of PV capacity to the grid in a matter of months. Now that the solar rush is over, the government is looking to repeat the trick with wind, also offering enticing incentives, said Rijsberman. “A lot of companies are now doing the same thing for wind in Vietnam as they were doing for large-scale solar,” he said. “What hasn’t really happened yet is rooftop solar, partly because the regulation doesn’t favor it.”

Ambassador Bachir has always been a feverous Pan-Africanist and fighter for Saharawi people’s freedom


Pretoria (South Africa) 02 December 2019 (SPS)- The Charges d’Affaires of the Saharawi Embassy in South Africa, Louali Moussa Zaoui, emphasized that the late Saharawi Ambassador to South Africa, Bachir Radhi, was a feverous Pan-Africanist and fighter for Saharawi freedom and independence, in a speech he gave Monday morning during an official Memorial organized today by the South African Ministry for External Relations in tribute to the late Ambassador.

Presenting a brief account about the Saharawi Ambassador, who passed away last Wednesday, Louali Moussa, recalled that Bachir was “a great son of Africa, who worked all his life in the shadow, far from any personal ambitions, to defend the rights of his African nation, its right to freedom and its right to live sovereign over its land. He died while believing that Western Sahara will get its independence sooner or later because the Saharawi people have spoken he used to say since the 1970s.”

Here is the full text of the Speech:

“H.E. Dr. Naledi Pandor, Minister of External Relations and Cooperation

Your Excellencies Ambassadors and High Commissioners, Ladies and Gentlemen

I stand today in front of you to mourn my Ambassador and a comrade in the freedom-fight for the liberation of the last colony in Africa. A man that was for me, and for many, a live memory and an eye-witness on historical events that characterized the conflict in Western Sahara because he was one of those founders of the Saharawi liberation movement, who assumed important responsibilities in defense of his people since his young age.

The late Bachir Radhi was a brilliant university graduate in mathematics back in 1970. He was one of the first Saharawi University graduates in 1974 and he could have pursued his studies back then to become one of thousands brilliant African scientists if he so wanted. But, he chose to abandon all those personal individual dreams and embraced the cause of his people, having secretly been involved since the early 1970s in the activities of the Polisario Front.

In 1973, while still student in the University of Oran in Algeria, he was chosen by his comrades to secretly distribute the first Communiqué issued by Polisario in May 10th 1973 to declare the constitution of the Saharawi liberation movement. And he did it in the early morning visiting each and every Foreign Embassy in Algiers secretly under the risk to be arrested since then the Algerian authorities didn’t know yet about the birth of the Saharawi liberation movement.

That was one of his first missions, briefly followed with many others he conducted successfully under the direct orders of the Secretary General and Founder of the Polsiario, Martyr Mustapha Sayed.

And in 1975, when the Polisario ordered him to give up his studies and join the diplomatic corps as Polisario’s representative in France, he immediately executed the order and suffered all sorts of troubles, persecution and harassment by the Moroccans and the French authorities, which didn’t allow him to freely do his job. Yet, he did it. And that was the first post in the Saharawi diplomacy he was in charge of, followed by similar posts in New York, Washington, Berlin, Scandinavian countries, at the Saharawi Presidency and Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as a member of the Saharawi negotiating team since the early 1990s and finally in South Africa.

During his tenor in New York and the UN, Bachir was not only working for his country and the Saharawi cause, he was also closely coordinating and collaborating with all African freedom-fighters representing their respective struggles in the UN. He was therefore closely working with ANC, SWAPO, FRILEMO, FRITILIN of East Timor, ZANU-PF and many others. Bachir has always been a feverous Pan-Africanist and has never given up the fight for the freedom of his country or Africa until the last days of his life.

This is a brief account of the man we are honoring Today in this Memorial Service, a great son of Africa, who worked all his life in the shadow, far from any personal ambitions, to defend the rights of his African nation, its right to freedom and its right to live sovereign over its land. He died while believing that Western Sahara will get its independence sooner or later because the Saharawi people have spoken he used to say since the 1970s.

Bachir may have left us with his body, but his spirit will always be alive in the minds and hearts of Saharawi future generations. May his soul rest in peace, Amen!” (SPS)

South Africa calls on UN to urgently appoint a Special Envoy for Western Sahara to reach Freedom


Pretoria (South Africa) 02 December 2019 (SPS)- South African Minister of External Relations, Dr. Naledi Pandor, called this Monday on the UN Secretary General to urgently appoint a Special Envoy for Western Sahara with an aim to achieve the liberation and freedom of the last colony in Africa.

Speaking this morning before an official Memorial organised by the South African Ministry for External Relations and Cooperation to celebrate the life and pay tribute to the late Saharawi Ambassador, Bachir Radhi, who passed away last Wednesday, Dr. Pandor expressed President Ramaphosa condolences to the family of the late, to the Saharawi government and people.

Comenting on the political situation in Western Sahara, Minister Pandor recalled that “the UN agreed that the Saharawi people must be allowed to exercise their right to self-determination”.

Therefore, South Africa calls “on the UN Secretary General to expedite the appointment of a Special Envoy for Western Sahara and the pursuit of concrete outcomes that will result in Freedom," Minister Pandor stressed.

Minister Pandor emphasised that in “this 21st Century, whilst many countries have gained their independence from the oppressive shackles of colonialism, we still have an entire nation living in camps in Tindouf Algeria, unable to reap the full benefits of their territorial rights.”

Going back to the late Ambassador Bashir, she recalled that he “showed great passion and tireless determination in championing the Saharawi cause for freedom and self-determination and was well known for his intellect and sharp analytical abilities," Pandor further said commending the late Ambassador.

"In all the engagements he had with our Government he conveyed messages emphasising the Saharawi’s inalienable right to self-determination and the restoration of the Saharawi’s territorial integrity," she added.

"It is sad that Ambassador Bashir lived a difficult life because of the pain of separation from his family and  friends but most of all from his beloved homeland.  As a result of his illness he travelled back to a place called home, the camps in Tindouf" , Minister Pandor regreted.

Dean of the Diplomatic Corps, Ambassador Bene M'poko has taken to the podium to pay tribute to a colleague, Ambassador Radhi-Sghaiar Bachir, Ambassador of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic to the Republic of South Africa. (SPS)

The Saharawi Charge d’affaires, Mr. Louali Moussa Zaoui, speaking on behalf of the Saharawi government, presented a brief account about the life and struggle of the late Ambassador, recalling his merits as one of the first Saharawi diplomats.

Giving the main Eulogy, Minister Pandor presented the condolences of the South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, and the government of South Africa to the Saharawi government and people about this huge loss.

She further stressed the dedication of the late Saharawi Ambassador who “showed great passion and tireless determination in championing the Saharawi cause for freedom and self-determination and was well known for his intellect and sharp analytical abilities.”

She called on “the UN Secretary General to expedite the appointment of a Special Envoy for Western Sahara and the pursuit of concrete outcomes that will result in Freedom."

The Memorial was also an opportunity for solidarity groups with the Saharawi cause to present their respect to the late and give moving speeches about their experiences and interactions with the late Ambassador. (SPS)

Evo Morales didn’t resign, he was overthrown by a coup d’état


Evo Morales Ayma in Cochabamba, Bolivia on June 4, 2012. Photo by Juan Manuel Herrera/OAS.

As of today, Evo Morales, the Indigenous president of Bolivia, was forced to resign the presidency. His Vice President, (Alvaro Garcia Linera) also resigned, as did Adrianna Salvatierra, the President of the Senate, who was supposed to assume the presidency in Morales’ absence. At the time of this writing, the Wiphala Indigenous flag, has been lowered throughout the country by the opposition. Morales, the country’s first Indigenous president, is the standard bearer of generations of Indigenous socialists. His removal represents the return of the old oligarchy. This is a coup against the arrival of the Indigenous peoples of Bolivia to the forefront of history.

For weeks, rightwing protestors have targeted Morales’ party, the Movement Toward Socialism (or MAS in Spanish). They have burned down party members’ homes and offices, attacking their supporters. Recently Patricia Arce, mayor of Vinto, was kidnapped by a mob. They cut her hair, threw paint over her body, and forced her to walk barefoot, publicly humiliating her. The mob has blockaded the headquarters of Bolivia TV and the Patria Nueva radio station. At the time of this writing, right wing forces are ransacking and burning President Morales’ home and are trying to arrest him.

This is not a resignation. No one resigns with a gun to their head.

Bolivia’s political and economic elite support this violence, as part of a resurgence of the far right in Latin America. Activists on the ground are currently getting smashed by these forces. We, the undersigned, denounce this violence, and preemptively denounce the violence that will inevitably escalate in the street. We call on the United Nations to make a statement denouncing the undemocratic nature of the coup and the strong-arm tactics of its backers.

CAFCC: Big Spender And Debutants Pyramids FC Hope To Add To Rangers Woefulness In Enugu


After a dream start to their maiden continental campaign with the highlight being a place at the lucrative group stage, Egyptian debutants Pyramids will kick off their group stage campaign away to Nigeria’s Rangers in Enugu.

Last year’s revamp saw Pyramids, founded in 2008 under the name “Al Assiouty Sports” metamorphosing from Egyptian Premier League minnows to big spenders, after Emirati businessman Salem Al Shamsi acquired ownership of the prominent Egyptian football club. 

Al Shamsi, who was previously the club’s vice president, takes over from Saudi General Entertainment Authority chairman Turki Al Sheikh.
Their first season under the new name “Pyramids FC” ended in a third place finish in the Egyptian top flight, that earned them a place in this season’s Total CAF Confederation Cup.
With the help of experienced players, led by former Al Ahly playmaker Abdullah Elsaid, Ghanaian hitman John Antwi and Burkinabe Eric Traore, Pyramids entered their first ever continental adventure by recruiting ex- Uganda coach Sebastien Desabre to guide them banking on his knowledge of the African game.
The Frenchman guided the debutants to overcome the hurdles at Congo’s Etoile du Congo, Algeria’s CR Belouizdad and Tanzanian giants Young Africans to reach the group stage, with an impressive record of five wins and a draw in six matches, including three away victories.
And they are inspired by their impressive away record as they visit the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu this Sunday, as Group A of the CAF Confederation cup group stage kicks off, with fellow Egyptian outfit Al Masry and fellow debutants Nouadhibou of Mauritania completing the group.

Rangers enjoyed a preliminary round bye, before defeating Gabon’s AS Pelican and Togo’s ASC Kara on their way to the group stage, where they are looking to do better than last season when they failed to qualify for the quarterfinals.
Having won their previous two home games, Rangers will hope this form carries on to start the group stage on a positive note after appointing former Nigeria coach Salisu Yusuf days ahead of the clash as directed by the football federation for technical support.
Yusuf, who guided Nigeria to a runner-up spot at the Total African Nations Championship in Morocco in 2018 replaces Benedict Ugwu, who was shown the exit door after a 2-0 loss to newly promoted Akwa Starlets in the Nigerian top flight at the weekend.

Thanksgiving on board Seattle

“I’d really enjoy the warmth of a crackling wood fire right now,” Seattle-born crew member Mitchell Sundt exclaimed as he wrote his daily blog, thousands of miles from home. Mitchell is on board the Seattle yacht, currently competing in the Clipper Race from Cape Town to Fremantle, Australia.

Mitchell, a former Software Engineer, is one of 66 Americans who have left regular jobs behind to take part in the 40,000 nautical mile Clipper 2019-20 Round The World Yacht Race. The event is known to be one of the toughest endurance challenges on the planet and is unique in that it trains ordinary people to become ocean racers. The American Race Crew hail from Atlanta to Seattle, and Nashville to New York and their hometowns vastly differ to the crew’s current surroundings.

IMAGE: On board GoToBermuda

Whilst the teams battle extreme weather conditions, huge waves that can catch you at a moment's notice and living life at an extreme angle, Thanksgiving did not go unmarked. Typically the time to spend with friends and family, it can be tough for those so far from home, but for these intrepid adventurers, they have made the most of what they have in the middle of nowhere, celebrating in a unique way and feeling grateful for the support they have within their new found ‘family’.

IMAGE: On Board Seattle

On board Qingdao, the team currently in the lead, John (Jody) Shaw from Waterford, Michigan, commented: “We had a raffle for candy as a celebration. We enjoyed the celebratory culture of Qingdao with music blasting in the galley and lots of laughs.”

Crew member, John Hawkins from Seattle, and part of the Seattle team, described the experience of marking the holiday: “Thanksgiving in the Southern Ocean. Let me just say, from our home to yours, may we all be blessed with a warm home, plentiful food, and rich spirits to share with family and friends on this Thanksgiving Day.

“This year's festivities are a bit different indeed, as we've all traded our warm homes, nice crackling fires in the front room, and a snuggly soft bed to crawl into after the fun evening is done, for the Clipper Race ‘Adventure Fun Camp Boat Ride’. The inviting warm fireplace and decorated mantle has been traded for a warm glowing blue stove flame under a lovely chrome tea kettle. The comfy cushy bed with a collection of down pillows has been exchanged for a tiny cot pad on a hammock bunk that never lays flat.”

IMAGE: On board Seattle

He went onto describe how on board, they have created their own versions of the decorations and food enjoyed at home, “We did enjoy a delightfully nostalgic dinner with most all the wonderful flavors of the most favorite American family holiday. And for all that goes along with trimming the turkey dinner, and trimming the decorations on the tree - we are constantly trimming every day.” Trimming the sails is just one of the tasks the crew are experiencing whilst facing Mother Nature.

IMAGE: On board Ha Long Bay, Viet Nam

Having left Cape Town, South Africa, on Sunday 17 November, teams will have been racing around the clock for approximately 24 days when they make landfall at Fremantle Sailing Club, WA, from Monday 9 December.

To read more about how the crew have enjoyed Thanksgiving along with their many adventures at sea, read their crew blogs here.

For anyone thinking they’d quite like to get away from it all next Thanksgiving, the Clipper Race is currently recruiting for crew for the 2021-22 edition. Register your interest here and take the first step in joining an elite club; more people have climbed Mount Everest than sailed around the world.

The first IPPC ePhyto and Emerging Pests workshop for African countries

**18 November 2019, Maryland, USA** – The first IPPC ePhyto and Emerging Pests workshop for African countries took place from 18 to 22 November 2019 at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Inspection Services (APHIS) offices in Maryland, USA. The workshop was jointly organized by USDA and the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) Secretariat. It was opened by Mr John Greifer, Master of Ceremonies, Mr Osama El-Lissy, USDA/APHIS Senior official, Mr Craig Fedchock, IPPC Secretariat Special Advisor, and Mr Jean Gerard Mezui M’ella, Secretary General of the Inter-African Phytosanitary Council (IAPSC). Workshop participants came from twenty-one African countries, the IAPSC, the Economic Community of Western African States and the IPPC Secretariat. **The IPPC ePhyto workshop** Key objectives of the IPPC ePhyto workshop were to ensure national plant protection organization (NPPO) participants: • developed a strong understanding of the IPPC ePhyto Solution and more specifically the Generic ePhyto National System (GeNS); • understood the benefits of GeNS for industry and government; and • were able to prepare plans for implementing GeNs in their country and region. The workshop included: • a detailed demonstration on GeNS functionality and customization; • an update from Ghana - a GeNS pilot country that has been exchanging ePhytos through the system since July 2019; • a live demonstration of an ePhyto exchange between Ghana and the USA; and • a breakout session where participants from different countries discussed what actions were needed to implement the ePhyto Solution. **Emerging Pests workshop** Immediately after the two-day ePhyto workshop, a workshop on emerging pests took place from 20 to 22 November 2019. An emerging pest is a pest that has been accidentally introduced into a country where it was previously unknown and produces considerable damage on plants. Several cases have been recently noted in Africa – including the Fall Armyworm (FAW) which is currently the region’s most dangerous pest. Representatives from APHIS and the North American Plant Protection Organization (NAPPO) gave presentations on surveillance activities for emerging pests and pest management in the United States, with a focus on FAW. Their presentations were complemented by updates from Zambia and South Africa about their experiences in surveying and managing these pests. Simulation exercises on new ways to detect and respond to pests were also organized. Some participants noted that implementing the methods explained by APHIS in Africa would require additional support in terms of funding and human resources. Nonetheless, they appreciated the information provided as a starting point for protecting plant health in their countries. Participants committed to finding solutions adapted to their national conditions with the help of the IPPC and APHIS-USDA. The emerging pest workshop was hosted by APHIS and jointly funded by the APHIS and the IPPC. ![enter image description here][1] *Participants from 21 African countries attended the IPPC ePhyto and Emerging Pests workshop. © FAO* [1]: /static/media/uploads/news/ephyto_emerging_pest_3.jpg

New terminal operator launches business in the Port of PE

Bidfreight Port Operations (Pty) Ltd (BPO) officially launched its Multi-Purpose Terminal operations in the Port of PE on Friday, 29 November after completion of its refurbishment to Sheds 10 and 11.Transnet National Ports Authority’s (TNPA) Port of PE announced in February this year the appointment of its third terminal operator at the Multi-Purpose Terminal (MPT). BPO became the second private terminal operator at the MPT after the successful award of a Section 56 terminal operator license through an open tender process. The license awarded to BPO required the design, development, financing, construction, operation and maintenance of the sheds. The project has now officially been completed with the sheds transformed into state-of-the-art facilities ensuring vital volume growth of multi-purpose cargo passing through the Port of PE, boosting the economy of Nelson Mandela Bay and providing much needed jobs. A Section 56 agreement, in terms of the National Ports Act, allows TNPA to sign terminal operator agreements with private-sector companies to reduce the cost of doing business and improve the competitiveness of South African companies.The strategic partnership between TNPA and BPO has ensured the critical creation of jobs during the construction phase, the promotion of rural development through skills development in the construction industry, empowering local BBBEE businesses and increasing local business revenue. Rajesh Dana, Port Manager of the Port of PE said, “The transformation that BPO has brought to the MPT through the refurbishment and upgrade of Sheds 10 and 11, is testament to what a Section 56 agreement can achieve through collaboration with industry players. BPO has provided great investment into the sheds and has further ensured that TNPA delivers on its mandate of ensuring economic growth in Nelson Mandela Bay, through successful facilitation of business opportunities.”“Reaching this milestone of completing the construction and facelift of the Port of PE’s sheds is attributed not only to the hard work and commitment shown by our BPO employees, but also to the manner in which the TNPA Port of PE team has supported and facilitated the process in getting us to this point. BPO can now optimally strive to surpass the values enshrined in our motto: In place. On Time.,”  said Jannie Roux, BPO’s Managing Director.BPO is a fully empowered Level 2 BBBEE entity and is one of the largest providers of in-port logistics in South Africa. BPO aims to create at least 30 new permanent jobs in the logistical supply chain through their PE operation, enhancing their reputation of world-class expertise in stevedoring, transport, agency clearing and forwarding as well as warehousing.

METRO FM — The government intends to make the National Sex Offenders Register more accessible to the public but is wary of "vigilante justice”. Inparliament yesterday deputy justice minister John Jeffery, said government is looking to expand the register to include all people convicted of sexual offences, and access to it. He cautioned that this is something society has to debate carefully, as South Africans have a penchant of taking the law into their own hands. The Sexual Offences Act provides that names of people convicted of sexual offences against children or people with mental disabilities must be included in the register. But the law only gives employers in the public or private sectors of people looking after children or people with mental disabilities access to the register, to check that the person being hired is fit to work with children or mentally disabled people.


METRO FM — Clothes among African people in South Africa form a significant part of the Christmas celebration. Traditionally, every year parents in different areas buy their kids sets of clothes for Christmas celebrations. These brand new clothes are worn on Christmas day and New Year’s day.

Almost 9,500 complaints were closed, and on average it took 104 days to settle the complaints. Motor vehicle insurance represented 48% of the total number of finalised complaints. But only 18% of motor vehicle insurance disputes were resolved in favour of the client. This was even lower for household content insurance disputes (15%) and homeowner’s insurance disputes (12%). In more than two-thirds of finalised complaints, consumers complained about the insurer’s decision on a claim. Most complaints related to the rejection of a claim on the basis of an exclusion or warranty in the policy terms and conditions.

METRO FM — Stats SA’s Inequality Trends in South Africa, released last Thursday, showed that white people earned three times more than black people on average. The report also found that the wage gap between SA's groups increased between 2011 and 2015. It said black households faced the highest level of unemployment and earned the lowest wages, while white people's salaries were higher. The average monthly earnings among black people were R 6,009 in 2006 and R9,186 in 2015, while the figures for the white population were R77,308 in 2006 and R100,205 in 2015.

The report, which also studied poverty trends, concluded that households headed by black people and coloureds were

Bulbous finale


Sternbergia lutea
Snow predicted (again!) tonight, but the last week Indian Summer returned and yesterday was almost hot--November 9! How astonishing that bulbs can make it through such weather--providing a colorful finale to the season (just as they usher it in again in not too many weeks from now!). My sternbergias are not the massive clumps I see photographed in Greece this time of year--but they come back reliably nonetheless...

Crocus speciosus

 This time of year, every blossom is precious. And we have time to linger over each one!

Crocus speciosus
 It's so inexpensive and easy to grow, one sometimes almost forgets that it's the biggest and most lumious and most indispensable crocus!

Crocus speciosus
 Same clump later in the day, from above...we do have time to linger over the few plants in bloom!

Oxalis melanosticta  'Ken Aslet'
 This gets bigger each year: inspired me to buy 50 more South African bulbs (Moraea, Ferraria and Romulea) to test for hardiness...

My dinky plants of Cyclamen cilicium are pitiful compared to Bob Nolds' or Mary Hegedus: they'd do better if I didn't keep digging them up by accident when they're dormant!

Crocus thomasii
A new species this fall
Crocus medius
Commercial stocks are said to be infected with virus--which may explain why my dozen bulbs are now one clump.

Colchicum procurrens
 A tiny colchicum I obtained from Jane McGary years ago gets better and better each year...

Colchicum cilicium?
The late season biggies are confusing to me: I need to map and label things better!

And so it goes, another year of flowers is slowly petering out. Back to bark, berries, branches and brandy!

Market Wrap - Stock Pick — AB InBev

Business Day TV — Independent Analyst, Liston Meintjes chose AB InBev as his stock pick of the day. "I'm staying with AB InBev, and one of the reasons is that they haven't been performing well for quite some time, but you know I do believe people drink beer and I do think that they have a fantastic global reach. We do know that they got into an over geared situation which is not good but they do have that wonderful thing called fast moving cash goods and as long as they're selling beer money, will roll in. The problems will go away over time and by the way it is totally free of any currency question, any South African political overtones and whatever may happen in the next two weeks it's not going to affect them."

Live in Lesotho

On December 28, 1980, Hugh Masekela and Miriam Makeba performed before a crowd of 75,000 in Lesotho, an enclaved country entirely within the borders of South Africa, in a historic concert that confronted and unnerved South Africa's white supremacist regime. Masekela and Makeba, long exiled from their home country, would not return home to South Africa for another decade. The initial print-run of the concert record was only a few hundred and soon fell into obscurity; today, nearly 39 years after the historic concert took place, the concert record is being re-issued.


Zimbabweans pushed to the brink by drought and economic meltdown


Unlike previous crises, millions of urban dwellers are threatened along with the rural population.

Millions of people in Zimbabwe are on the brink of starvation as the southern African country struggles with relentless drought and the impact of cyclones, against a backdrop of years of economic decline.

“Within weeks the country may run out of maize, the staple food,” said Verity Johnson of CAFOD. “At best there will be further massive hikes in food prices for an already desperate population, who have seen the price of maize meal [flour] increase five-fold since the beginning of the year. There are severe bread shortages across the country. Where it can be found, a loaf of bread in Zimbabwe now costs up to fifteen times more than it did a year ago. In the struggle to feed their children, parents are going without themselves.”

People are also facing severe water shortages as dams and rivers dry up and urban supplies fail, exacerbated by lack of maintenance. Crippling power shortages are set to get worse, with the Kariba dam, the country’s main source of electricity generation, down to less than a fifth of capacity.

CAFOD is starting to receive worrying reports from volunteer health workers; one told us that he has noticed a number of breastfeeding mothers not able to feed their babies because they [the mothers] are malnourished, and not producing milk.

“People are already dying from poor nutrition and disease as health provision fails, but this could substantially increase”,  Ms Johnson added, warning of “a prevailing sense of despair”.

The UN warns that 7.7 million people, over half of Zimbabwe’s population, are short of food. This is more than anywhere else in the world, apart from the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and Yemen, all of which are conflict zones.

Unlike previous crises, millions of urban dwellers are threatened along with the rural population. Zimbabwe’s Christian church leaders have cited “systemic corruption, shortages of fuel, prices going out of control and collapse of the health sector” as characterising “the current deteriorating economic crisis”.

Neighbouring maize exporters such as South Africa and Zambia have suffered crop failures of their own, because of the impact of climate change in the region. According to the UN’s Inter Governmental Panel on Climate Change, Southern Africa is warming at about twice the global rate and is set to become drier with frequent droughts and increased number of heatwaves. This is a disastrous situation for Zimbabwe, where most of the rural population depend on rain-fed farming to live.

Geneva couple recalls fighting South Africa's apartheid system

GENEVA – Nobody knew how dangerous the relationship between Paula Merrington and her husband Gary van Breda was until she mentioned it during a candidate forum while she was running for alderman.

They met in Cape Town, South Africa. She was a white woman and he was – in the vernacular of apartheid in 1988 – a colored person.

“Apartheid was still the law of the land,” van Breda said.

Apartheid – meaning “separateness" in Afrikaans – was a system of institutionalized racial segregation.

The irony here is that van Breda himself is descended from one of the founding families of the white branch of Africaner people in South Africa. They arrived in 1719. His ancestry is a mix of black and white people that predate formal apartheid.

When van Breda and Merrington first began dating in 1991, it was illegal under the Immorality Act, which made sexual relationships between white Europeans and anyone who was not white a crime.

“We had to pretend we were not dating,” van Breda said.

“There were no public displays of affection,” Merrington said. “It was still on the law books and the police – it was hit and miss how they would respond.”

Merrington and van Breda got married on March 12, 1994 while the Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act was still the law of the land.

But the apartheid system was coming apart, amid protests and other nations putting sanctions on South Africa.

“We got married outside, under a big, beautiful tree,” Merrington said.

They voted in the nation’s first democratic elections in April 1994 – the first in which citizens of all races were allowed to participate.

Then they moved to the U.S. to follow job opportunities and to get away from the vestiges of apartheid.

"We had lived with it and we were just tired," van Breda said.

First living in New Orleans for three years, then Seattle for nine years, then Atlanta for eight, they have now called Geneva home for the past five. Their son Shaun, 19, is a college student, and their daughter, Grace, 16, is a junior at Geneva High School.

Merrington was a Red Cross nurse and a pediatric ICU nurse, but currently works as a contractor for FONA.

Van Breda is McDonald’s director of global food safety, and is currently working on a master’s degree in food science with a concentration on pathogenic microbiology.

Their story seems to mirror a frightening past that is being resurrected with a current rise in white nationalism and racism in general.

“It doesn’t surprise me that this is happening now,” van Breda said. “Why would it have gone away?”

‘There was no crossing over’

In 1988, van Breda was studying microbiology and biochemistry at the University of Cape Town.

He and Merrington met because he needed a place to stay that was closer to campus.

“Certain areas were restricted for black, colored, Asian and white students in transportation, housing, schools, jobs and marriage and relationships in general,” van Breda said. “The off-campus housing where I was living was a part of Cape Town designated for colored people (that was) pretty far from the university. There was no crossing over."

South Africa was in a crisis in the 1980s, he said.

To put things in historical perspective: It was not uncommon for him to be on a bus, on his way to class, when it was suddenly turned around because there were tires on fire in the road or people being shot with tear gas or rubber bullets.

The violence was such that he had trouble focusing on his studies in what was a daily struggle just to go back and forth to school. So he looked for on-campus housing and saw an ad for an available room very close to the university.

“I just took a stab without really having any expectation. So I knocked on the door and Paula answered,” van Breda said. “I said, ‘Well, I really need a place to stay.’ ... I was expecting, ‘Well, we don’t have accommodation for people like you.’”

As van Breda prepared to be refused, Merrington told him, “Well, if my dog likes you, maybe we have a chance.”

Her dog Gia was a rescue mutt, a big Alsatian-mix who liked van Breda. The dog used to accompany him to class.

“I wanted a good person to share a home with,” Merrington said. “I did not care about anything else.”

'It was a police state'

Van Breda was born in South Africa, while Merrington was from Zimbabwe, born there during the civil war, from 1965 to 1980.

She left in 1980 to go to nursing school in Cape Town.

As it turned out, they were both politically active.

“The thing that really brought us together was because there was an escalation of violence in South Africa at that point. Paula and I were part of an organization that provided support for protest marches that were illegal," van Breda said.

Merrington belonged to the Health Workers Society, founded in 1980, one of several health organizations that advocated for a democratic health system in South Africa.

They put together little first-aid kits that Merrington and others used to provide medical support for those injured during apartheid protests.

“It was a police state,” Merrington said. “They had this law that you could not have … more than six people congregating at one time. … There was no free press at this time. It was a state-controlled media, television and newspapers. Journalists were put in prison all the time and they disappeared."

Because of that, details of what happened was word of mouth, oral history, she said.

Music, art, poetry and plays were used to protest apartheid, something the government could not control, Merrington said.

‘We could hear the bullets all around us’

They were friends first, but eventually – and dangerously – they became romantically involved. So there was this double danger of breaking the apartheid law and of going to protests against apartheid to provide aid to protesters.

“Gary went to hear a famous religious leader and we were waiting outside a church to go in and he got hit across the face,” Merrington said.

“They smashed my face and my nose was broken,” van Breda said.

Another time, they went to a funeral for two activists.

“Police arrived and told us to disperse ... and they just started firing with no warning,” Merrington said.

“We ran to a church and within seconds, they fired tear gas into the church. We went out … to a driveway breezeway and down the driveway, maybe 200 yards away, police were pointing guns at us,” Merrington said. “They just started firing at Gary and me.”

“We could hear the bullets all around us,” van Breda said.

An anti-apartheid march on Sept. 2, 1989 in Cape Town, was called The Purple March because police fired water cannons with purple dye on thousands of protesters with the intent of identifying them later for arrest. Merrington and van Breda were both sprayed purple.

“They said, ‘The purple shall govern,’” Merrington said. “It was a play on words: ‘The people shall govern.’ … On this particular day, a protester took control of the water cannon and he sprayed government buildings."

As they were running away, someone pulled them into St. George’s Cathedral, she said.

“Bishop Desmond Tutu was actually … grabbing people off the street and giving them clean clothes" so they would not be identified by the purple spray, and be arrested by police, Merrington said.

Considering the current times with a rise of racism and white nationalism, Merrington said, “Have we learned nothing from the last 100 years?”

“Gary and I nearly lost our lives fighting (racism). … That is why we are passionate about being out there,” Merrington said. “You see little micro-aggressions. Little things. People laughing at 'slightly' racist jokes. And we’ve lived with this threatening our lives. It’s not funny. It’s real.”

Van Breda said he did not expect racism go to away – then or now.

“The only change in our lives was that the law went away. But people with with that type of attitude toward people of color still remain,” van Breda said. “Having said that, I think that I’m pretty inspired by the new generation, as I talk to people who are my son's and my daughter’s age and younger. There is less entrenched racism.”

Globe At Home will continue to connect more Filipino homes in the future

Senior Vice President and Head of Broadband Business Martha Sazon discussed how Globe at Home products played its role in digital transformation in the Philippines during AfricaCom 2019. 
Globe At Home will continue to connect more Filipino homes in the future
Martha Sazon discussed the business case at AfricaCom 2019

Digital transformation starts at home

Martha Sazon presented the case in which prepaid Internet infiltrated developing places like the Philippines and South Africa, at an increasing rate. It was also added that Globe’s strategy on the broadband network and prepaid home internet served as one of the stimulants for the digital transformation here. 

She also shared that the Philippines is small but highly social and connected. We Are Social’s PH Internet 2019 report indicated that Filipino’s internet usage is 71 percent versus the 57 percent global benchmark.

For social media usage, it is also 71 percent against the global benchmark of 45 percent. Sazon further remarked, Internet at home in the Philippines is commonly used for entertainment and life enablement. For instance, moms now go online for their home businesses like reselling products from e-commerce platforms such as Lazada. The youth, on the other hand, use the Internet as a "life-hack" tool for acquiring skills such as learning to code or even getting access to job opportunities.

On the other hand, a large percentage of Filipinos do not have Internet access at their own homes as only 20 percent is reported to have internet access. This can be due to a lack of cheaper home Internet packages in the market and limited in-home coverage since the majority of homes that are not digitally connected belong to lower socio-economic segments.

Globe launched Globe at Home Prepaid WiFi in 2017, the first home prepaid Internet device in the country to address the said problems. Globe at Home Prepaid WiFi is an affordable plug-and-play reloadable device that said to be twice as fast as and wider in coverage than the typical pocket WiFi. Aside from that, prepaid customers also received free 10GB of data upon device activation. This can be conveniently consumed by up to 6 devices for the price of PHP 1,499 only.

By introducing this home prepaid internet device increased the Globe’s subscribers by almost twice so it leads to the birth of the Globe Streamwatch Xtreme Prepaid. This product is claimed to be the world's first all-in-one device that serves as a Prepaid WiFi device, Android TV, digital free TV box and karaoke-ready machine.

All can be afforded for a one-time payment of PHP 2,999.

Globe at Home has a goal to connect 2M households through high-speed internet by 2020.

Yellow Jackets: Highly Social Little Stingers


Editor's Note: This story by Victor Rogers was published first on Nov. 20, 2019, in the Georgia Tech News Center. It was slightly modified for the College of Sciences website.

Fall is yellow jacket season. Not football or basketball, but the time of year when colonies of yellow jackets — the insects — reach their maximum size. It’s also when Professor Michael Goodisman and the Goodisman Research Group collect their nests.

“We typically collect nests for a month or so beginning in late October, which is prime time for collecting. The colonies usually die off around Thanksgiving, and are completely dead by Christmas — although climate change may be moving the dates,” said Goodisman, associate professor and associate chair for Undergraduate Education in the School of Biological Sciences.

Humans usually cross paths with the yellow jackets’ underground nests a couple of times a year. The first is between April and June, when people tend to mow their lawns frequently. The second is fall, when it’s time to rake leaves.

“Yellow jackets are particularly aggressive this time of year,” said Goodisman, whose team collects the insects alive, albeit somewhat sedated. The underground nests typically have a single hole, about the size of a silver dollar, for entering and exiting.

“We pour a little bit of anesthetic into the hole. It does the same thing to them that it does to us — it knocks them out,” Goodisman said. “Then we try to dig up the nest very quickly before they come to. We pull the nest out and bring it back to the lab.”

When collecting nests, Goodisman and the team wear beekeepers’ uniforms with long pants underneath for additional protection. Yellow jackets are aggressive and will push their way through air holes in the pith helmets, so the researchers cover them with tape to keep the insects out.

“I have had that happen to me, and it’s no fun at all!” said Goodisman. “If there’s an opening, they will find it and get in.”

Studying Yellow Jacket Behavior

The Goodisman Research Group is studying yellow jackets to learn about highly social behavior.

“Yellow jackets are an example of some of the most extreme and impressive social behavior that you will see in any animal, even more so than in humans,” Goodisman said. “Their social structure is similar to honeybees in that they typically have a single queen, though not always. She produces a bunch of selfless workers that work until the colony succeeds.”

The researchers are also interested in studying multiyear super colonies. Nests usually last only one season, from May to December. But when temperatures are mild, a colony can survive the winter and become massive the next year.

“We have seen this in New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa. We’re starting to see it in Florida, South Alabama, and California — super colonies the size of a car,” Goodisman said.

These changes bring up other questions, such as, are yellow jackets facing the same environmental threats as honeybees?

“The short answer is we don’t know. There’s no one studying yellow jackets the same way they’re studying honeybees,” Goodisman said. “But not all of the things that affect honeybees will affect yellow jackets.”

Honeybees have been partially domesticated and bred for successful pollination, reduced aggression, and increased honey production. Unfortunately, domestication often has unwanted side effects. For example, domesticated honeybees may display fewer behavioral defenses against parasites than feral honeybees as a consequence of the domestication process.

“Yellow jackets don’t really have that. We don’t associate yellow jackets with having a lot of diseases. They still could be subjected to pesticides, but it’s not really known,” Goodisman said.

It’s hard to tell if there has been a decrease in the yellow jacket population based on the calls the Goodisman Research Group receives.

“There has been no systematic survey that I know of,” he said. “I think a widespread survey over many years would be interesting.”

Go (Yellow) Jackets!

Goodisman’s interest in insects began when he was a child in Syracuse, New York.

“There are yellow jackets in Syracuse and all across North America, from Mexico to Alaska,” he said — indeed, they can be found all across the northern hemisphere. They are one of the most common and successful social insects.

“They’re great fun, as you might imagine. They have a lot of personality,” he said. “It’s exhilarating when you’re trying to pull them out of the ground or get them out of the house.”

His undergraduate research at Cornell University included work with insects, and he did his doctoral thesis at the University of Georgia on fire ants.

While at UGA he saw fire ants in a tray in the lab, and he thought it was “so cool.” But his work with yellow jackets didn’t start until he did postdoctoral work in Australia.

“There was some interesting research being done on invasive yellow jackets in Australia and New Zealand. I’ve been working on yellow jackets well before I came to Georgia Tech.”

It was purely coincidental that Goodisman became a professor at Georgia Tech, home of the Yellow Jackets. But it still causes the occasional raised eyebrow when he tells people about his research.

“People do a double take and ask if I’m at Tech because of my yellow jacket research. They ask if I have a yellow jacket professorship, or if I’m the ‘Chair of Yellow Jacket Research.’ It’s always a fun conversation, especially with Georgia Tech alumni.”

Event Update For 2019-11-29


The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Event Update For 2019-11-28


The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Event Update For 2019-11-25


The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

2019-11-25 - Greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere reached yet another high in 2018:

2019-11-25 - Humanity must cut carbon emissions by 7.6 percent per year for the next 10 years to meet Paris Climate Agreement goals:

Quote: "The United Nations has warned world leaders must cut greenhouse gas emissions by a staggering 7.6 per cent every year for the next decade to meet the most ambitious goal of the Paris climate deal, or suffer the impacts of greater global warming."

Note: That's certainly not going to happen. In fact, emissions are increasing at a rate that is itself increasing. Ergo, the horrifying storms, fires, floods, droughts, crop failures, biosphere die-offs, etc that we're already experiencing will continue to get worse and they too will get worse at a rate that itself increases...

Local website OverHere is redefining the way people travel

Story 353327194

As South Africans plan for their December holidays, they can rely on new features in a completely free-to-use website developed by a Leon Schnell, Founder of is a website which makes use of map code systems which is redefining the way people travel. Mapcodes were developed in 2001 by Pieter Geelen and Harold Goddijn, soon after the GPS satellite signals were opened up for civilian use. It was decided to donate the mapcode system to the public domain in 2008. A mapcode represents a location, they were designed to be short, easy to recognise, remember and communicate. They are precise to a few meters, which is good enough for every-day use. They are free and can be  used by anyone, accurate to within around five meters

Schnell was first exposed to open source map codes in 2016, where he worked for TomTom South Africa as a B2B Marketing Manager promoting map licensing to corporate clients and government. “Although I immediately saw the value of mapcodes, I felt a lot more could be done within a South African context to increase public awareness and uptake of this incredible technology.He then set a personal goal to see if he could use what he knew about web development and JavaScript to create a functioning website that enabled users to generate and decode mapcodes. Schnell achieved that goal and launched OverHere earlier this year. By promoting mapcodes in South Africa, OverHere is already unique and even at an international level it stands out

A mapcode consists of two groups of letters and digits, separated by a dot. An example of a mapcode in Amsterdam is 49.4V. This shortcode is sufficient as long as it is clear what country or state the mapcode belongs in (in this case, The Netherlands). Schnell notes that business cards are not is big enough for the full address full physical address, and you can’t write down a location pin by hand inside your phonebook or share it telephonically thus Mapcodes come in and play a major role to help you to find your way.

OverHere’s map codes help you to find your way easily whether you are in the bushveld, beaches or urban areas. The latest upgrade of OverHere adds walking directions alongside driving directions, attracted attention at industry conferences, helped ensure that deliveries to mines run smoothly, and given all its diverse visitors an alternative to sharing their location accurately. In May 2019, it enabled voters to find polling stations.

Along the way, he had to refresh what he learnt previously from only one year of Computer Science at University, teaching myself JavaScript, HTML and CSS web development in a WordPress environment said Schnell. “I’d love to live in a future where we’re all swopping addresses as mapcodes. Ultimately, it’s about establishing a thriving integrated ecosystem where mapcodes don’t become seen as alternatives to addresses, but they become the addresses.



Good news campaign launches season 2 

Story 353327188

Brand agency Regency Global has launched the second season of their award-winning television and digital campaign #SAINC, which airs from this week on local channels, running until mid-2020.

The campaign aims to change the national conversation by highlighting and celebrating brands that are doing their part to create shared value for all South Africans.

Airing on News and Sport, SABC 2, Business Day TV and 20 local community channels, the campaign is the brainchild of South African filmmaker Shani Kay, who has had significant success showcasing the concept of profit-with-purpose. Having recently landed two Loerie rankings in her personal capacity, Kay is a  storyteller and advocate of driving business growth and social progress.

According to Kay, when brands start to look for their best stories, they unlock an understanding of the true value they can – and are – creating; enabling the virtuous circle of momentum to start driving our inclusive progress.

“As people we connect with people. When we meet human beings and learn about the challenges they have overcome and the successes they have achieved we start to care about these people. And so, when we learn about the brands that have helped them along the way, we start to care about them too. Authentic experiences translating into real and trusted stakeholder relationships. What could be better?!” comments Kay.

#SAINC’s confirmed line-up for season 2 includes: Mercedes-Benz, TFG, Shell, Fedgroup, Citadel, Volvo, Anglo American, DBSA, Kansai Plascon, ABB, Total, Oceana, SAB Foundation, Motus, Avbob, Tiger Brands, Bayport, Hisense and Mondelez.




AfricaCom 2019: Gender inequality continues to cost Africa billions of dollars each year

Story 353327183

According to 2016 report from the UN Development Programme, the average annual loss in Sub-Saharan Africa is $95bn since 2010 due to pervasive gender inequality in the continent’s economic activities. Deputy Chair of the board of directors for the South African Women in ICT Forum, Sonwabise Sebata reiterated this staggering statistic at this year’s AfricaCom event during her keynote address on investing in women and noted that one of the key sectors perpetuating this inequality is the tech industry.

AfricaCom is the biggest and most influential tech and telecoms event on the continent, and the only place to meet innovators driving Africa’s digital transformation. Sebata notes that “while the opportunity in Africa’s tech space is ample, to grow and enable the continent’s digital economy requires extensive collaboration and greater efforts in closing the gender representation and pay gap, she said. Definitive data shows that companies that are gender diverse actually outperform more homogeneous companies that don’t invest in women. It is a fact that companies that create enabling environments actually outperform their counterparts and their shares do better than companies” said Sebata.

Sebata outlined three ways to stop conversations and gatherings around gender diversity being just talks, rather producing tangible results. She says, firstly, there needs to be a mind-shift toward greater collaboration and realising that if you’re going at it alone, you’re not going far, she said. She adds that agreeing to move as one will promote the development of an enabling environment.

Secondly, she says there needs to be a greater focus on skills and workforce development in order to grow the pool of successful African female professionals who will employ the philosophy of “lift as you rise” in advocating for greater equality. Lastly, Sebata emphasised that cultural thinking should be embraced and employed to inform empirical thinking in enabling transformation.

Carol Bouwer, founder and CEO of Carol Bouwer Productions also joined the conversation stating that no country can obtain full equality and that investment in women still needs to be on the agenda.”I say to people all the time that I feel like, as a producer of programmes that are about affirming women, I feel that I have failed,” she said, referring to her efforts through Motswako. Motswako is a TV series which was aired on SABC 2. The episodes provided a platform for women to engage with each other with the aim of empowering, inspiring, and sharing in each other’s experiences.

“When I started, the idea was that we’re going to be on air for about five years, make a difference and ensure there’s equality – I was dreaming because the conversation hasn’t changed. Women are still susceptible to the “motherhood penalty”, perpetuating the stereotype that women are and need to be more involved in the home environment than men, said Bouwer, noting that, “Societal norms continue to trump legislature created to address the very stereotypes that we say we’re not happy with.”

Gender parity can also aid in achieving gender equality but is not the only solution. Koo Govender, CEO for Dentsu Aegis Network SA said “We plan to close the gender parity gap through the launch of our Female Foundry programme, which aims to empower female entrepreneurs with access to tools, training, connections and resources to build successful tech-enabled businesses. We still have a responsibility to our community to take an active stand in bridging the gap in gender parity” Bouwer encouraged women to start looking beyond the doors that remain shut and to start working as a collective in building their own enterprises. She suggests that women should raise their hands when opportunities are presented, and to support each other as the traditional “boy’s club” has done over the years, building a sense of unity”



When remembering is not enough: 16 Days of Activism becomes 365

This year, a seismic shift took place in South Africa. Marches, memorandums and hashtags finally mobilised government to declare violence against women a national crisis.

According to Casey Rousseau from 1st for Women Insurance, “we live in what our President has called “one of the most unsafe places in the world to be a woman”. A country where a woman is murdered every three hours and where 52 420 sexual offences were reported in just 365 days. The horrific events that occurred this year were the tipping point for South Africa. They also prompted us to re-evaluate our Foundation’s approach to fighting women abuse and launch a new preventative and response programme that takes into account and addresses the root cause of the epidemic.”

During the national 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign, 1st for Women Insurance will shine a light on women abuse by projecting 15 haunting tributes to victims of brutal murders, rapes and femicides on to very dark places – the actual locations of these crimes.

The first projection was filmed in Faerie Glen, Pretoria. It pays tribute to Chanelle Henning, a young mother who was murdered in November 2011. View the video here.

Future projections will pay tribute to victims including Hannah Cornelius who was raped and murdered near Stellenbosch, Clarissa Lindoor who was murdered in Stellenbosch, Courtney Pieters who was raped and murdered – her body found in Epping Industria, Cape Town and Janika Mello who was raped and murdered in Heinz Park, Cape Town, among others. On the 16th Day, 10 December 2019, the full length video will be projected onto the side of a well-known landmark in Johannesburg. The tribute will also be broadcast live on social media.

“Women abuse is a dark subject. It happens in the dark. When it’s not reported, it stays in the dark. That’s why we’re committed to bringing it into the light and keeping it there because it is only with constant illumination that the subject will remain in focus – not just for 16 days but for 365 days a year, every year,” says Rousseau.

Since 2005, the 1st for Women Foundation has contributed over R70 million to various organisations that focus on fighting women abuse.

“Although over 90 000 victims and survivors of abuse have been assisted by the Foundation, women abuse in South Africa is a burgeoning and complex issue that requires a mul
