Strong backing for emerging farmers

first_img14 April 2010Emerging farmers from South Africa’s Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal provinces are set to receive a R100-million boost in the form of tractors from the government.In a pre-budget briefing in Cape Town this week, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson said the first consignment of the department’s mechanisation programme would be in support of the Masibuyele Emasimini, a food production intensification programme.The mechanisation programme will be rolled out in other provinces and supported by investments of R50-million per province over the next three years.Private sector supportJoemat-Pettersson said the department had also received offers from a number of multinational companies to help develop smallholders, while guaranteeing them access to international markets.The US supermarket Walmart had approached the department to develop a mentorship programme and market access model for their outlets.Joemat-Pettersson also commended Old Mutual’s pledge to make available R10-million to bolster subsistence and smallholder enterprises, and Nedbank’s creation of a R6-billion agricultural fund, which would invest half its corpus in South African farming projects in areas ranging from crop production, animals, skills and marketing.Nedbank had emphasised that they wanted to partner with the department both locally and abroad, she said, while pointing out that private-public partnerships would take the country a “long way” in its developing farming.Land reform, mentorshipThe department would also conduct an audit on land reform projects and had been allocated R577.6-million through the Comprehensive Agricultural Support Programme, which provides funding for training and services such as information technology support.“We are not just throwing money at failed projects. We have assessed the affected projects and determined projects that can be rescued,” said Joemat-Pettersson.She said the department planned to conduct an audit of its mentorship and equity scheme programmes, as these had not worked, despite the investment of millions to bridge skills. The department was also in consultation with the Department of Higher Education about opening agricultural colleges to boost learning facilities and opportunities.Equity sharing, joint venturesThe department would also investigate and implement equity sharing schemes that would involve equal ownership between land reform beneficiaries and white commercial farmers.Joemat-Pettersson explained that the plan was for commercial farmers to engage in joint ventures with land reform beneficiaries, who were supported by government.She said the land would not be a part of the shareholding investment, and that the government would recapitalise the equity portion, through its development finance organisations such as the Industrial Development Corporation and the Land Bank.“When the business is running profitably, the commercial farmers can then sell shares and exit the arrangement,” she said.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Flipboard Gets Back To Its Web Roots

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos owen thomas Related Posts Tags:#Flipboard#iPad#iPhone#Mike McCue#news apps#news readers#Responsive Design A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Auditcenter_img Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Mike McCue was a pioneer of the modern Web, a veteran of browser maker Netscape Communications. So it was something of a shock in 2010 when he came out with Flipboard, a news-reading app that bypassed the Web altogether in favor of the then-new iPad.“Imagine  if the Web was washed away and we needed to build a new one from scratch,” McCue told ReadWrite founder Richard MacManus at the time, explaining the design philosophy that led Flipboard to build an app—not a website—to help people find and organize the headlines their friends and contacts were sharing online.See also How Flipboard Was CreatedNow he’s come full circle. Today, Flipboard is introducing a Web version of its service, in part to emphasize the 2.5 million “magazines”—collections of links on a specific topic, laid out in the app’s distinctively appealing visual style—that users and publishers have created since that feature’s launch in March.McCue credits the introduction of magazines with helping Flipboard grow from 50 million users to 75 million users in the past few months, though it’s not clear how much of that growth is attributable to the link collections and how much is due simply to the service’s growing popularity and an expanding market of smartphone users.Mobile First, Web LastFlipboard is not the first startup to begin on mobile and then embrace the Web. Foursquare, Instagram, and Path have all made parts of their services available to Web users.But they all used the constraints of mobile devices to establish niches before they ventured onto the Web, where they faced established competitors. It’s far from clear that any of them would have succeeded had they launched on the Web. (Indeed, before Instagram’s creation, its founders first made a Web-based check-in service called Burbn that was going nowhere fast.)Flipboard toyed with the idea of launching on the Web first, McCue told ReadWrite. But “it was starting to feel like just another website,” he said, and he worried that the user-interface ideas Flipboard was experimenting with—like flipping pages by swiping across a screen—would not “resonate” with desktop PC users.Today’s Web version of Flipboard embraces both its mobile heritage and the lingering advantages of desktop websites. Like Polar, an innovative polling app whose design scales up from its mobile experience rather than down from the desktop, Flipboard makes use of the presence of a keyboard. You can flip pages with left and right arrow keys, for example.See also Why Your App Design Doesn’t Have To Be All ThumbsMobile design concepts are far more familiar to desktop users now than they were three years ago, so it’s far less jarring to see a website like Flipboard’s.For Magazine Makers The biggest beneficiary of Flipboard’s move to the desktop Web may be the people and companies creating magazines. While tablets and smartphones are great for reading, they’re far less handy for publishing.“Right now, you can only add an item to a magazine one item at a time,” McCue pointed out, as an example of the mobile interface’s inherent limitations. Magazine creators will soon be able to add multiple items at once, from automated feeds or search queries.But Flipboard’s magazines will also benefit from the lush display possible on large monitors.“In the long run, I hope this will be the first step to rethinking what a website is,” said McCue.last_img read more

Telangana Government to accelerate Hyderabad’ IT as a Wi-Fi enabled city

first_imgHow would it be if you could use a Wi-Fi while buying your vegetables or walking on the street? Well, this is what the Telangana Government has proposed recently. In a bid to make Hyderabad India’s major IT hub, a Wi-Fi enabled city, the government is holding talks with various telecom service providers.With a population of around 12 million, the service will enhance their growth and provide a full time access to the digital world.According to newspaper reports, Harpreet Singh, secretary of the information technology and communications department, has informed Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao that 90 per cent of the turnover of the IT sector was coming from Hyderabad, with a total turnover of 62,293 crore. The Telangana government confirmed a few weeks later that several firms were coming forward to provide 4G technology for making entire Hyderabad a Wi-Fi enabled city.The officials have been asked to draft strategies involving international consultants and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation, Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority, Hyderabad Metro Water Supply and Sewerage Board, Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation, revenue, electricity, Hyderabad Metro Rail and sports departments, as quoted by a government statement.While plans to make Hyderabad a Wi-Fi enabled city are still on, concerns regarding the access and identification of users is being discussed as an issue.Free Wi-Fi hotspots can be a risk to the use of data online and risks accessing. Interpol’s cyber-crime centre has warned that data theft over Wi-Fi networks is a major issue and has taken a toll in the recent times. Since, there will be no official registration or tracking, identification of users will be a big concern during the period. advertisementThe security apparatus and logs of users who accessed the Internet will also be an important issue since the IT Act says anyone who provides Internet access to another person or group is mandated to maintain logs. However it is to be seen, how the government maintains its niche over IT development and maintain the threats arising.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Crystal Palace boss Hodgson upset for crocked Souareby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCrystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson was upset for Pape Souare after an injury setback in their FA Cup win over Grimsby.Hodgson hopes the injury isn’t serious.He said, “I’m very disappointed for him. I’ve worked with him for over a year and he’s done so well to get back from a horrendous injury, and he’s been out there every day in training trying his very best to get better and show me that he’s a good player. Unfortunately, he’s found a guy like Patrick van Aanholt in front of him.“Today was the day that I was hoping to get him on the field of play and show what he shows us in training and come off the field victorious and happy. To come off injured was a bitter blow, and it was an unfortunate thing where he was bowled over, fell awkwardly and picked up a shoulder injury. I can only hope that he can recover quickly, but it’s not a minor injury; it could keep him out for weeks.” last_img read more

Trump threatens to shut down border with Mexico next week

first_imgPalm Beach: Threatening drastic action against Mexico, President Donald Trump declared he is likely to shut down America’s southern border next week unless Mexican authorities immediately halt all illegal immigration. Such a severe move could hit the economies of both countries, but the president emphasised, “I am not kidding around.” “It could mean all trade” with Mexico, Trump said when questioned Friday by reporters in Florida. “We will close it for a long time.” Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USTrump has been promising for more than two years to build a long, impenetrable wall along the border to stop illegal immigration, though Congress has been reluctant to provide the money he needs. In the meantime, he has repeatedly threatened to close the border, but this time, with a new surge of migrants heading north, he gave a definite timetable. A substantial closure could have an especially heavy impact on cross-border communities from San Diego to South Texas, as well as supermarkets that sell Mexican produce, factories that rely on imported parts, and other businesses across the US. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsThe US and Mexico trade about USD 1.7 billion in goods daily, according to the US Chamber of Commerce, which said closing the border would be “an unmitigated economic debacle” that would threaten 5 million American jobs. Trump tweeted Friday morning, “If Mexico doesn’t immediately stop ALL illegal immigration coming into the United States through our Southern Border, I will be CLOSING the Border, or large sections of the Border, next week.” He didn’t qualify his threat with “or large sections,” stating: “There is a very good likelihood I’ll be closing the border next week, and that is just fine with me.” He said several times that it would be “so easy” for Mexican authorities to stop immigrants passing through their country and trying to enter the US illegally, “but they just take our money and ‘talk.'” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen suggested Trump was referring to the ongoing surge of mostly Central American families heading north through Mexico. Many people who cross the border illegally ultimately request asylum under US law, which does not require asylum seekers to enter at an official crossing. Short of a widespread shutdown, Nielsen said the US might close designated ports of entry to re-deploy staff to help process parents and children. Ports of entry are official crossing points that are used by residents and commercial vehicles. “If we have to close ports to take care of all of the numbers who are coming, we will do that,” Nielsen said. “So it’s on the table, but what we’re doing is a very structured process based on operational needs.” The White House did not immediately respond to questions about whether Trump’s possible action would apply to air travel. Trump’s latest declaration came after Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said his country was doing its part to fight migrant smuggling. Criminal networks charge thousands of dollars a person to move migrants through Mexico, increasingly in large groups toward remote sections of the border.last_img read more

Gambhir says possess only one voter ID hits back at AAP

first_imgNew Delhi: Hitting back at the AAP, cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir Sunday asserted that he possessed only one voter identity card, adding that the ruling party in Delhi was making baseless allegations against him as it did not have any vision for the people. Gambhir is fighting against AAP’s Atishi from the East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency this general elections. “I have only one voter ID card from Rajender Nagar. I used to live with my maternal grandparents as a child at Ramjas Road (in Karolbagh), but I never voted from or applied for any voter identity card from there,” he told PTI. The BJP candidate was responding to Atishi’s claim that he had two voter identity cards from Rajender Nagar and Karolbagh constituencies. He alleged the AAP candidate was making allegations against him as she had nothing to talk about with voters during campaigning. “When you have no vision for the people or nothing else to talk about, you make allegations like these,” Gambhir said. Meanwhile, a Delhi court had on Friday decided to hear Atishi’s criminal complaint against Gambhir in this regard on May 1. The AAP candidate had filed the complaint against Gambhir for allegedly enrolling as a voter in more than one constituency in violation the Representation of the People Act(RPA). She had also raised objection over the nomination papers filed by the former cricketer which were rejected by the returning officer of the polls. Gambhir said he believed in “positive politics” and would campaign with a vision to make East Delhi one of the best Lok Sabha constituencies in Delhi, and avoid indulging in blame game with his opponents in the polls. Congress has fielded former Delhi minister Arvinder Singh Lovely from the seat.last_img read more
