Holloway praises fans after QPR win

first_imgQPR’s win moved them to the 50-point mark Ian Holloway praised QPR fans after the 4-1 victory over Norwich at Loftus Road.Rangers came from behind after Ryan Manning’s freak own goal, with Massimo Luongo, Matt Smith and Ebere Eze scoring before Manning headed in the fourth.“I think it’s down to the fans,” Holloway declared.”The fans are really appreciating the way the players are working and the skill they’ve got, and that bodes well for the future.“I want to thank the fans, because the atmosphere they’re creating for these young gentlemen is something sensational.“No matter whether they get it wrong or not, they still want the ball and they (the fans) can’t wait to see them do something.#The exciting Ebere Eze impressed again for QPR © Yui Mok/PA Wire“It’s very exciting, so thanks everybody from me – you’ve made us not worry about letting a goal in.”Norwich manager Daniel Farke said his team failed to deal with QPR’s long balls to Smith, but Rangers boss Holloway insisted they are about much more.Teenage forward Eze was a threat throughout and his goal was his second for the R’s.Holloway said: “We’ve got different skill sets. Matt is as good at doing what he does as anyone in our league and in the top league.“And we’ve got Ebere and what he’s got. He’s very exciting. I want him to create goals and score for us.“I’m very pleased with him. He’s a wonderfully balanced, intelligent boy and he wants to learn.“He glides and he floats. Ebere just beats you so easily. I want to encourage him to get in there and the team to give it to him.“We’ve got belief and why wouldn’t you have that with the skill we have on the pitch? I can see us getting stronger and stronger.”Luongo’s goal was his fourth in seven games and, coming straight after Rangers went behind, proved to be a pivotal moment in the game.Holloway said: “I thought the lads showed terrific skill and mentality to score as early as we did. It was a fantastic goal – a couple of little one-twos.“I gave Mass rest the other day. We look fantastic when he’s in there in that form. He’s starting to get prolific.”See also:QPR come from behind to crush NorwichFarke: Norwich failed to deal with QPR’s long-ball tacticsTwo more QPR youngsters in line for first-team chance at HullQPR v Norwich player ratingsPalace and Brighton monitor QPR’s EzeHolloway: QPR youngster Eze still has a lot to learn Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebookby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksRecommended for youAspireAbove.comRemember Pauley Perrette?

Black economic empowerment

first_imgBlack economic empowerment (BEE) is not simply a moral imperative to redress the inhumane policies of apartheid. It is a pragmatic growth strategy to realise the country’s full potential by bringing the black majority into the economic mainstream.Broad-based black economic empowerment, or B-BBEE, is a strategy to ensure all South Africans are able to meaningfully participate in the mainstream economy. (Image: Brand South Africa)In the decades before South Africa achieved democracy in 1994, the apartheid government systematically excluded African, Indian and coloured people from meaningful participation in the country’s economy.Realising the country’s full potential“Our country requires an economy that can meet the needs of all our economic citizens – our people and their enterprises – in a sustainable manner,” the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) says in its BEE strategy document.“This will only be possible if our economy builds on the full potential of all persons and communities across the length and breadth of this country.”Despite the many economic gains made in the country since 1994, the racial divide between rich and poor remains. As the DTI points out, such inequalities can have a profound effect on political stability:“Societies characterised by entrenched gender inequality or racially or ethnically defined wealth disparities are not likely to be socially and politically stable, particularly as economic growth can easily exacerbate these inequalities.”See Broad-based black economic empowerment on the DTI websiteTowards broad-based growthBlack economic empowerment – or broad-based black economic empowerment, as it is technically known – is not affirmative action, although employment equity forms part of it. Nor does it aim to take wealth from one group and give it to another. It is essentially a growth strategy, targeting the South African economy’s weakest point: inequality.“No economy can grow by excluding any part of its people, and an economy that is not growing cannot integrate all of its citizens in a meaningful way,” the DTI says.“As such, this strategy stresses a BEE process that is associated with growth, development and enterprise development, and not merely the redistribution of existing wealth.”Black economic empowerment is an important policy instrument aimed at broadening the economic base of the country – and through this, at stimulating further economic growth and creating employment.The strategy is broad-based, as shown in the name of the legislation: the Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment Act of 2003. This reflects the government’s approach, which is to “situate black economic empowerment within the context of a broader national empowerment strategy . focused on historically disadvantaged people, and particularly black people, women, youth, the disabled, and rural communities”.As the DTI notes, discrimination “is at its most severe when race coincides with gender and/or disability”.Download: The Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment Amendment Act of 2013BEE objectivesThrough its BEE policy, the government aims to achieve the following objectives:Empower more black people to own and manage enterprises. Enterprises are regarded as black-owned if 51% of the enterprise is owned by black people, and black people have substantial management control of the business.Achieve a substantial change in the racial composition of ownership and management structures and in the skilled occupations of existing and new enterprises.Promote access to finance for black economic empowerment.Empower rural and local communities by enabling their access to economic activities, land, infrastructure, ownership and skills.Promote human resource development of black people through, for example, mentorships, learnerships and internships.Increase the extent to which communities, workers, co-operatives and other collective enterprises own and manage existing and new enterprises, and increase their access to economic activities, infrastructure and skills.Ensure that black-owned enterprises benefit from the government’s preferential procurement policies.Assist in the development of the operational and financial capacity of BEE enterprises, especially small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) and black- owned enterprises.Increase the extent to which black women own and manage existing and new enterprises, and facilitate their access to economic activities, infrastructure and skills training.BEE codes and scorecardThe Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Codes of Good Practice emerged in 2007 to provide a standard framework for the measurement of BEE across all sectors of the economy.Download the codes of good practice from the Broad-based black economic empowerment page on the DTI websiteThe codes require that all entities operating in the South African economy make a contribution towards the objectives of BEE.The first phase of the codes encourages all entities, public and private, to implement proper BEE initiatives through the issuing of licences, concessions, sale of assets and preferential procurement.The second phase of the codes covers the seven components of the B-BBEE scorecard, namely: ownership; management control; employment equity; skills development; preferential procurement; enterprise development; and socioeconomic development (including industry-specific and corporate social investment initiatives).The B-BBEE Act of 2003 makes the codes binding on all state bodies and public companies, and the government is required to apply them when making economic decisions on:procurement,licensing and concessions,public-private partnerships, andthe sale of state-owned assets or businesses.Private companies must apply the codes if they want to do business with any government enterprise or organ of state – that is, to tender for business, apply for licences and concessions, enter into public-private partnerships, or buy state-owned assets.Companies are also encouraged to apply the codes in their interactions with one another, since preferential procurement will affect most private companies throughout the supply chain.Equity Equivalent Investment Programme for multinationalsThe codes of good practice allow foreign multinational companies that do business in South Africa some flexibility in how they structure their empowerment deals.In particular, the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice acknowledge that there may be multinationals whose global practices prevent them from complying with the ownership element of B-BBEE through the traditional sale of shares to black South Africans.In such cases, the codes allow for contributions in lieu of a direct sale of equity. These contributions, known as “equity equivalent” contributions, count towards the ownership element of B-BBEE.The value of these contributions may be measured against 25% of the value of a multinational’s South African operations, or against 4% of the total revenue from its South African operations annually over the period of continued measurement.Foreign multinationals can submit proposals for Equity Equivalent Programmes to the Department of Trade and Industry for approval by the Minister of Trade and Industry.Brand South Africa reporterSources: Department of Trade and Industry, the South Africa YearbookReviewed: 19 April 2013Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

South Africa’s first vegan magazine

first_imgMedia24 has launched South Africa’s first vegan focused magazine, The Vegan Life. Besides vegan friendly recipes, there are also informative articles on a wide range of relevant topics, from getting enough protein to buying cruelty-free beauty products.The Vegan Life launches on 30 January 2017. (Image: Screengrab via digital version of the magazine)Priya PitamberIn the newly launched magazine, The Vegan Life, numerous questions relating to the lifestyle are tastefully answered:How can a vegan include more protein in their diet?Do vegans need to take supplements?How to respond to frequently asked questions?What is safe and not safe for a vegan to eat?Those who follow a vegan diet exclude meat, poultry, eggs, dairy and other animal related products from their menus.“The huge shift towards veganism is really interesting,” said Marianne Erasmus, publisher of The Vegan Life.“It reflects a growing awareness of our impact on the world because the basis of veganism is not only about what is good for the individual, but also what is best for the planet.“We support the decision to live ethically and the activism behind it, and are very proud to launch the first vegan magazine in South Africa.”Thokozani Mashigo has been a vegan for just over a year, eating organic, plant-based food. “I adopted an alkaline-based diet which meant cutting out acid-based foods, of which animal-based foods are a part.”But his decision has not been without its difficulties.“Being a vegan,” he said, “especially a black vegan, posed many challenges for me, from explaining such a foreign concept to friends and family to finding suitable eateries that cater for vegans, to understanding the labelling on almost every single item of food I purchase.”The magazine got his attention, he said, by the cover because of the “beautifully shot food and the layout of the magazine”.“I immediately got the earthy, natural organic feeling that comes with being a vegan,” he said.He enjoyed that the magazine contained an abundance of information. “I loved the answers to the many questions one asks oneself when embarking on such an unpopular diet choice.”The list of vegan-friendly restaurants was also appreciated, as was the article about which supplements vegans could buy.“This magazine has helped me to understand veganism even better, to plan my meals and the ingredients, and it has helped me from a nutrition point of view.”Mashigo is also interested in trying out the dessert recipes.Animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or Peta, said 2016 would be #TheYearofVegan and it was that exactly, reads the magazine.“In the UK, where veganism is widely regarded as one of the fastest-growing lifestyle trends, the number of vegans rose by more than 360% over the past 10 years.“Here in South Africa, although we don’t have the exact statistics, veganism is clearly a path more and more people are choosing to take.”@JoziStyle @media24 @XXXSHEWOLFXXX @TheLifesWay Looks great!

Brand South Africa and UNISA host the South African Competitiveness Forum and the Pan-African University Dialogue

first_imgBrand South Africa and UNISA host the South African Competitiveness Forum and the Pan-African University DialogueJohannesburg, Wednesday 05th September 2018 – Brand South Africa and the University of South Africa (UNISA) have partnered to host the South African Competitiveness Forum (SACF) and the Pan-African University Dialogue in a two-day programme from 11th -12th September 2018.The conference will bring together academics, and industry representatives from South Africa and African markets such as Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, and Nigeria to provide expert input on key issues that impact positively and negatively on the competitiveness and reputation of the Pan-African brand, and Africa’s Nation Brands.Further to that, the unpacking of the identified theme – Interrogating the Pan-African Nation Brand: re- and de-constructing state capacity & the stories we tell to market the African brand reality, will form a golden thread for the dialogues.Speaking on the theme, Brand South Africa’s General Manager for Research, Dr Petrus De Kock said; “Brand South Africa understands that the reputation of the nation, nation brand, or in this case, the African continent, is shaped by a multitude of factors.  Due to divergent perceptions and public discourses on the condition of the African continent, the 2018 Pan-African Nation Brand Dialogue aims to interrogate two inter-related dimensions of the Africa’s Nation Brands through the subthemes – ‘State’ of the African Nation Brand that focuses on how governance capability impacts on reputation, as well as Telling and taking African Stories to Market that focuses on marketing in the African environment.”  Brand South Africa’s main objective as an award-winning organisation in research, aims to identify opportunities and lessons from contributions made by delegates which will be followed through in various project collaborations.“Brand South Africa will showcase its social segmentation model research that won the annual Southern African Market Research Association’s Best Research award, as well as research on the Development of the BRICS brand.  It has been a fruitful journey for the organisation since its first SACF in 2013 where Brand South Africa developed several interventions to address some of the issues outlined. In 2017 the Nation Brand University Dialogue was entitled – From Ubuntu Foreign Policy to a Democracy of Jazz – lessons from the Nation Brand University Dialogue and this year we eagerly envision collaborating with the continent,” adds Dr De Kock.The two-day programme will wrap up with a panel discussion and brainstorming with panellists, Prof K.M Makhitha, Mr Oyewole Simon Oginni, Dr Rasheed Akinyemi, Dr David Okello, Dr Joash Ntenga Moitui, Dr Timothy Esemu, Dr Kobby Mensah and Dr A.

‘Seng season opens statewide

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The harvest season for ginseng opened Sept. 1 and continues through the end of December on private land, and it’s important to note that the collecting of ginseng on any public land is prohibited. Harvested ginseng must be certified by the Ohio Division of Wildlife (ODOW) prior to export from the state to verify its weight and legal origin. Federal law requires that all state lots of ginseng be separated and totaled by the year. Because of this necessity, all uncertified ginseng must be weighed and accounted for each year.The export of American ginseng from the state of Ohio is regulated under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and ODNR. Ginseng is a slow-growing perennial herb that is highly valued in the United States and worldwide for its alleged medicinal traits. Due to its value and significant harvest pressure, regulation on both harvest and export are necessary to ensure survival of the species.Additional information about American ginseng and harvest regulations can be found in the publication Ohio’s Green Gold available on wildohio.gov.last_img read more
