Diesel-powered generators will be used to power all host stadiums.

Eskom will provide back-up power for the venues.The local division of BP has donated all diesel to run the stadium generators, the company announced in March.And, in accordance to Fifa requirements, South Africa’s National Treasury allocated more than R200-million (US$25.6-million) to buy the machines.The International Broadcast Centre, from which all World Cup footage will be transmitted to fans across the globe, has 16 diesel-powered generators, “guaranteeing uninterrupted viewing worldwide,” government said.Thanks to a series of energy-conservation campaigns, South Africa is on target to save between 2 000 and 3 500MW of electricity before the tournament starts, it added.Eskom all fired upAn independent audit conducted by the Korean Power Company (Kepco) has certified that Eskom is ready to meet demand for the duration of the tournament. Released in April, the Kepco report said the utility’s commitment to reliable power supply was “admirable and comparable to all countries that have held this prestigious event”.Eskom began World Cup preparations in 2007 by coordinating with government, municipalities, customers and the broader Southern African community to minimise potential risks to the electricity supply.“We are confident that Eskom will be able to deliver sufficient bulk electricity supplies, ensuring reliable power during the 2010 Fifa World Cup,” said Erica Johnson, Eskom’s Customer Network Business chief officer.It is working closely with municipalities, which are final suppliers of electricity to consumers, to ensure that the relay process from power station to stadium operates effectively at all times.“To achieve this objective, Eskom has embarked on a comprehensive programme involving our staff and external stakeholders to cover all facets of the event,” Johnson said.Eskom has also completed comprehensive maintenance work on its plants and infrastructure, said Johnson, and has secured additional water and primary energy fuels as contingency measures.“These measures give us confidence that we can provide reliable supply during the games. In planning for any eventuality, we aim to reduce restoration time to customers by having maintenance teams on standby to attend to any localised power outage, such as electrical trips that may occur on the distribution network.”South Africa’s electrical supply has mostly been consistent over the last year, Eskom said. There have been no serious power outages since May 2008.The previous year, however, was not as successful due to rolling blackouts across the country caused by Eskom’s inability to meet the rising demand for power. Although this has been addressed, the utility says the country’s energy reserve margin is still not as wide as it should be.A looming strike at Eskom, which could also potentially threaten security of power supply, has been called off after the utility was granted an urgent court interdict preventing trade unions and their members from participating in industrial action.“Eskom is an essential service and employees of an organisation classified as such are prohibited from taking part in industrial action. Engaging in any such action would be considered unlawful,” it said in a statement.last_img read more

SA police in partnership to fight crime

first_img8 August 2013 Leaders from South Africa’s Institute for Security Studies, Business against Crime South Africa, AgriSA and the South African Banking Risk Information Centre have pledged their support to the country’s police service in the fight against crime. “We needed to interact with these important partners who have helped us in our crime reduction programmes,” Mthethwa said in Pretoria on Tuesday. “As the ministry, we move from a premise that it is only through strong partnerships that we can create safer environments, which enable economic development, growth and attract investments.” The ministry maintains ongoing partnerships with different stakeholders – from business, researchers, academics, community policing forums and labour unions to NGOs who give insights which have assisted in policy formulations and practical programmes. “In fact, our approach as government is not premised along an impression that we are experts who know better; rather, we see them as equal partners in helping us address the challenge confronting us, which is to ensure that South Africans are and feel safe,” he said. “In our efforts of creating a police service that is professional, accountable, transparent and responsive, we also shared and discussed the Green Paper on Policing.” The meeting also covered the challenges that the South African Police Service is currently grappling with, including corruption and poor conduct of police officers. Mthethwa said it should not be a government-only responsibility to tackle crime – and such partnerships have enabled police management to better grasp and understand some of the key issues faced by police. “We are under no illusion that there are quick fix solutions to policing challenges in South Africa,” he said. “We do believe that over the last year, we have begun to put in place processes that are not only yielding some successes, but will also become the building blocks for the police service we envisage.” The minister and the partners agreed to cement these engagements through ongoing interactions, which will include a development of a practical programme with clear time frames, sharing of information and best practices.

Avian influenza in southern Indiana not affecting grocery prices

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Avian influenza that led to the culling of 414,000 turkeys and chickens at southern Indiana commercial poultry farms is having little effect on prices of turkey and eggs at grocery stores, a Purdue University agricultural economist says.Estimates of quarterly prices show changes by plus or minus 1%, which are within fluctuations normally seen in these markets, Philip Paarlberg said.“With these price changes there will be very little impact on consumers,” he said. “At least that is how it stands now.”Some countries have restricted imports of poultry and poultry products following the Jan. 15 announcement of confirmation that highly pathogenic avian influenza infected a southern Indiana poultry flock. Canada has recognized the established control zones in accordance with the zoning agreement with the United States. Mexico, Japan and Cuba have restricted Indiana poultry products while the European Union has U.S. county-level restrictions. South Korea has imposed restrictions on the entire United States.Those restrictions have tended to offset the loss of production and to lower prices – ever so slightly — in the U.S. because of the decreased demand for exports.Turkey prices have been largely unaffected because the 258,000 birds destroyed represent only about 0.1% of the turkeys produced nationally. The 156,000 laying hens that were culled also represent a very small fraction of layers raised nationally.Any additional incidents of avian influenza H7N8, the strain that led to the culling, could result in greater price fluctuations depending on conditions such as a significant disruption of supplies or further declines in poultry exports.While the financial impact on the total poultry industry from the situation in Dubois County is small, Paarlberg said the incident will have a major impact on the farms involved and the community, including the disruption of producers’ livelihoods and any temporary reduction in jobs of workers.“So the impact is primarily local,” he said.Dubois County is Indiana’s largest turkey-producing county, growing 1.4 million birds annually. Indiana ranks fourth in the nation in turkey production.Turkeys at 10 sites infected with H7N8 avian influenza were destroyed. Besides the one flock with highly pathogenic avian influenza, eight flocks had low pathogenic avian influenza, and testing of one other flock was continuing.The laying hens were not infected with H7N8 but were culled because the laying facility was near an infected barn of turkeys and were considered at risk of contracting the virus.The Indiana Board of Animal Health said this week that testing will continue for several more weeks in the area to ensure than no more H7N8 strain remains.The Centers for Disease Control considers the risk of illness to humans from the strain to be very low. It says properly cooked and handled poultry is not a source of infection for avian influenza viruses.last_img read more

Kebob this summer!

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I love kebobs! They come in all sorts of flavors, colors and textures to tantalize anyone’s taste buds. Kebobs have infiltrated American cuisine. They come the traditional way like shish kebobs but also come in appetizers, fruit, veggies, dessert and everything in between. On our recent trip along the California coastline we stopped at a restaurant in Pismo Beach at the Sea Venture hotel. I enjoyed a small plate of Pismettes. Pismettes were chicken, shrimp, beef filet and vegetable kabobs or skewers dramatically served with a trio of sauces. They were awesome and just the perfect portion!The history of shish kebob originates from the Turkish words, skewer and meat. They were the perfect solution for the nomadic tribes and invading warriors in Turkey where they would eat various cuts of meat marinated, speared with swords and roasted over the open fire. Shish kebobs are traditionally just like their history, marinated meat and vegetables. Today we put them on skewers instead of a sword. Kebobs have adapted into other cultures. Skewers of all meat called satay or sate can be found in Thai, Indonesian and Malaysian food, which are served with dipping sauces. Skewers of meat or poultry can be found in Japan as yakitori, France as brochettes and in Portugal as espetadas.Kebobs are great for parties. They have a very dramatic presentation and can also help with portion control.It can also be fun to make your own Edible Arrangements, which are decorative fruit kabobs. Cut fruit and firm cookies/cake into shapes of hearts, stars and stick them in anything from a pumpkin, small melon to a pineapple. Kid-friendly kabobs turn bananas, grapes, strawberries and bananas into Grinches, snowmen and caterpillars. I’ve even seen Peep kebobs!Over or undercooked meat and raw veggies are just not cool. Here are a few tips for traditional shish kebobs this grilling season.1. Cut up your protein and veggies/fruit in similar, bite sized pieces.2. Throw the pieces in a baggie with marinade for at least two hours or overnight. Doing this the night before would be perfect for working families.3. No time to marinate, just sprinkle with your favorite spices at least 30 minutes ahead of grilling while you are prepping the grill.4. Want to make a pretty perfect kebob? Parboil your veggies/fruit before spearing them alternately with your meat on the skewers.5. Make your kebobs loosely so they will get cooked thoroughly.6. No time to parboil…make your kebobs all of the same ingredient. Then you can grill each kebob with perfection!7. If ingredients are the type to spin on the skewer, try using 2 wooden skewers to keep food in place. It makes it much easier to turn and you won’t end up with a burnt and raw side.8. Keep food safety in mind. Marinate your meats, poultry and seafood in the fridge. Cooking all meats to a safe temperature of 145 degrees for beef, pork and lamb, 165 degrees for poultry, and fish at 145 degrees or until opaque. Let them rest a few minutes before enjoying.This summer add some pizzazz into your next gathering. Add kebobs! Try red, white and blue kebobs for the upcoming July 4th holiday. Make it a bobfest! Eat Well and healthyShelly Citrus Marinated Beef and Fruit Kabobs beefitswhatsfordinner.com1 pound beef Top Sirloin Steak Boneless, cut 1 inch thick1 medium orange1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves1 tablespoon smoked paprika1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)4 cups cubed mango, watermelon, peaches and/or plumschopped fresh cilantro leaves (optional) Grate peel & squeeze 2 tablespoons juice from orange; reserve juice.

Concerns with continuous soybeans in 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest With the likelihood of 2018 farm economics again favoring soybean production, soybeans being planted after soybeans could be on the rise this spring.With consecutive years of soybean production, yield potential declines and the potential need for additional inputs and precautions increases.“Agronomically, we never like to see beans after beans, but when it gets into your back pocket sometimes we have to do some things differently,” said Mike Earley, Seed Consultants, Inc. agronomist. “We need to make sure to not plant the same variety in the same field back to back. If we get into continuous beans for multiple years we need to do a lot more scouting and chances are we are going to need some fungicide applications because of a lot more disease pressure in the fields.”In addition to increased potential for soybean issues including Phytophthora, white mold and frogeye leaf spot, more soybeans could also mean more yield loss to soybean cyst nematode (SCN). The silent robber of soybean yields has been on the rise and has been found in over 60% of Ohio soybean fields, according to Ohio State University Extension. SCN yield losses of 25% to 50% can take place with no above ground symptoms.Of course, the easiest way to combat SCN is crop rotation, but if that is not an option then variety selection becomes increasingly important.“Almost all of the soybean varieties sold to farmers in Ohio are labeled ‘Resistant to SCN,’ ‘Resistant to SCN Race 3’ or something similar. Most of the time, a variety labeled as SCN-resistant got its resistance from an ancestral soybean line called PI (Plant Introduction) 88788,” wrote Anne Dorrance, Laura Lindsey, Terry Niblack, and Chris Taylor with Ohio State University Extension in the CORN Newsletter. “This source of resistance was considered broad-spectrum, highly durable, and relatively easy to transfer into the new high-yielding varieties via traditional breeding practices, and that’s why most of our soybean varieties have this resistance. Based on data from hundreds of trials in locations throughout the Midwest, varieties that have this source of resistance will yield higher than similar varieties with no resistance even when SCN populations are low.”Testing for SCN also becomes increasingly important in fields of soybeans planted after soybeans. There are numerous labs that measure the SCN populations, including OSU’s own C. Wayne Ellett Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic. The latest fact sheet has contact information for each of these labs and management practices can be found at http://ohioline.osu.edu/ac-fact/pdf/0039.pdf.last_img read more

Last.fm Introduces a Subscription Fee For Streaming Music Via Its Mobile Apps

first_imgTags:#music#web The personalized music streaming company Last.fm has announced that its radio service will become an ad-free, subscriber-only feature on iPhones and Androids, starting February 15.Last.fm Radio will remain free via its website and desktop app as well as for U.S. and U.K. users of Xbox Live and Windows Mobile 7 phones.Last.fm Radio offers a personalized station, playing full song tracks based on users’ preferences. Currently, that streaming service is free in the U.S. and U.K. via an ad-supported app.In explaining the decision to move to a subscription-based model, Last.fm says that “In other markets and on emerging mobile and home entertainment devices, it is not practical for us to deliver an ad supported radio experience, but instead, we will migrate to what we believe is the highest quality, lowest cost ad-free music service in the world.”The change brings Last.fm in line with many other music services that charge you to listen to music via your mobile devices.

Who Needs Cable? 3 iPad Apps That Glue Me To My TV

first_imgThe Internet may be changing TV, but it is nowhere close to completely disrupting it.Why’s that? In a word, content.Web videos can rack up millions of views (and millions of dollars), but the Web isn’t yet giving us content as compelling as Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad. Netflix, Hulu and YouTube are all trying to change that by investing in TV-quality programming for the Internet. But there’s another problem: the user experience. Even the best Internet videos have to be clicked, queued, buffered and occasionally refreshed. You can’t just sit down and watch. Fortunately, that’s starting to change. I don’t have a subscription to cable TV, nor have I had the slightest desire for one. When I sit down in front my TV, it’s with an iPad and Apple remote, which controls my Apple TV set top box. I stream shows from all the usual suspects: Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon. But lately, a handful of innovative social video apps have been nabbing more and more of my attention. ShowyouShowyou has long occupied a spot in the top row of my iPad’s “Entertainment” folder, and it’s only gotten better since I first installed it. The app borrows heavily from the Flipboard concept, but instead of articles and blog posts, it curates personalized video clips based on my social connections and interests I’ve explicitly declared by adding channels. I can also follow individual friends on Showyou, independently of whatever relationship I may (or may not) have with them on Twitter or Facebook. In that sense, Showyou is a bit of a social network in its own right. There’s a ton of content in Showyou. Video clips come from legacy brands like ABC News and the New York Times alongside Web sources like Reddit, Pitchfork, The Verge and Gawker. Each category of channels (Comedy, Tech, News, Music, etc) lists at least a dozen sources, each of which can be added as a channel. If you actively follow channels on YouTube, you can plug your Google account into Showyou and include those videos as well. Combine all of this formal curation with feeds of videos shared by Facebook and Twitter friends, and you’ve got an enormous amount of personalized, highly relevant video content. You can break them down by channel or social network or you can view everything in one huge mega-channel. Factor in continuous playback and you’ll be sitting in front of your TV for awhile. VodioLike ShowYou, Vodio merges self-declared interests with socially fueled recommendations. Its channels are far less granular (they’re more like general categories rather than feeds from individual content providers). Its design is decidedly simpler, with a big rotating carousel of video channels and minimal controls. Some channels are more useful than others. The Music channel pulls in videos from a range of sources, and seems to presume that I’m interested in UK boy band One Direction. By contrast, other social video apps let you subscribe to specific music publications, labels and artists, which obviously results in a more personally relevant selection of videos. News, on the other hand, is great on Vodio. The app pulls news clips from outlets like CNN, Al Jazeera and ABC, auto-playing them back-to-back to create a sort of multi-sourced, commercial-free news broadcast. The continuous playback makes it feel like watching a single news channel, but with fewer talking heads and more variety. FrequencyFrequency is awesome. It’s pretty much the same concept as the other apps – plug in your social networks and select your favorite Web video content channels – but with an interface that more deliberately mimics the experience of watching TV. Tapping each channel icon is akin to “changing the channel” on a television, jumping from Reddit to Ars Technica, from Gawker to Lifehacker. Whatever you’re into. Like ShowYou and Vodio, Frequency pulls in the videos your friends are sharing on Facebook and Twitter. I can’t overstate how much more effective it is to peruse these videos in this context than it is to scroll through the noise of tweets and status updates to find them. And like the other apps, Frequency plays videos continuously back-to-back. This turns watching Web video from a hunt-and-tap experience to a lean-back and don’t-make-any-decisions experience.Kind of like TV. Lead photo by Gustavo Devito. 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Related Posts john paul titlowcenter_img Tags:#iPad#social video#television#YouTube 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more
