Ancelotti MUST win Champions League to keep Real Madrid job, claims Spanish football expert

first_imgtalkSPORT’s Spanish football expert Graham Hunter claims Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti MUST win the Champions League this season if he wants to keep his job.The Italian has been linked with a move to Manchester City in the summer, should the club decide to dispense with Manuel Pellegrini’s services.Real Madrid will have to overturn a 2-1 deficit in their semi-final against Juventus, and Hunter believes the match at the Bernabeu will be critical.“The tradition at Real Madrid is that, if you win the Champions League, you get sacked. Just look at Vincente del Bosque and Jupp Heynckes.“I’m a Carlo Ancelotti defender but he hasn’t helped himself, he should have made better decisions.“Asier Illarramendi, Javier Hernandez and Jese should have played more regularly. Keylor Navas should have tested Iker Casillas more regularly as well. Ancelotti’s lack of rotation will count against him.“If they don’t win against Juventus, and subsequently win the final, it’s a little hard to understand how Ancelotti will survive.“That’s the way Florentino Perez is. If they win against Juventus, there is going to be a El Clasico final.“If you win a Clasico final, it’s unprecedented, and maybe Ancelotti stays.”last_img read more

Research and job creation focus at agro-processing gathering

first_imgA variety of speakers shared their experiences in the sector at a two-day Technology and Human Research for Industry (THRIP) agro-processing symposium. Some highlighted how government funding helped their businesses grow.Speakers at the Technology and Human Research for Industry agro-processing symposium on 24 and 25 October 2017 include Sammy Phalane, Dr Yonela Njisane, Bongani Ndimba, Elisabeth Goyvaerts and Luvuyo Simakuhle. (Image: Melissa Javan)Melissa JavanMore than 450 villages are producing and selling nuts to the company Everpix, an African Oil partner. This company is a beneficiary of the Department of Trade and Industry’s Technology and Human Research for Industry (THRIP) funding programmes.At a THRIP agro-processing symposium, Elisabeth Goyvaerts, founder of Everpix, spoke about how the company had grown with the help of the department.The two-day symposium was held on 24 and 25 October 2017. Its aim was to create a conducive environment in which government-funded research was showcased to the relevant industries for possible exploitation and industrialisation, as well as to discuss critical issues in the agriculture and agro-processing value chain.A highlight was 12-year-old Zaria Rule explaining how she conducted research on her dog by using Rooibos tea to treat his diabetes condition.Another highlight was Luvuyo Simekuhle of Woodlands Dairy, which was supplied by 75 commercial farmers. The company is in Humansdorp and supplies not only milk but milk powder.Creating sustainable jobsSipho Zikode, the deputy director-general responsible for special economic zones and economic transformation in the Department of Trade and Industry, said programmes such as THRIP could be used to strengthen public-private partnership (PPP) initiatives.“As you know, THRIP brings together the government, industries, universities and science councils focusing on innovation, technology and scientific development.“This is what we call a PPP initiative, and with this THRIP symposium we are targeting the agro-processing sector, which is one of our Industrial Policy priority sectors that we have to develop and promote for reasons of beneficiating our produce and ensuring that we create sustainable jobs in South Africa,” said Zikode.“We also need to ensure we bring in and support other science and innovation institutions, universities, technical colleges and students in the rural and poor areas.”EverpixIn 2008, Goyvaerts began researching the resources impoverished communities had, and how to use these to benefit those communities, such as the marula tree.In 2010, she started oil pressing and by November 2011 the company was making two tons of oil in Pietermaritzburg.Applying for funding through the department in 2012 was “the best thing that happened to me”. After getting the money in 2013, she was able to buy an automatic stirring pot.“I did more than a ton of oil after getting the [department’s] pre-payments [funding money].”In 2013, a customer paid 50% upfront so that she could create refined oil. Although it was her first foray into refined oil, she sold 330kg of it.Shortly after receiving the funding, she got an order from the US worth R1-million. “I didn’t have premises, so everybody was helping out. I would store here and there, not paying for storage.”She said that sustaining a business was a path that could not be done alone. “We got help from everyone.” The company also invested heavily in the villages from which it bought the raw resources.Other beneficiariesStudents at the University of Fort Hare also received funding from the department for their research into animal welfare and meat science.Dr Yonela Njisane, one of the students, spoke about the effects stress had on animals. “Stress affects the pH in the animal. That is the darkness in the meat colour.”One of the things that caused stress in animals was travelling long distances.The productivity of an animal could also affect your production, she said. A way to measure whether an animal was stressed or had low production levels was to monitor its behaviour.Source: Department of Trade and IndustryWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

China planning massive innovation for state-operated companies

first_imgThe Ultimate Checklist on Ways to Prevent IoT D… 5 Industries Destined for Technological Disruption David Curry Related Posts Electronic Design is Utilizing AI-Enabled Solu…center_img Tags:#China#communist party#innovation#Internet of Things#IoT#IT How IoT Will Transform Cold Chain Logistics For… China’s Communist Party has launched one of the most ambitious private equity funds, focused on restructuring and reforming the party’s State-owned enterprises (SOE).The party is looking to spend 350 billion yuan ($52.5 billion) on the reform project, which will be used to pay for mergers, acquisitions, industrial upgrades, and “innovation.”See Also: Worn in China: Chinese wearable shipments soar in 2016China’s government owns most of the critical infrastructure in the country, like mobile networks, electricity, and utilities. Some of the SOEs are public, but all of the voting shares are kept by the party.The intention of the reforms is to make the SOEs more efficient and push companies founded in China onto the world stage. In the past few years, reports have shown gross negligence from the Communist Party’s SOE, which has led to Xi Jinping’s government pushing the reforms. The lack of world stage presence from apps and companies is also worrying for China, especially as the country starts to slow down.Take Tencent’s WeChat, a ubiquitous service in China that provides a messenger, payment, and gaming platform all in one app, but has hardly any market control outside of its home country.Alibaba’s Tmall is another example of China’s rather exclusive style, providing services tailored to the Chinese market that don’t work (or don’t want to work) in other countries.How welcome will it be elsewhere?China might not find a warm reception outside its borders, considering Western services like Facebook and Google have been forced out the country by the Communist Party. That said, Chinese developers are starting to show they can meld with other cultures, the most recent example being the new Musical.ly app.Making state enterprises more efficient may improve the bottom line for the Chinese party, giving them more money to spend on innovative projects like a Mars mission and satellite launches. The party may also redistribute it into the private sector, providing a larger cushion for Chinese entrepreneurs with global ambitions.last_img read more

TCEM criticised on Grand Turk dump management residents calls on Government to

first_img Wheeland MP says ‘Enough is enough’; Official statement on Landfill fire Burning rubber at Provo Landfill; fire again blamed on arson… again Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp TCI: TCEM contract not renewed, Gov’t back in charge of dump sites Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, March 14, 2017 – Grand Turk – A Grand Turk resident says the company hired to manage the dump is doing a terrible job and he believes it is causing the mosquito problem which led to the recent outbreak of Dengue Fever at HJ Robinson High School.In a photo sent to Magnetic Media, we can see a high mound of tires stacked at the Grand Turk dump, dry dusty grounds and a few stray dogs milling about – none of this should be happening according to the contract arranged between TCIG and Turks and Caicos Environmental Management or TCEM.Since 2012, TCEM was given the exclusive waste management contract for the dumps in Provo and Grand Turk; the country pays $1.5 million per year for them to do this and still a recent photo of Grand Turk and a recent visit to the Providenciales site revealed several breaches.There is no tire shredder, no security guard, dry grounds so there is dust flying when TCEM is mandated to keep the area water soaked and no perimeter fencing to keep animals out of the dumps.   Magnetic Media stopped by the Provo office of TCEM to get comment, days later there is still no explanation from the company on why it has faltered on its agreement.   A media report late last year exposed these vexing issues and TCEM had vowed to fix the problems; months later though there is no change.The resident of Grand Turk called upon the new PDM Administration to bring about the ‘change’ it promised and asks Government to force Turks and Caicos Environmental Management to live up to its agreement in full; that agreement is for five years.#MagneticMediaNews #GrandTurkdumpsite #TCEM Related Items:#GrandTurkdumpsite, #magneticmedianews, #TCEMlast_img read more

NASA Mars Curiosity rover saw a weird light but dont freak out

first_img Sarah Tew/CNET NASA describes galactic cosmic rays as “particles accelerated to near the speed of light that shoot into our solar system from other stars in the Milky Way or even other galaxies.” Scientists are thinking ahead to how we can shield astronauts on Mars from the effects of radiation from cosmic rays. Cosmic rays are fleeting, but they have been spotted before. Apollo astronauts reported seeing “faint spots or flashes of light when the cabin was dark,” a phenomenon NASA attributed to cosmic rays. If the Curiosity rover kept a scrapbook, it could file this bright blip under “Cool Things I Saw on Mars.” $155 at Google Express See at Turo See at Amazon Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) Tags Share your voice Rylo HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) See It Mars rovers NASA Space,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff.

NASA/JPL-Caltech/red circle by Amanda Kooser/CNET We’re all excited about NASA’s Curiosity rover at the moment thanks to its intriguing discovery of a mysterious methane spike. Some of that fervor seems to be spilling over to an image the rover snapped on June 16 showing a bright blip of light on the distant horizon.The rover snapped a series of images, and the bright blip only appears in one. But don’t get your hopes up for signs of alien life on the Red Planet. We’ve seen this sort of light before.There are several good explanations for the glowing spot. “It’s most likely a sun glint or scattered light,” NASA media relations specialist Andrew Good said. “We’ve seen this many times throughout the mission.”  Curiosity captured a view of a very similar glow on the horizon in 2014. NASA’s Doug Ellison, who works with the rover camera, took to his personal Twitter account at the time to say that light was likely a cosmic ray hit.  Read DJI Osmo Action preview 17 Photos Chris Monroe/CNET JBL Soundgear wearable speaker: $90 (save $160) An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130.

When Will Tech Get Smart Enough to Stop Being Mens Work

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. 3 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. May 21, 2015 Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Only men should be plumbers.That sounds absurd, doesn’t it? But once upon a time, it was completely acceptable to call a male-dominated trade “men’s work.” So what about the tech field? Is this men’s work as well?Some people use this old-fashioned line of thinking to explain the glaring lack of women in tech. But does the field lack gender diversity because women are incapable of excelling in it? Or are women simply not interested in tech?The general assumption is that women are naturally inclined to pursue nurturing professions such as nursing and teaching. Men, on the other hand, head toward analytical professions because they are, supposedly, more pragmatic. But I don’t think this is the reason for the gender disparity in tech.Related: Team ‘Ban Bossy’ or Not: 3 Reasons Why Hiring Women In Tech Grows Business.I believe the more likely explanation is rooted in childhood. Girls typically aren’t encouraged to pursue careers in math and science, and they are steered toward other fields. Tech’s lack of gender diversity is a direct result of this.Organizations should prioritize diversity — in all forms. From a gender standpoint, companies that have women in leadership positions actually reap greater financial rewards than their male-leadership counterparts.Additionally, having a homogeneous workforce leads companies to neglect significant portions of their target audience. The more diverse your team, the more unique experiences members will bring to the table. This will undoubtedly lead your business to an increased level of creative innovation. The contributions of women are sorely needed for the tech space to properly grow and create products that are relevant to all types of people.Related: Richard Branson on Why Diversity Is an AdvantageThere are a number of misconceptions that keep women away from the tech world. For starters, it has the reputation of lacking creativity, diversity and flexibility. Here are a few tips that will help you create a more welcoming atmosphere for women:Don’t overlook women. If you see that a woman has applied for a job, interview her even if she seems unqualified for the position. Interviews can be a great learning opportunity for you as a leader. Ask her why she wants to work for you. Use this as a chance to better understand what attracts women to certain jobs.Talk to your current female employees. Hold regular meetings with your female employees. Ask them what they like and dislike about their jobs. Do they feel like your company is nurturing an inclusive atmosphere? Be an active listener, but also advise them on how they can provide more value to your organization.Host or attend an event geared to women. Host a “women in tech” happy hour or seminar at your company as a way to introduce your business to more women. You can also send a company representative to similar events to increase your visibility. Develop the identity of being a female-friendly company.These solutions will immediately help bring more women into the tech world. And when young girls see more women in the field, they’ll be more likely to gravitate toward it. This is crucial to tech’s long-term health.A more diverse tech industry will benefit your company and your consumers. Start the process by taking a few simple steps to create a more welcoming atmosphere for women.Related: The 4 Biggest Myths Discouraging Women From Tech Careers Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more
