Play Your Part for a globally competitive South Africa

first_imgBrand South Africa encourages communities in Mpumalanga to play their part in making South Africa a competitive nationJohannesburg, Friday 24 October 2014 – Brand South Africa and Sanlam hosted a Play Your Part Stakeholder Engagement in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga on Thursday 23 October 2014. Stake holders from Sanlam, Brand South Africa and the University of Mpumalanga were in attendance including local business partners from Mpumalanga.In his address, CEO of Brand South Africa Miller Matola spoke about the Play Your Part initiative run by Brand South Africa and described it as a “movement to get South Africans to make a contribution to the country to grow its competitiveness”. One of Brand South Africa’s mandates is to position South Africa as a globally competitive destination by developing symbiotic partnerships with stakeholders who can give expression to this message. “Our role as Brand South Africa is to get the international world to buy into this country,” he added.The purpose of this engagement was to inspire citizens to play their part, in their respective spaces, to build on South Africa’s global competitiveness. While government’s create enabling legislation and policies for inward investment, local communities are critical to the bigger picture of South Africa’s competitiveness since investors set up their operations in cities. South Africa’s global competitiveness is therefore something that each citizen – wherever they are – can contribute to building.Prof J P Shongwe, Acting Chairperson: Strategic Management Team from the University of Mpumalanga echoed Mr Matola’s sentiments about the importance of active citizenship and forming such partnerships with Brand South Africa and Sanlam. The University of Mpumalanga is fairly new and has made great strides in providing higher education to the local community. The university’s main academic programme is in agriculture and it recognises the importance of having a higher learning institution locally in order to equip citizens in Mpumalanga to actively participate and compete in the economy.Join the conversation on South Africa’s competitiveness on @Brand_SA via #CompetitiveSA.About Brand South AfricaBrand South Africa is the official marketing agency of South Africa, with a mandate to build the country’s brand reputation, in order to improve its global competitiveness.

Mashrafe Mortaza ‘worried’ about ankle injury ahead of England series

first_imgBangladesh skipper Mashrafe Bin Mortaza who suffered a bad fall while bowling against Afghanistan in the third and final One-Day International (ODI), hopes his injury is not serious.But he is “a bit worried” about whether he can be fit in time for the England series, beginning on October 7, reports bdnews24.com.The pacer dismissed Afghan opener Mohammad Shahzad with the first ball of his second over at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Saturday. Bangladesh won the match by 14 runs.But in the next ball, his front foot got tangled with the rear one on his delivery stride and he painfully landed on his ankle.His team-mates rushed to attend to their captain but Mashrafe got treated on the field and finished his over. He then went off the field for an over and returned to bowl with a shorter run-up.Mashrafe, who turns 33 on Wednesday, limped his way in and out of the post-match press conference.”I was kind of having a feeling about the injury since this morning — anyways, there is a slight swelling. I hope the pain will go away,” Mashrafe said on Saturday.But with the England ODIs just a few days away, he will not get much time to tend to his sore ankle.”I’ve hurt this ankle before as well. That is why I am a bit uneasy. It might have been okay if I had 10 days. But we have five or six days to go before the England series. So I am a bit worried. Let’s see, I hope there won’t be any problem.”advertisementMashrafe’s career has been plagued with injuries but he has not picked up any major injury since becoming the captain almost two years ago.last_img read more

first_imgAustralia skipper Meg Lanning led from the front with a brilliant unbeaten half century to guide her side to an eight-wicket win over India and seal their semi-finals spot in the ongoing Women’s World Cup on Wednesday.The Australians have now 10 points in their kitty from six outings and sit on top of the table while India are fourth on the ladder with 8 points from six matches.The Indian eves now face a must-win situation in their final group tie against New Zealand on Saturday, to qualify for the last four stage of the tournament.Along with Australia, hosts England and South Africa have booked their place in the last four.Put in to bat, India rode on a defiant century from opener Punam Raut (106 off 136 balls, 11*4) and skipper Mithali Raj’s 69 (off 114 balls, 4*4, 1*6) to post a below-par 227-run target which the Southern Stars chased down without much hiccups at the County Ground here.Punam and Mithali lifted India with a 157-run second wicket stand after a disastrous start but failed to continue the momentum in the later stages of the innings.All-rounder Harmanpreet Kaur (23 off 22 balls, 1*4, 1*6) was the only other batswoman to reach the double-digits as the middle order comprising Veda Krishnamurthy (0), Sushma Verma (6) and Jhulan Goswami (2) failed to provide any substance to the total.The 34-year-old Mithali, during her knock got past former England captain Charlotte Edwards’s record of 5992 runs and also became the first woman to breach the 6000-run mark.In reply, the Australians got off to a brilliant start with the opening duo of Nicole Bolton (36 off 48 balls, 6*4) and Beth Mooney (45 off 68 balls, 5*4) setting the tone with a 62-run stand.advertisementThereafter, Lanning (76 not out off 88 balls, 7*4, 1*6) and Ellyse Perry (60 not out off 67 balls, 8*4) held the innings together with a 124-run unbeaten stand for the third wicket to dent India’s hopes.Perry also took two wickets with her gentle medium pace giving away 37 runs during the Indian innings.Brief Scores: India 226-7 (Punam Raut 106, Mithali Raj 69, Harmanpreet Kaur 23, Ellyse Perry 2/37) lose to Australia 227/2 (Meg Lanning 76 not out, Ellyse Perry 60 not out, Beth Mooney 45) by 8 wickets.last_img read more

TV Personality Lainey Lui Joins World Animal Protection campaign to save dogs

first_imgTV Personality Lainey Lui Joins World Animal Protection campaign to save millions of dogs around the world. (CNW Group/World Animal Protection) Facebook Twitter Advertisement Advertisement TORONTO, Sept. 25, 2017 /CNW/ – Global charity World Animal Protection marked a major milestone last year, with one million rabies vaccinations delivered as part of its Better Lives for Dogs campaign. This year, just in time for World Rabies Day (September 28), the organization has announced a new campaign ambassador and expansion of the international vaccination program to Sierra Leone.With only four active vets in the entire country and an overwhelming population of stray dogs, the animal welfare situation in Sierra Leone is very serious.“In Freetown, Sierra Leone, we estimate there to be approximately 100,000 stray dogs,” said Josey Kitson, Executive Director at World Animal Protection Canada.  “The potential for rabies exposure and other conflicts with stray dogs is a real and daily fear for people. Tragically, authorities sometimes opt to kill the dogs in an attempt to safeguard their communities but we know vaccination is the only way. World Animal Protection is working towards humane solutions to the issues that cause fear, misunderstanding and a divide between a community and their dogs by providing free rabies vaccinations and education on the ground.”center_img The misguided killing is not specific to Sierra Leone, however. There are 700 million dogs in the world today and many of them are free roaming, unwanted, unhealthy and unvaccinated. Fear of bites and rabies mean that millions are killed every year.World Animal Protection has been leading the way to stop these unnecessary killings. Working with local governments, the global charity has performed more than one million vaccinations of dogs in Kenya, Zanzibar, China, Indonesia, the Philippines and Bangladesh.Many high-profile Canadians have been supporting the campaign and its work by using their voice to raise awareness of the campaign and highlight the need for action to protect dogs around the globe. This year, a new champion has joined the cause: Elaine “Lainey” Lui, Co-host of CTV’s THE SOCIAL, ETALK Senior Correspondent, and Founder/Editor of top Canadian entertainment website LaineyGossip.com, is the latest dog lover to speak out in support of Better Lives for Dogs.“I’m so honoured to be a part of World Animal Protection’s ambassador roster,” said Elaine Lui. “My dogs Barney and Elvis are part of my family, and I can’t imagine life without them. It’s unbelievable to think millions of dogs lose their lives over something as preventable as rabies and fear. Through education, vaccination and grassroots community engagement, dogs around the world can lead healthier, happier lives and bring joy to those around them – just like our own pets do.”All dogs deserve to live without fear and suffering, and we can all help by supporting responsible dog ownership and vaccination. World Animal Protection’s goal is to improve the lives of 50 million dogs by 2020.  Visit www.worldanimalprotection.ca to find out more.About World Animal Protection:For more than 50 years and in more than 50 countries, World Animal Protection has been preventing animal cruelty and inspiring people to change animals’ lives for the better. Today we’re working on projects with local partners, governments and businesses to find practical ways to prevent animal suffering worldwide.  We also collaborate with the UN and other international bodies to make sure animals are on the global agenda because animal protection is a fundamental part of a sustainable future.
