They can travel onwards from there. A statement from Gardaí said: “The junctions will be manned at peak traffic times in an attempt to minimise disruption to travel times.

South Africa must up competitiveness

first_img7 July 2015The government and the manufacturing sector should raise South Africa’s competitiveness, says Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies.Speaking at the opening of the permanent exhibition site of the South Africa Technical Textile Cluster (SATTC) in Irene, Pretoria, yesterday, Davies said he was glad that the government supported the clothing and textile industry.The SATTC focuses on the military, police, fire fighting, navy, and camping sectors. The site showcases the impact that government support has on the cluster programme. The cluster comprises five groups, namely: Canvas and Tent, Parachute Systems, Stepahead Military Headwear, Gelvenor Textiles, and Fields Wear.Davies said that his department had established this cluster and others to ensure that members worked together in order to promote the sectors.The government and manufacturers needed to raise South Africa’s competitiveness and to appreciate the role that government support programmes could play in encouraging the manufacturing sectors to embark on a journey to becoming more export competitive.The previous incentive programmes based on the duty credit certificates were not working, he added, hence the department had adopted a different strategy with the Competitiveness Improvement Programme.According to Davies, the SATTC could benefit from the government in different ways.“First of all we have this tool of localisation which is called designation. All clothing and textile products which are procured by public entities in South Africa should come from local manufacturers using local raw materials. There also is a need for a deeper conversation with the [Department of Trade and Industry] on market access opportunities with some of the countries on the continent.“We do have foreign economic representatives on the continent that would be of great assistance with regards to market penetration,” Davies said.Barend Pretorius of Parachute Systems said that the cluster had helped his company with co-ordination and marketing its products.“Working on the cluster configuration is so much easier to move out into the world marketing not only our product but also other members’ products. We have agreed that we will market the products of other sector members when we go out of the country,” said Pretorius.The SATTC has also enhanced employment in the sector, thanks to the government’s interventions.Other than the SATTC, there are three other clusters in the textile and clothing sector on which the government is also spending money to promote and enhance the competitiveness of the sector. These clusters are: National Fashion Council, Mohair Cluster, and the South African Sustainable Textiles and Apparel Cluster.Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more

Game Of Thrones Natalia Tena Supports Survival International Campaign

first_imgGame of Thrones and Harry Potter star Natalia Tena has lent her support to a Survival International campaign to finally bring the killers of three Colombian Indian leaders to justice.Twenty-two years ago, in November 1990, Angel María Torres and two other leaders of Colombia’s Arhuaco tribe were kidnapped, tortured and killed. They were travelling from their home in Colombia’s northern Sierra Nevada region to the capital Bogotá when they were detained by the army. Shortly after their disappearance, their corpses were found with signs of severe torture.In a rare interview, Angel María Torres’s widow Dilia has spoken of the grief and despair of the last 22 years.‘My husband’s hair was gone and his fingers were missing (…) I have lost my husband and all hope of a life with my partner and family.’ Dilia Torres told Survival.The appeal is supported with a voice-over by Game of Thrones and Harry Potter star Natalia Tena.Following an international campaign by Survival, its supporters and the Arhuaco, the United Nations and the Colombian government upheld the army’s responsibility for the men’s death. However no-one has been punished for the crime.Colombia’s indigenous peoples are caught in the cross-fire of Colombia’s civil war, and attacks on them continue. In November, Arhuaco leader Rogelio Mejia was driving in a car with a Survival researcher when the vehicle was attacked by gunmen. Mejia escaped with three gunshot wounds, but the case remains unresolved.Natalia Tena said, ’Dilia’s story of the loss of her husband touched me deeply, which is why I am supporting Survival’s campaign against impunity for crimes against Colombia’s indigenous people.’Survival’s Director Stephen Corry said, ‘Rarely is there a more explicit and stomach-churning example of government-sponsored violence against tribal peoples. And yet there are those that continue to promulgate the lie that tribal peoples fare better when the state is imposed upon them. Arhuaco tribeswoman Dilia Torres would vehemently disagree.’Source:Survival Internationallast_img read more

Bret Bielema Urban Meyer agree on rivalry game

Ohio State football won’t play its annual game against Michigan until Nov. 24 , but there’s a rivalry game this Saturday to tide the Buckeyes over. Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema labeled this weekend’s matchup with the Buckeyes as a rivalry game Tuesday at the weekly Big Ten football coaches teleconference. “It’s a big one,” Bielema said. Last year, OSU upset then-No. 12 Wisconsin in a game that Bielema called “heartbreaking.” The year before, Wisconsin gave a then-No.1 OSU squad its only loss of the season. Dating back to 2005, either Wisconsin or OSU has won at least a share of the Big Ten conference title. “What makes a good rivalry is when two good teams play significant games,” said first-year OSU coach Urban Meyer. “Over the past decade, certainly in recent history, these two teams have been near the top of the Big Ten. That’s made this a very interesting rivalry.” The current landscape of the Big Ten conference has allowed the OSU-Wisconsin rivalry to blossom. The Buckeyes and Badgers are both members of the Leaders Division, guaranteeing a meeting between the programs every year. Meyer said he has no doubt that Wisconsin will always compete for the division championship, making the OSU and Wisconsin game a pivotal one in determining the Leaders Division champion for years to come. That will be the case this weekend; a win against Wisconsin, and OSU will be crowned as king of the Leaders Division. Badgers not holding back Because OSU and Penn State are ineligible from postseason play, Wisconsin secured a spot in the Big Ten Championship game last weekend with a win against Indiana .  But that doesn’t mean the Badgers will hold back this weekend against the Buckeyes. “Our goal year in and year out is to win our division,” Bielema said. “Obviously, we have to beat Ohio State for that to happen this year.” Nearly every year in the NFL, teams will rest their starters during the final weeks of the regular season once their playoff destinies are finalized. Bielema said, however, that the thought of benching his key players until the Big Ten Championship Game on Dec. 1 hadn’t even crossed his mind. “We would probably have a mutiny if I tried to take anyone out of the game,” Bielema said. “This is a chance to play the team that’s No. 1 in our division. I want to win in the worst way because Ohio State has set the standard for winning in this league.” Although the goal is to beat the Buckeyes, the Wisconsin coach said his team doesn’t need to win the division outright to legitimize their inevitable spot in the conference championship game. “We’re going to play the schedule that’s laid out,” Bielema said. “All we do is play the schedule that’s in front of us and live with the results.” read more
