first_imgMelissa Javan12 August 2016Tebogo Suping of Kagiso in Gauteng is one of 50 young people who are featuredin the book Activate! Change Drivers that was recently launched inSouth Africa.“It’s our turn to change the world,” says the book’s first page. On another page,a woman is holding a placard that reads: “Our country. Our voice. Youth can changethings.”The book gives insight to what the members of the network Activate! SouthAfrica are doing across the country. The 50 young people are members of thenetwork. These members are called the Activators.Suping tries to improve the lives of school children in her community. She hasestablished a business called the Blaq Apple Communications and Events. Everyyear she and her team run camps for matric learners during the school holidays atthe local community centre.They help the learners with study support and personal mentoring. Throughoutthe process the learners must do communitywork to teach them to be sociallyaware, reads the book. They have also helped the learners with practical knowledgelike getting ready for university studies, applying for a bank account or an identitybook and bursary applications.At the end of last year, six of the learners who were helped by Suping and herteam were in the top two of their schools. The six obtained 33 distinctions betweenthem, including maths and science.“There is time to make money and there is time to makechange” – Tebogo Suping @ActivateZA @Ke_Geeman #Activating2030— Mr. PR (@collensthe) July 29,2016Benefits of the networkThe aim of the Activators in the network is to build the youth’s identity, createprojects, share ideas and collaborate with each other to drive opportunities.The book also says that in 2015 the Activate Community DevelopmentCertificate Course was piloted and applied to the South African QualificationAuthority to accredit the course. The aim is to offer an accredited qualification incommunity development at NQF level 5.This is to help the committed young people (the Activators) get a qualificationthat will be recognised in their communities and in society.Chris Meintjes is the chief executive officer of the network Activate!He believes that by June 2030, the future of South Africa will look good if theActivators are still busy with their community work. (Image: Activate!Leadership)The aim of the bookChris Meintjes, chief executive officer of the network, says in the foreword ofthe book: “The purpose of this book is to inspire all who read it. There’s not a wholelot of good news around, yet when you look at the challenges young people face,and see how the Activators are working together to create opportunities, youbecome aware that the future is filled with hope.”The network founded in 2011.Meintjes explains that each Activator has committed to a journey of service tothe public. “They work from within their own homes, communities and beyond.Many of them run their own initiatives and some volunteer in support of others.”The book launchThe book launch took place on 29 July 2016 in Johannesburg.At the launch, Meintjes says it has been a humbling experience working withthe Activators. “The past five years has been an incredible journey. The book is astep in theright direction for us.“It celebrates what is possible in the hands of a network of people. You[Activators] are the reason that there is rekindled hearts in this country.”He says the network started to build opportunities and create connections.“They [the Activators] give me hope. I see the value in the work they’re doing. Isee a future – it looks promising, that future – when I am working with thesepeople.”Meintjes says in 2011 when the network started, they worked with 20 to 30year olds. “Their energy is amazing.”He says if you flip over the book, you’ll see the possibilities of what the futurewill look like if these Activators continue with their good work in South Africa.”Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?See Using SouthAfrica.info materiallast_img read more

Video: LSU Student On Jeopardy Can’t Answer Questions About Derrick Henry, Steve Spurrier

first_imgJeopardy question asks what university Derrick Henry plays for.Twitter/@KenzieThirkillWhen college football is a category on Jeopardy, it almost never goes well. In the past, we’ve had a former LSU lineman say that Syracuse was in the Ivy League, contestants failed miserably on a question about the Big Ten, they’ve avoided a question about the sport’s stadium nicknames like the plague, and perhaps worst of all, one man thought Auburn is  called the “Crimson Tide.”College students from LSU, Northeastern, and Wright State competed on the show tonight, and you’d think someone at an SEC powerhouse would fare better when asked about the sport. You’d be very, very wrong. When asked questions about former Florida and South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier and Alabama Heisman winner Derrick Henry, LSU student Kevin didn’t even try to give an answer. I. JUST. CAN’T. pic.twitter.com/Z8LBfGOQu9— Mackenzie Thirkill (@KenzieThirkill) February 3, 2016SEC fans on Twitter are ROASTING him, as you’d expect.the LSU senior on college jeopardy who couldn’t get a spurrier quote or where derrick henry went to college shouldn’t be allowed to graduate— arflora (@arflora) February 2, 2016An RA from LSU is on college Jeopardy! and failed to get “where did Derrick Henry play” and “who is the Head Ball Coach” and I’m mad.— Robby Kalland (@RKalland) February 3, 2016Kid on jeopardy enrolled at LSU and doesn’t know who Derrick Henry, 2015 Heisman trophy winning running back, played for.. Study less.— Luke Longfield (@Lukers17) February 3, 2016Ain’t NO WAY IN HELL the kid from LSU in College Jeopardy didn’t know Derek Henry went to Bama.

first_imgReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Cheap city break? Spot of spring sunshine? Get inspired for your next trip, be it a short break or summer holiday, somewhere new or an old favourite, with these six great value flights – all starting at less than £48 return.1. Pisa, Italy from £41You can’t go to Pisa without getting a photo of you holding up the Leaning Tower. You may find yourself in a feature called ’10 cheesiest holiday photos’ but there’s a time and a place to be a total tourist, and that’s here. Photo opportunities aside, there is much more to do in this pretty, romantic Tuscan city. Like eat. Pick a place for pizza in Piazza dei Cavaleri or a tourist-free trattoria around Via San Martino, order a bottle of sun-nourished Suvereto and raise a tipsy toast to la dolce vita. 5. Frankfurt, Germany from £34Frankfurt is all about big business, but there’s more to this pin-striped powerhouse than skyscrapers and banking HQs. One benefit of being business-orientated is that hotels lower their prices in the holidays, so you should be able to find a bargain room for a summer city break. Swap the cityscapes for chocolate box streets in Frankfurt’s Old Town – pictured below. 4. Paris (Beauvais), France from £34Ok, the cheapest flights to Paris are usually to Beauvais, which isn’t quite slap bang in the 1st arrondissement, but a bus journey (offering the chance to see some unheralded French countryside!) takes you into the heart of Paris, so you can save your money for splashing out on an atmospheric hotel in Montmartre to impress your other half. Or you could just fly to Charles de Gaulle and get the regular RER train into the city centre. 7. Aarhus, Denmark from £41Aarhus is no Paris or Rome in the iconic city break stakes, but art lovers to whom the Tate Modern is old hat would relish a trip to the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, one of the largest art museums in northern Europe (so says the brochure). Its highlight is ‘Your Rainbow Panorama’, a 150-metre-long seven-colour walkway on the roof. 8. (Glasgow) Prestwick, Scotland from £38If you like to get away from the stresses and strains of modern-day life, and a week by the pool with your favourite Catherine Cookson isn’t your idea of a peaceful retreat, head instead to a real retreat. Sitting just off the Scottish island of Arran, Holy Isle is now a spiritual retreat run by a Buddhist Lama. Come for just a day, or more, either to simply wander the land or enrol in more spiritual endeavours by taking a course in yoga or meditation. There’s no pool, but the Firth of Clyde is your oyster.center_img 2. Cork, Ireland from £34Fancy a pint? If you’ve already done Dublin or would prefer somewhere less rowdy for a pub crawl, try Ireland’s second city. The perfect place to start sampling the local brews is not on the plane but at the Franciscan Well Brewery, which not only serves one of the best selections of beer in Ireland, but also boasts probably its best (heated) beer garden. RelatedSkint trips: 5 flights under £50Get away for a break on a budget this autumn with our pick of five flights to France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Croatia, all less than £50.10 flights for under £5010 flights, 10 city breaks in Europe for fun, sun and shopping.Stress-free holiday planning – the 10 steps you need to knowWant to take the stress out of holiday planning? Follow these easy tips and whether your dream holiday is the beach, a cosmopolitan city, or an epic road trip, you can even enjoy the research, booking and packing that will get you there. Imagine that!  1. Set your budget Photo credit: Christine Roy Your… 6. Santander, Spain from £34Better known these days as one of the world’s largest banks, Santander, the port city in Cantabria, northern Spain, came first. One way of getting there is by ferry, from Portsmouth or Plymouth, which despite taking 20 hours, has its advantages, like the chance of seeing cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises). Or you could just take a short flight for a short break. Take a windswept walk up to Cabo Mayor lighthouse to earn yourself a plate of rabas (fried calamari) and blow your entire holiday budget in neoclassical style at the Gran Casino del Sardinero. 3. Gothenburg, Sweden from £37Stockholm has a reputation for being an expensive city to visit, while Gothenburg is both cheaper and less visited by tourists. Splash your spending cash on a shopping spree on Kungsportsavenyn Boulevard – it has been compared to the Champs Élysées – while Saluhallen market is a must-do for foodies.last_img read more

The Guardian Media Summit Sky has no plans to foll

first_imgThe Guardian Media SummitSky has no plans to follow the BBC in commissioning programming exclusively for online, according to the satellite firm’s director of corporate business development and investments Emma Lloyd.Speaking on a panel discussion at The Guardian’s Changing Media Summit last week, Lloyd said that Sky’s online strategy focused on partnering with “innovative companies like Zeebox” and enabling content producers to put additional content on the second screen – but not in making new shows specifically for it.Referring to Zeebox, the companion app that Sky invested in back in January 2012, Lloyd said integrating this service into its Sky Plus app last year, allowing users to control their set-top box with it, was a significant step for the firm.“We can really start to see what customers are doing – they’re logged in with Sky ID and that helps our programmers, it helps with scheduling, it helps with understanding what programmes are working, and it enables us to experiment – but at the moment we’re not going as far as the BBC in terms of originating content purely for digital,” she said.The comments came as the BBC announced it had ordered a strand of six original dramas exclusively for the iPlayer through its youth-skewing network BBC3 in a bid to bring through new talent and showcase more content on the service. 
Last month, the BBC also said that it plans to debut 40 hours of content on the iPlayer before linear TV. The first of these, announced today, is Car Share, a six-part BBC1 comedy that will be the first-ever series to premiere on BBC iPlayer in its entirety before a linear transmission.Speaking alongside Lloyd on the conference panel, called Beyond the box: What does television look like in a social, mobile-first, user-centric world?, Victoria Jaye,BBC Vision’s head of IPTV and online content, said that the BBC’s online strategy was a “no-brainer” after it experimented by airing a string of online BBC3 comedy pilots last year.“These pilots – we did seven of them in total – had a million views in the 10 days they were available on the iPlayer. They were more viewed than on-demand programmes from BBC3 during those 10 days, and one of those web pilots was the most-shared content in the whole of iPlayer in the month of July. So that gives us a good indication we’re onto something.”Discussing its strategy, Darren Childs, CEO of UKTV, added that using the web to source new on-screen talent from sites like YouTube was a valuable resource, with social media helping to feed audience interest“Dynamo, which has been one of our biggest hits, was discovered online. We brought him in and nurtured him and turned him into a big star and gave him a big audience, which has built his online presence. So his Facebook and Twitter presence is now in multiple millions of users, so we have an engagement model now as well,” said Childs.last_img read more
