A man appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Friday and vehemently denied that cocaine allegedly found in his possession belonged to him.According to Quacy Moore, on September 7, 2017, at Bourda, Georgetown, the one gram of cocaine allegedly discovered by Police on his person was “planted” on him.Moore told City Magistrate Judy Latchman that on the day of the discovery, he was in the vicinity of Bourda when he was approached and searched by ranks that were on patrol.He claimed that he was arrested without cause, however, while on his way to the Alberttown Police Station, he was shown the cocaine and told that the drug was found in his pocket which led to the present charge.Moore revealed that when he was first searched, there were a number of persons present that can attest to his story.Police Prosecutor Shawn Gonsalves told Magistrate Latchman that the analyst report in the matter would be available in two months.As such, she granted bail in the sum of ,000.The case will continue on September 29.
22 January 2007International Housing Solutions, a joint venture between MuniMae of the US and Irish property group Howard Eurocape, has opened its head office for Africa in Rosebank, Johannesburg and plans to invest in affordable housing development across South Africa.With extensive experience in financing affordable housing around the world, International Housing Solutions (IHS) “aims to bring foreign capital and expertise to South Africa to boost the supply of urgently needed quality, yet affordable, housing for low- and moderate-income households,” the company said in a statement this month.Elize Stroebel, who will head up IHS’s operations in SA, said IHS had conducted extensive research into the South African market.“Figures from the SA Banking Association show a growing demand for housing which local financial institutions and developers are unable to meet, causing the current housing deficit to grow by about 180 000 units each year,” Stroebel said in the statement.“Although the government has subsidised the construction of some 2.2-million homes in SA since 1994, a further 2.4-million homes are needed, an October 2006 report from the National Treasury revealed.“Short-term finance has proved to be a major stumbling block in the construction of more of these houses. Initially, IHS aims to help finance homes for households earning between R3 500 and R8 200 per month.”Soula Proxenos, IHS managing director Africa and UK, said IHS would draw on capital from different sources worldwide to help make home ownership and formal rental more affordable in SA.“We believe in public-private partnerships, and our experience in the US and other markets is that government and the private sector can be much more effective in partnership than alone. We also believe in partnering with local and international financial institutions.“We are in the process of establishing many of these relationships in South Africa,” Proxenos said. “IHS will fund the development of both rental and for-sale affordable housing communities by organising international debt and equity financing.According to Proxenos, IHS’s two parent companies bring with them “a wealth of experience in affordable housing finance and regeneration development … Howard Eurocape has property holdings under management and development worth over €2-billion in Ireland, the UK, Europe and South Africa, including the well known Mandela Rhodes Place in downtown Cape Town.”MuniMae, she said, was one of the largest sponsors of affordable housing investments in the US, with a portfolio of more than US$18-billion of assets under management.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
4 August 2014Cape Town’s first skate park in the city centre – designed, funded and constructed by the city’s Spatial Planning and Urban Design Department – has transformed an under-used and redundant city space into an community-led skate park.The Gardens Skate Park, under the Jutland Avenue bridge, was officially opened this weekend. The park will be managed by the City of Cape Town’s Sport, Recreation and Amenities Department.The park was the winner of an international design competition, held by Building Trust International last year, which called on professional and student architects to submit proposals that would turn “a neglected, forgotten part of your city into a playscape”.‘Massive win’“The project started as an initiative to transform a vacant public space into something that would benefit the community and also solve some of the issues that the site faced, like vandalism, littering and various other anti-social behaviour,” Garreth Bloor, Cape Town’s mayoral committee member for economic, environmental and spatial planning, told Design Indaba in November last year.Marco Morgan of the National Skate Collective, an advocacy group agrees: “It is a massive win,” he told the Weekend Argus on Saturday. “You can already see it breaking down the barriers of race, sex and age.”Skating is forbidden on Cape Town’s streets. However, Cape Town Mayco member Bruce Herron was quoted in the Weekend Argus as saying that the city was considering a new by-law that could allow skating on certain streets.The park is located under the Jutland Avenue/Mill Street bridge in Gardens and caters for both beginner and professional skaters, rollerbladers and BMXers. It is open from 8am to 9pm seven days a week and has floodlights as well as areas for spectators. At a busy intersection, it is fenced and access is controlled during operating hours. Street artist Dal East was commissioned to paint walls outside the park.Pipe jamThe Gardens skate park covers an area of 480 square metres. Designer Clive Crofton told the Design Indaba that the park had been designed in the plaza style with stairs and handrails and marble ledges – “the best surface to grind on when you’re down the ledge”.It features skate park elements, such as quarter pipes, banks, rails and a pipe jam, which is a pipe stuck in the ground – the only skate park in South Africa to feature that element.“The location proved suitable for an activity such as skateboarding and we hope that this project will set the precedent for the use of many of the vacant spaces below the city’s bridges and off-ramps,” said Johan van der Merwe, Cape Town’s MEC for Economic, Environmental and Spatial Planning.He said the skate park illustrated how innovative thinking and design-centred development could transform vacant and sometimes problematic spaces for the benefit of a wider community.SAinfo reporter
Even the most skeptical economic forecasters have to agree that the U.S. labor market has made strides, albeit small ones, in putting more people back to work in 2013.Preliminary numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) show that, on average, through October, 186,300 jobs were created each month of this year. That’s up from 172,700 during the January-October time frame in 2012 and an increase from an average of 169,900 during that same period in 2011.Data from the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM) Leading Indicators of National Employment (LINE) report also reveal that 2013 has been a solid year for job creation. In 11 of 12 months of 2013 service-sector hiring was reported to have surpassed the rate of hiring from the previous year, while the manufacturing sector saw year-over-year hiring gains in eight of the past 12 months, according to the LINE report.So what can we expect in 2014? Here are a few projections.The National Association of Business Economics’ (NABE) October 2013 Industry Survey report said a net of 27 percent of surveyed U.S. organizations will add jobs in the next six months (37 percent said payrolls will expand; 10 percent said payrolls will shrink, either through attrition or significant layoffs). The service sector is forecast to have the highest rate of job growth, with a net of 40 percent of respondents expecting to add jobs and have no layoffs. The goods-producing sector is expected to have the lowest job-creation rate, at a net of 5 percent (35 percent adding jobs, 30 percent eliminating them, through attrition or layoffs), according to NABE survey results.The organization reported that the average U.S. unemployment rate for this year was 7.5 percent. It projects that the annual average rate for 2014 will drop to 7 percent, though this is an improvement from 2012’s 8.1 percent. September 2013 projections by the U.S. Federal Reserve’s board of governors and bank presidents were slightly more optimistic, with both groups reporting that the average annual unemployment rate varied between 6.9 percent and 7.3 percent in 2013. As for 2014, members of those groups estimated that the average jobless rate would be between 6.2 percent and 6.9 percent.However, next year may be better for college graduates entering the workforce. Employers will hire approximately 8 percent more new college graduates for U.S. operations in 2013-14 than they did in 2012-13, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers’ NACE 2014 Job Outlook Survey, conducted Aug. 5 through Sept. 13, 2013, among its college-recruiting professional members. The results from the 208 returned surveys revealed that companies overall will hire 12 percent more new college graduates for U.S. and international locations combined. Mobile applications and software developers will have plenty of job opportunities in 2014, according to an annual salary guides published by staffing services company Robert Half International (RHI). Overall, base compensation for information-technology professionals in the United States is expected to increase 5.6 percent in 2014, primarily because of the higher demand for workers who can fill IT positions, RHI reported in an Oct. 14, 2013, press statement.The next highest average starting salaries in the U.S. are forecast to rise approximately 3 percent in 2014 for newly hired accounting and finance professionals as well as for creative and marketing professionals, according to RHI.Perhaps buoyed by improving conditions in the labor market, many workers will be looking for other opportunities in the new year, according to a survey by Right Management, a subsidiary of staffing management firm Manpower. Of the 871 U.S. and Canadian employees polled online from Oct. 16 to Nov. 15, 2013, 83 percent admitted they will look for a job in 2014. In addition, 12 percent were unsure but admitted to networking and updating their resume; only 5 percent plan to stay in their current position.“These numbers should signal a wake-up call for top management, when four out of five employees say they intend to look for employment elsewhere,” said Right Management’s Global Practice Leader for Employee Engagement Scott Ahlstrand. “Employers must act now to engage top talent and prevent them from leaving for the competition.”For more information, visit SHRM’s Labor Market and Economic Data page.Joseph Coombs is a senior analyst for workforce trends at SHRM.To read the original article on shrm.org, please click here.
8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market By guest author JawadShuaib, the founder of Shuzak.com: The social network forgeeks.Startups have been multiplying like rabbits over the past three years. Due to theadded competition, many startups are beginning to narrow their focus to a much smallerdemographic. The year 2007 will mark the transition from startups aiming for themainstream markets to specialists intensely focused on gaining smaller grounds. This is adifferent landscape, one that demands new rules of the game. It is the entrepreneur’s jobto anticipate these changes in order to align them with their startup’s future.Let us take a look at the social networks available for parents; in this categoryalone we have Cafe Mom, Maya’s Mom, MothersClick, MommyBuzz, MTV’s ParentsConnect,Famster, and Minti. The niche for parenthood seems to be taken. Yet, it can further bebroken down to, say, “Grandparents”, “Stay at home mothers”, “Single mothers”, etc.Becoming a master of any of the smaller niches has many great advantages, such as lesscompetition, loyal readership, and better focus. All marketers exploit a basicpositioning principle that states that it is better to be first than to be better. It isclearly too late to be the first social network, or bookmarking service, or video sharingstartup. Consequently, the Web 2.0 era demands that startups put intense focus on theirniche regardless of the smaller demographics.Image from web2logo.comA short history of startups on the Internet suggests that everything starts off with asingle category, which is then naturally subdivided into more categories as the number ofcompetitors rise. Division is a process that is unstoppable. To survive, startups mustposition themselves to be different, and the only way to do that today is to carve asnarrow a niche as possible. The article that follows dictates the immutable laws allstartups must follow for the sake of survival.1. Divide and Conquer, Differentiate or Die:There may never be a site as big as MySpace again. So while your slice of the marketmay not be as large, by dominating an entire category, your niche can maintain a smalleryet profitable business. As the size of a niche market declines, and the competition init increases, the perceived benefits of competing in that niche depreciates with each newarrival. If your niche is small enough, you can maintain healthy profits whilediscouraging potential competitors from entering your domain. The Law of Division dictates that all categories eventually diverge. They always haveand they always will. It is this divergence that creates opportunities for new startups.The best way to build a company is not by going after an existing category, but bycreating a new category you can be first in. In other words, the survival of a startuprequires that it diverge and then specialize. Markets favor the extremes.2. Generally Speaking, the Smaller the Niche, the More Loyal the UsersBecome.“If everyone exposed to a product likes it, the product will not succeed… The reasonthat a product “everyone likes” will fail is because no one“loves” it. The only thing that predicts success is passion, even if only 10%of the consumers have it.” – Scott Adams, Dilbert BlogIt comes as no surprise that a niche startup that is focused on its category tends tobuild a more bonded community. Digg started out as a great social bookmarking site forgeeks, but as it grew, so did its appetite for a larger share of the market.Consequently, Digg now has many new users but fewer die-hard fans. For many startups lineextension is the easy way out. It is perceived as the inexpensive, logical way to grow.Only when it is too late does a company turn and notice that they became large at theexpense of their user loyalty. Focus is the key to successfully building a community intoday’s ultra-competitive marketplace.3. Focus:Companies, especially the larger ones, have a natural tendency to expand their line ofbusiness. Google, for instance, is known for search but has its hands in just aboutanything “web”.  Expanding out too fast has annihilated nearly every empire and itsarmy in history. In a competitive environment, more is often less because with more youlose your focus.Big companies jump in with their brands to try to take market share from the leaderwhile startups pioneer new categories and sell out for millions. The benefit of operatinga niche startup is that everyone who visits the site will be looking exactly for whatthey provide. Niche is all about being on the narrow point of the wedge; that advantage,though, is ruined when a startup tries to be everything to everyone. The larger themarket, the more specialized a company must become. In the struggle for life, no twostartups can occupy the same position. If they try to do so, one company will drive theother to extinction.4. No Small Market is Small Enough:The world, according to the Internet, is 1 billion strong. The web, therefore,presents a huge opportunity for markets of any size. For instance, there are manythousands of users on the Internet who own and love Persian cats. So if your niche socialnetwork is for Persian cat owners, your potential market is still in several thousands.Is that too small? For MySpace it is, but not for a niche social network. That is thegreat thing about niche startups; no market can ever be too small. Even better, as thesize of the market depreciates, so does the threat of a larger competitor jumping in forthe share.No brand, no corporation, no startup can achieve 100 percent of a market in the faceof competition. Once you accept this reality, finding a niche is greatly simplified. Youdon’t have to face those demons that keep telling you, “Let’s not give up any part of themarket”. The truth is that all businesses are a niche business. The only difference isthat the leader’s niche is bigger than the niches owned by others, but it is still aniche. Nurturing the specific needs of the niche users has become the prevalent theme formost successful startups.5. Mind Numbingly Simple:“What does a person want when he or she clicks a search button?” – Phil Butler atProfy.com“All things being equal, the simplest solution tends to be the best one.” – Occam’sRazor How much time does it take for anyone to figure out about 80% of iPod’s functions? Twominutes at most. How much time does it take for someone to figure out about 80% ofGoogle’s functions? 5 seconds? There are 1000’s of components in the iPod, and 1000’s oflines of code running behind Google.  Yet, you can get up and running with both thesetechnologies in less than 3 minutes. That is the law of simplicity: Be mindnumbingly simple. Extra clicks are deadly.We tend to think of boredom on social networks as arising from a lack of stimuli. Asort of information underload. But more and more commonly, boredom is arising fromexcessive stimulation or information overload (often through excessive advertisements).Information, like energy, tends to degrade into entropy-into just noise and redundancy.In a world where startups are as common as ants in the jungle, it is important not tooverload the user with information. Complicated user interfaces do not help anybody.It follows that an unfocused startup will undoubtedly complicate things by forcingextra features onto a web page. Users like mindless choices so get rid of the questionmark lurking over the user’s head.6. Bubble Burps:“There is a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightlyalive.” – Miracle Max, The Princess BrideThis time last year, Bloggers were reporting on many Digg, YouTube and Del.icio.usclones. Many of those startups have died since, but the low cost of hosting means theycan stay online forever, despite having no users. The best way to build a startup is notby going after an existing category, but by creating a new category which it can be thefirst in. In other words, startups must focus on creating new markets over servingexisting ones.It is no secret that almost all startups will fail. This problem started with thebubble, and continues to plague the web today. Comparatively, not much money is flowinginto startups so there isn’t going to be another dot-com bubble. However, I anticipatethat the failure rate for startups will remain the same, if not worse. The biggest singlebarrier to the development of an effective startup strategy is the strongly held beliefthat a company has to appeal to the entire market. In today’s world, if a revenue lessbusiness model doesn’t kill your startup, a more focused competitor will. Conclusion A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Analysis#web guest author 1 Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Where is it written that a startup has to appeal to everybody? There is an almostreligious belief that a wider net catches more customers, in spite of many examples tothe contrary. A department store, for instance, is a place that sells everything. Butwhen a consumer requires some office supplies, they prefer Staples over WalMart. Why?Because even though WalMart is the largest department store in the world, it cannotcompete with a specialist business focused completely on what the customer needs.Generalists often manage to gain a larger share of the market at the expense of consumerloyalty. In the long term, the prospect turns to the specialist.The point is, on the Web, any additional feature adds to our cognitive workload;distracting our attention from the task at hand. The distractions may be slight but theyadd up, and sometimes it doesn’t take much to throw us. On the Internet, the competitionis always just one click away, so if you frustrate users they’ll head somewhere else. Astartup that remains focused on its niche can reduce competition and, therefore, avoidthe pressure to add pointless features. Expanding your focus and being strong somewhereis a better approach than expanding your focus and winding up weak everywhere.Notes: Moreover, if your niche is small enough, bigger corporations (Google, Microsoft,Yahoo, AOL) will not consider it worth pursuing. A few examples include email, online videos, calendars, news, blogs, desktopsearch, photo sharing, online payments, social networking, instant messaging, WiFi, wordprocessors, web hosting, search tool bars, spreadsheets, RSS readers, discussion groups,maps and more. In the past, I have written two articles suggesting that Google put an endto line extension: “How to FixGoogle” and “Napoleonic Lessons for Google and Microsoft“. Thomas Aquinasmade this argument in the 13th century, writing, “If a thing can be done adequatelyby means of one, it is superfluous to do it by means of several; for we observe thatnature does not employ two instruments where one suffices”. Google became the darling of the web 2.0 Generation for simplifying the searchexperience. A business is not a business if it does not make money. Having little definedmeans of generating money is a recipe for disaster. My ideas are never my own. In fact, I don’t think any idea can ever beindependently developed. The thoughts presented here were inspired by the authors ofthese books: “Don’t Make Me Think”, “Trout on Strategy”, “Focus”,“The Origin of Brands”, “The Immutable Laws of Marketing” and“Positioning”.
