This they ensured by making sure South Africa, and the world, stand as one to wish Madiba the best in song.The organisation wanted to create an endearing memory by giving him the best birthday present ever – the love of the world.Approximately 12.5-million school children participated in the initiative,  which was also supported by the Department of Basic Education, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Shout, Brand South Africa and Proudly South African.A Lead SA spokesperson said the unique and memorable rendition of the Happy Birthday song marks a place in time for all South Africans to preserve Madiba’s living legacy.At 8am South Africans from all walks of life, including pupils, prominent artists and personalities, united their voices in song to wish the country’s favourite icon good health and a blessed day – a gesture of love and appreciation broadcast on national TV and by most radio stations.Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga led pupils from a school in Limpopo in song.Tata Madiba, who has bowed out of public life, was visited by President Jacob Zuma in his rural home in Qunu in the Eastern Cape the week before. Zuma had been in the area to view the construction site of a bridge that is being built in Madiba’s honour to increase access to Mvezo village.Zuma reported that Mandela was in good health, happy and content.67 minutes for TataMany government employees heeded the call to spend some time on Nelson Mandela’s birthday doing something for those less fortunate than themselves. From administrative staff to premiers and even ministers, the 67 minutes campaign received a lot of support on the day.In honour of the iconic leader, businesses, schools, government structures, charitable groups and ordinary South Africans gave 67 minutes of their time to give back to their communities.International Nelson Mandela Day is not only special to the man himself, but to ordinary citizens as they celebrate by taking action to help change the world for the better.And this year has not been any different, as people across the country played their part by ploughing back into communities, either by refurbishing schools, helping out at old age homes and hospitals, among others.Various events, both by government and non-governmental organisations, were planned across the country. The national event was held in Zeerust, where Arts and Culture Minister Paul Mashatile and the Premier of North West Thandi Modise set aside time to do community service.Staff from Modise’s office handed out gifts to three schools,  the Madiba Comprehensive School in Rooigrond, as well as Thutlwane and Madibogo Pan primary schools.Cabinet ministers get involvedSeveral other Cabinet ministers also rolled up their sleeves to do their 67 minutes. Public Works Minister Thulas Nxesi was at the Refilwe Orphanage, Disability Centre in Cullinan, east of Pretoria.The centre – which hosts 60 senior citizens, 200 vulnerable children and 56 people with disabilities – operates as a drop-in centre where vulnerable children, senior citizens and people with disabilities are cared for during the day by giving them food, educational and recreational activities.Motshekga’s deputy Enver Surty led proceedings in Gauteng at the Batsogile Primary School in Pimville, Soweto.Deputy Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Rejoice Mabudafhasi was at Boitumelo High School in Ficksburg, where she mobilised the local community to provide their time and labour for free to paint the school; laying the foundation for toilets; cleaning the school yard and planting trees, amongst others.Deputy Minister of Women, Children and People with Disabilities Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu led a team of volunteers on Tuesday night who handed over blankets, soup and pizza and to people living on the streets in and around Pretoria.Provincial initiativesProvincial administrators also honoured their 67 minutes pledge. The Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport undertook a cleaning campaign at the Mabopane Driver’s Licence Testing Centre – one of the busiest in Pretoria. The campaign is expected to create a new face for the centre and make it environment-friendly.There were other activities including story-telling, motivational talks as well as sporting activities.In the Eastern Cape, the Minister of Transport Ben Martins and the province’s transport MEC Thandiswa Marawu were to honour the 67 minutes initiative by painting road markings in Sutherland Street in Mthatha before educating learners at Milton Mbekele Senior Secondary about road safety.The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) played their part countrywide as their staff dedicated their 67 minutes to as many as 15 projects.One of the projects was the New Jerusalem Children’s Home in Midrand. An estimated 60 IEC staff members were cleaning, painting and maintaining the home, which provides residential care for abandoned, abused, traumatised, orphaned or HIV-positive children and vulnerable youth.Others include the Ratanang School for people with disabilities in Limpopo, Othandweni Family Care Centre in Soweto, and the Kgomotsego Old Age Home in Kuruman.IEC Chairperson Pansy Tlakula said she was excited at the high level of energy demonstrated by her officials nationally, and proud that the organisation would be involved in so many projects.Early birthday messages to Madiba have also been pouring in. Eastern Cape Premier Noxolo Kiviet assured Tata that her department was working tirelessly – more than 67 minutes every day – to make sure that the face of his home province of the Eastern Cape changes for the better.“We understand that unless that life of prosperity and greatness manifests for the most down trodden and poor people and their communities. We will be failing you and other past leaders who made supreme sacrifices for the freedom and democracy we are enjoying today,” Kiviet said before wishing him good health.On Wednesday evening, soccer fans at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban will once again sing for Madiba ahead of kick-off of the match between AmaZulu and Manchester United.Additional reporting from SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

SA, Japan look to build on partnershipsSA, Japan look to build on partnerships

first_img15 May 2013 South Africa is looking to build on the recent levels of interest and investment from Japanese companies as part of the country’s involvement in the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) taking place in Japan in June. South Africa has seen increased interest from Japanese companies and banks looking to use the country as a springboard into the rest of Africa, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) director-general Lionel October said at a pre-TICAD seminar in Johannesburg on Tuesday. “Our collaboration with the international community, especially Japan, is designed to help us achieve inclusive growth, sustainable development and a prosperous South Africa,” October said. “Japan has been a long-standing investor in South Africa and a major investor in the African continent. In 2011, South Africa managed to attract investments worth $312-million from Toyota and Kansai Paint.” There are currently over 110 Japanese firms operating in South Africa. “These companies have created over 150 000 jobs in the country and therefore Japan is looking to increase cooperations assistance in Africa,” said the Japanese Ambassador to South Africa Yutaka Yoshizawa. TICAD was established in 1993 to promote high-level policy dialogue between African leaders and development partners. It is hosted in Tokyo every five years, co-sponsored by the Japanese government, the World Bank, United Nations Development Programme, the United Nation’s Office of the Special Advisor on Africa and the Global Coalition for Africa. This year’s conference will take place from 1 to 3 June, and will feature seminars by the DTI to create awareness of the business climate and opportunities in South Africa.

The 3 Easiest Ways to Cut Clips in Adobe Premiere Pro CCThe 3 Easiest Ways to Cut Clips in Adobe Premiere Pro CC

first_imgIn this walkthrough, we’ll cover how to use the razor tool, the ctrl+K/⌘+K shortcut, and Ripple and Trim editing techniques in Premiere Pro.Cutting, obviously, is one of the most important parts of an edit. It’s the primary function of editing software — to cut down clips and place them in a particular order to create a story. And then, after everything is organized, you may have to cut down even further and comb through additional video and audio tracks. When you get to that point, what’s the best way to approach cutting?Well, thankfully, Premiere Pro offers three distinct ways to manipulate and cut up a clip — or your timeline:The Razor ToolThe “Command/Ctrl + K” Shortcut / Playhead SplittingRipple and Trim CuttingThere are some other ways to cut, such as the slip and slide method, but for this article, we’re just going to look at some of the fundamental edit tools. Even if you know all the different ways to cut, it’s good to know which tool works best for your particular edit.How to Use the Razor ToolAh, yes. The ol’ Razor Tool. It’s the first thing you learn to use when editing your first project, since it’s the most direct cutting tool. For beginners, this is a really easy tool to get the hang of because it’s so straightforward. It’s also very useful when making a montage jump cut because you can just cut down the line and delete the sections of the clip that you don’t need.The Razor Tool is also a huge help when working with large timelines with multiple tracks because you can simply select the clip you want to cut by placing your razor over it. So, basically, if you need to make a bunch of cuts in a row, the Razor is the tool for the job.The razor tool, however, has its limitations. If you want it to magnetize to your playhead, you must select the magnetize option, and switching from your cursor to the Razor Tool can become tedious (even though it’s just pressing the C key. What? I’m lazy.). It also can be tricky to use on a spaced-out timeline, and it may cut a few frames you didn’t intend to trim. It’s not really a part of my editing workflow since I primarily use the ⌘+K method (we’ll get to that next), but everything in its right place.How to Split a Clip at the Playhead (⌘+K)If you’re a keyboard shortcut junkie like myself, ⌘+K (or Ctrl+K if you are editing with a PC), this may already be your cutting technique of choice. The way Playhead Splitting works is that when you enter ⌘+K while clicked into your timeline, the command splits your selected clip right at the playhead marker. Simple enough, right?It’s one of the simplest, most effective cuts you can make since your playhead is usually on top of where you want to cut when you’re scrubbing through footage. You can also hold shift along with ⌘+K, and that will cut all the tracks on the playhead, not just the selected ones. This is great if you have loads of tracks on your timeline and need an all-encompassing cut on the fly.The ⌘+K shortcut is incredibly simple to use, and it’s great for making a cut if your playhead is already at your desired cut location, but when making a huge batch of cuts, it comes up a little short compared to the Razor Tool’s speed.The difference between the ⌘+K and Razor Tool methods is an age-old debate between editors, and you’ll get a different opinion from every editor. It’s almost like New York Pizza vs. Chicago Deep Dish — it really just comes down to preference.Using the Ripple/Trim ToolWhether you’re a razor tool user or a ⌘+K fan, it goes without saying that the ripple and trim tools are very helpful for trimming or expanding the ends of clips. If you want to trim or expand the end of a clip, simply hover your cursor over the end of the clip and drag it once you see the red block arrow appear. You can also select multiple clips in your timeline to adjust if you are trying to cut down multiple tracks to a certain point.If you’re cutting down a clip and want it to “ripple delete,” which is where the clip beside the clip being cut snaps to the edit point, you can access this by going to the end of your clip and trimming it while holding Shift.The ripple/trim tools are excellent at final-pass editing, where you have to cut out chunks of your timeline to try and make it fit a certain length without having to edit single clips.So . . . Which One Do I Use?Well, it’s a complicated question with a pretty simple answer: whichever one allows you to do more in less time. Once you’ve mastered each of these tools, you’ll know which one you need to use when. You’ll also find out which one works best for your workflow — some people are mouse workers, while others like to do the lion’s share of their work on the keyboard. It’s all a matter of personal preference. As long as you get your edit done and done right, then no one’s going to judge how you did it.Want to speed up your edits and learn more Premiere keyboard shortcuts?

Teacher profile: Debraj MookerjeeTeacher profile: Debraj Mookerjee

first_imgKnown for his passion and zeal to teach, this 46 year old associate professor in literature at Ramjas College, University of Delhi is immensely popular for bringing alive the subject. Here is a chance to know the lighter side of Professor Debraj Mookerjee as he discusses life beyond the classroom with Devika Jeet.Beacon of light: I am very passionate about my work and take an interest in it. I treat each classroom as a zone where I am suppose to perform, just like actor or cricketer, I enter my zone and try and give my best performance. I am like an open book in class and my child like curiosity helps the flow of ideas and discussions.Choice beyond doubt: In 1989, I got into this profession and decided on this line of work. When I tried to look 20 years ahead, I saw myself as a teacher and realised this was my calling. If not a teacher, I would want to be part of the media industry as I am told I am a good communicator. I would not have entered the private sector but might have considered sports.Ray of hope: The one thing I would want to change about the students is their conservative mindsets. Students need to move beyond the traditional ways of looking at things and need to open their minds. The youth needs to be more sensitive to social issues and show a greater level of interest in bringing change. A book I recommend for all students is J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye, a story that unravels assumptions.Beyond duty: I love photography and have a huge passion for taking pictures. I enjoy travelling and my favourite holiday destinations are Turkey and Goa. I enjoy tinkering with things, reading, writing. I like travel writing. I like thinking, conceptualising and at the cost of sounding like an amateur sociologist I would say, life is a hobby for me.Soul passion: I love listening to all kinds of music. I enjoy devotional music from all parts of the world. Listening to music is a very private experience for me. It moves me and takes me into a trance. It makes me cry also. I don’t like discussing or sharing my music with anyone. I don’t talk about it. I have a deep love for music and the reverence of religion in my life is given to music.My inspiration: I have had various inspirations throughout life but I can’t pin-point at one person. At different stages of life different things have inspired me. In third year of college, I read The Agony and the Ecstasy by Irving Stone which really moved me. Jesus and Mahatma Gandhi have had counter intrusive theories and were able to merge morality with politics. Being an atheist I am inspired by their thoughts and ideas and look at them as people.A revolution in education: Indians are good consumers of knowledge but not good producers. Out of the box thinking is not promoted and there is not much focus on innovation, which is the trigger to produce knowledge. Here primary education is free but because of its quality people opt for private educational institutes, whereas at the university level the government institutes are considered better than the private ones. Good quality free universal education is imperative as young people want jobs with employable skills and the ultimate skill lies in good schooling.advertisementlast_img read more

India vs Australia: MS Dhoni hits 1st ODI fifty since December 2017India vs Australia: MS Dhoni hits 1st ODI fifty since December 2017

first_imgAustralia vs India, 1st ODIFull Scorecard MS Dhoni hit his first half-century in 13 months as India continued to fight in the first ODI of a three-match series against Australia in Sydney. Playing his 50th ODI against Australia, Dhoni walked out to bat when India were in deep trouble at 4 for 3 before stitching up a crucial partnership with Rohit Sharma for the fourth wicket.Dhoni had a poor run in 2018 when he scored only 275 runs with a best of 42 not out against South Africa in Johannesburg on February 10. Despite a sensational time in the 2018 IPL, MS Dhoni struggled in international cricket and was even booed during the second ODI against England at Lord’s where he ploughed his way to 42 in a steep chase.Dhoni now has 68 half-centuries from 333 ODIs. On Saturday, he also became the fifth batsman to score 10,000 ODI runs for India when he got off the mark with a single.Dhoni was out for 51 off 96 balls when Behrendorff trapped him LBW with a fuller delivery on the stumps.India are out of reviews and Dhoni has to go… #CloseMatters#AUSvIND | @GilletteAU pic.twitter.com/WRYVQPxwIMcricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 12, 2019India vs Australia 1st ODI in Sydney – Live ScoreExperts have called for MS Dhoni to play first-class cricket to regain his form ahead of the World Cup but the World Cup-winning captain has stayed away from domestic cricket. On Saturday, Dhoni looked a little rusty in the early stages of his innings but showed his class with a huge six off Nathan [email protected] brings up his 68th ODI FIFTY #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/EilrChK5eZBCCI (@BCCI) January 12, 2019Dhoni’s form over the last couple of years have raised several questions but skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri have stood strongly behind the former captain.It was a typically gutsy Dhoni innings. Sunil Gavaskar had told India Today he expected Dhoni to work singles, twos and threes on the large-sized ground and that is exactly what he did. MS Dhoni waited for his chances and was unfazed even as the asking rate climbed up.This knock must bring a sigh of relief for MS Dhoni, who had last scored a half-century against Sri Lanka on December 10, 2017. He had scored 65 even as India were bowled out for 112 on a green pitch in Dharamsala.MS Dhoni, for long India’s first choice-wicketkeeper across formats, retired from Test cricket in December 2014. Recently, Dhoni has been under pressure with the emergence of Rishabh Pant, who made his Test debut against England, scored a hundred in only his third Test match.Against West Indies at home, Pant scored 92 in each Test before smashing 350 runs and taking 20 catches in the four-Test series against Australia.Also Read | Rohit Sharma hits fifty in 1st innings after becoming a dadAlso Read | Bhuvneshwar Kumar 4th slowest Indian to reach 100 ODI wicketsAlso Read | Rayudu comes on to bowl, questions raised on the legality of his actionlast_img read more
