The country 21 years on in ’28UP South Africa’

first_img29 November 2013Twenty-one years ago, for ITV’s award-winning TV documentary series 7UP South Africa, director Angus Gibson filmed a cross-section of the country’s seven-year-old children and asked them about their lives, hopes and dreams.He’s filmed the children every seven years since: first for 14UP, then 21UP and now, as adults, for 28UP. The full series premieres on Al Jazeera English on Friday.The South African show is a spin-off from British director Michael Apted’s multi-award-winning UP series, which is on the British Film Institute’s list of the greatest British TV shows.“The premise of the series is taken from the Jesuit motto, ‘Give me a child until he is seven and I will give you the man’,” says Paul Eedle, director of programming at Al Jazeera English. “The South African version is fascinating, because it shows the country’s transformation as well as the children’s.”The series follows the twists and turns of the children’s lives from 1992, two years after Nelson Mandela was released from prison and two years before he became South Africa’s first democratically elected president.“In the first film, 7UP, apartheid still defined the country’s social divisions,” says Gibson, who directed the breakthrough South African TV series Yizo Yizo.“The children only understood life from the perspective of their own segregated part of society, so Patrick in an affluent suburb of Cape Town could know nothing of Thembisile’s life in Soweto.“Seven years later, when the film crew returned, they were teenagers in a new South Africa,” Gibson continues. “At 21, the political struggle had given them chances their parents were denied, but the biggest battle was the war against Aids – and not all of them have survived. Now, at 28, they have entered the adult world, and one of them has even become a Springbok rugby player.”Al Jazeera has acquired all previous South Africa: UP programmes and has created an eight-episode series following the group from their seventh year through to the present, three-episode 28UP production. This retrospective will include never-seen-before footage from the earlier shoots.ITV’s Jonathan Levi and Al Jazeera English’s Ingrid Falck are the series executive producers and Jemma Jupp the producer and co-director. 28UP South Africa is a co-production between The Shiver, ITV Studios and Al Jazeera English.South Africa: UP screens in South Africa on Fridays at 10pm, Saturdays at 2pm, Sundays at 3am, and Mondays at 8am.Source: National Film and Video Foundationlast_img read more

We hope to show you the “geo-who” behind the “geo-what”. 🙂What is your name? Erin Yeah, but what’s your Username? OceansazulErin geocaching in the spring time!How did you come up with your username? I’ve always had an affinity with the ocean and my zodiac sign, pisces. Besides “Erin” and “Ocean” were already taken. “Azul” means blue in Spanish (which I speak), so Oceansazul just fit. What is your job title? Guest Experience CoordinatorWhat does your job title actually mean? In other words, how do you explain what you do to someone that has no idea what you do? Geocaching is headquartered in Seattle, where we are lucky enough to meet visitors from all over the world. During HQ visits, people talk all things geocaching, discover rare and cool trackables, find the HQ geocache, take some photos, ask questions, learn more, and even get some cool geocaching merchandise. It’s fun for me too because I love to laugh and I like to make other people laugh – but many people tell me I have a dry sense of humor. If you come tell me a funny story I will give you candy! Erin is Geocaching HQ’s Guest Experience Coordinator. Need we say more?Tell us about your geocaching style (exotic locations / quality over quantity)?  I don’t have a ton of finds, but I have found geocaches in a lot of states and a few countries. I love the creativity and what people come up with. I like to cache whenever I travel, I like taking newbies on their first geocache adventure, and I also love to Night Cache. There’s a Night Cache in my hometown of Puyallup that’s really cool because it’s a Multi-Cache, and I took my dad caching there. He had a blast. I just like the whole experience.Erin and friends in Kyoto, JapanWhat’s something that surprises you about geocaching – whether it’s the game itself, working at headquarters, or anything else?  The endless creativity of brilliant people. Geocachers come up with the most amazing hides. One that comes to mind is the second cache I ever found. It was a huge fallen log on the side of the trail, about three feet in diameter. But something in the middle of it looked “off”. I pulled a piece of log on the side, and it pulled out of the log. The geocache was a disguised piece of PVC pipe with part of the log on the top as the cap. I thought, “This game is incredible!” and I was hooked. That was five years ago.Erin and other Geocaching HQ employees hit the slopes for our annual snow day!What’s the best piece of geocaching advice or information you ever learned? Hmm… Take a step back and look again. And then, look again.last_img read more

Are You the Primary Value Creator?

first_imgThis post was written as part of the IBM for Midsize Business program, which provides midsize businesses with the tools, expertise and solutions they need to become engines of a smarter planet. I’ve been compensated to contribute to this program, but the opinions expressed in this post are my own and don’t necessarily represent IBM’s positions, strategies or opinions.You likely have more work on your to-do list than you can possibly complete today. Or this week. Or this month. In fact, if your to-do list is anything like mine, then crossing something off the list (or, in my case, checking the complete box in Omnifocus) has the strange of effect of causing two items to take the place of the one you just completed. But some of the work on your to-do list doesn’t really belong to you.Here is the one question you can ask yourself to know whether the work belongs to you, or whether you should give it to its real owner.The Test for All WorkThe one question you need to ask yourself before you commit to doing the work is this: “Am I the primary value creator for this work?”If you are the person that needs to create the unique value necessary to completing some task, then by all means, do that work. But for a lot of tasks on your to-do list, you aren’t the primary value creator. Someone else should really being doing that work because they can add more value to the work than you can. Or someone else should be doing because it really belongs to them. In this case, you’re probably only doing the work because you’ve rationalized it by telling yourself that by the time you trained someone, you could have done it yourself. Or maybe you’ve told yourself the big lie that there is no one can do the work as well as you can.If you aren’t the primary value creator, you should give the work to the person that does create that unique and special value. Give the work to its rightful owner. By giving away the work in which you aren’t the primary value creator, you free yourself to do your real work, the work that only you can create the unique and special value required.QuestionsFor what work are you the primary value creator?What work on your to-do list really belongs to someone else?How do you determine when and what work to delegate?How do you invest the time teaching others to do work so you can delegate it completely in the future?

Steph Curry’s 38 points lead Warriors to Game 1 win over Clippers

first_imgMOST READ Los Angeles played in the final regular-season game at Oracle, then the first playoff game of the last postseason run before the Warriors move to San Francisco and new Chase Center later this year.COUSINS’ NIGHTDeMarcus Cousins fouled out with 7:16 left. He scored nine points in his playoff debut after a nine-year wait and nearly year-long comeback from last January’s devastating torn left Achilles tendon that required surgery.Cousins, who played his first game of the season Jan. 18 at the Clippers, missed twice on the Warriors’ initial three possessions but dunked in between those two. Regularly left wide open on the perimeter, Cousins knocked down a 3 from the top at 9:11.He had nine rebounds and four assists.POISESteve Kerr challenged the Warriors — not to mention himself with a self-acknowledged temper — to be more disciplined yelling at the officials. Green was knocked down by Beverley on a no-call early and became enraged but avoided a technical.“Fans need to understand, it wouldn’t be possible to officiate the games the exact same way in the playoffs as the regular season. The games would take four hours,” Kerr said. Draymond Green got Golden State going by making all five of his shots in the first quarter on the way to 17 points to go with seven assists and seven rebounds, while Durant scored 23 points as the Warriors ran their postseason winning streak to seven games.On one of his marvelous 3s, the two-time MVP knocked one down from way back late in the third, nearly did the splits in the air and landed on his behind — still smiling all the while.Montrezl Harrell scored 26 points and fellow reserve Lou Williams contributed 25 points and nine assists as Los Angeles returned to the playoffs after missing last season following six straight appearances.Beverley, who missed last Sunday’s 131-104 loss at Oracle because of a right hip pointer and was booed during pregame introductions, didn’t score in the first half and wound up with three points on 1-for-7 shooting, seven assists and seven rebounds.He and Durant received double-technicals with 5 minutes left before they got into it again.ADVERTISEMENT Philippine Arena Interchange inaugurated Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Curry shot 8 for 12 from deep to pass Ray Allen (385) for career postseason 3s with 386, had a postseason career-high 15 rebounds, seven assists and the 31st 30-point postseason performance of his career.Perhaps this old, heated rivalry still has all the testiness of years past — just with new faces all around.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsThese teams are meeting for just the second time in the postseason after the Clippers took a seven-game, first-round series in 2014 when the California franchises had a deep dislike for each other.Game 2 is Monday night back at Oracle Arena.

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)OAKLAND, Calif. — Stephen Curry scored 38 points and made eight 3-pointers to give him the most in postseason history, and the top-seeded Golden State Warriors began their quest for a three-peat by running away from the frustrated Los Angeles Clippers for a 121-104 victory in their playoff opener Saturday on a night tempers flared.Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley were ejected with 4:41 to go, just 19 seconds after they received double-technicals when Durant stripped Beverley and the Clippers guard fell into the scorer’s table. They both became enraged again and official Ed Malloy immediately sent them both to the locker room.

Navy Leverages Value of Prime San Diego Real Estate to Obtain New

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The developer of a $1.4 billion, once-in-a-lifetime project to transform eight blocks of San Diego’s waterfront expects to break ground this fall, starting with a new state-of-the-art headquarters for Navy Region Southwest and other Navy tenants being built through a public-private venture originally conceived more than 30 years ago. In return for a 373,000-square-foot headquarters at no out-of-pocket cost, the Navy granted the Manchester Financial Group a 99-year lease for the remaining seven parcels of the 15-acre Navy Broadway Complex, a site it has occupied since the 1920s. The developer’s master plan totals 2.9 million square feet and, in addition to the Navy’s 17-story office building, includes a five-star boutique hotel, a 1,140-room convention hotel and 1.1 million square feet of Class A office space, along with retail and other amenities.A case study of the redevelopment project, since named Manchester Pacific Gateway, will be featured as one of six “Innovators” at next week’s Installation Innovation 2018 in San Diego.

Turos Carculator lets you see potential earnings from renting your ride

first_img Earnings Volkswagen 1 36 Photos More From Roadshow Car Culture Share your voice Volkswagen Peer-to-peer car sharing — Airbnb for cars, essentially — is a relatively new concept, and its biggest proponent right now is Turo. If you’ve thought about joining the service, but weren’t sure what kind of money could or couldn’t be made, Turo now has a tool for that.Turo’s “Carculator” (clever name) is pretty straightforward — plug in a year, make, model and location, and it will spit out your possible potential earnings with an estimate of how often it would be rented out. It calculates this estimate by looking at data from rentals that have already happened, so it’s not just pulling figures from thin air.Enlarge ImageConsidering my station wagon isn’t exactly an objet d’art, I’m not surprised its earnings potential is lower than the examples Turo provided in this image. Turo If the number is hilariously low, perhaps you won’t get much out of renting on Turo, but if you have a highly sought-after car, it might replace your pupils with dollar signs, cartoon-style.As a quick example, I looked up my personal car, a 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen SEL. Detroit wasn’t listed as a location, so I just used the national average. According to that information (with my specific trim selected), my VW could earn $551 per month, which is slightly under my monthly payment. That number is calculated based on a possible $41 in earnings per day spent rented, and the Carculator estimated I’d be able to pawn my wagon off on people about 13 days each month.Of course, that won’t work for me, because the car is tied up in daily commutes every weekday, but when it comes to sports cars and other vehicles that are only used occasionally, it could very well be a solid stream of supplemental income.center_img 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Comment 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value 2018 Volkswagen Golf Sportwagen gushes with value 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Tagslast_img read more
