After watching Klay Thompson light up the Knicks for 43 points Tuesday night, maybe it’s time for Steve Kerr and his staff to deliver a pointed message to the Warriors star: Don’t dribble the ball.We were reminded what a devastating weapon Thompson can be when his offensive game just consists of moving, catching the ball and shooting it. He dribbled the ball just four times while making 18 of his 29 shots in the Warriors’ 122-95 win over the Knicks.That’s not a typo. Four. Dribbles.Can’t …
28 August 2012Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa (FMCSA) has created 800 jobs in response to strong demand for increased production of its Ford Ranger pickup truck, which begins on 3 September.Training of employees to fill the extra positions at the company’s Silverton assembly plant in Pretoria and its Struandale engine plant outside Port Elizabeth began in June.This follows last year’s R3.4-billion transformation and upgrade of Ford’s South African manufacturing and assembly plants to produce and export its new Rangers to 148 countries, mainly in Africa and Europe.The Struandale plant expanded its annual production capacity to 75 000 engines and 220 000 engine component kits, and is the only Ford facility to share both component machining and engine assembly for the Duratorq TDCi diesel engine programme which supports the Ford Ranger.“In order to meet continued strong demand in South Africa and abroad, we are adding shifts to our operations, creating jobs and confirming our commitment to South Africa,” FMCSA chief executive officer Jeff Nemeth said in a statement.“We invested significantly to transform our operations, and it is our strong belief that these jobs have the power to transform people’s lives as well.”Nemeth said it enabled the empowerment of local communities which Ford operated in.“The main objective of training the potential new employees is to give trainees a better understanding of our industry and equip them with the necessary skills to take up positions in the plant and start building world-class Rangers,” he said.“Our enthusiasm for technical innovation is always tempered by our responsibility to the vehicle, to our customers and their safety.“We’re investing in the continuous training and education of our employees. Each one of the 800 potential new employees underwent comprehensive pre-employment assessment prior to the commencement of training.”Successful candidates were then given both classroom and on-the-job training to equip them to build the Ford Rangers.“As part of the One Ford plan, and to maintain a viable and strategic presence in southern Africa, we require a globally integrated supply chain and a highly trained workforce,” Nemeth said.“We are pleased with the investments in South Africa and we are committed to having world-class facilities and standards.”SAinfo reporter
25 September 2012South Africa should use the centenary of Alexandra to build a more united and prosperous country founded on the principle of ubuntu, President Jacob Zuma said as Johannesburg’s famous township marked 100 years of existence on Saturday.Alexandra was first proclaimed as a township for white workers who were removed from Johannesburg city centre in 1905. In 1912 the plots in Alexandra were sold to African and Coloured people with freehold rights, making the place a “native township”.“We must use this milestone to dedicate ourselves more than ever before to build a united and prosperous South Africa built on the foundation of ubuntu, dignity and respect,” Zuma said during Saturday’s celebrations at Alexandra Stadium.The President said the township oozed pride and resilience while it was also associated with well-known South Africans like Joe Modise and the Mahotela Queens.Stand up for rights ‘without losing dignity’South Africans needed to stand up for their rights without losing their dignity, he said. “South Africans are not hooligans, we are a nation of proud, respectful people who stand up for their rights and do so without losing their dignity and ubuntu.“We must promote this national pride as we don’t want the world to develop a wrong impression of South African people,” the President said, adding that societies needed to take stock and reflect at certain times.“We must not be shy to reflect on what has gone wrong within society in general,” Zuma said. “We’ve heard of shocking incidents of men raping little girls. This is not a society or nation we want.”The country needed to reflect on the causes of brutality and how this could be stopped, as the perpetrators came from within the community.“It’s a painful reality for every society to have to deal with, but we have to confront it. I believe we must have this discussion about the renewal of the social fibre of communities without delay.”‘Bring back culture of peaceful protest’Zuma urged society to bring back a culture of peaceful protest, of upholding the right to life.“The culture of violent protest which threatens lives and property have no place in a democratic society when people have a government that they can talk to through various structures. We cannot destroy that which we have built ourselves, and we cannot continue organising protests in which people die.”This, he said, called for serious reflection “among ourselves about the way in which we do things.”Zuma also warned against workers negotiating labour issues without labour unions.“Workers of Alex and anywhere in our country should not think that what happened in Marikana is the way to go. When workers chase away trade unions and negotiate their own deal with employers, that is a danger. Workers in the past didn’t have trade unions and they were not protected, they were victims of employers.”Earlier, Zuma visited the Nelson Mandela Yard Heritage Precinct to plant a tree. In 1940, Mandela left home in the Transkei and moved to Alexandra, where he found lodging with a local reverend before moving next door. The house, which had no water or electricity at the time, is on the corner of Richard Baloyi and 7th avenue.Source: SANews.gov.za
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Shelly Detwiler, berry farmer and dieticianI live with a dairy farmer and meat and milk are usually what’s for dinner at our house. However, I think for one meal a week, or better yet a serving daily, all us carnivores can think outside the box and enjoy beans and legumes, or pulses as they are called these days. Pulses are the edible seeds grown in pods that are harvested dry. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) recognizes 11 types of pulses: dry beans, dry broad beans, dry peas, chickpeas, cow peas, pigeon peas, lentils, Bambara beans, vetches, lupins and pulses nes (which is everything not in a before mentioned group).Experts will say they are environmentally friendly and sustainable. Those hot trendy terms are not why I like to recommend them. Pulses are low fat and high in fiber with plenty of protein. Research has shown that eating a half-cup to three-quarters of a cup of pulses per day can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol. This is beneficial in helping reduce your heart disease risk factors. As Paul and I age, these health benefits are the reason I am going to start adding some pulses into our daily meals.Pulses are easy to cook and prepare in any kitchen. We primarily used canned beans. We’ve tried many of the black, cannelloni, kidney, soybean, edamame, pinto, navy and lentils. This March for National Nutrition month, I may take a pulse food adventure and check out the availability and recipes of those seldom seen pulses in my kitchen. Not sure what flavors, textures and tastes I’ll discover but that’s why it’s an adventure. Join me on a foodie adventure outside your box this March and add some heart healthy pulses to your meals. The possibilities are endless!Eat well and healthy,Shelly Frijoles Negros…Black Beans (Pulses.org) 16 oz dried black beans (3-4 cans)2 cups chicken or beef stock1 green or red bell pepper, chopped3 tbsp vegetable oil1 large onion, chopped4 garlic cloves, minced2 tbsp molasses (or 3 tbsp dark brown sugar)1 tbsp cuminWorcestershire sauce4 slices baconsalt and pepper to taste Rinse beans and let them soak overnight in water. (If using canned, skip this step)Drain beans and cover with chicken or beef stock. Add chopped red pepper. Bring beans to a simmer and cook over low heat until tender.Cook bacon in a heavy skillet until crispy. Remove bacon from skillet and add the onion and garlic to the bacon fat. Cook over low heat until soft and translucent. Add the cumin and brown sugar to the onions and continue to cook until browned and soft. Once beans are tender, remove 2 cups of the cooked beans and process in a blender with the onion mixture. Add the blended beans and onion to the rest of the cooked beans. Season with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce to taste. Continue to cook beans until very tender. Add water if necessary, until desired texture is achieved.
