23 June 2014For South Africa to prosper and create jobs, it is crucial for the private sector to start investing more in the economy, says Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa.Speaking during a post-State of the Nation address interview with the SABC at the public broadcaster’s studios in Cape Town on Sunday, Ramaphosa said the government would do all it could to support big business by removing obstacles to doing business in the country.These included energy constraints and bureaucratic red tape, which business people had identified as hindering business development.Ramaphosa said South Africa’s energy constraints affected all role players in the economy, “and particularly business, or the private sector, that accounts for 70% of employment in our country. For as long as energy is constrained, we are not able to build the factories, to do all that we are willing to do.”In his State of the Nation Address last Tuesday, President Jacob Zuma identified the current low level of investment by the private sector as a key factor holding back the growth of the economy.“We are determined to work with the private sector to remove obstacles to investment,” Zuma said, adding: “We would like to see the private sector showing as much confidence in the economy as the public sector.”Ramaphosa said that what the President was saying was that “there has been an assertion that the private sector, at some stage, has gone on strike as far as investing further in our economy.“What he was essentially doing was making a call on the private sector, that we as government are showing enormous confidence in the economy of our country. We would like you to do likewise and invest in the economy.”Overcoming the ‘trust deficit’The Deputy President said it was important for the government and business to sit around one table on a regular basis in order to eliminate the “trust deficit” that had grown between the two.Last week, Zuma said he would soon convene the next meeting of the Presidential Business Working Group, adding that after the first meeting, held last year, “six work streams were established, and these have been discussing solutions to various obstacles to doing business in South Africa.”The issues had also been raised by company CEOs during three working sessions he had hosted in November and December, Zuma said.Ramaphosa said these meetings needed to continue, as one could never have enough engagements. “Relationships between people, organisations and countries are by their very nature fluid. They are not static, they are never written in stone.“So people need to meet continuously to renew their relationships, to look at agreements that they have arrived at to see whether those are still relevant, given the changing environment in which we live.“When the President says he wants to have a further meeting, we should not pour cold water on that initiative. We should see it as continued progress, because what it means is that people are engaging.”Source: SAnews.gov.za

Styled and cut and it was beautiful. Second wig i have bought and this is a nice colour. Matched the picture perfectly. Even though this is a synthetic wig i love it. The hair doesn’t even look noticeably fake strait away. The cap fits tightly and stays on easily. Easy to trim and fit to your hair line. Really good choice if you are wanting a new look for a night out or dressup. The wig is gorgeous, and comes in excellent packaging. However, it tangled after my first wear and every time i use it i have to spend an hour brushing out the tangles. I even have to keep the rollers when i’m not wearing it, or else it will tangle just sitting on the wig stand. Worth the money if you don’t mind the maintenance. Really nice wig and great quality for the price. Doesn’t really look like the picture tho – the red is not as vibrant and the wig itself is not that voluminous. Really hard to wear it like the picture too since the lace pics through.

A vehicle is stuck on a road at Gopalpur, Odisha. The Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System (RIMES) for Africa and Asia, a 45-nation international organisation on disaster warning, has termed ‘Titli’, the severe cyclonic storm that devastated Odisha in October, as ‘rarest cyclone’.“More than 200 years of cyclone track history in the Odisha coast reveals that the Titli cyclone is the rarest of rare in terms of its characteristics such as recurvature after landfall and retaining its destructive potential after landfall and recurvature away from the coastal areas for more than two days,” says RIMES in its latest report.Also Read A fisherman caught in the wind and rain as cyclone Titli makes landfall near Gopalpur coast. Cyclone Titli leaves behind a trail of misery in Odisha Fishermen take shelter near Gopalpur coast of Bay of Bengal Sea in Ganjam district of Odisha, 170 km away from Bhubaneswar. The UN-registered organisation said: “Considering the history of cyclone tracks, no synthetic track projection captures the Titli type of cyclones. The forecast information available lacks actionable early warning information such as no indication of occurrence of secondary hazards, including landslides far away from the coasts.”The severe cyclonic storm left more than 60 people dead, mainly due to land slide in interior Gajapati district. Odisha, which takes immense pride in disaster preparedness, was confounded in the wake of the damage to both life and property caused by Titli in interior districts.Earlier, India Meteorological Department had called the formation of Titli as a ‘rarest of rare’ occurrence. The severe cyclone had changed its path after landfall. A water-logged road in Aska town in Ganjam district of Odisha. Flood affected area of Aska town is seen from a Navy helicopter deployed for relief work in Ganjam district of Odisha. According to RIMES, the Odisha State Disaster Management Authority faced challenges in anticipating and managing Titli’s impact due to lack of impact-based actionable early warning information and prior experience not only in India but also elsewhere.“The OSDMA, by learning the lessons from Titli cyclone, could evolve measures to minimise impacts in both coastal and non-coastal regions more effectively in future,” it said.The international body said: “The State government actions linked to the cyclone-risk management are also heavily focused on the coastal areas where cyclones cross at their peak intensities. Therefore, coastal areas now have been largely well managed through evacuations and other protocols, leading to zero casualties in these areas.”“The highest number of casualties occurred in a village called Baraghara in Gajapati district due to landslides. People did not evacuate, as the risk is unknown and also not expected. There was no pin-pointed forecast available what will happen where,” it said.The RIMES has recommended that a detailed risk assessment has to be carried out for Odisha to understand the risks in the light of the Titli devastation.
