20 April 2009South African surfer Grant “Twiggy” Baker won two categories in the Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards at a ceremony in California on Friday night.He received the Billabong XXL Biggest Wave award for a ride on a wave measured at 20 metres (61-feet) at Tafelberg Reef near Hout Bay in Cape Town in August 2008. Baker also collected the Surfline Best Overall Performance award for his dedication in pursuing huge surf and competing in big wave events all over the world during the past 12 months.In addition, he was also nominated for the Monster Paddle Award, while his tow partner, Californian Greg Long, who towed Baker into the wave at Tafelberg, won the premier Billabong XXL Ride of the Year award and US$50 000 (around R450 000) for his incredible tube ride on a 10-metre wave at nearby Dungeons during the Red Bull Big Wave Africa event in July 2008.Ride of the YearOf all the entries in the Ride of the Year Category, Long’s was the only wave ridden without the assistance of a PWC (jet-ski). Paddling into a monster Dungeons peak and banking off the bottom into a huge tube ride, Long walked a fine line between glory and the punishing of a lifetime, before being spat out into the channel.“I am glad to have won this as a paddle in wave and without a PWC, because most recognized big wave surfers will tell you this is the most difficult of the two,” said Long. “To catch a wave on your own power is an unbelievable feeling.”Baker earned $15 000 (around R140 000), a Honda Aquatrax personal watercraft, and an HSA (high surf accessory) sled for his XXL Biggest Wave, and a further $5 000 for the Overall Performance award.Cape Town-based photographers Alan van Gysen and Brenton Geach and video company Fixerfilm/Hutchmotion shared $4 000 for providing the images that determined the XXL Biggest Wave winner, and Fixerfilm/Red Bull BWA scooped the $5 000 for the video footage for Long’s Ride of the Year.‘It is an amazing feeling’Speaking after picking up his two awards, Baker said: “When you look at my eyes right now, you can see that I am pretty pumped. Yeah, it is an amazing feeling, not just to myself, but also to my family back home in South Africa.”Baker’s tow-in assisted ride, which took the Biggest Wave Award at 61 feet, is claimed to be the biggest wave ever tackled in South Africa.“The whole experience is not just satisfying for me personally but to see South Africa up there, to see Dungeons up there, seeing James Taylor up there, overall to put South Africa on the map is most satisfying for me,” Baker said.The Best Overall Performance Award came from his outstanding rides during big wave swell events in South Africa, California, Chile, Europe and Mexico over the past year.‘An honour’“It is an honour to win Best Overall Performance and to be the first South African to do it,” he said.The annual Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards recognise the biggest and most powerful waves ridden over the past 12 months, as judged by a global panel of 250 surf industry members, former pros and big wave specialists. They are commonly referred to as the Academy Awards of surfing.Over 2 000 people packed the Grove Theatre in Anaheim to witness mind-blowing rides from Chile, Europe, South Africa, Australia, Mexico, California and French Polynesia.BILLABONG XXL RIDE OF THE YEAR AWARDSWINNER $50 000: Greg Long (USA) at Dungeons, South Africa on July 26, 2008($5,000 Video by Fixerfilm/RedBull BWA)SECOND $5 000: Ryan Hipwood (Australia) at Shipstern Bluff, Tasmania on October 11, 2008(Video by Tim Bonython)THIRD $1 500: James Holmer-Cross (Australia) at Shipstern Bluff, Tasmania on October 11, 2008(Video by Dave Otto)FOURTH $1 500: Garrett McNamara (Hawaii) at Teahupoo, Tahiti on April 8, 2008(Video by Simon Saffigna)FIFTH $1 500: Brian Conley (USA) at Boca Grande, Mexico on October 22, 2008(Video by Brian Conley)BILLABONG XXL BIGGEST WAVE AWARD(Surfer prize $15 000 and a Honda Aquatrax watercraft with HSA sled – Photo/video prize $4,000)Grant Baker (South Africa) at Tafelberg Reef, South Africa on August 9, 2008(Photo by Brenton Geach.

1 November 2013 South Africa has held steady in the World Bank’s annual scorecard on the ease of doing business around the world, released this week. The country was ranked 41st out of 189 economies around the world surveyed by the World Bank, which judges countries on 10 criteria that measure the time, cost and hassle involving in doing business. The World Bank’s 2014 report, titled Doing Business: Understanding Regulations for Small and Medium-Size Enterprises, sheds light on how easy (or difficult) it is for a local entrepreneur to open and run a small to medium-sized business when complying with the relevant regulations.How South Africa fared South Africa received points for its tax reforms, with its rating for paying taxes moving up two points to 24. The government made paying taxes easier for companies by replacing the secondary tax on companies with a dividend borne by shareholders. South Africa’s “distance to frontier” score also inched up in the rankings, to 70.93%. This measure represents the distance of each economy from the best performance observed on each of the topics. The country remains a strong performer when it comes to protecting investors (10), especially in the category “allowing access to all corporate documents before a trial”. Getting credit is becoming slightly more difficult in South Africa, however, with the country’s ranking dropping four places to 28th. South Africa is ranked at an impressive 39 for dealing with construction permits, and starting a business is also easier (53). The report notes that the country has lowered its registration fees and has substantially reduced its notary fees. Together with its Sub-Saharan partners, South Africa made progress in trading across borders, with its ranking improving four places to 106. Getting electricity in the country remains weak, however, at 150. While relatively simple procedurally, it takes too long at an average of 226 days, and is too expensive, the report finds. Global increase in regulatory reform The pace of business regulation reform in the past year has picked up, with 114 economies enacting 238 reforms, against 108 economies and 201 reforms in 2011-12. “This year, we see a higher number of reforms – 18% more – the second-highest number since the financial crisis,” said Rita Ramalho, programme manager for Doing Business at the World Bank Group. “This pick-up in pace of regulatory reform is good news particularly for small and medium-size businesses – the main job creators in many parts of the world.” In Africa, 66% of countries enacted at least one reform last year, against 33% in 2005. Nine African countries are among the top 20 most improved in terms of business regulations since 2009: Benin, Burundi, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, and Togo. Rwanda, in fact, rates as the most improved country worldwide since 2005. Sub-Saharan Africa is home to nine of the 20 economies narrowing the gap with the regulatory frontier, the most since 2009. Low-income economies narrowed this gap twice as much as high-income economies did, the World Bank says. Singapore retained its No 1 spot in the overall rankings for the eighth straight year. Hong Kong, New Zealand, the US, Denmark, Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, Georgia, Norway and the UK make up the top 10 countries with the most business-friendly regulatory environments. Reuters reports that an independent panel set up by the World Bank and headed by South Africa’s planning minister, Trevor Manuel, has recommended that the practice of ranking be scrapped because it can too easily be affected by small factors and is sometimes not objective. However, the World Bank says the ratings should be considered in the broader context of how much countries have improved their business regulations, and should not be taken as representative of every factor that impacts economic growth. “Doing Business is not about less regulation but about better regulation,” the World Bank says in the report.

4 February 2014Former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, in Johannesburg on Monday for the C40 Cities Mayors Summit, announced a US$10-million initiative to support pan-African business and financial journalism and advance transparency, accountability and governance on the continent.The Bloomberg Media Initiative Africa, a three-year pan-African programme to build media capacity, convene international leaders and improve access to information on the continent, will initially focus on Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa, financial news agency Bloomberg said on Monday.“Timely and accurate reporting of business and financial matters play a critical role in advancing efficient markets and is a key driver in supporting economic and social growth,” the agency said in a statement. “Strengthening business and economic news coverage, expanding training programmes for journalists and providing greater access to reliable data about Africa are frequently cited as important enablers to the continent’s continued development.”The initiative will provide cross-disciplinary education programmes and mid-career fellowships to increase the number of highly trained business and financial journalists, convene pan-African forums to examine worldwide media best practices, and support research to stimulate media innovations.The former New York mayor and philanthropist, who founded the agency, said the initiative would “foster collaboration, support professional growth and nurture the leaders who are contributing to the continent’s very bright future”.In developing and delivering its educational programmes, Bloomberg will partner with the University of Nairobi’s School of Journalism and Mass Communications and the Strathmore Business School in Kenya; the University of Lagos’s Department of Mass Communications and the Pan Atlantic University’s Lagos Business School in Nigeria; and Rhodes University’s School of Journalism and Media Studies and the University of Pretoria’s Gordon Institute of Business Science in South Africa.“The Bloomberg Media Initiative Africa is not only topical, timely, relevant and useful, but it is also contemporary both in structural and conceptual pluralism,” said Dr Ralph Akinfeleye, professor of journalism at the University of Lagos. “By providing rigorous training from best-in-class faculty, media professionals and other stakeholders from the south, east and west African countries, the initiative will positively impact transparency, accountability, good governance and sustainable economic growth on the continent.”Bloomberg said it also plans to collaborate with the Ibrahim Foundation, as well as international institutions such as UN Economic Commission for Africa and the African Development Bank, on a feasibility study to explore a platform for accessible, comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date economic data and information to promote African development.SAinfo reporter
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Lake Erie anglers should experience another year of diverse fishing opportunities in 2016, according to Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).Lake Erie walleye and yellow perch fisheries are managed through an interagency quota system that involves Ontario, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio. Each jurisdiction regulates its catches to comply with quotas and minimize the risk of over-fishing these species. Quotas for the upcoming fishing season are determined through consensus agreement by these jurisdictions through the Lake Erie Committee of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, which were just recently announced for 2016.As a result of the 2016 quota allocation, the walleye daily bag limit is four, and the yellow perch daily bag limit is 30 per angler in Ohio waters of Lake Erie until April 30. The daily bag limit will be six walleye from May 1 through Feb. 28, 2017. From March 1, 2017 through April 30, 2017, the daily walleye bag limit will be four. A 15-inch minimum size limit is in effect during the entire season for walleye. The yellow perch daily bag limit will be 30 from May 1 through April 30, 2017, with no minimum size limit. Lake Erie anglers can find walleye and yellow perch bag limit information at ODNR offices, in special publications at bait and tackle shops and at wildohio.gov.Walleye Ohio walleye anglers will catch fish mostly from the 2014 and 2013 hatches, with some fish from the 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009 year classes. Additional fish from 2007 and 2003 will also be harvested by anglers. Walleye from the average 2014 hatch will range from 15-18 inches, while walleye from the 2013 hatch will be between 16-20 inches. Fish from the 2003 and 2007 hatches are likely to carry most of the Central Basin fisheries, and a good number of these walleye will be over the 26-inch range. Large walleye from strong hatch in 2003 will continue to provide “Fish Ohio” opportunities (greater than 28 inches), with this year class nearing the size that may give Ohio a new state record walleye. Additionally, in 2016, anglers should see a number of smaller (less than 15 inches) fish from the excellent 2015 hatch. Anglers are reminded of the 15-inch minimum size limit and encouraged to release these fish with as little handling as possible so they can contribute to the fisheries in future years.Yellow Perch Expect good perch fishing in 2016, with improving numbers of fish in the Western Basin and the largest fish in the eastern areas of the Central Basin. Perch anglers should encounter fish ranging from 7 to 13 inches from the 2014 through 2008 hatches this year, with major contributions from the 2014, 2011 and 2008 year classes. Fish from the average-to-better hatches in 2007 will contribute fish in the 10-plus inch range. “In 2015, yellow perch fisheries flourished in the eastern portions of Ohio’s Lake Erie, and we expect this trend to continue into 2016,” said Tyson.Black Bass Smallmouth bass fishing in 2016 is expected to be fair but improving. Smallmouth bass catch rates decreased in 2015, when compared to 2014, but are still the highest observed since the mid-1990s. Smallmouth bass should be an excellent size (14 to 22 inches and weighing up to six pounds). The best fishing for smallmouth bass will continue to be in areas with good bottom structure, which is the available habitat across much of the entire Ohio nearshore and islands. Continuing the trend from previous years, largemouth bass fishing should be excellent in 2016. This emerging fishery is producing high catch rates and some large fish in nearshore areas and harbors across Ohio’s Lake Erie. All black bass (smallmouth and largemouth) must be immediately released from May 1 through June 24. Beginning June 25, the daily bag limit for bass will be five, with a 14-inch minimum length limit.Steelhead Steelhead anglers should enjoy another year of great fishing in 2016 in Ohio’s Lake Erie open waters and in tributaries. Peak summer steelhead action on Lake Erie can be found offshore from June through August between Vermilion and Conneaut, with catches measuring 17 to 29 inches. Most Lake Erie anglers troll for steelhead in deep waters using spoons with divers or downriggers until fish move close to shore in the fall. The daily bag limit remains at five fish per angler from May 16 through Aug. 31, and two fish per angler between Sept. 1 and May 15, 2017. A 12-inch minimum size limit is in effect throughout the year.White Bass White bass continue to provide excellent seasonal fishing opportunities in the Maumee and Sandusky rivers and in the open lake. The 2016 catch will be dominated by fish from the 2012 and 2010 year classes. A few fish from the 2007 hatch could be as large as 16 inches. Anglers should focus on major Western Basin tributaries during May and June and nearshore areas of the open lake during the summer. There is no white bass daily bag limit or size limit.Other Species Bays, harbors and main lake shorelines offer excellent fishing for panfish, as well as occasional northern pike and muskellunge in vegetated areas.Anglers are reminded that fishing conditions on Lake Erie can change hourly, and adjustments are often necessary to improve success. Anglers should take into account factors such as water temperature, cloud cover, water clarity, boat traffic, wave action, structure, currents and the amount of baitfish in the area. Anglers are also reminded to carefully monitor Lake Erie weather and to seek safe harbor before storms approach.
Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A “note” in Evernote can be text only, or it can include photos, audio or other attachments. Notes come with some metadata like date and time, and mobile notes also grab your precise location. You can also add metadata like the URL from which you grabbed some bit of Web content or the author of the stuff you’re saving.Evernote allows for two levels of organization of individual notes. Notes can be grouped together inside notebooks, and notebooks can be combined into a stack.There are also a couple of tricks. You can tag notes, which lets you create associations between notes within a notebook or in different notebooks. You can also save searches, which allows you to quickly find all notes containing multiple specific tags, or just the ones that contain a specific word or phrase.And if the core capabilities of Evernote aren’t enough for you, there are all kinds of applications built on top of it to extend the service.So Evernote is clearly powerful. But what can you do with it?Evernote Is Your Digital Desk DrawerI learned to organize a computer’s storage drive based on the metaphor of a “desktop.” The digital desktop might be a foreign concept to kids who are born today, but it still applies. If the stuff on my computer is on my desktop, then Evernote is my desk drawers. It’s the place I organize and stash stuff I need so it’s out of the way but accessible any time.That’s still too vague. Here’s what I really do with it. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market I recently set up IFTTT triggers to watch these two Instagram feeds and save my photos to Evernote automatically. There’s a bug on IFTTT’s side that causes these notes not to display thumbnails in Evernote, which is annoying, but IFTTT says it’s working on fixing it. “Clips” is a stack I use for articles I’ve written that I want to save for posterity. The Evernote Web Clipper is pretty great about preserving the exact formatting of a Web page in an Evernote note, so I grab the posts I want to save with that. Inside the “Clips” stack, I have a notebook from every site I publish to, plus one for miscellaneous clips. “Culture” is where I keep lists of books, images, movies and music I want to keep track of. I’m sure I’ll add more notebooks to this stack as I think of more types of media. For the most part, the notes in here are names of individual books, films, albums or whatever that I need to visit or revisit. “Home” is a big one. I keep track of my work and finance documents here, as well as errands, recipes and manuals, people (and Evernote Hello contacts), and other various domestic things. Since some sensitive information is kept here, I take advantage of Evernote’s cool ability to encrypt highlighted text, so it asks for a password before anyone can view it. I passcode-lock sensitive PDFs before I put them in Evernote.Finally, as I mentioned in my Uber-Geek’s Guide to Reading Online, I use Evernote to archive the Web articles I want to keep around forever. The “Library” stack contains notebooks named for the various genres of things I read. I clip articles to it in a variety of ways described in the guide. My hope is that this will let me read the digital writings I love long after their Web links break. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting First, I created an “@Inbox” notebook. I came up with this on my own, but I vastly improved the idea with a trick I learned from Brett Kelly’s helpful e-book, Evernote Essentials: I added the @ glyph to the name. The @ symbol makes sure that the Inbox stays at the top of the notebooks in alphabetical order.I set @Inbox as my default notebook, so when I send anything to Evernote and don’t have the time to file it, it ends up in @Inbox. This is especially crucial for quick, mobile tasks. That way, I can make a note quickly and put my phone away, and when I’m back on the desktop, I can do the organizing later.I have created seven stacks for categories of digital stuff broad enough to cover just about everything. If I need a miscellaneous notebook for something that doesn’t fit, it goes in a stack called “Archive.” In my desk metaphor, stacks are the drawers. Here are a couple examples to give you a sense of what constitutes a whole stack and what makes for a specific notebook.My Notebook Stacks“Archive” is a catch-all place for notes that need no other category, but I also use it for pure storage, as opposed to notes I’m changing and editing constantly.I decided to use Evernote to archive all my Instagram photos as well as those I like. I think it’s important to have this backup, because Instagram doesn’t let you scroll all the way back in your likes history, and moreover, who knows how long Instagram will be around. Evernote shows thumbnails of images attached to notes, so this is a nice way to browse. Evernote is many things to many people because it’s so powerful. But for the same reason, Evernote’s purpose is vague enough that it can be hard to get started with it. First, you have to figure out what it can do for you. Here’s a guide to how to think about Evernote, so you can get better at using it.What Is Evernote?Evernote is an application that lets you create notes that sync between all your devices. On your desktop, all your notes are files on your computer that can be easily found using the operating system’s file management features. On touchscreen devices, Evernote’s standalone app lets you view and edit all your notes as well as capture new ones using text, camera or microphone. It’s also in the browser, letting you clip things from the Web straight into your notebooks.Evernote has amazing search powers. Not only can it find notes that contain text, it uses optical character recognition on images, so you can just take pictures of text (receipts, signs, papers, anything), and Evernote will be able to find it for you.The free version is already pretty powerful, but for $45.00 per year, you can upload up to 1GB per month, attach up to 50MB of just about anything to an individual note, you can go back in time and view past versions of notes, search inside PDFs and more. My favorite premium feature is offline notebooks. You can access and edit notes without an Internet connection, and any changes you make will sync when you’re back online. Tags:#How To#web Related Posts Tags & Saved SearchesI use tags sparingly. I don’t want to get too lost in them. I have a couple of projects that need greater organization than the two layers Evernote provides. Basically, within one notebook, I need to mark some notes as to-do and some notes as done, so I use tags for that. Another good example is “errands,” which I use for any note that contains a task I have to do, which can be in any category.The rarest thing I need to do is save a search, but I do that sometimes. Right now, I’m preparing for Burning Man, so I saved the search for any note that is tagged Burning Man and errands, so I can quickly jump to only those tasks. When Burning Man is over, I’ll delete that search.Extend Evernote With Other AppsThe Evernote app is good enough for most general tasks, but there are many things to capture with Evernote that are much improved by a tailor-made interface. The best example is Evernote’s own standalone moble app, Hello, which provides a quick and easy interface for remembering people you meet.Hello guides you through entering some contact info and taking a quick picture, and then it creates a nicely formatted Evernote note in a notebook of your choice (I use one called “People” in my “Home” stack). These can even be linked to your phone’s address book through the standalone Hello app.But third-party developers have also built some excellent Evernote integrations. Read-later apps Pocket and Instapaper let you send articles straight into Evernote. On my iPhone, I use Drafts to jot down text notes in the fastest possible way, then send them to Evernote. I also use EverClip, an iPhone app that can run in the background and pack up anything you copy to your clipboard on your phone for easy sending to Evernote.Why Use Evernote?The reasons to use Evernote instead of other solutions are numerous, but there are two big ones. Evernote makes a point of building client applications for every device and platform it can. So if you get used to storing things in Evernote, you don’t have to worry about switching hardware or operating systems.But the most important reason I moved my stuff into Evernote is the company’s ambition. Evernote wants to last 100 years, and you can see that in its priorities.It sometimes seems to work harder on its back-end service and infrastructure than on making its apps better, but that’s okay. In 20 years, I won’t care what the Evernote iPad app was like, but I will certainly care that my notes still work and look the way I intended them to. Evernote is building forward compatibility with future platforms we haven’t imagined.Dropbox is great for cross-platform syncing, but you have to stack together your own collection of other applications for creating and editing documents in it. Google Drive has powerful Google Docs applications (on desktop and Android), and it has optical character recognition and image recognition in its search, but I don’t trust that Google will build all those capabilities for every platform, and I don’t want to be forced to use Android.I think Evernote is the only service building exactly what I want: An outboard brain for digital information that’s built to last. jon mitchell A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…
You’ve got a script. You’ve got your footage. Now, using this trick in Media Composer you can get the two to work together, saving you time and sanity during the edit. If you’re working with a ton of footage (especially interviews) it can quickly become overwhelming to keep track of who said what, when and in what take. Often the first step in the post production process is to get your footage transcribed – making it easier to do a ‘paper edit’ before you jump into the process in your video editing app. The following video tutorial by documentary editor Steve Audette does one better..showing you how to digitally connect your transcript to your footage in Avid Media Composer (without the Avid SyncScript option).Steve demonstrates ‘script interpolation‘ – the process of synching up starting and ending points (or words) in your digital transcript to the exact moment they’re said on-camera. Then, Avid does the heavy lifting, filling in the space in between…so you can click on any word in your script and it will jump to the corresponding spot in the video.As he points out, this method isn’t always precise. Avid is approximating the location of the ‘words’ based on the starting and ending points. That said, you can refine it by synching up additional points between the in and out points, making the ‘transcript to video’ sync even more precise.Perhaps better demonstrated than explained…see how simple it is to make use of this feature in this Avid Media Composer script interpolation tutorial:Thanks for sharing, Steve!Need to get your footage transcribed?
