Switzerland ‘a key investor in SA’

first_img27 June 2012Switzerland is a key partner for investment in South Africa, having invested around R17-billion and created over 13 000 jobs in the country over the last decade, says Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies.Davies was speaking to journalists in Pretoria on Sunday on his return from an official visit to Zurich, during which he held talks with his Swiss counterpart, Federal Councillor Johan Schneider-Ammann, addressed a Swissmem Industry Day, and met with SwissCham Southern Africa and potential investors.Davies said his message to the Swiss government and business fraternity was that Africa was ready for massive growth. At the same time, he stressed that the continent had to prioritise industrialisation and regional economic diversification to ensure sustainable growth.Davies noted that Switzerland ranked as the seventh-largest foreign direct investor to South Africa.“Since 2003, Switzerland has invested in about 30 projects in South Africa, with direct investment volume estimated at R17-billion over the period 2003-2012,” he said, adding that Swiss investment projects in SA had created an estimated 13 200 jobs in the country.These projects were spread across a range of industrial sectors, including financial services, metals, industrial machinery, equipment and tools, and food and tobacco.In his meeting with Schneider-Ammann, Davies said South Africa’s black economic empowerment (BEE) policy was being refocused towards the development of enterprises and skills development, as this would lead to the reduction of unemployment, as well as create growth opportunities for black owned enterprises.South Africa’s US$2-billion contribution to the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF’s) firewall was welcomed by the president of SwissCham Southern Africa, Georg Umbright.“The world needs Africa for sure in the next 10 to 20 years,” Umbright said. “We can’t do without Africa, and the main motor of southern Africa is South Africa.“We are glad that Minister Davies has such a strategic view of how to develop trade amongst the countries of SADC and also on the larger scale.”Umbright expressed confidence that there would be more Swiss industries coming into the country.In the five-year period ending in 2011, South Africa’s exports to Switzerland showed an upward trend, with the exception of 2010. Total exports from South Africa to Switzerland increased over this period from R8.8-billion in 2007 to R21.2-billion in 2011.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Mono for Android Open for Developer Testing

first_imgAccording to project head Miguel de Icaza, “all the embarrassing bugs” have now been fixed, and the platform is available for testing by anyone interested in doing so. On his personal blog, de Icaza noted that the project uses a library profile that is better suited for mobile devices. That means they removed features that are not necessary, he says, like the entire System.Configuration stack, just as Silverlight does.“In addition to bringing the core ECMA VM to Android,” ?wrote de Icaza. “We bound the entire set of Android Dalvik APIs to C# and in the process C#-ified them. This includes using C# properties for metadata (less XML config file messing around), exposing C# events, C# properties, strongly typed generic types where necessary, implicit conversions where needed, using the C# API style, IEnumerable where appropriate (to let you LINQ over your Dalvik, and we turn IIterable into IEnumerables for you).”Mono for Android also offers the following:The same OpenTK library popular among .NET developers on Windows, Linux, iPhone, allowing you to share the same OpenGL logic across platforms.Support for the full JIT (unlike iOS)Templates for C# (but other .NET compilers should work, if they reference MonoDroid’s libraries).Last, but certainly not least, MonoDroid is now supported on Mac OS X. Developers can get started with testing Mono for Android here.

Google Apps Gives Schools a Better “Walled Garden” for Student Email

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Google#web audrey watters Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting When I attended Google’s one-day summit with Oregon teachers and tech-coordinators this fall, I heard about the myriad struggles faced by schools trying to implement Apps for Education – and this in a state that was already completely on board with the process of moving schools to the cloud. One of the concerns that I heard most often expressed centered around students’ access to and usage of email – concerns about safety, privacy, and acceptable use. Will students mis-use email? Do parents approve of giving students accounts? At what age should a child get an email account?After all, while most of the tools provided via Apps for Edu can be locked down so that usage is restricted to a school or even a class, email gives you unfettered access to the world (or, at least those parts with email addresses).Locking Down GmailAs Gmail is arguably the cornerstone of Google Apps, some of the fears about students and email have likely hampered some schools’ adoption of Apps for Education. And for its part, Google says that having a better control over email is one of the most requested features from its K-12 users. So Google has made a change to Google Apps (not just for Education but for Business and Government customers too) that will let administrators establish policies specifying who their users can communicate with via email. These new controls can be be adjusted based on different user groups so, for example, school faculty and staff can have unrestricted email access while students can only email those within the school community.“Using these new controls finally gives us the ability to provide email to our 40,000 high school students. We are confident that this will help protect our children from inappropriate communications and excited about new class activities and collaboration that email will bring. Not all kids are comfortable speaking up in class and this gives many of them another avenue to approach their teachers,” said Laurie Tranmer, Email Services Manager at Prince George’s County Public Schools.The new feature is expected to roll out to Apps for Business, Government, and Education users within the next few days. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Sidhu’s TV show puts govt. in a spot

first_imgPunjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has decided to seek legal opinion on whether his Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu can continue to appear as a celebrity judge on a popular television show. “Capt. Amarinder has said he is not sure what the law says regarding a Cabinet minister working on a television programme, and will have to ask the State’s advocate general to give legal advice on the matter,” his media advisor, Raveen Thukral, told The Hindu.Conflict of interest“It’s about whether there’s any conflict of interest if he [Mr. Sidhu] continues to work in television…If there is any, then the Chief Minister will talk to him [Mr. Sidhu] and bring it to his knowledge,” he added.The controversy erupted after Mr. Sidhu recently said that he will continue to appear on a popular TV show as a celebrity judge. “TV shows will not interfere with my Cabinet responsibilities. The public had elected me five times with what I have been doing…If they don’t have a problem, why should anyone else have it,” Mr. Sidhu had said. ‘Not office of profit’He insisted that his TV shows will not interfere with his Cabinet responsibilities. “I have no liquor, sand mining or transport business like former deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal. I earn a living through TV shows and I will be in Chandigarh from Monday to Thursday and in Amritsar from Friday to Sunday. What I do at night should not be anyone’s concern. I will take first flight back to Punjab after TV shoots in Mumbai,” he said.Mr. Sidhu, who currently holds the portfolios of local government, tourism and cultural affairs, has been maintaining that doing a TV show does not come under the ambit of “office of profit”.Meanwhile, Navjot Singh Sidhu’s wife Navjot Kaur has come out in support of his husband through a Facebook post, saying that the issue was being over-hyped without any reason.“Such hype has been created about Navjot earning a living from television. He has left 80 per cent of shows, which included IPL, commentary, etc.I think it is a meagre time for a non-socially active God-fearing workaholic,” she wrote on Facebook.

COSCO Shipping Lines Back to Normal after Cyber Attack

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Following last week’s cyber attack, COSCO Shipping Lines informed that its network applications in the Americas have been totally recovered.“All communication channels including telephone, email, and electronic data exchange have been restored. There has been a further increase in our service response. We are working at full stretch to process all the service requests received previously, and the service response is expected to be back on track within this week. “Global networks of COSCO Shipping Lines are safe and stable, and our global business operations are steady and orderly,” the company said in an update.Initially, it was reported that the customer service platform at COSCO’s terminal at the Port of Long Beach was targeted by hackers. Nevertheless, the company later said that the network breakdown affected offices across the American continent.The network failures affected areas included the United States, Canada, Panama, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Chile and Uruguay. However, the company’s ships were not affected and continued operating as normal.Commenting on the cyber attack, Naval Dome CEO Itai Sela said that the incident was very worrying.“While COSCO shut down its connections as a precautionary measure, we have to emphasize that ships are not islands, they are not self-contained units. This is a mistaken belief. Shore- and ship-operations are cyber-connected,” he said.“If shore-based and ship-based IT systems are linked, it could open a gateway to the COSCO ships, leaving them highly susceptible to an attack. Vessels do not need to be attacked directly but an attack can arrive via the company’s shore-based IT systems and very easily penetrate the ships’ critical OT systems.Although COSCO has been quick to respond to this hack, the virus may have been dormant for some time, so I would not be surprised if other systems – shore- and ship-based systems – have been breached.This kind of attack could spread through the entire fleet and its consequences might be devastating, and certainly costly, especially in terms of insurance. We strongly recommend to whoever discovered the attack, to thoroughly verify the breach has been contained and has not infected any ships in the COSCO fleet.This cyber-attack, like the Maersk attacks last year, will no doubt send shockwaves throughout the industry and encourage board members to take immediate, effective protection. Regulators need to implement workable rules and guidelines to help this vitally important global industry defend itself properly.”last_img read more
