24 May 2010South Africa’s transport plans for the 2010 Fifa World Cup™ are shaping up, the latest development being the appointment of a service provider to procure, operate and manage spectator transport for the mega-event.The Department of Transport has appointed the ESC & The African Experience consortium to manage inter-provincial and regional road transport services for both commuter buses and minibus taxis for spectators during the month-long tournament.Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele said he was confident that they would provide a professional service for spectators, as they already operate in the tourism industry.“The taxi industry is to provide a fleet of over 400 mid-buses to ferry spectators around the country, while 110 commuter buses from Autopax will complement these services,” Ndebele said.Fleet usage will be dependent on demand that is generated for the service and ticket sales. Inland and coastal services will also be on offer. The fleet of taxis and buses will be additional to existing transport services in the country.Countrywide servicesThere will be a service between Pretoria, OR Tambo International Airport and Johannesburg, as well as Rustenburg, Polokwane, Mbombela and Bloemfontein.On the coast there will be a service from Knysna to Cape Town via Wilderness, George, Mossel Bay and back. There will also be a service from Mossel Bay to Port Elizabeth via George and Wilderness and back.From East London, spectators will be able to travel to Port Elizabeth via King William’s Town and Grahamstown and back.Further up the coast, services will run between Richards Bay and Durban, the Wild Coast Sun and Durban, and between Pietermaritzburg and Durban.Prices will range from R140 to R300 for a one-way trip. The operational plan and final contract have been finalised for coaches and taxis, said the department.Taxi council supportMeanwhile, the South African National Taxi Council (Santaco) is working closely with the consortium to provide a countrywide Minibus solution for spectators.Operational staff will be clearly identifiable through coded arm bands and other branded clothing. “It is not just about sport, it is now truly about transport,” said Ndebele.Source: BuaNews

Applications for the spring are now open until December 18!Amazon’s HQ2 a Reminder Corporate Welfare Is Alive and Well by Andrew Wilford (Spring 2017) in The Daily CallerAmazon’s decision to place a new dual-headquarters — HQ2 — in New York City and Washington, D.C., was predictable. Maybe the decision to split the new headquarters was a twist, but one that Amazon executives likely had in the works from nearly the beginning. That the “lucky winners” would have promised to fork over the big bucks to Amazon for the privilege of its presence is likewise no surprise. But most of all, Amazon’s HQ2 decision served as yet another reminder that if comprehensive change is to come to the status quo of wasteful tax incentives, it may need to be a national effort…Santa Doesn’t Know When You’re Sleeping. Your Phone Does by Erin Dunne (Fall 2018) in The Washington ExaminerSinging “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” parents tell their children, “He sees you when you’re sleeping/he knows when you’re awake/he knows if you’ve been bad or good/so be good for goodness’ sake!”Although that line was likely intended to push kids to watch their actions (and words) even when their parents were out of the room, in the modern world it’s smartphone-toting parents whose every move is monitored, and it’s not Santa who’s watching…Republicans Need Voters to Swipe Right by Michael Shindler (Spring 2016) in The American ConservativeIn the lead-up to the midterm elections, Democratic House candidates and their supporters took an unorthodox route to voters’ hearts: the dating app Tinder. In one extreme example, Suraj Patel, a candidate who ran in a New York Democratic primary race, invested $5,000 in Tinder-focused campaigning, which he colorfully termed “tinder-banking.” On Twitter, folks disparaged the tactic as “disgusting” and “deceitful,” arguing that it represented an inappropriate intrusion of politics into the romantic domain. And since Republican candidates have all conspicuously avoided the strategy, they seemed to agree…Is There a Link Between Tech Addiction Among Teens and Public Policy? by Chloe Anagnos (Summer 2017) in American Institute for Economic ResearchTechnology has made everybody’s lives better, creating opportunities for entrepreneurs in medicine, manufacturing, and any other field you can imagine. But technology also has taken entertainment to a whole new level, making it more accessible to all, young and old. Over time, we have learned about countless young kids who made technology the most important part of their lives — but not in a very healthy way…

Video apps for tablets are an area of tremendous potential. It explains why there is such interest from Facebook in social video apps like Viddy and Socialcam. Facebook knows video is going to be crucial in the coming years, which is why it is sniffing around Viddy – a potential Instagram for video. The biggest video site on the planet, YouTube, is already adapting to the fast-emerging tablet market for content. Over the coming months on ReadWriteWeb, we’ll be profiling other growth stories in tablet video. Stay tuned! Tags:#iPad#Trends#Video Services#web comScore’s statistics are reflective of the rapid growth in the tablet market, since the iPad was launched two years ago. In her presentation on Internet trends this month, Kleiner Perkins analyst Mary Meeker showed that growth in iPad sales per quarter has been three times that of iPhones. While that’s partly due to Apple’s dominance in the tablet market, it’s also an indication that tablets have been adopted by consumers much faster than smartphones. The iPhone was released in 2007, but it took mobile apps and mobile websites at least a few years to mature. Tablet apps on the other hand, and in particular iPad apps, have matured much faster.

The study also found that tablet users are nearly three times more likely to watch video on their device compared to smartphone users. Nearly one in four smartphone owners now owns a tablet, according to comScore. That’s an increase of 13.9 percentage points since a year ago. Another telling statistic from Meeker’s presentation is the growth of tablet and eReader ownership. 29% of US adults now own one of those devices, up from 2% just three years ago.

Virat Kohli’s brilliant captaincy on Thursday helped India defeat Australia by 50 runs in the second ODI at the Eden Gardens and take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.Kohli led from the front top-scoring with 92 runs to help his team post 252 on the board batting first and then was spot on with his decisions in the second innings as Australia got bundled out for 202.Each and every bowling change that Kohli made in the match paid rich dividends with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav emerging as the star Indian bowlers.Bhuvi produced an outstanding opening spell in which he removed openers Hilton Cartwright and David Warner in the span of two overs in the first powerplay to land an early blow on the Aussies.Kohli then brought Kuldeep into the attack in the 16th over and although he didn’t bowl well in his first spell, the chinaman came back strong in the second spell and removed Matthew Wade, Ashton Agar and Pat Cummins off successive deliveries to bag his maiden hat-trick and become only the second Indian bowler to achieve the feat in one-day internationals after Kapil Dev and Chetan Sharma.Bhuvi also came back for the second spell in the 44th over and dismissed Kane Richardson off his first ball to bowl out the Aussies in 43.1 overs.The win saw India register eight wins on the trot, the third time in Kohli’s captaincy. No other Indian captain has managed to achieve this feat. Overall, only former captain Ricky Ponting has registered an eight-match winning five times in one-day internationals. Overall, Kohli has 29 wins, 7 losses and 1 no result in the 37 ODIs he has led in with a staggering 80.55 winning percentage.advertisementIndia’s eight-match winning streak started with the fifth ODI against West Indies in Kingston where they won by eight wickets. After that they whitewashed Sri Lanka in the five-match series in Sri Lanka and then registered the two victories against Australia in Chennai and Kolkata.Kohli has been instrumental with the bat in these victories with the right-handed batsman scoring 533 runs (111*, 82*, 4, 3, 131, 110*, 0, 92) in the last eight games including three hundreds.Kohli, who was adjudged the Man-of-the-Match said that regular breakthroughs was the need of the hour for them and his bowlers gave him that.”We didn’t feel like we had enough on the board at the break after the first innings. But we knew if we had a good start we have a good chance of defending it. We needed breakthroughs throughout and Bhuvi provided it initially, his spell was something that set up the game for us along with Bumrah and then those two spinners again in the middle overs did the damage. We knew if we don’t take wickets, it is going to be difficult with the outfield being a bit wet,” Kohli said in the post-match presentation ceremony.Kohli highlighted the importance of the first spell by Bhuvneshwar, where he picked two important wickets of Warner and Cartwright.”Bhuvi’s spell became even more important because we knew the wrist-spinners would properly do damage in the middle. The Australians needed a few runs in the first 10 overs and we needed a couple of breakthroughs. He got two wickets and could have got the third one as well, that would have been ideal but I think he really set the tone with the spell. The deliveries he got the batsmen out with were unplayable. That’s what he gets to the table. With a bit of assistance from the pitch, you can count on Bhuvi for getting the breakthroughs,” Kohli said.The India captain was happy with the effort put in by Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep and mentioned that such performances keep the competition going within the unit ahead of the 2019 World Cup.”Two young spinners bowling with a lot of heart, getting us those breakthroughs against a top quality side speaks volumes of their characters. They will do us good service in the future as well and that keeps the competition going among the players we have, looking at the World Cup in a couple of years’ time,” the 28-year-old added.
