“We are confident that this partnership will yield tremendous results as we fight crime together with communities.” Mthethwa said that improving the safety of people in their homes, communities, places of work and entertainment would lead to a better quality of life for all South Africans. “Crime undermines our efforts aimed at defeating poverty, even as poverty contributes in various ways in creating conditions that breed crime,” the minister said. 13 October 2009 The SABC said it was pleased to continue to be part of helping the police to combat crime. “This also provides the public broadcaster with a platform to execute its role as a watchdog for the South African community,” said South African Broadcasting Corporation acting CEO Gab Mampone. Better quality of life A total of 300 episodes of Police File have been screened since 2003. Deputy Police Minister Fikile Mbalula said the true measure of success would be based on how When Duty Calls contributed to the decrease in crime, and not just in the number of viewers. “It should become a beacon of hope to vulnerable persons who have not seen their loved ones, while instilling fear in criminals. This is the kind of reflection we would like to see,” he said. Beacon of hope When Duty Calls builds on the success of Police File, a former programme that yielded impressive results in finding missing persons and locating and arresting criminals. Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa has launched When Duty Calls, a new television programme that gives information on wanted and missing persons and urges the public to come forward with information about crimes. National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele hoped the nation would respond to the programme. “As the police, our fundamental role is to maintain, restore public order, serve and protect our communities in our operations of fiercely fighting and combating crime,” he said. “In addition, the programme will provide the public with feedback on police crime investigation successes,” Mthethwa said at the launch of the programme in Krugersdorp in Gauteng’s West Rand last week.

20 April 2011 The new Companies and Intellectual Property Commission, and the new Companies Act that it takes charge of, will simplify company registration and modernise business administration in South Africa, says Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies. Launching the new commission in Midrand, Johannesburg on Monday, Davies said it would guide the implementation of South Africa’s new Companies Act, which comes into effect in May. “I’m satisfied that the commission is in a state of readiness,” Davies said. “When we bring into force this legislation, we will be bringing to South Africans top notch legislation.” “We need to move from where we are in the interest of good governance, and this piece of legislation will help us in this regard,” the minister said, adding: “As we implement, we will sort out any problems that may arise. We will learn by doing.” With significantly expanded functions and powers, the new commission will combine the functions of the Office of Companies and Intellectual Property Enforcement (OCIPE) and Companies and Intellectual Property Registration Office (Cipro). Administrative functions currently assigned to the minister under the Companies Act are to be placed within the jurisdiction of the commission, which will act as an autonomous statutory body outside the public service. The Act also introduces a number of new responsibilities, which Cipro currently does not perform, but will be performed by the new commission. These include pro-active enforcement measures by way of compliance notices served on defaulting companies, investigations of all complaints and contraventions of the Act, and investigating the affairs of companies. Davies rejected criticism that the new commission would be Cipro, just under a new name. “Our intention is to actually ease processes, so it won’t be business as usual. We are aware that there will be challenges at first, but what we can assure businesspeople is that things will be totally different from now on.” The process of reorganising Cipro and retraining staff had taken more than a year of intensive work, according to the department’s deputy director-general, Zodwa Ntuli. The department’s former deputy director-general, Astrid Ludin, has been appointed to lead the commission and will be assisted by several deputy commissioners. Ludin said: “The challenge for the commission will be to make sure that we have systems in place that will ensure that we deliver on the simplicity that we promise to companies. Together, we will work hard to achieve an institution that will be a vehicle for business enterprises in this country.” Source: BuaNews
Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting In an effort to help advertisers reach key consumers, Peerset is launching what it describes as a “psycho-graphic targeting tool.” Not unlike dating algorithms, Peerset’s targeting algorithm takes keywords and meta data from online profiles and matches them with relevant information. With dating sites, users receive recommendations on potential mates; with Peerset, users receive advertisements and deals on relevant products and services. Video life-streaming network Justin.tv is just one of the groups already reaping the benefits of this system. Said Justin.tv’s Director of Advertising Operations, Scott Newton, “Peerset gives Justin.tv’s advertisers the ability to target users in unique and powerful ways. The company enables Justin.tv to go beyond demographic targeting and target by user interests. Advertisers benefit from a higher response rate when ads are targeted to passions and interests.”In the past, marketers have centered campaigns on a specific demographic group. Clients define key stakeholder groups, like 18- to 35-year-old urban male techies, and marketers look for corresponding ad placement packages. With Peerset, stakeholders are targeted after a brand has already been audited. Peerset scrapes data from millions of sites, profiles and status messages and compiles a series of word clusters. While seemingly unrelated, Grey’s Anatomy, John Mayer and Starbucks coffee are clustered together simply because a large number of users have expressed interest in all three topics. These users might come from vastly different demographic groups, but their interests are the same. The system can then serve ads to them by matching general word clusters or by targeting specific users who have expressed an interest in one or more core concepts. Peerset operates on the belief that this interest-based targeting outperforms traditional demographic targeting. The service price varies based on a percentage of your ad buy. Says Peerset CEO, Mike “JB” John-Baptiste, “We’re betting on the fact that if you can find commonality in data, you can scale it and generate sales.” To try Peerset visit Peerset.com. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#start#startups A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… dana oshiro
Argentina’s Lionel Messi fights for the ball against Germany in World Cup final With two quick and sublimely deft touches, Mario Goetze ended Germany’s 24-year wait for another World Cup title. Goetze scored the winning goal in extra time to give Germany a 1-0 victory over Argentina on Sunday in a tight and tense World Cup final that came down to a few moments of individual skill.Goetze, who wasn’t born when West Germany beat Argentina in the 1990 final, controlled a cross with his chest in the 113th minute and in one fluid motion volleyed the ball past goalkeeper Sergio Romero and inside the far post from five yards out.It was a goal that gave Germany its fourth World Cup title in its eighth final, and left Argentina star Lionel Messi still walking in the shadow of his compatriot Diego Maradona, who led his country to the 1986 title.Goetze went on as a substitute for Miroslav Klose toward the end of regulation time and the 22-year-old midfielder’s fresh legs made the difference.Team Lineups(from):Germany: Manuel Neuer; Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng, Benedikt Howedes; Philipp Lahm, Christoph Kramer (Andre Schurrle, 31st), Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil (Per Mertesacker, 120th); Thomas Muller, Miroslav Klose (Mario Gotze, 88th).Argentina: Sergio Romero; Pablo Zabaleta, Martin Demichelis, Ezequiel Garay, Marcos Rojo; Lucas Biglia, Javier Mascherano, Enzo Perez (Fernando Gago, 86th); Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain (Rodrigo Palacio, 78th), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Sergio Aguero, 46th)
