Currently, one of the most debated topics influencing innovation is digitalization and its impact on the future of employment. It is met with equal parts excitement and trepidation. No matter how you look at it, digital transformation and a truly connected global economy is already upon us.

 

Siemens (www.Siemens.com) has provided automation equipment and industrial networks to assist Anglo’s Engineering Skills Training Centre (ESTC). One of the pillars of Digitalization is industrial networks and security and it is crucial that these engineers understand the role of this technology in the future of mining.

 

 

As a leader in automation we are continuously expanding our leadership role in Industrial Digitalization. There is an opportunity, especially in Africa to embrace new and exponential technologies combined with human talent to accelerate industrialization and drive economic growth. “We are proud to be supporting Anglo American Platinum to advance skills and opportunities in Africa,” explains Sabine Dall’Omo, CEO for Siemens Southern and Eastern Africa.

 

Gary Humphries, Anglo American Platinum’s Executive Head for Processing was appreciative of Siemens completion of yet another skills project at the ESTC. In his address, Gary said, “Siemens and Anglo American Platinum have been in partnership since 2010 and we have seen approximately 298 artisans successfully trained and qualified at this centre. This vital contribution by Siemens to ESTC will significantly contribute towards the development of the human resource capabilities of our artisans and will help broaden the thinking of the students to explore new career capabilities.  We celebrate the handover of the Siemens Simatic Wall and look forward to the role it will play in training the current and next generation of skilled artisans.”

 

We are ramping up our commitment to the region to meet our customer’s needs, expanding our portfolio for digital enterprises, supporting our customers in the manufacturing and process industries with digitalization, customization and efficiency improvements and investing in equipping our future generation with the right skills,” ends Sabine.

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has published a discussion document on Digital Sound Broadcasting Services. The publication gives notice of ICASA’s intention to conduct an inquiry into the prospects of implementing a digital sound broadcasting service in South Africa.

 

Digital Broadcasting Service is an audio broadcasting technology aimed at providing superior quality sound broadcasting service using digital communication technology.

 

 

It differs from traditional analogue broadcasting service in that, digital signals can be transmitted successfully at lower transmitter power. Digital radio is also easy to use or tune in than analogue radio in the form of Amplified Modulation (AM) and Frequency Modulation (FM). Data capabilities of digital radio can be used directly or modified for other related broadcasting activities such as Internet Radio.

 

 

“The licensing of different forms of broadcasting services require a lot of spectrum, which is a scarce resource and ICASA continues to receive enquiries from the public about licensing processes therefore encouraging and assisting Council to make decisions to offer more services to provide for competition in the broadcasting sector”, says Councillor Dimakatso Qocha. If and when implemented, digital broadcasting services can improve spectrum efficiency and spectrum management; and offer choice for consumers or South African audiences.

 

 

Interested parties are invited to make written representations on the published Discussion Document on Digital Sound Broadcasting Services within forty-five (45) working days from the publication of the Notice in the Government Gazette.

 

A copy of the Discussion Document is available at ICASA’s Head Office library, 164 Katherine Street, Sandton; as well as at all Regional Offices. Click here to download the document.

Omo Child | John Rowe | Ethiopia | 2015 | 90 min 

In Ethiopia’s Omo Valley, children are being killed horrifically under an ancient tradition known as ‘mingi’. Teeth growing in a certain order can bring a child a death sentence. One young tribesman strives for change through education and adopting the cursed children. But challenging tribal superstition isn’t easy and as he battles to save lives, things are not all that they seem.

* Social Impact Media Award – Jury Ethos Award, 2016

April 23rd

Strike a Rock | Aliki Saragas | South Africa, 2017 | 87 min

Strike A Rock is the story of two South African mothers and best friends, Primrose Sonti and Thumeka Magwangqana. They live in Nkaneng, Marikana, an informal settlement in rural South Africa that sprung up around a mine operated by Lonmin Plc, the third largest platinum extractor in the world. This company has significant legal obligation to the community that they mine under and around, but does not comply with all their responsibilities.

 

 

This community became internationally known after the 2012 Marikana massacre, when 37 striking miners were killed by police. However, instead of improving, the living conditions that motivated the strike in the first place continue to worsen. And this is what Primrose and Thumeka are fighting against.

Have You Heard From Johannesburg: Oliver Tambo | Connie Field | South Africa | 2017 | 90 min

Political comrades and law partners, Mandela and Tambo shared a political destiny. Nelson Mandela is a household name.  Oliver Tambo is virtually unknown. Banned in South Africa, Tambo led the liberation struggle in exile from 1960-1990 while Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island.

During those 30 years he not only kept the African National Congress (ANC) unified, led his movement both inside and outside South Africa in a successful battle against apartheid,  his calls to the international community to isolate and sanction the South African regime created the most globalised human rights struggle of the 20th century.

In the end, his actions released Nelson Mandela and laid the foundation for a new South Africa.  Suffering a stroke on the eve of success, OR would not live to see his livelong friend become the first black president of a democratic South Africa.

Southern African reggae and world music fans have something to celebrate in May, as the internationally acclaimed French group Dub inc will arrive for a series of exciting live performances at some of the region’s most loved festival events.

The epitome of the successful European Reggae band, Dub inc’s hundreds of live performance over the past ten years have seen them play to over a million fans in 31 countries and 5 continents.

 

Over the past 20 years, the band has perfected their unique blend of Reggae, Dancehall, Kabyl and World Music. With the two distinct and yet complimentary voices of Bouchkour and Komlan’s fronting the band, the band lives and breathes its message of the ethical intermixing of styles and people.

Whether they write in French, English or Kabyl, a Berber language spoken by the Kabyle people in the north and northeast of Algeria, the band conveys a universal message through their unique sense of melody combined with truthful lyrics.

 

Born to immigrant parents, the group, like many other Reggae greats, is both political and yet optimistic. Their hopeful vision of unity and tolerance will resonate strongly with local Reggae fans, while their sound, infused with electronic vibrations, some hints to dubstep, and a few hip hop references is infectiously memorable.

 

More than just a band, Dub inc, is a movement fronted by tens of thousands of activist fans. With a grass-roots DIY ethic, Dub inc engages directly with their audiences and fans. With three performances in the region, Southern African music fans can now become part of this movement.

Dan Stone, Senior Marketing Manager at Clarion Gaming, said: “At ICE London 2017, we were asked by prominent members of the industry if we would explore the feasibility of organising and launching a professional B2B event for what is one of world gaming’s most dynamic and exciting growth markets. Our first step was the launch of Gaming Africa in 2017, which we have transitioned to ICE Africa, the first time the ICE brand has travelled outside the UK.  More than six months ahead of the opening ceremony, the level of interest is significant with key supporters, speakers, sponsors and media ready to engage with gaming’s newest event brand.”

 

 

He added: “Whilst the scale of ICE Africa will not be the same as ICE London, we will be bringing the same level of commitment, thinking, creativity and professionalism that has made ICE London the world’s favourite B2B gaming event.”

eTV to air award winning Winnie documentary

Posted by radio On April - 10 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

eMedia is proud to bring Pascale Lamche’s award-winning documentary Winnie to the small screen this week.

This illuminating work brings fresh perspective and insight into the life of the anti-apartheid activist and human rights advocate Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

 

The documentary won a Sundance Award in 2017.

 

 

Winnie explores Mandikizela-Mandela’s contribution to the struggle against apartheid from inside the country and includes interviews with Madikizela-Mandela herself, those who were closest to her, and those who sought to extinguish her radical capacity to shake up the order of things.

 

 

 

“With acquisition of the rights to Winnie, the eMedia Group is proud to contribute to the collective understanding of our history, as we continue to do every day in our various media properties,”  says eMedia Holdings CEO says Andre van der Veen.

“We are particularly excited to be able to offer this award-winning production to our OpenView viewers as part of our commitment to bringing high-quality content to our free-to-air satellite platform. We have also made a library of our key Winnie Mandela interviews and stories available on our YouTube channel so that our viewers are able to watch these enlightening interviews at their convenience.”

 

Mapi Mhlangu, MD and editor-in-chief of eNCA says:”In South Africa we have lived through turbulent times, and coming to terms with that history is often difficult. The passage of time often distorts as much as it allows for better insight into the past.  Making sense of that past remains absolutely key to imagining a better future, though. In that spirit we hope that this documentary will help many South Africans confirm what they already know, gain new insight into what they have long believed about our collective history, but also, to help inform how we remember someone as important to our history as Nomzamo Winnie Madikizela Mandela.

 

 

“The life of this singular woman is indeed humbling, and holds many lessons for those of us who have benefited from her work over her long life,” says Mhlangu.

 

Marlon Davids, e.tv’s head of channels, says: “We look forward to scheduling Winnieon e.tv and on Openview to enable South Africans to see this excellent film in their numbers.”

 

 

Lamche’s account of the political life of Madikizela-Mandela includes fascinating archival footage, extensive interviews with her, her daughter Zindzi, and those who sought her downfall. Though firmly on the side of Winnie, this film nonetheless offers a unique perspective of recent South African history. In the process, it restores Madikizela-Mandela as a key figure in the liberation of South Africa.

 

 

The documentary will premiere on eNCA on Wednesday, 11 April, at 9pm, after which it will broadcast to all South Africans on e.tv and OpenView.

9 Days to Go: JYDC Production

Posted by radio On April - 10 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

Jozi Youth Dance Company (JYDC), presents their 4th annual production called Domaine, from 19 – 22 April 2018 at the Roodepoort Theatre.

Jozi Youth Dance Company is a one of its kind, platform for young dancers, exposing them to professional choreographers and dancers. They gain invaluable experience, performing to sold out audiences, preparing them for the cut-throat dance industry.

 

This is JYDC’s 4th season and promises to be one of their best yet. This year we present to you Domaine (translated from French, meaning “realms”).

 

Our dancers will involve the audience, taking them on a journey through different worlds, stepping seamlessly from one existence to the next.

 

Over the past 4 years, JYDC have welcomed young dancers from all over Gauteng in order to give them a platform to showcase their talent and inspire the next generation of professional dancers. Under the directorship of Jayd Swart, the company has grown, not only in number but also quality of dance.  “Young dancers need to be given the opportunity to show what they are capable of.  We train them in both technique and expression and motivate them to achieve new heights while preparing them for a future in dance” said Swart.

 

Domaine, the largest and most spectacular of shows produced by JYDC is guaranteed to set the stage on fire.  “This year, we have the most magnificent lineup of choreographers, each bringing their own distinct personality to the stage” said Swart.  Choreographers include, Shannon Glover, principle dancer from Johannesburg Ballet, Phume Sikhakhane and Kingsley Beukes, both cast members of Disney’s theatrical production of The Lion King currently performing in Asia, Evan Van Soest, professional dancer and choreographer, Cayley Hodson, resident choreographer of JYDC and Jayd Swart herself who is a well-established international contemporary dance choreographer.

 

As an added bonus, Bernice Silvius, ex-prima ballerina from Johannesburg ballet is training two young aspiring ballerinas, both pupils at Northcliff High School to perform a pas de deux from the famous Don Quixote with Conrad Nusser, principle dancer from Cape Town City Ballet and in true JYDC nature a student, Paige Sundelson, has been afforded the opportunity to choreograph a piece on her peers, also to be showcased in Domaine.

 

JYDC has opened up many doors for company members including a training tour to South-Korea in 2017.  This year, the production forms part of the Grahamstown National Arts Festival line-up.

For more information on the production, Domaine or auditions for the next season, please contact Jayd Swart on 076 213 8867 or e-mail jycontemp@gmail.com
