WEST HAM: PAYET 74th; NOBLE 76th.Norwich suffered a setback in their bid for Barclays Premier League safety when they allowed West Ham to come back from a two-goal deficit at Carrow Road.

Young SA innovators shine in US

first_img29 June 2012A South African schoolgirl’s innovative device for eliminating bacteria on toothbrushes won her rave reviews, a first prize and R17 000 at the 2012 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA in May.Seventeen-year-old Ladysmith High School scholar Chene Mostert was one of five young South African prize winners at the prestigious Fair, which draws the most promising student entrepreneurs, innovators and scientists from around the world every year.According to the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists website, finalists for the Fair are selected from hundreds of affiliated fairs, and their projects are evaluated onsite by more than 1 200 expert judges from every scientific discipline.How clean is your toothbrush?This week, Beeld newspaper reported that Mostert had won the American Dental Association’s first prize of R17 000, and an invitation to return to the US in December to patent her invention.Mostert told Beeld that, while brushing her teeth one night, “I noticed the toilet next to the basin, and remembered reading that cold, wet places are ideal breeding places for bacteria.”She then collected and tested 150 toothbrushes, and found more than 100 different types of bacteria growing on the bristles.“I realised there was nothing on the local market for cleaning toothbrushes, so I designed a plastic box with a rotation system in which toothbrushes can be stored and cleaned,” Mostert told Beeld.Other winnersSouth Africa’s other winners this year, according to the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists website, were:Sasha Holloway, a 15-year-old student from Cape Town’s Springfield Convent School, who received a second place in the marine category and R12 000 in prize money for a project focusing on how the activity rhythms of small crustaceans are linked to tidal patterns and other environmental factors. Sixteen-year-old student Vivienne Dames from Victoria Girls’ High School in Grahamstown, who placed third in the environmental management category, winning R8 000 for a project that offers an environmentally friendly cleaning textile dye safe for agricultural irrigation.  Eighteen-year old Hearn Johnson from Vereeniging in Gauteng province, who picked up a third place and R8 000 for a mechanical engineering project to manufacture functional prosthetic limbs more affordably.  Sixteen-year old Brandon Ramnath from Christian brothers College in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg, who received a third place and R4 000 from the American Psychological Association for an educational board game that helps high school students to study and achieve better marks. SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

The up-to-date Practical Guide to Media Law is now available

first_img“The freedom to criticize is a right worth defending” Jonathan Shapiro at the launch of the handbook. (Image: LexisNexis) • Jozi Donjeany-MethAccount ManagerLogico Creative Solutions+27 31 207 2887jozi@logicocreative.co.za• Oscar and the photo of the witness • South Africa’s global reputation steady • Press freedom in South Africa • Press Freedom Day: release Hammerl • SA celebrates media freedom Sulaiman Philip “If the law supposes that,” said Mr Bumble, “the law is a ass – a idiot. If that’s the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is that his eye may be opened by experience – by experience.”Charles Dickens wrote those words in Oliver Twist in 1838. Not much has changed; experience is the only way the law is tested or changed.One of the most vibrant aspects of law in South Africa over the past 20 years has been the practice of media law. With the dawn of democracy the country’s constitution was rewritten, including sections pertaining to media law. For journalists and editors the most up-to-date legal guide was the venerated Newspaperman’s Guide to the Law , last updated in 1990. But on Tuesday, 4 March, publisher LexisNexis released the new Practical Guide to Media Law .Written by Webber Wentzel partners and media law experts, Dario Milo and Pamela Stein, the new LexisNexis Practical Guide to Media Law is a guide to how media law is practised in South Africa. Written in simple English and using cases the authors are familiar with, the handbook is an easy-to-use guide for media professionals.Keynote speaker at the launch was Jonathan Shapiro – better known as satirical cartoonist Zapiro – whose experience of testing “what is legally acceptable” goes back to 1998. In all his brushes with the courts his attorneys have been Milo and Stein. Praising their talent, which has “kept me from the poorhouse” he said, “I have always seen it as my job to push the envelope as far as I can and it’s always been theirs to hold me just behind the line.”The cartoonist remembered the early days of the country’s new democracy as being “like the Wild West”; what was acceptable was still up in the air. He reminded the audience that even while a new constitution was being negotiated the media was operating under legislation guided by the infamous Internal Security Act. “As apartheid legislation was being dismantled it opened up the media space because the rules were in flux.”The Newspaperman’s Guide to the Law was the perfect handbook for a dark time in South Africa’s history, Stein said when the authors took questions from the audience; however it was time for something to replace it. Agreeing with his colleague, Milo explained that changes in the law happened incrementally and only when the limits of legislation were tested. “The cases we chose as examples were the ones that pushed constitutional limits, but it is a book that can be read as celebrating the vibrancy of our democracy.”Melissa Moore from non-governmental organisation section 16, which provided funding for the handbook, celebrated the rich jurisprudence of the country before signalling a warning, saying all governments would rather hide information than share it with their citizens, which is why the media plays such an important role in a democratic society. “In a democracy as young as ours, a strong free press has a vital role to play. Besides being a tool for the press it is a reminder of its obligations to provide truth, information and news.”Section 16 advocates for law reform in the areas of freedom of expression and access to information.Shapiro joked earlier in the evening that the book was a tool, but that nothing “beat having a good attorney in your corner” and none were better than the authors of the handbook. He is a friend of artist Brett Murray – best known for his painting The Spear – who sought his advice when he was sued by the African National Congress. Shapiro said, “My first question was ‘Who is your lawyer?’ Once I heard Dario’s name I told him to relax; it was all taken care of. My point, if you are going to put together a handbook on media law, then get the best.”The LexisNexis Practical Guide to Media Law is available online and at bookstores for around R513.last_img read more

BookServer: A Plan to Build an Open Web of Books

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… sarah perez 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Tags:#Amazon#E-Books#Google#news#Product Reviews#web The Internet Archive has just unveiled their ambitious project called BookServer, which will allow users to find, buy, or borrow digital books from sources all across the web. The system, built on an open architecture and using open book formats, promises that the books housed there will work on any device whether that’s a laptop, PC, smartphone, game console, or one of the myriad of e-Readers like Amazon’s Kindle. The project’s lofty goal is to essentially create an open web of books where anyone can publish their books and make their content available via search.Any Book, Open FormatsAlthough still in the early days of development and potentially taking years to complete, the BookServer project will allow search engines to index books from all over the web. What that means for an end user is that you could type a title into a search engine and the engine would return results listing everywhere you could get that book in digital format including online bookstores, libraries, or a direct method from the publisher itself. Depending on your needs, you could borrow the book or purchase it and then download it to your digital device.While the project isn’t exactly a direct effort to take down Amazon’s online bookstore or Google’s upcoming online eBook store called Google Editions, it will provider book publishers and online libraries with the means to more effectively compete with those companies. By allowing publishers to set their own pricing and manage the distribution of their books, they will be able to take back control from Amazon and Google who would rather dictate those terms for them.An Open Marketplace for eBooksA secondary goal of BookServer’s open system is to fight back against the proprietary marketplaces, such as Amazon’s Kindle Store, where books are only sold in a copyright-protected format (.AZW) that only works on the company’s eReader device, the Kindle. Elsewhere, some book sellers use other proprietary formats, others use the open ePub format, and still others distribute books as Adobe PDFs. For consumers, this multitude of choices only leads to confusion. People don’t know what formats their particular device can read or where to get them. It brings to mind the similar issues consumers have had with digitally distributed music. To this day, many are still confused about whether their iTunes purchased music can play on other devices or whether tunes purchased from other online MP3 stores will play on their iPods. While Google promises its Google Editions store will allow anyone to access digital books as long as they have a web browser and internet access, it’s still unknown at this time how the company plans to make the digital content available offline. Will it require the use of special web browser plugins to do so? Until Google reveals more about the technical details, it is not possible to know how truly open their online store will be. And even if their store is 100% open, they are still a company whose ultimate goal is to profit from their work of digitizing books. BookServer’s goal, on the other hand, is to provide universal access to book data made available in open formats. Today, a few booksellers have partnered with the BookServer system including Feedbooks, O’Reilly, Adobe, and the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) project.
