In order to optimize these views, while minimizing visibility between neighbours, each of the 26 apartments was given a unique shape; the result of this arrangement is the building’s overall saw-shaped figure.Save this picture!© Philippe Ruault The site orientation gives the two long sides of the building, which face to the east and the west, very different characteristics. Along the faceted west facade, opaque panels alternate with full-height windows that offer panoramic views of the river, and which open to transform the living space into a terrace. The sectional design works to enhance the spectacular presence of the 60 m high bridge. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultTwo levels of apartments are stacked, with duplexes and triplexes above the ground floor. Each level is shifted laterally in order to expose part of the roof, allowing the full-height windows to extend into the ceiling. This transition from the vertical strips of glass on the facade to the horizontally-orientated roof lights emphasizes the effect of the ‘low-angle shot’, to use a cinematographic term, up towards the bridge towers. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultOn the east side, the building is shielded from a noisy street by a metal-clad facade with relatively small openings, the size and position of which are determined by the needs of the apartments within. But even here, the river beckons. Transverse passages, clad in reflective material, amplify available light and create a blurry, dreamlike image of the river that is visible on the street side; the passages also widen to invite the approach towards the river.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe End of Car CultureArticles’Occupy Infrastructure’: MOMA PS1 Rockaway Call for Ideas Winning Proposal / Barkow …Unbuilt ProjectProject locationAddress:44 Quai Chaigneau Bichon, 33310 Lormont, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

90 second pitch lands $90,000 for Gen Y property developer

By on October 6, 2020

first_imgJack Gould, 24, is looking at profit of $490,000 on his current developments. Picture: Jono Searle.“At the moment I am doing $5.98m worth of developments in Brisbane with an projected profit share of $1.02m. From this I will be earning a projected $490,000 and I also have two investment properties and live in a waterfront penthouse,” he said. “I do this fulltime now and I am doing all of this with none of my own money. I also just finished writing a book about how I overcame drug addiction to run my own successful business.”Ms Cooper said they were in a privileged position.“It’s pretty good,” she said. “Not many 20-year-olds can say that. It’s an amazing vehicle to get you where you want to be.”She now plans to take three months off to work in a summer camp in the US.“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” she said, “then come back and look at my next property.”Her advice to other millennials was to ignore the naysayers: “Don’t let all the negative comments get to you … Just educate yourself. Money is easy to get. Learn from people who have done it. Don’t listen to people who haven’t done it.” More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours agoNaomi Cooper on site in Shailer Park – her first development project. Picture: Jono Searle.“The biggest eye-opener is just how accessible property is,” she said. “There are so many people complaining about how hard it is to get into the property market but the issue isn’t their age or money, the issue is their knowledge and education.”She said the program showed her how it was possible to use other people’s money and work around common ways people get into property. “I go to someone who has a lot of money and say you have money but don’t have time, invest and I’ll give a 20 per cent return and split the profit 50-50.”Mr Gould, who’s writing a book about his experiences and speaks at school assemblies about property, said his goal was to earn $1m next financial year. Naomi Cooper, who’s looking at profit of $90,000 on her first renovation project, and Jack Gould, 24, who’s looking at profit of $490,000 on his current developments. Picture: Jono Searle.A 90-SECOND pitch will land a 20-year-old developer $90,000 today, part of a program that’s changing Gen Y lives by making them property moguls.Naomi Cooper, 20, and Jack Gould, 24, were part of a 26-week intensive program called The Property Games, which teaches Gen Y participants how to succeed in property development and helps them tee up with investors to do so.Ms Cooper will today accept a profit cut of over $90,000 for a Shailer Park development, while Mr Gould has several Brisbane properties under construction where his profit will be $490,000.Property Games co-founder and chief executive of the Future Housing Taskforce Kevin Doodney said the program started after a debate over why millennials were not getting into property development – which he argued was matter of education.“I said you can select any kid from Australia from 18 to 22 and we could teach them to be good developers for rest of their lives, the only thing that separates them is ability and confidence. If we can teach them all those things in 26 weeks, they can be successful in property.”Seven were selected off 90-second video pitches made to judges – from Geelong to Sunshine Coast, Tasmania and Charters Towers.“We knew nothing (about them) other than their pitches,” Mr Doodney said. “Last year one was a junkie, and he’s completely reformed now. They had no money and no jobs at the time.”.Ms Cooper subdivided and developed a Hester Street property in Shailer Park, where her joint venture partner put up the initial property at about $550,000, with a deal to split the profits 50-50. Some of her biggest costs were over $33,000 for concreting, renovation of over $28,000, over $16,000 in earthworks, over $16,000 for council works, close to $16,000 in bank interest, and over $10,000 in engineering.last_img read more

Low-cost phones to launch in SA

By on December 19, 2019

first_img22 May 2007UK-based global cellular group Vodafone is to use South Africa as one of three countries to launch its own-name brand of low-cost mobile handsets, aimed at ensuring easier access to telephony for millions of people in developing countries.China’s ZTE Corporation is manufacturing the Vodafone 125 and the Vodafone 225, following an agreement between the two companies in late 2006, based on features, design and functionality specified by Vodafone.The two models of phones will be available in South Africa through Vodafone’s local concern, Vodacom, “in the next few weeks”, Vodafone said in a statement this week.According to Vodafone, mobile technology is the only cost-effective form of telecommunications in emerging markets and rural areas. However, the company says, the cost of purchasing a mobile handset remains a barrier to accessing such services for people living in these parts of the world.“The Vodafone 125 and Vodafone 225 handsets are intended to help drive mobile penetration, and will provide access to services for people in emerging markets that are already commonplace in Western Europe,” the company says.The two handsets are likely to retail at around US$25 and $45, depending on the specific model and the local market conditions. While the handsets are almost identical in functionality, the Vodafone 125 has a black-and-white screen and the Vodafone 225 a colour screen.“The Vodafone 125 and Vodafone 225 are the first of a range of ultra-low cost handsets which will be manufactured exclusively for Vodafone and its affiliates by ZTE Corporation,” said Vodafone’s global director of terminals, Jens Schulte-Bockum.“We are delighted that they represent everything that customers have come to expect from Vodafone – high quality and exceptional value for money.”SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Young South Africans act for change

By on December 18, 2019

first_img30 July 2012Young South Africans making a meaningful change in their communities and the country were honoured for their contributions at the inaugural South African Youth Awards in Midrand, Johannesburg on Saturday.The event was hosted by the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) to recognise outstanding achievements by South Africans between the ages of 14 and 35.The awards were divided into nine categories: academic excellence, arts and entertainment, entrepreneurship, extraordinary champions, health and wellbeing, science and technology, social cohesion, environment and the Presidential Award.“The winners are examples of what can be achieved when one is dedicated,” Deputy Performance Monitoring Minister in the Presidency Obed Bapela said at the ceremony.“It’s also proof that it’s not always about what the country can do for you but rather what you can do for your country.”Inspiration to ‘soar beyond the sky’It was the Durban-born Nolwazi Pinkie Madlala who stole the limelight on the night, as she won the the Extraordinary Champion Award and Overall Award – known as the Presidential Award. The disabled Madlala is currently working on her thesis for her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology.The NYDA said Madlala is an inspiration to others to “soar beyond the sky”.Other winners included Peter Malati, who won the Academic Excellence Award. He runs a Chemistry project in six high schools in Nokaneng Circuit in Mpumalanga, mentoring rural learners in science and engineering.Ross McReath received the Health and Wellbeing Award for running a cricket club that provides diversion for youth in Nolukhanyo Township in the Eastern Cape. The club gives youth in the area access to professional trials and also gives them a chance to experience life beyond township boundaries.The Social Cohesion Award went to North West-born Lebogang Bogopane, who works as a volunteer at a 24-hour centre for abused and abandoned women and children.Building a brighter futureAlso among the winners was Ntombomzi Tsotetsi, who was honoured for her contribution in environment. Tsotetsi is a farmer and hosts workshops in her community about the environment, climate change and how to grow organic vegetables.The Science and Technology Award went to 25-year-old Sir Stuart Ntlathi who invented a 15-in-1 microwave oven, an electronic Vuvuzela and an automatic shoe polisher.Ntlathi will be joining Sir Branson in the Virgin galactic space trip and said education is the key to success. “Geniuses themselves don’t talk about the gift of genius, but hard work and long hours.”The Arts and Culture Award went to Paul Modjadji, who has also won the Global Youth leadership Award from the Global Youth Leadership Congress in Washington, DC for his contribution to the dance community.The Hammanskraal-born Modjadji believes that he is an agent of change through his dancing – which has seen him receiving standing ovations on world stages, including Denmark and New York.Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

Q&A with founder of Champion South Africa

By on

first_imgWell-known radio host Ashraf Garda challenges South Africans to change their mindsets to become champions in everything they do. Read more about his initiative, Champion South Africa.Ashraf Garda, co-founder of Champion South Africa, says he wants to multiply the number of champions in the country to help turn South Africa into a champion nation. (Images supplied)Melissa JavanSouth Africa will become a champion nation when the government, business and civil society synchronise their efforts towards the goal of becoming individual and collective champions. This is according to Ashraf Garda, who is the co-founder of Champion South Africa.“Champion people build champion people and only champion people build champion nations,” he says.The movement, launched in November 2015, is currently asking: What are you doing to build your country?Several local leaders, such as Vusi Thembekayo, Khanyi Dhlomo and Yvonne Chaka Chaka, were chosen to be part of Champion South Africa, so they too can spread the message and urge more people to become champions.Brand South Africa sat down for a question and answer session with Garda about Champion South Africa.Watch Ashraf Garda motivate an audience to help build Champion South Africa:Melissa Javan: Tell us about the journey of Champion South Africa.Ashraf Garda: The Champion South Africa concept started after I had many conversations with people on the talk show I host on Radio SA FM. [We would] talk about their aspirations and moving the country to another level.I kept hearing “If you have an idea, just start with it.”My son, Zaahid, is in marketing and owns a start-up called Student Photography. We talked about my idea and worked together to start Champion South Africa. We are the founders.Zaahid GardaMJ: What is the aim of Champion South Africa?AG: Firstly, as Champion South Africa we want to change the mindset of South Africans. We currently have a mid-table mindset, but we want to change it to the “okay is not good enough” mindset.Collectively and individually everyone should be champions in whatever they are doing. This is so that the country will have more champions. The country needs us to become a champion nation. That’s why you need the change in the mindset of the people.Secondly, we have to change the mindset of the country. Champion is a noun; we want the world to think about a champion nation when people think about South Africa.There’s no world cup of nations – there is no competition like that. If there ever was one, then the vision would be that the United Nations secretary-general would in the future announce South Africa as a champion nation.To achieve this, we need to increase the number of champions we have in the country.Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters is congratulated as 2017 Miss South Africa in March this year:This is @DemiLeighNP SA’s newest champion #MissSA2017 @Official_MissSA ! #ChampionSouthAfrica @MIssKunene pic.twitter.com/4swFibmAdD— ChampionSouthAfrica (@ChampionSAfrica) March 26, 2017MJ: What is the aim of Champion South Africa’s Twitter campaign #BuildChampionSouthAfrica?AG: We decided we would have a campaign that would last a few weeks. With the #BuildChampionSouthAfrica campaign we ask: “What are you doing to build South Africa?”It’s a tactical campaign that talks about the personal actions of each individual South African. We want everyone to have the licence to say “My mission is to build a champion South Africa.”Well-known people such as social cohesion advocate Yusuf Abramjee talk about why they are building a champion South Africa:This how @Abramjee wants to #BuildChampionSouthAfrica pic.twitter.com/Ocbhl19Q0C— ChampionSouthAfrica (@ChampionSAfrica) March 25, 2017Hang on to this message to #BuildChampionSouthAfrica from @DrRidwanMia – Share this and send us your video about your nation building plans pic.twitter.com/5IY71RujRm— ChampionSouthAfrica (@ChampionSAfrica) March 24, 2017Energized by human rights makes @Abeyphonogenic determined to #BuildChampionSouthAfrica @OgilvyCT @OgilvyJoburg @OgilvyCT pic.twitter.com/Wy4X2eAO8q— ChampionSouthAfrica (@ChampionSAfrica) March 25, 2017MJ: In a recent radio interview you spoke about a 10-point plan, saying it speaks about the attitudes you should have as a nation. Can you elaborate?AG: We are busy drawing up a 10-point plan, still busy drafting it. We welcome the public’s feedback. You can give suggestions about what you think are the things that are going to make a shift [in the country].For example, what specific goals do you think we should have as a nation and secondly, as individuals?Champion South Africa recognises people, such as actress Connie Ferguson, who receive international acknowledgement for their hard work:[email protected]_Ferguson you living legend #AWA2016 #ChampionSouthAfrica #SABCNews pic.twitter.com/YcCljITO8s— ChampionSouthAfrica (@ChampionSAfrica) December 6, 2016MJ: You also said mentorship was linked to nation-building. Why is mentorship important for Champion South Africa?AG: Mentorship is critically important. The one-on-one connection can impact on a person completely. There are many forms of mentorship. You can get mentorship through watching someone on television or YouTube.If someone is an 18-year-old, that person needs a Champion South African to mentor him.We’ve had requests from people who want to volunteer. If people are interested in being Champion South Africa volunteers, a form of mentorship can be done, such as talking at schools or to their community, spreading the message of being Champion South African. We school them on how to do it.Last year, we asked more than 20 people to be Champions South Africans. All of them said yes. They are people such as Khanyi Dhlomo, Kass Naidoo, Felicia Mabuza-Suttle, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Snowy Khoza and Yusuf Abramjee.We’re going to have four tiers of Champion South Africa. We want to identify up to 40 people in each level.The first tier is the Champion South Africans. The second tier is called Future Champions. They are people who have a potential to become Champion South Africans. Thirdly, you’ll get the student champion, and the fourth tier will be the community champion.MJ: On Twitter you started the hashtag #TeamOfTheWeek in which you ask people to nominate people who had done great things. Tell us about #TeamOfTheWeek.AG: We choose a person for #TeamOfTheWeek because it was someone who had done something remarkable within of period of seven days.Just because you are in the #TeamOfTheWeek does not mean you are a Champion South African but it does mean your contribution will help to build a nation of champions. A Champion South African is someone who is formidable and is a globally known player.What can South Africans do if they want to be part of Champion South Africa?People such as Nelson Mandela and Ahmed Kathrada were Champion South Africans. We need to honour them by ultimately becoming champions like them. They passed on the baton to us.Our grandchildren will reflect on us. If we are not producing new champions, then we are not making a significant shift in the country. Remember, champion people build champion people. Champion people build a champion nation.Each one of us is on the field of play. You have to commit to be the best person for your country.You need to up your game to be in one of those tiers of Champion South Africa. If you change your mindset [to be a champion in everything you do], then you are already part of the Champion South Africa movement.The Champion South African listOn the first tier are the Champion South Africans:1. Felicia Mabuza-Suttle – well-known television host, businesswoman and motivational speaker.2. Snowy Khoza – CEO of Bigen Africa and the founding chair of Knowledge Management South Africa.3.

Google PageRank Powers Endangered Species Hierarchy

By on December 17, 2019

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… It’s always amazing to see the lengths people will go to get a photograph of a cheetah, lion or African hunting dog. For some, it never occurs to them that as they stumble out of their car to adjust tripods and flashes, a rare predator is quietly considering eating them. In the circle of life there are many players and while there’s no shortage of people, there are unfortunately thousands of endangered animals and plants. Biologists have been looking for ways to determine the most important species based on the number of feeding-related interactions, and surprisingly the Google search algorithm is playing a part. There are almost 4706 animals and 4295 plants on the worldwide endangered animals list and it’s difficult to determine which extinctions would be the most devastating. Food web biologist Stefano Allesina was featured in Wired magazine for using a modified version of Google’s search algorithm PageRank to determine just that. Allesina and Mercedes Pascual first wrote about utilizing PageRank in their recently published Googling Food Webs: Can an Eigenvector Measure Species’ Importance for Coextinctions?. Said Allesina, “In PageRank, you’re an important website if important websites point to you. We took that idea and reversed it: Species are important if they support important species.”The biologists use PageRank by multiplying the rate of extinction for one species and determining the rate at which others are affected. The animals and plants that link to a large number of connectors are considered keystones. In other words, if you’re an integral player in either preparing or being dinner for a large number of species, you are the keystone for an entire ecological network.Because many species need others to survive, the worst possible case for an extinction is a domino-style co-extinction effect. Allesina and Pascual aim to determine these worst scenario cases and encourage conservationist intervention. For more information read the entire report at PLoS Computational Biology.

Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netFor Jonathan Uyloan playing somewhere else is better than not playing at all.With Meralco set to put him in the reserve list, the sharpshooting guard made the bold decision and asked the management to allow him to play for Cignal HD in the 2017 PBA D-League Foundation Cup.ADVERTISEMENT But more than anything, what the Fil-Am guard treasures more is the chance to be with this group of guys, a mix of veteran campaigners and aspiring amateurs, all seeking to make it to the PBA.“It was great, being around with guys who are hungry to get better in basketball and are trying to make it to the PBA. I’m happy to help out and show that it all starts with integrity and hardwork first. And it all paid off,” he said.With this short stint now over, Uyloan is positive that he has made a good account of himself as he returns to the Bolts.“I just hope that they see that wherever I’m at, I’ll work hard. With Rain or Shine, I was able to win a championship for the first time. And then, when I was with GlobalPort, that team went to the semifinals for the first time. With Meralco, we made it to the Finals for the first time. Then here in Cignal, we became back-to-back champions. Every team I’ve been on, it’s been a blessing,” he said.“I don’t know what it is. But I just know that where I come from, it’s all hard work and you got to show it in every team you go. Every part of the team is valuable and whatever they bring individually, collectively, it’s going to be great.”ADVERTISEMENT WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding “I asked Meralco if I could play with Cignal and everything worked out well. Some people may think it’s a demotion, but for me, it’s a blessing. I have a contract with Meralco and I have a contract with Cignal. I was pretty much working two jobs,” he said.Turns out, it was the right move with Uyloan going as far as citing this stint with the Hawkeyes as one of the best decisions he’s ever made.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“It was probably the best move of my career.

I wasn’t the superstar, I had to work my way up, so going back to Cignal rejuvenated my basketball career.”Suiting up in time for the playoffs, Uyloan averaged 8.0 points on a 39 percent shooting from threes, 3.5 rebounds, and 4.5 assists as he became a valuable contributor for Cignal’s back-to-back title wins in the developmental ranks.
