South Africa looks to build on film, TV incentives

By on December 18, 2019

first_img30 May 2014 The government will continue to improve its incentive scheme for South Africa’s film and television industry, Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies said at a meeting with members of the industry on Thursday. Davies said the film industry had demonstrated that it had the capacity to contribute significantly to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). “It’s for that reason that we have been working to continuously improve the film incentive. A baseline study by the National Film and Video Foundation said that the film sector contributed R3.5-billion to South Africa’s GDP,” he said. “It created more than 25 000 full-time jobs. That is a significant number of jobs and a significant contribution to the GDP.” Davies noted that a beefing up of the Department of Trade and Industry’s (DTI’s) film and TV incentive scheme in 2008 had shown impressive results. From its inception in 2004 through to 2008, the scheme supported 49 productions, whereas between 2008 and 2013 it supported 398 projects. Of these, 256 were South African productions, 77 were co-productions (with other countries), and 65 were foreign productions.Improving the scheme While this was good news, Davies said, there was still room for improvement – hence the department’s continued engagement with the industry. “There are a few features of the current rebate we need to [look at]. We have to have an incentive that is competitive with what exists around the world. We need to be frank about the fact that we are a small, developing economy.” Being competitive was important not only in monetary terms but also in terms of “the certainty and reliability of the scheme, so that when filmmakers come, they know that it’s not just a vague promise that is made to them but it is a certainty,” he said. The scheme also needed to be continuously improved in line with what was happening in the industry, both domestically and abroad. “It’s about making adaptations when they are necessary.”‘More than just a good location’ South Africa, Davies said, should be seen as more than just a good location for films. “We still have that, but I think we need to make it clear to the world that we’ve moved on to things like the ability to provide a world-class film studio in Cape Town. Also, companies are moving into the production of animated films, which are particularly popular. [We] also have the ability to produce the industrial materials that go into the construction of sets.” Davies added that the department was looking into the issue of supporting smaller black film makers. “It’s something under active consideration. We are looking at how we can address that concern.” Filmmaker Eric Miyeni and Film Afrika representative Rudi van As, who attended the meeting, described the DTI’s rebate as a “lifeblood for the South African film and television industry, which is regarded as being very efficient”. “Unlike some incentive schemes out there, it is reliable. This allows filmmakers to predict accurately how much their rebate amount will be and that it will materialise,” said Van As. Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Task.fm: A Remember The Milk Alternative

By on December 17, 2019

first_imgMassive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Tags:#enterprise#Products#saas Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Related Posts 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Nowcenter_img IT + Project Management: A Love Affair It might not have a Gmail gadget and an iPhone app, but reminder service Task.fm is a good alternative to popular productivity tool Remember The Milk. If you don’t need all the other bells and whistles, Task.fm is a good choice. The user experience is clean and simple, and the reminders by email, phone or SMS work like a charm. This week it added contacts and groups, yet another strong basic feature integrated into its simple reminder service.Twitter-like TasksTask.fm doesn’t have nearly as long a feature checklist as Remember The Milk, but it compares well to other vendors in this space. The newest addition to Task.fm is a simple yet important aspect: contacts and groups that can be CC’d to a reminder through email. Its core user experience is well-designed, and has an input system that shows strong hints of Twitter. Though there’s an advanced version with other options, the default way to add a reminder is through a 140 character message typed out in natural language. Task.fm converts that automatically to a name, date, and other information. Phone RemindersThe real strength of the service is in its reminder system. Adding email or mobile notifications means Task.fm beats a bare bones todo-list like Gmail Tasks hands down. Along with email and SMS reminders that come free, paid accounts get phone reminders as well. So far as we can tell, the only thing really holding back Task.fm is that at $10/month, its price point is higher than RTM or some other services, which can go as low as $25/year. However, the fact that RTM doesn’t seem to have phone reminders as either a free or paid option may be what you’re paying extra for. Either way, anyone hunting for a new way to manage tasks should definitely take a peek at Task.fm. steven wallinglast_img read more

Upcoming Webinar – Month of the Family Caregiver: Organizations Responding to Hidden Heroes

By on December 12, 2019

first_imgCreated using Canva.comNovember is National Family Caregiver Month!During this month we like to show our appreciation for all of the hard work and sacrifices family caregivers make for their loved ones. This year we have created a learning opportunity for family caregivers to learn more about two organizations and their missions to support all caregivers but especially the 5.5 million military caregivers in the United States. The responsibilities of a military caregiver may include a wounded service member but also a person with a special healthcare need or development disability.We will be highlighting two organizations, Easterseals and Operation Family Caregiver (OFC), during this webinar and have representatives from both participate in an engaging session on their organizations’ response to military caregiving and how these resources can help the caregiver.Below is more information about each of the organizations that will have representatives joining us in our Month of the Family Caregiver: Organizations Responding to Hidden Heroes webinar.Easterseals has been helping individuals with disabilities and special needs, and their families for over 100 years through services and support surrounding medical rehabilitation, employment and training, children’s services, adult and senior services, and camping and recreation. More recently Easterseals has responded to military caregiving by providing support for caregivers and their families through respite care, inclusive childcare, employment and career services, transportation, behavioral/physical health services and advocacy at the federal and local levels.Operation Family Caregiver (OFC) is a program within the Rosalynn Carter Institute (RCI) for Caregiving at Georgia Southwestern State University. RCI supports caregivers – both family and professional caregivers through advocacy, education, research and service. OFC coaches the families of returning service members and veterans to manage the difficulties they face when returning. The program has been implemented across the nation and within communities to teach military families how to best navigate the challenges that come with caregiving in order to build a stronger family network. Certificate of Completion Available!The MFLN Military Caregiving concentration will provide a Certificate of Completion following this session.Interested in Joining the Webinar?To join this event, simply click on Month of the Military Caregiver: Organizations Responding to Hidden Heroes.

Jamaicans Urged to Get Involved in the Fight Against Breast Cancer

By on October 24, 2019

first_img The support system for women must include activities geared towards early detection. Story Highlights Health Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, has urged all Jamaicans to become more active in the fight against breast cancer, as the disease affects not only the women who physically experience the effects, but also families and the society as a whole.“This involvement must not only rest with the women…knowing (about) it, that is not enough, get involved. It is a duty on the part of men, and the families,” he said.Dr. Ferguson made the call in a message read by Medical Epidemiologist, Dr. Tamu Davidson on October 24, at the Jamaica Cancer Society (JCS) and Reach to Recovery’s ‘Keeping Abreast’ luncheon, held at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in New Kingston.The Health Minister said that the support system for women must include activities geared towards early detection, to prevent the great cost associated with treatment.He pointed out that drug treatment for one case of breast cancer can cost between $3 million and $4 million. “That can drive comfortable people to poverty, and poor people to hopelessness,” he said.Dr. Ferguson is therefore urging women to get screened, stating that the principle of early detection must be fully embraced.He noted that 249 women die each year from breast cancer. “The number is too large to bear when we consider the pain and suffering and the loss of love, not to mention productive capacity,” he stated.In her remarks, Executive Director of the Jamaica Cancer Society (JCS), Yulit Gordon, said that the organisation, and its breast cancer support group, Jamaica Reach to Recovery, are moving urgently to implement strategies to arrest the prevalence of the disease.She noted that breast cancer affects women in their most productive years; and the emotional and financial burden results in severe hardship for the individual, families and the wider society.She said that while all relevant research underscores the benefit of early detection, many Jamaican women continue to be diagnosed too late for successful treatment.Mrs. Gordon said some of the reasons for this include lack of awareness, failure to take action, limited financial support, and the perception that doing a mammogram is extremely painful.“It is for these reasons why the Jamaica Cancer Society, through an intense public awareness programme, screening, early detection and treatment, has been providing screening to approximately 7,000 women each year,” she informed.This is done at the Society’s 16 Lady Musgrave Road location, and through its mobile mammography programme. The JCS is now trying to raise US$335,000 to acquire a new mobile unit, to replace the current one.According to the JCS, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in Jamaica, and the leading cause of related death among young women.The luncheon is the premier activity held each year by the JCS and Jamaica Reach to Recovery, to honour all women, who have survived the disease.This year’s special guest was five-time World Champion/Three-time Olympic medalist and breast cancer survivor, Novelene Williams Mills.Contact: Alphea Saunders Dr. Ferguson says breast cancer affects families and the society as a whole. Drug treatment for one case of breast cancer can cost between $3 million and $4 million. last_img read more
