Researching massive growth in giving. “Remove children’s photos” from school Web sites Edinburgh council has advised head teachers to remove or blur photos of schoolchildren on their school Web sites to protect them from contact or identification by paedophiles. Such issues have been faced by children’s charities. How do you promote the work of a children’s charity without publishing pictures of the children the charity has already helped or is working to assist? The Edinburgh council ./guidance paper acknowledges that “a school Web site without pictures of pupils would appear very dry and may seem unrealistic,” but they argue that schools could be held responsible if any children are placed in danger as a result of Web site publication.

  • AH Celebrates Completion of New Borough Hall

    first_imgATLANTIC HIGHLANDS — “Finally,” said John Scheidt, president of Santorini Construction company, offering a sigh of relief and a smile of appreciation as the borough celebrated the completion of a two-year, $6 million renovation of the borough municipal building at 100 First Ave.Though a few small tasks remain to be done before the building is fully operational, Scheidt joined Mayor Frederick J. Rast III, the Borough Council, former mayors and borough employees in a New Year’s Day ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new facility.While the project was more expensive than projected and slightly behind the projected timeline, there were extenuating circumstances that contributed to the cost increases and delays, said Borough Administrator Adam Hubeny.Those included changes and upgrades the governing body agreed upon, and some snags related to utility work and issues with the weather, Hubeny said.The project came in at approximately $300,000 over the initial cost projections.Rast and the governing body decided to move forward with the renovation and expansion project back in 2009, to address long discussed concerns about the old borough facilty.Officials had admitted the municipal building, which contains its business offices, public library and police headquarters and dates back to 1970, had become too small to accommodate modern needs, did not adhere to handicap accessibility requirements, and had developed moisture and mold problems. Rast, with the support of the six-member council (four Republican and two Democrats), said it would be financially prudent for them to move forward with a plan to renovate and add additional space. He argued, given the economic climate many contractors faced, the borough would likely get very attractive bids and quite low interest rates, making it a propitious time to undertake the large project.“They had enough foresight to move forward with this project in difficult economic times,” the mayor said of the council. “They really saved a lot of money.”The borough also saved some money by taking an offer from the Avaya telecommunications company, which offered the borough office furniture from its closed Middletown facility. That, Rast said, probably saved about $100,000. Another cost saving measure, officials have said in the past, was for the local library to join the county system, with the county responsible for salaries and benefits.“Unless you’ve worked in construction, it’s difficult to appreciate a renovation as opposed to a new construction,” explained project architect Eli Goldstein. “And this was no ordinary renovation.”The project took the site’s existing 10,000 square feet and expanded it by another 8,000, officials explained when they broke ground on the project in March 2010. With the added space, “This building will allow us to grow,” and should continue to be viable for another 50 years or more, Hubeny said.And in the final analysis, Hubeny said, “You will be very happy as residents and taxpayers when you see what was done inside.”“We are happy with what we have,” said Police Chief Gerard Vasto of his new police headquarters.The old headquarters were built in 1970 and “built for 1970,” he said. Now, “Everything flows so well downstairs,” where the department will be situated, he said.“The officers will truly have a police headquarters that is truly functional,” the chief said, noting the department should be housed in the new facility within the week.Atlantic Highlands Mayor Fred Rast cuts the ribbon at the newly-renovated Borough Hall.last_img read more

  • Locally built Gautrains on the way

    first_img28 July 2008 Buckley said the plant boasted extensive facilities for static and dynamic testing, ensuring maximum reliability of rolling stock, irrespective of rail gauge, climatic conditions and operating requirements. He said the government would link up all the small and medium enterprises in the region with some of the people currently working on the Gautrain, a move which could turn the region into a base for the rail industry as a whole. UCW Gautrain project manager Paul Buckley said all 81 cars would be completed and ready for delivery on 24 February 2009. Once fully operational, the plant will employ 85 people – 17 of whom who are currently being trained at Bombardier’s (the train manufacturer’s) facilities in Derby in the United Kingdom. The group has been in the UK for about four months now, and are being trained in produce knowledge, competency assessments, transfer of technology training, and computer programming.

See: Using SAinfo material Huge challenge “We are ready, we had to be on time,” he said, adding that they company was both proud and fortunate to be entrusted with the innovative and ground-breaking transport system – the first of its kind in the country. Bombardier’s Derby assembly plant will send an additional 10 staff members to constitute the core of the assembly teams when the production commences in Nigel. “It’s not just the trains; signalling and driving are very important; we also need conductors and so forth. We need many South Africans to become artisans and become train drivers,” Shilowa said. Gauteng’s East Rand is set to realise the benefits of the Gautrain, with 81 out of 96 of the high-speed train’s coaches to be assembled at the Union Carriage and Wagon plant in Nigel, to the east of Johannesburg. “The Nigel facility is purpose designed and built for the manufacture, refurbishment and overhauling of all types of rolling stock,” he said. SAinfo reporter They are then expected to train the remaining 68 workers as part of skills and technology transfer that had been built into the Gautrain project contract. Speaking at the recent handover of the first 15 trainsets for Gautrain at Derby in the United Kingdom, Gauteng Premier Mbhazima Shilowa said: “It is my hope that as we do the rest of the work and assembly, we will boost the economic activity around Brakpan, Springs and Nigel, that will create much-needed jobs there”. UCW managing director Palello Lebaka said the company had invested some R15-million in their Nigel assembly plant to prepare it to work on coaches for the Gautrain. “More than R5-million of that amount [was] invested in training,” he said in a statement from the Gauteng provincial government last week, adding that equipping the company’s personnel with the right skills was a priority. Already, a team of three people – the project manager, operations manager and the inventory control personnel – are based at the Nigel plant to see that it is in order. Lebaka boasts that they are ready for the huge challenge, with assembly of the coaches starting next month, on 12 August, adding that the team had done well to finish the plant a month ago.last_img read more

  • Career Day in Diepsloot

    first_imgThe future of the country lies in the hands of South Africa’s young people. With this in mind, Transnet Rail Freight, in partnership with the Methodist Church of Southern Africa, hosted a Career Day in Diepsloot, in northern Johannesburg, for local high school children.The message from the speakers was consistent – education is the key.Former radio presenter Hector Motau spoke about his road to becoming a motivational speakerTransnet Freight Rail’s Caesar Mtetwa, who is also the president of the National Society of Black Engineers, pointed out the urgent need for engineers in South Africa.“This country needs 15 000 skilled engineers, but only 1 500 quality each year – it’s not enough.” Without engineers, there would be no roads, no electricity… no malls, the youngsters were told.Such skills were required to build the country’s infrastructure and support its economic growth – creating jobs.Some sobering facts raised during the day included: in the age group of 18- to 24-year-olds there were some 2.4 million people who had matric but who were unemployed; and that some 4.7 million people of working age were unable to find work.However, some initiatives are under way to tackle unemployment. The pupils were told about bursaries available, were given advice on accessing funds and information, and also learned more about several career paths. Transnet offers financial support to students who go on to university, provided they get 60% for maths and science for matric.Mtwetwa noted that in 2013, Transnet sponsored 1 000 university students – although it had been prepared to fund double that number. “There are people waiting to help you,” he told the young audience. “Just study hard to get those marks.”Another organisation represented on the Career Day panel, Harambee, told pupils how it helped high-potential matriculants aged between 18 and 28 by preparing them for the workplace and then finding a suitable match for them with partner companies.Harambee’s Lebo Nke noted the importance of young people staying in employment for at least a year. She pointed out that if they succeeded, the chances of remaining in employment for the rest of their working life increased by 85%.Grade 10 learner Clive Molubi (left) from Leap High School saw the day as an important event as he wanted to find out about different job opportunitiesMany of the panellists shared their own experiences, giving hope to the Diepsloot youngsters. Grade 10 learner Clive Molubi from Leap High School saw the day as an important event as he wanted to find out about different job opportunities. “I’m preparing for my future,” he added.Former radio presenter Hector Motau spoke about his road to becoming a motivational speaker, describing how, as a young student from a rural village, he had set up TNT Radio, the first campus radio in the country. TNT was Technikon Northern Transvaal and is now Tshwane University of Technology.“So what’s your excuse,” he challenged the young listeners.Each panellist offered pragmatic advice to the pupils, most of whom were in grades nine, 10 and 11 at local high schools: prepare for your future now, don’t delay; set goals and act on them; choose a career path that interests you; get rid of any distractions that sway you from your path; and read.Sponsors of the Career Day included Brand South Africa, Cell C, the Gauteng Department of Agriculture, Harambee, the South West Gauteng College, Junior Chamber International and Cida City Campus.Tables were set up with experts on hand to offer career advice.last_img read more
