The 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign, which kicks off on Monday, challenges South Africans to declare a truce on violence against women and children – and, ultimately, to make it a permanent one.The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is an international campaign originating from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute sponsored by the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership in 1991. Participants chose the 16 days, from 25 November, International Day Against Violence Against Women, to International Human Rights Day on 10 December, to symbolically link violence against women and human rights and to emphasize that such violence is a violation of human rights.The days cover other significant dates such as International Women Human Rights Defenders Day on 29 November 29 and World Aids Day on 1 December.Minister for women, children and people with disabilities Lulu Xingwana will officially launch the campaign, in partnership with North West premier Thandi Modise, at Mmabatho Stadium in Mafikeng on Sunday 24 November.The opening ceremony will take the form of an interactive session with community members, and will be joined by representatives from People Opposing Women Abuse, Sonke Gender Justice, Childline and Disabled People South Africa. The media is invited to attend.The international theme for this year’s 16 Days campaign is “From peace in the home to peace in the world: Let’s challenge militarism and end violence against women”. Under the theme, the campaign will focus on three priority areas:Threatened or actual violence perpetrated by state actors to maintain or attain powerDomestic violence and the role of small armsSexual violence during and after conflictYear-long activismWhile the campaign runs only for 16 days each year, its objectives are reinforced by a year-long programme and a national plan to combat abuse.South Africa is still home to high levels of violence against its women and children, despite a world-renowned Constitution and a legislative overhaul that safeguards women’s and children’s rights.The government, business, civil society organisations, faith-based organisations and the media are all participating in the drive to increase awareness of the negative impact of violence and abuse on women and children.The campaign also aims to:Challenge the perpetrators of violence to change their behaviour.Involve men in helping to eradicate violence.Provide survivors with information on services and organisations that can help lessen the impact of violence on their lives.What you can doSouth Africans are urged to support the campaign by wearing a white ribbon – a symbol of peace – during the 16-day period to symbolise their commitment to never commit or condone violence against women or children.Other ways to support the campaign:Like it on Facebook and follow it on Twitter at @16DaysCampaign. The hashtag for the campaign is #16days.Speak out against woman and child abuse. Encourage silent female victims to challenge abuse, and ensure that they get help. Report child abuse to the police immediately. Encourage children to report bullying behaviour to school authorities.Men are critical partners in the fight against the abuse of women and children. Men and boys are encouraged to talk about abuse and actively discourage abusive behaviour.Families must stick together to create a safe environment for women and children.Parents and adults can make sure that children are not exposed to sexual and violent material such as pornography.Volunteer some of your time and energy in support of a non-governmental organisation or community group working in your area to help abused women and children.

For information on how to join, contact your local police station.Rhetoric and realitySouth Africa, according to non-governmental organisation Gender Links, needs to close the gap between the “rhetoric of gender equality” and the “reality on the ground”.Gender Links says the country has made impressive strides in recognising the roles and rights of women and children.The Constitution recognises gender equality as the cornerstone of South Africa’s democracy, and new legislation – such as the Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act and the Domestic Violence Act – have been lauded for enforcing the rights of women.But more needs to be done. “Changing laws can be swift,” says Gender Links. “Giving them effect, and changing the mindsets that often render them ineffective, is a much more demanding task.”last_img read more

Innovate100: Enter to Be The World’s Most Promising Startup

first_imgThe Guidewire Group just launched its Innovate!100 competition to highlight the most promising companies of the year. Early-stage startups are encouraged to submit applications and compete in one of 22 pitch slam events across Europe and North America. Winners will enjoy global visibility and may share in sponsored awards including cash and in-kind prizes, valued at over $1 million dollars. In addition to being an international competition, one of the things that makes this contest different from other events is the fact that shortlisted companies’ assessments will be made public. ReadWriteWeb caught up with former DEMO producer and Guidewire Group President Mike Sigal to find out why he’s sharing his company’s secret sauce through something called the G/Score. Contrary to popular belief, the G/Score is not a rating of your startup’s street smarts. The score is the Guidewire Group’s attempt to rate your company across a variety of categories and help you improve your prospects. The company’s assessors include VCs, journalists, economic development strategists and executives from companies like Microsoft, Motorola and Research in Motion. Scores are assigned to demystify what investors, media and partners yearn to discover – namely, are you a fit? Says Sigal, “Investors have a fiduciary duty and it’s not our place to give investment advice. What we’re doing is creating a resource to highlight companies and make them accessible to the greater community… The response from entrepreneurs is that fundamentally, if it means that we’ll save them time by connecting them with the right people, they’re all for it.”While the top company scores will be made public for the Innovate!100 Program, entrepreneurs who choose to work with Guidewire on subsequent G/Scores have the option to keep their scores private and apply for re-scoring after correcting their weaknesses. Because all pitch slam finalists will be judged using the scorecard, those applying should consider the following questions as they pertain to the Guidewire methodology: BusinessThis part of the G/Score is all about the nature of your business idea.1. Concept: Can you prove a need for your product? Will you create a new market or disrupt existing leaders?2. Market: Are there enough potential customers to create a compelling business? Will you have to share the market with a lot of other players?3. Competition: Who else is competing for your market’s attention? (Sigal explains that this isn’t just direct competitors, but indirect competitors, alternatives and even customer indifference or inertia).ExecutionThis section is all about reality, not projections. Here you are expected to give a picture of your everyday business.1. Business: How many users, partners and major stakeholders do you currently have? What is your adoption rate amongst them?2. Product: Does your product exist or is it just an idea? If it does exist, do you have user adoption? If you were to stop providing a service today, would your customers have noticeably worse lives?TeamHaving a team of famous second-time entrepreneurs is great, but not if you’ve only got engineers. Have you got a well-rounded team of individuals who can fulfill the responsibilities of running a successful business? Business ModelA revenue stream is not a business model unless it has been proven through a repeatable process. In his own words, Sigal says, “This section is all about the Benjamins. Are you making money and can you continue to make money over time?”FundingAre you self-funded, seed funded and/or VC funded from $2.5 million to more than $25 million dollars?

10 months agoMan Utd must emulate Liverpool with £100m move for Koulibaly – May

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Man Utd must emulate Liverpool with £100m move for Koulibaly – Mayby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United should spend £100m on Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to David May.Koulibably has emerged as United’s prime defensive target, but Napoli are not letting him leave on the cheap.But May says the money would be justified given Koulibaly’s talents, citing Virgil van Dijk’s impact at Liverpool since his world-record move last January.Former Red Devils star May told 888sport: “If you look at United over the last God knows how many years they’ve always gone out and broke transfer records if need be.”They did with Rio [Ferdinand], [Angel] Di Maria, [Paul] Pogba, [Romelu] Lukaku. They allegedly pay [Alexis] Sanchez half a million a week.”If you want the best players then you have to pay top money for them. City do it.”Liverpool did it with Van Dijk and just look at the transformation.”They spent £70 million on a goalkeeper, which is a hell of a lot of money but what that gets you back is guaranteed Champions League football and the possibility of winning the Premier League.”The amount of money United earn then to spend £100m on a defender….so what?”Real Madrid will spend it. Barca will. Chelsea and City will.”If it guarantees you a much better defence then go ahead and spend it.”If Koulibaly becomes available – and there are rumours that he is interested with a fee of £90m – then I’m sure Ole would say he’d be a great signing for Man Utd.” last_img read more

Trudeau announces 90million contribution to twin deadly Nova Scotia highway

first_imgSUTHERLANDS RIVER, N.S. – It’s been called a 38-kilometre death trap, a treacherous stretch of Nova Scotia highway that in the last decade has seen hundreds of accidents, multiple fatalities and desperate pleas for help from residents.Many hope those calls were answered Tuesday with a $90-million funding commitment from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, which along with $195 million from the province will go towards twinning the busy thoroughfare that cuts through the province’s north leading to Cape Breton.The Pictou County community has fought for years to get improvements for Highway 104, with local fire Chief Joe MacDonald leading the charge.He’s lost family along the hazardous roadway and has been on the scene of gruesome motor vehicle accidents more times than he can count.“There are a lot of stories right here in this little section of road,” said the chief of the Barneys River Volunteer Fire Department, at times choking back tears.“This is a very emotional place for me.”The announcement — part of Trudeau’s visit to Nova Scotia — was bookended by an early morning stop at a cafe in Truro and an afternoon picnic in Antigonish.He was briefly interrupted while delivering remarks to a crowd on the grounds of St. Francis Xavier University by protesters opposed to the Kinder Morgan pipeline.“Unfortunately, there are folks that still think there is a choice to be made between protecting the environment and growing the economy,” Trudeau said above the heckling.He also touched on increases to the Canada child benefit and the importance of immigration, before he entered the crowd to shake hands and pose for selfies.Though much of the prime minister’s day resembled a typical summer barbecue circuit, the new highway funding is significant for the area.A crowd outside a school near the busy highway offered up boisterous applause when the funding was announced.“Not only will this project alleviate the bottleneck and get more vehicles moving, but most importantly it’s also expected to reduce fatalities on this stretch of the highway by 80 per cent,” Trudeau said.“This is a major project that the province, municipality and local leaders like Joe have been calling for for years.”It’s estimated that 15,000 vehicles pass along the highway from Sutherlands River to Antigonish every day, including 2,500 trucks, making it a critical link for trade and transport to Newfoundland and Labrador.Premier Stephen McNeil said requests will go out next week to the private sector to build the highway in a P3 — or public, private partnership — model. He said it will not be a tolled highway.“It’s about saving lives. It’s about ensuring the men and women, who we ask to serve our community day in, day out and volunteer fire service or emergency services, that they get the support they need,” he told the crowd, which included firefighters and police.The province had previously announced that it would twin the portion of highway, but did not have a commitment from the federal government.The project will see 28 kilometres of the highway twinned, and a new 10-kilometre, four-lane highway built. It’s scheduled to be completed by 2024.Since 2009 there have been over 414 accidents on the highway and 16 fatalities, but the highway’s reputation as a perilous road stretches back years.Central Nova MP Sean Fraser, who grew up near the highway, recalled warnings from his parents.“You wouldn’t believe the number of times my father said to me, ‘Watch Marshy Hope, there’s freezing rain tonight. Be careful when you’re coming through the mountains,’” he said.“It’s a dangerous stretch of road and the community knows it.”Fraser said locals are excited to see the project get started, which will improve road safety and create jobs.“There should be shovels in the ground by spring or summer next year.”last_img read more

Messi Is More Dominant Than Ever — And Barcelona Is More Dependent

2010-1133.7%36.1%20.3% 2015-1626.528.126.6 Messi’s share These personnel issues show up clearly in the stat sheet. Where once Barcelona was among the highest-pressing teams in the world, now the Blaugrana don’t force turnovers up the field at the same rate. Barcelona’s defensive numbers have still declined as its midfielders have lost range — and the team’s more conservative approach could only slow the decline, not prevent it entirely.This defensive weakness offers Liverpool its primary tactical opportunity. If Jurgen Klopp’s side can pull Barcelona into a transition game and open up midfield, there will be advantageous matchups to exploit. If Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane can find themselves running in space, Rakitic and Busquets are unlikely to slow them down.But such a transition game has a downside for Liverpool. And that’s Messi. If Liverpool seeks to exploit the weaknesses of Barcelona’s defense and create transition opportunities, that will give Messi room to operate. As he has shifted from a right-sided forward to a pure central playmaker, Messi has had to work in tighter spaces, often deeper on the pitch. 2014-1528.031.426.2 Data from La Liga and Champions League matchesSource: Opta Sports 2014-1555.527.3 2013-1427.131.819.5 2011-1230.036.121.5 Barca is even more dependent on MessiThe share of Barcelona’s production attributed to Lionel Messi, adjusted for playing time, 2010-2019 2012-1332.037.419.5 2016-1751.830.7 2018-19*47.242.0 2018-1934.741.333.6 2012-1349.632.6 In some ways, Liverpool’s task on Wednesday while facing Barcelona in the Champions League semifinal is simple. All the Reds likely have to do to reach a second consecutive European final is contain Lionel Messi, the greatest soccer player of all time.In past seasons, such a description might have been oversimplifying. Back when Xavi and Andres Iniesta roamed midfield for Barcelona, the pair’s game control and precision passing could dominate matches. More recently, when Neymar and a younger Luis Suarez joined Messi in the forward line, the interchanging of this three-headed monster was the core problem for opponents to solve. Today, the superstar supporting cast at Camp Nou is largely gone or aged out of its prime. But the astounding thing about Messi is that at age 31, he is still good enough to carry a team on his back very nearly to the top of the Soccer Power Index rankings, not to mention to an easy league title and a Copa del Rey final. Now he has the chance to bring the club a sixth Champions League title.From 2010-11 through 2013-14, when Barcelona was either managed by Pep Guardiola or still functioning mostly in his systems, Messi was a forward. He operated in the “false nine” role he made famous and ran up incredible goal-scoring and assist production, while ball progression responsibilities fell as much to him as to great midfielders like Xavi and Iniesta. The team changed in 2014-15, when Luis Enrique took over, Suarez arrived as an elite center forward and Xavi fell out of the rotation. Messi switched to a role on the right and became the team’s primary ball progressor, while Suarez and Neymar helped share the goal-scoring load.Today, increasingly, Messi just does it all. He is the lone true ball progression engine, and he’s creating an even higher percentage of his team’s goals and chances than he did at his peak, according to data from analytics firm Opta Sports. 2017-1830.732.428.1 2011-1255.425.8 2010-1156.0%25.0 *Adjusted for 38-match seasonData from La Liga matchesSource: Opta Sports 2013-1452.430.5 SeasonPressing RateExpected Goals Allowed 2016-1729.431.423.9 seasonExpected Goals + AssistsGoals + AssistsProgressive Passes + Runs 2015-1653.133.6 Messi receives the ball more often now in the back half of the pitch and the center. These are areas that normally Liverpool would expect to have at least two if not all three of its central midfielders covering. In a transition game, however, Messi might have more space to work and find passes either to Suarez or perhaps an onrushing fullback.1Jordi Alba has been Barcelona’s top attacking outlet since the departure of Neymar.The other option for Liverpool, if that seems too much of a risk, would be not to open up the throttle and play in transition but to sit deeper and look for less frequent counterattacking opportunities. This would deny Messi space to find passes. Of course, this would be nothing new. Barcelona has often faced opponents who sat deep and denied space. What has changed, however, is Barcelona’s approach. Where once Barca would patiently hold the ball forever until it unlocked an opponent, now Messi has started gunning. In the past two seasons, Messi has attempted 121 open-play shots from outside the box as well as 108 direct free kicks. In the two seasons prior, 2015-16 and 2016-17, he attempted just 83 open-play shots from outside the box and 87 direct free kicks. Messi has increased his production outside the penalty area from eight goals per season to 10.5 per season. Barca’s defense isn’t the sameBarcelona’s pressing rate and expected goals allowed by season 2017-1847.838.5 The main reason that Barcelona is increasingly a one-man team is that the other players are not as great anymore. Luis Suarez at 32 isn’t the dynamic center forward he used to be. Neymar, Xavi and Iniesta are gone. Sergio Busquets, 30, and Ivan Rakitic, 31, cannot cover ground in midfield like they used to. The result is a team that is less able to supplement the attack either with forward runs or with an aggressive high press to cause turnovers because the midfield needs to be more stable and defensive. Early in the season, Barcelona was playing more aggressive midfield tactics and was rewarded with a string of goals conceded. Manager Ernesto Valverde has since pulled back the press, which prevented a disaster but has left Messi carrying the team. This increase in production counts, but it is not spectacular. Messi has managed to be just as dangerous a ball progressor while letting it fly more frequently. But the risk Messi poses against a set defense, firing from long range, is probably one that an opponent can accept. While Messi is more dangerous shooting the ball than just about anyone else in soccer, his increased distance shooting has led to only a couple more goals over a long season. This isn’t a strategy to beat Messi — such a thing does not exist. But on balance, the statistical record suggests that even the greatest of all time has not turned gunning from 20 yards into a killer attacking plan.Barcelona is Lionel Messi at this point, and game-planning to stop Barcelona is now as simple as figuring out how to stop Messi. Which has, of course, never been simple. But with less expansive passers behind him and less explosive forwards ahead, he has never had fewer weapons among his teammates. Liverpool can either play a more risky strategy of exploiting Barcelona’s now-shaky defense or a more conservative strategy that looks to force Messi into shooting from range. Both strategies could easily be defeated by Messi finding space in transition or driving home a great shot from distance. But on balance, Liverpool is probably better off with the latter risk than letting Messi get free on the break.Check out our latest soccer predictions. read more

Pochettino reveals Spurs duo will be assessed
