first_img15 March 2016During the 2016 World Communication Forum (WCF) in Davos, Switzerland, BRICS – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – agreed to establish a BRICS Communicators Forum.The focus of the BRICS group would be on defining the communication strategy of the world’s five fastest growing economies, said acting director-general of the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS), Donald Liphoko.Liphoko was part of the South African delegation at the WCF, which ran from 7 to 10 March. The 2016 conference was the seventh annual forum.“The WCF was a major success in that it provided South Africa with a platform to engage with communicators from other parts of the world, but the major highlight is that we were able to agree as BRICS countries to establish a BRICS Communicators Forum on the sidelines of the Davos WCF that is going to focus on defining the BRICS communication strategy as well as positioning the geo-political group,” he said.Listen to what Communications Minister Faith Muthambi had to say:South Africa’s ubuntuThe participation of countries such as South Africa in WCF was crucial, said Dr Jon-Hans Coetzer, the executive dean for undergraduate programmes at the Glion Institute of Higher Education in Switzerland.“We all know the history of South Africa and now you just have to look at what South Africa has produced, what the country has brought to humanity in terms of great leadership, what it has brought to the international community in terms of big changes such as the promotion of equality for all, social justice and education in the world today.”“What I like more about South Africa is this concept of Ubuntu, which is so much part of the DNA of all South Africans. This concept is also relevant in global communication because we all need each other – business, the media, communication, education and public relations.”Coetzer said he taught ubuntu as a management concept, emphasizing to his class that without their customers and community they were nothing.About WCFThe annual meeting in Davos brings together industry leaders in public relations, marketing, media, political and business communications and corporate finances, as well as a large number of media representatives and international partner associations and organisations.According to the official website, the goal is to “unite trend-makers and influencers from the global communications elite and provide a platform for discussion focused on the future development of communications and their role in business, society and politics; to provoke in-depth analysis of the form and content of interaction between business, media, and society, on the one hand, and the state, on the other.”Source: South African Government News Agencylast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest  Leave a CommentThe opioid crisis is devastating countless communities across the state, as Ohioans are now more than two and a half times as likely to die from a drug overdose than a car accident. In fact, Ohio ranks third in the nation for opioid overdose deaths with more than 5,000 Ohioans dying from overdose in 2017 alone.Healthy, drug-free residents are important to a thriving community and economy, which is why Ohio Farm Bureau has joined the Opioid Education Alliance. The alliance, which is composed of more than 40 business, civic and government organizations, has a mission to spread opioid misuse prevention messages through its Denial, OH campaign. The Denial, OH campaign features public service announcements that are set in the fictional town of Denial, Ohio, where residents are “in denial” that their children could become addicted to opioids.Check out the PSAs, and educate yourself, your family and friends on proper prescription opioid use and disposal.Welcome to Denial, OhioPeople in Denial, Ohio  Leave a Commentlast_img read more

NASA/SpaceX SpaceX has taken another small step toward sending astronauts into space after launching the Crew Dragon capsule early Saturday morning and successfully docking with the International Space Station. spacex-demo1 SpaceX Affixed to the top of a Falcon 9 booster, the rounded cone capsule of the Crew Dragon blasted off in a blaze of fire and smoke from Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 2:49 a.m. ET Saturday. The launch was the first step in the Demo-1 mission, designed to test the capabilities of the capsule over the next week, but it was only the beginning. After launch the capsule coasted to the ISS, making a number of maneuvers to line up with a specialized docking adapter aboard the station. Though live footage of the event appeared low-key, both the Crew Dragon and the ISS were traveling at over 17,500 miles per hour during the monumental docking attempt.  Crew Dragon achieved soft capture with the ISS at 5:51 a.m. ET, but the high-speed space grab wasn’t over. Shortly after, 12 hooks reached out from Crew Dragon to firmly attach it to the ISS, enabling a “hard capture” of the capsule at 6 a.m. ET and marking the first successful docking of a Commercial Crew capsule at the ISS. SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft docks with the International… Now playing: Watch this: No humans are on board, but the capsule isn’t empty.

In addition, the capsule carried around 400 pounds of crew supplies and equipment to the ISS to simulate future missions.  A view from onboard the Crew Dragon as it approached the ISS. SpaceX/NASA On Saturday morning, the historic launch was celebrated with cheers and applause at Kennedy Space Center, after multiple delays pushed the maiden flight back from an expected launch in 2018. The site of the landmark launch was Pad 39A, which has previously seen NASA’s Saturn rockets carry astronauts to the moon aboard Apollo spacecraft and the famous launches of NASA’s space shuttles. SpaceX CEO Elon Musk expressed his appreciation for both the SpaceX team and NASA at a post-launch press conference but noted the mental toll the experience had on him. “To be frank, I’m a little emotionally exhausted,” he sighed. “That was super stressful, but it worked… So far.”    Though the launch was a success, SpaceX still has a few more obstacles to overcome before the demonstration mission is complete. The capsule will remain docked at the ISS until March 8, then begin what is arguably the most important part of its demonstration: successfully returning to Earth. The capsule is fitted with enhanced parachutes and is set to splash down in the Atlantic Ocean. The Falcon 9 blasts off, carrying Crew Dragon for the first time. SpaceX Speaking of the Atlantic, the reusable Falcon 9 booster that launched Crew Dragon landed on the droneship Of Course I Still Love You drifting in the ocean, approximately 10 minutes after liftoff. As part of its Commercial Crew program, NASA handed contracts to both SpaceX and Boeing in 2014 to develop rockets that could send astronauts back to space. NASA hasn’t launched humans to space since 2011, when the Space Shuttle program ended. In the meantime, the agency has paid for spots on the Russian-built Soyuz spacecraft at a cost of over $80 million per seat. That makes Saturday’s success particularly important, helping chart a course for NASA to bring launches back to American soil and keep costs down.  “We want to make sure we keep our partnership with Russia, which has been very strong for a long period of time,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said before the flight. “But we also want to make sure we have our own capability to get back and forth to the International Space Station.” The Crew Dragon separates from the Falcon 9 in Earth’s shadow. SpaceX The Crew Dragon capsule is an enhanced version of SpaceX’s Dragon capsule, which has ferried cargo from Earth to the ISS on 16 previous occasions. This iteration can carry seven human passengers, which it’ll eventually shuttle to the ISS in low Earth orbit. Provided this demo mission proceeds as planned, the Crew Dragon will have to demonstrate its safety in one more “in-flight abort test,” scheduled for later this year. If it passes that test, SpaceX and NASA will finally be ready to make another giant leap, sending astronauts to the ISS from the US for the first time since 2011. last_img read more
