For the fifth Christmas in a row, Uptown Whittier chiropractor Sheila Harrod is holding a toy drive for children of Bienvenidos Family Services.Harrod is waiving her co-payments – which range anywhere from $10 to $25 – for patients who bring in toys for the center, which helps abused children and impoverished families in East Los Angeles.“It’s always a big hit because people love to save money at this time of year and also feel good about giving,” she said Monday, standing in front of a mound of teddy bears, games and dolls.The toy drive, which began Dec. 3, has collected about 200 toys so far, including about 20 stuffed turtles made by women at a Rowland Heights church. The drive continues through Wednesday evening.Anyone wishing to donate can drop off toys at Harrod’s office, 6501 Bright Ave.“I’m asking people to please stop while they are out shopping and pick up a toy to drop off,” she said. “This is the season when it is most blessed to give.”Harrod started her annual drive after learning from a patient about the services provided by Bienvenidos to families and children and how the organization needs donations.“The families they help often don’t have anything,” she said.Barbara Kappos, the director of Bienvenidos, said donated toys are given to parents to give to their children.“These are people dealing with poverty, domestic violence, AIDS and child neglect,” she said. “It makes them feel good to give their kids a little happiness and joy during the Christmas season.” debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com(562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028last_img read more

(Image: Shangana)Brand South Africa ReporterThe Shangana Cultural Village in the South African province of Mpumalanga has secured second spot in the 2005 Conde Nast Traveler magazine’s Green List, which recognises the best in ecotourism around the world.Announcing the win in the magazine’s September 2005 issue, Conde Nast gave Shangana a score of 79%. This put it in second place after Bunaken National Marine Park in Indonesia, which scored 83%, and ahead of the 68% scored by the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve in Mexico.The winners were selected for their preservation of the environment, contribution to local culture and the quality of the guest experience.“Tours and feasts with the chief at this model village introduce visitors to the Shangaan way of life, complementing the natural attractions of the nearby Kruger National Park and Panorama Route,” Conde Nast reported. The village scored 68% for nature preservation, 82% for guest experience and 88% for local contribution.Owned by the Mapulana community, the venture has created over 200 jobs in an area which once had an unemployment rate of 80%.Shangana is a cluster of traditional villages midway between the Blyde River Canyon and the southern Kruger National Park, where residents invite guests to share in the way of life of the Shangaan people. The villages are set in the shade of ancient trees in a reserve of forest and grassland, and are open every day.An African market village forms the centre of Shangana, where local craftspeople make and trade their craft. From here, trained guides lead guests down to villages on daytime tours, midday tours with lunch, and a magnificent evening festival at the chief’s kraal.Marula MarketThe Marula Market has been described by many visitors as the most beautiful in Africa. A wide circle of huts looks down towards the Kruger Park, with trees all around. It is the central village at Shangana.The market is a gathering place for the region’s craftspeople, offering a variety of traditional handcrafted art. Many of the artists work at home in nearby villages and leave their work at the market to be sold, making Marula an important source of income for the people of the area.In the centre of the market are clay and stone pieces, including carvings, statues and pots, and an oven used for firing clay work. The surrounding huts house the work of different crafters.Daytime toursDuring the day, small groups are led from the Marula Market through the bush and past fields, where a trained guide shows how the Shangaan people collect food from their environment, and explains a little about traditional farming. The route leads up to a village, the home of a Shangaan headman, his wives and children.In the village, the guide explains different facets of the Shangaan way of life, including their history and customs, initiation ceremonies, the practice of polygamy, the outfits and weapons of masocho (warriors), the construction of homes, ornate beadwork clothing, and food preparation. Guests are encouraged to touch, feel and participate, while the guide explains the etiquette necessary to ensure the privacy of the family.Guests then visit the kraal of the sangoma, a registered member of the Traditional Healers Association, who explains different medicines – and may throw his bones on request.Over lunchtime, a full traditional meal is served in the village with the family. The wives of the chief wash the hands of the guests, and pots of food are brought from the fire and served. Guests are given portions of each item they choose on a carved wooden plate, and eat with an elegantly crafted wooden spoon.Evening festivalAs the sun sets over the mountains, guests are led through the bush towards the kraal of Chief Soshangana. As they approach, beating drums and warriors usher them through a passage of stone towers and flaming torches to the fire-lit circle of royal huts under the trees.During the evening festival choirs, actors and dancers tell the story of the Shangaan people. During the show, traditional beer and great wooden trays with local delicacies are passed around.Halfway through the show, the wives of the chief invite guests to divide into small groups to share a traditional feast in their houses with them.After this, guests return for the second half, which tells the more modern story of the Shangaans, and at the end guests are led out through a tunnel of singing choristers.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

first_imgJohannesburg’s Sacred Heart College has a long history of opening its doors to the most vulnerable children. Under the apartheid regime it educated children of all colours. Today, as home to Three2Six, it offers refugee children the chance of an education they may otherwise be denied.Like their pupils, teachers at Three2Six were once refugees themselves. Their common history makes it easier to build trust and understanding between pupil and teacher. (Image: Three2Six)Sulaiman PhilipThe administrative office of Three2Six, a foundation school for refugee children, is up a steep flight of stairs. With its door wide open, you can hear the students of Sacred Heart College exuberantly head to waiting cars or to extra-murals.Esther Munonoka, co-ordinator of the school, is disturbed by a tentative knock and timid voice. The former teacher, and refugee from Rwanda, excuses herself and talks calmly and peacefully to the young girl, whose unease melts away. Munonoka speaks whisper soft but confidently as she explains the challenges and successes of the programme, which is now entering its tenth year.Named for the hours the school runs, Three2Six offers refugee children the opportunity to get an education. It is designed as a bridge for refugee children before they enter the South African education system. Students at Three2Six are tutored in three foundation courses – English, maths and life skills – up to Grade 6.Munonoka explains: “We want to prepare our children to enter government schools. We give them a grounding that allows them to integrate into schools in their own communities.”Classrooms buzz with languages from across Africa – smatterings of Shona, French and Swahili – until classes begin. Pupils who have been at the school longer encourage newer children to speak English only. The teachers, all of them refugees, are able to help pupils overcome language and cultural barriers.Munonoka describes her charges as friendly, responsible and hardworking. To casual observers other adjectives come to mind: resilient, wary and aware. For them South Africa, and Sacred Heart, represent something we take for granted. Normal and safe, a place where they are free to learn, released from the fear of roaming bands of armed men. It’s a place that allows them to be children again.Some of the students may be undocumented, but Munonoka will not say. Or care. Unless the students and their parents want them to know. When they are in the classroom, the teachers teach. However, Three2Six does offer help, where it can, to families to get their immigration status legalised.For many, Sacred Heart is a safe zone, but Three2Six staff are well aware of the fears that drive life outside its gate. Whenever there is violence directed at immigrant communities, Munonoka and her staff are upsettingly conscious of it. The classes are small, so when even one child stays away, it is painfully obvious.Violence, sadly, is nothing new to many of the children who attend Three2Six. “Speaking generally, our children and their parents are escaping war, genocide, and persecution. They are looking for something we take for granted, an opportunity to learn. Some have walked from the DRC or crossed from Zimbabwe. We take the trust they put in us, to look after their children, very seriously.”At Three2Six refugee children get the chance to be kids again. (Image: Three2Six)For immigrant children, Three2Six is the lodestar. They attend religiously and parents are involved despite their circumstances. Administrators lament that their success has made them a choice for South African parents eager for their children to benefit from the educational grounding.“We have had some scary experiences because we won’t take in South African citizens. Our argument is the government is required to provide for the citizens of this country. We see ourselves as a partner of the government to help with a problem – we have an overwhelming number of refugees – that has overwhelmed them.”Hunger is also commonplace among the 275 children that Three2Six educates, with 300 on their waiting list. As Munonoka points out: “You can’t learn if you’re hungry.” The school provides students with a meal a day and has, over the course of its existence, served more than 350,000 meals.Sacred Heart College supplies school uniforms to the children. Often the uniform is among the few items of clothing the child possesses. (Image: Three2Six)A history of caringGiving Three2Six a home fits in with Sacred Heart’s long history of social engagement. In 1976, in defiance of the apartheid government, the school opened its doors to all races. It has been a beacon whose identity is wrapped up in its social justice activism.Colin Northmore, head of Sacred Heart College, explains that Three2Six would not exist if not for the work done by Bishop Paul Verryn at Johannesburg’s Central Methodist Church in 2003. “He called me and asked for help with the children who had taken refuge in the church after the first wave of xenophobia. We tried to help, we tried to do some teacher training, we tried to help with some of their other initiatives but they all collapsed.”While he takes as gospel the morality of doing something, Northmore believes that the work of the Central Methodist Church failed because there was no long-term plan in place. “At the time one of our brothers (Sacred Heart is one of 403 Marist Brothers schools spanning the globe) from Brazil was passing through and spoke about a programme they were running. They had a fee-paying school in the morning and a fee-free school in the afternoon and an adult education programme in the evening.“One of the defining features of that school was they did not use the same staff. All of these ideas coalesced and led to us asking: where is the social injustice in Johannesburg. That’s where Three2Six was born.”Reaching outThe project helps documented and undocumented migrants who would otherwise struggle to gain access to education. Northmore stresses that the programme is not a school but a bridging programme. He believes South Africa’s future is best served by allowing migrants to integrate into society.“We are not best served if migrants lock themselves in their own enclaves, or if South Africans build walls around themselves. We do not benefit from one another if we lock ourselves away out of fear or a lack of understanding.”Building understandingIf there was criticism, Northmore explains, opinions were quickly changed as children began playing and talking to each other. Understanding grew as Three2Six children were made to feel welcome on the bucolic grounds of Sacred Heart. “Our afternoon children are encouraged to use the sports fields as well, to be normal kids, to laugh and play. To have a normal childhood.”Watch: Precieuse: a refugee’s story. An animated biographical story created by the children of the Three2Six school at Sacred Heart CollegeNorthmore believes the well-heeled students of Sacred Heart have benefitted as much as the refugee children they have welcomed into their world. Kindness and respect, he believes, triggers understanding and opens up the possibility of transformation on both sides.“My parents are very proud of this project. The mothers of my day school noticed that some of our students weren’t eating their meals; they were packing them up and taking them home. So they started a food parcel project that now feeds a hundred families every month.”Now in its tenth year, Three2Six has spread to two other campuses and has been nominated for a JFK Humanitarian Award. The programme, one of a handful across the globe, is being recognised for its work in solving a growing problem – migration and how to accommodate refugees in an urban setting.“It’s a significant intervention into this problem in the world. How do you accommodate people moving to cities? And Three2Six is one small part of the answer to that question.“You need to understand something about Sacred Heart. We are one of the most diverse communities you will find. We are trying to fulfil the dream of what South Africa could become. My children already engage with difference.”What Munonoka, Northmore and the children of Sacred Heart and Three2Six have created is a community committed to embracing and celebrating all that makes us different.last_img read more

first_img10 November 2013 Orlando Pirates gave it their all against defending champions Al Ahly, but a 0-2 loss in Cairo on Sunday evening left them 1-3 losers on aggregate in the final of the Confederation of African Football (Caf) Champions League and the Egyptians African champions for a record eighth time. The South Africans created some gilt-edged goal scoring chances, but some indifferent finishing and the Eagles greater experience of the big occasion made the difference in the contest. The Buccaneers were by no means overawed or outplayed and on another day might have got the result they were seeking, but getting the ball into the opposition’s net is the name of the game and Pirates failed to do that. They nonetheless enjoyed a fantastic run to the final and overcome some stiff hurdles to memorably defeat TP Mazembe and Esperance. Their results also included a 3-0 win over Al Ahly in Cairo.Bright start With the Egyptian giants having scored an away goal in a 1-1 draw in Soweto in the first leg, Pirates knew they needed to score at least a goal away from home to be in with a shot at the title and this led to a bright start from the men in black and white. Play was a little scrappy in the beginning, however, with both teams giving up possession a little too easily as they attempted to catch out the other with long balls. Although it was an away game for the Sea Robbers, they weren’t sitting back and were taking the game to the Egyptians. The South African side’s forwards were doing a good job of putting pressure on the Al Ahly defenders when the home side had possession. In the 8th minute, Pirates had the first decent opportunity of the match when they were awarded a free kick about 10 metres outside the box after Sifiso Myeni was brought down. Daine Klate, though, fired in a left-footed shot at about waist- height, making it was easy for goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy to deal with.Flying header After a quarter-of-an-hour, Mohamed Naguib got onto the end of a teasing cross from the left. He met the ball with a flying header, but his effort flew to the left of Senzo Meyiwa’s goal. It was, nonetheless, Al Ahly’s best chance in the early going. Ahmed Fathi then made a fine run from the back, beating a number of attempted tackles before finding Abdellah Said at the far post. The pass had just a little too much on it, however, and Said couldn’t bring it around to challenge Meyiwa. Pirates came close to finding a breakthrough in the 20th minute, but Ekramy flew off his line to block Tlou Segolela’s low shot from close range after the winger had cut in from the right to pick up a defence-splitting pass.Palmed behind Meyiwa was tested shortly afterwards by Ahmed Abdelzaher, who fired from long distance, forcing the Pirates’ net-minder to palm the ball high and behind for a corner. Myeni, whose direct running made the defenders look uncomfortable, won another free kick outside of the Buccaneers’ box after 28 minutes. Oupa Manyisa tried his luck from distance, but was off target and Ekramy went untested. Thabo Matlaba blasted a powerful shot at the goalkeeper from a long way out after a sharp spin and turn, but Ekramy was able to get his body behind the ball and comfortably catch it.Should have scored Segolela should have scored and given Pirates the lead when Klate picked him out with a cross to the far post from the left, but he mistimed his jump, with an open goal in front of him, and his header from only a few metres out failed to find the mark. Two minutes from the break, Meyiwa had to rush off his line to close down Abdelzaher, who appeared to have an open shot on goal. As the break neared, Al Ahly were flopping about like fish around the Pirates’ box as they attempted to win a free kick from the referee, but time after time he turned their protests down. Half-time arrived and a small melee followed the whistle before the teams left the field with the score still goalless, but the game far from short of action. Early in the second half, a back pass by Al Ahly forced Ekramy to sprint outside his box and clear to prevent Lennox Bacela snapping up the poorly judged ball.Goal In the 54th minute Al Ahly hit the front after Abdellah Said shot from outside the Pirates’ box. The ball deflected off of a defender and fell to Mohamed Aboutrika, who poked it past Meyiwa. The crowd went wild and fireworks filed the Cairo night. It was a somewhat fortuitous strike, but the chance had fallen to the Egyptians’ talisman and he had made it count. On the hour mark, Klate forced an untidy save out of Ekramy with a swerving, long range effort that bounced just in front of the goalkeeper. Bacela then missed an excellent opportunity to level matters. After being played in down the middle of the box, he beat the goalkeeper to his right, but his snap shot then flew across the face of goal. The crowd breathed a collective sigh of relief. Another good chance had fallen to the Sea Robbers and been spurned. Abdelzaher fired off a shot after Aboutrika headed on from a goal kick, but his effort flew wide to the left of Meyiwa’s goal. Still, it warned the Buccaneers that they needed to be wary at the back while they went in search of an equaliser.Doubled their advantage In the 78th minute Al Ahly doubled their advantage. The goal was scored by Abdelzaher, who side-footed it home after a mishit shot from the right by Ahmed Fathi sliced across the Pirates’ defenders to Abdelzaher on the left of the box. Taking his chance, he hit it first time and Meyiwa was beaten for a second time on the night. Refusing to lie down, the Sea Robbers took the game to the Egyptian giants, but the home team’s defence continued to hold firm. With only eight minutes remaining, Sherif Abdel-Fadil, who had been shown a yellow card earlier in the contest, was shown a red card for a second foul after a reckless challenge which took out Klate in the air. Al Ahly were down to 10 men. It did not cost them despite four minutes of additional time being played. They effectively ran down the clock, even creating a few more goal scoring chances, and came away three-one winners on aggregate.last_img read more

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Alternatives to Cable TV Which brings us to the all important content. Television has always been about consuming content and 2010 was another step forward for services that provide online TV content. Hulu has been the most high profile of these services, due to its ties to the U.S. TV networks. In November, Hulu lowered the price for its premium service “Hulu Plus,” in an effort to attract more users. Previously, Hulu Plus was $9.99 per month, but in November it dropped to $7.99 per month.Hulu Plus is also available on set-top boxes such as Roku.Overall, 2010 has been a year of much progress in online TV. Of course, in the U.S. the main television networks still rely mostly on ‘offline’ TV for their revenues. And consumers by and large still watch popular shows like Mad Men through cables piped to their television sets. But if 2010 is any indication, the Internet has well and truly arrived as the future of TV. Let us know your thoughts on Internet TV in 2010 – do you watch much television online? ReadWriteWeb’s 2010 In Review:Top 10 Semantic Web Products of 2010Top 10 RSS and Syndication Technologies of 2010Best BigCo of 2010: FacebookTop Trends of 2010: App StoresMost Promising Company For 2011: SimpleGeoTop Trends of 2010: Internet TVTop 10 Startups of 2010Top Trends of 2010: PrivacyThe new Apple TV has a lower price (now $99, compared to $229 for the first generation product), streamlined form (80% smaller), streaming functionality, no more local storage, Netflix and YouTube access, and 99c TV show rentals. It remains to be seen if the new version of Apple TV brings as much success to Apple as its other consumer devices.It’s a competitive field in the set-top boxes market, so Apple will have its work cut out in 2011. Boxee and Roku are two startups in this field worth keeping an eye on.Google TV In May, Google announced a new Internet TV product called Google TV. The most interesting aspect of the announcement was the developer ecosystem that Google introduced to television. Google TV will not just allow you to view television programs and online video content, it’ll also give you access to Internet TV applications built using Google’s mobile operating system Android.Google is positioning itself as an Internet TV platform, rather than offering a hardware component like Apple TV and Microsoft Mediaroom. On the hardware side, Google partnered with electronics giant Sony. This quote from the Google Blog in May is key to understanding what Google is aiming for: “your TV becomes more than a TV — it can be a photo slideshow viewer, a gaming console, a music player and much more.” Looking back on the year in Web technology, we can see that several product categories have evolved significantly over 2010. We’ve already written about App Stores and eReaders. Another market that progressed in 2010 was Internet TV. Among the developments: Apple announced a major overhaul of Apple TV, Google launched its Android-powered Google TV platform and partnered with Sony, Boxee and Roku continued to improve their set-top box products, startups like Clicker innovated new types of web services for Internet TV, and content platforms like Hulu captured more viewers.In this post we review the Internet TV market over 2010 and highlight the big stories of the year.Apple TV & its Competition When it comes to Internet-connected consumer electronics, Apple dominates several key markets already: music (iPod), smartphone (iPhone) and tablet (iPad). However its Internet TV product, Apple TV, has been much less successful… so far. In an attempt to change that, in September Apple announced a re-designed Apple TV. Internet TV Web Apps: ClickerGoogle TV and other similar platforms will foster an ecosystem of Internet TV apps, similar to what’s occurred with smart phones over the past few years (albeit on a lesser scale). An app that may be a sign of what’s to come is Clicker. Billed as a “TV Guide for the Internet” when it launched in November 2009, Clicker is essentially a browser-based portal for your TV. It enables you to search for online TV programs, subscribe to them, watch them inside the site, and more.In September, ReadWriteWeb spoke to Clicker co-founder and CEO Jim Lanzone. He told us that Clicker’s goal is to build “the ultimate programming guide for the next generation of TV, which is about navigation and discovery.” He added that “it’s not just finding TV shows, it’s also how you decide what to watch.” Tags:#2010 in Review#Features#Video Services#web#Year in Review Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts richard macmanuslast_img read more

first_imgToday, October 11, 2019, marks three years since I published my first book, The Only Sales Guide You’ll Ever Need. My primary outcome when writing this book was to ensure that it would stand the test of time (which is why I don’t follow fads like social selling and look instead for trend-lines that provide a sense of direction and suggest an evolutionary change).I had been writing this blog for five years when a publisher asked me for a book. At the time, I didn’t feel I needed to write a book. I was writing a post every day, and at five hundred words a day, I was already writing the equivalent of three books a year, a book being roughly sixty-thousand words. Because readers kept sending me notes asking me to write a book, I drafted a book with the working title 21 Elements: The Periodic Table of Sales Success. I hired an editor to help me with development and ended up with only seventeen of my original twenty-one elements.The publisher read the book and hated it. He asked me why I would make the first chapter Self-Discipline, in his words, “when everyone hates self-discipline.” He continued sharing his thoughts, aiming for the third chapter, titled: Caring. Has said, “What does caring have to do with selling?” At this point, I realized the call wasn’t going as well as I hoped it would.Rather than try to argue about each chapter, I asked him a question, even though I knew the answer. I asked, “Have you ever sold or led a sales force?” He confessed he had not. I followed up by telling him, “I have never published a book, so I will count on you to have a deep understanding of that, and you’ll have to trust that I understand my subject.” He countered by asking me if he could compile several blog posts into a book, and idea that had no interest to me whatsoever.Going It AloneAt that moment, I decided to publish the book myself. I hired an editor and spent the next six months writing and editing the text. My editor helped me clean up the book, polishing sentences and paragraphs. At one point, he told me to delete chapter seventeen, which he said added nothing. I rewrote it from scratch.Six weeks from the publication date, I received a direct message on Twitter from an acquisition editor from my publisher asking me why I hadn’t written a book. I DM’d back that I had, and he suggested he couldn’t find it. I told him I was six weeks away from publication. We had a phone call, and he shared with me that he hated my title, and we agreed I would send him the book. A few days later, I signed with my publisher, who immediately recognized the book as a competency model. We published the book, and it became an Amazon.com and the USA Today national bestseller.Why I Love This BookI get notes and emails from people who read my books and this blog. The notes about my second book, The Lost Art of Closing, always include something about how much more money the person is making because they learned to control the process and trade value. The emails about book three, Eat Their Lunch, always suggest that the writer is booking more meetings and winning more and bigger deals. But TOSG brings different feedback.Most of the notes about this book say that not only did it improve their sales, but it also made them a better parent, spouse, and person. The first half of the book is designed to do just that; improve your intangibles, like Self-Discipline, Optimism, Caring, Competitiveness, Resourcefulness, Persistence, Initiative, Communication, and Accountability.Who you are matters much more than what you do or what you sell. Success in sales is individual, not situational.There is not a single novel idea in The Was Only Sales Guide. The only novelty in the book is the competency model that I constructed out of character traits and skills that are all well-recognized and documented. Because the ideas are so well documented, I included a reading list at the end of every chapter for people who need to go deeper in any area.Learn Anthony’s core strategies & tactics for sales success at any level with The Only Sales Guide You’ll Ever NeedTOSG is a sales book. So all the Mindset chapters in the first half of the book are all written for a salesperson. The second half of the book is made up of the skills necessary to succeed in sales, and I added a few that have merged as being critical to success, even though they are not widely taught or trained. In that half, you find Closing, Prospecting, Storytelling, Diagnosing, Negotiating, Business Acumen, Change Management, and Leadership. The last three of these skills are differentiators for a salesperson—especially when coupled with the Mindset chapters.On my first book’s third birthday, I can’t imagine writing about anything else. When you pick it up, email me at Anthony iannarino.com so that I can send you the workbook. Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Nowlast_img read more
