3 November 2005Canada is willing to share its Geographic Information System (GIS) expertise with South Africa.Canadian high commissioner Sandelle Scrimshaw told delegates from both countries at a GIS seminar in Pretoria on Wednesday that her country had amassed skills in research, development and technology and was willing to share with the rest of the continent.“We are keen to share these with South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world,” she said, adding that Canada viewed South Africa as a strategic partner for science and technology on the continent.“I know that our companies are also willing to collaborate with their African counterparts,” she said.Strategic partnershipDelegates met at the Innovation Hub in Pretoria to explore potential areas of co-operation in science and technology between the two countries.Earth observation and geosciences constitute strategic priorities for South Africa and play a crucial role in informing policy and decision making.GIS is a system that manages, analyses, and disseminates geographic knowledge.Throughout AfricaCanadian Director for Natural Resources Martin Aube said they had already embarked on earth science activities in other African countries such as Burkina Faso, Gabon, Ghana, Mali, Morocco, Mozambique and Senegal.He said his country was also supporting African countries to address environmental challenges such as natural resource management and environmental impact assessment.General Director for the Canadian Space Agency Paul Engel said they used space to monitor areas at risk for malaria and other diseases.Space policySpace Affairs Advisor for the Department of Trade and Industry Mothibi Ramusi said South Africa was currently developing a space policy.He said there is a satellite centre at the Hartebeespoort that could help the country in terms of disaster management.Ramusi said Africa faced challenges of poverty and climate change and that the information and analysis GIS provided could help the continent to deal with these issues.He said that access to satellite data at an affordable rate was a problem. “Other challenges [are getting] operating licence and hardware costs as well as availability of basic information such as statistics,” he said.Monitoring toolHowever, Ramusi acknowledged that earth observation had societal benefits in terms of monitoring service delivery, especially in South Africa.“In South Africa, government is embarking on service delivery programmes so earth observation can be used as a monitoring tool in this regard,” he said.Ramusi recommended that the co-operation between South Africa and Canada focus on exchange programmes of domain experts and well as exposure to technological development relating to GIS.Source: BuaNews

Miguel Romero Polo: Bamboo technology like no other Wintry storm delivers US travel woes before Thanksgiving Wade couldn’t wait to open the gift the Spurs gave him, which included signed jerseys from Duncan, Parker and Ginobili.“Legends,” Wade said. “Hall of Famer jerseys in those boxes with the Big Three here in San Antonio. Guys I have so much respect for with Duncan, Ginobili and Parker. I appreciate those jerseys.”Wade also exchanged jerseys with DeRozan at halfcourt following the game. The crowd serenaded him with “D-Wade” chants as he did a postgame interview and as he walked into the locker room.“It’s an honor,” DeRozan said of Wade’s gift. “It was an honor being able to play against him for 10 years of my career, especially me being in the East all those years.”TIP-INSHeat: Miami’s previous win at San Antonio was March 31, 2013, when Chris Bosh scored 23 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer, to stun the Spurs 88-86 as Wade and LeBron James sat out for rest. … Miami is 17-16 on the road after finishing 18-23 last season. … Justise Winslow missed the game with a bruised right thigh.Spurs: Mills played in his 521st game with the Spurs to move past Danny Green into the top 10 in franchise history for games played. Bruce Bowen is ninth with 630 games played for San Antonio. … Marco Belinelli became the 11th player in NBA history with 400 3-pointers off the bench.UP NEXTHeat: At the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.Spurs: At the Houston Rockets on Friday night. Bloomberg: US would benefit from more, not fewer, immigrants Wade, who is retiring after 16 seasons, has been honored in his final game at visiting arenas. This one was special, though, given his history against the Spurs, coach Gregg Popovich and their vaunted Big Three of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili.Wade was key to the battles between Miami and San Antonio in the 2013 and 2014 NBA Finals. The Heat rallied from a six-point deficit in the final 20.3 seconds to force overtime and win Game 6 on their way to capturing the 2013 championship. San Antonio won the title the following season against Miami to avenge that defeat.The Spurs honored Wade before the game with a 1½-minute video, including their tussles in the NBA Finals. After the video played, Popovich presented Wade with a gift box that included signed jerseys from Duncan, Parker and Ginobili.“That’s dope,” Wade said. “I didn’t know it was going to be before the game. I like the music swag they had on it and the videos they put up. It was really cool. I’m so thankful and I’m so appreciative. I don’t expect those things to happen to me at all. I just came out and did my job every night and I’m thankful for the relationships that I have. I have a great one with Coach (Popovich) and I just appreciate what they did.”San Antonio also gifted Miami the first half, falling behind by as many as 17 points.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Miami won 110-105. (AP Photo/Darren Abate)SAN ANTONIO — Dwyane Wade was upset, ecstatic, tenacious and gracious in his final battle with the San Antonio Spurs.It was the perfect ending to Wade’s fiery showdowns with San Antonio, albeit an unusual one with the fans serenading him with cheers as he walked off the AT&T Center court after one final win over the Spurs.ADVERTISEMENT The Spurs rallied from a 12-point deficit entering the fourth quarter to pull to 108-105 on Rudy Gay’s floater with 1:07 remaining, but a turnover by DeMar DeRozan and a pair of free throws by Kelly Olynk sealed the victory.“We had a shot in the fourth quarter, but for three quarters they whipped us physically and discipline-wise,” Popovich said. “They deserve the win for that reason.”The Spurs had six players in double figures, but only two starters. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 17 points and DeRozan added 16. Patty Mills and Marco Belinelli added 17 apiece.San Antonio held opponents to 101.3 points per game during its winning streak but Miami reached 100 with 9 minutes remaining.DeRozan was given a technical foul after screaming at an official for not calling a foul when he was stripped by James Johnson on the baseline with the Spurs trailing 103-98 with 4:12 to play.Wade picked up a technical 2 minutes later after berating an official for a non-call on his missed fadeaway over Mills. Aldridge’s free throw pared Miami’s lead to 106-103.Wade responded by banking in an off-balance, fadeaway, left-handed runner.“A shot I’ve never seen him practice or ever attempt,” Miami coach Erik Spoelstra said, still in disbelief, “I guess sometimes that’s what great players can do, just manufacture something out of absolutely nothing. He was bottled up, Aldridge just had him jammed and that just gave us the breathing room at the end.”Wade finished with 11 points, including a running 3-pointer from halfcourt that brought the crowd to its feet in celebration of one of the Spurs’ fiercest competitors.HALL OF FAME SWAG Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:04Trump attends World Series baseball game in Washington DC02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss View comments Google Philippines names new country director Trump tells impeachment jokes at annual turkey pardon event Goran Dragic had 22 points and the Miami Heat snapped the Spurs’ nine-game winning streak with a 110-105 victory Wednesday night, sending Wade home a winner in what was likely his final game in San Antonio.“We’re playing as good as a group together as we’ve played since I got back here,” Wade said. “It’s fun playing basketball with these guys this way.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsDion Waiters added 18 points and Josh Richardson had 15 for Miami, which won its third straight game to remain eighth in the Eastern Conference.San Antonio saw its 11-game home winning streak come to an end but remained fifth in the West.

New Delhi: Moments after Ravi Shastri was re-appointed as the head coach of the Indian team till 2021, Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) chief Kapil Dev had said ‘as all of you were expecting’ Shastri is the number one candidate for the job. But it has now come to the fore that Kiwi Mike Hesson had almost toppled Shastri.Speaking to IANS, a senior Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) functionary said that it was a close call between Shastri and Hesson and New Zealand’s track record under the Kiwi from 2012 till 2018 had almost sealed the deal for the former Kings XI Punjab coach. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh”It was not a walk in the park for Shastri as some of you seem to believe. Hesson was really close to getting the go-ahead. It is there for all to see how the New Zealand team improved by leaps and bounds under him across all formats. “From being the perennial surprise package in big-ticket events, they had become a champion side under him and that is something that really impressed the CAC. “Under his coaching, the Kiwis reached their first-ever World Cup final in 2015. While he did resign in 2018, the Kiwis playing their second final on the trot in 2019 also had a lot to do with what Hesson brought to the table. His strategizing with the senior members in the team can’t be discounted,” the functionary explained. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterAsked what then turned the table back in Shastri’s favour, considering that the CAC made it clear that skipper Virat Kohli wasn’t consulted before taking the call, the functionary said it was Shastri’s experience as a player on the international stage.”The CAC felt that Shastri’s proven record as a player was one area that needed to be give due recognition as one’s own stature might become an area of concern when handling a team which has big names. “Hesson hadn’t played enough cricket himself and as we know started coaching in his early twenties. Shastri on the other hand played 80 Test matches and 150 ODIs. That is something that went against the Kiwi,” the functionary said.However the functionary refused to divulge if the experience of having M.S.K. Prasad as the chief selector and his inability to stand tall and take decisions was used as point of reference by the CAC when making the call. “That only then can tell you,” the functionary said.Interestingly, the national selectors led by Prasad are expected to announce the names of the support staff on Thursday. The CAC had expressed its desire to be a part of this as well, but the BCCI constitution doesn’t allow it.While Bharat Arun is expected to retain his position as bowling coach, Sanjay Bangar’s position is under the scanner as batting coach. Vikram Rathour is considered favourite to take the position, but he will face stiff competition from Praveen Amre. In the fielding department, R. Sridhar is almost certain to be retained unless the selectors look to rope in someone like Jonty Rhodes.
The White House is looking for a replacement for John Gibson II, the Pentagon’s first-ever chief management officer (CMO), for a “lack of performance,” according to defense officials. Gibson, whose primary duty is reforming DOD’s business operations including real property management, remains in his job for now but his responsibilities have been scaled back, reports the Wall Street Journal. He was informed by Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan more than a month ago that leaders weren’t satisfied with the results of his work. Gibson’s expected departure suggests the department’s initiative to find savings within its massive bureaucracy and apply them to modernization needs — one of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis’ top priorities — is “foundering,” one official told the paper. “All of Mattis’ modernization ambitions lie in the money that Shanahan and Gibson were going to harvest out of the institution in savings and efficiencies,” the official said. “Without it, Mattis is truly in trouble.”DOD photo by Tech Sgt.

However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Apparently by buying more airplanes.On Friday, Amazon announced that it was expanding its fleet to 50 aircraft (up from 40). Amazon says this is to support the increasing number of Prime subscribers who expect free two-day delivery. (On top of that, Amazon customers bought 2 billion items with one-day delivery this year.)By adding 10 more aircraft, Amazon is expanding its fleet by 25 percent — a sizable increase. But this fleet is still dwarfed by other shipping companies. UPS owns 247 aircraft (and leases more during November and December), while FedEx owns over 650 (ranking it among the world’s largest airlines).If Amazon is to continue offering free-two day shipping to its millions of Prime subscribers, it better have the arsenal to back it up.
