Recycling tyres, creating jobs

first_img10 January 2012 A waste tyre management plan to be rolled out later this year will create a “sustainable recycling industry” to deal with a major waste problem, the recycling initiative said on Monday.The Recycling and Economic Development Initiative of South Africa (Redisa) said the Integrated Industry Waste Tyre Management Plan, which had been approved by Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa, would create jobs and foster small and medium-sized businesses throughout the country.Job creation, business development “The new law is intended not only to support the creation of a sustainable recycling industry to deal with a major and problematic waste product, but also to create jobs and foster small and medium sized businesses in communities throughout the country,” the group said.All involved in the industry have to register by 31 January 2012.Redisa said the income generated from a rand-per-kilo levy charged to tyre manufacturers and importers would be used to help stimulate start-up businesses around the collection, transportation, storage and recycling of the waste.It would also be used for research and development, training, monitoring and overall community upliftment.10-million scrap tyres a year The South African tyre industry produces more than 10-million scrap tyres a year.According to Redisa it is estimated that between 60- and 100-million scrap tyres are stockpiled in South Africa.“Waste tyres pose an environmental problem, both as pollutants and as breeding grounds for mosquitoes and vermin,” the group said.“However, there is as yet no effective technology for disposing of tyres in an environmentally friendly yet economically viable way.“The need for research and development, collection and recycling is therefore imperative. The opportunity for generating jobs and new industry businesses aligned to the recycling of waste tyres is of paramount importance.”The group said the R2.30 per kilometre levy charged to the manufacturer would effectively subsidise the collection and recycling processes.By giving the tyres a value for recycling, entrepreneurs would be able to build a business out of collecting tyres from their community and delivering them to a collection point.Sapalast_img read more

County fairs provide more than ribbons, tractors pulls and food

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Many people love county fairs. Whether attendees enjoy riding rides, eating fair food, competing in or watching livestock shows or other performances, there is something for almost everyone to enjoy at county fairs.It is no secret that I enjoy showing our miniature horses at the Morrow County Fair. Although I always try my best and often have good results, my favorite part of the fair is the sense of community. A walk through the barns or a stop at the yearly square dance are always sources of finding good friends with which to enjoy a chat and a laugh. Fun and friendships accompany hard work for me at our county fair. My dad (Ed – left) and my uncle (Bill – right) helped me show my minis in the halter classes at the fair.In addition to my family, I can always count on my friends and fellow exhibitors for a helping hand. My family has learned the hard way that if they come anywhere near the miniature horse barn on show days, they are going to be drafted for a job and they seem to look forward to it and enjoy it.As the miniature herd has expanded, not only have my husband, parents and aunt and uncle become key helpers in readying my horses for the shows, but others have been drafted as well.Lisa making sure Sam looks great when he and I enter the ring.A long-time friend of mine, Lisa, mentioned early in the week that her daughter was a member of the junior fair board. Because of this position, her daughter had to be dropped off and picked up from the fair early so Lisa said she was going to be on the fairgrounds for long periods of time while her daughter worked at the fair.I sent Lisa a text inviting her to come to my show the following day. What she didn’t know is that along with my dad and uncle she was going to become an important part of showing the geldings in the halter classes that day.It was a fun day with family and friends that won’t soon be forgotten.On hitch day of the fair (when the horses show pulling carts and wagons), I usually need some extra help to get all my minis in their classes in a timely manner. I can always count on my fellow exhibitors to lend a hand. On both practice days and show day, the Timmons and Cox families, in addition to my family, made sure I had safe experiences while driving my horses.Everyone pitched it to help when the judge noticed my wagon had a loose wheel.This year, even the judge played a role in making sure my show experience was safe. He noticed a loose wheel on my wagon as I prepared to enter the ring.As my husband held the horses and I sat on the wagon, the judge inspected each wheel for safety while our friend, Josh, tightened the wagon wheel.From practice days to show days to days just roaming around the fairgrounds, I can always count on my family and friends to lend a helping hand or be there for fun and laughs at the county fair.County fairs are much more than ribbons, tractor pulls and food, they are a place where memories and friendships are built that can last a lifetime.last_img read more

What Are The Best Defensive Performances of The Gundy Era?

first_imgI started wondering after the Oklahoma State-TCU game on Saturday what the best performances of the Mike Gundy era are. This is impossible to determine, of course, because it is all subjective, and not one stands out above all the others.There was the 2011 OU game. The 2013 Baylor game. The 2013 Mississippi State game. But these are all just anecdotes. All just games I have at the forefront of my mind. What about numbers, though? You guys know I love points per drive, but there is not a great way to look at individual games so we will have to measure by points scored and average yards gained.By those standards, and using the TCU game as a barometer, here are all the games in the Gundy era in which OSU has given up 10 or fewer points and allowed five or fewer yards per play. I also threw in creating two or more TOs on defense.screen-shot-2016-11-22-at-1-48-06-pmThere is some interesting stuff in here. You can throw out all the non-Power 5 games which leaves you with exactly 10 games in the Gundy era that fit the criteria. Three of those were against Kansas and Iowa State which leaves us with:Georgia (2009)Arizona (2010)Texas Tech (2011)Oklahoma (2011)Mississippi State (2013)TCU (2013)TCU (2016)That Georgia game was big time. The Arizona game was the Alamo Bowl. The Tech game resulted in the famous guns up picture. The OU game was the Big 12 title. The Mississippi State game opened the 2013 season. The TCU 2013 game was the famous Josh Stewart punt return photo game. And then this year.#TBT Josh Stewart took a punt return 95 yards to the house vs TCU last season in a 24-10 Cowboy victory! pic.twitter.com/EJY2YgrpPS— Kyle Boone (@PFBoone) October 16, 2014That’s quite a collection.You probably have to say the OU 2011 game tops the list just because of what was at stake and the fact that OSU created five turnovers that night. Also, this TCU offense certainly wasn’t the best of the bunch, but it was still a crazy good outing by Glenn Spencer’s boys. His boss agreed.“First I’m going to say that was the best defensive effort, game plan, execution, tackling against some pretty elusive skill players, that I’ve seen in a long, long time,” said Mike Gundy on Saturday.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
