We’ll weather the storm: Manuel

first_img13 October 2008South Africa faces a tough two years, but has the right economic fundamentals – including a highly rated financial sector – to weather the current turmoil in global markets, Finance Minister Trevor Manuel told the Sunday Times on the weekend.Speaking to the Sunday Times from Washington, where he was attending the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, Manuel said that while South Africans should expect changes, there was no call for panic.While South African financial markets took a beating last week along with the rest of the world – the rand touched a new seven-year low of R9.49 to the US dollar last week, while the JSE’s losses for the year to date climbed to 29% – the country’s banks have escaped the worst of the storm, thanks to their lack of direct exposure to US sub-prime debt.Manuel said the tough macroeconomic decisions South Africa had taken since 1994 had also stood the country in good stead, noting that SA’s banks were last week rated the 15th most secure in the world in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report 2008-09.“That is a very important accolade,” Manuel told the Sunday Times.However, while predicting that the storm would “pass us by”, Manuel cautioned that the government’s infrastructure upgrade programme would now cost more than expected, and that South African consumers should prepare themselves for higher prices.“We need to understand that these are features of the next few years,” Manuel told the newspaper. “We need to know that this is not going to disappear after three months – this is two years and beyond that we are talking about.”Given “the most uncertain economic outlook ever known,” the government would have to make adjustments, Manuel said, but should stick to its plans to upgrade infrastructure and services in order to position South Africa for the next wave of global growth.last_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

Grooveshark Launches Subscription VIP Service

first_imgRelated Posts 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… dana oshiro Not to be outdone by recent announcements from streaming music site Spotify, Gainesville-based Grooveshark announced a $3 per month or $30 per year ad-free Grooveshark VIP service. Grooveshark VIP offers users early access to development pipeline releases including early testing on the upcoming Grooveshark iPhone application and early August 24th access to Grooveshark 2 – the site’s next generation. In addition to offering users WordPress and Facebook integration, Grooveshark spokesperson Josh Bonnain laid down some key differences between Spotify and Grooveshark. Bonnain went on to explain that Grooveshark’s subscription services cost less than a quarter of Spotify’s monthly fees, and will offer many of the same features. For instance, both services stream ad-free music and both allow members to connect and discover premium content. Nevertheless Bonnain points out, “We’re in 231 countries, we’re web-based and our users can upload their entire catalogue to our site. Spotify requires users to install it on every machine they own and they’re only available in a few countries.” Additionally, Bonnain went on to point out the Grooveshark artists community and quiet honestly, we were thrilled to discover it. Beyond the fantastic experience of the music discovery engine and the listener-focused features of the site, Grooveshark actually has a Bandcamp-style service for artists to promote themselves. Tags:#music#NYT#web 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout The Artist Dashboard allows bands to track their most popular songs, fan favorite play lists and measure play counts. Additionally, Grooveshark also allows bands to sell merchandise via Junkytees and TuniPop, license music via Creative Commons, land deals via YouLicense and crowdsource album funding via SellABand. Within the artist’s environment, Grooveshark monetizes its service by offering musicians a chance to have their music advertised and played alongside similar bands. With more than 7 million tracks in its catalogue, the company is effectively leveraging its size and existing audience to make a case as the premier destination for artist promotion. Artists can expect to see their tracks in community playlists and distributed via widgets, links and soon, through mobile playlists. While Spotify’s iPhone application has received a ton of buzz for its ability to play cached music streams, Grooveshark also has an iPhone application in the works. While the app’s current iteration does not allow for offline play, Bonnain assures ReadWriteWeb that the feature is in the mobile developer pipeline and it won’t cost $15 a month to try it when it arrives. While both Grooveshark and Spotify’s premium subscription programs are in their infancy, it will be interesting to see which service will find the right features and licensing partnerships to come out on top. 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more

BlueLock Lets You Customize Your Cloud Infrastructure

first_imgIf you’re a software-as-a-service company you are probably thinking about how cloud computing can save you money and time. The same thing is true for departments in the enterprise that wants to spin up a new service for customers.We had a chance to sit down with BlueLock, one of the leaders in cloud-based infrastructure providers. Their solutions range from quick provisioning using an online form, to becoming your infrastructure team for mission-critical applications. BlueLock represents a part of the trend in virtualization that not only extends physical servers, but allows companies to leverage infrastructure investments to meet the needs of application developers.One of the benefits of cloud computing is the ability to optimize the experience of experts and save money in hosting applications. However, one of the areas that is terminally difficult in the enterprise is configuration management in between the layers of OS, storage, security and network. This is getting more and more focus from the biggest providers in IT – Cisco, Microsoft, EMC, NetApp – but where the rubber hits the road, IT leaders are doing a majority of the work tuning configurations to find the right mix of infrastructure to meet their needs.Custom is King Fully outsourced configuration management of the infrastructure is one of the areas that BlueLock offers. One benefit of this service is the opportunity for an enterprise to configure a cloud to be both production ready, and also have a mirror environment for testing and development. Not all applications are created equally and it is a key part of the job to optimize across layers.This area seems ripe for change and the future is unknown in the sense that today it is unclear which traditional infrastructure tools will evolve into the holy grail of “one click” deploy-and-customize solutions. So, if you want a solution that is cloud hosted today and configurable, it’s worth giving BlueLock a look. This week at VMware Partner Exchange announced the BlueLock CloudSuite. One key feature in the mix is a tailored selection of infrastructure environments.Instead of just cloning infrastructure, BlueLock focuses on tailoring it around the successful patterns we’ve seen in the enterprise. Additionally, its offerings are based on VMware virtualization technology. The mix of cloud computing with customization seem like an ideal marriage for IT managers looking to build towards the cloud. Is customization a key capability that you look for in a cloud hosting provider for your applications?Photo credits: thebestofmyself & Phillip Pessar Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for … Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting How Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloudcenter_img Tags:#cloud#Data Centers#saas#Vendors#Virtualization Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… mike kirkwoodlast_img read more
