R60bn investment plan for E Cape

first_img1 June 2007South Africa’s Eastern Cape has launched a public-private initiative that aims to attract R60-billion worth of investment into the largely rural, eastern part of the province over the next 10 years.Planned projects – designed to capitalise on the region’s high rainfall and large labour supply – include a new dam for hydroelectric power and irrigation and an agricultural irrigation scheme.A special purpose, government-owned company – Asgisa Eastern Cape Pty Ltd – has been launched to oversee the projects. Eastern Cape Premier Nosimo Balindlela said in a statement last month that the projects driven by Asgisa Eastern Cape would help develop Mthatha into the third major city in the province, after Port Elizabeth and East London.The first “mega-project” will be the multi-billion rand Umzimvubu Basin Water Management project, which will be linked to an irrigation scheme covering a large section of the former Transkei.According to Business Day, a dam will be constructed on the Umzimvubu River – South Africa’s largest undammed river – with a hydro-electric power station capable of generating 2 000 megawatts of electricity.Access to water through the associated irrigation scheme will enable the development of other industries such as forestry and the cultivation of grain and canola, which is used in the production of bio-fuels.“This project will strengthen water security and electricity supply in the province and nationally,” Balindlela said.A second project to be overseen by Asgisa Eastern Cape will be the development of the province’s forestry and timber industry by creating up to 100 000 hectares of plantations over the next 10 years.“Nationwide, the timber industry has employed about 170 000 people and has annually contributed about R16-billion to the economy, and [it] is expected to play a similar role in the province,” Balindlela said.Balindlela has appointed a board of directors for Asgisa Eastern Cape that includes Wiseman Nkuhlu, a former economic adviser to President Thabo Mbeki; Gloria Serobe, the founder of women’s empowerment group Wiphold; and Coega Development Corporation chief executive Pepi Silinga.Businessman and politician Saki Macozoma has been appointed as the company’s chairman. A chief executive is expected to be appointed shortly.All of the company’s endeavours, Balindlela said, would aim to “halve poverty in the area by 2014 and make the Eastern Cape a compelling place to live, work and invest.”SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Snapchat Wants You To Stop Using Third Party Apps

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#APIs#cybersecurity#nude photos#Snapchat#third party apps A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit lauren orsini Related Posts center_img Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Snapchat will now begin warning users when it detects they are using third party apps, the company’s Tuesday blog post reads.“Starting today, we will notify Snapchatters when we have detected that they may be using third-party apps and we’ll ask those Snapchatters to change their password and stop using unauthorized apps,” the company wrote.See also: Snapchat Blames Victims In Nude Photo LeakEver since an October attack made 13 GB of thousands of Snapchat user photos public, the company has been doing damage control, blaming its users for downloading third-party tools and programs to integrate with Snapchat. Usually, third-party programs are perfectly secure when it comes to social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and more which offer a public API for developers who want to make tools that integrate with a network. However, Snapchat’s API isn’t available, developers are forced to use a less secure workaround of accessing user credentials. That’s what happened with SnapSaved, the third party site hacked in October’s photo leak. See also: Snapchat Claims It Can’t Afford To Keep Your Photos SecureSnapchat is valued at $10 billion, with its 24-year-old CEO Evan Spiegel paying himself a $10 million salary, but the company said it cannot afford to make and maintain a trustworthy API or developer program available. Users will simply have to learn that even if third-party applications are safe most of the time, the Snapchat ecosystem is not.Snapchat’s alternate solution is to warn users if they are using third party programs, tell them to stop, and prompt them to change their password. It’s certainly a cheap solution to the problem, but not one that benefits the user.last_img read more
