first_imgThe number of people employed in the Donegal Gaeltacht declined by 243 in 2010, figures released by Udaras na Gaeltachta have revealed. A total of 194 new jobs were created leaving the number of people employed on a full-time basis by Udaras at 2,007.A total of €16.7million was invested in providing the 193 jobs, many of which will come on stream in 2011 and subsequent years. The majority of job losses occurred in the Largo Foods group of companies based on the Gaoth Dobhair Business Park. In 2009, Largo Export Foods Ltd announced that the group needed to restructure as a result of increased competitiveness in the market place, unfavourable exchange rates and high production costs.A reduction of the workforce was necessary to allow for restructuring and the lay-offs are evident in the 2010 employment figures.“We are encouraged however by the significant investment made by Largo Foods group last year to redevelop their business to target the healthy snack food niche market.  An tÚdarás is confident that employment numbers will rise again when this development is implemented,” said an Udaras spokesman.The spokesman added that companies in the tourism sector and companies related to the construction industry also saw a drop in employment numbers.JOBS IN DONEGAL GAELTACHT DROP BY 243 IN 2010 was last modified: January 24th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL may be feeling the horror of the recession but one community is reaping the benefits – of a horror movie!The Inishowen Peninsula has been given a welcome boost after the arrival of cast and crew to film the comedy horror Grabbers.Dozens of crew arrived across Inishowen a couple of weeks ago and many hotels and coffee shops are feeling the spin-off. A number of businesses including the Carlton Redcastle Hotel say that many of their rooms are block-booked at a normally quiet time of the year.The film stars Richard Coyle ( Coupling ), Ruth Bradley ( The Clinic) , Russell Tovey ( Being Human ) and Bronagh Gallagher ( The Commitments ).It’s a comedy horror about a bunch of squid-like creatures who take over a small town.The only way people can escape them is to get drunk, which they all end up doing. Of course that would be absolutely nothing to do with the fact that many bars across Inishowen are also reporting an upturn in trade since the arrival of cast and crew for the film.Another local business success story to benefit from the arrival of the film-makers is Caffe Banba which is owned by Malin Head man Dominic McDermott whose mobile coffee shop has been working around the clock.EndsHORROR AS INISHOWEN FIGHTS OFF RECESSION WITH A MOVIE! was last modified: January 27th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgToday’s Sun picks up on QPR chairman Tony Fernandes’ comments on Twitter immediately after Saturday’s defeat against Sunderland.Under the headline ‘Tony blasts Cisse’, it refers to Fernandes’ angry reaction to Djibril Cisse’s sending off – the striker’s second since his recent move to Loftus Road.Cisse is suspended again.Fernandes tweeted: “This is the first time I am genuinely p****d off. We have to bloody keep 11 players on the pitch.“Boy, do we make it difficult. We have eight games left, four at home, which are winnable.“It is up to the players now — we’ve done all we can. The manager can do nothing if players keep getting booked and sent off.”The Sun also include a story that Benfica winger Nico Gaitan believes Chelsea are feeling anxious ahead of their Champions League game against his side.Gaitan is quoted as saying: “I think there is an anxiety in Chelsea by the lack of goals from Torres and Drogba.“We can exploit that and even though it will be difficult to stop them, it is possible and I have confidence we will keep a clean sheet.”Several papers report Petr Cech’s comment that Chelsea failing to qualify for the Champions League would mean a “lost year” for the club.The Blues keeper added: “You always have years when you go through transition and the side needs to be rebuilt. Or you have changes in terms of managers.“For a big club, you can accept that the team does not win the league because it is in transition, but you cannot afford to slip out of the Champions League spot. The big teams are about the Champions League.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgStoke boss Tony Pulis felt his side ‘absolutely murdered’ Fulham – but admitted they had to weather late pressure to seal the points.The Potters enjoyed the lion’s share of chances during a forgettable clash at the Britannia Stadium, but had to settle for Charlie Adam’s decisive first half strike.And Pulis was concerned their inability to finish off Fulham could have come back to haunt them, as the Whites pressed late on.He said: “I thought we absolutely murdered them – we could have had five or six.“I thought we were the better team right up until about the 82nd minute. Then, having dominated the game we got a little bit nervous.“They had a lot of possession but it was mainly in front of us.”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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgBoth of the Bay Area NFL quarterbacks turned in bad Week One performances.Both faced elite defenses. Both were let down by their supporting casts, to varrying degrees, up front and out wide. Both threw three interceptions.But there is a big difference between 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo’s poor game against the Vikings and Raiders quarterback Derek Carr’s poor performance against the Rams, and that difference is why I’m betting on Garoppolo to bounce back in Week Two and why I’m not …last_img

Here she is with Thobile Mushwana, a Play Your Part ambassador. (Images: Mathiba Molefe)Melissa JavanBrand South Africa’s Play Your Part won a Gold award at the Loeries this year, held at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli International Convention Centre in Durban. The Loeries awards ceremonies were held on 19 and 20 August 2017 during Loeries Creative Week Durban.The Loeries are the marketing and advertising industry’s awards. They are an opportunity for brands and marketers to view the very best work coming out of the region. All countries from Africa and the Middle East may enter all the categories, but entries from outside South Africa are judged separately.The Media Update reported that more than 3,000 entries were received, with 20% of them from outside South Africa. A total of 800 brands were represented by 400 agencies from 18 countries in Africa and the Middle East.The awardsThere were more than 240 Loeries awarded in 22 categories, including five Grand Prix, 34 Golds, 24 CraftGolds, 73 Silvers, and 102 Bronzes.The special awards included Nathan Reddy of Grid Worldwide, who was inducted into the Loeries Hall of Fame. He is the first designer to receive this honour.Brand South Africa was entered in the Radio Communication: South African Non-English Radio Station Commercials category. Its agency, The Odd Number, won the Gold for the After Tears radio ad for Play Your Part.Listen to the advert (or read the subtitles) here:In the same category, The Odd Number won a Silver for its BBC Lifestyle campaign, Hell’s Kitchen – Mama, Mfundisi, for the Hell’s Kitchen initiative.Joe Public won a Silver award for its Back to School campaign for Jet, called Hand-me-downs – Is’khaftini, Is’cathulo, Isokisi.Runners-up in the category were DDB, which won a Bronze for the Medal Paints Inkanyamba campaign, as did I See A Different You for the self-promotion campaign, Wa hamba Nathi.Communication for niche audiencesLoeries CEO Andrew Human told Campaign Middle East that the Loeries focused on being a regional specialist show. “In our judging, our judges are guided to look for regional excellence, to look for regional relevance.“Often you might find that niche work that may be overlooked in a global show, is what really comes out here and might get a strong award… We are looking for work in local languages that has a small cultural significance to the niche audience,” he said.“It doesn’t have to be a global campaign. It doesn’t have to make sense in London and in New York City. It can make sense in one city, in one country and region and we want to see how communication is being targeted to niche regional audiences.”The Q&APlay Your Part is a movement not a campaign, explained Sithembile Ntombela, Brand South Africa’s general manager of marketing. She was speaking at the media launch of the Play Your Part television series on 24 August 2017. “A campaign ends.“It is imperative to get South Africans to rally behind the Nation’s Brand. There are endless opportunities of getting involved and that is Play Your Part is a call to action programme that challenges every South African to play their part in their communities and contribute towards a positive social change.Sithembile NtombelaJournalist Melissa Javan spoke to Ntombela following the Gold Loerie win; she talked about what Play Your Part was currently doing:Melissa Javan: Congratulations on the Loerie win. How do you feel about it?Sithembile Ntombela: Ecstatic! Play Your Part was launched in 2011 with an objective of promoting active citizenship among citizens with a view that when we as a collective play our part, we will achieve what is set out in the country’s vision.After six years of hard work, receiving a gold award is a huge success and a key milestone for the organisation. This is also indicative of a hard working organisation, an organisation that continues to create a Nation Brand that inspires its people and is admired globally. Play Your Part affords us with a platform of bringing inspiration to life.MJ: What was the idea behind the radio ad?SN: The big idea was to show the reality of the consequences of driving after drinking alcohol. We believe that the number of road accidents continue to be on the rise and the campaign objective was really to activate the “rude awakening” of this reality.That is why the set of the ad is in heaven. If all citizens can play their part and promote responsible driving, the number of accidents can be reduced.MJ: Why was it specifically targeted at non-English speakers?SN: My view is that due to the lingo used, the ad lands itself naturally to a vernacular station. The plan is to get stakeholders to promote the ad and flight it on various platforms, including social media.MJ: Was it part of a campaign?SN: It was a tactical advert in support of the Arrive Alive campaign, which is often championed by the Department of Transport.MJ: How often does Brand South Africa do campaigns like these?SN: Brand South Africa works with and through various stakeholders and there are different collaborations that often take place. For example, there are the South African Premier Business Awards in collaboration with Proudly SA and the Department of Trade and Industry.However, this advert will be aired on different radio channels during the holiday season, with the objective of issuing a strong call to action.MJ: Can you name a few campaigns you are busy with now?SN: We are working with the Department of Trade and Industry on the South African Premier Business Awards. We are also busy with the Play Your Part TV series, which will start airing on 26 August 2017 on SABC 2, at 18h00.In addition, we are promoting the nation brand on international platforms through a partnership with CNN. We have an on-going media engagement to strengthen our relations with the media and get them to understand the nation brand performance.MJ: How important are the Loeries for South Africa?SN: Very important. They enhance the nation brand’s reputation and hopefully this can help in promoting the visibility of Brand South Africa. For me, the Loeries are a platform of celebrating creativity, talent and innovation. If a brand gets recognition at the Loeries, it enhances that brand’s reputation.MJ: Any final thoughts?SN: We will continue to work hard to ensure that the nation brand is recognised and that many South Africans can rally behind the brand and support Brand South Africa in advancing the long-term reputation and competitiveness of South Africa.Watch this year’s Loeries and the winners on its official site.Sources: Loeries, Campaign Middle East and Campaign Middle East, YouTube.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

first_img17 July 2013Government, business, labour and civil society collaboration to improve the quality of education in South Africa entered a new phase on Tuesday with the launch of the National Education Collaboration Framework Trust (NECT).The trust is a civil society partnership aimed at strengthening cooperation among business, labour and civil society formations to improve education outcomes in the country.Speaking at the launch of the trust in Pretoria on Tuesday, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe said the initiative would multiply opportunities for collaborations that enabled government and education stakeholders to bring about improvements in a co-ordinated fashion.“Like you, we believe that both the government and the non-governmental groupings have a common goal of improving the quality of education, but do not as yet share a common understanding of the roles that they expect of each other or have to play towards achieving this common goal.”Motlanthe noted that interventions by the private sector had demonstrated that even learners that attended poorly resourced schools could achieve excellent results if provided with the required support.According to the Department of Basic Education, the trust will not replace current civil society and business projects in education. Rather, it will galvanise the many civil society and government commitments that already exist, applying lessons from the past and seizing existing opportunities to improve education.The trust’s objectives will include improving the quality of schooling, overseeing the implementation of national education collaboration programmes, and ensuring that such programmes are suited to their context.Also speaking at Tuesday’s launch, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga commended the trust’s members for working tirelessly for the formation of the initiative, which has the thumbs-up from all stakeholders.The NECT’s founding trustee include FirstRand CEO Sizwe Nxasana; Business Leadership SA’s Mark Lamberti; Deloitte executive chair Futhi Mtoba; Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga; Basic Education Director-General Bobby Soobrayan; National Professional Teachers’ Association of SA president Basil Manuel; SA Democratic Teachers Union deputy secretary-general Nkosana Dolopi; and Brian Figaji, former vice-chancellor of Peninsula Technikon.The NECT’s patrons include businessman Cyril Ramaphosa, former Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Business Leadership SA president Bobby Godsell, and James Motlatsi, former president of the National Union of Mineworkers.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
