Learning made fun for children

first_imgSong and dance are used to teach kids how to use and handle paraffin. (Image: Engen)Paraffin, one of the main sources of fuel for cooking and heating used by disadvantaged people, is to blame for many disasters, such as children drinking it and fires caused by paraffin stoves.Engen KlevaKidz educates rural and township communities about safe handling and storage of paraffin. A national campaign running from 31 August to 11 September is a mobile educational stage drama that is travelling through Mpumalanga.Over the duration of the campaign, it will visit 20 schools in disadvantaged communities, where household use of paraffin is widespread and paraffin-related accidents are common. These include Hammanskraal, Pankop, Phake Rebone Village and Mmametlhake.Launched in 2008, Engen KlevaKidz has reached 139 643 learners in 391 schools. This year, the campaign is visiting 100 new schools across the country.“As the name suggests, the KlevaKidz campaign delivers its empowering safety message through edutainment, including what to do in an emergency,” said Tasneem Sulaiman-Bray, Engen’s general manager for corporate affairs.Engen commissioned research in 2011 on the awareness of children before and after seeing Engen KlevaKidz. It found that awareness improved from 24% to 90% and changed the behaviour of more than 80% of participants.“It is heartening to see such an important message becoming so entrenched,” she added.BEWARE THE DANGERS OF PARAFFINEngen KlevaKidz uses a television quiz show format as a vehicle for relaying the message, which is combined with a catchy jingle – a useful vehicle to help children remember important messages.Through this format it raises awareness of the dangers associated with handling and storing paraffin and how to prevent accidents.“Over the years of Engen’s involvement in paraffin safety we have become aware that children aged eight to 13 are often the primary daytime caregivers of their younger brothers and sisters. It is with this in mind that we target them with the message of safety,” said Mntu Nduvane, Engen’s corporate social investment manager.“We have found edutainment to be a powerful medium to stimulate children’s imagination. What is even more rewarding is to hear children of four years old still singing the paraffin safety jingle afterwards.”last_img read more

19 days agoREVEALED: Why Dembele sent off in Barcelona win

first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say REVEALED: Why Dembele sent off in Barcelona winby Carlos Volcano19 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveRef Miguel Antonio Mateu Lahoz sent off Ousmane Dembele late on in Barcelona’s 4-0 victory over Sevilla.The Frenchman saw red for his reaction to Ronald Araujo’s own red card.The referee report has revealed what Dembele said to get himself his marching orders.”Very bad, you’re very bad,” is what the report claims the player said, while adding that he was making a gesture with his arms.While it’s a far cry from the insults allegedly uttered by Diego Costa last season to earn him an eight-match ban, there is precedent that could see Dembele banned for more than the one automatic match – including the El Clasico against Real Madrid. last_img read more

Ohio State mens ice hockey gearing up for 201415 campaign

Then-sophomore defender Craig Dalrymple (24) skates past a Bowling Green defender Oct. 29, 2013 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 5-3.Credit: Lantern file photoMore than six months after losing the Big Ten Championship in overtime, the Ohio State men’s hockey team is set for its first exhibition of the season on Saturday afternoon in Columbus.The Buckeyes’ exhibition against the University of Guelph will mark the first step in their quest for a NCAA tournament berth, something they’ve been denied for five straight years.Junior defenseman and alternate captain Sam Jardine said the sting of missing last season’s tournament was magnified for this year’s seniors — who have endured three years of postseason disappointment.Before last season’s 5-4 overtime loss to Wisconsin in Big Ten Championship, the Buckeyes failed to make the final round of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs in 2012 and 2013.“The veterans returning have a real bitter attitude toward the way things finished last year,” Jardine said. “It’s been good motivation.”While OSU has eight seniors on this season’s roster, coach Steve Rohlik said the departure of two upperclassmen has created questions for the Buckeyes’ offense.“We’re going to have to have a lot of guys score eight goals,” Rohlik said. “We’re going to have to score by committee and we’re going to have to be good at special teams.”Forwards Max McCormick and Ryan Dzingel, who combined for 24.5 percent of OSU’s scoring last season, both signed contracts with the Ottawa Senators during the offseason.Senior forward captain Tanner Fritz is the team’s top offensive returner. Fritz finished last season with the third-most points on the team (32) despite battling an injury that kept him out of the lineup for five games.Even with Fritz, OSU will have to get offensive contributions from all four lines to compensate for its losses, Jardine said.“The best teams do score by committee,” Jardine said. “I’m personally not worried about our team and the ability to score goals.”Freshmen gave the Buckeyes offensive support last season as first-years combined for 23 goals. Sophomore forward Nick Schilkey led OSU rookies in points with 13 goals and 13 assists.Saturday’s exhibition will give Rohlik his first opportunity to see this season’s seven freshmen compete against college-level competition.“I see a lot of guys playing because I think everyone on our roster can contribute right now,” Rohlik said.The Buckeyes’ returners have already had an opportunity to see the team’s new crop in practice. Fritz said he’s pleased with the class and has made special note of forwards Nicholas Jones and Matt Weis.“There’s two guys that have a ton of skills and read the game well,” Fritz said.Following a year where OSU had six different goalies on its roster, it will start the season with three goalies on its depth chart.Sophomore goalie Christian Frey joined Fritz, Schilkey and sophomore defenseman Drew Brevig on the Big Ten Preseason Players to Watch list. Frey joined OSU midway through last season after playing in the USHL, finishing with a 2.27 goals against average and .929 save percentage in 16 games.Rohlik noted that sophomore goalies Matt Tomkins and Logan Davis will also compete for the starting role.Rohlik said that senior defenseman Craig Dalrymple has not skated at 100 percent this season due to injury, but added the rest of OSU’s lineup is healthy.Fritz reported that he’d been felt an “aching feeling” in his leg during off-ice workouts, but said he underwent a precautionary MRI this week and the injury was not serious.The Buckeyes are scheduled to drop the puck at 4:30 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Lennar Picked as Master Developer for Concord Naval Weapons Station

Lennar Picked as Master Developer for Concord Naval Weapons Station

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Concord City Council on Wednesday selected Lennar Urban as master developer for the first phase of the redevelopment of the former Concord Naval Weapons Station in northern California, after securing a number of concessions during recent negotiations.The city reopened talks with Lennar in March after Catellus Development Corp. withdrew from consideration due to its loss of trust in the city’s selection process.“We are very grateful for this opportunity,” Kofi Bonner, Lennar regional vice president said in a written statement, reported East Bay Times. “There is a lot of work ahead of us, but I can assure you that we are committed to working with city staff, the U.S. Navy and the people of Concord to remake the naval weapons station into a vibrant new area that will make this city proud,” Bonner said.The two parties are expected to spend up to nine months reaching agreement on a disposition and development agreement. Concord’s reuse plan calls for building up to 12,272 housing units and 6.1 million square feet of commercial space on about 2,300 acres at the weapons station.Lennar’s revised proposal would guarantee the city a $20 million payment over 10 years, with profit-sharing once the company earns a 20 percent return on its investment. The revenue-sharing component could return an additional $23 million to Concord; the firm’s previous offer, however, would have guaranteed the city a $30 million payment, according to the story.Lennar also would spend $40 million for affordable housing and spend nearly $16 million to widen Willow Pass Road to four lanes and rebuild Willow Pass bridge as a four-lane span.After the Navy begins to turns over land to Concord in the spring of 2017, the city plans to transfer individual parcels to Lennar when it demonstrates it is ready to begin development and has financing in place.last_img read more

Modimania and the Muslim turnaround

Modimania and the Muslim turnaround

first_imgFilmmaker and social activist Mahesh Bhatt, who once campaigned for the Congress during elections, has taken a positive attitude towards Narendra Modi. ‘We as civil society must acknowledge, applaud and reciprocate the gesture of Gujarat chief minister,’ Bhatt told Sudesh Verma, author of the new book Narendra Modi: The Gamechanger. Mahesh Bhatt’s statement came after Modi’s expression of remorse in his blog following his exoneration by the Ahmedabad Court in the case involving Zakia Jafri. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The aggrieved side should now take the initiative to set aside the acrimony and create conditions to enable people to live in peace and harmony, he said. ‘I personally feel, whenever anybody — no matter how opposed I may be to his politics — makes a gesture of reconciliation, talks about harmony and talks about healing the wounds; it must be applauded, acknowledged and reciprocated. This is my response. If I keep talking about peace and I do not take the initiative to bring peace, then I do not want peace. And I do not live of conflict, there are people who live of conflict.’ Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThis is the biggest indictment of that section of public opinion makers that thrives on conflict and hate. Bhatt’s gesture of reconciliation is being echoed by many prominent Muslims who have begun to look at Modi with hope. The book, in fact, argues that there is likely to be a Muslim turnaround for Modi in the country.The biggest example is the statement by Mufti Aijaz Arshad Qasmi, the youngest member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board, who says Modi will be a good Prime Minister who will deliver justice to all.He said that worse riots had taken place in the country. It was Modi’s bad luck that he was the chief minister of Gujarat in 2002, the book has quoted the Mufti as saying.last_img read more
