Pretoria Airport ready for 2010

first_img“We have signed guarantees to provide sufficient and safe transport operations to enable the movement of spectators during the World Cup,” he said. “We believe the transport sector is one of the most important sectors for this event, both from legacy and event delivery perspective.” Speaking at the launch of the new airport last week, Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele said the airport would also be able to handle traffic between Pretoria and Rustenburg, as well as serve as a refuelling centre for aircraft during the tournament. Scheduled flights will be operated under an independent airline, Interlink Airlines, with flights to Durban, Cape Town, Polokwane and other parts of the country. From the airport, fans can then easily be integrated into other modes of transport such as rail, buses and taxis to get the soccer match venue. 2010 legacy project The airport expects to handle in the region of 6 800 general aviation and helicopter passengers a year. Ndebele said this would contribute to a successful economy and ensure the creation of even more jobs. Wonderboom National Airport in Tshwane/Pretoria, recently updgraded to the tune of R440-million, is expected to be used extensively by fans and Fifa delegates travelling to and from the city during the 2010 Fifa World Cup™.center_img The government has invested over R440-million in the project through the Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality, and a total of 1 629 jobs were created during the construction phase. “Transport is the heartbeat of the South African economy. We must continue to intensify our work towards improving the social and economic development of our people.” The upgraded and improved infrastructure at the airport includes arrivals and departure halls, a porte-cochere with kiosks, and a public transport facility developed for tour buses and mini-bus taxis. The airport parking facility has also been upgraded. Source: BuaNews 2 November 2009 Ndebele said the airport would become an important part of the legacies of the 2010 World Cup.last_img read more

One of the interesting things about how well Oracle is doing is that a large part of the company’s revenue growth is coming from new licenses for its proprietary database software. Even as database types are diversifying and open source competitors step up their game, Oracle is still crushing it.David Linthicum wrote earlier this year that the won’t open source won’t gain in the cloud. I disagree. Plenty of open source software is being used to build clouds. But I think what we’re seeing is that the cloud isn’t curbing the adoption of proprietary software.Are you still using proprietary databases in your enterprise?

How Facebook’s New Sound Notifications Could Boost Engagement

first_imgHear that? No? Well, that’s because Facebook is testing a new audio notification system to select members, and if you’re not one of the first batch of guinea pigs, all is still quiet on your profile. But if this feature catches on, you and the rest of Facebook’s billion networkers might soon hear a ping every time someone sends you a message, posts to your wall or tags you in a photo. And despite last week’s largely negative coverage about the new service by over-engaged journalists, Facebook insiders and some user interface and user experience (UI/UX) designers are calling it a boon for engagement.Lend Me An EarFacebook has used sound notifications for its chat tool since 2008, and its mobile messenger app also has sound. Both alert you to new messages.“There is user demand for sounds,” explained Brittany Darwell, the lead writer at Inside Facebook. “It makes sense to allow a sound option for other desktop notifications, too.” Darwell cites the recent Facebook sound bug in Apple iOS iPhones as an example of demand for improved audio on the site. She says people want the option to be informed aurally.“Some users want sound and are even upset when they don’t hear them,” Darwell said.  Sound Good?The new alert is an electronic bee-deep, like the one employed by Skype. Don’t worry, the Facebook tone can be turned off. It’s not known if the sound that Facebook has been testing ultimately will be used, much less if the feature itself will ever be rolled out to the public. “This is just a test with a small percentage of users,” said Meredith Chin, Facebook’s manager of corporate communications. “We’ll see how it goes before rolling it out.”More certain is the power of the sound. While some heavily connected Facebook users surely will be turned off by it, mid-level and casual users could become more engaged by this Pavlovian call to action. “It draws people back,” says Asher Hunt, head of mobile design at LivePerson Mobile. “The sound is a trigger point. People are addicted to these.” Hunt thinks the alert will keep Facebook members connected and strengthen their overall experience. He compares the alert to people walking through the cacophony of a casino:  “All it takes is hearing that sound once, and you’re back on the site.”  Testing 1, 2, 1, 2Here’s the alert in action: Related Posts adam popescu Tags:#Facebook#notification#social media#sound Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Photo courtesy of Shutterstock.

Report: Four Programs Lobbying Big 12 For Expansion

first_imgThe Big 12 Conference's logo.With lots of chatter surrounding Big 12 expansion, we’ve already brought you our opinion on how the next phase of conference realignment could unfold. Now, ESPN has some intriguing information regarding which schools the Big 12 could target if it does indeed expand. According to Big 12 writer Jake Trotter, four institutions have already begun lobbying the Big 12 for consideration: Houston, Memphis, UCF and Colorado State. From Trotter:With Big 12 expansion back on the table, officials from the University of Houston, the University of Memphis, University of Central Florida and Colorado State University have been lobbying members of the Big 12’s composition committee, according to documents ESPN.com has obtained.West Virginia president Gordon Gee is one of three Big 12 presidents on the committee, which is charged with exploring expansion candidates. Documents reveal that Gee has been busy in that role in recent months, which has included a trip to the University of Houston in late November.Additionally, Trotter says FedEx, which is headquartered in Memphis, is offering major sponsorship of Big 12 football and basketball if the Tigers are added to the league. This was originally part of Memphis’ pitch to the old Big East a few years back. Documents obtained show FedEx primed to back Memphis’ Big 12 candidacy, prepared to sponsor Big 12 title game: https://t.co/Fa8jbDEbwS— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) May 10, 2016The most interesting aspect of Trotter’s report? Probably that UConn and Cincinnati are nowhere to be found, considering those are two schools many have linked to the Big 12, including us here at College Spun.  Also, would Oklahoma and Texas, the two premier programs in the league, really be okay with these additions? Or would they look to bolt for greener pastures? Whatever the answer, buckle up because the realignment well may start turning fast and furiously. [ ESPN ]last_img read more

Can Roger Federer Finally Win A Davis Cup

The average team wins at home 63 percent of the time and on the road just 37 percent of the time. But the differential is much smaller for France and even smaller for Switzerland. In fact, France lost the past two finals it hosted, in 1999 and 2002.Andrew Flowers contributed to the analysis of data supplied by the International Tennis Federation. This story appears in ESPN The Magazine’s Nov. 24 The State of Football Issue. The farther Cup teams have to travel, the worse they perform (though traveling between 501 and 1,000 miles seems particularly tough). Luckily for Roger & Co.: Lille is just 325 miles from the Swiss capital of Bern, minimizing the French advantage. Roger Federer holds a record 17 Grand Slam titles, but there’s one trophy he’s still itching to lift: the Davis Cup. Starting Friday, he gets his best chance yet. In his first Davis Cup final, the 33-year-old ace and his Swiss teammates will battle the French in Lille, France.Yes, playing away from home significantly diminishes the win probability for the Swiss. And because Davis Cup rules dictate that the host country gets to choose the playing surface, Federer will be forced to compete on clay, his least favorite type of court — without much practice, after a back problem kept him sidelined until a short session Wednesday.But the good news for Federer is that Lille is a
 lot closer to home than Melbourne, where he lost to the Australians in 2003, the only other time he made a Cup semifinal. Plus, Switzerland is one of a handful of major teams to maintain a winning Cup road record since the modern era began in 1972.Of course, the second-ranked Federer is simply better most days than any of his Lille opponents. (France is led by No. 12 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.) And he’s so popular globally that he takes home-court advantage with him when he travels. Consider Roland Garros. “When he plays a French player,” says France’s Gilles Simon, “[the crowd] is 50-50, and I’m like, ‘Guys, what’s going on?’ ”The Swiss aren’t likely to feel that much love in Lille. But they still have plenty on their side to get the job done. Here’s a closer look at the factors in their favor. Federer’s 37–7 Davis Cup singles record is even more impressive when you consider that he’s been even better on the road than at home—especially in Europe, where he’s won his past 15 matches. read more

Jansen has 25 goose eggs on the season, but no broken eggs, our term for when a pitcher enters the game with an opportunity to earn a goose egg but is charged with at least one earned run instead.1Jansen does have one “meh,” which is when a pitcher enters the game in a goose situation but is awarded neither a goose egg nor a broken egg because a run was scored yet not charged to the reliever. The record for most goose eggs in a season without a broken egg is held by Brad Lidge, who had 34 goose eggs and no broken eggs in 2008.As a result of this perfect conversion rate, Jansen leads baseball with 3.6 goose wins above replacement (GWAR) and is on pace for 6.5 GWAR, which would make for one of the top half-dozen relief pitching seasons of all time. Rivero and Miller are second and third in GWAR this season. You can find goose-egg statistics for these and all other relief pitchers in the sortable table below.

With the possible exception of the Astros’ Chris Devenski — who leads the majors with 52.2 relief innings but whose effectiveness has diminished as the season has worn on — none of these pitchers are being used in the Goose Gossage mold of the 1970s, when star relievers often threw 100 or more innings in a season. This is particularly true for Jansen, whose workload has always been managed carefully. (He’s on pace for only 68 innings this year.) But if teams are still using pitchers such as Jansen, Rivero and the Indians’ Andrew Miller for only 60 to 80 innings a season, they’re increasingly picking the right innings for them to pitch. By contrast, closers such as the Rockies’ Greg Holland and the Twins’ Brandon Kintzler have rarely made fireman appearances but have often been used to close out big, relatively safe leads. Although they have more saves than pitchers like Jansen and Rivero, Holland and Kintzler have fewer goose eggs and have provided less overall value to their clubs.

But Jansen has been considerably more valuable to the Dodgers than those save numbers imply. That’s because Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has been deploying Jansen in high-leverage situations that other managers often shield their closers from. Jansen has made 10 multi-inning appearances so far this year. He’s been brought into the game with runners on base nine times. And he’s entered in tied games in eight appearances. l call all of these “firemen appearances” because they resemble how teams used their top relievers in the era a few decades ago when the best relievers were referred to as “firemen” instead of closers.These firemen appearances have not necessarily helped Jansen earn saves; a pitcher can’t earn a save when he enters in a tied game, for instance. But they do provide opportunities for him to earn goose eggs, the new relief-pitcher statistic that we developed this spring. (The short version: A pitcher gets a goose egg for a clutch, scoreless relief inning, including in a tied game.) Jansen has 25 goose eggs, which ties him for third this season. He and his fellow goose-egg leaders — including the Pirates’ Felipe Rivero, who leads MLB with 27 — are routinely making firemen appearances: Chad GreenNYY022-0.7 Ian KrolATL623+0.1 Adam OttavinoCOL1372-0.4 Alex WilsonDET1064-0.7 Matt BushTEX1561+0.2 Kenley Jansen25211089 PITCHER▲▼TEAM▲▼GOOSE EGGS▲▼BROKEN EGGS▲▼MEHS▲▼GWAR▲▼ David HernandezLAA811+0.9 Pedro BaezLAD734-0.1 Jose RamirezATL1241+0.3 Kevin QuackenbushSD110-0.2 PITCHERGOOSE EGGSSAVESMULTI-INNINGRUNNERS ONTIE GAMES James HoytHOU110-0.2 Matt BelisleMIN1333+0.9 Robert GsellmanNYM210-0.1 Ernesto FrieriTEX010-0.4 Sam FreemanATL502+0.7 Zach BrittonBAL600+0.9 Josh HaderMIL100+0.1 Jake JunisKC100+0.2 Giovanny GallegosNYY010-0.4 Jim JohnsonATL1761+0.3 Chris HatcherLAD121-0.6 Xavier CedenoTB013-0.4 Paul SewaldNYM122-0.6 Alec AsherBAL311+0.1 Alex WoodLAD301+0.4 Robert StephensonCIN220-0.4 Neil RamirezNYM012-0.4 Kelvin Herrera1619025 Ken Giles919151 Brent SuterMIL001+0.0 Check out our latest MLB predictions.
