Zuma pays tribute to Van Zyl Slabbert

first_img17 May 2010President Jacob Zuma has joined thousands of mourners in expressing his condolences to the family of former South African opposition leader, political analyst and businessman Frederik Van Zyl Slabbert, who passed away on Friday.Van Zyl Slabbert died at the age of 70 after spending some time at a Johannesburg hospital.Zuma said Van Zyl Slabbert’s visionary leadership lived on in the government’s efforts to build and strengthen democracy in South Africa.“He will be remembered as a principled and patriotic South African who served his country diligently,” Zuma said.Van Zyl Slabbert, whose conventional Afrikaner upbringing did not prevent him from recognising the folly of the apartheid system, played a prominent role in the struggle against apartheid.A sociologist by training, his academic work brought him into contact with people of other races at the height of apartheid. This laid the seeds for his opposition to the system, Zuma said.As a Member of Parliament, Van Zyl Slabbert was an outspoken critic of minority rule.“He will be remembered in particular for his courage and foresight in leading a group of white South Africans to Dakar, Senegal in 1987 for talks with the ANC that proved a critical moment on the path towards a negotiated settlement.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Big Changes at Twitterfeed; Real-Time Publishing Rolling Out Now

first_imgmarshall kirkpatrick 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Real-Time Web#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting What does your blog have in common with CNN, the Wall St. Journal and the White House? You probably publish your updates to Twitter using Twitterfeed, just like those organizations do. Starting today if you publish on Blogger, Typepad or another publishing system that offers PubSubHubbub feeds Twitterfeed will subscribe and push your new posts to Twitter in a matter of moments.That’s not the only change going live, either. Publishing to Facebook? Check. An improved queue management system for greater reliability? Check. Integration with Google Analytics? Check!Earlier this afternoon Twitterfeed launched a new version of the service used by nearly 350,000 publishers. We caught up with the company at today’s ReadWrite Real-Time Web Summit and got the low-down on the changes rolling out to all users over the next few days.Twitterfeed believes it will now be the biggest subscriber to PubSubHubbub feeds and aims to test the system’s latency performance. No more 20 to 30 minute delays in publishing to Twitter if you’re on a Pubsubhubbub-enabled publishing system.Publishing to Facebook will be a huge win for many of those publishers and integration with both Bit.ly and Google Analytics through the integration of UTM tags will allow publishers to compare audience response in Facebook and Twitter (among other things). Real-time, cross-network publishing and analytics as a service? That’s pretty hot. With almost 350,000 publishers, Twitterfeed is approaching the number of publishers that FeedBurner had (430,000) when it was acquired by Google for a rumored $100 million. Like FeedBurner for the real-time web? That and more is what Twitterfeed could become if these kinds of technical developements could succeed.center_img Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

Using a Dimple Mat to Keep a Basement Wall Dry

Start Free Trial Already a member? Log incenter_img Homeowners with problematic basements often post questions on GBA. They generally complain that their basements are damp, and that basement moisture problems aren’t easy to fix.Solutions to damp basement problems are only indirectly connected to the topic of green building. In recent years, however, green builders — that is, builders who focus on energy efficiency — have become experts on moisture problems in buildings, in part because insulation problems are intimately tied to moisture problems.In short, green builders are more likely to build a dry basement than a run-of-the-mill builders — and in this way, building a dry basement has become a green building concern.One elegant and simple way to reduce the chance of moisture problems in basements is to install a dimple mat on the exterior side of the basement walls. What is a dimple mat? A dimple mat is a sheet of semi-rigid plastic (usually high-density polyethylene) that comes in a roll. The plastic has an egg-carton shape, with protruding dimples that make the membrane fairly thick — generally between 1/4 inch and 1/2 inch thick.When a dimple mat is placed against a concrete wall, the dimples make the plastic stand out from the wall, leaving a free-draining air space between the plastic and the concrete. If any water reaches this air space, it easily flows to the bottom of the dimple mat. It’s part of a system While a dimple mat helps convey water to the bottom of a basement wall, it’s not enough to keep a basement dry. The dimple mat is intended to be part of a drainage system that includes a footing drain (see Image #2, below). Ideally, the footing drain system includes perforated 4-inch piping surrounded by crushed stone and a filter-fabric “burrito.” The footing drain needs… last_img read more
