Tasty Danish win at Pleasant Valley

first_imgThe Pattaya Golf Society (IPGC) at Rabbi’s Elephant BarWith golf courses drying out, the Pattaya Golf Society travelled to Pleasant Valley on Wednesday, 14th October to play a stableford competition from the blue tees. The front nine was in good shape with soft fairways allowing some run and the greens were consistent if slow.  The back nine was a problem with greens similar to egg boxes, covered in Velcro!  A lack of cutting opportunities had left uneven surfaces with overgrown spiky grass that made putting a problem.  However a day on the golf course is still better than one in the office and the field made headway where they could.In a lowly third place was Mr Len with 27 points, the back nine being his nemesis, whilst Jim Proctor fared much better finishing with 32 points for second place.  In the final group Danish golfer Jorn Eriksen was making the most of every opportunity and his birdie ‘2’ on the eighth served as a spur to complete his round with 36 points for an emphatic win. Meanwhile the Lord Buddha is still being petitioned to call an end to the wet season as soon as possible so Pattaya golfers can take full advantage of the challenges on offer at the province’s unique golf courses.Good move for EriksenA call from Crystal Bay the day before led to the Pattaya Golf Society redirecting its GPS to Mountain Shadow on Friday, 18th October, to play a stableford event in the drier of the sister courses.  As expected, a crowded first tee greeted the group but being given priority the PGS golfers set out on time on the testing track, from the blue tees.Good progress was made until the threatened gloom descended around the eleventh hole and for five of the golfers the deluge was too much and they withdrew to the comfort of the clubhouse and a hot shower.  The rest meanwhile continued and finished their round with Steve Jones and new member Gordon Angus sharing third place with 28 points.  A birdie ‘2’ on hole five was some consolation for Gordon and the following group also saw Brian Shaw complete the feat, allowing him to finish second with 30 points.The winner was again Jorn Eriksen and his form showed all the signs of the confidence displayed two days earlier.  The booby bevy went to Khun Wichai after one of his less impressive rounds and the week ended with golfers sharing a few refreshing beers in their Soi Buakhao based “clubhouse”, Rabbi’s Elephant Bar.Hopefully the energy of the recent typhoon series has now subsided and the group can get about the business of playing golf on good courses in dry conditions!last_img read more

Supporters Update – Donegal Road Diversion Lifted For Sunday

Food and trees for Africa

first_img14 May 2002Forget ‘I believe I can fly’. ‘Sustainable development’ is the new mantra to gyrate to as the World Summit approaches, and earnest environmentalists and other NGO-types are suddenly far hipper than any aspiring Pop Idols.Jeunesse Park, CEO of Food and Trees for Africa (FTFA), a dynamic and fast-growing NGO which promotes greening and food security through permaculture, notes with some amusement: “There’s a huge rush of interest in sustainable development and related issues.“Suddenly people are fascinated by what we do – from all levels of government to the private sector, international NGOs and the general public. Everyone is expressing the desire to plant a tree.’But Park hasn’t waited around for the limelight to catalyse her into action. What her fast-growing NGO has quietly accomplished these past 12 years could fill several books.“Everything we do,’ she says, “is about sustainable development’.FTFA, formerly known as Trees for Africa, has three key programmes: Trees for Homes, Eduplant, and the Urban Greening Foundation. A multitude of projects fall under each of these programmes.All over the country, thanks to the education and support programmes offered by FTFA, hundreds of people – from three-year-olds to school children to the sick and elderly – are hard at work planting, reaping, creating and selling their homegrown or recycled wares.‘A house is not a home without a tree’Trees for Homes, which espouses the view that “a house is not a home without a tree’, aims to improve the quality of life of the poor by providing plant material, environmental awareness and education for those living in low-cost housing developments.Although South Africa’s sprawling and dusty townships are a legacy of its apartheid past, the majority of its disadvantaged people continue to live in these poorly designed and impoverished urban and peri-urban housing settlements.Growing trees and other plants in the townships brightens the environment, prevents soil erosion, and provides wind breaks, as well as food, income and activities for many unemployed people.FTFA does far more than simply provide plants for greening. It spreads awareness about the importance of greening, and trains volunteers to become community-based educators on greening the environment themselves. They share their knowledge with neighbours, and soon the entire community is involved in the business of gardening.As part of its urban greening project in Kyalami, FTFA trained numerous volunteers to start their own gardens, and handed over 3 000 trees to 3 000 Kyalami residents on 4 May.PermacultureEduplant is an eight-year-old nationwide project which teaches schools about permaculture – a system of farming and gardening that combines animals, plants, buildings, local people and the landscape in way that recycles nutrients and waste, replicates nature as much as possible and generates more energy than it uses.Now hundreds of schools have started their own income-generating organic food gardens. Often the entire community gets involved, with unemployed parents helping out.Schools have come up with innovative plans to grow food, recycle waste and improve their school environments. Eduplant holds a competition every year for the best school permaculture projects.Urban greeningThe Urban Greening Foundation was established in response to a clamour of requests from local governments and communities to help with urban greening initiatives – from streets to homes to community food gardens.“We try to build capacity at both community and local government level’, says Park. When the link between these two is strong, the chances of a project becoming sustainable are far greater, she adds.To make greening a popular pastime, FTFA often creates “green heroes’ of prominent people like former President Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Whoopie Goldberg, all of whom have been invited to plant trees with communitiesThe sustainability of the SummitPark believes the World Summit is a wonderful opportunity for South Africa in general and Johannesburg in particular, whose citizens stand to benefit from the additional infrastructure and all the hype generated around development issues. <p. “The Summit is undoubtedly catalysing interest in sustainable development initiatives around the country,’ says Park.Hopefully lots of programmes and environmentally sound practices initiated around the Summit, like hotels recycling their organic waste, will continue long after the Summit is over, she adds.One such Summit-related activity, FTFA’s tree planting event during Arbour Week, which will see delegates planting trees along the Jukskei River in Alexandra, will reap rewards for many years to come.The plan, which is part of the Alexandra Renewal Project’s seven-year greening plan for the township, is to plant trees all the way along the river to Hartebeespoort Dam.Park is critical of the fact that bureaucracy and the high cost of engagement will prevent many ordinary people from participating in the Summit. “To have a presence there, you need money,’ she says.She also fears that environmental concerns are already being pushed aside by the broader financial interests of governments. “This Summit will be unique if it comes up with more than trade agreements. The environment is now at the bottom of the list of priorities, but in my view it’s the basis of everything.“Without a healthy environment we won’t have a healthy economy or political stability. The key to sustainable development is giving people capacity to grow their own food. It’s about natural resource use and management.’It is more important, she adds, to support the systems that poor people put in place to survive than to “pay consultants huge sums of money to come up with advanced programmes that exist only on paper’.

The Changing Face of the Digital Workstation

first_img“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” Albert EinsteinToday’s workstation can provide you with a magnificent digital canvas to create tomorrow …… today!With workstations powered by two Intel® Xeon® 5500 series processors, engineers have the opportunity to create, shape, test and modify products before they become real. Engineers can now design, visualize and simulate products from the conceptual design phase through the entire manufacturing process. This is done virtually before any investments are made in a prototype.“Any color—so long as it’s black.” Henry FordLike the automobile, the workstation has morphed into something much more than what it once was. It now has more capabilities and features than its predecessor and, if you allow it to, it can help you accelerate the pace of your innovation.Today’s workstation gives engineers a new tool that can be likened to a digital workbench. This tool is powered by two Intel Xeon 5500 series processors with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and Intel® Hyper Threading Technology to take advantage of the processor’s power and thermal headroom to enable increased performance of both multi-threaded and single-threaded workloads. Today’s workstation can host a suite of software applications from ISV’s like Autodesk, SolidWorks, PTC, Bentley and others to create and test their ideas. The pliers, hammer and nails found on a workbench in a garage or basement have now been replaced with digital tools that promise to accelerate innovations via a process known as digital prototyping. Its enablers include application tools like detailed CAD, CAE and PIM. Together they represent the new digital workbench—a powerful innovation tool you can use to bring your ideas forward faster than ever before.“I confess that in 1901 I said to my brother Orville that man would not fly for fifty years.” Wilbur WrightYou think all you need is an entry-level workstation with a single Intel® Xeon® processor. After all, you only do CAD—right?  You may be thinking like Wilbur Wright.Innovation in the workplace is paced by how well you can use technology to test and improve your ideas. As you begin to adopt modern workflows you may realize the dramatic impact that simulation-based engineering or digital prototyping can have on your product development cost and schedules.  You will soon realize that the cost of the second processor and additional memory necessary to support digital prototyping was far less expensive than the cost of multiple physical prototypes and the associated time to produce them. Instead of investigating hundreds of digital prototypes, you only have time to look at a single physical prototype and ask: What if I …?Those “what ifs” could have been played out on a dual-processor Intel Xeon processor 5500 series-based digital workbench faster, and your time and cost of physical prototypes could have been significantly reduced.Are you ready to adopt modern workflows and accelerate your innovation?last_img read more
