A legacy for the African rhino

A gold rhino sculpture costing R35 000; the proceeds from the sale of each sculpture are donated to WWF-SA and its rhino conservation work.(Images: Noel Ashton Wildlife Studio)MEDIA CONTACTS • Noel AshtonNoel Ashton Wildlife Studio+27 72 063 4676 Cadine PillayDespite the many attempts to curb rhino poaching and the dedicated activism from the public, the slaughter of these beasts continues, with the death toll for 2012 approaching 450 animals.This has not halted the efforts of South Africans to fight the poaching crisis, in any way they can.Now South African artist, scientist and conservationist Noel Ashton has sculpted a series of rhino sculptures titled Mapungubwe Revisited. The series is a limited edition, consisting of 12 gold and 100 bronze rhino castings, and is the artist’s way of honouring the magnificence of Africa’s wildlife heritage.In the past Ashton has initiated other conservation programmes for Africa’s wildlife, most of which he has dedicated to whales.“Throughout the years we have engaged in a range of conservation programmes by combining artworks, narratives and our commitment to the earth,” Ashton says.Mapungubwe RevisitedMapungubwe Revisited was inspired by the discovery of a small 152-millimetre long rhino made of pure gold, in the grave of the king of the ancient realm of Mapungubwe, situated in Limpopo province. The golden rhino was buried with the king over 800 years ago, showing that rhinos were revered by African royalty.“The artwork speaks through time, and as an artist I see its significance as a symbol of the rich cultural legacy of Africa,” says Ashton in an interview.The golden rhino, according to Ashton, embodies a deeper connection with, and reverence for this magnificent animal of Africa. It links all African people to the land through a sacred thread of belonging.“The golden rhino offers a signpost to something that we might have forgotten but fortunately not lost; it can remind us that the natural world around us is much more than a commodity, a space or a view, it is an intrinsic part of who we are and where we have come from, and each rhino killed or tract of land destroyed is another part of ourselves lost,” he says.By investing in a limited-edition sculpture of Mapungubwe Revisited, buyers will be contributing towards the conservation of the species. The gold and bronze sculptures cost R35 000 (US $4000) and R15 000 ($1700) respectively, and funds from the sale of each sculpture are donated towards the South African chapter of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-SA) and its rhino conservation work.Taking back our heritageAs illustrated by the Mapungubwe gold rhino, the animals have long been an object of value in African culture. South Africans are rightly proud of their rhino history and the critical role they played in the remarkable recovery of white rhino numbers over the last century. Today three out of every four rhinos alive, 75% of the world’s rhinos, are found in South Africa.“After being severely threatened in the earlier part of the 20th century, African conservationists have worked tirelessly over the past two decades to nurture faltering populations back to healthy and vibrantly growing numbers,” said WWF-SA CEO Morne du Plessis in a statement.In their continued commitment to the rhinos, the Shamwari hospitality group has produced a Celebrity Ambassador Rhino Calendar to help raise awareness for the plight of the rhinos, as well as much needed funds.The calendar was launched on 21 September in Camps Bay, Cape Town, and also has the support of the Wilderness Foundation and conservation veteran Dr Ian Player.“Since launching the calendar and celebrating World Rhino Day, 10 more rhinos have been slaughtered and time is running out for this living dinosaur,” says Tom Jäger, Shamwari’s group sales and marketing manager.Celebrities join the frontline Celebrities such as South African model Josie Borain, former Miss South Africa Bernelee Daniell, Glamour Magazine editor Pnina Fenster, television personality Katlego Maboe, comedian Irit Noble and Zimbabwean model Sam Pegg offered their time to the creation of the calendar.The photo shoot took place at Sanbona Wildlife Reserve outside Cape Town by renowned photographer Andrew Brown, who also donated his time to the cause.The calendars will at first be available for purchase at the Shamwari properties of Sanbona Wildlife Reserve near Cape Town, Shamwari Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape and Jock Safari Lodge in the Kruger National Park.The cost of the calendar is R150 ($17), and all proceeds will go to the Wilderness Foundation through the Shamwari Group’s Forever Wild Campaign, which has already during the course of 2012 raised just over R240 000 ($28 000) for rhino awareness and protection.“If we all stand together and create a unified response whilst educating this generation and future generations, including the poachers, this slaughter will come to an end,” said Shamwari GM Joe Cloete, in a statement.“We are proud to have created the calendar and to be able to also give guests an opportunity to spread the word and support the Wilderness Foundation in all their endeavours.”A perpetual reminderThe calendar is everlasting, making it reusable every year as it is not restricted to the day or month. Each month presents a different photo of a celebrity ambassador, and Shamwari game rangers, wildlife and properties alongside a relevant quote.As many of us spend most of our lives behind a desk, the Shamwari team thought a perpetual calendar would be practical, informative and useful.“During a brainstorm session about how we could help even more with the critical situation facing rhinos, we knew we wanted to do something that would not only raise awareness and funds regarding the plight of the rhino but something that could be an everyday reminder,” says Jäger.A selection of Shamwari photos were taken by IKY’s Photographic.The sponsors for this initiative include Camera Ready, Black Orchid, The Paper Shop, Paper Smith and Sons, the Sunshine Co, Grand Café and Room in Camps Bay and the Wilderness Foundation.last_img read more

How To: Annotate Images from Wikipedia

first_imgsteven walling Tags:#How To#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting You may not know it, but most of the images in Wikipedia are actually hosted on its sister project, Wikimedia Commons. If you find a favorite image on the encyclopedia that anyone can edit, click through and you’ll quickly find yourself at its original page at the Commons project. With over 4.9 million freely-licensed media files, it’s a treasure trove that supplies nearly all of the photos for Wikipedia. Now you can annotate images from Wikimedia Commons in a fashion very similar to Flickr. The big difference with the new feature is that annotations can be added by anyone, and no account is necessary. While they don’t show up directly in Wikipedia yet, a new version of the system that will appear in the free encyclopedia is under development.Anyone can currently add notes to images from Commons, and changes to them are patrolled for malicious content just like any text you might add to Wikipedia. If you’re familiar with adding notes to Flickr or any other photo sharing site, then this should be a no brainer for you. Once you find the image you want, either by clicking through from Wikipedia or searching Wikimedia Commons directly, just click the “add note” button underneath any image on its own page. Then type in your text and either preview or save it. In addition to simple text notes, you can include wiki markup to add links or for styling, and if your annotation fails then you can add it manually through editing the page’s code. The image annotation gadget is basically just some JavaScript written by a Wikimedia volunteer and made standard on the site. If you’re a regular user and you don’t like the boxes showing up on your images, then you can turn it off via your user preferences. The advantage to logging in to add notes is that a history of all your annotations will show up in your user contributions history. According to the project’s FAQ, a version will soon be available for use directly within Wikipedia.center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

Google Gets Ready to Challenge Apple’s iAds

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#advertising#Apple#Google#mobile#news#web What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … AdMob, the mobile advertising platform that was acquired by Google, just launched a new software development kit (SDK) for the iPad that will make it easier for developers to integrate AdMob/Google ads into their iPad apps. This is an extension of AdMob’s unified iPhone OS SDK. Currently, the iPad SDK supports text & tile, as well as image ads, but AdMob also highlighted that it will soon support HTML5 and allow developers to create more interactive ads.Interactive HTML5 Ads Coming SoonThe iPad SDK was already available as a beta for the last few months, but now that Google has officially acquired AdMob, the competition between the two companies has brought AdMob – which is already the largest ad network on the iPhone – into the middle of this rivalry. With iAds, Apple is trying to enter the market for interactive in-app ads written in HTML5 (instead of Flash), but Google is obviously not going to just stand by and wait for Apple to corner this lucrative advertising market. For now, AdMob is only showing a “sneak peek” of the “creative potential of iPad ads using HTML5,” but we wouldn’t be surprised if AdMob/Google unveiled a beta of this solution by the time the iPhone 4 OS arrives later this summer.

Panama Canal Sets Record Cargo Volume for FY 2018

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Panama Canal Authority The Panama Canal closed its 2018 fiscal year with a record tonnage of 442.1 million Panama Canal tons (PC/UMS), representing a 9.5 percent increase from the previous year.With this number, the Panama Canal surpasses the cargo projections of 429.4 million PC/UMS tons for FY 2018, as well as the 403.8 million PC/UMS tons registered in FY 2017.“The Panama Canal continues to exceed our expectations, reinforcing every day the importance of the waterway’s expansion and its impact on global maritime trade,” Jorge L. Quijano, Panama Canal Administrator, said.The increase was driven by the transit of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers, containerships, chemical tankers and vehicle carriers.The container segment continued to serve as the leading market segment for tonnage through the canal, accounting for 159 million PC/UMS tons of the total cargo, of which 112.6 million PC/UMS tons transited the expanded canal. Tankers, including LPG and LNG carriers, followed close with a total of 130.3 million PC/UMS tons.The third ranked segments included bulk carriers with 73.7 million PC/UMS tons, while vehicle carriers took fourth place with 49.5 million PC/UMS tons seen during the year.In terms of cargo tonnage, the main routes using the Panama Canal in FY 2018 were between Asia and the U.S. East Coast, the West Coast of South America and the U.S. East Coast, the West Coast of South America and Europe, the West Coast of Central America and the U.S. East Coast and intercoastal South America.Panama Canal said that the main users during the period were the U.S., China, Mexico, Chile and Japan, while some 62.8 percent of the total cargo transiting the canal had its origin or destination in the United States.last_img read more
