School makes history with blue plaque award

first_img Sigi Howes, the principal of the Centre for Conservation Education, addresses pupils and guests at the unveiling ceremony of Bonteheuwel High Schools blue plaque status. Bonteheuwel High Schools Young Historians group performed a song in celebration of their schools blue plaque status. Bonteheuwel High School became the 16th school in the province to receive the blue heritage plaque for the legacy left behind by Ashley Kriel – a former pupil and slain Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) commander.The school’s blue plaque status was revealed at an unveiling ceremony at Bonteheuwel High on Tuesday November 20. A blue plaque means an institution or building is being recognised as a heritage site. It is recognised all over the world. The Centre for Conservation Education and the Simon van der Stel Foundation are partners in the blue plaque project.Addressing the audience at the ceremony, Sigi Howes, the principal of the Centre for Conservation Education, said: “What the blue plaque tells us that this is an important site. It is a heritage marker and alerts one that something important happened here. “Ashley Kriel fought for the values he believed in. It does not mean that he is the only one at Bonteheuwel High that did something great. Blue plaques were awarded to buildings for a variety of reasons, but no schools had this before. “Four years ago, the pilot was started with the Simon van der Stel Foundation so that schools can apply. The school has to motivate why they deserve the blue plaque status when they apply. A jury then decides. One school every year is awarded the blue plaque status for free and four others annually can pay for it. “There are four categories, which include the age of the school (it must be at least 125 years old), be an architecturally significant building, offer exceptional service to the community and surviving under difficult circumstances, and have a past pupil or teacher who excelled themselves.”Principal Nicola Pather was so overjoyed, that she announced that the Ashley Kriel Development Centre would be coming to Bonteheuwel next year. It is currently based at the College of Cape Town in Crawford.Head boy Nehemiah Cassiem challenged his peers to “take the baton left by people like Ashley Kriel and run with it”.“This is our chance to be a catalyst for change,” he added.

Fundraiser finances Food For the Poor’s bee farms in Jamaica

first_imgJamaica has a greater advantage over countries with cooler climates, because its tropical temperatures are conducive for year-round honey production and harvesting. Donors Buzzing to Build Bee Farms in Jamaica: FlaMingle Event Includes Honey Tasting from Bee Farms Built by Food For The Poor DonorsFood for the PoorBees are an important part of the eco-system. They pollinate plants and provide honey, which can supply a poor family in developing countries with important nutrition and a potential source of income.At Food For The Poor’s first FlaMingle event in Fort Lauderdale this month, guests can help establish bee farms and provide training and equipment for beekeepers in impoverished communities across Jamaica.Thursday, Nov 30FlaMingle will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30 at the Grateful Palate, 3003 NE 32nd Ave., Fort Lauderdale, with honey-infused hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, live entertainment, a 26raffle and a silent auction with items from Jamaica and the Caribbean.Guests also will be able to sample honey produced by bee farms in Jamaica established with the help of Food For The Poor’s generous donors.Establishing bee farms in JamaicaProceeds will focus on establishing bee farms in Jamaica. Each bee farm will be equipped with hives, a smoker, veil and gloves, a screened tent and other basic tools. Bee farming in Jamaica is a vibrantly expanding industry and honey can be easily sold for a profit. Farmers can sell their honey for baking, as a sweetening agent or for medicinal purposes. Jamaica has a greater advantage over countries with cooler climates, because its tropical temperatures are conducive for year-round honey production and harvesting. And due to the indigenous herbs and flowers of Jamaica, the honey produced is very unique and distinct from honey produced elsewhere in the world.For a poor family without access to refrigeration, honey is a blessing because of its long shelf life. And with the alarming trend of bee populations being decimated around the world, healthy beekeeping projects are all the more important.Empower the poor to help themselves“One of the best ways to help the poor is to empower them to help themselves,” said Food For The Poor Executive Director Angel Aloma. “To help break the cycle of poverty, Food For The Poor has developed long-term, sustainable solutions like beekeeping to improve the economic situations of poor communities.”Standpoint Research is a presenting sponsor for FlaMingle.Donor and stock researcher Ronnie Moas, founder of Standpoint Research, has a Top Ten ranking for his stock picking since 2008 versus more than 4,000 professionals in his industry. Moas now covers digital currencies as well.Moas, who has traveled to Haiti with the charity, has helped transform the lives of destitute families through Food For The Poor.“FlaMingle will be a very nice evening to support a fantastic cause,” Moas said. “Food For The Poor will take the proceeds to set up beehives in the poorest communities in Jamaica and educate the local population on how to monetize that via the honey market.”Other sponsors include Victoria Mutual Building Society of Fort Lauderdale, Downtown Photo and Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey.Tickets for FlaMingle are $75.The evening will include specialty cocktails provided by Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey, plus a full bar.last_img read more

This makes them a preferred option for any telecoms operator looking for early deployment of commercial 5G services.The MS2850A has the same or better dynamic range and amplitude/phase flatness as higher-end models but at a better cost-performance point, assuring both high-precision signal analysis and higher finished product quality at a lower instrument cost. To help facilitate early deployment of 5G services while meeting demands for high-level measurement technologies at lower instrument costs, Anritsu has developed the announced product release to improve the quality of 5G NR equipment while cutting costs. Anritsu has introduced five new 5G measurement software options for its MS2850A Signal Analyzer. The new software options are compliant with the 3GPP 5G standards (5G NR) and used for measuring the RF Tx characteristics of next-generation 5G base stations and mobile terminals.The five new measurement software options are:last_img read more
