SA-born playwright wins an Oscar

first_img31 March 2003Cape Town-born playwright Ronald Harwood, who won an Oscar for his screenplay of the Holocaust movie The Pianist, may be a long way from home, but he credits South Africa for his success in the film industry.Harwood’s first Oscar win was not his first nomination. Harwood was first nominated for an Oscar in 1972 in the category of best original script for The Dresser, starring Albert Finney.Harwood left Cape Town at 17 to follow his dreams in London. However, this week his thoughts returned to his birthplace after he received the Oscar for best adapted screenplay.The Sunday Times reports that Harwood’s love for the theatre and films started when he was a child and his mother took him to the theatre in Cape Town. He became part of a theatre group while still at Sea Point Boys’ High, and won a scholarship to study drama in London.“I had a wonderful time in Cape Town. There was a company called the Brian Brooke Company, which staged plays in the Hofmeyer Hall. It was a weekly repertoire company and I went every week. I saw all the hits from London there.“I loved it and my mother loved the theatre and encouraged me to go. I had a wonderful teacher called Sybil Marx, now dead, who taught me and [acclaimed British actor] Nigel Hawthorne”, Harwood told Sunday Times.Harwood wrote the adapted screenplay for the film of Alan Paton’s novel, Cry the Beloved Country. Before that, he firmed his reputation in America with HBO’s Mandela, which starred Danny Glover and Alfre Woodard as Nelson and Winnie Mandela and was one of the pay TV service’s first original films.Harwood believes that the South African film industry has the potential to rise to the level of the Australian film industry.He also expressed astonishment at the small number of films made about the apartheid era, and feels that more films about this era need to make it onto the big screen.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

South African delegation in Qatar to promote tourism, trade and investment

first_imgDubbed NEXT STOP SOUTH AFRICA campaign, the delegation will consist of senior officials from the departments of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, Trade and Industry and will be collaborating with the South African Foreign Mission in Saudi Arabia, while South African Airways would sponsor certain aspects of travel and promotions. They will be accompanied by members of the International Marketing Council of South Africa (IMC), a private sector organization responsible for the territory’s country branding initiative.The visit confirms the growing importance of the Gulf Region for South African business and investment and the strength of bilateral relations with key countries in the region.Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1994 both President Thabo Mbeki and former President Nelson Mandela have made official visits to Doha. The Emir of Qatar paid a state visit to South Africa in May 2002, which led to the opening of embassies in the respective countries.The South African delegation will be in the Gulf Region from 13 to 23 February during which time the delegation will also visit Saudi Arabia, Oman and both Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.On the agenda are meetings and discussions with local business communities as well as workshops on tourism, trade and investment opportunities in South Africa.These events would also be utilized to allay fears about the state of crime in the country and elaborate on strategies championed by government’s security establishments that are successfully combating crime.“The Middle East is becoming an important trade zone for South Africa. It holds great potential for South Africa as an export market, and serves as a potential strategic source of foreign direct investment. Bilateral trade with the Middle East has grown significantly since 1994. Because of South Africa’s energy imports, it has a large trade deficit with the region” says Ms Bulelwa Seti, Chief Director for Tourism Support at the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, who will be leading the delegation.The region also has profound cultural and religious resonance with millions of South Africans who adhere to Islam. The cultural, religious, historical and strategic affinity between this region and northern part of Africa itself makes it important in the context of Africa’s renewal and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).South African exports to Qatar had a total value of (South African Rand) 124 million in 2006 and consisted mainly of base metals, chemicals and machinery. Over the same period imports from Qatar totaled just over R1 billion – dominated by the chemical sector and plastics.South Africa and Qatar are also involved in a joint US $ 1 billion fuel grade methanol project. The plant will begin production in 2008 of 12,000 to 15,000 metric tons per day of fuel grade methanol for power generation.“There has been significant tourism investments flowing into South Africa from Middle East investors on the acquisition of hospitality properties while there are significant new opportunities opening up in the leisure and hospitality industries as well as in the construction and engineering sectors” says Patience Molokoza, Director, International Tourism Relations at the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism.The 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup will focus global attention on South Africa as a preferred destination for tourism, trade and investment. Thus the delegation will inform the Saudi business community and government about new opportunities opening up in South Africa and reaffirm the fact that the country is an entry point into a large regional market of more than 180 million people in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.The ASGISA initiative (Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative) focuses on South Africa’s competitive edge in a number of key industries such as tourism, business process outsourcing, international call-centres, information and communication technology, agribusiness and synthetic fuels.South Africa is currently in the early stage of a period significant economic growth and expansion. Thus this mission would seek to encourage investors from Saudi Arabia to grasp the investment opportunities that are currently available to them that will enable them to reap the benefits in the years to come.This visit to the Gulf will be the third trade mission organised and supported by the IMC. This follows very successful missions to North America in 2004 and to Europe and the United Kingdom in 2005.Issued by Meropa Communications for the Brand South Africa Mission in the Gulf Region, 13-23 February 2007.last_img read more

Shining stars

first_imgWhat is it about Gujarati women that makes the nation fall in love with them? The Indian television industry has been witnessing an invasion of young damsels from Gujarat for quite some time. But with new faces like Prachi Desai, Apara Mehta, Disha Vakani and Sanjeeda Sheikh winning top roles, they are once again in the news. Name a channel and you have a Gujarati pretty young thing staring back at you. What makes them so irrestistible? Surely, not just the proximity to Mumbai and the ever-burgeoning channels of opportunities?The trend, in a way, started with actor Ronit Roy-who began his journey from the small screen and in a way epitomised the dream of many budding Gujarati stars when he won a whole range of awards- Star Screen, Zee Cine and the Filmfare awards for his role in the movie, Udaan. Following in his footsteps, today many PYTs in the 19-25 year age bracket from Gujarat are making their presence felt on the soaps aired on various channels like Colors, Sab TV, ZEE, Imagine, etc. Here’s an initmate chat with some of the best-known eyecandies from the state.Aashka GoradiaAfter her studies in Ahmedabad, she was freelancing as a translator for marketing companies when she got a break in a TV comedy show, Akting, Akting about seven years ago. “I happened to meet some people who recommended that I audition for TV shows and got me a part in the show. This was followed by Achanak – 37 Saal Baad, a supernatural thriller on Sony TV.” She later joined the cast of Bhabhi on Star Plus. Her big break was the role of Kumud in Kkusum.. Ek Aam Ladki Ki Kahani, a popular daily Indian television drama produced by Ekta Kapoor of Balaji Telefilms and telecasted on Sony.”Playing the role of KKusum’s daughter Kumud was exciting. It was certainly the biggest break I could have planned for, and I owe it to Ekta Kapoor,” she says adding, “her conviction that I was suitable for the role gave me the chance to play a character that was so pivotal to the plot. Since then Aashka played Arpita in Sinndoor Tere Naam Ka, Gayatri in Kahiin To Hoga of Star Plus, Nainia in the critically acclaimed serial Virrudh and Saniya in Mere Apne.She has also been part of reality shows and talent hunt shows. “But, so far the character of Kumud remains the highlight of my career.” In the plot of Kkusum, Kumud was the lead role – she is the daughter brought up for 18 years by Kkusum, a single mother after leaving her husband and has to struggle to save her marriage against her sister Kali.Currently, Aashka is playing Kalavati, a character with negative shades in Laagi Tujhse Lagan which is telecast on Colors channel. Kalavati is the sister of Dutta, the main male lead. She pretends to care for her brother as to get property which Kalavari is aware Dutta will inherit of but he is not. What is her big dream? “I am taking things as they come,” she says.Esha KansaraEsha Kansara studied at Hiramani School in Ahmedabad before leaving for Mumbai to study at the Mithibhai College which has many actors on its alumni list. “I was always keen on acting and dancing. So, I learnt Bharatnatyam for seven years in Ahmedabad. I realised that to make it big as an actress, I had to move to Mumbai with its theatre scene, film industry and television industry. I then decided to study commerce in Mithibhai College,” says Esha adding, “I was part of the drama team there which helped me a great deal in my career later.” She then got an opportunity to audition for Mukti Bandhan, an adaptation of Harikishan Mehta’s popular novel Mukti Bandhan by Vipul Mehta. Recalling the experience, she says, “While I auditioned for one of the smaller roles, I was liked so much that I was signed up for the major role of the ambitious woman Devki.” Her character is considered to be a competitor to IM Virani, the protagonist whose extraordinary sense of business has seen him rise from a modest background to become the fourth biggest industrialist of India in the serial. Even as she enjoys following her passion, Esha is also pursuing her second year in commerce at the college. She says, “I could not have dreamt of a better debut. I play one of the most important characters in the soap and that too one of a strong, positive woman respected in business circles.” she says. She adds that she can identify with the character, a contemporary woman with aspirations but at the same time has her roots firmly in place. Having got her big break with Mukti Bandhan, Esha is hoping to make it big in acting with many more TV series.Rashmi DesaiRashmi Desai’s family is from Vapi but she has spent much of her life in Mumbai. “I had never thought of acting as a career choice. I have a great wanderlust and was attracted to a career in airlines,” she says adding, “I did a modeling assignment for a hair oil brand which happened by chance while I was in school and my face appeared on the bottles.” Dancing is her passion. She has learnt Bharatnatyam and Kathak. Later on, she also did an album called Ye Pal. Rashmi got her first break on television in the mythological serial Raavan aired on Zee TV in which she played the teenaged Mandodari. “I come from a very educated family and my grandmother advised me not to give up my studies for an unpredictable career in the show business so I continued my studies in travels and tourism.” She entered regional cinema and worked in Bhojpuri films like Balma Bada Naadan, Kab Hoi Gawana Hamaar, Mai re Kar De Bedai Hamaar and Bambai Ki Laila Chapra Ka Chaila. “I signed up for Star One’s Pari Hoon Main, produced by B.R. Films in which I played a double role in 2008.” The story of the film revolves round the dual characters of Nikki Srivastav and Pari Rai Chaudary and showed how their uncanny resemblance causes turmoil in their lives. Pari was an arrogant, elegant and shorttempered character while Nikki was a simple and down to earth rural girl. “It was challenging to play both roles,” she adds. In the same period, she played Dr Meher Datta in Meet Mila De Rabba aired on Sony TV and after that she played Mona in Ssshhhh…Phir Koi Hai on Star One.”An exciting role is that of Tapasya Thakur in Uttaran, one of the most watched dramas on Colors and ranks among the most popular TV programmes.” The role of Tapu as the character is called is actually Desai’s main calling card today. She also won the Indian Television Academy award for best actress among other awards. “I never dreamt of being a star or even an actor but now I am really happy with this career,” she says adding, “It gives me the opportunity to travel, shop, be adventurous, and at the same time have enough time for my family between shooting schedules.” Everything has fallen in place for this young lady. So what would be that one thing that she wants to do? “I would like to act in Gujarati theatre one day.”Binny SharmaBinny Sharma from Ahmedabad was always fond of dancing. “While I loved dancing, and had the talent for it, I could not attend any serious courses as my father was in the textile business, kept shifting to different locations during my childhood for work,” she says. “However I did pretty well at everything from dance to athletics. I represented my school and college in sports. My parents encouraged me to take up everything possible, from studying to dancing and sports.” Her confidence in her dancing skills led to her auditioning for dance reality shows in Ahmedabad, Vadodara and Mumbai.”Though I had no formal training and had just done a short course in hip hop, I have a passion for dancing and learning new styles. I love Hip hop, locking and popping, and stunt dancing, but can also do semiclassical, krumping and B boying,” she says, admitting, “I auditioned for a dance show and was not selected. This taught me an important lesson -hard work, dedication and practice are necessary to back up talent. I also started watching dances on TV, You-Tube, and internet for ideas. The efforts bore fruit when I got selected for Dance India Dance (DID), the dance-based reality show, choreographed by some of India’s top choreographers and I got the big ticket for DID which airs on ZEE TV.”During the show, she was offered Sanjog Se Bani Sangini. “This is an Indian television series based on the love story of Gauri and Rudra and how these two people complete each other. The series premiered on Zee TV in 2010. I play the part of Gauri, a gentle and modest, yet sensible, intelligent, brave and practical character.I’m happy that people started recognising me as a good dancer with DID and now as an actor. I am concentrating now on my acting and dancing. I also completed my first year masters in commerce in Gujarat University and plan to get back to pursuing my post-graduation soon.”Aashka GoradiaGujarat connection: I am an Ahmedabad girl.

Dravid falls prey to debatable umpiring on the current England tour

first_imgRahul Dravid continues to be at the receiving end of controvesial decisions by the  umpires on the current England tour as he was ruled out caught behind on Saturday, despite ‘Hot Spot’ not detecting an edge off his bat. For the third time in this tour that Dravid has fallen to a debatable decision as he was given out twice in the preceding Test series in controversial fashion. However, snicko-meter, which is not part of the UDRS, later suggested that there was a contact between the ball and the bat. Saturday’s decision yet again brought technological shortcomings to the fore under the UDRS system. England paceman Stuart Broad appealed for a catch behind the wicket off his own bowling in the fourth ball of the 18th over but umpire Billy Doctrove ruled not out.Broad opted for a review straight away.Third umpire Marais Erasmus from South Africa took help of ‘Hot Spot’ but even after several replays, the edge could not be established, though a sound was definitely detected.However, much to the astonishment of the fans and the batsman, Erasmus ruled Dravid out. In the third Test, Dravid was ruled caught behind off James Anderson in India’s second innings when his bat actually had hit the shoelace and he hadn’t edged the ball. Then in the fourth Test, he was given out caught behind in India’s second innings. Dravid was ruled not out by the umpire but given out for 13 after referral by England though the snicko-meter apparently showed that there was no contact between the ball and the bat before it landed into home side wicketkeeper Matt Prior’s gloves. Debates and discussions have already started on the decision. Cricketer Aakash Chopra tweeted, “The most reliable tool for DRS is proving the least trustworthy. But I’m more baffled by the quality of umpiring.” “How can d third umpire overturn the on-field umpire’s decision without conclusive evidence to suggest d opposite,” he added.advertisementlast_img read more

After Lok Sabha poll results, Congress to see overhaul of AICC

first_imgNew Delhi: The May 23 is going to be very crucial for the Congress and its cadres as the results of the Lok Sabha election 2019 would play a decisive role in Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s total reshuffle plan of All India Congress Committee (AICC).According to party insiders, there would be a total overhauling of the AICC office-bearers after the Lok Sabha elections. “It’s not yet clear that the results of Lok Sabha elections would go in favour of Congress or not, but it’s very imminent that the AICC get a major reshuffle soon after the announcement of poll results. The Congress president has expressed his willingness to revamp the party’s committees by putting more responsibilities on the shoulders of leaders of the young generation,” a senior party leader told Millennium Post.

Baseball Is Overrun By Adam Dunns

Giancarlo StantonMarlins60841596.8 With baseballs flying out of big-league parks at an unprecedented rate — and batters getting rung up at a similarly historic clip — it’s a safe bet that Dunn’s brand of baseball is here to stay, at least for the time being. That means we’ll get to see more of both the highs and lows that come when a player swings as hard as he can and hopes for the best.As for Dunn’s view of the generation of hitters he helped spawn? In his interview with Crasnick, even Dunn himself was skeptical of an entire lineup of batters who hit like he did.“Everything evolves, and this is the era we’re in,” he said. “People see if you hit homers and drive in a lot of runs, you’re going to get where you need to get financially. Does it help a team if you have a couple of those guys? Yeah. But if you have nine of them, it’s going to be tough.” The Adam Dunn Club, class of 2017MLB hitters on pace for at least 25 home runs, 70 walks and 150 strikeouts in 2017, as of Aug. 20 Khris DavisAthletics43742121.9 Sources: FanGraphs, Baseball-Reference.com Joey GalloRangers46762003.8 Domingo SantanaBrewers26751802.1 Eric ThamesBrewers35821681.8 Justin UptonTigers34711735.9 Some of these players count among baseball’s very best. Despite his recent slump,2Don’t say we didn’t warn you! New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge — whose 6-foot-7 frame brings to mind a right-handed version of the 6-foot-6 Dunn at the plate — ranks fourth this season in wins above replacement (WAR)3Using an average of Baseball-Reference.com and FanGraphs.com versions of the metric. and is still in the American League MVP conversation. Likewise, Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt and Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton are probably the front-runners for MVP honors in the National League — each projects to finish with around 150 whiffs, a minor footnote in their otherwise sparkling stat lines.Simply striking out a ton doesn’t automatically disqualify a player from being considered great anymore, as opposed to in the olden days when there was a stigma attached to strikeout kings. But some hitters can still overdo it; in fact, there are some legitimately bad ballplayers in the Adam Dunn Club these days. A year after Milwaukee’s Chris Carter smashed 41 home runs while playing what was generally agreed to be mediocre baseball,4As if to confirm this, Carter promptly got himself designated for assignment by the Yankees twice in two weeks this season. five of the 14 players tracking for membership in the club are also on pace for fewer than 2.0 WAR, which is generally the benchmark for a worthwhile major-league starter. One — Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays — is headed for a 26-homer, 91-walk season that will also likely be below the replacement level, quite possibly earning him the worst Dunn Club season in history. (And this is to say nothing of the further proliferation of Dunn-“lite” players such as Milwaukee’s Keon Broxton, for example, who check off the home run and strikeout boxes but don’t even draw enough walks to join the club.) When Adam Dunn came to the plate, he would pretty much always do one of three things: He would strike out; he would walk; or he would hit a baseball some 400-odd feet. With his propensity to produce these so-called “three true outcomes” — the three types of plays in which fielders play no role — the former Cincinnati Reds outfielder known as “Big Donkey” was the poster boy for a new generation of batters who swung for the fences and didn’t mind a strikeout or two (hundred).But he didn’t aim to be at the forefront of one of baseball’s most pervasive 21st-century trends.“You would think I would have gotten used to striking out and sucking. It devastated me every single time,” Dunn told ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick in July. “At the time, I didn’t really pay attention to [strikeouts, walks and home runs]. I never looked at myself as that low-batting-average guy, but I kind of morphed into it. I always thought one day I would wake up and the old Adam would be back and we would roll.”Whether he meant to be or not, Dunn was always a harbinger of where the modern ballplayer was headed. And for better or worse, today’s game is filled with more Adam Dunns than ever before.In 2002, Dunn’s first full season in the big leagues, only three other players — Derrek Lee, Mike Cameron and Pat Burrell — joined Dunn with at least 25 home runs, 70 walks and 150 strikeouts. (Dunn went on to meet those thresholds nine more times, easily giving him the all-time mark for that kind of season.) But this season, an MLB-record 14 hitters are on track to meet those criteria. The kind of player who was once an oddity now has a place in nearly half of the league’s lineups.Dunn wasn’t the first hitter to specialize in excluding fielders from the action. Washington Senators outfielder Don Lock became the 25/70/150 club’s first member in 1963, and the Giants’ Bobby Bonds hit those marks in back-to-back seasons in 1969 and 1970. From then on, there was typically at least one Dunn-style slugger in the majors, and a variety of guys earned the label, including Greg Luzinski, Dave Kingman and Rob Deer.1All numbers prorated to a 162-game season. But their approach was also seen as a curiosity at best — and a liability at worst. “[Kingman] is regarded by many as one of baseball’s bad jokes, a flashy player but ultimately a loser,” Jonah Keri wrote in “Baseball Between The Numbers.”By the time Dunn hit the scene, however, the sabermetric movement was gaining popularity, and strikeouts were becoming more acceptable, as long as players offset them with power and patience. Likewise, teams were beginning to seek out hard-throwing pitchers with high K rates, creating a perfect storm of aligned incentives that helped lead to today’s three true outcomes-heavy game. So, from Dunn and a handful of others at the dawn of the 2000s, the number of hitters who take his approach — we’ll call guys who hit those 25/70/150 benchmarks members of the Adam Dunn Club — has only grown in recent seasons: Jake LambDiamondbacks35891632.9 Steven Souza Jr.Rays33841844.8 Paul GoldschmidtDiamondbacks381051507.2 Jose BautistaBlue Jays2691166-0.8 PRORATED THROUGH 162 GAMES Mark ReynoldsRockies34761791.3 PLAYERTEAMHOME RUNSWALKSSTRIKEOUTSWAR Wil MyersPadres31711891.1 Miguel SanoTwins37722263.4 Aaron JudgeYankees491192207.3 read more
