first_img8 February 2006Foreign tourists from Europe and Asia will no longer have to struggle with language barriers when visiting Mpumalanga.Thirty-three black local tour guides have been trained to speak French, and will next be learning Chinese, German and Portuguese.“Research found that the majority of our tourists speak French and it is more accommodating if their hosts speak a familiar language,” said spokesperson for the province’s department of economic development and planning, Smanga Shongwe.He said only black registered tour guides had been selected for the course and that they all came from the Kruger National Park.“We only chose black guides because we want to increase the role played by black tour guides in the tourism industry,” he explained.Alliance Française teachers who gave lessons in White River and Secunda taught the guides basic French. The guides attended 80 hours of training during November last year.Alliance Française, the world’s largest French teaching centre, was established in 1883 in Paris, France.It has over 1 000 schools in 134 countries, serving over 350 000 students.The National Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism and the French Embassy are co-funding the French teaching programme for tour guides in South Africa.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Pulwama attack Pakistan says no terror camps exist on 22 locations shared

first_imgIslamabad: Pakistan on Thursday said it has examined 22 “pin locations” shared by India but found no terror camps and claimed that there are no links to nail 54 people detained in connection with the Pulwama terror attack as it shared the “preliminary findings” with New Delhi. Pakistan is willing to allow visits, on request, to these locations, the Foreign Office (FO) said in a statement. “While 54 detained individuals are being investigated, no details linking them to Pulwama have been found so far,” it said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details “Similarly, the 22 pin locations shared by India have been examined. No such camps exist. Pakistan is willing to allow visits, on request, to these locations,” the FO said. It said that in consistent with its commitment to cooperate, Pakistan on Wednesday shared “preliminary findings” of its investigations with India along with a set of questions. “Subsequently, the diplomatic corps in Islamabad was briefed as well,” the FO said. India handed over the dossier to the Acting High Commissioner of Pakistan in New Delhi on February 27 with specific details of Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM)’s complicity in the Pulwama attack that killed 40 CRPF personnel on February 14 and the presence of JeM terror camps and its leadership in Pakistan. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday The FO said soon after receiving the dossier, Pakistan constituted an investigation team, detained a number of people for investigation and initiated work on the technical aspects of social media content, a main basis of the Indian documents. The Indian dossier contains 91 pages and six parts, out of which only part two and three pertain to the Pulwama attack, it said. “Other parts are generalised allegations. Pakistan is focusing on those parts which relate to Pulwama incident,” it said. The FO claimed that during the course of investigations, all aspects of the information provided by India have been thoroughly examined including the “confessional” video of Adil Dar, “claim” of responsibility for the attack, Whatsapp and Telegram numbers used to share videos and messages in support of the Pulwama attack, list of 90 individuals suspected of belonging to a proscribed organisation and 22 pin locations of alleged training camps. Service Providers have been requested for data including relevant details of activities and contacts of the GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) number provided by India, it said. A request for assistance from Whatsapp has also been made to the US government, it said, adding that the said additional information and documents from India would be essential to continue the process of investigations. “Pakistan remains committed to taking this process to its logical conclusion,” the FO added. Tensions between India and Pakistan escalated after the suicide bomber of JeM killed 40 CRPF personnel in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14. India launched a counter-terror operation against a JeM training camp in Balakot. The next day, Pakistan Air Force retaliated and downed a MiG-21 in an aerial combat and captured its pilot, who was handed over to India on March 1.last_img read more

No model code violation by Niti Aayog in sharing dist level data

first_imgNew Delhi: The Election Commission has found no violation of the poll code in Niti Aayog sharing data with the prime minister’s office on places where PM Narendra Modi was set to campaign for the Lok Sabha elections. Senior Deputy Election Commissioner Sandeep Saxena said the commission has disposed off the complaint as the prime minister is exempted from the provision that bars ministers from combining official visits with campaigning. The exemption to the prime minister was given in October, 2014. “It was not a one time exemption but a standing instruction,” Saxena told reporters here. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghSources later said, the Niti Aayog had not shared any political data but district-level data with the prime minister’s office (PMO). The EC had written to Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant on May 4 flagging the allegations made by the Congress and the AAP. Asking Kant to furnish the reply “immediately”, the EC had referred to the allegations that the Niti Aayog has asked officers in various states and Union territories to provide to the PMO write ups about destinations of the prime minister’s campaign. The EC also responded to a question on the Congress’s fresh complaint against information allegedly sought by an officer of the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade from the Commerce Ministry on Start Up India, claiming that it was meant to be used for BJP’s manifesto.last_img read more

Defense weather dampen Ohio State offenses performance during Saturday scrimmage

When it rains, it pours, and Saturday’s dreary scrimmage proved true figuratively and literally for the Ohio State offense, which failed to score a single touchdown. The defense won the scrimmage, 74-62, (unofficially), before heavy rain and lightning caused an abrupt finish. With no completions and only two first downs in the first seven possessions, the offense could never get going against an inspired Buckeyes defense. The offense gave the ball away four times and mustered only 171 yards on 17 possessions. Leading the way for the defense was sophomore defensive tackle Jonathan Hankins, who had a tackle for loss, a sack and numerous stops on third-and-short, which the offense failed to convert four times. The scrimmage began with kick returns. Sophomore running back Jaamal Berry electrified the crowd with a 95-yard return for a touchdown up the right sideline. Jordan Hall also took a kick back to the 40 and Chris Fields had a return to the 47-yard line. When the offense took the field, it began backed up against its own goal line. It went three-and-out under senior quarterback Joe Bauserman, thanks in part to great pass defense from junior cornerback Travis Howard, who turned in yet another stellar performance. The next offensive set, Jaamal Berry rumbled for nine yards and had a huge collision with sophomore safety Jamie Wood. Wood left the game shortly after and did not return, saying his shoulder “popped out.” Redshirt freshman Taylor Graham continued to put the ball on the money, but numerous drops (five, unofficially, on Graham throws) bogged his stats down to 3-for-10 for 27 yards. Braxton Miller, the highly touted freshman quarterback, was 2-for-4 for 22 yards. The other quarterbacks fared no better, with sophomore Kenny Guiton going 3-for-7 for 31 yards with one interception, and Joe Bauserman hitting 1-for-4 for 11 yards, with one interception. Both interceptions were recorded by redshirt freshman cornerback Bradley Roby, both going through the hands of Corey “Philly” Brown and Jaamal Berry to reach Roby. The offense did not find any more luck on the ground. The leading rusher was redshirt freshman Roderick Smith, with six carries for 30 of the offense’s 80 total yards rushing. The entire defense looked stout, but freshman safety Jeremy Cash might have had the most impressive day. The Florida product had a number of tackles, including a big hit that jarred the ball loose from Verlon Reed, and was recovered by Dorian Bell. Cash also looked impressive in pass coverage, breaking up several passes. There were many hits that drew hoots and hollers from the crowd that braved the weather. Senior Florida State transfer Dionte Allen unloaded on Berry from his cornerback position, and sophomore defensive end Melvin Fellows drilled Guiton on a pass rush. Players out with injuries were Terrelle Pryor (he threw some in sweats), Donnie Evege (out for season), Zach Domicone (was seen icing his calf), Tyler Moeller (in full pads), Corey “Pittsburgh” Brown (in sweats) and CJ Barnett (in full pads). read more
