Beathard and backup Nick Mullens.“He’s got a strong arm. He’s a very tough player. Hangs in that pocket and plays position well,” Coach Kyle Shanahan said in a conference call. “I was a fan of him coming out of college. He’s gotten to play in a number of NFL games so he’s …last_img read more

Bread bags bring big benefits

first_imgDaycare runners enjoy prize giving day. (Image: BizCommunity) Sasko, the bakery, launched the Siyasizana Day-care Project for day cares in Tembisa, in Gauteng in late September 2015 – and the pre-school centres are already reaping the rewards.When the project was launched, there was a simple request made of day cares: collect used Sasko bread bags that would otherwise be thrown away, and redeem them for items such as mattresses, backpacks, basins, carpets, chairs and even fridges or stoves.Siyasizana is isiZulu for “we are helping each other”. The project mobilised Tembisa residents to work together to support of their local day cares by all collecting their plastic bags. In total, 300 000 bread bags were collected, exceeding the expectations of all involved.“We looked at the number of bread bags being discarded and the needs of the day cares in Tembisa,” Riaz Badroodeen, the brand manager of Sasko Bread, told SA Goodnews. “By collecting these bags to recycle, we are able to assist the mamas with the basic needs to make their day care environments more comfortable, ultimately benefiting the children in their care.“Collecting bags is a small gesture, with a large impact. With a tidy sum of 300 000 bags, participating day cares will now be able to refrigerate food, prepare cooked meals, provide blankets to keep children warm, and set up tables and chairs during activity and meal times.”THE PROJECT IS ON-GOINGThe success of the project now means it will be rolled out in other parts of the country.“Based on the success of the programme in Tembisa, we plan on rolling out the Sasko Siyasizana Day-care Project in other parts of South Africa. As the programme grows, we’ll continue to look at the needs of the participating day cares and how Sasko can assist,” Badroodeen said.Jane Mokgonyana of Tender Care Day Care was the ultimate winner after collecting 20 000 of the 300 000 packets. Runner-up Matema Mashilo from Bophelong Day Care collected 10 050 bags and was closely followed by Nanini Day Care, where Nomthandazo Mkhondwana collected a total of 9 550 bags.Seven other day cares in Tembisa also won something for their contribution to the project.Sasko Siyasizana Day-care Project is an ongoing programme hosted and implemented by Sasko Bread.

Planes, Parliament & Roadside Magic: The iPad is Everywhere

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Long gone are the days where magicians would invite viewers to participate in a global magic trick on their TV sets – the iPad is the new magicians friend, it seems. Online video sharing sites like YouTube have created a place for talented street magicians like David Blaine to share their amazing videos with the world. Perhaps the magician seen in this video will adopt his trick of pulling a sandwich out of a print advertisement for the iPad.Flying High With the iPadKim Heras of The Next Web reported today that budget airline Jetstar would be renting iPads to flyers aboard trips longer than 90 minutes. The devices, which can be rented for $10, will come preloaded with books, movies, TV shows and games for the passengers to enjoy while soaring at 30,000 feet. Not only is this an incentive for travelers to pick Jetstar, but it is great marketing for Apple which can put a device in your hand for a limited amount of time – just enough, perhaps, to convince you to buy one.Bluebox, the U.K.-based company providing the iPad service for Jetstar, should be rolling this out to other airlines in the near future, says Heras. Of course, this service would be greatly bolstered by the proliferation of in-flight WiFi, which is slowly migrating across airlines in the U.S. and internationally. Heras hits the nail on the head, however, stating that the real killer app is allowing passengers to stream the entertainment features straight to their own devices without the rental.Other iPad SightingsIt’s clear that the iPad has quickly become a iconic representation of cutting edge technology and wealthy early adopter geek toy. If you have other great examples of the iPad being used in new and interesting ways, send them our way or post a comment below.

Tags:#Apple#web Related Posts center_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… As announced yesterday, Apple has sold 2 million iPads in its first 2 months of production. With that many iPads out in the world (and mostly in the U.S.), it’s no surprise that iPads are popping up everywhere. From the device’s first celebrity appearance with Stephen Colbert on the Colbert Report to being spotted in the lap of Poker pro Andy Bloch at the World Series of Poker, the iPad has quickly become a fairly ubiquitous gadget. To explore just how popular the gadget is, here’s a few examples of the iPad in the wild that you may not have seen yet.European Parliament Hands Out iPads to All MembersLast month a Belgian newspaper reported that the European Union would be providing iPads to each member of the European Parliament. For those keeping score, that’s 736 people for a grand total of anywhere between €300,000 and €600,000 in iPad sales depending on the model. Additionally, the money is being taken from a taxpayer budget of €5 million and could represent as much as 12% of the budget spending.iPads in America, however, are still banned from the House and Senate floors where similar technologies, like laptops, have remained absent. The EU says they are passing out the iPads to parliament members to make them more accessible to their constituency, but shouldn’t that responsibility be up to the members themselves?The iPad Street MagicianThe iPad apparently isn’t just good for browsing the web and watching video in style. It can also bend spoons, and make books, birds and money appear out of thin air. At least that’s what one Japanese street magician wants you to believe. By combining some sleight of hand, camera trickery, rehearsed timing and a personalized iPad video, this magician, Shinya, proves that the iPad can be a useful tool for magicians. chris cameron 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
