Mpumalanga playing its part for South Africa’s reputation

first_imgJohannesburg, Thursday 17 September 2015 – Brand South Africa today took the national agenda to build and profile South Africa’s competitive strengths to Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, during a one-day workshop.The workshop was attended by local government representatives and officials from the Department of Health, Department of Rural Development and Land Reform, and the Government Communication and Information System.Robust discussion ensued on what makes South Africa a globally competitive inward destination for investment, tourism and skills and how provinces can play their part.Provincial and city brands are a critical building block of the nation brand, particularly as they often provide the first experience of a country. Visitors and investors experience a country through its provinces and cities and it for this reason that Brand South Africa is taking its programmes to provinces.One of the greatest attributes of the province of Mpumalanga and a significant contribution to the nation brand is its tourism offering and experience which begins at the airport. Discussions at the workshop centered on economic development and potential in the province. This will impact positively on both provincial social and economic development and ultimately South Africa’s reputation.Follow the conversation on #CompetitiveSAlast_img read more

10 months agoBayern Munich chief Salhamidzic casts fresh doubt on future of Chelsea, Spurs target Hummels

first_imgBayern Munich chief Salhamidzic casts fresh doubt on future of Chelsea, Spurs target Hummelsby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBayern Munich sports chief Hasan Salhamidzic has cast doubt on the future of Mats Hummels.The Germany defender has been linked with Chelsea and Tottenham in the last 24 hours.And Salihamidzic was less than definitive when asked if Hummels was happy at the club.He also stopped short of saying that the ex-Dortmund defender would be staying in January.When asked about Hummels on Wednesday night, Salhamidzic said: “He wanted to talk to me and to Kalle [Karl-Heinz Rummenigge]. I told him my point and he’s got his.”But I think we’ve come to a common denominator. I’m not going to disclose the details of the conversation.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Notre Dame Continues To Hold On To A Playoff Spot — But

LSU 7-21524100%<1% ▲ 21<1% RankingProbability of … Michigan 8-212181714%9% ▲ 211% Ohio State 10-032445%62% ▲ 2118% Notre Dame 9-1478—a26% ▲ 216% Same old, same old. The college football playoff committee had it easy this week. After a week of games where all their top teams won, they didn’t have to shake things up in their rankings much. The top five remain the same: Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Iowa. After suffering crushing losses last week, Baylor and Stanford fell back in the rankings. Meanwhile, the Sooner state made headway: Oklahoma State and Oklahoma rose up to the No. 6 and No. 7 spots, respectively. But while the Big 12 looks ascendant, they both can’t stay there long: they play each other Thanksgiving weekend.The FiveThirtyEight model has bad news for Notre Dame fans: last week it was Baylor that was projected to elbow out the Irish by season’s end; this week it’s Oklahoma. The model continues to think an undefeated or one-loss Big 12 champion will most likely surpass Notre Dame. Our model simulations — which predict where the committee will land in its final rankings on Dec. 6 — are shown in the following table: College Football Playoff (CFP) rankings as of Nov. 17. Oklahoma might eventually edge out Notre Dame, but they have two awfully tough games remaining: against TCU this Saturday and on the road versus Oklahoma State. While the Sooners are our favorite for the fourth slot, the model still only gives them a 45 percent chance of making it in.Lurking at the edges are a slew of hopefuls: Oklahoma State and Iowa, though each doesn’t have a loss, stand but a 25 percent and 22 percent chance to make it; one-loss stalwarts Florida, Baylor, and Michigan State — along with two-loss Stanford — all have above a 10 percent shot.For those of you who want more nitty-gritty about our projections, check out our original methodology manifesto, as well as last week’s methodology update.
