R118m skills programme for emerging road contractors

first_img3 March 2014 Emerging road contractors in South Africa’s Gauteng province are set to benefit from the provincial government’s R118-million Vuk’phile programme, aimed at boosting skills development and job creation in the sector. The three-year project, aimed mainly at small contractors, women and youth, was launched by Gauteng Roads and Transport Minister Ismail Vadi at Finetown Community Hall, south of Johannesburg on Thursday. The Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport is running the programme in partnership with the national Department of Public Works and Nedbank. “Emerging road contractors are empowered to manage labour-intensive projects, while Nedbank provides seed funding based on its financial viability criteria,” Vadi said at the launch. He said that 24 small contractors had been appointed by the department for a period of 36 months, during which time they will receive training in project management and roadworks at the Zwartkop Training Centre. Six more contractors are to be appointed later this year. According to the department, the successful contractors will be responsible for the maintenance of 479 kilometres of the provincial road network, and the project is expected to create 2 125 jobs. Work to be carried out under the programme includes cleaning drainage structures, removing grass and debris from grids, clearing bridge drainage ports and scuppers, repairing damaged fencing and road signs, installating and replacing road studs, mowing grass in road reserves, cutting firebreaks and assisting with veld fires, and providing emergency assistance to motorists. Vadi said he was particularly pleased that 50 percent of the contractors are women-owned companies, two percent are people with disabilities and more than half of the contractors are under 35 years of age. At the launch, Vadi and his departmental officials carried out maintenance work on the D1861 road near Lawley and the R554 along Eikenhof, south of Johannesburg.

Who wins the three-way cloud battle? Google vs. Azure vs. AWS

first_imgInternet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Small Business Cybersecurity Threats and How to… Follow the Puck Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts When choosing a cloud platform, newcomers may only look at the cost, but many different business needs should be taken care of before making the final call. We hope to help you get a clear perspective on three major cloud platforms.Right now, there are three main players in the market: Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure. The fierce competition has enabled cheap cloud computing prices and excellent competing feature-set. This helps small business to grow easily and big business to capitalize on the growth that they have been doing for so many years.See also: 4 common mistakes companies make in transitioning to the cloudCloud computing has single-handedly changed how technology works. Now anyone can host their website on the cloud, manage their files, and do stuff not possible before. Big business also takes full advantage of cloud computing.Why cloud is important for big and small business playersIt is important to understand why cloud computing is critical for the current market before we dive deep into the actual comparisons. Cloud computing enables companies to forget about maintaining an infrastructure. Many large companies such as LiveEdu, Netflix, and Spotify take full advantage of the cloud and by doing so, they don’t have to worry about the technicalities that go into maintaining a cloud. Also, they don’t have to worry about the infrastructure, enabling them to focus on what they do best: provide their service to the audience.Small business can also take advantage of cloud and focus on developing their product and not the infrastructure that is required to make them operational.Who’s who?Google Cloud Platform (GCP): GCP started their journey on October 6, 2011. With only 5 years in operation, they have created good presence in the market. The initial push was done to power their own services such as YouTube and Google. Later on, they built enterprise services and enabled anyone to host in the cloud. Google manages GCP.Amazon Web Services (AWS): With 11 years in operation, AWS is one of the oldest players in the cloud market. Their computing services are extensive and cover important cloud sections such as deployment, mobile networking, etc. Amazon manages AWS.Microsoft Azure: Azure is also 6 years old and has shown great promise in the market. They can easily be associated with the leader group in the market with AWS. Azure also provide a complete set of cloud services. Microsoft manages Azure.Note: Cloud services are composed of multiple pre-configured products. To give us a reference of providers’ insight, we will call them “solutions.” These “solutions” can be used to solve a problem with good efficiency and reliability.A three-way battleTo understand the difference between the three major players, we need to evaluate them using different parameters. In the end, we will try to also give a general outlook and use cases for which each of the cloud computing services can be used.Please note that we are not going to discuss pricing. The reason is simple; the prices fluctuate too much, and that’s why it’s best to check their respective pricing page to know more. In full disclosure, here they are:GCP pricing page: https://cloud.google.com/pricing/Microsoft Azure pricing page: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/AWS pricing page: https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/pricing/ComputeCompute is the processing power that the cloud services offer. In general, the more compute power, the better. It is directly proportional to the price, and hence price also plays a significant role in understanding the compute power offered by the three players.So if you need more computing power, you just need to allocate more resources to your current session. Startups are most benefited from this approach as they can order compute power anytime they want without worrying about installation, maintenance and hardware costs.Let’s start with AWS. They offer EC2(Elastic Compute Cloud) which handles all the compute services. It works by managing virtual machines which can either be configured by the owner or comes with preconfigured settings for ease of use. In comparison, GCP offers GCE (Google Compute Engine) to do essentially the same thing. Our last contender, Microsoft Azure provides Virtual Machines and Virtual Machine Scale Sets.All of them support containers. They are easy to manage and truly portable. Amazon’s EC2 Container Service(ECS), Google’s Container Engine and Azure’s own container service enable you to handle your instances more swiftly. You can add more stats to them easily or can move them to new locations without much hassle.Conceptually, all of them are similar however, the real struggle happens when you try to see it through the lens of price and user experience. Read the cloud cost analysis on RightScale to get an idea of which cloud platform offers the best bang for the buck when it comes to choosing a cloud platform according to compute power.StorageStorage is yet another important parameter in understanding how a cloud service works. Cloud storage works completely different from the normal HDD or SSD on our computers. They need to solve multiple problems and also make sure that no data is lost during the transfer. The complexity led to some brilliant solution from the best cloud service providers.Out of the three cloud providers discussed here, Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) is considered the best. It has been extensive documentation, proper community support and the longevity, i.e., tried and tested. So, if you are looking for a proper storage solution with plenty of resources, Amazon S3 can be your best bet.The other two players also offer decent storage solution. Microsoft Azure Storage and Google Cloud Storage offer reliable services. Just like compute power, storage also has a price tag associated with it. As Amazon has better storage solution, they are costly, and hence only be chosen if you have the budget for it.Backup solutions are also provided, and they work differently when it comes to pricing. LocationsWhen it comes to deploying your application, location is important. First, you want to make sure that the application performs at its peak by having the lowest possible route to the intended customer base. Secondly, you want to make sure that you spend less money when it comes to using these cloud services. Yup, the prices differ according to which region you are taking services from. For example, US can be an expensive place to run a cloud server.All three of them offer great coverage all around the world. Amazon leads the pack with 42 availability zones. Azure also has a good coverage with availability in 32 regions. GCP have a presence across 33 countries. It should be noted that new regions are added on a regular basis.DatabasesA database is a complex thing to handle however, before you invest in any of the cloud platforms, it is advisable to read their software terms and conditions, and how they manage data on their cloud.Database images from different vendors let you get started easily. Google seem to be lacking in providing an option to the end user, whereas, Azure and AWS offer a good amount of option to work with. Amazon’s RDS (Relational Database Service) provides support for major databases including Oracle, PostgreSQL, etc. The service manages everything from updating to patching even to offer solutions to common database problems.Azure SQL database and Cloud SQL offers SQL database handling features for Azure and GCP respectively. They also offer high-performance DB choices such as DocumentDB for Azure, and Aurora for AWS. Clearly, there are multiple types of tools and services offered by the major service providers.DocumentationLast, but not the least is the documentation. Documentation plays an important role when it comes to choosing the cloud platform for yourself or your company. Ease of use is a valid factor and should not be ignored at all.AWS offers the best documentation, followed closely by Azure and GCP. AWS documentation is built thanks to its age and contribution from multiple people over a decade. Some final thoughtsComparing cloud services can be a tough task but this comparison only scratches the surface and is meant for people who are getting started with cloud computing. If you are stuck and cannot decide on which cloud platform to choose, you can always hire a cloud expert readily available in the market. They know the in’s and out’s of cloud platforms and can suggest you a cloud service according to your need.If you would like to go to with the safest option, Amazon AWS is the best way to go. If your application utilizes Microsoft products or languages, Azure can help you sustain and take advantage of Microsoft’s ecosystem. GCP stands in a sweet spot and is viable most of the time. As an individual or a company, you need to ensure proper compatibility and testing before moving to a particular cloud service. This leads us to the end of the article.

In Remembrance

first_imgRajesh Khanna, Indias first superstar, called it a day on July 18. He was like none other: The good, the bad, the ugly, in an unforgettable mix. He was the love of my childhood?It was one of those cards with dates on one side, and a photograph on the reverse. It was the previous year s calendar, but I didnt care. On the flip side, Rajesh Khanna smiled, oozing devastating charm, his head tilted at a jaunty angle (he kept it like that through most of his movies). It was the 1970s. I was three or four years old. We lived in Silchar, a small town bordering Bangladesh, where there wasnt much to do except watch Hindi movies and have weekend card parties with family friends or so it seemed to me. Ma took me along to the evening shows that she and my father went for. (She felt it was a better option than leaving me with the boy helps?? at home.) So began my love affair with Hindi films. I had a deep fondness for Shashi Kapoor, but my heart was taken by Khanna. Aradhana, Kati Patang, Aan Milo Sajana, Anand, Amar Prem? most of them backed by unforgettable songs by Kishore Kumar. I saw Haathi Mera Saathi four times. I was intensely jealous of the heroine Tanuja and wanted to be her. In those days of apolitical parenting, my mother found it amusing and stitched me a pink trouser suit like the one Tanuja wore in the film and even took a photo of me posing in it. She still has it. Though I never got to like Amitabh Bachchan and had only a brief infatuation with Shah Rukh Khan, I outgrew Khanna. I found his hairstyle in the latter years, distinctly effeminate; the winking eyes, the famous head-tilt, the casual saunter, the I-hate-tears melodrama, increasingly fake, repetitive and nauseating. By the time he came to act in Anurodh with sister-in-law Simple, I was through. It was over. Years passed. It was a recent tv commercial for a fan company where he was shown as an eternal superstar with fans that go on forever??, much like the devices being sold that brought him back to mind. I was shocked. The man in the ad was gaunt, less than a shadow of his former self, with an unbecoming stubble an old and ailing man! I read all I could about him the ensuing drama starring his long-separated wife Dimple, and son-in-law, Akshay Kumar, waving to the crowds, saying he was fine, even though he was in and out of hospital. And then he died. I caught the news on TV at the airport. Stopping in my tracks, I exclaimed, Rajesh Khanna is dead! It signaled an end of a madness that had taken the late 60s and early 70s by storm. A romance of my childhood gone forever. My 25-yearold companion said, Oh, ya, wasnt he ill? Nonchalant, just like that. She added, Its not as if Amitabh Bachchan has died. Sadly, Indias first superstar, had wi l l ful ly, with incredible arrogance, botched it. Bachchan is 69 today and still hero worshipped by a 25-year-old she has not seen a single Rajesh Khanna film.The EnigmaBut that is, or was, Rajesh Khanna. He just dared to be. Himself, always. He didnt care about the Joneses, Khans or Kumars. To begin with, his was not a rags to riches story. In his struggling?? days he would go around in an Impala, impudent, an upstart, but always stylish. As a superstar, he was obnoxious and arrogant, critics said. Through four years yes, his stardom lasted roughly from 1969 to 1973 he starred in 15 hits back-to-back, I think, a record yet to be broken in the Hindi film industry. He was a phenomenon as none before and after. Millions of fans, cutting across classes, worshipped the mortal-demigod. When he wore a guru kurta to hide his bulging midriff, most of India followed suit. Then he sported a belt on the kurta, and more followed. In Bawarchi, he wore a Nehru cap; and there followed a spate of films where the khansama (cook) was shown wearing similar head gear even though no cook in real life ever did. His follies were forgiven. He would be late on the sets (except for Hrishikesh Mukherjees films; the director gave him some of his biggest hits, including the classic, Anand); he refused to be slapped by the actor Sanjeev Kumar in Aap Ki Kasam even though the scene demanded it because he was the superstar; he romanced several, allegedly ruining lives; dropped Anju Mahendroo, his long-time girlfriend and married the 16-year-old Dimple Kapadia when he was 32, only to drive her to loneliness and drinks, or so it was said. He then took up with Tina Munim, also much younger? He dared the Fates and did not care where it took him, and it took him to no place good. The Bachchan phenomenon was gaining ground insidiously; it was time for the angry young man??; romance was pass. Rajesh Khanna could not accept it. In an interview with Bachchan, a rare one, he was his usual self where he quest ioned, the oh-so-proper Babumoshai, about how he could honestly say fame or failure left him unmoved. He himself took the fall terribly, but was relent lessly unapologetic. He drank from dawn till dusk, it was rumoured; he made B grade films, one even with the recently murdered starlet Laila Khan. And after his death, came Ms Anita Advani who claimed to be his lover for the last 10 years of his life? In a TV episode of Aap Ke Adalaat??, to an allegation that he had begun copying himself, the cutesy mannerisms, he declared loftily that no one but Rajesh Khanna could do a Rajesh Khanna??. One & Only Love him or hate him, its true, there could have been only one Rajesh Khanna. Critics panned him; they had a field day revelling in his non-actor stardom. Yet, Dimple Kapadia (by then separated), once told off the hounds??, chiding them to go watch Prem Nagar, a movie he did with Hema Malini, to see real acting??. And as he lay dying, Anju Mahendroo who never married, came visiting; and Dimple, the mother of his two daughters, stood vigil by his bedside. So-called arch rival Amitabh, and son Abhishek, came to pay their respects, as did most of the industry. They all sensed that it was the end of something that was never to be again. Thousands of fans turned up at his funeral. No one mobbed the celebrities; they were focused on their hero. Fans cried out their loss; DVDs of his films were sold out overnight. I only wish he could have come back for a day to have witnessed the spectacle. I have no doadvertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

Here’s why more and more Indians are travelling to Peru

first_imgThe incas might be gone forever but the legacy they left behind continues to draw many a traveller to its erstwhile kingdom. Machu Picchu, an Inca citadel situated in the Peruvian Andes, benefits the most from modern man’s fascination with the ancient civilisation. In fact, as Luis Cabello, commercial counsellor, Commercial Office of Peru in India, Embassy of Peru, reveals, it is the “most popular tourist destination in Peru”.He says, “Recently at the World Travel Awards 2017, it received the title of the World’s Best Tourist Destination. The numbers of tourists that the sacred site of the Incan empire receives is one of the highest, not only in Peru but in the world. But we recognise that there exist pressing concerns for the preservation of the site, and now there are restrictions in place which allow only allow a certain number of visitors per day.”Photo : Mail Today Peru is more than Machu Picchu though. “The Nazca lines, Lake Titicaca, the Tomb of the Lord of Sipan, Manu and Tampopata are some of the most popular sites in Peru. More than 60 per cent of Peru is covered by the Amazonian rainforest and two of the deepest canyons in the worlds -Cotahuasi and Colca – are situated in Peru,” says Cabello.Also Read: 9 ways to explore Lima, the capital of PeruConsidering its many attractions, it’s hardly a surprise that the number of Indians travelling to Peru is increasing year on year. “When our office opened in 2014,” says Cabello, “the numbers were approximately three thousand annually. The last figures we received from 2017 show an influx of approximately seven thousand Indians to Peru in 2016. The growth rate has been an almost steady percentage of 20 per cent in the last two years and we hope to only grow the numbers further.”advertisementPhoto : Mail Today Also Read: All the things you shouldn’t miss in Tokyo, the capital of JapanTo help the numbers grow, the Peruvians are focusing on promoting their coun-try’s adventurous side. “Activities like diving, sport fishing, kayaking and sand-boarding are available in the coastline of Peru. Trekking in the Andes, bird and nature watching and mountain climbing are available at Choquequirao and the Vilcabamba range in Cusco.” Another great option is to visit any of the eight altitude zones in the country. “All this and more is available to the tourist in Peru, and this is only a small sample of all that Peru offers,” Cabello concludes.last_img read more
