Kick start for rugby programme

(Image: SA Rugby)Janine ErasmusRugby fans in both hemispheres are looking forward to the British and Irish Lions’ tour of South Africa in 2009. Now the tour’s main partner HSBC has launched a schools rugby initiative that includes a drive to supply underprivileged South African children with much-needed rugby equipment.The initiative, known as the Rugby Festival campaign, was launched by two of rugby’s brightest stars, England’s Jason Robinson and South Africa’s Bryan Habana. Habana was named the International Rugby Board’s (IRB) Player of the Year in 2007.The SOS Kit Aid programme is partnering with HSBC in its Rugby Festival scheme. SOS Kit Aid gives less advantaged children in emerging nations around the world a chance to play and develop rugby. It achieves this through the collection and distribution of unused or unwanted kit such as balls, jerseys, boots and protective gear, from schools around the UK and Ireland.Part of the Kit Aid programme involves, for the first time, the twinning of 40 HSBC schools in the UK with 40 South African schools. Pupils at these schools will benefit from the kit collection initiative and will be able to proceed with the development of their own programmes, with equipment delivered during the Lions tour.In November 2008 the SOS Kit Aid programme proudly announced its 100th kit delivery – to Swaziland, the first Kit Aid recipient outside eastern Europe. Rugby is a growing sport in the small Southern African nation, which currently boasts 14 clubs and 4 870 registered players. There are 1 320 pre-teen boy and 1 600 pre-teen girl players, with 946 teenage boy and 514 teenage girl players. Amongst the senior ranks there are 360 male players.Rugby stars help to grow the gameHabana and Robinson, both members of IRB Rugby World Cup-winning teams, were on hand at the twinning of the first two schools, southwest London’s Pimlico Academy and Hillcrest Primary School in Port Elizabeth.The pair kicked off the collection by donating some of their own old kit, and also took the time to offer some personal playing tips to their young fans. Over the coming months, businesses, schools and individuals in the Pimlico area will be encouraged to make their own contributions.Pimlico Academy principal Jerry Collins said, “We are delighted to be given the opportunity to twin with Hillcrest Primary in South Africa, and in so doing, participate in the SOS Kit Aid project. The opportunity to develop a wider cultural exchange with the kids in South Africa in the lead up to the Lions Tour is a hugely exciting prospect.” The school now has a rugby team for the first time ever.Robinson fully supports the programme and believes that through it, two very different cultures will be brought together in a unique way. “It offers hundreds of children both here and in South Africa a unique and fantastic way of sharing a Lions experience. I am excited to see how the twinning of the HSBC rugby schools with the schools out in South Africa will have a positive impact on the children.”South African superstar Habana personally nominated Hillcrest as the first school to be linked with an HSBC school. “Hillcrest Primary School has very basic facilities and yet they are desperate to play rugby,” he said. “Rugby is already proving to have a positive impact on the lives of these children and this will be further helped through the support of the children from Pimlico.”A superstar of rugbyHabana launched his own rugby development organisation, the Bryan Habana Foundation, earlier in 2008. “I have had a great upbringing and there was always a great level of support,” he remarked. “But you go to a school like Hillcrest where there is very little to aspire to. For me, to go there and to try to make a difference is a big challenge.”The pride of South African rugby, who plays on the wing, was an integral part of the team that lifted the William Webb Ellis Trophy for the second time in 2007. His record-equalling eight tries (the only other player to score that many tries in an IRB Rugby World Cup final is the legendary Jonah Lomu of New Zealand) earned him the IRB’s top accolade for an individual player in that year.Habana currently plays for the Pretoria-based Blue Bulls and was named the South African Player of the Year in 2005 and 2007, as well as the Young Player of the Year in 2004. The star, who famously raced a cheetah over 100m in 2007 and lost by only a narrow margin, is feared and respected by his rivals for his exceptional fleetness of foot. The cheetah race was to raise awareness of the animal’s endangered conservation status and to support the work of the De Wildt Cheetah and Wildlife Trust.As a team, South Africa is presently second on the IRB’s latest world rankings, behind their age-old rivals, the New Zealand All Blacks. The country’s Sevens Rugby team has just won their first Sevens Cup title on home soil, coming from behind to beat defending champions New Zealand 12-7 during the first week of December 2008.The tournament is the second on the annual Sevens calendar, taking place a week after the opening event of the season in Dubai – which was also won by the South Africans. The next leg of the 2008/2009 season takes place in Wellington, New Zealand in February 2009.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Giving rhinos a voice through art

first_imgThe Crash of Rhinoceros is now a large-scale platform of conscious artwork, whereby the public can use the template – My Rhinoceros – to create their own rhino sculptures. A rhino installation made by several artists, launched at the Afrikaburn cultural festival in April 2012.(Images: Extinct) Joanna Orr’s hunting trophy head of a rhino, made from recyclable materials.(Image: Head on Design)Cadine PillayThrough her conscious art background, Cape Town-based artist Nix Davies is doing her bit to help fight the current plight of South Africa’s rhino population, which continues to drop in large numbers because of rampant poaching.Crash of Rhinoceros is an initiative started by Davies that aims to create awareness about rhino poaching and the dangers faced by the animals on a daily basis. EXTINCT, a collection of rhino sculptures made by several artists who worked with her, launched at the annual Afrikaburn cultural festival in April.The exhibition consisted of life-size artworks modelled in the shape of the rhino and displayed across the Karoo desert, where Afrikaburn is usually held.Conscious art is art with a voice. “It is about adding value to the making and understanding of the art by increasing our awareness of what we are doing, the context in which we make art, and the motivations that produce art,” says Davies.The name serves its intended purpose of creating a sense of disturbing awe.Getting people involvedThe idea of EXTINCT came about when Davies decided earlier in 2012 to educate Western Cape pupils about the danger faced by rhinos. A larger collaborative movement grew from this, with other artists, teachers, conservationists and members of the public coming on board to expand the work.The rhino sculptures soon found homes in various public spaces, such as schools, shopping complexes, beaches and tourist sites including Table Mountain.Davies’s vision for Crash of Rhinoceros, however, does not end at the viewing of sculptures by the public. The aim is for the movement to be adopted by artists in other countries as well. Through a template called My Rhinoceros, which varies in size, anyone wishing to build their own rhino sculpture can do so. Australia and Taiwan have already taken to the movement, and several of the artworks have been spotted in those countries.The template is made out of X-core board, a type of fibreboard made of recycled materials, and widely used in the construction industry. Through EXTINCT’s Facebook page, interested parties can learn how to build their own rhinos from scratch.“It will raise the conscious awareness of the long-term effects of our actions as humans,” said Davies of the global movement.She plans to extend the installation internationally by linking with artists, activists and conservation groups in other countries.The hunting trophyOne artist who has extended the efforts of EXTINCT through her own work is Joanna Orr, who started a graphic and web-design company called Head on Design. Orr’s company produces its own range of rhino sculptures, in the style of hunting trophies mounted on the wall.The sculptures are made from recycled material similar to that of the Crash of Rhinoceros works, and funds from their sale are channelled to anti-poaching projects.Orr uses either tanned upholstery or suede leathers in a wide range of colours, or X-core board in white, with some of the trophies colourfully decorated with paintings by local artists. Buyers of the rhino sculptures get to choose which organisation their money will go to.Each design takes around a month to create and perfect, the process starting with a sketch of the head at different angles to get a feel for the three-dimensional form.Sculptures are similar in size to that of the actual animal.last_img read more

Musical Memes, Choosing A Netizen Anthem

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Celebrated Amateurs: Tay Zonday’s “Chocolate Rain” first became viral via 4Chan and has since landed the mahogany-voiced baritone features on Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel Live, a spot on Lily Allen’s Freeloader Nation Tour, and several endorsement deals. Also an overnight sensation, Gary Brolsma or “the Numa Numa Guy” is best known for his animated YouTube lipsync to Moldovan band O-Zone’s “Dragostea din tei.” Brolsma has since been featured in a South Park episode and videos for the Bare Naked Ladies and Weezer. While neither of these songs make strong direct political or social statements, the fact that they are so widely embraced, is a testament to the web’s spirit of playfulness. There are a number of perfectly worthy anthems for the wired generation. Kraftwerk’s Computer Love might suffice, or the Ataris’ Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start captures the essence of devoted Konami Contra fans. But a real anthem rallies a movement. It’s the kind of song that is not only widely accepted, but it inspires people to change their lives and behaviors. The hippies have Blowin’ in the Wind, the children of disco have Stayin’ Alive and the GLBT community has I’m Coming Out. But what do modern day netizens consider their anthem? What gets us grooving in our guilds, cranking out our code and soldering up a mean arduino? Below are some of the top musical memes and anthems from recent years. If you got suggestions for a netizen anthem, leave them in the comments below. Love and Longing – Code Monkey: While Jonathan Coulton is perhaps one of the greatest geek anthem musicians with songs like Re Your Brains and That Spells DNA, Code Monkey still manages to top the list with its universal themes of a struggling underdog and unrequited geek love. The song actually became the theme for G4’s now defunct Code Monkeys TV series. It also spurred a number of YouTube mash ups including Mike Booth’s World of Warcraft machinima video. Pursuit of Knowledge – Free Software Song: Richard Stallman is best known as the founder of the GNU Project and father of the Free Software Foundation. A truly brilliant developer, Stallman has been writing folk songs about technology for more than a decade. His Free Software song based on Bulgarian “Sadi Moma” helped define the musical genre of “filking” – a type of folk music generally created by science fiction & fantasy fans. The song is a tribute to free culture and copyleft software licensing. Bootstrapped Success – Crank That Soulja Boy: In early 2007, DeAndre Ramone Way, also known as Soulja Boy, was a little known rap artist with a number of tracks released on YouTube and music community SoundClick. Thanks to his Crank That Soulja Boy hit, by 2009 Way was a Grammy Award nominated artist with a record deal and his own production company. According to a Yahoo’s Music blog post from May 2009, “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” has sold over 4,183,000 digital downloads in the United States, becoming the third highest-selling song ever. The song became an internet sensation after the dance tutorial video received more than 40 million YouTube views. Thousands of new videos have since been uploaded to YouTube in tribute to this anthem of a bootstrapped star. Resurrected Oldies: A number of songs written by music superstars have since become geek anthems. Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up was resurrected after 20 years when the act of tricking individuals into listening to the song or Rickrolling became a popular meme. The Astley meme became so widespread that Astley himself Rickrolled the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving parade in 2008. Meanwhile, Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” although always a popular rock ballad, got it’s first taste at video meme-dom in a “Team Cyprus” video that was wildly criticized as an ostentatious display of wealth during one of the country’s worst economic slumps in history. The song has since been featured in an a cappella version on the season premiere of Glee. The squeaky-clean Glee version debuted at number four on the Billboard charts. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Lists#web dana oshirolast_img read more
