2010: building a safe South Africa

first_img6 November 2008In the dead of night, the Durban city centre is not for the faint-hearted. Like many CBDs around the world, criminals use the cover of darkness to operate, and soft-targets – like tourists – are particularly vulnerable.But for one wonderful weekend a few months ago, the port city was one of the safest on the planet. The occasion was the 2010 Preliminary Draw – FIFA’s first major event on African soil – and a security blanket in and around the International Convention Centre, the beachfront and even the CBD ensured that the thousands of delegates and tourists were safe.It was the start of a blueprint which has seen the South African Police Service (SAPS) working with security agencies from around the world to create no-go zones for criminals in every 2010 host city.And over the past week or so there have been some interesting developments. The SAPS has been given an arsenal of new equipment to boost security for the tournament.These include eight Remote Operated Vehicles which come with an array of sensors, six new helicopters, six command and control vehicles, new French crowd management control equipment, and an Israeli-manufactured water cannon truck.The police, departments of justice and correctional services have also thrashed out a plan that could see ultra-fast arrests, court appearances and brief detentions of offenders during the tournament.New Safety and Security Minister Nathi Mthethwa has vowed to tackle criminals “head-on” to ensure that South Africans become confident about their safety ahead of the tournament.And with an additional 55 000 new personnel being recruited and trained within the next year, perhaps crime-weary South Africans can look forward to a new-found sense of safety.It’s one of the most important legacies the World Cup is likely to leave with us.Urquhart is a former Fifa World Cup media officer and the current editor of Project 2010last_img read more

I am here to improve my critique to four stars. Getting minimal encounter i wasn’t extremely pleased with the value i payed and the problem of the merchandise, but with me these days realizing alot extra about them, they are double wefted and have alot of hair, most only promote 70g of hair but this is virtually double. I would acquire these again if they had been less expensive but i am going to buy thicker types. I do suggest folks buying these due to the fact there are eight thick parts and four of the parts are significant wefts, 2 are medium and 2 are modest. Contrary to other sellers i have purchased from’ this organization has more hair and extra wefts. Example: instead of a ten piece established that has 4 minor just one clips, this seller sells an eight piece that has more hair than the 10 piece sets. Do not be fooled on how many items people today promote, thank you.supermodel 20 inch Jet Black (Col 1). Full Head Clip in Human Hair Extensions. High quality Remy Hair!. 120g Weight : I bought a set of the 16 inch black extensions a few months ago and i have to say they are the best clip in extensions i have ever bought. They arrived within days of my order, i think i ordered on a tuesday and they arrived by the thursday. The minute i put them in an straightened my hair you couldn’t tell the difference between what was my hair and what was the extensions. People are shocked when i tell them my hair isn’t actually this length but it’s extensions. The amount of tracks you receive for the price is amazing. You can wear as many or as little as you want. I currently only need to wear two at a time to get the effect i need for everyday wear. For nights out i use 3-4 tracks, so i will always have some tracks left over if i ever need them. I will be ordering a set of the 18 inch ones soon as i want a longer length for my graduation ceremony next month. I honestly was expecting this merchandise to be weak quality thanks to buying off the internet. I am really shocked at how terrific it isi have really thin hair and was anticipating it to be thinner but it’s that thick, i really don’t need to have to use the full lotamazing.The hair is a bit slender but jst doubled it. The hair is a bit slender but jst doubled it up by stitching the other larger pieces with each other as i only have to have the one piece for bottom of hair and it is accomplished just the position for for me plus if u curl it , it seems to be thicker so for the price i couldn’t talk to for extra.Most effective ive bought from amazon. These are the best i’ve bought from amazon . They are essentially black like explained as a substitute of possessing blonde and pink through them like others i have acquired formerly from other sellers. They weighed 200 grams with the clips connected. Doubled above so not exceptionally slender like other individuals i’ve purchased , i have ordered an additional set so i can sew additional on to them even so this is simply because i experienced my hair lower and these are 20 inches if i experienced remaining my hair lengthier i wouldn’t have desired some doubling up. I choose these to the significant brand name title types i bought on the internet previous month as they were so bulky they hung in clumps and didn’t blend with my hair and also these price £80 significantly less . They truly feel pretty soft and glimpse purely natural.I have some artificial types and they just dont examine with these human types. They appear actually fairly if place in thoroughly. I am eighteen and i have jet black dyed straight hair that reaches about 5 inches below my shoulders and these support to give my hair some duration and make my hair glimpse fuller. I tease my hair and poof it up then use these to get the ‘scene’ search. Although the description said that the extensions were 18 inch i’ve lately experienced my hairdresser take them down to 16 inch and they do not glance as ‘witch’ like.Getting a hair qualified getting worn clip in extensions for 5 years i am generally a bit unwilling to order from new folks, as you by no means know what sort of hair it is you are buying, some is excellent qaulity and you can explain to, some is not so great. I requested this item (15”) as my hair is moderately limited and on my certain hair design way too extended appears to be far too unrealistic. It arrived in just 3 days and i opened with anticipation, at first i thought i’d just recieved hair (without having clips) as it was packaged considerably the very same way as it is when you just get hair on its personal. But there were being clips on them and the hair is truly doubled more than, (offering you thicker hair) as a lot of extensions are just singles. I am incredibly satisfied with this item and it is gorgeous qaulity hair. Quite joyful and would definitely buy yet again. Also, recieved 2 cards to give to good friends with low cost codes or to maintain for your following purchase. Pretty happy and will be ordering when i want to restock :)emma.Nevertheless you will will need to get two packs and double up. They are not for a full head.They have arrived early which is normally a moreover. I am so impressed with these extensions, of course they are marginally thinner at the finishes but what can you assume for £17. Astounding value for the hair you get feels incredible, a hundred% human hair. If you have thicker hair you may well require two packs but mine is slim so i can get absent with just one. Deffinately acquire them, there are quite a few terrible reviews for these extensions but they are actually awesome.Only position i will purchase my hair extensions from now. Brilliant quality for the selling price and they will not lose. Delivery is amazing was expecting to hold out a week for supply but only waited a working day.I bought this hair to attempt and help save myself funds acquiring them locally. On the other hand it came back again rather thin. But as my hair is thick, i desired an additional half heads well worth.Clip in human hair extensions. Most effective clip ins ever so at ease not like my other hair extensions can even rest in these onesthis is undoubtedly a have to by for any one hunting for great quality and fairly priced hair extensions.To the ideal hair extension i have bought alright for the rate, drop a whole lot and are incredibly thin two packs demanded to be honest.This hair is charming and delicate nevertheless i have good hair and just one pack is not more than enough hair the hair is not incredibly think at all but i assumed getting wonderful hair it would not require to be consider but i have experienced to set my aged exstentions in as nicely as these the quality of hair is superior but if u buy i would suggest two packs and sew the wefts collectively to make each and every weft thicker.Brilliant shipping and delivery arrived the following day. Actually good quality extensions actually thick & shiney defo be having these again 🙂 all my good friends commented on my hair sayin it appears excellent and asking in which i acquired the extensions.I ordered these for my daughter and she was extremely delighted with them, superior thickness ,fantastic colour match and properly packaged as well as a fast shipping and delivery also.Not 20 inch at all but what do you count on for the cost?. I requested two sets of these as i have truly thick hair and they seemed fab. Shipping and delivery was actually speedy as well think they arrived inside of two times of me buying. Will 100% get these yet again ❤️ them.I often purchase my hair extensions from ebay and i have hardly ever been that satisfied with them, they were often slender, and wispy didnt very last extended, and ive purchased alot of hair extensions. When i recieved these hair extenions ( which was incredibly excellent and pretty fast shipping and delivery ) i was abit fearful but as soon as i opened them you could tell they had been thick, my hairs quite limited so when i set them in they ended up so thick and in quite quite good condition you cant even see my true hair via them. I highly recommend acquiring from this person as i will be yet again, wonderful communictaion and really trustworthy.last_img read more

Adobe’s New Update Makes the Creative Cloud an Essential Platform

first_imgCharacter AnimatorCharacter Animator now allows animators to perform walk cycles with keyboard controls, record mouth shapes based on voice, and adjust mouth shapes in the timeline with the new Lip Sync tool. Character Animator also added a workspace designed for live broadcast and the ability to connect multiple machines to perform multi-character animations.Team ProjectsTeam Projects gets a few updates, including Dynamic Link support and better project management tools for editing teams that work in various locations.What updates are you most excited about? Let us know in the comments below. Premiere Pro gets powerful new workspaces with better After Effects and Audition integration.Just as the Lumetri Color workspace changed color grading in Premiere Pro, the new Audio and Graphics workspaces bring powerful tools from Audition and After Effects to the NLE. After Effects gets a powerful new deblur tool and Lumetri color grading, while Audition announces a better multichannel workflow — plus news on Character Animator and updates to Team Projects.Premiere Pro CC 2017Premiere Pro turns 25 years old and has established itself as an essential NLE. The latest version of Premiere Pro CC 2017 (11.1.0) is no longer competing with the likes of FCPX or even DaVinci Resolve. Premiere Pro has set its sights on Avid, aiming to be the industry-standard editing platform.From team collaborations to custom workspaces for color, graphics, audio, and more, Premiere Pro meets the demands of both the multitasking video editor and the collaborative creative workflow. With new Essential Graphics and Essential Audio Workspaces, Premiere Pro is now an all-encompassing video editing powerhouse.Premiere Pro Essential Graphics WorkspaceThe Premiere Pro Essential Graphics workspace introduces a new panel that works seamlessly with After Effects. The tools in the workspace are similar to those in Photoshop and Illustrator, in that they enable you to work with text; align and transform words and shapes; and adjust color, opacity, drop shadow, and more.Essential Graphics Tools:Type Tool — change the font, size, blending mode, and color of the textShape Layers — use rectangle, oval, and freeform drawing toolsClip Layers — add images or video to graphicsHere is a look at the new Type tool in action.Motion Graphics Templates will allow motion designers to create title sequences or graphics in After Effects with parameters a video editor can adjust in Premiere Pro. This eliminates the need for video editors to send titles back for minor revisions, since  you can now adjust the text, shape, and clip layers in Premiere Pro. These Motion Graphics Templates will replace the need for Live Text Templates.Premiere Pro Audio WorkspaceThe new Essential Sound panel in Premiere Pro and Audition gives video editors the power to accurately adjust audio as intended, rather than relying on the expertise of a sound engineer. Editors can assign a mix type to clips, giving each clip a role in the project — dialogue, music, sound effects, and ambience. This gives you the ability to adjust the loudness of a single role, like dialogue, uniformly at once.If you find that Premiere Pro is not meeting your audio adjustment needs, you can send the changes you’ve made to Audition for additional alterations. Premiere Pro’s single sliders in the Essential Sound panel are actually working with several different sliders underlying the program. To dive into the detailed controls, expert sound designers can fine tune changes in the effects tab or in Audition. The audio will transfer between the programs as a live effect. All of these changes rely on Adobe Sensei, the company’s artificial intelligence and machine learning framework.As a further audio note, Premiere Pro now supports Ambisonic audio exports for VR and 360-degree videos.After Effects CC 2017Though Premiere Pro saw most of the big updates, After Effects received some powerful upgrades as well.Motion Graphics TemplatesThe Essential Graphics panel correlates with the same panel in Premiere Pro, but in After Effects, motion designers can control the Motion Graphics Templates in ways video editors in Premiere Pro cannot. After Effects users can organize the adjustable parameters like episode number, lower thirds text, color, and alternate styles. Then you can export AE projects as Motion Graphics Templates for use in Premiere Pro. Over twenty templates are available with the update.Camera Shake DeblurThe most powerful AE update is the new Camera Shake Deblur tool. If you stabilized footage with Warp Stabilizer, you may have seen some blurred footage. The Camera Shake Deblur analyzes footage, detects blur, and then finds sharp frames around the edge of the blurred area. An automated process then processes a smoother image and applies it to the footage.Lumetri Color GradingThe powerful Premiere Pro Lumetri color tools are now available in After Effects, enabling users to work with Lumetri scopes, perform basic corrections, control HSL, and more. Designed for a broadcast workflow, Lumetri can switch between 8-bit, float, and HDR modes.Other Adobe CC UpdatesIn addition to the Premiere Pro and After Effects updates, there is still more for those creatives working in Team Projects, Audition, and Character Animator.Adobe AuditionThe Essential Sound panel (like the Graphics panel) works directly with Audition, and using Dynamic Link, you can view footage in Audition as well. There have also been major updates to the multichannel workflow. Multitrack allows sound engineers to break out multichannel files into separate clips or choose custom channel configurations.last_img read more
