Sonjica dedicated the speech to former president Nelson Mandela.A budget of R2-million (US$268 415) has been set aside for the formation of the unit – this will be increased when necessary.South Africa already has a dedicated and highly successful environmental watchdog in the form of the Environmental Management Inspectorate or Green Scorpions.Formed in 2005, this countrywide network of inspectors, based in different government departments, works to flush out any contravention of environmental laws.The new reaction unit will work alongside the Green Scorpions, boosting their work in rooting out the smuggling of animal parts.Tackling environmental crimeIn her National Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Report for 2008/09, released in November 2009, Sonjica revealed that 4 661 cases were reported and investigated during this period, and 2 412 criminal dockets were opened. This is a marked increased compared with the 1 762 dockets declared in the previous report.Sonjica said that 2 547 arrests were made, although in just 258 cases a conviction was obtained. The meagre number of convictions compared with the higher number of dockets opened is said to be because of delays in the justice system.More positively, the number of acquittals dropped sharply to 18, compared to 441 the year before, and the number of plea bargains also fell from 98 to four over the same period.Furthermore, the number of registered green inspectors rose from 866 in 2008 to 903 in 2009, an increase of 4.3%. Of these, 70.2% work for the South African National Parks organisation. There are another 42 inspectors waiting in the wings – they have been trained but not yet deployed.In her 2010 budget speech Sonjica announced more progress towards the re-opening of special environmental courts, saying that the number of related crimes reported during 2009 presented a strong case for their establishment.Having committed herself to the project in her budget speech of 2008, Sonjica said that, with the assistance of Justice Minister Jeff Radebe, the first dedicated session for environmental crimes will take place in the Johannesburg Regional Court on 20 May 2010.Similar schemes will be rolled out in other centres around the country, including Durban, Nelspruit, and Hermanus, followed by more locations as the need arises.Sonjica said that some 300 prosecutors and 200 magistrates have received special training in anticipation of the new legal system.Killed for their hornsHowever, not even thevigilant Green Scorpions are able to make inroads into the indiscriminate killing of rhinos by poachers looking for horns.Sonjica attributed this directly to international crime syndicates supplying the hungry Middle and Far East markets. These criminal organisations have now set their sights on South Africa’s abundant rhino herds, and are suspected of infiltrating local game reserves and recruiting staff to locate and kill the animals.Rhino horn is used in traditional Chinese medicine, although modern science has yet to confirm its purported miraculous properties. The horn is also popular in the Middle East, as it’s used to make intricate dagger handles.In much of Africa rhino conservation efforts have been severely hampered by unrest, civil war and easy access to weapons.“We are predicting that by the end of this year, there will be 163 rhinos poached,” Sonjica said. “We are working with all of the security forces, as we are dealing with sophisticated mafia, from Asia, from all over the world.”The Kruger National Park is still the main target, as poachers can easily slip across the Mozambique and Zimbabwe borders to find their quarry. Parks in KwaZulu-Natal province are also in the criminals’ sight, and recent reports have revealed that they have started to poach in parks in other provinces as well.Deputy director in the branch of biodiversity and conservation, Fundisile Mketeni, said that his department would work with Interpol to clamp down on the illegal international trade.Success storyDespite the poaching problem, South Africa’s rhino conservation project has been remarkably successful, especially in terms of the white rhino (Ceratotherium simum), listed as near threatened on the red list of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.By the middle of the 20th century there were just a few hundred white rhino left in the South African wild, but strict conservation measures brought the numbers up to around 11 000, making it now the most plentiful rhino species in the world.Conservationists are still fighting to save the critically endangered black rhino (Diceros bicornis), whose numbers were estimated at around 1 470 in South Africa in 2007, compared with just 630 in 1980.However, rhino populations are decreasing in general across Africa, prompting a need for swift and decisive action to stop the decline.

Her countryhas increased its education spend from 8%of the total budget in 1985 to 23% in 2009.(Image: Andrew Heavans, Irin)MEDIA CONTACTS• Overseas Development Institute+44 20 7922 0300• Gareth ThomasODI Media and Public Affairs Officerg.firstname.lastname@example.org• Smita ChakmaODI Communications OfficerS.Chakma@odi.org.ukMany sub-Saharan African countries are off-track to achieve the UN’s Millennium Development Goals, but there have been pockets of success: Ghana is set to become the first country in Africa to halve poverty and hunger before 2015, while primary school enrolment in Ethiopia has increased by more than 500% since 1994, according to the Overseas Development Institute (ODI).Common to both examples has been the sustained commitment of each government to reform the respective sector, say researchers Jakob Engel and Henri Leturque.“The story of the past 20 years in Ghana’s agriculture sector has been one of incremental yet sustained change, rather than dramatic development,” states the Ghana report. The country’s government-led economic reforms, including devaluing the currency, liberalising markets, and restructuring the then-inefficient cocoa marketing board, have helped to boost food production by 80% per capita over the past 30 years, and enabled Ghana to become almost self-sufficient in staple crops such as yam and cassava.After 1983, agricultural output grew at an average 5.1% a year, and wider food availability led to moderate malnutrition dropping from 34% to 8% between 1991 and 2003. The proportion of underweight children under five fell from 30% to 17% from 1988 to 2008.But there is more to it: “There is a strong link between widening food availability and dropping malnutrition,” Leturque said, “but it is by no means the only answer – improved health and sanitation, and improved childcare practices, also played a role.” Despite progress in these areas, Ghana is off-track to achieve MDGs 4 and 5, to improve child and maternal health, according to a report by the National Development Planning Commission released on 14 September.Education in EthiopiaIn Ethiopia, the government set out to improve the education sector when it came to power after the civil war, “recognising rural poverty was not only a key driver in conflict and inequality, but was also holding the country back and perpetuating the cycle of poverty… and that ensuring children had access to school was key to these broader development goals,” said Engel.The government developed education reform plans and gradually upped its education spend from 8% of the total budget in 1985 to 23% in 2009, with donor education aid also rising. The increased funds went towards abolishing school fees, constructing and improving schools, and hiring and training teachers, among other activities.Key to meeting MDG 2 (achieving universal primary education) was a move in 1991 to devolve power to regions and districts to run their own schools, and shifting the language of instruction to local languages, says the ODI. In 1994, just 3-million pupils in Ethiopia attended primary school; by 2008 15.5-million did so, while secondary school attendance increased fivefold.Local authorities involved parent-teacher associations in rehabilitating and reviving schools, said Engel. “Lots of the investments made created access to households to send their children to school for the first time – there was a genuine appreciation of that, and people started to realise its relevance in their lives.”But more needs to be done to ensure progress continues – and is equitably spread in both countries. In Ethiopia, high drop-out rates remain in secondary school, quality teaching is still lacking, and some regions, such as Afar and Somali, are lagging behind on primary school enrolment. To get as-yet-unreached children into school, “will take more than school construction; it will take a focus on non-formal education, addressing maternal and child health, and early childhood development”, said Engel.Agricultural growth in Ghana has also been inequitably distributed: concentrated in the south to the detriment of the north. “A lot still needs to be done to support the north, where there are fewer resources to work with,” said Leturque.Source: Irin
June, which is National Safety Month, is an appropriate time to focus on young workers, as they head out of school and into the workforce. Many of them will find jobs in the retail industry, a leading employer of young workers in the United States.In 2014, there were approximately 18.1 million workers younger than age 24 in the United States. These workers represented 13 percent of the US workforce. Young workers have high workplace injury rates, explained in part by the high frequency of hazards in their typical workplaces. In retail work settings, for instance, slippery floors and use of knives and energized equipment are common hazards. Inexperience and lack of workplace safety training also increase risks of injury due to retail accidents for young workers. The youngest—those in middle and high schools—may have physical and psychosocial limitations that lead to higher injury rates.[text_ad use_post=’125303′]- Sponsor – In 2014, about 23,000 (1 of every 4) young retail workers were injured in a retail job. The rate of emergency department–treated workplace injuries was found to be about two times higher for young workers than for workers 25 years and older.In 2014, 18.1 million United States workers were under age 24.One of the most frequently reported injuries in retail is lacerations, or cuts. (Read Miranda’s story in the sidebar for a true account of a young person injured while working in retail.)To address their increased risk for work-related injury, NIOSH developed a new webpage for young retail workers. This page includes safety tips for recognizing workplace hazards and understanding the injuries they can cause, such as being struck by or stuck in an object or equipment; doing too much (overexertion); slips, trips, and falls; driving or riding incidents on the road; and workplace violence. What you know can keep you safe and healthy at work.SIDEBAR: Miranda’s MisfortuneMiranda, who had just turned 16, was at her first job in a local grocery store. One evening, she was to stock three departments. First, she had to open boxes with a box-cutting knife, and she felt pressure to get that done fast. Miranda ran the knife through a box, and the blade slid off the box and slashed her leg. It was bleeding. She was a good worker and did not want to get into trouble for hurting herself or not doing her work. Instead of telling her supervisor or anyone she was hurt, she went to the restroom to tend to her leg. She made a bandage to cover the cut and stop the bleeding. Then she continued working and finished her shift.When Miranda got home from work, the makeshift bandage on her leg was soaked with blood. She was worried because the bleeding did not stop. She showed her mom and dad the cut, and they took her to the emergency room for medical treatment.The doctor closed the cut with ten stitches and told Miranda to limit her activities for three days. She needed to report her injury to her supervisor, but she was afraid she would be in trouble or be fired for making a mistake and getting hurt. She also worried that she could be fired for not telling anyone sooner about her injury. This job meant a lot to her, and she needed it to save for college.Miranda was not aware of some important things about workplace safety.First, there are laws to protect teenagers from hazardous jobs. Second, she has worker rights and responsibilities. Safety training is required, and she should report any injuries at work to her supervisor. Third, employers have workplace responsibilities, and one is to keep employees safe.After Miranda told her supervisor what happened, the company was able to fill out the required paperwork for retail accidents and workplace injuries. She continued working, but when she stocked shelves, the boxes were opened for her.This post was used with permission from the NIOSH Science Blog.

The convenience of self-checkout has made the service increasingly popular among customers in recent years. Retailers also take advantage of the self-checkout technology to reduce labor costs and speed up the checkout process.Unfortunately, this convenient option is popular among genuine customers and fraudsters alike.The seemingly easy process presents many fraud-related vulnerabilities and can impact the bottom line of many retail businesses. Problems like sweethearting, tag-switching, and operational losses can be difficult to detect if retailers don’t adequately supervise the area with associates and technologies.- Sponsor – Through interviews with dozens of shoplifters with recent self-checkout theft experiences, I explored their shoplifting behaviors, methods, and the thought process behind why they chose to leverage this method to conduct theft. In addition, I investigated the impact of self-checkout associates and how their engagement with the customers would impact the shoplifting experience of offenders.Why Self-Checkout Theft?The main reason offenders leverage this theft option is because they felt self-checkout theft is easier to get away with, either through prior experiences or established rationales.There are several contributing factors to why offenders believe self-checkout theft is easier to get away with. Almost all offenders I interviewed indicated they use self-checkout for shoplifting because they receive less attention from both employees and other customers.Some offenders indicated that if they ever got caught, they could always say they’d accidentally or inadvertently took the items, been distracted during checkout, or misused the technology due to its complexity. Furthermore, several offenders are under the impression that self-checkout theft is harder to prosecute because it’s hard to prove the intent behind the taking of unpaid items. The psychology behind shoplifting using a machine is rather interesting; some offenders confessed that because they are interacting with a machine rather than a human being, psychologically, they felt less guilty about stealing.During the interviews, I explored the reasons why some offenders target specific stores. Some feedback is rather sedentary and cannot be acted on, such as the omnipresence and proximity of the brand, size of the store, or the variety of products a retail chain carries. However, many offenders identified lack of employee oversight as the biggest opportunity retailers can act upon to reduce theft opportunities at self-checkouts. In addition, some offenders reported that outdate technologies and lack of consequences for shoplifting can precipitate more shoplifting incidents.Role of EmployeesWhen asked to identify loss prevention technologies in the self-checkout areas, many offenders interviewed recognized the associates as a deterrent before perceiving the surrounding technologies. Some offenders even reported that an attentive self-checkout associate is more effective at deterring theft than advanced technologies. Needless to say, self-checkout associates play a crucial role in deterring shoplifting.One offender even commented on the importance of an attentive associate in deterring shoplifting: “A lot of stealing got by because of lazy employees—employees are not paying attention, or are on their phones. It’s all about the employees. If the store has employees who are more attentive, then self-checkout theft would be hard.”As previously mentioned, a majority of the offenders admitted to intentionally using self-checkout services to avoid employee oversight. Therefore, increased associate supervision at self-checkout areas can help a store mitigate theft.However, there is a fine balance between the level of engagement associates should provide and its effectiveness in deterring shoplifting. In general, there are two categories of thoughts from the offenders. On one hand, some offenders suggested that employee engagement and assistance during the checkout process would discourage from stealing.Offender 2 said: “Employee engagement would deter me from stealing because that kind of lets me know that I’m being watched. Even if they just say, ‘Is there something I could help you with?’ or ‘Do you need any help today?’ It’s a lot easier to shoplift from a store when employees are not as engaging.”On the other hand, some offenders suggested that self-checkout associates do not necessarily have to be engaging to deter shoplifters; rather, they just need to be aware of the overall checkout process. As a matter of fact, these offenders even indicated it might be helpful if the employee is simply overseeing the area, rather than engaging with customers, as some offenders intentionally wait for moments when employees are assisting other customers so that they may shoplift without the risk of drawing attention.Offender 3 said: “You have an extra set of eyes on you, so you’re less likely to slide an item covered by another item.”Regardless of level of engagement the self-checkout associates seek to provide, the main force of deterrence is attentive self-checkout associates who pay attention to customers and their surroundings. Moreover, employee training can be crucial in combating self-checkout theft. Educating associates on suspicious activities and red flags indicators and then engage with the would-be shoplifters could enhance the overall effectiveness of customer service at self-checkout.The LPRC continue to help retailers shaping strategies to maximize convenience minimizing costs and losses through the SmartCheckout Centers of Excellence.Check out the video below to see clips from actual offender interviewers.

FreeRTOS (RTOS==Real Time Operating System) is a miniature operating system that is quite popular used in devices that require minimal processing and minimal built-in software functionality for performing simple tasks. FreeRTOS is used to enable functionality in anything from specialized lightbulbs to motion detectors.Amazon is following a Microsoft long-time playbook technique of “embrace and extend” with their recent announcement of “Amazon FreeRTOS”. They have selected a popular free operating system and extended it in a way that makes using it alongside of their products very compelling.By enabling FreeRTOS for IoT, Amazon is creating a low-cost IoT cloud-connected platform for integrating simple devices.Amazon is making it easy for devices using FreeRTOS to be able to connect to the cloud, effectively allowing the device to become an IoT-enabled device and to then to transmit and receive data from the cloud using AWS services. It is a single platform that can provide a consistent approach to tough questions like security, deployment and maintenance.Amazon said that “Amazon FreeRTOS closes the gap by enabling simplified, secure connectivity to a local gateway such as an edge device running AWS Greengrass or to the Cloud like AWS IoT Core.”
Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… jon mitchell Have you ever purchased a deal that went unused? Let us know in the comments. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts DealsGoRound says it has uncovered a $577 million opportunity in the daily deals space. Nearly 22% of deals purchased from Groupon, LivingSocial, BuyWithMe and elsewhere go unredeemed according to a survey from Rice University. This represents a huge secondary market for re-selling deals, which is precisely what DealsGoRound does. To illustrate the opportunity here, DealsGoRound has released the following infographic breaking down what Petersen calls the “cycle” of daily deals.Filling a VoidDealsGoRound CEO Kris Petersen says that deals are going unused across all categories, from food and drink to fitness to travel. “We’re really filling a void where [the daily deal vendors] are leaving off,” Petersen says, “and not because they don’t care,” but because it’s a necessarily low priority for them.Meanwhile, these companies are selling so many deals that the average customer is stuck with six at a time, and one or more of those goes unspent. Its value vanishes. So consumed with selling new deals and attracting new customers, coupon sites are apparently leaving hundreds of millions of dollars, and lots of new customers for their clients, on the table.Estimating the Size of the MarketAs far as the size of the table, whether DealsGoRound’s $577 million is a reasonable number, it’s worth doing another back-of-the-envelope calculation. Respondents to the Rice survey reported that 21.7% of deals went unfulfilled. The study only covered 23 U.S. markets, and it had a 27% response rate, meaning that the non-respondents could be significantly different from the respondents, which would leave skewed results. One possible bias would be that dissatisfied customers could be more likely to voluntarily respond to a survey.Nevertheless, the Rice study points to surveys in different markets that had similar response rates and showed comparable results. Since DealsGoRound finds that people sit on six unredeemed deals at a time, let’s assume it’s reasonable that 21.7% of those – about one – goes unredeemed each time. Granting that, we could apply it to estimates of the size of the daily deals market. Wall Street analysts estimated the size of the global daily deals market in 2011 to be almost $3.7 billion, and 21.7% of that would be over $800 million. Assuming that’s a rather bullish estimate – and allowing for some response bias in the Rice survey, $500 million or so in unredeemed deals sounds plausible. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting The Secondary MarketDealsGoRound is among a handful of sites picking up the pieces of this secondary market, including Lifesta, CoupRecoup and Sell My Deal. There’s an Australian site called redealize with international ambitions. And there’s a site called dealigee, which is owned by a Chicago-based company. Chicago is Groupon country, and DealsGoRound hails from there as well. But Petersen has grown his startup from a Craisglist-style free-for-all into a PayPal-powered, feature-rich marketplace serving 128 cities in the U.S. and Canada. The pot in 2011 is up to is $577 million or so, so the race is on for the secondary daily deals market.Good for Business?We’ve written before about the open question of whether daily deals are good for small businesses, and Petersen regularly encounters the criticism that some businesses depend on deals going unredeemed to keep from breaking the bank. “Businesses would prefer for those 21.7% of people to show up,” Petersen says, because that’s their opportunity to up-sell customers and build loyalty.“If people are [offering daily deals] in hopes that the breakage [revenue] is how they make their money,” Petersen says, “then I think they’re sorely mistaken about the value they’re getting out of this whole industry.”Disgruntled Business Owners The study from Rice found that 55.5% of businesses surveyed made money on their daily deals promotions, 17.9% broke even, and 26.6% of businesses lost money. Keep in mind that 21.7% of their deals go unredeemed, which means the businesses pocket the money.Almost 80% of customers who redeemed deals were new customers, but only 36% of them spent beyond the face value of the deal, and the study says that only 20% of customers returned to purchase something at full price.It would take a much bigger study to be precise, but the margins on these deals are thin, and significantly increasing the amount of deals that get cashed in would reduce their value for businesses even more. The Rice study found that just under half (48%) of surveyed businesses would definitely run a second daily deal promotion.The study also found no significant performance differences between the various daily deal sites. No Groupons or LivingSocials stuck out from the pack as far as how well their marketing paid off for their client businesses.Wasted Deals Are Wasted DealsBut with hundreds of millions in deals just vanishing, Petersen thinks the consumer is getting hurt, and that hurts businesses, too, ultimately. Getting stuck with a deal could lead consumers never to buy one again. By enabling consumers to resell unused deals, Petersen believes DealsGoRound helps keep the daily deals business cycle in motion.To illustrate the secondary market opportunity, DealsGoRound has produced this infographic (see below) with their own data as well as data from Mob Manager, the Rice University study and Local Offer Network.
