Giants have a history and a future against Machado

first_imgSCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–Fifteen years ago, Andrew Suárez’s Broward Bulldogs took on Manny Machado’s Hialeah Chiefs in travel ball.On Saturday, Suárez’s San Francisco Giants hosted Machado’s San Diego Padres at Scottsdale Stadium.It’s been more than a decade since Suárez and Machado regularly faced each other, but that will soon change.

New open door for Zimbabweans

first_imgOrdinary Zimbabweans have been hardest hit by the deteriorating situation in their country – many now seek better fortunes in neighbouring countries. (Image: Irin News)Samson MulugetaEarlier this month South Africa announced that it would allow neighbouring Zimbabweans free, unfettered access to its border and allow Zimbabweans to stay in the county without a visa requirement for three months.Previously, South Africa deported 10 000 illegal Zimbabweans a day, severely straining its immigration services and opening the door for corruption, from the South African Embassy in Harare to immigration ports of entry and Home Affairs offices across South Africa.The South African move has been seen by analysts as an acknowledgement of the situations which many Zimbabweans find themselves in. With no end in sight to the economic and political crisis in Zimbabwe, many people will continue to cross the border to seek relief. An estimated 2 to 3-million Zimbabweans have already made South Africa their home.  Once one of Africa’s most prosperous nations with a superb educational system, Zimbabwe has spiraled into economic ruin since 2000 when President Robert Mugabe embarked on a land redistribution campaign that ground the economy to a halt. Currently, 70% of Zimbabweans rely on food aid, according to the International Monetary Fund, and battle with skyrocketing inflation and unemployment.New visa policyThe full impact of the new visa policy would not be known for months, but there has been an influx of newcomers at border crossings such as Beitbridge in Limpopo province. There have been reports of Beitbridge crossings surging from 3 000 to 7 000 daily.A Gauteng High Court ruled on 19 May 2009, that an immigrants’ centre near Musina, close to the Zimbabwe border, should be shut down due to overcrowding and unsanitary conditions. The centre was used to accommodate undocumented foreigners, most of them Zimbabweans.Up until the policy change, up to 8 000 Zimbabweans applied for asylum status in South Africa. Now, presumably, those people would no longer have to ask for asylum and would be free to cross the border whether to shop for scarce goods or to seek temporary employment.In South Africa, where the official unemployment figure stands at 34%, the issue of African immigrants fighting for resources is an explosive issue. Resentment against African immigrants and xenophobia erupted into violence last year, leading to the death of at least 62 people.However, the country’s major labour union, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), has been muted in its response to the new policy. Patrick Craven, a Cosatu spokesperson, said the union was pleased by the fact that newly legitimatised Zimbabweans would not be exploited by employers who pay them less than South Africans.“Cosatu has not taken a position on this action,” said Craven. “But in principle we are not opposed to granting legal status to Zimbabwean workers here because it stops their exploitation by unscrupulous employers and protects South African workers as well.”Southern African co-operationIn issuing the new visa policy, outgoing Home Affairs Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula said the move is an effort by South Africa to fight human trafficking, human smuggling and other cross-border crimes.South Africa has similar visa arrangements with neighbouring nations of the South African Development Community (SADC), which includes Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Lesotho and Swaziland as well as non-SADC member Mauritius.In future, the Zimbabwean departure permit, or border pass, will be accepted as a legitimate travel document, according to Mapisa-Nqakula. She added that the visa move was an effort to help rebuild the Zimbabwean economy.However, the Democratic Alliance (DA), the official opposition party, said that it was concerned about the new policy.“While the DA is not opposed in principle to the 90-day visa-waiver for Zimbabweans, we believe this policy decision has been taken without proper plans to ensure its smooth implementation,” the DA said in a statement.“Reports emerging from the Beitbridge immigration office show that it is struggling to cope with the influx of Zimbabweans seeking to enter the country. There are reportedly only nine immigration officials to process the documents of thousands of Zimbabweans.”Lawyers for Human Rights, an advocacy group in Johannesburg, welcomed the new policy, noting that Zimbabweans faced unnecessary and extreme hardship in traveling to South Africa.“This usually entailed dangerous and difficult travel via the porous border where migrants were at the mercy of smugglers, wild animals and environmental hazards,” the group said in a statement.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Why Asians Rule YouTube

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#web#YouTube A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Last June, in a panel celebrating diversity at Vidcon, the unofficial YouTubers conference, rapper Timothy DeLaGhetto suggested the main reason for his popularity on the site: He’s “an Asian guy doing normal things.” (DeLaGhetto ranks #53 with 1.4 million subscribers and 465 million total views.)“Here’s a group of people that are not traditionally represented elsewhere,” said filmmaker and musician Freddie Wong in an interview. “We didn’t have a Blaxsploitation moment, and the closest we got was Bruce Lee and Kung Fu.” Ranking #6 on the YouTube chart with 1-plus million views of each of his videos, Wong mostly makes geeky and guntastic shorts, though he recently expanded to a Web series format with Video Game High School. Fact: Asians rule YouTube. After decades of stereotypical roles as brainiacs and kung fu masters, the long underrepresented group is flexing its media muscles online. Of the top 10 personalities on YouTube, three are Asian, occupying the second, sixth, and 10th spots respectfully. The top 10 women also include three Asians.Long ostracized from mainstream television, Asians have taken advantage of YouTube’s low barrier to entry to create their own opportunities and their own characters. From rappers to sketch-comedy stars to make-up artists, they can be whatever they want. YouTube even has a Korean equivalent of TV’s Jersey Shore called K-Town, broadcast on Kevin Smith’s LOUD channel.

In fact, Hollywood directors and actors now vie to work with him or appear in his YouTube shorts.“We are [on YouTube] doing our thing and it works because we’re doing our thing,” Wong said. “We’re not trying to fulfill or reject any given stereotype. This is where our platform is, and it will be a matter of time before traditional media realizes the value of representation across demographics.” Kim Evey, a Korean-American actress who now works as a producer with Felicia Day, joined the YouTube community after seeing a viral video of two  Asians lip-syncing. She recalls only three Asians in media when she was growing up: “Connie Chung, who was a news reporter; a woman on a sitcom called Night Court; and then there was M*A*S*H. That was it if you were Asian and wanted to be an actor.” She is blown away by what is happening on YouTube today. “The fact that they do exist, and have the success that they have, is so exciting to me.”Bernie Su, a Web series writer of hit shows like The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, said “as an Asian American, I am proud and happy to see” Asians at the top of the list of popular YouTubers. “Asian Americans don’t have a lot of rolemodels” in traditional media right now, he adds.“The Asian American audience is relevant,” Su said, “and when Hollywood and advertisers realize how relevant they are, they’ll pretty much have to see Asian-American stars.” fruzsina eordogh Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

Facebook Dislikes Waze Acquisition

Reasons for the break down in discussions are not clear, but the rumor mill is claiming that Waze may not have wanted to relocate to California. Of course, maybe Waze got a better offer from one of the other companies that have been rumored to be knocking at their door: a list that once included Apple and, most recently, Google.

Rep Hughes Support local industries during upcoming Buy Michigan Week

first_img24Jul Rep. Hughes: Support local industries during upcoming Buy Michigan Week Categories: Hughes News,News State Rep. Holly Hughes today encouraged local residents to consider buying locally made products and services during Buy Michigan Week – set to run from July 28-Aug. 5.Purchasing goods and services locally leads to a positive ripple effect on the region and is a statistically proven practice that promotes small business growth, creates more jobs and strengthens state and local economies.“Agriculture, retail, summer tourism and a variety of other industries in Michigan have a profound impact on nearby communities,” said Hughes, of Montague, who serves on the House Commerce and Trade Committee. “These industries help support our communities. They provide jobs to our residents. It’s important we recognize this and help to support them with our consumer dollars when we can because some of those dollars are going directly back into the community. It’s a positive cycle that makes for a strong state.”In October, the Michigan House passed a resolution supporting “Buy Nearby” – an annual statewide promotion for shopping at local retail outlets instead of alternatives via the internet. The Buy Nearby project estimated that if Michigan residents made a concerted effort to buy locally, an additional $9 billion in economic activity would follow and nearly 74,000 jobs could be created. Up to $2.5 billion in additional wages could be cultivated through the new jobs, per the project’s report.last_img read more
