From jiggy bots to satellites for South African girls

first_img17 June 2014A group of about 20 girls from various schools in Cape Town spent this year’s Youth Day, on 16 June, building jiggy bots – tiny robots whose movements can be controlled.They were taking part in the first of a series of workshops that have been set up as an introduction to the world of electronics. The workshops will culminate in a week-long session to construct Africa’s first private satellite. The satellite will be sent to the Mojave Desert in California for launch in early 2016.The project is run by the Meta Economic Development Organisation (Medo), which hopes to build up girls’ technical skills before they matriculate. The company was motivated to launch the programme, focused on science, technology, engineering and maths, by the shortage of technical skills in the country.“The reality is, half the young women in this room, when they matriculate, are not going to have formal jobs,” Medo chief executive Judi Sandrock told The Daily Maverick. “We have to start a lot earlier.”Science and technology is for girls tooSandrock said that in 2014, only 7.5% of South Africa’s matric students passed maths with 60% and over as their overall mark for the subject. For physical science, the figure was even lower. This could lead to a big problem.Asked whether science was only for boys, participants responded in the negative. “Jeez, that’s not true,” said Grade 12 student Ovaya Mandlakhe, who goes to Matthew Goniwe Memorial High School in Khayelitsha. “At my school, girls are better [at science] than boys.”After matriculating, Ovaya would like to study medicine and become a doctor.“Anyone can do anything! There’s no such thing that boys are better than girls,” said Imaan Shaik of South Peninsula High, in Diep River.It’s aliveBuilding the robots fuelled the girls’ thirst for knowledge. “It’s amazing to see how all these bits come together to create something so technical and amazing,” said Siddiqah Latief of Pelican Park High School, near Zeekoevlei. She said she had started to love science and would like to build a career in the field.“I never thought building things could be this interesting,” said Nina-Rose Clarke, from Pinelands High School in Pinelands. “I am loving this experience. It’s so exciting to be exposed to more than just drawing and studying ideas. Constructing stuff is so much better.”A race to cap the dayA race of jiggy bots ended the workshop. Some moved in a straight line, while others staggered around. But in the end, Ovaya’s bot, named “Junior”, was victorious. “It was a shock it was so fast,” she said.Sources: News24Wire and The Daily Mavericklast_img read more

Scrunchie Hair Extension Curly Up Do In Our Famous Ash Blonde Mix – Very nice either for wedding or formal

first_img Pretty hair extension adding fullness. I have very thin hair so does not stay in that well. I’ve recently changed my hair colour from blonde to ash blonde so this was a bit of a minefield with matching the colour. How lucky was i, first order and it’s a brilliant colour match to my own hair. Be warned though, i had a card in mine that said due to hygiene issues, these cannot be returned. The scrunchie ‘hair’ length is good, however i would have liked it to be a little more bulky and a little curlier like my older ones. The stretch on the elastic could also do with being a little more stretchy so that it can be easily wrapped around my own hair 2-3 times. I have thick hair and struggled at first with being wrapped twice, wrapping once was too loose. The 4* rather than 5* rating is as a result of the elastic stretch and the bulk issue however, i’ll be buying some more once i’ve gotten used to using it and my new colour. I have very thin hair so does not stay in that well. This was excellent ,done the job ?. Did what it was purchased for. Very beautiful, looks perfect on my hair , i am very happy with it.

Panchayat polls: A setback likely for BJD

first_imgAt the end of the fifth and last phase of panchayat polls on Tuesday, it became clear that Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s Biju Janata Dal has lost its supremacy in rural Odisha, suffering a severe jolt in the western region.In its fourth consecutive term in power, the BJD has for the first time faced serious challenge not from the Congress but from its one-time ally, the Bharatiya Janata Party. The shock to the ruling party has come while it was trying to strengthen its position by celebrating the birth centenary of late Biju Patnaik after whom the party has been named.Before enforcement of the model code of conduct, Mr. Patnaik had visited almost all the districts, announcing new schemes and laying foundation stones for new projects in an attempt to beat anti-incumbency. A number people from rival parties as well as popular actors were inducted into the BJD to exhibit the party’s growing popularity in the run-up to the polls.The ruling BJD had also tried to whip up popular sentiments by raising the Mahanadi water dispute with Chhattisgarh by organising protests and Jal Satyagraha.Although the results of the rural polls have not been formally announced, going by reports reaching the Capital city, it appears that the BJD had lost ground in over 100 Zilla Parishad constituencies. Top BJD leaders too have failed to prevent the BJP from winning in their strongholds. It seems that Mr. Patnaik’s pre-poll announcements and public mobilisation on the Mahanadi issue had had little impact on voters. The BJP, on the other hand, achieved spectacular success by intensifying its campaign when the BJD was bugged by anti-incumbency, and the Congress, the main opposition in State Assembly, remained a divided house.The saffron party is likely to cross the 300 mark by increasing its strength from a measly 36 of the total 851 Zilla Parishad seats in the last panchayat polls in 2012.The BJP has not only achieved substantial electoral gains in the western region of the State by defeating both the BJD and the Congress nominees, it has also been able to make inroads into the coastal region where the BJD was strong all these years.The BJD, which won 651 seats in 2012, is set to get restricted to 400-odd seats with the Congress suffering a major setback. The party, which has been pushed to the third position by the BJP, is set to win 50-odd seats this time as against 128 five years ago. Though the trend was not clear in all 30 districts, the BJD is likely to form Zilla Parishad in at least 14 districts, the BJP in eight and the Congress in two districts as happened in 2012. The BJP had not been able to form council in any district last time.The interior districts where the BJP performed unexpectedly well this time include Kalahandi, Balangir, Sambalpur, Deogarh, Malkangiri and Mayurbhanj. The party had strong presence in these areas during its nine-year-long partnership in the State government from 2000 to 2009.Voter turnout The final results will be declared by the State Election Commission on February 25. The initial outcome, however, have left the BJD shocked, the BJP euphoric and the Congress depressed. All these parties have already started contemplating about adopting new strategy to regain lost ground and consolidate their position in future polls. The highest voter turnout of 77% was recorded in the last phase of the polls on Tuesday, surpassing the turnout in the previous four phases. Giving details of the fifth phase polling held in 150 Zilla Parishad seats spread over 26 of the total 30 districts, the Election Commission said Subarnapur district recorded the highest turnout at 88% and Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s home district Ganjam saw the lowest at 67%.The results of the elections for the posts of sarpanches and ward members, and results for panchayat samity members and Zilla Parishad members will be announced on February 23 and 25 respectively by the Block Development Officers-cum-Election Officers.last_img read more
