Zenani Campaign: safer roads for kids

first_img2 May 2012A campaign to reduce the number of children killed and injured in road accidents, while honouring the memory of Nelson Mandela’s great-granddaughter Zenani, was launched in New York on Wednesday.Zenani Mandela was tragically killed in a car crash ahead of the 2010 Fifa World Cup, just two days after her 13th birthday.The Zenani Campaign, led by her mother Zoleka Mandela and grandmother Zindzi Mandela, will contribute to the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety, which aims to improve the level of protection for children on roads mainly in developing countries.The campaign will also form part of Mandela Day, which is marked across the world on 18 July each year to inspire people to take action to change the world for the better and, in doing so, to build a global movement for good.Road casualties ‘not just a tragic fact’At the launch in New York City on Wednesday, the Mandela family was joined by South African Transport Minister Sibusiso Ndebele and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.“In common with many people, I used to think that road casualties were just a tragic fact of life, about which nothing could be done,” Zindzi Mandela said. “I did not ask how we can prevent this, what actions can we take. But so much can be done to save young lives.“We can, and we must do much more to protect our children,” Mandela said. “Support the Zenani Campaign. Demand protection for children on the roads, and let us ensure that in future, other families do not have to suffer the pain that my family has suffered.”‘Think Pedestrian’Also speaking at the launch, Ndebele said that, at the current rate, road crashes would be the number one killer of children aged between 5 and 14 in Africa by 2015, outstripping Malaria and HIV.“Pedestrians alone account for nearly 40 percent of road fatalities in our country annually,” he said.Two weeks ago, the South African Department of Transport, in partnership with Eqstra Fleet Management and Logistics, the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the UN, officially launched the “Think Pedestrian” campaign, aimed at intensive road safety awareness and education programmes.Mayor Bloomberg said that almost 1.3-million people were killed and millions more injured on the world’s roads every year, and that many of those victims were children.“There’s a strong and growing network of organisations working around the world to implement proven interventions including tougher speeding, seat-belt and helmet rules, and an increase in safe school crossings and more footpaths,” Bloomberg said.“This campaign is yet another positive step forward in efforts to address this leading cause of death and save more lives.”‘We’ll never get Zenani back’Supermodel Naomi Campbell, who had a close relationship with Zenani, said: “There are far too many children being killed – 1 000 every day. The family will never get over the pain of her loss, and we’ll never get Zenani back.“But she was such a positive little girl that she would have wanted to make a difference,” Campbell said. “In memory of Zenani Mandela, I support this campaign. Lives can be saved, and we need action right now.”F1 star Lewis Hamilton also gave his support: “Every three minutes a young child dies on the world’s roads. I’m supporting the Zenani Campaign and the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety, because we need action now to prevent more tragedies.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Adityanath cracks whip on latecomers

first_imgFollowing reports of Noida Authority staff allegedly not reaching office on time, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday sought the employee details of both Noida and Greater Noida Authorities.Mr. Adityanath also ordered that 73 employees of the Noida Authority, who had not been marking themselves present on biometric machine, be marked absent for the corresponding days. He also ordered that their salaries be deducted.Noida and Greater Noida Authority CEO Deepak Agarwal confirmed this. “The Chief Minister has asked for details such as the employees’ income, assets, ranks, tenure, departments, etc. While 40% of the staff members in the Greater Noida Authority have submitted their details, employees of the Noida Authority are yet to file the same,” said Mr. Agarwal.Plugging corruptionSoon after assuming office on March 19, Mr. Adityanath had directed Ministers and top officials to provide details of their income and assets within 15 days. He had said rooting out corruption in government offices was his main agenda. However, a majority of the officials failed to adhere to the deadline of April 7.Mr. Agarwal further said that to improve work culture in the authorities, he had asked the employees to mark their attendance on biometric machines. Failure to comply with the order would amount to strict action, he added.The Noida Authority had on March 23 installed biometric machines to crack down on employees who would reach office late. The Noida Authority’s offices are located in sectors 6, 5, 19 and 39. According to rules, the employees must reach office by 9:30 a.m. and not leave before 5 p.m. The two authorities work for five days a week. ‘30% staff absent’“During an inspection, I found that around 30% of the staff was absent. Whoever reaches office after 9:30 a.m. will be marked absent,” said Mr. Agarwal.Earlier, every employee had to sign on an attendance sheet. However, many would sign the sheet in the month-end. With the introduction of biometric attendance, the flaw was exposed. Explanation sought“We have also sought an explanation from those who were not present at 9:30 a.m.,” the CEO said.“If they will fail to furnish a satisfactory reply, we will take action against them. If absent employees are repeatedly absent, we will take departmental action against them,” he added.last_img read more

(RPTG, CORRECTING WORD IN PARA 2)

first_imgNetmagic to invest Rs 2k-cr to set up two data centers by 2018New Delhi, Apr 17 (PTI) Data centre company Netmagic plans to invest about Rs 2,000 crore to set up two new facilities, one each in Mumbai and Bengaluru, by April 2018, apart from increasing its headcount to meet growing business.The Mumbai-based company operates nine (rpt) nine data centres in the country across Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi-NCR and Bengaluru.”When we launched our last projects in Bengaluru and Mumbai, we thought it would take 5-6 years to fill their capacity but within six months of the launch of Mumbai data centre, we have started to build two new facilities. We are seeing demand beyond our expectation,” Netmagic Executive Director and President Sunil Gupta told PTI.He said there is huge demand from the e-commerce sector and the launch of 4G services will fuel demand for videos and high-definition content.”We have decided to invest about Rs 2,000 crore to set up two new data centres to meet the demand. One will be in Bengaluru with 3,000 racks capacity and other will be in Mumbai with 4,000 racks capacity,” Gupta said.He added that Netmagic plans to increase its headcount from about 1,100 at present to 1,400 by March 2017.Netmagic had in October 2015 launched its data centre in Mumbai, which it says is the largest such facility in the country.”About 60 per cent of the data centre capacity has been contracted to clients and we expect to contract rest of the 40 per cent in other six months,” Gupta said.advertisementThe company has dedicated more than 80 per cent of its capacity to the e-commerce sector.”We are also aware of what global majors are talking about with the Indian economy growing. There are Japanese companies who have keen interest in India, especially in infrastructure space.”We see huge demand coming from them in near future. Therefore, we need to be ready with capacity,” Gupta said.He said the company had earlier expected to close 2015-16 with revenue of Rs 445 crore, but exceeded the target by 20 per cent at about Rs 534 cr.
