Strap in this Easter, urges emergency service provider: The use of safety belts in motor vehicles is without doubt responsible for saving the lives of countless South Africans every year. Those planning to travel by roads over the upcoming holiday period should therefore always make a point of wearing a seatbelt, urges emergency medical services provider Netcare 911. “A number of studies have shown that, in the case of a vehicle accident, injuries are prevented and lives saved when adults and children are properly restrained,” asserts Shalen Ramduth, Netcare 911 general manager of national operations. “Despite this, all too many South Africans continue to drive without wearing seatbelts, and, perhaps of still greater concern, many fail to ensure that their children are safely buckled up.” “Thousands of South Africans are killed or injured on our roads each year. These fatalities could be reduced considerably if all drivers took heed of some basic safety advice, such as ensuring that all vehicle occupants wear safety belts.” Seatbelts save lives Ramduth explains that the principle behind the use of car safety belts for adults and safety seats for children comes down to basic physics: a vehicle that moves forward at a constant speed and then comes to a dead stop, will result in any unfastened objects being propelled forward with enormous force and at the same speed that the vehicle had been moving. “Fitted safety belts and child restraints absorb the energy caused by a rapid deceleration, which usually occurs during a motor vehicle accident, and also considerably reduces the risk of occupants being ejected from the vehicle,” he adds. René Grobler, who heads up Netcare Milpark Hospital’s Netcare Trauma Injury Prevention (TIP) programme, an awareness and educational project aimed at reducing the incidence of traumatic injuries among South Africans, agrees that seatbelts can afford a significant measure of protection to the occupants of a vehicle . . .
The Northern Areas Football Association and SPAR Eastern Cape have joined forces to add a fresh dimension to the 43rd Nafa Easter tournament that takes place in Port Elizabeth from March 25 to 28. In coming on board for the first time, SPAR are fulfilling a commitment to support the community in a tournament which was established in 1973, with 16 teams, and has grown to include 78 teams in the men's, women's and junior categories. At the launch, tournament director Valentine Brink said they were very happy to have the retailer as their sponsors for the first time. "We are certainly hoping to make this a long-term partnership and we are all set for another top-class weekend of soccer," said Brink. SPAR marketing director Abri Swart said they were keen to back the Easter event as part of their ongoing commitment to support the community. "We have received fantastic feedback about the tournament and we are hoping to add value to what already exists." The sponsors also want to provide a boost for junior players to get them involved in sporting activity, and this is reflected in the fact that 46 teams have entered. "We were introduced to the tournament by Gelvandale SUPERSPAR owner Craig Herman and, being a community brand, we felt we needed to get behind the tournament and the community," said Swart. "With the problems schools have been facing with a certain amount of violence, we want to try to get the kids off the street and give them a chance to be part of this." Champions Shamrocks will be back to defend their title, but Brink said he expected the tournament to be wide open, with a number of sides capable of figuring in the final reckoning. Besides the juniors, 28 teams will contest the men's competition, and there are four sides in the women's section. Brink was the brainchild behind the tournament after he attended a similar event hosted by Callies in Durban in the 1970s. "When I saw that concept, I said we needed the same in PE . . .
Road users urged to stay safe and alert over busy holiday time: The first school holidays of the year coupled with two consecutive long weekends signal a busy time on our roads in the coming weeks, but travellers can take comfort in the knowledge that Netcare 911 is ready to provide emergency medical care where the need arises. “Drawing on our experience from previous years, we know that this is a particularly busy time on our roads which is, unfortunately, often accompanied by tragic road accidents,” says Netcare 911’s general manager of national operations, Shalen Ramduth. “Every motorist has a role to play in making South Africa’s roads safer over this time. By following reasonable safety precautions and courteous driving behaviour, it is possible to reduce the number of accidents and ensure that more people reach their destinations and return safely after their holidays.” Driver fatigue and drunk driving are two major contributors to road accidents, and both are fully preventable. “Drivers need to consider the importance of being mentally alert and in good physical condition when embarking on a road trip. They should also consider that alcohol consumed the night before could still impair their driving ability the following morning,” Ramduth cautions. “One of the difficulties about alcohol is that it often creates a sense of confidence, so that people under the influence often mistakenly believe that they are fully in control and able to drive. This is one of the most dangerous things about alcohol, because it can stimulate people to take unnecessary risks without them realising that their judgment and coordination are impaired.” Apart from being rested and alert, drivers should also ensure that their vehicle is roadworthy and equipped with a spare tyre in good repair, basic tools, a reflective triangle and first aid kit. “It is also advisable to do some research to obtain current information about the route that you are planning to take, . . .
FNB NMMU-Madibaz coach David Maidza has delivered a plain message to his Varsity Cup rugby team – beat UCT on Monday or face the risk of being involved in a relegation battle. Both teams are stuck at the bottom of the log, having suffered four losses from four games, and the losers will face the bleak prospect of relegation. The teams square off at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, with the match kicking off at 12.45pm. While the Madibaz produced arguably their most disappointing performance of the season against Pukke on Monday, Maidza said the players had acknowledged their mistakes and were fired up to deliver. "There is a sense of urgency in the team because I can defend us losing having put in a lot of effort, as demonstrated by previous losses, but the Pukke loss did not have that fight in it. "The boys have put their hands up and acknowledged their mistakes and we are excited to go back on Monday to showcase our true potential." While the pressure is building for both teams, Maidza said the Madibaz would not deviate from their game plan and their objective to play as a team, while identifying the need to be more clinical in certain areas. "Our aim is to go out and play as a team. We have done that in previous games against UJ and Maties, and for most of the match against Shimlas. "The desire and the effort to play for the team is what we have to get right first. "We also identified that we were not patient enough when we got into the opposition's 22m area. "We need to be more accurate here and defend more vigorously for longer periods." As the teams play to restore their pride, it will be a case of trying to play constructive rugby, while Maidza said they also needed to seize their opportunities when they arose. They know time is running out with only three matches left. Following the game against UCT, they play Tukkies in Cape Town on March 24 and finish off against CUT in Cape Town on March 28.

This Johannesburg-based opportunity will see the successful candidate gain hands-on and significant practical experience, as they work closely with the ACT team on their Scholarships Programme between May and October 2016. ACT is seeking a young graduate with a keen interest in arts administration and the performing arts. The internship will offer training that will build upon the intern’s theoretical knowledge in an applied setting, which will contrast theory with practice. The internship is designed to refine the writing, verbal and analytical skills of the intern, while fostering a sense of professionalism. A strong work ethic and industry best practice will also be imparted on the chosen graduate. “In addition to gaining valuable relevant experience, the internship is a steppingstone to establishing a career in the arts. The networking skills and access to information and knowledge hold great potential for an eager young arts administrator,” says Pieter Jacobs, the Chief Executive Officer of ACT. Throughout this six-month long opportunity, the intern will be challenged to contemplate matters relating to project implementation, logistics, financial management, marketing, monitoring and evaluation, data collection, analysis and reporting. These invaluable skills will help separate the intern from their peers, both on paper and in practical application. The funding from the National Lotteries Commission (NLC) will ensure the intern isn’t distracted by the need to make an income outside of the ACT offices, enabling them to fully immerse themselves into the internship and all it has to offer.
