Blackwater owner thinks Ellis on his way out of PBA after continued no show

first_img“I want to sincerely thank everyone who has shown love n concern for me! Thank you!! Im Excited for what the future holds! Until we meet again!”Sy admitted that the Blackwater camp still tried to get a hold of Ellis as much as they could, to no avail.“I’ve been asking around — both MVP and SMC group, I don’t think any of the teams have shown any interest. We offered some trade but there’s no takers, so let us stay as is and let’s see what he’ll do on his own career,” he said.Ellis’ contract expired last August, and if he decides to play once more in the PBA, the Elite will retain his rights.The high-flying forward averaged 6.4 points3.4 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in his five-year run with the Gin Kings.ADVERTISEMENT “Actually I think he is on the exit already from the PBA. Otherwise, if you’re interested to play, you have no choice but to follow the trade,” he said. “So far, in the past three years I’m in the PBA, this is the first time I found a player who doesn’t report in a trade. So we won’t force the issue.”Ginebra shipped Ellis together with center Dave Marcelo to the Elite in exchange for the injured Art dela Cruz and Raymond Aguilar last August.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBack on the throneSince being dealt, he has just showed up once in the team’s practice before complaining of a kidney problem which needed hospitalization.

World-class media hub for SA

first_imgThe African Media Centre will providejournalists with all the equipment theyneed to produce quality content aboutSouth Africa.(Image: stock.xchng) The centre can accommodate brainstormingsessions, workshops, research, trainingsessions, listening sessions, webcasting,product launches and more.(Image: image library) MEDIA CONTACTS • Rami NhlapoPublicity manager, JT Communications+27 11 788 7631/2RELATED ARTICLES• Africa’s new voice • Boosting African journalism• Media awards for SA women• Broadband centre opens in SAJanine ErasmusThe newly launched JT Comms African Media Hub, located in Johannesburg, aims to boost the international profile of African arts and culture while providing a welcoming space for media professionals to work and network.Although the facility is tailored for those from the cultural industries, it’s also open to journalists and businesspeople from all other sectors.Centrally located in the quiet suburb of Craighall, in the north of Johannesburg, the multi-purpose media centre provides facilities for meetings, holding press conferences, conducting television and radio interviews and wirelessly filing completed stories.It’s also equipped for brainstorming sessions, holding workshops and conducting research, training sessions, listening sessions, webcasting, product launches and more.The centre, which is still in the last stages of being fitted with infrastructure and equipment, is a long-time vision of communications specialist Vanessa Perumal, co-partner in the wholly black- and female-owned JT Communication Solutions.“I travelled to Germany with the South African delegation that brought the Fifa World Cup here,” said Perumal, “and there I had a chance to see the German media centre, and to experience how well it worked”.Back in South Africa she was struck by the fact that there was no equivalent facility available here. Deciding not to wait until somebody else came up with the idea, and with the famous Gandhi quote – “Be the change you want to see in the world” – in her mind, she resolved to do something about it.“I want this place to be a physical hub where journalists from all over the world can feel comfortable,” she said, “and where African journalists can tell our stories our way.”The African press has long lamented the fact that overseas media houses tend to portray a very bleak picture of Africa to the world, focusing on dark and depressing topics and overlooking the many positive stories that emerge from the continent every day.Other initiatives such as the A24 media channel, launched in mid-2008 by veteran media entrepreneur Salim Amin, are planning to redress that situation.If South Africa and other African countries want to endure on the global arts stage, added Perumal, they must capture the essence of all that is good about their cultural industries, and ensure that the rest of the world knows about it.Global exposurePerumal explained that her hope was to give journalists a convenient and comfortable place to be productive, so that they would feel inspired to produce more substantial content about South Africa and the rest of the continent. The result would be more global exposure for South African and African culture.The multi-purpose media centre is equipped for brainstorming sessions, holding workshops and conducting research, training sessions, listening sessions, webcasting, product launches, and more.The centre’s launch, held in late September 2009, was attended by the local and international media community as well as local arts stalwarts such as renowned mezzo-soprano Sibongile Khumalo, poet Lebo Mashile, and storyteller Gcina Mhlophe.CEO of the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (Samro) Nick Motsatse delivered the keynote speech, and Tawana Kupe, Dean of the Faculty of Humanities at the University of the Witwatersrand, commented in his address that the innovative hub was just what the media and arts on the continent needed.Connecting with AfricaOne of the centre’s first projects was the African Arts in Dialogue, a public symposium held on 23 September 2009.Local arts academics and writers met with a delegation of cultural journalists from Senegal, Cameroon, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, to discuss ways to promote African arts on the world stage. The international contingent was also present at the media centre launch.This important task can only be achieved through communication and better understanding between local cultural journalists and their colleagues in other parts of the continent.Among the visitors – who represented film, radio, television and print genres – were Senegalese radio journalist and jazz enthusiast Michael Soumah, Cameroonian film critic Telesphore Mba Bizo, journalist and artist John Owoo from Ghana, and Kenyan writer Joseph Ngunjiri.The gathering took place at Samro’s offices. Samro is the body that administers music public performance rights in Southern Africa, and was a partner in the symposium, along with African Synergy, Marimba Media and the JT Comms media hub.Queries or comments?

Zuma congratulates India’s new Prime Minister-elect

first_img19 May 2014South African President Jacob Zuma was among the first world leaders to offer congratulations and good wishes to Indian Prime Minister-elect Narendra Modi for his party’s sweeping victory in India’s general elections.“With India under the leadership of Mr Modi, the government of South Africa looks forward to consolidating the strong bilateral political and economic relations that exist between our two sister Republics,” Zuma said in a statement on Saturday.Results released on Friday showed that Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had swept aside the long-dominant Congress party in India’s most decisive poll result in three decades, winning 282 seats to Congress’s 44 in the 543-strong Lok Sabha, or lower house of Parliament.Zuma paid tribute to outgoing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his “progressive leadership” of India, noting that Singh had played a vital role in consolidating relations between South Africa and India.South Africa and India already enjoy strong historical relations that have been formalized through various bilateral and multilateral mechanisms. The two countries are both members of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), IBSA (India, Brazil, South Africa) and G20 groupings.Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more

American Express Acquires Revolution Money: Challenges PayPal

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting American Express just announced that it plans to acquire Revolution Money for $300 million. The deal is still subject to regulatory approval. Revolution Money, which was founded by AOL’s co-founder Steve Case, launched in 2007. The company offers a number of services, including a payment and ATM card that offers discounts at participating retailers and the Revolution Money Exchange, which enables online person-to-person money transactions. It seems reasonable to assume that American Express made this acquisition to get a foothold in the online e-payment market and to challenge eBay’s PayPal.According to today’s press release, Amex hopes that this acquisition will give Revolution Money – and Amex – room to grow as it goes “head-to-head with other online and person-to-person payment providers.” Amex will put its own brand and marketing reach behind Revolution Money’s services. Chances are that Amex is mostly interested in the P2P payment system that Revolution Money has developed. It will be interesting to see what the company will do with the Revolution Money card, which, even though widely accepted, hasn’t exactly become a household name yet. Amex also plans to expand Revolution Money’s reach beyond the US.Lots of Participating Merchants – But How Many Customers?The Revolution Money card is currently accepted at about 650,000 stores in the US, including Barnes & Noble and Whole Foods. Merchants have been drawn to Revolution Money because the company charges lower fees than credit card companies. The company didn’t announce how many actual users it currently has, though just like GigaOm’s Om Malik, we still haven’t met anybody who owns a Revolution Money card. frederic lardinois Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#news#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more
