Birthday wishes pour in for Mandela

first_img18 July 2008Messages of congratulations, tributes and good wishes are pouring in from home and abroad, from ordinary people and influential leaders alike, for former South African president Nelson Mandela on his 90th birthday.President Thabo Mbeki extended his message on behalf of the entire nation to the internationally revered statesman and former political prisoner on Friday.“We are proud as South Africans that Mr Mandela and his generation of fighters embraced with both passion and reason the mission that history imposed on them and more than met the demands that it enjoined them to fulfil,” he said in Pretoria on Friday.Mbeki said South Africans glowed in the light of fame because the country stood on the shoulders of icons such as Mandela.Harmony and equalityHe recalled Mandela’s statement at the opening of the defence case in the Rivonia Trial in the Pretoria Supreme Court on 20 April 1964: “I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities,” Mandela said back then.“It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”Mbeki urged the current generation to return to the question of their mission and how to fulfil it, as conditions and circumstances evolved, much in the same way that Mandela’s generation had to discover and fulfil its mission.“Finding answers to this question simultaneously as we celebrate his birthday is perhaps the biggest present we can give to Nelson Mandela,” said Mbeki. “Many happy returns – ukhule ukhokhobe!”An inspiration to allIn her birthday message to Mandela, Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said he has been a true inspiration to her, to the country, its leaders, citizens and mostly, young South Africans.“He has lived true to the principle of ‘be the change you want to see in the world’,” Mlambo-Ngcuka said.Director General in the Office of the Presidency Frank Chikane said that as the first president of a non-racial, non-sexist and democratic South Africa, Mandela had laid a solid foundation for the emergence of democratic government that continued to serve the nation with pride.Apart from wishing Mandela on his birthday, Chikane said the Cabinet was also congratulating him on his 10th wedding anniversary.“You have left us a rich legacy from which government abundantly draws inspiration as it works for reconstruction and development, economic prosperity and national unity,” Chikane said. “Siyavuyisana nawe. Sikunqwenelela usuku olumnandi kunye nosapho lwakho, (We congratulate you. We wish you a happy birthday with your family), Happy Birthday Madiba.”An ‘icon of humanity’Fifa President Sepp Blatter also added the organisation’s message of good wishes, which includes a special birthday video message to pay tribute to Mandela, an “icon of humanity”, which will be aired by the South African Broadcasting Corporation and can also be viewed at the Fifa website.“Today, the football worldwide will celebrate the 90th birthday of Nelson Mandela, an extraordinary man who has dedicated his life to the promotion of human rights and democracy,” Blatter said.2010 Fifa World Cup Local Organising Committee CEO Danny Jordaan said the number “90” was usually synonymous with the beautiful game of football. “Today, however, the number 90 is synonymous with just one thing – Nelson Mandela turning the ripe old age of 90,” he said.Jordaan recalled how Mandela reacted when South Africa won the right to host the world cup. “With tears welling up in his eyes, Madiba declared that he ‘feels like a young man of fifteen’,” he said, adding “His has been a life of hardships, yet he showed no signs of bitterness, anger of hatred towards he captors who imprisoned him for 27 years.”Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

EPA violated personal privacy of farmers, ranchers

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest What was once a strongly held opinion in many farm circles is now an official ruling from the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. The Environmental Protection Agency has violated the personal privacy of tens of thousands of farmers and ranchers, according to a unanimous ruling issued by the Court this month.The ruling in American Farm Bureau Federation and National Pork Producers Council vs. EPA concerned the federal agency’s 2013 release to three environmental groups of a vast compilation of spreadsheets containing personal information about farmers and ranchers who raise livestock and poultry in 29 states. The case also related to similar personal information from farmers and ranchers in seven additional states that had yet to be released. The information included the names of farmers, ranchers and sometimes other family members, home addresses, GPS coordinates, telephone numbers and emails. EPA claimed that it was required to disclose the information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).“This was an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy by a federal agency in violation of law,” said Ellen Steen, AFBF General Counsel. “The court’s decision is a vindication of the right of farm families to control their own personal information. Farmers and ranchers have a strong privacy interest in their personal information, including their home address, even when they live and work on the farm.”Farm families usually live on the farm and the court took note that EPA’s disclosures in this case could facilitate unwanted contact and harassment of farmers and ranchers by the FOIA requestors and others. According to Steen, “this case assures us that individuals still have a privacy interest in their personal information. The fact that government agencies may have that information and even store it on the Internet does not eliminate the individual’s privacy interest.”According to the court, “EPA’s release of the complete set of data on a silver platter, so to speak, basically hands to the requesters a comprehensive database of their own, whatever their motives might be.”“EPA now has to ‘recall’ all of the personal information it unlawfully released, but unfortunately that information has now been in the hands of the FOIA requestors for three years, and many feel that the damage is done,” Steen said. “AFBF will continue to work to ensure that personal information about farmers and ranchers is not disclosed by EPA.”last_img read more

Semerad versus Semerad

We were so strong together that some people wanted us to be on different teams to make [the tournament] competitive. But our parents didn’t want that to happen, so they’d tell us to just keep the game close and win it in the end.”Before joining San Beda, Anthony estimates they were part of 15 champion teams at the age-group level in Australia.ADVERTISEMENT “Their work ethic makes them special players,” says Boyet Fernandez, who coached the twins at San Beda for two seasons. “They’re very competitive, they’re both winners. At the same time, they’re very protective of each other. I’m happy for both of them and for what they’ve achieved [in their careers].”Change in lifestyleWhen Anthony was drafted by GlobalPort and David was selected by Barako Bull in the PBA three years ago, the twins braced themselves for a drastic change in lifestyle.“We were in different teams, so we had different schedules,” says Anthony, who, like David, also earned a Business Marketing degree at San Beda.That same year, the twins also decided to live separately.Anthony describes the feeling as similar to breaking up with a girlfriend. “We’ve always done things together,” says Anthony. “David cooks for me and I cook for him and we do the laundry together. But it kind of worked out in the end.”Known more for his defense, David has gone on to win four titles with San Miguel. Anthony, a sweet-shooting forward, is still in search of a first crown in the pro league. “I knew his (Anthony’s) time was going to come,” says David. “I’m blessed to have four championships and I’m happy that Anthony is here to experience the finals.”Because they look after each other, Anthony says David gives him a small piece of the championship bonuses he gets, so “it sorts of levels things out.”The series has not changed the way the twins go about their days together. They still go out to dinner after the games, work out together and play one-on-one matches. Just don’t ask any of them to reveal his team’s gameplan in these finals.“I asked him one time and he said, ‘Sorry mate, I can’t tell you,’” says Anthony. “He tried to ask me and I told him the same thing.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. This show of brotherly affection is nothing new for Filipino-Australian twins David and Anthony Semerad, who were both on the floor in the waning seconds of TNT KaTropa’s series-tying 102-97 win over the San Miguel Beermen.But considering the fact that they’re playing for teams looking to extend their winning tradition in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup, the gesture is a welcome sidebar to what has been a highly physical series between the flagship teams of the San Miguel Corp. conglomerate and the group controlled by tycoon Manny V. Pangilinan.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“Whatever is on the court, we leave it there,” says David. “Off the court, we’re family.”When TNT and San Miguel arranged the championship duel, the 26-year-old Anthony and David also made history in the 42-year-old league by becoming the first twins to go up against each other at this stage of the tournament.
