Government supports Public Protector

first_img8 July 2011 The Presidency has reiterated the government’s commitment and support to the work and office of South Africa’s Public Protector. In a statement on Thursday, the Presidency noted “with concern continued media reports that suggested the Office of the Public Protector was threatened and was being undermined. “The Public Protector has an important role to play in our constitutional democracy and should be respected and given the space to do its work,” the Presidency said. Media reports earlier this week claimed that Public Protector Thuli Madonsela would be arrested on charges of fraud, allegedly committed while she worked as a commissioner at the SA Law Commission four years ago. Madonsela denied the claims and said in a press conference on Wednesday that there were no documents showing that she had committed any fraud. The Presidency said the Public Protector, as an institution of state, should be allowed to do its work without fear or favour and without hindrance. “While the Presidency recognises that no person is above the law, any law enforcement agency established through our Constitution should be free to do its work within the framework of the law,” it said. Justice Minister Jeff Radebe has stressed that his department had made no request to the SA Police Service to investigate or act against Madonsela. “I am satisfied that the conduct of the Public Protector, in relation to what had to be investigated – whether or not there was a duty to disclose or that she was operating a profitable business entity – did not constitute a violation of any prescripts or laws,” Radebe said in a statement on Thursday. “At no point did the department, during the inquiry, report the matter externally to any law enforcement agency for criminal investigation,” Radebe said. “If at all there is any investigation against the Public Protector, the Justice Department is not a complainant.” An internal Department of Justice inquiry, launched against Madonsela after her appointment to the South African Law Reform Commission (SALRC) in 2007, had found she had not violated any prescripts or laws. “This means the inquiry is closed,” Radebe said.

Remembering Tony Woods, a Building Science Pioneer

first_imgThe industry loses one of its best-known and most respected building-performance expertsTony Woods, a building science visionary who pioneered techniques and materials for improving the performance of all types of structures, died on May 8 after a battle with cancer.A physicist by training, Woods graduated from the University of Hull (England) in 1959. In 1980 he co-founded Canam Building Envelope Specialists Inc., based in Mississauga, Ontario, and, more than a decade ago, a Canam division called Zerodraft, which manufactures building envelope improvement materials and application and testing equipment.Woods’ analytical abilities, depth of knowledge, and drive helped put him at the forefront of the systems approach to building-performance diagnostics and improvement. A tribute released this week by the Building Performance Institute notes that Woods was a mentor to many. His combination of humor and expertise made him a popular presenter at conferences and training programs offered by weatherization organizations and home performance contractors across North America.Woods made regular appearances at regional and national conferences hosted by the nonprofit educational group Affordable Comfort Inc.. He also was a favorite speaker at events staged by the Energy and Environmental Building Association, Construct Canada, Buildings X, Thermal Solutions, and the National Building Envelope Council of Canada.Tony Woods’ professional legacy will be a lasting one. As BPI points out, he was past-president of the Ontario Building Envelope Council and executive vice president of the National Energy Conservation Association and the Contractors Warranty Corporation. He also was a member of HRAI Toronto Chapter, the Construction Specification Writers Association and the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors.On April 28, ACI awarded Woods its Lifetime Achievement Award. The same day, BPI announced the inaugural winner of The Tony Woods Award for Excellence in Advancing the Home Performance Industry, a new initiative that replaces the former BPI Awards, or “Bippies.”What’s more, a paper written by Woods, “Retrofitting the Building Envelope is the Most Cost-Effective Path to Improved Building Performance,” will be included posthumously in the proceedings of the Fourth International Building Physics Conference, June 15-18, 2009 in Istanbul, Turkey.Donations may be made in memory of Tony Woods to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s “Light the Night Walk,” at www.lightthenight.org.A funeral service is scheduled for 1 p.m. May 15 at the Church of St. Bride, 1516 Clarkson Road North, Mississauga, Ontario. Visitation will be held one hour before the service begins, and a reception will follow the funeral.last_img read more

EMC is a Laggard Playing by the Old Rules of Marketing

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to Email AppEmail AppShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to MessengerMessengerShare to SlackSlack I was talking to a friend who does marketing at EMC, a gigantic and successful technology company (over 30,000 employees).  I asked him what he thought some of the most important marketing activities were that they did at EMC.  He gave me the normal “old school” marketing answer about paying analysts a bunch of money to write reports, developing customer case studies, presenting at conferences, etc.I asked him to tell me how to describe EMC in two words, and I suggested the phrase “data storage”.  He said that they would prefer “information infrastructure”.  I said, let’s do an experiment with both terms.  I did a simple Google search for each phrase, you can see the results below by clicking on the links.  I was shocked to see that EMC is not on the first page for either search phrase.Google search for “data storage”Google search for “information infrastructure”How could a company as large as EMC not be listed in search engines for a basic search term that describes their company?  This is like opening the Yellow Pages in 1990 and looking under “car rental” and not seeing an ad for Hertz!It is no longer 1990, and the rules of marketing have changed.  Do you want to understand the New Rules of Marketing?  Download this free eBook on the New Rules of PR by David Meerman Scott, author of the book The New Rules of Marketing and PR.What is your company doing to take advantage of the New Rules of Marketing?  Leave a comment below so we can discuss.
