(Image: Bush Babies Environmental Education, Facebook)Compiled by Priya PitamberA young South African scientist is in the US participating in the Broadcom Masters (Math, Applied Science, Technology and Engineering for Rising Stars) International programme.Thirteen-year-old Lehlogonolo “Nolo” Msuma’s inquiring mind led her to question why there were only old marula trees in her community, in Phalaborwa in Limpopo.“We only know that big trees are being eaten by elephants, goats, cows and wanted to know [what] the small seedlings of marula were being eaten by; I found out that they were being eaten by rodents,” she told the national broadcaster, the SABC.“Marula trees, which are seeing a decline worldwide, are important for Nolo’s community because they provide fruit and are home to many birds as well as larger animals,” reads the Broadcom Masters Facebook page.Nolo is in Los Angeles from 14 to 19 May “for a week of fun and engaging hands-on science and engineering activities”.Research and findingsNolo said she found that the Bushbuck gabble and the Namaqua rock rat were eating the marula seedlings daily.In her project, she outlines various ways in which this can be curbed to allow the trees to grow.The fruit from the tree is used in many ways in her community: to ferment alcohol, and to make soap and jam.Nolo would like to become an environmental scientist because she believes South Africa can make positive contributions to global research.The programmeAccording to the Broadcom Masters International website, each delegate is chosen for “their excellence in science, engineering and leadership”.“They are rising stars who come together to represent their nations for this international exchange.”Participants come from Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Puerto Rico and many more countries.“There is a sense of urgency to inspire more young people to become the scientists and engineers of the future,” said Paula Golden, president of the Broadcom Foundation, speaking about the national leg of the programme in the US.“Our quality of life depends upon solving the grand challenges in health care, transportation, communication, environmental protection and sustainability.”About NoloNolo is a Grade 8 pupil at Gerson Ntjie High School and an ambassador for the Bush Babies Environmental Programme.School principal Vivian Kganyago said she hoped other students would follow in Nolo’s footsteps, despite the school not having a lab in which to work. “I hope Gerson will be known not only provincially, nationally but internationally,” she said.See Nolo speak ahead of her departure to the US:Other than an interest in environmental science, she “enjoys reading, writing poetry, singing, and researching the latest fashion trends”, reads the Broadcom Masters Facebook page.Sources: Broadcom Masters, SABCWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Seedcamp: Web-Era Support for Startups

first_imgTags:#start#startups 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market As we reported earlier, 22 teams of European entrepreneurs gathered at Seedcamp in London last week to compete for a chance to win serious investment in their startups. ReadWriteWeb has been following these and other entrepreneurs on our ReadWriteStart channel, so you can get good background there on some of the teams selected to compete.Seedcamp, however, is far from a simple dragon’s den-style pitch and panel investment company. The week-long camp included many hours of training sessions and mentoring from some impressive industry names: Google, Twitter, Microsoft, and a slew of other big-time companies and individuals. Alongside training and pitching, the teams also scheduled opportunities to mingle with venture capitalists and potential industry complementors. In the end, five of the teams received €50,000 each and will remain in London for three months for more training. But this single week is the tip of a Seedcamp networking iceberg.Similar to Y Combinator, Seedcamp focuses on the beginning phase of a company’s growth, and it feels more like a “foster” organization than a traditional investment group. After speaking with CEO Reshma Sohoni (previously of 3i), we learned a bit more about the vision and context in which they work.Sohoni explained that Seedcamp has two parts: a seed fund and a platform of support, which work together to get the most interesting companies past the initial hurdles. Seedcamp focuses on opening doors and translating a startup’s ideas into a marketable product. Its platform model leads on from a very Web-savvy approach to business.“We’ve taken the best of what’s happened in the past 10 to 15 years in terms of the Web for finding great new investment opportunities and supporting them through a much more federated (not so much top-down) structure of working,” says Sohoni.Seedcamp aims to put people in contact with a strong support network, so that after the €50,000 is spent and their three months of additional support have expired, the startups should be in very capable—and well-matched—hands.An example of this “platform” mentality could be seen in the series of panels throughout the main event. The panel discussions provide a venue for attendees to question people who have “made it.” It seemed like a good opportunity to learn from the mistakes and successes of startups that are no longer new.At the technical panel, for example, the audience posed questions about scaling applications and servers to some of the biggest names in scaling history: Blaine Cook (who built Twitter), Vijay Pandu (who worked at Google), and Matt Biddulph, CTO of Dopplr. This is a seriously cool idea, because it gives everyone a chance to ask about specifics: “What servers do you use?” “How can I stop X from happening?” Questions, in other words, that might take a long time to find answers to otherwise. The panel also presented little gems of advice, such as, “Don’t test too closely, sometimes. You’ll just get stuck in making red flags green and miss the bigger problems.”Seedcamp sees itself as a startup, too, with a very active approach to business, and it has seen some significant changes to participating teams this year. For one thing, more teams are coming from further away, and one of the winning five (Talasim) came all the way from Jordan! This is an impressive step for an initiative that has always seen itself as pan-European. “In previous years, most of the applicants were coming from the UK, and most then only from London,” said one observer. “That’s changing.”The quality of applications is also improving year after year, no doubt because of how startups are moving from conception to competitor so quickly. Many of Seedcamp’s impressive advisery groups (which mentor the next generations of ‘Campers) were themselves successful applicants.The proof of any initiative is its success, and the success of Seedcamp will be found in the number and quality of startups it helps over the next few years. Tracking the next bunch of industry disruptors, and seeing which ones have come through the program, will be interesting. If the past few years are any indication, we should see quite a few!This bit of advice from Blaine Cook on the technical panel seems an appropriate note to end on:“If you’re not obsessed with your own product, you need to change what you’re doing. Keep changing it until you care about it. Then work on scaling.” Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img zach beauvais 1 Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

a month ago​Cleverley delighted with straightforward Watford boss Sanchez Flores

first_img​Cleverley delighted with straightforward Watford boss Sanchez Floresby Ansser Sadiqa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveTom Cleverley only has positive words for his new manager Quique Sanchez Flores.The Spaniard took over from Javi Gracia, who was sacked after a miserable start to the season.Flores has managed at the club before, and got off to a decent start with a 2-2 draw against Arsenal.”He’s not bombarded us with information,” said Cleverley to reporters. “He’s just got his ideas across, very black and white about the basics of how he wants to set up and play. It has been a good, positive week.”The most pleasing thing was how solid we were defensively in the second half.”It has been a problem of ours this season and we were really solid at the back in the second half, from a good shape and that helps us get numbers forward.”We need to be consistent with performances like that now and if we do that we won’t be long where we are now [in the table].

Europa League semifinals draw reaction

first_imgThe dream final won’t come true. Arsenal will face Atletico Madrid, while Marseille will play Salzburg in the Europa League semi-finals.After a furious Thursday in which all of the first leg leaders were threatened at a certain point and two of them failed to protect their leads, we had the UEFA Europa League semi-finals draw on Friday.Olympique Marseille – Salzburg The draw pitted those two teams that overcame their first leg deficits against each other. Salzburg showed once again that is a force to be reckoned with by scoring three goals in five minutes to flip the script on Lazio and eliminate the Italian hopefuls. Marseille had the luxury of playing its quarter-final second leg at home, but that won’t be the case now. You can read about what happened in Marseille last night in my review here.Marseille and Salzburg played in the same Group I in the previous stage of the competition. The Austrians topped the group. You would think that the matches between them were high scoring, but there was actually only one goal scored in 180 minutes. Salzburg won at home, while the match at Stade Velodrome was goalless. The Frenchmen’s pedigree makes them automatic favorites, but the reality is a bit different. Salzburg is phenomenal at home and that’s where the second leg will be played. Also, their high press could create problems for Rudi Garcia and his crew. RB Leipzig’s inexperience and individual talent helped Marseille prevail yesterday. However, Salzburg is a different beast that can be difficult to counter. I give the advantage to the Austrian team to advance. Regardless of how it turns out at the end, I expect two exciting, unpredictable fixtures.Arsenal – Atletico Madrid The wishes of many didn’t come true. We’re not going to see the “giants” in the final. Arsenal and Atletico Madrid is the second Europa League semi-final. Both teams were in danger of getting caught by their opponents yesterday. CSKA Moscow scored two out of the three goals it needed to potentially eliminate Arsenal, but The Gunners scored two late goals of their own to advance. Atletico lost in Lisbon and was holding on to dear life at the end. Simeone’s men managed to defend their 2-0 lead from the first leg and advanced as well.Now, they face each other in what will be one of the most anticipated matchups in Europa League history. Believe it or not, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid have never met in a European competition before, which makes this an even more intriguing battle. In addition to the second leg being played in Madrid, Atletico’s consistency and Arsenal’s inconsistency makes the Spanish team a definite favorite. It’s the only team left that has won the competition before and chances are it’ll be in the final in Lyon. However, Arsenal will not go out without a fight. It’s attacking might could cause problems for Simeone’s defensive unit. I honestly can’t wait for this matchup of opposites, as these types of clashes are usually really fun to watch.The first legs are due to be played on April 26, while the second legs are scheduled for May 3.last_img read more

Bellerin reveals why he left Barcelona for Arsenal

first_imgHector Bellerin left Barcelona’s famous La Masia academy at the tender age of 16 in pursuit of first team football at Arsenal and has since become regarded as one the very best full-backs in the Premier LeagueThe 23-year-old was omitted from Spain’s World Cup squad this summer, but he has since been labelled as one of new boss Unai Emery’s “untouchables” at Arsenal along with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Alexandre Lacazette and Granit Xhaka.While the prospect of leaving such a big club like Barcelona may be seen as a risk, Bellerin revealed that he was motivated by the idea of a new challenge at London.In an interview with Wealthsimple’s Money Diaries, he said: “When footballers in Europe turn 16, they can sign working contracts, which means they can go abroad. I was playing with FC Barcelona’s youth academy, La Masia, and when I turned 16, I thought I would stay with Barca.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“But I wasn’t feeling like they were showing me on paper what they were saying — let’s put it that way. I’m not talking just financially, but also in terms of my path into the first team.“Halfway through that year, I got the call that Arsenal were interested in me. So, I went to London, saw the facilities, met with the boss, and they made me an offer.“Everything looked so great, and my path into the first team was clear — obviously as long as I worked hard and I was reaching my targets. I like challenges and adventures.“Even though people might have thought I was putting myself in a tough position by leaving my country and my family, it was actually quite easy, and exciting.”last_img read more
