JSE honours its ‘stalwart’ companies

first_img23 April 2008The JSE has honoured 19 South African companies that have been listed on the exchange for 40 years and more, stating that those companies have helped position the JSE as a world-class stock exchange.“The exchange has operated for 121 years and throughout this time has formed solid relationships with several prestigious organisations,” said JSE chief executive Russell Loubser at a luncheon in Sandton, Johannesburg, last Friday.The JSE, which ranks among the top 20 stock exchanges worldwide in terms of market capitalisation, was originally established as the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in November 1887 to raise capital for mining operations following the discovery of gold in the Witwatersrand a year earlier.Companies that have been listed for 40 years and longer include DRDGOLD, African and Overseas Enterprises, Caxton and CTP Publishers and Printers, Crookes Brothers, Dorbyl Metair Investments, Murray & Roberts, Reunert, Assore, ELB Group, Harmony Gold Mining, Masonite (Africa), Mr Price Group, Hwange Colliery, Trencor, Tongaat Hulett, Avusa, Liberty Group, Palabora Mining, African Oxygen, Santam and AECI.“We are very proud to have played a role in the success of these companies, many of whom are giants in their sectors, and wish them great prosperity in for the future,” he said.Business Day reported last week that the 19 companies had a combined market capitalisation of R161-billion, or an average of R8.5-billion, with three companies worth more than R20-billion each. They are Harmony Gold (R37.9-billion), Liberty Group (23.1-billion) and Assore (R21.8-billion).“The presence of these reputable companies helped position the JSE as a world-class stock exchange associated with high market integrity, efficiency and sound practices,” said Loubser. “We look forward to many more fruitful years working together.”In addition to its stock exchange, the JSE has created over markets over the past decade to meet the specific needs of investors, including Africa’s most active agricultural derivatives market, and an interest rate exchange, Yield-X, which was the first of its kind in the world for trading both the cash spot bond as well as interest rate derivative products on one trading platform.The JSE also launched a currency futures market last year, allowing individuals to trade in the currency futures market through a regulated exchange for the first time in South Africa.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Facebook Takes Away An Easy Exit

first_imgGuide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… dave copeland Related Posts Last night Andy Mitchell, Facebook’s manager of media partnerships, told a panel of developers that Facebook is moving away from apps that automatically share what people read. The apps, which have been developed by the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, SocialCam and other media outlets, give publishers a big boost in page views.Publishers won’t be happy about losing a tool that brings people from Facebook to their sites.Mitchell said member feedback prompted the change. There may be something more at play here than placating the Facebook base, though. Trending Articles seems like an effort to keep people in Facebook’s walled garden. It inserts like and share buttons under article links.It’s conventional wisdom that many people seeing an intriguing headline share the link with friends before or even instead of actually reading the attached article. While we wait for more details from Facebook, I bet the new feature is designed to take advantage of that behavior.One of the first things that struck me about the new feature is that an article that was read by as few as 1,400 members out of a billion-member social network made it to the trending list.Looking at the number of likes I’m seeing when I click through to a trending article, it seems a lot of people are viewing the article link in their newsfeed, clicking like or share and moving on.That would make Facebook happy because more people remain on the site, potentially clicking on ads.Of course, if some of my friends do read an article, it gives the content more social heft, increasing the likelihood I’ll like, share or maybe read it. A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#Facebook#web Less than 12 hours after Facebook’s manager of media partnerships told developers that the company is moving away from passive sharing apps, a clue about the the move showed up in newsfeeds.Facebook members may have noticed something different when they logged in Friday morning.

The Evolution of Hollywood Dinosaurs

first_img1970: When Dinosaurs Ruled the EarthProduced by Hammer Films, When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth is notable for a couple of things… First, all of the film’s dialogue is spoken in a caveman language created specifically for the film. Secondly, the film was nominated for a visual effects Oscar. 1969: The Valley of GwangiAnother Ray Harryhausen creation, The Valley of Gwangi follows a group of cowboys into the remote Forbidden Valley, where they battle dinosaurs. Their biggest foe is the vicious Allosaurus named Gwangi. While this flick wan’t as big as some of Harryhausen’s other movies, it still made an impact on generations of future filmmakers, as you’ll see in the following short documentary.And, because it’s awesome, here’s a fight between some cowboys, Gwangi, and a Styracosaurus. The big screen dinosaur rampage that started in the 1900s continues this summer with Jurassic World. Let’s take a look at the evolution of Hollywood dinosaurs.Who doesn’t like dinosaurs? Their massive scale and ability to stir the imagination have kept audiences glued to the big screen since the early 1900s and that’s not likely to change anytime soon, thanks to the release of Jurassic World. The new Chris Pratt vehicle has stirred debate in some circles because of its complete dependence on CGI, versus Jurassic Park’s skillful blend of computer and practical effects. Let’s take a look at the Jurassic World trailer and then explore the evolution of Hollywood dinosaurs.1912: Gertie the DinosaurWinsor McCay’s groundbreaking Gertie the Dinosaur wasn’t simply a cartoon… it was a live spectacle. McCay would appear on stage and seemingly direct Gertie through a routine, interacting with the animated beast in ways that had never been seen. Obviously it was a simpler time. 1953: The Beast From 20,000 Fathomsinspired by Willis O’Brien’s work on King Kong, the great Ray Harryhausen started climbing his way up the Hollywood ladder. The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms was the first film with Harryhausen in charge of technical effects, and his stop-motion work on this seminal “dinosaur rampage” movie changed the course of SFX history. Here’s Harryhausen himself discussing the film. 1966: One Million Years BCOne Million Years BC might be rest remembered for Raquel Welch’s fur bikini, but this campy masterpiece features some of Ray Harryhausen’s finest creature animation. Here’s a few more big-budget filmmaking articles from the PremiumBeat archive. Enjoy!Avengers Assembled: Editing a BlockbusterHollywood Attacks! The Best Scenes From Disaster Movies10 Examples of Horrible Hollywood Special EffectsAre there any big screen blockbuster dinosaur moments that we missed? Let us know in the comments below! 1933: King KongThe iconic Ape on T-Rex action of the original King Kong earned the film a place in the National Film Registry. With stop-motion work created by the legendary Willis O’Brien, the film was remade in the 70s by John Guillermin and in 2005 by Peter Jackson. Below, you’ll find the dinosaur fight scenes from the 1933 original and the Jackson version. 1993: Jurassic ParkAfter a couple of decades where the most notable movie dinosaurs were the animated cast members of The Land Before Time, filmmaking was turned on its head by Jurassic Park. Easily the greatest dinosaur film ever created, Jurassic Park was an unparalleled achievement, combining computer and practical effects, memorable characters (We’re looking at you, Goldblum), and good old fashioned popcorn thrills.  1925: The Lost WorldThe stop-motion behemoths created by Willis O’Brien for The Lost World, an adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel of the same name, shocked and stunned the mainstream in 1925. According to Neil Pettigrew in his book, The Stop-Motion Filmography:The astounded audience watched footage of a Triceratops family, an attack by an Allosaurus, and some Stegosaurus footage. On the next day, the New York Times ran a front page article about it, saying “(Conan Doyle’s) monsters of the ancient world, or of the new world which he has discovered in the ether, were extraordinarily lifelike. If fakes, they were masterpieces”last_img read more

Murshidabad triple murder case solved, say police

first_imgPolice have claimed to have “solved” the triple murder case in Murshidabad district with the arrest of a mason named Utpal Behra.Bandhu Prakash Pal, a 35-year-old schoolteacher, his wife and their child were found dead in their home about a week ago.Superintendent of Police Mukesh Kumar said Behra had deposited money in a savings scheme run by Pal. The latter had refused to give Behra a receipt for a part of the payment he had made. This led to a confrontation for a period of time and finally resulted in the murders, Mr. Kumar said.Political overtonesThe incident had acquired political overtones with the BJP and West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar hitting out at the Mamata Banerjee government and the RSS claiming that the teacher was its supporter. The victims’ family, however, insisted that Pal had no political affiliations.Pal collected money from small investors in and around Jiaganj town in Murshidabad. Behra, a man without a steady income, had invested in two schemes. He told interrogators that Pal gave him a receipt for the first scheme but refused to give him one for the other.Weapon recovered“For the last few weeks, Pal and Behra used to quarrel over this. Pal even insulted him, after which Behra decided to kill him,” Mr. Kumar told journalists. The weapon used in the crime has been recovered.last_img read more

Lions Cut Aaron Berry After 2nd Arrest In A

Tired of his off-the-field troubles, the Detroit Lions unceremoniously cut projected starting cornerback Aaron Berry on Monday morning after he was arrested this weekend for the second time in a month, a league source told ESPN.This time, Berry was apprehended, according to Cpl. Kyle Gautsch of the Harrisburg Police Department, on three charges of simple assault. And, to make matters worse, police said there ”was a weapon allegedly brandished during the incident.”That was enough for the Loins, apparently.Less than a month ago Berry was arrested in that area June 23 on suspicion of DUI, failure to stop and render aid from an accident and other counts. He was set to enter a diversionary program in that case.His second arrest was the latest bit of bad publicity during a troubled off-season for the Lions, who are quickly moving toward challenging the Cincinnati Bengals for players that get into off-the-field-trouble with the law.To illustrate: Lions’ running back Mikel Leshoure will miss the first two games this season without pay and will have to give up two more game checks for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. Not good. Then there is defensive tackle NIck Fairley, who was arrested twice in two months. Really not good.Berry is entering his third NFL season. He started three games last season for the Lions and one the previous season.”I would just hope that everybody just holds their judgment on this matter,” said Corky Goldstein, Berry’s lawyer. ”There’s a lot more to this situation.  I know Aaron is very upset over this whole situation. Let’s give the opportunity for all the facts to come out.”The Lions released a statement Sunday that hardly was a symbol of support.”We are extremely disappointed by the reports involving Aaron Berry,” the team said. ”We are currently gathering more information and will have further comment when appropriate.” read more
