22 November 2011The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform is to conduct a pilot project that could see rural communities along the eastern escarpment of Mpumalanga province harvesting fog as a vital water source.“If the pilot project yields positive results, we will consider a large scale roll-out to feed into local water distribution networks,” department spokesman Eddie Mohoebi said on Monday.It is hoped the project will alleviate water shortages in South Africa, one of 30 countries with the worst water scarcity in the world. The country’s average annual rainfall of 450mm is nearly half the global average of 860mm per year.Communities in Cabazane village near Mount Ayliff in the Eastern Cape and Thohoyandou in Limpopo are already harvesting fog and providing clean water for their basic needs.Simple, electricity-free technologyFog is caught using a 40 square metre net made of stainless mesh co-knitted with a poly material attached to six-metre-high wooden poles. Gutters, attached to the bottom of the net, catch the water droplets and lead it down into reservoirs. No electricity is needed to operate the plant.The pilot project in Mpumalanga aims to produce 5 000 to 15 000 litres of water per day through fog harvesting.According to statistics from the South African Weather Service, Mpumalanga’s weather stations recorded 225 days of fog in 2010. It is the highest number of fog days for all provinces in South Africa.SA Weather Service senior scientist Dawn Mahlobo said fog was recorded on 82 days at the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport and 85 days in Ermelo.Job creationThe department wants the first fog harvesting plant to be erected either at Piet Retief, Donkerhoek, Madadeni, Shibange or Ntunda.“At this point in time, it is difficult to determine where exactly the fog will be harvested. The outcome of the feasibility study will determine the areas suitable for fog harvesting technology,” said Mohoebi.“Other communities along the escarpment will be considered if thick fog appears for 90 days or more for a few hours at a time and is accompanied by strong wind. The sites should also be at least 1km above sea level,” Mohoebi added.The bids for Mpumalanga’s pilot project closed last week. The pilot project will commence a month after a service provider is appointed, with the contractor training community members to operate and maintain the system.The department hopes the project will provide access to clean water and enhance local economic development with job creation in installing and maintaining fog water harvesting technology, and establishing small gardens for community.Source: BuaNews

Taimoor Khan – September 8, 2019 Arsenal are set to take on Watford this weekend and the game is definitely going to be quite a peculiar contest between two sides…“We had to defend better. I knew we needed to defend well because I was sure Bournemouth would create chances because they always do it.”“We conceded two goals from two free-kicks and it was difficult to accept,” he added.“After that, we competed well and we were looking for victory until the end.”“Maybe if it could have worked differently but we kept working. It was different moments in the game,” he added.“We started well and after they scored two goals as well it was a moment without control but we controlled it better in the second half and were more organized to contain them.”

Screenshot by CNET via Amazon Restaurants Amazon’s food delivery service is up for the chopping block.Following its shuttering in London, Amazon Restaurants is also slated to close up shop in the US later this month, according to GeekWire.The service is four years into its run, after beginning life in Seattle in 2015 and then branching out to 20 more cities in the US as well as London. For Amazon Prime members, it provides the same services as other food-delivery apps like Uber Eats and Deliveroo, seeing meals delivered to their houses through Prime Now or the Amazon Restaurants website.The service packed up its bags in London in November, and Amazon confirmed to GeekWire it would end on June 24 in the US.”As of June 24th, we will discontinue the Amazon Restaurants business in the US,” an Amazon spokesperson said in a statement shared with GeekWire.”Many of the small number of employees affected by this decision have already found new roles at Amazon, and others will be provided personalized support to find a new role within, or outside of, the company.”Heard of Daily Dish? The Amazon-owned food delivery service focused on bringing lunch to the workplace will also close up shop on June 14.Despite these shutterings, Amazon hasn’t entirely left the food-delivery game. Not only will its groceries delivery service continue from Whole Foods via Prime Now, it’s poured funding into UK-based food delivery company Deliveroo, keeping its competition with Uber Eats and Grubhub on the heat.
