Mr Human to become ‘Google Certified’ Laurelle Williams
“ It is not only me; it is the parents, students and teachers as well. This is a ‘we’ celebration ” Google tm has selected Percy Human, vice principal of Glenanda Primary School, as an attendee at the next Google Teacher Academy (GTA), to be held in Stockholm, Sweden on 10 December. The Google Teacher Academy is a two-day intensive program that recognises educators who are doing innovative and exciting things in their schools and classrooms with technology. Mr Human was selected to represent Glenanda Primary School. The dedicated educator applied this year to GTA after hearing that they wanted South Africans to apply. Mr Human submitted his one minute video and received 650 hits within the first week of it being on YouTube. Thereafter he had to submit a research document presenting his district and how Glenanda Primary was using Google. “I feel very special. I am proud to be working at Glenanda Primary School as it has presented all these opportunities for me. It is not only me; it is the parents, students and teachers as well. This is a ‘we’ celebration,” Mr Human told tame TIMES. Fifty participants from different countries across the globe will get hands-on experience with Google’s products and technologies, learn about innovative instructional strategies, and receive resources to share with colleagues. Upon completion, Academy participants become Google Certified Teachers who share what they learn with other educators in their local regions and beyond. “As a long time user of Google products, I’ve seen the power it brings to the Glenanda

Primary School by providing teachers and learners opportunities to collaborate in real time,” Mr Human added. Google Certified Teachers are exceptional educators with a passion for using innovative tools to improve teaching and learning, as well as creative leaders and ambassadors for change. They are recognised experts and widely admired for their commitment to high expectations for students, lifelong learning and collaboration. Mr Human’s dedication to his school is proved by his choice of attending the GTA in Sweden rather than in London, as the London GTA course is held while school is ongoing whereas the Sweden event occurs during school holidays. He doesn’t want to miss out on teaching time with his students. The Google Certified Teacher programme was launched in 2006 with the first Academy held at Google headquarters in Mountain View. The program has since held several academies across the US, Australia, and UK, expanding the ranks of Google Certified Teachers to over 800 educators worldwide. The Google Teacher Academy is produced by Google, in collaboration with Computer-Using Educators (CUE, Inc), a non-profit educational organisation. tame TIMES looks forward to hearing and reporting on Mr Human’s Google experience.

Sponsor a kennel –
it’s a real Christmas present What is Christmas present clutter? It is something that most of us are guilty of. It refers to spending money on arbitrary gifts for the sake of giving a loved one a Christmas present. You know that look on your husband or father’s face when he unwraps yet another pair of socks, or another tool set? And while it’s the thought that counts and the gesture is appreciated, at that moment both of you know that he didn’t really need another screwdriver. Christmas is a season for charity and the JSPCA is looking for kennel sponsors. If you sponsor a kennel on behalf of your gift recipient, their name will be featured on the kennel. Your kennel sponsorship will continue to help animals find their happily ever afters. Contact pr@ jhbspca.co.za to sponsor a kennel.

It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving– Mother Teresa. It’s the silly season people. If you have not realised that, carefully lift your hand above your head and feel for a solid mass because it’s very possible you may be living under a rock. The shop windows are dressed with all things snowy and glittery, fuel prices dropped, people are giving the final lap the last of the reserved energy and, if I’m not mistaken, this past week I received a courteous smile and wave in a situation which would have earned me the one finger salute in June. So evidently the spirit of Christmas, kwanza, the holiday season or whatever you call it, is upon us. Thinking about the December holiday season, from as far back as I like to remember, has always lead my thoughts towards the universal meaning of this time of year. Has too much emphasis been placed on the activity around this time of year? Does the aggressive push towards the advertising of everything condition the mind to forget reason? There are many other related questions, however that is not something I feel I should get into at the moment. Rather, doing something that will benefit someone who cannot do anything for you in return, someone who does not even expect to be shown favour and most importantly who will truly appreciate however little the gesture. I’m a supporter of organisations formed with the intention to serve the needy, however experiences I’ve had during serving on the Department of Community Safety’s Youth-desk, and brief excursions to neighbouring countries, I’ve learnt the value of physically touching a life. I’ve learnt to appreciate even the worst day and most importantly felt the warm sense of inner fulfilment that results from the appreciation the less fortunate in society give in return. This year the idea of convincing people to ‘buy one more’ during Christmas shopping and personally delivering whatever the bought item is to an orphan in a home, a street kid, a gogo who has several hungry mouths to feed, or whoever is at need, came to mind. As conclusion to this week’s short conversation, I question and challenge: Would it be possible for you to take some time off to buy one more and get your hands to touch a life? Share your experiences and photos with us at voice@tametimes. co.za, but most importantly share of yourself this season.
COMMENT OF THE WEEK Dear Nieto Hernandez Your article, Time to man-out, impressed me so much that I just have to respond. I am a mother of two middle-aged sons and married for fifty five years to a wonderful man, and so I consider myself well informed to the plight of men. On the subject of prostate and breast cancer, I would like to see a group of men meeting to just chill out and talk openly about this sort of thing. It’s a big worry that should not be suffered alone and maybe it’s easier to talk when there is an eager listener that can encourage support and understand their point of view. As a woman I would like to say men that can cry and men that face their demons openly are strong men, and I for one think women (wives, girlfriends, friends and family) can and should be supportive and compassionate on such matters. It always helps when there is someone you can confide in that will be sympathetic and not pushy. My recommendation is, start a man-out group, wear a blue ribbon to identify cancer for man-out, a tribe of strong men willing to face whatever, with wisdom and support from like-minded men. Just my point of view, I wish you much success in this endeavour. Kind Regards, Clara Freedman

Keep your eyes open Kick-starting smart
“Vula’mehlo – Keep Your Eyes Open”, the brain-child of the Molalatladi Safety Moves has partnered with Gauteng Province Community Safety to launch a one day Safety and Security Expo on 23 November at Klipriviersberg Recreation Centre, commencing at 09:00. The Gauteng MEC for Community Safety, Faith Mazibuko, and the Joburg Executive Mayor Parks Tau will lead an interactive workshop where community members will be able to engage with a panel of safety and security experts. Other stakeholders will include households, schools, places of worship, business, NGO’s, CPF’s, exhibitors and celebrities “We are launching this initiative in the south of Johannesburg as a pilot project,” said Enos Magwabeni, the co-founder of Molalatladi Safety Moves. “As soon as this gets traction, we will expand to the other parts of Johannesburg and eventually cover the whole Gauteng region with the aim of going national,” he said. This first expo targets the communities of Mulbarton, Aspen Hills, Gleneagles, Liefde & Vrede, Bassonia, Glenvista, Glenanda,

Suideroord, Alan Manor, Meredale, Winchester Hills, Mondeor, Ridgeway, Naturena, Ormonde View, Kibler Park, Eikenhof, Rispark, Patlyn, Mayfield Park, Alveda Park, Jacksons and Diepkloof Extension. There is no cost. Molalatladi Safety Moves seeks to co-ordinate all community members and entities, so they’ll work in cooperation with one another to enhance the safety and security of all. Magwabeni said the mindset that only one’s own space is considered as a security focus has to change if we are to improve safety and security significantly in our communities.
This mindset shift will include factors such as: - Knowing the people in your neighbourhood, especially your immediate neighbours. - Educating yourself on safety structures and measures in your community, i.e. Community Policing Forum, Street Committees, SAPS patrollers’ cell numbers - Getting involved with your community safety structures - Watching out for developments in your community that may be, or lead to being a threat to your, or someone’s, life and/or possessions; and proactively reporting such potential threats. - Arming yourself with information on people and structures to call in emergencies. The expo is structured to have three main aspects: a) Workshops b) Exhibitions c) Demonstrations. For more information or to get involved please contact Enos Magwabeni on 072 304 2422.
meters roll-out Following clearance by an independent investigation of all allegations of corruption and fraud in the awarding of its smart meters tender, City Power is ready to continue with the roll-out of smart meters across the City of Johannesburg. Over the past eight months, City Power has installed 153 smart meters in Ferndale and 2500 with large power users in Johannesburg as part of a project business trial. The business trial comes to an end on 15 November and will be followed by the full deployment of the smart meters, starting with a 50 000 smart meter roll-out this financial year as part of phase 1 of deployment. Already, City Power has started with a preinstallation audit. Fifty suburbs have been audited already, and community engagement and communication will commence soon. The following suburbs will be the first to benefit from the phase 1 roll-out of 50 000 smart meters. These include: Glenvista, Crown Gardens, Suideroord, Rosettenville, Turf Club, Kenilworth, Turffontein, Haddon, South Hills, Gillview, Tulisa Park, The Hill, Ridgeway, Robertsham, Towerby, Rewlatch, Booysens and Ophirton. The smart meters roll-out commences this
financial year, and is scheduled to conclude in September/October 2015. “By deploying smart meters, the City of Johannesburg is able to receive accurate electricity usage information, accurate data with which to plan future infrastructure expansions, and in the long term, we will be able to build a smart city.” Customers benefit as the technology enables the city to relay critical information to their houses and access factual information regarding their billing. They will be able to perform independent monthly bill reconciliations and validations, to proactively manage spending on electricity throughout the month. The initial phase is focusing on Larger Power Users (LPU) located throughout the City of Johannesburg. Meter installation should take no longer than an hour and will be carried out in consultation with residents. By 2015, the project’s expected completion date, City Power consumers will be serviced by either conventional prepaid meters or by smart meters that can operate in a post or pre-paid mode.

These young citizens are part of the first generation to have been born outside the existence of Apartheid, giving them a unique voice and outlook on South Africa’s political landscape. According to Tejis Devchand (18), the prospect of voting in his first election is quite exciting. “We, as Born Frees, just want to be part of the decision,” he said, after completing his registration at Glenvista High’s School station. “We want change and it is definitely not happening at the moment, under the ANC. We want our vote to make a difference.” The importance of voter registration has not been solely experienced by the new generation of voters, though.

When I told him that I was going to a recording studio, he replied ‘that is the best news I have ever heard’,” Peters said. tame TIMES met up with the Marists Brother music teacher. One can see Peters was very fond of her father by the way she retells stories about him. “My dad loved music and was a great entertainer himself. He was a great influence in my career,” Peters recalled. She will forever hear the resounding phrase “You’ve got it kid!” Even though Germanus wasn’t alive to see the CD launch of his daughter, he is sure to be smiling down from heaven. Peters started playing piano at the age of 5 and had five teachers who were all sourced by her father. She played for dancing schools and entered many talent competitions. The cover of her album is a picture taken in 1963 at a talent competition at the Adelphie Bioscope in Rosettenville. When asked how she feels about the CD launch, Peters said she feels she has really achieved something great. She adds that she has had a good response and report from people who have bought the CD. “One of my friends said it is the most uplifting music ever.” tame TIMES has to agree, it is an astounding compilation. Granada and Five Finger Boogie are the two songs that Peters enjoys playing the most, as these were two of her father’s favourite songs.

City Parks response Let SA review the cost of to KNR petition running the government Jenny Moodley, City Parks spokesperson writes:
Om totsiens te sê is soos ‘n nat kombers om die skouers. So ‘n swaar gevoel van verlies. So moes ons die jaar ‘n paar vriende van ons ouderdom groet. Soos Gysie sê, “Hulle kap nou in ons bos.” Die wete dat al jou herinneringe gedeel met ou vriende vervaag tot groot verlange op sekere tye, soos verjaarsdae of familiefeeste, is baie sleg. Maar dood is nie die enigste totsiens sê nie. Jou bure wat 30 jaar langs jou gebly het verruil nou hulle stadshuis vir hulle seehuis. Wat is die kans dat jy hulle gou weer sal sien? My jongste suster het na baie dink en bid besluit om by haar kinders in Kanada te gaan bly. Ons begroting sal nie sommer vliegkaartjies daarheen kan bekostig nie. Vir my ou Gysie was die bedanking by sy werk byna soos dood in die familie. Kollegas het soos broers geword en saam het hulle ‘n band gevorm so sterk ek dink hulle sou ‘n sikloon kon trotseer. Wanneer ‘n mens 20 jaar by ‘n maatskappy werk sien ‘n mens kollegas se babas groei tot universiteit student, en jou eie het al die nes verlaat. Vir Gysie het dit tog later beter geraak. Dis nou so rustig om hom sonder fronse of Gaviscon te sien rondloop. Sy vriende het hom regop gehou deur maagsere en spanning, wat nou iets is van die verlede is - en al die werkies by die huis is gedoen! TIP: Soms is groet nie net sleg nie - sprei jou vlerke en vlieg hoog!
We acknowledge the concerns of residents surrounding the Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve (KNR) and wish to respond to some of the issues raised. Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo (JCPZ) conducted a seasonal burn to ensure firebreaks are in place over the dry winter. This will be complemented with a second series of firebreaks as part of the summer safety campaign in reserves. As JCPZ we ensure the firebreaks are maintained, especially during the dry season. In terms of the fencing concerns, a contractor has been appointed to repair breeches in the fencing. This is ongoing and is undertaken as and when required. Residents are invited to please register their complaints with City Parks on 011 712 6600.
Fed up with fireworks Fed up Mondeor resident writes: Dewali or not, I am fed up with fireworks. Why not go and shoot your fireworks at FNB Stadium and not in our suburbs. There are more disadvantages than advantages with letting off fireworks: • Cruel to domestic animals • Cruel to our animals in the nature reserve • Exam time for all the children • Grade 12s are writing final exams • It is bed time for children going to school • As well as for all of us that work • It is traumatising our animals, and how do we comfort them? • Who is paying the vet bill? • The SPCA is inundated with dogs that broke out of their owners’ property Stop the fireworks! Ban the darn things.
Alberton resident Shaun Naidoo took part in the DAREdevil run at St Stithian’s on 8 November. The DAREdevil run, “Running for Our Balls”, is held annually to bring awareness around men’s health issues. “It was a spectacular experience. I ran with great friends. We covered 5.7km’s from start to finish,” The Nedbank road and trail runner said. Shaun Naidoo and Bruce Fordyce.
Louis Mofokeng writes: The smart card fee is anti-poor. This is according to Mr Manny de Freitas. I find it strange that a man whose salary comes from the exploitation of the poor worker at Marikana mine is suddenly the champion of the poor. Mr de Freitas has never fought for the better wages and living conditions of the poor workers in the mines, factories, farms and domestic workers, and yet his fat salary and the salaries of all members of parliament are paid out of the taxes of the exploited masses of the working class who in return receive poor service delivery. He claims that the Midvaal demarcation is about ANC dominance. For me it is about cutting the cost of running so many municipalities with state budgets and administrations that have no effect on the improvement of the lives of our people. On their Blue project to win Gauteng, De Freitas thinks that they should avoid the inclusion of Emfuleni Metro, but then how do you win Gauteng without Emfuleni? My own view is that at the centre of our political debates we should start talking seriously about the cost of running
nine provinces, which according to me equate nine governments within one state. Let us consider the costs against the achievements made in the past 20 years and measure the benefits if we had fewer provinces without premiers who were run by administrators without fat salaries, corruption and misdirected service delivery. Let us also look at the opposition parties, do they add value to our democracy or is it the waste of taxpayer money? When Mr de Freitas was told that 16million South Africans, including the 16-year-olds who will be applying for the first time to obtain ID’s, will not pay R140, he said that they will continue to fight for the poor to be exempted from paying a fee for an ID. It is confusing to notice that we have a member of parliament who is not aware that all persons on the SASSA database are people who earn grants of all sorts, ranging from the government pension fund, child grant, foster care, early pension, disability grant etc, and according to the last figures, there are 16million South Africans living on grants. God bless South Africa.

Personality Assessments (2) In a team-based context it is always valuable to know the personality traits of all the members of the team, as this highlights the strentghts of each individual, building a stronger and more effective team. It also helps explain differences within the team and promote better communication between the members of the team. Knowing your personality traits is a good guide in choosing a career in which you will feel fulfilled. Many people are unhappy in their careers because it does not suit their personality. At home in your personal relationships, knowing the different personality traits of the other person/children, creates an understanding of our differences and thus helps resolve unnecessary conflict. It is also a valuable tool in the raising of children as children with different personality traits react differently to the same parenting style.

Big words in the Bible
By Ryan Peter
The word “sanctification” is one of those ancient Greek words that modern English Bibles still use because it’s packed with meaning. In short, it means “set apart for a purpose”, “holiness”, or “cleansed”. But modern English translations still use “sanctification” because it means even more than all that. 1 Corinthians 1:30 And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption... When you put your faith in Christ you are justified, which means that God now declares you righteous and not guilty and you are no longer in sin. God then “sets you apart” for his purposes, “sanctifying” you. But your experience of this reality increases and you still need to grow into becoming more like Jesus. This growing process is your “sanctification”. You are set apart and becoming more set apart as you grow. And as you grow, your joy in God also grows. God promises that you will reach maturity in Him and perfect in every good work by continuing in faith (Hebrews 13:21). In Jesus, no sin can ever stop God’s love for you. And even more, the Christian life is one of increasing joy, holiness, love and good works! It only ever gets better!

Designing dream houses Star swimmers
Bellavista Computer Club awarded 12 Doug Whitehead Special School learners with a Google Sketch-up achievement certificate last Thursday. The Kensington-based school started attending the computer club in the beginning of the year and learned to use the Google Sketch-up programme, which is used in composing architecture drawings on a computer. They attended every Thursday from 9 to 12, during school terms. Last Thursday they celebrated the end of the
course and each received an achievement certificate as well as a party pack filled with delicious goodies. Salome Kanyane, the Bellavista Club House co-ordinator said, “The houses they designed were beautiful. At the back of each certificate I printed their design so they could go home and show their parents as they should be proud.” “I would just like to thank Doug Whitehead Special School and the principal for allowing us the opportunity to expose their children to this type of technology,” Kanyane added.
FUTURE ARCHITECTS:The Doug Whitehead learners with their bus driver and teacher Ms Radimokekana, and Salome Kanyane and her assistant.

Sodastream: the gift that keeps on giving Sodastream’s latest Source Element machine ticks all the boxes with a very sexy, eco-friendly DIY soda maker
Just under 6,4m tonnes of household waste is generated in South Africa and disposed of in landfills annually. Households generate 42% of this waste: 21% packaging and paper; 5% food; 6% greens and 10% other. This waste generation increases over the summer holidays providing enough reason to consider gifts that give more as we prepare to celebrate, decorate, relax, give gifts and travel this coming holiday season. Sodastream’s latest Source Element machine ticks all the boxes with a very sexy, eco-friendly DIY soda maker that your family, friends and Mother Nature will love you for. Even though the Source Element, designed by
visionary Yves Behar, is probably the coolest must-have gadget for any modern designconscious kitchen, the real beauty of this product, and all other Sodastream machines, lies in the fact that they were designed with Mother Nature in mind. The machines are recyclable, the CO2 cylinder refillable and its reusable BPA-free bottle has a 3-year lifespan, keeping you actively green by reducing the amount of plastic bottles you need to purchase and/or dispose of. Plus, your Sodastream Source Element doesn’t need electricity or batteries to keep the fun going, and Mother Nature also receives a gift she can enjoy – a summer holiday with less waste. The Source Element makes the summer holiday picture-perfect, because nothing says recharge at leisure like sparkling cocktails and nothing cools the throat like a fizzy cola, especially when you can have it exactly when you want it, the way you like it – more bubbles, less bubbles, sweeter, less sweet. You need mixers? No problem. With more than 20 delicious Sodastream flavours on tap, it’s at your fingertips. All you need is ordinary tap water and your Sodastream to magically create sparkling or soda water at the press of a button. Sounds like heaven, is heaven. Make Sodastream’s Source Element your first choice of gift this holiday season – knowing that Mother Nature benefits too. Use it in your kitchen, at your home bar, next to the pool, or take it to a picnic or even on holiday. Its fizz is limitless, so are the planet’s thanks.

Honda has just blasted into the neighbourhood with a brand new and beautiful dealership near The Glen. The dealership was originally home to Peugeot and Citroën. However, CMH Group, who manage all three of these brands, felt that Honda would be much more at home in the South of Johannesburg. Jannie Nel, former Dealer Principal (DP), was tasked with the mission of rearranging

the automotive powerhouse and finally bring Honda to the people in the South. The reigns have since been passed on to new DP, Dylan Pepperell, who welcomed the VIP guests, including major players at CMH, at the launch cocktail party that was held on 8 November. The red carpet was literally rolled out to welcome staff and guests to the event, where snacks and drinks were enjoyed by all. Mr Pepperell welcomed everyone and thanked them for their involvement in bringing the dealership to fruition. Guests had the opportunity to tour the premises. According to Jannie Nel, Honda The Glen has the potential to become one of the top dealerships in the country. Saturday (9 November) saw the official launch of the dealership to the public. Visitors were treated to music, jumping castles, and an opportunity to win instant prizes via balloon-popping. “We’re all very excited for this new journey,” Dylan Pepperell said, “We’ve worked hard and will continue to do so.”

Smit victorious in 94.7 Bujela takes on SA Open again Cycle Challenge Ndu Ngwenya
Willie Smit and Herman Fouché from team Bonitas.
On the winning streak: Willie Smit.
Willie Smit has won the Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge with a time of two hours, eight minutes and 42 seconds on Sunday morning, followed by teammate Herman Fouché. Teams in the lead group were Bonitas, WCCA, Abantu, NuWater, Europcar, Westvaal, ASG, Mecer, Complete Cyclist, New Horizons, and Swift. Smit said his win comes from plain hard work and many hours of practice. “I’m so thrilled. I’m happy I could pull it off for my sponsor Team Bonitas. And also for Herman Fouche, who came in second. It was all our team effort. It shows hard work paid off.” The winner in the ladies category was Ashleigh Moolman. Her time has not yet been officially calculated by the time of going to print. The 17th edition of world’s largest road race saw more than 31 000 riders take to the streets of Johannesburg in various categories. Making the most of the early morning conditions, Smit powered through the 94.7 kilometre route ahead of the rest of the pack. While some riders had spent a total of six hours on the road, Smit and others in the elite category maintained a fast pace, making the race look easy. Many supporters gathered around hanging over the barriers, screaming and shouting for their team members and some just generally for everyone. Well done to every rider, whether small, big, able bodied, disabled, young or old. The vibe was great, attracting people from all walks of life to enjoy a cycle-filled day or to just a family day out.
When Johannesburg golfer Sipho Bujela made his debut in the South African Open Championship last year, he became the first black amateur exempted from qualifying for the country’s flagship event. In January, the rising star secured his pro card at the Vusi Ngubeni Qualifying School and 11 months later, the Sunshine Tour rookie is relishing his maiden pro debut in the 103rd edition of the second oldest national championships at the Glendower Golf Club from 21 to 24 November. “It is an exciting time for me because last year I was there as an amateur, but now I’ll be playing as a pro,” Bujela said. “The SA Open was a great experience last year and I know I’m in for another great experience this year. The SA Open is very special and it is the one tournament every South African wants to win at least once in their lifetime. I dream of winning our Open.” Having played a lot of amateur golf at the par-72 layout, the young gun is quite familiar with Glendower and the challenges of the classic course. “This course really tests your ability to stay focused. You need to know what has to be done, and you need to stick to your game plan; if you don’t, you will be punished. There’s not much room for error and you can’t afford two bad shots in a row if you want to stand any chance of returning a decent score,” Bujela added A few weeks ago, Bujela was forced to withdraw after the first round of the Vodacom Origins of Golf Final at St Francis Links due to a wrist injury, but the Soweto golfer says he is recovering well and is almost pain-free.

Grand Prix winner
Laurelle Williams email@example.com Mapaseka Makhanya has been around the athletics scene for some time, but 2013 has been a stellar year for her, culminating in her victory in the SPAR Grand Prix. She was nominated for SA Sports Star of the Year, the only female among males but lost out to Itumeleng Khune. However she won the Sportswoman of the Year ahead of Lee-Anne Pace and Mandisa Williams. Makhanya took up road running this year because she wanted to build up her stamina and get used to running longer distances.

South Africa’s forward dominance once again came to the fore as they hammered the Scots in the tight phases. The starting front row of Guthro Steenkamp, Adriaan Strauss and Frans Malherbe were solid with veteran Bakkies Botha and Flip van der Merwe as pillars of strength in the lock position. The loose forward trio of Francious Louw, Duane Vermeulen and Willem Alberts, was uncompromising at the tackle situation as Alberts showcased some huge hits making it very difficult for Scotland to get any momentum. This coupled with an almost flawless display by Pat Lambie, in the unfamiliar role of flyhalf, kept the Springboks on the front foot. South Africa’s backline defence was impeccable, led by world class defence organiser Jacques Fourie who ensured that any front ball that Scotland got had them driven back by a very enthusiastic South African backline.
