1 September 2005South Africa’s new School of Tourism and Hospitality, housed in a R47-million custom-built, state-of-the-art facility, aims to train world-class restaurateurs and hospitality “high-flyers” for the country’s burgeoning tourism industry.The new school, situated on the University of Johannesburg’s Auckland Park Campus, boasts ultra-modern kitchens, lecture rooms with hi-tech facilities, computer laboratories and a 150-seater auditorium.The school will combine practical training with a strong commercial component, including two public restaurants, a bar and a wine cellar.The building will also house the SA Chefs Association, the SA Culinary Institute and the Gauteng branch of the Cape Wine Academy.Tourism is a priority sector for South Africa, Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said at the launch of the school on Tuesday.“There needs to be a balance between high quality service, customer care and the attitude of those who serve you, together with the facilities the establishment offers, in order create an unforgettable experience for the tourist,” she said.Kerzner International chairman Sol Kerzner said the school was committed to the highest standards of training, and would ensure that students came away with the ability to make people feel really welcome.Kerzner and his company donated R20-million towards construction of the school, and will be helping the school to link up with the New York School of Hospitality Management and other international institutions in order to benchmark itself against the best hospitality education in the world.“We’re putting our money where our mouths are to help build tourism and hospitality in South Africa”, Kerzner told the Saturday Star. He added, however, that this was no “sentimental gesture”, with a tourism industry “set to burgeon in South Africa”.“I have always been a great believer in tourism potential, and I am confident that this new initiative will elevate the Hotel School to university status and place it on a par with other international hotel schools.”SouthAfrica.info reporter and BuaNews
SharePrint RelatedHow Teens Discover GeocachingJuly 8, 2011In “Community”Featured Geocacher of the Month Award WinnersAugust 25, 2011In “Community”Advantages (and disadvantages) of being a geo-teenJanuary 13, 2016In “Community” By Kara BonillaJeffrey with Geocaching.com Co-Founder and CEO Jeremy Irish at GeoWoodstock VI .Geocaching teenagers are becoming easier and easier to find as geocaching gains popularity. Harder to find are teenage cachers who have found nearly two thousand geocaches. Jeffrey Bushnell, 18, from Utah, USA is better known in the caching community as tico jeffrey. He started geocaching when he was 14. Jeffrey has found 1853 caches to date. He’s also discovered a true passion for the high-tech treasure hunt of geocaching.It all started for Jeffrey as a young Boy Scout, when he won a GPS device after selling tickets at a Boy Scout expo. “I went home after the expo, looked it [geocaching] up online and made an account. Then, less than less than five minutes after creating my account, I got on my bike, grabbed my new GPS, and headed out to find the cache closest to my house.”Jeffrey loves geocaching because he explores new places he has never seen before, gets to spend time outdoors, and relishes the thrill of finding a cache.Now a seasoned geocacher, Jeffrey owns 92 caches. He has gone geocaching in twelve states and two other countries besides the US: Canada and Costa Rica. Jeffery owns 70 Trackables and has moved over 800 Trackables throughout his many geocaching adventures.Statistics from Geocaching.com: Jeffrey’s Cumulative Finds, as of July 20, 2011. Besides his aunt, Auzzie Dogs, Jeffery’s family is full of muggles. For Jeffrey, geocaching on family outings takes planning and convincing his parents to let him find a cache. He has to promise not to take a long time. Having a muggle family often makes the game a bit difficult for him, but Jeffrey never lets this slow him down.Jeffrey has found so many geocaches that he can’t even pick a favorite. He loves the thrill of a good find and always enjoys finding caches hidden by some geocachers in his area: “Both of my favorite users (Baad Daata and Billionj) have many caches that I have looked right at and even touched without finding it at first, these caches require a lot of thinking and strategy to find the exact cache container.”Jeffrey at GC10FB, Magic Kingdom, one of many Virtual Caches in Disney World.Jeffrey became an Eagle Scout and graduated high school this year. He will be attending Brigham Young University this fall where he plans to major in civil engineering and minor in graphic design and production. He loves to cache in his local area of Southern Utah, where he has many friends who always go out geocaching with him. Jeffrey also loves to take his grandma and other relatives out on geocaching adventures.One of Jeffrey’s favorite geocaching memories is when he received GeoWoodstock VI 2008 tickets for Christmas and went to the event in Wheatland, California with his aunt, Auzzie Dogs. “We had a great time and enjoyed meeting Jeremy Irish, also meeting a lot of old and new friends.”As some advice from Jeffrey for new teen geocachers, he suggests taking on one cache at a time, and to have fun with it. To learn more about Jeffrey’s geocaching career and to see his incredible geocaching stats, check out his user page, tico jeffrey. It is easy for teens to become outstanding geocachers, like Jeffrey. It is as simple as creating an account, getting a GPS, grabbing a group of friends, and heading out to find the first of many geocaches. DISCLAIMER: Underage geocachers should always geocache using the buddy-system! Take a parent, relative, or friend along and remember to tell a responsible adult the exact caches you plan on finding and the routes you plan on taking.

Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Our top story this week was Audrey Watters’ report on a survey that asked students how they use technology in the classroom. Almost 300,000 students from kindergarden through 12th grade – along with 43,000 parents, 35,000 teachers, 2,000 librarians, 3,500 administrators – took part in the study.The results show that parents and teachers’ desire to either provide or improve access to digital tools in the classroom is strong. And teachers and administrators are confident they’re doing a good job using technology to enhance how students learn. But fewer than half the kids agreed. And it’s no wonder: The majority of administrators surveyed have no interest in incorporating one of the most common computing devices in the world – the cell phone – into their schools this year.After the jump you’ll find more of this week’s top news stories on some of the key trends that are shaping the Web – mobile, location, Internet of Things – plus highlights from our six channels.

Ajax defender Blind: We pulled the wool over Chelsea’s eyesby Paul Vegas4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveAjax weren’t at their best for watching Chelsea spies after edging past bottom-placed RKC Waalwijk on Saturday.Ajax sneaked a 2-1 away win to go three points clear at the top of the Dutch league as rivals PSV Eindhoven crashed to a 3-0 defeat at Utrecht but Daley Blind said his side got away with a fortunate victory just days before they host Chelsea in the Champions League on Wednesday.“I think it was our worst match in the last two years,” the 29-year-old defender told Dutch television. “We were lucky to come away with the win. We weren’t well organised and we certainly didn’t play with any sharpness.”“They played a long-ball game but nothing fell for us. It was one of those days where we had to grind out a win,” added the former Manchester United player.”It was nice to win this kind of horribly bad game. That’s what it’s about. But we must look at ourselves and ensure this can never happen again.“But hopefully we pulled the wool over Chelsea’s eyes.

COLUMBIA, SC – NOVEMBER 23: Head coach Steve Spurrier of the South Carolina Gamecocks watches on during their game against the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers at Williams-Brice Stadium on November 23, 2013 in Columbia, South Carolina. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images) Twitter/@ESPNChiBearsJon Hoke has been an NFL assistant since 2002. His last stint in college was as Florida defensive coordinator under Steve Spurrier from 1999-2001, and now the Head Ball Coach is trying to reel his former assistant back to the SEC, according to reports.South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier is trying to hire Chicago Bears defensive backs coach Jon Hoke to lead the Gamecocks defense next season, according to multiple sources. This would be the third time Spurrier, since arriving at South Carolina, has attempted to lure Hoke back to the college game. Hoke was Spurrier’s defensive coordinator at Florida from 1999-2001 and has coached in the NFL with the Houston Texans and Chicago Bears ever since. Spurrier reached out to Hoke upon arriving in Columbia in 2004 (hired John Thompson) and in 2007 (hired Brian VanGorder and ultimately Ellis Johnson).Hoke, who is the older brother of former Michigan head coach Brady Hoke, helped Spurrier and Florida win 29 games during his three seasons in Gainesville.[WISTV]

It appears that he’s finally a believer.Saturday, Corso, in Indianapolis ahead of the Big Ten title game between the Spartans and the Iowa Hawkeyes, picked MSU to win the conference. He donned a large Spartans helmet to make his pick.
