Wine tourism network grows

first_imgStellenbosch is just one of thebreathtakingly beautiful wine-makingareas to be found in the Cape winelands.By Vuyiseka GezaSouth Africa’s wine lands located in the Cape floral kingdom boast the most beautiful geographical surroundings. It is this natural beauty that has boosted wine tourism in the Western Cape. Famous for producing new-world wines, a rather peculiar term for an industry that has been around for more than three centuries, the Cape wine lands rank among the best in the world, and so do the wines they produce.The secret to these flavoursome wines lies in the diversity of soils along with that of climate, forming the perfect “terroir”. It is for this natural gift that the wine routes have incorporated hospitality into winemaking, creating a combination of natural beauty, upmarket accommodation and world-class restaurants.“Our wineries are diverse, offering many different wines and experiences and we work on each member’s strengths. There is a lot of sharing of information and knowledge,” says Bonita Malherbe, manager of the Robertson Wine Valley.Linking-up with the Great Wine Capitals Network, the Cape wineries have mixed traditional with cutting-edge technology. Quoted in Winescape magazine, Clarence Johnson, Cape Winelands District Municipality Mayor, says, “The network provides an important forum for the public and private sectors to explore business and investment opportunities. Through the exchange of information and expertise, we can enhance not only wine tourism, but also South Africa’s global competitiveness.”Unique ambienceDue to soil, climate and cultural diversity, the Cape wine lands are a combination of Bilbao-Rioja (cultural sites, cuisine and food), Florence (scenery, olive groves and art galleries), Melbourne (seaside resorts, mountains and diverse climate), and San Franscisco (golf resorts, food and wine festivals) all in one. They are purely for you to enjoy, relax and be inspired.The winemakers have taken responsibility for land conservation by supporting the Biodiversity and Wine Initiative to conserve over 50 000 hectares of land. This will be achieved by conserving one hectare as a natural habitat for every hectare of vineyard farmed by 2010.Lush vineyards surrounding first-world wine cellars at the foot of the mountains, sea views and the beautiful valleys all create a unique ambience. And each of the destinations makes a unique contribution to wine tourism.Where to stop on the wine routeAt the Robertson Wine Valley you can enjoy the half marathon mountain biking challenge, boat cruises, sunset game drives, live music, wine tastings, children’s activities, hiking, picnics and wine museum tours. The Robertson Wacky Wine Weekend, at the beginning of June, is already booked out for this year – but don’t miss it next year. In 2010 the festival will take place from 4- June before the World Cup.Only 10 years ago Durbanville Hills celebrated its first wines, and they now constitute one of the most popular premium ranges in the country – for those with expensive taste. This is no surprise, as their chardonnay was awarded a gold medal at Veritas.At Tulbagh you can look forward to experiencing the heritage and magnificent country living, tranquillity being the operative word. They host the most beautiful and memorable country weddings. You can also indulge in cheese, chocolate and olive tastings, enjoy cape cuisine and see art museums.The Wonderful Wines of Darling is what the wine evenings are called at Darling Wines, where you can enjoy the wines with gourmet braais.South African brandy is made from distilled wine, so it makes sense that the wine routes would comprise of brandy routes as well, which make a different contribution to the panorama. Brandy and chocolate complement each other, which is why the Western Cape and R62 Brandy Routes offer exclusive brandy and chocolate tastings.In Stellenbosch, South Africa’s first dedicated house of sparkling wines – JC Le Roux – situated in the heart of the picturesque Devon Valley, has reopened its doors after extensive refurbishments. Here you can expect insightful cellar tours and tastings in the ultra-modern cellar, fun-filled picnics in the sun and mouth-watering meals at the deli-style restaurant. The new oyster bar, with sea-fresh oysters and the finest bubblies, is the ultimate hotspot for a pick-me-up pampering.At Santé Wineland Estate you will be pampered at their wellness centre with vinotherapy (using products made from grapes).With all this on offer, what more could one ask for? Lest you forget! After the Winter Season festivals, Springtime is Sauvignon Blanc time and you know the Western Cape is where it’s at.

South Africa pours millions into sanitation

first_img2 June 2015Growing up in Evaton, in Gauteng, Themba Msukwini had to use a bucket system. Like many in Evaton, Msukwini he had no access to basic sanitation services and as a result struggled to live a dignified life.But much has changed for Msukwini since those days. He now owns a home with a flush toilet inside his house, thanks to a multibillion-rand project the government has introduced to help people like him.The Sedibeng Regional Sewer Scheme (SRSS), a project expected to cost about R4.2-billion, is set to change many lives in the municipal area of Sedibeng.It was identified by the Presidential Infrastructure Co-ordinating Commission (PICC) and approved as a Strategic Infrastructure Project (SIP). There are 18 SIPs across the country devised to solve issues such as raw sewage spillage, as well as unlock job opportunities and improve service delivery. Upgrading Sedibeng’s sewerage system will not only improve the state of sanitation and human settlements in the district municipality, but will also serve as a source of employment and poverty alleviation.Job creationAbout 6 000 jobs are also expected to during construction. The job opportunities include the appointment of suitable local sub-contractors, local people and helping unemployed youth qualified in the relevant engineering fields by giving them relevant work experience. The project is expected to be completed in the next three years.Msukwini is impressed by the SRSS project because not only will it create jobs for the community but there will also be skills development.“The most exciting part about this project is that people will also be trained in various skills like plumbing,” he says. “This will benefit the community since we have a huge problem of leakages due to old water pipes, which were installed early in the 1970s.“The project will further fast track the building of low-cost houses because you can’t build houses without a sewer system. The sooner the sewer system is installed, [the sooner] houses will be built and people will finally have houses with basic needs.”Decent basic sanitationMsukwini acknowledges the strides already made to ensure that people have decent sanitation, but cautions that it is important to monitor that the money is well- managed when it is allocated from national to provincial government. People with the appropriate skills to deliver quality work should be employed to do the job, he says.“This will help the government to avoid unnecessary spending on repairs due to shoddy work.”The Department of Water and Sanitation declared May Sanitation and Hygiene Month to remind South Africans about the importance of decent sanitation and good hygiene practices. This year, the theme was “It’s not all about flushing”.The aim was to raise awareness and the public profile of sanitation and to encourage local governments to prioritise sanitation, health and hygiene as key issues to build a healthy nation.South Africa achieved the Millennium Development Goal of halving the proportion of the population without basic sanitation before the target of 2015. In the 2014/15 financial year alone, it eradicated 20 560 bucket systems.Ending the bucket systemWater and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane says the department intends to conclude the eradication of the bucket system programme in formal areas by December 2015. However, she acknowledges that the challenge of access to water and sanitation continues to characterise the daily life of many people.Statistics show that the country has been increasing access to sanitation. But the pace of delivery remains a concern. According to the 2012 National Report on the Status of Sanitation Services, approximately 11% of South African households do not have adequate sanitation services.Some of the challenges in sanitation can be traced to urban migration and the proliferation of unplanned informal settlements. Mokonyane says the country has committed to join the world in enhancing and fast-tracking programmes and developments to fulfil the international commitment to eradicate sanitation backlogs by 2015.“In response to the global sanitation-related challenges, the South African government has set out higher targets and committed itself to ensuring that all buckets in formal established settlements will be eradicated as soon as possible.”Saving drinking waterThe current methods of disposing human waste through flushing toilets that use drinking-quality water are unwise and unsustainable, she adds. Her department is looking at numerous technologies that will help to eliminate the use of clean, drinkable water to dispose of human waste.“We are determined to introduce low-water and no-water solutions as part of our efforts to deliver sanitation. Dry sanitation solutions must become the reality we work towards in both low- and high-income households going forward.’Working with the Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs and National Treasury, her department has adopted the Back-to-Basics programme aimed at supporting municipalities with resources accompanied by capacity to bolster performance in the delivery of water and sanitation.Through this programme, 27 district municipalities and the Nelson Mandela Metro have been identified as areas in need of interventions. Bold interventions have also been made in areas including Makana Local Municipality in Eastern Cape, Ngaka Modiri Molema District in North West Province, Bushbuckridge in Mpumalanga, Sedibeng in Gauteng and Jozini in KwaZulu-Natal.Partnering with provincial governments through premiers, her department has put in place community-based initiatives as part of a people-centred approach to ensure communities are involved in work in their respective areas.The establishment of community water forums is a direct result of the interventions her department has undertaken and the affirmation given to communities and their leaders as partners in the department’s programmes.It has also initiated the Adopt a River programme, which has been launched in a number of provinces as a community-driven initiative.Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more

Are Tankless Water Heaters Really Green?

first_imgFirst, limit hot water useNo matter how the water is heated, using less of it conserves energy. That’s a no-brainer. But posters differed on the best ways to accomplish that seemingly simple end, especially when children and teens live at home.That’s simple, Riversong says: “The only ‘green’ way to save water heating energy is to use less hot water. Unfortunately, that requires imbuing our children with the old-fashioned ethics of forbearance and limits – and no piece of technology is going to do that. It’s part of the responsibility of parenting.”Besides, he adds, people seem hung up on taking frequent showers in the first place. With water shortages expected to become a major problem, it’s better for health as well as the environment to bathe less often. After all, that strategy served our forbears just fine.Lucas Durand came across an interesting conservation approach when he visited his brother in South Korea. The brother’s small apartment was served by a tankless hot water heater, but it could be activated only by pushing a button on a control panel. That got you 10 minutes worth of water. If you wanted more, you had to press the button again. The “big catch” was that you could press the button only five times in a 24-hour period, and that had to cover all hot-water needs, not just showers.“This set-up may not have been typical of every home in Korea, but it does show that concepts of hot water use vary widely even within the developed world,” Durand wrote. “In other words there are many, many people living in civilized parts of the world that do just fine on what some North Americans might consider a water ration.”Danny Waite had another suggestion: an $8 ball valve installed on the hot side of the water heater. It could be shut off whenever a shower went on too long. “My teenage sons quickly learned to limit shower times to under 5 minutes after instantaneously having their hot water eliminated,” he says. “Cold water seems to awaken the senses and get one to think ‘green.’” Pros and cons of tankless heatersWelch writes that according to the Department of Energy, a tankless heater should save between $100 and $150 per year when compared to an Energy Star storage heater. But, he adds, the savings aren’t significant and they probably don’t factor in the long-shower problem. Moreover, tankless units cost two or three times as much as the best storage units, require a stainless steel flue, are difficult to install and cost more to maintain.You got it, answers Robert Riversong. “You’re quite right that the super-sized burners on high-volume tankless heaters make no ecological sense,” he says. In addition to high initial costs and higher maintenance costs, Riversong adds, hard water can leave mineral deposits in the heat-transfer coils, which may force the purchase of a water softener. RELATED ARTICLES Storage vs. Tankless Water HeatersWater Heating Q&A: How do I reconcile an electric, tankless water heater and low flow faucets?Solar Hot Water: Heating Water With the Sun Isn’t CheapSolar HeatHot-Water Circulation GREEN PRODUCT GUIDE Tankless water heaters have one advantage over conventional storage units: no standby losses. Instead of keeping water hot around the clock, regardless of whether it’s actually needed, tankless units heat water only when a tap or an appliance is turned on. By rights, this should mean lower energy consumption, a decidedly green advantage.But, as Ed Welch asks in a Q&A post, where are the savings when he can’t get his kids out of the shower? “I know we waste more water, as a result waste more energy heating that water,” he writes. “And the kids are not even teenagers yet!”In addition to arguing the merits of tankless vs. tank heaters, Green Building Advisor readers had plenty of suggestions on the most economical ways of heating water and how to reduce consumption.center_img Water Heaters, Fuel-Fired ResidentialYes, says Michael Chandler, a builder in Chapel Hill, NC, on-demand hot water heaters are “more of a luxury than an energy conserving solution,” but keep in mind that most gas tank-style hot water hears are only about 60% efficient. Electric heaters can be even worse from an efficiency point of view. If the source of utility power is a coal-fired plant, only about a third of the energy potential of coal is actually available at the panel, making it “practically criminal” to use one of these appliances.“One thing not mentioned in this discussion is that a tankless HWH is a great solution for some, not all,” writes Richard. He lives alone, is frequently away from home and doesn’t see the point of keeping 40 gallons of water hot around the clock. “I use cold water for laundry and quick hand washing,” he says. “My only hot water use is showers, dishwashing and washing up.” Looking for economy water heatingIf on-demand heaters are not a shoo-in for most economical, what is?Riversong’s suggestion is an indirect hot water tank connected to a high-efficiency boiler. Indirect heaters have no heat source of their own but tap into the boiler via a heat exchanger. The arrangement, he says, provides nearly unlimited hot water as it heats the house with very low standby losses. Fuel consumption is a fraction of what a large tankless unit would use.Chandler proposes using a tankless heater to heat water in a tank, in much the same way an indirect system uses a boiler, and adds a link to an illustration (with a warning that while he’s a licensed plumber, there’s still something of a “mad scientist experimentation” at work).Solar hot water collectors are another possibility, but here opinions were divided on whether the sizable investment they require is going to pay off.While Chandler thinks solar collectors will reduce energy consumption, fellow GBA senior editor Martin Holladay writes that most people won’t see a payback for between 30 and 60 years. In particular, he cited a 2006 study by Steven Winter Associates that examined a $7,800 solar hot water system in Massachusetts and a $6,500 system in Wisconsin.In the case of Massachusetts, annual savings were a measly $135 with a payback of 58 years; in Wisconsin, savings were even lower, $86 years, with a payback after 76 years. “Finally,” he adds, “it should be pointed out that the researchers assumed zero maintenance costs — and we all know that’s not going to happen.”Stephane Boisjoli suggests the installation of a drain water heat-recovery system, which captures transfer heat from the water draining from a shower to the incoming water supply. These passive devices are installed vertically to replace a section of conventional drain line. There are no moving parts, and no maintenance. Savings can be considerable.Finally, there are on-demand hot-water circulation systems in which hot water is pumped to its point of use after a button is pressed or a motion sensor in the bathroom goes off. As the water warms up, it’s recirculated so none of it is wasted. After a short wait, when the shower or tap is turned on, hot water is available right away. For long plumbing runs, such a system might make sense.last_img read more

Sophomore attackman Molly Wood led OSU with four goals, while senior attackman Cian Dabrowski added two goals and three assists. Dabrowski leads the team with 25 goals this season. Most of the scoring happened in the first period after senior midfielder Kelsey Gallagher set the tone, scoring a goal a mere two minutes in. Binghamton tied it up a minute later, and the game remained tied until junior midfielder Paulina Constant scored the first of three straight goals from the Buckeyes, giving them a 4-1 lead. The game went back and forth from there, but Wood scored two consecutive goals to give OSU a 8-4 advantage at halftime. Wood scored another goal just 33 seconds into the second half, making the score 9-4 in favor of OSU. Dabrowski added the last Buckeye goal with 20 minutes left. Senior goalkeeper Katie Frederick earned the win, registering six saves. The Buckeye defense had a solid performance, holding the Bearcats to five goals, and OSU outshot Binghamton 32-15 and forced 20 turnovers.OSU then beat Hofstra in an 18-8 victory on Sunday. The win marked OSU coach Alexis Venechanos’ 100th career victory and boosted the Buckeyes’ record to 9-1, which equals the program record for the best start to a campaign.Dabrowski tallied a career-high six goals on just seven shots, giving her 100 goals for her career. Wood added four goals and tied her career high with 13 draw controls. Senior attackman Rainey Hodgson contributed five assists on the day. She has 20 assists on the year, which already eclipses her season total from 2015.The Buckeyes were in control the entire game, netting the first nine goals of the match, the first of which came just 15 seconds in. OSU held a 14-3 advantage in draw controls in the first half and outshot the Pride 18-7. OSU led the game 14-3 by halftime. The Buckeyes’ biggest lead was 18-3 with 20 minutes left, before they surrendered five goals after the game was already out of reach. Frederick picked up another win, making two saves in the game.
