first_imgJohannesburg, Tuesday 7 January 2014 – Brand South Africa congratulates the class of 2013 on their improved results and welcomes this as a positive contribution to the long terms development of South Africa.Brand South Africa CEO, Miller Matola said, “We congratulate the class of 2013 on their improved results as well as the teachers and parents who have played their part to support our learners to do best.  The improvement in the overall national pass rate and particularly in maths bodes well for the creation of a knowledge economy.  We are also pleased that the number of learners who will be able to enter university has increased.””“The National Development Plan clearly states that education, training and innovation are central to South Africa’s long-term development. They are core elements in alleviating poverty and reducing inequality.  Education enables each child to have an equal opportunity to do what they are best at.  The 2013 matric results indicate that South Africa is on the right trajectory to achieving this.”“As students, parents and teachers prepare for the 2014 academic year, we need to remember that it is the responsibility of parents and communities to play their part and support their children to ensure that they remain focused throughout the year. It is also the responsibility of teachers to inspire and assist students to do best at school and beyond.”“The ultimate responsibility of success lies with you, the learner.  It is vital that learners recognise that education provides the opportunity for them to discover their full potential.  Do not be afraid to set your own goals and aspire to meet each one!”Learners who did not succeeded in passing their matric examinations should not be discouraged, they should try again or register for the supplementary examinations. Remember the words of Nelson Mandela when he said, “Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do,” concluded Matola.Note to editorsMinister Motshekga’s announcement of the 2013 matric results:http://www.education.gov.za/Newsroom/Speeches/tabid/298/ctl/Details/mid/2907/ItemID/3871/Default.aspxThe 2013 Matric Results can be accessed as follows:http://www.education.gov.za/MatricResults/ExamResults/tabid/175/Default.aspxAbout Brand South AfricaBrand South Africa is the official marketing agency of South Africa, with a mandate to build the country’s brand reputation, in order to improve its global competitiveness abroad.

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… sarah perez Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Google Wave, the maddeningly confusing yet highly innovative real-time collaboration tool, will become a member of Google’s online office suite Google Apps later this year. The service, still in closed beta, is meant to be a modern-day revamp of email – what email would be if it was invented in 2009 instead of the 1960’s. Yet the interface, a mashup of email, chat, and collaborative document editing, left many early adopters with mixed feelings about the product…at least in its current form. Called “unproductive,” “complex,” and “overwhelming” by the same people who usually embrace new technologies, it seems an odd choice to add the still-developing Wave service to the Google Apps line-up at this time. But Google has confirmed they will do exactly that.As mentioned in a blog post late last year, Google is now preparing to roll out Wave to Google Apps customers along with the VoIP service Google Voice and 200 other improvements and updates to their current suite of office tools. Google Wave: Innovative, ConfusingThe technologies at the core of Google Wave are impressive. With an HTML5-enabled interface and real-time protocols for instant interaction, Wave was highly anticipated among tech enthusiasts prior to its launch. However, once beta testers gained access to the redesigned inbox experience delivered by Wave, the results were those of confusion, feelings of being overwhelmed and apparently, eventual abandonment. That’s not to say Google Wave is a failure. The service is just a little too raw right now for everyday use by a majority of internet users. The problem with Wave stems from its overcrowded inbox of “waves” – threads of conversation updated in real-time. Within a wave, users can have IM-like chats, share and edit documents, and even “replay” a wave to see a history of the changes made. At launch time, anyone using the service could add any other user to a wave – even if that other user had no interest in participating. This led to an inbox filled with waves, only some of which may have been relevant or interesting. In addition, communicating in real-time, while nice for IM, may not be as productive when attempting to share the sort of longer thoughts and instructions typically sent out via email.  There are ways Wave could be streamlined for better ease-of-use, though. Whitelisting and blacklisting tools could lock down waves to invited participants only and better filtering mechanisms could help high-priority waves rank higher than others. Not all of these tools are available yet in the current version of the product, though, and some may never be. Google Apps Users to Become Beta Testers?Google is also investigating how to integrate some of Wave’s features into their other products. According to Google Enterprise President Dave Girouard,the company is “trying to learn and see what sort of use cases evolve from it and how it changes.” Yet even he admitted that Wave is “not nearly at the level of understanding and readiness of the core Google Apps services.”So why is Google rushing to roll it out this year? The answer may be that Google simply wants a larger test bed to help them generate ideas for improving the service. Although we’ve highlighted several usecases for Wave in the past, a good many people still say they don’t see the need for it. But all the effort and development that went into building a product like Wave isn’t likely something Google wants to abandon so soon. Tags:#Google#web last_img read more
