27 January 2014 The first Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) ministerial meeting on science, technology and innovation will take place in Kleinmond in the Western Cape from 10 to 11 February, the Department of Science and Technology announced last week. Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom will host the two-day event, which will be attended by science ministers from the BRICS countries. The meeting is one of the activities agreed to at the 5th BRICS summit held in Durban last year. According to the department, the ministers will table a memorandum of understanding aimed at strengthening cooperation between the five countries in science, technology and innovation. The memorandum will also commit the countries to seeking to tackle common socio-economic challenges “through appropriate funding and investment instruments, using shared experiences and complementarities, the co-generation of new knowledge and innovative products, services and processes, and promoting joint BRICS partnerships with other strategic actors in the developing world”. On the second day of the event, the BRICS ministers will visit the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) site in Carnarvon in the Northern Cape, where the MeerKAT radio telescope, a precursor to the SKA, is being constructed.

8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#Product Reviews#web OpenOffice, which, according to our latest poll, is one of the most popular word processors among our readers, just announced the first release candidate for OpenOffice 3. This is the first major release of OpenOffice since 2005. Most of the updates are a lot more subtle than Microsoft’s switch to the Ribbon interface in Office 2007, but the team has added a lot of new functionality and user interface enhancements to the OpenOffice suite that make this a worthwhile release for those who already use OpenOffice.In its early days, OpenOffice (and Sun’s StarOffice before it) was basically a clone of Microsoft Office, but now that Office 2007 has introduced the Ribbon bar, the look and feel of OpenOffice has remained true to the original. In this new version, OpenOffice has modernized the user interface a bit, but overall, there are no major changes to the interface and users of version 2 should feel right at home in this new release. frederic lardinois Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts New FeaturesAmong the new features is a re-designed commenting function, which now displays comments from different editors with colored backgrounds. Also new in this version is the ability to view two pages of a document side-by-side, which, given the size of a lot of modern screens, is a welcome addition.Other new features include a zoom function in the status bar for both the spreadsheet and word processing applications, the ability to create larger spreadsheets, and a presenter mode in Impress.OpenOffice can open and write documents in the OpenDocument format. It can also read Microsoft Office 2007 files, but it does not have the ability to write them.More Love for Mac UsersFor Mac users, the new version also brings some welcome updates. Most importantly, the new version does not rely on X11 anymore, but finally uses the native graphics libraries of OSX and adheres to Apple’s HCI guidelines.It’s Not Office 2007We have been long-time users of Microsoft’s Office 2007 on the PC now, and as much as we love open-source software and open standards, going back to OpenOffice feels a bit like a trip back in time. If you are still using a older version of Office, you will probably feel right back at home in OpenOffice 3, but we do not see a lot of Office 2007 users go back to OpenOffice. The Ribbon bar in Office 2007 represents a major productivity enhancement and having to search your way through long drop-down menus again just feels slow and old-fashioned at this point.

When you’re good at what you do, you don’t typically spend a whole lot of time thinking about what your next job might be or the next company you might work for, let alone the need to construct a better resume. In our work lives, we challenge ourselves to succeed and excel, and make the sacrifices necessary to set ourselves apart. We focus our efforts on building a future; working hard, working smart, and making the right decisions. We see this as the key to our professional development plan. But sound decisions aren’t limited to what we do on the job. What we do beyond the workplace can have a real and vital impact on how our careers unfold.Serving as the gateway to a professional development plan, crafting a quality resume can be one of the most important tasks in your professional career. Unfortunately, it also happens to be one of the most underrated and under-used aspects of professional growth for far too many of us.This is a place where we summarize our experience, our abilities, and our accomplishments. But that alone isn’t enough. To best serve our needs, we have to recognize—and mobilize—the ultimate purpose of the resume. This isn’t intended to be a book report on what you’ve done or the positions you’ve held during your career. It’s not just a snapshot of who you are today. It also must serve as a beacon that leads the reader towards what you’re capable of doing in the future.- Sponsor – The job interviewer isn’t simply interested in what you’ve done or how much you’ve accomplished—other than how that applies to the position that they are looking to fill. What we’ve done in the past has to be seen as an indicator of future performance, and how that information is presented can make a tremendous difference in the way that we are perceived.The resume has to be more than an accumulation of dates and facts. It has to tell a story. It has to grab attention. It has to send a message. But it also has to be honest and genuine. It should be dynamic and confident. It should be organized and concise. It should show the building blocks of your career. It should help you stand out, and stand tall. This document is intended to represent who you are as a professional. It is a point of first impression. As such, it demands your effort and attention to ensure that it fills that role.Every job search is a competition. A company is trying to match their needs with an individual that will best meet all of the different aspects that a particular position entails. Those involved in hiring decisions typically begin the search process by narrowing down the field of potential candidates from among those that have applied. Various strategies may be used to assist decision makers in the process, but one common denominator almost always comes into play – the resume.The resume is a visual and informational representation of the candidate throughout the hiring process. It is a gateway to a successful professional development plan. From entry level positions to the pyramid heads for some of our largest companies, this remains a constant. If we want to set ourselves apart from the pack, then our efforts should start here.For more information on loss prevention careers, visit www.lpjobs.com.

frederic lardinois We have to say, though, that Twitter’s new explanation of itself sounds a bit odd: “Twitter is a rich source of instant information. Stay updated. Keep others updated. It’s a whole thing. You choose and customize every aspect of the service. Lots of people like it. We’d love it if you joined us.” Interestingly, Twitter de-emphasizes the social networking features of the service here and stresses that Twitter is a source of “instant information.” The old homepage simply said: “Share and discover what’s happening right now, anywhere in the world.” According to Twitter’s own announcement, the company wants to stress that Twitter is “not just for status updates anymore”The new homepage also now feature a link to Twitter’s FAQ for business users.A Better Homepage for Novice Users?Given that Twitter has always had a hard time converting new users to regular users, this new homepage is clearly an attempt to better explain the service’s features and functionality to new users. We will have to wait and see if this new homepage will do a better job at converting visitors to regular users. The new explanation of Twitter on the homepage could surely use some tweaking, but the new focus on interesting tweets and users will immediately give newcomers a good idea of how they can use Twitter themselves. A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Twitter just launched an updated, more dynamic homepage. The old, static homepage that didn’t really explain how Twitter really works and just showed a list of trending topic and a search form. The new homepage, on the other hand, features a scrolling list of trending topics, a constantly updating view of tweets from popular Twitter users, a random sampling of suggested users and a new explanation of what Twitter is.
