The materials outside are resistant to bushfires and the harsh winter climate, while maintaining a crisp and urban finish. The Interiors are an urbane and cultured refuge to a collection of art and indigenous artefacts collected in Africa and Asia. There is no place for whips, saddles and country style clichés.

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Taylor Kuykendall for SNL:As the coal sector crumbles, analysts aim to draw up exactly what the industry might look like once it is pieced back together.Chiza Vitta, an analyst with Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services, said that even though his group covers base metals, precious metals and other mining companies, coal is taking up the bulk of the group’s time these days. The reason such a “significant amount” of time is being dedicated is the industry has gotten into such “severe distress” analysts must continually reassess the sector’s financial health as more and more coal giants fall into bankruptcy or teeter on the edge of it.“There’s a lot of negative sentiment out there,” Vitta said at the recent 24th Annual Platts Coal Properties & Investment conference.In addition to struggling to convince the broader investing public to get on board with coal, the industry is also seeing hesitancy in conventional lenders and other financiers, Vitta said. This is has caused debt to trade at distressed levels and prompted a trend toward more “private money” on the table from certain strategic investors.The result is merger and acquisition activity in early 2016 that is “well behind” the year before, even though coal assets have become available at rock bottom prices.Full article ($): Bankruptcy, tightened market cloud coal’s future as headwinds continue in 2016 SNL: 2016 ‘Headwinds’ Facing U.S. Coallast_img read more

first_imgJan Braai wants the nation to unite around a fire on Heritage Day. Photo: braai.com By Anne Taylor23 September 2013September 24 is Heritage Day in South Africa – a public holiday intended to focus the nation’s attention on the importance of South Africa’s diverse cultural heritage and traditions. It is a day when we are called on to find unity in our diversity.“When our first democratically elected government decided to make Heritage Day one of our national days, we did so because we knew that our rich and varied cultural heritage has a profound power to help build our new nation. We did so knowing that the struggles against the injustice and inequities of the past are part of our national identity; they are part of our culture. We knew that, if indeed our nation has to rise like the proverbial phoenix from the ashes of division and conflict, we had to acknowledge those whose selfless efforts and talents were dedicated to this goal of non-racial democracy.” – Nelson Mandela, Heritage Day speech, 1996This year’s theme, set by the government, is “reclaiming, restoring and celebrating our living heritage”. In Cape Town, entrance to all Iziko museums will be free during heritage week, from 23 to 29 September.Read about the in_herit festival at Cape Town’s Company Gardens and other Heritage Day activities on Play Your Part: Celebrate SA’s rich heritage For many South Africans, Heritage Day is also unofficially national braai day. Originally the initiative of Jan Scannell, known as Jan Braai, South Africans haven’t needed much encouragement to light a fire and braai. Yes, you can barbeque anywhere, but you can only braai in South Africa!“It is called many things: Chisa Nyama, Braai and Ukosa to name few. Although the ingredients may differ, the one thing that never changes is that when we have something to celebrate we light fires, and prepare great feasts,” Jan writes on his website, braai.com.In a recent inteview with NPR, Jan uses boerewors (a South African sausage) as the perfect analogy to describe the rainbow nation: “You’ve got sausage-making skills from Europe that came with the European settlers to Africa. Then you’ve got spices and the knowledge of how to use them from the East, stuff like coriander, nutmeg, cloves and then in Africa it was very typical to cook all your food on a fire.”Smoke, charred meat and a cold beer – what’s not to love? See you across the flames tomorrow.Read more on SouthAfrica.info: Celebrate South Africa on Braai DayJan Braai’s Top 10 braai tips on CapeTownMagazine.comlast_img read more

Mehr Jessia Rampal organised fashion shows organised, top-flight players put in an appearance and the then IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi preened. It’s another story that last year’s dos were blamed for the poor performance of several cricketers. So much so that when Chirayu Amin took charge of the IPL after Modi’s exit, the first thing he objected to was the ‘specially ticketed event’ leading to a ban on after-parties.In IPL Season 4, the parties have been banned-not for cricketers or the sponsors, but for the media. And for cheerleaders as well, ever since Gabriella Pasqualotto, 22, blew the whistle on the seamier side of the game, describing cheerleaders as “walking porn” and certain cricketers as “naughty”. Most top Indian cricketers now take the party elsewhere, smoking and drinking discreetly behind closed doors-away from the prying eyes of the fans and fanfare. The foreign players hang around disconsolately.Take the IPL party after the Bangalore match, where Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) beat Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on May 13. It was the day after Pasquolotto had been sent off to Johannesburg, South Africa, for writing an all-too-frank blog. There were no young girls in hot pants. Cricketers Virat Kohli, Abhimanyu Mithun, Brett Lee, Jacques Kallis and Mark Boucher walked in a good three hours after the match and stuck together. Tilakaratne Dilshan and Chris Gayle didn’t dance with the girls as they did after the win on May 8.advertisementGabriella Pasqualotto has described cheerleaders asAnd it’s all thanks to “Gabby”, aka Pasquolotto, who is now fielding offers of a Bollywood movie and an Indian reality TV show. “We’re as good as grounded. Like little schoolchildren,” says a cheerleader referring to her former teammate from Mumbai Indians. In Bangalore, the girls missing from the party were the White Mischief cheerleaders, named after the vodka brand that belongs to Vijay Mallya’s United Spirits Limited. “We are in a country where we don’t know anyone. Why would we not want to go to a party and have some fun? What Gabby did was very unprofessional,” says a cheerleader for Mumbai Indians.”We do have people to look after us, but that doesn’t mean the odd sponsor won’t paw us at a party. All this ogling in public can be unsettling, but you get used to it after a bit,” says a cheerleader from Kings XI Punjab. IPL has sourced most of its cheerleaders from South Africa, thanks to their familiarity with cricket. “We all love cricket and that’s one of the reasons we were chosen,” says Denise Schoeman, 24, a White Mischief girl. Schoeman is a beauty pageant winner back home and this is her second season with IPL. Cheerleaders are reportedly paid 8,000 rand (Rs 52,000) a month.What about the ogling by the Indian spectators? “We have received so much warmth. We go shopping and buy saris, or go out for a meal, escorted of course, and I cannot tell you how much fun we have. We have absolutely no cause for complaint,” says Schoeman.Neither does Pasqualotto, who will return to India to attend the inaugural Formula 1 event in October. “My agent will talk later,” she said in an e-mail to India Today. “I cannot divulge details,” Amanda, her mother, said when asked if Pasqualotto had already landed film role. Who knows, she just might make it to the IPL Season 5 after-party as a star guest.last_img read more
