Active citizenship in South Africa at a healthy level

first_imgMatjididi Mokono (centre) is an example of active citizenship in motion. She opened up an orphan centre in 2002 to feed and educate children in the village of GaMagoa in Limpopo. Active citizenship in South Africa has risen in recent years. (Images: Shamin Chibba)More than 10 years ago, when Matjididi Mokono was a primary school teacher, she looked at her community in GaMagoa, Limpopo, and saw its children struggling to live. They were not being fed well enough, many lived with their grandparents, and they were trying to get by in an environment rife with crime, alcoholism and drug abuse.Mokono did something about it. She left her post as a teacher and started Mponogele Le Iterele Orphan Centre under a tree. The initiative was meant to feed and educate the local children. “I wanted to help the children and support their family members who feel overloaded too,” she said.So successful was the project, Mokono started receiving support from the likes of Eskom, Brand South Africa and even overseas funders. Today, the centre has moved from the tree to a property with a small hall, a kitchen and even a computer room.It is people like Mokono who are pushing up South Africa’s score on the active citizenship index, which currently sits at 68%.The index forms part of Brand South Africa’s Domestic Perceptions Survey, which measures both active citizenship and social cohesion. It also contributes to developing an understanding of how South Africans perceive the nation brand based on national pride, attitudes, values and beliefs. On the whole, the survey found South Africans to be positive and optimistic about the future of the country.“South Africans tend to speak badly about themselves,” said Brand South Africa’s research manager Judy Smith-Höhn. “There’s a general tendency to say things are terrible. But what we are able to do is tell the positive story. We’re not looking to cover up challenges.”ACTIVE CITIZENSHIPWhile the active citizenship score was considered good, Smith-Höhn said there was still a lot of work to be done to take it to a level that was considered strong.The score implies that more than half of South Africans participate actively in their respective communities. But the study sample showed that 29% were involved community members who were always willing to contribute to their communities. The bulk of the sample, 53%, would like to be involved members but did not always have the time or money to do so.Level of involvement by percentage. (Images: Brand South Africa)The above graph shows the extent of the respondents’ involvement in their communities. (Images: Brand South Africa)SOCIAL COHESIONSouth Africans were starting to feel they belonged to the country and that they wanted to be here, said Smith-Höhn.The country’s social cohesion score was 73 out of 100, which was a healthy sign, she said. “We have a very high social cohesion index, which is surprising if you think of where we come from as a country.”Based on questions posed to all respondents, research findings revealed that almost half of South African citizens had a strong feeling of cohesion (45%) while 21% had a good sense of cohesion.A breakdown of the social cohesion index. (Images: Brand South Africa)Social cohesion in the Brand South Africa context refers to the degree to which people are integrated in society. Furthermore, it looks at how society’s solidarity finds expression among individuals and communities.In a country with diverse histories, cultures and religions, people feel their living environments are improving. There are fewer feelings of inequality, exclusion and disparity. More than half the respondents felt they were always part of the bigger South African community, and only 10% felt they were always excluded. The remaining 36% said they were sometimes excluded.The above graph indicates the respondents’ feeling of inclusion as a South African citizen. They had to pick one of the above three statements that best described their feelings as an individual living in South Africa. (Images: Brand South Africa)Despite the good vibes South Africans were emanating, the Domestic Perceptions Survey noted that lower income earners were showing some frustration. “The slight dissatisfaction among South Africans around the feelings of inclusion are, in fact, the reason why social cohesion is ‘good’ and not ‘strong.’”According to Brand South Africa, social cohesion improves a country’s economic performance because a more equal society and environment correlate with positive outcomes such as good health, child development and labour market adjustments.The above graph broke down the feelings of inclusion by income levels. A high level of respondents (57%) felt they were part of the bigger South African community. (Images: Brand South Africa) Social cohesion forms a large part of the social sustainability element in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Index. Even Mo Ibrahim, the billionaire Sudanese-British mobile communications mogul, emphasised the importance of social cohesion at the 11th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in 2013.The National Development Plan (NDP) has made social cohesion one of its priorities for the 2014-2019 electoral mandate. According to the NDP, its objectives are to reduce inequality of opportunity and enable the sharing of common space.ACTIVE CITIZENRY LINKED TO UNITYThe Domestic Perceptions Survey linked active citizenship and social cohesion. It found that an active citizenry was a key component of a more socially cohesive society. “Citizens need to help shape the development process and hold the government to account for the quality of services it delivers.”The report offered two recommendations: promote youth participation as a way to enhance active citizenship and promote inclusiveness among marginalised groups to enhance feelings of cohesiveness.last_img read more

NAB 2019: What We Saw at the Blackmagic Design Booth

first_imgOur team in Las Vegas at NAB 2019 hit the showroom and reported back on everything they found at the Blackmagic Design booth.The PremiumBeat team (except for me because nobody likes me) is terrorizing NAB right now, talking and meeting with creators, checking out all the new gear announcements from companies like Blackmagic, Aputure, Sony, etc. So, Todd Blankenship just sent over a giant picture dump of what he saw at the Blackmagic Booth. It’s a lot. Between the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 and Blackmagic RAW, it’s been a stacked couple of weeks for the company.Today Blackmagic also announced their impressive update to Resolve 16, with its own “Object Removal” — as well as their new keyboard.So, as Todd and Robbie met with Blackmagic, specifically with Bob Caniglia, they got their hands on some of the gear and took a look at the new updates to Resolve. Here are some of their thoughts.Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K (with New Battery Grip)The new battery grip uses Sony L batteries, and each L battery is supposed to give the shooter two hours of runtime, which as Todd points out  “Should give you up to four times as much battery life as the Canon LP-E6 batteries.” He goes on to describe the grip attachment.They built the Pocket Cinema Camera with a removable door on purpose for advancements like these. Overall, the grip feels nice and solid, and most importantly, it doesn’t inhibit the use of the camera in any way. It almost gives it the look and feel of a DSLR with a similar battery gripURSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2Todd shoots with an URSA Mini Pro, so the look and feel of the new camera was no surprise for him. This is a good thing, though. With a camera as powerful as this, the updates just take it to the next level. Trust me: I saw how happy Todd was when the camera was announced.Looks and feels just like the URSA Mini Pro, except with the new features.The New Editing KeyboardWhile Todd and Robbie were at the booth, they spoke with Bob about the keyboard and why it’s worth the steep $1,000 price tag. Bob explained:You can do a lot more with it than you’d think — it’s about learning how to use it, and then convincing yourself that you don’t ever need to use the mouse.Todd had some thoughts as well, as he was able to try out the keyboard in Resolve.There are a lot of tie-ins to a linear tape-based workflow. In some ways it’s an homage to the old editing controls from the tape-based days. The replaceable key caps have a responsive feel. There’s also a really dope jog wheel that can switch between shuttle, jog, and scroll — this is a classic, responsive system that will have you editing faster and more intuitively.The keyboard will be released in August and is officially priced at $995.DaVinci Resolve 16One of the standout features of the update was the focus on expediting the editing process with Resolve’s new “Cut Page.” Todd shared some thoughts and impressions:It’s a new workflow for making edits that will work great with the new keyboard and is intended in every way to make edits faster and more intuitive.One feature they’ve added is the ability to remove pages you don’t use from the interface — that way you can use the software how you want to use it. If you’re just a colorist, you don’t have to worry about the edit or cut page. You can just hide it.To me, it sounds like all the major NLEs are focusing on customizable UI and listening to user feedback. Giving the editors more options for their workflow experience seems to be paying off in a big way.The whole thing was about preserving the previous workflow while adding new ways to use the software — which is why I love Blackmagic — they want you to use their products how you want to use them.As for Fusion 16, Resolve is still working on fine-tuning the relatively new effects-based software that’s meant to be their answer to After Effects.Fusion 16 is working toward getting it completely worked into DaVinci in the future, but for now there is still a stand-alone version, but with each version of DaVinci, they are finding ways to incorporate more features into the software.The week has just begun, so be sure to check back in on our boys to see what they thought about all the newest releases.Looking for more on film and video production?
