SA police applauded for drop in crime

first_img21 September 2012 South Africa’s police have been commended for their intelligence gathering and partnerships with business and society, which contributed to the decrease in crimes such as car hijackings and bank robberies in 2011/12. Speaking to SAnews following the release of the national crime statistics on Thursday, Dr Hamadziripi Tamukamoyo, a researcher at the Institute for Security Studies, noted the decline in crimes such as car hijackings, bank robberies, ATM bombings and cash-in-transit heists. Dealing with crimes like these required intelligence gathering and sharing of information between stakeholders, Tamukamoyo said. “In that regard we can commend the police.”Business robberies ‘worrying’ Tamukamoyo pointed out, however, that the rise in business robberies, by 7.5%, was worrying. He said small businesses were a major source of employment for the poor. However, some could not afford the necessary security to protect themselves and would find it hard to grow if they became the targets of robbers. He added that while it was good that there was a new strategy to deal with business robberies, the success of the strategy would rely on its implementation. Earlier, Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa announced that a strategy was being finalised to combat robberies at small businesses. He said there would be engagement, through the civilian secretariat of police, with the relevant parties to ensure the implementation of the strategy soon. Tamukamoyo said he hoped that in future the country’s crime statistics would be more detailed and released on a more regular basis.Call to fight ‘scourge of drugs’ Meanwhile, Crime Line has welcomed the drop in certain categories of crime, but said that the rise in drug-related crimes, by 15.6%, was a big concern. “The latest statistics echo our call for a renewed and multi-partner effort to fight the scourge of drugs in communities,” said Crime Line co-ordinator Marisa Oosthuizen. “Crime Line is currently working on a large-scale campaign to bring the relevant stakeholders together to actively fight the scourge.” Plenty of work still to be done: Mthethwa Police Minister Mthethwa called on Thursday for more action and less talk in the fight against crime. Although the national crime statistics for 2011/12 showed a decrease in most crime categories, Mthethwa said there were still areas of concern and more hard work to be done. “There will always be disappointment in the fight against crime as long as you have crime in the country, as long as from a perception point of view people don’t feel safe. “This is a road that is always under construction,” Mthethwa said. “There will never be a situation … where we will say we have arrived in terms on fighting crime, so it’s an ongoing struggle.” But progress had been made, the minister said. This was evident in the decline in murder, contact crimes, organised crime, ATM bombing and other categories of crime. “We are not there yet, but with the participation of all sectors, we are turning the tide against crime. We must win the battle against crime, in whatever form it manifests itself.” The minister said he wanted more success, particularly with sexual offences and rapes, which were worryingly high despite a 3.7% and 1.9% decrease respectively. These crimes affected the most vulnerable – women and children – and more effort needed to be made to stamp them out, he said. Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

Here are seven questions you need to ask and answer to test the potency and effectiveness of your value proposition.(1) Is it different? If you want your value proposition to do its job for you, you need it to speak to your differentiation strategy. You need it do drive a wedge between your dream client and your competitors. Can anybody do what you do the way you do it?(2) Is it compelling? If your value proposition doesn’t speak to your dream client’s business drivers and their strategic goals, then it isn’t compelling. If it isn’t compelling, then it isn’t an effective value proposition. How does it speak to the need for change?(3) Is it tailored? You start with a very general value proposition as to how your company creates value. But as you engage with the stakeholders within your dream client company, you create a more specific value proposition tailored to their needs. If it isn’t tailored to their individual needs, it isn’t compelling.(4) Is it measurable? Your value proposition must be measurable. You may not need to get to a complex or complicated return on investment analysis, but you do need to describe how you will measure the new results you help your dream clients produce.(5) Is it time-bound? Part of what makes a value proposition compelling is that it describes a benefit against time. Without making your value proposition time-bound your dream client doesn’t have to act with any urgency. By tying it to some measure of time you can better describe the cost of inaction.(6) Is it easy to remember? Your value proposition can’t be so complex and complicated that your contacts can’t remember it. it It needs to be a simple summary of the value you create. Remember, you can support it with as much documentation and as much proof as necessary. The value prop is a summary statement.(7) Is it defendable? The contacts within your dream client company are going to have to defend the value you create within their company. The more clearly and concisely you can define that value, and the more clearly it is tied to their strategic initiatives and outcomes, the easier it is to defend. Remember, you won’t be there when these conversations take place.Did your value proposition pass these tests?last_img read more

Police records say Sri Ramakrishna died of throat ulcer

first_imgKolkata: Sri Ramakrishna had died of “throat ulcer” according to the register that has been kept with the Cossipore police station.The devotees and admirers of Sri Ramakrishna had entered “throat ulcer” to be the cause of his death in register of Cossipore police station on August 16, 1886. They entered the name Gadadhar Chattopadhyay and not Sri Ramakrishna in the death register and his profession was described as priest. Sri Ramakrishna was staying at a garden house in Cossipore and had breathed his last on August 16, 1886 at the age of 50 years.

It may be mentioned that a museum on the history of Kolkata during the time of Sri Ramakrishna has come up at Belur Math following the initiative of Swami Prabhanandaji, vice-president of Ramakrishna Math and Mission. The Math authorities are setting up an archive on Sri Ramakrishna and requested the Kolkata Municipal Corporation ( KMC) to give them a copy of the death certificate lying with it. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateGhosh said as the death register is with the government it is not possible to hand it over to RKM and a digital replica will be hand over. It may be mentioned that as Swami Vivekananda was cremated at the Belur Math campus there is no death certificate of Swamiji. During the British period the law was to register the death of a person at the police station under whose jurisdiction the crematorium was situated and not with the KMC. Sri Ramakrishna was cremated at Cossipore crematorium which fell under Cossipore police station. Though it is generally believed that Sri Ramakrishna had died of cancer, there are many doctors who believe that as biopsy was not invented in those days to detect cancer it is difficult to say whether he was suffering from cancer or not. Many of them believe that he was suffering from ulcer. Senior civic officials said as discussion on cancer was not very common in 1886, the devotees of Sri Ramakrihna had entered the cause of his death as ulcer in the register. Sri Ramakrishna who was staying at Dakshineshwar had complained of acute pain in the throat and was brought to Kolkata. He stayed in a house at Shyampukur Street and then moved to a garden house in Cossipore. It was here his young disciples started staying with him as he needed constant attention. Scholars on Sri Ramakrishna maintained that this was the beginning of the Ramakrishna Sangha. Many renowned doctors in Kolkata including Dr Mahendralal Sarkar had examined Sri Ramakrishna. His well-built body deteriorated and he became frail as he could not eat anything. Despite ill health he blessed his house holder disciples who had assembled at the Cossipore garden house on January 1, 1886. The day is observed as Kalpataru Divas.last_img read more
