first_imgFacebook173Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Gabi’s Olympic Cards and ComicsGabi Shephard (right) makes it a point to get to know her customers.The South Sound region will soon be bursting with valiant superheroes, criminal masterminds, and time traveling dinosaurs…at least in comic book form.On Saturday, May 3, from 10 a.m. until midnight, Gabi’s Olympic Cards and Comics (located at 4230 Pacific Avenue in Lacey, WA) will be celebrating Free Comic Book Day. On hand will be several local comic book creators, and of course, hundreds of free comics to choose from.Free Comic Book Day is an international event which has run annually since 2002, celebrating both the art of comics and the medium’s rapidly-growing fan base (thanks in part to the popularity of superhero movies like The Avengers, Man of Steel, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier).As the name implies, Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops. In 2013, more than two thousand people visited Gabi’s Olympic Cards and Comics for the event. “This is of my favorite events,” says Olympic Cards and Comics’ owner, Gabi Trautmann. “It’s like a holiday for comic fans.”To celebrate Free Comic Book Day, publishers create special comic issues specifically to give away—from major publishers like DC Comics (home of Superman and Batman) or Marvel Comics (publishers of Iron Man, the X-Men, the Avengers and others) to smaller publishers like Archie Comics. The comics showcase a diversity in style and content, with many kid-friendly options as well as more mature-themed issues as well.Among the offerings are a new Archie comic, a Simpsons tie-in issue from “Bongo Comics,” as well as issues of Hello Kitty, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, Spongebob Squarepants, Transformers vs. GI Joe, and dozens more. DC Comics launches its next major story event with a special “Future’s End” issue, and Marvel showcases the Guardians of the Galaxy (the characters featured in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy motion picture). In all, 57 different titles will be available to choose from; each attendee at Gabi’s Olympic Cards and Comics is welcome to choose three.So why give away comics? “We—comics fans, publishers, creators, retailers—simply love the art form, and as an industry, we decided to showcase for people who may not have been exposed to it,” says Eric Trautmann, Gabi’s husband and a comic writer who has penned dozens of stories for DC Comics, Image Comics, Dynamite Comics, and others.  “Comics are a vital, and uniquely American art form, and the medium has come a long way since the 1930s. It isn’t just superheroes or funny animals anymore; the content of comics has embraced virtually every genre, from mystery and crime to biography to historical nonfiction. Free Comic Book Day is a good excuse to show new readers what’s out there.”Olympic Cards and Comics houses more than a million comics, ten thousand graphic novels and a variety of different collectibles.Free Comic Book Day also marks an important milestone for Gabi’s Olympic Cards and Comics; shortly after the event, construction begins on the first of three planned expansions to the store—a second-story mezzanine adding 1,200 square feet, with a café and space for gaming, reading, and hanging out.Gabrielle Trautmann—”Gabi” to long-time fans of the store—began working at Olympic Cards and Comics in 1990, at the age of 15. In 1993, when the store threatened to close, Gabi purchased the business. The store began as a 1,100-square foot shop in South Sound Mall. In the winter of 1998, Gabi moved to a larger, 1,700-square foot location behind the mall. In January, of 2002, Olympic Cards and Comics moved a 3,600-square foot location at 4129 Pacific Ave, in Lacey, Washington. On March 1st, 2008, the shop opened in its current, 7,000-square foot location at 4230 Pacific Avenue. “We couldn’t have done it without the support and help of this community, the people who literally moved boxes, swung hammers, and pitched in any way they could,” says Gabi. “I couldn’t be more grateful.”For more information, contact Gabi’s Olympic Cards and Comics at (360) 459-7721, contact the store via Facebook or e-mail, or visit www.freecomicbookday.com.last_img read more

first_imgThe Selkirk Saints kick off the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League home season Friday at the Castlegar Complex with a date against the University of Victoria Vikes.Selkirk dropped its opening game of the season, a 5-3 decision to Okanagan College Coyotes.Caleb Georgetti of Nelson and formerly of the Leafs and Revelstoke Grizzlies of the KIJHL, was a one-man wrecking crew for Selkirk scoring the natural hat trick.However, Okanagan snapped a 3-3 tie with three minutes remaining in the game to edge the Saints.Second year goalie Spencer Wong of Calgary was outstanding for Selkirk between the pipes.Justin Sotkowy (Victoria), Sandro Moser (Banff) and Scott Traverse (Fernie) all registered assists for Selkirk.The Vikes swept a pair of games in Castlegar last season against the Saints, winning 3-2 and 4-1.The loss drops Selkirk into a three-way tie for fourth-place in the seven-team league.The BCIHL has seven teams entered — Eastern Washington, Simon Fraser University of Burnaby, Thompson Rivers University of Kamloops, Trinity Western of Langley, Selkirk, Okanagan and UVIC.Eastern leads the league with two wins with SFU and Okanagan tied for second.The top four teams from the league’s regular season then face-off in the BCIHL Championships, a round-robin format tournament held each year in March.Game time this weekend for both games at the Castlegar Complex is 7:30 [email protected]last_img read more

first_img25 June 2007The income of South Africa’s poorer citizens has generally increased over the past few years, boding well for the government’s plan to halve poverty by 2014, a report by the Presidency finds.The report, “Development Indicators Mid-Term Review”, issued last week by the Presidency’s policy coordination and advisory service (PCAS) unit, indicates that SA’s war against poverty has gathered pace, especially since 2000.Full report (pdf file)Since 2002, overall income growth in the country – including the expansion of social grants to almost 12-million recipients by April 2007 – has seen the income of the poorest 10% to 20% of the population rise.At the same time, the report finds, the number of South Africans surviving on less than R3 000 a year has also decreased, from 50% to 43% of the population.Rich, poor gap expandsPCAS head Joel Netshitenzhe notes, however, that the rate of income improvement among poor South Africans has not kept up with that of the rich. As a result, while income poverty is declining, inequality has grown.“While in real and absolute terms, the income of the poor is improving, this hasn’t been at the pace of the richest of the population,” Netshitenzhe said. “Inequality has worsened as a result.”According to the report, South Africa’s economy created a million new jobs between September 2004 and September 2006.“The drivers of this need to be researched further, but in the past we found that the performance of the economy was the reason,” Netshitenzhe said.Economic growthThe economy has grown for eight consecutive years – faster than South Africa’s population – positioning the country well to meet the targets set by the Accelerated and Shared Growth Initiative for SA, including annual economic growth of 6% by 2014.Capital investment in South Africa is also increasing, Netshitenzhe said. “Our target is 25% of gross domestic product (GDP), and we are now at 19% compared to 15% in 2000.”Growing optimism, especially among people in South Africa’s rural areas, could be explained in part by increased provision of government services.Living conditions“To the poor, a small change in living conditions means a lot,” Netshitenzhe said. “Compared to 1994, the mere fact that they now have water and electricity means there are improvements in terms of their conditions of life.”At least 71% of South African households have access to sanitation, as opposed to 50% in 1994, while 80% of households now have access to electricity – meaning that 4.2-million households have received electricity connections since 1994.The report points out that poverty should also be measured in terms of assets, and notes that, since 1994, about 2.3-million housing subsidies have been completed, with more nearing completion.Progress on land restitution has been slower, however, even though some 73 000 land claims are nearing completion.Education, healthAccording to the report, while South Africa’s matric pass rate has risen since 2000, along with an increasing number of students taking higher-grade mathematics and passing, the number of those students is still relatively low.The balance of boys and girls among the 12.3-million scholars attending schools across the country is also reaching parity, while adult literacy has also increased since 1994.The report also points to a decrease in HIV prevalence in the country following a rapid spread of the disease in the 1990s. There has, however, been an increase in tuberculosis since 2001.Crime remains at high levels in SA despite the fact that criminal activities are decreasing overall, Netshitenzhe said.“Trends in contact crime – interpersonal violence – have been slowly decreasing, in some instances marginally and others more substantially, but are still cause for concern.”South Africa’s prison population is also on the increase again, following a reduction through a remission programme in 2005.The report notes that South Africans’ membership of voluntary civil society organisations is also high compared to other developing countries, while voter participation remains high despite declining slightly over the past three general elections.The proportion of South Africans who feel that race relations are improving has also increased, from around 40% in 2000 to 60% in 2006.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

(Image: C Wolfaardt) The online database contains a wide variety of information from people who have worked on the island in various capacities. Many of the items have never been available to the public and documenting the information in the database will ensure that the memories are not lost. (Image: C de Weerdt)MEDIA CONTACTS • Engela Duvenage   Media: Faculty of Science   Stellenbosch University   +27 21 808 2684RELATED ARTICLES • New deal to protect Mapungubwe site • UWC history through students’ eyes • SA scientist lauded for polar work • World first for SA extreme swimmersWilma den HartighSouth African researchers have embarked on a project that will give future generations of compatriots online access to information about the country’s presence in Antarctica over the past six decades.Antarctica and the stories of the intrepid explorers you ventured there have always captured the imagination, yet few people know of South Africa’s connection with the continent.This prompted the establishment of the Antarctic Legacy Project. What makes the archive so distinctive is that once it is complete, it will contain more than 100 000 pages of historical records including maps, drawings, photographs, slides, journal entries and oral history interviews of people who have worked there over the years.South Africa, through the South African National Antarctic Programme (Sanap), is the only country in Africa that is involved in the Antarctic region. It manages research bases on Antarctica and Gough and Marion Island, both sub-Atlantic islands.Antarctica has no permanent human residents, but people live there throughout the year at research stations scattered across the continent.The Antarctic Legacy Project is funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DST) through the National Research Foundation (NRF).It is a collaborative venture between the Department of Historical Studies and Animal Demography Unit at the University of Cape Town and the DST-NRF Centre of Excellence for Invasion Biology based at Stellenbosch University.Searching for storiesAntarctic Legacy Project researcher Dora Scott says the database contains prized information about South Africa’s history in the Antarctic region. Many of the items have never been available to the public and documenting the information in the database will ensure that no memories are lost.The Department of Historical Studies and Animal Demography Unit at Cape Town university has already digitised more than 70 000 pages of relevant public records from the South African National Archives.The online database contains a wide variety of information from people who have worked on the island in various capacities – from scientists, support personnel and administration staff, to construction workers, engineers, crew on the ship and anyone else who has come into contact with the area.“We want information from a diverse group of people as this gives depth, character and variety to the database,” Scott says.Finding the stories has been a lengthy process, but very rewarding. Researchers obtained much of the information from the South African Antarctic Club, an organisation that connects and reconnects people with Antarctic interests.Universities that have research programmes in Antarctica have also assisted with information.Scott has come across many people with interesting anecdotes of their time in Antarctica and on Marion and Gough Island.“We have been fortunate enough to talk to people who were part of the very first team who went there in December 1959. They were all young and excited about the adventure awaiting them,” she says.The database even has a photograph of the first dog that lived on Marion Island in the 1960s, a Rhodesian ridgeback called Oubaas.She says that one of the reasons why they received so many images is because photography was a popular hobby on the island. “There wasn’t much else to do, so people on the island set up make-shift dark rooms to develop their photos,” she says.Scott also received a diary entry from a man who experienced a fire outbreak while living in Antarctica in the 1960s. Back then, fire was one of the biggest threats to people staying there.A fire could destroy all means of communication with the outside world and the base where people lived, leaving them vulnerable to exposure. Luckily, they woke up in time and got the fire under control.Fire is still a threat on Antarctica and the islands today, but unlike in the past, the base is above ground and no longer made of flammable materials such as wood.Scott says these days there are also procedures in place, such as fire extinguishers and safety briefings, to deal with such occurrences.Why Antarctica is important for researchAccording to Sanep, the inward curving magnetic lines at the poles makes them the perfect place for space particle research.Scott says that a significant amount of research into climate change is also done in Antarctica. The thin ozone layer at the poles also makes it possible to monitor and study space and sun activity, which is important for space physics and meteorology research.Candice Steel, programme director for knowledge fields development at the NRF, said in a statement that the intention of investment into the Antarctic Legacy Project is to stimulate and develop research into the fields of social science, law and humanities, within the context of the Sanep.In a first for South Africa, the project has already been used by a student, Lize-Marie van der Watt, for her PhD on the history of South Africa’s involvement in the Antarctic region.Van der Watt is the first person who has used the online archive database to produce an academic document.The database is already proving to be a useful tool for polar historians and scholars from various disciplines who want information on South Africa’s Antarctic research efforts.The Antarctic Legacy Project is also a valuable addition to the collection of historic material contained in similar databases in Australia, the UK and US.“I do not know of any other project which provides such a broad range of information,” said Dr Cornelia Luedecke, who chairs the Scientific Committee for Antarctic Research.The majority of the project will be completed by 2013, after which it is hoped that further funding will be made available to update the database on an ongoing basis.last_img read more

first_img9 July 2014The four-day Berg River Canoe Marathon, an event regarded by some – three-time marathon world champion Hank McGregor among them – as the toughest of its kind in the world, takes place in the Western Cape from 16 to 19 July. Among the contestants will be an impressive development team from the Computershare Change a Life Academy.Ten men from KwaZulu-Natal’s Valley of a Thousand Hills, under the tutelage of seven-time Dusi Canoe Marathon champion Martin Dreyer, will take on the 240-kilometre challenge, and even more could have handled it had logistics counted not against them, Dreyer reckoned.‘A strong team“We are taking down a strong team to the Berg this year,” the Dusi Duke said in a statement on Tuesday. “It would be more than that, but we are only taking one bus down, unfortunately.”Dreyer’s Change a Life Academy is a shining example of a successful development programme, producing numerous paddlers who have earned national colours and even winners of the prestigious Dusi Canoe Marathon.However, the huge difference between the winter conditions in the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal could be a problem for the Change a Life paddlers. River paddling opportunities in KwaZulu-Natal in winter are minimal, so the Berg provides a chance for them to get in some training and work on establishing a mid-year goal.‘A great platform’“The KwaZulu-Natal river season has been over for a while when the Berg comes around and I have always thought that it is a great chance for guys to set themselves a goal for the middle of the year,” Dreyer explained. “It provides a great platform for the guys when they come back and head into our summer paddling season.”Dreyer, who is familiar with the conditions in the Western Cape, said that adapting to the conditions is going to be the most difficult part of the race for his charges.“The weather is not the only issue for these guys, but the river is so different to what they know in KwaZulu-Natal. There are trees in the river down in the Cape, which make navigation a lot more critical, with the trees being more like a strainer in the river.“The weather will be different, with rain and cold, but hopefully the cold front that is hitting the Cape this weekend will be a thing of the past when we down there for the race because in the cold conditions I think it will take its toll on my guys.“We are going to have to be prepared for some cold conditions and I have made it clear to the guys that they must not go into the race expecting the weather to be the same as it was last year,” he added with caution.Somewhat of an unkownA race of the length of the Berg River Canoe Marathon is also somewhat of an unknown for a lot of the paddlers but, Dreyer said, his Change a Lifers have been putting in the correct preparation for the four-day race.“It is a Comrades-like event and the guys have had to spend a lot of time in the boat, and with Nagle [Dam] becoming too small now the guys have been putting in four-to-five hour sessions at Inanda Dam once a week,” he said.Having done so much for the Computershare Change a Life Academy in the past, team ambassadors and Dusi Canoe Marathon winners Sbonelo Zondi (EuroSteel/Computershare Change a Life) and Thulani Mbanjwa (Build It) will lead the 10-strong contingent down to the Western Cape.Setting an example“Sbonelo has been there or there abouts at the Berg in the past and he and Thulani will be important in helping the younger guys in the squad,” Dreyer explained.“Sbonelo is looking for a top-five and if he can motivate the younger guys to better results than that is great for the academy.”Assessing the challenge that lies ahead for his paddlers, Dreyer said: “In terms of paddling races, it really doesn’t get much harder than the Berg, and it really matures you as a paddler, so going with five junior guys is also great because I think when they come back and take on our season they won’t suffer.“The Berg grounds you as a paddler and that is something that I am hoping the guys will be ready for,” he concluded.The Berg River Canoe Marathon starts in Paarl on 16 July and ends at Velddrif on 19 July.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Yesterday Ohio lawmakers heard first hand how the state’s Current Agricultural Use Value (CAUV) formula is impacting farms in the state during testimony on proposed S.B. 36 before the Ohio Senate Ways and Means Committee.Ohio farmers saw a 307% increase in property taxes between 2008 and 2014. Those higher taxes are now being paid at a time when some farm crop prices have fallen as much as 50%. In the testimony, Farm Bureau State Trustee Mike Bensman, who  farms in Shelby County, told lawmakers, “For those of you who have worked in small business, ask yourselves if you would be able to manage a tax increase of 300 percent. It’s not an easy thing to budget for.”Katherine Harrison owns a small livestock farm in southeastern Franklin County and also is a Farm Bureau state trustee. She recently repurchased a portion of the family farm where she will be the fifth generation to work the land. “I anticipate (the farm) can bring in about $180 per acre per year. The taxes run approximately $120 per acre per year. That leaves a possible net of $60 per acre per year to pay down a loan for $300,000 to purchase the land.”They argued in favor of Senate Bill 36, which would remove incorrect assumptions in the CAUV calculation formula and make the formula less affected by non-farm factors. The bill would also remove a disincentive for farmers to adopt practices that protect water quality.Darke County attorney and Ohio Farmers Union member Ted Finnarn told senators that school funding levies will be nearly impossible to pass in rural Ohio in the coming years.“In some counties, folks are already organizing and they’re going to vote against all levies, even renewals,” Finnarn said. “They’re already making the yard signs.”Finnarn said CAUV has a long and valuable history for agriculture in Ohio but historically low interest rates continue to keep the formula “out of whack.”Finnarn, a decades-long member of the Ohio Dept. of Taxation’s Agricultural Advisory Committee told Senators that since CAUV was instituted in the 1970s, the Ohio General Assembly has tweaked the formula at least six times through legislation. He also said that formula has been tweaked through state Tax Dept. authority nearly two dozen times.“There’s been some scary information put out that school districts are going to lose money,” if S.B. 36 becomes law, Finnarn said.“We don’t think those reports are accurate,” Finnarn said, adding that as in most every other state budget, the General Assembly will alter the school foundation formula so that public education is not adversely affected by S.B. 36.last_img read more
