Don’t deny costumed teens trick-or-treat

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Re Oct. 29 article, “Should teenagers go trick-or-treating? Should you give them candy?”: I read the teen’s trick-or-treating article. As a senior in high school, I will say it should be acceptable for teens to trick-or-treat.Wearing a costume comes with trick-or-treating. Therefore, if not in costume, adults should be able to deny teens candy. Also, I will add that teens should be respectful as well when approaching someone’s house.With all of this taken into consideration, if teens are in costume and are being respectful, don’t deny us our right to feel like a kid again.Samantha BarnesDelansonMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady County warns of possible COVID-19 exposure at Schenectady restaurant, Rotterdam barEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesLocal movie theater operators react to green lightEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img read more

South Africa to tackle crime more holistically

first_img30 July 2014South Africa is working towards tackling crime from a more holistic angle, taking into account societal issues which influence the spread and intensity of crime, says Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko.Tabling his department’s budget vote in the National Council of Provinces in Cape Town on Tuesday, Nhleko said that crime could not be divorced from the extreme poverty that many communities face.For a more holistic approach to work, however, buy-in would be needed from communities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), organs of state, business, research and tertiary institutions.At the same time, Nhleko said, the police would continue to focus on reducing the number of serious crimes, cross-border and cyber crime, while working to stabilise public protests and enhance local police capability.“We commit the [South Africa Police Service] to community engagement, listening and being one with the people that we serve. We are also obliged to fight crime and restore the citizens’ faith and trust in our law enforcement agencies and the criminal justice system.”As part of professionalising the police service, Nhleko said the recruitment processes for entry-level constables would be changed to ensure that only the best-suited candidates were hired, with new recruits being taken through rigorous testing for suitability before they start formal training.The SAPS would also take its current members through rigorous sessions to ensure that they understood the police code of conduct.“Our approach on professionalising the police service will contribute to the zero-tolerance towards corruption and nepotism, and deliver the calibre of police official who will serve the people of this country with dignity and pride.”In the course of the past year, Nhleko said, tghe police made 1 392 856 crime prevention arrests, including 818 322 arrests for serious crime and 574 534 for other crimes.A further 1 218 arrests for serious organised crime, with a resultant 828 convictions, were reported by the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, popularly known as the Hawks.Convictions were secured that resulted in 1 110 life sentences imposed on 803 suspects for serious crimes such as murder, rape, business robbery, house robbery and armed robbery.Nhleko said the country continued to be faced with challenges and called on all sectors of society to be part of the fight against crime and corruption.“We would like to engage business around the issues of scrap metal and second-hand goods, its threat to the economic development of the country and their contribution in the fight against crime and corruption,” he said.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Feeling at home at Jamie’s Italian in South Africa

first_imgFamed British chef Jamie Oliver has made another addition to his Jamie’s Italian restaurant chain. The newest branch, in Johannesburg, opened to diners in December.Jamie’s Italian opens in Melrose Arch in Johannesburg on 15 December 2016. (Image: Mary Alexander)Priya PitamberThe words that come to mind when walking into Jamie’s Italian restaurant in Melrose Arch are homely yet vibrant and bustling. It’s no wonder, really, because it is lunch time at the newly opened establishment in Johannesburg.The spacious setting can seat up to 300 people, but it is easy to feel at home with the warm, earthy tones of the décor, the wooden tables, the rustic chandeliers in the private dining area, and the assortment of pictures hanging on the walls.Jack de Wet, head of design and development for the Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group in the UK, has drawn influence from South Africa’s heritage for the design. Originally from the Western Cape, De Wet has a post-graduate degree in architecture from the University of Cape Town.“South Africa has an abundance of material to work with,” he says. “The centre of it all, Joburg, is known as the city of gold with a nod to the industrialisation of the gold mining industry.“We have used these elements in the materials, patterns and detailing of the design, without it being too obvious. This can be seen in the intricate metalwork balustrade and screen details.”Leanne van Wyk, the marketing manager, says the Jamie’s Italian restaurants all over the world incorporate regional touches into their design. “By drawing inspiration from indigenous prints, national colours and key industries, Jamie’s Italian aims to become part of the culture and vibe of South Africa but also contribute to it,” she says.The opening, the menu and the ethosIts doors officially opened on 15 December 2016 after months of hype and anticipation, Van Wyk says.“The opening was an incredible moment for staff and guests alike, with the brand being warmly received by locals (as is our culture as a nation, to be welcoming) and this is something which continues to this day.”In keeping with Oliver’s well-known cooking style, only the freshest ingredients are bought and used in the restaurant, and fresh pasta is made daily on the premises.Pasta chef Emma Svusvu makes fresh pasta every day at Jamie’s Italian in Johannesburg. (Image: Mary Alexander)Sticking to the Jamie Oliver ethos, only the freshest local produce is used in the restaurant. (Images: Mary Alexander)There are three daily specials in addition to the standard menu, and this where head chef Shane Smit is able to incorporate a South African flare into the meals.So far, the most popular dish is the prawn linguine. Van Wyk describes it as one of the hero dishes across the brand.Local suppliers are also used and staff members went through an intensive training programme, says Van Wyk.The menu is rustic and family orientated, containing items such as breads, pastas, pizza and a variety of Italian desserts. The children’s menu is innovatively packaged into a view-finder, complete with 3D images. Even adults cannot resist picking it up and flipping through the options.Sizwe Ngwenya (left) and Arnold Khumalo whip up fresh pizzas at Jamie’s Italian. (Image: Mary Alexander)Children can read the menu through an innovative view-finder, which adults also find delightful. (Image: Mary Alexander)Why South Africa?South Africans, Van Wyk says, have shown a significant interest in local and international cuisine and have a bigger interest in Italian cuisine. This spurred Oliver to open up a branch of his chain in Johannesburg.“South Africa is blessed with authentic foods and tastes, a fantastic climate, amazing people and a sense of untouched beauty,” she says. “All this is attractive and appealing to the Jamie brand, which contributes to our message of love, passion and verve for food, family and life itself.”To embrace the vibe and culture of the country, Melrose Arch was chosen as the location. “As Joburg is fast-paced, vibrant and on trend, what better place than Melrose Arch to establish our first Jamie’s Italian restaurant in South Africa?”Embracing diversityGiven South Africa’s diversity, Jamie’s Italian has an ethos to be inclusive and accessible to all. Van Wyk says the restaurant tries to accommodate all dietary requirements.“[We] strive to make them feel at home through fresh, wholesome cooking and attentive service,” she says.And that is achieved with genuine warmth. After all, that is the South African way.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See Using Brand South Africa material.last_img read more
