first_img18 July 2014 Cricket South Africa (CSA) commemorated Nelson Mandela Day by making a contribution to the education of young children at SOS Children’s Villages South Africa’s Mamelodi branch on Friday. The organisation turned an unused storage container into a mobile library to be used by the children of the Village and the surrounding Mamelodi East community outside Pretoria. CSA enlisted the help of publishing house Pearson South Africa to fill the library with reading and exercise books for the primary-school-aged children of the Village. “Mandela Day should remind us of the many blessings we have enjoyed over the past 20 years and also of the enormous gratitude we owe to Madiba, the father of our nation,” CSA chief executive Haroon Lorgat said in a statement. “It should also serve to remind us of the many challenges that we must still tackle and resolve to ensure a better future for all.” CSA ensured that the Home was given a proper introduction to the game, recruiting the full CSA National Academy of both men and women cricketers to conduct a coaching clinic with the SOS children and staff. They were joined by KFC Mini-Cricket players from the area for a fun and action-filled mini-cricket festival. The CSA staff, along with the National Academy and members of the media, then spent their 67 minutes painting and decorating the outside of the library. “SOS Children’s Village Mamelodi is proud to welcome Cricket South Africa as part of a large family,” SOS Children’s Villages spokesperson Lizo Tom said. “We are very pleased with the new mobile library CSA have donated to us. We want to develop a new strategy around literacy and the love of books, and our children in the community will benefit a lot from the new library.” A number of partners and sponsors supported CSA to do their bit on Nelson Mandela Day. Sedgars Sport, for the fourth year running, donated two sets of full cricket kit valued at R10 000, as well as 50 KFC Mini-Cricket T-shirts to the SOS Children’s Village. KFC provided 200 kiddies meals for the children of the Village and for the KFC Mini-Cricket players, while Momentum Health added their own donation of children’s reading books for the library.

Photo: “Grand prismatic spring” by Jim Peaco, National Park ServiceGeocache Name:Rainbow’s End: Grand Prismatic Spring (GC1JY47)Difficulty/Terrain Rating:2/1Why this is the Geocache of the Week:If you’re still searching for an EarthCache to find in order to earn your Nature Lover souvenir for the Seven Souvenirs of August, consider visiting a place that doesn’t even look like it belongs on Earth. EarthCaches bring geocachers to geologic formations and require them to answer questions about that formation in order to make the find. The Grand Prismatic Spring (or as the CO of this EarthCache points out: “GPS” for short) is the largest hot spring in the United States and third-largest in the world. However, what really draws the crowds are the amazing colors throughout the formation, caused by bacteria and mineral-rich water.What the geocache owner, Frumious Jane, has to say:“The Grand Prismatic Spring is my favorite place on the planet.  The longer I sit there on the boardwalk, the further away my troubles seem. We get so used to seeing streets, houses, power lines, and cars in our daily lives that these things become our Normal. Geocaching offers us caching options in pretty much every environment on the planet, and I’m a big sucker for the strange and glorious spots. I love being reminded that I live on a planet filled with rare and beautiful geologic features. The Grand Prismatic Spring offers a fascinating variant on the deadly beauty of volcanoes: the magma is underground, but we can see its effects on the steaming groundwater in the beautiful pools that dot Yellowstone National Park. Walking right up to something as resplendent as the Grand Prismatic Spring, knowing I’m standing atop a subterranean volcano all the while, gave me such a thrill that all I wanted to do was share it. We civilized folks just don’t get to experience surreal moments very often, and I wanted to let others know there was something worth pulling off the road for, something amazing to experience and think about. I’ve been a geocacher for over nine years, and I’ve made tons of fun and exciting memories with friends and strangers who hunt for Tupperware in the woods with me. Geocaching can bring out the best and most generous in us, and my life has been changed for the better by all those I’ve met and cached with over the years. I’ve raised my kids to enjoy the hunt and to follow the arrow toward adventure. I’ve had so much fun geocaching that I was inspired to write novels in a second genre: mystery. Under my pen name Morgan C. Talbot, I’ve written the world’s only geocaching mystery series, combining my love of stories with my favorite hobby. The Caching Out series was picked up for publication two years ago, and I’ve gotten the same exceptional, positive feedback for my books as I have for my EarthCaches. My writing career has continued to grow and gain its own souvenirs, and I have the inspiration of the geocaching community to thank for their early encouragement. No matter how far I roam in this world, geocaching will always be close to my heart, and loaded into my Garmin.”What geocachers are saying:“What an amazing view from the road with all the colored mist rising! Spent a good two hours here. Such vivid color!” – Mommabre“The Grand Prismatic Spring is truly one of the most amazing things in the natural world. When we planned our trip to Yellowstone this was one of the things I knew we definitely had to show the kids, and it was an absolutely perfect day to see it.” – bergmannfamily“Grand Prismatic has always been one of my favorite stops in Yellowstone — the colors are always fantastic. Thanks for giving us a reason to come out to visit again.” – NepoKamaPhotos:An overhead view of this amazing place.

Every time I read a new log telling me how awestruck the cachers were when they looked out over the spring for the first time, or how they’d never have pulled into the parking lot except for the EarthCache symbol on the map, I get all warm and fuzzy. Our lives are collections of experiences great and small. I’m both thrilled and humbled that so many people who share my hobby have also shared my enjoyment of this place I adore so much, taking home from their travels a little piece of joy and fun, and maybe a little snippet of knowledge, too.center_img What incredible natural formations have you seen while EarthCaching?

first_imgTags:#E-Books#web As our reading habits become increasingly digital, many book-lovers are wondering how this will impact libraries’ ability to lend materials, particularly since many of the popular e-readers and e-booksellers have rather restrictive loan policies. And some publishers too have expressed their own concerns about e-book sharing, with one going so far as stating that if libraries start lending e-books, it could serve to “undo the entire market for e-book sales.” These questions and concerns over e-book lending are bringing attention to libraries’ services, a good thing I’d argue, as the role of libraries expands from “repository of printed books” to include other technological services (most importantly, perhaps, community access to Internet). So here’s some good news today for libraries, right on the heels of good news for publishers from holiday sales: digital distributor OverDrive reports today that e-book checkouts at libraries were up 200% in 2010 from the year before. Audiobook loans were also up, by 52%. Proof, perhaps, that you can lend e-books and not “undo the entire market for e-book sales.”The statistics come from the over 13,000 libraries, schools and retailers that use OverDrive’s digital distribution services. And according to these figures, more than one million new users signed on to access e-books and audiobooks via “virtual library branches”. Over 718 million titles were viewed in the company’s Web-based catalog and over 15 million digital titles were checked out.The most popular fiction title: Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The most popular nonfiction title: Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love. These were the most popular titles for audiobook downloads as well.OverDrive says that it makes over 400,000 copyrighted e-books, audiobooks, music, and video titles available to libraries, which patrons are able to download to their phone, PC, or e-readers. OverDrive is one of several options that libraries can pursue in order to make digital content available to their patrons. In November, we reviewed the Bluefire Reader app that uses Adobe Digital Editions in order to facilitate library checkout of e-books.
