11 July 2011Coca-Cola South Africa has opened a new state-of-the-art plant to bottle Valpre Spring Water in Heidelberg, south-east of Johannesburg, introducing the environmentally friendly PlantBottle packaging to the African market for the first time.Selected for its close proximity to markets and distribution sites in the Guateng region, and a similar source water profile as Valpre’s, the new plant will help Coca-Cola meet the needs of the increasing demand for bottled water.“The opening of the new Valpre plant in Heidelberg, and the launch of PlantBottle, supports government’s mandate to create infrastructure, develop skills, increase the number of woman in the workforce and ensure sustainable development,” Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa said at the launch last week.“It is a notable example of the kind of development that we encourage all South African industries to adopt.”Recyclable PET plasticThe plant will make use of Coca-Cola’s innovative PlantBottle packaging, which has revolutionised the beverage industry as the first-ever recyclable PET plastic beverage bottle, made from up to 30% plant material and is 100% recyclable.PlantBottle packaging has a lighter footprint on the environment due to its reduced dependence on non-renewables such as petroleum.South Africa is only the 10th market to launch the bottle in the world, and the first in Africa.Greening the bottling industrySouth African National Bottled Water Association executive director Charlotte Metcalf said both the plant and new bottle significantly advance the bottling industry’s green strategy.“With the new Heidelberg plant, Valpre will reduce its carbon footprint, lower its water usage ratio, adopt energy efficient lighting and production technologies, and boost its solid waste recovery – all while providing its market with a sustainable product packaged in a bottle that takes a giant step towards using renewable resource,” Metcalf said.The new Valpre plant is undergoing Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification – an internationally recognised programme that is the accepted benchmark for design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.The design of facility maximises recycled materials and makes optimal use of water and solar energy. It has a “zero to landfill” target.Empowering womenIn addition to the environmental aspects of the plant and the new PlantBottle, the Heidelberg plant is run by a team of black women operators.In 2010, Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent announced the company’s “5 BY 20” campaign to empower five-million women by 2020. This is one of several programmes in South Africa to meet this challenge.“When we set out in 2009 to build this state-of-the art plant, we did so with the goal of ensuring that the plant reinforced all that The Coca-Cola Company and Valpre Spring Water stand for . unwavering quality and commitment to the sustainability of our environment and communities,” said Coca-Cola South Africa president Bill Egbe.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

mike melanson Before you go freaking out, Facebook’s new facial recognition feature isn’t there quite yet – your latest photobomb won’t result in the victims sending you angry Facebook messages as the service identifies your snarling mug in the background. For now, facial recognition simply means recognizing that a face is present and leaving it at that. The feature, just added last night, hopes to make the tagging process quicker and simpler, as part of a larger effort on Facebook’s part to improve the entire photo uploading, browsing and tagging process.According to Facebook, more than 100 million photos are uploaded daily – a statistic that looks to rival that of YouTube’s 24 hours of video uploaded every minute. In addition to the sheer volume, there is barely a person on the social network that hasn’t been part of the photo uploading process, with 99% of the more than 400 million users having uploaded at least one photo. What Facebook’s new product manager for photos Sam Odio is trying to point out here in his blog post is that uploading photos is massively popular and in need of some streamlining, likely to the benefit of Facebook’s servers. Odio was the founder of Divvyshot, the company behind the facial recognition technology that was acquired by Facebook two months ago. For now, facial recognition will identifiy that a face is present in an uploaded photo, asking the user “Whose face is this?” According to Facebook, the feature is in limited testing, so you may not see it yet, but this and more will be coming for all soon. “Stay tuned,” Odio writes, “for future posts about other work on browsing, uploading and tagging.”We’re hoping this does help to clearly tag photos, rather than ending up with names popping up between two people when you mouse over their rubbing elbows.While others, such as Endgadget’s Tim Stevens, lament that the facial recognition won’t go as far as saying who’s face the software is seeing, we have to say we’re glad Facebook hasn’t taken this leap. And surely, when they do, we’ll see a privacy setting for whether or not we want our face to be identified on any and every photo uploaded to its service, right?

A senior leader of the All India Forward Bloc (AIFB), who was a Minister in the Left Front government, has joined the Trinamool Congress. After joining the TMC, Paresh Adhikari said that he has joined the party “being influenced by Mamata Banerjee’s movement against the NRC”. Mr. Adhikari, a four times MLA from the Mekhliganj constituency in Cooch Behar district, was the Food Minister in the Left Front Cabinet. While he lost to the TMC’s Arghya Roy Pradhan in the 2016 Assembly elections, he has a strong vote base in Mekhliganj sub-division of Cooch Behar district.However, the AIFB’s State leadership claimed that Mr. Adhikary’s joining the TMC will have no impact on the party. Claiming Mr. Adhikary to be a “political opportunist,” AIFB State secretary Naren Chatterjee said: “His actions have exposed him as a political opportunist. He will get a fitting reply from the people of Bengal.” Local TMC leaders said that Ms. Banerjee’s plan is to “groom Mr. Adhikary for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls”.

Next It is great: West Indies captain Jason Holder on Chris Gayle’s retirement backflipChris Gayle confirmed on Wednesday that he would be delaying his retirement in order to play the home series vs India after the World Cup 2019. advertisement Associated Press ManchesterJune 26, 2019UPDATED: June 26, 2019 22:53 IST World Cup 2019: Chris Gayle he would be staying on to play ODIs and probably a Test against India in August (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSGayle said he would be sticking around to play ODI series and a Test against India in AugustHolder said Gayle had broken the news to the media before letting anyone in the dressing room knowWest Indies face India in a must-win World Cup 2019 clash on ThursdayIt was like West Indies skipper Jason Holder was discovering a surprise gift, hearing the news Chris Gayle planned to play on after the World Cup.Holder’s eyes lit up, and he smiled broadly when the subject turned from the must-win World Cup game against India to the prospect of 39-year-old Gayle sticking around to play a series of one-day internationals against India in August and possibly a Test match on home soil.Gayle is a larger-than-life character, and Holder laughed when he reflected Wednesday on the star batsman’s latest surprise.”He didn’t really say anything in the dressing room. But, yeah, it’s great and it’s great for cricket,” said Holder, who found out about the retirement backflip from the team’s media manager. “It’s good to have Chris around. He’s got a lot to offer still. Hopefully, his body can hold up. Hopefully, he can be on the field a bit longer for West Indies.”Asked for how much longer Gayle could continue representing the West Indies, Holder said he’d have to check in first with the veteran Jamaican.”I guess I have to go downstairs and have a serious conversation with him,” Holder said. “But, yeah, if he’s dedicated to playing for West Indies any longer, I feel it’s definitely going to benefit us having him around.”Gayle has scored 25 centuries in 295 ODI matches since his debut in 1999, and 15 centuries in 103 test matches. He averages 38 in the 50-over format, and 42 in the five-day format. When he goes big, he goes really big. His test high score is 333 and his ODI-high 215 against Zimbabwe in 2015 contained 16 sixes, both World Cup records which have been subsequently broken.advertisementHe retired from ODIs for a while, but returned for another shot at the World Cup and his impact on the home series against England in February and March gave a young Caribbean squad belief in its ability to beat the highly-ranked teams.West Indies started well, skittling Pakistan for 105 and then having defending champion Australia reeling, but lost that game and haven’t won since. The five-run loss to New Zealand here last Saturday came down to one shot – Carlos Brathwaite caught on the boundary for 101 trying to hit a six for victory.Gayle scored 87 against New Zealand, his highest score of the tournament to date. He’s promising more against India, and in the following two games which West Indies need to win to have any chance of reaching the playoffs.Also Read | I am definitely up there with greats of West Indies cricket: Chris GayleAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
