first_img4 December 2013 Former South African president Nelson Mandela is to be honoured with an official Opus, the definitive publication chronicling the life and times of the anti-apartheid icon, it was announced in Johannesburg on Tuesday. Half a square metre in size and weighing in at 37 kilograms, The Nelson Mandela Opus will tell Mandela’s story in a unique and definitive way, featuring the finest writers along with stunning images displayed on an unprecedented scale. The Mandela Opus will pay tribute to Madiba in the year of his 95th birthday, with the publication set to coincide with South Africa’s 20 years of democracy in 2014. Only 10 000 copies will be available worldwide, while derivatives of the Opus will be available to make the ultimate work produced on Mandela’s life accessible to millions around the world. “We are excited about the Mandela Opus, which is another way of taking Tata’s legacy to people all over the world,” Mandela’s grandson, Ndaba Mandela, said at the announcement of the project at the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory in Johannesburg on Tuesday. “There can never be enough ways of telling his story.”‘Unique not only in size’ The Opus collection is a series of the largest works ever produced on selected iconic stories, organisations and personalities, including Ferrari, Manchester United, Michael Jackson, Sachin Tendulkar and the Springboks. Opus, Matchworld and Africa Rising, in collaboration with the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory and the House of Mandela, will publish the The Nelson Mandela Opus, with award-winning journalist Ryland Fisher, a former Cape Times editor and author of the book Race, tasked with editing the epic publication. There exists an almost inexhaustible amount of subjects on Mandela, with hundreds of books written about him. The challenge, as Fisher realised as soon as he began to dig deeper into the legend that is Madiba, is what to leave out. “This is the biggest tribute that you can ever think of to pay to such a great South African, and part of the challenge we had was to ensure that the unique thing about the book not only be its size, but the unique elements in the book,” says Fisher. Fisher has gone to great lengths to find the untold stories of people’s encounters with the great man. “For instance, the chapter on the day of Madiba’s release is unique because we spoke to various people involved in different parts of his release,” Fisher says. “We also spoke to someone who was in the house with Madiba before he came out, we spoke to the person who drove his car, we even spoke to another guy who walked around on the Grand Parade with a gun hidden under his coat, looking for potential people who might want to take Madiba out.”Accounts of family, friends, international leaders The Opus will be filled with writings by a historian on Mandela’s history, looking at the economic, political and social situation in the world at each of the key points in Mandela’s life. While the book will explore his life in great detail, it will also include the emotional accounts of friends, family, comrades, and international leaders and personalities. “We’ve got this fantastic story about his family and how part of the family felt they were neglected because all the publicity and attention was on only one part of the family,” says Fisher. “When we did the interviews with family members, I really thought we would get a sanitised version of history, and people would not be open and honest with us. What we’ve got was actually amazing – we got the family members speaking, ‘warts and all’, really.” Celebrated South African photojournalist Benny Gool, who chronicled the life of Madiba, is the official photographer for the Opus and had to wade through thousands of images for the book. “We ended up with close to 20 000 images … and we are moving to a point where we will end up with a minimum of 2 000 images, and from there we will draw on whatever will end up in the book,” says Gool, adding: “What is nice about this book is that you can display images like I’ve never seen in a book.” The foreword to The Nelson Mandela Opus will be written by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu. It will also feature special contributions by people such as Bill Gates, Naomi Campbell and Sir Richard Branson. It will include a personal account by South African President Jacob Zuma on his recollections of Madiba, while former US president Bill Clinton and Madiba’s fellow Nobel Peace laureate and former SA president FW de Klerk will also add their voices to the Opus. Poet Zolani Mkiva, who has been Mandela’s traditional praise singer for 13 years, has been tasked with ensuring historical accuracies in the book, particularly around traditions and Madiba’s heritage. “In a book like this that will be going global, what we want to do is mainstream the African heritage which he comes from,” says Mkiva. “You will realise that in terms of his early influences on leadership, his love for the community started from his grassroots, and we didn’t want to leave that out.” SAinfo reporter and Nelson Mandela Centre of Memorylast_img read more

first_imgIT + Project Management: A Love Affair Tags:#Analysis#enterprise#Trends 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Related Posts Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo…center_img Employee participation and information overload are two of the most common concerns regarding enterprise 2.0 adoption, but Carl Frappaolo, writing at Information Architected, highlights a significantly greater concern: accuracy of information. The problems of cultivating collaboration and creating, finding and filtering information are secondary to the problem of ensuring that the information that both employees and the public access is up-to-date and factually accurate. Fortunately, read/write technologies can be a boon to the correction of error in the enterprise.Frappaolo makes a surprisingly relevant reference to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, comparing BP’s PR spin to incorrect information in enterprise content management:I keep my outrage and disgust about this entire situation in check – the point I want to raise here is this, if left unchecked and un-managed, garbage such as this could potentially be retrieved as “fact.” Content authentication and source identification are critical to a comprehensive ECM strategy.Internet and intranet sites alike have the potential to provide access to a wealth of content, but can contain “garbage” among the “jewels”, garbage as rank and lethal as the oil “spill” itself. (OK I snuck that in.)Consumers of content need to be diligent in filtering garbage from “fact”, or be assured, as is the case with our client going forward, that systems are in place to control publication. I am not advocating censorship, but ECM systems need to provide some approach to quality control, tailored to the scope and needs of individual situations. Fact checking, authority and credentials of authors, and/or providing clear and blatant identification of authorship are all steps that can be taken to at least let the reader decide what is content and what is “garbage”.But, in the work place, deliberate deception isn’t the the most common source of incorrect or misleading information – human error is. And mistakes are inevitable. In a true “read/write enterprise” employees are not only empowered to contribute information, but to draw attention to and correct false information. Unlike a binder on a dusty shelf, a corporate wiki can be instantly updated with correct information if an error, or need for clarification, is found. Also, the corporate intranet, employee manual and other formal documentation probably aren’t the enterprise’s only repositories of knowledge – employees’ minds often hold far more organizational information than any physical or digital information system. And employees transmit that information verbally, sometimes in trainings but often in informal ways. And when information travels through imperfect, noisy channels – like word of mouth or gossip – error creeps in. If a group of employees receive false information and spread it around, it can take days, weeks or even years for someone to realize the mistake and try to let the right employees know.When discussions are made public, searchable, and – as Frappaolo calls for – attributed, it becomes much easier to transmit information accurately and trace down the source of incorrect information. A correction can be mentioned in a discussion thread or appended to a document immediately, hopefully before false information becomes ingrained in an employees consciousness.For example, if an employee asks a procedural question on the company’s microblog, they can receive answers from people outside their immediate area and department – and managers can see how the question was answered and give a prompt and authoritative correction to any mistaken answers. In this case, errors can become useful learning experiences instead of of malevolent contagions.It may take years for organizational culture to make the shift from the proverbial water cooler to participatory digital media (and unfortunately, this paradigm may not translate well to news media), but the sooner it happens the sooner information can be codified and corrected.Photo by o b s k u r a Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… klint finleylast_img read more

first_imgThe Week Ahead: Gauging Lender Sentiments On Tuesday, June 12, Fannie Mae will release its quarterly Mortgage Lender Sentiment Survey. The survey polls senior executives of Fannie Mae’s lending customers to assess their current activities and market expectations. The findings of this survey help other mortgage and housing professionals to better understand industry trends and assess their own business practices.The last survey, released on March 15, 2018, showed that mortgage lenders reported a net negative profit margin outlook for the sixth consecutive quarter, matching the all-time low reading from Q4 2016. Those who expected a lower profit margin continued to point to “competition from other lenders” as the primary reason, which set another new survey high for the fifth consecutive quarter, while “market trend changes” were cited as the next biggest reason for the first time in three quarters.Giving a glimpse of what can be expected from the latest survey, Fannie Mae’s Chief Economist, Doug Duncan said, “According to our latest Mortgage Lender Sentiment Survey, which we expect to release on Tuesday, lenders expect mortgage demand to soften in the near term.”Here’s what else is in store in The Week Ahead: June 10, 2018 514 Views Share Fannie Mae Lending mortgage Profit Margin rates sentiment 2018-06-10 Radhika Ojha CoreLogic Loan Performance Insights Report, TuesdayConsumer Price Index, Tuesday, 8:30 a.m. ESTFOMC Announcement, Wednesday, 2 p.m. ESTMBA Apps, Wednesday, 7 a.m. ESTConsumer Sentiment Index, Friday, 10 a.m. EST in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Originationlast_img read more
