0

Ground-breaking Disney+ Original Series Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire won the prestigious Annie Award for “Best Limited Series” (TV/Media).

The winning series episode “Enkai” was directed by Kenyan Ng’endo Mukii and produced by Blink Industries. 

Channel 1

It was also selected as a finalist for Prix Jeunesse International in the ‘7-10 Years Fiction’ category.

This win comes after the series also bagged the Kidscreen Award for “Best Animated Series (Tweens/Teens)” in San Diego, earlier this month.  

These accolades recognise the creativity and storytelling expertise of the multi-talented team at Triggerfish, the lead production studio behind the anthology series

The action-packed animated sci-fi series Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire presents futuristic visions from Africa inspired by the continent’s diverse histories and cultures, and has been enchanting audiences worldwide with its compelling narrative, vibrant imagery, and original characters since its release in July last year.

Guided by Disney, executive producers Peter Ramsey, Tendayi Nyeke and Anthony Silverston and helmed by a group of 14 directors from across the African continent including Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, and  Zimbabwe, the series was brought to life with authenticity and passion. 

The star-studded voice cast, included Florence Kasumba (Black Panther, Wonder Women), Pearl Thusi (Queen Sono), Nasty C (multi-award winning South African rapper) and Kehinde Bankole (The New Normal, Sista) delivering captivating performances, breathing life into the characters and enhancing the storytelling experience.

Triggerfish also won an Annie Award for “Best Music – TV/Media” at the ceremony for its short film Aau’s Song. A fantasy Star Wars-inspired journey of a child finding her destiny, created for the Star Wars: Visions Vol. 2 anthology series by South African directors Nadia Darries and Daniel Clarke. 

Additionally, Aau’s Song has been nominated for a Prix Jeunesse International award. 

The series as a whole has also taken home the Lumiere Award for the “Best Episodic – Animated.”

In addition to this long list of recent accolades, Triggerfish’s original Supa Team 4 on Netflix, inspired by Zambian creator  Malenga Mulendema, is up for “Best International Series” at the British Animation Awards in March.

“The affirming acknowledgement from these global awards marks a significant milestone not only for all at Triggerfish, but the African animation industry too, highlighting the growing recognition and appreciation for fresh storytelling and authentic representation of African narratives in animation,” says Triggerfish Executive Producer, Anthony Silverston.

Revolutionary Vertical Farm in Gloucestershire Ushers in New Era of High-Tech Agriculture

0

In Gloucestershire, one of the UK’s most technologically sophisticated indoor farms has commenced operations, revolutionising the way salad crops are cultivated.

Utilising a controlled environment, this vertical farm enables the growth of lettuce, basil, and other herbs three times quicker than traditional outdoor farming methods.

Glyn Stephens, the head grower, describes the transition to this high-tech method as a significant shift from conventional farming, highlighting the extensive use of technology and engineering within an indoor setting.

The farm, resembling more of a warehouse than a traditional farm, utilises rows of trays under vibrant, multi-coloured lights to cultivate various salad crops across fifteen levels, maximising the use of space vertically.

With a total growing area of 14,500 square metres, the environment is meticulously controlled to maintain a temperature of 27 degrees and about 75% humidity, creating ideal conditions for rapid plant growth. For instance, basil can progress from seed to harvest in just 18 days, a stark contrast to the slower growth rates experienced outdoors, particularly in regions like Spain or Morocco during the winter months.

This method of farming not only accelerates growth but also significantly reduces carbon emissions compared to importing crops from abroad.

Despite the high energy demands, particularly for LED lighting and climate control systems, the farm exclusively utilises renewable electricity sources to minimise its carbon footprint.

This approach to farming offers resilience against weather-related challenges and pests, thanks to its tightly controlled bio-security measures.

However, the vertical farming industry has faced financial challenges, with several firms across the globe struggling with high operational costs. Yet, the Jones Food Company, behind this Gloucestershire farm, remains optimistic.

By selling their salad bags at competitive prices and focusing on energy efficiency, they believe they have found a sustainable model for year-round food production.

James Lloyd-Jones, the company’s founder and CEO, asserts that they have successfully navigated the commercial challenges of the industry, positioning themselves as a viable solution for sustainable agriculture.

Malaysian MPs Visit Egypt To Reiterate Support For Palestinian Cause | New Sarawak Tribune

0

PUTRAJAYA: A five-member delegation comprising Malaysian parliamentarians, led by Deputy Foreign Minister Datuk Mohamad Alamin, is on a special visit to Egypt from Feb 21 to 24 to reiterate Malaysia’s staunch support for the Palestinian cause.

The Foreign Ministry, in a statement Thursday, said the delegation includes Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh (Ledang-PKR), Ahmad Tarmizi Sulaiman (Sik-PAS), Datuk Andi Muhammad Suryady Bandy (Kalabakan-UMNO) and Senator Datuk Dr Mohd Hattta Md Ramli (AMANAH).

The delegation will visit the Rafah-Gaza border checkpoints, through which the emergency and humanitarian relief supplies from Malaysia are channelled to Gaza, it said.

“This arrangement is undertaken in close collaboration with the Egyptian government and Ops Ihsan,” the statement read.

According to Wisma Putra, other programmes include a courtesy call on Egypt’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hamdi Loza, a meeting with the chief executive officer of the Egyptian Red Crescent (ERC), Dr Rami Al Nazer, and a visit to a hospital managed by the Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS).

“Discussions will also be held on the cooperation with Ops Ihsan in assisting Palestinians affected, including those who are seeking medical treatment in Egypt,” it said.

The ministry noted that there will be a symbolic ceremony to hand over donations from Malaysia to the ERC and PRCS amounting to US$250,000 (RM1.2 million) and US$500,000 (RM2.4 million), respectively.

Wisma Putra said a total of 100 tonnes of humanitarian assistance (worth RM5.6 million or US$1.2 million) was successfully flown to the El-Arish Airport in November and December last year.

The delivered items included medicine, medical equipment, food and winter supplies such as blankets, tents and clothing.

The humanitarian aid was made possible following contributions by the Malaysian public, agencies, and companies to Akaun Amanah Kemanusiaan Rakyat Palestine, said Wisma Putra. – BERNAMA

FACT CHECK | Ang Tampakan project ay hindi proyekto ng Malacañang

0
Featured Images template 20240222 103356 0000

Mali ang mga balita na kumalat sa Facebook na ang Tampakan Copper-Gold Project ay proyekto ng Malacañang.

Anim na Facebook pages ang nagbalita ng parehong artikulong  may pamagat na “Komunidad titiyaking ligtas ang Tampakan Copper-Gold Project ng Malacañang at SMI noong Pebrero 18. Bawat isa sa kanila ay may mga libo-libong tagasunod. (underscored by MindaNews)

Ito ang ibinalita ng Mindanao Voices, Batang GenSan, Radyo Bandera MyFm Midsayap, Arangkada-Balita, 89.7 Dear FM – Kabacan, at Nsj News Agency Services:

“Muling tiniyak ng tribong Blaan at ng mga lokal na kinauukulan sa apat na mga bayan na sakop ng Tampakan Copper-Gold Project ng Malacañang na matagal ng nakalatag ang kanilang environment-protection programs bago pa man magsimula ang proyekto sa susunod na taon.”

Ang mga munisipyong sakop ng Tampakan project ay ang Tampakan sa South Cotabato (kung saan ang bulto ng minerales ay matatagpuan), Columbio sa Sultan Kudarat, Kiblawan sa Davao del Sur at Malungon sa Sarangani.

Hindi may-ari o “shareholder” ang Malacañang bagkus ang SMI ang nagpapatakbo ng Tampakan project, ang pinakamalaking hindi pa nahuhukay na reserba ng copper o tanso at gold o ginto sa Timog-Silangang Asya.

Ang SMI ay tinatawag na contraktor o developer ng Tampakan project sa pamamagitan ng Financial or Technical Assistance Agreement (FTAA) No. 02-95-XI na ipinagkaloob ng gobyerno ng Pilipinas.

Inaprubahan ng Department of Environment and Natural Resources ang paglipat ng FTAA 02-95-XI sa SMI mula sa Western Mining Corp. – Philippines noong 18 Desyembre 2001.

Subalit kinuwestyon ng Lepanto Consolidated Mining ang desisyon ng DENR sa Opisina ng Pangulo (Office of the President), na sumang-ayon naman sa desisyon ng DENR.

Inakyat ng Lepanto Mining ang petisyon nito sa Court of Appeals (CA), pero binasura ito ng huli noong November 21, 2003. Umapela din ang Lepanto Mining sa Kataas-taasang Hukuman (Supreme Court) subalit pinanigan nito ang desisyon ng CA.

Batay sa Implementing Rules and Regulations ng Republic Act 7942 o ang Philippine Mining Act, ang FTAA ay kontrata kabilang ang pinansyal o technical assistance para sa mga dambuhalang proyekto ng minahan.

[“Financial or Technical Assistance Agreement (FTAA)” means a contract involving financial or technical assistance for large scale exploration, development and utilization of mineral resources.]

Ang ibig sabihin naman ng kontraktor ay kwalipikadong tao o grupo na partido sa isang kasunduang mineral o FTAA.

[“Contractor” means a qualified person acting alone or in consortium who is a party to a mineral agreement or FTAA.]

Iginiit ng SMI sa website nito na ito ay kontraktor ng gobyerno ng Pilipinas sa bisa ng FTAA, at hindi nito nabanggit na kasama ang Malacañang sa pagpapatakbo ng Tampakan project, taliwas sa ipinalabas na balita ng mga nasabing Facebook pages.

Ang mga yamang minerales sa bansa ay pag-aari ng estado o Philippine government, na pantay-pantay na binubuo ng ehekutibo, lehislatura, at hudikatura.

Ang ehekutibo ay pinamumunuan ng Pangulo o Presidente, na opisyal na nakatira sa Malacañang.

Ayon sa Artikulo XII, Seksyon 2 ng 1987 Constitution, ang estado ay may buong kapangyarihang kontrolin at bantayan ang explorasyon, pagdebelop at paggamit ng mga natural na yaman sa bansa.

[Article XII, Section 2 of the Constitution states: All lands of the public domain, waters, minerals, coal, petroleum, and other mineral oils, all forces of potential energy, fisheries, forests or timber, wildlife, flora and fauna, and other natural resources are owned by the State.
The exploration, development, and utilization of natural resources shall be under the full control and supervision of the State.]

Dallas Home Decor Brand The Citizenry Acquired by Havenly

0

The Citizenry, a Dallas-based direct-to-consumer home decor brand that partners with artisans around the world, has been acquired by Havenly, a Denver-based interior design service and home furnishings company.

The acquisition will allow the socially motivated home decor company to continue to scale the availability of its sustainable artisanal furniture and goods, further multiplying its impact, Citizenry said. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We set out to prove retail can be a force for good. Not only does the Havenly team appreciate our values, they have fallen in love with our unique design aesthetic, product line, and most importantly, our commitment to fair trade,” Rachel Bentley, co-founder of The Citizenry, said in a statement. “They’re the right partner to lead our next chapter of growth. We worked with almost 3,000 artisans last year, and with this step—that just feels like the beginning.”

Havenly said it anticipates retaining much of The Citizenry team, including Bentley, who will serve as president of The Citizenry, and Co-Founder Carly Nance, who will transition to serve as an executive brand advisor.

Focused on fair trade—and poised for growth

The Citizenry joins Havenly as part of its ongoing efforts to build a collection of home brands and technologies that appeal to the next generation of shoppers, the companies said.

The deal will allow Havenly to expand its fair-trade initiations with The Citizenry and across other areas of the business.

Since its founding in 2014, The Citizenry has expanded its offerings to cover the whole home, while supporting the work of thousands of artisans around the globe at pay rates that average twice the fair trade requirement.

From its beginnings, The Citizenry said it set out to build a design-forward company that celebrates the people behind its products and sets new standards in social responsibility for the industry. The Citizenry adopts a fair trade business model, and its following has grown the company into the largest U.S. home decor company to have 100% of its products sourced according to the rigorous standards set by the World Fair Trade Organization.

In 2021, The Citizen raised $20 million in Series B Funding from San Francisco-based NextWorld Evergreen, a growth equity firm with a focus on conscious consumer brands. And just last September, The Citizenry launched a new brand campaign, “Uncontained,” to highlight a deep lineup of new brands hitting shelves at nearly 100 Container Store locations nationwide.   

Rolling out its collections across Havenly’s platforms

The Citizenry said that with the acquisition, it will roll out its iconic collections to audiences across the Havenly platforms, expand its retail footprint, and scale its global network of artisans and heritage manufacturers to new levels.

“We’ve always said that our business marries old-world values with new-world market strategies,” Carly Nance, co-founder of The Citizenry, said in a statement. “We’ve grown to where we are today by being customer-centric and digitally-driven. This partnership provides even more strategic firepower in those arenas. The Havenly team is passionate about the same things we are—building potent, meaningful brands designed to stand the test of time.”

Havenly’s third acquisition in 36 months

This is Havenly’s third acquisition in 36 months, with past acquisitions including Interior Define and The Inside. Havenly said the deal cements it as the largest digital-first, DTC platform in the home decor market with a strong strategy for sustainable growth.

“As a personal customer of The Citizenry, I’m thrilled to bring the brand into the Havenly family,” Lee Mayer, co-founder and CEO of Havenly, said in a statement. “Rachel and Carly’s unrivaled commitment to sustainability, social impact, and support of artisans combined with premium quality and exquisite design is truly something revolutionary in the space, and a big reason why The Citizenry has long been a favorite among our customers. We’re excited to build on the work they’ve done to promote more sustainable values and help usher in the next era of great home brands for the modern consumers.”

Usher Shares Swizz Beatz’s Reaction to Alicia Keys Super Bowl Duet – Verve times

0

Swizz Beatz isn’t getting caught up in the drama.

Usher revealed that he and the rapper shared a nice moment over the fan reaction to his fiery “My Boo” duet with Swizz’s wife Alicia Keys during the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show. 

“Absolutely, we laughed about it,” Usher said during a Feb. 19 appearance on The Breakfast Club. “It’s crazy how people think. But it’s all love.”

The “OMG” singer went on to explain the concept behind his intimate performance with Alicia, who shares sons Egypt, 13, and Genesis, 9, with Swizz.  

“It was literally about having fun because of a song me and Alicia made many years ago,” Usher explained, “and we celebrate it because of the legacy of it.” 

The 45-year-old then added that he meant “no disrespect” with the choreography, which at one point featured Usher embracing Alicia in a close hug from behind. 

And Swizz’s own words about the 2024 Super Bowl show—which also included guest appearances from Jermaine Dupri, H.E.R., Will.i.am, Ludacris and Lil Jon—echo Usher’s perspective. In fact, after the “Burn” singer’s Feb. 11 performance, the “On to the Next One” producer set the record straight with fans who thought the sultry duet crossed a line.

The company’s chief executive, Murray Auchincloss, is also interested in the possibility of investing an additional $5 billion in this area in the future.

The British company British Petroleum (BP) intends to invest at least 1.5 billion in the development of the oil and gas sector of the Egyptian economy. This was stated by the company’s executive director Murray Auchincloss during a meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi on the sidelines of the International Energy Exhibition and Show EGYPES-2024 (Egypt Energy Show).

“The company is interested in continuing investments in oil and gas production in Egypt <…> and plans to invest $1.5 billion in the development of the Egyptian oil and gas industry and, in particular, in exploration of new fields, with the opportunity to invest additionally in the future $5 billion in this area,” Auchincloss was quoted as saying by the Egyptian news portal Al-Youm as-Sabia.

For his part, al-Sisi praised BP’s outstanding performance and its growing investment in the Egyptian economy, noting that “the company’s actions are in line with the aspirations of the Egyptian authorities to transform the country into a regional center for the production and trade of energy resources.” The Egyptian leader added that his government “attaches great importance to promoting the activities of foreign companies in Egypt and private sector enterprises in the oil and gas industry,” and stressed that his state is committed to strengthening existing cooperation with BP, especially in the field of green hydrogen production.

Earlier, Egypt’s Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Tariq al-Mulla, at the opening of the exhibition, expressed confidence that his country “has an attractive investment climate due to its internal security, political stability and appropriate infrastructure.” He called on the international community to “help the African continent make an energy transition on fair terms” and provide African countries with support, supplies of goods “at affordable prices” and financing of local projects on preferential terms.

The international energy exhibition and show EGYPES-2024 opened in Cairo on February 19 and will last until February 21. It is considered the largest in this area in Africa and the Mediterranean and will be held under the patronage of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. More than 400 companies from the energy sector are expected to take part, and dozens of events will be organized as part of the exhibition, including international seminars and conferences.
