4 May 2011For the first time in its 85-year history, the World Forestry Congress will come to Africa. The congress’s next gathering, held under the auspices of the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), will take place in Durban in 2015.The announcement was made just before the February launch of 2011 as the International Year of Forests, a declaration of the UN General Assembly.“What we need during the International Year of Forests is to emphasise the connection between people and forests,” said the FAO’s assistant director-general for forestry Eduardo Rojas, “and the benefits that can accrue when forests are managed by local people in sustainable and innovative ways.”During its 140th session, held in December 2010, the FAO decided that Durban’s International Convention Centre (ICC) would be the ideal venue for the upcoming 14th congress, a week-long event.The ICC is fast growing in status as an international convention venue and is also scheduled to host the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change’s 17th Conference of the Parties (COP 17) later in 2011.South Africa’s national Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (Daff) will host the world’s forestry experts in 2015. With 7 000 participants from 160 countries flocking to the previous event, held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 2009, an estimated 10 000 delegates will make their way to Durban for the next event.The local economy is expected to benefit from the congress to the tune of R100-million (US$13.7-million).South African experts presented scientific papers and participated actively in South America, an experience that stood them in good stead when bidding for hosting rights for 2015. The city of Durban was easily able to snatch the prestigious event from its closest rival, Hyderabad in India.“We are extremely excited that we have won the bid to host this large conference at which many important discussions will take place regarding global forestry issues,” said the ICC’s acting CEO, Jeremy Hurter.According to Daff, South Africa’s involvement in the global dialogue on sustainable forest development has led to its vital contribution to the International Arrangements on Forests, a device of the UN Forum on Forests.The upcoming World Forestry Congress will also boost the country’s contribution to the conservation of the Congo Basin forests, through the Congo Basin Forest Partnership which was set up in September 2002 at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg.Looking after our forestsThe World Forestry Congress was launched in Rome in 1926 and takes place every six years. The event addresses a range of current silvicultural issues such as forest policy, biodiversity, international dialogue and socio-economic implications.In its 2008 publication titled Practical Guidance for Sustaining Forests in Development Cooperation, the World Bank reported that over 1.6-billion people depend on forests to survive, and a further 100-million have found employment in forestry-related industries.The organisation also said that 80% of the world’s remaining terrestrial biodiversity is found in forests, and about 66% of the entire world’s species live in forest areas.In addition, the leafy regions play a vital role in the regulation of the earth’s climate because trees trap carbon dioxide. FAO data suggests that trees and their surrounding soil hold as much as 1-trillion tons of carbon – double the amount found in the atmosphere. It’s not hard to see why trees are so important to the continued survival of the planet.The UN plans to use 2011 as the opportunity to raise awareness among policy makers and the public of the need to conserve, protect and manage forests in a sustainable way.According to the FAO, about 130 000 square kilometres of forest – and a tragic 100 animal and plant species – are lost every year to deforestation, whether because of conversion of forests to arable land, unsustainable logging, human encroachment, or bad land management practice. The World Bank estimates that these activities are responsible for up to 20% of annual greenhouse gas emissions.Green South AfricaSouth Africa is home to one of the largest human-made forests on earth – the city of Johannesburg. A report on the city’s website states that although there are some 10-million trees growing in Johannesburg, it is classed as an urban forest rather than a rain forest because it doesn’t get enough annual rainfall to qualify as the latter – albeit human-made.Elsewhere in the country, about 1.3-million hectares of South Africa’s surface area are covered by lush green planted forests, used for commercial purposes. The forestry sector employs almost 170 000 people, and adds R16-billlion ($2.2-billion) to the national economy.South Africa also has rich indigenous forests, which have been inventoried by Daff and are now closely monitored and protected. Some 530 000 hectares of dense growth occur mainly along the coastal areas and the eastern and southern escarpments, as well as in isolated valleys and ravines.A number of these natural forest regions, such as the Tsitsikamma National Park – now encompassed in the Garden Route National Park – are important tourist attractions.First published by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.
Use subclips in Adobe Premiere Pro to pull selects and better organize your projects!It’s often best to break your footage up into smaller clips so you can organize, and then locate, specific shots in your project. This is especially true for interviews, where you may need to locate a specific quote quickly without any visual cues to find the shot. This is where subclips in Adobe Premiere Pro come in!While you could set In and Out points and then drop those parts on to the timeline this isn’t the most efficient way way to work. Instead, work through your footage, breaking each clip down into smaller subclips. Assign each subclip a unique name that makes it more easily identifiable in the project. For example, the footage in the below clip is called ‘Lakes_Animals’ which is ok, but there are several animals in this clip. When breaking this clip out into smaller subclips, it would be best if I gave each subclip a name that appropriately represents the animal (or insect) in that particular shot.So how do I do create subclips in Adobe Premiere Pro?First, double click the footage in Premiere to open it in the Source Monitor. Set an In point and an Out point for the piece you want to subclip out.Source Monitor with In & Out pointsOnce you have your In and Out points set out there are several ways to create your sub-clip.Click on the ‘Clip’ menu and choose the second option ‘Make Subclip…’.Right click the Source Monitor and choose ‘Make Subclip…’ from about a third of the way down.Hold the Control key on a PC or the Command key on a Mac and drag the clip to the Project Panel. You will get this option:Subclip renaming optionMake sure you use this to give the subclip a name that actually means something to you! For example, if it were part of a long interview, use a title to express what the subject was saying. This makes it more easily searchable for when you want to find it and add it to the timeline later. Searchability is key!Re-named Sub-clip & Original Clip with In & Out Points RemovedHave any Adobe Premiere Pro workflow tips to share?We want to hear from you in the comments!
Last week Microsoft released The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, and there is a new feature that can be very useful for DIY and low-budget productions.Cover image via Windows.com.Curious about the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update? Let’s get started with this video.Mixed Reality ViewerPerhaps one of the better features in this update is the Mixed Reality Viewer, which is Microsoft’s new augmented reality app. The MRV allows you to implement 3D creations into the real world via your onboard camera (or webcam).Image via Windows YouTube.While the application of the software may initially be for fun and games, akin to SnapChat filters, you can’t deny its potential for pre-vis and VFX planning — especially for low-budget productions that don’t have the pre-production tech for such things. While the MRV users will generally use 3D models from either the Remix3D.com community or from Microsoft’s Paint 3D application, you can import an abundance of 3D file formats, allowing for quick pre-vis use of a possible computer-generated image coming later to your scene.For example, here, I’ve quickly imported a 3D Model from VideoCopilot’s Element 3D into the MRV, it’s just as fast as opening a photograph in the Windows Photo Viewer, and it works the same way as any 3D software viewer — save the customizability.With a Surface Pro, you could very easily bring your Sci-Fi props to the location for blocking and composition work. In the update, we also see the great addition of Microsoft Paint 3D, the latest iteration of Microsoft Paint. In Microsoft Paint 3D, you can import your 3D objects from the MRV and customize or edit the object — not in the same manner as Cinema 4D or Element 3D, but you can modify the color and add shapes, models, and text. You can even adjust the lighting effects.While this is a basic app, there certainly is a lot of creative potential for new filmmakers to use this in the field to bring their visions to life. If you haven’t already, you can download the update here.

Alvarez and his promoter, Oscar De La Hoya, were widely criticized for avoiding Golovkin for the last two years, but now Alvarez has grown into a full-fledged middleweight and both fighters seem to be in their prime.There shouldn’t be many surprises.

The two are scheduled to fight in a middleweight title fight Saturday in Las Vegas. (AP Photo/John Locher)LAS VEGAS — Canelo Alvarez was just Saul Alvarez back then, a red-haired 15-year-old who wanted nothing more than to make some money boxing.He got his chance on a summer night in 2005 in a suburb of Guadalajara, Mexico, where he grew up. His opponent was another teenager named Abraham Gonzalez, but he could have been anyone.ADVERTISEMENT “My mentality is 100 percent to win,” Alvarez said. “Every night before I go to bed I visualize a knockout.”Alvarez has been on the big stage before. He and Mayweather delivered more than 2 million pay-per-view buys in their fight, and he has consistently drawn big crowds and big television numbers over the last five years.He’s done beer commercials with Sylvester Stallone, collected multi-million dollar purses, and established himself as the latest in a long succession of aggressive Mexican fighters.If he can beat Golovkin — and he’s a slight underdog — he’ll have a handful of championship belts and a signature win that will resonate throughout the sport. It’s something he thought would happen if he beat Mayweather, but at 23, he wasn’t ready for the defensive master.“Most definitely I was too young and it showed,” Alvarez said through an interpreter. “I don’t take it today as a defeat but as an experience. I learned a lot from that fight.”In Golovkin, Alvarez will be fighting a boxer who hasn’t lost since the gold medal match in the 2004 Olympics. He’ll also be facing a slugger who has 33 knockouts in 37 fights and is defending his middleweight titles for the 19th time.But Golovkin looked somewhat vulnerable in his last fight, where he went 12 rounds with Danny Jacobs. He won, but the fight that may have convinced De La Hoya to risk his most marketable fighter against Triple G.No one on either side expects it to be easy.“He has a very aggressive style. He comes to search and destroy and he comes in search of a knockout,” Alvarez said. “You know me, I don’t back down. I’m a counter puncher and I like to fight. It has all the ingredients to be one of the best fights ever.”Whether the fight will deliver the classic everyone expects remains to be seen. But it has brought talk of great middleweight fights from the 1980s, including Tommy Hearns versus Marvelous Marvin Hagler and Hagler against Sugar Ray Leonard.Leonard posted a video on Twitter this week giving his thoughts on the outcome.

I’m nine games into it and I’m trying to develop a team that over a long period of time can achieve success, go far and do special things. It’s time to stand up. These are the games that, when you get them right, they really hit home with people.“That’s the opportunity in front of this group, to go and win here at the Waca for the first time in a long time. All it takes is making those snippets of performances from the first two games last for five days, having that mentality and being in that contest for such a long period. Get that right then there is no reason we can’t be sat here at 2-1 next week.” England players have let down Joe Root and must rebuild trust, says Bairstow Read more Share on Messenger Since you’re here… Share on Facebook Support The Guardian Topics Alastair Cook’s milestone Test doubles up as the ‘biggest game of our lives’ Share on Twitter England cricket team The Ashes With the third Test starting on Thursday, Root said we was “fed-up” with talking about discipline and maintained some perceptions about his squad differ greatly from the hardworking reality. More pressing on the young captain’s mind is getting back into the series from 2-0 down at a ground where one win from 13 previous attempts shows the scale of the task.“Trevor Bayliss has expressed his feelings and it’s about moving on now,” said Root. “That’s why as a group we have to make sure we perform well this week, win and get people talking about the cricket. Go to Melbourne 2-1 down then the whole dynamic of the series [changes]. We still believe we can win the series but we now need to prove that to everyone else.”On the prospect of playing at the Waca, hosting its final Ashes Test, Root added: “It’s exciting to be part of history. But ultimately we have to be smart in how we prepare, with clear ways of how we go about things. That will give us the best chance of winning, not looking at history.”Root conceded that Jimmy Anderson, the player on the receiving end of Duckett’s drink last Thursday and his vice-captain on tour, may well need to set a better example but, like the team as a whole, the bowler’s focus now should be his on-field performance.Alastair Cook spoke strongly on the subject, admitting it had taken far too long for the seriousness of the Ben Stokes situation to register with sections of the squad. This, plus the scoreline, is why two minor late-night incidents (the first involving Jonny Bairstow) have hurt the squad’s image and, in Cook’s view, undone their progress in that area since 2013.“The world changed for English cricket with the Ben Stokes incident,” said Cook. “We spent a lot of time trying to reconnect with the public, these things tarnish all of us. It’s taken us a couple of months to realise the scrutiny we are now under and we’ve got to adjust.”Cook, preparing for his 150th Test, knows all about the stresses of captaining England. Root, his successor and only nine Tests into his reign, admitted to some surprise at still having his hair given the tour so far. His decision to bat at No4 remains firm and though Bairstow and Moeen Ali may trade places in the batting order, the XI looks set to be unchanged. Australia cricket team news Alastair Cook Joe Root Joe Root has urged his players to forget about England’s wretched past at the Waca and jolt their flatlining Ashes defence back into life in the third Test after Trevor Bayliss issued the squad with final warnings over their off-field behaviour.Bayliss, the head coach, has held meetings with senior members of the touring party and the group as a whole, delivering the message directly that any drink-related incidents such as the one that resulted in Ben Duckett being suspended from Lions duty and fined will be met with the firmest action.
