Afrique du Sud: le secteur de la canne à sucre cherche de nouveaux débouchés

Le secteur sud-africain de la canne à sucre, déjà en petite forme, a été durement touché par les émeutes déclenchées par l'incarcération de l'ex-président Jacob Zuma en juillet dernier. L'industrie, sur laquelle s'est bâtie la région autour de Durban à l'est du pays, compte désormais sur un plan national pour se redresser. La région du Kwazulu-Natal a été l'une des plus touchées par la vague d'émeutes et de pillages de juillet. Et c'est cette même région qui concentre la plus grande partie des champs de canne à sucre du pays, qui produisent chaque année environ 20 millions de tonnes. Suite aux incendies, plus de 130 000 tonnes de canne à sucre brûlées ont été refusées par les usines de transformation, ce qui représente une perte de plus de 4 millions d'euros, selon le principal syndicat. L'arrêt des transports a également frappé le secteur, notamment les principaux groupes qui dominent le marché local comme Tongaat, mais aussi les quelque 20 000 petits producteurs. Des pertes qui n'aident pas une industrie qui était déjà en déclin depuis longtemps. L'Afrique du Sud a vu sa production de sucre diminuer de près de 25% ces 20 dernières années, et le nombre de ses cultivateurs décliner de 60% sur cette même période. Le pays reste pourtant parmi les 20 premiers producteurs mondiaux, ce qui fait travailler près de 70 000 personnes directement et 270 000 indirectement. De nouveaux relais de croissance Le gouvernement espère changer la donne d'ici 2030 grâce à un plan national, afin de diversifier la production finale en développant par exemple la branche des biocarburants, ou encore en favorisant une consommation de sucre locale, plutôt que des importations moins chères. Les syndicats du secteur sont également vent debout contre la taxe sur les boissons sucrées et réclament son abolition. Mise en place en 2018 elle a pour but de lutter contre des maladies comme l'obésité ou les diabètes en diminuant la consommation de boissons gazeuses et en favorisant des alternatives sans sucre. Enfin, des études sont conduites afin d'aider les agriculteurs à diversifier leurs plantations, en faisant notamment des rotations avec des cultures de coton. ► À écouter : Gabon: au kilomètre 68, le succès des champs de canne à sucre

Join us for a conversation about the current crisis of political violence and inequality in South Africa. The arrest in July of former president Jacob Zuma in connection with an investigation into widespread corruption sparked an eruption of unrest and violence, mainly in the province of his base, KwaZulu-Natal. Yet the upheaval reflects a broader crisis underpinned by the failures of the African National Congress (ANC) to deliver on the hopes of national liberation, and the neoliberalization and contradictions of the ANC in power. Soaring levels of unemployment and inequality – among the highest on the planet – have been exacerbated by the pandemic and government austerity policies. With the approach of municipal elections in November and an emerging new round of violence, our panelists from the online magazine Africa Is A Country will explore the roots of the crisis and the potential for building left organization and social forces capable of challenging the conditions facing the working class and the poor in South Africa today. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Speakers: Sean Jacobs is Associate Professor of International Affairs at The New School.

Dr. Richard Lessells is among the exceptional South African experts on the front lines of discovering and investigating Omicron in South Africa. Alarm bells went off within the scientific community, as it became clear after just a few days that “an extraordinary number of mutations” are clustered in the key regions in the genome for immune protection and transmissibility. It was a “gut feeling. ” Omicron is highly transmissible, spreading very efficiently in a population with high levels of immunity gained from previous infection and in some cases from vaccination. How long to know just how dangerous Omicron is? It's “too early to tell.” Lab work is underway to understand whether the virus affects T cells which are central to immune protection against severe disease. Why do we see such an unusual variant in South Africa? One theory, which Omicron may shed light on, is that the SARS-CoV-2 virus finds hosts who are very immune-compromised, persons living with HIV but not on anti-viral therapy. These individuals have difficulty clearing the virus, which permits it to replicate constantly over a very long period. Is this moment a pivot in the pandemic? That depends on whether Omicron significantly sets back vaccine protection, which would be a “step change.” Will this moment shock the world into more concerted global action, superseding the pattern of “vaccine apartheid”?  “I remain skeptical.” In the meantime, we have to fight against Omicron being fitted to a politicized narrative: by anti-vaccine groups, to tell the story that vaccines do not work. By others, to argue that there is nothing to worry about, that the virus is becoming less pathogenic, based on anecdotal evidence.  Dr. Richard Lessells is an infectious disease physician at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, in Durban, South Africa.

New COVID-19 OMICRON (B1.1.529) Variant Uncertainty: Currently mild cases are seen in fully vaccinated but are being spread among the vaccinated and vaccinated. Thanks for watching! Ask your doctor about increasing your vitamin D and about adding K2.  BOOSTERS are recommended for mRNA vaccinated after 6 months and for J & J vaccinated after 2 months.Common Symptoms: Headache with extreme fatigue (sleepiness), sore throat, and body aches in the vaccinated according to South African doctors. Young people (unvaccinated 20-30's year olds have been affected more severely so far up to hospitalization). Dr. Richard Lessells, ID specialist at the University of KwaZulu-Natal told BBC News that the variant is spreading rapidly in populations who he thinks have very high immunity. He cautions that it is too early to determine that the variant is mild.YouTube video:   https://youtu.be/hRB0RWzJmEY **Get these 3M N95 masks to better protect against the Delta variant or any other highly transmissible variant at my affiliated link: small or regular sizesClick here if you need a telehealth appointment with a certified medical doctor.******Vitamin D HOME TESTING KIT here (levels here) ******COVID-19 HOME TESTING KIT here ****Ask your doctor about any of the following vitamins or supplements that could potentially reduce severe COVID symptoms:Vitamin C with rose hips, Zinc, D3 & K2, Magnesium or this one, B complex, and NAC.****Hi, I'm Dr. Tonya Breaux-Shropshire, a clinical research scientist who shares everything about hypertension and trending health topics so you can get good blood pressure control.  You can read my work HERE.****Copyright Disclaimer under section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, education, and research.****Royalty-free music: Turn on My Swag 2 Intro by Mr. Willie Breaux, Jr.****Disclaimer: This podcast is for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace medical advice.

What bush crickets are telling researchers via their unique calls

T thyraeus Bush crickets – or katydids, as they are also known – are fascinating creatures. They belong in the same order of insects as grasshoppers and crickets and are among the many species that communicate acoustically. Male bush crickets are prolific callers – and each species has its own call to advertise their fitness to females. They call in different frequency bands and for different lengths of time, so that they can make themselves heard to the right potential mate. In South Africa, there are about 169 species of bush crickets. Of these, about 123 have an IUCN Red List status. The species Thoracistus thyraeus is considered critically endangered. But a study by our guest in today's episode of Pasha, Aileen van der Mescht, a postdoctoral researcher at the department of zoology and entomology at the University of the Free State, found that they might be more resilient than was thought. She recorded the calls of nocturnal bush crickets to determine how the different species were distributed across the landscape and what variables drive the distribution. The research identified 11 species in the study area. Those that used a higher frequency for their specific call tended to be recorded in more open habitats like grassland. Lower frequency callers occupied woodier areas – both plantations and indigenous forests. Thoracistus thyraeus was present in a forestry plantation where it wasn't expected to be. Thoracistus thyraeus is also known as the Inflated Seedpod Shieldback. Its blown-up thorax looks like a seedpod and amplifies its call. Bush crickets are often well camouflaged to avoid being eaten by predators. They feature in many food webs and play an important role in recycling nutrients. Aileen talks about some of their interesting features and their value in ecosystems.

Hello to you listening in Durban City, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa! Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey.Taking advantage of the first sunny day in a week of dense clouds and rain I walked a trail near the Admiralty Head Lighthouse bordering the old parade grounds at Fort Casey on my way to the beaches below the cliffs.Drifting overhead were soap bubbles, the size of basketballs. But how?An elderly man held two poles, one in each hand from which was suspended a long loop of string. Slowly he'd dip the loop into a bucket of soapy water at his feet, then raise his arms inviting the sea breeze to create shimmering soap bubbles. Children and dogs ran here and there trying to catch them floating up, up and away.But what caught my eye were the big humans, standing still, gazing and, I imagine, remembering once again being a child, young, free, chasing soap bubbles of a sunny afternoon.60 Seconds is your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
