22 September 2010 Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (Sabic), one of the world’s top six petrochemical companies, has opened a new office in Cape Town, both to strengthen its business in South Africa and to improve its sales performance in the southern African region. Monday’s opening was attended by Sabic chairman Prince Saud bin Abdullah bin Thunayan Al-Saud, Sabic CEO Mohamed Al-Mady, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait ambassadors to South Africa, and senior South African government officials. The opening of the new office was “a clear reflection of the national, regional and global market’s growing importance as consumers of chemicals, polymers and fertilizers,” Prince Saud said. “This new facility will not only strengthen Sabic’s existing business relationships in South Africa, but will also improve the company’s sales performance in neighbouring countries.” “We are not new to this market,” Prince Saud added, “and have serviced customers here for over a decade. We are confident that, based on our reputation as well as on the first-class infrastructure and banking institutions in South Africa, we will see increasing use of our products by local businesses.” Al-Mady said the new facility demonstrated Sabic’s faith in the future growth prospects of South Africa and the entire sub-Saharan region. “Moreover, this new office will be the perfect complement to our storage and distribution centre which already exists in Durban. The Cape Town office launch is a logical step forward for Sabic, and ideally positions us to take the sales of chemicals, polymers and fertilizers to a whole new level in the region.” Western Cape MEC for Finance and Economic Development Alan Winde said the new facility would attract more investments into the province. “By putting systems in place that make it pleasurable to do business here, we will attract the investments we need to drive growth and job creation,” Winde said. “Sabic’s arrival has reinforced this strategy.” SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Focus on Social Networking FeaturesOn the consumer side, Copia wants to differentiate itself from its competition by giving its users a number of social networking tools. Community profiles on Copia, for example, are linked to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. In addition, the service will offer collaboration tools that are mostly geared towards students. Users can highlight and annotate books, for example, and share these annotations with other users. Copia will also implement a rating system for book reviews.OEM’s will be able to offer all of these features to their users as well. OEMs will also be able to integrate Copia’s e-book store into their own devices.Copia’s E-Readers: Ocean and TidalCopia plans to offer six different e-readers with prices ranging from $199 to $299. The Tidal will offer a six-inch ePaper display and the Ocean will come in a basic six-inch version and two advanced versions with a nine-inch screens. Both of these models will come in three different variations. The most basic models will not offer any wireless connectivity besides Wi-Fi and won’t offer a touchscreen. The intermediate models offer touchscreens, and the high-end versions will offer touchscreens and 3G connectivity. All models come with tilt sensors and 4GB of internal memory.These devices will go on sale on Copia’s site in April. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Tags:#E-Books#news#NYT#web Copia, a new e-book platform, plans to take on the big players in the market by launching its own e-book store and a set of touchscreen e-readers. Copia also wants to combine numerous social networking features with its e-book platform and plans to sell its services to original equipment manufacturers (OEM). Copia’s e-book store will offer over 250,000 books from over 1,500 publishers, as well as 1,400 newspapers and over 750,000 free books from Google Books.Copia’s private, limited-invitation beta will launch this month. The company plans to expand this beta in March.Copia bills itself as a hybrid solution, as the company plans to offer both consumer-facing e-book solutions as well as an open platform for OEMs. Can This Work?We still have a lot of questions about Copia. We don’t know at what price the company plans to sell books and what DRM-solution Copia plans to implement. At the same time, though, the company’s plan to sell both e-books and compatible e-readers looks a lot like Amazon’s strategy and there can be no doubt that Amazon has been quite successful with this model. Copia, however, doesn’t have any name recognition yet and the e-book market is currently dominated by big companies like Amazon, B&N and Sony. If Copia is successful in getting enough OEM partners, though, it could establish itself as another major player in the market. The company’s e-reader lineup also looks like a potential winner.

The presentations were made at the AJA’s annual Independence Ball and Scholarship Awards ceremony held on August 12 at the Sheraton Hotel, downtown Atlanta.Of the recipients, five are Jamaican students. They are Cadell Green and Joy-Ann Mason, who attend the University of Technology (UTech); University of the West Indies (UWI) students, Tiffany Mason and Dominique Spence; and Janiqua Thelwell, who is studying early-childhood education at The Mico University College.The other eight scholarship awardees are Ghiselle Brown, Georgia State University; Stone Crews, University of Georgia; Jazz Duncan and Keyanna Ennis, Emory University; Peter Gai Groves, Florida State University; Brianna Ramsey, Mercy University; Natahlia Robinson, Kennesaw University; and Sierra Hart, Washington University.In her address, Jamaica’s Ambassador to the United States, Her Excellency Audrey Marks, lauded the AJA for providing scholarships to deserving students in Jamaica and Atlanta over the past 22 years.“It is very commendable that after starting out with just two scholarships in the early days of the association, tonight, 13 students will be the beneficiaries of scholarships from your organisation,” she said.The Ambassador noted that the awards have assisted tremendously to advance the educational development of the recipients, some of whom will undoubtedly be among the next generation of leaders. Ambassador Marks also lauded the work of the AJA, which is celebrating 40 years of service this year.President of the AJA, Alan Stewart, in his remarks said the association is pleased to assist in furthering the education of these worthy students. “Our way of giving back to our country is to provide these scholarships to college-bound students, both here in Atlanta and in Jamaica,” he said.Mr. Stewart informed that the scholarship programme was established in 1995 to assist graduating high-school seniors of Jamaican heritage in Atlanta, as well as students in Jamaica, to continue their education. He said that to date, the organisation has provided more than US$100,000 to students in Jamaica and in the Metro Atlanta area as well as individual awards of US$25,000 to students facing financial hardship.Mr. Stewart said next year, the association plans to provide funding for full scholarships. Applications for the scholarships are posted on the AJA website at atlantajamaicanassociation.org.During the function, lifetime membership awards were presented to Joy Booth and Alvin Thomas for giving more than 25 years of service to the AJA, while founding membership awards went to Dr. Juan Reid, Neville Barrett, Dr. Noel Erskine and Glenda Erskine.
