The innovative service uses global positioning system (GPS) technology, installed in rental cars, to track the movements of its users, giving them information relevant to the particular area they are driving through.Once a visitor opts to include Tourism Radio in their hired car – for as little as R10 to R15 a day – they simply tune in to Tourism Radio on 90.2FM to get cultural, historical and anecdotal information, as well as updates on nearby attractions and shows.“What this means in practical terms is that if you’re in Cape Town, you learn about the development of the Mother City, and when you drive to Stellenbosch, the focus of the broadcast travels with you … it’s that easy,” says Tourism Radio founder and operations director Mark Allewell.Pre-recorded shows focusing on local music, typical South African slang and the like are interrupted with up to date travel and weather reports or – if the visitor drives through an area of importance – with information about that area.“It’s like having a local person there in your car,” says Allewell.Tourism Radio spent the best part of two years developing its system, as well as eight months compiling all the relevant information.According to Allewell, the pilot service in Cape Town will be followed by a nationwide launch by the end of 2006 – and could be exported, with partner firms Budget and National Alamo Car Rental spreading the word to their international car rental network.“With partners like Vodacom, Budget and National Alamo helping us expand through South Africa and the world, we are very excited about our next stage of growth.”Useful linksTourism Radio: www.tourismradio.infoSouth African Tourism: www.southafrica.net

Following his graduation, heLuis Moraesmoved to California where he received two Master of Science degrees, one in Animal Biology and one in Statistics, and a PhD in Animal Biology, all from the University of California-Davis. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the UC Davis in the Department of Animal Science until he joined the faculty at Ohio State as an Assistant Professor.His research focuses on the application of statistics, mathematics, and economics to the animal sciences. He is particularly interested in the use of economic optimization models for dairy management. While at UC Davis, he developed linear and goal programming models that simultaneously minimized diet costs and methane emissions.He has also worked on the application of statistical methods for describing nutrient utilization in cattle. For instance, multivariate mixed models, nonparametric growth curves, and Bayesian methods are examples of techniques that he has used to better understand energy and protein metabolism in growing and lactating cattle. At OSU, his research plans are to develop mathematical models that incorporate nutrient management information into diet optimization. Further, he will continue to develop and apply statistical modeling techniques for the extraction of meaningful information from animal science data and for the improved understanding of biological processes.
The Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) has declined to transport four elephants from eastern Assam’s Tinsukia to Ahmedabad for the July 4 Jagannath Rath Yatra until the Gauhati High Court resolves the matter and the State Forest Department clarifies an order of the Supreme Court regarding transfer of elephants.Assam-based animal rights activists Urmi Mala Das and Nandini Baruah had on Friday filed a public interest litigation at the high court challenging the Assam government’s decision to transport four juvenile elephants, two of them females, in railway wagons to Ahmedabad.

Mrs Indira Gandhi at a party conference in LucknowWith advancing age and an erratic memory she (Mrs Gandhi) is suffering from great mental strain. This is obvious from the fact that at a serious party meeting in Lucknow she talked less about Punjab and Assam and more about Maneka…. It is not in the interest of the country to have an unwell prime minister.Mrs Maneka Gandhi in a statement to the press in New DelhiGuru Govind Singh created us and if Mahatma Gandhi is going to abuse him why should we consider him as our rashtra pita (father of the nation)?

Harminder Singh Sandhu, general secretary of the Akali Dal youth wing in SundayThe basic problem with Indian businessmen is that they cannot move an inch without protection. They often talk of competition; in real life they cry like babies seeking mother’s protection. Competition and protection cannot go hand in hand.
