20 May 2013 With South Africa confirmed as a key partner, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has announced October 2015 as the launch date for construction of the first phase of what could eventually be the largest hydroelectric plant in the world. The Grand Inga project on the Congo River is expected, once all the phases are complete, to generate a massive 40 000 MW of electricity, bringing renewable power to half of the African continent. The initialling of a historic energy cooperation treaty between the DRC and South Africa in Lubumbashi in March was a key milestone in the process of bringing the project, first conceived in the early 1970s, closer to fruition. At a meeting in Paris on the weekend, organised by the DRC government and with a high-level South African delegation in attendance, a range of stakeholders consulted on the implementation of the first phase of the project, Inga 3, which is expected to cost in the region of US$12-billion and produce almost 4 800 MW of electricity. Two existing dams, Inga 1 and 2, have been in operation since 1972 and 1982 respectively, together generating nearly 1 800 MW. In terms of the March treaty, South Africa “expects to purchase a significant share of the electricity production of the new dam, thus confirming itself as a key partner,” the DRC government said in a statement on Saturday. “As such, the Republic of South Africa will take 2 500 MW of the 4 800 MW of future power production of Inga 3, thereby becoming the principal purchaser.” Garrith Bezuidenhoudt, chief of staff in South Africa’s Department of Energy, said in the statement that the South African government had “affirmed our commitment to the project by already provisioning for this purchase in our budgetary plan”. Inga 3 is expected to fill the power gap in the DRC, with its fast-growing population and expanding industries, and to help meet burgeoning demand in South Africa. Subsequent phases, adding up to an eventual total capacity of 40 000 MW, will allow countries in southern Africa, north-east Africa and parts of west Africa to benefit from production at the site. “Grand Inga will thus provide more than half of the continent with renewable energy at a low price,” Bruno Kalala, the DRC’s minister of water resources and electricity, told Saturday’s meeting. However, Kalala said, issues around transport and connectivity had yet to be addressed. “Inga is a factor for integration, at both a regional and international level.” According to the DRC government, three consortia are competing to develop the project: Sinohydro and Three Gorges Corporation from China, the operator of China’s Three Gorges dam, currently the world’s largest; Actividades de Construccion y Servicios, Eurofinsa and AEE from Spain; and the Daewoo-Posco-SNC Lavalin consortium from Korea and Canada. The Africa Development Bank, which has been involved in the project since 2009, is financing the base studies and consultants, and has been joined by the World Bank, the French Development Agency, the European Investment Bank and the Development Bank of Southern Africa. “The question of financing is a major issue in the selection process,” said Hela Cheikhrouhou, director for energy environment and climate change at the African Development Bank. “It is the public-private partnership financing solutions which will be vital for the success of the project.” SAinfo reporter
It leaves Southampton on 36 points, three above Swansea and with a superior goal difference (nine goals better) ahead of Sunday’s final game, at home to champions Manchester City.Swansea are at home to already relegated Stoke on the final day.“Those celebrations shouldn’t be misinterpreted,” said Hughes, who was so caught up in the joyful post-match scenes with his players and staff that he failed to indulge in the customary post-match handshake with his Swansea counterpart Carlos Carvalhal.“They were emotion as a consequence of winning this key game.“We had to win and we understood that and it wasn’t that we were celebrating staying up because there is still an issue to be resolved in that regard.“There is a little bit of a cushion but we are playing Man City and we have to be careful. If there is one team in this league who have the capability of scoring a lot of goals, it’s Man City.”Southampton have now taken seven points from their past three games and Hughes felt the pre-match row over Southampton’s cancelled Swansea hotel booking had worked in their favour.The players had ended up staying 35 miles (56 kilometres) away after their booking in Swansea city centre was cancelled because of a “virus” at the Marriott Hotel.Hughes had expressed his anger over the cancellation in a TV interview before kick-off after the Saints squad had completed the final 100 metres of the journey on foot to ensure they were not held up entering the stadium.“I’m not for one minute suggesting Swansea had anything to do with that,” Hughes said of the hotel row.“Maybe it was over-zealous Swansea fans in positions to affect our hotel booking. But those things you can use to your own benefit as a motivating factor.”Swansea’s best chance of survival now seems to rest on overcoming Stoke and hoping Huddersfield lose their final two games, at Chelsea on Wednesday and at home to Arsenal on Sunday.Were that to happen, Swansea would finish above Huddersfield on goal difference.“It’s horrible not to depend on ourselves,” said Swansea boss Carvalhal. “Let’s see what will happen (at Chelsea).“If we still believe then we can stay (in the Premier League), we must do our part on the weekend and win the game. After that, we can wait that a kind of miracle can happen.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Southampton manager Mark Hughes celebrates his side’s Premier League victory against Swansea © AFP / Geoff CADDICKLONDON, United Kingdom, May 9 – Mark Hughes refuses to accept Southampton are safe yet despite almost guaranteeing their Premier League future by winning at relegation rivals Swansea.Manolo Gabbiadini’s 72nd-minute winner — four minutes after the Italian striker had come on as a substitute — pushed Swansea towards the Premier League trapdoor and confirmed West Brom’s relegation.
in today’s society, what is the most missing? I think a lot of people should be very clear. This is not only the lack of large companies, small tea shop also lack. So, for a milk tea shop, how to recruit the most suitable for their talents? The author believes that, according to the following aspects to select talents.
1. implement classified recruitment strategy
there is no difference between no strategy, a tea shop looking for potential reserve management personnel, and for general business personnel or operating personnel, both in the recruitment channels or in the selection method should have difference. For example, the recruitment of general service personnel, should not make too many demands on education, just pay attention to his attitude to service work, understanding and his practical experience. If the recruitment of management talent, can focus on recruiting outstanding college students. This is not only conducive to attract and retain outstanding talent, but also conducive to the formation of a reasonable structure of the quality of the staff.
2. recruitment work should focus on staff training and development
tea shop recruitment service staff, tea production staff and managers, is to focus on the future development of a company. Therefore it is necessary to think about the people in the recruitment into the enterprise, 3 years, 5 years after what he can do, also need to pay attention on the candidates considered on their own occupation career development planning, training to candidates and actively promote enterprises for talents.
3. uses targeted personnel selection procedures and selection methods
recruitment management reserve personnel not only to examine the applicant’s business knowledge and business skills, but also focus on the management potential and leadership potential. Therefore, compared with the general staff recruitment, recruitment management, reserve personnel selection procedures are usually more complicated, the selection method is also more abundant, in addition to the common table by Qing Shen (or resume) outside the primaries, written examination, interview, often by means of psychological testing and Evaluation Center (Assessment Center) and other professional methods.
4. tea shop senior management and employment department heads should actively participate in the recruitment work
relative to the human resources department staff, the senior management of the enterprise and the Department of the company’s overall operations and business development has clearer and more direct understanding of them, to some extent, more clearly in the future management of the enterprise needs what kind of talent. Moreover, when the senior management in the publicity of enterprises, but also in a more favorable position than the human resources professionals.
5. to regularly evaluate the recruitment of milk tea shop

Gonzalez also singled and scored the Dodgers’ first run in the second inning, finishing 3 for 4. Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis also hit home runs, and Dodgers starter Zack Greinke pitched seven efficient innings, retiring the final 13 batters he faced.“For him to go through those first three innings at 61 pitches and be able to throw four more clean says a lot about how he was able to settle in and get the ball to the back end of our guys,” Ellis said of Greinke.The Cardinals loaded the bases in the top of the first inning with none out, but Greinke came back to strike out Matt Adams and get Yadier Molina to hit into a double play.What could have been a quick ending to the game — and the season — turned into a minor speedbump. The Dodgers never trailed in the game.“If they’re able to score two, three, four runs there, not only does it give them a lead, it’s an emotional back-breaker for us,” Ellis said. “It actually gave us some good momentum going forward.”Added Greinke: “I was real nervous out there with that situation and trying to make a good pitch and get Adams to chase and get (Molina) into a double play.”Greinke pitched seven innings, allowing six hits, two runs, one walk and striking out four. He retired the final 13 batters he faced, then turned the ball over to Brian Wilson for a scoreless eighth inning.Gonzalez’s first homer, off Cardinals starter Joe Kelly, broke a 2-2 tie. Crawford made it 4-2 with his fourth home run of the postseason with another no-doubt blast halfway up the right-field bleachers in the fifth inning. Ellis’ first postseason home run gave the Dodgers an insurance run off Edward Mujica in the seventh.Ultimately, it didn’t matter that Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez bravely played six innings before the pain of a fractured rib became too much to bear. He finished 0 for 3 with a strikeout and grounding into a double play. Neither he nor Dodgers manager Don Mattingly gave an update about Ramirez’s condition after the game. He is expected to be a game-day decision Friday. Jansen survived a pair of runs in the ninth inning that made the final score deceptively close. He ultimately struck out the side, including pinch-hitter Adron Chambers as the potential go-ahead run to end the game.Juan Uribe’s RBI single off Kelly gave the Dodgers a 1-0 lead. Greinke helped his own cause later in the inning, driving in Yasiel Puig with an RBI single.The Cardinals got both runs back in the third inning. Matt Carpenter led off with a single and scored on Carlos Beltran’s line drive off the center-field fence. Beltran went to third base when Dodgers center fielder Andre Ethier overran the ball.Matt Holliday doubled to right-center field to score Beltran and tie the score 2-2. That inning ended with another double-play groundout by Molina, who finished 0 for 4.“That was huge as well,” Ellis said. “Kept us where we needed to be. To me, those (double plays) were the two at-bats that changed the game.”Kelly gave the Dodgers fits for seven innings in Game 1. The Dodgers must have been taking notes: They collected seven hits and four runs in five innings off the Anaheim native, handing him the first postseason loss of his career.The Dodgers hit four home runs in a playoff game for just the third time ever. The last time came in Game 1 of the 1978 National League Championship Series. The Dodgers’ first baseman hit two of a team record-tying four home runs Wednesday afternoon in a 6-4 victory over the Cardinals to send the best-of-7 series back to St. Louis.The Dodgers trail 3-2, needing a win Friday behind Clayton Kershaw to keep their World Series hopes alive.“We’ve been in a tough situation since late June. Very similar to where we could have easily folded the season and not be in this situation,” Gonzalez said.“The worst team in the major leagues,” added closer Kenley Jansen.Wednesday’s win was reminiscent of the Dodgers’ midseason rally, saving their best baseball for their most desperate moments. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The 25th anniversary of Kirk Gibson’s home run came and went, and the Dodgers still did not have a home run in the National League Championship Series. As Tuesday night crept up on Wednesday, with the specter of elimination looming, Adrian Gonzalez was asked if his team could erase a 3-1 deficit without hitting a ball out of the park.“Absolutely,” he said.Less than 24 hours later, Gonzalez wasn’t taking any chances.
