Mallow Mia caramel gourmet marshmallows – mallowmia.comThis is Linda’s ‘My Donegal’:(1) What is your favourite place in Donegal and why?I’d say absolutely anywhere along the Atlantic drive on a sunny day. – it’s got breathtaking scenery and the beaches are never overcrowded. I also recently rediscovered Glenveagh, I kept saying to myself “oh wow it’s gorgeous”. We have so much on our doorstep; it’s hard to choose a favourite.(2) What would your ideal day off in Donegal be like? I’d set off early, go up Errigal, come down feeling all accomplished and have a bbq and a lie down on the nearest beach. That’s the sort of thing that fills my soul. If a boat trip round Sliabh Liag could be fitted in that’d be even better. (3) Who is the one person in Donegal that you look up to and why? I love what Erin Mc Ginty is doing with her Instagram page @coolestplaceontheplanet. She’s great at showing what’s available in the county.(4) Daniel O’Donnell or Packie Bonner? Packie Bonner has more emotional memories for me but I’d be more star struck by Daniel.(5) What has been Donegal’s proudest moment in recent years? It’s probably being named the coolest place on the planet by National Geographic. My son wouldn’t forgive me if I didn’t also mention the Star Wars filming at Malin Head as well.(6) If you could change one thing about Donegal what would it be? Make us all appreciate what we have here. The countryside is so beautiful I just don’t get it when I see fly tipping at a local shore & litter along road sides. I’d love us to take more pride in our county. Plus I’d paint all the buildings in small villages bright happy colours like in Kinsale.(7) What is your favourite Donegal-made product? There’s so many great craftspeople and artists but for now I’d say Kinnegar beerMallow Mia founder Linda McClean(8) Who is Donegal’s greatest ambassador around the world and why? We’ve Donegal people all around the world and they’re all the real ambassadors of the county.(9) Who is Donegal’s most successful businessperson in your opinion?I love what Laura Bonner has been able to achieve with the MUFF liquor company in just a couple of years.(10) Who is your favourite Donegal sportsperson of all time? Packie Bonner for the penalty shoot out memories(11) What is your favourite Donegal restaurant?I really enjoy a great steak, a beach and a cosy pub atmosphere so would say the firebox grill in Fahan.Mallow Mia lemon meringue gourmet marshmallows – mallowmia.com(12) What is your favourite Donegal saying or expression?‘Jeees it’s wile warm’. Or if someone tells you a sad story you’d say ‘ aw that’s wile’.(13) What is the biggest challenge facing the people of Donegal today?Brexit is a major headache for sure. I live close to The N13 and there’s so much traffic on that stretch between Derry & Letterkenny. I’m just still hoping they’ll see sense and it won’t go ahead. Who knows.(14) What is your favourite Donegal food? I love freshly baked wheaten bread.(15) Is there anything that really annoys you about Donegal or its people?Donegal people are really friendly & helpful. I totally recognized that when I came back home after being abroad. We can be a bit too modest though which is endearing in some ways but doesn’t always serve us well in the big bad world. Congratulating ourselves now and again wouldn’t go a miss.(16) If you had a million euro to improve something in Donegal what would it be?There’s a lot of work to be done on mental health. I’d get schools to teach kids how to deal with problems and anxieties via CBT. If we change the way we think we can change how we feel and behave. It’s a vital but very basic life skill.(17) What has been the most exciting moment of your career so far?I headed off to Heidelberg in Germany at 24 to become a beverage technologist at a flavour company.I filled my Vauxhall Nova with all my belongings and drove there myself. I could only speak about 10 words of German &, knew no one there but it didn’t bother me one bit. It was all about the great unknown and freedom. I started my career in drinks development there, and looking back it was a real adventure.Mallow Mia raspberry gourmet marshmallows – mallowmia.com(18) Is there anything about Donegal that you are very proud of?I love how when I mention I’m from Donegal the reaction is positive. I usually get an ‘aw I love Donegal’ reaction from the other person. That’s really cool.Would you like to share your perspective on Donegal?

FUTURE OF DONEGAL AIRPORT SECURED AS NEW CARRIER ANNOUNCED FOR DAILY DUBLIN ROUTE

first_imgThe future of Donegal Airport has been given a major boost after the announcement that a new carrier has been secured for one of its main routes.However Aer Arann, the company which has operated the Carrickfin to Dublin flight for a number of years, is now being replaced by Scottish regional carrier Loganair.Details of the news will be announced later this morning by Transport Minister Leo Varadkar. The new contract is for the three year period starting on 3 November 2011 with two return flights each day.Aer Arann will now operate the Dublin to Kerry route.Minister Varadkar said: ‘Donegal and Kerry are the most remote of the regional airports from Dublin. This was a key factor in the Government’s decision to continue funding for the PSO air services to these two airports for a further three years, despite the current public funding constraint. Renewal of the contracts in 2014 will depend on how extensively the services are used, and on public finances’.“These links will contribute towards balanced regional development in terms of business and tourism. People in Donegal will be able to conduct commercial or personal business in Dublin and to return home the same day. “It will also support the tourism industry in Donegal, as tourists on relatively short breaks can reach their holiday destinations quickly through the onward connection between Dublin and Donegal or Kerry.“I am confident that the two operators will provide a quality service on the routes which will meet the needs of the public.“I am also pleased that there was a good level of interest in the tender process with four airlines submitting tenders providing a variety of offerings on the two routes.”The confirmation on the new three year contract for Donegal Airport has been welcomed by Labour Senator Jimmy Harte.“This is a major shot in the arm for Donegal especially from a tourism and economic perspective,” he said.

SA goes for software freedom

first_img22 August 2005South Africa is committed to using open-source software in government departments, with officials and software specialists meeting this week to thrash out a formal plan for its adoption.Open source software (OSS) is computer code developed by a global community of volunteers and freely available for use, modification and distribution – unlike more widely known “closed source” proprietary software.The Open Source Task Force Conference, being held in Johannesburg on Monday and Tuesday, aims to develop a framework for OSS adoption. Task team conveners Go Open Source say the plans devised at the conference will be presented to President Thabo Mbeki later this year during his international advisory commission.According to Mark Shuttleworth, South African internet billionaire, afronaut and OSS champion, open source will allow South Africa to develop its own technology skills – instead of relying on expensive imports.“Companies and countries that embrace open source can improve their efficiency and competitiveness,” Shuttleworth told Business Day. “It drives skills creation, which is a fundamental challenge facing every country.”In developed countries, the private sector drives the use of OSS to replace more expensive and less flexible branded software, Shuttleworth said. But in less developed countries the government must lead by using open source to educate young people and deliver services more efficiently.Government use of OSSMany government departments already use open source to some degree for data processing and information management, according to Business Day.This includes the new anticorruption information management system for the Department of Public Services and Administration. In a rural healthcare project, clinics book appointments with specialists at regional hospitals using cellphone messaging.The South African government is the country’s biggest spender on information technology, reports Business Day. It spend millions every year on software for almost 400 000 PCs.The State Information Technology Agency’s policy is to use open source wherever it proves more cost-effective or more adaptable than proprietary packages. It introduced the policy in 2003 after receiving a R485-million bill from Microsoft for three-year licences for 100 000 operating systems, desktop suites and internet technologies.Officials attending the Go Open Source conference will be urged to draw up plans to turn talk into action.“I hope we will emerge with an action plan for each government department,” Shuttleworth told Business Day.The conference will also be attended by firms able to offer technical support. Hewlett-Packard project director for emerging markets Clive Smith says only free-to-adapt OSS will allow the creation of lower cost, local language and customised systems.Software Freedom DayMeanwhile, the worldwide Software Freedom Day is to be celebrated on 10 September 2005, with the Go Open Source campaign coordinating a number of events across South Africa.There will be “installfests”, where members of the public can bring their computers and get help installing and using Linux and open source software. Each event is to be hosted by local Linux User Groups, with Go Open Source providing additional support.“We have around 200 registered teams this year from all over the world,” says Henrik Nilsen Omma, president of the non-profit Software Freedom International, official organisers of the event.The biggest change from last year, says Omma, is the sponsorship of Canonical, who are shipping about 15 000 CDs to teams worldwide. The custom-made CD will include a Live Linux image and Windows open source software.“In 2004 the pioneering teams put in a great effort in burning all their own CDs, which was great, but this year we look forward to a more uniform and professional CD to give to the public.”“We are pleased to have a wide distribution of teams,” Omma says. “The interest from the African continent has also been impressive this year.”African countries taking part include Benin, Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa and Zimbabwe.EventsIn Johannesburg, LinuxChix Africa will celebrate Software Freedom Day at Wits University with presentations by guest speakers, an installfest and OSS handouts. There will also be quizzes and games, a poetry session, a dance performance, and even a play performed by students titled “Imagine a Future Without Linux”.In Pretoria, the Innovation Hub will offer guest speakers, an installfest and free CD handouts.In Potchefstroom, the Open Cafe will offer free internet access, Linux installs, OSS and a bring-and-braai. The cafe will also screen RevolutionOS, the award-winning documentary about the open source movement, and launch a new Creative Commons multimedia room.In Durban, Free Culture South Africa is hosting a public lecture and FOSS exhibition at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. The lecture will be given by OpenOffice.org South Africa founder Craig Adams and the exhibition will include posters, flyers and software handouts.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Altius invests in consumer website

first_img23 September 2008South African consumer affairs and complaints website getclosure! has announced that local black-owned investment company Altius Investment Holdings has acquired a stake in the business.The getclosure! complaint management portal allows consumers to submit their complaints online, delivering the complaint to the appropriate person in the supplier organisation and managing the complaint process until it is resolved.Funds from the investment will be used to promote the service and to fund enhancements to the getclosure! portal, including mobile access to the service.“Our experience is that most suppliers want to be told if their service has been sub-standard and welcome the opportunity to put it right,” getclosure! founder and director Ian Donovan said in a statement this week.“And we like the fact that a growing number of consumers are using our portal to compliment suppliers when they experience exceptional service.”Increased service performanceThe Ask Afrika Orange Index 2008, due for release in November, shows that service performance levels in South Africa have increased since last year from 58.2% to 61.6%.There is room for improvement however, with 65% a reasonable goal to aim for, according to Ask Afrika, adding that harnessing the reach of the internet to manage the complaints service process was one way to ensure effective outcomes and raise service levels in the country.“Many South Africans tolerate poor service without speaking up. By cleverly using the internet, getclosure! has made it quick, easy and cost effective to lodge a complaint,” said Society of Consumer Affairs Professionals South Africa chairperson Anne Sayers.“It then backs this up with an effective complaints resolution process that is not about naming and shaming the company involved.”Active usageSix months after the launch of the service, more than 500 suppliers actively use getclosure! to respond to customer complaints and compliments. Companies have the option to subscribe to the service to receive detailed reporting on complaints handled, customer feedback and the option to customise the landing pages.Subscribers to the service currently include FNB, Pick n Pay, Spar, Toyota, KFC and Cell C.“getclosure! is ideally placed to assist the business community and public sector to raise their service levels,” said Altius executive chairman Anwah Nagia. “The team is passionate about improving customer service and has built an exciting venture with a loyal community in a short space of time.”Altius is a South African-based investment company that facilitates community upliftment, development and empowerment through its investments, with a portfolio that spans agriculture, minerals and industrial waste management.The investment in getclosure! is Altius’ first foray into the digital world.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
