Makarapa start-up, South Africa style

Posted on by

first_img8 February 2010 Johannesburg-based Newtown Projects is turning out makarapas – the decorated miners’ helmets unique to South African football fans – by the hundreds, while retaining the individual, hand-made quality of the product. How they do it offers a simple lesson for local entrepreneurs. On the outskirts of downtown Johannesburg lies a district called Newtown, the focal point of an urban regeneration programme spanning the last six years. If one stops outside one of its most famously refurbished buildings, The Mills, and takes a walk to the back of the building, what awaits is a sports fan’s wonderland. Hundreds upon hundreds of makarapas fill the numerous shelves, cover the walls and lie on tables; being painted, sprayed, bent and dried. The enormous display wall carries the headgear of two of the country’s favourite club teams, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs, as well as many more of the 32 teams that will be competing in this year’s Fifa World Cup: Spain, England, Brazil, Honduras – you name it, they’ve got it. Paul Wygers, one of the architects who worked on South Africa’s iconic Constitutional Court building in Johannesburg, started the business, Newtown Projects, in October 2008.Seeing the gap – and taking it After listening to a discussion on radio one morning regarding what small businesses were doing for the 2010 Fifa World Cup, Wygers realised that there was not enough being done to create a unique product for the tournament. “I was in my office and saw a makarapa sitting there, one we had made before we bought this building, and so I spoke to two colleagues of mine in Durban and we decided to make these for the World Cup.” Newtown Projects is based on the idea of creating large numbers of makarapas while retaining the hand-painted images, a unique aspect of the product. Tackling the ‘pinch points’ in the process “After looking at how a makarapa is made, we realised there are two ‘pinch points’ in the process: cutting them, and painting them. So if you can get rid of the pinch point of cutting them, which is the most labour-intensive part of the whole process, you can up the numbers.” Paul and his associates eventually stumbled across a robotic arm to do the job. The arm, housed in Newtown Projects, is similar to the ones used in the motor industry. The most difficult patterns the machine will cut in about three minutes, but the quickest pattern it cuts in less than a minute. This means that the robot can turn out hundreds of makarapas each day. By programming the design into the computer, the operator can cut a number of different makarapas, and hence produce the large array of designs the company offers. For Wygers, this means he can offer more people employment, a key driver behind the starting of the company. “If you are only able to cut 10 makarapas a day, then you are only able to employ two painters. But if you are able to cut 800 a day, you are able to supply enough work to employ 50 people a day, or a 100 people a day. That thing can run for 24 hours, and it can cut 800 to a 1 000 makarapas a day, so we can never employ enough people.”The painters who make the makarapas unique The backbone of Newtown Projects are the painters who make the makarapas so unique with their talented eyes and brushes. Thomas “TJ” Jabulani has been working at Newtown Projects since April 2009, and has become the most senior base-painter on the team. “I was working at the airport before this, I was spray-painting, working on the cars and vehicles, logos and touch-up paint. I like it here, I enjoy the work and the people, and now I have my own Pirates makarapa.” Daniel Molokomme is a 27-year-old artist. “I started as a base-painter because I wasn’t good with the brushes yet,” he says. “I worked my way up, helping the artists when big orders came in. I enjoy art, before this I was in Limpopo doing my artwork there with a couple of friends. “I want to see my makarapas in the stands, and one day people will recall: ‘Hey, this guy did something amazing!’”2010 and beyond At the moment, 35 people are employed by Newtown Projects, but by the time the tournament starts the company will be aiming at having a staff of 40 to 50 people. “What we really wanted to get out of this business, was not only to do something with a uniquely South African product, but at the top of the list was job creation. This is hugely important,” says Wygers. Some local tour operators are already seeing the benefits of such an offering. “We had a guy in here the other day who found out about us,” Wygers says. “He does corporate travel packages and he is bringing a bunch of people over for the World Cup, and they need to be doing things while not watching matches, so one of his ideas was to bring them here to make their own makarapas, with our guys teaching them how to do it.” With plans to expand into the American sports market through baseball and American football, as well as into other sports such as rugby, demand is sure to grow.

NuoYa005 28” Women Ladies Long Straight Hair Full Wigs No Bang Middle Part Goddess Party, Great wig, full and natural looking

Posted on by

first_imgAttractive,,,basically live in this.Attractive high quality hair, my only gripe would be a little snug so slips but absolutely nothing a several clips will not likely fix.Good ailment would definately get much more wigs.Key specs for NuoYa005 Black 28” Women Ladies Long Straight Hair Full Wigs No Bang Middle Part Goddess Party:100% Brand New, ship from China, we ship by China Post Air Mail service, 18-28 days to arrive.Comments from buyers“Not the Wig i received but still a nice Wig for the value., Great wig, full and natural looking, Ok for the price”Not a good deal hairs in and they are not robust.Not the wig i gained but however a good wig for the price. . The wig in the image is the wig i desired. But the wig i acquired had a full fringe – it was a totally distinctive wig from the a single in the image. – even though it was a really nice wig and excellent benefit for funds, once again it was not the wig in the photo.Extravagant costume wig worth for cash excellent.This wig is okay for the price tag, i found when hoping to brush it, the hair would tumble out really simply, the parting of the hair isn’t the greatest but if your wanting a truly long black wig for halloween or a a single off event i would suggest it.Excellent wig, full and pure searching. Really full and all-natural seeking. The parting has some faux skin beneath so it doesn’t search quite phony. The hair is incredibly tender and it won’t have that dreadful plastic glow. Purchased it for reenactment but will also use it for halloween. Overall i am extremely satisfied with this wig.This wig is really long and quite really thick i was surprised i will surely be get againthankyou.The only trouble is that the parting of it is obvious it truly is bogus so i just dress in a bandana or a hat / beanie over it and you can not inform. It is really pretty and long and can be styled as its heat resistance. It truly is also incredibly long but not as well long would deffo advise for stage use & heading out in.last_img read more

Why are the Marathas so restive?

Posted on by

first_imgWhat is the trigger?In July, while the monsoon session of the legislature was on, a group of Maratha protesters launched a sit-in against the BJP government for not fulfilling the promises made to the community, including 16% reservation.The issue, however, spilled outside the Assembly, when Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis cancelled his visit to Pandharpur for the Ashadhi Ekadashi puja. He cited police reports that pointed to the possibility of snakes being released in the crowd. It enraged the community which accused him of false allegations and announced a State-wide protest and bandhs. The Marathas also wanted clarity on the Chief Minister’s statement that of the new recruitment for 72,000 posts, 16% would be reserved for the community.What did the government do?The bandh was marked by violence in Aurangabad, Navi Mumbai and the Chakan industrial area near Pune, with Maratha leaders alleging infiltration of anti-social elements. Eight Maratha youths committed suicide. Pressure from the community resulted in MLAs from the Shiv Sena, the Congress and the NCP offering to resign. The government finally announced a stay on the recruitment. It sought time till November to resolve the issue.Why raise the demand now?The community feels the government is dragging its feet on reservation. The struggle for special treatment has been going on for the past few years. On November 14, 2014, the Bombay High Court stayed the Maratha reservation granted by the Congress-NCP government. It said the State had crossed the 50% limit capped by the Supreme Court and that the Mandal Commission (1980), the National Commission for Backward Classes (2000) and the Bapat Commission (2008) had concluded that the Marathas were a socially advanced community. The Supreme Court refused to stay the order.In January 2015, the State government decided to submit additional information to the court in support of Maratha reservation. On July 13, 2016, the rape and murder of a minor Maratha girl fuelled the community’s demands. Till 2017, over 58 massive silent Maratha morchas were organised across the State.To make its case stronger in court, in November 2017, Justice Maroti Gaikwad (retd.) was appointed as the head of the State Backward Class Commission. It is compiling a report to ascertain the economic and social backwardness of the community.The report will be based on the findings of a sample survey conducted in five villages in every district. It is yet to be submitted to the government. The case is pending in the High Court. Till then, no decision on reservation can be taken.Is it justified?In 2008, the State Backward Class Commission, headed by Justice R.M. Bapat (retd.), did not endorse Maratha reservation, voicing opinion against the inclusion of the community in the OBC category as they were not “socially backward.” His report was neither accepted nor rejected by the State government. As the Maratha coordination committee launched a State-wide campaign called ‘Deta ki Jata’ (Are you giving or going back?), with the demand for reservation from 2011, the then Congress-NCP government, headed by Prithviraj Chavan, appointed a high-powered committee under Industries Minister Narayan Rane to submit a case to grant reservation for the Marathas. The report was submitted in June 2013. A year later, the Congress-NCP government cleared 16% reservation for the Marathas.What lies ahead?Mr. Fadnavis has promised to resolve the issue. A special legislative session will be called after the report of the Backward Class Commission, and the reservation is likely to be extended.Till then, protests are likely to continue. With elections approaching, all political parties are attempting to keep Marathas — politically one of the strongest contingents — happy. As for the Marathas, with no clear leader, cracks are visible.last_img read more
