The province is expanding health care services at the Cobequid Community Health Centre in Sackville so 10,000 Nova Scotians will receive better patient care with extended hours and an expanded medical/surgical clinic. Health and Wellness Minister Maureen MacDonald announced a $1.5-million investment today, Oct. 27, as part of the Better Care Sooner emergency health care plan. The centre will have new hours (from 7 a.m. to midnight) as well as an expanded clinic that gives patients who require follow-up services access to a doctor and tests the same day or next day. The expansion will help to address emergency department overcrowding and long waits to see doctors. The type of care provided at the clinic, such as transfusions, minor procedures and dressing changes, is less urgent. Patients needing follow-up care will to go directly to the clinic rather than stay in the emergency department. Early next year, the clinic, now open just three hours each weekday, will be open eight hours, five days a week. “As part of Better Care Sooner, we are expanding the hours for Cobequid Community Health Centre to improve patient care and access,” said Ms. MacDonald. “The demand for care here has risen and this is the next logical step for the communities and Nova Scotians who rely on this centre for safe, quality care.” Ellery Oicle has been a patient at the emergency department and used other services at the Cobequid Community Health Centre. “This facility and its staff and services are an important part of our community,” Mr. Oicle said. “I’m pleased to know that when I need it, there will be even more opportunity to be cared for here with the additional hours for the emergency department and day clinic.” Capital Health consulted with the community, family physicians and specialists and predicts the extended hours and new services will allow the centre to see 10,400 more patients per year. “The expansion of the medical/surgical day clinic to eight hours daily will have a significant impact on citizens of Bedford, Fall River, Sackville and surrounding areas as it will allow delivery of care closer to home,” said Dr. Michael Clory, site chief, Cobequid Community Health Centre emergency department. “Follow-up care from multiple disciplines that today have to be delivered at Queen Elizabeth II Health Science Centre clinics will, if appropriate, be provided at Cobequid Community Health Centre.” For more information on the province’s Better Care Sooner plan, visit www.gov.ns.ca/health/bettercaresooner .

Twitter Facebook When Singularity Productions came to Hope on November 29th, most community residents lauded the production company and its approach to capturing those exterior shots that are so critical to any film.Of course, there was the influx of large equipment trucks and other vehicles but they were, for the most part, kept away from the street by parking them at the CE Barry School parking lot. The production company also went to great lengths to keep the community informed of their actions and also made special allowances to ensure that both vehicular and pedestrian traffic were only minimally affected.“We’re aware that a movie can be disruptive, particularly in a smaller town like Hope, but we were very much aware of the fact that we have to be considerate of the needs of the community and responsive to any complaints,” said Kirk Johns, location manager for Singularity Productions.

SOCAN COO Jeff King, left, walks with CEO Eric Baptiste in company’s Toronto office, on Dec. 15. Mr. King says AI can help the group find talent by scanning social media. GALIT RODAN/THE GLOBE AND MAIL Advertisement Advertisement Nearly 20 years after file sharing upended the recorded music industry, Canadian musicians are looking to digital technology in a bid to recoup money they’ve long been leaving on the table.SOCAN and Re:Sound – two Canadian licensing agencies that collect that money for musicians – spent 2017 building world-leading partnerships that will help them better scan audio and video content online and on the radio, ensuring copyright holders are making as much money as possible while keeping an eye out for future stars, too.Musicians and the companies that invest in them are entitled to royalty payments when their music is played in public or – crucially – online, which is happening more than ever. Historically, royalty collection has been like fishing with a thousand rods, each requiring manual effort to pull in a few bucks from innumerable sources such as radio, TV, concerts, cafés and, more recently, on the internet. Now, the agencies that collect that money for musicians are investing in technology that works more like trawlers: hauling in more royalties, more efficiently.

New Delhi: Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das Monday met Finance Minister Arun Jaitely, and is believed to have discussed the current economic situation, ahead of the first bi-monthly monetary policy for 2019-20. The meeting of the six-member Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) to decide on the first bi-monthly policy statement for 2019-20 will be held from April 2 to 4. The policy will be announced on April 4. “It was a courtesy meeting, there is a tradition of RBI Governor meeting the Finance Minister before monetary policy, so it is part of that,” Das told reporter after the meeting. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal The bi-monthly policy assumes significance as it will be announced just a week before the commencement of the seven-phase general elections beginning April 11. According to sources, economic issues were discussed during the meeting. While the RBI cut the interest rate in its February monetary policy after a gap of 18 months, industry has started clamouring for another rate cut as retail inflation is below the RBI’s benchmark of 4 per cent and need for boosting growth is pressing. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boost Retail inflation inched up to a four-month high of 2.57 per cent in February, though it is still below the RBI’s benchmark, raising hopes of another round of rate cut to boost industrial growth, which slipped to 1.7 per cent on account of manufacturing sector slowdown. The central bank had reduced the key lending rate (repo) by 25 basis points in February to 6.25 per cent. Following the RBI rate cut, many banks announced up to 10 basis point reduction in their lending rates. However, there have also been complaints that banks do not pass on the entire benefit of policy rate cut to borrowers. Last month, the governor had held meeting with top officials of public and private sector banks to discuss rate transmission and persuade them to pass on the benefit of lower interest rates to the consumers.
“I extend special greetings to the victims of the earthquake in Nepal, a country that was instrumental in leading the United Nations General Assembly to designate this observance. I hope that the Nepalese people observing this holiday amid the rubble are able to take some measure of comfort from its message of human solidarity”, Mr. Ban said.The General Assembly, in 1999, recognized internationally the Day of Vesak, which marks the birth, enlightenment and passing of Buddha, and is celebrated by Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.The spirit of Vesak can help to animate a global response to the challenges of our day, noted the Secretary-General. “As the United Nations works for the adoption this year of a set of new sustainable development goals and a meaningful new agreement on climate change”, he added, “the Lord Buddha’s observation that all peoples are interconnected reminds us of the importance of uniting as one human family resolved to address our shared struggles based on common values.”That is why the head of the Organization asked members and leaders of all faith communities to join the UN in responding to the recent dangerous and destabilizing rise of violent extremism. “Toward that end, we recently welcomed eminent figures from the world’s major religions to two days of meetings at the United Nations on promoting tolerance and reconciliation”, he said, referring to a thematic debate of the General Assembly that took place on 21 and 22 April.
Redshirt-senior safety C.J. Barnett (4) stands with his teammates at the end of the game against Michigan Nov. 30 during ‘Carmen Ohio.’ OSU won, 42-41. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorBuckeye Nation likes to win. And with a football team that was 24-0 until just before midnight Saturday, it didn’t even remember what losing felt like.Ohio State fell to Michigan State in its first-ever Big Ten Championship appearance, 24-34.Twitter exploded, High Street bars cleared out, legitimate tears fell. Friends hugged one another, while the carefree kept drinking in anger, or maybe protest, and the sullen made their way home for the night.But there was more than just anger and tears in Buckeye Nation Saturday night, because Buckeyes aren’t just winners, they’re resilient, and they’re grateful.Woven in between statuses and tweets of mourning were words of thanks.Students thanked the team for a spectacular season, for a wild ride of being undefeated. They talked of what being a Buckeye is about, which is more than winning football games. And that’s the thing — as Buckeyes, we attend the greatest school in the country, and just about everyone you meet here firmly believes it.Being a Buckeye is singing “Carmen Ohio” with your arms wrapped tight around your best friends’ waists. It’s joining student organizations that shape you into new people and bring you pride. It’s walking across the Oval and passing friends unexpectedly, and leaving with a smile on your face. It’s having a test the next day but choosing to meet your friends at Chumley’s anyway without a second thought.It’s all-night study sessions, Buck-I-SERV trips, having friends in your classes and impromptu snowball fights. It’s jumping in Mirror Lake no matter the weather. It’s making new friends and wondering how you ever got along without them.Being a Buckeye is yelling “O-H” in public, no matter the state or country, and receiving an “I-O” in return. It’s being accepted as you are. It’s finding your passion and having the tools to pursue it.It’s opportunities that just don’t exist anywhere else.So were there discouraging statuses clogging my newsfeed about how OSU played “the worst possible quarter it could play?” Yes. But the ones I saw were overwhelmingly from outsiders to this great school. And as a student, seeing those posters who don’t attend OSU is frustrating, because they don’t understand what being a Buckeye is all about.But from members of Buckeye Nation, I was proud to see a different collective sentiment. Some were sad, in mourning, experiencing the loss personally. Yes, a few were angry, mostly from not knowing another way to react to the gut-punch that is one’s first loss in two seasons. But many praised the team on its season or described the reasons they still love being a Buckeye.Because at OSU, we expect to win. But we still stand together when we don’t.
Ohio State redshirt senior wrestler Bo Jordan battles Arizona State sophomore Zahid Valencia during a dual meet on Nov. 12. The Buckeyes won 31-12, but Jordan lost the match. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorNo. 2 Ohio State rode multiple late victories to a 31-12 win over No. 11 Arizona State in its first home dual meet of the season Sunday. In what many considered the day’s main event, fourth-ranked 174-pounder Ohio State redshirt senior Bo Jordan took on top-ranked redshirt sophomore Zahid Valencia.Valencia defeated Jordan by a 9-4 decision. Two takedowns in the first period gave Valencia an early lead that he did not relinquish. Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan was impressed with the performance of Arizona State’s top wrestler. “Valencia, at Bo’s weight, wrestled a fantastic match today,” Ryan said. “Credit to Valencia, he did a nice job. We had a couple chances to score and didn’t, he had some chances and did.”Ohio State senior heavyweight wrestler Kyle Snyder poses after winning a match against Arizona State on Nov. 12. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorThe last two matches of the day did not transpire as expected. At 197 pounds, Arizona State elected not to send a wrestler out and forfeited the match to top-ranked Ohio State redshirt sophomore Kollin Moore. Zeke Jones, head coach of the Sun Devils, then sent out redshirt junior Austyn Harris, who was listed at 197 pounds, to face Ohio State senior heavyweight Kyle Snyder. Snyder was expected to wrestle fourth-ranked heavyweight Tanner Hall. Snyder racked up takedowns against the lighter Harris and led 22-9 at the end of the second period with 3:15 of riding time. Snyder ended the match with a pin at the 6:17 mark to finish the day for Ohio State. It is not the first time that opposing teams have made interesting decisions with Snyder coming up in the lineup. “I remember my senior year of high school it was like a similar deal where people would switch up their lineup because of where I was on the team,” Snyder said. “I want to continue to be so dominant that teams have to do that.” Ohio State junior Te’Shan Campbell impressed in his first home dual meet match as a Buckeye. Coming into the match ranked No. 7 at 165 pounds, the transfer from Pittsburgh won a 14-0 decision against sixth-ranked redshirt sophomore Anthony Valencia. Ten of Campbell’s points came from near falls while he registered 1:41 of riding time. “I watched a lot of film on him wrestling and the match that we had last year and just knew that there was an opportunity for me to break away and score on top,” Campbell said. Ohio State redshirt junior Micah Jordan suffered what was a bit of a surprising loss to 13th-ranked redshirt sophomore Josh Maruca. Fifth-ranked Jordan registered two very early takedowns before surrendering two to Shields. A late takedown using Jordan’s wrapped leg and knee gave Shields the insurance points for victory. In the 149-pound class, 11th-ranked redshirt sophomore Ke-Shawn Hayes defeated Arizona State’s Josh Maruca by a 6-3 decision. Sunday was the first time that Hayes had a chance to compete in front of a Columbus crowd after suffering an injury last season. “It’s nice to wrestle in front of the home fans,” Hayes said. “I’ve only been on the sidelines watching that before. The atmosphere was electric. It was great to be out there.” The first match of the day at 125 pounds ended in a fall in the third period. Ohio State freshman Brakan Mead fell 6-0 to seventh-ranked redshirt junior Ryan Millhof. The match was Mead’s first in dual-meet competition with the Buckeyes since replacing All-American Nate Tomasello, who is out with a knee injury. Ohio State junior wrestler Myles Martin faces off against Arizona State’s Kordell Norfleet. Martin won the match and the Buckeyes won the meet 31-12 on Nov. 12. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | SportsSecond-ranked junior Myles Martin earned the first pin of the day at 184 pounds and put the Buckeyes back into the scoring column after Bo Jordan’s loss. Martin pinned Arizona State freshman Kordell Norfleet at the 4:31 mark after a pair of early takedowns. Two early takedowns powered sixth-ranked junior Joey McKenna past Arizona State freshman Cory Crooks in a 6-1 decision at 141 pounds. The match was McKenna’s first as a Buckeye after transferring from Stanford in the offseason. Sophomore Luke Pletcher, who is ranked No. 10, brought the crowd to its feet early in the meet when his 133-pound match with senior Sun Devil Ali Naser went to extra time. Pletcher’s 7-5 sudden victory decision win came thanks to a takedown with only four seconds remaining. Prior to the Buckeyes’ dual meet with Arizona State, two banners were dropped at St. John Arena in honor of a pair of accomplishments during the 2016-2017 season. Snyder’s national championship from last season was recognized along with the team’s Big Ten championship. The Buckeye wrestlers will continue their season Nov. 21 when they welcome Cleveland State and Kent State to Columbus for the 2017 Thanksgiving Throwdown.

There’s still six weeks until the Xbox One officially launches, but Microsoft has been manufacturing the console for a while now. Major Nelson proved that by sharing a couple of images early last month showing pallets of the next-gen machine waiting to ship out to retailers.But if the retail version of the console is being stock piled across the US and Europe, there’s every chance one or two may disappear unnoticed, and that seems to be exactly what has happened.In the video below, a random kid seems to have got his hands on a retail machine and decided to create a makeshift unboxing video, albeit with the Xbox One already unboxed. His explanation as to how he managed to get the machine: “I got it today because of reasons.”The video seems to show a real Xbox One along with controller, Kinect, and all the required cables. So how did Microsoft allow this to happen, or was it planned?There’s every chance this is just a clever marketing campaign by Microsoft. What better way to get people watching a video and thinking about the Xbox One than pretending to leak one to a random kid?If it isn’t an official marketing video you can bet Microsoft is now scrambling to find out how this happened. I also hope for the kid’s sake he doesn’t hook up the console and attempt to connect to the Internet. As soon as he does he may find the console gets remotely bricked and someone arriving shortly afterwards to reclaim the machine.
Baleines : la France condamne à son tour la reprise de la chasse en AntarctiqueA l’instar des Etats-Unis, qui a publié en début de semaine une déclaration commune avec l’Australie, la Nouvelle-Zélande et les Pays-Bas, la France a condamné la reprise de la chasse à la baleine en Antarctique par les pêcheurs japonais. Paris appelle le pays à renoncer à sa campagne de chasse annuelle.Quelques jours après la publication d’une déclaration commune des Etats-Unis, de l’Australie, de la Nouvelle-Zélande et des Pays-Bas, la France condamne à son tour le départ des baleiniers japonais vers l’Antarctique pour leur campagne annuelle de chasse des cétacés. À lire aussiLes images d’un incroyable phénomène sous-marin aperçu sous l’Antarctique (Vidéo)Dans un communiqué publié par le ministère des Affaires étrangères, Paris déplore la reprise de la pêche à la baleine “en dépit du moratoire adopté par la Commission baleinière internationale en 1982 et qui s’applique depuis 1986 à l’égard du Japon”. L’archipel nippon est autorisé à mener cette campagne car elle est déclarée comme étant réalisée à des fins de recherche scientifique. Mais pour les pays et associations défenseurs des cétacés, cette chasse n’est rien d’autre qu’une pêche commerciale déguisée. “Cette pratique de chasse scientifique intervient en dehors du contrôle de la Commission Baleinière Internationale et que la majorité des recherches modernes peuvent se conduire sans la mise à mort des cétacés” souligne le ministère. “Fidèle à son positionnement en faveur d’une stricte protection des baleines”, la France appelle alors le Japon à cesser “ces opérations de chasse à grande échelle au sein du cadre général défini par la CBI, organe multilatéral, acteur de la gestion et de la protection des cétacés depuis l’entrée en vigueur du moratoire sur la chasse commerciale et l’instauration du sanctuaire de l’océan Austral” en 1994. “Nous exprimons le vœu d’une évolution du Japon au sein de cette organisation” conclut le communiqué.

Déforestation : WWF accuse le papetier APP de ne pas tenir ses promessesLe papetier indonésien Asia Pulp & Paper (APP), qui appartient au groupe Sinar Mas, s’était engagé à préserver l’environnement, et tout particulièrement un sanctuaire de tigres à Sumatra. Mais d’après le WWF, loin de tenir cette promesse, le groupe continue les coupes à blanc dans des forêts naturelles, notamment dans l’habitat des éléphants, des tigres et des orangs-outangs.Une enquête menée par Eyes On the Forest, une coalition d’associations de protection de l’environnement dont fait partie le WWF, dénonce les promesses non tenues du géant du papier indonésien APP. “Une entreprise responsable ? De la foutaise !” s’insurge l’ONG. La société, appartenant au groupe Sinar Mas s’est targuée à de nombreuses reprises cette année d’agir en faveur de la préservation de l’environnement dans le sanctuaire du tigre Senepis.Mais en réalité, “les coupes à blanc des forêts effectuées par APP, notamment dans l’habitat des éléphants, tigres et orangs-outangs, ainsi que les immenses impacts du changement climatiques dus au drainage des tourbières pour établir des plantations à essences rapides, sont complètement contraire à l’image environnementalement responsable que se donne l’entreprise dans sa dernière campagne médiatique”, déplore le WWF après la publication de ce rapport baptisé “La vérité derrière le greenwashing d’APP”.L’entreprise s’était engagée à n’utiliser que du bois issu de plantations, et à ne plus se fournir en bois de forêts naturelles. Mais il n’a jamais atteint ses objectifs. “Le WWF pense qu’APP, à la vue de ses pratiques passées et de ses capacités de production ne tiendra pas non plus son nouvel engagement pour 2015 comme ce fut le cas précédemment” affirme l’association. Des analyses satellites réalisées entre juin et octobre derniers ont mis au jour les pratiques d’un fournisseur d’APP, PT Ruas Utama Jaya, réalisant des coupes rases de forêts à l’intérieur du sanctuaire du tigre de Senepis.Le WWF appelle à ne plus faire affaire avec APPÀ lire aussiLes tamanoirs, des animaux plus dangereux qu’ils n’en ont l’air”Ceci est une preuve claire que les publicités publiées mondialement par APP affirmant que l’entreprise protège le tigre de Sumatra sont totalement exagérées”, déplore Anwar Purwoto, le responsable forêt du WWF Indonésie.L’association rappelle que le papetier s’était vivement opposé à la création du sanctuaire, craignant de la voir empiéter sur des zones qu’il convoitait pour son exploitation. Le WWF appelle alors les acheteurs et investisseurs à “ne plus soutenir les activités d’APP conduisant à la destruction des forêts tropicales et de l’habitat des derniers tigres de Sumatra”.Le 16 décembre 2011 à 09:37 • Maxime Lambert
Raheem Sterling paid tribute to Jadon Sancho’s work ethic and insists he’s unsurprised on how quickly the teenager’s adapted at EnglandThe 18-year-old winger made his international debut for the senior England team in Friday’s goalless draw at Croatia by replacing Sterling for the final 12 minutes.Despite the short amount of time on the pitch, Sancho left observers impressed with his seamlessly transition into the Three Lions squad.But Sterling, who trained alongside the youngster at City before his switch to Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund, insists that it is of no surprise to him.“He is a really good talent and someone I’ve thought highly of since the first time I saw him at Manchester City when he was training with us in pre-season,” said Sterling, according to the Irish Mirror.“I thought highly of him – his work ethic and what he does with the ball. I know him really well and he’s someone that is really modest but when he’s on the field he wants to express his ability.”Sterling also backed Sancho’s shock decision to leave for Germany last year.“For someone so young to back themselves to go abroad is a credit to them,” he added.“To go abroad so young and back yourself, that shows a lot about the person. He could have taken the easy route and stayed at City but he saw himself developing better.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“That’s what it’s about in football – you have to judge your own situation and he did that perfectly and all credit to him.“He has knuckled down in Germany and, when you’re that age, it’s probably something you need. To have that seclusion and be by yourself a bit and to concentrate solely on football. I’m really happy for him.”After Friday’s match, the England squad had a break at the team hotel with Sterling and Sancho getting involved in a video game showdown between Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.Playing as Juventus, Sancho led the Italian side to a 3-1 win over Sterling’s PSG – which the latter certainly didn’t enjoy come the full-time whistle.We all know that friend 👋😂🤣#Sterling #Sancho #FIFA #FIFA19[🎥IG/sanchooo104] pic.twitter.com/eraKZXU4WY— Xtra Minute (@XtraminuteTV) October 14, 2018

Ten Rohingya Muslim men with their hands bound kneel in Inn Din village. Picture taken 1 September 2017. ReutersMyanmar’s Rohingya refugees have told a UN envoy who visited their camp in Bangladesh this week that they will return home if it is safe and if they are granted citizenship rights, a UN statement said Tuesday.UN envoy for Myanmar, Christine Schraner Burgener, met the Muslim Rohingya in Cox’s Bazar during a three-day visit to Bangladesh from July 14 to 16, just weeks after holding talks with Myanmar’s leaders on the refugee crisis.The envoy “heard from the people accounts of unimaginable atrocities committed in Rakhine State,” said a UN statement.“Despite these serious violations of human rights, they expressed to the envoy their hope to return home if security could be guaranteed and citizenship could be provided,” it added.More than 700,000 ethnic Rohingya have fled an offensive by Myanmar troops launched nearly a year ago in reprisal for attacks on border posts by Rohingya rebels.UN rights officials have documented allegations of mass killings, rape and torching of villages at the hands of Myanmar’s military, which the Myanmar authorities have denied.The United States, Britain and France as well as the United Nations have described the military campaign as ethnic cleansing.Schraner Burgener, who was appointed in April, said Bangladesh needs more international aid to host the Rohingya and tackle the risk of landslides from monsoons that have already killed 12 people near the camps.The envoy will deliver her first briefing to the Security Council on Monday, which will be held behind closed doors.
Go back to the enewsletterJohannesburg’s Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa has a unique story. It was built in the early 1980s by insurance magnate Douw Steyn, best known today for Comparethemarket (he turned the family home into a hotel in 2000 – it now has 53 suites).On February 11th 1990 Steyn’s good friend Nelson Mandela, whose life sentence had included 18 years on Robben Island, was released from Victor Verster Prison in Cape Town, and he came to stay. During his many months as a houseguest, Mandela wrote Long Walk to Freedom, which was published in 1994. Today, that book, in English and many international translations, is just one of the tomes exhibited in the Mandela gallery that extends off the hotel’s main hallway: there are also masses of relevant photos, and memories from Mandela’s long-time PA, Zelda La Grange, who now lives in Cape Town.Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa | Piano LoungeSouth Africans have a natural affinity for the one-time home of ‘Madiba’ (father). At their first visit, foreigners are attracted because they too are intrigued by the whole Mandela story. After that, they are drawn back by The Saxon’s six hectares of gorgeous grounds with lakes, and by the food and service. GM George Cohen, who has been here since 2005, has a magnificent team of 330 who only seem to leave if they need to move away from Johannesburg.Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa | Luxury SuiteI had met chef Jane-Thérèse Mulry when she was cooking at Qualia, in the Whitsundays. Here, she oversees the hotel’s food, including all-day Qunu, named for Mandela’s home village. Her modern-African menu is complemented by veggie options. I started with a mushrooms and hemp pointillist-look starter but her beetroot main course was magnificent. An enormous baked beetroot had been bisected and encased in pasty, to look like the best beef Wellington (and it went jolly well with Rijk’s Private Cellar Pinotage 2013 Tulbagh).Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa | Nelson Mandela Platinum SuiteI had stayed in suite 200 before. It exemplifies the best of Africa, natural woods, superb art, and space. Easy-flip wood shutters eight French windows look out to a private terrace and seemingly endless lawns broken up by lakes and enormous trees.Because I had an 8 a.m. appointment at the spa – first-class, La Prairie and superbly-trained therapists – I went for room service breakfast. It was notable partly for delivery. Exactly on the dot of seven, a senior gentleman wheeled in the most beautiful wood trolley, with a pull-out drawer holding plentiful supplies of cutlery. I had flowers, enough perfect papaya for a lifetime and so much else, and coffee came in a stainless plunger. It goes without saying of course that I also had my own coffee maker in the suite.George Cohen says that for sentimental reasons, his boss Douw Steyn, who lives elsewhere these days, will never brand The Saxon. But this is a luxury hotel that will always be different, and not only for its collections, including a whole wall of African rushwork baskets and so on. This is a luxury hotel with the highest standards, throughout. The gym, for instance, has superb and well-maintained Technogym pieces, and PowerPlate and TRX straps. Come out of the gym, to a series of pools, one heated for swimming, another alive with fat orange koi.Four Seasons Hotel The Westcliff, Johannesburg also has history, which it owes to ‘The Westcliff”: Orient-Express visionary James Sherwood made it one of ‘his’ hotels in 1998. After it was bought in 2012 by polo-playing entrepreneur Ali Albwardy, working 50-50 with B.S. Ong, it was not surprising that they switched to Four -Seasons management. Both are serial Four-Seasons owners.And Four Seasons Johannesburg The Westcliff, as it now is, has found its niche, thanks to arts-loving GM/RVP Sebastien Carre. He and his Australian wife have made this hotel the centre of Johannesburg’s vibrant arts and culture scene. And arts and culture are one of the things to do in town (local gallery addicts recommend the Wits Art Museum, and Arts on Main, in Maboneng). And there are sports to watch, say cricket at Wanderers stadium. Or head for Jazz, at Katzy’s, or the Marabi Club.You’ll also find jazz among the arts at Four Seasons Johannesburg The Westcliff. As its name implies, the 117-room hotel is on one slope of a hill, hence the name of its art programme, Art on the Hill. 65 people, no space for more, enjoy an evening of Keith Frisley’s cooking plus a performance (see a jazz evening, above). Coming up this August 25, for instance, is brilliant Pretoria-born Tutu Puoane: she is married to Belgian pianist Ewout Pierreux and it is really worth checking them, perhaps both, on YouTube.The hotel is more like a steeply-inclined winding street of houses. Restaurants are at the top of the hill, and now, fortunately, a pair of sculpture-look elevators make the climb easier – though walking the cobbled walkway is great cardiac exercise (the gym is down at base level, next to the hotel’s Deli, where I was happy to see regular local businessmen having healthy breakfasts en route to their offices). Front desk and concierge are also down there. Concierge Diniy D’Hamzah showed me how the hotel’s boutique is now run in-house: it is displayed in the concierge area and it is the concierges — who know what guests like — who do the buying. Current best-sellers with Americans, he said, are African-type baskets made with colourful telephone-type wires rather than traditional rush.My suite, 301, had a sizeable terrace for sunbathing. I looked over its wall, down to the hotel’ s multi-level wine cellar and adjacent outdoor tasting space. Further down was Johannesburg zoo, with an occasional trumpet from the Elephant House. Back inside, I looked around a pale grey and white ambience, highlighted by some old maps and scenic countryside views. It was midday snack hour. The hotel works with South Africa’s top healthy-eating specialist, Christine Phillips. I had her detox salad bowl, red and white shredded cabbage, bok choi, red onion, sugar snap peas, broccoli, fresh mint, coriander, sprouts, cashew nuts, seeds. There was Thai dressing to pour over, and instead of the optional chicken strips, I opted for salmon.Dinner was at the hotel’s Flames restaurant, which is extremely popular with South Africa’s more-successful millennials (in Johannesburg’s Diamond Walk at Sandton Mall, I was amazed at the size of the Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci stores). My new friend Natalie Harrison filled me in on local trends, and also on hotel guests’ growing enthusiasm for escorted cycling tours through Soweto and guided explanations of Ponte Tower, the 54-storey structure that see-sawed from the height of whites’ luxury housing down to the nadir of under-privileged hangouts and now, up again; it is a showplace of arts+living+co-working. And in between learning about Johannesburg life, there was time, too, to do justice to Knysna oysters and a Kalahari tomahawk, from the Karoo, and Southern Right Pinotage 2018 from Hermanus.Go back to the enewsletter
