Grahamstown arts take to the streets

first_imgWest African performance artist Gregory da Silva, otherwise known as the Famous Egg Man, on the streets of Grahamstown during the National Festival of the Arts.Khanyi Magubane As the 1820 Settlers Monument perched on a hill overlooking Grahamstown comes into view, the place seems like just another quiet Eastern Cape town. But as our car draws closer, eventually winding into the broad boulevards of High Street in the town centre, the crowds of people, buskers, actors, traders, street performers and more are anything but quiet.They’re all here for the National Festival of the Arts, a 10-day feast of performance that invades this small university town every midwinter. Now in its 35th year, globally the Grahamstown Festival is second in size only to Scotland’s Edinburgh Festival.This year’s festival, held from 2 to 12 July, offers the usual feast of drama, dance, jazz, stand-up comedy, arts and crafts, food galore, student and street theatre.The theme is “10 DAYS OF AMAZ!NG”. But with over 400 stage productions on offer – and average of 40 a day – for me it might be more a case of 10 days of the Amazing Race, from venue to venue. It’s my fourth time at the festival, but even I feel a little overwhelmed.Grahamstown in midwinter is normally a forbiddingly cold place, but this year the weather is surprisingly balmy, so we take a stroll about town to see what’s up.There are street musicians, an artist producing portraits on the pavement, and throngs of young Grahamstown kids, their faces painted white, performing for passersby. There’s also the Famous Egg Man, Gregory da Silva, a performance artist from West Africa with a his signature headdress piled with, you guessed it, eggs.Among the festival-goers, musicians and markets we suddenly see a group of men in orange prison overalls running down the street, with others in police uniforms in pursuit.After the initial shock we realise that, of course, it’s some kind of performance. In fact, it’s guerilla marketing for Prison Codes, a gritty play about life in the Western Cape’s gang-dominated prisons, told from the perspective of the notorious 27s gang. The actors stage their mock-escape through the streets of Grahamstown to get people into their theatre.George Hill, the play’s producer, tells me that festival-goers sometimes don’t realise it’s just advertising. “Some of them were scared for real,” he says. “We hope this will give them a taste of what’s to come in this hard-hitting production.”The Prison Codes cast aren’t the only ones to use these tactics, with this year’s 234-page programme proving there’s a lot of competition. With both the main and fringe festivals boasting strong productions, casts, directors and producers use aggressive marketing campaigns to fight for audiences.Actors wander the streets, dressed in their costumes, handing out flyers and begging everyone to see their plays.One production that isn’t shy to make an impression is YES!, an adult-humour play that explores the quirky side of sex. The cast can be regularly seen parading the streets in nightgowns – the women in pink and the men in blue.A woman in pink approaches me, handing me a business card with the production’s details. Then she looks me in the eye and asks, “What makes a person a better lover?”While my cheeks heat up, another actor puts a small bottle in my hand. It turns out to be something called Afrodité, a gel with apparent libido-enhancing properties, designed specifically for women. A man nearby is given a male version of the product, and seems as unable to conceal his bewildered embarrassment as me. They certainly got our attention.But the performers on the streets aren’t all brazen actors punting their shows. There are plenty of street musicians, such as the marimba band Sibonile. Established in 2006, the band is made up of six men and a woman, all of them from Grahamstown – and all of them blind.Richard Nzwana, the group’s spokesperson, says they experimented with a number of instruments before they hit on the marimba – a large percussion instrument, similar to a xylophone, made of wood.“We started playing the bongo drums and the piano, and then we heard of marimbas, and we decided to try them,” he says.The band taught themselves to play, later securing the services of a marimba coach, who taught them by encrypting Braille on the instruments. Sibonile performed at the festival’s opening ceremony on 1 July, and will be taking part in the annual National Marimba Festival taking place on 25 to 26 July in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg.“We are currently the defending champions,” says Nzwana. He’s confident they will walk away with the first prize again this year.Putting together a festival of this size does not come without hefty costs, so it’s run with sponsorship from a number of institutions. The principal sponsor is Standard Bank, which was been supporting the festival for 25 years.Other sponsors include the National Lottery, the National Arts Council, the Eastern Cape Government, with media sponsors The Sunday Independent newspaper and satellite television broadcaster MNet.Other than the main and fringe festivals, there’s also the Spirit Festival, for those with a faith perspective on arts, which includes a gospel music workshop. Then there’s the Children’s Arts Festival, which offers theatre, performances by clowns, and as films made for children.Amazing arts, all of it.Related articles Lennox sings for HIV/Aids Words come to life at book fair South Africa’s rainbow salsa Art for all at Joburg Art Fair SA films scoop awards at Fespaco Useful links National Arts Festival Standard Bank National Lottery National Arts Councillast_img read more

10 Reasons Why Now Is Not A Good Time To Buy Apple Stock

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Apple#Apple TV#Finance Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Reason 10: Conspiracy Theory TimeApple, along with the rest of the market, is manipulated – by, whom I don’t know: Ben Bernanke, Jamie Dimon and Goldman Sachs, the Rothschilds, aliens from the hollow earth – all definite possibilities. Last Friday, the blogosphere was alight after Apple closed at exactly $500.00 when we all knew a close under $500 would be very bad for Apple, and thus the market, because in the last few years, Apple was the market. But that all changed. If you were watching closely, you might have wondered why AAPL plummeted five bucks in the last moments of trading last Friday. Apparently, some whale dumped 800,000 shares of Apple one second before the market close, and bought an equal dollar amount of ES-Minis (S&P 500 futures).WTF is that? Do you really trust a market where such things are commonplace? Anybody who owns any individual stock these days is taking a helluva risk. (More disclosure: I own some individual stocks.)The Counter ArgumentsThere are two main counter-arguments for buying Apple:One is the fact that it enjoys a low price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio, right round 10. Long story short, P/E ratios are rarely a good indicator of when to buy a stock, and do not necessarily a bargain make. A great time to have bought Apple was in October 2004, when its P/E ratio was 45.The other is that Apple has tons of cash in the bank ($137 billion or so – enough to buy every man, woman and child on the planet the new Nicki Minaj CD and a slice of pizza). Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t have ready access to most of that money, as the company is stashing it overseas for tax reasons.Sure, maybe Apple may have one last ace up its sleeve with the Apple TV, but we won’t know until it finally gets here – if it ever does.To sum up, Apple’s leadership and vision are suspect, its market share, margins and cool factor are shrinking, the stock is technically broken, and it’s over-owned and over-loved. To me, it looks bad, really bad. But I’m so bearish that I’m probably wrong already. Apple could still get to $1,000 next year. But whether it hits new heights or falls to $200, or both, expect plenty of volatility, dead cat bounces and flash crashes along the way.With that in mind, maybe the one thing I should have told my nephew before he bought his five shares Wednesday morning is this: “Nobody knows anything.” On the other hand, as it was his first stock trade, this was probably a wonderful learning opportunity for him. He now knows everything he needs to know about the stock market.Finally, please remember that everything I’ve said is provided for education and informational purposes only, without any express or implied warranty of any kind, including warranties of accuracy, completeness or fitness for any particular purpose.

Reason 4: Trees Don’t Grow All The Way To The SkyApple has enjoyed a lovely run, from $6.56 a share on April 17, 2003 to slightly more than $702.10 last September 19, an increase of – wait for it – slightly more than 107,000%. Do you think the stock is going to repeat that growth over the next 12 years? Are you crazy? Did you pass middle-school math?The company’s revenue growth has also been astounding: Apple grossed $156 billion in 2012, vs. $6.2 billion in 2003, or “only” an increase of about 25 times. If it were to repeat that performance, in 10 years Apple’s revenue would be close to the GDP of a major European nation, like the UK, France or Italy. Not likely. Reason 5: Never Catch A Falling KnifeApple was a “generational buy” last November 16th at $522 per share, according to CNBC’s Joe Terranove. I’m not sure how long a generation is – 20 years? But Apple was in the $300s just 15 months ago. Is 15 months a generation? If it was a generational buy at $525, what is it at $450? So maybe a generation is now 10 weeks?Reason 6: There’s Nothing Sadder Than A Momentum Stock That’s Lost MomentumRemember our old friends Krispy Kreme, Soda Stream, Crox, Solar Fun…? Better yet, let’s try to forget them. I’m not comparing Apple the company to those companies, but Apple the stock is all too similar.Reason 7: Apple Is Over-Owned And Over-LovedOne out of every four mutual funds owns Apple, and many have limits on how much of one individual stock they can own. Apple makes up 20% of the Nasdaq 100 (QQQ). Who’s left to buy it? Remember what happened to Sun, Microsoft, Cisco and Qualcomm – other brilliant, innovative, widely owned and loved stocks when the chickens came home to roost? To put things in perspective, Apple’s staggering loss of $70 billion in market capitalization in one day last week was only the third largest one-day drop in history – Microsoft holds first and second place, from back in the Spring of 2000. It was also a can’t-miss company that grew like crazy year after year – until it didn’t. And Microsoft stock is still only about a quarter of what it was at its peak, 12 years later.Reason 8: Technical AnalysisApple’s been carving out a textbook head-and-shoulders chart pattern for a few months now, with left and right shoulders at around $590 per share.This is a very common pattern, so common it holds true only about 50% of the time. But as Apple has become a plaything of hedge funds and algos (over 70% of trading on Wall Street is computer-based these days), it has worked perfectly with various technical analysis methods. Turns out Apple did start to fulfill the head-and-shoulders prediction last week, when it broke the neckline at $500, and according to some, is now perhaps headed to $340.  Perhaps not coincidentally, $340 is also a classic 50% Fibonacci retracement of the March 2009 to September 2012 climb from $80 to $700.Some other technical analyses to keep in mind: Apple made a “death cross” last December 10, meaning the 50-day-moving average dipped below the 200-day-moving average. The stock is now trading well below both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages. As Apple started its descent in September, the volume picked up on selling, and was light on the uptick days; those mini-rallies were probably due to short covering. This is not a pretty picture.Finally, note that the stock went vertical at $425, and is destined to return there, according to Jeffrey Gundlach, perhaps the world’s most successful bond trader. But if you look at the chart, there’s some gaps around $375, and the initial take-off was on very light volume. Hard to imagine a worse technical setup.Reason 9: The Market Was Going Up While Apple Was Going DownMost damning of all, perhaps, is the fact that the market went up the last two days of last week. Apple couldn’t even manage a dead-cat bounce on short-sellers covering their positions back up to $500, even on a fairly positive day, with good economic news. Imagine if the market in general was tanking, how bad this would be? In general, it’s a good idea to stay away from stocks that show red while everybody else is green.center_img My nephew called me the other day, the morning before Apple released it fourth quarter earnings last week, and asked me if he should buy Apple stock. His “friend,” a stock broker, said he couldn’t think of “one good reason why not to buy the stock.”I didn’t get a chance to speak with him before he pulled the trigger; My nephew got in at $510 per share or thereabouts. But if I had, I would have shared these 10 good reasons not to buy Apple stock – and they’re just as true after that post-earnings collapse.(Disclosure: I’m a long-time Apple fanboy, I currently have four MacBooks, an iMac, an iPad, 2 iPhones and I don’t know how many iPods in my house. I still think the Apple IIci is the greatest computer ever made.) Reason 1: As You May Have Heard, Steve Jobs Passed AwayAlthough most often kindly thought of by the general populace as a brilliant innovator and visionary, Jobs was also “kind of a dick” – which is, of course, the best kind of guy to run a gigantic multinational corporation. Tim Cook was a great CFO, but may not be sociopathic enough to be a great CEO – and he doesn’t emit a reality distortion field. Apple leadership also took a big hit when Cook fired Scott Forstall, Apple’s most prolific inventor. Which brings us to…Reason 2: Apple Is No Longer InnovatingRemember how crazy people went over the iPhone when it first came out? Over the iPad in 2010? Those products were “beautiful” and “revolutionary” and cool as hell. Now we’ve got the iPad Mini and the iPhone 5 – and the reaction is… not so much. As far as status symbols go, the iPhone is now sold at a discount at WalMart.Reason 3: Apple Now Has Real Smartphone CompetitionYou might disagree, and will let go of your iPhone only when somebody pries it from your cold, dead fingers. But lots of people love those Samsung phones with the big-ass screens, not to mention the Google Nexus 4 – if the Nexus supply wasn’t constrained, Apple might have sold evenfewer iPhones, and iPhone sales account for an incredible two-thirds of the company’s profit. bernard meisler Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
