20 April 2012 “2012 will be one of the highlights of my career as I aim for qualification at the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, and I would like to thank Time and its readers for their support on my journey.” Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material ‘Global inspiration’ “They’re scientists, they’re thinkers, they’re philosophers, they’re leaders, they’re icons, they’re artists, they’re visionaries – people who are using their ideas, their visions, their actions to transform the world and have an effect on a multitude of people.” This year’s Time article says of the people on the list: “They are the people who inspire us, entertain us, challenge us, and change our world.” History maker “The Blade Runner” is listed in a section titled “Icons” in the Time Magazine list. Time managing editor Richard Stengel has said of the list, now in its ninth year: “The Time 100 is not a list of the most powerful people in the world, it’s not a list of the smartest people in the world, it’s a list of the most influential people in the world. South African athlete Oscar Pistorius, the first amputee to win a medal at an able-bodied World Championship, has been named in Time Magazine’s latest list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Time sports columnist Sean Gregory writes of him: “What’s possible in athletics? Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee sprinter from South Africa, and his effort to compete against able-bodied runners in the 400m and 4x400m sprint events at the 2012 London Olympics, make the answer clear: absolutely anything. Pistorius said on his website: “There are some incredible names on the list from around the world, including political figures and music and film heroes, and it is a great privilege for me to have been included amongst such names. Pistorius made history at the IAAF World Championships in 2011 when he became the first amputee to win a track medal in the 4 by 400 metres relay. He has since run inside the required A-qualifying standard for the Olympic Games, but needs to achieve that mark once more to secure his place at London 2012. In February, his achievements were recognised by the Laureus Sports Awards when he received the Laureus World Sportsperson with a Disability Award.

In an interview with Om Malik, Mozilla CEO John Lilly also said that Mozilla has fallen behind in the mobile space, as WebKit-based browsers like Safari on the iPhone currently have a large lead, but he is confident that Mozilla can deliver a better browsing experience. Mozilla, according to Lilly, wanted to wait for devices to get to the point where they could handle everything a desktop browser could. Mozilla, however, isn’t likely to develop a mobile version of Firefox for BlackBerry anytime soon. Fennec, the mobile version of Firefox, which was announced in April 2008, reached its beta earlier this year. At that time, Mozilla was looking into OEM deals with Nokia, Windows Mobile and Symbian. At that time, it was unclear if Mozilla was going to develop a version of Fennec for Android and the browser was only available for the Nokia 810. Since then, the mobile browser market has shifted once again and now Maemo and Android are the prime targets for Fennec. In the mobile market, Fennec goes up against Opera Mobile and Skyfire, which are available on a wide variety of platforms. The most important competitor, however, is probably Safari, though Apple only makes its browser available on its own phones. Safari may not be available on a large number of different phones, but it has set the bar pretty high when it comes to the user experience that users now expect from a mobile browser. With the Awesome bar and Weave bookmark synchronization, Firefox, however, will offer a number of features that Safari doesn’t currently offer. Fennec will also offer support for plugins. Om Malik looked at an early version of Fennec on the Nokia N900 and thinks that the browser “is perhaps its single biggest standout feature” on the device.Mozilla on the iPhoneEarlier last week, a number of rumors about a Mozilla app for the iPhone also started to make the rounds, though it remains unclear what this app would look like. Apple, after all, isn’t likely to allow a full Firefox-based browser on the iPhone.

His emotional intelligence; to be able to handle everything.”He needs to continue to show he can handle it, and that his performances continue to improve. He’s obviously playing for a great club, his manager’s got confidence in him, everything is there – but we’ve got a big responsibility to help him.”
