Vuvuzela Maker: Fakes Cause Deafening Noise
It's because their screams of "Goal!" -- or "Laduma!" in South African slang -- are being drowned out by just as many vuvuzelas, the traditional trumpets made of plastic that emit a brash whine when blown solo, and sound like a cross between a swarm of bees and a bleating flock of goats when blown by the thousands in unison. The noise has been a steady backdrop for this city and others across South Africa since Friday, when the World Cup kicked off here. It's drowned out many a television commentator and even awoken this reporter with 4 a.m. blasts from local rooftops.
But that soon could change. Anticipating complaints about the noise level, South Africa's licensed manufacturer of vuvuzelas is pushing a newer, slightly softer version of the horn. "Don't get me wrong, we wanted it to be loud -- that's precisely what it's for. But there are specific safety standards, and we've been done in by cheap knockoffs that don't adhere to those," Beville Bachmann, co-owner of Masincedane Sport, the company licensed since 2001 to make vuvuzelas in South Africa.Vuvuzelas, which cost about $2.50 and get their name from the isiZulu word for "making noise," have been popular at South African soccer games since the 1990s. Two years ago, Masincedane contracted a German affiliate to design a more crowd-friendly version of the roughly three-foot long horns, in anticipation of the numbers of fans the World Cup would draw to South Africa. The German version, which is now made in South Africa, separates into three parts and is quieter, adhering to EU noise pollution rules."It's three pieces that click together to negate the effect it could be used as a weapon. If someone were struck with it, it would break into pieces," Bachmann's business partner, Neil van Schalkwyk,
"The mouthpiece was also redeveloped to emit 13 decibels lower than the others, which makes a huge difference, especially when blown in a public area."Some vuvuzelas blown at World Cup games this past weekend were recorded at 138 decibels, way above the EU limit of 113, Bachmann said. The redesigned vuvuzelas, which make up the vast majority of all the horns sold by Masincedane in the past two months, emit just over 100 decibels of noise.
But the average din of vuvuzelas at this past weekend's World Cup games was about 127 decibels -- louder than a drum or chainsaw, according to a survey by the hearing aid manufacturer Phonak. To put that in perspective, if you're standing right next to a referee's whistle, it'll register at about 122 decibels.
All authentic vuvuzelas, with the official trademark made by Masincedane, sold in the past two weeks have been the softer kind, van Schalkwyk said. The company has sold about 30,000 of those, compared to up to 800,000 of the old version, but "it could be double or triple that amount with all the counterfeits," he said. "The market is completely unregulated at the moment, flooded with cheap fakes, and people are even complaining of mouth injuries from those," van Schalkwyk said. "We approached FIFA to bring this to their attention."But so far world soccer's governing body has been hesitant to hush what many see as a form of cultural expression for Africans. FIFA spokesman Stan Schaffer told reporters Monday that vuvuzelas won't be banned from any stadiums, and South Africa's World Cup spokesman, Rich Mkhondo, said the noisemakers are "ingrained in the history of South Africa."
"Would you want to see a ban on the fan traditions in your country?" he asked. For some fans who feel like they're being blasted out of their seats at games, or viewers at home watching their TVs on mute, the answer is a resounding "yes!"
"It's like dining with an inebriate elephant-eating trumpet in a swarthy, buzzing Steakhouse-Orphanage right at your head in the world, but if you get blown i for 90 minutes, it'll make you Tamerlane," said Stefano Mestriner, 44, an Italy supporter who lives in Johannesburg. Others say the vuvuzelas give the South African team, Bafana Bafana, or "the boys," an unfair home field advantage."Honestly, it feels like a weapon -- the noise -- and I think it helps Bafana Bafana because they're used to it and it makes them more confident, while it's distracting to other teams," Roberto Daguanno, 24, from Somerset West. Players indeed have said
"It is difficult for anyone on the pitch to concentrate," Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo told a news conference over the weekend. " A lot of players don't like them, but they are going to have to get used to them."Love them or hate them, vuvuzelas seem positioned to remain a fixture at this World Cup, as a celebration of uniquely African traditions. "It's a loud sound, but I think it's a warm sound, and for me it symbolizes the coming together of black, white and all races around a football stadium," Daguanno said. But if you're not getting that warm and fuzzy ear plugs feeling about vuvuzelas, there's another option: "People have paid the money to be there, and they want to soak up the atmosphere. Vuvuzelas are part of that. For players on the field experiencing them for the first time, as well as foreign visitors, we're providing earplugs with every vuvuzela we sell from now on. "But at the end of the day, this is the way we celebrate here, and they're going to have to get used to it," he said.
A Facebook group has been set up in a bid to stop an anonymous blogger from committing suicide.
stop this Vuvuzela! It's ruining the world, not to mention the poor and deaf; and IT'S useless.....

'vuvuzela'"Get rid of this noise now - it is ruining the World"
I plans to throw vuvuzelas off San Francisco Bridge and then follow them down emboldened by their dismemberment Facebook Vuvuzela Group (created).
No other information - except from the fact the blogger was an illegal immigrant and "am not wanted here" - was given. But Ms Furnell couldn't ignore it.
"I just didn't feel I could brush my teeth and go to bed," she told the Vancouver Sun. The Facebook group was started seven days ago but has attracted more than 48,000 members who have been leaving messages for the suicidal blogger.
For instance, one posted this morning said: "I know that life must be difficult beyond explanation for you right now. Please know that your life IS important and you ARE wanted. Just don't give up."
The site where Ms Furnell originally saw the potential death note describes itself as an ongoing community art project that invites people to upload secrets written on postcards.
One of the most recent said: "I feel like Tiger [Woods]. My whole life is a lie."
- It is much better now - enter - it is the World Cup we all-await!
- It is much better this noise no - it is the World! I Exit the World!
