60-second sales pitch

first_img== So what’s new? ==A new generation of non-hydrogenated dairy cream alternatives. This includes new formulations of our brands Mactop, Mactop Extra, GlenDelight and Foodservice GlenDelight. Previously, all dairy cream alternatives in the market used hydrogenated fats.== What’s so special about it? ==The dairy cream alternatives are free from hydrogenated fats and artificial colours. They contain less than half the fat of dairy cream when whipped.== Why should bakers buy this? ==There has been a great deal of negative press surrounding hydrogenated fats. The UK’s multiple grocers have now banned their use in the majority of own-label products.== So explain the techie stuff. ==As air is beaten into a dairy cream alternative, fat particles begin to surround the air cells and ultimately lead to a stabilisation of the foam by locking together through a process of partial coalescence. That results in a creamy texture. The challenge was finding a non-hydrogenated alternative that would not compromise on the taste, quality or functionality.== Bottom line, what’s this product worth to the baker? ==Dairy cream alternatives offer the same versatility as dairy cream, but they out-perform it in many ways. They are suitable for whipping, fillings, piping and as an ingredient in cooking. They whip up to three times their volume and remain stable with the addition of colour, flavours and alcohol. And, unopened, they have an ambient shelf-life of six months.last_img read more

IU, Ball State, Notre Dame, Purdue plan for on-campus classes this fall

first_imgCoronavirusIndianaLocalNews Pinterest Twitter Facebook By IT Communications Office (IMG_0589 – Sample Gates HD Version) [CC BY 2.0], via Wikimedia Commons (BLOOMINGTON, Ind.) — Indiana University and Ball State will resume in-person classes with the start of the fall semester in August.Both universities will bring students back on schedule in August, but will move all classes online at Thanksgiving break. I-U won’t return to campus until February 8. The university’s nine campuses will each decide whether to use that time to finish the fall semester, get started on the spring term, or design a stand-alone winter session.The two schools announced the reopening plan a day after Purdue trustees finalized a similar plan for its fall semester. Purdue and Ball State haven’t announced their plans for the spring semester.Ball State president Geoffrey Mearns says professors will be advised to design their classes so they can be converted quickly to online instruction if necessary.I-U president Michael McRobbie says it’s important to preserve the benefits of on-campus learning. He says the university will make changes to keep students safe, including converting most dorm rooms into single-student rooms. He says the university will finalize other steps closer to the start of classes, but says the plan can be expected to include masks, smaller classes, changes to food service, social distancing, and quarantining of students with symptoms.Purdue’s plan makes face masks mandatory.Notre Dame announced last week it’ll start school two weeks early so it can finish the semester before Thanksgiving. Ivy Tech plans a mix of in-person and online classes.Governor Holcomb says university leaders have been innovative and thoughtful in assessing the situation to make safety-conscious decisions. He says the state will also make safety a priority, but won’t have a one-size-fits-all plan for every school.

7 Ways To Not Be A Dick At Electric Forest

first_imgHere we are again–it’s the week of Electric Forest and the anticipation is growing by the minute as the clock ticks closer to one of the best festivals of the year! While I’m excited to see my Forest Family once again, what I’m not looking forward to is the finger pointing and complaining after the fest when one or a few fans of one artist clash with fans of another artist. We all know how the story goes. We’ve all seen videos and heard stories when fan bases have disagreements. So let’s flip the script and make this the year where everyone gets along and has nothing but amazing memories from the most magical place on Earth.Here’s a simple little checklist to ensure that everybody is happy all weekend!1. Share the space. Electric Forest belongs to all of us and most of us travel pretty far to see the sets from artists that we love. If you want to be front row for an act, but another fan also wants to be front row for theirs, share the space!! Most people are willing to trade spots, and it allows you to go get some food and hit the bathroom. It’s a win-win!2. Don’t be disrespectful. Although this seems like common sense at a festival, it astounds me how people can actually be rude in such a loving environment. Be mindful of your actions. Don’t be the person that everyone is talking about on the internet for months after the event.3. Sit down in the back. Again, this seems like common sense to most music fans, but if you want to sit down during a set, do so in the back or near the soundboard. Festivals can be exhausting, but don’t make other people upset because you need a break. Sitting between sets is perfectly fine of course, but do not sit with your back to an act while they are playing. That’s a huge No-No. People will take it the wrong way entirely, trust me.4. Show love to all acts. Hey, you may not be the biggest fan of an act, but that doesn’t give anyone the right to “Boo” them. Leave those bad vibes at home. There are multiple acts playing on multiple stages all weekend, you do not need to be at a show that you don’t like, so don’t! Go see something else, or get lost in the forest for a while! There will be space for you when you get back.5. Keep totems to the side and back. There is quite possibly nothing worse at a festival than a huge totem right in the front row blocking the view for everyone else in the crowd. Totems are great for keeping friends together and expressing yourself in a creative way, but they aren’t great for making new friends during a set. If you are going to be with a crew that needs a totem, please don’t camp in the front and ruin the show for others.6. Be polite in the crowd. We’ve all seen it before. That one person that has too much to drink and plows through a crowd with no sense of manners whatsoever. Don’t be that person. Be polite going through a crowd. Say excuse me and thank you. Don’t act like you own the place. Politeness really does go a long way, sometimes all the way to the front. Oh, and if you want to be near the front, don’t make a mad dash while an act is already playing, that just causes a headache for everyone involved. There is plenty of time in between sets to get your spot! Don’t show up late and expect to get prime real estate!7. Clean up after yourself! Trash is always an issue when thousands of people come together to celebrate. Please be mindful and leave no trace, both inside the festival, and out in the campgrounds. You may see groups of people cleaning up after sets throughout the weekend and they will be welcoming to another set of helping hands. Don’t be shy! Electric Forest also has an Electricology program that rewards you for helping to keep the festival clean! To participate and potentially win tickets for life, head here!-Adam Straughn[Cover photo via Faces of Festivals]last_img read more

China slams Britain’s comments on Uighurs as ‘slander’

first_imgChina hit back on Monday at comments by Britain’s foreign secretary that accused Beijing of “gross” human rights abuses against ethnic and religious minorities in the northwest region of Xinjiang.Rights groups and experts estimate that more than one million ethnic Uighurs and other mostly Muslim minorities have been rounded up into a network of internment camps, which China says are facilities for job-training and to steer people away from extremism.British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab told the BBC on Sunday that it was “clear that there are gross, egregious human rights abuses going on… it is deeply, deeply troubling.”  Exiled Uighurs this month called for the International Criminal Court in the Hague to investigate China for genocide and crimes against humanity, filing a huge dossier accusing China of rights abuses including forcibly sterilizing women. Tensions between London and China have soared over a number of topics.Britain recently bowed to sustained pressure from Washington and ordered the phased removal of Chinese telecoms giant Huawei from its 5G network despite warnings of retaliation from Beijing.The two sides have also clashed over China’s imposition of a controversial national security law in Hong Kong — including offering a possible route to UK citizenship for some Hong Kong residents. But foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin called the comments “nothing but rumors and slander”.”The Xinjiang issue is not about human rights, religions or ethnic groups at all, but about combating violence, terrorism and separatism,” he told reporters Monday at a regular press briefing.Raab said reports of forced sterilizations and mass detentions in Xinjiang required international attention, and that Britain “cannot see behavior like that and not call it out”.But Wang said the forced-sterilization reports were “complete nonsense”, and that the Uighur population had more than doubled in the past four decades. center_img Topics :last_img read more

‘I wanted to kill him’: Ranieri rages at Kamara in penalty row

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Fulham boss Claudio Ranieri admitted he felt like “killing” Aboubakar Kamara after the French striker ignored instructions and took the missed penalty that almost cost the London side victory against Huddersfield on Saturday.Fulham secured a 1-0 win against their Premier League relegation rivals when Aleksandar Mitrovic scored in stoppage time.Minutes earlier, however, usual penalty taker Mitrovic had seen Kamara’s tame effort from the spot saved by Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl with the scores level at 0-0. “The man who should shoot the penalty is Mitrovic, and Kamara did not respect me, the club, the team-mates, the crowd, anybody,” said Ranieri.“He take the ball and want to shoot the ball, it is unbelievable. I want to kill him.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Saints open exhibition season with weekend split against Trail Smokies

first_img“We didn’t start the game the way any team would want to,” said Saints new head coach Alex Evin.“We had slow feet in our zone and didn’t compete our hardest to win any puck battles, especially when we had numbers. However, we have to give Trail credit because they played with a lot of intensity, which complemented their speed and skill very well.“Our goaltenders Mike Vlanich and James Prigione kept the game within reach with some huge saves throughout the game and it allowed us to claw back and make a game of it in the second half.”Midway through the second overtime period that included back-and-forth three on three action, the Smokies persistence paid off when Martin tallied his second of the night off a beautiful feed from Zane Shartz. Both teams traded multiple scoring chances that included a penalty shot save by 16-year-old Smokies’ netminder Solomon Burk who came into the game in the third period to make his Junior A debut.Both teams introduced each other during an epic battle Friday night at the Castlegar Community Complex. A crowd of more than 400 was treated to a fast paced game from beginning to end, including big hits and great goals. Selkirk earned a hard fought 7-4 victory increasing their impressive home unbeaten streak to 30 games.Newcomer Ryan Edwards led the way for the Saints with a hat trick while Ryan Henderson, Tylor Branzsen, Darnell Dyck and Thomas Hardy added singles. Scoring for the Smoke Eaters was Zuccarini (2), Ryan Swanson and Keenan Scott. The Saints goaltending duties were shared by Prigione and Steven Glass.“I hope everyone in attendance enjoyed these hockey games,” said Evin.“They were intense and fast. Both had exciting finishes and both teams respect one another. We wish the Smokies a great season and will support them any way we can.”SAINTS NOTES:The Saints lost second year defenseman Ryan Procyshyn to a broken ankle suffered in Saturday’s loss…. The next exhibition games for the Saints include a rematch of the BCIHL Championship final when they host Trinity Western University at the Cominco Arena on Friday, September 19 at 7:00 p.m. … Grant MacEwan University from the Alberta College Athletic Conference then visits the Saints September 27 at 7:00 p.m. and September 28 at 11:00 a.m. at Castlegar Community Complex… Selkirk will start the BCIHL season on the road the first two weekends in October after which they will commemorate their second straight BCIHL Championship with a banner raising ceremony at the October 17 home opener. The Selkirk Saints Men’s Hockey Team opened the exhibition season with a pair of hard fought and exciting games against the Trail Smoke Eaters in a showcase that provided a taste of what’s to come for the 2014-15 campaign.The inter-league set matched the two-time defending British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) champions against the region’s only British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) squad. The outcome was two intense games that tested the early season talents on both clubs.Saturday night was a fitting finish to a great weekend of hockey as the Smokies triumphed over the Saints with a 5-4 double overtime victory at the Cominco Arena. A quick pace and end-to-end action in the third and overtime periods made up for the mediocre first and second frames.The Smoke Eaters came out with a vengeance and controlled play in the earlygoing earning 1-0 and 3-1 leads in each of the first two periods.Craig Zuccarini, Craig Martin and Dallas Calvin potted goals for the home team while Jackson Garrett notched a goal for Selkirk.The Saints came alive in the third, scoring three times on goals from Matt Martin and Mason Spear (2).
