In Brief

first_imgAsda’s new “hot cross hedgehog” loaf is the “best product it has ever put out”, according to bakery director Huw Edwards. The new 400g spicy bloomer loaf, priced at 92p, has a ripple effect from cuts on the top. Bakery equipment company Capway Systems has started marketing Rijkaart NV products in the UK, after taking over the Dutch dough-processing equipment firm last year. The acquisition gives Capway the capability to supply complete production lines.A NEW report from market analyst Datamonitor reveals the UK is Europe’s biggest user of own-label goods, with pene-tration rate exceeding 35% of total consumer packaged goods spending. Consumer spending on private-label food, drinks and personal care reached £39 billion in 2005, and Datamonitor forecasts this will increase a further 25%, to £48.7bn in 2010. Kroll, administrator of snacks company Golden Wonder, is in negotiations with three separate parties as it seeks to sell the firm’s remaining operations, including brands such as Nik Naks.

Dave Matthews Band Covers Prince In A Set Of Classics On Night Two Of The Gorge

first_imgDave Matthews Band returned to The Gorge Amphitheatre last night for the second night of their annual three-night stand at the storied venue. The band has announced that they’ll be taking an extended hiatus following this run, giving the weekend an extra feeling of importance for fans and band alike. There’s no telling when DMB will return to the stage, so this weekend is a huge celebration of the band’s deep catalog. Night one featured fan-favorites like “The Song That Jane Likes”, “Warehouse”, “Dancing Nancies”, and “Grey Street” (among others), and night two featured more of the same, with a funky Prince cover thrown in and another appearance by Brazilian brass legend Carlos Malta.The band opened up with “Squirm”, before really getting the set started with a pair of beloved tracks in “One Sweet World” and “Granny”. The beginning of the set also featured “When the World Ends”, “Funny the Way It Is”, and a standout “Crush” before the band segued into “Bartender” and invited Malta out for his first tune of the evening. “Bartender” was only played one other time in 2016, so the song was truly appreciated by the DMB faithful who trekked out to The Gorge. Malta would join the band on “Cry Freedom”, Dave Matthews solo track “Gravedigger”, and “Jimi Thing” throughout the course of the evening, adding his signature sound to DMB’s well-oiled machine.After “Jimi Thing”, DMB performed a super-funky cover of “Sexy MF” by Prince that really got the crowd moving, before the band brought their set to a close with “Pantala Naga Pampa” > “Rapunzel”. The band returned to the stage for an extended, three-song encore of “Sister”, “Two Step”, and “Halloween” that put a cap on an excellent evening.Check out the full setlist below, courtesy of Dave Matthews Band have one more show at The Gorge tonight before beginning their extended hiatus on Monday.

Governor Wolf Statement on Capitol Rally to Protect Women’s Health Services

first_imgGovernor Wolf Statement on Capitol Rally to Protect Women’s Health Services SHARE Email Facebook Twitter April 18, 2017center_img Healthcare,  Press Release,  Public Health,  Statement,  Women’s Rights Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement in advance of today’s rally on the Capitol steps in support of women’s health care access:“The attacks on women’s health at both the federal and state level are nothing more than politicians inserting themselves between doctors and their patients. I thank the many women and men who have stood up are taking a stand against these efforts, including those rallying at the Capitol today. The attacks on women’s reproductive health care and organizations like Planned Parenthood put women, especially in rural and underserved communities, at risk of having extremely limited access to essential health services. Federal and state politicians should be focused on fixing our schools, getting people back to work, and solving the opioid and heroin crisis, not making it harder for women to access critical health and wellness services. I will veto any measure, including Senate Bills 3 and 300, that seeks to prevent women from accessing health care services or providers that they or their doctor deem appropriate for their own health.”last_img read more

W. Visayas retains ASF-free status

first_imgThis province continues to regulate the movement of pork and pork products to protect the hog industries and localities free from the virus. These pigs are being raised in a farm. All the provinces in Western Visayas remain free from African swine fever, according to the Department of Agriculture. BUSINESSWORLD Regions declared free-zones or clear zones can send their live pigs, hog carcasses, pork and pork byproducts anywhere in the country. The National Zoning and Movement Plan in DA Circular No. 12, series of 2019 categorized the provinces and cities in the country into “free zone” and “contaminated zone” to indicate the levels of ASF. The Office of Provincial Veterinarian said the public should be vigilant and responsible about safeguarding Aklan’s swine industry against ASF.(With a report from Akean Forum/PN) To recall, Gov. Florencio Miraflores issued Executive Orders No. 46 and 60 last year along with Memorandum Order No. 31 earlier this year to ban the entry of live swine, products and by products from Luzon and other ASF-affected places in Mindanao. ASF is a highly contagious hemorrhagic viral disease that spreads rapidly in pigs. Since there is no known vaccine against it yet – sick pigs die in two to 10 days – ASF is destructive to the swine industry.last_img read more
