ONS figures reveal changing face of UK baking industry

first_imgNew data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has revealed a 2.3% decline in the number of bakery manufacturers over the last year, while the number of bakery retailers grew slightly.The data shows there were 2,885 bakery retail businesses (eg, Greggs counts as one business) in the UK in 2007, up five on the year before, operating a total of 6,515 units, up 1.7% from 6,405 in 2006. The number of bakery manufacturers (wholesale and industrial) fell from 1,740 to 1,700.The figures, gathered on March 17, 2007, and published this month, give details of turnover and location of all UK companies by their VAT classifications.They indicate that the average bakery retailer is based in the north-west, employs under five staff, is over 10 years old and turns over between £100,000 and £249,000.For example, the data shows there are 835 bakery shops in the north-west, 700 in London and 735 in Scotland. More than half of the 2,885 bakery retail businesses, some 1,465, employ four or less staff.The new figures also show a rise in the number of mills over the year, with 115 companies operating 185 mills (of all types) in 2007, compared to 170 mills in 2006, which were operated by 105 companies.The coded data, available from the ONS’s Inter-Departmental Business Register, shows that within the bakery manufacturing industry there were 1,515 manufacturers of bread, fresh pastry and cakes in the UK in 2007, down 35 on 2006.The ONS also lists 195 manufacturers of rusks and biscuits, preserved pastry goods and cakes (a separate category) up from 190 in 2006. Therefore, the overall tally for bakery manufacturers in 2007 is 1,700.last_img read more

Social Justice Spotlight

first_imgKip Tiernan BI ’89, founder of Rosie’s Place and the Greater Boston Food Bank and co-founder of Community Works and the Poor People’s United Fund, gave her papers to the Schlesinger Library in 2006 so that scholars and citizens can learn more about how and why she pursued her passion for social justice. That was just one part of a special connection forged between the social justice pioneer and the Radcliffe Institute library.When she died in 2011, at 85, it was important that her commitment to the downtrodden and disenfranchised live on. One way her legacy continues at Harvard is through the event that took place yesterday hosted by the Schlesinger Library and Community Works, a cooperative of 34 local grassroots organizations devoted to social and economic justice.The executive director of Community Works, Fran Froelich, worked with Tiernan for years to pursue community-based solutions to entrenched challenges, including homelessness, hunger, and violence. She spoke about Tiernan at the event, saying “She told the truth—held it up—and invited us to join her in searching for solutions.”To honor Tiernan’s pursuit of truth and her commitment to improving the quality of life for all people, Froelich presented the organization’s Striving for Justice Award to David Hemenway AB ’66, PhD ’74, professor of health policy at the Harvard School of Public Health. The award was given in recognition of his efforts to understand and prevent injury and violence as director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center and the Harvard Youth Violence Prevention Center and as the author of many books, including While We Were Sleeping: Success Stories in Injury and Violence Prevention (University of California Press, 2009).Hemenway, who was honored to accept the award, shared some insights into his work collecting data about homicide and suicides, and how he and his colleagues are learning more about violence and its causes as they analyze the information. His remarks—which included insights into soda drinking, accidental poisonings, and gun ownership—illustrated what Froelich said in her introduction: “David’s field of public health has deep moral connections to broader questions of social justice, poverty, and systematic disadvantage.”His remarks were followed by a discussion with young people searching for solutions to youth violence and active in Alternatives for Community and Environment and the Hawthorne Youth and Community Center, two organizations that are part of Community Works.The combination of statistics and the stories was a fitting testament to Kip Tiernan’s commitment to highlighting the power of experts and community groups to raise awareness, tackle difficult issues, make a meaningful difference, and inspire others. The event was also an opportunity to remind people about the mission of Community Works, its participation in the Harvard Community Gifts campaign, and access to Tiernan’s papers at the Schlesinger Library.last_img read more

Saint Mary’s Biology Club to host trivia night

first_imgThe Saint Mary’s Biology Club is hosting a trivia night Thursday to test the community’s knowledge on a variety of topics, from the history of the College to general science questions, in the Science Hall at 7 p.m.The event is open to participation from all majors as an effort to act as a unifying event for students, Biology Club vice president and senior Nicole Nemeth said via email. “We all hope that students will come and enjoy the fellowship of other Belles while having fun and showing off their trivia skills,” Nemeth said. Biology Club member and senior Allison Sweeney said she is most looking forward to seeing the evening’s turnout because of the club’s efforts to make the event feel welcoming to all. “I am most excited to see how many people come to the event and how everyone reacts to the questions that we put so much time into creating,” Sweeney said via email. “We wanted to make it fun for everyone of all majors.” Nemeth, along with the rest of the Biology Club executive board, came up with questions that they felt would both present a challenge to students but also be knowledge accessible to the entire community, not just those studying the sciences, she said. “We all enjoyed creating categories and questions,” Nemeth said. “Some of the questions are challenging and fun and we enjoyed putting them together.”Nemeth said the club sees the event as an opportunity to market themselves to all students, inviting the involvement of students from a variety of backgrounds and a variety of majors. The Biology Club has hosted multiple events this year to draw in students that come from non-science backgrounds. “This event will benefit the [Biology] Club by promoting our club to all students as an organization that is fun and inclusive,” Nemeth said. “We try to create events such as this that are not only science-based so as to reach out to everyone and truly show the campus what our club is about.”Nemeth said the club hopes to continue the trend of including all students. She also said the club plans to offer events with similar goals in the future. “We hope that in the future, the Biology Club will be able to continue to host similar events,” Nemeth said. “As a club, we try to plan a social event once a month, open to anyone that wishes to attend, so in the future other similar events would definitely be a possibility.”Sweeney added that the winner of the trivia night will receive a free graduate school exam preparation course, aiding them in their future application process. “We are also giving away a free Kaplan course at the trivia night, so any [Saint Mary’s] student will be able to win a free course to help them prepare for graduate school applications,” Sweeney said.

Cambiasso, Bergomi Slam Osimhen for Changing Agent

first_imgDuro Ikhazuagbe with agency reportEven as Napoli fans are anxiously waiting for the arrival of Nigeria and Lille player, Victor Osimhen, Real Madrid midfielder, Esteban Cambiasso, and Inter Milan legend, Giuseppe Bergomi, have questioned the decision of the Super Eagles forward to switch agent during negotiations with the Naples-based club.Osimhen who visited the Serie A club with his agent in the middle of the negotiation to meet with the club Owner, Aurelio de Laurentiis and Manager Gennaro Gattuso, was reported to have severed relations with his French agent, Jean-Gérard Benoît Czajka, for reasons not too clear. Victor Osimhen Czajka who is the founder of Matching SporInternationalwas alleged to be negotiated bonuses for himself during contract talks with Napoli.This is believed to have prompted Osimhen to switch to controversial agent William D’Avila, who has close ties with several Super Eagles players.In a chat with Sky Calcio Club broadcast (via Area Napoli), Cambiasso was reported to have said : “If I too have changed as many agents as Victor Osimhen did, complicating a negotiation like the one with Napoli?“Honestly not. I had my father, I trusted him; then my brother managed me. These things, in short , I did not do them.“It is also true, however, that football has changed in some respects over the years,” observed the former Madrid Star.Similarly, Italy’s 1982 World Cup-winning defender, Bergomi added : “I have never behaved this way either. I, however, went to talk to the club alone or, at best, with my mother.“That’s right: once my mother came with me and, seeing that I wanted to raise the requests for engagement, she said to me: ‘Beppe, leave it alone: take what they have offered you, it’s good money.”D’Avila, Osimhen’s new agent handles the affairs of players like; Oghenekaro Etebo, Emmanuel Dennis, Henry Onyekuru and Anderson Esiti.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

After sweep by Ohio State, SU aims to sure up fundamentals

first_img Published on November 3, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Following consecutive losses against Ohio State last weekend, the Syracuse ice hockey team is now faced with its first real adversity of the season and its fair share of work. But on a team with 10 rotating freshmen and 11 new players, adversity is a good thing. It’s a learning experience. And before the schedule begins to creep into conference play, the coaching staff is working to get through that adversity to restore the little things that make the team effective. ‘Not to say that they’re confused,’ associate coach Graham Thomas said. ‘But the game happens so fast, and you have to worry about playing on instincts and making quick decisions. Sometimes I think there’s too much going on in their heads, and they’re not playing on instincts. Thinking too much instead of reacting and playing.’ This week, Syracuse has replaced full-squad practices with individual workouts, stressing fundamentals, skill breakdowns and a reiteration of roles in the team’s system. At 4-4-1, SU has completed just over a quarter of its 34-game season. The Orange had a frustrating weekend against Ohio State, cluttered with unlucky bounces and poor execution against the Buckeyes. While losing 4-2 last Saturday, SU was outshooting OSU by more than 20. Syracuse is doing what it can to take control of future momentum swings, as plainly as possible.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text And that can’t start halfway through its next second period. It has to start in practice. ‘What we’re really focusing on right now is that we don’t want to get too caught up and too carried away with what the other team is doing,’ Thomas said. ”Consistency in preparation’ is a term that we’ve been using with our players. I think that starts with focusing a lot about what we’re going to do to be successful and not worrying too much about them.’ Syracuse will meet Clarkson twice in a home-and-home series over the next two weekends, beginning at the Tennity Ice Skating Pavilion Friday. The Knights, who have been 3-2-1 since mid-October, own a 3-6-1 overall record and are taking a break from their own conference play to meet the Orange. Clarkson has 11 juniors and seniors with a senior goaltender. Syracuse has just eight upperclassmen, with freshman goalies seeing most of the work. Coaches stress preparation because this is a point in which the season can start to move very quickly for a young player. ‘I think together, it’s a good group,’ head coach Paul Flanagan said of his new group. ‘They’re outnumbered, of course. There are just three seniors with so many freshmen and sophomores. If anything, that’s the tough part of it. It’s their first few months away from home, in a strange environment, all these freedoms as individuals and all this work they have to do. There’s a lot going on.’ Early on, Syracuse was hanging with nationally ranked opponents and toppling lesser ones. Perhaps Ohio State was worth all the hype and Syracuse will have to lick its wounds and get up off the deck. But either way, this young Syracuse team and program will have to grow up fast. And for SU’s players, that means getting back to the basic skills that got them to this point. SU players won’t exactly know how good the opponent will be until they go over the game film on Thursday, and maybe even until they hit the ice on Friday. But in a sense, that’s not too important right now. If Syracuse is going to get its work done on Friday, it will be because its players are able to focus on themselves and not their opponents. ‘I wouldn’t say that we’re over-preparing, but what we need to do is simplify our approach. Keep it more streamlined,’ Thomas said. ‘More simple. More about what we have to do to execute to be successful on our end.’ [email protected]center_img Commentslast_img read more
