Nutty Tarts expands business with Waitrose

first_imgCambridgeshire bakery Nutty Tarts is increasing its distribution to Waitrose stores and is planning to expand into London.The business currently supplies around 40 sites, including 23 Waitrose outlets, in the area, as well as the Andaz Hotel in Liverpool Street, London.Nutty Tarts met with Waitrose representatives earlier this month to discuss rolling its products out across more stores nationally. “The meeting went really well, so we are going to crack on with that,” said managing director Deborah Armiger. “We need to change a couple of products so they are suitable for the national market rather than the regional. This will involve possibly taking out some of the shorter shelf-life products as we will be going for national distribution into Waitrose’s distribution centre and products will need a good shelf-life.”We will be working on that in the next couple of months and some products are already in manufacturing.” The companies are in discussion to see how many more sites the products will go into.London focus“We also want to focus on increasing our business in London,” said Armiger.The company launched individually-wrapped products last month in its Essence range, comprising carrot cake, cherry and almond cake, spicy sultana slice, Black Forest cake, and toffee, walnut and date cake. The range has opened the way to target establishments from hotels and shops to universities and schools.“We are passionate about baking in small batches as we are not mass producers. We have the distribution process in place and supply universities, coffee shops and food supply companies, as well as posting to consumers.Nutty Tarts is also extending its gluten-free range by demand, which currently includes a chocolate brownie and a lemon drizzle cake, which is also dairy-free.last_img read more

Peace Corps veteran reflects on time in Thailand

first_imgIn 1961, the senior class of St. Francis Xavier University sat in their gaps and gowns and listened to President John F. Kennedy state he was going to start an organization that would send young volunteers overseas to help other people.  Roger Parent, author of the newly released “The Making of a Peace Corps Volunteer: From Maine to Thailand”, was among the graduates that day, and said he was incredibly struck by President Kennedy’s new proposal. On Thursday, Parent held a book-signing in the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore to promote his new book.  “I thought to myself, ‘Hey, I want to do that,’” Parent said. “So I wrote President Kennedy a letter right away and I said I want to be a part of this thing that you have started. Well, lo and behold, six months later I was invited to be a part of the Peace Corps in Thailand.”  Parent said he was a part of the first group of Peace Corps volunteers who were sent to Thailand in 1961. The group volunteered until 1963, he said.  Parent said is originally from French-Speaking Lille, Maine where he learned English as a second language.  “They probably thought that [attending college] in a foreign country would be an asset,” Parent said. “But what I don’t think they understood is that I grew up a couple thousand yards from the Canadian boarder.”  While in Thailand, Parent said he taught locals about carpentry and the English language.   “I was teaching Thai people to speak English with a French accent,” he said.  When his services ended in 1963, Parent said he explored options for Peace Corps returnees in the states.  “[The Peace Corps] is what brought me to the University of Notre Dame,” Parent said. “Father Ted Hesburgh had a Return Peace Corps Scholarship and since I was one of the first Peace Corps volunteers to go to the Peace Corps and get out, it had to go to somebody.”  Parent used his scholarship to receive a master of education degree from Notre Dame in 1967. After receiving his degree, Parent said he and his family decided to stay in South Bend, where he served as a city councilman from 1972 to 1979 and served as mayor from 1980 to 1987.  “It turned out South Bend was a great place for me”, said Parent. “I got accepted in the community really early here … I joke that I thought I would live on the east coast or the west coast and ended up living on the west coast of Lake Michigan.” Parent said his experience serving as a Peace Corps volunteer helped him to become a better politician. “In the Peace Corps I had to put myself in someone else’s shoes … when I got elected mayor I had some experience doing that,” Parent said. “As a politician you always have to try to figure out what people are thinking.” Overall, Parent said the Peace Corps taught him much about life and he said he would recommend it to anyone.  “We are never called ‘former Peace Corps Volunteers.’ Once a Peace Corps Volunteer always a Peace Corps Volunteer,” Parent said.

Students urge senators to vote no on Brett Kavanaugh nomination in call-in event

first_imgBefore the United States Senate voted Saturday to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, student activists gathered at Geddes Hall on Friday to call swing-state senators and convince them to vote “no” to Kavanaugh’s nomination.Junior Emilia McManus said the #cancelKavanaugh event was initiated by a group of students with no formal affiliations who simply felt the urge to come together and organize a call-in.“For the most part we stand for Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford, but at the same time we welcome students who have different viewpoints under the circumstances,” McManus said. “Putting someone in a position of immense power like Brett Kavanaugh is something we have to take very seriously. … It’s important we consider [the facts] and contact our senators to do our civic duty.”McManus said it is unfortunate how strongly the polarization of the country is contributing to the nomination process.“This is an appointment for life,” McManus said. “… The position of the Supreme Court justice is not supposed to be based on political affiliation, it’s supposed to be based on choosing a person who can fairly interpret the Constitution.”McManus said both testimonies were emotional experiences and, at times difficult, to watch. She said she still felt the testimonies were essential to watch in order to be as informed as possible.Junior Elizabeth Boyle — who also helped organize the event — said she was amazed by Ford’s bravery after watching and listening to her testimony.“I remember watching Dr. Ford’s testimony and just getting absolute chills,” Boyle said. “Seeing her put herself and her story out there in order to better the lives of other survivors is absolutely incredible. … The disconnect and the dichotomy between the calming, brave nature of Dr. Ford and the often scattered, angry temperament of Judge Kavanaugh really stuck out.”Senior Olivia De Sonne Ammaccapane said she called over a hundred people on Friday, urging them to call their senators.  “I think its really important that we start believing sexual assault survivors,” she said. “There’s such a tiny percentage of people who go through the trouble of accusing someone already and we need to believe them.”McManus said regardless of a student’s motivations, she wanted people to understand they can take action. The event as not just targeted to those who opposed Kavanaugh’s nomination, she said.“We had a student who stopped by earlier who is in favor of Kavanaugh,” she said. “We had a very productive discussion; he shared his viewpoint, we shared ours, and I think that’s important.”Boyle encouraged students to be engaged in the political climate of the country because students have the ability to make a difference by bringing their unique voices to issues.“We’re at such an interesting point in the U.S. where a lot of the policies coming out of the current administration are so disruptive to human dignity and human rights,” Boyle said. “We should be plugged into immigration debate and the DACA debate — we have to know what’s going on because we have an obligation to act.”McManus said with the opportunities students at Notre Dame possess, they should do their best to stay informed.“I think student activism is tremendously important,” McManus said. “We have the power to vote, we are given an immense amount of freedom and we need to voice our opinions.”Tags: #cancelKavanaugh, Brett Kavanaugh, call-in, senators, student activism, Supreme Courtlast_img read more

Korea sets 42% renewable energy target by 2034

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Korea Herald:Renewable energy will take up nearly 42 percent of South Korea’s power generation capacity by 2034, according to a blueprint for the national energy mix unveiled Tuesday.The final draft of the Ninth Basic Plan for Electricity Supply and Demand for the years 2020-2034, drawn up and released by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, reaffirms President Moon Jae-in’s commitment to move away from nuclear power and toward renewables.While the country’s electricity generation capacity is projected to surge to 185.3 gigawatts by 2034, from 120.5 gigawatts this year, renewables will account for 41.9 percent followed by liquefied natural gas at 31.8 percent and coal at 15.6 percent. Nuclear power is projected to provide 10.4 percent.That represents a major change in the energy mix, which currently depends on coal. Last year, coal, LNG and nuclear power were the mainstay of electricity generation in Korea, contributing 40.4 percent, 25.9 percent and 25.6 percent, respectively. Renewables made up just 6.5 percent of total electricity production.In detail, the plan envisions the shutdown of 30 coal-fired power plants by 2034, which will have reached their operational lifetime limit of 30 years by then. To ensure a stable electricity supply, 24 of the facilities will be turned into liquefied natural gas power plants.To compensate for the smaller numbers of coal-fired plants and nuclear plants, the government will roll out renewable energy generation facilities with a combined capacity of 77.8 gigawatts by 2034, almost quadruple the current 20.1 gigawatts. Though the government’s midterm goal was to increase Korea’s capacity for solar and wind power to 29.9 gigawatts by 2025, the target has been adjusted to 42.7 gigawatts, as President Moon Jae-in’s Green New Deal initiative is expected to add an additional 12.8 gigawatts.[Kim Byung-wook]More: Korea to quadruple renewable power by 2034, downsize nuclear, coal Korea sets 42% renewable energy target by 2034last_img read more

Changing of the Seasons

first_img red fall leaves photo courtesy of Eric Albitz, ericalbitzphotography.com Photo courtesy of Eric Albitz, ericalbitzphotography.comArguably one of the most beautiful times of year, fall is finally upon us. The leaves have begun to adorn their autumn colors, the sun sinks away earlier and earlier each night, and suddenly, the morning air is accompanied with a sweater appropriate chill.What a great time of year to go out and explore, to go to bed early, and to find different ways to stay warm. There is no better feeling to me then staying warm amongst crisp autumn temperatures. It seems impossible during those hot summer memories to cool down, to let your temperature drop, you couldn’t escape the heat. But the fall is different. Add more layers, eat a hearty meal, or get that blood pumping; there is a multitude of ways to stay warm during the fall.Something just feels right about the way long-sleeves fit in October. Walking out to the vibrant orange and yellow atmosphere, feeling the cold not at your skin, but stopped short by added layers. It’s almost like your outsmarting the system, like your fighting a small battle against Mother Nature and coming out victorious. Throw on the forgotten cold-weather cap and you are conqueror of this universe. The reason your room seems so cold in the morning is because you have stayed warm under the covers all night. Fall is here and you are ready.Besides adorning feathered clothing, a different inclination of humans can also be attributed to the dropping temperatures, a natural instinct engraved into our genes; the penchant for body heat. Never in the summer is hanging out in cramped conditions a necessarily joyous event. But come the long nights and cold temperatures of the fall, gatherings of people can be found packed into the kitchen, the family room, and all together in an effort to keep the cold away with a collective warmth.It can be strange at first, stepping outside and not immediately drowning in sweat, the new colors are nearly blinding with their brilliance, and the world you once knew has shed its skin to reveal a new kind of beauty. Unarguably one of the best times of year to go out and explore; fall is the season to stay nice and warm.-BDL fall colorscenter_img fall on the mountain photo courtesy of Eric Albitz, ericalbitzphotography.comlast_img read more
