Muffin Break to open 15 UK stores in the next 12 months

Posted on by

first_imgRetail bakery chain Muffin Break is set to open 15 stores in the next 12 months nationwide.Joshua Nixon, head of estates at Muffin Break’s parent firm Food co, said the brand was keen to talk to more landlords as it planned to increase its UK portfolio to 75 stores by this time next year.“Interest from franchisees and landlords is currently very strong for a number of reasons,” said Nixon. “However, a key factor seems to be the fact that we are a café bakery, which means our food and hot beverage offering is so much substantial than coffee and a light snack.The news comes as Muffin Break opened two new branches in Basildon, Essex and Chester, Cheshire.The new stores, which will both be 1,500 sq ft, will create 26 new jobs for the business and cater for up to 80 people.The chain also revealed that it has a store refurbishment plan in place for the remainder of 2017, to roll out its “new contemporary and flexible store model”.last_img read more

Restoring access to clean water a priority for hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico

Posted on by

first_imgPuerto Rico is facing an unfolding public health disaster in the wake of Hurricane Maria. Stephanie Kayden, vice chair and chief of the division of International Emergency Medicine and Humanitarian Programs in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and assistant professor in the Department of Global Health and Population at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, offers some insights on the public health and medical challenges facing the island.What are the biggest priorities right now in Puerto Rico? How are the widespread power outages affecting health and medical care on the island?The biggest priorities for first responders and relief agencies right now are to get people clean, safe water, electricity that’s needed for hospital medical interventions, and food.The power outages in Puerto Rico are important because a lot of the clean water supply depends upon pumps that are run by electricity. While people can live without electricity, they can’t live without clean water…The lack of electricity also makes it difficult to have good, safe food storage. And of course, without power, many functions in modern hospitals can’t work. Finally, Puerto Rico is a tropical island where a lot of people are dependent upon electricity for air conditioning. All of these things can become real safety issues.In the case of hospitals, they are going to be focused on the things that they absolutely can’t do without the electricity, such as high-level medical services like dialysis, operations, and a lot of basic medical care, like X-rays. So getting the electricity restored, even if it’s through generators, is a top priority.Are you concerned about potential disease outbreaks due to the power outages and lack of clean water?One of the most important things that we do to prevent disease outbreaks is to have proper sanitation systems—for example, flush toilets that can get human and other waste away from where people live. And in modern infrastructure, a lot of that is based on the water and sewage systems working. So, restoring water and sewage systems are a top priority for reducing disease outbreaks.The number one priority for restoring safe drinking water is to restore the water purification systems and water delivery systems through the existing pipes—that’s the best solution. In the meantime, bottled water is being distributed. But honestly, with this many people affected throughout the country, it’s going to be very difficult for any agency to deliver enough bottled water to meet everyone’s needs. So the focus needs to be on restoring the water systems.When there are so many public health challenges, how do emergency responders prioritize their efforts?…In a case like this, water and sanitation services really need to be at the top of the list after the immediate lifesaving measures, like search and rescue. Restoring the power grid is critical for providing those water and sanitation services and medical services. Food is also a priority…— Noah Leavitt Read Full Storylast_img read more

Amaryllis

Posted on by

first_imgThe showy flowers of amaryllis make an almost perfect gift. With just a little effort, this year’s practically foolproof flowers boast of countless Christmases to come, says a University of Georgia expert. “When properly cared for, an amaryllis bulb may produce flowers for many years,” said Mel Garber, an Extension Service horticulturist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “Quality bulbs of named varieties may produce up to six flowers on a single stalk,” Garber said. Amaryllis is truly a gift that keeps on giving. To get the most out of your amaryllis blooms this year, Garber said, give it some cool evenings (65 degrees). And water it often as soon as it starts flowering. Then, when the show’s over, cut back the flowering parts. “Remove each flower as soon as it passes its peak beauty,” Garber said. “After all the flowers on the stalk have bloomed, cut off the stalk itself two inches above the bulb.” That will prevent a drain of food from other developing flower buds or foliage, he said. But don’t cut the foliage, he said. The leaves begin to appear as the plant flowers. They’re the plant’s means of putting back the food reserves it expended in flowering. Indoors, keep the amaryllis in a southern window, Garber said. An eastern or western window is second best. Plants in a northern window may need extra light. When the danger of frost has passed, move the plant outdoors. The size and quality of the flowers next year depend greatly on how you fertilize it during the year, Garber said. “Any soluble or liquid fertilizer is satisfactory for pot plants,” he said. “But use it at half the recommended rate.” Fertilize first when the flowering starts, again when the flower stem is 6 to 8 inches tall and again right after flowering, when the old flowers and stems have been removed. Continue fertilizing at five- to six-week intervals. The new control-release fertilizers also work well, Garber said, and can be used at about half-rate in the pot. To prepare potted amaryllis for flowering next year, stop watering and feeding the plant by Oct. 1. When the foliage wilts and droops, cut it off. Then place the plant in a warm, dry place for two to three months. Don’t water or fertilize it during this time. In January, move the pot to a southern window. You may want to repot it if it has outgrown the pot. But remember, amaryllises like to be slightly root-bound. Then start watering and fertilizing again. And step back to watch a beautiful encore.

Unforgettable

first_imgThe Blue Sky Fund takes kids from Richmond’s low-income neighborhoods on a variety of outdoor excursions.It isn’t easy getting inner-city kids out of their comfort zone, but that hasn’t stopped Lawson Wijesooriya. She is the executive director of the Blue Sky Fund, a Richmond-based nonprofit dedicated to providing at-risk youth from low-income homes with opportunities to explore the outdoors through adventure sports and environmental education. A former teacher, Wijesooriya helped create the Blue Sky Fund in an effort to combine her love of the outdoors with her passion for helping the underprivileged kids she was working with on a daily basis. She lives in the same low-income neighborhood of Richmond’s East End as many of the kids in her program, and organizing her first trip consisted of going door-to-door and inviting kids from her street to go backpacking. She has won over many skeptical youngsters stuck in the metro rut who were initially reluctant to take a chance on a new experience in nature. Now, Wijesooriya has a paid staff, and she’s bringing hundreds of kids outside each month—whether it’s through a day trip to a local climbing gym, a science-based educational outing along the James River, or a wilderness trip in the Blue Ridge backcountry. “I was given the opportunity to backpack when I was young, and I know it was a huge part of my coming of age. That’s why I initially believed outdoor experiences would help kids, and why I wanted to give them similar experiences, even if they couldn’t pay for it. I grew up going to private schools that provided plenty of experiential education, and my goal is to provide as many kids as possible with a chance to learn beyond the textbooks and tests of a classroom. Getting kids outdoors involved in something that is hands-on excites them in a way that formal education does not.”“We work with public schools and provide hands-on science education by getting kids familiar with the outdoors in the local area. Every month we take 600 kids from public schools outside to get some hands-on experience, and last year we showed a 19 percent increase in mastery of their standards of learning science concepts. We believe this advanced achievement comes from having a really positive experience in nature.““We are also providing opportunities for kids to use adventure sports to gain life skills. Part of that is still our founding program, which is sending at-risk kids to summer camps, and once a month we run monthly expeditions with the kids that include local outings like day hikes and climbing trips. We also have a unity program, where we take kids on a wilderness trip every summer. It’s specifically focused on bringing together a diverse population, so we recruit high school kids from both public and private schools with affluent and low-income backgrounds and a huge racial mix. When we go out into the woods together, these kids see it as a level playing field. The kids are learning how to get along and meet challenges together, even though many of them come from very different backgrounds. I’ve learned how much of an equalizing common denominator outdoor activities can be.”“Recruitment was one of our first obstacles. In the beginning I was literally dragging some of these kids out of bed. Although now we’re starting to see the fruits of our labors, and many of our expedition trips are regularly filling up, it still isn’t always easy convincing kids that they’ll enjoy the outdoors. Asking a 14-year-old teenager to come into the woods with us and not shower for four days definitely takes some convincing. That’s okay, because it’s the business we want to be in. We understand the value that exposing kids to the outdoors will ultimately have in their lives, and that makes it all worth it. The best thing we have noticed is that once kids have experienced one of our trips, they almost always want to come back.”“When we take kids outside, I can see them connect the dots. I’ve taken kids down to the James River here in Richmond, and they’ve turned around and asked me, ‘Is this the Nile?’ Without real experience, it’s difficult for them to differentiate between what they’re learning in the classroom. It’s amazing to watch kids have that kind of transformative experience and realize what is right in their backyard.”“These experiences make kids believe they can do more than they previously thought they could. I recently watched a girl get outside of her comfort zone on a rock climbing wall. At first she was freaking out, but halfway up the wall, her expression changed, and I could tell she was thinking to herself, ‘I can do this.’”last_img read more

Euthanasia bill close to MP’s heart

Posted on by

first_imgStuff.co 12 August 2013People who have been self-determining, autonomous adults throughout their lives should have every right to choose when their time is up, MP Maryan Street says.Along with Waikato’s Voluntary Euthanasia Society, Ms Street travelled to New Plymouth yesterday to speak about her End of Life Choice Bill, which is in Parliament’s ballot box.Support towards the bill appeared strong in New Plymouth, with more than 50 people, young and old, turning out to listen and express their views.Only one attendee, with Christian views, stood up to express his disagreement with the document.The bill proposes euthanasia be open to people with terminal illness likely to cause death within 12 months, or to people with an irreversible physical or mental condition that renders their life unbearable – by their own assessment.Ms Street, a former New Plymouth Girls’ High School student, said the topic of euthanasia was a growing issue that had continued to generate much interest over the years.Similar bills have been through Parliament twice before.In 1995, one was defeated 61-29, while in 2003 another missed out by two votes.http://www.stuff.co.nz/taranaki-daily-news/news/9029192/Euthanasia-bill-close-to-MPs-heartlast_img read more

George McGinnis

Posted on by

first_imgGeorge McGinnis attended Indianapolis Washington High School from 1966-69.  His Washington High School team was the 1969 state champions in basketball.  His coach at Washington was Bill Springer who I knew personally because he was a coach at Jennings County before he went to Washinton.  From there he attended one year at Indiana University where he averaged 29.9 points per game and was named an All-American.  George then went pro with the Indiana Pacers.  He led them to back-to-back ABA championships and was the league’s MVP in 1973.Why am I giving you all of these statistics?  It is because it took almost 50 years after his time at Washington High School in Indianapolis and all of these accolades before he was named to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.  Why is this significant?  Four other members of the Indiana Pacers are already members of this Hall of Fame and most of them played after McGinnis.  Bobby Leonard, who was George’s coach while he played for the Pacers thinks it was politics.  Leonard did not divulge what he meant by this.  I saw McGinnis play basketball, and few (if any) Indiana players were better than he was at any level.  (Information for this article came from article that appeared in the Indianapolis Star.last_img read more
