We, along with our NATO and international colleagues, will form a ring of steel around the Libyan coast to make sure that no embargoed goods are supplied to the Gaddafi regime by sea.“We will also help to make sure that any aid shipments for victims of the regime’s oppression do successfully make it through to their intended destination.”(mod)[mappress]Source: mod, March 29, 2011; View post tag: HMS Cumberland HMS Cumberland Ready to Move into Next Phase of Operations in Libya View post tag: Move HMS Cumberland is ready to move into the next phase of operations in Libya by enforcing the arms embargo under UN Security Council Resolutions 1970 and 1973.The Royal Navy Type 22 frigate has been a key part of the UK’s response to the crisis in Libya since the beginning of the troubles in February.One way she is able to enforce the arms embargo is through her embarked Lynx helicopter which can search a wide area of the sea quickly to assess the activities of Libyan forces and search out any vessels which are in breach of the UN-sanctioned arms embargo on Libya.The ship’s Royal Marines and Royal Navy boarding parties have been honing their skills recently so they are ready to be deployed at minutes’ notice if needed to conduct searches of suspect vessels stopped by the Type 22 frigate under the embargo.The boarding teams can be deployed rapidly by sea boat or by fast-roping onto the deck of a suspect vessel from Cumberland’s Lynx helicopter.HMS Cumberland’s Commanding Officer, Captain Steve Dainton, said:center_img View post tag: Naval View post tag: Libya View post tag: next View post tag: Operations View post tag: phase View post tag: Ready Share this articlelast_img read more

Show guides

first_imgThere is a fine line between brilliant innovation and the utterly bizarre. This was evident from the Hotelympia 2008 exhibition, which showcased a vast range of products, including aluminium teabags and juice made from flowers.== Snacks ==In the snacking category, hand-cooked crisps with a high mark-up price are all the rage. At the end of last year, research company Mintel predicted this trend would take off in 2008. Demand for hand-cooked crisps in particular has grown about 20-30% in recent years. According to Mintel, sales of standard or regular crisps dropped by 3% between 2004 and 2006, while sales of premium brands increased by 4% over the same period.”People are looking for quality products that are perceived to be healthier than the standard varieties. They want exciting flavours and a great-tasting product,” said Simon Herring of Pipers Crisps. “Bakers can benefit from added-value sales, as consumers view crisps as indulgent treats and are buying more expensive ranges.”Among a wealth of handmade premium snacks that were on display, Pipers Crisps are hand-cooked and come in a range of flavours, including Biggleswade sweet chilli, and Somerset cider vinegar and Anglesey sea salt. Other crisp companies at the show included The Real Crisp Company, Salty Dog, and Yorkshire Crisps. Yorkshire Crisps come in a range of flavours, including tomato, basil & mozzarella, parsnip with black pepper and Cheddar & caramelised onion chutney.Healthy snacking options are also on the rise, such as fruit and cereal bars. An unusual snacking alternative making its debut in the UK is Wheat Nuts. The nut-free snack has no trans fats and is claimed to be a good source of the antioxidant vitamin E.== Soft Drinks ==Health, once again, was high on the agenda in the soft drinks category, with some companies pushing innovation to its limits.The Hibiscus Drinks Company launched what it called “the UK’s first superflower drink”. Hib! is made from the calyx of the Hibiscus sabdariffa flower bush and pure spring water. It has no artificial additives, colourings or flavourings. Anita Doran, director of the Hibiscus Drinks Company, said: “Hib! contains a source of anthocyanin antioxidants, which help to mop up harmful free radicals in the body and have been linked to a reduction in blood pressure and the slowing of cancers.”It comes in two flavours including Hibiscus and Grape and Hibiscus and Peppermint. Other drinks companies at the show included Juice 4 U with its new smoothie dispensing machine and Projuice, which provides everything for setting up and running a juice and smoothie operation. The firm was also promoting its own Juice Academy.== Tea ==As a nation of tea drinkers, offerings at the show were varied. Stick Tea, for example, is a novel alternative to teabags. The point of using stick tea is to alleviate the need to stir with a spoon. It is a disposable infuser made with a thin aluminium sheet. According to the company, just put the stick into an empty glass, pour in hot water and stir the stick until the tea is the desired strength.Award-winning Newby Tea UK was also promoting its range of luxury teas, including Imperial Jasmine, Royal Black Dragon, Premier Assam and organic teas.Typhoo, one of the household names at the show, launched the On the Go Cup. This features a teabag inside a cup that is ready to go. “As consumer lifestyles become busier and lunch breaks get shorter, Typhoo On the Go Cup is a way for bakers and outlets to drive tea sales, particularly at point of purchase, where 75% of all purchasing decisions are made,” said Typhoo’s Sue Jones-Smithson.== Coffee and machinery ==The Italian Beverage Company was showcasing a range of products, including Fairtrade hot chocolate, flavoured syrups, sauces, toppings from marshmallows to toffee crunch, speciality teas, wafers and beverage machines.Café Bar, which supplies a range of bakery chains including Lyndale foods and Firkins, was also showcasing its range of Espresso machines. The latest new addition is the CMA-Planet espresso unit. The CMA-Planet system is manufactured in Italy and is available in single, double, triple or quad brew versions and the operator can choose between automatic and semi-automatic modes.Other companies with espresso machines on show included Macro, First Choice Coffee, Coburg coffee company, Black & White, WMF, Scotsman Beverage Systems, Magrini, Brasilia coffee machines and many more.== Cakes and confectionery ==No cup of coffee is complete without a slice of cake. Chasing a share of the premium dessert market, The Handmade Cake Company launched its Blueberry and Lemon Drizzle Cake.Barry Callebaut, supplier of chocolate to the baking industry, also promoted its range of hard and soft chocolate coatings, as well as its single-origin chocolates with 70% cocoa from Ecuador, Madagascar, São Thomé, Java, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela.Sandwiches, wraps and speciality breadsTaking place alongside the exhibition, The British Sandwich Association held the British Sandwich Designer of the Year Competition.It also gave presentations, ranging from healthy options to adding value to your sandwich, delivered by development chef Howard Rowell from Cherry Valley.According to Cherry Valley, there are over two billion sandwiches sold out-of-home each year and a third of people want to see duck used in sandwiches and wraps. The company showcased its range of sliced and shredded cooked duck meats and handed out sandwich recipe ideas.Nearby was Speciality Breads, an artisan wholesale company with a range of sandwich carriers, including paninis, brioches and a fruited rustic loaf.”The Speciality Breads’ product range has evolved to keep up with changes in consumer expectations,” said Peter Millen, sales and marketing director. “These have been fuelled by foreign travel, the ’celebrity chef’ and a plethora of TV channels devoted to food.” nlast_img read more

Less salt, more taste?

first_imgA Nottingham company claims to have discovered a way of modifying salt, to provide more taste from smaller quantities.Eminate Limited’s product Soda-Lo 20 could potentially help bakers achieve lower salt targets in their products without compromising on taste, it is claimed.“Looking at a level of 2% salt in a loaf of bread, we have been able to take it down to 0.6%,” commented Eminate’s sales and marketing manager Andrew Stacey.The development of the product has also been helped by an Innovation Support Grant, of just over £4,000, from the Food and Drink iNet, which helped Eminate gather the evidence it needed that Soda-Lo 20 worked in bakery products. It used the facilities and techinical expertise at Nottingham Trent University, which provided explanations on the function of Soda-Lo 20 in baked bread, said Stacey.“This now forms the basis of a technical explanation of its ability to reduce salt content in bread, by as much as 70%,” he claimed.last_img read more

Listen To Full Audio Of Gov’t Mule’s Tribute To The Allman Brothers At Peach Fest

first_imgWith the unexpected cancellation from Gregg Allman, it was Allman Brothers’ guitarist Warren Haynes that stepped in and filled the Sunday night headlining spot at last weekend’s The Peach Music Festival. The band was given an extended time slot and made the most of it, playing a rocking Mule set before reaching into their catalog and playing an extended encore tribute to the Allman Brothers Band.The main set was no slouch, as the band worked in numerous ABB and classic rock teases through hits like “Mule,” “Thorazine Shuffle” and more. The band also welcomed out Rich Robinson for “Sometimes Salvation,” and closed out the set with “Blind Man In The Dark.”The encore saw the band welcome out Blackberry Smoke members Charlie Starr, Brandon Still and Brit Turner, opening up with “Come And Go Blues” to kept people rocking. From there, Haynes playfully called upon bassist Oteil Burbridge to sit in with the band. Burbridge was a last-minute addition to the festival, as he joined The String Cheese Incident for their Allman Family Incident set earlier in the weekend, and made his debut as part of Russo, Benevento & Burbridge. Let’s hope RB&B is here to stay. Burbridge joined the Smokin’ Mule gang for a rendition of “Dreams.” Finally, Burbridge left the stage and the band closed out the show with an energetic rendition of “Whipping Post.” Good lord!Check out full audio of the Mule set below, courtesy of Chris from Jam Buzz.Mule continues their summer tour tomorrow night, August 16th, at the Saranac Brewery in Utica, NY.

Road To Rooster Walk: Mipso Discusses Songwriting

first_img“All of a sudden there’s a song – there in your hotel room playing your guitar – and you write it, and two or three years later it will come true. It keeps you on your toes.”These words, spoken by Townes Van Zandt, support a popular notion of the songwriter in American popular culture: A rambling man, on the road with a band, playing venues both squalid and splendid, creating songs from thin air with little more than a beat up guitar, bottle of booze and hotel notepad.And there’s no doubt that countless great tunes have been written in such a manner. But there’s another question worth asking: In 2017, are most songs written that way?To find out, we spoke with six songwriters who will be at the ninth annual Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival over Memorial Day weekend (May 25-28) in Martinsville, VA. These six artists: Paul Hoffman (Greensky Bluegrass), Anders Osborne, Andrew Marlin (Mandolin Orange), Lyle Divinksy (The Motet), Marcus King, and Wood Robinson (Mipso) bring different backgrounds, hometowns, experience levels and genres to the craft of songwriting.Perhaps unsurprisingly, they write songs in different manners. In fact, some artists create songs with very little “writing,” literally speaking. For proof, read on to learn about the surprising methods that Andrew Marlin employs when creating fresh material for Mandolin Orange. Then, catch their afternoon set at Rooster Walk 9 over Memorial Day weekend.Editor’s Note: This is the fourth story in a six-part “Road to Rooster Walk” series about the craft and process of songwriting. Previous installments featured The Motet, Greensky Bluegrass, Marcus King, Anders Osborne, and Andrew Marlin.Just like last week’s band, Mandolin Orange, Mipso hails from the stringband stronghold of Chapel Hill, N.C. But unlike their Tar Heel brethren, Mipso features four songwriters, not one.The combination of Wood Robinson (bass/vocals), Jacob Sharp (mandolin/vocals),Joseph Terrell (guitar/vocals) and Libby Rodenbough (fiddle/vocals) gives the band an embarrassment of lyrical riches, each with his or her own approach to the craft.“I know that for Jacob, he writes based on a single line that will come to mind, and spend months working around that one line. For Libby, I know that it’s a lot to do with kind of the thematic content of the verse that she writes. She usually writes when she’s driving, and a verse will come to mind,” Robinson said. “And then for Joseph, it’s kind of more on the same lines as Libby does, where he’ll have a rhythm and meter to a verse that he’s working on and then expound upon that.”For Robinson’s part, he admitted no regular process or method to his songwriting, claiming instead that his songs are realized only when “the divine light shines upon” him.But unlike Marlin or Osborne, most Mipso songs are far from finished when introduced to the rest of the band.“None of us are extremely attached to the initial blueprint of the song that was originally brought to the table,” Robinson explained. “So if someone has a good idea, it’s just a good idea. And that can make the song even better. So sometimes (the finished product) was just what the original songwriter wrote and intended. But probably much more often, to a typical listener’s ears, it would be apples and oranges, very different between what was initially performed for the rest of the band, and what the band ends up performing.”For an example, look no farther than “Momma,” off the band’s 2015 release, “Old Time Reverie.”Sharp wrote the song about his late mother, each stanza depicting a different hypothetical conversation between himself and his mother, father and brother.Sharp first presented the song, which at the time was just guitar and lead vocals, to Terrell while the band was on tour in Japan. The two proceeded to work out many of the harmonic elements of the song but left it unfinished.“Then when we got into the studio, with the help of Andrew Marlin, who was producing that record, we started adding orchestral” violin elements, and fretless electric bass, to the song, “that are really beautiful and really haunting,” Robinson explained.The finished product “wound up being much more than a single guitar with a singer – which it could live very comfortably as,” Robinson said, “but it feels like a much more band-orchestrated arrangement.”Though all four songwriters vary in their creative methods, Robinson said they share an appreciation for the craft of songwriting, and the fact that studying one’s trade will only lead to improvement.“There’s some serious truth to the fact that you learn the craft by knowing the craft,” he said. “We all listen to a lot of music and a lot of songs. And almost all of the best songs have already been written. And to recognize that and try to learn from the ones that already exist – you know, you listen to a record with headphones on and you take notes. And find those turns of phrase that you like so much. And somehow some of that sentiment will seep into your head. I know that that has helped me a lot in learning from some of my favorite songwriters. And I know that that’s how all of us think: You can’t write a good song if you haven’t heard one before.”Songwriters who influence Wood: Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon (“among the true greats.”) Jonathan Byrd, Robbie Fulks, Simon Linsteadt, Andrew Marlin, Neil Young. (“There are so many. It runs the gamut.”)Song: “Momma”last_img read more

Broward Legal Aid recognized

first_img Broward Legal Aid recognized The Legal Aid Society of Broward County was recently profiled in Dialogue, a national magazine published by the American Bar Association.In the article, the typical workday of five of the legal aid organization’s attorneys is described. LAS has been serving Broward County’s poorest residents for more than 30 years, and the attorneys focus on children’s advocacy, consumer law, housing and special projects including immigration advocacy, the Ryan White project, and the Environmental Law initiative.Each story told by the attorneys in the article is similarly heartbreaking. Attorney Mindy Jones tells of the abused woman who came to LAS for help escaping from her police officer husband. Debra Koprowski defends elderly clients who have had their property illegally taken from them by predatory lending con artists. Janet Riley keeps poor people from losing the only home they’ve ever known. Ann Siegel helps children get the legal educational testing they need — a task made personal to the attorney by her own child’s struggles with the system.LAS of Broward County received more than $650,000 in funding from The Florida Bar Foundation last year.

Jadranka Primorac, member of the Management Board of Sv. Katarina: Medical and health tourism is an opportunity to position Croatia in the world

first_imgThe strength of the tourism brand that we have should be used for additional positioning in the health tourism market. Foreign tourists do not have a generally developed trust in the Croatian health care system, but they base it on individual experiences, which is not nearly enough for a larger number of foreign patients. As Croatia is becoming an increasingly desirable and popular tourist destination, this moment should be used and given added value because the effects of tourism are not only the effects on the commercialization of success through the hotel, marina or camps, ie “sun and sea” but it should be much wider.  For all of us who “live” medical tourism, there are situations where patients coming from countries where the perception of Croatia is somewhat worse remain surprised to learn that here they can get even better service than at home, often at a price that is 2-3 cheaper than with them. , and in addition discover many other beauties, from natural phenomena, cultural heritage to gastronomy.  It is absurd that out of 19 million foreign tourists who visited Croatia last year, the number of those who came for treatment is at the level of statistical error.- Jadranka Primorac, member of the Management Board of Sv. Catherine The growth of such demand for health and medical tourism services in the world is mostly generated by the crisis in the health systems of developed countries, high prices of health services, long waiting lists, and the general trend of population aging. The latest estimates from the European Commission show that in Europe, by 2040, the population over the age of 65 is expected to increase to 26% of the total population, so the growth in demand for health solutions outside their home countries will become even more important.  Building an attractive and sustainable destination for medical and health tourism requires a long-term strategy and action plan For example, in the new programming period, the use of financial resources from EU funds allocated for health care should be enabled not only to public institutions but also to private health care institutions, as is the case in other regulated EU countries. Also, in order for healthcare to become a desirable segment of investment, it must be allowed to use the benefits of the Investment Promotion Act, which is not the case now. The global growth of the health and medical tourism industry is estimated at 15-20% per year, and by 2025 it is estimated to be over $ 120 billion.  The specificity of health and medical tourism, ie what puts it in the sphere of real economic activity, is precisely its multiplicity, since it runs many different sectors, and medical tourists spend up to 30% more than traditional tourists. Photo: Sv. Catherine In order to make a new step forward in Croatia and develop health tourism with individual activities and efforts of individual health care institutions, stronger state support is needed, primarily through defining and implementing clear rules that apply equally to all businesses in Croatia. Croatia is just waking up when it comes to medical and health tourism, but it has great potential, because above all we have medical excellence, great doctors, some with an international reputation, and a safe destination, which is crucial. There is a whole market of tourists who adore Croatia, and who probably do not even think of finding a solution to their health problems in Croatia. In their minds, there is no connection between Croatia as a summer destination and Croatia as an affordable solution for obtaining quality health care. It is absurd that out of 19 million foreign tourists who visited Croatia last year, the number of those who came for treatment is at the level of statistical error. The impact on Croatia’s reputation in this synergy of health and tourism is invaluable and it represents a completely different positioning of Croatia in the world, not only related to natural beauty, but also gives it added value based on knowledge. For example, Slovenia and Hungary have long ago privatized or put into public-private function all their health resorts and completely renovated them from EU funds, which was also the recommendation of the European Commission, which strongly advocates public-private partnerships. support for a more efficient private cannot initiate or complete projects. Global changes in this type of tourism are happening extremely fast, so we must not give in to the elements, but we must get involved and know how to deal with them, which means much greater involvement of the state and all other stakeholders than before. If we look at the surrounding countries, I am sure that with a good marketing strategy we can redirect 30% of patients who come to neighboring Hungary or Poland, for example, to Croatia. Let’s not forget that Croatia also has great potential in health tourism. Furthermore, the Croatian National Tourist Board and the Ministry of Tourism already have developed promotion and sales channels, which need to be modernized and adapted to add new facilities and services that the health sector can help them develop. Nothing will happen by itself but precisely because of innovative and creative individuals and companies who listen to what the medical tourism market is looking for and consider how to improve their offering by creating high quality content.  Author: Jadranka Primorac, B.Sc. oec., member of the Management Board of the Special Hospital Sv.
