first_imgBakery manufacturer Frank Roberts & Sons has posted a 9% increase in group operating profit, to £5.9m, for the full year to 1 September 2012.Sales revenue stood at £81.2m, up 3% on 2011 (£79.1m).The firm put the improved performance down primarily to strong bread volumes and increased sales of confectionery.“The result was achieved despite ongoing commodity inflation, intense competition within the bread market and poor weather during the summer, which had a direct effect on morning goods volumes,” said the firm.However in its latest accounts, filed at Companies House, the firm admitted to having reduced its employee numbers in a bid to streamline operations and  reduce its cost base. Its staff headcount dropped 7% from 2011 to 2012, from 898 to 839.The prior year also saw exceptional costs of £0.8m related to the acquisition of P&A Davies.The firm manufactures and distributes bread, morning goods, gluten-free products, pastry products and confectionery.last_img read more

first_imgPACIFIC JUNCTION — Vice President Mike Pence Friday said it’s time for congress “to put politics aside” and approve a disaster aid package that includes money for Midwestern flooding.“As Democrat senators coming through Iowa asking for your vote, the people of Iowa ought to be asking Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker — ask them why they voted against disaster assistance for Iowa,” Pence said in southwest Iowa.Senate Democrats say victims of the 2017 hurricanes in Puerto Rico need more federal help and they’re blocking a vote on a disaster aid package.“Right now, Iowa needs disaster assistance and it’s time for people to set politics aside and support the disaster relief declaration and the supplemental bill,” Pence said.Pence was in southwest Iowa earlier today, surveying flood damage and recovery efforts — and he told reporters the amount of damage that remains in the area was beyond what he had expected.“The magnitude of the collapse of levees that’s continuing to keep these flood waters rising high — we’ve got work to do,” Pence said.President Trump has approved Governor Kim Reynolds’ request to declare much of Iowa a presidential disaster area due to the recent flooding and storms.“President’s done his job. The governor’s done her job,” Pence said. “Now it’s time for Democrats in the Senate to do their job.”Iowa Republican Joni Ernst was among a group of U.S. Senators who met with President Trump Thursday about the negotiations.“Just reemphasizing to the president that we need to get this done, to work on a compromise package with the Democrats,” Ernst said. “Let’s get the deal done. Let’s get the assistance where it needs to go.”The governor told reporters it’s critical that congress act quickly.“We know what the damage is. We know where we have to start. We need the funding to implement it,” Reynolds said. “We are early on in the season. We have a levee system that is breached and as we continue to see high rains and snow melt, we’re going to continue to be impacted by this.”Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, who has said this spring’s flooding is still “an active event,” said congress must take a “bipartisan approach” to its response.“There has not been a single disaster that when the funds run out for FEMA and other programs that they haven’t been in a very consensus way re-instituted and replenished by the congress of the United States,” Grassley said.Pence toured a farm southwest of Pacific Junction that was hit by last month’s flooding. He also took an aerial tour of the flooding. On Wednesday, Senator Ernst will convene a hearing in Glenwood to discuss U.S. Army Corp of Engineers management of the Missouri River.last_img read more

first_imgSubmitted by Saint Martin’s UniversityLACEY, Wash. —  At least one of every three women worldwide has been beaten, sexually assaulted or otherwise abused, and of these crimes, less than 50 percent were reported to police, according to the Take Back the Night international program. Saint Martin’s University will help break the silence on these injustices by joining a call for an end to sexual violence during its fifth annual Sexual Assault Awareness Week, April 8-11. The week’s activities will culminate with a Take Back the Night candlelight march, to be held on the University’s Lacey campus April 11, the final evening of the weeklong observance. All activities are free and open to the public.“The Take Back the Night planning committee is excited to expand our programming to engage the entire Saint Martin’s University community,” says Laurel Dube, assistant director of campus life and the event organizer. “By repeating programs in the afternoon and evening — and by hosting interactive self-defense and Title IX training, two new events this year — we hope to more effectively involve our faculty, staff, students, alumni and the surrounding community.”“It really is time to make a change that starts with a zero-tolerance culture,” Dube adds.Take Back the Night is a march held at locations around the globe to demand the end of all forms of sexual violence. Bringing together survivors, their supporters and community members, Take Back the Night marches have empowered people of all ages, races, religions, backgrounds and genders to raise a collective voice against sexual assault for more than 30 years. The first documented Take Back the Night event in the U.S. occurred in October 1975, when citizens rallied in Philadelphia to protest the stabbing murder of Susan Alexander Speeth, a young microbiologist who was attacked as she was walking alone just a block from her home. The first international Take Back the Night took place in Belgium in March 1976 at The International Tribunal on Crimes Against Women. More than 2,000 women from 40 countries participated.Emphasizing that Saint Martin’s week of activities is not just for women, Dube strongly encourages men to participate in solidarity with all sexual assault survivors. “It is very important that men of all ages show their love and support for their mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, girlfriends, nieces — all females who are near and dear to them and whom they want protected from sexual violence,” says Dube.Events scheduled on campus throughout Sexual Assault Awareness Week are as follows:Monday, April 8: The Clothesline Project, 12–2 p.m.  and 7–9 p.m., in the Trautman Union Building (TUB): The Clothesline Project was established in 1990. Individuals affected by violence, or who know others who have experienced violence, are invited to express their feelings by decorating a shirt that will be displayed on campus as a testimony to the issue of violence against women. Members of the SMU Counseling Center, Residence Life and Campus Life will host the event and will be available to speak with participants. Facebook29Tweet0Pin0 Thursday, April 11: Take Back the Night candlelight march, 7–9 p.m.: The march is open to all members of the Saint Martin’s University and Thurston County communities. It will begin in the TUB with a keynote address by Mary Pontarolo, executive director of SafePlace Olympia, an advocacy agency and confidential shelter for survivors of domestic violence. “Ms. Pontarolo’s message will be one of aiming to break the silence for victims of sexual assault and abuse, and striving to speak out and report instances of sexual violence to  law enforcement authorities,” Dube says. The march will extend across campus; at the conclusion, participants will be invited back to the TUB for refreshments and a closing activity.Saint Martin’s University is an independent four-year, coeducational university located on a wooded campus of more than 300 acres in Lacey, Washington. Established in 1895 by the Catholic Order of Saint Benedict, the University is one of 14 Benedictine colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and the only one west of the Rocky Mountains. Saint Martin’s University prepares students for successful lives through its 23 majors and seven graduate programs spanning the liberal arts, business, education, nursing and engineering. Saint Martin’s welcomes more than 1,100 undergraduate students and 400 graduate students from many ethnic and religious backgrounds to its Lacey campus, and 300 more undergraduate students to its extension campuses located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Centralia College. Visit the Saint Martin’s University website at www.stmartin.edu. Wednesday, April 10: Self-defense classes, 12–1 p.m. and 7–8 p.m., in the TUB: These two classes will be open to students, faculty, staff and members of the local community who want to learn basic self-defense moves and the actions to take when faced with dangerous situations. Tuesday, April 9: Presentation on Title IX and sexual assault on college campuses, 7 p.m. – 9:30 p.m., in the TUB: Cynthia Johnson, Title IX coordinator for Saint Martin’s University, will discuss the various resources available to students, faculty and staff to combat sexual harassment. Participants will learn how to prevent sexual harassment on campus and what to do in the event they experience sexual harassment. In addition, members of the SMU Counseling Center and the Office of Campus Life will present the documentary film You are the One and host a discussion about it. The film explores sexual assault awareness on college campuses through the work of two activists, Kelly Addington and Becca Tieder, who each endured a sexual assault experience while in college and have since devoted themselves to building communities with zero tolerance for sexual violence.last_img read more

first_imgFacebook47Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Barb Lally for Rob Rice HomesRob Rice Homes have luxurious features—what many other builders consider upgrades—all included in the price of each lovely home. The stylish surfaces offered are thoughtfully selected and coordinated by Design Consultant Deanna Collins of Signature Interiors and Design, a valued partner of the local South Sound builder for more than ten years.Helena Rice, who oversees their homes’ exterior and interior design choices, will tell you that for any surface chosen for their homes, whether it is rich hardwood flooring, shiny granite or quartz countertops, fine cabinetry or glistening designer backsplash tile, Deanna plays a key role.“I don’t ever have to decide what tiles I want for a bathroom or kitchen backsplash,” says Helena “I trust Deanna’s exceptional design choices in our homes that wow buyers when they walk in to any one of them.”Deanna and her artDeanna makes the design choices for Rob Rice Homes and helps integrate the look for the entire home.How does Deanna know how to coordinate it all?“I have been in the industry since 1998 and have been working with Signature for 10 years, so I have a real sense of what will look good. I also have a love of art, something that has always been a big part of my family, so the choices are almost second nature to me.”Rob Rice provides a “start sheet” that shows paint colors, type of faucet fixtures, stone color, where the home sits on the lot and the natural light streams in so a Signature designer can assign the right colors and tones and integrate them with the entire home.“I choose products that are timeless, not just trendy, so that almost anyone can move into a Rob Rice Home and use colors they love. Every house is unique, but timeless.”Deanna is able to use high-end products because of the volume she orders from vendors.“When I see a more expensive tile or flooring that I really like, I can negotiate with the vendor for a lower price due to volume because Rob Rice is the area’s largest builder.”Deanna stays currentBecause of the Rices’ trust in Deanna, she has the leeway to introduce new products if necessary.Kim Showalter(l) and Helena Rice (r) review design choices with Deanna Collins (c) for new luxury homes on Select Homes Sites.“With accent pieces that need to be updated, I will replace them with something more current,” Deanna says. “You know what color is in right now? Dusty rose! There will be a lot of new products coming out with dusty rose. It’s something to consider for a decorative backsplash in a bathroom, a subtle touch.”Deanna also explains that you can actually mix cool colors with warm ones, depending on the floor plan.“I will do a cool master bath but a warm-colored kitchen so there is a good mixture for everyone who will live there.”Despite the fact that some say gray— a popular design color—shouldn’t be used in the Northwest because of all of our gray days, Deanna takes exception to that concept.“There are warm undertones now in many new grays, so you can really pull it off. I can still do great, warm touches with the new grays and it can all be integrated with the carpet, counters and walls.”Despite trends, Deanna is very aware that the design in a home is personality-driven.“One Rob Rice Home buyer in Campus Highlands had moved here from Arizona and loved the Southwest look. We helped her with all her surface choices and she then hired an interior decorator for furniture and décor to match and it was stunning…absolutely beautiful.”Pre-sale buyers enjoy the luxury of a trip to the design centerIf buyers pick their lot and floorplan in a pre-sale before a home is built, a Signature designer meets with them for two to three hours to help make the design choices for their cabinets, flooring, counters and accents.Pre-sale buyers have the luxury of a 2-3 hour consult with a designer at Signature Interiors & Design to make their choices.One of those recent pre-sale buyers had been looking for a new home for more than two years, and had tried working with a custom builder to get all of the features they desired.“It all ended up costing way too much,” explains that buyer who finally found what they were looking for at the Villages at South Hill in Puyallup. “Rob Rice Homes is the best of both worlds. With the pre-sale, we were able to go to the design center to pick out what we want in it.”Buyers appreciate the guidance from a designer, turning what could be a tedious process, into an enjoyable one.“We take them room by room, so they focus on one room at a time,” Deanna describes. “Buyers can make their choices systematically. It is as easy as a,b,c.”“I let the buyers know that my job is to make sure when they move in they are not disappointed with what they chose,” adds Deanna.Select Lots offer new design opportunitiesDeanna has recently helped Helena Rice make stunning design choices for two unique homes that Rob Rice is currently building on 77th Ave. SE in Olympia. The homes are part of the “Best of South Sound” builder’s “Select Home Sites – Thurston County” program—gorgeous homes built on larger 1.5 acre lots.Deanna Collins has been a valued design consultant for Helena Rice for more than a decade.These homes give Deanna a new opportunity to apply more of her designer skills.“I am very excited about the opportunity to be even more creative and do things we are not used to doing. We are using fabulous products and a completely different look. These are very individual and custom-looking luxury homes.”Rob Rice Homes will be building two more of the Select Sites homes in the Indian Summer neighborhood in Olympia.Enjoying the partnership with Rob Rice Homes“Rob and Helena are huge advocates for their homeowners and convey their expectations,” says Deanna. “We do our best to meet those expectations.”“Rob builds with consistent quality and keeps his buyers happy. Drive through any Rob Rice Community and it looks like it just got built. The neighborhoods are beautiful. Rob walks every one of his homes personally because his name is on them. I truly respect that and it makes it so wonderful to work with them.”Learn more about Rob Rice Home at their website.Rob Rice is Thurston County’s largest local home builder and was voted the Best of South Sound for 2013 and 2014. He has built more than 3000 homes over the last 30 years.

first_img23 March 2015The government is urging South Africans to use Human Rights month as a vehicle to foster social cohesion, nation building, national identity socioeconomic developement – as well as an end to xenophobia and homophobia, Justice and Correctional Minister Michael Masutha said at an official event held to commemorate Human Rights Day in Uitenhage on Saturday.Masutha urged communities to stop looting shops owned by foreign nationals: “We need to root out the new habit of looting shops owned by immigrants. These shops render services to the very communities that end up looting and destorying them.”He encouraged people to report complaints about illegal activities in immigrant communities to their councillors or to the police. “Don’t vent out your grievances by looting shops and destorying property,” Masutha said.Addressing the crowd at Rosedale Field in Uitenhage in the Eastern Cape, Masutha paid tribute to those who died in massacre that took place there 30 years ago.On 21 March 1985, 28 people were shot dead by police in Langa, a township on the outskirts of Uitenhage. The demonstrators had gathered to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Sharpeville massacre.Mashuta said 21 March was now a day to reaffirm the rights of all the people of South Africa. This year’s theme is “Celebrating the Freedom Charter, enjoying Equal Human Rights for All”.“We should go back to the tradition of caring for each other’s children and young people. We should go back to the traditon of caring for each other’s aged grannies,” the minister said.SAnews.gov.za and SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

first_imgMichael Vedomske Small Business Cybersecurity Threats and How to… Tags:#Ingenu#Internet of Things#IoT#LPWA#LPWAN#RPMA Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts center_img Cold chains are the hidden lifeline of much of the modern world. A cold chain is the sequence of cooled storage and refrigerated transport which keep produce fresh, vaccines viable, and families fed. This often requires very precise controls. For vaccines, a sensitive product, the cold chain is carefully crafted to maintain temperatures typically between two and eight degrees Celsius. Such a tight temperature range mandates a stringent process and the necessarily tight-knit infrastructure to support it.The consequences for insufficient infrastructure and inadequate processes are severe. For example, India loses nearly 40% of its produce as a result of poor cold chain infrastructure. In developing countries, where refrigerated trucking often isn’t available, keeping vaccines viable those last few miles to the people who need it is a grave challenge.Fresh produce and meats require more than just refrigerated air on their long journey to our plates. Many products need specific levels of CO2, O2, humidity, and other factors in order to ensure they arrive in a condition that consumers will still purchase and enjoy. Each of these details has to be measured and maintained, logged and assessed. This is, in reality, already the Internet of Things in action. So what new innovations can the emergent IoT offer?One of the most impactful new developments is a category of wireless technology called low-power, wide-area (LPWA) technology. The basic premise is in the name: it’s wide-area wireless connectivity (like a cellular network, it’s “just there”) that offers low power consumption and thus longer battery life. One of the available LPWA technologies, RPMA, is uniquely positioned as it solves both the global availability problem and the sunsetting problem.Michael Vedomske, PhD, Principal Data Scientist at IngenuThis first complexity is solved by utilizing the 2.4 GHz universal band, which is available for use in every country in the world. Using a single radio across a global fleet means there is no more need to coordinate and check whether certain fleet assets will be able to operate in a given region. arises as working in a new country may require an entirely new wireless module. Sunsetting, in the wireless world, is when a technology becomes obsolete and is no longer available for use. A present example of this is 2G data technology sunsetting at the end of this year at AT&T and by end of 2019 for Verizon. Other carriers are following suit globally. The issue for the cold chain is that each time a sunset occurs many costs propagate throughout the chain.The sunsetting kink is solved by the fact that RPMA always maintains backward compatibility. Because machine and sensor and other IoT traffic is its sole reason for existing, it will not and cannot fall prey to the competing network demands from voice and high throughput data. RPMA simplifies operations and management not just today but forward through time, as there are no sunsets.Only pay for the right truck rollsTruck rolls are literally an essential part of logistics. Ironically, they can also be a source of needless expenses. These expenses come when equipment fails, or otherwise need attention from a maintenance crew or repair company. Included in these costs are the sensors and wireless connectivity keeping the information flowing, as well as the batteries used to keep it all running.Any cold chain vendor understands that hardware costs are only a small part of the total cost of ownership for any system. Each time work has to be done on the equipment—hardware swaps, battery replacement, repairs—it requires maintenance, a truck roll, and paying for that labor intensive work easily outweighs the cost of the hardware itself. One of the most common and incessant maintenance items is swapping or charging the battery. LPWA connectivity trades lower throughput in order to achieve longer battery life, some as long as twenty years. This is good for logistics, and the cold chain specifically, as longer battery life reduces the number of times human labor is needed to retrieve the sensor and replace or recharge the battery. Each reduction in battery swaps propagated across an entire fleet adds up to very significant savings. Furthermore, this removes steps from the overall process improving efficiency: another kink smoothed out by the Internet of Things.Get the best for less without the messMany vendors utilize passive data loggers in order to keep costs down. But because of the extreme increases in battery life and reduced module costs offered by LPWA technologies, these savings can be pushed into other investments, like purchasing more active loggers. But perhaps even better than just having more active loggers is the fact that you get the benefits of a professionally managed wide-area network. Outfitted with a wide area solution, you can read the data from wherever you want. The data is sent over the air, just like a cellular network, and into your back office solution. Whether your back office is in Minneapolis or Macau, you can get updates wherever your shipments are. But perhaps one of the biggest bonuses a wide-area solution provides is the professionally managed network. The wireless system is managed by a company that specializes in wireless technology. Their existence is purely around making sure it works and does so reliably. This means your company can focus more on what it is good at. No late night hassle trying to fix the wireless infrastructure. No growing support teams. No managing, operating, maintaining, and conducting emergency repairs of wireless infrastructure. Rather, with a wide-area solution you just get wireless that works, for less, and for longer. That’s the beauty of LPWA.

first_imgRanbir Kapoor’s character in Barfi doesn’t have a single dialogue. The trailer of the film, keeping his deaf and mute character in mind, relies completely on the background score to highlight Ranbir’s performance.Ranbir, who sports a thin, golden braid in Barfi, had a blast with the two leading ladies of the film – Priyanka Chopra and southern siren Illeana D’Cruz at the unveiling of the film’s first look by director Anurag Basu in Mumbai on Monday.The trailer of the film was simultaneously released on YouTube, and has received more than 1,66,000 hits within no time while Ranbir’s deaf and mute act in the film was appreciated so much that he was trending on Twitter.The 2.27-minute long fast-paced trailer on YouTube has no dialogues and shows Ranbir clowning around. He has shown great chemistry with newcomer Illeana, who is his romantic lead in the film. Priyanka, who plays a mentally challenged girl, sports short, curly hair and dowdy outfits in the film. She has gone completely de-glamorous to get into the skin of the character.Ranbir has drawn inspiration from “Charlie Chaplin and Mr Bean” for his character, where he has to convey everything through his actions and emotions. His fans have also been gushing about his braid.Illeana, a Goa-based model who has worked in several hit southern films such as Pokiri, Devdasu and Kedi, plays a Bengali girl in the film.Netizens have gone gaga over Ranbir-Illeana’s chemistry in the trailer, which doesn’t have much of Priyanka.advertisementAt the launch, Ranbir clowned around with his co-actors, putting to rest speculations that he and Priyanka shared cold vibes. Rumours were rife that the actors had a misunderstanding on the sets of their previous film Anjana Anjani in 2010.”Illeana has the maximum dialogues in the film. Since Ranbir’s character is that of a mute boy, he emotes through actions while Priyanka too has to rely on her facial expressions in the film,” director Anurag Basu said, explaining his forthcoming dark comic thriller. Basu, who has previously made films such as Life?in a Metro and Gangster, had scored a dud with his last film, the Hrithik Roshanstarrer Kites.Meanwhile, Ranbir’s fans have already declared the film a hit. “Even though RANBIR KAPOOR’s character doesn’t talk in #BARFI. He as an actor speaks volumes. Period!” tweeted Devansh Patel. “Barfi trailer charming. This Ranbir Kapoor grabs your attention and won’t let go,” tweeted producer Pritish Nandy.last_img read more
