“It was aimedat all different age groups, those with the knowledge about climate change andthose without much knowledge on climate change, children and young adults, aswell as older adults. Members of the public were invited to engage with XR Oxfordmembers, OUMNH staff, climate scientists and ecologists to learn more about theclimate crisis. Speaking to the Oxford Mail, Steve Dawe, fromExtinction Rebellion Oxford, said: “We agreed together to have this artsand culture event to highlight in many different ways the issues with climatechange. A Masked Intervention was also performed by XR Youth, Student and School Strike members. Different students wore half-face masks representing endangered British species, in an act designed to ‘communicate ecological breakdown in the British countryside.’ A variety of workshops aimed at different age groups were alsoon offer, including one on the events of the Oxford Citizens’ Assembly, whichwas launched at the Said Business school on Saturday. Extinction Rebellion Oxford and the Oxford Museum of Natural history held a joint ‘Art-Science extravaganza’ yesterday to raise public awareness of the climate crisis. The event involved the Extinction Rebellion talk ‘Headingfor Extinction – and what to do about it’ as well as other talks, workshops andperformance actions. Outside the museum, XR worked with the Sumatran Orangutan Society to stage multi-media performance actions which visitors saw as they arrived. “It produced aconsiderable amount of interest.”
T he relationship between supplier and retailer is vital in building success in the bakery category. With this in mind, Sainsbury’s, the sponsor of Bakery Supplier of the Year, is keen to encourage entrants who are able to demonstrate a successful partnership they have developed with a retail customer. Entrants do not have to supply Sainsbury’s to enter this award.Judges will be looking for evidence of how companies have identified a gap in the market, achieved quality standards and distribution, and set about developing a strong relationship with their customers.”Sainsbury’s is proud to sponsor the Baking Industry Awards’ Bakery Supplier of the Year for 2008,” says category manager for bakery Nick Townend. “This year we are looking for suppliers to present an example of an excellent supplier-retailer partnership that has delivered a step change in the customer offer. Seeking out the best in the industry will create a strong platform from which to face the challenges ahead.”Entrants should be able to show investment in the customer offering through innovation, quality and/or value, which has fuelled growth. Companies that strive to achieve operational excellence, underpinned by a passion for quality and product safety, should enter this award. As should those who have raised standards of corporate responsibility.”The bakery category has played an important role in the resurgence of Sainsbury’s in the past three years, with strong and consistent sales and market share growth,” says Townend.”Building strong partnerships with suppliers has been a key pillar in our success. In the past year we have seen this delivered through innovative new products such as artisan breads, as well as major changes in our corporate responsibility through our unique flour sourcing contract. This gives full farmer-to-bakery traceability.”
The Federation of European Union Manufacturers and Suppliers of Ingredients to the bakery, confectionery and patisserie industries (Fedima) is to host a ‘business session’ on national bread and pastry promotional campaigns in Europe, at its General Assembly next month.Taking place during the event from 14-17 September, at the Hotel Sheraton Krakow, the session will look to build upon an introduction given by its Spanish and Belgian colleagues last year on promotional campaigns for bread and pastry being run in their countries. It will look at what types of campaigns there currently are in EU member states, best practice advice, the legal considerations, the role of national associations, and how the baking industry can use new methods of communication, such as social media, to promote its products. A choice of workshop sessions on this topic will then follow. To find out more, visit www.fedima.org. A recent report published by the The International Association of Plant Bakeries, showed bread consumption was relatively flat across Europe, and had decreased in a number of EU countries during 2010, including in the UK (down 1%).
All signs point to more Fleet Foxes in 2017! We can’t wait. After hinting at a return throughout this year, indie folk rockers Fleet Foxes have confirmed plans to reunite. The group has not only shared a status update on a new album, but has scheduled their first live performance since January of 2012.It’s been a long time coming for Fleet Foxes fans, who haven’t heard new music from their band since 2011’s Helplessness Blues. The band posted a new image as their Facebook cover photo, and replied to a comment that asked, “New album? New album? New album?” Their reply, “Alllllmost done”.Keeping with the theme of Fleet Foxes’ 2017 reunion, the band was recently featured on the lineup for next summer’s Bilbao BBK festival in Spain. That news was confirmed by Robin Pecknold in an Instagram comment on the following thread:
Gerontology Club, a service-based club at Saint Mary’s, works to provide older adults with companionship.In an effort to give back to the greater South Bend community, Gerontology Club members volunteer at Healthwin Specialized Care Facility, a nursing home close to the College’s campus.Katie Jackson, a junior and vice president of the Gerontology Club, said their mission is to improve the lives of seniors in the area.Gerontology Club hosts weekly volunteer events in addition to larger, less-frequent events. Jackson said the weekly visits consist of activities ranging from sharing a meal with the residents, playing Bingo or giving manicures to simply having conversations with the residents.A popular weekly activity is assisting with the music and memory program, Jackson said.“Each of the residents in the dementia ward has an assigned iPod,” she said. ‘You can check out an iPod and listen to music with them. This helps them reminisce and unlock memories that they wouldn’t have access to normally.”The annual events include a senior prom, a night dedicated to dressing up and community building and Valentine’s Day card making. Additionally, the club hosts annual holiday parties at the nursing home for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.The events have a positive impact on both volunteers and residents alike, Jackson said.“I love knowing that I’m making a difference in these people’s lives like some don’t really get too many visitors,” Jackson said. “Everyone needs human contact, so it’s really nice to be able to provide that for somebody.”While the club is open to students of all majors, Jackson sees a large draw from communicative sciences and disorders, nursing and psychology majors. The club is designed to support the gerontology minor, Jackson said.Katherine Weese, a senior and the treasurer of Gerontology Club, said she wants to increase awareness and participation of the group.“My goal for the year is to have more people commit some more hours during the year and have more people go there,” she said.There is no minimum time commitment to be involved with the club. An hour requirement has been discussed and may be implemented in the future, Weese said.“For the time being, we like to have it not as strict and committal so that people aren’t scared off from joining or things like that,” she said.Students hoping to get involved with the club are encouraged to reach out to the club’s officers to get more information.“My favorite part of being involved with the club is spending time with the residents,” Weese said. “They’re so nice, and they always have great stories to tell.”Tags: Community Service, Gerontology Club, senior citizens

9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Confident in both the direction of the labor market and the prospects for inflation, the Federal Reserve Wednesday raised interest rates for the first time since before the financial crisis–a move that will have a subtle effect on credit unions.The Fed has kept interest rates pinned at their near-zero levels since the downturn in an effort to catalyze economic growth. But with the economy finally waking from its lethargy, the Fed made the decision to bump up the target range for the rate to 0.25% to 0.5%, a slightly less accommodative policy position than before.However, “the stance of monetary policy remains accommodative after this increase, thereby supporting further improvement in labor market conditions and a return to 2% inflation,” said the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), which sets monetary policy for the Fed.As for what this means for the credit union movement, Mike Schenk, CUNA vice president of economics and statistics, told News Now that the increase should hit credit unions more softly than previous rate hikes. continue reading »
Financial institutions have bristled at the success of online “marketplace lenders” for some time.These firms have built high profiles and even higher valuations by encroaching on what has long been considered financial institutions’ turf: extending moderate-sized personal and small business loans.Yet again it appeared that banks and credit unions—in part due to being hamstrung by regulation—had been outflanked by Silicon Valley disruptors.Late last year, however, the narrative began to shift. Players like Lending Club, Kabbage, OnDeck, and Prosper had established their brands and a steady flow of loan demand.It was the other side of the equation that emerged as the “gotcha.”Lenders needed to package and resell these loans into the secondary market to free up capital to satisfy the next wave of borrowers. The capital markets suddenly grew wary of these placements for fear of default risk. continue reading » 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
