McCambridge site faces an uncertain future

first_imgThe future of McCambridge’s Bradford bakery is in doubt as bosses consider a proposal to close the cake manufacturing site at Thornton Road.The McCambridge Group has met with the Bakers Food & Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) and has entered a period of formal consultation, expected to last a minimum of 30 days.Staff have been warned that 80 jobs may be lost. In a statement issued to staff on Wednesday, 18 March, the firm said the current plan was to consider the transfer of approximately 40 of its 120 employees, with the move of the confectionery line to its nearby City Road site.Group HR director, Nick St John-Moore, told British Baker that the Thornton Road bakery had been acquired by McCambridge as part of the Inter Link Foods group, which went into administration in mid-2007. “It was one of Inter Link’s loss-making bakeries,” he explained. “We reduced the loss and actually got it back to a state where it was ’washing its face’ – neither losing nor making money – but we’re now faced with the onset of a recession, which has made a lot of difference.”St John-Moore admitted that if the firm was unable to transfer any jobs to City Road, it would be looking at a worst-case scenario of 120 job losses.”We’re working closely with the union representatives, and we’re by no means committed to closing the site yet,” he said. “We’re still looking at other ways in which we can salvage the whole situation, but it is difficult. However, if we have no choice other than to close it, we would certainly hope to salvage at least 40 jobs by transferring them to City Road.”Staff have been told that selections for the transfer positions would be done by use of a skills matrix, which has yet to be agreed with the union, but is expected to include an assessment of skills, flexibility and attendance.last_img read more

Reporting in

first_img== Barbara Gallani ==BCCC sector manager – Food and Drink FederationThe 56th Biscuit, Cake, Chocolate and Confectionery Technology Conference took place at the end of March and was attended by 70 delegates from industry, ingredient suppliers, government, academia and research institutes, as well as students from Leeds and Reading UK universities.Following the merger of the Biscuit Cake Chocolate and Confectionery Association into the Food and Drink Federation in 2008, it was decided that the group would continue to run the annual technology conference, as it provides the sector with the opportunity to hear and discuss technical and regulatory issues of importance. Speeches of particular interest to the bakery sector included a talk by Professor Malcolm Povey, of the University of Leeds, on the assessment of crispness and crunchiness by acoustics; and one by Dr Colin Hamlet, of Premier Foods, about successful acrylamide minimisation strategies for biscuits, cakes and crispbreads.Several speakers addressed the opportunities and challenges of saturated fat reformulation and the presentations on trans fatty acids (TFAs) were also very topical, considering the recent discussions in the European Parliament and the numerous amendments proposed to the Food Information Proposal requesting back-of-pack labelling for TFAs.It was clear from the presentations and discussions that the main drivers for success in the UK biscuit, cake, chocolate and confectionery manufacturing industry stem from great challenges: the need to continue to innovate, even in the current economy; and the need to stay ahead of rivals and deliver healthier and indulgent products for consumers.last_img read more

Students present on gender studies in third biennial conference

first_imgThe Gender and Women’s Studies Departments from Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Indiana University-South Bend hosted the third biennial Midwest Undergraduate Research Conference in Gender Studies, themed “New Directions in Gender Studies,” Friday and Saturday in McKenna Hall. The conference featured 12 panels of 43 students who presented on political representation, feminism, marriage, identity and performativity, body image, media and culture, science and technology, policy-making and other research areas related to gender relations. The occasion also included an alumni panel and reception, as well as a keynote address from Ntozake Shange, a playwright and poet, as part of the InterAction Community Theatre for Social Justice Action conference.Saint Mary’s senior Taylor Thomas presented on the history and interpretations of the Sapphire stereotype, otherwise known as “the angry, black woman” stereotype. Titled “Warped Images: The Sapphire and Relationship Abuse in the African-American Community,” Thomas’s presentation explored the media portrayal of the Sapphire stereotype and its effect on younger generations through intimate partner violence. Thomas said she is very passionate about both African American studies and efforts to counter stereotyping and prejudice.“My goal for all the research I do on black men and women is [to] combat the many stereotypes applied to them and help create new narratives,” Thomas said in an email. “Furthermore, I hope to inspire the people who heard my presentation to analyze the media they take in and to critique it publicly [by telling] those in power, loud and clear, representation matters.”Studying gender relations is important because women, especially women of color, are more likely to experience physical violence than men, Thomas said. Through her research, Thomas said she analyzed the statistics surrounding gender relations, such as the wage gap between male and female workers, as well as the violence directed toward LGBTQ youth.“Americans like to think that we are so far beyond the times of racial discrimination and women’s suffrage, but the truth is that we still face many of the same issues — just in different ways,” Thomas said. “We never actually solved the problems of the past, we just found Band-Aid solutions. Gender relations and gender studies asks us to look deeper. In the same way you must remove the root of a weed to be completely rid of it, you must do the same to problems in our current world.”Saint Mary’s sophomore Katherine Wankelman said she titled her presentation “‘Who Tells Your Story?’: Lin Manuel Miranda’s Color-Conscious Casting and the Women of ‘Hamilton’” because of its focus on the implications of the renderings of gender and race in Miranda’s hit Broadway production “Hamilton.” Miranda provides his audiences with commentary that invites them to reconsider the ways they have learned and engaged with the history of the United States through the lens of gender and race, Wankelman said.“The telling of our history is predominantly white-centric and androcentric, and that is problematic for a number of reasons,” Wankelman said in an email. “Too often, we think that history can be considered outside of race and gender, merely perpetuating the cultural norms of whiteness and maleness. Therefore, if we … remove race and gender from history, we are excluding a number of important voices from the narrative.”Miranda’s purposeful manner in which he presents the constructs of race and gender to his audiences is especially evident in his color-conscious casting and the dialogue of “Hamilton” character Eliza Schuyler, Wankelman said. Through her research, Wankelman found the version of history most often taught and analyzed excludes people of color and women — both by chance and purposeful omission. The cultural phenomenon of “Hamilton” cultivated an enormous fan base, she said, allowing for the important, widespread reception of the inclusive renderings of race and gender.“I think it is important to think critically about the media and aspects of pop culture that we engage with and acknowledge where they may or may not be problematic in the ways they discuss various social constructs,” Wankelman said. “The media we consume has an influence on the way that we see the world, and no one is truly immune from this. Therefore, we must carefully consider what ideas the media … [perpetuate], such as gender binary and gendered norms.”Gender and women’s studies highlight the intersectionality between race and gender issues, which could lead to greater success for feminist movements like the Women’s March, Wankelman noted. The research of topics like race and gender can push people to consider those who are excluded from the narrative of history, she said, and empower others with the tools necessary to make effective and lasting change for the future.“The way we engage with gender, be it our gender or someone else’s, is so contingent on our understanding and education,” Wankelman said. “Gender is something that we are surrounded with every day, and that necessitates a conversation coupled with education.”Notre Dame senior Liam Maher presented on his thesis, which he said discusses “the performativity of gender and how [drag artists] turn it into an art form.” Despite being nervous about public speaking, Maher said the discussion was “a fantastic experience.”“Especially since I plan to go into academia after graduating, it was a really great experience for me to practice presenting my research, talking about it with other people and workshopping with other people about their research to try to relate it to wider trends in different fields,” Maher said. “It was a lot of fun — super causal and low-key, but a lot of cool topics were discussed. … It was really great to see people from all these different academic institutions able to get together and really be able to talk and relax and have fun.”Maher said he believes the status of gender relations at Notre Dame makes the topic especially important for students.“Notre Dame kind of has a funky gender relations dynamic, which you find out really quickly when you go anywhere else in the country or even out into South Bend,” he said. “I think it’s really important that Notre Dame hosts conferences like this that talk about these gender issues and historical trends of gender relations and gender itself. In future years I’d like to see it grow into an even bigger event that gets more of the Notre Dame community involved, because a lot of the topics that were discussed were just so cool and I wish more people could have heard them.”Notre Dame senior Taylor Still’s presentation of her thesis, “‘Chi rappresenta noi?’ [‘Who represents us?’]: What it means to act in the interest of women from Italy and the United States,” focused on issues of citizenship and the treatment of Italian-American women, Still said.“As a first-time presenter, I was pretty nervous going in, but it was such a welcoming environment and it was awesome to see how interdisciplinary everything was,” she said. “I think people tend to think of gender studies as insular, but that’s not the case at all. It was great to see everyone enter into the conversation and try to make connections between each other, even between the days. I think it was evidence that there was a lot of authentic listening going on — people trying to constructively learn from each other.”Tags: Gender Studies, gender studies conference, Midwest Undergraduate Research Conference in Gender Studies, New Directions in Gender Studieslast_img read more

Golfing for science

first_imgGolfers can bid online now to tee up at the most exclusive golf courses in the Southeast and help fund turfgrass research while doing it.Through April 21, more than 650 golf courses, including 81 in Georgia, will take bids on foursomes online at Rounds4Research.com. The golf industry fundraiser supports research at the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and turfgrass programs in South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas and Virginia.Unique approach“This is definitely a nontraditional way of getting funding which is essential during these times of extremely tight budget deficits,” said UGA CAES turfgrass specialist Clint Waltz. “This is a good example of just one partnership between academia and the industry. In this way, the public can directly help fund cutting-edge turfgrass research.”Last year, the auction generated $55,000 for turfgrass research at Clemson and North Carolina State. Then, mostly courses in the Carolinas participated in the project last year. This year’s auction features courses in Georgia, Texas and Virginia, as well as the Carolinas. “Obviously, with three new partner states, this year’s auction will be bigger and better in every sense,” said Paul Jett, certified golf course superintendent at Pinehurst No. 2 and Rounds4Rsearch chairman. Jett is a past–president of the Carolinas Golf Course Superintendents Association, which runs the auction. “Golfers will find bargains and they will find the keys to a lot of doors that would not otherwise be open to them,” he said.Exclusive courses open doorsParticipating Georgia courses include The Ford Plantation, the Capital City Club’s Crabapple course, East Lake Golf Club, home of the PGA Tour Championship, and Sugarloaf, a regular PGA Tour stop and a Tournament Players Club course.“This auction gives the average golfer opportunities they could only dream about,” said Anthony Williams, president of the Georgia Golf Course Superintendents Association. “At the same time they are helping the industry insure its future health, literally from the grassroots up by supporting turfgrass research.”GGCSA coordinates Georgia’s participation in the Rounds4Research project.In other states, PGA Tour stops like Sedgefield Country Club in North Carolina and Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina are donating tee times, too.Other exclusive private courses participating include some ranked by Golf Digest magazine among the 100 best in the country, like Sage Valley, Long Cove, Yeaman’s Hall, The Homestead’s Cascades Course and Eagle Point.The auction menu also includes Pinehurst No. 2, which hosts a third U.S. Open Championship in 2014; and the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Resort, which hosted the 1991 Ryder Cup and will host the 2012 PGA Championship.Proceeds benefit research critical to the continued health of the golf industry and the billions of dollars in economic benefit it generates in each of the participating states’ economies.

Group urges Shumlin to reverse support for ‘big wind’ energy

first_imgLeaders of six citizens groups from around the state joined today with VCE and others to call on Governor-elect Shumlin and the new legislature to re-examine their support for utility-scale wind on Vermont’s ridgelines.‘We are gathered today to sound the alarm bells ‘ nothing less than the future of Vermont is at stake. The proposed ridgeline wind projects will irreparably harm our natural resources and habitats, make hundreds of Vermonters sick, and leave scars that will never heal ‘ all for little if any benefit to Vermont or the environment. There is a better way, and now is the time to change course,’ said Annette Smith, VCE Executive Director.Smith was joined by residents of many communities, including Sheffield, Sutton, Lowell, Georgia and Milton, Ira, Poultney, Clarendon, Londonderry, Manchester, Waitsfield, Craftsbury, Westfield, and other towns facing wind projects in their area. Community group leaders continued their call for a ‘time out’ on all utility-scale wind development in the state so that the latest information on health impacts from noise could be evaluated to determine how utility-scale turbines affect people who are forced to live near them.Dr. Ben Luce, Lyndon State College professor of physics, described the other renewable options available to Vermont that will more effectively reach common goals. ‘We must act on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but the appropriate way for Vermont to do that is by increasing our use of solar, expanding efficiency, weatherizing, and increasing vehicle efficiency. Utility-scale wind on ridgelines is incredibly destructive to wilderness, and has little potential to contribute to US emission reductions: The fact is, even utilizing ALL of the developable ridgeline wind resources in the Eastern US would decrease US emissions by less than 1%. Much more could be done with solar, with basically no impacts to wilderness’ he said.Michael Caduto, award-winning educator and author, described the many negative impacts from industrial-scale electricity generation. “Vermont’s and New England’s landscape need not be despoiled with hill-crowning wind towers that are connected to distant municipal centers by new transmission lines that will cut a swath through our natural and human communities from northern Maine to southern Connecticut. The time has arrived for a new energy paradigm’one that re-orients the movement of capital and engineering know-how toward generating renewable, sustainable energy that flows between a multitude of small-scale solar and wind power installations within the communities where the power will actually be used.” Caduto said.Momentum is building for these types of solutions, explained Lukas B. Snelling, Director of Energize Vermont. He described how his organization is working with leaders in several Vermont communities to develop community-based solar projects.‘When project planning starts with residents, not developers, issues like siting, visual impacts and financial benefits can be solved collaboratively. We are charting a path to effectively solving our energy challenges, by starting in communities not foisting projects onto them,’ Snelling explained.Smith called on the new Governor and legislators to ensure that citizens concerns are heard in the legislative process. ‘In the coming legislative session, there will bills introduced that address siting of projects, financial support for renewable energy, regulatory oversight, and energy planning. On each of these issues, Vermont citizens have educated themselves and learned hard lessons when state policy has become a reality in their communities. We call on the legislature to ensure that citizens get the time and respect they deserve to testify on all of these critical issues,’ she said.‘Good public process is what VCE is all about,’ Smith concluded. ‘Without it, we will lose what is most special about Vermont.’  Source: VCE. 11.17.2010last_img read more
