How the CBA has helped its members during outbreak

first_img”The events of the past few months have been far beyond anything any of us have ever experienced before – or hopefully will do again. Although the pandemic has brought with it significant challenges, we have been impressed with the way many bakers have successfully adapted and innovated.  At the CBA, our number one aim is to provide the very best support and guidance to our members, so that they and the wider craft baking industry can continue to thrive. From the volume of calls we have received, we know that health and safety has been a key concern for our members, but over recent weeks, we have also advised on HR issues and even helped one of our members stay open when, despite being an essential food business, local police had told it to close.Throughout the lockdown, we have seen our members adapt to support both their own businesses and their communities. Some bakeries have introduced customer home delivery, others have donated goods to hospitals or raised money for local causes. All the while, these bakeries have rigorously implemented the relevant health and safety measures, in many cases working for extended periods and continuing to offer customers exceptional service. Reassuringly, local communities have supported their craft bakeries, with many stories about the positive feedback received.As the public gradually starts to return to the high street and the rules around visiting shops, including bakeries and cafés, are eased, it will only become more important for bakers to reassure their employees, customers and suppliers, that they are operating to the highest possible health and safety standards. This is why we have launched a new Covid-19 management guide. Developed in collaboration with Safer Assured, the guide contains everything our members need to navigate Covid-19 from a health and safety perspective. In addition to information on best-practice standards, safe methods and operating procedures, risk assessment templates, customisable monitoring records and signage, bakers will also be able to access personalised telephone advice from health and safety mentors.By following the advice in the guide, bakers can be sure they are taking all the relevant on-site measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus and continue to serve customers safely. Free to CBA members via the ‘My CBA’ section of the website, the guide can also be purchased by non-members.” George Fuller, chairman of the Craft Bakers Association, on the impact of the pandemic on Craft Bakers Association members, and how it is helping them deal with health & safety issues around Covid-19.last_img read more

Brisbane’s highest growth suburbs

first_imgLuke Short and Michelle Dent with their kids Jet Short, 4, and Zavier Short, 11 months, in front of their Milton home. Photo: Liam Kidston.How would you like to see your wealth increase by more than a year’s wage without doing any extra work?If you own a home in Ascot, Wilston or Auchenflower, then you’ve achieved just that, according to analysis by realestate.com.au.The company identified Brisbane’s top ten suburbs for house price gains over the last financial year based on CoreLogic data.Brisbane’s Top Ten capital growth suburbs for the 2016 financial year.In each case, the suburb’s median house prices rose in excess of Australia’s minimum annual wage of $36,000.Realestate.com.au chief economist, Nerida Conisbee, said Brisbane saw only modest price growth last year, but some suburbs have done better than others.“There are some locations that are clearly outperforming the rest of the market,” she said.Ms Conisbee highlighted the strong result for Teneriffe which saw its median house price increase by $1300 a day during the period.“$1300 a day is a pretty amazing increase and it’s well above what’s happening to people’s wages. Their homes are very good earners for them.”She said buyers showed confidence in inner city addresses like Ascot, Wilston, Auchenflower and Milton.“Those capital growth suburbs are very, very popular suburbs and they are already pretty expensive so it does make that percentage increase even more significant when you look at it on dollar-by-dollar terms,” she said.Ms Conisbee cautioned, however, the results could be influenced by factors such as proportionally more expensive or new home sales during the year, or a rise in development site sales in a suburb.“Sometimes if there’s a new housing development that can make a bit of a difference and you can get a really big uptick in prices. So you do have to be careful,” Ms Conisbee said.For example, Willowbank south of Ipswich recorded the highest gain at 29.09 per cent for the year, however among the 21 sales recorded by CoreLogic, there were several acreage properties including two transactions of over 20 hectares.Ms Conisbee said blue-chip Brisbane addresses were safer havens for investors, despite their high buy-in prices.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home3 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor3 hours ago“If you buy in those good suburbs there’s always going to be solid demand provided there’s not a major change to the area. It shows buying blue chip when you look at property, and look at property long-term, is always a good strategy.”Ms Conisbee said her outlook for Brisbane remained bullish as long as jobs growth continued for the capital.Place West director, Tim Douglas, said the inclusion of an inner-city suburb like Milton was no surprise with strong demand from families for housing.“The market is moving along quite nicely,” he said.“Certainly your driving factor is young families. Busy double-income families want to be in close proximity to all of those amenities.”Luke Short and Michelle Dent are selling their home at 28 Nairn St, Milton and were pleased to see their suburb among the top performers.The couple bought their renovated circa 1900 home five-years ago. It’s a classic professional family home offering high quality finishes and plenty of space, all in close proximity to the city and cool inner-west facilities.Mr Short said he loved Milton because of the easy commute.“I am impatient in traffic. I want to get to work quickly in the city,” Mr Short said.“It’s obviously close to all the trendy cafes and I’m a mad Broncos supporter and member … 400 metre walk to the stadium,” he said.Mr Short said although he was confident in Milton’s housing market, he was surprised by its runaway growth.“19 per cent, that’s massive isn’t it? It’s sort of what Melbourne and Sydney are getting,” he said.Follow Kieran Clair on Twitter at @kieranclairlast_img read more

first_imgDefending champion Jason Manley (right) receives the Jackalope trophy from tournament organizer Mark Gorda.It was a case of déjà vu at the 19th Jackalope Open charity golf tournament last week as Jason Manley returned to defend the title he won just 12 months ago, but this time with an even more impressive round of 45 points off his 26 handicap.A field of 82 golfers teed it up at a resplendent looking Burapha Golf Course on Friday, August 4, all looking to chase down the elusive Jackalope trophy and enjoy some great camaraderie throughout the day.  For those struggling at the start, help was at hand in the shape of numerous forms of refreshments and altogether some 24 cases of ‘aiming oil’ were consumed around the course.  Fortunately the golf doping control authorities were conspicuous by their absence.Paul Greenaway (right) was the Low Gross winner.Before starting out the players were also presented with their complimentary Jackalope golf shirts and ‘goodie bags’ as well as being proffered kick-starters in the form of Canadian Caesars at the registration desk.Once the golf was completed and the divots had settled, back in the clubhouse the players were treated to a delicious buffet dinner to accompany the awards presentation. Jason Manley was named as a 2-time Jackalope champion following his outstanding round while Paul Greenaway won the low gross title after shooting 77 off the stick.  At the other end of the score-sheet, Neil Sandilands just edged out Bobby Clark for the Rabbits award.Numerous technical prizes accompanied by the lucky draw meant that most of those in attendance did not leave Burapha empty-handed.  Bill Simonick won a Canadian themed golf bag and immediately asked for it to be auctioned off, and with three golfers bidding it sold for 14,000 baht which Bill generously donated back into the charity pot.A feature of the Jackalope golf day is the highly anticipated 50/50 draw, and here providence sent down another thunderbolt as chief tournament organizer Mark Gorda saw his number drawn out of the hat for the second year in a row.  As benevolent as ever, Mark kindly donated the entire 75,000+ baht into the charity coffers.Sandy helps Mark Gorda draw the lucky tickets.Thanks to these individual acts of generosity and vital support from the long list of tournament sponsors, somewhere in excess of 250,000 baht was raised this year to go towards the Jester Care4Kids charity drive.Top Rabbits Neil Sandilands (left) and Bobby Clark share the limelight.Those who gave their valuable time and financial support to the day included: Pattaya Bay Real Estate, The Clubhouse Pratamnak, Bar 1 Ban Chang, Rick Moren, Todd Moren, Mike Peters, Neil Sandilands, Stacey O’Toole, Tinnies the meat pie specialist, The Blue Moose, the great work done by the beer cart boys, Woody, Bill Freeman, Mike and the management and staff at Burapha, John Emmerson, Bill Simonick, Larry Deverdenne, Rob Kennedy, Golfstar Brent, Sticky, Richie Rhodes and the Nirvana resort in Koh Chang, Fraser’s Restaurant, The Haven, Q Cars, Luc and Soda Lafriene, Pattaya Pickle, Richard Murphy, Steve Mascari, T.Q., Jesters, Jack Levy,  Macallen Insurance, and Pattaya Mail Media.The Blue Moose girls provided some great snacks out on the course.Thanks go to all of these as well as to the players and the entire expat community for their vital assistance.  Plans are already well underway for the 20th anniversary of the tournament next year.  See you all there!82 golfers had a great day out at the 19th Jackalope Open.Jackalope ChampionJason Manley 45ptsLow GrossPaul Greenaway Gross 77Men’s Division 11st John McHugh 39pts2nd Jim Smith 39pts3rd Paul Greenaway 39ptsMen’s Division 21st Steven Milne 38pts2nd Craig Mansell 38pts3rd Neal Hunter 35ptsMen’s Division 31st Bernie Morris 36pts2nd Chris Harkins 35pts3rd Bill Trainer 34ptsLadies Division1st Oiy St. Laurent2nd Junko Nevis 32 ptsRabbits Division1st Neil Sandilands 37pts2nd Bobby Clark 36ptsChampions all – players pose with their trophies.last_img read more

Comedy Event to Assist The FoodBank

first_imgLocal comedian Kevin Israel will host a comedy benefit at Park East Restaurant, 3352 State Route 35 in Hazlet, at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, to help The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties.The FoodBank has been operational since the day after Super Storm Sandy, providing more than 33,000 meals in the first four days after the storm, when most other member pantries and agencies were unable to provide assistance due to power outages or flooding. Since the storm struck, The FoodBank has distributed food for more than 1 million meals, including hot meals prepared in the organization’s kitchen, military rations (MREs), shelf stable food, disaster boxes, and fresh and frozen items for organizations cooking for victims and rescue workers.“I grew up in Monmouth County and I live here now, this storm really affected everyone but we all came together so quickly to help one another,” said Israel who has been performing stand up for over 12 years. “I’ve worked with The FoodBank in other capacities and I know how much immediate good they do. This benefit will help them continue to assist those who need it the most in the coming months.“Everyone could use a laugh after the past few weeks and we’ve assembled an incredible group of comics. As soon as I approached Park East with the idea of a comedy benefit show, the folks there were immediately receptive,” Israel said. “We have Robin Fox from NickMom Night Out, Chris Covert who recently performed with Artie Lange at the Count Basie Theatre and Joseph Anthony, a finalist on TV’s Last Comic Standing. These are all Jersey comics and they’re all donating their time for this show.”Tickets are $25.

Fundraising Efforts Under Way for Monmouth Beach Former CEO

first_imgBy John BurtonMONMOUTH BEACH – Despite everything he’s gone through, Jim Fuller is grateful.“I’m grateful I’m alive; I’m grateful for having a close family” who have provided him with a place to live, Fuller said this week, nearly a week after his lifetime home was destroyed by fire, leaving him homeless and losing just about all of his worldly possessions.Fuller, 58, a quadriplegic who requires the use of a wheelchair, said he’s most appreciative that neither he nor anyone was injured in the blaze and especially “by the outpouring of support” he’s received since then, he said. “It’s just amazing to me.”Fuller’s home, 13 River Ave., was overcome by flames at approximately 1 a.m. on Jan 28. He had been in his third floor bedroom at the time watching the end of a basketball game. With his disability, if not for his live-in caregiver, Bob Kern, Fuller said he might not have survived the fire.Nearly a week after the fire, “It looks like the house is a total loss,” said Laurie Escalante Hernandez, Fuller’s niece.The house – “It was the home I grew up in, my mother grew up in,” said Hernandez, and where Fuller has lived since he was a small child – has been home to family members for 55 years.“It’s been passed down from generation, to generation,” Fuller said.Unfortunately, with the mortgage long paid off, Fuller had let the homeowners insurance lapse, leaving him and Kern homeless.“He’s lost everything he had,” Hernandez said.In the early hours of Jan 28, Monmouth Beach Fire Company , Sea Bright Fire Rescue and many other fire company volunteers faced fire and ice at Jim Fuller’s home. Photo by Tina ColellaFuller and Kern are now living with Fuller’s sister, Joyce Escalante at her South Road home.Area residents have come to his assistance, providing some clothing, some furniture and other items. And Hernandez has begun a gofundme.com page – Help Jim Fuller Rebuild – hoping to help her uncle eventually return home.As of Wednesday afternoon, 166 people have contributed $15,930.The 3,090 square-foot River Avenue home was built in 1905 and is assessed at $733,600, according to Monmouth County tax records.Along with the cash donations, “People have been sending really nice messages,” on the website, Hernandez said. Initially after the fire, while Fuller is a “calm, a pretty optimistic guy,” she sensed, “He was not taking it well,” having lost his needed hospital bed and his computer along with his clothing and personal effects.But the messages “really made all the difference,” Hernandez believed, with Fuller providing personal responses to them.“It brings tears to my eyes,” as he read the messages, Fuller said.Fuller was a freshman at Rutgers University in 1974 when he suffered an accident that required three months in the hospital and six months in a rehabilitation facility and leaving him paralyzed. He learned to drive and went to work as the borough chief financial officer and tax collector, retiring in 2012, after 33 years.“People have been really great,” Hernandez said, noting some are working to get Fuller a new hospital bed and computer. And Fuller said a local contractor offered his services to close off the property with the destroyed home.There’s still a long way to go and Fuller acknowledged “I try not to think too far in the future,” but he and his family remain hopeful that he’ll be home again.last_img read more

Sudafrikanische Wildtiererlebnisse

first_imgBushveld AbenteuerEs gibt nichts Vergleichbares zum afrikanischen Busch, und keinen besseren Ort auf der Erde fur Großwild. Neben seinen bekannten Nationalparks, bietet Sudafrika eine Fulle privater Schutzgebiete, alle ausgezeichnet fur Wild- und Vogelbeobachtung geeignet.Oder schließen Sie sich Überlandausflugen oder gefuhrten Safaris an, bei denen Sie sich zurucklehnen und darauf konzentrieren konnen, das Wild zu entdecken, wahrend jemand anderes fahrt.Fur die absolut typische Wildtiererfahrung besuchen Sie Lowveld am Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West oder die Provinzen von KwaZulu-Natal, wo Elefanten elegant durch den Busch schreiten und Lowen sich in der Tageshitze von einer langen Nacht des Jagens erholen.In der Provinz Gauteng, wenig mehr als eine Autostunde entfernt von Asphaltdschungeln wie Pretoria und Johannesburg, sehen sie Lowen, Elefanten, Buffel und hunderte weitere Arten in ihrer naturlichen Umgebung.Am Westkap mit seinem unterschiedlichen Klima und Vegetation finden Sie zwar keine Elefanten und Lowen, dafur aber Springbocke, Kap-Bergzebras, Buntbocke, schwarze Gnus und viele andere.Das Ostkap bildet den Übergang zwischen Westkap und den lowveld Wildgegenden. Die Provinz entwickelt sich rasch zu einerm beliebten Safariziel, nicht zulest wegen seinem Malariafreien Status. Der Addo Elephant Nationalpark wird standig erweitert und wird sich uber gewaltige Bandbreite an Biomen, vom Meer bis zu den Bergen erstrecken. Es gibt ebenfalls einige fantastische private Schutzgebiete in dieser Provinz, am bedeutensten Shamwari.Golden Gate Nationalpark in der Free State Provinz ist gut bekannt fur sein Hochgebirgswild wie Elen-Antilopen und schwarze Gnus.Das Nordkap ist sehr trocken und ganz bestimmt nur etwas fur Kenner, aber es gibt dort auch einige wunderbare Wildtierausflugsziele. Augrabies Falls National Park ist zumeist sehr malerisch hat aber auch eine ausgezeichnete Tier- und Vogelwelt. Der Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, der erste landerubergreifende Park Afrika’s, ist bekannt fur seine gewaltigen, schwarzmahnigen Kalahari Lowen, seine eleganten Spitzbocke oder Oryx-Antilopen, die es hier in Hulle und Fulle gibt.Biologische VielfaltSudafrika verzeichnet den dritthochsten Grad biologischer Vielfalt der Welt, es kann sich ruhmen, sieben Haupttypen von Erdbiotopen oder okologischem Lebensbereichen, mit ganz eigenen Umweltbedingungen und verwandten Gruppen von pflanzlichem und tierischem Leben sein eigen zu nennen.10% der bluhenden Arten finden sich in Sudafrika und es ist das einzige Land der Erde, welches ein komplettes Pflanzenreich innerhalb seiner Grenzen sein eigen nennt.Die Cape Floral Region, eine der acht Welterbestatten von Sudafrika, schließt acht geschutzte Gebiete ein, die sich vom der Kaphalbinsel bis zum Ostkap erstrecken, uber eindruckvolle Berg und Meereslandschaft und mit einer der hochsten biologischen Pflanzenvielfalt der Welt.Der iSimangaliso Wetland Park, der erste Ort Sudafrika’s, der in die Welterbeliste eingetragen wurde, ist nur ein Juwel der sudafrianischen Kustenlinie und mit einem einzigartigem Mosaik an Ökosystemen – Sumpf, Seensysteme, Strande, Korallenriffs, Feuchtgebiete, Waldgebiete, Kustenwalder und Grunland – unterstutzt es diese erstaunliche Vielfalt an Tier-, Vogel- und Meeresarten.SAinfo reporter, mit Material von South African Tourismlast_img read more

Hormone keys to plant growth or stress tolerance, but not both

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Plants that grow well tend to be sensitive to heat and drought, and plants that can handle those stresses often have stunted growth. A Purdue University plant scientist has found the switch that creates that antagonism, opening opportunities to develop plants that exhibit both characteristics.“Normally these two are antagonistic, but in nature, some plants tolerate stress and grow well. The questions is why some plants can have both, but most plants cannot,” said Jian-Kang Zhu, distinguished professor of plant biology in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture. “Once you know how the stress response and growth pathways are connected, hopefully we will be able to decouple them.”Working with model plant Arabidopsis, Zhu found that abscisic acid (ABA), a plant hormone, is activated in plants that can tolerate stresses such as salt and drought. But ABA sets off a chain reaction that stymies plant growth.Zhu found that in stressed plants, the ABA pathway is activated and leads to phosphorylation of the Target of Rapamycin (TOR) kinase. This essentially turns off the TOR kinase, which is essential for plant growth.The opposite happens in unstressed plants. TOR disrupts ABA perception, shutting down the plant’s stress responses. Those plants tend to exhibit strong growth.“This is the key to the antagonism between stress and growth,” Zhu said.The findings, published in the journal Molecular Cell, could help scientists and breeders who want to develop plants that can handle environmental stresses and still grow well.The Chinese Academy of Sciences and the U.S. National Institutes of Health supported the research.last_img read more
