Food industry and campaigners debate sugar challenge

first_imgStakeholders including the food industry, politicians and health campaigners met in London last week to discuss ‘the ongoing sugar challenge’.Hosted by Sugarwise, an organisation that validates low sugar and sugar-free food and drink products with a kite mark on packaging, attendees came from across the food industry as well as the Department of Health, Public Health England (PHE), and the Food and Drink Federation (FDF).“I would like to shift the focus of the debate to positive measures that can be taken on sugar reduction,” said Sugarwise founder Rend Platings before the event.Diabetes increasingThe meeting followed the revelation in a recent BBC Panorama programme that an increasing number of children are being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes due to poor diet.Platings added: “This is not a future I will accept for my child. I’d like to get people’s heads together on all sides of the debate to work out what our steps will be.”In August, the government published its long-awaited strategy ‘Childhood Obesity: A Plan for Action’, which has called on manufacturers in some food categories – including bakery – to cut the amount of sugar in their products by 20% by 2020.Among the plans – which include the previously announced sugar tax on soft drinks and efforts to make young children more active – is “a broad, structured sugar reduction program to remove sugar from the products children eat most”.‘More to obesity than sugar’At this week’s Sugarwide discussion – held at the Palace of Westminster – Jenny Rosborough of campaign group Action on Sugar said: “There’s more to obesity than just sugar, but it’s a popular topic at present and a good vehicle for discussion [of health in general]”.Action on Sugar believes imposing voluntary measures on food manufacturers is not effective.The discussion was chaired by Keith Vaz MP, chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Diabetes, who said: “Retailers, consumers and manufacturers all have a responsibility to take action on this matter.”Tam Fry of the National Obesity Forum was critical of governments (past and present) for not doing enough in the forum’s 20-year history, adding that labelling changes were an important consideration.He also pointed out that products will no longer be bound by EU guidelines following Brexit. One attendee added that manufacturers will still be hoping to sell to European consumers, however, binding them to EU legislation to some extent.Sugarwise solution?Platings called for lower-sugar options to be more visible – in a similar vein to Fairtrade and vegetarian products – describing the Sugarwise kite mark as a “third-party way of determining sugar information, validating the manufacturer’s data”.But Rosborough suggested: “Only people who are healthy and engaged are looking at health labels in the first place.”last_img read more

Life That Rises From The Glowing Stone: The String Cheese Incident Digs Deep On Night Two At Red Rocks [Photos]

first_imgPhoto: John Verwey There a few events more quintessentially “Colorado” than The String Cheese Incident’s almost annual run at the renowned Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. Saturday, on a brilliant and warm summer night, String Cheese played a sold-out show for the ages, chock-full of mind-bending jam sandwiches and deep improvisation.The Main Squeeze opened up the night with their signature blend of heavy rock and soul music. A perfectly executed cover of Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” was a highlight of the set as guitarist Max Newman dug deep before eventually bringing it all back to the main riff. Following a couple more tunes, lead singer Corey Frye thanked the crowd for coming out for some “Cheese and Squeeze” before handing the stage over to the longtime Colorado residents.Nearing the end of their home-state run and coming off of a fiery Friday night show, the band took no time getting down to business, busting out the fan-favorite “Miss Brown’s Teahouse” to open the first set. Typically loose and groovy, the boys worked through the different sections of the song, with guitarists Billy Nershi and Michael Kang each taking a handful smart, concise solos. Following “Betray the Dark”, the opening bass licks to Weather Report’s “Birdland” rippled across the audience. A true jazz fusion standard, the song provides ample material for each and every band member to work with. From drummer Michael Travis’ steady snare/hi-hat beat in the opening passage to Kang’s arcing guitar lines and keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth’s cool, breezy piano later on, there was truly never a dull moment in the song.But the band wasn’t stopping there. A buttery segue dropped right into the opening guitar lines of Pink Floyd’s “Fearless” from their 1971 album Meddle. “Fearless” morphed through some gritty funk sections and then turned into a much-needed, Nershi-led bluegrass intermission of “Freight Train Boogie” and “Wheel Hoss”, all before slipping right back into the end of “Birdland”. Billy then sang another tune, “Big Shoes”, featuring an epic talk box solo from Kyle. Hollingsworth then finished things off with the irresistibly danceable String Cheese classic, “Rosie”, which finally made its first studio appearance on their 2014 album, Song in My Head. As always, the song oozed with keyboard funk and the crowd got down in proper fashion to close out the first set.Following a brief set break, the band returned to the stage with friend and recent collaborator, vocalist Ruby Chase. The group opened the set with a pair of new songs from the SCI Sound Lab, “The Other Side” and “The Big Reveal” For the latter, Kyle gave a heartfelt introduction, explaining his early experiences at Grateful Dead shows at RFK Stadium and the realization that it was his kind of community, his kind of people, and his kind of music. With beautiful arcs and huge major key jams, the song was reminiscent of some timeless, older String Cheese songs and seemed well-received by fans both old and new.Bassist Keith Moseley then took his hand at leading the group, playing a perfect rendition of “Joyful Sound”. The bass-driven tune segued into “Rumble”, followed by the fairly grassy “Love Is Like a Train”. Then, slowly—almost magically—the group moved right into the Talking Heads’ “Nothing But Flowers”. The polyrhythmic feel of the rare cover fits perfectly into the String Cheese canon, while also giving percussionist Jason Hann a great framework within which to play and solo. Nevertheless, with time to spare and the feeling that something big was still missing, the band burst out of a short break between songs with the opening notes of “Desert Dawn”. Flawlessly executing the opening part of the tune, they dropped into the first improvised section with a steady sense of urgency. The feeling that this was going to be a big one was palpable. The jam opened up into an airy space before working into a thick, crunchy groove led by Hann and Travis. Kang then pushed the band on with a wonderfully watery guitar tone, dropping in John Coltrane’s “Impressions” before coming back around to the closing chorus of “Desert Dawn” The massive, exploratory take was truly one to remember and, naturally, closed the second set.Billy Nershi returned to the stage before the encore, lovingly and graciously thanking the band’s crew, the promoters, and all the incredible people who make live music possible. Of course, a group hoot (or two) were called for before Billy welcomed out The Main Squeeze and Ruby Chase once more for a blistering cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir”.The String Cheese Incident finishes their Colorado run tonight at Red Rocks Amphitheatre with support from Rising Appalachia.

MJP rules to be sent to the court

first_imgMJP rules to be sent to the court January 1, 2004 Gary Blankenship Senior Editor Regular News MJP rules to be sent to the court Senior Editor Rejecting last minute misgivings from the securities industry and a corporate counsel group, the Bar Board of Governors has approved rule amendments to regulate multijurisdictional practice in Florida.Acting at its December 5 meeting on Amelia Island, the board accepted the recommendations of its Special Commission on the Multijurisdictional Practice of Law 2002 and voted to forward them to the Supreme Court for final review.The proposed rules also include an exemption for international arbitrations, changes made in response to Miami’s campaign to become home of the secretariat of the Free Trade Area of the Americas. The FTAA would include arbitration of business disputes from throughout the Americas.“What we’re trying to do is create the concept of temporary practice, and create a presumption of when something temporary becomes permanent, that lawyer will become a Bar member,” said John Yanchunis, chair of the special commission.Yanchunis said practicing in Florida has always required that a lawyer be a member of the Bar. The only exception was for judges who could admit out-of-state lawyers pro hac vice.In practice, out-of-state lawyers regularly did transactional, trial, and dispute resolution, he said. The ABA studied the issue and approved model rules, and the special commission reviewed those and recommended the changes to Bar rules. It did not accept all of the ABA proposals.According to the special commission’s final report, out-of-state lawyers licensed in another jurisdiction and not under disciplinary sanction would be able to temporarily practice law in Florida. But they would be required to register with the Florida Supreme Court, and comply with all Bar rules, including being subject to Bar discipline. If the matter involves appearing in trial or handling an arbitration, the lawyers must also pay a $250 fee to the Bar (to offset monitoring costs) and cannot handle more than three matters in a 365-day period.Those requirements would not apply to the arbitration of international disputes.Yanchunis noted the board tentatively had approved the rule amendments, except for the international arbitration exception, last May. He also defended the change to allow international arbitration while not allowing national securities companies unlimited use of non-Bar lawyers to handle arbitrations in Florida.“International arbitration is the dispute of international issues, properties, or disputes outside the United States or Florida. And the fact that dispute comes to the state of Florida is a matter of contract,” he said. “It doesn’t affect interests that the state of Florida has. Securities arbitration is different.”That does affect state issues and state residents, Yanchunis said, and the companies have the option of having their lawyers register with the Bar as in-house counsel.“The argument is that [the proposed rule] deprives the companies of free choice, but that is subservient to the Supreme Court assuring the competency of lawyers,” Yanchunis said.A letter from West Palm Beach attorney Kathy Klock, on behalf of the Arbitration Committee of the Securities Industry Association, said that group supported rule changes allowing temporary practice, but opposed the amendment that would prevent a lawyer from handling more than three arbitration matters within a year. Klock argued that the securities industry relies heavily on arbitration; the field is multijurisdictional by nature; and in-house lawyers have the best knowledge of the companies and securities law.“In-house counsel are also able to render these specialized services in a manner that is most economical to the broker-dealer because of their unique knowledge of the company, their understanding of the cost of such representation to the company, and the value to the company of their collective knowledge that may be applied from arbitration to arbitration,” Klock wrote.She also argued that it was impossible to effectively distinguish between national and international arbitrations and hence wrong to exempt one but not the other from the new rules.The Association of Corporate Counsel also wrote objecting to the limitation in using in-house lawyers. In addition, that group said that in-house lawyers who are allowed to practice in another state by rule without being a member of that state’s bar should be allowed to temporarily practice.Board member Jennifer Coberly also agreed with Klock, saying an international company could opt to use a foreign attorney even when Florida interests were involved, while brokerages would be unable to use their in-house lawyers. “The fact of the matter is there is no principled way to distinguish between the two, because almost every international arbitration affects Florida interests,” she said.But board member Jesse Dinner disagreed, saying the report is the Bar’s best effort, and it’s time to take the issues to the Supreme Court.“We’re not going to be the final voice on this, the Supreme Court of Florida is,” Diner said. “If there are carve-outs [exceptions] that should be made, the Supreme Court will do that.. . . There will be one more time for all these people who disagree to weigh in on it, brief it, and argue at the Supreme Court.”Board member Brian Burgoon objected to removing judicial discretion to allow a lawyer to handle more than three cases in court in a 365-day period. “It’s always important to put the client foremost,” he said. “If it is a highly specialized issue that the out-of-state attorney knows, the client should be able to have that attorney.”But board member Mayanne Downs argued it was more important to ensure the public and the courts that lawyers are qualified.The board approved the recommendations on a voice vote. Bar President Miles McGrane announced that the rules will be forwarded to the court apart from the Bar’s annual rules package, to allow full opportunity for briefing and oral arguments.The final report of the special commission is posted on the Bar’s Web site at www.flabar.org.last_img read more

Clare Crawley’s ‘Bachelorette’ Season Brings Mixed Reactions

first_imgWhile reports initially suggested that Clare quit the show, she has since “liked” a series of tweets implying she was forced to step down. Host Chris Harrison, for his part, has maintained that Clare is in control of her own destiny.“This season of The Bachelorette was completely about Clare. It’s all about Clare, and she will decide where we go from here. It’s totally, completely up to her,” he told Entertainment Tonight on October 28.- Advertisement – Clare’s bestie and Bachelor in Paradise season 1 costar Michelle Money, however, believes the network may have been planning to bring in Tayshia from the beginning.“It feels to me that they had a plan, and they were executing the plan and I’m not necessarily saying it’s a bad plan. Clare obviously fell in love with Dale really quickly, but the irony is that Tayshia had to have come in and quarantined before even filming,” Michelle dished on Us Weekly’s “Here for the Right Reasons” podcast. “They had this girl already on standby before they even knew what was going on with Clare and Dale. What was going on behind-the-scenes that Clare had no idea was going on that was completely manipulated and produced?”Scroll through for reactions to Clare’s stint as the Bachelorette: ABC executive Robert Mills, meanwhile, admitted that production was worried that the season was “going to be Dale from episode 1 to episode 10” during shooting.“When she didn’t give out that rose [on the roast group date] and she just gave it to herself, that was it. That was really it, when we started making the call [to replace her],” he said on the October 27 episode of the “Viall Files” podcast.“I think that Clare was exactly what we thought she’d be, which is Clare — unpredictable,” Mills added. “Nothing ever comes easy to Clare. The one time she’s the Bachelorette, she would have been better off in that group setting.”- Advertisement – While it seems Dale Moss has secured Clare Crawley’s final rose, would other members of Bachelor Nation be down to accept it?Former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants have been very vocal about the 39-year-old hairstylist’s stint as the season 16 lead … which will seemingly come to an end during the Thursday, November 5, episode. Us Weekly confirmed in August that Clare stopped filming the show within the first two weeks of production because she was already in love with one of her suitors. ABC subsequently called Tayshia Adams to take over the role.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

Nissan to shut down global headquarters, other Japan facilities due to virus

first_imgRead also: Other automakers may be leaving; Mercedes-Benz is launching new SUVs in IndonesiaLike many of its global rivals, Nissan has shuttered most of its global production facilities due to the virus, and operations at many of its vehicle plants in Japan have been suspended since earlier this month due to plummeting demand. Even before the spread of the coronavirus, Nissan’s sales and profits had been slumping and it was burning through cash, forcing it to row back on an aggressive expansion plan pursued by ousted leader Carlos Ghosn. The pandemic has only piled on urgency and pressure to renewed efforts to down size. The automaker is due to announce a new recovery plan next month, and sources have told Reuters that executives see the need for the company to become much smaller company, selling 1 million less cars than its current annual target of 6 million units.Topics : Nissan Motor Co on Tuesday said that it would temporarily shut down operations at its global headquarters and other facilities in Japan through early May to contain the spread of the coronavirus at its sites. The Japanese automaker said that it would reduce operations to a minimum level at its head offices in Yokohama along with other non-production facilities, including in nearby Atsugi, Kanagawa Prefecture, where its main R&D centre is located. The 16-day closure will run between April 25 and May 10, affecting a total of 15,000 employees, the company said in a statement.last_img read more

US oil slips below $15 a barrel on storage worries

first_imgUS oil prices fell heavily on Monday and slipped below $15 a barrel on renewed storage concerns as the coronavirus throttles demand, even as producers start slashing output to boost markets.American benchmark West Texas Intermediate dropped 15 percent to $14.39 a barrel in Asian afternoon trade, reversing direction after several days of gains last week.Brent crude, the international benchmark, was off nearly six percent at $20.16 a barrel. “Concerns surrounding rising global inventories, especially in the US with the coronavirus pandemic weighing on gasoline consumption, are pressuring oil prices,” said Kim Kwangrae, a commodities analyst at Samsung Futures Inc.The oversupply could test storage capacity limits in three to four weeks as tanks fill up, Goldman Sachs warned in a report. The continued concerns about storage overshadowed signs that some countries — including Kuwait and Algeria — are starting to slash production in line with a major agreement hammered out this month.Top producers have agreed to reduce output by 10 million barrels a day from May to shore up markets, a deal that marked an end to a price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia. Oil prices have collapsed in recent weeks as demand evaporated because of lockdowns and travel restrictions imposed worldwide to fight the virus.Last week, US oil fell below zero for the first time as investors scrambled to offload it before the expiry of a trading contract, but could not readily find buyers.Prices have recovered since, but remain at their lowest levels for years.A key worry for traders is that storage facilities — particularly in the United States — cannot cope with the oversupply.center_img Topics :last_img read more
