first_imgDespite a previous dispute with Tesco last October, Premier Foods is supplying a range of Hovis loaves to its UK stores to raise money for the Royal British Legion.A Tesco spokesperson told British Baker magazine that it is currently stocking the Seed Sensations range, which is raising funds for the Legion’s Poppy Appeal. Last year, the two companies fell out over a price rise and, as result, the supermarket giant de-listed 11 Hovis product lines. This included the brand’s fundraising bread range, which was reported to have deprived the Legion of a five-figure donation.The range will be raising money for the cause, donating 4p to the Poppy Appeal for each pack sold between now and 13 November. This will include its Rich and Roasted 800g and Light and Nutty 800g bread products.Claire Low, marketing manager at Hovis, said: “Hovis has a long history of supporting the armed forces, even donating a Spitfire during the Second World War. We are proud of the work we’ve done with the armed forces in recent years. This will be the third consecutive year that Hovis will work to raise £100,000 for the charity. The Poppy Appeal remains a highly relevant cause that deserves support.”Last year, following the dispute with Premier Foods, Tesco decided to make a £40,000 donation to the war veterans’ charity to show its support for the annual appeal.last_img read more

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Know the power of the leader’s voice.by: Michael Hudson, Ph.D.OK, I confess. During Tom Flick’s keynote presentation at last month’s CEO/Executive Team Network, I found myself daydreaming. Not exactly a desired behavior from one who would be leading a coaching session on the topic immediately following the speech, but it happened nonetheless.Here’s why…A former NFL quarterback turned motivational speaker, Flick spoke about the power of the leader’s voice–how words create pictures that create emotions that create attitudes that create behaviors that create habits that create reality. As he did so, my mind wandered to the time when I learned just what that meant—something I didn’t fully understand until hearing his insights.When I was 12 years old, my 4-H friends (finally) convinced me to attend state camp. They had tried for the previous couple of years, but frankly I didn’t get the appeal. Maybe that’s because my aunt and uncle lived at the camp year round and to me it was just a place that I went once in awhile to see family. So the idea of attending a full week of camp there certainly didn’t seem all that appealing.But that changed during the opening campfire program… continue reading »last_img read more

first_imghermes is planning to clear out part of its retail portfolio and move into new sectors, which could include residential and continental Europe for the first time.The pension fund’s biggest disposal will be the Grosvenor Centre in Northampton, which is understood to be under offer to Legal & General for more than £80m. Hermes is shedding the centre because it feels that it is overweight in the Midlands. The deal will mark one of the largest shopping centre transactions in the past 12 months.Hermes is also to sell the Lion and Lamb Yard shopping centre in Surrey to Portman Investments for £12.3m and a portfolio of seven town-centre retail units to Dawnay Day for £13.5m.Richard Harrold, head of property, said that he hopes to complete the disposals in the next three months. A decision, he said, on whether to invest in the residential sector is likely to be made before the end of the financial year.However, Harrold said that a view on Europe would not be taken until the full effects of the euro had been assessed.Hermes is to maintain a neutral balance on its £1.5bn property portfolio.Of the recent sales, the Grosvenor Centre in Northampton comprises 39,019 sq m (420,000 sq ft) of retail and office space. The sale is expected to represent a 6.7% net initial yield.The Farnham centre comprises 6,596 sq m (71,000 sq ft) of retail space and the deal will represent a 7.7% net initial yield. The sale of the portfolio of seven town-centre units will represent a 9.1% net initial yield.Legal & General is also to move its property weighting from an overweight to a neutral position. But a spokesman said it is targeting business park and industrial holdings.Jones Lang Wootton acted for Hermes in Farnham and Northampton; CB Hillier Parker acted for Hermes on the retail portfolio. Cluttons Daniel Smith acted for Portman Investments while Lewis & Partners acted for Dawnay Day.last_img read more

first_imgBy Allison Perrine The Rumson Police Department has, like Oceanport, also noted an overall decrease in call volume since social distancing orders started. Borough residents have reported some car thefts, however, and the department is getting calls concerning violations of the governor’s executive orders. That includes residents outside with others, not wearing masks or face coverings. Kelly also minimized staffing in the department’s building at the beginning of the pandemic to avoid having officers in close quarters. Some were given administrative days at home, allowing them to be on-call but not in the office. Rumson Borough Police Chief Scott Paterson also has his officers in the proper PPE for serious and crisis calls, but they are keeping their distance as much as possible. They do not enter a house without proper equipment, he said. According to Oceanport Police Chief Michael P. Kelly, this issue is not unique to the borough or even to the county, as it is happening across the state. The belief is that there are two rings of criminals operating out of North Jersey who are stealing high-end cars and items inside them, like wallets and cash. But in March, there were a reported 30 car burglaries on the east side of Oceanport; two cars were stolen and later recovered in Newark. In April, in the Kimberly Woods section of town, there were four or five vehicle burglaries. According to Kelly, these rings usually take the cars, put them in containers and ship them overseas to be sold. There has been, however, an uptick in car burglaries in the area, as well as scam calls and first aid calls. MONMOUTH COUNTY – Police departments in the Two River area are reporting a general decrease in call volumes during the COVID-19 pandemic, as more people stay inside and keep off the roads. The parks are open during normal posted hours, available at monmouthcountyparks.com. Parking is limited to half capacity. Park rangers monitor visitor loads and can temporarily close parks if parking lots become too full. Buildings, including restrooms, shelter buildings and picnic pavilions are still closed. Answering emergency calls during the shutdown has created certain challenges. The department is trying to handle as many calls as possible over the phone; more serious calls are handled in person. Officers who are dispatched to any crime scene must take the proper precautions to keep residents and themselves safe; they wear personal protective equipment (PPE), including N95 masks and gloves. “I am so grateful to the Monmouth County Park System for handling the reopening of the parks and golf courses in such an exemplary way,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the Monmouth County Park System, in a press release. “I have always said that we have the best park system in New Jersey and I was proud to hear that Governor Murphy, who visited Thompson Park this weekend, publicly complimented the way the County parks were set up and monitored.” center_img There is also a bail scam going on throughout New Jersey that targets elderly community members. Scammers are gathering information about the victims, claiming to be bail collectors and telling them that a family member is in jail and needs bail money. Aside from burglaries, the Oceanport Police Department is seeing an increase in first aid calls, not necessarily related to COVID-19 cases. More people are home, and Kelly believes that’s why there have been more calls of people falling, suffering strokes and experiencing mental health issues. The department has only had a few coronavirus-related calls. “We were lucky we had a supply of PPEs,” said Kelly. “We don’t want officers, and unfortunately it’s happened, bringing the virus back to the home.” Two officers from the department have needed to self-quarantine due to potential exposures to the virus. This past weekend was a true test for New Jersey residents. It was the first weekend after Gov. Phil Murphy reopened state parks and allowed county governments to open parks and golf courses if they chose to do so. Monmouth County opted to open their facilities and, according to the freeholders, it was successful. “I feel as though with the opening of our golf course and tennis courts and stuff like that, we’re going to see an uptick in those sorts of things,” said Paterson. “We’re hoping and praying and asking for everybody to do the right thing and pay attention to all the executive orders.” “Everybody has been hitwith them in MonmouthCounty,” said Kelly. “Weusually have them, butthey’re intermittent.” “That minimizes the number of officers here. Internally, that was the one major thing we did,” said Kelly. “I prohibited officers from congregating. Roll calls were basically done via phone or email so they wouldn’t all be in one area at one time.” “They’re preying on these people and they’re actually getting them to give their information and showing up at their homes,” said Kelly. He believes residents from five county municipalities have been impacted. The article originally appeared in the May 7th – May 13th, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

What he lacked in participation in this council he more than made up for in his work behind the scenes.“I’m sure every councillor here has the will of their community and constituency at heart and I’ll be no different than that.” Mr Gallagher said that he aims to do his best to work in cooperation with the executive and members, but he will also be vigilant to hold the local authority to account.“If I see something wrong, don’t think I won’t call it out, because I will, that’s my nature,” he said.Mr Gallagher also paid tribute to the former councillor Dessie Larkin of Letterkenny, who passed away last week. Letterkenny’s Eugene Gallagher takes his seat on council was last modified: March 25th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal County Councileugene gallagherletterkennylast_img read more

first_imgPolitical and business leaders will gatherat the Cape Town InternationalConvention Centre in June for the NewGlobal Opportunity conference, hosted byTime Warner.(Image: MediaClubsouthafrica.com. Formore free photos, visit the image library) Top global leaders and businesspeople, including those on the Time 100 and Fortune 500 lists, will head for Cape Town in June for the New Global Opportunity Conference, hosted by the powerful Time Warner group.From 28 to 28 June, while the sporting world takes in the spectacle of the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa, some of the most influential people on earth will gather at the Cape Town International Convention Centre for the first-ever Time/Fortune/CNN Global Forum.The conference is a sign that the city is growing in stature as a holiday and conference destination.City of Cape Town business tourism manager Amanda Kotze-Nhlapo said it has made 48 bids for meetings and conferences during 2010. “Cape Town as a business destination is on par with the likes of Europe. We are a major industry contender.”The Fortune 500 and Time 100 luminaries will mingle with distinguished South Africans and visitors from government, business, the arts and sciences, and civil society.Confirmed delegates already include Time Inc editor-in-chief John Huey, finance expert Suze Orman, former Irish president Mary Robinson, renowned pianist Lang Lang, Koos Bekker, CEO of media house Naspers, Rio Tinto CE Tom Albanese and AstraZeneca CEO David Brennan.The special guest speaker has yet to be announced, but past speakers include Microsoft CEO Steven Ballmer, former French president Jacques Chirac, President Hu Jintao of the People’s Republic of China, former US president Bill Clinton, and media mogul Rupert Murdoch.The Time Warner entertainment and communications group will co-host the three-day event with South Africa’s Department of Trade and Industry. Editors of Fortune, Time and CNN will lead the sessions together with relevant experts.Fortune magazine has hosted the Global Forum since its launch in 1995, but 2010 will see the other two partners come on board for the first time. The event will receive broad coverage in a variety of media genres.Exchanging new ideasThe purpose of the gathering is to exchange new ideas, identify opportunities, and stimulate debate on issues that affect the global economy, and especially that of the developing world.This year Africa will be the main item on the agenda, as established companies look to emerging markets as a source of new approaches and business models. According to Time’s international editor Michael Elliot, the “old ways” won’t suffice if growth is to be inclusive and sustainable.“And the role and potential of those who have been marginalised in the past – the poor, especially women and girls – will only grow,” he added.Topics will range from sport as a driver of economic growth and the role of social media in the developing world, to a discussion of China’s operations in Africa, business strategies for emerging markets, and control of major diseases.A fitting settingTime managing editor Richard Stengel sees Cape Town as a fitting setting for the high-powered meeting, as it is a model for the new Africa: “diverse, entrepreneurial, forward-looking,” wrote Stengel in the latest edition of the magazine.Stengel was in South Africa recently to attend the handover of documents relating to former president Nelson Mandela’s autobiography Long Walk to Freedom to the Nelson Mandela Foundation, and historical Rivonia Treason Trial documents to the National Archives.The Time editor is closely connected to South Africa, having collaborated extensively with Mandela over a period of nearly three years to write Long Walk to Freedom, which was published in 1995. Stengel is married to a South African and Mandela is the godfather of his eldest son.“We’re calling this conference the New Global Opportunity,” wrote Stengel. “This is the idea that global economic power is shifting to the developing world – to Africa and the Middle East, as well as to Asia.” He added that these young markets are not just frontiers of growth, but are the sources of new ideas and models that can be applied everywhere.Stengel also mentioned that the much-anticipated World Cup would receive special coverage from Time in an upcoming issue on global football.Movers and shakersThe annual Time 100 list names what the magazine considers to be the 100 most influential people of the year. Since the list’s inception in 1998 a number of South Africans have made it to the rankings. Former president Nelson Mandela is the only one to have appeared more than once – he was listed in 2004 and 2005, and appeared on the list of the 20th century’s most influential people.The Fortune 500 list, now in its 56th year, ranks the top 500 US public and private companies according to their gross revenue. No less than 17 South African companies are listed on the Fortune Global 2 000 list of the world’s top 2 000 public companies, based on sales, profit, assets and market value. Among them are the Standard Bank group (223), Sasol (305), the Bidvest group (1102), and Shoprite Holdings (1749).last_img read more
