Craft Bakers launch coronavirus management guide

first_imgThe Craft Bakers Association (CBA) has launched a Covid-19 management guide designed to help its bakers navigate the operation of shops from a health and safety perspective.Developed in collaboration with Safer Assured – environmental health experts in the fields of infection control and legal compliance – the guide provides bakers with information on best-practice standards, safe methods and operating procedures, risk assessment templates, customisable monitoring records and signage.Bakers will also have access to personalised advice over the phone from health and safety mentors.Those following the standards laid out in the management guide will be able to apply to receive the new Covid-Safe UK quality mark. After a successful examination via video link to verify the required controls are in place, bakers will be awarded the mark, which can be used for a year and displayed in shop windows.CBA members can access the guide for free via the ‘My CBA’ section of the website, but it can also be purchased by non-members, at £49 per site. Application for the mark is not included in the free management guide, but CBA members can access this for a reduced rate.“While many bakeries have stayed open over recent weeks, as we move to the next phase the Covid-19 management guide will provide bakers with everything they need to navigate the pandemic from a health and safety perspective and we hope it provides some much-needed guidance and reassurance,” said Karen Dear, director of operations at the Craft Bakers Association.“Although the past couple of months have been fraught with challenges for bakers, we hope this guide helps bakers through any health and safety issues, leaving them free to focus on making the most of the opportunities that lie ahead.”The CBA represents around 500 bakery businesses in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, which have 3,000 shops on the high street, as well as wholesale companies and specialised confectionery businesses.last_img read more

Obama: In trying times, truth first

first_img Through the Bloomberg Harvard Initiative, student fellows help mayors to improve lives Related Mayors get crisis response lessons from Harvard experts A summer of service to cities This is part of our Coronavirus Update series in which Harvard specialists in epidemiology, infectious disease, economics, politics, and other disciplines offer insights into what the latest developments in the COVID-19 outbreak may bring.The coronavirus pandemic is testing the management and leadership skills of mayors across the country — particularly in larger cities like New York, Detroit, and Chicago, which have been hit with far greater intensity than more rural areas.One rising concern for all municipal leaders is the residents’ mental health amid prolonged social distancing and the daily drumbeat of grim news about mounting deaths and infections. For nearly everyone the abrupt social and economic changes brought on by government-mandated activity restrictions have been disorienting. Soaring tallies of contacts at online mental health services and recent opinion survey data indicate people are feeling increasingly anxious and stressed, with many acting out in harmful ways.During a virtual seminar Thursday, 750 people representing nearly 300 U.S. cities got advice from top executives who led the nation’s last public health crisis, the Ebola epidemic, on how to help their cities cope and prepare for reopening in the coming weeks or months.“The biggest mistake that any of us can make in these situations is to misinform, particularly when we’re requiring people to make sacrifices and take actions that might not be their natural inclination,” said former President Barack Obama, J.D. ’91. He urged the mayors to speak truthfully, but with compassion and empathy for what their communities are going through.In a complicated, rapidly evolving crisis, communication is critical. “That kind of ability to be clear about ‘Here’s what we know; here’s what we don’t know; here’s why we’re doing this; here’s why we need the public’s cooperation’ could not be more important,” he said.“People need to know that you are understanding what they’re going through and that it’s hard. They also need to know that better days are ahead. It won’t be tomorrow, or next week, but things will get better — and they’ll get better specifically because of the sacrifices everyone is making today,” said Michael R. Bloomberg, M.B.A. ’66, the former New York City mayor and founder of Bloomberg L.P and Bloomberg Philanthropies.,The weekly seminar, created by the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University under the umbrella of Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Coronavirus Local Response Initiative, began in mid-March to provide mayors with relevant, up-to-date information and best practices and presentations from experts in public health, crisis management, and other disciplines.At prior seminars, former President Bill Clinton emphasized the importance of providing accurate information to residents, while former President George W. Bush, M.B.A. ’75, said that during trying times it is vital that mayors, as the leaders people hear from most often, must deliver not only truth and empathy, but above all hope.“Mayors are on the front lines of battling the COVID-19 crisis: They are dealing with an unprecedented disruption of public life, severe economic damage, spikes in domestic violence, and deepening racial disparities in health outcomes and quality of life,” said Jorrit de Jong, senior lecturer in public policy and management at Harvard Kennedy School and faculty director of the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative. “Our sessions are designed to help them navigate these challenges, learn from each other, and receive reliable and actionable public health guidance.”Dr. Joshua Sharfstein of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health provided the latest nationwide data on the still rising trajectory of cases and discussed the coming importance of contact tracing to identify those who’ve been infected before cities reopen.With mayors facing mounting pressures to lift stay-at-home orders in the coming weeks, Tom Frieden, the former director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who oversaw the Obama administration’s Ebola response, said mayors will need to prioritize public health and take a host of bold new steps to prevent further outbreaks in their cities and ensure their affected citizens are receiving appropriate care and separated from those who are uninfected. That will require city officials to dramatically scale up public health teams to both care for and monitor this population, he said.Frieden, who now heads the global health nonprofit Resolve to Save Lives, said a major lesson from the Ebola epidemic is the key role local officials play. They are better situated than federal leaders to identify problem areas and allocate resources, as well as to communicate with their communities. Additionally, during the current pandemic they’ve often been called upon to take decisive action in response to the rapid spread of the virus. If, for instance, New York City had waited just two more days before urging residents to stay at home, the current death toll would be double, Frieden noted. Leadership on the front line On top of their other responsibilities, addressing the mental health needs of their communities, as well as their own, is fast becoming a critical part of the crisis response for mayors, and will remain one long after curfews are lifted and restaurants reopen.Kimberlyn Leary, associate professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School and an associate professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, said recent data shows that people of all ages and walks of life are facing an array of mental health difficulties sparked or worsened by the pandemic. They include anxiety about contracting COVID-19 or losing employment, loneliness from social-distancing practices, and profound grief or guilt over the abrupt loss of loved ones. Extended home confinement and stress has led to sharply escalating rates of domestic abuse or violence and drug overdoses.Leary said city leaders can help the public manage stress during this period by using their bully pulpits to promote available resources and lessen the stigma around mental health by acknowledging difficulties. They should speak not only about issues affecting the general public, including grief, but to the concerns affecting specific groups, such as African Americans, health care workers, or stressed-out parents. Mayors can also expand services and capacity wherever possible, and partner with non-government organizations that offer services.But most importantly, they can, and ought to, lead by example by being mindful of their own mental health needs and caring for them by whatever means works best for them — whether it’s exercise, yoga, talk therapy, naps, or something else.last_img read more

Israeli military chief warns of new plans to strike Iran

first_imgTEL AVIV (AP) — Israel’s military chief is warning the U.S. against rejoining the Iran nuclear deal even if the Biden administration succeeds in toughening it. Lt. Gen. Aviv Kohavi also told a think tank in Tel Aviv on Tuesday he’s ordered his forces to step up preparations for possible offensive action against Iran during the coming year. Kohavi says rejoining the deal would be a “bad mistake” strategically and operationally because the deal would again allow Iran to enrich uranium and spark nuclear proliferation across the Middle East. Under President Trump, the U.S. withdrew from the 2015 nuclear accord, a move supported by Israel’s leaders.last_img

Adam Chanler-Berat & More to Join Phillipa Soo in Amelie

first_img Related Shows Broadway alum Adam Chanler-Berat (Peter and the Starcatcher) and more will join the previously announced Tony nominee Phillipa Soo in the musical adaptation of Amélie. The tuner is scheduled to play a limited pre-Broadway engagement December 4 through January 16, 2017 at L.A.’s Ahmanson Theatre and is aiming to land on the Main Stem in the spring of 2017.The cast will also include Emily Afton, Alyse Alan Louis, David Andino, Randy Blair, Heath Calvert, Alison Cimmet, Savvy Crawford, Manoel Felciano, Harriett D. Foy, Maria-Christina Oliveras, Tony Sheldon, Jacob Keith Watson and Paul Whitty.Directed by Pam MacKinnon and based on the 2001 French film, Amélie features music by Daniel Messé, lyrics by Nathan Tysen and Messé, along with a book by Craig Lucas. The musical follows the journey of the inquisitive and shy Amélie (Soo) who turns the streets of Montmartre into a world of her own imagining, while secretly orchestrating moments of joy for those around her. After discovering a mysterious photo album and meeting a handsome stranger, Amélie realizes that helping others is easier than participating in a romantic story of her own.Samantha Barks previously led the world premiere of Amélie at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre opposite Chanler-Berat last year.

Two years ago, during just one week, the library collected more than six tons of food items for local food pantries. Last year in conjunction with other Monmouth County departments and as part of National County Government Month, the library expanded its Food for Fines program for the entire month of April. This year the program ran through April again.last_img read more

Darwin Party’s Hot Air Machine Never Stops

first_imgby David F. CoppedgeAudio Playerhttps://crev.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Coppedge-20170602-DarwinHotAir.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Do Darwinians ever tire of dishing out vacuous, airy stories about things? Never; with creationists grabbing headlines, they just turn up the heat.Empirical observations are like props on a stage to Darwinians. The play is the thing; the narrative must go on, with or without props. A variety of recent news articles shows Darwinians making up stories out of thin air, using pictures of bones or strata or modern animals that have nothing necessarily to do with the narrative. It gives the public an impression that the data are driving the story, when in actuality, the opposite is the case. And when data are missing entirely, artwork or imagination can fill in the gap – or assertions that are plain lies.How dinosaurs may have evolved into birds (Phys.org). The operative words are, “may have.” This article begins, “Studies of dinosaur fossils that show bird-like traits, such as feathers, light bones, air sacs and three-digit forelimbs, clarified the evolutionary kinship of birds and dinosaurs.” The example they show, however, is the bird Microraptor gui, which had feathered wings and legs and flew. It was a bird, not a dinosaur. A corrected version of the headline should say, “How birds may have evolved into birds.” But that wouldn’t fit the narrative. So on they go, using irrelevant genes as props to weave a tale about how hopping lizards evolved powered flight (see 5/22/17). Don’t worry about the names of the genes. Watch how they are used:Because the ASHCEs in genes such as Sim1 were highly conserved and therefore largely unchanged by evolution since the dinosaur era, this suggests CREs such as ASHCEs were vital in developing bird-specific traits and may have driven the transition of dinosaurs to birds.The genes distract attention from the question of how random changes in a code would generate major functional innovations.  The genes they cite didn’t even change. Something had to change to make a dinosaur flap new wings into the sky. What was it?“You don’t just partly fly, because flight requires not just having a pair of wings, but having your entire biology coordinated towards that function.” —Paul NelsonAccording to Darwinian theory, random mutations in dinosaur DNA led to powered flight. But that’s a huge amount of change! “You don’t just partly fly,” Paul Nelson quipped in the Illustra Media documentary, Flight: The Genius of Birds, “because flight requires not just having a pair of wings, but having your entire biology coordinated towards that function.” Saying that random changes “may have driven” a dinosaur to become a bird is like saying that random changes can turn a wagon into a guided drone — no intelligence required.Whales only recently evolved into giants when changing ice, oceans concentrated prey (Phys.org). In this article, the Smithsonian claims that ice ages made whales grow big. According to the Darwin-drenched fossil dating scheme, the giant whales only came into existence recently. Here’s the story, which presumes evolution without demonstrating it. Watch for the storytelling words like suggest, somehow, and imagine:The research team traced the discrepancy back to a shift in the way body size evolved that occurred about 4.5 million years ago. Not only did whales with bodies longer than 10 meters (approximately 33 feet) begin to evolve around this time, but smaller species of whales also began to disappear. Pyenson notes that larger whales appeared in several different lineages around the same time, suggesting that massive size was somehow advantageous during that timeframe.“We might imagine that whales just gradually got bigger over time, as if by chance, and perhaps that could explain how these whales became so massive,” said Slater, a former Peter Buck postdoctoral fellow at the museum. “But our analyses show that this idea doesn’t hold up—the only way that you can explain baleen whales becoming the giants they are today is if something changed in the recent past that created an incentive to be a giant and made it disadvantageous to be small.”While we might congratulate these evolutionists for backing away from chance, their replacement explanation makes no sense at all. How can animals understand an incentive? And why are there still small and medium-sized whales today? If this “incentive” were a law of nature, then every animal would evolve to giant size. Their prey, krill, could also evolve to become giants so that baleen whales couldn’t eat them. No matter what happens, the answer is the same: “it evolved.” The explanation is a distraction from the much larger issue: how did a four-footed land animal evolve into a creature that spends its entire life in the water? For the problems with that, you’ll have to watch Illustra Media’s documentary, Living Waters: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth.Darwin was right: Females prefer sex with good listeners (Phys.org). We reported May 31 that evolutionists have no explanation for the origin of sex. But given that sex does exist, now what? Eager to prove that her hero Darwin was right, Dr. Nerissa Hanink begins by singing his praises: “Almost 150 years after Charles Darwin first proposed a little-known prediction from his theory of sexual selection, researchers have found that male moths with larger antennae are better at detecting female signals.” Large antennae on moths are the props of her story. Hanink calls on experts who agree, one of them affirming that “Darwin’s theory of sexual selection is well supported by thousands of studies.” Supported, that is, except by the studies that do not, which we have covered often. For instance, peahens do not stare at the exotic feathers of male peacocks, as predicted by Darwin. But in the Darwin Party’s theater, no critics are allowed to interrupt the play.Well, what about those male antennae? Here’s her story line, told with a crescendo of enthusiasm, as she leans on the opinions of Australian biologist Mark Elgar:“But Darwin also proposed that sexual selection can favour males who are better at detecting and responding to signals from females, including chemical signals like pheromones. So males with sensory structures that can better detect female signals may have the edge in finding them in order to mate and pass on their genes.”But [Elgar] says this idea has been largely overlooked until now.Consider for a moment how surprising it is that Darwinians have had over 150 years to look at this, but they largely overlooked it until now. Why? It’s about time. Hanink looks at the research of a grad student, who conducted some tests, and did find that male moths with bigger antennae were able to detect smaller amounts of pheromone. Take time out to celebrate Darwin again: Take it away, Dr. Matthew Symonds:“Our data are consistent with Darwin’s 1871 prediction that sexual selection favours exaggerated sensory receptor structures like antennae,” says Dr Symonds.“As evolutionary biologists, it’s very rewarding to be able to support a long-standing idea, originally floated by Darwin, that hasn’t attracted much attention,” he says.Once again, ask if this is a law of nature. The title, remember, is that “males that are good listeners apparently make attractive mates.” If so, then men should have elephant ears, shouldn’t they? And big noses and huge eyes, to sense all the signals that women are sending out? And why are there any moths left with small antennae, after tens of millions of years of evolution? Is bigger always better? Evolution could have made existing antennae more sensitive without getting bigger, and the Darwin narrative would still work.Hanink extends the Darwin story further. She claims that females determine the size of male antennae. They choose to give off less pheromone, so that “high quality” males with bigger antennae will come to mate because they are more fit. But that is a non-sequitur. Carrying around large antennae is costly to the male. It could well be that it makes the male less fit. The moth with the smaller antennae could just follow the weight-encumbered male, and whiz by to get the female.These three examples show that, for Darwinians, empirical observations can become mere props to support a predetermined narrative. Without the props, the story works just as well, because whatever happened, “it evolved” — praise be to Charles Darwin. The evolutionary story distracts from the important questions, turning everyone’s eyes to all the sound and fury that signifies nothing, much like an air dancer that takes the driver’s eyes off the road.Video Playerhttps://crev.info/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/darwin-15-second.mp400:0000:0000:16Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Thanks to J.
