Staff morale at ‘all time low’, survey reveals

As you might expect from these results the sector has seen continued redundancies and half the respondents have been subject to pay freezes.This is the sixth year that Birdsong Consulting and Third Sector have run the Charity Pulse survey, and it shows the biggest drop in job satisfaction since it began. In previous years the interim findings have been fairly indicative of the final results.The survey is open until 13 April, and is open to anyone and everyone working for a UK charity.

The early feedback on the zero-trans fats oil from both the kitchen and the students is positive. During a field to table event hosted at Hillenbrand by Indiana Soybean Alliance and the United Soybean Board, Jack Kennedy, Purdue Executive Sous Chef graded the oil positively.“From a chef’s point of view it’s been fun. We really like the performance which has been great. Some of the product that we are serving today actually is with oil over 7 days old, and it’s just like we’re using fresh oil. Comparatively speaking, we find that some of the other oils are going to dissipate faster. They’re not going to last as long and they’re going to start smoking and get really dark and degrade.”Greg Minner, Director of Purdue Dining Services told HAT the testing of high oleic oil started right after spring break and will continue through the end of the semester. Sensory testing by students was done with the canola oil foods prior to spring break, and now that testing shifts to the foods cooked entirely in high oleic soybean oil.“Some comments from students already is that they like the taste and texture of the items that we’ve been deep frying. The sensory testing was mainly with French fries, which is probably one of the most popular items in the dining court. We ask does it taste the same, does it taste better? So I think we’re looking for those results to say yes, this is something we can look at for the future.”He said the cost of the oil will also determine its viability for future use. Testing and research on the oil is being done by United Soybean Board and Purdue Ag’s Department of Food Science.A number of farmers who grow the high oleic beans attended the event, including USB board member Mike Beard from Frankfort.“I get the warm fuzzy feeling when I come back to campus and get to talk to people about something I raise in my field that gets processed at the hometown processer.”David Rodibaugh has had a good experience growing the high oleic beans. He farms in Rensselaer.“I really believe in the program because it’s a much more healthy oil. I think it’s the coming thing, the thing we really need to do as farmers to meet the demand of consumers. Here we are reaching young consumers with the message of a better product that is developed through research.”He says the Purdue dining opportunity is a really good place to start in bringing the product to the public.last_img read more

State Fair a Place to Learn about Indiana Homegrown Food and…

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Indiana-Grown-storeWant to learn more about food and other products grown and produced in Indiana. A visit to the Indiana Grown store inside the Agriculture Horticulture Building at the Indiana State Fair reveals just about everything you can imagine is produced right here in the Hoosier state. The program manager for Indiana grown, Suzi Spahr says the selection of items for sale includes edible items, of course.“Your standard popcorn and some of your jams and jellies, but we also have some baked goods, toffee, candy, coffee that’s been roasted here in the state, and then a ton of different types of non-edibles,” she said. “Soaps, lotions that are all using agricultural products, be that mint or soybean oil in the products themselves.”She said each day at noon there are free cooking demonstrations on the stage. Want free samples? They have those also.“Throughout the day we have samples from Indiana Grown members who are sampling their products, and there’ll be somewhere between five and ten different members here every single day, so you can sample your product and then come into the store and buy it. Or you can just gain some information from those different folks about where to find local products in your area.”Items you can sample correspond to the featured commodity that day at the fair. For example, cheese is featured Friday and the cheese sculpture is also revealed Friday right next to the Indiana Grown Marketplace.Spahr tells HAT this is the first year Indiana State Department of Agriculture’s Indiana Grown program is managing the store, selling the member products for the members.More free samples are available at the Indiana Farm Bureau building. They serve free popcorn every day from noon to 5 p.m.The INFB Women’s Leadership Committee will host “Taste from Indiana Farms” in the Farm Bureau Building auditorium, August 15, 16 and 17 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fairgoers have the opportunity to sample free, locally-grown foods, served by Indiana farm families, and take home a collection of recipes from the event. This year’s featured foods are beef meatballs, cinnamon apple juice, cucumbers and pickles, pretzel snacks, ham slices, semi-sweet chocolate chips, pulled duck, vegetable juice, cheese cubes and lamb burgers.“We always look forward to opportunities to teach Hoosiers a little bit more about how their food is produced,” said Isabella Chism, INFB’s second vice president and Women’s Leadership Committee chair. “At ‘Taste’ visitors can sample the food we grow and interact with the farmers who grow it. It’s a great opportunity to get answers directly from the source and enjoy quality, homegrown foods.”INFB also hosts their Old-Fashioned Pancake Breakfast on Farmers Day, August 16, from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on Main Street. Pancakes, sausage and drinks are available for a $3 suggested donation to support the Indiana FFA Foundation.

RSF urges Bahraini authorities to let journalist travel abroad

first_img Organisation to go further July 1, 2016 RSF urges Bahraini authorities to let journalist travel abroad Reporters Without Borders (RSF) deplores the way the Bahraini authorities have stopped reporter Nazeeha Saeed from leaving the country twice in the past few days without giving any explanation and calls on them to allow her to travel. Tenth anniversary of Bahraini blogger’s arrest News “The authorities deny there is any ban on Nazeeha Saeed travelling abroad but the police have repeatedly prevented her from leaving without giving any grounds,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “We urge the authorities to explain themselves without delay.”The correspondent of France 24, Radio Monte-Carlo Doualiya and various pan-Arab media outlets such as the website Raseef22 and newspaper Al-Hayat, Nazeeha Saeed wanted to fly to Europe for a vacation early morning on 29 June but was turned back at Manama airport by a police officer who was unable to explain the reason for the ban.Accompanied by her lawyer, Hameed Al Mulla, she went to the immigration department, the public prosecutor’s office and the Criminal Investigation department (CID). At each place, officials denied the existence of any order forbidding her from travelling abroad.Nonetheless, when she tried to leave the later during the day by using King Fahd Causeway, which links the Island of Bahrain with the nearby Saudi mainland, she was again turned back. Who is responsible?“This situation is frustrating,” Saeed told RSF. “I am every worried. What is going to happen next?”Around 15 journalists and bloggers are currently detained in the Kingdom of Bahrain, which is ranked 162nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

GEEK TO ME: Troubleshooting wireless connections

first_img Jeff Werner is a software engineer and has been writing this column since 2007. Question: My HP laptop’s wireless connection frequently drops, sometimes after being in sleep mode; other times while using the Internet (and occasionally after “your internet connection is unstable” appears on my screen). All Windows and HP updates are current. I’ve tried changing power settings, checking for new device drivers, and disconnecting/reconnecting the modem and router. My internet security (McAfee LiveSafe) says no viruses. Any idea how to resolve this problem? BTW, our desktop computer is a wired ethernet connection; no problems with it. Thanks in advance.– Rory C.Niceville, FloridaAnswer: You’re welcome in advance, Rory, though you should probably save your gratitude until you see if I can actually help you with your problem.I’ve talked about Wi-Fi problems before, including the very subject about which you wrote-in: dropped connections. Let me quote myself from a prior issue (Geek Note: I.G.T.M. #631, August 25, 2019). Back then, the device was a Smart TV, but this is just as relevant today, and for a laptop, so don’t let the TV reference throw you.“Since your connectivity seems to be exclusively via Wi-Fi, my suspicion turns to radiometric interference that simply overwhelms the frequency that your equipment is using. Many items in the home generate radio frequency interference (RFI) on the same band your routers use. Microwave ovens, cordless phones, devices with electric motors such as vacuum cleaners, can all interfere with a Wi-Fi signal. The way to deal with this is to either change the frequency (if your router supports it) or relocate the router to be closer to the point of usage. The practicality of this solution will depend on your setup, and how much equipment and wiring will need to be relocated. If you can relocate the router nearer to the TV, you could completely eliminate connectivity issues by using a CAT5 cable instead of Wi-Fi.”As I mentioned in the above quote, and you alluded to in your question, wired connections are always more reliable than wireless. They are often faster, and usually more secure than Wi-Fi as well, since by their very nature and physical location, they are harder to “sniff” than a pool of radio waves that can’t be contained inside the walls of your home. I routinely pick up my neighbors’ Service Set Identifiers (SSIDs) on devices in my home, and I presume they see mine, since I can use my Wi-Fi out in the yard, across the street, and even down the block on occasion during the Christmas light show season. My point is, if your home network is set up in such a way that it’s feasible to connect over a wire, rather than wirelessly, that’s what I recommend in almost every case, and that would be a good way to solve this issue.If not, then there are further points for you to ponder. Most importantly, is this laptop the only device that’s having issues? No smartphones, pad devices, or Internet of Things (IOT) devices, such as smart doorbells, IP cameras, etc. have the problem? If it’s endemic to that one laptop, and you can eliminate the aforementioned RFI as a source of the problem, then you may have something wrong with your configuration, despite your belief that you have all the latest drivers and Windows updates. Your system might also have malware that your McAfee software can’t find.By a large margin, these few tips don’t cover every conceivable cause of your problem. You might have a bad, or questionable cable in your network, that can cause this problem. Your router, or the PC itself could have age-related issues, and is simply wearing out. If you have multiple people in your home using large amounts of bandwidth simultaneously and you don’t have adequate Internet speed, that could be overwhelming your system, and causing the dropouts. For example, that message you cited? The only program I know of that generates that particular message is the Zoom teleconferencing software. If someone is on Zoom and at the same time someone else is streaming a movie, while someone else is online gaming, that takes a lot of bandwidth.There are so many different things that can cause a wireless connection to drop, that there’s no way I can possibly cover them here. I found an online article for you that does a pretty good job of providing some solutions.

Adorable 2-year-old stands in for his Marine brother in viral prom photos

first_imgTwitter/@idk_skylar(NEW YORK CITY) — A little boy was invited to pose in an adorable photo shoot last week after his brother was unable to attend a high school prom with his girlfriend.Clay Moak Jr., 2, took photos with his older brother’s girlfriend, Skylar Fontaine, 18, on March 16. Clay’s brother, Gage Moak, 19, is a Marine and is away at training for his Military Occupational Specialty (MOS), 1,000 miles away.“At first I was upset, but I am willing to deal with the distance and him being away because he is the one who is away from all of his family and making the ultimate sacrifice,” Fontaine of Louisiana, wrote in a statement to ABC News. “Clay is so sweet and always greets me with a hug. I’ve watched him grow up and I love him so much! He wants to be just like his big brother.”Fontaine said it was her idea to take prom photos with Clay, but his grandmother obtained the toddler’s tuxedo and Marine costume.Although Clay did not attend the actual dance, his mom Brandy Moak told ABC News that the pictures made him smile.“We went and got his haircut and he was all excited,” the mom said. “It was cute. It was adorable.”Fontaine posted the images on her Twitter page March 16, where it received over 43,000 retweets.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Fresh Kitchen: learning experience for Sainsbury’s

first_imgSainsbury’s has confirmed it has closed its concept food shop Fresh Kitchen in London, following a year-long trial.The takeaway shop, which sold everything from sandwiches, pastries and wraps to soups, curries, and salads, opened in January last year, and looked set to heat up competition in the lunchtime market. A spokesperson for Sainsbury’s said the retailer had learnt a lot from the trial, such as what the ideal footprint should be, “and we don’t want to compromise on either quality or service by staying in the Fleet Street store”.There was no seating at the store and Sainsbury’s branding was kept to a minimum, with the shop instead highlighting the fact that products were freshly prepared on-site.At the time of the launch last year, Sainsbury’s remained tight-lipped on whether the brand would be rolled out nationally or would appear in its supermarkets, although it did say “watch this space”.“While we may come back to the high street in the future with a bigger and slightly different offering, we are not going to renew the lease for the current store,” said the spokesperson. David Gray, UK retail analyst, Planet Retail, said one of the key points was that the outlet was much smaller than Sainsbury’s was used to operating. “However Sainsbury’s has said it may consider launching a slightly larger outlet in the future,” said Gray. “Location-wise, it was also quite difficult, as there was a lot of competition from well-established sandwich chains.”Gray also questioned its development of a Fresh Kitchen own-brand label, and said he personally would have used the strong Sainsbury’s brand in the outlet. “Sainsbury’s has got a very strong brand. In the past few years, especially, it has really come into its own, with the continued focus on value. It has done a fantastic job in marketing own-label products. Even with the Basics range, it has certain values behind it,” he said.On the positive side, he believed the retailer would take the insights learned from the trial and apply them elsewhere in stores, perhaps by widening its hot food offering in Sainsbury’s Local outlets.Gray added that one of the factors behind Sainsbury’s success could be its focus on food, which he thinks they will maintain. In comparison to retailers like Tesco, Sainsbury’s food/non-food ratio is much greater.>>Sainsbury’s new concept takes on takeaway marketlast_img read more
