Charities back CASH in latest anti-salt campaign

first_imgPressure on plant bakers to cut salt levels in their products is set to intensify next week, as charities join the campaign highligh-ting links between salt intake and health problems, including stomach cancer, osteoporosis, kidney disease and obesity.Lobby group Consensus Action on Salt and Health (CASH) has long publicised the increased risks of high blood pressure and stroke from a high-salt diet, with bread a regular target for criticism. But during Salt Awareness Week (February 1-7) the group plans to widen its focus to other headline-grabbing ailments linked to salt. For the first time, 10 leading charities including Cancer Research, the National Obesity Forum, Asthma UK, Diabetes UK and the National Osteoporosis Society are backing the campaign, along with previous supporters The British Heart Foundation and the Blood Pressure Association.”By working with so many high-profile charities, we hope to raise awareness about the dangers of eating too much salt. This will put added pressure on manufacturers to cut sodium levels,” said Katharine Jenner, nutritionist and CASH campaign manager. “Bread is still the largest contributor of salt to people’s diets and while some firms have taken huge steps to reduce salt levels, others lag behind. Unfortunately, this tends to be the major brands.”Gordon Polson, director of the Federation of Bakers, responded: “Plant bakers have met the Food Standards Agency’s (FSA) 2010 salt targets and are looking to reduce salt further. CASH is choosing to ignore research, which has been accepted by the FSA, that reducing salt levels further is technically very challenging for premium breads.”As part of National Salt Awareness Week, CASH is organising a lunchtime reception at the House of Commons on February 3, with speeches from Minister for Public Health Gillian Merron and Tim Smith, chief executive of the Food Standards Agency. CASH has also developed free posters and information leaflets for dietitians, nurses, health centres, gyms and schools.last_img read more

Foursomes wins provide early advantage

first_img Gloucestershire’s top pair of Alex Saunders and Ffion Tynan won four of the first holes and polished off their game 6/5. But the other two games were decided on the 18th.  Gloucestershire, Buckinghamshire and Yorkshire took the early advantage in the second day matches at Women’s County Finals at Felixstowe Ferry, Suffolk.  All three won their foursomes with defending champions Gloucestershire beating Hampshire 2-1 in the top game; Buckinghamshire defeating Suffolk, also 2-1; and Yorkshire winning 2.5-0.5 in their match against Nottinghamshire.  Click here for full scores Nottinghamshire’s Rachel Boulton and Libby Kilbride found the first chink in Yorkshire’s armour when they snatched a half in the top game. They were one down playing the last but, thanks to Kilbride’s mastery of the slopes on a daunting putt, they won the hole with a par. 19 Sep 2017 Foursomes wins provide early advantage Yorkshire’s Hannah Holden and Charlotte Heath were the first to put their point on the board, playing confidently to a 4/3 win, but the other two games were tight battles. Buckinghamshire’s Victoria Bryan and Thalia Kirby were also quick starters and won on the 13th while Alice Koslowski and Georgina Bowers were always in charge and claimed their point 3/2. But Suffolk’s Lils James and Abbie Symonds won 5/3 to keep the hosts in touch going in to the singles.  Hampshire had suffered a whitewash yesterday but Kerry Smith and Adrian Mylrea ensured there would be no repeat today when they took the team’s first point, winning 1 up.  However, Gloucestershire’s Ebonie Lewis and Grace Connelly came up the 18th 1up and held on to their slender advantage with a solid par.  Behind them, Olivia Winning and Megan Lockett birdied the 16th to get ahead in an extremely close game and then won the 17th to take their point.  Tags: competitions, English Women’s County Finalslast_img read more

Titans at Steelers: Keys to Victory

first_imgIt’s here. The 2013 season is upon us and it opens up on Sunday afternoon when the Steelers host the Titans. The black and gold is a team in transition and their true potential is unknown. They have the luxury of opening up against an weaker opponent at home and ideally getting the season off on the right foot.Here are the keys to a Steeler Victory:1. They must stop Chris Johnson and the Titan ground attack. They need to put the ball in Jake Locker’s hands and force him to beat them.2. The Steelers will need to avoid the costly mistakes that cost them games in 2012. They can’t’ have stupid penalties, a plethora of turnovers or any missed routes or assignments.3. The black and gold must establish an offensive rhythm. They can’t have multiple 3 and out situations. They will need to find a happy balance between running the football and throwing it as well as a happy balance between short, medium and long passes. They need to avoid the pitfall of relying on one particular set of plays.4. The team will not want to allow the Titans to hang around and keep confidence. When you’re better than a team, the last thing you need to do is allow them to stay in the game. The Steelers must step on the Titans throat early and eliminate any confidence they have. The black and gold need to be the bully.Here are a few things to watch for this week:1. Jarvis Jones-The Steelers first round pick looked good all summer long. How will he look when the real games start? I expect greatness out of this kid.2. Markus Wheaton-Here’s another rookie who could make a big impact. He’s not a starter, yet, but he can be a game changer and it could show this week.3. Isaac Redman-He once again is the starting running back. Will he seize the opportunity or let it slip away?4. Big Ben-He’s been doing this for 10 years now and most of the guys on this team are younger than him by several years. Will he continue to grow as a leader and help bring this team together?

Ohio Ag Weather Forecast September 23, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A frontal boundary is working through the state today, and will bring good moisture to 80% of the state. WE expect rain totals to be .25″-.75″. Action will be done by late afternoon/evening, and we clear out overnight. This front will be by far the best organized round of moisture over the next 10 days.Sunny and dry tomorrow, then partly sunny on Wednesday. Temps will be normal to slightly above normal, but not even remotely close to the warmth of this past weekend. Overnight Wednesday night through midday Thursday we have to keep an eye out for a few scattered showers. These will have potential for only a few hundredths to .3″ and only 70% coverage. Most of that will be in the norther half of the state, but we wont rule it out in other areas.Dry to finish the week next week, next weekend and through Monday the 30th. Temps will continue to be mostly normal to a bit above.A front next Tuesday (1st) through Wednesday (2nd) has the potential for scattered showers from I-70 north. This is a slow, sagging front, but it does not have an inordinate amount of moisture with it…so rains are not that impressive. A few hundredths to .4″ look to be the most likely totals for the time being. Coverage will be 70% from I-70 north.10 day rain potentialThe extended period shows cooler air headed toward the region and slightly more frequent chances of moisture. However, we still only see one well organized, strong front, and that is likely early in the 11-16 day window, around Thursday the 3rd into early Friday the 4th.last_img read more

What It Takes to Produce Higher Quality

first_imgQuality = Investment + Time + EffortQuality requires a greater investment. Quality costs more to produce. If you start with cheap, poor quality inputs, you automatically end up with poor quality outputs. It costs a good bit more to begin with higher quality inputs, but the result is something worth more on the other end.What investments do you make in inputs?Quality takes more time. If you want to produce excellent work, a craftsman’s quality work, you have to put in the hours. In a world where we expect everything we want immediately delivered to our doorstep–even if it requires a drone–the focus on quality is in retreat. Taking your time, measuring twice, and making the necessary adjustments improves quality. If your goal is this quarter’s results, you might decide to go faster. If your goal is a lasting relationship, speed kills.Are you putting in the time necessary to produce something of a higher quality?Quality is more difficult to produce. It takes more effort and more energy to produce something of a higher quality. For most of us, after time, this where we have the greatest control when it comes to quality. It takes more energy to give yourself over to the task in front of you. It take more effort to produce bigger results. But the resulting improvement in quality is worth paying for (at least for your dream clients, those who perceive the value).Are you pouring your effort and energy into producing something of a higher quality?You might think this is about your product, your service, or your solution. It’s more than that.last_img read more

We wanted to get at them and show them that we were better in the second half.“We did that after the break and we won the half.
