Jacob’s take on flatbreads

first_imgJacob’s Flatbreads, a new range of savoury biscuits designed to make flatbreads more appealing, has been launched by United Biscuits. The product comes in Salt & Cracked Black Pepper and Mixed Seeds varieties in 150g packs with an RSP of £1.42. The flatbreads contain no artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives. Packs feature Jacob’s orange packaging, while the product can be seen through a large window on the front.Victoria Gregory, brand director, savoury biscuits, said: “Consumers have traditionally perceived flatbreads to be a very premium product and this has prevented them from gaining mass appeal. But the flatbread sub-category is worth £5m. We feel Jacob’s is the right brand to make flatbreads more mainstream, recruit new consumers and increase the purchase frequency of those already buying flatbreads.”last_img read more

Mac Operating System: A Revolution in Computer World

first_imgThis is the operating system that runs on Macintosh computers. It is pronounced, “mack-oh-es.” The Mac OS has been around since the first Macintosh was introduced in 1984. Since then, it has been continually updated and many new features have been added to it. Each major OS release is signified by a new number (i.e. Mac OS 8, Mac OS 9).In 1994, Apple introduced the PowerMacs, which used the higher-performance PowerPC chip designed by Apple, Motorola and IBM. PowerMacs run native PowerPC applications and emulate traditional Mac 680×0 applications. PowerPC chips have enjoyed substantial increases in performance over the years.The Mac came out in 1984, three years after the DOS-based PC. Its graphical interface was more intuitive than DOS commands, and it avoided the technical quagmire that arose when DOS users tried to add a new device to their PCs.The graphical user interface (GUI) was actually developed by Xerox and introduced on its Star workstation in 1981. Apple borrowed heavily from the Star, and subsequently, others copied the Mac, moving the GUI down the line to Windows, OS/2 and UNIX.This is the operating system that runs on Macintosh computers. It is pronounced, “mack-oh-es.” The Mac OS has been around since the first Macintosh was introduced in 1984. Since then, it has been continually updated and many new features have been added to it. Each major OS release is signified by a new number (i.e. Mac OS 8, Mac OS 9).Since the core of the Mac OS was nearly decades old, Apple decided to completely revamp the operating system. In March of 2001, Apple introduced a completely new version of the Mac OS that was written from the ground up. The company dubbed it “Mac OS X,” correctly pronounced “Mac OS 10.” Unlike earlier versions of the Mac OS, Mac OS X is based on the same kernel as Unix and has many advanced administrative features and utilities. Though the operating system is much more advanced than earlier versions of the Mac OS, it still has the same ease-of-use that people have come to expect from Apple software.The Macintosh interface was immediately popular with non-technical people. Instead of typing in a command to delete a file as in DOS, you could drag it to the on-screen trashcan. Although common today, it was a breakthrough to have such capability on a personal computer in the 1980s.Unlike the PC, the Mac is Apple’s proprietary technology, and except for a brief period, Apple prevented a Macintosh clone industry from developing and growing (see Macintosh parts). Apple maintained its sole source vendor status while the PC industry had thousands of vendors.Are you looking for the latest gear at discounted prices now?

Seaford Man Accused of Defrauding Investors

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A federal grand jury has indicted a Seaford man on charges that he allegedly defrauded investors out of $500,000 while he worked as chief compliance officer of a Woodbury-based brokerage firm.William Michael Quigley was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering. He is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at Central Islip federal court.“Rather than use his training and expertise to protect these investors who were told that their money would be invested in well-known U.S. companies and funds, Quigley helped his co-conspirators steal the funds by transferring them to the Philippines and using them for his personal use,” said Kelly Currie, acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.Authorities said the 47-year-old man and his alleged co-conspirators told overseas investors that they were registered brokers and that they would invest the victims’ money in companies and investment funds such as Dell, Berkshire Hathaway and BlackRock.But Quigley and his alleged co-conspirators were not registered brokers. Instead of investing the money, they opened several bank accounts in New York where they transferred more than $500,000 of the $800,000 funds to other accounts in the Philippines, according to investigators.Quigley allegedly used some of the money to pay for trips. If convicted, Quigley faces up to 20 years in prison.last_img read more

Trans law change won’t happen before election, Internal Affairs Minister Tracey Martin says

first_imgNZ Herald 23 June 2020Family First Comment: By choosing your own gender in your birth certificate, the certificates will become an object of unscientific gender ideology and effectively tell medical professionals that they got it wrong at time of birth. Circumstances may change but a historical document should not be able to be changed. It is disturbing that some politicians want to ignore biological reality and, in the process, bring about confusion and ambiguity. A birth certificate is a historical record based on fact – not a political tool to further an ideology.A law change which would have made it easier for trans people to change their gender on official documents has fallen off the Government’s agenda.But the minister in charge of the law change, Tracey Martin, says investigations have found that many of the hurdles for trans people do not require a law change.A working group had found it was possible, but not widely known, that people could change their birth certificate without attending court and without undergoing invasive medical procedures.Martin, the Internal Affairs Minister, confirmed to the Herald that there would be no law change this Parliamentary term.“It’s still on pause. Due to Covid and the complications around it, it’s very unlikely it is going to move forward prior to the election.”It would have allowed trans people to change gender on their birth certificate by signing a statutory declaration. That would be far easier and more accessible than the existing system, which required people to apply to the Family Court and present medical evidence showing they had changed their physical attributes.The bill was controversially deferred last February. The Government said at the time that it had not been properly consulted on, because the changes relating to self-identification were added after the public consultation phase.It also said the potential ramifications of the change had not been fully considered, such as what it would mean for women’s spaces like single sex schools, prisons and refuges. A select committee had already found that the change would not do any harm, but the Government wanted more advice and consultation on the issue.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12342309Big Read: A matter of identityNZ Herald 21 December 2018A law change for trans people to change the gender on their birth certificates was tantalising close before it was pulled at the last minute following furious debate.But the change also has its critics, including conservative and religious groups such as Family First and some feminist groups who believe not enough thought has gone into the consequences of such a move on women’s-only spaces, such as prisons and women’s refuges.They also raise the prospect of imposters — men who falsely change their gender not because they identify as women but solely to gain access to women or to a place reserved for women.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12180576last_img read more

Search Warrant Nets Drugs, Four Arrests, In Decatur County

first_imgA search warrant executed at a house on North West Street in Greensburg netted a quantity of methamphetamines and four arrests, according to Greensburg Police Chief Stacey Chasteen.Greensburg Police Detectives received information in March that Michael Keihn Jr. was involved in manufacturing and dealing of methamphetamines in the Decatur County area.As detectives continued the investigation they learned that Keihn and Keelie Allen were in a relationship and Andrew Hacker was an alleged criminal associate of Keihn’s.Chasteen said the search warrant was issued on September 26 and executed the following day.The search warrant led police to locating a quantity in excess of three grams of methamphetamines.

Poyet: Money can’t buy derby joy

first_imgGus Poyet says that even the richest man in the world could not buy the derby joy he and his Sunderland side experienced on Sunday. The Black Cats claimed a fourth successive victory over arch-rivals Newcastle and their third on the trot at St James’ Park at the weekend to leave Wearside wreathed in smiles and the men who secured it experiencing “unique” emotions. Poyet revealed even a post-match warm-down and an enforced prolonged stay on Tyneside could not spoil the party. He said: “I know how much it means. We scored and we went ballistic and it was difficult to control the bench – imagine how much it means for them (the fans), who have been supporting this club all their lives? “It was special. It’s so special that it doesn’t matter how long you have to stay at the ground, because we were held for a while. Normally you would have every single player complaining, ‘Let’s go’. “Nobody complained, everybody was all right, everything changed. Even if you say to them to go and do a warm-down and they need to go back to the pitch, it was no problem this time. “It’s unique, it’s the best part of football. It’s not about money. I’m sure that the biggest multi-millionaire in the world would pay whatever money it takes to be part of that moment. “And you know what? He can’t because you need to be a football player or be involved in football to be there and feel it. It’s not about money, it’s about being good enough.” Poyet, who was installed as the club’s new head coach in October last year, boasts a 100 per cent record in his three derbies to date having quickly gleaned just how important those games are to two clubs and their respective fans. The win was just Sunderland’s third in the Barclays Premier League in 17 attempts this season and while Poyet will now turn his attention to the Boxing Day clash with struggling Hull and the business of putting together back-to-back victories, he knows just what their latest success means to the supporters. He said: “I’ll tell you what, when you come here you know you need to win one or two games, especially these ones, and the times you win them, there is no better. “I don’t think they care too much about the rest, the fans, they just care about this one, and it’s great to be on this side of it. There is no better feeling. “Now we are already somehow thinking ‘can we go one better when we play at the Stadium of Light?’ Every single game now between us and Newcastle is going to be bigger because of that record.” Sunday’s victory was all the more impressive as it came after Anthony Reveillere, the club’s only fit specialist left-back, limped out of the warm-up with a calf injury, although one which has proved to be not as serious as was first feared. Poyet said: “It’s an injury, but it’s a muscle tear. We were really worried because of the translation of what he felt, we were thinking it was something really bad. “But in the end, it’s just a tear and the normal time would be between three and four weeks. It’s not lucky that he’s injured, but we feared the worst, so it’s not that bad.” Hugely-experienced skipper John O’Shea was asked to step out of central defence to plug the gap, and he performed his role with aplomb to win fresh praise from Poyet. The Uruguayan said: “Experience, understanding, composure – it’s great to have him. That’s why he’s the skipper. You don’t pick them just by luck, you know what you need and it was easy.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Millions granted to eradicate Zika in Florida

first_imgJackeline, 26, holds her son who is 4-months old and born with microcephaly, in front of their house in Olinda, near Recife, Brazil, February 11, 2016. Recent laboratory analyses identified Zika virus infections in three people who died in Brazil last year, the health ministry said on Thursday, although authorities could not confirm that Zika alone was responsible for their deaths. REUTERS/Nacho Doce TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY – RTX26KIR Adhering to the state commitment to eradicate Zika virus from Florida, Governor Rick Scott announced $25 million in grants for further research into the mosquito borne virus, and the development of a vaccine to counter the disease.Making the announcement on Wednesday, Scott indicated the funding is being broken down into 34 grants being made to 10 Florida universities and research institutions.The largest grant of $13 million is being awarded to the University of Miami to develop Zika testing methodology, a Zika vaccine development, and research the effect that the virus has on pregnant women and their babies.Last year a rash of locally contracted mosquito-borne Zika virus cases broke out in Miami-Dade County mainly in the Wynwood community, and on Miami Beach. The break out of the disease resulted in the Florida Department of Health (FDH) and the Centers for Disease (CDC) declaring the respective regions Zika contamination zones. The declarations were accompanied by nationwide warnings, especially to pregnant women, cautioning travel to these areas.Months later, Governor Scott and the FDH lifted the restrictions as for weeks there were no new cases. However, the FDH and CDC cautioned South Floridians to remain alert against new local contaminated cases especially when the rainy season arrives. Governor Scott also gave assurances the state would provide the necessary funding to treat and eliminate the virus.Referring to the new grants, Dr. Celeste Philip, Florida Surgeon General said the state cannot afford to relax its efforts to fight the Zika virus during the current dry season when mosquitoes are not prevalent.The grant to the UM goes directly to the infectious diseases division at UM’s Miller School of Medicine.The head of the division, Mario Stevenson regard the grants as a “big deal” and an asset in funding Zika related studies being hindered by funding challenges. He said together with developing cures for the virus, the division will be able to better focus on why the diseases is specifically impactful to pregnant women and their babies.Other recipients of state grant funding include Florida Atlantic, Florida International and Florida State universities, the Moffitt Cancer Center and Scripps Research Institute.The 2017/18 budget proposed by Governor Scott also includes $2.9 billion to be allocated to the FDH to employ more scientists and conduct further research into the Zika virus.last_img read more

Vybz Kartel appeal set for February

first_imgThe Court of Appeal in Jamaica will begin hearing arguments from attorneys representing imprisoned dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel and his three co-accused on February 19 next year.Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer; Kahira Jones; Andre St John; and entertainer Shawn “Shawn Storm” Campbell were granted leave to appeal their conviction and sentence in the Court of Appeal in March of this year.They were sentenced to life behind bars by Justice Lennox Campbell in the High Court for their involvement in the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams. Evidence was tendered in court that Williams was mauled to death in a house owned by Vybz Kartel and his body disposed of.Williams’ remains have never been found.Vybz Kartel will be eligible for parole after serving 35 years, St John must serve 30 years, while Campbell and Jones will have to serve 25 years before being eligible for parole.The lawyers intend to argue that Justice Campbell erred in his instructions to the jury and that their clients were not given a fair trial.Audio-visual evidence and the eyewitness testimony of their former crony helped the prosecution to successfully argue that Williams was murdered after two illegal guns went missing.last_img read more
