Kingsmill’s smooth style

first_imgAllied Bakeries has launched a range of seeded Kingsmill loaves, including a smooth seeded loaf the first in the UK, according to the firm. The three lines: The Secretly Seeded One, The Lightly Seeded One, and The Really Seeded One, will be rolled out across the UK this month.Kingsmill hopes the new lines will enable it to capitalise on the growing trend for seeded bread. The new products will be backed by a £700,000 marketing campaign and price promotions to drive awareness and trial of the range, said Kingsmill. They have been developed following market research that pointed to the fact that a number of different consumer groups would like to enjoy the benefits of seeded bread but without the bits. The Secretly Seeded One is smooth, but contains finely milled seeds and grains (maize, millet and golden linseed), while The Lightly Seeded One features a sprinkling of seeds and grains, and The Really Seeded One contains a generous portion of mixed seeds and grain.last_img read more

Bureau says UDAAP clarity is coming

first_imgBureau of Consumer Financial Protection (previously the CFPB) Acting Director Mick Mulvaney said the bureau is working on a rulemaking to better clarify its definition of unfair, deceptive or abusive acts or practices (UDAAP). NAFCU has long advocated for the bureau to issue specific guidance on prohibited practices so financial institutions have more clarity.“Regulation by enforcement is the equivalent of playing Guess Who for financial institutions,” said NAFCU Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and General Counsel Carrie Hunt. “To effectively and properly serve consumers, credit unions need clarity and consistency in the laws and regulations they are required to follow. Otherwise, credit unions as well as all financial institutions, will be left spinning their wheels trying to keep up with evasive and ever-fleeting regulatory checkpoints. The bureau’s decision to clearly define what practices qualify as ‘abusive’ under its UDAAP authority is long overdue and will go a long way towards ensuring smart and effective regulation. We thank Acting Director Mulvaney for his efforts.”Mulvaney delivered the news Monday during the Mortgage Bankers Association’s annual conference.The Dodd-Frank Act provides broad definitions of prohibited behaviors under UDAAP and gives the bureau primary rulemaking authority over the standard. In the past, financial institutions generally had to rely on individual enforcement actions to define what “abusive” meant. However, during his comments, Mulvaney said “regulation by enforcement is done.” He added that the bureau will continue with its investigations and bring lawsuits based on alleged rule violations. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

5-year Anniversary of Long Island Serial Killer Case Brings Fresh Look

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Five years ago Sunday, Suffolk County police found the bodies of three women in Gilgo Beach days after finding another there, with six more sets of human remains found nearby months later.The anniversary comes as the police department is undergoing a change in leadership that recently announced plans to work more closely with the FBI on the so-called Long Island Serial Killer case. The announcement came a month after the re-arrest of a man who authorities described as a pimp for one of the first four women found—all online escorts in their 20s.“It’s often times that cases get solved when you combine the knowledge and expertise of the local police department with our federal law enforcement partners,” Timothy Sini, a former federal prosecutor recently appointed as deputy Suffolk police commissioner, told reporters Thursday during a news conference at police headquarters in Yaphank. “The FBI…has resources that they can bring to the table. They have expertise in serial murder cases.”Related Story: Red Herrings Among Tips in Serial Killer CaseSuffolk County District Attorney Tom Spota has said that three or more killers may be responsible for separately dumping the 10 sets of remains—half of whom remain unidentified—along Ocean Parkway between Cedar Beach and Jones Beach State Park. Ex-Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer publicly theorized that one killer is responsible for all 10 bodies. But Sini declined to discuss theories, investigative techniques or whether there are any suspects in the case.The deputy commissioner was recently nominated by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone to replace outgoing Suffolk Police Commissioner Edward Webber, who announced his retirement last month and just weeks after ex-Chief of Department James Burke resigned shortly before Burke was arrested on federal charges of beating a suspect and covering it up.During the Burke-Webber regime, Suffolk police had removed three detectives from the FBI’s Long Island Gang Task Force, raising questions about the level of cooperation between the department and federal investigators. Asked if the department also had wavered in working with the FBI on the Gilgo case—beyond federal investigators helping in 2011 with a massive sweep of the barrier island where the bodies were found—Sini again declined to comment.Related Story: Chronology of a Mystery“They will be playing a more active and prominent role,” he said of the FBI moving forward.John Ray of the Miller Place-based law firm of Ray, Mitev & Associates, the lawyer for the family of Shannan Gilbert, a sex worker who police were looking for when they found the other remains, reiterated that he has evidence he wants to share with investigators.“I renew my ardent request that the U.S. Attorney and the FBI take over this investigation immediately,” Ray wrote in a letter to authorities. “I do so now because the indictment of…Burke appears to have removed any impediment to an open investigation.”Police have said they believe Gilbert drowned in a marsh in Oak Beach while fleeing a client’s home, but her mother and Ray suspect that she was murdered.And on Saturday, the New York Post cited an anonymous FBI source as saying that Burke refused to keep federal investigators in the loop on the Gilgo probe because he knew that he was under investigation by the feds.Although there have been no arrests for the murders, 26-year-old Akeem Cruz, who was convicted of pimping Megan Waterman of Maine—one of the four women found in Gilgo in December 2010—was arrested in Maine last month on a charge of driving with a suspended license, according to the Portland Press Herald. The newspaper also reported that Cruz has a warrant for his arrest for failure to appear in court in New York for an alleged probation violation. He is not suspected of being involved in Waterman’s death.Will deputy commissioner Sini’s promises to take a “fresh look” at the case and bring in federal reinforcements lead to an arrest in the case? Stay tuned.last_img read more

Epic Games Gets Apple’s Theft Claim Knocked Out of Fortnite Fight

first_imgEpic Games on Tuesday won the dismissal of two Apple’s tort claims in a dispute over access to its popular video game Fortnite on the iPhone maker’s App Store.The battle between Apple and Epic focuses on a share of purchases in Fortnite. Epic launched a payment system that circumvented the Apple App Store, so the iPhone maker didn’t get a cut. Apple then stopped new users from downloading Fortnite on its platform, but existing copies of Fortnite can still use Epic’s system.- Advertisement – Epic sued Apple on August 13, claiming the removal of the Fortnite app from the App Store was in “retaliation” for the game maker’s decision to offer in-app purchases through its own marketplace. Epic was denied a court order in late August that would have temporarily stopped Apple from delisting Fortnite.Apple escalated the dispute, filing a counter suit in September to stop the game maker from using its own payment system for Fortnite. Apple also accused Epic of theft and sought extra monetary damages beyond breach of contract. But a judge didn’t buy the argument at a hearing Tuesday.”This is a high-stakes breach of contract case and an antitrust case and that’s all in my view,” US District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers told lawyers.- Advertisement – ”You can’t just say it’s independently wrongful,” she told Anna Casey, a lawyer for Apple, referring to Epic’s conduct. “You actually have to have facts.”The judge threw out the two claims. The rest of the breach-of-contract case moves forward.-With assistance from Olga Kharif.- Advertisement – © 2020 Bloomberg L.P.Which is the best TV under Rs. 25,000?

Animators in tourism can now play a key role through the production of quality content

first_imgThe difference between external and own animation is significant and large hotel houses are more inclined to develop their animation teams, while smaller tourist facilities are taken over by external agencies. I first had my first contact with tourism through animation, 20 years ago, when I entered the magical world of animation and tourism at the age of 16,5. Animation certainly marked and directed my life, both privately and professionally, and ultimately led me to launch the portal. At this moment, animators can play an important role in digital communication and positioning of every hotel, ie the production of quality content. From creative workshops for children, plays to various sketches. For inspiration, see how they are Red-nosed clown doctors made great clown shows. So, animators, now is the time for “digital” animation of your guests. Although we cannot realistically expect any major tourist activity from this year, most hoteliers and agencies have already crossed this year, but people will continue to travel. if not before, then from the spring of 2021, so quality content is always IN. At the moment, everyone is in home self-isolation, everyone is online, and they are looking for interesting content. And that’s why animation teams can generate quality and unique content for their hotels. First of all, they already have a large base of tourists who have already been in the same hotels and communicated with the animators, while on the other hand, they certainly additionally position the hotel brand through quality content. We live in a time where tourism has literally stopped globally, but as always, and especially in crisis situations, it is important to communicate. Now more than ever. Once an animator, always an animator – is a famous saying of all those who worked as animators in tourism in their lives. Preference is certainly given to hotels that have their own animation teams, because it is easier and cheaper for them to produce any material, but animation teams from external agencies should also be activated. From exercise and training, as well as what you normally do animation sports programs (yoga, pilates, aerobics…), and especially focus on content for children. Photo: Pexels.comlast_img read more
