Fire-ravaged Speedibake factory unlikely to reopen

first_imgSpeedibake does not plan to rebuild its site in Wakefield that was devastated by fire four weeks ago.The blaze completely destroyed two buildings and caused structural damage to others.Speedibake stated: “With great regret, we consider that the financial cost and time needed to undertake a full rebuild is simply too great to make it a viable option.”Around 160 staff will be affected by the planned closure. The company said it had explored a number of options to keep the site open, and would still consider alternative proposals.In a trading update this week, Speedibake parent company Associated British Foods (ABF) referred to the “significant damage” at Wakefield, and stated it has comprehensive insurance for property damage and business interruption.Following the fire on 1 February, Speedibake pledged to pay staff for at least three months while damage was assessed.Today (27 February) it said: “We have been mindful that we need to give people clarity as quickly as possible so that they can plan for the future.“We know this announcement will be deeply upsetting for many people and we give our absolute commitment that, if the proposals are accepted, we will support those affected to help them find alternative employment.”Some roles will be offered in the Bradford Speedibake site, following the transfer of a Wakefield production line there. Speedibake said it would also be speaking to other businesses owned by ABF about potential job openings.“In the meantime, we will continue to work with our employees through this period of consultation and have expressed to them our deep gratitude and pride in the manner they responded to the fire and its aftermath,” said Speedibake.“We are also thankful for the support we continue to receive from the community, our suppliers and customers.”last_img read more

Summer Camp, Day 5! Bernadette Peters Channels The Golden Girls

first_img LOOK OUT FOR… 2:07. “Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you,” Bernadette! View Comments We’re gonna be honest: Things around the offices have gotten really boring the last few weeks. It’s sweltering, it’s humid, and worst of all, no new Broadway shows open until after Labor Day. But never fear, dear readers, we’ve got a great way to spice up the month of August: Summer Camp! Each day for 31 days, we’re highlighting the campiest, craziest, wildest—and did we mention campiest?—videos we can find. Put on your gaudy bathing suit and dive in! Bernadette Peters OVERALL CAMP FACTOR 10 out of 10 glittery lavender bustiers. Obviously.center_img MOST GIF-ABLE MOMENT Star Files WHY WE LOVE IT If there’s one thing we know, it’s Broadway. If there’s another thing we know, it’s The Golden Girls. It doesn’t get much better than hanging out in Miami with our besties Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia…oh, except this delightfully tacky video of Bernadette Peters in purple silk genie pants, singing the show’s theme song, “Thank You For Being a Friend” at her 1979 concert. We know, we know, the hit series didn’t premiere until 1985, so Peters is really covering Andrew Gold’s version of the song, but still. She’s a pal and a confidant.last_img read more

Nevada to vote on 50% renewable standard in November

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Las Vegas Review-Journal:Nevadans will be able to decide if they want to up the state’s renewable energy production after the initiative was officially qualified for the November ballot on Wednesday.Nevadans for a Clean Energy Future last month submitted more than twice the needed to make it onto the ballot. On Wednesday, the secretary of state’s office notified local county election officials and the backers of the initiative to confirm that 133,005 of the signatures were deemed valid, surpassing the needed 112,554 signatures needed to qualify.“This is a landmark day for Nevada’s families, Nevada’s air, and Nevada’s economy,” said Nevadans for a Clean Energy Future campaign manager Katie Robbins. “For far too long, we have done too little to take advantage of our immense solar and geothermal resources. For far too long, we have inhaled too many fossil fuel emissions. We will change this in November when Nevadans vote YES on Question 6 to guarantee that at least half of our power comes from renewables and begin building a better future for the economic and physical health of everyone in our state.”Roughly 20 percent of the energy in Nevada currently comes from renewable sources, and the state’s current Renewable Portfolio Standard, or RPS, calls for that figure to increase to 25 percent by 2025.Question 6 would double that standard to 50 percent by 2030, which would put Nevada’s RPS on par with the likes of California, Oregon, New York and New Jersey. Since it is a constitutional initiative petition, meaning it seeks to amend the state constitution, voters would need to approve Question 6 in 2018 and again in 2020 to become law.More: Renewable energy measure qualifies for Nevada ballot Nevada to vote on 50% renewable standard in Novemberlast_img read more

How social media has changed marketing

first_img 17SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr A marketing campaign 10 years ago looks a lot different than a marketing campaign today.And social media is a big reason why.“You really have to start thinking about how you would engage with people, not just a one-sided conversation making it all about you,” says Matt Maguy, co-founder of the marketing firm James & Matthews.To engage successfully, credit unions need to take the channel seriously in terms of investment in dollars and staff, he tells the CUNA News Podcast.“If credit unions aren’t investing in people to run social media as a full-time position, in my humble opinion, they’re completely out of their minds,” Maguy says.In the podcast, Maguy discusses the latest trends in digital and social media marketing, his thoughts on the difficulties the airlines are having with hashtags, and whether credit unions should engage on Snapchat and other emerging platforms. continue reading »last_img read more

3 tips for having good work relationships

He keeps the credit union … Web: Details It’s good to enjoy your work. It’s also good to enjoy those people you work with. If your work relationships aren’t what they should be, here are a few tips to turn those into healthy, productive work relationships.Be respectful: People tend to respect those who have given them respect. Your coworkers will know when you’ve zoned out or aren’t quite being upfront and honest with them. Do your best to be sincere, and pay attention when someone is trying to convey a message. Knowing you’re not being heard can be a frustrating thing when you’re on a team.Nip it in the bud: There will be disagreements in your work relationships. People see things differently and have completely different ideas about the best way to accomplish work goals. Talk things out, find resolutions, and if that doesn’t work, find a neutral 3rd party who can help mediate. Your mom always said “never go to bed angry,” and this is a good motto for relationships with coworkers. Always try and resolve issues as quickly and pleasantly as possible.Don’t get too personal: Bringing too much of your personal business into the office can be distracting and interfere with the job at hand. You want your relationships to be good, but you also need to keep work the top priority.last_img read more

Petronas Puts LNG Bunkering High on Agenda

first_imgMalaysian oil and gas company Petronas has set sights on tapping into the potential of burgeoning LNG bunkering market.The strategy is in line with Malaysia’s plans to become the regional LNG bunkering hub, especially in the wake of growing uptake of LNG as marine fuel triggered by the industry’s switch to more-environmentally marine fuels.“Efforts are now being put in place towards advocating LNG as the preferred marine fuel of choice. In close collaboration with industry associations like MOSVA, programmes are aligned to encourage migration; to develop necessary infrastructures to support a swift and effective migration of local (currently diesel-fueled) offshore support vessel (OSV) fleet to LNG, as the cleaner option,” the company said in its Activity Outlook for 2019-2020.The company said that the first commercial LNG bunkering is poised for start-up by second half of 2019 from a number of facilities, starting with those based in Sg Udang, Melacca and Pengerang, Johor, followed by Kemaman, Terengganu and Labuan in Sabah.Dual-fueled LNG-based engines are expected to be the future solution, according to Petronas.On November 1st, Peronas LNG conducted its first LNG supply operation at the Regasification Terminal Pengerang (RGTP). The facility loaded the world’s largest LNG bunker vessel Kairos, which has just swung into operation. The company believes that small-scale LNG opportunities will increase from the utilisation of alternative cleaner fuel such as LNG, on the back of the global sulphur cap entering into force in January 2020.last_img read more

ARISTIDE RETURNS: Former Haitian leader ends seven year exile in South Africa

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! NewsRegional ARISTIDE RETURNS: Former Haitian leader ends seven year exile in South Africa by: – March 18, 2011 Sharecenter_img Tweet 22 Views   no discussions PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti, CMC – Jean Bertrand Aristide ended seven years of living in exile in South Africa returning to Haiti on Friday less than 48 hours before voters elect a new head of state to replace outgoing President Rene Preval.“The great day has arrived! The day to say goodbye before returning home,” he said in Zulu, “We are delighted to return home after seven years. In Haiti also they are very happy. … Their dream will be fulfilled. Together, we will continue to share this endless love,” Aristide said as he left South Africa on Thursday.But his return to the French-speaking Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country is raising eyebrows leading to allegations that his return is aimed at influencing the outcome of the election in which former first lady, Mirlande Manigat, and popular singer Michel Martelly, are the two candidates.Dressed in a dark suit, the former Roman Catholic priest arrived here on a charter flight from South Africa and was greeted by some supporters and 100 or so airport workers, some waving little Haitian flags. Aristide clasped his hands as he stepped down to the tarmac, and his wife, Mildred, wept.Aristide’s political party, Lavalas, is not contesting the legislative council or the presidential polls, but it remains a popular organization mainly among poor Haitians. Aristide told reporters on his arrival that the exclusion of his party is “the exclusion of the majority.” The Provisional Electoral Council (CEP) barred Lavalas from the elections.One CARICOM diplomat told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) that it was CEP acted because it was not clear who actually headed the party in the run-up to the polls. The United States had sought to prevent Aristide’s return asking South Africa to postpone to allow him to leave the country after Sunday’s elections that many view as critical for the development of the country still reeling from a powerful earthquake in January last year that killed an estimated 300,000 and left more than one million other people homeless, most of whom still live in tents.In addition, the CARICOM country is facing a cholera outbreak that has killed more than 4,000 since the first case was detected last October. But South African officials said they had no power to prevent the former Haitian leader from going anywhere he chose.Aristide left Johannesburg late Thursday, accompanied by his wife, two daughters, actor Danny Clover and the former leader’s Miami-based lawyer.Aristide who feared that a new government would have prevented his return, said he wanted to return to work in the education field, not politics. He has also said chronic eye problems are aggravated by South Africa’s cold weather. Twice elected president and twice deposed, Aristide is a popular figure.“I think that the Haitian people are very happy,” Aristide told Democracy Now!, a U.S.-based news programme.“Happy to know that we are on our way heading to Haiti. Happy to know that finally their dream will be fulfilled by things on the ground because they fought hard for democracy. They always wanted the return to happen and now it is happening,” Aristide said during a refueling stop over in Dakar.Aristide’s return home follows that of former dictator Jean-Claude (Baby Doc) Duvalier who landed in Port-au-Prince in January.Duvalier has since been charged with a number of fraud related charges stemming from his term in office before he was forced into exile in 1986.Source: Cana Newslast_img read more
