New Market serves more than 900 diners an hour Sodexo president

Dean Johnson, president of Sodexo Canada, and Jack Lightstone unveil the new name of the marché-style eatery.The Niagara Market and its marché-style eatery opened earlier this year, and the Brock community has responded in droves.And on Sept. 1, about 250 faculty and staff gathered in the spacious culinary hall when university and Sodexo officials formally declared the facility open.Since the Market began operating in May, about 218 rotisserie chickens have been sold each day. Following the Market’s local mandate, those chickens have been from Niagara.About 920 people go through the Market every hour. Each day, about $1,200 worth of fresh produce is available with an emphasis on produce from farms within a 100-mile radius.These figures were given by Sodexo Canada president Dean Johnson at Wednesday’s official opening, where it was also announced that the marché will be named the Guernsey Market, for the birthplace of Sir Isaac Brock.The Market has been a success for everyone involved, Johnson said.“We are thrilled that the marketplace is already living up to expectations, both for Brock and for ourselves,” Johnson said.The Market opened in May 2010 after about a year of construction. Its seating area is 12,000 square feet, while the marché is 5,000 square feet. The project cost about $9 million.In addition to serving Brock’s faculty, staff and students, the Market is also open to the public, and will be open before Centre for the Arts performances. President Jack Lightstone said he thinks of it as an asset to Niagara as well, both as a dining area and as a way to support local producers.Starting in September, the Market is open seven days a week, said Tom Arkell, director of Community and Ancillary Services.Lightstone also praised staff for their work.“We depend on you to make Brock what it is,” he said. “It’s you who drives Brock’s mission.”Vicky Mitchell, Sodexo grill cook, serves mojo shrimp at the official opening of the Market. read more

Police forensics at Sainsbury's A pensioner went on a vicious “stabbing spree” outside a supermarket, injuring four innocent women, a court has been told.They were picked at random by Ethem Orhon, who wanted to “get revenge on police for what he perceived as their mistreatment of him”, prosecutor Jonathan Polnay told Kingston Crown Court.Orhon, 67, of Hampton, west London, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of attempted murder and two of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. Police forensics at Sainsbury’sCredit:Nick Edwards The women – Suzanna Brand, 53, Janet Morsey, 63, Jean Sullivan, 68, and Charandasi Chandiramani, 71 – suffered “serious and appalling injuries” in or near the Sainsbury’s car park in Hampton, west London, on May 20.The “true bravery” of two schoolboys – who distracted Orhon, warned others that he was armed and dangerous, called police and stayed on the telephone with the 999 operator during the rampage – potentially stopped further bloodshed, the jury was told.Speaking of the boys, who cannot be named for legal reasons, Mr Polnay said: “Without their help it may be that more people would have been injured by this man.”Holding up a knife with a 4in blade, Mr Polnay told the jury that Orhon “plunged this knife at least 20 times into four innocent members of the public who had been doing their shopping”.last_img read more

Sony lets you download multiplayer mode first for PS4 games

first_imgOne of the useful new features coming along with the PS4 is the ability to play downloaded games before they’ve actually finished downloading. That’s handy, especially if you are on a slower connection and a game is 10GB or more. But it turns out Sony is offering an extra layer of choice when it comes to choosing what part of a game to download.Sony has just released a new PS4 interface demonstration video. At one point in the video the gamer we are watching gets a voice chat message from his friend asking him to help out in a game of Killzone. So a Killzone purchase and download is initiated. That’s when a new option appears allowing you to download either the multiplayer or single-player mode of the game first.That’s a clever feature to add, and should allow gamers to jump into an in-progress multiplayer game that much quicker. At the same time, it should free up your line more quickly because you aren’t downloading the single-player data in the background while you play online. That can be downloaded later on.The video also demonstrates that the PS4 interface is a departure from the XMB menu we currently use on PS3. There’s also a big emphasis put on the sharing capabilities of the console, although I’m hoping on the evidence of the video it stays out of your way if you want to focus on your own game completely.last_img read more

Major companies pull ads from Bill OReillys show over sexual harassment claims

first_img By Associated Press Wednesday 5 Apr 2017, 7:45 AM Image: AP/PA Images 13,925 Views Share Tweet Email1 http://jrnl.ie/3324602 Image: AP/PA Images BILL O’REILLY’S TOP-RATED Fox News show may be starting to feel a financial sting after allegations that he sexually harassed several women.A dozen major advertisers, ranging from automakers Hyundai and BMW, to financial firm T. Rowe Price, insurer Allstate and drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline, have pulled their ads from ‘The O’Reilly Factor’.The moves come after a weekend report in The New York Times that O’Reilly and his employer paid five women $13 million to settle harassment or other allegations of inappropriate conduct by Fox’s star.O’Reilly is Fox News’ top revenue producer, according to research firm Kantar Media, bringing in over $178 million in ad dollars in 2015 and $118.6 million in the first nine months of 2016.Fox News itself makes up one-fifth of parent company 21st Century Fox’s profit, according to estimates from Anthony DiClemete, a media analyst with the Nomura investment bank.The advertiser boycotts, however, are likely manageable for Fox, said Pivotal Research Group analyst Brian Wieser in a note.Wieser noted some advertisers had already decided to stay away following the sexual harassment scandals of the network’s departed head, Roger Ailes, and newly concerned companies will wind up on other Fox News programmes.Even if O’Reilly were forced to leave the network if the scandal broadened, the channel’s brand is bigger than its hosts, he said.The other companies pulling ads yesterday were automaker Mitsubishi, personal finance site Credit Karma, drugmaker Sanofi, pet food company Ainsworth, men’s shirt seller Untuckit, and online marketing firm Constant Contact.They joined Mercedes Benz, which said on Monday it was backing away from O’Reilly’s show.Temporary hold Hyundai said it currently has no ads on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’, but it pulled spots on future episodes. The automaker said it wants to partner with companies and programming that share its values of inclusion and diversity.BMW said it suspended advertising on the show due to the recent allegations, as did T. Rowe Price, Sanofi, Ainsworth and Constant Contact. Allstate said support for women is a company value and it had also suspended advertising on the show.GlaxoSmithKline said it had “temporarily put a hold” on ads on O’Reilly’s show while it reviews the situation.A Mercedes-Benz spokesman said on Monday night that the company had pulled ads from O’Reilly’s show and reassigned them to other Fox News shows. Sanofi and Untuckit have the same plan. BMW said it wasn’t sure where it would place its ads instead.In a statement, Fox News said that advertisers who pulled their ads would be directed to the network’s other programmes.Read: Trump’s secretary of state says US has ‘no comment’ after North Korea launches missile >Explainer: What’s going on with Gibraltar and why are tempers flaring about it? > 19 Comments Major companies pull ads from Bill O’Reilly’s show over sexual harassment claims Fox News said that advertisers who pulled their ads would be directed to the network’s other programmes.

Ambassador hosts Samaras in Athens

first_imgJenny Bloomfield, Australia’s ambassador to Greece, welcomed Prime Minister Antonis Samaras as guest of honour to a lunch at her residence last week, along with heads of missions of the G20 countries based in the Greek capital.The lunch – to mark Australia’s presidency of the G20 and the first ministerial meeting of the G20 in Sydney last weekend, and Greece’s presidency of the Council of the European Union – provided a timely opportunity for Ambassador Bloomfield to outline Australia’s priorities for its presidency of the world’s most powerful inter-governmental body, and for Mr Samaras to report on Greece’s progress in relation to its own economic reform program.During the working lunch, Ambassador Bloomfield outlined the Australian government’s G20 agenda: a focus on practical measures to drive stronger, sustainable and balanced economic growth and to strengthen the resilience of the global economy. Mrs Bloomfield went on to underline Australia’s credentials to urge such action – noting Australia’s strong economic performance and record of reform over many years. The ambassador added that the respectively held presidencies provided a unique opportunity for Greece and Australia to cooperate on the world stage to realise shared goals.After congratulating Australia on its G20 presidency, Mr Samaras echoed the point – noting the commonality of objectives facing Greece and Australia at the national, EU and global level. The PM briefed the ambassadorial gathering on Greece’s reform program that has seen painful changes to the labour market, pensions, the health system and tax administration. Since 2009 Greece’s primary fiscal deficit has been reduced by more than 10 per cent of GDP and is on track to meet required targets. Meanwhile Greece’s current account deficit – that stood at almost 15 per cent of GDP in 2008 – is reported by the Greek Ministry of Finance this month to have gone into surplus.At the G20 ministerial meeting in Sydney last weekend, finance ministers and central bank governors committed to implement policies to grow collective GDP by more than 2 per cent above the current trajectory over the next five years in order to ramp up global economic activity and job creation. As a first step to achieving this target, each country will deliver a growth strategy at the Brisbane G20 Leaders’ Summit in November, with concrete actions required to boost investment, trade, competition and employment, as well as macroeconomic stability.Greece’s presidency of the EU began in January and will conclude in June. Likely to be uppermost on the EU’s agenda in 2014 is employment growth and the establishment of a European banking union. A further priority will be to review immigration and border policies in order to reflect the needs of member states – like Greece – who have experienced an influx of illegal immigrants set on making new lives in Europe.

Smart Bandage Uses 5G to Confer With Your Doctor

first_imgStay on target The medical technology market—one of the fastest growing in the field—is forecast to exceed $500 billion in sales by 2021.So it’s no wonder scientists, including those at Swansea University’s Institute of Life Science (ILS), are turning their focus to health tech.Researchers developed what BBC News called “smart bandages,” which can detect how a wound is healing and communicate with doctors. The 5G-powered dressing also monitors what treatment is needed and tracks the wearer’s activity levels.This project is part of the recent £1.3 billion ($1.6 billion) Swansea Bay City deal, which aims to turn the Welsh city into a 5G test hub.The next-gen cellular network, which boasts higher speed and capacity and lower latency than existing platforms, is expected for large-scale deployment in 2019. Leaving scientists more than a year to test their intelligent gauze.“5G is an opportunity to produce resilient, robust bandwidth that is always there for the purpose of healthcare,” ILS Chairman Marc Clement told the BBC.The smart bandage, loaded with tiny nanotechnology sensors, would connect to a 5G infrastructure through your phone, providing doctors with details like current location and activity levels.“You combine all of that intelligence so the clinician knows the performance of the specific wound at any specific time and can then tailor the treatment protocol to the individual and wound in question,” Swansea professor Clement said.Nanotechnology experts will develop the embedded sensors, while ILS plans to 3D print bandages on the cheap. Trials could begin within the next 12 months and will be conducted through Arch (A Regional Collaboration for Health) in Wales.“What the future holds is a world where there’s the ability to vary the treatment to the individual, the lifestyle, and the pattern of life,” Clement said. “All of the evidence is there before them in this 5G world, so the clinician and patient can work together to address the challenge.” Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend last_img read more

Oxford American Staffer Arrested for Embezzling 30K

first_imgAccording to Smirnoff, Maxwell, who joined the magazine in June, had issued company checks to herself by forging the name of a former employee. “The majority of checks were deposited in December and January, but we see the activity started as far back as September,” says Smirnoff. Wittenburg confronted Maxwell after a number of company checks that were made out to Maxwell but were returned due to insufficient funds.The magazine staff is working with authorities to determine the full extent of the alleged theft. “We know there’s about $30,000 gone from the forged checks but we don’t know yet what else might have been taken,” Smirnoff says. “When you suddenly find yourself dealing with an embezzler, you have to double check everything as far as the finances go. You can’t trust anything.”Maxwell, who reportedly faces up to 30 years in jail, was released Tuesday on bond and is set for a pretrial hearing March 13. The University of Central Arkansas Police Department did not immediately return requests for comment.Smirnoff founded the Oxford American literary magazine in 1992 in Oxford, Mississippi. It folded in 2002, but was relaunched soon after in Little Rock, Arkansas. The magazine folded again a year later but was re-established more than three years ago as a non-profit on the university campus.It’s still too early to know exactly what financial repercussions the magazine will experience as result of the alleged crime and whether or not the magazine will need to lay off any of its employees, Smirnoff says. “This is going to be a footnote in our history. We’re not going to let this incident define us.”Maxwell could not be reached for comment. The former operations manager of the Oxford American literary magazine is facing jail time after being arrested for allegedly embezzling at least $30,000 from the Arkansas-based non-profit publication.“This is a hurtful kick we sustained,” founder and editor Marc Smirnoff tells FOLIO:. Oxford American is located on the University of Central Arkansas campus. “We’re a poor non-profit. Losing $5 hurts. She essentially emptied our bank account, so we have to rebuild from scratch.”The former employee, Renae Maxwell, who is 41, was arrested by university police last week. Maxwell had attempted to flee, Smirnoff says, following a confrontation with magazine publisher Ray Wittenburg.last_img read more

AeroMexico dished out discounts to antiMexican Americans after proving they had Mexican

first_img Posted by << Previous PostNext Post >> Tags: Aeromexico, Funny, Mexico MEXICO CITY — AeroMexico has pulled off the ultimate mic drop with a hilarious new commercial that pokes fun at U.S.-Mexico relations.Filmed in Wharton, Texas, the airline asked several local residents if they’d ever consider travelling to Mexico for vacation.“No way,” said a woman named Betsy, while a cowboy hat-clad gentleman said, “Let me stay here in peace and let those folks stay on their side of the border.” Another man named Bill (as indicated by his monogrammed shirt) admitted he liked tequila and burritos, but Mexico? “No.”Faced with the challenge of increasing USA flights to Mexico when “a big part of Americans just don’t like Mexico”, the airline referred to Department of Homeland Security statistics that detail Mexican immigration in the south going back as far as the 1800s. This would mean that a huge percentage of Mexican descendants in the U.S. isn’t even aware of their Mexican roots.So what did AeroMexico do? They performed DNA tests to willing participants and turned the results into discounts.More news:  Hotel charges Bollywood star $8.50 for two bananas and the Internet has thoughts“The more Mexican they are, the more discount they get,” it promised.Bill, who clocked in at 18% Mexican, suddenly wasn’t so dead-set against the idea of Mexico, even flaunting the fact that he scored ‘higher’ than his wife Charlotte, who was only 14.4% Mexican.Another man was told he was 22% Mexican and immediately responded, “That’s bull***t.” But after being offered a 22% discount to fly to his ancestral country, he inquired about the possibility of taking his wife, too.As for Betsy? Well, she didn’t fare so well, only registering 3% Mexican heritage. With only a minimal discount on offer, Betsy is seen examining her written results, shaking her head in disbelief.Where are those Mexican roots when you need ‘em now?

NEW YORK NY – Dwayne Johnson hopes to honour th

first_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Dwayne Johnson hopes to honour the amputee community by playing a former FBI agent with a prosthetic leg in the new action thriller “Skyscraper.”In the film, Johnson plays the security consultant of a Hong Kong skyscraper who must save his family and the city from harm when it becomes engulfed in flames. The problem is intensified when he’s framed for starting the blaze.“I was honoured to play an amputee, and to make sure that I did right by them,” Johnson said on the red carpet for the film’s US premiere Tuesday night. “The research was very extensive. I spent a lot of time with amputees.”One of those he consulted joined Johnson at the premiere: Jeff Glasbrenner, a Paralympian who became the first American amputee to successfully climb Mount Everest in 2016. Johnson called him “an amazing man.”Of the film, he added: “There’s two sides to this. One is a big spectacle, big summer fun. The other side is making sure that we paid homage and respect to amputees around the world.”The film’s writer and director Rawson Marshall Thurber called it “incredibly important” to represent the amputee community.“There hasn’t been an amputee as the lead of an action film, ever, as far as I know. And I thought it was high time and I hope we’re not the last. I think Dwayne worked really, really hard to represent that community and honour that community. And I think he did a fantastic job,” Thurber said.___Follow John Carucci at http://www.twitter.com/jacarucci Actor Dwayne Johnson and mother Ata Johnson attend the “Skyscraper” premiere at AMC Loews Lincoln Square on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, in New York.
