CSM has downgraded the valuation of its European Bakery Supplies business (BSEU) by €165m (£143.2m) to €103m (£89m).It comes as the Netherlands-based business revealed its latest financial update, this week, for its 2012 full-year performance, which saw sales volumes in the BSEU division slide by 2%.Full-year net sales in the BSEU division rose by €4.04m (£3.5m) to €1.12bn (£970.2m), while Ebitda during 2012 declined by 47% to €16.9m (£14.7m), in comparison to the previous year.In a statement, CSM said: “In this tough environment our Bakery Supplies businesses performed satisfactorily. We saw volume declines albeit at a rate in line with or better than market average, while profitability increased as a result of our strong focus on cost.”The company added that volumes at BSEU increased during the fourth quarter compared to last year, which is the first increase since 2010, and the decline of its artisanal channel was not as apparent as it had been in previous quarters. CSM said this was offset by significant growth in the in-store bakery market.CSM said it is due to sell its European and North American Bakery Supplies divisions this year, in a bid to focus on its bio-based ingredients business.

A South Florida commissioner shocked his colleagues and others attending an awards ceremony during Wednesday’s commission meeting.Tamarac Mayor Michelle Gomez and the city’s leadership were handing out Officer of the Month awards and posing for photos with the recognized officers.Afterward, Commissioner Mike Gelin took the microphone from Gomez and asked Broward Sheriff’s Deputy Joshua Gallardo to return to the front of the room.Gelin then criticized Gallardo over what he believed was his false arrest by the officer in 2015, stating, “You probably don’t remember me, but you’re the police officer who falsely arrested me four years ago. You lied on the police report. I believe you’re a rogue police officer. You’re a bad police officer, and you don’t deserve to be here.”Gallardo responded by smiling and walking away.Gomez told reporters afterward, “Completely shocked. This was not something we were expecting. It was supposed to be a wonderful morning. We were giving the awards for the BSO deputies of the month. It was supposed to be a feel-good time.”She took the microphone back from Gelin and expressed support for the officers in attendance and all those who protect our region.According to the website LawEnforcementToday.com, Gallardo took Gelin into custody for resisting arrest without violence in 2014, after Gelin refused to stay away from a scene in which a man had been found beaten.The district attorney chose not to move forward with case, and all of the charges were eventually dropped.“When I shared my video with the state attorney’s office to prove that I did nothing wrong, they declined to file charges against me,” Gelin says. “I had a productive conversation with the Sheriff yesterday and I will try to resolve things and move forward.”Gallardo was being honored at the meeting for his role in the April arrest of a gang member who was wanted for murder in El Salvador and was in the U.S. illegally.
Tags: Drax Golf Club, England Golf Awards, Liam Ridgill, Young Ambassador of the Year What does it mean to win an England Golf Award? What difference does it make? As we search for our 2019 winners, we set those questions for Liam Ridgill, our 2018 Young Ambassador of the Year.Liam is the captain of Drax Golf Club in Yorkshire, taking on the role at the age of just 23! He is the youngest captain in the club’s history and the only person to have been both junior and club captain.Winning the award has had a great influence on his year. He explains:“The award came a catalyst for success, not only personally but for the club and more importantly in my eyes, the game as a whole. I have always aimed to help modernise the game and attract younger players to all golf clubs. After all, it is a fantastic social sport that has served me well since picking up my first 7-iron at the age of eight.“I’m happy to say that through further initiatives from members’ benefit schemes and other developments at the club, we have seen 34 new members this year – with the majority never been members of golf clubs before!“While it has been fantastic welcoming new players to the game, I have tried to focus on keeping people playing and involved in the sport. In the busy 21st century, some of us unfortunately don’t find the time to play golf, mixing it with work and family time. This is why in March 2018 we at Drax introduced “Sticks at 6”.“It was a new 9-hole social gathering which was run by myself every Wednesday from March to mid-September to encourage people to pick up their clubs for 9 holes at 6pm.“This was also a great way to integrate new members with longer serving members of the club. Two of the new members, off the back of our first Sticks at 6, managed to reach the semi-finals of our doubles knockout competition.“From the success of this year, I encourage all clubs in England to host their own Sticks at 6 and keep their members engaged with the club.“As you can imagine, being a club captain at such a young age has been a happy challenge. However it has now put me in good stead, along with the award, to start looking at the future of golf in terms of junior players.“When I first joined Drax as a 12 year old, we had 40+ juniors. Sadly, over the years the number has unfortunately dwindled. My focus for 2019 and the following years will be around encouraging and supporting the younger generation of players and trying to encourage those of school/university age to take up the sport we all know and love.“I’m hoping to draw on the award to show people of a young age that golf is a game for everyone. I believe that England Golf has fantastic values that can be relayed to a wide audience using all forms of social media. Drax members have come to embrace platforms such as Facebook and Twitter and it is now an invaluable part of our marketing strategy.”Know someone equally deserving for 2019?

Derby fans had plenty to be hoarse about as they staggered out of the Rossland Arena on Sept. 11 after narrowly winning what was arguably the fiercest and closest derby bout the West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby League has ever seen. Hometown Gnarlie’s Angels fans were out in force in rock star red and with fire in the belly, but they were almost outdone by a massive contingent of true blue supporters chanting feverishly for Salmo’s Babes of Brutality. When the old foes faced off, the structural integrity of the arena’s new roof was distinctly threatened by cowbells and hoopla. “The place was nuts,” said Coach Vegas of the Angels. “I’ve never seen that much excitement in one place in Rossland. We were pretty lucky it all went our way right at the end. We were pretty lit up.” Luck may have played a role, but steely nerves, cunning strategy, and the blood, sweat, and tears of three two-hour practices a week all season long greased the wheels for the searing season finale between the top Kootenay teams. From the outset, the Angels were trailing the Babes. “Eighty per cent of the game, we were feeling pretty demoralized,” Coach Vegas recalled. Part of the problem was the penalty box packed with Angels. Blockers in particular were under the scrutiny of a very experienced crew of refs brought in especially for the game, most of them from Edmonton. “I got a little upset a few times, but then simmered down when I saw the rationale and thought about it,” Vegas said. “They don’t miss a lot; they’re pretty on it.” Derby teams depend on blockers to stop the opposing jammer and let through their own. The more times a jammer circles the pack of blockers, the more points the team earns, but both blockers and jammers can get penalties. At first the Angels were caught blocking too far from the pack or while facing in the wrong direction. Short blockers on the track, the Babes managed to ring up hefty leads, particularly under the jammership of the indomitable Beretta Lynch, who took a number of key lead jams. In the final seconds of the first period, the Angels’ captain, Canuck Norris, managed to snag the lead jam and kept rolling up points during the overtime allowed by the two minute lead jam limit. Although Norris’s sprint roughly tied the teams in the 80s, the second period was marked by super-pumped Salmo exuberance as the Babes bumped up over 100, leaving the Angels in their dust. With 15 seconds left on the clock, and trailing well behind the Babes, Coach Vegas had to yell, jump, and wildly wave his hands to get the referees’ attention to call a time out. He was finally noticed and the Angels came together for a final pep talk. Back on the track, Canuck Norris blitzed through pack to take lead jam status. Moments later, Babe jammer Beretta Lynch was sent to the box for a back block. “That changed history,” Coach Vegas recalled. “That changed the whole game.” Unable to accumulate points with their jammer in the box, the clock ran out on the Babes and Norris kept cycling the pack, racking up points in her two minute jam until the game was won. Please check out this gallery for action-packed shots of the evening’s bone-crunching festivities.

Babbling Babies a multi-lingual nursery rhyme and action songbook was launched in the Twin Towns Library, Stranorlar on Friday last.This collection of traditional nursery rhymes has been developed by Lifestart Services, with the support of Donegal Library Service, the County Childcare Committee and HSE Health Promotion and Improvement Service.An enthusiastic audience of adults and young children attended the launch which was held during Wainfest the Library Service’s annual Arts & Book Festival in October promoting love of books and reading in children. Early Years practitioners, teachers and Language Therapists have expressed concern about young children’s lack of fluency in their speech and reduced vocabulary.Child development experts have noted the fact that very many young children can no longer recite traditional nursery rhymes.Yet the research tells us that if children know eight nursery rhymes by heart by the time they are four years old, they are usually among the best readers in their class at age eight.The aim of the booklet is to stimulate language development and promote the importance of reading to children. Rhymes and songs in English, Irish, Polish, Romanian, Hindi and Kiswahili (Kenya) are included. This is the second edition of the booklet and Arabic and Chinese rhymes been added.Speaking at the launch Mary Walker Callaghan, Manager Lifestart Services, highlighted the benefits for children when parents read to them.These include developing their understanding of how language works, strengthening the relationship between the parent and child and developing a love of books.Maureen Kerr, Donegal Library Services said: “I am delighted to launch this second edition of Babbling Babies. The first book proved so popular that had it not been given free, it would have topped the bestseller list for several months following publication.“The book is important for many reasons. It helps children develop language skills. When parents read to and teach rhymes to their children it enhances the bond between the child and parent. The book in sharing nursery rhymes from around the world and honouring other languages helps promote inclusion.“I thank all the Council’s partner organisations for their hard work on bringing this lovely booklet to completion. I know it will be enjoyed by families throughout Donegal in the weeks and months to come.”Babbling Babies is part of a series of actions designed to improve children’s educational outcomes. The Library, Lifestart, County Childcare Committee and Health Promotion partnership is a Working Group of the Donegal Children & Young People’s Services Committee (CYPSC).To date, they have introduced the Bookworm Babies library card for children 0 -3 years. This year the Word Monsters library card has been introduced for children 4 – 6 years. The Lifelong Readers workshops have been rolled out for Early Years Practitioners and Parent & Toddler groups. Future plans include Ag Léamh le Chéile workshops in primary schools and the introduction of the Ready Readers library card.Our communities in Donegal are very fortunate to have a high-quality library service with a staff of committed librarians who are always ready to welcome parents and children, teachers and classes to the libraries.In addition to Wainfest, activities for children are held regularly throughout the year – and best of all the library service is free!So do go along to your local library and pick up a copy of Babbling Babies for your favourite small people. Check out the books for big people too!There is a book there for everyone -from the latest books on the best-seller lists to the Healthy Ireland section where you will find advice and guidance on themes including Eat Well / Think Well / Be Well.As Albert Einstein said – “The only thing that you have to absolutely know is the location of the library.”Donegal parent group launch first nursery rhyme book in Stranorlar – Pic Special was last modified: October 16th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
QPR have responded to claims their plans for a sporting and leisure hub at Old Oak have been dealt a serious blow by Cargiant.The club’s owners want to transform the land between Scrubs Lane and Willesden Junction into an area to be known as New Queens Park which would include a 40,000-capacity arena where Rangers would play.The car supermarket company owns 45 acres of the proposed site, is a major local employer and must be relocated for the proposed regeneration of the area to go ahead.Cargiant have been assessing possible sites to relocate their current operation to but also say they are working on their own plans to develop Old Oak and that their proposals do not include a stadium for QPR.Talks between Rangers and Cargiant ended some time ago with both parties believing there was no basis for a partnership.A QPR spokesman said: “The future regeneration of Old Oak requires everyone to work together for the common good – the boroughs, the Mayor, landowners and the local community.“Our current consultation has so far attracted the views of over 1,000 local residents with over 80% in support of our stadium-led regeneration.“The future of Old Oak lies in the regeneration of the entire area and not the uncoordinated and piecemeal development of individual land holdings.”QPR have invited people to give their views on the future regeneration of Old Oak through the club’s consultation: www.new-queens-park.co.ukSee also:Rangers say public supports Old Oak plansFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
