Kingdom Bakers goes into receivership

first_imgMore than 100 jobs are under threat at Kirkcaldy-based Kingdom Bakers, after the company ceased trading last week.The independent Scottish bakery firm, founded in 1984, announced last Friday (27 January) that it was to go into receivership and sent home 135 members of staff, who could be under threat of redundancy.Kingdom Bakers, which supplies numerous baked products to UK supermarket chains Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons, is now under the control of RSM Tenon.The firm’s directors were forced to seek receivership after reporting severe cash flow problems and pressure from creditors. Recent attempts by the management to attract fresh investment had proved unsuccessful, according to RSM Tenon.Its last annual accounts detailed a £144,000 drop in pre-tax profits between 2008 and 2009, despite an increase in sales from £8m to £8.5m during the same period.Joint receiver Tom MacLennan, RSM Tenon, said: “Kingdom Bakers is a well-known business in the bakery trade, and the receivership presents an excellent opportunity for a competitor or entrepreneur to acquire the assets and goodwill, including extensive production facilities. I would urge any interested parties to contact RSM Tenon immediately.”Kingdom Bakers has production facilities in Kirkcaldy and a pancake plant in Dysart , where it produced its Pancake Pod product, launched into the UK market in 2005.last_img read more

UGA Cooperative Extension pecan specialist Lenny Wells wants to help growers get all of the information they need at the workshop, to be held Monday, April 11.“The main thing we are trying to do is meet the demand we’ve had for the information,” Wells said.The free workshop is open to the public and will begin at 9 a.m. in the old auditorium at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center. It will last until 4 p.m. There will be snacks and a meal provided.The workshop will cover the growth of different varieties, best irrigation and fertility practices, and information about the planning and equipment needed to grow pecans.A similar workshop was held in 2012, and it was well received.

Vietnamese boy dies of avian flu

first_imgMar 18, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – An 11-year-old boy in northern Vietnam died recently of H5N1 avian influenza amid an ongoing spate of bird outbreaks in the country, according to news services and the World Health Organization (WHO).The boy, from Thanh Liem district in Ha Nam province, became ill Mar 4 and died Mar 14, the WHO said in a statement today. Counting his illness, Vietnam has had 106 human H5N1 cases with 52 deaths. The WHO’s global count has reached 373 cases and 236 deaths.An Associated Press (AP) report yesterday said the boy’s family raises chickens, some of which got sick in late February. After some of the birds died, the family killed and ate one of the remaining ones, the director of the provincial health department told the AP.Vietnam has had five human H5N1 cases so far this year, all of them fatal. The last case was in a 23-year-old woman from Phu Tho province who fell ill in mid-February and died Feb 25, according to the WHO. A Xinhua report yesterday said a woman from the same district as the 11-year-old boy died of H5N1 disease in June 2007.Yesterday, Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung criticized farmers for failing to report poultry outbreaks and for eating sick and dead birds, the AP reported. He said the eating of infected birds had caused the four previous deaths this year. Thirteen provinces have had bird outbreaks since the start of the year, the story said.In other developments, the Hong Kong Department of Health recently confirmed that the viruses that killed two children in Hong Kong’s current seasonal flu epidemic were not novel strains.Gene sequencing showed that a 7-year-old boy who died had the Brisbane strain of influenza A/H1N1, and a 3-year-old girl had the Brisbane strain of A/H3N2, the health department said in a Mar 14 statement. Both strains have been circulating in various parts of the world in recent months.Last week Hong Kong officials closed all primary schools and kindergarten/child-care centers because of the growing seasonal flu epidemic. The 2-week closure began Mar 13.See also: Mar 18 WHO statementhttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2008_03_18/en/index.htmlMar 14 Hong Kong Department of Health statementhttp://www.dh.gov.hk/english/press/2008/080314-2.htmllast_img read more

Shouting during the anthem disrespectful

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I went to the Union/RPI hockey game at Union College recently. As is always the case, the event starts with the performance of the national anthem. The anthem begins “Oh say can you…” at which point, Union students and fans shout “U”, drowning out the lyrics on either side.Later in the anthem, RPI students and fans respond by shouting “red glare” (a reference to their teams’ colors) again, seriously disrupting the anthem.Well, they’re disrespecting our country, our flag and our national anthem. Wouldn’t you just love it if some college president said: “Get the sons ‘o’ b—-s out of the rink now. They’re expelled: Expelled.”I would report these “disrespectors” to President Trump, but he probably wouldn’t be too concerned because they’re almost entirely white.Bill MacTiernanSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsSchenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsMotorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashSchenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcylast_img read more

Kvaerner lands decommissioning gig with Shell

first_imgNyhamna expansion  Kvaerner noted it has been the main contractor for the expansion of the Nyhamna plant which will be completed in 2017. Kvaerner was also the main contractor when the first part of the plant was built in 2007.The expansion of the plant consists of two parts. The first part includes land-based compression of gas from the Ormen Lange offshore field with a new compressor which will maintain gas pressure at Nyhamna as the pressure in the reservoir drops.The second part includes export and process facilities for the Polarled pipeline which will transport gas from the Statoil-operated Aasta Hansteen field in the Norwegian Sea to Nyhamna, once the field becomes operational. The Polarled pipeline was completed in September 2015. The compression and export of gas through the 482-kilometer long pipeline is scheduled to start in the autumn of 2018.Shell is the operator for Ormen Lange and the gas plant at Nyhamna but once Aasta Hansteen becomes operational, Gassco will be the operator of Nyhamna with Shell in charge of technical operation.According to information from the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, the expansion will increase Nyhamna’s export capacity from 70 to 84 million Sm3 per day.Offshore Energy Today Staff Norwegian engineering and construction services company Kvaerner has been awarded a contract with Shell for the disposal and demolition of the subsea compression pilot at Nyhamna in Norway. The onshore Nyhamna facility processes gas from the Shell-operated Ormen Lange field located 140 km north-west of Kristiansund, in the Norwegian Sea.The gas from the field arrives onshore at the Nyhamna plant where impurities are removed and then piped through one of the world’s longest subsea pipelines, Langeled, which runs about 1,200 km from Nyhamna to Easington in England.An upgrade project, which will enable the plant to receive gas from more fields through a new pipeline, is currently in progress.Kvaerner said on Thursday that the scope of work of this new contract consists of removal and demolition of approximately 2 200 tonnes of modules. The modules will be transported from Nyhamna to Kvaerner’s facilities at Stord for dismantling and recycling. The work will start immediately and the first part, consisting of removal of modules from the test pit will be completed in 2017. The remaining modules will be removed in 2018, said Kvaerner.“This is an important contract for Kvaerner’s decommissioning unit, and yet again we prove our competitiveness in this marked,” says Guro Løken, SVP Decommissioning & Marine Operations in Kvaerner.last_img read more

Why do husbands fall in love with other women?

first_imgLifestyleRelationships Why do husbands fall in love with other women? by: familyshare.com – August 25, 2015 Share Share “Why did my husband fall in love with another woman?” It can haunt your every thought, but isn’t simply answered. Despite commitment and communication in a marriage, infidelity can still occur. Asking yourself “What went wrong” or “What did I do wrong” are painful questions, but they can help get you to the answer you are looking for. The saying goes that men are from Mars and women are from Venus. While that’s not entirely true, it does truthfully state that men and women are different…very different. Of course, this isn’t a secret; but the problem is that we rarely realize men and women are so different. When things might be going well for you, things might not be for your husband. Here are some reasons why he might choose to be unfaithful.He is looking for a friendMen hope to find a woman who is emotionally intimate; a woman who listens, who understands, a woman who is not afraid to talk about anything. That woman does not react impulsively, she understands without judging and doesn’t reply with “I told you.” While this type of woman can exist in his wife, not having this level of understanding may provoke a man to find someone who can fulfill another aspect of his relationship.Women adore playingMen might be looking for someone who is not afraid to be carefree and spontaneous. Marriage brings responsibility, no matter how good the marriage is. Men who feel tied down by commitment will seek a woman that likes to run from responsibility, someone who is a little childish and will indulge his habits of playing ball or video games. If this playfulness and fun attitude isn’t present in marriage, it could explain why he left.He wants an independent womanIt seems silly, but husbands often seek a woman who is independent. Though they’ve made a commitment in marriage, it’s not really what they want. They are looking for a woman who doesn’t really revolve around them or your family. It’s a bit paradoxical because that’s who you were before you got married. In essence, this type of man is chasing something he can’t ever have.He wants a happy womanMen want to make women happy. If it seems like happiness is a hopeless situation in his own marriage, he might see to make another woman happy outside of his marriage. Though you both have been happy together in the past, your relationship isn’t where he’d like it to be right now. He’s seeking to make someone else happy because he doesn’t think he can do the same for you.He is looking for something you don’t haveRecently, a friend told me: “I love feminine women.” It’s a selfish choice to think that your wife — the woman you are committed to — isn’t “what I want,” but it happens. It’s a shallow reason to cheat on your wife, but some men rationalize that they want to be with someone younger or with someone that is different from you.He hates tearsMy personal conclusion is that some men cheat on their wives because they hate feeling guilty or responsible for our pain and suffering. It seems easier to choose to do something so wrong, so they no longer are responsible for making things all better again. It’s a selfish way out of a situation, but it does give an escape: an escape that usually results in divorce.These reasons are hard to read, but they could give a glimpse into why this happened. Learn the ways you and your husband are different. Talk about things in depth; don’t ignore hurt feelings, complaints, or praise. Remember, it’s the lasting behaviors that create understanding and love…things that will hopefully prevent infidelity from every happening in your marriage.
