first_imgWithdrawn by NaCTSO,With the festive rush about to get underway, Counter Terrorism Policing is today, Monday 19th November, launching its biggest-ever winter advertising campaign to the public, as part of ACT: Action Counters Terrorism.This campaign aims to encourage the public to remain vigilant, look out for suspicious behaviour and inform people how to report their concerns, providing a ‘whole society’ approach where police, security staff, retail workers and the public come together to minimise the chance of attacks and mitigate the impact they can have.That is what the ‘Step Change’ initiative – which aims to bring the public and private sectors together to collaborate on security matters – is all about, meaning retailers and other businesses operating in crowded places are also being asked to play their part in countering the terrorist threat.Businesses can do this in two ways, the first being to sign up to ACT Awareness e-learning, the innovative online training scheme designed to help industry better understand, and mitigate against, current terrorist methodology.Developed in a ground-breaking partnership between Counter Terrorism Policing and retail giant Marks & Spencer, it covers how to spot the signs of suspicious behaviour and what to do if an attack should take place.Free to use, the course can be divided into short sections to suit business needs. However it takes just 45 minutes in total to complete – 45 minutes that could save lives.Secondly, experts from Counter Terrorism Policing will be asking businesses to think about their contingency plans this Christmas, asking them to draw up a ‘Sixty Second Security’ plan which has the power to improve their reaction to emergency situations.Designed to be a quick checklist which can improve staff reactions in the event of an emergency, it requires businesses to ensure all their staff know the answers to simple questions such as: Who is appointed to make decisions on the shop floor, and do they know what they’re doing? How do you enter and exit the building in emergency? How do you lock down quickly? Where can you hide? How do you communicate and how do you stay updated if you find yourself in a RHT scenario? Have you briefed your staff? Specialist advice for companies operating in crowded places, such as major events, sport stadia, visitor attractions, bars, theatres and shopping centres, is available on the National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO) website along with CT Policing’s new ACT Awareness e-Learning tool. All staff working in crowded places – not just those who have a security role – can follow the ACT Awareness e-Learning course and be in a stronger position to help protect themselves, colleagues and the public. I would also like to ask retailers and other businesses to consider my ‘Sixty Second Security’ plan, which is a quick checklist of questions every member of staff should be able to answer in order to drastically improve reaction times in the event of an emergency. Last year on Oxford Street we saw a fight at a Tube station cause panic when people believed that a terrorist attack had occurred. In the rush to keep themselves safe, some people suffered serious injuries and businesses were severely disrupted. By working alongside those businesses, we have learnt from that experience and I believe that our ‘Sixty Second Security’ plan will better prepare us to deal with something similar in the future. Launching the campaign, the national Coordinator for Protect and Prepare, Chief Superintendent Nick Aldworth, said:last_img read more


first_imgThe Real Good Food Co has suffered almost a 6% drop in revenue, after lower sugar volumes hit performance in the six months to 30 September 2013.Group revenue dropped from £137.8m to £130.14m, while ebita fell 27% from £3.02m for the comparable period last year, to £2.2m. However, the firm said this was primarily a reflection of its planned investment of £700,000 across the group.The company said its financial performance had been “largely as we expected”, as it continued to re-shape the business by investing in its branded offering and additional sales management.Pieter Totté, executive chairman, said: “In Napier Brown we face a significant challenge over the coming months, following the well-publicised dramatic drop in EU sugar market prices as we bring our buying book in line with this correction in market prices.”He added that Napier’s sales volumes had increased significantly from the start of the new contract season in October 2013.“Elsewhere within the group, our branding and sales initiatives at Renshaw, R&W Scott and Haydens are delivering in line with our expectations and we anticipate that in our next financial year some 25% of group sales will be represented by branded product. This demonstrates how our business model is evolving.”Its patisserie and desserts business Hayden’s Bakery saw sales in the first half of the year, up 11.6% on the same period last year, with growth coming from existing and new customers across both retail and foodservice channels.last_img read more


first_img Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Questions like this motivated MLB to select the independent Atlantic League as a petri dish for experimental rules in 2019. Among them: a radar-tracking device to help home plate umpires call balls and strikes, wider bases, a three-batter minimum for relief pitchers, a ban on certain infield shifts, and an extra two feet between the mound and home plate. In an interview with The Trentonian, the Atlantic League’s president explained the reason for the experiment.“(MLB’s) contention is people who go to games – and they aren’t directing this at millennials, they’re directing this at fans – want to see baserunners, catching, throwing, hitting, all of that dynamic stuff that occurs in a game,” Rick White said. “They’re concerned that’s coming out of the game. If one looks at just about every one of these initiatives, and our league has looked at 30 potential initiatives that they have very carefully presented to us, just about all of them deal with the idea of increased action in a game.”Here’s the thing: There are strategic reasons why action has decreased. Hitters are encouraged to draw walks and hit home runs, and pitchers chase strikeouts because it helps their teams win. All of these so-called “true outcomes” keep the ball from landing in the field of play. They reduce action. Defensive shifts and one-batter relievers also offer tactical advantages against certain hitters. These strategies aren’t new; they’re merely enjoying a wave of popularity among front office number-crunchers. But strategies wax and wane in every sport. When should a strategy elicit a change to the rules of the game?This question guided the evolution of baseball in the 19th century, Thorn said. Intentionally throwing pitches out of the strike zone was integral to a pitcher’s game plan for years. When it became obvious that hitting a pitch a foot off the plate was impossible, the strike zone was born.The past century has been marked by equilibrium. The last major rule change was in 1973, when the American League introduced designated hitters. The calendar suggests it’s time for another change. So does baseball’s analytically-driven style of play, at least in the eyes of MLB. In the war between science and aesthetics, the league is effectively trying to save teams from themselves.I’m relatively agnostic when it comes to changing the rules or leaving them alone. My strongest feelings are reserved for matters of safety, or the rare instance when no strike zone exists where one should – a rule so obvious you wonder how you ever lived without it.The phenomenon known as “service time manipulation” is one such flaw. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit .381 across four minor league levels last year as a 19-year-old. Healthy or not, he won’t begin the 2019 season on the Blue Jays’ roster because A), Toronto’s front office isn’t pretending the team will contend for a playoff spot and B), it can retain Guerrero’s exclusive negotiating rights for an extra year by promoting him to the majors at the end of April. This is owed to an arcane rule about how many days a player must spend on a team’s active roster to accrue a “year” of service time.That rule, regardless of its intent, has the effect of keeping some of baseball’s best players in the minor leagues. Fixing the rule won’t affect gameplay. Still, Guerrero personifies a front office acting “smart” within the rules while simultaneously harming the aesthetics of baseball’s product. Commissioner Rob Manfred didn’t deny the problem when he addressed reporters last month in Phoenix.“I think both bargaining parties, if you gave them truth serum, would tell you that we have struggled … with exactly what the mechanism is that solves this issue,” Manfred said. “I think the problem comes down to the fact that clubs have always – and it should be this way – have the right to decide who’s going to be on their roster at a particular point in time. It’s hard to figure out a mechanism that you can impose on top of that really fundamental right that gets you to the result that you may want to achieve.”Related Articles PHOENIX — For the last seven years every March, baseball people have gathered here at a downtown hotel to discuss baseball. The SABR Analytics conference attracts all sorts. College students presenting research papers, hoping to improve their job prospects. Bloggers. Research and development people, player development people, even the occasional big league general manager. The tie that binds them is a desire to know more about baseball. With 15 spring training camps in a 23-mile radius, it’s an ideal setting.A team of coeds was giving a presentation about defensive shifts Sunday when I ducked into the lobby of the Hyatt Regency. So did John Thorn, the official historian of Major League Baseball. We needed a breather.I told Thorn that I scour the conference’s forest of trends for the coolest tree every year. This year, though, the forest seemed like the story. It’s getting huge – easy to get lost in and hard to find your way out. Consider that today’s college grads are among the first to enter a baseball workforce featuring an in-house research and development unit within all 30 organizations. Front offices that dwarf the size of active rosters are all they’ve ever known. The baseball landscape grows more ripe for analytic innovation every year.The next generation of baseball executives will take for granted the ruthless pursuit of efficiency – extracting the most value out of a roster by whatever means available. This process has evolved into a science during their lifetimes. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Think about that sentence. It captures everything at stake in the war between science and aesthetics. Choosing the right mechanisms to impose. Deciding the type of changes that are worth fighting for. Defining the fundamental rights of a player and of a team.When I asked Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill about the changes coming to the Atlantic League, where he pitched in 2015, it evoked his concept of what’s fundamental about baseball.“Leave it as it is,” Hill said. “The game’s perfectly designed the way it’s supposed to be designed. If you want to turn it into what the WWE is, that’s what we can do. Make it an entertainment business, which it is. It already is entertainment. You’re treated like entertainers, you’re paid like entertainers, you’re taxed like entertainers. Just turn it into the WWE. Go all the way. Start pitching from second base.”Hill was kidding. (Maybe he’d just been watching too much wrestling.) Anyway, there’s no rule preventing analysts from convening to discuss baseball’s aesthetics. They could probably benefit from inviting more outside voices into their silo – players, historians, even Vince McMahon. Thorn suggested counting a two-strike foul ball as a strikeout. That would quicken games, encourage batters to hit more balls in play, and reduce the likelihood of fans getting injured (or killed) by foul balls. Those are noble goals which, in 2019, means the rule could be coming to an independent league near you. That’s well and good, but what about the TV show? You remember television, right? The revenue-generating technology that broadened baseball’s visibility and allows teams to employ dozens of executives in the first place? That thing we call “entertainment”?“The war in baseball is between science and aesthetics,” Thorn said, “and the people in there don’t give a (crap) about aesthetics.”You won’t hear a more succinct summary of the state of analytics in 2019. Not only has it lost sight of the forest, it’s stumbled into a war.The goals of quantitative analysts and the goals of marketers aren’t inherently in conflict. Sometimes they line up. Other times they don’t. The things that make baseball more or less marketable are largely a matter of opinion.For example, say you love the drama of the pitcher-hitter matchup in a long at-bat. The 2018 season was a banner year. The average number of pitches per plate appearance increased to 3.89, the most since pitch data has been recorded. If the trend continues, at-bats will last even longer in 2019. Now take the extreme opposite: If the batter put the first pitch into play every time, your primary interest would vanish, yet the pace of each game would never be faster.

first_imgNyamityobora will be relegated if they fail to win on Saturday (file photo)StarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueNyamityobora FC vs Maroons FCKakyeka Stadium, MbararaSaturday, 20-04-2019 @4pmMBARARA – Life in the top tier is always difficult in your debut season and Nyamityobora FC have justified that statement to perfection throughout the entire 2018/19 StarTimes Uganda Premier League season.Currently sitting second from bottom, the Abanyakare are preparing for life in the second tier of Ugandan football (FUFA Big League) as there are no clear signs that they will be able to fend off relegation.Their cause has not been helped by the consistent off the pitch incidents that have been bothering the side throughout the season. Currently, under their third coach in a period of fewer than 8 months, the Abanyakare have also faced several player revolts that have seen them lose key players throughout the season.On Saturday afternoon, they will join Paidha Black Angels as the two sides so far relegated to the Big League,that is if they do not defeat Maroons FC at Kakyeka Stadium.With a tally of 17 points, Nyamityobora are currently 11 points away from 13th spot, the first safety spot in the League and with only four games to play, not even a draw is of any sort of help to the Ben Misagga chaired side.As they think of a possibility of three points on Saturday, Nyamityobora should be worried that they are facing a potential relegation-mate in Maroons as the Prison side can also still face the drop.Currently, on 29 points, Maroons start the day only four points away from the relegation zone and with as many as 9 points there to be contested for by both SC Villa and Ndejje University, below them, Maroons will also be craving for the points.Maroons are just four points away from the relegation zone (file photo)This promises to be a contest for the ages, one that will have adverse effects on who features in the top tier next season.Match Facts:This will be only the second ever competitive meeting between Nyamityobora and Maroons.In the first meeting which happened four months ago, Maroons defeated Nyamityobora 2-1 at the Luzira Prisons grounds.In their last games, Nyamityobora drew 1-1 at home to URA FC while Maroons lost 2-0 away to Vipers SC.Going into the game on Saturday, Nyamityobora have won only one of their last 10 League games (D2 L7). The sole victory in that period came in the 1-0 defeat of Onduparaka at the start of March.At home, the Abanyakare have lost only two of their last 7 League games, winning two and drawing the other three.For Maroons, they head into the game without a victory in their last four League games, losing twice and drawing as many.Away from home, the Prison side have won only one of their last six fixtures (D2 L3).Against the three sides that were promoted to the top tier at the beginning of the season, Maroons have won three, drawn one and lost one of the five games so far.The other games on Saturday:-KCCA FC vs Express FC-Onduparaka FC vs Bul FC-Tooro United vs Mbarara City FCFriday’s results:-Vipers SC 1-2 URA FC-Bright Stars FC 1-1 Police FCComments Tags: Maroons FCNyamityobora FCStarTimes Uganda Premier Leaguelast_img read more

first_imgScience in Africa: Fog-harvesting for water: clouds on tapNational Geographic: Water harvested from clouds in rural South Africa South Africa is following the lead of a desert beetle in tackling the problem of water scarcity in the country’s drought-prone Limpopo province, where remote rural communities live far from reliable water sources – yet in areas that are often shrouded in mist. According to the Science in Africa website, which ran an article on the Tshanowa Primary School project some years ago, “each fog collector consists of three 6m-high wooden poles, mounted 9m apart. Steel cables stretch horizontally between the poles, and from each pole to the ground. A double layer of 30 percent shade cloth is draped over the cables, and fixed to the poles on each side. With the nearest water sources being a non-perennial spring about two kilometres away, and a dam about five kilometres away – and with water source contamination rife in the province – the fognets have given the school children and the wider community a lifeline. It’s a method followed by the Namib fog beetle, which has net-like hairs on its underside that enables it to harvest water from the sea-fog that rolls in over the desert every morning. “Within four days of completion, school children and members of the local community were drinking water collected by the fog screen … the giant fog screens at Tshanowa Junior Primary School … are providing pupils and members of the community an average of between 150 litres and 250 litres of water per day.” “Water dripping from the net into the gutter runs through a sand filter and is then emptied into a tipping bucket,” Science in Africa reporterd. “From there, it flows into a 10kl storage tank further down the slope. Two additional tanks were erected at the school to collect the overflow from the first. An automatic weather station was also installed to record rainfall, wind speed and wind direction. “These fognets have over the years been providing water to local communities,” Deputy Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Rejoice Mabudafhasi said at the launch of the Fognet Project at the Mphephu Holiday Resort in Limpopo this week. For years now, members of Vondo Village, in the Thulamela Municipality in Limpopo, have been implementing an innovative solution to their water shortage problem, using special nets erected at Tshanowa Primary School to harvest drinking water from fog. Now, Unisa and University of Pretoria have partnered with the South African Weather Service and the Department of Water Affairs to give the Tshanowa Primary School project additional backing, while formalising it and extending it to Tshiavha Primary School in Tshiavha village, also in the Thulamela Municipality. Members of the two universities and the South African Weather Service are training members of the two communities to maintain the fognets. The Tshanowa Primary School research project was led by University of South Africa (Unisa) climatologist Jana Olivier, an associate professor at Unisa’s School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences. Olivier has since been involved in setting up similar research projects in half a dozen places across South Africa. Mabudafhasi added that the Fognet Project had the additional virtue of bridging the gap between science and day-to-day living. 27 August 2010 SAinfo reporter, Science in Africa and National Geographiclast_img read more


first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Harold Watters, Ohio State University Extension agronomistWe are monitoring wheat disease in an effort led by OSU Extension wheat specialist, Pierce Paul.We follow growth stages of wheat to know when to apply herbicides safely but also to know when, or if, we should apply fungicides. Growers who rely on the height of the crop as an indicator of crop development may miss Feekes Growth Stage 6, a critical growth stage for herbicide application, and Feekes GS 8, a critical stage for managing foliar diseases with fungicides. Do not rely on the height of the plants or calendar dates alone (especially this year) to make your management decisions. Walk fields, pull tillers from multiple places, remove the lower leaves, and examine these tillers for the presence of nodes and the emergence of the flag leaf. At Feekes GS 8 the tip of the flag leaf, the fourth leaf above the first node, is visible. Plants of different heights and sizes may all be at the same growth stage. Feekes 8 marks the beginning of the period during which we recommend that fields be scouted to determine which disease is present and at what level.Results from university studies have shown that the greatest benefits from foliar fungicide applications were obtained when applications were made between Feekes 8 and 10. This is largely because most of our major foliar diseases usually develop and reach the flag leaf after Feekes 8-9. For Head scab, we need to protect the plant at flowering so closer to Feekes 10.5 — that will be later in May. Septoria and Powdery MildewSeptoria develops best under cool, wet conditions with frequent rainfall, whereas powdery mildew likes cool, humid conditions.Scout for powdery mildew and Septoria on the lower leaves. Unlike head scab, fungicide applications for these and other foliar disease do not have to be made at one specific growth stage. Instead, applications are based on disease thresholds, weather conditions, and variety susceptibility.For instance, if it stays cool and wet and a few lesions are observed on the leaves below the flag leaf, a fungicide should be applied to protect the flag leaf if the variety is susceptible.On the other hand, if it stops raining and warms up, you may want to save your fungicide application for head scab and late-season diseases like Stagonospora and rust, as warm weather usually prevents both powdery mildew and Septoria from spreading up the plant.If you still plan to apply a fungicide to control early-season diseases, choose one like Propiconazole or Tebuconazole that are cheap, but effective. Rarely are two fungicide applications necessary or economically beneficial in Ohio, but, if an inexpensive fungicide is applied early in the season, then it may be feasible to make a second application at flowering to manage scab and late-season diseases. Stagonospora and rustsStagonospora is very similar to Septoria in that it develops best under wet, rainy conditions, but unlike Septoria, it likes warm instead of cool weather condition. So, although Stagonospora can affect the crop at any growth stage, it tends to be most severe late in the growing season. In fact, conditions that are favorable for head scab are also favorable for Stagonospora leaf and glume blotch. It therefore means that a single application at flowering is often effective against both head scab and Stagonospora.This is also true for the rust diseases. Since the rust fungi cannot overwinter in Ohio, spores have to be blown up from the south, and this usually occurs during the latter half of the season. In most years, the first symptoms of rust are observed between the boot and flowering growth stages, making a fungicide application at flowering also effective against these diseases. However, it is not uncommon for rust to develop early in the season, particularly in the southern half of the state. Head scab on wheatIt is still too early to apply a fungicide to manage head scab. Use the scab forecast system (http://www.wheatscab.psu.edu/) to monitor concerns. If you plan to spray for head scab, Prosaro or Caramba should be your fungicides of choice. The new fungicide, Miravis Ace, which seems to be just as effective as Prosaro and Caramba, based on a limited number of trials, may not yet be available. Stay away from the strobilurins when it comes to head scab management — these fungicides tend to increase rather than reduce vomitoxin contamination.I know that the idea of “protecting the crop” with a “preventative treatment” seems to suggest that the fungicide has to be applied before the crop reaches the critical growth state — flowering in the case of wheat. But results from more than 20 years of scab research show that you are better off applying a few days “late” rather than a few days “early.” Remember, with head scab you are also trying to reduce grain contamination with vomitoxin, and fungicides are certainly more effective against this toxin when applied at or 4 to 6 days after flowering for wheat.last_img read more
