Food contest winner

admin No Comments

first_imgBy Stephanie SchupskaUniversity of GeorgiaCaroline Harless had planned to be in Swainsboro, Ga., on March 17 to prepare for hunters arriving at her Flat Creek Lodge. Instead, she stayed in Atlanta, where her Flat Creek Aztec Cheddar cheese won the third annual Flavor of Georgia food products contest.“I’m just still amazed. Amazed,” she said after Gov. Sonny Perdue announced her cheese as the 2009 grand prize winner.Flavor of Georgia 2009 was held in conjunction with Georgia Ag Day, which kicked off National Agricultural Awareness Week in Georgia. The events took place at the Georgia Freight Depot in downtown Atlanta.“I was impressed by the range of products submitted by Georgia food entrepreneurs. Despite challenging economic times, we received 112 submissions from 81 businesses from all over Georgia,” said Sharon Kane, who directed the contest. She is also a food business development specialist for the University of Georgia Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development.This was the first year that cheeses were entered in the contest, and judges took notice. “It’s definitely a cheddar,” Harless said of the Aztec cheddar. “It’s not as sharp as English or Vermont cheddar. It’s a little softer. It also has a … hint of cocoa and chili. It’s very subtle.”Flat Creek’s head cheese maker and culinary scientist Dane Huebner developed Aztec cheddar in the spring of 2008. He added cocoa and guajilla peppers to traditional, milled curd cheddar. The result is a cream-colored cheese marbled with brown and orange.“Dane is a very talented scientist, very much a food person,” Harless said. “He’s got a lot of great ideas cooking.” His next cheese project is of the sheep variety. Flat Creek Lodge currently has 40 ewes and 40 newly born lambs. Once the lambs are weaned, Huebner plans to develop different varieties of sheep’s milk cheese.Flavor of Georgia 2009 had entries as varied as peanut butter and jelly cookies, shrimp salad, jalapeno raspberry jam and peach cobbler bread.Flat Creek won the dairy category before being named overall winner. Christopher Myhre of Buzzy’s Fine Foods won the barbecue and hot sauces category with Buzzy’s Savannah Slather. Cathy Beecher of Cathy’s Sweets Inc. won the confections category with Lite Buddy candy. Janice Walters-Taylor of Appalachian Kitchens won the jams, jellies and sauces category with Miss Chatelaine’s Winter Apple Cider and Honey Spiced Red Wine Jam. Andrew Thompson of Thompson Farms won the meat category with All Natural Pork Chops. Kathy Werner of Mitera Granola won the snack foods category with Georgia Peach Granola. Douglas Horn of Vidalia Valley won the other/miscellaneous category for Southern Peach Vinaigrette. Flavor of Georgia is only a starting point for many of the category winners, Kane said. She followed up with the 2008 winners and found that nearly 90 percent increased their business contacts as a result of the contest. Also, 73 percent experienced increased interest in their products, and 70 percent saw an increase in the publicity for their products.“More than one-half of last year’s contestants saw an increase in their sales and profits following the contest,” she said.Flavor of Georgia 2009 was sponsored by the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, Georgia Agribusiness Council, the Governor’s Agricultural Advisory Commission and the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Department of Food Science and Technology.

first_imgKenyan environmental tribunal cancels license for contested Lamu coal power plant FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Daily Nation:The setting up of a coal plant in Lamu County now stands in limbo after an environment tribunal cancelled the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) license for the controversial project.The National Environment Tribunal (Net) on Wednesday faulted the National Environment Management Authority (Nema) for failing to conduct a proper EIA.Nema was also faulted for granting the project an EIA license that “appears to be generic and not specific to the project.”The tribunal said constructors of the coal plant omitted engineering plans and key facts of the project from public participation as well as failure to take consideration of Climate Change Act.The tribunal directed the coal company, Amu Power, and Nema to start a new EIA licensing process and ensure they comply with the law.More: Lamu coal plant in limbo as environment permit is cancelledlast_img read more

A 2020 forecast on the banking and payments industry

admin No Comments

first_img continue reading » According to Bloomberg’s analysis of United Nations’ data, Generation Z this year comprises 32% of the global population. By 2020, Gen Z consumers will have a greater impact on global banking and payments than ever before as they encroach on the market and emerge as the main customer base for banks. As the first generation of true digital natives, this transition will create a fundamental shift in how banking is consumed.Gen Z will drive an increase in conversational finance – specifically chatbots. We have already seen this happen in China, which has a very young population. There, the tech-savvy youth are embracing mobile payments and WeChat Pay at an ever increasing rate – according to Shrey Rastogi, Senior payments Strategist at Temenos. In fact, WeChat Pay is on track to handle one billion payments annually. As China adapts its banking models to suit this new customer base, in 2020 we will see the rest of the world follow suit.Gen Z may not represent the most profitable customer base for banks at the moment. However, their numbers and influence will soon become so significant that banks will have no choice but to redesign their services to suit their needs and requirements. In 2020, banks will need to incentivise their products and services, adding value, personalisation and even gamification techniques in order to retain a customer base that is by nature less loyal to their bank than previous generations.” 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

admin No Comments

first_imgThe report contained some good news, some bad, as the department predicted growth across the board in the future, but some significant industries are still on the decline. (WBNG) — On Wednesday, the New York State Department of Labor released a report outlining the economic future of the Southern Tier. Every year the department issues a report naming 12 significant industries in our area. In 2019, those industries were largely based in manufacturing, health care and education. The Department of Labor predicts a 6.8% growth in jobs in our area from 2016 to 2026– with the largest growth expected to come in the ambulance services and warehouse and storage industries.center_img Overall, jobs decreased by 1% in the Southern Tier from 2013-2018. “We’re likely to still have some pains moving forward in industry categories that are cheaper done overseas or technology is taking over, some components of it,” said Christian Harris, a regional labor analyst for the state.last_img read more

No one wants to play games without the fans.“Until a decision is made on how we go on from here, then we just have to deal with it. But when it happens, we are still bringing the title to our fans, definitely.”Liverpool could have wrapped up the title on Monday with a win at Everton if Manchester City were beaten by Burnley on Saturday, but both those games were postponed, along with the rest of the Premier League programme.Some have suggested the season should be scrapped for safety reason, which would leave Premier League chiefs to decide if Liverpool should be given the title even though the campaign did not reach its scheduled 38-game conclusion.

Back to the Umpire

admin No Comments

first_imgWhile Sally & I were having lunch with Ray & Celia Gibson the other day, Ray & I started talking about the good old days when we both played baseball at Batesville High School.  When Ray & I played, you had one plate umpire and one base umpire and their word was rule.  If Pots called you out on strikes, you could argue till the cows came home, but you were still going to be out!If you watch baseball today, you have to put up with long delays while 2 or 3 umpires go over to the phones and call New York.  One of the umpiring crews is sitting in an electronic studio watching plays come in from all baseball sites.  They take the play cel by cel until they make a decision.  This is supposed to take only a couple minutes, but it stretches to as much as 5 on many occasions.  No wonder an average game takes 3+ hours to complete.Ray made this comment “give the game back to the umpires” and let’s play ball!!last_img read more
