Mr Kipling revives ‘exceedingly good’ descriptor

first_imgMr Kipling is returning to its “exceedingly good” strapline with a new £2.5m marketing campaign.The campaign will feature a new TV advert based on the theme of “exceedingly good distractions”, in which the company’s French Fancies are used to distract the attention of family members when a couple’s holiday slides become embarrassing.The move marks the return of the slogan after a two-year absence for the Premier Foods-owned company, which last used it in 2014.The 30-second advert is launching today on ITV and another is planned for later in the year.Phil Ellis, marketing director of sweet treats at Premier Foods, said: “Mr Kipling is one of the nation’s favourite snacktime treats. We’ve taken a close look at the fantastic heritage of the brand and translated this in a fresh and relevant way – highlighting the range of moments in our lives when cake can provide the ultimate in indulgence and distraction.”The advert is the first McCann London has produced for the Mr Kipling brand, taking over responsibilities from JWT London. Both McCann London and JWT London continue to work on promotions for Premier Foods’ goods.Alex Lubar, chief executive officer of McCann London, said: “Mr Kipling is an iconic component of our nation’s snacking. We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to work on this campaign, helping to build on the brand’s recent success with the next stage of creative development.”The news comes soon after Premier Foods revealed it had held “constructive” discussions with takeover suitor McCormick.See below for the full advert:last_img read more

Confectionery expert Hugh Weeks passes away

first_imgHugh Weeks, one the bakery industry’s leading confectionery experts and demonstrators, has passed away, aged 85 years.Widely respected across the trade, Hugh held positions including head of the demonstration department at cake decoration supplier Renshaw.He was an honorary member of the British Confectioners’ Association; a judge at many bakery and food competitions; and a keen supporter of charitable and training initiatives, holding the role of president of the National Federation of Bakery Student Societies, now the Alliance for Bakery Students and Trainees.Hugh received British Baker’s Baking Industry Award for a lifetime of service to the industry and was elected a freeman of the Worshipful Company of Bakers in 2006.“Hugh Weeks was a legend, a true craftsman. His passion for creating perfect confectionery was only matched by his enthusiasm for passing on his skills and knowledge,” said The British Confectioners’ Association.Hugh’s career began at his father’s bakery in Uckfield, Sussex, and he joined Renshaw as a demonstrator in 1957.He worked his way up to become head of the demonstration department and an associate director of the company, which said he “succeeded brilliantly at a task that combined the roles of demonstrator, technical expert and expert presenter”.“He was a very caring manager of his team, and took a personal interest in their wellbeing, and that of other members of the company, not only during his career, but right up to the present day,” added Renshaw.Hugh’s work with the company took him to bakeries and food companies of all sizes in the UK and overseas. He was one of the few people allowed airside at Heathrow airport to supervise the loading of fragile food samples. One of his tasks was to monitor supplies to, and work with, the catering team at Buckingham Palace. Hugh worked very hard to maintain and develop the relationship with the Palace team, said Renshaw, offering help and advice when needed.He also prepared and managed the Renshaw Cup course.Hugh retired in January 1995 but, right up until his death this month, he continued to support charitable and training initiatives.Industry pays tribute to Hugh WeeksAlliance for Bakery Students and Trainees (ABST)“It is with enormous sadness that we heard the news that Hugh Weeks has passed away.“As a past president and regular competition judge, Hugh has a special place in the history and heart of the ABST and we shall fondly remember him for his passion for excellence in baking, and his determination to pass on his vast knowledge and skills to countless students down the years.“He was always ready and willing to talk to the student body about the art and craft of baking; and he shall be greatly missed for his patience and understanding as he generously gave of his time and experience to those at the beginning of their careers.“The executive committee and all of the members of the ABST extend our sincere condolences to Hugh’s family and friends at this sad time.”Tim Cutress, Hon Secretary, The British Confectioners’ Association (BCA)“Hugh was elected as a member of the BCA in 1973, having been proposed by my father, Tony Cutress.“In my lifetime I have been fortunate to see many of the top demonstrators. Without doubt the quality of Hugh’s craftsmanship together with his unique verbal accompaniment made him the finest of his generation.“In 2004 Hugh was made an honorary member of the association and he has continued to attend virtually every one of the five meetings, held each year hosted at members’ businesses in the United Kingdom and abroad, up until our last AGM held in Belfast in September 2017.“Successive chairmen have benefited from his unstinting support, including being MC, organising our unique table plan ballot which prevents the formation of cliques, judging product appraisals and organising displays at exhibitions.“He has always found time to assist anyone with a product issue particularly if it involved almonds!”last_img read more

Releases like this tie back to one of the core values of PowerOne: it is built as an all-in-one system. Users will have more insight into the physical and virtual operations as they are occurring, and as always that information can be passed via API to their tools of choice. Component updates across the full stack give our customers peace of mind, removing the burden of lifecycle management.The introduction of Unity XT midrange storage means that PowerOne expands autonomous operations into a broader range of Dell EMC products and extends infrastructure flexibility. PowerOne with Unity XT enables users to consolidate more workloads, start with a smaller footprint, and lower the cost of entry. Taking advantage of the unique system level management of PowerOne, Unity XT can be declaratively configured through the single system-level GUI or API allowing for integration into existing data center toolsets and a true Infrastructure-as-Code experience. ​At the same time, customers have access to directly control the array, giving them the ability to adopt automation at their pace. Unity XT shines in the following areas:Workload consolidation – As IT leaders look to accommodate growth in the data center, workload consolidation is one of the best ways to reduce silos, gain efficiencies and leverage expensive real estate. The addition of Unity XT midrange storage means customers can run a mix of high performance and low latency workloads in a single automated system. ​Scale and Agility – PowerOne with Unity XT enables customers to start smaller and grow larger and helps administrators provide the right mix of performance and efficiency for use in their data center. ​Lower cost of entry and flexible consumption – The mantra of IT is “do more with less.” PowerOne with Unity XT balances performance, density and cost helping our customers address this with a lower cost of entry and offering pay-as-you-go financial models to convert CAPEX to OPEX.​Stay on the lookout for more innovation this year as we continue to expand the capabilities and use cases of PowerOne.One of the features we probably don’t highlight enough is the ability of PowerOne to offer both operational consistency and flexibility. For users who are ready to adopt infrastructure automation, PowerOne provides a single API to manage most aspects of initialization, day 1 production cluster start-up as well as lifecycle management and expansion. For users who still need granular control of some or all components within the system the element managers of each component are still available for direct login so they can manually set parameters.Dell Technologies has built the infrastructure automation, so you don’t have to. We provide deep integration, writing API hooks into each component (server, storage and networking) ensuring that they are all interoperable. This saves time and money by setting a strategy, identifying and configuring tools and writing thousands of lines of code. And Dell Technologies commitment to maintain and update the code, as well as introduce new technology into the system as it becomes available, ensures that the day 2+ operations are as automated as possible, reducing OPEX and technical debt.Now that Unity XT is part of PowerOne, users can drive adoption and productivity faster without having to learn how to operate and manage a new component. And as part of the consistent operations of PowerOne they can take advantage of the flexibility and efficiency to begin immediately running new workloads.Please take a few minutes to look at the ESG whitepaper or video review below of how PowerOne’s automation features can significantly decrease the manual work typically required to configure, deploy, and administer data center IT architecture.last_img read more

Why millennials & minorities face tougher times with debt

U.S. ATM count hits half-million mark

first_imgThe number of ATMs in the United States has grown to between 475,000 and 500,000, according to new data out this week from the ATM Industry Association.The trade group reported that the financial services industry has been adding more terminals after years of dealing with a struggling American economy, as well as the challenges of Windows upgrades and EMV migration. The data suggests that about 16% of the world’s ATMs are in the United States.“These numbers confirm what we have suspected in recent months,” ATMIA U.S. Executive Director David Tente said. “There is growing recognition of the important role that ATMs play in our payments system, and alongside of it, in a new wave of branch transformation that is sweeping through the banking industry.” 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

45th Indonesian avian flu death confirmed, team investigates possible cluster

first_imgAug 17, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – A World Health Organization (WHO) reference laboratory confirmed today that a 9-year-old Indonesian girl from the remote Garut district in West Java province who died on Aug 15 had H5N1 avian influenza virus.The girl’s symptoms developed on Aug 1 and she was hospitalized the day before she died. Recent chicken deaths were reported in her household. She becomes Indonesia’s 58th case and its 45th fatality. Indonesia has the world’s highest number of avian flu fatalities, and the girl’s case is the country’s third case in 2 weeks.Investigators are assessing recent bird-flu related events in three hamlets in the girl’s village, which is about 93 miles southeast of Jakarta. The 17-year-old boy who was Indonesia’s 57th case (confirmed by the WHO on Aug 14) is from the same village but lives in a different hamlet. The WHO said the boy is recovering.When the boy became ill, his 20-year-old cousin developed severe respiratory symptoms but died on Aug 5 before he could be hospitalized or tested for the H5N1 avian influenza virus. “Based on epidemiological and clinical findings, however, infection with the H5N1 virus is strongly suspected,” the WHO said in its report.The boy and his cousin developed symptoms on Jul 26, and investigators assume they acquired their infection from the same environmental source. The WHO pointed out that the currently recognized incubation period for H5N1 infection of 2 to 8 days makes human-to-human transmission between the two highly improbable.Teams that include authorities from the local health department, the Indonesia Ministry of Health, and the WHO are in the three hamlets investigating these cases. Animal health experts are also on the scene. Recent unexplained poultry deaths have occurred in the village, and exposure to sick chickens was documented in all three cases.Local publicity surrounding the recent avian influenza events, along with the presence of the investigative teams, have prompted additional patients to be screened for presence of the H5N1 virus. The WHO said rumors of additional late July and early August deaths from respiratory disease in the hamlets are being investigated.Initial media reports noted that the hamlets were difficult to reach by road or phone, but the WHO said good field communications have been established with the Ministry of Health.An Associated Press (AP) report today said that a total of seven confirmed or suspected bird flu deaths have occurred in the village. Health officials told the AP they were awaiting lab results for a girl who was hospitalized yesterday in West Java’s capital, Bandung, where she received the antiviral drug oseltamivir. Besides the 20-year-old man mentioned in the WHO report, the AP said three others from the same area died before testing for the H5N1 virus could be performed.See also:Aug 17 update on Indonesia situation read more
