Job losses at Allied

first_imgAllied Bakeries, the company behind Kingsmill, Allinson and Burgen, plans to shut a distribution centre in Flintshire, which will put 53 jobs at risk.Allied said the decision to close the Chester Road site in Saltney was part of an “efficiency review”.The depot is due to shut in November. The company has started formal consultations with staff and unions, and said it hoped jobs could be found in other parts of the business or the wider parent company, Associated British Foods (ABF).Alyn and Deeside MP Mark Tami said the company was working to keep job losses to a minimum: “I was very disappointed to hear the news. My thoughts are with all the employees during this unsettling time.”I must commend the representatives of Allied Bakeries for all their efforts to keep the site open. Unfortunately it is a very competitive market and now we must focus on offering the employees who will be affected by this the necessary support – something I’m sure they will receive from Allied Bakeries and the relevant bodies.”Some staff will be offered the opportunity to relocate to work at the firm’s Stockport site.A spokesperson from Allied said: “We are currently consulting with our employees and their union representatives about these proposals, which if accepted would, regrettably, result in 53 people being placed at risk of redundancy.“We understand that this will be a difficult and unsettling time for our employees and their families. If the proposals are accepted, every effort will be made to help those people affected secure alternative employment, either within other parts of Allied Bakeries operations, or externally in the local area.”The company added that the decision “in no way reflects the commitment and efforts of those affected”.The Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) said it would be meeting management from Allied Bakeries on Wednesday (20 July).In March, Sunblest pancake production was overhauled at Allied East Belfast plant.last_img read more

Syracuse has lowest scoring game in 74 years against No. 11 Virginia

first_imgAs Syracuse passed the ball around the perimeter, one fan let out the cry of a flaking offense. “Someone move,” he yelled.No one did. The ball flung around the perimeter to freshman Brycen Goodine. He took a step forward and jumped. The shot was blocked. Another Syracuse possession had ended without points and the crowd groaned again. Fans flooded up the bleachers toward the exit. With a little more than five minutes to play, the Orange hadn’t cracked 30 points. When the last ball finally clanked off the rim and Syracuse players had turned their heads in anguish enough times, No. 11 Virginia (1-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) beat Syracuse (0-1, 0-1), 48-34, on Wednesday night in the Carrier Dome. It was Syracuse’s worst offensive performance in 74 years. The Orange shot 23.6% from the field, including 5-of-29 from beyond the arc. On the opening night of the 2019-20 season, Syracuse needed to find a new offensive identity. Instead, it met the strangling bully of Virginia’s pack-line defense. “We just are not ready to play against that defense,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “I thought we were going to be a little better, but we really just did not do the things offensively…we just really never got movement and when we got it, we just really didn’t get positive actions off the movement.” AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s 34 points against UVA is the lowest total any Jim Boeheim team has scored. Max Freund | Staff PhotographerSyracuse’s first opponent of the 2019-20 season wasn’t the easy win it had become accustomed to. Instead of Eastern Washington or Cornell, the Orange welcomed the defending national champions and a perennial conference juggernaut under head coach Tony Bennett. Virginia’s defense has ranked in the top 10 of Ken Pomeroy’s adjusted defensive efficiency stat each season since 2014. Boeheim described the Cavaliers as the best defense Syracuse would see all year. And without its top two scorers from a year ago, Virginia’s defense stifled the Orange. The defensive set itself, known as the pack-line, is a man-to-man. Freshman Joe Girard III noted the classic man scheme but it’s like “you’re against 1-on-5,” he said. The way Virginia sags off players who don’t have the ball creates a fortress around the paint, and Syracuse couldn’t penetrate it.“They’re always in front of you,” forward Marek Dolezaj said. “They never jump at a shot fake. They are always at the same place. They just don’t let you do anything.” So, Syracuse stood from outside the wall created by the Cavaliers and fired. Even 29 3-point attempts couldn’t bail the Orange out.It all came down to movement, both Boeheim and players said. Elijah Hughes, who led Syracuse with 14 points, admitted it can become easy to stand around when shots aren’t falling. The Virginia defense builds on its opponent, slowly lulling the players without the ball to sleep. They needed to screen the ball more. Or screen off-ball. Or screen for Hughes. Or screen for Buddy Boeheim. Packed in close, Virginia’s defense had Syracuse where it wanted: Far away from the basket. The Orange never moved so Virginia didn’t have to either. “It’s just hard,” Hughes said. “We didn’t get in a rhythm because of it and they just made it difficult for us.”Boeheim noted in the preseason that his time will rely more heavily on the 3-pointer. Numerous shots rimmed out in the first half when the Orange had open looks. More than 10 minutes into the game, Syracuse’s lone points had come from a Bourama Sidibe layup. Marek Dolezaj was one of three players to score over three points. He went 2-for-8 on the night. Max Freund | Staff PhotographerIn spurts, SU flashed what it could be offensively. On one series, a Virginia defender stuffed Hughes’ jump shot from the elbow. Syracuse retained possession though, and when Hughes drove to the basket, he finished through a foul. The redshirt junior, clenched his fists and let out a roar. That’s what this offense can be — a Hughes takeover. But it didn’t last as he clanked the ensuing free throw.Girard III, New York State’s all-time leading scorer, sank his first bucket for Syracuse against Virginia, a 3-pointer in which the ball bounced off the back of the rim and in through the mesh. Kihei Clark, the Cavaliers star guard, frequently picked Girard III up at or before the half-court marker. Girard III crossed his defender up on a drive to the basket midway through the first half, drawing a resounding “ooo” from the crowd. As the freshman guard drove toward the baseline his kick out pass was far off from any white jersey and went toward the radio announcers. As the freshman dribbled around the top just beyond the three-point arc, an extra defender sometimes slid up to help out despite Bennett waving them back. Girard III then advanced the ball on to Dolezaj in the high post. With no man on him, Dolezaj scored once. Another time he looked for a skip pass. It soared over Buddy’s head in the opposite corner. Syracuse’s offense can be a Girard III or Buddy shooting show. On Wednesday, it was off the mark.“We’ve got guys that can shoot,” Boeheim said. “I’ve got to get them in better position to get them better shots, better looks and we’ll see how we can build in the next week or so.” Syracuse kept it close with Virginia all night. The shots just never fell. At some point, it all adds up. Or in Syracuse’s case, not enough added up.  Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 6, 2019 at 11:10 pm Contact Josh: [email protected] | @Schafer_44last_img read more

Breast cancer is on the agenda

first_imgThe above infographic disproves some of the myths people believe about breast cancer and the threats it poses. (Image: Brand South Africa)Breast cancer awareness month is under way this month in South Africa and the rest of the world, when organisations, corporations and the public help to spread awareness and information about the disease.Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among South African women and the second most prevalent of all cancers among women of all races around the world. Non-melanoma skin cancer is the most common form of cancer.According to the 2009 National Cancer Registry, one in 33 South African women will suffer from breast cancer at some point during their lives.“The designation of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in South Africa reflects a nationwide drive by public and private health care structures to raise awareness of this debilitating disease across all races and class structures,” the Department of Health said in announcing the event.With health care forming an integral part of South Africa’s National Development Plan (NDP) it is important that South Africans are informed about how to ensure their wellbeing as well as of those for whom they are responsible.Raising awareness of breast cancer and arming people with a working knowledge of the disease ties in with meeting the NDP’s health care pillar.“The only way we are going to address women’s sexual and reproductive health, including cervical and breast cancer, HIV and Aids and TB, is to ensure that policies, programmes and services are integrated,” said Thobeka Madiba-Zuma, South Africa’s first lady.Madiba-Zuma was speaking in New York City on 27 and 28 September, where she used her attendance at the 70th session of the United Nation General Assembly to promote women’s health awareness. “It is my responsibility to the people of South Africa to ensure that women’s sexual and reproductive health is kept high on the national and global agenda.”AT RISKMany people believe that they have no risk of breast cancer for a number of reasons, such as the idea that if there is no known history of the disease in their family, they will not get it. Although having a history of breast cancer in your family does increase your chances of developing the disease, however, the absence of cancer in your family does not mean you are not at risk.Many people are under the impression that breast cancer is only a threat to women; contrary to popular belief, men can contract the disease as well, although they are less likely to do so than women. One in 1 249 men worldwide will get breast cancer during their lifetimes.This is because men have far less breast tissue than women and thus run less of a risk of developing cancerous cells in their breast – but that does not mean it cannot happen.Regular examination, done yourself or by a professional, as well as mammograms can go a long way to avoiding the complications inherent in late discovery of breast cancer. (Image: ICON)EARLY DIAGNOSISThroughout October, organisations such as Cansa and the Pink Drive are raising awareness of the disease. They are encouraging people to care for their health as well as support those who have the illness.Best health practices are promoted during breast cancer awareness month, and people are encouraged to undergo regular routine checks to identify the development of cancerous cells early on and take measures to reduce risk.“Early diagnosis gives the cancer patient a higher chance of complete cure and less extensive surgery,” explains Dr Sheldon Godinho, the president of the Radiological Society of South Africa. “Early detection is a critically important factor in winning the battle against breast cancer.”Regular examination, done yourself or by a professional, as well as mammograms can go a long way to avoiding the complications inherent in late discovery of breast cancer.As International Breast Cancer Month continues through October, people of all ages and genders should take the time to support those suffering from breast cancer and ensure their own health and wellness.last_img read more

First Impression: HTC Has A Winner With The One

first_imgRelated Posts HTC remains focused on sound quality, offering two front-facing stereo speakers and Beats Audio. HTC calls this package “BoomSound.”From a first-look perspective, it’s hard to think how the One could be improved upon. We’ll have a better idea when we get our hands on the device for a full review, but it seems that HTC really set the bar pretty high. HTC has been beaten down for more than a year as it tries to turn heads away from the like of Samsung and Apple. If any phone can get people to pay attention, it has to be the HTC One. Then again, quality doesn’t always win the war. We’ll know by the middle of 2013 if the HTC One is the company’s savior… or its last gasp.Event photos by Dan Rowinski. Product photos courtesy HTC. dan rowinski What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … HTC may have a winner on its hands – if only people will pay attention.The Taiwanese smartphone maker announced its new flagship device, the HTC One, at launch events in New York City and London. The events themselves were a little anti-climatic – short, full of corporate cheerleading and lacking anything of real substance. Good thing the quality of the One makes up for HTC’s lack of verve on its own.HTC president Jason Mackenzie shows off the One.Hardware DetailsWith the One, HTC has officially raised the bar for smartphone design, hardware and aesthetics. It is a trim, 4.7-inch device with an aluminum body and a 1080p screen that features 468 pixels per inch (ppi). By comparison, the iPhone 5’s “Retina” display offers 326 ppi, while the Samsung Galaxy S3 features 306 ppi. The One runs a quad-core, 1.7 GHz processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, and 2GB of RAM. It will come in two varieties – with 32GB or 64GB of storage – and will start at $199 in the United States on a two-year contract from Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T. The HTC One will begin shipping in late March, according to executives.HTC One aluminum body caseSo, that’s the HTC One from a physical standpoint. From a broad perspective, the One will be the best smartphone on the market when it ships later this spring. Nothing from competitors, major or minor, really comes close… yet. We will see how the likes of Samsung, LG, Nokia and Apple compare with their major flagships as the year goes along, but HTC has fired the first salvo in the 2013 Smartphone Wars, and it’s an impressive one.A Content PerspectiveThe One is more than just a beautiful body and hardcore specs. HTC thought a lot about experience with its new flagship and for once, a smartphone-manufacturer skin laid on top of the base Android operating system doesn’t interfere with a quality user experience. HTC lead designer Jonah Becker tells the crowd about the OneHTC has updated its Android skin Sense by building on top of successful features from its previous flagship smartphones, the One X and One X+. The One is running Android 4.1.2, which will disappoint many Android enthusiasts hoping that HTC would get in gear and release a smartphone running the most current version of the operating system (Android 4.2.2). Either way, the One still technically runs Android Jelly Bean and most, if not all, users will be hard pressed to figure out the difference. The One introduces a unique feature called “BlinkFeed” on the One’s home page that serves up social media updates, calendar events, news and other feeds in one area. HTC has partnered with 1,400 media brands that produce up to 10,000 articles a day, including ESPN, Reuters and others.A glance at BlinkFeed might lead you to think that HTC is aping Microsoft’s “Hub & Tiles” from Windows Phone or the new app panels in BlackBerry 10. That’s not really the case. Think of BlinkFeed as a kind of real-time Pulse news reader that updates automatically on one home screen. The One still lets users set up Android widgets and app icons on other home screen panels. What The Heck Is An UltraPixel? Finally, An AnswerHTC has introduced what it calls an “UltraPixel” camera that features a new sensor with larger pixels the company claims can capture 300% more light than traditional smartphone cameras, allowing it to take better low-light photos. Of course, “UltraPixel” is a marketing gimmick, although if it even comes close to working as advertised, it would be a decent achievement. HTC also announced a feature it calls Zoe, which allows users to take pictures that includes motion before and after the shutter was snapped. This isn’t exactly a new innovation, as both Samsung and BlackBerry offer something like it. But that’s not going to stop HTC from emphasizing it anyway.
