first_imgNine out of 10 consumers expect food prices to rise in the year ahead and 29% intend to swap to discounters, new research has revealed.The IGD ShopperTrack, commissioned recently by the research group, also found that 16% intend to use more frozen food specialists.The news that more people intend to shop at discount retailers comes just after Lidl revealed plans to expand its own in-store bakeries (ISBs). The German retailer, with over 580 stores in the UK, has completed stage one of the project, installing ISBs in 75 stores in its north east sales region, bringing its total number of outlets with ISBs in the UK to 90.Joanne Denney-Finch, chief executive of IGD, commenting on the research, said: “The vast majority of shoppers believe that food inflation is set to increase over the next 12 months. They are not taking it lying down and are prepared to sacrifice some of their time by shopping around at different retail formats, from discounters to frozen food stores, to get the best deals.”The IGD study also found that shoppers with secondary school children are more likely to increase their use of grocery discounters; 39% of shoppers with children aged 11-18 vs 27% of those without children expect to increase their use of grocery discounters over the next year.last_img read more

Increase in winter coyote sightings is no cause for alarm

first_imgStatewide—It’s that time of year again – coyotes are on the move, and Indiana residents might see them more, but this should not be a cause for alarm.Coyotes are common everywhere in the state, even in urban areas. Coyotes become more active during winter, and the bare vegetation this time of year increases the chance of catching a glimpse. Young coyotes leave their parents to find a new home, making them more likely to be seen during winter. And in January, coyotes will be looking to breed, making them even more active. Seeing more coyotes does not mean they are increasing in number.Where people are, coyotes follow. Coyotes like to eat animals and plants that thrive around yards and homes, including rabbits, mice, fruit and squirrels. They thrive around people because of the abundant food that comes with human development. Coyotes are a common member of Indiana’s urban wildlife community, as are raccoons, red foxes, and opossums. Coyotes are also an important member of Indiana’s wildlife community, helping control rodent populations and cleaning up carrion.Coyotes typically weigh between 20-30 pounds and are similar in height to a German Shepherd. Winter fur, which is thicker, makes coyotes appear bigger than they actually are, potentially causing concern. To reduce the possibility of pets having a negative interaction with coyotes or any other wildlife, keep pets leashed, in a kennel with a secure top, or indoors.Problems between coyotes and people are uncommon. Follow these tips for making your property less attractive to coyotes:– Clean up fallen fruit from trees or gardens.– Keep garbage secure.– Make sure pet food and treats are not left outside.– If you see a coyote around your yard, take down birdfeeders; coyotes could be attracted to the rodents eating the seeds.– Never intentionally feed a coyote, which could result in its losing its fear of people.Making a coyote feel unwelcome around people can help maintain its natural fear of humans, but never corner or chase a coyote – you should always allow it to have a clear escape path to get away from you.If you see a coyote and want it to go away, try to make it uncomfortable:– Yell.– Wave your arms.– Spray it with a hose.– Throw tennis balls or small stones at it, but don’t throw anything that could be food, like apples.– Carry a jar of coins to shake or a small air horn to make noise.To learn more about coyotes click here.last_img read more

Paralympic Games ‘return home’ to UK

first_imgThe Queen has declared the London 2012 Paralympics officially open, during a spectacular opening ceremony watched by some 80,000 spectators.Britain’s first Paralympic Games gold medallist, Margaret Maughan, 84, had the honour of lighting the cauldron.Paralympics chief Lord Coe told the crowd: “Prepare to be inspired, prepare to be dazzled, prepare to be moved.”The Queen said: “The Games are returning to the country where they first began, more than 60 years ago.”Earlier, athletes paraded around the Olympic Stadium, with ParalympicsGB entering last to huge cheers.‘Games to remember’ The opening ceremony, co-directed by Jenny Sealey and Bradley Hemmings, signalled the start of 11 days of competition by 4,200 athletes from 164 countries, including more than 300 athletes from the home nation.Wheelchair basketball, shooting, swimming and track cycling are among the events set to feature on the opening day.Lord Coe told the crowd at the east London stadium: “It is my great honour to say welcome home to the Paralympic Games.”He said Britain “was ready” and the crowds in attendance would be “unprecedented”, adding: “These will be a Games to remember.”Eight members of the British under-22 wheelchair basketball team were given the honour of carrying the Paralympic flag into the stadium. It was raised by members of the armed forces, before the Queen declared the Games open. British swimmer Liz Johnson, a medallist from Beijing 2008, wheelchair rugby judge Richard Allcroft and David Hunter, who is coaching the ParalympicsGB equestrian team, each stepped forward to take the official oaths on behalf of competitors and officials.At the close of the ceremony, 24-year-old Royal Marine Commando Joe Townsend – an aspiring Olympic triathlete, who lost both legs while serving in Afghanistan – descended on a zip wire into the stadium from the top of the nearby Orbit tower.He handed the flame to David Clarke, a member of the ParlympicsGB five-a-side football team, who passed the torch to Ms Maughan, who won gold in archery at the 1960 Rome Paralympics.She lit a tiny flame on the ground, igniting more than 200 copper petals. Long stems then rose towards each other to form a cauldron, signifying unity.‘Big bang’ The ParalympicsGB athletes earlier entered the stadium to David Bowie’s Heroes, led by Peter Norfolk, the two-time Paralympic wheelchair tennis champion, who carried the union jack. He later described it as a “wow moment”.In one heart-stopping moment during the show, six Paralympians and former competitors – including Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson – were flown into the stadium in golden wheelchairs.Disabled ex-serviceman David Rawlins flew a twin-engined Tecnam P2006 light aircraft over the stadium to kick off the proceedings.A sphere ignited the “big bang” – something which Prof Hawking, a world-renowned physicist who has motor neurone disease, has written about extensively – to start the show and fireworks lit up the stadium.Professor Hawking and actor Sir Ian McKellen played prominent roles in the ceremony, which also featured a host of deaf and disabled artists, local children and performers newly-trained in circus skills. Some 3,000 volunteers took part in the event, which organisers entitled Enlightenment and said was “profoundly about science and humanity”.Throughout the ceremony, Prof Hawking acted as a guide to Miranda – a character from William Shakespeare’s play The Tempest, who was central to the show – while actor Sir Ian played Prospero, another character from the play.Inspired by uncertain British weather, umbrellas were also a big theme in the ceremony, which was described as “both spectacular and deeply human” by organisers.The Queen was welcomed by Sir Philip Craven, President of the International Paralympic Committee, before the union jack was carried in by representatives of the armed forces.It is the first time the monarch has officiated at the openings of both the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Teams from all 164 countries paraded into the stadium to music mixed and played by three London-based DJs.The Paralympic torch began its journey in Stoke Mandeville, Buckinghamshire, the spiritual home of the Paralympic Games, on Tuesday night.It was carried by 580 torchbearers in total, and after being carried past some of London’s most famous landmarks, was used to light a scaled-down version of the Olympic cauldron.The torch had earlier been delayed but Games organisers Locog confirmed the flame arrived at the stadium in time to light the cauldron.UK Sport and the British Paralympic Association have set a minimum target of 103 medals this time from at least 12 sports, including swimming, athletics and rowing and hopes are high that ParalympicsGB will emulate the success of Team GB. Britain finished second in the medals table at the 2008 Games in Beijing, winning 42 golds, 29 silvers and 31 bronzes. China were top with 211 medals, of which 89 were gold.More than 2.4 million tickets for events have already been sold, including half a million to overseas visitors.In a statement released before she opened the Games, the Queen said: “It is with tremendous pride that the people of London and the United Kingdom welcome the world to the London 2012 Paralympic Games.“We look forward to celebrating the uplifting spirit which distinguishes the Paralympic Games from other events, drawing on Britain’s unique sporting heritage.”last_img read more

VAR confusion could blight World Cup – Southgate

first_imgSouthgate added that he is against the use of technology, as in England’s Premier League, despite the huge financial considerations wrong decisions can affect.“I prefer referee’s decision is final. It’s sport and we shouldn’t be talking abut how much money it’s cost or lost.” England were on course to back up their 1-0 win over the Netherlands on Friday and draws against World Cup favourites Germany and Brazil back in November thanks to Jamie Vardy’s 26th-minute opener.“Generally over the two games I’m really pleased,” added Southgate.“In the last four games we’ve played four of the biggest countries in the world, at different levels of progression, and been competitive in every one.”Insigne’s equaliser was the first goal England have conceded in six games.However, the hosts could have been punished far earlier for a lackadaisical start but for some poor finishing from Ciro Immobile. The Lazio striker has scored 34 goals this season, but twice failed to get his shot away in time after pouncing on a pair of errors by John Stones inside the first three minutes.Immobile’s best chance came 10 minutes later when he met Antonio Candreva’s enticing cross unmarked at the back post, but again failed to find the target as his header drifted over.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2center_img London, United Kingdom | AFP | England manager Gareth Southgate believes a lack of clarity over the video assistant referee (VAR) system could blight the 2018 World Cup.Southgate’s side were denied another impressive World Cup warm-up friendly result as Lorenzo Insigne’s penalty three minutes from time salvaged a 1-1 draw for Italy at Wembley on Tuesday.However, the visitors were only awarded a spot-kick after German referee Deniz Aytekin overturned his initial decision not to give a penalty when substitute Federico Chiesa tumbled under the challenge of James Tarkowski using VAR.“I’m glad it’s not the World Cup just yet,” said Southgate. “I think the ruling is ‘clear and obvious’ and it’s not. It’s one you can debate all day.”last_img read more

EGP welcomes £13m award from Sport England

first_img The England Golf Partnership (EGP) has today welcomed a £13 million grant from Sport England to continue to develop the sport over the four years from 2013-17. The grant is an increase on the £12.5 million core funding award for the current period and will support programmes to encourage more people to start and stay in golf and to nurture talented players. Roger Moreland, the EGP’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are very pleased with this level of financial support from Sport England and look forward to working with them to maximise their investment and to build on our successes of the past four years.” The grant is part an investment of almost half a billion pounds in grassroots sport, announced today by Sport England. It is intended to keep the inspiration of London 2012 alive and help fulfil Lord Coe’s pledge that the Games would get more people playing sport, a feat that no other host nation has ever managed to achieve. Sport England’s Director of Sport, Phil Smith commented on the grant for golf: “This investment reflects the progress the EGP has made in getting more people playing golf and developing talent within the sport. “Whilst there are challenges in keeping people playing golf in the current economic climate, we are confident that the EGP will continue to demonstrate leadership and innovation within the sport to ensure the number of people playing grows.” The 2013-17 Whole Sport Plan for golf, which will be rolled out from April, includes plans to encourage more people with a disability to take up golf and focuses on providing opportunities for people older than 26 to take up the game and play more often. In addition, the plan contains proposals for increasing the number of young people aged 14-25 playing the game. Roger Moreland added: “There are many challenges in golf, not least those of the weather and of the economic climate, but we are excited about the prospects for the coming four years, which will include the return of golf to the Olympic movement. “This award is a vote of confidence in our achievements to date and we will continue to work to make golf welcoming, accessible and a sport that offers fun and value to those who want to play.” The current four-year plan has shaped a successful period for golf development, during which a network of County Golf Partnerships became established and created a significant increase in golf participation. Their activities, to direct new and returning golfers to structured PGA coaching and playing opportunities, are enhanced by working with pro-active, affordable and accessible golf centres and by a better understanding of the requirements of golfers and would-be players. In the last year a pilot marketing campaign, Get into Golf, has promoted activity with one clear message. Since the current plan began in April 2009, over 154,000 people have tried golf at taster and coaching sessions, of whom more than 85,000 were aged over 16. To date, 4200 new memberships have been reported as being created as a direct result of their activity. These numbers have accelerated as the CGPs have become more customer-focussed. The latest CGP Impact Report shows that in the year to the end of September 2012, over 70,000 people tried golf – almost double the number in the in 2011. In the same period the number of adults playing golf regularly as a result of being involved in CGP activity increased by eight per cent. Meanwhile, England Golf’s 2012 golf club membership questionnaire has revealed that, although golf club membership dropped overall, 25 per cent of clubs have experienced an increase in membership in the last two years. These clubs are being examined in detail to establish how they are achieving success. The EGP brings together the amateur governing body, England Golf, and the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) to grow the game with the support of the Golf Foundation and Sport England. 17 Dec 2012 EGP welcomes £13m award from Sport England last_img read more
