Peters Bakery goes into administration

first_imgPeters Bakery, the north-east bakery chain and wholesaler, has gone into administration.The firm this afternoon appointed Mark Firmin and Howard Smith of accountancy giant KPMG as joint administrators.A number of redundancies are expected to be confirmed by the administrators and KPMG said it was now looking for a purchaser for the business.The firm was ranked at number 19 on BB75 – British Baker’s own list of the top 75 high street bakery retailers – and the decision to place the firm into administration was because of the “challenging retail environment”.The family business is headquartered on a freehold site on Durham’s Dragonville Industrial Estate, where it also has a 50,000sq ft factory. Its most recent accounts indicated the firm had a turnover of more than £12m, on the back of a network of 58 stores, contracts with leading supermarkets, a direct mobile sales operation and 403 employees.Mark Firmin, KPMG’s northern head of restructuring and joint administrator, told British Baker: “The challenging retail environment on the high street is exacerbated by rising commodity and energy prices squeezing margins in this sector. These factors, along with reduced volumes with its wholesale customers, has led to the failure of this 46-year-old family business.”For further details on the collapse of the company, see this week’s British Baker.last_img read more

Weekend Pick: Asheville Food & Wine Festival

first_imgAsheville is many things to many people. To outdoor enthusiasts, it’s a mecca of activity from rafting to biking and everything in between. To beer lovers, it’s a mecca of craft beer from Imperial IPAs to Lagers and everything in between. To food lovers, it’s a mecca of locally sourced, organic flavors from vegans soup to meat lovers pizza. It’s little wonder that all these things go hand in hand. Those who tend to love the outdoors, want to protect the outdoors, and spend most of their time outdoors, also love heady brews and local fare. This is no coincidence; the outdoors lifestyle we have cultivated in the 21st century encompasses all these traits. At least for most of us. This weekend, take that epic bike ride, that long run, that kayaking trip, then head over to the U.S. Cellular Center for the Asheville Wine & Food Festival.The name of this festival is a slight misnomer. Yes, there will be awesome food, and awesome wine from around North Carolina and the greater Asheville area, but there will also be ample amounts of local beer, and even locally distilled spirits, on hand for those who don’t enjoy the vino – who are these people? The main event is the Grand Tasting on Saturday where they will be popping bottles and cookin’ up grub from 1pm to 5pm. We could go on, but the events press release says it all:“Even for locals, it’s still almost impossible to sample every delicious flavor the region has to offer, but The Grand Tasting comes pretty close. On Saturday, August 24, the U.S. Cellular Center will house the largest gathering of its kind in downtown Asheville. This year, nearly 125 local and international wine distributors and makers, a bevy of local Beer City and area brewers, regional distillers, restaurateurs and chefs, farmers, and artisan food producers will line the concourse and ground floor of the arena. Meet farmers, chefs, cookbook authors, and artisan makers, as well as select nonprofits and regional crafters. Cooking demonstrations will take place throughout the day, as well as the Amateur Winemaker Competition. And you won’t want to miss the WNC Chefs Challenge finale, when the Best Chef in WNC will be revealed.”So let your passions combine at the Asheville Wine & Food Festival, just be sure to get your ride in beforehand. No one likes a tipsy, food coma-y exercise partner.View Larger Maplast_img read more

Securing the Pacific through International Cooperation

first_imgBy Dialogo July 03, 2013 Intelligence Sharing Flying in a Colombian Pacific Naval Force helicopter over the thickly vegetated Bay of Málaga makes it clear why drug traffickers use this area as a transit point. This bay, near the midpoint between Colombia’s southern and northern borders, is a labyrinth of islands, inlets and shallow groves ideal for concealing fast boats or semisubmersibles. Southern Colombia also provides the most fertile and remote areas for growing coca and processing it in well-camouflaged jungle laboratories. Waterways like this along 870 miles of Pacific coastline mark the beginning of the sea journey of illegal drug shipments bound for Central America, Mexico and, eventually, the United States. Garuz participated in the meeting of the IV South American Defense Conference because, as he said, Panama maintains two positions straddling South America and Central America. He added that Panama is establishing a center of information and intelligence oriented specifically towards narcoterrorism so that information about these transregional threats can be shared with all the countries affected. Fighting Narcoterrorists Colonel Gonzalo Aladino, commander of the 2nd Infantry Brigade of the Colombian Marines, assessed the estuaries near the port city of Buenaventura on a recent patrol aboard a flat-bottomed Marine patrol boat. “Due to the geographic configuration, due to the environment, it is in a zone that is ideal for the production of coca. Unfortunately, this zone, so rich in mineral resources and biodiversity, has become a critical zone for terrorist organizations to conduct narcotrafficking,” he said. Col. Aladino said his Marines in the area have found everything from semisubmersibles and go-fast boats to workshops for the production of the vessels and cocaine processing laboratories. In addition to these, the two countries share information that’s crucial in capturing traffickers and their illicit cargoes. “There are many lines of interaction,” the commander of the Colombian Navy, Admiral Roberto Garcia, told Diálogo. “One of the most important is intelligence. Today, with Colombian intelligence, Panama has executed successful operations whereby the Colombian Navy receives certificates from the government of Panama crediting the results to Colombian intelligence and the close communications.” “We had very clear information that a go-fast boat was preparing to leave our waters near the border, at Punta Ardita,” he said. Colombian patrol boats and planes were tracking the location of the suspected trafficker and coordinating with Panamanian and U.S. vessels waiting off Panamanian shores. The coordination between the three countries, as is often the case, was conducted through the Joint Interagency Task Force-South (JIATF-S) in Key West, a command and control center that monitors radar and shares information across the region. “So, the result of this operation was that the go-fast left our waters and the U.S. boat picked it up and followed it with a [Panamanian aeronaval] SENAN boat, and the seizure was tangible. In this case, 468 kilograms of marijuana, which was very positive.” In Panama, the Public Security Force has been responsible for territorial defense since 1990, when the armed forces were abolished by popular referendum. In recent years, Panama has invested tens of millions of dollars in new air and sea radar, maritime stations and assets, including helicopters and patrol boats to help its Public Security Force combat what it deems narcoterrorism. Speaking to Diálogo at a July 2012 conference in Bogotá, Panamanian Vice Minister of Public Security Alejandro Garuz said combating narcoterrorism is the country’s top security priority. “Now, as the Public Security Force, as the Ministry of Public Security, we take on the challenge of confronting narcotrafficking. Unfortunately, due to its geographic position, Panama is the first country in the region that feels the impact from three South American producer countries,” he said. “[Narcotraffickers] used our maritime, air and land areas to transit drugs to northern markets. Evidently, part of these drugs remain in our country and were affecting our population.” Colombian FNP Coast Guard Captain Carlos Delgado said intelligence cannot be underestimated when it comes to stopping semisubmersibles, the seagoing vessels designed by drug traffickers to evade detection while transporting large quantities of narcotics to distant shores. The low-profile fiberglass and wood vessels are nearly undetectable once in high seas. In addition, the light fuel consumption needed to maintain a speed of eight to 10 knots means the heat they produce quickly dissipates in the surrounding water, foiling detection via thermal imaging systems. To demonstrate the degree and fluidity of maritime coordination, Captain Joseph Thowinson of the Colombian Pacific Naval Force (FNP) recounted to Diálogo an interdiction that took place on February 19, 2013. In 2013, intelligence sharing between Colombia and Ecuador led to a seizure of the first fully submersible vessel in an estuary along the shared border. While the vessel was grabbed before its maiden voyage, it provided a glimpse at the level of technology achieved by traffickers. Thanks to bilateral agreements between Colombia and Panama, the two countries frequently exchange information. Also, the Colombian Navy and Coast Guard train Panamanian forces, both in Colombia and with a mobile training unit that makes visits to Panama. Colombia is also a regular participant in Panama’s most important regional training exercise, Panamax, which draws together countries from the Americas and Europe to practice securing the Panama Canal. Even with the challenges of finding small targets in the vast blue Pacific Ocean and thickly vegetated and sparsely populated mangroves, Colombia seized 32 tons of cocaine and captured 112 narcotraffickers in 2012. Colombia attributes part of this success to close maritime cooperation and intelligence sharing with its neighbors, especially its northern neighbor, Panama. By using technology, joint training and coordinated efforts, the Panamanian Public Security Force and Colombian Military are vastly reducing illegal shipments of drugs via the Pacific smuggling routes and choking off a key source of funding for guerrilla and criminal organizations. Maritime cooperation between Panama and Colombia is active and strong, say Colombian authorities from the Bahia Málaga Naval Base. “They maintain constant communication and through all of the means and technology that we have for intelligence, there is permanent interaction precisely to detect, prevent and cut passage of those aligned with narcotrafficking,” said Colombian Marine Col. Aladino. Asked what threat remains in the combined fight against drug traffickers, Col. Aladino underscored the importance of confidence building between partner nations. “The principal threat that can affect this is lack of confidence. This confidence is very strong. With the confidence between these countries, between our armed forces to unite and cooperate with information and exchange of information in real time, we can confront problems more efficiently.”last_img read more

A new era of payments and security

first_imgToday’s tech-savvy consumers are quickly adapting to digital devices, turning them into powerful payment vehicles. At the same time, the safety and security of these transactions is paramount.The EMV standard serves as the backbone for future payment technologies by enabling safer, smarter and more secure transactions across cards, contactless, mobile and remote payment channels. For 15 years, Mastercard has played a leading role in the creation, management and continued development of the EMV standard. We offer a unique set of EMV solutions to help issuers and merchants implement new payment solutions quickly.What is the EMV standard?EMV is a standard for globally interoperable, secure payments. The key element of EMV involves including dynamic digital data in every transaction. This makes these types of transactions extremely secure and reduces the risk of fraud.When a consumer uses an EMV-enabled device to pay at an EMV terminal, it can be instantly identified as an authentic, approved payment belonging to that consumer through dynamic authentication. When used with a PIN (Personal Identification Number), the chip verifies that the consumer is indeed holding his or her own device.How does EMV reduce fraud?In the digital world, payment transactions are getting smarter. And at the heart of these smarter transactions is dynamic authentication, which incorporates unique information in each transaction making it virtually impossible to replicate.The EMV standard has already been adopted by more than 80 countries where it has significantly reduced counterfeit card fraud, saving hundreds of millions of dollars. Our goal is to help reduce fraud in the United States too. 158SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

I just pretty much rode him out from there. He’s a really good horse. I thank Mr. Ross and Brendan Walsh for the opportunity. They have a niche for the distance races. I am just so pleased that Mr. Ross has stuck with me for the past 10 years of my career.  I was at Santa Anita one other time about seven years ago, but I never made it to the horse shoe. I have two more races to ride tomorrow. BRENDAN WALSH, SCUBA, WINNER: “I think the pace was favorable. The horse was keen enough to go on and get on with it and they left him alone to an extent. It worked out great. He’s just a great horse. He’s won three times in a row in three states in the best of company. He’s just remarkable.” NOTES: Walsh is 42, from Cork, Ireland, and this is his fifth year training.

The Clarets will be boosted by the news that defenders James Tarkowski and Stephen Ward are both back in contention having trained this week and are expected to feature.As Burnely are struggling for form of late having not won in any of their past nine matches in all competitions, business seems to have been resumed at City as the Citizens have won four in four ever since they went down 3-4 at Anfield at the start of the year.Burnely have registered only one win against City in 43 years and having lost all of their past four meetings with the Citizens, Sean Dych’s men will be backing on the joint fourth best defence in the league to try and shut out Pep Guardiol’s side.AFC Bournemouth vs Stock CityVitality StadiumSat @06:00pmReferee: Paul Tierney.Ryad Mahrez may not feature for the second match running for Leicester after trying to force a move away from the King Power on transfer deadline day.

A run of three wins in their last five games has seen the Swans move out of the relegation zone for the first time in over four months and the team will surely be confident of getting a result against Leicester on Saturday.This fixture has not seen a draw in any of the last 12 meetings with Leicester winning eight times in the process including five of the last six.Swansea has never won at Leicester in history and re-writing the past may be too much to ask but a point may be in the Swans reach provided their recent form.Jose Mourinho may find his side 18 points behind leaders Man City by kick-off when they host Huddersfield Town.

Latest: Liverpool 1 Chelsea 1

first_imgGary Cahill hauled the visitors level at Anfield after Emre Can’s effort had deflected in off the Chelsea defender to give Liverpool an early lead.Can tried his luck from long range and the German’s shot looped into the net after striking Cahill’s shoulder, giving wrong-footed keeper Thibaut Courtois no chance.Can had gone close with another deflected shot in the opening minute, when the ball flashed just wide after hitting John Terry.Chelsea responded strongly to going behind and equalised with the help of goal-line technology – ironically in front of the Kop, where Luis Garcia’s infamous 2005 Champions League semi-final goal against them was allowed to stand after being adjudged to have crossed the line.Cesc Fabregas’ corner was flicked on by Diego Costa and after Simon Mignolet superbly saved Terry’s header, Cahill did enough to score despite the keeper’s best efforts on the line.Cahill was soon at the centre of the action again, blocking Raheem Sterling’s shot with his shoulder as the home fans appealed in vain for a penalty.Ramires was included the Chelsea side, while Liverpool recalled Steven Gerrard, Sterling, Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren and Mario Balotelli to their starting line-up.Back after recovering from a recent injury, Ramires returned along with Cesar Azpilicueta, who is available again after a suspension.Willian and Filipe Luis are on the Blues bench, as are Didier Drogba and the fit-again Loic Remy.
