first_imgWinner WC RoweFalmouth, CornwallW C Rowe has two bakeries and 17 retails outlets in Devon and Cornwall and serves the major multiples with breads, cakes, confectionery and savouries. It is one of the largest employers in the area, with 450 staff, and turns over £20 million per annum.The judges were impressed by the company’s “clear passion for delivering great-tasting products”, and its great service to customers.When Sainsbury’s looked for solutions to boost its flagging scone sales, W C Rowe produced three premium varieties – including Cornish Clotted Cream and Davidstow Cheddar – all featuring locally-sourced ingredients. This commitment to regional sourcing, as well as to traditional baking methods, was also praised.The company’s managing director Alan Pearce believes the success of the range lies mainly in the strong working relationship with Sainsbury’s.Finalist Genesis BreadsMagherafelt, Co LondonderryFamous for its craft morning goods, such as pancakes, potato and soda breads, Genesis is the 10-year-old brand of 40-year-old McErlain Bakery. It produces primarily for multiples in Northern Ireland, although 20% of sales now come from the south. Sales and marketing manager Liesa Johnston acknowledges that Sainsbury’s has played a big part in helping the company gain a foothold on the mainland.When Sainsbury’s asked for help with its declining scone sales, Genesis applied its “young, funky and quirky” style to create first Double Butter Succulent Sultana and then Yoghurt & Cranberry scones, as well as Big Pancakes.Johnston says Genesis’ strong working partnership with Sainsbury’s meant the bakery was able to create a perfectly-targeted product for them.Finalist Proper CornishFood CompanyBodmin, CornwallProper Cornish produces frozen and chilled pasties, slices and sausage rolls for national foodservice clients such as Delice de France, Compass and Country Choice. It boasts an annual turnover of around £10 million.The 30-year-old company sources from local suppliers. “We’re proud of our provenance,” says marketing manager Mark Muncey. “Our products are truly Proper Cornish.”Muncey also says the firm is proud of its superior service and strong client relationships, citing a joint promotion with client Presto. “Research showed the shops required greater product diversity, so we ran a competition to devise a new flavour. It was judged by a Michelin-starred chef and the winning entry was an amalgamation of two iconic dishes – a fish & chip pasty!”The results attracted publicity from as far afield as Australia and New Zealand.last_img read more

first_imgThe Disco Biscuits just wrapped up three great nights of music at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, treating fans to a jamtronica-soaked New Year’s Eve celebration. The band webcasted each of the shows on YouTube for free, but has been steadily releasing the sets one by one for the fans.So far, just the two sets from opening night have been released. Not to worry, because the band played incredible well for the first night of the run. They opened up the run with their fan favorite tune “Above the Waves” which segued into “Rainbow Song,” before the group revealed “Morph Dusseldorf” into the holiday special, “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.” From there, they went into “Minions” before closing out the first set with a return to “Morph Dusseldorf.”Set two featured more of the great Disco Biscuit grooves, starting with “Uber Glue” and including a cover of Frank Zappa‘s “Pygmy Twylyte.” That segued into “Orch Theme,” which in turn went into “Spraypaint Victory” and a return to “Above The Waves.” They closed out the set with “Mr. Don,” and encored with a great rendition of the song “Rock Candy.”Fortunately, full videos of both sets can be streamed below! Check them out here, and the setlist below.Setlist: The Disco Biscuits | The Tabernacle | Atlanta, GA | 12/29/16Set I: Above the Waves-> Rainbow Song, Morph Dusseldorf-> Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy-> Minions-> Morph DusseldorfSet II: Uber Glue, Pygmy Twylyte-> Orch Theme-> Spraypaint Victory-> Above the Waves, Mr. DonEncore: Rock Candylast_img read more


first_imgThough Beverly Hills offers a stark contrast to the types of venues typically associated with the Grateful Dead, a car parked with the license plate “RYUKND” was a certain indicator that we were right at home. The Saban Theatre was the perfect venue for Dark Star Orchestra‘s return to Los Angeles. Its towering ceiling, ornate walls, great views from every seat, and excellent sound set the tone for what would be a spectacular night.As the band prepared to play, fans traded suppositions before the stage as to what era Dark Star would honor. “Late ’60s,” said one. “1973, another.” No one really had a clue, but it didn’t matter. Guessing made for a great game.Dark Star opened with “Iko Iko,” which seemed like a good way to ease in while slowly getting the crowd bouncing. Next came “Walkin’ Blues.” A minimalist little tune that built anticipation for the next song, the effervescent “Candyman.” After a downbeat “Queen Jane Approximately,” the band set out on a massive tear. The crowd reacted enthusiastically to the first few notes of “Althea,” and the band did not disappoint. DSO continued things with a solid “Blow Away,” which paved the way for the best run of the night. “Cassidy” and “Deal,” with guitarist Jeff Mattson absolutely shredding the Deal solo to leave everyone grasping for air at the intermission.The band wasted no time when they came back after a short set break. “China Cat Sunflower” got things going, and “Crazy Fingers” was handled with complete confidence. “I Know You Rider” > “Playing in the Band” was a highlight back in 1988, and it lived up to its reputation this evening. The band was rolling at 110%, hitting all the right notes and delivering sonic crowd-pleasing goodness. “Drums and Space” were a congruous and worthy experience. “The Wheel” gave way to a fun “Gimme’ Some Lovin’,” an homage to the Spencer Davis Group. “Believe it or Not,” a late Hunter-Garcia tune, seemed as new to this crowd in 2017 as it did when it first came out. Perhaps this is because the band only performed it about a half dozen times. Dark Star concluded the second set with a “Sugar Magnolia.” Not a single person in the theater could be seen sitting by the end of this ditty. It got the white glove treatment. Finally, Dark Star capped with a solemn “Black Muddy River.”Highlights of the night were Deal, Rider, and Playin’.The Summer of 1988 is often hailed as one of the best touring periods in the late Grateful Dead era. Dark Star Orchestra paid homage to this show — the first of a three day run at Laguna Seca on July 29, 1988 — by not only playing tightly, but by having fun. The band looked like it was thoroughly enjoying itself. Keyboardist Rob Barraco, in particular, looked like he was having the time of his life. When Dark Star plays with this level of excitement, everyone wins!Check out the full setlist and a gallery below, courtesy of Brandon Weil, as well as full video highlights from blisstanger on YouTube.Setlist: Dark Star Orchestra | Saban Theatre | Los Angeles, CA | 2/24/17 (Originally 7/29/88)Set 1: Iko Iko, Walkin’ Blues, Candyman, Queen Jane Approximately, Althea, Blow Away, Cassidy > DealSet 2: China Cat Sunflower > Crazy Fingers > I Know You Rider > Playin’ In The Band > Drums > Space > The Wheel > Gimme Some Lovin’ > Believe It Or Not > Sugar MagnoliaEncore: Black Muddy River Load remaining imageslast_img read more


first_imgGAZETTE: What has been previously tried to address the distracted-driving problem?WINSTEN: Government agencies, corporations, nonprofits, and celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres have mounted campaigns to curb distracted driving. Digital-device manufacturers have promoted the use of do-not-disturb-while-driving apps on smartphones. Auto manufacturers have developed advanced monitoring and response systems to assist drivers in avoiding crashes. And, insurance carriers and telematics companies have joined forces to create financial incentives for safe driving, monitor driver performance, and to provide feedback to drivers.The problem is that, notwithstanding these efforts, distracted-driving behavior has remained largely resistant to change. It has emerged as a global problem, drawing the attention of policymakers on every continent. No one has figured out the solution yet.GAZETTE: Why has this proven so hard to tackle?WINSTEN: In today’s hyperconnected culture, there’s tremendous psychological resistance to putting down the phone and disengaging from one’s social and business worlds when one steps into the car. Audible notifications of incoming calls, text messages, and emails exert a powerful pull. Very few drivers — about 5 percent — take the step of silencing those notifications while driving, despite the ready availability of “do not disturb” technology for that purpose.Another part of the challenge is that many drivers have highly inflated beliefs about their own skills at multitasking. And each time they drive while distracted and get away with it, their confidence only grows. Videos featuring dramatic slow-motion recreations of serious crashes caused by distracted drivers garner millions of views, but they don’t change behavior because many viewers think, “That’s not me. I can handle it. That won’t happen to me.”And lastly, in contrast to drunken driving, the dominant social norm around distracted driving remains largely permissive. There’s no stigma, no sense of shame associated with the behavior. Most people say they disapprove of driving while distracted, but they continue to do so and readily admit it. The rapid proliferation of high-tech distractions in the vehicle — particularly in-car entertainment systems controlled by touch screens — threatens to further exacerbate the problem.Clearly there’s a need for new approaches. Progress will come from a combination of tougher laws, stricter enforcement, technological innovation, community mobilization, and public campaigns.Our own interest is in the next generation of public campaigns. We analyzed the extensive body of opinion research that’s available on this issue and were intrigued by one finding in particular: Large majorities consistently express a palpable fear for their own personal safety due to the actions of “other” drivers, even as they downplay the risks from their own multitasking. They say they’re frightened by the multitude of distracted drivers who drift in and out of their lanes.So, we want to promote a message that resonates with drivers’ preexisting fear: Vigilantly scan the road to detect and rapidly respond to emerging threats. In other words, be an attentive driver.GAZETTE: So, this has a twofold effect, heightening awareness that other drivers could be staring at their screens instead of the road, and at the same time making the point that you don’t want to be the person whom other drivers are on the lookout for. WINSTEN: Yes, that’s correct. The message will be executed in a way that adds a dimension of self-consciousness about one’s own driving. At a granular level, Project LookOut, as we call it, will promote active scanning of the road environment, especially at busy intersections and in other high-risk zones — blind curves, work sites, school crossings, police road stops. The campaign will emphasize that attentive driving involves considerably more than keeping eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. Especially in high-risk zones, it requires vigilant attention — systematically scanning left, right, and in rear- and side-view mirrors — to detect, evaluate, and rapidly respond to threats — a level of attention that cannot be achieved while multitasking.To help promote a shift in social norms, Project LookOut also will encourage passengers — including children — to speak up when their driver becomes inattentive. The campaign will create an animated mascot to model interpersonal interventions by passengers. And, we will seek to popularize language for passengers to use when speaking up. We’re working with a Hollywood animated film studio and a leading advertising/marketing agency to develop the character and the overall campaign.GAZETTE: So, active scanning helps you to see not just other drivers who may be erratic because of a distraction, but also bikers and pedestrians?WINSTEN: Yes. There needs to be a careful balancing of the message: It’s obviously not solely about protecting yourself and your companions; it’s also about not causing harm to other road users whose lives have momentarily intersected with yours.GAZETTE: Is there a solid research basis for your emphasis on active scanning?WINSTEN: Yes, the campaign’s emphasis on vigilant scanning is based in part on findings from a research workshop that we convened in collaboration with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Toyota. The workshop brought together some 30 researchers to review knowledge gained from aviation research on strategies to counter inattention in the cockpit, and to consider potential applications of that research to the distracted driving problem.A key behavioral factor in aviation safety is the maintenance of “situational awareness” (SA), which depends on three steps: surveillance of the surrounding environment through active scanning; identifying and rapidly assessing a potential risk; and projecting ahead in time to anticipate how the situation may evolve. The workshop concluded that SA also “offers high potential payoffs for improving road safety and saving lives.”Supporting the workshop’s conclusion, NHTSA’s National Motor Vehicle Crash Causation Survey, conducted at crash scenes, identified “inadequate surveillance” as the “critical reason” for 44 percent of injury-involved crashes occurring at intersections, and 22 percent of injury-involved crashes overall.GAZETTE: Will Project LookOut be solely a media initiative?WINSTEN: No, we also will assist local community groups in tackling the issue, with a big emphasis on preventing harm to pedestrians and cyclists. The materials we develop will be made available to grassroots organizations for local branding.GAZETTE: So, this is going to be a resource for groups who are working on this issue and think it’s important already. Are you also going to be involving YouTube and Facebook and the like? WINSTEN: Yes, we’ll be working through both traditional media channels and social media channels aggressively. The Hollywood creative community will play a significant role in this, as they did with our designated-driver campaign.GAZETTE: Who’s going to be working on this?WINSTEN: It’s an initiative of Harvard Chan’s Center for Health Communication. We will be implementing it in stages, reaching out to researchers and others within the School and around the University to collaborate.GAZETTE: Has a launch date been set?WINSTEN: We’re expecting to launch the initial phase in early fall. Cyclists and pedestrians are dying in increasing numbers on U.S. roads, according to recent U.S. government estimates, while overall traffic fatalities, despite a slight drop in 2018, remain up 12 percent since 2014.The figures, from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, show a 1 percent drop in overall traffic deaths last year, but a 10 percent increase in traffic-related cyclist deaths and a 4 percent rise in the number of pedestrians killed. The Harvard T.H. Chan School’s Center for Health Communication is planning to tackle a major cause: distracted driving.The center is joining forces with a Hollywood animation studio and a New York ad firm to develop a campaign aimed at raising awareness of the need for drivers to remain focused, a problem that has proved resistant to efforts by legislatures, federal and state agencies, insurance companies, carmakers, nonprofits, and others.On the eve of the July 4 holiday period, when an estimated 41 million Americans will be on the road, the Gazette spoke to Jay Winsten, the Frank Stanton Center Director and the School’s associate dean for communication. Winsten and his team spearheaded the U.S. Designated Driver Campaign, which helped sharply reduce drunken driving fatalities. They plan to use the same strategy they devised for that project on this one: create a social norm that stigmatizes the behavior.Q&AJay WinstenGAZETTE: Are things getting better or worse with distracted driving?WINSTEN: They’re getting worse.In the U.S., nearly 38,000 people lost their lives in traffic crashes last year, up 12 percent since 2014, and 4.5 million people were seriously injured. Distracted driving has been identified as a key factor in the recent rise.News reports are replete with stories of distracted drivers striking kids exiting school buses, pedestrians in crosswalks, cyclists sharing the road, police officers at road stops, and road crews in work zones. Nobody’s safe out there. GAZETTE: How does that compare to other kinds of deaths?WINSTEN: At a global level, road crashes are responsible for over 1.3 million fatalities each year — higher than for HIV/AIDS, malaria, or TB. In the U.S., traffic crashes are the leading cause of death among young adults.,GAZETTE: Are we talking specifically about distractions due to technology or are we talking about all kinds of distractions: kids in the back seat, people juggling a sandwich, a cup of coffee, and driving? WINSTEN: We’re talking about all sources of distraction, ranging from the use of digital devices to more traditional forms of distracted driving — reaching for a water bottle that you’ve dropped or turning toward a child in the back seat to handle a problem. Distracted driving is a longstanding problem. However, what’s brought it to the forefront of attention is the added dimension of injuries and fatalities resulting from the use of digital devices while driving. GAZETTE: Massachusetts has a new law pending that would ban the use of handheld devices while driving. Did you have a role in that and what do you think of those restrictions?WINSTEN: We were involved early on. We organized a briefing at the State House for members of the legislature, and I published an op-ed in The Boston Globe.Almost every state has enacted a law to ban texting while driving. But those laws have proven extremely difficult to enforce. That’s because, in most states, it’s still legal to enter GPS coordinates on a smart phone, or scroll through music selections, while driving. The prohibition is limited to texting and emailing. So, when drivers are pulled over, they frequently tell the officer, “No sir, I wasn’t texting and driving. I was entering GPS coordinates.” And it requires a warrant to check the driver’s phone.Nineteen states — and Massachusetts is about to follow suit — prohibit all use of handheld digital devices while driving. The Massachusetts Senate and House have passed different versions of that bill — they will have to be reconciled — and the governor has indicated that he intends to sign it.Banning the use of handheld devices makes it possible for police to effectively enforce distracted driving laws because, if you are holding the digital device, that’s a per se offense. It’s going to make a significant difference on the enforcement side, though it’s not a panacea. “Progress will come from a combination of tougher laws, stricter enforcement, technological innovation, community mobilization, and public campaigns.”last_img read more


first_imgAs students pack Notre Dame Stadium next fall, not only will they be cheering on the Irish in style, but they will also be doing so in a socially conscious fashion. For the first time ever, The Shirt Project is announcing the identity of their vendor: Alta Gracia Apparel. The company will further the tradition of The Shirt Project, promoting both Notre Dame’s tradition and socially conscious identity. Junior Andrew Alea, president of The Shirt Project, said Alta Gracia Apparel went beyond The Shirt’s usual tradition of supporting the Notre Dame community. “The Alta Gracia brand is a socially conscious brand. The shirts are manufactured in a town in the Dominican Republic called Alta Gracia,” he said. “They pay their workers a living wage, which is basically enough to feed, clothe and house their entire family.” Alea said proceeds from The Shirt would go back to students in various ways, ranging from covering medical costs to funding additional clubs and organizations. Revenues would also help pay for students who could not otherwise afford to participate in campus activities, according to the project’s website. “It’s an added message to The Shirt,” he said. “In addition to contributing back to the University, now we are contributing back to the world in a sense.” Alea said he thinks Notre Dame students will appreciate the social significance this year’s Shirt will have. “By supporting The Shirt, you’re not only supporting Notre Dame student body clubs and activities, but supporting a living wage in the Dominican Republic, which is actually a cool message to have,” he said. Alea said The Shirt Project has felt the need to explore socially conscious vendor options over the past few years. This year, the offers were competitive enough to move in such a direction, he said. “Over the past three years, the vendors who have come to present on campus have each been more pushing the socially conscious brands or ideas,” Alea said. “It’s out there, and we felt the time was right to do something about it.” As this year’s vendor inspires a message of social responsibility, Alea said the unveiling of The Shirt is being planned accordingly. “We really want to incorporate the story and the added message to the marketing and unveiling of The Shirt,” he said. Though the vendor and the unveiling may be different this year, Alea said the traditional purpose of The Shirt to inspire Notre Dame fans remains the same. “The design will be based on tradition, it will not be a socially conscious design,” he said. “[There is] the same design process, the same ink process. The Shirt still fits the same. Everything is the same.” Senior Paul Baranay, vice president of The Shirt Project, said the selection of a vendor with strong social concerns ties compelled the committee to make the choice public, a change from previous years. “There has been a lot of discussion about the vendor, and the Committee got the sense the student body was very interested in finding out who the vendor was,” he said. “We think it was a good time to talk to the student body.” Baranay said that although the same vendor has not produced The Shirt every year, Knight’s Apparel, the parent company of Alta Gracia Apparel, has worked with Notre Dame in the past. He said this was crucial in the partnership, citing a level of familiarity behind the choice of a socially conscious vendor. “In some sense, we are getting the best of both worlds,” he said. The Shirt will be unveiled April 20.last_img read more
