BATH, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 20: Peter Short of Bath during the Guinness Premiership match between Bath and Worcester at the Recreation Ground on February 20, 2010 in Bath, England. (Photo by Jed Leicester/Getty Images) “We’ve done a full screening and we know what the concerns are, but if you checked any forward at this time of year they would all have bits and pieces wrong with them. Tom Hayes and James Hanks were bashed about last season but it didn’t stop them playing. I’m very confident Peter is the sort of person who knows how to manage himself, how to look after himself after training and after matches to keep himself in the best possible condition.”With Short ticking numerous boxes on Baxter’s player checklist, the player himself is relishing the opportunity of running out for the Chiefs in the top flight.He said: “Obviously I’ve had some really good few years at Bath, but things are starting to change up there and I’m now looking forward to a new challenge with Exeter. The set-up is clearly fantastic and you can see the club is built on solid foundations. Talking to Rob as well, he’s an impressive guy and I liked what he had to say about the future direction of the club. You can see the club are wanting to build on last season and I want to be part of that as well.“Exeter had a great season last year and full credit to them for that. You can see they are a tight group of players, they’re well-conditioned, and they know what they are doing and they want to get better. As I said, it’s going to be a new and fresh challenge for me, but it’s one that I am relishing.”Certainly Short was impressed by the vision of the future portrayed by Baxter, a man the newcomer is keen to work with over the coming season.He added: “I like the manner of the man. He clearly knows what he is talking about and has a good outlook on the game. I spoke to a few other guys about him and they said he was a straight shooter and someone who likes you to work hard and do your bit for the team. He’s been there and done it in the past and watching Exeter from afar this year, you can see he has a vision on how they want to play and how they want to develop. As a front five forward I like the ideas he has, so I’m looking forward to working with him.”With the Chiefs set for only their second ever season in the Premiership, Short is well aware that Exeter will not catch their league rivals out so easily – especially after producing such an impressive first year of action. “Of course the new season is going to be tough,” said Short, who has previously played for Moseley, Leicester Tigers and Narbonne. “People will know a lot more about Exeter this year, but equally Exeter will know more about the opposition so it kind of works two-way in that respect. I think a lot of people looked at Exeter at the start of last season as being the league’s potential whipping boys, but as we saw they proved a lot of people wrong and I doubt people will be thinking like that again this year.”NAME: Peter ShortDOB: 20/6/79BIRTHPLACE: LiverpoolHEIGHT: 6’5 (1.96m)WEIGHT: 19st 6lbs (124kg)PREVIOUS CLUBS: Moseley, Leicester Tigers, Narbonne, BathREP HONS: England Saxons, Under-21s, Students, Barbarians Peter Short heading to ExeterExeter Chiefs have added their eighth new signing of the summer with the capture of second row Peter Short from Aviva Premiership counterparts Bath Rugby.The 31-year-old forward has agreed a one-year deal with the Chiefs and arrives in Devon having spent the past six seasons at the Recreation Ground, where he amassed 145 appearances for the club, scoring 20 points in total. Short admits that whilst he has enjoyed his lengthy tenure at Bath, the time was now right for him to take on and tackle a new challenge within the game.Initially it appeared that challenge may have taken him across the English Channel to Paris, where he was due to sign for Top 14 outfit Stade Francais. However, recent events at the French club saw that move break down and the Chiefs moved swiftly to secure his services for the 2011/12 campaign.And Exeter head coach Rob Baxter is delighted to have got the Liverpool-born forward on board for the new season. He said: “We had a look at him before he decided to go to Stade Francais. We met him a while ago but it looked like that had gone cold for us. With developments at Stade things changed and when he became available again we met him again and had another chat and watched more games because he came back fit towards the end of the season, including playing against us.”His 72 minute display against the Chiefs was one of just six appearances Short made last season for Bath. A torn bicep meant he was forced to sit out a section of the season, but he did return in the latter weeks and Baxter was suitably impressed by what he saw from the 6ft 5in, 19-stone lock.“He didn’t play much last season, but we feel he can add something to the squad,” added Baxter, who has also added fellow lock Aly Muldowney from Glasgow Warriors this summer. “He’s the type of player I was looking to bring in to the front five. He’s a bit bigger and sometimes that element of bulk is what you need in certain games and at certain times of the year.“He’s also a good line-out forward and good at restarts, which sometimes you don’t see as the job of the bigger second rows. He’s capable of playing in the back row and that’s a good fit for us because we ask a lot of our front five, we expect them to work very hard and get through a lot of work. He’s a bit older and the benefit of that is that he brings a lot of experience to a younger pack. He ticks a lot of boxes for us so it was an easy decision to go for him once he became available again.”Although last season was one which Short himself was happy to write off, Baxter insists he has no major concerns over the long-term fitness of his newest addition.“In many ways he’s in great shape physically,” he said. “He’s about 120kg but only about eight per cent body fat – he is in great shape. He has a bicep injury last season but that can happen to any forward over the course of their career – we’ve had several players do that at the club and they’ve all come back fine. He’s also had an on-going knee injury throughout his career but it hasn’t stopped him playing. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS read more

Giving Tuesday UK has introduced a fundraising initiative for this year’s event in support of the country’s charities.GivingTuesday 2020 takes place on 1 December, and new for this year in the UK it will include GiveBack2020, specifically designed to encourage support for charities.GiveBack2020 is an initiative from Giving Tuesday UK and its partners to help charities by encouraging people to give back to those that have supported them, their families and communities throughout the pandemic, and help them survive, whether through donations of time, money or other assistance. Tagged with: Giving Tuesday Giving Tuesday suggests that charities ask their supporters to get involved in GiveBack2020, explaining what they would like them to GiveBack depending on the need: such as donations, volunteers, support for a campaign, or professional support, and why.It has published a toolkit of resources to help, including ideas, social media assets and a template press release on its site.Last year in the UK, GivingTuesday saw £14.2m given in donations via Visa alone: the equivalent to almost £10,000 a minute. This year has already seen one GivingTuesday event with an extra day of global action, #GivingTuesdayNow, taking place on 5 May in response to Covid-19. This was designed to drive giving as well as action, and to support communities and non-profits around the world. 734 total views, 3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis 733 total views, 2 views today Giving Tuesday UK launches GiveBack2020 initiative to encourage support for charities AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Melanie May | 14 October 2020 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Facebook Twitter Previous articleKeeping Livestock Safe During Extreme Cold and FSA Employees Happy to be Back at Work on the HAT Wednesday Morning EditionNext articleBenton and Wayne County Farm Bureaus Talk Farm to Fork at AFBF Hoosier Ag Today SHARE SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 30, 2019 A Purdue University researcher is part of a project that is looking for ways to improve swine herd health and survivability to increase animal well-being and pork producers’ profits.Kara Stewart, a Purdue assistant professor of animal sciences, will focus primarily on neonatal piglet survival from birth until weaning. The project is being led by the Iowa Pork Industry Center at Iowa State University and also includes scientists from Kansas State University. The National Pork Board and the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) are providing nearly $2 million for the five-year study.“Leaders in the swine industry recognized that pig survivability was a multifactorial issue that would require teams of researchers from various disciplines to work together to research methods to improve livability in pigs,” Stewart said. Indiana Pork also has agreed to contribute money to these projects because they see the value in decreasing herd mortality rates and improving animal welfare in our industry.”It is estimated that 30 percent to 35 percent of pigs born die before reaching the market, creating significant economic losses for farmers. Those mortality rates have been increasing across all phases of production.“The members of the animal science and welfare committees of the National Pork Board recognize improving pig health, welfare and productivity are keys in extending pig survivability,” said Chris Hostetler, director of animal science for the National Pork Board. “While this project is slated to last five years, it is the vision of the committees that this effort will fundamentally shape the way pigs are raised to provide safe, wholesome pork far into the future.”Under the project, the causes of mortality on commercial swine farms will be studied by an interdisciplinary team of nutritionists, physiologists, veterinarians, well-being and behavior experts, geneticists, toxicologists, Extension specialists and economists. The goal is to fully understand the biological mechanisms that limit pig and sow survivability, how they interact and how they can be effectively improved.“We know that improving survivability will increase the efficiency and environmental sustainability of the whole industry, but solutions need to be economically feasible,” said Tim Kurt, FFAR’s scientific program director.“Increasing sow and piglet survivability is one of the most intractable issues facing the pork industry,” said Sally Rockey, FFAR’s executive director. “While this is a clear animal welfare problem, it is also one of the most important productivity and economic issues for producers. FFAR is pleased to be part of this important research that unquestionably will have a multitude of positive impacts.”Stewart will specifically investigate management procedures for newborn piglets that can increase their survivability. “I also will be looking at the impacts of inducing parturition, the farrowing process and colostrum production from the mother and how these factors impact piglet survival.”The project’s overarching goal through effective research and extension activities is to improve swine survivability by 1 percent or more each year. Increasing the wean-to-finish survival of animals by 1 percent would represent an estimated gain in productivity of approximately 1.2 million pigs a year for the nation’s swine industry.The research team objectives include:* Evaluate producers’ management attitudes and economics associated with improving survivability in U.S. swine production.* Identify the causes of mortality on U.S. sow farms to support development and implementation of targeted strategies to maximize survivability.* Define factors that influence wean-to-finish survivability and implement management strategies based on production-based research.* Develop national extension, outreach and education resources and strategies to encourage adoption and implementation of management practices to improve survivability in pork production.The project also will train future industry leaders, including graduate students and staff, and is expected to employ undergraduate and veterinary students through internship programs.Additional information on the project team, specific efforts and progress can be followed on the project website at www.piglivability.org.Source: Purdue University News Service Purdue Researcher Part of Effort to Improve Swine Health Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Researcher Part of Effort to Improve Swine Health read more

By Tim KellySenior Week is a time that area high school seniors and recent grads traditionally spend a rite of passage week in Ocean City and other local shore towns.2018 is no exception, although a rainy and chilly start literally put a damper on the festivities for many participants.But on Tuesday, the sun came out, as did beach blankets, Spike Ball equipment, board shorts and bikinis. The Senior Weekers were making up for lost time.“Just being on the beach and the boardwalk today was the highlight,” said Julia Marinari of Lansdale (Pa) High School who was in town with fellow senior Caitlin Sands and a group of other friends. After all, that’s why we came here in the first place.”From left, Alex Cohen, Andy Schwartz, Dylan Mood, Caitlin Sands and Julia Marinari of Lansdale (Pa) Catholic High enjoying Senior Week in Ocean City.Until Tuesday’s break in the weather, Julia said her group of friends had been “hanging out and watching a whole lot of movies.”Bryan Taylor, of Holy Ghost Prep in Bensalem, Pa., was with his buddies Sean Kerrigan, Kevin Mulcahy Brendan Mindiak and Paul Bizzaro. He said coming to Ocean City was a perfect break from the pressures and stress of their final exams and completing their college selections.“It’s nice to just come to the boardwalk, or play some Spike Ball or other games on the beach,” he said. “We like the beach here because there’s plenty of room for us to spread out and (play beach sports).”Holy Ghost Prep School in Bensalem PA was well represented at Senior Week with (from left) Sean Kerrigan, Kevin Mulcahy, Ryan Taylor, Brendan Mindiak and Paul Bizzaro.Four of the five are headed to college in Pittsburgh. Taylor and Kerrigan to Duquesne; Mulcahy and Mindiak to the University of Pittsburgh. Bizzaro will go in Georgia Tech in balmy Atlanta.“We plan to get together next year in Pittsburgh and (Bizzaro) is welcome too, but only if he comes in the winter,” Taylor said.At Philly Twist snack and sandwich bar, proprietor Heidi Thompson-Novasitis said Senior Weekers would account for a large percentage of business in a normal year, but this year’s soggy start meant things were slow.“You can spot them a mile away,” she said of the visiting seniors, who love Philly Twist’s soft pretzels, chicken tenders and their signature authentic Philly cheesesteaks.Downingtown East High School’s (from left) Leah Christie, Emily Samples and Julia Neubaum.“You don’t have to offer anything fancy, it just has to be good,” she said, and the satisfied grin of customer Julia Neubaum of Downington (Pa.) East High School indicated Thompson-Novasitis’ goal had been achieved.On the volleyball courts next to Wonderland, a spirited game was taking place with players from Camden Catholic High in Cherry Hill.Other groups of Senior Week participants walked the boards, mixing easily and trying to interact with members of the opposite gender.“It’s been hard to get out and meet girls so far because of the weather,” said a young man from North Penn High School in Lansdale, Pa. “but things have improved today. “We are looking now. We are on high alert.”Proprietor Heidi Thompson-Novasitis and new employee Tadas Strasunskas of Philly Twist welcomed Senior Week visitors on Tuesday.

Swedish group, Lantmännen has sold its fresh bread business, Lantmännen Färskbröd to Finland-based baked goods and confectionery company The Fazer Group.According to the The Fazer Group’s chief executive officer, Karste Slotte, the aqcuisition of Färskbröd would make Fazer the number two player in the Swedish bread market.Per Strömberg, Lantmännen president and CEO, explained that “the Swedish fresh bread business is not in our key investment area”, noting that Färskbröd had been sold as part of Lantmännen’s ongoing strategy to create a focused and profitable business.Mainly selling its products under the Bageri Skogaholm name, Färskbröd underwent a successful “turnaround” project in 2006. “Lantmännen now considers the fresh bread business to be so solid, that we are choosing to sell it to an owner whose core business is fresh bread, with different means to develop the business in Sweden than we have,” said Lantmännen’s chairman Thomas Bodén. “It would not be fair to the employees, customers or suppliers to retain the business in Sweden without investing the necessary resources into it.”Lantmännen Unibake remains one of the group’s key investment areas. It is Unibake’s ambition to lead a European consolidation of the frozen bread sector through acquisitions and alliances.The acquisition is expected to take place later this month, following approval from the Swedish Competition Authority. read more
