Show time

first_imgOver 14,600 visitors attended Food & Bake in 2004, with visitor numbers from the in-store and plant bakery sectors increasing by 55%. This year, the organisers say the show will be bigger and better, with over 15,000sq m of stand space dedicated to ingredients and mixes, frozen and chilled foods, catering equipment, bakery machinery and hygiene and technology innovation. The show is co-located with a number of other food exhibitions, and over 40,000 visitors are expected over the four days. Look out for the new Confectionery Pavilion and Business Services area, as well as the highly popular crèche facility and the free breakfast.Free parking is on offer to all visitors, and when you validate your parking ticket in the hall you will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win an Audi A4 – worth £21,000.Ingredients exhibitorsThis week we take a look at some of the highlights to be seen on the stands of the ingredients exhibitors.ADM Milling (stand C400) says its investment in the latest laboratory instrumentation and equipment means it can ensure the highest product standards. The company will be showing texture analysis equipment and its C-Cell bread imaging system. A key part of the quality control process, says ADM, texture analysis equipment gives accurate measurement data on the performance of flours in both dough extensibility and bread firmness. And the C-Cell system enables analysis of finished bread characteristics, such as cell structure and distribution, holes and shape.Australian ginger producer Buderim Ginger (stand P240) will be showing visitors how to use ginger in sweet and savoury goods. Products on display will include Standard Fine Dice, Ginger Pulp, Shreds, Crystallised and Ginger Purée. The company says ginger is complemented particularly well by macadamia nuts and will be highlighting this on the stand. The nuts are supplied by Suncoast Gold Macadamias.Dawn Foods (stand B400) supplies US-style bakery goods such as donuts, cookies, cakes and muffins. The company will showcase its new Bakers Select products, which are low in salt, low in saturated fat and trans-fat free. Breads made using Fermex’s (stand F100) Minute Bread Improver will be available for tasting on the company’s stand. Fermex says that part-baked breads made with the improver can be baked-off in as little as two minutes in a conventional oven, without the need for steam, and that breads are fully thawed, but cool in a matter of minutes after the bake. Minute Breads available for tasting will feature Crème de Levain, a live liquid sourdough used in the fermentation process to develop flavour.Filling launchJames Mackle (stand B310) is launching its Natural Apple Filling and taste tests will be given on the stand. The ready-sweetened product is said to offer a fresh apple taste with a natural colour and appearance, as well as good bake-stability and fill retention. Packed in 10kg plastic pails, Natural Apple Filling has a five-week shelf-life, if kept chilled. Ingredients supplier S Black (stand AC131) will launch a range of taste- and odour-free omega 3 nutritional oils. The newly-available forms of omega 3 are manufactured by Norwegian-based Denomega Nutritional Oils and include an odour- and taste-free liquid oil, powder and liquid emulsion. The omega 3 content varies from 13% to 30% with a DHA to EPA ratio of 1:1. Denomega powder can be used in baked goods or where a dry mix is needed. At the show, S Black will also highlight a range of trans-free fats from Loders Croklaan and a range of natural ingredients that include bake-stable flavours and reduced sodium solutions that can help in the production of healthier baked goods. Additionally, the firm’s grapeseed and rosemary extracts exhibit antioxidant properties that can help reduce staling, thereby increasing shelf-life, naturally. A raft of products will be debuted by Unifine Food & Bake Ingredients (stand F250). Liquid Mix 269 is a yoghurt stabiliser creating mousse-light products with the texture of bavarois, while Air Crème is a cream concentrate for creating fonds and bavarois. Air Crème is claimed to have a higher yield than other cream concentrates and, once made up, costs up to 20% less than its rivals. Real Belgian chocolate Belnap Chocolate Glaze is a freeze/thaw-stable mirror-style glaze for cakes, doughnuts, éclairs and muffins, which will not crack when frozen. And a Toffee & Maple filling for Danish, morning goods and cakes is also new, as is Cassis Fond for patisserie and cakes.Also on show is Plusfil – a powder ingredient which expands and stabilises fillings during baking. Wrapable Icing is a white icing that contains no artificial colouring, flavouring or additives. It is freeze/thaw-stable and sticks to the product, not its packaging, says Unifine.Products with a low glycaemic index are increasingly in demand, and Bakels (stand J125) says its Multiseed Bread Concentrate fits the bill perfectly. The concentrate contains pumpkin, linseed and sunflower seeds, plus wheat, bran and oat flakes to produce a darker-style bread with a coarse, open texture. The bread is approved for a diabetic diet by the charity Diabetes UK and also has a salt level 25% below that of normal breads. By contrast, those looking for an indulgent treat will find Bakels’ Gourmet Filled Biscuits offer a good opportunity for impulse purchases. Frozen and ready to bake, the biscuits are available in Chocolate Cherry, Fruit Mince, Chocolate Mint and Pecan Latte varieties. Visitors to the stand are offered a £2 high street voucher for every 16kg bag of Multiseed Bread Concentrate or 5kg carton of Gourmet Filled Biscuits they order. Free point-of-sale material is available for both products.

McDowell calls for schedule change

first_img As well as playing the Ryder Cup in even-numbered years, the top US players take on an International team in the Presidents Cup in odd-numbered years. ” I think it’s difficult for a lot of the stalwart Americans who play year-in, year-out, Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup,” McDowell said ahead of the 40th Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, which gets under way on Friday. Press Association “I’ve spoken to a few of them and they are of the belief that this needs to be every three years so that they can play a Ryder Cup and a Presidents Cup and have a year off. I would be a supporter of that. “I think for their level of engagement they need that, because when you look at the likes of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Steve Stricker and Jim Furyk who have played eight, nine, 10, 12 of these in a row, they do lose their shine. “This event has become such a global spectacle and such a huge passion, emotional week, we want them to be as into it as we are.” American captain Tom Watson said he still favoured the Ryder Cup being played every two years, but admitted that he was concerned with the amount of golf being played before this year’s contest. Watson successfully lobbied for a week off before Gleneagles to be included in this year’s PGA Tour schedule, meaning the four FedEx Cup play-off events were played in consecutive weeks. ” I am concerned about how much these players are playing before they reach the Ryder Cup, I’m very concerned about that,” the 65-year-old said. “Two years ago I made my point to Ted Bishop (PGA of America president) and to Tim Finchem (PGA Tour commissioner) about a week off between the end of the FedExCup. “These players are playing seven out of eight tournaments or eight out of nine tournaments in a row. They are tired. That’s too much golf.” center_img Graeme McDowell believes the Ryder Cup should be played once every three years to take account of the demands placed on American players.last_img read more

Blues ‘battle United’ for player

first_imgChelsea are locked in a ‘titanic battle’ to sign highly-rated teenage midfielder Paul Pogba from Manchester United, according to the Daily Mirror.Pogba, 18, has been stalling over signing a new contract at Old Trafford and Chelsea are said to be keen to capture him but have picked up mixed messages from his camp about whether he wants to move.AVB remains in the news.The Sun say Daniel Sturridge is considering his future at Chelsea.A friend of the player is quoted as saying: “Daniel will be distraught if Chelsea finish outside the top four — he’s desperate to prove himself at the highest level and that means he wants Champions League football, not Europa League.”Sturridge, 22, was recently reported to want an improved contract at Stamford Bridge and is apparently unhappy at being played on the wing rather than as a central striker.The Daily Mail say Chelsea’s apparent emergency plan to reappoint Guus Hiddink suffered a setback after it emerged he is a serious candidate to take over at ambitious Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala.The Independent, Sun and Daily Telegraph report yesterday’s comments by Andre Villas-Boas’ former president at Porto, Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa.He suggested that the under-pressure Chelsea manager could take over at Inter Milan and that members of the Blues squad are texting ex-boss Jose Mourinho – who has been linked with a return to west London.Mark Hughes is having a difficult start as QPR boss.Mourinho has been accused of undermining AVB’s position, The Sun declare.The Sun claimed on Tuesday that Jose Bosingwa was one of only three Chelsea players who are fully behind their manager.And The Mirror today quote the defender as saying: “The dressing room has confidence in the coach. Villas-Boas is a good coach and he’s demonstrated that with his success in Portugal.”Meanwhile, the Daily Star claim QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has turned up the heat on manager Mark Hughes with his comments on Twitter following the weekend defeat at Blackburn.Fernandes has been widely reported as having accused Rangers’ players of being ‘spineless’ after tweeting: “Talent is one thing. We need a spine in QPR. We need fighters not just talent.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

The Hip-Hop Word Count Counts on Language to Understand the Reality We Keep

What You Can Watch on Chromecast, And How

first_imgHow Intelligent Data Addresses the Chasm in Cloud One of the most common questions I hear about Google’s new Chromecast gadget is, “What can I watch on it?” That’s a fair question, considering that Google only mentioned a few streaming resources—primarily YouTube and Netflix—at its press event last week.That’s because only four services (see below) currently support the Google Cast technology that lets you beam streaming video straight to your TV from the Web, using a phone or tablet as a remote control. But you don’t have to rely on streaming providers to adopt Google Cast. You can also stream to Chromecast from the Chrome browser on a PC or Mac, thanks to a process Google calls tab casting.That expands your immediate horizons quite a bit. And app developers big and small are also looking to jump on the Chromecast bandwagon, which would further open things up. Related Posts adriana lee Casting from a computer is a stop-gap measure—some fill-in functionality to keep you going until more streaming companies support Chromecast directly. By the looks of it, a lot of them are interested in doing just that.That’s to Google’s credit. When it unveiled Chromecast, it also debuted a Google Cast software developer kit. With this SDK, app makers can easily build in Chromecast support for new and existing mobile and Web apps, says the tech giant, in less than 200 lines of code. If Google isn’t exaggerating things, that’s pretty simple.To recap, Google managed to release cheap streaming devices that are in high demand, and it appears to have paved the way for developers to climb onto the Chromecast bandwagon. So even if you’re disappointed by what Chromecast offers at this moment, the odds seem good that more streams will be flowing your way before much longer.Images by Madeleine Weiss for ReadWrite Tags:#cloud#connected TV#media#streaming Your current options, however, vary depending on your tech setup and other factors, so read on to see the breakdown of what you can watch, and how, using Chromecast.Streaming Resources That Support ChromecastGoogle devised a creative method of streaming that, upon demand, enables Chromecast to pull in the requested media directly from the Web. For services that support this, the TV streaming action starts by tapping a “cast” button or link that sits directly in those websites and/or mobile apps.Out of the box, the Chromecast works with a small group of “starter” services:Netflix – mobile app and websiteYouTube – mobile app and websiteGoogle Play Movies & TV – mobile app (Android only)Google Play Music – mobile app (Android only)Since these streams flow in from the Internet, there’s no major battery or performance hit for the originating smartphone, tablet or laptop. And those devices can control the playback, pause and volume rather easily. (See also: 10 Things You Need To Know About Google’s New Chromecast)Google doesn’t offer iOS apps for its own Play services, and oddly enough I couldn’t find a “cast” option on their websites. I did, however, manage to stream them from my laptop via tab casting.Resources That Work Via Tab Castingcenter_img Tab casting, a beta feature, essentially lets the Chromecast mirror one of your Chrome browser tabs. This allows you to play local files, shared online playlists and other streaming media websites.Via tab casting, in fact, you can watch (or listen to) a whole bunch of stuff, including:Amazon Instant Video; ABC; AOL; CBSCrackle; Fox; Google Plus photos/slideshowsHBO Go; Justin.tv; NBCMLB.TV; Pandora; Plex; Post TVQello; Rdio; Revision 3; SlackerSongza; Spotify; Vimeo Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Cloud Hosting for WordPress: Why Everyone is Mo… See also: The Chromecast App Drought Breaks, Sort of, As Hulu Signs OnAnd much, much more. Coincidentally (or not), many of these streaming services are looking at Chromecast integration similar to what Netflix and YouTube offer. Google spotlighted Pandora, and HBO is looking into Chromecast support. Meanwhile, Plex, Redbox Instant and Vimeo, among others, are hinting (often broadly) at their interest as well. See also: 5 Cool Chromecast Hacks And WorkaroundsWhile all that Chromecast integration gets underway, what you need to know about tab casting is that it works on most streaming sites, excepting videos that use the Silverlight and Quicktime plugins. I tried Apple’s Quicktime-based online movie trailers, for instance, and the audio stubbornly stayed on the computer. It simply refused to pipe to the TV. [T]ab casting only works on tabs from Chrome’s desktop browser (for now); no mobile version on any platform can cast tabs.There are other catches as well. Tab casting works best if the source computer has decent processing power and works off a solid Wi-Fi network. Otherwise, lags and stutters will likely plague the stream. In addition, tab casting only works on tabs from Chrome’s desktop browser (for now); no mobile version on any platform can cast tabs.Tab-casted streams aren’t controllable via mobile devices either. You have to go back to the original computer to stop, pause or scrub the playback, and without benefit of a dedicated TV-oriented interface. File types can also make a big difference. Here’s what Google listed under “Supported Media Types”: All Google Cast devices at a minimum support the following media types:Video codecs: H.264 High Profile Level 4.1, 4.2 and 5, VP8 Audio decoding: HE-AAC, LC-AAC, CELT/OPUS, MP3 Containers: MP4/CENC, WebM, MPEG-DASH, SmoothStreaming Level 1 DRM support: Widevine, Playready Subtitles: TTML – Timed Text Markup Language WebVTT – Web Video Text TracksIf you’re not well-versed in audio or video codecs, here’s a general rule of thumb: In most cases, media that plays fine in a Chrome browser tab can be sent to and played by Chromecast. But also know that in some cases, audio playback could suffer somewhat. See also: Have Chromecast, Will Travel … Er, Maybe NotIf you have local files that Chrome won’t open, and can only play it in a separate standalone computer program, you could play it and cast your entire desktop to the TV. But this an act of desperation. Screen casting doesn’t pipe audio to Chromecast, and the stream can be buggy, especially if you don’t have a powerful computer. Still, if you’re so inclined, it’s something you can play around with. To try it, open the Chrome browser on your desktop, hit the “cast” extensions button, click the small arrow to release a drop-down menu, and choose “Cast entire screen (experimental).”More Will Come Streaming In Soon Serverless Backups: Viable Data Protection for …last_img read more

Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 38, but is denied MVP in defeat

first_imgCHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA – FEBRUARY 17: Giannis Antetokounmpo #34 of the Milwaukee Bucks and Team Giannis reacts against Team LeBron in the first quarter during the NBA All-Star game as part of the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend at Spectrum Center on February 17, 2019 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Streeter Lecka/Getty Images/AFPCHARLOTTE, N.C. — Midway through the third quarter, Giannis Antetokounmpo said he began thinking he had a chance to become the first international player to win the NBA All-Star Game MVP.But the thought was fleeting, as Team LeBron mounted a rally and came from behind to defeat Team Giannis 178-164 on Sunday night. While Antetokounmpo finished with 38 points and 10 rebounds, Kevin Durant won the award.ADVERTISEMENT “We didn’t win and that’s why I didn’t get it,” the Milwaukee Bucks star said.He had taken some advice before the game about how to approach things from his brother, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, who has won the last two MVP awards in the Greek League.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption charges Curry called it a play that nobody else in the gym could have made.“His length, finishing it, and getting it before it came down.

So for it to be choreographed like that was pretty nice.”Antetokounmpo just smiled after the play, maybe even stunned by his own athleticism.“I’m going to keep getting better,” Antetokounmpo said. “Hopefully, I can get as many MVPs as my brother has.”Durant doesn’t doubt that will happen.ADVERTISEMENT Urgent reply from Philippine ‍football chief ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes LATEST STORIES US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants Grace Poe files bill to protect govt teachers from malicious accusations Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:29Giannis Antetokounmpo powers Bucks in bounce back win over Celtics02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss MOST READcenter_img He said the 23-year-old Antetokounmpo has “potential through the roof.”“It is scary to see how far he can keep going,” Durant said of the 6-foot-11 Antetokounmpo. “His game is still rounding into shape and he is still getting better. But he’s in the elite top three of the MVP candidates (at 24). So, to be that young and already at the top of the class as one of the elites in the game, it is a joy to watch his progression.”Antetokounmpo lived up to his billing as the best player in the Eastern Conference now that LeBron James has moved to the Los Angeles Lakers.But, he said the fact that he was the team captain isn’t going to his head.“It’s easy as long as you stay humble and down to earth,” Antetokounmpo said of handling his role as the All-Star Game team leader on Sunday night. “It’s easy. I think just being a leader of the team, it wasn’t as tough as I thought because my teammates, the guys in the locker room encouraged me to step up and take it serious and play hard and help the team to win. So that was kind of easy tonight.” Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town View comments Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Jolina dela Cruz has impressive UAAP debut in starting role for La Salle SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte PDEA chief backs Robredo in revealing ‘discoveries’ on drug war Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Colts Acquire RB Trent Richardson From Browns

Photo by isportsweb.comTrent Richardson, the former Alabama running back who was to be the cornerstone of the Cleveland Browns’ resurgence, was traded to the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday in a move that bolsters’ Indy’s running game.ESPN first reported the surprising transaction.
