The fieldwork during the “Polarstern” cruise ANT XVI/2 as a contribution to the study of bottom water formation and sea ice transport in the Weddell Sea

first_imgThe field work during ”Polarstern” cruise ANT XVI/2 aimed to measure circulation and water mass properties in the Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean, to investigate the contribution of the Weddell Sea to the ocean’s role in climate. In this respect water mass modification plays animportant role, because it leads to the formation of Antarctic Bottom Water which is an essential part of the global thermohaline circulation.last_img

Spar gives boost to Kindness sales

first_imgScottish wholesale and retail bakery Kindness Bakers says sales are up since it rebranded its two shops under the Spar fascia. The family bakery’s shops in New Deer and Maud Aberdeenshire, previously traded under the Mace fascia for 15 years, but have just officially launches as Spar. Sales have increased since the change due to an enhanced range, bakery manager Mark Kindness told British Baker.The shops sell a mix of products, baked in its wholesale bakery, as well as Spar lines supplied by Cuisine de France. Sales of general grocery lines, which include sandwiches and ready meals as well as the bakery range, have risen, he explained.”Spar is quite flexible to deal with, and I like the family atmosphere,” said Mr Kindness. “It has a strong own-label and that has been a good thing for us.”Kindess Bakers already supplies Spar on the wholesale side of it’s business, as well as other customers including retailer Somerfield. The company employs 55 people in its wholesale bakery adjoining its New Deer shop. It reaches customers spread between Elgin and Dundee, Mr Kindness said.Kindness Bakers joined Spar in October 2005 and both its stores have undergone re-branding since then. An interior refit is now in the pipeline, Mr Kindness added.last_img read more

viewpoint

first_imgAllied Bakeries is restructuring into eight regional business units – it makes a lot of sense, economically and of course environmentally. Supplying more products locally will save on food miles and allow for regional variations (pg 4).It is the shape of things to come as the environment moves from the back burner to take centre stage. Changes will not happen overnight, but sooner rather than later. I predict all bread and cakes will soon be in recyclable packaging, while standard polythene and plastic packaging will be out – permanently.But there are so many issues to balance that a lot of headaches are bound to result. As one delegate to the Federation of Bakers Conference said last week: “Do you go for fresh and recyclable or long-life and preservable?”It is a similar argument with ingredients. Do you use salt, sugar and fat as natural preservatives or do you reduce them where possible and accept a shorter shelf-life? But if that necessitates more deliveries, it in turn increases food miles. There are many dilemmas to be resolved and most delegates hoped that no-one would leap in with a publicity-grabbing snap decision on a single solution because none exists.Also high on the agenda this week is folic acid (pg 6 and 19). To add or not to add? That question has been decided. The answer was a resounding ’yes!’ But at the next FSA board meeting in mid-June the important issue of mechanics will be decided: namely at what stage should it be added and to what?Most delegates I spoke to at the conference want it added to white and brown flours (not wholemeal). This is the simple solution because it will be added at the same time as the present mandatory fortifications of calcium, iron, thiamine and niacin.Adding it to all flours will cause problems with separate feeders and some mixes. But the conference also brought illumination in the person of Professor Robert Pickard, director general of the British Nutrition Foundation, who pointed out that folates are most important at conception and the first month of pregnancy when most people do not even realise they are pregnant. Also 10% of British women have difficulty recycling (metabolising) folate in their bodies. This is the nub of the argument for adding folic acid.last_img read more

Strike threat at Fox’s Biscuits

first_imgUnion members at Fox’s Biscuits’ plants in Kirkham, Lancashire, and Batley, Yorkshire, are being balloted for strike action after rejecting a third pay deal.The Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union (BFAWU) will ballot around 400 of its members by post between 17 September and 1 October on industrial action over what it says are unacceptable proposals from Fox’s parent company, the 2 Sisters Food Group, to change workers’ terms and conditions as part of a 3% pay offer.The company’s latest offer proposes changes to the workers’ redundancy package and cutting double pay on Sundays and is the third one on the table, all of which have been rejected by the union.The original offer was only rejected by a majority of three votes in a workplace ballot, with the union at Kirkham actually recommending the deal to its members, said 2 Sisters.A spokesman for the company said: “We still believe our pay offer of 3% is an attractive one in the current climate and while we’re disappointed that our proposals on pay and conditions have been rejected, we note the significant numbers voting to accept the offer in line with the union recommendation to accept.”Geoff Atkinson, BFAWU regional organising secretary, said: “We are always open to meaningful dialogue, but not if companies are just paying lip service, while trying to steal our hard-won terms and conditions.” 2 Sisters said the changes were essential for the sites to remain competitive and viable in the future in what it described as a “tough” biscuits market.Workers at Fox’s other factory in Uttoxeter, who are part of the unite Union, accepted a pay deal earlier this year, said the 2 Sisters spokesman.The 2 Sisters Food Group reported profits of £17.3m for the 13 weeks to 28 April, 2012.last_img read more

How the gut got its villi

first_img Read Full Story “You are not just a ball of cells,” says Clifford Tabin, George Jacob and Jacqueline Hazel Leder Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School (HMS).The way cells organize within the human body allows us all to function the way we do, but a couple of Harvard professors are concerned as much with that developmental process as with the end result. Tabin shares a common perspective with L. Mahadevan, the Lola England de Valpine Professor of Applied Mathematics at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), professor of organismic and evolutionary biology, and professor of physics.“When I teach medical students, they’re more interested in the rare people who are born with birth defects,” says Tabin. “They want to understand embryology so they understand how things go awry, but I’m more interested in the fact that for everyone sitting in my classroom—all 200 of those medical students and dental students—it went right! And every one of them has a heart on the left side and every one of them has two kidneys, and how the heck do you do that?”By taking steps back through embryos’ development, researchers in Mahadevan’s and Tabin’s laboratories investigated how the guts of several different animals end up as they do. Their findings, published in a recent issue of Science, reveal that the principles guiding the growth of intestinal structures called villi are surprisingly similar across chickens, frogs, mice, and snakes.last_img read more
