In response to the spending plans, CFDG Director, Shirley Scott stated: “We are delighted that the Cross Cutting Review has emphasised what a major barrier irrecoverable VAT is to the sector’s involvement in public service provision. We really need more detail about how the Government plans to spend the very welcome additional funding and we definitely expect to be involved in the consultation and design of the major new fund. We are, however, disappointed that the Treasury did not publish the Cross Cutting review in full and wait in anticipation of its publication.” Representatives of charity finance directors have today welcomed the publication of the Government’s Spending Review which announced a £300 million boost to the voluntary and community sector.The Treasury have announced a £188 million settlement over 3 years to the Active Community Unit in the Home Office.Upon the launch of the Spending Review, the Treasury published a two page summary of the conclusions of the cross cutting review into the role of the voluntary sector in service delivery. The summary document highlights how charities made clear their concerns about the problem of irrecoverable VAT. The Treasury have announced the creation of a new fund worth £125 million to remove the barriers to service delivery and modernise the sector for the long term.

first_imgFacebook + posts Linkedin Facebook TCU retires Kurt Thomas’ jersey at halftime Saturday. (Photo Courtesy of GoFrogs.com) printTCU honored 18-season NBA veteran and former Horned Frog Kurt Thomas Saturday against Texas, retiring his No. 40 jersey at halftime.TCU head coach Jamie Dixon was surprised Thomas’ jersey wasn’t retired when he first stepped foot in Schollmaier Arena.“I came back and I was looking for Kurt’s jersey up in the stadium thinking, ‘Where’s his number? Where’s he at?” Dixon said. “When I was told TCU hadn’t retired it…I guess when you’re playing 17 years in the NBA, you’re a little busy on Friday’s and Saturday’s.”Thomas was humbled and surprised by TCU’s gesture.“This is so special, and I never thought this day would happen,” Thomas said.  “To see my number being retired at this university, it means everything because it really lets me know that the hard work that I’ve put in to get from the beginning to the end to this day was definitely worth it.”Thomas played outstanding basketball when he was wearing his Horned Frog uniform from 1990 to 1995. His 1,512 points rank seventh all-time at TCU and his 782 rebounds rank eighth.In his senior season in Fort Worth, Thomas’ game advanced to another level. During the 1994–95 season, Thomas led the NCAA in both scoring and rebound with 28.9 PPG and 14.6 RPG.  He was named a Third-Team All-American in 1995 and became the 10th overall pick in the NBA Draft.“No one even considered me going in the first round of the draft when I got to college,” Thomas said. “I was able to have some success out there on the floor and mess around and get drafted.”TCU legend Kurt Thomas and former TCU coach Billy Tubbs embrace after Thomas’ No. 40 was retired at halftime. (Photo By Garrett Podell/TCU360)In the NBA, Thomas’ career faced a few obstacles.“I got off to a slow start my second and third year in the league, and I broke my ankle four times in a period of two years,” Thomas said. “So, a lot of people thought that my career was over, but I was able to find a way to get healthy and swill play another fifteen years.”The Dallas native plans to stay local in the post-basketball phase of his life.“I do a lot of work in the community,” Thomas said. “As far as the program, I’ll try to give back whatever, whatever coach needs from me, or if the players ask for my advice, I’m definitely there and I definitely have an open ear for them.”As he took in TCU’s 78-63 victory over Texas Saturday, Thomas said he liked what he saw from the current Horned Frogs squad and their head coach.“It seems like the team is really having fun playing together, and they share the ball, it really moves.” Thomas said. “In just his first year, you always have to be patient with a coach in his first season, but right now he’s doing an excellent job.” Twitter Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Linkedin Previous articleTCU roars past Longhorns in resounding fashion, 78-63Next articleErma Lowe’s porch construction not affecting dance rehearsals Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ReddIt Twittercenter_img TAGSplayer news Men’s basketball scores season-low in NIT semifinals loss to Texas Boschini: ‘None of the talk matters because Jamie Dixon is staying’ Garrett Podell ReddIt The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J.

first_imgwinhorse/iStock(ARCADIA, Calif.) — A Southern California horse racing track canceled races indefinitely on Tuesday after another horse died this week, marking the 21st fatality since the track opened for the winter season.Santa Anita Park canceled races through the weekend with no timetable on when they would resume, just hours after a female equine suffered a fatal injury.The 4-year-old filly sustained a leg injury during training on the main track and had to be euthanized.“The safety, health and welfare of the horses and jockeys is our top priority,” said Tim Ritvo, the chief operating officer for The Stronach Group, which operates the track. “While we are confident further testing will confirm the soundness of the track, the decision to close is the right thing to do at this time.”The Grade I Santa Anita Handicap; Grade II San Felipe, a precursor to the Kentucky Derby; and Grade II San Carlos have all been postponed and will be rescheduled, according to Ritvo.Earlier, Santa Anita Park said it hired respected trackman Dennis Moore for consulting “as a precautionary measure with regard to the condition of the one mile main track.”“Moore, 69, who has more than 46 years of experience working with racing surfaces in California and worldwide, served as Santa Anita Track Superintendent from 2014 until his retirement this past Dec. 31,” the park said in a statement Tuesday. “The son of a track superintendent, Moore grew up in racing and in addition to his father, Bob, his brother Ron has also served in the same role at various tracks in California.”At least 21 horses have died while racing or training since the track opened for the winter season on Dec. 26, according to California Horse Racing Board spokesperson Mike Martin.Officials said many of the horses died after suffering various fractures, and at least one had a heart attack. Necropsies are being done to determine exact causes of death.Santa Anita Park closed its main track in Arcadia, about 17 miles northeast of Los Angeles, for four days last week to evaluate the soil and determine if recent rainfall had contributed to the spike in deaths.Park officials told ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV on Sunday that racetrack conditions were good and that 390 horses completed workouts from Thursday to Saturday without incident, but that didn’t stop animal rights protesters from showing up to the track and railing against the “ongoing danger to horses and riders from dangerous racing practices.”Experts said the unusually wet winter could have contributed to the deaths, but activists, including PETA, claimed the horses were being overworked.“Twenty dead horses is 20 too many and the only responsible action is for the track to close immediately to stop this spiral of deaths,” PETA said in a statement last weekend. “The California Horse Racing Board and Santa Anita must do this now, and law enforcement must begin an immediate investigation of trainers and veterinarians to find out if injured horses were being forced to run.”Trainers who have horses race at the park disputed allegations that the horses were being overworked.“We love these animals. We don’t send them out there thinking something bad is going to happen, and it’s stressful,” trainer Bob Baffert told KABC. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgThe University’s testing service has confirmed 212 cases of COVID-19 among students and staff for the week 24th-30th October, with a positivity rate of 29.2%. This marks the third consecutive week in which the number of new cases has remained constant and brings the total number of confirmed cases since the implementation of the University’s testing service on August 20th to 708. Figure 2: New COVID-19 Cases recorded by the University’s testing service. Data: https://www.ox.ac.uk/coronavirus/status Figure 1: Cumulative COVID-19 Cases recorded by the University’s testing service. Data: https://www.ox.ac.uk/coronavirus/status The University’s Status and Response website states that the figures released do not include positive test results received outside of the University testing service. It notes further that “due to the time interval between a test being done and the result becoming available, it is expected that there will be a mismatch between actual results and those confirmed to us on any given day”. Until Thursday, Oxford will remain in Tier 2 and residents will have to adhere to the following new measures:center_img On Saturday, Oxford was moved into Tier 2, which will remain in place until new national lockdown restrictions come into place on Thursday. Following the government announcement on Saturday night, the University has updated its guidelines: “New National Restrictions will be introduced from this Thursday (5 November). The University is now considering the impact of these measures, and further information will be made available on these pages as soon as possible. You should also refer to the UK Government website for the latest advice.” People cannot meet “socially” with anybody outside their household or support bubble indoors, including at home or in public places such as restaurants and bars. People should try to reduce the number of journeys they are making, and if they need to travel should avoid public transport where possible.  The University has implemented a four-stage emergency response, depending on how wide the spread of COVID-19 is. The current status is Stage 2, which allows the University to operate “in line with social distancing restrictions with as full a student cohort as possible on site”, with teaching and assessment taking place “with the optimum combination of in-person teaching and online learning”. A Stage 3 response would imply “no public access to the University or College buildings” and “gatherings for staff and students only permitted where essential for teaching and assessment to take place”.last_img read more

first_imgPaul CatterallBakery technology manager, Campden BRIWell the new harvest is in, so it is that time of the year when everything that goes wrong in the bakery can be blamed on the ’new crop’ flour! Millers have a difficult job; they have to produce a consistent product from an infinitely variable raw material. And as bakers, we expect one flour to make a variety of products perfectly. So we don’t want much then?A true baker should have the knowledge and skills to recognise normal variations in flour and have the experience to deal with the issues. It worries me that some of the people I meet these days in bakeries don’t have these skills and, just as importantly, they don’t have the passion for bakery products. How can we ask our staff to make a ’good’ loaf if they don’t understand what a ’good’ loaf looks like? The consumer definitely knows what they want, and if they don’t like what they see they will go elsewhere. Good quality will always sell.We all talk about training and skills development, and we take exception if we are told there is not enough training being done. Good training is not a ’tick box’ exercise “We’ve done training now, so what’s next?” It has to be continuous, it has to be refreshed, it has to be involved in all aspects of the product from the raw materials, through processing to final product characteristics.The winner of this year’s Trainee Baker of the Year at the BIA is exactly the sort of person we need in the industry. He expressed great wonderment at how products were made, how they rose in the oven, and what they tasted like. He had opinions on quality and a passion for bakery that was very obvious. It was good to see such enthusiasm in a newcomer to the industry. It makes you realise the passion is still there; it just may need unlocking.last_img read more

first_imgFans of spurious corporate litigation that we are, Stop the Week was as pleased as ever to see Subway up to its old tricks. The sandwich chain, has been wrangling its way through the UK courts, trying to prove that its toasted subs are VAT-exempt, and in so doing, posing the most profound philosophical, ’when is a toasted sandwich not a toasted sandwich?’. This time, it is going to be getting its subs out in court after trying to trademark “footlong” for its 12-inch subs.Subway in the US had issued a cease-and-desist letter against Casey’s for using the term in advertising. Casey’s was having none of it and filed a lawsuit against Subway to prove it had no proprietary ownership of “footlong”. An Iowa court will now adjudicate as the two measure up in a courtroom sub-off.The case revolves around the use of “footlong” as a noun or verb. Subway has used “footlong” as a noun across 34,000 outlets, while Casey’s has begun using it as an adjective on menus in 180 stores. The latter claims it is a generic adjective to denote 12-inch subs. Subway has already had a trademark application for restaurant services denied, but another bid for footlong to describe the sandwiches is still pending.For those of us excited by linguistic sparring, the role of grammar in trademarking will have its day in court. Sit tight, this one’s going to be a rollercoaster.last_img read more

first_imgOn Sunday, season 7 of HBO’s Game Of Thrones wrapped up, drawing 12.1 million viewers live and a total of 16.5 million viewers if you include online streaming services—a record for the already immensely popular fantasy series. We won’t get too into the details of what went down, but we will mention that while many viewers were wrapped up in the various movements of the key players in Westeros and beyond, two players of a different type made a cameo in the season finale. In “The Dragon and the Wolf,” guitarist and singer Brent Hinds and guitarist Bill Kelliher from Mastodon, the Atlanta-based metal band, appeared as wights under the Night King’s rule, making for a special appearance that might have flown under the radar for many. This appearance was not completely out of left field, however. It turns out that the show’s co-creator and showrunner, D.B. Weiss, is a big Mastodon fan, and members from the band have previously appeared on Game of Thrones during season five as members of the Wildling army.last_img read more
