Doughnut firm’s success prompts expansion plans

first_imgThe London-based Dum Dum Donutterie is expanding, with locations earmarked in the UK and several overseas as it looks to triple its first year’s turnover. Launched a year ago, Dum Dums is listed in Harrods and has three sites – in Fenchurch Street, East London, Shoreditch’s Boxpark, and Westfield at Stratford.Founder Paul Hurley told British Baker: “Turnover far exceeds expectations. From the grab-and-go site I expect to do in excess of half a million pounds a year and for the café concept we are looking at higher than that. I imagine we will triple last year’s sales this year and probably exceed that. Last year we were working with just a couple of concepts and we’ll probably double those in the UK in the next couple of months.“I want to reach 20 sites in London and then look to set up in cities around the world. I’d keep it relatively exclusive and then replicate the model across the world.”He said sites in London’s Camden, Brixton and Soho would open “in the very near future”, with suburbs in Essex, the south and south-west next on the agenda.International expansionInternational regions chosen for expansion include Singapore, Dubai and New York, where sites should open “in the coming months”.“We have a little US community and interest from the Far East. Our international sites would run as joint ventures with other business owners, while all UK sites would be owned and run by Dum Dum’s employees. I wouldn’t let many franchises happen – only with partners who have food backgrounds.“In sites abroad I’d look for sites large enough to allow a café concept with seats and we’ll also do kiosks. The idea is that Dum Dums is a flexible concept and works as a pop-up, café or more of a restaurant with seating.The company is providing doughnuts at the Brits after-party next Wednesday (25 February) and Hurley is starting work on his first book of recipes, which will launch next year.Hurley has a patent for the way Dum Dums makes doughnuts – baked instead of deep-fried. The bakers can choose how much oil they use and sell ‘healthier’ doughnuts with just 6g of fat as a result.last_img read more

Kingfield Board of Selectmen discuss flooding road

first_imgKINGFIELD – The Board of Selectpersons convened for the first time in the new year on Jan. 18 via Zoom.The Board approved the new earned paid leave policy that is now required by state law.The law took effect Jan. 1 and states that any employer that has ten or more employees must offer one hour of paid leave for every 40 hours worked.In a prior workshop the board discussed the idea of paying off accrued sick time for employees to start everything fresh with the new earned paid leave policy.“We were going to pay off the sick time that was accrued so we are all starting off on an even keel going forward,” Board Chair Wade Browne said.The board voted to pay the $10,254 in accrued sick time which will come out of the Selectmen’s Contingency.The board reviewed a quote of $16,500 for town office remodeling. The estimate didn’t include new flooring or the secure work stations for the office employees. The workstations are intended to protect the office employees by providing glass with a voice hole and a slot to exchange papers.Currently the front office is closed as a safety precaution.“It’s all Covid driven at this point…if the disease isn’t getting any better than we ought to leave it closed,” Walter Kilbreth said.The rest of the board echoed Kilbreth’s sentiment.“We don’t need to endanger our help,” Raymond Meldrum said..The board approved the sewer commitment from January to March.The board also voted to accept passed quit claim deeds.At the end of the meeting Kilbreth brought up the flooding that occurs on Rapid Stream Rd. Though Rapid Stream isn’t a town road the residents are looking for assistance in doing something about the river.Kilbreth argued that the town doesn’t have responsibility to protect the road, but it does have a responsibility to protect the people on that road.“If there was an emergency up there and there’s flooding, somebody will die,” Kilbreth said. “We’ve had two floods in three weeks.”The town hasn’t put any money into the issue yet, but they do have someone looking into options for what can be done about the Rapid Stream.last_img read more

Don Henley Reveals That The Eagles Have Broken Up

first_imgThank you for all the music, The Eagles. After countless farewell tours and subsequent reunions, Don Henley confirmed the inevitable. Following the death of founding member Glenn Frey, it seems that the band is hanging up “Hotel California” once and for all.In a new interview with BBC, Henley was asked about the band’s performance at the GRAMMYs and whether they would perform again. He responded, “That was the final farewell. I don’t think you’ll see us performing again. I think that was probably it. I think it was an appropriate farewell.”The farewell saw a number of long-time members of the Eagles play the song “Take It Easy” with Jackson Browne, who co-wrote the hit song with Glenn Frey back in 1972. In the interview, Henley said “we almost didn’t do it,” just because of how emotional it was.last_img read more

WHO: world has historic chance to gird for pandemic flu

first_imgNov 11, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – The outbreak of H5N1 avian influenza in Asia gives the world its first opportunity to prepare a vaccine in advance for a potential pandemic strain of flu, the World Health Organization (WHO) said today as it convened a meeting of vaccine companies and health officials to consider the challenge.Representatives of vaccine manufacturers and government officials from the manufacturers’ countries are meeting at WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, to discuss how to develop vaccines for pandemic flu.”The current outbreak of H5N1 is a stark warning that conditions are highly favourable for the emergence of a pandemic virus,” the WHO said in a statement on its Web site. “For the first time in history, there is a window of opportunity to consider using a pandemic vaccine in humans at a time when a virus with significant pandemic potential is circulating in large parts of Asia.”The H5N1 strain of avian flu has infected at least 44 people in Asia this year and has killed 32. The virus has not been known to spread from person to person, but experts fear that it could acquire this ability through mutation, potentially leading to a pandemic.The WHO noted that vaccines have never been available during past pandemics, including the last two, in 1957 and 1968, when annual vaccination programs for ordinary flu were fully established. Past pandemic strains were not discovered until they began spreading internationally, the agency said. The viruses spread worldwide in 6 to 8 months, far too short a time to develop and distribute a vaccine.A few companies have begun to develop vaccines for potential pandemic viruses, the WHO said. “However, production capacity for a pandemic vaccine will be vastly inadequate unless other companies engage in vaccine seed development and preparation of batches for clinical testing,” the agency said.The statement said vaccine makers face two major challenges: finding the optimal formulation for a pandemic vaccine through clinical trials, and registering their vaccine with their national drug licensing agency.”Such registration, done with a ‘template’ influenza subtype which will eventually be replaced by the strain actually causing the epidemic, is a condition which every manufacturer must fulfill to produce pandemic vaccine, regardless of when the next pandemic occurs and which strain causes it,” the WHO said.In the United States, Aventis Pasteur Inc. and Chiron Corp. each won a government contract last May to produce 8,000 to 10,000 doses of an H5N1 vaccine based on virus isolated from a Vietnamese patient. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said it would use the vaccines in clinical trials.In September, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded a contract to Aventis Pasteur to make 2 million doses of its H5N1 vaccine for about $13 million. HHS officials then said clinical trials would start late this year or early next year.See also:WHO statement about Geneva meetinghttp://www.who.int/csr/disease/influenza/meeting2004_11_08/en/Sep 21, 2004, CIDRAP News story “HHS awards contract for H5N1 avian flu vaccine”May 28, 2004, CIDRAP News story, “NIAID seeks vaccines for H5N1 avian flu”last_img read more

After the First International Festival Split Art Convention, the band RØLØ will be in charge of socializing, playing from 21:00 in the club Cirkus Split – Monty Python.Split has once again shown that it works to create culturally inspired tourist facilities, because the city is becoming the basic space of culture of the future, then it is possible to assume that city identities will surely become a cultural phenomenon in the future, and therefore an increasing offer of attractiveness. is culture largely recognized as a vital development segment of tourism through the domain of “cultural tourism” which, in addition to the traditional focus of valorization of cultural and historical heritage, also activates new cultural and creative production as part of the tourist offer.This is the level of functioning of communities in which identity issues become the critical point of a new understanding and practice of community. Culture today in modern tourism has not only a perceptual role, but it is also an important content of the stay in which tourists are active participants. Moreover, culture becomes not only one of the more important contents of a stay, but often also the main motive for traveling to certain destinations.last_img read more

first_imgThe mayor lamented that despite thecurrent emergency public health situation, DepEd and DILG could not temporarilyslacken on the paper requirements “that make it difficult for us to use theschool.” It was good that the University Iloilo(UI)-Phinma and Sta. Maria Catholic School offered their school facilities,said Treñas. “Situations like this make me verysad,” said Treñas. DepEd and DILG sought a memorandum ofagreement (MOA) with the city government. The city government thus decided toremove seven patients under investigation (PUIs) and a person under monitoring(PUM) for possible COVID-19 infection from Iloilo Central Elementary Schoolwhere they have been confined in isolation for several days now. PUIs are persons showing COVID-19symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing. PUMs are those notshowing the symptoms but have a history of travel to areas with confirmed COVID-19cases. ILOILO City – Mayor Jerry Treñasexpressed frustration at the “so many” paper requirements that the Departmentof Education (DepEd) and Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG)asked from the city government for the use of Iloilo Central Elementary Schoolas isolation facility for suspected cases of coronavirus disease 2019(COVID-19). Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN On the other hand, he thanked UI andSta. Maria Catholic School for their generosity and understanding. They would be transferred to a privateschool which offered a building as temporary isolation facility for suspectedCOVID-19 cases, according to Treñas.

The MOA withthem will come later kon magtawhay na,”said Treñas. “So bay-an ta na lang ang DepEd. Magwana lang ta da sa central school kayginapabudlayan kita,” he said./PNlast_img read more

Athlete’s and Marijuana

first_imgIf athlete’s were not getting their names in public enough for some of their off-field exploits, now we have the marijuana debate going on in society.  After all, it is legal in Colorado to deal in marijuana.  Does that mean an adult athlete in Colorado can freely participate in its usage just like any other citizen of the state?  What kind of rules can a university place on its student athletes?All across the United States there is more and more support for legalizing this plant, and each voting period it seems another state makes it legal.  How many tests can an athlete fail and still participate?  Some universities now allow 2 failed tests before they suspend the athlete.  Everyone knows that whatever drug people start out with, most will eventually try something harder.  We do not need collegiate athletes snorting heroin.If you do not clamp down on marijuana, what will you do with the casual use of alcohol by athletes and their occasional DWI’s and/or DUI’s?  Do you allow them 2 failed tests, also?  It is not an easy solution unless you ban everything.last_img read more
