  • Brothers combine Indian and bakery

    first_imgCombining Indian food with a traditional bakery offer is proving a hitwith customers of Hurst Bakery & Provisions, based in Berkshire. Ownedby brothers Jitu and Duras Miah, it produces bread, rolls, cakes,morning goods and sandwiches – but Indian food is also on the menu. Thebrothers bought the 78-year-old shop as a going concern in 2006 andwanted to offer something that other companies didn’t. The pair’srestaurant-owning background means they can serve up curries, naanbread and samosas to custo-mers, which Jitu says is proving a success. Spicy food is also on the company’s new catering menu – launched in February – and already bringing in orders for work events and parties of up to 200 people at a time. “It’s an unusual bakery,” said Jitu, “but we’ve also tried to create a homely atmosphere.” He added that the pair had launched the catering side of the business after getting lots of enquiries from customers. “There’s definitely demand for the service and I’m confident that it will take off,” said Jitu.last_img read more

    first_img Twitter WhatsApp Twitter Google+ Pinterest Facebook CoronavirusIndianaNewsSouth Bend Market Facebook (Tommie Lee/95.3 MNC) One of the side effects of the stay at home Coronavirus world is less crime and less criminals in jail. Several weeks ago area jails began releasing some inmates to create more space to battle Coronavirus. For St. Joseph county it appears that those efforts, and some changes in arrest policies, have helped.St. Joseph County Sheriff Bill Redmen tells WSBT that right now the jail is at about 50% capacity.

  • El Salvador in Last Phase of Preparing New Peacekeeping Contingent

    first_imgBy Lorena Baires / Diálogo September 17, 2018 United Nations (UN) delegates screened the equipment and flight technology the Salvadoran Air Force’s (FAS, in Spanish) Gavilán I Air Contingent will use as it joins the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA, in French) in September 2018. UN experts carried out the second-to-last inspection at the Combat Helicopter Air Unit (UAHA, in Spanish) of FAS’s First Air Brigade in Ilopango municipality, July 30th. “Delegates evaluated and verified operational and logistics capabilities of our personnel and supervised the refurbishing of three MD 500 assault helicopters to be deployed in the city of Gao, in northeastern Mali,” said FAS Colonel Eduardo Salazar, UAHA commander. “The evaluation was successful thanks to the personnel’s efforts and dedication, their knowledge, and the skills they developed in the field.” The Gavilán I contingent will consist of pilots and specialists in communication, maintenance, and weaponry. “This is the third air contingent FAS deploys in MINUSMA; it will work simultaneously with the Torogoz IV contingent and the Airfield Ground Services Unit,” Salvadoran Minister of Defense David Munguía Payés said during the UN experts’ visit. “Their mission will be to provide air and land escort, and air fire support when required. We contribute to international security and peace by supporting transition authorities.” The most outstanding work of Gavilán I’s maintenance team is the full installation of different systems in three helicopters. “Our personnel excelled in adapting the avionics equipment the United Nations requires, including GPS; emergency locator transmitters; cabin audio and video systems for pilots, and VHF communications; and the filtering system to prevent polluting dust from entering the engines,” said FAS Chief Master Sergeant Alex Fuentes, UAHA maintenance supervisor. Service members will transport the three helicopters on a cargo plane, along with basic aircraft maintenance equipment. “The main equipment will be transported by sea in containers. [Trucks], micro-buses, and an electric plant will be included, as well as medium and large capacity power generators,” Col. Salazar said. High-profile team UAHA is an elite team within FAS. “Our unit is trained to carry out operations such as reconnaissance and observation, personnel transport, medical evacuation, escort, and air fire support when necessary,” Chief Master Sgt. Fuentes said. Maintenance personnel traveling to Gao were selected based on practical capabilities and experience. The contingent consists of 12 service members specialized in avionics, radio communications, aircraft electrical systems, instruments, metal frame construction, air weaponry, supplies, and aerospace support equipment. According to FAS authorities, the personnel’s constant training, especially maintenance personnel, who received different training at avionics companies of the United States, made UN delegates’ approval possible. “They recently took part in a training event on engines, to learn to solve machines’ most common failures. This makes us more competent,” Col. Salazar said. To take over the new mission, the maintenance squadron has a test pilot in charge of analyzing the equipment on the ground and doing test flights to certify the aircraft is in optimal condition to fly in Gao. “We are also equipped with spare parts, accessories, tools, and aviation equipment,” Chief Master Sgt. Fuentes said. The Salvadoran contingent will be based in Camp Castor, with service members from Austria, Canada, Estonia, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. The camp, managed by German service members, was built in 2014, and is separated from the so-called “super-camp” that hosts almost all peacekeeping troops. The Gavilán I contingent will replace the German assault helicopters group and conduct combined work with European countries and Canada, which recently joined to strengthen the camp with air transport resources.last_img read more

  • Senate takes up slip-and-fall cases

    first_img Senate takes up slip-and-fall cases April 1, 2002 Regular News Saying a recent Supreme Court decision shifted too much of the burden of proof to defendants in “slip-and-fall” cases, a Senate committee has approved a bill setting a new standard.The Banking and Insurance Committee approved SB 2256 March 12 by a 12-0 vote, after hearing it was supported by most business lobbies and the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers.Sen. Ginny Brown-Waite, R-Brooksville, sponsor of the bill, said it was intended to change the burden of proof in premises liability cases set by a Supreme Court majority in Owens v. Publix Supermarkets, Inc., 802 So. 2d 315 (Fla. 2001).Before Owens, the plaintiff had the burden of showing that the defendant either knew a hazard existed or should have known that it existed, Brown-Waite said, while the decision required the defendant to show reasonable care was exercised to prevent dangerous conditions.The minority in the 4-3 decision criticized it as going too far, including saying it “rewrote the law in slip-and-fall,” Brown-Waite said. “It’s the prerogative of this legislature to examine court decisions and make changes.”“What the Owens case did was virtually shift all of the elements on burden of proof over to the defendant,” said Bill Hurley, representing the Florida Retail Federation. “All the plaintiff has to show is duty [to provide a safe premises] and injury.“What we have done with the compromise is shifted the burden back to the plaintiff,” he added, noting the plaintiff, however, can show a negligent mode of operation by a preponderance of the evidence.Paul Jess, of the academy, said while his organization preferred the standards set out in the Owens decision, “We do not object to the bill in its present form.”Mike Huey, representing the Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association, opposed the bill, saying it didn’t go far enough in protecting business owners.“The old duty was the premises owner had to exercise reasonable care in maintaining the premises in a safe condition,” he said. “The new duty will be that the business premises owner owes a duty of reasonable care. . . including reasonable efforts to keep the premises free of transitory foreign objects or substances that might foreseeably give rise to injuries, loss or damage. What is a transitory foreign object? There is no such thing as a transitory foreign object that might not give rise to injury, loss, or damage.”But Brown-Waite called the bill fair.“The business community considers it a win, and the trial lawyers consider it less of a loss than the original bill,” she said.The Senate bill has been sent to its calendar for floor action while an identical House measure, HB 1545, is already pending action before the full House.center_img Senate takes up slip-and-fall caseslast_img read more

  • CUNA supports Fannie, Freddie housing goals for 2021

    first_img CUNA remains strongly supportive of the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s efforts to ensure the Government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs or the Enterprises) meet their public mission, it wrote to the agency Tuesday in response to a proposal outlining affordable housing goals for 2021. The FHFA states that both single-family and multifamily housing goals for 2021 will remain the same as the 2018-2020 levels, but the agency will engage in a new rulemaking next year to establish new levels for 2022 and beyond.“[W]e acknowledge the constraints that the COVID-19 crisis has currently placed on FHFA’s ability to analyze and project reasonable changes to the existing housing goals and support the continuation of those goals at their current levels for 2021,” the letter reads. “We applaud FHFA’s decision to re-engage with this rulemaking in a year to establish housing goals for subsequent years.”FHFA’s proposal also requested comment on factors to consider in determining whether a GSE that fails to meet a housing goal must submit a housing plan, including forbearance actions, loss mitigation efforts, loan modifications and other market support activities.
