Reporting in – Gordon Polson, director,Federation of Bakers

first_imgIt has been a busy 12 months since the industry announced its plans to reduce salt in bread and we are already making significant strides in meeting our targets.The Federation has for many years taken a positive and proactive approach to salt reduction. Salt levels in bread have been reduced by about 25% over the past 20 years and, as recently as 2005, the industry implemented a further 5% reduction. The Federation continues to be committed to the Food Standards Agency’s (FSA) objective of improving the overall make-up of people’s diets while also assessing the impact of any changes on consumer acceptance of the taste of bread and technical feasibility.The Federation entered into talks with the FSA to establish what was an acceptable target for salt reduction by 2010, given our long record of success. These discussions resulted in an agreed target of 0.43g sodium (a sales weighted average, per 100 grammes) by 2010. The Federation will continue to work with the FSA to monitor progress towards this target, in particular the review in 2008.Although we are happy to be working with the FSA on this issue, the reduction of salt in bread has been challenging as salt plays such a critical role in dough formation. It is recognised that any change that may diminish the flavour would be counter-productive to the objective of improving diets as it’s acknowledged that bread plays a major role in a healthy, balanced diet.last_img read more

U.K. Offshore Wind Energy Is Cheaper Now Than Nuclear

first_imgU.K. Offshore Wind Energy Is Cheaper Now Than Nuclear FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Financial Times:The economic case for renewable energy in the UK was given a strong boost on Monday as an auction to provide electricity from offshore wind farms showed sharp falls in subsidy costs.The cost of subsidies to the UK’s offshore wind farms in contracts awarded in the auctions dropped by more than 50 per cent and is now well below the price the government has guaranteed for energy from the planned Hinkley Point nuclear power plant.Three offshore wind projects have won contracts from the government in the latest auction for “less established technologies”, which was also open to schemes such as tidal but excluded solar and onshore wind. The price of electricity guaranteed to offshore wind developers has dropped to as low as £57.50 per megawatt hour — below even the most optimistic forecasts from analysts and a significant fall from the average £117.14/MWh awarded to offshore schemes in the last comparable subsidy auction in 2015. Analysts had expected developers to bid for subsidies in a range of £60-£75/MWh, reflecting a fall in construction costs as the offshore wind industry has matured.Developers such as Dong Energy of Denmark, which is behind one of the three successful schemes, are also installing larger, more powerful turbines. The results of the latest “contract for difference” auction published on Monday were welcomed by supporters of renewable energy, who argue offshore wind and similar technologies can become the foundation of the UK’s energy policy, as the government strives to meet carbon reduction targets. Hugh McNeal, chief executive of RenewableUK, a trade body, said: “We knew today’s results would be impressive, but these are astounding.”More: Renewable energy case boosted by sharp subsidy falllast_img read more

WHO confirms H5N1 cases in Egypt, Vietnam

first_imgDec 28, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – The World Health Organization (WHO) today confirmed three human cases of H5N1 avian influenza in Vietnam and Egypt, one of which was fatal, raising the global H5N1 count to 346 cases with 213 deaths.In Vietnam, a 4-year-old boy from the northern province of Son La died of an H5N1 infection Dec 16, the WHO said. He fell ill Dec 7 and was hospitalized on the 11th. His case was first reported by news services on Dec 26.The boy’s source of exposure is under investigation, the WHO said. His close contacts are being monitored, and all remain healthy so far, the agency reported.Two women in Egypt are being treated for H5N1 disease, the WHO said. One is a 50-year-old from Domiatt governorate who was hospitalized Dec 24 and is in critical condition. The other is a 22-year-old chicken seller from Menofia governorate; she was hospitalized Dec 26 and is in intensive care but recovering, the WHO reported.”Both women had contact with sick and dead poultry prior to illness onset,” the agency said. News services first reported their cases yesterday.Vietnam has had 101 confirmed H5N1 cases with 47 deaths, while Egypt has had 41 confirmed cases, 16 of them fatal.More details on Pakistan casesMeanwhile, a Canadian Press (CP) story published yesterday provided more details about the recent cluster of suspected H5N1 patients in Pakistan, saying that confirmatory testing by the WHO yielded negative findings in several of the cases, along with the single case confirmation announced yesterday.The agency said yesterday that its reference laboratories had confirmed H5N1 in one man in a cluster of several people who had tested positive in Pakistan. He was one of several brothers who had fallen ill after caring for another brother, a veterinarian who had gotten sick after culling infected poultry. Because the man with the confirmed case had not been involved in culling, the confirmation supported the WHO’s previously stated view that limited person-to-person transmission probably occurred in the family.The CP report, based mainly on an interview with the WHO’s Dr. Frederick Hayden, said testing by Pakistan’s National Institute of Health had identified nine possible H5N1 cases. The case-patients included five people in one family, a female doctor who had treated the family, and three poultry cullers unrelated to the family. Another brother in the affected family also had a suspicious illness but died without being tested and therefore was not counted as a possible case.The story said tests by the WHO’s collaborating lab in London and by US Navy Medical Research Unit 3 (NAMRU-3) in Cairo found no H5N1 virus in six of the nine people: the doctor, the three poultry cullers, a brother in the affected family who had never been sick, and a cousin who lived near the affected family and had been sick. One of the three cullers tested positive for a human flu virus, H1N1.Blood test results awaitedBut Hayden said other members of the family besides the 25-year-old man probably had the H5N1 virus and that blood serum tests for antibodies to the virus were being done to clarify the situation, according to the story. He said the negative test results might have been caused by deterioration of the patients’ samples due to repeated freezing and thawing. The results also might have been affected by the timing of the sample-taking and possible use of antiviral drugs by the patients, he said.”Until the follow-up serology (blood testing) is done, we can’t be strong in saying that H5 has been ruled out in any of these people,” Hayden told CP.The story did not specify the WHO confirmatory test results for the veterinarian or another brother who had been hospitalized with H5N1-like illness but survived.The WHO said yesterday that all other members of the affected family, other close contacts of the suspected case-patients, and involved healthcare workers remained healthy and had been released from close medical observation.See also: WHO statement on Egyptian caseshttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2007_12_28a/en/index.htmlWHO statement on case in Vietnamhttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2007_12_28/en/index.htmllast_img read more

Wolf Administration Reminds License, ID Card Holders That Organ Donation Can Save Lives

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Press Release,  Public Health Harrisburg, PA –  With April marking National Donate Life Month, today Governor Tom Wolf reminded driver’s license and identification card holders that they can easily help another person live a fuller, longer life by registering online as an organ donor.“Potential donors considering adding the organ donor designation to their driver’s license or identification card do not have to wait for their renewal notices to take action,” said Governor Tom Wolf.  “There are steps that you can take today to become an organ donor and potentially save a life.”To add the organ donor designation to an existing driver’s license or identification card today, visit www.dmv.pa.gov and select the “Donate Life Pennsylvania” icon. Once the designation is added, individuals will receive a designation card that they must carry with them to affirm organ donor status until they renew or replace their driver’s license or identification card. There is no charge for adding the designation to your driver’s license or identification card.More than 47 percent of driver’s license and identification card holders are registered organ donors – that’s more than 4.7 million Pennsylvanians. Nearly 8,000 Pennsylvanians currently await organ transplants.Driver’s license and identification card holders, as well as registered vehicle owners, can also support organ donation programs by donating $1 to the Robert P. Casey Memorial Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Trust Fund at the time of application and/or renewal. Proceeds from the fund are used to educate and promote awareness of the organ donor program through non-profit organizations like the Center for Organ Recovery and Education and the Gift of Life Donor Program. Pennsylvanians have generously donated nearly $14 million to the fund to date.Additionally, Governor Wolf called on the General Assembly to take up proposed comprehensive reforms to the Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Program (OTDAP) to bring the program in line with best-practices. Pennsylvania was among the first states in the nation to establish an organ donation program in 1994 and the program remains a national example of effective government leadership to promote organ and tissue donation and save lives. However, the law has not been updated in more than twenty-years to keep pace with developments and best practices in the field.Last year, modernization bills were debated in both chambers of the General Assembly, but no agreement on a comprehensive update was reached. The governor looks forward to working with the General Assembly on a bill to modernize OTDAP so that it can continue to effectively serve the more than 8,000 Pennsylvanians waiting for a life-saving organ transplant.“There are some badly-needed changes that almost every other state has adopted that would modernize the donation process, potentially saving many lives,” said Governor Wolf.More information on organ and tissue donation in Pennsylvania can be found at http://www.donatelifepa.org/.

PRO-6 to rule on Jovie’s fate – Gamboa

first_imgGamboa said Pamuspusan had summonedEspenido to explain the police officials’ recent remarks. In a press conference at Camp Delgado– headquarters of the PRO-6 in Iloilo City – Espenido said he does not fearissuing statements despite the gag order. While the PRO-6 already clearedEspenido of any links to illegal drugs, Gamboa said the regional police officeis also looking at the police official’s defiance of an order to stopdiscussing in public his inclusion in the list of “narco cops” pending investigationresults. “You are still in the PNPorganization. You observe what should be observed. Talking indiscriminately isnot observing the proper decorum. Otherwise, kung gusto niya magsalita nang magsalita against thePNP, lumabassiya, umalis siya,” Dela Rosa said in media interview in CampCrame, Quezon City. (With a report fromthe Philippine News Agency/PN) Gamboa added that all intelligencereports on the alleged narco cops are confidential. The PRO-6 director is Police BrigadierGeneral Rene Pamuspusan who pronounced last week, “Wala namantayong reliableinformation or validated report that he is involved in illegal drugs, so he wascleared.” Philippine National Police chief Archie Gamboa. GMA NEWS MANILA – The fate of controversialPolice Lieutenant Colonel Jovie Espenido, the sacked deputy director foroperations of the Bacolod City Police Office, is to be decided by the PoliceRegional Office 6 (PRO-6), according to Philippine National Police (PNP) chief,General Archie Gamboa. It was Gamboa who issued the gagorder. He added: “This is my right. I have mypersonal right, ‘wag ninyo lang akongbawalan or else wala akong magawadin. Demokrasya tayo. Kung kasuhan ako, kung ito na lang ang paraan na ma-dismissako sa serbisyo, then let it be.” “Kungsakaling ano ang mangyari, kasi nagpa-interviewako, I (am ready to) suffer theconsequences,” Espenido told members of the media.center_img He previously gave a “generalinstruction” to policemen included in the drug watch list to remain silent onthe issue. In exchange for the gag order, hepromised that their identities will not be disclosed. In a press conference in Bacolod Cityon Feb. 19, Espenido said his name could have been “planted” on the list. Though vouching for Espenido’sintegrity, Dela Rosa advised him to leave the organization if he cannot keepquiet. According to Gamboa, based on theappreciation of Espenido’s explanation, “should it not convince Pamuspusan,then appropriate pre-charge would be executed. Otherwise, puwede ring hindi.” But Gamboa said Espenido’s commentingabout the drug watch list and PNP’s alleged “failure of intelligence” could notbe considered insubordination yet. “As a matter of procedure, thedirector of PRO-6 already took charge of that process,” said Gamboa at a pressbriefing in Baguio City over the weekend. On Feb. 20, former national police chiefand now senator Ronald Dela Rosa also took offense on Espenido’s recent actionswhich he said were putting the police institution in a bad light. Gamboa earlier vowed to deal withEspenido for granting media interviews despite the gag order he issued for allthe 356 policemen being investigated over alleged links to illegal drugs.last_img read more
