first_imgIt was a perfect capper to a perfect holiday: Ocean City’s traditional fireworks display drew tens of thousands of spectators.They weren’t disappointed, the show began shortly after 9 p.m. and lasted just over 15 action-packed minutes. The crowd’s “oohs and ahhs” were audible in between the booms and bangs of the fireworks, shot from a barge near 7th Street beach.Folks, many wearing patriotic red white and blue outfits, began staking out spots on the beach as early as 7 p.m., bringing blankets and picnic baskets. Many people also opted to view from the Boardwalk.Photo and Video Credit: Ian CrowleyApproximately two dozen boats were anchored between the barge and third street. A contingent of surfers watched from the water, and still others packed balconies of homes and condo buildings.The fireworks were synched up with patriotic music for the display, which took place under near-perfect weather conditions.Photo and Video Credit: Ian CrowleyDuring the few brief lulls in the show, spectators could see the fireworks going off from the south in Sea Isle City and to the north in Atlantic City. But nowhere did the spirit of the holiday shine brighter than right here in America’s Greatest Family Resort.Photo and Video Credit: Ian CrowleyPhoto and Video Credit: Ian Crowley Photo and Video Credit: Ian Crowleylast_img read more

Tesco fined on foam charge

first_imgTesco has been ordered to pay more than £31,000 after a customer discovered a chunk of insulation foam inside a 400g white in-store bakery baguette. Sam Avery bought the sandwich at a Tesco Metro store in Norwich in 2004. Tesco pleaded guilty at Norwich Magistrates’ Court on Monday to selling food which was not of the substance or quality demanded by the purchaser. It was fined £15,000 and ordered to pay £15,944 costs. Mr Avery was awarded £250 in compensation. The court heard the foam was clearly visible under the surface of the bread and had probably been baked into the bread during production. The court heard Tesco repeatedly declined to be interviewed about the matter and a summons was served in August 2005. Mark Harris, representing Tesco, said: “The sale by this company of products not of the quality demanded is something it tries diligently to avoid and it is profusely sorry when it does occur. A spokeswoman for Tesco told British Baker that the baguette was supplied to Tesco part-baked.last_img read more

Three ways to innovate in a stagnant environment

first_imgHarvard Business School (HBS) Professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter discussed innovation, advanced leadership, and how to make change in an inflexible organization in the HBS podcast series “The Business.” Kanter also told “Business” host Brian Kenny why she has no use for the ‘r-word’: retirement.“Innovation is putting new ideas into use. It’s not necessarily invention. You don’t necessarily have to have it dreamed up by yourself, but it’s putting it into use, it’s making it happen, that’s innovation,” said Kanter in the HBS interview.Three ways to innovate in a stagnant environmentThe Business is a Harvard Business School podcast. Twice a month during the academic year, host Brian Kenny brings listeners a new take on the business world through unexpected stories and conversations with business leaders, entrepreneurs, and faculty members.To read the full transcript of Kanter’s interview, visit “The Business” on Harvard Business School’s website.last_img read more

Weekend Pick: Franklin April Fool’s Trail Days

first_imgYou can tell spring has sprung in the Blue Ridge by the telltale signs. The wildflowers begin their epic journey from sprout to bloom. The rivers run swollen and dirty with snow runoff from high in the mountains. The songbirds trumpet the changing season with songs of love, blah, blah, blah. What really marks the transition from cold dreary winter to warm vibrant spring in this part of the country is all the enthusiastic thru-hikers beginning their 2,000 mile trek on the Appalachian Trail. Most won’t make it of course, but these first few weeks of the hiking season will set the tone for what could be a three to four month endeavor.Whether you admire A.T. thru-hikers or think them foolhardy, you have to respect the desire to accomplish something so vast that takes such a commitment. Thru-hiking the A.T. remains one of the more attainable ‘extreme’ accomplishments of the common man; even if you are not strong enough to climb Denali or Everest, you can still hike the A.T. This is part of the reason there are so many festivals and events in trail towns celebrating the hikers. Virtually all thru-hikers are not pro athletes, but regular Joes who want to test their mettle against the most famous trail in the U.S., if not the world. The bottom line is, they need a little boost from time to time and the trail towns are more than happy to oblige, and you should be too.Given the religious significance of this Sunday (Easter) giving a little back would probably help your Karma – not to mix East and West, but America is a melting pot right? Head for historic Franklin, N.C. this weekend for their annual April Fool’s Trail Days. Franklin will be hopping with entertainment, workshops, exhibits and more. Take some time to hang with some hikers, hear some stories, and lend a hand if you can. Also, swing by the Blue Ridge Outdoors tent, pick up the new issue and say hi to Dusty. He’ll sign you up to win some cool stuff in our raffle.View Larger Maplast_img read more

first_imgApr 29, 2009Dr. Margaret Chan, head of the World Health Organization, today raised the agency’s pandemic alert level to phase 5, one notch below a full-scale influenza pandemic, signaling that it’s time for all countries to prepare. [Margaret Chan’s statement]The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today reported a total of 91 confirmed cases of swine flu in 10 states, with 51 cases in New York City. Besides New York, affected states and case numbers are Arizona, 1; California, 14; Indiana, 1; Kansas, 2; Massachusetts, 2; Michigan, 2; Nevada, 1; Ohio, 1, and Texas, 16. [CDC swine flu page]Fukuda said the WHO knew of 114 confirmed swine flu cases in seven countries as of 5 p.m. Geneva time today. These included 13 in Canada, 64 (with 1 death) in the United States, 26 (with 7 deaths) in Mexico, 2 in Israel, 4 in Spain, 2 in the United Kingdom, and 3 in New Zealand.A 22-month-old boy from Mexico City died in a Houston, Tex., hospital earlier this week, marking the first swine flu death in the United States and the first outside Mexico, the Texas Department of Health Services reported today. The boy’s close contacts have remained healthy, officials said. [TDHS news release]Germany reported three swine flu cases and Austria reported one, according to a Reuters report today. The patients included a Bavarian couple in their 30s, a 22-year-old woman from Hamburg, and a 28-year-old Austrian.New York and Indiana have received their full allotments of influenza antivirals from the Strategic National Stockpile, and all other states will receive theirs by May 3, Dr. Richard Besser, acting CDC director, said in a press briefing held by the US Department of Health and Human Services.A “reference strain” of the swine flu H1N1 virus has been isolated by the CDC and sent to vaccine manufacturers, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said at the HHS briefing, adding that limited pilot lots of vaccine could be available for human trials in “early fall.”The US Food and Drug Administration has organized its swine-flu response into an “incident management” structure of seven teams—vaccine, antivirals, personal protective equipment, blood needs, diagnostic research, shortages, and consumer protection—acting FDA Commissioner Dr. Joshua Sharfstein said at the HHS briefing.Viral geneticist Andrew Rambaut, from the University of Edinburgh, told Wired magazine yesterday that the H1N1 virus detected in the global swine flu outbreak doesn’t have human or avian components, but is instead a reassortment of two pig viruses, North American and Eurasian, which have never been detected in pigs or humans before. Two other experts, and reportedly a document from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), confirmed the findings.Only 3 of 14 US swine flu patients with known travel histories had been in Mexico, the CDC said in an MMWR Dispatch last night. Forty of the 64 confirmed cases were not linked to travel or to another confirmed case. [Apr 28 MMWR Dispatch]Between Apr 19 and 27, federal officials checked 15 sick travelers entering the United States from Mexico and confirmed that 2 of them had swine flu, the CDC said in the MMWR Dispatch. Nine travelers remained in isolation pending further evaluation, and four travelers were released.last_img read more
