first_img== Sigep challenge ==Club Arti & Mestieri, the organisation behind the Sigep Bread Cup, is calling on UK bakers to enter a team for the competition, held from 23-27 January 2010, in Italy. The team must be composed of four bakers, and the organisation will contribute to travel expenses and accommodation. For more details contact [email protected]== Frozen success ==La Boulangerie, the bread and patisserie division of Brakes, won a number of accolades at the British Frozen Food Federation awards earlier this month. In the Best New Bakery/Pastry Product category, it took gold for its Treacle Toffee Apple Tulip Muffin, silver for its 100% Rye Tin Loaf and bronze for its Artisan Fusette.== Bakery inflation ==Food prices have fallen for the second month in a row, according to Verdict Consulting. Food prices in May were, on average, 0.4% cheaper than in April, although bakery prices were up 1.5% in the same period, due to volatile wheat prices and less discounting in the category.== Vehicle warning ==Drivers of commercial bakery vehicles will need to be careful if they are to avoid roadside fines of up to £200. A graduated fixed penalty scheme, which went ’live’ last month, means Vehicle & Operator Services Agency enforcers can issue penalties for infringements detected in roadside checks.== DSM’s cost-savers ==DSM Food Specialties has launched a dedicated cost-savings website – www.dsm-food-saving4u.com -allowing visitors to access information on DSM’s portfolio of cost-saving solutions.

At Least 18 FARC Guerrillas Killed On Border With Ecuador

first_imgBy Dialogo September 21, 2010 At least eighteen FARC guerrillas died in combat and a subsequent bombardment by government forces in the Colombian municipality of San Miguel (in the southern part of the country, on the border with Ecuador), Defense Minister Rodrigo Rivera announced. “The operation is underway, and the bulletin we can provide as of now is eighteen casualties among the FARC terrorists,” Rivera told the press in Bogotá before traveling to the area of the fighting, located in the jungle department (province) of Putumayo, bordering on Ecuador and Peru. “We’re going there in order to consolidate” the offensive, he emphasized. Police, soldiers, and Colombian Air Force (FAC) planes and helicopters participated in the action, according to other Defense Ministry sources cited by the press. The troops bombarded at least three rebel camps in a jungle area near the San Miguel River, which marks the border between Colombia and Ecuador, military officers said. The events took place Sunday morning in the same region where a commando squad of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) killed eight police officers and wounded four on 10 September, the sources indicated. Rivera and the military commanders did not make an immediate announcement about deaths or injuries among the members of the government forces confronting the rebels from the FARC’s Front 48. The minister traveled to Putumayo accompanied by the director of the National Police, Gen. Oscar Naranjo, and several military commanders, the Defense Ministry announced. The authorities are investigating whether the dead rebels include two Front 48 commanders accused of drug trafficking and of supplying arms and explosives to around seven hundred insurgents who operate on Colombia’s border with Ecuador, according to ministry sources. The events at San Miguel took place a day after Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos announced the relaunching of the country’s “democratic security” policy, following attacks attributed to the FARC and the National Liberation Army (ELN) that have left at least forty police officers and military personnel dead this month in Putumayo and other regions. The new policy will also include strategies to check the violence committed by drug traffickers, gang members, demobilized paramilitaries, and other criminals in the cities, according to other administration sources.last_img read more

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Consumers now have more choices than ever when it comes to making payments.

In fact, a recent CardTronics survey found cash to be the preferred payment method in a variety of remittance situations. Among those surveyed, cash was the first choice for:Reimbursing someone —78 percentBuying groceries —52 percentPurchases at convenience stores —63 percentDining out —53 percentTipping —78 percentInterestingly, it’s not just older generations paying with cash. Millennials reported the strongest increase in cash usage (over a 12-month period) than any other demographic. Fifty-seven percent of Millennials said they used a wider array of payment methods over the past year than ever before. However, 45 percent also reported they are more likely to pay with cash now than they were a few years ago. continue reading »last_img read more

Focus on life moments and life stages

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » Todd Clark addresses attendees during CO-OP Think20 Virtual. (CUNA photo)center_img The uncertainty surrounding daily life during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic shows that how credit unions address members’ day-to-day needs is  just as—or more—important than the products and services they offer to assist with major life moments.“How do you think about the member’s life journey?” says Todd Clark, president/CEO of CO-OP Financial Services, a CUNA associate business member at the elite level. “We tend to only think of certain milestones, but between those milestones there are many moments where we can engage with members. Credit unions must capture the everyday engagement.”During CO-OP Think20 Virtual, Clark spoke about the need to build relationships with members that focus not only on moments associated with life stages—such as mortgages, vehicle loans, or student loans—but also those moments associated with a member’s lifestyle—the everyday moments where members need their financial institution.During COVID-19, Clark says credit unions have seen declines in traditional loans—vehicle loans, mortgages, student loans—as members opt to save  instead of borrowing. At the same time, some members have more immediate needs, such as finding emergency sources of funds to meet basic needs due to loss of income from the pandemic.last_img read more
