Jon Jenkins, the boss of tea firm Twinings, has been appointed as the new head of Allied Bakeries, British Baker can reveal.His move from another Associated British Foods’ (ABF) brand comes two months after the departure of Mark Fairweather and follows a delisting of Kingsmill bread at Tesco.British Baker understands he will take up the post on 15 June.Sarah Arrowsmith chief executive, UK Grocery at ABF, said: “Jon set and realised ambitious business goals during his time at Twinings Ovaltine. In addition to the experience he has gained during that role, Jon has a broad knowledge of fast moving consumer goods, having previously worked in commercial roles for Bulmers, Halewood International and Mars. We look forward to welcoming Jon into his new role.”Jenkins has been a success at Twinings, with the company achieving 5% growth in 2014 and the executive making The Grocer power list earlier this year for the first time. He led the brand through a period of premiumisation which has been supported by a £10m campaign.The appointment of Jenkins is at a pivotal time for the wider bread industry with George Weston, chief executive of ABF, describing it as ‘intensely competitive’ at its most recent interim results, where revenue in the first half increased by just 1% to £6.25bn and pre-tax profit fell by 51% to £213m. Allied Bakeries was also a victim of Tesco’s rationalisation earlier this year when Kingsmill sliced bread was delisted by the retailer on 23 March. However, the bakery company has already said the volume has been replaced elsewhere and the supermarket has continued to stock other Kingsmill products including rolls, thins, wraps, crumpets, muffins, pancakes, and waffles.Yesterday The Grocer – a sister title of British Baker – revealed how plummeting retail prices and the consumer shift away from sliced bread has wiped more than £120m off the combined bread sales of the UK’s three biggest brands.Kingsmill has been the biggest victim, with total bread sales of £314m in the year to 28 March 2015 [IRI], down £75m on the preceding 12 months, said The Grocer and Hovis has overtaken Kingsmill to become Britain’s second-biggest selling bread brand despite an £11m drop, while sales of leading brand Warburtons have fallen by £35m.Total UK bread sales are down 8.4% year on year.
In July, the final night of Lisbon, Portugal’s NOS Alive festival came to a close with performances by Pearl Jam, Jack White, Franz Ferdinand, MGMT, and more. To close out their headlining set, Pearl Jam welcomed Jack White to join them for a Neil Young cover. Today, the band has shared pro-shot footage of the memorable collaboration.Pearl Jam hit the festival’s main stage following White’s performance, working through a set of fan-favorite originals and classic rock covers. For their five-song encore, the band went heavy on the cover sing-alongs. John Lennon‘s peace anthem “Imagine” was up first, followed by Pink Floyd‘s “Comfortably Numb”, the second Floyd tune of the evening after their mid-set “Interstellar Overdrive”.Two classic tracks from Pearl Jam’s debut album, Ten, came next with “Porch” and “Alive”, the former of which featured some riffing on Jack White’s iconic “Seven Nation Army”, which was still reverberating in the heads of the crowd and the band alike after having closed out White’s set.Finally, Eddie Vedder sent the crowd into hysterics when he welcomed Jack White himself to join the band for their final song, a cover of Neil Young‘s “Rockin’ In The Free World”, Vedder running around the stage and tossing his tambourines to the crowd as White soloed. You can watch the newly shared pro-shot footage of Pearl Jam’s set-closing Neil Young cover with Jack White below:Pearl Jam ft.

Read Full Story The global cost of diabetes is now 825 billion dollars per year, according to the largest ever study of diabetes levels across the world.The research, which was led by scientists from Imperial College London, and involved Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the World Health Organization, and nearly 500 researchers across the globe, incorporated data from 4.4 million adults in most of the world’s countries. The research team has also created interactive maps and other visuals that show the data for each country, and how they compare to each other.The study, published in the journal The Lancet, compared diabetes levels among adult men and women from 1980 to 2014. Diabetes results in a person being unable to regulate levels of sugar in their blood, and increases the risk of heart and kidney disease, vision loss, and amputations.The team adjusted their results to account for diabetes becoming more common as a person ages and for some countries having older populations. Using age-adjusted figures, they found that in the last 35 years, global diabetes among men has more than doubled—from 4.3% in 1980 to 9% in 2014—after adjusting for the effect of aging. Meanwhile diabetes among women has risen from 5% in 1980 to 7.9% in 2014. This rise translates as 422 million adults in the world with diabetes in 2014—which has nearly quadrupled since 1980 (108 million).The study follows previous work by the same Wellcome Trust-funded team that studied global obesity levels and published in The Lancet last week.
By Brad HaireUniversity of GeorgiaEvery peanut farmer in Georgia has heard of it. And this year, it’s been pretty bad.”Tomato spotted wilt virus has been very severe across the state in peanuts,” said Bob Kemerait, a plant pathologist with the University of Georgia Extension Service.Not SurprisedThe severity of the disease was not unexpected, he said, because it was bad on tobacco and backyard tomatoes this year, too.Some fields are 100 percent infected, he said, even in peanut varieties that are resistant to the virus. But not all fields have been so severely affected.”I don’t know that this is the most severe we’ve ever seen,” Kemerait said. “But it’s certainly the most severe on peanuts in the past few years.”The virus didn’t treat peanuts too badly last year.”I believe many growers began to think we turned the corner on the disease, so to speak,” he said. “Unfortunately, that was not the case.”ManagementSome growers this year became a little lax in managing the disease and didn’t, or were unable to, follow UGA’s TSWV Risk Index as closely as they might. The index provides guidelines to reduce risk for the virus.And TSWV-resistant peanut varieties, like Georgia Green and C99-R, aren’t totally immune to the virus, especially in years with a lot of it around.”Fortunately, newer, more resistant varieties appear to be on the horizon,” Kemerait said.Those ThripsTSWV is spread by small insects known as thrips. Thrips pass the virus to peanut plants when they feed on them. The virus reproduces and spreads throughout entire plants. In many cases, it dwarfs the plants. Yields can be low or nonexistent if the virus attacks plants early in their growth.UGA scientists have proven that the date on which peanuts are planted has a lot to do with the risk of getting the virus.In the past, planting after May 1 was better. However, this year it appears, at least from preliminary observations, that the key was to plant after May 10.”Peanuts planted before that often, but not always, had more severe TSWV,” he said.Research ContinuesPlant pathology research has found an association between the severity of the virus in peanuts and the severity of TSWV in tobacco and rainfall in the spring. Tobacco is planted before peanuts. “Perhaps, the rainfall in the spring affects some aspect of the insects’ life cycle,” Kemerait said.To stay ahead of this disease, UGA breeders, researchers and other specialists keep looking for varieties with improved resistance. They continue to update the TSWV Risk Index to give the growers information on steps they can take to reduce the impact of the disease.”We’re still growing peanuts and will continue to do so,” Kemerait said.Due to recent tropical storms, the harvest of the Georgia peanut crop is slightly behind the five-year average. As of Sept. 22, only 29 percent of the peanuts had been dug, and only 18 percent had been harvested, according to the Georgia Agricultural Statistics Service.
New transmission flexibility boosts renewables in Japan FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Japan transferred excess renewable energy supplies between two of its electricity regions for the first time since a major shakeup of its power sector, the country’s grid monitor told Reuters. The transfer of excess solar power supplies from the island of Kyushu to Japan’s main island of Honshu signals an increase in flexibility in the country’s previously regionalized electricity grid as the market opens up to competition.Kyushu Electric Power Co transferred up to 1.125 gigawatts on Monday to five utilities including Kansai Electric Power and Chubu Electric Power after approval from the grid monitor known as OCCTO, an OCCTO spokeswoman told Reuters.It was the first transfer since OCCTO was set up in 2015 to monitor the country’s electricity grid after the government stripped big power utilities of their regional monopolies and opened the $70 billion retail power market to hundreds of new entrants. The reforms came in the aftermath of Japan’s 2011 Fukushima disaster, when an earthquake and tsunami led to nuclear meltdowns and widespread power outages, and included a government-mandated boost to renewable energy supplies.Solar power has grown particularly fast on the island of Kyushu, where Kyushu Electric operates, because of plentiful sunshine and available land. Monday’s transfer helped Kyushu Electric avoid having to cut third-party supplies of solar energy, a company spokesman said.More: Japan transfers excess renewable power between regions for first time
