RHM-owned British Bakeries is nearing the end of a two-week review of production at its Newcastle bakery, which produces Hovis and Mother’s Pride bread.The Westerhope bakery’s 250 staff have been told the company is looking at shifting production to its other bakeries in the south, to reduce supply chain costs. They have been told that redundancies may be made.A spokesman said: “RHM regularly reviews its manufacturing capacity and supply chain and, as part of that review, is assessing production at its Newcastle bakery. RHM is liaising with trade union officials and will keep all parties informed.”
A new guide to help small bakeries reduce surplus and waste has been published by The Real Bread Campaign.Called No Loaf Lost, it is designed to encourage small, independent bakeries to reduce the number of surplus loaves they produce. The guide is divided into five sections to help bakers monitor their surplus and make and implement a reduction plan:• Reasons to slice surplus• Identifying when, where and why surplus arises• Ways to minimise mismatches between production and sales• Involving and communicating with customers and staff• What to do with any surplus that is still producedThe guide includes insights from bakery owners and food waste reduction experts, and is designed for each bakery owner to select the elements that could work for their business.The Real Bread Campaign said it produced the guide after finding it difficult to get advice dedicated to helping small bakeries reduce the surplus they create.The Real Bread Campaign is encouraging bakers to download the guide from its website and make the following No Loaf Lost pledge:Publically state its commitment and promote it to customersAppoint a champion responsible for loaf surplus and waste reductionMeasure the weight and retail value of loaf surplus and wasteWrite and implement an action plan with targets to reduce loaf surplus and wasteAim to redistribute or repurpose 100% of any surplus that remainsTrain staff according to the planReport results to the Real Bread Campaign every six months, reviewing and (if necessary) revising the planHelp to influence wider progress on loaf surplus and waste reduction.The Real Bread Campaign has created No Loaf Lost in its role as a Courtauld 2025 partner. The Courtauld 2025 agreement is designed ‘to cut the resource needed to provide food and drink by a fifth in ten years’ from 2015 to 2025, which includes a 20% reduction in food and drink waste, a 20% reduction in greenhouse gas intensity and a reduction in impact associated with water use in the supply chain.’
Just saying the word “routine” gives me a trapped, suffocating feeling. I’ve resisted it, opting for a job that requires equal parts travel and desk time, which I can do anywhere I can plug in a laptop and grab a cup of coffee.My son starting kindergarten triggered a whole lot of anxiety, mostly because the schedule required a morning drop off and an afternoon pick-up, massive barriers in a schedule I prided myself for being a wilderness of possibility. I liked the thought of being able to go kayaking or mountain biking any day of the week, for being up for adventure at any time, although rarely did that thought match the realty of my day-to-day life. My workload had kept me so busy that I worked more hours than at an office job.Despite my resistance to routine, the school year rolled around anyway. There was a rigid timeline imposed on our mornings – lunch made, breakfast eaten, dressed, water bottles filled, and son loaded into truck.After the first week of school, I realized that the school day created a rhythm to my day, and even I admitted the power of habits. One of my friends extensively remodeled her house and explained that maintaining a schedule was like framing out the walls in a house. She feared the house would look smaller with walls, but actually knowing where one space ends and another begins provided the boundaries necessary to arrange furniture and consider how to best use space. The same goes for my life. With school in session, I had the hours of eight to three to figure out how to eat well, work out, and accomplish my work. Turns out I’d confused not having a plan with freedom. Actually scheduling my days and weeks allowed me to pursue big dreams like a regular work out schedule and eating foods that fueled me.Doing the same thing at the same time over and over transformed the way I thought. I stopped putting brainpower into motivating myself to go for a run or to prepare healthy food. Indecision became a thing of the past and I just laced up my shoes and dusted off the slow cooker. I felt more centered, gained focus and clarity about how I’d spend the day. Even as I recognized that organizing my life and planning into the available time resulted in fewer meltdowns for my son and fewer last-minute crisis for me, the daily grind felt monotonous. The days merged together, one becoming indistinguishable from the last. I longed to be free exploring the mountains, the rivers, and rainforests, sleeping under a star-filled sky. I wanted to feel unconstructed by time, getting so immersed in flow that time bends, speeds, or stalls. Being fully alive required leaping outside my comfort zone, and so I set about seeking adventures within my daily grind.I relooked at my routine and set aside time with the intention to find the adventure within everyday life. Sometimes it was spending a couple hours in the forest with my son. Sometimes it involved going to a new trailhead to run. Stepping outside of routine, if only a few steps, offered new perspectives. I remind myself to stop worrying about whether the adventure was big enough or exciting enough. Being open to the opportunities and curious about exploring, within the confines of routine has expanded my sense that I’m right where I’m supposed to be, nurturing my adventurous spirit while getting my son to kindergarten.I remind myself of George Elliot’s words. “Adventure is not outside man, it is within.”
Open core systems – systems into which you can integrate, or at least interface, various third-party software packages – have been a thing for decades. And yet, the definition of an open system is … well … still open to interpretation.Every core provider out there will claim to offer an open system. To a certain extent, it’s true, too. With enough brute force and a big enough hammer, you really can jam a square peg into a round hole. Of course, the ill-fitting result won’t necessarily produce the experience your employees or your members deserve.There are a number of larger core processors whose income models are based on selling you core, and then selling you a wide range of ancillary products. These providers are forced to offer open systems. That’s because without an ostensibly open system, they wouldn’t be able to integrate their other products, which are more often than not the result of acquisition rather than true innovation.Typically, to “encourage” your credit union to buy their product, instead of a third-party product that may be better and just as easily integrated, these core providers will charge an exorbitant “integration fee.” In the core processing business, integration fee is shorthand for “we’re going to make this so cost-prohibitive it won’t make financial sense to buy anyone else’s products.” These companies would rather play financial shenanigans than compete on a level playing field.Then there are systems that are open only because their manufacturers have created a layer of middleware to serve as a bridge between their potentially dated technology and the rest of the fintech industry. Naturally, to obtain this middleware, you have to license it from the core provider for a fee. Like the core providers in my earlier scenario, these companies won’t let you choose a third-party product without getting at least a piece of the action.Finally, at the other end of the spectrum are core providers that actually want you to succeed. They understand that each credit union should be able to make its own technology decisions in its own best interests, without being nickeled and dimed into oblivion.Such a provider offers a truly open API and doesn’t charge you anything to access it. What’s more, if you need help integrating a third-party product, they’ll provide that assistance, also without charge. That’s what I call open.How should we define an open system into today’s modern technology world? Consider these three questions:Can you integrate a third-party product without paying an exorbitant integration fee?Can you also do so without licensing expensive middleware?Finally, will your core provider actively support all of your technology decisions without trying to profit from them?If you can answer yes to these three questions, you have a truly open system. 125SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John San Filippo John is the co-founder of OmniChannel Communications, Inc., a company that specializes in B2B marketing to community financial institutions.

The officers reportedly asked for Peter’s camera, but he declined to hand it over and explained that he was a journalist.Suwarjono said one of the police officers asked for the camera’s memory card. Peter again declined but said he would delete the recording.The police then took away Peter’s camera, Suwarjono said, and dragged him away while beating him. “I explained that I was a journalist, but they still grabbed and dragged me. I was dragged and beaten until my hands and temples were bruised,” said Peter.After confiscating the camera, Peter said, the police took away the memory card, which contained footage of students protesting near the horse statue in the National Monument (Monas) area.“They eventually returned my camera, but they took my memory card,” he said.Suwarjono condemned violence against journalists and urged authorities to investigate the case thoroughly.Merahputih.com journalist Ponco Sulaksono, who was also covering the demonstration in the Monas area late on Thursday evening, has reportedly gone missing.The media outlet said in a statement that Ponco had sent reports on the protest to the newsroom before he was apprehended by the police as clashes broke out in the afternoon.The editorial team has asked for information from the Gambir Police, the Central Jakarta Police and the Jakarta Police and has searched a number of hospitals around the Gambir area, but Ponco’s whereabouts remain unknown.The company said several people nearby saw Ponco fall to the ground amid the chaos in Tugu Tani, Central Jakarta, although the information has not been confirmed.The team has reported the case to the Jakarta Legal Aid Institute for the Press (LBH Pers).Some protesters have also reportedly gone missing. They are believed to have been apprehended by security personnel, according to LBH Jakarta.Topics : A journalist was reportedly assaulted by members of the Jakarta Police while covering widespread protests against the recently passed and highly controversial Job Creation Law on Thursday.Peter Rotti, a journalist for Suara.com, was allegedly beaten by the police while covering a protest on Jl. MH. Thamrin in Central Jakarta after he recorded a video of officers allegedly attacking a protester near a bus stop.Suara.com editor in chief Suwarjono said that at about 6 p.m., Peter and his colleague Adit Rianto S., a videographer, were filming a live report on the demonstrations for the outlet’s YouTube channel.
