E Ink promises thinner lighter higher resolution and color epaper displays

first_imgE Ink is already doing swift business in the growing e-reader market, but just like any technology company, it can’t sit still for fear of being overtaken or made redundant. With that in mind, the company has used IFA 2011 to show us some future products and the latest updates to its displays that are coming to market.E Ink’s biggest success to date has to be the monochrome display found inside the best selling e-reader on the market: the Amazon Kindle. At IFA 2011 E Ink revealed some interesting facts about that monochrome display including how much potential it has for the future.First of all, the displays are made in rolls of up to 1km in length and over a meter wide. Those rolls are then cut to specification, connectors attached to allow integration with a circuit board, before being shipped to partners like Amazon. In other words, E Ink has no trouble producing millions of these displays in short order, showing us why Amazon has been able to meet demand for the Kindle despite its huge popularity.The resolution on the Kindle is SVGA, a mere 800 x 600 pixels and 167dpi. What you may not have known is that Kindle E Ink display is already capable of much higher resolutions, up to 12x SVGA in fact. The bottleneck isn’t the screen tech, but the underlying electronics capable of handling such a high resolution display.Anyone wondering what comes next for the Kindle also got a hint from E Ink as to whet we can expect from the next iteration of the device. E Ink is working with Epson to produce a chip capable of controlling a 300dpi e-paper display. If the Kindle remains a monochrome device, that higher resolution display is sure to feature in the next generation.If Amazon decides to create a Kindle Color instead, E Ink also has that covered with its latest Triton display. Triton uses the exact same monochrome E Ink screen, but overlays it with an RGBW color filter capable of 4,096 colors. That won’t challenge an iPad for color output, but then the Triton display retains the two month battery life, no power use when displaying a static image, and can be viewed easily in direct sunlight. We also can’t see any reason it wouldn’t also work with the forthcoming 300dpi screen.The good news is that Triton display isn’t in development, it’s actually already in mass production and will feature in a number of new e-readers coming to market soon. Unfortunately, E Ink didn’t tell us when or who is producing them.We can also look forward to E Ink’s displays getting thinner, lighter, and a lot more durable (shatterproof). The current generation display is laminated on to a glass substrate which has to be protected. That means devices need to be thicker to offer that protection, and that glass sheet makes them heavier. E Ink has come up with a plastic alternative to the glass which is thinner, lighter, and does not require the same level of protection while also not impacting the quality of the display output. In real terms, the existing E Ink displays are 200 microns thick where as the new ones are only 100 microns.Moving from glass to plastic also means E Ink can put their displays in more products. One of the first examples is credit cards, which can now have a multi-digit display for added security while not being any thicker than a standard card. Of course, this latest gen screen also means we can look forward to thinner, lighter e-readers too, as well as some rather unique uses such as an E Ink watch:E Ink also revealed their sales figures for the past few years purely for e-reader displays. In 2009 they shipped 3 million displays, in 2010 that increased to 10 million. This year they expect it to reach 25-30 million showing there’s certainly a growing market for low-power, highly-visible screens.Check out the video below for a demonstration of the latest E Ink displays as well as a good explanation as to how the E Ink technology works. I think you’ll agree, e-readers have a bright and colorful future ahead of them.via Charbax on YouTubelast_img read more

The newest member of the 3DS family is the Nintendo 2DS

first_imgJust when you finally come to terms with the good ship Nintendo being piloted by insane people, and you’ve decided to just ignore the company and not let them get to you anymore, they go ahead and announce a new iteration of the Nintendo 3Ds: the Nintendo 2DS. It’s a slate-style 3DS that doesn’t fold, and no longer has the titular 3D capability.The 2DS is being touted as an entry-level 3DS. The difference between the 2DS and 3DS is apparent in the naming convention; the handheld will drop the 3D capability. Along with that, the portable dispenses with the clamshell design, and instead opts for one solid slate. This, of course, means you can’t fold it and store it snugly in your pocket.It will be able to play the entire 3DS library — just without that 3D option that you likely already ignore due to the drain it causes on the battery, the precise viewing angle the screen requires for it to not induce nausea, as well as the very noticeable graphical ghosting visible on dark backgrounds. While the inability to fold may end up quite a nuisance, it likely contributed to the handheld’s cheaper price tag.The lack of 3D and hinge, the price, and a mono speaker (the stereo headphone jack is hanging around) are the only real differences between the 2DS and 3DS capabilities. For example, the 2DS — despite not having a 3D-capable screen — can still record 3D images and video.The release of this unit blatantly displays that Nintendo is unhappy with the way the 3DS has fared at retail, and is now addressing one of the handheld’s main faults. The 3D, while a cute novelty, has never worked effortlessly. The 3D viewing angle is too sensitive to use during any kind of commute, it drains the battery, and the ghosting is extremely visible on top of dark backgrounds. Thanks to the 3D slider, the 3D was always an option, rather than forced. However, Nintendo likely decided to remove it because units still weren’t moving at a desired pace, and the price couldn’t be slashed due to the expense of the 3D.The conspiracist might feel that the reason why Nintendo didn’t stick with the clamshell design was not to lower the price, but to leave the 3DS with an attractive feature over the 2DS (assuming the 3D isn’t one). This is likely true.The 2DS will come with a 4GB memory card, and launches on October 12 — the same day as the new Pokémon X and Y — for $129.99 in red or blue color schemes. It will sit alongside the 3DS XL ($199) and the standard 3DS ($169).It’s also worth noting that the ironic title of this post was not our brilliant doing, but something Nintendo actually said.last_img read more

Light rail network proposed for Cork under ambitious new transport strategy

Proposed Light Rail Network for Cork CityIn addition to public transport, the ambitious plans also propose increasing walking and cycling in Cork City. Improvements to cycling routes around the city include proposals to segregate routes along waterfront areas as well as develop a 200 kilometre cycling network. “For Cork to grow sustainably as forecast its street network must facilitate more walking and cycling,” the NTA has said.Its arterial routes must also prioritise the movement of buses, according to the authority.Within the city, streets will have “more of a place function and will require a greater emphasis on liveability, motor traffic restraint and traffic calming.”As a result, new roads will be required in some cases to “unlock housing and commercial development and to support local access in planned growth areas,” the NTA has said. The road improvement portion of the strategy is estimated to cost €1.4 billion. The draft strategy also proposes to restrict heavy goods vehicles in the city centre. NTA CEO Anne Graham has said the ambitious plans “will deliver an accessible, integrated transport network that enables the sustainable growth of the Cork Metropolitan Area as a dynamic, connected, and internationally competitive European city region as envisaged by the National Planning Framework 2040.”“An exciting vision of transport that will encourage more people to use sustainable modes is at the core of this strategy.”The plans will now be put out for a six-week public consultation period, beginning on 5 June at the Imperial Hotel in Cork City.   Tuesday 14 May 2019, 12:43 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL May 14th 2019, 12:43 PM 17,853 Views https://jrnl.ie/4633870 Cork’s proposed new light-rail system on Washington street.

Plea for help to the diaspora

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In an extraordinary move the Athens based children’s welfare organisation The Smile of the Child is making a plea to Greek-Australians for donations to continue its work providing nation-wide services to children in need. Neos Kosmos received a letter this week from The Smile of the Child, calling for help from the diaspora in Australia. The letter explained the struggle thousands of children affected by the economic crisis in Greece, as families face mounting financial strain. Increasing demand for its services are stretching the organisation’s resources, forcing the organisation to plead with the international Greek community for donations of any amount to ensure disadvantaged children in Greece continue to receive the help they need. Costas Yannopoulos, director of The Smile of the Child said he has seen an increase in cases of neglect, abuse, bullying in schools and children coming into Greece as refugees. “Like any family, our priority is to the health of the children. We have support centres that not only help the children but the whole family.” In 2011 alone, The Smile of the Child housed 284 Greek and refugee children in their 11 homes across Greece, supported 4,465 children and their families through their welfare centres and responded to countless emergency calls among the many other services the nation-wide organisation provide, either directly or by supporting other institutions such as hospitals and schools. The director commended the Greek people’s dedication to helping the needy in a time of hardship, if only through 2 euro donations through the organisations natonal hotline. “Every small donation can make a difference,” he said. “In February 2011, we only had 1.5 months financial life left,” he said. “But the public’s response to our cry of anguish was amazing, even in a time of hardship, people are continuing to make donations.” Plans are underway to use donations to open two new children’s homes next year. The new homes, set to house children facing neglect, abuse and poverty, will be located in Aigio and Agrinio. The Smile of the Child’s call for help to Greek communities in Australia and around the world is a mark of the significance of the relationship between Greek people and the diaspora. Greek-Australian community groups such as the Hellenic Democratic Initiative and the Greek Ambassadors group has actively campaigned to raise funds and resources to those in need in Greece. Australian Ambassador to Greece Jenny Bloomfield has also taken an interest in the cause, donating aid as well as help raise the organisation’s profile in Australia. For every euro donated to The Smile of the Child, 10 cents goes towards administrative costs and 90 cents goes towards the organisation’s nation-wide services. For more information on how to donate and to see where donations are going, head to The Smile of the Child’s website: http://www.hamogelo.gr/.last_img read more

Nouvelles découvertes sur laprès Big Bang

first_imgNouvelles découvertes sur l’après Big BangLes premières étoiles de l’Univers, apparues après le Big Bang, n’étaient pas seules. C’est ce qu’a permis de révéler une simulation informatique, indiquent des scientifiques.Les étoiles se forment à partir de nuages de gaz sous pression et de la gravitation à laquelle ils sont soumis. En augmentant en densité, le gaz se réchauffe, la pression augmente et, si elle se poursuit, cette compression donne naissance à une étoile. Ce mécanisme fonctionne particulièrement bien si le gaz contient des composés chimiques comme le carbone ou l’oxygène, indique le Daily Mail.À lire aussiPourquoi l’hélium change-t-il la voix ?L’étude qui vient d’être publiée dans Science Express montre donc un nouvel aspect de l’après Big Bang. En effet, une simulation informatique a été réalisée et a permis de découvrir que, contrairement à ce qui était communément admis jusque-là, les toutes premières étoiles de l’Univers étaient accompagnées de disques de gaz.Le gaz qui est à l’origine de la formation des étoiles tourne et est donc dans l’impossibilité d’être directement accumulé dans l’étoile elle-même. Il forme alors une structure semblable à un disque gazeux. Ce n’est que sous l’influence des frictions internes de gaz que ce disque va devenir instable et se fragmenter en plusieurs éléments.Ainsi, le gaz ne forme pas une étoile centrale mais un groupe d’étoiles. Grâce à cette nouvelle découverte, il deviendrait possible de détecter les véritables toutes premières étoiles de l’Univers. De futures missions spatiale devraient donc être programmées pour partir explorer ces premières explosions datant de l’origine de l’Univers, l’après Big Bang immédiat.Le 9 février 2011 à 09:30 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Larsenic présent dans le riz peut entrainer des lésions génétiques

first_imgL’arsenic présent dans le riz peut entrainer des lésions génétiquesSelon une étude menée en Inde, la présence de niveau élevé d’arsenic dans le riz provoque des lésions d’ordre génétique chez les humains.L’arsenic est un “contaminant courant” qui apparaît de manière naturelle dans l’eau ou en grandes quantités par la pollution humaine. Or, “l’alimentation est la principale source d’exposition à l’arsenic” pour l’homme, indique l’Efsa, l’Autorité européenne de sûreté des aliments. Et cette exposition n’est pas sans problème. C’est du moins ce que vient de démontrer une étude récemment publiée dans la revue Scientific reports.Pour “la première fois, il a été démontré qu’un lien entre la consommation de riz comportant de l’arsenic et des dommages génétiques” existe, déclare le Pr David Polya qui dirige l’équipe de l’université britannique de Manchester. La recherche a été menée avec l’institut indien CSIR-IICB auprès de 417 volontaires de la région indienne du Bengale-occidental. Tous consommaient entre 540 et 600 g de riz par jour. Une fréquence plus élevée de lésions génétiques Les travaux ont consisté à déterminer la concentration en arsenic dans l’urine et la concentration en “micro-noyaux”. Ces derniers sont considérés comme révélateurs de lésions chromosomiques elles-mêmes associées à l’apparition de cancers. Or, les résultats obtenus “justifient les préoccupations croissantes exprimées par l’Efsa et par d’autres sur le niveau adéquat de la réglementation sur l’arsenic dans le riz”, souligne le Pr Polya. En effet, une “corrélations forte” entre la concentration en arsenic du riz consommé et la teneur en arsenic des urines du consommateur a été constatée. De fait, les personnes consommant les riz les plus chargés en arsenic (plus de 200 microgrammes d’arsenic par kg) montraient aussi “une fréquence significativement plus élevées de micro-noyaux”, signes de “lésions génétiques”. Comme l’a ajouté Parvez Haris, de l’université britannique De Montfort à Leicester, “ces résultats ont une implication significative pour les gens qui consomment de grandes quantités de riz”. “Il ne faut pas arrêter de manger du riz” À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Mais l’étude devra être confirmée en étudiant d’autres populations ayant des habitudes alimentaires différentes. Par ailleurs d’autres méthodes dévaluation devront être employées pour “évaluer les effets génotoxiques” de l’arsenic, souligne l’expert cité par l’AFP. D’ailleurs, celui-ci tient également à tempérer ces résultats en précisant qu’”il ne faut pas pour autant arrêter de manger du riz. Une étude que nous avons menée à l’université De Montfort a révélé que certaines variétés de riz parfumé du Bangladesh étaient très pauvres en arsenic”, souligne-t-il. Le problème aujourd’hui est qu’aucune réglementation n’oblige à indiquer sur les paquets de riz sa concentration en arsenic. Si la Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) n’a pas lancé d’alerte, elle recommande en attendant “d’avoir un régime alimentaire varié avec une grande variété de céréales”, selon l’AFP.Le 23 juillet 2013 à 19:20 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Changing what it means to be a foster parent

first_imgLaura Ingham poses with portraits of her kids. (Hillman/KSKA)Slade Martin was in foster care for 14 years. He said it wasn’t easy because people make a lot of negative assumptions about foster kids.“They’re gonna steal, they’re gonna be a bad influence on the younger kids, they’re gonna get pregnant or get someone pregnant. They’re gonna be on drugs. They’re not gonna go to school.”Sometimes he and other kids misbehaved because they felt like they didn’t belong with their foster families or anywhere else, he explained. They couldn’t express themselves through their own clothes, music, or culture.But now, foster parents are trying to change that, so the kids are more successful.Download Audio“And after your done typing it get the colored pencils from Latavia,” Laura Ingham yells up to her daughter. “So you color it.”Ingham gives the homework instructions as she heads to the basement to show off multiple years’ worth of family portraits.“This is my oldest son, D’Angelo,” she says, pointing to a photo of a young man. “And these, these are my boys.”Right now she has six kids, though two have moved into their own apartments.“The best times is when they’re all here cause this house is popping, and I just sit and watch the ‘lalalala’ and the oldest two are so animated.”Ingham knows what it’s like to be in foster homes. She and her older brother spent most of their childhood in them.“I got put with a lot of white families that didn’t know how to take care of black kids,” she reflects. “And so that made it difficult.”She says they bounced from placement to placement because 20 years ago, what was then known as the Division of Family and Youth Services, didn’t value permanency. She shut down. Learned not to attach and not to love.“I was in foster care….. you didn’t really feel much.”Then, 12 years ago, she took in her younger siblings and everything had to change. She had to learn to open up. When her sister left the house, Ingham started taking in teenagers and has up to five kids living with her at a time.Ingham says she and other foster parents are approaching foster care differently than when she was in the system.“They weren’t really trying to incorporate you into what they really had going on. It was actually a temporary thing. And now they’re advocating more for permanency in actual homes. That wasn’t happening back then.”Ingham cares for teenagers who most likely cannot be reunited with their biological families, which is different from younger kids who will likely go back. According to Office of Children’s Services data, the median length of time spent in foster care in Alaska in 2015 was only one and half years.But some ideas for making kids feel less stigmatized apply in all situations. Now foster families are trained to learn about the kids’ cultural backgrounds and cook foods from their homes. They learn about the impacts of trauma, how it can affect a child’s behavior, and how to react to it.Aileen Mcinnis, the director of Alaska Center for Resource Families, which trains foster parents, says foster families may only be together for a short time, but the parents’ attitude can make any interactions impactful.Parents needs to show the children in foster care “that there’s hope in this world, there’s people that love, there’s people that care for each other, and that being in a family doesn’t have to hurt.”Ingham says she builds her family by getting the kids to try new things together, at least once. She remembers dragging her youngest son, Evan, to climb Flattop Mountain in Anchorage.“But he was like, ‘Oh I don’t want to go. I just wanna play basketball.’ It was the summer. But he was the first one up Flattop. He was up there waiting for us and ready to take pictures and selfies and all this crazy stuff.”She glances back at the row of portraits and points to a picture of Evan from when he first arrived at her house and then a new picture from three years later.“You can just look at his face. How his face is changing from when I first got him. There’s a smile, when there was nothing when I first got him.”Ingham says making kids feel like they are part of a family doesn’t always work. Some kids have left her home because they were violent. She’s had fights and holes punched in her walls. She says it’s not easy, and foster parents need patience.But her trick for helping kids heal from trauma and abuse?Love.Fostering our Future is a five-part series.

India rejects critical US religious freedom report

first_imgNew Delhi: Rejecting the latest US State Department report on international religious freedom that outlined alleged incidents of religious tension in India, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Sunday said India is proud of its secular credentials and is committed to tolerance and inclusion. Responding to queries on the report, MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, “India is proud of its secular credentials, its status as the largest democracy and a pluralistic society with a longstanding commitment to tolerance and inclusion.” Also Read – INX Media scam: HC to hear ED plea of Karti’s CA in Dec Advertise With Us Questioning the locus standi of a foreign agency to comment on Indian citizens’ rights, he said, “The Indian Constitution guarantees fundamental rights to all its citizens, including its minority communities. We see no locus standi for a foreign entity to pronounce on the state of our citizens’ constitutionally protected rights.” The report has set off a new spat before a visit by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as it says Hindu groups had used “violence, intimidation, and harassment” against Muslims and low-caste Dalits to force a religion-based national identity. Also Read – Stop sale of ‘deadly’ stuff on Amazon, US lawmakers to Bezos Advertise With Us Pompeo is set to arrive in New Delhi on Tuesday for a trip intended to strengthen ties, but already complicated by spats over trade tariffs, data protection rules, US visas for Indians and buying arms from Russia.

Christians have also been targeted for proselytising since Modi came to power in 2014. Advertise With Us “Despite Indian government statistics indicating that communal violence has increased sharply over the past two years, the Modi administration has not addressed the problem,” the report said. The report consists of chapters by country, grouped into tiers, in which India is categorised in tier 2. It highlights a 12 per cent decline in communal violence compared with the previous year. The controversial revision of the National Register of Citizenship in northeastern state Assam, which could land millions of minorities stateless, also got noticed in the report. The Indian foreign ministry rejected the report, saying there was no right “for a foreign entity/government to pronounce on the state of our citizens’ constitutionally protected rights”. “India is proud of its secular credentials, its status as the largest democracy and a pluralistic society with a long-standing commitment to tolerance and inclusion,” spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in a statement. “The Indian Constitution guarantees fundamental rights to all its citizens, including its minority communities.” The United States has sought to boost ties with India as a counterweight to China, and both US President Donald Trump and Modi have highlighted their good relationship. However, India last week imposed higher import tariffs on 28 US items in retaliation to Washington’s recent withdrawal of trade privileges for New Delhi. Pompeo wants to use his New Delhi trip to lay the ground for a Trump-Modi meeting at the G20 Summit in Osaka this month. It will be their first since Modi’s new landslide election win last month. Pompeo is also to give a speech on the future of the relationship between the two countries.last_img read more

Unearthed Documents Reveal the DaytoDay Life of Mary Queen of Scots

first_imgA recently uncovered stack of 16th century documents sheds fresh light on the six-year rule of Mary, Queen of Scots. Mary is mostly remembered for her tragic romances and her imprisonment by her jealous English cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. She first married her first cousin Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley, who was later found dead in suspicious circumstances — with the finger of blame being pointed at both her and her second husband, James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell, who may have married the queen against her will. Mary, Queen of ScotsThe new Scottish power couple didn’t last long. Catholics didn’t recognize the Protestant wedding ceremony or Bothwell’s divorce from his first wife, and as a Catholic queen unpopular with Scotland’s Protestant lords, Mary desperately needed their support. The pair were forced from the throne and Mary fled south to seek sanctuary with Elizabeth I.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsAs the English queen had not married and had given birth to no heirs, Mary was, in fact, the next in line (she was descended from Elizabeth I’s grandfather, Henry VII, via Henry VIII’s sister Margaret Tudor). Tensions between the two rival queens, as well as the threat of Mary’s involvement in a Catholic plot to overthrow the staunchly Protestant Elizabeth I, resulted in Mary finally being beheaded on February 8, 1587. In the end, she spent 19 years imprisoned in various English castles at the mercy of the Queen of England — over three times as long as Mary’s actual reign as Queen of Scots.Queen Elizabeth at Wanstead HallThis tragic tale, packed with romance and revenge, has been told numerous times across film and television, most recently in the 2019 film Mary Queen of Scots in which the title character was played by Saoirse Ronan. Ronan joined a prestigious club of cinema’s finest, following in the footsteps of two Oscar winners: Katherine Hepburn (in 1936’s Mary of Scotland) and Vanessa Redgrave (in 1971’s Mary, Queen of Scots).This recently uncovered stash of 15 signed and dated handwritten state papers reveals the mundane reality of the queen’s role beyond the dynastic dramas that ultimately led to her demise.They detail new fortifications in Leith which guarded the approach to Edinburgh by the river, the rights of church deacons and tradesmen in the city of Edinburgh, licenses for the selling of meat at the Tolbooth — a crumbling Medieval structure that served varied civil roles — and the making of salt in Newhaven, which was once a village and port just outside of the city.Museum of Edinburgh. Photo by kim traynor CC BY-SA 2.0Two of the papers show watermarks when held up to the light — a flower and a goat. Both of these are common devices in Scottish heraldry, with the goat in particular found on the coats of arms belonging to prominent courtiers.Interestingly, some of the papers date from the time Mary was still resident in France, suggesting that her role in vital matters of state began as soon as she was old enough to play a part. Her father, King James IV, passed away in 1542 and at only six months old, she was Queen of Scots.Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots by François Clouet, c. 1558–1560With Scotland ruled by various regents, Mary spent most of her early life in the French court as part of an alliance between the two countries that was sealed by marriage to the French heir to the throne. Eventually, her husband became King Francis II, making her queen consort, and their reign lasted just over a year until he died from an abscess on his brain. Following his death, the 18-year old Mary returned to Scotland — a country she had not seen since she was five.Related Video: 12 Ye Olde Insults we could use todayThe papers were found in the storeroom of the Museum of Edinburgh, just a few hundred yards from the Palace of Holyroodhouse, which was Mary’s residence. Although they entered the council archives in the 1920s, they were forgotten until they were stumbled upon during conservation work nearly a century on. Curator Vicky Garrington told The Scotsman newspaper: “Together, the documents shed light on a key part of Scotland’s past. We all know the tragic story of Mary Queen of Scots, her eventful life and eventual execution in 1587, but in these documents we see a different side to Mary.Copy of Mary’s effigy. The original, by Cornelius Cure, is in Westminster Abbey. Photo by Kim Traynor CC BY-SA 3.0“Here, she can be seen carefully managing the everyday affairs of Edinburgh, both from France and Scotland. It’s fascinating to think of her reading through these official papers before carefully applying her signature.”Read another story from us: Betrayal upon Betrayal – The Sordid Plot to Overthrow Mary Queen of ScotsThe papers will remain in storage at the Museum of Edinburgh until they can be examined by conservation experts and researched by historians of the early modern period.last_img read more

The production site should be at its best; we will demonstrate a quintessential British soft fruit farm.”Both Carter and Salih Hodzhov, the Farms Director at Chambers, will explain to attendees how the production site has evolved from a very early stage, right back to when Chambers took it over from being an arable farm.“Salih has worked with the farm for many years. He knows everything about the site, the soil and its growing conditions,” Carter says.As well as detailing how the fruit is produced, the hosts will reveal Chambers’ use of rainwater and other sustainable resources.Packing facility at The FruiteryAttendees will then head south to Chambers’ main packing site near Maidstone, where the focus will be on the company’s latest business, The Fruitery, which is packing pots and punnets of ready-to-eat, fresh snacking fruit, primarily berries, for retail and foodservice customers.“Some visitors may have already seen and sampled these berry pots at the trade show the day before [Thursday, June 6], or even eaten them during the breakfast [Thought Leaders Breakfast Panel] on the Wednesday morning,” Carter points out.“We’ll look at the two different areas of low-risk and high-care, we’ll explain the journey we’ve been on and what we’ll do as the business starts to expand, as we have expansion plans built into the building.”Since launching in February, The Fruitery has been undergoing a period of validation that culminated in April when the facility attained BRC accreditation. The facility has started packing commercially for a UK retail customer, as well as a French/European retailer. Another UK supermarket operator is preparing to launch shortly.“All of our retail customers have said that it’s a really nice facility that looks great,” Carter reveals. “We’re feeling quietly confident, and we can’t wait to do more. We still have a massive learning curve ahead but we can use the knowledge and experience within the Chambers team which benefits from multifaceted people with different perspectives.”Where The Fruitery stands out is its ability to receive freshly harvested fruit directly from the field that has been selected for freshness and quality. This enables Chambers to directly supply retailers and foodservice operators an own-label and high-quality product that has a longer shelf-life, local provenance and lower food miles.“Since we’re growing on site across a number of locations and varieties, we can ‘cherry-pick’ what goes through The Fruitery on a day-to-day basis, so we can offer really great prepared berry products,” Carter explains.“This means the consumer is going to get a better-eating soft fruit product, and our retailers or clients can expect good shelf-life. With the latest technologies, we can facilitate a six to seven-day shelf-life, which is really something.”With soft fruit still representing one of the biggest market groups for fresh produce, and the prepared sector continuing to expand, the team at Chambers believes there are additional opportunities to explore in the future.“As the prepared market expands, more customers are looking for convenience and berries is an area in which we can excel,” Carter says. “The foresight that Tim Chambers had many years ago to get to this point is quite inspirational.“At the moment, The Fruitery is relatively tailored in its supply but we can learn and build from that. We have started with our forte, which is our berries, and complementary products. In the future, it may be that we grow bespoke berry varieties for our prepared business. We will add some other products going forward as well.“Right now, The Fruitery is built around our berry offer, and that’s our core point of difference. But we are looking at other projects that could sit alongside and complement The Fruitery, so watch this space!”The LPS19 Production Tour, hosted by Chambers, runs from 7.30am until 3pm on Friday, June 7. There are 15 places available. NZ: Zespri in nationwide sales trials of red kiwif … From the pages of Produce Business UKKent-based soft fruit grower-packer-distributor Chambers is planning a hands-on, interactive and educational Production Tour of the company’s largest owned berry farm and new high-care prepared fruit facility, The Fruitery, as part of the Industry Tours taking place on the final day of The London Produce Show and Conference 2019. PBUK chatted with Rupert Carter, Group Technical Director at Chambers, to find out what’s in store for attendees on Friday, June 7.“Chambers Farms is a long-established, family-owned business based outside of Maidstone in Kent that has been in the Chambers family for three generations,” Carter begins by explaining, adding that the product mix has expanded in the last five years from raspberries, blackberries, currants and rhubarb to include cherries, blueberries and strawberries.“It’s a business that’s been evolving for the last 10 years. It’s certainly one of the newer models of a large-scale grower working with the retailers, and it’s a company that’s looking to the future, having diversified with the establishment of The Fruitery.”To demonstrate the company’s diverse operations, the Production Tour will be two-fold. Firstly, attendees will visit Home Farm located in Sutton at Hone, near Dartford, where members of the senior management team, including owner and managing director Tim Chambers (left), will give a tour of the largest Chambers’ owned farm. Secondly, attendees will head to the company’s headquarters at Oakdene Farm, where they will visit the £2 million prepared fruit division, The Fruitery.“Visitors will see the two different aspects of British fruit farming today,” Carter points out. “We’ll show them a traditional soft fruit production site, as well as what we do with those berries on the prepared side in terms of processing fruit through a high-care facility. Plus we’ll share what we have learned so far since setting up The Fruitery.“This will be useful for any visitors thinking about doing something similar or establishing similar revenue streams, in terms of understanding what you have to consider. Retailers and buyers will find it interesting to visualize how it all fits together as well. It’s a two-way street too. We appreciate feedback, and their comments might help us also.“The tour will show everyone the complexity of the work undertaken by the supply chain before you buy a punnet or a snack pot of berries at a supermarket. Soft fruit is notoriously challenging and fast changing. Visitors will see why it’s not so straightforward.”Overall, Carter says the tour represents a “unique opportunity” for all. “It may not be something that we’ll do every single year, and, potentially, there will be some people in the industry who may not be aware of The Fruitery.”To help visitors truly experience the journey taken by its fruit, Chambers will give attendees the chance to pick some fresh berries to take to The Fruitery, where they will follow all the standard procedures to produce a finished prepared product to take home.“We are organizing some fun activities in the orchards; we’ll get everyone picking berries to take to The Fruitery,” Carter notes. “Visitors will see how fast they can pick fruit compared to our trained pickers. We want to make it as interactive as possible, as that’s how people will get the most out of the tour.”With the British summer weather notoriously unpredictable, Carter advises attendees to dress comfortably, and with sensible footwear. “It’s a farm, it’s commercial and it’s big,” he cautions.Rupert Carter, Chambers’ Group Technical Director, in the fieldProduction siteChambers operates a mixture of owned and long-term leased sites covering 14 different locations across Kent. The production element of the tour will visit one of the company’s most recent sites – a 100-hectare growing area that is planted with raspberries, blackberries and strawberries in their third growing season, and complete with a coldstore and campsite for pickers.“There has been a huge amount of work at this site,” notes Carter. “It’s a newer model of what the company would like to do going forward.”Given the timing of the tour in June, there will be plenty of fruit in season for attendees to see both in the fields and moving through The Fruitery.

But the election analysts made it a different ball game by attributing it to the growth of saffron parties" says Prof PL Dharma who teaches political sociology at the Mangalore University But then coastal Karnataka has always voted for different alliances or gathbandhans by shuffling them on and off when it comes to the state Assembly polls and the General Elections In 2013 the region threw its weight behind a debilitated Congress party in the elections to thestate Assembly But they voted for the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections en masse that followed immediately In other words while the region (Mangaluru Udupi and Chikmagalur) sent 10 Congress representatives to the state Assembly in the 2013 polls BJP’s tally was two while a sole independent made it to the ‘Mantralaya’ Fast forward to the 2014 General Elections when brand Modi swept the polls BJP bagged all the three seats from the region with Congress drawing a blank These diverse trends by backing different political coalitions for the Assembly polls and General Elections have been evident from previous elections as well (Source: Election commission of India website) Though critics of the Sangh Parivar were scared of the ‘imminent’ saffronisation of the coastal region the people proved them wrong yet again by choosing two legislators each from the Janata Dal (Secular) the BJP and the Congress in the neighbouring district of Uttara Kannada during the Assembly elections in 2008 InUdupi however BJP took four out of five seats with Congress winning a lone seat in Karkala "Karnataka missed the Modi wave by less than a year and when it goes to polls in 2018 the BJP hopes and yearns that the Modi wave will be still there and it will be a litmus test for the saffron party on the coast Let us not forget that the coast of Karnataka has been nicknamed as the laboratory of Hindutva and any upsets here will have a telling effect on state politics" former BJP MLA from Puttur K Ram Bhat said The highlight of the 2003 elections was that the Bhatkal constituency a densely Muslim populated area in Uttara Kannada district voted for Shivananda Naik of BJP leaving the political pundits and psephologists who bankheavily on religious profiling of the electorate to forecast the poll verdict in their pre-poll analysis with egg all over on their faces It may also be recalled that in 1996 BJP MLA from Bhatkal Dr U Chittaranjan was shot dead but since then a number of socio-political changes have taken place there as the voters have accepted the fact that no partisan politics will ensure that Bhatkal becomes a safe place to live says Rathnakar Kamath a local political analyst This town known for its traders was once infamous for communal clashes but during the last three to four Assembly elections the region remained peaceful he adds However the swing in favour of BJP has been more pronounced in the Lok Sabha elections In the 2014 elections the coastal areas chose to vote for the BJP giving all the three seats to the saffron party This is partly attributed to the Modi-fication wave that took the nation by storm In the last three elections BJP has swept all the three Lok Sabha seats (Source: Election commission of India website) Therefore in hindsight one could see no paradigm shift in the voting pattern and preferences of political parties and ideology among the coastal Karnataka voters; one could only say that it is a mixed bag Notably the role of fence sitters or the so-called independents has faded fast in both Lok Sabha and state Assembly elections in the region Further regional parties could only make minimal nuisances on the electoral scene and had very little say in thepoll verdict That is why parties like JDS did not grow on the coastal belt but for leaving a few blips on the political radar To the frustration of the saffron brigade the rise of BJP had been slow in the coastal belt of the state while the slide of the Congress party in the popularity chart has been secular The fast fading clout of the Congress in the region was cushioned to a greater extent by the support of Left parties and their allies since they are equally wary of the saffronisation of the region This is more so because the Islamic outfits usually aligned with the Left parties and the Social Democratic Party of India spares no efforts to keep this delicate balance of power between the ‘secular’ and ‘fundamentalist’ parties It is not that the BJP was sitting pretty on the coastal belt of Karnataka; it too had its share of political troubles Halady Srinivas Shetty a BJP MLA has had a humiliating experience when he was called to take oath as a minister in the last cabinet reshuffle by the previous BJP government that ran the state during 2008-13 He was called to the Raj Bhavan but was denied entry which enraged his followers And he left BJP in a huff and decided to contest the elections as an independent candidate in 2013 and won Mangaluru MP Nalin Kumar Kateel got away with a rap on the knuckles by his party for making a provocative statement saying that "Mangaluru would burn if the government arrested RSS strongman Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat" in a speech at Kalladka before a fortnight-long communal flare-up The coastal Kannada is not fully insulated against the caste conflicts from the ‘malnad’ areas The Udupi Chikkamagaluru Lok Sabha constituency was formed after the delimitation of the Lok Sabha constituencies in 2008 There was another constituency with two districts making up for one seat – the Mysore-Kodagu constituency While in Chikkamagalur-Udupi constituency one can see a clear division of voter preference between the Assembly segments the Mysore-Kodagu seat remains relatively tranquil So it seems that coastal Karnataka still remains elusive for the khaki shorts and saffron flags Part 1:Mangaluru’s present identity as hotbed of communal tension sharply contrasts with its peaceful past Part 2:Mangaluru sees uptick in vigilante violence as politically-backed Hindutva fringe groups multiply The author is a Mangaluru based freelance writer and a member of101Reporterscom a pan-India network of grassroots reporters PRAGUE (Reuters) – Thousands of Czechs protested against Andrej Babis in dozens of cities on Tuesday a day before his second appointment as prime minister and his second attempt at forming a government Babis and his ANO party won the most seats in parliament in elections last October but lacked a majority He has run a caretaker administration since their minority government lost a no-confidence vote in January Other parties shunned ANO because Babis faced criminal charges dating back a decade He denies the charges President Milos Zeman is due to appoint Babis prime minister again on Wednesday after Babis reached an agreement on a coalition with Social Democratic party (CSSD) The agreement is now subject to a referendum among CSSD members The result is expected in mid-June The two parties will only have 93 votes combined in the 200-seat lower chamber of parliament so they will still need to lean on the Communist party for support The prospect of Communists who ran Czechoslovakia’s Soviet-era dictatorship before 1989 getting a share of power again sparked Tuesday’s protests The largest crowd assembled in Wenceslas Square in downtown Prague where people listened to speeches and songs criticising and mocking Babis over his past as a Communist party member "I don’t care about politics at all really but now I feel that it is necessary for the future of my children to go to the streets" Vaclav Bozdech 56 told Reuters at the protest in Prague (Reporting by Jiri Skacel writing by Robert Muller editing by Larry King) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed If this can be taken as a trend,” According to journalist Gail Sheehy,上海千花网NR, Mounting evidence has indicated that the scheme involved senior government officials.
