Three new mixes from Puratos

first_imgBelgian bakery ingredients manufacturer Puratos has added three new products to its bakery range.Tegral Brioche, Tegral Cornbread and O-tentic Tutto Pugliese are “designed with bakers in mind”, according to the company.“The aim of the mixes is to enable both high street and small industrial bakers to personalise the breads they offer their customers, enabling them to simply and easily create multiple on-trend bread varieties.”It said the products are all “high-quality 100% mixes, offering ease, convenience and authenticity for all bakers”.Developed by the Puratos innovation team, the new mixes are a response to increased consumer awareness of, and demand for, global foods with provenance, it said in a statement.Tegral Brioche is an easy-to-use mix that is lower in fat than traditional brioche (thanks to the use of Puraslim), while maintaining a traditional buttery taste, due to the use of Sapore natural sourdoughs.Tegral Cornbread is an American-style cornbread that has been adapted for the UK consumer to create a more bread-like result, offering the sweetness of cornbread with added corn grains for texture.Tutto Pugliese mix is made from a fine version of the hard wheat semolina, obtained by mixing the varieties of wheat cultivated on the highlands of Apulia and Basilicata. The mix offers a combination of certified flour and sourdough that is “remarkably easy to use” according to the company. Puratos UK managing director Julian Lewis said: “At Puratos UK, we love bread, and especially bread with provenance. We love, too, the stories associated with these breads, some of which go back many hundreds of years. Our role is to help bakers of all sizes to recreate these amazing breads, to grow their business by enabling them to enhance their offering to their customers.”Both the Tegral Brioche and Tegral Cornbread mixes are available in 15kg bags, while the Tutto Pugliese mix is available in a 10kg bag.last_img read more

Residence Hall Association hosts annual Trunk or Treat for local community

first_imgAnna Mason Rain brought students inside the Saint Mary’s Student Center to participate in the second annual Trunk or Treating.Trunk or Treat first came about after dorm trick-or-treating was canceled due to security concerns, senior business major and president of RHA Lucia O’Quinn said in an email.O’Quinn said RHA goes through an extensive planning process to ensure Trunk or Treat stays safe and fun.“The Exec Members start planning for it in mid-August (setting the time, date and renting the space in mid-summer/late spring) and the committee continues to work on it as soon as they have their first meeting in mid-September, as it is one of the first official RHA Events function of the semester,” O’Quinn said in the email.Various members of the Saint Mary’s community come together in the planning and execution of Trunk or Treat, she said.The Saint Mary’s administrative team, security department and student volunteers all play crucial roles in the process. The administrative team helps set the date and time, security ensures a safe environment and volunteers “help create a great experience for the children and families of the community,” O’Quinn said.In such a way, she said Trunk or Treat is a way to help raise student morale and offer a new way to give back.“After having the cancellation of the annual dorm trick-or-treating, many students and parents were saddened [by] not having that event to look forward to,” O’Quinn said. “We thought it would be a great way to bring back this event to the community in a safe environment, and to have the students give back to those who have given so much to help with our education and growth.”Other clubs participated in Trunk or Treat or held events to celebrate Halloween on the same day as Trunk or Treat. The Saint Mary’s Affiliates of the American Chemical Society (SMAACS) hosted their annual Halloween Spooktacular, and other clubs such as Belles Against Violence (BAVO), Circle K, Dance Marathon, Love Your Melon and the Little Sibs RHA Committee set up tables for trick-or-treaters.President of Circle K, junior Carina Garza, said Trunk or Treat presents a way to engage with the community.“It’s a chance for us to be able to have a connection,” Garza said. “Not only with faculty and staff in the area, but with the community as a whole and commuter students who can bring their families.”Garza stressed the importance of Trunk or Treat for the Saint Mary’s community as a whole.“Students in general don’t go out into the community unless they do service projects,” Garza said. “This is a chance for kids who don’t normally have the opportunity to come through the Saint Mary’s community and interact in a positive way.”Trunk or Treat is especially important for Circle K, she asserted.“It’s something that’s a collaboration of Saint Mary’s College and the community and that’s what we’re all about,” Garza said.O’Quinn said she has high hopes for the future of Trunk or Treat.“Personally, I would really love to keep this as an ongoing SMC tradition, as it helps foster a greater sense of community within SMC and the rest of the tri-campus collective,” O’Quinn said. “Last year we had an amazing turn-out for it being the first year. We hope to have the same turn-out if not more, and definitely hope to have more students attending. Many more students have volunteered to take part in the festivities this year and we are extremely grateful for that.”Tags: BAVO, Circle K, Dance Marathon, Halloween Spooktacular, Love your Melon, Resident’s Hall Association, SMAACS, trick-or-treating, Trunk or Treat The Saint Mary’s Residence Hall Association (RHA) hosted Trunk or Treat for the second year in a row on Wednesday, which allow local children an opportunity to trick-or-treat at student-decorated cars.The rain kept students confined to tables, where they passed out candy for the families of professors and students.last_img read more

Prosecutors reviewing Aroldis Chapman domestic case

first_imgDAVIE, Fla. — Florida prosecutors are reviewing evidence in a domestic disturbance case involving Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman and his girlfriend.Broward State Attorney’s spokesman Ron Ishoy confirmed in an email Wednesday that prosecutors are examining the possibility of criminal charges. A Davie Police Department report listed the Oct. 30 matter as closed because of insufficient evidence and conflicting accounts.According to a police report, Chapman’s girlfriend, 22-year-old Cristina Barnea, told police he pushed and choked her. Chapman said there was an argument but that he was pushed down by Barnea’s brother, eventually getting a handgun and firing eight shots into a wall and window while locked in his garage.The situation has delayed a proposed trade of Chapman from the Reds to the Los Angeles Dodgers while Major League Baseball investigates.

Linemen lead, Martin brings tears to Hall of Fame

first_imgby Joe KayCANTON, Ohio (AP)—The linemen led the way as they always do, accepting their inductions into the Pro Football Hall of Fame with an abundance of humility. Former Allderdice, Pitt and New York Jets star Curtis Martin finished the evening by supplying plenty of tears.The last of the six players to have their bronze busts unveiled Saturday night, Martin used the big stage to recall his rough life, his mother’s pain and his life-long indifference to the game that allowed him to become famous. “I don’t necessarily have notes, so I’m going to just bare my soul,” Martin cautioned. “So bear with me.”His moving story was the longest of the six and had the audience of 12,100 cheering supportively whenever one of the NFL’s greatest running backs got choked up or lost for words. It was quite a way to end a three-hour induction that celebrated some of the game’s best blockers and tacklers.Linemen Willie Roaf, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy and Dermontti Dawson and 1950s cornerback Jack Butler were the first inducted, accepting their honor with simple thanks and generally short stories.All the way through, the evening had a strong Pittsburgh flavor.Hundreds of Steelers fans sat on the field and in the stands, waving yellow “Terrible Towels” to celebrate the city’s starring role. Two of the new Hall of Famers played for the Steelers — Butler and Dawson. Doleman and Martin played for the University of Pittsburgh after growing up in Pennsylvania.When it was time for Martin, a former Jets star, to finish the evening, Broadway Joe Namath couldn’t help but notice the “J-E-T-S! J-E-T-S!” chants were getting overwhelmed.“I hear a lot of big mouths from Pittsburgh out there,” he told the crowd. “And justifiably—yes, yes!”Martin soon had them dabbing their eyes.He described growing up in a rough neighborhood in Pittsburgh, the son of an alcoholic father who would beat and torture his mother by setting her hair on fire or pressing burning cigarettes to her legs. His mother, Rochella, wiped tears from her eyes as he shared his story, occasionally pausing to collect himself.“My greatest achievement in my life was healing my mother and nurturing my mother,” Martin said.She urged him to play football to stay out of trouble. Even when New England coach Bill Parcells decided to draft him out of Pitt, Martin wasn’t sure he wanted to play. His pastor told him he could use football as a platform to do greater things.“I played for a purpose bigger than the game because I knew that the love for the game just wasn’t in my heart,” Martin said.He followed Parcells to the Jets and finished his career and the fourth-leading rusher in NFL history. Parcells became one of his biggest influences, and Martin chose him for the introduction on Saturday.“He has tremendous compassion for his fellow man,” Parcells said. “He is, I think, the poster child for what the NFL is supposed to be. You come into the league, maximize your abilities, you save your money, you make a smooth transition into society and then you pass all those things on to other people. That’s what this guy has done.”The night that belonged to those who didn’t have it easy.Roaf was inducted first and set the tone. Standing in front of the large crowd in an unfamiliar role—getting attention for something good—he acknowledged feeling out of place.“You know, it’s an offensive lineman,” Roaf said. “I didn’t get singled out in front of a large audience very often, and when I did, it was usually by a referee who was singling me out by saying, ‘Holding No. 77.’“That’s not going to happen today. And it wasn’t too often when I played.”Roaf was one of the greatest players in Saints history, so good that he regularly made the Pro Bowl even though New Orleans had only one winning season in his nine years there.Kennedy had something in common with Roaf. Like the offensive tackle from New Orleans, the defensive tackle from Seattle excelled on bad teams. It was his sustained excellence—not his team’s success—that got him into the hall.Kennedy grew into the game’s top defensive tackle during his 11 seasons with Seattle. Dawson got the Steelers fans revved with his induction speech honoring the town and the franchise. Dawson succeeded Mike Webster as the Steelers’ center, then followed him into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.“Mike was a leader whether he wanted to (be) or not because he led by example, and I tried to emulate everything Mike did,” Dawson said. “Mike had a profound impact on my life and even today, I try to lead by example and be like Mike.”Dawson chose high school football coach Steve Parker to present him. If not for Parker, he might not have played the game. Dawson had a bad experience playing the sport in middle school and quit.Parker met him in a hallway of their high school during his junior year and made him rethink.“I came across this person who I thought was a man,” Parker said. “I said to him, ‘Sir, may I help you?’ He said he goes to school here, and I said, ‘Where have you been all my life?’”Doleman also traces his football roots to Pennsylvania, where he grew up and went to college. He recalled that his father had one rule: Finish what you start.“Thank you for teaching me the importance of finishing what you started,” Doleman said. “And if it’s any indication today, I finished the game I signed up for.”Butler, inducted second, took the most unexpected path to the hall. He didn’t play football in high school, picked the game in college at St. Bonaventure and entered the NFL as an undrafted player in 1951, just another player filling out the Steelers roster.Butler, now 84, thanked his family and friends for being in Canton for his long-awaited moment.“Heck, I’m thankful I’m here,” he said. “I thank you all.” PITTSBURGH PROUD—Curtis Martin poses with a bust of himself during an induction ceremony at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Aug. 4, in Canton, Ohio.
