GEO Mixer from Interbake

first_imgThe GEO Mixer from Interbake (Bury, Lancashire) is designed for cake or pastry products. The structure of the unit is made entirely from stainless steel, while an internal washing system can be programmed to a production schedule. Carbon dioxide gas is piped through the machine, which kills the bacteria. This is then followed by a hot wash process. One design advantage of the GEO Mixer is that, when making sponge cakes or whisking cream, the contents of the mixing bowl are whisked under pressure, reducing mixing times.last_img

Usain Bolt on Carl Lewis tweet: I will never complain about everything

first_imgIT’S been almost 12 years since Carl Lewis publicly questioned the legitimacy of Usain Bolt’s record-setting performances at the Beijing Olympics in a sport “that has the reputation it has right now”.It’s been almost eight years since Bolt said of Lewis, “Nobody really remembers who he is.”It’s been six years since Lewis reportedly said, “He needs to back up now and maybe respect me a little bit more.”More recently, Lewis tweeted on May 4, “It’s time we have an honest conversation about the future of our sport. The present financial model is unsustainable.The global pandemic has changed the future of sport forever. We need to discuss the federations and the number of athletes competing.” The tweet was followed by a link to a Financial Times article on the financial impact of a delayed Tokyo Olympics on World Athletics.In a Gazzetta dello Sport interview published Friday, Bolt was asked to comment on the first sentence of Lewis’ tweet, noting Lewis has often questioned aspects of today’s track and field.Bolt, in response, said that in retirement he will never become one who complains about everything and makes comparisons with the past, according to a Google Translated version of the Q&A. All sports must evolve with the changing times.Bolt has expressed opinions on sprinting since his 2017 retirement – notably, on the dearth of young, male Jamaican prospects.“I’ve walked away from the sport, and no one is there to pick it up, pick up the pieces, keep the level,” Bolt said last summer. “It’s embarrassing for the country.Every time I see people, they say come back. We need you. But you have so much talent in Jamaica.”“I don’t think it is going to get any better because I think these youngsters are a little bit spoiled,” Bolt added then, according to Reuters.(NBC Sports)last_img read more

End to Victor Moses’ Eight Years Adventure at Chelsea Imminent

first_imgVictor Moses Chelsea have finalized plans to offload one of their longest-serving players, Victor Moses in the summer transfer window.According to Sky Sports, the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner is one of the Blues first team stars tipped for the exit door, the others being Kepa Arrizabalaga, Jorginho, Antonio Rudiger, Emerson, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater, Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen and Michy Batshuayi.Ahead of next season, Chelsea have bolstered their squad with the signings of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech from RB Leipzig and Ajax Amsterdam respectively and they have to cash in on the aforementioned players before they can buy. August 24th, 2020 will make it eight years since Moses joined Chelsea from Wigan Athletic and he has entered the final twelve months of his contract with the Stamford Bridge outfit.Apart from his debut season and during Antonio Conte’s two-year spell in charge of Chelsea, the Nigerian has found playing opportunities hard to come by, leading to loan moves to Liverpool, Stoke City, West Ham, Fenerbahce and most recently Inter Milan.There was a purchase clause inserted into the deal taking Moses to Inter Milan in the January transfer window, but the Serie A giants have no obligation to buy him permanently.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Illinois stuns No. 6 Wisconsin 24-23 on last-second FG

first_img 10 months ago Chile’s president rolls back subway fare hike amid protests Written By Associated Press Television News COMMENT Last Updated: 20th October, 2019 19:37 IST Illinois Stuns No. 6 Wisconsin 24-23 On Last-second FG The plan was for Wisconsin to roll into a showdown with Ohio State next week unbeaten, with a defense putting up historic numbers and a Heisman Trophy contender at running back. 10 months ago Alabama’s Tagovailoa leaves game with ankle injury 10 months ago Air Asia launches Agartala-Kolkata flight service SUBSCRIBE TO US LIVE TV First Published: 20th October, 2019 19:37 IST FOLLOW US WE RECOMMEND 10 months ago Altuve’s HR in 9th sends Astros to World Series WATCH US LIVE The plan was for Wisconsin to roll into a showdown with Ohio State next week unbeaten, with a defense putting up historic numbers and a Heisman Trophy contender at running back. Illinois had other plans. James McCourt kicked a 39-yard field as time expired and the Illini pulled off the biggest upset of the college football season, knocking off No. 6 Wisconsin 24-23 on Saturday.“Our program, we needed to get a signature win. I was just hoping today was the day, and the day came,” said Illini coach Lovie Smith, the former Chicago Bears coach who entered the game 11-31 overall and 4-26 in the Big Ten since taking over Illinois in 2016.“Against the No. 6 team in the country, we played them toe-to-toe,” Smith said. “We saw so much fight. We learned an awful lot about ourselves. We’re pumped up. One of the best wins we can possibly have at this stage in our program.”Tony Adams picked off a pass by Jack Coan for the Illini (3-4, 1-3 Big Ten), who were 30 ½-point underdogs, at midfield with 2:33 remaining that set up the winning drive.Dre Brown’s tackle-breaking 13-yard run got Illinois (3-4, 1-3) to the Wisconsin 25 with 34 seconds left and then the Illini set up McCourt to attempt a winner. The junior kicker was down the middle with the field goal to give Smith the most significant victory for Illinois in years.“No matter if it’s an extra point or a game-winner you kind of have to take the approach that every kick is the same because if you take a different approach you might get thrown off or something might be a little different,” said McCourt, who missed a 40-yard attempt in the first quarter.Fans rushed the field when it was over and “Jump Around” — a signature song at Wisconsin’s Camp Randall Stadium — blared through the speakers at Memorial Stadium. “It was amazing,” Adams said. “It was an amazing feeling.”After the first six weeks of the college football season produced few surprises at the top of the rankings, there have now been major upsets in consecutive weeks. Last week it was then-No. 3 Georgia losing at home to South Carolina in double overtime. Wisconsin becomes the second-highest ranked team to lose to an unranked foe this season. This was even more stunning.The Badgers had not trailed this season, allowing only 29 points with four shutouts in six games. Illinois lost to Eastern Michigan earlier this season and has not even been bowl eligible since 2014. Instead, the Badgers (6-1, 4-1) blew a nine-point lead in the final 9:46 of the fourth quarter on Saturday.Illinois beat a ranked team for the first time since 2011 and knocked off a ranked Big Ten team for the first time since 2007 when the Illini beat No. 1 Ohio State in November on their way to a Rose Bowl appearance. The last time Illinois beat a ranked Big Ten team at home was October 2007, a 31-26 victory against No. 5 Wisconsin.Heisman contender Jonathan Taylor rushed 28 times for 132 yards and one touchdown for Wisconsin, but he also lost a fumble in Illinois territory in the fourth quarter to help fuel the comeback.“We had two drives late in the game that ended in turnovers,” Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst said. “It’s always hard to win on the road, and that made it even harder. We just have to move on and learn from this.”Coan was 24 of 32 passing for 264 yards and a touchdown, but his second turnover of the season came at a crucial time. He sailed a pass on third-and-5 that Adams grabbed to give Illinois a short field against the No. 1 defense in the nation.Illinois had cut Wisconsin’s lead to 20-14 late in the third quarter on a 43-yard touchdown run by Reggie Corbin. Wisconsin had opportunities to pad its lead but settled for a field goal after a first-and-goal from the 3 and then Taylor fumbled at the Illinois 25.After the fumble, the Illini ripped off a 75-yard touchdown drive, capped by Brandon Peters’ 29-yard pass to Josh Imatorbhebhe to make it 23-21 with 5:53 left.Wisconsin: Put aside the College Football Playoff implications. The Badgers’ loss also twists the Big Ten West race, with No. 20 Minnesota, No. 23 Iowa and Wisconsin all yet to play each other.Illinois: The Illini pulled the stunner despite losing top receiver Ricky Smalling (right leg) early in the game and star defensive end Oluwole Betiku (undisclosed injury) early in the second half.

Airbus boost for SA aerospace sector

first_img27 June 2013South African state-owned defence equipment manufacturer Denel has signed a R157-million agreement with Airbus to manufacture tail plane parts for the A400M strategic airlifter.The contract will last eight years, with production beginning in the next few months; the first finished parts will be shipped to Airbus’ manufacturing plant in Stade, Germany in August 2013.It demonstrates the confidence that international manufacturers have in South Africa’s aerospace industry, according to Denel Group chief executive officer Riaz Saloojee.“We have proven ourselves to be a reliable and innovative top tier supplier to one of the most sophisticated aircraft manufacturing programmes in the world,” he said in a statement last week.“Airbus’s decision to place a third major order with Denel shows satisfaction with the quality of our design and manufacturing processes and our ability to deliver on time and within budgets.”The deal includes the manufacturing of vertical beams known as spars, horizontal composite machinings called ribs and a connecting plate at the bottom known as the sword.All of these parts are constructed from carbon fibre composites and covered with a metallic skin and added to the internal tail structure before the plane is assembled.“The vertical tail plane is a flight critical part of an aircraft of the size of the A400M and contributes to its unique ability to land and take off carrying payloads in excess of 35 000 kilograms,” the company said.“The new contract places the company at the core of the global aerospace manufacturing industry,” said Denel Aerostructures CEO Ismail Dockrat.Denel Aerostructures has also just completed a relocation of its operations to one location, which will cut costs and improve efficiency, as well as position the company to take on more manufacturing work.Dockrat said the contract also confirms that Denel is at the forefront of global trends to use composite materials for high-tech manufacturing and is driving the trend in the country.“Denel Aerostructures has made significant investments in a composite facility in which it is able to manufacture products ranging from simple aircraft parts to complex main rotor blades for helicopters,” the company said.“Government, in its Aerospace Sector Development Plan, recognises the immense potential of the composite sector, noting that it will be dominant in aerospace going forward and should be integral to future business planning,” Dockrat said.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Directly Attacking Your Competitor Creates Resistance

first_imgThe weakest choice available when trying to create a compelling reason for your dream client to consider leaving their existing supplier (or partner, as the case may be) is to directly attack your competitor. This approach creates resistance, and you cause your prospective client to defend their existing supplier—and their choice.You can’t win new clients by competitively displacing your competitors without uncovering the problems and challenges that caused them to consider moving their business to you and your company. You have a list of the areas where your competitors struggle, and it is useful to know what your dream client’s hot buttons are likely to be. A direct assault on your competitor creates resistance, not dissatisfaction.You say, “I’ve heard that XYZ is having this problem, that problem, and the other problem. I’m wondering if you are having those problems, too.” You’re hoping they say, “Why, yes, I am having those problems. Where do I sign?” That, however, is not what you hear. Instead, you hear, “No. I am not having those problems.”By recounting your competitor’s many sins, you cause your dream client to defend them from your attack. Who was the person that chose to work with this company you have described as inept? Who is still working with this very same company?You don’t move people to change by causing them to resist and defend their prior decision.The better choice is to speak well of your competitor, speak well of the people who work there, talk about the differences in your models, and share how some of the choices the alternatives in your industry make it difficult for them to produce the results you generate.By speaking well of your competitor, you eliminate the need for your dream client to defend them. When they don’t need to mount a defense, they’re more open to sharing with you what might compel them to change. Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager. Download my free eBook!
