A trainee chef was warned by a judge that he could find himself behind bars cooking for prisoners if he does not “cop on.”Barry McBride of Downings kicked a taxi outside the Golden Grill Nightclub in Letterkenny, Co Donegal on September 22nd last.When the taxi-driver alerted Gardai, McBride became abusive and told Gardai to “***k off.” Letterkenny District Court heard McBride had previous convictions for public order, threatening behaviour and urinating in public.Defence solicitor Patsy Gallagher said McBride, 23, was a talented chef who is currently in France doing job interviews but had a slight drink problem.However Judge Paul Kelly said “He is running out of rope. He would want to cop himself on or he will be ‘cheffing’ for guests of the State.”He fined McBride a total of €400.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comTRAINEE CHEF WARNED HE COULD BE COOKING FOR PRISONERS BEHIND BARS! was last modified: November 17th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Barry McBridechefDownings
“Because of my will to win, I never settled on my past successes,” says entrepreneur Linda Ben. “Once I became the best at what I did, I moved on and found new challenges. Since then I have not looked back.”Independent and determined, Play Your Part Ambassador Linda Ben is the founder and owner of project management consultancy Leshaua’s, a mentor to young women, and served as the 2014 national president of Junior Chamber International, a global network of active citizens committed to creating change in their communities.Born and bred in the rural Eastern Cape, Linda was raised by strong and equally independent parents, who she credits for her charisma. This strength came through in her matric year, when she took her future in her own hands.“Not knowing what to do after matric and determined not to spend my life wasting away, I went to a nearby bank in Queenstown and asked to speak to the manager,” she recalls in Kasi News.Wearing her school uniform and extremely nervous, she was not taken seriously by the bank staff. But she persevered.“When the manager arrived I told him: ‘This is my final year of high school. I am determined to make something of my life and would like to work here as soon as I have completed my final exams.’”There was a silence, and then the manager responded. “Well then, go and write your exams. I will see you once they are done.” This, Ben says, was the beginning.After a year at the bank she asked for a transfer and moved to Johannesburg to further her education, “with nothing but a bag full of clothes and a dream to make it,” she says. And make it she did, being named the bank’s Employee of the Month several times in a row.Ben then resigned to manage a new restaurant in trendy Newtown, and was soon profiled in the Sowetan newspaper as one of the youngest black women in the restaurant management business.“For me, that was a highlight on my journey to break stereotypes in male-dominated areas, and I was humbled as I represented all women,” she says.Watch Linda Ben discuss entrepreneurship in the UN Economic and Social Council and International Labour Organisation video conversation “Inspiring and Educating Young Entrepreneurs”. Ben’s contribution begins at the five-minute mark:“My journey did not stop there and I soon came across many more challenges. Because of my will to win, I never settled on my past successes. Once I became the best at what I did, I moved on and found new challenges. Since then I have not looked back.”Today, Ben holds a National Diploma in Management from Wits Technikon and a B-Tech degree in Business Administration from the University of Johannesburg. She majored in management and financial management. Her extensive experience in customer relations and services allows her business, Leshaua’s, to flourish.In addition to running her business, Ben has a passion for developing the youth in her community. She is a long-term member of Junior Chamber International, or JCI, which she has served as 2011 Sandton Local President and 2014 National President.JCI is a community of young active citizens aged between 18 and 40 who share a belief that in order to create lasting positive change, people must empower themselves so they are able to empower other people. Opportunities at JCI include individual growth, business exposure and community development.“My raw experience of Joburg has remained with me and has crafted the woman I am,” Ben says. “Growing up, I did not understand why young girls sought definition from older men, and exchanged their value for lunch or pocket money.“I was taught to work hard and to take ownership of my own success. This is embedded in every decision that I make.“Since then, I have decided to mentor young girls. It helps when one has someone to send a ‘please call me’ to, or someone willing to help you find your first job, because not everyone is lucky enough to have an upbringing like mine.”
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The National Pork Board announces the opening of applications for its pork industry scholarships for the 2017-18 academic year. The eight-year-old program is open to juniors and seniors in college who plan to pursue a career in swine production management or a related field, or will be seeking to attend veterinary or graduate school and major in a discipline with an emphasis on swine. This year, the National Pork Board will award up to 21 scholarships totaling $48,000. The top applicant will receive $5,000, the second-ranked applicant will receive $3,500 and all others will receive $2,000.“We invite any student who meets the scholarship criteria to submit an application,” said Chris Hostetler, animal science director for the Pork Checkoff. “This is an excellent opportunity for the next generation of young people studying in swine-related fields to get some needed recognition among their peers and get some financial assistance.”The guidelines for the scholarship application and the online form can be found at www.pork.org/scholarship. The deadline for application submission is Feb. 17, 2017. Recipients will be notified in April and the related funds will be available for the Fall 2017 semester.“The pork industry is committed to continual improvement in producing safe, wholesome protein,” Hostetler said. “Key to achieving this goal is identifying and developing the next generation of leaders and decision-makers, which is the driving force behind this scholarship program.”Approximately 80% of previous pork industry scholarship winners have pursued advanced degrees as they prepared to serve the industry as veterinarians, nutritionists, reproductive biologists and management consultants.Specific questions about the Pork Industry Scholarship program should be directed to Chris Hostetler at [email protected] or (515) 223-2606.
Tags:#Apple#mobile#Trends#web Related Posts What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … At one time, features like these would just be baked into a product’s release. Virus-scanning torrents? That sounds handy. But instead of making it a feature, it’s an optional “app.” Unconventional App Stores uTorrent isn’t the only unconventional program to get its own app store. Earlier this week, location-based social network Foursquare launched its own so-called app store, the Foursquare App Gallery. Here, 10 or so apps built using Foursquare’s API are featured in categories like mobile, websites, games and more. The idea of Foursquare, which most think of as an “app” itself, having its own “app store” seems a little odd, though. But in this case, Foursquare is actually service on which apps are built. Another app, the Layar Reality Browser, a mobile augmented reality application for Android and iPhone, also just launched its own “app store,” the Layar content store where businesses can create branded AR experiences and sell them through Layar. It’s an app store for an app! App Stores that Replace the Internet And let’s not forget this year’s earlier app store announcements: Intel’s Appup center is an application store designed especially for netbook computers. Yes, nebooks, also known as small computers. Computers which already have access to a big app store known as the “Internet.” The AppUp center, meant to be a white-label offering that PC manufacturers can customize to their own needs, launched at January’s Consumers Electronics Show in Las Vegas where the company also announced several partnerships…including one with Acer. Who then went on to announce their own, secondary Acer app store.…and MoreAnother interesting “app store” launch is the new App Gallery for Google Analytics, the website visitor tracking service. There are over 30 applications found here, including widgets, gadgets and other apps for data collection, business intelligence, content management, email marketing, reporting, auditing and more.Then there’s RackSpace Cloud, a cloud computing and hosting service, who dubbed their affiliate program launched in February “a reverse app store.” Plus, you have the mobile carriers who are also reinserting themselves into the app store business – the insanely profitable “app store” business ($7 billion by year-end!) – whose madness was kick-started by Apple years ago. Verizon, for instance, launched the “Vcast App Store,” where customers can buy mobile apps and pay for them on their next monthly phone bill. Argh! Will it never end?When Does “App Store” Jump the Shark?Don’t get us wrong, we love apps as much as the next guy, but is the term “app store” starting to become over-used? Is the fact that everything these days has an app store a reflection on how we use modern technology? That is, has technology been “dumbed down” for the masses into concepts they can understand? (There’s an app for that!). In some cases, the convenience of a company’s official app store is a good thing – like in Google’s Analytics case, where you can easily find new tools to manage your site. However, in other cases, pointing customers to an “official” app store may be limiting, as with Intel, where the AppUp center directs netbook owners to install apps from a single portal instead of via the Internet. Foursquare, too, is only showing a small sample of apps – only 10 of the 500 that are out there. (The company hopes developers will submit theirs for inclusion on the site). Even Apple keeps people from finding the best apps for their devices by limiting customer’s to the official iTunes App Store when outside their walls are apps that turn your iPhone into a Wi-Fi hotspot, apps that allow you to use more peripherals with your iPad and even apps that let you sync your iPhone with your computer via Wi-Fi. In other words, app stores, while convenient, can limit choice. You often trade diversity for ease-of-access. And that may not be the best bandwagon to jump on. sarah perez Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Have app stores officially jumped the shark? uTorrent, one of the most popular BitTorrent client programs available today with over 50 million monthly users, has launched a new version of their software (codename: Griffin) which now includes extensions, aka “apps.” Yes, that’s right, even uTorrent has an app store now.Apps for TorrentsThe news of Griffin’s release, found here in the uTorrent Labs section of the company’s website, comes by way of Torrent Freak, where they detail some of the apps available at launch. One is a free virus scanner for checking the safety of downloads, for example, another monitors and controls torrent downloads from a browser.

(Updated January 1, 2010) Even though the market for new homes continues to struggle, some builders in the affordable green category continue to edge into the homebuilding spotlight. Among those that seems to have gotten the most attention are Clayton Homes’ i-House, Philadelphia developer Postgreen’s 100K House, and the prefab housing being developed by San Francisco-based Zeta Communities, which opened its own factory in September.But another affordable-green rollout is said to be in the offing, this one by American Sustainability Institute, whose target market includes homebuyers just starting out and seniors and others seeking an energy efficient, relatively compact home. Based in Penns Park, Pennsylvania, American Sustainability – otherwise known as AmeriSus – offers a choice of several designs and says its homes will deliver a combination of insulation and airtightness that will lower energy costs by 70% from those attainable through conventional construction.The company’s managing director, Charlie Kamps, told Ecohome magazine that AmeriSus has teamed up with more than 25 manufacturers to implement its Ready Build kit system. The company currently has commitments from builders to construct 300 homes using AmeriSus designs and materials, and aims to attract enough builders overall to get 12,000 such homes in the ground two years from now, Kamps said.Geographical preferencesAmeriSus has selected sites in 14 states Delaware, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. These states were selected in part because they are rarely exposed to catastrophic weather conditions such as hurricanes and long, fire-prone dry seasons, Kamps said. Formal plans for the first projects, which are set to begin mid-February in Philadelphia, are expected to be unveiled on January 15.Kamps told the magazine that prices will range from $200,000 to $270,000 for homes of 1,200 to 1,800 sq. ft. All buyers, he adds, will have the option of adding renewable-energy systems to their house, at extra cost, to bring its performance to net-zero-energy.There was, however, a point of confusion in the Ecohome story — and, consequently, in GBA’s original citing of that story on Tuesday, when this blog posted: the AmeriSus construction process, Kamps says, does not include manufactured modules or panels. The idea that modular construction was part of the company’s program, and the extraordinary scope and scale of the AmeriSus plan raised questions for at least one regular observer of the modular/affordable-home industry, Gary Fleisher, whose Modular Home Builder blog site tracks the sector. We contacted AmeriSus for more details and a response to some of MHB’s questions, and Kamps replied via email.The homes are “not built in a factory,” Kamps wrote in his email. “They are not an assemblage of pre-manufactured pieces. Our homes are built piece by piece at the jobsite. So it is quite understandable that nobody in the modular home industry knows of us or is working with us.”The kit-construction approachAmeriSus itself won’t be buying landing, pulling permits, or prepping sites. Those tasks are still up to the participating builders. The company’s role is to supply the design options and deliver construction materials and other components to its client builders on each of their job sites in a timely and cost-effective way. Kamps says the company is working with a range of builders, from those who build a few homes a year to those who build hundreds, and has struck agreements with several appliance and component manufacturers (a deal with Whirlpool was announced in November) to help co-market both the homes and the products.Kamps said the thermal resistance of Ready Build exterior walls, constructed with SIPs, will exceed R-25 overall, while the roofing system will deliver R-38. All designs feature vestibules at the front and rear entries to reduce heat loss, an air-conditioning system with a SEER rating of 23, and radiant floor heating. Kamps added that the company has developed a monitoring system for both climate and security that can be controlled by the Apple computer that is included with each house or via an iPhone link to the home computer’s operating system. All houses are designed to accommodate solar panel installations in case homeowners want one them installed during construction or later on.AmeriSus homes are designed to accommodate everything from infill lots to large-scale development configurations. So far, Kamps said, builders are preparing to break ground on AmeriSus projects in four states.
