Northern reveals strong bakery rise

first_imgNorthern Foods has reported strong underlying growth in its bakery division, with revenue up 3.9% for the 26 weeks to 26 September 2009. Brand investment in Fox’s biscuits helped it achieve its highest brand share since 2006, and the firm also announced that a new marketing campaign for its Matthew Walker puddings brand will be launched ahead of the Christmas trading period. According to Northern Foods, new discount lines in sandwiches and salads helped drive revenue in its chilled division, up 8.8%. However, its “rationalisation programme” and the closure of a pizza manufacturing site at Poldys in Ireland last year contributed to the 7.5% drop in revenue within its frozen arm. The firm also relinquished a number of marginal own-label contracts and terminated its Birds Eye co-pack agreement to supply individual frozen pies, thus enabling its McDougall’s brand to compete in this segment.last_img read more

High court pick Gorsuch is harsh critic of assisted suicide

first_imgNBC 18 March 2017Family First Comment: Speaking common sense…“Legalizing the practice, he said, could be a slippery slope. Doctors, insurance companies and the healthiest in society might wind up looking for ways to shorten the lives of the frail and the elderly to preserve resources for those with more promising futures. Doing so, he said, would have a disproportionate impact on the poor, the powerless and minorities who sometimes do not receive the same quality of medical care and pain-control management when they are ill.”Good nominee, Donald!Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch made it clear in a book and other writings what he thinks about assisted suicide and euthanasia: He’s not a fan.His reasoning is not based on religious conviction but rather stems from his investigation of the subject stretching from ancient Greece to modern times.In his 2006 book, “The Future of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia,” Gorsuch derided the idea that a person could take their own life as a way of achieving “death with dignity.”He wrote, “Human life is fundamentally and inherently valuable, and that the intentional taking of human life by private persons is always wrong.”Gorsuch, whose nomination is to be taken up by the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday, favors the power of the states and sticking closely to the texts of laws and Constitution as they were understood when written. But his views on some controversial subjects, such as how widely the Second Amendment applies or whether abortion should be legal, are not known. Assisted suicide is a different matter.Legalizing the practice, he said, could be a slippery slope. Doctors, insurance companies and the healthiest in society might wind up looking for ways to shorten the lives of the frail and the elderly to preserve resources for those with more promising futures. Doing so, he said, would have a disproportionate impact on the poor, the powerless and minorities who sometimes do not receive the same quality of medical care and pain-control management when they are ill.READ MORE: read more

Dodgers swept by Giants with 3-2 loss in 10th inning

first_imgThe sequence of events meant that having depth was more than a luxury Thursday. It was a necessity. The verdict did not arrive until the 10th inning: The Dodgers were tapped out.Justin Maxwell’s single off Dodgers pitcher Juan Nicasio (0-1) drove in Angel Pagan from second base, giving the Giants a 3-2 win and a three-game series sweep.“You’re going to have series where you’re not going to play your best,” Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick said. “It’s not that we even played bad this series. We hit a lot of balls hard this series, just nothing to show for them. That’s part of the game, too. We’re going to have a lot of games where we’re hitting balls and they’re finding gaps — just like that last home series. It just seemed like we could do no wrong that series.”A Dodgers bullpen that had limited opposing hitters to a .200 average when the day began lost its second game in as many days. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Down 2-1, the Giants loaded the bases against Joel Peralta in the eighth inning, scored a run against Pedro Baez to tie the game in the ninth, then won the game against Nicasio in the 10th.Nicasio had allowed a leadoff single to Pagan, who then stole second base. Brandon Belt was intentionally walked on a 3-2 count. Maxwell lined Nicasio’s second pitch into left field, prompting the Giants to spill out of the third-base dugout.It was quite a turnaround for a team that began the series with a 4-10 record, six games behind the Dodgers barely two weeks into the season.“Those guys have won three championships in the last five years,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said of the Giants. “I don’t think they need us to give ‘em life.”Guerrero (2 for 3) hit a solo home run in the second inning off Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong. It was his fourth home run of the season and second in as many days.Adrian Gonzalez hit a solo home run in the third inning, his sixth of the season and his first since the Dodgers’ opening series. That gave the Dodgers a lead that held up until the ninth inning.For five innings, Bolsinger faced just three batters above the minimum, helped in part by a pair of double-play groundouts. The right-hander never broke 90 mph on the radar gun, but his curveball resulted in four of his five strikeouts. The other strikeout was a cut fastball that froze Buster Posey with two runners on base in the sixth inning.“I know their record doesn’t show it but they’re a really good team,” Bolsinger said. “Right now it looks like they’re getting hot at the right time. So you kind of put that in perspective in your head. I faced them before last year. Some of those guys, I knew how to pitch to them. It was just fun. It’s hard not to have fun in that environment.”Bolsinger pitched 5 2/3 innings — nearly as long as Kershaw the day before — and did not allow a run until his final pitch. He walked two and struck out five.Chris Hatcher (one-third of an inning), Yimi Garcia (one inning), J.P. Howell (two-thirds) and Joel Peralta (one-third) did not allow a run. Kendrick kept Peralta’s record clean with a spectacular catch diving up the middle to end the eighth inning.With the Dodgers leading 2-1 in the ninth, Baez squandered his first career save opportunity. Casey McGehee led off with an opposite-field single. The next batter, Brandon Crawford, drove in the game-tying run by smashing a triple to deep right-center field.But Baez came back to strike out pinch hitter Gregor Blanco, then retire Nori Aoki on a pop-up to shortstop Jimmy Rollins in shallow left field. Joe Panik flew out to deep left field to end the inning, but only after catcher Yasmani Grandal blocked a 98-mph Baez fastball in the dirt.“Young guys are going to make mistakes,” Grandal said. “They’re going to learn from it. (Baez) made a mistake and he learned from it there. After that it was lights out.”The Dodgers squandered a bases-loaded situation of their own in the top of the 10th inning, when Gonzalez struck out swinging to end a seven-pitch at-bat against Santiago Casilla.The San Diego Padres will host the Dodgers the next three days. A loss to the Colorado Rockies on Thursday left the Padres (10-7) and Dodgers (9-6) in a virtual tie for first place in the National League West.center_img SAN FRANCISCO >> There are limits to statistics in baseball. Batting averages, ERAs and won-loss records are not compiled in a vacuum. The statistics are compiled in sequences and situations that vary far more than a gray sheet of numbers would ever let on.So when the Dodgers boast about their depth, it’s convenient to point to the gaudy stats next to names like Alex Guerrero, Scott Van Slyke, Justin Turner and Andre Ethier, none of whom started on Opening Day.It might be more useful to point to a game like Thursday against the San Francisco Giants. The Dodgers had already lost a game started by reigning MVP Clayton Kershaw and another by Brett Anderson. Yasiel Puig was back in the lineup, free of pain in his hamstring. The roster was mostly healthy.Yet the Dodgers were on the verge of getting swept at AT&T Park. They entrusted the start to a rookie pitcher, Mike Bolsinger. Turner and Guerrero were both in the starting lineup for the first time this season. A 27-year-old making his 27th career appearance was asked to record his first career save.last_img read more

Breaking down the NBA playoff race as it winds down

first_imgThe Warriors have lost twice by at least 33 points already this month, though in fairness they sat Klay Thompson in one of those games and Stephen Curry in the other.At least they know they’re going to the postseason. Not everyone has had that ability to exhale yet.San Antonio still hasn’t clinched a 22nd consecutive playoff spot, which would tie Philadelphia (1950-71, some of that as the Syracuse Nationals) for the league record, though the Spurs are well on their way.“That’s a good sign that they’re figuring it out,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.Charlotte’s Tony Parker’s quest for an 18th straight playoff appearance is in trouble.

Memphis’ Omri Casspi has now played in 588 career games for seven different franchises, zero of them in the playoffs, and that won’t change this year in what is now the fourth-longest playoff drought by any player in NBA history. And Golden State’s DeMarcus Cousins — finally — should play in a playoff game, barring injury between now and the second weekend of April.The Warriors are in that place where they’re tuning up for the postseason, but they also want to ensure that they close their time at Oakland’s Oracle Arena the right way before moving into a brand-new Chase Center in San Francisco next season.“Our players and our organization, we’re basically dedicating this season to Oracle and the East Bay and to Oakland,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “We know we’re not moving that far, but we’re moving from this building and we’re moving from this city and that’s not an easy thing for anybody. This season is all about finishing it the right way and doing it for the people in Oakland.”Let’s take a look at where things are:EASTERN CONFERENCEIN: No. 1 Milwaukee, No. 2 Toronto, No. 3 Philadelphia, No. 4 Indiana.The Bucks are in total control of the race for the No. 1 overall seed and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. Really, the two interesting games left on their schedule are Tuesday against Houston (Giannis Antetokounmpo vs. James Harden in the MVP battle will be the dominant narrative there, as if one game will change much) and April 4 at Philadelphia (two teams that just don’t like one another). Toronto’s remaining schedule is the easiest left in the NBA, but the Raptors may have run out of time in their quest to catch the Bucks.ON THE VERGE: Boston. It’s only a matter of time. The Celtics are going to get in.WHAT’S LEFT: Technically, six teams — Detroit, Brooklyn, Miami, Orlando, Charlotte and Washington — for three spots. Washington’s odds are almost nonexistent. The Miami-Orlando game on Tuesday is enormous, especially for the Heat. Brooklyn’s remaining schedule looks incredibly tough, unless the Nets run into some teams who rest stars on those nights. And with two games against Milwaukee in April, that’s possible.OUT: Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, New York.

Dwyane Wade’s career still isn’t guaranteed of going past Miami’s regular-season finale in Brooklyn on April 10.

Lakers at New Orleans: Because we can’t get enough LeBron James vs. Anthony Davis. WESTERN CONFERENCEIN: No. 1 Golden State, No. 2 Denver, No. 3 Houston.The race for No. 1 in the West is obviously important for home-court advantage through as many rounds as possible, but there’s something else for the Warriors and Nuggets to consider. If Houston — playoff-bound for a franchise-record-tying seventh straight year — finishes in the No. 3 spot (which is far from guaranteed), then the top-seeded team would avoid seeing James Harden until the West finals. Golden State’s lead over Denver is only a half-game, but the Warriors’ remaining schedule is a ton easier than what Denver has left.ON THE VERGE: Portland, the Los Angeles Clippers, Oklahoma City, Utah, San Antonio. The Spurs are eighth, but they have a very easy schedule left and shouldn’t have much trouble not only clinching, but possibly moving up a spot or two.STILL WITH A TINY CHANCE: Sacramento, which probably can’t lose more than one or two games the rest of the way.OUT: Minnesota, the Los Angeles Lakers, New Orleans, Memphis, Dallas and Phoenix.SLOVENIAN SHOWDOWNLost amid the playoff hubbub is this: They’re expecting hundreds of Slovenian fans in Miami on Thursday.Goran Dragic vs. Luka Doncic for the first time is the reason why.The NBA’s two Slovenian players this season — who teamed up to help their tiny nation win the European championship in 2017 — will finally face off.

The bone graftcan beheld in place with pins, plates, or screws. Stitches are used to close the wound. A splint or cast is usually used to prevent injury or movement while healing.Why the Procedure Is PerformedBone grafts are used to:Fuse joints to prevent movementRepair broken bones (fractures) that have bone lossRepair injured bone that has not healedRisksThe risks for any anesthesia include:Reactions to medicationsProblems breathingThe risks for this surgery include:BleedingInfectionPain at the place on the body where the bone was removedAfter the ProcedureRecovery time depends on the injury or defect being treated and the size of the bone graft.
