That’s what Thérèse Martel read in the booklet when she purchased her new Rio in 2012, hoping for a vehicle that’d require less maintenance due to her long commute.However, when she brought her car in for its first service, reports the CBC, she was told the 12,000-kilometre interval indicated in the owner’s manual didn’t apply to vehicles sold in Quebec.

(April 26, 2018) – Expert panelists including world winemakers, master sommeliers, lead buyers and media joined forces on Tuesday, April 24 for the Global Garnacha Summit. Sponsored by D.O.P. Cariñena, the birthplace of Garnacha in Spain, the first Global Garnacha Summit was held at The CIA at Copia in Napa. The one-day exploration was shared with leading sommeliers, buyers, distributors, educators and journalists, encompassing dozens of regions and a full range of styles and insights from around the globe. A full house attended two dynamic seminars and a walk-around tasting featuring close to 100 bottlings from over 50 points-of-origin. The organizers are planning to release an industry white paper in the coming months, with results to be shared at www.globalgarnachasummit.com.A Stunning Grape, Terroir-Friendly and an Alternative to Pinot NoirThe morning seminar – Garnacha Unveiled – was moderated by Bob Bath, MS and Professor of Wine and Beverage Studies at The Culinary Institute of America. It featured a deep dive into the varietal characteristics of Garnacha/Grenache; how it performs in different regions and terroir around the globe; and how it’s interpreted by renowned producers worldwide. Key insights were shared by a dynamic global panel who spoke to their passion for the variety, as well as their drive to develop the distinctly “terroir-driven” personality of the variety. California panelists Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon revealed his success with Garnacha in California’s long ripening season, following a “jilted relationship” with Pinot Noir, while winemaker Chelsea Franchi of Tablas Creek, a well-known producer in Paso Robles with additional ownership in the Rhône, declared it a “stunning grape to work with!” Boutique winemaker Angela Osborne likes Grenache so much that it’s the only variety she works with in California, traveling between vineyards some 700 miles apart to develop its potential in signature wines such as “A Tribute to Grace.” Spanish Master of Wine Pedro Ballesteros stressed the “generosity” of the variety, a “global traveler” which shares commonality in different regions, but also takes on terroir with gusto, a perspective which was reinforced by tasting with winemakers Emmanuel Kemiji, MS of Clos Pissarra in Priorat and California, and Even Bakke from Clos de Trias in the southern Rhône.Business Potential and Opportunities Take CenterstageThe afternoon panel – Garnacha Rising – was led by Peter Granoff, MS and Owner/Partner of Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant, LP. The discussion delved into strategies for promoting Garnacha wines in addition to current consumption trends. Panelists engaged in a lively exchange with the attendees about strategies for making wine drinkers aware of quality and value-driven Garnacha as a comparable option to Pinot Noir and red blends. Panelists agreed that Garnacha ranks high among food-friendly wines and is a bridge for white wine drinkers looking for medium-bodied, expressive reds. Buyer Stevie Stacionis of wine shop Bay Grape in Oakland, CA echoed a common refrain that Garnacha offers a wide spectrum and range, affording the trade many opportunities to find a consumer match from lighter to more full-bodied styles. The often-outstanding price points and food-friendly character of Garnacha from regions as distinct as Cariñena, Paso Robles, Châteauneuf du Pape, and Barossa was also cited as a point of discovery for by-the-glass programs where it was said to consistently “deliver what Pinot Noir promises.” Overall, there was a consensus that the business opportunity and consumer appeal of Garnacha/Grenache makes this a grape whose time has come, a view summarized by Gilian Handelman of Kendall Jackson Wines with insights on plantings from Australia to California: “The elasticity of Garnacha is laudable.” The key is to lay the groundwork for education now.The walk around food & wine pairing – Garnacha: The Perfect Partner – took place between sessions and featured dishes created exclusively for the event by the Chefs of COPIA, inspired by the signature flavors of Spain, France, and California. To highlight food-friendly character, attendees were able to pair and taste 100% Garnacha and blends from over 50 points-of-origin. The summit concluded with a blind tasting, hosted by the SOMM Foundation. The cash prize awards were provided by Global Garnacha Summit media sponsor, The SOMM Journal. First place for $1000 was given to Jay O’Leary of Jays-Wine-Stop, and second place for $500 went to Susan Meyer of St. Supéry Estate Vineyards & Winery.Details on the next edition of the Global Garnacha Summit, as well as highlights from the inaugural event, will continue to be shared on www.globalgarnachasummit.com, so be sure to check back for the most recent information. Advertisement Twitter ReddIt TAGSGarnacha Email Facebooklast_img read more

PM Opens Upgraded Oak Glade Health Centre

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Approximately 20,000 residents of communities in south western St. Andrew and its environs will now benefit from improved health services with the upgrading and renovation of the Oak Glade Health Centre at a cost of $33.98 million.The upgraded facility, located on Haile Selassie Drive, was officially opened by Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller and Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, during a special ceremony on November 15.The type-three health centre was equipped and retrofitted by the National Health Fund (NHF) and the Culture, Health, Arts, Sports, and Education (CHASE) Fund, while work on the plant was completed by the United States Air Force in 2011.Mrs. Simpson Miller, who is also Member of Parliament for the area, assured that there will be a further expansion of the facility “in very short order”.“Proper health care is not an option, it is an imperative. We should try to take health care to the people in their natural environment, so that they go to the hospital only when it is absolutely necessary,” she stated.The Prime Minister further implored members of the community to protect and take care of the facility. “This is your centre, you have a responsibility to ensure the protection and security of this centre… by doing this, you will be protecting yourself …and the health of your children,” she said.For his part, Dr. Ferguson said the rehabilitation and development of the health centre forms part of the Health Ministry’s emphasis on strengthening the primary health care system, which also speaks to the Government’s strategic priorities for fiscal year 2013/2014.“We have been moving forward with this across the island. So far, we have completed work on over 100 health centres and we are far ahead in the development of the four centres of excellence in primary health care,” he stated.He noted that centres of excellence, one in each region, will become the examples of best practice in primary health care. “In the future, we hope to build similar facilities that will improve access to holistic care in communities across the island,” the Minister said.Dr. Ferguson also expressed gratitude to the United States Air force for the initial work at the facility, as well as the CHASE Fund, South East Regional Health Authority (SERHA), and the NHF for “building on that foundation to produce what we have here today”.Board Chairman, SERHA, Lyttleton Shirley, said that the Oak Glades Health Centre is a first class facility, which will provide community members with quality health care.He commended the work of the Health Ministry as it continues its drive to bolster primary health care services, not only to better serve the needs of the population, but to ease the burden on secondary health care facilities.Mr. Shirley informed that one of SERHA’s main goals is to ensure that all patients, who seek treatment, can do so in an atmosphere that promotes the delivery of quality health care.“Against this background, SERHA will continue to focus on upgrading our infrastructure in order to effectively serve our patients. We have already overhauled 56 of the now 90 health centres, which fall under our jurisdiction, and we hope to continue this drive, which is in keeping with the Ministry’s thrust in respect to primary health care,” he stated.Board Chairman, NHF, Sterling Soares, said the agency continues to play a pivotal role in the improvement of public health facilities, such as hospitals and clinics; as well as the upgrading of vital equipment and bringing health facilities up to acceptable world standards.

Trouble for Free Basics in India and Egypt

first_img Related Kavit Majithia Opposition continues to mount against Facebook’s roll-out of its Free Basics initiative in India, with a number of tech companies reportedly voicing concern over the service, while the social giant has also encountered a hurdle in Egypt.India probeAccording to Reuters, nine tech start-ups, including Alibaba-backed Paytm, wrote to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) urging it to ensure internet access was allowed without differential pricing.“There is no reason to create a digital divide by offering a walled garden of limited services in the name of providing access to the poor,” read a letter seen by the publication.Late last month, TRAI told Facebook’s partner in India, Reliance Communications, to put a halt on its Free Basics roll-out, while asking Facebook for more information about the zero rating initiative.It then released a consultation paper requesting industry feedback on the Free Basics concept, for which it said it received a record number of submissions.However, more than three quarters of the 1.8 million comments submitted via Facebook will be disregarded as they did not adhere to the correct format, said TRAI. Facebook had too been urging users in India to submit feedback via its social media network and through mobile phones.Critics of the service, a product of Facebook’s internet.org initiative, claim it violates principles of net neutrality by offering access to certain web services on mobile devices for free, including Facebook’s social media network.Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has since hit back, telling Economic Times newspaper that “for India to make progress, more than 1 billion people need to be connected to the internet”.“What reason is there for denying people free access to vital services for communication, education, healthcare, employment, farming and women’s rights?”A final policy decision is expected to made by regulators next month.Egypt banAdding to the company’s woes regarding service, Free Basics was also suspended in Egypt late last week after the social media giant failed to renew a permit required by the government.Free Basics launched in Egypt two months ago in collaboration with Etisalat. The suspension is not related to security concerns, according to reports.

Comment / Why millennials overlook a career in logistics – by a millennial

first_imgSomething that has always drawn me to my father’s line of work was watching him travel across the globe. The possibility to experience other cultures and to meet a diverse pool of people through your career is the diamond that shines through the rough, long hours.And although we get the occasional whinge and whine about the stressful nature of the job, you see a man who is truly passionate about his career, and that passion is infectious.And there are plenty of opportunities to work in the sector – which is not true of every industry.Vice president of value-added service for DHL Germany Christiane Beimel said: “Supply chain managers are retiring faster than they can be replaced”; 25 to 33% of supply chain professionals are nearing retirement age.  So it’s crucial to entice the younger generations into the industry.  The question, is how? First and foremost, companies need to educate young people about what logistics really is. To leave the banal label of logistics behind, it is integral to highlight the expansive nature of the field, with its eclectic mix of career paths on offer, ranging from supply chain management to warehouse design, from sales to sailings.  Secondly, as younger generations begin to define themselves as citizens of the world, it is important to highlight the importance of logistics in helping develop a cosmopolitan society. Logistics is one of the key enablers of globalisation, internationally linking the supplies and demands of the entire world.  Logistics facilitates the fusion of cultures through the movement of different products from different nations.  And logistics is about co-operation and collaboration, helping to keep the world in order, rather than solely about financial competition. Young people will be drawn into the industry, wanting to brand themselves as enablers of multiculturalism.  And then there is climate change, a key issue for the young today, and logistics can play a big part.The environment particularly resonates with millennials. With the transport sector accounting for 25% of the total commercial energy consumed worldwide, supply chain managers are integral for instigating fuel-efficient shipping.   Finally, there is new hope for logistics in the post-Covid world, as nations rely on freight forwarders to transport essential products, such as PPE and other medical supplies. The consumer typically overlooks how we get our online orders, but residing in these unprecedented times has caused a shift. Young people are now thinking about how their goods arrive, and are becoming more aware of  it.But companies, you have a job to do. To ensure a steady flow of young applicants into the field, it’s crucial that you educate millennials about what it means to work in logistics, and to ensure that the preconception of the heavy haulier or underpaid warehouse worker can at long last become a remnant of the past. By James Liddell 10/08/2020 James Liddellcenter_img To most millennials, the semantics of ‘logistics’ are riddled with outdated stereotypes of a heavy haulier, or warehouse shelf stackers.The more desirable elements of the industry – of which there are many – are not projected to young people, causing a lack of exposure and knowledge about logistics. Luckily, my own perceptions of logistics are clearer than most of my generation. Although I have not directly worked in the field, I have been exposed to logistics my entire life, as my father works in the freight forwarding industry. This places me in a unique position to offer the perspective of a young person who is external to the trade, while  still understanding what logistics really is.  Having a freight forwarder in the family has revealed far more than the technical aspects of logistics. It has illustrated a lifestyle. Yes, the hours can be gruelling and long, with the workload seemingly relentless at times. And although there sometimes appears to be an imbalance between the amount of time spent in the office and at home, the industry does offer good prospects.last_img read more

Chinese wind company looks at solar

July 3, 2015 pv magazine Finance Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share China‘s largest wind turbine manufacturer is exploring co-location of solar with its planned wind power operations in Australia. John Titchen, MD of Xinjiang Goldwind’s Australian operation told Bloomberg Business yesterday (Thursday) the company was exploring co-location and shared infrastructure opportunities in the wake of Australia’s revised clean energy targets. In May, Australia finally confirmed its revised renewable energy target for 2020, reducing it from 41 TWh to 33 TWh and including natural forest waste wood as a clean energy but removing the uncertainty for developers, particularly with the decision to dispense with a mooted biennial review of the target. “There’s potential for co-location of solar and wind farms and sharing infrastructure,” Goldwind’s Titchen told Bloomberg, “that’s an interesting hybrid opportunity going forward.”Popular content Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.
