At The Turn Handmade in Halifax leather covers turn heads worldwide

first_imgOTTAWA – For many Canadians, golf is a family affair. For the Bishop brothers, it’s become a family business.The parallels between playing the game and becoming an entrepreneur are not lost on the Nova Scotia-based Bishops, the brains behind startup Dormie Workshop, whose custom-designed, handmade leather headcovers have been taking the golf world by storm since their debut in 2014.Like golf, running a small business can be demanding, time-consuming and downright maddening — but also deeply rewarding, so long as you put in the work, stick together, try to have fun and know when to seize the moment.“The one thing that our family has always done is that whatever we’ve done, we’ve done together,” says Todd Bishop, 46, who runs Dormie Workshop out of a 1,500-square-foot facility in Halifax with his brothers Jeff, 36, and Alex, 34.“Jeff was really the one that had the passion to say, ‘Oh, man, I really like these leather headcovers … that’s how it all came about, because he saw an opportunity.”Serious golfers know a thing or two about the old-school bag-candy revolution of recent years, be it the knitted pom-pom argyles or rugby stripes of Rocket Tour Golf or Jan Craig, or the boutique leather creations of U.S. upstarts like Headgear, Stitch Golf or Cru.If you’ve been to Cabot Links, the 36-hole coastal links sensation on the west coast of Cape Breton Island, you’ve probably seen Dormie Workshop’s handiwork. The white leather putter cover with the simple Cabot logo and tartan liner is the flagship of the fleet.Cabot has come to represent the singular Canadian golf experience, precisely the sort of brand identity to which Dormie Workshop aspired, Bishop says. The fact the company was based in Nova Scotia made the partnership a match made in heaven.“We got this gigantic map of Canada, and got the top 100 courses, and mapped it all out, and we just drew circles,” Bishop recalls. “We had a couple of triple circles around ones that we knew we had to become partners with, and Cabot was Number 1.”So what’s behind all the headcover hoopla?First and foremost, consider camouflage: a premium driver can run $600 and a 3-wood $275, while high-end collectible putters can easily run into the thousands of dollars. Advertising the contents of a golf bag with a manufacturer’s headcovers can be an open invitation to thieves.Then there’s the fact that until recently, those spandex-and-vinyl sock covers could be all but impossible to pull over a massive 460 cubic-centimetre driver head. The vintage boxing-glove style favoured by leatherheads is the hot thing now — perfect timing for the Bishop boys.What’s more, golf is in the throes of a full-blown customizing craze.Drivers have swappable weights and shafts. PGA Tour players stamp their wedges with personal symbols or inspirational sayings. Fans of marquee putter designer Scotty Cameron spend thousands to trick out their flat sticks with special finishes, colour accents and aftermarket grips. Ball manufacturers are boosting sales with custom logos, stamps and play numbers.“Our Dad used to get our last names put on pretty much anything and everything, so it was always in us anyway to kind of just mark your gear,” says Bishop. “It’s an opportunity to reflect who you are and kind of express yourself … something to keep you happy when you’re on the golf course.”That’s not always easy, something Bishop knows from experience: he and Jeff are both PGA professionals who tried their hand at playing the game for a living before their entrepreneurial spirits took over. Today, they coach elite juniors out of Grandview Golf and Country Club in Dartmouth, N.S., when they’re not hunched over sewing machines or elbows-deep in swatches of rawhide.For nerve-racked golfers, a soft swath of leather can be like a fidget spinner on the fairway.“When I’m walking, I’ve always got my hands just resting on those covers,” Bishop says. “That leather feel, that’s basically the oldest technical fabric known to man, and it has been around forever and it never will go away. And there’s a reason: it just feels amazing.”Dormie sets itself apart from an increasingly crowded marketplace, says Bishop, thanks to exceptional craftsmanship, unmatched customer service and a sky’s-the-limit approach to customization that owes a lot to youngest brother Alex’s talents as a graphic designer.Prices for Dormie Workshop’s current offerings vary from about $70 for a basic putter cover to $150 for a driver model that features more elaborate designs and multiple colours and leathers.Custom orders can go up from there, like the guy from California who paid more than US$1,000 for a set of four covers that featured family emblems, sayings and an array of custom artwork.“I would be surprised if his clubs are equal in value,” Bishop chuckles.In their first year of operation, Dormie Workshop moved about 1,500 units. The following year they set up shop at the four-day PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, ground zero for a golf-themed equipment startup. They matched the previous year’s sales in just those four days.This year, Bishop says they’re on pace to sell upwards of 14,000 units. Impressive, yes, he notes. But taxing nonetheless.“There’s been times where I’ve been looking at Jeff at 4:30 in the morning as we’re sitting on sewing machines, going, ‘This is a 911 order. And we have no other way to get this to where it needs to go, other than by you buying a ticket tomorrow morning and flying this sucker out there.’“And that’s what happened.”Which, of course, is ultimately what makes Dormie Workshop a true golf business, and its founders well-suited to use the spirit of the game to navigate even the most daunting challenges: focus on the process, take it one step at a time, and let the outcome take care of itself.“There’s all kinds of different ways this thing could go,” Bishop says, a trill of excitement in his voice.“It’s kind of fun.”last_img read more

Family searches for homeless woman lost amid Fort McMurrays massive evacuation

first_imgUPDATE: Eleanor Cardinal has been found. A relative spoke to a nurse who said she was on a bus that picked up a group from the homeless shelter, according to the Alberta AFN’s regional office. The office said Cardinal suffered a bout of tuberculosis which damaged her lungs and she was suffering from the high levels of smoke. The nurse said Cardinal is currently being monitored and is resting. The Alberta AFN office said Cardinal was in a group among the last to leave Fort McMurray. (Family was searching for Eleanor Cardinal who was in Fort McMurray at the time of the evacuation. Photo courtesy of the family.) Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsThe family of Eleanor Cardinal says they have been unable to track down the 55-year-old homeless woman from Fort McMurray following this week’s evacuation of the city which was triggered by a massive wildfire.Elizabeth Jackson said Friday she has been searching for Cardinal over the last two days, contacting the Red Cross, the RCMP and Cardinal’s support worker for information, but no one has been able to provide any help.“We are thinking of her safety,” said Jackson, in a telephone interview from Saddle Lake Cree Nation. “I am scared for her, she has no vehicle, she has no cell phone. I don’t know who she would associate with.”Jackson said she has given her sister’s name and birthdate to the Red Cross in hopes Cardinal will register as one of the estimated 88,000 evacuees from Fort McMurray.“So for me, it is confusing and kind of frustrating, but I understand. I am sure they are getting many calls, many calls. I still wait. I am still waiting,” said Jackson.It’s believed authorities cleared all citizens from Fort McMurray which was evacuated Tuesday after a massive wildfire, which has since grown to 101,000 hectares, spread into the city, devastating several neighbourhoods and destroying at least 1,600 homes and buildings.Winds are currently pushing the massive blaze southeast of the city, reducing the threat to Fort McMurray, officials said Friday. The wildfire has since been joined by another flare-up triggered by a lightning strike created by fire-induced weather conditions. The wildfire is headed into a more remote forested area, posing no immediate threat to communities or oil and gas facilities in the region, officials said.Jackson said she believes Cardinal would have contacted family by now if she was in Edmonton, one of the cities that is receiving evacuees, because she knows the city and relatives live there. Jackson also believes Cardinal would have contacted her if she was taken to the evacuation centre in Lac La Biche which sits about 100 kilometres north of Saddle Lake.“I know she would have contacted me if she was in Lac La Biche, but in both places we haven’t heard from her,” said Jackson.About 25,000 people were initially evacuated to oil and gas camps north of Fort McMurray, including on the territory of Fort McKay First Nation which took in about 5,000 people. Authorities moved about 7,000 people from the northern camps Thursday by airplane to southern evacuation centres in Calgary and Edmonton and other locations.Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said Friday authorities hoped to move about 5,500 people that day by air from northern camps to the south and also along Hwy 63. The only road out of Fort McMurray, Hwy 63 had been closed as a result of the wildfire. At one point the flames created a wall of fire along the highway. Notley said authorities hoped to move about 500 vehicles along Hwy 63 to points south of Fort McMurray.The vehicles began moving south on Hwy 63 at about 6 a.m. Friday in convoys of 50 cars bookended by RCMP cruisers while the Canadian military providing a helicopter escort from above.Alberta officials said fire conditions remain extreme across the province which currently faces about 40 wildfires.Officials said about 1,200 firefighters, 110 helicopters, 295 pieces of heavy equipment, including bulldozers, and 27 water bombers were engaged in battling the wildfires.Fort McMurray, Anzac, Gregoire Lake Estates and Fort McMurray First Nation remain under mandatory evacuation orders, according to the Alberta government’s latest update.Notley also said the provincial government would be providing $1,250 per adult, plus $500 per dependent, to those evacuated as a result of the wildfire. It will cost the province about $100 million to provide the interim financial relief.Officials again said during a press conference Friday that human effort will not be able to stop the wildfire, only rain can bring any hope.“Right now, we really do need some rain, there is no question about it,” said Chad Morrison, senior manager with Alberta Wildfire Prevention. “Even once we get rain, there is still going to be a lot of fire out there and a lot of work. We will be here weeks and weeks to put that fire out.”jbarrera@aptn.ca@APTNNewslast_img read more

Aurora Cannabis follows up greenhouse designer deal with Quebec producer buyout

first_imgFast-growing Aurora Cannabis Inc. struck twice Thursday, announcing the purchase of greenhouse design firm Larssen Ltd. in the morning and medical marijuana applicant H2 Biopharma Inc. of Lachute, Que., for up to $25 million in stock after markets closed.The Alberta-based cannabis producer said in the later news release that Larssen’s expertise will “play an instrumental role” in the final design of H2’s 4,300-square-metre cannabis production facility in the Montreal area, which it said is 80 per cent construction complete.Aurora said it intends to use its ownership of Larssen to pressure other cannabis producers to enter partnerships.Larssen is involved with more than 15 cannabis industry clients globally, including five Canadian licensed producers, but its Canadian deals will be reassessed once the buyout announced Thursday is completed, it said.“We’re going to certainly encourage those to proceed but we’re going to require some level of partnership, whether that be an equity stake or a supply agreement or other things,” said Aurora (TSX:ACB) executive vice-president Cam Battley.“We’re open to various formulae.”He wouldn’t name the five Canadian companies but said they don’t include CanniMed Therapeutics Inc., against which it is pursuing an all-stock hostile takeover bid, or Newstrike Resources Ltd., a company CanniMed is attempting to buy.According to its website, cannabis producer The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. is working with Larssen to build a large greenhouse in Quebec. It did not return a request for comment Thursday.Analyst Russell Stanley of Echelon Wealth Partners, who covers CanniMed but not Aurora, said he doesn’t know which Canadian companies Aurora is referring to in its release.He said it’s highly unusual for the buyer of a service company to so publicly declare that it will revise its deals with competitors.“I think in the context of also announcing plans to launch a hostile (bid) for CanniMed, clearly Aurora is being very aggressive in its growth strategy,” he said.He said the rapid rise in share price for Aurora and other cannabis companies means they can afford to make acquisitions very cheaply through stock offers.“You’re going to see M&A activity pick up, scale is going to become increasingly important,” he said.Aurora shares gained 32 cents or about five per cent to close at $6.74 on Thursday.Financial terms of the Larssen deal were not disclosed, but Aurora said they include performance-based milestone payments.Larssen, which has offices in Denmark and Burlington, Ont., is designing, engineering and overseeing construction of the half-built Aurora Sky cannabis greenhouse near the Edmonton International Airport which will have capacity to produce 100,000 kilograms of cannabis per year.Battley said the facility will be a closed system hybrid greenhouse capable of precise control of light, heat, humidity and nutrients to produce “ultra low cost” cannabis. To ensure no contaminants enter the system, the air system is designed to be overpressured and overhead robotic cranes will help to replace humans in the growing areas.Thomas Larssen, principal owner of Larssen Ltd., is to head up a new subsidiary called Aurora Larssen Projects Ltd.Aurora said Larssen is on pace to generate about $6 million in revenue in the next 12 months.H2 Biopharma is a late-stage medical marijuana licence applicant, Aurora said. Its facility is to produce up to 4,500 kilograms of cannabis per year and is situated on property that will allow expansion.Aurora said it will make an initial payment of $10 million in shares, with further payments dependent on completion of the facility, granting of cultivation and sales licences by Health Canada and municipal approval for expansion of the facility.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.last_img read more

Norfolk introduces interim CAO

Norfolk County has hired an interim CAO with extensive experience at the regional and metropolitan level.Harry Schlange, 61, was the head bureaucrat in Niagara Region from 2013 until he accepted the top administrative job in the City of Brampton in 2016.Last December, new Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown announced that his city council had decided to “part ways” with Schlange.Schlange takes over from former Norfolk CAO David Cribbs, who left Governor Simcoe Square in mid-January. His appointment takes effect Monday.“Interest in municipal politics is at an all-time high in Norfolk County,” Mayor Kristal Chopp said Thursday in a news release.“Residents have spoken loud and clear in favour of change. Schlange is just the kind of authentic leader we need to help deliver that change and modernize the corporation.”The mayor added that Schlange will help Norfolk compete “for talent, ideas and innovation.”“He understands how communities like ours need to differentiate themselves and eliminate any and all barriers to progress,” Chopp says. “That’s what makes him the right leader for this community.”Appointing an interim replacement took on some urgency in recent weeks after senior staff warned they are spreading themselves too thin.Last week, division managers reported that a CAO has knowledge of county files that they do not. As such, the recent routine of appointing general managers to wear the CAO hat on a rotating basis was not working.Staff told council March 26 that important items and issues were sitting idle and multiplying due to the increased workload. During an in-camera session at the same meeting, council opted to hire a CAO on an interim basis.Schlange has had a bumpy ride in recent years. The St. Catharines Standard reported three years ago that he survived an in-camera confidence vote at Niagara Region shortly before he accepted the CAO position in Brampton.Before Schlange left Niagara Region, his resignation letter to council was leaked to the media.In the letter, he said the region’s leadership was too timid and that some council members did not bring a constructive mindset to the table. Schlange said his job had become more difficult than it needed to be.“I have observed actions and behaviours at the leadership level that run contrary to these efforts and inhibit my ability to continue to deliver on the commitments I have made to you,” he said.“Instead of feeling empowered to take bold steps, we are beginning to find ourselves in an organization that is overwhelmed by the threat of strong repercussions and fearful to take even the most calculated risks.”MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

Internet well on way to 3 billion users UN telecom agency reports

“The newly released ICT [information and communications technology] figures confirm once again that information and communication technologies continue to be the key drivers of the information society,” said Hamadoun I. Touré, ITU Secretary-General.Brahima Sanou, the Director of ITU’s Telecommunication Development Bureau, touted this newest record as a watershed moment in the world’s growing affinity for ICT.“Behind these numbers and statistics are real human stories. The stories of people whose lives have improved thanks to ICTs,” said Mr. Sanou, adding “our mission is to bring ICTs into the hands of ordinary people, wherever they live. By measuring the information society, we can track progress, or identify gaps, towards achieving socio-economic development for all.”Internet users, according to the ITU report, are expected to hit 3 billion by the end of 2014, which accounts for about 40 per cent of the world’s population. Among those users, over three quarters are from developed countries while two-thirds come from the developing world. Moreover, people from developing countries make up for more than 90 per cent of those who are not yet using the Internet. In Africa, about one-fifth of the population will have access to the Internet; while in the Americas, nearly two-thirds of the population will be online by the end of the year. Further, Europe has the highest Internet penetration rate of 75 per cent, while the Asia-Pacific region has the largest population of Internet users.Turning to mobile-broadband penetration, the number of its subscriptions will achieve 2.3 billion globally. 55 per cent of them are expected to be in the developing world. As shown in the ITU statistics, mobile-broadband remains the fastest growing market segment, with continuous double-digit growth rates in 2014. In addition, Africa takes the lead in its growth, from 2 percent in 2010 to almost 20 percent in 2014.Compared to the spike of mobile-broadband, fixed-broadband, however, reflects slowing growth in the developing world. The ITU report expects its penetration to reach 10 per cent by end 2014. Similar to Internet subscriptions, Asia-Pacific region also dominates the most users in fixed-broadband, while Africa has the least, with lower than 0.5 per cent of its population.Regarding mobile-cellular, a significant step towards which subscriptions is that the number will reach 7 billion by end of 2014, with developing countries home to over 75 per cent among the users. This increase indicates the growing markets in the developing world.Even as the worldwide growth trend of these ICTs continues, fixed-telephone penetration, however, lags behind. According to ITU, fixed-telephone users have been declining for the last five years. In addition, there will be about 100 million fewer subscriptions than in 2009.“If we want to understand the information society, we have to measure it,” said Mr. Sanou, adding that “without measurement we cannot track progress or identify gaps which require our attention.”ITU statistics are widely recognized as the world’s most reliable and impartial global data on the state of the global ICT industry. They are used extensively by leading intergovernmental agencies, financial institutions and private sector analysts worldwide. read more

DR Congo Ban condemns attack on UN base calls for perpetrators to

One peacekeeper from Malawi was killed and another wounded during a heavy exchange of fire when the Ugandan rebel Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) attacked a base of the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in DRC (MONUSCO) in Makembi in North Kivu province, in the east of the vast country.Four national Congolese soldiers and a number of civilians were also killed in two other ADF attacks in the area. “The Secretary-General calls for swift action to bring the perpetrators of these attacks to justice,” a statement from his spokesman said. “He is extremely concerned by the series of attacks by the ADF in North Kivu, which have already resulted in more than 500 known civilian deaths since October 2014. Such attacks on civilians are a clear violation of international human rights and humanitarian law,” it added, reiterating UN commitment support the DRC authorities in neutralizing the armed groups.Earlier this month, the UN Security Council today called for the elimination of local and foreign armed groups, including ADF, which have for decades devastated the eastern regions of the DRC, urging the immediate resumption of joint operations between the UN peacekeeping force’s Intervention Brigade and the national army.In a separate statement, the Council also strongly condemned the attack and called on the Government of the DRC to swiftly investigate the incident and bring the perpetrators to justice.Underlining that attacks targeting peacekeepers may constitute war crimes under international law, the Council also strongly condemned the repeated attacks perpetrated against civilians by the ADF in North Kivu. Council members further stressed the utmost importance of neutralizing, once and for all, all armed groups in the DRC and called for the urgent resumption of operations against these groups.The members of the Security Council reiterated their support to MONUSCO and called on all parties to cooperate fully with the mission and to remain committed to the full and objective implementation of the mission’s mandate. read more

Ohio State mens tennis remains unbeaten defeats Penn State and North Carolina

Redshirt-junior Kevin Metka returns the ball during a match against North Carolina Feb. 28 at the Varsity Tennis Center. OSU won, 4-1.Credit: Ben Jackson / For The LanternThe No. 1 Ohio State men’s tennis team (17-0, 2-0) finally solved the riddle that is Penn State athletics, defeating the No. 34 Nittany Lions (10-1, 0-1) Sunday afternoon after topping No. 12 North Carolina (11-2) Friday night.For the third time in four matches, the Buckeyes lost the doubles point Sunday against the Nittany Lions. Redshirt-sophomore Chris Diaz and redshirt-freshman Ralf Steinbach rolled to an 8-1 victory over Penn State freshman Christian Lutschaunig and sophomore David Kohan, but the Nittany Lions were not deterred.Senior Russell Bader and sophomore Leonard Stakhovsky upset the Buckeyes’ No. 3 ranked duo of senior Peter Kobelt and redshirt-junior Kevin Metka, 8-6. Fellow Nittany Lions, senior Chris Young and junior Michael Reilly then followed it up with a 8-7 (7-5) win against redshirt-junior Hunter Callahan and freshman Herkko Pollanen to give the Nittany Lions a 1-0 advantage to begin the match.Coach Ty Tucker said he was not pleased with his team’s effort at the start.“We were as flat as we’ve been in 15 years,” Tucker said. “We looked like a deer in the headlights. Performance wasn’t very good from the coaching to the playing. Everything was below average.”The Buckeyes woke up in singles play, however, winning five of six first sets. Kobelt and Pollanen came out on fire, both winning in quick, straight sets. Kobelt was off first beating Stakhovsky 6-2, 6-2, and then Pollanen took care of Bader 6-1, 6-1.Metka got the Buckeyes within striking distance, defeating sophomore Matt Barry 6-4, 6-3. Callahan, playing right next to Metka, realized the match was his for the taking and took full advantage with a 6-3, 6-4 win in front of a large crowd that included athletic director Gene Smith.“I’ve been in that situation once before. I like it,” Callahan said of knowing he was playing for the match. “I don’t think it adds any pressure, just because we were up 3-1. There was no pressure for me today.”Not only did the win keep the top-ranked Buckeyes undefeated, but it also puts them one home victory away from tying the NCAA record for most consecutive home wins by a program (Stanford women’s tennis- 184).Friday night against the Tar Heels, the Buckeyes won the doubles point after dropping their previous two. Tucker said he thought about changing up his lineup, but keeping it the same worked out that night.“We were 50-50 whether we were going to switch Metka and Kobelt,” Tucker said. “We thought about it … We definitely have to do a better job in doubles, that’s for certain.”Diaz and Steinbach finished their match first after cruising to an 8-3 upset over Tar Heels junior Esben Hess-Olesen and sophomore Brett Clark. It was the duo’s first victory over a ranked opponent.Callahan and Pollanen had their serves broken consecutively and eventually fell to freshmen Ronnie Schneider and Brayden Schnur, 8-6. Kobelt and Metka stayed on serve all match with senior Nelson Vick and junior Oystein Steiro. In the tie break, Kobelt and Metka jumped out to a quick 4-0 lead and ended with an 8-7 (7-3) victory.Steinbach and Callahan got the Buckeyes off to a strong start in singles play with both winning in straight sets.Diaz lost his match against Clark, 6-3, 6-1, while Kobelt and Pollanen both dropped their first sets to give the Tar Heels a glimmer of hope.Metka seemed to have control of his first set against Hess-Olesen as he was up 5-2, but then lost three straight games and ended up playing in a tiebreak. Momentum seemed lost as he was down 4-2 in the tiebreak, but he regained his composure to come back and take the first set. In the second set, he broke Hess-Olesen’s serve once and held his serve the rest of the way to clinch the match with a 7-6 (7-5), 6-4 win.“We were neck-and-neck the whole tiebreaker,” Metka said. “He was up on me. I don’t know what happened, I got lucky and pulled it away. I won three in a row and went crazy.”The Buckeyes are next scheduled to play at No. 5 Oklahoma March 7. First serve is set for 6 p.m. read more

Sandvik to distribute Explorer plastic core trays and accessories worldwide

first_imgSandvik Mining and Construction has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with International Mining Supplies (IMS) based on the Sunshine Coast Queensland, Australia for the worldwide supply of the ‘Explorer’ plastic core trays and accessories. IMS has been one of the market leaders in the development of core sample trays and core boxes since 1995 when they launched the ‘Explorer’ core tray. The ‘Explorer’ was one of the first core trays in the world to use superior strength polypropylene. They were also the first to introduce built in handles, and a labelling facility and clip in core markers. The ‘Explorer’ core tray is now widely used throughout the industry because of its exceptional quality and improved safety and handling features. It is produced using highly UV stabilised polypropylene which gives it longevity in the field. There are numerous features built-in to assist the geologists, the plastic core trays are safer to handle with no sharp edges, they stack safely for transport and storage, are non-magnetic for easy magnetic susceptibility readings and will not rust in tropical climates.“We believe in continually improving what we offer to the mining and exploration industries and we look forward to providing them with even further improvements and new ideas over time” says Tanju Kadir, General Manager, IMS.  “A new core tray series available soon is a breakthrough in design since it will not only stack for safe transport and storage of diamond drill core, but also nest to minimise warehousing space required, and freight costs” he explains.This global distribution agreement formalises a relationship that is already working well in Australia. Globally, the agreement complements Sandvik Mining and Construction’s exploration drilling and core storage and handling product range.last_img read more

Les messages antiobésité ont du mal à passer daprès une association

first_imgLes messages anti-obésité ont du mal à passer, d’après une associationJeudi, l’association Observatoire de l’obésité (Obobs) a dénoncé l’impact limité qu’avaient les messages destinés à lutter contre l’obésité. Elle invite les industriels de l’agroalimentaire à communiquer davantage sur le sujet. Selon les estimations, entre 12 et 15% des enfants seraient en surpoids ou souffriraient d’obésité dans l’Hexagone. Un phénomène dont les autorités sanitaires alertent régulièrement afin d’inciter les programmes de sensibilisation et d’action. Toutefois, il semblerait que les messages anti-obésité adressés dans le cadre du Programme national de nutrition santé (PNNS) aient aujourd’hui un impact limité. En effet, l’association Observatoire de l’obésité (Obobs) a mené une étude des échanges sur les forums de discussions et en a déduit que les messages avaient du mal à passer dans la population. À lire aussiPourquoi le café donne-t-il envie de faire caca ?Plus précisément, cette association de prévention de l’obésité infantile a filtré sur des réseaux sociaux entre juillet et novembre 2011 quelque 20.000 discussions tournant autour de l’obésité ou du surpoids. De cette observation, est ressorti que le sport n’apparaît que de façon marginale dans les échanges et que les recommandations du ministère de la Santé de manger cinq fruits et légumes par jour et de manger-bouger ne figurent absolument pas dans les conversations des internautes, rapporte l’AFP. Des résultats qui rejoignent ceux d’enquêtes précédentes telles que celle du Crédoc, diffusée en novembre et qui montrait que seuls 27% des Français respectaient la recommandation officielle de manger au moins cinq portions de fruits et légumes par jour.Au vu de ces conclusions, l’association recommande donc aux industriels de l’agroalimentaire de s’impliquer davantage pour la prévention de l’obésité et de mieux faire connaître leurs actions. L’Obobs note en effet que les industriels sont parfois tentés de ne pas en faire publicité. Elle évoque ainsi le cas d’une chaîne de restauration rapide qui n’a pas cru bon, selon l’association, de communiquer sur le fait qu’elle ajoutait désormais des tomates cerises à son menu pour enfant par souci d’équilibre nutritionnel. Aujourd’hui, l’association voudrait jouer le rôle de fédérateur des initiatives individuelles des firmes agroalimentaires et appelle les industriels vertueux à venir s’associer à sa démarche. “Notre idée n’est pas d’être complaisant avec les industriels mais d’être un activateur”, a commenté le Dr Pierre Azam, médecin nutritionniste qui a fondé l’Obobs en 2009.Le 15 décembre 2011 à 19:37 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

After missing out from India squad Shubman Gill speaks about disappointment lays

first_imgBefore India’s squads for the respective series against West Indies was slated to be announced, young Shubman Gill was tipped as one of the favourites to make it to the limited-overs squads. He impressed in the IPL when he opened for the Kolkata Knight Riders and then has been impressive with the India ‘A’ side in the ongoing West Indies tour.However, the young man did not find any place in any of the squads and this has left him disappointed. India are scheduled to play three T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests against Windies but Gill couldn’t break into the team despite performing well for India A recently.’Disappointing not to get picked’ India’s Shubman GillMARTY MELVILLE/AFP/Getty Images”I was waiting for the Indian senior team to be announced on Sunday and I expected to be selected for at least one of the squads,” Gill told Cricketnext. “It was disappointing not to get picked but I am not going to spend time thinking over it. I’ll keep scoring runs and performing to the best of my ability to impress the selectors.””It was a fantastic series for me and team as well since we won with a 4-1 margin. Personally, I would have liked to carry on and score at least a couple of hundreds in those fifties. But I will learn from this experience,” he further added. Shubman GillICC/Getty ImagesSpeaking about the pitches and the West Indies ‘A’ side, the right-hander said that the opposition was a tough one and that the surfaces, especially in the first couple of games was very tough to bat on.”The West Indies team that we faced here in the series was very good. The pitches — especially in the first few one-dayers — were very tough to bat on. It was tough challenging cricket and it’s good that we managed to come out on top,” Gill said.The young man believes that he has learnt from the experience on the tour and would now look to adapt and adjust his game depending on the match situation.”The biggest lesson that I have learned from my first West Indies tour is to try to curb my natural game depending on match condition. It’s important to block the good balls as well and remain at the crease for as long as possible. Person who is set at the crease needs to bat through the difficult period,” he added.last_img read more

Report National Home Prices 15 Overvalued

first_imgReport: National Home Prices 15% Overvalued Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Delinquency Fitch Ratings Home Prices Housing Affordability Housing Supply Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Rates Service Providers 2014-01-22 Krista Franks Brock Following a year of fast-paced appreciation, “”Fitch Ratings””:https://www.fitchratings.com/web/en/dynamic/fitch-home.jsp expects home price gains to slow to a more moderate pace in 2014 in the United States, according to its “”_Global Housing and Mortgage Outlook_””:https://www.fitchratings.com/creditdesk/reports/report_frame.cfm?rpt_id=729595&cm_sp=homepage-_-Slideshow-_-GlobalResi released Tuesday. The ratings agency also predicts mortgage volume will decline and delinquencies and shadow inventory will decrease, albeit slowly, while liquidation timelines continue to rise.[IMAGE]Home prices will continue to rise on the winds of “”market momentum, the effects of inflation, the improving economy, and a return of buyers attracted by signs of stabilization,”” according to Fitch.However, rising mortgage rates and increasing inventory will temper price gains this year, the ratings agency said in its report.At a national level, prices are about 15 percent overvalued, according to Fitch. A few markets in western states are leading this trend with home price growth outpacing income and other economic factors. For example, price-to-rent and price-to-income ratios in San Francisco have risen almost 25 percent since early 2012, Fitch explained.Because of these trends, “”Fitch remains concerned about regional overvaluation,”” the ratings agency stated in its report.[COLUMN_BREAK]While affordability remains high overall, Fitch says affordability will slip somewhat this year. One contributing factor is rising mortgage rates, which will likely reach 5 percent in 2014, according to Fitch’s predictions. The ratings agency says rising interest rates will also contribute to “”a substantial decrease”” in lending this year.Prepayments will “”remain at lower levels than historical averages for the next several years”” as interest rates rise and refinances become less favorable, according to the ratings agency.On the other hand, purchase loans will grow over the next few years, Fitch said, adding that the government will “”continue to dominate market issuance through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.””Although “”a return to historic levels of arrears is not expected in the near future,”” Fitch noted that recently-originated loans are performing strongly.Long liquidation timelines, especially in judicial states, mean today’s shadow inventory will be slow to dissipate. While the industry’s shadow inventory will continue its current pace of decline for several years, Fitch says it will take about five years to work through the current volume of homes that make up the shadow inventory.Housing starts have begun to pick up, and Fitch expects them to continue to rise, but they will be vulnerable to price corrections.While U.S. prices will continue to rise this year, Fitch expects home prices in its northern neighbor to remain flat or fall slightly. This is due to Canada’s “”cautious lending policies driven by government measures,”” the ratings agency explained.Fitch harbors a mostly favorable outlook for the housing markets in all 17 countries covered in its _Global Housing and Mortgage Outlook_.
