Taking shape

first_imgWith over 50 years’ experience in the baking and confectionery industries, Perrett and Kane Machine Services (Backwell, Bristol) has supplied the majority of celebration cake manufacturers with its machinery designs, including sheeters, horizontal cutters and shape stamping machines.Latest machine to join its range is the P&K 2D Shape Stamping, which has taken five years to develop and can produce a line of two-dimensional shapes in icing, pastry or marzipan every three seconds.Shape boards can be changed in minutes by an operator and are a fraction of the cost of conventional rotary machine change parts, claims the company. The 2D shape boards utilise a number of technologies in their design and are durable in everyday bakery use, adds the firm.

Appeals court rules in favor of ESPN

first_imgThe Indiana Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) is a public agency subject to public record laws, reversing a decision made in the trial court in Notre Dame’s favor.The University was sued by ESPN in January 2015, after Notre Dame refused to release incident reports related to student-athletes on two separate occasionThe St. Joseph County Superior Court issued a ruling in Notre Dame’s favor in April 2015. ESPN appealed the decision, and both parties presented their oral arguments to a three-judge panel on Feb. 25.The case hinges on NDSP’s status as either a private or public agency — under Indiana’s Access to Public Records Act (APRA), if NDSP is considered a public agency, it would be required to release certain records. ESPN reporter Maggie Smith argued the duties of NDSP are equal to those of any public police department.“What we know from Notre Dame’s own crime logs is they arrest, search, interrogate for crimes such as rape, burglary, larceny, aggravated battery, counterfeit, drug possession, DUIs — these are not the actions of your library security guard who is there to make sure that kids don’t take books,” she said, according to an audio recording of the oral arguments available on the Indiana Judicial Branch’s website.Notre Dame attorney Damon Leichty argued the law was never intended to apply to private colleges and universities. However, since October 2014, two state officials — Public Access Counselor Luke Britt and Attorney General Greg Zoeller — have said they consider NDSP to be subject to APRA.Zoeller said in a statement that he considers the appeals court ruling to be “a qualified victory for public access and transparency, concepts my office long has supported. The public has the right to transparency and accountability when police power is being exercised,” according to the South Bend Tribune.According to the Court of Appeals ruling, NDSP does qualify as a “public agency” under APRA’s definition of the term because it exercises public functions.“It would not be appropriate for the Police Department, having availed itself of its statutory right to exercise these public functions, to then be able to circumvent public records requirements to which all other entities exercising these same functions are required to adhere,” the ruling stated.The case will return to the trial courts to determine which records NDSP will be required to produce.“We do not, as ESPN requests, find that the trial court must order the Police Department to produce the public documents ESPN sought,” the ruling stated. “We instruct the trial court to determine which of the records the Police Department was required to produce under APRA and then order the Police Department to produce only those records.”Paul Browne, vice president for public affairs and communications at Notre Dame, said in an email that the University believes the Court of Appeals went “beyond the law.”“Since the opinion is not certified or final, it does not yet have effect, and the parties cannot act on it,” he said. “We will appeal to the Indiana Supreme Court.”The appeals court ruling may have a reduced impact if Indiana House Bill 1022, a bill to change the public record requirements for private universities, is passed into law. The bill would require police departments at private colleges and universities to only release information about incidents that result in arrests or incarcerations, exempting a large portion of cases occurring on college campuses.The bill passed Indiana’s General Assembly last week and is now being considered by Gov. Mike Pence.Tags: APRA, ESPN, ESPN lawsuit, Indiana Court of Appeals, NDSPlast_img read more

Are you living next to a brothel?

first_imgStuff co.nz 22 April 2015Marlborough residents could be living next door to a brothel without knowing it.An investigation revealed no official means to find out if brothels operated in Marlborough, and where they were.The Marlborough District Council does not have any bylaws dealing with prostitution or brothels.In 2003, brothels in New Zealand became legal under the Prostitution Reform Act.Any operators of a prostitution business with five or more sex workers are required to hold a certificate, which is issued by the Ministry of Justice.But a small owner-operated brothel, with four or fewer sex workers who each control their earnings, is not classed as having an operator, therefore no certificate is needed.http://www.stuff.co.nz/marlborough-express/67733614/are-you-living-next-to-a-brothel.htmllast_img read more

BetLion appoints Peter Stagles as Group Operations Director

first_img Peter Stagles has made the move from 21Bet to bolster the management team at BetLion ahead of the operator’s planned assault on the East African sports betting market. His appointment as Group Operations Director comes at an exciting time for BetLion, who this month combined the launch of its new betting product in Uganda by signing a sponsorship deal with the country’s national football team.BetLion will also contribute a significant percentage of revenues from the UGX 150 Million ‘Cranes Jackpot’ to develop Ugandan football, from the national team right through to grassroots level.In his new role, Stagles will oversee considerable expansion plans as BetLion intends to launch in a number of other territories within East Africa over the next 12 months. However, for the duration of the World Cup and the months ahead, his primary focus will be on Uganda.He said: “It’s a hugely exciting time and I am relishing the challenge of helping to take BetLion forward to become one of the foremost betting companies, firstly in Uganda and then further afield.“Making the decision to move from East London to East Africa was a big one, but it wasn’t nearly as difficult as I would have thought. This was because the huge potential that BetLion has to make waves within the African market was so apparent. This is what made the opportunity so compelling.“With the plans that we are developing, a great team with localised knowledge on the ground, our aggressive marketing approach and an impressive platform powered by FSB tech, we have all the ingredients in place for our ambitious growth programme to succeed.”Stagles made the “big” decision to move after nearly two and a half years with 21Bet, as both Head of UK and Global Gaming and Sportsbook Manager.Prior to that, he spent more than five years at Blue Square at the beginning of the internet betting boom, before undertaking a number of trading and consultancy roles in the industry.He added: “I am very much structure and process driven and put huge emphasis on product. The experience gained through previous roles and the relationships formed working with FSB and other B2B partners in the past will hold me in good stead in adding considerable value to the brand.”BetLion CEO Oliver Bates said: “I am delighted to welcome Peter to the team – he provides a fantastic level of knowledge and a wealth of experience, all of which will be invaluable to us at BetLion.”Stagles also noted the clear appetite for sportsbetting within Uganda, a country which continues to embrace internet and mobile technology. In fact, online sports betting’s status as a growth industry in Uganda is shown by the fact that a quarter of urban males have placed a bet.He concluded: “What really appealed to me is the way that that BetLion resonate with Ugandan’s and the approach that will be taken in East Africa. We are fully invested into the region with almost all of the team being Nationals. This localisation and ability to converse with our custom base is key and it is something that is far too often overlooked or underplayed by online competitors.”BetLion has become one of the first companies to bring Cash Out to ‘mobile first’ Uganda. The total number of mobile phone subscriptions is 23,529,979 (over 43%), while over 17 million (41%) have access to internet, and there are over 22 million mobile money subscribers.
