Innocent’s Kate Voss joins Modern Baker as COO


first_imgModern Baker, the Oxford-based healthy baking business, has recruited Innocent’s Kate Voss as its new chief operating officer.Voss, who spent 13 years at the drinks firm working across supply chain management, operations and NPD, will be responsible for driving the ‘slow-carb’ baking brand’s five-year growth strategy, working with the senior leadership team and focusing on building relationships with suppliers and customers.The appointment comes as Modern Baker starts talks with multiple retailers about stocking its prod-ucts.The brand launched a range of sliced loaves a year ago, following 18 months of R&D with Campden BRI and Newcastle University to improve the quality of dietary carbohydrates.Currently, its long fermented, clean-label breads, cakes and biscuits are sold in outlets including Planet Organic, Selfridges, as well Modern Baker’s café in Oxford.Voss, who began her career at Sainsbury’s working in supply chain management before moving to In-nocent in 2005, said: “Helping shape the future of a brand that’s challenging barriers to healthier foods is such an exciting opportunity, especially when you look at the NPD pipeline that’s been built on nutri-tional  R&D.”Modern Baker co-founder Leo Campbell, added: “Kate’s timing is perfect as Modern Baker steps up a gear, and her 13 years drinking Innocent’s tone, culture and ambition will sit well here.”The business this week announced the start of a study into the impact of freezing on the health cre-dentials of bread.last_img read more

Student captures ‘united faces of Emily’


first_imgPhotos courtesy of Kay Xu Junior Kay Xu is on a mission to track down each of the 98 Emilys on Notre Dame’s campus and take a photograph of each woman.Shooting her subjects smiling, talking, scowling and laughing, Xu said she is trying to capture what makes the Emilys of Notre Dame similar and what makes them unique.“I think it’s really interesting; it’s really kind of weird,” she said. “Many times, in photography, people want to see weird things.”Xu said her project — which she calls the “United Faces of Emily” — began as an assignment for a photography class.The original directive, she said, was to photograph three people who were related in some way.After discovering two other people on campus had the same full name as her former roommate, junior Emily Morgan, Xu said she decided their shared name would be the focus of her project.  She said the motivation behind this decision was her belief that when two people have the same name, there exists a special connection between them.“Sometimes you hear someone has the same name as yours, and you feel like she’s your sister or she’s your family, though you don’t know her,” Xu said.When she was unable to contact one of the three Emily Morgans, she expanded her attention to include all of the Emilys on campus.Xu said through meeting and taking pictures of Notre Dame’s Emilys, she hopes to explore the impact of a person’s name on her identity.“What does a name mean?” she asked. “If your name is Emily, what does it mean to you? What does it make different? When you are meeting other Emilys, what kind of feelings do you have?”Practically speaking, Xu said she hopes to photograph at least half of the almost 100 Emilys on campus during Wednesday afternoon photo sessions in Riley Hall of Art and Design.“It’s kind of awkward,” she said. “I really haven’t done something like staying in a room with strangers for two hours, one hour, even 20 minutes. That’s hard for me. But I just get more and more comfortable with the talking and shooting process.”Morgan said Xu infuses the project with energy and creativity.“She gets really excited when shooting, and talks and talks and talks with the Emilys. I’ve gone to multiple shoots to just sit and talk too,” Morgan said. “There’s a lot of laughter.“It’s a bold step for someone in her position to take. She isn’t even a design major but still took this photography class solely based on interest,” she said.Xu hopes to display the portraits she has captured of the individual Emilys for the campus community along with a final composite photograph fused together from the individual shots in an exhibit at the end of the semester, she said.“Photography — there’s something technical about it, how you make photos really pretty,” Xu said. “But the other side is the humanities, philosophy — the social side. Through these, I don’t want to just take photos of people. I want to make those photos mean something to them and to me and probably to the rest of the world.”Tags: Emily Morgan, Emily photo project, Emily photos, junior photo project, Kay Xu, photo project, Riley Hall of Art and Design, United Faces of Emilylast_img read more

Morris Inn restaurants close temporarily due to burst pipe


first_imgThe two restaurants in the Morris Inn at Notre Dame — Rohr’s and Sorin’s — will be closed Tuesday night due to a burst pipe in Rohr’s, according to an email from University spokesperson Dennis Brown. Early Tuesday afternoon, the Notre Dame Fire Department responded to an alarm at the Morris Inn after a frozen pipe broke, releasing water in a stairwell between the kitchen and Rohr’s bar and grill, according to the email. Both restaurants are expected to open Wednesday and there was no extensive or lasting damage to either restaurant or the hotel.

Three things to ponder in the week ahead


first_imgHere are three things you should know as you snap back from reality following a sunny and dry summer weekend:The Washington Post is reporting that Fannie Mae will begin raising its maximum debt to income ratio from 45 percent to 50 percent, beginning July 29, 2017. This is of course big news for those of you who provide mortgages because it expands the pool of member mortgages that can be sold to the secondary market. Also, remember that under the Dodd-Frank Act any mortgage that qualifies for sale to either Fannie Mae or Freddy Mac is a qualified mortgage. This is a big deal because without this, under the qualified mortgage requirements, the debt to income ratio cannot exceed 43 percent per the CFPB.If all goes as expected, the Federal Reserve will once again nudge interest rates higher when its policy making committee meets later this week. Personally, I am really looking forward to Federal Reserve’s Chair Janet Yellen’s press conference following the festivities. The economy continues to send out a string of mixed signals and it will be interesting to see how much she hedges her bets when it comes to the possibility of future rate hikes later in the year. continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Is this the future of property?


first_imgJack Dixon of Dixon Family Estate Agents has laid our his thoughts on the future of property. Photo: Tara Croser.You wouldn’t usually imagine property professionals as shawl-covered gypsy soothsayer gazing deeply into their crystal balls so as to seek answers on what lies ahead for their industry.But Brisbane’s Dixon Family Estate Agents principal, Jack Dixon, took some thinking time and came up with some thoughts on the future of residential real estate.Mr Dixon highlighted six ways in which property dealings will be flipped on their head in the future. MAIN ROAD PROPERTY TO BECOME MORE VALUABLE Traditionally, buyers won’t touch a main road position with a 10-foot pole, but Mr Dixon said that attitude will change over the next decade.He said houses on major arterial roads currently suffer a 35 to 40 per cent discount on similar properties in quiet suburban streets, but the gap is sure to tighten.“Technology and transport innovations could eliminate that discount,” he said. “As we see more and more electric cars on the road, noise and pollution will significantly reduce.“Other trends will also contribute to making major roads quieter and safer, for example there will be fewer trucks thanks to freight innovations, deliveries made by drones, and a preference for local produce with low ‘road miles’.” HOUSES AS A STATUS SYMBOL Mr Dixon said current discussions around housing affordable show we are close to a future where only the well-heeled will be able to buy a free-standing home.“Cities will grow up, not out, as resistance mounts to urban sprawl,” Mr Dixon said.He believed a drive to reduce our environmental footprint and living costs will result in higher densities near the city rather than promote further city-fringe growth.“As a consequence, land in urban areas will be more and more prized. I can see a day when the younger and less affluent people in society live in high-density units, and only the most wealthy will be able to afford to retain their own patch of land and a house.” TECHNOLOGY IS THE FRIEND OF ACREAGE Mr Dixon believed technological advancement will make it easier to maintain large acreage home sites.“In recent years, we’ve seen the acreage market soften because people are just so busy these days that they don’t want or can’t manage the high maintenance demands that come with big properties,” he said.Mr Dixon said tasks such as cleaning and mowing will become automated.“…so the elite in society will again want to enjoy acreage living, free from menial demands,” he said.“Other innovations will make it even more practical and desirable. Self-drive cars to deliver children to school, drones to get the shopping, the ability to work from home; with no worries about traffic congestion and commuting, acreage properties will become more and more coveted.” FLEXIBLE HOMES More of us will be working from home in the future, said Dixon, and this will not only see some workers leave behind the strain of the daily commute, but they’ll’ also enjoy the opportunity to have flexible working hours.“That means our homes will have to become much more flexible, especially as space increasingly commands a premium,” Mr Dixon said.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home4 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor4 hours ago“I love the idea Samsung floated in their Future Living Report, where our home will be able to adapt to our needs, being constantly reconfigured and rearranged to accommodate different purposes.“They imagined walls and floors able to change shape and size quickly, and virtual decorations altering to suit changing tastes and moods. Screens and computer displays can form and disappear in any room, as needed, so your bedroom might become your office in the daytime, lounge in the evening, and then revert to sleeping quarters.” CROWDED HOUSE Mr Dixon agreed with an opinion that the combination of improved medical technology which helps maintain our ageing population, plus a lack of housing affordability for the young, will see homes become multi-generational in Australia“This concept, common in European society, is likely to become more familiar here for a number of reasons,” Dixon said.“It will also be a consequence of the space and affordability issues I mentioned earlier.“Individuals and couples may no longer be able to afford a stand-alone house, but multiple generations could, so houses will change and expand to suit a variety of cohabitation models.” THE END OF THE AGENT Mr Dixon said even his profession isn’t immune from future changes with advancing digital development possibly consigning real estate agents to the scrapheap.“Virtual reality is already very advanced,” Dixon said. “Virtual touring of properties will become the norm, rather than the exception.“You’ll be able to very realistically walk through and experience properties remotely, even those that may not yet exist.”He said this could result in doing away with the traditional role of the real estate agent.“Only time will tell. But, while I fully expect virtual inspections to become commonplace, I believe there can be no match for professional experience and personal service and these remain the all-important ingredients an agent brings to a successful transaction.”Nice save Mr Dixon 🙂 Follow Kieran Clair on twitter at @kieranclairlast_img read more

The Catalan club will take on Napoli in the second leg of their Round of 16 tie – which is currently poised at 1-1 – in the Champions League at the Camp Nou next month, and still have an outside chance of European glory in a campaign which did not bring any domestic trophies.
