Put to the test

first_imgWhen Conservative leader David Cameron visited Cotswold miller FWP Matthews to see the company’s new facilities and learn about a partnership with French miller Moul-bie, he was a little surprised to be asked questions by British Baker (see panel opposite page). Yet in a short, but wide-ranging conversation, he answered willingly.First, however, he told FWP Matthews managing director Paul Matthews that he was delighted to return to the mill after a gap of three years and see big changes, including the addition of a test bakery. He added: “I really love my daily bread, particularly crusty Cotswold Crunch which does not go on my expenses!”The day began with a gathering of around 30 local farmers and customers. Paul Matthews welcomed David Cameron as his local MP and outlined the changes that had taken place in the past three years, including new offices, a test bakery, warehouse, blending plant and bag palletiser. The group’s morning agenda started with a presentation by Alex Waugh of the National Association of British and Irish Millers (Nabim), followed by a tour of the working mill and a bread-making session with a Moul-bie baker under the watchful eye of Moul-bie’s European director Michel Nguyen, not to mention the curious farmers and bakers.Cameron good-humouredly rushed to keep up with his agenda and attend the talk given by Alex Waugh of Nabim, who told delegates that flour is present in 15-20% of all goods in the food chain, produced by around 30 businesses employing 2,500 people and 300 trained millers. He said: “It is extraordinary how efficient and intense production is, to be able to supply that percentage of the food chain.”Waugh also spoke about recent harvests and prices and how farmers must have the possibility of a return on what they sow. He said this year’s wheat harvest is good, approximately 15m tonnes, and protein content is higher than last year, but he added, “The cost of fertiliser for farmers has been way up on previous years, so production costs have also been high.”He then spoke about a schools education programme that the Flour Advisory Bureau (part of Nabim and also representing bakers) has devised. Visit www.grainchain.co.uk.As Cameron departed, Paul Matthews’ thoughts returned to daily business. He told British Baker: “In spite of the recession there will always be opportunities; you must go and look for them. Tell people what you do and don’t hide your lamp under a bushel in this climate.”Moul-bie’s Nguyen expounded on the commercial partnership with Matthews: “It started 10 years ago. We supplied Matthews and set up the Ronde des Pains craft bakers training scheme which is still going to this day. Matthews distributes our range of flours and mixes to the craft bakery sector. We provide technical assistance with French bakers, demonstrating how to make excellent French breads. We exclusively supply and support the craft trade with merchandising equipment to produce artisan bread and supply our flours and mixes also into Bako.”He continued: “Now, however, our partnership has moved on. As Matthews’ business has grown, we have entered into a licensing agreement to transfer our technology and our Maquette (specifically sourced pure wheat varieties which are not blended) and then we commission the blend.”Matthews added: “Matthews purchases the wheat from Moul-bie for traditional baguette flours. They go under the Moul-bie name but it states on the bag ’milled under licence by FWP Matthews’. This provides our customers with authentic French flour, unique to Moul-bie and Matthews in the marketplace.”Nowadays, customers are much more discerning than 20 years ago. They want authenticity and traceability. And by buying from us, they don’t just get flour but a great service.”Matthews in turn seems to get a good service from its local MP, though many attendees said they also expected a turnaround next year from MP to PM.last_img read more

Cris Jacobs Celebrates New Album Release With A Rocker In DC [Audio/Recap]

first_imgGypsy Sally’s hosted a release party for Cris Jacobs Band‘s new album, Dust to Gold on Friday, November 4th in Washington, DC. Jacobs, a local favorite and the former front man of The Bridge, has had what the Washington Post dubbed “an inspired year.” Shortly before beginning work on the album, he learned he would be a father and welcomed his daughter into the world only three weeks before Dust to Gold was released.Jacobs has become a staple at the Georgetown waterfront venue, with frequent performances both with his own group and other projects, like Everyone Orchestra and his annual “A Very Jerry Christmas” shows. The band seems to have settled into a consistent lineup, with Jacobs joined at Gypsy Sally’s by the same crew he recorded the album with; Jonathan Sloane backing up guitar, Todd Herrington on bass, and Dusty Ray Simmons on drums.They were thrown a curveball when Jacobs’ cigar box guitar (quite literally three strings stretched over a cigar box) stopped working. They’ve never played “Bone Digger” or “Turn into Gold” without it before, but the crowd was into it and those songs became the highlight of the night. As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, grab your six string and rip a mean solo.Thanks to taper, Will Urquhart, you can check out soundboard recordings of their full set.last_img read more

Building outward

first_imgJames Voorhies was looking down the ramp from the third floor of the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, toward the Prescott Street entrance of the new Harvard Art Museums. “How can you not want to walk up this ramp if you don’t know what it is?” he asked with obvious excitement.Voorhies, the new John R. and Barbara Robinson Family Director of the Carpenter Center, was expressing his anticipation not only of the opening of Harvard Art Museums in November, but also the potential for the center. A former director of the nonprofit Bureau for Open Culture as well as an art history and critical theory teacher at Bennington College, Voorhies assumed his Harvard post in February.Central to Voorhies’s vision for the Carpenter Center is the building itself, which was designed by the iconic French Modernist Le Corbusier (his only building in the United States) and opened in 1963. The building’s challenging design — a curvilinear mass supported by towering concrete columns, and that ascending S-shaped ramp, essentially splitting the structure in two — has in recent years been seen as more forbidding than welcoming.It’s also not a very practical exhibition space. As Voorhies is quick to acknowledge, “There are no walls.” That is, most spaces in the building — studios and offices alike — are defined by floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The third-level Sert Gallery was essentially created by installing interior walls in what was originally conceived of as a floor-through space extending from window to window. Likewise the gallery space in the first-level lobby, which has required that new walls be created for every exhibit.Voorhies’s solution, whenever possible: “No walls.”“I’m trying not to build a lot of walls but to really work with the space,” says Voorhies, going back to the original conception of the building, what he wryly refers to as “Le Corbusier’s zero.” The ramp, the containment of open spaces — both public and private — encompassed by glass walls, was supposed to make the building more inviting, blurring the distinction between outside and inside, drawing the visitor in.Voorhies’s philosophy is to “use the space as it is, rather than forcing it into a white cube” of the typical art gallery.In that regard, for the late-summer/early-fall visiting faculty exhibit, he installed mobile panels instead of the usual dry-wall mounts. In early October, the same panels become a stage backdrop and movie screen for a presentation by Naomi Yang ’86 and Damon Krukowski ’85. Yang screened her short film “Fortune,” while the duo (who record as Damon & Naomi, and both formerly performed with the indie-rock band Galaxie 500) sang and played live accompaniment. The event drew an estimated 150 people.Voorhies has undertaken an ambitious program of visiting artists, who he hopes will engage various departments of the University with layered, multidisciplinary projects. He also commissioned a new website, hoping for a stronger connection with the Harvard community and beyond.“So many people on campus haven’t heard of the Carpenter Center,” says Voorhies. “Or if they have, they haven’t been here.”As director, Voorhies is charged with exhibitions and programming. But the building also houses both the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies and the Harvard Film Archive, whose director, Haden Guest, initiated the Damon & Naomi collaboration. It’s that kind of collaborative use of the center’s resources — and “controlled, haphazard” use of the space — that Voorhies hopes will become part of a much broader agenda. “My job is to produce exhibitions, but with an overarching vision of how they connect to the academic life.”In the center’s offices, he produced a press release announcing the building’s opening in 1963, stating the Carpenter’s “educational task in making students from all departments of the University more intensely aware of their visual environment.” It was a sentiment reinforced in the 2008 report by the University’s Task Force on the Arts, which asked, “How can the visual arts connect with all students in all disciplines in Harvard?”To that end Voorhies is bringing in artists whose work could suggest a range of connections for a broad spectrum of faculty and curriculum. For instance, the British artist Simon Fujiwara, whose exhibition “Three Easy Pieces” opens Oct. 23, creates multimedia installations that touch on issues of race, sexuality, and gender. Voorhies is also excited at the prospect of Fujiwara, who teaches in London, making studio visits and working with students. He’d like to see visiting artists making repeated visits over a few years, forging connections with the Harvard community, and ultimately creating site-specific installations commissioned by the Carpenter Center.“It’s the basis of not only presenting something that’s unique in response to the building, but also a way to have an artist here with us on a longer-term basis. So you get two things at once — you get the artists and the connection to them, and an exhibition that can’t happen anywhere else but in this building.”last_img read more

Business Facilities’ Best of the Best: How Does PA Rank?

first_img Innovation,  Jobs That Pay,  The Blog The DCED Marketing Office is always looking for new opportunities to showcase Pennsylvania’s innovation, imagination, and legendary can-do spirit. We know it’s these unique qualities that set Pennsylvania apart from other states and ultimately drive the achievements of our economy and communities. That’s why I was delighted to see some new annual rankings recently published by Business Facilities. In those rankings, Pennsylvania placed in the top 10 in five distinct and important categories. Our excellent scores are evidence of the work we do every day to help businesses and communities thrive.Infrastructure Upgrades – No. 5We are proud to be ahead of the curve with infrastructure upgrades, which are not only essential to our communities and public safety, but are important for businesses to be successful and efficiently move products and services to market. We earned this ranking based on our investment and dedication to enhancing roads, bridges, dams, water and sewage treatment facilities, ports, airports, rail systems, fiber networks, energy pipelines, and electric transmission systems.Manufacturing – No. 6It’s no secret that Pennsylvania is a leader in manufacturing. It’s part of our legacy that continues to shape our future. If you take a look around your home, chances are you own many products made in Pennsylvania. Food, clothing, machines, plastics, and more are produced here. Our manufacturers and manufacturing workforce of more than 563,000 are the backbone of our economy and contribute to our quality of life.STEM – No. 6When it comes to STEM jobs — jobs in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math — Pennsylvania ranks sixth in the nation. This recognition is significant because we see science and technology as driving forces behind our economy. Just take a look at what’s happening in places like Pittsburgh, where we’re leading innovation in robotics and self-driving car technology. Or Philadelphia, where new high-tech smart fabrics are being created for everything from monitoring vital signs to storing energy. The list goes on. As a state, we offer a wealth of resources, including our nearly 300 institutions of higher education, to train and grow our future STEM leaders.Biotechnology – No. 7With more than 1,000 research, testing, and medical labs and an excess of 2,300 life sciences establishments, Pennsylvania is a leader in the life sciences and biotechnology. This past June, we joined 15,000 biotechnology and pharma leaders at the BIO International Convention in San Francisco, where we promoted the Keystone State as a life sciences leader and featured companies like Inovio Pharmaceuticals, which recently announced it will be the first to test an experimental vaccine in humans to combat the Zika virus. This is just one example of the many innovations resulting from Pennsylvania’s innovation ecosystem.Exports – No. 10Exporting offers innovative companies an opportunity to grow by expanding the sale of their products or services in international markets. They also help drive our economy. In fact, Pennsylvania exported $39.4 billion in goods and services in 2015. Our top export industries include chemicals, transportation equipment, computer and electronic products, machinery, and primary metals. In 2013, over 15,600 Pennsylvania companies were exporters – of which 89 percent (or nearly 14,000) were small or medium-sized companies with fewer than 500 employees. Exports are a true Pennsylvania success story and another example of how we are leading other states nationally and globally.I am proud to live and work in Pennsylvania, and it’s great to see that others are noticing our accomplishments, too. If you’re interested in seeing a full list of Pennsylvania’s accomplishments, visit our Awards and Rankings page, and follow us on Twitter (@PADCEDnews) for even more PA success stories.
