BNW drives in wrapper


first_imgLancashire-based BNW Bakery Services says its BW5 machine can be used for wrapping bread, cake and flour confectionery.When sliced bread is to be wrapped, the use of a BNW LB90 or B51 Slicer machine, linked to the wrapper by an indexer unit to transfer the sliced loaves into the BW5 machine, provides a complete plant that will slice and wrap in one continuous operation.BNW has recently supplied Warburtons’ new Tuscany park site with the new Overhead Paddle Wrapper. The wrapper is fitted with an HMI screen allowing the operator to adjust the print registration and the wrapper running rate. The HMI screen also displays alarms to aid the operator with the wrapping process.The BW5 Wrapper is still a popular machine with both major bread manufacturers and the small independent bakers, claims the company. The wrapper can be adjusted to suit all different sizes of products, and can wrap with either wax paper or cellophane.last_img read more

Chiefs : Robinson honored 65 years after breaking color barrier


first_imgFor one day at Alliance Bank Stadium, the number 42 was encircled in the dirt behind home plate, taking the spot where an interlocking ‘SC’ would normally be. The tradeoff, though, was well worth it.The Syracuse Chiefs celebrated Jackie Robinson Day on Sunday before and during their game against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, marking the 65th anniversary of Robinson becoming the first African-American player in Major League Baseball to break the color barrier. The Chiefs wore commemorative Negro League-themed jerseys and hats during the game, and The National Baseball Hall of Fame brought Robinson’s Hall of Fame plaque to the stadium and displayed it in the concourse for fans to view.Bradford Horn, the National Baseball Hall of Fame’s director of communications and education, said programs are held in the museum every year on April 15, but the Hall of Fame wanted to bring the plaque to enhance fans’ ability to understand Robinson’s legacy.‘Our presence here today is designed to give all of the Syracuse community, those who are out here today, the opportunity to see an original piece of baseball history,’ Horn said. ‘… This plaque, by bringing it to Syracuse today, we hope that it helps this community understand the importance of Jackie Robinson.’The Chiefs’ wore light blue jersey tops with navy blue sleeves featuring two light blue stripes. A white ‘S’ and ‘C’ were on the front of the jerseys, and the Chiefs wore gray pants.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTyler Moore, who honored the day further by drilling a pitch from Yankees starter Ramon Ortiz over the right-field wall in the second inning, said it’s a privilege to devote a day to the baseball pioneer.‘It was great,’ Moore said. ‘Jackie, the things he did for this game was unbelievable, and it’s always good to pay him tribute.’Robinson’s plaque on display Sunday is not the one that hangs in the Hall of Fame, as the museum chose to re-cast his plaque in 2008. Horn said the original plaque did not say Robinson was the first to break the color barrier because the humble Robinson was adamant about not calling attention to his accomplishment.In 2008, more than 40 years after his induction in 1962, the museum hung a new plaque that listed Robinson’s achievement because the Hall of Fame felt it was important to educate future generations, Horn said.Robinson’s No. 42 has been retired throughout baseball since 1997.Yankees closer Mariano Rivera will be the last to wear the number. He was already wearing it when MLB made the decision to honor Robinson in that regard, and the number was grandfathered in.John Melnick, 57, of Syracuse, said he was glad to see the Chiefs recognize Robinson and that it’s important to remember the sacrifices he and the African-Americans who followed him into baseball made.‘I think it’s great. I think it’s important,’ Melnick said. ‘I think Jackie Robinson is a legend beyond belief and anyone that has stopped to look at baseball and its history and sacrifices African-Americans have made for his country and their perseverance. I don’t know how to describe something like that.’[email protected] Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Published on April 15, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @chris_isemanlast_img read more

Jose gears up for transfer revolution as Spurs enter make-or-break week


first_imgJOSE MOURINHO has accepted defeat in his quest to prioritise one competition this season.But Tottenham’s boss is getting ready to revolutionise his squad this summer.2 Jose set for transfer warCredit: EPASpurs’ crippling injury list has hit the club hard and exposed Mourinho to criticism over his methods.Heading into today’s teatime clash at Burnley, embattled Spurs are on a four- match losing run.After the FA Cup KO on penalties against Norwich, Mourinho vowed to talk to the club and decide whether he should prioritise today’s clash  or  Tuesday’s Champions League second leg  with RB Leipzig.No such showdown  has   taken place with chairman Daniel Levy, as Mourinho accepts they have no choice but to go full tilt in both matches despite his threadbare squad showing signs of running on empty.But the Special One has made it clear Spurs must spend big in the summer because they simply cannot be caught short by injuries again.Mourinho said: “I know the priority, I do not need a specific day to have a specific discussion with the boss.MAKE YOUR DEBUT Bet £5 get £20 in free bets for new customers at Ladbrokes“We are together every day. I don’t need to have a discussion, we just need to share our ideas.“We feel the same. We know that the players are tired, the injured players. We know we have to build a squad more balanced for next season.“You have to be ready to cope with these unpredictable things.“We need to have a different shape to the squad to be ready for these unexpected things that happen to us.“But we all know we have to try to win tomorrow and try to win on Tuesday.“If we don’t then we leave, like we did in the last match against Norwich. We leave, we sleep in peace, sad, but we sleep in peace then the next day, we go again.”Mourinho has never suffered a run of four successive defeats, and with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Moussa Sissoko still absent he has few options to make any changes.It is putting huge pressure on the remaining players, who have all been consulted by the management team to see if they have the energy to go again against the Clarets.To a man, the entire squad have stood up to be counted — but some have admitted they are close to running on empty.They include new signing Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura, who are having to shoulder a huge workload.2 Crocked Spurs star Harry KaneCredit: ReutersMourinho added: “Some people are critical of me because I am repeating the same comments all the time so I don’t want to repeat the same things.“Obviously people are tired to listen to it but the run of injuries this club had this season, starting with Hugo Lloris and ending with Sonny, is something really crazy.“But again we have to prepare ourselves for something similar to happen again and we have to build a squad that protects against this kind of situation.“We are in a situation where I think it is very hard to prioritise. But it is a discussion to have internally. The communication with the players is always the most important thing.“Some players over the last 120 minutes have run more than 15km.TottenhamRACE OFFBoston Marathon CANCELED due to coronavirus pandemicWHO’S THE DADDYCamilla Thurlow holds Jamie Jewitt’s ‘baby bump’ in hilarious pic’hold firm’Stern warning for businesses using loopholes to flout restrictions and reopenPLOT TWISTThe Walking Dead boss tried to kill off Negan in season 8 with Maggie shootingWhy yo-oh-oh-oh-oh-gaaaaa is good for youMAKE A HOUSE A HOMEHabitat announces 25% off EVERYTHING for Bank Holiday weekendHELPING HANDGenerous Northern Ireland YouTuber Adam B buys his parents a houseSpoilerANDREA’S RAGEEmmerdale’s Andrea vows revenge on Jamie after realising he is leaving herSpoilerDAD IN DISGUISEEmmerdale’s Vinny horrified as he discovers Alex is really his dad PaulSpoilerLOVE RATHarriet agrees to marry Will on Emmerdale despite affair with Malone“We know we are going to play against players who have had a week preparing for the match.“We have decisions to make.

UPDATE One student shot at high school in Taft Calif


first_imgTAFT, Calif. (AP) — A 16-year-old student armed with a shotgun walked into class in a rural California high school on Thursday and shot one student, fired at another but missed, and then was talked into surrendering by a teacher and another staff member, officials said.The teen victim was in critical but stable condition, Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood told a press conference. The sheriff said the teacher suffered a minor pellet wound to the head but declined treatment.When the shots were fired, the teacher began trying to get the more than two dozen students out a back door and also engaged the shooter in conversation to distract him, Youngblood said. A campus supervisor responding to a call of shots fired also began talking to him.“They talked him into putting the shotgun down,” Youngblood said.The sheriff said that at one point the shooter told the teacher, “I don’t want to shoot you” and named the person he wanted to shoot.The shooter may have had up to 20 shotgun rounds in his pockets, he said.Officials said there’s usually an armed officer on campus but the person wasn’t there because he was snowed in. Taft police officers arrived within 60 seconds of first reports.last_img read more
