Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment! Eggs are as expensive as ever, but bacon’s a bargain. Why?From The Hustle 2 COMMENTS April 7, 2020 at 12:55 am Egg prices have increased nearly 250% from 84¢ to $2.93 for a dozen in the US this year, making huevos a better investment than gold (and every major stock index) in 2020.On the other side of the skillet, prices for pork belly — the cut used for makin’ bacon — decreased 56% in just the last 2 weeks, hitting their lowest price since 1999.So… why is one side of the breakfast plate cooling off while the other sizzles?It’s a tale of 2 supply chainsRestaurants and supermarkets rely on separate sources to buy ingredients.Some food products are generally in demand just among restaurant suppliers (like foie gras) or supermarket suppliers (like Lucky Charms). Others are in demand at both — but tend to be more popular at one than the other.In the past, both eggs and bacon were supermarket-centric.But pork-belly products became more restaurant-centric — menus were filled with bacon-wrapped everything.And it’s a bad time to be a restaurant stapleMarket shifts usually impact both supply chains fairly equally. But this pandemic had an unusual impact on restaurant and supermarket suppliers:A spike in supermarket demand led to a sudden shortage of supermarket-centric ingredients… like eggs.A drop in restaurant demand led to a sudden surplus of restaurant-centric ingredients… like bacon.Now, the 2 supply chains are going to get tangledRestaurant food suppliers are starting to sell their restaurant ingredients to supermarkets to stay afloat:Sysco and US Foods, the country’s 2 largest restaurant suppliers, are both pivoting to supply supermarkets.Regalis, which usually sells truffles, foie gras, and other pricey foods to restaurants, started selling directly to consumers. It’s offering a free ounce of Black Kaluga caviar — a classic restaurant-centric ingredient — to anyone who spends $250.

The design and building of Tree House was a labor of love. I designed this house for my sister, her first house. The death of our father allowed her the funds to build it. Tree House sits on a cul-de-sac at the end of a mature subdivision in Wilmington, DE, USA. It is filled with century-old deciduous trees, which form a magnificent canopy 150 feet above the site. A stream runs around the house, and because of certain restrictions of the Army Corps of Engineers and because of the potential for flooding, the buildable area is quite small. This induced us to design a vertical house, with raised Living Room and Master Suite. These spaces give one the feeling of being in the trees.Save this picture!The stairs inside were fabricated at the performance stage shop where my sister works. They are made of 1/2″ aluminum plate, with two treads in each unit. Shades of purple set the color scheme: dark aubergine curtains, a grey-purple stone for the wall which encloses the fireplace and media storage. Horizontal windows encircle the house, providing select views into the landscape. In contrast to these small views, a great wrapping window in the double-height Living Room provides a dominant diagonal focus for the house, and leads views into the deep woods to the northeast. A roof deck provides a view in all directions from a height of 35 feet in the air.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessNothing is higher than an architect (according to George Constanza)ArticlesGenesis House, “Palais de Justice” / PLANDAArticles Share “COPY” Houseslast_img read more

Hard freeze warnings persist in the South but warmth on horizon: Latest forecast

first_imgABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, EMILY SHAPIRO, and MELISSA GRIFFIN, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Friday brought another frigid morning to the hard-hit South, where temperatures dipped into the teens and 20s.The region gradually will warm up throughout the day, melting some ice and snow, but one more night of cold is expected to re-freeze roadways.Hard freeze warnings remain in effect for parts of the South as wind chills are expected to fall into the teens and 20s, from Texas to Mississippi, on Saturday morning.After a week of historic and disastrous cold, snow and ice, over 14 million in Texas are experiencing disrupted water service and over 180,000 customers in the state arestill without power.In Harris County — home to Houston — there have been 10 hypothermia deaths and over 600 cases of carbon monoxide poisoning, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo said.President Joe Biden said on Friday he would sign a major disaster declaration for Texas, separate from the emergency declaration he signed Sunday.In Jackson, Mississippi, most residents have little to no water pressure. Jackson Public Works Director Charles Williams said the length of the cold snap in Jackson has taken a toll on water production.“Hopefully, by this weekend you will start seeing some pressure build back up, and water will slowly be restored,” Williams said Thursday, adding that it’s difficult to provide a timeline because weather impacts are “unpredictable.”But the record cold blast should break down over the weekend and into early next week — in Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi, temperatures may even reach the 70s.Meanwhile, the Northeast is enduring another snowstorm.The heaviest snow totals are north of Philadelphia and in central New Jersey, where up to 11 inches fell over the last 24 hours.The New York City area saw 3 to 5 inches of snow, while the Boston area got about 2 inches.Winter weather advisories remain in effect from Philadelphia to New York City.Southern New England could see another 1 to 3 inches of snow before the storm leaves Friday night.Some 6 million vaccine doses have been delayed due to this week’s weather, affecting all 50 states, White House senior adviser Andy Slavitt said Friday.More than 2,000 vaccine sites are still without power and unable to receive doses, he said.“We’re already working to clear this backlog — 1.4 million doses are already in transit today, and we anticipate that all the backlog doses will be delivered within the next week, with most being delivered within the next several days,” Slavitt added.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Purplebricks pays ‘breathing guru’ to give stressed home movers online advice

first_imgPR wheezes come in many forms from estate agencies but the latest from Purplebricks takes it to a new level.The hybrid estate agency has launched a series of ‘world first’ online meditation videos designed to help those buying or selling survive the emotional stress of changing address.While agents may raise their eyebrows, the campaign is fronted by renown ‘breath coach’ Rebecca Dennis, who is chums with TV presenter Ferne Cotton.Called the Moving Meditations series, Purplebricks has promoted the initiative via media agency SWNS Digital over the past 12 hours which has so far been picked up by most of the UK’s national tabloid newspapers including The Sun and Mirror.Clearly unaware of the ongoing industry controversy about Purplebricks’ sales model, Dennis is quoted as saying: “At times, it can feel like a rollercoaster. From the excitement of finding your dream home to the wait as you make an offer, there are plenty of ups and downs along the way.Not the smoothest“While the journey is not always the smoothest, there are certainly ways to find calm amongst the chaos.“The way we breathe has a powerful effect on how stressed we feel and meditation can help to relieve that stress.”The media campaign is backed up by research among 2,000 people ‘preparing to instruct’.It suggests that one in five of those canvassed had considered pulling out of a transaction due to the stress created by the process, and that two-thirds said this was because they felt unable control the process.Read more about Purplebricks.Rebecca Dennis Moving Meditations breathing guru Purplebricks October 22, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Seychelles: Force Commander Promotes EU Counter Piracy Operation View post tag: promotes Training & Education View post tag: EU The event was hosted by the EU presidency representative to the Seychelles, Ambassador HE Genevieve Iancu.Rear Admiral Bléjean present to the audience the results and prospects of Operation Atalanta. During his intervention, he underlined the EU comprehensive approach against Somali based piracy and saluted the Republic of Seychelles for their staunch contribution in the fight against piracy.Five suspected pirates, detained by FS Siroco were handed over for prosecution to Seychelles in January. The Seychelles Police arrested them on arrival and the courts currently hold those men on remand. This is one further example for the long lasting cooperation between the EU Naval Force and the Republic of Seychelles, marked also by the transfer agreement with the EU from 30 October 2009. The agreement allows Operation Atalanta to bring suspect pirates before the Seychelles courts.It is the EU Naval Force policy to always seek a legal finish where possible.Force Commander Rear Admiral Bléjean said on this occasion: “This country may be small by its population, but huge by its commitment against piracy – the Seychelles willingness to prosecute pirates is a key factor for current counter-piracy achievements.”The French warship Siroco left her home port Toulon on 18 November 2013 to join Operation Atalanta on 6 December. FS Siroco is the third EU Naval Force flagship under French command since the operation started in 2008.[mappress]Press Release, March 13, 2014, 2014; Image: EU Navforcenter_img March 13, 2014 View post tag: piracy View post tag: News by topic Share this article View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy View post tag: operation View post tag: Commanderlast_img read more
