The firm said Nestle Health Science, to be operational from 1 January 2011, will conduct research into foods that can improve health and longevity. The parent company will invest around SwFr500m (£321m) the next decade and the new offshoot will compete with companies such as Abbott Laboratories, chairman Peter Brabeck said. It will be run at arm’s length from Nestle’s main food, beverages and nutrition activities, and will incorporate its HealthCare Nutrition unit. The HealthCare Nutrition unit had a turnover of SwFr1.6bn in 2009.Nestle as a group is one of the world’s biggest producers of processed foods, including Nesquik drink and Haagen-Dazs ice cream, with sales of SwFr108bn last year. Luis Cantarell, currently head of operations in the Americas, will head the new company from the start of next year. Nestle chairman Peter Brabeck-Letmathe said: “Personalised health science nutrition is about finding efficient and cost effective ways to prevent and treat acute and chronic diseases in the 21st century.”Around 285m people have diabetes, one of the major causes of premature illness and death worldwide. Vevey-based Nestle said as a result of Cantarell’s move, Chris Johnson would join the Nestle executive board. last_img read more

Those willing to invest £5m in a British bank account will be allowed to settle here after three years, under the rules outlined in parliament yesterday.Those who invest £10m will be allowed to stay after two years, compared to the current minimum five-year requirement.Wealthy individuals who move to Britain and deposit £1m in a British bank account will be allowed to stay after the five-year period, and will also be exempt from the statutory English language test being drawn up for other migrants. City firms had feared that foreign bankers and lawyers with vital skills needed in Britain could have been caught out by the new immigration rules. However, the government is gradually clarifying its position on highly paid individuals wishing to settle here. The changes include an extension to the amount of time wealthy migrants can spend away from Britain, while still qualifying for UK residence. This period will now double from 90 to 180 days.“During extensive consultation, it became clear that one of the most unattractive criteria of the existing investor scheme was the number of days that investors were required to be present in the UK in order to qualify for settlement,” said Nick Rollason, head of immigration at City law firm Kingsley Napley.He added that the new rules were “win-win for the UK”. whatsapp Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Sharelast_img read more

Gloucester wing Ollie Thorley

first_imgWhat’s your guilty pleasure?Caramac bars and Disney films.What’s the best advice you’ve received? There’s one thing from Exodus in the Bible. Moses is leading the Israelites to the Red Sea and being chased by the Egyptians. He tells his people to “stand still”. In the heat of the moment when they think they’re about to be slaughtered, that message of standing still and being calm resonates a lot with me. It’s relevant to rugby because it’s a sport where everything moves quickly. Being able to collect your thoughts in a game is really important.Who would be your three dream dinner party guests? Disraeli because of how eloquent he was and because I have a bit of a man-crush on him. Ada Lovelace intrigues me; she was the daughter of Byron and produced the mathematics that was the foundation of computer science. This was in the first half of the 19th century, so she was pretty forward-thinking. And I’d have someone American there. Probably Barack Obama.Rising star: Ollie Thorley was named Young Player of the Year at the RPA Awards (Getty Images)If you could be one team-mate, who would you be? It’d be cool to be Ben Morgan. He’s a bit of a freak of nature but has a really good skill-set as well. I like to run into people when the option to run round them isn’t there, so it would be interesting to see what happened if I went in with an extra X amount of kilos.Do you have a hidden talent? People say I know a lot about restaurants, like who owns which brands or chain. It’s a weird superpower I’ve got. TAGS: Gloucester LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Downtime with… Gloucester wing Ollie ThorleyOllie Thorley, 23, is one of eight uncapped players named in England’s 34-strong squad for the 2020 Guinness Six Nations. The explosive Gloucester wing is picking up from last year, when he won the Premiership Young Player of the Season award and trained with England both during the Six Nations and in preparation for the World Cup.This season Thorley has made nine clean breaks and beaten 24 defenders in the Premiership and his eye for an opportunity was best demonstrated in the first of his two tries at Harlequins, when he picked up from a midfield ruck and accelerated to the line, brushing off hooker Elia Elia, almost before Quins knew what was happening.A knee injury towards the end of last season effectively cost him a chance of making Eddie Jones’s squad for Japan 2019, but Thorley is now back and one of only three specialist wings in the squad with Jonny May and Anthony Watson, who both started the World Cup final.RW spoke to Thorley for a Downtime article that was published in our June 2019 edition…Too quick by half: Thorley bursts clear to score the first of his try double at Quins (CameraSport/Getty)What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch? At Sale three years ago, Greig Laidlaw was giving us the pre-match pep talk out on the pitch. Everyone was laughing because he had a big length of tissue roll attached to his boot. It was an unorthodox psyche-up but we ended up winning and Greig was Man of the Match.Who’s the biggest prankster at your club? Fraser Balmain’s up there. He has a quintessential British humour, mixing classic comedy with a bit of darker stuff. His partner-in-crime is Ed Slater.Who would you like to be stuck in a lift with? I feel Theresa May would enjoy a bit of time with the cameras off her face, so she could chill out in there. I’d be happy to help her relax. That sounds dodgy!All smiles: the wing at a pre-season photo-call (Getty)Do you have any phobias? I’m not a massive fan of nasty toes, which you see a lot of in rugby. Specifically the nails. You know, when someone’s had their toenail stood on and it’s all blackened. That creeps me out. My own nails are beautiful.What’s your most embarrassing moment? I was a mascot in the 2006 FA Cup final in Cardiff. I’m a West Ham supporter but I was Liverpool’s mascot. When I was introduced to Prince William, I confessed that I was a West Ham fan. I said, “I can’t wait to get this Liverpool shirt off me.” Steven Gerrard, who had held my hand as we walked out at the start, heard me, the Liverpool players heard me. Everyone was amused but it was pretty embarrassing.I became their mascot as my dad used to be involved in the pub industry and had a friend at Carlsberg (then Liverpool’s sponsors). It was an amazing day and Alan Pardew gave me the West Ham pennant that was carried out.Memory: Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and Prince William at the 2006 FA Cup final (Getty Images)If your house was on fire, what one item would you save? I collect art. I’ve got two sketches by Chris Riddell, an artist who illustrates children’s books, which have a lot of sentimental value to me. So I’d save those. I know technically that’s two items but they’re sort of a pair.What would be your specialist Mastermind subject? I enjoy a good pub quiz. It would probably be an area of geography, like capital cities. Or Victorian history, specifically Benjamin Disraeli and the politics of the time. Or just Disraeli.What’s the silliest thing you’ve bought? A Morris Minor Traveller. Half of the frame is wood and it was slightly terrifying going at any speed above 30mph. If you were in a crash you’d be dust. It was really cool but a ridiculous acquisition. I don’t have it anymore. Break time: Ollie Thorley, on the attack against Wasps, has 11 Premiership tries to his name (Getty Images) center_img A consistent threat in the Premiership, uncapped Gloucester wing Ollie Thorley is part of England’s 2020 Six Nations squad. He talks wooden cars, Moses and a royal confession Do you have any nicknames?The main ones are Thorlo or One-ten. Some people call me one-ten because they say I go 110% in everything. In the England camp they called me Thor. Thor, son of Odin.Any future goals you want to achieve?I’d like to progress and play for England – and not just play but play well.It would be great for Gloucester to keep building and putting pressure on Saracens and Exeter. Gloucester is a rugby-obsessed city, the fans are the best in the league, so doing justice to all that would be an amazing feeling.And outside of rugby? I had a place to read history but because of rugby didn’t take it up. Some form of higher education is important to me. So my next non-rugby goal is sorting out a degree. Powerful: Thorley slips the tackle of Ralph Adams-Hale during a league match against Saracens (Getty)This article originally appeared in the June 2019 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.last_img read more

The City Bridge Trust donates £77,250 to the Pumphouse Education Trust

first_img Howard Lake | 22 January 2008 | News The City of London Corporation’s The City Bridge Trust has made a £77,250 grant to The Pumphouse Education Trust in Southwark. The grant will be made over three years to help with the running costs of an environmental sustainability programme for pre-school and primary school children and their families.In its museum, the Pumphouse hosts an impressive collection of artefacts excavated from the foreshore of the River Thames, dating from Roman times, representing the rich heritage of the area of Rotherhithe and Bermondsey. The building houses the unique exhibition of Peek Frean & Co Ltd 1857 – 1989, further social history exhibitions and opens to a green flag nature reserve. The charity has been awarded previous grants; in 1996 to fund work with children; to pursue intergenerational work in 2002; and most recently in 2003 and 2005, awards granted for a reminiscence project for older people with dementia.The City Bridge Trust has awarded over £200 million to London’s charities and community groups in the last twelve years to help the lives of disabled people, children, young people and older people in London communities, as well as supporting environmental projects and the voluntary and community sector.It is the largest, independent grant making trust in London following an Act of Parliament in 1995 which allowed surplus monies from the ancient trust (originally set up to maintain the five London bridges crossing the Thames into the City) to be spent for the benefit of Londoners, through charitable grant making.The Trust’s £620 million fund was built up over 900 years, originating from ancient taxes imposed on London Bridge.www.bridgehousegrants.org.uk  32 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The City Bridge Trust donates £77,250 to the Pumphouse Education Trust AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Funding About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Supporters demand ‘Justice for Sam Smith!’

first_imgDec. 15 — Transgender activists, family members and supporters came out to show support for Sam Smith in his bid for freedom at a hearing today at Moakley Courthouse in Boston. Smith, a Black prisoner, has been imprisoned by the injustice system for more than 25 years, ever since he was a youth.Smith is fighting for the release of auditory tapes revealing prosecutor James Coffey’s use of bigoted, anti-trans and white supremacist language during his 2001 trial to invalidate and eliminate potential jurors who might have been sympathetic to Smith. The judge cut Coffey off during a rant, resulting in Coffey using a peremptory challenge to eliminate a potential juror.Prosecutors have stated that the tapes are “missing.”  Smith is under no illusion that the tapes will be “found,” especially since Coffey has become a judge himself.  But refusal to turn over the tapes could lead to a retrial and/or freedom for Smith.Smith’s lawyers argue that to deny someone a seat on a jury for being transgender violates the Constitution’s 14th Amendment, which says the State shall not “deny any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Also, Article 12 of the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights prevents the use of a peremptory challenge to remove a juror because of their affiliation with “particular defined groupings in the community.”Supporters will continue to call for “Justice for Sam Smith!” and “Unite to fight racism and anti-LGBTQ bigotry!” To demand a retrial for Sam Smith, call Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey’s office at 617-727-2200.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

France 3 TV crew threatened in video posted online by abductors

Identified by the French government and their employer, France 3 television, only as Hervé and Stéphane, the two journalists have been held hostage since late December.“We are aware that the two French journalists were forced by their abductors to say what they said in the video,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is vital that the French authorities take the execution threats seriously.”The press freedom organisation added: “The blackmail methods used by the Taliban are unacceptable and place the journalists’ families and colleagues in a terrible situation. We reiterate our appeal for their immediate and unconditional release.”The French journalists and their three Afghan assistants, who were working for the France 3 programme “Pièces à conviction,” were kidnapped in Kapisa province on 30 December. As well as for the two journalists, Reporters Without Borders is particularly concerned for their Afghan fixer, Mohammed Reza.The video shows Hervé and Stéphane reading statements in English and French saying they will be executed if the French authorities do not meet the demands of their Taliban abductors. The two journalists, who appeared to have lost weight and seemed very tired, said the Taliban wanted France 3 to broadcast the video.Reading a message in English, Hervé said: “This is message is the last message to the French government.” Speaking from a bed and appearing very nervous, Stéphane read a message addressed directly to French President Nicolas Sarkozy.The messages from the two journalists were followed by a message in Pashto saying: “The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan submitted a list of very ordinary prisoners to the French government for release in exchange for the two French citizens and their Afghan colleagues. But the French government showed no interest, consideration or compassion for the release of its citizens. There is no other option.”The video, which lasts three minutes, was posted on Islamist websites yesterday. An earlier video was released by the abductors in February.
