first_imgGb Plange is helping craft bakers overcome the challenges of producing Tiger bread and rolls with an innovative new product.Its Tiger Paste has been developed to give breads a crusty flavour, aroma and attractive shiny appearance. Users only need to add water to the mix.General manager Marie Parnell said: “Tiger Bread has proved to be a bit of a headache for our industry; historically a fat-based liquid product or a powder-based concentrate was used to top the bread, but the fat-based products don’t give a good crust and can be expensive to use, while the powder-based products can be rather lacking in flavour. We hope this innovative new product will enable more bakers to produce this style of speciality bread, which presents a premium profit opportunity.”Tiger Paste is available in 12kg bags and has a shelf-life of eight months.last_img read more

first_imgZurich, Switzerland | AFP | FIFA president Gianni Infantino on Friday said that “no match” is worth “risking a single human life” and that world football’s governing body would be able to help financially national federations during the coronavirus pandemic.The majority of top football leagues and international competitions have been suspended due to the COVID-19 outbreak.Infantino insisted that games would not resume until it was safe.“Our first priority, our principle, the one we will use for our competitions and encourage everyone to follow is that health comes first,” he said in a video message.“I cannot stress this enough. No match, no competition, no league is worth risking a single human life.”The German Bundesliga reportedly could restart behind closed doors in May, with players already back in training, while other leagues could also resume in the summer.“It would be more than irresponsible to force competitions to resume if things are not 100% safe,” added Infantino. “If we have to wait a little longer we must do so. It’s better to wait a little bit longer than to take any risks.”Infantino said that national football associations which are struggling financially would receive help from FIFA’s emergency relief fund.FIFA last week postponed all international matches scheduled for June.“We are today in a very strong financial situation,” Infantino said.“But our reserves are not FIFA’s money. It is football’s money. So when football is in need, we must think what we can do to help… It is our responsibility and our duty.” FIFA president Gianni Infantinocenter_img Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgBy The Nelson Daily SportsIt was a survival of the fittest for the L.V. Rogers Bombers.Sarah Fuhr scored 19 points and Kiandra McLaren added 16 as shorthanded LVR outlasted the Fernie Falcons in the final of the Bomber Classic High School Girl’s Basketball Tournament Saturday at the Hangar.LVR, entering the season with only nine players, played the game with six with three reserves sitting on the bench with injury. Guards Brittany Wheeler and Jessica Carmichael and forward Samantha Einarson all sat out the final.“I was just happy to get through the game without anyone else getting hurt,” said Bomber coach Bruce Fuhr. “When players are seeing that many minutes, fatigue can set in and injuries can result.”“I just hope we can get a few of our injured players back for the (league) game in Trail (against Crowe Hawks) Tuesday,” he added.LVR did not have the greatest start in the championship contest as the squad missed numerous easy shots inside. The miscues allowed the tenacious Falcons to grab an 11-10 after one quarter.In the second, the Bombers finally got its up-tempo game in gear out scoring Fernie 18-8 led by Fuhr, who had eight assist in the game, with eight points. LVR opened the quarter on an 11-0 run, sparked by a two-one-two zone press.In the second half McLaren got into the act offensively scoring 12 points to lead LVR offensively.Rachel Moulson had 12 rebounds with Emily Klapstein had seven boards.“Kiandra was one of our better players this weekend,” said Fuhr. “She really ran the floor well and took the ball to the hoop with aggression throughout the tournament.”LVR opened the tournament Friday by pounding the Prince Charles Comets of Creston 54-21. Fuhr paced the Bomber attack with 23 points, including four three-pointers. McLaren added 14 points.The Bombers then played one if its best games of the season dumping Fernie 74-30. The Bombers jumped out to a 13-6 lead in the first quarter, but really put the game away with a 23-4 third quarter rout.Fuhr led the scoring with 19 points. Kyndle Doolan added 14 along with 11 rebounds while Melinda Halstead had 10. Moulson also had 11 boards for LVR.The Bombers now travel to Trail Tuesday to meet the J.

first_imgThe Penticton native spent the 2011/12 season with the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League’s Osoyoos Coyotes, where he led the team in scoring and was honoured by the league as it’s Top Defenceman.The 20-year old was an offensive force for the Coyotes with 18 goals and 74 points in 46 regular season games, leading all KIJHL blueliners by a 26-point margin.He also added 11 points in six playoff contests. Crawford spent the previous two seasons playing with the BCHL’s  Merritt Centennials, where he picked up 20 points and 97 penalty minutes over 90 games.He suited up for the Penticton Vees in four games during their 2011/12 campaign and joined the club in Humboldt, SK for the 2012 RBC Cup, which the Vees captured with a finals win over the Woodstock Slammers.Crawford is the Saints’ fifth committed defenceman for the fall, joining Brett Kipling (Melville, SJHL), Dylan Smith (Richmond, PIJHL), Lucas Hildebrand (Revelstoke, KIJHL) and Mark Strachan (Kimberley, KIJHL).Returning blueliners Justin Sotkowy and Sandro Moser finished third and fourth in BCIHL scoring by defencemen last season. “I’m excited to come to Selkirk College and I’m looking forward to being a part of an up-and-coming hockey program and living in a great town,” said Crawford, who lists his puck-handling, hard shot and offensive instincts amongst his strengths.”My goals are to be successful in my studies, meet a bunch of new people and make a run at a championship.” Also committed to Selkirk for the fall are forwards Logan Proulx (Cowichan Valley, BCHL), Thomas Hardy (Aldergrove, PIJHL), Jackson Garrett (Comox Valley, VIJHL), Stephen Saretsky (Wellington, OJHL), Scott Swiston (Creston, KIJHL), Connor McLaughlin (Fernie, KIJHL), Cole Thomson (Kerry Park, VIJHL), Matthew Luongo (Aldergrove, PIJHL), Cody Fidgett (Delta, PIJHL), John Proctor (Delta, PIJHL), Mason Spear (Beaver Valley, KIJHL), Connor Stephens (Victoria, VIJHL), Brodie Gibbon (Oceanside, VIJHL) and Jared Seutter (Chase, KIJHL) and goaltenders Alex Sirard (Pilot Butte, PJHL) and Stephen Wolff (Oceanside, VIJHL). The Selkirk College blueline core is nicely filling out after the coaching staff inked former KIJHL and BCHL grad Kameran Crawford to the roster of the 2012/13 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League squad.”We’re thrilled that Kam decided to begin his college hockey career at Selkirk, particularly given the number of programs in Canada and the United States that were after him,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”Kam adds size, mobility and skill to an already talented group of defencemen, and he should be an impact player in the BCIHL from day one.”last_img read more
