Culinary May term

first_imgUniversity of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences students know a lot about the science of food and how it’s grown, but often less about the art of cuisine.The College of Coastal Georgia (CCG) in Brunswick, Georgia, is now offering CAES students – and other students in Georgia undergraduate or graduate programs – a crash course in the culinary arts to accompany their degree.CCG’s one-month “Intensive Culinary Experience” (ICE) will fit into UGA’s May term and provide students with an inside look at the basics of culinary theory and technique. Students will learn from the instructors at CCG’s highly sought-after culinary arts program.“The ICE program is a great complement to our food science students’ learning experience. Many of our students seek careers in food product development, so the culinary arts perfectly matches their scientific knowledge of food chemistry, microbiology and processing,” said Jose Reyes, associate professor and undergraduate coordinator in the CAES Department of Food Science and Technology.“This program was initially conceived for CCG culinary arts graduates to transfer to UGA and get a food science degree, but it quickly became obvious that our food science and other CAES students would also greatly benefit from it. Dean William Mounts, from CCG, has tirelessly championed this and we look forward to having the first group of CAES students participate in it in May 2017.”In November, Chef Steve Ingersoll came to the CAES Department of Food Science and Technology for a culinary demonstration and to tempt hungry food science students to go to Brunswick this May.“I think it helps to see how their products are going to be used in the kitchen, and it may spur them to develop new products or modify existing products so they work better,” Ingersoll said. “Plus, it’s just a great way to see how it works. To me, it seems a person in food science should know how to cook.”The ICE program features an accelerated culinary curriculum that includes theory, cooking techniques, knife skills and pastry baking. The program is open to all undergraduate or graduate students who feel that culinary knowledge would benefit their career paths.Students who participate in the program will enroll in CCG as transient students and will receive four credit hours that will fully transfer to UGA.For more information about the ICE program, email CCG’s Walter Wright at wwright@ccga.edu. The deadline to apply to the ICE program is April 1, but space is limited, so applying early is encouraged.CCG is a public, four-year institution located in Brunswick, about 15 minutes from the beaches of St. Simons Island, Georgia. Prospective students can visit www.ccga.edu for more information.For more information about the Department of Food Science and Technology at the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, visit www.foodscience.caes.uga.edu.last_img read more

Optimizing your mobile efforts

first_img continue reading » Being able to text clients is an essential tool that helps maximize efficiency for your business and streamlines your communications. In a recent Hearsay Systems study, results show that 98% of texts from advisors are opened and 90% are read within the first three minutes. As successful as texting has become, it’s also essential to make sure all texting is done securely and compliantly. Here are a few key factors to building a compliant texting program:Ensure message capture and retention. Per FINRA SEA Rule 17a-4, all texts with clients and prospects should be captured, time-stamped, logged, and archived for e-discovery. Any activity by assistants, admins, and supervision teams, such as message deletion, should also be logged.Keep communications “fair and balanced.” Any information sent should follow this rule to prevent unsuitable or questionable messages from being sent. Having an up-to-date lexicon of restricted keywords can help flag possible issues and reduce the amount of time spent manually reviewing messages. Smart blocking is another preventative measure that can help stop the transmission of critical or sensitive information.

Gobernador Wolf: 12 condados más pasan a la fase amarilla el 22 de mayo

first_img May 15, 2020 Gobernador Wolf: 12 condados más pasan a la fase amarilla el 22 de mayo Español,  Press Release,  Public Health El Gobernador Tom Wolf anunció hoy que otros 12 condados de Pennsylvania pasarán a la fase amarilla de reapertura a las 12:01 a.m. del viernes 22 de mayo. Esos condados incluyen a Adams, Beaver, Carbon, Columbia, Cumberland, Juniata, Mifflin, Perry, Susquehanna, Wyoming, Wayne y York. Veinticuatro condados pasaron a la fase amarilla de reapertura el 8 de mayo y otros 13 pasaron a la fase amarilla en el día de hoy.Con estos 12 condados adicionales, habrá un total de 49 condados en fase amarilla. Los 18 condados restantes están en fase roja.“A través de nuestros esfuerzos de distanciamiento social, no solo hemos revertido la trayectoria del crecimiento exponencial de los casos nuevos, sino que lo hemos reducido a la mitad”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Y algunos de los condados que pasarán a la fase amarilla la semana próxima eliminaron las inquietudes que teníamos hace solo dos semanas. Por lo tanto, siga esforzándose para que podamos continuar sumando condados a la lista de aquellos que se encuentran en la fase amarilla. Gracias nuevamente por su paciencia y su gran esfuerzo”.Ayer, el Gobernador Wolf y la Secretaria de Salud Dra. Rachel Levine enmendaron las órdenes sobre la fase amarilla para incluir 13 condados que pasaron hoy a la fase amarilla. Esos condados incluyen Allegheny, Armstrong, Bedford, Blair, Butler, Cambria, Fayette, Fulton, Greene, Indiana, Somerset, Washington y Westmoreland.Las órdenes de fase roja de quedarse en casa permanecen vigentes hasta el 4 de junio, pero eso no significa que otros condados no pasarán a la fase amarilla antes de esa fecha.El plan de reapertura prioriza la salud y el bienestar de los residentes de Pennsylvania al usar una combinación de factores para determinar cuánto movimiento puede tolerar una ubicación antes de que el nuevo coronavirus de 2019 se convierta en una amenaza. Incluye las métricas desarrolladas en colaboración con la Carnegie Mellon University en Pittsburgh que se darán a conocer dos veces por semana.Wolf destacó que este plan no es un camino que tenga un solo sentido. El estado supervisa detenidamente a los 24 condados en la fase amarilla y volverá a imponer restricciones si surge el peligro. Si el recuento de casos nuevos comienza a aumentar en un área, será necesario imponer restricciones para evitar que los centros médicos locales se saturen. Por lo tanto, los residentes de Pennsylvania deben continuar tomando buenas decisiones.Lea el plan del Gobernador Wolf para PA aquí.Lea la guía empresarial aquí.Lea la guía de los CDC para centros de cuidado de niños aquí.Lea las preguntas frecuentes aquí.View this information in English.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Investment professionals must focus on clients over profits – CFA Institute

first_imgInvestment management professionals should be less focused on their employers’ profits and more on solving their clients’ problems, the head of the CFA Institute has said.Chief executive and president Paul Smith said both investment and asset managers should focus on providing client services rather than the overall success of the company.Smith, who has led the institute since January, said the investment industry also suffered from a lack of trust from the public, as “there is not enough focus on properly pricing products”, or on investor protection.“In the same way the main focus for doctors is their patient’s health, the goal of investment management professionals should be solving their clients’ problems, rather than maximising profits for their firms,” he said. The CFA Institute provides education for investment/asset managers and has drafted a code of ethics charter holders are told to adhere to when managing money for clients.“We need better-structured products and better incentives,” Smith said, adding that fee structures are skewed towards the interests of managers.He also believes the industry has failed to present itself correctly to regulators, and that this will drive more regulation for asset managers.“We have not set the bar high enough,” he said. “As a result, the drift of regulation is such that making money will become more difficult.”Smith did concede that if profit-making became harder for asset managers and the broader financial services industry, the pace of global economic growth may slow down.He also raised concerns about the image of the industry to graduates, as well as gender balance and diversity within the industry.The institute said it wanted to focus on bringing greater gender diversity into the industry in the long term, citing increasing evidence that diversity within asset management firms may be beneficial to end investors.The investment management industry, Smith added, is resisting modernisation and the introduction of technology overall. “Regulators should enable the adoption of technology,” he said.last_img read more

Lampard, Ancelotti call for VAR ‘reflection’

first_imgFrank Lampard called for a “big reflection” on VAR at the end of the season after another controversial incident involving the technology in the midweek Premier League fixtures. Chelsea boss Frank Lampard Tottenham were controversially denied an equaliser against Sheffield United on Thursday when Harry Kane’s goal was chalked off for a dubious handball against Lucas Moura. In a Premier League season marred by debatable calls, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, whose side lost 3-1, said he feared for the future of football if the system were not addressed. Chelsea boss Lampard, who played under Mourinho as a player at Stamford Bridge, said the goal should have stood. “It was certainly one where common sense could have been involved but if the rule book states something, then the handball is given,” he told reporters on Friday. “We need a big reflection at the end of the season. “VAR has improved us in ways but there are ways to improve it and I think a collective sit-down at the end of the season with everybody – referees, managers, players, anybody involved in football that loves the game can have an input to try and get it closer to where we want to get it to.” Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti also called for a review of the rules. “It was a really, really complicated and difficult decision,” he said. Loading… “I think the decision they have made comes from the rules that there are in place in this moment and so maybe at the end of this season we can think if it’s possible to change this type of rule but in this moment it’s like this and we have to respect the rules.” Chelsea’s defeat at West Ham ended a run of three successive Premier League wins and means victory against struggling Watford at Stamford Bridge is vital in the race for Champions League spots. Chelsea, in fourth spot, are just two points ahead of Manchester United and Wolves. Lampard challenged his players to restore the mentality that underpinned the good run that preceded Wednesday’s lacklustre 3-2 loss. “Every game now is going to be tough,” said Lampard. Tottenham striker Harry Kane reacts after having a goal disallowed by VAR Read Also: Former Barcelona president worried about Lionel Messi exit “If we go into it with the right attitude that we approached games like Aston Villa and Manchester City, and Everton and Liverpool before the break, then I have real belief in us. “It’s about getting our mentality right, keeping freshness in the players between games and having a real desire to achieve want we want.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more
