McVitie’s rolls out fully coated Digestives and Hobnobs

first_imgSource: PladisPladis is looking to tap into demand for premium treats with the launch of fully coated Digestives and Hobnobs.Dubbed ‘The Fully Coated One’, the NPD sees the McVitie’s core lines enrobed in milk chocolate. They’ll be available from January across supermarkets, convenience retailers and wholesale with an rsp of £1.79.The move elevates the biscuits from everyday treats to special ones, said Pladis. It added that the NPD would help retailers unlock incremental sales and encourage shoppers to trade up, thereby adding value to the category.“With the launch of our new, premium collection, we’re building on the momentum we’ve generated for the two brands – which were up by 35% between March and September this year – and delivering an extra special version of the biscuits consumers already love,” said Emma Stowers, brand director for McVitie’s at Pladis UK&I.“We’re confident the McVitie’s ‘Fully Coated’ range will be well-received in the market, particularly because this time, we’re making two of our best-loved biscuits the focus. Given current circumstances, we also expect more consumers to prioritise affordable, at-home treats as we move into 2021.”McVitie’s has rolled out several new variants of Digestives and Hobnobs throughout the year, including the limited-edition dessert-inspired British icons range, which included strawberry cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding variants, as well as VIBs. The latter was highlighted by British Baker as one of the top bakery launches of 2020.last_img read more

FIBA freezes 3×3 rankings

first_img– Guyana ranked 152BASKETBALL’s global governing body, FIBA yesterday announced that it will freeze the FIBA 3×3 Individual World, Team and Federation Rankings in all categories.The FIBA 3×3 Rankings, where Guyana is ranked at 152 in the men’s division and unranked for the women’s, are based on the nine best performances of the players in the previous 12 months.April, according to FIBA, traditionally marks the start of the professional 3×3 seasons. However, due to the Coronavirus outbreak and in order to protect the health and safety of players, coaches, officials and fans, FIBA competitions have been suspended since March 13, 2020.In light of this suspension, the basketball body will freeze all rankings as of April 1, 2020 until the suspension of competitions is lifted by FIBA or until any later date so communicated by FIBA.Ranking points will still be awarded for events taking place during this period but will only count towards the rankings – for the usual 12-month period – when rankings are unfrozen.The lifespan of the ranking points awarded for events that took place prior to the freeze will be extended by the duration of the freeze. However, this extension shall not exceed the date of October 1, 2021.The freezing of the ranking is undertaken with the full support of the 3×3 athletes of the FIBA Players’ Commission, with whom FIBA will continue to liaise before the rankings are unfrozen.FIBA said they will continue to monitor the situation on a regular basis and will evaluate the options for the continuation or not of the respective competitions, when and if the situation allows.The FIBA 3×3 Rankings are a key component of the 3×3 basketball system; federations qualify to national team competitions based on the Federation Ranking and teams are granted privileged access to the professional circuit based on the Team Ranking.Exciting, urban and innovative, 3×3 is inspired by several forms of ‘street-ball’ played worldwide and is considered the world’s number one urban team sport. Steered by FIBA, games see two teams of three players face off on a basketball half-court.It was played successfully for the first time in international competition at the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore and since then has benefited from the launch of a yearly city-based FIBA 3×3 World Tour and national-team FIBA 3×3 World & Continental Cups.On 9 June 2017, 3×3 was added to the Olympic Program, starting from the Tokyo Olympic Games.Wilson is the Global Ball Partner and Tissot the Official Timekeeper of FIBA 3×3.last_img read more

ESPN3 Drake recorded back-to-back shutouts in consecutive MVC matches (Valparaiso, Illinois State), it is the first time this has happened since the 2015 season when that team ended the regular season with three-straight clean sheets. Sophomore goalkeeper Kelsie Stone (Hoffman Estates, Ill.) had seven saves in the two wins, including some key saves versus the Redbirds. Drake (5-7-0, 2-0-0 MVC), Loyola (5-5-1, 2-0-0 MVC) and Evansville (4-7-1, 2-0-0 MVC) are at the top of the MVC standings after two weeks of league play.

Pardon, Your Worldview Is Showing

first_img(Visited 81 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 The most dangerous ideology is the one that doesn’t acknowledge its worldview assumptions.Several articles from the science news were partly successful noting the risk of assumptions in scientific theories. Unfortunately, none of them recognized the fundamental assumption of naturalism.Time for one universe: Adam Frank, writing frankly for NPR’s 13.7 Cosmos & Culture blog, thinks physics may have gotten “something really important really wrong.” That something important is the idea of a multiverse, a concept that cosmologist Lee Smolin championed but is now abandoning in his new book with philosopher Roberto Unger, The Singular Universe and the Reality of Time. Frank makes this amazing statement that undermines the popular notion of science’s triumphal march of progress:When the path towards progress in a field becomes muddied, the best response may be to step away from all the technical specifics that make up day-to-day practice and begin pulling up the floorboards. In other words, rather than continuing to push on the science, it may be best to ask about the unspoken philosophies supporting that research effort.Based on a workshop he attended organized by Smolin and Unger, he feels more than ever that string theory and multiverse theory have led scientists astray. The bullet points from the conference: (1) There is only one universe (which should be intuitive from the definition of the word), (2) Time is real, and (3) Mathematics is selectively real. “Taken together, these three claims constitute a significant departure from mainstream ideas in physics,” Frank says. Smolin and Unger recognize the importance recognizing the philosophical underpinnings of science. The new book “constitutes just an outline — a beginning — for a new approach to physics,” but does it go far enough? Is philosophy itself derivable from matter and energy in time?Human exceptionalism: Could we upload a brain to a computer? asks Richard Jones (U of Sheffield) in The Conversation. And if we could, should we? Jones takes a historical look at transhumanism up through modern ideas and on through future trends. A brain is more than molecules, he says with logical finesse, even if it were possible to replicate its wiring diagram:This points us towards a deeper conceptual difficulty. Just because we can simulate some aspects of the way the brain works, that doesn’t necessarily mean we are completely emulating a real brain, or indeed a mind. No conceivable increase in computer power will allow us to simulate the brain at the level of individual molecules. So brain emulation would only be possible if we could abstract its digital, logical operations from the messy molecular level detail.It’s as hopeless as trying to deduce the logic of a computer by watching the electrons flowing. Smith does a good job debunking transhumanism, even to the point of calling it dangerous or at least a distortion of science’s priorities. But he also says, “But no-one designed a brain – it evolved – so there is no reason to expect any simple mapping of its operations to digital logic.” Pardon, your materialistic worldview is showing. And it is self-refuting. By Smith’s own statement, if his own brain evolved without design, there is no reason to expect it to be logical.Explaining right but not left: Simon Oxehham, writing for New Scientist, purports to explain “Brexit, Trump, and the rise of the far right.” As he points to immigration and other social movements, relying on explanations by sociologists, he depicts conservatives as driven by emotion, as if he stands on a dispassionate higher plane. Example: “Instead, people find ways to explain what is happening around them that lay the blame with someone else.” In this, he betrays a severe case of the Yoda Complex. Could not a conservative write a mirror-image piece (if New Scientist would print it) about the rise of the far left? How would a neutral observer determine who is left, and who is right?Car evolution: Two scientists mentioned by Science Daily used Darwinian evolutionary theory to analyze the evolution of automobiles (which everyone knows are intelligently designed). This is a turbo-charged case of Berra’s Blunder, explains Evolution News & Views. Readers may wish to consider whether natural selection is a case of circular reasoning, as Stephen Talbott argues for the Nature Institute. Talbott is neither creationist or intelligent design advocate, but he recognizes the problem that many evolutionary explanations amount to little more than storytelling and tautologies.What is matter? Never mind: A refreshing trend away from storytelling in scientific publishing is being undertaken by a new journal called simply, Matters. “Stories can wait. Science can’t” announces the explanation page, “Why Matters.” This journal promises to publish single observations from anyone who can show credible evidence subject to triple-blind peer review. An embedded video shows how traditional publishing stifles the lone scientist wishing to make public an important observation by forcing him or her to make up a story that fits the consensus. Unfortunately, the video misrepresents the Galileo Affair, portraying church fathers with “I love Jesus” tatts stomping on his neck. With that kind of misunderstanding of history, will Matters stifle a submission with a credible observation of design, like powered flight?To begin to unravel the stranglehold that materialism maintains on “science,” one needs to point out its worldview dependencies. This gets the materialist off his pedestal, so that real dialogue can begin. Then, one needs to proceed by showing how the materialistic worldview is self-defeating, because it relies on concepts that cannot be reduced to be particles. Those concepts, further, must be non-evolving, else they become unworthy of trust.Your job is to remove the Yoda Complex mask from the materialist. It acts like one of the new-fangled Virtual Reality headsets, creating universes the wearer can adapt with his own actions. Sooner or later, the wearer bumps into an object in the real world. When you see a scientist acting strangely with his Yoda headset on, a few well-placed obstacles can help bring him to his senses, forcing him to take the mask off by himself. Then, smile and talk to him about reality. Expect this to take a little time during the transition from Storyland, which just looked so real to him. It can be jolting.last_img read more

Big Ten Network Ranks The Top 100 Players In The Conference

first_imgJ.T. Barrett #16 of the Ohio State Buckeyes throws a passl during the game against the Indiana Hoosiers at Memorial Stadium.BLOOMINGTON, IN – AUGUST 31: J.T. Barrett #16 of the Ohio State Buckeyes throws a passl during the game against the Indiana Hoosiers at Memorial Stadium on August 31, 2017 in Bloomington, Indiana. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)Big Ten Media Days are currently taking place in Chicago this week, meaning the offseason is finally over, the preseason is here and the season is soon to come. In anticipation of the start of the 2016 season, the Big Ten Network has ranked the top 100 players in the conference. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, Michigan State has the most players in the top 100. There are 15 Spartans in BTN’s top 100, one more than Ohio State. Here are the teams with the most players in the top 100:Michigan State – 15Ohio State – 14Michigan, Nebraska – 10 Penn State, Iowa – 9The top 10 players in the conference:10. TE Jake Butt, Michigan. Arguably the best tight end in the nation, Butt hauled in 51 passes for 654 yards and three scores last season, and should be even better for an exceptional Wolverine offense. 9. OL Dan Feeney, Indiana. This guy is a powerful force at the point of attack, he plays with a defensive mentality, and he’s a flat-out nasty. 8. LB Anthony Walker, Northwestern. Only three players in the nation had more tackles for loss (20.5) a season ago, and only two players in the Big Ten registered more tackles (122). 7. LB Raekwon McMillan, Ohio State. A likely future All-American and first-round selection, McMillan is a classic linebacker who can play with power and speed. 6. RB Saquon Barkley, Penn State. A freakish athlete, Barkley set the Penn State freshman rushing record (1,076 yards), all while missing two games and receiving one carry in the season opener. 5. DB Jourdan Lewis, Michigan. He defended 20 passes last season to emerge as one of the nation’s premier shutdown corners. 4. DT Malik McDowell, Michigan State. A dominant interior lineman with a knack for making huge plays, McDowell will anchor what should be an outstanding Michigan State defense in 2016. 3. DB/LBJabrill Peppers, Michigan. Cornerback. Safety. Linebacker. Even receiver. It doesn’t matter where No. 5 lines up, he’s a supreme talent who’s as “much-watch” as anyone in the nation. 2. DB Desmond King, Iowa. The reigning Jim Thorpe winner set a school record with eight interceptions last season, and enters the season as the nation’s top defensive back. 1. QB J.T. Barrett, Ohio State. He will be looking to recapture his 2014 form, when he was the top signal-caller in the Big Ten as a redshirt freshman. Barrett is a deadly combination of athletic ability and savvy who is the perfect fit for this offense. And he’s a great leader. You can view the full rankings here.[BTN]last_img read more

Elizabeth Arden And Reese Witherspoon March On For Women

first_imgToday, Elizabeth Arden announces the launch of the March On campaign, featuring a limited edition lipstick, in the brand’s signature Red Door Red shade and signed by Reese Witherspoon, which will be sold globally with 100% of the proceeds donated to UN Women.Elizabeth Arden March On Campaign Print Advertisement featuring Reese WitherspoonAn early advocate of women’s rights, Elizabeth Arden famously provided red lipsticks to the suffragettes marching on Fifth Avenue in 1912. Wearing red lipstick, which wasn’t a socially acceptable practice at the time, became a symbol of the women’s movement and has remained an icon of female power to this day. As the women’s movement remains in force over 100 years later, Elizabeth Arden continues its fearless female founder’s legacy of advocating for women and honoring their ability to be forces of change in the world with the introduction of the March On campaign.The program, in partnership with the brand’s Storyteller-in-Chief and female advocate Reese Witherspoon, is designed to celebrate women’s achievements, encourage women to support other women and includes a pledge to donate $1 million to UN Women in support of their work to advance women’s issues worldwide. The limited edition March On red lipstick serves as a powerful symbol of unity and advocacy and invites women around the world to signal their support for one another.“Founded by a woman dedicated to helping women, we are inspired by our history to help change the future. March On honors this legacy not only with a philanthropic donation, but also with a campaign that asks women to unite to help each other achieve their full potential,” explains Kara Langan, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing, Elizabeth Arden. “Whether by creating female-centric support systems or propelling each other in their professional lives, when women stand together they can enact great change in the world.”“There is real strength and camaraderie in March On and the feeling that we are in this together. By bringing UN Women, Elizabeth Arden and women everywhere together we can help change women’s lives around the world for the better,” explains Reese Witherspoon. “I have the unique privilege to not only tell these women’s stories through my production company as well as my relationship with Elizabeth Arden, but I also get to encourage them to share their own stories through March On.”“A prominent entrepreneur and supporter of women’s rights, Elizabeth Arden herself is an inspirational example of the impact women can make on the world. We are pleased to embark upon a multi-year, worldwide partnership with the iconic brand to help advocate for women and girls and make their equal participation a reality,” says Tunay Firat, OIC Head of Strategic Private Sector Partnerships, UN Women. “The funds raised by Elizabeth Arden through the March On program will help strengthen UN Women’s global programming, which will lead directly to the increased responsiveness and sustainability of field-level activities.”The ongoing integrated marketing campaign will include social content, public relations, in-store activations and advertising featuring Reese Witherspoon, in addition to the limited edition lipstick. The March On Beautiful Color Lipstick in Red Door Red will be available beginning March 2018 for $26.50 on ElizabethArden.com and in department stores globally.last_img read more
