first_imgBurton’s Foods, baker of Jammie Dodgers and Maryland Cookies, has become the latest supplier to remove hydrogenated vegetable oil from all of its products.The company has pledged that its portfolio of over 100 products will be free from artificial trans fats from now on.Retailers Asda, Boots, Co-op, Marks & Spencer, Iceland, Sainsbury’s Tesco and Waitrose have already committed to remove industrial trans fats from own-brand lines by the end of 2007 at the latest, through trade body the British Retail Consortium.”We recognised the need to take action over trans fats and are pleased to be able to reassure consumers by removing hydrogenated fats from all our products,” said Paul Kitchener, chief executive at Burton’s Foods (pictured).”Taking a proactive approach to balanced, healthy eating, at the same time as producing biscuits that consumers enjoy is crucial to us. We are extremely proud of our bakery heritage, which goes back over 70 years. Our promise is that we will only ever use ingredients that are essential to the baking of our snacks.”In recent years, trans fats have risen to the top of the food and health agenda. A number of studies have linked them to coronary heart disease.In December 2006, New York City’s Board of Health banned trans fats from the city’s restaurants. Restaurants will be banned from using most frying oils and all foods containing trans fats by July 2008.A similar ban is being proposed in Chicago, in the state of Illinois; other cities may follow suit.last_img read more

first_imgRestrictions on the import of most species of oak into England have been introduced as part of new regulations to protect native trees from the threat of Oak Processionary Moth (OPM)The new regulations ban the movement of certain oak trees into the UK’s OPM Protected Zone (an area of the EU declared free of the pest) unless specific conditions are met. They cover both imports from overseas and movement of trees from areas of the country where OPM is already present – in London and surrounding counties.The measures cover all oaks (Quercus) – with the exception of cork oak (Quercus suber) – which have a girth of 8cm or more at 1.2 metres above the root collar and are imported from either the EU or a third country or moving into the Protected Zone from other parts of England. This is because such trees represent the greatest likelihood of introducing OPM.The regulations apply to all businesses which import and move oak trees.Defra Chief Plant Health Officer Nicola Spence said: That trees have been produced in nurseries which, along with their vicinity, have been found free from OPM on the basis of official inspections carried out as close as practically possible to their movement and official surveys of the nurseries and their vicinity have been carried out at appropriate times since the beginning of the last complete cycle of vegetation to detect larvae and other symptoms of OPM; That trees have been grown throughout their life in a site with complete physical protection against the introduction of OPM and have been inspected at appropriate times and found to be free. For more information about OPM, including a map of the affected areas, visit the Forestry Commission website People are also urged to report sightings of OPM to the Forestry Commission’s Tree Alert with a precise description of the tree’s location. OPM caterpillars feed on oak leaves and can increase trees’ vulnerability to attack by other pests and diseases, making them less able to withstand adverse weather conditions, such as drought and floods.The Forestry Commission, councils and land managers tackle the pest which affects Greater London and several surrounding counties with an annual control programme of tree treatment.The new restrictions follow the launch of the Government’s first Tree Health Resilience Strategy in May which pledged tough action to protect the nation’s trees from pests, diseases and climate change. A key element of the strategy is the Action Oak campaign which seeks to protect the UK’s 121 million oak trees for future generations.The new OPM legislation is published on hereNotes to editors: That trees have been grown throughout their life in places of production in countries in which OPM is not known to occur; That trees have been grown throughout their life in a protected zone which is recognised as such for OPM or in an area free from OPM established by the national plant protection organisation in accordance with ISPM No. 4; Protecting our country from tree pests and diseases is vital to safeguard our environment, economy and our health. Through investment, research and legislation we will continue to help protect our precious oak trees for years to come. The new legislation prohibits the movement of oak trees, with a girth of 8cm or more at 1.2 metres above the root collar, into the UK’s OPM protected zone unless one of these specific conditions are met: That is why we are introducing tighter restrictions on the importation of oak trees to England, and the movement of oak trees out of certain parts of South East England which are infested with OPM. All oak trees moving into and within the OPM protected zone must already be accompanied by a plant passport regardless of the size of the consignment. And all landings of oak plants in England must be pre-notified to the plant health authorities.last_img read more

first_img Remembering Harvard The darkest hour A man is lost in thought, unable to read past the Boston Globe’s front page following the assassination of President Kennedy, 1963. © 1964, Harvard Yearbook Publications, Inc. She remembers the cultural aspects from that time too. “Women were not allowed inside of Lamont,” she said. If a woman then wanted to check out a book, she had to find a man to get it for her. There were other challenges for Radcliffe College students, such as not being able to easily meet with their tutors who lived in the Houses. The dorms housed only men, so access was limited.Over the next decade, as Harvard and Radcliffe began to merge, women got to use Lamont and moved into the Houses. But the changes, however equitable, also meant that Radcliffe lost its unique identity as a women’s college, which Maher said was partly lamentable.“The way that Harvard and other male institutions responded to the women’s movement was by, quote-unquote, letting women into their institutions,” said Maher.Ruth Purtilo, M.T.S. ’75, Ph.D. ’79, was involved in the feminist movement at Harvard during the ’70s, and advocated for equal pay for Harvard faculty and staff. She remembers that she and other female students sometimes blew kazoos during lectures every time a professor said the words “him” or “mankind.”Enjoying a tea in the Rock Café at the Harvard Divinity School (HDS), the 73-year-old HDS alumna laughed and said, “We were doing some outrageous things. Some of us were very angry. I was probably less angry, though.”Purtilo also remembered the day she and her dorm mates invited celebrity chef Julia Child to their place for dinner. “She lived two blocks away, and when she said yes, we suddenly asked ourselves, ‘What are we going to feed Julia Child?’” Calling home to collect recipes, Purtilo said they settled on chicken Monterey and Child loved it. Purtilo said her floor also had famed composer and pianist Leonard Bernstein ’39 over for dinner. “It was a time of great informality and meeting interesting people at Harvard,” she said.Agreeing that his time at Harvard was also marked by informality and interesting people, Alexander Moore ’58 said that some of his most enjoyable undergraduate experiences were dining at Lowell House. Describing the typical meal at Lowell in the 1950s, Moore said, “One grabbed a plastic plate … divided into pie-shaped compartments. Servers scooped out generous helpings and, behold, a complete and generous meal appeared in this triumph of modernist design.”Moore said that the conversations, especially after dinner, with fellow students and professors were often fascinating. Students discussed classes that excited them, but foreign affairs were another major topic. “Back then we were in the throes of the Cold War, and the Harvard professoriate, with its Russian Studies Center, was right at the center of U.S. strategy,” Moore said.Moore also remembered a strict dress code: Dining in all the Houses was jacket and tie. Students — himself included — tended to prefer Harris Tweed jackets from the Harvard Coop.“A jacket and tie were commonplace all around Harvard in the 1950s,” remembers Noam Chomsky, who was not a Harvard undergrad but was a member of the Harvard Society of Fellows from 1951 to 1955. “They used to joke that you can get into the House dining rooms without pants, but you had to have a jacket and tie,” he said from his office at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.Vivid memories for Ruth Purtilo, M.T.S. ’75, Ph.D. ’79, included participating in the feminist movement and inviting Julia Child to dinner. “When she said yes, we suddenly asked ourselves, ‘What are we going to feed Julia Child?’”Chomsky said that if he had to define the culture of Harvard in the 1950s in a word, it would be “anglophile.”“I remember meeting people at Harvard who I thought were English, but who never left the United States,” he said. “Their clothes, accents, and mannerisms were mimicking some version of Oxford or Cambridge high table.”Chomsky said that social class was a big deal at Harvard during the 1950s. He told a story of a gifted graduate student who came from a lower-middle-class Boston family and spoke with a “lower-class accent.” When he later became a Harvard professor and tried to get tenure, Chomsky said he couldn’t get a recommendation from the faculty. “Class distinctions were rigid back then, but that is thankfully all gone today,” he said.Over pizza at a Harvard Square hangout, Ayodeji Ogunnaike ’10, Ph.D. candidate and senior tutor of Pforzheimer House, said he has seen significant changes at Harvard over the past 10 years. In 2006, for instance, when Ogunnaike was a freshman, not a lot of people had cellphones. Today, “they are Snapchatting and sending video messages back and forth,” he said. “In the old days, I would get up and visit my friends or block mates at their rooms, but today it is all about social media.”In 2006 Facebook, which was created at Harvard, was just beginning, Ogunnaike said, but today students are on the site all the time.“I don’t check my Facebook page and messages every day,” he said, “which means that I sometimes miss out on catching an impromptu game of soccer with friends.”Like other universities, Harvard is becoming more Internet-friendly, Ogunnaike said. Harvard students can do more administrative tasks online now, such as completing study cards and securing books and journals without ever having to step foot in Widener, he pointed out.Admitting to not being current on all the latest technological advances, Chomsky said that when he was at Harvard the Internet was Widener. “I had a desk in the stacks of Widener Library,” the 87-year-old Chomsky said. “Having a desk there was one of my favorite experiences at Harvard, because I was free to roam and explore all that information and knowledge that was all around me by just walking around and picking up a book here and a journal there. It was an amazing education that way.”Anthony Chiorazzi has an M.Phil. in social anthropology from Oxford University and a master’s of theological studies from Harvard Divinity School. He has researched and written about such diverse religious cultures as the Hare Krishnas, Zoroastrians, Shakers, and Old Order Amish.

Courtesy of the Harvard University Archives Dining in style Students dine at Dudley House in 1954. House rules called for jackets and ties as mandatory dining attire. “They used to joke that you can get into the House dining rooms without pants, but you had to have a jacket and tie,” remembers linguist and philosopher Noam Chomsky. Courtesy of the Harvard University Archivescenter_img Mourning one of our own Students and faculty join the public in an impromptu memorial for President Kennedy in Harvard Square. “People were walking around oddly. Their heads were bent, and they were hugging one another,” recalls Frinde Mahar, Radcliffe ’64. © 1964, Harvard Yearbook Publications, Inc. If you asked the religious scholar and former University of Bridgeport President Richard Rubenstein, Th.M. ’55, Ph.D. ’60, one of the things he remembered most about his years at Harvard, he would answer: “Elsie’s Sandwich Shop in the Square, of course.” Rubenstein said Elsie’s, which closed in 1995, made the best sandwiches in Cambridge. “The roast beef was rare, thin, and really piled on. The fact that I remember it after 60 years says something.”With Harvard’s 365th Commencement just past, alumni from the 1950s through the 2000s were in the mood to share their memories of their alma mater and how it has changed since their crimson days.A particular memory for Frinde Maher, Radcliffe ’64, is Nov. 22, 1963. From the fourth floor of Widener Library, Maher was looking down on Massachusetts Avenue, and noticed that “something was wrong” in Cambridge. “People were walking around oddly. Their heads were bent, and they were hugging one another. It was strange,” she said.When she finally left the library, she learned that President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated. “People at Harvard were glued to their TV sets the whole weekend.”More than 50 years later, Maher, 73, is looking down the same street, this time across from Widener while having lunch at a trendy restaurant.

Radcliffe and Harvard would not officially merge until 1977, and would still remain separate entities until 1999.

first_imgVijay Iyer was supposed to begin the year in concert with Geri Allen in San Francisco. But after the jazz pianist and composer died in June, at 60, Iyer was forced to consider a different kind of performance, a memorial celebration of her creative genius.“She gave me a sense of how I might find my own voice, of being an artist,” said Iyer, who will co-host a weekend tribute to Allen at Harvard. “The choices she made as an artist, composer, improviser were fresh and innovative. The details of her musical language were very important, and they weren’t like anyone else.”Some of the biggest names in jazz will convene for “Timeless Portraits and Dreams,” which is co-sponsored by the Jazz Research Initiative at the Hutchins Center and the Harvard University Committee on the Arts. Iyer, the Franklin D. and Florence Rosenblatt Professor of the Arts, will be joined over the weekend by faculty members Ingrid Monson, Esperanza Spalding, and Yosvany Terry, as well as Kris Davis, Craig Taborn, Jason Moran, Terri Lyne Carrington, Tia Fuller, Carmen Lundy, Oliver Lake, and Don Byron.“It’s not just that she was a great artist, she was a great researcher,” Iyer said. “She was organizing a lot of new initiatives in musicology. She was important to the field, to the arts and humanities, in a way that we can try to carry forward.”The slate for the festival is filled with music and conversation. Iyer will moderate a roundtable discussion with Davis, Moran, and Taborn on Friday, with a performance to follow in the evening. On Saturday, Monson will moderate panels on Allen as a scholar and on her place in musical history. Photographer Carrie Mae Weems will discuss her work with Allen in a conversation with Carrington and Spalding. Carrington has also included a concert featuring Spalding, Lundy, Lake, and others.Bassist and singer Spalding, who joined Harvard’s Music Department last year, played in the trio ACS with Allen and Carrington for seven years. Her deep musical connection with Allen was based on shared language, she said.“She occupies such a giant territory in my heart and a visceral relationship to the art form. I have a hard time reducing it down into sentences,” Spalding said.“Geri came off as very shy, but she wasn’t. She was just highly observant, and very focused. I had this quieting sense of reverence of her. I’d say something silly or quirky, and she was right there ready to play. In a way it was a reflection of her musical spirit, too — she came off as mysterious and quiet, but as soon as you started making sound, she was right there on the playground.”,“It’s not just that she was a great artist, she was a great researcher. She was organizing a lot of new initiatives in musicology. She was important to the field, to the arts and humanities, in a way that we can try to carry forward.” — Vijay Iyer Carrington, a Grammy-winning drummer, was 14 when she met Allen, and played with her in several groups across more than three decades. Theirs was a sisterly relationship that developed a musical sound merging traditional jazz with more experimental ways of playing, she said.“I was in awe of the music she made and her creative process. Her work ethic was amazing; she worked tirelessly. She recorded so many projects involving different themes. To me it never sounded like she just made a record. It all had meaning.“Whatever ideas we came up with, Geri was the person who wanted to take them a step further,” Carrington added. “She wasn’t satisfied until many ideas and possibilities had been fully explored.”Music will be the centerpiece of the festival, but stories about Allen’s generosity off-stage will also be part of the conversation. Iyer remembers her driving him home after gigs and giving him a drum kit that he still has.“She’s universally loved and adored,” he said. “Her music and spirit are cherished. Whether it’s fellow pianists or anyone who had the chance to study with her, there’s no end of good will for Geri.”last_img read more

first_imgAs Boston area children head back to school under very different circumstances, Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA) continues to deliver critical services this fall to thousands of youth in the Greater Boston Area. Taking the lessons they learned from running 11 virtual summer camps, PBHA staff and volunteers are working with public schools and after-school programs to provide academic and social emotional support services to local youth.PBHA has a long history of working with vulnerable populations, and have sustained the ongoing commitment from students, staff, and volunteers during the pandemic to support virtual learning.Staff members, student leaders, and PBHA alumni volunteers individually programmed iPads and Google Chromebooks for every camper.  They made home deliveries to campers along with wellness kits, and academic and art supplies.Led by 100 college student directors and senior counselors, and 70 local high school student junior counselors, campers ranging in ages from 5-19 learned in Zoom classrooms for five weeks of camp. Attendance for campers exceeded 90 percent  and more than 100 camper families were directly supported with food security needs.Campers and guardians shared that the new format particularly connected with students who struggled with distance learning in the late spring. With an intention of not being on Zoom all day, counselors led campers in time away from screens, encouraging them to create chalk drawings, build zoology habitats after learning about animals, and pursue themed art projects and return back to Zoom to present to their classmates and senior counselors. Campers participated in book clubs and special interest clubs and many camps started the day with guided yoga.A key part of PBHA’s youth programs involve guidance in social and emotional learning. Counselors shared how important the topic was this year and how they were able to present on mental health and emotions to campers. Fahedur Fahed ‘22, a director for the Cambridge Youth Enrichment Program said, “You can talk about your feelings at any age and be equipped with the tools to deal with whatever you may be going through. That was really special to see, having mental health at the forefront starting from a young age.”PBHA is reimagining fall programming by staying true to their mission of being present for the communities they serve. “Our goal and commitment to be there for our families remains the same,” PBHA President Meherina Khan ‘21 said. “In these times where so much is changing, I believe that opportunities for students to creatively meet critical needs and gaps in resources, promote social awareness, and advocate for structural change feels even more resonant.”There are dozens of opportunities for current students to serve with PBHA this fall in mentorship, adult services, advocacy, and after-school service areas as more than 40 programs are running with new remote service plans.
