Local NPD funding scheme aids launch of Xmas pud

first_imgHarrogate Cake Company has launched a new handmade Christmas pudding following help from deliciouslyorkshire.The cake company teamed up with deliciouslyorkshire – the Regional Food Group’s campaigning brand that champions the broad range of food and drink from the Yorkshire and Humber region – which offered technical advice, and worked with the firm to develop a recipe with improved shelf-life and taste qualities. Deb Neeson, technical manager at deliciouslyorkshire, and Heather Cawthorne, owner of Harrogate Cake Company, worked together to further develop Cawthorne’s original Christmas pudding recipe into one that would hopefully give it a head-start in the retail market.The project was funded by the Innovation Voucher scheme, which enabled Cawthorne to take advantage of one of deliciouslyorkshire’s many services and obtain the new product development expertise she required.“Developing a new product can prove to be a minefield for a small business. I was able to help Heather consider new, functional ingredients, create her legal labelling, upscale her recipe and make it a robust proposition for her customers,” explained Neeson.Although Innovation Vouchers are no longer available, deliciouslyorkshire has introduced a new pay-monthly option in order to make new product development services more affordable for SMEs.last_img read more

49ers mailbag: What does a good season look like now?

first_imgSANTA CLARA — A 1-3 start to the 49ers season? That’s not what you subscribed to read about here. So, as our weekly public service, it’s time for another 49ers mailbag to vent your frustrations:I see better tackling on a weekly basis at the high school level. Ultimately, who should or needs to be responsible for this trainwreck of defensive fundamentals?

Ferocity of Geological Change Stuns Scientists

first_imgA crack in Ethiopia 500 meters long took just days to form.  New Scientist reported about a team of scientists who used seismic sensors to reconstruct the event.  “They found that a 60-kilometre-long, 8-metre-wide dike of solidified magma formed in the rift, causing the crack, in a matter of days.”  They believe the crack will some day form a new ocean like the Red Sea.    The team was amazed by the rapid change.  “The ferocity of what we saw during this episode stunned everyone,” said a team member who came over to study the continental rift that began in 2005 as plates began to shift (12/09/2005).  “Similar dikes in Iceland are typically around 10 kilometres long and 1 metre wide and can take years to form,” the article said.  “The new study shows the formation of dikes can occur in larger segments – and over much shorter periods of time – than previously thought.”  They estimate it will take 4 million years for an ocean to form in the rift.    The report on PhysOrg called this a “magnetic deformation.”  The scientist interviewed was also interested in how quickly this occurred but said the ocean formation is “happening slowly, likely to take a few million years.”What’s ferocious is the hubris of scientists.  The speed of this episode amazed them.  They learned that big changes can occur faster than they thought.  Then they turned right around and announced confidently that we will have to wait 4 million years to go surfing.  Then spend millions and millions as recklessly as an identity thief with a stolen credit card.  Who is going to wait those millions of years to tell them if they were right or wrong?  It’s a built-in confidence scam.But scientists, who ought to know,Tell us that it must be so.Oh let us never, never doubtWhat nobody is sure about. – Hilaire Belloc.(Visited 20 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Twitter and Webshots Veterans Launch New E-Mail API

first_imgMessage Bus is a new company that will offer an API for sending e-mail. It sounds like SendGrid or Amazon SES (see our coverage of SES for more competitors in this area). According to the blog post announcing the project, the team is focusing on an agnostic messaging architecture, “at the plumbing level, Twitter’s road not taken.”Message Bus was founded by CTO Jeremy LaTrasse, former operations manager at Twitter and President Narendra Rocherolle and CEO Nick Wilder, both formerly of Webshots and 30Box.The company sees itself as part of a growing community of “infrastructure apps.”  The term infrastructure apps was coined by Gary Orenstein at GigaOM to refer to apps like Twilio (coverage), Loggly (coverage), SimpleGeo (coverage), New Relic (coverage), Urban Airship (coverage) and Dasient (coverage).From the announcement:There’s not much more information available on the service than that.Email is first. It is mission critical and yet suffers from a chronic opaqueness when it comes to data and analytics. We have crossed the threshold where maintaining and administering email systems for companies large and small no longer makes financial sense. Message Bus reduces messaging to a simple API call. That’s it. You hand us a message and we deliver it with real-time reporting. Think of us as your digital FedEx.It was incubated at The Start Project, and just completed a $3 million round of series A funding from True Ventures.Disclosure: SendGrid is a sponsor of ReadWriteWeb.Photo by Alex Perkins Tags:#cloud#saas Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… klint finleycenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more
