It reported only a modest impact on the level of service provided to its customers in the first four months of the year, as many of its staff are able to work from home.Of course, weaker stock markets across the world are likely to impact negatively on the company’s financial outlook. Investor sentiment may have improved in recent weeks, but demand for many of the funds operated by Standard Life Aberdeen may prove to be lower than over the last few years.Standard Life Aberdeen’s share price has fallen by around 30% since the start of the year. As a cyclical business, it could experience a high degree of volatility over the coming months. However, its stock price seems to offer a margin of safety. Meanwhile, its relatively strong balance sheet could mean it has recovery potential over the long run. As such, now could be an opportune moment to buy a slice of the FTSE 100 business.FTSE 100 telecoms company BTAnother FTSE 100 share that’s recorded a significant decline in its price since the start of 2020 is BT (LSE: BT.A). Its shares are down by 43% in 2020, which is around twice the decline of the index over the same time period.The company’s recent full-year results were in line with expectations. It was able to complete the first phase of its transformation programme. It will continue with its modernisation programme, and expects to achieve annualised gross benefits of £2bn by 2025.As part of this, it will rationalise many of its products and switch off many legacy services. This could help to create a simpler and more agile business that can compete more effectively with its peers.BT’s suspension of its dividend in the 2021 financial year is disappointing for income investors at a time when interest rates are at historic lows. But the decision provides additional capital that can strengthen the FTSE 100 company’s operations.This may lead to a stronger business that’s able to deliver an improving financial performance over the long run, as well as a recovering share price.

Demasiadas familias han vivido durante mucho tiempo continuamente preocupadas porque los padres son separados de los hijos, los asalariados y los cuidadores de los que dependen de ellos, e incapaces de participar plenamente en sus comunidades y en la economía de la nación. Una reforma permanente e integral de nuestro quebrado sistema de inmigración mediante la acción del Congreso es todavía una necesidad urgente, pero la acción del Presidente es un paso constructivo hacia un sistema que honra la dignidad y el valor intrínseco de cada ser humano. Fortalecerá inmediatamente a las comunidades de nuestra nación al permitir que las familias de inmigrantes participen mucho más plenamente en la vida cívica y económica de Estados Unidos.La Iglesia Episcopal trabajará con los líderes del Congreso y de la Casa Blanca para presionar en favor de la aplicación del plan del presidente lo más rápida, justa e inclusivamente que sea posible. El plan del Presidente no es perfecto. Algunas personas y familias que lo merecen son excluidas, lo que significa que queda trabajo adicional por delante. Todas las personas merecen por igual la capacidad de perseguir sus sueños y contribuir en sus comunidades y familias con libertad y dignidad. Rezo para que la decisión del Presidente conduzca a nuestra nación hacia un futuro en el que esas sagradas posibilidades están abiertas a todos.

A collaboration between St. Paul’s Chatham, Christ Church Short Hills, The Apostles’ House, Inc., and House of Prayer in Newark, the effort to share ministry began more than 18 months ago with the support of the Rt. Rev. Mark Beckwith, Bishop of Newark. The rectors and wardens of each of the three parishes, along with the Executive Director of The Apostles’ House, began to meet with diocesan staff on a monthly basis to explore collaborative possibilities, including shared preaching and mutual ministry.The Very Rev. Kurt H. Dunkle, Dean and President of General Seminary, was invited to participate in the monthly meetings, and it became clear that a Wisdom Year residency could be a natural fit. “Often seminaries talk about investment, as if it were a one-way street—you invest in us,” Dunkle reflects. “At General, however, in The Wisdom Year, investment is a two-way street. We are learning from Newark about this new way of doing ministry, and we expect that Tommie and Nancy will contribute to its flourishing.”The shared ministry environment is an ideal setting for Wisdom Year residents to learn, grow, and contribute. Watkins has a Ph.D. in Public Health from the University of Alabama, in addition to a master’s degree in Social Work, having spent more than a decade doing HIV prevention and counseling in Miami, Florida, and Birmingham, Alabama. His goal over the next year is to strengthen ties between the Rutgers University School of Medicine, House of Prayer, and the Apostles’ House. House of Prayer has a strong history of community health ministries, and the nearby Apostles’ House has an emergency family shelter and social services agency which was established by six Episcopal parishes—including Christ Church and House of Prayer—in the early 1980s.Hennessey comes to Newark Shared Ministries with a 12-year background in higher education administration, including seven years as the Director of the Career Center and Office of Service Learning at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland. She will focus on supporting the effort to establish a high-school equivalency program at House of Prayer, working with St. Paul’s parishioners to write grants, helping to establish program goals, and hiring a program manager.Watkins and Hennessey will alternate Sundays between Christ Church and House of Prayer, preaching once a month in each location and helping to expand and support ministries for children and youth in both parishes. The Rev. Dr. Timothy Mulder, Rector of Christ Church, will supervise the Wisdom Year residents, with assistance from a lay committee at House of Prayer and Newark’s diocesan staff. Each resident will work 20 hours per week, and will be paid $25,000 for the year. “To be compensated means that we are being valued, though we are also still learning,” reflected Watkins. “To be able to make mistakes with a mentor like Tim Mulder is compelling.”“Initially, I had no intention of doing something like this,” said Hennessey. “I came from a more affluent, suburban church background. But The Wisdom Year has really pushed me out of my comfort zone, to experience the full diversity of our church. This shared partnership is the new way of doing ministry.” Director of Music Morristown, NJ Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Featured Events Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Associate Rector Columbus, GA TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Belleville, ILlast_img read more

Rinchem Company Selects Omnitracs to Ensure Safety and Compliance

first_img DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Omnitracs, LLC, a leader in SaaS-based fleet management and data analytics solutions and a pioneer in transportation technology, announced that Rinchem Company, Inc., the largest network of chemical and gas distribution centers globally, has selected the Omnitracs One platform to support ELD compliance and driver workflow. When the transportation team at Carolina Tank Lines (CTL), a Rinchem Company, realized its ELD provider wasn’t providing the services needed to maintain safety and compliance, they knew it was time for a change. Reinforcing this decision was the exponential increase in company costs, along with the possibility of losing the company’s USDOT number and drivers’ CDLs when the ELD Mandate took effect. “We couldn’t continue to work with an unreliable product that put our drivers at risk and one that subjected us to unexpected costs,” commented Chris Wright, Senior VP of Operations at Rinchem. “It was imperative that we switch providers to save our drivers’ licenses, our business’ reputation, and our company’s bottom line.” Rinchem Company, Inc., is a chemical management solutions provider with proven expertise in creating and managing safe and efficient supply chains for high purity, pre-packaged chemicals and gases. As such, it was imperative Rinchem had a solution that enabled the safe movement of dangerous materials in a timely and efficient manner. After testing multiple solutions and results within CTL, Rinchem selected the Omnitracs One platform because it provided the ELD compliance solution CTL required, as well as benefits that extended to driver workflow, dispatch and routing, and asset tracking with:Automated document handling, resulting in a more streamlined process for billing and payroll time schedulingTimely notifications of delivery discrepancies, claims and damages, providing immediate communication with all parties involved at the time and place they occurIntegrated routing, weather and traffic – creating more efficient route planning for both the driver and operations, eliminating opportunities for service failures changes “As soon as we met with Omnitracs and learned about Omnitracs One, we knew it would be the right solution for us,” said Wright of Rinchem. “As we began working with the company, our decision was reinforced with the service, support, and technology we received from the Omnitracs team. It’s amazing how everything we need is in one solution, and it integrates into our McLeod TMS – providing better accuracy and information so we can make better business decisions.” “Companies like Rinchem are continually looking to ensure regulatory compliance while improving fleet operations and driver workflow,” commented Owen Smith, VP of New Business at Omnitracs. “Omnitracs is committed to building professional tools for professional fleets, and the Omnitracs One platform does just that by providing one source for all applications, including driver workflow, dispatch and routing, asset tracking, ELD compliance, and more. We’re proud to partner with Rinchem and look forward to continuing to provide best-in-class service and support.” With Omnitracs One, Wright knows he is not only getting accurate data, but his drivers are also compliant with all rules and regulations. “CTL rests easy knowing that it’s in complete compliance and can keep its drivers on the road,” said Wright. “By keeping drivers driving, CTL is able to meet its customers’ delivery schedules, which adds to the company’s profitability. It’s a win-win-win for our drivers, our customers, and our company.” About Rinchem Company, Inc. Rinchem provides a wide range of logistics services to support the semiconductor, chemical, gas, life sciences, and paint and coatings industries, including dedicated and multi-client warehousing, on-site services, over-the-road and local transportation, freight forwarding, empty container return management, and supply chain consulting.

The plea has been moved under Section 14 of the said Act against the order dated 29/02/20, passed by the Additional Sessions Judge, wherein the state was directed to register an FIR against the Appellant under Section 4 of the SC and ST (POA) Act. Senior Advocate Vikas Pahwa, who appeared for the Appellant, argued that the Appellant was the investigating officer in case FIR No. 261/2019 for offences under Section 3 of the SC & ST (POA) Act registered on the complaint of the Respondent No. 2 and that he in discharge of his official duty has conducted fair, impartial and bonafide detailed investigation and filed the charge sheet on 16.08.2019. Mr Pahwa further submitted that on bare reading of Section 4 of the Act it shows that no order directing the registration of FIR against the investigating officer for wilfully neglecting the duties can be passed without any administrative inquiry having been conducted which could prove that the appellant wilfully neglected his duties. Mr Pahwa also informed the court that till date no FIR has been registered against the Appellant. Meanwhile, the counsel appearing for the state submitted that she needs time to file the status report and she is not aware as to whether FIR till date has been registered or not. In light of these developments, the Single Bench of Justice Rajnish Bhatnagar issued notice to the state and asked it to file a status report under the signatures of Joint Commissioner of Police. Moreover, the court directed, that if FIR has not been registered against the Appellant till date, the said registration is stayed till the further orders of the court.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

Meeksville: a place for new beginnings

first_img By Blood Sugar Blaster Published 11:00 pm Friday, July 6, 2012 China Grove’s loss was Meeksville’s gain.The Meeksville Volunteer Fire Department has been a strong supporter of the China Grove parade. Each year, the volunteer fire fighters sold chicken and rib plates as the department’s biggest fund-raiser.“We didn’t want to see the parade go and we needed the money that we raised,” said Alfred Alloway, Meeksville fire chief. “We talked about it and decided that we could have the parade here at Meeksville. It’s right town the road from China Grove and we’ve got a real nice park. We were excited to bring the parade to Meeksville and Diane agreed to be the chairman. We all worked hard getting ready and getting the word out. We just hoped that people would come.”As people happily and eagerly lined up for the Meeksville parade Wednesday, few knew that, over in China Grove, an “unofficial” Fourth of July parade was underway.“The China Grove parade started as a neighborhood parade and on Wednesday it was just that again,” LaFountaine said. “It was a small patriotic parade that ran right through the heart of ‘town.’ We made the turn in the road and continued on to participate in the Meeksville Fourth of July Parade.”As chair of that parade, LaFountain said neither she nor any of those who worked so hard to make the parade a success knew how things would turn out.But not a one of them was disappointed.Alloway said he was excited to see so many people out and enjoying themselves.“I think that was one of the biggest crowds that we’ve had at the Fourth of July parades,” he said. “People just seem to want to be a part of a community parade. I was excited about the turnout. Really, we were all overwhelmed.”And, a bit surprised.“And, what a wonderful surprise,” LaFountaine said. “The Meeksville Fourth of July Parade was a tremendous success. It could not have been better. People came just like they had come to China Grove. Everyone had a great time. I was overjoyed.”LaFountaine said that, as she looked at the crowds that gathered all along the one mile-plus parade route, she saw America at its best.“The parade was a slice of Americana,” she said. “It was all about being true to what we believe in. It was about being neighborly. It was about loving your country and your community and being proud and honored to be a part of celebrating all that America stands for. That’s what the China Grove Fourth of July Parade was about for 12 years and that’s what the Meeksville Fourth of July Parade is and will be for years to come.”LaFountain said her sadness turned to gladness with the realization that with every ending comes a new beginning.“Oh, we’ll continue to have our neighborhood Fourth of July parade at China Grove,” she said. “Then we’ll go on up the road to Meeksville where there’s a better plan and a better place to celebrate our nation’s independence on the Fourth of July. This year was a wonderful, new beginning.” Book Nook to reopen “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.”Psalm 30:5 Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Latest Stories By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Skip Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration LaFountain was one of the participants in the Fourth of July parade at China Grove 13 years ago. The residents of the small, sleepy community in the far northern reaches of Pike County had decided to celebrate the country’s independence with a neighborhood parade. Kids rode their bicycles decorated with crepe paper streamers and moms and dads carried small American flags and walked along. Maybe 30 people were there, in all.Folks heard about the parade and wanted to be a part of it. And, in three short years, the China Grove Fourth of July Parade had become a Pike County tradition. More folks came than you could shake a stick at.But after last year’s parade, some China Grove residents decided that the parade had gotten too big and the liability was too great. An end was called to the small town- America patriotic parade.“Not everyone in China Grove wanted to end the parade but we had to have the support of the entire community if it was going to go on,” LaFountain said. “It was with heavy hearts that we had to accept that the China Grove Fourth of July Parade would be no more.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson You Might Like ‘Without her I’d be zero’ For Dr. Johnny Long and his wife, Mary Lynn, June 25, 2012 was “A Star Spangled Night.” Although they were… read more Sponsored Content Meeksville: a place for new beginnings Md: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch) For Diane LaFountain, that scripture took on special meaning on the hot, sultry Fourth of July morning.

Two vehicles hit protesters in LA as Breonna Taylor protests continue throughout US

first_imgFREDERIC J. BROWN/AFP via Getty ImagesBy WILLIAM MANSELL, ABC News(LOS ANGELES) — A pickup truck hit a protester Thursday night in Hollywood, California, and moments later a second vehicle hit a car participating in the same protest as it tried to leave the area, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.The “largely peaceful” group of protesters began marching around 7 p.m. local time with only isolated reports of vandalism, but shortly after 9 p.m., things turned violent when a blue pickup truck traveling on Sunset Boulevard maneuvered through the crowd and became involved in an altercation, according to authorities. The driver of the truck attempted to get away from the situation, but police said he struck a protester standing in the street.The protester hit by the truck was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.A short time later, a white Prius attempted to drive around the same protest, but a truck involved in the protests pinned the Prius in, forcing it to stop. Police said the driver of the Prius put the car in reverse to leave the area but then hit a green Mustang that was also participating in the protest.Protesters tried to remove the driver of the Prius from his vehicle, but the LAPD said he was able to get away from the scene. There were no injuries reported in the second incident. Police said they have detained the driver.All drivers and victims in both altercations have been identified and police said the investigation is ongoing.Protesters in L.A. and other cities across the United States have been demonstrating following a Kentucky grand jury decision to not charge three police officers in the death of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor.Taylor was shot dead by police while in her Louisville home on March 13. Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were asleep when three Louisville Metro Police Department officers, including Brett Hankison, tried to execute a “no-knock” search warrant. The officers were investigating a suspected drug operation linked to Taylor’s ex-boyfriend. No drugs were found in the apartment.Former Louisville police officer Hankison was indicted on three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment on Wednesday for allegedly endangering Taylor’s neighbors when he fired into the apartment complex. No officers were directly charged in connection with her death.Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Hankison fired no shots that struck Taylor. He said Detective Myles Cosgrove and Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly were “justified” when they opened fire 22 times during the incident since they were returning fire.In Louisville, where Taylor was killed, at least 24 people were arrested during demonstrations Thursday. Among those was Louisville State Rep. Attica Scott. She was charged, according to the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department, with riot in the 1st degree, failure to disperse and unlawful assembly.Prior to curfew, Louisville police said protesters caused damage along their route at various locations, including tossing a flare into the Main Library. As curfew neared, protesters made their way to the First Unitarian Church, which let people gathered at the property to stay after curfew, officials said in a statement early Friday morning.No arrests were made at the church and no National Guard members were deployed there, police said.Vehicles hitting protesters have become a familiar scene during the protests following Taylor’s death. Two protesters were injured in hit-and-run incidents in Colorado and upstate New York on Wednesday night during demonstrations across the U.S.In Buffalo, New York, video showed a pickup truck drive directly into a group of demonstrators who pounded on the side of the truck and yelled for the driver to stop just before a protester on a bicycle was hit. The footage shows the truck speeding away as protesters on foot chased after it.A silver Volvo outside the Capitol Building in Denver was surrounded by protesters who told the driver to turn around on Wednesday night, but then the car accelerates and knocked one protester to the ground.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Monarch Affiliate Gets Big Win In Effort To Sell Liquor

first_imgMonarch Affiliate Gets Big Win In Effort To Sell LiquorKayleigh Colombo for www.theindianlawyer.comA Marion County Superior Court judge has ruled in favor of a Monarch Beverage Co. affiliate called Spirited Sales LLC in its quest to gain a permit to wholesale liquor, a win in Monarch’s years-long effort to enter the spirits business.Marion County Special Judge Heather Welch found the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission was “arbitrary and capricious” in its decision to deny the company’s wholesale liquor permit application in 2014.It is unclear whether the state plans to appeal the ruling or request a stay.The 52-page decision, issued Wednesday, criticized a “disturbing and inappropriate” relationship between the ATC, the Indiana Governor’s Office and Monarch’s rivals in the liquor wholesaling industry, all of which appeared to lobby the commission behind the scenes for the denial of the permit and other requests from Monarch dating back to at least 2009.The decision details situations in which staffers working for then-Gov. Mitch Daniels intervened or tried to intervene at the ATC in opposition to a proposal by a liquor wholesaler that had hoped to transfer its permit to Monarch’s Pendleton Pike warehouse and use its transportation services. And the ruling discussed ex parte conversations—meaning talks that involved only one side of the argument with other side absent—that took place between the ATC, Gov. Mike Pence’s administration and competitors regarding the Spirited Sales application.Phil Terry, CEO of both Monarch Beverage and Spirited Sales, told IBJ that the companies are “pleased with the decision and think it’s correct.”“We think this will allow Spirited Sales and Monarch to provide some local competition inside the liquor wholesale tier. It will increase competition and provide good value to retailers and ultimately consumers. This is a pro-business, pro-Indiana decision.”But Terry called the process Monarch and Spirited Sales went through to try to get approved by the ATC “long and frustrating.” He also accused the Daniels administration and the agency of a lack of transparency and consistency.The company applied to the ATC for the permit in September 2013. After six months without an investigation into the application, the ATC “expressed its intent” to deny Spirited’s application.At a hearing about the denial requested by Spirited Sales, none of the commission members who voted on the application attended. And groups that represent Monarch’s competitors—Wine & Spirits Distributors of Indiana and Indiana Beverage Alliance—remonstrated against the application. They were allowed to act “as if they were parties to the proceeding,” including being allowed to make objections during testimony, cross-examining witnesses and delivering closing arguments, the ruling said.The hearing judge—ATC Executive Secretary David Rothenburg—recommended denial of the application in December 2014, five months after the hearing. The commission voted to deny the application in January 2015.Monarch, Indiana’s largest beer and wine distributor, has for years attempted to sell liquor in Indiana, but it has been shot down by the Legislature and in two previous lawsuits in which it tried to argue the state’s regulatory rules were unconstitutional.The state has a three-tier alcohol-regulatory system that requires manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers to be separate entities. Indiana is the only state in the country that restricts beer wholesalers from holding a liquor wholesale permit.Monarch’s competitors have argued that changing the system would unfairly give the firm a competitive edge in the market.State law also prevents Indiana alcohol wholesalers “from directly or indirectly having an interest in both a beer wholesaler’s permit and a liquor wholesaler’s permit.”Monarch and Spirited Sales are separate companies with separate ownership structures. But they do have a lot in common.Spirited is wholly owned by EF Transit Inc., which provides transportation services to Monarch and other companies. The same shareholders that own Monarch also own EFT.EFT and Monarch also share the same CEO and board of directors, but their day-to-day operations are separate. They have distinct alcoholic beverage permits, maintain separate insurance, keep separate financial books, and have separate bank accounts, tax returns and payrolls.The commission argued that giving Spirited a liquor license when its owner is a closely held organization owned by the shareholders of Monarch would violate state law and present a threat to Indiana’s three-tier system.But the court found that “Monarch shareholders’ interests in the parent company do not create an indirect interest in the property of its subsidiary.”The judge also said she was not persuaded by the Indiana ATC’s argument because it had a long history of granting permits to companies in similar situations. The court pointed out several examples.For instance, while Spirited’s application was pending with the ATC, the commission granted a three-way retailer permit to Repeal 1205, which is owned by William and Theresa Webster. William is also an owner of Fountain Square Brewery LLC, which has a retail permit, and Theresa is an owner of 15-05 Distillery LLC, which has a distiller permit.“”It is clear from prior decisions that the commission has … elected to find that corporate separateness is a suitable safe harbor from an owner violating the Prohibited Interest Provisions,” the ruling stated. “To now argue otherwise seems disingenuous given the commission’s previous rulings and statements.”Kara Brooks, a spokeswoman for Gov. Mike Pence, said the governor’s office had no comment on the ruling.Tina Noel, a spokeswoman for the Wine & Spirits Distributors of Indiana, said in a statement: “We believe this decision is legally incorrect and has the potential to do great harm. It ignores numerous prohibitions in the Indiana Alcoholic Beverage Code on monopolization of alcohol wholesaling, and is contrary to legal precedent throughout the country. This decision will result in Monarch having a unique advantage over every other alcohol wholesaler in the state of Indiana.”The Indiana Attorney General’s Office, which is the state government agency lawyer, said that it “will review the court’s ruling with our client ATC and will decide on next legal steps, if any, by the appropriate court deadlines.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Polish influences

first_imgPolish company T&W Bakeries makes a range of Baltona breads in dark, garlic, caraway and poppy variants. It also makes sunflower and plum breads, as well as 100% rye breads and Polish sweets and rolls. All its breads are made with sourdough.Baltona White BreadIngredients for 100 loaves (weights are approximate)Wheat flour 38.3kgSourdough 29.0kgWater 20.0LRye flour 9.0kgWhite salt 1.0kgYeast 1.0kgMethod:The sourdough is manufactured in tanks, operated by a computer, which looks after the proper temperature and conditions during the entire mixing process. The ready starter is weighed then poured into the mixing bowl, where it is combined with all the other waiting ingredients, including: wheat flour, water, rye flour, salt and yeast. The mixing time is approximately 20 minutes.1. The dough is transferred to a divider then a rounder. The shaped pieces of the dough end up in plastic baking baskets and are moved to a proving room for approximately 50 minutes.2. In the proving room, the pieces of dough are leavened into proper loaf sizes under optimal conditions of 40ºC and the appropriate humidity.3. They are transported to the ovens and are baked in a temperature of 215ºC for approximately 45 minutes.4. After cooling, slicing and packing, the final product is ready for sale.—-=== About sourdough ===Sourdough has a long history in northern Europe. In this part of the world, there is an abundance of rye, which grows better in colder climates. Rye flour does not contain enough gluten for baker’s yeast to be effective, but the use of sourdough lowers the pH level of the dough, causing the starch to partially gelatinise. This enables it to retain the gas bubbles produced by the Lactobacilli.Sourdough is a symbiotic culture of Lactobacilli and yeasts used to leaven bread. It gives the bread a very distinctive taste, due mainly to the lactic acid produced by the Lactobacilli bacteria.When the sourdough is prepared, a mixture of Lactobacilli and yeast cultures is used in a ratio of approximately 100:1. Water and rye flour are added to the mixture to feed the micro-organisms and to help the sourdough to propagate.This culture is stable, due to its ability to prevent colonisation by other yeasts and bacteria as a result of its acidity and other anti-bacterial agents. It is these properties, too, that act as a natural preservative, enabling these bread varieties to be more resistant to spoilage.How to make sourdoughThere are many methods for making a sourdough starter. In general, a ’mother’ dough is made by mixing equal parts flour and water and allowing it to ferment at room temperature over time. As you use it for baking, you should always hold back around one-fifth of the mixture and top it up with fresh flour and water. Sourdoughs respond better to regular ’feeding’.For more tips on making sourdough go to [http://www.bakeryinfo.co.uk] and click on ’recipes’ and then ’bread’ links.last_img read more
