University Trials Free Cycle Service

first_imgStaff at Oxford University will soon be able to use a free ‘pick up and pedal’ cycling scheme, inspired by those set up in London and several European cities.The pilot will see cycle stations set up in Headington and the city centre, and is aimed at reducing congestion and carbon emissions.Only a limited number of bicycles will be available at first, but if successful the service may be rolled out to include students and eventually the whole city.The scheme uses technological advances to avoid previous problems such as theft.  Users are required to register their debit card details as a security precaution. Ed Wigzell, Sustainable Travel Officer for the University, said: “Advances in technology have enabled more recent schemes, such as those in Paris, London, Lyon and Brussels to be very successful. The University is very excited to be involved in introducing a similar scheme in Oxford.”It is thought that the national company OYbike will provide the bicycles and a system that uses text messages for hiring and returning. The scheme starts this winter. read more

first_imgHealthy food ranges have helped Marks & Spencer gain a 0.8% increase in group sales in its fourth quarter 2011/12.As announced this morning (17 April), the business has seen a 3.1% boost in UK food sales, with like-for-like food sales up 1% for the 13 weeks to 31 March 2012. Total UK sales rose by 1.2%, despite its like-for-like sales dropping by 0.7%.Marc Bolland, chief executive for Marks & Spencer Group, said: “Marks & Spencer continued to make progress in a challenging market. Group sales grew by 0.8%, and UK sales grew by 1.2%. Our food business has again performed well, especially healthy food.“In food, we performed well in a very competitive market and against tough comparatives. We continued our focus on innovation, launching c.500 new products in the quarter. Our promotions provided our customers with great value solutions for special times of the year, such as Valentine’s Day Dine In, which was our record one to date. We held the highest share of the market for healthy eating through the quarter, with our Simply Fuller Longer range as the market leader.”General merchandise saw a decline in both total sales (-1.2%) and like-for-like (-2.8%), in addition to international sales falling 2%. Direct sales have grown considerably in Q4 with a 22.8% increase.Bolland added: “We have continued to manage costs tightly, and are confident of delivering full-year profits in line with expectations. While the short-term trading outlook continues to be challenging, we are focused on investing in line with our plan and are making strong progress against our goal of becoming an international, multi-channel retailer.”Marks & Spencer reported that its UK pilot stores on the high street have performed well, with plans to roll the concept out through the remainder of its estate by mid-2013. It plans to do so for £100m less than its previous guidance of £600m, with no reduction in scope.The group will announce its full-year results, for the 52 weeks ending 31 March 2012, on 22 May .last_img read more

Aqueous’ Mike Gantzer To Revive DOOKIE Green Day Tribute With Ryan Stasik And Kris Myers For UM Afterparty

first_imgBack in 2017, Aqueous guitarist Mike Gantzer teamed up with Umphrey’s Mcgee bassist Ryan Stasik and drummer Kris Myers to give fans at Brooklyn Comes Alive a nostalgic punk-rock experience with a Green Day-themed tribute set.The three jam-based musicians will look to revive their pop-punk supergroup in Albany, New York next month, as they announced on Tuesday afternoon that their tribute supergroup, DOOKIE, will perform music from the infamous 1994 Green Day studio album by the same name at an afterparty following Umphrey’s performance at The Palace Theatre on February 1st.The afterparty will take place at the Pearl St. Pub, located just a few blocks away from The Palace Theatre. The performance will take place at 11:30 p.m., although fans should expect for the tribute show to start closer to midnight depending on how long it takes for fans to empty out of the Umphrey’s concert earlier that evening. The announcement also stated that they plan on jamming out to some rock songs outside of the Green Day songbook, so fans should be ready for anything when the three musicians take the stage for the late-night party set.Umphrey’s will be joined in support by Robert Walter’s 20th Congress at The Palace that evening, so there’s also the possibility that a member or two from that band could also find their way over to the Pearl St. Pub as well.Fans can check out the video below to revisit DOOKIE’s cover of “When I Come Around” during their 2017 Brooklyn Comes Alive performance.DOOKIE – “When I Come Around” (Green Day cover) – Brooklyn Comes Alive 2017[Video: Live For Live Music]The announcement on Tuesday afternoon came just afters after Aqueous revealed they would be teaming up with power funk band Turkuaz for a run of four shows across the northeast scheduled in early April. The band also announced just last week that their first-ever all-improv performance will take place during a show at Anthology in Rochester, New York on March 15th as part of their upcoming winter tour.last_img read more

Dollar In High Demand

first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window) MGN Stock Image.WASHGINTON – The United States Dollar is getting stronger.The dollar’s value around the world has surged, up 7-percent since hitting it’s lowest point of the year so far on March 9. That means it is viewed as the world’s safest and most stable currency.However, strong demand from other countries has created a liquidity crunch, or in other words, a dollar shortage.The federal reserve in turn is rolling out new loans with a growing number of central banks. Starting Monday, the reserve will let those loans, known as ‘dollar swaps’ take place with key central banks on a daily basis, not the usual weekly basis, until the end of April.last_img read more

Green Race 2011 Recap

first_imgGreen Race winner Isaac Levinson drops in. Photo: Ashley Woodring Phew, another one under the belt.Green Race 2011 did not disappoint.  150 start times and 1000+ spectators meant that someone was flying off of Gorilla every single minute for two and a half hours!  The crowds were roaring, and all of the heavy hitters were out swinging with blistering fast times.Isaac Levinson, a 2012 Olympic hopeful, put together an incredible run, and walked away with his first title, while Adriene Levknecht fought her way to her 4th consecutive women’s title, finishing 10th overall and hurting a lot of the guys’ feelings! See the full results here.Check out this awesome video montage of the race by Pilot Collective Media:Aside from the top tier of competitors, there were also over 30 first-time racers.  These people form a critical part of the DNA that makes up the Green Race.  The pre-race motivational speech by Jason Hale was another great one.  Looking around the circle of paddlers standing proudly with their boats, I could see the adrenaline seeping out of everyone’s pores, but none moreso than the first timers.  While the top guys get to walk straight to the river, warm up and race immediately, these Green Race virgins stew in their own thoughts for another two hours before getting their shot at the class V course.Louis Geltman from Hood River OR, and Severin Haberling from Switzerland were two dark horses who upset quite a few locals!  Louis finished joint 5th in a tie with Pat Keller, and Severin came in a very respectable 8th place.  You know that with that good of a first year result, these guys will certainly be back, and will pose threats to the title in years to come.Another topic of discussion after the 2011 Green Race was the unprecedented amount of carnage that occurred.  While it is an inherently unpredictable medium, and the best paddlers do have bad lines on occasion, there were some paddlers racing who shouldn’t have.  It was scary to watch, and begs the question… should there be qualifying for the Green Race?  I don’t know what the answer is, but I don’t want to see anyone get hurt out there as a result of pride or peer pressure.Here is another video by Pilot Collective of the Green Race crashes:In spite of the bad lines (and I certainly added a few to the mix), the event ended safely for all, and everyone celebrated around the campfire and dancefloor at Wilderness Cove Campground.For additional Green Race coverage, check out the BRO Isaac Levinson interview, my Green Race article, and Shane Benedict’s comprehensive coverage.Time to start training for 2012!last_img read more

Canadian CUs make case to counter ‘Warren Buffett Effect’

first_imgSmaller Canadian credit unions pay up to a 20% higher effective tax rate than the nation’s “Big Six” banks as a result of a combination of outdated regulations and recent policy decisions, concludes a new analysis from the Canadian Credit Union Association.CCUA’s VP/Government Relations Michael Hatch compares the tax policy and procedural issues that tip the scales in the favor of big banks to Warren Buffett’s observation that he pays a lower tax rate than his secretary.“Bigger institutions have the resources to invest into figuring out how to lower their taxes,” Hatch says. “And the elimination of the federal tax deduction several years ago resulted in a higher tax burden for credit unions, which means less money left over at the end of the day to invest in the business and return to members. Ultimately, it compromises their sustainability and ability to compete with the large banks.”The “Credit Union Tax Policy Modernization” report offers four recommendations to close the “tax gap” as federal finance officials work to finalize a proposed budget due out in the next few weeks: continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
