Cooking Camp Introduces New Teen Iron Chef Series

first_imgPersonal Living Cooking Camp Introduces New Teen Iron Chef Series From STAFF REPORTS Published on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 | 1:27 pm EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS In recent years, it has been exceedingly difficult for parents to get their children engaged in activities that pry them away from their computer screens, Ipads and video games. Programs such as Summer Art Academy’s Cooking Camp allow children and teenagers to gain new life skills while thoroughly enjoying the process in a tasty week of Cooking this summer.The Cooking Camp is a program that resonates with many kids as it creates a very hands-on learning environment that will prove beneficial to them in future years. Experienced chefs work with students by teaching classic French culinary techniques and allowing them to create their own cuisine inspired by various parts of the globe. In addition, students learn about nutritional values, kitchen safety and sanitation.New for teenagers this year, Allen is bringing forth new “Iron Chef” style sessions to add a little spice to the Camp’s classes as an exciting challenge for students. Similar to the Food Network’s show, students will be provided mandatory ingredients that they will have to use to create a dish. Chefs will help walk the students through the process while still allowing the student to take charge in exploring their creative possibilities.The chefs that conduct the classes are Le Cordon Bleu trained and teach students ages seven to 17 with new themes each week such as The 50’s Diner, Cartoon Cookery and Chocolate Extravaganza. One instructor is available for every five students with each class going no larger than 26 students. The smaller class size allow each student to receive assistance when needed and ensure a safe environment. Students are given original recipes for each class and can bring their dishes home to show off their work to the family. Students can even recreate their favorite dishes at home as all the recipes are posted online at the beginning of every week for the kids to begin their own Culinary School style notebook.The Cooking Camp was first established in 2005, as a pilot program by Executive Chef Chris Allen, but it took off due to rave feedback from both parents and students alike. “Often there are children that have food dislikes and have strong emotions towards a specific food. Tomatoes for example, it’s amazing to see their eyes open in surprise because they can’t believe it’s so good, and knowing they actually created something delicious that they like with tomatoes, it makes it so much better,” said Allen.Allen was a full-time faculty member at the Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena and has had years of success as a chef from owning his own catering company, working as a personal chef and being a special demonstration Chef for the Friends of Robinson’s Garden.Parents notice substantial changes in their child after each lesson as their food palate is broadened and express a newly acquired passion for cooking. It is the Cooking Camp’s ability to enrich children’s lives that led to its selection as the 2012 Best of Pasadena Award in the Culinary Schools category by the Pasadena Awards Program.The summer program gives kids and young teenagers the chance to be around those their age while learning to cook with finesse well beyond their years. Many students eagerly await the summer to return to the camp once again in hopes to create something that both looks and tastes amazing. It is experiences such as those provided at Cooking Camp that stay with a child throughout their lifetime.Cooking Camp is located in Woodland Hills, La Cañada and North Hollywood. Classes are available for morning classes, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and afternoon classes from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. beginning June 17 to August 9.For more information, visit or call (866) 507-COOK.

“Our Humble Kanji Is Being Charged At Rs.1300” Kerala High Court Warns Private Hospitals Against Charging Exorbitant Rates On COVID Treatment

first_imgNews Updates”Our Humble Kanji Is Being Charged At Rs.1300″ Kerala High Court Warns Private Hospitals Against Charging Exorbitant Rates On COVID Treatment Lydia Suzanne Thomas10 May 2021 4:58 AMShare This – xGiving strong warning to hospitals for overcharging on Covid-treatment rates, the Kerala High Court on Monday cautioned hospitals to abide by the rates notified by the government in its Order published today.The Division Bench of Justices Devan Ramachandran and Dr Kauser Edappagath orally cautioned hospitals to charge rates as notified by the State Government today. The Court cited an instance of a hospital in the Ernakulam district which was found to have levied high rates for its Covid treatment, as per the report of the District Medical Officer submitted in Court today.”We are not taking the name of the hospital…”, the Court said. On this theme, the Court said, “we have a list of hospitals that have indulged in profiteering” and emphasised that it would monitor compliance with the Government Order.All private hospitals in the State of Kerala, with respect to the 50% beds reserved for Covid patients would be bound to offer treatment to such patients strictly as per rates stipulated in the Government Order, the Bench urged in its judgment.The Court took note of the new order enforcing provisions of the Kerala Clinical Establishments Act, 2018 and its Rules, and pointed out that Section 39 and Rule 19 required hospitals to publish the rates of COVID treatment.The conjoined effect of the statute and rules would require hospitals to publish the rates being charged, the Court notes in its judgment. Accordingly, the Court has required private hospitals to publish their price lists. Prices of drugs and other excluded rates would have to be charged in consonance with the Maximum Retail Price or price under the Drugs Control and Essential Commodities Act.”Any violation will visit them with penal consequences”, it was impressed in the judgment.While the Court was on the subject of exorbitant rates, the Court cited an instance where rice gruel or kanji was charged at Rs 1300. “Our humble kanji is being charged Rs 1300″, Justice Ramachandran exclaimed, clarifying that the rate was an extreme, isolated case.”If Kanji is charged Rs 1300, we may find it difficult to swallow”, Justice Ramachandran remarked.”Kanji is the new caviar,” an Advocate quipped.”Maybe we’ll soon have to keep it under wraps and hide it away, like gold”, Justice Ramachandran joked in Malayalam.In its judgment, the Court urges the State Government to set in place its grievance redressal mechanism, with authorities to monitor complaints of overcharging at Private Hopspitals at the district and State level forthwith.Additionally, after Advocate Ajay M for the Kerala Medical Services Corporation informed the Court that many private hospitals had already appointed Incident Commanders in compliance with the Disaster Management Act, the Court directed that Incident Commanders monitor rates being charged at the hospital level. The Court enjoined incident commanders to inspect purchase bills and other receipts received by patients.The Court exhorted private hospitals to be partners in the fight against Covid and implement the government’s order in letter and spirit.High Court’s concern about economically-challenged patients who did not fall within categories whose expenses were footed by the GovernmentIn this respect, the Court took note of the Government Order wherein the rates of treatment for patients under the Karunya Scheme (KASP) and government-sponsored patients was footed by the government in private hospitals.”What happens to a BPL patient, patient not under KASP?”, the Court asked.After deliberations with the Counsel, the Court proposed that a patient or his by-stander could ask the private hospital to connect with the District Programme Management and Support Unit (DPSMU) and seek that they be covered post facto under the KASP or be treated as government-sponsored patients, if they met eligibility criteria.If they were prevented from moving through the private hospital for any reason, they could approach the DPMSU, the Court stated, noting that this system could remain in place till the matter was taken up next for compliance.First Line Treatment CentersTaking note of the fact that First Line Treatment Centers were not mentioned in the Government Order, the Court observed that the rates prescribed for General Wards could apply to FLTCs as well, even those maintained by private medical centers. Violations would not be permitted, the Court emphasized.When the State Attorney pointed out that there were no FLTCs maintained by private hospitals, the Court said that it knew of one being operated by a hospital.Other directions to private hospitalsAll hospitals who were admitting patients after the publication of the Government Order would be bound by the Government Order, the Court underscored.All private hospitals in the State of Kerala, with respect to the 50% beds reserved for Covid patients would be bound to offer treatment to such patients strictly as per rates stipulated in the Government Order, it was again stated.It was made clear that no private hospital shall be entitled to charge for drugs/PPE kits/essentials/oximeters etc. more than cost price. Actual rates on PPE kits etc. could be charged on a pro rata sharing basis by all patients in ward depending on actual use, the Court said.When counsel for an association of private hospitals Advocate K Anand raised a concern about the need for subsidizing electricity/water rates, the Court directed him to approach the concerned authority under the government.Click here to download the Government OrderClick here to download the judgmentTagsCovid Treatment And Tests Covid Treatment Kerala High Court Justice Devan Ramachandran Justice Kauser Edappagath Private Hospitals Next Storylast_img read more

I want to give back to Brundidge, to my hometown and the kids here.” For some, “giving back” is a cliché but, for Nickson, it expresses the deep desire he has to do something meaningful for the kids in his hometown.Nickson came home to Brundidge to conduct a camp for kids during Spring Break, March 12-16.

Those are goals attainable by a seven-year-old as readily as someone 16 or 17 years of age.“We want the kids to learn about respect — about respect for themselves and for others,” Nickson said. “That’s the place to start. A lot of kids don’t have support systems and they have to deal with their individual struggles and, to do that, they have to be respectful of themselves and others.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Email the author SPRING SUMMIT: PCHS alum teaches life skills to Brundidge kids Messenger photo/Jaine treadwellPike County High School gridiron star and Alabama’s Mr. Football 2003, Chris Nickson and the LSSA team conducted a weeklong kids’ camp during Spring Break that focused on life skills and the responsibilities of that come with being good citizens.

Pay board is elected to revisit London weighting

first_imgPay board is elected to revisit London weightingOn 23 Oct 2001 in Personnel Today For the first time in 30 years an independent panel has been appointed tolook at whether London weighting needs to be changed to keep pace with theincreasing cost of living and working in the capital. The Greater London Authority’s assembly has commissioned the panel tore-examine how much more London employers should pay their staff than workerselsewhere in the country. The pay board will consider the higher cost of housing, travel, higherconsumer costs and wear and tear. The seven-member panel, which has been drawn from public, private, tradeunion and academic spheres, will also look at how pay weighting can contributeto improved staff recruitment and retention. Nick Page, CIPD adviser on rewards, hopes that the committee will take intoaccount the high cost of living which is faced by London commuters who liveacross the South East region. “It should now be looked at as South East weighting and I hope thepanel will take this into account,” he said. The panel will consider the growth of reward packages and the implicationsfor people located at the geographical boundaries. It will also investigate thelinks between London weighting and increasing house prices. Committee chairman William Knight is keen to get feedback from London-basedemployers and employees who live in the capital. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

LeBron James defends Ohio State’s Chase Young amid suspension

first_imgNovember 9, 2019 /Sports News – National LeBron James defends Ohio State’s Chase Young amid suspension FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailjetcityimage/iStock(COLUMBUS, OH) — LeBron James on Saturday voiced support for Ohio State football defensive star Chase Young, who was suspended by the university and later said it was because he borrowed money from a family friend.Young said Friday on Twitter that he would not be playing this week “because of an NCAA eligibility issue.”The junior defensive end called his decision to accept the loan “a mistake” and said he repaid it in full last summer.Sources told ESPN that money from Young’s loan was used to help fly his girlfriend to attend the Rose Bowl.James, a former Cleveland Cavalier and Ohio native, defended Young and criticized the National Collegiate Athletic Association in a series of tweets.“The fact Chase Young even had to borrow money from a family member just so his girlfriend could come see him play in one of the biggest games of his life (Rose Bowl) should tell you all you need to know,” James wrote in a tweet. “And since y’all always wanna know more he paid it back to his family member.”In another post, James said, “They don’t care about them kids at all. Only about how they can make them [money],” referring to the NCAA.The NCAA declined to comment on James’ remarks when reached by ABC News.It is a school’s decision to play, or not play, an athlete, according to the NCAA. The organization is waiting to hear back from Ohio State as to whether Young did violate any rules, and if a violation did occur, the association would then decide how long the suspension will last.Ohio State self-reported the potential violation, according to the NCAA.The Ohio State Department of Athletics said in a statement that Young would sit out for Saturday’s game against the Maryland Terrapins “due to a possible NCAA issue from 2018 that the Department of Athletics is looking into.”The suspension comes a little more than a week after the NCAA decided to break its long-held rule of forbidding student-athletes from earning income by voting unanimously to allow them to profit from their names, images and likenesses.Young, a Maryland native, is considered a potential No. 1 pick in the upcoming 2020 NFL draft.

Keith Thomson’s Week

first_imgBack from the USA May 6th. The swifts have made their annual return to the Museum tower; exactly on schedule. But safety regulations now prevent anyone except researchers from scaling the ladders to see the nesting boxes from inside. An article appears Private Eye trashing our plans repairs to the Museum roof, one the glories of our fabulous Grade One listed building. Unfortunately leaks, due apparently to an inherently inadequate design (1855). Expert consultants to the University Surveyors recommend installing a high-tech false roof over the top: invisible from the street and a completely reversible, non-invasive solution. The Victorian Society prefers a more risky approach of removing and re-sealing all the existing 140 year-old glass tiles. As we have been trying to have an informed dialogue with the Society and English Heritage to find the best solution, it is rather disappointing to find this silly, abusive article in the Eye. The University Gazette announces the transfer of space from Inorganic Chemistry to the Museum when the new Chemistry Research Building is completed. After five years of campaigning, we can build a proper shop and café to serve both the University Museum and the Pitt Rivers Museum next door. Bad news is that installation of a lift to the first floor is now delayed until spring. Explain the roof situation to meeting of Museum Visitors. There is also concern about the appointment of two new curators when I retire in September and Professor Jim Kennedy takes over; Professor John Woodhouse reassures everyone. Interviewed on Radio Oxford about the roof May 8th, try to downplay any controversy. May 9th, letter arrives from English Heritage saying that they disapprove our solution to the roof problem. But we hadn’t formally asked them for approval yet. As the Private Eye correspondent ‘Piloti’ is evidently Gavin Stamp, a member of the EH Historic Buildings Committee, at least the timing of the article is clear. Our ‘please touch me’ stuffed cheetah (Mike O’Hanlon at Pitt Rivers calls him ‘Baldy’ although he isn’t yet) is sporting a bandage on his foot the next day; overly attentive visitors have dislodged a claw. Remind Education Officer Janet Stott to call the vet; no, the taxidermist. May 12th, Radio 4 calls to arrange a programme about the Wilberforce- Huxley ‘Monkey’ Debate (held at the Museum in 1860). Oxford Times leaves message about the roof. May 13th, have to stand in as chair of Pitt Rivers Museum Visitors meeting. Keen discussion of Dr O’Hanlon’s plan for a new building to house the parts of the Museum currently dispersed up the Banbury Road. New site is the old ‘Green Shed’ behind PRM. This to be the exciting £5 millions first stage of a whole new addition to that Museum. Renewed rumours of draconian budget cuts for the University’s libraries and museums. Professor Keith Thomson is Director of the University Museum of Natural History.ARCHIVE: 3rd Week TT 2003last_img read more

Liberal Democrats accused of using misleading data in Oxford East campaign

first_imgFlavible, which describes itself as “an independent commentator on UK politics, specialising in seat projection and statistical analysis,” and was initially set up as a blogging site by students from the University of Plymouth. “Our leaflets make clear that these are projections not polls, and give sources. Both projections and polls can be unreliable, but people find them interesting. The important thing is not to overstate or mislabel them, which we have not done.  The party has been using Flavible projections in York Outer, Esher and Walton, Islington North, Putney, Enfield Southgate, Woking, and Westminster City, as well as Oxford East. The data was earlier used to make bold claims including that Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is at risk of losing his seat to the Liberal Democrats.  “Secondly, a lot of people in Oxford East are thinking of voting differently to the way they did in the 2017 General Election, because of Brexit and other reasons. We are hearing this on the doorstep, but until there are any Oxford East polls, projections from national polls are the best way to give some sense of what might happen.” The UK is due to go to the polls on December 12 in what will be the third general election in four years.  Oxford East is currently a Labour constituency represented by Anneliese Dodds, who managed to keep her seat in the 2017 election with a comfortable win of 65.2% of the vote. This was an increase of 15.2 percent from the previous election, in which Andrew Smith won percent of the vote. On leaflets and other campaign materials, the party has used data from Flavible Politics, which is not a member of the British Polling Council. The data has been criticised for inaccuracy in its technique of taking national polls and then applying them to local areas. The Liberal Democrats remain popular in Oxford West and Abingdon, where Layla Moran narrowly beat the Conservatives to cinch 43.7 percent of the vote. It was the first time the Liberal Democrats had won the seat since the 2005 election, following which it switched to a Conservative hold. “The reason we use these projections is that we want to explain to voters that Oxford East is a Lib Dem vs Labour contest in this election: Meanwhile, the Liberal Democrats were the third-most popular party in the last election, winning only 9.1 percent of the vote and lagging behind the Conservatives, who came in second with 22 percent. “Firstly, the Tories can’t win here – they have not won more than 22% of the vote in general elections for nearly 20 years, and have no councillors. Fernie told Cherwell: “We don’t think our leaflets are misleading. Flavible is a credible organisation with a transparent methodology for making constituency projections based on national polls. The Liberal Democrats have been accused of misrepresenting their position in the polls in certain constituencies, including Oxford East, by using misleading data from an independent pollster in its campaign material for the upcoming election. In Oxford East, the party will be represented by Alistair Fernie, the chair of the Department for International Development and a previous human rights campaigner for Amnesty International UK.  Flavible have been contacted for comment.last_img read more
