CHEF MARTIN ANDERSON TO OPEN NEW DELI AND COFFEE SHOP

first_imgChef Martin AndersonTOP Donegal chef Martin Anderson is opening a new coffee shop and deli in Letterkenny.The Donegal Daily columnist said it would be the culmination of years of hard work and ambition. It will be based at the Rossview Business Park and will be launched in early spring. It will be called Sonder.Writing in his column for Donegal Daily today, Martin said: “I am in the process of opening my own food business here in Letterkenny. “Over the years I’ve built a loyal following of real food lovers and it is my intention to open a coffee shop and fresh food deli offering both sit-in and grab-and-go meals.“This has been a dream of mine for many years and I’m delighted to finally get the opportunity to do it. The recipes and advice I give here on Donegal Daily will all come to real life very soon. Thank you for your support and I look forward to cooking you for you very, very soon.”The name for the new premises for foodies – Sonder – has caused a stir.So here’s the definition from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows!: sondern. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.   CHEF MARTIN ANDERSON TO OPEN NEW DELI AND COFFEE SHOP was last modified: January 8th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Zuma talks partnerships, jobs and other things

first_imgAll of us must participate to make sure the programme we’ve put forward works – so says the president in a call for unity to meet South Africa’s potential.President Jacob Zuma called on all South Africans to participate in taking the country forward.The government was doing its part, now do your part and invest in South Africa, he said, calling on business, labour, civil society and residents to form a partnership with the state.He was speaking at a business breakfast briefing, hosted by Brand South Africa, the SABC and The New Age at Grand West Casino in Cape Town on 10 February 2012. Just a few hours before, he had said goodnight to his guests after delivering his fourth State of the Nation Address (SONA) in Parliament.The mood at Grand West was jovial; everyone was relaxed and satisfied. The president himself was fresh-faced and upbeat.At the breakfast were government ministers, deputy ministers and business people, all armed with their questions. The briefing was broadcast live on SABC, and the general public was able to send in their questions for the president on Twitter and SMS.The openness of the dialogue was precedent-setting for a sitting South African president, and certainly marked a change in the government’s way of doing business.“We want to do things differently. We want to take South Africa forward. We believe we’ve made progress, but we know that there are challenges,” he began. The government was tackling the economy in a way that it had not done in the past. “We can’t only do politics; we must also do the economy.”Zuma said the government’s major programme was infrastructure as it believed that building infrastructure would give opportunities to all.The government was creating an enabling environment and building infrastructure, and business needed to invest in opportunities that would open up. This would bring jobs and so improve the quality of life for all.“We have discussed the difficulties of doing business in South Africa. We are opening this. You must participate in this window period.”Partnership was a big theme for Zuma, who called on business to work with the government to deal with the negative impact of job losses. Training was mentioned as a possibility. “We must create the kind of projects that can create jobs.”Asked what was different for workers in his SONA – we’ve heard this all before, was the criticism – he said: “We’ve created an environment where jobs can be created. We have a massive infrastructure programme; there is money for it. The private sector must see the opportunities for investment, and invest. The logical consequence of that is jobs.“You can’t have jobs without investment and the government is creating an environment for investment.”He had three items on his wish list from the private sector: invest in the country, have confidence in the country, and big business must help small business.A hot potato issue, especially given that the Mining Indaba has just finished in Cape Town, is the nationalisation of mines. The final word on the topic came from the president. Setting many minds at rest, and garnering a round of applause, he said: “Nationalisation is not our policy. It is as clear as that. Our policy is a mixed economy.”Of potential, he said Africa was one of the fastest growing regions in the world, and we should invest in that potential. “South Africa has the potential to grow. Working together, we can take advantage of Africa, the Brics countries and the changing economy. Invest in this country; invest in your future.”Brief questionsAsked what keeps him awake at night, the president answered: the plight of the poor. “I am kept awake thinking of ways to alleviate their plight.”He pointed to South Africa’s strategic global importance in regards to shipping, saying it did nothing in its waters for its economy, despite the shipping lanes that passed the country. There were massive opportunities in this sector.Of toll roads, another hot potato, he said they were necessary for road maintenance. However, the issue was not closed. South Africa was unusual in that the government was open to discussion of ideas and policies it had put forward.In answer to a question from the floor, the president said fronting in business – whereby companies use black people as figureheads to up their black economic empowerment ratings – would be punished. The details of what that punishment would be still had to be worked out, though. The law must come first, he said, and the details would come after.Of small towns, their factories and rural areas, he said the government was talking of reviving the economy and development of those regions as part of its plan.Asked about what was being done to stop farm murders, he pointed out that as crime was falling, so were farm murders. The police were working with farmers to stop this crime.The police were also working hard to address the issue of piracy. Many raids had already been carried out.Regarding service delivery, the government had delivered to some degree, but there were still challenges. There was electricity and water available where there had been none before. “The question of infrastructure remains a challenge.”The Italian ambassador offered his country’s and Europe’s help – we could share experiences, promote investments and help you avoid the mistakes we made in industrial policy and job creation, he said, to which Zuma replied that South Africa was certainly keen to learn what went wrong, and what would happen to alleviate the present economic crisis.Questioned about land reform, Zuma again spoke of the Green Paper on Land Reform he had mentioned in his SONA. “We are looking at those issues,” he said. “The fact is that lots of land was taken away and many people were left landless. We can’t let this continue. We need frank views from South Africans on how to solve land issues.”last_img read more

Cooper Farms adds a new sow farm

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Cooper Farms held an open house and ribbon cutting on April 22 for their new sow hog farm, Pheasant Run, located in Mark Center.The new farm will be home to female hogs and their piglets. Utilizing state of the art technology, Pheasant Run takes farming to a new level.“We like to think of it as more of a smart barn,” said Kevin Stuckey, Sow Division Manager. “With the help of technology we can provide high quality individualized care for each animal in the barns.”This technology controls barn temperatures, alternating fans, airflow and cooling cells to keep a consistent and comfortable climate for the hogs at all times. The system also has the ability to self-heal.“If a fan were to stop working correctly overnight, the system would recognize that and turn on a different fan in the same area,” said Bud Koenig, Facility Maintenance Manager.Open pen gestation allows the pregnant sows to roam in large stalls of 80 sows each.It will also feature electronic feeding stations to provide the pregnant sows with individualized diets and care, while in the open pens.“With each new farm we build, we are working to improve the environments for the animals, and make them more comfortable by using the latest technology available,” Stuckey said.The farm sits on approximately 640 acres and will use a center pivot system to apply all-natural fertilizer on 120 tillable acres. Pheasant Run farm will bring new jobs to the area, employing 20 full-time team members, one certified livestock manager and 18 other indirect jobs at the farm’s completion.last_img read more

Down six. Down three. Oh, tied?

Ask Ashutosh Gowariker, who has decided to create yet another epic movie, Mohenjo-Daro, on the 5,000-year-old city that remains a historical puzzle. A smart choice. The Jodhaa Akbar director won’t face the long arm of the law or people baying for his blood this time around. Here’s what you can expect.What language did they use? No one knows, except that, well, they did not speak Hindi. New research shows their script to be an old version of Tamil.Kareena KapoorGet ready for a very different Hrithik. He will have to sport a beard, if not a shaved upper lip (say historians), long hair (he looks nice in that) held in place by a hairband or in a bun (Mohenjo-Daro men did that a lot) and wear a toga, with one bare shoulder. Weird, but leaves plenty of scope for the Greek God of Bollywood to show off his muscles.Sonakshi SinhaThe Censor Board will be aghast if the film is too close to history. Remember the bronze dancing girl of Mohenjo-Daro? She had bangles all the way up one arm and nothing else on. Women in those days mostly went around naked or in tiny skirts.Expect a Bond girl moment at the Great Bath of Mohenjo-Daro, the world’s first swimming pool, with a skimpily clad heroine stepping out of the water and breaking into a song.Priyanka ChopraBut who will be the heroine? A cat fight is on between three beauties-Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Sonakshi Sinha-for the plum role. Check out some ancient figurines.
