Gunns Bakery, Bedfordshire, will be carrying out cake and dough demonstrations during the week, and Bushells Bakery in Lowestoft will be offering deals on its speciality bread range, promoting new dietary products and handing out tasters and ideas cards to its customers.John Gall, owner of Brownings the Bakers in Kilmarnock, Scotland, said Brownings would be supporting the week by offering children special offers on healthy options “to try to educate them on the benefits of healthy eating”.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury boosted its efforts to cut off financing for Mexico’s notorious Sinaloa drug cartel, adding on March 6 kingpin Ismael Zambada García’s brother to its official sanctions list. Jesús Reynaldo Zambada controlled a drug trafficking route via Mexico City’s international airport “on behalf of his brother,” one of the two top figures in the violent Sinaloa group, the Treasury said. Jesús Reynaldo Zambada was arrested in 2008 in Mexico and is awaiting extradition to the United States. The sanctions, established under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act, freeze any assets of Zambada held by U.S. entities and make it illegal for any U.S. entity or citizen to conduct financial or commercial transactions with him. The Treasury also placed such sanctions on two companies in Mexico linked to the Zambadas, an agricultural business and a clothing retailer, both located in Culiacán, capital of the state of Sinaloa. The Treasury “continues to target Ismael Zambada García and his drug trafficking and money laundering network to cripple their influence and deny them access to the U.S. financial system,” said Adam Szubin, head of the Office of Foreign Assets Control.

Ekeji’s latest appointment was coming barely a month after he successfully carried out a previous assignment given to him by the state government as the chairman of a seven-man Imo Sports Commission Review Committee. As the head of Imo Sports Commission Review Committee, Dr Ekeji used his wealth of experience to save the state government from what would have degenerated into a public embarrassment when he resolved an agitation by aggrieved athletes preparing to represent the state at the now postponed 2020 National Sports Festival. The athletes were protesting over unpaid camping allowances ahead of the National Sports Festival earlier billed for Benin City, Edo State before Ekeji stepped in to pacify them amid allegation that they were paid pittance for their three weeks camping.Advertisement Loading…
RELIANCE Masters used their experience to good effect to capture the Shivanandan Mandolall’s Memorial Softball title over their junior counterparts last Sunday at the Mainstay Lake Community Ground.After being invited to bat first in the 15- overs aside affair, Reliance Masters amassed 165-7, with Marvin Pearson smashing an impressive 42, containing three fours and four sixes.He received valuable support from Ravendra Mandolall (36) and Latchmikhant Narine (28). Trevis Simon (2-31) from three overs was Reliance Juniors’ most successful bowler.In reply,the juniors were well on course to getting to their target, as the Mandolall brothers Ravendra and Narendra provided a solid opening partnership of 78 in eight overs. However, once that partnership was broken, with Narendra being dismissed for 29, the scoring rate slowed significantly, and batting became a struggle.But Rovendra Parsram had other ideas, as he gallantly produced a stunning innings of 56, decorated with three fours and four sixes, in a losing cause.Ravendra Mandolall contributed 33, as the juniors reached 158-5 when their overs expired. Pearson claimed 2-34.Meanwhile,Reliance Sports Club had the better of a Select XI. In the six-over exhibition match, Reliance Sports Club batted first and posted 89,and then restricted the Select XI to 78.During the presentation, Ravendra Mandolall, brother of the late Shivanandan Mandolall,thanked the players and sponsors. Shivanandan Mandolall died in 2014 at the age of 31.
DIRIYAH, Saudi Arabia (Reuters) – Britain’s Anthony Joshua beat Andy Ruiz Jr on a unanimous points decision in Saudi Arabia on Sunday to seize back the heavyweight world championship belts he lost to his Mexican-American opponent in a shock upset last June.The ‘Clash on the Dunes’ in Diriyah was for the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles and Joshua dictated the pace from the start with a measured approach that showed he had learned from the mistakes of the past.Going into the 12th and final round, Ruiz needed a knockout to pull off another upset but it never came.The judges scored the fight 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109 to the 30-year-old Briton.“It was his night, man,” said Ruiz as his six-month reign came to an end, calling also for a third encounter that Joshua seemed to welcome.“If you heard, we’re going to do it a third,” said the taller and more athletic Briton.California-based Ruiz had stopped the previously undefeated champion in the seventh round at New York’s Madison Square Garden last June.Joshua described that shock defeat, to a flabby-looking opponent drafted in as a late replacement, as no more than a ‘minor setback’ and he was happy to make light of it again in victory.“Man, the first time was so nice, I had to do it twice,” he told the crowd.“I’m used to knocking guys out but last time I realized ‘hang on a minute, I hurt the man and I got caught coming in’. I gave the man his credit. I said to myself I’m going to correct myself and come again.”Another loss in the early hours of Sunday would have sent the 2012 Olympic super-heavyweight champion’s career into freefall, with some saying already after the last fight that the Briton was finished.He had shown with his preparations, however, that he meant business — stepping into the ring lighter than ever and giving away more than three stones to Ruiz who had weighed in considerably heavier than in their first showdown.“You know the saying ‘Stay hungry, stay humble’,” said Joshua. “I’m humble in defeat and I’m going to remain humble in victory.”Ruiz said he would do it differently next time.“I think I didn’t prepare it how I should have. I gained too much weight but I don’t want to give no excuses. He won, he boxed me around. If we do the third, I’m going to get in the best shape of my life.”

DES MOINES — Governor Kim Reynolds will deliver the annual “Condition of the State” message to the Iowa General Assembly later this morning, the third year she’s done so.Reynolds offered a bit of a preview a week ago at a statehouse forum organized by The Associated Press.“We have a diverse and growing economy, even with some significant challenges, but I’m proud to say that Iowa is in growth mode,” Reynolds said. “We have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, more Iowans working today than at any time in our state history.”This past summer, Reynolds indicated finding new ways to improve access to quality child care, particularly in rural Iowa, would be a priority issue for the 2020 legislative session. She’s been non-committal about what plans she may have when it comes to tax policy.“Stay tuned,” Reynolds said last week, laughing. “…We’re looking at all of it.”Reynolds has met privately with groups to discuss revamping the way the state might allocate new revenue if the state sales tax was raised — and a constitutional amendment requires a portion of that money be spent on water quality and outdoor recreation projects.“We’ve worked very hard to incorporate or hear from anybody who has ideas or interest in addressing that,” Reynolds, a Republican, told reporters last week.Reynolds and Republican leaders in the legislature have repeatedly said if the sales tax goes up, it must be part of a package that winds up lowering the total amount of taxes the state collects.Reynolds is scheduled to begin addressing the Iowa General Assembly this morning shortly after 10 a.m. You can hear live coverage of the governor’s address on AM-1300 KGLO as we’ll join coverage from Iowa PBS starting at 10:00 AM
