Food Service Initiative In Ohio Could Be Prolonged For The Summer Season

An announcement was made by the Ohio Department of Education regarding its proposal to further the Summer Food Service program in order to answer the increasing demands of the children that are recipients of the meals when they are on summer vacation. The department is working with a food service that employs a purchasing solution similar to Chef Mod.

With the help of the Summer Food Service initiative, thousands of young kids are able to eat all over the state. Ever since 2014, there has been an increase in the number of sponsorships for the program. In fact, it is 10 per cent higher than four years ago.

According to the public institution’s superintendent, Paolo DeMaria, children should not stop receiving healthy meals just because school is out for the summer. This is made possible by the Summer Food Service Program which ensures that children gets all the nourishment they need and they can continue having fun while learning at the same time. The children will not have to worry about their meals and instead they can focus on various summer activities such as playing outdoors, reading and sports.

The recipients of Summer Food Service Program are kids between the age of 1 and 18 years old. They are the same ones that depend on school meals alone. Children of special cases including those with disabilities can join the food program until they are 21 years old.

These free meals can be availed in various parts of the state such as schools, universities, colleges, libraries, nonprofits, and housing complexes for low income families, parks, swimming pools, camps and community centers among many others.

Recognition was awarded to the director of nutrition services at Painesville School, Kelly Minnick, along with the nutrition staff of the district because of the effort put in making sure children get their healthy meals even in summer months.

Despite the state’s effort, there are still many children in Ohio that are starving especially during the school break. Food service organizations with purchasing and recipe management software such as Chef Mod should get involve and make sure all the kids are getting the right nutrition.

Bidding War Among Institutions To Host The Bayeux Tapestry

There are different fibres that can be spun into thread but only a handful can be used for embroidery. Most embroiderers choose polyester embroidery thread sets because of the higher quality that does not require any special handling. However, there are different types of polyester threads some priced lower than other types that are more expensive to produce.

The 900-year old Bayeux Tapestry will cross the Channel in a historic loan to France. French President Emmanuel Macron will formally announce the proposal to lend the medieval tapestry that was embroidered to depict the Battle of Hastings. Meanwhile, leading museums and heritage sites engage in a bidding war to gain the right to host the embroidered tapestry.

The 68-meter long tapestry is considered as one of the greatest and most powerfully evocative treasures of the medieval times as well as the historically tumultuous relationship between Britain and France. Even if the tapestry is expected to arrive in Britain in 2022, the announcement of the French President has sparked a contest among institutions from the British Museum to Battle Abbey in East Sussex. It is clear that that everybody wants to gain the lucrative right to host the artwork.

The British Museum was immediately forthright with it is willingness to host the historical tapestry. It is expected that the tapestry will generate a large number of visitors in a single exhibition. The last exhibition that was attended by a great number of people was the Tutankhamen exhibition in 1972. According to Director Hartwig Fischer, they are honoured to host the tapestry that is believed to have been created by British embroiderers.

The British Museum also believes that their exhibition gallery is spacious and long enough to host the Bayeux Tapestry in a single length. The museum has still enough time to prepare for the unending arrival of people.

Embroidery-related products that include polyester embroidery thread sets are available in Bangkok, Thailand. The embroidery products are guaranteed safe with high quality to meet the demands of the textile industry. The polyester threads are strong, with excellent stitchability and reduced puckering. They are available in thin and thick threads with excellent elongation.

Spacer.com.au Raises Funds, Buys Competitor Parkhound

Spacer.com.au Raises Funds, Buys Competitor Parkhound

With self-storage booming across Australia, it can be hard to find cheap storage in Campbelltown, what with all the occupants taking spaces everywhere. Likewise, the market is seeing quite the bit of activity.

Spacer.com.au Pty. Ltd., a peer-to-peer (P2P) self-storage marketplace based and operating in Australia, has recently worked on raising AU$2.7M in funds, which they will then use to acquire its competitor, Parkhound, as well as funding additional expansions and developments. The purchase will add Parkhound’s 55,000 customers and 10,000 parking spaces to the growing network operated by Spacer, though, according to them, Parkhound will continue to operate as its own brand.

Once the company has been acquired, Parkhound’s two co-founders, Robert Crocitti and Michael Nuciforo will be tasked with advising Spacer on how to handle the Parkhound brand once the transaction has been finalized.

CEO Michael Rosenbaum; Spacer.com.au, said in a statement that the aim of this acquisition is to ease Spacer into working alongside commercial operators, whether in parking or property, among others, in order to help them bring in profits using their excess space. He adds that Spacer itself is looking on establishing itself and growing in the US market, as part of the company’s long-term goals, which is aimed at spreading operations across the world. To that end, Spacer has a partnership with Costockage, another P2P self-storage marketplace, one based in Paris, France.

Costockage and Spacer partnered together back in April of 2016, with the aim of expanding both brands into the Asian market. Following that, Spacer acquired Roost Shared Storage Inc. in March. Roost Shared Storage launched itself in San Francisco, with additional operations in Boston and New York.

Rosenbaum says that, with cities becoming denser than ever thanks to urbanization, apartments are cutting down on space, allocating only one parking space for the usual two-bedroom unit, which meant that parking rental space, which tends to go hand-in-hand with self-storage, was very much in demand. He says that the issue is that the demand is several times larger than supply.

Spacer’s further plans for expansion include entering the Chicago and Washington, D.C. markets. The company operates by connecting people who need storage space with homeowners and businesses with extra space that they can rent away, in exchange for a 15% commission.

According to new data released by Uber, a ride sharing platform, the travel time between the central business district going to the Melbourne Airport used to be 35 minutes two years ago but it is now 42 minutes.

One week later, Uber released the data which came from 20,000 of their drivers all over Melbourne. It was found out that during the afternoon, the maximum travel time between the airport and the central business district can get as long as 46 minutes. The data was gathered from the first quarter of 2017.

In the case of Brisbane, the travel time between any corridor and the airports is around 30 minutes and it takes 34 minutes in Sydney while in Perth travel time reached 24 minutes.

The data provided by Uber has been sent to Infrastructure Partnerships Australia, a transport lobby group, in order to be analysed.

Passengers of Uber experienced a delay of nine minutes when they travel between the central business district and the outer parts of the metropolitan.

When traveling from the central business district going to inner areas of the metropolitan, the delay is about eight minutes but the trips taken vice-versa on the same route has a delay of nine minutes.

All of these routes are considered to have higher delays compared to data n 2015.
