Shell looks to Ubitricity as it expands low-carbon presenceThe move by Shell, one of the world’s largest oil and gas producers, is the latest sign of the company’s strategic shift away from fossil fuels as it targets net-zero emissions by 2050.Like many of its European peers, the Anglo-Dutch oil major recently embarked on a transition towards renewable electricity production and clean energy services, as it responds to investor pressure over climate change and positions itself for a decarbonised future.István Kapitány, executive vice president of Shell Global Mobility, said: “We want to support the growing number of Shell customers who want to switch to an EV by making it as convenient as possible for them. On-street options such as the lamp-post charging offered by Ubitricity will be key for those who live and work in cities or have limited access to off-street parking.”Shell currently operates around 1,000 rapid charging points across hundreds of retail locations, and provides access to a further 185,000 third-party units globally.In the UK, where Ubitricity holds a 13% market share, the government recently announced a ban on the sale of new combustion-engine vehicles from 2030, in an effort to encourage customers to make the electric switch.But to enable this oncoming transition – some estimates anticipate as many as 10 million EVs on British roads by 2030, compared to a few hundred thousand today – scaling up charging infrastructure quickly will be crucial.Oil companies that have for years serviced the petroleum-vehicle market are now showing strong interest in electrified mobility services.France’s Total last year acquired Blue Point London, the largest network operator in the country’s capital, as part of its own effort push to decarbonise – as well as other similar investments across Europe.UK major BP operates the UK’s largest EV charging network through its subsidiary Chargemaster, and has said it wants to increase the number of charging points it operates globally to 70,000 by the end of this decade – an almost 10-fold increase on its current portfolio.Sam Raciti, UK general manager at Bolt – a ride-hailing business that works with Ubitricity – said Shell’s acquisition is “affirmation that all businesses need to evolve their operations, products and long-term vision for the sake of the planet”.Bolt and Ubitricity have partnered to identify locations where EV chargers might be installed to encourage more drivers to choose electric alternatives.“It’s even more pressing that companies which rely on current infrastructure and commodities focus on the future,” Raciti added. “We have only just started our mission of offering greener ways for people to move around the world’s cities – it’s encouraging to see companies such as Shell demonstrating their own commitment to that journey.” Ubitricity operates the UK’s largest public network of electric vehicle charging points Ubitricity integrates charging technology with existing on-street infrastructure (Credit: Ubitricity) Royal Dutch Shell has agreed to buy Ubitricity, a German provider of on-street electric vehicle (EV) charging points, for an undisclosed fee.Ubitricity operates charging infrastructure across Europe, and is the UK’s largest public network provider with more than 2,700 EV chargepoints installed.It integrates charging technology into existing street infrastructure such as lampposts and bollards – a method aiming to overcome the challenges faced by EV owners who do not have access to private driveways for home charging.“Particularly in larger cities where there is limited access to off-street parking, this is the solution many people have been waiting for to allow them to transition to EV ownership,” said Ubitricity chief executive Lex Hartman.Subject to regulatory approvals, the deal is expected to be finalised later this year.
Anyone noticed a change in supermarket hot cross buns this year? Did you observe, perhaps, that the fruit was particularly moist? Well, you would be right.More and more, big industrial bakers are insisting that their vine fruits are pre-soaked in orange juice or water to give them extra succulence. It means the wet dough does not leech into the dried fruit, so it gives a softer product with better keeping qualities. It’s a trick of the trade from the craft sector, adapted by the plant sector, says Whitworths’ business unit director, ingredients Dan Sparshatt.With innovation often quoted as the lifeblood of the food industry, what else is new with fruits, nuts and seeds? Sparshatt says: “Soaked fruits are now our biggest seller to bakery, far and away. We are operating in challenging times, with cost an important factor, but customers are still innovating on fruits, nuts and seeds either to allow cost savings or to add value to the product or even both.”One innovation that ticks both those boxes is the increasingly popular soft fruit option, where a base fruit is infused with a fruit juice concentrate, he says. Apple infused with blueberry juice is a big seller, for example and the product comes out at half the cost of a blueberry. Flavours such as mango and passion fruit also lend themselves well to this patented technology and there is rising demand.But it would be difficult to identify “the next big thing” he adds. Tastes have not really changed dramatically, with raisins and sultanas remaining top sellers. None of the superfruits have really gained critical mass.However, there are plenty of interesting ideas around; plantain chips was one new product launched in the UK recently, for example. But these introductions “need the craft sector to make something of them by launching interesting new products”, he says.Quick reactionThe craft sector is often the early adopter of innovation, he suggests: “They can react quickly to trends and they have the skills to innovate. But we also see innovation in the industrial sector both can learn from each other.”Frank Horan, director of Unicorn Ingre-dients, a big seeds supplier to bakery, agrees that the craft sector often leads the way. “In the craft bakery sector, seeds remain a core inclusion,” he says, “but craft bakeries are moving increasingly into other kinds of ingredients, such as sun-dried tomatoes and olives, to add value to their products in the face of competition from plant bakers’ seeded breads.”In the industrial bakery sector, linseed, sunflower and pumpkins seeds are the mainstay inclusions in bread, he adds, with sesame seeds falling out of favour a little due to allergy concerns.Meanwhile, Derek Donkin, CEO of the Southern African Macadamia Growers’ Association, says macadamia nuts may be the next big thing. Sales in the UK have increased by 45% over the past five years and the bakery sector has played a huge role in this growth, he says. “NPD departments are increasingly looking for new ingredients that can add value, set their products apart from competitors and impress adventurous consumers.”Whole macadamias, halves or chips are proving popular with small artisan bakeries, as well as industrial companies, due to their luxury appeal, health benefits and value-adding qualities, he says. They fall into a similar price bracket to hazelnuts, pistachios and pine nuts.Meanwhile, Taura Natural Ingredients recommends its bakestable concentrated fruit pieces, carrying up to seven times their own weight in fruit. These come in a wide range of options, including harder-to-use berry fruits, such as strawberry and blueberry.But back to the plantain chips. Dawn Van Rensburg, recently led top bakers in the Richemont Club of Great Britain on a tour of importer John Morley’s premises in Cheshire. The club was on the hunt for new ideas for NPD. And let’s just say they were inspired. Watch out for plantain chips coming soon to a muffin near you.
“It was pretty cool deal. To be able to win this race twice in a row means a lot to me,” said Kiefer, already a Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot candidate. “I grew up watching Tina and Brad (Pounds, McGowan’s daughter and son-in-law) race.” Nick Spainhoward, Garrett Jernagan and 13th starting Daniel West completed the top five. Drivers with proven Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod credentials squared off in that $700 to win feature and it was defending track champion Michael Johnson first across the stripe half a car length ahead of defending race winner Jason Nation. Johnson rallied to pull even, then pulled just ahead on the final lap. Northern SportMods – 1. Michael Johnson; 2. Jason Nation; 3. Nick Spainhoward; 4. Garrett Jernagan; 5. Daniel West; 6.

Sawyer challenged early but there was no catching Kiefer after the sole caution flew at midway. Austin Kiefer repeated as the IMCA Modified feature at Bakersfield Speedway’s Richie McGowan Memorial.

An inspirational local man is beginning an epic journey today in support of iCARE Inishowen.Pat Gaynor from Buncrana is setting out on the Pedals And Togs (P. A. T.) challenge – a 2500km /1500 mile cycle and swim on the Wild Atlantic Way.The charity fundraiser came about by chance, when Pat was painting in iCARE and got a first-hand look at the work they do. He saw how the parent-led volunteer group do trojan work to support young people with autism – all on a shoestring budget. Pat was so moved that he decided to give up six weeks of his time to do a sponsored cycle for iCARE, which kicks off today in Kinsale.He is calling for the public to support his journey via a GoFundMe page here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/2500-km-cycle-for-icare-buncrana-donegalIn his own words, he wrote: “Last year a friend of mine invited me give a hand and help paint the facilities at iCARE. “During the couple of days painting I witnessed the amazing parents and volunteers working with amazing children and young people with autism but more than witnessing, I could feel the remarkable caring, understanding and love provided at the centre.“The painting was very easy. My couple of days painting were a humbling experience.“At this time I was looking at a few travel options, trip to India stuff and Woodstock stuff. Nothing in Ireland had entered the radar.“The simple truth is one morning when I awoke the idea of cycling the Wild Atlantic Way was planted in my mind. It was like catchy song that wouldn’t go stop playing.“I can’t explain where it came from but there it was, cycling the Wild Atlantic Way in aid of i. C.A.R.E.“Well, some things just have to be done!” Pat will have the Buncrana community cheering him on during the self-funded cycle, where all monies received will be donated to iCARE.If you would like to donate to the 2,500km cycle, visit: https://www.gofundme.com/f/2500-km-cycle-for-icare-buncrana-donegalPat’s P.A.T. challenge begins in aid of autism charity was last modified: May 27th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)Tags:CHARITY CYCLEiCAREpat gaynor

DED will match the first year’s portion.DED director-general Jürgen Wilhelm, present at the signing with several other dignitaries, applauded the new initiative and the opportunities for development that it presented.“The DED believes that our support of innovative approaches to HIV prevention, such as this one, is key to halting the spread of the disease,” said Wilhelm. He added that the organisation was delighted to be able to contribute, through its association with loveLife, to this exciting new national strategy.Since it seeks to groom a new generation with a new outlook on life and renewed sense of responsibility, said Wilhelm, Connected! would serve as an example to the international community, especially within the Southern African region.Local innovatorsDr David Harrison, former loveLife CEO and now consultant and Connected! project manager, was confident that the initiative would fulfil its five-year goal of building bridges between mainstream South African society and the country’s poor communities.Explaining the three-part Connected! strategy, Harrison said the first step is the establishment of the network that will provide a platform for youth to make their ideas known. “Let their voices be heard, but in a way that is constructive and problem-solving, instead of just angry,” he commented.The second task is to change the mindsets of the youth so they see themselves less as recipients of public redress, and more as local innovators among their people.Lastly, the young innovators will be linked to opportunities. This, said Harrison, is what differentiates Connected! from a number of other leadership programmes, which often only benefit those who already have access to opportunities.“In this way they will show their peers that corruption and graft are not the only ways to get ahead,” said Harrison, “and that a risky lifestyle is simply not acceptable”.LoveLife CEO Grace Matlhape agreed, saying that many young people put themselves at risk not because they are ignorant, but because they feel they have little reason to protect themselves.“We hope to contribute to building leaders who will be inspired to work towards their dream, but will also serve the community and go on to find their place in the world,” said Matlhape.Breaking new groundConnected! will draw on youth who have participated in loveLife’s two volunteer leadership programmes, groundBREAKER and mpintshi (isiZulu, meaning friend), explained Harrison.GroundBREAKERs are the 18- to 25-year-olds who are already familiar with the loveLife mission and vision, have experience in mobilising their communities for good, and in many cases have become local leaders.To date, almost 10 000 youth have graduated from the one-year service programme.In addition, more than 20 000 youngsters between the ages of 12 and 25 have completed training as mpintshis, assisting their groundBREAKER team leader in implementing programmes in schools, clinics and community-based organisations.According to a 2008 survey conducted by Volunteer Service Enquiry Southern Africa, groundBREAKER graduates are powerful advocates for change, are tremendously positive about working with their communities, and often go on to hold leadership roles in community organisations.Furthermore, the survey revealed that groundBREAKERs have better prospects of education and employment. About 60% have found employment or started their own businesses. And almost 50% have enrolled in tertiary studies, compared with the national average of 30% of young people who study after matriculation.With careful nurturing, the partners believe, these will be the leaders of the future. By putting them in touch with an ever-growing country-wide network of similar-minded people, Connected! aims to encourage about 5 000 of these potential young leaders, located mainly in marginalised communities, to become public innovators.At the same time the programme will boost their management, analytical and innovation skills, giving them the tools to address pressing issues in their communities.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Blending ModesYou can use various blending modes to overlay these bokeh effects over your footage. First, add your footage to a sequence, then add one of the bokeh overlays above your footage. Select the bokeh overlay, and then navigate to the Effect Controls for that clip. Under the Opacity section, you will see Blend Mode. You can experiment with different blending modes, but the two most common are Screen and Linear Dodge (Add).Good Uses for Bokeh OverlaysTraditionally, you will see bokeh overlays associated with luxury products, such as jewelry, high-end cars, or beauty products. (They work really well over product shots with a shallow depth of field.) The bokeh overlays will show up best on footage with a darker background, but you can also use them on daylight exterior footage. This works similar to a lens flare effect.Other great uses would be overlaying them on motion graphics to add some realism, or over slideshow images for some secondary movement.Changing the ColorYou can easily change the color of the bokeh overlays using the Lumetri Color effect. Apply Lumetri Color, then navigate to the Curves options, and find Hue vs. Hue. Move the Hue vs. Hue curve up and down to offset the hue color for the bokeh overlay.Create Light Leak EffectsYou can blur the bokeh overlays with a Gaussian Blur effect to simulate the look of light leaks on your footage. After you apply Gaussian Blur to a bokeh overlay, set the blurriness to 1,000 and set the blending mode to Linear Dodge (Add). Next, add a Noise effect and set the Amount of Noise to 4%. This will help break up any unwanted color banding.Simulate a Rack Focus EffectIn order to simulate a rack focus effect, first apply the Camera Blur effect to your footage and to a bokeh overlay above your footage. Reset the Camera Blur values to 0 for both clips. Next, on the bokeh clip, keyframe the Camera Blur from 0 to 40, over a few seconds. Now, on the footage clip, add keyframes at the exact same time-locations as the bokeh overlay. Invert the values on the footage clip, so the Camera Blur starts at 40 and stops at 0. You can then set all of the keyframes to Bezier to smooth them out.Track Matte Text EffectsYou can track matte the bokeh overlays over text for some unique looks. Add a bokeh overlay to your sequence on video track 1. Next, add your text to video track 2 — directly above the bokeh overlay. Apply the effect Track Matte Key to the bokeh overlay clip. In the Effect Controls panel, find the Track Matte Key effect on the bokeh overlay, and set the Matte to Video 2.Track Matte Footage for Double Exposure EffectsYou can also use the Track Matte Key effect to create some cool “double exposure” bokeh looks. Add different footage clips to video track 1 and video track 2 (one directly above the other.) Next, add a bokeh overlay onto video track 3, above the other clips. Apply the Track Matte Key effect to the clip on video track 2. In the Effect Controls panel, find the Track Matte Key effect and set the Matte to Video 3. Finally, change the Composite Using option to Matte Luma.Interested in the tracks we used to make this video?“Dark Swag” by Tiny Music“Playful Groove” by Cymatix“Summer Midnight” by Ethan Rank“State of Flux” by Ethan RankLooking for more video production tutorials?
