Specialist patisserie Maître Choux has opened today in South Kensington, London. It is the brainchild of top pastry chef Joakim Prat and ‘brings a contemporary twist to a classic French speciality’. The core range will be joined by changing specials that showcase different flavours and visuals.It will offer a range of éclairs, choux and chouquettes, which are empty choux pastry casings traditionally eaten in France for a snack or breakfast.While primarily a patisserie, Maître Choux will also offer seating for a few customers where they can eat and drink quality teas, coffees or hot chocolate.Prat has previously held the position of Joël Robuchon’s head pastry chef at L’Atelier, before moving on to Mayfair’s The Greenhouse. He held the same position at Can Fabes in Barcelona, meaning that Maître Choux will be the only pastry shop in the UK with a three-Michelin star chef at the helm, it claimed.The patisserie will open from 7.30am to 7pm Monday to Friday and from 10am to 7pm on Saturday.

MTN is implementing Zakhele, its BEE deal. MTN also provides broadband in South Africa. (Images: Bongani Nkosi) MEDIA CONTACTS • Maphamola Lebelo MTN Group Communications +27 83 212 9918 RELATED ARTICLES • Boost for black-owned firms in South Africa • MTN deal boosts online content • MTN in new empowerment deal • Sasol’s BEE deal the biggest yet • Black economic empowermentBongani NkosiMTN, the biggest mobile phone operator in Africa, has finally launched its R8.1-billion (US$1.1-billion) broad-based black economic empowerment (BEE) shares scheme in South Africa.This is welcome news for current and potential investors, as the deal has been on the cards for two years now and looked set to be plagued by further delays in July 2010, when it was announced there were “severe constraints in financial markets”.The name of the new BEE scheme is Zakhele, which means “built it yourself” in local Nguni languages. It came into effect on 30 August.MTN is inviting share applications from previously disadvantaged black South Africans, which by law includes African, coloured, Indian and Chinese citizens. Individuals and groups can apply for shares.The 4% equity deal will increase the group’s BEE ownership, which currently stands at 29.9% when combined with its other economic empowerment initiatives like the Asonge scheme facilitated by the National Empowerment Fund in 2007.MTN Zakhele is the largest empowerment deal in South Africa’s telecommunications industry history, following Vodacom’s R7.5-billion ($1-billion) BEE scheme in 2008. The Vodacom deal also targeted previously disadvantaged black South Africans and benefited the group’s partners, Royal Bafokeng Holdings and Thebe Investment Corporation.“MTN believes that broad-based BEE participation is important to its future success as a group,” MTN president and CEO Phuthuma Nhleko said in a statement.The group has supported black empowerment since 1994 and will seek to provide long-term and sustainable benefits to black South Africans, Nhleko said.“It is for this reason that we have structured the new MTN BEE transaction through an offer to the black public, acting as far as possible within the letter and the spirit of the codes and empowerment requirements for South African businesses.”Karel Pienaar, MTN South Africa managing director, said in July that the empowerment transaction “will enhance MTN SA’s BEE credentials and supplement other areas of the BEE scorecard such as preferential procurement, skills development, employment equity and enterprise development”.Black investors who qualify for the scheme are being offered shares at R20 ($2.70) apiece. The minimum investment amount is 100 shares, which is worth R2 000 ($270).MTN and the Public Investment Corporation have made 75-million shares available through the Zakhele scheme, which is planned to run for six years.MTN black employees will also benefit The group said it will offer about 0.1% of its issued share capital to its Employee Share Ownership Plan to benefit BEE-eligible employees. Management and directors of the JSE-listed company will not be allowed to participate in this scheme.MTN is a big player in South Africa and creates stiff competition for other local operators like Vodacom and Cell C. It’s a multinational firm, operating in 21 African countries and the Middle East. In 2006 it had 40-million subscribers, and this number has been growing ever since.

I wasn’t expecting it to be as popular as it turned out to be. Don’t get me wrong I was hoping people would enjoy it but when I saw what people were saying I got teary eyed and got a feeling of euphoria (i guess would be the best way to describe it) it was such an awesome experience…I wrote in the description a definite for Doctor Who fans, I was wrong, it’s turning out to be a definite for the whole geocaching community. A very much appreciated thank you to the geocaching community for all the logs posted and logs to be posted for “Doctor Who #13″.”What geocachers are saying:“One of the Best caches I’ve found in our tenure as geocachers! I wish I knew about the Dr Who series before finding this because after a first failed attempt to enter the Tardis I did my research. That just added to my appreciation of this cache when I returned to successfully log it! Simply awesome, a masterpiece of engineering and workmanship!” – Timpat
Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… mike melanson Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Although most of your friends may not be jumping at the opportunity to share their online connections with the likes of the U.S. Census Bureau or the local chamber of commerce, local, state and federal agencies alike have joined the ranks of parents, grandparents and others new to the social networking scene. That’s right, the U.S. government is joining Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and any number of other social networking sites in droves and they want to be your friend.And here we thought grandpa joining Facebook was really the death of its coolness.A recent report by the talent management companies Human Capital Institute and Saba brings us the numbers, estimating that 66% of government workplaces now use social networking tools, with 65% using more than one tool. The report compares the government’s use of social networking tools with that of the private sector, noting that the government still trails with 29% not using any type of social networking compared to 15% of the private sector. But what does the breakdown look like? A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#news#web The one stat we found most interesting in the above graphic was that only 23% use some sort of chat or communication tool, something we here at ReadWriteWeb couldn’t function without. A majority of social networking use, the report points out, consists of existing sites, such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.The report also found a significant difference in social network adoption between federal and local governments, with federal agencies much more likely to use the tools, noting that this is likely a result in differences in funding from state to state. Currently, security concerns appear to be the number one reason for government workplaces hold off on using social networking, although we have another concern – how will they be held accountable under public record laws, which are meant to keep government open and transparent to the public? We have to hope that instant messages and Facebook chats between government employees will be recorded the same as government emails so that when something goes wrong, as it inevitably does, we have a trail to look back on. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – MARCH 29: Head coach Rick Pitino of the Louisville Cardinals reacts as he coaches against the Louisville Cardinals during the Midwest Region Semifinal round of the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at Lucas Oil Stadium on March 29, 2013 in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Saturday’s fantastic Kentucky-Louisville game should have made headlines for the great game on the court, but an alleged gesture by Cardinals coach Rick Pitino as he exited the floor has captured the attention of the college basketball world. Following his team’s two point loss, a Kentucky fan tweeted a video of Pitino allegedly giving the middle finger to taunting Wildcats fans. It is hard to tell definitively what the gesture Pitino makes is, but a new video has come out that gives a slightly better angle.This video, posted to Facebook by Adam Joseph Gatzke, is still grainy, but it definitely looks like Pitino extends a finger, and it doesn’t look like it could be his index finger to make a “No. 1” gesture, as Pitino said was the case.Between this incident, and Pitino skipping his post-game press conference, and the looming questions surrounding his program due to the sex scandal that broke before the season, Pitino is having a very rough 2015. Fox Sports’ Aaron Torres has gone as far as to call him the “least likable” person in college sports. If he did, in fact, flip off a number of fans, even if they taunted him, it doesn’t help his case there.[Reddit]
CALGARY, A.B. – Calgary-based CEDA announced today that it has acquired Breakthrough Oilfield Services Ltd., which is based in Dawson Creek.Before the acquisition, Breakthrough was owned and operated by Derek Loomis. The acquisition is the second such merger involving a Dawson Creek-based company by CEDA in the past year. Last November, the company bought Joe Loomis Trucking which was founded by Joe Loomis in 2006.“The addition of Breakthrough Oilfield Services ties in well with our existing operations in the prolific Montney region and complements our core service offerings,” said Kevin Fleury, President and Chief Executive Officer of CEDA. “This acquisition strategically aligns with our vision for continued growth and expands our presence in this region,” Mr. Fleury added. CEDA said that Loomis and the rest of Breakthrough’s workforce will be joining the the company, which will also be adding Breakthrough’s pressure trucks, hot oilers, fluid haulers, tank trucks, hydro vacuum and combination vacuum units to its fleet.“We’re excited to join a successful and a growth oriented organization that can provide complementary service offerings to our existing client base,” said Derek Loomis. “The sale also provides our employees development opportunities within a larger organization.”
CALGARY, A.B. –The National Energy Board has endorsed an expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline following a reconsideration of its impact on marine life off the B.C. coast.The energy regulator says an increase in tanker traffic resulting from the pipeline would hurt southern resident killer whales and increase greenhouse gas emissions. Stand.earth, which had tried unsuccessfully to widen the scope of the board’s reconsideration, had said before the ruling that it expected the board to endorse the project again.“Today’s recommendation is the direct result of the Prime Minister’s Office telling the NEB and federal bureaucrats to ‘get to yes’ on this project,” Tzeporah Berman, director of the Vancouver environmental group, said in a statement.“Scientific evidence filed with the NEB clearly shows that there is not enough data to ensure the safety of the marine environment … and that the NEB failed to address the climate impacts of this project.“The Trans Mountain pipeline is not in the public interest and will never be built.” But it says those consequences can be justified in light of what would be the pipeline’s benefits.“While these effects weighed heavily in the NEB’s consideration of project-related marine shipping, the NEB recommends that the government of Canada find that they can be justified in the circumstances, in light of the considerable benefits of the project and measures to minimize the effects.”The energy board says it will impose 156 conditions on the project if it is approved. It has also made 16 new recommendations to the federal government.Among those recommendations are measures to offset increased underwater noise and the greater chance that a whale could be hit by a ship. They also include suggestions for better spill response and reducing emissions from tankers.The board notes that the new recommendations deal with areas outside its jurisdiction, but within the purview of the federal government.Reaction from environmental groups was swift. Alberta has been fighting hard for the Trans Mountain expansion so that the province could move more crude oil to ports and from there to lucrative overseas markets.The energy board’s original approval of the project was set aside last summer by the Federal Court of Appeal, which said the regulator had not properly considered marine life.The NEB’s report starts the clock on a 90-day period for the federal government to decide whether the project should proceed.Officials in Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi’s office have said a final decision won’t be made until consultations with affected Indigenous groups are complete.The consultations were also an issue the federal Appeal Court raised when it put a halt on the project. It said talks with First Nations in the area had been insufficient.The regulator’s support does not guarantee restart of construction on the controversial pipeline. Sven Biggs, climate campaigner for Stand.earth, predicted before the ruling that there will be more lawsuits and delays resulting from the board’s support of the project. He also said there will be protests in the streets and along the pipeline route if Ottawa decides to go aheadVanessa Adams, spokeswoman for Sohi, wouldn’t comment on Thursday on whether a cabinet ruling could be delayed.She said in an email the federal government wants to “achieve the required public trust” to help move resources to market by first addressing environmental, Indigenous and local concerns.She said a 60-member consultation team in British Columbia and Alberta has met with more than 85 of 117 Indigenous groups that would be affected by a Trans Mountain expansion and more meetings are taking place daily.
New Delhi: The Centre has cancelled the sixth and seventh rounds of coal mines auction under which it was planning to put on sale 19 blocks.The coal ministry in a notice to the bidders said that “the 6th Tranche and 7th Tranche of auction stands cancelled.”However, the government did not specify the reasons for the cancellation.”Accordingly, the tender process of the coal mines…stands cancelled,” the ministry said.Under the sixth round, the government had earlier announced the auction of 13 blocks for the regulated sectors, including iron and steel, cement and aluminium.
