Bakehouse data points to regional differences

first_imgOffice workers in the north of England and Scotland are the most likely to buy lunch in a bakery (13%), followed by those in the Midlands and Wales (11%) and the South (6%).A survey by Bakehouse found that supermarkets are the most popular place to buy lunch for Southern office workers (46%), while those in offices in the Midlands and Wales favour sandwich shops (40%) and Scots split their allegiance equally between supermarkets and sandwich shops (35%).When they are out shopping for food, sandwiches are the lunch of choice for the majority of workers around the country. However, those in the Midlands and Wales are the most likely to sample savoury pastries (27%) and sweet bakery products (18%), but Southerners are those most likely to buy other alternatives to sandwiches, such as fruit, crisps, ready meals or soup.And just to bust a few myths, Scottish and Northern office workers spend the most on lunch, forking out an average of £3.15 each day while 3% of Southerners confess to spending less than £1. Those in the North and Scotland are also the most likely to look out for meal deals (43%) while 74% of those in the Midlands and Wales said their lunch-buying habits hadn’t changed recently.Also, many office workers from every region can be tempted to make an impulse purchase if they see an attractive display of pastries: 56% in the South, 57% in the Midlands and 62% in the North.However, clear shelf labels, fully stocked shelves and freshly baked options are all deemed more important than meal deals or money-off offers by everyone across the regions. More than two-thirds of those in each region also agreed that they like to see new products in the freshly baked savoury category.last_img read more

New material delivery service launched

first_img Read Full Story Harvard Direct, a new service that delivers Harvard-owned materials to one of 15 libraries selected by the patron, transitioned on June 5 from from a successful beta test to an established Library service.The service, which is available to all Harvard faculty, staff and degree-seeking students, will be rolled out at additional libraries in the coming months, and will be widely publicized in September 2014.During the six-month beta test, which began in December 2013, almost 32,000 items from Widener, Countway and Harvard Law School Library were pulled and delivered within four days of a patron’s request to one of 15 pick-up locations, which included Andover-Harvard, Cabot, Countway, Fine Arts, Gutman, Harvard-Yenching, Knowledge & Library Services at HBS, Lamont, the Law School Library, Library & Knowledge Services at HKS, Loeb Design, Loeb Music, Tozzer, Widener and Wolbach libraries.During the beta, a majority of requests were made for Widener holdings, reaching 500 volumes per day late in spring semester. Richard Lopez, the reshelving and consolidated retrievals supervisor at Widener, reported a smooth process throughout, saying, “Our biggest surprise was that our student workers enjoy pulling—they like the hunt,” he said.“The success of the beta test is due to the efforts of staff members, who pulled books, drove trucks and received material. Harvard Direct would have been difficult, if not impossible, without the thorough support of staff members at 625 Mass. Ave. and LTS,” said Lee H. Fenn of Access Services.last_img read more

Hamburg’s Leistner vents ‘frustration’ on fans after German cup defeat

first_imgUnbelievable scenes took place in Germany after Hamburg’s elimination from the DFB-Pokal on Monday evening. The former European Cup winners were convincingly knocked out by Dynamo Dresden, who play in the league below them, during a 4-1 demolition job at the Rudolf Harbig Stadion. Yannick Stark, Robin Becker and Christoph Daferner fired the underdogs into a 3-0 lead before the hour-mark and it wasn’t until the 89th minute that Hamburg managed to breakdown their defence. But even when Hamburg eventually bagged themselves a consolation goal, there was a quick response from Dynamo as they advanced to a 4-1 lead with a stoppage-time penalty. However, the game has made headlines across Europe for an incident involving Toni Leistner who appeared to be recorded entering the stands and confronting supporters after the defeat. Loading… The shocking clip shows Leistner becoming embroiled in a physical confrontation with fans, causing stewards to break up the situation before the defender returned to the pitch. It remains to be seen why Leistner took such a dramatic cause of action after his post-match interview, though the footage suggests that the German-made a beeline for a particular fan. read also:VfB Stuttgart vs Hamburger SV Leistner, who may be familiar to English football fans for spending time with Queens Park Rangers, was born in Dresden and previously made 21 appearances for Hamburg’s conquerers. The footage will likely remind supporters of when Eric Dier climbed into the stands after Tottenham’s FA Cup defeat to Norwich City during the back end of last season. It goes without saying, however, that the England international didn’t go as far as starting a physical confrontation with fans who were shouting abuse at him near his family.
