That, as it is, is a wheat-free option,” said Engelheart. While Angelhearts will not be a gluten-free facility, the menu will have wheat-free options.For breakfast, the diner will serve tofu scrambles and breakfast burritos using Ithaca soy, as well as different breakfast sandwiches. Chicken and waffles, using the housemade seitan, will also be available.Southern BBQ Sampler Plate: BBQ Tofu, meatloaf, baked mac and cheese, salt potatoes, roasted veggies.The team comes with experience in the food industry.

She said she originally had the idea to open a plant-based restaurant around 2010, but her plans were put on hold when she had to move away from the Ithaca area — but now she is back and ready to make the idea a reality.Engelheart began by taking family recipes and making them vegan. Both meat-eaters and plant-based folks seemed to enjoy them.“I’ve been taking my dishes to different events that, of course, are made up of mixed diners, and they’ve all pretty much liked the dishes that I’ve made,” Engelheart said.Everything in the former pizza shop has been removed to make way for Angelhearts. The space has been freshly painted, and all of the equipment has been replaced. There’s also new flooring and furniture. The team is hopeful that the diner will be ready for a soft opening at the beginning of August if there are no delays.Beet burger loaded with coconut bacon, garlic mayo, cheese, local greens, and a toasted bun with homemade house cut fries. last_img read more

UW-Madison police chief bans ‘Thin Blue Line’ imagery

first_imgMADISON, Wis. (AP) — University of Wisconsin-Madison’s police chief has banned officers from using “Thin Blue Line” imagery while on duty. The move by Chief Kristen Roman follows criticism on social media of a “Thin Blue Line” flag displayed at the police department’s office. The flag, which resembles a U.S. flag but has a blue stripe, is considered a sign of police solidarity, but has also been criticized as a symbol of white supremacy. The Wisconsin State Journal reports that Roman says the flag has been “co-opted” by extremists with “hateful ideologies” and that her department needs to distance itself from the imagery to build trust with the community.last_img

Syracuse drops to No. 13 in final NFHCA rankings before NCAA tournament

first_imgAfter a loss to No. 5 Louisville in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament, Syracuse fell one spot in the weekly NFHCA/Penn Monto Division I Coaches Poll from 12 to 13. Five days after beating the Cardinals by one goal in the season finale, the Orange crashed out of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The No. 13 Orange (12-6, 3-3 ACC) sit four spots behind No. 9 Princeton, who SU faces in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Friday in Storrs, Connecticut. SU is ranked No. 10 in RPI and has beaten three top-five teams – Louisville, Duke and Connecticut. Those three wins proved enough to earn SU a spot in Connecticut’s quarter of the bracket. If Syracuse defeats the Tigers on Thursday, it’ll rematch the Huskies, if the hosts can get past the winner of Fairfield and American. The last matchup between the former Big East rivals came down to penalty strokes, even though UConn outshot the Orange by 16. Freshman Sarah Sinck stopped every shot, diving from post-to-post to keep SU in the game. In total, she made 11 saves, including six across both overtimes. Now, SU might have to face the Huskies again on the same field. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Published on November 12, 2019 at 8:04 pm Contact Adam: [email protected] | @_adamhillman Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Before the Match against Gibraltar: Seriousness is a Key to Success

first_imgThe national football team of BiH tonight, the 25th of March, will play the fifth round of the Group ‘H’ against the team of Gibraltar.Selector Bazdarevic considers the seriousness as the key to success in this match.“The team is very well coordinated, we have done everything to preserve the seriousness and responsibility, in order to play the way we played the previous match. There are some new players, but I think they know the principle and what we’re looking for from the first day and I think that there will be no problems. The match will be complicated if we do not do what we need to do,” said Bazdarevic.“Gibraltar worked a lot, they most certainly watched our matches and got prepared. It is important for our team to do their job in the best way possible, but we have to be really serious, responsible and though. I do believe that we are a better team, despite the great respect that we have” said Bazdarevic, adding that he appreciates Gibraltar, but that everyone will have to play as if they were the best opponents.Asmir Begovic, the goalkeeper of the team, said that the balance of attack and defense is crucial for the match.“We are entering the match seriously and we need to win. Goal difference is not important now, we will try to play as good and as professional as possible. We have to win, and the result is important later,” said Begovic.“You need to have the right solution and the balance of attack and defense in every match. We have to be smart with the ball, but we cannot be too opened because Gibraltar has its own qualities too. We have to be smart and play with a great discipline and then there will be no problems,” said Begovic.(Source: read more

Wiser Driver promises safer taxis

first_imgThe Wiser Driver Campaign aims to improve communication between commuters, taxi associations, drivers and owners. (Image: SA Transport)An effort to bridge the communication divide between commuters, drivers, taxi associations and owners is being made by two young men from KwaZulu-Natal.Durban entrepreneurs Brian Mbambo and Zethembiso Msomi run a non-profit organisation called Give Life Projects. It seeks to innovate the way South African communities work. The pair also run a software development shop called Fish Information.Give Life Projects has pioneered a mobile service available to every taxi commuter, called Wiser Driver. By dialling 1204577#, commuters now have a voice and are invited to speak about their commuting experiences with full assurances that the right owner of the vehicle will receive their concerns.Msomi told Redbull Amaphiko: “The platform we have created to give a voice to the commuters comes at a cost. Primarily, the bigger challenge is awareness. The taxi industry, particularly the drivers, have been stereotyped to behave in a manner that endangers commuters or other road users.“While some cases are true, this is not the entire picture of the driving community. Also, taxi owners themselves are usually unaware of what happens in their taxis while they are in operation. This project has allowed us insight into their lives and they are genuinely concerned for their commuters as they provide the bread they get to place on their tables.”Taxi owners, like their customers, the commuters, are not currently in a position to receive concerns and comments in a timely manner.Wiser Driver offers commuters road safety education and information, such as the importance of wearing seatbelts. It can also be used to report bad behaviour or excellent service from drivers. It is currently available in English and isiZulu to commuters in Durban and surrounding areas. Standard USSD charges apply for usage.WISER DRIVER ORIGINSFor the 15th annual Durban Business Fair in 2013, Msomi and Mbambo developed a mobile competition system that was the catalyst for Wiser Driver.Msomi explained: “For that project, we created a web application that was used to register and automatically enter into the competition the visitors and exhibitors that attended/participated in the Business Fair.“After that success, Give Life Projects championed a tavern campaign in 2013 in partnership with the KZN Liquor Authority and Brandhouse. In this campaign, tavern owners were given first aid training, fire awareness training, first aid kits and fire extinguishers. As a means of collecting data on the success and progress of the initiative, we asked tavern owners to give us feedback via USSD with the names of people they have assisted in their taverns.”USSD is Unstructured Supplementary Service Data. It is used by GSM mobile phones to communicate with the service provider’s computers. In essence, it is used for browsing, prepaid callback service, mobile-money services, location-based content services, menu-based information services, and as part of configuring the phone on the network.TAXI ASSOCIATION PARTNERSWiser Driver has partnered with 16 taxi associations in Durban and should a user report any issues, the problem is immediately communicated to the owner of the taxi in question as well as the taxi association under which the taxi operates.Internal disciplinary policies of the taxi owner’s operation and taxi association come into play after the report is made.“We wanted to introduce an independent system of accountability for taxi drivers and a degree of transparency by facilitating communication between commuters and taxi owners,” Msomi said.“Aside from taxi owners, drivers and associations, other players that work with this sector have also given us a great reception as well. The likes of these are our partners, namely: CMH DatCenter Durban, Miami Towlines and Jacks Tyres.”The significant challenge was creating an application that could be accessible from any mobile device. That challenge was met, and roll out has been smooth.“The challenge remains now to bring this application to the attention of as many people as possible in order to establish a new standard in the taxi industry,” Mbambo said. “We share our project in order to cultivate ambassadors who will help us help the owners be more responsible and more concerned and act accordingly when commuters communicate their concerns to them.”SUCCESS STORYSoon after its launch, Wiser Driver received its first reports from a commuter, commenting about a taxi driver.“We received our first negative report from a commuter about a particular driver who was speeding excessively. The owner of that taxi was very quick in addressing the issue with his driver,” Msomi said.“After observing the data that we had collected from the system, we then held a series of feedback sessions with our stakeholders. As unconventional as this seems, the thinking behind it is to decrease the chances of that particular taxi being involved in or causing an accident. By chance, they said the taxi was also in need of a good set of tyres .Together with our partners, Jacks Tyres and CMH DatCenter Durban, we announced a pre-emptive measure action plan where we gave a brand-new set of tyres to the taxi.”The other participating taxi owners were given wheel alignment vouchers, courtesy of Jacks Tyres and CMH DatCenter Durban.last_img read more

Ford to work on self-driving cars with taxi and delivery functionality

When that happens, Ford wants to be the company supplying taxi operators with vehicles.In a blog post, Ford vice president of autonomous vehicles, Sherif Marakby, said the company is aiming to build a self-driving car that maximizes ‘utilization time’, while also evolving to the new needs of taxi operators and delivery services.See Also: Ford patents removable wheel for self-driving vehiclesFord makes a point that the new customer is not the individual, but a company. Instead of selling a car to a consumer, it is sold to Uber or Lyft and then used by hundreds of commuters every day.We’re developing self-driving technology because the world is changing rapidly. For many people who live in large cities, owning a car is no longer a viable choice,” said Marakby.“Ride sharing and hailing is on the rise, and shopping at malls is giving way to buying online, which is increasing package delivery services. Therefore, we’re building a business to capitalize on both of these trends. We plan to develop and manufacture self-driving vehicles at scale, deployed in cooperation with multiple partners, and with a customer experience based on human-centered design principles.”Decades of experience gives an edgeThe automaker has spent decades working with partners in the taxi and delivery industry, which it said gives it the edge on the competition. In the post, Marakby said the first self-driving cars to come out of Ford’s factories will be hybrids, due to their range advantages compared to electric.Ford is also putting heavy emphasis on a “human centered design approach”, which is currently being researched at the company’s team in Palo Alto. It said it will work with partners to ensure that its self-driving cars are a force for good on the roads, instead of a disruptor.The current goal is for a self-driving Ford by 2021, though the company’s head of research said it may be 2026 before customers can buy one of those vehicles.last_img read more

Bayern Munich Kovac fears for Coman

first_imgBayern Munich manager Niko Kovac fears for the club’s winger Kingsley Coman after he picked up an injury in their opening game of the season against Hoffenheim.The manager who was taking charge of his first game in the Bundesliga fears Coman could have reinjured the same ankle that underwent surgery back in February.The Frenchman was helped off the pitch after being on the receiving end of a strong challenge from Hoffenheim’s Nico Schulz.The 22-year-old was making his first Bundesliga appearance since a blow to the same ankle scuppered his hopes of a spot in France’s World Cup squad.While the extent of the damage is not yet known, Kovac is concerned it could force Coman into another lengthy spell on the sideline.“It doesn’t look good for now. He is in severe pain,” the Croatian told reporters.” As quoted by SportsKeeda.RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, Robert LewadowskiMatch Preview: RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 RB Leipzig will have the chance to prove their title-winning capabilities when they host Bayern Munich today at 18:30 (CET).“He will have tests tonight.
