Renters of this planet

first_imgISAIAH OTERO To the Editor:After seeing what transpired on the night of March 6 in the Bayonne High School auditorium, I am not proud to live in the town of Bayonne. We really had to have a meeting about the need for a place of worship? How does this Muslim center affect the everyday routine of your life? You wake up in the morning, go to your job/class, work an eight-hour shift, and go back to your house and wait for 5 p.m. on Friday.Who are we to say something humans made up, is not welcomed here? What happened to freedom of religion in America? It doesn’t apply to a bigoted town, and like it or not, that is what we are labeled as all across New Jersey, although many, like myself, came out to support our Muslim brothers and sisters. What are the reasons people don’t want the center here? Is it because of the religion that comes along with it? Because all Muslims are “terrorists” (not my stance)? Well, sadly we live in a world of stereotypes and people continue to perpetuate them; all Jews are thieves, all Christians are judgmental and hypocrites and all Catholics are rapists. Now, I know that these stereotypes are not true, but after hearing the way people acted that night, they made it seem that way. What is wrong with us as a human race? Why must we fight and disagree about things we made up to make ourselves sleep at night. We are just people who rent this Earth. We don’t own it, so why ruin our experience on it with meaningless arguments.I attended that meeting on March 6, because I hoped that humanity would have shined through like a lighthouse beacon through a foggy night, but sadly it did not. To my Muslim brothers, sisters, friends and classmates stay strong and know that you have support in our town. last_img read more

More retailers join the home-grown wheat race

first_imgSupermarket enthusiasm for bread made with 100% British flour continues to grow, with Morrisons looking into making the switch in its in-store bakeries and Tesco launching an advertising campaign highlighting the use of home-grown wheat in its in-store farmhouse loaves.Andy Clegg, Morrisons’ bakery trading manager, told British Baker that he is currently investigating whether the retailer’s in-store bakeries could move over to using all-British flour in its products. “Currently some of our flour is made with a mix of German and British flour, but we are in talks with millers over switching to all British.”We’re looking at this year’s harvest and if we can match the current quality of our flour, we’d be happy to do it. It’s a work in progress, but we are nearly there in terms of quality.”Last year, Sainsbury’s announced that its 400 in-store bakeries had moved to using flour made with home-grown wheat, while Waitrose launched a range of crusty loaves made with only English flour last month. Hovis also generated headlines last year when it committed to using only British flour in its entire range.Tesco is currently highlighting its links with British wheat farmers, with an advertising campaign for ISB farmhouse loaves, which are made with wheat sourced from up to 5,000 British farms. The range, which includes tiger bread, white bloomers, tin and sandwich loaves, is being promoted in full-page newspaper adverts and on railway station billboards as part of a larger campaign to highlight Tesco’s links with British farming.>>Sainsbury’s reaches 100% British flour target>>Waitrose goes after ’great British bread’last_img read more

Top 10 shocking money facts of 2014

first_imgby: Jeff YeagerWith the curtain now drawn on 2014, it’s time to reveal my annual list of most-shocking money facts I discovered in the last year. Here are the 10 most fascinating financial factoids I stumbled across in 2014 that pertain to your money, not all of which originated in 2014.10. $558,328.83: The Cost of Every Item Advertised During the 2014 Super BowlThis staggering calculation comes from writer and former “The Price Is Right” contestant Alex Zeldin on Guff.com. Just for the record, the vast majority of that expenditure would be on automobiles advertised during the game — you’d get about a dozen and a half vehicles, for a total of almost $557,000. And if you’re wondering, all cost figures are before taxes.9. 73 Percent of Parents Ages 40 to 59 Support a Boomerang ChildA 2013 survey by the Pew Research Center found that a staggering 73 percent of parents ages 40 to 59 have helped to financially support an adult child in the last year. Where did that financial support go? A 2013 survey by Bank of America Merrill Lynch found that, of parents who supported their grown children over the last five years, about 10 percent helped with credit card debit, student loans, and insurance, while 15 to 20 percent said that their help went toward health care costs, car loans, cell phone bills, and rent or mortgage expenses. The biggest shocker? In 36 percent of cases, parents forking over dough to their adult kids weren’t sure how their money was being used. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
