Olympic sprinter Allyson Felix breaks world record held by Usain Bolt 10 months after giving birth

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailEddie Perlas / ESPN Images(DOHA, Qatar) — Olympic sprinter Allyson Felix has smashed a world record held by a man, gold medal-winning track star Usain Bolt, and she did it just 10 months after giving birth.Felix, 33, was part of Team USA’s mixed-gender 4x400m relay team that won the gold at the World Championships Sunday.The win gave Felix her 12th gold medal at the world championships, pushing her past Bolt’s record for the most gold medals of any athlete at the track and field World Championships.Felix’s daughter, Camryn, was born last November via emergency C-section at 32 weeks.The track star had to undergo a C-section “because of severe pre-eclampsia that threatened the lives of me and my baby,” she wrote in the New York Times.Felix returned to competitive racing in July, eight months after giving birth, and has fought ever since to help pave the road for other professional athletes and moms.She was part of a group of female track stars who alleged they were penalized by Nike for being pregnant. After the women spoke out, the company said it would do more to protect female athletes’ pay during and after pregnancy.“I think everything I went through this year … it just brings it all back that it’s so much bigger than myself,” Felix, who went on to become the first sponsored athlete for Athleta, told ESPN at the world championships in Doha, Qatar.Felix was not the only mom to win at the world championships.Jamaican sprinter Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce celebrated her win in the 100-meter race with her 2-year-old son and called it a “victory for motherhood,” according to ESPN.Fraser-Pryce told ESPN she sat on her bed and cried when she found out she was pregnant, but said of her decision to keep competing, “I knew how I felt and I knew I wasn’t ready to go. I had something left to do, and I stayed focused on the goal.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

Pack it up!

first_imgHealth and indulgence are two buzzwords that have peppered many a bakery marketing director’s PowerPoint presentation over the past year. But while the indulgent cakes sector continues to show great gains, healthy cake sales are somewhat stagnant.Despite this slowdown, Anthony Alan Foods has chalked up over half of all low-fat cakes sales in the UK under its Weight Watchers cakes licence – worth nearly £18m in value. The cake range has increased market share in the low fat sector to nearly 56% (TNS Data w/e 21 May 2006), compared to 53% in May 2005.”We’re not surprised by the slight decline in the sector,” says Mark Rooza, UK sales director of Anthony Alan Foods. “Between 2004 and 2005, low-fat cakes outperformed the total cakes market significantly. Over the last few months there has been a natural pendulum as the market readjusts. However, initial figures indicate the next two quarters will reverse this trend and see a swing back to low-fat cakes.”Sales will come from re-invented teatime favourites, such as malt loaf, almond cake slices and cherry Bakewells, marketed as healthy options with fewer calories, he says. Untapped markets in Europe, particularly Germany, present another opportunity. “Retailers and consumers are very different in Europe so we’re trying to understand them better,” he says.But branded sales in the UK will depend on “maintaining the optimum brand versus own-label mix,” says Rooza. “With the domination of retail own-label in this country, it would be difficult to grow market share to more than 60%, but we want to grow cash value. In the next three years, we believe we can grow to around £20-£25m in the UK.”Meanwhile, with feet firmly placed in the ’indulgent’ camp, Gü Chocolate Puds has grown 100% year-on-year to become the number one chocolate puddings firm. Consumers want good quality puddings to “complement today’s discriminating, yet convenience-led lifestyle”, says Becs Hurwitz, marketing manager at Gü. “Our puds have widespread appeal and they stand out well on the shelves.”Quirky innovations include two board games – ’finger tangle’, a take on twister, and ’flick a penny’, which is similar to tiddlywinks – in the pack of its newly-launched Gü 70% Hot Chocolate Soufflé Party Puds, presented in an eight-pack. But the indulgence of the product, such as 70% cocoa chocolate, is driving sales, states Hurwitz. “We aim to lead the quality revolution in the indulgent sectors of ’everyday treat’ and ’occasions’,” she says.Also new are Gü’s Boozy Choc’N Roll Party Puds, made with 53% cocoa chocolate ganache and a dash of liqueur, Gü Hot Chocolate Lava Tarts, made with all butter pastry and filled with a rich chocolate fondant, and Posh Chocs in mint or caramel.last_img read more

Speech: 13 years since Kyoto and the UK is still leading the charge to a low carbon future

first_imgThis article first appeared in The Times Red Box section. Cast your mind back 13 years to 2005. The world was a very different place. The phrase ‘climate change’ was not exactly a buzzword and yet an extraordinary moment occurred. A groundswell of momentum across the globe brought the Kyoto Protocol into force, a pivotal agreement committing more countries than ever to internationally binding targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.Last week the impact of climate change on sports was in the headlines. Climate change affects us all – and if it takes melting ski slopes and waterlogged cricket pitches to get people’s attention, then so be it.Momentum on climate action is accelerating with the UK in the driving seat. Climate change is no longer just a phrase used by environmentalists and scientists, it forms part of our everyday narrative. This is the moment not only for global efforts to reduce our CO2 output, but also for the growth of green industries and for international climate collaboration.Climate change crosses party political lines and doesn’t respect borders. That cross-party support for climate action and UK leadership was demonstrated in 2008 with the introduction of the historic Climate Change Act, setting an ambitious legally-binding target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 80% of 1990 levels by 2050.But it was the Kyoto Protocol that truly kickstarted international action in 2005. When world leaders signed up to the charter, it signalled a sea change. Left unchecked, climate change would ravage our natural environment and, along with it, our health and prosperity.Fast forward 10 years and in 2015 the UK was instrumental in securing the Paris Agreement, committing 175 countries to protect the world from catastrophic warming.Three years ago in Paris, the UK and other developed countries committed a joint contribution of $100 billion to help the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world cope with the increasing risk of droughts and floods and provide access to clean energy. We should be proud that the UK is regarded so highly for its climate action overseas as well as at home.I’m proud that we have got our own house in order. In 2011, the government slashed emissions from 3,000 buildings across Whitehall by nearly 14% in a single year.It is not only a moral imperative that we leave the world in a better place for future generations, there is an economic argument for tackling climate change. The UK has shown that reducing emissions and growing the economy can, and should, go hand in hand. Since 1990 our national carbon emissions have fallen even more and our national income has risen faster than any other nation in the G7.The shift to clean energy presents a multibillion-pound investment opportunity for businesses. Our low-carbon sector already directly employs more than 200,000 people. We are clear: through our ambitious industrial strategy the UK is ready to embrace the economic opportunities presented by the transition to a low-carbon economy.And there’s more good news. Latest figures indicate that more than half of our electricity generation in 2017 came from low-carbon sources such as wind, nuclear and solar. Just 5 years ago, dirty coal power accounted for 40% of our electricity – this figure is now 7%. The government has driven this change, investing more than £52 billion in renewable energy since 2010 and committing to phasing out unabated coal power by 2025. We now have the biggest installed offshore wind capacity in the world, and the cost of offshore wind is constantly falling thanks to government support.On the international stage the UK is leading the charge for clean, green energy. In November the Canadian environment minister, Catherine McKenna, and I launched the Powering Past Coal Alliance, a global coalition of countries, businesses and cities committed to ending unabated coal power. Coal is the dirtiest fossil fuel, emitting twice as much CO2 as gas per unit of electricity generated. Phasing out coal will not only reduce pollution and carbon emissions, it will improve our health.Our action at home and abroad is delivering real results and we are on track to meet or over-deliver against our first 3 carbon budgets. We have come a long way in the last 13 years, but we cannot step off the pedal now. Ambitious climate action must continue, with the UK leading the way to a low-carbon future.last_img read more

Conquer the Data Deluge with New Dell EMC Isilon Innovations

first_imgVerticals like automotive, life sciences and media and entertainment have been experiencing data growth for years. This growth is now expanding across multiple organizations because of the need to drive next-generation workloads like data analytics and artificial intelligence, as well as cloud native applications. There is also the need to run these workloads on premises or in the cloud. These are all adding to the struggles of data growth.This is where Dell EMC Isilon excels. As the undisputed leader in the unstructured data market, we continue to simplify unstructured storage and empower our new and existing customers by consistently addressing their needs through innovation. We are excited to deliver on the investments we are making with scale, management, flexibility, performance, and getting the most out of the technology.At Dell Technologies World we announced a new version of the Dell EMC Isilon OneFS operating system that is continuing to provide the answers to organization’s struggles with data deluge and the impact it has on IT. Isilon OneFS 8.2 enables organizations to grow their Isilon cluster up to 252 nodes, increase performance up to 75% and allows you to continue to manage this under a single namespace. It is simplicity at scale.Isilon scale-out NAS solutions powered by OneFS 8.2 are an ideal choice for next-generation workloads that require enormous capacity and performance because we reduce the complexity. We enable you to consolidate your data without compromising the business and allow you to focus on the performance that is needed for the workload or the applications. All of this while managing petabytes of data as if you were managing terabytes of data. This is why we are the industry leader in the unstructured data market.We do this through our single namespace. A file system that grows simply and easily without additional resources. What do I mean by that? Think of a single file system with let’s say, 120 TB of capacity. This may be suitable for your workloads now, but in 6 months, the amount of data increases and you need more space. In minutes, you can simply add another node and you have more space and performance in a single file system. No need for configuration changes. You need more space in 6 more months, the process doesn’t change. The file system grows, and the applications are not impacted. Now continue this up to 58 PB. That is what Isilon OneFS 8.2 brings to the table.Why is this important to you? When it comes down to it, the business should be focusing on the data, the applications, and the workloads. It should not be focusing on additional configurations, lack of performance, or limiting your scaling capabilities. You should not change how IT works, just because the data is growing. Isilon grows with your workloads and no additional configuration or resources are needed.With Isilon OneFS 8.2, now supporting up to 252 nodes in a single Isilon cluster – 75% more than the previous limit of 144 nodes, Isilon customers can gain massive scalability in capacity and performance reaching 58 PB capacity per cluster and 945 GB/s aggregate throughput per cluster.We made a few additional changes around security. We added multi-factor authentication for increased security of the clusters and tighter access control for SSH. We added SyncIQ encryption for protecting data in flight during inter-cluster replication and now data transfers between OneFS clusters are secure. We also implemented HDFS Transport Data Encryption so when you are deploying Hadoop as a platform, you can ensure your data is encrypted at rest and in motion.And you cannot forget our multi-cloud enhancements. Isilon customers already lower their storage costs by transparently and seamlessly tiering infrequently accessed cold or frozen files to a variety of public and private cloud services. Isilon OneFS 8.2 with CloudPools software, now delivers even more flexibility with support for a range of additional cloud providers (to our previous Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Microsoft Azure support) including Alibaba Aliyun and Amazon cloud for Federal Commercial Cloud Services (C2S). OneFS 8.2 and CloudPools also help organizations simplify cloud storage and data management with seamless integration with Isilon SnapshotIQ, SmartQuotas and SmartLock software.But we didn’t stop there, we also introduced Isilon H5600. It is an ideal choice for next-generation workloads that require enormous capacity and performance. With a highly dense and efficient hybrid storage design that combines four Isilon nodes in a single 4U deep chassis, the Isilon H5600 provides massive capacity and throughput performance. It stores up to 800 TB with 80 SATA drives in a single 4U chassis, scales to over 50 PB in a single cluster and delivers up to 8 GB/s throughput per chassis. You can use 40% fewer nodes and rack units to get the same capacity target. Normally when you increase capacity density, you lose performance to achieve the same overall capacity target, but not with Isilon H5600. For example, in media and entertainment, you can now support one 4k uncompressed media stream per node.Isilon OneFS 8.2 and the Isilon H5600 enable organizations to support demanding workloads with massive capacity and performance along with a highly efficient, dense data storage solution to help organizations shrink their data center footprint and lower costs. Even more important, these new Isilon products help our customers advance their Digital Future and manage massive amounts of data, while accelerating the ability of business to unlock the value of their data capital.To find out more about how Dell EMC Isilon can help you with your digital future, visit us at read more
