Perak to be without Pinto for Pahang’s match

first_imgMalaysia Cup Durakovic wants Perak to utilise home advantage to reach semis Ooi Kin Fai Last updated 2 years ago 07:30 23/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Perak head coach Mehmet Durakovic 1/3/2017 Vincent Phoon/CSN Malaysia Cup Perak v Pahang Pahang Perak Perak will miss influential Yashir Pinto as The Bos Gaurus seek to overturn a 1-3 defeat in the first leg against Pahang in the Malaysia Cup Perak were the only away side from the first leg of the Malaysia Cup quartefinals that didn’t win on the road and they face an uphill battle against Pahang in the return leg scheduled to be played on Sunday.Things are not helped that Mehmet Durakovic will also be missing the influential Yashir Pinto who has returned to Chile to recover from his injury, on top of the injury suffered by Hafiz Kamal who is out for the rest of the 2017 season.

Everyone knows Pahang are a good side who’s been together 3 – 4 years. They have good foreigners and local players. But we’re playing at home and we’ve got nothing to lose.” “We’ve got the crowd behind us. We’ll give our best shot, it’s not impossible. We’ll try and attack and to win this game because Perak haven’t been in the semi-final for so many years.”It’s very important to keep our concentration throughout. We played well in Kuantan and it was only 5 minutes of madness that they scored 3 goals. We played well the whole game. In the second half we killed them.”At the end of the day we lost 3-1 but their goal keeper got the man of the match. Shows we created a lot of chances. It’s very important that we’re fighting for 90 minutes,” Durakovic told Goal ahead of return fixture.In between these two legs, Perak also suffered a disappointing defeat to relegation battlers Melaka United, losing their second away game in a row with the same margin of 3-1. The Australian Durakovic however isn’t too perturbed by that result but laments the loss of two important players for the Pahang match.”I want to win every game but honestly we really really missed Hafiz Kamal. He’s out for whole year. Also Pinto, he’s gone to Chile last night [Friday] to have a look at his achilles. These are two players who have been in my starting XI for the whole year and now to miss them in the crucial part of the season is tough.” “I have other players who can play and hopefully they will do well. But you can’t buy experience, both have been my rock for the whole year,” added Durakovic.Among those that could feature in their stead are Shahrul Saad, Ahmad Khairil Anuar and Hadi Yahya – all of whom possess relative experience that could help Perak’s cause to reach their first Malaysia Cup semi-final since 2006.last_img read more

UK auto manufacturers join SMMT to launch National Apprenticeship Week

L-R: Bill Twigg (Semta); Jennifer Coupland (BIS/DfE); Konstanze Scharring (SMMT); Ian Eva (Jaguar Land Rover) A number of leading automotive manufacturers have joined forces with Semta and SMMT to showcase their pioneering apprenticeship initiatives as part of National Apprenticeship Week 2014.Exhibitors including Jaguar Land Rover, MINI, Nissan, Rolls-Royce, Toyota and Vauxhall took part in a landmark seminar held yesterday by Semta and SMMT. The seminar, which explored ongoing apprenticeship reforms such as the Trailblazers initiative, was also attended by a range of stakeholders and employers from the automotive industry.Konstanze Scharring, SMMT’s Director of Policy, hosted and chaired the seminar, which included contributions from Bill Twigg, Apprenticeship Director, Semta; Ian Eva, Apprentice Manager, Jaguar Land Rover; and Jennifer Coupland, Deputy Director, BIS/DfE Apprenticeships Unit.The event was attended by Matthew Hancock, Minister of State for Skills and Enterprise, who delivered an address in which he reaffirmed government’s commitment to apprenticeships.Announced last year, the Trailblazers scheme aims to reform apprenticeships, tailoring them more specifically to employers’ requirements and delivering a greater quality of learning for the apprentices themselves. The ‘Trailblazers’ tag refers to groups of companies from eight different sectors which have come together to form the voice of industry in the reforms.There are eight Trailblazers in all, representing a broad spectrum of UK industry; the automotive sector is joined by aerospace, digital, electro-technical, energy, financial services, food and drink, and life and industrial sciences.This week, apprentices and organisations alike will be sharing news and views on their initiatives using #NAW2014 on Twitter.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

APS showcases iPhone Personnel Tracker App at AIMEX 2011

first_imgAutomated Positioning Systems (APS), developer of machine management systems for the surface mining industry have demonstrated their new personnel tracking iPhone App at AIMEX in Sydney. The Personnel Tracker App utilises the in-built GPS of the iPhone or similar smart phone to show the position of the person carrying the phone on a mine site display in the mineAPS office suite of fleet management software. The app has been designed to run in the background of an iPhone, automatically log the position of the person and transfer this information to the onboard computers of mineAPS Mobile equipped machines and to the central mineAPS Office software.This allows machine operators to see where personnel are in relation to them and for managers to see the location of personnel on the mine site including a ‘tag board’ capability to show who is in a selected crib room or office. mineAPS Personnel Tracker combined with the mineAPS Office fleet system gives managers a better overall picture of where personnel are onsite and in relation to other mineAPS equipped machinery.Safety enhancements are an important application of this technology. This device will increase the overall awareness of peoples locations across a site improving overall visibility of people relative to mobile equipment and other hazards meaning that dangerous situations could be identified and mitigated prior to an issue occurring.“APS core business is about providing spatial and location based information to mine sites to improve productivity and utilisation. The extension of this from a machine based solution into a personnel based app is an important one due to the strong interaction between machines and personnel on a mine site. This app is a simple, smart, cost effective way of allowing mine managers to know the location of their personnel at all times without requiring large amounts of new hardware or wasting time on learning a new technology”, said Adam Forsyth, CEO of APS.APS is looking forward to continued growth in 2011 with a range of product enhancements scheduled for release that will continue to position the company as a global leader in Machine Guidance, Condition Monitoring, Fleet Management and Information Management services for the mining industry.Founded in 2002, APS develops, supplies and supports the mineAPSTM machine management systems for heavy mobile equipment used on surface mines including drills, dozers, excavators, shovels, wheel loaders, surface miners, auxiliary equipment, haul trucks and light vehicles.last_img read more

Legend about legend Dragan Skrbic Igor Vori is all time best lineplayer

That is a trend in handball. Line-players are static and play more for back-line. I am player of old Yugoslav school in which role of line-players were much more important. The best ever line-player in my opinion also coming from same Balkan school – Igor Vori. We played two years together in Barcelona. He was in defense, I played in attack, and I didn’t feel weel because he was better than me. Igor is that profile, 200cm tall, but with fantastic technic learned in Balkan school.

Britain owes the EU nearly €2 billion after ignoring a Chinese scam

first_imgBritain owes the EU nearly €2 billion after ignoring a Chinese scam The scheme also cost other EU countries — such as France, Germany, Spain and Italy — €3.2 billion. http://jrnl.ie/3276769 BRITAIN OWES THE European Union budget two billion euro after turning a blind eye to a major scam by Chinese importers, the EU’s fraud office says.“We recommended that the European Commission recovers the money from the United Kingdom,” the EU’s anti-fraud office OLAF said in an email to AFP, confirming a report by Politico.OLAF accuses Britain of ignoring rampant use of fake invoices and customs claims by Chinese importers which cost €1.99 billion in lost customs duties to the EU.The claim comes at a sensitive time in EU-Britain relations, just before London is to embark on Brexit negotiations in which the UK’s exit bill — estimated at 60 billion euros — has already sparked sharp exchanges.The UK government said it rejected the report and insisted Britain was tough on fraud.“We don’t recognise the figures and (the UK’s revenue authorities) are looking at it now,” a spokesman for British Prime Minister said.The matter was “entirely separate and unrelated matter to the Brexit negotiations,” he added.An investigation by OLAF showed that between 2013 and 2016, fraudsters evaded customs duties by using false invoices and incorrect customs value declarations on imports into the UK.OLAF said that “despite repeated efforts and in contrast to the actions taken by several other member states to fight against these fraudsters,” the scam in Britain continued to grow.The office said that the scheme also cost other EU countries — such as France, Germany, Spain and Italy — €3.2 billion in lost national value-added-tax revenue.The fraudsters involved “are in fact organised crime groups whose actions affect the entire EU; they operate in criminal networks active across the EU,” OLAF said.- © AFP 2017.Read: Three years ago MH370 went missing and still hasn’t been found A Brexit-themed float at a parade in Basel, Switzerland this week.

Income tax due in Greece

first_imgThe deadline for the submission of income tax statements for the fiscal year 2013 has finally expired. Nevertheless, the headache for the taxpayers continues, since they are being summoned to submit their statements for the real estate property status, also known as E9 statement. Who should file the E9 statement? A) Everyone who has had any changes in their ownerships within the calendar year 2012 B) Anyone who has not had any changes in their ownerships, but does own agricultural plots (outside the zoning plan) How do I submit the E9 statement? The E9 statement can only be submitted via the internet application of the Ministry of Economics by visiting the website www.gsis.gr What will I need to submit the E9 statement? Apart from knowing your username and password (klidarithmos), you need to access your account at www.gsis.gr. It would also be useful to keep a copy of your Title Deed handy, as well as previous E9 statements, in order to verify or to correct any previous mistakes that might have been made to your property status What is the deadline for the submission of E9 statement? According to the latest newsletter (20/09/2013) of the Ministry of Economics, any changes concerning buildings and plots (Table 1, E9 statement) must be made by the 27/09/2013. Any changes concerning agricultural plots (Table 2 , E9 statement) must be made by the 14/10/2013 Furthermore, it is worth noting that this is the third prolongation of the deadline for the submission of E9 statements given by the Ministry of Economics and due to the complexity of the application nobody can say with absolute certainty that it will be the last. Of course all the above submissions can be effected through a limited Power of Attorney to an experienced Greek lawyer or tax accountant, without the individual having to travel to Greece. *John Tripidakis is a Greek lawyer and Nicholas Ptochis is a Greek tax accountant.

Chevy Volts official mileage 93 mpg on electric

first_img Citation: Chevy Volt’s official mileage: 93 mpg on electric (2010, November 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-11-chevy-volt-mileage-mpg-electric.html The Chevrolet Volt, manufactured by General Motors, is a plug-in hybrid that can run on electric, gasoline, or a combination of the two. The 16-kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery will operate the car for an estimated range of 35 miles, after which the car will switch to gasoline mode. The battery re-charge time is around four hours on 240 V.A gallon equivalent is the amount of electrical energy equivalent to the energy contained in one gallon of gasoline. The Nissan Leaf, which does not run on gasoline at all, is rated at 99 miles per gallon equivalent. In electric-only mode the Volt requires 36 kilowatt hours per 100 miles, while for the Nissan Leaf the equivalent figure is 34 kilowatt hours per 100 miles. © 2010 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

Explore furthercenter_img The combined estimate of 60 mpg makes assumptions on the frequency of recharging and on how much of the time a typical driver will be running the car on electricity and how much on gasoline. In practice a driver who plugs in the car every night to recharge the battery and who usually travels on short trips may get much better mileage, and may use gasoline only occasionally. A driver who tends to drive longer distances or charges the battery only infrequently will use more gasoline and may get less than 60 mpg on average.General Motors expects to start selling the Chevy Volt next month. The four-seat sedan will cost around $41,000. (PhysOrg.com) — The Environment Protection Agency (EPA) official mileage ratings of the Chevrolet Volt have been released and show the car will be capable of 93 “miles per gallon equivalent” when running on electric for combined city/highway driving, and will have a range of 35 miles on the battery. Its total range is 379 miles. When running on gasoline, the car will achieve 37 miles per gallon (mpg), giving a total combined estimate of 60 mpg over the long term, which is 10 mpg better than Toyota’s Prius and puts the Volt at the top of the compact car category in fuel economy.

New TB drug inaccessible to many South Africans

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Doctors Without Borders (MSF), other treatment providers in South Africa and globally have found that the first new drugs in half a century to be developed for treating drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) are offering new hope to patients — but significant challenges remain to improve availability and affordability of these treatments.Current treatment regimens for DR-TB involve thousands of pills taken over two years, which can have devastating side effects and ultimately only work for 50% of people with multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB and 26% of people with extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB.Access to new drugs bedaquiline and delamanid along with ‘repurposed’ drugs — not specifically developed for TB but that have shown efficacy in treating TB — could be a significant step toward finding a shorter, more tolerable DR-TB regimen in the future.This is good news for South Africa, which has one of the highest burdens of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) in the world, with 30,000 new cases each year, over 18,000 people diagnosed and over 11,500 put on treatment in 2014. *Article supplied by Doctors Without Borders (MSF). Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more groundbreaking initiatives.center_img Only 3,000 patients worldwide have been treated with bedaquiline, and fewer than 200 with delamanid – only 2% of the 150,000 people around the world that could benefit.“MSF is treating some of the lucky few people in South Africa — and in fact the whole world – to receive access to strengthened treatment regimens including bedaquiline and delamanid,” said Dr. Jennifer Hughes of MSF in South Africa. “South Africa’s Department of Health has been a leader in accessing new DR-TB drugs, with over 1,750 patients receiving bedaquiline nationally since 2013.Ubuntu clinic (integrated TB/HIV) in Khayelitsha.Patients receiving bedaquiline in South Africa had 77% ‘culture conversion’ rates from TB-positive to negative, which is a promising sign that their treatment may ultimately be successful. Additional information from South Africa showed similar safety and efficacy even when bedaquiline was given together with antiretroviral therapy (ART) to TB/HIV co-infected people, another sign that this drug has the potential to transform DR-TB treatment in coming years.Delamanid, however, is not yet as widely available in South Africa.“TB is curable, yet it is now the infectious disease that kills the most people in the world,” said Dr. Grania Brigden, TB Advisor for the MSF Access Campaign. “We desperately need treatment that is easier for people to tolerate, that cures more people, and that is more available and affordable, otherwise it’s just deadly business as usual.”last_img read more

The Eizo RadiForce GX530 display.Recent advances in diagnostic-grade flat panel displays include automated and remote quality assurance (QA), elimination of the bezel between two screens by using a single large screen for workstations and an increasing use of color monitors.Quality Assurance on Medical DisplaysRegular calibration is extremely important for medical imaging displays to guarantee the best image quality and to ensure that light levels are the same throughout the screen matrix and over time as the monitor ages. Liquid crystal display (LCD) screens can last more than a decade, but the light source for backlit screens may start to degrade much sooner. As bulbs age, they may become dimmer and their shades of gray or color becomes unbalanced. For this reason, medical monitors are generally only covered under warranty for five years. These displays usually include a built-in monitoring system to ensure their diagnostic quality.In order for a display to be DICOM-calibrated, a photometer is held to the screen manually or the display may have a built-in front sensor attached to the bezel. Regular, manual QA checks of the display may disrupt radiologists when conducting tests at each workstation. The QA process can also be time-consuming for large enterprises with many monitors spread over several departments and even several facilities, so some vendors have developed automated and remote calibration systems.“A lot of the monitors are able to be calibrated with a built-in sensor, so you no longer need someone to come and physically calibrate each individual monitor at every single workstation,” said Joey Sanchez, Eizo marketing specialist.Double Black Imaging displays can conduct calibration through the Web-enabled network and it can be done in the middle of the night, so radiologists’ workflow is not interrupted.  “The radiologist’s workflow is never interrupted,” said Tara McCall, sales and marketing manager at Double Black Imaging. “They receive email alerts if something is not conforming and can be proactive in maintaining that.”There is a trend toward centralized calibration services being offered by the display manufacturer. At RSNA 2011, Double Black Imaging launched its Virtuoso service, where the vendor’s calibration experts will manage their clients’ networks for them. Barco’s Nio and Coronis families of monitors offer automatic calibration. The QA software reports automatically to a central server. Barco’s Mammo Tomosynthesis 5MP display uses I-Guard, a third-generation system that automatically does calibration in the background, QA tests, sends the information to a central server and generates compliance reports.Eliminating the BezelThe standard setup for a radiology review station is two monitors side-by-side for the evaluation of current and prior exams. Vendors are now offering larger, single displays that eliminate the need for two monitors and the bezel separating the two screens. This allows for better viewing without the distraction of the bezel when going between the images. Examples include Barco’s amalgamation of two 3 MP displays into an single 6 MP display for mammography and Eizo’s new 8 MP surgical monitor that will replace six separate 1-2 MP displays.Color vs. MonochromeUntil a few years ago, nearly all radiologic and nuclear image viewing was conducted using monochrome displays. There were two reasons: First, color displays lacked the brightness needed for radiographic interpretation. Second, the pixel values in grayscale can match the representation of measured values from imaging modalities, such as X-ray beam attenuation, Hounsfield units, echogenicity, magnetic resonance signal intensity or radioactivity. Since none of these are measures of visible light, they have no particular color.1Color screens also divide each pixel into three subpixels for red, green and blue to create colors, which reduces the brightness of each pixel. On LCDs, the backlight is what determines the screen brightness. Brighter light sources could be used, but produce too much heat, which would adversely affect the internal components of the display. The introduction of “cold” backlights in seven years ago has enabled bight color medical grade displays.While color monitors might be preferred because of their versatility, QA to maintain calibration of monochrome displays is much easier. Uniformity of colors can be an issue over time, but vendors are constantly working to improve QA on their color displays.Consumer vs. Medical Grade MonitorsConsumer-grade monitors have traditionally lacked adequate luminance, so they were not bright enough to adequately display enough shades of gray for diagnostic interpretation. However, the quality of off-the-shelf consumer displays has greatly improved with brighter screens and increased matrix sizes. But medical displays still offer several advantages in maintaining high luminance more precisely over the lifetime of the display, built-in photometers and quality assurance monitoring.Future MonitorsThe next generation of medical monitors will likely use organic light-emitting diode (OLED) technology. These displays are not backlit like conventional LCD screens, which means black is true black, not a backlit black.  This enables a higher contrast ratio than an LCD.

What States Offer the Most Ideal Lifestyle

first_img August 15, 2016 475 Views Share Median Housing Price 2016-08-15 Seth Welborn What States Offer the Most Ideal Lifestyle?center_img in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News If families wanted to find the places with the most affordable housing, safest neighborhoods, most affordable child care, best job security, highest income, and the best education opportunities, where would they go?Analysis from GoBankingRates of all 50 states plus the District of Columbia ranked each one according to 12 factors in order to determine where families can enjoy the best lifestyle. The factors spanned the categories of jobs and income (median household income and state’s unemployment rate), housing (median home listing price and state property tax), lifestyle (state sales tax, child care cost, cost of groceries, and school district grades), healthcare (average cost of healthcare premium and how much the employer contributes to employee health insurance), and safety (violent crime and property crime rates).The study found that New Hampshire topped the list of best places to live due to its low crime rates, highly rated schools, low child care costs, and zero sales tax. North Dakota, Delaware, Montana, and Wyoming rounded out the top five.Source: GOBankingRatesWashington, D.C., ranked last on the list because of its high unemployment rate (fourth in the nation), high median home price ($549,900, second in the nation), high child care costs ($40,000 a year, more than double the national average), high cost of groceries, and high crime rate.“There really is no ‘one size fits all’ formula for those trying to decide the best place to raise their families today,” said Kristen Bonner, lead researcher on the GOBankingRates study. “Our study examined some of the main concerns families have during this process and found that it is possible to live in states where the cost of living won’t drain your bank account and your children can still attend good schools in a safe environment.”The two states with the lowest median home price (about $140,000), Ohio and Indiana, ranked 24th and 28th on the list, respectively. Maryland had the highest median household income at approximately $74,000 per year (more than $20,000 higher than the national average) but ranked only 25th on the list because of its higher-than-average crime rate, health insurance premium, and median home price.Click here to view the entire list to see where each state ranks.last_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter There is excellent air

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterThere is excellent air connection between Australia and Mauritius via Singapore Airlines, and, once on the Indian Ocean island, plenty of luxury resorts await.  I went to check out two of the newest, both members of the just-renamed The Lux Collective.LUX* Grand Gaube, which unveiled its Kelly Hoppen look in December 2017, is Mauritius’ taupe-and-white luxury resort, with hints of sea blue and, in one instance, a riot of colour.  This is the magnet for British lords and anyone who feels in tune with the look of the Hoppen design, the softness of fabrics, the emotion of the sunrise.  The sensitivity started the moment I arrived. A welcome line-up, led by GM Brice Lunot, from Brittany, was all the more striking because nearly all the 546 people who make this 15-hectare resort work wear the simple white cotton robes that are so suitable in this climate.Gardeners, not surprisingly, are not in white: they have a non-stop job as they are supervised, sometimes in person, by London floral-darling, Stephen Woodhams. Although all 92 rooms are predominantly, as I have said, taupe and white, there are lots of mirrors and wicker; in some areas every rainbow hue is boldly shown.French artist Camille Walala has turned the lunch restaurant below the pool into a Frank Stella look; street artist Jace has covered the static Citroen that serves as a bar in the adults-only peninsula with graffiti. There are so many different areas in the entire complex it is not surprising the hotel was 95% full my night, with average stay eight nights.One peninsula is adult-only. It has a high-up treehouse bar and a burger joint, where the crab, or smoked chicken, are favourites of the seven cooked-to-order options. Throughout the resort you find a really great line up of F&B experiences, devised by Patrick John of EPJ and LUX* food specialist Walter Lanfranchi. The all-day Palm Court has numerous live-theatre kitchens.I dined with friends in the colourful mostly-red INTI, a South American restaurant with an equally colourful Argentinian chef (the hotel’s top chef, by the way, was formerly at La Mamounia in Marrakech). The next day we lunched in the blue and white Bodrum, seemingly cantilevered over the blue sea. The chef who prepared the tara and subsequent Iskander kebabs, naturally, was Turkish.The day’s activities that Sunday included biking, coconut sculpting, a mixology class, beach volleyball and tai chi. There are four tennis courts and paddle tennis, as well as a first-class LUX* Me Spa, with Murdock barbering and Essie nails (the fact there are 13 treatment rooms shows the popularity of this spa).On my way back it was very tempting to stop off for at least one scoop of ice-cream from a beachside cart that sensibly allows you to pay by swiping your room key card, thus no excuse for not having any money. Some would also dally to try one of the hundred-plus gins from a nearby gin bar. LUX* is a really clever concept. Subtly, you pay for things here and there, though you note, more obviously, the fact that telephone calls worldwide are, thanks to VOIP, free in the London-red telephone kiosks that are a LUX* feature.Having already been so impressed by LUX* Grand Gaube, I did have to wonder how this Mauritian luxury resort could possibly have a new sibling that was different. Well, guided by Lux Collective’s visionary CEO Paul Jones, SALT of Palmar, which opened 1 November 2018, is as different from LUX* as black is to white – or, in this case, whereas LUX* properties are known for empathetic taupe and white Kelly Hoppen interiors, SALT is as colourful as can be. And SALT has what is claimed to be this Indian Ocean island’s first rooftop bar.Arriving at the 59-room hotel, previously the Palmaraie, you look past the pool to the sea. Around you, the three-floor C-shaped building is a riot of blocks of colour, which extends to stairwells (this was an old building, with no elevator, so you get a good workout going up to your room). For SALT, Paul Jones deliberately turned to an artist rather than an interior designer. Be different, he told Camille Walala, and you can see the colourful result.Paul Jones worked on the SALT DNA with Katie Brinsmead-Stockham, a gig-economy Londoner. SALT is eco, saving the world through the locale, which includes your immediate neighbours round the pool or in the casual restaurant (no buffets, to reduce waste, and as much food as possible will come from a designated artisanal farmer).You are not expected to spend time in your bedroom here. There is no mini-bar, no television, but you have a few carefully chosen books, a Carpe Diem bed with 500-thread sheets, and the softest possible pale lemon, washable robe, apparently made from coffee grounds. You have a yoga mat, but there is also a good, if bijou, gym (24/7, which is not as ubiquitous as it should be on this island). I was also really impressed by the five-room Equilibrium Spa, which has a salt room, its walls and floor covered with rough Himalayan salt, the entire space gradually, in turn, going through all the colours of the rainbow.As part of the community involvement that is integral to the SALT culture, Skill Swap is one of its unique, and commendably trendy, elements.  Teachers, for instance, can be put in contact with local schools by one of the hotel’s concierges.  The hotel’s 140 staff also volunteer, say by giving blood, or working with local charities, and they are reimbursed with time off. (All staff, by the way, have at least 168 hours of training, in work time, every year).Yes, SALT is a really thoughtful new-wave luxury hotel: the restaurant even has a 100% vegan raw section, with zucchini pasta and cauliflower biryani. It also has, as one of its morning options, what it calls a ‘big brekkie board’, which consists of eggs with baked beans, smoked bacon, avocado, potatoes, sausages and tomato, plus barbecue sauce and sourdough toast. The idea of no buffets, says hotel GM Raj Reedoy, is to cut waste.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more
