CHOCOLATE fans have criticized Quality Street’s new eco-friendly packaging, saying the recyclable packaging makes it look like “fakes”.

The famous shiny leaf has been a Christmas staple for 86 years, and Britons have shared their outrage at the brand’s lackluster revamp.

Nestlé sparked fury from some fans last week when it announced it was replacing the original packaging to make chocolates more environmentally friendly.

Treats in the selection box will now be coated with a vegetable wax instead of the regular shiny foil.

The move will save nearly two billion packages a year from ending up in landfills, but it has nonetheless angered traditionalists.

Fans took to Twitter to share their horror at losing the treat’s famous shiny wrapper, calling the look “cheap” and threatening to move on to the brand’s competitors instead.

Tributes to the

One person commented, “Why would they change them! This is ridiculous. It’s going to have to be roses for me from now on.”

Another said: “I’m sorry but they look cheap and depressing. They smack of wartime austerity.

“With food, presentation is important, and the shine is gone from Quality Street.”

A third wrote: “Quality Street – flavors may come and go, jars may shrink, but one thing has remained constant since 1936 – shiny, glittery, rustling wrappers, made from aluminum foil and colored cellophane … Never again !

The move was also criticized by chocolate historian Alex Hutchinson, who was Rowntree Mackintosh’s official archivist, as he told the Mirror: “It’s a huge deal. And it’s a bit sad.

“Because when Harold Mackintosh initially launched Quality Street, he specifically designed it to be an explosion of colors, different flavors, different shapes. Packaging was absolutely essential.

After seeing reviews of their eco-friendly decision, the brand replied to an angry customer: “Sorry to hear you don’t like our new Pat paper packaging.

“The material we use for our cellulose packaging is not recyclable.

“In line with our commitment to make all of our packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025, we had to find an alternative that was recyclable.”

However, some fans saw the funny side, with one quip: “You’re all missing the real benefit of making them quieter to open… A blessing for sneaky snafflers.”

Around 1.7 billion Quality Street ‘gems’ are gobbled up in Britain each year, which equates to a whopping average of 63 per household.

While classic treats still end up with their iconic colors, the new vegetable wax has taken away their famous luster.

Nestlé said that unlike cellulose, the new packaging breaks down easily and is accepted for household recycling.

The recycling-friendly packaging is expected to hit shelves by Christmas, and the company said it did not take the decision lightly.

Cheryl Allen, Head of Sustainability at Nestlé, said: “Quality Street is a brand that people hold dear.

“We know that opening the lid and seeing ‘the jewels’, as we call them, is really important.

“We think we’ve done a really good job with the redesign, and we’re confident people will respond positively.”

Along with the change to Quality Streets, the brand has revealed that another of its signature chocolates will undergo an eco-redesign – KitKat.

Recyclable packaging will be rolled out this month, with its entire range being changed by 2024.

On its website, the company states: “Packaging helps protect food and beverages, ensure product quality and safety, communicate nutritional information and prevent food waste.

“However, these essential requirements must not come at the expense of the planet.

“That’s why we are continually developing more sustainable packaging and are committed to reducing packaging waste.”

THE PSOE party of Albox has announced that it wants to create a program for childhood and adolescence.

This would be based on the promotion of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and on the organization of a local system for safeguarding the rights of the child.

In this way, Albox would eventually be recognized by the UN as a child-friendly municipality, which would mean new opportunities for children and adolescents in the city.

“Local children, both in the city center and in outlying neighborhoods, need a dynamic city that understands and responds to their needs, keeping them in mind when building the Albox of the future” , says the PSOE statement.

The party then suggested creating both a committee for childhood and adolescence and a centre, with the cooperation of schools, parents’ associations and the children themselves.

“A city with children and teenagers is a city of the future,” the statement said.

“We believe that this future is only possible by listening to their needs and letting them participate in the decisions that affect their daily lives.”

Giant Eagle and Walmart Rank No. 1 on Bee-Friendly Scorecard https://frendlypresents.com/giant-eagle-and-walmart-rank-no-1-on-bee-friendly-scorecard/ Fri, 30 Sep 2022 19:51:46 +0000 https://frendlypresents.com/giant-eagle-and-walmart-rank-no-1-on-bee-friendly-scorecard/ Giant Eagle is the only one of 25 retailers to have a measurable pesticide reduction goal in place.

Giant Eagle is the only one of 25 retailers to have a measurable pesticide reduction goal in place. As part of its pollinator health policy — which it first established in 2020 — the Pennsylvania-based grocery chain is demanding that producers of agricultural products cease all use of nitroguanidine-based neonicotinoids by 2025 and prohibits their replacement with other chemicals toxic to pollinators.

Giant Eagle further requires that by 2025, all of its agricultural product suppliers use Integrated Pest Management (IPM), an environmentally responsible pest management approach that uses chemical interventions only as a last resort. A supplier’s implementation of IPM should be verified by approved third-party certification or by submitting an IPM plan to Giant Eagle for review by an external entity to ensure it meets a set strict criteria.

A key part of Giant Eagle’s policy is its recognition of organic farming as beneficial to pollinators. As the retailer shares on its website, “Giant Eagle recognizes the positive impact that the expansion of the organic food industry is having in limiting and eliminating the use of all artificial pesticides. The company is committed to providing customers with certified organic products at affordable prices in relevant product categories throughout our store and online and continues to grow the number and variety of organic items in our Giant Eagle family of brands a priority.

Walmart, which had the second-highest score in the FOE 2022 rankings, has a pollinator health policy requiring all of its fresh produce and flower suppliers to have IPM plans by 2025 (as verified by an approved list of third-party certificates).

Walmart’s policy also “encourages product suppliers to phase out pollinator-toxic pesticides — nitroguanidine neonicotinoids and chlorpyrifos — and avoid replacing them with a list of other chemicals of concern, and to report annually. pesticide application and biodiversity management,” says Kendra Klein, associate director. of science at FOE and author of the 2022 Bee-Friendly Retailer Scorecard report. “In addition, the policy sets goals around the creation and restoration of pollinator habitat.”

FOE assessed retailers in four areas related to the use of pesticides in their supply chains:

  • Pollinator health policy—the presence (or absence) of a pollinator health policy and the strength of that policy.
  • Implementation – actions that support pollinator health through pesticide reduction, including offering organic produce and other organic items.
  • Transparency and accountability – public availability of pesticide reduction efforts, inclusion of pesticide reduction efforts in key performance indicators, and consumer education related to pollinator health.
  • Collaboration—willingness to communicate with FOE.

“We looked at whether these companies were setting targets to reduce the use of key toxic pesticides, what they were doing to increase organic offerings, and whether they were taking steps to help non-organic farmers adopt less toxic approaches. “, says Klein. . “We also examined whether they educate consumers about these issues and whether they use their power to advocate for public policies that shift government support from pesticide-intensive agriculture to organic farming systems and ecological.”

Friends of the Earth began its pollinator-retailer efforts in 2017 to “spur a race to the top” among major U.S. grocery stores in pollinator health.

“Forty percent of pollinating insects, like bees and butterflies, are at risk of extinction, and American beekeepers continue to experience record bee colony losses,” Klein says. “A growing body of research shows that the use of agricultural pesticides is a major threat to pollinator populations. …Without pollinators, grocery store shelves would lack a wide assortment of fruits and vegetables, nuts, beans, and delicious favorites like chocolate and coffee. The choices these powerful corporations make could determine whether bees and butterflies, along with many other beneficial insects, will exist in the future.

When FOE began its work as a retailer-pollinator, Whole Foods was the only company of the 25 to have a policy mentioning pollinator health. However, today 12 of the retailers have pollinator health policies, thanks in large part to FOE scorecards and advocacy efforts. (Two of those retailers — Southeastern Grocers and CVS — launched pollinator health policies this year.)

One of the main ways FOE suggests retailers can help protect pollinators is to increase their organic offerings. Specifically, FOE is asking retailers to expand organic items to 15% of total sales by 2025. So far, two companies have achieved this: Whole Foods (30%) and Trader Joe’s (20%).

“Research shows that organic farming can help reverse pollinator decline,” says Klein. “Organic farms support up to 50% more pollinator species than pesticide-intensive farms and help other beneficial insects thrive.”

“In the hypercompetitive food retail market, strong policies to expand organic offerings and phase out toxic pesticides are key ways for retailers to stand out from the pack,” Klein says. “According to a recent YouGov poll commissioned by Friends of the Earth, 83% of Americans think it’s important to remove pollinator-harming pesticides from agriculture, and 74% think grocery stores should support efforts. protection of pollinators, such as bees and butterflies Eighty-one percent want their food to be free of pesticide residues and 67% believe it is important that the grocery store they shop in sells organic food.

“Spectators should be considerate of each other during post-match celebrations and whether your team wins or loses, there is no excuse for violence, bullying or anti-social behavior.

“To everyone celebrating across the state, I would like to remind you to drink responsibly, know your limits, and keep an eye out for your friends,” Assistant Commissioner Smith said.

Additionally, officers from the North West Metropolitan Area will carry out a high visibility operation – comprising both general duty and specialist policing – as additional crowds are expected at many venues and locations in Parramatta and Penrith.

New updates are added at the bottom of this story…….

The original story (published September 20, 2022) follows:

What could be more exciting than seeing your favorite Disney and Pixar characters come to life in an adventure game that lets players embark on a variety of intriguing quests.

However, we have witnessed many bugs and issues with the game lately. For example, the “With Great Power” quest recently stopped progressing for many players.

Disney Dreamlight Valley ‘A Friendly Exchange’ Isn’t Progressing

And now many players (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, seven, 8) reported an issue where they can’t complete the quest “A Friendly Exchange” because it doesn’t save progress.

Source

I’m in the “quest for a friendly exchange” and to the point where I just have to listen to wall-e talking to Ariel, but they just don’t interact at all. I tried different areas and turned the game off and on again. I don’t know how to fix this problem
Source

I can’t complete the Wall-E quest “A Friendly Exchange”. I gave all the items to Wall-E, but he’s not talking to Ariel.
Source

The quest asks players to listen to Wall-E and Ariel as they exchange gifts. But the conversation between these characters never starts, making it impossible to complete the quest.

Even when the characters are face to face, they don’t really engage in conversation. The problem also persists among other characters like Anna and Kristoff, Ariel and Eric, etc.

Players unable to pick up a light bulb

Aside from Ariel and Wall-E who don’t speak, Disney Dreamlight Valley players (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, seven, 8) are also facing an issue where they are unable to collect or pick up the bulb.

Disney-Dreamlight-Valley-players fail to pick up the bulb
Source

I can’t pick up the light bulb in wall-e’s house for his quest with Ariel. It spawns in the middle of its house and there’s no interact button when I approach it. Has anyone else had this problem?
Source

So I’m trying to complete Wall-e level 10 friendship quest. I found everything but it won’t let me pick up the light bulb. my inventory is not full and the button to pick it up does not activate.
Source

In the “A Friendly Trade” quest, players must collect items to trade Ariel. But many are unable to acquire the light bulb found in Wall-E’s house.

Disney Dreamlight Valley players have managed to collect other items like the bowling pin and the toy train, but have no idea when it comes to getting the light bulb.

Official recognition

So far, the devs have only acknowledged the issue where players cannot pick up a light bulb in the quest “A Friendly Exchange”.

Potential Workarounds

Luckily, we have found workarounds that may possibly help fix both issues. Players experiencing issues with Ariel and Wall-E not conversing can try talking to them separately for a potential fix.

i had to make sure the wall wasn’t hanging out with me then i talked to him and ariel separately and for some reason it finally got them to talk to each other lol
Source

Affected players can also try waiting for the two characters to start talking to each other.

I found it best to wait. Move on. Go collect resources or something. Go out with another boyfriend. Eventually you will see the characters on the map next to each other not moving. That’s when they’re ready to talk. Just walking close to them, but not too close, should trigger the bubbles above their heads.
Source

Last but not least, simply quit and rejoin the game also seems to solve the problem.

For those who can’t interact with the light bulb, start positioning their characters at random distances and wait for the “E Pick Up” option to flash.

I walked around a few times and noticed “E Pick up” flashing for a second in a certain spot. If you stand directly in front you can’t pick it up, but if you stand a little distance away you should be able to, if I remember correctly I had my back to the wall.

We hope that the issue where the “A Friendly Exchange” quest does not progress in Disney Dreamlight Valley will be resolved soon.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for further developments and updating the article as something noteworthy arises.

Update 1 (September 23, 2022)

6:35 p.m. (IST): Here is a potential workaround suggested by one of the affected people that might help you resolve this issue.

Update: I gave it a few days and tried some workarounds which ultimately didn’t work. I then noticed that Wall-e always went to the same part of the beach, but Ariel never swam there, I had a house right next to where he was, so I moved, then Ariel came and spoke! (Source)

Update 2 (September 26, 2022)

3:54 p.m. (IST): Here is another workaround suggested by one of the affected people that might help you fix the problem with the “A Friendly Exchange” quest.

I moved Wall-E’s house to the beach next to Ariel’s house and they had a conversation almost immediately and I completed the A Friendly Exchange quest.😃 (Source)

Update 3 (September 27, 2022)

6:19 p.m. (IST): A Redditor has suggested a workaround that might help fix the issue with the “A Friendly Exchange” quest.

Workaround: This can be similar to the quest where you have to clean Donald’s boat and you can’t pick up a certain item. I got around it by dropping an object I didn’t care about on the floor and strangely enough I was finally able to pick up the bugged object. It might be worth a try for that too. (Source)

Update 4 (September 28, 2022)

12:57 p.m. (IST): Disney Dreamlight Valley has revealed details of its upcoming fix which includes bug fixes. However, it doesn’t mention any fixes for the “A Friendly Exchange” quest.

By PETER SMITH – Associated Press

When her teenage daughter came out as a lesbian several years ago, one of the first things Caroline Joyce did was ask Google, “Can you be gay and still be a Christian?”

The family attended a conservative Southern Baptist church in Greensboro, North Carolina, an area that considered same-sex activity a sin.

“We were taught one thing, but we knew our daughter loved Jesus,” Joyce said. “She was very open with us during her struggle to understand what was going on with her.”

And Caroline and her husband, Chuck, started their own fight.

Their daughter and a younger brother found a gay-friendly church, College Park Baptist Church in Greensboro. They “started coming with our blessing because we knew that if she continued to attend our church, she would be totally turned away from God,” Caroline Joyce said.

The College Park Church found itself in the news last week when the executive committee of the Southern Baptist Convention voted to delete it from his lists due to his “open affirmation, endorsement, and endorsement of homosexual behavior”. This action came 23 years after the congregation itself voted to leave the SBC, but according to the executive committee, it had remained on its rolls until now.

But the very thing that has caused disapproval among Southern Baptists is what drew the Joyces themselves to College Park. The parents eventually followed their children’s path and joined the congregation. They even moved from the suburbs to the city of Greensboro to be closer to the College Park Church, its activities, and the friends they made there.

“It really makes a difference when you hear from the pulpit and hear in the hallway that God loves everyone,” Caroline Joyce said. She said their daughter eventually grew up to be a minister, just like his wife.

Rev. Michael Usey, the senior pastor, said Southern Baptist leaders correctly identified the church’s ethos.

“It’s good when people reject you because they clearly understand who you are,” he said. “The irony is that they exclude us so as not to exclude people.”

The vote of the executive committee did not take congregation leaders completely by surprise.

They had received registered letters from Southern Baptist officials over the past few months explaining that the church was still on their rolls and asking for more information, Usey said.

“At first they were kind of demanding that we clarify our position on homosexuality,” Usey said. The North Carolina Baptist State Convention, the state branch of Southern Baptists, sent similar requests, he said.

Usey said church leaders decided not to respond and let the SBC expel him if that was the decision.

“I don’t really want to get into that,” Usey said. “There are hungry people in Greensboro. That’s what God calls us to do, to do something for the children who are half a mile from our building and who are hungry.

Southern Baptist churches are self-governing, so the convention cannot tell them what to do or believe. But the convention considers churches affiliated – in “friendly cooperation” – if they share its beliefs and support its ministries.

The convention “had no record of a request from the church (College Park) to disaffiliate from the SBC,” said a statement Thursday from Linda Cooper, who chairs the SBC’s credentials committee. “This church has been brought to the attention of the committee. The committee asked the church about its desire to disaffiliate and received no response.

The Credentials Committee then recommended that the Executive Committee sever ties with the congregation, which it did.

The convention has said in recent years that a small number of congregations are not in friendly cooperation if they are LGBTQ-affirming. The denomination’s statement of belief, the Baptist Faith and Message, says Christians should oppose “all forms of sexual immorality, including…homosexuality.” The denomination has also severed ties with a small number of churches for failing to adequately address sexual abuse, and last week it also severed with a church in New Jersey for “alleged discriminatory behavior”.

The College Park Baptist Church voted in 1999 to leave the SBC, shortly after the annual convention meeting endorsed a doctrinal statement that a wife should ‘graciously submit’ to her husband’s authority .

The congregation’s website clearly states that College Park is an “LGBTQIA-Affirming Baptist Church” that “fully welcomes and affirms all people regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, class, sexual orientation , gender identity or any other human category”.

Usey said the church, with around 400 members, has a progressive heritage. Founded by Southern Baptists in 1906, it supported the civil rights sit-in at Greensboro Woolworth in 1960, began ordaining women in the 1980s and became openly LGBTQ about two decades ago, he said. -he declares.

While church members were surprised the SBC didn’t remove the church from its list years ago, the recent action “gives us the opportunity to say we’re not that kind Baptists,” he said.

Sunil Chhetri’s India prepare for a tough test against Vietnam in a football friendly match https://frendlypresents.com/sunil-chhetris-india-prepare-for-a-tough-test-against-vietnam-in-a-football-friendly-match/ Mon, 26 Sep 2022 15:44:37 +0000 https://frendlypresents.com/sunil-chhetris-india-prepare-for-a-tough-test-against-vietnam-in-a-football-friendly-match/ In 2010, a few events were happening simultaneously in Vietnamese football.

In 2010, a few events were happening simultaneously in Vietnamese football. They had just been beaten 3-1 by an Indian team which had Sunil Chhetri as a striker.

Their football association went through elections and candidates offered attractive cash prizes to players for winning regional tournaments. Vietnam’s then president Nguyen Trong Hy suggested the country should start naturalizing players from different parts of the world – an argument that continues to be made for Indian football today, albeit for players of Indian origin.

Cut to 12 years later. Vietnam have qualified for the quarter-finals of the AFC Asian Cup. The senior team is perfectly placed to qualify for the 2026 World Cup where Asian countries will have 8.5 quota places (eight direct qualifiers and one team in the intercontinental qualifiers). Their youth teams are thriving with rapid growth fueled by private investment in football academies at youth level. No special cash prizes for competitive wins, just an emphasis on investing in grassroots football.

India in 2022 continue to look to their talismanic striker who scored a hat-trick against Vietnam 12 years ago, quite comfortably out of World Cup scenarios and barely qualifying for the Asian Cup. Vietnam’s growth, and its absence in India for the past 12 years, should be on full display on Tuesday when the two teams meet at Thống Nhất Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City in an international friendly match.

The friendly match is part of the Hung Thinh Friendly Football Tournament – featuring 104th-ranked India, Singapore (159) and Vietnam (97). In this case, the FIFA ranking is not indicative of the true footballing merit of these teams. While Vietnam contested the third round of World Cup qualifiers against countries like Japan, Australia and Saudi Arabia, India, just 13 places behind them in the world rankings, drew 1 -1 against Singapore in their first friendly on Saturday.

Lots to work on

Singapore were far too organized in their passing and positioning to be this low in the FIFA rankings and their performance against India was telling that the difference of over 50 ranking positions between the two countries was not a reflection true to reality displayed during the 90-minute standoff.

It was in stark contrast to India, who were playing their first match of the tournament and missing a few key players. The performance – other than a few individual moments of moving the ball forward, particularly by Ashique Kuruniyan – really didn’t have much to tell.

India will have their first-choice centre-back duo of Sandesh Jhingan and Chinglesana Singh for their game against Vietnam. But they are still missing a few key players – the main one being Apuia Ralte, a midfielder who can sit in the heart of the pitch and pirouette for days around opposing players. In response to India’s question about progression from the pitch to midfield, Ralte is currently in Belgium for a training camp with Lommel SK – an affiliate club of the City Football Group. Chhetri, 38, is in a vein of rich form and will once again lead the Indian attack.

India head coach Igor Stimac has made it clear that Vietnam are going to be a tougher opponent for his side and they should concentrate and execute much better for a successful game. The Croatian was recently granted a contract extension until the 2023 AFC Asian Cup.

“It will be a very different match against a much stronger opponent, so our approach will also change accordingly,” Stimac told the AlFF website. “We need to be more focused, especially on vertical football and quick transitions. At the same time, we also have to stay focused on our defence. They pose a real threat from long-range shots and their crosses, and we have to be able to deal with that.
