General Mills to Remove Artificial Flavors, Colors From All Cereals

first_imgGeneral Mills Cereals plans to have more than 90 percent of the portfolio free of artificial colors and flavors by the end of 2016. Trix and Reese’s Puffs will be among the first to change, while cereals that contain marshmallows, like Lucky Charms, will take longer.In January, 2014 General Mills turned to all non-GMO ingredients for it’s Cheerios brand. It has converted its entire line of Big G cereals so that whole grains are the first, most prominent, ingredient and, by 2011, the company had lowered sugar levels in all cereals advertised to kids so they contained 10 grams of sugar or less per serving.(READ more from the Washington Post)AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore “We’ve continued to listen to consumers who want to see more recognizable and familiar ingredients on the labels and challenged ourselves to remove barriers that prevent adults and children from enjoying our cereals.”To get the familiar red, yellow and orange colors in Trix cereal, for instance, the company will be using spice extracts–annatto and turmeric– and fruit and vegetable juice, from sources like beets and berries.

Instead of dyes like Red No. 40 and Yellow No. 6, the company will use natural sources to color its popular breakfast foods.This is good news because artificial dyes, which are essentially petroleum by-products, have been linked to attention problems and hyperactivity in children.

Nash triple does it for Lamar

first_imgLamar sports informationBEAUMONT — The late theatrics continued for the Lamar baseball team.This time it was Jake Nash’s three-run triple in the eighth inning that broke a 1-1 tie and gave the Cardinals a 4-1 win over UT Rio Grande Valley Friday night at Vincent-Beck Stadium in non-conference action.The Cardinals (8-3) entered the eighth inning in a 1-1 tie when UTRGV (3-7) pitcher Zach Martinez (0-1) took the mound and surrendered a leadoff single deep to shortstop Caden Rosholdt from Trey Silvers. Silvers took second base two batters later when Chaneng Varela drew a walk.Next up, Stijn van der Meer was hit in the back by a pitch, which gave Nash the opportunity to send home the go-ahead run with only one out. He drove a 1-1 count pitch deep to right center and raced all the way around to third base, but over-slid the bag in the approach and was called out, but not before he picked up his now-team leading 12th run batted in on the season.“Timely hitting wasn’t there for us until Nash got to the plate in the eighth,” said head coach Jim Gilligan. “He got a low and outside fastball and did exactly what he should’ve done. I was happy for him, it was super.”He was also the Cardinal who drove in the first run of the game in the third inning that gave LU a 1-0 advantage. Van der Meer reached on a leadoff single over the third baseman’s head and scored from second (after a wild pitch) on Nash’s single up the middle. It was the third time this campaign that van der Meer reached base and was driven in immediately on a base knock from Nash.His four RBI on Friday was the second time this season and second-straight game he drove four home.Cardinal starter Will Hibbs (2-0) had another great outing with just one run allowed on seven hits and one walk. The senior struck out four in eight innings and hurled 115 pitches. Six batters were able to get into scoring position, but he was able to manage the damage in nearly every inning.His lone run was in the fifth frame, and came on a double to left field from Rosholt that sent Austin Oakes to the plate. Oakes reached on a single that just scooted by second baseman Gavin Tristan. Hibbs worked two perfect innings and had two more where he only faced the minimum.“Will looked great tonight,” said Gilligan. “Obviously he did a good job of pitching out of jams and minimizing any damage.”Jimmy Johnson locked up his first career save at LU with a perfect inning that consisted of two strikeouts and a groundout. He took over in the ninth and threw 15 pitches.“Jimmy had unhittable stuff, and that is the second Friday game he has done that for us,” said Gilligan. “That is professional stuff right there. He was throwing hard and on the knees.”Nash was joined by Bryndan Arredondo with two hits in the contest. Arredondo had four trips while Nash had five. Van der Meer scored two runs in the game and Silvers and Varela scored the other two. Cutter McDowell and van der Meer were given free passes twice.Martinez took the loss on one-third inning with three runs allowed on one hit and one walk. Johnny Gonzalez started the contest for the Vaqueros and worked 4 2/3 frames and gave up one run on six hits and five walks. The UTRGV staff combined for seven free bases on walks to LU.The Cardinals will look to take the series at 2 p.m. today. The finale will be played at 1 p.m. on Sunday.last_img read more

Road games will determine Gophers’ NCAA Tournament fate

first_imgRoad games will determine Gophers’ NCAA Tournament fateMinnesota is 1-6 in true road games this season.Nur B. AdamCenter Daniel Oturu drives the ball through a defender at Williams Arena on Sunday, Jan. 26. The Gophers lost to the Michigan State Spartans 70-52. Nick JungheimJanuary 30, 2020Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintIn college basketball, earning a victory in another team’s arena is never easy. It’s a fact that Gophers head coach Richard Pitino is well aware of. His teams have gone 2-9 in true road games each of the past two seasons.Minnesota’s schedule in 2019-20 has presented them with an even more challenging slate featuring two true road games back-to-back in November before a gauntlet in the Big Ten. As a result, the Gophers began the year 0-6 in road games before breaking through with a 62-59 victory at Ohio State last week, a victory Pitino hopes propels the team down the stretch.“We were down 11 in the second half,” Pitino said. “We weren’t really playing great but we just found a way to fight through and defend when we needed to. I hope it inspires great confidence, but every game is so different.”Not only was the victory over Ohio State the first road win of the season for Minnesota, it was also the Gophers’ first victory in Columbus, Ohio since 2005. After a number of narrow defeats, including a double overtime loss at Purdue, players said it was a relief to finally get a win away from The Barn.“That was a much-needed win, a big win for us,” sophomore Gabe Kalscheur said.  “We haven’t won a road game all year besides that one. That was a good one just to get off our backs and hopefully there’s more to come.”This season, road victories have been rare not just for Minnesota, but for the rest of the Big Ten as well. Through Jan. 28, road teams are a combined 16-49 in conference games.“It’s really hard to win on the road and we learned that early on,” senior Michael Hurt said. “Even last year we didn’t have a whole lot of success on the road. … When it comes to Big Ten play, the crowds are bigger and it’s hard to win on the road.” One explanation for the struggles of road teams is increased parity in men’s college basketball. Upsets seem to occur on a nightly basis and there have been a record seven teams ranked AP No. 1 at some point already this season. With teams so evenly matched, home court can serve as even more of an advantage than usual.No conference has embodied this competitiveness better than the Big Ten. In his latest NCAA Tournament projections, Joe Lunardi of ESPN has 12 Big Ten teams, including Minnesota, making the field of 68 teams.“In this league, there’s great talent on each team,” Kalscheur said. “You are going to get each team’s best shot every single game.”At the halfway point of the Big Ten season, the Gophers have a 5-5 conference record, going 1-4 on the road but 4-1 at home, the only defeat at the hands of No. 14 Michigan State last Sunday.The Gophers have reason for optimism with the schedule moving forward. For one, road teams have show improvement lately, going 8-5 last week after starting conference play 7-42. Also, one of Minnesota’s remaining road games is against Northwestern, which, at 4-7, is the only Big Ten team more than one game below .500 at home this season.However, there are still plenty of challenges ahead for Minnesota. There are four opponents on the Gophers’ schedule currently ranked in the AP Top-25. Minnesota will play two of those teams on the road, beginning with a trip to take on No. 19 Illinois, who have not yet lost a Big Ten home game on Thursday, Jan. 30. “I think you can sit here and say … five more wins, you’re an NCAA Tournament team,” Pitino said. “I don’t want that. I want to win every game.”last_img read more

Love Culture: What It Takes to Create a Happy Workplace

first_img[email protected]:[email protected]: Your study focused on an interesting environment, which was firehouses and firemen. Why did you pick firemen? What you were looking at, and what you were trying to find?Nancy Rothbard: Mandy and I really wanted to go in and understand how the emotional culture of an organization could affect how people both interact in the workplace, but also what the effects on them physiologically might be. We were really interested in looking at emotional culture, in particular the culture of love, as well as another particular type of culture that often emerges in organizations, especially masculine organizations, which is called “culture of joviality.” A culture of joviality is sort of the fun, the joking, the pranks, kind of a macho, back slapping, teasing type of a culture. A culture of companionate love is really one where there is a sense of compassion, caring and affection for one another.Read the whole story: [email protected] More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more
