first_imgPork Farms has become the first major retail brand to display the British Lion egg products mark on-pack.The move follows the decision by the Nottingham-based manufacturer to use 100% British Lion egg products across its Scotch egg and snack egg range. The logo has been displayed on shell eggs for a number of years, but the food industry has seen increased demand from consumers for the use of British Lion egg products in manufacturing. “Pork Farms is delighted to be the first manufacturer to lead the field in sourcing and using 100% British eggs and we’re proud our products will feature the British Lion Quality logo,” commented Andy Napthine, head of marketing for Pork Farms“We’re also looking to attract new consumers with a significant packaging redesign to improve food values and the introduction of new variants; such as snack eggs with bacon, to broaden the appeal of the category,” he added.last_img read more

Press release: Focus on brisk walking, not just 10,000 steps, say health experts

first_img The additional health benefits that can be achieved by walking at a brisk pace for periods of 10 minutes or more – as opposed to totting up a certain number of steps throughout the day – are undeniable. I’d advise anyone of any age and activity level to start to fit in at least one 10 minute brisk walk a day as a simple way to get more active, especially those who may be taking medication for a long term health condition – you will receive even more benefits from walking briskly for 10 minutes or more a day. nearly nine in 10 (87%) say they walk more than 10 minutes per day, however, this drops to just over half (54%) who say they walk briskly for this amount of time Professor Sir Muir Gray, Clinical Adviser for the Active 10 app and One You campaign, said: The current physical inactivity crisis also has a societal impact. In adults, physical inactivity contributes to1 in 6 deaths in the UK[5] and costs the NHS over £0.5 billion per year.[6]Professor Paul Cosford, Medical Director at PHE, said: Dr Zoe Williams, GP and RCGP Clinical Champion for Physical Activity and Lifestyle, said: ONS Mid year Population estimates, mid-2016 Public Health England, Active Lives, 2016 to 2017 10 minutes brisk walking each day in mid-life for health benefits and towards achieving physical activity recommendations. YouGov surveyed 3007 adults in England aged 40 to 60. Fieldwork was undertaken online between 10 and 16 May 2018. The figures have been weighted and are representative of all English adults (aged 40 to 60). Lee I-M, and others. (2012) Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy. The Lancet 380: 219 to 229. PHE, Physical inactivity: economic costs to NHS clinical commissioning groups, 2016. Managing all the pressures of everyday life can mean that exercise takes a back seat, but building a brisk walk into your daily routine is a simple way to get more active. half of these adults (50%) think more than 240 minutes of exercise per week is required to see general health benefits, nearly double the recommended guidance of at least 150 minutes – and 1 in 7 (15%) think that more than 420 minutes per week is required (an hour per day) many adults struggle to fit in exercise. Not having enough time (31%) was the main reason cited, followed by not feeling motivated (27%) and being too tired (25%)center_img GPs want their patients to be healthy and enjoy life, and there are simple ways in which we can all improve our health. I often encourage my patients to take up more daily physical activity, which can start with just a 10 minute brisk walk – it would be great to see more people doing this across the country. Moving more is an important step forward to improving the health of the nation and looking after our NHS, which is often overburdened by lifestyle related illness. Small, often simple, lifestyle changes can have a really positive impact on our health and wellbeing, so anything that encourages patients to live better, and move more is a good thing. There has been a substantial rise in the number of patients who have developed multiple, long-term conditions in recent years, and many of these, including type 2 diabetes and heart disease, are linked to not being active enough. With an estimated 3 million middle-aged adults physically inactive across the country,[1],[2] Public Health England (PHE) and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) are encouraging adults to incorporate brisk walking into their days as a way to improve their general health and wellbeing.As part of the push to get adults doing more moderate intensity physical activity each day, health experts are encouraging people to increase the intensity of their walking, rather than just focus on the distance or number of steps.Moderate intensity physical activity means getting the heart rate up and breathing faster. Just 10 minutes of brisk walking a day is an easy way for adults to introduce more moderate intensity physical activity into their day and reduce their risk of early death by up to 15%.[3]To help adults do this, PHE’s ‘Active 10’ app has been created and it is the only app of its kind that combines intensity and time, rather than just distance.Taking a 10 minute brisk walk each day can help build up towards the UK Chief Medical Officers’ (CMO) recommendation of at least 150 minutes per week of moderate to vigorous physical activity. This has been linked to health benefits including a lowered risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some cancers.A new survey by PHE looking at people’s perceptions of physical activity found that:[4] While GPs and our teams will always encourage patients to make lifestyle changes that could potentially benefit their long-term health and wellbeing, the responsibility cannot solely lie with healthcare professionals, and patients must also play their part. The RCGP is really pleased to have endorsed the Active 10 app, which empowers patients to make basic lifestyle changes around diet and exercise, such as taking a brisk walk for 10 minutes a day and suggests ways for patients to easily incorporate these into their lives. Already 600,000 people have downloaded the ‘Active 10’ app. In a single month, approximately 2 million ‘Active 10s’ (10-minute brisk walks) were completed by Active 10 users.‘Active 10’ is supported by the RCGP and was developed by PHE in collaboration with The University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University and the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine.Join the 600,000 people who have downloaded ‘Active 10’ and make the first step towards a healthier you. Search ‘Active 10’ to download the app for free.Background Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, Chair of the Royal College of GPs, said: The Active 10 app gives you a clear picture of the intensity of your walk. Taking a brisk 10 minute walk each day will get your heart pumping, improve your mood and lower the risk of serious health issues like type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. Public Health England exists to protect and improve the nation’s health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities.

Digital Transformation at SXSW 2017

first_imgA Preview of #DellExperience at SXSW 2017It’s that time of year again when hundreds of thousands descend on Austin from around the globe for South by Southwest (#SXSW)*, the annual festival that brings together the most diverse, collaborative and inventive people from across music, film and, of course, technology. SXSW introduces us to the next “big idea” and is a birthplace for major innovation. It was from this event that we first heard about companies and concepts like Twitter, Foursquare and GroupMe.This year is particularly exciting as it will be the first SXSW for our new company Dell Technologies. To celebrate with our customers, partners and friends, we will host “THE EXPERIENCE by Dell Technologies,” an interactive pop-up on March 10-14, showcasing some of our latest technology, live entertainment and a program of events and discussions representative of our family of brands (Dell, Dell EMC, RSA, and Pivotal,).Dell Technologies provides the essential infrastructure for organizations to build their digital future, transform IT and protect information. The #DellExperience at SXSW will offer sessions and demos reinforcing how Dell Technologies is creating innovative technology solutions that drive human progress, by showcasing technology solutions in virtual reality, security, open source, entrepreneurship, creativity and much more. A few examples include:How VR could change the way we do everything? VR is an industry disruptor not just for creators and gamers in media and entertainment, but also for people in engineering, manufacturing, healthcare and more. VR will ultimately transform the way we work and is expected to be a big theme again at SXSW. Dell Technologies, along with its partners and customers, will illustrate how the technology has progressed, new areas and applications, as well as the future.You’re secure but is your workplace? The more technology advances, the more chances of security breaches affecting the workspace. But what if there was a way to remedy this and proactively stop breaches before they happen? Dell Technologies will explore this topic, focusing specifically on how businesses can be protected through data and behavior analytics in the modern world.How do we make the world a better place? This year, Dell Social Good Advocate and Actor, Adrian Grenier will host a brunch with other change makers who are collaborating and innovating to create positive impacts for our communities and planet. Grenier has played an instrumental role in our recently announced Oceans Plastics initiative, helping to reach our goal of 100 percent sustainable packaging by 2020 and encouraging other brands across different industries to follow Dell’s lead.What it means to build an open source culture? Building a culture around open source for collaboration is transforming how we innovate. However, to truly leverage open source, an organization needs to develop a culture that not only understands its value but also understands the importance of the community and contributing back to that community. Dell Technologies will explore the challenges and rewards of building an open source-oriented and community-friendly organization.In addition, we will also kick off Dell Technologies’ first ad campaign that centers on the need for human progression and our dedication to our customers. We hope to show the world how the impossible can become reality through digital transformation. We invite customers to get an exclusive look at the campaign as well as experience solutions that will help them digitally transform at Customer Appreciation night.And of course, we will have our award-winning products that dominated at CES on display and a number of interactive new demos. Attendees to #DellExperience can try out the VJ Mix Booth, where guests can control and interact with various screens, projections and lighting in a digitally-transformed space. We will also have a sound studio to test out the innovative new sound built into the XPS 27 and Precision 27 All-in-Ones, along with, VR Games ROM Extraction and the brand new John Wick.Not to mention additional demos, the brand new Alienware Gaming trailer, #DestinationDell RV, 8K displays, Dell Canvas, and a virtual experience of the new Jaguar Land Rover electric car, the I-Pace!If you are in Austin, attending SXSW, be sure to stop by “THE EXPERIENCE by Dell Technologies” at The Sunset Room in downtown for the ultimate SXSW experience.
