Wooden plates pose a risk of food poisoning, council says as it fines restaurant £50000 – Telegraph.co.uk

It was fined £50,000, and told to pay £670 costs and a £120 victim surcharge.

When they returned two months later after serving improvement notices, it was found that whilst food handling had improved, the wooden plates were still being used.

The cleaning of the premises was poor and sanitising chemicals were also not being used in accordance with manufacturer instructions.

Birmingham City Council brought the case against Ibrahim’s Grill and Steak House because it kept using the boards to serve food.

The council said on Twitter: “Wooden plates could pose a risk of food poisoning to anyone eating from them.”

Wooden “plates” used by restaurants pose a food poisoning risk to people eating from them, a council has warned as it issued a £50,000 fine to a steakhouse where 14 people fell ill.

Mark Croxford, Head of Environmental Health at the council, said “It is completely unacceptable for businesses to put the health of people eating at their restaurants at risk.

Former Bear Kevin Butler getting a kick out of returning to Georgia at 55 to graduate, help coach – Chicago Tribune

Butler took five academic courses and was the oldest student in each classroom. One professor remembered Butler as the classmate who kicked a 60-yard field goal with 11 seconds left to upset No. 2 Clemson — in 1984. The guy whose kicking career included making clutch field goals in full stadiums never had noticed everybody watching him quite like this.

“My mom kept me back because I couldn’t read,” Butler said. “It was horrific at the time, hiding from fourth-graders in the hall. But I learned how to deal with it.”

“He was a mature student and great example,” said Robert Miles, the director of life skills for the Georgia athletic department and a starting defensive end on the Bulldogs’ last national champions in 1980. “Kevin took this challenge very seriously.”

As Butler has worked with Blankenship and the rest of the Bulldogs kickers and punters this week, he has recounted the 1983 Sugar Bowl in which No. 2 Penn State beat No. 1 Georgia.

Nobody in Chicago influenced Butler more than coach Mike Ditka, whom the designated student assistant thinks of every time he gets candid with a Georgia punter or kicker.

Everton analysis – Blues make unwanted history and why not signing Cenk Tosun quickly was massive – Liverpool Echo

Inside a modern 18-yard box, the gentlest of embraces is sufficient to see strong, beautifully balanced athletes collapse to the floor like puppets with their strings cut.

Everton announced the signing of a long-awaited new striker – at half-time of the Anfield derby.

But sometimes referees do, too … Jeff Winter and his 12 yellow cards, one red and a couple of penalty kicks, Graham Poll and his early final whistle.

The Merseyside derby is famously the fixture to have yielded the most red cards in Premier League history.

But there is cause for optimism on the horizon, once the hurt of this Anfield experience eases.

The Everton team of 1997/98 which mustered a measly 41 goals in 38 matches, fielded the less than luminary Claus Thomsen, Mitch Ward and John Spencer – and escaped relegation by goal difference, is widely considered one of the most wretched in Everton’s recent history.

But this current crop of Blues has just made history.

The Super Blue Blood Moon will rise on Jan. 31 – NOLA.com

The show gets better as you move west, but will be visible to early-risers in New Orleans. Weather pending, of course.

A supermoon occurs when the full moon is at its closest point of its orbit to Earth, which is also called the perigee. This makes the moon appear 14 to 30 percent bigger and brighter than a regular full moon, according to NASA.

It even has its own saying, “Once in a blue moon.”

The lunar eclipse will take place in the middle of the night. Unlike solar eclipses, which can only be in certain place of the Earth, lunar eclipses can be seen from anywhere.

Blue Moon is used to describe the second full moon when there are two in a month. Even more stunning is the fact this month’s Blue Moon will also be a Super Moon, when the moon appears larger and brighter than normal.

According to space.com observers in the Central Time Zone will be able to see the moon turn red starting at around 4:51 a.m. and will turn blood red as it enters totality before it sets minutes later at 7:03 a.m. just before the sun rises.

Five Reasons I Like Fortnite BR Way Better Than Battlegrounds – Kotaku

Bonus reason: You can enjoy all of what I just mentioned….for free. Battlegrounds, meanwhile, costs $29.99.

Did I mention that you can craft yourself a bush disguise? I love moments when you spend ages hiding in a bush, only to realize the bush next to you has been an enemy player this entire time. Or times when you’re getting chased down, you turn a corner, and transform into a bush to confuse your assailant—where did you go?? Then, of course, you shotgun them in the face.

Tell me if you’ve ever seen this: there are only ten people or so left in your Fortnite: Battle…

Battlegrounds has more mechanical complexity than Fortnite, but Fortnite’s additions are inherently more fun. Even when used strategically, crafting is silly in the best way. Getting shot at? Time to put down a wall in a panic. Well, now there’s a makeshift house keeping me safe from an unknown danger. What should I do? How long can I survive here before they tear my walls down?

Last year, Bluehole expressed concern over how similar Fortnite felt to Battlegrounds. At the time, the worry felt overly cautious: Battle Royale is the hot new thing, and lots of developers are going to take inspiration from it. While I still think Fortnite is enough of its own thing, I’m starting to understand why Bluehole was sweating in the first place.

I’ve been playing Fornite for around 40 hours now, and not once have I encountered a problem. If I have a bad time, it’s never technical issues getting in the way—I’m probably just sucking. Battlegrounds, though? I swear, half the time I play something goes wrong. Constant crashes. Rubber banding. Inexplicable hiccups. I know that there’s a fantastic game hiding underneath all these issues, but why should I have to suffer through them when I have an option that works the way it’s supposed to?
