Talkin’ cheese for dairy month

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Celebrate dairy month and let’s talk cheese. Our family loves cheese and with our roots deep in the Ohio dairy business, I wouldn’t expect otherwise. According to the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, 11.1 billion pounds of cheese were produced in the United States in 2013. Cheddar held the top spot, with Mozzarella, American, Other Italian and Cream Cheese rounding out the other top five cheese varieties produced. Shocker — Wisconsin is the No. 1 producer of cheese. Ohio is the top state in Swiss cheese production.From 2007 to 2013, the licensed cheese plants in Ohio nearly doubled going from 21 to 41, with 22 of those being artisan cheese makers. Artisan cheese makers are able to use their creativity for different, great tasting varieties that excite all the foodies and eateries in the current “eat local” movement.Also interesting is the fact that as the consumption of milk is going down, cheese consumption is rising. In 2007, the average American ate 33.5 pounds of cheese, about 2/3 pound per week. That’s a lot of cheese! The Detwilers, probably make up for those of you below that average. My cheese purchasing has slowed down greatly as the kids have left the nest but cheese continues to be a must have in our fridge. Our kids’ love affair with cheese has continued even as they have moved across the country. They have repeatedly requested the Pine River cheese spread that the Ohio Guernsey Breeders Association distributes at Christmas. Last month, we went to visit our son Luke at this naval base in Florida. His only request was that we: “Fill up the back of the CRV with cheese” and bring it down. To answer your question, we did not fill up the back with cheese but we did take him six pounds of his beloved American and super hot pepper cheese. As much as we love cheese, most cheese is high in fat. Here are a few ways to cut the fat and calories of cheese.Use the real cheese! Fat-free is not a great choice. It won’t melt well and I won’t tell you what Paul says it tastes like. Real cheese melts and tastes better.Use half the amount of the regular cheese, but remember that it will reduce the protein, fat, calories and calcium for the recipe. Some cheese like Parmesan doesn’t have a low fat version so using less works.Use a reduced fat variety that still tastes good and melts well. The calcium and protein should stay around the same but the fat and calories should go down. Look for low fat cheeses with less than six grams of fat per ounce.Choose high flavor cheese. If choosing reduced fat choose sharp or extra sharp to enhance the flavor. If using high flavor cheese like Parmesan/Romano, smoked cheese, blue gorgonzola or pungent cheeses that don’t have a low fat alternative just use less.Stay away from blankets of cheese! Try using around 1.5 cups of shredded cheese to top a casserole.Choose a healthy lower fat partner to go with your cheese. Choose fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans that are low fat and filled with fiber. Apples, Pears and even strawberries go great with cheese.

Apple & Lenovo: A Tale of Two Companies

first_imgRelated Posts One company started in a garage. The other started in a guard shack in China with $25,000, according to The Economist.The first company took “Computer” out of its name on January 9, 2007. The other is now the leading seller of PCs in the world, by some measures at least.Who Owns The Computer Market?We all know that Apple is still a money machine – and the best in the world at it. But observers like Dan Frommer are now predicting that “Mac shipments… seem to have peaked for good.” That is a stinging comment.Lenovo, meanwhile, might be the best in the world at making computers – at least the desktop and laptop versions.So where will these two behemoths end up over the next few years? Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Opposing ApproachesTom Peters’ seminal book, In Search of Excellence, listed eight themes that defined the success of the corporations. One rule was “Stick to the knitting – stay with the business that you know.”Apple might have rewritten that rule. While there have been questions about the research behind Peters’ book, there are few about Apple’s success through creating and mastering new lines of business. The iPod, iPhone and iPad are powerful examples of how a company can define its own future by strking out in new directions.Still, it is very interesting to speculate on which company’s strategy will win in the end. The question draws me back to my days at Apple – when I watched the company set off in the directions that now define it.What might surprise some people is that the decisions that Apple made were often not conscious ones. They sometimes just happened in Apple’s unique corporate culture.I have described trying to manage at Apple as trying to herd a bunch of cats over a wall with a pitchfork. To complete the image, there was one person whose voice would send the all the cats over the wall instantly. That person, of course, was the late Steve Jobs.Different Paths To Different PlacesLet me try to shed a little light on why Apple and Lenovo are fundamentally different.The first difference is Lenovo’s strategy of making sure there is place to buy one of its computer very close to where the consumers are. Even in an emerging market like China, Lenovo’s goal is to be within 30 miles of every consumer.Apple, meanwhile, got to what I like to call its “metropolitan strategy” through a combination of missteps and vision.In the early ’90s, Apple wanted to strengthen its sales presence in the K-12 education market. Instead of hiring more people, it chose to strengthen the agent model by reducing the number of resellers who could be educations agents. As a manager in Apple’s Education division, I had to make some very difficult calls to small rural dealerships and tell them Apple was changing their contract so that they could no longer sell to education customers. For some of these small resellers, losing Apple’s education business was a death knell.That was a misstep.The vision part came in when Apple figured out that its now-weakened resellers would never do as good a job as Apple-branded stores could. That was the genesis of the fabulously successful Apple Stores.Not everything has changed. Apple has a history of disappointing its partners. Former and current Apple resellers have endless stories of Apple not letting them sell iPods to predatory specials at Apple Stores to chronic availability problems on hot products.For its part, Lenovo has exclusive resellers in China and exclusive territories in India. Both setups are very different than the retail situation in the United States – but they’ve played a big part in Lenovo’s growth and are now actually targets for Apple.The Business MarketAnother huge difference is Lenovo’s focus on corporate PC sales. Lenovo has doubled its success in that market, according to The Economist.At one point, I actually led Apple’s most successful enterprise sales team. We tripled Apple’s sales into arguably the most Windows-centric market in the world, the United States government. But our tiny team were fish swimming against the tide in a company rapidly transforming itself into a consumer powerhouse.Price MattersHere’s one final point. Apple has come to believe it cannot make anything worthy of the Apple brand at a low price point. Lenovo believes it can deliver quality and still serve customers looking for a good deal.If they are both right, that’s a big win for Lenovo. 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Tags:#Apple#China#Lenovo#manufacturing#PCs david sobottalast_img read more

Violence and Force Are Weakness

This eBook will help you Seize Your Sales Destiny, with or without a manager. Download Now I got the belt a few times when I was kid. A couple of the very old nuns at Catholic school used the wooden paddle to punish me for leaving the school grounds to get lunch in eighth grade. I am certain I deserved more than I ever received when it comes to corporal punishment.I got in a good number of fights when I was a kid, and I started a good many of those fights. I was never a good enough fighter to hurt anyone else, but I got hurt a number of times. I saw a lot of people get hurt, and it always made me feel awful, regardless of the circumstances.I have never raised my hands to children.* I never spanked them when they were little. I never wanted them to believe that violence was the right response when someone does something wrong (or something you don’t like). Because violence isn’t the right answer. Might doesn’t make right (thankfully).Violence is the choice taken by those without the will to control their own state, the resourcefulness to help others change, or the ability to persuade others.Physical violence is only one type of violence. Mental or psychological violence is equally–and sometimes more–damaging to individuals. Bullying is a form of violence, and so is threatening someone.Personal leadership requires that you are able to control your own state. If you are going to be effective through and with other people, you are going to have to be resourceful in finding ways to bridge differences. You find success through influence, through people choosing to follow you.Violence or force, in any form, is weakness not strength.* When my kids really acted up and wanted my attention, I would literally go running from the room, causing them to give chase to whine and cry. I kept running until they started laughing. If the whining or crying started up again, off I ran again. The physical act of running changed their state, and soon the crying stopped.last_img read more

Adityanath kicks off U.P. urban body poll campaign from Ayodhya

first_imgDays after releasing a separate manifesto, a Sankalp Patr, for the municipal polls, a first for any party in the state, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday kicked-off his poll campaign. His first stop was politically and symbolically significant, Ayodhya, which was elevated to the status of a municipal corporation after the BJP came to power in March.The Bharatiya Janata Party is going all out to campaign for the urban body polls in Uttar Pradesh in a bid to replicate the thumping win it registered in the Assembly elections eight months ago.Mr. Adityanath is expected to address more than three dozen rallies for the municipal polls, in a style similar to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s campaign strategy.Addressing a rally in Ayodhya, Mr. Adityanath accused the previous Samajwadi Party government of neglecting it and of trying to restrict and tarnish the “pehchaan” (identity) and grandeur of the town in the eyes of the world. Those who “discriminated with your identity”, can never be forgiven, he told voters in Ayodhya.Mocking the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party, Mr. Adityanath said the two parties were struck by “electric current” each time he visited Ayodhya.“Ayodhya is a symbol of faith for us. Ayodhya is the land of maryada purshottam Shri Ram…Ayodhya should get back its glory,” the Chief Minister said. Traditionally strong in urban areas, the BJP secured 10 of the 12 mayor posts in 2012.This time mayoral elections will be held for 16 posts, with the inclusion of four new seats including Mathura (Vrindavan) and Ayodhya, names emphasized by Mr. Adityanath in his speech.While mentioning that his government had already inaugurated development projects worth ₹ 137 crore in Ayodhya, Mr. Adityanath promised more schemes after the polls. He claimed credit for restoring grand Diwali celebrations in Ayodhya and said that his government’s priority was to make the town “shine” and bring a smile to the face of every person who visited it. “Ayodhya gave Diwali to the world but Diwali disappeared from Ayodhya. We restored it,” he said.While appealing for votes for the BJP candidates, Mr. Adityanath followed up on the promise made by his party in the manifesto and said that a gaushala would be built in all major cities cater to stray cattle.After Ayodhya, Mr. Adityanath is expected to hold campaign rallies in all major centres of UP, including Kanpur, Varanasi, Allahabad, Muzaffarnagar, Gorakhpur, Jhansi, Lucknow and Mathura, with more than two rallies per day on average.Polls would be held for over 650 posts, including 16 Mayors and 200 Nagar Palika Parishads, starting November 22 in three phases. Results will be declared on December 1.last_img read more

Chaiwala turns Rafalewala: Mamata Banerjee

first_imgWest Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday called the Rafale deal a “big scam” and said that she supported the views of the Congress party on this issue.One of the most vocal critics of the BJP-led government at the Centre, Ms. Banerjee has not spoken much about the Rafale deal. Asked about The Hindu’s revelations on the deal, the West Bengal Chief Minister said Mr. Modi is used to taking unilateral decisions and interfering in every issue and referred to demonetisation.“I was not sure how much money was involved but something has happened behind the curtains in the deal. Rafale is a big scam and I support Congress on this,” she said. The Trinamool Congress chairperson said Mr. Modi turns out to be a chaiwala (tea vendor) during the polls and becomes Rafale-wala after it. During his public meeting at Jalpaiguri Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said he had a deep bond with north Bengal which produces tea as he had once been a tea vendor. Row over circuit courtMs. Banerjee also took strong exception to the Mr Modi’s inaugurating the Circuit Bench of the Calcutta High Court at Jalpaiguri during the day.Speaking to journalists Ms Banerjee said neither the State government nor the High Court was informed of the inauguration. “The manpower for the Circuit Bench has to be provided by us. The High Court will send judges. It is like the groom and the bride are missing and the band party comes and plays a political tune,” the Chief Minister said.During his rally Mr. Modi had criticised the State government for the delay in opening up the Circuit Bench.last_img read more
