first_imgFor decades, Ben & Jerry have been making delicious ice cream, paying homage to their favorite musicians, and educating the masses on important societal issues in the process.  The Vermont-based ice cream magnates have never been shy about their appreciation for the jams, with flavors like “Cherry Garcia,” “Phish Food,” “One Love,” and more serving as  a tip of the had to hippie-friendly legends like The Grateful Dead, Phish, Bob Marley and more. Now, the company has announced the debut of a new “limited batch” flavor called “One Sweet World,” an apparent nod to the Dave Matthews Band song of the same name, to benefit those striving for racial and economic equality in our country. The limited-time flavor consists of coffee caramel ice creams with fudge chunks & swirls of marshmallow & salted caramel.Grab Some Ganja And A Pint Of “One Love,” Ben & Jerry’s Newest Flavor, In Memory Of Bob MarleyAccording to the flavor’s page on the Ben & Jerry’s site, “From LGBTQ rights and marriage equality, to Occupy Wall Street, Ben & Jerry’s has used the power of its business to motivate its fans and promote policies that advance the cause of social justice. This commitment is as strong today as it has ever been. As part of that commitment, Ben & Jerry’s will donate a portion of the sales of One Sweet World to support those working at the intersection of economic and racial justice.”Ben & Jerry’s Announces “Freezer Reprise” Ice Cream To Honor Phish’s Baker’s DozenThe campaign is part of their “Dig Deeper” initiative, described by the company as “a journey to better understand the issue of race in our country, to acknowledge the existence of systemic racism and the implicit biases that all of us carry—and to join hands and move forward together.”HeadCount And Ben & Jerry’s #VoteLocal Baker’s Dozen Photo Booth: By The NumbersAlthough Dave Matthews Band’s name isn’t directly tied to this batch, the connection between Ben & Jerry’s “One Sweet World” is relatively blatant. Matthews has an existing relationship with the ice cream makers (he has his own official flavors “Dave Matthews’ Magic Brownies” and “One Sweet Whirled”). The allusion to the DMB song also resonates with the band’s own recent humanitarian efforts. In the wake of the racially-motivated violence in their hometown of Charlottesville, VA this summer, Matthews reunited his full band for the first time in over a year along with Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake, Chris Stapleton, Ariana Grande, The Roots, Brittany Howard, Cage The Elephant, and more at UVA Scott Stadium for the “Concert For Charlottesville, a benefit show meant to serve as a call for unity in a time of hate and violence.You can read about the limited Ben & Jerry’s “One Sweet World” Ice Cream flavor here.

Mel slams penalty decision

September 21, 2020 | tdpedrwj | No Comments

first_imgWest Brom head coach Pepe Mel labelled the decision to award a second-half penalty against his side as “laughable” as the Baggies succumbed to a 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace. Press Association Marouane Chamakh was played through on goal and the on-rushing Ben Foster slid in to tackle the Morocco international, with Foy deeming the England goalkeeper had committed a foul before pointing to the spot. He decided against showing a card to Foster, who was then sent the wrong way by Chamakh, but Mel was left fuming at the awarding of the spot-kick as his side went on to lose and fall into the Barclays Premier League bottom three. “The penalty decision was laughable,” he said. “If it was a penalty then it would have been a red card. I think the penalty decision really did prevent us from getting anything from the game. “In the previous piece of play Speroni made a really great save and that would have made it 2-2 so the penalty decision really did kill us off. “If it was a penalty then we wouldn’t be able to say anything about it but it really was an error from the referee.” Mel was also unhappy about his side’s defending in the first half and felt, if they had started well, they could have left south London with only their second away win of the campaign. “I’m extremely angry,” he said. The Eagles had led 2-0 at half-time courtesy of goals from debutants Tom Ince and Joe Ledley before West Brom’s own new man Thievy Bifouma pulled a goal back at the start of the second half. The visitors then pushed on for an equaliser and saw James Morrison and Scott Sinclair bring the best out of Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni before referee Chris Foy made the game’s biggest decision. “In the first half we really did gift it to Crystal Palace, the first goal was from a second ball and the second goal came from a corner. “I really would like to know (why we started so slowly) but if we had played like we did in the second half we would have three more points right now.” Palace boss Tony Pulis, who saw his side move to 13th in the table with the win, had a different view of the contentious penalty decision. “Looking back it looks as though the referee has got it right,” said the Welshman. “Ben has caught him with his foot I think, Marouane touches it away and then Ben comes through and I think it is his momentum that catches Chamakh.” Pulis handed debuts to Ledley, Ince and Scott Dann and was pleased with their contributions – challenging them to add greater depth to his squad. “I think the biggest thing about Tom if you look at what he did today was actually his work and the way he did all the unglamorous stuff that all good players do,” Pulis added. “We are pleased for him, Dann and Ledley, the big thing for the team is that the players who have been at the football club have done exceptionally well. “Tom took his goal with aplomb. We have been moaning a little bit that we haven’t scored enough from set-plays and Joe’s header was first-class. “The players we brought in they have to work as hard and have that little bit more quality but I’m pleased for the group, it is the group who have taken us where we are at the moment and it will be the group that decides whether we are good enough to stay in the Premier League or not.” last_img read more

first_imgDeputy Charlie McConalogue has called on the HSE to ensure that repair works on the health centre in Quigley’s Point are carried out as soon as possible.The centre was damaged in the flash flooding experienced across the Inishowen Peninsula last August.Deputy McConalogue commented, “The damage caused to the health centre last summer has resulted in the cancellation of the satellite GP service, which serves local residents. “This is causing a major upheaval for older people and people who are incapacitated as they find it incredibly difficult to access GP services. This is also increasing pressure on GP services in Moville.”The HSE has confirmed to me that they expect the centre to be back up and running by April 2018.“This seems an exceptionally long time to wait for repair works to be carried out, given that the flooding occurred in August. I am calling on the HSE to expedite the works so that a full service can be up and running in the next few weeks.“I will continue to follow this up on the behalf of the local community with a view to having works here progressed without delay.” Quigley’s Point Health Centre must be progressed – McConalogue was last modified: January 8th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:deputy charlie mcconaloguedonegalhealth centrequigleys pointlast_img read more
