Dining halls cater to students’ special diets

first_imgFor sophomore Katie Pryor, the worst thing about having celiac disease on campus is being locked into eating at the dining halls. “If I miss a meal at the dining hall,” she said, “I miss a meal.” Pryor was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease freshman year. She cannot have any gluten — a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, oats and hydrolyzed oils. “For the first three weeks, I had fruit and vegetables for every meal because I didn’t know what to eat,” Pryor said. Jocie Antonelli, manager of nutrition and safety for Food Services, said her department uses many mediums, including a website, signs and e-mails to reach out to students with dietary needs. “We want to keep students safe,” she said. Measures to keep students safe range from specially prepared meals and shopping for specialty foods to rearranging cereals and salad bars for nut and egg allergies. “Eating is a part of the college experience,” she said. “We want all the students to be able to participate.” Antonelli works one-on-one with students to teach them what is available in the dining halls for different food sensitivities and allergies. “We want students to have as close of an experience as other students have,” she said. Antonelli introduced Pryor to Chrissy Andrews, a 2010 graduate who founded Gluten-Free ND (GFND). “She took me out to lunch three days in a row and went through the whole dining hall menu and what I could eat at the Huddle and other places,” Pryor, now secretary of GFND, said. GFND meets weekly in Walsh Hall to discuss problems and solutions to eating on campus. The group sends e-mails to Antonelli about any concerns or ideas the group has and also sends e-mails to the Huddle with lists of gluten-free products to stock. “We are trying to get more fresh food on campus,” Pryor said. She said on-campus eateries are getting better at adapting to gluten-free foods, little by little. Other special food needs on campus include lactose intolerance and religious requirements. Amanda Bremer, a senior and resident assistant (RA) in McGlinn Hall, has learned to live with lactose intolerance, a sensitivity to milk and milk products. “At first I just couldn’t have ice cream. Then it was sour cream, then yogurt, then cheese,” she said. “This was slow, through the first half of the semester freshman year.” But Bremer said she didn’t turn to help from Food Services. “I made a list of what I couldn’t have through trial and error,” she said. Some times of the year are harder than others, Bremer said. “During Lent [is the hardest time],” she said. “To substitute protein, the dining hall puts cheese on everything. By the end you don’t have many choices.” Bremer said problems also arise with club events, including pizza or ice cream, or when the Huddle discontinued selling soy ice cream. Nevertheless, she has found creative ways to enjoy places on campus. “I don’t want to make a big deal out of it because there are worse allergies and intolerances,” she said. “[On-campus eateries] do have enough variety that I can enjoy myself.”last_img read more

Australian pension fund Cbus targets carbon-heavy coal and gas investments

first_imgAustralian pension fund Cbus targets carbon-heavy coal and gas investments FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Guardian:Construction and mining industry super fund Cbus says it will slash emissions from its investments by 45% within the next 10 years, putting carbon-intensive companies on notice that they will need to demonstrate how they will cut greenhouse gas emissions in order to stay within the fund’s $54bn portfolio. Cbus has also expanded an existing pledge to hit the Paris agreement target of zero emissions by 2050 in its property and infrastructure investments to cover its entire portfolio.Its chief investment officer, Kristian Fok, stopped short of ruling out any investment in new thermal coalmining but said any such business would face an extremely high hurdle to attract Cbus’s money.“I’m not going to rule out anything, but the hurdles are going to be so high for these things, because the way we would see it is that it would have to be highly competitive against the alternatives,” he said. “Basically, we now have a [carbon] budget in our portfolio, so it would have to be more compelling than something else.”Institutional investors such as pension and superannuation funds have been ratcheting up the pressure on big emitters, such as mining companies, to slash their carbon output.In April, Norway’s US$1.1tn Government Pension Fund Global, one of the world’s biggest investors, put BHP on notice that it needed to get out of thermal coal or the fund would dump its stock in the company. At the same time, it announced it had sold its stake in Australian energy company AGL, which owns coal-fired power stations including the carbon-intensive Liddell plant in New South Wales.Asked if Cbus would be willing to take shares in a BHP coal spin-off, Fok said the new framework wouldn’t stop the fund from doing so. “But what it does make us look very carefully at is what price we’re paying for it,” he said. “In relation to thermal coal, we would look at it in relation to the global economy. But it’s quite clear the lifecycle of thermal coal is shorter than the next fossil fuel, which is gas – but the lifecycle of gas is shorter than what it used to be as well.”[Ben Butler]More: Construction and mining industry super fund puts carbon-intensive companies on noticelast_img read more

Brazilian Armed Forces Strive to Fight Against the Coronavirus in Latin America

first_imgBy Andréa Barretto / Diálogo March 26, 2020 On March 18, 2020, Brazilian Army (EB, in Portuguese) service members deployed near the Brazil-Venezuela border to stop the entry of Venezuelans into Brazil.The soldiers followed the orders of the Brazilian government to partially close the border to curb the spread of the coronavirus in Brazil. The order will remain in place until at least April 2. Only goods will be allowed into the country.On March 19, the Brazilian government also decided to block land borders with eight neighboring countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, French Guiana, Paraguay, Peru, and Suriname. The Federal Police is tasked to enforce the decision, and also counts on EB’s support. The movement restriction applies to the population, not to the transport of goods.Air and maritime borders are also restricted. The entry of foreigners coming from the European Union and China, among other countries, is temporarily prohibited through airports. Cruise boarding and disembarking are also interrupted.The decision regarding tourist cruise ships was made after a passenger tested positive for coronavirus on a ship flying the Bahamian flag that was docked at the port of Recife, in Pernambuco. The ship was detained at the port, and about 600 passengers were kept in isolation on March 12.On March 20, the first group of tourists disembarked with help from the Brazilian Navy’s Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Defense. The tourists got off the ship gradually, based on a required screening process. The passengers were taken to the airport to fly back to their countries of origin.Operation COVID-19Border control is only one of the Brazilian Armed Forces’ measures for Operation COVID-19. This operation, launched on March 19, outlines the use of military forces in support of Brazilian health and public security agencies to curb the spread of the virus that has caused the pandemic.Military institutions were required to make their personnel, operations, and logistics resources available. Representatives from the three forces coordinate and plan activities from a Joint Operations Center set up in Brasília.“This is a war. The enemy is invisible, fierce, and determined in its actions. In times of war, the Brazilian people can count on the Armed Forces,” said Brazilian Minister of Defense EB General Fernando Azevedo.FrontlineOn February 26, Brazil had the first confirmed case of coronavirus in Latin America. Since then, most countries in the region have taken rigorous measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 in this part of the continent. Border closure was only one of the initial measures.Currently, a majority of the cases are concentrated in Brazil, followed by Ecuador and Chile. Ecuador declared a state of emergency on March 16, with a nighttime curfew for all citizens. During the day, people can leave the house to buy food, medication, and other basic needs. Driving is also limited, and both land and air transportation are banned between the country’s provinces.Chile declared a state of emergency for 90 days, which enabled the government, with help from the Armed Forces, to ban gatherings in public spaces, control the distribution of basic supplies, establish quarantine and a curfew, and limit the transit of people through cities and the country as a whole.last_img read more
