Essex flour miller ADM sets new world record

first_imgEssex-based ADM Milling appears to have smashed the world record for the fastest time to turn wheat into 13 loaves of bread. A seven-strong ‘field to loaf’ team successfully completed the challenge in 12 minutes 42.32 seconds – beating the previous record of 16 minutes and 30.83 seconds.The result is now pending authentication from the Guinness World Records.British Baker’s sales manager Sam White, who witnessed the event held in a field at Codhamhall in Brentwood, Essex this week, said: “The team only had two attempts at the record. The first one failed as they did not mill enough flour to produce 13 loaves, which had to be edible, so everyone was on tenterhooks the second time around.“We were delighted when they beat the record. A huge cheer went up.”The event, attended by 50 baking industry representatives, was held in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.ADM partnered with the London hospital’s children’s charity earlier this year and aims to raise£100,000 to fund an enclosed isolation recovery bay in the hospital’s new post-anaesthetic care unit, due to open in 2017.VIDEO LINK: British Baker’s Sam ‘combines’ business with pleasure at ADM’s world record field-to-loaf challengelast_img read more

To improve bicycle safety, crash reports need to capture more data

first_imgHarvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health researchers are calling upon police in all states to improve their reporting of crashes involving vehicles and bicycles, according to a new study. Currently, details on crashes are handwritten by police on paper and there are few bicycle-relevant codes. The researchers are calling for police to use electronic tablets that would include more options to gather bicycle-specific data, such as drawings of the scene and additional codes that could indicate, for example, if the bicyclist was riding inside a painted bike lane and ran into a driver’s open car door. This detailed information about each vehicle/bicycle crash could be automatically uploaded into spreadsheets for later analysis. Analysis, especially when combined with big data, could then guide the building of safer bicycle environments, encouraging more people to cycle, the authors said.The study was published online April 2, 2015 in Injury Prevention.“Self-driving cars have been invented and apps tell cyclists of approaching vehicles but the vehicle/bicycle crash details are still hand written and drawn on the police crash report template, making crash analysis labor-intensive. To equal other technological advancements and improve the safety of bicyclists, multiple bicycle-crash-scene codes should be created for immediate data entry,” said co-author Anne Lusk, research scientist in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard Chan.
