Combining Indian food with a traditional bakery offer is proving a hit with customers of Hurst Bakery & Provisions, based in Berkshire. Owned by brothers Jitu and Duras Miah, it produces bread, rolls, cakes, morning goods and sandwiches – but Indian food is also on the menu. The brothers bought the 78-year-old shop as a going concern in 2006 and wanted to offer something that other companies didn’t. The pair’s restaurant-owning background means they can serve up curries, naan bread and samosas to customers, which Jitu says is proving a success. Spicy food is also on the company’s new catering menu – launched in February – and already bringing in orders for work events and parties of up to 200 people at a time. “It’s an unusual bakery,” said Jitu, “but we’ve also tried to create a homely atmosphere.” He added that the pair had launched the catering side of the business after getting lots of enquiries from customers. “There’s definitely demand for the service and I’m confident that it will take off,” said Jitu.

Supermarket giant Sainsbury’s has reported a second consecutive quarter of falling sales.Its results in the 12 weeks to 7 June reveal like-for-like sales excluding fuel are 1.1% lower compared with last year, having reported in March this year its first fall in sales for nine years.However, own-label Taste the Difference performed well in the quarter, with sales up almost 10%, while the first Sainsbury’s Easter eggs launched this year and more than doubled the company’s own-brand market share to 40%.Sales from convenience and online have almost doubled over the past five years to 15% of total sales. Convenience sales grew by more than 18% year-on-year while groceries online grew by more than 10% in the same period, following improved web and mobile platforms launched in April.Total retail sales for the first quarter were up 1% excluding fuel and down 0.3% including fuel.Price cutsJustin King, chief executive, said: “Throughout the quarter we have continued to invest in reducing prices and improving quality, increasing the value of our offer. Lower food price inflation and reduced fuel prices are a welcome respite to customers’ finances, but they continue to spend cautiously, leading to industry growth in the quarter being the slowest in a decade.“Brand Match continues to reassure our customers that we remain competitive on price for their branded shop. Once again, more than 50% of the vouchers issued confirm to our customers that their branded shop was the same price or cheaper. Recent changes from £20 spend to 10 items makes it even easier for our customers to take advantage of Brand Match.“We expect customer spending to remain cautious and we will continue to invest to keep our offer competitive to help customers balance their household budgets.”
In February, The Claypool Lennon Delirium officially released their second album together, South of Reality, via ATO. South of Reality is the follow-up to 2016’s Monolith of Phobos, the band’s debut record that displayed their fascinatingly raw authenticity, and 2017’s Lime And Limpid Green EP, which featured psychedelic covers of Pink Floyd, The Who, King Crimson, and Flower Travellin’ Band.The Claypool Lennon Delirium Welcomes Rush’s Geddy Lee For Beatles Cover In Toronto [Watch]Les Claypool and Sean Lennon recently stopped by Minnesota Public Radio station The Current, to perform a trio of songs off of South of Reality. The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s in-studio performance began with “Blood and Rockets: Movement I”, Saga Of Jack Parsons – Movement II, Too The Moon”, the lead single off of South of Reality.

Runaway Gin – A Tribute to Phish is gearing up for their 2019 summer tour. After a huge spring including their 300th show and an incredibly received “Make Phish Evil Again” concept show, Runaway Gin – A Tribute to Phish will embark on a 10-show summer tour.Gin Tour is set to launch May 24 at the Charleston Pour House for their annual Memorial Day Weekend show. The next day, they will head to Rooster Walk for a debut performance before taking a break until a much anticipated Phish After-Party in Charlotte where they will only play songs Phish has covered. The meat of the schedule begins after Phish tour with dates in Atlanta, GA; Greenville, SC; the Outer Banks of North Carolina; Virginia Beach; Asheville, NC; Richmond, VA; and Baltimore, MD.L4LM contributor Zach Ubaldini had a chance to shoot lead guitarist Andy Greenberg some questions about the upcoming tour, Runaway Gin’s new gear, and some of Phish’s new music. Anyone planning on making a stop on Gin Tour should check out the merch stands where limited amounts of Game of Thrones-themed shirts will be waiting…Gin Terr is here.If you happen to be in these areas, give Gin a chance, the experience is second to only one. Check out their HD-shot “Reba” along with the complete list of dates below.

What are some of the spots besides home you are excited to hit again?Andy Greenberg: Honestly I am super excited about every spot we are playing this summer! Rooster Walk is going to be a rager, playing the Saturday midnight slot after Galactic and we may have some special guests up as well. Loads of buddies playing in this festival! Charlotte will be insane after Phish – I’ve probably only played about 2 times after Phish at this point and obviously we’re not going to miss their show. We will definitely carry that inspiration back to the Visulite and lay it thick on some funky non-Phish covers. In July we’re back at Terminal West, the Firmament, Salvage Station, OBX Brewing Station, the Broadberry, the 8×10, which all have amazing sound and production. Each of these venues make it easy for us to play at our highest level and I can’t wait to get back to each one to see what happens next! We also have a new venue we’ll be hitting in Virginia Beach called Elevation 27 and we are really really excited about this show because the new venue is supposed to be incredible and our fanbase also seems to be very excited for this show.ZU: What are some cities that have really given you the best feedback?AG: We’ve always gotten a really great response in Tampa/St. Petersburg as well as Atlanta, Richmond, Baltimore, and more recently Asheville. Of course, there’s Charleston–our home where we have played vastly more shows than any other city at this point… Always great vibes from there! Honestly though, most everywhere we’ve played has been amazing!ZU: You guys are known as one of the country’s best Phish tribute bands. With so many people playing Phish, what upgrades has Runaway Gin made in the past year to offer a true Phish experience?AG: Wow, that’s really an honor to hear! We really enjoy playing this music and are really grateful to Phish for being themselves and inspiring this project with their music. I know a lot of fantastic musicians all over the country and beyond on every instrument who also have been inspired to play this music and it’s no competition for us – we do it only for the music and experience… We are constantly upgrading every part of our project.In terms of gear, I just got a new guitar back in November and the rest of the band have all been using in-ears since the last Charleston Pour House run I believe. The in-ears have made a really big difference in the stage mix for me and each of their mixes. Put simply: we can all hear each other better than ever right now. It’s funny how easy it is to take that kind of thing for granted but it’s really tough to communicate with each other without being able to hear each other clearly at all times. Also, it is definitely helping us to sing better! My most recent addition is a synth that I will debut at a show very soon. It is going to give us a broader sonic palette and a wider array of stylistic options during improvised and ambient sections. It’s the same synth Trey used in the late 90’s.ZU: Your Languedoc is obviously a big change…I know it took you nearly 6 years, what was the process toward acquiring it?AG: I really am still not exactly sure how it happened. One day he just responded to my email after many years of no response and was basically like “let’s do this.”ZU: What other upgrades/changes to your rig did you need to make, or did you stay true to Trey’s theory of keeping gear, just understanding it better?AG: Since I got the Languedoc, I haven’t changed anything on my guitar rig. It’s helped me get used to the ‘doc being familiar with all the other aspects – it’s easier for me to hear what changed and build upon that. So yeah, definitely same gear theory and Jerry Garcia’s too. The more variables or “things” that are less within your control, the less you will be able to focus on creating the music itself… which is really what it’s all about.ZU: Last year you guys headlined your first festival. With more spots on lineups like Rooster Walk 11, what is the approach to playing a “power set” opposed from your regular 2 sets?AG: That’s a really great question. There’s so much to think about there… I guess you have to think about the festival–who else is playing, what is your time slot? Then you start to project– what would I like to hear at that point? And then you think–what would everyone else most probably feel invigorated by? The approach has to be vastly different than a headline single bill show. We must become creatively more like a dish in a multi-course meal rather than the main course. More like a picture in a portfolio rather than one single picture hanging as the centerpiece of a room.ZU: As Phish produces more music, what are some things Runaway Gin does to stay current on Phish’s changing style & new music?AG: Definitely going to Phish shows and relistening is the best way to stay current. We constantly change practice techniques, but it’s more based on what we’re currently working on more so than anything to do with where Phish currently is… Well, I guess you could say it all has to do with where Phish currently is musically. It’s really weird what we’re doing really if you think about it. We’ve learned their catalog completely out of chronological sequence which results in us acquiring the “skills” that each song teaches us–as a group and as individual players and singers–out of natural linear sequence. But also you could say that our unique sequence will cause a different narrative arc in terms of the development of the band and jam trajectories.ZU: What’s been your favorite Kasvot Vaxt song to perform, and why?AG: Definitely “Death Don’t Hurt Very Long”. Because it’s super silly and funky and that groove is thick–perhaps Phish’s thickest groove yet. Also, the bass/guitar interplay in the jam is always super fun.ZU: Has the evolution of Phish the past 8 years cultivated an evolution of Runaway Gin’s performance?AG: WIthout a doubt! I was sort of “reborn” into Phish in 2010 and it was from that era that much of the inspiration from my playing of Phish’s material comes from. The earlier material like the 90’s was obviously key in getting me into Phish originally and those shows made me who I am but that was a long time ago. I have listened to the last 8 years of Phish vastly more in the last 8 years than I have any other Phish eras.ZU: Have you taken a crack at any of the Ghosts of the Forest stuff yet on your own or with the band?AG: Yea! Some of that material is just so catchy, it got stuck deep in my head and so I had to figure out exactly what it was. That’s really the same way it was in the very beginning for me with Phish. Many really powerful, gorgeous, and memorable moments throughout the GOTF shows.ZU: What are your top three cities that are next on the list for Runaway Gin – A Tribute to Phish?AG: I am really hoping we finally get out to Colorado soon! I really am looking forward to returning to New York City and I can’t wait to get New Orleans, LA–my home of 6 years before I moved to Charleston.Runaway Gin 2019 Summer Tour:Friday, May 24th: Charleston Pour House – Charleston, SCSaturday, May 25th: Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival – Axton, VAFriday, June 21st: Ophishal Phish Afterparty – Visulite Theatre – Charlotte, NCFriday July 19th, Terminal West – Atlanta, GASaturday, July 20th: the Firmament – Greenville, SCFriday, July 26th: OBX Brewing – Kill Devil Hills, NCSaturday, July 27th: Elevation 27 – VA Beach, VAFriday, August 2nd: Salvage Station – Asheville, NCFriday, August 9th: the Broadberry – Richmond, VASaturday, August 10th: the 8×10 – Baltimore, MDView Tour Dates
Using a continent-spanning telescope, an international team of astronomers has peered to the edge of a black hole at the center of a distant galaxy. For the first time, they have measured the black hole’s “point of no return” — the closest distance that matter can approach before being irretrievably pulled into the black hole.A black hole is a region in space where the pull of gravity is so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape. Its boundary is known as the event horizon.“Once objects fall through the event horizon, they’re lost forever,” says lead author Shep Doeleman, assistant director at the MIT Haystack Observatory and research associate at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA). “It’s an exit door from our universe. You walk through that door, you’re not coming back.”The team examined the black hole at the center of a giant elliptical galaxy called Messier 87 (M87), which is located about 50 million light-years from Earth. The black hole is 6 billion times more massive than the sun. It’s surrounded by an accretion disk of gas swirling toward the black hole’s maw. Although the black hole is invisible, the accretion disk is hot enough to glow.“Even though this black hole is far away, it’s so big that its apparent size on the sky is about the same as the black hole at the center of the Milky Way,” says co-author Jonathan Weintroub of the CfA. “That makes it an ideal target for study.”According to Einstein’s theory of general relativity, a black hole’s mass and spin determine how close material can orbit before becoming unstable and falling in toward the event horizon. The team was able to measure this innermost stable orbit and found that it’s only 5.5 times the size of the black hole’s event horizon. This size suggests that the accretion disk is spinning in the same direction as the black hole.The observations were made by linking together radio telescopes in Hawaii, Arizona, and California to create a virtual telescope called the Event Horizon Telescope, or EHT. The EHT is capable of seeing details 2,000 times finer than the Hubble Space Telescope.The team plans to expand its telescope array, adding radio dishes in Chile, Europe, Mexico, Greenland, and the South Pole, in order to obtain even more detailed pictures of black holes in the future.The work is being published in Science Express.
The walls of Annenberg Hall are lined with Harvard luminaries: University alumni, professors, and benefactors depicted in paintings and sculptures. On Thursday, a new portrait joined the array, that of Richard Theodore Greener, Class of 1870, the first African-American to graduate from Harvard College.Greener was an outstanding Harvard undergraduate who won the prestigious Bowden Prize for elocution in his sophomore and senior years, and was a Class Day speaker at Commencement. A Stoughton Hall resident, he was well respected and went on to a distinguished career in education and public service.Greener’s portrait, by artist Stephen Coit ’71, was commissioned as part of the Portraiture Project, overseen by the Harvard Foundation for Intercultural and Race Relations. S. Allen Counter, the foundation’s director, presided over the unveiling ceremony, which included a performance by the Kuumba Singers, an African-American student group directed by Sheldon Reid ’96. The group performed a musical arrangement of Maya Angelou’s poem “Still I Rise.”Richard Theodore Greener, Class of 1870, was a Stoughton Hall resident. The portrait was done by Stephen Coit, a Class of 1971 graduate. Courtesy of the Harvard FoundationReid, speaking briefly after the performance, called Greener a trailblazer. Reid spoke of the challenges faced by black Harvard students past and present, as did several Harvard College students who are active in African-American student organizations.On behalf of the Harvard Black Men’s Forum, Colin Marts ’16, said Greener’s portrait was “a small step in the right direction.” Thalia Orphee ’18, president of the Association of Black Harvard Women, noted that the overwhelming majority of portraits on campus — in Annenberg and elsewhere — depict white men. Greener’s presence, she said, “helps us begin to paint a more complete picture of Harvard’s history.”“His portrait represents an important change” in the University’s history, David L. Evans said, “but don’t let this be the last change. Continue the change.” Jon Chase/Harvard Staff PhotographerAfter graduating from Harvard, Greener became principal of the male department at the Philadelphia Institute for Colored Youth, which became Cheyney University. He later taught philosophy, mathematics, languages, and history at the University of South Carolina, where he also served as librarian and earned a law degree. Greener served on the Supreme Court of South Carolina and worked as a lawyer in the District of Columbia. He later became a diplomat, holding positions including United States consul to Bombay, India, and Vladivostok, Russia. He was the first American to hold the latter post.David L. Evans, senior admissions officer for Harvard College (whose portrait hangs in Lamont Library), concluded the ceremony by exhorting the students present, some of whom he has advised and mentored, “Greener is a part of the Harvard community, but he also belongs to you.“His portrait represents an important change” in the University’s history, Evans said, “but don’t let this be the last change. Continue the change.”

Health leaders say efforts are now underway to flush out old water from the tank and replace it with clean water from the new well. The water system, leaders say, continues to be monitored on a weekly basis and results will be made available to the public.They say residents should flush their pipes by running their water until it is cold.The DEC continues to investigate the source of contamination and how it can be remediated from the village’s other three wells.
