South African cuisine takes centre stage at a restaurant in London. Situated near Buckingham Palace, bbar serves everything from boerewors to bunny chow.South African food is being served at bbar, a restaurant near Buckingham Palace. (Image: bbar)Compiled by Priya PitamberA hop and a skip away from Buckingham Palace in London lies bbar, a cocktail bar and restaurant offering an array of South African dishes. Think bobotie springrolls, biltong, chakalaka, boerewors and Cape Malay curries.It is owned by South African hotelier Beatrice Tollman, whose expertise, along with that of her husband, Stanley, extends to the Red Carnation Group of 17 luxurious hotels across South Africa, the UK and US. It includes Durban’s The Oyster Box and The Twelve Apostles in Cape Town.Stanley named the restaurant bbar as a tribute to Beatrice’s love for home-grown recipes. Her passion for the kitchen is also documented in her cook book, A Life in Food. It contains recipes passed down through the family as well as creations inspired by her travels.The South African influence“There seems to be a demand for South African cuisine in London,” said general manager Ian Powrie, speaking to the Sunday Times. “At the bbar there is a huge demand for bobotie, SA style Cape Malay curries, biltong, boerewors and avocado-based salads.”There is no one that does #NationalCurryWeek like bbar.

In 1954, she opened her first hotel in Johannesburg called the Nugget. But she also fondly remembers their second hotel, the Hyde Park Hotel.“We named the main restaurant there The Colony, inspired by the supper clubs of New York and it soon attracted international cabaret stars (e.g. Petula Clark and Trini Lopez) and famous guests such as Marlene Dietrich, George Peppard and Michael Caine,” Tollman told lifestyle news website, Belle About Town.“It was a very exciting time; these famous people stayed at our Hyde Park Hotel! We ran three other restaurants from this same hotel.”No day was ever the same in the hotel industry, she said, which gave her great enjoyment.Her love for foodAccording to Powrie, bbar is to showcase Beatrice’s recipes and it is a thank you from Stanley for the hard work during the early years of business.Beatrice firmly believes food brings people together. “Gathering friends and family together for a fantastic meal is a bonding experience and helps maintain close relationships in a world where everyone’s lives are getting increasingly busy.”Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort That was not the only record Dimitrov set. After winning all five of his matches at the O2 Arena, he became the first player to win the elite tournament on debut since 1998, when Alex Corretja of Spain triumphed in Hanover.“I was a little bit tired,” said Dimitrov, who beat Goffin for the loss of just two games when they met on Wednesday. “I had to play a few matches obviously back-to-back against solid opponents. I knew that David is going to try something new. He had to be aggressive in order so he doesn’t let me play my game.”Goffin’s adjustments paid off early as he broke Dimitrov’s first two service games either side of losing his own, before settling down to control the opener.However, Dimitrov fought his way back. He leveled in the eighth game before breaking once more in the 12th to snatch the set, despite Goffin hitting eight more winners.Dimitrov’s confidence carried into the second set, where he brought up the first break point in the sixth game, only for Goffin to produce a stunning cross-court backhand winner to save it. The momentum back with him, Goffin broke the following game for a 4-3 lead and calmly closed out the set.ADVERTISEMENT Filipino athletes get grand send-off ahead of SEA Games PLAY LIST 01:27Filipino athletes get grand send-off ahead of SEA Games00:50Trending Articles00:59Sports venues to be ready in time for SEA Games01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games Tams rip Eagles, force do-or-die Read Next Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria lifts the trophy after beating David Goffin of Belgium in their ATP World Tour Finals singles final tennis match at the O2 Arena in London pn Sunday, November 19, 2017.

And right now those are the moments that I rise up to.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutIt was not the Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal matchup many fans had hoped for, but they were left satisfied as the two 26-year-olds delivered the longest final since the tournament returned to a three-set format in 2008.Dimitrov won in 2 hours, 30 minutes, 15 seconds, adding 11 minutes to the mark set by Federer and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in 2011. Having become the sixth player to beat Nadal and Federer at the same tournament — the latter from a set down in the semifinals — Goffin had every reason to be confident after drawing level. But he wasted four break points in the opening game and they would turn out to be his only chances in the decider.“I think after this week I’m a better player mentally,” said Goffin, who ends the season at a career-high No. 7 ranking. “I proved to myself that I can do it.”Dimitrov was more clinical, striking in the sixth game to take control of the third set. However, the Bulgarian has had problems closing matches out this season — losing three times after holding match points — and had cause for concern when Goffin saved his first three to hold from 0-40 down at 2-5.Dimitrov served his way to 40-15 but saw another chance drift away, before Goffin finally netted a backhand volley to end the match.“I was a little bit tired in the third,” Goffin said. “It’s the only game maybe I didn’t serve well. I didn’t put a lot of first serves in that game … He was really solid.”Dimitrov claimed his first Masters title in Cincinnati in August, and having risen to a career-high No. 3-ranking with victory in London, his next target is a Grand Slam.“I don’t want to get too hyped up because I’ve done well, now I’m No. 3 in the world,” Dimitrov said. “Of course, one of my main goals is to win a Grand Slam tournament.

3 sackings in 4 years: In image & spirit this is Woodward’s Man Utdby Chris Beattie10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCOMMENT: It’s happened again. Another one’s gone. A third sacking in four years. A fourth manager – soon to be a fifth – to be hired in that time. And Manchester United – again – return to the drawing board.A new man is now to arrive. A new pattern of play to be introduced. A new staff. New players. More change. More upheaval. Five years of uncertainty. Of instability. Though with one constant. The one man responsible for all this. The one who has overseen this managed decline of the world’s biggest club.Jose Mourinho is gone. But the man who hired him is still in power. As he was for the appointment of David Moyes. The hiring and demoting of Ryan Giggs. The arrival of Louis van Gaal. And of course, the signing of Mourinho. And yet, it’ll still be Ed Woodward who chooses the next manager. Just as it is he who has found Mourinho’s interim replacement. Kieran McKenna and Michael Carrick will be in charge of training this week, but United’s vice-chairman exec already has his former manager’s replacement lined up. The temporary appointment expected to be someone with no past connections with the club – that is apart from those cozy chats with Woodward.Yes. Yes. We can hear you. Mourinho has found himself in the same position as Van Gaal did three years ago. The Dutchman, to this day, claiming Mourinho and Woodward connived behind his back as he led United to a first FA Cup triumph in 12 years. But two wrongs don’t make a right. So again, another manager arrives. With his ideas. His approach. Let’s say, an experienced Guus Hiddink type. To muddle through to the end of the season. Well, that’d be the right thing to do. To put the club on autopilot ahead of the new man arriving. The fulltime manager. Woodward’s real choice. To go in there with a blank slate and start again.But there’s a Champions League tie with PSG to navigate. An FA Cup run to tackle. And a top four push to salvage. The caretaker will have to impose his ideas. His system on the players. Break down what Mourinho had them doing and build them up again. Only for, come June, to have all that work scrapped – again – by the fulltime manager.But that’s okay. No, really. Woodward knows what he’s doing. Clearly he does. Just look at his track record…That track record has three managers now on the dust heap. And there’s something to be said about those three managers and the relationship they had with Woodward. We may not get it directly from Mourinho, a gag clause in his payout will put paid to that hope. But his two predecessors have given us plenty. Bitter. Resentful. Not of the club. Nor the man who replaced them. But of the one who hired, then fired, them. Just over the weekend, Moyes, clearly the most personable of the trio, admitted his treatment still “rankled”.“It still rankles now because I felt I was suited for it. I didn’t think it was in Manchester United’s DNA to change a manager so quickly,” said the Scot. And then there’s Van Gaal, who really was sounding the warning to Mourinho and United in general about the club’s prime decision maker.”He never discussed anything with me – and you can talk about anything with me,” Van Gaal has said previously. “With all my experience, I know the unwritten laws of football. A club has to prepare for the future.“I can understand that and they should have approached me. Ed could talk to me but he did not.”Sound familiar? Well, if you’ve been paying attention it will. Mourinho never went as far as LVG. But his confidants let us know – including this column – that what he found with Woodward was just the same as the old Dutch master described. So who truly sets the tone at this club? The manager? The scowling. Bad tempered gaffer? Or does that image reflect what the man in the dugout has had to contend with since 2013? Good man-management at a club should never be restricted to those in charge of the football operation. It also goes for the higher ups. How they conduct business. How they build and foster relationships. It all filters throughout an organisation. Yes, the spirit of a dressing room leans heavily on the direction of the manager. Just as the manager’s morale has a reliance on his relationship from those upstairs.The attitude and resentment displayed by all three of United’s fulltime managers since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement speaks volumes. Ed Woodward is failing this club. Just as he has failed his three managerial appointments. Changing the face in the dugout will never be enough to get this club fulfilling it’s potential again.The managed decline will continue until improvements are made above the head of Manchester United’s next manager.

Ohio State Quarterback Braxton Miller ShoulderLast week, it was reported that Ohio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller had been “fully cleared” for football activities with no limitations. Miller, who missed all of last season with a torn labrum in his shoulder, has been making very good process with his rehabilitation this offseason. He’s added some muscle and his body looks great. His arm looks pretty good, too. Here’s some footage of the two-time Big Ten MVP throwing the ball a bit this afternoon. It’s not much, but that has got to be something Ohio State fans will love to see.
Categories: Vaupel News Bill package helps ensure the safety of adopted kids Legislators today introduced a four-bill package to prohibit and punish the practice of informal child custody transfers.“In some cases, parents are using online forums to offer adopted children to strangers, which results in children being ‘rehomed’ into potentially abusive and unsafe environments,” said Rep. McCready, R-Bloomfield Hills. “Parents should not be allowed to permanently place a child under the care of another person without any oversight.”House Bill 5629, sponsored by Rep. McCready, prohibits a parent from transferring custody of a child for more than 180 days. Current law allows a temporary custody transfer to take place, using a power of attorney, if it does not exceed 180 days.HB 5628, sponsored by Rep. Hank Vaupel, criminalizes the transfer of custody with the intent to permanently divest oneself of parental responsibility, and also prohibits assisting or arranging an unregulated custody transfer.“This is about what’s best for children’s safety, plain and simple,” said Rep. Vaupel, R-Fowlerville. “Every child in Michigan deserves to be raised in a safe and secure home environment. These bills prevent an unregulated custody practice that can put children in danger.”HB 5626, sponsored by Rep. Tom Hooker, prohibits a person from advertising for potential adoptive parents without court involvement. HB 5627, also sponsored by Rep. Hooker, classifies soliciting a child for adoption as a Class F felony.“Children are our most precious treasure, requiring love and nurturing,” said Rep. Hooker, R-Byron Center. “Any person who tries to market children as a commodity deserves to be stopped and punished.”The bills were referred to the House Committee on Judiciary for consideration.Sen. Rick Jones has introduced similar legislation, Senate Bills 923-926.“We have a responsibility to all Michigan children to protect their safety,” said Jones, R-Grand Ledge. “We don’t want to see people advertising children on the Internet. Children are not for sale. Plus, we never know who will respond; they could be a child abuser or a child molester. Ensuring proper precautions are taken is the best way to protect these children.”##### 04May New legislation prohibits unregulated custody transfers of adopted children
Categories: Lucido News 21Mar Rep. Lucido joined by time-change expert for committee hearing State Rep. Peter Lucido, left, speaks in support of his legislation to end the twice-annual time change in Michigan. Time-change expert Scott Yates, right, joined him to testify before the House Commerce and Trade Committee.Rep. Peter Lucido, of Shelby Township, was joined today by time-change expert Scott Yates to speak in support of legislation to eliminate the twice-a-year time changes in Michigan.Lucido, the Shelby Township legislator sponsoring the bill, said the twice-a-year time changes are disruptive, making employees late to work and negatively affecting how students perform at school.“We’ve been flipping our clocks around for nearly 100 years, and it just doesn’t make sense. No one can provide a good reason about why we continue to participate in the time change, but loads of people have very valid reasons about why we shouldn’t,” Lucido said. “Teachers complain that it’s disruptive to students, dairy farmers will tell you their cows produce less milk because of the time change, business owners notice lower productivity in their employees, and study after study has shown that changing the clocks has negative health effects.”Reports have shown increases in heart attacks, seizures, strokes and on-the-job injuries due to time changes. A 2014 study by the American College of Cardiology shows a 25-percent jump in heart attacks occurred the Monday after moving the clocks, compared to other Mondays during the year. Another study from the Journal on Health Medicine showed an increase in hospitalizations due to strokes in the two days following the time changes from 2004 to 2013.“Science shows how bad it is for people to change times,” Yates said. “The statistics are very clear that time change does effect everybody.”Rather than end Daylight Saving Time, however, Lucido is proposing that Michigan eliminate the time change by remaining in Daylight Saving Time all year round.“We’re already in Daylight Saving Time for nine months out of the year, it makes sense for us to just stay there,” Lucido said. “That’s what the majority of people I’ve spoken to all across Michigan want because it gives families more time to spend outside in the evening. This will lead to more active children and help combat childhood obesity.”House Bill 4011 remains under consideration by the House Commerce and Trade Committee.###
Categories: Annette Glenn News 19Mar Michigan House approves Rep. Glenn’s plan to boost government transparency Legislation extends open record requirements to governor, LegislatureState Rep. Annette Glenn’s plan to make state government more accountable to the people of Michigan was unanimously approved today by the Michigan House.Glenn, of Midland, said Michigan is one of just two states that still exempts its governor and state legislators from open records laws. Her legislation is part of a bipartisan plan to end these exemptions and increase transparency in state government.“With this solution, we will ensure people receive the transparency they deserve from all of their elected officials,” Glenn said. “This added accountability will go a long way toward restoring the public’s trust in their government.”The proposal will subject the governor and lieutenant governor to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and hold state representatives and senators to the same high standard by creating the Legislative Open Records Act (LORA).While LORA mirrors FOIA in many ways, there are exemptions for constituent inquiries to ensure that personal information is protected and kept private. Other communications lawmakers have with state departments and lobbyists would not be exempt.House Bills 4007-13 and 4015-16 now advance to the Senate for consideration.###
