Concentrated extract specialist Spice Drops has launched a Lime Zest product designed ‘to give a citrus zing of lime, but without the grating’.Made with fresh limes from India, four drops of Lime Zest Spice Drops equates to the zest of one whole lime, according to the company.It can be added to mixtures using the “innovative dropper, which allows accuracy and convenience that grated lime fails to give – not to mention scrape-free knuckles”, Spice Drops said in a statement. The company claimed Lime Zest Spice Drops is more versatile than lime oil “because they blend easily with any liquid, which means they can add the ‘just squeezed’ taste of fresh lime, intensifying the sharp citrus flavour in any dish, without increasing the volume of liquid”.The 31-strong Spice Drops range includes orange and lemon; and herbs and spices such as cardamom, cinnamon, turmeric, saffron, mint, vanilla and rose.All the flavours are made using fresh produce from local farms in India, except for the saffron, which is sourced from Iran. The company said the products have a shelf life of three years.Spice Drops contain no salt, sugar or artificial colouring, flavouring or preservatives, and are gluten-free and suitable for vegans.
Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher will bring the curtain down on a 16-year playing career tomorrow but he has not ruled out making a return to the game in a coaching capacity. Press Association He added: “I am sure I will (miss it). I love the dressing room and getting yourself up for big games, “There is nothing better than being successful and achieving things with your mates – they were great times for us.” Manager Brendan Rodgers said he will miss his regular chats with Carragher about football but hoped he would not be lost to the game in the long run. Chairman Tom Werner has already said the door is always open for the Bootle-born defender to return in some capacity and Rodgers echoed that. “Over the course of the next two to three years he will look to decide what he wants to do,” the Reds boss said. “There is no doubt if you are a footballer with the passion he has you are going to miss it. You are never going to take the football out of him. He has never ruled that (coaching) out but it is not at the forefront of his mind at the moment. I hope one day in the future we can look at that side. “I think he has a great deal to offer on the coaching side but I think there is a natural break off where he needs to go have a period with his family and then he will renew his motivation. You never know what the future holds.” The 35-year-old, due to lead the side out on his 737th appearance for the club against QPR, will become a television pundit next season. However, he accepts nothing will ever replace the buzz of the dressing room and the only job which will come close to that would be as a coach. The centre-back said: “It is very difficult to replace that whatever job you go into. The closest is probably coaching and managing so I suppose if I do miss it so much I will look to get back in at some stage.”
Facebook51Tweet0Pin0Submitted by City of TeninoImpact Bioenergy, on behalf of the City of Tenino, is one of 10 partnerships from across the United States to receive a $50,000.00 Phase 1 “Water Resource Recovery Prize” from the US Department of Energy. The prize seeks to increase resource recovery from municipal wastewater treatment plants across the United States. A two-phase program, Phase 1 challenges teams to submit two high-level facility engineering schematics, a business case demonstrating improvement relative to the existing baseline conditions, and a technical description validating the potential for cost-effectiveness and viability of the resource recovery plan. Phase 1 winners then compete for award of a $250,000.00 Phase 2 prize in order to provide a more detailed plan for financing and construction, supported by quantitative analysis and/or modeling.Councilmember Dave Watterson first approached the City Council with his grant proposal during their regular meeting on May 26, 2020. After receiving Council approval, he then worked with a team of technical specialists from Impact Bioenergy, MacDonald-Miller, and EEFinance to write a grant proposal, which was submitted on May 28. This proposal was accepted and Impact Bioenergy was selected as one of 10 winners on July 9, 2020!!“Dave is a producer” says Mayor Wayne Fournier. “He has been successful bringing innovative renewable energy projects to the area like the award-winning micro-grid project currently being implemented jointly between Puget Sound Energy and Tenino High School, as well as being instrumental in the grant that resulted in the installation of solar panels at Tenino High that greatly reduce the need for purchased energy, thereby saving the School District thousands of dollars.”Watterson explains: “Renewable resources is a passion of mine. The City has been pursuing options for making our wastewater plant more cost effective for the past three years. When I discovered the Water Resource Recovery Prize program, I saw the potential to leverage the ongoing efforts to greatly increase both the effectiveness and efficiency of our operations.”If Tenino, and Impact Bioenergy, is awarded a Phase 2 prize, the City could expect to implement a program that would both accelerate the recovery of valuable resources and lower the ultimate costs of the operation of the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant. Phase 2 winners will be announced in August of 2021.
