first_imgUS base Liberian Chef Chauncy Yarngo.If all goes well, Liberia will soon have its first postwar culinary arts school: the Kola Culinary Institute (K.C.I.).The school which is a proposed project of US-based Liberian professional chef, Chauncy Yarngo, doesn’t have a definite date about its opening due to a slow start in the fund-raising campaign. However, According to Chauncy, the core function of the proposed culinary school is to train local chefs about food safety, and the standard steps involved in preparing and presenting food.Chauncy added, he thought about opening the culinary arts school two months ago when he visited Liberia and noticed that restaurants were not preparing food following the proper guidelines and standards which is intended to make sure foods are safe and healthy.“Now it’s time to go and donate. Having a cooking school in Liberia is a must; not only is there a void, but Liberians and other African countries need to learn how to handle food safely,” he said. “I told myself that if I ever got back home, I would try to open a restaurant because I thought everyone already knew about food and safety standards and were privy to protocols when preparing food.“But that was not the case when I finally had a chance to get back home. Therefore, I realized that there is a need for an organization to make sure restaurants prepare our food following the proper guidelines to make it safe and healthy,” the ambitious Liberian chef said.Chauncy is based in a San Francisco. He migrated to the US in the early 2000s due to the civil war in Liberia and is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of Virginia.The young Liberian chef, who has cooked for the likes of Will Smith, Jay Z and Rihanna, was introduced to cooking by his grandmother in Bong County who taught him a lot about cooking, including the traditional fufu dish – a traditional West African dish made from the tuber root, cassava.Chauncy added that the proposed culinary school, upon establishment, will open with certificate programs which will run between six to twelve months.“The school will offer certificates in two-fold: a certificate in cooking for six months and a certificate in restaurant management course and cooking for a year. Liberian and African foods, in general, are rich but due to the lack of culinary school in the country, they contain heavy starch filled and overloaded with processed spices.“Furthermore, in restaurants across the country meats are cooked to a crisp and vegetables stewed beyond recognition. However, things will be different when the school is established to help train local chefs about food cooking standards and many more culinary arts courses,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgI found the unveiling of architect Frank Gehry’s designs for the Grand Avenue development exciting, bold and encouraging. The core of our city would have a true center that helps define our sprawling metropolis. Yet there was a gaping hole in the plan: There are no green building standards. The lack of any green building and broader commitment to environmental sustainability in the plan is a missed opportunity. The city of Los Angeles was one of the first cities in the nation to pass a municipal green building policy, requiring all new construction to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certified national voluntary standard that defines high performance green buildings, and strives for a LEED Silver rating with 10 percent of energy needs met on site through solar and other clean distributed generation technologies. The Los Angeles Community College District, for example, embraced LEED Silver for many of its 50 new buildings on nine campuses, a total of $3 billion in new construction. The Los Angeles Unified School District has embraced another green standard for schools, ensuring the $14 billion in new school construction will result in classrooms with healthier indoor air quality and schools with lower energy bills for decades to come. To fill this hole in the Grand Avenue design, the county of Los Angeles should pass a green building policy requiring that all buildings on county land and/or built with county funds meet LEED standards. And the Grand Avenue Committee should add environmental sustainability to its core criteria in shaping the final design of the buildings. Otherwise, this is not just a lost opportunity; it’s an opportunity cost that puts a great burden on future residents, occupants and tenants. Matt Petersen is president and CEO of Global Green USA, the American affiliate of Green Cross International, and serves on the city of Santa Monica Environmental Task Force.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Why green building? Green buildings increase productivity, performance and profits. The indoor climate is healthier. For schools, studies prove that students score higher on tests and attendance goes up when they’re in healthier classrooms. Green buildings address climate change. More than 40 percent of the world’s energy and resources go into the design, construction and maintenance of buildings. About one-third of the greenhouse gas emissions come from the electricity used in buildings. In a state where we recently experienced an electricity crisis, why doesn’t the design help meet much of the energy needs on site, at least those that can help reduce peak demand and meet emergency power needs? Why not accentuate the opportunities for harvesting the power of the sun, a free feedstock for energy, for all the buildings on site? Why no indication in the plan for capturing rainwater and storm runoff on site? Why no attempt in the design to capture and use the wind blowing between or past them to create energy? What if the buildings and land all shared services, like energy, with one building producing power from solar and fuel cells that is shared with other buildings to reduce peak demand? last_img read more

first_imgA woman who claimed more than €18,000 in job seeker’s allowance while having €140,000 in her bank account has been ordered to donate €2,000 to charity. Monica McDaid appeared at Falcarragh District Court charged with making a false claim against the Department of Social Protection. The mother-of-two made the claims totalling €18,127.70, between 2013 and 2015.Department of Social Protection Inspector Mary McGovern told the court that Ms McDaid, of Carrownamaddy, Dunfanaghy, was asked to declare if she had any savings in her accounts when claiming supplementary welfare and job seeker’s allowance.The court was told that Ms McDaid’s savings came to light following information received by Revenue in February 2016 relating to a tax amnesty of which Ms McDaid’s name was contained.When interviewed over her savings, Ms McDaid made immediate admissions.All the monies claimed had been paid back in full to the Department.Her solicitor, Mr Frank Dorrian, said his client was very candid about the money she had in her accounts.However, he said she had disclosed one bank accounts and had presumed that the Department of Social Protection would then have access to all of her accounts.“She thought this money would turn up in these accounts and everyone would know about it,” said Mr Dorrian.Inspector McGovern said this would not be the case.Mr Dorrian added the money had been an inheritance and that Ms McDaid was a 64-year-old mother of two adult children who had worked hard all her life in England before returning home to Donegal.Judge Paul Kelly said the problem was that such offences were not blameless as there were many people in genuine need of social welfare payments.He asked Mr Dorrian if his client was prepared to make a donation of €2,000 to St Vincent de Paul.He adjourned the case until April 18th and said if the donation was made then he would apply the Probation Act.Woman who claimed €18,000 in job-seeeker’s allowance had €140,000 in bank was last modified: February 24th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
