first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The nation’s two leading dairy organizations applauded the introduction of a bipartisan bill to help reverse the decline of milk consumption in schools.The School Milk Nutrition Act of 2017, introduced by Representatives G.T. Thompson (R-PA) and Joe Courtney (D-CT), would allow schools to offer low-fat and fat-free milk, including flavored milk with no more than 150 calories per 8-ounce serving, to participants in the federal school lunch and breakfast programs. The bill allows individual schools and school districts to determine which milkfat varieties to offer their students.The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) strongly support the bill and encourage Congress to pass it. Once enacted, the bill would make permanent the administrative changes in the school lunch program proposed earlier this year by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, in one of his first official actions earlier this year, supported giving school districts the option to offer a variety of milk types as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs.“Congressmen Thompson and Courtney recognize the nutritional role that milk plays in helping school-aged children to grow and develop to their full potential,” said Michael Dykes, D.V.M., IDFA president and CEO. “We appreciate their steadfast commitment to reverse declining milk consumption by allowing schools to give kids access to a variety of milk options, including the flavored milks they love.”The legislation includes a pilot program to test strategies that schools can use to increase the consumption of fluid milk.  This could include ways to make milk more attractive and available to students, including improved refrigeration, packaging and merchandising.“Milk is the number-one source of nine essential vitamins and minerals in children’s diets, and when its consumption drops, the overall nutritional intake of America’s kids is jeopardized,” said Jim Mulhern, president and CEO of the National Milk Producers Federation. “When kids don’t drink milk, it’s extremely difficult for them to get sufficient amounts of three of the four major nutrients most lacking in children’s diets:  calcium, potassium, and vitamin D.”He pointed out that in just the first two years after low-fat flavored milk was removed from the school lunch program, 1.1 million fewer school students drank milk with their lunch. The Act also includes a provision to allow participants in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, known as WIC, to have access to reduced-fat milk for themselves and their children.“Expanding options for WIC participants will encourage mothers to help their young children grow up strong and healthy,” Dykes said.last_img read more

first_imgStreaming music service grew by 1.1 million paid subscriptions last year in BritainPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Oct 31, 2017 – 12:34 pm In the big leagues for music streaming services, Spotify financials are scrutinized, including by potential investors. In the first half of 2017, overall, growing revenues and shrinking losses were not good enough to satisfy everyone. But in Britain, things are more cheery as growth is accompanied by profitability.Over the course of 2016, paid subscriptions swelled from 1.7 million to 2.8 million users — a growth of 1.1 million Brits paying monthly from Spotify’s 7.1 million active U.K. visitors. Although year-end profits only amounted to a few million dollars, they grew as did payments to rights holders. That is the win-win combination both Spotify and investors would like to see across its global operations.Last year’s U.K. growth came in part from the platform’s global family plan as well as successful marketing campaigns targeting holidays and summer. In dollars, overall 2016 U.K. revenue grew from $247 million to $312 million mostly thanks to paid subscriptions. Since the music side of its business gives a substantial cut to rights holders, Spotify also looks forward to revenue growth from the advertising side of its business. British ad sales grew last year from $14 million to $23 million, a smaller but more lucrative bottom line, because it doesn’t require paying for music rights.Spotify Reveals Emerging Artists Program Twitter Email Spotify Closed 2016 In UK With 2.8 Mil Paying Subscribers Growth And Profit In The UK For Spotify spotify-closed-2016-uk-28-mil-paying-subscribers Facebook News last_img read more

first_imgAs you start ageing, skin may begin to sag as a consequence of a natural loss and weakening of collagen and elastin. However keeping in mind a few basic steps can help you in getting rid of the sagging skin. Experts list some steps: -Smart SPF: UV damage speeds up the loss of firmness of the skin, therefore wearing a moisturizer with a broad spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis is the easiest way to help prevent sagging. -Moisturize smartly: It is highly recommended to apply a moisturizer with vitamins C and E both morning and night to your face and neck.
