They’re tart but a little sweet and bake well in a pie – they’re just perfect,” she said. Subscribe One of their more interesting flavors was Toasted Oak, which is a common flavor in Scandinavia.  Klemens uses this as an example of the universality of ice cream and describes the concept as similar to aging wine in oak barrels. Her first store, Mother Moo, in Sierra Madre has been going strong for five seasons. After a few a major setback in 2011, when a windstorm put them out of business for five days, Mother Moo returned to normal production and has been growing ever since. She recently opened Moo on Mission where Buster’s used to be. Klemes has always loved the kitchen arts like gardening and baking but decided to make ice cream after taking a course at Penn State. Klemens likes cold ice cream and uses minimal ingredients to achieve a smooth texture. The vanilla ice cream has only six ingredients and each batch is made in their San Marino store. Mother Moo isn’t just ice cream. They’re also known for their butter crust pies, baked goods, sandwiches, root beer floats and coffee drinks. Klemens plans to add more savory food to the menu so that everyone can find something that strikes their mood. She hopes to create an inclusive family and community space. With special touches like a communal table and outdoor seating, Mother Moo provides a welcoming atmosphere. “Ice cream is a universal food and it makes people happy,” she said. One of her favorite parts of the business is watching her customers grow and keeping up with their lives. Klemens explains that ice cream is a family food and many people bring their children and extended family to Mother Moo. First Heatwave Expected Next Week As part of Mother Moo’s mission statement,  Klemens focuses on sourcing local ingredients from small businesses and farmers. Klemens supports Gravenstein Apple Fair in Sebastopol, a farmer dedicated to preserving the Gravenstein apple. This variety of apple has a short shelf life and is in danger of being replaced by more shelf-stable apples. They are one of the only orchards that still cultivate this apple. [Editor’s Note: This story erroneously stated that Mother Moo’s original location was in San Marino. It was not. It was actually in Sierra Madre. The story as been corrected.] Although Pasadena seems to have perpetual summer, ice cream shop success is still measured by season. Karen Klemens explains that summer is the number one season for ice cream sales but they serve scoops all year long. In fact, she prefers her ice cream in the winter.

P2P lending helps SMEs earn more, scale up business: Research

first_imgBorrowers of peer-to-peer (P2P) lending platform Investree, which mostly comprise small and medium enterprises (SMEs), had seen a significant increase in revenue and were able to scale-up business since joining the platform, a study by the University of Indonesia shows.The SMEs had seen an income increase of between 20 percent and 50 percent since joining Investree, including some of the small businesses in manufacturing, services and construction, among others, according to the study by the university’s demography center at the School of Economics and Business.Meanwhile, 44 percent of the entrepreneurs in Investree had also been able to employ more people since borrowing from the P2P platform. Topics : The survey data is calculated based on 261 interviews with the P2P lender clients in Java between December 2019 and January.While the study did not reflect P2P lending during the epidemic, Investree cofounder and CEO Adrian Gunadi said the company still recorded a 90-day loan return rate (TKB 90) of 99.5 percent in June.Previously, Indonesian Fintech Lenders Association (AFPI) data showed that P2P lending platforms had seen Rp 1.08 trillion in outstanding loan restructuring requests in May, but only a fraction, Rp 236.9 billion, had been approved by lenders, sending a signal of potential risky loans.Read also: Requests for loan restructuring on the rise as COVID-19 hits P2P borrowersInstitutional lenders made up 72 percent of the platform’s total lenders in April, while the proportion of retail lenders then rebounded in May to more than half of the total lenders.“Our retail lenders had decreased during the partial lockdown period because borrowing money was not their priority. However, fintech lending is still a viable alternative for SMEs,” Adrian said.In April, Investree also announced its first trench of series C funding worth $23.5 million, as well as a plan to expand its market to Thailand and the Philippines this year.Meanwhile, Research and Technology Minister Bambang Brodjonegoro said fintech lending needed to cater to more SMEs, especially during the pandemic, when the global economy was experiencing a recession.“Going digital by selling on e-commerce can save SMEs and fintech lending can help by supporting their financing,” he said in the press briefing keynote speech.center_img “This research found that fintech lending is able to support financial inclusion and has had a positive impact on SMEs,” UI School of Business researcher Dewa Wisana said in a press briefing on Thursday.The P2P lending helps the borrowers give out short-term loans that enable the SMEs to scale up their business, eventually qualifying them to take out bigger bank loans, Dewa explained.Small businesses contribute more than 60 percent to GDP. However, in April, the Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises Ministry reported that around 37,000 SMEs had reported declining sales and trouble with distribution, among other problems, because of the ongoing health crisis.Online sellers that borrowed from the P2P lending platform were able to increase their income from the initial average of Rp 807 million (US$57,046) to Rp 3.5 billion, the survey also revealed.last_img read more

Chelsea 3-1 Sunderland: Champions lift title as Didier Drogba bows out

first_imgHull City were relegated from the Premier League on Sunday after drawing 0-0 at home to Manchester United on a final day of the season marked by high-profile departures.Hull, beaten FA Cup finalists last season, needed to beat United to stand any chance of staying up, but their failure to do so left them three points adrift of safety.Newcastle United were the only other team at risk of relegation, but they secured their top-flight status with a 2-0 victory at home to West Ham United.Jonas Gutierrez, who returned to action last month after a 17-month battle with testicular cancer, was Newcastle’s saviour, teeing up Moussa Sissoko for a 54th-minute header and scoring with a deflected effort.At Hull, Manchester United were without on-loan striker Radamel Falcao and injured goalkeeper David de Gea, heavily linked with Real Madrid, meaning both may have played their final games for the club.The hosts made an enterprising start and saw Paul McShane and Dame N’Doye have goals ruled out for offside, while United goalkeeper Victor Valdes saved brilliantly from Ahmed Elmohamady. The visitors lost Angel di Maria to injury and saw substitute Marouane Fellaini sent off for an ugly foul on McShane.But home manager Steve Bruce, the former United captain, was unable to engineer a first managerial win over his old employers as Hull sank into the Championship.Steven Gerrard scored in vain on a wretched final appearance for Liverpool as Brendan Rodgers’s side sank to a humiliating 6-1 defeat at Stoke City.With Raheem Sterling benched over his contract stand-off with the club, Liverpool conceded five first-half goals, with Mame Biram Diouf scoring twice and Jonathan Walters, Charlie Adam and Steven Nzonzi also on target.Gerrard replied in the second half, to give the visiting fans one last goal before his departure for the Los Angeles Galaxy, but ex-Liverpool striker Peter Crouch restored Stoke’s five-goal cushion late on. LAMPARD, DROGBA SIGN OFFLiverpool nevertheless qualified for the Europa League alongside Tottenham Hotspur, who won 1-0 at Everton courtesy of Harry Kane’s 21st goal of the league campaign and 31st in all competitions.Gerrard’s former England teammate Frank Lampard also found the net in his final game before leaving England for the United States, but he scored in a winning cause as Manchester City beat Southampton 2-0.The 36-year-old midfielder, who is due to join New York City, converted a cross from James Milner in the first half at the Etihad Stadium, with Sergio Aguero scoring his 26th goal of the campaign in the 88th minute.City’s win condemned Southampton to seventh place, which will yield a Europa League spot if Arsenal beat Aston Villa in the FA Cup final on Saturday. Another departing Premier League stalwart, Didier Drogba, was carried off the pitch by his teammates after injuring himself in the early stages of Chelsea’s 3-1 win at home to Sunderland.At that point, the champions trailed to a 26th-minute Steven Fletcher header, but after Diego Costa, Drogba’s replacement, equalised with a penalty, Loic Remy scored twice in the second half.Arsenal rubber-stamped third place by demolishing West Bromwich Albion 4-1 as Theo Walcott staked a strong claimed for a cup final place with a first-half hat-trick.The England forward, whose season has been disturbed by injuries, scored three times in 33 minutes, with Jack Wilshere also on target. Gareth McAuley replied for West Brom.Villa will go into the cup final on the back of a defeat after a first-half Danny Ings header saw them beaten 1-0 at relegated Burnley. Leicester City celebrated their stunning escape from relegation with a 5-1 romp at home to relegated Queens Park Rangers, who finished the season bottom of the table.In the day’s other game, Crystal Palace beat Swansea City 1-0 courtesy of a 57th-minute goal by Marouane Chamakh.last_img read more

Howard County man who was fugitive pleads not guilty to federal firearms charges

first_imgCEDAR RAPIDS — A Howard County man classified at one point as a “dangerous fugitive” by federal officials has pleaded not guilty to federal firearms possession charges.62-year-old Michael Strain of Lime Springs was indicted eight years ago on two counts of being a felon in possession of firearms. He was accused of possessing 13 various rifles, shotguns and pistols between November 2010 and July 2011 after being convicted of possessing explosives and contempt of court.United States Marshals arrested Strain at a remote ranch on Native American land in Montana earlier this month. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms had listed Strain on their list of 15 “most wanted” fugitives.Officials say Strain is part of the “sovereign citizen” movement. The FBI describes the movement as “domestic terrorists” who say they “don’t have to answer to any government authority, including courts, taxing entities, motor vehicle departments, or law enforcement.”Strain has pleaded not guilty to the firearms possession charges. His trial is scheduled to start on September 16 in United States District Court in Cedar Rapids.last_img read more
