The sale is expected to raise several million pounds.The legacy was left to the RNLI by Northamptonshire businessman Richard Colton, a renowned V12 Ferrari collector. He requested that money raised from the sale of his cars be used to build a new lifeboat called Richard and Caroline Colton, named after himself and his late wife.The vehicles are a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB and 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4.(l-r) 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 and 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB – Image copyright and courtesy of H&H Classics. Photo by Neil Fraser.The 1960 Ferrari 250 GT SWB was the second steel, right-hand-drive car delivered, one of a pair of SWBs ordered by Col. Ronnie Hoare to launch Maranello Concessionaires.The 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 is one of 27 UK cars, originally a Maranello Concessionaires demonstrator and ‘the ultimate Enzo-era’ Ferrari road car.Both cars are in “highly original condition”, are ‘matching numbers’, and were owned by Mr Colton for 40 years.The auction will take place on 14 October 2015 at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, Cambridge. It will be run by H&H Classics, one of Britain’s oldest classic car auction houses.Guy Rose, Legacy Manager at the RNLI, said:“We are deeply grateful and humbled by Mr Colton’s generous gift and his decision to benefit the RNLI in this way. Six out of every 10 lifeboat launches are only made possible because of gifts left to us in wills, so they are vital to saving lives at sea. Mr Colton’s generosity will be felt most by our volunteer crews and the people whose lives they save.”Why the RNLI? Described by close friends as “a shy and private man”, he was known to be somewhat nervous of the sea, which may have added to his great respect for the man and women who risk their lives around Britain’s coast.

Frozen Holiday Treats

first_imgFor those who love to prepare meals during the holidays, relieve some of the stress associated with cooking by preparing and freezing holiday treats in advance. Freezing prepared foods allows you the satisfaction of homemade meals with the convenience of store-bought ones.University of Georgia Cooperative Extension has tips for those who plan to freeze prepared food.Freezing will not improve the texture, flavor or quality of food. It only acts to preserve the food’s quality. This is why you should only freeze high-quality products.After cooking the food you plan to freeze, cool it quickly to keep the food safe to eat. Place pans with casseroles and stuffing or dressing into shallow ice baths, for example, if you baked them in nonbreakable pans. Disposable foil pans are a good choice; they can then be dried off and used as the base of the dish to wrap for freezing. Stir hot gravies and some other side dishes in a bowl or pan that is also set down into an ice bath. Never leave perishable food at room temperature for more than two hours.When the food dishes are completely cooled to at least room temperature, package them for the freezer in moisture-vapor resistant materials to prevent freezer burn. Be sure all sealing areas are clean and dry and leave recommended headspace for expansion. This process is explained in detail at https://nchfp.uga.edu/how/freeze/headspace.html.Clearly label each package with the name of the food, the ingredients, the packaging date, special instructions and the amount of food. Package foods in amounts you will be able to use at one time.Freeze food as soon as it is packaged and sealed and place the food in the coldest available part of the freezer. It’s also important to research the ingredients ahead of time to see what foods do not freeze well. You can reference UGA Extension’s recommendations at www.uga.edu/nchfp/how/freeze/dont_freeze_foods.html.When the time comes to thaw out your frozen favorites there are several options available. You can remove frozen food from the freezer and immediately place it in the oven for thawing and heating. Keep in mind that the frozen food should be in a freezer-to-oven safe container. Some foods are best thawed and heated using a double boiler.Foods that are high in protein like fish, meat or eggs should be thawed in the refrigerator or microwave if they have not been cooked from the frozen state. To ensure the safety of your food, do not allow these potentially hazardous foods to stay in the temperature danger zone (40-140 degrees Fahrenheit) longer than two hours.Breads, cakes or cookies can be precooked and thawed at room temperature. Reheat all prepared foods, except nonmeat baked goods, sweets and fruits, to at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit quickly (within two hours).For special instructions on preparing and freezing food, visit www.uga.edu/nchfp/publications/uga/FreezingPreparedFoods.pdf.last_img read more

On the Blogs: The BLM Is Selling Publically Owned Coal for a Song

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Clark Williams-Derry for Sightlines.org:If you’ve been following the news, you probably know that coal is down in the dumps. And as a growing body of academic research and real-world practice shows, owning the rights to coal reserves can give coal companies the ability to profit from price increases, without obligating them to incur losses if mine development looks unprofitable. As it turns out, the right to earn a profit without risking a loss can be worth quite a bit. There’s an entire field of financial economics known as “real options theory,” devoted to estimating the value of speculative projects such as coal mines. We’ve run the numbers, and estimate that even in today’s dismal export market, owning the right to profit from future price increases in export markets could be worth more than $9 per ton.Even in today’s down market, coal leases are worth much more than the federal government has sold them for. Just as importantly, the high prices and wild price swings in export markets can make exports more valuable than domestic sales.Which is all the more reason for BLM to look at the economics of coal exports when deciding the price it will accept for federal coal.Full item: Coal Exports and the Hidden Value of Federal Coal On the Blogs: The BLM Is Selling Publically Owned Coal for a Songlast_img read more
