It looked a lot like speed dating: strangers exchanging introductions and asking questions before a buzzer sounds to mark a switch in conversation partners.But instead of looking for their perfect match, Brock Oenology and Viticulture (OEVI) students were using the 15-minute windows to meet and impress potential employers.Hosted at Pond Inlet by Brock’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) and Co-op, Career and Experiential Education, the Jan. 15 event brought students together with a dozen industry professionals to explore careers in the wine industry, including the booming field of cider production.The evening’s setup offered the chance to ask questions about employment opportunities without the pressure and nerves that sometimes come with a job interview. The list of prospective employers included a research development specialist, a vineyard manager, an oenologist and several winemakers, as well as three representatives from the craft cider sector.A little more than five years ago, there were only a handful of cider producers in Ontario, but today, that number sits at more than 60. “The industry is definitely exploding,” said Antonella Presta, a winemaker and cider maker at Sunnybrook Farm Estate Winery and Ironwood Hard Cider, who came out to meet CCOVI’s latest cohort of talented students. “There are so many different styles and opportunities to make great unique products, not only apple cider but also perry (pear cider) and other fruit ciders. They can be hopped or oaked — the possibilities really are endless.”That innovation has cider makers creating a range of products that appeal to a large and growing consumer base, which has led to a booming industry. With growing demand for cider comes the need for more qualified workers, making the CCOVI career event a solid recruitment opportunity for producers.Colio Estates Wines, in Harrow, Ont., has “changed greatly” since the purchase of Thornbury Cider three years ago and the introduction of Colio’s Cider House, said Chief Financial Officer Derek Cartlidge.The business is currently undergoing a 6,000-square-foot addition and operations have doubled in size over the last several years and continue to grow. That sizeable growth was a big factor in bringing Cartlidge and Colio Estate winemaker Alison Christ to the Brock career night.“It is a great opportunity to get face-to-face with some of these students who may not necessarily think of coming to Lake Erie North Shore, where we are located,” Cartlidge said. “We need help during harvest and we have co-op placements to fill. We are looking for people who are interested in learning and getting a hands-on approach.”Colio and Sunnybrook Farm are just two of the many Ontario wineries now also producing cider.CCOVI is helping apple growers and hard cider producers meet the demands of this rapidly growing market.The Brock institute is the only program provider in Canada to offer a certification in cider production through the Cider Institute of North America (CINA), and also provides analytical testing services to help cider makers deliver the best product possible.“With the strength of the OEVI program and CCOVI’s central role in professional development, our students and alumni are in a great position to be leaders in the growing Canadian cider industry,” said Steven Trussler, the CINA-certified instructor in CCOVI’s cider program. “Seeing these cider-based employers coming to campus to meet our students is great proof of that.”CCOVI is in a position to further drive the industry forward with more advanced courses, including a new professional development program for cider makers that will be unveiled next month at CiderCon — an annual opportunity for the cider community to share ideas, collaborate and learn.“Any time you can get a group of people with experience and knowledge to educate more people about cider, it improves the quality of the entire industry and is great for Ontario,” Christ said.

K. France Germany Italy Japan and Canada–in La Malbaie Quebec on June 8 and 9 is unusually interesting The host nation’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau previewed the G-7 meeting as “extraordinarily valuable because it’s an opportunity for like-minded nations to come together and talk about shared challenges” Like-minded Shared challenges Not with a US President who sees allies as constraints and prefers to get things done by twisting arms and making threats Donald Trump made his mark in the cutthroat world of New York real estate the way a tough-minded poker player bullies those at the table with less money to spend He played as if he had bottomless pockets The guy who is not afraid to lose a few hands likes to push the stakes to go all in and to dare those across the table to accept more risk by staying in the game With that strategy he won many hands without always holding the best cards or sitting on a fat wallet As President Trump brought this strategy to the table with South Korea and Brazil When he made trade threats the governments of those countries knew they could bring the US before the World Trade Organization and (probably) win But that would take years and their economies would suffer much damage in the meantime Instead they cut deals And so they figured: Give the bully some of what he wants and maybe he’ll turn his attention toward someone else (The renegotiation of NAFTA may eventually end in the same fashion) But there are limits to this strategy What happens when someone calls Trump’s bluff If Kim Jong Un steps into the white-hot spotlight that follows Trump and offers him something tomorrow but nothing today what does Trump do about it Launch a strike that risks a war Call him names Threaten tariffs on China so it puts more pressure on North Korea Furthermore what happens when Trump discovers he doesn’t have the big advantage he thinks he has Trump believes (correctly) that if it comes to a trade war the US economy can withstand more pain than the Chinese economy But Chinese President Xi Jinping believes (correctly) that Trump is politically much more vulnerable; Xi doesn’t need to win swing states to remain in charge Sanctions targeted at Trump voters can do more damage more quickly than Trump might expect Finally when you discover you’ve picked a tougher fight than you expected it’s best to have friends in the room Like say the G-7 allies But as those meeting with Trump in Quebec during this summit already know Trump’s “America first” approach is backed by the threat of US power not the opportunities created by shared values and common interests Because of this it’s worth noting the meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization which will bring Russia India Iran and others to China on June 9 and 10 The Europeans Japanese and Canadians all know that trade with China will be a big part of their future China may even soon overtake the US as the EU’s largest trade partner International relations are not a poker game In a world of “every nation for itself”–a G-zero world–it’s harder than ever to accomplish anything ambitious without allies Trump’s indiscriminate use of “I dare you to fight” tactics with friends and foes alike is eroding not only traditional alliances but also the institutions those alliances have sustained over many decades Over the long term that’s bad for the US and bad for the world Contact us at [email protected] This appears in the June 18 2018 issue of TIME IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news society and culture We welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editors The memorandum also stated that the Law School Hijab crises had brought to the fore the myriad of persecution faced by Muslim women because of hijab in various sectors.
Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard dodges free agency questions Ben McLemore to sign 10-day contract with Raptors, report says Linsanity is headed north.The Hawks announced Monday they have waived veteran guard Jeremy Lin. Earlier in the day, his agents told ESPN they were finalizing a buyout with Atlanta that would allow Lin to sign with the Raptors later this week. Hours after the initial report of the pending move, the Raptors announced point guard Fred VanVleet will miss at least three weeks with a thumb injury. With starter Kyle Lowry already managing recurring back troubles, adding Lin could prove to be a critical piece. Related News The 30-year-old is the latest seasoned addition for Toronto, which acquired big man Marc Gasol from the Grizzlies at last week’s trade deadline. Lin has been a productive reserve for Atlanta in his first season with the team, averaging 10.7 points and 3.5 assists through 51 games. Toronto will be his eighth employer in nine seasons in the league.
