Alberta looks to private sector and pipelines to deliver better times

  Alberta looks to private sector and pipelines to deliver better times The Alberta government has built a budget that foresees better times — though it doesn't assume a quick rebound.To use a baseball analogy, he called his shot.

When you make coffee , you only use 0. 2 % of the coffee 's nutrients. Only the coffee aroma ends up in the coffee you drink. The remaining 99.8% are disposed as coffee grounds. Instead of disposing the coffee grounds, Beyond Coffee collects it . We use it to grow delicious oyster mushrooms.

2 Cup Coffee Maker have been popular for a considerable time frame, but are not very well known. Good to have in your house or small office. Two minutes is all it requires to make 2 cups coffee , so that it is ideal for many who desire a quick cup, but don’t possess lots of time to get ready.

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — The Second Cup Ltd. intends to change its name to Aegis Brands Inc. as part of a plan to diversify beyond coffee shops.

The Toronto-area company says the name change is subject to approvals from shareholders and the Toronto Stock Exchange, where its shares are listed.

Steven Pelton, who has been Second Cup's president and CEO since May, will be chief executive of Aegis Brands.

Aegis will own and operate the existing Second Cup Coffee Co. as one of a portfolio of brands.

The company says it's also seeking acquisitions in the foodservice, coffee and cannabis sectors.

The name change was announced as Second Cup reported a third-quarter loss as sales at its cafes fell from the same time last year.

Alberta finance minister says diversifying revenues is a long-term 'luxury'

  Alberta finance minister says diversifying revenues is a long-term 'luxury' CALGARY — Alberta's finance minister says the province will have the luxury of diversifying its revenues once its budget is balanced. Travis Toews told a Calgary Chamber of Commerce luncheon that the government should look at ways to become less dependent on volatile oil and natural gas royalties in the long term. But he says the United Conservative government's priority right now is to eliminate the deficit by cutting spending and not raisingTravis Toews told a Calgary Chamber of Commerce luncheon that the government should look at ways to become less dependent on volatile oil and natural gas royalties in the long term.

The company feels it can leverage its brand to open up coffee stores internationally while in the more mature American market, it needs to diversify to grow at a brisk pace. The channel development segment includes packaged products as well as K- cups and brewers sold through third party retailers.

QUESTION: Can I re-use the same K- Cup to make multiple cups of coffee or do I need to change the K- Cup each time? If you find that wasteful, and a lot of Keurig brewer owners do, you can get a Keurig My K- Cup Reusable Coffee Filter .

The corporation posted a $762,000 net loss and a $62,000 adjusted net loss with about $6.7 million of revenue. System sales were $32.9 million and same-store sales, a key metric for retailers, fell 2.9 per cent.

Net loss was four cents per share and adjusted net loss per share was insignificant.

The adjusted loss excluded a reduction in the value of Second Cup's investment in National Access Cannabis warrants.

A year earlier, Second Cup had a $766,000 net profit, and $432,000 adjusted net profit with about $5.9 million of revenue and $35.7 million of system sales from its cafes.

'Game of Thrones' coffee cup mystery deepens after Conleth Hill denies Emilia Clarke accusation .
Game of Thrones' eight-year run ended in May to decidedly mixed reviews. But a subplot from the series is still fascinating viewers six months on: the mystery of who left a rogue coffee cup in full view during a scene of the fantasy drama. And now the saga has taken another twist, after the alleged culprit denied responsibility for the incident, which caused a stir on social media during the show's final series. Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen, had accused her co-star Conleth Hill of admitting to the faux pas last month.
