Hold Nothing Back: Eukanuba Launches Premium Performance – A New Breed of Performance Fuel for Sporting and Working Dogs

ST. CHARLES, Mo., Sept. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — For more than half a century, Eukanuba™ has been a champion of sporting and working dogs. Founder Paul Iams focused on performance nutrition with the first dog food made from high-quality animal proteins. After decades of innovation in science-backed nutrition for canine athletes, Eukanuba is introducing Premium Performance, an all-new line of performance products tailored to duration and intensity of activity.

Northwestern University students, senior citizens hold monthly science talks

Olga Ricketts-Peart is not what she calls a “science person.” But she loves science anyway.

The 77-year-old has been attending “Science with Seniors,” a program offered at the Levy Senior Center in Evanston that’s gone online in the past few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The third Thursday of each month, graduate students from Northwestern University meet virtually with seniors from the Levy Center for lectures on science and technology, topics that range from sleep to solar cells.

“It’s a good, brief overview on how these topics affect their lives as adults and seniors,” says Tim Carter, program coordinator of the Levy Center. “And it’s a good way for the Northwestern students to reach out and share what they have learned about their studies.”

The idea for the program came from Suyog Padgaonkar, a chemistry student working on a doctorate at Northwestern. When Padgaonkar started at the university in

Malcolm Cannon: Skills development and transformation hold key to future success

THIS week the IoD (Institute of Directors) celebrated our annual Director of the Year Awards, recognising the Scottish leaders who are rising to the daily challenges of running a business during very difficult circumstances.

The evening highlighted just how important the business community is in Scotland, and how vast our pool of talent is. Scottish businesses are at the heart of our economy, and so it was reassuring to hear the First Minister package up a range of plans to provide ongoing support to businesses last week and make a forceful commitment to their delivery.

Though several initiatives were announced to support a variety of sectors, two key themes cut through for me: skills development and transformation. Both pick up on recommendations laid down in Benny Higgins’ report from the Action Group for Economic Recovery.

The commitment shown to youth employment is especially encouraging. We know there is a lot
