The IS-linked Aamaq news agency said the attacker was responding to its call to target countries in the US-led coalition carrying out airstrikes against IS militants in Syria and Iraq.

Piping organisations unite to create a new Scottish centre of excellence

A move to a new national centre of excellence for piping has been approved this week. The boards of the College of Piping and the National Piping Centre have agreed, in principle, that the College will transfer its charitable and commercial activities to The National Piping Centre in Glasgow. This bold move will allow for the study and performance of Scotlands national instrument. The two charities have agreed that this is the best way to promote and support piping in future. The combined organisation will operate under the name The National Piping Centre, incorporating The College of Piping. It will continue to offer a full range of educational activities and qualifications, to act as a home to The National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland and to host Piping Live!, the Glasgow International Piping Festival. Pipers will benefit from the union of the College of Piping and the National Piping Centre The board of directors of the National Piping Centre will be joined by the present chairman of the College of Piping. The College of Piping, based in Otago Street, Glasgow, was formed in 1944 by Seumas MacNeill and Thomas Pearston to pass on the art of the Great Highland Bagpipe to all who wanted to learn, while the National Piping Centre, based in Glasgows McPhater Street, was founded in 1996 by Sir Brian and Lady Ivory and Sandy Grant Gordon. Colin MacNeill, the chairman of the College of Piping, said: To merge the organisations at this time makes sense for many reasons, not least because this is the best thing to support the tuition and promotion of the history and performance of the bagpipes. This will be extremely positive for the bagpipe world. Sir Brian Ivory, on behalf of the National Piping Centre said: We are delighted that the College of Piping has decided to join us. It has played a very important role in support of the piping tradition since 1944. The National Piping Centre teach every level of piper, with the youngest being three years old, and the eldest is 93, teaching over 900 people every month.

Scotch Whisky gets protected legal recognition from New Zealand

Scotlands national drink has secured enhanced legal protection form down under, to protect its brand name. The Scotch Whisky Associations application to register Scotch Whisky as a Geographical Indication (GI) has been successful in New Zealand. This recognition means the term Scotch Whisky can only be used on whisky produced in Scotland in accordance with strict production and labelling requirements. Requirements include that Scotch only be made from the raw materials of water, cereals and yeast and matured in Scotland for at least three years in oak casks. Scotchy Whisky is now a protected term in New Zealand Scotch Whisky is the first foreign GI to be registered by the New Zealand Intellectual Property Office. New Zealands GI scheme is designed to give greater legal protection to domestic and international wines and spirits and protect consumers against fakes. The granting of GI status for Scotch Whisky greatly enhances the basic protection previously given under New Zealands Food Standards Code, which did not contain a comprehensive legal definition of Scotch Whisky. This development comes on the back of a strong year for Scotch in New Zealand as exports rose by 27% in 2017 to almost £8 million. New Zealand now joins more than 100 other countries which have officially recognised Scotch Whisky as a Scottish product, produced according to traditional methods, and deserving of special protection. Lindesay Low, legal deputy director of the Scotch Whisky Association, said: Until recently a gap existed within the New Zealand Food Standards Code which made it comparatively difficult to prevent the sale of spirits being passed off as “Scotch” in New Zealand. In working to close this loophole, the industry has enjoyed great support from the British High Commission in Wellington, as well as the Intellectual Property Office New Zealand (IPONZ). Our successful application to register “Scotch Whisky” as a GI in New Zealand gives the industry a much greater level of legal protection and represents an important milestone for Scotch Whisky as its popularity increases. Scotlands national drink is a protected term in New Zealand now It is vital that consumers have confidence in the provenance of what they are buying which this recognition of Scotch as a Geographical Indication will help to achieve. Looking ahead, we hope that a comprehensive free trade agreement between New Zealand and the UK will be signed, following Brexit, to further improve the status of Scotch Whisky and help to build on recent market growth. Laura Clarke, British High Commissioner to New Zealand, said: I am delighted that we have secured this legal protection for Scotch Whisky. Scotch Whisky exports to New Zealand increased by 27% in 2017 to almost £8 million. By successfully registering Scotch Whisky as a GI we have ensured that there is a strong base of legal protection on which future growth can be built. This is a boon for all. Those enjoying a wee dram of Scotch can now enjoy it in the full confidence that it is genuine Scotch. Only products that have a specific geographical origin and possess a quality and a reputation or other characteristic associated with that origin qualify for GI status. That means Scotch Whisky is recognised as a product that must be made in Scotland. The Scotch Whisky Association is also registering Scotch Whisky as a GI in as many countries as possible.

Leading Scottish cosmetic expert gets ready to host a masterclass

One of the UKs most distinguished cosmetic experts is set to speak volumes as she hosts an in-depth industry masterclass at a prestigious Glasgow university. Jackie Partridge, who founded Edinburgh-based Dermal Clinic with husband Jarrod in 2007, will share her expertise with an audience of 85 cosmetic professionals at the University of Strathclyde on Wednesday, 7 March. The educational masterclass will take a first look at the theme of lips through the ages ahead of Jackies appearance at the Aesthetics Conference & Exhibition (ACE) in London next month. Jackie Partridge from Edinburgh-based Dermal Clinic In addition to answering questions from the floor, Jackie will also share an array of tips on effective treatments for enhancing and restoring, plus live injection techniques. Jackie, who is a founding board member of the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN), said: The day will be a real mix of teaching, presenting and live demonstrations, with plenty of tips and tricks thrown in. I will be at Strathclyde University all day, answering any questions practitioners may have and performing live injections. These presentations can be quite daunting, but Im excited to get on stage and share my tricks of the trade with the other practitioners. Jackie performing a face injection during a stage demonstration Known for her encyclopaedic knowledge and support of responsible facial treatments, Jackie was hand-picked last year by global pharmaceutical giant, Galderma, to sit on their expert panel of dermatologists and plastic surgeons. The high-profile panel of four aims to support the development of aesthetic medicine and best practice of nurses by reaching thousands of industry professionals worldwide. The esteemed group have already trialled a series of test events for practitioners involved in cosmetic surgery and cosmetic treatments, with TVs Dr Christian Jessen chairing the panel. Jackie will continue to share her knowledge with Galderma next month at ACE in London on Friday 27 April. Jackie said: Lip treatments have become increasingly popular and there are a lot of options out there for people to choose from. It is important that individuals pick their practitioner wisely and understand the process involved, otherwise results can be risky. Jackie Partridge with Dr Christian Jessen At Dermal Clinic we use Galderma lip fillers which contain hyaluronic acid – a substance that is already naturally present in your body. This means that you are topping up with a natural product. We look to restore and enhance – not add. Ultimately its about creating the freshest version of you, because you should be able to look and feel naturally beautiful at any age. Further highlighting her push to raise industry standards on a global scale, in 2016 Jackie was headhunted to help usher in new Scottish Government-led regulations. All private clinics are now required to register with Healthcare Improvement Scotland – with Dermal Clinic being the first to register in November 2016. The multi-award- winning clinic, located on Church Hill Place in Morningside, offers state-of- the-art cosmetic treatments performed by medically-qualified practitioners.

Property with a connection to Robert the Bruce is offered for sale

A historical hotel reputed to be sited near where Robert the Bruce was inspired by a spider is on the market. Dunvalanree, a hotel on the stunning West Highland beach where Robert the Bruce landed while fleeing the English following an early setback, is being offered for sale. Located in the tiny Kintyre hamlet of Port Righ, sits on a sandy cove overlooking the Isle of Arran. A popular guest house with restaurant for the past two decades, it has previously has been graded four stars by Visit Scotland as a Restaurant with Rooms, and had entries in the Good Food Guide and Good Hotel Guide. Dunvalanree is located in a site linked to Robert the Bruce The seller has owned the Dunvalanree since 1998 and operated continuously through to the end of the 2016 season. For personal reasons the business did not operate or open for business in 2017. Dunvalanree is an attractive and substantial property, built in 1939, which has a superb location overlooking Port Righ Bay, just south of Carradale on the Kintyre peninsula. This beautiful location conjures endless notions of romanticism, and rightly so, but on a more macabre note Port Righ is also infamously known as the only place in the UK where there has been recorded fatalities – in 1937 – resulting from a shark attack, from a basking shark. On a more historical note, Port Righ is also believed to have been the landing point for Robert the Bruce, whilst escaping from the English, and where, allegedly, loosely the cave is located in the locality where Robert the Bruce had his spider experience. Dunvalanree is a hotel on a stunning West Highland beach Alistair Letham, a director in the UK hotels agency team at Colliers International, said: Dunvalanree, which has traded very successfully over the past 20 years, is a super property in an outstandingly idyllic location. It is an ideal opportunity for those seeking that definitive life-style change, with the potential of a good little income. The Kintyre peninsula is a sought after destination by many and Dunvalanree can easily capitalise on this appeal. Alongside the seven letting bedrooms, lounge and restaurant, Dunvalanree comes with a detached self-catering cottage and a four-bedroom private flat for owners. Colliers International is seeking offers of around £450,000. For more information, click HERE.
