Modular Deck Oven - Polin or Mono?

Modular Deck Oven - Polin or Mono? Submitted by jack-bara on May 27, 2020 - 8:38am. Hi all. First time using The Fresh Loaf. What a great resource.  I have an organic sourdough bakery in Wales, and I have been baking about 100 loaves a day on 3 Rofco B40s for the past 5 years. These fairly basic ovens are getting on a bit (and they lose an awful lot of heat - can't believe Rofco don't insulate their ovens better!), so I'm looking into 'proper' deck ovens. There are two suppliers ne...

Steve Bannon wins case to set up Italy political academy

Steve Bannon, the former adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, has won the latest phase of a legal battle with Italy's culture ministry to set up a right-wing Catholic political academy. The ministry said it would appeal the regional court's decision.

Ask Slashdot: Did Fear and Groupthink Drive Unnecessary Global Lockdowns?

An anonymous reader writes: There's an interesting analysis, which looks at several data points, to conclude that media may have flamed fears that drove the world to enforce lockdowns. From the story: "To put things in perspective, the virus is now known to have an infection fatality rate for most people under 65 that is no more dangerous than driving 13 to 101 miles per day.
