Continuing Momentum of Free Trade Agreements Welcome News for Soybean Growers

first_imgTrade negotiations are officially on the horizon with the European Union, Japan and the United Kingdom, continuing the momentum generated by a bilateral deal with South Korea (KORUS) and a renegotiated NAFTA agreement with Mexico and Canada, now the USMCA.The American Soybean Association (ASA) has consistently requested a negotiated solution to the trade war with China and urged that exports lost to this key market be offset through new free trade agreements. ASA is hopeful that the Administration’s formal notice to Congress that it will enter trade negotiations with the European Union, Japan and the United Kingdom as soon as mid-January will make a settlement with China a plausible next step, bringing an end to the devastating tariff imposed on American soybeans.Concluding the USMCA and success with subsequent FTA negotiations with Japan, the EU and other countries would mean opportunities to potentially increase U.S. soy and livestock product exports to other promising markets, including the Philippines. ASA is encouraging the Administration to consider adding Vietnam and Indonesia to its list of potential negotiating targets. Knowing, however, that increased sales to these markets won’t offset lost U.S. export to China, ASA continues to emphasize the need to reach an agreement that rescinds the current tariffs and allows soy growers to begin to restore this vital, number one export market.last_img read more

first_imgIndian medical staff attend to a child admitted in the Encephalitis ward at The Baba Raghav Das Hospital in Gorakhpur, in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, on August 12, 2017.SANJAY KANOJIA/AFP/Getty Images [Representational Image]Nearly 14 children are reported to have died in Muzaffarpur district of Bihar due to suspected Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) and Japanese Encephalitis (JE).According to the reports, five children have died in the past 24 hours due to the infection and over a dozen, kids are being treated at Shri Krishna Memorial College Hospital (SKMCH) and Kejriwal Hospital after showing various symptoms of Encephalitis, including high fever and unconsciousness.At least 21 children were admitted at Shri Krishna Memorial College Hospital and 14 were admitted at Kejriwal Hospital on Friday. The Superintendent of SKMCH Sunil Shahi said that the hospital has received a total of 38 patients so far and most of them have glucose deficiency in their blood.District Civil Surgeon SP Singh said that two of the children who died last week has been confirmed of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome. The death of the rest is unknown as of now but the authorities are investigating the incident.Singh said that most of the patients suspected of the infection were brought to the hospital with high fever and Hypoglycemia (a condition caused by a very low level of blood sugar (glucose), the body’s main energy source).”All primary health centres in the district have been put on high alert. But the people need to be cautious about their children as well. Give them as much liquid as you can and keep them hydrated,” he added, reports PTI.Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) is a serious health problem in India. It can be identified by the starting of high fever and clinical neurological manifestation that includes mental confusion, disorientation, delirium or coma. The infection commonly affects children and young adults and can lead to considerable morbidity and mortality.According to the National Health Portal of India, Japanese Encephalitis Virus (JEV) is the major cause of AES in India (ranging from 5%-35%). Herpes simplex virus, Influenza A virus, West Nile virus, Chandipura virus, mumps, measles, dengue, Parvovirus B4, enteroviruses, Epstein-Barr virus and scrub typhus, S.pneumoniae are the other causes of AES in sporadic and outbreak form in India. Nipah virus, Zika virus are also found as causative agents for AES. The etiology in a large number of AES cases still remains unidentified.last_img read more

Ford Wants to Remove New Car Odors by Heating Up Vehicles

first_imgStay on target Aston Martin Will Build You Your Very Own Supervillain LairSony Crammed a 9-Inch Touchscreen Into a Single-DIN Car Stereo If you dislike the “new car smell,” you’re in luck: Ford filed a patent for an odor-eliminating process that uses heat to get rid of the leather-like aroma in new automobiles.Ford, which filed the “vehicle odor remediation” patent  in July, aims to appeal to its global customer base, including customers in China, who reportedly prefer to buy odor-free cars, reported the Detroit Free Press.According to a 2018 J.D. Power China Initial Quality Study, more than 10 percent of drivers in China complained about new car smells. Considering China has one of the largest car markets worldwide, Ford is taking note of what customers want when it comes to brand new automobiles.AdChoices广告Ford’s patent said that new car odors come from volatile organic compounds given off by vinyl, leather, plastic, and chemicals used in vehicle production. When new automobiles are exposed to high temperatures, that’s when the odors kick in.To eliminate new car smells, the patent said the car would need to park in the sun, slightly open windows, and have the engine, heater, and fan turned on. This process would allegedly involve semi-autonomous vehicles that can tell when to expel compounds, drive themselves to a sunny spot, and bake away the unpleasant smell.The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office or Ford haven’t provided updates on the odor-removal process yet, however it would be interesting to see how this high-tech innovation could reduce new car smells in the future.More on Autonomous Cars Become Brothels on Wheels?‘Flying Sports Car’ Could Be the Smallest in the WorldVolvo’s Cars and Semis Can Now Talk to Each Otherlast_img read more

Honduran gangs offer peace from prison

first_imgIn San Pedro Sula, the gangs run lucrative extortion rackets and drug-dealing networks, using their prison confines as fortified commander centers from which they can safely direct operations. Built for 700 inmates, the city’s lockup is a ruin of crumbling concrete-block walls and rusting concertina wire, packed with 2,500 prisoners.The gangs are locked in separate, more spacious cell blocks to keep them apart from each other and the rest of the prison population. Their wives and girlfriends come and go as they please, but guards only enter with the gangs’ permission — or not at all.On a recent morning, the gang leaders granted an audience to Emiliani and a visiting delegation from El Salvador, which included the priest and social worker who have led the peace negotiations there. A Washington Post reporter was allowed to tag along.They entered first into the 18th Street cell block and a skunky haze of marijuana smoke. Several dozen gang members lounged by a large flat-screen TV or ordered drinks at the tiki bar under a sign that read “Casino.”The setting resembled a fraternity house, only with elaborate murals of guns and gang lore, and teenage lookouts posted at every window, perched on wooden crates suspended from the ceiling.The gang leaders who received the delegation wouldn’t give their names. They ordered the music lowered and arranged plastic chairs in a circle for the visitors.“We’ve taken the first step, but the police have to stop killing us,” said the man with facial tattoos, one of which was the L.A. Dodgers’ logo. “We have our dignity, too.”Their appeal, in essence, was a peace offering to society at large, saying that the police persecution of their families had become unbearable and that they were willing to go straight. They had kids to worry about, they said.The 18th Street commanders never mention their rivals, and as the delegation moved to the MS-13 cell block at the opposite end of the prison complex, a gang leader who introduced himself as “Marco” said a truce with his enemies “may or may not happen.”The MS-13 wing had an elaborate carpentry shop, brand-new power tools and 60 hand-crafted bed frames that were stacked and varnished in a courtyard, ready for donation to a senior center as a gesture of good faith.“Right now, we’re trying to show society that we can contribute,” said Marco, a genial, middle-aged man with a slight paunch, who said he was serving a 15-year term for murder. “We are doing it with deeds, not just words.”Marco claimed to be the highest-ranking MS-13 leader in San Pedro Sula — an assertion backed by prison authorities — and offered his cellphone numbers and email address as a way to keep in touch.“I have all the technology I want in here,” he said with a laugh.In El Salvador, even as gang murders have plunged, other crimes have not, leaving many to doubt that members will give up their lethally enforced extortion schemes to make bed frames and baked goods. Few in Honduras said they thought the gangs would stop squeezing taxi drivers, shopkeepers and other businesses for the weekly “war tax” they exact.Then there are other reasons to take a hardened view: The gangs are thought to be less structured and regimented than in El Salvador, so a peace deal made in prison might not hold on the streets if other crime bosses defy it.And in El Salvador, the government’s involvement and quid-pro-quo approach to granting gang leaders better prison accommodations and other concessions has been crucial, observers say.Honduras’s government has offered tacit support for the church-led efforts with the gangs, but getting state resources for rehabilitation and reintegration will be difficult in a country where basic services are lacking.“This effort is not popular in Honduras. These gangs have committed horrible crimes and have left many with scarring memories,” said Blackwell, the OAS official.Raul Mijango, a former Salvadoran guerrilla who helped negotiate an end to his country’s civil war, said that like Marxist rebels then, the gangs see themselves as fighting for their survival in a country that has failed to provide them with basic security: a decent education, job opportunities and safe neighborhoods.“They’re really asking for the same thing — for the state to function,” Mijango said. “The question is whether society will be willing to give them a chance.”© 2013, The Washington Post Facebook Comments MS-13 members inside the San Pedro Sula Prison in Honduras with stacks of bed frames ready for donation to a local senior center. Washington Post photo by Nick Miroff No related posts.center_img SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras — The chihuahua, like its masters, seemed rather comfortable in prison.The dog scampered after a roach that crawled out from under the tiki bar, then calmly settled back into the lap of El Conejo (The Rabbit), a leader of the 18th Street gang.“We take responsibility for the mistakes we’ve made,” El Conejo said, stroking the chihuahua. “And like good people, we want to change.”Beside him, another high-ranking 18th Street member nodded, his forehead bannered in tattoos. “Violence just generates more violence,” he said.In the prisons of battle-scarred Honduras, the country with the highest per capita murder rate in the world, such talk is good cause for skepticism. But it might be the best hope for a reprieve.The 18th Street gang and its arch rival, Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, have taken small, suspicion-filled steps in recent weeks toward what church leaders and their backers at the Organization of American States are calling “a peace process,” careful to avoid the term “gang truce.”The goal, the peace-brokers say, is broader than a mere cease-fire between the region’s two most notorious transnational gangs, both of which have thousands of members in the United States. They say they are trying to halt the spiraling drug violence and criminality that have brought new depths of misery and renewed instability to Central America’s so-called Northern Triangle — Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.Although the gangs are not driven by political ideology, the negotiators have been drawing on conflict resolution tactics learned a generation ago, when the region’s civil wars triggered cycles of recrimination that were finally overcome at the bargaining table.Forging peace this time seems far tougher. But in El Salvador, where a social worker, a priest and OAS officials first bought the two gangs together 16 months ago, the effort has produced an extraordinary shift.According to government crime statistics, homicides in El Salvador have dropped more than 50 percent since the shot-callers in prison worked out a fragile accord and told their underlings to stand down.Now the challenge is to translate the model to Honduras, where the violence is worse, the drug trade is more lucrative and the government is weaker.Monsignor Romulo Emiliani, the Archbishop of San Pedro Sula, is pushing forward with the effort anyway. If he succeeds in Honduras, the armistice could extend to Guatemala and reach the gang’s franchises, or “clickas,” in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and other U.S. cities.U.S. law enforcement agencies are watching closely. “We’re aware of it, but we’re not getting intelligence one way or another as to whether it would have an effect,” said Ray Colgan, director of the Northern Virginia Regional Gang Task Force, where MS-13 is the largest criminal group. “We don’t have the levels of violence here that they have down there.”In Honduras, which recorded 85 murders per 100,000 residents last year, the gangs are just one party to the killings.The country’s north coast has become the prime smuggling route for Mexican and Colombian drug traffickers moving U.S.-bound cocaine. Bar fights and other petty disputes are often settled with bullets. Criminal impunity reigns. And attempts to purge dirty cops from the ranks of Honduras’s police force have stalled, with the United States temporarily suspending aid last month amid growing evidence that officers have carried out extrajudicial killings of gang members and others.The security crisis in Honduras has driven some, including OAS officials, to appeal directly to gang leaders to stem the violence, while cautioning that such a strategy carries obvious risks.For one, the would-be peace-makers inhabit an exceedingly violent, unpredictable world where leaders don’t tend to live long.On July 12, a day after meeting with OAS officials, El Conejo and a female companion were killed inside the 18th Street cell block, apparently from a grenade blast. Honduran authorities said the incident is under investigation, but initial reports indicate the explosion was an accident, not a targeted hit.“It is a process, and there will be good days and bad days,” said Adam Blackwell, the OAS security official and former Canadian diplomat who has given Archbishop Emiliani and the negotiations international backing.“It took four months in El Salvador to get the gang leaders into the same room together, and they were literally shaking with hate,” Blackwell said. “We haven’t been able to do that yet in Honduras.”Both 18th Street and MS-13 originated on the streets of Los Angeles, expanding into Central America when their members were deported.last_img read more

OTTAWA – A musical based on the childrens book T

first_img OTTAWA – A musical based on the children’s book “The Hockey Sweater,” a mosquito tale from DJ Kid Koala, and a multidisciplinary production about Inuit myths are among the projects being funded by The National Arts Centre.The organization has announced nine projects that will get $1.4 million from a new fund to support “bold and ambitious” work in music, theatre, dance and performing arts.They include “The Hockey Sweater: A Musical,” based on the classic short story by Roch Carrier and featuring eight young actors who sing, dance and skate their way through the show. It premiered last fall in Montreal and is being redeveloped for a broader audience.Meanwhile, Kid Koala’s stage project “The Storyville Mosquito” uses puppets, miniature sets, multiple cameras and screens to tell the story of a mosquito who leaves his small town to seek fame and fortune.And the production called “Unikkaaqtuat” blends circus arts, music, theatre, and video projection to highlight Inuit people, their traditions “and vision for the future.” It’s a collaboration between Les 7 doigts de la main, Artcirq and Taqqut Productions, with illustrations by artist Germaine Arnaktauyok.The arts centre says the money can be used to help fund workshops, residencies, expand creative teams and casts, and integrate new technology.The National Creation Fund’s artistic producer Heather Moore says it’s meant to give new work the time and resources it needs to reach “its potential, resonate with audiences, and be presented widely beyond its premiere.”Artcirq’s co-artistic directors Terry Uyarak and Guillaume Saladin say they are excited by the financial support.“Here at Artcirq, we have been dreaming for a very long time about a show that is at the same level as shows down south. And now, we are coming!” the duo said in a release issued Thursday.The fund plans to invest up to $3 million in 15 to 20 projects a year. The next round of recipients will be announced in the fall.Other projects announced Thursday include:-“Eve 2050”: a triptych directed by Isabelle Van Grimde that combines dance and digital technologies;-“The Full Light of Day”: a live film/theatre experiment with a script by award-winning artist Daniel Brooks;-“Minowin”: a dance work directed and choreographed by Margaret Grenier, that integrates narrative, motion, song, performance and multi-media design;-“Le reste vous le connaissez par le cinema”: Christian Lapointe’s translation of Martin Crimp’s play, “The Rest Will Be Familiar to You from the Cinema,” itself a re-working of Euripides’ “The Phoenician Women;”-“Treemonisha”: Ragtime composer Scott Joplin’s opera is presented by Volcano Theatre, in association with the Moveable Beast Collective, with a new libretto, orchestration and arrangement that extend themes of feminism and politics;-“who we are in the dark”: contemporary dance choreographed by acclaimed dance artist Peggy Baker, with seven dancers and live music performed by Arcade Fire’s Sarah Neufeld and Jeremy Gara.

EU Commission lists excessive imbalances in Cyprus economy

first_imgCyprus faces ‘excessive’ budgetary imbalances, the European Commission said on Wednesday in its winter package report approved by the College of Commissioners and presented in Brussels by Vice-President Valdis Dobrobowski, Commissioner Moscovici and the Commissioner Tysen.In the category of countries with “excessive imbalances”, only three countries were ranked this year: Greece, Cyprus and Italy. Similarly, there was a softer ranking of countries with just “imbalances” in which Bulgaria, Germany, France, Croatia, Spain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Romania and Sweden are included.“Cyprus is experiencing excessive imbalances,” said the report. “A very high share of non-performing loans burdens the financial sector and high stock of private, public, and external debt hangs on the economy, in a context of still relatively high, even though declining, unemployment and weak potential growth.”The commission warned that “the current account deficit is significantly negative, even taking into account the presence of special purpose entities, reflecting strong domestic demand as well as the negative saving among households, and is not adequate to guarantee a sustainable adjustment of the large stock of net external liabilities” and states that “deleveraging of private sector debt is ongoing but only slowly. New lending to the private sector remains limited.”Meanwhile, it added, the transfer of a significant portfolio of non-performing loans from the Cyprus Co-operative Bank to the public sector in the context of the bank`s sale and wind-down reduced significantly the share of non-performing loans in the banking system. However, “non-performing loans remain high for both households and corporations.”“The government support in the sale of the Cyprus Co-operative Bank had a one-off increasing impact on public debt in 2018,” it added.Looking ahead, it said the high public debt was expected to be on a declining path on the back of a continued strong fiscal performance. Compared to last year, the reform momentum had been stepped up especially on the front of measures to address the vulnerabilities from non-performing loans, but more progress was needed on structural reforms to increase the growth potential.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityReassurance for your refugeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img
