first_imgNew Delhi: Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) chief Ram Vilas Paswan Friday took charge as the Food and Consumer Affairs Ministry for the second term in the Modi 2.0 government, saying his ministry is all ready with 100 days plan for implementation. Minister of State for Food and Consumer Affairs Danve Dadarao Raosaheb, BJP MP from Madhya Pradesh, also assumed his office along with Paswan here. Creation of buffer stock of 16 lakh tonnes of pulses and 50,000 tonnes of onion, exempting stock holding limits on contract farmers, finalising e-commerce guidelines, upgradation of consumer courts and BIS labs are some of the targets set for implementation in the next 100 days.

Showering praise on Modi for winning a second term with a huge mandate, the LJP chief said, “Under his leadership, India will be a powerful nation in the world.” Paswan (72 year), the president of LJP which is a key NDA ally in Bihar, was re-inducted in the Narendra Modi’s council of ministers on Thursday. “I feel proud our prime minister is the best PM in the world. The nation is proud of Narendra Modiji. There is no competitor to Modi and he will be the number one leader in the world by end of five years of the government,” he added.

Paswan, a prominent dalit face in the coalition government, also said, “The cabinet has been formed in a balanced way and the responsibility has been given to those who are familiar with the departments.” Modi had asked to prepare 100 days plan before the Lok Sabha elections. “We are ready with the plan for implementation,” he added. “The Bureau of Indian Standards bill was passed in the previous regime. The Consumer Protection bill was held back in Rajya Sabha due to technical reasons. I hope it will be passed soon,” he said outlining the 100 days plan. Paswan is not an MP but he is expected to be sent to the Rajya Sabha by the NDA coalition. He was promised a Rajya Sabha seat by alliance partner BJP during seat-sharing talks before the Lok Sabha elections. The law requires a Union minister to be elected to either House of Parliament within six months of assuming office. A seasoned politician, Paswan had so far won ten Lok Sabha elections and was in the Council of Ministers under six prime ministers leading governments of a variety of coalitions, both led by BJP and Congress.last_img read more

Harper Atleo signed secret agreement on FN education bill document

first_imgBy Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsPrime Minister Stephen Harper and former Assembly of First Nations national chief Shawn Atleo came to a secret agreement outlining the broad framework and name of the now shelved First Nation education bill months before it was tabled in Parliament, according to a document filed in Federal Court.The document, signed by Harper, Atleo, Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt and former Clerk of the Privy Council Wayne Wouters was filed in court by federal Justice Canada lawyers Wednesday.The undated four-page document was titled “Bill C/S-X, First Nation Control of First Nations Education Act.” The document lists the sections of the new education bill and itemizes which parts would differ from a previous incarnation rejected by First Nation chiefs in the fall of 2013. The document was signed on Feb. 3, APTN National News has learned, over two months before a bill under the same name was tabled in the House of Commons on April 10.“This document identifies the substantive amendments to the Oct. 2013 draft of the First Nations education legislative proposal,” states the document. “This does not preclude minor adjustments or tone.”The document was signed after a meeting between Harper, Valcourt and Atleo at the request of Wouters who wanted the signatures for the historical record. The Monday meeting followed a contentious phone conversation on education between Harper and Atleo held the previous Friday, Jan. 31.DocumentDownload (PDF, Unknown)The emergence of the document casts Harper and Atleo’s Feb. 7 press conference on the Blood Tribe reserve in a new light. Harper and Atleo stepped onto the stage and announced they had reached a “historic agreement” on education knowing they had a signed document in their back pocket outlining what the new bill would eventually look like.Atleo’s own executive however, was completely in the dark about the details on the day of that announcement. The AFN regional chiefs for Quebec and Ontario, Ghislain Picard and Stan Beardy, e-mailed Atleo that day saying they wouldn’t attend the announcement because of the lack of details.The document also explains Valcourt’s office persistent talking-point use of the claim it had an agreement with the AFN on education. APTN National News has without success repeatedly asked Valcourt’s office for proof of an agreement.In reality, however, the agreement was only with Atleo and not the AFN. Atleo never told chiefs about the document or that he knew the outline of the education bill the Harper government planned to table.Nova Scotia AFN regional Chief Morley Googoo, who held the education portfolio on the chiefs executive, told APTN National News Thursday he didn’t know the document existed.“I didn’t know about it, this is the first time I hear about it now,” said Googoo.Justice Canada lawyers handling a court challenge of the education bill launched by the Assembly of First Nations of Quebec and Labrador (AFNQL) also didn’t know the document existed. In its Federal Court filing, the AFNQL requested Ottawa turn over any documents mentioning an education agreement between the Harper government and the AFN. Justice Canada initially responded saying none existed. Then, on Wednesday, Eric Gingras, senior counsel for Justice Canada, filed the document.The First Nation Control of First Nation Education Act now sits in limbo, along with the $1.9 billion in new funding tied to the proposed bill. AFN-member chiefs voted to reject the Act arguing Ottawa failed to consult them adequately on the bill and that it threatened to undermine advances made in education by some First Nation communities.Atleo resigned from his position on May 2 saying he had become a lightning rod on the education debate that had been raging since the Feb. 7 press conference.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

SC asks EC to pass order on plea to prepone poll timing

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court asked the Election Commission on Thursday to pass “necessary orders” on a representation seeking advancing of the voting time to 5 AM from 7 AM for the remaining phases of the Lok Sabha polls due to heat wave conditions and onset of the holy month of Ramzan.A plea in this regard was mentioned for urgent hearing before a bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi. The bench, also comprising justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna, took the petition on board and said, “The Election Commission of India is directed to pass necessary orders. The writ petition is disposed of in the above terms.” Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghThe petition, filed by advocates Mohammad Nizamuddin Pasha and Asad Hayat, sought advancement of polling hours by two to two-and-a half hours, for voting to commence from 4.30 or 5 AM instead of 7 AM, in the remaining phases. “The petitioners pray for a direction to the Election Commission of India to extend the polling hours during the fifth, sixth and seventh phases of the ongoing general elections, 2019 on May 6, May 12 and May 19, respectively, by 2-2.5 hours so as to commence at 4:30/5 AM (instead of the notified time of 7 AM) on account of the unprecedented heat waves prevailing in several parts of the country and the onset of the holy month of Ramzan,” the plea said. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadThe plea said that Ramzan, the holy month of fasting for Muslims, is likely to commence from May 6, the day of fifth phase of voting in the Lok Sabha elections. It said that during Ramzan, Muslims keep fast and do not consume food or water from one and a half hours before dawn till dusk every day. The petitioners said they had given a representation to the Election Commission on Monday last in this regard, but the poll panel has not responded to it. “On April 29, a representation was made to the respondent (EC) on this behalf bringing the aforesaid facts to its notice and requesting it to extend the polling hours in the fifth, sixth and seventh phases of the general elections 2019 so as to commence at 4.30 or 5 am instead of 7 am but no response has been received so far,” the plea said. It also said that Indian Meteorological Department has issued warnings indicating severe heat wave conditions over the next few days, with temperatures rising up to five degree celsius than normal in poll bound areas of Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, Delhi, Chandigarh, Jharkhand, Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh. The plea said that the harsh weather conditions would make it difficult for Muslims to go out and vote. “In the intense heat, it will be very difficult for Muslim voters to queue up at the poling booths during the day in the intense heat to exercise their franchise. During Ramzan, most practising Muslims stay up for an early morning meal and sleep after the morning prayer,” it said. “Thereafter, they avoid going out in the heat to the extent possible to avoid thirst, dehydration and the possibility of a heatstroke. Therefore, in the present weather conditions, a lot of Muslim will be unable to go out to exercise their franchise,” the plea said.last_img read more

Scotland Yard receives fresh sexual assault allegation against Harvey Weinstein

Weinstein has been charged in New York with sexually assaulting three women.On Monday, the New York County District Attorney, Cyrus Vance Jr, announced a New York Supreme Court hearing originally set to take place later this week has now been pushed back to November 8.Investigators in Los Angeles are also looking into allegations against the 66-year-old. Police in the UK first confirmed they had opened an investigation into Weinstein in October last year after Merseyside Police received an allegation of sexual assault in the London area in the 1980s, and referred it to Scotland Yard.British actress Lysette Anthony said she had told the Metropolitan Police she was attacked by Weinstein in her London home in the late 1980s. On October 31 last year, an alleged eighth victim told UK police she had been assaulted by Weinstein in Ireland. The allegation has been passed on to Irish police. British police investigating Harvey Weinstein have received a further allegation of sexual assault after an 11th woman came forward.Scotland Yard said the latest allegation was received on August 16 after a woman alleged she was assaulted at an “unknown location in the early 1990s”.A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police added: “There has been no arrest at this stage or interviews under caution.”(We) can confirm that officers involved in this investigation travelled to the United States in June as part of their inquiries. We are not prepared to discuss further.”Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.Scotland Yard has not named Weinstein, but confirmed officers from the Met’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Command are investigating allegations of sexual assault under Operation Kaguyak.The allegation means police are now probing 16 alleged assaults from 11 women.

ABB 800xA control system at Dannemora processing plant

first_imgABB recently started commissioning a System 800xA control system at Dannemora’s new iron ore sorting plant in east central Sweden. Crude ore production for commercial use started at the beginning of April; ABB has delivered a complete control system that is the heart of the sorting plant, which is currently under commissioning while the plant is in production. The control system was designed in close cooperation with the customer and the system’s interfaces, displays and functions were fine-tuned in cooperation with the operators that will use it.The “user friendly and reliable 800xA control system” will give the operators a detailed process overview while minimising required manual operations. The entire sorting plant is operated by four persons per shift, with one person from ABB. During commissioning, ABB is using a broadband connection to provide speedy, expert support, eliminating travelling time and expense. This remote access capability allowed ABB to download a new program and commission the system from 500 km away.“During the commissioning, we will fine tune the control system to achieve maximum output. This is done in close cooperation with Dannemora and its mechanical suppliers”, said Lars Henriksson, Project Manager at ABB’s Mining and Minerals unit in Sweden. The new sorting plant is projected to have an annual production of 2.0 Mt of finished products, in the proportion of 60% lump ore and 40% fines. This will require that about 3.3 Mt of crude ore be processed each year. Production at the sorting plant will grow in phases, from today’s start of production at an annual rate of 0.5 Mt to full production of 1.5 Mt/y. The company expects to reach full production when the hoisting system, also delivered by ABB, is installed in March 2013. Crude ore will then be transported by the new hoist from about 600 m underground up to the head frame on ground level and from there via the conveyor belt into the sorting plant.In addition to the mine hoisting system and the sorting plant automation system, ABB signed a five year Full Service contract with Dannemora Magnetit, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dannemora Mineral AB, in February this year. Under this contract, ABB has overall responsibility for process plant maintenance. “We are proud to be one of the major suppliers to Dannemora Minerals. We will do our utmost to help meet Dannemora Minerals’ demands for an overall optimized plant so that Dannemora can resume operation of the iron ore mine as planned”, said Andreas Malmport, head of ABB’s Mining and Minerals unit in Sweden.last_img read more

Sony Online Entertainment rumored to be closing studios tomorrow

first_imgThere is a rumor making the rounds at the moment that tomorrow Sony Online Entertainment is set to close a number of studios resulting in major job losses.The rumor was first posted by George Broussard of 3D Realms. His tweet on the matter can be seen below:Sony Online Entertainment is Sony’s online gaming arm and runs such games as Free Realms, Everquest, Star Wars Galaxies, and most recently DC Universe Online.The specific studios under SOE’s wing thought to be affected are Seattle, Tuscon, Arizona, and Denver. Austin is also thought to be having its staff number cut in half. Overall it is expected a third of all SOE staff will be looking for new employment after the weekend.We have to make it clear that for the moment this is just a rumor, and one we hope turns out to be untrue. Saying that, there’s going to be a lot of talented staff working at SOE, most of which won’t have a problem finding a new job next week.via ShopTo.net BlogMatthew’s OpinionI hope this isn’t true, but if it is then it points to the ongoing problems online games have of managing to turn a profit. World of Warcraft continues to dominate the MMO market, but while competing games struggle to find an audience, SOE had a bit more security than most because it offered a number of different games both free and paid for. Even that may not be enough to make online viable, though.While I’m sure the big name titles like Everquest and Star Wars Galaxies will survive, a large cut in staff would put titles in development in jeopardy. The only upcoming game SOE has listed for PC is The Agency. If this rumor is true, and a third of a staff go, will that game also get canceled?last_img read more

Obesity solutions proposed

first_imgA federal parliamentary inquiry into obesity headed by MP Steve Georganas has recommended the public funding of bariatric surgery to help people who are morbidly obese. This is one of several recommendations to the Australian government in its recent report, Weighing It Up. In response to Australia’s obesity crisis, the House of Representative’s Standing Committee on Health and Ageing has called for better urban design of our cities and suburbs to encourage people to be active, and a greater focus on teaching children the importance of healthy eating and exercise. Amongst other recommendations, it has suggested the introduction of tax incentives such as the use of subsidies to make healthy food cheaper, allowing people to claim the cost of weight-loss programs through Medicare and a tax rebate on gym membership to encourage exercise.However, not all health experts approve of the report’s recommendation to allow the food industry to continue self-regulating television advertising. “We have had self-regulation for decades while Australians’ waistlines continue to expand. Our children should be protected from the unfettered bombardment of junk food advertising in their everyday life,” said Jane Martin, senior policy advisor of the Obesity Policy Coalition (which includes VicHealth and Cancer Council Victoria). Georganas, speaking to Neos Kosmos English Edition (NKEE), continued to defend the self-regulation recommendation, indicating that the industry would be given a chance and if self-regulation did not decrease advertisements directed at children, that the committee would support the Federal Government considering more stringent regulations.“A junk food (advertisement) ban has too many problems, not the least of which defining junk food in the first place,” he said. “If you start banning McDonald’s then why not ban biscuits because they have lots of sugars- where do you stop? One particular advertising that we can regulate is nutritional panels and we have asked for food labelling that is more informative.”Mother of three, Christine Carra believes that it is up to parents to educate their children, not the government. “You can’t isolate them from it. They are going to come across junk food in all aspects of their life so it is important that they are taught how to do deal with it,” she said.Dietician Antigone Kouris, although believes that the recommendations should have included the government regulation of high energy, nutrient poor food advertisements directed at children, is pleased with the health rebate recommendations of the committee.“It is a good idea to put obesity on Medicare as a chronic condition- this will enable dieticians to help people to lose weight under a plan subsidised by the government” said Ms Kouris to NKEE. Whilst the report suggested the use of subsidies for healthy food, it did not recommend a tax on junk food, which had been strongly backed by health experts at the 2020 Summit.“In an ideal world a tax would be a good idea. I don’t know why they are not backing it- it could be due to industry pressure,” added Ms Kouris. But Ms Carra said that she did not think a tax would make much of a difference. “I think people would still buy junk food if they could,” she said.A spokesperson for Health Minister Nicola Roxon said the Government would consider the report along with the recommendations of the Government’s Preventative Health Taskforce to be reported in the coming weeks.

International Monetary Fund says concession expirations an opportunity for Macau to reduce

first_img Strong VIP growth sees Okada Manila GGR climb 72% in August Lack of premium mass strategy begs questions of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace launch: analysts Load More New Chief Executive vows to protect Macau’s gaming and tourism industry from harm More specifically, the IMF said that, “Diversification policies should be guided by careful study of Macau SAR’s comparative advantage.“With all six gaming concessions expiring in 2020 and 2022, the authorities have the opportunity to further advance their growth strategy and should craft the new regulations with stronger incentives for operators to expand non-VIP tourism,” it said.“In addition, to accommodate the higher number of tourists under a mass-market and non-gaming model, infrastructure plans should advance in order to ease supply-side bottlenecks. Some of these areas are expanded entertainment, convention and exhibition options, hotels and retail, including via integrated resorts and family-oriented facilities.”The IMF also called for an “upgraded regulatory framework” surrounding Macau’s junket industry, having previously assessed the SAR’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Terrorism Financing (CTF) in 2016.“The assessment report recognized Macau SAR’s progress in enhancing AML/CFT framework, including on preventive measures and supervision of the gaming sector, while noting the need for more improvements,” it said.“Since the evaluation, Macau SAR has intensified efforts to limit the number of junket promoters, which could be supported by an upgraded regulatory framework to promote robust AML/CFT controls by junket promoters.” RelatedPosts The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has called on Macau’s government to use the expiration of the SAR’s six gaming concessions in the next three years to strengthen regulations promoting non-VIP tourism while improving basic tourism infrastructure.In its Mission Concluding Statement following a recent visit to Macau, published on Monday, the IMF noted the city’s strong fiscal position on the back of its gaming industry but called for higher public investment and social spending to foster inclusion and a medium to long-term fiscal framework to ensure “judicious and efficient use of gaming-dependent fiscal resources”.last_img read more

Tomatoes were Considered Sinful – Until the Salem Tomato Trial of 1820

first_imgThe most controversial thing about a tomato today is whether it’s a vegetable or a fruit. Yet things weren’t always like that. As recently as 200 years ago tomatoes were associated not only with sin, but also an obstacle to salvation. While opinion varies on how exactly humankind encountered the juicy mealtime staple, it’s believed the relationship originated in historic Mesoamerica. The word tomato “comes from the Uto-Aztecan Nahuatl word, ‘tomatl,’ which means ‘the swelling fruit’” according to an article on the History Channel website.It was an ingredient for peoples such as the Aztecs, but the idea of it being fit for consumption by European and other cultures took some time to catch on.Fresh organic cherry tomatoes in a wooden trayIn fact you were more likely to see the tomato as part of an ornamental display rather than a tasty treat. Look but don’t touch. But why was this? The answer lies partly in the eating habits of rich Europeans.At first, while they believed the tomato to be edible, it was grown only to enjoy its beauty as a garden plant. A 2013 piece for Smithsonian.com wrote, “In the early 16th century, Spanish conquistadors returning from expeditions in Mexico and other parts of Mesoamerica were thought to have first introduced the seeds to southern Europe. Some researchers credit Cortez with bringing the seeds to Europe in 1519 for ornamental purposes.”Solanum lycopersicum var. lycopersicum. Sheet from the oldest tomato collection of Europe, 1542–1544. Naturalis Leiden.By the late 1700s that had radically changed — people feared to eat tomatoes as the fruit had gained a reputation as being poisonous. The unusual culprit was actually tableware. It turned out the pewter plates of the wealthy contained significantly high lead content. The acid in tomatoes brought out this poison and people succumbed.However no-one realized the cause was a chemical one, and the humble tomato got the blame — it was nicknamed “the poison apple” and avoided at all cost.Spaghetti, garlic, basil and tomatoes on a cutting boardThe website Tomato And Health mentioned that “Up until the end of the eighteenth century, physicians warned against eating tomatoes, fearing they caused not only appendicitis but also stomach cancer from tomato skins adhering to the lining of the stomach.”So the salad’s friend got the worst of raps. And it was only the latest installment of a long-running objection to the red fruit. The 14th century doctor and naturalist Pietro Andrea Mattioli went so far as to categorize it not only as a source of poison but also sinfulness. He believed the tomato to be a nightshade, “a poisonous family of Solanaceae plants that contain toxins called tropane alkaloids” (from Smithsonian.com).Pietro Andrea MattioliThe sin element came from Mattioli’s other finding — that the tomato was a mandrake: “The mandrake has a history that dates back to the Old Testament; it is referenced twice as the Hebrew word dudaim, which roughly translates to “love apple.” (In Genesis, the mandrake is used as a love potion).”From there the tomato went down in history as an aphrodisiac.The ‘apple of love’The 1597 book Herball, written by barber-surgeon John Gerard, further trashed the tomato’s reputation through sheer sloppiness of research.Smithsonian.com talked to Andrew F. Smith, author of The Tomato In America: Early History, Culture and Cookery (1994) who said “most of the information (which was inaccurate to begin with) was plagiarized by Gerard… who misspelled words like Lycoperticum in the collection’s rushed final product.”John GerardThe History Channel stated Gerard’s belief that tomatoes “contained low levels of the toxic chemical tomatine. Tomatoes do, in fact, contain low levels of this glycoalkaloid with fungicidal properties, but the levels are so low as not to be dangerous.”Something had to happen to end the madness… and it did, in Salem, New Jersey, in 1820. A Colonel named Robert Gibbon Johnson was determined to break the cycle of mistrust over the notorious foodstuff. Hence began the so-called Salem Tomato Trial.Tomato And Health wrote, he “had brought the tomato home from abroad in 1808. He had been offering a prize yearly for the largest fruit grown, but the general public considered the tomato an ornamental plant rather than one for food.”Robert Gibbon JohnsonWith no-one biting, so to speak, he opted to take a basket of tomatoes and stand in front of the Salem courthouse. In front of a horrified public he proceeded to munch his way through the “deadly” bounty to prove the point and drive it home.Read another story from us: Earliest Brewery in Britain Discovered – And it’s Very, Very OldThose expecting a violently entertaining death were disappointed. Colonel Johnson lived to tell the tale, and New Jersey residents welcomed the tomato to their plates. From then on the tomato became trusted and more widely accepted in American households. It took an act of theatricality to get the message across, but thanks to his dramatic effort the tomato was finally redeemed in the eyes of hungry Americans.last_img read more

first_img Cathy Burns, CEO of the Produce Marketing Association (PMA), was recently in South America for PMA Fresh Connections: Chile, which she opened with her State of the Industry address. FreshFruitPortal.com later caught up with her to hear more about new retail trends, the evolution of consumer marketing campaigns, the growth of Chilean and Peruvian fruit exports, and developments in the rapidly growing Chinese market.FFP: A large part of the PMA’s work is focused on new ways that we can increase fruit and vegetable consumption – what advice would you give to fruit and vegetable growers and exporters in South American countries looking to expand in mature import markets like the U.S. and boost sales?CB: I would recommend that growers and exporters focus their strategies on truly understanding the needs of the buying community, which are ultimately dictated by shopper preferences. We heard from buyers during PMA Fresh Connections: Chile that opportunities remain for shippers to grow their market share as long as they deliver product that meets the quality, timeliness, and safety specifications of their customers. By meeting consumers’ desires for fresh, flavorful fruits and vegetables that consistently delight their senses, our industry will be able to create preference and stimulate demand that will help to increase fresh produce consumption.FFP: What are some of the most interesting changes that you have seen in the Chilean and South American fruit and vegetable industry over the last few years?CB: In Chile, there has been an important increase in production, reaching 2,7 million tons in the last season (18,57% increase in the last 3 seasons). Today Chile is the 4th largest fruit exporter worldwide and #1 in the Southern Hemisphere. Asia is the destination market with the biggest increase for Chilean exports (44,1% growth in the last 3 years) and within Asia the major growth is in cherries with approximately 90% of the production going to China. While the US and Europe continue to be important markets for Chilean fruit, every year the percentage of their crops going to Asia increases.Other notable change in Latin America has been the rise of Peru as an important fruit exporter. This country has done an admirable job of opening new markets around the globe, increasing the number of products admissible to existing markets and greatly increasing their production of many commodities such as avocados, blueberries, citrus and more.FFP: Chilean fruit exporters have faced challenges maintaining their market share in some areas over recent years –  with greater competition from other supplying regions and a slow adoption of newer varieties for some key fruits like apples and grapes. How do you see Chile’s future in the U.S. market?CB: I believe Chile has a bright future in supplying fruit to the United States. The Fresh Connections audience heard from one U.S. buyer that the number one strategy to increase U.S. market share is to continue to invest in new fruit variety development. She cited Cotton Candy grapes as an example of a product she can simply not get enough of for her customers.FFP: What are some of the biggest trends in produce retailing that you have seen over the last decade, and how do these changes affect foreign growers and exporters?CB: A number of trends come to mind, one of which has been the growth in organic fresh produce. Overall, in the U.S., organic product sales now account for more than $21 billion. Much of this growth is being driven by Millennial and Generation X consumers, with Gen Z and Boomers following closely behind. Nielsen found that in the U.S. last year, organic pre-packaged salads saw an increase in sales of 5.7%, with organic apples growing +6.8% and organic carrots up +2.8%.Another global trend is the increasing popularity and consumer adoption of plant-based foods. It is estimated that sales in plant-based foods will increase to 5 billion dollar by 2020. The reasons for the growth in this market segment is based on, among other reasons, consumer approaches to sustainable eating habits, as well as nutritional and dietary concerns. The demand for plant-based foods provides chefs, food scientists, and technologist, with opportunities to design exciting menu options, including vegetable steaks, burgers and even cauliflower pizza. As with organics, studies show the growth here is mainly driven by Millennials who are willing to spend more money on food that aligns with their lifestyles and beliefs.FFP: How do you feel consumer marketing campaigns for produce are evolving or should evolve in order to keep customers engaged? NZ: Zespri in nationwide sales trials of red kiwif … Peru’s blueberry export volume to increase 60% ove … You might also be interested in February 08 , 2019 center_img CB: Today’s shoppers are more connected than ever, particularly through social media, and the food industry as a whole is becoming more adept at engagement. Even from an association perspective, we’ve found more and more attendees and participants are sharing what they are seeing and learning on social media from the various programs we produce each year.As I mentioned in Chile, food is an integral part of the cultural currency on social, and gives our industry a direct connection to the shoppers who consume our products. More and more produce marketers are leveraging the opportunities on platforms like Instagram to build and strengthen those direct connections. Not only does it give brands access to those shoppers, it also gives them control over their story. And that’s an area where the produce and floral industry could expand upon through the use of social media, particularly videos: telling the stories of their products, how and by whom they were grown, the faces and family behind the food.On Facebook, food is the number-one consumed video. It’s been found that viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it on video, compared to 10% when reading it. This presents a wide range of opportunities for our industry to grow.To reach consumers, businesses should strive to offer interactive experiences – whether through in-person engagement or via technologies like augmented reality. They should also consider pairing cultural trends with marketing opportunities that make sense for consumers.This idea of connecting our industry with cultural trends is a key part of PMA’s plans in the year ahead. We will be part of the education program at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas, in March, where we’ll help shape cultural conversations and influences by sharing the incredible work our industry does every day with a global audience.Over the next few months and years you will see that PMA and our industry is not only better represented in those conversations, but ultimately, leading them — and not only within our industry, but wherever important conversations about the world’s food supply are taking place.FFP: You have spoken about the growth of the e-commerce sector around the world – what do you see as the biggest opportunities this growth is opening up for the global produce industry?CB: Growth in e-commerce worldwide presents opportunities for our industry to reach more consumers; however, the biggest challenge is ensuring that the fruits and vegetables purchased online arrive in at the consumers’ door with the utmost quality and care. Studies have shown that disappointment with the freshness and quality of produce bought online is the biggest barrier to future online purchases. That said, the supply chain continues to invest in new technologies to monitor and control quality issues to ensure consumers have a good experience with the produce they have bought (either online or in-store).FFP: What do you see as the biggest trends related to fruit and vegetable marketing in the Chinese market? What lessons could other countries take from China in terms of marketing produce?CB: Online retail in China continues to grow significantly, for both global imports and domestic food items. Mobile e-commerce currently accounts for 51 percent of all online sales in China.Chinese consumers tend to spend more on higher-priced products and prefer brands that deliver safe, reliable, quality foods. E-commerce gives brands easier access to consumers without the usual barriers of distribution challenges. This also allows smaller brands to find uniqueness of their themselves on equal footing with large brands.Storytelling in marketing efforts is one way to reach young Chinese consumers, who make their choices based on an array of information. It is critical for brands to get their message across to consumers, such as creative stories about brand history, the uniqueness of their products, and even the brand’s Chinese name and logo design. In addition, social media engagement with consumers, such as WeChat campaigns and live broadcasting with key opinion leaders, have become more popular in China – with many audiences watching theseevents from their mobile devices.FFP: What do you think are the biggest opportunities for the global produce industry from the growth of Asian markets like China? CB: China’s economic growth and growing middle class have made it a very attractive market for countries around the world.  As this development continues to the second and third-tier cities in China, the market potential increases. But China is not the only game in town. The 11 countries of Southeast Asia represent 622 million consumers, with an expanding middle class. PMA is currently pulling together research on these markets to share with members.

Review If youre not a superfan Hellboy is hel

first_imgReview: If you’re not a superfan, ‘Hellboy’ is hell, boy Hellboy is back and he’s got a dirty mouth and a man bun.The third film in the comic adaptation franchise has a new director, a new writer and a new look — led by a swashbuckling hellion who uses expletives and wears one of the most ridiculed hair styles in decades.“Hellboy ” is a reboot of artist and writer Mike Mignola’s fantasy world that rather rudely brushes aside the first two films as if they never existed. It’s like your new girlfriend blithely tossing out all the accumulated stuff in your medicine cabinet. It even ignores in its title that we’ve already had a “Hellboy.”Out is director Guillermo del Toro, a monster maker of epic proportions. Out is the original Hellboy, Ron Perlman. Out is the PG-13 rating. Now we’ve got an edgier, R-rated brightly red hero in a film that can best be described as tedious.This “Hellboy” stars the always likeable David Harbour of “Stranger Things” in a film even his charm can’t save. It’s really series of violent vignettes strung together, getting more and more outlandish and introducing characters at such a blistering pace that you just want it to stop already.Casual fans or the uninitiated are in trouble right from the beginning. Andrew Cosby’s screenplay doesn’t unspool a coherent story so much as violently shoehorn in diverse elements from the comics, overstuffing every scene and only then trying to explain why it’s been included. Director Neil Marshall leaves anyone not familiar with this world grasping and gasping. Scenes seem to just end abruptly, as if Marshall was the one trapped in story panels. A fight sequence with three giants is really the only astonishingly realized bit in the whole film. (It looks like a different set of filmmakers made it).What you need to know is that Hellboy is a devil who ends up working for the good guys, the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defence. (These civil servants aren’t too good at their job, by the way: They find out that one of their enemies is causing chaos on the streets outside — from watching Sky News.)Hellboy is basically a monster who hunts monsters, rejecting his DNA by cutting off his horns and stalking around in a ratty raincoat with no shirt. He deals with sorcery and ancient curses, utters strip club jokes, hears standard comic book lines — “Revenge is the only sustenance I require” — and has a hand in gore, beheadings, eyes gouged out and deep ugliness.The movie starts in 517 AD, then goes to modern-day Mexico, Colorado, London, the English countryside and Siberia. The soundtrack is a bro-fest that includes entries by Mötley Crüe, Alice Cooper and the songs seem like they were chosen by junior high kids being a little too on the nose, like “The Devil You Know” by X Ambassadors and “Beat the Devil’s Tattoo” by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club .We meet the ancient Russian witch Baba Yaga, the evil, Liverpool-accented porcine monster Gruagach (Stephen Graham), Hellboy’s adoptive father (Ian McShane), the Queen of Blood (Milla Jovovich), the wizard Merlin and King Arthur (no, seriously), a young cool woman with powers named Alice (Sasha Lane), a cool older sorceress (Sophie Okonedo) and a fellow agent-monster played by Daniel Dae Kim with a pretty terrible British accent.So underwhelming was this film that a recent screening in New York only sparked polite applause after it was finally over. And that was the red carpet premiere with all the cast in attendance. So even having Hellboy in the audience couldn’t whip up much enthusiasm for “Hellboy.”Harbour himself is fine, channeling the blue-collar, resigned here-we-go-again ethos of Hellboy. But his lines seem to fall flat. “Let’s eat some barbeque!” he declares as he attacks the pig monster. It’s sort of funny but somehow in this muddle of a film, it doesn’t land. It’s a pity because underneath all the silliness, there’s a rich vein the film seems to try to mine — whether what you are born determines who you become.“There has to be a world where monsters don’t have to hide in the shadows,” the Queen of Blood says to Hellboy, tempting him to join her side. This makes Hellboy pause, since he’s basically slaughtering his brothers and sisters. “You made me a goddamn weapon,” he screams at dad.That discussion raises a question about the film itself: Maybe the reason it staggers so poorly is because its DNA is all wrong. If the first two films lacked a certain verve and the third is a violent muddle, maybe making “Hellboy” movies is as cursed as its hero.“Hellboy,” a Lionsgate release, is rated R for “strong bloody violence and gore throughout, and language.” Running time: 120 minutes. One stars out of four.___MPAA definition of R: Restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.___Mark Kennedy is at http://twitter.com/KennedyTwitsMark Kennedy, The Associated Press AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Mark Kennedy, The Associated Press Posted Apr 10, 2019 3:00 pm PDT This image released by Lionsgate shows Milla Jovovich in a scene from “Hellboy.” (Mark Rogers/Lionsgate via AP) last_img read more
