PAKISTANI MANGO PROJECT SHOWS HOW PATIENCE AND NEGOTIATION CAN ACHIEVE INROADS IN THE USA - PAKISTAN RELATIONSHIP...

EID seems to have come a month early for Pakistani-Americans. The Pakistani mango has finally made its way to the US, the result of an effort that was reportedly launched in 2006 and involved lengthy negotiations with American authorities and the development of the necessary pest-control expertise and facilities here at home.


 A small number of Pakistani growers and packers are now able to meet America`s certification requirements for fruit imports, and the first shipment of chaunsas landed last week in Chicago, where a mango-themed event was held to mark the occasion. 


And in true Pakistani style, boxes of mangoes have been sent around — in this case to the White House, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, various members of Congress and other prominent Americans.



Excitement among Pakistani-Americans aside, the development is also an example of successful collaboration between Pakistan and the US that can use diplomacy to achieve tangible results. 


Last week`s shipment was the culminatio…

THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD THAT LEAD TO MAKING PAKISTANI MANGOES A REALITY IN THE USA...

How mango exports to US became a reality

News DeskSunday, July 31, 2011






ISLAMABAD: Pakistani mangoes made their debut in the huge US market on Saturday, but this was achieved only after a five-year struggle waged by some dedicated officials in Pakistan and some US leaders committed to provide Pakistan a better trade option.


The Ministry of Food and Agriculture has so far registered 15 Global Gap Certified Orchards for export of mangoes from Pakistan with allocation of unique code identification numbers.


Similarly, eight packing houses have been approved for the export of mangoes.



Seven importers have been issued permits by the US Department of Agriculture, including the Pakistani Consulate in Chicago. The first consignment was sent on July 27.




National Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services (Naphis) developed the strategy to export mangoes to the US.




Naphis initiated its activities as a project in 2006 and a meeting was held in US in 2007 among Thomas Wilsack, Secretary, Agricult…

LUCKNOW: To protect mango plantations from a common pest affecting mango trees the mango leaf webber, the Central Institute of Subtropical Horticulture on Monday issued an advisory notice to mango farmers in Lucknow's mango belt of Malihabad, Mall and Kakori blocks.



According to CISH, the mango leaf webber is a 'serious pest in Malihabad belt'. 

In the advisory issued by the Central Institute, director H Ravishankar said that infested shoots should be pruned and burned to reduce pest population. 

Soil surrounding the base of the tree must be raked in January, after the last batch of the pests have appeared. 


In addition, leaf webs should also be cleared using comb-like leaf web removing device developed by CISH and burning them, apart from spraying quinalphos.

STORM BREWING IN THE ATLANTIC MAY DEVELOP INTO SEASON'S FIRST CONCERN FOR USA COAST...

Tropical System Threatens Antilles, Concern for U.S. coast

By Alex Sosnowski, Expert Senior Meteorologist
Aug 1, 2011; 4:15 PM ET




A developing tropical system, destined to become Emily early this week, will threaten the Antilles first and could approach part of the U.S. coastline this weekend.



The strength of the system will likely determine its path and survivability in the days ahead.



The system has had some issues with dry air and wind shear over the weekend. It may have to negotiate 4,000-foot mountains on Puerto Rico or 10,000-foot mountains on Hispaniola later this week.



According to Meteorologist Mark Mancuso, "A strong system is more likely to survive the trip through the rugged mountains of the Greater Antilles."







Most of our forecast tools are turning the system more to the northwest as the week progresses. Currently, it is moving on a westerly track aimed at the Caribbean.



According to Expert Senior Meteorologist Paul Pastelok, "A strong system is more likely to curve…

Mango mania in the US

August 1, 2011






Mangoes, the love of Mirza Ghalib’s life, the king of fruit, and the object of many a Pakistanis’ desire, finally landed for the first time in Chicago.


After a quick trip to the facility for chemical treatment, the mangoes, boxed up in cartons bearing the US and Pakistan flags, were wheeled into the ballroom of the Hilton, where the Pakistan Embassy held an inaugural event to “introduce the mangoes to the United States”.


The event started off trying to be a less classy version of a J&S event and ended up being a wedding.


Women from the Pakistani community, clad in their finest, exchanged gossip over mangoes, while men debated foreign policy, business and their two cents on Pakistan, while cradling ‘chaunsas’ that were on display. 


A green and white cake was wheeled out towards the end, for Ambassador Hussain Haqqani and his wife Presidential spokesperson Farahnaz Ispahani to cut.


The mangoes themselves were a delight to behold and were presented with…

NITROGEN CLEAN UP: A TRIPLE WIN


Analysis by Tim Wall


Mon Aug 1, 2011 08:58 AM ET





Reducing nitrogen pollution from wastewater treatment plants could be a triple win for business as well the environment, concluded a study published in Environmental Science & Technology.


Adding additional purification technologies to the existing infrastructure of wastewater treatment plants could have three benefits: lower energy usage; less water pollution; and fewer greenhouse gas emissions.


 Economic benefits could be realized as well if treatment plants used nitrogen removal to earn credits for greenhouse gas removal.


"Our study shows that there's a win-win-win situation out there waiting to be realized," said James Wang of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Air Resources Laboratory, and lead author of the paper, in a Columbia University press release.

AS MEXICO'S DRUG CARTELS FEEL PRESSURE...COLOMBIA CONSOLIDATES POWER...

Colombia's criminal networks consolidate around two forces


Two major criminal networks have been extending their reach throughout Colombia. In Mexico. pressure from security forces has had the opposite effect, causing the criminal underworld to fragment.




Police officers place seized weapons on a table during a media conference in Cali July 29. About 47 weapons were seized from gangs during a raid, police said.

As Mexico's criminal underworld fragments under pressure from the security forces, that of Colombia appears to be consolidating around two opposing criminal networks.


New criminal syndicates are continually forming in Mexico, as the bigger cartels are decapitated and middle ranking leaders step up to form their own organizations. 

In Colombia, however, the reverse seems to be the case, as the number of major league criminal gangs shrinks. 

However, the two names that are left standing in Colombia repr…
