AUSTRALIA: Big mango harvest will put pressure on transport ...

By Steven Schubert

Tuesday, 28/08/2012









The Northern Territory Mango Industry Association is in discussions with transport companies to make sure there are enough trucks during the peak of the mango season.







The association is predicting good yields this year, but over a shorter harvest time than in previous seasons.





Chairman Ian Baker says transport could be difficult when mangoes are being picked in both the Darwin and Katherine regions at the same time.








"The crop is over a shorter period of time, so that could put a bit more pressure on the transport available out of Darwin for maybe two weeks of the total season."

Both California and Canada are investigating the same strain: Salmonella Braenderup.







"Preliminary data indicate that mango consumption is associated with an increase in the number of Salmonella Braenderup cases in California," said CDPH spokesman Matt Conens. "As of today, there are 73 cases with this outbreak strain that have been confirmed." 






Of the patients who have been interviewed, 67 percent reported eating mangoes, according to Conens, but state officials said they have not yet identified speci…

A Youthful Populace Helps Make the Philippines an Economic Bright Spot in Asia ...

MANILA — In the upscale business district of Manila, a midweek crowd spills out into the street. The New York-themed Borough restaurant is pulsating to the beat of a Bon Jovi song, while young, hip Filipinos take shots of tequila from a passing tray and sing in unison.

“Whoa-oh, we’re halfway there!” the crowd sings. “Whoa-oh, livin’ on a prayer!”


The revelers have reason to celebrate. Times are pretty good in the Philippines if you are young, skilled and live in the city. Young urban workers are helping to give the country its brightest prospects in decades, economists say.



With $70 billion in reserves and lower interest payments on its debt after recent credit rating upgrades, the Philippines pledged $1 billion to the International Monetary Fund to hel…

Could tropical storm Isaac actually help break US drought? ...

Tropical storm Isaac is bearing down on the Gulf Coast, but once it gets inland, it is expected to bring much needed rain to drought-hit farmlands.

Although tropical storm Isaac is causing evacuations and is expected to lead to power outages when it comes ashore, there may be a silver lining for drought-pressed farmers farther inland.



After the storm leaves the coast, it is expected to move north, dumping heavy rain up the Mississippi Delta.






Although it is probably too late to help this year’s harvest, agricultural experts say the rain could help recharge the soil for next year’s crop in Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio


It could also add needed water to the river systems that drain into the Mississippi. And by adding moisture to the air, the storm may also set the stage for more rain in the future in some drought-effected areas.
