USA: THE MISINFORMED MANGO CATEGORY IN SMALL PRODUCE MARKETS ...

IMO NOTE:


This picture was uploaded today along with a description by a produce clerk who obviously does not have a clue about the mangoes he/she is selling!


Manila - not at this time of year.


Champagne - not unless FRESKA (BUNNY LABEL) bought out Cirulli Brothers.


Mexican Mangoes - not at this time of year. Probably beginning of March 2013.


More than likely Ataulfo mangoes from Ecuador or Peru imported and distributed by FRESKA PRODUCE INTERNATIONAL.


This picture and sad state of affairs regarding country of origin labelling (COOL) but more importantly how misinformed (ignorant) produce clerls are today in the USA market.

SEGUNDA ETAPA DAKAR RALLY 2013: PISCO - PISCO ...

Pisco-Pisco: 100% dunas

El recorrido de la segunda etapa de este Dakar 2013 empieza y termina en Pisco. 



Tras una primera jornada para calentar motores, los participantes entran realmente en materia con 327 kilómetros de arena. 



El programa de hoy son 85 kilómetros de enlace, seguidos de 242 de especial, 100% entre dunas, aunque la dificultad en el sector no será máxima… Eso llegará el lunes… Los equipos tendrán ocasión de admirar el grandioso paisaje, aunque algunos podrían ser los primeros en caer en las trampas del mar de arena. 


No se han producido sorpresas en la primera jornada, aunque cabe destacar la parada del estadounidense Robby Gordon en coches durante la especial. 



Marcos Patronelli, segundo en 2012, detrás de su hermano, pierde un puesto al quedar tercero en la categoría de cuadriciclos o quads. 




Solo Gérard De Rooy y su equipo han podido afirmar sus ambiciones de forma contundente en la clasificación de camiones. 



Los favoritos, como Stéphane Peterhansel y Cyril Despres, han …

Lots of people juggle careers. Bill Pullman has grafted his.





Pullman, who played the president of the United States in Independence Day, will play another U.S. president in the NBC comedy, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, debuting Jan. 10. 


But he's also included in Canadian director Yung Chang's documentary, The Fruit Hunters, because he's so involved in growing fruit on his 2 1/2-acre orchard below Hollywood's hillside sign.

CLIMATE MIGRATION AND INTERNATIONAL TRADE ...

Dear Dr. Cavan:
Thank you for the very important work that the International Mango Organization does and for the dissemination of important documents to the Global Agricultural community.



Please find below the abstract to an original article entitled “On Climate Migration and International Trade,” Vienna Journal of International Constitutional Law, Vol. 6, Issues 3+4, pp. 410-440, 2012







On Climate Migration and International Trade



Abstract



This article provides a legal analysis of climate migration and examines the potential impact of such migration on international trade. 



It is generally accepted that climate change will have widespread impacts and that people must be ready to adapt to those impacts. One of the ways people are likely to adapt is by migrating (i.e., climate migration), and in spite of the fact that this has become one of the most widely discussed areas of climate change adaptation, there is, as yet, no solid grasp of its potential scope. 



This article analyzes first the lega…

PHILIPPINES: Zambales legislator files bill establishing mango-industry development agency ...

Published on Sunday, 06 January 2013 19:02


Written by PNA








A LAWMAKER has filed a measure establishing the Philippine Mango Industry Development Authority (PMIDA) to adopt a comprehensive program to revitalize mango production, processing and marketing in the country.


Rep. Jun Omar Ebdane (Second District, Zambales province), author of House Bill 6393, said that the mango is a high-value and high-earning crop that ranks third among important fruits.






“The country has found its way in the Guinness Book of World Records as [having] the sweetest mango in the world,” Ebdane said.







The legislator said, however, that the Philippines cannot meet the mango demand of Asian countries like Hong Kong and Singapore. 



Other major markets of fresh mangoes are Japan, South Korea, New Zealand and Australia.






In terms of mango production, the Philippines lags behind India, which harvests 10.8 million metric tons of the fruit annually, followed by China (3.6 MMT), Thailand (1.72 MMT) and Pakistan (1.7 MMT).

JAPON: Pescaron un atún de ¡222 kilos! (Fotos + Sushi) ...

Enero 5, 2013 8:02 am

























Un atún rojo 222 kg fue vendido este sábado en Tokio en 1,8 millón de dólares en la primera subasta del año en el gran mercado de pescado de Tsukiji.










El propietario de una famosa cadena de restaurantes de sushi adquirió este ejemplar, capturado en la localidad de Oma, en el norte de Japón, triplicando el récord del año pasado, dijo un responsable de la tradicional subasta inaugural del mayor mercado de pescado del mundo.





Kiyoshi Kimura, propietario de la cadena de restaurantes, también ganó el año pasado la subasta.




“Yo quería estar a la altura de las expectativas de mis clientes, que quieren comer el mejor atún posible, como el año pasado”, declaró a la agencia de prensa Jiji.




Al precio que lo compró, una pequeña rebanada de sushi debería costar alrededor de 339 dólares, pero la empresa dijo que iba a venderla a 400 yenes, unos 4,5 dólares.




El atún rojo, una especie sobreexplotada, es el pescado más caro en el mercado de Tsukiji. Los japoneses consumen alrededor de tr…

2013: Venezuela en vilo ...

PORTADA




Parece un hecho que Chávez no se posesionará el 10 de enero. Sin embargo, no es seguro que ese día el país salga de la incógnita sobre su salud o sobre quién está al mando.



Chávez en su discurso de cierre de campaña en Caracas unos días antes de su tercera reelección el 7 de octubre pasado.





Recuadros
¿Quién es quien??
Lo que dice ?la Constitución?






En Venezuela las cosas han cambiado mucho en el último mes. Desde que Chávez viajó a Cuba el 10 de diciembre para someterse a una cuarta operación, el gobierno ha tenido una inusitada locuacidad. 



En menos de 30 días los venezolanos, acostumbrados al silencio oficial, han escuchado 27 boletines sobre la salud presidencial. 



Pero estos han sido hasta ahora confusos, ambiguos e incluso contradictorios. Los boletines oficiales están plagados de calificativos tan vagos como “complicado”, “complejo”, “difícil”, “favorable”, “estable” o “exitoso”. 



Y nadie en el oficialismo ha contestado la única pregunta que realmente importa: ¿Chávez puede seguir…
