MAP OF PHILIPPINES: HOME OF MANY MANGOES

PHILIPPINES: MULTI FACETED ARCHIPELIGO (Province of Pangasinan)

With its four cities and 44 towns, the storied, populous province of Pangasinan recently celebrated its 431st Founding Anniversary (Agew na Pangasinan) with a myriad of activities.

These included a song-and-dance beach party, a grand ball and a civic parade around the stately Capitol grounds with street dancing, walking contingents caparisoned in imaginative costumes and a float competition.

Pangasinan is a province of spiritual healers, historical churches, festivals, caves (check out Enchanted Cave in Bolinao, with cold spring waters normally up to six ft deep), falls, and hotels and beach resorts galore.

Places to eat include Hardin sa Paraiso in Manaoag and (in Dagupan City) Park & Kim, Todd’s, and Pebble Beach Café; and in Lingayen, the Capitol Resort Hotel (for its Bolinao longganisa). Manila bus lines which go to the province (up to Bolinao) are Victory Liner and Five-Star.

As in any Philippine province, the festivals are year-round: Bagoong Festival (last week of Apri…

Menardo R. Jimenez harvests mangoes with grandchildren Sammy Westfall, Jaime Jimenez, Mateo Jimenez, Alex Westfall and Miguel Jimenez



Hey look, it’s a big pig!” When your three-year-old sees a carabao for the first time and mistakes it for a hog, it can be amusing. But if he grows up thinking that fruits and vegetables grow in supermarket bins; or that if he buries a hotdog in a flower pot it will grow into a hotdog tree; then that is a more serious matter. When your child grows up abhorring the outdoors, preferring instead to park himself in front of a television or computer screen, there is some cause for concern.

Apart from being a candidate for childhood obesity due to lack of exercise, some opportunities that will help him develop into a better, more caring person are lost.

After all, a growing body of scientific evidence has shown that contact with nature an…

THE EFFECT OF PRUNING TECHNIQUES IN THE GROWTH AND PRODUCTIVITY OF GRAFTED MANGO

Region: Region XI – Southern Mindanao (Davao Region)

Sector: Agriculture, Agrarian Reform and Natural Resources
SubSector: Agriculture

Details:

Pruning is essential in maintaining mango canopy size and encouraging more productive shoots. Since mango fruits are borne in panicles, pruning becomes very critical.

The SMIARC in Davao City conducted an experiment to examine the effects of different pruning techniques in the growth and yield of grafted mango, and to determine which of the techniques is the most economical and appropriate. Six-month-old Carabao mango seedlings were placed at an…

TRANS AMAZON OCEANIC HIGHWAY NEARS COMPLETION: OPENING UP NEW FRONTIERS

Trans-Amazon Highway Nears Completion in Peru

Peruvians brace as superhighway unfolds

The 3,400-mile Transoceanic Highway from Brazil to Peru has long been a pipe dream, but as it finally nears reality many along its long path worry that a way of life and livelihoods are in danger.

The Transoceanic Highway, evoking engineering marvels such as the Transcontinental Railroad and the Panama Canal, has been talked about for decades, assuming a mythic stature that has led many to question whether the east-west thoroughfare linking Brazil’s Atlantic ports with the Pacific docks of Peru would ever come to pass.

Now, Brazilian and Peruvian officials are pushing for a 2011 grand opening, on…

YA GOTTA LOVE IT: "CHAMPAGNE" MANGOES AT BEER PRICES.....WAY TO GO CIRULLI BROTHERS!!!....GREAT MARKETING!!!!!

Champagne Mangoes at Beer Prices
by Regina Schrambling
on 06/10/11 at 05:00 PM



Strawberries are just starting to turn up in the Greenmarkets here, but I keep thinking of that old Bush saying: "Fool me once . . . you can't get fooled again." I appear to be in the minority in believing bigger is not better with strawberries, so I'll stick to the real bumper crop for now. And if you want to put fruit on your family, this is the one (or the many).

Champagne mangoes are literally spilling over on the sidewalks here, at great prices. 
My wallet stays in my bag unless they're a dollar or less apiece. 
These are among the best fruit ever bred, with silky flesh and the perfect balance between sweet and tangy.

We eat them just sliced in half with the flesh razored off the peel with a sharp knife. Unlike the fat red mangoes you can buy anytime, these are all meat around a flat pit, and that "meat" is never fibrous.

They're so cheap and seductive I have on occas…

PLANT A TREE...SAVE THE WORLD: GHANA PUTS WORDS INTO ACTION....

Following the successful launch of the 2011 edition of their employee volunteering programme dubbed the “21 Days of Y’ello Care”, MTN staff volunteers have undertaken a number of activities in fulfillment of their promise of planting 9000 trees across the country.

A week after the launch, MTN employees have so far planted about 5,800 trees across MTN’s South-Eastern, Western-Central and Northern business districts. In each of these business districts 2,050, 1,450 and 2,300 trees were planted respectively. Some of the species of trees planted include Mahogany, Teak, Citrus, Acacia, Avocado pear, Mango, Acacia, Viccer palm tree, Cassia & Eucalyptus.

This year’s 21 Days of Y’ello Care is being celebrated under the theme: “Our Environment, Our Future” and was chosen following the United Nation’s declaration of 2011 as the “International Year of Forest”. Across its 21 operating countries, about 30,000 MTN employees are expected to grow 21, 000 trees, a minimum of 1000 trees per countr…

SAUDI ARABIA DECIDES TO PUMP UP PRODUCTION IN A BID TO KEEP "THE GOOSE THAT LAYS THOSE GOLDEN EGGS" ALIVE...IN DEFIANCE OF OPEC MEMBERS...

Saudi Arabia Defies OPEC and Raises Oil Output
By CLIFFORD KRAUSS
Published: June 10, 2011




In the wake of an unruly OPEC meeting, Saudi Arabia has decided to go it alone and raise production substantially in the coming weeks to meet rising global demand.


The Saudi newspaper Al-Hayat reported on Friday that oil officials there had decided to increase production to 10 million barrels a day in July, from 9.3 million barrels, with most of the additional output going to China and other growing Asian economies.

Saudi oil officials did not comment on the report, but the fact that they did not deny an article that appeared in the tightly controlled Saudi press was taken by analysts as confirmation.

The price of a barrel of light sweet crude dropped by nearly $2.50 to below $99.43 a barrel in Friday trading, returning to the level that existed before the OPEC meeting in Vienna this week that ended in disarray, with delegates refusing to raise official production levels.

The Saudi move, which …

WAREHOUSE FITNESS: WHAT KIND OF SHAPE IS YOUR WAREHOUSE IN ???

Warehouse Fitness Guide: Simple Exercises to Get Your Warehouse in Shape
By Merrill Douglas



A warehouse is an assemblage of parts that work together to keep the whole body healthy and alive. Companies that operate warehouses use many different strategies to keep those parts running in top form. Among other benefits, the strategies aim to save money, increase productivity, eliminate waste, improve service, gain greater flexibility, and reduce carbon footprints.

Some people argue that in an ideal world, goods would move without pause from manufacturer to ultimate consumer. “The most efficient supply chain wouldn’t have any warehouses at all,” says Robert Martichenko, chief executive officer at LeanCor, a third-party logistics firm in Florence, Ky.

But nothing is ideal— certainly not the synchronization of product supply and customer demand. That’s why businesses need warehouses— nodes where inventory waits while supply and demand catch up with one another.

IS CHINA COMMITED TO GLOBALIZATION ? ...OR WILL THERE BE A CHANGE OF HEART ONCE TIMES GET DIFFICULT ? ...

By Fareed Zakaria, CNN

Events in the Middle East and North Africa are of historic importance, but the even bigger, long-term story is the rise of China.

 What path will it choose at home and abroad in the years ahead?

For decades there has been debate at the highest levels of the Chinese government about how much to modernize politically to ensure growth and stave off revolution.

It’s notoriously difficult to analyze the inner workings off the Chinese Communist Party. 
 But today it seems that the liberals are losing the debate. 
China seems to be turning inward - moving away from a strategy of increasing openness and connection to the West and toward one of greater self-reliance and tighter internal controls.

Just look at China’s response to the uprisings in the Middle East. The country’s leadership made no concessions or openings. Instead, it cracked down on any inkling of protest, banned sensitive Internet searches and clamped down on the media.

China not only banned the word “jasmi…

A renewed barrage of shelling by Libyan troops around Misrata has left about 17 dead and at least 60 wounded, according to hospital doctors in the rebel-held city.

Forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi have been pounding Misrata throughout the day.

The city is the main rebel stronghold in western Libya, and has the country's largest port.

Witnesses report no activity in the area by Nato aircraft.

Tanks, artillery and incendiary rockets bombarded rebel positions at Dafniya, about 18 miles (30km) west of the city, said a doctor at Hikma Hospital in Misrata, speaking to Associated Press news agency.

Misrata has been the scene of some of the heaviest fighting of the Libyan unrest. It …

RETHINKING THE GRADUATE DEGREE IN A GLOBALIZED WORLD....

Business schools are globalising at a furious pace—which is largely a good thing


Jun 9th 2011 | from the print edition






BUSINESSPEOPLE are fond of accusing business academics of being all mouth and no trousers (if the accusers are British) or all hat and no cattle (if they are Texan). 
But when it comes to globalisation the professors have trousers and cattle aplenty. In the past decade business education has globalised more thoroughly than business itself. 
This not only matters in its own right (business schools are a big business and a training ground for the global elite). 
It also matters because the rest of academia is likely to follow where business schools have led.

Some business schools have built campuses on the other side of the world. 
INSEAD, a French school, has led the way.
 In 2000 it opened a lavish campus in Singapore with its own full-time faculty. 
Students can start their MBAs either in Singapore or in France and switch between the two coun…
