PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, 14 June 2011 – UNICEF Haiti hosted National Basketball Association (NBA) Star and Sacramento Kings’ centre Samuel Dalembert and Nykesha Sales, a six-time Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) All-Star, in a visit to a malnutrition centre in a hospital still recovering from the January 2010 earthquake.

"We've been wanting to make a trip like this for a while, to bring players here to see the situation so we can organize programmes here," said Mr. Dalembert, who left Haiti at the age of 13 and has played in the NBA for ten years.

SIMPLY THE BEST ADVICE YOU WILL EVER GET IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE...

IMO NOTE: This poem was a gift from Ambassador Robert C. Hill (5 times political appointee and youngest U.S. Ambassador at 34 years of age. He served as vice consul in India (Probably where he came to appreciate this poem)...later on... He served as Assistant Secretary of Defense, and had the fortutude to stand up to Henry Kissinger over human rights abuses in Chile...a man of conviction, valor and a wonderful example...a leader among men!

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;


If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,


But make allowance for their doubting too:


If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,


Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,


Or being hated don't give way to hating,


And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;


If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;


If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,


If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster


And treat those two impostors just t…

NUTRIENT DEFICIENCIES MANIFEST YEARS OF WEAR & TEAR ON CALFORNIA MANGOES

AS BAD AS THESE TREES LOOK....THEY CAN BE SAVED.....

California mango trees in the Coachella valley are suffering from years of abuse and mismanagement.


Like a crack addict on skid row, these poor trees have been stressed and overdosed with nitrogen in industrial doses that are finally showing their wear and tear.


local farmers blame frost, and varietal defects.


The truth is that proper care has not been applied and respect for the cycle of nature has been ignored.


There is hope if the Californians will listen.


His name is Michael Kraidy and he has saved many crops in addition to mango farming operations for years.


Kraidy says:


"If I can see the problem, the yield losses are always great.  

I don't like to make recommendations on visual deficiencies as that means that the problem has to be very bad before the plant will show the deficiency.  At that point, we missed the boat so to speak.  We never want problems to become visual.  If they…

MANGOES ARE PART OF THE AUSTRALIA - PHILIPPINE TRADE DISPUTE...

After blocking mangoes, Aussies want to sell fruits here

by Othel V. Campos



A PENDING request to bring in a trial shipment of Australian grapefruit and citrus has become the latest chapter in the long-simmering trade war between Canberra and Manila.

“Australia is asking us to allow the entry of their grapefuit and different kinds of oranges,” Bureau of Plant Industry Director Lito Baron told the Manila Standard Monday.

“We have already sent our comments to their request, but we have yet to receive their response. In that case, we cannot allow any trial shipment at this time,”

Baron said the Philippines was still weighing Australia’s request, but it favored asking it to allow the entry of Philippine mangoes, which the Australian agriculture lobby had been opposing for a decade.

“We are banking on the principle of reciprocity,” he said.

“If we allow the entry of Australian fruits, they might also allow the entry of Philippine mangoes.”

As a result of the Philippines’ request, a team fro…

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT THE NMB SHOULD BE ACTIVELY PERSUEING....ISO STANDARDS FOR MANGOES...

Dear Mr. Cavan,



Thank you for your interest in ANSI and ISO. 
 There is an ISO Committee – TC 34/SC 14 Fresh, dry and dried fruits and vegetables that developed ISO 6660 Mangoes – Cold Storage. 
 I would encourage you to review the abstract found here: http://www.iso.org/iso/iso_catalogue/catalogue_tc/catalogue_detail.htm?csnumber=20798.



As you may be aware, ISO’s membership is based by country and ANSI holds the US membership to ISO. In order for ANSI to participate in a committee, there must be an ANSI accredited US Technical Advisory Group (US/TAG). 
 The US/TAG is composed of organizations that are affected by the development of standards in a certain area. Currently, ANSI does not participate in this committee, as we do not have a US/TAG.



I have attached a copy of the ANSI International Procedures.
 Section 2 of this document explains how to form a US/TAG. 
 If you are interested in learning more about the US/TAG process and how one is formed, it would be best for us to speak on…

Its philosophies and insights are intended to reach beyond the scope of religion and to humanity as a whole. 




It is at times referred to as the "manual for mankind" and has been highly praised by not only prominent Indians such as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi but also Aldous Huxley, Albert Einstein, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Ralph Waldo Emerson,Carl Jung and Herman Hesse.[1][2] It is considered among the most important texts in the history of literature and philosophy.[3]
