FLYING CAR IDEAL FOR MANGO FARMERS WHO NEED TO COVER VAST AREAS ...

US flying car maker eyes India, Brazil, China

Panaji, India (AFP) Nov 5, 2011







A company from the United States that is developing a flying car is eyeing the booming economies of India, Brazil and China as future markets, its co-founder said on Saturday.

About 100 people have already placed orders for the "combined flying-driving vehicle" the Transition, which has been priced at $279,000 and is scheduled for launch late next year, Massachusetts-based firm Terrafugia said.

The two-seat vehicle is designed to fly between local airports as well as drive on any road. The company says it is hoping that it will be the world's first commercially viable flying car.

It has a rear propeller for flying and is powered for both flight and on the road by unleaded petrol from regular service stations. It is small enough to fit into a household garage, the firm said on its website.

It converts from a car into a light sports aircraft in about 30 seconds.

"We will launch it …

JUST-FOODS EDITORIAL FOR NOVEMBER 07, 2011 ...

Issue 597

November 7, 2011






Editorial


There's been a sense of boldness from the world of food this past week, with companies making interesting moves into new products, acquisitions and territories. Perhaps with yet more economic turmoil on the horizon, food companies have decided that attack is the best form of defence in terms of weathering the financial storm.

First up, B&G Foods finalised its US$325m purchase of four food brands from Unilever.

B&G called the deal a "game changer" and predicts Mrs Dash salt-free seasonings, butter sprinkles brand Molly McButter, calorie-free sugar substitute Sugar Twin and Baker's Joy, a baking spray with flour, will dovetail with their existing portfolio and result in logistics efficiencies. It also acquired household goods Static Guard and Kleen Guard, a first foray into household goods that will also link in handsomely with their existing distribution network, the company said.

Meanwhile, Spar International has opened its fir…

BEE COLONIES HAVE MIGRATED TO SOUTH AMERICA AND ARE NOW DECLINING AS FLORA PERISHES ...

Bee Buzz: the clock is ticking for South American bee colonies


November 7th, 2011


Albert Einstein famously warned that without bees mankind would only have another 100 years to live. Despite their key role in the food chain they are increasingly under threat, and South America is no exception.

Latin America is lucky when it comes to bees. There are still plenty of them and in some areas their colonies are on the rise. But even so there are worrying trends that pose a threat to future populations.

The parasite varroa, a rise in pesticide use, decline in flora, dwindling water supplies, and an increase in genetically modified crops are just a few of them.

University of Chile’s agricultural sciences lecturer Dr Fernando Santibáñez, says the U.S. offers a salutory lesson where bee populations have more than halved over the last 60 years.

“The use of pesticides there has been so intense that the survival of bees in California has become a major concern.”

Their decline has threatened…
