Superpower status
Friday September 21 2012



LONDON 2012 was about more than just the medals to China. It was an opportunity to show the world that the country could once again reign supreme over the US, regaining its top superpower spot. Alas, it was not to be. The US finished top of the Olympics medal table, with China in a respectable second place.



This will have been disappointing though, for a country that strives to be the best at everything it puts its mind to. But it is not the first time China has had to face up to the harsh realities of life in recent months. There was a time when China, the new kid on the block, represented untapped opportunities. In 2003, for example, China had the world’s sixth-biggest GDP. It overtook France in 2004, Britain in 2006, Germany in 2009, and Japan in 2011. It is expected to replace the US at the top within the next 15 years, and yet bad news has a way of filtering through and spoiling things s…

93 SALMONELLA BRAENDERUP CASES REPORTED IN CALIFORNIA AND NOT A SINGLE LAWSUIT FILED...WHAT GIVES ??? ...

Out of 25 individuals hospitalized, only one person so far has filed suit.


What does this mean?


1.- That the victims don't care about food safety.


2.- The hospitalization did not cost them or the loss of work or inconvenience due to the illness does not matter.


3.- The individuals sickened are disenfranchised and fear filing a lawsuit.




On the same token, The California Department of Public Health has stopped keeping track of the outbreak on their website.


Can you enlighten us on the actual investigation?


How is it that the FDA found Salmonella (Type not specified) inside of DANIELLA mango boxes in three distinct distribution centers.




Agricola Daniella packed and shipped to the USA & Canadian market an average of 24,000,000 pieces of fruit.


Yet there are less than 150 reported cases that have been reported.




The numbers do not seem to match up.





Will we ever find out if the original cases were due to cross contamination or directly related to the packing shed?

Lufthansa to build new logistics centre at Frankfurt ...

21/09/2012 06:47 (1 Day 06:46 minutes ago)







The FINANCIAL -- Lufthansa has announced plans to build a modern logistics centre at Frankfurt Airport .









At its meeting, the Lufthansa Group Supervisory Board approved the investment in the necessary infrastructure for Lufthansa ’s cargo business. 



The building, which will replace the existing over 30-year-old Lufthansa Cargo Center, is due to go into operation in 2018.



“We are investing in the future and in our Frankfurt base,” Lufthansa CEO and Chairman Dr. Christoph Franz stressed. 



Frankfurt would remain the central hub for the Lufthansa Group’s cargo business, despite the night-flight ban. The night-flight ban meant considerably adjusting the original plans. 


In view of the competitive disadvantages compared with other locations, it was therefore all the more important to have access to a reliable and efficient infrastructure.





The new logistics centre will be built mainly on Lufthansa Cargo’s existing site in the northern part of Frankfurt Airp…
