Ecuador has started late this season compared to last year.


After a dip compared to last year in week 40, volume has picked up in week 41.


However, volume is picking up with most recent shipments to USA market.


Ecuador is now on track with last season with 66 containers shipped through week 41.


80% of the volume shipped so far is yellow skin fruit as compared to the redskin fruit currently in the market from Brazil.


Ecuador enjoys the shipping advantage of going to both East and West Coasts in the USA market.


16 containers were shipped to the East Coast during week 41 with 36 headed for the West Coast USA.


Ecuador needs to get some volume into the USA market in order to take advantage of the red hot mango market before Peru comes in with volume at the beginning to middle of January 2013.


USA Market is currently $9.00 p…

Choosing the right mango for the right product

CHICAGO- With over a thousand different varieties of mangoes to choose from, selecting the right variety for mango products can be a daunting task.





 A new study in the Journal of Food Science, published by the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), explores the impact that processing has on the flavor and texture of mango varieties. Findings suggest that processing plays an important role in determining the flavor and texture of the final product.






Researchers at Kansas State University studied the flavor and texture of four different mango varieties as they were processed from fresh mango to heat-treated purée to sorbet. 



Although many of the variety-specific flavor characteristics were carried over to the purées, processing had a different impact on each of the varieties, boosting or reducing the intensities of certain flavors in some, while not in others. 


Only very distinct flavor properties of the cultiv…

VENEZUELAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WAS MANIPULATED BY CUBA CLAIMS FORMER CHAVEZ ADVISER ...

Chávez’s Campaign Dirty Tricks Reveal a More Sinister Side



José R. Cárdenas served in several foreign policy positions during the George W. Bush administration (2004-2009), including on the National Security Council staff. He is a consultant with Vision Americas in Washington, DC.





Even as the world marvels at the ways in which social media can work to undermine undemocratic regimes, the flip side is that the same new communications technologies can be exploited by those regimes to further repress and control their populations.



As U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights Michael Posner recently noted, “We are seeing a growing number of repressive regimes get hold of the latest, greatest Western technologies and use them to spy on their own citizens for the purpose of quashing peaceful political dissent or even information that would allow citizens to know what is happening in their communities.”





Indeed, the opportunities have not been lost on Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez. Ah…

ANTHONY DAQUIN RECLAMA FRAUDE EN LAS ELECCIONES PRESIDENCIALES VENEZOLANAS !!!

According to Anthony Daquin, a Venezuelan computer engineer who formerly advised the Venezuelan Ministry of Interior and Justice, the Chávez government is working with Cuba to implement a new electronic national identity system that would allow the government to instantly monitor private and sensitive personal information on each Venezuelan citizen, including how much they earn, where they live, what property they own, and what their political leanings are...

RECLAMAN QUE SI HUBO FRAUDE EN LAS ELECCIONES VENEZOLANAS !

Ex- asesor del forajido explica mecanismos del fraude. ¡Cinco millones de cédulas falsas!.




Este informe fue escrito en el blog Sergio Amorín, periodista brasileño defensor de la democraci. Les pongo la traducciòn al español.






– (…) Según expertos consultados, el gobierno venezolano empleó una serie de mecanismos fraudulentos para beneficiar a Chávez en su propósito de extender a 20 años su período presidencial, incluyendo el uso de un registro electoral que nunca ha sido depurado pese a insistentes reclamos de que dentro de la lista aparecen registradas millones de personas que en realidad no existen.






El ingeniero Anthony Daquin, ex asesor del Ministerio de Interior y Justicia de Venezuela, sostiene que ese universo de electores fantasmas se esconde entre las cinco millones de cedulas de identidad emitidas sin cumplir con los debidos requisitos legales a lo largo de los últimos 10 años, a través de un proceso que en realidad estuvo organizado por el gobierno cubano.

WILL FDA PROSECUTE DANIELLA MANGO OUTBREAK PERPETRATORS ???

FDA’s Power to Prosecute

What authority does the agency have in the wake of an outbreak?




BY ANDY FRAME | OCTOBER 17, 2012




More than a year after the deadly Listeria outbreak that stemmed from Jensen Farms’ cantaloupes was first detected, criminal charges have yet to be filed against the company, but the Food and Drug Administration’s website says its outbreak investigation is still open.









FDA’s report was last updated on January 8, 2012 with information provided by the Centers for Disease Control in its final update, which reported a total of 147 illnesses in 28 states, 33 deaths and one miscarriage linked to the outbreak.








Since FDA has yet to close the case – or notify the public of any further actions regarding the outbreak – will Jensen’s face criminal prosecution sometime in the future?




The U.S. Attorney’s office in Denver would not confirm nor deny the existence of any investigation into the Jensen Farms case when contacted by Food Safety News.






Lack of Prosecution Not Unusual
