Typhoon reduces Philippine farmers to beggars ...

by Staff Writers


New Bataan, Philippines (AFP) Dec 11, 2012







The secluded valley that sheltered Jerry Blanco's banana crop from communist and Muslim rebellions offered no refuge from Typhoon Bopha, which left him destitute in seconds.



Last week's terrifying storm has left more than 1,600 people dead or missing in the southern Philippines, and all but wiped out the banana plantations that are one of the desperately poor country's few export earners.







"First the strong wind came, then a sheet of rain. Our roof rattled, the house creaked and then the wall was blown away," Blanco, a 39-year-old plantation worker, told AFP in the southern Philippines.





"I looked out across the field, and all the (banana stalks) were felled. Our harvest was gone. The first thought in my mind was, we've just lost our future," the father of four said.




Barefoot, shirtless and wearing torn trousers, Blanco stood by the roadside with neighbours who had also suddenly lost everything.

PORT OF SINGAPORE: THE WORLD'S BUSIEST PETROL STATION ...

Asian ports


Containing the competition






Jul 31st 2011, 16:05 by R.C. | SINGAPORE










FOR all its posh banks, fancy lawyers and lucrative casinos, it is the port that remains the bedrock of Singapore's extraordinary prosperity. 



Founded as a trading station by the British in the early 19th century at the crossroads of Far East-European trade, the tiny city-state has become accustomed to ruling the waves as a maritime hub—and as many as 180,000 jobs in the maritime industry depend on it out of a population of just 5m.







So it came as a jolt earlier this year when it was revealed that Singapore had been knocked off its perch as the world's busiest container port by Shanghai. In 2010 the Chinese city dealt with 29.07m TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units, the standard measure of container traffic), to Singapore's 28.43m. Given China's rapid economic growth over the past decade it was only a matter of time before Shanghai overtook Singapore. Indeed, if the Chinese economy continues expan…

A Beautiful Mango Farm That You've Never Heard In Your Life...

The Lookout Tower.










Recently I had the chance to visit and photograph a mango farm in Tobiar, Kedah. 






Well, it is a large mango farm run by the federal government's agency, Malaysian Agricultural Development Agency or "MADA". 




With the size of 41 hectare, this is the biggest mango farm in Malaysia. You can enjoy a tram ride around the farm, climb the lookout tower and enjoy the aerial view and also watch the mangoes being processed at the processing center. 



We were there during the flowering season, so there are the yellow hues among the trees of the flowers, which is observable in the photos.




The Tram.





The farm is indeed beautiful, surrounded by green paddy fields. 



The only surprising problem is that the public is not really aware of it's existence, even most of the lo…

10 Largest Ship Graveyards in the World ...

August 5, 2011 


By sharda








A graveyard in simple terms is a more refined term for burial grounds. 




Ships graveyard refers to those places where ships are left for disintegration. 





The graveyards are of two varieties: the ones created specifically for the purpose of a ship’s decomposition and the oceanic parts where ships have been stranded without any chances of getting rescued because of natural occurrences.








Alternatively, there exists a third variant of ship graveyard. The ships that form a part of this graveyard are not ships that are put specifically to disintegrate.



 On the contrary, they are ships defunct from the active line of duty because of some reason. 



The grave yards formed of such abandoned ships are seen in several parts of the world. Sometimes, even ship breaking yards are also termed as ship grave yards.








A detailed list mentioning the 10 largest graveyards of ships across the world is enumerated as follows:

BACK LOG OF CONTAINER VESSELS AT VENEZUELA PORTS CREATED BY CORRUPTION ...

MIT in box deluge







Manzanillo International Terminal in Panama is struggling to cope with a surge in transhipment containers as lines juggle services to cope with Venezuela’s import backlog








A surge in import demand coupled with lengthly customs and other regulatory delays clearing cargo has created a backlog of vessels and containers at Venezuelan ports. Speaking at the TOC Americas Container Supply Chain conference, MIT's General Manger Stacy Hatfield said that the company has been dealing with 12,000 to 14,000 renominations a month as lines struggle with the Venezuelan situation.






MIT has had its own difficulties too, including forced road closures following protests over plans to sell land in the Colón Free Zone in October and flooding in November. 




Despite the disruptions, MIT is on track for a 12% increase in volume this year, said Hatfield. 




The peak number of boxes in the yard, however, has increased 50-60% as dwell times on transhipment boxes have rise…
