MELISSA'S CHARTS THE PERFECT MANGO ...

HOW TO DISMANTLE THE NATIONAL MANGO BOARD (NMB) ....

IMO NOTE:


Aside from paying for International and Domestic travel for a select few Mango Importers as well as enriching William Watson and his staff, The National Mango Board has done nothing to improve the lot of Mango Farmers that ultimately fund the National mango Board (NMB).



How can the National mango Board (NMB) justify the nearly 50 Million dollars that have been squandered since it's inception ???







Perhaps the National Mango Board (NMB) will be next .....

Coral Beach











A judge is ready to dismantle the California Raisin Marketing Board unless the state’s attorney general and agriculture department can convince him that he has misunderstood evidence presented at trial.





In a “proposed statement of decision,” Judge Raymond Cadei of the Superior Court of Sacramento County said the state failed to provide evidence that its raisin industry was on the brink of collapse when the board was formed under the Marketing…

Is It Crazy to Think We Can Eradicate Poverty?

IT’S THE ECONOMY

By ANNIE LOWREY

At a news conference during the spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in late April, Jim Yong Kim held up a piece of paper with the year “2030” scribbled on it in pen.




 “This is it,” said Kim, the genial American physician who took over as president of the World Bank last summer. 



“This is the global target to end poverty.”

Deep thoughts this week:

1. Dire poverty might end soon.

2. China is leading the way.

3. Urbanization is key.

4. But it doesn’t always look pretty.







It sounds like the sort of airy, ambitious goal that is greeted by standing ovations but is ultimately unlikely to ever materialize.




 Development experts don’t see it that way, though. 



The end of extreme poverty might very well be within reach.



 “It’s not by any means pie-in-the-sky,” says Scott Morris, who formerly managed the Obama administration’s relations with development institutions.

(Caracas, 01 de mayo. AFP) – Los chavistas y opositores venezolanos marcharán este miércoles por el día del trabajador, luego de que la víspera la tensión poselectoral se desbordara en la Asamblea Nacional con episodios violentos entre diputados ante el rechazo de la oposición a reconocer a Nicolás Maduro como presidente electo.




Durante la jornada, legisladores oficialistas y opositores tienen previsto reunirse luego de la agitada sesión en la Asamblea del martes en la que varios legisladores de ambos bandos fueron golpeados.




“El primero de mayo a la calle en defensa de Bolívar”






Maduro, que venció en los comicios del 14 de abril por un estrecho margen de 1,49 puntos porcentuales al líder opositor Henrique Capriles, encabezará la marcha de los trabajadores chavistas, que se desplazarán desde el centro y oeste de Caracas hacia la céntrica Plaza O’Leary, donde tiene previsto pronunciar un discurso.

IMO & IPO SUPPORT TECHO PROJECT ....

TECHO’S INTERVENTION MODEL






TECHO’S Com­mu­nity In­ter­ven­tion fo­cuses on the most ex­cluded slums of the con­ti­nent. 





The joint work of fam­i­lies and young vol­un­teers, who work to pro­duce con­crete so­lu­tions to the prob­lem­atic of poverty, is the key dri­ver of the in­ter­ven­tion. TECHO dri­ves a con­tin­u­ous com­mu­nity strength­en­ing process, tak­ing com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment as the trans­ver­sal axis of the in­ter­ven­tion.







The ini­tial phase of the Com­mu­nity In­ter­ven­tion con­sists of the in­ser­tion into slums and in the de­vel­op­ment of a di­ag­nos­tic of the fam­i­lies in need. 





Youth vol­un­teers have their first ap­proach to the re­al­ity which can be seen in the slums, work­ing in the field in order to de­velop a di­ag­no­sis, and to en­hance the res­i­dents lead­er­ship by pro­mot­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion, par­tic­i­pa­tion, and com­mu­nity co-re­spon­si­bil­ity in the whole process.












In the sec­ond phase, as a re­sponse to the iden­ti­fied needs in the com­mu­nit…

TANZANIA : STRONG DEMAND FOR ORGANIC MANGOES BY EURO MARKET ....

Organic food farms to get major boost

Dar es Salaam. Trade Africa Network Tanzania Limited (Tan-Tanzania) has said international lending institutions are ready to give organic food producers loans worth 80 per cent of the ordered amount once producers secure global markets for their produces.






The loan aims at supporting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and cooperatives in financing production and storage buildings, equipment and machinery and operating equipment.





Speaking yesterday in Dar es Salaam at the press conference, Tan-Tanzania country coordinator Deusdedit Stephen said one of the lending institutions with interest is COLEACP, an interprofessional network promoting sustainable horticultural trade.









“The interest rate to be charged is not yet to be understood, but we believe it will be fair,” said Mr Stephen.
Mr Stephen said the lending institutions showed interest this year during February two-weeks study and network…
