EURO MARKET : First Peruvian mangoes arrive at Star fruit

Ive Lambert: "Early arrival with higher brix"







Mangoes by air from Peru have been available at Star fruit for some weeks now, but yesterday the first containers of the Inca brand arrived.


"The first boat arrived earlier than previous years," said Ive Lambert.

High brix
Ive expects a normal Peruvian season. "Product will be more spread out this year. The quality of the fruit now is good and tasty. The brix sits between 13 and 14, and sometimes 14.5. Compared to last year, the first containers only sat with a brix of 9. Of course, with air freight it is another story as they arrive with a higher brix."

Edward Snowden’s latest NSA leak is a doozy for Australians. 



In 2008, Australia’s surveillance agency, the Defence Signals Directorate (now known as the Australian Signals Directorate), offered to share the private information of Australian citizens with foreign intelligence agencies.








The most troubling aspect of this latest revelation is a discussion that reportedly took place between a global intelligence community known as the Five Eyes — the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand — regarding the sharing of citizens’ “medical, legal and religious information,”according to the Guardian





The recently released document has added weight to the argument that major intelligence powers, who operate hand-in-hand with the U.S. National Security Agency, are exceeding the bounds of their legal mandates, and that their surveillance techniques violate the civil liberties of international citizen…
