More foggers more manpower mosquito nets – Zika now in Jamaica

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciaes, 04 Feb 2016 – The Government says it will dip into the Contingency Fund to beef-up on mosquito control so that the TCI remains Zika-free; the Premier as the Health Minister says he is getting more foggers and getting more manpower as the Zika Virus is now deemed a global health emergency. That news is on time as yet another Caribbean country is added to the list of where not to go if you are pregnant; Jamaica has now been named. It is yet another destination to which the TCI is linked via airline and freight shipping. Director of Environment Health Department, Kenrick Neely explained that he and his team will increase house to house inspections because the Aedes Aegypti lives and breeds near homes or dwelling places. In fact, EHD has been holding meetings since Monday with the various Pastors’ fraternities and Youth Groups – Grand Turk, Provo and South Caicos are in focus this week. The EHD believes this tactic, at this time is more effective than town hall meetings. The hotel sector was present and it was explained that resorts have their own vector control measures to ward off mosquitoes and sand flies. Nonetheless, the sector is going a step further, Ken Patterson of the Seven Stars resort:“We are introducing mosquito netting on all of our four poster beds within in our guest rooms, in order to try to keep our guests safe. We always give out on a complimentary basis any bug sprays in our restaurants, on our beach and in our beach bar.” The resounding message at that media briefing on Friday, held at the Office of the Premier was how clean we all need to be; clean up campaigns, personal cleanliness around homes, schools and work sites is strongly encouraged. Babies born with brain damage, a mosquito virus being spread through sexual contact – all no joke; just yesterday Tonga and Europe too were said to be facing Zika.

California aims to get all electricity from clean sources

California aims to get all electricity from clean sources

first_imgSACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California has set a goal of phasing out fossil fuels from the state’s electricity sector by 2045 under legislation signed Monday by Gov. Jerry Brown.Brown, who has positioned California as a global leader in the effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, approved the measure as he prepares to host a summit in San Francisco of climate change leaders from around the world later this week.The renewable energy measure would require California’s utilities to generate 60 percent of their energy come from wind, solar and other specific renewable sources by 2030. That’s 10 percent higher than the current mandate.The goal would then be to use only carbon-free sources to generate electricity by 2045. It’s merely a goal, with no mandate or penalty for falling short.“It’s not going to be easy and will not be immediate, but it must be done,” Brown said. “California is committed to doing whatever is necessary to meet the existential threat of climate change.”Phasing out fossil fuels would be a massive change in the energy grid. Utilities rely on natural gas plants to meet demand when renewables fall short, particularly in the early evening when the sun sets and people turn on their air conditioners as they get home from work.Utilities are already dealing with an abundance of solar energy during peak times, which must be offloaded to other states when there’s not enough demand locally for the power.Renewable energy experts have looked to batteries that can store solar energy generated in the afternoon as one possible solution, but the technology is not ready for wide-scale deployment.Brown has often faced criticism that he’s too cozy with the oil industry, including from environmental groups that plan to protest at the San Francisco summit.Critics say the renewable energy goal is not realistic and worry that individuals and businesses will face higher energy prices.The measure was written by Democratic Sen. Kevin de Leon, a Los Angeles Democrat who is running for U.S. Senate against Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

ASA Praises New Senate Renewable Fuels Legislation Bill Promotes AmericanMade Energy from

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) praised Senators Chuck Hagel (R-NE) and Tim Johnson (D-SD) for their introduction today of the “Renewable Fuels for Energy Security Act of 2001” bill. The legislation sets a federal goal for increased national use of renewable fuels, such as biodiesel and ethanol. Under the measure, renewable fuels would account for 3 percent of highway transportation fuels by 2011 and 5 percent by 2016. The measure will allow flexible approaches to comply with program goals, in ways that best fit within the operations of fuel providers.“This legislation is needed to help renewable fuels become part of the solution as America seeks ways to reduce years of U.S. dependence on petroleum products. This bill is an important step to foster domestic energy production,” said ASA First Vice President Bart Ruth, a producer from Rising City, Neb. “U.S. consumers will benefit from the shift toward cleaner-burning and better performing fuels while U.S. farmers can use a much-needed boost to soybean prices.”Senator Hagel said, “By establishing a renewable fuel standard, we can improve our air quality, strengthen our national security, reduce our trade deficit, decrease dependency on foreign oil, and create an expanded market for America’s farmers.”Senator Johnson said, “I believe renewable fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel should be the centerpiece of our future energy strategy, because these fuels are home grown solutions that benefit our farmers, provide cleaner air, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. This legislation establishes an aggressive, but realistic, growth pattern for ethanol and biodiesel production and use in the United States.”Commonly produced from soybean and other vegetable oils, biodiesel contains no petroleum. It can be blended easily with diesel. Biodiesel is popular in Europe where motorists use 250 million gallons annually. According to the National Biodiesel Board (NBB), U.S. biodiesel producers are expected to manufacture 20 million gallons in fiscal year 2001, a four-fold increase from last year.“Biodiesel’s growing popularity reflects the increasing interest in it as a cleaner-burning fuel for school buses, national parks, government fleets and for other fuel users across the nation that are addressing air quality issues,” said NBB Executive Director Joe Jobe. “A national commitment toward the utilization of renewable fuels will provide a meaningful boost to the biodiesel industry and our national energy policy.”The fuel offers many environmental and operational benefits. It has the highest energy content of any alternative fuel, which is especially important in heavy-duty diesel applications. Biodiesel is the only alternative fuel to have passed the rigorous Health Effects testing requirements of the Clean Air Act; is non-toxic, biodegradable and free of sulfur. Independent studies also show that the use of biodiesel in conventional diesel engines results in a substantial reduction of pollutants, including carbon dioxide. Moreover, it increases the lubricity of diesel, which is especially valuable when the sulfur content of diesel is reduced. Additional information on the attributes of biodiesel is available at http://www.biodiesel.org/ .Every 100 million gallons of biodiesel requires 760 million pounds of a feedstock, such as vegetable oils, recycled grease or animal fats. If soybean oil were the only feedstock used, 100 million gallons of biodiesel would reduce by one-third the current surplus of 2.1 billion pounds of soy oil. Reducing soy oil supplies by this amount would increase the U.S. soy oil price by an estimated 1.5 cents per pound. With 11 pounds of soy oil in a bushel of soybeans, this would raise U.S. soybean prices by as much as 16.5 cents per bushel.last_img read more

ASAWISHH Ships US Food Grade Soybeans to Cambodia and Myanmar for First

first_imgMatt Gast (second from left) and ASA/WISHH Asia Division Director Alan Poock (far left) met with multiple food company representatives in Myanmar and Cambodia. ASA/WISHH has cultivated their interest in U.S. soy for its quality and other benefits so the companies are enthusiastic about conducting trials with U.S. food grade soybeans.The American Soybean Association (ASA) World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) facilitated a shipment of 14 metric tons of U.S. food-grade soybeans for use in soy milk and tofu in Cambodia and Myanmar at the beginning of March.WISHH’s work in Cambodia and Myanmar has prepared companies that are now eager to conduct their first full-scale production trials. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Quality Samples Program supported the shipment following a competitive bidding process. Three members of the Northern Food Grade Soybean Association (NFGSA) provided the seven varieties of high-quality soybeans for the trials by soy milk and tofu companies that WISHH has worked with in the two countries.ASA/WISHH program committee member Matt Gast traveled to both countries in January, where he joined WISHH in meetings with companies that will evaluate the U.S. soy. Gast also witnessed the market for U.S. soy in food as well as feed, including aquaculture feed.“Cambodia and Myanmar are significant opportunities for U.S. soy to meet their growing demand for high-quality soybeans,” Gast said. “USDA’s support of WISHH’s activities in these countries is an important partnership with our soybean checkoff investments.”The North Dakota Soybean Council (NDSC) supported WISHH’s activities that resulted in the companies’ interest in U.S. soybeans for the premium products they are developing. NDSC is also providing funding to send Northern Crops Institute (NCI) Food Scientist Zach Liu, Ph.D., to train staff in in the companies conducting the trials.last_img read more
