Anticipating higher production of tur (pigeon pea) and urad (black matpe) in 2022, Myanmar’s pulse exporters want the Indian government to increase its annual import quota for these products. Last year, India – the world’s largest producer and consumer of pulses – signed a five-year memorandum of understanding with Myanmar to import 2.5 lakh tonnes of urad and one lakh tonne of tur from annually. neighboring country. According to the Overseas Agro Traders Association (OATA) Myanmar, the association of legume exporters based in Yangon, the production of tur in Myanmar is expected to more than double to around 2.5 lakh tonnes, while the crop size d ‘urad increases by about eight percent to 6.75. lakh tonnes in 2022.

“We would like to urge the governments of India and Myanmar to consider doubling the import quantities of tur and urad as part of the MoU,” said Vatsal Lilani, President of OATA Myanmar, at the meeting. ‘a recent webinar on the outlook for tur and urad in Myanmar. “If the quotas are not increased to five lakh tonnes for urad and two lakh tonnes for tur by the Indian government, it is possible that farmers will turn to other cash crops which have a ready market. across Myanmar’s land borders. If the Indian demand in the following years is for larger tonnages and they are not available, we could see dramatic price increases, ”said Lilani.

“An important step”

Nidhi Khare, Supplementary. The Secretary of the Ministry of Consumer Affairs said: “Myanmar is a very important partner when it comes to supplying urad and tur. It contributed 69% and 98% of total imports in 2019-2020 and 2020-2021. We are dependent on imports because there is a huge gap between demand and supply. The five-year MoU is an important step towards a stable and predictable import policy for pulses and assured availability regardless of short-term policy changes and adjustments. “

Hitesh Jain of AGT Foods and Secretary of OATA Myanmar said that every policy India takes on urad will have a direct impact on Myanmar farmers. This year, urad’s production is expected to be 50,000 tonnes or more higher than last year, as plantings have increased, meaning that production estimated for 2022 would be around 675,000 tonnes. With the Indian government extending the OGL regime until March 31, 2022, and Myanmar’s harvest looming, it will be interesting to see how the markets react in both countries. harvests to wean them would be difficult, he said.

Lalit Pant of Viterra India said urad production in India this year is expected to be around 27.50 tonnes lakh (according to early early estimates), but taking into account possible crop damage due to excessive rains during harvest. , production could be similar to last year. . India’s annual requirements are between 30 and 33 tonnes lakh, creating a gap between supply and demand, leaving room for import.

Nitin Kalantri of Kalantri Food Products said production of tur, which has been affected by excessive rains this year, is expected to be 15-20% lower. The Ministry of Agriculture, in its first advance estimate, estimated the harvest of tur at around 44.30 lakh tonnes.

Kalantri said that India’s total annual turk consumption is around 39-40 lakh tonnes, which is met by domestic production and imports. “So far India has imported around five lakh tonnes, of which around 3 lakh tonnes have been consumed. Thus, we have 38 lakh tonnes of this year’s production plus 1.50 lakh tonnes of carry over with NAFED, 1.20 to 1.30 lakh tonnes of carry over with private actors and around 1.75 lakh to 2 lakh tonnes on imports expected from Myanmar by the end of June. Right now the farmers are among the biggest stockists and we don’t expect them to sell the meal at distress prices. Kalantri added that Turkish prices are expected to be between 5,700 and 6,500 per quintal.

Anant Chhajed of Swiss Singapore Overseas Enterprise said the expected opening stock of tur is around 10,000 tonnes and production during the year will be around 2.5 lakh tonnes.

Myanmar mainly depends on India for Turkish exports with very little amount exported to Nepal, UAE and others. A more coherent India import policy will certainly help Myanmar production and the five-year MoU will also help bilateral trade by ensuring trade stability. “There is a demand deficit in the figures for India, therefore, the governments of India and Myanmar should consider increasing the amount in the MoU for tur and it should be to at least two lakh tonnes since the increase in quantity and the MoU also help the Indian government to control retail price inflation, ”he said.

The Tasty Nut Shop and Soda Bar is a 101-year-old White Pigeon Michigan business at 100 E. Chicago Road. The three-story building was constructed in 1856 approximately 5 years before the start of the Civil War. After complaints about the condition of the building and the pieces falling from it, the village hired a structural engineering company to examine the building and submit a report. According to a wwmt report, a structural engineer from a company hired by White Pigeon Village Council, Mark Wilson, recommended that the building be demolished as it is at risk of collapsing and therefore poses a danger to the public.

In his report, Mr Wilson said the building is:

“Irreparable, over the entire height of the structure. “

Mr Wilson included another recommendation in his report to the village “that the structure should be carefully documented to preserve its historical record so that it is held available to the public, possibly by planning and constructing a historical exhibit at the site. “.

Tasty Nut Shop owner Margorie Hamminga said:

“It’s a landmark and everything … And I hate to see it go away because it’s the history of the city.” This is their story.

What a pity it would be to lose such a historic building in southwest Michigan. A decision on what the next steps will be has not been made by the village council as of the publication date of this article.

The following is a link to the wwmt report which has the full 78 page engineer’s report with photos for you to view.

Biden’s next year of paralysis https://facolombofilia.com/bidens-next-year-of-paralysis/ Tue, 04 Jan 2022 03:54:13 +0000 https://facolombofilia.com/bidens-next-year-of-paralysis/ The first business day of 2022 and already Washington, DC has been paralyzed by snow.

The first business day of 2022 and already Washington, DC has been paralyzed by snow. That doesn’t mean much, considering that half an inch is enough to stop things around these parts. As a kid growing up in Connecticut, I remember countless snowy mornings where I would get up early, walk down the stairs, light the lists, only to be devastated to learn that school had only been delayed by a half hour. Cut to DC, where they will be closing schools because it’s cold outside.

So it is happening in the capital of our nation in cold blood. And in fairness, the fact that many federal employees are still working from home has eased the paralysis somewhat. Yet a city needs to move in order to function, and this is where the literal achieves something figurative. Long after the snow has melted, 2022 promises to be a year of cold political paralysis. It is a dearth of good political ideas; it is due to a president who seems to get lost regularly on the stairs; but our policy right now seems about as frozen as an unsalted block on Independence Avenue.

Let’s start with the most obvious example, Build Back Better. Joe Biden’s federal shopping spree hit a legislative roadblock just before Christmas when Senator Joe Manchin announced that he could in no way back the $ 1.9 trillion package. And while I’m guessing BBB could still resurrect – remember how Democrats found a way to crash into Obamacare even after Scott Brown replaced Ted Kennedy in Massachusetts – it just doesn’t seem likely that a guy from Virginia -Western is about to come aboard with a huge package of anti-fossil fuels.

Build Back Better seems almost dead. And that means the president is unlikely to rack up another major national achievement. Today, the US government operates roughly like this: one party gains control of the White House and Congress; Knowing that this control will not last, they set to work cramming as many priorities as they can into one or two gigantic and clinically insane packages; these bills pass amid discordant yodelling on cable news; and the public recoils in horror and votes for a divided government halfway through.

For Barack Obama, that meant a stimulus package and Obamacare. For Donald Trump, this meant tax cuts. For Biden, that was meant to mean infrastructure and the BBB, except the latter has failed and those midpoints are getting closer and closer.

BBB’s failure forces a question: What is Biden supposed to do now? Manchin would be willing to negotiate again, but Democrats may not like those chances. Chuck Schumer wants to hold a vote on electoral reform – in which he intends to abolish the Red State’s anti-fraud laws in favor of early voting based on carrier pigeons or whatever – but Republicans will not budge not. A reform of the filibuster is envisaged again, but Manchin and Senator Kyrsten Sinema are both opposed. The court packaging was mocked. Biden’s commitment to personally hand-deliver one and a half Covid test to every American is proving slow and inadequate.

When presidents are stranded at home, they sometimes cast their eyes overseas. Yet until now, Biden’s foreign policy doctrine has mainly consisted of having people in Kabul and Jen Psaki killed by spelling out the words “leadership” and “alliances” with Bananagram letters. I’m the first to admit that it’s not all Biden’s fault. The withdrawal from Afghanistan was negotiated by Donald Trump, and it was a good idea. Attempts to renegotiate the deal with Iran were poisoned by the previous administration’s withdrawal from that deal.

But that doesn’t change the fact that our foreign policy now appears muddled and lifeless. (And it’s not like the Republicans are much better. Faced with Russia’s plan to build its Nord Stream 2 pipeline, Ted Cruz’s new idea is… more sanctions! It will crash Moscow’s bulbs. .)

There is an idea, popular among libertarians, that the best form of government is blocked government, because if the bastards bicker constantly, it keeps them from making mistakes and coercing the rest of us. We’re about to find out just how true this adage is. There is little reason to hope for our coming hilarious annus that the federal government will get our country back on track. This might not be a good thing, but it does raise the question of how we are going to solve our many problems.

The answer, I think, is to look to the local and state levels. It includes innovations such as a grassroots parent movement seeking to improve education and push critical race theory out of public schools. America may be a more nationalized place than it was a century ago, but the usual clichés still apply: Politics is local, Members of Congress bring bacon home, politics is downstream of culture. With Washington frozen over, maybe it’s time we all rediscovered that old fondness for the little one and the near – and took a more neutral look.

The pandemic has changed America in many ways, and one of the major changes is the migration from the states that have most locked down their economies and schools to those that have kept them wide open.

This is the news underreported in the Census Bureau’s state population and internal migration estimates for the past week from July 1, 2020 to July 1, 2021. The data used for this year’s Congressional redistribution was based on the place where people claimed to live on April 1, 2020. But what a difference 15 months of confinements carried out.

Illinois’ population declined by a further 141,039 between spring 2020 and last summer, as 151,512 people online left the state for other states. California lost 300,387 amid a net emigration of 429,283 residents. The biggest loser – you already know – was New York, whose population declined by 365,336 due to an exodus of 406,257.

On the other hand, Texas added 382,436 new residents, including 211,289 from other states. Florida gained 242,941 residents while 263,958 people from other states flocked. Florida’s population growth would have been greater without the high number of Covid deaths, which is the result of its older population. Ditto for Arizona, whose population has increased by 124,814 inhabitants.

The migration from high-tax states to low-tax states, especially those in the Sun Belt, has been going on for more than a decade. But the trend accelerated during the pandemic, as Democratic states tended to impose the most stringent school lockdowns and closures while those ruled by Republicans allowed most businesses and schools to remain open after the end of the year. spring 2020.

California’s net outflows jumped 75% between July 1, 2020 and July 1, 2021 compared to the same period of 2018 to 2019. Emigration from New York has doubled. In contrast, the influx from Texas increased by 40% and that from Florida by more than half. The flight from Illinois also picked up.

For the first time since 2011, Connecticut saw a net increase in migration from other states. This is likely due to the fact that many New York office workers have relocated as Manhattan employers have shifted to remote work. But Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont also pushed for schools to stay open last winter, and he imposed fewer pandemic restrictions than former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The Covid Rational Ground data monitoring team calculated that the 25 states with the most in-person learning in the 2020-2021 school year gained 822,064 people on the net from other states. It is impossible to precisely quantify the cause-and-effect impact of school closings and closures on population migration. But the correlation is clear from the data.

There is also the impact of the tax hike. Although Washington state (which did not have income tax) before the pandemic attracted people from other states, it had a small net outflow last year. Gov. Jay Inslee’s severe lockdowns and school closures are likely the culprits. But the state is not helping by imposing a 7% capital gains tax in excess of $ 250,000 that goes into effect Jan. 1. Remote working has made top earners more mobile, and raising their taxes is fiscally self-destructive.

Mr. Cuomo is the king of self-destruction. In the spring, he signed a law increasing the income tax of individuals earning more than $ 1 million even as tax revenues increased. The state and region’s highest combined rate climbed to 14.8%, from 12.7% for income of more than $ 25 million. Good luck to Eric Adams, the mayor-elect of New York, who is forced to advocate with high incomes to return from Florida.

Many GOP-led states, including Tennessee, Idaho and Arkansas, have cut taxes during the pandemic. More than a dozen like Georgia, Missouri, and West Virginia have also expanded the choice of schools, as have a few Democrat-ruled like Kansas and Pennsylvania.

The pandemic, hopefully, is a once in a lifetime event. It has caused enormous social and economic upheaval, as well as population displacements that will not be repeated every year. Yet it has also accentuated the distinction between Republican lawmakers who strive to protect individual freedom, even in times of crisis, and Democrats who impose more government control.

Differences in policies and political values ​​will not diminish with the virus, and census data clearly shows which side wins the competition for talent and taxpayers.

Khartoum – Watching the migration of birds is one of the best tourist attractions. Bird hunting and photography are also fascinating tourist pastimes.

Sudan is considered a great bird garden, host to countless varieties and species of birds. However, according to Wikipedia, the birdlife of Sudan comprises a total of 634 species.

The birds of Sudan have always been part of the country’s heritage, a source of inspiration for poets and artists.

Almost all Sudanese here have been and continue to be moved by Salah Ahmed Ibrahim’s poem “Migrating Birds”, performed by the late great artist Mohammad Wardi, and has continued to be sung or broadcast for decades.

The song Rahaw Birds (Anthropoides virgo), performed by the late artist Hamad Alrayyah, has also captivated souls for generations.

Several other songs, describing (and glorifying) different types of birds and equating loved ones to them, are also part of the country’s artistic heritage. We have songs for birds: albaloam (paloma colombe), altair alkudari (abyssinian roll), bulbul, alhamam (pigeon) etc … etc.

This craze for birds could also be the reason why Sudan chose the Jidyan falcon (secretary-bird) as the country’s official emblem.

This great status of birds in Sudanese life, added to the great avian wealth of the country, can constitute a great tourist and economic potential.

The growing craze for birds prompted a group of young men and women to start a birding club as the first such organization in the country.

To get a glimpse of this wonderful initiative, Sudanow spoke with the club president, Mr. Mohammad Abdelhafeez, who said: The Birds Watchers Club is an organization that deals with the protection of birds and the promotion of bird watching facilities. It was also concerned with the conservation of bird habitat

The club was launched and officially registered with the National Council for Culture and the Arts in 2016 as the first specialized club of its kind in Sudan.

Mr. Mohammad Abdelhafeez

The idea emerged to a group of young people after seeing similar clubs in some countries.

Due to the desire of these young people to copy these experiences, given the vast potential of birds from Sudan, these young people started the experiment.

The group, made up of wildlife and bird lovers, includes: Mohammad Abelhafeez, Marwa Alhaj, Awad Siddiq, Hind Mekki, Alfatih Ibrahim and Mubarak Mohammad.

The Club also welcomes researchers of different specializations, professionals and amateurs.

Organizations related to the study of birds, animals and wildlife and press men were also rallied, always keeping in mind the vast biodiversity of Sudan.

Mr Mohammad also said their main concern was birds, raising them, protecting them and protecting them from poaching.

The idea is also to promote the means of observing birds, the conservation of their environment and awareness of the need to protect birds and to encourage young people and amateurs to take a break in front of the beauty of the world of birds. and attract tourists to see Sudan’s rich birdlife and encourage researchers to study them.

Studies are also aimed at protecting birds and contributing to the documentation of the natural history of Sudan and its game reserves.

The objective is also to encourage the launching of zoos in the various cities of Sudan through the initiation of regional branch committees of the Club.

The Club is also keen to forge links with regional and international bodies active in this field. In this, he has a lot of domestic and foreign participation in related events.

Through its specialized memberships, the Club monitors the annual migration of birds to and from Sudan.

It also celebrates World Migratory Bird Day, May 14, and is strictly committed to global bird migration charters and agreements.

This is in line with Sudan’s committed memberships to relevant international organizations. In this, the Club is also a signatory of the

Ramsar Convention on the Conservation of Earth and Wetlands.

The Club plays a big role in spreading awareness on the need to control agricultural pests and to explain the role of birds in pest control. For this, it has concluded an agreement with the Ministry of Agriculture. A memorandum of understanding has been signed with the Ministry of Energy to maintain the safety of migratory birds when crossing high-voltage power lines and another with the aviation authorities to avoid collisions between birds and planes.

The Club launches exhibitions and publishes educational bulletins on the life and conservation of birds. It also organizes field trips to see and count birds, with the aim of alleviating bird shortages in some areas and avoiding environmental deficiencies in those places, keeping in mind that birds are among the most crucial elements of ecological balance.

All this is done under the Club’s motto: No to poaching, No to deforestation. The second slogan is that forests are the natural habitats of birds which, if destroyed, will cease to exist.

Part of the Club’s activity is its current engagement in holding training courses and workshops and conducting field trips to familiarize themselves with the birds available, how they can be counted and watched and also to see their gathering places in forests and valleys, their migratory routes and to conduct research to know endangered species in order to protect them.

Mr. Mohammad also says that birds contribute a lot to the economies of many countries.

Individuals also benefit a lot from the production of poultry: chickens, geese and ducks. The same goes for raising quails for their meat.

Some Sudanese bird species produce excellent types of feathers and eggs which are used as ornaments and decorations, like those of ostriches.
