US Poultry Entering China Without Retaliatory Tariffs

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News US Poultry Entering China Without Retaliatory Tariffs Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE By NAFB News Service – Mar 8, 2020 Beijing recently made U.S. poultry shipments eligible for exemptions from extra tariffs and poultry shipments to China are on the rise.A Reuters article points out that the additional tariff relief may give China a greater ability to follow through on promises to buy significantly more American agricultural goods as part of the Phase One trade deal.U.S. chicken producer Tyson Foods says its chicken shipments are already rising as a result. China had said last month it would grant exemptions on retaliatory duties to 696 U.S. goods as part of its efforts to ease the trade war between the two largest economies in the world.Jim Sumner, President of the USA Poultry and Egg Export Council, says U.S. poultry wasn’t eligible for the exemptions until last week. “We’re now getting the product into the country without any retaliatory tariffs,” Sumner says.Global meat and poultry suppliers are competing for sales to China, where an African Swine Fever outbreak has trimmed the hog herd by more than 40 percent, raising the need for protein imports.Beijing removed an almost five-year ban on U.S. poultry imports in November, which U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer says would mean an additional $1 billion in shipments to China every year. “We’re now on a level playing field with other poultry suppliers to China,” Sumner adds.

Fort Worth ISD honors teachers of the year

first_imgprintFort Worth’s superintendent told a room full of teachers Tuesday they were the model for improving the district.“We’re trying to replicate what’s happening in your classrooms across the district,” Dr. Kent Scribner said. “We want your colleagues, your brothers and sisters to believe in that.”Scribner helped honor 132 teachers at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas. Each teacher had been selected as their campuses’ “teacher of the year” by their peers.“I just believe that my job as a leader is not to create followers, but rather to create leaders and empower you to lead as teacher leaders in your schools,” Scribner told the crowd.It was Scribner’s first chance to hand out the awards since taking over as superintendent in October. In addition to handing out door prizes, a $1,000 travel voucher, a wine party, a free year-long lease on a new Nissan and more, Scribner detailed some of his plans for improving student learning through the district’s 6,500 teachers.“Fort Worth ISD is not in need of another program,” he said. “We have plenty of programs. What we are in need of is effective implementation of the programs that we have.”Ten finalists for the elementary and secondary District Teacher of the Year awards were also announced. Two winners will be selected by members of the school district and the community. Clayton is a senior journalism major from Mesquite, Texas. He’s worked at The Dallas Morning News and PolitiFact in Washington, D.C. He holds the all-time record for highest batting average at his high school after he hit a single in his only at-bat during his senior season.

(OTCQB: GTHP), the maker of a rapid and painless testing platform based on its patented biophotonic technology, announced today that it has thus far raised a total of US $1.1 million under the terms of a Series F Preferred Stock Offering. The private placement offering targeted at least U.S. $1 million and the financing can continue to raise additional funds until closing this tranche, forecast for later this month. As specified by terms of the investment, proceeds from the Series F Financing were to make the final payment of $750,000 due to GPB Holdings, LLC and to conduct the Company sponsored U.S. FDA clinical trial this year for its flagship product the LuViva Advanced Cervical Scan. The final payment was made to GPB on January 9, 2021, which satisfied the security lien on the Company’s assets and removed over $5 million in liabilities from the Company’s balance sheet. Completing enrollment in the FDA study this year is the Company’s most critical milestone and funds from the Series F Financing, cash on hand and revenues from existing purchase orders will be used to complete enrollment in the FDA study. The Series F Preferred shares are convertible at a fixed price of 25 cents per share, carry a 6% annual dividend and could potentially include an additional dividend of 15% after twelve months if the Company is unable to uplist to a national exchange or complete its FDA study. The dividends can be paid in cash or common shares at the option of the Company. Aspen Capital acted as Financial Advisor to the Company with respect to the private placement. “In 2020 we identified making the final payment to GPB and completing the FDA study as necessary to the existence and significant growth of our Company. We are extremely pleased that we have been able to raise sufficient funds for these purposes, pending the final closing of the Series F financing,” said Gene Cartwright, Guided Therapeutics CEO. “Since we have reached agreement with the FDA regarding the study protocol, we are now engaged with clinical study centers that will enroll their patients in our study and are actively building clinical trial devices. It is now full speed ahead with the study.” About Guided Therapeutics Guided Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: GTHP) is the maker of a rapid and painless testing platform based on its patented biophotonic technology that utilizes light for the early detection of disease at the cellular level. The Company’s first product is the LuViva® Advanced Cervical Scan, a non-invasive device used to detect cervical disease instantly and at the point of care.

Utilities offer safety advice in face of high winds, heavy rains

first_imgCentral Vermont Public Service and Green Mountain Power are advising customers in the southern half of Vermont of the potential for significant wind and heavy rain damage that could cause extensive damage and power outages this evening and into Friday. Customers across the state could see scattered power outages this afternoon and into Friday.Utility forecasts include the threat of high wind gusts of more than 50 mph, combined with several inches of rain, which could cause significant power outages in the southern half of Vermont and eastern slopes of the Green Mountains.Utility crews are on standby and are contacting outside contract crews to ensure a strong response if the wind and rain bring significant problems. Government officials are also coordinating efforts to assure the necessary resources are available.CVPS and GMP urged customers to be sure to have flashlights, batteries, food and water available in case they lose electrical service, and suggested that friends, family and neighbors check on elderly Vermonters who may need help.  Candles are not recommended as light sources during a power outage due to fire risk.The utilities offered the following advice:Before outages occur, be sure you have a phone that is hard-wired and does not rely on electricity.Fill a bathtub with water before you lose service so the water can be used to flush toilets when the power is out. PREVENT UNSUPERVISED BATHROOM ACCESS TO CHILDREN.Treat any downed line as if it is live.  Report the line to your local utility and fire department, stay at least 50 feet away from the line, and keep children and pets away as well.If using a generator, read and follow the owner’s manual before starting the generator.  Never operate a generator inside any structure or near a structure.  Use a transfer switch to ensure electricity is not accidentally fed onto a line where line crews must work.Keep freezers and refrigerators closed as much as possible to prevent food spoilage.If power goes out, turn off all electrical appliances except one light so you’ll know when service returns.  Then, turn equipment back on slowly.Never use grills inside for warmth, as the fumes can be poisonous.  Source: GMP, CVPS. 9.30.2010last_img read more

The power of persuasion

first_imgIf there is one ability every leader wants, it’s the power to persuade others – to convincingly, and logically, describe an idea and have it resonate with an audience.I’ve been a lobbyist for more than 25 years, and my entire career has been built around the art and science of persuasion. I have watched and learned from many leaders on how they influence various outcomes and even had some as all-important mentors. To persuade and influence others take practice and experience.Many successful leaders have this ability.’s Jeff Haden talks about this in a recent article by noting nine ways to be more influential and persuasive. Here are a few of his ideas:– Start by gaining small “wins.” Don’t jump right to your end game. Start with a statement or proposal that you know others will like and accept.– Take strong stands. Haden says people prefer advice from someone who is confident – even if not everything said is perfectly accurate. continue reading » 59SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
