  • DR Congo appeal to Rwandan fighters to return home is working UN

    Alan Doss, Special Representative of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, cites the additional 335 Rwandan nationals who agreed to be returned to Rwanda since the start of this month.There has also been a slow but steady flow of combatants leaving the ranks of the ethnic Hutu militia known as the Democratic Liberation Forces of Rwanda (FDLR), which has been the target of a joint military operation conducted by Rwanda and the DRC, Mr. Doss added.“These surrenders, which are being recorded every day, are proof that our message of disarmament and return in dignity is continuing to be heard. We encourage other FDLR troops to follow the same path,” he said.The ex-combatants surrender to joint patrols of the UN Mission in the DRC (MONUC) and the DRC Armed Forces (FARDC), while civilians are repatriated by the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).The voluntary disarmament, demobilization, repatriation, reintegration and rehabilitation (DDRRR) programme for the ex-militia is managed by MONUC.The FDLR and other Rwandan militias have been a key factor in the resurgence of violence last August in North Kivu province, where some 250,000 civilians have been uprooted by fighting. 10 March 2009The appeal to Rwandan rebels in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) to return home is having a positive impact on peace and security in the strife-torn area, the United Nations’ top envoy there said today. read more

  • Deloitte forecasts flat oil prices through end of 2017

    Get ready for more volatility on the oil markets.That’s the word from Deloitte’s latest price forecast which calls for WTI Crude to stay around US$48 per barrel for the rest of the year, despite more ups and downs.Deloitte’s Andrew Botterill said companies needed to get their house in order during the downturn and made a lot of changes. Now there are a lot of producers trying to drill.“They’re trying to create value in their companies and that’s creating some competition and a little bit of a tough balance of people going out and drilling and at the same time a little bit lower demand out there,” he said, adding the extra competition will heighten volatility.This comes despite the OPEC cuts and Botterill explained at the end of the day, the U.S. will always put more supply into the market than Canada by virtue of it’s size.“We’re in direct competition with the United States and they’re out there drilling their very best plays,” he said. “When there’s opportunities like this and a little bit of stability companies are going out and drilling their very best.”There are some plays in Canada which are attracting investment but Botterill believes companies that can’t handle the volatility will likely be more cautious.The early year stability also lead to more mergers and acquisitions.“There’s a lot of transformation that’s going to go on in the sector in consolidation and more companies trying to manage their costs through scale, so I think the M&A sector is still going to be quite robust for the last half of the year,” he said.But after the ups and downs of the last six weeks, expect companies to be more cautious in everything they do.Either way, for now at least, more drilling means more jobs.

  • UK automotive careers showcased during National Apprenticeship Week

    Prime Minister David Cameron marked the start of National Apprentice Week with a visit to Mercedes-Benz’s £2.1 million Apprentice Academy in Tongwell, Milton Keynes. Mr Cameron heard first-hand about the benefits of being part of the apprenticeship programme, which leads to nationally-recognised NVQ and VRQ qualifications.Since opening in 1995, 1,148 apprentices have graduated from the Mercedes-Benz Apprentice Academy, with 60% of those who graduated still working within the brand 10 years later.Prime Minister David Cameron said, “Apprenticeships are at the heart of our mission to rebuild the economy, giving young people the chance to learn a trade and create a truly world class workforce that can compete and thrive in the global race.”UK automotive’s celebration of apprenticeships continued on Monday with the announcement that Ford is to invest £250,000 in the recruitment of up to 50 additional apprentices for its UK network of Commercial Vehicle (CV) dealerships this year.In their role as CV Sales Executive Apprentices, participants in the programme will gain extensive knowledge of Ford’s vehicle product range and become skilled in selling techniques, finance and vehicle appraisals.Stuart Harris, Ford College Manager said, “Ford’s dealership network recruits more than 500 apprentices every year, making it one of the largest recruiters of apprentices in the motor industry.”Stressing the importance of apprenticeships in the retail motor industry, the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) called on young people to take a fresh look at the sector and the opportunities available. The retail motor industry encompasses the distribution, sale, financing and maintenance of every kind of vehicle ranging from cars and motorcycles, through to vans and trucks.Steve Nash, the IMI’s Chief Executive said, “The automotive retail sector continues to play a significant role in the UK economy, so it is essential that it attracts suitably qualified young people and equips them with the skills for future success.”On Wednesday evening, Bentley Motors apprentices Matthew Speck and Ellen James were recognised for their achievements at a reception hosted by the Deputy Prime Minister to celebrate apprenticeships and showcase the contribution they make to the economy.Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said, “I was delighted to welcome these outstanding apprentices to Admiralty House. It’s clear they are making a valuable contribution and their hard work now will no doubt set them up for a bright future.”A seminar and reception at SMMT on Monday evening celebrated the automotive sector’s commitment to skills and training. Jack Stearn, a 20-year-old engineering apprentice at Vauxhall told an audience at the joint SMMT and Semta event of his experiences and ambitions.Sharing a platform with industry experts and stakeholders, Jack was joined at the reception by Business Secretary Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP who made the keynote address.Business Secretary, Dr Vince Cable MP said, “Companies in the automotive sector have long recognised the value of offering apprenticeships and have a proud record of putting young people on exciting and rewarding career paths.”Commenting on the opportunities for apprentices in the automotive industry, Mike Baunton, SMMT Interim Chief Executive said, “There has never been a better time to consider a career in the motor industry and this event highlights the long-term benefits and rewards that can be gained from joining the already 700,000-strong automotive workforce.”National Apprenticeship Week took place from 11-15 March, celebrating apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the economy.

  • Find His Porn app exposes your lewd computing deeds

    first_imgComputer-using men everywhere be afraid. Find His Porn has launched and it threatens to expose your dirty habits to a significant other.Just launch your web browser, head over to the website, pay the $20 fee, and Find His Porn begins scouring the computer for a lascivious web history, images, and videos. Its creators claim it to be the only tool that features such an advanced algorithm for uncovering porn on a computer — and they stand by its abilities by not offering a money-back guarantee. If it’s there, the app will find it, they say. And if it finds porn once and you want to check again later, you’ll be coughing up an additional $20. Don’t worry about your purchases giving away your snooping. Find His Porn shows up as a nondescript PayPal charge on your credit card statement.Curiously, although it’s a Java app, Find His Porn only runs on Windows computers. Those of you looking to escape its probing might want to set up a Linux dual-boot — or better yet, password protect your system if you really want to safeguard your privacy. And if you’re running this to check up on little Johnny, I suggest you look into a filtering solution like OpenDNS.According to the website, it’s the perfect app to spy on boyfriends, husbands, and kids. When should you run it? “If you think he’s hiding something, now’s probably a good time,” the site says.I’m no Dr. Phil, but I’m thinking that talking about this kind of thing is probably a better idea, and that you’re headed down a slippery slope the minute you fire up a privacy-violating app like this. Amazingly, the Find His Porn site is emblazoned with Privacy Partnership emblems — even though it’s offering a tool which is designed to violate a person’s privacy.Interestingly, there’s no companion site for Find Her Porn…because presumably there’s never been a man who wanted to do the same kind of snooping on woman’s computer.More at Find His Pornlast_img read more

  • Microsoft unboxes an Xbox Design Lab controller

    first_imgOne of the coolest announcements Microsoft made during E3 2016 was for the Xbox Design Lab. Through this site, consumers are able to design their very own custom-built Xbox One controller. The website went live shortly after the event, allowing folks to design all sorts of unique looking controllers. The controllers won’t begin to ship out to consumers until September, but a new video from Xbox Design Labs shows us what to expect when they arrive.Xbox Design Lab controllers are based off the updated version of the Xbox One controller that will launch alongside the Xbox One S. Though the overall design isn’t radically different from that of the launch Xbox controller, it does have some subtle alterations that make it a better product. The surface of the handles feature more grip, the trigger buttons now have better padding and response, and the controller no longer creaks when you pull the sides in different directions. Best of all, the controller features built-in Bluetooth, meaning that you won’t have to use the Xbox external Bluetooth thumbstick when playing on PC.The process for designing a controller is straightforward. When you head over to the Xbox Design Lab site, you’ll be presented with a 3D model of an Xbox controller that you can re-color with 15 different shades to choose from. You can change the color of the body, bumpers and triggers, D-pad, analog sticks, face buttons, view and menu buttons, and the back of the controller. This costs $79.99, and for another $9.99, you can even have something engraved on the base of the controller.It takes about two weeks for one’s controller to be made, so if you want yours by September, you may want to head over to the Xbox Design Lab site and create yours now. For more details, head over to Windows Central. And if you want check out Geek.com’s own custom Xbox Controller, feast your eyes on Purple Reign! The box is nice. It comes with the gamepad and two AA batteries. Nothing else.<><>last_img read more

  • Insane 5G speeds mean you may hit your data cap in a

    first_img 2 minutes 15 seconds Mentioned Above Samsung Galaxy S10 (128GB, prism black) Review • Galaxy S10 review: As good as the S10 Plus, in a smaller package 485Mbps 5G has been hailed as the next big tech revolution, powering everything from self-driving cars to smart farming equipment. The technology, which promises a faster, smarter and more responsive network, has begun its protracted launch throughout Australia. As with 5G in the UK, there’s only one carrier that offers working mobile 5G servers so far: Telstra. (Optus, a competing carrier, is also rolling out 5G, but in the form of home broadband connections.) My sitting on a park bench in Randwick, four miles away from my office, isn’t an accident. I’ve come here because there are only a handful of suburbs in Sydney where 5G is accessible, and Randwick is one of them. The stakes for 5G are particularly high in Australia, where we have world-class 4G and third-world broadband. Our state-run National Broadband Network has been an ongoing catastrophe for a decade, costing more than originally anticipated and delivering slower speeds than originally promised. It’s such a problem that there’s an argument that 5G could actually be a tenable replacement for broadband. Technically speaking, we’re now in the 5G era. In the US, Sprint and Verizon already offer 5G phones like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. Also like Telstra, the coverage is limited — our Speedtest.net download speeds for AT&T went above 1.7Gbps, with coverage limited to small business zones — yet expanding. Here in Australia, both LG’s V50, Samsung’s S10 5G and the Oppo Reno 5G are tickets to the mobile internet of tomorrow. But the key word here is “tomorrow.” Telstra stats 5G cities today: Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Toowoomba, Launceston, Melbourne, Hobart, Gold Coast, Canberra, Brisbane 5G phones: LG V50 ThinQ, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, Oppo Reno 5G Coverage area: Telstra says there will be a 2-kilometer (1.2-mile) coverage area in each capital city’s central business district by the end of June. Telstra expects its coverage area to increase “almost fivefold” and reach “at least” 35 cities by June 2020. Map showing Telstra's 5G coverage as of the end of May 2019Telstra’s 5G coverage in Sydney as of the end of May. Telstra Map showing Telstra's planned 5G coverage by the end of June 2019Here’s what coverage will look like by the end of June. Telstra says its coverage around the country will increase fivefold by June 2020. Telstra As of late May, there are a handful of areas in Sydney that are 5G-certified, according to Telstra. I tried three of them — the suburbs of Randwick (east), Mosman (north) and Broadway (central) — using both the LG V50 ThinQ and Oppo’s Reno 5G. Tests results delivered promising speed, but there are issues that need to be addressed. First, let’s look at the good stuff. Using the Speedtest.net app, I was able to record nippy speeds of 500Mbps in both Mosman and Randwick. In Randwick, I got a 485Mbps download, 63Mbps upload, whereas Mosman’s network offered 489Mbps down, 64.3 up. For comparison, the average 4G speed in Australia is 37Mbps download and 8.2Mbps upload. So, on paper, Telstra’s 5G’s download speeds hit 13 times the national average and its upload speeds, seven times the average. How does that translate to downloading actual files? Inconsistency. In Randwick I downloaded PUBG in 54 seconds using the LG V50. PUBG weighs in at 2.04GB, so that’s roughly a gigabyte per 27 seconds. The Oppo Reno 5G was slightly slower, taking 81 seconds. Wine Country, a movie starring Amy Poehler, downloaded from Netflix in 92 and 85 seconds on the V50 and Reno 5G, respectively. For comparison, I connected the LG V50, which tended to have slightly faster download speeds, to my home broadband. I have a 100Mbps download plan, which is the best you can get in Australia. It took 5 minutes, 55 seconds to download PUBG and 110 seconds to download Wine Country. We’re not in the promised land yet, though. We’re very much in the early days of 5G, meaning there are significant teething issues. When it comes to 4G versus 5G, Netflix seems to be immune to 5G power. At Broadway, a region near Sydney’s central business district, my Optus 4G-connected iPhone XS Max downloaded Wine Country in 2 minutes and 10 seconds — 9 seconds faster than the Oppo Reno 5G (but slower than 5G on the LG V50). Even stranger, the LG V50 downloaded the movie in 66 seconds using Optus 4G at my home compared to 75 seconds at Broadway using Telstra 5G. PUBG, on the other hand, was faster across the board on 5G. I assumed Netflix’s Australian servers had yet to be optimized for 5G, but Netflix told me this was not the case.  Taking 4G out of the equation, 5G is inconsistent. The peak speeds are enticing, but there’s a huge chasm between them and the average. For instance, in Mosman, where the peak hit 489Mbps, walking one block south dropped download speeds to 289Mbps. In Randwick the results range was greater, topping at 485Mbps but also going as low as 92Mbps. (Uploads hovered between 40 and 65Mbps.) Broadway fared far worse. There I ran five SpeedTest.net tests, and two hit over 100Mbps down (162, 155) while three, run about two blocks away, hovered around 50Mbps (55, 55, 49). Upload speeds ranged from 36Mbps in the first area and 56Mbps in the better-connected zone. opporeno5g-speedtest-01Testing 5G in Broadway. Ian Knighton/CNET There’s a silver lining here, though. PUBG, still 2.04GB, downloaded in 1 minute 58 seconds on the Oppo Reno in the Broadway area where I hit 150Mbps in Speedtest.net. That’s 37 seconds slower than in Randwick, but still dramatically faster than using broadband. It took 5 minutes and 57 seconds to download the game using the office Wi-Fi. But of course, there’s the issue of how limited 5G areas are at the moment. You really do need to go out of your way to find yourself in a 5G zone. So really, it’s time to play the waiting game. Blazing fast internet is great — but it’s not worth investing too heavily in it until coverage is consistent and widespread. Right now, 5G is accessible, and it’s a thrill to see such breakneck download speeds, but coverage isn’t wide enough to make it truly useful.

Let’s pretend 5G coverage is widespread. There are still two concerns. The peak speeds, just below 500Mbps, are incredible. They’re over 10 times faster than Telstra’s (already excellent) average 4G speeds, and roughly five times faster than Australia’s broadband network. So yes, the speeds are futuristic — but they’re not what we’ve been promised. Telstra’s ads and tech demos in recent weeks have shown 5G phones hitting 1.5 and even 2Gbps-plus speeds. Telstra has added the caveat that these speeds are faster than what we can expect out in the real world, but there is quite a gulf between 500Mbps and 2Gbps. What’s more, the speeds promised or advertised by 5G industry figures in recent years are in the 20 to 30Gbps range. Just like widespread 5G connectivity seems a way off, so too do the promised peak speeds. It feels petty to complain about speeds as fast as 489Mbps, regarding a network that’s not yet completely developed, simply because they’re not what we’ve been sold. But keep in mind that a 5G upgrade isn’t free, or even cheap. You’ll have to shell out a few hundred extra bucks for a 5G phone, and in the US both Sprint and Verizon only offer 5G on their pricier plans. In fairness to Telstra, it will offer 5G for free for the next 12 months, during which time infrastructure will be developed and rolled out. However, June 2020 will bring a $10 5G fee (AU$15). If you’re paying 5G prices, it’s fair to expect true 5G performance. 1:27 Oppo Reno 5G (Randwick, Telstra) CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Testing 5G in Randwick, Sydney.

As noted, Randwick was my first testing location. About 25 minutes in, after several speed tests, downloading PUBG and two movies from Netflix, I got an SMS. “You’ve used 50% of your 20GB data allowance,” Telstra warned me. Uh oh. The SIM card I was using was loaned to me by Telstra for testing, but 20GB isn’t an unusually small amount. Telstra’s fattest data plan offers 150GB for $70 (AU$100) a month, but the average Australian has a 10GB data limit, according to a 2018 Finder study. Most plans in Australia give you between 10 and 50GB of data. In the US, “unlimited” data plans tend to include up to about 75GB, or 100GB for Sprint’s priciest plan, before internet speeds are throttled. It will be impossible to burn through 50GB, let alone 150GB, just by using social media, answering emails and streaming YouTube on 4G. But with 5G speed comes incentive to, y’know, use 5G. When 5G speeds outpace home broadband by a significant margin, data will have to become cheaper for those blazing speeds to be convenient and truly useful.  Yes, 5G is here. It’s exciting. But just know the party only really starts once coverage is wider and data plans become bigger or, ideally, actually unlimited.

  • AL unlikely to pick sympathy vote seeker

    first_imgThe ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) will not pick anyone based on emotion to contest the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) polls, party chief, prime minister Sheikh Hasina told the cabinet meeting on Thursday.As the mayoral position fell vacant with the death of Annisul Huq, the prime minister and AL president, Sheikh Hasina, dropped the hint of not giving nomination to someone who would be an ‘emotional candidate’.Sources in the cabinet said Sheikh Hasina expressed her opinion that people would vote for a qualified candidate, and the nomination would be given on the basis of credentials of the candidate.The sources, however, could not confirm whether the prime minister did reject the possibility of choosing someone from the family of late Annisul Huq.“Politics is politics. There should be no room for emotion here,” Hasina was quoted to have said.A few ministers, when asked, could not confirm if the party would refrain from nominating a candidate from the family of the late mayor, who could potentially secure sympathy votes.There are speculations that either his wife or son might have been chosen as the candidate. Annisul’s widow Rubana Huq, however, requested the media not to publicise their names as possible candidates.The ruling party is yet to hold formal discussion on the possible candidates for the DNCC mayoral by-poll, party leaders said on Thursday. No meeting of the party’s nomination board was convened either.The AL is to make up its mind on whether to nominate from the party’s mainstream leaders or from the technocrats somehow affiliated with the party, like that of Annisul Huq.AL general secretary Obaidul Quader said at a press conference on Wednesday that the party was considering some names that could secure the win in the election.”We’re also considering candidates who have faith in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and his ideals. Such candidate can be nominated from outside the party as well,” he added.Asked about picking a candidate from family members of Annisul Huq, he said they were still mourning his death. He asked everyone to stay away from them at this stage.Party insiders said party men, pro-AL film stars, businessman and civil society actors have already shown their interests to get the ticket of the ruling party.AL presidium member Faruque Khan who was the coordinator of the DNCC polls in 2015, said formal process of nominating mayoral candidates has not started yet. “Anyone who will be able to pursue the late mayors development goals and who have the popularity would be chosen,” he added.Expressing his interest to vie for the mayoral post, AL’s Dhaka north city unit secretary general Sadek Khan told Prothom Alo that he was a councillor of Dhaka city corporation for three times. He said he also discharge the duty of mayor as a panel mayor.Actress and former AL MP Sarah Begum Kabori had submitted nomination paper as a mayor candidate in the 2015 DNCC polls, but had to withdraw her nomination on party chief Sheikh Hasinas instruction.She hopes that party chief Hasina would give her the mayoral nomination this time around.last_img read more

As early as this year, a pair of anonymous astronauts may make the first civilian trek around the far side of our natural satellite. From there, it’s a bit hard to see Musk or SpaceX slowing down.Launch auto-sequence initiated (aka the holy mouse-click) for 3:45 liftoff #FalconHeavy— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 6, 2018This launch has been a long time coming, too. Early complications with the reusable Falcon 9s resulted in damage to one of the most important launch pads at Cape Canaveral. On top of that, as Musk himself has often lamented — strapping three rockets together wasn’t quite as easy as the team had hoped. The way the forces interact, and the strain of keeping all of the rocket nozzles pointing in the exact right place, plus the aerodynamic strain on the connections between rocket cores all add up to a monumental challenge for even the best engineers.“Space is hard.”An old rocket scientists’ maxim, “Space is hard,” often reflects the paradoxical nature of space flight. On the one hand, it’s simple. Put a heavy thing in the sky. Not a lot of steps. But, unfortunately, when you’re fighting against a planet’s worth of gravity, things get really complicated — and hard — really damn fast. But today, SpaceX managed to pull off one of the most challenging flights in history. Made all the more complicated by SpaceX’s impressive attempt to recover as many of the Falcon Heavy pieces as possible. That, more so than the strength or power or rarity of a launch like this is the game changer.When stuff is hard, it’s usually pretty damned expensive to pull off. Whether it’s brain surgery, a giant dam, or spaceflight. But Musk and SpaceX’s signature innovation has been their ability to recover significant pieces of the rocket after launch. This lets them recycle giant machines that often rival the height of the Statue of Liberty. Yeah, the fuel for a launch is expensive, as is the launch pad and everything else that goes into it, but what really costs the big bucks is making the ginormous structures and vehicles required. It’s not quite known yet just how successful SpaceX has been today in recovering their trio of Falcon 9 rocket cores. The primary boosters made it back to their pads perfectly, but the central rocket has not yet been confirmed to land on its drone ship in the Atlantic. This is an unqualified and mind-blowing success and marks the very first time anything like this has happened. When the Saturn V took American astronauts to the surface of the Moon, it just didn’t bother with any of the recycling malarkey. Using raw might and millions of pounds of rocket fuel just to get those intrepid explorers into the inky black of space. Today, though marks the first steps humanity has taken not just towards a new future, but an interplanetary one.Topping it all, with that classic, Muskian braggadocio, as the Musk’s Tesla whips around our solar system at many thousands of miles an hour, it will play “Space Oddity” on repeat. And I can think of no greater honor for Major Tom than this ridiculous, bombastic send-off.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

  • Why and How California Is Destroying Mountains of Weed

    first_imgFlow Kana saw the deadline coming and prepared as best they could. “We have product that has not made its way through our processing system that is still OK,” says Cate Powers of Flow Kana. It’ll run the safety gauntlet on its way to market. “So the majority of our inventory is fine. It’s only the stuff that was packaged and processed under the previous standards that is at risk.”Dispensaries statewide rushed to offload product with massive sales in the weeks leading up to July 1. But you can only offload so much weed. “Sacramento is seeing possibly up to 8,000 pounds of product that will need to be destroyed,” says Josh Drayton, spokesperson for the California Cannabis Industry Association. In the Los Angeles area—which houses the largest marijuana consumer base in the world—the number could run into the tens of thousands of pounds.Really, it’s hard to tell for sure just how much cannabis is going to waste. Not all dispensaries have finished the licensing process. It’s not that dispensaries think they can hide off the grid—the transition to legal recreational cannabis is still unfolding. Accordingly, data is hard to come by. That’ll change as the supply chain matures, as marijuana is more strictly tracked from seed to sale. Which means an interesting trash day. “Noncompliant flower and prerolls will be composted,” says Eliot Dobris, spokesperson for Apothecarium. That is, rendered “unusable” by putting it in filthy, locked bins the public doesn’t have access to. Oils for vape pens go through an extra step. “Noncompliant cartridges will be rendered unusable with a hammer and then will be put in the landfill bin,” he says. “And we have to do all of this on video,” Dobris adds, “so if there’s ever a question, the state can have access to that video.”The headaches are making their way upstream as well. The legal recreational cannabis supply chain, which packages and distributes product, is just coming into being. Flow Kana, for instance, is a cannabis brand that takes in marijuana from Northern California farmers and processes and tests it in accordance with the new laws. Call it the California Marijuanapocalypse of 2018. As of January 1, recreation cannabis has been legal in the state. A black market still runs underneath it all (Northern California alone supplies perhaps 75 percent of all marijuana across the United States), but cultivators and distributors are going legit, bringing themselves up to the rigorous testing and packaging standards mandated by the state.This weekend, though, was a weekend of reckoning. For the first six months of the year, the state has allowed dispensaries to sell product that isn’t yet up to new code so manufacturers can adjust to the changes. Any of these noncompliant concentrates or edibles or simple flowers left on store shelves as of July 1 have to be destroyed. By one estimate, that could total $350 million in lost product.So how exactly do you obliterate potentially tens of thousands of pounds of cannabis across the state? Not unlike how you get rid of yard trimmings.The responsibility for destroying noncompliant cannabis products rests on the dispensaries, not the state—the government won’t be dispatching special trucks to pick up weed. So for a dispensary like the Apothecarium in San Francisco, it’s got to pull noncompliant marijuana immediately. And the waste wasn’t for lack of trying on the cannabis industry’s part. “They’ve been having to multitask on many different levels,” says Drayton, “to build out business plans in municipalities that are allowing cannabis activities, they’ve needed to learn new compliance with staffing, with payroll.”In the end, Californians want legal weed, which is why they voted for Prop 64. What they may not have realized is that the transition from elicit to legal comes with challenges that include the California Marijuanapocalypse of 2018. “We have to remember that yes, that is going to be a growing pain we are going to have to deal with,” says Drayton. “But ultimately Prop 64 passed through wanting to prioritize public safety and public health.” The alternative is illegal, dirty cannabis that threatens not just people, but wildlife too.California will get through this. Dispensary inventories might be low in the coming weeks as newly compliant products make their way onto shelves, but the market will even out as the industry adjusts to change. And on top of it all, the state is about to get a healthy helping of extra compost.

  • New fusion cuisine flourishes in Baja California

    first_img Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Great food is not the first thing that comes to mind when people think of the sprawling, dusty border city of 1.6 million people across from San Diego. Tijuana was once known for its souvenir shopping and cheap good times in border bars, then more recently for gruesome drug violence among cartels warring for the lucrative transport route at the busiest U.S.-Mexico border crossing.Many of its restaurants had closed as the killings escalated, hitting 800 murders in the year 2007 and making Tijuana one of Mexico’s most dangerous cities. That all but shut down cross-border tourism and forced the closure of restaurants including the famous Caesar’s, where restaurateur and Italian immigrant Caesar Cardini invented the salad of whole romaine leaves, garlic, Worcestershire sauces, raw eggs and parmesan cheese back in the 1920s.The violence has since subsided _ some say because of a police purge, others say because one cartel managed to dominate the region. Either way, tourism is starting to return and even Caesar’s reopened in 2010.The mix of people who live in the state also accounts for the fusion of flavors. Half of the 3.5 million there are natives of other states of Mexico, where they mix with first- and second-generation families from Asia, Europe and the U.S. The movement has resulted in dozens of restaurants that are helping to pull a new kind of tourist to the beleaguered border city _ one who enjoys great food and art rather than a brothel and a cheap drunk. People attending conventions in San Diego think of crossing the border for dinner in Tijuana, said Javier Plascencia, the chef of Mision 19, whose quest to put his city on the culinary map was the subject of a New Yorker magazine profile earlier this year.Baja Med mixes uniquely Mexican ingredients such as chicharron and cotija cheese with lemon grass and olive oil. Signature dishes include tempura fish tacos and deep sea shrimp served with fried marlin, baby farm tomatoes, scallions and a sauce made with local cheeses.“What Baja Med proposes is for the ingredient to be the main actor in the kitchen,” said Miguel Angel Guerrero, chef of La Querencia, a Tijuana restaurant serving such dishes as beet carpaccio with blue cheese and mint vinaigrette. “Geographically, we are privileged because throughout the year we have a variety of products available. And yet, many generations have passed, and we still don’t have a regional cuisine.”The port of Ensenada, 40 miles south of Tijuana, is one of the country’s largest for mussels, oysters, clams and shrimp, as well as a hotbed of blue tuna sea farming. Baja California is the fourth largest producing vegetables in Mexico, according to the state government. Comments   Share   “Baja Med cuisine is a mix of the cultures that all came with the intention of crossing to the other side, but they stayed,” Plascencia said. “There were Italian and French restaurants established here because of Prohibition in the United States, and their principle clients were North Americans who came to have a good time at the border.”That’s translated into local demand for products grown in the state, said Hector Gonzalez, manager of the Ensenada-based company Max Sea, which is dedicated to Manila clam cultivation and Kumamoto oysters, since 1999. Before, most of Baja California’s products were being exported to the United States and Japan.“What is happening in restaurants is a synthesis of all this,” Gonzalez said.One of those producers is David Martinez, owner of the farm Rancho Martinez e Hijos, who has grown vegetables and mini-vegetables for 25 years.He first began experimenting with small vegetables that were more colorful and had better taste and texture. Soon, he was selling baby carrots without skin and small green-and-yellow squashes to meet demand from Los Angeles County chefs.“There was not a market for these products in the United States, much less in Mexico,” Martinez said. “We had to go to California to offer it. My idea was to take an old product and modify it and with that get the attention of the restaurants and the housewives.” Sponsored Stories Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion projectcenter_img 5 ways to recognize low testosterone “In the United States they started calling those vegetables gourmet products,” he said. “I had no idea what they were referring to.”Like Martinez, about 80 wine producers of the Ensenada valleys and 20 artisan cheese producers in Real de Castillo, a town southeast of Ensenada, are helping fuel the new cuisine after growing the products for years.There’s no limit, said Plascencia, given the countless ingredients: “It all depends on the creativity of the chef.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day To come up with the right taste, chefs also bring in red lobster, manta rays, sea cucumbers and salicornia, a succulent that grows in sand dunes. They incorporate miniature vegetables from the fields south of Ensenada, olives from the winemaking region of the Guadalupe Valley just northeast of Ensenada, dates from San Ignacio and tomatoes and strawberries from the San Quintin Valley.“Many of us were working on our own for some time but things fell into place for us to work together, while keeping our individual style,” said Marcelo Castro, a leading producer of cheese in Real del Castillo and great-grandson of a Swiss immigrant who came to Ensenada in the late 19th century.Area chefs conceived the movement eight years ago when they formed the Baja California Chef’s Association. It’s been boosted in the last three years by the state government, which has organized and promoted food festivals.Now the 22 Baja Med chefs work with the state’s wine and beer producers and the vegetable growers, fishermen and shellfish farmers. Another boost came this year after international culinary specialists started to visit some of the restaurants.“Tijuana is one of the most interesting Mexican kitchens today. It’s one of the great cities to eat across North America,” international chef Rick Bayless said while taping a Tijuana segment for his PBS series “One Plate at a Time.” How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation Top Stories Associated PressTIJUANA, Mexico (AP) – Until recently, Baja California’s culinary contribution to the world amounted to the Caesar salad, a dish hardly associated with Mexican food. Beyond that, this long, thin peninsula was known more for its Chinese food and pizza thanks to the thousands of migrants from all over the world who began to settle the Mexican state south of California in the 19th century.Now a group of chefs wants to change that, working to create a unique cuisine largely based on fresh seafood caught in the seas flanking Baja and the produce from its fertile valley. The new culinary craze, known as Baja Med, is a fusion of Mexican food with influences from the Mediterranean and Asia.last_img read more
