Prosciutto production does not cover even 50% of domestic needs

first_imgCroatia has 31 products protected at EU level by geographical indications and origins. The labels are awarded by the Ministry of Agriculture, and out of ten meat products, as many as four prosciuttos are protected: Krk, Dalmatian, Istrian and Drniš. Only producers who meet the prescribed production conditions for a particular type of prosciutto may use protected marks. However, the main problem is that we do not cover even 50% of our own needs with production, let alone create a recognizable product through tourism and the branding process that would be exported.”Prosciutto production is not only part of our cultural heritage, but also a competitive and export-oriented product. However, with today’s production capacity of about 350.000 pieces per year, we do not meet even 50% of our own needs. Prosciutto production requires new investments, implementation of the latest technological achievements and stronger promotion, which would create the preconditions for greater placement on the EU market and in the domestic tourist offer., “Said the Vice President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce for Agriculture and Tourism Dragan Kovačević on the occasion of the opening of the 5th International Prosciutto Festival in Drniš, adding that the Croatian Chamber of Commerce has supported the event from the beginning as an opportunity to promote domestic production.The cause of reduced production capacity should be sought in the historical minimum of pig production, with less than a million fatteners, says Kovacevic, adding that in addition to traditional technology, in the production of prosciutto, quality and properties of meat are key prerequisites for quality and sensory properties of prosciutto. “Additional subsidies are needed for the dedicated production of fatteners. Support for targeted fattening and increased production of prosciutto should be observed through the strategy of the Tourism Development Strategy until 2020, which defines gastronomy as one of the key products for strengthening the competitiveness of tourism in general and the competitiveness of individual regions and destinations,Said Kovacevic.The example of prosciutto production, as well as all other branches in agriculture and meat industry, from cheese and milk production, raising chickens, cows, pigs, etc. pro everything is falling apart, farmers spilling milk on the roads, destroying frustrated products in fields and so on for years. As we fail, others grow and jazz between competitiveness increases more and more.Unfortunately we fall for common mussels, sardines, eggs, lettuce, potatoes, onions… Instead of using all the food from local resources and having thousands of local family farms networked through clusters and supporting tourism, we encourage and buy food from imports. Insane and totally counter productive.Slavonia is declining, villages are being emptied while on the other hand we have great demand and consumption through tourism – we have it all, only someone has to connect it. Who’s crazy here? Who’s been crazy here for 25 years? Where have the false incentives gone all these years? By the way, the very word incentive means growth and development, which means that if someone receives an incentive from the State, the parameters must be known exactly how much they must increase production or similar. So it has to grow.This is just another proof of the catastrophic agricultural policy all these years. The combination of “blue” and “green” Croatia should have been 20 years ago, and today that slogan is already disgusting.Finally, one question, just ask yourself, what is the daily need for eggs in Split, Pula and other cities? For information, one hen lays one egg per day, ie an average of 280 eggs per year per laying hen. Thousands of eggs a day have to be produced by local and domestic family farms, and not by one big company, one “Agrokor” or even worse to import “ordinary” eggs.last_img read more

We appreciate all that Governor Wolf has done for us and we look forward to working with him in the future as we continue with our fundraising efforts.”Governor Wolf was joined for the announcement and tour of the project by Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, Senator Vincent Hughes, and Representative James Roebuck.“The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House is truly a heroic institution,” said Mayor Jim Kenney of Philadelphia. “For generations it has eased the burden facing families of seriously ill children by providing a home environment while their children receive care at CHOP. I applaud Governor Wolf and the Commonwealth’s Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program for this tremendous contribution to the Chestnut Street House, and look forward to watching as this much-needed expansion becomes a reality.”“Since I became Governor, I have worked hard to ensure that when state government is investing its limited resources, we are doing so in ways that have the largest, direct impacts on our citizens and their families,” Governor Wolf said. “And I can’t think of a worthier cause than the Ronald McDonald House.”last_img read more

Young children getting their hands on marijuana-infused brownies, gummies in legal states, poison control centers say

For kids, such high doses of THC, the psychotropic component in marijuana, usually requires a trip to the emergency room, she said.At the hospital, the kids’ vitals are monitored closely until the high eventually wears off.“Some of these kids end up being watched in the intensive care unit overnight because we’re so worried about them,” said Dr. Kavita Babu, the director of toxicology at the University of Massachusetts medical school.READ MORE: https://www.foxnews.com/health/children-marijuana-infused-brownies-gummies-in-legal-states Watch the latest video at foxnews.comlast_img read more

Aiyegbeni rules out coaching

first_imgRelatedPosts Ighalo: Solskjaer inspired me O’Neill quits as Northern Ireland manager Oliseh better than Mikel — Aiyegbeni Ex-Everton former Yakubu Ayegbeni has put an end to speculation linking him with management.The 37-year-old had been connected with coaching following his involvement with the Nigeria U20 team.Preparing for the 2019 Fifa U20 World Cup in Poland, the Yak teamed up with the Flying Eagles in Munich, while offering to drill Paul Aigbogun’s forwards.However, the ex-Nigeria international claims he has no plans to venture into coaching, saying he is happy with his role at Fifa.“I don’t want to be coach,” the former Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Leicester City man stated.“I went to the U20 camp in Munich before they went to Poland. There, I stayed for over a week and passed my message to the young footballers.“I even coached the strikers a little bit and I am always ready to help out when I’m needed but coaching is not for me.“I enjoy what I’m doing now than coaching, but, I can come in whenever I’m needed to speak to the boys and pass my knowledge to the upcoming players.“I was in the national team for ten years and I had a great time there, good or bad.“For me, to be invited to speak with the U15s, U17s and U20s will be nice and I will be willing to help in the future. But as a coach, that’s not for me.”Currently, Ayegbeni is one of the Fifa ambassadors who help to take the beautiful game to distressed countries in conjunction with the Fifa Legends Programme.He shared his experience and provided some insight into his role as it concerns giving hope to future stars.“I’ve been travelling around with Fifa,” he continued.“We were once at Malawi and the last time, I went to Tsonga, I’ve been with them [Fifa] for almost a year now.“I enjoy working with Fifa and being one of their ambassadors is great. You meet people; you try to pass a message to the upcoming players.“It’s not really about football alone because you meet with people from other sports, encouraging them to follow their dreams.“Having a chance talking these boys from the street, speaking to them to follow their passion is like a dream come true for me.” Tags: CoachingYakubu Aiyegbenilast_img read more

Dr. Fauci, Two More Members of COVID-19 Task Force in Quarantine

first_imgStephen Hahn, Food and Drug Administration Commissioner, and Robert Redfield, who serves as director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will also self-quarantine after possibly be exposed to someone who has the virus.Redfield and Hahn will testify by video conference, the committee’s chairman, Sen. Lamar Alexander, said on Saturday.Additionally, the White House sent out an email to all staff on Friday titled, “Strong Precautions We Are Taking,” about the measures being taken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 there in the wake of Miller’s positive test, an official said.The note discusses maintaining maximum telework for staff, reporting travel and monitoring one’s own symptoms, according to a copy obtained by CNN.The memo also states that “high-touch points” in the White House and Eisenhower Executive Office Building, an office building near the White House where many staffers work, will receive “heightened levels of cleaning.”Last Thursday, White House staff reportedly received another memo, telling them that they would be asked about their symptoms and would have their temperatures checked before being allowed to enter the White House complex. Any person who acknowledges having symptoms may be pulled for further screening or may be denied entry.Neither memo addresses face masks. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease expert who has been serving on the White House coronavirus task force, told multiple media outlets over the weekend that he will go into a “modified” self-quarantine.The decision to self-quarantine comes after two White House staffers, an unidentified valet to President Trump, and Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary, Katie Miller, both tested positive for coronavirus late last week. Miller is the wife of White House adviser Stephen Miller.Meanwhile, Dr. Fauci says his reasoning for doing a modified self-quarantine is that he had a “low-risk” contact with the White House staff member who tested positive.In that regard, he will mostly work from home, and would wear a mask and take necessary precautions if he is requested to go to the White House or Capitol Hill, Fauci told CNN. He is expected to testify this week in person at a Senate hearing on the coronavirus.Fauci says tested negative for the virus on Friday.America’s doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers are heroes! pic.twitter.com/tbSKbBoqHi— The White House (@WhiteHouse) May 9, 2020last_img read more

Goalies Constantino, Richardson thrive while splitting time

first_img Published on February 18, 2014 at 11:30 pm Contact Tyler: tfpiccot@syr.edu Through the first three games of the 2014 season, No. 2 Syracuse (3-0) has put up eye-popping offensive numbers.Paced by the duo of attacks Alyssa Murray and Kayla Treanor, the Orange has hounded opponents for 64 goals, marking its most explosive start since head coach Gary Gait took over prior to 2008.So it might be easy to overlook the tag team in net that has anchored SU at the other end. Not that they really mind, though.“We don’t really pay attention to that,” senior goalkeeper Alyssa Costantino said. “We just like to go out there and do our best every game and work with the defense.”So far, so good for Costantino and junior Kelsey Richardson. Each has given the Orange three solid halves between the pipes, allowing only 13 goals through 180 total minutes of play. During Sunday’s 18-6 win over Canisius, Richardson helped SU jump to a commanding 13-2 lead at the break before Costantino maintained the advantage during the second frame. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNow, the two want to use that momentum to spark their teammates on defense as conference play looms in the coming days.“I think our defensive unit as a whole unit is getting overlooked because we lost the Blocks (sisters Linley and Becca) last year,” Richardson said. “I think we’re going to come back strong and surprise a lot of teams.”But the goalies’ effect on the Orange should come as no surprise.Costantino and Richardson have been splitting time in net since 2012 when the latter joined Syracuse as a promising freshman. Gait knew both of them would play important roles on the team, but he first needed to make sure they were all on the same page.“We sat down and talked about how you two need to feed off each other, you need to help each other,” Gait said. “You’ve gotta compete and help, and they’ve bought into it from the beginning and done a great job.”The results were instantly positive.Costantino was named to the All-Big East Second Team that season after leading the conference with a .492 save percentage and an 8.37 goals-against average. Meanwhile, Richardson appeared in 17 games and posted a nearly identical save percentage.She said that without Costantino’s guidance, things would have been different.“When I came in as a freshman, she helped me with just learning the ropes and being comfortable in college lacrosse,” Richardson said. “I’ve gotten to know her over these past three years, and we’ve grown a lot together.”Costantino called their relationship a “friendly competition,” but she also emphasized how close they are as friends. There has never been any sort of hostility between them on the field during the past two seasons.“We’re there for each other, rooting each other on every time,” Costantino said. “We almost help each other get better every game and practice. We’ve always got each other’s back.”So with no threat of a controversy at the cage, the two are completely focused on the rest of 2014. Both are excited to be a part of the Atlantic Coast Conference and play some of the best teams in the country.Especially Costantino, who now has only one more chance to achieve her goal from freshman year.“I really want to put everything I’ve got, everything on the line for the national championship,” she said.Armed with two motivated keepers, Gait knows his team has a huge defensive advantage. No matter what others see and perceive, he views their play as a focal point on a team with huge aspirations.“I’ve coached a lot and always haven’t had two goalies,” Gait said. “I like it. I think it’s a great luxury for our team.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
