South Africa, US resolve chicken import issues

first_img8 June 2015South Africa has agreed to resume the importing of chicken from the US, the Department of Trade and Industry has said.“South Africa and the United States agreed on a framework to restore market access into the South African market for US bone-in chicken cuts,” the department said yesterday.This follows a two-day meeting, on 4 and 5 June in Paris, France. The meeting was facilitated by the United States and South African governments with their respective industry associations, which resulted in a breakthrough after several months of industry to industry negotiations.For some time South Africa has had in place an anti-dumping duty on chicken portions coming from the US.The department said the agreement between the two countries would secure the continued participation of South Africa in the re-authorised 2015 Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (Agoa) that was being extended by the US congress for a further 10 years.Agoa provides duty-free market access to the US for qualifying sub-Saharan African countries by extending preferences on more than 4 600 products.In the negotiations, the South African poultry industry was represented by the South African Poultry Association and the US industry represented by the National Chicken Council and United States of America Poultry and Egg Export Council.The framework agreement follows enhanced engagement between the two parties towards resolution of concerns raised by the US regarding South Africa’s inclusion and continued participation in Agoa. It entails a rebate on the anti-dumping duty for a specified volume of US bone-in chicken cuts into the South African market.“The South African government commits to facilitate the implementation of the framework agreed by the two industries after following due process,” said the department.Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies, who was in Paris to attend the informal World Trade Organisation Ministerial meeting at the Organisation for Economic Co- operation and Development, met the poultry delegations and received feedback on the outcomes of the negotiations.He commended the South African poultry industry for engaging positively in the negotiations in the interest of securing South Africa’s continued participation in Agoa.“This is a clear demonstration of what can be achieved with strong partnership between government and industry in finding solutions that benefit the South African economy,” Davies said.Furthermore, South African and US government officials discussed sanitary issues concerning agriculture trade. Progress has been achieved and technical work is on- going towards resolution of the issues.The two governments agreed to use the Trade and Investment Framework Agreement, which is a bilateral platform between the two countries, as an important mechanism to resolve bilateral issues. They also agreed to focus on enhancing trade and investment through identification of mutually beneficial issues and programmes of interest.Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more

Your Facebook Activity is Now an Ad

first_imgTags:#advertising#Facebook#NYT#web But in Twitter’s case, Promoted Tweets didn’t come from just anyone’s content – they could only be selected from the advertiser’s account or those affiliated with it. A promoted tweet wouldn’t be stolen content from an unsuspecting user.Of course, that’s not Facebook’s way.How Facebook’s Sponsored Stories WorkWith Facebook’s Sponsored Stories, your activity is now up for grabs, available to the advertiser associated with the brand, business or app you interacted with.Just checked in to a restaurant? That’s an ad. Just liked a brand? That’s an ad. Just shared a news story from the Web? That’s an ad. Facebook is launching a new ad format called “Sponsored Stories,” which allows participating advertisers to promote your Facebook activity by turning it into homepage ads seen only by your friends. This activity can include liking a Facebook page, checking in via Facebook Places or sharing content to the News Feed from a Facebook application.These shares, which would have appeared in your friends’ News Feeds anyway, are now given special promotion by way of a Facebook ad that appears on the right-hand side of the homepage. The ad will display your friend’s name, photo, a picture and link to the relevant Facebook Page or application, plus any likes and comments.Similarities to Twitter’s Promoted TweetsDoes this sort of user-generated advertising sound familiar? It should – Twitter is doing nearly the same thing.?Twitter’s Promoted Tweets service was introduced last spring, offering advertisers similar options for generating ads from the social networking site’s content. It was an new concept for advertising – taking content that would have appeared within the service’s search results (the de facto way to see what people are saying about a given subject on Twitter) – and highlighting that content through a top-of-the-page ad showcasing the promoted tweet itself.In November, Twitter announced it would begin rolling out the Promoted Tweets into users’ timelines, too, through its partner, HootSuite, a provider of a popular Twitter client application. Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Related Posts sarah perez The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Advertising Transparency?The funny thing about these “personalized recommendations,” as Facebook calls them, is that an ad could come from a restaurant check-in that led to the worst meal of your life or it could show up after you “liked” a retailer only because they were running an ad that said “like us on Facebook for 10% off.“Your friends would see the promoted activity – activity that may or may not tell the whole story of your interaction with that business. Unless you comment on the item to explain, all your friends would see is the activity itself.On the flip side, that does raise an interesting question – what if you did comment on the activity? What if, say, after a check-in at a restaurant, you commented about the terrible food or service? Because Sponsored Stories display the likes and comments, your friends would now be able to see your complaint, too. But do advertisers have any way of knowing that? And can they pull a Sponsored Story if so? That’s a key point, and it’s unclear what level of control advertisers have here. It’s important though, because real personalized recommendations work both ways – they deliver the good news and the bad. Without both sides represented, this is just a new way to spam your friends.Future ImplicationsWhile on the one hand, the fact that my activity is now being turned into ads for my friends makes me feel a little icky inside, I don’t totally hate this idea. I would like to see what new restaurants my friends are trying, what online articles they found worth sharing, where they shop, etc. That’s the least offensive kind of advertising I can imagine, and arguably, the most effective, too, if done right.What’s even more interesting about this integration, however, are the future implications it brings to mind. Thanks to the Facebook/Microsoft partnership, these types of personalized recommendations could soon find their way into Microsoft’s Bing search engine, for example. That could finally hit the sweet spot for personalized search.One of the complaints about the limitations of the Facebook Like is that your friends aren’t going to go around liking boring things like household appliances or other sorts of items undeserving of a Facebook share. But by including check-ins and website shares in this advertising initiative, it’s easy to imagine a future where a Bing search for a refrigerator delivers a results page that tells you: “John just checked in to Sears on Monday” and commented “great appliance sale!”That could be interesting.Maybe a little creepy, too. But if there’s one thing Facebook doesn’t shy away from is toeing the creepy line, to see how much invasiveness its users will tolerate before crying out “privacy violation!”The funniest thing about this new form of advertising is that it’s actually far more intrusive than Instant Personalization, which simply shared select profile info with partner websites on an opt-out basis. Instant Personalization received federal regulator attention, while this move will likely fly under the radar, despite the fact that it co-opts your content for ads, with no opt-out option at all.Creepy. Genius. Nice move, Facebook.Source, Image Credits: Inside Facebook, Facebook.com A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit At launch, Facebook’s Sponsored Stories partners are Coke, Levi’s, Anheuser Busch and Playfish, plus nonprofits like Donors Choose, Girl Up!, Malaria No More, Amnesty International, Women for Women, Autism Speaks, (RED), Alzheimer’s Association and UNICEF.Oh, and there’s no way to opt-out, says Facebook. “While there is no way to opt out of seeing all or being featured in any Sponsored Stories, you can remove specific stories by clicking the ‘X’ displayed in the upper right side of a story and choosing the appropriate option when prompted.”The stories also respect your Facebook privacy settings, so only people who can read your News Feed stories can see the Sponsored Stories.last_img read more

NSCN-IM settles for ‘shared sovereignty’

first_imgIn the two years that the Centre signed a framework agreement with the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah) to find a solution to the decades-old Naga sovereignty issue, the outfit has recruited around 5,000 new cadres, a senior government official said. He said NSCN-IM, one of the largest groups representing Nagas, has been recruiting locals on the ground that they would be recruited in the central armed police forces, once the final agreement was signed. The details of the framework agreement are yet to be made public.On May 9, NSCN-IM issued a statement saying as of now the Nagas have agreed to co-exist with India under “shared sovereignty.” In 1997, NSCN (Isak-Muivah) signed a ceasefire agreement for an indefinite period with the Centre. On August 3, 2015, the government had signed the ‘framework agreement’ with the NSCN-IM for finding a final solution to the vexed Naga issue.Last year, while extending Armed Forces Special Powers Act in three districts of Arunachal Pradesh, Centre in a notification cited “extortion and intimidation” by the cadres of NSCN-IM as one of the reasons for doing so.The notification said that “Naga underground factions including NSCN-IM and NSCN-K continue to indulge in extortion, area domination, recruitment of locals and inter-factional rivalry.”Asked about the statement, a top government official involved in talks with the NSCN-IM told The Hindu that it is “not necessary to react to every statement they make. We are in the right direction.”The concerns around NSCN-IM recruiting fresh cadres was shared by officials with home minister Rajnath Singh at a high-level meet on Monday to discuss various issues pertaining to the North East.“In 2015, when NSCN-IM signed an agreement, it had 2,000 cadres in its fold, after that they recruited 5,000 more. The current strength is 5,000 as 2,000 deserted the ranks. It’s a worrying trend, as they are promising them jobs in central forces,” said the official. Security forces have also been raising the issue of extortion by the NSCN-IM in different parts of Nagaland and Manipur and asked it to stop such activity.On August 3, 2015, the government had signed the ‘framework agreement’ with the NSCN-IM for finding a final solution to the vexed Naga issue. The agreement was signed in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the outfit’s leader T Muivah at the prime minister’s residence“The framework agreement contained various demands of NSCN-IM and a separate passport and flag was also demanded by them then. The government of India’s reply was very clear on this that we don’t agree to this,” said another government official. The NSCN-IM has been in talks with the Centre’s representative for last 17 years, even since it had entered into a ceasefire agreement in 1997.The talks seem to have lost steam after the death of Isak Chisi Swu (86) last year. Naga outfits envisage a “Greater Nagalim” comprising the contiguous Naga-inhabited areas of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur with Nagaland and also a large tract of Myanmar.last_img read more

Modi, Kejriwal have opportunistically used Anna Hazare, alleges Raj Thackeray

first_imgMaharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Monday lambasted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, saying both had opportunistically piggybacked on anti-graft activist Anna Hazare’s ‘Jan Lokpal’ movement only to callously disregard him today.“I have urged Anna not to put his life in danger for this apathetic and useless government. This [BJP-led NDA] is a government of liars, and the biggest liar of them all is Prime Minister Narendra Modi… this is an utterly shameless government. It has not the slightest sensitivity to whether Anna lives or dies,” said Mr. Thackeray.Mr. Thackeray, along with other MNS leaders and party workers, visited the veteran anti-graft crusader in his village in Ralegan Siddhi in Ahmednagar district as his indefinite hunger strike against the Centre’s failure to appoint Lokpal and Lokayuktas and resolution of farmers’ issues entered its sixth day on Monday.“It is only because of Anna Hazare and his agitation for Lokpal and Lokayuktas that Modi and the other BJP leaders and Arvind Kejriwal are in power. But Modi and Kejriwal have used and then conveniently jettisoned Anna,” said the MNS chief.’PM had reneged on his promise’Mr. Modi had tweeted on December 18, 2013 on the need to implement the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act, but reneged on his promise, Mr. Thackeray said. “After five years in power, the Modi government has done nothing to appoint a Lokpal…this is a government of dishonest people.”Mr. Thackeray had a half-hour talk with Mr. Hazare inside the Yadavbaba Temple (where the activist is on his hunger strike) and requested the latter to end it in view of his steadily deteriorating health.“I have requested him [Mr. Hazare] to give up his fast and instead tour the State with me to bury this [BJP] government,” he said.Likewise, he expressed his ire at Mr. Kejriwal for failing to enquire about Mr. Hazare’s health and observing common courtesies. “Whoever had heard of Arvind Kejriwal before Anna’s Lokpal movement? But today, he does not even bother to visit Anna or ask after his health,” said Mr. Thackeray.Mr. Modi and BJP national president Amit Shah, he alleged, were subverting the autonomy of every institution in the country. In the coming general election, it would be the people of the country versus the Modi-Shah duo, he said.“The pressure that is being exerted on bodies from the RBI to the CBI to toe the BJP’s line is deplorable. A CBI Director is dismissed in a cavalier fashion while two RBI Governors have resigned as they would not conform. The blame in this case lies only with Modi and his arrogance,” Mr. Thackeray said.Prior to Mr. Thackeray’s meeting, water activist Rajendra Singh met Mr. Hazare and expressed concern over the latter’s declining health. Mr. Singh said he was worried that the Centre would display the same apathy towards Mr. Hazare as it had done in the case of environmentalist G. D Agarwal, who died last year after refusing to budge from his indefinite hunger strike in Haridwar over the government’s inadequate efforts to clean up the Ganga.Meanwhile, the Shiv Sena has lent support to Mr. Hazare’s strike. Its president Uddhav Thackeray has hit out at the BJP for “playing with Mr. Hazare’s life”.last_img read more

M.P. Congress MLA demands SIT in cow slaughter row

first_imgA Congress MLA has written to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath demanding setting up of a SIT and transfer of the Khandwa District Collector for invoking the National Security Act on three persons accused of cow slaughter. Bhopal Central MLA Arif Masood, in his letter sent on Friday, termed the NSA move “one-sided”, adding that the kin of the three accused had met him and had alleged that the Collector had not heard their side.‘Slaughter shameful’ He said cow slaughter was “shameful” but reiterated that the Collector’s move to invoke the stringent NSA was unjustified. He demanded constitution of a Special Investigation Team to probe the case and the Collector’s transfer in order to have a “fair” probe.Mr. Masood said on Saturday, “I have written to the Chief Minister and urged him to intervene in the matter. The action taken by the police and district officials was on the basis of information given by an informer. The side of the accused should have been heard before invoking NSA.” He claimed the minority community leaders from different parts of the country have also spoken to Congress chief Rahul Gandhi in this regard. Earlier last week, the authorities had slapped NSA on three accused, identified as Shakeel, Nadeem and Azam, for allegedly killing a cow in Khandwa, and jailed. Justifying the action, Khandwa Superintendent of Police Siddharth Bahuguna had said Nadeem, alias Raju, was a habitual offender and had been held earlier in a cow slaughter case as well as other criminal cases.Communally sensitive Khandwa is a communally sensitive area and such an incident might affect its peace and harmony and therefore, he had said, such a move was made against the three. According to Moghat Police Station in-charge Mohan Singore, acting on a tip-off that a few persons were involved in cow slaughter, a team raided Kharkali village near here on February 1. While the accused fled from the spot, a large knife and beef was seized from there, he said. The three were arrested on February 2 and Khandwa Collector Vishesh Gadpale later invoked NSA against them, Mr. Singore had informed.last_img read more
