Government tells UK farmers to ‘stop being defensive’ and embrace Australia trade deal

The UK-Australia trade agreement, announced yesterday, will serve as a “stepping stone” to a wider trans-Pacific pact, the International Trade Secretary said as she rejected farmers’ concerns about the deal. “Australia is important in itself – we are likely to see a 30 per cent increase in trade with Australia by 2030.” Also Read: First summer post-Brexit: Panic among desperate UK farmers as hundreds of thousands of fruit pickers stay away The government insisted there will be opportunities for British farmers to sell produce into Australia and “we’ve got to stop being defensive”. (Getty Images) Government tells UK farmers to ‘stop being defensive’ and embrace Australia trade deal Pacific region Liz Truss insisted there will be opportunities for British farmers to sell produce into Australia and “we’ve got to stop being defensive”. Wednesday 16 June 2021 11:10 am NFU president Minette Batters said: “We will need to know more about any provisions on animal welfare and the environment to ensure our high standards of production are not undermined by the terms of this deal.” On ITV’s Good Morning Britain, she was challenged about the relatively small economic benefits of the deal compared with the estimated 4 per cent long-term hit to UK productivity as a result of Brexit. Truss added: “Australia has some very high animal welfare standards and in fact in some cases they are higher standards than many EU countries, where we already have a quota-free, tariff-free deal.” “Australia mainly sell into the Asia-Pacific markets, which have much higher prices than here in the UK and Europe,” she said. She added it is “also a stepping stone to the trans-Pacific partnership which is a major deal with 11 countries in the Pacific region, population 500m, and what we are seeing is that is a very fast-growing part of the world where there is huge demand for British goods”. “But what the deal will also enable us to do is get more opportunities for our farmers in those markets like Vietnam, like those other markets, where there is growing demand for British beef and lamb. She told the BBC that hormone-injected beef remains banned from the UK and “there is virtually no trade in products like chickens because it is so far away”. Share RSPCA chief executive Chris Sherwood warned it is legal in Australia to mutilate the rear end of sheep, while chicken can be washed with chlorine and almost half of cattle are given growth hormones. “So we need to look outwards. I think we’ve got to stop being defensive and look at where the opportunities are.” Truss told Sky News there is a 15-year transition period before Australia has quota-free access to the UK. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.com whatsapplast_img read more

Mt. Edgecumbe High School honors Tlingit elder and historian Gil Truitt

first_imgAlaska Native Arts & Culture | History | SoutheastMt. Edgecumbe High School honors Tlingit elder and historian Gil TruittFebruary 24, 2021 by Erin McKinstry, KCAW – Sitka Share:Longtime educator and coach Gil Truitt speaks after receiving the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award during an April 19 ceremony in Juneau. He and seven others were honored by the Central Council of Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska. (Photo by CCTHITA)Mt. Edgecumbe High School celebrated Gil Truitt Day on Tuesday and honored the Tlingit elder and local historian with a plaque dedication and tribute. The holiday has been part of the school’s founders’ week celebrations for two years. It’s particularly poignant this year because it’s the first since the death of the former teacher and administrator last July.When Bernie Gurule became principal at Mt. Edgecumbe High School, one of the first people he talked to was Gil Truitt.“He emphasized to me that Mt. Edgecumbe High School is more than just a school, it’s more than just a boarding school. Mt. Edgecumbe High School is an institution. Mt. Edgecumbe High School is a family,” Gurule said. “He went on to say, ‘Mr. Gurule, many of our students come from hard lives and tough backgrounds. We will not lower our standards or expectations, and more importantly, Bernie, we will not allow anybody else to do so.”For Truitt, supporting students like family meant holding them to high standards around self-discipline, academic achievement and personal conduct. It’s advice that Gurule said has shaped his approach as academic principal of the school. And it’s just one of Truitt’s many legacies. He spent 34 years working as a teacher, basketball coach and administrator at the school, but his influence extended long after he retired in 1990.“His place at Mt. Edgecumbe High School and the significance of his place really can’t be overstated,” said Mt. Edgecumbe High School history teacher Dionne Brady-Howard.Brady-Howard is a former student of Truitt’s and she remembers his lectures on sportsmanship, school pride and treating one another as family. They are conversations that she continues to have with her students to this day.“We are kind of like their borrowed parents for their one to four years that they spend at Mt. Edgecumbe. And so those conversations are some of the most important education that actually happens,” Brady-Howard said.Truitt was part of Mt. Edgecumbe High School’s first graduating class. Along with Brady-Howard’s grandmother, he was also instrumental in getting the legislature to reopen the boarding school after the Bureau of Indian Affairs closed it in 1983. Without him, the school may not exist today.Mt. Edgecumbe High School Academic Principal Bernie Gurule pays tribute to Gil Truitt during a plaque dedication in the MEHS gymnasium on Tuesday evening. The plaque will hang in the entrance of the Gil Truitt Activities Center. (Photo by Erin McKinstry/KCAW)But his legacy extends beyond Mt. Edgecumbe High School. He was also a local historian and shared his knowledge with the community in his Sitka Sentinel column “Gilnettings.” Through his research, he mapped nearly 300 residences of Sitka’s former “Indian Village” and helped the Sitka Tribe of Alaska acquire the land for the current Sheet’ká Ḵwáan Naa Kahídi community house, after discovering that the site of the former BIA school had to be used for Native education.“He was actually the caretaker of a lot of knowledge about Sitka’s history, about Sitka’s history as far as Native families,” Brady-Howard said. “And you know which clan houses were where and belonging to whom and which families were connected with one another and how.”Truitt grew up in Sitka’s Cottage settlement, a Native community that stood on Presbyterian mission land at the time. By the age of 15, he’d lost both of his parents. He also faced prejudice growing up in a highly segregated town.“But my dad never lived his life as a victim,” his son Ken Truitt said. Truitt and his wife Shirley had three children. “In spite of the racial prejudice that he would’ve experienced growing up, he also would’ve at real critical moments in his life experienced extraordinary generosity and support from the non-Native community. “After losing his mother, he was accepted at the BIA school in Wrangell but had no money to pay the fare to get there. A Sitka businessman stepped in to help. When he couldn’t afford tuition at Harding University in Arkansas, his basketball coach collected donations from Sitka organizations, Native and non-Native.“I think he had this real sense of a debt to the entire community and a debt in not a bad way — but a debt that he was going to be committed to always working to make Sitka a better place,” he said.Ken Truitt will always remember his father for his open affection, his subversive sense of humor and his love of sports — a love that he didn’t share but came to understand as he grew older.“I asked him, I said, you know, ‘Dad, tell me what’s the big deal about sports?’ And he just said, ‘You know, when I was growing up, we weren’t able to play on the white teams and so we had our own teams and on the basketball courts,” Ken Truitt said. “Everybody knew what the rules were. And you had a chance to compete and you had a chance to win. And more often than not, we would win.”Gil Truitt received countless awards throughout his lifetime, including an honorary doctorate of law from the University of Alaska Anchorage, a President’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the Central Council of Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska and multiple hall of fame inductions. He was a member of the Wooshkeetaan, or Shark, Clan of the Eagle Moiety. Share this story:last_img read more

People / Robert Van de Weg goes his own way with AirWay Cargo

first_img Robert Van de Weg has launched his own business to advise air freight companies.Mr Van de Weg, who until earlier this year was Volga-Dnepr Group’s SVP sales and marketing, has formed AirWay Cargo, a company focused on advising airlines, airports, GSAs and forwarders.“The objective is to help them improve their cargo business in a pragmatic way,” he told The Loadstar. “The focus is mainly on network management, capacity and revenue management, product management and on organizational advice.”Mr Van de Weg, an economist by education, has a wealth of experience in air freight and is well-respected by colleagues and rivals alike. Prior to heading sales at AirBridgeCargo Airlines and later Volga-Dnepr Group as a whole, he was sales and network chief in Cargolux management team for more than 11 years. By Alex Lennane 07/09/2017 Stan Wraight, president of SASI, commented: “Robert’s contribution to air cargo and the rapidly changing environment we are living in, is great news for the industry. While we all acknowledge that history and experience is invaluable and Robert has that, he is also very forward thinking and progressive in knowing how we must address issues, and that’s what any potential clients he may secure, need at this time.”Mr Van de Weg started his new venture in May, and said he is “pleased so far’ with the results.last_img read more

News / Kerry Logistics takeover by SF Holding creates ‘biggest logistics group in Asia’

first_imgSF added that it would open up its own air capacity to Kerry to increase loading rates. Just a decade old, SF Airlines is already China’s largest freighter operator with nearly 60 aircraft in its fleet.The integrator has undergone rapid expansion in recent years on the back of China’s e-commerce boom, becoming one of the largest last-mile delivery firms for the likes of Alibaba and JD.com. Its value has reportedly tripled over the past year, to around $72bn – larger than FedEx.For its part, Kerry Logistics emphasised the deal was “not an acquisition”, but a “collaboration on capital resources and business operations”.According to the South China Morning Post, Kerry Logistics will take over the international operations of the combined group, despite the deal reducing Kerry Holdings’ share of KLN from 63% to 32%, pending approval from shareholders.SF chairman Dick Wong said the deal was the culmination of four years of negotiations.“The majority shareholder [Kerry Holdings] has trusted SF Holding enough that they are willing to relinquish control in the group, as we both feel that there is a genuine need to collaborate [amid the quickly evolving market].”Kerry Holdings is owned by Malaysian billionaire Robert Kuok, with cash-rich KLN growing via a string of freight forwarding acquisitions in recent years, including US-based Apex Maritime in 2016, one of the largest NVOCCs on the transpacific.According to Transport Intelligence, Kerry closely trails the top four global forwarders in ocean freight volumes and lies around 14th in terms of airfreight.Loadstar Premium noted on Monday it was “almost unheard of” for an integrator such as SF Express, which focuses largely on B2C operations, to step into 3PL territory and make inroads into the B2B arena.Nevertheless, global head of Premium Alessandro Pasetti said: “Several sources indicate that the Chinese mammoth, with its $72bn market cap and under-leveraged balance sheet, won’t be done with deal-making in forwarding after this M&A round – if, as expected, it successfully closes.“The Asians are ready when it comes to spending top dollar in M&A; the Europeans and Americans not so much,” he added. Chinese express giant SF Holding is to acquire a 51.8% stake in Hong Kong’s Kerry Logistics Network – a landmark $2.3bn deal creating the “biggest logistics group in Asia”.In a filing to the Shenzhen stock exchange late last night, SF Holding, which operates courier firm SF Express, said the move would help expand its international footprint and freight forwarding operations through Kerry’s extensive South-east Asia network and its strength on US and European tradelanes.“Air and ocean freight forwarding and customs clearance capabilities can improve SF Holdings’ end-to-end supply chain solutions, combining the company’s existing international cargo shipping capabilities to further strengthen the international transport business,” SF said.The SF filing noted that, by combining its air cargo volumes with Kerry’s, the company would be able to “obtain better bargaining power against external airlines.” By Sam Whelan 10/02/2021last_img read more

MSS agents go deep undercover, disguise themselves as goat herders

first_img News RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR MSS agents go deep undercover, disguise themselves as goat herders North Korea’s Ministry of State Security has ratcheted up its efforts to arrest residents making international calls with Chinese mobile phones. In one recent incident, agents reportedly disguised themselves as goat herders to try and make an arrest.“On April 5 in Hyesan City, two residents were nearly apprehended while making a call to South Korea. The MSS agents were disguised as goat herders, and apparently the disguise was quite believable,” a source in Ryanggang Province told Daily NK on April 12.“The residents are said to have narrowly escaped after fleeing over three mountains. But that was not the end of the ordeal, as there were many people (presumably other MSS agents) wearing ordinary clothing waiting at the foot of the mountains as well,” the source added.The incident suggests that MSS agents are diversifying their methods to catch residents who head deep into the mountains to make calls.“There are few people now who are naive enough to make calls within their homes, and most people make them nearby, high in the mountains. Being well aware of this situation, the MSS agents seem to be adapting their methods as well,” said a separate source in Ryanggang Province.“But I couldn’t imagine that they would disguise themselves as goat herders or ordinary people to crack down on mobile phone users. The methods of the MSS agents are evolving,” the source noted. AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article?

He noted however that Cabinet has not yet done a review of the plans in the context of the overall port development plans and said, “how we deal with the Palisadoes strip is critical”.center_img RelatedGov’t Looking to Relocate Tinson Pen Aerodrome Advertisementslast_img read more

Facebook destroying its social license by restricting Australian news content

first_imgFacebook destroying its social license by restricting Australian news content Australia Institute“Facebook’s decision to prevent users viewing or sharing public interest journalism will make it a weaker social network,” said Peter Lewis, director of the Australia Institute’s Centre for Responsible Technology.“The social network is destroying its social license to operate. Facebook actions mean the company’s failures in privacy, disinformation, and data protection will require a bigger push for stronger government regulation.“Without fact-based news to anchor it, Facebook will become little more than cute cats and conspiracy theories.“At a time when the importance of facts in dealing with a global health crisis are critical, Facebook’s decision is arrogant, reckless, and dangerous.“For years Facebook has been holding back against valuing facts and taking accountability for what their network promotes.“It has honed advertising models that excite, enrage, and divide its users and fails to recognise the benefits of anchoring its network in ethically-curated news content.“If Facebook determines to treat Australians with such contempt, Australians should respond by ending its use of Facebook and using alternate ways to connect online.” /Public Release.
