The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) said multiple screening tests of a 10-year-old dairy cow have indicated possible BSE, or mad cow disease. Confirmatory test results were expected in 3 to 5 days. The carcass was kept out of the human food and animal feed systems, the agency said. The agency said American officials had been informed of the suspected BSE case. “This finding should not have a significant or lasting impact on efforts to normalize trade,” the statement said. “In negotiations with trading partners, including the U.S., Canada has been very open about the prospect of finding more BSE.” See also: The announcement comes on the heels of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) announcement yesterday of plans to partially lift the current ban on importing of live Canadian cattle on Mar 7. Live Canadian cattle have been barred since Canada’s first BSE case was discovered in May 2003. Because Canada is now considered a “minimal risk” region for BSE, the border will be reopened to live Canadian cattle less than 30 months of age and certain other animals and products, the USDA said. Canada’s BSE-related measures have been based on the assumption that more cases may be found in North America, the CFIA said. “As a result, the confirmation of a new case of BSE would not indicate increased risk to food safety as Canada requires the removal of specified risk material (SRM) from all animals entering the human food supply,” the agency said. SRM are tissues such as the brain, spinal cord, and certain nerve bundles, which are likely to contain the BSE agent if the animal has the disease. The CFIA, in announcing the suspected BSE case, said, “The Government of Canada’s normal policy is to report only confirmed results. However, given the unique situation created by the United States border announcement on December 29 it was decided that the most prudent action would be to publicly announce the available information and provide stakeholders with a full understanding of the current situation.” Dec 30, 2004 (CIDRAP News) Canada today reported what could be its second case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), only hours after the US government announced plans to ease restrictions on the importation of Canadian cattle. The dairy cow was tested because it couldn’t walk, putting it in a high-risk category in Canada’s BSE surveillance program, officials said. The cow was born before Canada (and the United States) banned the feeding of protein from ruminant animals to other ruminants in 1997. “If BSE is confirmed in this case, consumption of contaminated feed before 1997 remains the most likely route of [BSE] transmission” to the cow, the CFIA said. The CFIA did not say where the suspect cow came from or give any other identifying information about it. Officials said the Canadian Science Centre for Human and Animal Health in Winnipeg, Man., is handling the confirmatory testing. USDA announcement of plan to loosen import restrictions
In the Dubrovnik archipelago, an educational program on sailboats, Big Data Sailing Academy, was successfully held. From 19 to 26 May, organized by the Business Sailing Experience Agency, participants sailed for a week around Dubrovnik’s Elafiti and Mljet, where a big data training was held every day at a different location.During the seven days, the participants sailed around Dubrovnik, visited the lighthouse of St. Andrew was built back in 1873 and climbed the walls of Ston. The three largest islands of the Elafiti have served as perfect ports for numerous sailboats over the centuries and thus for the Big Data Sailing Academy. But the greatest enthusiasm among the participants was caused by the Mljet National Park and its lakes. Since most of the participants are from Western Europe, they admitted that they could not even imagine such beauties on the Old Continent.The sailing training program is a new concept developed by the Business Sailing Experience Agency. Each day, participants began a relaxing sailing to their desired destination. Sailboats serve as floating hotels, but they are also ideal for developing team spirit among those present. This cohesion then brings greater relaxation during education, which of course results in better learning.Big Data lectures were organized by Poslovna Inteligencij, and an expert from a leading Croatian data analysis company prepared an education that combines practical knowledge and theoretical concepts.”As Big Data became an indispensable part of the business of many companies in a short period of time, the necessary investments in education also increased. In the coming years, an exponential growth in the amount of data collected is expected, so it is necessary to organize quality education of people. By holding Big Data training on sailing boats, BSE Agency has shown that in Croatia there is great potential in the foreign market to offer added value in tourism. By organizing a lecture on a current topic on a unique platform of sailboats, we can offer much more content than usual“Said Ivan Rade Tadić from the Business Sailing Experience Agency and concluded that this concept is especially suitable for developing the offer before and after the season.

Prevailing challenges in the offshore and marine sector have sprung rumors on the potential consolidation of Singapore’s rig builders Keppel Corporation (Keppel) and Sembcorp Industries (SCI), according to DBS Bank.The move would be a prudent choice having in mind the yard overcapacity and rig oversupply, along with the two yards’ rationalization efforts amid lower activity level. In addition, recent changes in the leadership of these groups could drive the consolidation move to fruition.“A merger could make sense to further streamline their operations, achieve cost synergies and eliminate competition in the medium term,” DBS said in a report that explored the possible scenarios for rationalization of the O&M assets involving Keppel, SCI, and its listed subsidiary Sembcorp Marine (SMM).The three scenarios include a merger of Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) and SMM which would combine their core competencies and facilities, thus strengthening their franchise and creating room for further cost rationalization.A second scenario would be SCI’s possible divestment of SMM thus unlocking value for shareholders. In such a move, SCI could enhance value to its shareholders by focusing on its core competency along the utilities value chain, and divesting SMM to Keppel, Temasek or ST Engineering.And finally, Keppel could inject infrastructure assets into SCI. In such a move, Keppel could remain a conglomerate but swap its infrastructure assets (worth c.S$1.3bn, and are synergistic to SCI), for SCI’s interest in SMM.According to DSB, the first scenario looks like the one that would make the most sense, ” giving birth to a power house.”Aside to initial integration issues, and some overlapping of product offering, the two Singapore rig builders have diversified into other sectors, for instance, Keppel expanded into Floating Liquified Natural Gas (FLNG) vessels while SMM has developed the modularized LNG platform for close to shore applications, thus paving way for expansion of business portfolio and creation of a shipbuilding giant.

By Jerry Mackey The start time will be set back an hour which will not only allow better race conditions but will make for much more comfortable conditions for our loyal race fans.

VINTON, Iowa – Specialty Race Promotions, operators of Benton County Speedway, The Bullring, have made the decision to set the start time for the Sunday race programs back to 6 p.m. Effective this Sunday, July 12 the grandstands and pit gates will open at 4 p.m. with hot laps set to get underway at 6 p.m. with racing to follow.
(Washington, DC) — While our nation is focused on the coronavirus, Florida’s senators are also looking ahead to another threat, the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season which is supposed to be especially active. If you’ve ever spent time in a crowded hurricane shelter, you know how difficult it could be to stay six feet away from others. Republicans Rick Scott and Marco Rubio sent a letter yesterday to FEMA about the upcoming hurricane season asking some key questions. Scott and Rubio asked FEMA for guidance on how communities should handle operating shelters while social distancing guidelines are in place.Letter excert: “To ensure our communities are properly prepared, we urge FEMA to issue guidance to state and local governments, tribes and territories regarding hurricane preparedness and response that addresses Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and procedures in the wake of the Coronavirus. In addition, we ask that you take into account how to properly evacuate and shelter those who either have, or are suspected to have, the Coronavirus in the event of a storm. Consistent and sound guidance will be crucial to saving lives during a natural disaster.”Read full letter here. Hurricane season starts June 1st, and Scott and Rubio say hurricane plans need to be in place as soon as possible.
