Edmonton public schools to review its books to weed out list due

first_imgEDMONTON – Edmonton Public Schools says it’s taking down its book review site after a leading Indigenous author questioned why some of his graphic novels were on a not-recommended list.David Alexander Robertson, a Governor General-award-winning author who lives in Winnipeg, said he went through the Edmonton Public School Board’s “Books to Weed Out” section after he saw a post on Twitter calling the list a great resource.Robertson said he was disappointed to see his graphic novel series, “7 Generations,” on the list.“There’s a lot of Indigenous writers who are sharing their truths to own those stories about the difficult parts of our history that sometimes we don’t want to talk about, and these are the books we should be bringing into the classroom,” he said. “I’ve done a lot of work over the last decade and spoken to tens of thousands in classrooms across Canada using my books.“It’s pretty troubling to me to see that an entire public school system is not recommending some really valid, important texts — and not just mine, but from other writers as well.”Robertson’s four-book series, written for Grade 9 to 12 students, follows the story of an Aboriginal family from the early 19th century to the present day.On the book review site, the series was not recommended for use in Edmonton public schools because it contains “sensitive subject matter and visual inferencing of abuse regarding residential schools.”The review added that the books “require pre- and post-conversations with students” about the legacy of residential schools.“What is a school there for if they’re not going to have pre- and post-conversations about literature that begin in the classroom? That’s the whole point,” said Robertson, who won a Governor General’s literary award for his book, “When We Were Alone,” for younger students.Officials from the Edmonton Public School Board said in an emailed statement late Monday that the site was created to support teachers in selecting resources that reflect diverse First Nations, Metis and Inuit culture as well as identifying literature that may inaccurately portray Indigenous peoples.“Some books were highlighted for a number of reasons, including the ways in which they portrayed First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, imagery or language,” said Carrie Rosa, spokesperson for Edmonton Public Schools.“The intention was not to suggest these books be made unavailable, but to help educators make informed decisions around how they could use the resources.”Rosa said the language used for the title of the section did not reflect its intent.“For this reason and the fact that the site is now several years out of date, we will be taking the site down for review,” she said.Robertson said taking down the site is a start.“You need to look at who is making those decisions and why,” he wrote Tuesday on Twitter. “Many of the books on this list were #ownvoices books. Portraying truth. I’m Cree and a third-generation residential school survivor. My series is a series of hard truths that every Canadian should learn.”His concerns came less than a week after Alberta’s education minister apologized for an online social studies course asking students about the positive effects of residential schools.Students were asked: “A positive effect of residential schools was?” The four multiple choice options listed were: that children were away from home, they learned to read, they became civilized and they were taught manners.The question prompted a complaint from a student taking the course from the St. Paul Alternative Education Centre.Education Minister David Eggen apologized to the student, the student’s family and anyone else who had been exposed to the course.The province ordered school divisions to thoroughly review all courses offered to ensure they don’t include insensitive material.last_img read more

AFN National Chief Bellegarde backs NDPs Indigenous issues platform

first_imgAPTN National News ENOCH CREE NATION, Alta.–Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde is backing the NDP’s Indigenous issues platform saying it “addresses many of our key priorities.”Bellegarde issued the statement Thursday morning.“The NDP platform is a comprehensive response to our ‘closing the gap’ agenda,” said Bellegarde. “It addresses many of our key priorities and commits to high level engagement to work together to close the gap.”An AFN official said Bellegarde’s support for the NDP’s platform is not an official endorsement of the party.Mulcair unveiled his party’s platform on Indigenous issues Wednesday during an AFN hosted forum in Enoch, Alta. The AFN invited all federal party leaders to the event, but Mulcair was the only one to show up.Mulcair announced an NDP government would invest $1.8 billion over four years into core K-12 First Nation education which would grow to $4.8 billion over eight years.Bellegarde’s statement praised the NDP’s platform for its promises to create a cabinet committee on Indigenous issues, call an inquiry into murdered and missing Indigenous women in 100 days and invest $68 million in Indigenous languages.“We hold up all federal parties and party leaders that truly listen to First Nations and reflect our concerns,” said AFN National Chief Bellegarde.  “First Nations priorities are Canada’s priorities and I am pleased that yet another party is responding to our agenda.”This is the first time in the election where Bellegarde has singled out a party for their platform on Indigenous issues.news@aptn.ca@APTNNewslast_img read more

North American stocks close higher as oil price surges loonie edges lower

first_imgA surge in oil prices helped the energy sector boost Canada’s main stock index Tuesday, as North American stock markets regained some of the ground lost Monday.Broad losses kicked off the week as trade tensions between the U.S. and China flared up over potential action by the U.S. on technology export and investment restrictions, but trade fears eased up Tuesday, said Craig Jerusalim, portfolio manager at CIBC Asset Management.“The market rebounded today partially off the overreaction yesterday, and there was some downplaying of the trade concerns, and that’s clearly helped lift some of the North American equity markets. Canada’s particularly strong on the back of higher commodity prices.”Crude was the major commodity mover as the August crude contract closed up $2.45 or 3.6 per cent at US$70.53 due to a variety of factors.Oil moved on strong fundamental demand, the production outage that started last week at Syncrude Canada is finally starting to bite, and the most prevalent reason is new pressure from the Americans for its allies to stop buying Iranian oil, said Jerusalim.“Those three things together have resulted in the oil price being up well over three per cent today, which is a big single day move,” he said.U.S. President Trump has already made major steps to disrupt Iranian oil exports with the announcement he would pull out of a nuclear deal with the country and restore sanctions, so the latest move is just added pressure, said Jerusalim.“There was just more rhetoric and commentary coming from different sources of additional pressure. So it wasn’t new news, it was just the rhetoric being ratcheted up slightly.”The increase was enough, however, to counter negative pressure on oil after Saudi Arabia said it was planning record oil production for July of about 10.8 million barrels a day.The rise in energy helped the S&P/TSX composite index close up 96.13 points at 16,280.09, after losing 266.18 points a day earlier.The S&P/TSX capped energy index was up 2.9 per cent on the day to lead index gains on the market.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average closed up 30.31 points at 24,283.11. The S&P 500 index was up 5.99 points at 2,723.06 and the Nasdaq composite index was up 29.62 points at 7,561.63.The Canadian dollar averaged 75.15 cents US, down 0.02 of a US cent.The August gold contract ended down US$9 to US$1,259.90 an ounce. The July copper contract was even at US$2.99 a pound and the August natural gas contract was up one cent at US$2.93 per mmBTU.last_img read more

Assembly chief proposes annual meetings to chart progress on antipoverty goals

4 April 2008The General Assembly should meet every year until 2015 to take stock of the progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and to hold all partners to account for the commitments they have made to fight poverty and other ills, its President Srgjan Kerim said today at the conclusion of this week’s special debate on the issue. The General Assembly should meet every year until 2015 to take stock of the progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and to hold all partners to account for the commitments they have made to fight poverty and other ills, its President Srgjan Kerim said today at the conclusion of this week’s special debate on the issue.Mr. Kerim told the debate participants that while it was clear that significant progress has been made since world leaders pledged in 2000 to try to achieve the Goals, it has been uneven and still too slow, despite the availability of solutions.“The key issue that we all have to deliver on our commitments, scale-up our efforts and accelerate progress,” he said this morning as he wrapped up the four-day debate, adding that Africa and the world’s least developed countries (LDCs) need additional long-term assistance from the international community if they are to catch up.Mr. Kerim stressed that one point made repeatedly throughout this week’s debate was that “delivering on our commitments is a priority and that delivering results a necessity.“Donors need to provide the additional aid and debt relief that they have promised. And, developing countries need to integrate the Millennium Development Goals into national development plans, and speed up implementation of other commitments, including better governance.”He noted that many delegations have already endorsed his proposal for the annual meetings to chart progress worldwide.In addition to the meetings, the President called on the 192-member Assembly to mandate the UN Secretariat and the relevant UN funds, programmes and agencies to provide an annual MDG global monitoring report analyzing implementation across all countries.On 22 September at UN Headquarters in New York, UN Member States will gather for a major meeting on the MDGs, with the focus on Africa’s specific development needs. read more

Pot producers look past retail focus on medical IP for longterm revenues

TORONTO — Canadians are counting down to the legalization of recreational marijuana this summer, but industry players are already racing to get ahead in a potentially more lucrative market segment for the plant in the years to come: cannabis-based pharmaceuticals.Companies are researching and developing marijuana-based medicines that, they hope, will not only have broader appeal to doctors and patients, but will create lucrative intellectual property that will provide revenues far into the future.This is the next level of the “green rush,” said Har Grover, the chief executive officer of Toronto-based Scientus Pharma, a biopharmaceutical company focused on cannabis.“The potential down the road is far greater than what the recreational market sizes are… What you need to do is deliver medicine in a form that patients and physicians are used to using,” said Grover.Marijuana companies are eyeing the higher margins these value-added products can command compared to dried bud. Licensed medical marijuana producers also see the associated intellectual property as key to their future profitability, providing a competitive edge and a resilient profit stream as cannabis moves towards commoditization like every agricultural crop.While cannabis itself cannot be patented, licensed producers can apply for plant breeders rights protections for marijuana strains if they can sufficiently prove it is new. But innovations such as formulations, delivery mechanisms, and scientific techniques for testing have the potential to qualify for intellectual property protection.“There is certainly a desire by companies to develop cannabis products that can have defensibility from a business standpoint, from an IP standpoint,” said Neil Closner, chief executive of licensed producer MedReleaf.Scientus Pharma and MedReleaf are just two of a slew of Canadian of companies researching and conducting clinical trials examining medical applications for cannabinoids, which are a family of chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant.MedReleaf has been looking at the efficacy of cannabis for a range of conditions, including cancer and post-traumatic stress disorder. Scientus Pharma has been researching various conditions as well, but is focused on pain management, particularly neuropathic pain for cancer patients.Canopy Growth, Canada’s biggest licensed marijuana producer, launched its own biopharmaceutical company called Canopy Health Innovations two years ago.Bruce Linton, Canopy’s chief executive, said its subsidiary has been “running hard” and just last quarter filed 27 patents for combinations of cannabinoids and delivery mechanisms for sleep.Canopy and other Canadian licensed producers have been exporting cannabis to countries such as Germany as they open up their medical marijuana markets and require supply.As Linton expects most of these countries to eventually develop their own cannabis industries, Canopy’s proprietary products and methods can be still be sold or licensed there, generating revenue for the long term, he said.“Your real advantage is your methods and intellectual property, as well as your unique proven products,” he said.Canopy and Scientus Pharma are among the 32 firms with a dealers’ license from Health Canada, which gives them more latitude than a licensed producer to conduct activities with cannabis, such as testing. That number is up from just 22 in February last year.There is relatively little scientific research into the therapeutic effects of cannabis, in large part due to its long-held illegal status, and there is still much to learn about the plant, said Grover.“The cannabinoid plant is a gold mine of drug discovery and development for the next 10, 20, 50 years,” he said. “Much like stem cells were 30 years ago, and we’re getting to that stage now.”And Canada’s relatively progressive cannabis policy gives domestic scientists studying the plant a competitive edge on the global stage.In the U.S., marijuana use is legal in several states but remains illegal on a federal level, creating legal obstacles for research in the U.S., said Dr. Wilson Compton, Deputy Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse in the U.S.“If you work in a system that has any federal source of support (funding), there may be concerns… It’s really a conundrum, and that impedes science in some important ways,” he told a conference in Hamilton, Ont., last month.Meanwhile, the federal government said last week in its budget that it won’t apply a new excise tax to cannabis-based pharmaceutical products that can be obtained with a prescription. That would put it on par with other drugs, such as opioids, which do not get taxed while medical cannabis in its dried form will be subject to the excise tax.However, to qualify, the cannabis-based product must have a drug-identification number – a classification number from the government obtained after going through a stringent, approval process which allows manufacturers to market and sell the drug in Canada.Medical marijuana itself does not have a drug identification number (DIN), which has been a deterrent for doctors asked to prescribe it and a barrier for insurance coverage.Obtaining a DIN typically involves rigorous clinical research, generally including 10-year double blind studies.The clinical research being conducted by cannabis companies could also get them closer to getting a DIN.“Having a DIN would be a complete game changer,” said Vahan Ajamian, an analyst with Beacon Securities. “You’ll have no tax on medical, you’ll probably have better insurance coverage… and you’ll get doctors that will see this as real medicine.” read more

Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri suspended for remainder of 1st round

The Toronto Maple Leafs will have to do without Nazem Kadri for the rest of their first-round playoff series with the Boston Bruins.The centre has been suspended for the rest of the series by the NHL following his cross-check to the head of Boston winger Jake DeBrusk in the third period of the Bruins’ 4-1 victory in Game 2 on Saturday.Kadri was offered an in-person hearing by the NHL, meaning the league had the option to suspend him for more than five games.He laid the vicious cross-check after DeBrusk hit Patrick Marleau into the curved glass at the end of the bench.It’s the fifth suspension of Kadri’s career.The series is tied 1-1 with Game 3 going tonight at Scotiabank Arena. read more

Superior debuts Freedom™ Feeder

first_imgSuperior Industries, a US based manufacturer and global supplier of bulk material processing and handling systems, continues development of new material processing and handling solutions from Rock Face to Load Out™ with its launch of the new Freedom™ Vibrating Grizzly Feeder (VGF). Manufactured in widths to feed up 1,400 t/h, Superior engineers incorporated several key, differentiating features into their designs for the Freedom Feeder.For improved impact resistance and durability, Superior says material producers will have access to a much more robust pan section than some previous designs on the market. In addition, and exclusive to Superior, the grizzly cartridges are designed to bolt into the feeder’s frame. One set of bars are applicable for flat or 5° applications, so owners and operators can limit their stock to one style. Another key feature, says Superior engineers, are bottle jack lifting points incorporated into the spring section of the Freedom Feeder. Avoid lifting the pan with cranes or bucket loaders and simply use a bottle jack for spring replacement, which greatly increases safety during this common maintenance task.Superior designs and manufactures its new Freedom VGF in pan widths of 914 to 152 mm. The same machine can be incorporated into horizontal/flat or 5° incline applications. Options include customization to the feeder’s width, grizzly sections, punch plate and finger deck.last_img read more

The SupaBoy portable SNES is now available

first_imgPortable version of home consoles have long been the province of famed modders and hackers like Ben Heck, but now a portable Super NES has been mass-produced.The SupaBoy is a fully-featured portable system that plays original Super Nintendo (and Japanese Super Famicom) cartridges for just $79. The system, produced by a company called HyperKin, crams game-playing hardware, a battery, and screen into a system the shape of an original Super NES controller. Altogether it’s slightly bigger than a PSP at 8.5 x 4 x 1.5 inches. The 3.5-inch color LCD screen plays games in their original resolution. For those who need the highest-quality sound out of their portable SNES, there’s also a headphone jack with volume control.Amazingly, the system also works as a home-based console by including A/V output and two of the original seven-pin controller ports to connect to your old controller or a new replica one. As a result, it’s easy to relive those childhood moments of two players glued to their Super NES. On the downside, the system’s battery only lasts 2.5 hours on the go.We covered the SupaBoy back in April of this year, and compared to earlier reports the device gained $10 in price and lost half its projected battery life. Still, the final product is plenty impressive. Most importantly, you can actually buy it.The SupaBoy is showing as available now on Amazon and as a preorder on Hyperkin’s own online store.via EngadgetBlake’s OpinionThe SupaBoy signals a new age for video game hacking. Where portable retro systems were once just one-off oddities by master hackers, the proliferation of replica consoles – new machines designed to play old-school console games – has made it possible to design new electronics that make those replicas portable, like we have here.The NES, Genesis, and SNES have all been faithfully replicated, and knock-off systems that faithfully play games can be had for under $50. Expect replica systems to have a few more great advances, like the SupaBoy, in the future.last_img read more

New App Warns LA Users Of Impending Earthquake

first_imgStay on target Watch: Disneyland Stops Rides After Earthquake Shakes Southern CaliforniaNASA Images Show ‘Earthquake Island’ Swallowed Up By Sea Modern technology is not yet advanced enough to warn people of impending earthquakes.But the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is working on a solution.The government agency has developed an experimental earthquake early warning (EEW) system for “highest-risk areas”—namely California, Oregon, and Washington.ShakeAlert, part of a pilot program designed to caution Los Angeles residents of an impending quake, launched recently as a mobile app.Once downloaded, it requires users to enable notifications and set the phone’s location services to “Always On.” The alert includes a sound and message indicating the anticipated intensity level.“The purpose of the system is to reduce the impact of earthquakes and save lives and property by providing alerts to institutional users and the public,” according to the USGS.Using networks of ground-motion sensors and computer algorithms, ShakeAlert can detect an earthquake seconds after it begins, calculate its location and magnitude, and estimate the intensity of tremors.The creators, however, are quick to point out that, “depending on the user’s distance from the earthquake,” alerts may be delivered before, during, or even after the arrival of strong shaking.While more than 143 million Americans live in areas of “significant seismic risk” across 39 states, most of the country’s risk is concentrated on the West Coast.The average annual loss from earthquakes nationwide surpasses $5 billion, FEMA estimates. A majority of that figure comes from Washington, Oregon, and California—the latter single-handedly racking up some $3.5 billion in damage.Luckily for LA-based dwellers, the West Coast ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning System became sufficiently functional in the autumn of 2018, and hit mobile app stores on Dec. 31.More on Geek.com:Can Animals Predict Earthquakes?

A New Kind of Quantum Pump

first_img“We hope to apply quantum pumping to quantum computing architecture,” Ari Mizel, a professor at Penn State tells PhysOrg.com. In a world where scientists are striving to build quantum computing mechanisms and processes, various blueprints are on the table. And one of the integral parts of any quantum computing scheme is entanglement. Along with his student Sungjun Kim at Penn State and his postdoctoral researcher Kunal Das, now an assistant professor at Fordham University, Mizel proposes a quantum pumping method of delivering entangled electron pairs for use in quantum computing. A method that provides electron pairs and eliminates the background noise associated with single electron transport. Their findings are published in a Letter titled “Controlled Flow of Spin-Entangled Electrons via Adiabatic Quantum Pumping,” in Physical Review Letters.“Quantum pumping,” explains Mizel, “is a lot like swallowing. Electrons are in a channel, and as the walls deform periodically, it pushes stuff down.” Quantum pumping itself is not brand new, although the idea is a relatively recent development. Different experimental groups have been working with quantum pumping and use it to push charge or individual electrons with spin. What is different about the model of Kim, Das, and Mizel is that it would work by gathering paired electrons only, rather than “grabbing” single electrons and pumping them as well. Mizel’s team proposes a quantum pumping method that eliminates the transport of these single electrons that can provide background noise and increase decoherence.“We worked out a way to grab a couple of carriers at a time by changing interactions between the carriers,” says Mizel. The channels that hold the electrons are contorted, and the oscillations force the electron pairs through, carrying entanglement. Mizel explains, “The energy of individual electrons is not changed by the contortions. There is a counterbalance, so the individual electrons don’t feel the change. The electron pairs, though, feel it and get mushed closer together. Then the oscillations force them down and through.”This method would make it easier to eliminate non-entangled electrons. Right now, the background noise they create either has to be accounted for, or scientists attempt to catch and remove individual electrons. With this method devised by Mizel, Kim and Das, there would be no need to try to remove individual electrons; the carriers would just leave them behind, creating better entanglement. “There would be a stream of pairs, an individual electron will only feel contortion if it’s in proximity to a second electron. Then the carriers would be pushed down in groups.”Mizel admits that right now, this idea is in the theoretical stage. “We try to talk to people at conferences, and we’re familiar with who’s been doing quantum pumping in the past. Hopefully we can get some interest in this.” And it shouldn’t be that difficult. While Mizel concedes that this method of quantum pumping would be challenging to instigate, he also points out that it is not far beyond current scientific capabilities. “This doesn’t require any bold, brand new technology,” he insists. “It’s not far outside the possibilities. It would be interesting to see what could be achieved by this method.”Citation: Kunal K.

Handloom push

first_imgThe handloom sector plays a very important role in the country’s economy. It is one of the largest economic activity providing direct employment to over 70 lakhs persons engaged in weaving and allied activities. Handloom Industry is the symbol of self reliance and generates employment for millions of small weavers. A panel discussion on Revival of handloom and increasing earning of the the Handloom weavers, was recently held at the India International Centre, where the panelists were Ritu Kumar, eminent Fashion Designer, Sudha Pillai, Retd. IAS, Member Secretary of Planning Commission, Jaya Jaitley, Founder – President of  Dastkari Haat Samiti, Anita Lal,  the founder of Good Earth, along with SK Panda, IAS, Secretary, Ministry of Textiles.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“The economy of Panipat is based on several industrial agriculture, tourism and handloom. The city is famous for ‘panja durrie’, a kind of floor covering, which is in great demand in India and abroad. Originally, it was a traditional item made by village women but slowly the  product came to be recognised beyond Panipat and growing demand for durries resulted in a burgeoning numbers of private and state owned weaving units within the city,” said SK Panda, IAS, Secretary, Ministry of Textiles.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixFashion designer Ritu Kumar noted, “Handloom goods are the important cottage and home industries taken up by the people.

first_img You might also be interested in Camposol CEO Jorge RamirezIn late 2017, Peru’s leading blueberry exporter, Camposol, launched its blueberry brand, ‘The Berry That Cares’. One year on, Fresh Fruit Portal caught up with CEO Jorge Ramirez to hear about how the brand has been received in key export markets, plans for the “very intense” next season, and expectations for when Peru will overtake Chile in blueberry exports.FFP: How has everything been going with your blueberry brand since its launch in October 2017?JR: We are pleased to celebrate the first anniversary of our blueberry brand The Berry That Cares (TBTC). The intense marketing campaign we started in 2017 has continued throughout 2018 in our main markets: North America, Europe, and China.Our TBTC blueberries have been well received in China, where they were first offered in 2018. We now have a community of more than 90 thousand followers on Facebook, and our social networks remain constantly active to better consolidate a direct relationship with our consumers. We provide them with messages that support their interest in healthy lifestyles.FFP: Is this brand being used for all of Camposol’s fresh blueberry sales in all markets?JR: Yes, the brand is used for all our blueberries in their various presentations and is much lauded by our clients and consumers worldwide. Besides tastings in sale points in key markets, marketing activities include direct communication with consumers, also via social networks. To this end, the brand is on the Web and has accounts on Facebook, Instagram, QR codes, as well as its own Berry Blog, providing the latest on particular brand characteristics.FFP: What drove Camposol to create a brand for its blueberries? Are there any new opportunities that it has opened up for you?JR: Camposol is outstanding as its DNA not only guarantees commitment to excellence in quality, consistency and service, but stresses the most strident standards of social and environmental responsibility. Thus, we share our experience achieving our standards with our consumers to establish a socially and environmentally prosperous and sustainable business. The best way to ensure this has been to inform our consumers of the benefits offered by the differentiating characteristics of our brand.FFP: What consumer feedback have you received so far?JR: We have received very positive feedback regarding our brand. We have a significant electronic information community and we are constantly in touch with our consumers. We welcome their feedback and incorporate their ideas to our communications. It is interesting to observe how our consumers share common interests, such as a concern for leading a healthy life, the pleasure of having practical and nutritious recipes, the impact of our company on its participants, on our communities, and in protecting nature, among others. Therefore, we portend to inform our consumers and always remain connected and attuned to their needs and expectations.FFP: An important aspect of the “The Berry That Cares” brand is Camposol’s corporate and social responsibility. Could you speak about some of the key policies and initiatives that the company has in this area?JR: This initiative affirms Camposol’s commitment to excellence, in quality, consistency and service, as well as its social and environmental responsibility, seeking to generate shared value for all company stakeholders. Further to the freshness, quality and delicious taste of our blueberries, the brand affirms Camposol’s commitment to its consumers, the planet, the community and its workers by offering non-GMO (not genetically modified) products; by providing a fair and engaged relationship with its workers; by respecting the environment, and by developing a community in what was once a desert.Likewise, our biological control system is noteworthy in as much as it prioritizes natural pest management as well the use of beneficial microorganisms rather than pesticides, to benefit the health of our consumers. Moreover, Camposol was the first Peruvian agroindustry company to join the United Nations Global Compact and to report its performance according to the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) indicators. As a result of this work, we can say that Camposol blueberries “care”: Our blueberries care about you, our people, community and our planet. FFP: What are your plans for the brand over in the next season?JR: We envisage a very intense 2019 for our brand in all markets. We will focus on continuing our communication with our consumers through accounts on Facebook, Instagram, our website, Berry Blog, our QR codes on our labels, among others. We will also continue to execute promotional activities in-store, as well as advertising, participating in events, fairs, etc.FFP: How is everything going with Camposol’s aim of creating a year-round supply of blueberries?JR: Every season we extend our offer throughout the year. Technically, we can do it and every year we get retail programs that ask us to cover a longer period.FFP: What do you see as being the biggest benefit of offering year-round blueberries?JR: The greatest benefits are on both sides of the chain. Being a reliable supplier of volume throughout the different seasons is always preferred by customers. They see it as fewer headaches and safe base programs. On the production/operational side – lower costs, higher efficiency, less pressure on labor, etc.FFP: Do you have any plans to source blueberries from countries other than Peru?JR: So far, we only have production in Peru. Sourcing from other growers in other countries is always an option, but that is a project that has to be created based on trust and convenience for both parties. There are several countries in scope but nothing concrete as yet.FFP: How did your 2018 blueberry season go?JR: Very well. We ended with higher volumes than projected, earlier than planned, and with a better market than expected. We will finish as the largest blueberry exporter from Peru.FFP: You have been investing heavily in blueberry production in Peru over recent years. What kind of volume increase could we expect to see over the coming years?Next season, we believe Peru will have the similar volumes as that exported from Chile and greater than Chile’s in the following years.FFP: Given the rapidly rising production, what do you think the Peruvian blueberry industry must do in order to remain sustainable in the future?By getting stronger as an industry, by investing in wise marketing on the main markets, and working quickly on opening new ones.FFP: What efforts are underway at Camposol to ensure that the quality of fruit remains as high as it can possibly be?Heavy investments on technology in the field and at the packing levels, together with genetic development, of course.FFP: How do you expect Camposol and Peru’s market distribution dynamics to evolve over the coming years?

may restore public access to a beach that requires traveling across privately owned land the latest turn in a multi-year legal frenzy that has pitted the surfers who cross the property against the billionaire who owns it Judge Barbara Mallach of San Mateo Superior Court ruled against venture capitalist Vinod Khosla a co-founder of Sun Microsystems who was sued by the nonprofit Surfrider Foundation after his property manager blocked the public from accessing a beloved seaside spot known as Martins Beach At the center of the controversy is a low-slung metal gate that sits at the top of Martins Beach Road an offshoot of the Pacific Coast Highway that is the only way to access Martins Beach from dry land The road snakes across 53 acres that Khosla bought for $325 million in 2008 For two years his property manager allowed the public to occasionally visit a stretch of sand where locals have gone smelt-fishing and surfing and picnicking for decades But Khosla allowed the gate to be closed permanently in 2010 after his property manager received a letter from the county demanding that it stay open every day The conflict comes at a time when an influx of tech wealth has sharpened class tension in northern California "[Kholsa] believes that he can find a way to use his wealth and power to strong-arm the situation" says Chad Nelsen environmental director of the Surfrider Foundation Khosla doesn’t own a home on the land and says he has no plans to build one The decision to shut off access to the road was a way to take a stand about what he felt were his basic rights "This is a case about private property" Khosla told TIME in an email "We need to assert our rights and get the courts to clarify them" Khosla’s lawyers say they are considering appealing the verdict “We will continue to seek protection of the constitutional rights of private property owners that are guaranteed by the US and California Constitutions and that have long been upheld by the United States and California Supreme Courts” his attorneys said in a statement Surfrider’s argument rested on a seemingly bureaucratic detail The organization claimed that under the 1976 Coastal Act which gave a statewide Coastal Commission jurisdiction over beachfront land Khosla needed to apply for a development permit in order to close the gate The commission will often only grant development permits typically to build a home or another structure if the public gets an established right of way in return "Because theyre in charge of beach development theyre allowed to do this quid pro quo" says Arthur McEvoy a professor at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles "They can ask you in trade to dedicate a little easement if the development threatens to impede public access" The tricky matter is that while beaches are widely considered public people dont necessarily have a right to cross private property to get there Cases such as this one set precedents that resonate up and down Californias 840 miles of coastline The view of Martins Beach from the bottom of Martins Beach Road includes a rock formation known as the "shark’s tooth" Katy Steinmetz for TIME It’s easy to see why Martins Beach is beloved Its sands wrap around a cove with cliffs jutting out on either end creating a rare surfing spot protected from the wind and also preventing people from walking to the beach from the north or south Secluded and full of wildlife its dramatic rock formations are often blanketed by birds Seals pop their heads up between surfers and the beach For decades cars that wound their way down the road from Highway 1 paid a small fee to the landowners for parking and frequented a snack shop that has fallen into disrepair A now-defunct sign advertising $15 parking the amount Khosla’s employees charged when visitors were allowed still lays on the ground Steve Baugher Khoslas property manager testified at the trial that it was his decision to close the gate He also testified that he hired security guards to “deter trespassers”; their presence prompted five surfers to defiantly march past them last October to proclaim their right to be on the beach Known as the “Martins 5” the surfers were arrested by the county sheriff but the District Attorney declined to prosecute–inspiring more surfers to take advantage of this legal limbo and hop the fence with abandon In California public access to the beach is protected by the public trust doctrine a common law that can be traced back to the English crown proclaiming rights to all submerged lands in order to let the public use the water above them for fishing and navigation "Our culture abhors private beaches and generally speaking our law abhors private beaches as well" McEvoy said "And any landowner is going to want to keep people away from their beach" In an earlier case that went Khosla’s way a group called the Friends of Martins Beach used a different angle to sue testing a clause in the state constitution that declares that no entity shall "exclude the right of way to such water whenever it is required for any public purpose" In a 2013 ruling another San Mateo Superior Court judge said that because Martins Beach had been part of a land grant that settled the Mexican-American war in 1848 a year before the constitution was adopted the intentions of that document were immaterial Beyond the ongoing court cases two other avenues may force the drama to a close One is a bill sponsored by State Senator Jerry Hill a San Mateo Democrat that would require the State Lands Commission to consider purchasing the road if negotiations with Khosla for public access fail Meanwhile the Coastal Commission which has been fielding the public’s complaints about the closure of Martins Beach is asking people to write in about how theyve used the area in the past That testimony may prove theres a historic right of access that Attorney General Kamala Harris can sue to restore on the Commissions behalf "The Commission is trying very hard to bring it to a close" says Nancy Cave a commission manager who was part of negotiations with Khosla’s team that went nowhere "We are frustrated too" Khosla notes that he is not the first owner of the property to limit access pointing out that previous owners closed the gate during certain hours and seasons and even inconvenient days In court property manager Baugher testified that he received a letter from the county demanding that the gates be open year round and parking be charged at the rate of $2 what beachgoers paid in 1973 Khosla has also accused Surfrider and the Coastal Commission of attempting to "blackmail and coerce him" charges both deny Surfrider emphasizes that Khosla has allowed changes that are far from what his predecessors didlike painting over a billboard that used to welcome people to come down from Highway 1 to the beach turning it into a dark green slab Surfrider had hoped that the court would also fine Khosla for failing to apply for a permit but Mallach declined saying that those who closed the gate had acted in good faith that they had the legal right to do so Nonetheless Surfrider championed the decision as a “huge victory” "Todays court decision upholding the Coastal Act is an important victory for Martins Beach and ultimately strengthens the public’s right to beach access in California" Angela Howe Surfrider’s legal director said in a statement "The Surfrider Foundation remains vigilant to protect beach access rights not only in this case but also in other cases where the beach is wrongfully cut off from the public" Write to Katy Steinmetz at katysteinmetz@timecomHe said the camp will eventually be commemorated and the unity and historic gathering of hundreds of tribal nations
