Increases Hit Hard.

Posted on by

first_imgWhile many Georgians celebrate the news of low increases in food prices, some Georgians will still struggle.University of Georgia experts with the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences forecasted this week that food prices will rise only 2 to 2.5 percent this year. While that’s good news for most consumers, for farmers and low-income Georgians the news isn’t so good.The low increase is greatly due to surplus supplies of food, which lowers prices for farmers, but not for consumers.”Food prices would be more effected by farm prices if consumers wanted more fresh food,” said Bill Thomas, an agricultural economist with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “But people no longer want fresh produce. They want it cut up, seasoned, freeze-dried, pre-packaged and ready to cook. That costs more money.”Farmers only make 23 cents of each dollar charged for food. “The rest,” Thomas said, “goes toward paying for advertising, packaging, transportation, labor and other preparation costs.”Georgia farmers are facing low prices for commodities ranging from corn to cotton.”We are facing poor yields and the lowest prices in 20 years for cotton,” Thomas said. “We have record supplies worldwide for corn, so we are seeing low prices.”Peanuts growers aren’t seeing any premiums for their products, and are getting only average program prices.The U.S., as well as Brazil, has record crops in soybean, keeping prices low.”The midwest enjoyed good weather and record yields, while we were hit with the drought and bad yields, sticking us with low prices,” Thomas said.While the food price increases may seem low to most Georgians, for many low-income Georgians and those who depend on shrinking federal help, they can be a strain on household budgets.”Any price fluctuation affects the poor more significantly than any other group,” said Bill Bolling, executive director of the Atlanta Community Food Bank. “For those who are having a difficult time paying rent, buying food and caring for their children, even a slight increase makes it even more difficult.”Household income also has an impact on what is spent on food.”Our latest figures show that a family whose income is between $5,000 and $9,999 per year will spend about $2,389 on food. That’s 32 percent of their income,” Thomas said. Families earning $30,000 to $39,999 spend more,$4,710, on food but that is just 14.7 percent of their income.last_img read more

UN Officials Censoring Chinese Firewall Protest?

Posted on by

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#news#web At a UN-sponsored event today in Egypt, UN officials demanded the removal of a poster that alluded to the issue of Internet restrictions in China.The poster was an advertisement for Access Controlled, an MIT publication about the so-called Great Firewall of China, one of the first national Internet filtering systems and a policy that has come under harsh international criticism. The poster was being displays at the fourth annual meeting of the Internet Governance Forum in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. The purpose of the forum is to support UN mandates regarding the sustainability, robustness, security, stability, and development of the Internet.Its mission makes the poster’s removal all the more puzzling. The poster, displayed at an Open Net Initiative reception, was apparently removed because it contained a sentence that violated UN policy. The sentence in question reads as follows:The first generation of Internet controls consisted largely of building firewalls at key Internet gateways; China’s famous “Great Firewall of China” is one of the first national Internet filtering systems.The goal of the Open Net Initiative is to investigate, expose and analyze Internet filtering and surveillance. We remain unclear on the exact policies the poster violated; however, we must strongly question the act of its removal, which amounts to censorship of protest of censorship – a censorship sandwich, if you will, which few of us can find appetizing.“It is ironic that while people are allowed to gather here to discuss freedom of expression online, censorship, and surveillance practices on the Internet, we are being restricted in expressing our views,” said Al Alegre of the Foundation for Media Alternatives, a member of the ONI Network, to reporters today. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.In our previous coverage of Chinese censorship of Internet access, we alerted readers to the fact that every new computer sold after July 1, 2009 would be equipped with software “intended to block pornography and possibly filter politically disruptive material, all while quietly gathering private user data.” This “Green Dam Youth Escort” software is closely related, both ideologically and politically, to the “Golden Shield Project,” China’s national firewall aimed at censorship and surveillance of user activity.

He told The Sunday Times: “Until they fix it, United’s back five will be fire-fighting.”They can spend massively on Maguire, give Victor Lindelof a new five-year deal, De Gea four more lucrative years and sign Wan-Bissaka for £50million and it will all be money down the drain.”He added: “United are trying to rebuild from the back after signing Harry Maguire from Leicester City for £80m and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace for £50m.”I rate Maguire.
