COX 2008 Fri, 23 Sep 2022 13:36:35 +0000 en-US hourly 1 COX 2008 32 32 South African Table Grape Industry Ready to Rebound | Article Fri, 23 Sep 2022 10:55:06 +0000

After a difficult year, there is new determination and confidence in the South African table grape sector ahead of the 2023 season.

South Africa is now less than two months away from the start of the 2022/23 table grape season and the industry has said it is ready to once again confirm its status as a preferred supplier in international markets. .

Industry organization SATI said in its first outlook for the new season that growers and stakeholders have proactively planned and assessed how to improve quality on farms and mitigate as much risk as possible during product transport.

“The focus has been on developing and improving collaborative working relationships within the industry to help overcome the challenges faced last season,” said SATI Managing Director AJ Griesel. “Significant progress has been made and South Africa is poised to confirm its status as a supplier of quality table grapes to the southern hemisphere.”

Griesel acknowledged that the 2021/22 season for South African table grapes had been one of the toughest since the post-deregulation era two decades ago.

Increases in production costs, transportation costs and logistical challenges have put significant pressure on producers.

“In preparation for the upcoming season, SATI has worked closely with industry players including Transnet, Port of Cape Town, Hortgro, Fresh Produce Exporters Forum, as well as other associations across the industry such as the CGA to develop proactive plans that mitigate against these challenges, and therefore help the industry move forward,” Griesel continued.

“By intensifying the drive to deliver excellent quality grapes, South African growers and specialist technical support teams remain committed to producing, packing and shipping top quality grapes.”

He said ongoing on-farm production improvements included post-harvest protocols and product handling, and feedback received from various industry technical forums had been positive.

Quality and crop control remain at the forefront and these initiatives have already begun, he said.

As part of monitoring and maintaining optimal temperatures in cold stores, SATI is currently developing a cold chain project to monitor temperatures from the packing station to the market in collaboration with producers and exporters.

Whenever possible, growers pack their own fruit in on-farm warehouses,” Griesel noted. “This is a significant investment of capital and resources that demonstrates the growers’ continued commitment to growing and exporting quality produce.

Regarding market access, South African exports of table grapes have increased their presence year on year over the past five seasons, he pointed out.

“SATI is committed to maintaining established industry markets while continuing its market development efforts in emerging markets.”

South Africa remained a quality southern hemisphere producer in its traditional markets, and export figures provided positive indicators of the industry’s expansion in the northern hemisphere, he said. declared.

The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to the European Union over the past four years, exports had increased by 6 percent.

“UK exports remained stable, showing a 4% increase in CAGR over the same period,” he continued. “Exports to Canada have increased by 19% CAGR over the past four years, while exports to the United States have increased by 40% CAGR over the same period. The industry is eager to expand further into the US market.

Griesel said that compared to other producing countries in the southern hemisphere, South Africa had the advantage of being close to Europe and of free trade agreements with the European Union and the United Kingdom. United.

“Continued expansion into Southeast Asian markets remains one of SATI’s strategic objectives, and significant progress has been made in the Philippines.”

SATI’s Chinese market development campaign was successfully launched two years ago and continued last season despite Covid-19 restrictions in China.

“The industry looks forward to supplying this market with quality South African table grapes in the 2022/23 season,” he added.

NOTICE: Do not be discouraged by reserving a table for one person Tue, 20 Sep 2022 19:30:00 +0000

8:30 PM September 20, 2022

I was doing a photo shoot at a great restaurant in Norwich last week, which is one of the best parts of my job (there’s always something to snack on!). I arrived at the end of the lunch service, intending to use the remaining daylight hours of the afternoon to photograph several dishes for use in newspapers, magazines and social media.

As I sat with a cup of coffee waiting for the last diners to finish their lunch, I spotted a lady having lunch at a single table, and I have to say I felt a pang of jealousy.

This may surprise regular readers, who will know that my idea of ​​heaven is spending time around the dinner table with friends, enjoying great food and lively conversation. But once in a while, it’s wonderful to eat alone, selfishly enjoying a table for one.

It used to be that lone diners were given the worst tables, seen by restaurants as a loss of revenue – a lone diner invariably ended up on a table that could seat two people. But there are signs that attitudes towards those who want their own business are changing, and I was very pleased to see that the lady from the Norwich restaurant had been seated at a choice table, just next to the window.

I’m well aware that for millions of people, eating alone is the default position, and I suspect the thrill of doing so diminishes quickly if it happens every day. For those who are widowed or divorced, or who simply live a solitary existence, the lack of companionship at the dinner table can simply reinforce feelings of loneliness.

This is a particular problem for older people, who may not have the opportunities to get out and build their social circles that younger people find easier. According to Age UK, around one in 10 people over retirement age are or are at risk of being malnourished, either because they can’t get to the shops or because loneliness has deprived them incentive to cook good meals.

When my stepfather passed away 12 years ago, my wife and I feared that my stepmother would fall into the same trap. In addition to making sure she had plenty of company for at least some of her meals, we also signed her up for a weekly vegetable box delivery.

It was a clever plan: being from the generation of war who hates waste (we have so much to learn…), we knew that she would cook, if only to deplete the regular supply of ingredients.

I’m happy to report that at the age of 85, she still cooks great meals for herself every day, and a major topic of conversation on our weekly Sunday night Zooms is the menu of the week.

Cooking for one person can be a particular challenge, not least because supermarket pack sizes are invariably family-sized, and many cookbooks assume you’re cooking for at least four people. The solution to the buying problem is simple: try to buy your food from smaller independent shops (any decent butcher, for example, will be happy to cut portions for one person). And there are now plenty of other cookbooks aimed at single cooks.

But even for those of us who are blessed with large households or busy social lives, there’s still a magic to sitting down to eat alone once in a while. If you cook your own meal, you can be completely selfish about the ingredients you use, tweak the dish the way you like it, and not worry about whether someone else will find your cooking too spicy, too sweet. or just too weird.

But the ultimate solo luxury is that table for one at a favorite restaurant. According to restaurant reservations company Open Table, there was a 160% increase in solo diners in the four years to 2019 (unclear what effect Covid has had since).

Interestingly, research suggests that more of these solo diners are women than men, perhaps a reflection of a more accommodating attitude by dining establishments to make women dining alone feel more comfortable.

In France, the solitary client has always been well received and well treated, and this is fortunately the case here too. Solo diners are much more likely to be there for the food, to enjoy the cooking and, against all odds, to have fun.

So the next time you see someone at a single table, either reading a book or just people watching, don’t feel sorry for them; chances are they’re having a good old time.

How many humans were there in the Matrix? What about Zion? Mon, 19 Sep 2022 15:00:00 +0000

The number of people living in the Matrix and the number of people living in Zion are both crucial to understanding the blueprints of the machines in the Matrix movies. Essentially, the only two parameters of the Matrix the movies, the Matrix simulation and Zion represent the prison of the mind and the real world respectively. However, the scale of the Matrix simulation compared to Zion is often overlooked.

Whereas The matrix sees Morpheus and the Nebuchadnezzar crew briefing both Neo and the audience on everything they need to know about Zion, the last remaining human city, only in The matrix Reloaded that audiences actually see what Zion looks like. Located as far from the surface as possible, the innumerable caves that form Sion use the earth’s core as their main source of energy. The machines, on the other hand, use the humans of the Matrix as batteries.


Related: Why Smith Betrayed The Other Matrix Agents

The Matrix the films had a few shots showing the vastness of the machines’ powerhouse and the structure where the harvest pods are stored, but none of these ever revealed the true scale of how many humans the machines were keeping at bay. inside the Matrix simulation. Likewise, Zion’s unique architecture makes it difficult to imagine how many people actually lived in the real world. Here is a comparison between the Matrix population and the population of Zion.

How many humans lived in the matrix simulation

When describing his feelings towards humanity and the Matrix simulation in the first Matrix movie, Agent Smith mentions “Billions of people are just living their lives, oblivious.” This line establishes that the Matrix’s population is in the billions, although no solid numbers are given in any of the films. That said, a first draft of The matrix Reloaded reveals that there were 6.5 billion in the Matrix. While that specific number never made it into the movie, 6.5 billion people living inside the Matrix makes sense given everything that was established in the movie. Matrix movies. Earth’s population in the real world was around 6 billion in 1999, and although a significant portion of humanity was killed during the First Machine War, the machines had found a way to artificially create more people. humans to serve as batteries within the Matrix.

How many humans lived in Zion

At the highest point of its population, which is just before the machines finally attack Zion, as seen in The matrix Reloaded and The matrix Revolutions, Sion is home to approximately 250,000 people. That’s the same number of sentries the machines sent to destroy Zion in The matrix Reloadedmeaning there was basically one sentry per human attacking Zion in Reloaded and Revolutions. It’s important to note that 250,000 is Zion’s usual maximum population each cycle, because every time the machines restart the Matrix, the entire population of Zion is killed.

In fact, at the end of each cycle, the analyst gives The One an ultimatum – release 23 people from the matrix to rebuild Zion and start a new generation of free humans or keep fighting and risk extinguishing the humanity. All five Ones before Neo were given the same ultimatum, and all chose to restart the cycle by freeing 23 new people from the Matrix. Zion’s population growth from 23 to a quarter million in less than 100 years may seem steep, but it’s important to remember that countless more people were later released from the Matrix and joined Zion.

Related: How and Why the First Matrix Was Created

The people of Sion explain a lot about the plans of the machines

The fact that the Matrix’s population numbered in the billions while only a quarter of a million lived in Zion puts into perspective how little threat humanity really posed to the machines. Zion was never humanity’s greatest hope, it was one piece of a puzzle put together by the machines to keep humanity in check for hundreds of years. Zion’s purpose was to give the liberated human a false sense of hope, which is why none of the Matrix the characters, not even Morpheus or the Council members, knew the whole truth about how many years had passed since the machines took over the world. Beginning with the 23 humans freed by The One, the machines only allowed Zion to grow so much before unleashing the sentries to destroy the human city – thus keeping humanity in an endless loop.

Make-Ahead Jar Salad Stays Fresh for Days: Healthy Table Recipe Sat, 17 Sep 2022 12:02:17 +0000

This week, we’re excited to share another dish to add to your make-ahead meal list — and this one comes in a glass mason jar. The big advantage? Our healthy Mediterranean salad can stay fresh in a jar for several days.

The trick is to put the dressing — homemade or store-bought — in the bottom of the jar. Then add hard vegetables like onions and bell pepper to enhance the flavor of the dressing. Follow this with soft vegetables like cucumbers and zucchini. Then add whole grain pasta and a layer of protein – tuna, chicken and/or beans. Finally, add the lettuce leaves and nuts or seeds. The greens will stay crisp and the whole salad will stay fresh in this glass jar. When you’re ready to eat the salad, simply shake the jar to spread the dressing and grab a fork.

After:Slow Cooker Chicken Sliders Save Time

Another advantage of this salad is time saving. It is easier to wash and cut a few more vegetables at once than to do the same task several times during the week. Get your creative kids or difficult adults involved. Let them choose their favorite vegetables and make individual salads in separate little jars. For those who like a little sweetness – garnish with some raisins or dried cranberries.

After:Fresh summer peaches are even sweeter on the grill
