Conte on his and Batshuayi’s future, Moses, Hazard’s injury and dealing with West Ham

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesChelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked about a number of issues at his press conference ahead of Monday’s game at West Ham. Here’s some of what the Italian had to say. On whether he has received an offer from Inter Milan“Me personally? No.” On his futureEmbed from Getty Images“I think the situation is very clear. I have a contract with Chelsea and we are trying to do something important with the club for the present and for the future.“The only problem for me is that the family is missing me for sure.“They stay in Italy and I am working for the future to try to bring them here and to stay together, because my family is missing me.“The story (that he could leave) tells this, but I am not worried.“With my players I want to work very hard and I think we have to continue in this way to do something important this season, because we are in the right position.” On Eden Hazard“We have a little problem for Eden. In training on Wednesday he got a kick, but I think it’s nothing serious. Everyone else is fit.” On facing West HamEmbed from Getty Images“I think that we must pay attention in the whole squad and team because in the cup they beat us (in the EFL Cup).“The result wasn’t good. For sure we want to take three points in this game. It is a difficult game because we all know the difficulty in this type of game – a derby against West Ham.“We are preparing very well in the right way with the right commitment and focus.“It will be tough. It will be pressure, positive or negative pressure, but we are ready to to play this game and to try to do better than the last game.” On dealing with Andy CarrollEmbed from Getty Images“For sure Andy Carroll is a really good player, very strong physically and we must pay good attention.“We are preparing different solutions to try to limit the strength of our opponents but it is important for us to play our football, with our philosophy to try to play, to try to score and defend very well with high intensity.” On whether Michy Batshuayi has a future at ChelseaEmbed from Getty Images“The most important thing is the present. To work hard in the present and then at the end of the season we will see every situation with every single player.“Now he is working very well for us. He must continue to work and everything can happen.“If he shows me he deserves to play I am ready to put him in the starting 11. If this doesn’t happen then we will continue this way.” On Victor Moses’ new contractEmbed from Getty Images“It is right that Victor Moses deserves a new contract. He is a really good guy and a good player with a good technique and a great desire to fight. I think he deserved this.“When I saw him during pre-season I was very pleased with him to stay here for the whole season. He told me he was very happy to try to prove himself.“He said ‘I am ready to play for Chelsea’. I am pleased for him.”See also:Conte on Bakayoko, Hazard, Pedro’s setback and facing Spurs   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Sudafrika: Handelsoffen

first_imgSudafrika ist einer der am weitesten entwickelten und Erfolg versprechendsten Entwicklungsmarkte, bietet eine einzigartige Kombination von hoch entwickelter Infrastruktur eines Industrielandes und einer lebendigen neu entstehenden Marktwirtschaft.Dazu steht es auch fur die am weitesten entwickelte und produktivste Wirtschaft Afrikas.Hier nun einige Grunde fur den Handel mit Sudafrika:Solide WirtschaftspolitikVorteilhafte rechtliche und wirtschaftliche RahmenbedingungenInfrastruktur der WeltklasseZugang zu den AbsatzmarktenDas Tor von AfrikaHandelsreform, strategische AllianzenBetriebskosten in SudafrikaGunstige Geschaftsbedingungen in SudafrikaLeistungsfahigkeit der Industrie, innovative TechnologieWettbewerbsfahigkeitSolide WirtschaftspolitikSeit dem Einzug der Demokratie im Jahre 1994 wird Sudafrikas Wirtschaft einer strukturellen Umgestaltung unterzogen, mit der Einfuhrung von makro-okonomischen Richtlinien, die darauf abzielen, den inlandischen Wettbewerb, das Wachstum und die Beschaftigung zu fordern, wie auch die Orientierung der Wirtschaft nach außen zu steigern.Wirtschaftliche Schlusselreformen haben den Anstieg der makro-okonomischen Stabilitat auf einer hohen Ebene gefordert. Steuern wurden reduziert, Tarife gesenkt, das Finanzdefizit wurde unter Kontrolle gebracht und die Devisenkontrolle gelockert.Auch die Regierungsausgaben wurden umstrukturiert im Hinblick auf ein Sozialwesen, das dazu beitragt, jedem Sudafrikaner eine bessere Lebensqualitat zu ermoglichen.Sudafrikas Zentralbank, die SA Reserve Bank, behalt ihre Unabhangigkeit von der Regierung bei. Das auf die Senkung der Inflation abzielende Programm der Bank hat Erfolge gezeigt. Der Realzinssatz hat sich stabilisiert und die Wahrung bleibt im wettbewerbsfahigen Rahmen. Die Verbraucherinflation lag 2006 durchschnittlich bei 4,6 – ein Ruckgang im Vergleich zu den 9,8% aus dem Jahr 1994.Der Staat lasst keinen Zweifel daran, dass auslandische Investitionen in Sudafrika willkommen sind und schafft ein investorenfreundliches Klima.2005 begann die Regierung mit dem Entwurf einer neuen Planung, die die Wirtschaftswachstumsrate bis 2014 auf 6% des BIP steigern und Arbeitslosigkeit verringern soll. Die Einfuhrung dieses Planes – der groß angelegte staatliche Investitionen in Infrastruktur, Kleinbetriebe und Kompetenzentwicklung wie auch gezielte Interventionen in bestimmten Wirtschaftssektoren beinhaltet – hat begonnen.Siehe: Sudafrika: WirtschaftsuberblickVorteilhafte rechtliche und wirtschaftliche RahmenbedingungenSudafrika hat progressive rechtliche Rahmenbedingungen von Weltklasse. Die Gesetzgebung in Bezug auf Handel, Arbeit und Seeangelegenheiten ist besonders gut entwickelt, wahrend Gesetze die sich auf Wettbewerbsgrundsatze, Copyright, Patente, Warenzeichen und Streithandel beziehen den internationalen Normen und Abmachungen angepasst sind.Die Unverletzlichkeit von Vertragen wird vom burgerlichen Recht geschutzt und unabhangige Gerichte garantieren die Achtung der Handelsrechte und pflichten. Die Unabhangigkeit der Justiz wird durch die Verfassung garantiert.Sudafrikas Finanzsysteme sind hoch entwickelt, robust und geordnet. Sudafrikanische Regelungen des Bankwesen gehoren zu den besten der Welt, und die Branche wird zu den Top 10 der Welt gerechnet. Auslandische Banken sind zahlreich vertreten und Einrichtungen fur den elektronischen Bankverkehr sind weit reichend vorhanden, in dieser Branche hat Internet Banking Enwicklungspotenzial.Die JSE Limited gehort in Punkto Marktkapitalisierung zu den 20 wichtigsten Borsen der Welt. Die JSE Reglements und ihre Durchsetzung basieren auf den weltweit optimalen Verfahren, wahrend die Systeme fur automatisierten Handel, Abrechnung, Transfer und Erfassung anderen in der Welt ebenburtig sind.Infrastruktur der WeltklasseSudafrika hat eine Infrastruktur der Weltklasse – mit einem modernen Transportsystem, relativ preiswerter und weithin verfugbarer Energieversorgung, sowie einem hoch entwickelten Telekommunikationswesen.Und diese werden rechtzeitig zur Fifa Fußball-WM 2010 noch erheblich verbessert und erweitert.Die Regierung hat massive Infrastrukturprojekte als Schlussel zur Ankurbelung der Wirtschaftswachstumsrate des Landes und der Schaffung von Arbeitsplatzen ermittelt und hat Milliarden von Rand bereit gestellt, um die Investitionswelle ins Rollen zu bringen.Siehe: Sudafrikas InfrastrukturZugang zu den AbsatzmarktenSudafrika, an der sudlichsten Spitze des afrikanischen Kontinentes gelegen, ist ideal positioniert fur den leichten Zugang zu den 14 Landern der Southern African Development Community (SADC) mit einem kombinierten Markt, der mehr als 250 Millionen Menschen umfasst, wozu auch die Inseln entlang der Ostkuste Afrikas und sogar die Golfstaaten und Indien gehoren.Sudafrika dient auch als Umschlagplatz zwischen den Entwicklungsmarkten in Zentral- und Sudamerika und den Schwellenlandern in Sudasien und dem Fernen Osten.Hauptschiffahrtswege fuhren an der Kuste Sudafrikas entlang durch die sieben Handelhafen, die das weitaus großte, am besten ausgestattete und leistungsfahigste Netzwerk des Kontinentes bilden, in den sudlichen Atlantik und den Indischen Ozean.Diese Hafen sind nicht nur die Kanale des Handels zwischen Sudafrika und seinen Partnern in der SADC und der South African Customs Union, sondern erfullen auch die Funktion eine Drehscheibe des Verkehrs von und nach Europa, Asien, den Amerikas und der Ost- und Westkuste Afrikas.Das Tor von AfrikaSudafrika selbst ist nicht nur ein wichtiger Entwicklungsmarkt, es ist auch eine Voraussetzung fur den Einstieg in andere schwarzafrikanische Markte. Das Land grenzt an Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Swaziland und Lesotho, seine gut entwickeltes Strassen- und Schienensystem bilden die Plattform und Infrastruktur fur den Überlandtransport bis ins hinterste Schwarzafrika.Überdies besitzt Sudafrika Kompetenzen im lokalen Markt und Vertrieb, die fur kommerzielle Vorhaben in Afrika zwingend erforderlich sind.Das Land spielt eine wichtige Rolle in Energieversorgung, humanitarer Hilfe, Transport, Kommunikation und Außeninvestitionen. Einem Bericht der LiquidAfrica Research im Jahr 2003 zufolge war Sudafrika zwischen 1990 und 2000 der großte Investor in das ubrige Afrika, mit einem Investitionsdurchschnitt von 1,4 Milliarden US Dollar, uber die Dekade gerechnet Investitionen in der Hohe von circa 12, 5 Milliarden US Dollar.Sudafrika ist auch eine dynamische Kraft innerhalb der 14 Mitglieder starken South African Development Community (SADC), und war ein Schlusselfigur in der Entwicklung der New Partnership for Africa’s Development (Nepad), das sozial-okonomische Erneuerungsprogramm der Afrikanischen Union.Handelsreform, strategische AllianzenSeit der Unterzeichnung des GATT-Abkommens (Global Agreement on Tariffs and Trade) im Jahr 1994 hat Sudafrika eine aktive Rolle im globalen Handelssystem ubernommen und eine Reihe von Handelsreformen – inklusive der Reduzierung der Zolltarife und Rationalisierungsprogramme – wurden eingefuhrt.Der Zugang zum Markt wurde durch die freien Handelsabkommen mit der Europaischen Union und den Landern der Southern African Development Community (SADC) und der Einfuhrung des African Growth and Opportunity Act durch die USA verbessert.In den vergangenen Jahren hat Sudafrika ebenfalls enge Beziehungen zu Markten im restlichen Afrika sowie in Asien und Lateinamerika geknupft. Die 2003 begrundete Indien-Brasilien-Sudafrika-Allianz (IBSA) hat sich zum Ziel gesetzt, den Handel zwischen diesen drei Landern innerhalb der nachsten Jahre von den derzeitigen 6 Milliarden auf 10 Milliarden US-Dollar zu steigern. Außerdem ist das Land ein Haupthandels- und Investment-Partner fur China geworden. Das Reich der Mitte engagiert sich seit dem vergangenen Jahrzehnt verstarkt auf dem afrikanischen Kontinent.Betriebskosten in SudafrikaDank des gunstigen Devisenkurses ist Sudafrika eines der preiswertesten Lander fur Auslander, die sich hier niederlassen oder geschaftlich engagieren mochten – mit einer Infrastruktur, die dem Standard der Industrielander entspricht, und mit einem hervorragenden Preis-Leistungs-Verhaltnis.Auch zahlen Sudafrikas Energiekosten weltweit immer noch zu den niedrigsten. Bei den Petroleumpreisen rangiert das Land im Wettbewerb ebenfalls weit vorne, mit privatwirtschaftlichen und multinationalen Ölfirmen, die nahezu alle importierten Petroleumprodukte im Suden Afrikas raffinieren und vermarkten.Und die Telekommunikationskosten sinken. Seit kurzem macht der Festnetzanbieter Neotel dem bisherigen Staatsmonopolisten Telkom Konkurrenz. Die Regierung ergreift Maßnahmen zur Gewahrleistung einer preiswerteren und besser verfugbaren Bandbreitenkapazitat. Großprojekte zur Verlegung von Unterwasser-Glasfaserkabeln entlang der Ost- und Westkuste Afrikas zur Verbesserung der Kommunikation des Kontinents mit dem Rest der Welt werden in Angriff genommen.Sudafrikas Lohnkosten sind bedeutend geringer als die anderer Entwicklungsmarkte, einschließlich Mexiko, Ungarn, Malaysia und Singapur und die Arbeitsproduktivitat des Landes hat sich in den letzten Jahren erheblich verbessert. Umfassende Arbeitsgesetze haben seit 1994 wesentlich zur Senkung der aufgrund von Arbeitskampfen verlorenen Arbeitstage beitragt.Sudafrikas Korperschaftssteuer – 2008/2009 auf 28% reduziert – ist im Vergleich zu der anderer Entwicklungslander gunstig, und die Zeichen fur weitere Ermaßigungen stehen gut.Gunstige Geschaftsbedingungen in SudafrikaSudafrika rangiert auf dem 35. Platz der 178 Lander in dem von der Weltbank und der IFC veroffentlichten Doing Business 2008 Report. In diesem jahrlichen Bericht werden die Zeit, der Kostenaufwand und die burokratischen Hurden fur Unternehmen gemessen.Sudafrika ubertrifft damit Industrielander wie Portugal (37) und Spanien (38) sowie wichtige Schwellenlander wie Mexiko (44), China (83), Russland (106), Indien (120) und Brasilien (122).Der Bericht listet Sudafrika auf dem neunten Platz, was den Investorenschutz anbetrifft. Außerdem verzeichnet er erhebliche Verbesserungen in den Bereichen Existenzgrundung und Kreditvergabe.Leistungsfahigkeit der Industrie, innovative TechnologieSudafrikas Wirtschaftswachstumsrate liegt weit uber dem Mittelwert fur Entwicklungsmarkte.Die Produktfertigung des Landes wird immer starker technikorientiert, mit High-Tech Fertigungsbereichen – wie Anlagen, wissenschaftlicher Ausrustung und Fahrzeuge – und kann sich seit 1994 eines stetig wachsenden Anteils an der gesamten Produktionsleistung erfreuen.Sudafrikas technologische Forschung und seine Qualitatsstandards sind weltweit anerkannt. Das Land hat eine beachtliche Anzahl fuhrender Technologien entwickelt, Schwerpunkte liegen auf den Bereichen Energie und Treibstoffe, Stahlproduktion, Tiefbergbau, Telekommunikation und Informationstechnologie.WettbewerbsfahigkeitSudafrika rangiert auf dem 44. Platz von 130 Landern (vor Italien und Indien) im Global Competitiveness Index fur 2007/08 des Weltwirtschaftsforums. Das hochstplatzierte afrikanische Land ist Tunesien auf dem 32. Platz mit einem Ergebnis von 4,59. Sudafrikas Ergebnis – ein Durchschnittswert von 12 Aspekten der Wettbewerbsfahigkeit – lag bei 4,42.Seit 1994 sind eine Anzahl von Maßnahmen zur Unterstutzung der Industrie eingefuhrt worden, um die Wettbewerbsfahigkeit von Sudafrikas industrieller Basis zu verbessern. Dazu gehort auch, eine starkere Gewichtung auf die angebotsseitigen Maßnahmen zu legen, anstatt auf die nachfrageseitigen Maßnahmen (wie Zolle und Exportforderungsprogramme).Die Regierung hat Anreize fur Fertigungsprojekte mit Wertzuwachs, Unterstutzung fur industrielle Weiterentwicklung, verbesserten Zugang zu Geldmitteln, und ein forderliches Umfeld fur die Entwicklung von kleineren mittelstandischen Unternehmen geschaffen.Industrielle Erschließungsbereiche wurden in der Nahe von großen Hafen und Flughafen etabliert, die eine erstklassige Infrastruktur, engagierten Kundenservice und ermaßigte Steuern bieten.Sudafrika hat ein gut entwickeltes und ausgewogenes Wettbewerbsrecht, basierend auf den besten internationalen Gepflogenheiten. 1998 hat der Competition Act die Wettbewerbsgesetze des Landes grundlegend reformiert und dabei die Macht der Wettbewerbskontrolleure gestarkt, analog zu den Richtlinien der Europaischen Union, sowie den amerikanischen und kanadischen Modellen.Das Gesetz setzt verschiedene Verbote fur wettbewerbsfeindliches Verhalten, restriktive Praktiken (wie Preisabsprachen, Wucherpreise und Ausschreibungsabsprachen) und gegen “Missbrauch” durch “dominierende” Firmen (Firmen mit einem Marktanteil von 35% oder mehr) fest.Die Kartellbehorden uberwachen die Umsetzung und Einhaltung der Gesetze, wahrend die staatlichen Regulierungsbehorden naturliche Monopole uberwachen und den allgemeinen Zugang zur staatlichen Versorgungsinfrastruktur gewahrleisten.Letzte Aktualisierung: August 2008SAinfo reporter.

I am seventeen and use these just about every time i do my hair and they do a excellent position of keeping it back. Came specifically a 7 days soon after id requested mine. I purchased them on a thursday and they came the following thursday. Purpose for 4 star is for the reason that you get what your compensated for definitely, there is very little amazing about them but for the selling price, i wouldn’t doubt them.Bought these to go with a crimper i bought for my grandaughters birthday. They are robust and long lasting. Are not able to consider how low-cost they ended up. Generally you only get what you spend for, so i was expecting something cheap and tacky, but it is rather the reverse.The clips that i received were being not purple but have been. The clips that i obtained were being not purple but have been black, nevertheless they do the task. Tiny little bit dissapointed as was searching forward to the purpleupdate – the company have now despatched me the purple clips and they are good.Reviews from purchasers :Adore them!

Wonderful merchandise in particular contemplating the low rate.I wouldnt dress in them out, but they are terrific for sectioning hair. Not confident id use them for a baby as they are a little bit sharp, but im content with them.There is no motive not to purchase this solution other than purple not currently being your color. It’s soooo cheap and it performs and does not split quickly.The butterfly hair clips are a good colour they are fantastic high quality not easily snapped the grip a fantastic amount of money of hair in them securely they are a good selling price and effectively worth it.I cannot praise these clips high adequate. I brought these to clip my hair up although i am straightening it.This is a wonderful solution,i am not a hairdresser but have sat at sufficient salons to see these becoming utilised. They are simple to use & clip your hair back whilst you dry the rest of it.Been accomplishing my personal hair, my nana’s and my mum’s for some time, but by no means experienced the appropriate clips to aid me section. These are incredibly very well priced for what they are, they usually are not low-cost and don’t break as well easily, like other clips i’ve purchased. If you usually model your hair section by section, i propose these.These are definitely solid for drying your hair in sections. Well happy with them, they will last me for ages .The clips have been excellent worth but postage charges not. The clips are great but would be reluctant to get a little something so low-cost following time as the postage costs cancelled out the superior benefit. I need to have ordered other goods to make it much better benefit.I bought these to aid my daughter when she is dying her hair. She does it herself and i know these clips make her daily life much easier.These clips are good and a discount price. I initially acquired them to clip my thick hair when hair drying but am also now employing them as an every day clip as they are so fantastic.Loved them they do preserve you hair in put there truly powerful as i have been disapointed with the ones i obtain in the outlets if i realized they where by this potent i would of bought additional.Acquired these for a mate to use on my hair as she is a hair dresser and did my perm as a favour at house so i experienced to provide the ‘kit’ as she typically works in a salon and only has minimal tools at household. She said they had been high-quality and i glimpse excellent so guess we had been the two happy.last_img read more

Veterinary Feed Directive implementation deadline coming soon

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The clock is winding down on implementing the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) final rule from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.Some livestock farms are well on their way to have the necessary changes in place at the start of 2017, but others have much yet to do.“This is a huge issue. We will see over the coming months growth promotion and nutritional efficiency labels and uses of antibiotics that are also important to human medicine will be going away. The labels will change,” said Dr. Liz Wagstrom, chief veterinarian for the National Pork Producers Council. “If those antibiotics are used in feed, it will be illegal to use them to improve growth or improve nutritional efficiency. The remaining uses — the therapeutic uses for disease prevention control and treatment — will require a veterinarian to write a prescription if those are in water or a VFD if they are delivered in feed. This will be a huge cultural change and a very interesting transition. This is going to affect most of the antibiotics used in animal agriculture.”A current “VFD drug” is a drug intended for use in or on animal feed. These include tetracycline, penicillin, neomycin, tylosin and many others. Injectable over-the-counter antibiotics are not included in this rule, but mineral preparations and salt blocks containing affected antibiotics are a part of the VFD regulation.In the future, when a new animal drug application is submitted to FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) for approval, CVM will evaluate the drug for safety and effectiveness, and as part of the review process, to determine whether the drug will be an over-the-counter (OTC) drug, a prescription (Rx) drug, or a VFD drug (limited to drugs used in or on animal feed).The changes are being mandated by the FDA due to ongoing concerns about the use of antibiotics (antimicrobials) in livestock production contributing to serious, and real, resistance issues.“We cannot deny that antibiotic resistance happens and that it makes human disease more difficult to treat. We also have resistant diseases in animals that make them more difficult to treat. It is a big public health concern that has been a driver for the FDA to make more changes,” Wagstrom said. “We can talk about how much, if any, contribution the use of antibiotics in animal agriculture contributes to human illness, but I think we are now to a point that it is not worth arguing how much. We just need to get our own house in order and use antibiotics responsibly and do our share to protect both animal health and pubic health.”The key moving forward for livestock operations is a close, and well documented, relationship between the farm and a veterinarian.“If a producer doesn’t have a strong relationship with a veterinarian, we are encouraging them to find one. You are going to need one and that veterinarian needs to be a part of your team who needs to know your animals, facilities and management before they can legally write you a VFD,” she said. “We hope you can view that as a contributor to your bottom line rather than an expense because we believe that relationship will strengthen your business as well as legally allow you to use antibiotics.”Frank Burkett III farms in Stark County with three uncles on a 690-cow dairy with another 700 replacements on feed. He sees the value in a close relationship with the veterinarian.“We have a great relationship with our veterinarian. When we look at the effect it will have on us, in addition to having a veterinarian-client-patient-relationship (VCPR), we’ll have to take an extra step in the future. Specifically for our farm, one example I can think of right away is that we use tetracycline to treat calves with respiratory issues,” he said. “So rather than just going to our feed supplier and getting it, we will need to take another step with our vet to write something along the lines of a prescription for that product for us to supply to our feed company so they can provide that product to us.”Without a well-established VCPR, the potential use for many of the important antibiotics in the operation could no longer be legal on the farm after Jan. 1, 2017. The final rule issued by FDA specifies the key elements that define a VCPR. These include that the veterinarian engage with the livestock producer to assume responsibility for making clinical judgments about animal health, have sufficient knowledge of the animal by virtue of patient examination and/or visits to the facility where the animal is managed, and provide for any necessary follow-up evaluation or care. The final rule will require veterinarians to follow state-defined VCPR requirements and all veterinarians will need to adhere to a VCPR that includes the key elements in the final rule.“The main concern is for people who don’t have that relationship with their veterinarian. There are areas of the state that are underserved by large animal vets — we are well aware of that. The livestock producers in those areas have been treating and making decisions on their own for their livestock and raising healthy animals for years. They can consult a vet when they need, but they have been making decisions on their own and using antimicrobials in a responsible way. Now this will put them in a position where they will have to establish that relationship and agreement in order to continue to use antimicrobials on the list,” Burkett said. “For our farm, it will just be some more paperwork involved with the process. The intention is more oversight so we can be sure antimicrobials are being used responsibly to prevent resistance in animals and humans. It looks like it will just be some additional paperwork and communication with our vet and our feed suppliers that we get those products from.”In addition, the label changes will mean some differences on the farm.“These antimicrobials in feed and water will have to be used based on the label. Right now they can legally be used under an extra label use but that will not be able to be done legally once this change takes place. The important thing is communication so producers are not surprised about this change as this moves forward,” he said. “We were at risk of losing the use of this class of antimicrobials altogether. This is a compromise to allow us to use them but add securities so we don’t build resistance. We want to make sure that this is not expanded in a way that becomes more burdensome.”In December 2013, the FDA published a guidance document on this issue, which called upon animal drug manufacturers of approved medically important antimicrobials that are put into water or feed of food-producing animals to voluntarily stop labeling them as drugs that can be used to promote animal growth and change the labeling of their products for the remaining uses to require veterinary oversight of these drugs when they are used for therapeutic purposes. All of the affected makers of these drugs committed in writing to participate in the strategy. Then in June of 2015, the FDA announced the VFD final rule to bring the use of these drugs under veterinary supervision so that they are used only when necessary for assuring animal health.“The actions the FDA has taken to date represent important steps toward a fundamental change in how antimicrobials can be legally used in food-producing animals,” said Michael R. Taylor, FDA deputy commissioner for foods. “The VFD final rule takes another important step by facilitating veterinary oversight in a way that allows for the flexibility needed to accommodate the diversity of circumstances that veterinarians encounter, while ensuring such oversight is conducted in accordance with nationally consistent principles.”last_img read more

I Run 13 Browsers At Once; 11 of Them Just Went Open Source

first_imgmarshall kirkpatrick FluidApp is what’s called a Single Site Browser and is a great way to pull key websites you use throughout the day out of your primary browser and onto your Mac dashboard as standalone applications. It’s super easy for anyone to use. The service has a thriving community of users – I have 10 Fluid browsers running on my computer right now and wouldn’t want to work without them. In fact, I’m writing this blog post from Movable Type inside a Fluid Browser.In a quiet mid-December move, FluidApp developer Todd Ditchendorf put “most of the code behind Fluid” up on Github under an open source license. That’s very good news – new developments are already coming fast and furious. If you haven’t checked out Fluid before, now is a great time.There’s something magical about the way single site browsers let you use different web apps. They don’t get lost in tabs. They don’t fall prey to browser crashes. You can put a handsome icon in your doc to jump over to them.Windows users looking for a similar experience should check out Bubbles or Mozilla’s Prism. Now that Fluid for the Mac is open source though, it will be very exciting to see what features are added next. Creator Ditchendorf says he has some more exciting plans under his hat but nothing to show off yet. Watch this space.What’s your favorite Fluid App?
