Ottawa sees Ontario stance on CPP as roadblock to expanding pension plan

OTTAWA — Federal sources say Canada’s most populous province has become a roadblock in work to gain the required support from provinces to make reform and expand the Canada Pension Plan.Ontario’s position in the ongoing talks is that it wants reforms to the Canada Pension Program to dovetail with the provincial pension program Ontario has vowed to create.Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa says he plans to use the Ontario program as leverage in negotiations for timely amendments to the national program, but doesn’t want to obstruct ongoing talks.Ontario to continue to push for CPP expansion as it moves ahead on own schemeFederal, provincial and territorial finance ministers will meet near the end of June in Vancouver where CPP reform will be a key part of the agenda.Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau has said he wants to see a deal for an expanded CPP completed by the end of the calendar year.Sousa says the talks will all be for naught if a majority of provinces don’t signal their backing for immediate changes to the pension plan at the June meeting. read more

OPP firing range has nearby residents upset

Concerned Norfolk residents are fighting to shut down an OPP firing range near their homes.They say the noise, stray bullets flying everywhere, and lead contamination are not acceptable. And tonight, they asked county council to put a stop to it.Residents packed council chambers here tonight, voicing concern over the firing range. It’s at a pit owned by the county. But residents say it’s an illegal firing range that hasn’t been approved by the county and it’s dangerous.The sound of gun shots reverberate through the Bonnie Heath Lavender Farm in Norfolk County. The idyllic silence pierced by the sound of gunshots for hours a day most of the year. The Buehner family has lived beside the pit the OPP use as a firing range for 25 years. The noise is a problem, but they are more concerned about stray bullets. Buehner says they found 18 bullets on their farm since the end of September, putting her family and farm employees at risk.Anita Buehner, Bonnie Hill Lavender Farm: “All the times we’ve been told we are absolutely safe and having found this number of bullets. I no longer feel safe and I won’t put my workers or ourselves at risk.”But the OPP says it’s safe and disputes the claims of bullets landing in the lavender.Zvonko Horvat, OPP Detachment Commissioner: “I don’t believe those bullets based on our safety aspects of our training would have made their way there.”There’s no estimate on how many lead bullets have gone into the pit over the years but residents are also concerned about the amount of lead contamination.Anita Buehner: “No one has ever considered the contamination of our water system and our well is less than 400 meters away from that sand bank where all of those lead bullets are.”The OPP admits it’s time to clean up all those bullets. It says the organization will foot the bill, but it won’t be cheap.Duncan McLelland, OPP Facilities Manager: “Yes, we are cleaning it up, the $900,000 is because you have two ranges on that particular site and an average range is $350 – 500,000. This type of clean up is going to take two to three months and we are looking at the 2015 year to clean it up.”The OPP wants to continue to use the range and is asking council for a lease on the pit. But residents say no way.Regina Homeniuk, resident. “There’s a church in this community. There was a funeral and right as the minister is trying to say prayers in the cemetery, the shooting starts.”They want the shooting to stop.Residents say there are 270 legal firing ranges in Ontario and the OPP could easily use any one of those. They’re calling on council to formally reject any notion of leasing this property to the police. Police will go to council with their side of the story at the next council meeting. read more

UN urges greater use of advance passenger information to stem flow of

“Today, we have indications that more than 25,000 people have travelled abroad from more than 100 States to join terrorists groups, including the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL),” said Hassan Baage, Deputy Director of the Assessment and Technical Assistance Office of the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED). “API is an electronic communications system that collects a passenger’s biographical data and basic flight details provided by an airline carrier,” he explained at a press conference at UN Headquarters. The data is generally collected from the passenger’s passport or other government-issued travel document at the time of check-in, and includes details such as a passenger’s name and date of birth.Last September, the Security Council adopted a resolution calling on Member States to require that airlines operating in their territories provide API to the appropriate national authorities in order to detect the departure, from their territories, of individuals designated by the Al-Qaida Sanctions Committee.According to a report by CTED, only 51 Member States currently use an API system, despite their potential to interdict foreign fighters and to enhance border and aviation security generally.Further, only 12 of these 51 countries have interactive API systems that are able to conduct passenger risk assessments in near real-time, “alerting border-control agencies and airline carriers to potential FTFs [foreign terrorist fighters] before they board a flight.”A number of factors explain the low usage, such as the complexity of the systems and the high degree of technical capacity and skill they require, their costs and the privacy and data-protection-related concerns to the collection and use of API, the reports notes. With respect to the low usage of API, privacy and data-protection concerns have received the most attention as potential causes, noted Mr. Baage. “However, as API being essentially the data contained in the machine-readable zone of a passenger’s passport, the transfer of API to border-control authorities only gives border-control authorities earlier access to passenger data that would otherwise be presented by the passenger to such authorities for inspection upon arrival.”To overcome the key challenges that API is facing, the reports makes 12 recommendations, including the development – with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the World Customs Organization (WCO), and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) – of plans and projects, with a particular focus on States affected by the foreign terrorist fighter phenomenon. read more

Knicks Let Jeremy Lin Walk Because of Money

Everyone knew it, but no one in the New York Knicks hierarchy said it. Until now.General manger Glen Grunwald finally addressed the team’s decision to not match an offer sheet Jeremy Lin signed with the Houston Rockets this summer.“Basically, it comes down to the fact that Houston made a commitment to him that we weren’t prepared to make,” Grunwald said on Monday about the 3-year, $25.1 million offer the Rockets made to Lin last July. “But I’m very happy for Jeremy that things worked out for him personally and for his family and I wish him the best.“I’m more excited for our team, the team we assembled right now. We’re very excited and optimistic about this coming year.”Added coach Mike Woodson: “I’m not going to discuss Jeremy Lin. I think as a franchise we wish Jeremy nothing but the best. It’s a process that we went through and we were able to get a player by the name of Raymond Felton, and a guy by the name of Jason Kidd, a Pablo (Prigioni) in here. … As an organization and as coach I wish Jeremy nothing but the best.”Meanwhile, Lin said to the Houston Chronicle Monday on why he signed with the Rockets: “(The Rockets) talked to me about building the culture, about how Coach (Kevin) McHale wants to play, what he believes in. They were saying stuff, but I already knew what I had seen in training camp. In some ways, it didn’t really matter what they were going to say. I knew how they operated. I know how Coach McHale coaches and what he says to the team and what he expects. It made sense for me because I buy into what he says.Back in July, the Knicks decided not to match Houston’s offer to Lin, which included a $14.8 million payment in Year 3.If the Knicks matched the offer, they would have been subject to a luxury tax in the third year, potentially bringing their total out-of-pocket cost for the team’s salary to about $43 million in 2014-15. So the team decided to let him walk to Houston and instead obtained Felton in a sign-and-trade with Portland.Felton thrived in a previous stint with the Knicks, averaging 17 points and nine assists in 54 games during the 2010-11 season. He was sent to Denver in February of that year in the trade that brought in Carmelo Anthony.Now he’s back. The 28-year-old had a sub-par season in Portland last year. He admittedly came into camp out of shape and averaged just 11.5 points and 6.5 assists on 41 percent shooting.“I was out of shape when we first went there,” Felton said on Monday at the team’s annual media day. “I’m in shape now, ready to go and I’ve got a big, big chip on my shoulder. So I look forward to this season and I’m definitely happy to be back in this New York Knicks jersey.” read more

Solskjaer says he cannot take credit for Uniteds progress

first_imgAccording to the Red Devils manager, the team is responsible for resurging after the bad start of the 2018-2019 season.When Jose Mourinho was in charge of Manchester United at the start of the 2018-2019 English Premier League season things were not good.The Red Devils had many problems at the start of the season and there were a lot of rumors about fights and other kinds of discussions.But after Mourinho was let go, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took the team’s helm and has renewed the confidence of United.“I’m not here to talk about myself,” Ole said according to the team’s official website.“It’s about how you work with the players, how you work for the club, so you’ve got to manage for the club. It’s not about me at all.”“Sir Alex [Ferguson] has been to the training ground a couple of times,” Solskjaer added.“I always make sure I go and visit him after every game in his lounge at Old Trafford and it’s great to see him at the games because he’s well, he’s healthy.””It’s just great to have a little football chat with him and his friends after every game. We don’t speak every week on the phone, of course, but we keep bumping into each other at the stadium,” he explained.“Of course, my job is to make them [the players] perform better and my management with them is to get the team playing better.”“I’ve got Mike, Kieran, Michael, Demps [Mark Dempsey] and Emilio [Alvarez] with the keepers – fantastic staff,” he commented.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Of course, if we work together as a team and the players respond to that, the results are coming and the playing style is coming, that is a big plus for us as a club, but I don’t think about it away. This has never been about me at all.”“It’s the staff, us together with the players and with the crowd,” Ole said about who was in charge of the resurgence.“So, in the last 10 minutes against Burnley, that was the crowd lifting the players. That was the players then responding to that. It’s not about me as a manager if I put in this system or that system.””It’s how we work together and that for me is more of a testament to the club than it is to me and what we’ve done so far,” he continued.“I had to come in and talk to the players. Talk about their performances, how we perform, what we expect from the playing style.”“If we can get the playing style right, I’m sure we’ll get enough points to be in with a shout towards the end of the season,” he concluded.📢 Voting has opened for #MUFC’s January Goal of the Month!Does @MarcusRashford’s fine finish v Spurs get your pick? 🎯— Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 1, 2019last_img read more

Alpacapalooza led to Serendipity

first_imgWhat: Alpacapalooza, an event in which breeders, animals and vendors will participate in two days of shows, competitions and sales of alpaca products.When: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.Where: Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds, 17402 N.E. Delfel Road, Ridgefield.Cost: Admission is free. Parking is $7.Information: Visit the Alpaca Association of Western Washington online.Karen Rice and her daughter, Pam Conrad, came home with a little addiction problem after their first trip to Alpacapalooza.But once you fall in love with the show’s weird, fuzzy marquee animals — which look a bit like the offspring of a giraffe and a poodle — it’s hard to stop yourself from wanting to increase your daily alpaca dose.Since their first encounter with them at the event in 2011, the two have grown their own small herd to 11 and launched their own business, the Serendipity Alpaca Ranch. “The first time we saw them was ‘Palooza; we went and thought ‘Oh my gosh, how easy would it be to fall in love with these little creatures?’ ” Rice said. “After that we visited some farms, entered a drawing and lo and behold — we won two boys.”Not long after, the pair decided they needed a female.“We got our first maiden (in late 2011), because I said ‘You know, I really want a baby this year,’ ” Rice said. They now have eight girls and two boys, and will have four more after this year’s breeding season, she said.The goal of their ranch is to make alpaca products with wool from alpacas on their farm. Rice, who retired last year, has learned about cleaning the wool, fleecing it, spinning it, felting it and making yarn from it, among other things.“We want to be in this for the incredible fiber they have and how you can use it,” Rice said, patting one of her younger alpacas on the side of its neck. “I want to start weaving with it.”last_img read more

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Fabula AI has been acquired by Twitter. Fabula AI Twitter has acquired Fabula AI, a startup focused on machine-learning tech.The London-based startup says its Geometric Deep Learning technology has high success rates of spotting fake news, as reported earlier by CNET sister site ZDNet.Twitter said Fabula AI has “a world-class team of machine learning researchers who employ graph deep learning to detect network manipulation.””The result is the ability to analyze very large and complex datasets describing relations and interactions, and to extract signals in ways that traditional ML techniques are not capable of doing,” Twitter CTO Parag Agrawal wrote in a blog post Monday.Agrawal said Twitter will be better able to “improve the health of the conversation” and “help people feel safe on Twitter.”TechCrunch had previously reported that the Fabula AI system was able to detect fake news 93% of the time.The acquisition follows Twitter last week cracking down on more fake accounts from Iran alongside Facebook.Twitter said it pulled down more than 2,800 fake accounts tied to Iran in early May. According to a report released by US cybersecurity firm FireEye, some Twitter accounts were posing as US Republican congressional candidates to push pro-Iranian political messaging. $999 TVs Speakers Mobile Accessories Cameras Laptops Automobiles Smart Speakers & Displays DJI’s answer to GoPro’s action cameras is rugged little model that’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof down to 11 meters.

As a cloud-based solution, radiologists can review studies read by radiologists within their group or those read by outside radiologists. The new solution will be shown at BRIT Systems’ RSNA booth #4200.The cloud architecture makes it easy to distribute and read the studies. Exams are uploaded via DICOM TLS (using https security) or an upload widget. Reports can be attached to the studies or, with additional integration, sent via HL-7. A system administrator enters the percentage of exams to be reviewed by modality type and the system randomly selects these studies, eliminating any selection bias. Radiologists may view the studies directly on the Peer Review system using the WebWorks browser-based viewer or the application can be integrated onto their workstations.“With the addition of Peer Review, Roentgen Worksflow now provides one integrated workflow for all radiology functions and reading requirements—including order entry, widgets for uploading, DICOM viewing, distribution of studies, advanced worklist options, on-hold, urgent findings, ER discordance and advanced viewing tools, including 3D and mobile viewing with the iPad,” said Shelly Fisher, President, BRIT Systems. “It is BRIT Systems’ latest tool in our radiology IT arsenal.”Designated department managers can view reports of specific, detailed results where the images and reports are just a click away and they can also view statistical analysis. All reports are downloadable into Microsoft Excel for further analysis and for forwarding to auditing agencies. Peer Review for Radiologists runs as a module in Roentgen Works, which can also support urgent findings, emergency messaging, radiology reporting, iPad viewing and other services.For more information: www.brit.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | November 28, 2011 Brit Introduces Cloud-Based Peer Review for Radiologists News | Information Technology | June 25, 2019 Barco Launches Smart Solution for Remote Radiology Reading Barco’s new remote radiology reading solution ensures dependable imaging when radiologists are working outside the ho read more News | PACS | May 22, 2019 Brazil’s Santa Casa Hospital System Chooses Carestream for Unified Diagnostic Workflow Santa Casa de Misericordia has selected Carestream to replace its legacy diagnostic workflow technology across all… read more Related Content News | Remote Viewing Systems | May 01, 2019 University of Toronto Partners With IMS for Emergency Radiology Simulation International Medical Solutions (IMS) and the University of Toronto Department of Medical Imaging have signed a… read morelast_img read more

An additional study of nearly 600 patients with over three years of follow-up reported similar outcomes, leading researchers to conclude that strut-based brachytherapy is a “well-tolerated, effective treatment” for many women with early-stage breast cancer.SAVI is a strut-based applicator that delivers a form of accelerated partial breast irradiation (APBI) known as breast brachytherapy, a five-day course of targeted radiation for early-stage breast cancer. Data came from the SAVI Collaborative Research Group, which studies the long-term outcomes of women treated with strut-based brachytherapy, and was presented at the 56th annual meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), Sept. 14-17, 2014.The five-year data is the most mature follow-up of the largest cohort of patients treated with strut-based brachytherapy to date. The ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence rate (IBTR) was 3.0%, and late toxicity rates were low, including telangiectasisas (1.6%), seroma (3.2%) and fat necrosis (0.5%). Good/excellent cosmesis was seen in more than 93% of patients at all times of follow-up. “Over the years, our data have continually shown strut-based brachytherapy to be a safe and effective treatment for lower risk breast cancers. With five years of follow-up, this study confirms that it can be offered as an option to any APBI-eligible patient,” said lead author Catheryn Yashar, M.D., a radiation oncologist at UC San Diego’s Moores Cancer Center, La Jolla, Calif., and co-principal investigator of the SCRG. “In addition to excellent local control, the low toxicities and great cosmetic outcomes clearly demonstrate the benefits of a highly targeted treatment that reduces unnecessary radiation exposure to healthy tissue and critical structures.”A second study of an even larger patient population demonstrates similarly favorable outcomes with strut-based brachytherapy. Out of 596 patients with 39-months median follow up, the study authors report excellent local control (IBTR = 2.8%), good/excellent cosmesis in over 94% of patients, and low rates of toxicities (telangiactasias — 1.0%; seroma — 3.0%; fat necrosis — 0.8%).A third, single-institution study also presented at ASTRO compared the dosimetric capabilities of the SAVI applicator to balloon-based brachytherapy catheters. In a retrospective analysis of 535 patients, researchers concluded the dosimetric flexibility of the strut-based device was more effective than balloon-based devices in minimizing unnecessary radiation to the skin and ribs while maintaining effective tumor control.“The goal of breast brachytherapy is to intensify treatment to the area most at risk for recurrence, targeting just the affected part of the breast in order to achieve effective tumor control while reducing toxicity and achieving better cosmetic outcomes,” said study author and radiation oncologist Robert Hong, M.D., Virginia Hospital Center, Arlington, Va. “Our study demonstrates that while all breast brachytherapy catheters are capable of achieving this goal relative to whole breast irradiation, the unique strut-based design of the SAVI applicator makes it significantly more effective in minimizing dose to normal tissue without compromising coverage of the target tissue.”Strut-based brachytherapy is used as part of breast conservation therapy (BCT), which consists of a lumpectomy followed by radiation therapy. Whole breast irradiation (WBI) radiates the entire breast, including healthy tissue and underlying structures, while breast brachytherapy delivers targeted radiation to the area immediately surrounding the lumpectomy cavity. The clinical benefits of targeted radiation like brachytherapy include reduced radiation exposure to healthy tissue, better cosmetic results, fewer long-term side effects, and preserving more treatment options in the future in the event of a recurrence or new primary cancer.Patient eligibility for breast brachytherapy includes lower risk cancers, as well as a number of other factors, including tumor size, age, margin status and lymph node involvement. The strut-based, open architecture design of SAVI allows physicians to sculpt radiation based on patient-specific anatomy, which may increase the number of women eligible for breast brachytherapy.For more information: www.ciannamedical.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Proton Therapy | August 08, 2019 MD Anderson to Expand Proton Therapy Center The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center unveiled plans to expand its Proton Therapy Center during a… read more News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 Mevion and C-RAD Release Integration for Improved Proton Therapy Treatment Quality Mevion Medical Systems and C-RAD announced the integration between the C-RAD Catalyst PT and the Mevion S250i proton… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

It is the largest randomized single-institution study with the longest follow-up period on this topic to date.The study enrolled 300 men and followed them over a median period of 11 years after treatment. Half had received H-IMRT and half had received C-IMRT. Men in both groups also received standard-of-care androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) when it was indicated. H-IMRT delivers more radiation per treatment session, allowing patients to complete treatment over a much shorter period than C-IMRT (5 ½ weeks versus 8 weeks). Advantages include fewer medical appointments, lower costs and more efficient utilization of clinical resources.Vladimir Avkshtol, M.D., a radiation oncology resident at Fox Chase, presented the results at an oral session at the 60th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), Oct. 21-24 in San Antonio, Texas.At five years and 10 years after treatment, men who had received either form of therapy showed similar results on several measures, including prostate-specific antigen (PSA) control and overall survival. There was initially some cause for concern over a trend toward higher rate of developing metastases in men in the H-IMRT group; however, this was not statistically significant and no subset of patients seemed to be at higher risk on further analysis.“Our analysis shows that for most men with localized prostate cancer, H-IMRT is a viable option and should be considered for most men. Our study is one of the biggest and most mature studies of its kind in the U.S.,” said Avkshtol.Read more about late-breaking clinical trials presented at ASTRO 2018.For more information: www.astro.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).

VIDEO Cricket Exhibition to showcase thriving youth program

first_img Facebook Comments Cricket has a long and storied history in the region: The game arrived in Costa Rica with Jamaican railroad workers in the late 19th century, and their teams were enormously popular for decades. During World War II, amateur players found difficulty finding gear, because most padding and bats were manufactured in war-torn Britain. The game might have become extinct altogether, were it not for the Cricket Association and a handful of diehard fans.From the looks of it, a whole new generation is picking up the bat.The Cricket Exhibition takes place Aug. 23 in the National Gymnasium, La Sabana Park. 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Free. Info: Cricket Association website. In the middle of the small town of Siquirres, about 25 young Ticos run around a grassy field. You might expect them to be playing soccer, the nation’s most popular sport. But they’re not playing soccer – they’re playing cricket, the English game played with wickets, a ball, and a bat.“Many people don’t realize that cricket is the second most-watched sport in the world,” says Richard Illingworth, president of the Costa Rica Cricket Association. “I would say its popularity has doubled in Costa Rica every year for the past five years.”This Saturday, the organization will host its Cricket Exhibition in San José, showcasing both veteran players and teenage Costa Ricans from across the country. While the event will only last one day, organizers anticipate upwards of 1,000 spectators.Perhaps the most exciting aspect of the exhibition is the debut of young cricket players enrolled in new after-school programs. Thanks to support from the International Cricket Council and an army of volunteers, Costa Rican teenagers are now signing up for practices, formal games, and even a cricket camp hosted by EARTH University. The program has been particularly popular in the province of Limón, cultivating both male and female players. Illingworth estimates that about 700 young Costa Ricans have played the game at some point, and scores of them play regularly.The Tico Times visited the town of Siquirres in Limón Province to talk with coach Freddy Morales and some of his young protégés.center_img Related posts:Cricketers demonstrate skills at exhibition in La Sabana What gamblers really won betting on Costa Rica After 80 days, investigation continues into US man missing in Costa Rica Claiming my Afro-Latinidadlast_img read more

Out of the leading varieties the estimates for th

first_imgOut of the leading varieties, the estimates for this season are 9.3 million standard boxes for Green Anjou (about 49.6% of total Northwest fresh pear crop), 4.6 million standard boxes of Bartlett (24%), and 3.2 million Bosc (16.7%). Red Anjou will represent 5.6% of the crop with a potential 1.1 million standard boxes.The Green Anjou crop is showing a projected increase of 10% compared to the smaller crop in 2017, but down 5% from a five-year average.Growers estimate that the Bartlett pear crop will be up 24% compared to last season, marking a 5% increase over a five-year average. The Bosc crop is estimated to be 42% higher than last season’s small crop and 8% above the five-year average, while Red Anjou production is expected to be 7% higher than last year and 5% above the five-year average.The organic pear estimate is expected to come in at 1.64 million standard boxes (36,000MT), which is 8.7% of the total Northwest crop.Newly transitioned orchards and a strong pear crop overall have contributed to the growth in organic pears, PBNW said. Out of the entire organic crop, growers project 583,500 standard boxes of Green Anjou, with the Bartlett and Bosc crops sizes projected at 564,700 and 321,050 standard boxes, respectively.”A ripe pear is exceptional and the industry is committed to providing consumers with a fantastic eating experience,” said Moffitt.”We will be grabbing the attention of consumers through a strong social media program and messaging through media and influencers while working to keep pears in front of today’s consumer. We will be connecting with them through online shopping sites, promoting meal kits with pears, targeted advertising and more.”Photo: www.shutterstock.comwww.freshfruitportal.com The U.S. 2018 Washington and Oregon pear crop has been forecast 18% up year-on-year at 18.9 million box equivalents, or 415,000 metric tons (MT). The Pear Bureau Northwest (PBNW) says the increase follows an “unusually small crop” last year, and will be equal to the five-year average.”The growers and shippers of USA Pears are pleased to see a solid crop of excellent quality pears on the trees,” PBNW president and CEO Kevin Moffitt said.”The pear category offers retailers an unmatched opportunity for growth in the produce department. We are providing retailers with category and consumer insights and offering effective promotions to help them capitalize on the opportunities.”Pick dates for the coming harvest are projected to be roughly a week earlier than last season, staying close to the historical average.Starkrimson are expected to be picked in early August, with the Bartlett harvest expected in mid-August.Anjou is expected to happen in late August in all districts while Bosc and Comice varieties will be harvested beginning in September and span through early October.Finally, Concorde, Forelle and Seckel will be picked in September and October across the four growing districts.
