France beat Norway with Pardin&Mahe in main role! ShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsThe last weekend at the Women’s EHF CL Main Round will decide which two teams will travel to Budapest at the first ever F4 tournament. The World’s Best Player 2013 by IHF, Andrea Lekic was fantastic with 10 goals, but that wasn’t enough for her ZRK Vardar to secure the F4 place in German Thuringer – 24:24. Both teams will probably have to win the points also in the last round to be among the TOP 4 teams in Europe this season…If Savehof beat FCM on Sunday, German team will celebrate and the only question for the next weekend will be – FCM or Vardar.Vardar will host Savehof in the last round… Click to comment 3.

CARDI seeking to revitalize coconut industry with EU funding

first_img Tweet Share 221 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! A two-day workshop, geared at revitalizing the production of coconut in Dominica, is under way at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Open Campus Dominica site’s Conference Room.The Group/Cluster Development and Strengthening Workshop commenced on Wednesday 16 November 2016 and is being implemented by the Caribbean Agriculture Research and Development Institute (CARDI) in nine CARIFORUM countries. It has received funding from the European Union with support from the International Trade Center.Coconut farmers, processors and extension officers are participating in the workshop which is being facilitated by Facilitators Beverly Chase and Tristan Alvarez.According to Chase, who is one of the consultants on the project, this focus on coconuts is because of a decline in coconut supply although there has been an increase in the demand for coconut and coconut products over the years.“Say from 2008 to 2014, there has been, what you would say maybe about an 800% increase for these products and the Caribbean has seen a decline in the industry, over the past may be twenty, thirty, forty years and therefore there’s a need to revitalize the industry in the Caribbean,” Chase stated.This project therefore is looking at four basic outcomes; strengthening the regional synergies in the industry and developing the production capacity “because in order for us to go forward we must revitalize the production of coconut”.The project also aims to bring local stakeholders together in each regional territory in order to develop a plan for the industry and manage the associated risks.“We want the stakeholders, persons who are present here the farmers, the processors, the oil processors, the water processors and hopefully maybe some financial supporting agencies, we want them to come together and work together in order to develop an action plan to go forward,” Chase added.Thus, as part of the workshop, the facilitators are presenting some tools in the area of value added products, identifying value added products, cost of production, an action plan for the coconut industry, and providing guidance in accessing funding in order to implement these activities.The consultants are of the view that there is great potential for the coconut industry in the Caribbean but that farmers and processors need to view it as a business.“There’s a lot of demand, there’s a lot of potential and from a business point of view we want to capitalize on that. Part of what I’ll be doing, will be to sensitize you all and get you all to see yourselves as business men and business women, we’re in it to make a profit,” facilitator, Tristan Alvarez.He said while the whole aspect of food security, rural development and livelihood enhancement is important, which comes from the profit development aspect of running a business, these cannot be done if the business is operating at a loss.“So I look forward to working with you. Some of the things that I hope we can do in a practical sense would be developing a course of production model. I’m not sure how many of you would have cost your own production, but we can cost one for the industry and we will look at doing that,” Alvarez said.He added that “as an individual you could only go so far but together you can go even further and that’s the point we want to get across you as well”.center_img Share BusinessLocalNews CARDI seeking to revitalize coconut industry with EU funding by: Dominica Vibes News – November 17, 2016 Sharelast_img read more

Kristoffer Ajer wants Celtic starting spot after impressive display

first_imgKristoffer Ajer wants to nail down a place in Celtic’s starting lineup this season after impressing in Saturday’s friendly win over Wolfsburg.The teenager arrived at the club this summer after signing a four-year deal with the Hoops in February and has featured in pre-season ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.Ajer came off the bench to replace Erik Sviatchenko after the Danish defender sustained a head knock, impressing as Celtic claimed a 2-1 win over the Bundesliga outfit.Sviatchenko is expected to return for the second leg of the Champions League qualifier against Lincoln Red Imps on Wednesday, but Ajer hopes to become a starter at Celtic this season. “It is a big honour playing for Celtic and to get man of the match was brilliant.“It (Lincoln) was a disappointing result for us but if we play like we did we will beat Lincoln on Wednesday and this is our only focus.” He said: “I came to Celtic to play and if he gives me the opportunity I am ready.“There are a lot of midfielders and he knows that I can play there and he also wants me to develop as a centre half. I think it is really good to be able to play more positions.“The only thing I am working on is to develop and play games and if that means I have to play centre half I will play centre half.“I was extremely stressed and went out without warming up and I made some mistakes in the beginning which I am not proud of, but after a while I performed well and it was a big experience hearing the fans.last_img read more
