Indian buffalo meat not competitive to US beef exports: report 28.6.2016 DNA: Urban Tales
India, one of the largest exporters of beef, is unlikely to pose a challenge to the export of American beef due to the poor quality of its buffalo meat and lack of animal health regulations, an official report has said. "So far, it appears that Indian water buffalo meat exports, although relatively low cost, are mostly non-competitive with US beef exports, primarily due to quality preferences and animal health regulations in the major markets that import US beef," the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) said in a report on Indian beef exports. The report 'From Where the Buffalo Roam: India's Beef Exports', said that Indian exports of buffalo meat do not comply with health standards, including foot and mouth disease-free status, required by most high-income markets served by the US. Even in markets shared by the two countries, the products are likely to serve different customer segments, it said, adding that about 90% of US beef exports go to markets closed to Indian beef. "However, India's water buffalo ...

Tens of thousands need aid after deadly cyclone pounds Bangladesh, Sri Lanka 24.5.2016 DNA: Money
Tens of thousands of people in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka need aid including clean drinking water, dry food rations and medicines after a deadly cyclone hammered the South Asia region, aid agencies said on Tuesday. With wind speeds reaching 90 kph (56 mph) and heavy rains, cyclone Roanu struck Bangladesh on Saturday, after buffeting India and Sri Lanka in the Bay of Bengal - killing at least 120 people and affecting hundreds of thousands more in the region. Aid workers said Roanu's torrential rains triggered flooding, landslides and tidal surges mostly in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh - ripping apart thousands of rickety homes, burying entire villages and inundating swathes of farmland. "Tens of thousands of poor families will have lost most of their assets - not just their houses, but also their food stores, seasonal crops and vital livestock such as cows, goats and ducks," said Shakeb Nabi, Christian Aid's Bangladesh head. "Access to food, safe drinking water, health supplies and sanitation materials is ...

UK water experts develop device to help save lives in India 17.5.2016 DNA: Money
A team from the University's Department of Civil Engineering has developed prototype optical equipment called "Duo Fluor" which uses water s natural fluorescence to "scan" the water and highlight pollutants that are present in the sample almost instantly revealing whether supplies are safe to drink. Professor John Bridgeman, who led the team of researchers, said: "It is vital to ensure that people have access to safe water supplies. The 'Duo Fluor' device is a huge step forward in managing water and wastewater systems and has the potential to save lives not just in India, but around the globe. John Bridgeman Professor of Environmental Engineering at University of Birmingham Microbiological waterborne disease remains a significant concern for the global water community. Pathogens in drinking water sources cause ill health and the 'Duo Fluor' allows rapid drinking water quality checks to prevent the spread of disease and death." The researchers are now working with experts from the charity Oxfam and ...
