The Implementation Guidelines are intended for the attention of maritime, labour and fisheries ministries and any other relevant government ministry as and when it is decided to implement the three FAO/ILO/IMO instruments on the design, construction and equipment of fishing vessels of all types and sizes. Those instruments are Part B of the Code of Safety for Fishermen and Fishing Vessels, the Voluntary Guidelines for the Design, Construction and Equipment of Small Fishing Vessels, and the Safety Recommendations for Decked Fishing Vessels of Less than 12 metres in Length and Undecked Fishing Vessels. While the intention is not to provide a single prescription to improve safety, the Guidelines do seek to raise awareness and offer guidance on a broad range of issues which must be addressed in an effective and holistic manner. In this regard, the cooperation and coordination between maritime, labour and fisheries administrations is important, particularly where the responsibilities for safety of fishing vessels are divided under relevant Acts. The Implementation Guidelines cover areas such as: development of a safety strategy; legal implications; administrative requirements; capacity-building; training of crew members; enforcement of regulations; and operational safety. Although the main purpose of the Implementation Guidelines is to assist competent authorities in the implementation of voluntary instruments, it could also be useful when implementing the provisions of the Cape Town Agreement of 2012 on the Implementation of the Provisions of the 1993 Protocol relating to the Torremolinos International Convention for the Safety of Fishing Vessels, 1977.

Where Our Food Comes From - Retracing Nikolay Vavilov's Quest to End Famine (Paperback, None Ed.): Gary Paul Nabhan Where Our Food Comes From - Retracing Nikolay Vavilov's Quest to End Famine (Paperback, None Ed.)

The future of our food depends on tiny seeds in orchards and fields the world over. In 1943, one of the first to recognize this fact, the great botanist Nikolay Vavilov, lay dying of starvation in a Soviet prison. But in the years before Stalin jailed him as a scapegoat for the country's famines, Vavilov had traveled over five continents, collecting hundreds of thousands of seeds in an effort to outline the ancient centers of agricultural diversity and guard against widespread hunger. Now, another remarkable scientist--and vivid storyteller--has retraced his footsteps. In "Where Our Food Comes From," Gary Paul Nabhan weaves together Vavilov's extraordinary story with his own expeditions to Earth's richest agricultural landscapes and the cultures that tend them. Retracing Vavilov's path from Mexico and the Colombian Amazon to the glaciers of the Pamirs in Tajikistan, he draws a vibrant portrait of changes that have occurred since Vavilov's time and why they matter. In his travels, Nabhan shows how climate change, free trade policies, genetic engineering, and loss of traditional knowledge are threatening our food supply. Through discussions with local farmers, visits to local outdoor markets, and comparison of his own observations in eleven countries to those recorded in Vavilov's journals and photos, Nabhan reveals just how much diversity has
already been lost. But he also shows what resilient farmers and scientists in many regions are doing to save the remaining living riches of our world. It is a cruel irony that Vavilov, a man who spent his life working to foster nutrition, ultimately died from lack of it. In telling his story, "Where Our Food Comes From" brings to life the intricate relationships among culture, politics, the land, and the future of the world's food.

One farmworker tells of the soil that would "bite" him, but that was the chemicals burning his skin. Other labourers developed lupus, asthma, diabetes, kidney failure, or suffered myriad symptoms with no clear diagnosis. Some miscarried or had children with genetic defects while others developed cancer. In Fed Up, Dale Slongwhite collects the nearly inconceivable and chilling oral histories of African American farmworkers whose lives, and those of their families, were forever altered by one of the most horrific pesticide exposure incidents in United States' history. For decades, the farms around Lake Apopka, Florida's third largest lake, were sprayed with chemicals ranging from the now-banned DDT to toxaphene. Among the most productive farmlands in America, the fields were doused with organochlorine pesticides, also known as persistent organic pollutants; the once-clear waters of the lake turned pea green; birds, alligators, and fish died at alarming rates; and still the farmworkers planted, harvested, packed, and shipped produce all over the country, enduring scorching sun, snakes, rats, injuries, substandard housing, low wages, and the endocrine disruptors dropped by crop dusters. Eventually, state and federal dollars were allocated to buy out and close the farms to attempt land restoration, water clean-up, and wildlife rehabilitation. But the farmworkers became statistics, nameless casualty's history almost forgot. Here are their stories, told in their own words.

Is it possible for your restaurant or small business to not only survive, but to thrive and increase sales eight-fold during the worst economic crisis to hit the United States since the Great Depression?
Restaurant Lady Misty Young has a defiant YES to that question, based on her experience expanding her Squeeze In restaurant, locally famous in Reno/Tahoe for fantastic omelettes and its rapid expansion from one beloved location to several and counting.
Things didn't start out perfectly in Misty's "Rags to Restaurants" life - from a childhood of frequent moves, a period on government assistance, and a rough time balancing family life while earning her college degree. Clearly she has more than made up for it.
Misty chalks it up to her discovery of "The Five Irrefutable Laws of Restaurant Success," which she shares in this book.
Some of the most famous in the food and restaurant industry would happily agree that Misty has undoubtedly arrived, evidenced when the Food Network showed up one snowy December day, placing her talents and her omelettes on national television for a surprise episode of "Throwdown with Bobby Flay."
When the masses came calling asking Misty to share her secrets, this Western restaurant maven was prepared, knowing the detailed facts about her guests, associates, financials and operations down to the number of eggs cracked since day one. "You can't count what you don't measure, and vice-versa," Misty says. Misty's targeted Egghead Breakfast Club and her grasp of constantly changing social media helped spread the Squeeze story far and wide to prospective guests and media outlets.
Restaurant Lady Misty Young's experiences and rock solid approach can help you transform your restaurant into an outstanding stand-alone venue or allow it to become the base for a profitable and expanding regional chain.

It All Began with Daisy (Paperback): Sonia Harrison Jones It All Began with Daisy (Paperback)
Sonia Harrison Jones
R310 Discovery Miles 3 100 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This incredible success story tells in accurate, humorous detail how two sophisticated New Yorkers left the rat race and bought a farm in Nova Scotia. When their cow, Daisy, gave them too much milk for their little family, Sonia Jones started making dairy products for the local health food stores. Her recipes for yogurt, ice-cream, cheese spreads and cheesecakes took the province by storm, and soon the company began to grow like Topsy. The Jones's enterprise was so successful that they ended up becoming the proud owners of a multi-million dollar corporation. WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING: The author relates the story in an engaging fashion, even describing setbacks cheerfully. There is added charm in accounts of veteran farmers whose advice was invaluable to the couple, to whom rural life at first was utterly alien. -Jim Morrison, Publishers Weekly The most appealing idea in this book is the notion that small-scale capitalismcan help preserve both ecological balance and individual freedom. Especially when applied to farming, the vision brings out the Jeffersonian in us all; and the author is always cheerily optimistic about its prospects. "The chickens fattened themselves on maggots; the pigs took care of the wastage emanating from the kitchen or the dairy-case shelves; and the tourists liquidated the farm-related food products so the cash could then be used to keep the business growing." This is a striking passage-a sort of yuppie version of Virgil's "Georgics," with a notable element of truth. -Bob Coleman, New York Times A colorful parade of well-drawn characters and tragicomical events, from a leaky filling machine to two years of production built on a kitchen stove and Styrofoam boxes. This all but ensures the Jones's life will soon be the subject of a made-for-TV movie. Would Jane Fonda care to play the confident, unstoppable Sonia? -Jennifer Henderson, Toronto Financial Post What's especially interesting about Jones' story is that her company was asuccess in spite of itself. It was in business before it even had a name; it had no plan and no start-up money. That's nothing short of amazing when you consider that everything written or said about entrepreneurship stresses developing a solid business proposal, having a sound marketing plan, and spending a fortune to launch the enterprise. -Marilyn Linton, Lifestyle Editor, Toronto Sunday Sun

When John Cadbury came to Birmingham in 1824, he sold tea, coffee and drinking chocolate in a small shop on Bull Street. Drinking chocolate was considered a healthy alternative to alcohol, something Cadbury, a Quaker, was keen to encourage. In 1879, the Cadburys moved to Bournville and created their factory in a garden' - an unprecedented move. It is now ironic that today's Bournville is surrounded by that urban sprawl the Cadburys were so keen to get away from. This book looks at some of the social impact this company has had since its inception, both on the chocolate and cocoa business in general and on the community at large, both within and without the firm of Cadbury. In 2024, Cadbury's will be celebrating 200 years of the first store opening. This is the story of how the company began, how it grew, and how they diversified in order to survive.

The evolving landscape of analytical instrumentation has produced a plethora of extremely sensitive and selective methods for the analysis of trace components. Typically, the key character donating components of a food flavor are present in only trace levels. As instruments become more sensitive, detection limits are driven down, permitting the identification of new important flavor compounds. Armed with these new instruments, scientists seek to understand the links between what we eat and our health, and new demands are made for compliance with legal and labeling requirements. This book is based on presentations made in the symposium "Recent Advances in the Analysis of Foods and Flavors" held at the Denver ACS meeting in August 2011. The symposium was sponsored by the Agricultural and Food Chemistry Division. The 14 chapters in this book cover a variety of currently relevant topics, which include metabolomics, trace level aroma active compound identification, and the analysis of furocoumarins. The main objective of this book is to illustrate how new, highly sophisticated instrumentation can be used to address the issues of most interest to today's food and flavor chemists.

In recent years, public concern about the safety of foods of animal origin has heightened due to problems that have arisen with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), as well as with outbreaks of food-borne bacterial infections, and food contamination with toxic agents (e.g. dioxin). These problems have serious implications for national food safety, the development of the animal products industry and for international trade in livestock products. Accordingly, the FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius Commission is in the final stages of negotiation of a new Code of hygienic practice for meat. The Code implies a transition from meat inspection towards a risk-based approach covering the entire food chain. The Manual on good practices for the meat industry aims to assist the industry to prepare itself for compliance with the new regulatory framework, which is expected to come into force when the Code is approved in 2005. It is targeted at the meat industry in developing countries and in emerging economies in their endeavour to meet the rising quality and safety requirements both of the export industry and domestic markets, with the increased participation of large-scale retailers. The publication is intended to guide managers of abattoirs and the meat industry. It will also be of value to veterinarians engaged in meat inspection, with their supervisory roles in meat hygiene. The manual, well illustrated, is published in detachable modules and also serves as a training resource. The Codex Alimentarius "Draft code of hygienic practice for meat" is included as an appendix.

These "nanos" are VERY small breweries sometimes brewing only 10 gallons of beer a batch. They are also pumping out some of the most unique beer on the planet. This book takes a look at nanobreweries across the U.S.A, talking to the brewers behind the phenomena and giving you a rundown of where you can sample some nanobrewery beer. You'll even get a take from local fans of a few of the breweries listed. By the end of the book you'll understand that beer is getting more and more local by the day and these are the people leading the charge.

Large fluctuations in the price of primary-in particular agricultural-commodities began to receive the attention of economists and public affairs leaders at the beginning of the twentieth century. The world economic depression of the 1930s gave a new impetus to the concerns and to proposals for countering what became known as the problem of "excessive price fluctuations," especially of commodities in international trade. Several options were investigated, including: extended agreements for the purchase and sale of commodities; buffer stock; preferably internationally managed export quotas; or various combinations of these three. After World War II, proposals for international action to alleviate the problem became widespread. Under the guidance of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), International Commodity Agreements (ICAs) were presented as a solution to the world's economic ills and problems, especially for lower income countries. Five full-fledged ICAs-- for wheat, sugar, coffee, tin, and cacao -- were negotiated and put into effect. In addition, international consultative discussion "groups" were established for a large number of commodities, especially under the auspices of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). However, reality did not follow the promises of theory. During the 1980s every one of the five ICAs collapsed, some with devastating economic consequences. Among the ICAs, the Market Management Agreements on sugar had the longest existence, involved the largest number of countries, and were the best administered, but still did not survive. This volume, an insider's story on the negotiations and administration of the agreements on sugar, isthe first detailed analysis of the rise and fall of an ICA . Viton presents a unique history of the sugar ICA and discusses the inevitable shortsightedness of long-term international economic management while contending that creating arrangements that promote international study and discussion about commodity developments and problems may be more productive in the long run.

The food and drinks sectors occupy the first place in Greek manufacturing industry. The share of food and drinks in total manufacturing industry value added reached 24.7 per cent in 1998. The average size of employment in food and drinks establishments is 5.2 persons per unit and is similar to that for manufacturing industry in general (4.9). Exports and imports of food and drinks increased during the 1980-95 period. However, imports increased faster than exports. As a result, the positive balance of trade turned negative. Although demand for food increased between 1980 and 1998, the share of private expenditure for food in total private expenditure decreased by 8.5 percentage points (thanks to correspondingly low elasticities). The corresponding share for drinks increased by one percentage point during the 1980-90 period and has remained constant since then. The aim of this book is to quantify Greek investors' behaviour at aggregate level for all sectors and all regions over the period 1981-1999, as well as at individual sector level. Investors' behaviour is examined by employing a synthesised traditional model. The traditional model is estimated using alternative panel data methods. First, the dynamic panel data model is estimated with a common intercept by employing the Generalised Method of Moments (GMM). The dynamic panel data formulation is also estimated using the Maximum Likelihood (ML) estimation technique.

"Becoming a Food Scientist" is designed as a reservoir of ideas for those beginning a graduate education in food science or beginning a professional career in the field. Although at times it may read as a how-to manual for success in graduate school, it is meant to encourage each reader to study the research process, to challenge conventional wisdom, and to develop a career path that maximizes the probability of success both in school and beyond. The author has viewed food science graduate programs through the lenses of programs at four universities and service in numerous activities with the Institute of Food Technologists. This book is thus focused on the field of food science, but it may have relevance to other scientific disciplines.

The book introduces the concept of research as process in the first chapter. Subsequent chapters focus on individual unit operations of research: idea generation, problem definition, critical evaluation of the literature, method selection, experimental design, data collection, processing and analysis, and knowledge dissemination. Successful graduate students in food science must master each of these operations. The final section of the book pushes the reader beyond graduate school into its practice in the real world. Topics covered in the maturation of a food scientist include the scientific meeting, critical thinking, science and philosophy, ethics, finding and managing the literature, planning, grantsmanship, laboratory setup and management, and career development. This book should be a meaningful companion for any graduate student in the field and those transitioning from graduate school to the food science profession.
