Black Sea bullet plan

first_imgGEORGIA: President Mikheil Saakashvili outlined his vision for fast trains to cut the 360 km Tbilisi – Batumi journey from 8 h to less than 3 h on May 31. Opening a construction base in Batumi for the upgrading of GRZ’s main line, he said modern transport and communications were essential to reduce unemployment and raise the quality of life, making Batumi ‘the best city on the Black Sea coast’.GRZ Director-General Irakli Ezugbaia said ‘intensive works’ are underway with support from France. The bulk of the project covers realigning curves, which will require ‘complex engineering’ in difficult terrain. Completion is planned for the end of 2012. Contributing to the shorter journey times will be a new eight-car inter-city EMU which entered service between Batumi and Kutaisi on June 14, cutting the journey time by 1 h 20 min to 2 h 45 min. This is one of three EMUs ordered from CSR Nanjing Puzhen in August 2007 at a cost of €6m. Assembled locally by Tbilisi Electric Railway Car Repair Plant, it was hailed as the first new post-Soviet train for Georgia. The other pair are two-car EMUs destined to operate shuttle services to Tbilisi International Airport.last_img read more

Violence cannot be the solution to the resolution of misunderstandings among people,” he said.The president said the military had restored calm in the affected areas, and emergency services had been deployed to offer assistance to those affected.He also urged the affected communities to search for other solutions to their differences other than engaging in war.“The primary initiative for ending violence once and for all must originate from the local actors involved in these clashes,” he said.Related Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari to inaugurate ministerscenter_img Nigeria prepares to usher in the new president; Muhammadu Buharilast_img read more

Fuel Up to Play 60 zone

first_imgWhile there, Minnesota dairy farmers talked with thousands of event-goers from across the country about dairy farming and encouraged guests to get involved with the Fuel Up to Play 60 program. Part of the program events each day was hosting a Skills and Drills clinic on an actual field in the Kids’ Zone. There, both a Minnesota dairy farmer and NFL player shared his or her own story with children attending the clinic. advertisementadvertisement“It was a great complimentary message talking about the nutritious foods that come from cow’s milk such as cheese, yogurt, ice cream and fluid milk,” said Lucas Lentsch, CEO of Midwest Dairy. “That messaging really resonated with the kids because they then got to hear the NFL player share his story and how he used milk and dairy foods to build a strong body.“Children are really inquisitive about learning where their food comes from. The first five questions from the audience of young people was directed at the dairy farmer, asking more clarifying questions about the farm,” Lentsch said. “Having the celebrity status of a NFL football player right alongside the celebrity status of the dairy farmer was awesome to watch and witness firsthand.”Another highlight feature at the booth was a virtual reality game where consumers and kids got a firsthand look at a dairy farm modeled after the Heintz Badger Valley Farm in Caledonia, Minnesota. The virtual reality goggles allow players to have an interactive experience to pull roofs off of barns and look inside, as well as experience a NFL locker room and throw footballs. At the booth, event-goers also had the opportunity to meet current and retired NFL players who stopped by the Fuel Up to Play 60 booth throughout the week. “It has been fun for me to look at guests’ faces when they have a real dairy farmer handing them a cheese snack and welcoming them to the Fuel Up to Play 60 booth, as well as having NFL players stop by and pose for pictures,” Lentsch said. “That is why it is important for farmers to be engaging consumers in unexpected places.”The Fuel Up to Play 60 program encourages students across the country to eat healthy and get active for 60 minutes a day. It is the nation’s largest in-school wellness program and was created in partnership by the NFL, National Dairy Council and USDA.advertisement“I couldn’t be more proud of our dairy farmers for giving their true and transparent story of who they are and what they work for,” Lentsch said. “I think that is ultimately what consumers want today is transparency in their food and transparency in the relationships of people who bring them that food.”   Audrey SchmitzEditorProgressive DairymanEmail Audrey [email protected] In a meeting of football and farming, Minnesota dairy farmers from across the state served as ambassadors at Midwest Dairy’s Fuel Up to Play 60 booth. All week long, more than 60 dairy farmers shared their stories at the 2018 Super Bowl Experience event from Jan. 27 to Feb. 3 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. last_img read more
