SINGAPORE: Malaysia announced on May 23 that it will limit the export of chickens from June 1 to ensure there is sufficient supply in the domestic market.

“The government’s priority is our own people,” Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said in a statement, adding that authorities would also investigate allegations of cartel pricing.

Here’s what you need to know about Malaysia’s export restrictions and the potential impact of this decision:

Q: Why is Malaysia imposing a ban?

Malaysian customers have complained of rising chicken prices amid supply shortages, with some retailers resorting to rationing their sales.

According to major players in the chicken industry, factors that have affected supply include rising chicken production costs, infectious diseases and weather conditions.

These issues were raised during a meeting with the Malaysian Minister of Agriculture and Food Industries on May 23.

A farmer in Johor told CNA that one of the issues affecting supply is the rising cost of chicken feed, which has reportedly increased twice in the last month.

Q: What else is Malaysia doing to address the issue?

Besides halting the export of up to 3.6 million chickens per month from June, Malaysia said it would create a chicken buffer stock and optimize existing cold storage facilities under the ministry. Agriculture and Food Industries and Agencies.

The authorities will also simplify the subsidy application process for chicken farmers and recognize foreign slaughterhouses to increase production of the country’s chicken supply.

The approved permit for importing whole and cut chicken has been abolished, a move aimed at increasing food supply.

The prime minister said the government was aware of allegations that cartels control price and supply, adding that authorities would investigate the allegations.

Q: How long will the export ban last?

No date has been set for the resumption of exports, with Malaysia saying only that the ban will last until domestic prices and production stabilize.

The supply situation has actually been going on since the beginning of the year, said Mr. Ameer Ali Mydin, managing director of hypermarket and retail outlet chain Mydin in Malaysia.

He told CNA that the chain’s weekly orders – usually around 100 tons for all outlets – have fallen to 40 tons.

Smaller retailers also reported receiving fewer supplies.

ALBANY — The State Dormitory Authority is seeking proposals from investors, as well as design-build companies, who want to participate in a program to help people with previous marijuana convictions create points of legitimate sales under the new state cannabis laws.

Specifically, the Dormitory Authority has issued two Requests for Proposals, or RFPs, for the Cannabis Social Equity Investment Program.

This public-private program is a key part of an initiative to help those ‘involved in justice’ earn a living under New York’s new cannabis law, which legalizes the sale of the substance to adults. for recreational purposes.

The Dormitory Authority plans a fund of $200 million, with $150 million available from private investors and $50 million from license fees and cannabis sales taxes.

The idea is to correct the shot that poor residents, as well as people of color, have been arrested and imprisoned for selling or distributing marijuana in far greater numbers than middle-to-upper-class residents. and whites.

To help address this past imbalance, individuals or people with family members who had been arrested for selling or distributing pot can now obtain some of the first retail licenses.


Other groups included in the equity plan include women or minority-owned business operators, disabled veterans, and distressed farmers.

Overall, the state hopes that half of cannabis sales licenses will go to social entrepreneurs.

Similar efforts have been attempted in other states, but they haven’t gone well, with one reason being fledgling cannabis retailers don’t have enough capital and the right location for a successful store.

That’s why the Dormitory Authority is looking for private equity partners to help fund new licensees.

And they want to hire design-build firms to locate and set up what would be the physical dispensaries that applicants would support and operate. This would involve finding and acquiring a good retail location and physically preparing it for doing business.

Retailers under the equity plan will need to meet two criteria to qualify:

First, they must have a cannabis-related conviction that occurred before the legalization of marijuana on March 31, 2021, or have a parent, guardian, child, spouse, or dependent with a cannabis-related conviction before legalization.

Additionally, they must have experience owning and operating a successful business in New York.

The tenders published this week relate to two phases.

One involves selecting a fund sponsor, general partner, or fund manager to manage the cannabis social investment program.
Proposals must be submitted no later than June 8, with RFP award announced no earlier than June 20.

The other RFP is for the selection of design-build firms to support retail store development.

The Dormitory Authority expects up to 150 dispensaries to be completed across the state.

Proposals must be submitted by June 13, with tender awards announced no earlier than July 11.

The program will identify and lease locations across the state to be conditional adult-use cannabis retail dispensaries, operated by social equity entrepreneurs. The fund will also advance money for the construction, equipment and rental costs of these sites for reimbursement by social equity entrepreneurs.

I never thought I would see the day when the governor of my state spoke out against baby feeding.

I am not naive about the depths to which Texas politics can plunge.

I saw demagoguery and I saw buffoonery. I’ve seen special sessions that I thought would never end.

I heard US Representative Louie Gohmert warn against Muslim extremists sending pregnant women to the United States to give birth to “terror babies”.

I saw US Senator Ted Cruz reading “Green Eggs and Ham” in a nearly empty Senate chamber.

I’ve seen Lands Commissioner George P. Bush beg former President Donald Trump’s approval after Trump called Bush’s father ‘total stiff’, ‘not a man’ and ‘sad and pathetic’ “.

I have seen Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick relentlessly persecute transgender children by keeping them away from school sports and public restrooms.

I saw Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller grant total amnesty to cupcakes.

So maybe I shouldn’t have been stunned by Governor Greg Abbott’s Thursday statement, released in conjunction with Trump sidekick Brandon Judd, chairman of the National Border Patrol Council.

Citing the current shortage of infant formula at retail outlets in that country, Abbott criticized President Joe Biden’s administration for providing food to migrant infants detained in US facilities.

“As mothers and fathers stare at empty grocery store shelves in panic, the Biden administration is happy to provide formula milk to illegal immigrants crossing our southern border,” Abbott said.

It should be noted that federal law states that these babies must be fed.

The Flores Settlement, a 1997 court agreement, stipulates that minors held in immigration detention must be provided “drinking water and food as needed.”

For all of Trump’s border posts, his administration has also enforced this policy. They did this even when the United States experienced a formula shortage in the spring of 2020, caused by supply chain issues and panic buying in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We all remember the race for toilet paper during this time. We tend to forget the lack of formula milk.

In April 2020, USA Today referenced the “lack of toilet paper, disinfectant cleaners, baby formula, and meat” in US stores.

The current infant formula shortage was triggered three months ago when Abbott Nutrition voluntarily recalled batches of its formulas manufactured in Sturgis, Michigan.

Let’s leave aside the legal requirement that migrant babies must be fed while in detention in the United States. Let us focus for a moment on the human dimensions of this question.

What exactly is Governor Abbott advocating here? Does he want US officials to starve the migrant babies in their care?

This is the only conclusion that can be drawn from the indignation he expresses at these fed infants.

This is the same Abbott who often speaks of his belief in the “sacredness of human life” and the need to protect the “most vulnerable among us”.

In 2016, at Abbott’s request, the state implemented new rules requiring the cremation or burial of fetal tissue.

The governor’s spokeswoman, Ciara Matthews, said the new rule “affirms the value and dignity of all life.”

All the life. Not the life that comes with a green card or proof of citizenship. All the life.

A year ago this month, at a signing ceremony for a state law allowing private citizens to sue anyone who helps a woman have an abortion after heart activity is detected in the fetus, Abbott said, “Our Creator gave us the right to life. ”

He added, “In Texas, we are working to save those lives.”

Apparently, Abbott concluded that our creator didn’t care that much about the right to life when it comes to migrant babies.

San Antonio Congressman Joaquin Castro, who became a father for the third time less than two weeks ago, could not hide his disgust at Abbott’s flattery.

“As the father of a newborn, I am struck by the callous inhumanity of Greg Abbott,” Castro tweeted Thursday.

Castro noted that migrant infants are fed “because these babies are in government custody and unable to buy formula at HEB or Walmart.”

Maybe we finally need a Geneva Convention for culture wars.

Perhaps we have to agree that manipulative political rhetoric can only sink so low. That he must stop before he directs people’s base instincts into a dark tunnel from which they cannot find the exit.

This is where Abbott is heading.

That’s a very solid number – and the sale (meaning the number of units actually sold to consumers at retail, as opposed to the number of units shipped to retail outlets) of the console over the last financial year is the second after the year of launch of the console. Digital sales were also up 4.5% from fiscal 2021, with the January-March 22 period recording the second-highest quarter of digital sales ever, just ahead of the previous lucrative Holiday 21 season. It’s certainly not all pessimistic in Kyoto right now.

Although there is still life in the system, there are clear signs that Switch has reached its peak. Nintendo expects hardware sales of 21 million units in the coming year, and while that’s still 3 million more than Sony is aiming for the PS5, supply constraints are worse for the console. the most powerful – and Sony’s forecast for fiscal year 2022 is significantly up from PS5’s 11.5 million. it was sold in the last fiscal year. And let’s remember that PS5s are still like goose teeth at retail 18 months after launch.

Although Nintendo has apparently struggled to produce hardware in sufficient quantities, the fact is that demand for the hybrid console, while still healthy given its age, is slow-down. There are over 107 million Switches in the wild, and while that number continues to grow, the gaming industry is on a roll, and Switch is a pretty well-known quantity at this point.

There’s one thing Nintendo really needs to get those investor charts pointing up again: an influx of new, properly upgraded Switch hardware.

Global chip shortages and rising manufacturing costs are undoubtedly hurting Nintendo’s profits, and the reduced profit margin on Switch OLED is also seen as a contributing factor to the modest 0.6% increase in profit. company gross year-on-year. Regardless of the overall roserie, however, the negative numbers don’t make investors happy reading and Switch OLED, while a welcome shot in the arm, was a stopgap.

There’s one thing Nintendo really needs to get those investor charts pointing up again: an influx of new, properly upgraded Switch hardware.

The long-talked-about Switch ‘Pro’ or Switch 2 (or whatever you want to call the successor to the current model) has been on analysts’ lips for years at this point. Given the cyclical and continuous nature of the video game hardware cycle and the power gap between Switch and consoles from Microsoft and Sony – not to mention the fact that Nintendo pioneered the console upgrade in mid cycle and half-step with its wearable systems – debate about potential new SKUs have been common since the Switch launched in 2017.

There was no need to release an updated version all the time. Switches were flying off the shelves as fast as Nintendo could make them, despite what die-hard enthusiasts and analysts might say. In fact, of the Big Three, the huge success of Switch and its evergreen catalog of software has allowed Nintendo to weather the COVID storm and parts shortages better than it ever could have. While we’re not out of the woods yet, it increasingly looks like anyone who wants a Switch has an eye on what’s next in the pipeline than ever before.

In an ideal world, Nintendo would surely be looking to launch a Switch successor within the next year. The current pattern would continue to sell, but as the numbers go down, the new trend is here to pick up the slack and generate profits. However, Nintendo is dealing with production issues it can’t control – ones that may well delay plans for the next console, and ones that could ultimately affect the company’s momentum. Switch might be a huge cash cow, but milking it completely without a ready-made replacement isn’t good business strategy.

Motions are undoubtedly in place for the successor, but given all the potential hurdles in production, knowing when to pull the trigger on the follow-up is now Nintendo’s biggest problem. Launching a new console (backwards compatible, of course) alongside Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 would make perfect sense, with the “Spring 2023” launch date coming six years after the original. According to a poll we did on the subject, many Nintendo Life readers would jump on upgraded hardware alongside the new Zelda – that’s the kind of move you expect from Nintendo.

The motions are undoubtedly in place for the successor, but knowing when to pull the trigger on follow-up is Nintendo’s biggest problem now

Rumors suggest that Microsoft paid to “jump the queue” and get chip priority in order to make more Xboxes, and while Nintendo doesn’t want a bob or two, it can’t compete with Microsoft in terms of purchasing power. With companies having to line up for components, it won’t be just Nintendo that will have to make the most of the status quo for longer than it would under normal circumstances. His 10/1 stock split plans are another indicator that he is looking to pull back and make the most of things while business is still strong.

Indeed, we’ve even seen analysts lately come up with much more sober estimates of when a Switch successor might appear, with dates like “late 2024” now suggested. By then, the current console would be seven and a half years old – a retiree in modern gaming terms. There’s no doubt that the system is capable of delivering great games as is, and that won’t change, but for an industry and die-hard fan base that still has its eye on The Next Big Thing™, the end of 2024 seems like an endless wait for new Nintendo hardware.

In terms of profits, of course, Nintendo could afford to continue for two years on its current offering, perhaps with a Switch Lite OLED added in for good measure. However, the perception that the company is standing still would be hard to shake – if not for players, then certainly for investors. A new Zelda will help, but Holiday 2024 seems a long way off.

Bloomberg reports that Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa “declined comment when asked during a press conference when his company might unveil the next iteration of its flagship console,” and we’d be inclined to believe that it’s a pressing issue within the walls of Nintendo. HQ too. It’s easy to make an announcement, but producing hardware at scale and meeting consumer demand is a challenge we certainly don’t envy to the folks handling the logistics of Nintendo’s next console launch.

Let us know in the poll below when you think Nintendo will launch its next console.

Thai retail stores line up to boycott online shopping platform Lazada https://naturabebes.com/thai-retail-stores-line-up-to-boycott-online-shopping-platform-lazada/ Sun, 08 May 2022 09:11:56 +0000 https://naturabebes.com/thai-retail-stores-line-up-to-boycott-online-shopping-platform-lazada/ A number of retail outlets selling products from Royally-sponsored projects in Thailand have stopped taking orders from customers through the Lazada online shopping platform.

A number of retail outlets selling products from Royally-sponsored projects in Thailand have stopped taking orders from customers through the Lazada online shopping platform. Although no reason was given in any of their announcements, the changes occurred following the #banLazada trend on Thai social media, in response to a promotional video, uploaded to TikTok, which was deemed inappropriate and , by some, to offend the royal family and the disabled.

A Facebook post from “Doi Tung Club” on Friday says their stores under the “Mae Fah Luang Foundation” are revising their online sales platforms, but customers can still purchase their products online through its website and several other outlets. sold online.

No reason was given for the overhaul of online shopping channels, although Lazada was not mentioned among the platforms that are still accepted by “Doi Tung” outlets.

Stores selling “Patpat” products, from the Chaipattana Foundation, also announced the suspension of accepting orders through Lazada and apologized to their customers for the inconvenience.

The Royal Chitralada Projects and the Corrections Department also announced the termination of their ties with Lazada. In a Facebook post Saturday from corrections department-operated “Wansook” stores that sell inmate-made products, the department said it pulled out of the Lazada platform for “adjustments,” but customers can still order online via Facebook or the Line app.

Meanwhile, “mr.big” pillows and “Zolbabyworld”, which sells child and maternal development products, have also stopped accepting orders through Lazada, but other platforms are acceptable.

No reason was given for the boycott of Lazada, other than a claim that they were overhauling their online sales channels, but it is believed to be linked to calls from royalist groups to boycott the international giant.

Lazada and the company involved in producing the controversial video have issued a public apology for their oversight failure, but some royalists and pro-monarchists have demanded accountability from Lazada and action against alleged offenders.

The video, posted on TikTok, shows two online influencers, Aniwat Prathumthin and Thidaporn Chaokuwiang, promoting the Lazada platform for clothing shopping. Thidaporn is seen in the clip wearing a traditional Thai costume and sitting in a wheelchair. Aniwat is seen accusing Thidaporn, who plays the mother from a noble background, of stealing her clothes.

The wheelchair and reference to Thidaporn’s noble ancestry has been considered, by some, to indirectly refer to a member of the Thai royal family who is currently in a wheelchair.

A complaint was filed yesterday (Saturday) against Aniwat, with the Technology Crime Suppression Division, by political activist Srisuwan Janya.

The Macallan is once again making it rain chocolate with the launch of Fine Cacao, the second cocoa-inspired single malt to join its highly exclusive Harmony Collection.

The limited-edition bottle made its global debut in Singapore in May and is only available at retail outlets until its global release later this month.

Unlike the dark, bittersweet notes of the first Rich Cacao, The Macallan Fine Cacao brings a smoother milk chocolate profile, which was achieved through different oak barrels and a lower ABV. “It lets you experience the story the whiskey maker is trying to tell,” said Macallan Brand Ambassador for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, Randall Tan.

Damian Allsop and Jordi Roca

The story begins once again with Macallan Whiskey Maker Polly Logan traveling to Girona, Spain to meet acclaimed pastry chef Jordi Roca and master chocolatier Damian Allsop of Casa Cacao de Roca. There they worked together to identify the distinctive flavor profiles of chocolate. Logan also recently collaborated with Jordi’s brother, Joan, on a limited-edition New York-inspired whisky.

Logan then searched for these characters in barrel-aged single malts at The Macallan’s warehouses, which she found in sherry-seasoned European oak casks. She then combined it with the vanilla note imparted by sherry-seasoned American oak casks to sweeten the Speyside whiskey slightly.

“With a natural color of roasted cocoa beans, this exquisite single malt has a unique and elegant medium chocolate profile with hints of raisins and caramel and offers a wonderful whiskey and chocolate pairing experience,” a- she declared. Similar to Rich Cacao, the bottle is packaged in a fully recyclable and biodegradable box made from discarded cocoa pods.

Bottled at 40 percent ABV – four percent less than the previous cocoa whiskey – the unaged Scotch has a creamy nose of milk chocolate, raisins and dried apricot, and the palate features raisins dipped in chocolate, candied ginger and vanilla. Overall it is fruitier and lighter than the Rich Cacao with a similar dusty chocolate finish.

To mark its first global launch in Singapore, The Macallan has partnered with Changi Airport and Lotte Duty Free on a pop-up by June 30, 2022. Located in the departure hall of Terminal 3, the The facility was built from recycled materials and provides an augmented reality experience for consumers to experience whisky.

The Macallan Harmony Collection Fine Cacao sells for S$215 and is also available at duty-free shops at Singapore Changi Lotte Airport. It will be introduced in more travel retail outlets around the world from mid-May 2022.
