Stop Foodborne Illness has one holiday wish: Learn more about food safety so you can prevent family and friends from being victims of foodborne illness.”

I will learn more about food safety so I can prevent my family and friends from being victims of foodborne illness.”

— Stop Foodborne Illness

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, December 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the season of “comfort and joy” approaches, Stop Foodborne Illness (www.stopfoodborneillness.org), a national, nonprofit, public health organization dedicated to preventing illness and death from foodborne pathogens, has one-holiday wish—that you make this important New Year’s resolution:

“I will learn more about food safety so I can prevent my family and friends from being victims of foodborne illness.”

Foodborne illness is no joke, as can be witnessed by the recent nationwide ban on Romaine lettuce issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Harmful pathogens have become an ever-increasing threat in our food supply, causing serious illness and even death among people with weaker immune systems such as young children and older adults. In 2011, the CDC estimated that each year, roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) gets sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne illness.

The facts are staggering: As of November 28, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued approximately 95 food recalls, market withdrawals and safety alerts involving foodborne illness during 2018. That is almost 2 per week, and many have affected people in multiple states.

You may be surprised to learn that the FDA’s list includes products from nearly all food categories! In fact, we’re going to list them here: tahini, breakfast cereal, cheese, asparagus, cake mix, pistachios, veggie sandwiches, twice-baked potatoes, ice cream, ham rolls, biscuits, rolls, salads, subs, ham, macadamia nuts, cage-free eggs, dry whey powder, bread, crackers, cracker sandwiches, pasta salad, poke kits, sprouting mix, vegetable trays, fresh melons, frozen broccoli, frozen whole tilapia fish, fruit mix, organic nut mix, wild Coho smoked salmon, microgreen mixes, ice pops, smoked salmon spread, romaine lettuce, eggs, organic amaranth flour, coconut, pastries, coconut flour, nutritional yeast, pumpkin seeds, deli products, alfalfa sprouts, chia seeds, cardamom pods, pork, bison, cream cheese, and frozen green beans and mixed vegetables.

If you’re a pet owner, you should also know that the FDA’s list also includes 25 pathogen-related dog and cat food recalls and alerts in 2018. Many of these items were of the “raw” variety. Foodborne illness in pets can be just as serious and life-threatening.

“We must attack foodborne illness on many fronts and in many ways,” said Lauren Bush, board co-chair of Stop Foodborne Illness. “Producers, retailers and consumers must be more vigilant than ever in identifying and preventing harmful pathogens in our food supply. We cannot stress enough how important it is for everyday people to be knowledgeable about foodborne illness—what it is, where it comes from, how to maintain a food-safe household and how to be a smart food shopper.”

“At the food industry level, food safety organizations such as Stop, trade associations, food producers and government agencies are working harder than ever to encourage safe food policies and practices at all levels, but certainly much more can be done,” said Michael Taylor, Stop Foodborne Illness board co-chair and former FDA Deputy Commissioner for Foods and Veterinary Medicine. “We must all be committed to very high food safety standards and make sure those standards are enforced through the food chain.”

A DOZEN THINGS YOU CAN DO TO BE SMART ABOUT FOODBORNE ILLNESS IN 2019

9. Know who to contact if you or your family members contract foodborne illness. If it is serious, don’t be shy—call 9-1-1. When you visit your doctor or clinic, make sure you encourage them to consider a foodborne pathogen as the cause of the symptoms.
10. Learn more about food safety resources available in your state: http://www.stopfoodborneillness.org/awareness/food-safety-by-state/

12. Learn how to pack food-safe school lunches: https://www.newsline360.com/stopfoodborneillness/pr_view/6397?&&hlan=school+lunch

Easy Solar Add-On Drives 60% Growth for Portable Sanitation Business

LunarGlo® solar powered porta-john lights credited with big boost in J&K Septic revenue; ease of installation and strong warranty

Many of our LunarGlo customers are on Preferred Vendor lists which virtually eliminates competition from other ‘non-lit’ portable suppliers.”

— Rex Barton

ELKHART, IN, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — LunarGlo’s majority owner Judy Barton isn’t getting much rest these days as she’s been busy fielding inquiries and shipping their proprietary solar powered lights and vents to customers as far away as New Zealand, the Middle East and Europe.

Explaining what’s driving this growth Ms. Barton said, “Word is getting out that LunarGlo® products give our customers a big competitive advantage in their local and regional porta-john market. For example, we heard from Kenton Brubacher at J&K Septic in New Paris, Indiana, that since they installed LunarGlo lights, their business has increased by 60 percent!”

Another LunarGlo® customer, AAA Porta Serve of High Springs, Florida added that “The lights not only provide a more comfortable environment for our customers, but lit toilets are much easier to clean due to the customers being able to see at night. Our team services units more quickly, everyone benefits from increased cleanliness and the lights are a great surprise for those “dreading” having to use a portable restroom at night.”

Rex Barton, the company’s co-founder added, “Many of our LunarGlo customers are on Preferred Vendor lists which virtually eliminates competition from other ‘non-lit’ portable suppliers.”

The LunarGlo® website explains that each lighting unit recognizes sunlight and automatically turns on the light with darkness, and then off when not needed. LunarGlo® Solar Lights are capable of providing up to 80 hours of continuous light from one full charge of a high-quality Lithium-Ion Battery that's hard wired to eliminate any potential for vibration or shock related downtime. The oversized solar array will fully charge the battery within 16 hours of direct sunlight to power the four (4) LED bulbs emitting approximately 72-foot candles of reliable LED light.

TIDDOX Launches 1000 Sheet 3-Ply Jumbo Paper Towel Roll

Tiddox image

Targets Industrial, Automotive, Painting, Mining, Food & Medical Markets

Introducing the new European manufactured 3-ply 1000 sheet Jumbo Paper Towel Roll”

— TIDDOX

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, December 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — TIDDOX a leading wipes, cloths and rags specialist, today announced the introduction of its new European manufactured 3-ply 1000 sheet Jumbo Paper Towel Roll, which has applications in the industrial, automotive, painting, printing, mining, food service, hospitality, and medical markets.

The focus of the design and development of this product was to provide professional users with a cost-effective, quality-manufactured paper towel roll incorporating the latest innovative technologies of micro-embossed synchronized lamination. The result is high tech 3-ply, glued wipers that are stronger, more absorbent, tear resistant and have extra wet strength. These features enhance the durability and effectiveness of the paper towels, making them suitable for industrial and commercial cleaning.

Each 350m roll contains 1000 sheets of 3-ply glued micro-embossed mixed cellulose blue wipers (36.5cm width) that are solvent resistant, capable of heavy-duty applications involving oils, grease, lubricants, paints, inks and absorbing other viscous liquids. The rolls are an economical, general purpose solution in workshops and factories, and can be dispensed from either floor or wall metal dispensers.

Due to their near lint-free performance, these non-scratch blue towels can also be used for delicate cleaning tasks such as cleaning glass, polishing sensitive equipment parts and wiping down surfaces.

Given the disposable nature of these single-use towels, they are increasingly popular in hygienic environments to dry hands and clean surfaces, and strong enough not to tear or break apart easily.

With 1000 perforated sheets on each roll, they are a cost-effective, cloth and rag replacement that is more easily transported and stored.

More and more businesses are switching from unhygienic, increasingly expensive cloths and rags, to these cost-effective, disposable wipers. With their good wet strength, high absorbency, tensile strength, and affordability, it is not hard to see the appeal of this product over traditional cloths and rags.

Newbean Capital Announces Agreement to Sell Indoor Ag-Con to Event Industry Veterans, Expands to New Locations & Topics

Newbean Capital today announced an agreement to sell its Indoor Ag-Con events to event industry veterans Nancy Hallberg, Kris Sieradzki and Brian Sullivan.

We see great potential for growth in indoor agriculture, and are excited to bring greater resources to Indoor Ag-Con”

— Nancy Hallberg, Indoor Ag-Con LLC

ATLANTA, GA, USA, December 10, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Atlanta, GA (December 9, 2018) – Newbean Capital, a US registered investment adviser, today announced an agreement to sell Indoor Ag-Con LLC to three event industry veterans; Nancy Hallberg, Kris Sieradzki and Brian Sullivan.

Founded by Newbean Capital in 2013, Indoor Ag-Con was one of the first events to recognize the potential in the nascent indoor agriculture industry, the practice of growing crops in containers, greenhouses and warehouses using hydroponic, aeroponic and aquaponic techniques. The tech-focused events have grown rapidly and are now hosted in Las Vegas, the US East coast and Singapore each year. In 2015, the events became crop agnostic, expanding to cover legal cannabis and alternate proteins as well as leafy greens and non-food crops.

The acquisition sets the stage for a significant expansion of Indoor Ag-Con globally, bringing exceptional talent and experience to the events. Nancy and Kris founded leading event housing group Connections Housing over thirty years’ ago; the Company manages over 250 events annually, some with over 100,000 participants. Brian brings a wealth of experience in event planning and trade show management, with more than 20 years’ experience in managing large scale shows for companies such as Reed Exhibition and Clarion Events. Nicola Kerslake, founder of Newbean Capital, will remain involved in Indoor Ag-Con as Chief Curator, creating agendas and curating speakers for each event. She remains deeply involved in the indoor agriculture industry, thanks to her rapidly growing alternate finance business, Contain Inc, which will provide white papers for Indoor Ag-Con events going forward.

“We see great potential for growth in indoor agriculture, and are excited to bring greater resources to Indoor Ag-Con” commented Nancy Hallberg. “We’ll be rolling out new initiatives, partnerships and event locations in short order” says Brian Sullivan, adding “we’ll again be returning to Las Vegas for our flagship event in spring 2019 and will announce the details of our plans before the end of the month.”

Our next event is the 4th Annual Indoor Ag-Con Asia, a two-day event that will be hosted at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore on January 15-16, 2019. It will include exhibition tables and an exciting lineup of industry-leading speakers, and will be opened by SMS Koh of the Republic of Singapore. We will be covering a broad range of crop types – such as, leafy greens, mushrooms, insects, aquaculture and medicinal crops – as well as technologies ranging from artificial intelligence to LED lighting to control systems. New features for 2019 include a startup alley in the exhibition hall, allowing entrepreneurs to easily showcase their startups, unconferencing sessions, and onsite mini workshops from Singaporean vertical farming equipment company Upgrown Farming.

The event is accompanied by a pitch competition, Indoor Ag-Ignite, whose goal is to find the most innovative new ideas globally in indoor agriculture, and the competition is open to any team or company of under 40 employees developing or deploying technologies for the indoor agriculture industry. Three winning teams will receive prize packages including Startup SG grants of S$50,000 per team thanks to the sponsorship of Enterprise Singapore, as well as substrates and technical advice from Smithers Oasis.

4th Annual Indoor Ag-Con Asia
Date – January 15-16, 2019
Place – Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
Registration – currently open to the general public from US$399
Features – Two-day seminar, with keynote speakers, exhibition hall, after-party, and pitch competition
More Info – please visit www.indoor.ag/asia and www.indoor.ag/pitch, email hello@indoor.ag or call +1.775.623.7116

Grown Rogue Wins Highest THC % and Highest Terpenes % at Grow Classic

We are incredibly proud of our cultivation team for the best in class flower that they consistently produce.”

— Obie Strickler

MEDFORD, OR, USA, December 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Grown Rogue took home top honors from the Grow Classic held in Eugene, OR last weekend. The company was one of 31 elite growers from across the state of Oregon who entered the three-category competition, in which Grown Rogue took first place for Highest THC %, first place for Highest Terpenes % and third place in Growers Choice.

"Grown Rogue is honored to accept these awards from among the best growers in the state,” said Grown Rogue Co-Founder and CEO, Obie Strickler. “We are incredibly proud of our cultivation team for the best in class flower that they consistently produce. It is very gratifying to have this competition validate the quality we have strived so hard to achieve."

Grown Rogue’s Head Cultivator, Ken Cobb, said, “The Grow Classic is a true grower’s event that brings together an amazing group of cultivators. There was a lot of camaraderie in the room, and we left feeling blessed and appreciative to be among such a great group of people. We want to thank Grow Magazine; this was definitely one of the cooler events we’ve been to and we look forward to participating again next year.”

Grow Classic is an invitation-only competition hosted by Grow Magazine each November and bills itself as The Quintessential Cannabis Horticulture Competition. Thirty-one growers were provided with four clones from the same cultivar from the same mother plant, and invited to grow the best plants possible. For the Growers Choice award, only the participating growers themselves are the judges with blind labeled products– so there are no paid or potentially biased judges. The event awarded $15,000 in cash and over $5,000 in prizes to the winners.

Grown Rogue produces top quality flower, innovative nitrogen-sealed pre-rolls and extracts including oils, shatter, sugar and wax all classified according to experiences reflected in the name ROGUE – Relax, Optimize, Groove, Uplift and Energize.

Office of Matthew Bogard, MD (N/A:N/A)

My family owned a pharmacy in the area when I was growing up and I came to learn about Wyman Heights while delivering prescriptions. I fell in love with the picturesque views of the Missouri River”

— Dr. Matthew Bogard, doctor in Iowa and Nebraska

OMAHA, NEBRASKA, UNITED STATES, December 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Matthew Bogard is excited to represent the Wyman Heights Neighborhood Association as a member of the Association leadership along with four other dedicated members of the community.

Wyman Heights is a neighborhood with a proud history that dates to 1902 when local real estate investor Henry Wyman began acquiring property on a large hill north of Florence. He planned to develop an elite neighborhood which in 1925 he re-platted as Wyman Heights.

Lots began to sell in the late 1920’s with sales stymied by the Great Depression. Interest in the neighborhood increased in the years leading up to and after WWII as doctors, lawyers, business owners and socialites discovered the natural beauty of the area. Because of this rich history, Wyman Heights enjoys an eclectic mix of housing styles built over a nearly 40-year span. Many prominent newsmakers in Omaha’s history called Wyman Heights home, including Peter Kiewit (founder of Kiewit construction), Gene Leahy (longtime Omaha Mayor and catalyst of downtown redevelopment), Cecil Wittson, M.D. (prominent early psychiatrics and namesake of Wittson Hall at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, the Reeds Family (founder of Reed’s Ice Cream), David Hayden (Hayden House Restaurants), and Dick Collins, M.D. (The Cooking Cardiologist).

The Wyman Heights Neighborhood Association was formed in the 1960’s to support the growth, development, and preservation of this unique neighborhood. It is in that capacity we are contacting you now.

“My family owned a pharmacy in the area when I was growing up and I came to learn about Wyman Heights while delivering prescriptions, says Matthew Bogard, M.D. “I fell in love with the picturesque views of the Missouri River and the Loess Hills. Neighbors are all so friendly and supportive of each other and our neighborhood in general. I love the landscaping we maintain at the entrance and bus stop as well as the holiday decorations we place every winter.”

About Dr. Matthew Bogard

A native of Omaha, Nebraska, Dr. Matt Bogard practices emergency medicine at multiple hospitals including Lucas County Health Center in Chariton, Iowa. Presently, he is Board Certified in Family Medicine by the National Board of Physicians and Surgeons and the American Academy of Family Physicians. Dr. Bogard is Board-Eligible in Emergency Medicine and is on pace track to be dual-boarded in the near future.

His training as a medical professional began at Creighton University, from which he graduated cum laude as a Bachelor of Science in Health Administration and Policy with an additional focus in Biology. Following this, Dr. Matthew Bogard received his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Nebraska College of Medicine and gained further experience as a resident physician and later chief resident physician in the Department of Family Medicine at the prestigious University of Nebraska Medical Center.

CleanBC climate plan boosts British Columbia’s signal for renewable fuel use and production

Advanced Biofuels Canada lauds the Government of British Columbia for its new climate plan, with critical role for low-carbon renewable fuels

Today’s announcement builds on a decade of smart, hard work by provincial staff and political leaders. An increased LCFS is a vote of confidence in the capacity of biofuels to deliver.””

— Ian Thomson

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Government of British Columbia released on December 5th its CleanBC climate plan, which charts a path to 19 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions reductions by 2030—an ambitious yet achievable set of measures that put low-carbon biofuels at the forefront of the Province’s climate efforts. It also puts BC firmly in a leadership role on the national stage.

Highlights from the CleanBC plan include:
• Strengthening the low carbon fuel standard to a 20% reduction in fuel carbon intensity by 2030
• Supporting ramp up of new renewable fuel production to 650 million litres by 2030
• Zero-Emission Vehicles to make up 10% of new light duty vehicle sales in 2025, 30% in 2030, and 100% in 2040
• 15% minimum renewable content in industrial natural gas consumption, and cleaner industrial operations through electrification, CO2 storage, and direct air capture
• Improved energy efficiency in buildings

The 19 million tonnes of reductions in the CleanBC plan represent approximately 75% of the Province’s overall emissions reduction goal in 2030. The remaining 25% of the reduction measures will be determined over the next 18 to 24 months and will include new clean energy options, waste management, and reducing emissions in forestry, land use and agriculture. The CleanBC plan suggests that by 2030, over 40% of diesel and 10% of gasoline could come from biofuels.

Advanced Biofuels Canada released a statement today by President Ian Thomson. “CleanBC is sending an excellent signal at an opportune time. Today’s announcement builds on a decade of smart, hard work by provincial staff and political leaders. The convergence in BC of sustainable feedstocks and robust technologies can spur new production of low-carbon biofuels and create sustainable jobs across the province, with existing biofuel options continuing to provide a foundation for new fuels. BC’s renewable and low carbon fuel regulation has already reduced emissions by 6.37 million tonnes between 2010 and 2016. An increased LCFS is a vote of confidence in the capacity of biofuels to deliver.”
