“Suwaan bay humay?” Has the Boholano concept of the sacred rice changed?

Across time, Boholano attitude towards rice and its consumption has apparently changed. Rice, to Boholanos is as sacred as ubi, its ethno-religious root crop. Such is so, that when farmer’s child trips and accidentally drops an ubi, the ubi gets a kiss, the child gets a whack in the butt. When farmers dry the palay […].....»»

Rice with ‘bukbok’ safe for consumption after fumigation — NFA

The National Food Authority (NFA) on Sunday clarified that the sacks of rice infested with rice weevil (bukbok) are still safe for consumption once the fumigation process is done. NFA Spokesperson Rex Estoperez even said that NFA officials including its Administrator Jason Aquino would be the first to eat the infested rice to assure the public it is still safe. "Very safe 'yan [for consumption], may instruction nga si NFA Administrator (Aquino) na once matapos 'yang fumigation, ang una pong kakain n'yan ay mga taga NFA. Ipapakita natin sa publiko na 'yung NFA officials at administrator ay kumakain ng nabukbok at nafumigate na bigas," Estoperez said in an interview over Radyo Inquirer. ...Keep on reading: Rice with ‘bukbok’ safe for consumption after fumigation — NFA.....»»

Rody OKs rice imports to augment NFA buffer

By Ted Tuvera and Angie M. Rosales President Duterte has allowed the National Food Authority (NFA) to import 250,000 metric tons of rice amid reports of a shortage in government stock of the staple grain.Inter-agency NFA Council chairman Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco said Mr. Duterte has allowed the importation aside from an expected shipment of 325,000 MT of rice in February.“We have no option but to follow the President to activate the 250,000 MT on standby that will be on top of the 325,000 MT that will arrive anytime this month,” Evasco said.It turns out, however, that Presidential spokesman Harry Roque missed the President’s instruction to Evasco.Talking to reporters at Palace briefing, Roque said there is no need to import rice yet. “The point is, there’s already rice on its way, no need to authorize the standby order of 250,000 MT because there’s more than enough rice on its way to beef up the NFA stock,” Roque said. Claiming that there is no rice shortage, NFA administrator Jason Aquino said he plans to import rice to replenish the buffer stock.Notably, Evasco and Aquino had been at odds with each other on what mode of rice importation should be done.Evasco cited elements inside the NFA that manipulate importation processes to make money from it.Roque said that Evasco has nonetheless the trust of Mr. Duterte.“If he [Evasco] sees that there are rumblings because somebody wants to make money, so be it, but I’m happy that Secretary Evasco is on top of the situation,” Roque said. “He enjoys full trust and confidence of the President, that’s why until now the President has not commented on this issue because he trusts that Secretary Evasco will do what is best,” he added.Binay: ‘Get your acts together’Sen. Nancy Binay, however, urged agriculture officials to get their acts together on the reported shortage in rice supply of the NFA.Binay took note of the conflicting claims of NFA and Department of Agriculture (DA) officials on the status of NFA rice supply in the market.“My call is for them to hopefully talk. They should stop talking behind the back or blaming each other. It’s high time that they talk and settle the forecasting on the country’s rice stock,” she said.“I hope that DA (Department of Agriculture) Secretary (Manny) Piñol, the NFA Council, and the NFA leadership would sit down and discuss this matter. They should give priority to the need of the nation more than the internal issues among the different agencies,” Binay said.NFA spokesman Rebecca Olarte, last week, said that NFA-accredited rice retailers will not be able to sell NFA rice for the time being and confirmed that it has decided to temporarily discontinue issuing NFA rice to accredited retailers due to low supply.Piñol and Evasco belied the rice shortage, insisting that there is no shortfall on the rice supply in the country and they even said that there are enough stocks for consumption for the next 96 days.“My only concern is that we do not need to reach the stage when the poor can’t buy NFA rice. I guess it is a wakeup call for everybody,” said Binay.The senator herself attested the apparent lack in supply of NFA rice as she tried to purchase some for distribution as relief goods and was told that the price increased from P1,400 to P1,600 per sack.Binay supported the move taken by Sen. Cynthia Villar in conducting an investigation on whether there’s “artificial” rice supply shortage to effect an increase in the price of NFA rice in the market.Meanwhile, the government is expecting palay or paddy rice harvest of 3 million metric tons in the first quarter, which will augment the 2.8 million metric ton surplus from 2017, Agriculture Secretary Emanuel Piñol told DZMM.Piñol said there was no shortage in subsidized rice sold by the NFA, adding raising prices due to an alleged lack in supply amounted to “daylight robbery.

Keto diet–would I recommend it? Yes, but…

Last month, I tried doing something I've never tried: go on a diet. No, it's not the one where you drink just lemon water and, when you're starving, meditate to make wanting to eat go away. Nor is it about moderation and eating brown rice. I decided that if I were to go on a diet, it would be something crazy and educational. After all, I've spent a good part of my youth trying to expand my mind by drinking stuff, and most of my adult life expanding my stomach by eating stuff. So I wanted to try something completely different. Successful failure It was, like what happened to Apollo 13, a successful failure.

Drought-stricken Cape Town counts the cost

  South African winemaker Marlize Jacobs looks out across the parched brown earth that sustains her award-winning vines, surveying the effects of the water crisis ravaging Cape Town and surrounding areas.   "It's the strangest thing -- I think vines like to suffer. When the berries are shrinking, there's more concentration of flavors," she told AFP, describing the impact on her crop of the worst drought in 100 years.   The Western Cape region has gone without significant rains for more than three years, forcing South Africa's second city to slash residential water consumption by more than 60 percent.   Wine flavors may benefit but water-intens...Keep on reading: Drought-stricken Cape Town counts the cost.....»»
