There are several companies around America that chose to update consistently, and they lose the taste of the olden days when they were much simpler companies. True Value has remained authentic in every respect, and they have chosen to become a company that looks more like a part of Americana than a standard shopping mall. Their aesthetic is unique to their brand, and everyone who comes into a True Value will see Kenneth’s work.

#2: Why Is Merchandising Important?

Merchandising in an important part of retail businesses because they must have a method of retaining customers that makes their stores familiar. The familiarity of every store makes customer comfortable, and Kenneth directs his team to keep True Value stores as soft and welcoming as possible. It is quite simple to keep True Value as it is, and the company manages to keep modern products in the store without issue.

It may have been decades since the customer’s last visit, but they will feel as though the store has not changed The unforgettable qualities of the brand are found in a lack of drastic changes to their style.

True Value Hardware has bee made the most effective and beautiful hardware store in America by Kenneth’s team of merchandising experts. It is quite simple to shop in their stores, and they produce a nostalgia that other brands do not have.


The British Parliament And A Needed Agricultural Policy

BBC reported last week that among the many things that the British Parliament was set to discuss in relation to the British vote to leave the European Union, there was one thing lacking: agriculture. I know, I know. Agriculture can be a boring topic if you live in a city or have never had to worry about what yields you’re getting or what the vote to leave the European Union could potentially do to the price of potatoes and corn that you’re growing right in your own backyard, but this is an important issue.

If Britain were to fail to agree to a preferable agricultural policy, it could potentially leave itself paying higher costs for lower-quality goods that are not protected by high E.U. standards on everything from the use of pesticides to the use of certain dyes to create artificial coloring in cereal. Facing a higher price for lower-quality goods, the most vulnerable British may be priced out of the market entirely, and may be forced into food insecurity. However, middle-class British families may turn to American produce that is relatively cheap and high-quality accounting for transportation costs. International demand for American products like almonds, roses, soy pushes up the price for all of us here at home, too.

You may not care about Brexit, and you may not care about Britain’s new agricultural relationship with the E.U., but when your almonds are costing you 30% more per pound, you’ll definitely notice.

Seattle Genetics in Cancer Treatment Technology

If you follow the developments in the medical field and the biotechnology industry, you must have come across a cancer treatment called Anti-body Drug Conjugate (ADC). Cancer is a disease that claims lives in a very short time. The disease is known to waste the health of the patient and leave them at the mercy of drugs and chemotherapy sessions. However, thanks to research there are scientists who have discovered a drug technology which can help these patients.

The ADC technology works in a way that the cells which have cancer are killed. The good news is that the cells which have no cancer are not affected by the toxicity of the chemotherapy sessions which patient undergoes. The agents are sent to kill cells with cancer only. The innovative technology will ensure that patients suffering cancer do not die or take long to cure after their chemotherapy sessions are over.

The success of Seattle Genetics can be attributed to the leadership and management of the company. The founder of the company, who is also the CEO, Dr. Clay Siegall co-founded the company in 1998. The original plan was to offer the biotechnology industry with innovative medical solutions for diseases such as cancer. The team at Seattle Genetics has dedicated their time and resources to finding innovative treatment alternatives such as the recently launched ADC treatment options.
Most people know Mr. Siegall as an entrepreneur but they are not aware of the fact that by profession, he is a scientist. He is trained and he specialises in the area of therapies. He is also interested in the area of drug development. As a business mogul and reputed entrepreneur, Mr. Siegall has been the recipient of various awards and accolades. He was, for example, given an award by Ernst & Young in 2012, for being the Entrepreneur of the Year.

For the biotechnology and the biomedical industry, the ADC treatment alternative is welcome news. The technology will help more patients get treatment and recuperate faster after their therapies are done. The company is dedicate towards offering more biomedical solutions in an innovative manner.

Canadian Farmers Go After Higher Priced Craps

Farmers in Alberta started planting more durum wheat, lentils, and peas, claims Edmonton Journal in a recent post.

On the other hand, seeding of major crops including all wheat varieties, barley, and canola has declined. Wheat production alone has declined by 3 percent since last year. The reasons cited is record global supply and resulting lower prices.

When it comes to durum wheat, it’s up by 34 percent since last year, and up by 78 percent, based on five-year average. Currently, durum wheat is priced higher by $2 per bushel in comparison to other varieties.

This kind of wheat is in high demand in Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Middle East as it is used for making noodles. At the same time, in Europe there’s a decrease in production due to worries over rain and crop quality. This is benefiting Canadian farmers.

“We’ve never seen the ability to pre-sell your crop for 40 cents a pound before you’ve even planted, so again it was kind of a no-brainer,” said Brennan Turner, the CEO of FarmLead.

Meanwhile, pea crops increased to nearly two million acres, which is a 29 percent rise in comparison to 2015, and almost 70 percent above the five-year average. Yellow peas are now in high demand in India after three seasons of poor rainfall. Now, Canadian farmers are ready to take advantage of it.

The Decline of Mining and The Resurgence of Agriculture

Could a shift in the economy bring back agriculture in Australia? In a story posted earlier on BBC, it was reported that Australia is quickly growing its agricultural sector to make up for a decline in its once-powerful mining industry following a cool in the industry’s boom.

That would be great news for Australia, which struggles with feeding its population off of only food it produces in-country and must spend millions in transportation costs just to get foodstuffs shipped to its consumers from places as far away as the United States. This would also be great because hopefully, what will happen is that a resurgence in the agricultural industry will mean increased profits for small farmers as well as large farmers and agricultural organizations. Increased capital from a surge in revenue could be directed towards research and development of higher-yielding crop varieties that could help feed more Australians off less acreage, a potential plus in a country that is feeling the literal burn of climate change more than other countries.

The decline of the mining industry must be sad for families of miners and union workers, and the Australian government should support them as their economy continues to change. However, this is a golden opportunity for Australia to grow its economy, sustain itself and become more independent in its production of basic necessities, and fund research and development of more sustainable methods of farming.

There is no downside to this when you look at the Australian economy, so let’s see where they take their agriculture industry.

Agricultural Production Is In Danger of Falling, Study Says

In a study published in the journal Nature Climate Change earlier this year, researchers reported their projections that crop yields could decrease in a decade without additional research into creating the most innovating varieties possible to keep up with an increasingly warm and dry planet.

Many of us think of the past few decades as being filled with conflict over oil, but what looks like is happening is that more and more people are having to live off of food that is increasingly insecure. That means that policymakers planning agricultural policy as well as individual farmers feeling pressured to cultivate larger and larger yields all the time aren’t sure where the next yield will come from, or if the land which that yield came from can support another cycle.

This is a problem that is largely being felt by people in the developing world, which means that the story may not get much airplay here in the United States. However, if we don’t deal with this issue, and continue to not deal with larger issues related to climate change, the area that is suitable for growing food will continue to shrink. Water will continue to become lower-quality, and more scarce, meaning agriculture will have to fight with the average consumer over who can get limited water available to them both. Eventually, we’ll feel the pinch and it’ll turn into a painful punch quickly from there.

For our future interests and for our fellow human beings now, let’s invest in agriculture.

Sad News Be Gone: 6,000 Pigs Rescued In China

Sad news is a bummer, but it’s awesome when sad news becomes good news and we can all go home feeling good about ourselves at the end of the day. If you agree with that, here’s a story for you. 6,000 pigs were recently rescued in China after photos of their owners tearfully mourning their impending death after a flood threatened to drown them went viral.

This is a great story, and it’s nice that these kinds of things are still happening in the world. War and political clashes and other really serious things are going on all over the world and that all deserves our serious attention and thoughtful action, but 6,000 pigs being rescued is the short break from all of that everyone could use.

The pigs were rescued by an organization that manages an agricultural business elsewhere in China, and though it is likely they were sent to be made into product for consumption, the farmers who raised the pigs are happy they didn’t die in the flood. These farmers were also able to recover some of the cost of the 6,000 pigs and damages for rebuilding their farm.

Pigs are such a cute, fat, pink part of any good farm, so it’s great news for an otherwise gloomy day in journalism that these cute little guys were able to be transported to a safer home elsewhere.

U.N. Says We’re Eating More Fish Than Ever: Should We Worry About Overfishing?

The U.N. recently reported that goal fish consumption had hit an all-time high. At more than 2 pounds every year, the average human being is eating more fish than at any point in history. More people on earth and higher consumption means that business is booming in the fishing industry.

It also means that agricultural specialists whose jobs it is to develop policies that keep wild fish populations healthy while also creating more fish in non-natural fisheries have a difficult job. They must balance the potential of economic growth with the fact that our waters are being overfished and we have a Congress seemingly unable to act on any issue nonetheless the safe number of pounds of fish to take out of our waters every year.

Yet, it’s still an important issue for us to all deal with, even if we don’t work in the agriculture field. We should shop for fish that aren’t endangered, aren’t at risk for being endangered, and don’t come from water sources that are being overfished or are at risk for being overfished. The tech community and community organizers on the ground should develop and publicize an app that helps connect consumers to environmentally conscious food sources easily and quickly.

Really, our national government may be inept at dealing with issues that we care about and are of importance to the country, but we can use our money and our small circle of influence to get other people interested and organized for change, and we can make a difference.

Bees for Prosperity?

Yesterday, BBC released a story about a group of students using capital and beehives to create a system of financial mobility for Tunisian beekeepers. This process works by investing in beehives and supplies for each beekeeper, taking a reasonable cut of the profits made from honey for three years, and then letting that beekeeper keep the beehives and all of the profits forever.

This is fantastic, and both private and public charitable efforts should begin to transition in nature from simply tossing money at a country and giving it to interests and governments that sometimes have no infrastructure or care to support the most vulnerable among them with that money to using money smartly to connect capable farmers on the ground in poor countries with financial capital and investment expertise somewhere else in the world.

Much of the world is under-farmed, and so much labor in the world sits initialized because jobs just aren’t available in these struggling economies, and the capital certainly doesn’t exist to jumpstart them either. If we used a paltry amount of our foreign aid budget, $100 million, to the simple idea of beehives for farmers in this model, we could support 1.1 million farmers in the developing world, giving them the money they need to sustain themselves and their families for a smaller investment than the sum it takes to feed a country year after year.

So, let’s invest our charitable dollars in poor countries, and give them the tools to support themselves.
