Construction of 24-acre abattoir in WCB raises suspicion

first_imgConstruction of an abattoir is ongoing at Onverwagt, West Coast Berbice, Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice), but the location and the size of the facility have raised suspicion among farmers.24-acre of land being fenced for abattoirIn December 2016, the Agriculture Ministry said that the cattle industry is expected to grow with the establishment of two abattoirs in Regions Five and Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo), claiming that those facilities are expected to see improved breeding stock and better husbandry practices. In January 2018, the Ministry again announced that the beef industry is soon to benefit from the construction of a state-of-the-art abattoir in Region Five.Head of the Guyana Livestock Development Authority (GLDA), Nigel Cumberbatch said the construction of the abattoir is in keeping with the agency’s drive to ensure higher quality meat for consumers.He also disclosed that Region Five is deemed the most suitable location for the abattoir since “Regions Five and Six are the largest cattle producing regions and we feel it is important to put the abattoir where the animals are. The construction will cost us in excess of $2 million. It will be an international standard abattoir,” Cumberbatch explained.Mohamed RafaideenIn November last year, the Ministry of Agriculture announced that through funding from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), it will be constructing a “high efficiency” ready-to-use abattoir in the Mahaica Mahaicony Abary-Agriculture Development Authority (MMA-ADA). Recently, the fencing of a 24-acre plot commenced.However, the project is being questioned by Mohamed Rafaideen, a Rice Producers Association representative who also produces rice in the MMA Scheme.According to him, Government is utilising prime land for the facility.“They are putting an abattoir on 24 acres of land when you probably only need half of an acre,” he told this publication.However, he said that is the smallest of issues as he pointed out environmental hazards of placing the facility at Onverwagt.Rafaideen said an abattoir should not be in the rice cultivating area since the area is one where chemicals are used.“When we process the meat here and have to export it, will we be able to get international certification for the meat coming out of this abattoir while chemicals are used right around the abattoir?” he asked.The farmer also looked at the cost to fence 24 acres with a concrete base and metal pipes connected with mesh.“It is very expensive… The twenty-four acres again is a waste of money. If we have an abattoir on half an acre of land, then it will make sense with this type of fencing, but right now what they’re doing is wasting money. What will they do with twenty-four acres? Are we going to raise the animals at the abattoir from the initial stage then take it into the abattoir?”“You need to have persons doing things which make sense. We have comedians.”He said only about 5000 square feet is needed for the building.“Definitely it’s a waste of money and it shows gross incompetence all the current Administration,” he said.Meanwhile, when contacted, an official at the Ministry said with an international standard abattoir, “we can also say to the persons who are bringing in meat, that we are slaughtering under proper hygienic conditions and if the quality is good, we see no reason why you cannot purchase animals feeling satisfied with the wholesomeness of the meat that will be coming out of the abattoir”.last_img read more

Will Facebook Make You Sad Depends How You Use It

Sign up for our daily newsletter Get more great content like this delivered right to you! Country Email Using Facebook makes people sadder, at least according to some research. But just what is it about the social network that takes a hit on our mood? A study of the different ways of interacting with the site now offers an answer: Grazing on the content of other people’s idealized lives may make reality painful.Scientists have long debated Facebook’s impact on users’ in-the-moment mood as well as their deeper satisfaction with life. Some studies have found that the site makes us happier; others, sadder.One of the problems is that most studies were cross-sectional, taking a snapshot of people at one point of time. But that makes it difficult to separate our use of Facebook from the many other factors known to affect well-being, from overwork to romantic meltdowns. An August 2013 study led by Ethan Kross, a psychologist at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, sidestepped this problem by studying people’s use of Facebook over time, surveying them about their well-being five times per day for 2 weeks. The conclusion was that the more you use Facebook, the sadder you get. Click to view the privacy policy.

But the results offered no clue to what it is about the social network, or how people are using it, that might have this negative effect.Since then, a collaboration of labs including Kross’s has tried to tease apart the mechanisms. Rather than just studying people’s well-being and their use of Facebook over time, the researchers performed an “intervention,” having subjects repeatedly visit a lab in Ann Arbor and use their personal Facebook accounts in specific ways. After all, interaction with Facebook consists of a whole set of activities, from browsing photos and “liking” websites to directly interacting with others through messages and comments.Last week at the annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science in San Francisco, California, Kross shared a sneak preview of his team’s results. Their findings suggest that there is no effect on well-being if one “actively” uses Facebook. When subjects directly interacted with the social network by posting status updates, sharing content, and messaging others, their mood stayed the same over the course of a day. But the negative impact on well-being that Kross discovered in his 2013 study reappeared for individuals who were made to “passively” use the site—just browsing through photographs of other people’s happy moments, reading people’s conversations, and not contributing anything.“Using Facebook is not bad for well-being per se,” Kross concluded, but “grazing” its content is. Possible reasons for this were bounced around by the audience of psychologists. For example, one theory holds that people post idealized versions of themselves on Facebook, and comparing those to your own real-world life is toxic if you don’t take part in the online theater. As for the longer term effect on life satisfaction, “the jury is still out,” he said. (The study is now under review at a journal, Kross says.)“This kind of intervention study is exactly what we need more of,” says Megan Moreno, a clinical psychologist at Seattle Children’s Hospital in Washington who uses Facebook data to study adolescent health and well-being. “What I want to know next is how this negative impact maps to some of the signs of depression we’ve been tracking.” If improving people’s well-being is as easy as encouraging active online interactions and discouraging passive browsing, “that would be amazing.” read more
