“We havent seen new opportunities since the agreement,” beekeeper Yosypenko says. EU’s sweet tooth The EU is the world’s biggest importer of honey, consuming 150,000 tons in 2015, of which Ukraine supplied 26,000 tons. In 2016, Ukraine supplied 36,000 tons, and less than three weeks into 2017, it has already supplied 14,000 tons. The 28-country bloc quadrupled imports of Ukrainian honey between 2011 and 2015, reducing its imports from Russia after the Kremlin launched its war against Ukraine in 2014. Within the EU, Germany and Poland remain the largest importers of Ukrainian honey. The potential of Ukraine’s honey industry is huge, says Ukrainian Agribusiness Club’s Hrytsenko. “Ukrainian honey is competitive. It’s cheaper, but the quality is just as good,” she said. The price of Ukrainian honey on the EU market is $2,300-$3,000 per ton. European-produced honey, in contrast, costs $4,000 per ton.

And, good to his word, he appeared one day, with a truck full of swings, seesaws, and slides. As soon as construction began, a neighboring Jewish community sent its privately owned drone to investigate. The Israeli authorities were alerted to illicit playground being assembled. They arrived in full military strength to demolish the playground, acting with such speed and ferocity that the demolition was completed while the Italian diplomat was still in the village. In Palestine, meanwhile, Mahmoud Abbas, the 81-year-old leader of the Palestinian Authority (PA), refuses to engage in succession planning, even as he is being treated for cardiac disease. There is relatively little open opposition to the PA, which employs 150,000 West Bankers, most of whom support a family of at least six– making some ¾ million people directly dependent on the PA and many more indirectly so.

Within the Pentagon, he estimated that approximately 150 special access programs existed that weren't even acknowledged. These programs are not known about by the highest members of government and the highest ranking officials in the military. He determined that most of these programs were dominated by private contractors (Lockheed Martin, Boeing, etc.) and that he had no idea as to how these programs were funded(5)(8). Dwight Eisenhower, former 5 star U.S. general (highest possible rank) and President of the United States also warned us about secrecy and the acquisition of unwarranted influence within the department of defence with his farewell speech: In the council of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential disaster of the rise of mis placed power exists, and will persist.

Per a WTHI report, Kellogg’s Snacks Plant in Seelyville, IN is participating in the #DumpKelloggs boycott, and is set to close by September of this year. Company officials announced in August of 2016 that the plant will cease work, leaving 150 people out of a job. The plant will close out in phases beginning in the first quarter of 2017, and officials expect it to be completely closed by September. Kelloggs will look to sell the building once operations have been completely shut down. Follow Breitbart.tv on Twitter @BreitbartVideo

WHEN couples tango outdoors in Buenos Aires, it is usually to cadge coins from tourists. A recent display, outside the city hall, had a new purpose: to draw attention to the plight of the city’s milongas , tango events where the dancers’ only audience is other dancers. Perhaps 150 milongas take place weekly in dance halls and community centres across the capital, either in the afternoons or after midnight. “They are the heart of the tango,” says Julio Bassan, president of the Association of Milonga Organisers (AOM). And they are in trouble. With a weak economy and high inflation cutting into incomes, attendance fell by as much as half last year, Mr Bassan reckons; 17 milongas closed. “When there’s so much uncertainty, the first thing that people cut back on is recreation,” says Jimena Salzman, who runs the Milonga de las Morochas (“Milonga of the Dark-Haired Women”).

The search of a 120,000 sq km (46,000 sq mile) area of the Indian Ocean cost about A$200 million ($150 million). But the three countries involved were reluctant to keep looking without new evidence about the plane's final resting place. Flight MH370 lost contact over the Gulf of Thailand in the early hours of March 8, 2014. Subsequent analysis of radar and satellite contacts suggested someone on board may have deliberately switched off the plane's transponder before diverting it thousands of kilometers out over the Indian Ocean. Since the crash, there have been competing theories over whether the plane was hijacked and whether it was under the control of anyone when it finally ran out of fuel. 'Not happy' The end of the underwater search drew swift and angry reactions from relatives of those on board, who have repeatedly called for the hunt to be expanded.

A crowdfunding campaign to put a photo of two hijab-wearing girls on billboards across Australia has raised over $150,000, after the image was withdrawn from an ad in Melbourne following social media outcry. The image of the pair of girls was removed last week from a Melbourne sign advertising an Australia Day event after QES, the company hosting the board, allegedly received threats and objections from far-right groups. The Guardian reports that Campaign Edge, an advertising agency, set up a crowdfunding campaign in response to the controversy, calling for the image to be reprinted in an Australia Day campaign. Dee Madigan, the agencys creative director, said she started the fund because she felt like the bastards were winning when the image was removed. Crowd-funding for #australiaday billboard passes $115k. Will now be erected in all capital cities https://t.

With 42,000 base points, that equates to an extra 10,500 points over the year, worth $157.50. Free same-day standby ($75) : You can also standby on an earlier flight at no charge as an A-List member, one of the newest perks offered to elite travelers on Southwest. However, the terms and conditions state that this is only available for flights between the same cities up to two hours earlier than your original flight (and note that free standby is also provided for Anytime and Business Select fares, so this perk only applies to Wanna Get Away tickets). For flights outside this two-hour window, you're still given priority over non-elites but must pay a fare difference if a seat opens up. Given this limited utility, I'm valuing this a bit lower than comparable benefits on other carriers. Priority check-in and security ($150) : You'll also get priority check-in and security benefits as an A-List member, which can be especially beneficial if you're checking bags (Southwest's policy of free checked bags tends to create longer check-in lines than other airlines).

In March, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine adopted the Ukrainian State Cyber Security Strategy in order to strengthen Ukrainian state agenciesdefenses against virtual criminals. “This year, and the next five to 10 years, will be known as the (years of) cyber wars and conflicts, where everything online can be a weapon: medical records, stock exchanges, hedge funds, and shared passwords for retail and social media,” said Rock. “All these sorts of internet-connected companies will be targeted by hackers.” Online target Ukraine’s parliament has allocated Hr 150 million ($5 million) for cyber defenses in 2017. Although the investigations into the origins of the latest big cyber attacks are still going on in Ukraine, U. S Homeland Security has confirmed to the International Business Times news website that software called BlackEnergy, a favorite with Russian hacking groups, was found lurking in Ukrainian power station systems.
