Initial assessment of biotech regulatory documents pleases NCGA

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration published documents addressing the pre-market regulatory oversight of biotechnology-based agricultural tools. The National Corn Growers Association is pleased that the agency has included input given by NCGA and others throughout the rule-making process while focusing on the importance of science-based regulations.Corn farmers have a strong interest in the availability of new technologies to enhance the sustainability, productivity and competitiveness of U.S. agriculture. Agriculture biotechnology and next generation breeding techniques allow growers to increase yields while decreasing inputs. Meeting demand, improving processes and minimizing environmental impacts are what make modern corn production a dynamic industry. The documents published indicate that, in large part, federal agencies agree with the basis of our stance and strive to create a more efficient regulatory process allowing growers greater access to new products.NCGA continues working to fully analyze the implications and impacts of these documents with awareness of the importance of the balance of access to technology and markets.last_img read more

Protect Your Mindset from Negativity

first_imgI watched a young woman post her very first video to LinkedIn this week. She was asking experienced salespeople to help her understand how to deal with what she called “the roller coaster” of sales. She explained that the roller coaster was made up of highs,when she was engaging with clients, helping them, and closing deals. The lows, she described as the rejection she felt when cold calling, and the challenges of winning deals. She said that she loved her work, but she wanted to know how to live on the roller coaster.For a lot of people, her interpretation of events sounds like an accurate portrayal of sales. But it isn’t. It isn’t an accurate portrayal of anything other than an individual’s interpretation of a certain set of events. This interpretation is unhealthy. Let me explain why.In the Normal Course of Business There is no reason to interpret events that happen in the normal course of business as negative events. To do so is to invest emotional energy into something that provides no return for the investment you make. More still, it’s an inaccurate interpretation, and one that causes people to have a change in their mindset. It moves them from optimistic, future oriented, and empowered to pessimistic, backwards looking, disempowered. That shift in no way benefits the person whose mindset is changed by an event.In sales, you are very likely to be told no every single day. Provided you’re prospecting and asking people to meet with you, a no answer is more likely that a yes answer. If this is true (and if you’re reading this you know it is), then why would one attach a negative meaning to something that happens every day in the normal course of business?More still, no matter how well you sell, you are still in a lose deals. No one bats 1000 percent in sales, and no one goes undefeated. For most people, a 33 percent average is enough to put them on the leaderboard, provided they are prospecting and doing the necessary work.Interpreting events that happen in the normal course of the work you do as something negative will change your mindset from one that is empowered to one that is disempowered. It can shift you from being a person who is acting on their world and doing the things that are in their control, to someone who believes the world is acting on them, and that they are powerless to change the results. It makes you susceptible to people who are negative, pessimistic, cynical, and skeptical. All the things that you can’t be and succeed at the same time.Sometimes, through no fault of your own, you run into a string of no answers or a string of losses all in a row. Other times, you run into a string of yes responses, simply because the Gods of prospecting smile on people who take action.If investing negative emotional energy in any outcome would provide better results, I’d be the first one to endorse it. But the opposite is true. Your outcomes are better when you invest positive, future oriented, optimistic, empowered emotional energy into whatever it is you’re doing.Like a boxer, the best advice I can give you is to protect yourself at all times. Protect your mindset from negativity, and anything or anyone who will cause you to believe that the things that happen in the normal course of business should somehow be treated as a catastrophe. Don’t invest too much meaning in things that in the larger scheme of things, mean nothing.last_img read more

Layoffs at Global mean further cuts to local news

first_imgAdvertisement Facebook Camera operators, reporters, anchors, control room staff, make-up artists and other production crew received layoff notices in newsrooms across Canada, with Global’s most successful station in Vancouver taking the biggest hit with 21 job cuts. Advertisement TORONTO – Unifor is concerned about the continued erosion of local news as Corus-owned Global News cuts nearly 70 jobs across Canada.“Fewer journalists will be out gathering news from every region from Vancouver to Halifax and if the Maritime newscasts now come from Toronto – how can you still call that local news?” asked Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. Login/Register With:center_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment “In Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, the evening local news will no longer be produced at our Halifax studios and will be anchored and broadcast from Toronto starting Monday,” said David MacPherson, President of the Maritimes unit of Unifor local M1 which represents workers at Global. “Our studios will be empty after the morning show ends at 9 am.”While Corus says it will post several new “digital” positions that focus on online news, its broadcast revenues continue to shrink and the outlook is bleak if the government doesn’t take action now.“The federal government stood by while Canada’s local newspapers struggled and now our members in TV news are being asked to do more to fill the same number of programming hours with fewer resources, all on this government’s watch,” said Dias. “The CRTC paved the way for the cuts announced today by watering down the obligations for big media companies like Corus to protect local news and it’s proving disastrous.”Broadcasters in Canada are obligated to air local TV news as a condition of license but last year the CRTC softened requirements that they maintain historical levels of programming, and decided not to set rules requiring “feet on the street” coverage, leaving media companies free to cut local news jobs over the term of their five-year broadcasting licenses.Unifor is asking the CRTC to review local news and make strong local coverage a binding condition of license, before it’s too late, as part of the union’s ongoing #savelocalnews campaign.Unifor is Canada’s largest media union with 12,000 workers across Canada. The union advocates for all working people and their rights, fights for equality and social justice in Canada and abroad, and strives to create progressive change for a better future.
