3-Day Virtual US International Show Scheduled for September 21-23

 US-based buyers will come together online with food suppliers from Central and South America in the US international Food Show (USIF) Sept. 21-23.

Latin American food is the third most popular food in the US, according to CHD Expert, a foodservice database and analytics firm. At USIFE, over 450 show exhibitors will represent 23 Latin American countries — including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay and Venezuela. Although this is the USIF’s inaugural event, show organizers have over 20 years of experience working with US buyers.

Buyers — from supermarkets, specialty health stores, department stores, pharmacies, food service, convenience, online stores and more — will have access to everything from beverages to whole grains, meats, seafood and vegan options. In addition to favorites such as arepas, pupusas, tacos, tamales, tortillas and salsa, buyers will find new and trending food products.

In the wake of COVID-19, with food shortages, shipment delays and major disruptions in supply chains, access to vetted supplier sources is crucial for the food industry. “The online format provides a unique opportunity for buyers and exhibitors from various countries to connect in real time,” said General Manager Dayana Ramirez. “Our high- tech platform enables attendees to literally click with one another in an instant.”

Because it is a virtual show, USIF provides a cost-effective opportunity for exhibitors to build partnerships and expand markets. Exhibitors can stage live demos, and both exhibitors and buyers can schedule one-on-one or small group meetings using video conferencing capabilities.

Event sponsors include Sedano’s and Mounsier Papa. USIF admission is free for buyers; both buyers and exhibitors must register to participate. For more information, visit https://usifshow.com/.

On International Day of Yoga, Raksha Mantri exhorts people to practice Yoga regularly to keep body & mind healthy

Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh has exhorted the people to practice Yoga regularly as it helps to keep the body and mind healthy. He was virtually addressing a function organised by Isha Foundation of Shri Sadhguru on the occasion of International Day of Yoga on June 21, 2022. Throwing light on the benefits of the ancient Indian practice, the Raksha Mantri asserted that Yoga is not merely a good means of attaining physical fitness, but also a way to connect a person with himself by removing restlessness and confusion inherent in worldly existence. He said, the practice helps in controlling thoughts & emotions and training them in a positive direction.

Shri Rajnath Singh stressed that Yoga has touched newer heights of international recognition in the last few years and today it has become a new identity of India under the able guidance of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and through the active cooperation of the people. “Our Prime Minister had, while addressing the UN General Assembly, called upon the international community to celebrate Yoga Day. The adoption of this resolution by UN was certainly a big step towards the welfare of humanity. Yoga gained further recognition worldwide when, on December 01, 2016, it was included by UNESCO in the representative list of intangible cultural heritage of humanity,” he said.

The Raksha Mantri appreciated that work being done by Shri Sadhguru and the Isha Foundation to teach the people to live happier and more meaningful lives through yoga, besides inspiring them to address environmental problems. “India has been spreading world peace and similar humanistic ideas across many millennia. By giving the message of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’, India has not only considered the people living within its border as its family, but the people of the whole world as one. Sadhguru, by his work, has certainly brought to life the spirit of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ by connecting people from all over the world into one thread for creating a new environmental movement. He is enriching the material world through campaigns like ‘Save Soil’ as well as giving transcendental messages through spirituality,” he stated.

Shri Rajnath Singh expressed concern over degradation of environment, saying that the ecosystem of earth is built in such a way that the impact in a particular geographical area is not limited to that area only, it encompasses the whole world. “Carbon emission is an example in point. Even if it is happening in one country, it definitely affects all other countries. That is why all the summits, conferences, conventions and agreements regarding global environment protection, whether it is Rio summit, United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, Climate Change convention, Kyoto protocol or Paris convention, they guide all the countries of the world, in similar way to act in unison. As a responsible nation, India, guided by its tradition and culture, has continuously striven for soil conservation. Soil conservation cannot be done by focusing only on the soil. We have tried to conserve and increase all other components related to it, such as afforestation, wildlife, wetlands, etc. The solution of collective problems will be possible only through collective efforts. Therefore, it is necessary that we all try to protect the soil & environment and move together towards a better world,” he added.

The Raksha Mantri called for finding new technologies in the field of science and make innovations which will keep the eco-friendly values intact. “We should become companions of nature and have a sense of reverence and respect for the living beings as well as the inanimate elements of nature. I have full faith that gradually human civilisation will overcome the environmental problems of our times, and build a happy, prosperous, equitable and sustainable future for all of us,” he stated.

Shri Rajnath Singh termed the ‘Save Soil’ campaign as a ray of hope as it instills a belief that the people from all over the world, through this campaign, will contribute in maintaining the health of the soil in the times to come. He said, the campaign is not only an effort to protect soil, but to preserve human civilisation and culture.

On the occasion of 8th International Day of Yoga, PM participates in a Mass Yoga Demonstration at Mysore Palace ground, Mysuru

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi participated along with thousands of participants in a Mass Yoga Demonstration at Mysore Palace ground, Mysuru on the occasion of 8th International Day of Yoga (IDY) today. Governor of Karnataka, Shri Thawar Chand Gehlot, Chief Minister Shri Basavaraj Bommai, and Union Minister Shri Sarbananda Sonowal were among those present on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said the yogic energy, which has been nurtured for centuries by the spiritual centers of India like Mysuru, is today giving direction to global health. Today yoga is becoming a basis for global cooperation and is providing a belief of a healthy life to mankind, he added. He said that today we see that Yoga has come out of the households and has spread all over the world and this is a picture of spiritual realization, and that of natural and shared  human consciousness, especially in the last two years of an unprecedented pandemic. “Yoga has now become a global festival. Yoga is not only for any individual, but for the entire humanity. Therefore, this time the theme of International Day of Yoga is – Yoga for humanity”, he said. He thanked the United Nation and all the countries for taking this theme globally.

Quoting Indian sages the Prime Minister emphasized “Yoga brings peace for us. The peace from yoga is not merely for individuals. Yoga brings peace to our society. Yoga brings peace to our nations and the world. And, Yoga brings peace to our universe.”, he continued “This whole universe starts from our own body and soul. The universe starts from us. And, Yoga makes us conscious of everything within us and builds a sense of awareness”

The Prime Minister remarked that India is celebrating Yoga Day at a time when the country is celebrating its 75th year of independence, the Amrit Mahotsav. This widespread acceptance  of Yoga Day, The Prime Minister said,  is the acceptance of that Amrit spirit of India which gave energy to India’s freedom struggle. That is why Mass Yoga demonstrations are being organised at 75 iconic locations across the country which have been witness to the glorious history of India and have been the center of cultural energy. “The experience of collective yoga at the historical sites of India is  like tying together India’s past, India’s diversity, and India’s expansion”, he elaborated. He also informed about the novel programme ‘Guardian Yoga Ring’ which is a collaborative exercise between 79 countries and United Nations organisations along with Indian Missions abroad to illustrate Yoga’s unifying power that surpasses national boundaries. As the sun apparently moves from the east to the west across the world, the Mass Yoga Demonstrations in the participating countries, if seen from any one point on Earth, will seem to be happening one after the other, almost in tandem, thus underlining the concept of ‘One Sun, One earth’. “These practices of yoga are giving wonderful inspiration for health, balance and cooperation”, he added.

Shri Modi pointed out that Yoga is not just part of life for us, today, it has become a way of life. He said Yoga need not be limited to a particular time and location. He said “no matter how stressful we are, a few minutes of meditation relaxes us and increases our productivity. Therefore, we do not have to take yoga as an extra work. We also have to know yoga and we also have to live yoga. We also have to achieve yoga, we also have to adopt yoga. When we start living yoga, Yoga Day will become a medium for us not to do yoga, but to celebrate our health, happiness and peace.”

The Prime Minister said that today is the time to realize the infinite possibilities associated with yoga. Today our youth are coming in large numbers with new ideas in the field of yoga. He also informed about the Startup Yoga Challenge by the Ayush Ministry. The Prime Minister congratulated the winners of 2021 winners of ‘Prime Minister’s Awards for outstanding contribution for Promotion and Development of Yoga’.

Integrating the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav with celebrations of 8th IDY, Mass Yoga demonstrations are being organised at 75 iconic locations across the country under the leadership of 75 Union Ministers, along with the Yoga Demonstration by the Prime Minister at Mysore. The Yoga demonstrations are also being held by various educational, social, political, cultural, religious, corporate and other civil society organisations and will be attended by crores of people across the country. 

The Prime Minister’s Yoga programme at Mysuru is also part of the novel programme ‘Guardian Yoga Ring’ which is a collaborative exercise between 79 countries and United Nations organisations along with Indian Missions abroad to illustrate Yoga’s unifying power that surpasses National boundaries.

Since 2015, the International Day of Yoga (IDY) has been celebrated worldwide on 21st June every year. The theme for this year’s Yoga day is “Yoga for Humanity”. The theme portrays how Yoga served humanity in alleviating suffering during Covid Pandemic.

International Non-Profit Cyber Institute Named as an NGO Partner with United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

 The Cyber Institute has recently been assessed and approved as a United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Partner. USAID selectively partners with development organizations working to make sustainable changes in local communities and around the world. Taylor Vance of the Cyber Institute expressed that “this partnership helps our organization expand programs with USAID and connect with a growing community of experienced USAID partners.” USAID is working to mitigate the cybersecurity risks stemming from accelerated digital technology adoption. As reliance on digital technology expands within an ecosystem, so do the number of vulnerabilities, creating the conditions for a steep rise in cybercrime, data harvesting, targeting, and surveillance. Failing to mitigate these vulnerabilities poses material threats to critical USAID partner countries, which can destabilize the digital ecosystem as a whole, threatens USAID’s efforts to improve social and economic well-being, and can undermine partner country government legitimacy in the public eye.

The Cyber Institute’s Center for Cyber Risk Research and Policy and Center for Women and Minorities in the Cyber Workforce will contribute cybersecurity and workforce development programming and advisory support to USAID’s cyber initiatives. Cybersecurity is critical to both the programmatic and operational success of USAID assistance and USAID has announced it will be a key part of each phase of their program cycle. USAID has said, “it should be thought of as a core thread that runs through all aspects of USAID’s technology programs in order to ensure digital sustainability and resiliency as this will ultimately protect USAID investments and build the cyber resilience of partner countries.” The Cyber Institute will initially focus on programs in high conflict areas in Europe and Africa.
