Oregons flooded recreational pot market a cautionary tale economists

first_imgVANCOUVER – As marijuana farmers in Oregon say a flood of supply is killing their businesses less than three years after recreational cannabis was legalized, economists say it’s a warning to Canada.Stephen Easton, professor of economics at Simon Fraser University and senior fellow at the Fraser Institute, says large fluctuations in price and supply are bound to happen when you create a legal market where an illegal market already exists.“There is no reason to think it won’t happen here as well. In a broader sense, we are adding legal production to an already robust illegal production,” Easton said.“Consumption may simply not increase in proportion to our ability to grow.”Robin Cordell, owner and grower at Oregon Girl Cannabis Company, said she saw the influx of supply coming on social media that would choke out her farm.“I saw just massive fields planted on Instagram, just huge acres and I just knew that was going to be the result,” she said in an interview.While she once sold her pot to a wholesaler for $2,200US per pound, she said that dipped to $600 per pound.Cordell said she’s planning to pull the plug entirely on recreational pot and focus on medical marijuana and hemp products until new markets open up across the country.“I think I am going to actually give up my licence and wait for nationwide legalization to happen, just because the market is terrible,” Cordell said.Oregon’s inventory of marijuana is staggering for a state its size. There are nearly 450,000 kilograms of usable flower in the system, and an additional 159,000 kilograms of marijuana extracts, edibles and tinctures.The Oregon Liquor Control Commission, which regulates the industry, said some of the inventory of flower goes into extracts, oils and tinctures, which have increased in popularity, but the agency can’t say how much.Yet the retail price for a gram of pot has fallen about 50 per cent since 2015, from $14 to $7, says a report by the Oregon Office of Economic Analysis.Commission spokesman Mark Pettinger said the agency still doesn’t have complete information about demand, but a comprehensive market study is underway that will be released in January.He said about half of the 2,014 producer applications received have been granted in a process that has typically taken between two and six months.“It’s a free market and the legislature did not provide us with any authority to limit licences,” he said, “so that’s probably an issue the legislature will need to take up during the 2019 legislative session.”The regulatory framework emerging in Canada already looks a little different.There are 104 licensed marijuana producers in Canada, including 57 in Ontario and 22 in British Columbia.As of May 11, Health Canada had received 1,974 applications from producers and had refused 268, while others were in progress, incomplete or withdrawn. The entire application process takes more than a year to complete.Under the federal government’s proposed approach to cannabis, regulations would not prescribe a limit on the amount of cannabis a producer cultivates under a standard licence.“However, the Minister of Health could establish a production limit as a condition of the licence if there were reasonable grounds to believe that a licensee was producing more cannabis than this licensee was able to sell, and that the excess inventory was at risk of being diverted to an illegal market or activity,” a November 2017 consultation paper by Health Canada says.Werner Antweiler, professor of economics at the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business, said market fluctuations will depend on whether the government restricts licensing and prices.If left up to the free market, prices can drop to almost nothing, temporarily, he said. The market typically corrects itself over time, with smaller-scale producers that have higher production costs exiting the market and larger-scale producers being able to survive the roller-coaster because they work in economies of scale.“If you want to prevent prices from dropping dramatically, there can be regulations in place that maintain a minimum price of some sort. That’s easier to do if the distribution channel is regulated,” Antweiler said.But he said price controls can backfire.“That said, the danger is then, if prices are regulated and we have players trying to sneak around them and provide their product illegally at a lower price, that could lead to an undermining of the idea of liberalization, which is getting the market into the legal domain and preventing an illicit market from surfacing,” he said.“It’s much better to get it right from the beginning,” he said, and decline to licence more producers than the estimated demand can support.One Canadian producer says he’s not too worried about being pushed out of the market the way producers are in Oregon.“I think it’s a function of a far more relaxed regime,” said Dan Sutton, CEO of Tantalus Labs based in Maple Ridge, B.C. “Right out of the gate, you’ve got a far more sophisticated production regulation regime, which inherently applies a barrier to entry.”Tantalus Labs is a small-batch producer, which grows unique strains and only harvests about 100 plants at a time, he said.Sutton is counting on recreational consumers to pay more for a higher quality product, which could mean unique strains, cannabis with a “farm to table” story or organic cannabis that has been meticulously cared for.“In Oregon, while there are massive over-supplies of commodity-grade quick and easily grown cannabis, there are still cannabis products that sell for $15 or $20 a gram at the dispensary level,” Sutton said.“All cannabis is not the same.”— with a file from The Associated Presslast_img read more

Colombian Congress Ratifies New Peace Deal

Rabat – Colombia’s Congress has approved a revised peace accord to end the 50-year conflict between the government and the Farc rebel group.The lower house ratified the pact a day after it was endorsed by the Senate.The deal aims to end an armed conflict that has killed more than 260,000 people over five decades. The first peace deal was rejected in a referendum, but the revised version does not require a popular vote.President Juan Manuel Santos welcomed what he called “landmark backing” for a start to the process by which thousands of Farc fighters will leave jungle camps and lay down their arms.The rebels are due to move to transition zones over the next six months, hand in their weapons and form a political party.The army will move into former Farc-controlled territory to prevent drug traffickers from taking it over.Both sides reached a peace agreement earlier this year after four years of talks in the Cuban capital, Havana. read more

Visa OneCard scam was a Brute Force attack by fraudsters –

…new security measures may block some online activitiesRepublic Bank (Guyana) Limited has conclude that the recent breach to its Visa OneCard service as a “Brute-Force attack”, which is a trial-and-error- method used by fraudsters to obtain, within seconds, payment information such as account numbers, card expiration dates and security codes.This Brute-Force attack is what resulted in many local customers becoming victims of theft, as they discovered monies missing from their accounts.The Bank, in a statement Friday, explained that once this data is obtained by the fraudsters, they attempt numerous transactions at online merchants globally. “While many of these attempts failed, some were also authorised resulting in those customers’ accounts being debited,” the regional financial institution explained.Going forward, Republic Bank in collaboration with VISA implemented additional authorising measures which might result in some legitimate online transactions being blocked.The Bank is advising that customers who experience difficulty in attempting online transactions using their VISA OneCard to contact Customer Support using the following numbers: 1-800-271-4725 or 1-868-625-1200.According to the Bank, efforts are being made to obtain a toll-free number in the shortest possible time frame.In the meantime, Republic Bank says it is working with affected customers to detect which online purchases were unauthorised, in a bid to issue refunds.“We continue to reimburse sums proven to have been fraudulently withdrawn. To this end, we encourage customers who suspect fraudulent transactions to their accounts to visit their nearest branch to confirm and validate their transactions,” the Bank said.Only recently, Central Bank Governor Dr Gobind Ganga made it clear that all customers affected by the Republic Bank Visa Card scam must be refunded in full.“That is something that we wouldn’t tolerate. If there is a fraud, it doesn’t matter how long that fraud is dated back. Republic Bank or any bank would have to ensure that the customers receive his/her appropriate refund,” Dr Ganga told reporters earlier in the week.The Guyana Times understands that some customers have already received their refunds in full.Meanwhile, the Central Bank Governor said he would also be meeting with the management of the Bank to ensure the situation does not occur again, or if it does, better mechanisms would be put in place to deal with the issue.“We will be working with the commercial banks to ensure that the Guyanese public are afforded the opportunity to transact business almost risk-free,” Dr Ganga noted.Additionally, Republic Bank is urging customers to remain vigilant in monitoring their account activities.Moreover, the Bank, in its statement, sincerely apologised for this temporary inconvenience. According to Republic Bank, it is seeking “your continued understanding as we work towards a permanent solution with the safety and security of our valued customers being foremost in those considerations”.

Special needs school for Bartica

Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), more so its township Bartica, is slated to house the hinterland’s first special education needs school.According to the Department of Public Information (DPI), recently delivering the announcement was Regional Chairman Gordon Bradford, who explained that the institute will be outfitted with dormitories. These dorms will cater to children with special needs living in the hinterland, remote and riverine communities.It was noted that the move to establish such a facility in the hinterland demonstrates the Government’s commitment to providing equitable and inclusive education across Guyana. The Ministry of Education, in its mandate, aims to eliminate illiteracy, modernise education, and strengthen tolerance.Access to education is a basic need and right and the Region 7 administration, working with the Ministry, has taken its commitment seriously and has so far built two new schools this year, with another three under various degrees of construction.Additionally, in Waramadong, at the newly-renamed DC Caesar Fox Secondary, a new science laboratory will be constructed for the students.This school currently houses students from several catchment areas including Waramadong, Paruima and Kamarang.Bids for the special education needs school were at the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB) attracting an engineer’s estimate of $25.9 million.For this year, Region Seven has a capital allocation of $448.6 million, which will be used for developmental projects throughout Upper, Middle and Lower Mazaruni.

Sirius Minerals Vertical Shaft Sinking Machine reaches over 115 m depth at

first_imgTo construct the initial 120 m of the 360 m deep MTS shaft at Woodsmith polyhalite mine as efficiently, expediently and safely as possible, the company and its contractors deployed specialised, innovative equipment for the first time ever in the UK.The application of the Vertical Shaft Sinking Machine (VSM) technology – developed by leading mechanised tunnelling equipment manufacturer Herrenknecht – enabled the sinking of the shafts through near-surface water aquifers, due to the fact that the machine is designed to work underwater with a shaft lining being lowered behind.Typically, shaft lining would be created from pre-cast concrete segments but, in conjunction with contractors Careys Civil Engineering and Joseph Gallagher Ltd, Sirius utilised a new ‘slip form’ technique to pour the concrete lining. Using this technique, by continuously pouring the shaft walls simultaneously with the VSM’s excavation activity, the team was able to line the shaft more safely, rapidly and cost-effectively. Cutting-edge 3D, 4D and virtual reality (VR) modelling technologies were also used to digitally construct the shaft, forecasting a range of possible outcomes for each aspect of the construction process.The machine reached a depth of 115.2 m in May 2019, setting a new world record for this type of excavation in the process – the previous record was 84 m – Sirius said this is a “testament to the groundbreaking, innovative approach that we have taken to construct our project.”last_img read more

Innovative battery technology to power Western Australian garnet producer

first_imgWA-based Advanced Energy Resources (AER) has commenced construction of its 3.5 MW wind, solar and battery project to supply WA garnet producer GMA Garnet’s Port Gregory wet plant operations, 40 km south of Kalbarri.The project will use various innovations including a world first back-to-back microgrid inverter topology and refurbished Enercon wind turbines.Due for commissioning in late 2019, AER will build, own and operate the project which includes a 2.5 MW wind farm, a 1MW solar farm and 2 MW/0.5 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS). The site is located in one of WA’s weakest sections of electricity network being 120 km from the Geraldton substation, at the northern extent of WA’s South-West Interconnected System.Once commissioned, the project will be WA’s first hybrid wind, solar and battery project. The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) will provide $3 million in funding to Advanced Energy Resources as part of its Advancing Renewables Program to commercially trial the back-to- back inverter technology. The technology will dramatically increase the penetration of renewable energy in microgrids located in weak, fringe of grid areas and increase reliability of supply for electricity users.“The funding will provide a commercial demonstration of the technology which could have widespread opportunity for implementation in various settings. This commercial implementation of the back to back inverter topology will be a world first and will facilitate increased penetration of renewable energy in microgrid settings, in particular fringe of grid areas with weak electricity networks. By decoupling the renewable energy generators and load from the electricity network, and locating these within a standalone microgrid, the impact of variable renewable energy generation on the electricity network is dramatically reduced.”The BESS will allow up to 100% penetration of renewable energy and uninterrupted power supply capability during network outages and has been designed to provide on- demand network support if required by the network operator.The use of refurbished turbines will be an Australian first. The project’s five Enercon E40 turbines were decommissioned in northern Germany as part of a wind farm repowering project.AER decommissioned and transported the turbines and subsequently undertook an intensive refurbishment process of the wind turbines’ blades and mechanical and electrical components. AER will undertake and manage all recommissioning of the turbines including assembly, commissioning and ongoing operations and maintenance.AER Managing Director Luca Castelli said: “This project showcases a number of innovative approaches toward delivering reliable, low cost renewable energy to large energy users. By thinking outside the box, and with ARENA’s support, we have been able to commercialise a new approach to energy storage and renewable energy project delivery which will change the way that renewable energy generators are delivered in weak, fringe of grid areas and by customers who are unable to commit to long term power purchase agreements.”last_img read more

Inception Mining appoints Honduras contractor for Clavo Rico crushing

first_imgInception Mining says its Honduran subcontractor, Equipos, Desarrollos, e Inversiones S de RL (EDI), has moved onsite to its Clavo Rico gold project, in Honduras, and expects a start up of its crushing circuit no later than October 30.EDI says it has already begun various operations within the mine site such as road expansion, run-of-mill processing, open-pit maintenance, and tailings removal from the leach pad to the holding pad, putting it in line for the start up.The Clavo Rico gold project features a heap leach facility and on-site ADR plant.The Honduran contractor has a successful track record in both iron ore mines as well as precious metals operations, providing a full complement of services, according to Inception.At Clavo Rico it will excavate, haul, and crush ore to the predetermined size, using US-made equipment. This equipment is of a newer and larger calibre than previously installed, Inception said, and should easily handle the expected 750-1,000 t/d (with a crushing capacity to 2,000 t/d of ore required to meet Inception’s production requirements.“The per tonne cost is significantly lower, and the quality equipment and fewer breakdowns should increase recovery percentages with consistent crushing size,” the company said.Trent D’Ambrosio, CEO of Inception, said: “Awarding the contract to EDI will give the company the capacity to continue our expansion and increase total tonnage to an expected 230,000 tons/y.This expected increase will exceed the 2017 (90,356 tons) and 2018 (91,931 tons) rates and will provide a more consistent crushing size, with the potential to increase recovery.”last_img read more

Analysis What can we expect from Liverpool this season

first_img Source: beIN Sport via YoutubeSo, plenty for Brendan Rodgers to mull over on the eve of a new season. But he’ll relish it. They may not go as close to the championship as they did last term but with a Champions League adventure to contend with again, there are plenty of reasons for Liverpool fans to feel optimistic.Analysis: More questions than answers for Van Gaal as certain United players impressAnalysis: What 3-4-3 means for Manchester United this season Source: beIN Sport via YoutubeJust before Lovren plays the pass, Coutinho has a quick look to see where Sturridge is and, more importantly, where he’s heading. He’s been afforded some space and with Dortmund playing such a high line, he knows exactly what it will take to unlock their defence. Source: beIN Sport via YoutubeLovren’s pass has plenty of pace on it – Coutinho carefully flicks it through, knowing Sturridge is already on his way in behind the Dortmund defence. The striker does the rest. big problem for Rodgers is accommodating Coutinho in the starting XI. Though he might be named on the flank of a top-three, he won’t play there. He’ll drop deep and feature, surely at Rodgers’ request, between the lines. So, how do Sturridge, Sterling, Lallana and Coutinho fit in the same team. 4-2-3-1 is an option though he could also play in a midfield three.One other bonus during the Dortmund clash was Coutinho’s goal. Again, it came from him being positioned close to goal, picking out the space and demanding to receive the ball (where have we seen that before?) while his was a composed finish. Last season, defenders looked more uneasy than ever when faced with Suarez. Perhaps it had to do with his incredible run of form or his boundless energy when closing down and harassing. Whatever the reason, it became a pretty impressive offensive tactic. Under pressure at the back, Liverpool could thump a long ball forward and it was never in vain. Suarez would chase it down and, sometimes, his presence was enough to put defenders off., there’s the individual brilliance that came to define his final campaign at Anfield. Goals against Norwich and West Brom in particular stand out. The contrast between both goals says much too. The former is an instinctive lob from far out, displaying the extravagance, explosiveness and arrogance that Suarez possesses. Source: TehMaca – Minecraft – Gaming videos!/YouTubeThe other is more Suarez-like. Close to goal and fronting up defenders, he evades tackles quickly through a combination of pace and close control, throws in a little bit of impudence for good measure and then effortlessly glides the ball to the net. Source: combo luke/YouTubeFormation change?Going by Liverpool’s recent friendly against Borussia Dortmund, Brendan Rodgers is keen to retain the 4-3-3 he played regularly last year. In many ways, it makes more sense than it did then. Having Suarez and Sturridge playing so well together, the formation ensured one of them always drifted wide, away from their natural zone.With the addition of Adam Lallana in the summer window, Liverpool gain a player comfortable in playing on the outside of a top-three – doing it superbly for Southampton. His greatest strength is his movement and he enjoyed an immensely fruitful relationship with Rickie Lambert, constantly looking for space and usually finding it. It’s probably one of the key reasons why Rodgers decided to bring him to Anfield – his ability to find gaps picks up from where Suarez left off and with a play-maker, Philippe Countinho (more on  him later) set to play a key role within the team this season, having a quick, intelligent top-three is imperative. Against Tottenham, he made a lovely arced run to sprint forward on Lambert’s shoulder and race past him before picking up the through-ball and tucking it away to the bottom corner. Source: MadridusfanTV via YoutubeThey’ve also got Raheem Sterling who stepped up to the plate and delivered magnificently throughout last term. Straight away, there’s a solid balance to the Liverpool setup. And with Lallana and Sterling scoring nine times in the league last season, Rodgers won’t be too concerned.  He’ll hope that both can add a couple more and look for a substantial goal-scoring improvement from Coutinho and Henderson too. Even still though, it’s hard to see Gerrard (13) and Skrtel (7) having such prolific campaigns again. But, the addition of Lambert gives Liverpool more attacking options. Rickie Lambert will give Rodgers options this season – exactly what the manager wants. Source: Martin Rickett/PA Wire/Press Association ImagesThough many would consider him a traditional centre-forward, he proved at Southampton that he was clever in possession and not just a physical presence that relentlessly attacked lofted crosses into the area. He regularly drifted wide at St. Mary’s, with Jay Rodriguez the main striker. For Rodgers, that’s a nice bonus. Lambert can play in any of the three attacking positions while, if Liverpool are chasing a game, he can step up alongside Sturridge, with Sterling as a possible number 10 tucked in behind.The Coutinho conundrumFollowing Liverpool’s 4-0 demolition of Borussia Dortmund last Sunday, Rodgers was full of praise for the Brazilian play-maker.I really see him, over the next four or five years, being a big force in world football, both for Brazil and Liverpool. He’s an incredible operator, just magical to watch and he’s the kind of player that supporters come to see. We’re very glad to have him. His ability to get out of tight situations and his view of the game is incredible.That’s his best position – playing between the lines, he doesn’t get marked. He drops to the back of midfield, he draws defenders out, and the weight of his passes is phenomenal. He was outstanding, and what he’s added to his game is that relentless pressing. He’s very strong under pressure on the ball, and puts pressure on the opposition when he’s not on the ball.”Against Dortmund, he was named on the left of the top three. But he never played there. He came inside and occupied a central role, an area he prefers and where he can exert more influence. Early on Sterling was wide left, Sturridge through the middle and Coutinho dropped deep, close to the centre-circle. But, Liverpool’s opening goal came from his deftness and awareness – characteristics that Rodgers will desperately want to rely on as much as possible. THE BIGGEST QUESTION for Liverpool this season is whether they can adequately replace Luis Suarez. Individually, it’s an impossibility.But Brendan Rodgers’ hope is that the amount of goals the Uruguayan scored (31) and the assists (12) he contributed can be accounted for elsewhere. Rodgers has brought in a litany of reinforcements – three of them from Southampton. Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren will expect to walk straight into the starting XI though Rickie Lambert may have to wait a little longer for first-team opportunities. Rodgers’ forked out £20million to bring in Lazar Markovic from Benfica and he won’t be satisfied with an impact substitute’s role. But, what Rodgers is assembling is a flexible unit. One that can easily drop into a variety of systems and one that also has healthy competition for places.This season is a different animal. There’s a level of expectation but also the stress of elite European competition. Rodgers needs all the players and all the permutations he can get. But he does have a number of basic issues to address.How do you solve a problem like Suarez? Last season, the attacker was unplayable. His dynamic with Daniel Sturridge was well-documented but the huge issue for Liverpool going forward is just how unique a performer he was. For the most part, Suarez played as an individual. The majority of his goals were self-manufactured with him using his quickness of thought, his poacher qualities and his impeccable finishing to terrorise defences (usually Norwich’s). Suarez was such an individual that it’s impossible for Brendan Rodgers to find a like-for-like replacement. Source: David Davies/PA Wire/Press Association ImagesYes, there was a terrific partnership with Sturridge but, though Suarez was usually selected in a wide area of a front-three, he played through the middle consistently.  Even though he was part of a lethal ‘two-man strikeforce’, Suarez dictated things. Even in his first game of last term against Sunderland, his opening goal was striking for the way in which he told Sturridge where to play him the ball. Sturridge has his own strengths and excelled when having to play without Suarez for the first few games of last season. But, it will be intriguing to see if Sturridge can instill a similar ruthlessness and arrogance in his game, especially when having to take on such a daunting goal-scoring burden. Source: Keelan Byrne via YoutubeThere are three other elements to Suarez’s game that Liverpool will certainly miss. His movement, his individuality and his ability to force defenders into committing mistakes. His awareness ensured he was a constant nightmare for defenders. Always looking for gaps to exploit or space to run into, he had the intelligence and speed to not just acknowledge a potential opportunity but to get in the right position at the right time. A goal against Cardiff last season perfectly encapsulates that, as well as Sturridge’s vision. Suarez has a look at the way the Cardiff defence is set up. He can spot the space behind Sturridge and can see his strike-partner is the wrong-side of his man, on his way to making a run towards the near post. But, at this moment, just as Johnson is about to cross, there’s only one Liverpool player in the area. Cardiff will feel they’ve got the situation under control. Source: Keelan Byrne via YoutubeBut in an instant, everything changes. Sturridge is picked out at the near post but Suarez has lost Medel and has found the space. All he needs now is for Sturridge to find him. Source: Keelan Byrne via YoutubeAnd Sturridge does. A perfectly-weighted back-heel right into Suarez’s path and he thumps it low to the net.last_img read more
