On a Thursday afternoon, under the scorching sun, hundreds of farmers were lined up in Kigali’s suburb, Mulindi, known to be a junction of cheap fresh food from different parts of the country.

Energetic and enthusiastic, they got down to business selling fresh from-the-garden foods. Among them was Charles Mwizerwa.  He isn’t a farmer. He is an innovator who had showed up to present different solutions to the challenges Rwanda’s agricultural sector has faced for ages.

An agronomist and researcher at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA),  Mwizerwa talked about an application called ICT4BXW, which, he said, has helped smallholder farmers across Rwanda combat banana disease.

“Over 8,000 smallholder farmers have downloaded the app, and they teach others about the information they find there. The ICT4BXW is an ICT-based tool with information in Kinyarwanda that acts like an early warning system that provides real-time data on the incidence of Banana Xanthomonas Wilt disease," Mwizerwa explained.

He added that farmers who do not own a smart phone can call 845 toll-free and learn about banana farming and how to fight diseases.

“This will increase food security in the country. About 20,000 farmers have used the platform,” he said.

Morris Haragirimana, another innovator, has gone in a different direction.  He has developed a solar powered irrigation system which he sells to farmers in his home area in Bugesera at Rwf 60,000 (US$59).

"This drastically reduces the cost of production for farmers. It has made irrigation possible in some remote areas where the electricity grid has not yet reached. This system is durable and farmers who buy it no longer need to worry about electricity or fuel bills. It is environment friendly and requires little maintenance," Haragirimana said.

But these are only are only a small representation of what is happening behind the curtains in the struggle to feed 12 million in this predominantly agricultural country, where 72 per cent of the working population is employed in agriculture.

Big on beans, bananas

Largely a subsistence agricultural country --- much like the rest of the East African Community --- there’s now talk of a “silent agricultural revolution” taking place in Rwanda.

Every first Friday of August, Rwandans gather in their communities to celebrate the National Harvest Day, “Umuganura” — meaning “thanksgiving day”. It is a centuries-old practice and the food communally shared on a large flat basket remains the same and reflects on Rwanda’s food production.

The food mostly includes beans, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, corn, greens, cassava, and sorghum cake—the most productive crops in Rwanda, according to FAO.

Rwanda, ranked the highest in bean consumption per capita globally, with an average local consuming 34.8 kilogramme, is followed by neighbouring Burundi, where an average person consumes 31.5 kilogrammes of beans. The country also consumes a lot of banana, which is grown at different levels by at least 90 per cent of households, according to International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA).

Rwanda is ranked the second largest consumer of banana in the world, with an average Rwandan consumes about 227 kilogrammes of banana per year, according to the Helgi Library which utilises data from the FAO Corporate Statistical Database (FAOSTAT) .

Although 75 per cent of Rwanda’s agricultural produce comes from smallholder farmers, the sector employs about 70 per cent of the population and contributes to around 30 per cent of the country’s GDP.

In addition to the challenges of climate change and the fact that 90 percent of Rwanda’s terrain is sloppy, which makes it prone to soil erosion and land degradation, the UN reports that 81.3 per cent of the country’s population is food secure.

However, Rwanda’s food production is only a drop in the ocean of what the East African region produces, although production still varies.

Tanzania, for instance, produces more than 80 percent of the total rice production in EAC, with the rest of the members supplying 20 percent, according to the Regional Agricultural Investment Plan (RAIP).

Take Uganda as well, where 89 per cent of the population is food secure. The FAO describes its population as still having normal access to food from own production; food prices in the market are affordable; they have an “acceptable food consumption score”, and can afford at least three meals per day of a diversified diet.

But contrast in Kenya, 36.5 per cent of the population is food insecure. Kenyan farmers whose crops depend on rain are becoming increasingly vulnerable to drought and the unpredictability of weather patterns resulting from climate change, but this is a shared problem.

The Hunger Frontline

Nevertheless, agriculture accounts for 65 per cent of the country’s export earnings, and provides employment for more than 80 per cent of the Kenyan population.

Although Rwanda’s population is generally food secure, the 2021 Global Hunger Index ranks Rwanda 98th out of the 116 countries with a score of 26.4. “Rwanda has a level of hunger that is serious,” the report reads, an outlook compounded by data that shows that stunting has been a persistent issue in the country, despite efforts to eradicate, or at least reduce, it.

The UN estimates that 800,000 Rwandan children under 5 are stunted. Although the rates of chronic malnutrition among children under 5 years decreased from 44 per cent to 38 per cent, rates are still too high. 18 per cent of children between 6-8 months are stunted, and 49 percent for children aged 18-23 months are stunted, and children in rural areas are more stunted than those in the city.

Part of the reasons for stunting in Rwanda is the poverty rate, where more than 30 per cent of the population is under the poverty line. Farming, perhaps unsurprisingly, has become one of the frontlines in the battle against poverty and hunger.

One of the high profile figures in this fight is the renowned Gerard Sina, 59, who has created more than 280 full-time jobs and 600 part-time jobs in Rulindo District where he was born.

Sina, who started his business when he was only 20 years old, has also built a school in his home area, with nursery to secondary sections, where students study for free, even those in boarding school.

His successful career started from his parents’ sweet potatoes harvest of 1983, whose puree Sina used to make his famous Urwibutso doughnuts, kick-starting his success and the transformation of the area where he was born.

Today, he works with more than 3,000 farming families. Sina, a farmer himself, also offers free seeds, fertiliser, training, and buys crops when ready for harvest. His flagship, “Akabanga”, a chilli pepper oil, has gained attention for himself and the country, and is probably one of the most well-known Rwandan products globally.

Getting seeds right

Many pieces have been moved to solve the Rwandan agricultural puzzle. One of them is seeds. After years of spending millions of dollars on seed imports, Rwanda says it has reached its target of becoming a self-sufficient in seeds supply. It is no longer importing maize, soybean, and wheat seeds.

Before 2017, it depended on imports to meet its need of these seeds, bringing 3,000 tons of hybrid maize seed, 800 tons of wheat and 700 tons of soybean every year. Well up to 463,500 farmers now have access to improved seed.

One of the many who helped move the pieces is the pan-African agricultural organisation the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA).

In 2009, AGRA through a grant, supported Rwandan maize farmers with the first hybrid seeds and, later, partnered with the Rwanda Agricultural Board (RAB) in capacity-building of local seed companies under a project named “Securing Early Generation Seed for Emerging Seed Industry in Rwanda.”

Before then, the country relied on imports.

One of the beneficiaries of the programme is Norah Kamashaza, 36. She has two farms in the Eastern province; one in Bugesera and another in Nyagatare, but she also rents out land to grow maize.

Now, she has a significant market in the Eastern province, and sometimes also sells her produce through the government-owned “smart nkunganire” platform, where dealers search for stock and buy at a wholesale price.

At the time of this interview, Kamashaza was at the Special Economic Zone at the factory where they clean and treat her maize before selling it.

“The corn that you see here got harvested this last season. Some got rejected, but what we have here that is certified is 53 tons. It will be transported from here after they finish all the packaging, and distributed,” Kamashaza said.

Previously, Kamashaza was making a profit of Rwf 200,000 (US$195) per season, but now makes Rwf 4million (US$ 3,908), a massive improvement in her fortunes from more advanced methods of farming, and better quality seeds.

“It has changed due to the experience I got and a lot of training that was given to us by the lab as well as the support we got from AGRA. I gained a lot of knowledge and then started producing four tons that we were adding to the hectare because I would apply new techniques that I was taught, and started to grow maize in a better way,” Kamashaza said.

She has also increased the number of people she employs. “When I first started, I had one permanent employee and a few casual labourers; about 20 of them, that would help work in the field when it was time for planting or weeding. But now, at this level, I have 5 permanent employees and more than 300 casual labourers per season.”

Although it is strewn with good stories, Rwanda’s agriculture sector faces many challenges. The reality of behind the postcard of the celebrated “land of a thousand hills” is a mountainous terrain that other East African countries, barring Burundi, doesn’t have to contend with. It’s prone to high levels of soil erosion and land degradation. Other major hurdles are land constraints due to population pressure. Rwanda is the smallest country in the EAC, and one of the most densely populated in Africa. The average population density is estimated at 274.6 people per square kilometre. It also has weak processing capacity for agricultural produce.

Racing against the odds

It has been in a frantic race against the odds. Several policies and initiatives have been developed, such as the Forest Planting Season and “Umuganda” (community work), where more than 25 million trees were planted during the 2020/21 forest planting season.

In 2019, the National Agriculture Insurance Scheme, where farmers are cushioned against losses caused by disease and accidents, was launched.

The scheme also enables farmers to more easily access financial services and ensure flow of credit to the agriculture sector that was once overlooked by financial institutions.

At a UN Food Systems pre-summit last year, President Paul Kagame said that Africa's food markets are often fragmented, and links to food processing and value addition services are sometimes lacking.

"Africa's food producers do not earn the level of income that they deserve, and they must cope with high level of economic risk and uncertainty," said.

The experts agree. For this to change, the African farmer must be the central theme of all innovations and investments in agriculture.

It is how the continent will end its dangerous over-reliance on food imports, that has dramatically been illustrated by the disruption of wheat grain flows by the Russia-Ukraine war, end malnutrition, and create the desperately critical new jobs needed in the food economy.

Which sun protection shirt for women is best?

Summertime is for hiking, beach days, weekends at the lake, backyard pool parties and countless other activities spent in the sun. You are outdoors more often than any other time of the year, and more sun exposure means your skin is more at risk for sun damage. Sticking to the recommended 2-hour sunscreen reapply schedule can be difficult, and not all clothing material will protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. No matter the time of the year, sun shirts are a convenient and reliable way to protect your skin from sun damage.

What are sun shirts?

Sun-protective shirts absorb or block UV radiation from reaching your skin, making sun shirts a simple and effective way to shield your skin. The Skin Cancer Foundation measures sun-protective shirts by the Ultraviolet Protection Factor, which indicates how much ultraviolet A and ultraviolet B radiation a fabric allows to reach your skin. To be recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation a shirt must contain a UPF rate of 30, but a sun shirt with a UPF rate of 50 or more is considered the most effective form of sun protection. 

What makes clothing sun safe?

Not all clothes will protect your skin from the sun. However, dark and bright colors made with tight-knit material will block and absorb UV rays before they can cause harm to your skin. In addition, looking for shirts with UPF labels will deliver you a variety of good options for summertime temperatures that are guaranteed to keep covered skin safe all year round.

Coolibar UPF 50+ Women's Ariel Reversible Pool Hat

Wearing a sun-safe shirt means less skin exposure to the sun, less sunscreen, less of a mess and more time for fun in the sun. Expanding your closet to include sun shirts will protect your upper body from UVA and UVB light, whereas SPF will only protect you from UVB. For extra protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays, pair a sun-protective top with a fully lined crown hat to protect your face and scalp.

SALISBURY, N.C., July 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Food Lion, in partnership with its customers, helped to provide more than 16 million meals* to fight child hunger through its third annual Summers Without Hunger campaign. Nearly 22 million children count on school-provided meals, but less than 17% have access to summer meal programs.

Killexams : Geomagnetic storm caused by a ‘coronal hole’ on the sun possible: How it will impact Earth

Posted:

Updated:

(NEXSTAR) – A “coronal hole” in the sun’s atmosphere could trigger a geomagnetic storm, the effects of which may be felt on Earth on Wednesday, according to the Space Weather Prediction Center.

In an image of the sun shared with Nexstar, the disturbance on the sun’s surface is visible in the bottom right quadrant. There’s another, more defined spot on the sun’s left side.

An image shared with Nexstar shows the coronal hole on the sun on Aug. 3, 2022. (Photo: GOES-16 via Space Weather Prediction Center, NOAA)

These coronal holes “appear dark because they are cooler, less dense regions than the surrounding plasma and are regions of open, unipolar magnetic fields,” NOAA explains. “This open, magnetic field line structure allows the solar wind to escape more readily into space, resulting in streams of relatively fast solar wind.”

While some headlines make the occurrence sound like a doomsday-inducing hole in the sun, Rob Steenburgh of NOAA’s Space Weather Forecast office told Nexstar, “They happen all the time and are no cause for alarm.”

This type of disturbance can lead to mild or even moderate geomagnetic storms, Steenburgh said. A minor geomagnetic storm may cause weak fluctuations in the power grid, impact satellite operations on spacecraft, and make aurora displays in the sky visible at high latitudes, like in parts of Michigan and Maine.

Strong geomagnetic storms can cause power blackouts, radio issues and problems with satellite navigation – but that’s nothing like what we’re expecting to see Wednesday.

There are no active warnings related to space weather.

Killexams : Tired of feeling trapped by food rules? Consider intuitive eating

Intuitive eating is a self-care eating framework created by dieticians Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch.

Article content

Allison Warga, a Calgary mother of three, felt like she had tried every diet on the planet. Between rushing around with work and her children, she wouldn’t notice her hunger until sitting down – often at dinnertime. That led to nights of constant grazing that never really satisfied.

“It’s very easy as a mom to forget yourself when you’re raised in a diet culture and are told you need to lose weight. You want to ignore you even have a need to eat,” she admits.

But after studying the book Health at Every Size by Lindo Bacon, an inspired Warga sought out a dietician and began working on gentle nutrition strategies that didn’t trigger the disordered eating that comes from dieting. The upshot was a mental and emotional catharsis.

“I felt like I left a cult and its whole religious dogma behind. I learned self-care, that I deserve to eat and that my body needs nutrition. That’s all part of taking care of yourself.”

Warga had tapped into intuitive eating.

Intuitive eating is a self-care eating framework created by dieticians Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch. It’s a highly personal process that involves 10 principles that range from rejecting diet mentality to honouring your hunger to challenging the food police.

To date, several research studies have noted the positive health benefits of eating in an intuitive manner, which integrates instinct, emotion and rational thought. Benefits include lower cholesterol, higher self-esteem, improved body image and lower rates of disordered eating.

Vincci Tsui, a registered dietician and certified intuitive eating counsellor in Calgary, observes that much of our eating is based on external cues.

“We make decisions based on many factors such as Canada’s food guide, how much of something is in a bag, or that it’s lunchtime, instead of listening to our own internal cues. Intuitive eating is about letting go of food rules and taking away the guilt. Unless you stole the food, you shouldn’t feel guilty about eating it.”

One of the biggest myths surrounding intuitive eating is that in the absence of any food rules, a person would naturally eat copious amounts of whatever they wanted. That’s not the case, says Christine Devaney, registered dietitian and certified intuitive eating counsellor at Health Stand Nutrition Consulting Inc.

“You may feel like you have no control over a certain food and that could be because you’ve labelled it as junk. The more we allow ourselves unconditional permission to enjoy all foods, the less intense the cravings and desires will be. It results in more control and freedom around all foods.”

Tsui is also sympathetic to fears of trusting one’s instincts, especially among those who’ve been chronic dieters their entire life.

“Intuitive eating is about letting go of this idea of having to control your weight or eating in a certain way in order to be healthy or seen as worthy. It’s about getting back to what does satisfaction and well-being mean to you. It’s liberating and at the same time scary.”

If having a more peaceful relationship with food and your body sounds good to you or if you’re tired of counting and cutting calories, intuitive eating might be the path to set you free.

Intuitive eating isn’t a restrictive regime. Its 10 principles provide structure, but they’re not hard and fast rules. Think of it more as a guide towards finding your inner voice and wisdom.

For Warga, the biggest benefit, beyond freedom from intense cravings, was no longer being afraid to eat.

“Eating breakfast and taking the time to pack lunch is what I choose as self-care time. In whatever time you have available, you can be thoughtful and present with your body.”

To begin eating intuitively, Devaney first recommends taking stock of your eating behaviours and attitudes, ideally without judgment.

“Before eating, ask yourself if you’re experiencing physical or emotional hunger. Reflect on some of the reasons why you eat the way that you do. Notice which factors influence your feelings regarding your body size,” she advises.

By tuning into how food makes us feel, how much we appreciate the taste and at what point we’re satiated, we’re better able to control the amount of food we consume. But make no mistake, intuitive eating is not about weight loss.

“There’s a fear that you’ll gain weight. And you might. You could also lose weight or stay the same. The key is figuring out what’s worse for you – living with disordered eating or living with a few extra pounds,” notes Warga.
