Who's been sleeping in my bed?

Dunno, but there's an impression of a curled-up cat in my new memory form mattress  :hmm:

Greece plans to bring back origin labels on dairy

Greece's rural development and food ministry has said it plans to re-introduce mandatory origin labelling for milk and dairy products sold in the country.

Greece had scrapped origin labelling of dairy products when liberalising its controls after the introduction of the EU 1169/2011 regulation on food labelling. However, Athens claims the move and its 2013 extension of fresh milk shelf life has led to uncontrolled imports of cheap milk. Deputy agriculture minister Markos Bolaris told Athens radio yesterday that, by early 2016, milk prices had dropped so low milk producers "were thinking of even culling their animals". Bolaris added: We had reached the point of destruction of the Greek milk farming industry."

"We had reached the point of destruction of the Greek milk farming industry." So EU 1169/2011 worked as the troika intended?

Revealed: MRSA variant found in British pork at Asda and Sainsbury's
Tests find UK-produced pork products infected with the livestock strain of the superbug, with potentially serious implications for human health

Meat produced from British pigs has been shown to be infected with a livestock strain of MRSA, the Guardian can reveal, raising concerns that the UK is on the brink of another food scandal.

The Guardian... has also established that a loophole in import regulations is leaving an open door for MRSA CC398-infected live pigs from countries such as Denmark, where the disease is rife.

Thanks, Tony. SourceForge is (or was) a great place for developers of free software but last year they got a bit naughty and started adding PUPs, causing a great fuss in the process. Since May this year SourceForge now scans all projects for malware and displays warnings on downloads


The original link is clean according to all 68 scan engines used by VirusTotal:

Thanks Maik. Presumably Norton is not up to date.  And helpful to know about SF.  As you've posted before there are precious few clean download sites these days.

True, though the link is to a webpage. Here's a sample from the Corporate Bullshit Generator:

•The resources accelerate our talent retention. Our time-honored philosophy facilitates levers 50/50. The platform expediently standardizes high-definition, controlled and high-powered interpersonal skills.
•We continue to work tirelessly and diligently to incentivize cost efficiencies across and beyond the spheres. The systematized strategic staircase straightforwardly delivers maximum impact using contents, while culture and implementation strategically drive the policy makers. The clients iterate a parallel core competency.
•The full-scale informationalization seamlessly transfers customer-facing business cases. Our engagement interactively leverages microsegments.
•A well-crafted business equation enables the clients, while the niches synergize the partners on a transitional basis. Synergy, edge and blended approach empower an unique ROE. There is no alternative to value proposition. The key to business philosophy is structure. A lever synergizes interactive, executive-level, unified and agile plans. Our options influence the sales manager. The white-collar workforce formulates measures. Pockets of opportunities generate a coordinated, future-oriented, well-defined and above-average on-boarding process as a consequence of a significant expansion. The framework globally empowers collaborations.
•The key to implementation is strategic staircase. As a result, the integrations champion pre-prepares a flexible design philosophy. Our executive talent operationalizes our enhanced data capture up-front. A market environment empowers a thought leadership. The Acting Head of Facilities Management consistently addresses best-of-breed risk/return profiles; this is why the big picture enables the white-collar workers. Consumer-facing, core, markets empower the stakeholders over the long term, while cornerstone and learning strengthen the stakeholders in the core. The clients culturally achieve platforms. The key to visual thinking is trend. Business case and pipeline interact with our solution-oriented strategy formulations in this space, whilst asset is all about collaborations. A goal-oriented and/or heart-of-the-business serviceability promotes our emotional intelligence using responsible onboarding solutions.

God, this takes me back.  I used to work for an American company, briefly I am glad to say. and all the corporate drivel used to read exactly like these examples.  Me and a friend of mine used to make up similar BS and we were criticised for not being on board message wise and our ongoing advancement matrix was likely to be negativised.  I got the message and gave them a succinct answer middle finger erectwise.
