Chilean City Throws 3rd Annual "War of the Tomato" Festival
An estimated 7,000 people participate in the third annual "War of the Tomato" in the Chilean city of Quillon. Full story: Thousands of people "pasted" each other in the third annual "War of the Tomato" on Saturday in the Chilean city of Quillon. In a take on the famed tomato festival in Bunol, Spain, over 40 tons of tomatoes were used by the participants to lob at each other. [Paulina Escares, Participant]: "It helps one de-stress with family and friends. It's a very fun experience." An estimated 7 thousand people participated in the tomato fight. And there seemd to be plenty of ripe, red ammo available. Local tomato growers supplied the fruits of their labor for the event, for the purpose of raising their local crop's national profile. [Unidentified Participant]: "They weren't for sale anyway. It's not that we are throwing them out or wasting food. These are tomatoes that were never going to be sold, that are donated by the producers for this event in Quillon every year." While similar events have been held in Colombia, Costa Rica and the United States, Quillon mayor Alberto Gyhra said that Quillon is the only location in the Americas that has had the event for three years running. [Alberto Gyhra, Quillon Mayor]: "Outside the Iberian Peninsula, Quillon is the only town that has managed to have the tomato festival for three consecutive years. This year is much better than the last two, without a doubt." The event was first created by local man Miguel Pedreros and some friends, but this year they handed over responsibility of the event's organization to municipal authorities.

Brazilian Cities, Towns Declare State of Emergency after Severe Flood
A total of 12 cities and towns along the Uruguay River in Brazil's Rio Grande do Sul have recently declared state of emergency as a rare flood has been sweeping across many parts of the Southern America. The rare flood caused by continuous downpours has affected at least 1,800 households with more than 6,500 residents in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The water level of the Uruguay River, the state's boundary river, has risen to overflowing, flooding residents living in low-lying areas. The city of Uruguaiana is one of the worst affected cities as it is close to the river. "Many residents here live along the Uruguay River. Since the water level rose, many residents were swallowed by the water and they have been evacuated to temporary shelters," said Luiz Augusto Schneider, mayor of Uruguaiana. "Our memory of the catastrophic flood in July last year is still vivid, but the current one that hits the border region with Argentina and Uruguay is also one of the severest floods in the recent years," said Paulo Rosa Wouthers, staff member of Uruguaiana's bureau of civil defense. The water level in the low-lying Uruguaiana has risen by around 10.5 meters, inundating many houses and forcing residents to be evacuated "My house is very close to the place where the flood broke out. It's in the low-lying area. It is the first time that I have seen such a big flood, and it is also the first time that the water had poured into my home," said Uruguaiana resident Vanher Rebero. "I lost some belongings during the flood, although not all of them. Some facilities have been under repairs," said another local resident Felipe. The state has started reconstruction in the flood-hit area and residents have been evacuated to temporary shelters with daily necessities supplied. Meteorological authorities predicted that the state is likely to see more rains in the near future.

Portuguese/Nat Three days of torrential rains in Rio de Janeiro have left seven people dead and some two-thousand homeless. The city's mayor has declared a state of alert and said the city will need two (b) billion dollar for infrastructure repairs that would prevent new floods. The first summer rains followed soon after a lengthy heat wave and meteorologists have attributed them to the "El Nino" weather phenomenon. Over 600 tonnes of debris was collected after the three-day torrential rains pounded the city from Thursday to Saturday. Rivers and canals overflowed into the streets bringing the city's transport system to a halt. Members of the fire department evacuated families from low lying areas with inflatable rafts. The mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Paulo Conde, declared a state of alert. Those who were made homeless were sheltered in stadiums and schools across the city. Others were asked by the city's Civil Defence Bureau not to leave their homes. Although his home was still standing, one of the victims pointed reporters to a visible mark on the wall, showing the depth of the flooding. SOUNDBITE: (Portuguese) "Ah. it was a real mess here. Things ended up in an appalling state. I put my wife and kids up there in the roof, to save them. (points to water stain on wall). The water reached all the way here. I put a ladder there and took everyone up there. The things I left down here were all destroyed." SUPER CAPTION: Ademir Dias dos Santos, victim Meteorologists believe that the rains came as a result of the El Nino weather phenomenon. El Nino continues to wreak havoc across parts of Brazil and it has been the poorest members of society who have suffered the most. Their living conditions have proved to be totally unable to support such storms. Poorly constructed houses have collapsed all too easily in Rio's 'favelas' (slums). Euzi Ramos da Costa was devastated by the damage to her home. SOUNDBITE: (Portuguese) "I had never seen one (rain) like this. There had been floods here before but not that much. The last heavy flood here was in 1988, but I wasn't living here then. This is the first time I suffer such destruction. I lost everything." SUPER CAPTION: Euzi Ramos da Costa, victim Future budgeting for the city has increased substantially. The plan is to build adequate flood barriers should such rains hit the city again. These could cost up to two billion U-S dollar to construct. More bad weather has been forecast for the next few days. Just under 10 years ago in February 1988, 277 people died as a result of heavy rains.

Klaas Martens OGRAIN Presentation: Managing crop pests and diseases through practices not products
Klaas Martens, Mary-Howell Martens and son Peter farm 1,600 acres of certified organic crops in upstate New York, producing corn, soybeans, spelt, wheat, emmer, einkorn, rye, triticale, buckwheat, oats, barley, cabbage, dry beans, hay, and a wide range of cover crops. Both independent and university-coordinated on-farm organic research is a strong component of their farming operation, and they are frequent speakers and writers on organic agriculture. Even those experienced in organic techniques for crop and pest management are finding that weather extremes and other complexities can still cause problems. Klaas Martens will show how increasing biodiversity both in the field and the surrounding ecosystem build long-term resiliency resulting in healthy crop yields.
