Walgreens To Sell Their Own Brand Of Beer For Under $.50/Can

Walgreens To Sell Their Own Brand Of Beer For Under $.50/Can: "


If its decision to start selling groceries wasn't enough of a sign that Walgreens is trying to shake up its image and reach a new audience, now comes news that the drugstore chain has begun selling its own private-label beer.



According to the Chicago Tribune, Walgreens has been rolling out the beer, called Big Flats 1901, in more than 4,600 of its 7,655 U.S. locations.



Since private-label booze is rarely purchased because of superior taste, Walgreens is selling the suds cheap, around $3 for a six-pack and around $11.50 for a case of 24 cans.



'In this tough economy, consumers are looking for value and ways to make their money go (further),' a Walgreens rep told the Tribune. 'Big Flats 1901 offers our customers a premium lager at a great price.'



In case you're curious, Big Flats 1901 (which won't win any awards for its name) is made by Winery Exchange, which also provides private-label adult beverages for Costco Wholesale and Trader Joe's.

Mysterious killing of fish in coastal

Leonardo Coleto

Leaf Coastal
Fishermen have found at least 100 tonnes, mainly sardines.

A survey conducted by the Federation of Fishermen's Colony of Paraná, Paranaguá on the coast of the state, indicates that at least 100 tons of fish (sardine, croaker and catfish) have turned up dead since last Thursday off the coast of Parana.

On Sunday, representatives from the Environmental Institute of Paraná (IAP), the Secretary of State for the Environment and Water Resources (SEMA), took samples to verify the reason for the deaths. The report will be released today.

The president of the Federation of Fishermen's Colony of Parana, Edmir Manoel Ferreira, reports that between Paranaguá and Guaraqueçaba at least 2,800 fishermen depend on the daily seafood.

"On Thursday we began to realize very dead fish. Only one community came to bury 15 tons. We are experiencing a very sad situation on the coast, "reports.

Apart from Paranagua, Ferreira said the dead fish are starting to appear in other coastal towns. "The dead fish are going to Antonina, and Guaraqueçaba Pontal do Paraná. We need an urgent solution to this, "he warns.

Captain Edson Oliveira Avila, regional coordinator of Civil Defense in the Paraná region, believes there are three hypotheses for the death of fish. "We will wait to see what happened, but speculations suggest that fish may have died due to an environmental imbalance, dropping a fishing boat or leakage of chemicals," he says.

Through his press office, the city of Paranagua said the sale of seafood is a precaution, temporarily suspended in the region.

"It is not forbidden, but we have oriented people do not purchase or consume these products to avoid any problems. There is no indication that someone has gone bad, "said Avila.

The issue was discussed yesterday in a meeting involving the city of Paranaguá, IAP, Brazilian Institute of Environment and Natural Resources (IBAMA) and the Civil Defense of Parana.

Reportedly, the IAP said it will only give a ruling today, after the result of the award. The samples were sent to the Centre for Marine Studies (CEM), Universidade Federal do Paraná (UFPR).

Income

The whole situation worries the fishing community of coastal Paraná. "I urge the authorities to look for these workers from the sea. Not just in Paranagua, but throughout our state. When a disaster such sufferers is the fisherman. We can not let that happen ", says Ferreira.

UK. Dead fish discovered in canal marina near Abergavenny

Sunday, 02 January 2011


Environment Agency Wales can confirm that what could be hundreds of dead fish, mostly bream, carp and roach, have been found in the marina on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal at Goytre Wharf near Abergavenny earlier today.

A 30cm drop in the water level at the marina by work upstream could be a contributory factor, but more than likely the cold weather, ice and lack of oxygen are to blame.

Initial investigations reveal there is no pollution detectable but no conclusion has been drawn as officers continue their work.

Smaller fish have, however, been found alive in the marina.

Officers are advising people that no attempts should be made to remove or go near to any fish at this stage.
