RIO DE JANEIRO， March 25 (Xinhua) -- Brazilian President Michel Temer defended his country's meat on Friday amid scandal， saying "it is the best in the world."
In a ceremony to mark the opening of new home under the government's housing program， the president said Brazilian meat was "not weak" in an allusion to "Weak Flesh，" the name of the Federal Police operation to uncover the scheme.
"Brazil's meat is not weak. It is the best in the world，" he said.
Brazil is having difficulties in exporting its meat products following a scandal involving several meatpacking companies accused of adulterating expired food and paying hefty bribes to government inspectors to turn a blind eye.
Uproar has erupted after the fallout， as some of the companies accused are part of the largest processed meat brands in Brazil. The European Union and some other countries suspended imports of all Brazilian meat.
Temer also said the losses suffered by the sector are being mitigated， thanks to the quick action of a government team handling the issue， including Agriculture Minister Blairo Maggi and Foreign Relations Minister Aloysio Nunes.

SAN FRANCISCO http://www.lionsrookiestore.com/Lions-S … in-Jersey/ , June 9 (Xinhua) -- New research at Stanford University indicates that big ideas are getting harder and harder to find, and innovations have become increasingly massive and costly endeavors.
According to Nicholas Bloom, a senior fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) and co-author of a paper, so many game-changing inventions have appeared since World War II that it's become increasingly difficult to come up with the next big idea.
And as a result http://www.lionsrookiestore.com/Lions-R … er-Jersey/ , tremendous continual increases in research and development (R&D) will be needed to sustain even today's low rate of economic growth.
"The thought now of somebody inventing something as revolutionary as the locomotive on their own is inconceivable," Bloom was quoted as saying in a recent news release from SIEPR.
"It's certainly true if you go back one- or two hundred years, like when Edison invented the light bulb. It's a massive piece of technology and one guy basically invented it. But while we think of Steve Jobs and the iPhone, it was a team of dozens of people who created the iPhone."
Bloom worked with SIEPR senior fellow Chad Jones http://www.lionsrookiestore.com/Lions-Q … gs-Jersey/ , Stanford doctoral candidate Michael Webb, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor John Van Reenen as co-authors to examine research productivity at an aggregate national level as well as within three swaths of industry: technology, medical research and agr.
