    Bullshit Hipster Bike Videos
    April 8, 2016 Feel Good Video

    ​It’s nice to see a motorcycle video set in the desert that doesn’t involve a bunch of flannel enthusiasts dancing around a campfire and painful banjo music. As a limp wristed tarmac rider, watching stuff like this makes my brain melt. Enjoy.​​​​​​

    Is There a Market for Goat Meat in the US? Yes, There Is!

    — Written By JM Luginbuhl
    Although the current US market picture is disjointed and confusing, there is large and an unfilled demand for goat meat in the major cities of the United States, and especially in the population centers of the Eastern seaboard. This increase in demand is linked to a growing segment of the population of North Carolina and the Eastern USA which represents ethnic groups who prefer goat meat in their diet.

    Since 1991, the United States is a net importer of goat meat. In 2014, 43,188 million pounds of goat meat were imported for a total value of $94.7 million, compared to 2,994 million pounds in 1990 for a total value of $1.9 million. The price per pound of imported carcass increased dramatically from $1.50 in 2009 to $2.17 in 2010 and peaked at $2.61 in 2011, then decreased to $2.28, $2.15 and $2.19, respectively, during the last 3 years. With the exception of 5 years, over 90% of the carcasses were imported from Australia. That trend has ranged from 96.1 to 98.3% during the last 9 years.

    Goat meat imports

    As mentioned, the demand for goat meat is ethnic based. Nevertheless, there is an emerging demand for goat meat as a gourmet item. Some producers and savvy entrepreneurs market goat meat directly to consumers and upscale restaurants, and are getting a price premium for their products, compared to retail prices at the processing plant.

    Kauai has some of or the most expensive electricity in America and I'd recently read that Australia is about par with us.

    we've really just started getting serious about renewable energy sources recently, Australia is sooo much bigger it's going to be a large expensive project for them.

    The Australian Energy Market Commission 2017 Electricity Price Trends Report states that the average annual electricity bill across Australia for the current year is up $100 from the previous year to $1576, with an average charge of 34.41 cents per kilowatt-hour – an average increase of 4 cents from the previous year.
