Oakland Breaks 11YearOld Record for November Imports

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license The Port of Oakland had its busiest November ever for imports in 2018, shattering an 11-year-old record. The port said that it handled the equivalent of 83,364 loaded 20-foot import containers last month. That beat the old November record of 76,902 containers set in 2007.November imports were up 15 percent over the same period in 2017, a rise which was attributed to the increase in cargo volume due to continued strong U.S. consumer spending.The port added that importers are rushing cargo into the U.S. in case new tariffs are imposed next year as part of the trade war with China.“We’re encouraged by our latest cargo statistics,” said John Driscoll, Port of Oakland Maritime Director.“At the same time, we remain cautious as we approach the new year with uncertainty.”The port’s total volume, including imports, exports and empty containers, was up 5 percent in the first 11 months of 2018. If the trend continues, Oakland is expected to set a new cargo volume record for the third straight year.last_img read more

Montreals famous StViateur bagel shop still rolling 60 years later

first_imgMONTREAL – Ask any Montrealer and they’ll tell you: the bagels taste different here.Chewy, sesame-rolled and slightly sweet, Montreal bagels have become internationally famous — and as Joe Morena would say, it may be better not to mess with a recipe for success.Morena’s store, St-Viateur bagel, celebrated 60 years of bagel-making with a block party in Montreal’s Mile End neighbourhood on Sunday, complete with music, games and, of course, bagels.As on any other day, dozens of people at a time lined up outside the bakery to buy hot bagels, fresh out of the oven and served in brown paper bags.While Montrealers will dispute which shop makes the best bagels in town (some are fiercely loyal to Fairmount bagel a few streets over), most agree it’s the distinctive baking process that gives the city’s bagels their taste.“Since day one we’ve always made the bagels the same way — hand-rolled, boiled in honey water, dipped in sesame and baked in a wood-burning oven,” Morena said.Since he started working at St-Viateur in 1962, Morena says he’s rolled bagels for Leonard Cohen, Celine Dion and William Shatner, among others.He became an owner in 1974, and his three sons have since joined him in the business, which has grown to eight locations in the Montreal area including several cafes.They also have an online site that ships bagels across North America.The formula is also spreading in other ways, as a number of Montreal-style bagel shops have been cropping up in other cities — many run by former employees.Irfan Khan, who co-owns a shop in Toronto, said he learned his craft working at a number of Montreal bagel shops including St-Viateur.His Bagel Time shop on Danforth Ave. features a custom-made wood-burning oven, and his bagels are made following the Montreal formula — down to the exact amount of honey in the water, he said.He said many ex-Montrealers have been showing up since he opened three weeks ago, excited for a taste of home.“If you miss anything in the recipe, you can’t get the same taste,” he said in a phone interview.One city that still does thing differently is New York City, whose citizens still prefer a larger, softer style.But when asked to comment on the long-standing rivalry, Moreno stays diplomatic.“They’re used to eating those big fluffy bagels that I don’t consider a bagel,” he said. “But they like their bagels, so who am I (to judge)?last_img read more
