Thanks, but IntenseDebate functions are outside of Quincy Journal functions and operations. :) BG

I'd take Biden any day over someone who says things so ridiculous that when satire sites like National Report does an article stating she was on Fox News saying that Mexicans need to get on the boat they came in on and go back home, it sounds 100% believable.

I'm certainly open to being proven wrong on that point. More importantly: I just got my first IntenseDebate email notification of a reply to a comment. New feature? Or does it just come through when QuincyJournal replies to a comment. Because it's great. Makes it easier to follow debates.

C'mon. People in these types of jobs move all of the time and their employers know their people are always going to be looking for the next rung up. Many universities give full disclosure of this process. It absolutely does not affect the quality of candidates. Sadly, it has always been the way business is done in Quincy. Kudos to John Wood for providing access to their candidates when they…

Absolutely. Imagine the number of highly qualified candidates who didn't want their current employers to know they were looking for a new opportunity. This is stupid. Don't worry Louisiana: next time you need to hire a president for LSU, you'll get a fraction of the the resumes. All from unemployed folks and internals. Because the President of some other school doesn't need you…

Eggs supply strong for Easter, Passover

9 months, 3 weeks ago From Illinoisagconnection.com

Although retail egg prices are historically high at $1.98 per dozen, consumers will find an adequate supply of the protein powerhouses to fill Easter baskets and for Passover meals, according to John Anderson, deputy chief economist at the American Farm Bureau Federation.

"Eggs remain a relatively low-cost source of protein at a time when other meat and dairy product prices are also up," Anderson said.

Recently, global demand for eggs has been very strong. In 2013, U.S. egg exports were up by 39 percent compared to the prior year. Much of the increase was due to an increase in exports to Mexico, which in addition to having strong consumer demand, has also had its domestic egg supply reduced by an avian influenza outbreak that began in early 2012.

"U.S. poultry farmers are working to catch up with the surge in demand. U.S. table egg production has increased in each of the past three years and is expected to increase by another 1.5 percent again this year. Demand remains strong, but exports to Mexico will begin to taper off as that country rebuilds its domestic poultry industry," Anderson concluded.

Top egg-producing states include Iowa, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Ohio, Indiana, Texas, Arkansas, California, North Carolina and Alabama.

AFBF tracks the average retail cost of 16 food items that can be used to prepare one or more meals through its Semi-Annual Marketbasket Survey.
