After a heated confrontation with New York Post writer Steven Nelson, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki abruptly ended the conversation by informing him, “I believe we’re done!”
Psaki briefed reporters on Monday with a strict timetable in mind, which left her with just approximately 25 minutes to receive questions from reporters. Nelson, on the other hand, took three separate shots at the same issue, which concerned a Vanity Fair piece on Covid testing, as well as a follow-up inquiry regarding President Joe Biden’s visit to his house in Wilmington.

As Nelson began, he expressed surprise that “coronavirus testing for homes before Christmas” had not been brought up more frequently in the group. Nelson then referenced a VF report from October about a “Zoom meeting with administration officials” in which a proposal to “mass distribute coronavirus tests to homes before Christmas to prevent a winter surge of COVID 19 cases” had been floated, a plan that had been rejected at the time.
Nelson sought to know “which administration officials attended the October 22nd meeting” and “was President Biden personally informed at the time on that suggestion before it was passed over?” Nelson also wanted to know “which administration officials attended the October 22nd meeting.”
“Actually, it’s possible that people haven’t inquired about it because we’ve already done a lot of the things that were addressed at that meeting a couple of months ago, such as significantly extending our testing program and capacity,” Psaki said.
“And the concern at the time, which is a very tiny portion of the dialogue, was that the market had not developed enough to allow us to launch the website we’re launching tomorrow,” Psaki said.
The Covid team members who attended, according to Psaki, “regarded it as a really fruitful discussion, which means a good meeting, a lot of which we’ve tried to implement.”
Nelson attempted again, this time with the question, “How can President Biden shut down the virus if he isn’t, you know, informed on these ideas?” Nelson was unsuccessful. That is, after all, my question. So, I’m curious as to who the advisors were, and whether or not Biden was informed on this proposal at the time.”
Then Psaki snarked, saying, “I believe I just answered your question, to which you may not have been paying attention.” “Perhaps you were waiting to read your next question, which is great,” he said, before adding, “But I just answered your question.”

“Please allow me to continue,” Psaki shouted over Nelson’s complaints. Please allow me to finish, Steven. “Steven, I’m almost finished.”
In his explanation, Psaki said, “What I just said to you is that we do not have the capability at the present.” “We had a really productive meeting with this group,” says the facilitator. We all agreed that we needed to increase the amount of testing we could do. We did this in order to increase our testing capacity, and the president had previously utilized the Defense Production Act to make a $3 billion investment in the program. However, the market did not have the ability at that time to perform what we are planning to do in the future.”
Nelson attempted another time, but Psaki said, “I believe that answers your question.”
“Once again, I’ve provided an answer to your query. If you have any question, please let me know and I will gladly address it. If you don’t comply, I’ll go on to the next person,” Psaki continued after Nelson persisted in his refusal.
Psaki did not, in fact, respond to the specific issue that Nelson had posed, but she looked to be arguing that the facts she had presented made the question irrelevant in any case.
When Psaki criticized the concept of sending tests to people’s homes in America in December, Biden responded by telling ABC’s David Muir that he “wished I had thought about ordering” 500 million tests “two months earlier.”
“I’m unhappy that I wasn’t able to receive the answers I was looking for there, but I’ll go on to another,” Nelson said.
“Excellent,” Psaki said as Nelson went on.
‘The second issue is that, as President Biden’s first year comes to a conclusion, the data reveals that he spent about a quarter of his days, at least in part, in Delaware, which raises an interesting point. As a result of this. Will the White House rethink its decision not to reveal visitor log information from President Barack Obama’s Delaware residences?” Nelson was the one who inquired.

“In any case, the president travels to Delaware since it is his home state. It also serves as the burial ground for his son and his previous wife. In addition, it is a location that he clearly holds dear to his heart. “A lot of presidents go back to their hometowns when they are president,” Psaki said, perhaps in reaction to some other opponents who have expressed concern over the president’s travel. “A lot of presidents go back to their hometowns when they are president,” she said.
For the first time, the White House has made visitor records available to the public, going one step farther than the previous administration and many other administrations before it. “We’ll keep doing what we’re doing,” Psaki said.
Nelson attempted to continue, but Psaki interrupted him by stating, “Go ahead in the rear.” I believe we have completed our task and are ready to move on! “Go ahead and park in the rear.”

Billboard Music Awards 2022. The appearance of the red carpet
For gala performances, celebrities usually come up with unique looks. This year, on the red carpet, or rather the record, the Billboard Music Awards 2022 in Los Angeles
In addition to the strange, beautiful, crazy outfits, such as Kylie Jenner’s nude dress, there were also musical accents. American singer Mary Jay Blige, who was only part of the Superbowl’s half-time show in February, won the prestigious ICON Award from Janet Jackson. The music superstar then spoke about the true meaning of being an “icon” on stage – how hard he worked to achieve that status.
“As the world is now, I suspect people think icons are born overnight to become legends, but that is definitely not the case. It takes a lot of time to survive, hard work – a lot of willpower, but also trials and errors. “To achieve greatness,” he shared, adding later. “The message of my music has always been that we are not alone in our struggle, I am not alone. For so long I have been looking for the real, I was looking for love. “But I finally found my true love, և that true love is me.”
Another surprise came from Rockstar Machine Gun Kelly. When he took the stage before performing his hit “Twin Flame”, he dedicated the performance not only to his “wife” Megan Fox, but also to their “unborn child”. Which made the fans angry և to create speculations on the Internet that the couple may be pregnant և secretly married. Megan Fox, who appeared at the event in a vampire-like evening dress, was silent about her significant other hints.
Nigeria : une agence offre une formation à 50 personnes sur l’agriculture mécanisée abordable
L’Organisation pour l’alimentation et l’agriculture (FAO) estime que le secteur agricole nigérian a contribué à hauteur de 22,35 % au produit intérieur brut (PIB) du pays entre janvier et mars 2022.
Avec plus de 70% de la population nigériane engagée dans l’agriculture, l’industrie est facilement la plus importante pour la croissance du pays.
Cependant, les acteurs du secteur soulignent un certain nombre de problèmes qui continuent à entraver l’optimisation du secteur.
La question de la mécanisation de l’agriculture et de la hausse du coût des équipements agricoles, qui empêche de nombreux petits exploitants de contribuer à la production agricole du Nigeria, est l’une des plus urgentes.
C’est dans ce contexte que C Woermann Nigeria, en partenariat avec STIHL Allemagne, mène des initiatives de développement des capacités pour exposer les petits exploitants agricoles à une mécanisation abordable qui peut contribuer à réduire le coût des opérations agricoles.
S’exprimant lors d’une session de formation qui s’est déroulée à l’IITA d’Ibadan, M. Klaus Okunowski, directeur général de C Woermann Nigeria, a déclaré que l’entreprise est consciente que les agriculteurs nigérians ont un besoin urgent de soutien pour les aider à passer d’une agriculture de subsistance à des méthodes modernes qui amélioreront la productivité et la croissance des entreprises.
“Avec des équipements tels que la gamme STIHL 230 (motoculteurs, tarières, débroussailleuses, etc.), les agriculteurs peuvent économiser des coûts qui auraient été consacrés à l’embauche de main-d’œuvre agricole ou au remplacement de nombreuses pièces d’équipement, et ils auront plus de temps à consacrer à des activités productives, sans compter les économies réalisées”, a ajouté M. Okunoski.
Il a applaudi STIHL et l’Institut international d’agriculture tropicale (IITA) pour leur soutien à C Woermann.
Prenant également la parole, M. Debo Akande, responsable de l’agrobusiness et de la mécanisation à l’IITA d’Ibadan, a déclaré : “La science et les données nous ont montré que la mécanisation est l’avenir de l’agriculture et que la meilleure façon d’accroître l’adoption de la technologie agricole est de fournir des solutions de mécanisation abordables.”
L’expert, qui est également le conseiller exécutif du gouverneur de l’État d’Oyo pour l’agroalimentaire, a souligné la nécessité de programmes de renforcement des capacités pour soutenir la croissance du secteur.
Une agropreneuse et participante à l’événement, Mme Ogunleye Modupe, a abondé dans le même sens, affirmant que des formations comme celle-ci ont la capacité d’ouvrir les yeux des petits exploitants agricoles sur des leçons cruciales qui pourraient les aider à améliorer leur production agricole globale.
“Je pense que le gouvernement devrait s’associer au secteur privé pour former les agriculteurs à une mécanisation abordable afin d’améliorer le rendement”, a-t-elle ajouté.
De son côté, Mlle Onome Ayide, responsable du marketing chez C Woermann Nigeria, a déclaré : “Nous sommes conscients de l’importante lacune que le développement des capacités permettra de combler pour que le Nigeria réalise son potentiel agricole. Notre objectif est de continuer à équiper et à donner aux agriculteurs la formation et le soutien technique qui les aideront à se développer.”
Elle a également mentionné que le programme est l’un des nombreux programmes que la société mène avec ses partenaires pour aider les agro-entrepreneurs nigérians à réaliser leur plein potentiel et à soutenir les efforts de sécurité alimentaire du pays.
