2019 has been a tough year for recovered fiber markets, and recyclers have been more focused

2019 has been a tough year for recovered fiber markets, and recyclers have been more focused on movement than price. It’s been the best of times for containerboard producers and the worst of times for recyclers and material recovery facilities (MRFs) trying to sell recovered fiber in 2019. “It all depends who you’re asking,” says a broker in the Midwest. “Mills would say it’s the best time—they have the best pick right now. If you’re talking about a processor, these are some rough times because fixed costs in some cases and operating costs are exceeding revenue.” Old corrugated containers (OCC) prices experienced a long, slow slide downward from $105.84 per ton in November 2017 to a low point of $25 per ton in June 2019. Mixed paper prices declined sharply in the fall of 2017 and into the beginning of 2018. Since the middle of 2018, mixed paper prices have remained near $0 per ton. For containerboard mills, low secondary fiber prices have had positive effects on their bottom lines. “From a mill perspective, the decline starting in 2018 and continuing through 2019 has brought very good returns to the containerboard side of the business,” a national mill operator says. He adds th...

Best Dutch ovens in 2020: Le Creuset, Lodge, Milo and Staub

A Dutch oven, a term often interchangeably used with French oven or cocotte, is a staple in the kitchen. If you’re not familiar with these pots, they typically feature thick walls and a tight-fitting lid (unlike casserole dishes) with a single handle, loop handles, or a knob, and most are made from cast iron or enameled cast iron. This essential piece of cookware can be used on a stovetop or in the oven and are a favorite vehicle for baking, browning or braising meat or cooking food like casseroles, soups and stews.  These kitchen necessities are incredible — you can accomplish almost any cooking task in a Dutch oven. They’re truly one of the most versatile pots you can own, and a lot of home cooks will tell you it’s their favorite cookware tool. Folks get rather attached to these durable items, likely because a good Dutch oven from an expert producer like Le Creuset or Marquette Castings will let you cook food for decades, if not longer. If you’re in the market for your first Dutch oven or are replacing/upgrading your current model, here are a few of the best Dutch ovens in various styles and price ranges to buy: Read more: Our favorite direct-to-c...

In 2019, with one killer track, an artist could become a household name, sparking infinite conversations

In 2019, with one killer track, an artist could become a household name, sparking infinite conversations and even more memes. In addition to all the new names, established artists like Lana Del Rey and Vampire Weekend redefined themselves and reset the trajectories of their careers. Visionaries like FKA twigs, Angel Olsen, and Charli XCX took their art to new heights. At the end of one year, and looking ahead to the next decade, here are the tracks we believe will stand the test of time. Shawn Mendes seems beamed in from a pop era before face tattoos and pink hair and cursing: Last year, when the Canadian heartthrob revealed he liked to—gasp!—smoke weed, his squealing army of fans was appalled, with one of them advising him to “think about going to rehab because we cant lose u like this. u are going to overdose and die.” But amid his chart peers’ rampant insolence, the 21-year-old’s tangy white funk slices through like a double rainbow. Take “If I Can’t Have You,” a sparkling single propelled by gargantuan Elton John piano chords and a glorious descending vocal line that should squeeze stress sweat out of Justin Timberlake. On paper, Mendes is pining after the girl who got away ...

Tom Marvins’s 2019 gear of the year | Top 5 mountain bike products of the year

As 2019 draws to a close, it’s time for me to take a retrospective look back at what’s changed my riding world this year. 2019 has been a rather busy one for me, with plenty of bike and kit testing for BikeRadar and MBUK. As usual, mountain bikes have featured very heavily, but my focus towards the end of the year shifted from mostly trail and enduro riding to the more Lycra-clad world of XC and marathon – all I can say is that it’s good to mix things up from time to time. Alongside all the testing and reviewing, I’ve also been working on the BikeRadar podcast, so I might as well plug it here too! There’s plenty of MTB and road content, as well as interviews and tech features to get stuck into as you wait for the Christmas turkey (or nut roast) to cook. While we’ve posted our review yet, I rode the Synthesis wheels for the first half of the year on my MBUK long-term Specialized Stumpjumper EVO. The wheels are built with a stiffer rear wheel for snappy handling and responsiveness, and a softer front wheel for grip and comfort. While differences in wheels can be fairly subtle, I do think there’s something in the approach. I fitted the wheels shortly before racing an EWS qualifier....

Wack 100 Compares T.I. to 6ix9ine for Tip’s 2007 Gun Case

On Tuesday (Dec. 3), Blueface’s manager hopped on his Instagram page to address T.I., who seemingly used an Instagram post to address Wack’s controversial assertion that Nipsey Hussle is not a “legend.” In a retalliatory IG post, Wack shares a dated PSA commercial starring Tip, who provides information for a crime tip hotline. In the caption, Wack compares T.I. to incarcerated rapper 6ix9ine, who famously testified against his former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods associates. He writes, in all caps, “BEFORE THERE WAS A 69 there was a TI-#ALEGEND @troubleman31 YOU GOT MY LINE…. IM NOT TO BE PLAYED WITH MIND YA BIDNESS …. WACK GIVES NO FUCKS I AM NOT A RAPPER #YA65395 #J49170 #West

China Law Blog | Page 2 of 501 | China Law Blog | China Law for Business

One of our oldest and most cherished traditions is to write about China scams at the end of every year. We do this because history shows this is the biggest month for them. It would seem that the scammers increase their activities at the end of the year, hoping to be less noticed/less examined due to the usual end of the season rush.  I was reminded of this tradition after reading my emails this morning and getting hit with what look like a couple new fraud matters. I do have to give the scammers credit in that the diversity and ingenuity and number of scams is way up as well. 1.  “The come to China to celebrate our deal scam”  In this scam an alleged Chinese company emails a foreign company to express a desire to buy a few million dollars of the foreign company’s product or service. The terms of the deal are quickly (too quickly!) resolved and the Chinese company suggests the foreign company come to China to sign the contract and celebrate the great cooperation and friendship the two parties have established. The foreigner(s) gets to China (usually some really out of the way city in China) and is “treated” to a super expensive meal at which the contract will be signed. After mu...
