AM Radio in Electric Vehicles and U.S. Beef Exports Hit All-Time High
**Representative Josh Gotthemier urged electric vehicle manufacturers to include AM radio in their cars and trucks.
The New Jersey Democrat says, "If Elon Musk has enough money to buy Twitter and send rockets to space, he can afford to include AM radio in his Teslas."
He says despite the public safety uses of AM radio, many EV manufacturers have stopped including AM radio in their vehicles.
AM radio is the backbone of America's National Public Warning System.
**Global beef exports have hit an all-time record for volume and value, adding more value to U.S. beef cattle and providing markets for products not currently used in this country.
According to www.agrimarketing.com, those international markets for beef variety meats boosted exports by 15% in 2022 compared to 2021.
The top eight importers of U.S. beef include South Korea, China/Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines, Singapore, Colombia, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.
**For the second time in four months, the FDA cleared cell-cultured chicken as safe to eat, an important step in bringing the food, grown in fermentation vats rather than from livestock, closer to the retail market.
www.agriculture.com reports, backers say cell-cultured meat, like the plant-based proteins now on the market, are a cruelty-free and environmentally preferable alternative to massive livestock farms and slaughterhouses.
The meat industry calls it fake meat.
