Yakubu made the revelation on Wednesday at the 6th Annual National Conference of the Society for Leather Technologists and Chemists of Nigeria, which is being held in Zaria.

The chief executive, however, said that to achieve this, Nigerians should stop the consumption of animal skin.

According to him, Nigeria should ban the consumption of animal skin to ensure the development of a robust leather business.

“Nigeria’s leather exports are expected to generate over $1 billion in annual revenue by 2025, making it a cash cow in the non-oil sector of the economy,” he said. he declares.

Yakubu said Nigeria has maintained a reliable supply of leather products to European and Asian markets.

The DG cited the Nigeria Export Promotion Council’s Trade Performance Index as indicating that Italy and Spain receive over 71% of Nigeria’s total leather exports.

Yahaya argued that the “inappropriate” consumption of animal skins has led to the closure of most tanneries in the country.

“Many leather industries have been shut down, with less than 14 tanneries managing to exist at varying levels of operation.

“Several reasons have been identified and documented for the closure of tanneries, chief among them being the inappropriate consumption of animal skin which is the main raw material of the leather industry.

“Besides the economic indiscretion of having animal skin on our menu, you will agree with me that the health and environmental risks associated with the handling, processing and consumption of animal skin should worry about,” he said.

The chief executive said he would continue to engage key stakeholders in the crusade against the consumption of animal skins across Nigeria.

He however agreed that it would be a Herculean task to stop his use, but felt that with consultation and legislation this would be achieved.

“With consultation and legislation, this main raw material for the leather industry will be saved from our kitchen and redirected to a more productive leather business,” Yahaya said.

He urged leather technologists and chemists to join NILEST in the project to end the consumption of animal skin in the country, to harness its potential for the growth of the leather industry.

In his remarks, Dr. Pushaka Julius, National President of the Society, said they would work with the institute and other key stakeholders to fill the gaps to technologically transform the leather industry.

He said the world was moving towards high technology and conventional ways of doing things had changed, as such “Nigeria’s leather sector needs to adapt to global trends”.

Earlier, Dr. Danlami Elisha, chairman of the local organizing committee for the conference, said Nigeria was seventh in Africa on the list of hides and skins producing countries.

Elisha said the conference aimed to provide better ways to transform the Nigerian leather industry to boost incomes and employment.

Washington – After years of pressure and advice from PETA scientists, the US Department of Transportation (DOT) has ended its requirement for a painful test in which corrosive substances are smeared on rabbits’ sensitive skin. Now companies will no longer be required to use rabbits to determine if chemicals cause permanent skin damage.

DOT requires companies to test products for permanent skin damage to allow for safe handling in the event of an accidental spill during shipment. PETA successfully petitioned DOT to accept Corrositex, an animal-free skin test that works with most types of corrosive substances, nearly 30 years ago. Now with this update 2022 to DOT testing requirements, everything chemicals can be tested without using animals.

In a letter Informing PETA of the new rule, the agency said its decision would encourage companies to use animal-free testing. PETA will make sure every company is aware of this updated rule, including by publicizing a September 21 webinar hosted by the DOT to discuss the rule change.

“Animal-free skin corrosion testing is more relevant to protecting human health, and the DOT update brings the U.S. into line with other countries that have used non-animal methods safely for years. “says Dr. Amy Clippinger, executive director of the Regulatory Toxicology Department. “When PETA and regulatory agencies work together, it’s a win-win situation for everyone: we prevent animals from being killed in painful experiments and better protect humans.”

The rain lasted all night, forcing the dance party to a nearby barn. But the bride saw the unexpected downpour as a blessing.

“In earthly Judaism, there is so much emphasis on praying for rain,” said Adi Aboody, who married Ophir Haberer on June 4 at Green Valley Farm and Mill in Sebastopol, northern California. “If you took the logistical craziness out of it, it was magic.”

Aboody, 32, and Haberer, 31, are strong supporters of Land Judaism, a grassroots movement that seeks to center Jewish religious practice on the land. They met in 2015 through Wilderness Torah, the Bay Area organization that organizes festivals, camps and educational programs for this growing community of Earth-centered Jews.

They are at least the ninth couple to meet through Wilderness Torah, which was founded in 2007.

“Our immersive programs have the most unique community and village building technology, rituals and celebrations,” said Simcha Schwartz, director of development for Wilderness Torah, who met his wife during the Passover festival in the desert of the organization. “This recipe nurtures genuine connection and vulnerability, and therefore love.”

Aboody and Haberer imbued their marriage with Jewish and earthly values.

Next to the chuppah were two altars, one displaying pictures of their ancestors and the other laden with local fruits and flowers, challah and stalks of wheat in honor of the Shavuot harvest festival, which started the same day. As the groom prepared to meet the bride before the ceremony, several men sounded the shofars, a frequent Torah ritual in the desert.

In tribute to Haberer’s early childhood at Kibbutz Tzora in Israel, the couple wore flower crowns and dressed in all white. During the ceremony, led by a rabbinical student and mindfulness coach named Rebecca Schisler, the couple were wrapped in a tallit as a friend sang the priestly blessing and guests raised their hands to bless them. The night before, a lamb from a nearby farm had been cooked over a fire.

For many guests, this was their first experience of earthly Judaism and attention to detail – from the ketubah, or marriage contract, made from specially purchased animal skin (illustrated by an artist friend and written by another, both women), to know the farm on which the lamb had been raised—stood out.

“It wasn’t just us watching their love,” said Maytal Orevi, a friend of the bride’s family. “Although different worlds collided, they brought everyone in and invited us to slow down. We all need to be part of their world.

In 2016, after their first meeting, Aboody and Haberer both started working for Wilderness Torah and quickly became close friends. In addition to their love of the land, the two shared mixed Mizrahi and Ashkenazi heritages: Haberer’s mother is Moroccan-Israeli while his father is South African, and his family moved from Kibbutz Tzora to St. Louis when he was 5 years old. Aboody’s father is Iraqi-Israeli, and her mother, Cindy Paley, is a Yiddish singer; she grew up in the Los Angeles area.

They remained close even when they moved on to other work. Aboody now works as a doula, herbalist and outdoor educator, and Haberer is a permaculture consultant, in addition to leading groups for men interested in unpacking masculinity, as an initiative for Shalom Bayit, a domestic violence prevention organization, called “MenschUp”.

In 2021, they both reunited at a Wilderness Torah festival for Rosh Hashanah, sharing hopes for the new year in the same prayer circle.

“I was very clear that I wanted love, partnership and family,” Aboody said.

Haberer, sitting in the same circle and watching various young families wandering the park, realized that he did too.

“There was already this palpable tension there,” Aboody said, “like we realized if we wanted the same things at the same time…”

Three months later, Aboody was pregnant. Love, partnership and now family: what everyone had prayed for.

They decided to marry on Shavuot, the Jewish harvest festival that celebrates the “firstfruits” of the season, a particularly fitting occasion as they are expecting their first child.

This year, Shavuot began immediately after Shabbat. They signed the prenup on Friday afternoon, to avoid signing it on the holiday, and held a Kabbalat Shabbat prayer service on Friday evening.

The couple were wrapped in a tallit held by their families during the priestly blessing.  (Photo/JTA-Luna Munn Photography)

After the service, there was a henna party with song and dance, where some guests wore Moroccan caftans and the bride and groom had thick dabs of henna applied to their palms, to protect them from the evil eye. A Moroccan feast, much of it cooked by Haberer’s mother and aunts, was served.

Susan North Gilboa, a friend of the bride’s family, said as a more traditional Jew, she wondered about attending a wedding on Shavuot when, as with other holidays, there including on Shabbat, weddings are prohibited by Jewish law. But the Shavuot themes were woven “with such spirituality and genuine attention to tradition while bringing newness, that it felt so right to him.”

Although their romantic relationship has progressed rapidly, the couple see it as building on their six years of friendship. Haberer compared it to shmita, the biblical edict to let the land rest, or lie fallow, every seven years. This year happens to be a shmita year, which the couple considered particularly appropriate.

“We’ve had six years to get to know each other as friends and support each other in our different relationships,” Haberer said. “On the first day of the seventh year, the shmita year, we see ourselves resting in a romantic partnership. We love that we started the shmita year this way.

Is Activision trying to add animal-inspired Operators to Warzone?

On July 21, 2022, popular Call Of Duty insider “CharlieIntel” posted a photo with War zone and vanguard. The photo showed Carver Butcher, Ikenna Olowe and Callum Hendry alongside an unveiled wolf. However, it is difficult to differentiate this animal, since it represents both the image of a wolf and a dog.

Dive deeper: Call of Duty Warzone and Vanguard Season 4 are likely to please fans with a massive track record

Call Of Duty has added animals to its game before, as we’ve come across the iconic K-9 in most titles. But, the franchise never aimed to release an animal-like skin Operator, as it would never match the pre-existing ones.

Here’s what Charlie said in his last Tweeter, “ok btw it looks like there is a dog operator skin (maybe wolf?) coming to vanguard x warzone during season 4, shown in this artwork.”

This quickly caught the attention of all fans, as the image greatly confused them. Interestingly, some fans have also come up with a theory, claiming that Activision’s new skin inspired the popular DogeCoin. So, let’s take a look at how fans reacted to this information.
