New Mexico posing quarantine to stop pecan weevil bug

The Washingon Times + 58 other

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico agriculture officials are issuing a quarantine in hopes of stopping the spread of an invasive bug threatening the state’s pecan industry. The New Mexico Department of Agriculture says an emergency pecan weevil quarantine will take effect Monday and last for 180 days. No pecan shipments from Chaves, Curry, Eddy and Lea counties will be permitted. Meanwhile, the agency is also working with pest control companies to remove the weevil from residential and commercial trees. In late 2016, and January of this year, the weevil was found in pecan orchards in multiple counties in southeast New Mexico. Pecan producers worry the quarantine could prevent them from trading to the west where New Mexico’s $180 million pecan industry is most lucrative.

Tesla's Semi and Roadster impress, but 'production hell' raises doubts about follow-through

Los Angeles Times + 4 other

Elon Musk’s reveal of Tesla Inc.’s electric Semi truck and Roadster sports car Thursday night helped push Tesla’s stock up nearly 4% early Friday, but some analysts remained skeptical of the company’s ability to deliver on its promises. Heading into Thursday’s event, Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne said, many investors hoped to hear about the electric automaker’s ability to emerge from the “production hell” delays engulfing its Model 3 compact sedan. But Thursday’s event “offered no new nuggets of information to ease these investor concerns,” Osborne said. “In fact, [it] raised more questions …

New York Post + 2 other

But even those meager gains quickly gave away in after-hours trades as Stitch Fix shares fell below its already-lowered $15 initial public offering price. The…

CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - An electrical fire inside a ventilation fan is believed to have fed a Thursday fire that destroyed a northeast Mississippi factory.
