hi I'm Carl azuz first topic today on
CNN ten concerns chicken eggs and soap
three items available right now at
practically any grocery store in America
but much harder to come by and afford in
a country just 90 miles from US soil
Cuba has a food shortage the Caribbean
nations communist government has put
what it calls regulations which are
rations on meats and cleaning products
the reason there are fewer of them on
the island and the government says it's
trying to make sure what is available is
distributed equally Cuba imports
two-thirds of its food from other
countries and its economy has been
heavily influenced by what happens
abroad for instance Cuba used to be
supported by the former Soviet Union but
that support ended in 1990 when the
communist bloc was getting ready to
collapse that said Cuba into a
depression by the end of the 90s things
were getting better for Cuba's economy
and that was thanks to oil provided by
Venezuela but as that country's economy
has crumbled in recent years those oil
supplies have dried up and so once again
Cuba may be facing a crisis the country
has voiced support for the Venezuelan
government and that's resulted in
economic penalties from the United
States which opposes Venezuela's
government how bad could things get for
Cuba the nation's Communist Party leader
recently indicated that conditions
probably won't be as difficult as they
were in the early and mid 90s but that
his nation had to be ready for the worst
signs of trouble have already reached
Cuban shores and moved inland Juana
leaves her old havana apartment to see
what there is at the bodega
that's what Cubans call these small
neighborhood markets that carry products
subsidized by the government
the options have always been scarce but
these days Juana says there is less and
less for people like her Juana is
retired with a government pension of
about 12 dollars a month and she washes
laundry for her neighbors so she can
afford to eat if you work you don't get
anything she says when you go to a
market there's nothing the people who
buy to resell take everything facing the
worst food shortages in years the Cuban
government is
implementing even stricter rationing on
increasingly hard to find products like
chicken eggs and soap the government
blames the shortages on increased US
sanctions but the slow collapse of
socialist ally Venezuela which sends
Cuba most of the islands supply of oil
is also taking a toll Cuba imports most
of the food its citizens consume and the
government has the monopoly on those
imports Cuban officials have told the
populous to remain calm every day though
there are longer lines at this
government-run supermarket which charges
for mostly imported goods at prices far
beyond what many Cubans can afford to
pay hoarding of products is increasing
as fears grow that a severe economic
crisis is on the horizon so there are
several hundred people who have been
here for hours waiting because the word
has gotten out that there will be
chicken at this market I got a message
on a social media app called domme di
comida where is their food the problem
is though even if you get here you have
to get here early to make sure you're
the right place in line because by the
time you get inside there may be none
left for many Cubans this has become a
daily ritual waiting in line for hours
to buy a single item I've been here for
an hour other people since 5:00 a.m.
Arata miss tells me on Mother's Day I
came at 9:00 a.m. and left at 4 p.m.
it's too many hours the shortages came
quits identity as the government finally
gave Cubans widespread access to mobile
Internet for the first time allowing
frustrated consumers to post their
photos on social media of endless lines
and even the occasional fight breaking
out for people on the bottom like Juana
the answer to the crisis seems to be
more government rationing so that
everyone gets their share well I ain't
got hope I don't like that or that it's
very expensive fruit is so expensive
everything and she says it's because of
the people who resell things there
should be a law making them lower the
prices food shortages that despite near
total government control are now out of

ten-second trivia what is pious song is
it a French desert flowering plant a
type of straw or a tunic this is a type
of straw that's woven to make hats and
that word is apparently one of the
hardest for students to spell at the
Scripps National Spelling Bee the 2019
competitions coming up next week in the
US state of Maryland the group of
linguists from Babel a language learning
tool teamed up with folks from the
merriam-webster dictionary to determine
the hardest words from the past decade
the ones that knocked out spelling bee
contestants in the last round they
included several terms that came from
other languages like French German and
Italian and for many of them their
pronunciations and meanings may be as
elusive as their spellings consider
family a german word that means
excessive enthusiasm another french term
was gay Ardea a type of plant or flower
how about osaka wheat a a pine tree
you'll find in Mexico or chipolina an
Italian word for a type of Roman marble
lasse was on the list
it's a Hindi term for a yogurt drink so
was hot chuck a czech term for the mark
that's over the sea in this word so if
you're an aspiring spelling champion
practice these for a spell up next today
if a meatball is meatless what kind of
ball is it a plant ball the one that
IKEA is developing is the Swedish
company is one of many trying to cash in
on a growing demand for meat
alternatives which are intended to taste
like beef but be healthier not
everyone's on board for some consumers
the taste of plant-based meat
alternatives simply isn't meaty enough
there's also a growing consumer
preference for simple natural foods with
few ingredients meat alternatives can
have more than 15 ingredients the u.s.
food market analyst says that could
cause problems for the industry in the
years ahead
the unmistakable sizzle of meat on the
grill the real meat of the beyond meat
we have our beyond burger over here and
we have our beef burger over here
once you dress them up it's impossible
total difference at this bear burger
restaurant in Manhattan burgers made
from plant protein make up a meaty
portion of sales the response has been
great it's been so great in fact that
our menu is now 50% vegan for the first

beyond meats beefy IPO soared a hundred
and sixty percent on its first day of
trading on May 2nd the best IPO jump of
a major US company since the financial
crisis analysts believe it's part of a
veggie revolution that is just getting
started if it follows the same path that
the plant-based beverage market followed
you'd see it growing from roughly 13
billion 14 billion dollars today up to
potentially over 40 billion dollars over
the next decade well beyond meats is not
yet profitable its revenues are up more
than a hundred and thirty percent in
each of the past three years and it's
expanding into new product categories
like meatless sausage it's not just
being into vegetarians that are
interested in this in fact 93% of the
people that are putting them beyond
burger in their cart at the nation's
largest grocer are also putting animal
protein in their car it's a tremendous
sign that we're able to grow the
business thank you very much now the
beyond burger it does have some
competition mainly from this one which
is the impossible burger from impossible
foods that's already on the menu at
Burger King which is rolling out the
impossible whopper mcdonald's is also
selling a meatless burger and germany

the world's biggest meat producers is
also set to launch a fake meat
if I smell like meat as for my first
bite well it felt like eating a burger
just a little less beefy but I quite
like them they're not exactly like meat
but they are something interesting and I
do think this might be a taste of things
to come
