Beyond Meat, the plant-based burger startup, announced it will triple its production capacity with a new facility in Columbia, Missouri.

The Memphis, TN-based Beyond Meat said the expansion is due to increasing demand for its Beyond Burger and Beyond Sausage products. The new plant will create more than 250 new jobs in what is described as a state-of-the-art facility that features high efficiency lighting and new water recirculation systems that reduce consumption by nearly 80%. The added production area also will open up options for further new product launches, the company said.

“We first came to Missouri in 2009 to access the outstanding research being conducted at the University of Missouri,” said Ethan Brown, CEO and found of Beyond Meat. “We have been investing in, and growing together with, Columbia, MO ever since, and I’m pleased to announce this latest manufacturing investment, our largest to date. Our expansion not only brings more jobs and opportunity to this special community but also furthers Missouri’s position as a leader in the production of plant-based meat.”

With the expansion in Columbia, Beyond Meat’s manufacturing footprint will increase from 30,000 to 100,000 square feet.

“This expansion in our production capacity will help us to meet the considerable increase in market demand we have seen for our new and innovative product offerings,” said Mark Nelson, COO & CFO at Beyond Meat.

Stop calling it meat, it is not meat. Fake meat that the consumer has no idea what is in it

⚔️SECURITY is a constant concern in today’s world, when technology can easily work with or against our safety. Everyone carries a smartphone these days, with a growing 2.32 billion users who access private information on their device daily.
The question is, who else is accessing that private information?
In 2016, hackers targeted nearly a million Android phones–and that statistic isn’t even considering phones with other operating systems such as Apple or Windows.
Luckily, there are ways to tell whether your smartphone has been hacked. If any activity on your phone seems suspicious, run a few quick checks to make sure that your phone’s security is on the up-and-up. Let’s start from the beginning 😃

✅KNOW THE SIGNS AND SIGNALS ✅
Make yourself aware of common signs that your phone is being monitored. Knowing all these codes doesn’t help if you don’t know what abnormal activity looks like, and therefore don’t know when or how to use them. Warning signs include:
* ✅ UNKNOWN APPS: Malicious monitoring apps need to be directly installed on your device, so it’s a red flag if you see an app with a vague name that you don’t recognize.
* ✅ RAPID BATTERY LOSS: Malware constantly running in the background takes a toll on your phone’s resources, which can also lead to slow performance and unusual overheating.
* ✅ STRANGE TEXT MESSAGES : Are friends receiving SMS or social media messages that you didn’t send?
* ✅ INCREASED DATA USAGE OR SMS: When your data and SMS use for the month exceeds your normal use significantly, it can mean that you’re not the only one controlling device use.
* ✅ POP-UP DESPITE HAVING AN ADBLOCKER: Strange pop-ups may appear attempting to phish information if malware is affecting your phone.
* ✅ BLOCKED EMAILS: Are you sending e-mails that never reach their destination? This mysterious phenomena indicates that your e-mail configuration has been moved to an unauthorized server.
* ✅DATA BREACHES: If you’ve had private information like passwords or private messages leaked, that’s a good sign that there’s a problem elsewhere. 
This isn’t an exhaustive list of potential signs and signals that you’re being hacked, but it should give you a good idea so you can make common-sense decisions about what’s normal and what isn’t. Next: what action should you take if you notice a red flag?
