“It’s because the University of Georgia is one of the biggeststate universities in the United States and it is very good inbioengineering and poultry,” Ryong said. “Georgia hasa lot of achievement in broiler production. Also, you’ve got pecantrees, which could be similar (to producing) hazelnuts in Korea.”Facing the food shortage back home, the delegation wants to develophardy, nutritional food varieties, and UGA CAES potato researchwas high priority for the group. “We especially enjoy the production of potatoes and sweetpotatoes. The Koreans should carry out what we call the PotatoRevolution,” Ryong said.Last October, a UGA CAES delegation lead by Gale Buchanan, deanand director of the UGA CAES, visited the Academy of AgriculturalSciences in DPRK.”The conclusion of the discussions was that if we work together,we can get much benefit for people of both countries. That kindof cooperation was suggested by Gale Buchanan and other membersof the delegation,” Ryong said.Armed with agricultural knowledge and plans for future visitsback to Georgia, the delegation will return to DPRK Thursday.

The first mixtape in the series, Chasing The Golden Hour Pt. 1, was released back in 2015. At the time, Chasing The Golden Pt. 1 gained a lot of buzz from fans and critics alike, as the mix deviated from the DJ’s usual style. Now, two years later, Chasing The Golden Hour Pt. 2 is free and available to the public and serves as a perfect follow-up to its predecessor.GRiZ Debuts Live Band At Two-Night Red Rocks Run [Photos]Featuring ten individual tracks, Chasing The Golden Hour Pt. 2 perfectly captures the vibes of summertime, making it an appropriate end of summer gift to fans. The mix still blends hip-hop, soul, dance, and R&B in GRiZ’s characteristic manner, while simultaneously using minimalist beats and blended instrumental tracks to create a more laid-back feel to the project. Chasing The Golden Hour Pt. 2’s release comes on the heels of GRiZ’s three back-to-back sold-out performances, including two headlining performances at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. This latest release from GRiZ also comes after the producer launched his own beer line last week—his similarly named Chasing The Golden Hour Ale in collaboration with Great Divide Brewing Company, which is a colette brewed with Colorado peaches.You can check out the latest release from GRiZ here, plus check out his upcoming dates for his Good Will Continue tour below.
