HURRICANE IRENE BEFORE SHE UNLEASHED HER FURRY OVER NORTH CAROLINA....

PERSONAJE DEL VALLENATO SE MARCHO A SUS 97 AñOS...MARALITO SE HIZO FAMOSO INTERNACIONALMENTE...CUANDO CARLOS VIVES CANTO "LA GOTA FRIA"...MURIO EN PLENO TIERRA DEL MANGO COLOMBIANO...

Moralito se fue de mañanita




Una anemia crónica, neumonía y una crisis renal acabaron con la vida del juglar colombiano Lorenzo Miguel Morales Herrera, quien murió el viernes a los 97 años, en Valledupar















El vallenato, expresión musical por excelencia de Colombia, perdió ayer a uno sus más importantes iconos con la muerte del músico y compositor Lorenzo Morales, a la edad de 97 años, a consecuencia de complicaciones respiratorias y renales, informaron sus allegados.

Autor de numerosas canciones del género vallenato, “Moralito”, como era conocido popularmente, estaba hospitalizado desde hacía varios días en la ciudad de Valledupar.

El artista aprendió a tocar el acordeón a los 12 años y desde entonces comenzó a recorrer la región caribeña de Colombia retando a otros cantantes en uno de los estilos del vallenato, la piqueria, una forma de trova que consiste en improvisar sobre un tema propuesto por el público.

En la piqueria tuvo una marcada rivalidad con Emiliano Zuleta, fallecido en el 2005,…

Peru is the only country in the western Hemisphere that continues to subsidize exports.


This is the root cause of distorted export schemes that have no logical explanation and will ultimately destroy inefficient exporters.


Exporters are distorting Commercial invoices and misrepresenting data in order to qualify for Government subsidies such as 8% drawbacks based on commercial invoice data and refunds of a ridiculous 18% sales tax structure.


The country would do itself a favor if sales taxes were lowered and subsidies eliminated.


Ultimately, Peru cannot go on creating fictitious exports and the country will go through destructive withdrawals much as Colombia did when export incentives were eliminated in the mid 1990s.


When this day of reckoning does come, Peru will finally eliminate roughly 50% of the exporters on the books.


More importantly, Peru will beco…

Compass Declination

Magnetic Declination

Man, you thought latitude and longitude was rough, just check out this declination stuff!

I'm sorry to be the one to tell you that your compass doesn't work quite right. It doesn't really point to the north pole or the south pole.

Not only that, next year it will point someplace different than it does this year! And, someday it may be completely backwards!


Two North Poles



There are actually two north poles - theGeographic north pole which is the axis around which the earth spins, and the Magnetic north pole which is where compass needles point.



Why are there two different poles? Good question!


The magnetic north and south poles are the ends of the magnetic field around the earth. The magnetic field is created by magnetic elements in the earth's fluid outer core and this molten rock does not align perfectly with the axis around which the earth spins.

There are actually many different sources of magnetic activity around and in the world. A…

Scientists probing the Earth's interior have found a large reservoir of water equal to the volume of the Arctic Ocean beneath eastern Asia

Scientists scanning the deep interior of Earth have found evidence of a vast water reservoir beneath eastern Asia that is at least the volume of the Arctic Ocean.

The discovery marks the first time such a large body of water has found in the planet’s deep mantle.

The finding, made by Michael Wysession, a seismologist at Washington University in St. Louis, and his former graduate student Jesse Lawre…

7 Surprises Hurricane Irene May Have In Store

Imagine this scenario: A hurricane has made landfall in a nearby town. You look outside but all you see outside is rain. No lightning. No thunder. No sign of the apocalypse. Then all of a sudden there's a big, fat tornado on the horizon.


People usually have days to prepare for a hurricane, but hurricane-spawned tornadoes (yes, hurricanes can and do spawn tornadoes) can catch people off guard. Hurricane Irene might not be a repeat of Hurricane Beulah, a 1967 storm that spawned more than 100 tornadoes across Texas, but the threat is real with any hurricane that makes landfall.

Tornadoes from Hurricane Irene are just one of the surprising things that people should look out for as the storm threatens landfall along the East Coast. [Infographic: Storm Targets: Where the Hurricanes Hit]

EL BARCELONA...CAMPEON DE LA LIGA...OTRA VEZ...

El Barcelona, ganador de la última edición de la Liga de Campeones, conquistó la Supercopa de Europa de fútbol, este viernes, tras derrotar por 2-0, con goles del argentino Lionel Messi y del español Césc Fábregas, al Oporto, vencedor de la Europa League la pasada campaña.

Esta Supercopa de Europa es la cuarta del palmarés del equipo catalán, que repite triunfo por este título dos años después del conquistado en 2009, cuando se impuso al Shakhtar Donetsk.

El astro argentino del Barcelona puso el 1-0 en el marcador aprovechándose de un error del colombiano Freddy Guarín, del Oporto, quien retrasó un balón hacia su arquero, pero ese pase lo interceptó Messi, sólo ante el portero brasileño Helton, al que batió (39).

El propio Messi asistió a Fábregas, autor del 2-0 tras haber sustituido a Pedro (80), con un pase bombeado que superó la defensa lusa. El flamante fichaje español del Barça batió al arquero del Oporto con el exterior de su pie derecho tras controlar el evío de 'La Pulga&#…
