THE MANGO WORLD WAS "SHOCKED" THIS YEAR AT THE "MISS UNIVERSE" COMPETITION...MISS ANGOLA TAKES THE WORLD BY SURPRISE...

Leila Lopes of Angola is crowned Miss Universe






SAO PAULO (AP) -- Leila Lopes from Angola was crowned Miss Universe Monday night, smoothly handling an interview question about what physical trait she would change if she could by stating it was her inner beauty and principles that counted most.

The 25-year-old Lopes is Angola's first winner. 

She beat out 88 other competitors to win the title during the 60th anniversary of the world's biggest beauty pageant. She replaces last year's winner, Ximena Navarrete of Mexico.




"Thank God I'm very satisfied with the way God created me and I wouldn't change a thing," Lopes said when asked her interview question. "I consider myself a woman endowed with inner beauty. I have acquired many wonderful principles from my family and I intend to follow these for the rest of my life."



The first runner-up was 23-year-old Olesia Stefanko of Ukraine and the second runner-up was Priscila Machado of Brazil.

Lunes 12 Septiembre 2011



La angoleña Leila Lopes, de 25 años, fue elegida como nueva Miss Universo en la gala celebrada en la noche de este lunes en Sao Paulo.

La concursante angoleña fue la ganadora en el 60 aniversario del concurso de belleza que comenzó como un desfile local de chicas en traje de baño en Long Beach, California.

Lopes, una estudiante de administración de empresas, se impuso en la votación final a la ucraniana Olesia Stefanko (virreina), y a las candidatas de Brasil, Priscila Machado, Filipinas, Shamcey Supsup, y China, Luo Zilin, que en ese orden fueron escogidas primera, segunda y tercera princesas.

La elección del jurado fue equilibrada desde el punto …

DRUG CARTELS WEIGH IN HEAVILY IN CENTRAL AMERICA'S PREMIER MANGO PRODUCER'S ELECTIONS...

Narco elite vs oligarchy: Guatemala votes


Drug cartels allegedly finance political parties during an election in one of Latin America's most violent countries.

Drug trafficking and gang violence have made Guatemala one of the most violent countries in Latin America [Reuters]


As candidates square-off in Guatemala’s presidential election, a broader political battle is transpiring away from the campaign signs and populist rhetoric: the old oligarchy is fighting to maintain its privileged position against an increasingly powerful "narco elite".

The old elite, or oligarchs, usually come from a feudal-style landowning class linked to coffee exports, cattle ranching and some heavy industry, such as cement production. The new narcos deal in cocaine, marijuana and assassinations.

"Members of the new elite might buy a Hummer from a Mexican singer and everyone will know they are corrupt," said Martín Rodríguez Pellecer, director…

Como es conocido por todo el país, la hermosa representante de Venezuela en el Miss Universo 2011, es Vanessa Goncalves. Esta joven coronada en Maracaibo como Miss Venezuela tiene “paralizado” a medio Brasil con su participación en el certamen.

Vanessa es conocida como la “Barbie” del concurso. Su bien moldeada figura, su simpatía y su rostro que pareciera haber sido dibujado a mano realzan una vez más la belleza de la mujer venezolana.

No es de extrañar que Vanessa se convierta en la próxima soberana de la belleza universal y en la séptima local en ganar la famosa corona, la misma que llevó Maritza Sayalero, Irene Sáez, Barbará Palacios, Alicia Machado, Dayana Mendoza y Stefania Fernández , quienes actualmente son consagradas empresarias, modelos, presentadoras y actrices.

Según los foristas del sitio web más importante de los Estados Unidos, www.univision.com, la bella Goncalves es …

NOVEL USE FOR MANGO "LEATHERS" CREATES "LIFELONG" CUSTOMER...AND MOM IS HAPPY TOO...

Maybe the Mango Ate Your Baby

POSTED BY RONI ON SEPTEMBER 12TH, 2011 AT 1:33 PM




Little Bean being attacked by his mango.




With baby #1 I discovered the perfect teether. 
Trader Joe’s sells dried mango slices without added sugar. 
The are like a natural fruit leather! Malleable and sturdy, a nice slice can hold up to even the most drool prone baby. 
As the baby “gums” it, the mango gets soft but never falls to pieces.

Little Bean loves them just like his older brother did at that age.



Little Bean and his mango.

As you can see, the slices are easy to hold. As the baby gnaws on them with his gums (no teeth yet) they soften and he gets all the mango flavor. For Little Bean, this has been working great as his first finger food. He doesn’t quite have the dexterity for Cheerios or other small pieces quite yet.

Since they have a long shelf life, I stock up on them when I hit Trader Joe’s and keep a bag of them in my purse. Best part… Mom gets to eat them too. :)

What did/do your little ones gnaw on? Any …

Tiger vs. Dragon: A Demographic Comparison of India and China


FREAKONOMICS



09/12/2011 | 1:07 pm





One of the biggest story lines of the 21st century is going to be the continued economic rise of China and India.
 According to the World Bank, both countries grew at a rate of 9.1% in 2009. Here’s a chart of their growth since the 1960s:


While their recent growth has been roughly similar, China and India also boast the two largest populations on the planet

But a new study by RAND shows the giants heading down different demographic paths. 


From the abstract:


Demographic contrasts between China and India will become more pronounced in the coming decades, and these differences hold implications for the countries’ relative economic prospects. 
China’s population is larger than India’s, but India’s population is expected to surpass China’s by 2025. 

China’s population is older than India’s and beginning to age rapidly, which may constrain economic growth, whereas an increasing percentage of India’s pop…

AGREXCO TRUSTEE ORDERED BY COURT TO BEGIN LIQUIDATION PROCESS...LAST HOPES LIE WITH GOVERNMENT FOR FINAL BAILOUT...

Agrexco heads for liquidation

The Tel Aviv District Court terminated the stay of proceedings against the government-owned agricultural produce exporter.


11 September 11 13:36, Chen Ma'anit and Lilach Weissman
Tel Aviv District Court Judge Varda Alshech today terminated the stay of proceedings against Agrexco, officially sending the government-owned agricultural produce exporter into liquidation. 
Agrexco trustee Adv. Shlomo Nass has begun the procedures.

Nass is nevertheless still pursuing effects to sell the company as a going concern, and he is in talks about various offers. 

Six weeks ago, a week after he was appointed trustee, he told "Globes" that the liquidation of Agrexco would seriously hurt thousands of farmers, to the point of destroying their livelihoods, because they would not be paid for their produce delivered.

On Tuesday, the Knesset Finance Committee will hold a special meeting on Agrexco. MK Shai Hermesh (Kadima), chairman of the agricultural lobby, called for …
