CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Venezuelan voters Luis Gustavo Marin and Dunia Nessi are on opposite sides of the political spectrum, but as Sunday's election draws closer they both fear what will happen if their candidate loses.




Marin, the security chief for a judge and a firm supporter of President Hugo Chavez, worries that opposition candidate Henrique Capriles will launch a violent purge of Chavez supporters if he wins. If the president prevails, Nessi, a 62-year-old accountant, believes violent crime that has run rampant under Chavez will spiral even further out of control.




"There is absolutely no security," Nessi said. "If he wins I'll either have to stay and live with the tension or I can pack two suitcases, throw four things into them and leave."




Fear of every stripe, in fact, permeates the intensely polarized campaign, with many votes to be decided based not on the candidates' …

[Editor's Note: Sometimes getting a recipe right is as simple as knowing exactly the right ingredients to use. This seemingly-easy Thai dessert requires a specific kind of rice to make it work—if that element is missing, it won't resemble the real thing! Learn the secret of the delicious dessert, which is a great one to keep in your back pocket for gluten-free or vegan entertaining. --Genie]








Mango Sticky Rice - Khao Niew Mamuang




The key here is to use a perfectly ripe mango whose flesh is sweet and smooth. I prefer the Ataulfo mangoes, but any variety that is ripe and sweet should work well. Then you spoon another little bit of the coconut sauce on top, sprinkle with some toasted sesame seeds, and before you know it, you have one of Thailand’s most popular desserts!

Venezolanos en Miami parten en masa a votar a Nueva Orleans



JMS / Globovisión/ AFP







Unos 7.000 venezolanos están viajando desde el viernes en buses y aviones para recorrer los más de 1.350 kilómetros que separan a Miami de Nueva Orleans, en el sur de Estados Unidos, donde el domingo votarán en unas elecciones que consideran históricas para decidir el futuro del país.




"Partimos en la 'Caravana del Progreso' porque creemos que hay un camino para la esperanza, para la paz y la reconciliación de nuestra querida Venezuela", dijo a la AFP María Luisa Gárafo, que con diez amigas subió el viernes a uno de los autobuses que la organización juvenil "Votodondesea" dispuso a un precio preferencial para los votantes.








Aunque ya partieron a Nueva Orleans los primeros de los 11 vuelos charter con 155 pasajeros cada uno, y los primeros de los 50 autobuses con 55 personas por vehículo, este sábado la llamada "Caravana del Progreso&q…

Philippine troops capture senior communist rebel leader, 3 other suspected insurgents ...

By Associated Press, Updated: Saturday, October 6, 6:12 AM





MANILA, Philippines — Philippine troops have captured a senior communist rebel leader who had received military training in Libya and had a $135,000 bounty for his arrest, a military spokesman said Saturday.



New People’s Army regional chief Benjamin Mendoza and three other suspected insurgents were arrested in the early hours of Saturday outside their hideout in suburban Quezon City, said Col. Generoso Bolina.



Mendoza is a member of the central committee of the Communist Party of the Philippines and also heads a regional party group south of Manila, Bolina said.




One of the other suspects, Josephine Mendoza, is an executive committee member of the regional party group. It was not immediately clear how she is related to the rebel leader, Bolina said.



He said Mendoza underwent commando, heavy weapons, bomb-making and sniper training in Libya in the early 1980s.



Mendoza planned several successful raids and ambushes against soldiers and …

REALLY ???: THERE IS NO HYPERINFLATION IN IRAN – The Real Story Is Much More Interesting ...

Matthew Boesler | 5 minutes ago





Rick Santorum





Contrary to reports, there is no hyperinflation in Iran right now at all.





In fact, the Western sanctions imposed on Iran's oil trade are failing miserably to meet their objectives.



And a regime collapse – or even, coming short of that, another popular uprising reminiscent of June 2009 – seems further away from Iran than ever.



Meanwhile, the Iranian regime is using the current sanctions imposed against it by the West as a weapon to weaken its own fiercest domestic threat – the educated, relatively pro-Western Iranian constituency that comprises the middle class.



In this way, the economic warfare the West has waged against Iran to weaken the regime is actually amplifying the regime's control – and the oil sanctions appear to be sending Iran down the same path that saw Saddam Hussein rise to power in Iraq in the early 1990s.



Before we get to that, though, we need to take a look at why there is no hyperinflation in Iran – because what is bein…
