MANAGUA, NICARAGUA







Last Sunday’s reelection of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez could turn Nicaragua into major oil exporter before the end of the decade.




As President Chávez tackles the herculean task on investing in the modernization of sluggish state oil company Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) – the golden goose that funds the expansionist Bolivarian Alliance for our Americas (ALBA) – Venezuela’s long-stalled plan to build a $6.6 billion oil refinery in northwestern Nicaragua is being given new relevance and urgency.




The so-called “Supreme Dream of Bolívar” refinery in Nicaragua would give Chávez a Pacific gatew…

LOSING FAITH : USA Protestants no longer a majority - study

The decline was concentrated among white Protestants, including evangelicals





For the first time ever, the US no longer has a majority of Protestants as the number of people with no religious affiliation rises, a study has found.



The Pew report found only 48% of adults identified themselves as Protestants, down from 53% five years ago.



The long-expected decline was pinned to a rise in those claiming no religion - about 20% of Americans, the study said.






There are no Protestants on the Republican presidential ticket for the first time this year.




Nor are there any Protestant Supreme Court justices.




The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life said the number of people with no religious affiliation was up five percentage points from 15% in the last five years.





The category includes atheists, as well as people who believe in God or who identify themselves as "spiritual" but not "religious".




The study concluded most of the respondents were not seeking new ties within another religio…

Walmart Now Has Too Many Disgruntled Employees To Ignore








Walmart workers are threatening to strike on the busiest day of the year--Black Friday.



A strike would undoubtedly create chaos on an already crazy day.





Protests have been building since last week, when Walmart employees staged the first-ever multi-store strike in the 50-year history of the retailer.



Steve Greenhouse at The New York Times spoke with Dan Schlademan, director of the union-backed Making Change at Walmart campaign.






From the NYT:

"He warned that disgruntled Wal-Mart employees, joined by labor unions and community groups, might stage a combined protest and educational campaign the Friday after Thanksgiving, the traditional start of the holiday shopping season."









So far, there are striking employees from 28 stores, with more to come.










Walmart is supposed to respond to the strikes with an announcement at its investor meeting today. It will be int…

México: Sólo con calidad y que sea inocuo, el mango michoacano será competitivo ...

De acuerdo con la información proporcionada por el titular del Sistema Producto Mango no gubernamental en Michoacán, Javier Chávez Contreras, en la comercialización del fruto reside uno de los problemas estructurales del mercado de mayor impacto, pues se tiene una posición débil en este ámbito, al carecerse de créditos oportunos, instalaciones de acopio adecuadas, un manejo postcosecha, clasificación y empaque de calidad, transporte adecuado, información confiable sobre los mercados y programas agresivos de fitosanidad e inocuidad.





En consecuencia, Chávez Contreras destacó que lamentablemente siguen siendo los intermediarios los que cumplen con la función de financiamiento de la cosecha, acopio, clasificación, empaque y comercialización de cosechas al mayoreo en los mercados de exportación, lo que les permite retener importantes márgenes en sus operaciones de compra-venta.





Así, el líder manguero en Michoacán indicó que en el mercado nacional son los productores los que surten de fruta a…
