STAGE 14 : DAKAR RALLY 2013 SET FOR ASSAULT ON SANTIAGO, CHILE ...

La transición en Venezuela está en manos de la inteligencia cubana...

Internacional Hugo Chávez.
El Paciente Cubano





Fidel Castro en 1959 tenía ya en la cabeza el sueño de Nasser de la República Árabe Unida.













Cuando una orden internacional del juez Garzón inmovilizó en Londres a Augusto Pinochet, hubo quienes recordaron la película de Anthony Minghella, basada en el libro de Michael Ondaatje, El paciente inglés.



Ahora tenemos a un paciente cubano, Hugo Chávez Frías.






No pudo jurar el 10 de enero su mandato presidencial, y todo indica que ese paciente es un enfermo terminal. 


Por tanto, hay en perspectiva una transición en Venezuela. 



Una transición que está en manos de la inteligencia cubana. 



Hay incluso suspicaces extremos que creen que ya habría muerto, y que Cuba lo anunciará cuando haya consolidado la continuidad del régimen.





En 1985 conocí a Fidel Castro. 




He contado ese encuentro en mi último libro, Perú, país de metal y de melancolía. 




Cuando le dije en broma que seguramente se despertaba cada día lamentando que Cuba no fuese Brasil, me contestó en serio inme…

INDIA (Maharashtra) : Alphonso mangoes may cost less this year

Alphonso mangoes may cost a few rupees less this season if an initiative of the Maharashtra Government to reduce the transportation costs succeeds.




According to the proposal of the Agriculture Department, mango-growers from the Konkan region, where the Alphonso magoes are largely cultivated, can directly ship their produce to Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT).




They can load their product in containers at the Jaigad port and off-load at the JNPT.






"Once at the JNPT, farmers have the choice of export, going to the Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC) or directly to the consumers," officials in the Agriculture Department said adding that the overall cost of the mangoes can come down by eight to ten per cent.




At present, mangoes are transported in trucks from Konkan. "This affects the quality, increases the diesel cost, handling charges, resulting in high price of the Alphonso mango," officials informed.





They said, farmers also have to pay six per cent cess at the AP…

Gambia: Mango Packaging Facility Inaugurated in Brikama ...

BY AMADOU JALLOW, 18 JANUARY 2013
















The Methodist Mission Agricultural Programme (MMAP) Thursday inaugurated a new mango processing facility at its garden in Brikama Nyambai.




The project, funded through the support of the Japanese government, is worth 58, 637 Euros equivalent to D2, 220,200 million.






It is designed to include the construction of a processing facility for horticultural produce and the provision of food preservation equipment.




The facility will also provide skills training in food preservation for women and young people.




In her keynote address, Naffie Barry, the permanent secretary, Ministry of Trade, Regional Integration and Employment, said the project was conceived due to the need to reduce the post-harvest losses of locally grown fruits. It is also meant to increase the income that small holder farmers generate from their horticultural production activities.



She remarked that post-harvest losses have been recognised as a major challenge in the development of the horticulture…

WESTERN AUSTRALIA : Top Quality Carnarvon mangoes come early ...

Carnarvon's mango season is ahead of schedule, with growers picking varieties up to 10 days earlier than they have in past years.



The season is in full swing at the moment and with a good quality crop on the trees growers are working hard to make sure they can get it picked before it ends up on the groun
d.





Eddie Smith from Calypso Plantation is more than halfway through his crop and says although his mangoes are coming on early the quality is very high.




"65 to 70 per cent of our crop is firsts at the moment whereas in previous years it's been as low as 45 to 50 per cent, so this year is really, really good.




"The way we're packing a lot of our seconds is, you'd get away with marking it up as grade ones but we're just trying to keep our standards right up."

Cuba podría llevar a Chávez a Caracas si consigue estabilizarlo ...

El presidente venezolano tuvo un ligero fallo cardiaco el día 5 y entró en breve coma

Los médicos cubanos que atienden a Hugo Chávez han estado recibiendo una enorme presión del régimen castrista para lograr que el presidente venezolano consiga estabilizarse mínimamente con el fin al menos de poder juramentar el cargo y nombrar vicepresidente a Nicolás Maduro, aunque un desplazamiento en avión a Venezuela suponga importantes riesgos para su delicada condición.







Así lo aseguran fuentes en contacto con el equipo de facultativos destacados en el Cimeq cubano, que no descartan que próximamente Chávez sea trasladado quizás al Hospital Militar de Caracas, donde juramentaría y probablemente quedaría internado mientras avanza su cáncer terminal.






 Al parecer se estarían haciendo ya algunos preparativos en la capital venezolana.

Tenaz y carismático fundador de Zamorano (1877 – 1961) ...

Samuel Zemurray







En 1941 su admirable sensibilidad filantrópica lo impulsaría a crear Zamorano, un ambicioso proyecto destinado a impulsar el desarrollo de la región a través de la educación agrícola tecnificada.












Tenaz y carismático fundador de Zamorano
(1877 – 1961)





Samuel Zemurray nació el 18 de enero de 1877 en Kishinev, Besarabia, actualmente República de Moldavia, en el seno de un hogar humilde y de origen judíos. Sus padres se dedicaban al negocio de la abarrotería.




Zemurray vivió parte de su vida en la aldea de Shargorud, Rusia, pero la condición modesta y la falta de recursos económicos de la familia Blausman Zmurri, no le permitió disfrutar de comodidades en su niñez ni temprana juventud. Creció trabajando y soñando con un futuro diferente, mejor de todo lo que hasta entonces había conocido.




En 1892, con apenas 15 años, emigró a los Estados Unidos de América. El joven Zemurray tenía un gran espíritu de trabajo y una gran habilidad para los negocios, por lo que fácilmente se adaptó a…

MEXICAN MANGO MAFIA: Zetas Fight Sinaloa Cartel for Guatemala Drug Routes ...

Written by Miriam Wells and Hannah Stone
Monday, 14 January 2013








In comments that highlight the power of Mexican trafficking organizations within Guatemala, President Otto Perez said that the Zetas gang controlled two of the country’s biggest drug routes, and were fighting the Sinaloa Cartel for the third.






In an interview with AFP marking the end of his first year in power, Guatemalan leader Perez said that Mexican cartels continued to expand their presence in his country, and were working to penetrate state institutions and recruit ex-soldiers.




The president said that the Zetas were interested in recruiting former members of elite counter-insurgency group the Kaibiles (of which Perez himself was a member), because the soldiers have “not just preparation, but discipline and military training that could help [the Zetas] with illegal activities."








According to Perez, the Zetas control a trafficking route through Peten province, another route which runs through the center of the country, …
