Chávez: ¿tendrá muerte cerebral? ...

VENEZUELA



Mientras el vicepresidente, Nicolás Maduro, afirma que Chávez "imparte ordenes", hay rumores de que murió.






Nicolás Maduro, vicepresidente de Venezuela, dijo este martes que el presidente venezolano, Hugo Chávez, entró en “tratamientos complementarios duros, muy duros”, luego de haber superado el posoperatorio en Cuba y de haber regresado a Venezuela.






Según Maduro, el presidente venezolano “imparte órdenes” aunque persisten sus dificultades médicas.






Según el vicepresidente, Chávez afronta "dificultades respiratorias” que “no le impiden comunicarse y dar órdenes sobre distintos aspectos de la vida". Y añadió que el pasado viernes mantuvo una reunión de trabajo con Chávez y otros funcionarios en el Hospital Militar de Caracas.






"No tengan duda que sabremos defender la obra hermosa del comandante Hugo Chávez Frías", también dijo el vicepresidente del Ejecutivo venezolano, afirmación que generó suspicacias.






Pocas horas después de las afirmaciones de Maduro…

While departing CEO of J. Lauritzen, Torben Janholt, was giving his farewell reception yesterday, J. Lauritzen's new CEO Jan Kastrup-Nielsen revealed the news of a 2012 characterized by very poor developments.








"2012 was characterized by a massive supply of tonnage in the largest shipping markets, an excess of shipyard capacity, low economic growth, as well as tight credit conditions. In total, this resulted in a significant decrease of ship values, a Baltic Freight Index at the lowest level in 25 years, and more instances of shipping companies unable to fullfill their commitments," says Jan Kastrup-Nielse…

The National Mango Board, whose first food safety conference is set for March 6, recently became one of several industry partners funding Center for Produce Safety research.




The Mango Food Safety Conference will be in McAllen, Texas, in connection with the America Trades Produce Conference & Expo. Retail, foodservice and government representatives are expected to address issues facing growers, packers and importers, Bill Vogel, board chairman and president of Vision Produce Co., said in a news release.






The Center for Produce Safety and its partners plan to fund $3 million in food safety research this year. The application deadline is March 28.








The board’s mango-specific research priorities include questions raised by the hot water treatments required of most imported fruit. 


Importers and exporters want to know if the treatments pose a cross contamination risk, and whether mangoes can internalize pathogens as a result. The tr…
