INTERVIEW BY MARTHA CHENG | JUN 9, 2010














MARK SUISO OF MAKAHA MANGOES / In case you couldn’t tell already, mango season is upon us, as manifested from Chinatown streets to farmers’ markets to highway shoulders to–if you’re lucky–your backyard tree. 





For Mark Suiso of Makaha Mangoes, mango season means not only keeping up with demand at Whole Foods and Alan Wong’s, but preaching the gospel of a mango tree in every backyard. 





A financial planner by day, Suiso continues to give advice after hours–on how to start and maintain mango and fruit trees; during these sessions, the currency is fruit and the bank is your soul. 



Suiso spoke with the Weekly about why he’d rather you grow your own mangoes than buy his.






How did you start growing mangoes?


My father started growing some trees. He got a parcel of land in Makaha and started planting mango trees long ago. Back in the ‘50s that’s what a lot of people did…what’s been happening over the last decade or so is that people have been…

"I think we have some of the best mangoes in the entire world here in Hawaii,"
says chef Alan Wong.



"And both Alan Wong's Honolulu and The Pineapple Room will be featuring mango on the menu for the entire month of June! Each restaurant will be serving a specialty mango cocktail, appetizer, entrée and dessert. We received our first batch of Makaha Mangoes, and we hope to keep more coming from all the farms!"










At Alan Wong's Honolulu, tempt your palate with a Mango specialty cocktail or try one of Chef de Cuisine Wade Ueoka's newly created selections. Be sure to save room for one of Pastry Chef Michelle Karr's weekly mango desserts.

En agosto del 2011 el difunto y expresidente de Venezuela Hugo Chávez afirmó “Que sacaría las reservas internacionales en oro de Estados Unidos y Europa para ponerlas en economías “sólidas” como China, Rusia y Brasil, además de anunciar que nacionalizará el oro para convertirlo en fondos nacionales”.
http://www.noticias24.com/actualidad/noticia/300464/chavez-a-giordani-esta-manana-amaneci-estudiando-sobre-la-economia/








En el 2012 se decía que el oro constituía el 80% de las reservas de Venezuela y se aseguraba que Venezuela poseía más de 400 toneladas en lingotes de oro, sin embargo en unos cuantos meses ya se hablaba de que las reservas eran de 362 toneladas de oro. ¿Que pasó con la diferencia? Por qué se llevaron oro para Cuba como veremos más adelante?









Una vez repatriado el oro de Inglaterra, noticiasclick publicó una noticia en el 2012 informando donde se decía entre otras cosas que “Un avión militar…

THE NARCO STATE OF CUBAZUELA : And One More Thing…On The Carvajal Affair

by moctavio






So, The Netherlands invoked an article nobody had referred to in the whole affair, to release Hugo Carvajal on Sunday evening. Basically what the Netherlands said was that Art. 13 of the Vienna Convention allows for a Consul named but not accepted to temporarily assume his or her duties. 







Thus, according to this, Carvajal's arrest was valid and his release was valid.



However...




It was somewhat sneaky of the Dutch to release Carvajal on a Sunday, without going to the Judge that originally said Carvajal did not have immunity. 





You would have thought that in a country with Law and Order, the proper procedure and place would have been to go to Court on Monday and request Carvajal's release.




Most likely, the Dutch Government did not want the US to show up in Court on Monday with the extradition papers, creating a conflict. 




The Prosecutor in Aruba had said that the extradition was now just a formality and the US just had to provide the required documentation for it to take pla…

6 Food Industry Tricks You Don’t Know About

July 30, 2014 



By Dr. Mercola If you shop in a typical US supermarket or big-box store, there may be more to your food purchases than meets the eye. Even the simplest of foods – apples, oranges, and chicken, for example – are commonly altered, treated with chemicals, or even injected with artificial coloring. If you value pure real food, there's no getting around the fact that buying your food directly from a farm (or via a farmer's market), or, alternatively, growing it in your own backyard, are among the last remaining ways to secure such unadulterated food for your family.




6 Food-Industry Tricks That Might Shock YouTIME recently featured six food-industry tricks that should be common knowledge, but instead are mostly swept under the carpet. The food industry would rather you believe that your apple is just an apple, rather than a fruit with an added wax coating, for example – and that's only the tip of the iceberg. As TIME reported:
