Violence is creeping upwards in Baja California Sur



















In the past month, the normally peaceful state of Baja California Sur, Mexico has seen a rash of murders, which authorities have blamed on a conflict between the Sinaloa Cartel and a new alliance between the Zetas and the Beltran Leyva Organization.






According to Zeta magazine, Baja California Sur has registered 10 murders in the past month alone, all of which are believed to be linked to organized crime.





The Beltran Leyva Organization (BLO) is using local criminal cells and a partnership with the Zetas in order to intensify its long-running conflict with the Sinaloa Cartel, authorities told the magazine.





In one recent outbreak of violence, the head of the drug trafficking "plaza" in coastal town Los Barriles was killed by a group of assassins who poured as many as 60 bullets into his body.

IMO Global Mango Conference VENUE CHANGE

http://www.internationalmango.org/

















The IMO Global Mango Conference (Cabo San Lucas, Mexico) scheduled for January 12-14, 2015 has been changed to The Double Tree Hotel By Hilton in Del Mar, California for the same dates due to Security concerns in Mexico.









Recent reports of increased violence across Mexico and an upsurge in Baja California Sur, have caused the International mango Organization (IMO) to change the venue for the Mexico sop of the IMO Glopbal mango Conference series to San Diego, California.








The one-two punch of aftermath of Hurricane and the recent security concerns in Mexico in General and the once tranquil Baja California Sur specifically, have caused the change of venue.








The new venue for the IMO Global mango Conference will be the Double Tree By Hilton located in Del Mar, California.









The advantages of a Southern California location with an International Airport and Proximity to major Southern California Markets for mango make San Diego area a logical choice for an alternat…

CHANGE could be afoot in the Northern Territory mango industry if entomologist Austin McLennan gets his way.




At the Katherine Research Station, Dr McLennan and his team are running trials to prove that local mangoes need not be sent to Queensland for expensive post-harvest spraying before export to Asia.




Despite the long-held belief that fruit flies are a significant pest for NT mangoes, Dr McLennan is seeking to demonstrate otherwise.



The reason is a simple one. While fruit fly infestations are abundant in ripe, yellow mangoes, rates of infestation in mature green mangoes are virtually non-existent.




Yet, the current protocols do not reflect this commercial reality.

Luego de haber concluido la reunión de la OPEP en Viena y dado a conocer la noticia de que los países que conforman ese grupo no bajarán su producción de petróleo, el periódico digital PRODAVINCI publicó un extenso artículo escrito por Víctor Salmerón titulado ¿A dónde van los precios del petróleo tras la decisión de la OPEP?






Por su contenido en lo referente a Venezuela hemos destacado varios párrafos que los dejaran asombrados. Salmerón nos explica entre otras cosas que “Después de la dolorosa experiencia de los años ochenta, los países petroleros entendieron la necesidad de no gastarlo todo cuando el precio del barril se dispara y ahorrar una porción importante del ingreso, a fin de no someter a la población a penosos ajustes, en caso de que el oro negro pierda brillo”.






En su artículo Salmerón nos informa lo que hicieron algunos productores de petróleo con sus voluminosas entradas: “Hay datos del Sovereign Wealth Fund Instit…
