NEXT TIME IN MIAMI TO CASH YOUR MANGO CHECK ...

Presenting the Cigarette Racing Team’s new AMG Black Series Marauder. 

Not only does it follow the AMG philosophy of outright performance—to which the boat’s twin 1350 hp engines will attest—the Marauder is handcrafted, too. 

The new engines are 20-30% more efficient and, with 2700 total horsepower, the AMG Marauder is faster than ever. 

That’s why Cigarette is the only boat company allowed to use the AMG logo on its products. 

The AMG Marauder will be at the Miami Boat Show this weekend, but in the meantime, enjoy these photos.

Decenas de pueblos se encuentran aislados a consecuencia de las lluvias en el sector de Cieneguillo Centro, Sur y Norte de la provincia de Sullana. Estas zonas se encuentran en peligro debido al incremento del caudal del canal Daniel Escobar y ante la colmatación de los principales drenes. Hasta la zona llegaron miembros de la junta de usuarios del Valle del Chira y de la Comisión de Regantes de Cieneguillo, verificando al mismo tiempo el lamentable estado de la carretera del Proyecto Chira Piura, colindante al citado canal de regadío. 


Entre los pueblos y sectores que se encuentran aislados figuran La Bayona, Santa Rosa, La Loma, La Chavela, Juan Velasco, María Auxiliadora entre otros, a consecuencia de la falta de mantenimiento de la trocha carrozable que va desde Tres Compuertas hasta La Bayona. Aquí se debieron constru…

HAPAG - LLOYD: ONE OF THE FEW SHIPPING LINES TO TURN A PROFIT IN 2011 ...

Hapag-Lloyd Bucks Industry Trend With 2011 Profit Bruce Barnard, Special Correspondent | Feb 15, 2012 3:37PM GMT The Journal of Commerce Online - News Story  |   | 


German carrier's profit fell 83 percent year-over-year to $133 million Hapag-Lloyd‘s operating profit in 2011 declined 83 percent to $133 million from $770 million in 2010, but the German carrier bucked an industry-wide trend as one of the very few ocean lines to close the year in the black. The container line achieved its main goal of an operating profit in a year “dominated by an unexpectedly aggressive price war in the Far East trade and sharp increases in oil and bunker prices,” said Michael Behrendt, chairman of the Hapag-Llloyd executive board. Revenue dipped 1.8 percent year-over-year to $8.05 billion on exchange rate fluctuations. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization fell to $484 million from $1.2 billion in 2010, according to preliminary figure…

SURAT/RAJKOT: The prolonged winter has brought cheers to mango growers in the state. The chill that has extended till the second week of February has kindled hopes of a bumper mango production in south Gujarat and Junagadh.

"It is not only the cold but intermittent heat of the day time that has helped flowering bloom on the mango trees. If the conditions help from now on, we are in for a treat and I won't be surprised if our state production crosses 10 lakh tones," said NL Patel, dean, horticulture department atNavsari Agriculture University (NAU).

In 2008-2009, there was severe heat followed by few unseasonal showers after the cold spell, which resulted in withering of the flowers before proper fructification.

South Gujarat contributes 60 per cent of the total mangoes grown in the state and rest comes from Junagadh and other parts of Saurashtra.
