El hospital Cimeq de La Habana, donde podría ser operado el presidente Hugo Chávez, es la joya del sistema de salud de Cuba y ha tenido entre sus pacientes al líder Fidel Castro pero también a otros cubanos que sufren enfermedades complejas.

El Cimeq, o Centro de Investigaciones Médico Quirúrgicas, está situado en el oeste de La Habana y en él estuvo internado una larga temporada Fidel Castro luego de que sufriera en julio de 2006 una grave crisis de salud que lo llevó a entregarle el mando a su hermano Raúl.

En él fue operado Chávez el año pasado por un tumor canceroso, según se constató en los videos transmitidos entonces por la televisión cubana, y este lunes o martes debe ser sometido ahí a otra cirugía para extirparle una nueva "lesión" en la misma zona en que se le extrajo el tumor en 2011, según dijo el propio mandatario.

A very useful tool that EMEX (Mexican Mango Exporters Association) publishes is the breakdown by Variety and size.


This helps marketers understand what sizes need to be moved and what sizes deserve a premium in the marketplace.


Week 8 update tells us that over 90% of all Mexican mangoes are Ataulfo variety.


It also tells us that the predominant sizing is running 14, 16, 18, 20 % 22 count, peaking on 18 count fruit.


The redskin mangoes are starting up.


Almost 5% of imports are Tommy Atkins and almost 4% are Haden variety.


In the next month, these will be the predominant varieties in the marketplace.


So far, only 75,750 (4kg) cartons of Tommy Atkins variety have been shipped to the USA market with sizes peaking on 8s, 9s, and 10s.




Hadens are peaking on 9s, 10s and 12s with only 52,897 cartons shipped so far this season.




Overall, Mexico is outpacing Peru on a we…
