NUZVID/HYDERABAD: Mango, the king of fruits, could become dearer this summer. With the crop in about 40% of the nurseries in Nuzvid region having suffered damage due to adverse weather, the price of the fruit is likely to go through the roof. Consumers may be forced to shell out as much as Rs 200-250 to buy one kg of mango. 

The crop in Ranga Reddy and Medak districts is also hit because of late flowering.

Farmers had been spending sleepless nights in the last three months to save the crop. The Nuzvid region supplies a major chunk of mango to the state. The 'Banginapalle' mango from Nuzvid is the most sought after in the local and international markets. 

According to the latest predictions, the crop yield would come down by at least 40%. While mango is being grown in 64.58 thousand hectares in Krishna district, the yield is expected to be around seven tonnes per hectare against last year's 8-…

Por qué no atrapan al narcotraficante Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán

Por BBC.

Archivo Semana.El "Chapo" Guzmán continúa libre y las razones de ello han dado vida a una serie de hipótesis (y mitos) al respecto.

Hace once años, Joaquín Guzmán Loera -alias "El Chapo"- se fugó del penal de Puente Grande en Jalisco, México. Desde ese momento, la captura del líder del cartel de narcotraficantes de Sinaloa se ha convertido en una de las prioridades de varios gobiernos mexicanos y de Estados Unidos.

Las autoridades lo consideran el traficante de drogas ilícitas más poderoso del mundo, un enemigo "muy inteligente" y, tras la muerte de Osama bin Laden, se encuentra en el primer lugar de la lista de los "más buscados" por el FBI.

Sin embargo, "El Chapo" Guzmán continúa prófugo y las razones de ello han dado vida a una serie de hipótesis (y mitos) al respecto.

An Austrialian Billionaire Has Accused The CIA Of Plotting To Undermine The Australian Economy ...

Billionaire mining magnate Clive Palmer has added "slightly unhinged" to the list of descriptives typically association with his name.

His accusation that the CIA, as well as a "foreign power," are funding the Australian Greens party to cripple the mining industry in his home state of Queensland and undermine the Australian economy.

His statements quickly superseded the news that the Australian Parliament had passed a law imposing 30 percent tax on iron ore and coal miners' profits.

The controversial "Minerals Resource Rent Tax" will come into force on July 1. It is expected to generate 11 billion Australian dollars in the first three years, to be redistributed — the government says — to other segments of the economy.

The tax will apply to a group of around 30 companies that makes 75 million Australian dollars in profits annually and which includes global mining majors such as BHP, Rio Tinto and Xstrata.
