A foreign company was commissioned to finish the railroad that was to begin in 1890 by the engineer João Teixeira Soares. This railroad would connect the cities of São Paulo to Santa Maria, in Rio Grande do Sul state. As Teixeira did not or could not take on the project, the responsibility was transferred in 1908 to the Brazil Railway Company, a north-American company owned by Percival Farquhar.

(Reuters) - Ceva Logistics, majority owned by Apollo Global Management LLC (APO.N), filed with U.S. regulators on Friday to raise up to $400 million in an initial public offering of its common stock.


The United Kingdom-based company told the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in a preliminary prospectus that it intends to list on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "CEVL."

The company is the world's second largest non-asset based supply chain management company, as measured by 2011 revenue, according to the regulatory filing.

El fenómeno de la "superluna", previsto para la noche de este sábado, se manifestó en varios lugares del mundo.Cientos de personas en el globo han permanecido atentas ante su aparición. Algunos astrónomos advirtieron que la luna se acercó a 357.000 kilómetros de la tierra, lo que permite verla 14% más grande.

En Maracaibo, muchos aficionados se mostraron atentas y emocionadas ante el fenómeno. El espectáculo visual se vio opacado, a ratos, por la abundante nubosidad. Sin embargo, a las 10:30 de la noche, pudo apreciarse el astro celeste con gran esplendor y brillo. Algunos amantes de la fotografía se apostaron en la Vereda del Lago y, con equipos listos, capturaron el momento. Otras grupo de cuatro mujeres hicieron un baile o ritual para que la "superluna" apareciera más pronto y les "cumpliera sus deseos". Así se vivió el fenómeno en la capital zuliana:

'Julie' was recognized for its outstanding flavor and its dwarf growth habit. It was introduced to the United States
