A pesar de los anuncios acerca de que el famoso “carro popular”, producto del acuerdo Venezuela-Irán, en la empresa Venirauto, sería una solución para quienes quieren tener vehículo barato, en la planta ensambladora hay unas mil unidades que se están deteriorando.

La denuncia la hizo el diputado Rodolfo Rodríguez, miembro de la comisión de Contraloría, de la Asamblea Nacional (AN), quien viene realizando una investigación, desde hace meses, en relación con las irregularidades presuntamente cometidas en este convenio.

“Existe un inmenso estacionamiento, que se ve desde la Autopista Regional Centro, donde se amontonan cientos de vehículos ensamblados y acumulados desde 2008, porque le faltan piezas que vienen desde Irán por barco y están deteriorándose, llevando sol, agua y tierra”, explicó el parlamentario.

Rodríguez también denunció que la investigación “ha sido paralizada en la AN”, pese a que una subcomisión de parlamentarios hizo visitas a las inst…

Perú21.- Perú y Ecuador alistan un joint venture (alianza de largo plazo) para explorar petróleo en el lado ecuatoriano de la frontera común, acuerdo que se daría 13 años después de la firma de un tratado de paz que puso fin a más de un siglo de conflicto.

Part Supermarket, Part Date Spot

They say never food-shop on an empty stomach.

They also say the early bird gets the worm.

And never make the first or last out at third base.

But... where were we... oh, right: food-shopping while you’re hungry.

Don’t do it. Ever.


You’re at Gourmet Table, a new market in Coral Gables that stocks imported delicacies and employs on-site chefs... who’re constantly cooking up said delicacies, now soft-open.

A supermarket with test-drives. That’s sort of the gig here. See something that looks good on the shelves and, well, there’s an attached restaurant that’s currently making a dish featuring it. You know, try before you buy.

So what you’re going to want to do is come here with a date. And a shopping list. Start by combing the wooden racks of rare Mediterranean foodstuffs that are on display (think cognac mustard, truffled honey and grapefruit caviar pearls). G…

HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW: Five Coaching Strengths that Produce Champions ...

by Marcie Schorr Hirsch and Therese S. Kinal | 1:00 PM August 8, 2012

This summer's Olympics got us thinking: how do we as managers and leaders become coaches who elicit greatness in others? 

A study of the coach-athlete relationships that yield successful performance, released by the Canadian Olympic Committee in 2010, has some findings worth adapting to the coaching of corporate performers. 

Authored by Penny Werthner, an Olympic athlete herself, the reports reveals that, to produce Olympic champions, coaches must deliver in five critical areas:

#1:  help the athlete cultivate self-awareness

#2:  build a strong coach-athlete relationship

#3:  create an optimal training environment

#4:  provide financial and other support systems

#5:  manage the Olympic environment

Of these key contributions, #2 was cited as "the most crucial factor in winning an Olympic Medal or producing a personal best performance."

In the corporate milieu, we can leverage these findings to encourage stron…

PANAMA CITY, Panama – Following the recommendation from the Board of Directors of the Panama Canal Authority (ACP), the Cabinet Council of the Government of the Republic of Panama approved yesterday the proposal to restructure the Panama Canal’s pricing system. “The new tolls structure was conceived in accordance with the commercial value that the route offers its users.
