Arrasó.


 Francisco Arias Cárdenas, abanderado del Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela, se convirtió en el nuevo gobernador del Zulia con el respaldo de 17 de los 21 municipios del estado. En la mayoría con más del 50 por ciento de los votos. 


La victoria en la subregión Guajira, que abarca Mara, Páez y Almirante Padilla rozó en promedio el 70 por ciento de las boletas escrutadas.







La ficha de la revolución pisará el Palacio de los Cóndores sin el respaldo de Ma racaibo, Simón Bolívar, Lagunillas y Francisco Javier Pulgar. Estas cuatro localidades favorecieron a Pablo Pérez, candidato de la M…

Oposición venezolana: ¿Y ahora qué?




diciembre 17, 2012 1:46 pm









Por primera vez en años el mote que le endilga el gobierno del presidente Hugo Chávez se hizo más patente que nunca: la oposición “escuálida” de votos sólo consiguió tres de las 23 gobernaciones venezolanas en los comicios regionales del domingo.





Los opositores, de quienes Chávez destaca su flaca representación, perdieron bastiones clave como el estado petrolero de Zulia y el central de Carabobo.

La única piedra que sigue en el zapato del chavismo es Henrique Capriles, el líder opositor que ganó la relección en el estado central de Miranda, imponiéndose al candidato del gobierno y ex vicepresidente Elías Jaua.







Con el mapa venezolano teñido de rojo, el color que tradicionalmente ha identificado a los seguidores del presidente Chávez, la gran pregunta ahora es que hará la oposición venezolana para sobrevivir y enfrentar una eventual nueva elección presidencial.





Las razones de la derrota opositora, según los analistas, est…

Some Countries Ban GMOs, But Not The United States Of Monsanto ...

America was once the breadbasket for the world. Produce grown in the U.S. fed people across the globe. 




No longer.




Now countries are banning U.S. foods in an effort to spare their citizens from the health hazards of genetically modified foods, also known as genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.






Monsanto leads the way in GMO foods. About 90 percent of all corn, soybeans and cotton are grown from genetically engineered seeds. The genetically modified products are now found in about 70 percent of all American processed food. And Monsanto controls about 90 percent of all genetically engineered seeds.





In other words, Monsanto has almost a complete monopoly on the U.S. food supply. 

It accomplished this by becoming the fourth branch of government. 


There is a revolving door between government regulatory agencies, Congressional staffs and Big Agriculture companies Monsanto, Dow and Bayer. 



Michael Taylor at FDA is a perfect example.

AUSTRALIA CELEBRATES 30 YEARS OF R2E2 MANGO ....

30 years of mango magnificence





Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Minister John McVeigh is encouraging Queenslanders to eat home grown mangoes this summer and appreciate the history behind each bite.




Today at the Brisbane Markets in Rocklea, Mr McVeigh celebrated the R2E2 mango’s 30th year with a few slices.




“Summertime in Queensland wouldn’t be complete without eating a mango or two,” Mr McVeigh said.









“We are the fruit bowl of the nation and the mango is an iconic Queensland fruit.








“Without a doubt one of the best varieties is our very own R2E2, which has become an international success story.








“The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) have been breeding mangoes for a very long time, and in 1982 they struck gold with the R2E2.








“By crossing a Bowen and Kent mango, our researchers came up with a new variety with the same size seed as a Bowen but with a lot more flesh than other varieties.











“This year marks the 30th anniversary of the R2E2, which is now one of Queensland’s be…
