¡ESTE DESCARADO TIENE SU FORTUNA EN SUIZA! Cabello insta a Obama a congelar cuentas de venezolanos en USA

Dolar Today II / Mar 7, 2014 @ 9:00 am










El presidente de la Asamblea Nacional (AN), Diosdado Cabello, manifestó este jueves el apoyo irrestricto del Parlamento a la decisión del presidente Nicolás Maduro de romper relaciones diplomáticas con Panamá.






Cabello indicó que el gobierno panameño ha tenido una agresión constante contra el país “al tratar de arrodillar a Venezuela ante la OEA”.




 “Estados Unidos no va a meter sus garras en Venezuela, ni directa ni inderectamente, a través de la OEA que es un organismo desprestigiado”, agregó durante una rueda de prensa en las afueras del Parlamento.





Además, se refirió a las posibles acciones que pudiera tomar EE UU contra Venezuela por la represión que los organismos del Estado han tenido contra las manifestaciones de estudiantes y sociedad civil.





“Ayer el Senado norteamericano en una resolución trata de intimidar el gobierno venezolano. Nos resbala todo lo que diga el Congreso norteamericano, no le rendimos cuenta a ellos, pueden agarrar su resoluci…

by Tim Linden | March 07, 2014





The mango industry continues to marvel at how supplies continue to increase yet the market remains strong. 



The numbers tell the story. 


According to the National Mango Board, mango consumption per capita in the United States increased by about one-third from 2005 to 2012, which is the last year that per capita consumption numbers were available.




In 2012, more than 800 million pounds of mangos were imported into the United States.




 Last year, the number of imports topped 900 million pounds. 



With similar growth this year, 1 billion pounds is within reach… or at least on the near horizon.









According to the National Mango Board, mango consumption per capita in the United States increased by about one-third from 2005 to 2012.






Ronnie Cohen, vice president of sales and one of the founding partners of Vision Import Group, River Edge, NJ, believes growth in the category will continue unabated for the next decade. And he believes the potential is there for more than 20 y…

So Long, California Drought? U.S.A. Issues El Niño Watch

Heavy rains caused mudslides on Feb. 6, 2010, in La Cañada Flintridge, Calif.











Next winter could be radically different for Americans. The U.S. Climate Prediction Center has issued an El Niño watch, forecasting the possible arrival of the periodic phenomenon in which warming of the Pacific Ocean triggers dramatic weather changes for Australia and the Americas.






Past El Niño events have brought heavy rain and flooding to California and made winter far warmer—with less snow—in the Midwest and Northeast. Based on Pacific Ocean temperature readings, the center predicts a 52 percent chance of an El Niño occurring this summer.



“There are still dominoes that have to fall here,” Michelle L’Heureux, a climate scientist at the center, told Bloomberg News. 






“This is not a guarantee, but certainly we’re issuing this watch so folks have a heads-up.”






The impact of an El Niño depends on how intense the water-warming effect …

FOCUS ON RETAIL : Albertsons Parent Cerberus to Buy Safeway

PLEASANTON, Calif. March 7, 2014 (AP)

Safeway has agreed to be acquired by an investment group led by Cerberus Capital Management, the owner several supermarket chains.




The acquisition is worth about $7.64 billion in cash, and pending other transactions could top more than $9 billion.




The deal, announced late Thursday, will bring together Safeway and Albertsons. Cerberus last year had bought the Albertsons stores it didn't already own from Supvalu Inc., along with four other Supervalu chains.



It comes amid ongoing consolidation in the supermarket industry, which is facing growing competition from big-box retailers, specialty chains, drug stores and even dollar stores. Kroger Co., a key competitor, recently snapped up regional chain Harris Teeter.





Safeway said in February that it was looking into putting itself up for sale. The Pleasanton, Calif.-based company has been trying to adapt for some time to increased competition and r…
