El presidente Juan Manuel Santos llegó hasta la línea de frontera y saludó de mano a los guardias venezolanos. Es la primera vez que un jefe de estado visita esa población.






El presidente de la República, Juan Manuel Santos, arribó este martes al corregimiento de Paraguachón, en el departamento de La Guajira, para verificar la situación de la frontera con Venezuela, anunciar medidas de protecciones sociales y económicas, y brindar apoyo a los colombianos deportados.








El Mandatario hizo un recorrido por la zona y dialogó con miembros de la comunidad de esa zona. 







El Jefe del Estado está acompañado por el ministro de la Defensa, Luis Carlos Villegas; la canciller María Ángela Holguín; la ministra de Transporte, Natalia Abello; y el ministro de Vivienda, Luis Felipe Henao. 





De igual forma hacen presencia en la zona el defensor del Pueblo, Jorge Armando Otálora; la directora del Departamento Administrativo de Prosperidad Social, Tatyana Orozco; y el director de la Unidad Nacional para la Gestión de Riesgos, Carlos Iván Márquez.











En un gesto de fraternidad, Santos saludó a los guardias venezolanos que custodian las barricadas. Aunque uno de ellos rechazó el saludo, el presidente lo saludó dándole una palmada en el brazo.











Esta visita a La Guajira ocurre tres días después del sobrevuelo de aviones militares venezolanos en territorio colombiano, a pocos kilómetros del lugar donde a esta hora está el presidente.

THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MANGOES IN THE WORLD ....

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 





The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 




After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.


An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 




The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
