Nicaragua recibió 4,251 millones de dólares en cooperación de Venezuela entre el 2008 y el primer semestre del 2015, la mayor parte de los cuales son préstamos preferenciales para la importación de petróleo, informó el Banco Central nicaragüense.

Según el informe, 3,396 millones de dólares corresponden a préstamos otorgados por Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) a Nicaragua; 775 son inversiones dirigidas a proyectos de desarrollo, principalmente de energía, mientras que el resto son donaciones.

Son “créditos concesionales a 25 años de plazo, incluyendo 2 años de gracia y una tasa de interés del 2% anual” que son pagados por el sector privado de Nicaragua, señala un informe sobre cooperación oficial externa del primer semestre del 2015 publicado por el Banco Central.

De acuerdo con el documento, la cooperación total venezolana -entre préstamos e inversiones y donaciones- se desglosa en 461 millones de dólares recibidos en 2008; 484 millones en 2009; 533 millones en 2010; 578 millones en 2011; 728 millones en 2012; 654 millones en 2013 y 620 millones en 2014.

A eso se suman 193 millones de dólares recibidos en el primer semestre de este año, subraya el informe.

Venezuela es el principal cooperante del sector público y privado de Nicaragua, seguido por el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID) y el Banco Mundial, entre otros, destacó la entidad.

Los fondos de la cooperación venezolana son manejados por una empresa privada llamada Albanisa que se creó hace ocho años para canalizar la importación de petróleo de Venezuela.

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 ???

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…
