Today there are news of a new (implicit) dollar rate (see newspaper) of about 3,00 Bs.F/$. It will be in the market at the same time as the 2,15 rate for ESSENTIAL items and the "free" rate for luxury items, which I estimate will be around 4,30 BsF/$. I PREDICTED this would happen about six month ago and now have proved right...

The other, Venezuela, has a repressive government that has undermined media freedoms, forcibly nationalized industries, rallied opposition to the United States and, recent evidence suggests, supported terrorist groups inside Colombia.
That U.S. unions, human rights groups and now Democrats would focus their criticism and advocacy on the former, to the benefit of the latter, shows how far they have departed from their own declared principles."

Some 20 dramas are aired every week in a country like Korea. There are daily dramas, morning dramas, weekend dramas… and Wednesday-Thursday dramas. Not too different for Latina American countries, but Asia in fact is the new ``kingdom'' of drama series”.
Now there a new series (On Air) portrays how soaps operas are made. Titled On Air, it is a drama about the people who create these dramas.
It was not easy to ask these ladies to guest star, because it might misrepresent them despite the satirical nature of the drama. They are so popular in Asia that some of these stars get 5 and 10 Million US$ per one 16-20 episodes serie. That is a lot of money for TV stars any where.
It is fiction feeding reality and reality feeding fiction…

lo mató la oposición 3%

Robert Mugabe´s government forces on Thursday began cracking down on the main opposition party and foreign journalists -- raising fears of a political crisis -- just hours after officials announced another delay in releasing results of last weekend's election. Zimbabwean government forces Thursday began cracking down on the main opposition party, raising fears of a political crisis, according to witnesses and an opposition spokesman.
New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller confirmed that Barry Bearak, a Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondent based in Johannesburg, South Africa, was taken into custody. The forces raided at least two hotels in the capital, including one that houses foreign journalists, a witness told CNN. Four journalists "unaccredited" by the Zimbabwean government were taken away, he said.
Just a pair of trash celebrities...
