Re: The Trump Administration

Hmmmm.....interesting developments in DC. Pumpkinhead promised to repeal and replace Obama's health care reforms. There is a Republican in the White House, with Republican majorities in both houses of Congress, and they have trying for years to get rid of Obamacare. Shoulda been easy, right? Donald...

Re: Tompkins Donates 1 million acres

Well, Tompkins always took the 'screw them, they will thank me later' attitude to his project. Hopefully he will be right. My hat is off to the guy for doing far more than just trying. Along the same lines: Tompkins fight to save the wilds of Chile and Argentina despite local opposition Robert Coll...

Re: Tompkins Donates 1 million acres

It was in fact Bachelet's first administration that Tompkins spent millions in legal combat with stopping the road through the park and other court battles. She did everything she could to undermine what he was doing. Found a news item you posted at that time: Highway threatens Chilean preserve cre...

Re: Coyhaique Most Polluted City in the Americas

I just seen this news piece the other day about a town in Brazil, filled with chemical plants, where it rains acid so strong it will burn your skin. That is somehow less polluted? You know from time to time I see these rankings, where Chile is the worst at this, or the worst at that in the World. T...

Re: Wages for locals

Things can change though, not in 5 or 10 years but maybe in 20 or 30 years Brazil will be kicking ass and Chile will be on a downturn. You never know. Yes, you never know. I can think of two countries: Mexico and Argentina. There are probably others. The tragedy of Argentina A century of decline On...

Re: Registering my birth at Registro Civil

Looking at the first two links it seems that the registration part could be done at the Chilean consulate in the UK.

Re: The Trump Administration

So, CNN was banned from Venezuela and the White House in the same week. Interesting symmetry ;-) There are too many parallels between Trumpism and Chavismo already. It might do CNN and the other major news organisations some good though, they were seduced by being able to "embed" reporter...

Re: Bad news for Merken lovers

Does storing spices and seeds in the freezer eliminate the mold issue? Storing spices and seeds in the freezer will prevent the growth of mold, but the article mentions that the toxin was already present in the store-bought merken. The mold produced the toxin before it got to the store. I think tha...
