Sugar Shortage in Venezuela Now Closes Down Coca-Cola Plant

The economy in Venezuela is on the edge of imploding and taking with it the lives of its citizens because of the widespread food shortages. There have already been reports of looting and violence in the streets, as the locals wait for hours to get whatever food is shipped in.
President Maduro refuses to look at the reality of his sinking country and blames the U.S. for the present circumstances that they are in. Expert Norka Luque sees his government has been more critical of the U.S. than even Chavez who was the previous president.

Sugar Shortages Affect Everyone

Coco-Cola announced today on that the production of COKE would have to halt due to the shortage of sugar that Venezuela is now experiencing, and the U.S. company will be forced to pick up the shortage in their plants. Diet Coke will not be affected.

In April, the largest drink plant in Venezuela called Empresas Polar stopped production of beer because they could not get the necessary ingredient barley.

A 60-day state of emergency was also imposed last month by President Maduro. It gave police and soldiers added authority, but many citizens said this doesn’t help their need for food and necessities, and the situation gets worse every day.

Latin American governments along with the Obama administration are backing the actions of former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero in defusing the growing tense attitudes that have come to a standoff.

Delicious Fine Dining Options for Your Dog

As a dog owner, there is nothing more in the world that I want to do than provide my dog’s with complete, delicious and nutritional meals that they keep running back for every day. I have dogs of various ages in my household, and since they’re all rescues I want to make sure each and every last one of their meals is enjoyable and fulfilling.

The puppies that we tend to take it always chow down without hesitation on the Beneful Dry Dog Food Healthy Puppy with Real Chicken. Whenever I set down the bowls the pups are clamoring over one another just for a bite. There is never a single morsel left in the bottom of the bowl!
For more active of my mutts, I have recently started service them Beneful Playful Life since the high protein and high nutritional content promotes strong muscles in active dogs. I also enjoy ensuring that their daily treat of Beneful Wet Dog Food Chicken Stew or the Beef and Chicken Medley is on a plate to accompany their dry food. (see,
Last but not least, to accompany my dogs meals and healthy lifestyles, I like to ensure that I also have their teeth cared for (in between trips to the Vet for a dental cleaning of course). I have recently started using Nestle Purinastore‘s Beneful Healthy Smile Dental Ridges to help maintain my dogs dental health in between visits. I have been noticing that these treats really help with reducing and the tartar build up that all dogs eventually experience. This really helps with their stinky dog breath for when they’re snuggled up tight with me on the couch panting into my face! On a more serious note though, these chews really caught my eye since they don’t only help with fresh breath and plaque, but they also have added calcium in the recipe to help support strong teeth and bones!
As a dog owner, lover, and rescuer there is nothing more important to me than the happiness of my furry family. I am a firm believer that happiness does indeed start in their bellies.

Venezuela ordered to pay for nationalizing ranches

Venezuela has been ordered to pay a British cattle company restitution for seizing its land and cattle in 2005, according to a Reuters article. The International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes, made the ruling last week. It said the Venezuelan government must pay Vestey Group $100 million. Vestey Group had been operating in Venezuela since the early 1900s and had vast land and cattle holdings in Venezuela before they were taken by the government.
“This comes at a bad time for the South American county that seems to be facing one financial crisis after another” says Danilo Diaz Granados. Venezuela has for years lived well on oil, but tumbling oil prices, along with many failed socialistic programs, has the county on the verge of major financial crisis.

Then president Hugo Chavez used the military to seize large ranches in 2005, and nationalized them. He also wanted to repopulate rural areas. Chavez nationalized other things like steel and energy industries, and has landed the county in several international disputes as a result.

Chavez handed the land over to farmers who tried to grow crops, but they were wiped out by floods. Critics had warned that the low land areas where the big ranches were located were only suitable for cattle to start with.

Lawyers for Venezuela said they would seek to get the award annulled or at least pat of it. That has been the government’s response to several claims being filed by companies who had their assets nationalized.

What the Future Holds for Venezuela

Venezuela has commemorated another anniversary of the 2002 attempted coup against the then president, the late Hugo Chavez. The coup attempt happened on April 11, 2002 and ended on April 13. As reported by teleSUR, a new Truth, Justice, and Victims Reparation Commission was launched by President Nicolas Maduro on Tuesday April 12, 2016.
The new Commission is intended to shed more light on the allegations of human rights violations, undermining of democracy in the country and prevention of coups according to a report by Norka Luque. The Commission is also tasked to investigate the 2014 guarimbas, violent opposition blockades, which led to the death of 43 people.

Ernesto Samper, who is the UNASUR General Secretary, was at the Presidential Palace in Miraflores during the launch of the Commission. He confirmed his support of the initiative and he will be accompanying the Commission as it carries out its duties. He spoke of how the Commission offers a good path of dialogue, reparation of the victims and guarantee that the past mistakes will not be repeated in the future.

The Commission has representations from every political side. The opposition, which includes Luque has the super majority in the National Assembly, has four representatives. Maduro has urged the opposition to work with the Commission for it to achieve its goals. The country’s Vice President, Aristobulo Isturiz, will be coordinating the operations of the Commission. Maduro said that Isturiz is experienced enough to coordinate the Commission because he has first-hand experience of the country’s past circumstances.

Impacting Business and Charity

Different people have tried coming up with different theories to explain success. Sanjay Shah has been able to explain it in his way. By impacting both the corporate world and charity positively, Shah has been able to earn the reputation of a successful man. His success in business is explained by Solo Capital and the other range of firms that he owns in London. Solo Capital is based in London too. This company is specializing in services that include financial consultation. It has been in the industry for six years now, in the fiscal year 2015, Solo Capital made impressive returns. However, those were Sanjay shah’s contributions and efforts. He retired from the company’s leadership early 2016.

This man, Shah, shocked many when he told PR Newswire that he never had any academic training in financial management. Shah studied medicine and not finance. Many people have expected to hear that Shah has a Ph.D. in accountancy or financial management. This is not the case since the only training that he has is that of working as a doctor. The amount of success evident from his companies is what makes it hard to believe him when he says that he did not study finance. Shah stated that he just began working in banks after his studies, and that is where he earned the experience.

Shah is the first millionaire to think of funding a program that would create awareness of autism. Autism is a new condition and is not known to many members of the society. Shah got to understand a lot of issues concerning autism after his son was diagnosed. The diagnosis gave Shah the push to think of something that could help not only his son but all the kids who could be suffering without their parents knowing. Autism Rocks work through concerts. These concerts are held in many cities. Musicians and other artists have joined hands in helping Shah with Autism Rocks. The organization was started after Shah had a cup of coffee with Snoop Doggy, who was the first artist to chip into the project. Many artists are joining Autism Rocks, and it is spreading through the world.

It is a financial corporation run solely by women. Morrison serves as managing director and chief compliance officer at the firm.
