The game they play:

The Manipulations of the Public Opinions

Trump tries to deflect the public attention from the Elections 2016Russia” (and several “significant others”, do not miss this, it is very important) Scandal, by creating the “Biblical Children Border Crisis“, and Comey tries to deflect the unprecedented FBI criticism during his tenure by exploiting this crisis, (and “quite sincerely”, don’t get me wrong).

The name of the game is the same: to get the edge over the opponent in the court of the public opinion, and this looks very much like a political – ideological struggle. The phenomenon of “politicization” is ubiquitous and inescapable, that’s how it looks.

“Public opinion is a reed that moves with the wind. The rule of law is a rock that keeps us free”, said Judge Andrew Napolitano. Sounds about right.

Todo tiene su final, nada dura para siempre,
Tenemos que recordar que no existe eternidad,
Como el lindo clavel solo quiso florecer,
Enseñarnos su belleza y marchito perecer,
Todo tiene su final nada dura para siempret
Tenemos que recordar que no existe eternidad.
Como el campeon mundial dio su vida por llegar
Y perder lo mas querido en nada mas otro mas,
E alalelelelele todo tiene su final ,(todo tiene su final es el coro), coro,
Si no me quieres dimelo ahora, coro,
A mi velorio no venga a llorar no no, coro,
Hay mamita rica, coro,
Yo sabia que un dia tenia que acabar, coro,
Punto final todo se acabo, coro, echa pa lante mama.
Yo perdi lo mas querido cuando perdi a mi mama,
Coro, pero segui pa lante y pa lante, coro,
Has como yo nunca eche pa tras, coro,
Ni pa coger impulso que va, coro,
Cuidao que de espalda te pueden atacar, coro,
Oigo una vos que me dice, coro,
Cuidao tierra va a temblar, tierra va a temblar.

Marc Anthony – Todo tiene su final

Everything has its end – Marc Anthony

Everything has its end, nothing lasts forever,
We have to remember that there is no eternity,
As the cute carnation just wanted to bloom,
Teach us its beauty and withered to perish,
Everything has its end nothing lasts forever
We have to remember that there is no eternity.
As the world champion gave his life to come
And lose the most loved in nothing else but more,
E alalelelelele everything has its end, (everything has its end is the chorus), chorus,
If you do not want to tell me now, chorus,
To my wake do not come to mourn no no, chorus,
There are rich mommy, chorus,
I knew that one day I had to finish, chorus,
End point everything is over, chorus, check out mom.
I lost the most loved when I lost my mom,
Chorus, but I continued pa lante and pa lante, chorus,
You have like me never take pa, chorus,
I do not even take impulse that goes, chorus,
I take care that back can attack you, choir,
I hear a voice that tells me, chorus,
Careful earth will tremble, earth will tremble.

What is this: stupidity, incompetence, or both?

Or something significantly more than that? Let me express my humble opinion very claro, my friends:

Fire Rodriguez-Velez from the DOJ, and fire Carlos Cases from the FBI, and investigate them to the heart of their bones!

This is long overdue in both cases, it seems to me. No puns or jokes are intended. Zis iz no djok. 

And by the way, I think that they are the “Russian spies” themselves. In my humble opinion. 

I also have to say, for the sake of balance and objectivity, and according to my observations and impressions, that under the current PR FBI Directorship of Mr. Leff, the things appear to be somewhat more normal and healthier, if only and mostly superficially and on a surface. Hopefully, this is just the beginning. PR branch of the FBI plays an enormously important role in the Island’s political, social, and cultural lives, and the quality of its leadership is definitely a factor in the Island’s development. 

The deeper changes might be determined by the weightier historical and socio-economic factors. The interesting question is if the FBI should be tasked with the relatively long (10-20-30 years) term assessment, prognostications,  and “planning”.

The Case Of Francisco Caparros – Puerto Rico News – Front Page

Quote:

“In the current case, former expert Francisco J. Reyes Caparrós, who is a veteran with partial disability now turned into a lawyer, alleges to have been the victim of a pattern of hostility while working in the local office of the federal prosecutor’s office, which included among other things that prevented him from doing the functions for which he had been hired,

discredited him, was the object of an unfounded campaign that he could be a Russian spy,

implemented disciplinary actions against him, threatened him with negative evaluations, isolated him from other colleagues, and eventually they will highlight him.”

“When the officer with a gun and a badge is no different from the trafficker peddling drugs in the street, we all suffer. That is why the U.S. Attorney’s Office and our law enforcement partners are determined to root out corruption, wherever and in whatever forms it may be found,” Rosa Emilia Rodríguez-Vélez, U.S. Attorney for the District of Puerto Rico, said in a statement.

My Comment: 

When one of the highly placed law enforcement officers spreads the false rumors about “being the Russian spy” and prevents the good honest worker from doing his job, she is no different from the street rumors monger, and we all suffer. Look into the mirror, Ms. Rodriguez-Velez. I think you should resign or be fired. The same I will say about Carlos Cases, I think he has a long tail of misdeeds in Puerto Rico: resign or be fired. And I will say it again: Investigate both of them in the most thorough and exhaustive fashion. Enough is enough. They did a lot of wrong to Puerto Rico, they share their part of the responsibility for the current crisis, including the endemic corruption in law enforcement, and no pretty phrases and “responsible talk” will hide it. Fire them, and others who have to be fired, and investigate them. Bring in good new people.

ISLA EN SU TINTA

Por Eduardo Lalo

Hubo dos marchas, al igual que el año pasado. El primero de mayo, me uní a decenas de miles de ciudadanos y caminé con ellos desde la Universidad hasta la Milla de Oro, donde coincidieron otras muchedumbres venidas de distintos puntos de la ciudad.

En una sociedad tan dividida y compartamentalizada como la nuestra, una marcha multitudinaria refuerza los lazos comunes. Ciudadanos de distintos orígenes y edades, acaparan una avenida con paso lento. En la marcha, como en pocas ocasiones, se vive el placer de pertenecer a una comunidad. Millares han salido de sus casas; millares están a nuestro lado porque sienten, piensan, padecen, resisten, igual que nosotros. En una marcha multitudinaria, es imposible sentirse solo.

Así llegamos a la Milla de Oro. Así llegaron allí otros ríos de gente. Nos sorprendió encontrar la tarima ubicada en un lugar inapropiado para una concentración de esta magnitud. Luego nos enteraríamos que, para dividir a los asistentes, el sitio había sido impuesto por la Policía. Una parte del gentío se congregaba en la avenida Roosevelt y la otra en la más estrecha Ponce de León. Ninguna de las partes podía verse. La Policía sentaba las bases para que la marcha se transmutara espacialmente en dos. Después se añadiría el elemento del tiempo: cuando acabara la primera, se daría la señal para que comenzara la segunda.

Camino a la Milla de Oro, vi las primeras señales ominosas. La cantidad de policías era una marcha en sí misma. Centenares de agentes portando equipamientos militarizados cercaban a la multitud. La cola de la manifestación era acompañada por al menos 25 motocicletas y una guagua. La exhibición de fuerza era desmesurada, la toma de la zona parecía una escena de un golpe de Estado y resultaba ridícula y una verdadera agresión dado el talante evidentemente cívico de los marchantes. ¿Por quién nos tomaban? La pregunta debió surgir en miles de mentes que percibían policías con cascos, coderas, rodilleras, chalecos, armas, que los convertían en una suerte de cíborgs oscuros. Ya aquí seguramente estaba el plan, el diseño de la segunda marcha.

La concentración del primero de mayo, por segundo año consecutivo, era un éxito. A pesar de la desesperanza, del golpe dado a la ciudadanía por múltiples reformas, a pesar del huracán, estábamos allí y éramos muchos. El Puerto Rico que desea una sociedad mejor seguía vivo.

Pasado el mediodía, la primera marcha, la que nos perteneció, había terminado. Junto a un grupo de personas caminé un buen trecho hasta encontrar un restaurante abierto. Allí todas las mesas estaban ocupadas por gente que había marchado y había un televisor. Asistimos allí a la segunda marcha, transmitida en vivo y, sospechosamente, sin comerciales. No creo que esos canales hayan sustituido sus programas del mediodía por la cobertura de los discursos y actos artísticos de la primera marcha.

Durante casi una hora, filas de policías militarizados bloquearon la ruta a un grupo de manifestantes vestidos de negro, portando palos y escudos caseros. En la mañana, habían caminado cerca de mí y era posible que no llegaran a ser 50. Poseían una curiosa mezcla de marcialidad aficionada, exceso de testosterona y espíritu deportivo. Algunos iban sin camisa, alardeando de una musculatura que de poco serviría ante un policía cubierto de armaduras. Si su ambición era derrotar el sistema, como indicaban sus consignas, el tamaño de su fuerza y el aficionismo de sus medios los condenaban. Además, dada su informalidad, serían un grupo fácil de infiltrar y manipular. Al igual que el año pasado, se convertirían en personajes de un espectáculo transmitido en vivo, que sería la representación de su entrampamiento. Durante horas, se pasearon con sus armas de pacotilla frente a cientos de policías, sin que éstos intervinieran. La escena culminante tenía un momento asignado y, por ello, en la tarde, dos grupos de policías les cerrarían el paso en puntos opuestos de la Milla de Oro.

La confrontación no llegó a los 30 segundos. En menos de 15, los escudos estaban en el suelo. En la conjunción de este espacio-tiempo, en este kairós, se daba el momento culminante de esta escaramuza de diseño. Su héroe fue el anónimo agente que apretó el gatillo del primer gas lacrimógeno. Luego vino el bombardeo, las balas de goma, los macanazos.

En el restaurante, veíamos la “película” de la segunda marcha y, un poco más tarde, la conferencia de prensa de Rosselló y Pesquera que convertían en víctimas a la Policía y en victimarios a los manifestantes entrampados y utilizados, dirigidos, mediante infiltración u otros medios, a crear una escena violenta. Las razones de la marcha se enturbiaban. Los cierres de escuelas, el aumento del costo de la Universidad, las violencias de la reforma laboral, las reducciones propuestas a las pensiones, la corrupción en las contrataciones, los salarios inverosímiles de los funcionarios, eran sustituidos por la imagen de un pedazo de adoquín en la mano del gobernador. En política importa más la percepción que la realidad, y en este caso esta imagen parecía sacada de un libreto y me llevaba a preguntarme si la piedra no estaría ya desde el día antes en La Fortaleza, gracias a los servicios de una agencia de publicidad.

Mientras tanto, la Policía provista con armas verdaderas, y no con escudos de madera comprimida, invadió en masa a Santa Rita. Los vídeos de su ataque muestran una falta de disciplina y un revanchismo alarmantes. Desprovistos de órdenes de arresto, violentaron residencias, golpearon, llenaron estrechas calles residenciales con nubes de gases tóxicos. Fueron la imagen viva del hombre convertido en lobo del hombre. Nada dijeron de esto ni el gobernador ni su jefe policiaco.

El resultado de estos acontecimientos es el que sigue. A pesar de las campañas mediáticas y la propaganda del gobierno y sus compañeros de ruta, una profunda indignación, unida a un extenso escepticismo, laten en las mentes de decenas de millares. La crisis de credibilidad del gobierno no está sólo en Washington, sino también en las mentes de los puertorriqueños. Pretender transformar la incertidumbre, los desacuerdos, la oposición, el dolor y el civismo duradero y manifiesto de lo que constituye sin duda la mayoría del pueblo, en una imagen trillada y caricaturesca de violencia y anarquía, sería un acto vil, que demostraría a qué extremos estaría dispuesto a llegar el gobierno para imponer sus decisiones. Y esto, luego de la segunda marcha del primero de mayo de este cuatrienio, se resume quizá en una irresistible inclinación a la mentira. Esta ya no sería una reacción incidental, sino una política de Estado, quizá la primordial, quizá la única. La realidad importaría menos que su manipulación. Algún estratega estaría dispuesto a convencernos de que el pedazo de adoquín en manos del gobernador causa más daño que los macanazos, que la carga de una jauría de guardias, que una generosa rociada de gas pimienta, que una vistosa nube roja de gases lacrimógenos. Se pretendería hacer creer que esta semana no hubo una injustificada y, a la vez probablemente buscada y diseñada, violencia de Estado.

La comparecencia ante la prensa del gobernador y el jefe de la Policía, sería un escándalo si días antes tuvieron en sus escritorios el diseño de lo que iba a pasar; si de alguna manera miembros del gobierno contribuyeron para que la poderosa marcha de la mañana fuera convertida en la patraña de la tarde. No lo sé, pero en miles de puertorriqueños ya existe la duda.

Con apenas año y medio cumplido de su mandato, el gobierno de Ricardo Rosselló profundiza su crisis de credibilidad. Por 16 meses pudo beneficiarse de la buena disposición de muchos ciudadanos, pero ahora se encuentra peligrosamente cerca de que se perciba o se suponga su complicidad con actos y estrategias rayanas en lo seriamente inapropiado. Luego de este primero de mayo, está a un paso de ser percibido como un adversario hostil, como el hombre convertido en lobo del hombre.

Saved Stories – None: Otro republicano muestra apoyo a estadidad de Puerto Rico
 

Otro funcionario republicano manifestó su respaldo a que a Puerto Rico le sea otorgada la estadidad.

Sin embargo Rob Bishop, miembro de la Cámara de Representantes por Utah, indicó el viernes que el territorio estadounidense primero deberá tener una vibrante economía y un gobierno estable. La isla trata de restructurar una parte de sus más de $70,000 millones de deuda pública y atraviesa una recesión desde hace 11 años.

Bishop visitó la isla con la representante de Puerto Rico en el Congreso, Jenniffer González, que lo consideró un gran aliado mientras la isla batalla por recuperarse del paso del huracán María. No obstante, el gobernador Ricardo Rosselló ha tenido roces con Bishop, y su oficina señaló que el gobernador no pudo reunirse con el congresista puesto que su agenda estaba llena el viernes.

Bishop agregó que sostendrá una audiencia de supervisión para ayudar a que la junta de control federal que revisa las finanzas de la isla sea más eficiente. El republicano es presidente del Comité de Recursos Naturales de la Cámara de Representantes, que tiene jurisdicción sobre todos los territorios estadounidenses.

Bishop se dijo recientemente frustrado por lo que llamó la “incapacidad y negativa” de la junta por llegar a acuerdos de reestructuración con los acreedores.

Bishop hizo sus declaraciones días después que el gobernador de Florida, Rick Scott, también manifestara su apoyo a la estadidad de Puerto Rico.

Saved Stories – None: Mayors look for how to defend themselves before the Board
 

Members of the Association of Mayors met with the president of the Board of Fiscal Supervision (JSF), José Carrión , with the aim of presenting proposals that result in the benefits sought by the municipalities: savings and additional income under a new model of operation.

Subsequently, the associate executives met with the board of directors of the Federation of Mayors , headed by its president and vice president, Carlos Molina and Noé Marcano, respectively, to share the results of the conclave, in what is a municipal offensive to face the crisis without depend on the central government through a direct approach to the JSF.

The aim, said the mayors interviewed, is to create consensus proposals.

On the whole

“(We are working) to take the proposals together, both to the governor (Ricardo Rosselló) and the Fiscal Oversight Board and the Legislature,” the president of the Association of Mayors and municipal executive of Cayey, Rolando , told El Nuevo Día Ortiz

“We want to see municipalities beyond the partisan possibilities. We want to show that we want to be part of the solution in the fiscal crisis that the country is experiencing. We believe that municipalities can be the alternative to the crisis, “added Ortiz, who represents the mayors affiliated with the Popular Democratic Party (PPD).

As an example, he said that the municipalities of Coamo, Cayey, Salinas and Villalba have an agreement – a year ago – to jointly manage the planning and permitting area.

“This alliance has produced profits, reduced expenses and streamlined permits. Now, after a year, we will do the same with human resources, the CRIM (Center for Municipal Revenue Collection) and finance, “explained the mayor.

Este diario buscó la reacción de la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, pero no hubo respuesta al cierre de esta edición.

Buscan garantía

Tanto Ortiz como Marcano indicaron que buscarán una “garantía” del gobierno central en torno al nuevo modelo de operación de los ayuntamientos.

“Para que el gobierno central, una vez vea los beneficios en los municipios, después no los quiera quitar”, sostuvo Marcano.

La expectativa de los alcaldes es reunirse nuevamente con la JSF en una fecha cercana.

At the moment, the municipalities were removed, among other things, the State subsidy, and new austerity measures are latent, such as the creation of counties, which is not endorsed by the mayors. Although initially rejected the proposal, the JSF finally endorsed the creation of counties in the new certified fiscal plan of the central government. In essence, it is a proposal to regionalize various services.

This was not the first meeting of mayors with the JSF, although the last time was with the executive director of the agency, Natalie Jaresko, and “it was not so productive,” said the mayors.

Saved Stories – None: Rosselló entrega títulos de propiedad junto al senador Bill Nelson
 

Using slogans from the electoral campaigns of yesteryear, Housing Secretary Fernando Gil Enseñat delivered this afternoon, along with Governor  Ricardo Rosselló , property titles and vouchers for Plan 8 in an activity in San Juan.

In front of about a hundred citizens, Gil Enseñat reminded the audience that he is part of the “can generation” and is one of those who thinks that “a better Puerto Rico is to come” . Both are phrases coined by the former governor of the New Progressive Party (PNP) Pedro Rosselló González, who participated in the activity held at the Convention Center of the Association of Organized Police.

At the meeting, 62 property titles were delivered and, personally, 110 vouchers of Plan 8 out of a total of 300 authorized.

Gil Enseñat said that so far this year, the Department of Housing has delivered 180 property titles and in the next two months will be 304 more, which would exceed the total property titles delivered by the agency last four years .

“That cries before the eyes of God,” he said.

During the activity he addressed the public, for a brief period in Spanish, Florida Senator Bill Nelson , who tries to captivate the Puerto Rican electorate in Florida in an effort to defend his seat before the challenge of the state governor, Rick Scott. The election will be on November 6.

Al tomar la palabra, Nelson mostró pesar por los puertorriqueños que todavía no tienen energía eléctrica a casi ocho meses del pasado del huracán María. 

Dijo que era una situación “inaceptable” y que se debe modernizar el sistema eléctrico de Puerto Rico.

Rosselló describió a Nelson como un “amigo” y un “gran aliado” de Puerto Rico y resaltó como Nelson visitó la isla después del huracán María.

“Fue clave en conseguir recursos para la recuperación”, dijo Rosselló para entonces pedir un aplauso para el congresista.

Rosselló se reunió el 23 de abril con Scott en Puerto Rico.

The governor clarified in an aside with the press that land titles were not delivered in flood areas. For his part, Gil Enseñat indicated that it seeks to accelerate the process of delivery of property titles. Each one costs the agency between $ 500 and $ 750 for the required notary process.

In part, Gil Enseñat announced that a list was opened for up to 600 citizens to apply for Plan 8 vouchers and that Puerto Ricans currently living in the United States as a result of Hurricane Maria are expected to benefit.

Saved Stories – None: El congresista Rob Bishop condiciona su apoyo a la estadidad
 

La proclamación del presidente del Comité de Recursos Naturales de la Cámara de Representantes estadounidense, Rob Bishop, a favor de la estadidad para Puerto Rico vino acompañada de unos requisitos mínimos como una “economía vibrante” y “un gobierno fiscalmente sólido” en la isla, que actualmente está bajo un proceso de bancarrota territorial.

Es decir, para que se acepte la anexión de Puerto Rico como estado, el panorama fiscal y económico de la isla debe ser diametralmente opuesto al que ha existido desde el 2006 con la depresión económica, las deficiencias presupuestarias y los impagos a los acreedores.

“Antes que el status cambie deben cambiar algunos asuntos como tener una economía vibrante, un gobierno estable que es fiscalmente sólido. Eso es esencial”, dijo Bishop en una conferencia de prensa en San Juan junto a la comisionada residente en Washington Jenniffer González, quien veía el asunto de manera distinta.

González insistía en que para alcanzar la mejoría económica de la isla tenía que concederse primero la anexión de Puerto Rico como estado.

“La estadidad es la única forma en que Puerto Rico puede salir de esta situación económica. Si tuviéramos los votos en la Cámara y en el Senado, muchos de los asuntos fiscales y financieros que estamos enfrentando serían cosas del pasado”, dijo la comisionada residente.

Se trata de una expresión similar a la que hizo Carlos “Johnny” Méndez, el presidente de la Cámara de Representantes de Puerto Rico, tras reunirse con Bishop en la mañana de ayer.

Bishop, tras escuchar las expresiones de los funcionarios locales, insistía en su afirmación.

“Tenemos que entender que se deben tomar pasos para llegar a eso (la estadidad), que no necesariamente son pasos fáciles. La viabilidad (económica) de esta isla es uno de esos componentes críticos”, reiteró Bishop, cuya comisión tiene jurisdicción sobre el status de Puerto Rico.

El gobernador Ricardo Rosselló Nevares también tenía su propia perspectiva. Al reaccionar a las expresiones del congresista, el mandatario argumentó que la estadidad “no puede ser condicionada a consideraciones fiscales o económicas”.

La visita de Bishop que se extendía al menos hasta hoy, sábado, era de carácter oficial e incluía reuniones con líderes del sector privado, políticos y ejecutivos de algunas corporaciones públicas, como la Autoridad de Energía Eléctrica. En la agenda del congresista no estaba una reunión con Rosselló Nevares. Ambos políticos han tenido enfrentamientos públicos en los últimos meses debido a interpretaciones opuestas a la ley Promesa.

Según la comisionada residente, el gobernador tenía la agenda “muy apretada”. La agenda que ayer tenía Rosselló Nevares, incluía la entrega de títulos de propiedad junto al senador demócrata de Florida, Bill Nelson, quien actualmente ocupa el escaño que quiere Rick Scott, el gobernador republicano de Florida.

Nuevo proyecto de status

Un posible punto medio parecía concretarse con un nuevo proyecto de ley en el Congreso que tras un proceso de transición podría llevar a Puerto Rico a una anexión con los Estados Unidos.

González no precisó detalles de la medida. Indicó que están trabajando en conversaciones para que la propuesta tenga apoyo de demócratas y republicanos en la Cámara de Representantes y el Senado estadounidense.

Bishop respaldó este esfuerzo porque, a su entender, podría llevar a la isla a que se reúnan las condiciones que hagan viable la estadidad para Puerto Rico. Según el congresista republicano por Utah, este status político debió “desde hace mucho tiempo” ser la solución al problema de las relaciones políticas entre Puerto Rico y los Estados Unidos.

“En el caso de Utah, que debió ser estado 40 años antes de lo que pudo serlo. Algunas veces tienes que pasar unas precondiciones para que Washington (la capital estadounidense) acepte”, dijo el republicano.

El problema de receptividad de la estadidad, dijo Bishop, está principalmente en el Senado federal. Allí, afirmó, no se entiende bien el tema puertorriqueño, en comparación con la Cámara de Representantes, que suele ser más receptiva.

“Por eso, es importante que tengan líderes allí que entiendan el tema puertorriqueño”, dijo Bishop justo antes de hacer referencia al gobernador Scott, quien aspira a convertirse en senador por ese estado.

Rivalidad política

Los desencuentros entre Bishop y el gobernador se intensificaron a finales de marzo cuando el congresista les envió una carta a los miembros de la JSF expresando su frustración porque, como organismo que controla las finanzas de Puerto Rico, no había promovido un diálogo con los acreedores del gobierno, ni había reclamado suficiente transparencia al gobierno.

Rosselló Nevares contestó los argumentos de Bishop con una misiva en lo exhortaba a que velara por los intereses de los puertorriqueños y no solo de los bonistas del gobierno.

Semanas después, Bishop, volvía a reclamarle a la JSF que impusiera medidas estructurales y fiscales duras sobre Puerto Rico y recordaba los amplios poderes que el Congreso le había dado al organismo que controla las finanzas del gobierno territorial.

Sus expresiones iban a la médula del debate que en ese momento se desarrollaba sobre las medidas fiscales y estructurales que debía contener el plan fiscal. El gobernador rechazaba la imposición de cualquier medida que no fuera estrictamente fiscal, especialmente los recortes en las pensiones de los jubilados del gobierno y la porción de la nueva reforma laboral que elimina las mesadas por despido injustificado, reduce los días por enfermedad y vacaciones, y elimina el bono de Navidad, entre otras cosas. Inicialmente, el primer ejecutivo había avalado la propuesta si se aumentaba, sin condiciones, el salario mínimo a $8.25.

El presidente de la JSF, José Carrión, argumentaba, por su parte, que esas medidas son necesarias para impulsar el desarrollo económico de Puerto Rico y, por ende, se reduzcan los problemas fiscales del gobierno.

El debate tuvo uno de sus momentos picos el 19 de abril, cuando la JSF certificó un plan fiscal para el gobierno central que contiene las disposiciones que Rosselló Nevares objetó. El gobernador adelantó que no estaría acatando esas disposiciones en la planificación fiscal.

Tras la aprobación del documento fiscal, el tono de las expresiones de Bishop cambió. Ayer, en lugar de exhortar a la JSF a ser más agresiva en las medidas de austeridad que se imponían, hablaba de entendimientos y de las metas en común que deberían tener los distintos líderes del gobierno y el sector privado. También le “concedió” a la comisionada residente la petición de celebrar una audiencia durante el verano en Washington D.C. en la que se revisen los logros de la JSF y las eficiencias en sus operaciones del organismo fiscal. González al abordar el tema ayer se mostraba particularmente crítica de los gastos de la JSF en momentos en que imponían medidas de austeridad en el gobierno.

“Para lograr un progreso todos deben estar en la misma página y no pelear… Si estamos encontrados, si ustedes están encontrados, nada va a pasar. Lo que necesitamos es asegurarnos que en este esfuerzo por revitalizar la economía y darle estabilidad a la isla, desde antes del huracán, pero especialmente tras el huracán, todos estén en la mesa y enfocados en una meta”, dijo el congresista republicano por Utah.

“Tenemos que asegurarnos que estamos reconstruyendo la economía. No es tanto un asunto de más dinero federal o más dinero de las aseguradoras van a llegar sino cómo vamos a desarrollar empleos en el sector privado”, añadió Bishop.

Renovación energética

Bishop hizo hincapié en la reforma energética y en las oportunidades que tiene Puerto Rico en convertirse en el eje de la producción energética del Caribe. Este proceso, indicó, debe estar liderado por el sector privado, con la supervisión del gobierno. Añadió que el gas natural debe ser el “vehículo” para energizar a Puerto Rico.

“Me gustaría ver más puertos de gas natural aquí, ya sean estables o los flotantes como se han visto en otras áreas del mundo. Debe haber una infraestructura que puede integrar el gas natural. Es un proceso que no se puede apresurar porque tenemos una oportunidad de hacerlo bien”, dijo Bishop, poco antes de admitir que ha discutido el tema en la capital estadounidense con ejecutivos de empresas privadas que no quiso mencionar.

Otro funcionario republicano manifestó su respaldo a que a Puerto Rico le sea otorgada la estadidad.

Sin embargo Rob Bishop, miembro de la Cámara de Representantes por Utah, indicó el viernes que el territorio estadounidense primero deberá tener una vibrante economía y un gobierno estable. La isla trata de restructurar una parte de sus más de $70,000 millones de deuda pública y atraviesa una recesión desde hace 11 años.

Bishop visitó la isla con la representante de Puerto Rico en el Congreso, Jenniffer González, que lo consideró un gran aliado mientras la isla batalla por recuperarse del paso del huracán María. No obstante, el gobernador Ricardo Rosselló ha tenido roces con Bishop, y su oficina señaló que el gobernador no pudo reunirse con el congresista puesto que su agenda estaba llena el viernes.

Bishop agregó que sostendrá una audiencia de supervisión para ayudar a que la junta de control federal que revisa las finanzas de la isla sea más eficiente. El republicano es presidente del Comité de Recursos Naturales de la Cámara de Representantes, que tiene jurisdicción sobre todos los territorios estadounidenses.

Bishop se dijo recientemente frustrado por lo que llamó la “incapacidad y negativa” de la junta por llegar a acuerdos de reestructuración con los acreedores.

Bishop hizo sus declaraciones días después que el gobernador de Florida, Rick Scott, también manifestara su apoyo a la estadidad de Puerto Rico.

Mike Nova’s Shared NewsLinks: Mayors look for how to defend themselves before the Board
 

mikenova shared this story .

Members of the Association of Mayors met with the president of the Board of Fiscal Supervision (JSF), José Carrión , with the aim of presenting proposals that result in the benefits sought by the municipalities: savings and additional income under a new model of operation.

Subsequently, the associate executives met with the board of directors of the Federation of Mayors , headed by its president and vice president, Carlos Molina and Noé Marcano, respectively, to share the results of the conclave, in what is a municipal offensive to face the crisis without depend on the central government through a direct approach to the JSF.

The aim, said the mayors interviewed, is to create consensus proposals.

On the whole

“(We are working) to take the proposals together, both to the governor (Ricardo Rosselló) and the Fiscal Oversight Board and the Legislature,” the president of the Association of Mayors and municipal executive of Cayey, Rolando , told El Nuevo Día Ortiz

“We want to see municipalities beyond the partisan possibilities. We want to show that we want to be part of the solution in the fiscal crisis that the country is experiencing. We believe that municipalities can be the alternative to the crisis, “added Ortiz, who represents the mayors affiliated with the Popular Democratic Party (PPD).

As an example, he said that the municipalities of Coamo, Cayey, Salinas and Villalba have an agreement – a year ago – to jointly manage the planning and permitting area.

“This alliance has produced profits, reduced expenses and streamlined permits. Now, after a year, we will do the same with human resources, the CRIM (Center for Municipal Revenue Collection) and finance, “explained the mayor.

Este diario buscó la reacción de la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, pero no hubo respuesta al cierre de esta edición.

Buscan garantía

Tanto Ortiz como Marcano indicaron que buscarán una “garantía” del gobierno central en torno al nuevo modelo de operación de los ayuntamientos.

“Para que el gobierno central, una vez vea los beneficios en los municipios, después no los quiera quitar”, sostuvo Marcano.

La expectativa de los alcaldes es reunirse nuevamente con la JSF en una fecha cercana.

At the moment, the municipalities were removed, among other things, the State subsidy, and new austerity measures are latent, such as the creation of counties, which is not endorsed by the mayors. Although initially rejected the proposal, the JSF finally endorsed the creation of counties in the new certified fiscal plan of the central government. In essence, it is a proposal to regionalize various services.

This was not the first meeting of mayors with the JSF, although the last time was with the executive director of the agency, Natalie Jaresko, and “it was not so productive,” said the mayors.

Mike Nova’s Shared NewsLinks: Rosselló entrega títulos de propiedad junto al senador Bill Nelson
 

mikenova shared this story .

Using slogans from the electoral campaigns of yesteryear, Housing Secretary Fernando Gil Enseñat delivered this afternoon, along with Governor  Ricardo Rosselló , property titles and vouchers for Plan 8 in an activity in San Juan.

In front of about a hundred citizens, Gil Enseñat reminded the audience that he is part of the “can generation” and is one of those who thinks that “a better Puerto Rico is to come” . Both are phrases coined by the former governor of the New Progressive Party (PNP) Pedro Rosselló González, who participated in the activity held at the Convention Center of the Association of Organized Police.

At the meeting, 62 property titles were delivered and, personally, 110 vouchers of Plan 8 out of a total of 300 authorized.

Gil Enseñat said that so far this year, the Department of Housing has delivered 180 property titles and in the next two months will be 304 more, which would exceed the total property titles delivered by the agency last four years .

“That cries before the eyes of God,” he said.

During the activity he addressed the public, for a brief period in Spanish, Florida Senator Bill Nelson , who tries to captivate the Puerto Rican electorate in Florida in an effort to defend his seat before the challenge of the state governor, Rick Scott. The election will be on November 6.

Al tomar la palabra, Nelson mostró pesar por los puertorriqueños que todavía no tienen energía eléctrica a casi ocho meses del pasado del huracán María. 

Dijo que era una situación “inaceptable” y que se debe modernizar el sistema eléctrico de Puerto Rico.

Rosselló describió a Nelson como un “amigo” y un “gran aliado” de Puerto Rico y resaltó como Nelson visitó la isla después del huracán María.

“Fue clave en conseguir recursos para la recuperación”, dijo Rosselló para entonces pedir un aplauso para el congresista.

Rosselló se reunió el 23 de abril con Scott en Puerto Rico.

The governor clarified in an aside with the press that land titles were not delivered in flood areas. For his part, Gil Enseñat indicated that it seeks to accelerate the process of delivery of property titles. Each one costs the agency between $ 500 and $ 750 for the required notary process.

In part, Gil Enseñat announced that a list was opened for up to 600 citizens to apply for Plan 8 vouchers and that Puerto Ricans currently living in the United States as a result of Hurricane Maria are expected to benefit.

mikenova shared this story .

La proclamación del presidente del Comité de Recursos Naturales de la Cámara de Representantes estadounidense, Rob Bishop, a favor de la estadidad para Puerto Rico vino acompañada de unos requisitos mínimos como una “economía vibrante” y “un gobierno fiscalmente sólido” en la isla, que actualmente está bajo un proceso de bancarrota territorial.

Es decir, para que se acepte la anexión de Puerto Rico como estado, el panorama fiscal y económico de la isla debe ser diametralmente opuesto al que ha existido desde el 2006 con la depresión económica, las deficiencias presupuestarias y los impagos a los acreedores.

“Antes que el status cambie deben cambiar algunos asuntos como tener una economía vibrante, un gobierno estable que es fiscalmente sólido. Eso es esencial”, dijo Bishop en una conferencia de prensa en San Juan junto a la comisionada residente en Washington Jenniffer González, quien veía el asunto de manera distinta.

González insistía en que para alcanzar la mejoría económica de la isla tenía que concederse primero la anexión de Puerto Rico como estado.

“La estadidad es la única forma en que Puerto Rico puede salir de esta situación económica. Si tuviéramos los votos en la Cámara y en el Senado, muchos de los asuntos fiscales y financieros que estamos enfrentando serían cosas del pasado”, dijo la comisionada residente.

Se trata de una expresión similar a la que hizo Carlos “Johnny” Méndez, el presidente de la Cámara de Representantes de Puerto Rico, tras reunirse con Bishop en la mañana de ayer.

Bishop, tras escuchar las expresiones de los funcionarios locales, insistía en su afirmación.

“Tenemos que entender que se deben tomar pasos para llegar a eso (la estadidad), que no necesariamente son pasos fáciles. La viabilidad (económica) de esta isla es uno de esos componentes críticos”, reiteró Bishop, cuya comisión tiene jurisdicción sobre el status de Puerto Rico.

El gobernador Ricardo Rosselló Nevares también tenía su propia perspectiva. Al reaccionar a las expresiones del congresista, el mandatario argumentó que la estadidad “no puede ser condicionada a consideraciones fiscales o económicas”.

La visita de Bishop que se extendía al menos hasta hoy, sábado, era de carácter oficial e incluía reuniones con líderes del sector privado, políticos y ejecutivos de algunas corporaciones públicas, como la Autoridad de Energía Eléctrica. En la agenda del congresista no estaba una reunión con Rosselló Nevares. Ambos políticos han tenido enfrentamientos públicos en los últimos meses debido a interpretaciones opuestas a la ley Promesa.

Según la comisionada residente, el gobernador tenía la agenda “muy apretada”. La agenda que ayer tenía Rosselló Nevares, incluía la entrega de títulos de propiedad junto al senador demócrata de Florida, Bill Nelson, quien actualmente ocupa el escaño que quiere Rick Scott, el gobernador republicano de Florida.

Nuevo proyecto de status

Un posible punto medio parecía concretarse con un nuevo proyecto de ley en el Congreso que tras un proceso de transición podría llevar a Puerto Rico a una anexión con los Estados Unidos.

González no precisó detalles de la medida. Indicó que están trabajando en conversaciones para que la propuesta tenga apoyo de demócratas y republicanos en la Cámara de Representantes y el Senado estadounidense.

Bishop respaldó este esfuerzo porque, a su entender, podría llevar a la isla a que se reúnan las condiciones que hagan viable la estadidad para Puerto Rico. Según el congresista republicano por Utah, este status político debió “desde hace mucho tiempo” ser la solución al problema de las relaciones políticas entre Puerto Rico y los Estados Unidos.

Politics Is Making Puerto Rico’s Problems Harder

Federal disaster aid for Puerto Rico isn’t foreign aid — but Trump acts …

Washington PostOct 13, 2017

To stop the social imbalance
 

In the late 1940s, the Puerto Rican public service became, along with education, one of the main vehicles for promoting upward social mobility in the country.

The public service, whose backbone was the system of merit, made it possible for people of humble social origins, through education and the approval of entrance examinations, to aspire to higher living standards through adequate performance in government positions. This happened, above all, through the so-called administrative career, in which a public official with the correct knowledge, attitudes and values for public service rose in the hierarchy of the government agency for which he worked, which resulted in better wages and benefits, and, therefore, in an ascending social mobility.

The system of merit allowed that when a young person entered the public service had expectations of a long career to serve the country, with a social position possibly superior to that of their parents, and then, could achieve a happy retirement, after 30 years of service These labor developments in the public sector turned out to be of great importance, since the private sector of our economy has never had the capacity to generate the necessary jobs in the country, which has resulted in a historical unemployment rate of over 10%.

Since the late sixties, public service has suffered a great deterioration, particularly through politicization. To advance political party agendas, laws and practices that tended to undermine the foundations of the same were approved in Puerto Rico. Among these, the appointment of exaggerated amounts of trustworthy employees, irregular and transitory, and the elimination of face-to-face exams for admission to the public service. Likewise, essential areas of merit, such as training and training, were abandoned and the system was decentralized in an unplanned manner. This deprived the country for some time of a governing body of the public career. Other elements also caused the deterioration of public service and the loss of citizens’ confidence in it.

Similarly, this reality is reflected in the book “The system of public function in Puerto Rico: origin, splendor, crisis and vision of the future”, recently published by the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico.

The current situation of the Puerto Rican public service, together with the inability of the private sector to generate jobs that enable citizens’ social mobility, increase the risk of creating a dual society in which only the rich and poor live, which is very away from our ideals as a people.

The formulators of public policies in the country should weigh this issue and equate in a very harmonious way the imperatives of facing the economic crisis facing the country, with the need to maintain an adequate balance in its social structure, to enable important segments of our society are not condemned to a life in poverty.

Flower Power – Caribbean Business
 

Editor’s note: The following article originally appeared in the April 26 issue of Caribbean Business.

After the recent announcement by the Medicinal Cannabis Regulatory Board on implementation of restrictions on the sale of the cannabis flower at dispensaries in Puerto Rico, there seems to be no respite from the controversy that has ensued over the use of the flower, given the vast polarization of opinions from both the governor’s office/ La Fortaleza and the Legislative Assembly.

According to a missive issued by the regulator, Act 42 “prohibits, as a method of administration, the ignition or combustion of medical cannabis,” and adds that the “vaporization of the cannabis flower to a patient diagnosed with a terminal illness or in cases where there is no other suitable or adequate alternative…” will be the means to administer medical cannabis.

However, experts say the flower is crucial for treatment, particularly in the case of people with low income, who cannot afford medical cannabis treatment by other means.

“I can tell you, based on my own experience, because coming from the perspective of patients, since I have a niece who was treated with medicinal cannabis, the importance of the flower for patients is essential because it is an economic alternative that she has to be able to make her own tea or be able to create her own cannabis butter to be able to prepare products,” explained José Giovanni Ojeda, vice president of Cruz Verde Inc. He is also a course instructor for CannaWorks Institute, which held the third edition of Puerto Rico MedCann.Biz, an event that brings together the medical cannabis industry, provides educational lectures and certifies patients for medical cannabis.

“The position of the Legislature is embodied in Act 42 of 2017, which clearly includes the flower. To change that public policy, established by the Legislature and endorsed by the executive [branch], there would have to be an amendment to the bill, and our information is that right now there’s no [political] atmosphere or sufficient votes to produce these amendments,” Ojeda added.

Statistics on Puerto Rico’s medical cannabis industry reflect significant growth and potential for the island’s long-awaited economic development. As expressed during the MedCann.Biz event, the industry continues to provide indications about medical cannabis’ potential, since it has registered some 25,000 patients as of April, compared with only 6,900 in April of last year.

There were nine cultivation licenses last year. That number has now risen to 15. In 2017, there were four manufacturers, while now there are 11. By the beginning of last year, there were only seven dispensaries. Today, Puerto Rico has 45, along with 322 registered doctors and two laboratories.

Puerto Rico Economic Development Dept. promotes investment in medical cannabis market

According to information provided, 54 percent of patients are age 52 or older and women over 52 comprise 48 percent of the female patients.

“The most striking thing about the numbers to me is that more than half of these patients surpass 55 years of age, and that’s a figure that breaks with the stigma that this is for young people. The baby boomers are signing up and that is a reality. Here in Puerto Rico, the commotion and curiosity that this issue has generated, especially in the medical class, has no comparison, even with the state of Colorado. When we look at that state and see the number of doctors involved there versus the number of physicians…involved here, the future is promising for us,” the expert told Caribbean Business.

“If you ask me, it seems…the flower will always prevail because, really, when you sit and listen to the testimonies of the patients, as countless legislators have done, and we are talking about the most conservative legislators to the most liberal, you totally change your mind,” he added.

The outlook for detractors of the flower for medical treatment could become even more complicated at a time when stateside surveys indicate voters, both Democrats and Republicans, support medical cannabis. According to a 2017 Yahoo/ Marist survey, 83 percent said doctors should be able to prescribe marijuana to patients.

Seven months after Hurricane Maria, Ricardo Rosselló, the governor of Puerto Rico, is in a unique position. He has a specific vision for where he wants Puerto Rico to go in the near future, but that’s in conflict with people on the island, the oversight board, and the region’s various creditors.

Rosselló has a lot of options when it comes to reshaping his community, but one of the most contentious issues on the island has to do with the aid complications around informal housing. When asked what he would say to residents who have been in informal housing for a long time, he responded, “It’s time to go.”

“One of the opportunities I think we have is to start to eradicating that informal housing component, [to] start pushing folks into safe, formal [home] ownership,” he said, later adding: “We have had a significant decrease in population, and that has led itself to a lot of houses to be available or owned by the bank. There’s an opportunity to leverage, in the short run. The second component is implementing what we want to have: the most robust construction codes in the nation. Make sure we are ready for another category 5 hurricane.”

Below are some other highlights from his interview with Marketplace Weekend host Lizzie O’Leary.

On Puerto Rico’s proposed school closures and education strike:

“We had already established this was going to happen a long time ago. Listen, nobody wants to go to a community and say ‘your school is closing down.’ But it is not a fiscal consideration, it is [an] education consideration. In the past decade, over 43 percent of our student population has decreased. We have scattered teachers all over the map. Most of our schools don’t have a full faculty. Achievement rates are very low – about 10 percent of our kids are proficient in math, science. Only about 50 percent are coming out proficient in 8th grade in Spanish. The objective with our program is that we can consolidate those resources – have economies of scale – and we want to give everybody the access to a full faculty, so they can get a better education.”

On Puerto Rico’s bond market and new budget:

“Our job right now is not to forecast what the bond holders will receive. Our object is to establish a fiscal plan that has fiscal measures, but also has economic growth and structural reforms. Puerto Rico is reducing their budget, more than any other state has done in the recent modern history of the United States. Within the next five years, we’re essentially reducing anywhere from almost a fourth of our budget, of our expenditures. That includes healthcare, education, and the size of government.”

On Puerto Rico’s pension recipients and pension cuts:

“There’s a philosophical divide – I think we’ve established that. For us, making sure that pension recipients get their share- it’s of the utmost importance. It is our view that they are the most vulnerable of individuals in Puerto Rico – they would go under the poverty line if gets executed. And it has a negative impact on the economy as well.”

On who’s in charge in Puerto Rico:

“This a novel setting. On the fiscal limitation front – the oversight board has the power. On Title III and lending, the judge has the final say. On public policy, I have, and the government of Puerto Rico have, the final say. A lot of those things intermingle with each other. My role though, is to make sure we execute and that our powers delegated to us by the people of Puerto Rico to design public policy and to implement it, are not relegated. You know what, if somebody had to tackle this challenging time for Puerto Rico, I’m glad it’s me, I’m glad it’s my team. It’s a tough time, but it’s also an opportunity to start anew, to execute proper reforms – like energy reform, regulation reforms, tax reform, education reform, and health care reforms. ”

‘The Fatal Conscience’: Julia de Burgos, Puerto Rico’s Greatest Poet

The New York Review of BooksApr 26, 2018
In 1927, Pérez Rosario told me, Julia de Burgos moved, unaccompanied, to live with a wealthier family in Río Piedras, though the details of this arrangement are not known. Unlike the elite literary ladies whom she later encountered, she would not have been expected to receive an education. “Women of …

Julia de Burgos – Wikipedia

Julia de Burgos (February 17, 1914 – July 6, 1953) was a poet from Puerto Rico.[1][2][2][3][4][5] As an advocate of Puerto Rican independence, she served as Secretary General of the Daughters of Freedom, the women’s branch of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party.[6] She was also a civil rights activist for women and African/Afro-Caribbean writers.
‘The Fatal Conscience’: Julia de Burgos, Puerto Rico’s Greatest Poet | by Molly Crabapple | NYR Daily
 

After, when the sea will curl violently
They will say: “it is the fatal conscience of that girl,
She had many sins because she always lived in verse
And what you do on earth, on earth you pay for.”

—From “After,” by Julia de Burgos

In 1928, when Julia de Burgos was fourteen, Hurricane San Felipe devastated Puerto Rico. The Category Five storm left not a single building unscathed, least of all the wood casita in a mountain barrio in Carolina where De Burgos was born. Three hundred people died in what would be, for the next ninety years, the most violent storm in the island’s history. Julia de Burgos did not record her experience.

Puerto Rico moves towards an executable fiscal plan http://bit.ly/2pTCtEP pic.twitter.com/smWXmSkbPN

Puerto Rico  towards an executable fiscal plan  http://bit.ly/2pTCtEP  

Puerto Rico moves towards an executable fiscal plan

In the nearness of the second anniversary of the creation of the federal legal framework designed to resolve the public financial abyss of the island, we are approaching the birth of a plan that clearly traces the fiscal direction towards the budgetary equilibrium and the organized response to indebtedness.

Although differences persist between the Fiscal Oversight Board and the Puerto Rican Executive regarding certain contents of the fiscal formula submitted by the local government, in no way do these overshadow the strong areas of coincidence that push toward total consensus.

A key synchronization zone is to propose the injection of federal funds for recovery as an investment in infrastructure and the revitalization of the economy.

The Board’s endorsement of the Puerto Rican government’s vision of linking adjustments, which are mandatory in the face of precariousness, to a comprehensive agenda of reconstruction and economic stimulus, under the protection of the US government’s disbursements, is significant. This vision is reinforced by the context of the severe hurricane damage suffered by most of the vital infrastructure of the island.

The recognition, both of the government and of the Board, of the need to implement structural reforms in the governmental apparatus also enters into positive territory. These will provide support to public and private initiatives for the sustained growth of the economy.

That restructuring, as well as saving measures, is vital in the face of the fact that the federal injection of mitigation of the crisis caused by the hurricane will not be permanent. The responsibility of Puerto Rico to attend to its debts will not be postponed indefinitely.

In the labor issue, the disagreements touch rather the moment of its implementation, not necessarily its content.

Working from the areas of harmony, the insular government and the supervisory authority will transmit, to the Congress and the White House, an unequivocal message about the progress of the implementation of the federal Promise statute.

The public hearing that Congressman Rob Bishop intends to hold to assess the status of compliance with the Promise law is an appropriate forum to present to Washington the capacity of both entities to devise a certifiable fiscal plan. We agree with Bishop that the transparency, accountability, goodwill and cooperation between Puerto Rico and the Board are key to the Puerto Rican recovery.

Meanwhile, the Federal Court has reiterated the importance of the dialogue between the local government and the Board resulting in agreements. Judge Laura Taylor Swain is responsible, under the jurisdiction of Promesa, for passing a final judgment on the liability of Puerto Rico with the bondholders.

Definitively, a constructive alliance between the government and the Board can fully complete the executable fiscal recipe, even under terms related to the priorities of the Executive of Puerto Rico.

Take the case of pensions as an example, an area pending agreement between the Board and the local government. The reserves of the retirement system are practically nonexistent. In addition, the system weighs a debt that is not insured.

To leave in the hands of the Court the way in which Puerto Rico will respond for an obligation linked to the personal economy of many of our elders, is to expose them as a minimum to a pension cut more acute than the one proposed by the Board. The objectives of the entity include, in addition to austerity under this heading, guarantee a fund for payments to retirees.

The land is flattened to refine the tax plan and make it certifiable. With healthy finances and the creditors served, Puerto Rico will be able to return to the stock market in search of capital that supports initiatives for the long-term development of the economy.

The fiscal plan should be the facilitator of the entrepreneurship of new models of governance and production that encourage competition and the creation of jobs.

A great opportunity for transparency
 

mikenova shared this story .

Approximately seven months after Hurricane Maria passed , a significant allocation of federal housing funds finally materializes, the second most affected by the cyclone after the electric power system.

With the allocation of $ 18,500 million, the federal funds approved for Puerto Rico total approximately $ 31,791 million, according to calculations reported by this newspaper.

Once the problem of access to money has been solved, it will be necessary to wait for these funds to benefit those who really need help, for which it is essential that the government uses them with transparency and accountability to the last cent.

With these federal funds, the blue awnings that cover thousands of ceilings caused by the fury of the winds and water brought by Maria should begin to disappear, and the homes that were mostly uninhabitable should be rebuilt. Much of the total corresponds to people with limited economic resources who did not have money to alleviate the disaster and who, in many cases, did not receive assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA).

But, in addition, the government would have to take advantage of this situation to refocus its public policies so that they begin to repopulate the urban centers that have been left uninhabited in favor of buildings in suburban areas, whose electrification is generally more expensive.

We must think about these alternatives in the face of the fragility of the electric power system – which manifests itself periodically with more or less widespread blackouts. The problem goes so far that, according to the Electric Power Authority , a tree was the cause of a major breakdown on a main line that left large sectors of the metropolitan area without power.

The allocation of $ 18.5 billion from the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) represents a fundamental injection to the battered economy of Puerto Rico, which drags a public debt of more than $ 72,000 million without taking into account the deficit of retirement systems. currently under the magnifying glass of federal judge Laura Taylor Swain in a bankruptcy proceeding through Title III of the federal Promise Law .

The money assigned by HUD is practically equivalent to the amount of two operational budgets of the central government and will be in the view of the bondholders who are trying to recover their investments in Puerto Rico.

Therefore, it is imperative and mandatory that these funds, like the rest of the federal allocations obtained by Puerto Rico as a result of Hurricane Maria, are subject to a rigorous process of transparency and accountability by the government.

Only that will ensure that the allocated funds are used properly for the benefit of citizens and that they do not deviate for the excessive payment of advisors, much less for unnecessary contracts of professional services to friends and political co-religionists.

The federal government has anticipated its intention to closely monitor the proper use of these multimillion-dollar appropriations, but a parallel action is needed from the government of Puerto Rico, which is bound to regain confidence, not only from investors, but also from Congress and the White House.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — A small mountain town in central Puerto Rico whose economy depended heavily on manufacturing announced Thursday it will dismiss 200 employees in the largest layoff of its kind in the U.S. territory in more than a decade.

Cidra spokeswoman Eunice Castro told The Associated Press that it is necessary to lay off 35 percent of workers because the town of 40,000 people is running out of money after the closure of a PepsiCo manufacturing plant in February, which itself cost 200 jobs.

The soft drink company generated some $7.5 million a year and represented 40 percent of Cidra’s budget. As a result of the plant closure, the town budget will shrink from $18.6 million to $11.1 million in the upcoming fiscal year, with $10.5 million alone needed for employee salaries, Castro said.

“None of this adds up,” she said. “It’s not possible.”

She said Mayor Javier Carrasquillo analyzed whether the town could save money by implementing furloughs, but found that the 572 current employees would have to work only three hours a day for that plan to generate sufficient savings. The layoffs will become effective June 30.

Carrasquillo told the local newspaper El Nuevo Dia that he worries other towns might face similar situations in the near future as Puerto Rico struggles to emerge from an 11-year recession and tries to restructure a portion of its more than $70 billion public debt load.

A federal control board overseeing Puerto Rico’s finances is expected to approve a fiscal plan by next week with new austerity measures that Gov. Ricardo Rossello has rejected, including layoffs and a 10 percent cut to a public pension system facing nearly $50 billion in liabilities. Puerto Rico in general is trying to diversify its revenue sources, with manufacturing representing about 45 percent of the island’s economy.

Several of Puerto Rico’s 78 municipalities have implemented layoffs or eliminated jobs through attrition in the past decade, but none as big as Cidra’s. Currently, there are 52,100 employees working in all municipalities, compared with 64,900 a decade ago, said Vilmar Trinta, spokeswoman for the island’s Department of Labor.

Puerto Rico also has seen a drop in population in the past decade as a result of the economic crisis, with roughly half a million people leaving for the U.S. mainland in search of jobs and a more affordable cost of living, including an estimated 135,000 who fled after Hurricane Maria struck the island as a Category 4 storm on Sept. 20.

Chaos in Puerto Rico: The fall of a tree causes a new widespread blackout
 

mikenova shared this story .

A new electricity blackout in Puerto Rico affected about 840,000 users on Thursday, April 12. The fault extended from Manatí, to the center of the island, to Yabocoa, to the southeast, and included the capital, San Juan.

The Electric Power Authority (AEE) of Puerto Rico informed, through social networks, that the blackout was due to the fall of a tree “on line 50900, at the height of Cayey”, a municipality in the central area of the island .

After determining the fault, PREPA undertook work for the restoration of electric service to some sectors, mainly to health centers and the Urban Train of San Juan.

The recent blackout is added to a whole series of similar events in recent months, after the passage of Hurricane Maria in September 2017 seriously affected the electrical system.

Chaos

In the Urban Train of San Juan, many people were trapped for between 30 and 40 minutes until they could be evicted by rescue personnel.

After leaving the wagons, the passengers had to walk on the tracks and walk on foot.

The chaos was also experienced in the shopping centers, such as Plaza Las Americas, located in Hato Rey, San Juan, which after the general blackout closed its stores and evicted visitors.

The Luis Muñoz Marín international airport in San Juan had to operate for some hours with an electric generator. His authorities informed that there were no “delays or cancellations in the flights”.

Single fallen tree on power line leaves 900K without power
 

mikenova shared this story .

A single tree fell on top of a main power line in Cayey, Puerto Rico, causing a massive outage that left almost 900,000 customers in the dark as the U.S. territory is still recovering from Hurricane Maria.

The outage affected the island’s international airport as well as the metro area light rail line and Plaza Las Americas, the biggest shopping mall in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Centro Medico, the biggest public hospital in San Juan, was operating with generators.

Puerto Rico’s Electric Power Authority said the tree fell on top of the main line that supplies power to San Juan, the island’s capital, and other surrounding municipalities while workers were cleaning debris. This is part of the restoration work taking place to fix the transmission system in Cayey, a town about an hour’s drive south of San Juan.

RELATED: Why does restoring full power in Puerto Rico seem like a never-ending task?

Some commuters where stuck inside the “Tren Urbano,” the light rail line, and had to walk on the tracks.

Jorge Bracero, an electric power authority employee, said on Facebook that most of the municipalities on the eastern part of the island were without power and that fully re-establishing power to everyone could take eight to 16 hours.

The power authority tweeted: “This is the tree that fell on the power line 50900 in Cayey, causing the interruption of electric service from Manatí to Yabucoa, two towns in the eastern part of Puerto Rico. We will keep working to restore service for close to 840,000 customers.”

Across social media, people were noticeably outraged. Many posted how fed up they were with the ongoing outages and demanding a permanent fix to that line, which has failed several times in recent months.

Before the outage, more than 50,000 customers had been in the dark since Hurricane Maria struck on Sept. 20 and destroyed up to 75 percent of all power distribution lines.

The latest outage came two months after a fiery explosion at an electric substation in San Juan threw much of northern Puerto Rico into darkness.

Federal officials said Wednesday they expect to have a plan to strengthen and stabilize the power grid by June.

“Boas, pythons, poisonous snakes, bears, cougars, lions, Bengal tigers, jaguars, ocelots, spiders, and scorpions have been seized on the island”… 

“Something similar happened with the morals. Collectors [of fables – M.N.] were, mostly orators hired by kings and tyrants, who placed morals at the end of each fable: “Fraudulent man agrees [with] this fable” or

“State leaders are also more efficient if they lead the country to confusion.”

“We would have to say that, although the PNP is esopic, the PPD is Homeric and the PIP is tragic, more of Oedipus than of Antigone. While the popular make alliances with Agamemnon, Achilles and the gods, the pipiolos become tragic, marry each other, and take out their eyes.”

Puerto Rico in itself is the Aesop’s fable, starting with its name. 

Various wild animals, including the political ones: “boas, pythons, poisonous snakes, bears, cougars, lions, bengal tigers, jaguars, ocelots, spiders and scorpions have been seized on the island”…

All zis iz simply too much for zis poor little Island, (a former penal colony, which shows in everything), to handle. Too much stuff, and it feels more like a reality show mixed with tragicomedy.

When it is needed for their political (and any other, for them) survival, the Puerto Rico political elites are a mouse, and when it is needed, they are a bird.

And sometimes they look like an eagle, man-spreading up in the skies, circling slowly in the deep railroad-navy blue of their sweet, childish, dependent, narcissistic dreams.

Aesop in Puerto Rico | The new day

Like the country, Aesop had to import animals for his fables. There on the Greek coast of his native Thrace – a beach as indebted as ours – fauna was scarce. In that archipelago it was very rare to find camels, monkeys, foxes, elephants, cobras, cats, or lions, the animals that most populate the great fabulist’s stories. The esopic experts suggest that most of the fables were Greek versions of Egyptian or Libyan stories, and that the cats that appear in the fables were actually domesticated weasels or that the fearsome lion used to be the denial of the donkey.

All this comes to the house because, in February, the House of Representatives sought to approve the Project-Resolution 251, which orders the commissions of Public Safety, Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs, to investigate and prohibit the trafficking of exotic animals in the island. The driving force behind the measure is the PNP legislator, Jose Aponte Hernandez, and his main concern is drug trafficking. In a press release, our “Pet-Detective” in the Chamber assures that “boas, pythons, poisonous snakes, bears, cougars, lions, bengal tigers, jaguars, ocelots, spiders and scorpions have been seized on the island” and that There is a very close relationship between these animals and drug trafficking. Our Dr.

The biggest temptation is to imagine a spider guarding a cargo of heroin. But beyond the esopic laughter of the spider government, what worries is the foolishness of the legislator when it comes to connecting the trafficking of animals with drugs. Why do not you also take care of the macaws that run away from the mansions on Glasgow Avenue? Where are the animals that suffer the contamination due to the deposition of ashes in Peñuelas? Who will protect the fish, the octopuses and the blessed conch of the Lenten gluttony?

It is sensible to think, then, that the PNP is esopic. It is not only that his party project is mounted in a democratic fable – the symbol of the Democratic Party is a donkey – but that every time they have a problem in front they flee towards Aesop: the animals are always the others. That is why they criminalize animals that do not fit into their fable factory and import animals from other latitudes at any cost. In their eagerness to win – they govern as if they were losing – mythologize even mosquitoes.

It is no coincidence that one of the greatest experts in the fables of Aesop, the English BE Perry, believes that the fame of the fables was related to the idea of rebaptizing forgotten gods. Hence the titles that some collectors of fables selected: “The asses that went to Zeus”. Something similar happened with the morals. Collectors were, mostly orators hired by kings and tyrants, who placed morals at the end of each fable: “Fraudulent man agrees this fable” or “State leaders are also more efficient if they lead the country to confusion.”

But if it comes to Greeks, we would have to say that, although the PNP is esopic, the PPD is Homeric and the PIP is tragic, more of Oedipus than of Antigone. While the popular make alliances with Agamemnon, Achilles and the gods, the pipiolos become tragic, marry each other, and take out their eyes. But the esopic mania of the PNP takes advantage because the fable is a malleable gender, without context, that adapts, changes animals, and invents new morals. So the PNP has survived the vilest scandals of corruption, privatization and labor precariousness reforms. There is no doubt, that the PNP overcomes with the lightness of a fable, just like that esopic bat that, wounded with wings on the ground and about to be eaten by a weasel, was saved when the bat told its prey that he It was not a bird, it was a mouse.
