    What Caused Argentina's Mystery Craters? By Ben Harder for National Geographic News May 9, 2002 For more than a decade, planetary scientists have been puzzling over a mixed bag of meteorite evidence scarring Argentina's plains. They gradually pieced together clues to reconstruct what seemed to be a rough-hewn but generally accurate account of a prehistoric meteorite impact. A mere 10,000 years ago, scientists deduced in the original theory, a sizable meteorite came hurtling through the atmosphere at a bizarrely low angle, smacked the ground with a glancing blow, and broke into numerous pieces that gouged separate, miles-long scars in the...
  • Argentine leader claims Falklands a NATO nuclear base

    AFP, Yahoo ^ | April 2, 2014
    Buenos Aires (AFP) - Argentine President Cristina Kirchner claimed Wednesday that the Falkland Islands serve as a nuclear base for the NATO alliance in the South Atlantic. Argentina, which calls the archipelago the Malvinas, claims the British overseas possession as its own, and fought a brief but bloody war for it in 1982. The islands, she said, "constitute a NATO military nuclear base in the South Atlantic -- this is the truth that they can't continue to hide." She alleged the archipelago is "among the most militarized areas in the world," saying some 1,500 soldiers and 2,000 civilian military personnel...
  • Bitcoin Price…to $1 Million?

    04/03/2014 7:20:12 PM PDT · by Errant · 56 replies
    It’s no surprise that Wences Casares, the CEO of Xapo, a bitcoin startup, is a big bull on the digital currency. His company, which specializes in insured Bitcoin vaults, just raised $20 million in a funding round led by Benchmark. But Mr. Casares belives that other bitcoin bulls, especially those in the U.S., do not fully appreciate the value of the currency, which has proved especially sticky in emerging markets prone to wild currency fluctuations, such as Mr. Casares’ home country Argentina. In a video interview with the Wall Street Journal, Mr. Casares says he’s not worried about bitcoin’s own...

    Venezuela is closer geographically than, and at least as important to the United States as, Ukraine. Yet the persistently blurred focus of the Obama Administration has been far less on violent Cuban inspired repression in Venezuela than on Russian repression in Ukraine. Here's a new presentation by Senator Rubio on the continuing mess in Venezuela: [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8Uz-9HvRgw] Video linkThe constitutional crisis in Venezuela has apparently been far less disturbing to the Obama Administration, and to the "legitimate" media, than the less violent mess in Ukraine. It has drawn far less media attention than the disappearance of Malaysian flight 370, coverage of which has been extensive and continuous but abysmally uninformed. Here's the best...

    Argentina is preparing for a war either against Britain or Argentines. No one is sure as the country acquires military hardware that includes, jet fighters, anti-aircraft guns and specialized radar. The news came late Saturday night, just a few months before oil drilling begins in the Falkland Islands area. Besieged by runaway inflation, corruption and inefficiency in government as well as being impotent to stop rampant crime, Argentina’s failing President, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, seems to be taking a page from history’s playbook. In January she created a new cabinet position, Secretary for the Malvinas, Argentina’s name for the Falklands....

The offer included a “perfect attendance” plus that could raise the increment to reach 26.8% if respected. “Teachers unions claimed 61% and 35% salary increments. This is impossible,” said the Cabinet Chief, and added that the Government “hopes to near positions with the unions and close a deal next Monday or Tuesday”.

    President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner is going down to Chavezville by repeating the same errors as Venezuela. The only way that she could mess up Argentina any further would be by actually starting a war with the UK. Last month, retailers agreed to freeze the prices of around 200 basic goods–ranging from detergent to milk to condoms–to fight inflation that economists say likely surpasses 30% annually. Obviously there’s a problem here. Passing price controls doesn’t mean that the products will actually be available. At the time, retailers said the agreement could lead to supply problems if manufacturers of certain goods...

    Economist ^ | 2/15/14
    Why dwell on a single national tragedy? When people consider the worst that could happen to their country, they think of totalitarianism. Given communism’s failure, that fate no longer seems likely. If Indonesia were to boil over, its citizens would hardly turn to North Korea as a model; the governments in Madrid or Athens are not citing Lenin as the answer to their euro travails. The real danger is inadvertently becoming the Argentina of the 21st century. Slipping casually into steady decline would not be hard. Extremism is not a necessary ingredient, at least not much of it: weak institutions,...

More than 20 children were wounded by the hyper-aggressive fish, with one seven-year-old-girl reportedly losing a piece of her finger.

    Two years ago, a few days after the victory of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in Argentina’s presidential election, the government decided to impose a new system of foreign exchange controls that the press called “the cepo.” Initially started as an effort to crack down on tax evasion, it became clear later that the new measures were part of another exchange-market intervention by the central bank. In a system of flexible exchange rates, the central bank limits its activities to controlling the money supply. Therefore, the price of foreign currency acts only as an indicator of the correctness or incorrectness of...

However, an Argentine journalist, Abel Basti, who comes from the Patagonian town of Bariloche, where so many...

    IRGC and the spiritual vacuum of Latin American leftists The following is a glimpse of the kind of thing I often see while researching the activities of the IRGC (writ large) in Latin America. Communism fails to provide for the spiritual needs of leftwing political activists, and the Islamic Republic of Iran seems to have done a pretty good job of inserting themselves and the Khomeinist version of Shiism into that void. (Either that or the IRI is throwing lots of money around and the leftists are whores, which is certainly possible, but for the moment I'll take the more...

    September 27, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Argentinean government is under fire for distributing “educational” literature with graphic nudity, rape scenes, and explicit bestiality to public schools throughout Argentina. “They contain explicit sex, drugs, and even zoophilia,” said Principal Osvaldo Calvente, from the Guillermo Villanueva School in Maipú, in the province of Mendoza. He was the first person to publicly denounce the books. “I decided to put them away immediately to keep them out of the student’s reach. This cannot, by any means belong in a school library,” he said. “It is my duty as the school’s principal.” One of the...

    Luana, known as Lulu, is believed to be the youngest to benefit from the country’s new Gender Identity Law, which was approved in May 2012. The act enshrines the right to be identified by name and sex as defined by the individual. As a result, the governor of Buenos Aires, Daniel Scioli, approved Lulu’s application to change her name from Manuel on her DNI, the Argentinian identity card, and birth certificate. "The government of the province of Buenos Aires has decided to provide a solution to this particular case raised by the family," Alberto Perez, chief of staff, said, according...

    Read this in on the French newspaper "Le Monde" web site. Here is a synopsis in translation: A popular, widely circulated German newspaper reported that (West) German intelligence services knew of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann's whereabouts in Argentina as far back as 1952, yet willfully kept it secret from the rest of the world until at least 1958, when the information was shared with US intelligence. The newspaper published several relevant memos from those intelligence files with their article. Until last year, the files had been kept under wraps by the German court having oversight responsibility for the intelligence...

    Sometimes, succeeding in sports is all about being in the right place at the right time. A group of pickup soccer players in Argentina learned that lesson recently as they watched a dog scamper onto their field and actually score a goal. As you'll see in the video below, a young man swings the ball past the goalie and (accidentally, we think and hope), hits the dog standing at the far post. The dog, of course, heads the ball home for a score
