Destinations : Discover Cuba, Part 1 By Raquel B Tejeda
- Cuba, that grand island of mystery, is also a land of timeless beauty,
an eco-paradise, the land that time forgot and an other-worldly sort of
travel experience as one feels as though they are stuck in a time warp…but
certainly a most enchanting one. The largest Caribbean island,
Cuba is all you can dream of and a much more. Pulsating with sensual music,
endless sandy beaches, captivating culture, old-age architecture, welcoming
locals, and delicious food it is the sort of time warp experience you’ll
never want to leave. This is the largest of the Caribbean islands, which
is about the size of England. It lies to the west of the Greater Antilles
group and about a quarter of its terrain is mountainous. Cuba consists
of the main island, the Isle of Youth and about 4,195 Cayes, commonly known
as Cayos. Cuba is 140 kilometers from the Bahamas and 180 kilometers from
Florida. It’ 13,000,000 inhabitants predominantly speak Spanish.
Environment: A Solar Solution for the World’s Poor - Solar Cooling, Dehumidification
and Refrigeration – A Hot Idea for the Tropics By James Post
- In an evaporator, an ammonia fluid coming from a condenser is being evaporated
in a similar manner as with compression cooling. The ammonia vapor is led
to an absorption vessel where it immediately dissolves. Hydrogen is used
to create a lower pressure in the evaporator compared to the condenser.
As the hydrogen does not dissolve in the water, the ammonia and hydrogen
are separated in the absorption vessel. The ammonia is dissolved in the
water and the hydrogen rises via a separate conduit back to the evaporator.
To get the ammonia out of the water the solution is sent to a heater (in
our case solar heated water). As the ammonia vapor contains some water
vapor the conduit is being widened at which point the water parts let loose
and get transported back to the absorption vessel via a separate conduit.
This explains the closed loop cycle that does not require moving parts.
The evaporation takes away heat from its surrounding and that is how the
cooling takes place – similar to a compressor based refrigerator.
Culinary : Mexican Cuisine - A Fusion of the Past by S. Mar
Carter - During the past year I have traveled
and explored (in complete safety) the vast, spectacularly beautiful country
of Mexico, and became thoroughly enthralled with its steamy seaside ports,
classic colonial cities, tiny fishing villages with white beaches, chilly
mountain villages, authentic arts and crafts and its kind, gracious people.
Along the way I become thoroughly enthralled with Mexican cuisine as well.
By this, I mean the authentic cuisine one finds throughout most of Mexico…not
the ‘food’ found in America that is passing itself off as Mexican cuisine.
In the food places in these cities and villages in Mexico I’ve yet to see
a taco, burrito or chimichanga on the menu. My new passion for this
scrumptious, comfort-food cuisine lead me to explore its origin, which
as it turns out is a grand amalgamation of the food products, spices and
recipes from many other countries, combined with the now lost recipes of
original Mexican cuisine. Original Mexican recipes morphed and fused, decade
after decade, as French, Italian, Lebanese, Spanish, Portuguese, and British
influences and food products were introduced to the local Mexican cooks.

Expats : Designing Mid-Life in Belize by Yvette Dalton
- Recently someone asked me how, and why, did I become an “expat.”
I knew what an expat was but had not considered me to be one - and yet
here I am living in Belize, my new home. All things considered, I
realize that I have become a part-time resident in that special club of
pioneering souls who pack up, say goodbye to their homeland and settle
down in a new country. I never thought of myself as a ‘pioneering spirit’
nor did I ever crave to chuck it all and just run away! I grew up
just south of Dayton, Ohio USA, a member of a typical American family.
I have always been an independent person and not afraid to try new adventures
– well, with the exception of things that have to do with heights. So no
jumping out of airplanes, but zip-lining in Hawaii I would recommend for
sure!! That was a blast. Once I pried my arms from hugging the tree top,
I was on my way.
Spirit : Creating Habitat Belize by Reverend Macarena Rose
- hab - i - tat (a noun) - Sociological definition from the
dictionary: the place where a person or thing is most likely to be
found. In other words… HOME. A very powerful word that brings
a lot to mind, doesn't it? It's a powerful concept and evokes many
memories and feelings for each and every one of us.... We all need
a home…. that's for sure. No one has to explain this to us.
It’s been basic to our existence as humans on earth since the beginning.
Overhanging trees, caves, whatever our ancestors could find - they made
good use of local options to shelter and protect their young. Home
is a place in which to center our lives. That hasn't changed. It never
will. The size and style of housing have varied through the ages according
to status and natural materials available - but the concept of "home" has
never varied. Home… It's where our heart is, where our loved ones reside
with us. A home is a place of nurturing.
Gems : Sybarite Guide to DR Beaches, Pt 3 By: Guitze M. Messina
- We have taken a nice tour on the most visited beaches of the Dominican
Republic, we are now going to take a look at a region with enormous potential
for its diversity and natural beauty: The south west of the Dominican Republic.
To have a great feel for the best beaches in the south of the island we
need to start early in the day and head out to Bani from Santo Domingo.
This region is not as famous because the beaches have different
types of sand from grey to black to pearl white and because until very
recently the roads where not as good as the ones to Samana
and Punta Cana. The new road being completed will make it a very pleasant
and fast trip where we will make different stops to enjoy the authentic
flavor of the region before we arrive at the different beaches that we
want to visit.
Destinations : Anguilla Does It their Way, Part. 1 By S. Mar Carter
- There has been a lot going on behind the scenes in Anguilla the past
few years to position it as the “IT” small island in the Caribbean. In
2009, Anguilla, that most serene of Caribbean island paradises and one
known for its tranquility, beauty and famed upscale resorts, began developing
new initiatives and ‘product’ changes to entice the lucrative incentive
and meeting planning business to its pristine shores. Anguilla’s objective
was to emerge as a new destination in the Caribbean’s highly competitive
incentive and meeting travel industry. And, by all accounts Anguilla
is succeeding as not only have the incentive and meeting planners taken
a closer look at this unspoiled tropical island gem, but general tourism
has seen a business increase in critical areas as well.

Discovery : Discovering Dominica Search Results from Magazine Archives
19 Articles Found - Most people have never
heard of Dominica… or they confuse it with the Dominican Republic. Fewer
still would know where to look for it on a map. Dominica is one of those
places that you need to have some idea what you are doing to be able to
really get a feel for the place. Signposts are scarce, and you surely cannot
visit all the essentials in a day. One thing is for sure… Dominica truly
unique and, above all, possesses a duality of breathtaking landscapes and
strong culture. This means that for those people who, like me, get to spend
some time on the island, it remains largely un-spoilt, untouched, unchartered
territory. My Caribbean Lonely Planet guidebook had only a few pages dedicated
to Dominica so I arrived not knowing what to expect. I know of at least
two Dominica-dedicated guidebooks in the works and I applaud them for attempting
to fill the gap.

some time off to address some family issues. We will have a new issue

Washed, Enslaved & Abused - Rod Taylor
- Rod Taylor on Slavery - you are a slave to the Government - from Aaron
Russo’s Mad as Hell show. - Aaron Russo (February 14, 1943 - August 24,
2007) was an American entertainment businessman, film producer and director,
and political activist. He was best known for producing such movies as
Trading Places, Wise Guys, and The Rose. Later in life, he created various

Freedom to Fascism. After a six-year battle with bladder cancer, Russo

Restore the Republic (restoretherepublic.com), to fulfill the political
ambitions laid out in his final movie documentary, America: Freedom to
Fascism. Regarding the organization, Russo said his goal was to "try and
get the word out to the public about what's happening to America -- and
give them an opportunity to try to change things". - Duration : 06:18
