VENEZUELA: How Rum and Cocuy Came Back to Life During the Crisis

Thanks to the denominations of origin that protect their ancestral quality and technical standards, these two drinks endure Venezuela’s economic downfall and illicit competition

Kaoru Yonekura | Caracas Chronicles

As real as the liquor market crisis is, two Venezuelan liquors manage to avoid that same crisis: Pecaya cocuy and rum. And all while complying with the rules and regulations by which the Servicio Autónomo de Propiedad Intelectual (SAPI) gave them the Denomination of Origin (DO); cocuy pecayero got it in 2001 and rum in 2003.

With this top-tier distinction on intellectual property, producers stick to the traditional and standard techniques when manufacturing these liquors, as well as the environmental care in their production areas. This way, the original product seal indicates that the Pecaya cocuy and rum are unique, one-of-a-kind, high quality, culturally valued, and especially, Venezuelan products.              Continue reading

BUSINESS: DEAD MALL – Full Walkthrough of Sunrise Mall (Creepy) – Massapequa NY

BUSINESS: DEAD MALL – Full Walkthrough of Sunrise Mall (Creepy) – Massapequa NY (Est 1973)

The year 2023 will see a number of malls closing permanently. This Sunrise Mall closes on December 31, 2022. It is located in Long Island NY.

This is because of changing shopping patterns and the rise of on-line shopping plus competition from newer malls. However, the most destructive has been the over-supply of shopping options and changing demographics.

This video gives an example of the “Death of The Mall”  — especially speeded up as large department stores (anchor stores) close. I am sure that it will remind you of the older malls in your town or city.

GUYANA: The Guyana Police Force : Remuneration and corruption

Guyana Police Force Badge

By EDITORIAL: Stabroek News – December 6, 2022

Last week’s public disclosure of the emoluments of policemen and women evoked some level of public ‘hum.’ Comments focused mostly on what was felt to be the paltriness of the remuneration.  Some of the discussants wondered aloud as to whether the salaries afforded those cops on the lower rungs of the ladder, particularly, do not, in fact, contextualize embedded allegations of corrupt practices in the Force.

The argument that salary levels ought not to be posited as justification (or explanation) for the perpetration of practices that bring the Force into disrepute will always hold a generous measure of weight. One of the responses to that argument has been that functionaries who fall into the categories of Public Servants (and the Police are, in effect, Public Servants) have all, traditionally, found themselves in the same circumstance as far as emoluments are concerned but that not everyone had yielded to the temptation to subsidize their incomes through the pursuit of unwholesome options.      Continue reading
