  1. We use this Raid Max, it is very effective even with scorpions, it kills them immediately, eventually we also spray Cypermethrin combined with water and diesel, but with that you have to be very careful
  2. A North Korean honor guard waits for the arrival of Choe Ryong Hae, vice chairman of North Korea's State Affairs Commission, at the Pyongyang Airport Friday, Jan. 6, 2017, in Pyongyang, North Korea. Hae was headed to Nicaragua to attend the inauguration of their President-elect Daniel Ortega. (AP Photo/Wong Maye-E) PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — A senior North Korean delegation left Pyongyang on Friday to attend the inauguration of Nicaragua's newly elected President Daniel Ortega. Choe Ryong Hae, a close aide to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, is heading the delegation as a special envoy. Choe has become something of the foreign face of the North Korean government with his relatively frequent trips lately. He is vice chairman of the State Affairs Commission, one of North Korea's most powerful institutions, and is vice chairman of the Central Committee of the Worker's Party of Korea, along with being a member of its politburo. Kim Jong Un has yet to make an official trip abroad although he has been in power for more than five years. In the meantime, Choe has served as Kim's special envoy on missions to Moscow and Beijing in past years and more recently headed Pyongyang's delegation to Cuba for Fidel Castro's funeral. Before that, he led the North's participation at the Rio Olympics. Choe's trip to Nicaragua comes as North Korea is facing increased international pressure after two nuclear tests and a satellite test launch in 2016. The United Nations imposed a new round of sanctions at the end of November last year that included measures to limit North Korea's diplomatic activities around the world. Choe, sent off by an honor guard, departed Pyongyang on Friday morning's scheduled Air Koryo flight to Vladivostok. He was expected to travel via Moscow and Cuba before arriving in Nicaragua. North Korea and Nicaragua opened diplomatic relations in 1979.
  3. Oh I am sorry, so far I have not heard about that problem here. Here it is very sunny and earth fertile in many regions.
  4. Maybe that is the reason, I found this article, I hope it helps: Plumeria Does Not Bloom: Why Is My Frangipani Not Flowering By Bonnie L. Grant Frangipani, or Plumeria, are tropical beauties that most of us can only grow as houseplants. Their lovely flowers and fragrance evoke a sunny island with those fun umbrella drinks. Many of us northern gardeners wonder why is my Frangipani not flowering. Generally, Frangipani will not flower if they receive less than 6 hours of bright sunlight, which can be hard to achieve in some climates or where there are lots of trees. There are a few cultural and situational steps you can take, however, if your Plumeria does not bloom. Why is My Frangipani Not Flowering? Frangipani flowers come in a colorful array of tones. The bright hues of these 5-petaled beauties are standouts as container plants in cooler climes or as garden specimens in warm climates. The foliage is glossy and nice to look at, but since most gardeners grow the plants for their profuse blooms, a non-blooming Frangipani is something of a disappointment. There are 3 main reasons for a Frangipani not blooming. In addition to the 6 hours of bright light the plants require, they also need fertilizer at the right time and pruning occasionally. Pest can also attribute to non-blooming in plants. If the fertilizer is not the right type and is not applied at the right time, it can affect blooming. Fertilize Plumeria plants during the spring and summer. Another reason a Frangipani will not flower is that the stems are not old enough. Young plants, or those that have been pruned, need at least 2 years before the wood is ready to produce buds and flower. Insects such as thrips, aphids and mealybugs will threaten overall vigor but can also cause withering and dropping of new buds, another possible cause when a Plumeria does not bloom. How to Reduce Chances of Non-Blooming Frangipani Frangipani are not cold tolerant and grow best in warm regions of the world. Cool season gardeners can put container plants outdoors in summer but they need to go indoors when cold weather threatens. Plumeria plants are hardy to 33 degrees Fahrenheit (.5 C.). Plant in-ground trees in a site with full to partial sun, but at least 6 hours of light per day. Extreme sites, such as the southern side of the house, should be avoided. Potted plants should be in good potting soil with excellent drainage. In-ground plants need soil amended with compost and good drainage. Water the equivalent of one inch per week. If you are rooting a cutting, you should wait to fertilize until the cutting has new leaves. Mature Frangipani should not be watered or fertilized in winter. In spring, use a water soluble fertilizer with phosphorus content of 50 or higher twice per week. A granular fertilizer should have a phosphorus rate of 20 or higher. Time release formulations work well for consistent fertilizing through summer. A balanced time release fertilizer works well for overall plant health, but one higher in phosphorus can help promote flowering. Prune these plants in winter, but again, this is one of the reasons for Frangipani not flowering, at least for a couple of years.
  5. I know several JWs that have come to Nicaragua to serve in areas where need of publishers is greater while they live comfortably, some are retired, others stay and then go back to their countries to work and save money and then come back to continue serving. They have more purchasing power here I think and don't live a luxurious life if they want to stay longer. We are happy to have them here helping us even in areas where local JWs are unable to visit
  6. Of course my dear friend, you are very welcome. We'll enjoy the Frangipani, "Sacuanjoche" National Flower of Nicaragua
  7. Nicaragua is improving the quality of tourism, here is in sixth place:
  8. Thanks @Nicole for reminding me that I have not read that book yet and others from my personal library. I remember I got this book in September 2015 and took this photo to let Shannon knows
  9. "Infinitamente gracias a la Academia por este reconocimiento que es para todo un pueblo”, dijo el cantautor. La Academia Latina de la Grabación le otorgó el Premio del Consejo Directivo al cantautor nicaragüense Carlos Mejía Godoy, galardón que recibió de manos de su sobrino, el salsero Luis Enrique.“La persona premiada es de mi país y fue una gran inspiración en mi vida, muy pocas veces tiene uno el honor de homenajear a una persona que quiere mucho… mi tío, Carlos Mejía Godoy”, expresó el salsero.“No pueden imaginarse el estado anímico que me encuentro al recibir esta presea importante. Esta presea es de Nicaragua… infinitamente gracias a la Academia por este reconocimiento que es para todo un pueblo”, dijo el cantautor Carlos Mejía. “Infinitamente gracias a Dios, mis padres y hermanos por creer en mí. No tengo más palabras en este momento Nicaragua, la nicaragüita se está asomando a nuestro rostro ya nuestro corazón que palpita de emoción” continúo diciendo el nicaragüense, quien terminó con un ¡viva Nicaragua! La actividad se realizó en el Hotel Four Seasons, de Las Vegas. Gabriel Abaroa Jr. Presidente/CEO de La Academia Latina de la Grabación dijo que durante estos premios especiales se le han otorgado a más de cien leyendas vivientes y que ahora era el turno de ocho nuevas leyendas, quienes recibirán un sencillo pero merecido homenaje. Carlos Mejía Godoy estuvo acompañado por su esposa Xochilt Jiménez, hijos, sobrinos y amigos.
  10. Nicaragua's Ortega on course for landslide reelection Daniel Ortega, Nicaragua's current president and presidential candidate from the ruling Sandinista National Liberation Front, shows his ink stained thumb to the media beside his wife Rosario Murillo after they casting their vote at a polling station during Nicaragua's presidential election in Managua November 6, 2016. REUTERS/Oswaldo Rivas By Enrique Pretel and Alexandra Alper | MANAGUA Nicaraguan leader Daniel Ortega powered toward his third consecutive term as president of the poor Central American country on Sunday, as voters cheered years of solid growth and overlooked criticisms he is installing a family dynasty. By fusing his militant past with a more business-friendly approach, Ortega stands in stark contrast to many once-dominant Latin American leaders, whose popularity has plummeted in recent years after failing to guarantee gains in economic prosperity. The 70-year-old former guerilla fighter, who is running with his wife, Rosario Murillo, as vice president, had 72.1 percent of votes, with 66.3 percent of polling stations counted, the electoral board said. The announcement sent hundreds of his leftist Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) party supporters out into the streets of Managua to celebrate. Ortega's main opponent, the center-right Liberal Constitutionalist Party (PLC) candidate Maximino Rodriguez, was a distant second with 14.2 percent of votes, the board said. "I'm euphoric, thanking God for this opportunity, this triumph, so the people continue to reap benefits," said Ana Luisa Baez, 55, a widow and mother of four who runs a small store out of her home. "Thanks to the (Sandinista) revolution, I have faith I'll be able to keep moving forward, because we are backed by a good government," she added, as car horns honked and motorcycle riders wove through Managua's Plaza de las Victorias waving red and black Sandinista flags. Girls in sequined mini-skirts danced to Latino pop music on a stage in the square in celebration. Speaking after casting his vote on Sunday evening, Ortega, a one-time foe of the United States government, couldn't resist taking a potshot at Nicaragua's northern neighbor just days before U.S. voters decide on their next leader. "Now it's us, the Nicaraguans, who decide, because we no longer have a single Yankee general here," Ortega said, referring to years of U.S. interference in the country's affairs. "It's we Nicaraguans who count the votes, this is a sovereign democracy." FIGHTER Emerging as leader of the Sandinista movement that toppled dictator Anastasio Somoza in 1979, Ortega led the country during the 1980s, when a civil war against U.S.-backed Contra rebels killed some 30,000 people and unleashed an economic crisis. After losing the 1990 election, Ortega threatened to fade into history, but the former fighter managed to orchestrate a return to power when he became president in the 2006 election. Opponents have accused Ortega of trying to set up a "family dictatorship" since he appointed relatives to key posts, and after his Sandinistas pushed constitutional changes through Congress that ended presidential term limits in 2014. The opposition views Murillo's vice presidential bid as further evidence of Ortega's power grab, particularly given that rumors have long swirled over his supposed health problems. "Ortega gets his way and he doesn't care if he violates the rights of others," said Maximino Rodriguez, candidate of the center-right Liberal Constitutionalist Party (PLC), Ortega's closest rival, polling at 8 percent support. "Supposedly he fought against the Somoza dictatorship, and the Sandinistas themselves regard Ortega as worse than Somoza," he added, arguing Ortega was trying to cling to power. PATH TO AUTOCRACY? Hernan Selva, a 22-year-old engineering student and Ortega supporter, dismissed as "the kicks of a drowning man" the complaints by Rodriguez, who fought the Sandinistas in the 1980s as part of the right-wing paramilitary Contras. Despite the United States and international organizations having voiced concern about Ortega's stranglehold on power, the World Bank acknowledges that poverty has fallen almost 13 percentage points under his rule. A substantial part of those gains have been funded by Venezuelan petrodollars that have underpinned social programs, helped private business and slashed energy costs. Ortega has also forged alliances with the business sector, helping Nicaragua to achieve average growth rates of 5 percent in the past five years. Despite some ups and downs, Ortega and U.S. President Barack Obama have maintained a relatively cordial relationship, demonstrating Ortega's shift from a leftist firebrand to a diplomat who maintains ties with a Cold War enemy. But democracy remains a touchy subject. A U.S. bill known as the Nica Act seeks to condition financial assistance to Nicaragua on improvements in democracy, human rights and battling anti-corruption, leading Ortega's government to decry "interference" from Washington in September.

  11. Yes, from 1985-1990 and later since 2007 to the present date, they are going to "win" elections this next Sunday. Although there has always been a vice president, they never had influence as the President's wife has, this time she will be officially "vice president". However the percepction of most of the people here is that she always has had power even more than the President since the beggining of his administration.
