MANAGUA, Nicaragua — Nicaraguan police have dispersed anti-government protesters in the capital with tear gas, injuring two people.

Carrying blue and white balloons, demonstrators on Saturday gathered at several locations in Managua to condemn the death of a teenager during a 2018 march against the administration of President Daniel Ortega.

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights condemned via Twitter what it described as “state violence against protesters” on Saturday.

Hundreds of Nicaraguans have been killed, jailed or forced into exile since protests against Ortega erupted in April 2018.

      Nicaragua has everything that Costa Rica has to offer — the same Pacific coastline, the same crashing surf, the same rain forest, the same bio-diversity — plus a whole lot more that no other country can compete with, including the colonial jewel of a city Granada. All of these delights are available for a song.
      Specifically, Nicaragua today offers three appealing and dramatically differing choices for the potential retiree: Granada, the Spanish-colonial city by the lake; San Juan del Sur and environs along this country’s southern Pacific coast, one of the best surfing destinations in the world; and the northern highlands, still off the beaten path but perhaps most interesting of all if you’d like to combine your lifestyle objectives with an investment upside.
      Just how affordable can this country be? A couple could live here on as little as $1,200 per month, and you could own your own brand-new condo in the center of Granada, built to North American standards, for as little as $99,000.

      En un caserío llamado El Porvenir, ubicado al noreste de Estelí, Maura Urbina —desde una casita forrada con plástico negro—, arropa primorosamente a su Milagritos y le canta, la besa, la acaricia con intenciones de aliviarle el picor corporal que no la deja tranquila desde hace varios minutos. La niña —producto de la resequedad y las gruesas capas de piel seca— se rasca desesperada mientras llora y su angustia oprime el corazón…A los 15 minutos, parece que la comezón ha cesado un poco, transcurrirán varias horas para que vuelva, y Maura aprovecha para revisar el fogón avivado por la ventisca de la tarde, “los frijoles ya casi están en su punto”, dice convencida, mientras arregla unos trastos y ahuyenta a los pollos y una camada de perritos cachorritos que caminan y defecan donde se les antoja.Hay mucho humo dentro de la casita —que mide aproximadamente seis metros de largo y cinco metros de ancho—, pero además de eso, un hedor a materia fecal que sale de la letrina, situado a escasos 10 pasos de la cama donde reposa la niña y su madre.

      Nicaragua’s disaster prevention agency said on Twitter that no damage was immediately reported, and that the quake had been felt in the cities of Leon and Chinandega as well as the capital, Managua, according to the Sistema Nacional para la Prevención, Mitigación y Atención de Desastres (Sinapred).
      Many people wrote on social networks that two earthquakes had occurred; nevertheless, the geologist Mayorga explained that the first thing that was perceived was the primary wave, and later, the secondary wave, but both belong to the same event.
      Geological events occur suddenly.
      The Sinapred announced the second national simulation, which will take place on September 21, in which they always include as one of the risk scenarios with the occurrence of a seismic event.

      Security camera footage shows law enforcement walking inside the TV station Friday night.
       
      (CNN)Nicaraguan police shut down operations at a major TV network and arrested the owner, accusing him of instigating hate and violence in the country, officials said.
      Law enforcement raided the headquarters of 100% Noticias in Nicaragua's capital of Managua late Friday night and took several people in custody, including the broadcaster's owner and director, Miguel Mora, and news director Lucia Pineda, colleagues said.
      Mora appeared in court Saturday morning where he was formally accused of "fostering and instigating hate and violence" in the country, according to an attorney with the Nicaraguan Center for Human Rights representing Mora.

      HAVANA TIMES – Daniel Ortega has achieved what neither Putin, nor climate change, nor China, nor the immigration problem, nor Maduro nor Syria could do: he inspired nothing more and nothing less than the adoption of a bipartisan consensus between the US Republican and Democratic parties regarding his regime.
      What’s more, he managed to become a point of consensus between the US Executive branch, headed by Trump, and the US Congress. It may seem a lie or an exaggeration, but no other topic during Trump’s administration has been resolved with this level of consensus.
      In reacting to the decisions adopted by the organs of United States power, Ortega momentarily dusted off the old speeches that he had kept filed away these eleven years and spoke once again of interventionism, of imperialism and other expressions of the like. Then, he fell silent.
      He’ll likely speak about it again once he’s assimilated the blow and has designed the course he’ll follow. Meanwhile, it’s important to recall that Nicaragua’s economic dependence with respect to the United States has broadened and deepened during this “antiimperialist” regime of Ortega’s.

      Ortega profundiza su aislamiento internacional al no asistir a la Cumbre Iberoamericana

      Jefes de Estado y representantes iberoamericanos en la Cumbre. LAVANDEIRA JR. EFE
       
      Todas las miradas estaban puestas en él. Daniel Ortega había confirmado su asistencia la Cumbre Iberoamericana de La Antigua (Guatemala) en un intento de lavar su imagen tras la represión emprendida en abril contra sus opositores, que ha dejado más de 300 muertos y 400 encarcelados. Una muestra de que no tenía nada que ocultar. De dar una sensación de normalidad en su país que no es tal. Era el primer encuentro multilateral al que el presidente de Nicaragua iba a asistir desde que se iniciaran las protestas, después de declinar su participación en la Asamblea General de la ONU. En el último momento, Ortega canceló su viaje y profundiza el aislamiento internacional del país centroamericano.

      Un centenar de seguidores del gobierno y paramilitares irrumpieron este lunes en la basílica de la ciudad de Diriamba, suroeste de Nicaragua, y agredieron a jerarcas católicos, agravándose la violencia que deja unos 250 muertos en casi tres meses de protestas contra el presidente Daniel Ortega.
      Los seguidores de Ortega entraron con violencia en la Basílica de San Sebastián, cuando obispos y sacerdotes llegaban a apoyar a una decena de personas que se habían refugiado el domingo, en medio de un enfrentamiento entre fuerzas del gobierno y manifestantes que tenían barricadas en las calles.
      “Asesinos”, “mentirosos”, “hijos de puta”, gritaron los partidarios del gobierno cuando llegó a Diriamba la comitiva de religiosos, encabezada por el cardenal Leopoldo Brenes y el nuncio Stanislaw Waldemar Sommertag, constató un equipo de la AFP.
      Los jeracas católicos, que se trasladaron en caravana desde Managua, fueron rodeados por seguidores del gobierno en la entrada del templo, en cuyos alrededores había decenas de hombres encapuchados vestidos de civil y policías.

      El secretario general de la ONU, Antonio Guterres, condenó el viernes la violencia en Nicaragua y “en particular el asesinato de varios manifestantes” en protestas antigubernamentales en Managua el 30 de mayo.
      Las protestas del miércoles contra el gobierno de Daniel Ortega dejaron al menos 16 muertos, y los fallecidos alcanzan ya más de un centenar desde las primeras manifestaciones del 18 de abril.
      Decenas de miles de nicaragüenses que marchaban el miércoles de noche en apoyo a a las madres que han perdido a sus hijos en las protestas fueron emboscados por francotiradores, mientras hombres armados trataban de dispersarlos a balazos.
      La matanza motivó una enérgica respuesta internacional.
      Guterres instó al gobierno de Ortega “a garantizar la protección y la libertad de expresión de los manifestantes pacíficos”.

      WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will end in January 2019 a special status given to 5,300 Nicaraguan immigrants that protects them from deportation, senior Trump administration officials said on Monday.

      They also said the program known as Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, would be extended until July 2018 for about 86,000 Honduran immigrants, but added it could then be terminated.
      The decision to end TPS for Nicaraguans is part of President Donald Trump’s broader efforts to tighten restrictions on immigration.Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants from across Central America live and work in the United States, but some are protected from the threat of deportation under the TPS program.
      Thousands from both Nicaragua and Honduras were given the special status in 1999 after Hurricane Mitch devastated Central America. In all, TPS protects more than 300,000 people from nine countries living in the United States.
      Trump’s administration was faced with a Monday deadline to announce its decision on Nicaragua and Honduras.
      Critics have complained the TPS program allows participants to repeatedly extend their stays in 6-month to 18-month increments in case of a natural disaster, civil strife or other emergencies in their homelands.
      In the case of Nicaragua, acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke decided the conditions caused by Hurricane Mitch “no longer exist, and thus, under the applicable statute, the current TPS designation must be terminated,” the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said in a statement.
      The TPS for thousands of Nicaraguans was due to expire on Jan. 5, 2018, but it was delayed by 12 months “to allow for an orderly transition.”

      A girl in a park in Managua, Nicaragua. The country topped the list for gains in happiness.

      Norway can be frigid. And the winters bring lots of darkness. But it's the happiest nation in world, according to the 2017 World Happiness Report.
      Denmark comes in at #2, followed by Iceland and Switzerland. Finland takes 5th place. And, it turns out, these countries have more in common than a tolerance for cold.
      Well-being is shaped by a range of factors. "All of the top countries rank highly on all the main factors found to support happiness: caring, freedom, generosity, honesty, health, income and good governance," according to the report.
      The second tier of the top ten includes the Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Sweden (the last two tied for 9th position).
      The developing world has its share of unhappy countries. According to the report, some of the unhappiest nations in the world are Afghanistan, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Haiti.
      But there are encouraging signs in low- and middle-income countries. Cameroon, Latvia, Nicaragua and Sierra Leone, for example, are all on the list of the 20 countries reporting the highest gains in happiness.
      Meanwhile, happiness in the U.S. has slipped a bit, according to the report. "The reasons are declining social support" as well as a decline in trust — and an increased sense of corruption, write the co-editors in a summary report. In 2015, the U.S. ranked 13th. This year, it slipped to 14th.
      The report draws on survey data from 155 countries. "We ask people to think of their lives as a whole," explains report co-editor John Helliwell, an economist at the University of British Columbia who studies well-being and comparative economic growth. Each year, researchers survey 1,000 people in each country.
      Some questions are quite simple, such as: In times of trouble, do you have family and/or friends to count on? Other questions measure people's perceived levels of freedom, generosity and trust — both in each other and in their governments and businesses.
      The Nordic countries have among the most generous social safety nets. "Access to higher education, access to high-quality health services are part of it, explains Jon-Åge Øyslebø, minister of communications, cultural affairs and education at the Norwegian Embassy. (We reached out to him before he had heard about the top spot his country had earned in the new report.)
      There are also generous social support programs. For instance, new parents in Norway are eligible for nearly a year of leave with pay. "Norway is a relatively egalitarian society with regard to both to income differences and gender," Øyslebø told us. He says he thinks this is an important part of the happiness equation.
      Another factor, of course, is the economy. Overall, Norway is pretty wealthy, in part due to the natural resource of oil. But even though oil prices have declined, Norwegian level of happiness has risen, at least according to the report.
      "Absolutely there's more to it than money," Øyslebø says. Many studies have shown that after people's basic needs are met, additional income is not necessarily a path to happiness.
      So what's the value of these global ranking? After all, the survey data that they're based on are pretty crude measures. And at any given time, in any nation, some people are suffering while others thrive.
      "The reason for taking this [report] seriously," co-editor John Helliwell told us, is that it offers an alternative to thinking of "income as the measure of progress."

      Yader Isaac Chávez Canales trabajaba como traductor y tenía novia con la cual planeaba casarse

      La juez Karen López Fuentes admitió la acusación y dictó prisión preventiva contra Yader Isaac Chávez Canales, quien enfrentará audiencia inicial el próximo 2 de marzo. LA PRENSA/WILIH NARVÁEZ
      Yader Isaac Chávez Canales dejó de usar camisas de manga larga y corbatas, y no volvió a visitar la iglesia de los Testigos de Jehová, desde que se convirtió en emo.Su cambio empezó en diciembre pasado y su exvecina Mariela Mejía nunca lo vio consumir droga. El emo de 18 años, fue acusado del parricidio de su madre Eymi Johana Canales Pérez, de 35 años, y del asesinato de su padrastro Denis Francisco Medina Moreno, de 27 años.Mejía, de 38 años, describe a su exvecino de la Zona Cinco de Ciudad Sandino como un joven educado y le sorprendió ver su cambio: uñas pintadas en color negro y el cabello un poco largo.Fue hasta el lunes que la Policía Nacional lo presentó, que ella se enteró que el joven tenía progenitora, ya que él vivía con su tío.
      Fue regalado
      “Estoy muy arrepentido”, manifestó Chávez Canales, quien compareció a audiencia preliminar resguardado por un fuerte dispositivo policial.Fernando Mejía, de 48 años, llegó a las afueras de los juzgados para tratar de ver a su exvecino que en más de una ocasión le dio de comer, luego que un tío supuestamente lo corriera de su casa. Además, asegura que el joven ha tenido una vida muy sufrida.Chávez Canales, cuando tenía cuatro años supuestamente fue regalado por su progenitora a una pareja de estadounidenses que conoció en la iglesia de Testigos de Jehová.El joven vivió 12 años en Estados Unidos, pero sus padres adoptivos fallecieron en un accidente de tránsito.Según Fernando, el joven le contó que él también iba en el vehículo, pero únicamente sufrió algunas heridas en la cabeza. Incluso le mostró algunas cicatrices.Las autoridades de ese país lo deportaron hace dos años, y supuestamente le dieron 50 mil dólares de indemnización, pero el dinero presuntamente lo habría agarrado un familiar.Chávez trabajaba como traductor, tenía novia, con la cual planeaba casarse. Tenía pocos meses de vivir en casa de su madre.

      Al menos siete agentes de la Policía Nacional llevaron a Yader Isaac Chávez Canales hasta los Juzgados de Ciudad Sandino, donde se realizó la audiencia preliminar para conocer los cargos que le imputan. LA PRENSA/WILIH NARVÁEZ
      Mazazos en la cabeza
      El fiscal Manuel Reyes detalló en la acusación que el viernes 17 de febrero, a las 7:30 p.m., el joven sostuvo una discusión con su progenitora, porque esta le tenía retenido su celular, ya que el acusado, el Día de San Valentín le sustrajo una plancha de cabello para comprar sustancias alucinógenas.Presuntamente, Chávez intentó agredir a su progenitora y por eso intervino Medina Moreno.Pero en el forcejeo ambos cayeron al piso de rodillas y en eso el joven aprovechó para agarrar un mazo y pegarle en par de ocasiones en la cabeza al padrastro, quien quedó desmayado.Con el mismo mazo también le pegó en la cabeza a su progenitora y al caer continuó la agresión hasta provocarle la muerte.Su padrastro trató de incorporarse, pero le propinó cuatro cuchilladas.Según la Fiscalía, el 18 de febrero, Chávez sacó los cuerpos al patio de la casa, los cubrió con ropa usada que vendía su mamá y les echó gasolina.Casi una hora los cuerpos estuvieron en llamas, al amanecer nuevamente cubrió los cuerpos con ropa y cuando pretendía huir fue detenido por sus vecinos.La audiencia preliminar estuvo a cargo de la juez Karen López Fuentes.El abogado Secundino Cuadra, defensor del acusado, pidió a la juez que al joven se le realice una valoración psiquiátrica y que se le realice una prueba toxicológica y de alcoholemia. La juez dio lugar a esta petición.
      Dio otra versión
      Yader Chávez lloró durante la audiencia y apretaba sus manos en las cuales se podían apreciar varios rasguños. En el ojo derecho se podía ver un moretón.Antes de empezar la audiencia preliminar dio breves declaraciones a los medios de comunicación. Al consultarle por qué cometió el doble crimen, respondió: “Mi padrastro estaba pegándole a mi madre y le iba a pegar con un mazo, yo para protegerla a ella, empecé a pegarle a él (a Denis Medina) y después de eso ella me empezó a agredir”, manifestó el acusado. Asimismo, manifestó que no consume droga.Entre los elementos de convicción que tiene la Fiscalía están pruebas testimoniales, acta de detención y ocupación del mazo, cuchillo, entre otras evidencias.

    • I just woke up startled, from my afternoon nap. I had a really scary nightmare, about the Presidential Impeachment effort now going on. I dreamed I was a Democrat Congressman, and in the dream I thought I was possessed by a demon that controlled me like a puppet. And in fighting that double whammy of being a Democrat Congressman, and a demon, I was trying to fight the evil that possessed me. I thought "Could it be that we are just whiney bullies, completely divorced from reality, trying to railroad and frame a man for crimes that do not even exist, but are merely policy differences between adversaries?" I thought "Could it be that this is just a vendetta, for his unspeakable crime of making us and all out friends look like complete fools, in predicting Hillary would win in a landslide of historic proportions?" I thought "Could it be that our hatred for this man, and his continuous string of accomplishing what he promised to do in his campaign is making us hate him even more, giving us NOTHING to run on in 2020?" I thought " Could it be that this unfair sham of a trial to get him impeached is merely to mortally wound him so he will lose the 2020 Presidential Election, especially since every one of our candidates are either senile, or bat-crap crazy .... or both?" And then I came to the unconsious realization ( ... as I was in fact dreaming ...) that "NAAAAH! ... merely a spot of indigestion."        
    • Nice try! Nothing has changed with word manipulation. Face it, its was you, JTR, TTH, Anna that get people banned. But here we go, I prove you wrong, and now you're using it as an excuse to ban. So, let's not contradict yourself, why people get banned because of spamming. It doesn't have anything to do with being rude or anything else. It has to do with people here not wanting to be proved wrong. I don't wish to give anything. I just don't like manipulating other peoples words to come out with a false claim. I could go even further about Russell's spoken words. Put you're the researcher and ranking expert here. Your supposed to know all that already.
    • You are going to have to do some serious explaining, to justify that statement, as it makes no sense at all. Further, if Thor is the reaction you get when eating a Thanksgiving Day meal, you need to take some Athpirin.
    • Watch out, you just admitted that it was you who got people banned from this forum. And up until now, I'm sure no one had any idea that it was you getting yourself banned all those times. 🙄 You said: "Russell didn't care for the Pyramid scheme" and now it appears you wish to give, as evidence, the fact that Russell wasn't sure if the Pyramid indicated anything for the year 1910. If you read what Russell said, however, he claimed that the Pyramid perfectly supported 1874, 1878, 1881 and 1914. He had several times predicted related events timed to about 1910, but he could not distinctly find them in the Pyramid, as he claimed to have found for other dates. Even in 1911, just months after this 1910 question was answered, Russell said in the March 15, 1911 Watch Tower: "No doubt all of our readers have read STUDIES IN THE SCRIPTURES, Vol. III, the last chapter of which describes the Pyramid and sets forth much of the wonderful symbolic teachings shown in its construction. It shows the Pyramid to be in exact harmony with the Bible. Indeed, some, after reading this volume, have referred to the Great Pyramid as 'The Bible in Stone.'" Just because Russell didn't care for how well the scheme supported 1910, doesn't mean he didn't care about how it was in EXACT harmony, he claimed, with 1874, 1878, 1881 and 1914. The 1917 Finished Mystery book bragged about how Russell's chronology was written before he ever saw the Pyramid, and before he even saw any of Edgar's abundant evidences of the accuracy of Bible chronology in the Pyramid. In 1920 Rutherford went to see it, and the Watch Tower in Dec 15 reported that all the other pyramids were built under the direction of Satan except "the Great Pyramid, which was built under the Lord's supervision." In the June 15 1922 Watch Tower Rutherford published that the "present-truth chronology . . . the correspondency of dozens of measurements proves that the same God designated both pyramid and plan. . ." By 1924, it was claimed of course in the May 21, 1924 Golden Age that the Pyramid, the "Scientific Bible" verified the importance of 1874, 1914 and 1925. (This addition of the 1925 date is actually kind of hilarious if you have carefully read Charles Piazzi Smyth and Joseph Seiss, and see how Russell had re-used their material.) Also in 1924, The Way to Paradise, showed the Pyramid with the caption "GOD'S PLAN WRITTEN IN STONE." Here, it was conjectured that Shem probably built it. Russell had conjectured it was Melchizedek. This was repeated in 1925, and as late as 1926, the Watch Tower said that "advanced Bible Students believe that the Great Pyramid at Gizeh is the witness to the Lord in the Land of Egypt mentioned by the Prophet. (Isa. 19:19)" It was not until 1928 that it became a monument built "under the direction of Satan the Devil." It was now Satan's Bible and no longer "Jehovah's Witness" in stone. This was one of the reasons for the controversy when Rutherford insisted that this false information in Volume III, continue to be sold and advertised in 1929, 1930, 1931, 1932, etc. And still made available for sale by the Society even in the 1940's. Special deluxe editions of the Studies in the Scriptures were still mentioned in the Kingdom Ministry as late as July 1967.

Sinon, comment pouvons-nous avoir la conscience nette quand nous prêchons que seul le Royaume de Dieu résoudra les problèmes de l’humanité ? Le monde de Satan approche de sa fin et on peut s’attendre à ce qu’il soit de plus en plus difficile de rester neutres. Le professeur de sciences : « ok, prêt pour la vidéo ? » Dan, Jordan, les stores, s’il vous plaît ? « Cette semaine, par groupes, vous réfléchirez aux mesures politiques que les gouvernements devraient prendre. N’oubliez pas, c’est vous les jeunes, qui devez agir pour résoudre les problèmes qui menacent la planète. Chacun de vous est concerné. » (cris de manifestants) « Quand on sera en guerre, c’est toi et moi qu’on enverra se battre. Est-ce que t’auras le courage de dire non ? (ils font signer des pétitions) (En prédication) Une dame déclare : « Moi, je me préoccupe des élections, surtout pour les jeunes comme toi. A ton avis, qui va gagner ? » Le jeune proclamateur : « Hum… nous croyons que… je veux dire, hum… » Sa mère répond : « C’est un sujet très intéressant. Les Témoins de Jéhovah croient que c’est le Royaume de Dieu qui apportera la solution à tous nos problèmes » Le jeune proclamateur est dans un fast food et entend deux hommes qui sont à table où l’un déclare : « Tu sais, ce nouveau gouvernement, je crois vraiment que sa politique va marcher. »  L’autre homme répond : « ça va pas, non ? Avec leur politique, dans moins de trois ans, on sera ruinés » « Mais si ça marche, on sera riches » « Les riches peut-être, mais nous….. » Le jeune proclamateur rentre à son domicile, allume la télé et entend une journaliste qui déclare : « Nous avons invité des spécialistes pour répondre aux questions suivantes : l’opposition peut-elle l’emporter ? Va-t-elle tenir ses promesses envers ceux qui ont un faible revenu ? A quels changements peut-on s’attendre pour le service militaire ? Vous avez sûrement hâte d’écouter les réponses. Commençons par le ministre de l’Education, John Mc Carty Le jeune proclamateur réfléchit : «  Si ma fidélité est mise à l’épreuve, je veux vraiment prendre position pour Jéhovah. Mais toutes ces questions peuvent avoir des répercussions sur moi dès aujourd’hui, sur ma famille, sur mes objectifs. Alors, comment rester neutre, surtout au fond de moi ? Il prend la Bible et lit Jean 17 :14-19 « Je leur ai donné ta parole, mais le monde les a haïs, parce qu’ils ne font pas partie du monde, comme moi je ne fais pas partie du monde. Je ne te demande pas de les retirer du monde, mais de veiller sur eux à cause du méchant. Ils ne font pas partie du monde, comme moi je ne fais pas partie du monde. Sanctifie-les par le moyen de la vérité ; ta parole est vérité. Comme tu m’as envoyé dans le monde, moi aussi je les ai envoyés dans le monde. 19 Et je me sanctifie pour eux, afin qu’eux aussi soient sanctifiés par le moyen de la vérité.» Il raisonne : « Ne pas faire partie du monde, comme Jésus, ni en pensées, ni en actions » (En prédication) Un homme déclare : Ok, mais de mon vivant ? Le jeune proclamateur répond : « Oui. Il y a quelque chose dans la Bible qui m’en a convaincu. Je peux vous montrer ? C’est dans Matthieu 24 :33 « De même, quand vous verrez toutes ces choses, sachez qu’il est proche, à la porte » Comment pouvons-nous rester neutres dans les affaires sociales et politiques ?   jwb_F_201903_04_r240P.mp4
