      Más de tres mil cruceristas del Perla Noruega llegaron este 27 de abril al puerto de Corinto donde el Intur los recibió con  música de marimba, bailes folklóricos, expo venta de artesanías e información turística y souvenires.
      1,200 cruceristas visitaron destinos turísticos de occidente, entre ellos: iglesia Santa Ana y la basílica de El Viejo. Además hicieron el tour Flor de Caña, en Chichigalpa, recorrieron los hervideros de San Jacinto, León Viejo, la majestuosa catedral de León y otros atractivos de la ciudad metropolitana.
      Axel Melchor, de la tour operadora Careli Tour, señaló que la Perla Noruega es el crucero número 61 de la temporada, de los 74 que se estableció llegarían a puertos de Nicaragua en la temporada 2016-2017. Agregó que la próxima semana atracarán seis de estas embarcaciones tanto en Corinto como en San Juan del Sur.

      NICARAGUA es para muchos tierra de lagos y volcanes. En este país se encuentra el lago más grande de Centroamérica, el lago de Nicaragua o Cocibolca, que en lengua indígena significa “mar dulce”. En su interior hay cientos de islas, y es el único lago del mundo de agua dulce que alberga a animales marinos, como tiburones, peces espada y sábalos reales.

      Nicaragua tiene una de las regiones más aisladas de Centroamérica: la costa de los Mosquitos, llamada también Mosquitia. Se trata de una franja de unos 65 kilómetros (40 millas) de ancho a lo largo de la mayor parte de la costa atlántica y que entra en la vecina Honduras. Los misquitos son uno de los grupos indígenas que hay en Nicaragua, y su historia se remonta a antes de la llegada de los europeos en el siglo dieciséis.
      Los misquitos tienen lazos sociales muy fuertes y algunas costumbres particulares. Por ejemplo, en su idioma no tienen una palabra formal tal como “señor” o “señorita”. En las comunidades rurales, los jóvenes  se dirigen a los mayores llamándolos respetuosamente “tío” o “tía”, ya sean parientes o no. Otra costumbre de las mujeres misquitas es saludarse entre sí juntando las mejillas mientras la que inicia el saludo inhala por la nariz.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Un caso que indignó a muchas personas a primera horas de este jueves ocurrió en la terminal de buses del Mercado Roberto Huembes, en Managua, en donde un hombre de 70 años apuñaló a un joven que se ganaba la vida como cobrador de la Ruta Masatepe-Managua.
      Testigos dicen que todo ocurrio muy rápido y no se percataron que el hombre identificado como Álvaro Francisco Pavón sacó un cuchillo que traía oculto en su pantalón y le dio una estocada fulminante por la espalda, todo porque reclamaba el vuelto de cinco córdobas
      Ante el suceso vendedores y también algunos de los pasajeros lo capturaron y de inmediato llamaron a las autoridades policiales del Distrito V de la capital de Nicaragua para que tomaran cartas en el asunto.
      Ante la emergencia decidieron trasladar al joven de nombre Juan Gregorio Castillo que "nadaba" en su propia sangre en un autobús al Hospital Manolo Morales, en donde desgraciadamente horas después perdería la vida. 
      En Nicaragua se han dado algunos casos espeluznantes de homicidios que ocurren ya sea por rencillas personales o pleitos, que parecen dejar en evidencia que existen personas que no logran controlar su temperamento, reaccionando de forma violenta y sanguinaria. 
      La Policía Nacional ha informado en esta semana que estarán poniendo mano dura contra la delincuencia en esta temporada de Semana Santa, tanto en barrios así como en balnearios y centros recreativos, lugares en donde concurre una gran cantidad de personas y que se espera no se den acontecimientos fatales de ninguna índole.

      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."
