"B corporations"

Every time I post something critical of the US (today's US) I get jumped on for being anti-US. Let's try this on for size.

I previously posted an article about Vulture Capitalism on A42. It was not anti-Capitalism or even anti-US but some probably saw it that way. (The most anti-US is a post explaining how President Obama could "solve the problem" but has not.)

Getting Nicaraguan citizenship

Is it governments or corporations who are "in charge"

For buzzwords, think GMO, petroleum wars, and Wall Street. These issues come up here in NL but they are international in nature. They need an "international" discussion. See http://a42.com/forum/pg/topicview/misc/general-chat/who-really-runs-the

Status of the move to A42

The short version is "it's happening", slowly. Why slowly? Because you (plural) aren't helping. Let me offer some NicaLiving history.

NL is over 10 years old. It started as a personal experiment -- mostly me talking to myself. It attracted interest because there was new content about Nicaragua. Much of that content and the moderation/organization of the content came from a small group of people (including myself) who volunteered their time. If you have been around here for a few years you know who they are.

Why expatriate?


It can use some more reasons.

Good news for democracy

Edward Snowden has been granted a three year residency permit by Russia. An article in The Guardian goes on to explain that this is not permanent asylum but is Russian temporary residency.

PVC pipe

Does anybody know where I can buy schedule 80 PVC pipe?

Guatemala driver's license

Should you need to get a driver's license in the region (and possibly have a dirty driving record) http://a42.com/site/pg/s/1/3/63/73/336/596/ tells you how to do it in Guatemala.

Let's open the borders

Isn't opening the US/Mexico (and Israel/Palestine) borders the best solution for all? http://a42.com/site/pg/news/view/fyl-s-blog_2/let-s-open-the-borders

Are you on the terrorist watch list?

We probably don't know unless you are on the no-fly list and tried to fly. There are some clues how people get there but the word artibrary comes to mind. http://a42.com/forum/pg/topicview/misc/general-chat/how-to-get-on-the

A look at US "help"

A TruthOut article on how the US helps other countries is clearly of international scope but Nicaragua has been a victim of some of this help. As we seem to be working toward WWIII, I think this issue is worth looking at.

Learning hardware-ish names

If you are like me you have walked into a hardware store looking for a cosa or a chuncha because you didn't know what it was really called. While there are lot of cases where the correct name is not used and there are some variations in names in the region, I just accidentally found what seems to be a useful resource.

Alternative to IMF and World Bank

It's been talked about for ages but it looks like it is really happening. http://a42.com/forum/pg/topicview/misc/country-information/international...

Press release and IMF response added.
