2 International Our Swinging Old Lady: Queen Emma #74 5 Paris has the Eiffel Tower. New York has the Brooklyn Bridge. The Statue of Liberty. The Empire State Building. Beijing has the Great Wall. Cusco has the Machu Picchu. Agra has the Taj Mahal. San Francisco has the Golden Gate. And Willemstad Well, Willemstad has the Swinging Old Lady, Queen Emma! Not quite a boat. Not quite a bridge. Her 168 meters and 16 pontoons floating over our Saint Anna Bay have inspired thousands and thousands of Google images, 50K+ YouTube videos. Her dreamy opening and closing, connects our picturesque-if-psychedelic Punda and Otrobanda for as many as 15,000 woozy pedestrians every day. Presumably the only permanent wooden pontoon bridge in the world, Queen Emma s welcoming swings grant international cruise and container ships, sophisticated oil tankers, as well as sail boats and wooden boats permission to enter our awesome natural harbor several times a day.

Masha danki to King Ocean Services and BearingPoint for sponsoring this labor of love! Carolina Gomes-Casseres 10 things everyone should know about our Swinging Old Lady: 1. She was originally built by American entrepreneur and US Consul, Leonard B. Smith (#831), in Smith had the pontoons built in Camden, Maine and transported to Curaçao by sail boat. The movable section was built in two parts on the Motet wharf in Saint Anna Bay. 2. Smith considered naming her Alliance (because she connects our two parts of Willemstad with each other), but Governor Van den Brandhof proposed to name the bridge advertentie after Her Majesty Queen Emma of The Netherlands. (Rumor has it Smith obliged, particularly because his daughter was also named Emma) 3. She was inaugurated on May 8, 1888 and immediately doubled foot traffic between Punda and Otrobanda from 4,000 to 8,000 a day (as much as 20% of the population) 4. Though not immediately visible, a small operator sits in a cabin and controls two diesel engines that turn propellers mounted perpendicular to her length, allowing her to swing parallel to shore several times a day. The process only takes a few minutes to complete. 5. If you were wearing shoes between 1901 and 1934, you had to pay 2 NAf. cents to cross her. Savvy shoe-d pedestrians would take off their shoes to dodge the toll, whereas proud poor pedestrians (who didn t necessarily wear shoes on a daily basis) saved their shoes for crossing (a special occasion) and proudly paid their 2 cents 6. A free ponchi (small ferry) connects Punda and Otrobanda when she s open. 7. Motorized traffic was allowed to cross her until 1974; after they had to cross Saint Anna s crowning glory, Queen Juliana (#878) to reach the other side of town. 8. She has been renovated frequently throughout the years (1939, 1961, ). Switching from wood to asphalt then back to wood. Her original wooden pontoons were replaced by more modern metal pontoons in to accommodate growing foot traffic. 9. Cafes along our Handelskade (Iguana Cafe) and restaurants on the Otrobanda waterfront (Gouverneur, La Bahia) use her as live entertainment throughout the day, and especially at night when she s all sparkling nights. Ps: there s nothing quite like watching New Year s Eve fireworks over Saint Anna Bay, while she sways your worries away 10. Cross her once. Cross her twice. Cross her a thousand times. Her warm swaying, calm crashing waves, emerging colors will remain a unique experience One you ll only find in our dushi Curaçao!

The store, situated in Zeelandia, burned down May 16th, The building was beyond saving, despite the efforts of the fire department. Co-director Peter Luiten says he received great support from the government, the public and the business world from day one. The government made every effort so we could get the various permits we needed fast. The business world offered office and warehouse space right away, and trucks as well, said Luiten. But the most heartwarming was the moral support of the public. The day after the fire, we came together with our business partners. After we got in the car and were on the Schottegatweg, we were stopped by people, who turned down their windows and said we had to persevere.

5 5 R mance The office is one of the places where we interact with other people of the opposite or of the same sex. Quite often, we develop good relationships with these colleagues of ours not only in the workplace but which could extend outside of the office as well. In fact, many of us go out with officemates for a night out or a weekend getaway for we consider them as dear friends. In The Office A s most people would say business and pleasure should never be mixed together, but it is never impossible for two people to develop something more than friendship in the workplace most especially if you see each other everyday and you spend more or less at least eight hours in the office. It is not impossible to develop strong feelings of attraction for we are but humans and we long for love and meaning in our lives. Before you find yourself entangled in an office romance, it is important for you to think things through and consider what other officemates might say and most especially what management has to say. Many companies, years ago have a policy against these office romance relationships but now society has been more open to this and it isn t considered taboo anymore although there are certain minor restrictions. Even if management is more lenient when it comes to their employees dating officemates, you cannot avoid pesky and nosy co-workers who spread nasty comments through the grapevine. Before giving in to your urges, try to get to know the person better and don t just jump into the water. Friendship as they is always the best foundation for any romantic relationship. Get to discover a lot about the person beyond the office by going out after office hours which would be a good avenue for beyond work conversations. If you develop a relationship, it is highly important that you be discreet and behave accordingly in the workplace. Proper decorum is expected of everyone in the office so please avoid public display of affection. Such a behavior will merely make you and your partner the topic of every conversation at lunch and coffee breaks if you display unacceptable behavior. Having your special someone in the same office can help dispel the stress that may come with your work but it is essential that you conduct your office dealings in a very professional manner and not in a conduct that is unbecoming of an employee. Prove to everyone that you value your work and that you will always perform your responsibilities well. Copied with permission from:

7 Missing girls parents won t see Nigerian leader ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) Parents and schoolmates of the 219 schoolgirls held captive by Boko Haram extremists refused at the last minute Tuesday to meet with Nigeria s President Goodluck Jonathan, who accused activists of playing politics. It now appears that our fight to get the girls of Chibok back is not only a fight against a terrorist insurgency, but also against a political opposition, Jonathan said in a statement. The mass abduction April 15, exactly three months ago, has been plagued by politics from the start. First lady Patience Jonathan charged the kidnappings never occurred and were being fabricated by her husband s enemies to damage his image. She also had two leading activists briefly arrested, and relations between the government, security forces and the #BringBackOurGirls movement have been tense ever since.

The man gave a different version, saying the doubleamputee runner was drunk, insulted his friends and the family of President Jacob Zuma and poked him in the chest, according to Johannesburg s Star newspaper. Regardless of who started the argument, the weekend episode focuses fresh attention on the disputed character of Pistorius, a globally recognized athlete who is on trial for murder after he fatally shot girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp through a closed toilet door on Feb. 14, Papiamentu English Dutch Spanish Mucha Child Kind Niño Homber Man Man Hombre Muhé Woman Vrouw Mujer Mi yu My child Mijn kind Mi hijo Ruman homber Brother Broer Hermano Ruman muhé Sister Zus Hermana Mama Mother Moeder Mamá Papa Father Vader Papá Tanta Aunt Tante Tía Tio Uncle Oom Tío PAPIAMENTU LESSON 3 Landhuis Landhuis Landhuis Brakkeput Mei Mei Chobolobo Daniel Dokterstuin Groot Santa Martha Habaai Jan Kok Knip Rooi Katootje Savonet Landhuis Restaurant Museum Art Gallery Rush-hour Moscow subway derails: 21 dead, 136 hurt MOSCOW (AP) A subway train derailed Tuesday deep below Moscow s streets, twisting and mangling crowded rail cars at the height of the morning rush hour.

9 Advertisement 9 IN the SPOT LIGHT Reaching towards Jerson Martina, the ultimate support! Success has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It s what you do for others. Danny Thomas Foto: Pearls of the Dutch Caribbean Foto: Shakira Tromp By Shardinoushka Schoop The fact that I could go to school, be an athlete, have the privilege to play the bass, the piano and the cuatro, to be part of church choirs and of the Radulphus band was amazing. This combination of possibilities for an education with fun, passion and flavor are what makes me so proud to have been born and raised on this privileged island, says Jerson Martina [29] proudly. After having a wonderful childhood on Curaçao, Jerson did what many other Curaçaoans do: he went to the Netherlands to study. Being someone who always wanted to study something technical with the purpose of helping others, Jerson studied and obtained his Master s degree in Biomedical Technology and was promoted into the Medical Science Department of Thorax Surgery at the Universitair Medisch Centrum Utrecht. The combination of successful enterprise and helping people is my ultimate goal in life, he says. Jerson loves what he is doing now. He is a clinical specialist at Heartware Inc., a company that specializes in creating revolutionary technology for the treatment of heart failure, allowing patients to get their lives back. The fact that, as surgeons, cardiologists, etc., we as a team can help a patient, is a fulfillment, he says with a smile. During his studies, Jerson started to get interested in doing something with artificial organs. During a visit to the Texas Heart Institute in Houston Jerson got acquainted with artificial hearts [support hearts], back when there was not a lot of research on this topic, and became interested in investigating the unknown. Jerson did an investigation on artificial hearts and developed a strategy which allows doctors to get insight into the condition of the heart and which they can use in their decision-making. Jerson is also the representative of the company; all the hospitals that use support hearts in the Benelux are under his care. Jerson also gives support and training in Oslo, Spain, Lebanon, Turkey, Germany, France, Slovenia, Austria and Bratislava. During his research period Jerson wrote about 10 articles. He was named the most prestigious young researcher of the International Society for Rotary Blood Pumps [ISRBP], is part of the band Ola Caribense and won this year s OCAN award, the Science Pearl. Jerson gets his motivation from his parents and sister. Their guidance and support are important to him. He is a dynamic, open and positive person and loves to dance, involved in sports and to eat tutu [cornmeal and bean polenta] with bakkeljauw [salted cod]. Getting his promotion was a fulfillment, because this was a way to show his family that he was doing well. Graduating was something he did for them, to give them a gift in return for raising and educating him. It gives me great satisfaction as a Yu di Kòrsou to give a contribution on this level. We are all equally unique and can achieve all our goals if we go for them, he says with contentment. There is no better exercise for the heart than helping people, and to be the ultimate support is Jerson Martina s purpose in life.

11 12 Voetbalwedstrijd oorzaak van schietpartij WILLEMSTAD (ANP) Een uit de hand gelopen ruzie om de voetbalwedstrijd Nederland-Argentinië was de reden voor een schietpartij op 9 juli op Curaçao, waarbij een 21-jarige militair ernstig gewond raakte. Een 20-jarige militair is hiervoor aangehouden. Dat heeft een woordvoerder van het Openbaar Ministerie (OM) op Curaçao dinsdag bevestigd. Curaçao Info De twee hielden samen na afloop van de wedstrijd de wacht op een marinekazerne. De 21-jarige man werd daar tijdens een ruzie in de nek geschoten. Zijn situatie is zeer ernstig, maar stabiel, aldus het OM. Zijn familie liet eerder weten dat hij kunstmatig in slaap wordt gehouden. De 20-jarige man zal poging tot doodslag ten laste worden gelegd. Omdat de twee miliciens onder de Nederlandse krijgsmacht vallen, doet de Koninklijke Marechaussee onderzoek. De verdachte moet woensdag voor de Nederlandse rechter verschijnen. Bij de kazerne is mogelijk meer mis. Zo maakte de marechaussee vorige maand bekend onderzoek te doen naar mishandeling, bedreiging en aanranding door instructeurs van Suffisant. Meer aandacht voor gevolgen overstromingen RIJSWIJK (ANP) Gemeenten, waterschappen en veiligheidsregio s moeten meer aandacht besteden aan de gevolgen van een eventuele overstroming. Ondanks de bescherming van dijken zijn we, mocht het echt fout gaan, onvoldoende voorbereid op de beperking van de schade en het aantal slachtoffers. Vragen als: hoe lang blijft het water in het gebied en kunnen slachtoffers snel weg zijn onderbelicht. Dat stelt de Adviescommissie Water dinsdag in aanbevelingen aan minister Melanie Schultz van Haegen (Infrastructuur en Milieu). Zij ontvouwt op Prinsjesdag het Deltaprogramma: het deltaplan voor deze eeuw.

Twee lopers bezweken die Vierdaagse: maatregelen tegen warmte NIJMEGEN (ANP) De organisatie van de Vierdaagse neemt maatregelen in verband met de warmte die vrijdag, de dag van de intocht, wordt verwacht. Dat heeft marsleider Johan Willemstein dinsdagmiddag aangekondigd. De illegalen moeten volgens een recente uitspraak van het Europees Comité voor Sociale Rechten (ECSR) onderdak, voedsel en kleren kunnen krijgen. Het Kamerlid wijst onder meer op het De 98e Vierdaagse. dag, waarna de wandelmars werd afgelast. Sindsdien heeft de Vierdaagse onder andere de hele week een eigen meteoroloog in dienst. Oppositie wil actie Teeven voor illegalen DEN HAAG (ANP) Staatssecretaris Fred Teeven (Veiligheid & Justitie) moet niet wachten met het regelen van basisopvang voor illegalen. Dat schrijven de SP, D66, GroenLinks en de ChristenUnie in Kamervragen aan de bewindsman, aldus Joel Voordewind van laatstgenoemde partij. Ivo Opstelten was in Noord- Brabant om met de burgemeesters van Gilze-Rijen en Heusden te praten over de drugscriminaliteit in de kleinere Brabantse gemeenten. Weer kreeg hij het verzoek om Friday meer March onderzoek- 1, 2013en recherchecapaciteit. Opstelten is het niet eens met commissaris van de Koning Wim van opnieuw op straat komen te staan van de groep die in de Vluchtkerk en de Vluchthaven in Amsterdam heeft gebivakkeerd. De staatssecretaris heeft de definitieve uitspraak van het ECSR vertrouwelijk gekregen en de oppositiepartijen willen dat hij hen deelgenoot maakt van de inhoud, aldus Voordewind. Volgens het ministerie kan de inhoud pas openbaar worden nadat een comité van betrokken Europese bewindslieden zich erover heeft gebogen. Doen ze dat niet voor die tijd, dan wordt het begin november vanzelf openbaar. Opstelten: voldoende inzet tegen misdaad HULTEN (ANP) Minister Ivo Opstelten (Veiligheid) meent dat er absoluut voldoende inzet is tegen de georganiseerde drugscriminaliteit in Noord-Brabant.,,We doen wat nodig is. Aan de sterkte wordt niet gesleuteld, zei hij dinsdag na afloop van een werkbezoek aan Gilze-Rijen. de Donk die maandag tegen de NOS zei dat tot dusver alleen de sukkels worden opgepakt. Burgemeester Jan Hamming van Heusden vindt dat hij een goed gesprek heeft gehad met de minister.,,we zijn eensgezind. We weten dat er meer moet gebeuren. Het komt vanzelf, reageerde hij.

This means that most appliances made in the USA (60 cycles) will work well, except for electrical devices with internal time mechanisms. For electrical appliances from the USA, you do not need an adapter plug. We use the same twopronged flat plugs as in the States.

12 Geen gezondheidsrisico na brand Shell Moerdijk STRIJEN (ANP) Vlak na de brand begin juni bij Shell Moerdijk, zijn in Strijen verhoogde concentraties (zware) metalen gevonden. Dat meldt het Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu (RIVM), dat metingen heeft uitgevoerd na de brand. De concentraties zijn, vanwege de korte blootstellingsduur, niet schadelijk voor de volksgezondheid, verzekert het RIVM. Het gaat om de metalen koper, chroom en barium. Kort na de brand werd al bekendgemaakt dat in roetdeeltjes in delen van de Hoeksche Waard zware metalen waren gevonden, waaronder chroom, maar dat het risico verwaarloosbaar was. Eenzelfde beeld komt nu naar voren in de eindrapportage van het RIVM over de milieugevolgen van de brand. Twee weken na de brand zijn nog eens monsters genomen, waarin licht verhoogde concentraties koper en chroom 45 stand-upcomedians naar festival Rotterdam ROTTERDAM (ANP) Voor de eerste editie van het International Comedy Festival Rotterdam komen in oktober meer dan 45 stand-upcomedians naar de havenstad. Het festival op 10 en 11 oktober biedt circa 20 shows per avond en vindt plaats in Rotterdam-Zuid op Katendrecht en de Wilhelminapier. Artistiek directeur Marcel Haug vindt het hoog tijd voor een groots opgezet internationaal festival waarin de lach de boventoon voert.,,het ICFR zal een staalkaart bieden van bekende en minder bekende artiesten uit binnen- en buitenland. Tijdens het festival komen diverse facetten van stand-upcomedy voorbij, meldde Haug dinsdag. Er zijn zowel Engels- als Nederlandstalige shows te zien. Bekende Nederlandse grappenmakers die meedoen zijn Jörgen Raymann, Sjaak Bral, Arie Koomen en Jan Jaap van der Wal. Bekende buitenlandse sterren zijn de Amerikaanse Bonnie McFarlane en de Britse Gina Yashere. zijn waargenomen. Volgens het RIVM zullen de waarden vanzelf weer terugkeren naar normaal. Er zou geen risico zijn voor de drinkwaterwinning en de bodem. Het slachtoffer ging op 6 april naar het politiebureau en zei dat hij was overvallen. Toen hij die avond een maaltijd wilde bezorgen op de Stationsweg zou hij van zijn portemonnee zijn beroofd. Diezelfde avond werd er een verdachte aangehouden, maar die had er niks mee te maken. Het Re- DEN HAAG (ANP) Het CDA en D66 willen dat de Raad van State zo spoedig mogelijk onderzoek gaat doen naar het conflict over de begroting van Aruba. Dat liet het Tweede Kamerlid Wassila Hachchi (D66) dinsdag mede namens de christendemocraten weten. De Rijksministerraad besloot vorige week vrijdag om onderzoek te laten doen naar de financiën van Aruba en daarom voorlopig geen groen licht te geven voor de begroting. Daarop besloot een woedende premier Mike Eman van Aruba in hongerstaking te gaan. Het kabinet antwoordde eerder op de dag op vragen van gionaal Overvallen Team van de politie startte een onderzoek en hield vorige week woensdag een 18-jarige man aan. Daarna is ook de 19-jarige verhoord. Waarom het onderzoek lang duurde maakt de politie niet bekend, liet een woordvoerster weten.

De politie heeft een foto van de man op de website gezet en is op zoek naar meer informatie over het slachtoffer. De Amsterdammer werd rond uur door meerdere kogels om het leven gebracht in de Conradstraat in Oost. Het rechercheteam wil weten met wie de man omging en of hij mogelijk zakelijke conflicten of persoonlijke problemen had. Eerder was al bekend dat hij geen bekende was van de politie. Het is dan ook een raadsel waarom juist hij het doelwit was. Van de dader(s) ontbreekt nog elk spoor. De politie zoekt eveneens getuigen die het slachtoffer zaterdag of de bewuste nacht nog hebben gezien, mogelijk in combinatie met de auto waarin hij werd neergeschoten: een blauwe Fiat Punto. Kort na het incident is er op de Flevoparkweg in Oost een grijze Volkswagen Golf brandend aangetroffen. CDA en D66 willen onderzoek RvS naar Aruba Duo verdacht van in scene zetten overval SLIEDRECHT (ANP) Twee jongemannen uit Sliedrecht worden ervan verdacht dat ze in april een overval in scène hebben gezet. Het geld dat het 19-jarige slachtoffer als maaltijdbezorger bij zich had zouden ze onder elkaar hebben verdeeld.

Daaruit blijkt volgens Hachchi dat er vragen blijven over de rechtmatigheid van het besluit van de Rijksministerraad en de rol van het College financieel toezicht (Cft) dat het onderzoek gaat doen. Er moet een derde partij naar kijken en de Raad van State is daar de uitgelezen partij voor, aldus Hachchi.

15 16 Mayor apologizes for profanity at July 4th concert PHILADELPHIA (AP) The mayor of Philadelphia is apologizing for the profanity used by rapper Nicki Minaj and comedian Marlon Wayans during a family-friendly July Fourth concert. Mayor Michael Nutter said Monday that cursing hasn t been problem at the show in recent years. He says performers are supposed to adhere to network TV standards. The free outdoor concert, which featured multiple acts, was aired live on WPVI-TV. The station censored the broadcast when foul language was used. Nutter says The Roots and singer Ed Sheeran edited their songs to avoid profanity but were still bleeped, creating the appearance they Rosalind Nyman Joel died Sunday on Long Island, said Claire Mercuri, a spokeswoman for the award-winning singer. Rosalinda s Eyes from Joel s 1978 album 52nd Street was a tribute to his mother, who raised him alone after divorcing his father, Howard Joel, in The lyrics include the words: Atelier Mirjam Griffioen Jan Thiel Beach z/n Phone: (+5999) Gallery Alma Blou Landhuis Habaai Frater Radulphusweg 4 Tel Gallery Art Together Kaya MA PieternellaM12 Boca Sami Tel Gallery Mon Art Riffort unit 103 Tel Hortence Brouwn Gallery Sculpture Garden Kaya Tapakonchi 12 Tel / Jean Girigori Gallery Kwartje 75 Tel Landhuis Bloemhof Santa Rosaweg 6 Tel Nicki Minaj performing during an Independence Day concert in Philadelphia.

He says performers Jennifer Hudson and Aloe Blacc kept it clean, although Vicci Martinez used one inappropriate word. A TV station spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment Tuesday. Billy Joel s mother, inspiration for song, dies HICKSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) The mother of singer-songwriter Billy Joel, who inspired him to write Rosalinda s Eyes, has died in New York at the age of 92. I ve got music in my hands; The work is hard to find; But that don t get me down; Rosalinda understands. Rosalind Joel worked in a clerical capacity for various businesses near her home in Hicksville, Long Island, and supported a number of charities. Born in Brooklyn to English emigrants, she met her husband in 1942 at a City College musical production and married him three years later. Their son, Billy, was born in The couple later adopted Judy, the daughter of Rosalind s late sister Muriel.

The English actress known for the TV shows The Tudors and Nip/Tuck will play poet Emily Dickinson in William Luce s play The Belle of Amherst. Never say never, Richardson said. I always swore to myself that I would never do a one-woman show. I thought, That s for crazy people. And then I read it. The play, directed by Steve Cosson, will begin performances Oct. 7 at the off- Broadway Westside Theatre, with an opening night set for Oct. 19. Tickets are now on sale. In The Belle of Amherst, Dickinson acts as the narrator of her life story, welcoming audiences to her home in Amherst, Massachusetts, in the 1880s and looking back on her life. Dickinson s most famous poems include Because I Could Not Stop For Death and Hope Is the Thing With Feathers. Lincoln Center to stream Seeger memorial concert NEW YORK (AP) Lincoln Center in New York says it will offer a live stream from a weekend memorial concert for Pete Seeger and his wife Toshi (TOH -shee). The free concert will be held Sunday at Lincoln Center s Damrosch Park. It will feature artists and speakers who had a close personal relationship with the Seegers. They include Judy Collins, Harry Belafonte, Dar Williams, Peter Yarrow, Holly Near and Tom Chapin. Lincoln Center notes that Seeger loved to lead singalongs. In that spirit, it s inviting audiences to take part in a global online singalong. A song will be selected later this week and lyrics will be available on-screen. Audience members also will be able to share video of their renditions. At Elvis Fest, impersonations are reverent tribute LAS VEGAS (AP) The white-suited, chest hairbaring, blue contact-wearing men posing with fans outside the showroom of the former Las Vegas Hilton don t want to be called Elvis impersonators. The correct term is Elvis tribute artist or ETA for short to distinguish their studied performances from the dime-a-dozen characters trolling the Strip. It s not a gag, explained Jason Sherry, producer of this weekend s Elvis Festival in Las Vegas, one of several sanctioned by Presley s estate that lead up to Elvis Week in Memphis, Tennessee, in August. It doesn t mean we don t enjoy it. But we re not making a mockery of Elvis. Some three dozen ETAs took their gyrating hips and curled lips to the stage over the weekend to see who could do the most convincing portrayal. Prizes included $2,500 in cash for the top performer and a chance to represent Las Vegas in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist competition during Elvis Week. From left, Daniel Jenkins, Tyler James and Jacob Roman joke around during the Las Vegas Elvis Festival in Las Vegas.

Los gobernantes de Brasil, Rusia, India, China y Sudáfrica conversaron en la mañana a puertas cerradas, y por la tarde prevén firmar acuerdos comerciales y financieros. Pero el aspecto central de la reunión es la creación del fondo, que pretenden sea una alternativa al Banco Mundial y el Fondo Monetario Internacional, dominados por Estados Unidos y Europa. El fondo lleva el nombre provisorio de Nuevo Banco de Desarrollo, y otros países podrían asociarse más adelante. Resta decidir la sede y quién lo presidirá. La presidenta de Brasil Dilma Rousseff y el primer ministro de la India, Narendra Modi. Boudou, procesado recientemente en otra causa por presunta corrupción y supuesto tráfico de influencias, debía declarar el miércoles ante el juez Claudio Bonadío por el caso del automóvil, pero su defensa había pedido la postergación de la cita porque el funcionario debía quedar ese día a cargo del Poder Ejecutivo ante la asistencia de la presidenta Cristina Fernández a la cumbre de los países del grupo BRICS en Brasil.

Santos y FARC estudian cómo traer víctimas a Cuba LA HABANA (AP) El representante del gobierno colombiano presentó a las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia una propuesta para que las víctimas del conflicto armado viajen a Cuba, donde se desarrollan las conversaciones en busca de un acuerdo de paz. En un comunicado señaló que en un operativo nunca antes registrado en el archipiélago se logró el desvaramiento (reflote) del buque de carga Galapaface, que yacía asentado sobre el fondo marino. Precisó que la operación de reflotamiento, mediante boyas de acero soldadas a sus costados, se cumplió desde a la media noche del lunes y una vez confirmada la ruta Los comentarios del delegado gubernamental Humberto de la Calle son la primera señal pública de que las negociaciones se reanudaron el martes, como lo habían anunciado la semana pasada las partes. Habitualmente los representantes del presidente Juan Manuel Santos y los rebeldes se presentan por las mañanas en el Palacio de las Convenciones de la capital cubana ante la prensa, pero en esta ocasión no hubo ese contacto. Hemos venido a La Habana con una propuesta concreta sobre la manera de permitir la presencia de las víctimas en las conversaciones, expresó De la Calle en un audio difundido por la presidencia de Colombia. Fracasa alianza electoral única contra Morales LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) La oposición política no logró articular una alianza y presentará cuatro candidatos, incluyendo un indígena, para retar a Evo Morales, favorito para ganar una tercera reelección en los comicios presidenciales del 12 de octubre en Bolivia. El lunes a la media noche cerró el plazo para el registro. Cinco candidatos se apuntaron y la campaña proselitista comenzó oficialmente el martes, informó el Tribunal Supremo Electoral. Morales se postula a su tercera reelección acompañado por su vicepresidente Álvaro García. El empresario del cemento Samuel Doria Medina se presenta por una alianza de centroderecha y se perfila como el principal retador de Morales, a pesar de que en tres elecciones anteriores sacó menos de 9% de los votos. El exalcalde de La Paz y exaliado de Morales Juan del Granado, el expresidente derechista Jorge Quiroga y el disidente líder indígena Fernando Vargas, son los otros candidatos.
