What’s Happening in The US Today

Sometimes living in a foreign country you forget about the smaller or less celebrated holidays! I know it happened to us for sure! Thanksgiving and Christmas are surely not forgotten but what about those other holidays that might have simply meant a three day weekend for you? Or maybe just a good time to buy appliances?

Well today in the US is President’s Day or as its lesser known as Washington’s Birthday! 

Washington’s Birthday is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February, meaning it can occur the 15th through the 21st inclusive, in honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States, who was born on February 22, 1732. Colloquially, it is widely known as Presidents Day and is often an occasion to remember all the presidents, not just George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday is also in February.The term “Presidents Day” was coined in a deliberate attempt to change the holiday into one honoring multiple presidents.

The day is also a state holiday in most states with official names including Presidents’ Day, President’s Day and Washington’s and Lincoln’s Birthday. Depending upon the specific law, the state holiday might celebrate officially Washington alone, Washington and Lincoln, or some other combination of U.S. presidents (such as Washington and the third president Thomas Jefferson, who was instead born in April).



Coronado, Panama…..Not To Be Confused With San Diego

Back in the 1940s, Coronado was just a few sleepy ranches alongside an unspoiled stretch of blue Pacific and black-and-white speckled beaches. However, Coronado is now a highly popular beach town on the Pacific coast of Panama.

Located an hour from Panama City, it is on the ‘Arco Seco’ (‘dry arch’) stretch of coastline, so named because of the remarkably low rainfall it receives each year.

WHO Says That Mosquito-borne Zika virus is ‘spreading explosively’

From January 29th, 2016 Aljazeera Online Article:

The World Health Organization expects infection of up to four million people as agency assesses level of global emergency.

The mosquito-borne Zika virus may infect up to four million people, the World Health Organization said, as the agency convened to decide if the outbreak should be declared an international health emergency.

Margaret Chan, WHO director-general, said in a statement on Thursday that the level of alarm was “extremely high”.

“Last year, the virus was detected in the Americas, where it is now spreading explosively. As of today, cases have been reported in 23 countries and territories in the region,” Chan said.

“Arrival of the virus in some places has been associated with a steep increase in the birth of babies with abnormally small heads and [with] cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome.” The syndrome can cause temporary paralysis.

More than just the Canal…The Panamanian ports are the most efficient

Panama has the most efficient ports in Central America, with a combination of the shortest turn-around time and the second-lowest cost of procedures, according to Doing Business of the World Bank.

Customs and other documentation cost $720, while the average time spent by ships in the ports of Balboa and Colón is 31 hours.

The cost of documentation in El Salvador’s Port Union is only $610; however, docking time is 51 hours.

The average docking time in the Costa Rican ports of Moin & Caldera is lower than in El Salvador, but formalities cost $1,027.

Puerto Cortés of Honduras is the least efficient in both categories, charging $1,839, with an average wait time of eight days (the ranking includes the total cost to the carrier, taking into account formalities and time value).

Ports In Ranking Order:

1             Panama

2             El Salvador

3             Costa Rica

4             Guatemala

5             Nicaragua

6             Honduras
