24/02/2014 "Donde usted ve conspiración, yo veo cómo se llevan baleada a Génesis Carmona".
El jefe de gobierno porteño, Mauricio Macri, le escribió hoy una carta al presidente de Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, a quien le dijo que en lugar de "enemigos" él "solo" observa "venezolanos enojados que le exigen cambios a su gobierno".
"No debería confundir al gobierno argentino con los argentinos, como nosotros no lo confundimos a usted con los venezolanos. No todos lo apoyamos de forma total y absoluta en sus abusos", subrayó Macri en la nota publicada en su perfil de Facebook y enfatizó: "Señor Maduro, donde usted ve al enemigo, yo solo veo venezolanos".
Respecto a las manifestaciones en Venezuela, en las que murieron diez personas y desembocaron en numerosos hechos de violencia, el funcionario porteño señaló que "no son enemigos ni conspiradores los que protestan, son venezolanos".

Amid widespread speculation, Mexican officials say they examined old and current images to prove their captive was Joaquin Guzman. Officials also say they've confirmed the crime lord's fingerprints and DNA. (Mexican attorney general)
MEXICO CITY — The arrest last Saturday of Mexican crime lord Joaquin “Shorty” Guzman offers some valuable lessons, both for casual spectators and anyone hoping to replace him.
1. Technology is a treacherous if invaluable tool
Guzman built his business and avoided arrest with the help of cutting-edge technology. He reportedly swept rooms for listening devices before meetings, and directed his legions from mountain redoubts via satellite phone. Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel smuggled a lot of its drugs through spiffy tunnels dug under the US border. The gang often equipped the underground routes …

SANTIAGO – When violence flared up in Ukraine and protesters began dying at the hands of government agents, the European Union threatened sanctions against Ukrainian officials responsible for “violence and excessive force.” President Viktor Yanukovich fled Kyiv, leaving behind a private zoo with exotic pigs and goats – and also the foreign ministers of Germany, France, and Poland, who were in town trying to broker a deal to end the violence.
But when violence flared up – virtually simultaneously – in Venezuela and protesters began dying at the hands of government agents, the Organization of American States…
People line up to buy food at a supermarket in San Cristobal, about 410 miles (660 km) southwest of Caracas, Feb. 27, 2014. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Pope Francis called Wednesday for an end to violence in Venezuela that has killed at least 13 people and urged politicians to take the lead in calming the nation's worst unrest in a decade.
One of the reasons Venezuelans have been protesting all over the country for weeks is because of mass shortages of food and other goods.

The Mt. Gox bitcoin exchange in Tokyo filed for bankruptcy protection Friday and its chief executive said 850,000 bitcoins, worth several hundred million dollars, are unaccounted for.
The exchange's CEO Mark Karpeles appeared before Japanese TV news cameras, bowing deeply. He said a weakness in the exchange's systems was behind a massive loss of the virtual currency involving 750,000 bitcoins from users and 100,000 of the company's own bitcoins. That would amount to about $425 million at recent prices.
The online exchange's unplugging earlier this week and accusations it had suffered a catastrophic theft have drawn renewed regulatory attention to a currency created in 2009 as a way to make transactions across borders without third parties such as banks.
It remains unclear if the missing bitcoins were stolen, voided by technological flaws …
