    Haiti poised for Civil War?

    When the companies get new samples from the base populations in their database. When getting the DNA results of mixed race populations, it is crucial to have more samples of the parent populations (meaning, Old World populations plus New World Amerinds) of the mix in order to get a better...

    Abinader mediates for agreement beween Uber and regulated tourism taxis in tourism areas

    Transportation unions are one of the reasons why I think this country should have limits to the freedom of settlement in the cities, not the total one that Cuba has, but something that gets to have the same results indirectly.

    Mediate? in a sane country most if not all the hooligans of those unions would be in jail.

    Migracion Bus Full of Haitians in Sosua Abajo today

    Really hard to have any sort of sympathy for them, considering that their behavior in pre-revolutionary Cuba wasn't that much different, as in, shafting the common Cuban jibaro due to preferring Haitian and/or West Indian cane cutters.

    Haiti poised for Civil War?

    Hard to say. Not so much civil war as complete anarchy and collapse, and possibly enough, another international military occupation to contain the troubles. It will be like returning to their previous Saint-Dominguan status during the 1790's.

    Bingo, specially given the propensity of people here to park on the oddest of places.

    The positive side of the Haiti-DR border fence

    I wouldnt so sure about it. Doms have become a sizeable minority in PR already, coast guard and all, so what could prevent Haitians from doing up the same? Specially if they manage a relations coup of putting themselves like the Central American caravans on the Mexico-US border? You know as well...

    The positive side of the Haiti-DR border fence

    Depends on which of the political systems ends up overcoming. If it's DR's and its relative stability, then the bad things about the outcome could be (somewhat) turned around, but if current "Haitian" conditions are the ones to overcome, well, then the rest of the archipielago will be in for a...

    The positive side of the Haiti-DR border fence

    Besides the economic aspect of things, the main systemic problem I see with Haitian affairs is that they need to begin to understand that parliamentarism may not be suited to their needs. For starters, the administrative process need to be streamlined and made simple, not more complex, as in...

    The positive side of the Haiti-DR border fence

    I have crossed, and the only point on that part of the island that is remotely close to having DR standards of living is Ouanaminthe. That doesnt take away from the relative beauty of other geographical locations like Jacmel, but it is what it is.

    Migracion Bus Full of Haitians in Sosua Abajo today

    There was a period when the British became the main importes, and this was during the crisis of WWII, but I suppose the reason for this was due to it being part of the larger American package of aid to them and the rest of the allies. The info is on Arturo Martínez Moya's "La Caña Da Para Todo"...

    Supreme Court rejects appeal by Juliana Deguis Pierre

    As for the main question, Nan, the Consejo has yet to meet with Abinader presiding over it, so in theory the current Suprema doesnt answer to him.

    Supreme Court rejects appeal by Juliana Deguis Pierre

    Supposedly the major parties of the political system are assigned a role in the election council that selects the judges (Consejo Nacional de la Magistratura), of course, the party that won the last election gets to have more of a say, though.
