• Puerto Rico Coffee Industry History and Current Status

    This short video present a summary of the history of coffee cultivation in Puerto Rico. You are starting a journey that will take you back almost 300 years to Spanish colonial Puerto Rico where the smell of lush tropical forests combined with the captivating coffee aroma, framed the development of an industry that was not always fair to the laborers and the ecosystems. Yet, today it presents one of the best opportunities to develop a prosperous, sustainable standard of living for many coffee zone residents through the strengthening of specialty coffee production and exports, agro tourism, and the preservation of the historical and natural heritage.

  • Puerto Rico's Fledgling Weed Industry Devastated By Hurricane

    Puerto Rico’s fledgling legal marijuana industry is struggling to recover as the devastation delivered by Hurricane Maria may have cost the island trade millions of dollars in damage. Its government legalized medical marijuana at the end of December, and the American territory had only just gotten its sea legs in the competitive industry when Hurricane Maria crippled what could have been a potential economic savior for an island $74 billion in debt. “Big manufacturing and grow facilities have had their roof blown off, there is water in their manufacturing rooms, equipment damaged, no light for plants and most are dead," said Goodwin Aldarondo, the president and CEO of Puerto Rico Legal Marijuana. http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/puerto-rico-crisis/puerto-rico-s-medical-marjuana-industry-ta...

To this day, the United States controls all of Puerto Rico's foreign relations, customs, immigration, postal system, communications, radio, television, commerce, transportation, social security, military service, maritime laws, banks, currency, judiciary, tariffs, trade relations, shipping industry and cabotage rights, yet shockingly they continue to avoid their responsibility over Puerto Rico's fiscal crisis.

    Automation is coming for truckers – but first, they're being watched. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO The promise of self-driving trucks will radically reshape one of America's most common jobs. There are 3.5 million professional drivers in the US, all of whom may face job displacement in the autonomous future being developed by companies like Otto, Daimler, and Tesla. But before robots take the wheel entirely, there will be a long period where truckers and artificial technology split the responsibilities of the work. The first big step toward that future comes in the form of the electronic logging device, a dashboard monitor that tracks speed, location, and a driver's schedule, and reports it to an employer or a third-party monitoring service.

The revolutionary zeal that had recently created the United States and had taken off Louis XVI's head in France arrived in South America, and a racially diverse group of people who felt more South American than European took over. John covers the soft revolution of Brazil, in which Prince Pedro boldly seized power from his father, but promised to give it back if King João ever returned to Brazil. He also covers the decidedly more violent revolutions in Mexico, Venezuela, and Argentina.

ENGLISH VERSION Currently, Puerto Rico is going through the worst fiscal crisis in its history. We owe 73 billion dollars to our lenders and we are not generating enough revenue to pay them back, while continuing to provide public services to our people. To this day, the United States controls all of Puerto Rico's foreign relations, customs, immigration, postal system, communications, radio, television, commerce, transportation, social security, military service, maritime laws, banks, currency, judiciary, tariffs, trade relations, shipping industry and cabotage rights, yet shockingly they continue to avoid their responsibility over Puerto Rico's fiscal crisis. We know where we have failed, but we are willing to make it right. We're just requesting the same from the U.S. Government: 1. Derogate the Jones Act to allow non-American ships to carry goods between Puerto Rico and the U.S. mainland in order to lower Puerto Rico's shipping costs and give us a real chance of competing in the world economy. 2. Enact for Puerto Rico a Visa Waiver Program similar to the one extended to Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, in order for us to be able to attract visitors, doctors and students from Central and South America, jump starting our tourism industry and being able to compete with neighboring islands. 3. Take an active role in solving our financial crisis, working with our government to define a strategy that will help us meet our responsibility with bond holders and develop a healthy and sustainable economy. President Barack Obama and Members of Congress: We’re not asking you for money or for pity, we’re just asking you to assume your responsibility and help us get back on our feet. VERSIÓN EN ESPAÑOL Actualmente, Puerto Rico enfrenta la peor crisis fiscal en su historia. Adeudamos 73 billones de dólares a nuestros acreedores y no estamos generando suficientes ingresos para pagarles y a su vez continuar ofreciendo, servicios públicos a nuestra gente. Al día de hoy, los Estados Unidos controlan todas nuestras relaciones con el exterior, aduanas, inmigración, el servicio postal, las comunicaciones, la radio, la televisión, el comercio, la transportación, el seguro social, el servicio militar, las leyes marítimas, la industria bancaria, nuestra moneda, el sistema judicial, los aranceles, los intercambios comerciales, la industria de transporte y los derechos de cabotaje. Sin embargo, sorprendentemente, éstos continúan evadiendo su responsabilidad sobre la crisis fiscal de Puerto Rico. Sabemos donde hemos fallado, pero estamos dispuestos a arreglarlo. Solo pedimos lo mismo del Gobierno de los Estados Unidos: 1. Enmienden la Ley Jones para permitirle a barcos no estadounidenses transportar bienes entre la isla y los Estados Unidos continentales, de modo que podamos disminuir nuestros costos de transporte y tengamos una oportunidad real de competir en la economía mundial. 2. Autoricen un Programa de Exención de Visa para Puerto Rico similar al autorizado a Guam y a Las Islas Marianas del Norte, para que podamos atraer visitantes, doctores y estudiantes de Centro y Sur América, propulsando nuestra industria turística y logrando competir con las islas vecinas. 3. Asuman un rol activo en resolver nuestra crisis financiera trabajando con nuestro gobierno para definir una estrategia que nos ayude a cumplir con nuestra responsabilidad con los bonistas y a desarrollar una economía saludable y sostenible. Presidente Barack Obama y Miembros del Congreso: No les estamos pidiendo dinero ni lástima, solo les estamos pidiendo que asuman su responsabilidad y nos ayuden a levantar.

Pastures were so over taxed many will have to be re-sown completely at great cost to farmers. In Puerto Rico, producers saw their costs rise as they relied ever more heavily on imported feed. Many also saw their production go down as heat stress and lack of nutrients took their toll on herds. Unfortunately, climate models are predicting more of these boom- bust rainfall cycles, with more extreme droughts expected. However, there are measures that farmers can take to reduce the impacts of drought and increased temperatures! Watch as Dr. Guillermo Ortiz of the University of Puerto Rico and rancher Neftali Lluch of the Lajas Valley in Puerto Rico discuss various practical steps to combat rising temperatures and prolonged drought. Stay tuned for our next videos which will be focused on adaptive practices in forestry, plantains, and fruit and vegetable production. We believe Caribbean producers are some of the most innovative in the world. Through this project we hope to highlight and share how local farmers are adapting to remain successful in the face of climate change and many other challenges.

Automation is coming for truckers – but first, they're being watched. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO The promise of self-driving trucks will radically reshape one of America's most common jobs. There are 3.5 million professional drivers in the US, all of whom may face job displacement in the autonomous future being developed by companies like Otto, Daimler, and Tesla. But before robots take the wheel entirely, there will be a long period where truckers and artificial technology split the responsibilities of the work. The first big step toward that future comes in the form of the electronic logging device, a dashboard monitor that tracks speed, location, and a driver's schedule, and reports it to an employer or a third-party monitoring service. It has a lot of truckers worried.

Hurricane Irma and Maria have devastated Puerto Rico. Elon Musk offered to help, and in a few short weeks, they’ve already installed a new sustainable energy system for the Hospital del Niño in San Juan (that’s the children’s hospital). Elon called this the first of many solar + battery projects going live in Puerto Rico. // Get these updates https://teslanomics.co/join This got me thinking, what if we wanted to rebuild all of Puerto Rico with these solar+battery combinations? What would it take, and would it last? Today we’re going to take a look at what it would take to rebuild Puerto Rico with 100% solar and battery combinations from TeslaFirst, let’s revisit how we got here...On Wednesday, Sept 20th Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico with 155mph winds and feet of rain pouring down leaving 3.4M Americans without power. Maria was technically a category four storm but came just on the heels of the most potent hurricane in record history, hurricane Irma. Hurricane Irma wasn’t the direct hit to the US Territory that Maria was. However, it left nearly 1M without power for almost two weeks.  When Maria struck, it didn’t skirt around the island like hurricanes typically do; it cut straight across the middle of it. Making things worse the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) had recently declared bankruptcy, losing 30% of its workforce since 2012Aging infrastructure across the island makes the grid more susceptible to damage from storms; the median age of PREPA power plants is 44 years. Inadequate safety also plagues the company and local newspapers frequently describe poor maintenance and outdated controls. All of these factors combined in the worst possible scenario for the 3.4M American’s living on the island, resulting in 100% power failure for the island. Phone lines went down, generators kicked in while they still had diesel, and everyone did what they could to survive. Even now, weeks after the disaster, many residents don’t have power, and all signs show that it will be months before the situation changes. Tesla can make this happen for Puerto Rico. And they already are. But could they realistically convert the island over to 100% renewables using solar and batteries?  Yes, they can. In fact, they’ve done it before, in Ta’u in American Samoa and recently Kauai Hawaii. The island of Ta’u story is special though...In Nov 2016 Tesla unveiled a project it completed in Ta’u. Their report sated The island of Ta’u in American Samoa, located more than 4,000 miles from the West Coast of the United States, now hosts a solar power and battery storage-enabled microgrid that can supply nearly 100 percent of the island’s power needs from renewable energy. This provides a cost-saving alternative to diesel, removing the hazards of power intermittency and making outages a thing of the past. This was a baby step but an important one to highlight what’s possible. The island of Ta’u is tiny compared to Puerto Rico. But the next time Tesla attempted this was for a bigger island. The Island of Kauai in Hawaii. The project in Kauai was more recent, just this past March of 2017, and doesn’t cover the entire island, but is a much more significant system, like they one they’d need in Puerto Rico. In the announcement about the Kauai project Tesla stated  "To achieve a sustainable energy future the world needs reliable, renewable energy around the clock. The island of Kauai has an abundance of solar energy, but it can only be used when the sun is shining. Kauai burns millions of gallons of fossil fuels annually to produce energy at night. Until now. Tesla’s 52 MWh Tesla Powerpack and 13 MW solar farm will store solar energy produced during the day and deliver it to the grid during the evening hours to reduce a number of fossil fuels needed to meet energy demand. This dispatchable solar project represents the first time a utility contracted for a system of this scale that stores and delivers solar energy after sunset.” They also just finished the install of the worlds largest battery installation in Southern Australia which is 129 MWh, nearly 2 and a half times as big as the Kauai system. // View entire post here: https://teslanomics.co/can-tesla-rebuild-puerto-rico-power-grid-si-se-puede // New here?

In which John Green talks about the many revolutions of Latin America in the 19th century. At the beginning of the 1800s, Latin America was firmly under the control of Spain and Portugal. The revolutionary zeal that had recently created the United States and had taken off Louis XVI's head in France arrived in South America, and a racially diverse group of people who felt more South American than European took over. John covers the soft revolution of Brazil, in which Prince Pedro boldly seized power from his father, but promised to give it back if King João ever returned to Brazil. He also covers the decidedly more violent revolutions in Mexico, Venezuela, and Argentina. Watch the video to see Simón Bolívar's dream of a United South America crushed, even as he manages to liberate a bunch of countries and get two currencies and about a thousand schools and parks named after him.
