He also covers the decidedly more violent revolutions in Mexico, Venezuela, and Argentina.

Companies in the advertising and media industry can provide relief for victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico not only by their contributions but also by raising awareness of the dire conditions on the island, says Congressman José E. Serrano, D-NY. “Use their clout to let the federal government know that this is a humanitarian crisis,” Rep. Serrano advises in this video interview. “This is reaching the point where it’s really getting out of hand.” Aid for Puerto Rico will be front and center on Oct. 30 when some 600 marketing, media and adtech executives gather at the Festival of Media/LATAM conference at the Turnberry Isle Resort in Aventura, FL. That morning, a program called STAND WITH PUERTO RICO: The Industry Steps Up will launch to galvanize action for victims of the hurricane. STAND WITH PUERTO RICO is a joint effort by Omnicom Media Group and Beet.TV, with AT&T AdWorks and Teads as founding sponsors. The day-long call to action will seek industry help by driving global awareness to the problems on the island, highlighting current and planned initiatives by the private sector and presenting the relief work being done by nonprofits. “We don’t even know, we can only estimate, how many people may be dead,” says Congressman Serrano. “How many pets may be dead or infected with disease once the waters subside.” The goals of STAND WITH PUERTO RICO (#SWPR) are: • Brief the industry on the immediate and long-term needs of the island • Match media, creative agencies and marketers with NGOsBrainstorm creative solutions using technology, social media and traditional media • Enlist volunteers to accompany relief groups to Puerto Rico • Build key partnerships to make this effort ongoing Puerto Rico is receiving two kinds of aid: federal assistance and volunteers. “It also needs dollars to be able to do things,” says Congressman Serrano. “To provide food. To provide clean water for drinking. Corporate America can play a major role in that.” The STAND WITH PUERTO RICO program on Oct. 30 at the Turnberry Isle Resort. It will be co-hosted by Julian Porras, CEO of Omnicom Media Group LATAM; Andres Claudio, GM Hearts & Science Puerto Rico; and Andy Plesser, Publisher of Beet.TV.

Puerto Rico suffers islandwide blackout; Officials estimate up to 36 hours for restoration . Puerto Rico suffered an islandwide power outage on Wednesday morning. While this is the first total blackout, Puerto Rico has been struggling with an “increasingly unstable power grid” ever since Hurricane Maria in September, according to the Associated Press (AP). The blackout occurred when private contractor hit a transmission line with an excavator while removing a collapsed tower during an unrelated power restoration project on Wednesday, according to Justo Gonzalez, Puerto Rico's Electric Power Authority executive sub-director. This is the second major outage in less than a week. On April 12, a tree fell on a power line as crews were working to clear land in central Puerto Rico. A backup line, which would have prevented that outage, failed. The outage last week affected around 840,000 customers. The island has experienced a few large-scale outages in recent months, but the Wednesday blackout is the first to affect all 1.4 million of Puerto Rico’s Electric Power Authority customers. Officials from the Electric Power Authority said that it could take 24 to 36 hours to fully restore power. As of 7 a.m. AST/EDT Thursday, power had been restored to 1.1 million customers. Before the blackout, about 40,000 customers still did not have normal electricity service as a result of the hurricane, the AP reported. Hospitals, the Luis Muñoz Marín Airport, water systems and banking systems are being prioritized in the midst of the blackout, according to Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority. Maria made landfall as a devastating Category 4 hurricane with sustained winds of 155 mph. "We warned the people in the area and around the world about the impending hurricanes and their expected impacts, which we know saved thousands of lives, and we are very proud of that," said Dr. Joel N. Myers, AccuWeather's Founder, President and Chairman. Puerto Rico legislators are currently debating a bill that would privatize the island’s power company. The company, Puerto Rico Power’s Electric Power Authority, is $14 billion in debt and relies on infrastructure that is almost three times older than the industry average. Concerns about the island's power grid mounts as June 1, the start of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, approaches. The Major League Baseball game between the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins scheduled for Wednesday night at Bithorn Stadium in San Juan was played despite the power outage. Tower lights were brought into the parking lots, according to San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz.

Puerto Rico is experiencing an island-wide electricity outage. It is the biggest blackout since Hurricane Maria hit nearly seven months ago. The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority said on Wednesday it would take 24 to 36 hours for the power to be restored. A power authority spokeswoman told the press on Wednesday crews are investigating the cause of the outage. The power company tweeted on Wednesday that the fault happened in the 50700 power line. This line runs from Central Aguirre, in the south of the island, to power plants. Although the power grid has been unstable, Wednesday's blackout is the first time the entire island has been without power since the devastation of Hurricane Maria on September 20 The Associated Press reported that 40,000 customers had still been without power, before Wednesday's outage. This is the biggest power blackout in US history, and the second-longest in global history. https://www.buzzfeed.com/amberjamieson/puerto-rico-power-electricity-blackout?utm_term=4ldqpia http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

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.

Hurricane Maria was a natural disaster that affected us all, and to date, still affects us. The restaurant industry in Puerto Rico was no exception. According to the president of ASORE, Ramón Leal, more than 1,000 restaurants closed in the first three and a half months after Maria. But he emphasized that it was not only due to electricity problems, it was also because of lack of water tanks, insurance, and mass migration. We wanted to talk to a few owners about the whole ordeal and here is what we found out.
