• 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...

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.

About 80 percent of the crop value on the island is gone, according to Carlos Flores Ortega, Puerto Rico's secretary of Agriculture. The department's preliminary figures estimate a $780 million loss in agriculture yields across the territory. Trees are stripped of both leaves and bark, with entire fields simply bare, blown away by Maria's unrelenting winds.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerto_Rico Puerto Rico (/ˌpɔrtə ˈriːkoʊ/ or /ˌpwɛərtə ˈriːkoʊ/), officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, [esˈtaðo ˈlibɾe asoˈsjaðo ðe ˈpʷeɾto ˈriko]—literally, "Associated Free State of Puerto Rico"), is an unincorporated territory of the United States, located in the northeastern Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic and west of both the United States Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands. Puerto Rico (Spanish for "rich port") comprises an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands, the largest of which are Vieques, Culebra, and Mona. The main island of Puerto Rico is the smallest by land area of the Greater Antilles. However, it ranks third in population among that group of four islands, which also include Cuba, Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti), and Jamaica. Due to its location, Puerto Rico enjoys a tropical climate and also experiences the Atlantic hurricane season. Originally populated for centuries by indigenous aboriginal peoples known as Taínos, the island was claimed by Christopher Columbus for Spain during his second voyage to the Americas on November 19, 1493. Under Spanish rule, the island was colonized and the indigenous population was forced into slavery and nearly wiped out due to, among other things, European infectious diseases. The remaining population was emancipated by King Charles I in 1520. Spain possessed Puerto Rico for over 400 years, despite attempts at capture of the island by the French, Dutch, and British. The Spanish Crown, in an attempt to keep Puerto Rico from gaining its independence, revived the Royal Decree of Graces of 1815. The decree was printed in three languages — Spanish, English and French — and it fostered the immigration of hundreds of non-Spanish European families. The relationship between Puerto Rico and the United States dates back to the Spanish-American War, in which Spain, under the terms of the Treaty of Paris of 1898, ceded the island to the United States. Puerto Ricans became U.S. citizens in 1917, and the United States Congress legislates many aspects of Puerto Rican life. However, the islanders may not vote in U.S. presidential elections. Since 1947, Puerto Ricans have been able to elect their own governor. Its official languages are Spanish and English, with Spanish being the primary language. The island's current political status, including the possibility of statehood or independence, is widely debated in Puerto Rico. A referendum on statehood, independence, or continuance of the status quo will be held on November 6, 2012... When Columbus arrived in Puerto Rico during his second voyage on November 19, 1493, the island was inhabited by the Taínos. They called it "Borikén", or "Borinquen". Columbus named the island San Juan Bautista, in honor of Saint John the Baptist. The first Spanish settlement, Caparra, was founded on August 8, 1508 by Juan Ponce de León, a lieutenant under Columbus, who later became the first governor of the island. Eventually, traders and other maritime visitors came to refer to the entire island as Puerto Rico, and San Juan became the name of the main trading/shipping port... On July 25, 1898, during the Spanish-American War, Puerto Rico was invaded by the United States with a landing at Guánica. As an outcome of the war, Spain ceded Puerto Rico, along with the Philippines and Guam, that were under Spanish sovereignty, to the U.S. under the Treaty of Paris. Spain relinquished sovereignty over Cuba, but did not cede it to the U.S... In 1947, the U.S. granted Puerto Ricans the right to elect democratically their own governor. Luis Muñoz Marín was elected during the 1948 general elections, becoming the first popularly elected governor of Puerto Rico... Puerto Rico consists of the main island of Puerto Rico and various smaller islands, including Vieques, Culebra, Mona, Desecheo, and Caja de Muertos...

FOOD & WATER RUNNING OUT IN PUERTO RICO - U.S. Aid Failure. The People Are Desperate Nine days after Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, thousands of containers of food, water and medicine are stuck in ports and warehouses on the island, as logistical problems continue to stop desperately needed supplies from reaching millions of Americans. Hurricane Maria pushes Puerto Rico's struggling hospitals to crisis point In many parts of the US territory, food, medicine and drinking water are scarce, and amid a growing the 1920 legislation which had prevented foreign ships from delivering supplies from US ports to Puerto Rico. But the breakdown of the island’s supply chain has left many concerned that the move will not be enough to get goods to the people who need them most. Yennifer Álvarez, a spokesperson for Puerto Rico’s governor, said about 9,500 shipping containers filled with cargo were at the port of San Juan on Thursday morning as the government struggled to find truckers who could deliver supplies across the island. The delivery issue is aggravated by an intense shortage of gasoline. About half of Puerto Rico’s 1,100 gas stations are out of action; at those that are open, people have been queuing for up to nine hours to buy fuel for vehicles or the generators which have become essential since the island is still without electricity. Rafael Álvarez, vice-president of Méndez & Co, a food distribution company based in San Juan, said he was worried that if fuel was not efficiently distributed soon, people might get desperate. “I really hope things are worse today than they are going to be tomorrow,” he said. “People are getting very anxious with the heat and the lack of easily accessible drinkable water.” Advertisement Because of Puerto Rico’s crippling economic crisis, few people had the money to afford more than a week’s worth of emergency supplies, said Alvarez. . The island is running short on food, fuel, and access to clean water and there’s limited communications, which means some communities have received no information about the rescue efforts underway. power is restored on the island. That’s half a year with Puerto Rico’s 3.4 million residents relying on generators, half a year without air conditioning in the tropical climate, half a year where electric pumps can’t bring running water into homes, half a year where even the most basic tasks of modern life are made difficult. “Being without power is huge,” says Mutter. “Just how quickly they can get it back is still an unknown thing. But it’s extremely important they get it going to suppress the chances of illness following the storm.” Puerto Rico is the most populated island Maria hit. And the crisis there is particularly intense. For one, it’s exacerbated by lack of communications. (1,360 out of 1,600 cellphone towers on the island are out.) Many communities have been isolated from the outside world for days, relying only on radios for news. The communications shortage means the full extent of the crisis has not been assessed. But the list of woes is much longer. An untold number of homes are irreparably damaged. Infrastructure is badly damaged. People aren’t working. The storm was particularly costly for the agriculture industry: “In a matter of hours, Hurricane Maria wiped out about 80 percent of the crop value in Puerto Rico, Cruises from San Juan, Puerto Rico won't be resuming this week after all. The three-night trip to Antigua and St. Kitts on the 3,114-passenger Adventure of the Seas was just announced on Thursday. It was a shortened version of a seven-night voyage to the Southern Caribbean that originally was scheduled to begin this past Saturday but postponed after Maria struck. “Given Puerto Rico’s fragile economic recovery prior to the storms, we ask the Trump Administration and the U.S. Congress to take swift action to help Puerto Rico rebuild,” Rossello said in his Monday statement.

Hurricane Maria wiped away around 80% of Puerto Rico’s agricultural industry Hurricane Maria left the agricultural industry on Puerto Rico in a shambles after dragging across the U.S. territory as a Category 4 storm last week, according to The New York Times. About 80 percent of the crop value on the island is gone, according to Carlos Flores Ortega, Puerto Rico's secretary of Agriculture. The department's preliminary figures estimate a $780 million loss in agriculture yields across the territory. Trees are stripped of both leaves and bark, with entire fields simply bare, blown away by Maria's unrelenting winds. The Times reported that it only took a matter of hours for the storm to become one of the costliest in the history of the island's agriculture industry. Crops of banana, plantain and coffee were damaged the most, Agriculture department officials told the newspaper. Infrastructure for livestock, including chicken coops and dairy barns, were destroyed and entire plantations are gone. Due to Puerto Rico's ongoing economic recession, the island imports around 85 percent of its food for consumption, the Times said. Puerto Rico bond insurers face more losses after Hurricane Maria Tens of thousands of Puerto Ricans remain in grave danger as a dam battered by Hurricane Maria is in danger of bursting and triggering a massive deluge. The National Weather Service (NWS) said Sunday that the Guajataca Dam is nearing failure. The agency extended a flash flooding warning through Monday afternoon in the municipalities of Western Quebradillas and eastern Isabela, where the dam is located. "Stay away or be swept away" warned the NWS. "River banks and culverts can become unstable and unsafe. Stay away from evacuated areas until told by emergency officials it is safe to return." Guajataca Dam, which holds a man-made lake, is already releasing water, Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló told CNN on Sunday. "Right now, as it stands, a couple of hours after I went through Isabela, part of the dam did break, it is releasing water," he said. "And that dam is partly concrete, partly soil. So as water runs through, erosion starts having its toll on the dam and my concern is at some point it will break." Rosselló urged residents to evacuate the area on Saturday, but local officials told NBC News the number of those leaving remains small.The Guajataca Dam crisis comes after Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico as a massively powerful storm, killing 10, flooding neighborhoods and leaving millions without power or communication. Hurricane Maria was the strongest storm to strike Puerto Rico since 1928. Puerto Rico's fragile economy dealt new blow by Maria Chan Lo is racing against the clock to save thousands of dollars of supplies at his sushi restaurant in San Juan’s Condado beachfront community. He has roughly $16,000-worth of perishable goods stored in his restaurant Nagoya Sushi & Tiki Bar - in jeopardy as the battered island waits for power and water to be re-established. “I give it about three or four days maximum if the (power) doesn’t come back on and there are no generators available,” he said. “Everything will have to be thrown out.” ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Source News : CNN, USATODAY IF YOU LIKE VIDEO PLEASE subscribe to my channel You Click Subscribe: https://goo.gl/uBnEBa Website: https://goo.gl/uBnEBa Thanks You For Watch

The Department of Homeland Security confirmed that the Jones Act waiver had been allowed to expire on Sunday and would not be renewed "at this time," according to The Guardian. The Jones Act, or Merchant Marine Act of 1920, was passed to stimulate maritime commerce as well as America's shipbuilding industry. To do this, it included a provision that permitted only American ships that were built, manned and owned by American citizens to carry goods and people between American ports. Unfortunately for Puerto Rico, the Jones Act has made it so that the resulting rise in prices for consumer goods is particularly onerous to the American citizens of Puerto Rico, who continue to need cheap materials shipped to them as quickly as possible.---
