Entries from February 2009
Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx, The other day in a post about art about the Shining Path years, I included an unidentified photograph of a Peruvian retablo created by, it turns out, master artisan Nicario Jiménez Quispe.
Jiménez was born in Ayacucho, 750mg Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx, the historic center of indigenous struggle in Peru and the locus of Shining Path conflict, and now lives in the decidedly peaceful town of Naples, Florida, Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx paypal. His work is notable for its application of the traditional Andean retablo form -- essentially, Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx japan, a portable prayer box with handmade figurines depicting a narrative -- to contemporary socio-political themes in Peruvian, U.S. and Mexican societies, Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx uk.
Among the stories that Jimenez illustrates are the April 1997 rescue of hostages from the Japanese embassy in Peru; the May 1988 massacre of 47 villagers in Cayara by state counter-insurgency forces; and border-patrol roundups of Mexicans trying to cross into the United States.
Jiménez also fashions beautiful retablos on religious themes and at times will incorporate saints and the Virgin Mary into scenes of conflict and bloodshed, suggesting that these divine figures hover over us all, Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx. 150mg Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx, There is an irresistible tension in Jimenez's work between the humble materials (wood, plaster, bright paints) he uses and the enormity of the events he depicts, 20mg Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx. These small boxes invite us to peer into scenes of horror, Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx overseas, oppression and longing that we might otherwise turn our eyes from, if they weren't presented on such an intimate, human scale, Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx craiglist.
I think they are rather brilliant. Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx ebay, Here are four retablos from the artist's website that caught my eye:
In February 2009 the artist appeared with his work at arts fairs in Boca Raton, Coconut Grove and Key West, Florida, Cialis Generic 10mg No Rx australia, notes his website.

- Cialis Pen, A scene from the Spanish-Peruvian movie "The Milk Of Sorrow" by director Claudia Llosa in this photo released by the Berlinale film festival. (Berlinale via Associated Press)
Congratulations to Peruvian-born director Claudia Llosa, whose drama The Milk of Sorrow (La Teta Asustada)
captured the Golden Bear for best film at the Berlin film festival last week.
I am eager to see the film, which to my knowledge is not presently showing in Lima. If you're curious about it, here's a recent review from Variety:
With her sophomore effort "The Milk of Sorrow, Cialis Pen coupon," Peruvian director Claudia Llosa ("Madeinusa") bolsters her reputation as one of the most interesting femme helmers working in the Americas today.
Through the story of a withdrawn contemporary maidservant in Lima, the film deals subliminally but forcefully with the wartime traumas of many Peruvian women (who are said to have passed their traumas on to their daughters through breastfeeding, hence the title). Cialis Pen mexico, Ultra-arthouse item, which copped the Golden Bear at Berlin, should find many champions as well as a few naysayers, and will need passionate support wherever it goes. It bowed in Spain Feb, Cialis Pen. 13.
At first, 500mg Cialis Pen, the pic seems a slow-moving, particularly well-framed ethnographic study of life in the big city in Peru; it only gradually becomes clear that Llosa's second feature perfectly aligns form and content. The film never shows the crimes committed against women before the 1990 regime change, though the violence, Cialis Pen usa, rape and torture they suffered inform every frame. By keeping them offscreen, Llosa underlines the fact they are unspeakable crimes, not even talked about today -- though their aftermath is still felt even after the women directly concerned have passed away. Cialis Pen, Beautiful but aloof local girl Fausta (Magaly Solier, also the protag of "Madeinusa") finds herself at the deathbed of her mother (Barbara Lazon). Fausta suffers from what the locals call "the frightened breast" (pic's literal Spanish title), having inherited her mother's wartime distress through nursing, 50mg Cialis Pen.
Paralyzed with fear, the girl has inserted a potato in her intimate parts to protect herself from the same fate as her mother. As in "Madeinusa," Peruvian realities and Llosa's light magical realism mesh to create a vivid picture of a society and its problems. 1000mg Cialis Pen, Things that might seem strange in any other context feel perfectly normal here.
The only allusions to the past of Fausta's mother are heard in the gruesome song she sings just before her death, Cialis Pen. But music will also provide Fausta with a means of escape and reconciliation, as she finds a job as a maid for an occasionally tempestuous pianist, Aida (Susi Sanchez), who takes a liking to Fausta's own improvised songs.
Though Fausta and her kind uncle (Marino Ballon) come from a poor background and practically live in a slum, Cialis Pen japan, the film finds beauty and even humor in their world. Llosa insists on marriage and natural death as normal parts of the cycle of life -- and as a contrast to the chaos that preceded the period in which the pic is set.
Solier's largely passive performance makes sense in context, though it will turn some people against an already sober film. Cialis Pen, Technically, "The Milk of Sorrow" is a treat, starting with Natasha Braier's composed lensing and Frank Gutierrez's languid but precise editing rhythm. 30mg Cialis Pen, Warm-blooded guitar score is a nice touch, but unaccompanied songs sung by the protags are the true key to the drama.
Llosa's film follows on the heels of a growing trend in art and literature to explore the brutal events of the Shining Path
era of the 1980s and '90s. Nearly 70,000 Peruvians died or disappeared between 1980 and 2000 as a result of the armed conflict between Maoist Shining Path guerillas and Peru's military.
Some notable books in English and artworks that address the Shining Path conflict and its legacy include:
- The Eye that Cries, by Lika Mutal / photo by Santiago Stucchi
- Nicholas Shakespeare's 2002 novel The Dancer Upstairs, which is based on the events that led to the capture of Abimael Guzman, the leader of the Shining Path movement;
- Ann Patchett's novel Bel Canto, Cialis Pen australia, based on the 1996 Tupac Amaru takeover of the Japanese ambassadorial residence in Lima;
- Chilean artist Iván Navarro’s ‘Holeway’ series 9007) includes an optical-illusion sculpture titled "Sendero Luminoso"; one critic notes that in this word "escape is suggested, but not possible; there is a menacing tone to [Navarro's] funhouse allusion";
- Artists working in traditional crafts media have begun to depict events from the Shining Path conflict in three-dimensional retablos.
- Retablo by Nicario Jimenez depicting indigenous people caught in violent conflict between Shining Path and state forces
I'm sure that there are many more intriguing works of art, film and literature that explore the Shining Path years. Can readers recommend any others.
"Sendero Luminoso and the Trauma of Peru," from gci275, for a history of SL through 2003.

Erythromycin And Newborns, Lola had an eventful morning. El Fotografo and I took her for a long stroll along the Malecón in Miraflores, overlooking the ocean, and in the course of one and a half hours she met:
We had been walking for an hour when we ran into Pepa. Erythromycin And Newborns india
, The eerie thing about Lola's mother is she looks exactly like Lola -- a slim, low-slung black European Lab with a delicately shaped head. EF has spotted Pepa several times by the Malecón lighthouse in the last year, but this was my first time meeting maman since we adopted Lola
in late 2007.
Pepa was carrying a tennis ball in her mouth, 40mg Erythromycin And Newborns, and Lola immediately wanted it and started growling and barking. At her own mother, Erythromycin And Newborns. What a letdown.
Fifteen minutes later, 100mg Erythromycin And Newborns, EF saw Oso -- Lola's father -- walking with his owner in Yitzhak Rabin park. In contrast with her aggression toward Pepa, Lola began wagging her tail and jumping all over Oso like a 3-month-old puppy.
Oso (a big black bear of a Lab) licked his daugher on the face while Oso's owner exclaimed, "Tu hija, 50mg Erythromycin And Newborns, Oso. Mi nieta Erythromycin And Newborns, !" (Your daughter. My granddaughter!)
It wasn't over yet. Erythromycin And Newborns ebay, We waved goodbye to Lola's father and her human grandfather and started down the narrow curving sidewalk toward Larcomar. A group of five or so people came toward us, led by Vargas Llosa in a red baseball cap.
"Like Jesus and the Apostles!" EF said under his breath as they squeezed by, Erythromycin And Newborns.
Lola just sniffed at the famous writer's pants.
I have no idea who the other four people were, Erythromycin And Newborns overseas. EF thinks they were syncophants (every time you open a Lima newspaper, there's another article on The Great Peruvian Writer); I'm included to think Wife, Friends, Erythromycin And Newborns us, Children.
Bumping into Vargas Llosa (or rather, having my dog smell his ankles) made me want to compliment the writer. There wasn't time to do it, but if I could have said anything, 500mg Erythromycin And Newborns, it would have been, "Thank you for In Praise of the Stepmother."
This short novel centers on a love triangle between a self-absorbed widower, his sensuous young wife and the widower's Cupid-like son. 750mg Erythromycin And Newborns, It's dark, erotic, funny, perverse. My favorite scenes are of the older man spending hours clipping his nose hairs and gazing at himself in the bathroom mirror, Erythromycin And Newborns mexico, clueless that his son is seducing his stepmother down the hall. It's sad and ironic and all too human, how the widower bungles things.

She and her boyfriend were holding up a sign that said "Neither bulls in the Plaza nor cattle in the slaughterhouse." They were wearing matching toro outfits and chained together.

- Generic Lumigan, MIT students and residents of Ventanilla, Peru work on the bicilavadora, a novel, inexpensive bike/washing machine. Photo / Gwyndaf Jones
Forward-thinking inventors at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created a "green" washing machine that runs on pedal power, mountain-bike gears and no electricity, making it ideal for rural and impoverished communities.
Last month, MIT students took the newest prototype of the "bicilavadora" machine to an orphanage in the slums of Ventanilla, Lima, Generic Lumigan uk, where volunteers put it through its paces, announced MIT News:
In many developing countries, electricity is unreliable or unavailable and water must be carried by hand, so conventional modern washing machines are not an option. Washing clothes can take up a significant amount of time, and doing laundry in open streams or lakes can add to water pollution, so the availability of a human-powered washing machine could make a big difference to the quality of life.
A pedal-powered washing machine that MIT students and staff built mostly from bicycle parts and empty barrels could solve many of these problems, Generic Lumigan canada, and at the same time could be built locally and thereby create jobs.
Under development for almost four years, the new machine -- dubbed "bicilavadora," combining the Spanish words for bicycle and washing machine -- got its most rigorous workout last month when a team of MIT students took the latest prototype to an orphanage in the slums called Ventanilla outside Lima, Peru, Generic Lumigan. With 670 resident children, the home generates enough laundry to keep the washer perpetually busy.
"The orphanage was like an oasis in the slums of Ventanilla," says Lisa Tacoronte, a junior in mechanical engineering who worked on the project. 250mg Generic Lumigan, As the MIT team worked to set up the machine, "many of the children would watch us work, ask us questions at the same time or try to help us by holding things, or handing us tools while we built it."
The machine was designed to be easy and inexpensive to manufacture, mostly using parts and tools that are readily available almost everywhere in the developing world.
- Filling the bicilavadora with water before taking it for a spin
An earlier version of the washing machine, developed by mechanical engineering graduate student Radu Raduta, won first prize in the MIT IDEAS competition in 2005, Generic Lumigan coupon. Generic Lumigan, That resulted in some funding for further development, which led Raduta to improve the design of the machine's inner drum so that it could be more easily manufactured and transported.
The machine's outer housing is made from a standard oil drum cut apart and welded back together to make a much shorter barrel, because "a full 55-gallon barrel is more laundry than any human can pedal," explains Gwyndaf Jones, a D-Lab instructor who worked on the earlier version and who led this year's Peru field trip. The inner, rotating drum is made from a set of identical plastic pieces bolted together, 200mg Generic Lumigan, which can be taken apart and stored flat for easy transportation. That was the key part of Raduta's design.
"The hardest part to build is the inner drum," Raduta explains, "because it's submerged in water, and full of clothing that can have metal buttons, which abrades the inner walls. It has to be stiff enough to keep its shape, but if it's bare steel it will rust, and paint will peel off." The key part of his thesis research was figuring out how to make the drum strong enough, cheap enough and easy and inexpensive to ship, Generic Lumigan. His latest version is made from molded plastic panels, 150mg Generic Lumigan, and when disassembled it is compact enough to fit in a suitcase -- which is how the students took it to Peru for the January trip.
The "motor" of the machine consists of a bicycle frame, minus its wheels, with the chain running forward to a gear at the end of the washer drum's shaft. "It uses a standard mountain bike gear range," Jones says. 20mg Generic Lumigan, "The highest gear is the spin cycle, and the lowest gear is the wash cycle."
The test was not a total success: Some water leaked around the edges of the barrel, which could cause rust, and very inexpensive bearings used for the shaft were too stiff. Generic Lumigan, But the basic design was well proven out, and with a few small changes an updated version should be able to handle the intensive workload. Further tests will be carried out this spring by other students.
While crucial pieces such as the inner drum segments were brought along from MIT, others including the outer drum and its supporting structure were built on-site. "We improvised for whatever we didn't have and often learned how from locals like Wilbur and Gennard, Generic Lumigan paypal," two of the older orphanage residents, Tacoronte says. "For example, we were unable to cut the two sides for the door on the outer drum that were parallel to the curved surface. Wilbur took up a chisel and went at it with a hammer, Generic Lumigan. The door was done in seconds."
She found the experience very inspiring. "The more time I spent there and the more amazing people I met, Generic Lumigan usa, the more passionate and determined I became about finishing the lavadora and making sure it worked," she says. After the first test run, with the high-gear spin cycle successfully eliminating most of the water from the drum, she says, "The moment they pulled out the merely damp sheets was exhilarating."
Great teamwork, MIT inventors and Ventanilla cyclists. I hope that the updated version will be ready for testing soon, Generic Lumigan craiglist

Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive

, Okay. I didn't invent that headline. I swiped it from a book about small and miniature animals titled Microlivestock: Little-known Small Animals with Promising Economic Futures
(1991), published by the U.S. Office of International Affairs and the National Research Council, 100mg Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive
The mountain vizcacha, a furry rabbit-like rodent that lives in Peru, Bolivia, 500mg Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive, Chile and Argentina, is featured in chapter 24 of Microlivestock, which also has a lot to say about small animals you already know about (turkey, rabbit, quail), Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive usa, small animals you may never had heard of (agouti, coypu, hutia) and small animals that sound like the products of dubious genetic experiments (the Giant Rat, Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive uk, micro-cattle, the micro-goat and the micro-pig).
I don't think the northern vizcacha, the species of mountain vizcacha that is native to Peru, would like to hear what this book has to say: Poor people in remote places like the Andes need to raise and eat more small animals like (for example) the vizcacha, Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive. The message is couched in terms that sound appealing if you are a field manager with an NGO that works to alleviate hunger in developing countries, or if you are a farmer in La Paz who can't afford to keep cows and sheep to sustain your family.
If you are a wild vizcacha living with 100 of your relatives in a cozy rock-warren on Mount Ausangate, 30mg Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive, on the other hand, hearing that a committee of livestock experts claims you make good eatin' is a bummer.
- photo c. 1000mg Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive, Rodrigo Verdugo
I suspect that no vizcacha in Peru has gotten wind of its promising economic future, however, because what vizcachas mainly do is sun themselves on rocks. Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive, It can get very cold in the Andes regions where the vizcacha lives, between 3,000 to 5,000 meters above sea level, and so vizcachas need those sun baths and their thick furry coats to survive. That extreme furryness also is what makes them cute to the point of redonkulousness. (See redonk Photo-shopped image at end of post.)
Other key facts about the northern vizcacha (also spelled "viscacha"):
- it has a long furry tail;
- it is related to the chinchilla;
- it is vegetarian;
- it is very social and lives in large groups in rock warrens separated into family "apartments";
- it is nonaggressive and nonterritorial; when confronted with danger, 10mg Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive, it issues high-pitched squeals to warn other vizcachas to flee to the warren.
You might think think that the people who makes coats and collars and muffs of animal fur would be eager to get their hands on the timid northern vizcacha. Ironically, the animal is so small (weighing between 2 and 4 pounds) that hunters and furriers can't be bothered skinning it. There are bigger mountain vizcacha in other parts of South America, and those cousins are the targets of hunters and farmers, 40mg Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive
, who treat them as pests because they eat grassland for cattle.
In contrast, Peru's northern vizcacha leads a pretty idyllic life. It might make an occasional meal for a puma or a campesino, but generally other beings leave it alone, 50mg Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive.
Unless large numbers of motivated people begin to get serious about raising vizcachas for rodent stew, this small animal's personal economic future appears promising.
- photo courtesy god knows what PhotoShop maniac. Does Flagyl Interfere With Oral Contraceptive paypal, I found the image on www.kikourou.net, where a French runner who calls himself "vizcacha" posted it in reference to his blog. Bon chance!

, The odd blend of flavors exploded on my tongue: Sweet strawberry and hot jalapeno. Yikes. 100mg How Does Diflucan Work
, Welcome to ice cream in the Land of the Inca, where jaded taste buds are courted by unusual and sometimes explosive flavor combinations.
The ice cream that sent me running for ice water a few days ago was a neon-orange product called Sin Parar Hot ("Non Stop Hot"), 30mg How Does Diflucan Work. It's a cup of highly sweetened strawberry ice cream spiked with spicy flavor bombs -- a weird combination that Nestle/D'Onofrio dreamed up to appeal to kids and teens.
El Híjo was introduced to it by his 24-year-old cousin, who has a weak spot for Dunkin Donuts and trendy junk food, How Does Diflucan Work. How Does Diflucan Work us, (He grew up in a macrobiotic house. Go figure.)
Another hot flavor (figuratively) this summer is Inca Cola -- the cloyingly sweet yellow beverage that is Peru's best-selling soda.
D'Onofrio ice-cream makers teamed with producers of Inca Cola in Trujillo to produce a supposedly limited-edition Inca Cola popsicle that sells for 1.20 soles each, reported Living in Peru, 1000mg How Does Diflucan Work.
So far, How Does Diflucan Work paypal, I've heard mixed responses to the popsicle among El Hijo's 10-year-old friends: "Ricisimo!" "No me gusto." "Mi favorito." Kids either love it or hate it.
My own tastes run to creamy concoctions, like Frio Rico MaxX Caramel Maní (Carmel Peanut) and the strawberry Kirico pop, How Does Diflucan Work coupon, which has an annoying habit of falling apart when you bite into it. How Does Diflucan Work, The flavor of Peruvian ice cream that most impresses visitors, though, is lucuma, made from a delicately flavored tropical fruit that is creamy and gentle-tasting, like a banana. How Does Diflucan Work usa, Lucuma is so popular in Peru that it's one of the country's top three flavors. If you buy a "tri-color" pint in Peru, the three flavors will be vanilla, How Does Diflucan Work craiglist, strawberry and lucuma, How Does Diflucan Work canada, not vanilla, strawberry and chocolate.
While the streets of Lima are thronged with D'Onofrio and Lamborgini ice cream carts during the summer, 20mg How Does Diflucan Work, you won't find my favorite ice creams sold by these vendors.
Two days ago, I tasted a homemade coconut ice cream at San Antonio Bakery that brought back memories of The Frieze, on Miami Beach.
And I will have to return to dusty San Eulalia one day just to taste the out-of-this-world avocado ice cream I tasted there last winter, How Does Diflucan Work. The woman who sells it from her tiny store along the highway churns it herself, just a few pints a day.

- Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements, image courtesy L.A. Times blog
Word has been out for a while that dwindling meltwater from Peru's tropical glaciers will lead to dire water shortages in 40 years
unless radical measures are taken to find and conserve new sources. Most of the water used along Peru's coastal region, including Lima, originates in the glaciers of the Andes, which are receding due to rapid climate change.
Climate patterns in the southern hemisphere, however, Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements uk, don't worry most U.S. citizens, who mistakenly believe that their own lives will be minimally impacted by climate change.
Changes are coming sooner than they think.
In his first interview, the U.S. Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu is predicting the end of California agriculture and the onset of catastrophic drought in California by the year 2100 unless measures are taken, reports the action group Stop Global Warming:
As the Los Angeles Times reported, "Chu warned of water shortages plaguing the West and Upper Midwest and particularly dire consequences for California, his home state, the nation's leading agricultural producer, Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements. In a worst case, Chu said, up to 90% of the Sierra snowpack could disappear, Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements mexico, all but eliminating a natural storage system for water vital to agriculture."
Read the entire interview with Chu
"I don't think the American public has gripped in its gut what could happen," Chu said. "We're looking at a scenario where there's no more agriculture in California." And, he added, "I don't actually see how they can keep their cities going either."
I'm gratified that Chu is putting climate change at the top of the country's list of priorities. Perhaps now the United States will join the rest of the developed world and take action against this national and global threat. 500mg Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements, It starts with citizens accepting in their "gut," as Chu says, that really bad events can and will unfold in their own environment. Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements, California is highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change because much of it is desert irrigated by Sierra meltwater. In the worst case scenario, 90% of the Sierra snowpack could disappear by the end of the century, which would end farming in California and would imperil life in the cities as well.
While most Americans give little thought to their water supply, writer Joan Didion argues in her 1979 essay "Holy Water" that native Californians obsess over it:
Some of us who live in arid parts of the world think about water with a reverence others might find excessive, 150mg Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements. The water I will draw tomorrow from my tap in Malibu is today crossing the Mojave Desert from the Colorado River, and I like to think about exactly where that water is. ...As it happens my own reverence for water has always taken the form of this constant meditation upon where the water is, of an obsessive interest not in the politics of water but in the waterworks themselves, in the movement of water through aqueducts and siphons and pumps and forebays and afterbays and weirs and drains, in plumbing on the grand scale.
What once appeared to be the private obsessions of a brilliant writer are now emerging as the concerns of the entire U.S. nation, Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements
. 250mg Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements
, California and coastal Peru. Two desert regions that hug the Pacific, are prone to earthquakes, and depend on the melting drip of mountain glaciers to the east.
Two regions that could die of thirst by the end of the century, unless (to quote the American poet Karl Shapiro) we find new ways to "flood the daylong valleys like the Nile."
Here is the complete poem by Shapiro, "California Winter," for those of you like poetry that is both hopeful and dark:
It is winter in California, 750mg Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements, and outside
Is like the interior of a florist shop:
A chilled and moisture-laden crop
Of pink camellias lines the path; and what
Rare roses for a banquet or a bride,
So multitudinous that they seem a glut.
A line of snails crosses the golf-green lawn
From the rosebushes to the ivy bed;
An arsenic compound is distributed
For them. Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements, The gardener will rake up the shells
And leave in a corner of the patio
The little mound of empty shells, like skulls.
By noon the fog is burnt off by the sun
And the world's immensest sky opens a page
For the exercise of a future age;
Now jet planes draw straight lines, parabolas,
And x's, 10mg Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements, which the wind, before they're done,
Erases leisurely or pulls to fuzz.
It is winter in the valley of the vine.
The vineyards crucified on stakes suggest
War cemeteries, but the fruit is pressed,
The redwood vats are brimming in the shed,
And on the sidings stand tank cars of wine, Dangers Of Cipro And Supplements australia,
For which bright juice a billion grapes have bled.
And skiers from the snow line driving home
Descend through almond orchards, olive farms.
Fig tree and palm tree - everything that warms

Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children
- A baby monkey (related to the yellow-tailed) riding on his adopted father's back in the tropical forests of northern Peru; monkey protection program run by IKAMA Peru (photo courtesy IKAMA Peru)
, I could devote this entire blog to news about wildlife in Peru, where new species are discovered weekly and, conversely, where threats to native habitats have eradicated hundreds of existing species in the time that it takes to build a shopping mall.
Because I focus on daily life in Lima and climate change in the Andes, however, I have to pass up many newsworthy stories about animals in Peru. The one, 50mg Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children, however, caught my eye since it concerns one of the world's rarest (and might I add, most adorable) mammals, which is unfortunately about to become extinct.
Don't feel bad if you've never heard of the yellow-tailed woolly monkey (Oreonax flavicauda). This elusive primate lives in the cloud forests of northern Peru, Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children australia, where there are only about 250 in existence (one group claims there are up to 1,000 of these monkeys). Regardless of the exact number, they are so rare that for nearly 50 years (1926 to 1973) not a single yellow-tailed woolly was sighted, Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children.
Then in 1974 scientists identified small groups in Cajamarca and in the Rio Alto Mayo area, where they were first recorded by Alexander von Humboldt in 1820. Since then, Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children coupon
, their numbers have hovered at marginal levels, inspiring conservation efforts by biologists and animal protection groups
Now the yellow-tailed woolly monkey has been included on a list of the 25 most endangered primates in the world, reports Living in Peru:
Specialists stated that the monkey had been declared endangered because of the destruction of Peru's rain forests and the migration of humans to the area.
"There are currently less than 1,000 monkeys, which for a species is nothing, Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children japan, that's why this monkey is just a step from extinction," said Fanny Cornejo, a researcher at the University of San Marcos.
She pointed out that the Woolly monkey had been on the International Primatological Society's "Most endangered species in the world" list since 2006. 250mg Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children, At an international conference in Scotland, Cornejo stated the animal was completely helpless in Peru, thus confirming the IPS's decision to keep the monkey among the top 25 most endangered primates. Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children, "The main threat these animals face is the destruction of the rainforests and the migration of humans that invade the areas where they live," said Cornejo.
Unlike the fictional Paddington Bear
, who emigrated from "deepest, darkest Peru" to London's Paddington railway station with a pea coat and a suitcase in hand, the yellow-tailed woolly monkey cannot survive outside its native habitat. Unable to adapt to life outside its native cloud forest, the yellow-tailed monkey now depends on the cooperation of humankind to preserve its habitat. Given how recklessly we humans have destroyed the rain forest in the past, that cooperation appears very fragile, unless more concerned people intercede.
One positive move in this direction was the United States' agreement in October 2008 to redirect $25 million of Peru's external debt into local funds to protect the country's tropical forests, 10mg Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children, including habitats of the Peruvian woolly monkey, reports the U.S. government.
A few facts about the yellow-tailed woolly mammal that attracted my interest:
- The monkey is part of a larger family of woolly monkeys, 100mg Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children, who are known for their long, thick fur that protects them from the cold. The yellow-tailed woolly monkey's fur is deep reddish brown, with a yellow tint running on the underside of the tail;
- It eats fruit (particularly ficus fruit), as well as leaves, flowers and buds, 30mg Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children, and lives in the tree canopy;
- It has a prehensile tail, which it uses as a fifth arm, and can leap distances up to 15 meters;
- Yellow-tailed woollies live in polygamous, male-dominated societies, 20mg Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children, and they communicate by high, puppy-like barks.
You can help the yellow-tailed woolly monkey survive into the next century by supporting programs and groups that help endangered animals or preserve their habitats
Some of these efforts include the EDGE (Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered) program and the Neotropical Primate Conservation group in Peru, which is launching a yellow-tailed woolly protection program in the Amazon to help communities fend off poachers, Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children.
Another group that is protecting yellow-tailed woolly monkeys is IKAMA Peru, which runs an animal shelter for injured animals and abandoned young. I was not able to navigate their website successfully in a language other than French, but I did find a useful link to an English-language site associated with IKAMA where people can "adopt" a rescued baby monkey online.
A motherless baby monkey (born Sept, Side Effects Of Amoxicillin In Children india. 2008) was brought to the shelter and is currently seeking sponsorship, notes the site:
Tingkishap is a male baby woolly monkey. When he arrived at our shelter after we confiscated it he was very small, very stressed and cried all day long. Now he is in Tarangue and goes out to the forest with the whole group of adults who love him. Tingkishap was adopted by Chayu, the alpha male of this group.
One of the online photos shows Tingkishap riding on Chayu's back(see above).

- Gluten Free Erythromycin, The Urban Air Cleaner UAC-20, a.k.a. "Super Tree," is busy sucking up fumes in lovely downtown Surquillo
What is it with Surquillo
The working-class Lima district is making headlines for advocating innovative, 750mg Gluten Free Erythromycin, sometimes radical solutions to urban problems.
First Surquillo's mayor Gustavo Sierra raised eyebrows around the world when he suggested that Peru solve its drug problem by legalizing illicit drugs and handling them through the national health ministry. (Sierra later claimed that he was misquoted and that he does not want to legalize drugs, but, 150mg Gluten Free Erythromycin, rather, he wants the Peruvian government to fund programs to treat drug addicts. Read his refutation in Spanish here.)
Now Surquillo is tackling the less-controversial problem of air pollution by installing a state-of-the-art air purifier nicknamed the "Super Tree," which can absorb as much CO2 in one day as do 1,200 trees, Gluten Free Erythromycin mexico, according to the machine's manufacturer.
Evidently, the city is taking its motto "Surquillo Esta Cambiando...Cambia Tú Tambien" (Surquillo Is Changing...You're Changing, Too) very seriously.
Israel Ruiz of Living in Peru reports:
In an effort to reduce air pollution in some of Peru's most contaminated cities, Tierra Nuestra SAChas installed its first air purifier on the corner of Angamos and Aviacion Avenues in the Limean district of Surquillo, Gluten Free Erythromycin. 500mg Gluten Free Erythromycin, The company explained that the air purifier can absorb as much carbon dioxide as 1,200 trees and at the same time rid 200,000 square meters of air of dust and harmful bacteria every day.
Tierra Nuestra explained that the machine could also filter up to 25 percent of the sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide emitted by vehicles.
The machine, 1000mg Gluten Free Erythromycin, which costs $100,000, uses water to filter the air it absorbs and costs $6.50 a day to operate. Gluten Free Erythromycin usa, Tierra Nuestra stated that at the end of each day the dirty water could be disposed of in sewage pipes. Gluten Free Erythromycin, The mayor of Surquillo stated the district had not invested one cent in the machine but that everything had been financed by Tierra Nuestra and their sponsors.
It is estimated that 400 of these machines are needed throughout Lima. Tierra Nuestra hopes to set up 100 by the end of the year.
As readers have commented on Living in Peru, it is troubling that the city of Lima has no plans to fund the installation of the Urban Air Cleaners and appears to be relying on private investors to bankroll the project.

If there is any city that needs to detoxify its air supply, it's Lima, Gluten Free Erythromycin craiglist
. Air contamination levels in the city are nearly nine times higher than standards set by the World Health Organization
, and a series of studies on the issue have failed to spur any action.
If the Super Trees really are effective at purifying the air, Gluten Free Erythromycin paypal, Lima (and not just Surquillo) should fund this and other efforts ASAP.
Another important change that needs to take place is reducing emissions by cars, trucks and combis. The latter contribute heavily to Lima's air pollution problem, as Pervian Times noted last August:
Air pollution in Lima, which is primarily due to the high number of old motorized vehicles and the oversupply of public transport vehicles, Gluten Free Erythromycin uk, has been exacerbated over the past decade by a series of policies and measures that were adopted without due consideration for their impact on the environment or, specifically, air pollution and air quality. Gluten Free Erythromycin ebay, Attempts by various governmental agencies, such as the Ombudsman's Office, and the Municipality of Lima, have been both insufficient and ineffective mainly because they have been isolated and palliative efforts.In her most recent report Merino urged the Municipality of Lima to enforce its Comprehensive Urban Transportation Plan to remove approximately 17,000 old heavily polluting diesel buses to "solve the oversupply of public transport that produces enormous quantities of contaminating gases."
Solutions are available. Now it's time to act.

- Zithromax For Dogs, Artist's depiction of discriminatory laws at some Peruvian beaches that prohibit maids from swimming during daylight hours (until 7 p.m. at Asia beach)
It sounds like a scene straight out of the Jim Crow era
in the American South, but it's happening today in coastal Peru: discriminatory laws in some exclusive seaside resorts prohibit maids (nearly all of whom are poor Andean and black women) from swimming on the beach during daylight hours.
As Juan Arellano described in Global Voices Online in 2007, the beaches where this discrimination is practiced are located south of Lima, among them the fashionable resort town of Asia. Wealthy Limeños flock to beach houses in Asia during the brief summer months, 10mg Zithromax For Dogs, bringing with them their trusted family maids and nannies to look after the children. But while the vactioners have full access to the sand and surf, their servants do not.
Apartheid-like laws passed by homeowners' associations in Asia forbid maids and nannies, Zithromax For Dogs coupon, or "domestic employees," as they are called, from swimming at the beach between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. Rules of conduct for homeowners also stipulate that maids must wear a uniform and cannot wear a bathing suit -- a cruel twist, given the intensity of Peru's summer sun, notes Hypathia's Daughter.
The unjust laws at Asia have roused both anger and protest in Peru, Zithromax For Dogs. On a fundamental level, the town's discriminatory policies violate Peruvian laws "that state that Peruvian beaches cannot be privatized and must be open and accessible for all," as Alejandro of LAX-LIM points out, 750mg Zithromax For Dogs. However, the political pull of the homeowners' association at Asia obscured that legal contradiction -- at least for a while.
Then, two years ago, Zithromax For Dogs japan, Peru's National Coordination of Human Rights, an umbrella group of various human-rights, anti-discrimination and anti-racism groups, in coordination with Amnesty International, organized a protest at Asia beach. The group issued a call for concerned citizens to come to Asia dressed as maids and nannies on January 28, 500mg Zithromax For Dogs, 2007, to show their solidarity with household workers at the resort. Zithromax For Dogs, The outpouring of support for "Operation Smart Maid," as it was called, was enormous, as was world media coverage of the event. (See 1/27/07 wire story from EFE.)
About 1,000 activists, 30mg Zithromax For Dogs, domestic workers and even foreigners turned up at the beach dressed in maids' uniforms and carrying signs that read "Enough with Racism" and "Racism Be Gone," reported EFE:
The peaceful march moved through the security gate that is usually closed to keep out the public and headed for the beach, where demonstrators formed a human chain and later took a dip in the cold Pacific waters as astonished visitors and police watched.
"Our goal is to call for reflection on the situation of domestic workers who suffer from beastly discrimination and can only go to the beaches at nightfall," Mar Perez, who runs the economic, 40mg Zithromax For Dogs, social and cultural rights program for the National Human Rights Coordinator, told EFE.
Perez said the protest was intended to "plant the seed of the citizens' movement against discrimination."
Organizer Laura Balbuena provided an up-close look at the "Operation Smart Maid"
protest on her blog Hypathia's Daughter
(which is intriguingly subtitled, "A Female Philosopher Lost in the World of Peruvian Feminism"). Zithromax For Dogs craiglist
, See the photo below.
- "Smart Maid" protestors infiltrate the ocean at Asia Beach, Peru, Jan, Zithromax For Dogs. 28, 2007 (photo courtesy Hypathia's Daughter)
So, did the peaceful protests at Asia end the discriminatory practices there.
Sadly, no, Zithromax For Dogs ebay.
Two years later, status-seeking Limeños still flock to Asia, local laws still prohibit maids from swimming in the ocean, and maids still sit on the parched sands in their uncomfortable blue uniforms. 50mg Zithromax For Dogs, The flurry of attention garnered by the protest did not lead to a legal challenge against the Asia homeowners' association. Zithromax For Dogs, What will it take for the discrimination to end. I suspect it will require a dual effort of raising shame among wealthy homeowners and of a concerted legal effort backed up by international aid groups that can put pressure on local and national government.
In the meantime, the "Asia Problem" (as I see it -- I believe I'm in the minority here in Lima) rests with the individual. If you are a homeowner at Asia, you can opt to register a complaint with the association. You can give your maid a nice bathing suit and let her swim with the children that she is supervising. And if you are invited to be a guest at an Asia beach house, you can opt to decline and politely but clearly explain why.
As someone who might receive an invitation to play at Asia one day, I know what my response will be.

- Cipro Who Makes It, Bring on the inflatable breasts. It's summertime in Lima
It's summer in Lima. It's hot, there's no air-conditioning, all the pitucos
are at the beach, Cipro Who Makes It usa
, and the city street-sweepers are roasting in their masks and full-body jumpsuits.
I haven't mentioned the pitucos before. I was going to get around to it.
The word roughly means "snob," but that doesn't begin to cover it, Cipro Who Makes It. In Peru a pituco (or pituca, if female) usually refers to a white person with money (some or a lot) who flaunts his or her status.
I don't categorize all financially stable/rich Limenos as pitucos, Cipro Who Makes It uk. My criteria are stricter: You have to be a conspicuous status-seeker, bordering on the ridiculous. Flashy designer clothes and accessories, scary evidence of encounters with plastic surgeons, Cipro Who Makes It us, and showing off one's servants are often part of the package. Cipro Who Makes It, Thus, an elegant woman muching on salad in San Antonio Bakery is not necessarily a pituca in my book, but a dyed blonde in 4-inch-high Jimmy Choos w/fake boobs, wearing a fox-fur vest when it's only 60 degrees F outside = una pictuca grande. (I saw two women dressed in this identical outfit at Pescados Capitales restaurant several months ago. Their faces and bodies were so surgically altered, it was painful to look at them.)
Here are some memorable pictuco spottings from the last year:
(1) I was walking Lola through a park in Miraflores which is cross-crossed by running lanes. A middle-aged lady in a baby-pink running suit was jogging through the park at an achingly slow pace. Behind her trailed a small Andean maid in a blue smock and white apron carrying the woman's water bottle. God forbid la señora should have to carry her own water!
(2) Last September Sammy's school held a kermesse, Cipro Who Makes It canada, which is an elaborate fair with games, rides and raffles. Tons of items are raffled off, from cheap plastic toys to 100 soles restaurant tickets to microwaves and vacations abroad. Lots of the mothers at these things bring their maids to the kermesse to help out with the children, Cipro Who Makes It.
I had a major pituca attack when I saw one lady in skin tight jeans and high heels (face almost alien-looking as a result of excessive plastic surgery) being followed by two uniformed maids, Cipro Who Makes It india, who were carting stacks of toys and kitchen items won at the raffle. One woman, two maids. Of course, the woman didn't deign to carry a single raffle item herself.
(3) The third egregious example I didn't witness, Cipro Who Makes It paypal. Cipro Who Makes It, I heard about it from my friend La Arquitecta, who is married to a Peruvian but isn't one herself. (That came out sounding nasty. Perdoname.) My friend designs and decorates homes for well-heeled Limenos and is a bit of a pituco expert.
One day La Arquitecta was walking along the Malecon in Miraflores when she bumped into a client, who was walking parading her little toy dog. 150mg Cipro Who Makes It, The dog was dolled up in a gingham outfit, and The Client began to brag that said dog had a Nana.
A Nana is like a nanny but more pretentious, Cipro Who Makes It. The word "nana" is Italian for grandmother; in Peru is usually connotes a live-in maid who is deeply devoted to the welfare of a human child.
Plenty of rich Limenos have maids who walk their dogs, but to boast that you have a Nana for your pooch is pure, status-seeking insanity, Cipro Who Makes It canada.
The Nana even accompanies the dog when the family flies to Miami for shopping expeditions, explained the client. It is so necessary. Cipro Who Makes It, And, of course, the dog has its own bedroom in the house, which is in need of redecorating...
La Arquitecta almost barfed at the doggie-Nana-decorating nonsense and had to leave quickly before she said something that jeopardized her financial/social relationship with The Client. Cipro Who Makes It india, Well, getting back to summer in Lima.
What people do here in January and February is go to the beach. If you are part of the elite, you go to one of the exclusive beaches south of Lima, off Panamericana Sur, Cipro Who Makes It usa.
One of the trendiest beaches is Asia, Cipro Who Makes It. I have never been to this beach and to be honest, I am repelled by the idea because of a racist law in the community that prohibits maids from going on the beach during daylight hours. Signs on the beach make this clear for illiterate workers by depicting a woman in a maid's outfit crossed out within a red circle: No Maids Allowed.
Truly, it's like something out of the preCivil Rights-era Deep South.
Fortunately, some activists are fighting the discrimination. More about that tomorrow.

- Zithromax Chlamidia, Innovative octopus causa from Andina Restaurant, in Portland, Oregon
Looks like Epicurious was spot on
in predicting that Peruvian would become the hot food trend of 2009.
Bon Appétit magazine named Lima the Next Great Food City in its January '09 issue. Writer Daniel Duane hangs out with Gaston Acurio for a day, eating his way through some of Lima's top restaurants, including Malabar, Toshiro’s Sushi Bar and La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, 150mg Zithromax Chlamidia, and concludes that Peruvian food ranks with the best:
Want a new fusion cuisine sourced from the world's best ingredients. Star chefs with personalities as big as their palates. A good exchange rate for the dollar. Welcome to Peru's capital city, the next great global foodie destination.
I agree with Duane and Acurio that the eating's great in Lima, although I wouldn't count Chifa Kam Men among its best restaurants, Zithromax Chlamidia
. (El Fotografo disagrees with me. Zithromax Chlamidia paypal
, We ate there yesterday, and he wolfed down a ginger fish dish that made such an impression, he wants to order it again tonight.)
Add another eatery to the Acurio restaurant empire: Chi Cha, in Cusco. Fodor's Hot List reports that:
"Acurio takes typical Peruvian dishes (such as chairo and chicharrones) and incorporates local Cusqueño ingredients (such as pork from the Huarocondo village, Chicón cheese, Zithromax Chlamidia mexico, and bread from Oropesa) to create modern interpretations."
I bet the food will be excellent since it uses fresh, local ingredients -- a key to the distinctive flavors of Peruvian cuisine.
In the United States, star Peruvian chefs are opening new restaurants and revamping existing ones so fast, 250mg Zithromax Chlamidia, it's like a Peruvian Invasion. To make the palate transformation complete, the hot drink of 2009 is the pisco sour, says the New York Daily News.
Philadelphia gets a new chifa next Tuesday Zithromax Chlamidia, when Jose Garce's Cantonese-Peruvian restaurant Chifa opens at 707 Chestnut Street, reports Foobooz. The menu includes Arroz Chaufa con Mariscos (naturally) and a Ceviche Bar with ten daily versions of ceviche. (Click here for details.)
NovoPeruano restaurant Andina in Portland has lured Peruvian native Jose Luis de Cossio from the new La Mar restaurant, in San Francisco, 100mg Zithromax Chlamidia, to become the Oregon restaurant's new executive chef. De Cossio helped Gaston Acurio expand his La Mar cevicheria franchise in Lima and Mexico City before becoming executive chef in San Francisco in October '08. After four months there, I guess he's itching to put his stamp on his own restaurant.
The big man himself, 20mg Zithromax Chlamidia, Gaston Acurio, has announced plans to open restaurants in Miami, Las Vegas and New York, reports Associated Press, Zithromax Chlamidia overseas.
"If you can sell a hamburger in Peru, why can't you sell ceviche in the U.S.?" he says of his nation's classic dish of refreshingly raw fish.
The analogy that Acurio's making refers to the relative rarity of beef in Peru, which does not have a tradition of raising cattle, Zithromax Chlamidia
. Argentina's the beef capital of South America.
Other recent Peruvian-restaurant openings that have earned favorable write-ups in the U.S. media include Camana, in Greensboro, 1000mg Zithromax Chlamidia, N.C., and Rosa de Lima, in Chicago.
The food isn't exactly gourmet, but the roasted pollo served at Pardo's Chicken is a tasty staple on the Lima dining scene. The chain opened its Zithromax Chlamidia, first U.S. restaurant in December in Coral Gables, 200mg Zithromax Chlamidia, Florida, notes Connect to Peru. That should give Pollo Tropical and Superpollo a run for their money.
Similarly, Zithromax Chlamidia australia, a Norky's chicken joint appears to have opened in Chicago in December. (Norky's is the take-out food that Fujimori orders from his jail cell in Lima.)
The folks at Jaunted did some legwork to find out which cities in the United States are home to good Peruvian restaurants. They came up with Queens, N.Y.; Hollywood; Denver; and the entire state of New Jersey (!).
Did they leave any hot spots out. Speak your mind here.
