Inside Venezuela’s Showdown: Why U.S. Aid Can’t Get Through | Dispatches        Video        The New York Times        21 February 2019

 

President Nicolás Maduro of Venezuela

has sent troops to the Colombian border

to block U.S. humanitarian aid

from entering his country.

 

The opposition promises to get the aid through,

but success hinges on whether the military

will defy his orders.

 

We went to the town of Cúcuta,

where the impasse is building to a confrontation.

The Breadmaker: on the frontline of Venezuela's bakery wars        Video        The Guardian        15 february 2019

 

In the midst of Venezuela’s

spiralling economic crisis,

Natalia and fellow members

of a socialist Chavista collective

have stepped in to take over production

at a local bakery, La Minka.

 

Authorities had suspended operations

when the owners

were accused of overpricing their loaves

and hoarding flour.

 

In March 2017,

with the tacit support of the government,

the collective began selling affordable bread.

 

This is the story of their fight

to safeguard the bakery's future

and keep the Chavista dream alive.

If It Were My Home

 

The headlines tell a lot

about the crisis in Yemen:

internal strife,

evacuations of international aid workers,

Saudi Arabian airstrikes.

 

But you may have one very basic question

that you can't easily find an answer for:

How big is Yemen, anyway?

 

You can look at maps

and check out Wikipedia

but wouldn't it be great

to just to slap an outline of Yemen

on top of a map of the United States

to get a sense of its size?

 

IfItWereMyHome.com

lets you do just that.
