Discussion about Re-Election continues Not enough Time for Constitutional Amendment / Rally

According to the constitution, President Danilo Medina can not be re-elected for a second term. The President himself shows no ambition, that he would be willing to do so. Nevertheless, since several months there are demands to change the constitution of 2010, or for a constitutional amendment to allow the reelection of the popular president.

Cesar Pina Toribio, Legal Adviser to the Government, said recently, that there was not enough time left to change the constitution before elections next year. Likewise, Cardinal Nicolás de Jesús López Rodríguez, who was very displeased for the “lax” approach of the President to Haitian issues and for his opposition to the new Criminal Law to partly permit abortions, vehemently opposed a constitutional amendment for his re-election. On the other hand Gédeon Santos, a leader of the ruling PLD party, said there was still plenty of time for a constitutional amendment. He called for a system like in the United States, where the president may be re-elected once, but then never again. On 28 January, thousands of demonstrators gathered before the Congress in Santo Domingo to demand for a re-election of President Danilo Medina. After former President Hipólito Mejía applied as a candidate for the opposition party PRM, now his party colleague Luis Abinader did the same. Leading PRM members asked Mejía to contain his own ambitions and to support Abinader. (Sources: Listín Diario, Hoy, Z101, Acento)

Less Murders due to 911 In the first six Days, more than 3,000 Calls for Noise Annoyance / Lower Murder Rate

The Vice Minister of the Presidency and speaker of the emergency call system 911, Zoraima Cuello, announced that in the first six days after the introduction of the possibility to complain on noise annoyance to the emergency number 911, the staff on the phones received 3,307 calls. At a press conference, Zoraima Cuello said: “92 percent of the calls were for noise annoyance due to loud music, seven percent of the complaints were for street merchants and workshops and one percent was for music outside the allowed time.” In 2,442 cases, the Police Department was informed and 37 businesses were fined and

838 speakers were confiscated by the police. Zoraima Cuello added: “It is good to know for the public that all reports of noise annoyance will be accepted from the authorities, but it is important to clarify that possible emergencies in the health sector will be treated with preference by the teams in the line of duty.” The Speaker of the emergency call system emphasized that the authority was in contact with the town halls to coordinate that these will not issue any permits that violate the law and cause noise pollution, especially when the election campaigns begin, in religious activities or street parties, which interfere in the peace and tranquility of the citizens. But she also made it clear once more that 911 does not accept complaints to denounce loud-speaking female neighbors, or children who cause unnecessary noise in the neighborhood. But the government never allows that the peace and tranquility of the Dominican citizens are disturbed in residential areas and neighborhoods.

In Santo Domingo, the violence since the introduction of the emergency call system 911 on May 30, according to data from the Attorney General Francisco Domínguez Brito, the rate of violent deaths fell significantly behind that in the past year. The emergency call system had a direct and positive impact on the homicide rate in Greater Santo Domingo, which declined by 213 violent deaths in comparison with the previous year. He pointed out that the statistics showed a significant and lasting decline in these cases since June, which in his opinion goes with increased surveillance, video cameras, prevention and rapid reaction of the authorities after calls from the public. Domínguez Brito said, in 2014 the murder rate was the lowest for ten years, with a reduction of 18.63 to 17.18 murders per 100,000 inhabitants. From 2004 to 2013, the murder rate in the Dominican Republic was at 18.63 to 25 murders per 100,000, and thus significantly higher than last year, said the Attorney General.

Carnaval Dominicano Mixture of Catholic Tradition and Celebration of Independence / More German Tourists February is the month of Carnival in the Dominican Republic. In the strongholds of Carnival, colorful and stately processions with masks are held traditionally every Sunday in February. The most famous place for Dominican Carnival is La Vega. Almost all national and some international stars of rank and name are coming on the stage, from Johnny Ventura and Miriam Cruz over Raulín Rodríguez and Mozart la Para up to the Colombian star Carlos Vives and the popular Dominican comedians Raymond Pozo and Miguel Céspedes. In Puerto Plata it was thought whether to move the installed stands away from the fire station, because many elderly residents complained about noise annoyance and thefts. But probably the place will be the same again this year - from next year on, major events of this kind will be carried out in the then finished amphitheater at the Fortaleza San Felipe. The typical figure of Carnival in Puerto Plata is the Taimáscaro to be seen on the cover of this issue.

Carnaval is one of the oldest traditions of the country that produced different masks in different regions. The most common and popular is certainly the Diablo cojuelo (photo). It is recorded that already in the 16th century there have been masks for carnival celebrations in Santo Domingo. Today Dominican Carnival is a mixture of celebrations of independence after the Haitian occupation and the Catholic tradition, which is why it doesn't end on Ash Wednesday as in other Catholic countries.

According to information from the Central Bank (BC), in 2014, the Germans got ahead of the French as the largest group of tourists from Europe in the Dominican Republic. At the airports of the country, 230,733 German and 229,678 French tourists arrived. Compared to the previous year 2013, it means a total of 16,582 more Germans, while there came 3,076 French less. Other important markets in Europe were Russia (180,821), Spain (150,859), United Kingdom (126,563) and Italy (82,000). Overall, last year 4,465,000 tourists arrived by plane, of which 26 per cent were of the European Union.

2014, Year of Crisis Chikungunya and Scandal in October / Only three Percent for Preventative Health Care

The year 2014 was as specified a year of crisis for the health service by the Dominican Political Observatory (Observatorio Politico Dominicano - OPD), an affiliate

institution of the Funglode. Primarily the outbreak of chikungunya has to be blamed for this, on which officially 524,297 people were contracted and some died, as well as the scandal in October, when on one single weekend eleven infants died the hospital Robert Reid Cabral in Santo Domingo. In the report published recently, Juan Pérez Osorio of OPD-Funglode pointed out on the poor results of the various base indicators that showed “some of the traditional weaknesses in the Dominican health care”. “In 2013, the Ministry of Health (MSP) spent about 60 percent of its funds for the medical treatment (45 percent for inpatient and 15 percent for outpatient care), while just three percent of the budget were spent for the preventative health care," lamented Pérez Osorio. At the same time, he said, there is a mismatch in terms of administrative expenditure (13 per cent) in comparison to other important areas, such as the provision of drugs for outpatients (eight per cent) and rehabilitation (one percent); which is higher than the average for Latin America and the Caribbean (eight percent).

Pérez Osorio said, presently the Ministry of Health disposes of more than five times as much resources as before the reform of 2001. But the resources allocated by the government funds to subsidize the part of the population which is not covered by health insurance, still are not sufficient. Furthermore, the per capita expenditure for health in the Dominican Republic is much less than in the countries of the region with comparable incomes.

Your Horoscope for February 2015 Month of Changes for Leo / Few Opportunities for Aries / Scorpio needs to be careful

This will be a month that is fully positive for you; not too rich with opportunities, but absolutely without any problems or significant barriers. If you have your own business, then you may be confident that February is the best month for total modernization. Replacing human resources, improving technical equipment - any aspect that you will dedicate some attention to will receive a powerful dynamic development.

This month is a great time to test yourself and also prove to others what you are worth. Do not forget that many things depend not just on you, but on the many people around you, each of which has their own wishes, tasks, and goals. So do not worry if something will go astray due to some external influences. Everything will happen the way it should and in the end you will certainly reach your goals.

This month will bring significantly less opportunities than you hoped for. There will not be a total disappointment or a truly insolvable problem. Most likely these problems at first glance seem insignificant, but are crucial in reality. However, falling into a fatalistic mood now would be a big mistake. You must keep calm and collected, breathe in deeply, and concentrate on the current tasks. Believe in your intuition.

This month may surprise you with a sudden turn of events. You do not have to be afraid of a possibly life-defining choice suddenly arising before you. It may define your life, in part, but the thing is that not a single option will be fully negative. You will just have to choose what feels more right to your heart, a choice that will reflect your nature the most. Do not be afraid of a sudden separation, maybe it is for the best.

You should be especially careful to avoid starting a chain of events that may bring a negative outcome. You should be patient and do not try to resolve problems in arguments. Use your diplomatic abilities, try to be as attentive as possible. Try not to get disappointed, you are not the only one having a complicated time. Collect yourself, do not get aggressive, just try to be objective in your evaluations.

There will not be any special opportunities this month. So concentrate on the current tasks, but do not try to maintain your attention on everything. If you have problems, then divide them into groups and make decisions according to their importance. You feel that now is the time to wait, to collect your strength and resources, to wait for the moment when you can suddenly attack and capture any fort.

This might be a month of changes. Not fundamental changes, but they will still influence your life. Just be careful, as you are not all-powerful and something may not go according to plan. If that will happen, then display perseverance and durability. Remember - everything is indeed in your hands and any problem may be resolved. Do not be afraid of responsibility, if you know what you do.

You have enough energy to fight and win. The main thing is to believe in yourself and do not give up, no matter what. You have lost a real opportunity more than once in the past, most likely because of your lack of decisiveness. You cannot let that happen now. You are moving in the right direction. Do not turn away, even in the moments of greatest doubts, or perhaps - especially in the moments of greatest doubts.

This month will be rich with problems, but also with possibilities. It is unlikely that you will be able to use all of these possibilities. Most of the problems will occur because of your past mistakes, which means that you will be able to get at least experience from an otherwise murky situation. The results of your work will say much more than any words or actions in the end, so nothing will go to waste. Be careful with your health.

You need to be especially careful with what you say and to whom. You may even offend your best friend by accident. Of course, he will not say anything to you and will likely forget about it immediately - that is why he is your friend. However, this happening will not reflect positive on your relationship. It’s a trivial matter, but even more serious situations are possible. In your relationship you need to be more careful.

You will be capable of stabilizing relationships that have been a source of problems since long ago. The problems that have been worrying you for a long time now will find a resolution. It is likely that the resolution will be quite simple, but you were incapable of reaching it for a number of reasons, including stereotypical thinking. This will be a good lesson for you, one that will teach you to look at the world as it is.

This will not be the most outstanding month for you. Your biggest task right now is to maintain what you have, not to multiply it. Imagine yourself in a sieged castle, awaiting for upcoming support to arrive. Going into open battle would be a serious mistake, while planning your strength to support yourself for the required time is the correct decision. Calm down, focus, and find your way out, seeing where your strengths lie.

Amara la Negra


Pussy Ban

Wants to conquer Homeland

“El Canario” Marries long-time Partner The new song of Amara la Negra (“Ay, ay, ay”) in collaboration with the rapper N-Fasis displeased both, her fans and the CNEPR, the National Commission for Public Events and Radio. “Toto” (pussy) is the first song of the controversial Música urbana, which is blamed for often obscene texts and lyrics glorifying violence and drugs, which was banned by the censors in the new year. Thus, the song (“you won the lottery when you found my pussy”) may not be played neither in radio nor on television nor on public events. “We appeal to those young people who make music, to seek good advice to take their careers to the best way. We are very sorry that this young lady has no family or friends, which could help to put her on the best way”, said J.M. Hidalgo, chairman of the CNEPR. At the same time, this prohibition also included several songs of rapper N-Fasis, such as “La yerba y el perico” (The grass and the cocaine). N-Fasis complained that his collaboration with El Mayor Clasico, “Como quiero ta”, which does not contain any bad words, was also banned. The people who don't like his music wanted to do anything to block him.

Born in the southwestern province of Baní, singer Santaye, who is produced by the former Aventura member Lenny Santos in the USA, now wants to conquer her homeland with her Bachata. This year, Santaye was nominated as the best Tropical artist for the prestigious Premios Lo Nuestro for the second time. José Alberto "El Canario", one of the old Dominican Salsa stars, married his longtime girlfriend Terely Leger in Punta Cana, with whom he has two children. Instead of wedding gifts the couple asked to donate money for the children's home La Casa Rosada, where HIV-infected children find a home and care.

Venya Carolina Greetings for the Queen

Bob Marley Concert for 70th Birthday Scorn and derision were the reactions for the often scandalizing television presenter Venya Carolina after her performance in “Divertido con Jochy” where she called Jennifer Lopez her personal friend and sent greetings to Queen Elizabeth II who would watch the program now.

On 6th of February, the first superstar of the Third World, who died on 11 th of May 1981, the Jamaican Bob Marley, would have been 70 years old. To honor his work and legacy there will be organized the concert “Sounds of Jamaica” in Puerto Rico's capital San Juan on 6th of February, attended among others by the Puerto Rican Reggae singers Millo Torres, Don Carmelo and Gomba Jahbari, the Jamaican Don Carlos or the Italian singer Alborosie.

What is this Guy singing? “Eso da pa to” by Marino Castellanos In the eighties and nineties, Marino Castellanos was a popular Bachata singer. Then he faded from the spotlight, but returned around 2011, albeit with his old style. Cynical and witty as ever his latest hit “Eso da pa to” from 2014. Estoy enamorao de una bendita morena. Estoy enamorao, ay Dios, de una bendita morena. Estoy casi loco, estoy desacatao, bebiendo por ella. Estoy casi loco, estoy desacatao, bebiendo por ella. Ya la mandé a buscar, sírvanme otra botella. Ya la mandé a buscar, ay Dios, sírvanme otra botella. Yo de aquí no me voy hasta que llegue ella. Yo de aquí no me voy hasta que llegue ella. Si la ven por allí en brazo de otro hombre. Si la ven por allí, ay Dios, en brazo de otro hombre. A mi que me importa, eso da pa to, ay, eso no se rompe. A mi que me importa, eso da pa to, ay, eso no se rompe. Eso da pa to. Eso no se rompe. Me siento débil! Mariano, hombre! Si te pegaon los cuernos, qué siga la rumba! Si te pegaon los cuernos, ay Dios, qué siga la rumba! Eso pasa igual que la caja de diente. Que a lo primero molesta pero con el tiempo uno se acostumbra. Que a lo primero molesta pero con el tiempo uno se acostumbra. Eso hay que decir como digo yo. Eso hay que decir, ay Dios, como digo yo. Eso no se rompe, eso da pa to. Eso no se rompe, eso da pa to. Eso no se rompe, eso da pa to. Eso no se rompe, eso da pa to. Marino, hombre!

I'm in love with a blessed Morena. I'm in love, my God, with a blessed Morena. I'm almost crazy, I'm spacy, I drink because of her. I'm almost crazy, I'm spacy, I drink because of her. I have sent for her, bring me another bottle. I have sent for her, my God, bring me another bottle. I don't go away from here, until she comes. I don't go away from here, until she comes. If you see her there, in the arm of another man. If you see her there, my God, in the arm of another man. I don't care, that's enough for all, ay, that doesn't break. I don't care, that's enough for all, ay, that doesn't break. That's enough for all. That doesn't break. I feel weak! Marino, man! If they cuckolded you, may the party continue! If they cuckolded you, my God, may the party continue! This is the same as with dentures. At the beginning it is annoying but with time you get used to it. At the beginning it is annoying but with time you get used to it. So you have to say, like I say. So you have to say, my God, like I say. That doesn't break, that's enough for all. That doesn't break, that's enough for all. That doesn't break, that's enough for all. That doesn't break, that's enough for all. Marino, man!

Marino Castellanos was one of the most popular Bachateros of the older generation in the eighties and nineties, to be mentioned in a row with Ramón Torres or Ramón Cordero. The demand for his kind of Bachata was fading away, when this then disreputable genre of music which was seen as music for pubs and whores, was modernized and made presentable by artists such as Antony Santos and Luis Vargas. Nevertheless, the music of Marino Castellanos never was forgotten, like “El que nada tiene nada vale” (The one who has nothing, is worth nothing), “Qué me lleve quien me trajo” (Shall the one bring me back who has brought me) or “La piscina” (The swimming pool). Once he even worked as a security guard to eke out a living. But producers remembered Marino Castellanos again from 2011. His latest hit from 2014, “Eso pa as to”, shows that they were right, because at the moment it can be heard at each and every corner.

Sales Genius

In the evening of Shrove Monday a totally drunk man staggers across the parking lot at the railway station. A passer-by noticed how he scans all car roofs. “Hey, what are you doing there?,” he calls the drunk. “I am looking for my car,” came the stammering answer. “Yes, but what are you looking for on the roofs of the cars, all of them are the same!” The carouser answers, “Nonsense, my car has a light on top!”

After the first day, the manager asks the young man, “Well, how many customers did you have today?” The young man, “One.” “What? Only one? Our sales people have an average of 20 to 30 sales a day! And how much did you sell?” Young man: “210,325 dollars and 65 cents.” Manager: “210,325 dollars and 65 cents? What did you sell?” Young man: “First, I sold a small fish hook to the man, then a medium size fish hook, then an even bigger fish hook and eventually I sold him a new fishing rod. Then I asked him where he wanted to go for fishing. He said, 'Up on the coast'. So I told him that he would need a boat. So we went to the boat department and I sold him that twin engine Seawind. He thought his Honda Civic will not be able to pull this boat, so we went to the automotive department, where he took the Pajero four-wheeler.” Manager, “Do you mean, a man came to buy a fish hook, and you sold him several fish hooks, a new fishing rod, a new boat and a new SUV?” The young man answers, “No, no, as a matter of fact the man came to buy a pack of tampons for his wife. Then I told him: 'Now that your weekend is fucked anyway, you could as well go fishing.'”

After a while, the animal starts to tremble and the wife says to her husband, “Honey, the poor thing freezes, it trembles, what should I do?” The husband answers, “Put it between your legs, there it is cozy and warm.” “Yes, that's a good idea, but what should I do about the disgusting stench?” “Just hold its nose!”

Good Advice A man goes to the doctor and tells him that he hasn't been feeling well. The doctor examines him, leaves the room and comes back with three different bottles of pills. The doctor says, “Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you get up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water.” Startled to be put on so much medicine the man stammers, “Jeez doc, exactly what's my problem?” The Doctor says, “You're not drinking enough water.”
