Members of US Congress came for Information Migration, Human Rights and Drugs / Massive Return of Migrants / Devastating Floods

The leader of the Democratic minority in the US Congress, Nancy Pelosi, accompanied by a delegation, visited President Danilo Medina, Foreign Minister Andrés Navarro (photo) and the chairman of the Chamber of Deputies, Abel Martínez, to talk about topics that are of mutual interest. Along with nine other Democratic Congressmen the issues of the discussions were migration, human rights, the fight against drug trafficking and pregnancy of minors. The delegation has visited Cuba before and then went to Haiti. Foreign Minister Navarro gave details on the naturalization plan for the thousands Dominicans of Haitian descent who are primarily affected, and assured the Dominican Republic has put on the way one of the most comprehensive immigration reforms in the Caribbean.

Martínez demanded from the US to rethink on Haiti. People feel that there is a lot of pressure on the country, but “the Haitian problem is not exclusive for the Dominicans.” An unstable Haiti causes an imbalance here, in one of the most stable countries in the region. The international community must invest in Haiti, build a basis for development and democracy. The Dominican Republic has helped in the best possible way, but the fate of Haiti does not lie solely in the responsibility of the Dominican Republic. “We want the development of Haiti. We have provided everything in our power for it, but the Dominican Republic has to be part of the joint efforts that are being made worldwide to save Haiti.” The problems of Haiti must be resolved on Haitian territory. Since the beginning of last year, 7,593 Dominicans voluntarily returned from abroad. The bad economic situation in Spain or the persecution by the authorities in other countries in the case of illegal immigrants have encouraged them to return. The US had deprived entire families of their residency for various reasons.

Due to the heavy rains in the north and center of the republic, 20,860 people had to be evicted from their homes and found shelter in temporary accommodations. A total of 20 homes were destroyed by the impact of the heavy rains, about 4,200 homes were damaged by flooding or landslides. Two people lost their lives. The Highway of national shame, the so called Carretera “Turística” - its name can only be regarded as a mockery since years -, between Santiago and La Gran Parada close to Montellano has been damaged even more by landslides now. For years the users of this road complain about its unspeakable condition, many businesses along this “highway” therefore were forced to close. (Sources: Listín Diario, Hoy, Z101, Acento)

“Proud and satisfied” Leonel Fernández responds to Accusations / Campaign authorized by the United States?

Once it became clear that the letter to the former president Leonel Fernández was genuine, in which the convicted drug lord Quirino Ernesto Paulino Castillo demanded to repay a loan of 200 million pesos for his 2004 election campaign, Leonel Fernández responded: “It fills me with great pride and satisfaction that the transnational drug traffic uses the identity of a known sentenced drug trafficker to launch a smear campaign against me.” These attacks demonstrated the determination of his government against these sectors of the transnational crime, whose members have been extradited to the United States according to the law. He

had fulfilled his duty by the extradition of Quirino, and thus protected the Dominican society and guaranteed the safety of our families and the preservation of the Fatherland. It was strange that this campaign started a few days after polls showed that he would win against any other opposition candidate in the elections in 2016, although he has not even yet decided to run. In conclusion, he quoted Luke 9:60: “Let the dead bury their dead.” In contrast to his followers, Fernández does not make the opposition or the United States responsible for Quirino's accusations, but the international drug mafia. But he did not deny the accusations nor the alleged help of Quirino for campaigning or the support for his foundation Funglode (Global Foundation Democracy and Development). Even the hasty dismantling of the generator with a value of 200,000 dollars in the building of the former president's foundation Funglode after the drug lord claimed that it was financed by him, was not denied by neither Leonel Fernández nor the officials of Funglode.

According to Euclides Gutiérrez Félix (pic), a founding member of the ruling PLD party, it is only possible for Quirino to raise these accusations against Leonel Fernández, because he is authorized by the United States, which so supported the plan for the “fusion” of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The US did not want the PLD governing. The lawyer Carlos Balcácer who defended Quirino, stated in an interview in the program “El Sol de la Mañana” that after his extradition to the United States in 2005, he warned Quirino to talk about Fernández with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), otherwise he could “perish”.

“Time to take Responsibility” Dispute between the Attorney General and Félix Bautista / Angry Outburst in Court The prosecution accuses the senator of San Juan de la Maguana, Félix Bautista, a close confidant of former President Leonel Fernández, of the accumulation of “exorbitant riches”. He is accused of corruption, money laundering, forgery and other crimes. The hope of the senator that his case simply will be filed definitively, as usual, like those of former President Fernández and the third in the round, Víctor Díaz Rúa, so far was not fulfilled.

After the last official hearing, when Bautista in an outburst called the Attorney General “irresponsible”, the prosecuter replied that it was time to take responsibility. Bautista accuses Domínguez Brito of “abuse of power” and “defamation” of his person. A trial (juicio al fondo) is not yet appointed.

Sometimes Attorney General Francisco Dominguez Brito remained unexpectedly stubborn, and Judge Alejandro Moscoso Segarra so far rejected the proposals to close the files. In the investigations, for example, it was revealed that in a company of Bautista the chairman is a former manager of a service company in the United States, and its shareholders are a driver and a maid. The network of companies of Bautista has moved 25 billion pesos. It has four asphalt companies, of which one alone cost 33 million dollars, his radio and television stations cost eight million US dollars.

Sometimes incredible things happen. Maybe here even more than in other countries. Sometimes these things can be funny, sometimes they are annoying. So they were in the last issue in English of LA PLAYA. Due to a mistake in the printing office, the content of the magazine was printed as in the issue before. But not the entire issue. The pages eight and nine were correct. Why? Who knows … So the only thing is to say sorry to the readers and advertisers, without being able to guarantee that this will never happen again. As I wrote above: In other countries ... Many readers like LA PLAYA and eagerly look for it when it is distributed, in spite of its imperfect English. But apparently some business owners didn't notice the potential of an ad in LA PLAYA yet. And once again: In other countries … By the way: If there is a mishap as in the last issue, you also can read the new issue on the Internet at There you can see the issue as it should look like when the print is correct.

Catastrophe at Carnival in Haiti 17 Dead at Parade / New Hotel in Port-au-Prince / Jamaica decriminalizes “Ganja” The singer of the group Barikad Crew, “Fantom” is one of the victims of the disaster that led to the cancellation of the popular Haitian “Kanaval” after a high voltage cable hurt and killed some people on their Carnival float. According to his information, the accident happened, when there were lifted only two of three power cables above the street and the third was torn down and fell on the car after the Carnival float started to move again. Some of the participants were electrocuted, but most of the victims were trampled to death when a panic started, 78 others were injured in the accident. The government declared the state of mourning and promised to help the affected families. President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Evans Paul headed the state funeral. Paul promised that his government would build a “better Haiti” to make sure that such disasters will no longer happen.

In the presence of former US President Bill Clinton, the new hotel of the Marriott hotel chain was inaugurated in Haiti's capital Portau-Prince. He called the opening of the eleven-story hotel a milestone for Haiti. More than a thousand workers found work during the construction, now 200 employees will find permanent jobs, almost exclusively Haitians, also in positions of responsibility. 60 percent of the managers will be women. President Martelly stressed the importance of this hotel, which is a part of the plans of the country to return to the world map of tourism.

After a debate over three decades in Jamaica, the possession of small amounts of “ganja” (marijuana) is now permitted for medical or religious purposes. With a license for religion (Rastafarians) or for medicinal purposes, the herb can be consumed without restrictions. Without this license, an amount up to two ounces (56 grams) is no longer a crime. Who gets caught, has to pay a penalty. For the Minister of National Security, Peter Bunting, this change is “significant, because it ends the decadeslong criminalization of thousands of Jamaicans, just because they had a little ganja.”

Miss from Ecuador died in Plastic Surgery / Clinic in Santiago closed after two Deaths At the beginning of the year, the death of the most beautiful woman in the canton Durรกn in the State of Guayaquil in Ecuador in a clinic, the 19-year-old Catherine Nicole Cando (photo), made international headlines. The Miss of the canton Durรกn should do one more liposuction before another contest so that her body meets the required ideal dimensions even better. Allegedly, she was even against this operation, but the doctor urged her, according to her mother.

Now a beauty clinic was closed in Santiago de los Caballeros, the second biggest city of the Dominican Republic, by the authorities after two women died at a plastic surgery in just three days. The prosecutor said the clinic on one of the busy roads of this city in the heart of the country will remain closed until the facts are clear, which lead to the death of the two women. The same clinic was closed already in the year 2011 after a scandal when a 46-yearold woman from Puerto Plata has died after a plastic surgery.

Six Premios Lo Nuestro

First Album after 23 Years

María Díaz Assaulted at Home Ble troub

With six prizes each, Romeo Santos and Enrique Iglesias were the two big winners of the Premios Lo Nuestro 2015 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. Background of the stage was the colonial architecture of Old Havana (La Habana Vieja). The American with a Dominican mother received the awards as Artist of the Year, Contemporary Artist of the Year in the section Tropical, Male Artist of the Year in the section Tropical, Song of the Year in the section Tropical for “Propuesta indecente” (LA PLAYA 105), Album of the Year in the section Tropical for “Formula Vol. 2” and, together with Enrique Iglesias for the Cooperation of the Year in the section Tropical for the song “Loco”. At the 27th celebration of the Premios Lo Nuestro performed the greatest Latin stars such as Marc Anthony, who accompanied the Italian Laura Pausini with her theme “Se fue” - she got an award for her 20-year career - or the Cuban-born rapper Pitbull, the Mexican Thalía and the Colombian Juanes. Maná had to sing their new hit “Mi verdad” without Shakira, who recently gave birth to her second child. Moderator Christian de la Fuente called the event “the biggest festival of Latin American music.”

María Díaz, “la Reina”, the queen of Música típica, became victim of a robbery at her home in Santiago. After the robbers attacked her, she could still shoot once on them with her pistol, as she affirms. María Díaz had bruises on both eyes, the chest and her legs. The robbers managed to escape with their loot of 187,000 pesos in cash, six mobile phones and jewelry worth about one million pesos.

Jennifer Lopez Twice as nice The worst nightmare for a star came true for JLo: Her dress was not unique. Jennifer Lopez and Robert Duvall's wife, Luciana Pedraza, wore nearly identical dresses on the red carpet at the 2015 Oscars. Both women wore sparkling ball gowns with plunging V-necks and voluminous tulle. Even both had drop earrings and did not wear a necklace. The difference was the slightly darker tone of Luciana's dress and Jennifer Lopez wore a belt around her waist.

After a 23-year break, one of the legends of Salsa announced a new album. The Puerto Rican Raphy Leavitt said the pressure of the audience had become too strong. Since 2000 he is writing new songs again, but until recently he did not feel a great motivation to make them public. That has now changed. With his group La Selecta and the three former singers Sammy Marrero and Carlos and Víctor Ramírez, the 66-year-old Raphy Leavitt now started to record the songs for the new album. In 1972, Raphy Leavitt had to stay in hospital for six months when he suffered a car accident after a concert, in which the extrumpeter Luisito Masenet was killed. The song “La cuna blanca” was dedicated to Masenet and now is a Salsa classic and a popular song played at funerals. “We want to raise social awareness, to see if we can all have a common social consciousness one day. We will unite so that we can push the development of our music and culture,” said Raphy Leavitt. On 15th of March, Raphy Leavitt y La Selecta will perform in the Hiram Bithorn Stadium in Puerto Rico on the National Day of Salsa.

What is this Guy singing? “Jardín prohibido” by Alex Bueno In his Salsa from the year 1990, Alex Bueno gives a simple explanation to his partner for an escapade: That's how life is. Esta tarde vengo triste y tengo que decirte que tu mejor amiga estaba entre mis brazos. Sus ojos me llamaban pidiendo mis caricias, su cuerpo me rogaba que le diera vida. Comí del fruto prohibido, dejando el vestido colgado de nuestra inconciencia. Mi cuerpo fue gozo durante un minuto. Mi mente lloraba tu ausencia. No lo volveré hacer más, no lo volveré hacer más. Pues mi alma volaba a tu lado. Y mis ojos decían cansados, que eras tú, que eras tú, que siempre serás tú. Lo siento mucho, la vida es así. No la he inventado yo. Siempre que me miraba a los ojos y cogido por manos, yo me he dejado llevar por mi cuerpo y me he comportado como un ser humano. Lo siento mucho, la vida es así. No la he inventado yo. Sus besos no me permitieron repetir tu nombre, el suyo si. Por eso cuando la abrazaba me acordé de ti. Comí del fruto prohibido... La vida es asi, no la he inventado yo. Sus besos no me permitieron repetir tu nombre, y el suyo sí. La vida es asi, no la he inventado yo. Ella me miraba a los ojos y yo pensando en ti. La vida es asi, no la he inventado yo. Comí del fruto prohibido, por un minuto de amor, oye, tu amor. La vida es asi, no la he inventado yo. Y tu lo sabías mi amor, pero la vida es así. La vida es asi, no la he inventado yo. Ya lo ves no es que yo quiera, esas son cosas que le pasan a cualquiera. La vida es asi, no la he inventado yo. Suave, que me estás matando, que estás acabando con mi corazón, ay mi vida. La vida es asi, no la he inventado yo. No, no, no, no te lleves de nadie, llévate de mi, corazón, que yo te voy a hacer feliz. La vida es asi, no la he inventado yo. Y cuenta conmigo mi amor, espérame que voy.

This afternoon I come sad and have to tell you that your best friend was in my arms. Her eyes called me asking for my necking her body pleaded me to give her life. I ate from the forbidden fruit, leaving the dress hanging on our unconsciousness. My body was joy for a minute. My mind cried your absence. I will not do it again, I will not do it again. My soul was flying by your side. My eyes told me tired, it was you, it was you, it always will be you. I'm very sorry, but that's how life is. I did not invent it. She always looked at my eyes held by the hands, I let me take a way by my body and acted like a human being. I'm very sorry, but that's how life is. I did not invent it. Her kisses did not allow me to repeat your name, but hers. That's why when I embraced her I remembered you. I ate from the forbidden fruit … That's how life is, I didn't invent it. Her kisses did not allow me to repeat your name, but hers. That's how life is, I didn't invent it. She looked into my eyes and I was thinking of you. That's how life is, I didn't invent it. I ate from the forbidden fruit for one minute of love, listen, my love. That's how life is, I didn't invent it. You knew it, my love, but that's how life is. That's how life is, I didn't invent it. You see that it's not as I would like it, these are things that happen to anybody. That's how life is, I didn't invent it. Softly, you are killing me, you finish with my heart, ay, my life. That's how life is, I didn't invent it. No, no, no, don't listen to anybody, listen to me, heart, I will make you happy. That's how life is, I didn't invent it. And count with me, my love, wait for me, I'm coming.

Alejandro Wigberto Bueno López was born in San José de las Matas on the 6 th of September 1963. Already as a child he showed his musicality, played the guitar at the age of five and won the competition in the Festival de la Voz in 1978, , organized by the Merengue star Wilfrido Vargas, whereupon the young man called the attention of Gerardo Vera, with whom he made his first recordings. Then Alex Bueno, as he called himself as a singer, sang with Fernando Villalona on his hit album “Feliz Cumbé” and the same year he founded his first orchestra Alex Bueno y Orquesta La Liberación. Eight years later, he decided to start his solo career, in which he showed that with his voice he is able to compete in all genres, Merengue, Salsa, Bachata or romantic music. When he published his album “Bachata a su tiempo” at the peak of the Bachata in 1988, it reached the highest positions of the Latin music charts in the USA. But despite his many hits, Alex Bueno never was coveted a Music Awards, neither nationally nor internationally.

It's magic (I)


It's magic (II)

An old lady is rocking away the last of her days on her old rocking chair on her veranda, reflecting on her long life, when, all of a sudden, a fairy godmother appears in front of her and informs her that she will be granted three wishes. The old lady says, “I guess I would like to be really, really rich.” Poof - her rocking chair turns to solid gold. She smiles and says, “I wouldn't mind being a young, beautiful princess.” Poof - she turns into a beautiful young lady. “Now your third wish?” asked the fairy godmother. Just then the old woman's cat wanders in front of them. “Oh … can you change him into a handsome prince?” Poof there before her stands a young man more handsome than anyone could possibly ever imagine. She stares at him, smitten. With a smile that makes her knees weak. He comes close and whispers in her ear: “Bet you're sorry you had me neutered!”

A knight is riding on his horse through the country. Suddenly a fairy appears and says to him: „You got three wishes.“ The knight answers, „First, make my my invulnerable; second, I want to be invulnerable too; and third, I want my genitals as big as those of my horse.“ The fairy snaps her fingers and the knight rides back to his castle. The squire comes to help him from his horse. The knight says to him, „Beat my horse to death.“ The squire, „But Sir ...“ The Knight insists: „Go ahead! Kill my horse!“ The squire hits the horse hard, but this just wickers and laughs. The Knight, “Now strike me dead.” The squire, “But milord ...” The Knight, “Do not argue! Kill me!” The squire takes the sword and strikes at the knight. Without any success. After ten minutes, the squire says exhausted, “My knight, how is this possible?” The knight replies proudly, „That's nothing yet, look at this!“ He takes off his armor and lifts up his chain mail. The squire is appalled, „Oh God, Sir! I've never seen such a big pussy.“

Sudoku No. 281 (easy)

 Two women were walking through the woods when a frog called out to them and said: “Help me, ladies! I am a stockbroker who, through an evil witch's curse, has been transformed into a frog. If one of you will kiss me, I'll be returned to my former state as a stockbroker!” One woman took out her purse, grabbed the frog, and stuffed it inside her handbag. The other woman, aghast, screamed, “Didn't you hear him? If you kiss him, he'll turn into a stockbroker!” The first woman replied, “Sure, but these days a talking frog is worth more than a stockbroker!”
