Eco-green, the new glamour

By: Sandra RiccoFinally the day has arrived where being ecological is in fashion. I say this with joy! Luxuries are in decline. The word “green" is and will be attractive to consumers. The day has come when ecology has become part of marketing. Things like furniture and billfolds are made of recycled material. They exist, people want them and they work.Slow fashion is the new option and it defies fast fashion which produces objects every season. Slow fashion suggests creating quality products that last over time and that support local artisans and indigenous communities.It has been a while since this idea come about but now it's the new tendency: "the new fad”. For some people it is a way to launch into the market or an attractive publicity tool. For others, it is a way of life or a simple whim, a new fashion.Sensitivity is needed to be successful: sensibility and strategy. This sustainable luxury is the topic of executive congresses and conferences. The fashion industry has always set the guidelines for new creations. Eco and chic are no longer contradictory terms. It is now possible to use renewable wood or solar technology with glamorous results ... for the planet.It is no longer just a hippy or Neo Zen trend. We have seen it in the latest fashion shows where leaves and vines have been transformed into haute couture. The days of big cars and private planes are numbered like the big shot who is the least green, the one who destroys and contaminates the most. Stores in New York are using five-metre windows with sun filters which keep room temperature in without having to use air conditioning. There are new fields of design which you can see in stores and in packaging. There is a redefinition of policies when it comes to production and to securing fair conditions in the workplace... whatever it takes to be ecology minded: the latest trend.The merciless killing of animals and the use of chemicals in dyes that impact the environment can no longer be hidden. Products are being created that satisfy this new type of consumer who is conscious of the crisis and of global warming.This trend not only invites you to save but it radically brings us back to the basics: the past and its traditions, uses and customs. We are slowly incorporating this ecological tendency in food; fabrics, cars and eco-sustainable, businesses.We had to wait until this crisis came about and now there are few brands that do not show an ecological conscience. They do not hesitate to visibly show it on their labels: organic cotton or natural carbon. Merit goes to the ones who have survived and who, from the beginning, have been committed to the communities and the environment. L`Occitane has created on association of recyclers who have benefitted every year from the sales of this french brand. Their legacy is to have a lifestyle that respects the environment. We must recognize though, that it is not easy to change nor is it an option for many but without a doubt it is the future of the new consumer. We must pay attention to the labels on our products and to the material to know the origin and to be sure they do not come from defenceless communities that are exploited. An example of this is the blood diamonds.The windows in London or on Madison Avenue have turned into a cavalcade of ecological clothing and pieces made from materials that respect the environment. Finally, more and more people are noticing that what they do directly affects the world even though the motive of this new ecological tendency is not purely altruistic. In this insane and complicated economy the luxury brands need a publicity stunt in order to sell.But is this sustainable trend destined to disappear like so many others? No, not according to facts, experts and natural disasters. The climate change will be ready to remind us, when necessary, that there is no turning back. Living with sustainability is not an option. It is the key to survive and recognize that what is left on the planet is a treasure that we must preserve. The most prestigious and required responsibility today is to be Eco-green.De: Sandra Ricco

Mexico, a development opportunity for the chocolate market

In Mexico, the consumption of chocolate barely exceeds 750 grams per capita annually compared to the United States, where the consumption’s average is five kilograms and in European countries it is around 10 kilograms, which represents a development opportunity for this industry. According to Mars Wrigley Confectionery, the country has become one of the most important markets in the world, and the low consumption of chocolate among Mexicans represents an opportunity to grow the category. In a statement, the company said that data from the National Association of Manufacturers of Chocolates, Candies and Similar reveal that in Mexico said market is valued at 26 billion pesos, which evidences a visible development opportunity. Chocolate, the company said, is a product that has a deep tradition in Mexican history and that due to its features has stood out for generating joy and accompanying special moments and festivities, such as Valentine’s Day.Fuente Notimex

Canada Needs More Mexico

Canada should strengthen its ties with Mexico despite the current context of uncertainty related to the North American trilateral relationship, opportunities for a more strategic and meaningful engagement continue to exist, the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Trade said in a report released today. The report, North American Neighbours: Canada and Mexico Cooperation in Uncertain Times, calls for the two countries to build on their already solid relationship, particularly as the United States signals changes in its approach toward Mexico and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). While the relationship between Canada and Mexico is positive and continues to deepen, the Committee maintains that there is room for Canada and Mexico to engage further bilaterally.

Children should be playing more games in the classroom. Here’s why

By definition, a game is simply a structured form of play that excites the senses and captivates players; all the ingredients we want students to have in our classrooms. Unlike regular teaching, a well-developed game can instinctively convey meaningful content. What’s more, a plethora of research has demonstrated how learning games in the classroom translate into meaningful knowledge acquisition, motivation to learn, and even the development of altruism. Research on the benefit of games for learning has led to an explosion in the educational gaming industry of fun and informative games.

GUSTAVO DUDAMELMy entire life has been devoted to music and art as a way of transforming societies. I raise my voice against violence. I raise my voice against any form of repression. Nothing justifies bloodshed. We must stop ignoring the just cry of the people suffocated by an intolerable crisis. Extreme confrontation and polarization cannot seize common conscience and peace, constituting borders and barriers to understanding and peaceful and democratic coexistence. Historically the Venezuelans have been a fighting people but never a violent one. For democracy to be healthy there must be true respect and understanding. Democracy cannot be built to fit the needs of a particular government or otherwise it would cease to be a democracy. The democratic exercise involves listening to the voice of the majority as the ultimate bulwark of social truth. No ideology can go beyond the common good. Politics must be exercised from conscience and in the utmost respect of the Constitution, adapting itself to a young society that, like the Venezuelan, has the right to reinvent itself through the healthy and unobjectionable democratic checks and balances. Venezuelans are desperate for their inalienable right to well-being and the satisfaction of their basic needs. The only weapons that can be given to people are the necessary tools to forge their future: books, brushes, musical instruments; in short, those that embody the highest values of the human spirit: good, truth and beauty. I urgently call on the President of the Republic and the national government to rectify and listen to the voice of the Venezuelan people. Times cannot be defined by the blood of our people. We owe our youth a hopeful world, a country where we can walk freely in dissent, in respect, in tolerance, in dialogue and in which dreams have room to build the Venezuela we all yearn for. It is time to listen to the people: Enough is enough.

Mexican equities were lower, however, with the iShares MSCI Mexico Capped exchange-traded fund (EWW) down fractionally while the iShares Latin America 40 ETF (ILF) was up 0.4%.

Investigating Central American Migration and the U.S.-Mexico Border 

This Monday, The Texas Tribune's Bordering on Insecurity series returns with an examination of the despair, poverty and violence driving tens of thousands of Central Americans to flee to the United States. These migrants, mostly from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, are pouring across the southern U.S. border even as crossings by Mexicans have declined. To explain this dramatic shift in the dynamics of the nation's border security, our reporters will take readers to El Salvador, the murder capital of the world, where organized and well-armed gangs have brought the country to its knees. We'll visit an El Salvador morgue for a stark lesson in why people are fleeing the country — and what happens to some who don't. We'll talk to a newspaper editor who faced possible criminal charges for publishing a list of areas under control by rival gangs. We"ll take you to migrant shelters in Mexico to listen to Central Americans making their way north in search of safety and asylum.

Fraud in the Auto Industry


The blatant fraud of Volkswagen’s emissions was disclosed just a few weeks ago. Now it appears that virtually the entire automobile industry is compromised. The “cozy” relationship between those designing cars and those testing them, as The New York Times put it, demands a bigger and better explanation than the desire of any one company to beat its rivals.

According to a researcher for the International Council on Clean Transportation, responsible for overseeing the testing of emissions: “There is a financial dependency between the technical services and manufacturers that at some point should be rethought to improve the confidence in the system.” But why wasn’t that recognized from the start?
