rain?

Post by dean on Sun May 08, 2016 5:50 am

we had a 5 minute sprinkle that is all gone now of rain. Clouds were from the west moving in. Lightning to the south in san antonio.

went over the mountain yesterday, in process they are working on a 3 and 2 mile stretch, only had to go off road for a few hundred yards. From what I could see right at the top heading towards lapaz after where the first bends including where the rumble strips use to be, they really put down a thick layer of asphalt. Appears to be 3-4 inches in thickness where they have paved. Never saw them put down such a thick layer before.

When heading to lapaz saw a wide load, a old sail boat coming the other way. When I arrived back to LaVentana, it is planted as a fixture in front of the land where I pictured the grader next post down where they are grading the top of.

mosquito trap type A progress...   or lack of it.

amazing that the hatchlings  are so small.   I had to get a magnifying glass out to know what they were for sure.    I could see the flying pattern that backed it up.   They got through my screen barrier, luckily had a second containment of plastic bottle.    Over 30 caught so far., but this is not a position of accomplishment.

I have never seen such small mosquitoes.    they are able to fit through 1.5mm screen mesh.      I would have been able to see them on my window screen I believe if they enter homes, my fabric window screen has a mesh of 1.24mm.    

so next I have to make one with smaller mesh which is much more difficult.  

I was working on type B today.

8:30pm, I modified type A trap to have 1.24mm fabric screen, the baby mosys are not escaping, well about 4 so far in an hour. Thus I am able to capture the babys for one piece of the trap puzzle.

Juan Ramon's strip center is getting a facelift.    The new paint job looks great.      

M's orange plumbing store  has closed and is from what I could tell as of last week completely empty.   I suspect a new business will be taking that spot in no time.

Last month was probably the best april for wind activities ever, warm and strong. windsurfers and kiters were out yesterday. I am still waking up and having to wear a jacket. So nice here this year..

I have come up with a few new ideas and ways to try to validate them for catching mosquitos. I will post details as I get my experiments going in my mosquito section. With the new mosquito disease heading north time to give it some serious effort.

burrr cold again this morning... such a nice spring here this year. maybe because the last two were so warm but I just do not remember this nice of a spring ever.

They finally started paving one section of the road they are working on.    When I returned yesterday from lapaz one side was drivable.  when I went it was not.    It is not an easy trip over the mountain with some of  the off road sections, some washboard you really have to slow down to a walk.

having talks with Alaska

Post by dean on Tue Apr 05, 2016 10:32 pm

Here they are having talks with Alaska and others to bring international flights back to LaPaz. so says googletranslate. Note that this has a much greater degreeof happening because of the recent flight agreement with Mexico/USA/Canada that allows airlines to change their routes depending on the season. Not having to be locked into a same schedule all year round that I reported a few months back. IE alaska could fly into LaPaz 3-5 days a week in the winter and could cut it back to zero or 1 in the summer without getting government approval, which they could not get before..

http://www.bcsnoticias.mx/se-acerca-sectur-bcs-a-alaska-airlines-para-conectar-a-la-paz-con-destinos-internacionales/

La Paz, Baja California Sur (BCS). The head of the Ministry of Tourism (Tourism Ministry) of Baja California Sur, Luis Genaro Ruiz Hernandez, reported to have held talks with various local, national and international airlines to achieve connect to La Paz with destinations both in the country and abroad, including Alaska Airlines.


"We've been in talks with Alaska Airlines , with Aerocalafia with TAR, precisely to achieve set new destinations that connect La Paz, whether internationally and nationally; greater tourism promotion, which will be done in conjunction with airlines, service providers, hoteliers here lie; and certainly training, we must be prepared as citizens and providers, in order to receive tourists from wood they deserve ".

The German physicist behind the Evolo manned multicopter and the Volocopter 2-seater has just taken his first flight aboard another remarkable aircraft: a flying electric scooter. Thomas Senkel flew his Skyrider One prototype for some 46 minutes in the idyllic surroundings of the Canary Islands, marking what he believes is the first electric, road-registerable two-wheeler to take to the sky.

note this is google translate ... appears you do not want to end up in the hospital right now 90 employees sick.

Yesterday at 5:08pm ·
Friday, 11 March, the peace, b.c.s.
• The Hospital Juan Maria Salvatierra is in ‪#‎faseuno‬ after the influenza virus.
• Around 90 workers from the hospital are ‪#‎infected‬ and disabled by ‪#‎influenza‬.
The cases of influenza are going to the rise in b.c.s. compared with last year, because there is growth of 40 % reported the head of health services Elmer Tarazón.
Of the 34 confirmed cases 21 correspond to the virus an1n1, which has led to a greater number of deaths at the national level.
According to the authority the cases in the north of the state have been few, while the peace and the dots are the biggest rebound.
It was recently reported that inside the hospital Juan Maria Salvatierra areas of surgeries weren't working due to the high registered cases of influenza, which is why it was feared the contagion of sick patients.
‪#‎Elmer‬ Tarazon Director of health services stated:
"as soon as the hospital salvatierra are recorded 4 cases of boarding schools one of them confirmed, we are not in a critical stage in the attention in the salvatierra, always the tenciones phases couple are to meet the population in general".
According to reports in the hospital salvatierra have been reported around 90 for disabilities due to influenza virus, workers, this is derived from the contagion of the same patients.
Unofficially it is known that the health authorities have denied the disabilities to workers because they have been left with no staff.
In this regard tarazón Moreno I confirm that the hospital is in phase 1, but not in critical condition.
‪#‎Elmer‬ Tarazon Director of health services said:
" we went from zero operation from the hospital to a phase one, which is basically preventive phase by restricting the entry of the people that have nothing to do at the hospital for that persons who have influenza and be with the probability don't contaminate the rest of the People, but it's the phase one, taking into account that the critical phase is the phase 3 which is similar to what is being planned that could happen in the 2009 that never happened, by the way, we are in phase one not There's more that preventive measures, use of the staff of masks N95, the implementation of the alcohol gel of the tickets and restriction and request that the people who go to the hospital is the minimum essential that's going to a service nothing more ".
30 % of the population has not been vaccinated is to say that there are over 10 thousand people in chances of getting sick.

last night had some major wing that did some damage to my place. I estimate wind from the west at about 50mph at least to do the damage I sustained.

http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160304005830/en/Grupo-Aeroportuario-del-Pac%C3%ADfico-Reports-Passenger-Traffic

Los Cabos: Passenger traffic reached a new record high driven by a fully restored hotel capacity. Even though the number of seats grew by 9.5%, traffic is growing by 23.3%, resulting in a significant 9.6% improvement in the load factor for airlines.


Tijuana: The percentage growth rate for February was the highest growth rate in the last 6 years. During the month, the number of seats grew 40.5%, mainly driven by the 127 thousand seats increase by Volaris, followed by VivaAerobus with 17 thousand seats, Aeromexico with 9 thousand seats, and finally, Interjet with 2 thousand additional seats. The airport continues to position itself as a leading option for entry to Southern California, due to its competitive rates and the recent opening of the Cross-Border Xpress. The cross-border bridge registered market penetration of approximately 15.0% of Tijuana airport total passengers in February, reaching more than 63,000 users crossing the border using the bridge.

flew out of lapaz on friday and there was a beautiful large jet in LaPaz. There was no name and no number on the side so the person wanted privacy. I asked the people who board us and they told me it was Bill Gates plane. That does not mean he was here. Just his plane was. It was gone yesterday when I returned. I will post a picture of it shortly.

Fideicomiso Changes

Post by dean on Mon Jan 18, 2016 8:25 am

BPE wrote:Fideicomiso Changes: Don’t panic. It’s true that HSBC, Banamex, and Bancomer are no longer offering the Fideicomiso or bank trust necessary for foreigners to hold title to property in the restricted zone in Mexico (pretty much all of Baja). If your fideicomiso is with one of these banks, it appears that you are fine until you need to make a change such as selling or renewing if your 30/50 years are up. To-date, HSBC and Banamex are not transferring (seceding) the rights to existing trusts. If your fideicomiso is with one of these banks and you want to sell your property, you’ll need to cancel your trust (generally a Seller’s expense) and your Buyer will need to start a new one. Bancomer is also not offering new fideicomisos but they are still allowing you to secede (transfer) the rights to your existing trust to a new owner. This means less competition but it could also mean that the banks that are still offering trusts actually want that business and will provide better service.🙏 Things are in flux but right now Scotia, Interacciones, Banco de Bajio and Santander are all options. If you are with one of the banks getting out of the Fideicomiso business and are planning on buying or selling soon, feel free to contact me for more information.
