The Buffadora Road at South Beach: Hi All, this is Alana and Brett Hatton, and we are the new stewards of a beautiful piece of land down on South beach.

You've probably seen the geodesic domes popping up, that's us! We are excited to be putting down roots in this community. There is one change happening this week, that we want you all to be aware of. The road that goes to the Buffadora and Hike & Bike trail now, cuts through our property. This is not an actual legal road and does not exist on any surveys. It is our desire to keep the access open for everyone for as long possible. However, it is inevitable that it will be closed as more development occurs along South Beach. As of this week, we will be redirecting traffic through the arroyo. You will see a gate up where the road used to go, please drive to the left and down into the arroyo. Then turn right and you will be able to rejoin the Buff road in 150 meters. When the arroyo is full, we will open the gates so traffic can get to the Buff, but PLEASE move slowly. We have little children, dogs and friends staying on the land, and it's really dangerous with high speed traffic passing through. Please email us if you have any questions, and thanks in advance for your cooperation.

movies in LaVentana...

Post by dean on Sat Dec 06, 2014 12:07 pm

http://sandandseahomes.com/gringoflicks/


Welcome to Gringo Flicks - six terabytes of movies, TV shows and documentaries in computer file formats. I've been copying movies for people for a few years now but it's time to ask for donations to provide this service. It's a time consuming process so your donation will be greatly appreciated!

How Gringo Flicks works
* Click List of Titles on the menu above
* Enter your Contact info
* Make your selections
* Click Send (your selections are sent to me in an email)
* Bring me your external storage drive
* I contact you when I've finished copying your selections.
Memory:
Please try to avoid bringing USB flash memory, it takes 10 times as long to copy to! See the Hardware link for external drive suggestions.
Space:
On average the movies are about 2 gig each. You'll need a lot more space for an entire series like Downton Abbey or Game of Thrones and something like the History Channels' 'The Universe' series, could be 200 gig.
Time:
Copying 200 movies (roughly half a terabyte) takes about 10 hrs, plus the time to scan your drive for gremlins. Please remember this when considering your donation.

from LPG political protests

Post by dean on Fri Sep 12, 2014 12:43 pm

 
 
Because of a legacy of US intervention  in Mexican affairs, Mexico enacted
the legislation which David Crow describes:  "The question of foreign
nationals' involvement in domestic politics is thorny  in any country. During my
stay in Mexico, friends would jokingly threaten to  apply the dread
constitutional Article 33 against me. That article forbids  foreigners from getting
mixed up (inmiscuirse) in Mexican politics on pain of  expulsion from the
country. Often forgotten by those who brandish Article 33  (both jokingly and
seriously) is that the same article guarantees foreigners all  the same
rights that attach to Mexican citizens--including freedom of  expression. Thus,
some Mexican jurists interpret Article 33's prohibition on  political
activity strictly as applicable only to illegal voting or to party  proselytism.
All other political involvement, according to this interpretation,  would be
legal. 
Article 33 was invoked several years ago  against a group of foreigners,
mostly Italians, who entered the country to  observe human rights in Chiapas.
The Italians marshalled the doctrine of  "universal jurisdiction",
claiming--correctly, I believe--that human rights were  within the competence of the
international community. The pleas fell on deaf  governmental ears, but many
domestic human rights groups welcomed the  international presence as
necessary to exert pressure on the Mexican government.  After all, argued the
human rights groups, it makes little sense for the  government to police itself
on its own alleged violations. They also pointed out  that South American
dictatorships rejected international intervention precisely  on the grounds
that abuses, no matter how atrocious, were internal affairs. 
But there are a host of other affairs on  which involvement of foreigners
in politics seems warranted. For instance, when  the National University of
Mexico (UNAM) decided to raise tuition rates, this  decision affected
non-nationals as well as Mexicans. Thus, some foreigners  became involved in the
protests. (My own involvement was limited to attending an  organizational
meeting of graduate students; I subsequently became disillusioned  with the
anti-democratic tactics of the "ultra" wing of the protesters.) Another  example
is involvement in neighborhood associations that lobby the city for 
services. 
Clearly, international business concerns  are very ably
represented--oftentimes by domestic lobbyists and PR firms--in  national legislatures and the
public arena generally. To distinguish political  protest somehow from this
sort of legislative lobbying would rest on the  thinnest of logical bases:
both involve free speech rights guaranteed by  international conventions and
most national constitutions. Legally, it is  unclear to what extent national
constitutions protect non-citizens; ethically,  it is unconscionable to deny
someone basic rights merely because he or she is  not a citizen. In any
event, non-citizens' liberties do fall under the auspices  of international
agreements. I should add, however, that rioting is obviously  beyond the pale
of any legal protection".

Looking To Rent Your Home Beware

Post by dean on Mon Sep 01, 2014 9:44 pm

BWO


Property Owners Looking To Rent Your Home Beware! - I'm a longtime Baja resident, that leased my property longterm to a American family over 1 year ago. There's a new trend in southern Baja....Deadbeat Gringos! Seems word has gotten out to those who wish to scam homeowners into living for free on your property without being able to get them removed for up to 2 years. That's right, rent free. We are in legal process to get these deadbeat lowlifes off our property [identifying content deleted]. Before renting to anyone make sure you check with the Lapaz municipal court for prior demandas. We didn't and it would've saved us! They have a history of this locally. These deadbeat Gringos portray themselves as wonderful law abiding [identifying content deleted]! Beware! [identifying content deleted]. Contact me if you've had the same kind of issue. These people need to be in prison and deported! ☞ Jordon Cameron, [email=two40jordi@hotrmail.com?Subject=RE:%20Your%20Ad%20In%20The%20Baja%20Western%20Onion]two40jordi@hotrmail.com[/email], Todos Santos

Editor's Note - There are serious anti-defamation laws in Mexico, and specifically in Baja California Sur. This is a reminder that, as a matter of policy, the Baja Western Onion will not be a party to articles that accuse anyone by name of a wrongdoing or crime, whether rightly or wrongly, and we will delete any information that might identify someone accused of a wrongdoing or crime.



The Baja Western Onion and our readers can't know all the facts in a dispute, and can't be expected to sit as judge and jury to determine guilt or innocence. The police and the courts are the proper place to resolve these kinds of disputes. -

Worlds largest swimming pool

Post by dean on Thu Aug 21, 2014 1:03 pm

a concept for making LaPaz  a summer destination for Mainland Mexico and a Silicon valley of Mexico.   The world longest swimming pool should be in LaPaz....



Right now there is no reason to come to LaPaz from the mainland for a vacation in the summer other than safety from serious crime.    The beaches just are not like in the heart of things like south beach USA.   this is because the water is really not swimmable being brackish and the hazards of stingrays jelly fish.  So hotels are not used in LaPaz in the summer.     

What  a resort did in chile because of the critters in the water is they made a faux pool.   Even though they were beachfront no one wanted to go in the ocean.    They used the oceans water and made a pool  a safe retreat.   also making it the worlds largest swimming pool.   Recently in Japan they announced putting in a swimming pool down the middle of the streets sky scrapers in a city a very LONG lap pool.  

What I believe LaPaz could do very economically is put in the longest swimming pool on the malecon.    Put in a levy about 50-100 yards out because it is so shallow.    Place it parallel to the road all the way out to cromwell slides.  Because the water is so shallow it is lower cost to build this levy.    Make the levy wide enough to have parking on both side and a one way street.   This would solve the parking issues with downtown LaPaz.   And the traffic this would be one direction of car flow and the existing malacon would be the the opposite direction increasing safety for pedestrians crossing.   

Next at cromwell during high tide they allow water to flow into the pool so the water entering is always clean sea water, and it goes through a filtration system that prevents the sting rays and man-of-wars and other fish from entering.     The natural gravity could be all that is needed to do this and or draining the water from tubes at the bottom of the sea with screens a bit further out may accomplish this. at the opposite side during low tide excess water can be allowed to exit the pool area to keep the water always clean.    

What this can do is make the downtown a real beach community like many other cities in the world.   And make a great way to exercise, imagine having a one way swim of a few miles unobstructed.   In the summer it is hard to get exercise in LaPaz because of the heat, so at night you see large numbers of people bicycling and walking on the malecon, now 24 hours a day they can go for a several miles swim with what is considered one of the most useful exercises there are.    This I believe could induct high tech companies to locate in this region for all the outdoor activities it has, this solves one of the biggest ones is summer to hot to do things while the sun is out.    and for Mexican from the mainland to bring their family for a safe vacation in the summer would be ideal.    

Here are my pics to do this.    Again very reasonable cost to do this because it is so shallow.

    

     
also note this gives LaPaz another layer of protection in case of a hurricane.   on this levy, their would be a sidewalk, a bicycle lane, picnic areas, rinse off facilities after swimming and much more.   there would be walkway bridges to shortcut across as well as small islands for enjoyment.


Here are the other project the one in Chile which is the worlds largest right now and expensive to maintain because they do not use the tides.   





Here is the one to open in Japan in 2015

Re: heard this yesterday

Post by dean on Sun Aug 17, 2014 6:38 am

.  2 60" tv's, ice cold a/c and great food.  like a 50's diner with root beer floats, milkshakes, banana splits, burgers, great fries, onion rings etc.  the kobe beef come from greg normans ranch in australia.  a lot of the food is imported from USA.  their prime rib comes from nevada.
 
alessandro, the chef has been there since palermos opened and is a wonderful chef and person.  he'll pretty make you anything you want if you ask.  jimmy madden, the new owner/operator is a hands on guy from vegas.  ran some large scale operations there and knows his stuff.  you can order off the WTF menu in palermo's too.  every time my wife and i leave there, we always say, "why go anywhere else"  everyone thinks palermo's is expensive, but for the quality and ambiance i thinks it's quite reasonable.  they have excellent wine by the glass and the "pour" is double most restaurants.  1 glass instead of 2 keeps the bill down.  
 
lastly they have valet parking and know when you're ready to leave, so your cars waiting with the a/c cranking.  small tip and you're on your way!!  WTF is the old sports bar that was connected to palermos, on the malicon.  the bar's still there but now it's like a 50's diner.  has a really nice waterfall inside.  alesandro is the chef for both, you enter through a side door beside the AeroMexico office.

I finally tried WTF, and everyone's comments were spot on! My black and blue burger was heaven, and I loved the bread it was served on. That and the balsamic sauce made the excellent burger really special. I didn't expect to like sweet potato fries, but they, too, were delicious. Service was prompt and friendly, and the food arrived quickly. My ONLY complaint is that the restaurant is too cold, at least for a full-time paceña in a sundress. I had missed Jimmy's warning to bring a jacket and hope to remember next time. WTF is on the Malecón between Hidalgo and Morelos, just before Aeromexico. Open daily starting at 1 pm.

Thanks to local volunteers and donors, our Los Barriles WILDCOAST chapter is pleased to announce that we now have 12 dog poop bag stations installed at beach locations stretching from 3 miles north of town to La Ribera. We presently have five stations ready for "adoption". For more information on how you can help please contact: bajabeachadvocate@icloud.com  
Our mission is to create awareness of the value of our beaches, and to encourage conservation and public stewardship of this important natural treasure.
(Does this mean there's almost no excuse for leaving your dog's poop on the beach?  )

Spa Verde

Post by dean on Wed Sep 12, 2012 8:41 pm

Spa Verde will be opening its doors again this October! I am coming back with all new skin care products! For October and November, locals will receive a 25% discount on facials, body wraps, and Reiki treatments. In an effort to clear out my inventory to make room for the new products, every facial client will leave with a complimentary gift from an all natural, highly rated skin care line. None of these products are expired, nor have they lost any quality, they are simply taking up space. In addition, we offer manicures, pedicures, massages, waxing treatments, hair coloring and hair cuts. Stop by the Casa Verde compound this October to make an appointment, call 114-0214, or email alia@laventanaspa.com. I look forward to the new season and seeing new and old clients alike.

I also wanted to make an additional note about my Reiki treatments. It is a proven treatment for mental, emotional and physical ailments. It brings a general feeling of well-being. Because I have received my Reiki master certification, I can teach Reiki I and II to anyone who is interested. I am a member of the International Center for Reiki Training. Contact me by email and I can bring down the necessary literature.

Plans Under Way for Innovative Bus Rapid Transit System in O

Plans Under Way for Innovative Bus Rapid Transit System in Otay Mesa

http://www.otaymesa.org/uncategorized/plans-under-way-for-innovative-bus-rapid-transit-system-in-the-south-bay

Plans Under Way for Innovative Bus Rapid Transit System in Otay Mesa

A modern regional transit system that will provide an alternative to personal cars will soon come online in the eastern part of the South Bay, providing residents with rapid and reliable access to work and activity centers in a region of San Diego County currently underserved by public transportation.

The South Bay Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system will provide high-frequency transit service that links the Otay Mesa border crossing to downtown San Diego via eastern Chula Vista. It will serve major activity and employment centers in San Diego and the South Bay and provide direct access to destinations such as the Otay Ranch Town Center.

INFORMATION

El grupo desarrollador inmobiliario repersentado por el Arq. Jorge Calderón Trueba, denominado "Tierra Café", han formalizado una alianza con el ejido "El Sargento y su Anexo La Ventana" mediante un fideicomiso el cual se firmará el próximo 2o de julio del año en curso, fungiendo como testigo El Procurador Agrario Rocendo González Patiño.
El presidente del Comiariado Ejidal Joaquín E. León Avilés, fué invitado a participar en una conferencia de prensa en la cd. de México en donde se detallaron los avances del programa FIPP dentro del cual se enmarca esta prometedora alianza entre ejidatarios e inversionistas.
también acudieron dos jóvenes profesionistas del ejido a ser testigos de los nuevos tiempos donde se pretende que al fin tengamos un desarrollo sustentable. Adelaida cota y Adrían Avilés estuvieron presentes en mencionado acto.
Necesitamos crear confianza en nuestra comunidad, ya que a la fecha, ningún beneficio hemos obtenido, a pesar de que un gran número de Hectáreas ya se han negociado.
La verdad, que únicamente hemos sido objeto de burla de quienes pretenden "desarrollar" estta zona y se han convertido en Especuladores.
Hoy queremos tener la confianza en quienes nos representan y que buscan beneficios a nivel comunidad.

Post by dean on Wed Jul 06, 2011 4:49 pm

This is a cut and paste from the Netflix blog.

Netflix Is Coming to Latin America

Hi, Jessie Becker, VP of Marketing here. We're excited to share with you the news that later this year, Netflix will expand to 43 countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, offering unlimited TV shows and movies streaming instantly over the Internet to TVs and computers for one low monthly subscription price.

Netflix members in the U.S. and Canada have really taken to watching instantly and we feel great about being able to offer the same combination of convenience, choice and value to people in Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

Members in the region will be able to access Netflix.com in Spanish, Portuguese or English, depending on their preference, and will be able to enjoy entertainment on their TVs via a range of consumer electronics devices capable of streaming from Netflix, as well as on PCs, Macs and mobile devices.

We'll keep you posted on the dates when we plan to expand in the region and hope you'll spread the word that Netflix will soon be accessible throughout the Americas! Meantime, if you'd like to sign up for the Latin America service, go to www.netflix.com and leave your info; we'll send an email reminder when the service launches.

electric rates...

Post by dean on Tue Jun 28, 2011 8:24 pm

I have finally deciphered the way CFE does the electric bills. I saw a friends bill in LaPaz and realized something was just not the same as ours. Here is how it is done. http://www.la-ventana.info/t321-cfe-electric-rates

Now, this negatively affects us in LaVentana in the two transition bills from summer to winter (high) rates.. It is a bit complicated in the accounting principle, but let me explain in essence we lose our summer 400kwh threshold in the two transition times (spring fall) because they do not read our meters every month. In LaPaz they read the meters every month and still get a 2 month billing cycle so it does not affect them. Ok, it gets more complicated , though the threshold are these amounts it shifts the pricing once you pass it to another scale. Sp we lose because say in april when it is a high rate above the 200kwh threshold after passing it it then goes to the max rate of 25cents/kwh for everything past 175 KWh so if you used 600 kwh in May when it is 400 threshold but it does not jump to the max rate of 25cents but averaged this out the way they do, they take total used say 200 plus 600 equals 800 total divided by 60 days is 13kwh a day. Then they on our bills take the 13 kwh and times it by the days in that period 30 for april and may. And so in april though you only used 200kwh they charge you for 400kwh of which 225 of it is charged at the highest rate even though you used it in May when it was hotter. So you could end up with a bill that is about $40.00 dolars or $440.00pesos more than what should be charged. This occurs two times a year.

So this one is hard enough to understand in English how about trying to explain this in another language to get the locals to know they need to get the elected official to talk to CFE? Any ideas? All we need is CFE to do is shift our billing period over one month so the high rates billing periods are in sync. Or a reading every month or just those two months. Or let us report our reading (hahahah) they also may be shifting a few more days int this also, the last bull had 33 days averaged for the higher rate and 26 were in the lower period. This is another area they may be adding a few more dollars at the high rate season that would disappear with being in the correct billing reading. dean

Post by dean on Fri Jun 24, 2011 9:45 pm



http://www.yucatanexpatriateservices.com/resident-services/new-immigration-law-may-2011.html#comment-4009

Permanent residents. these are foreigners who are allowed to stay in the country indefinitely, with permission to work in exchange for remuneration in Mexico.

The condition of permanent resident may be granted to the expatriates that are in any of the following circumstances:

For reasons of political asylum, the recognition of refugee status and subsidiary protection or for the determination of statelessness, subject to compliance with the requirements of the Law
For the right to preserve the family union
Retirees or pensioners that receive an income for services rendered abroad from a foreign government or international agency or private company, that allows them to live in the country
As per decision of the Immigration Institute, regarding the Points System
Because they have had temporary residence for 4 years

Foreigners who are granted Permanent Resident status will be able to obtain a permit to work in exchange for remuneration in Mexico and the right to enter and leave the country as many times as desired. They will also be able to bring their personal property into Mexico in the manner and terms that apply under the applicable Law.

decoding CFE bill

Post by dean on Fri Jun 24, 2011 12:41 pm

Decoding the bill 101 for Tarifa 1D hilos 2 winter vs summer may-october is summer rates.

OK I think I figured out the discrepancy, I think they read the meters in LaPaz once a month and here once every 2 months. So they just do a straight line averages for LaVentana divide by the total days. Where in LaPaz they use actual monthly reading which is far better.

So the long and short for 1D if you use less than 200 KWhs in the winter per month you are at a lowest scale. And in the summer if you use less than 400 KWhs in a month you are also at the lowest scale. See the scales below for 2.1.1 to know your rates.

If you go over that you hit the basic and intermediate in the summer you go to 2.2.2 if you have 600 KWhs per month before you hop to the top tier.
If you go over 200 in the winter you go to 2.2.2 and everything over 175 KWhs is the maximum rate.

http://www.cfe.gob.mx/casa/ConocerTarifa/Paginas/Conocetutarifa.aspx
Here is the winter rate chart….
2.2.1 Cargos por energía consumida, para consumos hasta 200 (doscientos) kilowatts-hora

Consumo básico $ 0.717 por cada uno de los primeros 75 (setenta y cinco) kilowatts-hora.
Consumo intermedio $ 0.864 por cada kilowatt-hora adicional a los anteriores.


2.2.2 Cargos por energía consumida, para consumos mayores a 200 (doscientos) kilowatts-hora

Consumo básico $ 0.717 por cada uno de los primeros 75 (setenta y cinco) kilowatts-hora.
Consumo intermedio $ 1.197 por cada uno de los siguientes 100 (cien) kilowatts-hora.
Consumo excedente $ 2.529 por cada kilowatt-hora adicional a los anteriores.

Here is the summer rate chart….
2.1.1 Cargos por energía consumida, para consumos hasta 400 (cuatrocientos) kilowatts-hora

Consumo básico $ 0.639 por cada uno de los primeros 175 (ciento setenta y cinco) kilowatts-hora.
Consumo intermedio $ 0.740 por cada kilowatt-hora adicional a los anteriores.


2.1.2 Cargos por energía consumida, para consumos mayores a 400 (cuatrocientos) kilowatts-hora

Consumo básico $ 0.639 por cada uno de los primeros 175 (ciento setenta y cinco) kilowatts-hora.
Consumo intermedio $ 0.959 por cada uno de los siguientes 425 (cuatrocientos veinticinco) kilowatts-hora.
Consumo excedente $ 2.537 por cada kilowatt-hora adicional a los anteriores.

here is the link to join Eugene's bajalovers broadcast email for emergencies. This was used since 2003 until Roberta started her ventana view. I suggest we use Vv fas we do and emergencies we go to this one. this one is sent instantanious, so if Roberta is in LaPaz or enjoying the evening it still goes out. but if people begin using it for other than critical it may lose its ability to be an emergency broadcast system.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/bajalovers/join


this can be used for emergencies in our area. ie for emergenciies like someone hurt real bad and blood is urgently needed. report suspiciaous activity vehicles so people can be on the look out,. weather warnings for those who do not get noaa updates or pay attention to them for hurricanes.

NOAA Predicts Below Normal 2011 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season - Although the 2011 Hurricane season officially started on May 15, things are still pretty quiet on the Eastern Front. The 2011 NOAA Outlook, issued 19 May 2011, calls for a 5 percent probability of an above normal season, a 25 percent probability of a near normal season and a 70 percent probability of a below normal season:
Climate patterns similar to those expected this year have historically produced a wide range of activity. Allowing for uncertainties, NOAA estimates a 70% chance of occurrence for each of the following ranges of activity this season:
• 9-15 Named Storms
• 5-8 Hurricanes
• 1-3 Major Hurricanes
The seasonal activity is expected to fall within these ranges in 7 out of 10 seasons with similar climate conditions and uncertainties to those expected this year. They do not represent the total possible ranges of activity seen in past similar years. The 1981-2010 averages for the eastern Pacific hurricane season are 15-16 named storms, 8-9 hurricanes, and 4 major hurricanes.

December 14, 2010 By A.Mieryteran Leave a Comment

A new port of entry is being developed in Otay Mesa just a couple of miles east of the existing Otay Mesa Port of Entry. This project also includes a new highway connection -State Route 11-which will connect to State Route-905. The new port will be managed by a toll system and will include expedited services in both the commercial and passenger lanes. This innovative project supported by the entire region should be operational by 2015.

US sends unarmed drones to Mexico

Post by dean on Wed Mar 16, 2011 8:07 am

Good news…The US is now assisting Mexico with drones… in the battles against the cartels we now have the US using its drones. As we know last year they made us register cell phones with passports and the Mexicans have to register their phones also. I believe this to be a method of choking the communications of the drug cartels. After all, how does a organization co-ordinate their activities and information. Columbia who use to be one of the murder capitals by drug cartels was very effective at stopping the large drug violence with this strategy, Columbia’s murder rate is now much lower than Mexico’s. Below is a link to the article about the drones.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-12756789

US unarmed drones track drug gangs in Mexico
Mexico's northern border areas have seen much of the violence that has left more than 34,000 dead since late 2006.

The New York Times reports that the Obama administration began sending high-altitude, unarmed drones over Mexican territory in February, aiming to collect information to turn over to Mexican law enforcement agencies.

The paper quotes both American and Mexican officials as saying that Mexico had asked the US to use its drones to track suspects' movements.

Unnamed US officials said drones had gathered intelligence that led to the arrest in Mexico of several suspects in connection with the murder of a US immigration agent, Jaime Zapata.

Expansion begins at largest U.S.-Mexico border crossing

Post by dean on Mon Mar 07, 2011 8:09 am

they will be expanding San Ysidro

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110225/us_nm/us_usa_mexico_border_2
By Marty Graham Marty Graham – Thu Feb 24, 8:24 pm ET

SAN YSIDRO, California (Reuters) – A $600 million expansion that would more than double capacity at the world's busiest border crossing broke ground south of San Diego on Thursday, aiming to boost security and cut lengthy delays at the California-Mexico border.
.....
The first stage of the overhaul will boost the number of vehicle inspection booths to 46 from the current 24, including a dedicated bus lane and additional inspection facilities at a cost of $292 million.

Second and third phases aim to add pedestrian and southbound inspection facilities and 17 additional northbound inspection booths by early 2016, although more than $300 million needed to complete the project has yet to be authorized by the U.S. government.
