Mexico Embarks upon the Anti-Hunger Program

Cultural Diplomacy in Latin America

By VLADISLAV CHERNIY, Institute for Cultural Diplomacy

“Hunger, for many, is perhaps an ignored truth. There are those who do not know about it. Others, perhaps, do not accept it and some do not even dare to mention it.” Enrique Peña Nieto, President of Mexico

World hunger refers to the second definition, aggregated to the world level. The related technical term (in this case operationalized in medicine) is either malnutrition, or, if malnutrition is taken to refer to both undernutrition and over-nutrition, undernutrition.  Both malnutrition and undernutrition refer to not having enough food. Hunger is a term which has three meanings (Oxford English Dictionary 1971):

– the uneasy or painful sensation caused by want of food; craving appetite. Also the exhausted condition caused by want of food;

– a strong desire or craving.

Castillo’s Oranges.

Adventures In Historyland

In his book “A true history of the conquest of New Spain” (Un veridad historia de la conquista de Nueva España) Conquistador Bernal Diaz de Castillo wrote that after experiencing many hardships and battles, Juan de Grijalva’s 1518 expedition to Yucatan, landed in the Tobasco region of Mexico on the 1st of May. There he tells of a very poignant little story, that I found strangely moving, possibly about how the first Oranges came to central America.

FA – The Rise of Mexico’s Self-Defense Forces

Ana Alves, Assistant Professor of Political Science, Lee University

Across Mexico, the lawlessness and carnage of the drug wars have given rise to scores of local self-defense forces aiming to defend their communities. The federal government may be tempted to disband and disarm these armed vigilantes, but until it can shape up its security sector, the local groups offer an imperfect but acceptable alternative.

Mexico vs. Panama Gold Cup Match at The Rose Bowl

Afroxander

This past Sunday was the much anticipated first set of CONCACAF Gold Cup matches between Mexico and Panama. Canada vs. Martinique was played before in a double-header but I skipped it in order to partake in all the free food at the tailgate parties.

I covered the game for Remezcla where you can see photos (including the above) and read a bit about the madness. See more HERE.

I also uploaded a bunch more photos on Flickr that were unused. Here are a few of my favorites that were cut:
