    Charco del Ingenio asks the city council to dismiss Fox's request
    El Charco del Ingenio issued a statement asking the city council to dismiss Vicente Fox's request to build an ecological reserve area, 60 apartments and an amusement park

    In the statement they state “On behalf of” El Charco del Ingenio AC ”, I want to make public our rejection of the intention of Mr. Vicente Fox, representative of the Vamos México Foundation, expressed to Governor Sinhué Rodríguez and Mayor Luis Alberto Villarreal last 5 November, that 20 hectares of the Bicentennial Park be donated for the creation of an “inclusive” amusement park. "A Disneyland" (Fox dixit). His request includes the construction of 60 apartments to cover the expenses of CRISMA, a rehabilitation center that already occupies 2 hectares of the park, which were donated by the municipality to Vamos México in 2017.

    They point out Bicentennial Park was created in 2009 as a green area and today has more than 10,000 trees, offering an important environmental service to the city. Most of this park is located within the Ecological Preservation Zone El Charco del Ingenio and Surrounding Areas, effective since 2006 and recognized in the urban development programs that govern us until today. The Declaration of this protected area orders restricted land uses: ecological conservation, environmental education, scientific research and low impact recreation.

    The Woman Who Can Smell Parkinson's
    On St. Andrews beach on Scotland's east coast, you might run across a solitary woman on occasion, walking close to the water where the sand is wet and firm. The North Sea wind blows her gray hair over her ears as the woman closes her eyes and holds her nose into the wind. Her nose quivers and lifts, as though she's about to sneeze.

    The woman's name is Joy Milne. She spent 26 years working as a nurse, raised three sons and cared for her ailing husband. Now, she is widowed. She spends her time traveling and enjoys taking long walks. She is 69 years old.

    Her nose is a bit crooked perhaps, neither particularly big nor particularly small, and when she takes her glasses off, which she does to look out at the sea, you can see two dimples where they usually rest. But Milne's nose is special: She has a much better sense of smell than most people.

    ROB DUNN: Unseen Life: In Us, On Us, and All Around Us Nov 20
    Microbes get a bad rap. Sure, some of them cause diseases, and for millennia before antibiotics, had been the scourge of humanity. But most that we encounter in our daily lives are benign, or even beneficial to our health. Recent advances have enabled us to detect the genetic signatures of this unseen underworld, revealing microbial life that is far more diverse, abundant—and stranger—than previously imagined.

But most that we encounter in our daily lives are benign, or even beneficial to our health. Recent advances have enabled us to detect the genetic signatures of this unseen underworld, revealing microbial life that is far more diverse, abundant—and stranger—than previously imagined.

    ROB DUNN: Unseen Life: In Us, On Us, and All Around Us Nov 20
    Microbes get a bad rap. Sure, some of them cause diseases, and for millennia before antibiotics, had been the scourge of humanity. But most that we encounter in our daily lives are benign, or even beneficial to our health. Recent advances have enabled us to detect the genetic signatures of this unseen underworld, revealing microbial life that is far more diverse, abundant—and stranger—than previously imagined.

    Work Concluded In Puente De Baeza And Open To The Vehicle Circulation Calle José Mujica
    Once again, José Mujica Street was opened to vehicular traffic, which for more than two months remained closed, due to the restructuring work on the Baeza Bridge located on the road artery.

    This work is one of the most important of the 2018-2021 Administration, since it translates into direct benefits for both the inhabitants of the city and visitors, not only in the aesthetic impact but also because of its vehicular and historical importance.

    The work was authorized by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) throughout the construction process and intervention work always taking into account the rescue, rehabilitation and restoration of the elements in the place.

    The works included the replacement of the pavements and stonework, the structure of the slopes of the ravine, the injection of the walls to support the vault, as well as the sewing of cracks inside the bridge. Today we work on the perimeter fence of the bridge to tie it with the fence of Benito Juárez Park.

    Work Concluded In Puente De Baeza And Open To The Vehicle Circulation Calle José Mujica
    Once again, José Mujica Street was opened to vehicular traffic, which for more than two months remained closed, due to the restructuring work on the Baeza Bridge located on the road artery.

    This work is one of the most important of the 2018-2021 Administration, since it translates into direct benefits for both the inhabitants of the city and visitors, not only in the aesthetic impact but also because of its vehicular and historical importance.

    The work was authorized by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) throughout the construction process and intervention work always taking into account the rescue, rehabilitation and restoration of the elements in the place.

    The works included the replacement of the pavements and stonework, the structure of the slopes of the ravine, the injection of the walls to support the vault, as well as the sewing of cracks inside the bridge. Today we work on the perimeter fence of the bridge to tie it with the fence of Benito Juárez Park.
