Uruguay’s president mulls a state marijuana monopoly

Uruguay’s president mulls a state marijuana monopoly | Southern Hemisphere | Scoop.it

SC: This is just insane.  For one, personal use of marijuana is not a crime in Uraguay, but it is still a crime if you pass the limit that they give?  The limit is 40 grams, but even that doesn't make the marijuana users happy.  That is just ridiculous; there are many places that have marijuana as being illegal, and some of these marijuana users still aren't happy that they aren't getting their way.  You have to be kidding me.  They should just appreciate the fact that marijuana is legal.  They should just be quiet before it bites them and becomes illegal or something.  Castilla who is a marijuana user said that more than 40 grams shouldn't be a crime.  She said that it is affecting her individual rights and they should put a limit on it.  Give me a break.  That's all I have to say.  She needs to be happy with what she has and is able to do, before she makes it worse on herself.  Personally, I hate smoking, I hate drugs, and just anything that has to do with it.  I don't mind about legalizing marijuana because police officers have other things to worry about, such as murderders, kidnappers, robbers, or even gang violence.  But the fact that Castilla still isn't content just bothers me.  Oh well I guess.  Another thing, it mentioned that Uraguay is set to legalize abortion, making it the only country in Latin America other than Cuba to do so.  I just felt for a quick second that Uraguay just wants to be the first to do everything.

Content curation: make it part of your content strategy | Freelance Marketing Blog

Content curation: make it part of your content strategy | Freelance Marketing Blog | Southern Hemisphere | Scoop.it

If you're not convinced yet, freelance Content Marketer and blogger Mike Farmer has some interesting points for you.

 

One thing I would add to his post is the importance of creating a Content Curation hub to really capture the benefits of your Content Curation efforts. Sharing links is just not going to be enough: in a world where tweets have a very short lifetime, you need to give your curated content a second chance by putting it on a curation layer where it can be discovered from search and from people with similar interests. 

 

This can be a blog, a site or a Scoop.it page but if you're going to make content curation part of your content marketing strategy, you will need that long term repository that social networks don't bring.

Lauren Sellers's curator insight, May 22, 2014 12:04 PM

This is an interesting little chart because it reveals to us which countries have the highest percentage of migrants that make up their general population. Definitely suprised me to see Qatar as the number one on the list, I would have expected the US to be at the top, but it is not even in the top 10!

Lona Pradeep Parad's curator insight, May 28, 2014 7:26 PM

This shows the net migration of immigrants. 

Adrian Bahan (MNPS)'s curator insight, September 30, 2014 4:04 PM

Remember this is based on a % of the total population, and not total #. Which countries have the most migrants per capita living there?  What spatial or development patterns do you see on this list?

In Bolivia, miners pick away at Rich Mountain, but it takes back its own toll

In Bolivia, miners pick away at Rich Mountain, but it takes back its own toll | Southern Hemisphere | Scoop.it
Bolivia’s storied mountain of silver has created great wealth, but not for those who still mine it by hand.

 

DE: Thousands of Bolivians mine this silver by hand each day, and reap little of its benefits. Miners endure grueling temperatures and grueling labor as they mine for hours and hours each day risking their lives. Rich owners of industry reap the fruits of their labor while these men mine the Swiss cheese-like mines that are in an ever growing danger of collapsing. It started almost 500 years ago with natives working as slaves, and it remains the same to this day.
