Mexicos infamous corrupt police, press and drug cartel nexus Soldiers raiding a drug gang safe house in northern Mexico found money-stuffed envelopes earmarked for various police forces and one marked for the "press." Four people were arrested and over $5 million in US and Mexican currency was seized during the raid on Monday in the industrial city of Monterrey. Soldiers, acting on an anonymous tip, also seized drugs, money counting machines, cell phones and five vehicles. Monterrey and the surrounding state of Nuevo Leon, which borders Texas, have been a focus of the federal government's crackdown on police corruption. The cash and seized items were displayed at military barracks north of the city, with dozens of white envelopes containing some of the cash arranged in rows on a table. Envelopes at the front of the rows had yellow post-it notes with the names of police precincts in Monterrey and other municipal forces in Nuevo Leon state. One was boldly labeled "press."Army officials refused to say more about what the money was intended for, declining to comment beyond the statement.

tinyurl.com Nokia Corporation on Wednesday said the company aims to tap the fast-growing rural market with various new services. It would also look at lowering the affordability barrier for mobile phones by providing micro-financing facilities. We estimate 500 million people will have the benefit of mobility by 2010 and the telecom sector would be the biggest contributor to GDP. We also believe that much of the growth will take place in the non-urban markets, where penetration is still low at 13 per cent, said Mr Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, President and CEO, Nokia Corp. He added that India is the second biggest market in terms of revenues for Nokia. The company also announced the national roll-out of Nokia Life Tools services, which would eventually cover 17 States. Targeted at the rural customer, Nokia Life Tools provides useful information on weather conditions, farm inputs and market prices. Nokia also announced that it plans to offer a micro-financing facility for its phones across 12 States, for which it is currently in talks with few institutions. This facility would be aimed largely at women in rural areas. Mr Kallasvuo further said the Chennai factory, with an investment of $250 million, is now Nokias biggest factory worldwide.Were exporting more than half of our production from of this plant to over 59 countries, he said. He added that in retail the company has around 1.9 lakh 0000 outlets across the country.He further said the company plans to look more at into local ...
The Cosummumism Paradox. How Consumerism Leads to Communism Conservatives are busy warning us of the looming danger of communism to our free market economy. According to this narrative, businesses of America are what makes this country great. Well, who can disagree with the dynamism of capitalism? But, what we have seen develop over the past decades is entitlement capitalism. More and more people expect capitalism to ensure most people with the so-called necessities of life. Even many leftists have abandoned or de-emphasized socialism in favor of capitalism, at least on condition that capitalism will provide everyoneor nearly everyonewith all the amenities of modern living. Indeed, this has been the great compromise. Especially during the Clinton-Blair 90s, the Left decided to embrace and use capitalism as the engine of social progress and egalitarianism. Globalism would drive down prices of goods and services. Things would become so cheap that everyone could afford their goodies from Walmart or whatevermart. Mass global production and innovation would make the latest gadgets available to everyone. Even in poor communities, fat lazy slobs would be able to afford cell phones, microwave ovens, flat screen tvs, and computers hooked onto the internet. Capitalism went from supply-and-demand to supply-and-entitlement. The dominant liberals in government allowed capitalists to do their thing as long as capitalists expanded production, drove down costs, and made things available ...
