LATimes - over 4 years
"It was hard to see because of the sun, but it was amazing," Shelley Wade, 43, said Friday afternoon as the space shuttle Endeavour passed over Long Beach. "How often do you see a shuttle piggyback a plane?" Wade, who lives in Huntington Beach, was among the hundreds of people who came to the port area, including the Queen Mary dock, to catch a glimpse of the shuttle's farewell flight over California. Dozens began stationing themselves early in the morning on the historic ocean liner's sun deck, along the ship's right side. Among them were Francisco and Toni Perez of Cerritos. The couple had the day off and chose to come to the Queen Mary because of all the landmarks the shuttle would fly over, this was closest to their home. PHOTOS: Space shuttle Endeavour arrives "I'm extremely happy," Toni Perez said. "It's not packed, we'll get a good view of it and we won't have to fight traffic when we leave."

Guardian (UK) - over 4 years
Court in Palma de Mallorca tells medic to pay £800 a month for 25 years, and lump sum of £120,000, to mother of boy A Spanish doctor has been ordered to pay for the upkeep of a child after a failed abortion operation meant the boy's mother was obliged to see her pregnancy through to the end. In a unique case, a court in Palma de Mallorca ordered the unnamed doctor to pay almost €1,000 (£800) a month in maintenance for the child until he reaches his 25th birthday. "There has never been a case like this before in Spain," said Eva Munar, lawyer for the 24-year-old mother. "We don't know if it has ever happened anywhere else in the world." The boy was born in October 2010, six months after his mother had gone for an abortion at the city's Emece clinic. The operation had been performed when the mother was almost seven weeks pregnant. The doctor told her two weeks later that a scan proved she was no longer pregnant. In his sentence, Judge Francisco Pérez said the doctor had paid virtua ...

Chile Court Rejects Quinenco's Terpel Asset Bid
Fox Business News - almost 5 years
Chile's TDLC antitrust court Friday rejected holding company Quinenco SA's (QUINENCO.SN) bid to purchase Colombian fuel company Terpel's local assets. Quinenco agreed last September to buy Terpel Chile's assets for $320 million from fuel and forestry conglomerate Empresas COPEC SA (COPEC.SN), which needs to sell by mid-2012 to be in compliance with competition regulations. Copec needs to sell Terpel's Chilean assets because of its already-high participation in Chile's fuel market, but Quinenco's purchase of Royal Dutch Shell PLC's (RDSA, RDSA.LN, RDSB, RDSB.LN) local business doesn't make it a suitable buyer as it threatens free competition, according to a TDLC statement. The antitrust court said that Copec and Shell should only grow organically instead of through acquisitions. Quinenco considers appealing the TDLC ruling before Chile's Supreme Court. "We're not pleased with the TDLC decision as it deprives consumers from buying at a better rate. The antitrust risks don't exist an ...

  • 2004
    Age 44
    Even before he left office, Flores had expressed his interest in running for the office of Secretary General of the Organization of American States, a post which was won in late 2004 by Miguel Ángel Rodríguez an ex-president from Costa Rica.
    More Details Hide Details Later, Rodríguez had to resign from this post when he was indicted in his country for alleged acts of corruption during his tenure as president, a situation which called for an extraordinary election for his successor. Flores once again expressed his intentions of seeking the post, but after much campaigning, had to withdraw due to lack of support from other member states (even though he counted the United States as his chief backer). This situation could be explained because some of his policies were seen as being to closely aligned to US interests at a time when most Latin American governments were highly critical of the positions adopted by the United States. He was the first US-backed candidate not elected to this post since the establishment of the organization. At the time of his death Flores was and several other key actors in the deal are being investigated by the Salvadoran Attorney General on corruption and disobedience charges. These recommendations now face scrutiny and debate in the Legislative Assembly. Attorney General Luis Martínez was to have taken up the case the case against the late former President despite his own prior history of having worked in the previous ARENA administration of Tony Saca and having been Flores's partner in several businesses.

  • 2001
    Age 41

    More Details Hide Details Delivery of international aid was inefficient and was criticized by reporters, especially Mauricio Funes (who later became President of El Salvador) from the local channel TV12, an affiliate of the Mexican company TV Azteca. Some of Flores's opponents also contended that escalating violence and increasing poverty occurred during his term, but statistics from the World Bank show that poverty did, in fact, decrease during the Flores administration. Another occurrence was the Summit of the Americas where Flores called Fidel Castro a "dictator" and accused him of being responsible for thousands deaths which have occurred in El Salvador.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1999
    Age 39
    At the age of 37 (the youngest chief executive on the continent at that time), Flores became the third consecutive president from ARENA by winning an outright majority in the elections in March 1999, and took office on June 1, 1999.
    More Details Hide Details He served his five-year term, and was succeeded by another member of his political party, Antonio Saca, in July 2004. Flores's government was characterized by its close alignment with United States policies. El Salvador was one of the steadiest allies of the U.S. government in the region. Three undertakings during his term best exemplify Flores's commitment to close US-Salvadoran relations: First, Flores authorized the deployment of Salvadoran troops to Iraq in support of U.S. forces. Second, during his term a successful free-trade agreement was negotiated between the United States and the Central American region, with the late addition of the Dominican Republic to the roster of participating nations; this agreement was ratified recently by most of the region's countries as well as the U.S. Congress. Finally, Flores was the architect of the Salvadoran economy's migration from its historical currency, the colón, to the U.S. dollar.
