El Chapo Didn’t Want Witnesses At His Trial

The convicted drug lord known as El Chapo said on Thursday that he was “outraged” his 2019 trial had included witnesses. He also revealed that he was demanding a new trial without them.

Speaking from ADX Florence, a maximum-security facility in Colorado, the former drug kingpin complained that his trial would have resulted in a speedy acquittal had it not been for the irritating presence of witnesses, reports The New Yorker.

Reports are coming in that Comandante Daniel Ortega, Presidente of Nicaragua and leader of the Sandinista National Liberation Front (Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional, FSLN), has fled to Cuba.

Fearing the pending overthrow of his government and possible to get away from his wife, who is also the country’s’ vice-president and the real power behind the power couple, Presidente Daniel decided to take refuge in a country that has always welcome him, where he has friends in the highest of places.

In Cuba, Presidente Daniel was personally welcomed by his long time friend and comrade, Raul Castro.

Presidente Daniel was one of Fidel Castro’s great friends. And of Castro’s brother, Raul.

Presidente Daniel, in the 1970s, received training in guerrilla warfare from Fidel Castro’s Marxist-Leninist government, while plotting the Nicaraguan revolution that resulted in the overthrow and exile of his predecessor.

Sources close to the Vatican Enquirer confirmed that the Nicaraguan leader traveled alone.

Arriving in a commercial flight of the low-cost airline, Volaris, Presidente Daniel was met at Havana’s international airport by non-other, now private citizen and friend, Raul Castro.

The two were said to have ridden together from the airport in a late model car to a posh Havana neighbourhood where cameras are prohibited from taking pictures and cars from stopping or driving at low speeds.

The official government letter is said to have had a hidden message for Raul by President Daniel, detailing his plans to flee to the friend island nation

The source reports that Presidente Daniel used the letter to congratulate  Cuba’s new president, Miguel Díaz-Canel,with a hidden a message to friend Raul of his pending arrival to the island.

Tesla’s Unplanned Launch of Driverless Car in Latin America Has Many Worried

Roberto Rodriguez is a worried man. Never in the past decade has he driven his car without abusing fellow drivers or getting into a scuffle with motorcyclists or pedestrians. All this because of the traffic condition in his city.

Rodriguez has written to Elon Musk, the owner of Tesla, asking if the driverless car will provide him any help in the fight on the roads or will the fight be all by himself as has been the case up to now.

Elon Musk is a busy man, but he will have to address this as soon as possible if a launch in Latin America is to be successful.

There is news coming in that a top-level meeting was called to address Shwetank’s concern and seems like Shwetank has really pushed forward India’s concern in a very effective way.

Women drivers will also be affected by the driverless car

The concern of Rodriguez is the promise made by Musk that a completely automated Tesla will be available by the end of 2018. And Musk delivers on what he promises.

Though no announcement has been made for a Latin America launch, Rodriguez and others are worried that the new type of car soon to be on the roads will alter their driving habits.

“Venting in traffic is like therapy to me. When I get home I am refreshed, got it all out of my system, you know the stress of work, the girlfriend … I am like a new man when I get home to my wife and kids,” said Rodriguez.

In fact, a recent study by the University of Argentina in Buenos Aires showed that road rage has helped reduce domestic violence. Researched Juanes Alpizar said that the numbers (of domestic violence reports) are way down, more than imagined.

Could a driverless car contribute to rising domestic violence? Alpizar answered honestly that he doesn’t know the answer to that. But if Rodriguez’s experience is any indication, it has many worried. Worried that the driverless car will not allow drivers to distress themselves and will take it out on their loved ones once they get home.
