Wonderful thing the Bolivian
(en) government is doing – putting natural remedies on par with synthetic / non-synthetic medicines. Hopefully, they can get something going on an export level since most medicines come from plants fruits and veggies anyway. Here’s looking forward to non-synthetic medicines which don’t come from labs with 5 zillion side-effects.
Brasil (es) still can’t catch a break from the rains … this time its mudslides resulting in 44 deaths. A tourist hotel and Rio got hit hardest on this go round.
Uruguay (en) is doing some really cool stuff with ‘dry toilets’ and eco-friendly waste / water management.
More news to come …. I’ll get around to everyone else later.
