Mexico's peso firmed on Friday, hitting its strongest level in more than 13 months after weak U.S. housing and consumer sentiment data backed bets of a slower pace of interest rate hikes in the United States.

"Corruption is the cancer that affects everything. Law in Mexico is like a f*****g circus. Nobody respects the law here.”
In a functional democracy, you’ve got to have an expectation that the laws will be enforced, especially when a person in government violates the law.
“You combine inequality with ineffective government, and you have a very toxic situation where organized crime is an alternative for young men - but it’s also a force that very few governmental actors are willing to confront.”
Duncan Wood, security analyst with the Wilson Center.
Killings continue in Mexico's Baja California Sur. Two heads have been found in a cooler just two blocks from the tourist zone of Cabo San Lucas. The state prosecutors also said the total bodies found after several days of excavation of clandestine graves had reached 18. The bodies of five women and 13 men were found in 12 graves near the Cabo Pulmo park off a road that runs between the reserve and the resort of San Jose del Cabo.

Mexico’s president, its richest man and actor Leonardo DiCaprio signed an agreement Wednesday to try to save the critically endangered vaquita porpoise.
The agreement struck by President Enrique Pena Nieto, multibillionaire telecoms magnate Carlos Slim and DiCaprio sets the goal of ending gillnet use.
“Mexico understands its responsibility as one of the countries with greatest biodiversity,” Pena Nieto said. “That is why we have implemented an historic effort to avoid the extinction of a unique species in the world and also to protect important ecosystems.”

The Gulf of California continues to be both vibrant and productive, especially for species like the critically endangered #vaquita. The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, looks forward to continuing to work with President Peña Nieto, NGO partners, Carlos Slim and the local communities in the Gulf to reach greater progress on these important issues.

Another crook in BCS in the spotlights. Hopeful he will stay in jail. Excerpt from local opinion-website colectivopericu.net (Google translated)
"The arrest of John Moreno Rutowsky to answer to allegations of dispossession, death threats, fraud and breach of trust would not be transcendent were it not for the pseudo-activist's past as the character who, far from being a social fighter, specializes In deceiving people to make a profit such as was the case with the Punta Lobos cooperative and the artificial conflict created by him for the sole purpose of getting money (1 million pesos) from Tres Santos developers.
The criminal career of this fake advocate for social causes led him to perpetrate alleged crimes that are being officially investigated, such as blocking the federal highways, aggression and threats using, for this, the humble fishermen who believed his insane proposals to get money from whom they considered as invaders of the beaches they used to launch their boats."
As well
"The foregoing story, is just one of the alleged illegal situations that this swindler would have to answer to. There is more "dirty laundry" where he has taken entire families to ruin just for his money making mania of inventing things.
The arrogant history of the pseudo environmentalist John Moreno prompted his accuser to make a documentary that reveals the story that Rutowsky and Matijas perpetrated against Cara Singleton. Different media have spread the materials on their websites and several of them have received threats."

How much did it cost to stage that “protest”? To free a well known fishy character - John Moreno - attorney and some sort of real estate broker / adviser / agent.
The editor here - knowing PLENTY of pescaderos from +Todos Santos and Pescadero, find it hard to believe there are any fishermen who are "apollando" John Moreno, who ripped most of them off for a zillion bucks. The only thing this guy has in common with fisher men is the wording "fishy".......
And that all reported by the same newspaper that was for years recipient of a so called "bolsa negra" (ie $'s - +/- 15'000 peso bi-weekly) by Antonio Alcántar, at the time "director of communication" of the government....
(And no, the editor will not reveal and compromise his 100% trustworthy inside source of that info......)

Murder - Homicides statistics "they" (officials in charge of protecting free journalism or financial interests/tourism promoters) do not want you to see!
Shown data (source: Secretariado Ejecutivo del Sistema Nacional de Seguridad Pública) has been processed to be presented in an easy to interpret format.
Homicides statistics follow the trend reported by the INEGI (Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía).
INEGI homicide data tends to be more precise. Forensic coroners and the INEGI simply don’t have the same incentives to lower the number of homicides that happen as the police.

Adios, Adrian: earliest tropical storm in East Pacific annals dissipates. Adrian consists of a rather insignificant-looking swirl of low clouds with just a few isolated showers at 11:00 am EDT Thursday.
Adrian expected to dissipate later this morning. At 400 am CDT (0900 utc), the center of Tropical Depression Adrian was located near latitude 10.9 north, longitude 93.5 west, about 385 mi/615 km SSE of Salina Cruz Mexico
The depression is moving toward the northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h), and a turn to the west-northwest is expected during the next day or so.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 30 mph (45 km/h)
with higher gusts.
Adrian is expected to dissipate later this morning.

A growing trend of traveling has increased the number of people traveling to foreign countries each year. This growing trend has brought with it increased GDP growth due to tourism spending.
Mexico occupies the 7th spot at top 10 list with the largest tourism industries (GDP). Baja Sur is one of the popular destinations within Mexico.
Hopeful there will be MORE action taken to address still ongoing security issues and eliminate standing travel warnings as such >>>
http://bajaurl.com/US-State-Warning (see Baja California Sur paragraph)
The six countries with the largest tourism GDP are not very reliant on tourism spending - consequently from Nr. 7 on there is a certain dependency!
1. United States ($488 billion)
2. China ($224 billion)
3. Germany ($130.8 billion)
4. Japan ($106.7 billion)
5. United Kingdom ($103.7 billion)
6. France ($89.2 billion)
--
7. Mexico ($79.7 billion)
8. Italy ($76.3 billion)
9. Spain ($68.8 billion)
10. Brazil ($56.3 billion)
