50th ANNIVERSARY OF THE DEATH OF FALSE CIGARETTE ADVERTISING by Big Tobacco.  Millions of lives have been probably been saved!

From: Dental Tourism News Co -

From: Dental Tourism News Co library 

In the first half of the 20th century cigarette companies used images of medical professionals to hype false claims of the health benefits of smoking.

Stanford University notes:

‘It’s no secret that smoking is bad for your health. But only 50 years ago this week, the Royal College of Physicians in the U.K. issued the first major report warning of smoking’s dangers. Two years after the British report, the U.S. Surgeon General issued its own report on health risks from smoking. It led to Congress requiring warning labels on tobacco products the following year, and eventually, imposing tighter restrictions on cigarette advertising.”

Dr. Raphael Ramirez, Board Certified Dentist in Cabo San Lucas says: ‘Teeth can become discolored or damaged from not only poor hygiene but also from coffee, tea, sugary soft drinks, sports drinks, soy sauce and smoking.’

You can get your beautiful smile back by getting a whitening or cosmetic dental makeover by a Board Certified Dentist in Asia or Mexico for half the cost in the USA, Canada or UK.  Visit: The Board Certified Mexico Dentist Association website.

For example: Many patients visit a Cabo dentist for expensive dentistry such as a root canal,  crown or dental implant in Mexico.

Unfortunately many end up in a general dentist’s chair who never attended dental specialist  college and is completely uncertified to do the work. Worse, the general dentist charges the  same and sometimes even more than a Board Certified Cabo dentist who is a specialist.

Embattled Philippine President Aquino Faces Parade of Horribles

MANILA:  Philippine President Benigno Aquino –

Nov. 29, 2013

Embattled Philippine President Aquino Faces Parade of Horribles

Phil Pres. Aquino -

By David de Los Angeles for Free News Release.Us

Corruption, invasion, earthquake and a super typhoon test Presidential willpower.

For the past 2 years the people of the Philippines have been obsessed with the arrest of former President Gloria Arroyo who along with the First Husband was charged with plunder by Aquino administration anti-corruption investigators.
This scandal of immense national significance was followed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court resigning under fire under similar charges.
Now – a score of existing and former members of the House and Senate find themselves facing charges in another scandal known as Pork Barrel. All of which out-ranked the daytime soap operas as everyone from taxi drivers to housewives and business people tuned in to see which politician’s dirty dancing would featured on prime-time TV next.
Next – even as the President was sparring with China over sovereignty of offshore territories Aquino was finalizing negotiations to end a 40-year conflict with Muslim separatists.  The MNLF – a minority participant in the negotiations (Muslim Communist revolutionaries) backed out and invaded towns in Mindanao the country’s 3rd largest island.

aquino 3It was sort of a Mouse That Roared movie in 3-D but with real bullets and without the popcorn. The insurgents were only 200 strong but they made quite a nuisance of themselves.

 President Aquino’s boots were on the ground often during the conflict as he  conferred with military staff, troops and a frightened local populace. After  3 weeks of fighting the insurrection was history. During the conflict, many  1,000’s of locals were temporarily relocated, protected and provided for by  the government.
Then – with the smoke from the battle still rising from the ashes of homes and businesses caught up in the turmoil, a 7.2 earthquake devastated nearby Cebu Island and surrounding provinces. National architectural treasures over 300 years old along with many newer buildings, 1,000’s of houses and infrastructure were destroyed.
aquino 2
Finally – Relief for those areas devastated by the earthquake was barely underway when typhoon Yolanda hit displacing over 4 million people and directly affecting over 10 million. These disasters overlapped boundaries in many areas so some communities faced Armageddon more than once in a matter of weeks.
Let me put it all in perspective from an American’s point-of-view. Imagine if in the USA – everyplace west of the Rockies was made uninhabitable virtually overnight. Farms, churches, schools, businesses, government buildings, banks, hospitals, roads, power plants and homes all destroyed. Everyone from Colorado to California having just the shirts on their backs and no food, shelter or potable water or electricity.
I had been in Manila for over 2 years and was impressed with the solidarity, good heart and strength of the Philippine people in the face of incredible challenges. They pull together. But to those critics of President Aquino’s  administration for not having being prepared for disasters – I answer that it is doubtful if any mortal being or government could deal with 4 million people who overnight became refugees completely dependent on the government.
95% of local government workers in the affected areas are out of action having themselves lost their homes, family members or their lives. Fire, police, medical facilities and personnel and every structure are gone but for foundations in many communities. Many roads connecting communities were either destroyed by the earthquake or washed out by the typhoon. The only way to get aid in is by sea or airlift.
That 4 million plus people are displaced, towns wiped off the map, and over 5,500 dead plus 1,600 missing should not be grounds for criticizing the government for lack of preparedness, but rather the reverse given the big picture involving a super typhoon, an abundance of poorly built structures, and a populace used to 25 to 35 lesser strength typhoons that hit the region annually.
Yolanda aftermath -  The country had never experienced a Hurricane Katrina –  a category   5 storm that devastated New Orleans in the US years ago.   Given that   the Philippines is a democracy and evacuations are not  mandatory       as in some totalitarian countries – many  chose to  remain     behind    despite warnings.
  But many critics being what they are by nature; would not be                     satisfied even if the number of dead were only one.    Mayor  Alfredo  Arquillano   of     the Cebu Island  Tulang Diyot  having  attended    emergency  planning     meetings took the Yolanda threat seriously  and evacuated the entire community of 1,000 residents from the island. Foundations now remain where structures once stood. All souls were saved.  The mayor heard the government warnings, he listened and motivated his constituents to pack up and get out of harm’s way. He was doing his job as mayor.
Philippine President Aquino came into power with the same populist mandate that was given to his mother former President Corazon Aquino – ‘End corruption, grow the economy, create jobs and help the poor.’ During Aquino’s administration the Philippine economy has had the fastest growth rate in Asia surpassing China.
International Corporate investment is pouring in. Over a score of high-rises are under construction in downtown Manila along with new hotels, malls, resort and gaming venues. Philippine manufacturing, agriculture and service industries are growing. And much of the progress is attributed to the government’s new policies of openness, a new pro-business attitude and an anti-corruption campaign.
 This president has much on his shoulders and he shoulders it   well. His calmness and steadfastness gives his countrymen the  heart and confidence they need to hang on in the face of these  heartbreaking events. The Philippines next major crisis may be   finding another man-for-all-seasons when Aquino’s term is up.

The Last Bullfight – by author David de Los Angeles



 A toro escapes a bullfight, crosses the border causing an international incident between the USA and Mexico.  The citizens of each country fearing the other will kill the bull, are demanding possession. The story involves comedic scenes of the military trying to locate it, the Presidents of two countries sparing over it, bull fighting as black comedy and a lazy-assed reporter who can’t stay out of trouble.

The reader will be cheering for the bull as it gets in and out of trouble leaving chaos in its wake on both sides of the border.

Mexico’s Copper Canyon by Hummer for Balderrama Hotels, Sinaloa Mexico

Sinaloa Mexico – Story – Published in numerous newspapers and online.

The Aztec yellow Hummer plunged into the river torrent with the confidence of a Bradley tank, dislodging rocks and small boulders in the process.   We hardly noticed the water rushing past the doors, or the holes underwater big enough to swallow a Jeep, as we indulged in Mexican pastries and strong Chiapas coffee thoughtfully provided by the Mirador hotel’s concierge.  Let nature dare get in the way of this Eco-expedition….

Mayan Princess – Puerto Vallartya (Gayot Restaurant review)

Explore, experience and indulge in Oaxacan cuisine at Mayan Princess restaurant.  Oaxaca is Mexico’s Garden of Eden where a myriad of varieties of food crops, herbs, spices, (cocoa), wildlife and seafood abound.

Chef Juan Gonzalez lived among the areas indigenous peoples studying their food and cultures…  His rich and flavorful traditional Mole’ (mol-lay) sauces can take 2 days to prepare out of dozens of ingredients.   I tried the Mole’ Negro Artesanal served with honey baked duck.  The duck was succulent and the spicy chocolate Mole’ – thick and delicious.  In Oaxacan cooking, the sauce IS the focal point.  What’s underneath is secondary…..

Interview with Surf Legend Mike Doyle   (essay/interview – Destino Magazine)

In Mike Doyle’s autobiography ‘Morning Glass’ he tells of his first ride on a surfboard as a 13-year-old gremmie. “Tiki Mike” caught and rode the wave, then bailed into the water spread-eagled and got whacked in the nuts by the heavy mahogany board.  And he’s never stopped loving it….

….When the surf was down – creative play would often set in.  Doyle and his buds experimented – inventing surf wax in the back yard, made board shorts of boat canvas, acted in early surf movies, and designed and shaped surfboards.  Doyle invented the soft surfboard and the snowboard, both ultimately providing fun and excitement for millions.

 Mexican Rustic – Furniture Salsa  (Los Cabos Mag.)

Mexican Rustic furniture involves elements of Native Indian, Spanish Colonial, Arabic, Mexican Ranchero and sometimes – even Chinese influences.  Americans view it as Southwestern or Santa Fe style while Mexicans view it as a national style.

Mexican rustic furniture is made primarily from soft Mexican pine that grows abundantly in the Sierra Madre mountains near Durango and Chihuahua.  Tarahumara and Tepehuane Indians inhabited the land for centuries prior to the arrival of the Spanish.  After the conquest, the Spanish Crown instigated lumber and furniture production in the region utilizing indigenous Indian labor….

….Today over 500 years later, the tribes are still at work producing wood products on their reservations with demand growing due to the popularity of the furniture in the USA and at home in Mexico.

New Mall Opening Soon In San Jose…   What new mall?

(Discover Los Cabos)

Driving down the four-lane into San Jose del Cabo you pass right by it – hidden away behind Waldos, Burger King and Leys Market are twenty-five more new stores slated to open (God, hurricanes and workers willing) before year-end.

This project should get an award for being the slowest construction project on record.  For over two years the project has been stalling and crawling its way to completion.  It has survived a sale, investor finance changes, a difficult hillside building site, architectural design changes, workers lost in a Mexican time-warp, and a couple of near-misses from hurricanes…
