News and Events, Questions and Answers

What If Local Students Had the Access to Better Internships? - I just met professor Jesús Zárate, the new Principal at the CECYT of Todos Santos. He expressed his concern about the future and aspirations of his students, and he showed a particular interest in expanding the reach of the existing High School Internship Program, currently known as "Prácticas Profesionales." He is of the mind that if young Todosanteños have more opportunities to develop their skills, greater social benefits will follow. He is willing to discuss this topic with managers and owners of small enterprises in Todos Santos; if you want to help or know more, give Professor Zárate a call (612-153-4751) or e-mail him (directorcecyt [ - a t - ] hotmail.com), he is really looking forward to get in touch with local businesses for the purpose of broadening the opportunities of local students. - Tlilcuauhtli telesantos [ - a t - ] cablemagico.com.mx

Good Samartan - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - As a full-timer down here, I have an anecdote that I do not think I could match up in the USA and I am sure we all have one. Time for me to thank this guy for this one.

Recently I was taking a friend to the Cabo airport from La Ventana and my car quit on me just past Los Barriles at Km 103.5. There was a business there (real-estate office Santa Amelia) so I asked if I could push my car into his lot. The owner, Martin Geraldo, said absolutely. A business real-estate finance associate of his, David Lucio, was there and saw my friend go to the side of the road to try to hitchhike to the airport. David, who I only met a minute ago, turned to me and said, "Why don't you take my car and take your friend to the airport? Just be back by 1 p.m. so I can pick up my daughter from school." And handed me his keys.

My friend made it to the airport with plenty of time to spare. I stopped La Rivera to find a mechanic on the way back and he determined he could not fix it so I tried to get my insurance to get a tow truck, but they left me stranded. So I hopped on the next bus back, and had time (two weeks) to negotiate a decent price for the tow because Martin was nice enough to tell me not to worry, that my car was fine and safe where it was. And it was.

I think this exemplifies what we see day-in and day-out in the locals in all of Mexico and why we all love the people here. So many thanks, Martin and David. - Dean (dean [ - a t - ] la-ventana.com) moderator [ - a t - ] bajawesternonion.com

Baja Message and News Forum - A Baja message and information forum for all of Baja is now available. - Don Humphrey, donhumphrey [ - a t - ] gmail.com, pub38.bravenet.com/forum/static/show.php?usernum=3260184674&frmid=44&msgid=0, Baja California Norte

Arm & Hammer Toothpaste - Anybody know where to buy Arm & Hammer brand toothpaste in the area? I used to buy it in Dax in La Paz, but they no longer carry it. - Dale Townsend, milagrodale [ - a t - ] gmail.com, 612- 141-0427

Mac OS X - 10.7 Lion Upgrade Problems - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - To all my Mac friends: Beware. If you are planning or thinking of upgrading to Lion, check again. Much of the software you use is not supported. Specifically Quicken 2007. Also other compatibility issues, so check before you upgrade. I did not and am paying the price. Lots of my stuff does not work. Martha - moderator [ - a t - ] bajawesternonion.com, Baja California Sur

Skycasters Satellite Internet Service Termination In BCS - If you are subscribed to Skycasters Satellite Internet service in Southern Baja, Skycasters announced Friday that next Tuesday, July 26, they will terminate their satellite internet service on satellite T14 at 63° West at 2PM. T14 will be replaced by T14R, which will have no coverage in Southern Baja.

If your satellite Internet system is currently commissioned on T14, you will lose service after this date. In a letter Skycasters sent to its BCS customers this last Friday, they stated they will be shifting their Mexican service from T14 to Amazonas2 at 61deg; West. However, this satellite has very little coverage in Baja and no coverage south of La Paz. I've posted a signal map for this satellite here: http:www.bajasatellite.com/images/amazonas2.jpg

Please contact me if you need more information about this issue. - Alan Thompson, Baja Satellite, alan [ - a t - ] BajaSatellite.com, (530) 903-4257/(01) 555 351 0882, Baja California Sur

Reef is Home! - Seven and a half months missing but home safe now thanks to Becky Deans! Becky Deans (Dr. Mark the Chiropractor's better half) called and emailed me Tuesday, July 19, that Reef was at the "Osprey" house at San Pedrito. Another friend, also named Mark, who is staying there had found her on the beach looking pretty bad with sores and really, really thin. He fed her and took her to the vet and was taking great care of her. It appears as though someone bred her for pups and then let her go. I want to publicly thank both Becky Deans and Mark at the Osprey for their help. Just goes to show that there are some really great people out there who are still willing to help their neighbors and friends, and the world is a better place for people like them! Reef and I both say, "Thank you!" from the heart. - Fidnick Steve, Cabofiddy [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, 612-143-2179, Pescadero
