The membership of Venezuela in the Common Market of the South (Mercosur) implies "managing its incorporation" for the purpose of "protecting the domestic production apparatus," said Eduardo Parcarelli, a professor on economic law and integration at the Central University of Venezuela. 

During the international conference entitled "Venezuela into Mercosur," an event organized by the Venezuelan Council on Foreign Affairs (Covri) and the Higher Institute for International and Diplomatic Studies, the specialist remarked that Venezuela "cannot erect an isolating wall," because said integration is positive. Parcarelli also expressed the need for negotiating longer terms so as to allow the Venezuelan products to be competitive vis-à-vis the ones of other Mercosur member countries.

Meanwhile, Rafael Quirós, a petroleum consultant for the Central Bank of Venezuela and a professor at the UCV, said, "there is no other commodity as important as oil for bolstering and encouraging integration. Everything is related to oil, especially in a region where everything starts and ends in a barrel. "Oil is the main ingredient of integration."

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
