Since the Venezuelan oil basket stands at USD 106 per barrel, Venezuelan opposition governor and former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles rejected via Twitter the Government's decision to devalue the national currency.

On his Twitter account, Capriles remarked that the Government had spent all the money in the 2012 election campaigns, corruption, and giving away money to other countries. He claimed that the Government has misled people.

On Friday, the Venezuelan Government announced an adjustment (46.5%) in the foreign exchange rate, from VEB 4.30 to VEB 6.30 per US dollar. 

The opposition leader also recalled that during his presidential campaign last year he suggested the Government not to devalue the currency and stop giving away money to other countries.

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.
