Iowa State

Iowa State University is well known for their technology programs and research, producing some of the world’s leading theorists, writers, and even astronauts, but what of their sports programs? The Cyclones of Iowa State compete in the Big 12 Conference of the NCAA’s 1st Division, a conference generally recognized to be one of the weaker ones in the NCAA, and it’s safe to say their sports program doesn’t have quite the lustre that their academic pursuits do. In fact their men’s baseball and swimming teams recently got shelved due to budget constraints, leaving the school with just 6 men’s teams, while still fielding 10 women’s teams...

Bolivia – Natural Gas Wealthy

The South American nation of Bolivia is second only to Venezuela in natural gas reserves in South America; third to the United States in the Western Hemisphere. The way these large supplies are managed, distributed, and moderated changed on May 1, 2006, when Bolivian President Evo Morales revoked all allowance of private companies capitalizing on Bolivia’s natural gas rich land. Until that day, private companies such as the Brazilian company, Petrobas, and American company, Exxon Mobile, had been allowed to amass much wealth by exploiting Bolivia’s bountiful natural gas reserves. Morales reflected this idea, remarking, “the time has come, the awaited day, a historic day in which Bolivia retakes absolute control of our natural resources...

My Six Months in Bogota, Colombia

I moved to Colombia back in 2007 to assist a competitor in opening a call center in Bogota. I am in the telephone answering service business. I had been living between my home in Miami and my second home in San Jose, Costa Rica.  My first reaction to the invitation was the same as most people would have.  First you think of drugs, then you think of explosions.
