FMI rebaixa previsão de crescimento para América Latina
De acordo com análises do Fundo Monetário Internacional a economia da América Latina vai se expandir menos em 2013.O Fundo prevê que o crescimento deverá ser de 3,6%. O motivo é o desempenho abaixo do esperado das principais economias da região. Com relação ao Brasil, por exemplo, o FMI espera um crescimento de 3,5%, o que significa 0,4 ponto a menos do que em outubro de 2012.A Mexicana também deverá ter o mesmo desempenho.Ainda segundo o FMI, o cenário global não será positivo este ano. A crise na Zona do Euro não deverá deixar a economia mundial se expandir mais do que 3,5% este ano, 0,1 ponto a menos do que o previsto em outubro. Os especialistas do fundo avaliam que a Eurozona vai ficar em recessão pelo segundo ano consecutivo. ---------------------------------------SHOTLIST:VARIOUS LOCATIONS, VARIOUS DATES, SOURCE: AFPTV SAO PAULO, BRAZIL, 11 NOVEMBER 2011-VAR of crowds on the Avenida Paulista, the main avenue in Sao Paulo-logo of the Brazilian bank Safra on the Avenida Paulista-VAR of banks : Santander (Spanish), Bradesco (private Brazilian bank), Itau (Brazilian bank), Citibank (American)SAO PAULO, BRAZIL, 7 NOVEMBER 2011-VAR of the Brazilian stock exchange (Bovespa)RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL, 20 NOVEMBER 2012-VAR of the 2016 Olympic village under construction, with cranes, tractors and workmenSAO JOSE DOS PINHAIS, PARANA STATE, BRAZIL, 5 OCTOBER 2011-VAR of the Ayrton Senna Renault factory near Curitiba-workmen on a production line of car parts-VAR of the carriage and framework of a car on the assembly line-VAR of workers soldering car partsRIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL, 10 AUGUST 2012-VAR of works in the Maracana stadium including workmen, stands being built, and cranes, with the Christ the Redeemer statue in the backgroundBELO MONTE, BRAZIL, 30 JUNE 2012(at Belo Monte hydroelectric plant, 50km from the city of Altamira in Para state)-VAR of the road joining two islands recently createdon the site of the future drainage canal-views of deforested land around the plant-VAR of the Xingu River and the areas that will be affected by the planned dam construction-VAR of the plant site in the middle of the forest and the river XinguCAMPO NOVO DO PARECIS, MATO GROSSO STATE, BRAZIL, 27 MARCH 2012-VAR of cereals growing-VAR of combine harvesters-VAR of harvest from the air-VAR of harvest being storedMANAUS, AMAZONIA, BRAZIL, 28 MAY 2011-workers trimming orange trees-workers pulling up weeds around orange trees-oranges on an orange tree
Spokane’s first legal marijuana buyers lining up
SPOKANE, Wash. -- The first sales of legal recreational marijuana were not set to start until Tuesday afternoon, but that didn’t stop customers from camping out in front of Spokane Green Leaf overnight. The shop was the only one of Spokane’s three licensed pot shops planning to open Tuesday. READ: What to expect at Spokane's first recreational pot shop READ: Limited supply of marijuana to be sent to pot shops on Tuesday Mike Boyer brought a sleeping bag and food to keep him going throughout the night. "Why not? It's history right here, might as well be the guy to be the first one here," said Boyer. The owner of Spokane Green Leaf told Boyer he would be their first customer. Green Leaf staff spent Monday training employees and prepping the store for customers like Boyer. Two more people joined him outside the store early Tuesday morning. "It's history in the making and we're all very excited. [We’re] ready to open our doors and give customers what they want," said employee Chad Welsh. READ: Differences in Washington, Colorado pot systems The outlet planned to sell pot for between $20 to $25 per gram. Customers can only legally buy up to 28 grams, or one ounce. That adds up to $560-$700 dollars per ounce. Green Leaf, near Country Holmes Blvd. and Division, was scheduled to open its doors at 2 p.m. Tuesday. The two other marijuana shops in Spokane which received licenses from the state were Satori and Green Star Cannabis. CONNECT 2 KREM: Map of Washington state marijuana retailers
