¿Cansado de pelar ajos? Aquí te decimos cómo hacerlo sin mucho esfuerzo (+Video)

Pelar ajos con las manos puede llegar a ser un fastidio. ¡Lo sabemos!

Si estás cansado del olor y de perder tiempo pelando ajos, con este sencillo truco podrás hacerlo sin mucho esfuerzo.

Sólo necesitas un simple frasco de cristal que sea bastante ancho, ya que tenemos que meter el ajo entero dentro. Cerramos bien la tapa y lo agitamos muy fuerte durante aproximadamente un minuto.

Tras ese tiempo veremos que los dientes de ajo se han soltado. Abrimos la tapa y retiramos la piel del ajo para meter los dientes otra vez en el bote. Entonces, repetimos el mismo proceso.

Ahora sólo tenemos que volver a cerrar el frasco y agitar otro minuto con fuerza para que las cáscaras que recubren los dientes de ajo se desprendan. Vertemos los dientes encima de la mesa y vamos separando con los dedos las pocas pieles que siguen pegadas a los ajos.

¡Ya los tenemos listos para cocinar!

Prestige Builders Group seeks rezoning to build 212 apartments in Hialeah

An affiliate of Miami Lakes-based Prestige Builders Group proposed a development that would replace an industrial property in Hialeah with 212 apartments.

The affiliate of Prestige Builders, Hialeah 7.65 LLC, applied to Hialeah’s municipal government to build a nine-building apartment complex on the site of a 62-year-old industrial building.

The developer paid $10.5 million in 2017 for the industrial property at 7755 West 4th Avenue (Red Road) in Hialeah, just south of Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport.

Prestige Builders plans to ask the city to rezone approximately half of the 5.2-acre site for apartment development. Albert Gonzalez is the project’s architect.

The Hialeah City Council may consider whether to approve the proposed rezoning on June 12. The council approved a platting of the site into two parcels on May 22.

Javier Vazquez, an attorney with Berger Singerman who represents Prestige Builders, told the South Florida Business Journal that 2.45 acres of the development site along Red Road would not be rezoned.

Vasquez also told the Business Journal that Prestige Builders built an 82-unit apartment property on a nearby site in Hialeah. In January, Prestige started construction of a 174-unit apartment property at 7925 West 2nd Court in Hialeah. [South Florida Business Journal] – Mike Seemuth

Argentina destinó 1.900 pulseras electrónicas contra la violencia de género

Argentina destinó 1.900 pulseras electrónicas contra la violencia de género

El Gobierno argentino destinó este viernes 1.925 tobilleras electrónicas como medida cautelar para proteger a las mujeres víctimas de la violencia de género en el marco de procesos judiciales.

El objetivo del proyecto es que la víctima de violencia de género pueda “retomar sus actividades cotidianas fuera y dentro de su residencia” sin quedar desprotegida por el organismo estatal, aseguró María Fernanda Rodríguez, subsecretaria de Acceso a la Justicia.

Durante la primera fase se entregaron 144 dispositivos a las provincias de Córdoba, Mendoza, Salta, Buenos Aires, Chubut, Neuquén, Santa Fe, La Pampa y Tierra del Fuego.

Fuentes oficiales recalcaron que lo que se pretende es integrar al mayor número de provincias restantes a la plataforma de protección, así como lograr aumentar el número de equipos en las jurisdicciones.

“El uso de estos mecanismos de protección representa un cambio de modelo para la atención ante esta problemática”, afirmó Rodríguez.

Su puesta en marcha a nivel federal, se enmarca en el Plan Nacional de Acción para la Prevención, Asistencia y Erradicación de la Violencia contra las Mujeres del Gobierno Nacional.

Este proyecto está en consonancia con la Ley de Protección integral destinada a “prevenir, sancionar y erradicar” la violencia contra las mujeres en sus “relaciones interpersonales”, explicó el gobierno.

La iniciativa “Ley Modelo para la Creación del Equipo Judicial Especializado en Violencia Intrafamiliar y Sexual” fue llevada a cabo por el Ministerio de Justicia y Derechos Humanos y proporciona además asistencia integral especializada de manera gratuita y oportuna.

Landmark Club in Aventura sues county over alleged damage from nearby pump station’s stench

Landmark Club in Aventura sues county over alleged damage from nearby pump station’s stench

Something’s rotten at an Aventura condominium complex.

For nearly four years, the foul odor of raw sewage from a nearby Miami-Dade County pump station has made life at the Landmark Club an unbearable stinky situation, according to a recently filed lawsuit.

The noxious fumes were so bad that the pipes in Landmark Club’s ventilation system cracked, causing it to fail, the building’s condo association alleges in its May 11 complaint against the county. The lawsuit accuses the county of failing to fix the pump station, and the association is seeking more than $1 million damages, including the cost of repairing the ventilation system.

A Miami-Dade spokesperson said the county doesn’t comment on pending litigation. Landmark’s lawyer, Francisco Tourron III, did not respond to requests for comment.

Residents of the Landmark, at 20185 East Country Club Drive, began complaining about sewage gas odors in the building in 2014, at about the same time that the building’s original ventilation system began failing, according to the complaint. The vent system was supposed to have a life expectancy until 2065, the condo association claims.

In June 2014, a professional engineer hired by the condo association reported that sulfur-bearing media was entering the pipes from the county-maintained sewer system. The fumes plugged the pipes with limescale that caused them to crack, the lawsuit states. The condo association claims it spent $1.6 million to repair the pipes and install a new vent system.

Two years later, another report by a professional engineer found that the new vent system was under pressure from sulfuric gases entering the building through the county’s main sewage pipe and that originated from a nearby pump station, Landmark alleges.

“The pump station’s supply was venting gases directly into the building,” the lawsuit claims. “In essence, its fan was moving in the wrong direction. After the precise cause of the problem was identified, Landmark attempted to mitigate its damages by opening temporary vents for the sulfuric fumes to flow through.”

According to the 2016 report included in the suit, Landmark’s investment into a new vent system would be “short-lived” if the county did not resolve the problem at the pump station.

The lawsuit states that the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department inspected the pump station on Feb. 17, 2017 and determined that the fan was not operational. The condo association sent the department’s then-director, Lester Sola, warning him that the county was putting lives in danger by not fixing the pump station fan.

“Such action brings about a very dangerous situation due to the possibility of methane gas buildup within the municipal sewer line as the airflow remains stagnant as absolutely no ventilation is present,” the letter states. “Due to the severity of this situation and the substantial damage to the association, immediate steps must be taken.”

Landmark’s lawsuit alleges the county has taken no steps to repair the pump station.

Diseñador ubano René Ruiz innovó en el Miami Fashion Week con telas recuperadas

Diseñador ubano René Ruiz innovó en el Miami Fashion Week con telas recuperadas

El creador se destacó en el segundo día del Miami Fashion Week, por diseñar piezas usando telas  recuperadas del pasado. “La inspiración de esta colección para el 2019, me llevó a reciclar aquellos tejidos que han estado en tiendas por mucho tiempo y no les han dado uso o no las compraron”, aseguró .

Por Luisiana Ríos/Miami Diario

“Quería retarme a mí mismo y hacer una cosa diferente,  que fuese más fresca y que cualquier persona pueda ponerse”, dijo René . En su desfile no quiso usar los acostumbrados tonos que caracterizan las colecciones de resort , más bien predominaron los tonos pasteles, azules metalizados, piezas de jean y no faltaron los trajes de baño.

René en respaldo a la causa del Presidente Honorario del MFW Antonio Banderas, contó que en su colección para este año, usó las telas recuperadas para no impactar al  medio ambiente. 

“Antonio Banderas está a la vanguardia del Miami Fashion Week  y ha creado un movimiento en donde los diseñadores nos tenemos que unir. “Antonio tiene un corazón increíble y queremos que el Miami Fashion Week no sea solo para diseñadores latinos, también queremos que vengan de todas partes del mundo”, dijo Ruiz.

El desfile  culminó con su propuesta de traje de novia, blanco y fresco “para una boda en la playa, casual y muy relajada”, comentó.

René Ruíz se considera  un producto de Miami , sin embargo “soy cubano, me gustan mis raíces cubanas y mis costumbres”. El diseñador  logra en sus creaciones un equilibrio entre la artesanía del viejo mundo y el glamour moderno, combinando “sensualidad sensual de Miami con elegancia elegante”.

La colección Rene Ruíz está disponible en las tiendas Rene Ruíz ubicadas en Aventura y Boca Raton, en exclusivas tiendas especializadas en todo el mundo, Neiman Marcus y Saks Fifth Avenue. El Aventura atelier también exhibe colecciones únicas de alta costura personalizadas, listas para llevar, nupciales y para hombres, y se puede visitar de lunes a sábado con cita previa.

Fed says Deutsche, NYC’s most active CRE lender, is “troubled”

Fed says Deutsche, NYC’s most active CRE lender, is “troubled”

Deutsche Bank’s U.S. operations received a “troubled condition” assessment from the Federal Reserve last year, prompting the bank to take measures to decrease risky lending operations and trading.

Deutsche was the most active lender in New York commercial real estate between October 2016 and September 2017, with more than $6 billion given in non-construction mortgages and more than $2 billion in construction loans.

As a result of the Fed downgrade, the bank has had to seek approval from the feds on hiring, firing and even employee transfers. The rating, which was reported by the Wall Street Journal, judges a bank’s capital adequacy, asset quality, management, earnings, liquidity, and sensitivity to market risk, and they receive a score of one to five, five being the worst. The “troubled” designation is given to banks with a four or five rating.

The Journal cited sources that said a subsidiary of the bank, Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas, was given a “problem bank” rating by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the government body that provides it with insurance.

Deutsche Bank shares fell 6 percent Thursday. A spokesperson for the bank said in a statement to the Journal: “We have previously indicated that our regulators have identified various areas for improvement relating to our control environment and infrastructure. We are highly focused on addressing identified weaknesses in our U.S. operations.”

However, the bank’s bold lending moves in New York came as it posted losses of €5.6 billion in revenue from the bank’s core businesses between 2015 and 2017. Last month, it appointed its new chief executive, Christian Sewing, to focus on financial services to European companies, rather than global markets.

Meanwhile, prosecutors have scrutinized a $285 million loan from the bank to Kushner Companies finalized a month before the election, when President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner was still company CEO. [WSJ] — David Jeans
