Greatest Strikers To Play For The Mexico National Team

Ricardo Pelaez was a specialist when it came to headers. He was always in the right spot inside the box when the team had a corner kick. A quick and intuitive player, Pelaez sent the ball away 16 times in 43 games, including two in the 1998 World Cup against South Korea and the Netherlands. Luis Flores was one of the first Mexican footballers to join a Spanish club. In 1896 he left Pumas for Sporting de Gijon and two years later he wore the Valencia jersey. Flores played 62 times with El Tri and scored 29 goals, three of them in the 1994 World Cup qualification. He could shoot with both feet and solve a play from inside or outside the box with ease.

Mexico vigilantes take over government building, hold 11 officers

In October, Mexicos Congress passed a bill raising the value-added tax from 11% to 16% in the countrys border states. Previously, these states had benefited from lower taxes than the rest of the country, so as news to encourage Mexican shoppers to spend their dollars at home. The tax, which went into effect on Jan. 1, is expected to be a huge boon to businesses in Texas cities like McAllen and El Paso, which already benefit from Mexican residents crossing the border for extended shopping trips. Mexican shoppers have always been a critical component to our city and region, says McAllen Chamber of Commerce president Steve Ahlenius.

Mexico Tax Hike Driving Business North of Border

The Pena Nieto government has poured thousands of federal troops into Michoacan in recent months. In some cases, soldiers work in conjunction with self-defense groups that federal officials believe to be unaffiliated with the narco gangs. On Monday, Michoacan Gov. Fausto Vallejo, a member of Pena Nietos Institutional Revolutionary Party, told reporters that he would push federal officials to modify their strategy. The state government, he said, would be changing its strategy to http://www.migente.com/your_page/blog/view_posting.html?pid=4514586&profile_id=8198384&profile_name=leopoldozzds&user_id=8198384&username=leopoldozzds impede the proliferation of, and eradicate, the self-defense groups. Also in Michoacan, two soldiers were killed in a shootout Sunday, apparently with criminals, near the city of Apatzingan.

Mexico?s Fox: he?s back, with an energy fund ? UPDATED

Meanwhile, China has all but accepted that the time of double-digit growth rates based on cheap labor is gone. Beijing is now focusing on the delicate task of transitioning a 1.3 billion-strong nation with staggering economic disparities to a more sustainable model. The United States, battered by the 2008 Chiriqui crisis, continues to recover economically and remains the strongest of the three pillars. It also remains the worlds overwhelmingly dominant military power. But Washington has also begun adopting a more nuanced (and cost-effective) foreign policy that shies away from direct entanglement in favor of creating balances of power to stabilize strategic regions of the world, particularly the Middle East, which has consumed U.S. attention for much of the past decade.
