    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    I'd guess 15 days, or perhaps 30 at the most.

    COVID-19 vaccine development pipeline gears up

    I don't know. I read the whole article, and it seemed like they were all temporary, but I don't recall for sure.

    Cost of a ticket for international flights goes up due to a tariff increase...

    Although this is not the same thing, I would remind everyone that there used to be a 160 USD "reciprocity fee", (or was it 120?), which Macri canceled in 2016. That was a one-time payment which was valid for years, so this is kind of apples and oranges, but my point is that this is not...

    Why no canned meat?

    Spam is gross, yeah. Good quality corned beef isn't ground meat. It's solid chunks of beef. The best canned meat ever was the old Canadian back bacon in a can. That stuff was really good.

    Why no canned meat?

    The only good thing I have to say about Bovril is that it's not quite as disgusting as Marmite or Vegemite. And frankly, Rich One, I am surprised that a gourmand such as yourself would even mention such culinary abominations. This is also gross. God only knows what goes into that, and I...

    Why no canned meat?

    Yes, it does. Generally "pan de carne" means meatloaf.

    COVID-19 vaccine development pipeline gears up

    https://www.rt.com/news/512736-israel-facial-paralysis-13-covid-vaccine/ Let me stress that this paralysis was apparently temporary.

    Why no canned meat?

    Thank you all for your responses. It would appear that the answer to my question is, "because Argentinos regard canned meat as an abomination". There's no point in producing a product if the local consumers won't buy it.

    Why no canned meat?

    My mother used to make a tuna casserole that was surprisingly good. And it's not bad made into fish cakes with some potato and onion, and fried up. I don't know where you'd get Bay Seasoning here in the southern cone, though.

    Why no canned meat?

    Given the enormous volume of top-quality meat produced by Argentina, I have long wondered why there is so little canned meat available. Once back in 2014, I saw a few cans of corned beef in a market in Las Cañitas, but other than that it's just the usual fish and that horrid paste in tiny cans...

    hey guys

    Craigslist BA has a lot of scammers and con artists in my sad experience. It's not at all like Craigslist in the States.

    Would you like to spend the rest of your life in Argentina?

    Yes, God willing. Argentina has captured my heart, (and I have nothing to go back to). When I climbed on the plane and flew out of San Diego to come here, I promised myself that the guiding motto of the rest of my life would be The First Rule of Italian Driving - "what is behind me does not...

    Probably 493rd time for this question.

    Official rate? Oh nooooo! You're better off with Western Union.

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    Whoa, whoa. Deep breath. You're making assumptions about me that are not valid. I do not support Trump. Neither do I support Biden. I am just trying my best to look at the situation from a neutral point of view, and analyze it the best I can. I do agree that Trump incited those who broke into...

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    You will note please that I put the word "journalist" in quotation marks. This thread doesn't have to turn into a confrontation. Just because people in the US are tearing at each other in a frenzy doesn't mean we expats have to do the same.

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    I'm guessing you haven't seen the actual video. US media have published some confusing video that shows nothing but a bunch of heads. PressTV had the courage to publish the one video that shows the African-American guard shooting the Caucasian woman, and the race issue is probably why the US...

    Kuwaitis are not complaining either. I have many students from various Gulf states, and none of them seem to object to the monarchical nature of their governments. And it's not that they are afraid to complain. Many of my Saudi students have complained quite volubly about the recent increase in...

    What's really amusing is US Sec State Mike Pomposo having the nerve to lecture Venezuela, saying their recent elections were not legitimate.

    COVID-19 vaccine development pipeline gears up

    https://www.rt.com/usa/511616-la-ambulances-refuse-patients/ There's a certain amount of dense medical jargon in this article, but basically LA county ambulance crews are being told not to transport patients with a poor chance of survival. Such patients are instead to be declared dead on the...

    Argentina "Credibility Crisis" WSJ Column

    Yawn. A typical conservative perspective from the WSJ, the voice of the NY bankers... Macri paid off the bankers and massively indebted the country, so they loved him. Alberto is his opponent, and thus the devil incarnate. ... and the usual "peronchos bad" drivel from infobae.
