    What's an effective way to promote a food product in BA?

    https://wagashi.com.ar/ They deliver city wide and only make to order. Never too sweet and always more delicate in flavors and textures for those who prefer that over sugar-bombs. Plus they look amazing. Japanese cheesecake is more like a sponge cake however but I think they have western style...

    100 Million dollar boondoggle coming down the pike. It’s pure genius.

    The article is 04 JUL 15 - is there more recent coverage on this? IF Argentina absolutely must spend money on defense right now... the immediate issues are obvious and maritime in nature. Not an invasion of Bolivian calvary on the Northern Border or Chilean gunboats to the South (who are too...

    How Pfizer tried to bully Argentina and Brazil in exchange for vaccines

    I don’t see Pfizer as having tried to “take advantage of Argentina”. The reality is that Argentina is one 195 countries all wanting the same scarce resource. Pfizer was offering pricing comparable to all other private (and semi private or public) companies selling vaccines, which like it or not...

    How Pfizer tried to bully Argentina and Brazil in exchange for vaccines

    On point 2 - didn't Sputnik receive a similar protection from the Argentine government to protect it from liability? Good luck taking up a law suit in Russia if the sh!t hits the fan... (or they fail to deliver against the timelines set in their contract that result in additional out of pocket...

    Recommendations for wedding celebrations?

    Park Hyatt would be nice for a small gathering as it has a great garden and restaurant that make for great photos, plus a night there for the newlyweds could make a nice gift. Prices are not so insane either. Will be attending one in a few weeks at Faena so can tell you how that goes later.

    To get or renew your driver's license, you will have to complete courses on patriarchy, masculinity and gender.

    Wouldn't it save more lives on Argentine roads to educate drivers renewing their licenses on road safety instead?? While I admire the effort to educate the general population on these themes, one has to question the medium involved as certainly they are not the only issues people need education...

    Any rumors on when you can fire people again in Arg?

    Hm. The advice I have received in the past is that if there is money exchanged in the process (aside from potentially unpaid leave balances etc.) it is potentially no longer a resignation but a dismissal should it ever end up in court. Hence in the future it could come back and bite if the...

    Any rumors on when you can fire people again in Arg?

    Not legally supported options to my knowledge ... You could offer an informal settlement but no guarantees it won’t come back to bite. Alternatively you could be creative and try to find her another placement in another household or workplace which is slightly more attractive so that she may...
