Instrucciones porteñas para vivir en Mendoza VI: La lucha antigranizo

En Buenos Aires el granizo es un problema esporádico para la chapería y pintura de los autos, y no mucho más que eso. En Mendoza, y en todo Cuyo, la lluvia en forma de piedra es un peligro durante la primavera y el verano, porque atenta directamente contra la cosecha de la uva, el olivo y todo lo que crezca en esta tierra que era un desierto y la convirtieron en un vergel.
El tema de la lucha antigranizo pondrá a prueba su amor cuando su pareja le explique que una de las herramientas habituales (junto con las mallas protectoras y el seguro) es el ioduro de plata, que se siembra desde aviones o se dispara desde cañones especiales hacia el cielo para derretir el hielo de las nubes graniceras. Usted, gesto desconfiado y mirada suspicaz, sentirá que con esta explicación se está tomando revancha de la conocida, y resentida, picardía porteña que tanto daño hace a los compatriotas de las provincias. Un daño comparable al del granizo, en cierto sentido. El respeto mutuo se irá al mismísimo zanjón cuando le refieran que en cierto pueblo del sur de la provincia buscaban combatir una invasión de catitas con los cañones y usted estalle de la risa al imaginar a las catitas temblando contra un paredón (“Ladislao, ¿dónde estás?”; “A tu lado, Camila”).
Cállese e infórmese al respecto. Luego, mantenga la mirada suspicaz, que nunca está de más, pero no vuelva a reírse de un asunto tan sensible.

Si nada de lo anterior lo convence, preste atención al sordo ruido que se deja oír a lo lejos, en simultáneo con la cortina de agua que cae casi sin aviso cada cuatro horas, durante cinco días seguidos. No son petardos prenavideños, no.

Hola Elizabeth me llamo Juan Pablo, buscando en la web info acerca de MDZ encontre tu blog.
Estas vacaciones -Feb 2010- voy a ir a visitar a la prov por 3 vez, pero con intenciones de a futuro poder lograr mi sueño de dejar atras la jungla de cemento (bsas) y vivir mas cerca de la naturaleza con mi señora y futura hija :)
Quiero recorrer algunas ciudades aledañas al centro para realmente sentirme conectado con el lugar que "quizas" sea el que me albergue el resto de mis dias. Soy un amante de la naturaleza y a pesar q mi profesion no tiene nada q ver con eso hay algo dentro de mi corazon que pide cada vez con mas fuerza irme de bsas. Realmente no se si vos vivis ahi o simplemente estas pasando un tiempo.. pero en tu 1er articulo me senti identificado en un par de lineas.
Si no es molestia te pediria si me podrias pasar un poco mas de info desde tu punto de vista "porteño" como por ejemplo q ciudad vos crees que mas facil de adaptarse mas alla del centro.
Muchas Gracias de corazon y te deseo un muy prospero 2010!

Hola Elizabeth, me llamo Germán, y por razonos de trabajo voy muy seguido a Mendoza. Pero ahora este año voy a empezar a estudiar una carrera alla, y estoy con muchas ganas de ir a vivir a Mendoza, me gustaría tener tu opinion sobre como fue tu adaptacion al cambio, si ya tenias amigos, porque yo empezaria de cero y es lo que me da un poco de duda dar el paso.
Al igual que Juan Pablo me gustaria tener tu punto de vista.
Gracias.

Finally, realize that all the various bookmakers have their own rules and policies regarding how they settle bets done through arbitrage sports betting when they have such irregular results. As with the advice on pricing, be sure to check the rules of the individual bookmakers before you place your bets.

The Parlay System is one of the most famous of betting systems that are commonly used in horse racing. Many have said that contrary to other sports betting systems, the Parlay System has a pyramiding effect on your profit which means your winnings are played on successive wagers.

In July 2006 they finally got what they were hoping for when legislation was passed with a vote of 317 to 93. By passing legislation, it appears imminent that the Wire Act of 1961 is going to be updated to more closely coincide with the internet world of today. Basically, the Wire Act states that it is a felony to transmit bets via wire communications. The next step in the process is for the bill to go in front of the Senate. If they agree with the first round of voting it is safe to say that things are going to change drastically.

And finally, in the first article in this series I mentioned being honest with yourself, because one of the biggest lies I have found that a tremendous number of Bettors are guilty of is denying to themselves how many times their Base Bank has been busted! If you too are guilty of this, please remember that until you face up to the truth with the determination to do something about it, you can't expect to turn the situation round in your favour.

You may not be aware of what banking Internet actually is, and it can be a bit confusing because it has so many names from online banking to PC banking as well as electronic banking and banking online.

This banking Internet option has been very popular not only for customers who want to have some control over their account without having to go to the bank but for banks as well whose man hours have been freed up from performing simple tasks like balance inquiries, account transfers, and the like because the customer does it himself with banking Internet.

This is the truest form of banking Internet simply because these banks only exist online.

When you utilize banking Internet options you are able to access your account, move money, pay bills, and any number of things from any computer with Internet access worldwide.
[url=http://pcinternetbanking.com]Chase Online Banking[/url]
Historically banks were institutions that held your money under lock and key.

Customers now have the freedom to securely perform their banking 24 hours a day 7 days a week, where they can pay bills and set up recurring savings or payments, monitor check clearances and perform other tasks like transfers and balance enquiries through an internet connection.

To help the growth and assist customers to make the change, many traditional banks offer minimal fee or completely free transfers to help customers migrate to their online banking service.

Internet banking has revolutionalized banking with immediate global access to your bank accounts using a secure internet connection.

Another issue that you must stay on top of is price fluctuations from the bookmaker. The prices for placing bets do not just change with different bookies but even with the same. You cannot take it for granted that the prices that are quoted in print like the Racing Post will be valid at the time of the event. With sports betting things can change very rapidly so be sure that the price will be honored before placing your bet otherwise this can seriously affect the outcome of your arbitrage sports betting.

The Martingale System is probably the most famous sports betting system on the planet and actually has nothing to do with choosing the winner of an event but is more concerned with the right odds and money lines. It seems that the gist of the system is that it looks at the statistical probabilities of how many times in a row one may lose and is put into action by placing a bet and then betting again if you win.

The second group fares a lot worse because, unfortunately for them, the variance in the "value" range will be different for each of them, and it will also vary considerably from bet to bet, making the concept of value mere words (and therefore meaningless). he reality is that the majority of people do not have any means whatsoever of identifying "true" value bets.

Luck plays a major role in your winnings through a game of online bingo. Nevertheless, there are certain winning strategies in play at a game of online bingo. Hence, the result of your game depends on these strategies to quite an extent. Employ such winning strategies to enjoy and win good prize amounts at a game of online bingo.
[url=http://www.bingokisses.com]free bingo[/url] play bingo Card selection for online bingo is on a random basis. Some game sites offer you three or four bingo cards while some offer many more bingo cards. Called numbers appear on the screen and normally at duration of ten seconds apart. You have to locate the numbers accurately within the allotted time and mark on your card before proceeding ahead.

With so many different casino and gaming sites on the Internet, it is difficult to know which ones are legitimate and which ones are not. After all, if you want to join the gaming community, you have to decide whether you want to play for money or for fun and prizes. If the former, it is more pertinent to find out what sites are legitimate since you do not want to invest cash into something that is not going to give you a return on your investment.

What you have to do is, coordinate the numbers that are called out by the host with what you have on our sheet, aiming at filling up a pattern reading bingo. The pattern would be announced at the beginning of the game, so you have to be careful to know what pattern you are looking out for. The cards have the b-i-n-g-o letters on rows and numbers running as a column. A host would call out a letter-number combination, which you would have to mark on your sheet. For example if I-34 is called, you will have to look at the I column down to search for number 34. In case you have it, you place a market on it, and so on.

So I bit the bullet -- bought myself a [url=http://www.ordio.com.au/products/Fatman-iTube-ValveDock-Carbon-Edition-2.html]Fatman iTube Carbon[/url] and I've got to say I am extremely pleased. I actually listened to one at a friend's house several months ago and just couldn't get that music out of my head because it blew me away. I searched high and low for a great deal and finally found it at [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I called them up first and asked every question I could think of and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and bought it. Dispatch was surprisingly fast. Everything was perfect. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they dispatch outside of Oz but you won't be sorry if they do.

Best accessory I could have bought...

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
