A Major Time Shift Effective in Venezuela on May 1st

by Chris Holden - April 18th, 2016

In order to help Venezuela’s energy needs, President Nicolás Maduro is reversing a legislation enacted by former President Hugo Cháves. President Maduro recently announced that Venezuela will go back to the old time system before former President Cháves turned Venezuela’s clocks back 30 minutes in 2007. Cháves made this change to allow students to go to school with the light out. President Maduro feels reverting back to the old time system can alleviate the country’s energy problems.

This time shift will put Venezuelan time four hours behind GMT.

The main issue with Venezuela’s energy at the moment according to Danilo Diaz has to do with a massive drought in the Guri reservoir. The Guri reservoir is located in Bolívar State on the Caroni River and its dam provides about two-thirds of Venezuela’s energy needs.

Jorge Arreaza, the science minister in Maduro’s cabinet, reasoned that the “…extra half-hour of sunlight will allow a better electricity saving because it is at night when people return from work and schools that they turn on lights and air-conditioning.”

Some people are skeptical that this measure will work to combat the energy problems facing Venezuela at the moment. Many cite a lack of proper governmental planning and overreliance on the Guri Dam for energy needs.

Either way, this time change will go into effect on May 1st. Both citizens and travellers to Venezuela should be aware of this time shift.




Changing the way we view female cosmetic surgery

by Chris Holden - April 17th, 2016

American cosmetic surgeon Jennifer Lee Walden M.D. is helping to change the way female cosmetic surgery is viewed. In a recent talk she discussed three misconceptions about female cosmetic surgery.

In her talk she addressed the fable that men have fueled the demand for cosmetic surgery to make the female body more desirable. When in reality women are the one’s who want to make changes. Women are seeking the procedures not only to look good but to address medical issues they are having.

A second point doctor Jennifer Lee Walden addressed was that women are not being “vain” by seeking cosmetic surgery. The procedures being performed are fixing problems that women have. Beauty is not the only objective.

The last point she touched on was the false idea that women are not concerned with their ability to enjoy sex. When in fact women do care about their ability to have orgasms and perform during sex. They are seeking help to fix any problem they have.

Doctor Jennifer Walden is considered an expert in her field. She has many years of experience and her own private practice in Austin, Texas. She is a native of Austin, Texas where she attended undergraduate school at the University of Texas and medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch.

Doctor Jennifer Walden did her fellowship in New York City at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital. She spent over seven years on the Upper East Side of New York City before returning home to Austin Texas to start her private practice. In 2014 she opened a satellite office in Marble Falls, Texas.

Among her many accomplishments she serves on the Board of Directors of Modern Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery. Also she is one of the few women who serve on the Board of Directors of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

In one recent post, the article discussed the infamous ice hockey story of the 1980 Olympic matchup between American and the Soviet Union. The coach, Herb Brooks, decided to take a unique approach to building a team and look for young men who could play with each other rather than for a group of men who were each the best at their position. However, even this was not enough to make people believe that that United States had a good chance at winning. In fact, they were saying that the U.S. had a 1 in 10 chance of beating the Soviet Union. Brooks chose to look at it differently. He told his players that maybe they only had a 1 in 10 chance of winning but that tonight was that tenth chance where they were going to win. The post suggested that every entrepreneur should think like this because it will help them put in more effort. has more information about VTA Publications and their holdings.
