He was a Dominican Major General in the Ten Years War (1868--1878). He was also Cuba`s's military commander in that country's War of Independence (1895--1898). Gomez retired from the Spanish Army and soon took up the rebel cause in 1868, helping transform the Cuban Army's military tactics and strategy from the conventional approach favored by Thomas Jordan and others. He gave the Cuban Mambises their most feared tactic: The "Machete Charge". On October 26, 1868 at Pinos de Baire, Gomez led a Machete Charge on foot, ambushing a Spanish column and obliterating it. The Spanish Army was terrified of these charges because the maj...

It is not possible to continue exploiting them because we run the risk of over-exploiting them. So we must move toward aquaculture.

Wide shot workers and scientists walking outside near large breeding tanks LEAD IN : Cuba is famous for its coastline and beautiful sea. But concern about the island's ability to feed its population in the future has led to the authorities investing in developing aquaculture with freshwater species, to replace imported fish. STORYLINE: The "Mamposton Aquaculture Center", consisting of 17 hectares in San Jose de las Lajas (30 kilometres outside of Havana) is a centre of excellence for fish farming, especially the catfish and the tilapia. "Mamposton" produces 300 metric tons of fish yearly. Of the 26 fish farms on the island, it is the largest. Authorities are hoping to save millions of dollars by replacing costly imports with locally produced fish. So why cultivate freshwater fish in reservoirs and tanks when approximately 6-thousand kilometres (3728 miles) of coastline surround the island? It may seem paradoxical, but local authorities assured AP that it is all "part of a strategy". According to Julio Baisre, special assistant to the recently restructured Fisheries Ministry of Cuba, the Cuban coastline is rich in beauty but poor as a food source. The ocean's greatest fish reserves are limited to four specific zones: South America, southern Africa, the Mediterranean, and the coast of California. More than 50% of the world's catch comes from those specific areas that amount to only 1% of the world's bodies of water. According to the last official numbers available from 2008, the volume of capture in Cuba for the year was 60,900 metric tons of fish (both freshwater and saltwater) and seafood (lobster and shrimp). In addition another 30,500 tons, came from freshwater fish farms. Cuba buys 30,000 additional tons on the international market to satisfy the country's needs. Authorities indicated that in 2007 Cuba spent 48-million U.S. dollars importing fish mostly destined for sale in the locally subsidised market. According to a recent report from the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organisation, F.A.O., Cuba lacks "sufficient infrastructure and qualified personnel" to work towards the promotion of aquaculture in the future. Cuba exports 81-million U.S. dollars in fish products, primarily lobster and shrimp. The island cultivates 3.6 tons of farmed shrimp destined for Europe.

In 1553, the Spanish conquerors designated Havana’s harbour as a collection point for ships loaded with gold and silver from the new Spanish colonies and named the settlement, San Cristobal De La Habana.La Bodeguita Del Medio was once Hemmingway`s local and nowhere else is the ‘Mojito’ mixed better: three year old white rum, lime juice, soda, sugar, ice and mint. Whether it be the Teatro Marti, the Old Tobacco Factory, the famous Bacardi house, or the Floridita Bar, everywhere there is a feeling of nostalgia. When the Daiquiri is served, one almost expects Fidel Castro to be sitting at the next table. Pinar Del Rio is a small but busy town in which the Red Star and portraits of Che Guevara are displayed for all to see. In the old town, colourful houses with beautiful pillared corridors demonstrate the former wealth of the country’s independent tobacco growers. Time means little here. While observing life on the streets, one begins to think in the same relaxed tempo of the leisurely-smoked cigars. A visit to a tobacco factory is a must. Cuba’s cigars are world famous. Together with sugar, tobacco is the country’s most important export. The oldest geological formation in Cuba are the Mogotes, well-weathered limestone peaks which, supported by pillars, once covered a large complex of caves. Over many decades, subterranean rivers flooded the earth below and thus created these gigantic grottos. On seven manmade islands in the centre of the Cienaga De Zapata National Park, is the Indian village of Guama. This swampy nature reserve with its dense mangrove forest vegetation offers an ideal sanctuary for many rare water birds. No Cuban town has changed as little in two hundred years than that of Trinidad. In the 18th century, the city experienced great wealth and recognition due to the cultivation of sugar cane and the luxurious palaces and villas of the sugar barons still leave their mark on the city. Rich green tropical forests, tobacco country at the foot of mysterious mountain caves, humid tropical swamps, history, cigars and rum. Cuba is a colourful cocktail

Travel video about destination Cuba. Basking in the Caribbean sun, the island of Cuba lies between sun and socialism, rumba and revolution. Havana is the capital. In 1553, the Spanish conquerors designated Havana’s harbor as a collection point for ships loaded with gold and silver from the new Spanish colonies and named the settlement, San Cristobal De La Habana.La Bodeguita Del Medio was once Hemmingway's local and nowhere else is the ‘Mojito’ mixed better. Whether it is the Teatro Marti, the Old Tobacco Factory, the famous Bacardi House, or the Floridita Bar, everywhere there is a feeling of nostalgia. When the Daiquiri is served, one almost expects Fidel Castro to be sitting at the next table.Pinar Del Rio is a small but busy town in which the Red Star and portraits of Che Guevara are on display for all to see. In the old town, colorful houses with beautiful pillared corridors demonstrate the former wealth of the country’s independent tobacco growers.A visit to a tobacco factory is a must. Cuba’s cigars are world famous. Together with sugar, tobacco is the country’s most important export.The oldest geological formation in Cuba are the Mogotes, well-weathered limestone peaks that, supported by pillars, once covered a large complex of caves.On seven manmade islands in the centre of the Ciénaga de Zapata National Park, is the Indian village of Guama. This swampy nature reserve, with its dense mangrove forest vegetation, is an ideal sanctuary for many rare water birds. Legend has it that the Siboney Indians sunk all their possessions in the Laguna Del Tesoro to protect their gold from the Spaniards.No Cuban town has changed as little in 200 years than that of Trinidad. In the 18th century, the city experienced great wealth and recognition due to the cultivation of sugar cane and the luxurious palaces and villas of the sugar barons still leave their mark on the city.Rich green tropical forests, tobacco country at the foot of mysterious mountain caves, humid tropical swamps, history, cigars and rum. Cuba is a colorful cocktail.

All references to “mild” is only a descriptor of flavor. No cigar should be considered to present a reduced risk of harm compared to other cigars. Hirochi Robaina is one of the most esteemed tobacco growers in Cuba, coming from a long heritage in the industry. During a recent trip we took to Cuba, Mr. Robaina showed us around his farms. Not only does he make top-shelf Cuban cigars, he also has a factory in Nicaragua where he practices the art of cigar-making. You can find them here: https://www.thompsoncigar.com/category/CIGAR-BRANDS/HIROCHI-ROBINA/11830/pc/9833.uts

In 1974, intrigued by the promises of communism, then-24-year-old Jon Alpert sailed illegally to Cuba. For the next 45 years, the New York City filmmaker made regular trips to the island, documenting post-revolution Cuba through the daily lives of three families. The NewsHour Weekend’s Christopher Booker spoke to Alpert, whose work will appear in the Netflix documentary, “Cuba and the Cameraman.”

At the beginning of the Malecon you will find this large statue of Máximo Gómez y Báez (November 18, 1836 in Bani, Dominican Republic - June 17, 1905 in Havana. Cuba). He was a Dominican Major General in the Ten Years War (1868--1878). He was also Cuba`s's military commander in that country's War of Independence (1895--1898). Gomez retired from the Spanish Army and soon took up the rebel cause in 1868, helping transform the Cuban Army's military tactics and strategy from the conventional approach favored by Thomas Jordan and others. He gave the Cuban Mambises their most feared tactic: The "Machete Charge". On October 26, 1868 at Pinos de Baire, Gomez led a Machete Charge on foot, ambushing a Spanish column and obliterating it. The Spanish Army was terrified of these charges because the majority (there were at least 200 Spanish casualties in the attack) were infantry troops, mainly conscripts, who were fearful of being cut down by the machetes. Because the Cuban Army always lacked sufficient munitions, the usual combat technique was to shoot once and then charge the Spanish. In 1871 Gómez led a campaign to clear Guantanamo from forces loyal to Spain, in particular the rich coffee growers - mostly of French descent whose their ancestors had fled from Haiti after the Haitians slaughtered the French. Gómez carried out a bloody but successful campaign, and most of his officers went on to become high-ranking officers, including Antonio and José Maceo, Adolfo Flor Crombet, Policarpo Pineda "Rustán", and many others. Following the death in combat of Major General Ignacio Agramonte y Loynaz in May 1873, Gómez assumed the command of the military district of the province of Camaguey and its famed Cavalry Corps. Upon first inspecting the corps he concluded they were the best trained and disciplined in the nascent indigenous Cuban Army and would significantly contribute to the war for independence.
