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

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.

Top 10 Sugar Producing Countries Of The World list 2017 How mush produced sugar in one year full details by noman ali shah 5. Pakistan (63,800 TMT) In Pakistan, sugarcane is a major cash crop and a source of employment for more than 9 million Pakistanis. Naturally, sugarcane help drive the export economy of Pakistan to a significant degree. Although existing mills are efficient in terms of their capacity, Pakistan's government has taken many initiatives in the past to increase the country's overall production. These initiatives have boosted the overall sugarcane production, and because of these the country know realizes an annual production of 63,800 thousand metric tons of the commodity. This gives Pakistan a reputation as being one of the top five sugarcane producers across the entire world. The country exports sugar to the neighboring countries of Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and other central Asian countries. 4. Thailand (100,100 TMT) The annual production of sugarcane has been increasing steadily in Thailand over the last few years. Ideal rainfall distribution, improved cane varieties, and increased use of fertilizers has contributed a lot towards this increase in Thai sugarcane production. Moreover, stable returns from the commercial crop have led to an increase of the sugarcane cultivation area. Its overall export of refined sugar has also now risen considerably because of such factors as a relatively low demand for sugar in Thai domestic markets and inherently low shipping costs to other large Asian economies. Thailand exports sugar to a large number of countries, of which the most prominent ones are China, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, and Japan. It is also a major exporter of molasses products obtained from sugarcane syrups and solids. 3. China (125,500 TMT) An estimated 80 percent of sugar production in China comes from the sugarcane grown in its South and Southwest regions. In fact, the country has a long history of sugarcane cultivation. The earliest records of such suggest that in the 4th century BC, Chinese people were already knowledgeable regarding sugarcane cultivation. However, they did not become proficiently familiar with sugar refining techniques until much later, around 645 AD. Despite being one of the largest producers, China, in order to meet its high domestic demand, imports sugar from other countries as well. Namely, the chief among these are Brazil, Thailand, Australia, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Cuba. Currently, the country is the largest market for sugar sourced from Myanmar. The country has also plunged into the production of ethanol from sugarcane as a full-fledged affair in order to help meet the rising fuel demand of its vast population. 2. India (341,200 TMT) In India, the states of Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, and Bihar produce the maximum quantities of sugarcane. An annual produce of 341,400 TMT was estimated in the year 2015. It is not, however, any wonder that India is one of the largest exporters of sugar worldwide. In India, sugarcane is cultivated for the production of crystal sugar, jaggery (Gur), and numerous alcoholic beverages. It is estimated that the nation's sugarcane industry provides employment for more than 6 million Indians. The country exports sugar to Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Somalia, Sudan, Indonesia, and the United Arab Emirates. India’s sugar export to Iran is declining, however, especially over the past few years. 1. Brazil (739,300 TMT) Brazil tops the list of sugarcane producers, with an annual production of 739,300 thousand metric tons. The South-Central region of Brazil is accountable for more than 90 percent of this national production output. Sugar is the main product sourced from the sugarcane cultivated in this country. However, production of ethanol from residual molasses is now growing more popular, as ethanol is used as a fuel to power automobiles, which Brazilians are owning in larger numbers. Recently, the country has challenged sugar subsidies given by the Thai Government to the sugarcane producers at the World Trade Organization (WTO). These subsidies are likely to affect the global sugar pricing and Brazil's sugarcane market share everywhere.

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.

Ethanol (Alcohol) pump LEAD IN : A joint report by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation says that the growing use of cereals, sugar, oilseeds and vegetable oils to satisfy the needs of a rapidly increasing biofuel industry is one of the main drivers in increasing high commodity prices. The report released earlier this week (July 4), looked at the 2007-2016 period and found that increasing amounts of maize in the United States, wheat and rape seed in the European Union, and sugar in Brazil, will be used for ethanol and bio-diesel production. Brazil is the world's second-largest producer of ethanol in the world after the United States, but is the No. 1 exporter. STORYLINE : Biofuels, which are made from corn, palm oil, sugar cane and other agricultural products, are viewed by many as a cleaner and cheaper way to meet the world's soaring energy needs than greenhouse-gas emitting fossil fuels. The report, an annual 10-year assessment of global commodity markets, says that increasing amounts of crops grown for ethanol and bio-diesel production, is putting pressure on agricultural land and resulting increasing food prices. In Brazil, annual ethanol production is projected to double by 2016 from today. After grinding the cane all liquid is removed.

(31 Dec 2002) Prisoners Allied troops in Afghanistan faced the difficulty of looking after and punishing the enemy troops captured over the past year. Detainees in Sheberghan prison, the largest Taliban detention facility in Afghanistan, endured a grim reality. The cells were damp, wet underfoot and freezing cold. The US army identified every prisoner using DNA and photographs. In March several hundred prisoners were freed after spending five months in Sheberghan The US said they were young men recruited by the Al Qaida network, but who had never actually taken part in fighting. The worst offenders were sent to the US Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. The camp, which became known as 'Camp X-ray', was of growing concern to human rights groups. Inmates, dressed in bright orange jump suits and knitted caps, were kept in open cages and interrogated for long periods of time. They were not allowed access to their families or lawyers. But officials who visited the camp said they were in good health and able to talk freely and openly.

Following the fall of the anti-drugs Taliban, tens of thousands of farmers rushed to start growing poppies again. Afghanistan regained its title as the world's biggest opium producer. When Karzai took office, he was quick to introduce a poppy ban, and moved to crack down on violators.

In the Hindu Kush area, thousands of people were found living on grassy roots and plants to survive. Abdul Ghias was one of those who had nothing with which to feed his family before aid arrived in the villages further down the mountain. He was able to fetch a sack of wheat for his family. But other more remote villages remained out of the reach of aid. Those displaced by the years of war faced a long struggle to rebuild their lives. Despite the new administration and a fragile peace, for many life continued as before, inhabiting sprawling refugee camps, their homes destroyed.
