Is Venezuela poorer than Haiti or is this another Fake news?

Flag of Venezuela and Jacmel, haiti

Is this true or is it just another fake news? It has been reported that Venezuela has been designated as the poorest country in the hemisphere. Haiti has been occupied the position as the poorest country in this emisphere for many years. But according to an undefined survey, Venezuela that ironically has been one of Haiti's best friends and a strong supporter economically, has become so poor itself that it has fallen below Haiti to become the poorest nation in this atmosphere.

I will need a grain of salt to swallow this one!

Louis Dejoie: Agricultural Entrepreneur Pioneer

Louis Dejoie, a political leader in Haiti with Daniel Fignole

Like the Americans idolize Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg, the Haitian agricultural community idolized equally Louis Dejoie, an exemplary genius agricultural minded entrepreneur.

Growing up, Dejoie's name was a house on his own. Everyone knew, heard or had an idea of who he was. To put it bluntly, he was a genuine agricultural entrepreneur godfather. Nowadays, seemingly youngsters in Haiti barely have a genius role model to look up to or to inspire by. As they progress in life, they become severely damaged by the Raboday "Syndrome" and they start searching for Setters for aspirations and role models.

Born in Port-au-Prince from the aristocratic/elite class, Dejoie was an agricultural pioneer in his own right. His obsessed fascination for agriculture had led him to travel great distances across the Atlantic to master so many agricultural subjects and techniques, from agricultural chemistry to agricultural entrepreneuria. He alone installed and created more than a dozen agricultural businesses throughout the country from Ile-a-Vache, Port-Salut, Cayes, and Miragoane to St Michel de l'Attalaye with more than 50,000 direct employments in the agricultural sector only. His agricultural prowess was unmatched. He was so convinced that Haiti, as a primary agricultural country, has the potential of becoming an agricultural force as it had been during the colonial times. His high IQ and his passion made him a true agricultural genius amongst his fierce competitors. Even though he was a senator, his political ambition was even larger than life. He was so driven that he was willing to take matters on his own by running for presidency until he was defeated in the presidential campaign in the late 1950's.

A call to boycott all fake Soup Joumou out there

New Year Independence Day - Soup Joumou or Pumpkin Soup

This must be stopped and it must be done sooner rather than later. We must keep the integrity of the Haitian Pumpkin Soup, better known as Soup Joumou or Haitian Independence soup. Let me be direct, Haitian Soup Joumou must be made with beef and not chicken. The rich beef and bone marrow, was missing. Call a soup made with Chicken anything you want, but please don't call it Soup Joumou.

I have noticed a recent trend to move to a Soup Joumou made of Chicken and not beef as it is supposed to be. You might say that "Roland Mache Frite Anpil Kay Moun" or " Roland go out a lot to eat in people's houses". I don't care. However, last January, I was invited to eat my Soup Joumou in 5 homes, mainly Haitian friends and family members. I have got to tell you I was disappointed. Three of those houses served me the Soup Joumou made with chicken and not beef. I was so disappointed to the point I almost left without eating the Soup. Reasoning finally wan and I decided to take it home so that I could eat them during the week.

Charcoal: Haiti's Dark Enemy

Haiti Charcoal Contributes To The Degradation Of The Environment

In Haiti, Drought is usually believed as a natural disaster beyond human control. But as researchers carefully look into the earth's changing bio climate, and the symbiotic relationships between livings organisms and climatic forces - They come to realize the crucial role of Deforestation.

For decades, we've been ecologically destructed our own habitat in the pursuit of financial stability without reminding the consequences of our mass destructively demolition. No mistake about it, deforestation brings lots of unexpected effects on our own Soil and results in many consequences.

Deforestation also leads to soil erosion, floods, climate change, health issues, ecological degradation, biodiversity, and wildlife extinction, and lastly community devastation to name a few. Even though, all of these actual facts are scientifically proven to be true, Haitians seem to be careless, selfish, and even ignorant about the problematics/consequences. Instead, they cut down massively the forestall trees to make Charcoal as the primary source of fuel consumption for cooking. Consequently, Haiti remains still one of the most deforested nations in the western hemisphere.

What if the Bible gets Updated?

Bib-la, The Haitian bible

Since the dawn of Times, shifting temperatures, rising sea levels, natural disasters, and Change in Genes have ordinarily happened. These events happened consistently Over Time. Lately, The World has witnessed a cascade of genetic drifts that altered dramatically all Sorts of Species.

Surprisingly, The World Became a "New World of FEAR" BUT the BIBLE has NOT Been Scientifically updated YET to Evangelize This new Changing World.

I know and I Understand the implications about how People view this matter, sometimes they even deny the whole idea of it. This Ostensibly Difficult Task has to be Acknowledged/ Considered as new ways of Teaching the Bible/Gospel to the Christian World such as Catholics ,BAPTISTS, Adventists, Jehovah Witnesses, Pentecotists, and Vodoyisans..!
