It is always a big relief and quite refreshing to walk into a cool room after being out in the hot sun. But very few of us are aware that prolonged use of air conditioners causes more harm than good. It plays havoc on our skin and hair. Our skins are not sufficiently protected to combat it; the chill of AC pulls out moisture from the skin and leave it feels dry and stretched. The people with dry skin must have noticed that their skin becomes flaky after regular or prolonged exposure to AC, because constant dryness affects the inner layer of the skin.
Former Prime Minister Jean Max Bellerive is probably not happy with having his name mentioned every time there is a reference to the 2010 earthquake recovery or Petrocaribe funds; however he continue to be an important character in relationship to both. This time once again his name was cited in a possible bribery case. The President of Commission of Anti-Corruption, Senator Youri Latortue, this week cited Jean Max Bellerive for possibly receiving close to seven million of American dollars in bribery or kick back by Dominican companies.
Jean Max Bellerive became Prime Minister October 30. 2009 under the government of Rene Preval and was involved in issuing multi-million dollar contracts to some Dominican companies immediaty following the 2010 Haiti earthquake. He was later replace by replaced by Garry Conille following the election of President Michel Martelly

The Haitian cardinal calls for Jocelerme Privert to remain as Provisional President, calling it the lesser evils. Cardinal Chibly Langlois stated that he has been following the political development in Haiti and is concerned about what is going on in currently.

Mr Jonas Coffy who is the current director of the Ministry Social Affairs in Haiti accused Former Prime Minister Evans Paul as being the one behind the recent increase in insecurity in the Haitian capital. He also accused him of stealing government fund while he was Prime Minister. Mr. Coffy was reacting to recent comments made by Former Prime Minister Evans Paul; specifically his statement: "konpoze or dekonpoze" which many people believe to be coded messages promoting public violence. According to Mr. Coffy, " It's a shame that our Judicial system is so weakened. Was it not the weakness of the Haitian justice, a citizen like Evans Paul would have been behind bars a long time ago"
Tony Rodham is the youngest brother of Hillary Rodham Clinton. He is a former repo man, prison guard and private detective who used to work to secure foreign financing for a company. In October 2013, Tony Rodham joined the advisory board of VCS Mining, a Delaware-based company that was planning a gold mine in the Cap-Haïtien and was awarded the contract for carrying mining activities. It was a both lucrative and controversial deal, because Haiti has an estimated gold reserve of about $20 billion and the permit for mining was not issued to anyone in the last 50 years.
In 2009, when Hillary Clinton was at the State Department working with U.S. corporations, she pressured Haiti so that its Parliament does not raise the minimum wage rate to 61 cents an hour from 24 cents. Some memos found from the Wikileaks strongly suggest that the U.S State Department aggressively blocked the proposed minimum wage increase. The U.S Embassy officials in Haiti clearly opposed such wage hike and met several times with the factory owners and in turn, the factory owners directly lobbied against the raise to the Haitian president. The motive behind this move to fix a slave wage rate (less than $5.00 per day) for Haitian workers was perhaps to benefit the big U.S clothing manufacturers like, Levi's, Hanes and Polo.
The President of the CEP, Leopold Berlanger, thinks he has the problem regarding "Mandataires" or poll watchers under control for the next election scheduled for October 9, 2016. Berlanger admitted that what has triggered fraud in the previous election was the phenomenon of assigning blank accreditation cards to over 1 million poll watchers or "Mandataires" and allowing them to potentially cast multiple ballots at any polling station they want.
The current plan is to assign "Mandataires" only to the voting centers and polling stations where they are registered. Leopold Berlanger thinks that will reduce the potential for fraud.
In addition, this time anyone caught cheating will be published in the media with details of their crimes.
After many attempts to resign the CEP, Roudy Stanley Penn now made it official this time. In his resignation statement, he declared that hi is called to do other things. Roudy was one of the spoke person for the new CEP under Leopold Berlanger Jr. He was the campaign manager for Senator Jean Renel Senatus,(Zokiki)

Even six years after the massive earthquake, many people in Haiti continue to hold that Hillary Clinton's State Department and the Clinton Foundation are responsible for a recovery effort that cost billions, but yielded a very little return. The Haitians often claim that earthquake aid money was mismanaged and lucrative deals went to Clinton cronies. To make room for Caracol Industrial Park, a Clintons' signature project in Haiti valuing $224 million, 366 farmers were evicted, valuable agricultural lands were acquired and as per late 2015, it created only 5,000 jobs instead of 60,000 promised jobs.
Hillary's State Department pressed the Haitian government to fix a slave wage rate per day (below $5.00)-- not to raise the minimum hourly wage rate to $0.62 from the prevailing $0.24 per hour.
