posted by Jennifer Diaz October 10, 2014 0 comments

Every now and then there is a charity that just plain and simply warms your heart and has you painlessly giving away your money you work so hard to obtain.  The Humane Society of Greater Miami is that charity for me, hence the break from our normal customs and trade posts. Both of my precious pets are from the Humane Society – and I am extremely thankful. 

This is my small way to give back, and I hope you will join me if you are in Miami on 2/28/15!

Aramex Emirates, LLC, located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.), agreed to pay a $125,000 civil penalty to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s (DOC) Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) for the unlicensed export and reexport to Syria, via the U.A.E., of network devices and software without the required BIS licenses.

The Under Secretary of Commerce Eric L. Hirschhorn commented:

Today’s settlement shows the importance of compliance with U.S. law by foreign freight forwarders handling items subject to U.S. export controls.

The items in question could be used by the Syrian government to monitor Internet activity and block pro-democracy websites as part of its brutal crackdown against the Syrian people.

Port Miami Tunnel Opening Celebration!

photoToday was the historic PortMiami Tunnel Opening (where you can watch my video of the first 3 trucks that officially entered the port tunnel)!  A better video can be found here, courtesy of Local 10.
