  1. The U.S. Embassy in Panama is pleased to announce its new passport renewal by mail for the convenience of U.S. citizens residing in Panama. Beginning May 2, 2016, eligible adult U.S. citizens will be able to renew their passport without appearing in person at the Embassy. To qualify for the program, you may renew your passport by mail if your most recent U.S. passport: · Is undamaged and can be submitted with your application; · Was issued within the last 15 years; · Was issued with 10 year validity; · Was issued in your current name or, if you have changed your name, you can submit legal documentation such as a marriage certificate to prove this change; and · You are resident in Panama. Detailed information on the procedures for renewing your passport by mail, including payment and mailing instructions, can be found here. If you do not qualify for passport renewal by mail, or if you prefer to renew your passport in person at the U.S. Embassy, please follow the instructions here. We strongly recommend that U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Panama enroll in the Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) at https://step.state.gov/step. STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency. You can also download our free Smart Traveler App, available through iTunes and the Android market, to have travel information at your fingertips. Regularly monitor the State Department's website at http://travel.state.gov, where you can find current Travel Warnings, Travel Alerts, and the Worldwide Caution.
  2. Teaser here. We are working on a podcast that discusses farm raised fish, among other subjects. The podcast should go public within a couple of days. My take is that farm raised fish will only continue to grow in importance, given that demand continues to go up (increasing population) and supply declines (oceans being fished out and the regulatory environment becoming more aggressive). Stay tuned here on CL as it was a good interview that Mike did.

    Corrected. Probably a timezone error on the computer used to post this event. I have sent a PM to the originator.
  4. Chiriqui.Life (CL) has many "nice-to-have" features built into it. One of them is to show the location of an event that has been posted on CL's calendar, using the Google Maps geographical map panel within an event. Because Panama is not as well documented as many other regions of the world, use of the Google Maps is at times difficult to configure properly. The purpose of this Q&A is to document what the more popular location configuration parameters are for various places in the Chiriquí highlands. As an aside, one of the things that the CL staff has been doing over the past several months is to edit the Google Maps application database so that more of the Boquete area locations are configured in its database. Anyone is free to do that, but it can be somewhat daunting to sign up, sign in, and then do it. But if you are so motivated, we would encourage you to do so. Please take note: it doesn't matter what the "official name" of an entity might be, nor what you think the address might be; the important concept here is that Google Maps is controlled by Google, and Google decides how things are called, or what their address might be. What is provided below is what works with Google Maps. If you do not agree with their names or the associated location data, then it is incumbent upon you to take the matter up with Google. We've tried, and failed repeatedly. What follows in the replies to this question in our Q&A forum are the correct parameters to enter for the Google Maps data fields while posting (or editing) an event on the CL calendar. These replies will be added as new locations become configured by Google Maps. CL members can also add replies with these configuration parameters in case we have overlooked something of importance.
  5. A good idea. Now to figure out how to implement using our software. Give us a bit of time to research some options.
  6. Maggie's List (our pet care resource listing) shown above was updated today to Issue 1.16 with expanded location information for Laboratorio Dixon. We have chosen to use a hotlink to Google Maps for a graphical display of the location for this laboratory.
  7. Pet Care Resources of the Chiriquí Province (Maggie's List), and Pet Abuse (Issue 1.16, Re-published April 12, 2017 with one minor edit.) As a lead-in and related topic, there are legal restraints against the abuse of domestic animals in Panama. For those who wish to read the applicable statute, there is a separate topic here on CL that provides both the Spanish and the English language versions of Panama's Law 70, dated 18 October 2012. Here is a link to that topic: http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/2442-animal-protection-act-of-panama/ Below are various categories of resources in the Chiriqui Province that (a) support, (b) provide services or products related to, and/or (c) deal with pets. These resources are listed in alphabetical order based on the category name. Some of the listed resources are not located in the Chiriquí Province, but may be of interest to pet owners while in transit or needing pet relocation services. If you have additional resources that you would like to have included in this resource listing or corrections to information found here, please send your suggestions via email to petvet@chiriqui.life.

  10. Hotel Finca Lérida Coffee Plantation and Finca Lérida Note: Google Maps has two entries for what is commonly referred to as "Fiinca Lérida". One is for the restaurant and one for the lodging. Either one of these will normally be sufficient for location data, however, the vast majority of people think of Finca Lérida as meaning the "Hotel Finca Lérida Coffee Plantation" because that is where the restaurant is located. If in doubt, we recommend that you use the Hotel Finca Lérida Coffee Plantation entry.
  11. Seasons Restaurant Note: this entry is specifically for Seasons Restaurant, which is separate from the entry for Lucero Golf and Country Club (see above). To add the additional line for the "Carretera La Estrella" part of the address, simply click on the "+" sign to the right of these fields.

    I make the same request of you that I made of MBA2wikde: send a PM with a phone number and we will help diagnose the problem. Before posting these kinds of documents they are fully tested using different browsers and different machines, etc. Obviously something is broken, but we have no way of knowing without diagnosing it.
  16. until

    Can you send me a PM (private message) with a phone number, and I will call to help diagnose the problem. We've received several comments thanking us for posting the presentation materials, so it is reasonable to say that there is nothing wrong with the PDF itself, which leaves only a couple of options. We are willing to help, but it would be best to handle via telephone. To send us a PM, click on @Admin_01 and then click on the message icon (it looks like an envelope).
  17. Judy, Not sure what the problem is here. Did you not see that this topic, as it currently exists, consists of two pages of replies? It appears you are only looking at the second of two pages. Trying to figure out how serious you were about this posting; or were you just joking? No, things do not get deleted from CL except in extraordinary circumstances, which is not the case here. Further, are you not aware that if there is a section of quoted text in a posting, that you can go to that quoted text by clicking on the curved, right-pointing arrow that is to the far right of the citation for that quoted extract? Try it; it works great. To date there have been 31 attempts to hack into CL, all of which have been unsuccessful. Most of the attempts have come from Russia, but recently several from China, and a few from Europe and Africa. Monitoring of and preventing such activity is a routine management requirement for any responsible website administrator.
  18. De nada. It is a cool "map". I would have used the word "chart" to describe what was being displayed, but that website specifically labels it a "map". Oh well, so much for my naval training. It turns out that the only way to post the interactive version (given my current level of knowledge) is to use HTML code. That is something that only admins are permitted to do here on CL because it is very easy to destroy a website by using those powerful tools. Damage to a website can be either unintentional (e.g., simply making a typo), or intentional (the so-called bad dudes/dudettes). Most people do not think about those issues, but website owners have to protect their websites. So far in CL's life we have had about 30 attempts to hack CL, mostly from Russia, but one in particular from an African country. That is more than once a month. Such is life nowadays.
  19. Thank you Siempre. You saved me some time. If you look at the map on their website, it is not a static display as shown here. Interesting. I just wonder where they get the underlying information to make such a chart. My interpretation is that the Middle East, Europe and SE Asia are more active with migration as compared to the Americas. Others may see things differently, however.
