  1. In charge of two professors with several decades of research, Michael L. Conniff and Gene E. Bigler, Modern Panama: From occupied territory to the center of the Americas, it focuses on the fast-paced Panamanian history since the Torrijos-Carter Treaties entered into force in 1979. Just published by the City of Knowledge and the Novo Art Editor, this work, translated into Spanish by Adrienne Samos and extended by Guillermo Castro, will be presented at the Boquete Library on Sunday, August 18, 2019, at 4:00 pm. The authors will be present to talk with the public and sign their books. ‘Who wants to know our recent past ... you will find in this book almost anything you should know. With this work they give us an extraordinary legacy '. (Alfredo Castillero-Calvo) Bilingual presentation.
  2. Private Interest Foundations in Panama constitute an alternative to Offshore Corporations or Companies and to Limited Liability Companies, because they are meant to provide asset protection, playing an important role, similar to that of a Trust. For this reason Foundations directly compete with Trusts as a vehicle for wealth and estate management, permitting separation of assets between the founder and the beneficiaries, but without necessarily losing control of such assets, as it happens in Trusts. A Private Interest Foundation is the combination between a corporation and a will. In general, a foundation has some similarities with companies; once registered in the Public Registry of Panama, the assets of this legal entity are maintained separated from the incorporators, considering that they are created to maintain the confidentiality of the owners of the mentioned assets. Foundations differ from corporations in relation to the presence of an owner or the need to issue share certificates (corporations). Unlike a Corporation, a Private Interest Foundation can be created as a living will tool. A big advantage of Foundations is their irrevocable nature, which allows them to continue operating for many generations, establishing certain provisions for their operation in the by-laws. In case the intervenients no longer wish to continue the Foundation, they can provide for its dissolution. In contrast, testaments are only intended for a single and particular event. Feel free to email us if you have any further questions. We will be pleased to assist you and guide you through the process of incorporation of your Private Interest Foundation in Panama and any related services. www.gomitom.com
  3. A few weeks ago, I presented this story at the BCP reading group. It was well received and I have gone on to publish it on Medium.com. The story is real, save for one tiny detail. Enjoy... A Haunted Housewarming in Panama Mark Heyer
  4. It seems that the Tugboat Captain's union has decided that the safety of ship transits through the new locks is being compromised by the extended work hours required of the tugboat fleet. Worker fatigue seems to be the primary issue. Some captains have made their point via a work stoppage, and the Canal Authority has "sanctioned" them. Apparently transits are continuing with slower passages and without the forward tugboat. In my opinion, this problem will continue to fester until they increase the tugboat fleet and associated crews by a significant number (i.e. 50% +) https://www.prensa.com/economia/Buques-transitan-nuevas-esclusas-remolcador_0_5007249239.html

  7. The expanded locks of the Panama Canal do not use shoreside "mules" to move and position ships as they make the transit. It seems that early 20th century engineering decisions are better than some made 100 years later. http://gcaptain.com/containership-damaged-in-panama-canals-new-locks/
  8. Hi we live in the Boquete area part-time and would love to purchase a midsize used recent model SUV. Which one(s) the best for driving around in the David/Boquete area? Also needed for hauling stuff and for hauling 4-5 people comfortably... Should we purchase in Panama or in the US and ship it over? Any warnings/ideas/kudos/issues, etc. we should know about? Any suggestions or tips are greatly appreciated! Thank you! D & L

  11. https://booksr4reading.wordpress.com/2016/03/10/a-business-opportunity/ As everyone knows, I’ve been trying to sell the BookMark for a number of years now. To recap, $25,000 for 35K(+/-) books, shelving, furniture, and the goodwill of Panama’s most famous used English bookstore. Retail value for the books alone come to around $250,000. Years ago, we had listed on Alibris nearly 500 books for sale online, the individual value of those books were from $5 to $100, plus we were allotted $10 (paid by Alibris) for shipping, so, if a book only cost $5 to ship, we made an additional $5. There was also a provision for over-sized books. I haven’t kept it up because that was Harold’s thing, plus my motivation was extremely low at the time so I couldn’t be bothered. In any case, since then, I’ve acquired a large number of books from different sources that I have discovered are worth significant money, with a number of them worth over $1000 each. Unfortunately, right now they are sitting in boxes, I don’t recall exactly the titles (they were text books, historical series, etc), but at the time I had checked out the prices on E-bay, and there’s a small fortune to be made. Which goes back to the point, since I’m a lazy, terrible procrastinator…If anyone is interested, they could re-establish the Alibris business, the BookMark receives 50% of the sale. In addition to that, those higher-end books would be sold on E-bay(I’ve seen some of those bidding wars, you’d be surprised), for those books, the seller would receive 25%. The best part, this is something that can be done from the comfort of your home. Of course, at this point, I’m just punting around ideas. We could do a trail balloon and see how it works out. In any case, the person would have to… Have an E-bay account. Have a PayPal account.(?) Perfect English speaker. Have a love and understanding of books. If interested, please contact me and we could work out the details. Ellis_m_1@yahoo.com
  12. The monthly report by the Mayor of Boquete, January 2016 https://youtu.be/PDAVWZeXyis
  13. Here is a one time catch-up post to our Youtube channel and our current inventory of videos available publicly. Going forward, TV Chiriqui videos will be posted here as they become available. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCL_HqV0_vNuvQF-6pwdKA2w Thanks to Bud for setting up this forum. Mike Moore
  14. I appreciate this new Chiriqui Life, and I'd like for the members here also to visit my Delphi forum, Panama Expats, at http://forums.delphiforums.com/panamaexpats It's a great place to keep up with the politics in Panama, the corruption in Panama, and what's happening with Martinelli and his "zero circle" criminals. Sure, you can read those articles in various places, but I glean information daily from numerous sites. At Panama Expats, you can keep aware of current Panama events all in one place. There are also folders about Pet Health & Issues, Health & Nutrition, World Economy & Issues, Humor, Recipes, and much more. And nothing is "off topic." I've hesitated to widely publicize Panama Expats because I don't want it to end up like the yahoo groups with mostly inane blather. I did post the URL on Gringos in David some time back, for which I was severely reprimanded (and banned) for mentioning my Delphi forum there. We have a Chiriqui Happenings folder, but currently there is very little focus about Chiriqui, specifically David, Volcan, and Boquete. I'd like to change that with your help. I can create folders for those topics. Just let me know what y'all want. I'd like for Chiriqui Life and Panama Expats to be PREMIER sources for information regarding Panama and Chiriqui. Thanks for your participation! We hope to see you at Panama Expats. Just like on Chiriqui Life, there's a slight learning curve. Just ask if you have questions, and also the Delphi help team is very responsive and helpful.
