  1. Here is an article explaining the problem and fix. https://osxdaily.com/2016/02/26/iphone-is-disabled-fix/ If you are unable to get the computer to recognize the phone, then you will likely have to completely wipe and reset the phone back to the factory default.
  2. I do not think anyone is arguing that there isn't a problem, nor that something shouldn't be done. To look at the problem realistically and then to say well lets ban plastic straws is a kin to trying to lower the level of the ocean with an eyedropper. To efficiently target the problem and actually make a difference, it is necessary to look at what plastic items are the biggest contributors. Certainly plastic straws are not a big contributor. It is laughable to say "well at least they are doing SOMETHING". Panama is probably doing more by banning the plastic bags than California is do
  3. There are several ways to do it but the first question is does the person have US Dollars to send or are they converting from another currency to dollars? That can effect the answer as you then must look for the best exchange rate in addition to converting to US Dollars. If the person sending already has dollars, they can go to a Western Union office and send them to you. They will have a "rate" for sending dollars or whatever currency the sending person has. They will need your FULL name, spelled EXACTLY and IDENTICAL to the ID you will be presenting on the Western Union office
  4. As a former 4-wheeler and mudder, I can tell you it is great fun. It is just adults being kids and rolling around in the mud. I can't count the number of times I came home covered in mud and spent the next day or two to clean up the Jeep as well as myself. This is popular in many places, not just Panama, so it is not what I would call cultural. Obviously this got out-of hand and there is always a degree of danger when dealing with off-road vehicles and racing. Thanks for sharing... brings back fond memories for me.
  5. I suspect you may see a change after May 5th of next year when Panama elects a new president. The changes throughout the country can be great, due to the way the political system functions (or doesn't). Since Varela can not be re-elected it would seem possible that the upcoming change could effect policies as great as those that happened after the last presidential election. In 2009, I did not understand why so many Panamanians were so nervous at election time with all the dramatic changes that might occur. I saw it again when Varela was elected. The changes in a relatively small
  6. Today, September 28th, news sources are reporting that Facebook was hacked affecting 50 million accounts or more. It is highly recommended that you log into Facebook and change your password at this time. More information on the hack are available here: https://mashable.com/article/facebook-50-million-accounts-hacked
  7. A sad situation for the dogs. I can't help but wonder why a business like that (even if it is non-profit) would be in a rental property. Even with the best of landlords and the best of neighbors, 20+ dogs in a rental property is bound to cause issues. A rental is never permanent and subject to sudden change. It is just a matter of time. Hopefully all of the dogs can find better living situations. I would hope they do not repeat the mistake of getting into a rental situation with such a large number of animals again.
  8. Here are some thoughts... Signature on a credit card transaction has never been much of a security feature and it has become totally irrelevant with the technology of both the magnetic strip and now the embeded chip in debit and credit cards. Technology has moved well beyond the old days of manual record keeping, done by hand and with a signature added to help mark the paper trail. We have gone from signatures to magnetic strips and now to the embeded chip (EVM) for transaction security. That is not to say that the chip technology (EVM) has solved all the security issues. While
  9. Viva Colombia has wanted to fly direct into Tocumen rather than Panama Pacifico but has been denied because there is no space until the airport expansion is finished. I have read that Viva Colombia (http://www.newsroompanama.com/business/panama-4/striving-to-keep-viva-colombia-in-panama) is said to be considering flying to smaller, regional airports. It sure would be nice if they flew in/out of David, giving everyone another option rather than being forced to go to Panama City.
  10. The other thing that is odd is it stated... "The service will be provided exclusively in the provinces of Panama Oeste, Panamá, Colón and Coclé, mainly for tourism promotion" Why is Chiriqui not included since it certainly falls into the tourism category.
  11. Thank you for your kind words Bud. I now have clients spread across 4 countries and growing, all supported remotely.
  12. I can understand that a flight to Cali might be more strict on this requirement due to where it is located within the country. Cali is at a lower elevation and is known to be very hot which is a good breeding ground for mosquitoes. Discussions like these are a real benefit to everyone because often times information changes or is out-dated. One of my personal pet peeves is that many articles on the Internet are not dated and that leads to confusion when things change over time. I think the other thing that was demonstrated here was the sharing of different view points on personal
  13. As with anything you inject into your body, you should weigh the risks. This is from an article in the Internal Medicine News. Link here: infectious-diseases/yellow-fever-vaccine-contraindications "Decisions regarding vaccination must balance the risk of contracting the disease against the risk of vaccine side effects, Dr. Staples said. The yellow fever vaccine is a live, attenuated vaccine.... ... Safety studies have shown that approximately 10%-30% of vaccinees report mild systemic adverse events. ... ... Serious adverse events associated with the vaccine can include anaphylaxis
  14. Having lived in Colombia for the past year and having visited the country often for the past 5 years, I see this topic come up often. There are two places that "might" ask you about this. The first is the airline you are using to fly to Colombia. The second is at immigration when entering the country. Airlines typically check requirements so they are not responsible for your return if you are not allowed entry. If the airline is not requiring it, it is highly unlikely that immigration in Colombia will ask for it. Also, understand that the requirement is different depending on
  15. Let me make a few comments... This is an obvious hoax and easy to detect based on a few items. First, the supposed source of this information is "According to IT colleagues of my daughter" and "reported on the BBC" without any link to the story or source. I am afraid that "Tricia's daughter's IT colleagues" are not much of a reliable news source unless you believe everything you read. It also states that it will happen in the future (tomorrow), so someone must be psychic if this is to be believed. The next thing is that a simple Google search easily confirms this to be a h
